ICYMI News Roundup @ EatPrayVote.org: August 4th – August 6th

By Bobby M.

Scanning the news so you don’t have to, so if you missed anything from August 4th – 6th, this recap will catch you up on everything that happened during that period. Not everything will have a hyperlink, so if you would like more information, please highlight and google it.

The big story for this past weekend was the UN Security Council voting unanimously to increases sanctions on North Korea due to their missile testing. When things like this happen, usually China (North Korea’s biggest partner) and/or Russia use their veto power to block things like this. But both countries decided to vote with the rest of the world due to the seriousness of the matter. The other big story for the weekend involved Vice President Mike Pence taking steps towards a 2020 presidential run. Soon after the report, he attacked the news, but given his setting up a SuperPAC, discussions with the Koch brothers, and the investigations into Trump, that attack was just lip service.

The rest of what is listed below may have been harder to hear details about…
