Watch this video. This brother has knowledge to share about the whereabouts of the Hebrew Israelites scattered abroad the 4 corners of the earth. Pay close attention to the locations mentioned: Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone... (the same locations where the Ebola virus outbreak has occurred)
There is an attack and always has been an attack against the Children of Israel. (Rev 6:11)
A former Minnesota resident infected with the Ebola virus who traveled from Liberia to Nigeria before he died from the disease had planned to visit family back in the United States next month.
Patrick Sawyer, a 40-year-old father of three, sparked a global health scare when it was discovered that he had transported the virus across borders in Africa, and news of his plans to travel back to the Minnesota town where his wife and children still live ratcheted up fears that the virus could spread to North America.
"Patrick could've easily come home with Ebola," Decontee Sawyer, his wife, told KSTP-TV. She lives in Coon Rapids, Minn., with the couple's three daughters. "Easy. Easy. It's close; it's at our front door. It knocked down my front door."
Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian national who moved from Minnesota to Liberia to work for the country's ministry of finance, collapsed in an airport in Lagos last week after showing symptoms of the disease. He died Friday in what health officials determined to be the first probable case of the Ebola virus in Nigeria.
Sawyer's death has rocked the West African community in Minnesota, home to the largest Liberian immigrant population in the United States.
"Everyone knows Patrick," Decontee Sawyer told KARE-TV. "It's hit everyone's front door, and they feel like they've lost a best friend and brother, and they are awake now."
Decontee said Patrick had been caring for his sister, who had fallen ill with what later turned out to be Ebola.
There have been 1,201 reported cases and 672 deaths from the virus in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since the recent Ebola outbreak began in March, according to the World Health Organization.
According to Decontee Sawyer, her husband was scheduled to travel to Minnesota in mid-August for two of his daughters' birthdays.
Minnesota health officials met with community members Monday. Coon Rapids is home to a large West African community, and officials have warned residents to be on extra alert since Sawyer's death. A memorial service for Sawyer is scheduled on Sept. 14 in Coon Rapids.
"This can't happen anymore," Decontee Sawyer told KSTP-TV. "I don't want any more families going through what I'm going through. So I pray, and then I'm ready to fight."
The 34-year-old widow says she is working to raise awareness about the dangers of an Ebola outbreak in the United States.
"Patrick was coming here. What if he still wasn't displaying symptoms yet and came?" Sawyertold the Pioneer Press. "He could have brought Ebola here. Someone else could bring Ebola here.
"I don't want all of this to be for nothing," she said. "I have three girls who will never get to know their father."
See more images of this devastation in order to get the full gammit of this blasted wickedness on this earth. The Most High God Yah shall Judge righteously. Bless those muslims who showed love to their fellow man regardless of their belief. Religion separates and kills, but Spiritual Love among mankind overcomes all matters. Selah. Peace and Love to the innocent.
President Barack Obama landed at Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) in Dar es Salaam, bringing new economic hopes for Tanzanians.
With 700-person delegation of mostly businesspeople from the world's number one economy, expectations are high among the Tanzanian public that serious business deals will be inked for long lasting partnerships.
President Obama and his host Tanzania's Jakaya Kikwete have just confirmed their respective political will to cement and sustain the relations between the two countries.
Tanzania is endowed with immense forestry, mineral, fishery and agricultural resources, just to mention but a few, that yearn for tapping. Washington has already announced a 7 billion US dollar initiative to help tackle Africa's crippling electrical power, with Dar es Salaam well placed to get a considerable share of the resources under the initiative.
President Obama is this morning scheduled to visit an independent power plant run by the US-based Symbion. The inclusion of 700 businesspeople and the launch of Trade Africa last night speak volume of how serious the Americans are towards working with Africa, Tanzania in particular, economically.
Our belief is that Obama's visit has done a lot and far reaching marketing, elevating the profile of Tanzania globally. And with well articulated strategies, the country should soon start seeing an influx of visitors as tourists and prospective investors, not necessarily from the US.
While we commend the personal initiatives by President Kikwete for the job well done to cement diplomatic relations with the world leading economies--America, China, Japan... , we also think that this is the ripe time for the private sector in the country to seize the emerging opportunities.
Yes, business impediments erratic power supply, poor transport infrastructure, limited technology and unskilled labour still persist but that should never be excuse for sitting idle and complaining.
