Nigerian Human Rights Activist Blasts Obama; Says Bush Did More For Africa

bush-dancing-africa-2008

During an event Tuesday at the Washington-based Family Research Council, a Nigerian civil rights activist and attorney said that George W. Bush – not Barack Obama – will be remembered for his legacy of helping the African people.

“President Bush will really be remembered as the president who had the most impact on Africa of the last three presidents,” said Emmanuel Obege. “I think they’re no doubt about it.”

Via CNS News:

Obege was responding to a question by CNSNews.com at an event at the Washington-based Family Research Council, focused on the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and in Africa.

CNSNews.com had asked him to expand on his remarks about Bush having helped Africans by establishing the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), while Obama has promoted homosexual rights, including same-sex marriage, on his African visits.

Obege said Bush’s visits to Africa made a difference to countless people on that continent.

“When President Bush visited Africa he launched an initiative – a presidential emergency program for AIDS relief, which was meant to help combat a major pandemic that was taking so many lives,” Obege said.

“And for many of us who were there, who rejoiced to see what President Bush did. It was sad for us to see President Obama go to Africa and for the second year running his primary objective was sexual imperialism, where he was calling on Africans to legalize gay marriage.

“One doesn’t even want to go into the questions of how antithetical that would be to the very notions and the very programs that President Bush was trying to implement,” Obege said.

When asked to expand on his contrast of the impact on Africa of the Bush and Obama presidencies, Obege responded that each had very different priorities.

“The point I’m trying to make is President Bush actually did something that was relevant to the crisis that was facing the continent at the time,” he said.

“When you show up and you’re saying to the people of Africa ‘You need to legalize gay marriage’ – I had a lot of Africans say, ‘Well, when our presidents go to America we don’t say to you to legalize polygamy even though we have a lot of polygamy in Africa and we think it’s a great idea, but we don’t come to your country and tell you to do that.’”

Obege referred to Obama’s recent visit to Kenya where he lobbied for homosexual rights.

These are highlights from President and Mrs. Bush’s trip to Tanzania, Zambia and Ethiopia in 2007.

The trip demonstrated President and Mrs. Bush’s continued commitment to the people of Africa through the work of the George W. Bush Institute’s (GWBI) Global Health program. The trip also highlighted the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon® initiative, an innovative partnership between GWBI, the U.S. Department of State President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), and other private partners. The Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative leverages public and private investments and existing health infrastructures to combat two of the leading causes of cancer death among women in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America – cervical and breast cancer.

GOP RINO Heir Apparent Governor Jeb Bush!

Don Surber : Mustela Bushus Trey is my nominee. Jeb! helped found a charity that gave millions to Planned Parenthood while publicly professing to be pro-life. He is to the left of Donald Trump (Mustela Bad Hairus) on this issue. From Life Site News:

Until the eve of his presidential campaign, Jeb Bush was director of a philanthropy that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and financed its advocacy of “unrestricted access to abortion” around the world. The charity also approved money to global abortion providers while he sat on its board.

In 2010, Jeb was named one of the founding directors of the Bloomberg Family Foundation, established as a tax-exempt foundation to advance the vision of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He resigned from the board at the end of 2014 to prepare his presidential campaign.

While a Bush spokesman has responded to concerns by saying that Bush would not have voted on every initiative of the foundation, a pro-life leader told LifeSiteNews it “stretches credibility” that Bush was unaware of the foundation’s pro-abortion work, given the centrality of such work to the foundation’s mission, and its scope.

LifeSiteNews reached out to Bush for comment, but did not hear back by press time.

DNC Head,Obama Groupie And Walking Blonde Joke Debbie Wasserman-Schultz!

The Noisy Room: Debbie Wasserman Schultz gets the nod for my nomination this week. Wasserman Schultz is just the gift that keeps on giving for the Republicans. She’s a weapon of mass destruction for the Socialists… er, Democrats. She didn’t just screw up once when asked if she could tell the media the difference between Socialists and Democrats, she did it twice. Once with Chris Wallace last week and she just did it again with Chuck Todd. What a moron. It’s not just that she can’t answer a question, it’s that she’s so very bad at it. Then she lumped Hillary Clinton in with right-wing Republicans when she attacked the GOP. That one may have been on purpose. With the likes of brain trusts like Joe Biden and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, you can see why the Democrats have fallen to the Marxists. The stupid are easily infiltrated and overthrown from within. As Charles Payne said, the Debster couldn’t answer the question because there is no difference between the Democrats and Socialists. None.

