This issue’s leading topics are: “THE RUSSIA THING” (26X) Donald Trump Jr.’s “I Love It” to Russians; US POLITICS (22X) Voter Data Files, Trumpcare Bill, Article of Impeachment, Failing GOP Government; US COPS & GUNS (21X) America’s Police Violence, More Guns & Shootings, Women’s March vs. NRA; MIDDLE EAST (17X) Qatar Siege, ISIS Out of Mosul, “March for Justice” in Turkey; TRUMP (16X) “Morning Joe”, Twitter Harassment, “Donald Trump Is Not Well”; WESTERN EUROPE (16X) G20 Summit & Riots, Simon Veil, Brexit Drags On; ISRAEL/PALESTINE (14X) American Backing Dropping, UNESCO’s “Occupying Power”, BDS, More Colonies; ASIA (13X) North Korea, China, India & USA; US EXTREMISM (12X) Armed KKK March, Blackwater as Foreign Policy; ENVIRONMENT (9X) G20 Summit Statement Without USA, Jerry Brown California Summit; US SPOOKS (8X) Hearings for Trump’s FBI Pick; TECH (5X) Hate Speech & Terrorism on Social Media; LATIN AMERICA (4X) Venezuela, Mexico, El Salvador; ECONOMICS (2X) EU & Japan In, USA Out; and AFRICA (1X) Niger & Boko Haram.

We have mentioned several times in the “ISP” that the two dominant media topics had been interchangeably “US Politics” and “US Extremism”, with other world topics coming far behind. More recently, we stated that with the increasingly obvious incapacity and incompetence of Trump, politics had seemed to have become more important, with “US Politics” and “US Cops & Guns” leading other topics in our previous issue. But now “The Russia Thing” has surged to the top, very probably due to continued US Intelligence Community leaks to the press intended to weaken and cripple Trump and his sidekicks, and could eventually lead to Trump’s impeachment. However, several specialists seem to think Trump will not be impeached because that would put Vice President Mike Pence and his far more structured hard rightwing political agenda in power. So Trump may well continue to limp on to the end of his term.
