U.S VP: ‘If we don’t stand up for our democracy, I mean, what do we have left worth fighting for?’



Just days into her new role of advancing voter protections, Vice President Kamala Harris has advocated to her fellow American’s fundamental election rights.

It comes off the back of President Joe Biden announcing last week that he asked Harris to lead these efforts, over his administration’s concerns that voter rights are under assault.

Harris’s new role involves overseeing the progress of the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” and the “For the People Act”, both of which may not pass despite Democratic majorities.

“These laws that are being passed are so transparently going to have the effect of impeding, suppressing and making it more difficult for people to vote,” Harris said during a news conference in Mexico City.

The bills follow Biden’s urgent efforts to reverse increasingly restrictive voting laws in Republican-controlled states.

Harris believes the right to vote is the cornerstone of who Americans say they are.

Harris says she will visit U.S/Mexico border

During her first international trip, Harris addressed U.S. President Joe Biden’s goals to curb migration at the southern border, naming the most pressing causes of migration from the Central America.

Mike Shanley, CEO, Aid Connect Data breaks down Harris Administration policy to address the migration issue at the US/Mexico border.

Harris, currently on the second half of her international tour of Guatemala and Mexico, recently told migrants “not to come to U.S”

This was said at a press conference with Guatemala’s president, Alejandro Giammattei, the former California senator spoke about investigating corruption and human trafficking in Central America.

“It’s an interesting statement because it definitely pushed the administration a bit more towards the centre. I know with with the administration came in on the right, there was some concerns that the policies would be too far left,” Shanley says.

“With comments like that, it definitely looks like they’re looking to move the policy more towards the centre, especially we’re past the 100 days mark.”

“In the US. We’ve already started the talks of the next election cycle for 2022. So, you know, comments like that. One consideration is always the next election cycle, and it’ll be the midterms, but how that’s going to affect congressional races and obviously, they would like the democrats to maintain a majority in both houses,” Mike concluded.

Will the foreign aid go directly to the Central American governments?

What role does the US hope Mexico will play?

Putin threatens West with nuclear strike



Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a direct threat to employ nuclear weapons against the West, accusing NATO and the United States of preparing to strike Russia.

Putin delivered this ominous warning during his annual address to the nation, raising global tensions to unprecedented levels.

During his speech, Putin accused NATO and the US of deceptive maneuvers, alleging their intentions to launch an attack on Russian territory.

He emphasised Russia’s readiness to defend itself, boasting of its modernized nuclear arsenal and asserting the capability to defeat any potential aggressors on their own soil.

The Russian leader’s words carried a chilling reminder of the destructive power at his disposal, stating, “They have to understand that we also have weapons, weapons that can defeat them on their own territory.”

Such rhetoric underscores the grave risk of escalating conflict and the potential catastrophic consequences of nuclear warfare.

Nuclear war

Putin warned that the deployment of troops to Ukraine by NATO countries could lead to a real risk of nuclear war.

He emphasised Russia’s determination to strengthen its military presence in response to perceived threats from neighboring nations aligning with Western alliances.

In addition to military concerns, Putin criticized Western efforts to engage Russia in an arms race, vowing to bolster Russia’s defense capabilities while accusing the West of attempting to weaken the country economically and politically.

Despite escalating tensions and global condemnation of Russia’s actions in Ukraine, Putin sought to rally support domestically, praising Russian unity and resilience in the face of adversity.

He portrayed Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine as a defensive measure to safeguard national interests and protect Russian citizens.

Putin’s aggressive stance towards the West underscores the deepening rift between Russia and Western powers, raising fears of a potential conflict with far-reaching consequences.

FAA gives Boeing 30 days to fix 737 MAX program



The Federal Aviation Administration has issued Boeing a 90-day deadline to devise a comprehensive plan for enhancing quality control procedures after a recent incident involving a 737 Max aircraft.

Less than two months following an alarming occurrence where a door plug blew out of a 737 Max aircraft just nine minutes into an Alaska Airlines flight, the FAA has demanded Boeing to present a thorough strategy to address quality control deficiencies.

The incident, which took place on Flight 1282, revealed that essential bolts required to secure an unused door panel on the nearly new aircraft were missing, according to a preliminary investigation conducted earlier this month.

The door plug had been removed and reinstalled at Boeing’s Renton, Washington, factory where the 737 Max is manufactured.

This incident adds to a string of production issues plaguing Boeing’s flagship aircraft.

Action plan

In response to the FAA’s directive, Boeing affirmed its commitment to developing a comprehensive action plan with measurable benchmarks.

The aerospace giant assured that its leadership is fully dedicated to meeting this challenge head-on.

FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker emphasized the need for Boeing to implement substantial and enduring improvements, emphasizing that foundational changes will necessitate ongoing commitment from the company’s leadership.

The FAA intends to hold Boeing accountable at every stage of the process, ensuring that mutually agreed milestones and expectations are met.
