I Hate to Say I Told You So, But…

9 12 2017

Well, that didn’t take too long. Zimbabwe Economic Development Minister Patrick Chinamasa presented his 2018 National Budget amid much fanfare and adulation by foreign press outlets.

It seems that what I feared in the article “Uganda Begs for Indian Investment in Lucrative Mining and Tourism Sectors” is coming into view. I will highlight a few details from the article published by the Herald of Zimbabwe, then contrast that with an article from Bloomberg News (a journal dedicated to informing the Eurasian investment class about investment conditions and opportunities), and the above video from CGTN. The latter is the Chinese international news outlet which has a bureau in nearly every country on the Afrikan continent informing Chinese investors of economic and social conditions in the countries they have targeted for colonization. Please note that to date, there is not one major news media outlet that covers general news concerning the Afrikan continent except for CGTN, and a few individual shows on western media channels like CNN, BBC, and France 24. To my knowledge, an all Afrikan, international news network owned by Afrikans and designed to inform Afrikan people has not yet been realized. I kindly ask the readers to please correct me if I am incorrect on this point.

In the Herald article and the CGTN news video, the writer quotes extensively from Chinamasa who uses a lot of academic vernacular to communicate the intentions and policies of the budget. It is my view that he does so for two reasons. One to confound lay persons who might take an interest in what he is saying, and two, to directly communicate to foreign investors in the lingo that they understand—-because they created it! Chinamasa starts by claiming that the new government intends to focus on bringing back funds which were absconded by business officials to foreign bank accounts and money which was “externalized” through illicit monetary transactions. This is all being done to “benefit the general public” who pay higher fees and costs due to such activity. The list of foci in the budget are printed below. Notice the final highlight in the budget!

Highlights

  • Workers above 65 years of age to be retired.
  • Recruitment frozen.
  • Voluntary retirement scheme offered.
  • Cuts in staff benefits loom.
  • Redundant officers to be retired.
  • Rationalisation of youth officers. 
  • 528 unqualified Public Service members to go.
  • First class air travel for most Govt officers banned.
  • Vehicle scheme for senior Govt officials reviewed.
  • Indigenisation law revised.  ⇐**

In addition, there are plans afoot to re-introduce a Zimbabwean currency. Even though Mugabe had these plans as well, they were foiled due to economic sanctions which devalued the Zimbabwe dollar to the point of worthlessness. This quote from the newspaper “New Zimbabwe” via allafrica.com is very informative.

“One thing for certain which touched President’s (Mnangagwa) heart was the issue of re- introducing our own currency; that matter has generated a lot of interest amongst investors from South Africa, China even in the European Union who want to see this country progressing.

“President Mnangagwa is being accepted across the world with various countries pledging to work and assist the country to retain to its former glory.

BINGO! If there is any other clear indication that what happened in November was a coup to oust Mugabe and bring in leadership who would not only be friendly to non-Afrikan domination of the Zimbabwe economy, but privilege their command and control of the economy, it is in the above quotation.

With that said, Economic Minister Chinamasa further stated that he wants to speed up digitalization of financial services to make it “difficult for people to engage in dishonest and corrupt practices” Yeah, OK, I believe that because the 2008 financial meltdown in the USA, which was brought about by dishonest and corrupt practices, was really initiated by the fact that full digitalization of the US economy had not yet occurred. SMH. If anything, digitization makes it more efficient for foreigners to steal from the Zimbabwe economy because at present they have the software, technology, and infrastructure to facilitate and implement digitization. Moreover, the nominally “independent” SWIFT code system which is tacitly controlled through international institutions of the USA and EU is the mechanism by which sanctions are placed on countries which prevents them from trading in international currency, namely the US dollar which is needed to purchase goods on the international market most notably oil. The Chinese have been constructing their own “alternative” system for years now. It is called the CIPS “Chinese International Payment System” and they have been in negotiations with the Russians to implement it which was supposed to happen in 2015, but has not yet been widely adopted. However, with this new announcement by Zimbabwe, this could be just the opportunity the Chinese need to test their system on the Afrikan continent.

Another telling revelation in the article states that across all government agencies, the quality of services needs to be more facilitative and devoid of corrupt practices. This is because…

Zimbabwe competes with its regional neighbours for investment, business and tourism…

That is to say, Afrikans are in competition with other Afrikans for the attention of Eurasians, rather than in cooperation with each other to interconnect their economies and build strong industries which would primarily serve Afrikan businesses, consumers, and industrial projects. Let it not be said that European industries don’t compete also. For example, the European aeronautical company Airbus is in competition with the USA based Boeing company to sell aircraft and weapons systems to developing nations. However, the profits are recycled into the western economies to fund organizations like NATO and the UN to help white hegemony police the world and ensure that countries like Zimbabwe remain stagnant.

The new budget also proposes centralization of revenue instead of each ministry collecting revenue to fund its own budgets. This could be a good thing if the purpose is to create a strong and well-funded system to finance the project for Zimbabwean power, and hence Afrikan power. But it is not a welcome development if centralization is seen as a means to more comfortably interface with Eurasian institutions to more effectively control (and arrest) the development of a strong sub-continental Afrikan power state. Dr. Amos Wilson said in his lecture “The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness” that:

“…it is not the mode of thinking (or organization) that is the problem, it is for what you use the thinking that presents the problem. If you use the thinking (or organization) for the destruction of Afrikan people, or use it such that it does not empower Afrikan people, then you are misusing it.”

According to the article in the Herald, A National Prosecuting Authority will also be established to “fight corruption”. This agency will be

“…required to publish reports once every quarter giving statistics on the: number of arrests made; number of successful prosecutions or convictions; and value of money or property recovered, as a result of their interventions”.

