THE WORLD IS OUTRAGED

TRUMP’S CRUDE COMMENTS DIMINISH U.S., EMPOWERS CHINA

This opinion was published in the Fresno Bee. Click here to read it in The Bee.  Once again insensitive comments attributed to President Donald Trump have inflamed the world. According to Washington Post, Trump is reported to have asked “why are we having these people from shithole countries come here?” As an African immigrant, and as many people did, I found Trump’s comments to be racist and insulting but I was not surprised at all. His attitude toward minorities and women has always been rude, crude, and ignorant. Trump has denied making the racist comments, but his denials are undermined by his past history of making racists remarks against minorities and his reputation as a devoted liar. Trump’s words sparkedRead More


HIS LEGACY ENDURES 50 YEARS AFTER DEATH

FRESNANS MARK MLK DAY WITH A MESSAGE OF UNITY

On a chilly Monday morning, several hundreds of Fresnans marched to mark the 50th Anniversary since the assassination of Civil Rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Marchers peacefully walked several blocks in downtown Fresno and congregated at the City Hall, where they listened to speeches by various leaders including Fresno District 3 Councilman Oliver Baines, Congressman Jim Costa, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer, Fresno District 1 Councilwoman Esmeralda Soria, among others. The speakers decried the general lack of civility in the current political environment and called for citizens not to despair and be active in seeking better governance. Costa urged the people to follow Dr. King’s footsteps and speak up against injustice. “Dr. King inspired in all of usRead More


THERE IS NO STRATEGY, HE'S JUST WINGING IT AND LIVES ARE AT STAKE

FINALLY A GOP SENATOR STICKS IT TO TRUMP

Senator Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) reminds me of a man in crowded club who dares to be the first on the dance floor and he dances along, with not a slight care if anybody joins. He is ready to be the lone nut. It’s surprising that he’s a Republican because Republicans nowadays are known for their lack of courage in leadership and enabling the most incompetent person to ever rise to the US presidency. Republicans, Corker included, have put party ahead of country but hopefully for Corker, the hypnosis he’s been under to support Trump has worn off and he will not turn back to Trumpian sycophancy. In the Twitter war between President Donald Trump and Corker, Trump, the self-proclaimed masterRead More


PEACEFUL ELECTIONS BUT FEW TROUBLE SPOTS / PRISONERS VOTE FOR FIRST TIME EVER

IT’S A REMATCH FOR UHURU AND RAILA AS KENYANS GO TO THE POLLS

KTN Carol Nderi Reports

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his arch rival and NASA Coalition flag-bearer Raila Odinga have a date with destiny today as Kenyan go to the polls to weigh in whether to reward Kenyatta with a second five-year term or Kenyans will give Odinga, a 4-time unsuccessful presidential candidate, a go at the highest seat on the land. The Kenyan General Elections is a gigantic exercise with almost 15,000 candidates vying for less than 2000 seats in all levels of government, the highest being the presidential contest between Kenyatta and Odinga, sons of Kenyan founding fathers first President Jomo Kenyatta and first Vice President Jaramogi Oginga Odinga. The election is the most expensive in Kenyan history costing almost Ksh 50 billion ($0.5Read More


SANDERS: TRUMP DID NOT WIN THE ELECTION, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOST THE ELECTION

THE BERNIE REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) spoke passionately to a crowd of more than five thousand supporters gathered in Chicago for the first People’s Summit Organized by the Sanders Institute. Sanders touched on various issues about social justice including building affordable housing for Americans, increasing minimum wage to $15 an hour, guaranteeing health care as a right and not a privilege. He said the goal should be to provide healthcare for all and not just allow insurance companies to use health care as a vehicle to reap massive profits. He praised the nurses, members of the Nurses National Union, for their support and effort to push for single payer healthcare system in California. He noted the need for comprehensive immigration reform andRead More


DID PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ATTEMPT TO OBSTRUCT FBI INVESTIGATION INTO MICHAEL FLYNN?

JAMES COMEY’S STATEMENT FOR SENATE SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE AND RUSSIA INVESTIGATION

The following is a statement released by former FBI Director James Comey regarding his multiple interactions with President Donald Trump. The written testimony reveals, in Comey’s voice, an interaction that shows Trump as desperate to establish a master-servant relationship with the former FBI Director by asking Comey to provide him with loyalty. It is bizarre for the president to request loyalty from a law enforcement officer and their position requires independence of thought and cannot be construed as beholding to politicians. Perhaps the most disturbing part of the testimony is when Trump, according to Comey’s statement, requested him to drop the FBI investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. After clearing the room so he is alone with Comey,Read More


SO MUCH FOR SECURITY IN THE WINTER WHITE HOUSE

PROPUBLICA: Any Half-Decent Hacker Could Break Into Mar-a-Lago

Two weeks ago, on a sparkling spring morning, we went trawling along Florida’s coastal waterway. But not for fish. We parked a 17-foot motor boat in a lagoon about 800 feet from the back lawn of The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach and pointed a 2-foot wireless antenna that resembled a potato gun toward the club. Within a minute, we spotted three weakly encrypted Wi-Fi networks. We could have hacked them in less than five minutes, but we refrained. A few days later, we drove through the grounds of the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, with the same antenna and aimed it at the clubhouse. We identified two open Wi-Fi networks that anyone could join without aRead More


THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL. TALKS OF IMPEACHMENT

DONALD TRUMP’S 120 DAYS OF SCANDALS, LIES, INCOMPETENCE AND MEANNESS

If Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe first 120 days were anything like President Donald Trump’s first 120 days as US president, the world would understand. But Trump is not the president of Zimbabwe, he is the president of United States, the most powerful nation in the world. Well, as of today, May, 16, 2017, Trump is not quite yet at his 120th day mark, but it doesn’t hurt to round it off. He will get there Saturday and these are about to be his longest 3 days. Jeb Bush predicted if elected, Donald Trump would be a chaos president. He was right, but it was not hard to see Trump taking this path and making Bush sound like a prophet. EverythingRead More


DONALD TRUMP SUFFERS AN EPIC, PUBLIC, SPECTACULAR, COLOSSAL FAILURE

THE HURT OF THE DEAL

Today was a big win. Not for President Donald Trump. It was a big win for former President Barack Obama. Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare survived its biggest onslaught yet when House Republicans, who have railed against Obamacare for 7 years could not come to a consensus to repeal and replace a law they hate with a passion. This was a big defeat for Trump, the self-proclaimed great dealmaker, who pushed so hard and even gave Republicans legislators an ultimatum to pass the law or else. The ultimatum failed spectacularly because Speaker Paul Ryan was forced to pull the vote after a rebellion within Republican ranks doomed the bill and effectively denied Trump a much needed enemiesRead More


WAS THIS AN EFFORT TO VALIDATE TRUMP'S BOGUS WIRETAP CLAIMS?

CONGRESSMAN NUNES SHOULD STEP ASIDE; BRING SPECIAL PROSECUTOR

The genius of the American political system is the separation of powers among three co-equal arms of the government– executive / President, White House. Legislature; House of Representatives and Senate (Congress) and Judiciary, the Courts. The three arms act as a check for each other to prevent one side from overreaching, hence the term checks and balances. It is because of these checks and balances that while the president wields veto power over legislation he does not agree with, Congress carries the powers to make laws and at the same time carries a veto override power whenever they feel the president’s veto is not appropriate. And in case of legal disagreement between the executive and legislature, or with aggrieved citizensRead More
