    'A British man who offered himself as a hostage to save the lives of a group of children was today described by colleagues as a 'born leader'. Mitul Shah, 38, a sales executive from London attempted to strike a deal with the terrorists, replacing children with himself, a heroic act which gave several victims vital time to escape. The selfless father did not get through to the gunmen and was shot alongside a number of children in the Kenyan tragedy, leaving behind his wife and two-year-old daughter. Today his employers, the cooking oil company Bidco Oil, and his work colleagues...

    Don’t you remember? Most of America, of course, doesn’t. The mainstream media never told the masses. They were too busy fawning over the fraud who wound up being awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Sick irony, that. As the smoke clears and the body count mounts from the appalling Islamic terrorist attack on the shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, the fact that Obama had a personal hand in paving the way for groups like Al-Shabab to flourish in that part of Africa gets no coverage. Those of us who pay attention to the real news know that in 2006, as...

    Kenya's presidential rivals are still waiting for the results of Monday's election, as a vote count beset by glitches enters a fourth day. With 80% of constituencies declared, Uhuru Kenyatta has a clear lead, with just under 50% of the vote. If he fails to secure more than 50%, he will face a run-off vote against his rival, Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Mr Kenyatta is due to face trial in The Hague in July for crimes against humanity. He is accused of fuelling communal violence after the 2007 election that saw more than 1,000 people killed and 600,000 forced from...

    A racially charged beating of a white Alabama man by a throng of African-Americans is not being investigated as a hate crime, despite one witness' claim that she heard an assailant exclaim: "Now that's justice for Trayvon." Matthew Owens, of Mobile, Ala., was assaulted with baseball bats, paint cans and other weapons at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday after telling a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive, according to Ashley Rains, public information officer for the Mobile Police Department. After the children left the area, a group of adults armed with weapons returned and...

    MOBILE, Alabama -- Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he's in critical condition. According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink. Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens. Owens' sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. "It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed." Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked...

    Pictures of Barack Obama are surfacing on a scholarly research site that show him shouting through a bull horn in front of possible members of the African Luo tribe named as his ancestors in Kenya. Other pictures without captions show Obama in African tribal attire with two other men; and with at least 10 men in western clothes. Yet another picture shows him with a group of women wearing traditionally African attire that may or may not be his relatives.

    A new Ipsos/Reuters poll offers what looks to be an unfortunate preview of what lies ahead for the trial of George Zimmerman – particularly as it relates to how the population will potentially react. Perhaps it’s not surprising to see that the attitudes towards Trayvon Martin’s fatal shooting are heavily divided along racial lines, but it’s not any less disheartening. The poll finds that 91 percent of Blacks believe Trayvon was killed unjustly. Yet, only 35 percent of whites feel that way. The online poll also revealed that 59 percent of Hispanics believed Martin was wrongly shot by Zimmerman. On...

    In his celebrated address to the Conservative Political Action Conference this past February, Andrew Breitbart predicted that the left and the media would do exactly what they are doing today: concoct false accusations of racism to divide Americans and intimidate opponents of President Barack Obama. Breitbart specifically singled out Al Sharpton and MSNBC, anticipating that they would cynically use empty "dog whistle" accusations to inflame racial tensions. He noted that it made no sense for Sharpton to have a prime time program "unless you understand what they're doing": This is gonna be the dog whistle election cycle. They tested it...

    Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga – who Barack Obama helped place in office in a power-sharing agreement to stop deadly rioting by Odinga’s followers – is now the target of a devastating book by a former top adviser that threatens his prospect for re-election. Miguna Miguna has handed over to WND senior staff reporter Jerome R. Corsi an 800-page manuscript of the book, which was scheduled to be published in Kenya this year.

    NAIROBI, Kenya: A US government-backed program is telling young Kenyans that “Yes Youth Can!” in a political program designed to improve leadership skills that carries overtones of President Barack Obama’s election message. Hundreds of young Kenyans gathered Tuesday for the program’s first county-level meeting. The initiative, though, has caused anxiety among Kenyan politicians who fear the $45 million project is a way to oust them from power, prompting the US Embassy to issue several clarifications US Ambassador Scott Gration said in an e-mail on Tuesday that the US is not empowering young Kenyans to overthrow the government. “We are working...

    THE EXTENT OF THE DECEPTION PERPETRATED BY OBAMA SUPPORTERS IS MINDBOGGLING I have received information from multiple sources that Congressional Republicans are fully aware that Barack Hussein Obama is a Constitutionally illegal President and has committed felonies both before and after occupying the Oval Office. Specifically, Obama is not a natural born citizen and, therefore, has never been eligible for the office of President. In addition, Obama has forged his birth documents and Selective Service registration and uses a Social Security number not issued to him. The Republican establishment has decided that challenging Obama on those issues will be ineffective...

    For most of the Obama administration, we only had to worry about the economic destruction he was fomenting. Now the threats and actions are becoming physically violent. It’s getting scary out there. Forget about running guns to Mexican drug cartels via “Fast and Furious.” Most of the people killed with those guns were Mexican, and they were doing a lot of that even before the Obama administration got into the business of adding to their arsenals. But now we have Democrats, like North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue telling us that maybe we should forgo elections for a few years. Others,...