But complaints alone, without daring and taking initiatives, albeit under difficulties, would hardly take Tanzania to where it wants to be economically. It's time for local entrepreneurs to aggressively grab the opportunities and exploit them maximally. - Tanzania Daily News
When it comes to going to war, it’s not too often we get to see France beat the US to the punch. But in the case of Mali, the troubled north African country with a serious jihadi problem, the French are playing the usual American role of global terrorist-hunter, launching a string of airstrikes and deploying 2,500 troops to its former colony in what could end up being a long and dirty war, à la Afghanistan. Since its unwillingness to support the war in Iraq in 2003 (which launched a mindless jingoistic shit-storm in the States), the French track record of interventionism has actually been more belligerent than widely held American perceptions would have it.
Besides leading the NATO charge in Libya against Gaddafi in 2011, leading up to the Malian campaign, France actually sent troops to two different countries within a month. In December, soldiers were deployed to the Central African Republic and then, in early January, a helicopter commando mission in Somalia failed to free a French hostage. They also maintain the largest and readiest Western military presence on the continent, with permanently stationed troops in countries like Chad and Gabon. Not to mention the rich history of corrupt African dictators being propped up by French political leaders in exchange for syphoning natural resources.
When it comes to Africa, since the wave of independence movements directly following WWII, the French secretly considered the continent its colonial playground, even without the title of imperial overlord. In fact, there’s evidence of all sorts of sinister stuff, like alleged connections between Hutu militiamen in Rwanda and French military officials before the 1994 genocide.
In “Françafrique,” colonial influences have translated into extensive economic holdings that a delicate French economy now requires. While the current intervention in Mali could easily be justified on humanitarian grounds, or—if you’re feeling all War on Terror about it—preventing al Qaeda from finding a new home, if Iraq taught us anything, it's that war is rarely fought without economic interests at play. And with the rampant fiscal invasion of Chinese entities threatening France’s traditionally dominant sphere of influence in Africa, the war in Mali helps reinvent French power in the region.
Just consider that French state-owned nuclear engineering company Areva has huge interests in neighbouring Niger (the number four producer of uranium, globally) and the nearby Central African Republic. Add to that Guinea and Mauritania’s valuable iron deposits and Burkina Faso and Chad’s major cotton resources, and you can do the math. If the contagion of militancy from an Islamist Malian territory spread across borders, it could legitimately threaten those vital interests. - Vice Beta
On June 26, it said Obama "arrived in Senegal, the first stop of a three-nation African trip, focused on supporting democratic progress, and increasing US trade and investment."
It's his second African trip. He visited earlier as a freshman Illinois senator. He told Kenyans, "I want you all to know that as your ally, your friend and your brother, I will be there in every way I can."
He lied. America comes to exploit. At issue is controlling Africa's rich resources.
Obama's visiting Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. He'll return July 3. Why these countries? More on this below.
Controversy accompanies Obama. His one-week trip costs an estimated $100 million. At the same time, force-fed austerity harms growing millions at home. Poverty, high unemployment, hunger, and homelessness go unaddressed.
Obamanomics enriches corporate favorites and wealthy elites. Popular needs go begging to do so. Obama demands sacrifice. It's forced on America's most disadvantaged, unwanted and uncared for.
Foreign travel costs plenty. Hundreds of secret service, staff and others accompany Obama. Travel, accommodations, security and other costs are enormous.
Military cargo planes brought 56 vehicles. They include 14 limousines and three trucks. They're specially built for security.
Bulletproof glass will replace hotel windows where Obama and his family stay. Entire floors are needed to accommodate security and staff traveling with him.
US fighter jets provide round-the-clock air cover. In 2011, estimated White House expenses were around $1.4 billion. They include staff, housing, travel, entertainment and perks.
Expenses rise annually. They've increased exponentially during Obama's tenure. Perhaps they'll approach $2 billion this year. Estimates exclude classified amounts.
What's spent on Air Force One is secret. So are many other security related categories. Perhaps real White House expenses are double or more estimated amounts.
Americans pay plenty for presidents who betray them. Imagine what presidential largese could buy. America's hungry could be fed. The nation's homeless could be sheltered. Needy families could get free healthcare. Students hungry for knowledge could be educated.
Obama's trip might have cost more. Initial plans included a Tanzania safari. Counterassault team protection against wild animals doesn't come cheap.
Other Obama trips were criticized. Conservative estimates for his Hawaii vacations exceed $20 million. Perhaps they cost double or triple that amount. Air Force One's estimated hourly rate is about $180,000.
