Obama Unveils New Africa Strategy

Stephen Collinson, Yahoo! News, June 14, 2012

US President Barack Obama released a sweeping new Africa strategy Thursday, declaring a continent torn by poverty, corruption and discord could be the world’s next big economic success story.

The new US blueprint seeks to boost trade, strengthen peace, security and good governance and bolster democratic institutions, and is designed to help Africa’s increasingly youthful population lead its development.

“As we look toward the future, it is clear that Africa is more important than ever to the security and prosperity of the international community, and to the United States in particular,” said Obama, a US-born son of a Kenyan father.

It comes as Washington, tooling a regional policy towards trade and development, also views Africa’s intractable conflicts with concern, including areas vulnerable to extremists, including in Somalia and even Mali.


The administration Thursday touted “successes” from helping restore democracy in Ivory Coast, nurturing the new state of South Sudan, backing stability efforts in Somalia and engaging young African leaders.


Obama has also highlighted food security challenges, and in May unveiled a scheme designed to lift 50 million people, including in Africa, out of poverty by linking up governments, civil society groups with the private sector.

He maintained former president George W. Bush’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief which has improved life expectancy on the continent and will support lifesaving treatment for six million people by the end of next year.

The plan commits Washington to encourage legal and regulatory reforms that could spur investment and trade and improve economic governance, and to promote regional economic integration.

    Where do I even start with this one?

    “As we look toward the future, it is clear that Africa is more important
    than ever to the security and prosperity of the international
    community, and to the United States in particular,” said Obama, a
    US-born son of a Kenyan father.”

     Well forgive me for not knowing Africa was of any importance to our “security and prosperity”. In fact it’s the exact opposite. Our Aid money flows in one direction only. And the only thing it’s creating is more population excess, more wars, more anarchy and more starvation.

     Don’t forget to mention that the vast majority of the African Aids sufferers treated with expensive drugs are refusing to take them as they’re supposed to, creating an Aids plague.

      That’s how our “trade” with Africa works: We the taxpayers give them aid and in return African immigrants give us AIDS.

      • More plunder of White tax payers.  Africans keep popping out 6 babies per woman, and Whites keep producing zero.

        Now according to “conservative writer” Barone who was married to a Jewess, we should import 100 million more from Africa and enjoy Kenyan American Senators in next 30 years.

        What Africa need is IUDs, not endless trillions and endless mass invasion of West.

      • haroldcrews

        It’s my concern that large scale use of anti-retroviral drugs in Africa could end up creating resistant strains of HIV/AIDS as has happened with staph and antibiotics.  I have no medical training could anyone say whether or not the concern is legitimate?

    • Kurt Plummer


      The reason to save Africa ‘for the world’ is simple.  If we don’t China will.  For it’s own purposes.  This includes both resources and future settlement as a population safety valve.  The difference is that the U.S. will set all kinds of libtardian preconditions for human rights and democracy as ‘respect for capitalism’ which, in the case of an average 70 IQ is about like giving copies of The Iliad and Odyssey to a bunch Neanderthals and expecting more than a portable kindling response.

      The Chinese work with single strongmen and unlike Ghaddafi they don’t betray them 3 years down the road.  The strongman gets filthy rich and acts as a mud flap when things get nasty keeping the locals in their place.  The Chinese also create local enclaves of all-Chinese workers which is -vastly- superior to trying to herd cats.  Or work with moron level African IQs who will steal the air out of  an inflateable mattress if you let them in the door.

      I am all for AIDS research.  Any viral disease which is sex linked has the potential to radically mutate itself in ways that could _severely_ depress fertility.  Without exogenics, that’s a recipe for species annihilation.

      Having said this, Africa just crossed a billion people.  By 2060 they will be at 2.7 billion.


      Just behind India on the world’s most populous continent scale.  They are the ONLY population group whose growth rate is expected to continue to increase all the way out to 2100, with literally no end in sight.


      The UN mandated Codex Alimentarius puts in such restrictors on non-BGH injected proteins and fish and GMO mandated cereal crops and removal of vitamin supplements as ‘toxins’ to and from the African agricultural base that they literally cannot grow or sell meat _to their own people_ sufficient to avoid starvation.  That this may be a deliberate first step towards active (negative eugenics driven) population control is argued by several videos on Youtube.