You say pig, I say swine. For Debbie’s incompetence, she has been mercilessly pounded on by social media. Good. Some have commented that you are spelling ‘communist’ wrong. Heh. That’s actually more correct than you know. This all came about because Socialist Bernie Sanders is leading the race for the Democratic nomination. And the jackasses are going wild for him (that’s a party pun). Gee, I thought the media was on the side of the Marxists. What I think Wallace was trying to get her to do was defend Hillary somehow, but she’s just too dense to even do her job as the DNC Chairwoman. Either that or they have written the Hildebeast off, which I highly doubt. At any rate, their whole party is literally falling apart. It’s almost humorous. If the Republicans can’t beat these numbskulls, we deserve whatever we get. For being an incoherent, Socialist moron, Debbie should be the proud recipient of a golden weasel.

City Councilman and illegal migrant enabler Jhonny Pineda!

Puma By Design : My WOTW nomination this week goes to Jhonny Pineda, City Councilman of Huntington Park, (southeast Los Angeles), California.

Pineda just announced the appointment of two illegal immigrants to serve as commissioners on the city’s advisory boards.

Francisco Medina was appointed as Commissioner of the health and education commission and Julian Zatarain will laud over the parks and recreation commission.

This action reeks of pay to play. Medina interned for fellow council member, Gil Cedillo and Zatarain has only been in the country eight years and yes, both are in the country illegally.

What part of ILLEGAL does this newly elected obviously corrupt council member not get and who cares if the City’s legal counsel said that the appointments are legal, illegal is just that. ILLEGAL!

Pineda’s actions is a kick in the gut of every American and legal immigrant.

The ICE Otay Detention Center

Ask Marion :My nominee for Weasel of the Week is the ICE Otay Detention Center who are still detaining 27 Iraqi Christian refugees in the San Diego area. The 27 men, women and children fled Iraq earlier this year after ISIS took over the territory where they used to live. Members of the local Iraqi Christian community said that the government knows full well that the people being held are not criminals.

Just like we all know that the border in San Diego is open to everyone, except is you are an Iraqi Christian.

The pressure is building at the border in San Diego.

“These are people that have escaped ISIS, escaped slavery and refused to convert, only to be imprisoned by ICE with no explanation,” said local Iraqi Chaldean Christian leader Mark Arabo who appeared on Hannity on 8/3/15.

But so far end as cold as ice for religious refugees.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Forum:What Are The 5 Most Important Issues To You In The Coming Election?

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: What Are The 5 Most Important Issues To You In The Coming Election?

Don Surber : 1. Electing a Republican not named Jeb! Bush.

The Independent Sentinel : We need a president who will vacate all executive orders, memos, guidance issuances and every other misery Barack Obama put into place.

The new president needs to declaw the government agencies starting with the firing of the left-wingers fundamentally transforming us.

It’s in a way too late, but the nuclear deal needs to go. Treaty powers need to be restored and perhaps legislation needs to be passed that prevents these abuses by another Imperial President.

The military needs to be brought back up to par and the new president has to try to repair relations with allies and dump the communists and Fascists.

We need a president with an economic plan that doesn’t involve redistribution and over-investment in the exaggerated so-called science of climate change. We need to shrink the welfare state and get people back to work via the free market.

That is more than five but there are so many things wrong. Mostly we need a president who can restore our self-respect and unite us again. My concern isn’t what the socialists in the EU or what the fascists in the UN think of us, I care what we think of ourselves.

 Puma By Design :

1. Illegal immigration

2. Rebuilding our Defenses, Military. Thanks to Barack Obama, who has weakened our defenses, those who would have thought twice about attacking us eight years ago, no longer fear or respect us.

3. Reigning in the government PERIOD. From overreach, regulations to spending

4. Jobs, jobs, jobs

5. Education – parental control. Let the parents make the decisions, not bureaucrats and unions.

JoshuaPundit : My issues are as follows…and I’m fully aware that few politicians will be honest enough to actually discuss them in real terms with voters.

First, we need actual reform on both legal and illegal migration. This issue affects many of the others. I see it as encompassing real control of our borders, both physically and legally, and a return to the realization that immigration is a privilege extended by a sovereign state, not a ‘right.’ The diversity visas need to be ended and simple points system evolved for legal migration that applies to everyone…and because of the abuses of the last 8 years, criteria for rescinding the green cards of those whom do not meet this criteria. Illegal migrants likewise need to be compelled to register so that individual cases can be evaluated and a decision made on their continued legal residence based on criteria such as crime records, knowledge of English, employment, family members or employers willingness to be guarantors so the illegal migrants do not become public charges, etc.