My question is, does this extend to non-Afrikans too? Will Chinese, European, Indian, Lebanese, and Arab businessmen and women be arrested when charged with corruption and convicted to long prison sentences and/or deported never to return if found guilty of these crimes and transgressions? It is one thing to punish relatively powerless Afrikan people for breaking the law, but it is a total other thing to let it be known that non-Afrikans will be herded into incarceration facilities and severely punished for their crimes too. In order to do this, crimes which harm the building of an Afrikan power state will have to be defined and codified, and then if people are found to be in violation, they must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Just putting small-scale civil servants in jail for demanding payoffs for carrying out their official duties is not enough. What about the crimes of expropriating resources, lack of skills transfer, and lack of appointing capable Afrikan men and woman to be the managing directors, chairpersons, and leaders of major industries, businesses, and other institutions in Zimbabwe? I have personally seen mediocre white people occupying leadership positions in many institutions located in Afrikan nations simply because they are white. These people have no superior skills and have not demonstrated any major improvements to the socio-economic life of Afrikans.  Most of them are there because they could not get a job in the west, so they are cast off to Afrika to serve as the “friendly white face” over which the locals drool in hopes of having the inbred mutant albino (IMA) facilitate their journey to the west or go into a ramshackle business with them as the sponsor and major partner. I have seen this first hand! Whites with cars, nice houses, and well-paying jobs, but are total losers and living the good life in Afrika, while Afrikan youth, with a similar education and skill set, can barely find a job.

This contradiction in focus on who is living a lifestyle beyond their means is elucidated in the last point from the 2018 budget mentioned in the Herald article. Specifically, the new policy of “life style audits of all public office holders to ensure that they are commensurate with their level of income”. How about the same type of audits for these foreign NGO employees in addition to skills audits to ensure they are not just lowly expatriates living a lavish life under the guise of “helping Afrikans develop”. If Afrikan officials must be scrutinized for their daily expenses, how about the same for these foreigners living on the teat of the western, neo-hippie, tree-hugging policy of “helping the third world”. The so-called “third world” has been developing for 60+ years now. Isn’t it time to declare that these “good white people” have failed?

 

Now, let’s look at the Bloomberg article, entitled “Zimbabwe to Cut Spending, Relax Its Black Ownership Laws”.

The top two bullet points in the article were:

  • Majority black-ownership law confined to platinum, diamonds
  • Country seeks to boost tax revenue to narrow budget deficit

The first statement just beneath those bullet points was:

Zimbabwe will trim spending and increase tax revenue next year and relax laws that require black citizens hold majority stakes in companies as it looks to restore confidence and boost economic growth, Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa said.

My questions are, to restore whose confidence? Boost what kind of economic growth? Since this is a European Jew owned periodical, we know that the confidence to be restored will be Europeans and Eurasians in general. The economic growth will likely be for multinational corporations and investors with brokerage accounts in the major investment banks of the east and west such Goldman Sachs, Barclay’s, and HSBC.

The Bloomberg article further states that,

The unsatisfactory performance of the economy is being underpinned by declining domestic and foreign investor confidence levels, against the background of policy inconsistencies in an uncertain and uncompetitive business environment,” Chinamasa said.

Who are these domestic and foreign investors specifically? Has there been a survey conducted and published to measure the confidence levels of these groups? Since we know that Mnangagwa has promised to compensate the criminal European farmers from the land that they stole, are these the “domestic investors” of which his Economic Development Minister Chinamasa spoke?

Here in the next passage are blatant lies and misrepresentations printed shamelessly by Bloomberg News:

Former leader Robert Mugabe resigned two weeks ago after an army-led coup ended his 37-year rule in which agricultural output collapsed due to forced repossessions of commercially productive farmland. Zimbabwe abandoned its currency in 2009 due to hyperinflation and the economy has halved in size since 2000.”

So, readers are to believe that simply because land was correctly repossessed by Zimbabweans, the commercial productivity collapsed? That is to say that Afrikan people cannot learn how to farm in the way that the European thieves can. Or more correctly, Afrikan farmers under Mugabe’s rule didn’t simply produce cash crops for export into the European markets. Hence, they collapsed. Also, it was the fault of that notorious international villain who goes by the name of Hyperinflation that “halved the size” of the economy, not the crippling sanctions imposed by the USA and EU which isolated Zimbabwe from participating in markets and banking systems of the west.

It is now readily apparent that the present Zimbabwe administration longs for the days of European expatriate colonialism, and their only problem with Rhodesia was that Ian Smith wanted to operate the government by and for Europeans only and wanted to exclude the Afrikans. This historic error by Smith has now been corrected. So now, the Eurasians can return to devilishly exploiting the land and resources just as long as they give a few well-placed Afrikans a cut of the profits.

The last paragraph is very enlightening as it gives investment advice to readers who do their due diligence to research the companies mentioned.

Zimbabwe holds the world’s biggest platinum reserves after South Africa and also has chrome, gold, iron ore, coal and diamonds. While mining is the largest source of foreign currency, fresh capital dried up under the law forcing foreign, white-owned companies to cede 51 percent of their businesses to black Zimbabweans or the government. (Editorial note: Zimbabweans are Black so my strikethrough was to correct a redundancy) Anglo American Platinum Ltd., Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd., and Sinosteel Corp. are among companies operating there.

You no doubt have noticed that the companies recommended for investment are all Eurasian companies who sell/provide platinum to major defense, automotive, technological, manufacturing and aerospace industries. This will now be done without Afrikan ownership and Afrikan-centered directed policies for local investment to build local industrial capacity and independent manufacturing businesses.