      Either way, saving six million lives means nothing.  Codex Alimentarius is predicted to kill 3 BILLION with-a-B lives due to the spread of diseases related to poor nutrition alone.


      Keep the money here and let the research save Americans.  We are not the author of the world’s tragedies.  We should not have to be it’s Christian saviors.  That is _not_ how our government was set up to function.

  • AIDS won’t kill black Africa:


    Like we knew it wouldn’t.  Yes, ARV drugs are slowing AIDS down.  But even if ARV drugs weren’t available, AIDS still wouldn’t result in a sharp decline in the population of black Africa.  AIDS complications don’t kill you fast enough to preclude you from prolific procreation, and we all know that prolific procreation is in the African’s wheel house.

    • Jerrybear

       The biggest problem is that we feed Africa and the rest of the third world resulting in population explosions.  Our good intentions will lead to our own demise.

    Mr. “President” (yech!), the only way the Dark Continent will EVER become an economic success story is if it is administered, governed, or otherwise controlled by Europeans or European-derived peoples. 

    Virtually all the infrastructure and modicum of civilization that exists in Africa is the fruit of White ingenuity, White planning, White financing, White effort, White foresight, White brainpower.  Native Africans have contributed perhaps 10 percent of what little “good” there is in Africa (mostly in the physical manpower portion of the civilization equation), whereas they have contributed to about 99 percent of the “bad.”

    All that being said, it comes at a HUGE opportunity cost–all that White talent hypothetically being wasted on the Black Hole Continent could be put to much better use improving the already decent lot of White civilization.

      I have hopes that the Chinese will fill that role. 

      • Jerrybear

        Are you Asian yourself? I ask that because almost everything you post has a side note referencing Orientals.

        • MikeofAges

           Mr Engleman, if have my story straight, comes from Santa Clara County in California. If don’t know if his wife is Asian, but I have some thought that she is. He can better address the issue of his marital situation than anyone else can. For the part of the world he apparently comes from, his view are pretty contrarian and realistic in their own way. As I have noted elsewhere, the idea that Indians and Chinese can and will establish a large presence in Africa represents in my view a positive development. The West obviously cannot do so attempt to do so a second time, not in the world today.

          • Jerrybear

            Sure. Someone needs to take charge of that hell hole and I’d rather it not be us. I just find it odd that Engleman always has to add some sort of jab or reference to how superior Asians are. Even when it is irrelevant.

          • MikeofAges

            Being where he is, he’s inevitably kind of “snowblind” on that issue. Lived there myself years ago. Sometimes dealt with Chinese as business prospects. When I didn’t like what they were trying to do, I got in their face over it. Their attitude was “Oh, okay” and business went on. The average white person there was so afraid of being accused of being racist they just let the Chinese take and take and take. I don’t think they’re particularly malicious or anything, just sharp dealers, but as the saying goes, “Nature abhors a vacuum”. Become a “vacuum”, i.e., lose your own willpower and identity, and someone will move in on you and replace you.

          • JohnEngelman

            The historical role and responsibility of empires is to impose civilization on barbarians and savages. The Roman Empire imposed civilization on the Celts. The Holy Roman Empire imposed civilization on the Germans. The European empires in sub Saharan Africa ended centuries too soon. I hope the Chinese will be able to to what the Europeans failed to to. 

          • Kurt Plummer

            Taking a purely Boudiccan view for the sake of argument, Rome destroyed the existing macro-cultures of Gallia, Albion and Germania, leaving a social vacuum into which poured the Germanic Tribes, themselves hotly pursued by Huns and other Steppe Cultures.  Thus you saw double doses of brutal treatment of the indigenous peoples as a consequence of first colonization and then pullback.

            I am not saying that the cultures extant in what we now call ‘England’ (Angles) were all that wondrous in their sophistication or cultural morality.  But the difference between cultural rape and uplifting in global real politick often comes down to whether the father agrees to stick around after the fun is done.

            I find it far more likely that the Chinese will do exactly that with Middle Africa, something along the lines of what Hitler intended: displacing African peoples to small outlier areas from which they would be brought in as limited season slaves, freeing up room for native Chinese so that industrial colonies can enrich the parent country while edging the aboriginal populations towards extinction.