Abuse of the H1B visas that have kept wages static for years in many industries needs to be stopped, and all decisions on new immigration subject to the effect on American workers already here. To my knowledge, the only presidential candidates whom have addressed this sensibly are Mike Huckabee, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz and Jim Webb.

Second, we need major reform of the tax code and a downsizing of the IRS. The entire tax code, in my opinion, needs to be rewritten so that all Americans pay taxes. I favor a design that simplifies the laws substantially, provides for perhaps 3 brackets for both personal and corporate income taxes,  eliminates most deductions and lowers rates. This approach would have enormous benefits.

The lower rates would actually increase revenues, as the increased money available to be spent or invested would generate other financial activity which could then be taxed. Most Americans whom work for wages wouldn’t even have to bother filing taxes, as they would be automatically deducted as they are now. Self employed persons could pay quarterly as many do now, simply providing 1099’s and a check, or those employed by corporations or doing work for hire like actors or musicians could have their taxes deducted by these corporations on their behalf.

A lowering of corporate taxation and a simplified tax code would also encourage domestic and (along with a genteel hint about possible tariffs)  foreign investment. You would once again see good paying blue collar jobs in America, and a far better balance of trade. This is exactly what happened with Japan in the1980’s and is why many ‘Japanese’ cars are now built by American workers in places like Kentucky and Ohio.

Third, we need to revamp the Civil Service rules. It’s all very well to rant about Big Government and the elimination of whole departments, but while that kind of bolshoi is a nifty applause line, reality is a different matter. For one thing, our courts in their wisdom have ruled that government employees have a property right to their jobs and it costs a large amount of time and money to fire anyone. Massive layoffs result in decreased  economic activity. While it might be nice to imagine that arrogant Uncivil Servant flipping burgers instead of sneering at you, the reality is that, multiplied by hundreds of thousands, his or her new salary as opposed to the $60K he  or she used to make affects everybody’s bottom line. And the byzantine regs of the civil service rules with their minutiae of job classifications limits what jobs people may do and where they can be transferred.Change that, and you can transfer workers where they’re needed and gradually shut down or even change the mission of various government departments and gradually downsize government by attrition.

Fourth, we to deal with our youth and our culture. America is full of kids with no fathers and no future beyond immediate gratification or maybe lucking into a coveted corner to sell crack on. They have no skills and no jobs, and even more importantly, many of them have no clue how to behave if they did. We need a wide spread government program to get these kids out of their environment and into better things. For some of them, this might mean apprenticeship programs involving private industry or even the military to teach them a trade. For others, it might mean jobs combined with room and board working at building up America’s infrastructure, and things like helping to fight fires or similar projects. In all cases, part of the game would be instructing them in America’s history and culture and teaching them to take pride in it.

For the same reason, school choice is absolutely essential. So is eliminating public employee unions or at least open shopping them.

Fifth, we need a president who understands strategic thinking and our military.This year, the Army failed to meet its recruiting goals. After all, with the involuntary mass layoffs, unsafe recruiting stations, the VA scandals, the current war on Christianity, the PC uber alles atmosphere and the likes of Barack Hussein Obama as commander in chief, is it any wonder?

This all needs to change. It isn’t enough to simply rebuild our military in manpower and equipment. We need to rebuild our military culture.

We once had a Federal office known as the Director Of Civilian Marksmanship. His job? Working with the NRA and similar groups to ensure that America’s youth were taught gun safety and shooting skills. He also saw to it that surplus military rifles were sold and distributed to them, as well as to ROTC programs around the nation. This was back in the days when kids received that first .22 from Dad and early lessons on how to use it safely…back when Dad still lived at home.

The result was that kids learned early about respect for  guns, and you didn’t see the mass shootings we have now. Plus, if America needed them, they were ready to go and a lot of them already knew how to shoot pretty well, I’d love to see that happen again, through the NRA and Jr. military programs like the Marine Corp’s Devil Pups. That’s how you rebuild a military culture.

For the past eight years, aside from having a president with little respect for our military except as  props and photo-ops, we have also had one whom has been an utter failure at strategic thinking. What that means is that you nurture and support alliances in strategic areas and horse trade with the bad guys from a position of strength, not weakness. Or, as Ronald Reagan once said, “We win, they lose.”

