President Trump ordered the military to kill Maj. and Gen. They got stuck on the way to Baghdad International airport. This act created an upset in Iran. There have been many protests throughout the country of Iran. The country's supreme leader made three days of mourning in his honor. This attack might create a lot of conflict between Iran and America.

Iran shoots missiles at a U.S. military base in revenge for killing Maj. Gen. No Americans were harmed but the supreme leader of Iran called it a “slap in the face” for the Americans. The attacks happened after Iranian leaders promised “revenge” on America. The U.S. forces most likely had noticed from Iran before the attacks. Mahdi, the prime minister of Iran said, “The strike would be limited to locations of the U.S. military in Iraq.” Iran and America hopefully will not have to face a war.

Wildfires are common in Australia, but this year they are much bigger and are spreading quicker. The fires have spread over 15 million acres across Australia. Wildfires usually last until March, but this year it seems like it will last a lot longer.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided to step down as part of the Royale Family

After a lot of thinking, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided to become financially independent. “My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.” responded the Queen of England.  Prince Harry and Meghan don’t want to rely on public funds but work like normal people. Prince Harry and Meghan are going to split their time between Canada and the UK. The Royal Family still has some issues to resolve on this matter. If you were Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would you make the same decision?

The 7th democratic debate

The 7th Democratic debate just happened with an even smaller crowd. Previously Cory Booker had left the stage, being the last African American still running for president. Here’s a round-up of the 7th debate:

Elizebeth Warren said that in 2018, Bernie Sanders told her that a woman could not be president

Bernie denies that he said that

All candidates talk about how big should public health care be, and should they ban private insurers? 

What should they do about Iran?

Like always, the debate changes the public eye’s view on them. The most recent poll after the debate showed that Bernie Sanders is tied with previous vice president Joe Biden. Who do you want to be President(If not Trump)?

 

 

Possible Space Crime

 

Ann McClain, an astronaut aboard the International Space Station could have committed the first crime done in outer space. She is said to have looked at her wife, whom she no longer lives with, a bank account. If found guilty, Ann McClain will be the first person to commit a crime in space. The suspicion began, when Summer Worden, Ann McClain's wife knew intimate details about her spending. Summer Wordan asked the bank about the whereabouts of computers that had accessed her bank account and the bank answered the International Space Station. Ann Mclain said that she was just keeping the family's finances in order, like she always does. Now there will be many investigations to find out what really happened. Who do you think is guilty?

 

MLK Weekend

Martin Luther King Weekend is a holiday that happens every year. Martin Luther King was a civil rights activist who is known around the country for creating equality for African Americans. He led marches and boycotts in Alabama for racial equality. Every year, on Martin Luther King Day, people throughout the country do community service. This year was no exception. People all over the country did services such as feeding the poor, rebuilding wrecked neighborhoods, and even walking dogs from the animal shelter. Many families and individuals also donate close and other things that might be needed throughout the country. What services can you provide to your community?

 

 

 

What will Happen Next in Trump’s Impeachment

 

President Donald J. Trump was the third president in history to be impeached. Impeachment is when the president could have broken the law, so the House of Representatives votes on if he acted unconstitutionally. The House of Representatives is made up of people from each of the 50 states and gets more representatives if the population of the state is bigger. The state with the most representatives is California, with a stunning 53 representatives. If the House of Representatives votes to impeach the president, he/she is still in office, but will go to trial with the Senate. When the trial comes, there will be opening arguments from both sides stating their beliefs. Eventually, after days of trial, there will be a vote to see if President Trump will be impeached. 

The Carnivorous Virus

 

The Carnivorous Virus is a Virus that is fast-spreading with a death count of over 106 people. Only 4,500 people have been infected with this virus so far, but it is very contagious and is infecting people around the globe. Scientists think that the virus started in a fish market in Wuhan, China. Lots of people and live animals in closed quarters at the market could have easily infected humans with the disease. The problem now is preventing the disease from spreading. With the Vaccine for the disease being at least one year away, doctors suggest washing your hands often to prevent the disease from infecting you. Let's hope this disease gets quenched before it comes to the USA.

What’s Next of Donald Trump’s Impeachment?

 

The Senate is finally holding Impeachment trials for Donald J. Trump. If the 2/3's of the Senate decide that his actions were unconstitutional, he will discontinue his role as the President of the United States of America. The Senate has very strict rules prohibiting bathroom breaks over long periods. Some Senators have even gotten bored enough to start doing world puzzles or something else!!! The Senate is still unsure if any or which witnesses will testify, but there is speculation that John Bolton(National Security Advisor for Donald Trump) might testify. Trump said that he would lie because he's trying to gain attention for the new and upcoming book. Not much has happened in the Senate Impeachment, but Trump's lawyers are trying to put him above accusations, and get him out of the impeachment.

Kobe Bryant’s Death

 

On January 26, 2020, Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, along with 7 others died in a helicopter crash. Kobe Bryant inspired the children around the world. Having such an icon die was a big event in the week. Bryant and his daughter were headed to Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California, for a youth basketball event. The pilot was flying at a very low altitude and soon crashed into a hill. The actual cause for the crash is still unknown because there was no Blackbox in the helicopter.

State of the Union

 

The State of the Union is a yearly address given by the president of the United States of America. This year president Donald Trump gave the State of the Union on February 4, 2020. President Trump stated that the unemployment rate is at the lowest it has ever been, and that the stock market is doing very well. Our president also took improper credit when he said that the U.S was the highest oil and natural gas producer in the world. Trump said that China was taking away American jobs. He pointed out how he had successfully killed two Iranian leaders, but many think that it wasn’t worth it for him to do that. This year America was given the State of the Union by our president, Donald Trump.

Iowa Caucus

Pete Buttigieg won the Iowa caucus. The Iowa Caucus was an event that helped determine who would be the Democrat in the upcoming election. A lot of Democrats just want someone who can beat Trump in the 2020 elections. Pete Buttigieg won and Berney Sanders was second. Berny Sanders is an American Soicialist, that means he wants the government to be incharge of this country as a whole. Pete Buttigieg is mayor of South Bend Indiana, and is what former president Barack Obama calls “The future of the Democratic party”. Many think Pete Buttigieg has a good chance of winning the 2020 elections.

Trump will not be removed from office

President Trump was recently impeached for abuse of power and betraying his oath as president. The trial lasted several days  but Trump was found innocent so he was not removed from office. All republicans expect to vote for Trump to stay in office. Mitt Romney was the only republican who voted for Trump to be removed from office. He later said that “I was among the senators who determined that what the president did was wrong, grievously wrong". Many democrats wished that Trump had been removed from office but, sadly for them, he wasn’t. Do you think Trump was guilty?
