Trump Presidency several times more dangerous than Obama’s

Active Democracy knows all of Jewish Establishment malice … we know allof the skins that they hide under and we know all of their criminal activities. We have also kept the White House in the loop and top political leaders are aware of this ideology and criminal systems. The Jewish Establishment is caught “red handed”. There are direct verifiable links of Jewish monopoly in banks, media, politics and business in America. All evidence of their ownership and malicious systems is available in black and white. And this creates an increased…

For starters, this is not a performance worth even defending. This work and these deals are the most terrible and misdirected deals that are possible. If you know the reality behind these deals, then you yourself will laugh at the stupidity of these deals.

Rwanda: The parody of democracy

By: Jennifer Fierberg President Paul Kagame of Rwanda has sidestepped the question of running for a third term as President for the last few years.  He has eluded journalists when they have asked him specifically about his future plans and has even gone as far as insulting some reporters telling them that it was none of their business what Rwanda does.

President Obama’s Visit And Africa’s Second Uhuru

[Open Letter To President Obama] Dear Mr. President, Your trip to Africa this week presents a legacy-defining opportunity. President George W. Bush is remembered for the billions of dollars he made available to fight HIV/Aids; a program which has continued under your administration.

Mr. President,…

How Has President Paul Kagame Performed Economically Since 2000?

By: Dr. David Himbara The one-sided debate inside Rwanda that calls for 3rd presidential term for Kagame pushes the line that he is a rare and economic miracle performer. But hold on.

Stop ignoring massacres in Africa

By: Jennifer  Fierberg We live in a world filled with terrorist attacks. So much so that they become the noise of the nightly news that most Westerners ignore. Simply watching the nightly news or scanning social media for a few minutes will typically reveal the horrors of terrorism in all corners of the world. However, why do some attacks garner coverage, political marches and the response of world leaders yet others barely make the bottom corner of a news report?   Earlier this year in Paris, terrorists murdered 12 members…

A dream in tatters: former Rwanda aide says he has faced threats

  ANDREW FRANCIS WALLACE / TORONTO STAR Order this photo Over the past four years, David Himbara says he has been the target of a failed assassination attempt and a failed kidnapping bid in Kenya. Today, David Himbara lives in partial fear — and with no hope of ever returning to Rwanda. At least, not so long as Paul Kagame remains president.   David Himbara is the kind of chief of staff any president would die to have. Loyal, dedicated, committed and extremely hard working. I know for I saw him…