So, we see in clear language the definitive and undeniable focus of the Afrikan political class. In my last post, “Green Shoots in the Black World?” I discussed the necessary caution people should have at hearing Afrikan political leaders engage in “bad Black talk”. It usually is a cover for gaining favor and closer proximity to foreigners. However, one thing is known from hearing leaders engage in such rhetoric, we now have definitive proof that they are aware of the structural and developmental problems that Afrikan nations have and of their solutions. It just so happens that most of them don’t want to pursue the solutions. The main reason for this is to protect their status as international second bananas, third tier technocrats, and fourth rate hucksters. I wish it were different, but for now, this is the situation we are in.

Green Shoots in the Black World?

8 12 2017

One can see the visible discomfort of the French President Emmanuel Macron at having to listen to the Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo outline the long overdue necessities for growth and development in Ghana and on the Afrikan continent in general. My concern is not for the anxiety of Macron, but for the veracity of the words President Nana Akufo spoke. You see, we have heard this “bad Black talk before. I am not discounting the truthfulness of the problems he identified in his speech and his obvious solutions to them which were elucidated by Marcus Garvey and many prior to him, but I am maintaining a healthy skepticism in my willingness to follow behind soaring rhetoric at the expense of hearing clearly stated policies and programs designed to achieve the goals which President Akufo-Addo conveyed in his speech. It was apparent that Nana Akufo spoke with passion and conviction, but so did Robert Mugabe in the video below. In 1997, Mugabe spoke of objectives which parallel Akufo-Addo’s statements, but woefully little was done in the way of actualizing these intentions.

Upon my viewing the Mugabe video, I saw the following comment posted and it sums up my opinions almost exactly:


“I heard this speech before and I agree with it. My only questions are, where were the policies? Where were the programs? Africans in American cooned over Slick Wille, swooned over Obama, hated GW Bush and now hate Trump, but have yet to develop one successful independent policy to secure our political future. We have seen more Black lawyers, pundits, celebrities and politicians carrying water for the DNC and Hollywood, but not one of these individuals or groups has developed anything of note to accept his offer. What was the Doctor of Political Science Condi Rice doing at this point? She was on her knees begging GW Bush for a position. Where were the usual suspects, Oprah, MJ, Bob Johnson, the CBC and others doing? They were running after white people. Unless African-American institutions and individuals stop preaching the mantra “we’re in a global world now” and start acting like it by developing independent political and economic policies which are interfaced with African continental policies and programs…we can forget it!

Furthermore, I have been a member of more than a few African-American organizations and they have woefully narrow goals. Home-schooling, cultural events, and small scale retail sales. We have not done what is necessary to build the corporate structures and governance practices to bring skilled professionals WHO ARE PAID into the fold to plan the strategies we need to take Mugabe up on his offer. We still think that “if you Black, you can join our organization” WRONG! We need people with skills and vision to occupy leadership roles for compensation who can get the job done. Too many organizations just let people in because they have dreads and ‘talk Black’. That won’t get us anywhere”


After stirring speeches are given in front of people like the representatives of white hegemony, Afrikan compatriots, and the world generally (since most everything now is transmitted through international media apparatuses), we then need definitive policy implementation starting with policy prescriptions that have been proposed by several Afrikan thinkers such as Dr. Chinweizu, Dr. Amos Wilson, Amilcar Cabral, Patrice Lumumba, Marcus Garvey and others. This blog serves as one such outlet to communicate Afrikan-centered policies designed to benefit actual Afrikan people on the continent and in the diaspora. I see my role as not dissimilar from IMA (inbred mutant albino) race-patriots like Zbignew Brzezinski or Heinz Kissinger who wrote books, articles, policy papers, and advised bureaucratic administrators and political leaders as to the most effective actions to take to extend the political power of white hegemony. Many of their recommendations have ended in failure and a loss of power for the European Imperial Project, and some were successful in the short term, but at the end of the day, they were valued by the leadership class for their contributions nonetheless. These inbred mutant albinos did not mince words about their goals in their official writings, and we need Afrikan policy officials to show the same allegiance and determination. The time is long past for simply using mere rhetoric to stir the masses, it is now time for unapologetic action and implementation in order to insure our survival and protection from continual enslavement by our historic and current enemies.

 

I consider the book I wrote “ACBN: Afrikan-Centered Biological Nationalism, A Primer” to be similar in relevance to books like “Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power”, “Between Two Ages”, and “The Grand Chessboard”, all written by Brzezinski which outlined the existential problems of power and solutions for the Anglo-American alliance. I consider articles written on this blog and others you can find in my Blogroll section to be commensurate with papers written by Kissinger such as “Peace, Legitimacy, and Equilibrium” (his dissertation) and his numerous op-ed pieces in the New York Times. I am not trying to inflate my ego, but a cursory glance at the literature coming from many so-called Afrikan “thinkers” leaves much to be desired. Even if there are writers creating similar studied works, the results from their adoption by the nation-states of Afrika have yet to be seen.

In addition to creating written works, Kissinger and Brzezinski served on various think tanks and advisory boards as directors and administrators. Are their similar such boards in Afrikan nations? I have traveled to several Afrikan countries and one doesn’t have to look too long or hard until one sees a United Nations outpost or a European Union satellite office. Moreover, there are copious NGOs, and foreign institutes interceding in the process of Afrika forming its own policies and solutions to its own problems. The presence of these organizations distorts the consciousness of Afrikans and they either decide to risk everything to go to Europe or North America to find the “good white person” and job of their dreams, or they develop a mentality that assumes that if they simply beg long and hard enough, someone will take pity on them and just handover the resources that they need and desire to live an enjoyable life. Neither of these solutions are prudent for long term survival and benefit.

