America will be saved if it turns to love

Written by
America can be saved; to be saved she must change direction and turn towards the truth of our existence. We are spirit beings having physical experience. Spirit is unified and love. To have physical experience we had to deny our loving nature and each of us affirms his individuality. To affirm our individuality we had to house ourselves in bodies and live in a world of space, time and matter, for those make us seem separated from each other and validate our individuality as opposed to our unity in our natural spirit state. In bodies each of us does what…

Does Obama hate America?

Written by
I am a black man. Like black men worldwide I was thrilled when Barack Obama was elected the president of these United States of America. His election made black folks proud; it made them feel that finally a black man could rule the most powerful country in the world; it gave them hope that they, too, could amount to something big if they worked hard for it. Obama was one of the least qualified men to become the President of America; he had had no managerial and leadership experience before his election. That notwithstanding, I was willing to give him…
I must confess up front in the interest of full disclosure that I burrowed this title from Ted Cruz. The clear winner in yesterday’s Republican Debate, left to me alone, is Wolf Blitzer, the unflappable chief moderator of the debate and his team of two agent provocateurs who asked all the right questions and who made sure the 9 candidates can run but not hide in that debate. The real winner among the debaters themselves has to be Lindsey Graham who is scoring less than 1 percent in the opinion polls the last time I checked because he presented the…
To all with eyes to see, it is clear that the Islamic State, ISIL, has America in its crosshairs. ISIS would like to bring down Christian America and replace it with an Islamic caliphate. As ISIS sees it, its goal is not only doable but easily done. It sees America as a godless country and figures that with choice terrorist acts all over the country the people would devote much of their resources to protecting themselves. Given their already whooping debt ($19 trillion) incurring additional debt is not sustainable. About $25 trillion dollars debt is the maximum America can have…
The latest Poll in the Republican Party is still showing Donald Trump, the most unelectable candidate leading the pack by double digits. He has continued to do so for more than three months which is a first in American history the last time I checked. The amazing observation in America in particular and other developed countries of the world like Britain is that opinion poll has become a very dependable Science and a way to predict the outcome of elections long before the first vote is cast. The observation speaks to the veracity and truthfulness of American voters as compared…

Is Barack Obama Delusional?

Written by
In right wing political circles, the word on the street is that President Barack Obama is delusional. You can hardly tune on Fox News (TV) without hearing some pundit refer to Obama as delusional. Last night, after Obama gave his address to the nation regarding the Muslim terrorist couple that killed 14 persons and wounded 21 in California, the talking heads at Fox News, especially the psychiatrist, Charles Krutzchimer, routinely dismissed what the President said as delusional. I heard the man referred to as delusional so many times that I decided to understand what is going on here. Dictionary.com has…

Obama seems ready to collapse!

Written by
I watched Barack Obama's Sunday evening (8PM, December 6, 2015) address to the nation. What struck me is how fast he is aging. He is fifty four years old and is almost all gray haired; his face looked like the face of a scared sick old man, a man about ready to collapse and die! I asked why? I believe that the reason is because he was elected to be who he is not by nature. By nature he is a peacemaker (he would have done well as the secretary general of the United Nations). The President of the United…
Republicans would never get my vote. You can call this statement a lie not because I deliberately wanted to lie to all of you reading this. It is a lie because I have made a few exceptions in my voting pattern since I became an American citizen by choice. I would have voted for Abraham Lincoln if I was in America in 1861 when he first ran. I would have voted for his courage in signing into Law the Emancipation Proclamation even though he was a slave owner himself. You can call my first statement a lie because I once…
Many Republicans and Donald Trump in particular want a simplistic solution on how to confront the Syrian conflict, remove Assad from power and defeat ISIS without turning the Middle East into another quagmire. It is now clear that such a scenario does not and will not keep either Vladimir Putin or Donald Trump awake at night like it does to Obama as President of the United States and leader of the Free World. The silent majority of Americans must understand that to appreciate the caliber of the President that God has given them in Barack Obama. I see little or…
A learned Nigerian Professor and a good friend of mine whose name I would not mention in this article once told me he would gladly support wiping out the Muslims altogether from the face of the Earth because they are killing Christians. Much as I like and respect the Professor, I was glad that he, as a pure academician would never find himself in a position of power to actualize his wish. There was a part of me that wanted to believe that my friend was as crazy as a fox but I love him too much to tell him…
The first half of the 21st century is turning out to be decades full of fear around the globe including the developednations, the emerging countries, and the undeveloped areas of our earth. One can argue forcefully and convincingly that these fears are directly linked by the decision of USA led Western Countries to enthrone what has been called Western Democracy in countries far and wide and to do so by the doctrine of "Regime Change." Former USA president George Bush II introduced the practice by the invasion of Afghanistan on October 7, 2001 in the pursuit of 9/11 bombers followed…
Call it diplomatic nicety or anything you like. The Natanyahu the whole world saw your yesterday was totally different from the one that addressed the joint session of Congress a few months back. Natanyahu spoke as if the State of Israel owns America and can do what she likes with America. The Republican-dominated Congress who let him do that would be the last to ever publicly acknowledge that Barack Obama is anything but a great President. They are simply in denial and I pity them. They knew in their hearts that the first black landlord of the White House and…

