After his career in politics, Lugar continued work through the Lugar Center, focused on global food security and aid effectiveness. He was a professor at Indiana University and led the Richard G. Lugar Symposium for Tomorrow’s Leaders at the University of Indianapolis. He held 46 honorary degrees from universities around the country, and Queen Elizabeth bestowed upon him the rank of...

    Speaking at the Women’s Leadership Luncheon in Gaborone, Botswana on Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama praised the country for being a “thriving democracy” filled with “kind and generous people.” A U.S. Department of State report on Botswana’s human rights record, however, concludes that the country is still struggling with problems such as violence against women, child abuse, and discrimination. “[I]t is a pleasure to be in this beautiful country that embodies what my husband has called ‘a vision of Africa on the move,’” Obama said at the luncheon in Gaborne where young women were honored for their leadership.

    Nobody watching President Barack Obama talking to President Dmitry Medvedev to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and addressing a university audience could have failed to notice that Moscow was not a pre-Presidential election Berlin audience. The first was courteous, the second displayed no emotion and the third was cool. No chemistry there; added to which his visit was overshadowed by Michael Jackson's funeral. The main achievement was a missile deal that favoured Moscow, which did not go down well with his political opponents at home and has yet to receive the Senate's fiat. But there was also agreement reached to allow...

    Fox News ^ | August 7, 2013
    n a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia's harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow's stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there. Instead of visiting Putin in...

    Did former President Obama try to co-opt media coverage of President Donald Trump's international trip by making Italy his first stop in an all-expenses paid trip around the world? Isn't this the first time that a former president traveled a route nearly parallel with that of the new President? Obama departed for Italy on Friday, one day before the People's President embarked for Saudi Arabia. The Obama private jet was encircled by six Eurofighter Fourth Wing fighter jets en route to Italy for his five day stay at the $15,000 a night Borgo Finocchieto, thirteenth century restored village, owned by...

    Do you know what Obama did in South Africa? You're not going to believe it. It's the biggest disgrace in the history of the U.S. presidency. But the mainstream media won't say a word- it's a total blackout. This is (as Obama would say) a "teachable moment." Ninety-plus percent of President TrumpÂ’s coverage by the U.S. mainstream media is negative. Terribly negative. Horribly negative. Remarkably negative. That same media adores and idolizes former President Obama. The difference in the way they are treated is remarkable. Remember it was Obama who first separated illegal alien parents from children. The media said...

    Rank Hypocrisy: Since before he took office Democrats and their supporters began claiming that Donald Trump was a closet Nazi and White Supremacist for daring to point out that Muslim extremism exists and Mexicans and Central Americans are in our country illegally. What’s more, they claim that all of his supporters are no different, and we can see signs of that everywhere there are pro-Trump rallies: Leftists and Antifa thugs show up to shout and fight, many carrying signs like “Punch A Nazi” and “No More White Supremacists.” But what about when former President Barack Obama praises a black South...

    Former US President Barack Obama arrived in Kenya on Sunday for a quick family visit before he heads to South Africa to attend Nelson Mandela's birthday tribute. This is his first trip to the country of his father's birth since leaving office. Obama met Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, opposition leader Raila Odinga and other top officials after his arrival. On Monday, he'll attend the inauguration of a sports and vocational center founded by his sister, Auma Obama.

    Former President Barack Obama will travel to Kenya and South Africa next month for an Obama Foundation initiative, where he will meet with the two countries' presidents and hold a town hall with 200 new Obama Foundation leaders in Africa. According to a press release issued by the former president's office on Friday, Obama will meet with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga, the country's former prime minister. "President Obama will travel to Alego for the inauguration of the Sauti Kuu Foundation’s Sports, Resource and Vocational Training Centre, where he will deliver brief opening remarks," the statement...