So, to conclude, I do wish to work with administrations like Nana Akufo’s if they are sincere, but if this is just a rouse to get Eurasian nations to fork over more resources in an attempt to keep Afrikans on the global plantation, then they can forget it. But, if Afrikan leaders are serious, let us see them implement some of the policies Afrikan-centered scholars have been advocating for the last century. Furthermore, I want to see Afrikan-centered thought instituted in the educational systems so that Afrikans can train and educate Afrikan children up to the high standards that we set for ourselves, and stop seeking “equality” or sameness with our enemies. We need an appropriate education to solve our own problems and not an education in order to make enough money to buy the trinkets that are created and manufactured by foreigners.

Afrika for the Afrikans!

It’s been since time to be about that!





Political Misorientations: Afrikans’ Undying Love for Eurasian People

1 12 2017

Below is an article taken from the online news website Zero Hedge which outlines the neocolonial status of West Afrikan states still under French control. In my continuing series on the political misorientations of Afrikan people, here is proof positive that Afrikans’ undying love of everything white is the second most important factor in why there is not a sub-continental nation-state in Afrika with the geopolitical power of a country like Russia, China, or the USA. (The first problem being IMAs/Whites/Eurasians themselves) Not only are the political class totally beholden to their colonial masters, they are purposefully enriching this Euro-trash despite the fact that they are functionally bankrupt. I have written in other blog posts about how unless Afrikan nations take control of their own monetary policy by instituting their own currency outside of the USA/European controlled system, real economic development will remain a distant possibility. In the article below, what struck me as astonishing is that after France lost its other colonies like Algeria and Vietnam, Afrikans stayed loyal to their colonial oppressors even though other colonies had taken violent and revolutionary action to break free from their control. After the second European Imperialist War (1939-1945), the French colonies of Afrika did little to seize the initiative and separate from a mortally wounded French empire. Instead, the political class, educated in the Sorbonne and other French universities, doubled-down on more French wine, cheese, crepes, and white women. This is the problem which is becoming more apparent by the day as European hegemony falters to the pressures of debt and social disorganization brought on by immigration, decadence, and loss of inner purpose.

In the interview below, Dr. Obadele Kambon discusses the historical war between Eurasians and Afrikan people. He places this in the context of the recent events in Zimbabwe. Dr. Kambon also mentions the fact that the new President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has promised to compensate the demonic European thieves who stole land from Afrikans for the land which Mugabe rightly re-appropriated. I have one question. If it is magnanimous to give money to whites who seized ill-gotten gains and then these properties were returned to the rightful owners, is President Mnangagwa going to call for reparations to be paid to Afrikans for the crimes of the UK, France, the USA and other white nations? Will he put as a condition of compensation to the white farmers, the concomitant payment of reparations to the descendants of Afrikans who were enslaved in the Western hemisphere? This hypocrisy reveals the true nature of the “revolutionary leadership” in Afrikan nations. In my book “ACBN: A Primer“, I mentioned that many of these so-called revolutionaries were only angry that they couldn’t get white wives/husbands and were treated as second-class citizens in the colonial empires even though they had attained a similar degree of education as their Eurasian counterparts. This misguided motivation to change the status-quo has persisted to this day and has foisted complacency on the Afrikan world while other Eurasian nations have been busily developing for the eventual takeover of European hegemony.

 

 

The article below clearly states that the manipulated exchange rates which favored the French colonialists and the Afrikan political class, has eventually impoverished the French working and middle class in the metropole of France, and to a greater degree, the Afrikan farmers and other Afrikan consumers who are not benefiting from the economic deals of Afrikan politicians. This with unregulated immigration has initiated a nativist political movement typified by the National Front in France with many counterparts in other parts of Europe. Similar to the Reconstruction Era in the USA after the US Civil War, whites feel betrayed by their elites whom they see as giving support to an immigrant class of upstarts and carpetbaggers. They purport that these migrants from the Afrikan colonies are being protected by a utopian political-economic ideology, believed by their elites, which disenfranchises the whites and seemingly gives unearned privilege to the non-native born people living in France. Now, I have no sympathy for the plight of Eurasian nations, they are thieves and criminals and deserve their comeuppance. However, so do the Afrikan political class who have sacrificed Afrikan development on the alter of living an imitation of life created in the imagination of the Europeans and other Eurasian peoples.


Paris – The Capital Of West & Central Africa

 Once France was one of “the great powers”, dominating Europe and parts of the world in terms of culture and economy. The country’s demise started after the Second World War, though it still played a key role in the creation of the European Union and the euro, which was to prevent Germany from subjugating the rest of the continent.

However, this strategy has failed and Berlin has become Europe’s capital, with France’s importance ever dwindling.

France’s population is slowly being substituted for by people from Africa. Renaud Camus calls it the “grand replacement”. Paris, once a European, then a global is slowly turning into an African metropolis. If French elites, whose influence in Europe is fading, want to remain a world power, they can only opt for Africa. Qaddafi, the king of the kings, became a threat to France’s interests on the continent. It were not the Americans that pushed for Qaddafi’s replacement but the French elites.

Although the days of colonialism officially came to an end in the 1960s, Paris has not given up its position of a great power on the Dark Continent.

France controls most of the countries in West and sub-Saharan Africa politically, economically and through a strong military presence.

