    Nairobi (AFP) - President Barack Obama's Kenyan grandmother, known as Mama Sarah, vowed Friday to cook a traditional meal for her grandson when he visits the East African nation, the birthplace of his father, later this month. "With regards to what food I will prepare for Barack on his visit, I will prepare all the traditional food available," she said, speaking her Luo language through a translator on a visit to Nairobi. She tempted him with the offer of dishes including fish, chicken and maize porridge.

    Lately, I've noticed a new trend coming out of the Russian media and press releases from the Kremlin. The new narrative seems to be saying that the United States should stop lecturing other countries on foreign policy and foreign engagements because all you have to do is look at Iraq and Libya to see the American result — chaos. And you know what? They're right. As an American, it sickens me to see the complete waste of blood and treasure in Iraq. Libya is just a side-show, an add-on, but just a pathetic. Iraq was a stable democracy when handed...

    Finds Challenge Ideas about Who Were the First Toolmakers Scientists working in the desert badlands of northwestern Kenya have found stone tools dating back 3.3 million years, long before the advent of modern humans, and by far the oldest such artifacts yet discovered. The tools, whose makers may or may not have been some sort of human ancestor, push the known date of such tools back by 700,000 years; they also may challenge the notion that our own most direct ancestors were the first to bang two rocks together to create a new technology. The discovery is the first evidence...

    President Obama’s daughter Malia has won her first marriage offer, and boy is he a keeper! Malia, who will be 17 on July 4, received a serious matrimony proposal from a Kenyan lawyer who’s willing to put all his wealth on the table to win her hand. Felix Kiprono reportedly told the scandal-loving Kenyan tabloid The Nairobian he’s willing to pay the president 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats as a dowry for Malia. ”I got interested in her in 2008,” when Malia was 10 years old, Kipromo told the newspaper. “As a matter of fact, I haven’t dated...

    President Obama's 16 year old daughter Malia is one lucky teenager. A lawyer in Kenya is offering to marry her "not for money, but for love." And to sweeten the pot, he will offer President Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats for her. So far, the White House has had no comment as President Obama no doubt weighs the pros and cons of the offer.  Sky News reports that Felix Kiprono told Kenya daily The Nairobian that he "got interested" in Malia in 2008. President Obama was then running for office for the first time and Malia was 10. Mr...

    Kenya's deputy president has said there is "no room" for homosexuality in Kenyan society, a widely-shared view in African countries that puts their leaders at odds with Western aid donors who back gay rights. William Ruto made the remarks at a church service on Sunday, the day U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived for talks. The United States has been at the forefront of calls for gay rights in Africa and criticizes anti-gay laws on the continent. "The Republic of Kenya is a republic that worships God. We have no room for gays and those others," Ruto told a...

    Nairobi - US Secretary of State John Kerry arrives in Kenya on Sunday for talks on security co-operation and ahead of US President Barack Obama's visit to his late father's home country. The trip to the east African nation is the first high-level visit since 2012, and comes after a year of tensions surrounding Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta being charged by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. The ICC has since abandoned the case against Kenyatta over his role in the 2007-2008 post-election violence, citing a lack of evidence and Kenya's failure to cooperate - somewhat removing Kenyatta's...

The relationship really melted down last year when Obama allegedly stonewalled the family over the funeral of Obama’s aunt Zaituni, which the president skipped in order to play another round of golf.

Churchill, after all, has been posthumously voted by his countrymen as the greatest Briton. The presence (and absence) of his bust in the White House was enough to create political...

    At the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast this week, President Obama addressed a room full of Christian leaders. What was clearly scripted to be a general Easter address came dangerously close to political posturing. During his remarks, the President shared that, “on Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned. But that's a topic for another day.” What followed was spirited laughter, as Obama’s quip was largely understood as a reference to...

Yet with demonic evil spanning the globe, and religion a life-and-death matter, punishment for defending one’s faith is now acceptable in America.

An estimated 79 additional students were wounded in the dawn attack, for which the Somalia-based group al-Shabaab took responsibility. “Sisi ni al-Shabaab!” the gunmen shouted — Swahili for “We are al-Shabaab!” — as they shot their way past armed guards and ambushed the 815-student Garissa University campus.

    Al-Shabaab terrorists interrogated students whether they were Christian or Muslim as they went door-to-door during this morning's early morning massacre at a Kenyan university, killing at least 15 people. The group raided the Garissa University campus shortly after 5am local time, overwhelming guards and killing anyone the suspected of being a Christian. Kenyan Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery said that only 280 of the 815 students in the college have so far been accounted for. The terrorists stuck mid-way through Holy Week, the most solemn period in the Christian calendar. Tonight, the Christian students were planning to celebrate the Last Supper...

    At least 14 people have been killed, but a spokesman for the jihadis said, “We’ve killed many people; Kenyans will be shocked when the go inside.” The Muslims were freed. Time for the Left and the Islamic supremacists to issue another report about rampant “Islamophobia,” so as to deflect attention from this. “Kenya Garissa University shooting: At least 14 dead after al-Shabaab terrorists storm campus and separate Muslim and Christian students,” by Heather Saul, the Independent, April 2, 2015:

    Al-Shabaab, the Somali jihadist group responsible for yesterday’s deadly attack on a prominent Mogadishu hotel, has released a graphic new video showing executions of unarmed civilians – identified as Christians by the AhlulBayt News Agency – at an unnamed location on the Somali coast. Some of victims in the video titled ‘In Remembrance 2,’ are forced to kneel at the ocean’s edge before being shot to death from behind. Others are marched out into the sea, with jihadists standing on an elevated sand dune at the beach’s edge firing automatic weapons at them in the distance. Water splashes as bullets...

    Villagers in a rural district of Kenya are getting a helping hoof to adapt to climate change. A newly introduced breed of "supergoat" is cutting the number of months per year that villagers in the district of Nyando go hungry. Galla goats are tough, but loving. They tolerate heat and drought and have great teeth (which means they rarely need to be culled due to worn-down chompers). The goats also produce a lot of nutritious milk and mature more quickly than the old straggly looking breeds that the Nyando farmers are used to keeping. And the females are really good...

    ...According to the Daily Nation's story, restaurant representatives claimed the policy came into effect last year after a brazen robbery by armed gunmen. "We don’t admit Africans that we don’t know because you never know who is Al-Shabaab and who isn’t," said Esther Zhao, the restaurant's "relations" manager, referring to the al-Qaeda-linked terror group based in neighboring Somalia... A Kenyan government official quoted in the article claims that, whatever the restaurant's justification, the no-Africans-after-dark policy "amounts to racial and ethnic profiling, which is unconstitutional." Not long after the Daily Nation was published, authorities arrested the restaurant's owner, Zhao Yang, on...

    President Obama, keynote speaker at the 130th annual Gridiron event. President Obama took advantage of his unchallenged podium at the 130th annual Gridiron Club dinner to sideswipe the likes of Gov. Scott Walker, conservative former neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Fox News talking head Bill O’Reilly – as well as those who question the truth about his birth certificate. Early in the presentation, Obama thanked Clarence Page, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, for his years of friendship, saying they go “way back,” various media reported. And that’s when Obama made his first snipe at those who still wonder at...
