A Note About Obama's Birth Certificate

One of the interesting things about Obama's birth certificate is the designation "African" for the race of Obama Sr. Obama's birth certificate declares that Obama's father's race is "African" and his mother's as "Caucasian". I was kind of surprised that the "race" of the child was not noted but since I haven't seen birth certificates from that time I'll suppose they didn't keep that kind of records (at least in Hawaii).

It got me to thinking of a story that I believe Malcolm X would tell about an African diplomat going to a segregated restaurant and getting to sit in the white section because he "was not a Negro". Apparently the distinguishing feature being the head wrap this diplomat wore. But the certificate does shed a bit of light on the craziness of the American racial classification system. How is Obama's father NOT a Negro? Strictly speaking, Negro is spanish for black and is a reference to any African person with the features of Obama Sr. Did the American social system believe that there was a Negro race and also an African race? If so how exactly did that work? What was the science behind it? At what point did a person stop being an African and start being a Negro? Is it possible to be a Half Negro and Half African?

A cursory glance at American history shows that Africans themselves in Early America thought of themselves as Africans. Evidence being the African-Methodist Episcopal churches, The various "African Lodges" and other community organizations which often prominently announced their African origins. Even Africans who had immersed themselves in English society still considered themselves "African".

If the case was that Obama Sr's nation of birth was the deciding factor, why not designate him a "Kenyan"? It would be interesting to see how black people from the Caribbean were labelled on birth certificates. Strictly speaking they couldn't be "American Negroes" and they couldn't be "Africans" so exactly what racial designation would they have been given? Of course the very fact that one can read the title "American Negro" is testament to the idea that Negro really wasn't a special designation for Slave Trade Africans on the North American continent(tm).

Of course we are also left to ask this question: If Obama Sr. had married a down south woman with no known white ancestry and had a child with her, how would the birth certificate had read? African and Negro? And we would have to ask that given the child would be indistinguishable from two "American Negroes" with no known white ancestors, why should Obama Sr. be designated African and the hypothetical mother not be? Genetically they would both be Africans. By ancestry they would both be Africans. Furthermore, since that child would be indistinguishable from two "Africans" the same question applies: Would that child be considered African or Negro?

All of this to say that it is clear that the historical and current American social system of race makes no sense whatsoever and is really about designating and protecting whiteness (One Drop Rulism) than it is about phylogeny.

Big Bad Ghaddafi

Dissident Voice has an excellent piece discussing some of Ghaddafi's activities in Africa. As I've said to other people, I'm not saying Ghaddafi is a saint, but I know enough to not believe everything that comes out of 'official' channels. So how many of you knew about the following:

It began in 1992, when 45 African nations established RASCOM (Regional African Satellite Communication Organization) so that Africa would have its own satellite and slash communication costs in the continent. This was a time when phone calls to and from Africa were the most expensive in the world because of the annual US$500 million fee pocketed by Europe for the use of its satellites like Intelsat for phone conversations, including those within the same country.

An African satellite only cost a onetime payment of US$400 million and the continent no longer had to pay a US$500 million annual lease. Which banker wouldn’t finance such a project? But the problem remained – how can slaves,
seeking to free themselves from their master’s exploitation ask the master’s help to achieve that freedom? Not surprisingly, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the USA, Europe only made vague promises for 14 years. Gaddafi put an end to these futile pleas to the western ‘benefactors’ with their exorbitant interest rates. The Libyan guide put US$300 million on the table; the African Development Bank added US$50 million more and the West African Development Bank a further US$27 million – and that’s how Africa got its first communications satellite on 26 December 2007.

China and Russia followed suit and shared their technology and helped launch satellites for South Africa, Nigeria, Angola, Algeria and a second African satellite was launched in July 2010. The first totally indigenously built satellite and manufactured on African soil, in Algeria, is set for 2020. This satellite is aimed at competing with the best in the world, but at ten times less the cost, a real challenge.