            What people _do not seem to realize_ is that WE DON’T MASSED NUMBERS OF MANUAL LABOR IN AGRICULTURE ANYMORE.  It is a vestigial remnant idea, like a social memory, of how things -used- to be.

            And it will become more so as automation links up with things like artificial water supplies from coastal desalinization plants.  Because you will need to run things like clockwork to keep all those screaming mouths fed.  No matter what the color of their skin.

            – Kurt Plummer     
            Madison Grant, whom Jared Taylor admires, blamed the fall of the Roman Empire, at least in part, on the influx of inferior races. It is ironic that the only major influx was of the Nordics whom Madison Grant thought were superior to all other racial groups. 
            There was little influx of Semites, and virtually none of Negroes.     
            Civilization breeds civilized people. When Julius Caesar first wrote about the Germans two thousand years ago they were culturally, and probably biologically, at the level of the Bantu two hundred years ago. They had iron technology, but no cities, no writing, and no mathematics. The political unit was the tribe. The economy combined primitive agriculture with hunting. 

        • JohnEngelman

          I am a Nordic Gentile who admires Orientals and Jews because of their high average IQs and low crime rates. Every country in the world benefits from their immigration. 

          • MikeofAges

             Certain benefits devolve, true. But the point is, certain countries belong to certain peoples. These countries should be able to develop their own people rather than importing foreign educated labor. As noted elsewhere, the period when immigration was limited after 1920 was a period of great development in the United States. European immigrant groups, including Mediterranean nationalities like the Italians and Jews), settled and assimilated, and developed relatively harmonious relations between their various hyphenated-American cultures. You won’t hear it from the liberals, but during that period race relations between black and white outside of the Deep South improved and particularly job prospects for African American men improved greatly. Also, African American life also became greatly more settled and stable and educational performance improved.

            Here’s a pointed question: Does the majority, with due regard for the concerns of others, have the right to decide what the features of American society are supposed to be. That includes the idea that we should develop our intelligentsia out of our majority population. Yes or no?

            I think the majority has the right to decide pretty much anything it wants to, but you should not assume that the majority agrees with you on everything. 
            According to a CBS News/New York Times Poll taken May 31-June 3, 2012, a plurality of Americans think illegal immigrants “should be allowed to stay in their jobs and to eventually apply for U.S. citizenship.” 

          • MikeofAges

            Mr. Engleman — I think you misunderstand what the term “majority” means in this context. I’m sure you’ll be back.

            So will I.

          • Jerrybear

            Except white countries that face ethnic extinction. You should get a copy of Jared Taylor’s most recent book and read the chapter on Asians. They are certainly better than most immigrants but they are as left wing as every other minority group and are slowly learning how to play the victim game. If we continue to water down our values and traditions with liberalism and non white immigration, we will no longer be a nation.

          •  Not so sure The USA benefited from the immigration of the Jews and CHinese, that is unless you think the Federal Reserve, SPLC, DHS, CIA, Hart Cellar Immigration Act of 1965, WEN HO LI and other Chinese spies are GOOD THINGS!

      • Sherman_McCoy

        I couldn’t care less about Africa or black africans.  But I do like the idea of ANYONE who has no “white guilt” running Africa.  A negative could be if we get more refugees in the West.

        • alastairabbacle

          Is there a such thing even as “yellow guilt”?

    • MikeofAges

      The Chinese and the Indians have been moving into Africa and will continue to do so. The Indians for a long time. The Chinese only more recently. Maybe they can do what Westerners could not quite accomplish — bring order without a lot of friction and resentment. If they can do that, it will be to the West’s benefit.

      • Kurt Plummer

        You’d better hope not.

        Our economy only remains viable (on lifesupport) so long as the RMB remains pinned to the USD which is itself underwritten by Saudi oil, not ‘market indices’.

        The gold standard remains, it’s just that it’s black gold.

        When Saudi goes post-peak, the Iranians will invade, by proxi, Iraq and these two _shiia_ states will then sell oil exclusively in RMB.  The RMB will decouple from the USD and world wide interest rates, suppressed to near-zero percent, will surge, overnight, to 4%.  Within a year they will be at 9-11%.

        And whoever controls Africa with it’s combination of open grasslands ready for agro and deep mineral and timber reserves will be able to set prices on everything manufactured or fed to everyone.  Because they will have the oil control on ‘P3’:  Power, Propulsion, Plastics.  By which delivery is paid at a premium.

