This daily review will present headlines and a short paragraph concerning issues presented in newspapers throughout the world.

Turn Off The Loudspeaker!

World War I began when some young guy shot an important Austrian member of the royal family, and Austria-Hungary and Serbia argued about who should look for the killer. They never could agree so in the end about 20,000,000 people died. For about two weeks the government of South Korea has been blasting away with loudspeakers aimed at North Korean soldiers. We are now faced with an issue that best belongs on the Jon Stewart show about the madness of the world.

Kim Jong-Un announced “our military and people are prepared to risk all-out war,not just to simply respond or to retaliate, but to defend the system our people chose. The situation has reached the verge of war.”

OK,children, time to simmer down. Remove the loudspeakers and end this nonsense. There are NO principles involved.

Let me get this straight, Republicans are furious at Iran which has never invaded another country, but the silence of Republican candidates about North Korea is deafening.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

USA, Newsday: “Woman Hospitalized After Stabbing”

Why not before the stabbing?

Australia, Canberra Times: “I Don’t Think I Lied”

Donald, just open your mouth and you lie!

Egypt, al-ahram: “Fry Eggs On Highway”

Sorry, that activity is restricted to California.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Russia Bans US Wines”

I’ll drink to that one.

UK, Guardian: “Stop Topless Show”

The naked truth in action!

Erdogan-I Demand Power!

For many years President Recep Erdogan was the prime minister of Turkey, and he did a few good things about assisting the economy to become more modern. He did a few good things about checking the power of the military. He did assist Turkey on its march to become a modern society. But,alas, POWER soon became the name of his game. He wants POWER and he wants to crush any and all factors in Turkey that prevent him from having POWER. Just last year he was working to have Kurds become an integral part of Turkish society. But, alas, his desire for POWER led to an election that resulted in his political party losing its majority. So, what has he done since that event?

He launched attacks on Kurdish military units fighting in Syria and Iraq against ISIS. Beating ISIS will not gain him any votes, so the hell with that game. However, there are Turks who do not like the Kurds-a minority in Turkey–so fight them and call a quick election in hope of gaining COMPLETE POWER!

Too bad Erdogan is not head of North Korea -now that is one country in which the ruler does have COMPLETE POWER!

Kim Jong Un-ADVANCE!

Kim Jong-un is very upset. Perhaps, he gazed in the mirror and saw his haircut, one must say that when it comes to having an interesting haircut, the pudgy guy from North Korea is among the most powerful leaders in the world. After all, when one inhabits a world in which your kick of the day is having an uncle or a general or whoever shot is the highlight of power, there must be moments when the little guy wants to strut the world stage as someone important. So, he issued an order>

“The supreme commander(that’s me)of the Korean People’s Army will enter a wartime state to be fully ready to launch surprise actions.” Now, let me get this right, you want to “launch surprise actions” so you inform the world that you want to launch surprise actions! Perhaps, it is time to spend the day maneuvering your toy soldiers.

Scott, Poor Man’s Donald

There is something rather pathetic about Scott Walker. After his great triumph saying terrorist teachers, firemen and cops in Wisconsin, the boy who never completed college felt that he could take on the world and win. During the famous debate, he came across as a little boy who somehow wandered into this place with all sorts of guys ranting and yelling. Two months ago, Scott was for some form allowing illegal immigrants to become legal. Now, he wants to end the 14th Amendment which states anyone born in America is a citizen. After all, Donald said that and it Donald says anything, Scott will follow along.

One wonders if Scott is aiming to be the Vice President candidate with the Donald man. I assume if a paper blew in through his window and it had the name of Donald Trump on it, he would sign the proposed bill without a glance.

Hillary Debates Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter groups, or should I say, two or three individuals, have confronted Hillary Clinton demanding that she do—-? The problem with Black Lives Matter is beyond insisting that Black Lives Matter and seeking to discuss the topic, it is not quite clear exactly how anyone could address issues pertaining to black lives other than talking about the subject. Any survey of the media, print, online, TV reveals endless DISCUSSIONS about the issue of Black Lives.

Hillary was right on target. If anyone is interested in the improvement of Black Lives,then they should focus upon:

1. JOBS, JOBS, JOBS, GOOD PAYING JOBS.

2. Diversify police forces.

3. Establish new guidelines for police when halting people.

4. Make college free for ALL students.

5. Rebuild our cities and include affordable housing.

These steps would not only save black lives, but lead to healthy and prosperousness.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

The more I listen to the 17 voices, the more I want to listen to Mitt Romney.

Scott Walker would kiss the butt of Sheldon Adelson for a buck.

What ever happened to Rand Paul?

It is simply a matter of time before Sarah Palin enters this race.

There is no doubt among Republicans the drought was caused by Barack Obama.

How about asking Bibi Netanyahu to run for US President?

Donald will never stop being Donald. Republican nightmare?

Great Ideas

Someone decided to spoof our beloved Donald Trump by claiming he wants to relocate Palestinians to Puerto Rico. How about:

1. Any woman in America who is not satisfied with laws ending abortion will be relocated to Saudi Arabia.

2. Don’t like our wonderful gun laws,you are on the next boat to Syria.

3. Black Lives Matter,OK, you are on your way to Nigeria and hang around with Boko Haram.

4. Upset with $7.25 an hour, I have a good job for you in Bangladesh.

5. Upset with our wonderful wealthy folk,how about meeting some Greek capitalists, they never pay any tax?

6. You illegals want to come to America, how about Puerto Rico?

Donald, that idea was no joke, send them to Puerto Rico and win all the money from Sheldon Adelson!

Mike Huckabee In Israel

There is one propensity that Republican candidates for president share, just give them some time to speak about any issue in the world,and their basic ignorance will emerge. Mike Huckabee decided to visit Israel, most probably courtesy of Sheldon Adelson. Just remember if you desire money from the rich Jew in Las Vegas, head for Israel and kiss the butt of Bibi Netanyahu. Mike made the mistake of allowing Israel reporters to pose questions.

1, He denounced the “Soviet Union” until someone persuaded him the name of that country was–Russia.

2. He insisted to Israelis that Israel bordered on a nation that was a sworn enemy of Israel– sorry, Mike. Jordan and Israel have lived in peace for over twenty years.

3. Naturally, one must blame Barack Obama for all evil in the world. “It is insulting to me that our government has put pressure on the Israel government to stop building bedrooms in their neighborhoods than on Iran.”

Mike,the West Bank was assigned to Palestinians by the United Nations. The following US presidents supported that decision:

Republican Dwight Eisenhower.

Republican Richard Nixon.

Republican Saint Ronald Reagan

Republican George H.W. Bush

Republican George Bush

Russian Views On Putin

A Russian polling group surveyed Russians in order to uncover their attitudes toward their President, macho man Vladimir. According to results obtained by the Lavada Center:

1. 56% insist that President Putin has not been able to obtain an accurate picture of the reality of life in Russia.

2. 19% insist that his advisors lie to him and that explains some of his actions.

3. 31% believe their leader knows exactly what is happening and he directs these actions.

4. 31% believe that his actions violate human rights, but they regard a good standard of living before human rights.

5. 38% do not believe it is possible in Putin Russia to openly and freely speak one’s mind.
