China’s “Social Credit”; “Mexico First”; EU’s “Too Strict” Israel Policy

China’s “Social Credit”; “Mexico First”; EU’s “Too Strict” Israel Policy
The Beijing municipal government’s recently unveiled plan to implement China’s controversial “social credit” system is causing quite a stir in the West after being compared to an “Orwellian” plot.

Fresh from a one-week break, this latest program begins by explaining what's behind Reuters' scandalous report alleging that members of the Saudi monarchy are conspiring against Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. Then it transitions to talking about the strategic significance of the joint Russian-Indian "Indra 2018" military drills that are taking place in South Asia. After that, it addresses the reasons why Austria's Foreign Minister lambasted the EU for its supposedly "too strict" policy towards Israel. Once that's done, the next topic that's discussed is "Mexico First" anti-migrant protests taking place in the border town of Tijuana. And finally, our top story of the week is the Beijing municipal government's recently unveiled plan to implement China's controversial "social credit" system by 2020.