        What most ‘normal Americans’, long since browbeaten to submission by the libiots, don’t realize is that Imperialism as Real Politick has _very real_ consequences to the economics of a nation.  Being a bunch of ‘morally upright’, mush brained, fools who exhibit the right kinds of outrage to the right kinds of leading subjects does _nothing_ to keep you ontop of the economic SES pile.

        Only ruthless exploitation can assure that and this is a trait (as a resource) which the inscrutably ‘private’ Chinese hold in no small measure.  It’s very hard to criticize someone who doesn’t deign to notice your yapping about a condition they are quiet happy maintaining.

        This is why the ‘nice guy’ approach to African deliberate evolution will not work.

        There simply isn’t time before -some- other, ‘already there’ country takes over.

        What Africa needs more than anything is a serious enema of her working biosphere.

        With DDT and hunting to kill off the largely inedible local game populations (and the disease vectors that go with them) and donated water and solar power supplies necessary to sustain massive followon ‘quad based pastoralism’ as the world’s cereal and beef suppliers.  Thereby giving them a millenium of catchup on a high protein diet to boost their mental function in the strictly time regulated business of agriculture.

        Just as whites endured.

        It won’t happen.  Because the demands of capitalism won’t support it.  And why should China wait?  We didn’t with the Native Americans.

  • What uncanny prescience:

    “…none of the colored races shows perceptible signs of declining birth rate, all tending to breed up to the limits of available subsistence. Such checks as now limit the increase of colored populations are wholly external, like famine, disease, and tribal warfare. But by a curious irony of fate, the white man has long been busy removing these checks to colored multiplication….The consequence is a portentious increase of population in nearly every portion of the colored world now under white political sway….Now what must be the inevitable result of all this? It can mean only one thing: a tremendous and steadily augmenting outward thrust of surplus colored men from overcrowded colored homelands….Where, then, should the congested colored world tend to pour its accumulating human surplus, inexorably condemned to emigrate or starve? The answer is: into those emptier regions of the earth under white political control. But many of these relatively empty lands have been definitely set aside by the white man as his own special heritage.”

  • The only national success story in Africa is the country of Botswana. Look at how they did it, and find ways to implement that elsewhere in Africa. Anything else is just destined to fail.

    From what I understand, the only signifigant foreign aid the country receives is directly related to AIDS and wildlife preservation… and not much in the case of the later. 


    (Notice how GDP is comparable to or exceeding many Eastern European countries.)

      Something tells me that a land-locked country sitting right next to South Africa is somehow going to benefit should the ingenuity, wealth and infrastructure that built South Africa be allowed to leak to other countries. That’s what I though when I heard Botswana, and sure enough:

      “Most retail expansion has been from regional players, primarily based in neighbouring South Africa,” reads the report.”

      “Due to market saturation in South Africa,
      retailers in that country have been aggressively eyeing the sub-Saharan
      market for expansion leading to the mushrooming of many malls in
      Gaborone in a short space of time. In the past year, three malls- Sebele,
      Rail Park and Airport Junction- have opened shop in Gaborone with most
      tenants being South African retailers.”


      The success stories of places like Botswana are nothing more than smoke and mirrors created by the global vampires in order to keep their Global Corporatism intact.

      I mean, really, how hard is it to prop up a country of two million?

      The more examples I see of unrestrained Capitalism, the more I understand why people hate it so much.


    Dear President Obama, I live in Detroit, and just like Africa,  my life also has been ” torn by poverty, corruption and discord,” and I believe that “it could be the world’s next big success story.”  

    Really!   I have a dream!  

    Please send me 1 Billion economic aid straight-way, andI promise to become an “economic success.”

    The best thing is that this taxpayer money will be going back into the USA economy, not down the economic black hole known as African.


  •  But we are determined to subdue the Muslims of the world in order to better control the world.

    If only.  If we’re dumb enough to intervene in Syria, we’ll only be helping to replace a secular despot with the AQ religious zealots.  See also:  Bush 43 and Iraq II, Carter and Iran, Shari’ah Spring.