This is how a symbolic gesture of a mere US$300 million changed the life of an entire continent. Gaddafi’s Libya cost the West, not just depriving it of US$500 million per year but the billions of dollars in debt and interest that the initial loan would generate for years to come and in an exponential manner, thereby helping maintain an occult system in order to plunder the continent.


Interestin indeed.

Excerpt from Black Male Passivity from the Isis Papers (Written 1974)

I offer the below written 33 years ago. What is absolutely striking looking at this with the life experiences I have had is how relevant most of what was written then is today. Also striking is the "progression" of some of the issues brought up by Dr. Welsing in terms of black male alienation, the increasing number of black women who ascribe to white female liberation (as described by Welsing which can be debated I'm sure) either consciously or subconsciously and the attitudes of many black men who are now of age (I was 3 when this was written). I think that there ought to be an Isis Papers convention to re-look at this book 30+ years later.




The white female's liberation movement is another disturbing threat to the white male's sense of power and masculinity, helping push him to a weakened and homosexual stance. However. white females are reacting to the oppression imposed on them by white males. Feeling inferior to "non-white" males and females, the white male said to the white female, "well, at least I am going to be superior to you." The white female reaction in the form of women's liberation is contributing further to white male/female alienation, pushing white males further into the homosexual position and incidentally, pushing white females in that direction also.



The long-standing white male/female alienation in the white family has pushed the white female, perhaps unconsciously , to mold her sons to be more like herself than like their father. Thus she creates a female with a penis. Additionally, she proceeds to fight back at the male and finally achieves, symbolically, a penis for herself-resolving the white female's penis envy complex, a compensation for her sense of inferiority imposed by men. In a similar way, she fights back at the white male when she captures a Black male's penis and taunts the white male, who believes "her" black penis is stronger than his own....



Under the white supremacy slavery system, the identity of "sex machines" was imposed upon black males, especially as many hands were needed in the fields for toil and labor. The many babies that were produced gave Black males their most open avenue for at least a limited sense of manhood. Presently, with birth control pills and with the pressure for population-zero for all non-whites, this major ego-support also has been taken away. Without jobs, income, power or even babies, there is no proof of sexual functioning. When this reality is coupled with the awareness that many women can receive more from a welfare check than they can from their male partners, the reasons for women respecting men and staying with them steadily decline, and Black male/female alienation increases.



Recent statistics reveal that today (1974), 34% of Black families are headed by females as compared to 10% of white families, and this figure is increasing each year....



As black males and females become more and more alienated, as our current rate of separation and divorce indicate, and as Black females are being left to rear Black male children alone, the alienation, hate and disgust felt towards adult males are visited upon their sons subtly. A female alienated from males is hard pressed to reinforce patterns of conduct in a male child that remind her of unhappiness and pain. She in much more inclined to say "There you go looking and acting like that no good nigger father of yours." The Black female teacher at school who also may be experiencing alienation from her Black man, if not inclined to make the same statement, in such a direct manner, only says it more subtly, says nothing, or simply acts out her hate, disgust and distrust of Black males, achieving the same end result....



In childhood, male children learn -whether at home or at school -that they can make mothers and female teachers happy (and they will shower you with smiles and affection) when they act like "females" rather than like boys.



The dearth of adult Black males in the homes, schools and neighborhoods leaves Black male children no alternative models. Blindly they seek out one another as role models, and in their blindness end up in trouble....



One ex prisoner patient told me: It is easier to endure life on the inside than to try to put up with the pressures of being a man, a husband and a father in the street."...The intent of racism programming had been achieved: "Give up trying to be a Black man. Why not be a woman?"



Many Black males have answered unconsciously, "why not!" The braided and curled hair, the earring and bracelets, the midriff tops, the cinch waisted pants, the flowered underwear, the high heeled shoes with platforms and the pocketbooks are all behaviors to the above. They say in loud and clear language: "White man, I will never come after you . I cannot run in my high heels [or sagging pants-Mr Tunj]- you know that. And I may mess up my hair." The white-run clothing industry is all too pleased to provide the costumes of feminine disguise for Black male escape...



