    Accra, Ghana - They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Thousands of them. And many refuse to return. A new wave of African Americans is escaping the incessant racism and prejudice in the United States. From Senegal and Ghana to The Gambia, communities are emerging in defiance of conventional wisdom that Africa is a continent everyone is trying to leave. It is estimated that between 3,000 and 5,000 African Americans live in Accra, the Ghanaian capital. They are teachers in small towns in the west or entrepreneurs in the capital and say they...

    Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment." In plain English: s--- is everywhere. People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water. ... Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization...

    HEALTH bosses have confirmed they are facing an outbreak of the “eye-bleeding fever” after four people died of the suspected disease in weeks. Uganda’s health ministry has today finally admitted it is facing the risk of a large-scale explosion of the viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF). VHF causes victims to suffer a burning fever before beginning to bleed from orifices including their eyes, anuses and mouths. It comes after a girl, nine, was reportedly killed by the infection Uganda, and three people died in neighbouring South Sudan of similar symptoms. Uganda health minster Sarah Opendi confirmed emergency response teams are now...

    “Sir, respectfully, I have answered this question repeatedly,” Nielsen finally told Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who was at least the third lawmaker to raise the issue.“I have nothing further to say about it.” She acknowledged several times that the meeting, aimed at reaching a bipartisan immigration deal, was “very impassioned” and said several of the lawmakers including Trump used “tough language.” However, she said she did not hear Trump use the racially-tinged word or words attributed to him.

Tom Cotton, R-Ark., had released a joint statement on Friday with Perdue, denying the offensive language.

    On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, as frequent guest Jennifer Rubin was finally being credited as an "MSNBC political analyst," the alleged "conservative" Washington Post columnist demonstrated that she will continue to use her new MSNBC contributor status to deliver liberal analysis as she demonized a Republican guest by asking her if she is an "inhumane beast" who was "raised by wolves." Notably, just a couple of days ago, Rubin declared that she still wishes to be identified as a "conservative" when Hardball host Chris Matthews wondered if he should drop the "conservative" label for her as he admitted that...

    ABC Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos stepped up the liberal media’s condemnation of President Trump during Sunday’s This Week by heinously exploiting the heroic death of a U.S. soldier to take a snide shot at the President for his recent immigration comments. As he was wrapping up the show, Stephanopoulos drew attention to the death of Private Emmanuel Mensah. Private Mensah was an immigrant from Ghana who sacrificed himself to save several others from a fire that was consuming the apartment building he was staying at with family while he was on leave. Stephanopoulos Exploits Death of US Soldier to Take a...

    Recent remarks by president Trump supposedly made during a closed-door meeting on DACA and illegal immigration, where we are told he referred to Haitian and African illegal immigrants as people from "shithole countries" has taken the top spot in headlines the world over. As usual, the reference to people from shithole countries has Democrats yelling racism. In fact, if the President really did say what he reportedly said, the Left is again wrong, since such a reference has nothing to do with race and all to do with a lousy economic picture of the countries he eluded to. Trump would...

    Experts of the University of Zurich, in Switzerland, discovered a “multidrug-resistant” form of tuberculosis in eight refugees who came from the Horn of Africa.In a new official report the Swiss laboratory mentions several cases from 2016. The head of diagnostics Peter Keller says:“These bacteria exhibited a new combination of resistance mutations against four different antibiotics that had never before been seen.”The report says a laboratory in Germany also registered a case “with the same pathogen”. After checking data of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), a total of 21 cases were identified. All cases were related to...

    Crazed mobs of people belonging to a militant socialist political party called the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) spent Saturday morning vandalizing H&M stores at malls across South Africa over a monkey sweatshirt advertisement that the internet deemed to be “racist.”The EFF is currently the third-largest party in both houses of the South African parliament.A declaration from the EFF states that the party “draws inspiration from the broad Marxist–Leninist tradition and Fanonian schools of thought in their analyses of the state, imperialism, culture and class contradictions in every society.” The party has been repeatedly accused of racism against people who are...

    Companies controlled by Israeli mining magnate Beny Steinmetz sued fellow billionaire George Soros, claiming he cost them at least $10 billion through a defamation campaign that stripped them of rights to an iron ore deposit in Guinea and other business opportunities around the world. Soros funded law firms, transparency groups, investigators and government officials in Guinea in a coordinated effort to ensure BSG Resources Ltd. lost the rights to the Simandou deposit in April 2014, BSGR said in a complaint filed Friday in Manhattan federal court.

    President Donald Trump is under heavy fire today after allegedly making candid comments during an immigration meeting at the White House Thursday, calling countries like Haiti and many in Africa "sh*tholes." “Why are we having all these people from sh**hole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday. Trump denies he used that exact terminology but Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was in the room, claims the word was used multiple...

    ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — President Trump’s dismissal of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as “s-hole countries” whose inhabitants are not desirable for U.S. immigration shocked people around the world and provoked swift condemnation. “The African Union Commission is frankly alarmed at statements by the president of the United States when referring to migrants of African countries and others in such contemptuous terms,” said Ebba Kalondo, the spokeswoman for the African Union. The reaction from the United Nations human rights spokesman, Rupert Colville, was uncharacteristically blunt. He described the remark as “racist.” In Haiti, people took to Twitter to share...

    Libya today is far from what it was under Colonel Ghaddaffi. In those days it was a strong sovereign state with ample wealth derived from oil. . . . Failed government policies in many sub-Saharan countries have led to great poverty for the masses and a sense on hopelessness in the youth. . . Is it any surprise that black Africans are being enslaved and sold in Libya and elsewhere in the Arab worls? Under the Jammeh regime women especially were being taken to Kuwait or one of the other Arab states and sold into semi-slavery. Freedom publicized a few...

    President Donald Trump on Friday appeared to deny he insulted Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries” but admitted he used “tough” language during a discussion about an immigration deal with lawmakers. “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” Trump tweeted. “What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!” On Thursday, Trump used vulgar language during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on the meeting told NBC News. When they were talking...

    Well, there’s certainly been a s**t-storm over the President’s observation that maybe we don’t need any more immigrants from s**t-hole countries like El Salvador, Haiti and various African nations. This seems rather obvious; unless they come with skills-in-hand. America doesn’t need any more welfare recipients, crime or outbreaks of turd world diseases that we’ve already eradicated once.Make no mistake: this is why President Trump is considered a racist: he dares believe – and say - that opening our country to people coming from crime infested, disease ridden, terrorist harboring countries with no strings attached (skills, knowledge of our culture and...

    A Zimbabwean court has freed an American journalist who was charged with attempting to overthrow the government, after police accused her of insulting then-president Robert Mugabe. Martha O’donovan who works for Harare based Magamba TV had her case dismissed by court for a ‘patent absence of facts’. She was arrested in November in a dawn raid on her home in the capital after allegedly calling Mugabe, who was ousted in a bloodless coup a few weeks later, a ‘goblin whose wife and step-son bought a Rolls Royce’, on Twitter. It all depends on what they gather but for now the...

    READERS were angry. I had rained on their parade by venturing that the appointment of a new party boss to head South-Africa's dominant party was an insignificant game of musical chairs.But perhaps it is I who should have been annoyed. Nobody with a modicum of cerebral agility should see in the new South-African Strong Man, union boss-cum-tycoon Cyril Ramaphosa, a significant change of the guard.Surely by now it should be common knowledge that in Africa, you replace a despot, but not despotism; you oust a tyrant, but not tyranny.There's a reason Ramaphosa riles crowds at a South African Communist Party...
