The Federal Reserve/Central Bank/ World Bank

My take on The Creature from Jekyll Island.

The Creature from Jekyll Island  by Edward Griffin is not just a lament on the plight of Americans but a painful rendition of the new form that colonialism and slavery took that kept the agitators at bay while providing for the need of the aggressors.
The current global monetary system which have its roots in the United States Federal reserve system and is projected outward through the World Bank is nothing but a fa-card covered up in some niceties of complexity to ensure a psychological WIN -WIN while instituting an economic WIN -LOOSE situations. Where the vanquished are all member nations involved as well as the individual citizens of all nations but for the very few that that system intends to protect.
It is amazing as President Obama while aware of the pain of the citizens and the wrong headed nature of the system was unable to forge a policy that will change the course but find himself negotiating with the very people that created the creature he intends to battle and eventually surrenders to them, to yield what they might, to give him a sense of victory. Just a sense. Not real victory. Psychological appeasement.
However, a contrary view which I subscribe to discards the conspiracy theory proposition presented by Edward Griffin in The Creature from Jekyll Island, and supports the natural tendency of man to be in control. The previous monetary system which was based on the Gold Standard was rigid and restrictive to man's ability to grow and develop, and does not take into account the elastic nature of the services for which it serves as a medium of payment. Man's initiative and creative ability which has been more pronounce in today's world would have been restricted if the medium of payment was not elastic enough to accommodate both the growth in population as well the explosion of creative abilities.
Therefore there was in fact a need and a justification for the creation of a monetary system that is not only elastic but accommodates other changes in the economy. The problem lies in the kind of system that was created and where the power to control and mange its evolution lies. This is where the manipulators and cheaters of mankind found there edge and injected themselves into the management and flow of the world's monies. What has emerged is rather a strange being that frightens even the knowledgeable.

Ending Conflict In Africa

Ending conflict is rather a lofty goal that may not be easily realized but can be ebbed away by constant assertion of some key principles of human coexistence. Africa has been a continent whose people has known no stability since the age of agricultural revolution to the age of industrial revolution.
This condition has hindered growth in all sectors and areas of life in Africa.
The most striking causative factor that I wish to discuss is the fact that most African Economies are based on export of natural resources. This factor has been the source of most conflict in Africa. Leaders and aspiring leaders are motivated by the need to control large reserves of resources and secure relationships with the international companies whose origin are from the industrialized nations. These companies are in no way independent organizations hoping to do business in good faith but are in some ways a branch of the governments that they originate from.
These African leaders are crowded by the executives of these companies while being hamstring by the sponsoring government to bend rules to accommodate their desires.
This is not about blaming other countries for the woes of Africa though the industrilized world contributed a large part of this problems. This is to give clear guidlines to anyone who aspires to lead in Africa.

Key Check Points

1. Understand that the foreign companies and the foreign embassies are an umbrella for the nation they represent and have the key focus of winning by adding value to their organization and nation through the securing of natural resources to fuel investment in their various countries.

2. This understanding should guide you to care and empathize with their needs and help them to meet it.

3. In doing that you must be able to define the needs of your country- the host nation, and have clear and well defined goals and benchmarks of growth achievement that you want to see.

4. When negotiating business with these foreign investors do not focus on monetary compensations and some misguided revenue sharing process but have in addition to those a clear knowledge based training and national developmental programs and achievable and measurable goal attached to such deals. 

5. Part of your goal should include and to a large extent the development of human capital as well as the support for small business.

6. Strengthen relations with nations and Companies that work diligently to achieve the set benchmarks

The lack of knowledge of human management and organizational cohesion in government and the general populace have made it difficult to pioneer even the most thoughtful plan for development. Corruption and greed easily peels away all hopes and aspirations of those that choose to serve at the table of national development. Living them victims as well as willing partners of these vices.

The only answer I have to corruption in Africa is that more Africans should get involved in their national development. When and only when more people get involved will the force of crowd force the hand of events towards justices.

