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

Things Not To Say About Israel

There are certain things that must never be expressed when discussing the nation of Israel. OH,it is OK to express joy and support for its government, but dare to mention any mistake leads to but one conclusion– the comment must and will be classified as an example of ANTI-SEMITISM! A UN report on last year’s Israel invasion of Gaza has sent Israel, and its supporters of the Israel government in America,into a fury of anger. The UN report simply noted that during that invasion, 2,256 humans died.It argued that figure included 1,563 civilians. Naturally, this figure must be wrong, for how could innocent civilians be killed during a war?

Netanyahu supporters in America, they are NOT Israel supporters, rush to the defense of Bibi. They argue that Israel is always cited by the UN Human Rights Council for killing the innocent, while other nations that murder are not. This is correct. There is no doubt that Israel is being singled out. BUT, there is another truth–the Israel Defense Force DID kill civilians. Face up to that fact and demonstrate to Sudan or Zimbabwe, Myanmar, or other nations that kill, at least one nation is ready to confront its errors.

Putin Don’t Like Foreign “Agents”

Vladimir Putin was raised in the good old Soviet Union and he fondly remembers when the government send millions to gulags and other such places for daring to utter a single word of disapproval for what the government does or is. If one is not a 100% true blooded Russian who, not only loves his nation, but loves those who run the nation, then times are getting bad. He has a desire, no a need, to be in charge and any indication there are “rats” around who dare to squeak their ideas means that something must be done to restore quiet.

The Dynasty Foundation in Russia is engaged in activities such as fostering scientific research or aiding those in economic need. It has no political agenda, but it is not run by the government.So, Putin has decided to clarify this harmless agency as a “foreign agent.” After all, aiding Russian schools or institutions to further scientific research is a danger to the very existence of the Russian state. To sum up, it is now clear this Foundation is out of business and will close its doors. Watch out for “scientific research” because who knows what such a process will uncover!

Refugees Continue Walking And Sailing

There are those who continually complain about the massive numbers of refugees who are seeking new homes in more economically advanced nations. People like Dylann Roof believe that the United States of America is being overwhelmed by the hordes of people heading for our shores. Europe believe their very existence is threatened by African or Muslim “invaders” seeking to “take over their nations.” A brief examination of history makes clear this is not the first such “invasion,” and those of the past were much more severe.

1. Thousands of years ago Neanderthals were invaded by Cro-Magnons who soon took over their lands and sent them into extinction.

2. Invaders from England and other European nations not only invaded the New World, but wiped out untold millions in the process.

3. MY parents were among the horde of dirty, poor, desperate invaders who came to America seeking a new life. Between 1890-1925 about TWENTY FIVE MILLION IMMIGRANTS FROM EUROPE arrived in America. Just about everything being said concerning Africans or Muslims was said about this group.

Newcomers have been wandering from one place to another for about 50,000 years, Calm down, one day the newcomers will be the oldcomers and saying the same things about the newcomers!

Dylan Roof Is Us

Imagine being a young boy raised in some Southern state who can walk by a Confederate flag and hear people praise the good old days when “darkies knew their place?” Imagine watching Fox News rant and rave about “criminal blacks” who refuse to behave like good white people? Imagine being raised in a nation which refuses to enforce basic controls over use of guns? Dylann Roof was raised in a land of hate and verbal violence by those in the Republican Party whose ongoing non-stop refrain is that a man from Africa heads our nation and “he hates America?” Dylann was raised with hate spewing from the mouths of Fox News pundits,and he was raised in a state that refuses to control the use of guns of terrorism.

I hate to put it so blunt but Dylann was simply an ordinary American who was taught that guns are OK and that blacks are not. He was TAUGHT TO HATE. So, what is the surprise when he turned out to be an A student in hate. He had excellent teachers including a few dozen men seeking to become president of this nation. He is just an ordinary God-fearing American young man.

Who Is Enemy In Middle East?

It is now a common idea that there are Muslim fanatics who have taken over the religion and transformed it into an excuse for terrorism and destruction. But, American leaders rarely discuss the founder of such ideas for the simple reason Muslim terrorism was born in the land of our great ally-Saudi Arabia. Madrassa schools which educate young Muslim boys to hate the West have been funded for decades by Saudi Arabia. If one seeks a Muslim nation to emulate what better one than Saudi Arabia which denies women basic human rights or beheads and lashes those who disagree with the leaders of the nation. Saudi Arabia is the model for Muslim terrorism. They have funded terror groups such as al-Qaeda and many of those in ISIS did receive funding from Saudi sources.