Gendarme without backbone

France’s current zone of influence in Africa is the result of the policies of President Charles de Gaulle, who was unable to come to terms with his defeats in Indochina (1954) and Algeria (1962) and therefore sought to achieve the dominance of France in his former colonies. After de Gaulle, however, other presidents did not refrain from using military force and violence in Africa to defend their interests, on the pretext of protecting human rights and democracy. The French often achieved the opposite, because they made the same mistakes in their military actions as Americans made elsewhere in the world: they supported people who later became their enemies or violated human rights.  For example, it was the regime of Juvenal Habyariman in Rwanda that was supported by Paris: the French supplied Hutu combat groups with weapons, thus contributing to the Tutsi massacre. Hollande, who in Paris and Europe was perceived as a weakling, showed the face of a warrior and sent heavy units and fighter planes to Mali in 2013. This would not have been necessary if French President Sarkozy and the USA had not overthrown Qaddafi. It was Sarkozy that initiated the NATO led airstrikes against Libya. The removal of Colonel Qaddafi gave rise to the creation of the Caliphate with the help of Tuaregs in the north of Niger and Mali. After a few years since the start of the mission in Mali one wonders: has it made Europe safer? Has the flow of migrants been stopped through Sahel countries? Are the Jihadists of African descent a lesser threat in Europe?

The cost of the military action in Mali in 2013 amounted to 650 million euros. Operation Barkhane (as it is called) continues to this day and costs the French budget €500 million per year. Of course, democracy in Mali is a top priority for most Europeans, right?

A total of 9,000 French soldiers are currently stationed in Chad, Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Gabon, the Central African Republic and Djibouti. The growing military presence is intended to support the fight against terrorism and crime, in fact it is about the French elites extending their power to the south, reaching for cheap raw materials and outlet markets.

Common currency – Central African Republic sponsored by Mario Draghi

To preserve power, a sovereign needs not only to have an army but even more so issue a currency. Paris knows about this and uses a currency of its own to preserve its colonial power. It is beneficial for the government and large corporations that it represents: uranium from Niger and Gabon, cocoa from Ivory Coast, peanuts from Senegal, commercial orders for French companies in many different countries of West and Central Africa – some 1,000 French companies operating in francophone Africa generate annual profits of around €52 billion. Such profits would not be possible without the CFA franc. The CFA franc is the official currency in 14 African countries with a total population of 140 million.

Its history can be traced back to the Bretton Woods conference after the Second World War: as in all countries participating in the Bretton Woods system, there was considerable inflation in France. The introduction of a quasi-parallel currency should devalue the real franc and lower inflation in the African countries because the Africans cannot print money at will. Banque de France thus guaranteed the convertibility of the CFA franc into the real French franc for many decades and ensured its devaluation and a fixed exchange rate:

Since the introduction of the euro, the CFA franc has been linked to the common European zone. Still, it is the French treasury that is responsible for its stability and so it is the French tax payers who are held liable.

The monetary union thus transferred the cost of the CFA zone to the French taxpayer. Is it clear to an average French taxpayer that he is not only confronted with the cost of mass-migration and that, apart from the billions in development aid, which is usually wasted anyway, part of his tax goes to Africa? Part of it? Well, how much is that? Those responsible are happy to keep quiet about this. Try to get the information out, it’s like France’s state secret. The Maastricht Treaty provides proof of this: it says nothing about the CFA. Perhaps the French signed the treaty because the financial burden was too heavy for them?

Carrot for African elites, French conglomerates and… migrants

Let us take just one country as an example: Senegal, a popular destination for French presidents. Rolf Heimer wrote:”The devaluation (1994) of the CFA had two aspects: on the one hand, exports of its most important product, peanuts, actually rose in 1994/5, and thus the income of the plantation owners, who belonged to the elite; on the other hand, the majority of the population continued to impoverish, as the higher prices for the fertilizers and pesticides imported from abroad meant much lower income for most small farmers.

While devaluation against the franc or the euro makes imports from Europe more expensive, linking the CFA franc to the strong euro reduces the competitiveness of African CFA countries. It favours imports from countries with weaker currencies (e. g. China, Nigeria, India and Thailand). In addition, most of Africa’s exports are calculated in dollars, meaning that the loss is double, since any appreciation of the euro against the dollar worsens the total value of exports. It was particularly clear in the years 2000-2010: the appreciation of the euro put the CFA countries at a disadvantage. The African countries do not form an optimal currency area. It means that the group of countries can be hit by crises that are economically too much asymmetric: one of them can be worse off while others can be booming. There is no coordinated fiscal policy ensuring that capital is transferred from states that are doing well to those that are doing poorly. For example, rises in oil prices can cause immense damage to employment and production capacity in one country, as their central banks cannot cushion the negative effects of changes in nominal exchange rates, while another country may profit from the phenomenon. Even though the CFA guarantees its countries lower inflation and fiscal discipline imposed by the ECB, the question here is whether the cost of the single currency will not outweigh expected profits.

Who profits from it? It is certainly Africa’s upper classes and migrants. Thanks to CFA, the former can buy luxury goods at low prices in Europe and transfer French lifestyle to Africa, while the latter can rely on their homes in Ouagadougou or Dakar to retain their value.

Macron – a man who will change everything?

You must be joking. During his February visit to the former French colony of Algeria, he said:“Colonization is part of French history. It is a crime against humanity, a real barbarity. You have to face that part of the past and apologize for what has been done.” 

From a historical perspective it was a strange remark, because the French conquered Algeria while it was under the Ottoman rule to end Berber slave raids and piracy. Politically, his apologies make sense in that to rule the African continent, the Paris elites should win the hearts and minds of the black “French” peasants.

