Lots of stuff is flying around the world at the moment. Let's ask The Committee for insight, in addition to the current post below.
I ask about 3 things:
Q: Esteemed Committee, a three-piece question: 1. Will Trump be charged? 2. if so indicted and if yes 3. exonerated?
C: As the situation now stands, Trump will not be charged. What is already being considered by the federal court but cannot be publicly discussed yet, is how the intrusion was timed to occur when Mr. Trump would be travelling. Current and former US presidents face permanent personal threats of assassination, receiving lifetime protection from the US Secret Service because of this. These protectors would under no circumstances allow police to enter the house without prior arrangements and agreements, no matter what court permission the federal police would provide during a surprise, unannounced entry. Sophisticated assassins could easily forge false documents, use faked vehicles and wear proper uniforms as disguises. The problem USA federal prosecutors face is seizure of prohibited personal records, which will cause the court to invalidate all things taken. The federal police believed Trump would have opportunity to move evidence beyond their reach, had they attempted to prior coordinate their visit with the US Secret Service. Their removal of personal records unrelated to their objective will arise as the problem.
Q: Given the several challenges facing the United Kingdom at the moment, is the new Prime Minister going to achieve improvements large enough and soon enough to satisfy the British citizenry?
C: No. Higher fuel prices and price inflation now sweeping across the United Kingdom were caused by decisions both not easily or quickly reversed and also beyond the control of 10 Downing Street. As we have explained many a time on these pages, the ability of governments to manage crises is much more limited than most citizens of such governments consider. The ability of a government to inflict difficulties is much larger than capability to cure. This will become more and more obvious in the UK and in the USA in the coming months and next year, and around the world.
Q: If an invading army can go where it wants when it decides, I consider that a good definition of being conquered. Inside Ukraine, this is the situation for the Russian Army. When are things going to slow down, that military action stops?
C: Russian occupying military forces will remain inside Ukraine permanently; a good portion of the current Ukrainian military force will be taken over by Russia. Military hostility will taper off as Ukranian forces continue to be reduced. Russia does not want to destroy Ukraine; it wants to re-incorporate it into the reborn CCCP now named the Russian Federation.
