AFRICANGLOBE - Did Ted Nugent move to North Korea? I wonder because of the super hot racist rhetoric aimed at President Obama by the Hermit Kingdom’s state-run media. In a January interview with guns.com, Nugent called the president “a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel.” But that’s nuthin’ compared to what Obama was called in an article published by the North’s state-run news agency.

AFRICANGLOBE - One of the goals of U.S. President Barack Obama's tour of Africa is to promote U.S. business interests across the continent now turning to China. The competition between the economic giants is playing out in Tanzania, the last stop on Obama's tour.

Let me guess Obama is coming to visit Nigeria and Ethiopia? And Kenya, his “father grew up there herding goats in a tiny village…” No, he is not going there. Not going to Ethiopia!? America’s no. 1 African “partner” in the “war on terror”! Not going to Nigeria!? America’s biggest oil supplier in Africa! Not going to Kenya…

AFRICANGLOBE - The drop in Barack Obama's popularity comes on the heels of a leak that revealed the NSA has been conducting a large data-mining operation on American citizens.

AFRICANGLOBE - The controversy raging across America over the Satan character in cable television's miniseries The Bible bearing a haunting likeness to President Barack Obama is yet another flashpoint in America's persistent roil with racism that is rooted in serious, unresolved issues arising from slavery.

AFRICANGLOBE - Now that Washington lawmakers have finally proven just how dysfunctional they are by allowing the brutal sequester cuts to be enacted at midnight, they will now sit back and wait to see how federal agencies will slash $85 billion from their budgets.