Uganda Begs for Indian Investment in Lucrative Mining and Tourism Sectors

22 11 2017

To continue with my observations in the last post entitled “Open reply to Pauline about the Blog Post ‘What is ACBN?‘…” This is another example of the kind of thinking which plagues Afrikans globally concerning the political and economic development models we are using. Here the Ugandan government has invited Indians whom Idi Amin rightly expelled to return and occupy an ownership and management class over the indigenous Afrikans themselves. My question is why does every nation all of a sudden in the last couple of hundred years need Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in order to “develop”? What source of funding did people use prior to the Bretton Woods international monetary system which instituted at the end of WWII and established the dollar as the world reserve currency? Through all of human history, were the fate of nations dependent on how well one could beg for FDI? This doesn’t make sense to me. In fact, it begs the question of who is directing countries like Uganda to seek investment from abroad, namely from countries like India. Could it be the people who originally brought the Indians there in the first place to serve as a merchant/buffer class to more efficiently exploit the Afrikans?

If it is unknown to the readers, the British government facilitated migration from India to Afrika to occupy these socio-economic positions. It was a tactical move to better protect the interests of the British colonial exploiters as they were attempting to build a global empire. This was the first iteration of a one world government. Thankfully, it failed, but true to form these criminal exploiters did not give up. Now “globalism” under the theology of “humanitarian intervention” and “multiculturalism” is the new system of global political-economic governance being constructed by these same European groups. Only this time in order to make the system more malleable, they are promoting the illusion of inclusion by giving small scale franchises in the form of neocolonial governments to Afrikan and other non-white leaders for the purposes of solidifying their hegemony this time.

If this model of FDI is the best and only viable model of development, then why are Afrikans in the diaspora excluded from participation in investment in Afrika? Presumably, the Ugandan and other governments know of the racist exploitation Afrikans in America face daily. Yet, Afrikan media outlets are curiously silent regarding this maltreatment and lack of economic opportunity. In fact, I see more discussion about the racism inflicted on Afrikans in America exposed on media outlets such as PressTV and Russia Today, but Afrikan media such as NTV Uganda & Kenya, Kenya Citizen TV, and Joy Online, have woefully small and inadequate coverage of these issues. Why? Is it racist to talk about the exploitation that one’s kinsman across the world are suffering at the hands of one’s “business partners” and new found BFFs? I guess it is in their minds, because of course, we all know the “white people have changed” from what they were during the enslavement and colonization period. (Yeah, right!)

This media bias can be seen in the seething joy and ecstatic celebration of outlets like the BBC at seeing the ouster of Robert Mugabe. They were literally salivating in the hopes of being able to broadcast that he had stepped down and the “will of the people” finally prevailed in Zimbabwe. Whatever mistakes and missteps he has made, he is the only Afrikan leader with international stature and who talks about the real problems Afrikans face in this system of globalization (which is actually white hegemony by another name). He actually discusses the problems of the lack of power the Afrikan nations possess and that the focus should be on internal development, and not with interfacing with foreign institutions and putting all of one’s energy into being the first to sell off all the resources to foreigners so that small factions of well-connected people can benefit financially by living as part of the “international community”. The unfortunate outcome of this might be a comprador class eager to partner with foreigners and benefit from the uneven trading system presently existing. These military takeovers may continue if Afrikan nations don’t undertake the structural re-architecture of their governing systems. This will help do at least two things. First, ensure the civil politicians are able to retire from office in dignity and still have a relevant role in society. Second, it will provide more resilience in the governing systems that focus on institutional continuity rather than personality cults. The model most Afrikan countries still have is based on the colonial governance model which was designed for a small clique of foreigners to have complete and unimpeachable power. If Afrikan nations are to develop real power based on our culture and identity, these types of structures will have to be jettisoned, modified, and/or updated.

One investment plan that Afrikan nations have yet to undertake is to identify Black (Afrikan) organizations in the USA and create a viable investment strategy for groups of Afrikan people in the USA who are the descendant of the victims of the Black Chattelization War.

(The Black Chattelization War is the more correct term for the “Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade” because it rightly identifies the fact that a war was fought and prisoners were taken who were subsequently enslaved intergenerationally and proper restitution has yet to be made for this crime.)

For example, an organization like the Nation of Islam or Afrikan Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church (both organizations that I do not advocate for, nor support, but they are examples of Black institutions in the USA with a sizable membership) could be identified by an Afrikan nation in need of FDI and given the opportunity for its membership to invest their capital in an equity fund which would give part ownership to each member of that organization in mines, construction projects, and other forms of infrastructure like airports, roads, railroads, water systems and the like. This would give Afrikans in the diaspora an economic and political stake regarding what happens in Afrika and would give Afrikan governments more leverage in negotiating trade agreements and determining international policies which they could bend to their favor. Programs for repatriation could be developed which privilege Afrikans in the diaspora with essential skills at getting residence visas, land grants or investment opportunities in real estate development projects for the purpose of inviting Afrikans abroad to live in Afrikan nations. Afrikans with skills in medicine, nursing, engineering, computer science, education, mathematics, science, technology, and even sociology or history can be welcomed just like the migrants are being welcomed with these skills in Europe, Canada and the USA to work in these sectors which allegedly have trouble finding qualified candidates. This would be one way of satisfying the need for FDI and correcting the historical crime of slavery as well as alleviating the victimization Afrikans face by the racist white dominant society in these expatriate colonial states such as the USA and Canada. A program like this would give the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) a much clearer mandate and educational policy which can offer real opportunity for Afrikans to help themselves instead of seeking employment with white owned and controlled multinational corporations or the US military. This would have a much better and long lasting effect rather than Afrikan nations sending their best and brightest students to the west and working for USA, British, and Canadian institutions as well.