    South Africa is busy Zimbabwifying itself, ready to expropriate white-owned farms without compensation. At this point, it should be a pariah state. But in goes President Obama, likely to egg them on. The gushy New York Times piece about it pretty well calls Obama's planned trip to play community organizer abroad in South Africa a wonderful thing. He’s been photographed kite-surfing with Richard Branson off Necker Island, relaxing on David Geffen’s yacht in French Polynesia with Bruce Springsteen and Oprah Winfrey, river-rafting with his family in Bali and posing with a celebrity chef in Tuscany. To those who have...

Mr. Obama is inaugurating his most significant international project as an ex-president, with an announcement on Monday that the Obama Foundation plans to convene 200 young people this July in Johannesburg for five days of meetings, workshops and technical training. At the same time, Mr. Obama will deliver a lecture to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, whom he eulogized after his death five years ago by saying he “makes me want to be a better man.” The choice of Mandela and South Africa are freighted with symbolism for Mr. Obama at a time when...

    After a productive trip abroad, President Barack Obama headed home Sunday on a collision course with Republicans on immigration and an oil pipeline project, showdowns that threaten prospects for cooperation over his remaining two years in office. Given his faltering political support in the U.S. and his party's recent election losses, his trip to China, Myanmar and Australia appeared to offer respite. The president, who was due to arrive in Washington late Sunday, basked in policy breakthroughs with China and warm welcomes in Myanmar and Australia. "I intend to build on that momentum when I return home," Obama said at...

    Trying to tie up loose ends of his foreign policy agenda, President Barack Obama on Saturday instead found world leaders more focused on someone else: President-elect Donald Trump. Global hand-wringing over America’s next president has taken much of the wind out of Obama's final overseas trip. Adopting an altruistic tone, Obama has offered frequent reassurances that the U.S. won’t renege on its commitments. Yet he’s been at a loss to quell concerns fully, given new signals from Trump that he intends to govern much the way he campaigned. Obama’s visit to Peru, the last stop on his trip, has brought...

    President Obama spoke to a group of young Southeast Asian leaders Friday in Malaysia and warned them about about avoiding the "pitfalls" the United States suffers from, the Washington Times reports. Human Rights Watch says on its main Malaysia page that the country’s government has engaged in a "strong crackdown on civil and political rights, including charging organizers of peaceful demonstrations. Though he had promised to repeal the Sedition Act, Prime Minister Najib Razak pushed through amendments to strengthen it, as well as a repressive counterterror law." Obama, however, warned the leaders about such American weaknesses as racial divides, income...

    President Barack Obama toasted the founding dictator of post-colonial Tanzania on Monday, who collectivized the nation’s low-tech agricultural sector, established a one-party state and left that African nation’s economy in ruins.“[Y]ou might say an American child is my child. We might say a Tanzanian child is my child,” Obama said after quoting the Tanzanian saying “my neighbor’s child is my child.”“In this way, both of our nations will be looking after all of our children and we’ll be living out the vision of President [Julius] Nyerere,” Obama continued. “The core values that he proclaimed for Tanzania also describe what both our...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | November 17, 2015 | William Kilpatrick
    The bombing of a Russian passenger jet over the Sinai was most probably the end result of a stealth jihad operation. That might seem like a strange way of putting it, because we usually think of stealth jihad as something that radical Muslims do to subvert non-Muslim societies. Yet, unless there were already a stealth network in place, its unlikely that an ISIS operative would have been able to get by security and place a bomb on board the Russian plane. Although ISIS has taken credit for the bombing, they probably did so with the help of another group -...

    Michelle Obama has given the Queen an early birthday surprise by announcing she will accompany the US President when he has lunch with Her Majesty later this week.Mrs Obama has struck up a firm friendship with the Queen during her previous visits to the UK, and famously ignored royal protocol to put her arm around the monarch's shoulders in 2009. Until now, the US Embassy had indicated that President Barack Obama would be on his own for a private lunch with the Queen at Windsor Castle on April 22, the day after she turns 90.But Buckingham Palace has confirmed that...
