Findings, Expressions and Restrictions - Defining the Reality of Humanity

United States (US) Special Counsel Robert Mueller, charged with looking into the 2016 Presidential Elections, went public this week after more than a year of silence and he explicitly affirmed that his findings did not exonerate President Donald Trump. He found there was interference into the elections.

Mueller also clarified that due to constitutional limitations on criminally indicting a sitting president of the US, his task, therefore, was not to seek any indictment against the Chief Executive.

A Youth Call for Action on the Climate

"This is a task for all humanity. We young people can contribute to a bigger fight, and that can make a big difference. But that only works if our action is understood as a call". 

The sentiments of Swedish school girl and internationally known environmentalist, Greta Thunberg, and 22-year-old German Climate Change activist, Luisa Neubauer, in an open letter in the German publication, Suddeutsche Zeitung, calling for older generations to join the world's youth on September 20, 2019, to strike for the climate.

On Trade and Complications

If the parties to a trade negotiation could reach an equilibrium between 'give and take', then a deal is reached.

However, as simple as the premise might appear, trade negotiations are usually and inevitably very complicated and challenging.

Outside of the published data on tariffs and the varying degrees of percentages , there are the menacing and sensitive suggestions, necessities and demands for changes to a trade party's national laws in order to facilitate a trade deal. Under these conditions, some trade negotiations are busted.

And so it is...

If all the other days of the year could be as rightfully loving and honorable as Mother's Day, then humanity could actually achieve world peace and stability.

But sadly and in reality, the other 300-plus-days of the year are not devoted to the nourishers of the human species, thus in lieu of motherly love and respect; war, conflict, division, agitation, provocation, neglect and erosion of rights will continue.

From a Donald Trump initiated trade war with the People's Republic of China (PRC), to a military build up on the waters of the Gulf states in the Middle East, to changes in Sudan and Algeria, to a reckoning in Libya, to ongoing wars in Yemen and Syria, to the determinations of the Palestinian, Rohingya and other peoples, to a possible Constitutional crisis in the United States (US), to recent attacks upon religious places of worship, to the ever-present threat of terror, to political turmoil in Venezuela, to a plaguing Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo, to a spike of Measles cases in the the US, to Russian agitations, to right wing menacing, to an increasing danger of nuclear proliferation, to neglect of our vital environment and to a litany of many other affairs, tumultuous times are before humanity.

Increased Tariffs and the Eventual Victims - Consumers

United States (US) President Donald Trump has levied increased tariffs on Chinese imports amid ongoing negotiations between the world's two largest economies to find middle ground on trade disagreements. 

At 12:01 a.m. this morning, the US upped tariffs from 10% to 25% on some $200 billion worth of Chinese products. This increase represents a 15% increase over what Trump levied on another $200 billion worth of Chinese imports last year. China in that time also taxed some $110 billion on US imports.

Taking the High Road - Iran's Option to Staying within the Nuclear Deal

In spite and despite of United States (US) President Donald Trump's laments, charges and actions against the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal - the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which brought a greater sense of security to the globe, the Islamic Republic now faces a unique opportunity to demonstrate to the international community that it is rational, diplomatically abled and truly peace-seeking by remaining within the nuclear non-proliferation pact.

That nuclear pact was signed by world leaders - the US, the United Kingdom (UK), France, the European Union (EU), China and Russia, and Iran back in July, 2015 bringing a greater sense of stability to the world after some 40 years of hostilities with Iran.

A Steeper Tilt Toward Instability - Iran to Scale Back Compliance with Nuclear Deal


Of Our Future - Men, Ideology, Alliance, Force, Conflict and all the Ensuing Secondary Effects

On July 14, 2015, at Vienna, Austria, world powers - the permanent five members of the United Nations (UN) - China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom (UK), the European Union (EU), the United States (US) and Iran, signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - the Iran Nuclear Deal, aimed at nuclear non-proliferation.

The Iran Nuclear Deal was inked with global security and stability as its core. The pact was signed over objections from Israel's Netanyahu, who claimed knowledge of some sinister agenda of Iran.

To Weather Current Stresses - Diseases, Bad Harvests, Conflicts, Agitations, etc

As the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that the 1,000-death threshold has been breached in ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), alarming cases of Measles are proving troublesome in the United States (US), bad harvests are setting up a period of gloom in North Korea amid the reality that thousands more children could die in the ongoing conflict in Yemen.

These are but a few of the affairs facing humanity on this third day, of May, 2019; thereby confirming current stresses facing the human species that need to be weathered in order to ensure the continuity of the human species on Planet Earth.

Global Unity, Empathy and Protection of Rights and the Environment

In lieu of any leadership calling for a reset in international affairs and relations that have in the past brought measurable development to humanity, I hereby declare and call for a renewed emphasis on global unity, empathy for all peoples and the protection of all human and civil rights as well as for greater protection of the environment.

Amid research and development into space travel with a sight on the viability of capable life on another orb, humanity should view such undertakings as mere scientific studies capable of providing useful goods, but not as a means to a secondary home.