   Breaking through difficult times is one of the challenges facing immigrant to the US. The first 10 year goes a long way defining the rest of the years. Some have argued that your host family or friends on your arrival play a major role in your success in crafting a better future in the US.
   The US government and its economy is structured in such a way that whatever level you fall in the starter of the society you will be playing a meaningful role to the health of the system. It is then up to you to seek a deal that is mutually beneficial to you and the country. Achieving a mutually beneficial position in this country can be very challenging especially to Africans.
   Some of us have faced discriminatory job environment that made the search for cooperate opportunities unpleasant to the point that many who are qualified have decide not to apply for certain positions or give up after many denials and rejections. Yet it is worth noting that some brave Africans have succeeded where many failed. There have been noticeable upthick in the number of Africans getting cooperate positions as well as the number of African seeking such positions.
  Perhaps this good signs are attributable to the election of the first black President.
 What other story can you share to support this?

Below is an email dialogue I had with a flight agent from ITN. Judge for yourself if their action is discriminatory or not. Mind you there are criminals from all nationals and from all races. I just don't understand what is different about Nigerian Criminals that make all Nigerians suspect.

Dear Chiedozie,

For past few years we had over 500 fraud cases for flights originated from Nigeria. Due to this issue we ware forced not to accept Credit card payment for such flights. 
There is nothing to do with discrimination Sir. We are trying to protect our customers from any type of fraud and this is only reason why Credit card payment is not acceptable for such flights. 
As an alternative form of payment we can accept PayPal payment but in this case price for the ticket would be 4% more expensive as company would cover PayPal expenses. 

I do apologize for any inconvenience cased but there are no exceptions and I have to follow our company rules. 

If you have any objections please write an e-mail to info@itncorp.com and one of our staff members will get back to you shortly.  

Thanks and have a great day

Kind Regards,
Susan

Hello Susan,

I thank you for your help so far getting me some flight options. However, I am still concerned about your company's discriminatory policy towards Africans.  If your company can accept payment through credit/debit card from US resident's then you should be able to accept those payments from any US resident irrespective of where they are traveling from. Singling out some African countries as places where you will not accept such payments if flight are originating from there is discriminatory and unfair. I will have to have some more concrete reason to accept that policy and deal with your company.
Therefore,  I have decided not to proceed with doing business with you until such a time I get some answers why this policy is in place.

Voting Rights Act Supreme Court Case: Scalia Condemns The 'Perpetuation Of Racial Entitlement' (UPDATE)

If the Supreme Court strikes down the voting right act based on States right what then will it do when individual right to vote is threatened, demand the individual bring a case to it?

Fiscal Cliff? Benghazi?

It is chillingly cold to observe two top republican senators this morning in their news conference discussing not the so called fiscal cliff but aimless digging to find a possible scandal over the Libyan attack. Can they really continue to dig around for what to discredit the President about rather than moving the country forward? The President is not running for re-election and he can keep in place what he has already accomplished and still be successful and respected by most Americans, even as more people will blame the republicans for whatever goes wrong for their non cooperation with the Dems.

The Tea Party Lost the Debate

A lot has been said about the re-election of President Barack Obama as the evidence of the changing demography of the American electorate but I will argue that his re-election is a verdict on the agenda of the "Tea Party" and the inability of the Republican party to logically defend that agenda in the debates. Yes, it was roundly agreed that Mitt Romney won the first debate but he did not win that debate by presenting a logical reasoning behind his already established campaign positions rather he won the debate by denying his previous positions while making his opponent look awkward by even mentioning those positions in the debate.
It only took the President some reflection and study of Mr Romney's previous statements and policy positions to nail him in the subsequent debates to the point of non denial. Mr Romney became so uncomfortable in the third debate that he even expressed frustration that the President was attacking him in his positions, thereby looking very little in front of a determined Obama who was non relenting in his effort to "sink Romney's war ship!"
