What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right

Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town.  Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health.  That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, “a fecalized environment.”

In plain English: s— is everywhere.  People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water.  He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water.  Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country.  Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral.  The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see.

I have seen.  I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant things are not true.

Senegal was not a hellhole.  Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures’ terms.  But they are not our terms.  The excrement is the least of it.  Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.

Condemned To Repeat History

Posted By Michael Youssef On 8:46 PM 03/16/2017 In | 

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  Islam didn’t spread the way Christianity spread — by free-will evangelistic appeal. Islam spread by the sword. It advanced as Islamic warriors conquered the Middle East, North Africa, and parts of Europe. The history of Islam is a history of bloody struggle.


In June 2016, the Presbyterian Church USA held its 222nd General Assembly in Portland, Oregon. A Muslim community leader gave the invocation, praying, “Lead us on the straight path — the path of all the prophets: Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad.”

This prayer was drawn from the Fatihah, the opening chapter of the Koran: “Show us the straight path, the path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the [path] of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.”

Muslims understand “those who earn Thine anger” to be the Jews and “those who go astray” to be Christians. The Presbyterians thought this was a prayer for interfaith understanding, but it was actually a veiled insult to the Christian audience.

Now, I draw a clear distinction between most Muslims and the radicalized, political Muslims known as Islamists. I was born in the Middle East, and I have many dear friends and acquaintances who embrace Islam. I don’t want anyone to misunderstand my genuine affection and appreciation for Muslim people.

But we need to understand the history of the Islamist movement. Islam was founded in the seventh century by Muhammad with a goal of an Islamic world empire. Islam expanded rapidly under Umar ibn al-Khattab, Muhammad’s chief disciple and the second caliph. Umar conquered most of the Byzantine Empire and all of Persia within a few years.

This is a “must read” article as there is information  about the Clintons and their involvement in the Globalism movement in this article that you will not read in other articles. 

Spy Scandals, Globalism and the Betrayal of America

Our top educators like to think that worthwhile social movements only come from the left, such as Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter. But the movement backing Donald J. Trump for president rejects most of what the left is preaching. These people see America losing its greatness, unique identity and national sovereignty. Hillary Clinton uses the campaign slogan “Stronger Together,” which has a patriotic appeal. But she also termed half of Trump’s supporters “deplorable” and “irredeemable.” She prefers the artificial George Soros-funded “social movements” that back her campaign.
By any objective measure, it can be argued that the stench of globalism is starting to affect everything, even perceptions of our founding documents. It may also invite foreign penetration into the highest levels of our government.
Visitors to Independence Hall in Philadelphia are surprised to learn that the site of the adoption of our Declaration of Independence is now a World Heritage Site designated by the United Nations. A big plaque with the designation faces you after you get a lecture from the U.S. Park Service and prepare to enter the historic building. Referring to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States, the United Nations declares, “The universal principles of freedom and democracy set forth in these documents are of fundamental importance to American history and have also had a profound impact on law-makers around the world.” These are nice thoughts. But the U.N. is hardly a tribute to freedom and democracy. Ordinary patriotic Americans don’t like the idea of the corrupt United Nations claiming some form of jurisdiction over Independence Hall.
What’s more, visitors to the Liberty Bell see a big picture of Nelson Mandela raising a clenched fist salute. The Mandela quotation that the Liberty Bell is “a very significant symbol for the entire democratic world” is featured next to the photograph. These, too, are nice thoughts. But while Mandela presided over a democratic transition that turned the whites out of power in South Africa, revelations after his death proved that he was a secret member of the South African Communist Party. He had concealed his true motives and allegiances from those who elected him. South Africa is a member of the Russian orbit of nations, known as BRICS, and some of the remaining whites are fleeing.
The “Citizenship in the World” merit badge is now required for the highest rank in Scouting, Eagle Scout, with one of the requirements being, “Explain what citizenship in the world means to you and what you think it takes to be a good world citizen.”

Clinton Cash, is a feature documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book that the New York Times hailed as “The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle.”

Clinton Cash investigates how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with over $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as US Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors

Hillary’s ‘ownership’ of Libya

The North African nation is no longer a place to boast about

– – Thursday, September 3, 2015William C. Triplett II is a former chief Republican counsel to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“This is basically off the top of my head, with a few consultations of my notes. but it shows [Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s] leadership/ownership/stewardship of this country’s Libya policy from start to finish. — Aug. 21, 2011 email from State Department Director of Policy Planning Jake Sullivan to Cheryl D. Mills, chief of staff to Secretary of State Clinton.

