It has now become a must statement on Fox News that the sky is falling and CHAOS reigns around the world since Barack Obama became our president. Most scholars of international relations believe the current era of human kind is among the most peaceful in the history of this planet, but Fox News insists that violence is growing due to failure of President Obama to send in the troops in order to reduce violence. I trust you remember when the great President George Bush sent in the troops to end violence in the Middle East. As I recall, in the year 2001 there was not a single war going on in the Middle East. And, the war in Afghanistan was over with Russian troops having left. Oh, there were some dictators, but there was not a single war going on in this region in the year, 2001.
Examine the present:
There is not a major conflict occurring on the continent of Asia. There are some guerrilla forces opposing governments in Thailand and Myanmar, but no other conflict.
The only conflict in Latin America is in Columbia where guerrilla forces are currently engaged in negotiations with the government to end the conflict. Mexico is a basket case of violence, but the fight is between drug lords and the government. But, no other Latin American violence.
There is not a single war in Europe except for the conflict in Ukraine. This conflict involves a few thousand and dozens of people die each month, but this is not a major conflict.
There are conflicts in Nigeria in which a few thousand Boko Haram nut cases rape and murder. Aside from some conflicts over who is the president of a nation, there are no major wars on the African continent except for northern regions like Libya.
So, where is the chaos? Believe it or not the only major conflicts in the world are in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya. None of these conflicts arose during the administration of a Democrat as President.

All signs point to the emergence of a new Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail. Heck, she is spending time in diners talking with folks in her own folksy manner. So, what can we expect from the new Hillary Clinton?
1. She will make economic inequality the center of her campaign.
2. She will blast away at the economic leaders of Wall Street and become the anti-corporate figure in the election.
3. She will be constantly discussing women rights.
4. She will be advocating paid maternity leave for women-and men.
5. She will be fighting for low cost day care.
6. She will come out for one form or another of reducing student loans. Expect some dramatic idea on this issue.
7. She will be arguing for nonpartisan congressional district decisions.
This is the new Hillary Clinton, the woman of the people and for the people!