Another interesting development is the touted impending introduction of the “petroyuan” as an addition to the international monetary system and a challenger to the sole dominance of the “petrodollar” foisted on the world by the USA in the early 1970s.

The most interesting aspect about this development for me is that the petroyuan is a “gold-backed” currency which will be able to settle transactions in the Chinese Renminbi (yuan) paper money which could in theory be traded for gold at anytime. This would provide a “safe-haven” for speculators, investors, and traders in the oil market. However, one must ask, “Where did China get the gold to initiate this trading market?” The answer of course is through mining concessions in various Afrikan Nations including Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda and others. So this too begs the question, why didn’t Afrikans simply set-up a gold-back currency to seize the oil trading market and in turn benefit by being able to use a sovereign currency to finance its own developmental goals? The answer is because China is being supported by a faction in the European hegemonic system to serve as a kind face on their continued plans for global domination in exchange for giving the Asians a seat at the global governance management table. Since the goal of Europeans is power at any cost, they have concluded that they will need the assistance of the East Eurasians (Chinese) to succeed in establishing a viable international economic order from which no nation or group can escape or successfully challenge. The Chinese are “all in” for this as it will save the communist party regime in Beijing and help to emigrate their surplus population to Afrikan nations to again serve as a merchant/management/buffer class over the Afrikans. Afrikan leaders have bought into this because they too will be saved and their relatively luxurious lifestyles will be ensured by the system. Mugabe in some ways challenged this, but with his isolation and the fervor of his political opponents to participate in this global system to satisfy their own selfish needs, it looks like Afrikans might be on the precipice of falling into a “honey trap” of apparent economic growth, but loss of real political power and independence as they must accept non-Afrikans in their midst to occupy high levels of society while the masses of Afrikans are still marginalized and used as poster children and props for “righteous humanitarian programs” and attempts by the global system through UN institutions to “alleviate poverty and disease, empower women, transition to a green economy”…Blah, Blah, Blah.

So, with the resignation of Mugabe and the calls and instituting a transitional authority in Zimbabwe to secure a safe transfer of power, we see one of the last of the revolutionary leaders of Afrika fading into the sunset. It is now time for this generation of Afrikans who are interested in continuing the process for attaining political-economic sovereignty and Afrikan power to do some real examination about our goals and methods for achieving them. We must ask are they truly our goals we are seeking or the goals of foreigners with a different agenda. Are the methods we are using actually successful? Are there other methods which might work better for us even though they are not sanctioned by “international institutions”? Are there specific problems that we have which only we can solve? We must be willing to identify them and dispel false narratives and failed policies in order not to be left behind or trampled underfoot by this white hegemonic, technocratic global onslaught yet again.





Open Reply to Pauline about the Blog Post “What is ACBN?”

20 11 2017

The following is a recent comment by a reader of The Lumumba Afrika Report by the name of Pauline. I am writing this open reply to the comment in order to illustrate several points that I think should be continually addressed with regard to Afrikan political thought at its present developmental stage.

Comment by Pauline (without corrections):

“Afrikan or African. I don’t really get it. As a Cameroonian, who loves her country and cultuee, but who has never set a foot in America, i don’t get ir. Never have a seen so much nonsense about race, of coursw racism is never ending like this. Sure own your culture, but come on people have always mixed and there are over 50 countries in Africa. The african who is born in africa, the half african born in africa by african parents, the black american who came to america 200 years ago. Who get a claim on who is to be what? Just rmbrace the beauty of the culture, don’t vack down and then who cares. You americans always talk about race nd for what?”

To rebut the comment point by point, I will start with the simple dichotomy with which the commenter begins the comment, namely implying the question of correctness in the use of African or Afrikan. The fact is that the spelling of Afrikan is the one which is used in one of the most prominent indigenous languages spoken on the Afrikan continent, that being Kiswahili. There are arguments as to whether the language is indeed indigenous, which are mainly focused on the large number of foreign “loan words” in the language. However, the English language, which spells Afrikan with a “c” instead of a “k”, has a similarly large amount of loan words in it as well. Yet, people don’t question the European origin of English nor the correctness of spelling differences in British and American English. To give an example, the word “beef” is actually from the French word “boeuf” which was spoken by the nobles of Britain when they were being dominated by France and had French regents in control of their monarchy. That word as well as pork (porc), fowl (volaille), difficult (difficile), and many others persist in the English language yet have foreign origins. In the modern sense, the Japanese word “tsunami” has replaced the English phrase “Tidal Wave” in recent years and no one seems to bat an eye. Yet, when an Afrikan person uses the Afrikan spelling of the word which describes our continent and the indigenous people who hail from that continent, we are met with scorn and derision as if we have done something incorrect. This indicates that for many Afrikans, their psychological orientation is primarily with identifying with foreign concepts, thoughts, systems, structures, and foreign people themselves. The general psychological disposition is not about studying our own concepts, philosophies, linguistics, biology, socio-economic and political systems in order to design and modernize systems which function with the purpose of maintaining our own survival as a biological group. It might seem that it is a small matter to make these conclusions based on positing a simple question “Afrikan or African”, but it nonetheless does indicate that there is a lower value placed on what is Afrikan by Afrikan people ourselves, and this is a MAJOR problem that we have yet to deal with comprehensively as a distinct people and socio-biological-political group.