At present,Saudi Arabia funds:
1. Egyptian generals who deny democracy to their people.
2. Rulers in Gulf states who deny democracy.
3. Terror groups in Syria and Iraq receive funding from Saudi sources.
4. Saudi planes are bombing Yemen and causing thousands to turn to the Houthis.

So, the number one enemy of the US in the Middle East is -SAUDI ARABIA

Trans Pacific Partnership

After living 84 years there area few things that one has learned. Among them is the continual human movement towards international trade. Reality is that one decade jobs from America headed to Europe, the next decade they headed to China and then Vietnam and then Bangladesh. The new Trans Pacific Trade(TPP) has aroused anger among Democratic congressmen who insist they must protect “jobs” here in America from the low cost ones that are present in Asia.I continually hear comments about “protecting good solid blue collar jobs right here in the good old USA.” Reality, those jobs face greater threat from technology than they do from places in Asia. Within fifty years they will all be handled by some wonderful thinking robots. So, what are the alternatives:

1. Create new no-cost training centers to provide technology jobs for those who currently are in factories.

2. Redistribute the wealth and guarantee each American a guaranteed income.

3. Vastly raise the number of jobs in human relations such as education or social welfare.

4. Invent new jobs that could not be handled by robots.

Sound bizarre, but this is modern reality.

Geert Gets Going Hatefully

Geert Wilders has been around for over a decade in the Netherlands with his fight to preserve the purity of his nation from the influx of those Muslims. His approach is to draw pictures of Muhammad or to use cartoons in order to arouse hate and anger from Muslims.For one reason or another Muslim leaders play into his hate drama. Geert now has turned to the idea of freedom of speech as the center of his desire to get Muslim leaders going bonkers about some silly cartoon.

Muslim leaders have yet to grasp that Geert is the Ted Cruz of Holland. Pay attention to his hate and he loses making the 6:00 o’clock news. There are times to ignore those whose desire is arousing the hate that may lurk in human hearts. Let him draw and draw and eventually he will not draw any attention.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I am sick to my heart at the shooting in Charleston.

But, the commentary by Fox News people is even sicker than the shooter.

South Carolina displays Confederate flags on public buildings. Honor traitors!

I wonder if there is an antidote to the sickness that pervades many in the South?

Where did this love of guns begin? With the assassination of John KennedY?

In my New York City youth we had the Sullivan Act which regulated gun use.

In my New York City slum youth anyone with a gun was termed, CRAZY!

RACISM IN AMERICA

I tuned in to Fox News in order to learn about their handling of the horrific news from Charleston, South Carolina where a 21 year old man entered a Black church and murdered nine people. As he blasted away, Dylan Roof shouted,”you rape our women, you’re taking over our country. You have to go.” So, he shot six black women and there black men. I was informed by Fox News commentators that we should not get into any talk about–RACISM- since this young man was engaged in a war against Christians. Race had nothing to do with the shootings.

Let me get this straight, Dylan Roof drove past a few dozen white churches and halted at the famous BLACK African Methodist Episcopalian Church because he hated Christians. According to Fox News, this shooting is simply part of the war against Christianity which we all know was begun by the Muslim in the White House. How do these people on Fox News sleep at night? What exactly do they tell their children? Yes, Dylan Roof is sick, but his sickness is not as serious as the one suffered by those on Fox News.

Climate Change Wars!

Before getting into this story I must confess that I am not a scientist and therefore obtain my science news from blond haired women onFox News. They may not be scientists,but they can read the cards that are displayed to assist the ignorant to pretend to know something about everything. Joseph Kurtz, Archbishop of Louisville, announced that Catholics have a responsibility to help save this planet, the one that Jesus came to bring peace and love to. He hailed the encyclical issued by the notorious LIBERAL, Pope Francis, which made clear what over 95% of real scientists have been saying–humans are altering the climate on this planet.

“It’s our marching orders for advocacy. It really brings a new urgency to us.”He was joined by Reverend Canon Sally who said: “I really think it will change enough minds to get the critical mass we need to get our house in order and cut greenhouse emissions.” Of course, the real scientists in the Republican party know that climate always changes. So, why the rush? It rains one day and the sun shines the next. They understand about this topic, after all, they listen to the scientists on Fox News!