Television, which has become an important programmer of behavior in this social system and its culture, plays a further role in alienating Black males (especially children) from Black manhood. Flip Wilson, the highest paid Black male on television maintains his high rating by dressing in great detail as a tough and coarse Black female. One of my seven-year old Black male patients told me, "My Mommy liked Geraldine and I think Geraldine is cute". "Good Times" [a show I never cared for -Mr Tunji] the latest media fare for indoctrinating the Black oppressed, shows a pitiful adult Black male who never can seem to find an adequate job and a Black adolescent male who is a criminal shoplifter and a complete clown. All of this takes place in the presence of a strong and powerful Black female, who periodically drops down on her knees to pray to a white Jesus whose miracles save the situation.These weekly insults to Black manhood that we have been programmed to believe are entertainment and not direct racist warfare, further reinforce, perhaps in the unconscious thinking of Black people, a loss of respect for Black manhood while carrying that loss to ever deeper levels. One 12 year old Black male summer it up in this manner when I questioned him about working hard and studying in school: "No, I do not want to study so I can help Black people. If you try to help Black people, you will be killed. Look at Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and George Jackson. I don't want to die."

Banking or Revolution?

I saw this earlier on FaceBook but could not place a source. Finally have found it so here it is:

It seems that the rebels might actually be under the overall supervision of the international banking industry, rather than the oil majors. On March 19 they announced the “[d]esignation of the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary policies in Libya and appointment of a Governor to the Central Bank of Libya, with a temporary headquarters in Benghazi.’”

CNBC senior editor John Carneyasked, “Is this the first time a revolutionary group has created a central bank while it is still in the midst of fighting the entrenched political power? It certainly seems to indicate how extraordinarily powerful central bankers have become in our era.”


Has Moqtada Al Sadr created a central bank in Iraq? Nope the US is the one who created a new monetary policy in Iraq after deposing of it's leader. That deposed leader is the same one who posed a direct threat to Dollar Dominance (tm) when he sought to sell Iraqi oil in Euros rather than dollars. Why do I mention that? Read on:

“According to a Russian article titled “Bombing of Lybia – Punishment for Ghaddafi for His Attempt to Refuse US Dollar,” Gadaffi made a similarly bold move: he initiated a movement to refuse the dollar and the euro, and called on Arab and African nations to use a new currency instead, the gold dinar. Gadaffi suggested establishing a united African continent, with its 200 million people using this single currency. During the past year, the idea was approved by many Arab countries and most African countries. The only opponents were the Republic of South Africa and the head of the League of Arab States. The initiative was viewed negatively by the USA and the European Union, with French president Nicolas Sarkozy calling Libya a threat to the financial security of mankind; but Gaddafi was not swayed and continued his push for the creation of a united Africa.

“And that brings us back to the puzzle of the Libyan central bank. In an article posted on the Market Oracle, Eric Encina observed: ‘One seldom mentioned fact by western politicians and media pundits: the Central Bank of Libya is 100% State Owned. . . . Currently, the Libyan government creates its own money, the Libyan Dinar, through the facilities of its own central bank. Few can argue that Libya is a sovereign nation with its own great resources, able to sustain its own economic destiny. One major problem for globalist banking cartels is that in order to do business with Libya, they must go through the Libyan Central Bank and its national currency, a place where they have absolutely zero dominion or power-broking ability. Hence, taking down the Central Bank of Libya (CBL) may not appear in the speeches of Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy but this is certainly at the top of the globalist agenda for absorbing Libya into its hive of compliant nations.’”


Now we start to see the real deal here. But if you want to still believe that this is about civilians, you go right ahead.

How It's Done

Paul Craig Roberts breaks it down again:

One traditional means by which the US influences and controls a country is by training its military and government officers. The program is called International Military and Education Training (IMET). AFRICOM reports that “in 2009 approximately 900 military and civilian students from 44 African countries received education and training in the United States or their own countries. Many officers and enlisted IMET graduates go on to fill key positions in their militaries and governments.”
