Notations From the Grid (M-End Edition): #RandomThoughts On the Month That Was

As we went to press with this month-end edition of Notations from the Grid, The Congress has begun deliberations on the Border Wall as there is a definite possibility of President Trump declaring a National Emergency. Although the US Government is now fully operational, challenges remain.

The heads of the Intelligence Community were before Congress and contradicted assertions by President Trump--It prompted a Tweet by President Trump.   As we also went to Press, Britain, France and Germany created a payment mechanism to by-Pass Swift to continue trade with Iran in spite of US Objections.     We are also assessing the latest out of India as Elections loom there.   Unemployment is a major challenge for India right now.

Returning home here in the United States, We have also been assessing the on-going situation in Venezuela as we also are witness to 2020 Candidates including Kamala Harris from our home State of California have begun their quest.    We have also just reviewed the latest out of Afghanistan in light of the new report on the true realities of Afghanistan:  a resurgent Taliban as some 45,000 Afghan Soldiers have lost their lives over the past 4 years.
