AM๐Ÿ˜ทNGST EVENTS AROUND THE W๐ŸŒRLD THIS PAST WEEK…
*The state of the world, as of May 15, 2021. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)

THE TERRORIST REPORT…
*The Free Choice E-zine does not support terrorism, no matter what the “cause” or alleged “justification”. Thus we will only be posting news items in this section whenever terrorists are brought to justice.

THE CLIMATE CHANGE CHRONICLES…๐ŸŒ

๐Ÿ˜ขPASSING PARADE…
*Actor Norman Lloyd (St. Elsewhere, Dead Poets Society, more) has taken his last bow on life’s stage.
*Actor Jaime Garza (The Falcon and the Snowman, 1982’s Missing, more) has taken his last bow on life’s stage.

WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…
THE BORDER WALL-KIDS-IMMIGRATION ISSUES…
*“President” Trump declared a “national emergency” to build his border wall, separating families upon apprehension. President Joseph Biden nullified the emergency, but other matters pertaining to these issues still have to be dealt with.
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 health and safety of all the “detainees” as well as the various costs under Donald Trump 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.
CAPITAL CHAOS: JANUARY 6, 2021>AFTERMATH
POLITICALLY…
*The Biden Administration has restored LGBTQ+ protections, at least for health care workers.
*“So what are your ideas?”—President Biden to Republicans on the Infrastructure.
SOCIAL (IN)JUSTICE…
๐Ÿ˜ทTHE US VERSUS COVID-19…
*The state of your state, from two different sources. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*A friendly reminder. Air travelers MUST wear masks!
*But elsewhere??? That is the question. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
IT’S FACT CHECK TIME!
*What Republicans are saying about Dr. Fauci. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
MEANWHILE, IN CONGRESS…
*Liz Cheney, calling “Trump a threat” and his supporters “A danger to democracy,” will not back down on her position. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*But her fellow Republicans still removed her Congressional status anyway. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*Does Senator Ted Cruz (Republican-Texas) think his phone contents are more important than debating the future of voting rights??? Tweeting about Dr. Pepper apparently is. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*Dr. Fauci before Congress over the “allegations” in IT’S FACT CHECK TIME! (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
ELSEWHERE…
*First Arizona, now Virginia. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
