The United Nations voted against a peace resolution between Israel and Gaza on Monday night. You read that right – a vote for peace failed.
Who would vote against peace? These countries: France, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. These six countries abstained from voting: Albania, Brazil, Ecuador, Ghana, Malta, and Switzerland. These four countries voted in favor of peace: China, Gabon, Mozambique, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates.
Why would anyone vote against a peaceful resolution? It is a shoot-the-messenger scenario. The resolution was drafted by Russia and supported by China so Western countries oppose it.
The representative from the U.S. said that the U.S. opposed the vote because it failed to condemn Hamas. They voted against negotiating peace because they don’t like the wording against the bad guys.
Children are dying. Innocent children are dying and the wording is what you’re worried about?
The United States is expected to announce a deal with Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro later today. The deal would ease sanctions on Venezuela and allow the U.S. to authenticate the 2024 election in Venezuela.
That all sounds nice but President Maduro is still under indictment by the U.S. Justice Department for drug trafficking. The State Department still offers up a $15 million reward for his arrest. How can he be wanted in the U.S. and a partner to the U.S. at the same time?
After years of declaring that Maduro is a corrupt dictator, why would the U.S. want to mend fences with Venezuela right now? The answer most likely has to do with oil. Venezuela is an OPEC member and has 17.5% of the world’s oil reserves, according to BP.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is amongst many leaders in China today for the Belt and Road Initiative meeting. Other participating world leaders include Chilean President Gabriel Boric, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, and several other Asian, African and Mideast leaders.
The Belt and Road Initiative is China’s program to invest in infrastructure around the world, boosting trade and growth with other nations. Western countries have criticized this program, saying it encourages struggling economies to take on debt.
In response to the idea that African nations don’t understand the debt that they are taking on, Zambian politician Akende M'membe Chundama recently said that this is “laughable.” She called that notion “Western propaganda."

Pfizer says that profit for 2023 will be down due to low demand for the Covid vaccine.
“We are in the middle of the Covid fatigue. Nobody wants to speak about Covid,” Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said during a recent earnings call. “We have the big anti-vaccination rhetoric.”
Pfizer estimates an annual profit for 2023 of somewhere between $58-61 billion. Previous forecasts were between $67-70 billion. A Pfizer report says that this drop is “solely due to its Covid products” such as the new vaccine and Pfizer’s antiviral drug. The CDC estimates that only 2% of Americans have received the most recent Covid booster shot.
While $70 billion does not seem all that bad for a profit report, consider that Pfizer made over $100 billion last year from Covid products. Because of this drop, Pfizer says that it will have to resort to cost-cutting measures which includes layoffs starting next year.