The commenter actually concedes this point when she openly states that “I don’t get ir” (sic) She says that she has never seen so much “nonsense” about race. Well again, this supports my point in that Afrikans in the continent (and in the diaspora for that matter) have not taken on the task of studying the experience of Afrikan people globally, particularly regarding our interaction and victimization by non-Afrikan groups. Furthermore, the several scholarly articles and books that have been written by Afrikan people documenting the use of race as a weapon against the political organization and economic independence of Afrikans have not been infused in the curricula of so-called “independent” educational institutions across the continent. It should be common knowledge among Afrikans about the race-based policies that hampered the growth and development of the Afrikan world, its people, and how those policies morphed, but are still in effect today. These facts should especially be known among those who are from Afrikan areas which were adversely affected by The Black Chattelization War (aka “Slave Trade”) and European, Arab (and now Chinese) colonization like Cameroon, whose name itself means “shrimp” in the Portuguese language who were the people who named the area in the modern period.

She then claims that “racism is never ending like this”. I assume she is referring the ideas I wrote about in the article describing ACBN tenets. This statement of hers further indicates that the political orientations of Afrikan people are misguided because the basis of our outlook is significantly directed towards doing activity which “ends racism” and not orientated towards activity which gains power for Afrikan people collectively. Power wielded by Afrikan people through the organization of strong nations, with strong and functioning institutions, funded by strong economies, is the only way that Afrikan people can avoid being victimized by racism. It is the position of this writer that “racism” is a natural biological phenomenon on the earth and will always exist in some form or another, so ending racism is about as likely as ending the need of humans to procreate, eat, build shelters, and do the other myriad of things that help insure the biological survival of people in general. Power is also a natural phenomenon in nature and without which, one cannot survive. Moreover, groups cannot survive without power. It is power that initiates the activity which gives force and direction to human activity. However, power must be managed and it can only be done so effectively if the beneficiaries of power are properly identified. The popular ideal of “human survival” embodied in ideologies such as “humanism” and “humanitarianism” as a goal above and apart from the survival of a distinctive group of humans is nothing short of a plan of genocide, plain and simple. In order for general “human survival” to succeed, no concern must be given to the specific survival of distinctive biological groups (commonly referred to as a “race”) which were forged through a long history of genetic and environmental factors throughout time immemorial. This means that one or another group or groups must face functional extinction. Please see my article “Why Mulattoes and other Hybrids are not Afrikanhere.

In the above article I refer you to, you will see why the canard you repeated that “people have always mixed” is a destructive conclusion to hold. The effects of historical mixing have ALWAYS been disastrous for at least one group if not both groups who mixed. Copious examples of the outcome of this behavior are replete in history, but for Afrikan people, we should be advised that one common outcome of this idealistic “mixing” that you support, has been the rise of a group of whites who have monopolistic power over the masses of non-whites, with Afrikans typically occupying the bottom level of society. This should naturally compel Afrikans to reject mixing even more than all other races ( i.e. geno-cultural groups) on this planet. It is our collective mis-education in this area that makes us susceptible to foreign ideologies like the ones you adhere to. There is not one major social theory or ideology which exists presently whose foundational conceptual framework has at its basis the need for Afrikan survival. This also includes Christianity and Islam. A short study of the historical origins of these religions would reveal that they were both constructed with the intent to empower foreign groups to Afrika, not Afrikan people themselves. They were later imposed on Afrikan people through political-economic means and have continued to be practiced to this day by Afrikans even though it has not resulted in the similar level of status and economic power as it has for the groups which imposed them on us in the first place.

Lastly, you ask the question “who gets a claim on who is to be what?” In other words, you are asking, who is to decide who is an Afrikan? This is a very dangerous definition to outsource to an amorphous foreign authority which in your mind is still undefined. If Afrikan people don’t take it upon ourselves to define who is Afrikan, it will be defined by other groups with different and possibly opposing interests to our own. The question can only be answered historically and biologically. We have to look at history to discover how the existence of people whom you call “black americans” came into being. Where did they come from? Did they give up their nationality upon being kidnapped and sold into enslavement. No matter who did the kidnapping, selling, and buying, the fact remains that this was a criminal act and these people were wrongfully stripped of their national identity. For someone who claims to want all people to “end racism”, it is very curious that you do not support the right of return of these victims of enslavement. Yet, you support the imposed identity given to them by a foreign people who exploited these Afrikans for centuries without compensation. Again, our collective political orientation is misguided. This is again indicated by the statement you made of there being something called a “‘half african’ born in africa by african parents”. This is a logical impossibility. The word half means 50%. Therefore, by its very nature, it cannot be a whole. Meaning a mixed person (a person with each parent from two different races) is logically neither one nor the other race. Barack Obama is just as much White and he is Black, so it is racist (anti-Black) to refer to him as a Black president when he isn’t Black, he is mixed. The people in northern Afrika are Arabs and they migrated in and displaced the Afrikans living there. They are not Afrikan. Europeans similarly migrated to Afrika, so they are not Afrikan either. It is the bio-genetic heritage that Afrikan people share through the traits that we have, (e.g. brown to black skin and Afrikan textured hair) that makes us Afrikan. This is a biological designation that relates to the land of our origin. It does not refer to a place someone who does not have these traits was born or whose ancestors migrated to. Race is discussed in the USA because it is a tool for political control. If it wasn’t, why were people rejoicing over the “First ‘Black’ President”? Why did whites overwhelmingly elect Donald Trump? It is because race matters and is important in political and economic affairs! No matter how much you want to discount it or decide “not to understand”, race will always be used for social and political organization, so it is best to accept this reality before you wake up and realize that Afrikan people globally have no control over anything and we are totally dominated by trans-national corporations and inter-governmental institutions that are controlled by Europeans and a few Asians, and have Afrikan people reduced to slave status yet again. I hope this answers your questions. Thanks for reading.
