WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…
THE BORDER WALL-KIDS-IMMIGRATION ISSUES…
*With families being separated upon apprehension, President Trump declared the lack of a border wall a “national emergency”. There have since been legal and legislative battles initiated over this. But what about the health/safety of all the “detainees”???
NOTE: While we are doing our best to provide coverage, the above is a serious, ongoing issue. Especially since no one has yet to discuss the costs of separating families and who is truly responsible for the deaths of FOUR “detainees” (known to date), let alone if anyone might actually be making a profit from this situation.
THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION…๐Ÿ—น
*The Central Intelligence Agency suspects Russia and Vladimir Putin of influencing the election in Trump's favor!
*Despite what Trump and other Republican's claim, there was no intentional attempt at fraud. It's the temp's fault.
*If it happens, will Trump be a “gracious” loser??? It’s doubtful. (There are 3/THREE separate links in this item.)
POLITICALLY…

SOCIAL (IN)JUSTICE… (originally just George Floyd news)
๐Ÿ˜ทTHE US VERSUS COVID-19… (separated from the purely political news)
*The state of your state, from two different perspectives. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
IT’S FACT CHECK TIME!
REPLACING RUTH (the battle for Ginsburg’s Supreme Court position)
*♫There’s battle lines being drawn...♫ Republicans versus Democrats. (There are 4/FOUR separate links in this item.)
*What is Mitt Romney planning??? (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