  • This is simply another way to destroy what is left of the wealth in the hands of the white middle class.  Obama, with today’s announcement of amnesty for illegals, will find additional ways to flood the USA with new blacks from Africa.  It might be under the heading of a study program or some other ruse, make no mistake about it, this evil man from Africa is following orders.  They will find a way to reelect him if they believe it is time to really press us.  And there will be a time when we will not be able to fight back.  I believe we are nearer that time.  Just look at how much would need to be undone by the next administration that this one has schemed to do to us.

    Could somebody get back to me in about 50,000 years?

  • Kurt Plummer


    In the late 1980s it was said there were 100,000 aid workers in black Africa.

    With respect, I am not a fan of blacks but 100,000 vs. 1,000,000,000 is a 10,000:1 ratio in favor of the primitives.

    Africa is the second largest continent with some 20% of the world’s landmass and 11.6 million square miles of territory-


    A trillion dollars sounds similar to the total investment for the 50 year throwaway investment in the ICBM/Atomic Bomb programs and that postulated for a trip to Mars by 2150.

    And you want to compare those short-domain projects to the equivalent of at least a 3 millennia (7-10K vs. less than 6 millennia development of LCT lactose tolerance as the nutritionaly underlay to advanced brain development…) of economic development in Europe?

    That’s the late bronze age of Mediterranean Culture to today sir.  Considerably more than what any -individual- cultural cost:benefit return can encompass.



    While I do believe there is a solution for Africa, I would be far more interested in determining two things before we save it for it’s people or ourselves rather than using something as virtual as ‘profit’ driven analysis.

    1.  Do we want to save the Africans as a living Missing Link anachronism?
    Most people believe that such links are transitional species which the vagaries of fossilization have prevented from being completely recorded for the benefit of our taxonomical classification.  This is simply not true.  There have been somewhere betwee 25 and 32 different species classifications of advanced homonids in our past.  And as many as 7 of them were coexistent at various stages of coming up or fading out as recently as half a million years ago.
    It doesn’t follow that every subspecies (for that is what race is to me) has to ‘succeed’, into the next evolutionary cycle.  Certainly it doesn’t follow that whites have to fail trying to uplift others to reproductive success over our own.

    2.  What is their maximum to be?
    Again, most people see evolutionary peaks as being an absolute which all members of a given group strive for in transition to something else.  This is NOT a realistic cognitive model, if only based on variances in supporting environmental conditions as the underlying selection/stress vectors which onset speciative adaptation to equilibrium.  Or displacement.

    If we determine that Africans are to have a societ which enjoys white-style privilege ‘for their own sake’ we have to enable them to act in their own best interests to uplift and sustain themselves.  That will mean a century or more of applied genomics.  And we frankly cannot wait that long to begin interdicting Africa’s runaway population cycle (which admittedly is likely throwing out a huge number of mutations likely for selective sweep adoption but which, in absolute numbers, was not required for the much smaller white and asian populations of the north).

    One way to reach such a balanced intercession might be to accept that blacks will function much like patients in a retirment or mental disability home.  With minimal positive interaction with the development of modern society.

    Requiring a care taker force instead.

    Whites will never ‘volunteer’ in the numbers required to be that force.  But a simple 10:1 improvement in white overseer to actual labor construct force (1,000,000 total ‘aid workers) would reduce the manning ratio of served to servicer to 1,000:1.  Ten million drones and you are down to 100:1.  Which is actually far better than say the police, or government services bureaucracy norms for the U.S..

    So!  Ten million robots.  At 40,000 dollars each in productionized (scaled) quantities = 400 billion dollars in vested capital.  And they need never be paid.  Never retire or decide, after their third beating or rape, that the Peace Corps just isn’t for them.  And could be trusted to work in -small- cadre’s of 10-100 robots on an expansion plan that essentially worked like the system which built the trans continental railroads.  Every man would teleo-operate 10-20 robots, setting up formation patterns of interleaved labor activities which would then be set to complete on autopilot without the exhausting grind of personal, physical, expenditure.

    And of course, unlike the railroads, we would have teams start in the equivalents of Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada And California.  Simultaneously.  Using GPS survey coordination of layout to join up.

    What will this bring?

    A.  Deep water access to the entire continent.  As a means to offset the dry season and uproot navtive (warring and disease ridden) natives from the river networks which they share with the animal populations.

    B.  Power.  As a standup solar or wind driven electric grid, both to enable the pumping booster stations and set up _small_ individual communities for which local airstrips would provide assured food to separated tribes.