Why I am supporting Donald Trump

Written by
In liberal circles the word is that Donald Trump is full of his self, is a narcissist seeking attention and admiration from the public; they say that he is only in it for his self, is promoting his interests and does not care for other people's interests; they say that the man uses other people for his goals and when they are no longer useful to him he discards them as rag dolls. If one asks how these folks reached their negative conclusion about Mr. Trump, they point to his incessant talking about how he is the number one in…
I predicted more than a year ago that the presidential race is going to come down to a race between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton and that Hillary win. I neither speak in tongue nor pretend as many do in Nigeria to have a direct communication with God when everything is pointing to or showing the exact opposite. I have heard of a Pastor in one of the Indianapolis Mountain of Fire Church who has slept with nearly every member of his congregation, all in the name of God. I have the greatest respect for Pastor Olukoya, the General Overseer…
I have the greatest respect for Joe Biden as a life-long democrat and one of the most eloquent and thoughtful American politicians you will ever know. In my article titled "Important tips for Hillary in tonight's debate" posted by Chatafrik, Sahara, Google and the Facebook, I accurately predicted the Vice President has lost the momentum, and therefore would not run when the chips are down. I was persuaded he would not join the presidential Marathon because Hillary already has a lock on that nomination, come rain or shine. I predicted Joe Biden has run out of time. I even gave…
Republicans think they are smart in a country where nobody however brilliant or smart has a monopoly on wisdom. As you are busy planning to pull a fast one on an opponent in America, the opponent is busy strategizing to return fire for fire. It is a great country where geniuses are never in short supply on both sides of the political divide because America thrives on competition. I used to think there would never be another Tim Russert of the "Meet the Press fame until Chuck Todd showed up. I never thought there would never be a replacement for…
Let me make a confession before you read any further. I am attracted to women that combine brain and beauty like Hillary. My late wife exemplified that combination better than any other women in my life and I still cherish her memories till tomorrow and would forever do till I die. There was another precious woman in my life who was nicknamed “Margaret Thatcher” to this day by those who know her very well because she is beautiful and amazingly bright and intelligent like my late wife, a product of Christ School Ado Ekiti who gave me 5 amazingly-bright children…
America the bastion of Democracy often amazes me as arguably the greatest experiment in human history. I say America is God's work or miracle but I do also know that America's greatness is derives more from the hard work of her founding fathers and the succeeding generations that follow them till now. I say that because my Christian faith beckons me to ascribe everything that happens to God even where it is clear beyond any reasonable doubt that God cannot possibly have a hand behind everything that happens in the world as some overzealous Christians would want us to believe.…
King Herod ordered the slaughter of all new babies after Jesus was born in Bethlehem. His ultimate goal was to eliminate baby Jesus of Nazareth. He completely forgot, however, that he was going after the son of God, the anointed of the Lord, and the King of Kings. Republicans in 2008 threw their support to Barack Obama in some of the primaries where Republicans were allowed to vote in some democratic primaries. They did so to not so much because they loved Obama. They did so to eliminate Hillary so their candidate, John McCain a prisoner of war, a highly…
I have studied American politics long enough to make this comment. Let me say up front that I am an independent-leaning democrat who initially supported Hillary Clinton in 2008. I initially thought the new sheriff in town with a name that would quickly remind American voters of Osama Bin Laden did not stand a chance at all. I had thought Obama's name was going to give the Republicans powerful ammunition to convincingly stigmatize him as a Muslim and to effectively kill his presidential ambition. The Republicans in their calculation made the same mistake we all made that Obama could not…
I have just finished watching a serious interview between two Harvard graduates on the Iran Deal and how the approval or the rejection of it by the US Congress could negatively or positively impact the possibility of Iran getting the nuclear bomb. The guest was Barack Hussein Obama the first black President of the United States who collaborated and led the Leaders of the five most powerful nations in the world who put aside their internal squabbles, rivalries and shifting strategic interest to unanimously to produce the monumental deal in the interest of world peace. The interviewer was Fareed Zakaria,…

A few fans of this column on the Sahara website would want me to write a lot more on Nigeria and Africa than I do of America. They argue that since Sahara's motto is "Everything Africa" I should be much more concerned about Nigeria and Africa than America. I reply to them that in the age of globalization and computer the whole world has become one global village because information travels so fast these days. I assure them that Sahara cannot afford to completely ignore its host country which has more or less become the center of the Universe. I…

On iran deal

Written by
I Have Decided Not To Concern Myself With The Spread Of Nuclear Technology Dr. Wumi Akintide: I did what I said that I would do, read the Iran deal before I comment on it. Actually, I did not read all of it, for it runs to over a thousand pages long; I read the summary of it which is about 150 pages long. It basically restated what is already in the public domain. The deal essentially gives Iran ten years break from continuing its quest for nuclear program; during that ten year period the International Atomic Energy Commissions can do…