Our next president will have to be someone like that – whether we like it or not.

Laura Rambeau Lee, Right Reason : The five most important issues to me in the coming election are, in order from fifth to first:

5. Budget

4. Reining in overreaching and unconstitutional regulatory agencies such as the EPA and the CFPB

3. National Defense

2. National Security, encompassing immigration and border protection

And the number one issue most important to me:

EDUCATION. It is imperative that we, as a people and nation, understand the damage already done by progressives who infiltrated our education system. It began in the 1960s at the university level, but today the indoctrination begins in pre-K and continues through elementary, middle, and high school. You see it in our youth who have already accepted the socialist doctrine as preferable to our republican form of government.

Ask Marion :

1.Stop Illegal immigration and securing the borders.

2. Repairing the U.S. economy which includes everything from nullifying illegal trade agreements to creating jobs, jobs, jobs…;

3. Help Americans believe in a future which includes a great America after rebuilding our military strength around the world.

4.Fixing American Healthcare with an actual plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

5. Overhaul the Education system and restore the power of parents, states and the U.S. Constitution.

Well, there you have it.

Saturday Movie Matinee: A Warrior’s Funeral

While the nation mourned the death of an African lion, Hayward CA mourned the death of a police warrior – who was killed in the line of duty.

Via SF Gate:

Scott Lunger was a die-hard Oakland A’s fan and ice-cream lover who doted on his two college-age daughters. He slept in his car after his grueling shift as a Hayward police sergeant ended at 2 a.m. so he could play baseball in an over-45 league that started only hours later. He was like a kid in the candy store when a new call came over the police radio.

Those were just some of the memories shared as thousands of police officers, friends and citizens attended Lunger’s funeral Thursday at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

This is an undated image released by the Hayward Police Department shows Sgt. Scott Lunger. Lunger was shot and killed during an early morning traffic stop Wednesday, July 22, 2015.

A procession of police vehicles escorted Lunger’s body from the Chapel of the Chimes mortuary in Hayward to the arena. Mourners were greeted by a giant American flag hoisted by two Hayward Fire Department ladder trucks.

John Medeiros holds up a flag to pay his respects from the Paseo Grande overpass above Interstate 880 in San Lorenzo as the funeral procession begins to pass below.

Apparently, StemExpress receives fully intact babies from abortion clinics.

“Stem Express is trying to suppress a specific video recording,”Daleidan told CNN’s Alisyn Camerata.

“In a meeting with their top leadership, they admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”

Camerata quickly steered the conversation away from born alive infants to claims that fetal tissue can be used for cures for “all sorts of diseases” and “saves lives.” (Which is nonsense.)

This week’s winning essay,The Noisy Room’s Ted Cruz- A Matter Of Honor [Video] is all about Senator Ted Cruz’s calling out of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the Senate floor. Here’s a slice:

Ted Cruz threw down the conservative gauntlet in the Senate this week. This was inspiring… it is something I have never seen happen before in my lifetime. He boldly and honestly called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar. It was long overdue and immensely satisfying. The straw that broke the elephant’s back was the vote on reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. McConnell went one lie too far this time.

Cruz voted for Obama’s Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) the first go-around in the Senate based on McConnell’s word and he famously turned against the fast-track trade authority later. Because it was based on lies.

From the AP:

In a stunning attack on a leader of his own party, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying to him and said he couldn’t be trusted.

Cruz, a Texan who is running for president but ranks low in early polling, delivered the broadside in a speech on the Senate floor, an extraordinary departure from the norms of Senate behavior that demand courtesy and respect.

At issue are assurances Cruz claimed McConnell, R-Ky., had given that there was no deal to allow a vote to renew the federal Export-Import Bank – a little-known federal agency that has become a rallying cry for conservatives. Cruz rose to deliver his remarks moments after McConnell had lined up a vote on the Export-Import Bank for coming days.

“It saddens me to say this. I sat in my office, I told my staff the majority leader looked me in the eye and looked 54 Republicans in the eye. I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie, and I voted based on those assurances that he made to each and every one of us,” Cruz said.

“What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again, was a simple lie.”

A spokesman said McConnell would have no response. The majority leader was not on the Senate floor when Cruz issued his attack.

“Today is a sad day for this institution,” said Cruz with a heavy heart. “What we just witnessed this morning is profoundly disappointing.” Betrayal always is, especially from someone you really, really want to believe in. Cruz made his statements after McConnell set up a procedural vote to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, which expired last month. Democrats claim McConnell agreed to allow a vote on attaching the Export-Import Bank to “must-pass” legislation to win support from Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) for a trade package earlier this year.