Obama's African visit reflects America's scramble for its resources. They're vast. They're some of the world's largest and richest.
They include oil, gas, gold, silver, diamonds, uranium, iron, copper, tin, lead, nickel, coal, timber, cobalt, bauxite, wood, coltan, manganese, chromium, vanadium-bearing titanium, and much more.
Continental agricultural lands are valued. So is offshore fishing. Senegal's strategically important. It's a regional hub. It borders Mali.
Washington provides military aid. The Pentagon trains Senegalese armed forces. America has an economic presence. Senegal's eligible for preferential trade benefits. The African Growth and Opportunity Act provides them.
US exports include vehicles, machinery, plastic, rice, and textile goods. Senegalese resources are extensive. They include oil, phosphate, gold, iron, copper, uranium, chromium, nickel, zircon, titanium, limestone, salts, barytine and fish.
South Africa's one of five BRICS countries. Others include Brazil, Russia, India and China. They comprise a significant economic and political block. They account for over 20% of world GDP.
They're on three continents. They cover more than one-fourth of the world's land mass. Their population exceeds 2.8 billion. It's 40% of the world total.
They have their own Joint Business Council. It encourages free trade and investment. China and Brazil agreed to a bilateral currency swap line. It involves trading up to $30 billion annually in their own currencies.
Doing so moves almost half their trade out of US dollars. Other BRICS partners may make similar moves. They endorsed plans to create a joint foreign exchange reserves pool. Initially it'll include $100 billion. It's called a self-managed contingent reserve arrangement (CRA).
They plan their own Development Bank. Initial capital will be substantial. Each country may contribute $10 billion for starters. It's to fund infrastructure and other development projects.
It'll operate separately from Western international lending agencies. It'll challenge their global dominance. BRICS prioritize multipolarity. Achieving it perhaps can end Western debt bondage.
BRICS have more global trade than America. They're too important to ignore. They challenge US dominance. They trade increasingly in their own currencies. They may eventually end dollar supremacy.
Perhaps a supranational one or basket of alternatives will do so. BRICS prioritize political and economic solutions. They reject military ones.
China's the world's largest exporter. India's an information technology powerhouse. Brazil's a dominant agricultural exporter. It's highly competitive. It has vast amounts of fertile land. It's known as "the world's biggest farm." Russia is oil and gas rich.
South Africa's the continent's largest economy. Its resources are worth an estimated $2.5 trillion. It's rich in gold, platinum, uranium, chrome and manganese ore, zirconium, vanadium, and titanium.
It trades extensively with America. It's second only to China. The PRC is Africa's largest trading partner. It's growing at the expense of America. President Xi Jinping prioritizes increasing strong economic relations.
African nations see China as a healthy counterbalance. It challenges traditional American and other Western dominance.
China's rapid growth requires increasing amounts of many resources. Oil, gas, copper and others are needed.
Getting them creates competition and friction with America. Washington wants unchallenged global control.
AFRICOM was established to exploit the continent's riches. Resource/mineral control defines America's agenda. Securing them at China's expense is prioritized.
Tanzania's strategically important. It's a regional hub. It borders eight countries. They include Kenya and Uganda to the north, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Burundi to the west, and Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi to the south.
It borders the Indian Ocean. It's south of the oil rich Horn of Africa. Its natural resources include hydropower, oil, gas, uranium, tin, phosphates, iron, coal, diamonds, gold, nickel land, rivers, lakes, wetlands, ocean waters, forest/woodlands, wildlife, and fish.
America's interest throughout Africa is exploitation and dominance. It seeks it through the barrel of a gun. It prioritizes excluding China. It pressures nations to comply. It threatens, inveigles, and bullies. It relies more on muscle than diplomacy.
Beijing seeks strategic relations. It does so diplomatically. It seeks mutually beneficially economic ties. It offers lucrative no-strings investments. They're too beneficial to refuse.
Obama likely plans more African visits. Others representing him come often. China's omnipresent on the continent. In 2012, its trade totaled about $200 billion. It's double America's amount. Its investments are welcome.
They benefit countries receiving them. Beijing gets increasing access to vital African resources. Mutually beneficial relations assure them. China's a welcome economic partner.
Washington has other objectives in mind. Brand Obama doesn't sell well. "Hope and change" reflects unilateralism, bullying and conflict.
Global spying shows how America operates. China takes full advantage. It's a reliable partner. It's representatives are welcome when they arrive. - SOTT.NET
