JBS CEO Art Thompson's weekly news video update for July 8 - 14, 2013.

In this week's analysis behind the news video, JBS CEO Art Thompson discusses how the online Freedom Index scorecard for Congress based on the Constitution is now available on JBS.org; how, before the government of Mandela took over, clergymen marched in parades in South Africa along with a hammer and sickle flag; how Europeans are being told that Russia is more of a cyber attacker than China; how Snowden has helped divert attention from news that Russia is spying on other nations; how the new FEMA-Russian agreement provides for bringing Russian personnel to the U.S. to help in crowd control and emergency procedures; how some Russians are calling for the release of arms dealer Victor Bout in exchange for Snowden; and how Russia and China are now more openly collaborating.
