President Biden: How Much Is He Aware and In Control?
Many think Joe Biden should not be President at 79. Judging from his blunders they may have a point. For example, Joe Biden when commemorating the U S S Delaware on Saturday thought Michelle Obama had been the Vice President. Mr. Biden forgot that he had been Vice President when Barack Obama was in the White House. Mr. Biden was Vice President between 2009 and 2017.

Could Vlad Be Removed From Power?
Vladimir Putin has been in power for 20 years. His political party, the 'United Russia Party', is accused of rigging the vote at general elections. This results in Mr Putin staying in power. Any opposition parties are sidelined and cannot get the opportunity to broadcast alternative policies. Putin's opponents usually end up silenced, exiled, or in prison. Look at Putin's most vociferous opponent, Alexi Navalny, doing time on trumped-up charges.
Tory Golden Boy: Rishi Sunak.
Rishi Sunak told Sky News that people should judge him on what he did during the pandemic. This was a happy time for UK Chancellor, Rishi Sunak. Millions faced lockdown due to the COVID virus and were afraid of losing their jobs. Mr Sunak, provided the furlough scheme, which paid employees 80%, of their wages. This scheme saved thousands of jobs in the UK, in all sectors. Loans and grants were provided for businesses. Sunak brought out the 'eat out, to help out' scheme.

The BBC showed him as a cartoon figure dressed as Superman throwing money at the poor.
Russia Asks China For Help.
Russia is accused by the Joe Biden administration of asking China for military assistance in Ukraine. If this is the truth, it may show Russia is struggling to meet its military objectives.

After two weeks of entering Ukraine, it is only now, that Russia has made significant military progress.