Jake Sullivan has been called to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Friday. He left the State Department with Mrs. Clinton. He is now the chief national security aide for the Clinton campaign. According to Politico, the Clinton campaign has told a “group of ‘Hillblazers’ that it would soon start getting regular policy briefings via conference calls with one of Clinton’s closest policy aides, Jake Sullivan.” He is the inside-the-Beltway odds-on favorite to be national security adviser if Mrs. Clinton is elected president in 2016.

Leaving aside Mr. Sullivan’s enthusiasm for his boss in 2011, what is the Libya today of which Mrs. Clinton would have total “leadership/ownership/stewardship,” if she were to claim possession?

The story begins on June 4, 2009, with President Obama’s speech at Cairo University, which the White House website still calls “A New Beginning.” In that time frame, President Obama was riding high in the polls, he had huge Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, and by October it would be announced that he had been selected to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Under these circumstances, it would be hard for anyone to keep his feet on the ground.

While not havens of human rights virtue, in June 2009 the Middle East and North Africa was more or less stable. al Qaeda had been defeated in Iraq. Energetic local governments had marginalized most Muslim extremist organizations. Col. Moammar Gadhafi had seen the light and was cooperating with the United States on control of extremists and weapons of mass destruction proliferation. Religious minorities, especially Christians, were protected. Antiquities were respected as part of the region’s cultural heritage. There were no civil wars, no mass killings, no widespread destruction of homes, no new waves of refugees. There was at least some measure of hope for millions of people.

All of that changed after President Obama’s Cairo speech. The Egyptian government was overthrown and a Muslim Brotherhood regime installed, lasting until the Egyptian people demanded that the army restore order. Withdrawing U.S. forces from Iraq resulted in a vacuum that the Islamic State was happy to fill. A demand that “Assad must go” led to civil war, with ISIS now in the suburbs of Damascus. Christians and other religious minorities who had remained in the region for more than a thousand years are now under intense persecution — killed, enslaved, and houses of worship destroyed. Waves of refugees are pouring into Europe. Hundreds of thousands of people from Iraq to North Africa have been killed. More lost their homes and wander aimlessly in their own countries.


And then there is Libya. As Mr. Sullivan was writing in August 2011, the country was descending into chaos. By October, Gadhafi was dead and by September 2012 so, too, were the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

Libya today is a failed state. The 2006 census of Libya listed the population at 6.6 million people. About 9 percent of the population, 550,000 Libyans, are “internally displaced,” which is the nice way of saying they have lost their homes and are wandering the country seeking help where they can find it. In U.S. terms that would be about the equivalent of something in excess of 30 million Americans losing their homes. There are no reliable estimates of how many Libyans have been killed, maimed or made orphans since Mr. Sullivan’s August 2011 email.

With rampant lawlessness in the country, the human wolves have thrived, putting desperate refugees by the hundreds into overcrowded and unseaworthy boats. The Libyan Red Crescent patrols the beaches and buries the bodies by the dozens that wash ashore.

ISIS has made Libya its North African headquarters. Tunisian radicals trained in Libya have made two attacks on tourists in Tunis that killed more than 60 people. Gadhafi’s depots of conventional arms have been looted and the contents distributed widely. Out of total despair, Libyan politicians have begged the Arab League to send warplanes to bomb their own country.

A member of Congress can ask any question he or she likes. Perhaps the Benghazi Committee could revisit August 2011 and ask Mr. Sullivan why he thought Mrs. Clinton had total “leadership/ownership/stewardship” of Libya policy. Further, he could be asked whether, in the light of the current situation in Libya, her “stewardship” has been positive or negative for the people of Libya?

EBOLA VIRUS – Rhesus Monkeys Aerosolized by Virus

Lethal experimental infections of rhesus monkeys by

aerosolized Ebola virus.

The potential of aerogenic infection by Ebola virus was established by using a head-only exposure aerosol system. Virus-containing droplets of 0.8-1.2 microns were generated and administered into the respiratory tract of rhesus monkeys via inhalation. Inhalation of viral doses as low as 400 plaque-forming units of virus caused a rapidly fatal disease in 4-5 days. The illness was clinically identical to that reported for parenteral virus inoculation, except for the occurrence of subcutaneous and venipuncture site bleeding and serosanguineous nasal discharge. Immunocytochemistry revealed cell-associated Ebola virus antigens present in airway epithelium, alveolar pneumocytes, and macrophages in the lung and pulmonary lymph nodes; extracellular antigen was present on mucosal surfaces of the nose, oropharynx and airways. Aggregates of characteristic filamentous virus were present within type I pneumocytes, macrophages, and air spaces of the lung by electron microscopy. Demonstration of fatal aerosol transmission of this virus in monkeys reinforces the importance of taking appropriate precautions to prevent its potential aerosol transmission to humans.
