No matter what, goes the apparent unwritten media standard,Trump must be blamed right off the bat for anything that goes wrong -- and so he was when he didn't use the politically correct language during the aftermath of the Charlottesville, Virginia riot. They wanted names, names, names publicized: Neo-Nazis, the KKK, white supremacists and their ilk. Why, oh why, didn't Trump mention each individually, shouted the morons?
However, peculiar, yes? Nobody in journo land begged Obama to single out and publicly condemn specific radical black groups when chaos broke out in Ferguson, MS or Baltimore, MD.
I knew all I needed to know over the weekend when I saw a report by ABC via the Stephanopoulos show in which a photo of the 20-year-old alleged murderer was thrown up on the screen, with words in large letters underneath his name reading REGISTERED REPUBLICAN. I wish I could remember the last time ABC similarly accommodated a criminal Democrat suspect, but I doubt there is such precedent.
Speaking of Ohio's "superior" white auto driver, said to have a history of mental problems (getting to be normal status in this country), we also note that he would seem to have been in elementary school when Obama came into Office, so the entirety of his school years from that point were filled with Obama's educational bull crap and racial favoritism (that's called racism by those who use the proper term). As time goes on, we're sure to find a lot of screwed up adults who came to be that way as children growing up under Obama's ways. Of course, all blame will fall upon Trump, whom the left, some on the right and their willing shadow buddies can't wait to toss out of Washington for their own reasons (not yours).
While we understand why some would wish to topple the statue of Robert E. Lee and other controversial figures, we also offer a warning: Sometime in the future, perhaps in the distant future, preserving such reminders might be the only defense one has against others who wish to tarnish and insist for their own ends that certain episodes or artifacts of history were in error or never existed at all. When we hide or destroy history's remnants, we may easily ring in our own demise simultaneously.
Which leads us to the mayor of some Kentucky town, who thought the best response to all of this is to remove two Confederate (?) statues in his own town. Yeah mayor, that'll show 'em.
Watching Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe speak against violent whities, sounding something akin to the politically correct valedictorian at a junior college graduation, left me uninspired, as did NY's governor Andrew Cuomo, who needlessly warned there was no room for white supremacists in the country -- a statement reminiscent of one he uttered some time back when advising that there was no place for politically conservative people in NY. In Cuomo's world, there's no room for anybody but those who think like he -- and this man may have presidential intentions, so may his words return to haunt him.
Meanwhile, as radical groups of all sorts fret and fight in the streets over relics of the distant past, few pay attention to the sidelines, where members of a particular group of people plot and plan to one day take over the U.S. government using the steady and sure weapon called multiple childbirth. Yes, deep within the United States are haters living in their own special communities who hate our freedoms and Constitution more than any other faction, and they both raise and educate their young as, not simply race haters, but as America haters. And don't think they aren't appreciative of street riots, for such chaos participants are assisting the unseen more than "our" garden-variety hate groups could imagine.
Who knows, the day may come when you beg the universe to send that damned asteroid.

Breaking News: American diplomat staff working in Cuba apparently suffered hearing loss due to what is thought to be sound wave interference. I'm always amazed at uses found for sound in science, technology. . .and war. We had our own ideas back in 1971, when we wondered if ultrasonics had any bearing on injuries allegedly caused during UFO encounters: http://robert-barrow.blogspot.com/2007/10/apro-publishes-ufo-ultrasound-article.html
Harkening back to that old song, "Abraham, Martin and John," we find it all replaced with a new tune -- we could call it "Che', Mao and Kim." The peaceful intentions of Abe Lincoln, the Rev. Martin Luther King and John Kennedy seem very much currently to have been stampeded by the self-perpetuating influence of such despicable, murderous bastards as Che' Guevara, China's Mao Tse Tung and Kim Jong-un. I mean, isn't it easier to find a Che' t-shirt than a John Kennedy? How long before kids return to school with "I Love Kim" backpacks?
The world's always been a dangerous place, but we humans offer it an inordinate amount of help to keep things that way.
Various factions among us long assumed that we would eventually meet our end as a species by way of nuclear war, an asteroid, cosmic rays, disease or -- it's painful to write this -- climate change. But now, along comes yet another study indicating that men's sperm counts, especially among Western Europeans, continue to diminish in large numbers. Some researchers believe it's caused by the chemicals and plastics we use (no brain surgeon thinking needed there), and I tend to agree they play a significant influence.
Then again, maybe it's just about time for Homo sapiens and everything like us to check out the way millions of other "ancestor" species -- be they insects, fish, birds, mammals, carrots or snails -- have exited over the millennia. Maybe we've served a purpose and it's time for the old species heave-ho so Ma Nature can introduce the next circus attraction of the day. As much as we like to think we're going to live forever, or that we can continue our living legacies by bowing to biological processes and "love affairs" by making children, that's only a short-term solution, and ultimately the evolutionary curtain closes in anticipation of the next act.
Trump confronts North Korea: What's he supposed to do? Offer Kim U.S. citizenship? Trump, thankfully, is no Obama, and I'm grateful that he has enlisted the services of generals and other military personnel who don't have the luxury of sitting on their hands, attempting to wish Kim away to the cornfield. The leftist media, so out of most rational loops by now, is hardly worth attention as its associates blame Trump for everything and the Obama bunch for nothing.
Don't expect Princeton U. to provide men of strength: Nope, they're all in with hiring somebody to counsel masculinity out of male students, apparently because boys and men are just too, um, male-like. When I read about this -- and when I read that Google fired the employee who spoke truth regarding an apparently secret fact that men and women are different -- I actually felt as though I had just received a quick hit of testosterone, causing me to feel fresh and ready about telling Princeton's administrative and faculty morons where to go. Parents, if you're actually spending money to send, particularly, your sons to Princeton and other institutions of higher "leaning" like this, pull 'em out and get a refund. This crap, like "diversity," will kill both mind and body, if you let it.
As a side note: Last year, a college from which I received credits totally, absolutely and finally dropped me off their mailing list when I sent an e-mail and complained that a new "world peace" curriculum they were offering actually included in the introduction the words "social justice," and I suggested this was all about socialism and communism. Another fine example of colleges and universities striving to tear this country down - to be replaced by what, exactly? Hell by any other name is called Democrats.
