A lot of people are freaking out about Donald Trump being in the White House. Good, they should be. However, as we watch the limits of democracy tested almost daily by the mix of corruption, demagoguery, and corruption we see coming from the administration, we’ve started to forget exactly how bad things were just a little over a decade ago.

We have seen a significant amount of stories related to Venezuela and its current state of affairs in the news lately. The country is in turmoil due to corruption, poor economy, violence and a lack of resources. The citizens of Venezuela are without food, electricity, and medicine with the situation not seeming to clear up anytime soon. The media is flooded with heart-wrenching stories regarding Venezuelan politics and downturn; but it is also important to acknowledge other aspects of Venezuela, the good, the bad and the ugly.

We hear plenty on the news about Illegal Immigration in the United States. It’s often referenced in comedy sketches, TV shows and Trump just doesn’t like to shut up about it (“I will build a great wall.”). Something we don’t hear as often is Illegal Immigration in Canada. This has become an increasing issue in the province of Quebec since Donald Trump took office in the United States and it could get worse.

President Donald Trump is looking to give Congress a window to resolve DACA’s shutdown before recipients lose their status on March 5, 2018. The administration formally announced the end of DACA on September 5, 2017. This leaves Congress with roughly six months to work on a solution.

Pakistan’s role in the war on terror, which had been recognised by the world until the last US government, has suddenly turned into a question mark in President Trump’s era. The power shift in the United States has certainly brought a policy shift in Afghanistan in general and towards Pakistan in particular.

It is said that politics is always complicated. However, they can take a switch from heated debates to strange hands of fate.

Terrorism was a word that was rarely used before the mid-1980s, yet it has now become synonymous with everyday life. What defines terrorism, however, is still incredibly murky as there is no textbook definition of the term.
Three weeks can go by in what feels like a moment. Three weeks can make a huge difference. That is what I presume the German parties tell themselves looking at their schedule leading up to the German Federal Election taking place 24th September.