    With absolutely no proof of any kind of who he really is, Barack Obama made it to the Oval Office in 2008. There was no media vetting of the largely absentee senator from Illinois, who even back then had the temerity to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. All anyone ever had to go on was an autobiographical book suspected of being ghost-written by an unrepentant domestic terrorist. We all know how it goes with politicians and autobiographical books.

    EXCLUSIVE. It seems that Obama might have borrowed his "Together We Thrive" slogan from Kenyan Prime Minister and fellow Luo clansman Raila Odinga. Odinga used the highly similar slogan "Fairly we share, together we prosper" in his party's 2007 manifesto and his campaign literature. The slogan conveys a plan for redistributing power and wealth to the lower economic classes in Kenya. This plan is explained in detail in Odinga's literature and that of his party, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM). The relationship between Obama and Odinga is a close one. According to this Wikipedia page: In a January 2008 BBC...

The failure comes with dire consequences, opening the door for any member of the public to move to court to request for dissolution of Parliament.

Malcolm would have been 84 years old on May 19, 2009. Africans in New York City have made a pilgrimage to Malcolm’s gravesite every year since Feb. 21, 1966. While it is unlikely that U.S. President Barack Obama will acknowledge Malcolm’s joining the ancestors, people from Cape Town to Nova Scotia and Brazil to Brixton definitely will. Unlike other U.S. presidents, President Obama knows who Malcolm was and what he stands for. Like many...

    Kenya's President Mwai Kibaki has asked eight senior officials to step down pending inquiries into two corruption scandals. One involves the reported loss of $26m in a subsidised maize scam. The other centres on the disappearance of hundreds of thousands of dollars in the education ministry. President Kibaki has asked the officials to vacate their offices for three months to allow for inquiries into the allocation of public funds. Four of the officials are permanent secretaries. Just hours before Mr Kibaki's move, two of the officials - both senior aides of Kenya's Prime Minister Raila Odinga - had announced they...

    The US spy chief, Mr. Leon Edward Panetta, left Kenya on Sunday after a four-day visit during which he is said to have held talks with President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga, The Standard daily reported here on Monday. Panetta, who is the Director of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the world's leading spying agency, arrived in Kenya a day before controversial Muslim cleric, Sheikh Abdullah Faisal, was secretly put on a chartered South African gulfstream jet and deported to his native country. However, the police were said to reluctant to link the spymaster's presence in the country to...

    Source link If your television declares John McCain the president elect on the evening of November 4th, your television will be lying. You should immediately pick up your pre-packed bags and head straight to the White House in Washington, D.C., which we will surround and shut down until this attempt at a third illegitimate presidency is reversed. A McCain "win" will not be illegitimate because I disagree with his policies, but because he himself has rendered it illegitimate. He and his campaign and allied supporters have sought to illegally remove hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls, fraudulently registered...

    A mob in central Kenya has beheaded two suspected members of the Mungiki, a gang itself famous for decapitating its victims, police say. The two young men were beheaded and had their fingers chopped off... Twenty-one men who had been charged over the April violence were freed on Friday alongside former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga. Once a pseudo-religious group of dreadlocked youths who worshipped spirits in Mount Kenya and embraced rituals such as female circumcision, the Mungiki has evolved into an extortionist gang notorious for beheading its victims.

    The US has imposed a travel ban on a senior Kenyan government official for obstructing efforts to rid the country of corruption. Johnnie Carson, the US state department Africa chief, said he was considering bans on three other officials - but declined to release any names. Kenya agreed to carry through reforms after 1,300 people died in post-election violence last year. But the US believes some officials have deliberately been blocking the reforms.

    WASHINGTON – In a tape released Sunday by al-Qaida's media wing, terrorist leader Osama bin Laden said President Barack Obama is "powerless" to stop the war in Afghanistan. SITE Intelligence Group, a terrorist-monitoring firm that translated the address, said bin Laden, whose al-Qaida organization was behind the Sept. 11 attacks, blamed the war on the "pro-Israel lobby" and corporate interests. IntelCenter, another company that monitors terrorist propaganda, said the 11-minute video shows a still picture of bin Laden while audio of the address plays. Bin Laden's address to the American people comes two days after the eighth anniversary of the...

    The president’s chief economic adviser warned Friday that the nation’s unemployment rate could stay “unacceptably high” for years to come — a situation that would seriously complicate Barack Obama’s ability to convince Americans that he’s beating back the recession. “The level of unemployment is unacceptably high,” National Economic Council Director Larry Summers said Friday. “And will, by all forecasts, remain unacceptably high for a number of years.” Summers’ comments came in a briefing with reporters ahead of Obama’s speech in New York City on Monday, marking the one-year anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, an event widely regarded as...

    President Barack Obama's plans for a televised back-to-school address to students next week are drawing fire from some conservatives, who say he's just trying to indoctrinate them to his political beliefs. In the Sept. 8 speech, Obama will challenge students to work hard, set goals for their education and take responsibility for their learning, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a letter to principals. The Education Department is encouraging teachers to create lesson plans around the speech, using materials provided on the department website, that urge students to learn about Obama and other presidents.