    All of this would have to be protected by moated enclosures and automated patrols/surveillance/weapons installations.

    C.  Food.  As massed cereal crops and million strong herds of cattle.

    It would be a heritable investment (anthropomorphic robots can be used, indefinitely, for _peacetime_ gain, at little or no payback investment) and while it would not be an eyeblink opertion, it would be a beginning to the biggest terraforming project we have ever undertaken as the turning of Africa’s savannah into a large agrarian farm belt.

    And her people into a well fed, well educated, low density, population ready for genomic advances (which would set them up for self-rule), later in the century.

    The endgame justifying this investment being that it would feed much more than just Africa. 

    Because one of the conditions of free food, clean water, modern electronic entertainment and airconditioning in a prefab concrete apartment with a robotic janitor and automated garbage/sewage handling would be _mandatory_, longterm, compliance with birthcontrol.

    Implanted like Norplant or Implanon.

    So that numbers could not increase beyond the carrying capacity which these isolated community developments could support.

    We are going to NEED FOOD in the next century.  Like we never have before.  To feed a population which may well peak out at 12-14 billion.

    And Africa is probably the best place to grow it.  If we are willing to encompass global needs with black social evolutionary ones as a total concept package.

    And when we are done building there, we bring the bots to India.  Or South America.  Or even here to the U.S..  Where 50+ years of living with third world imported populations will have been brutally harsh towards OUR decaying infrastructure.

    If we think they are worth investing in at all.

    My opinion of Obama’s New African strategy.
    Looking at the conditions of Black Americans I don’t know if Africa’s Blacks want U.S ideas for helping them to become successful. After all what has been developed after 500 years? What has they to point to? How has Obama been different than previous white U.S President’s policies when it comes to African countries self determination and control? One can identify Toxic Foreign Western Aid with strings attached like “same sex marriage gay demonstrations”, “more abortions”, “aids drug usage”, “Land Reform”, “GMO foods by Monsanto” and the doing away of “traditional values”. Open up black African Countries produce markets to be dumped on with U.S grown produce destroying local industries like we have seen going on in South America. Obama will be asking for black African Countries to implement the Neo-Con policies and ideas of that trio known as the IMF, World Bank and WTO coercing countries to privatize their life infrastructures like water and electricity. To use Al-Qaeda as an excuse is very convenient since the U.S created this terrorist group as reported by many including Sect of State Hillary Clinton. The Mujahideen were the “database” of Al-Qaeda assets. Al-Qaeda is a controlled opposition force of the Central Intelligence Agency to promote their Middle East destabilization process. To give a empirical U.S. Military Industrial Complex a reason to invade wherever they wish in the ever widening “war on terror” fraud. Black African Countries relationship with China or even themselves has never set well with White Nations. They punish you with demonic sanctions and boycotts once you have given them your trust and don’t do their political wishes. To use Somali as an example of progress when it was the U.S who destroyed Somali during her Cold War Antics with Russia which led to the propping up of Siade Barre? Obama’s interfering with the election outcome in Cote d’ Voire at the bequest of France ignored that country Constitutional Laws. It would be nice if Obama would criticize France on it’s strangle hold it continues of those Franco Phone Countries with that evil C.F.A Pact Currency. How many Ivoirians must suffer to allow for one Frenchman to live well? Why don’t Obama issue an Executive Order for the U.S to live out its promises under the Carter Administration to the Lancaster Agreement with Zimbabwe? Africans and those who love her like I had better pay attention and protest this latest move as described by Sect. State Hillary Clinton during a 2011 visit to Lusaka Zambia when she spoke against a “New Colonialism” referring to China when the “Old Colonialism” doesn’t want to release its deadly grip.

    •  Translating all this gibberish into English, you think that Africa will bloom into a first world paradise and an economic superpower if white people would simply leave it alone.  I agree with the second half of that, but that’s all.

  • Vildan

     Sorry, but how can you possibly come to the conclusion that I think the whole of Africa is a nation? I said “become president there”, as in president of one country, and not “King of Africa”. I could have said it in a better way, but I guess I thought people would understand what I meant anyway.
    I didn´t really now about the “Afrikaners”, I simply call any black “Afrikaner”. I do that because that´s what “African” means in German and I grew up there and got used to call them that.
