    Former First Lady Michelle Obama reveals in her upcoming memoir that she vowed never to forgive President Donald Trump for questioning her husband’s birth certificate. “Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him,” she wrote in her book, according to the Washington Post. Trump famously challenged Obama’s birth certificate until the president released a copy of his long-form document in April 2011 at a press conference.

    Devon Brown would have been just another statistic - one of the 486,900 black inmates in US state and federal prisons by the end of 2016. But an academic year in Kenya during his seventh grade changed his life forever. "Honestly it turned me into the man I am today. From a boy with limited options in inner-city Baltimore to a man who has now run an ice-cream company with revenues of $400,000 (Ł310,000) as its CEO," he reflects. Mr Brown's childhood had all the ingredients for failure. Born on 9 January 1990 in East Baltimore, his late mother was...

    This November will mark 40 years since the founding of an organization that has gained greater geopolitical prominence than most non-state actors ever will. Millions of Kurds— the world’s largest nation without a state, oppressed by the autocratic states that occupy their lands— support it and consider it their political representation on the world stage. In the struggle against occupation and denial of Kurdish identity, it has evolved an ideology based on direct democracy, ecology, pluralism, and women’s liberation that poses answers to questions asked by political movements around the world for generations. This is the PKK— Partiya Karkeren Kurdistan...

    GOMA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO — At least 14 civilians were killed on Saturday in a six-hour attack by rebels on the town of Beni in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, local officials told Reuters, warning the unrest may hamper efforts to quash an Ebola epidemic in the area. The latest outbreak of the deadly disease has been focused in North Kivu and Ituri provinces, which have been a tinder box of armed rebellion and ethnic killing since two civil wars in the late 1990s. Militants believed to belong to the Allied Democratic Forces, a Ugandan Islamist group active in...

    He's back! President Obama has emerged from his supposed cloistered life to attack President Trump. Obama broke with a tradition apparently only modern Republican ex-presidents follow, which is not to speak ill of your successor.Obama, who reportedly has been running his "Organizing for America" operation, along with his White House aide Valerie Jarrett from his expensive home in a Washington neighborhood, spoke to a group of University of Illinois students last Friday, claiming it was his policies, not those of President Trump, that have produced the current economic boom."When you hear how great the economy's doing right now, let's...

    NY Slimes ^ | 9/2/18 | Thomas Gibbons-Neff and Eric Schmitt
    The Pentagon is considering withdrawing nearly all American commandos from Niger in the wake of a deadly October ambush that killed four United States soldiers. Three Defense Department officials said the plans, if approved by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, would also close military outposts in Tunisia, Cameroon, Libya and Kenya, as well as seven of the eight American elite counterterrorism units operating in Africa. The shift in forces is part of the Pentagon’s defense strategy to focus on threats from China and Russia. But they represent a more severe cut of Special Operations forces in Africa than initially expected, leaving...

    Archaeologists have uncovered a large ancient cemetery in Kenya that sheds new light on the area’s early culture. Researchers from Stony Brook University and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History discovered the graveyard, described as the earliest and largest monumental cemetery in Eastern Africa. The find at the Lothagam North Pillar Site near Lake Turkana has surprised experts, offering new details of the ancient herders that used the cemetery. “This group is believed to have had an egalitarian society, without a stratified social hierarchy,” the researchers wrote in a statement. “Thus their construction of such a...

Witnesses said the two tourists had come too close to the animal near the Sopa hotel.

    Why do so many Americans still believe Barack Obama was born in Kenya? Maybe because he keeps insisting it's so. He did again last week, while visiting his ancestral homeland of Kogelo. Participating in the opening of Sauti Kuu Resource Center, a youth facility built by his half-sister, Auma Obama, he said: "Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya. When I was president it was a little bit harder to get up here cause my plane didn't fit the tarmac up here." "While three years ago my sister Auma introduced...

    Adding to the growing list of books about President Barack Obama and his family is a new memoir by his sister who was raised in Africa. Auma Obama, who now works at CARE International in Nairobi, didn't meet Barack until the 1980s and it's unclear how much new ground the book breaks. But she did have an interesting vantage point: that of the Obama family in Africa and how her brother's political career impacted it. In published excerpts of "And Then Life Happens," she wrote about meeting Hillary Clinton after the nasty primary race in 2008 and the media frenzy...
