I've been arguing for awhile that an Unhappiness Explosion broke out around 2013, and it seems to be related to Obama's re-election/second term. My hypothesis, laid out in my 2008 book America's Half-Blood Prince: Barack Obama's "Story of Race and Inheritance," has been that the Obama Administration tried to keep the race resentment tamped down...

From the Washington Post: As police struggle to solve homicides, Baltimore residents see an ‘open season for killing’ By Wesley Lowery, Steven Rich and Salwan Georges December 27 ... As Baltimore has seen a stunning surge of violence, with nearly a killing each day for the past three years in a city of 600,000, homicide... Read More
From CNN: Hmmhmmmh ... Chicago, Baltimore, and St. Louis ... Weren't those in the news? Something to do with Black Lives Matter? Each of these cities has experienced "fairly notable and large increases in homicides over the period in question," while "other places have been more flat," said Webster, who was not involved
From Reuters: Funny how that works. Whatever happens, the solution is More Immigration. Then they could procreate and that would really reduce the violence.
Life expectancy in the United States dropped again in 2016, the first time in over a half century that life expectancy declined two straight years. Death rates were up in people under 65, while down among oldsters. "Unintentional injuries" were up almost ten percent in 2016 over 2015. That includes car accidents, which have been... Read More
Commenter loveofknowledge writes: The whole time the Ferguson Michael Brown hoax was going on, I was asking myself, why are they doing this? Are they TRYING to start a riot? If the media gets everybody convinced that this was a case of an innocent black kid murdered by a racist white cop… well then people... Read More
From the BBC: If we can't have faith in the purity of the leaders of the international soccer movement, whom can we trust? Seriously, in the midst of a giant moral panic like this, it's worth remembering that some innocent men and many no-more-guilty-than-average men are likely to be unfairly persecuted. On the other hand,... Read More
From the New York Times, an open secret I've been hinting at for awhile in the comments section of iSteve while waiting for the other shoe to drop: Touring stand-up comedians are not necessarily the world's most mentally well-balanced individuals, so I'd be inclined to cut talented ones a little slack. But Louis C.K., who... Read More
One of the weirder phenomenon of recent years were bimbo magazines like Cosmopolitan jumping on the Woke Train with photo spreads on Alicia Machado and endorsements of Get Out as revealing the true nature of white women. Teen Vogue was another. Who buys angry feminist fashion magazines anyway? Not many people, apparently. From the NYT:... Read More
From Newsweek: One reason fans aren't bothering to show up on time for games is that the NFL's offensive execution has appeared to be more inept this year: offensive production is down. The median team scored around 22.4 points per game for all of last year, while the median through the first 7 weeks this... Read More
From FiveThirtyEight, a typical MSM handling of the unfortunate statistics released today by the FBI: So, nationally, the homicide rate is up over 20% since 2014, the year of Ferguson and BLM. That's over 4,400 more dead bodies in the last two years of the Obama Administration than if the homicide totals had simply stayed... Read More
From the New York Times: It seems pretty obvious that the murder bulge has been concentrated among blacks killing blacks, especially in cities where Black Lives Matter was active and successful at discouraging cops. In both Baltimore and Chicago, for example, the increase in murders started the same week as BLM protests. There were 14,164... Read More
From the New York Times: How many incremental people have been murdered in Baltimore due to the Obama Administration / BLM / Soros etc. promotion of this case in March 2015?
From WTOP: The key moments in why Baltimore was swept under by the Obama Administration's pet Black Lives Matter movement but New York City wasn't came in late 2014 and early 2015. For awhile after that fat black guy selling contraband cigarettes died of a heart attack in Staten Island, it looked like New York... Read More
From the Baltimore Sun: In a tweet, Fenton extends his list of Baltimore police shootings through August backward: 2012 11 2011 10 2010 9 2009 11 So, Baltimore 2017 counts as a triumph of Black Lives Matter. On the other hand, Baltimore has had 237 homicides so far in 2017 (which projects out to over... Read More
The Late Obama Age Collapse continues, but may be slowing. The Major Cities Chiefs Association released homicide totals for the first half of 2017 for 62 sizable police departments across the country. The aggregate number of homicides in the first half of 2017 was 3,081, up almost 3% from 2,994 in the first half of... Read More
From Bloomberg: Ex-Google employee James Damore was a doctoral student in Systems Biology at Harvard before being hired by Google. Obviously, he is ignorant about what Science says about males and females and should try reading a book for once in his life. LOL!! [UPDATE: I'm now not sure if he completed his Ph.D. at... Read More
From FiveThirtyEight: Murder Is Up Again In 2017, But Not As Much As Last Year By Jeff Asher JUL. 13, 2017 AT 10:47 AM Big U.S. cities saw another increase in murders in the first half of 2017, likely putting them on track for a third straight year of rising totals after murder rates reached...

From Vox, an article about factchecking that starts with an un-factchecked falsehood: Uh, the liberal Brennan Center estimated back in April 2017 that the homicide rate (the most reliable crime rate) was nationally 19% higher in 2016 than in 2014 and up 29% in the 30 biggest cities. The homicide surge has been concentrated in... Read More
From the New York Times: Central Americans, ‘Scared of What’s Happening’ in U.S., Stay Put By KIRK SEMPLE JULY 3, 2017 CHOLOMA, Honduras — His bags were packed, and the smuggler was ready. If all went well, Eswin Josué Fuentes figured he and his 10-year-old daughter would slip into the United States within days. Then,... Read More
More on the travails of the U. of Missouri following its BLM temper tantrum during the Black Fall of 2015:
Along with black slums, where the homicide rate shot up under the prodding of the outgoing Obama Administration, prime loci of the Late Obama Age Collapse have been college campuses and public schools. The Trump Administration's plan for curing the problems created by the Obama Administration is, apparently, to stop doing the things the Obama... Read More
The liberal Brennan Center at NYU is estimating that the homicide rate in the 30 biggest cities jumped 29% from 2014 to 2016 during the Late Obama Age Collapse. The FBI is now weighing in on why: mostly, no surprise, the anti-police initiative launched by the media and the Obama Administration known as "Ferguson:" From... Read More

Part of the Late Obama Era Collapse, along with rising murder rates, has been a mysterious rise in traffic death rates (especially for pedestrians). From Bloomberg: So the insurance companies are blaming smartphones, which has always been the single most likely cause. But they've been blaming phones for a long time, and apparently even the...

If you go back about 3500 years ago, the Late Bronze Age was going pretty smoothly with big, fairly stable civilizations / empires in the Fertile Crescent, Egypt, and Greece. But around 1200 B.C. most everything fell apart, leading to a dark age out of which eventually emerged a new Iron Age civilization. For example,... Read More