When Cruz approached McConnell on the floor in a private conversation, McConnell, with biblical overtones, denied to him three times that there was such a deal. “The majority leader was visibly angry with me that I would ask him such a question,” Cruz said. “The majority looked at me and said ‘there is no deal, there is no deal, there is no deal.’” The good senator’s staff tried to warn him about McConnell, but Cruz just couldn’t believe that McConnell would lie to his face and to every other conservative out there like this. He was wrong and learned of McConnell’s treachery the hard way. But then Ted Cruz did something that no one in my memory has done… he called McConnell out for his lying ways on the Senate floor. McConnell’s errand boy say’s he has no response. Maybe not verbally, but Ted Cruz has made a very powerful and evil enemy. You know what? I don’t think he cares. Good.

Cruz pointed out that McConnell’s move to allow the Export-Import Bank vote shows that he does not always mean what he says – that he’s dishonest. “Well, we now know that when the majority leader looks us in the eyes and makes an explicit commitment that he is willing to say things that he knows are false,” Cruz added. He also pointed out that it could have ramifications down the road. That’s an understatement. We now have open warfare in the Senate and that is a good thing. “That has consequences for how this body operates,” Cruz said. “If you or I cannot trust what the majority leader tells us, that will have consequences on other legislation, as well as on how this institution operates.” Plainer and truer words have never been spoken.

It doesn’t end there. Cruz also berated McConnell for using a procedural maneuver to prevent other amendments from being offered to the Highway Bill. That’s the vehicle that will be used for the Export-Import Bank vote. In a breathtakingly hypocritical move, McConnell “filled the tree” just as Harry Reid frequently did. This was to stop amendments when Democrats had a Senate majority. Of course, when McConnell did it, Reid screamed to the heavens. McConnell also set up a vote on repealing ObamaCare. That particular maneuver was a faux move to appease conservatives – it would not have succeeded and McConnell knew it, so it was safe to set up the vote. Cruz is a smart guy and saw right through McConnell’s machinations. “I agree with Senator Reid when he said the ObamaCare amendment is a cynical amendment. Of course it is. It is empty showmanship,” Cruz added.

This is a bitter fight between the GOP leadership and conservatives and it’s about to get real.

Baby Killer And Spare Parts Wheeler N’ Dealer, Planned Parenthood’s Dr Mary Gatter!!

 Don Surber : Dr. Mary Gatter — the Josef Mengele of abortion — a soulless plague upon the land, making light of aborting babies and selling their parts. Mustela abortionist. Pray for her.t

Ah, the good Dr. Gatter. Watching the video of her in action, dickering on prices and than demurring from making a final deal, you know, ‘until we see what others are getting’ and realizing that your tax dollars are funding this is a unique sensation. We truly are becoming the abettors of Moloch, and moving towards damnation. And why not? After all, we elected (and re-elected, apparently) a president who fought tooth and nail against legislation that would have mandated physicians like Dr. Gatter to provide medical care to babies that survived an abortion rather than simply allowing the unwanted arrivals to die from neglect.

When indecency leads, the weak follow, because it’s convenient.

I personally would pray more for America than for the likes of Dr. Gatter, but perhaps that’s just me. To legally allow a 20-week-old healthy child with a fully developed nervous system to feel the pain of being ripped from the womb as its limbs are crushed when there is no health issue involved but simply convenience – and profit – is bad enough, but to force everyone to subsidize it..that’s in a whole different category.

At present, The Center for Medical Progress, the group that released the video of Dr. Gatter has been subjected to lawfare.

They’ve been hit with a lawsuit by a company called StemExpress who profits from the traffic with Planned Parenthood in body parts, and a temporary restraining order was issued by the Los Angeles Superior Court preventing them from releasing any more videos until a hearing is held on August 19th.

The Center for Medical Progress’s leader David Daleiden,told FOX News’s Sean Hannity that there are twelve investigative videos in all:

“Planned Parenthood is getting increasingly desperate to distract from the issue of how they sell the body parts of the babies that they abort,” Daleiden explained. “So, they’re going to be making increasingly outlandish claims about myself, personal attacks against me and really outrageous, fictitious statements about The Center for Medical Progress, in order to avoid addressing that real issue.”

Dr. Gatter is not here with us tonight of course. Her Weasel will be shipped to her offices…as soon as the blood red paint I spattered it with dries.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
