Is Barack Obama A Loyal African Or A Loyal American?

09.02.14 09:01 PM

“… I stand before you as the president of the United States, a proud American. I also stand before you as the son of a man from Africa.” — Barack Obama, Aug. 5

Last month, with war looming along the Russia-Ukraine border and just two weeks before an American journalist beheaded by the ever more powerful Islamic State of terrorists known as ISIS or ISIL, the president gathered with 50 leaders of African states as well as some 350 other guests, including key members of his administration and the few supporters on Capitol Hill whom he can count on.

According to Obama, it was history-making because it was a dinner celebrating the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.

Our President, born to a Kenyan man, was busy ignoring potential global catastrophe as well as dire economic conditions so he could concentrate his attention on Africa.

Obama’s words were novel and something he seems to have felt compelled to say:
This city, this house, has welcomed foreign envoys and leaders for more than two centuries.*But never before have we hosted a dinner at the White House like this, with so many presidents, so many prime ministers all at once.*So we are grateful for all the leaders who are in attendance.*We are grateful to the spouses.*I think the men will agree that the women outshine us tonight in the beautiful colors of Africa.

I have been to Africa. Going through Soweto, South Africa, is like getting in a time machine and going backward a millennium. You might argue that’s the result of oppressive whites, but that was hardly my experience.

My father and uncle told me that the area that is now Rhodesia was an oasis when they were there on safari in 1957. When I went there with my uncle, the country — known at the time as Zimbabwe — was tribal, racist (especially toward whites) and wracked with violence.

Yet a mythical vision of Africa persists, despite centuries of genocide, corruption and self-inflicted deprivation. And it is people like Obama and black leaders in America who perpetuate it.

While making his toast (which could have been titled, “Africa is the Epicenter of Civilization”), Obama said:
I propose a toast to the New Africa — the Africa that is rising and so full of promise — and to our shared task to keep on working for the peace and prosperity and justice that all our people seek and that all our people so richly deserve.

I must have missed that part of Africa. The Africa I saw was packed with fearful whites, fearful blacks and terrible black-on-black violence.

Yet Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) — who, I suspect, lives in a gated community — was in attendance and said the dinner was “one of the most exciting things” he had ever seen.

I can conclude only that Rangel has not seen much excitement in his life or he has never been to Africa. But perhaps I’m too harsh. When a gang of black kids started to walk toward my uncle and me in Africa, I was plenty excited — and the excitement died down only when two white cops with submachine guns came around the corner.

Obama’s Ambition Is For The Black Continent To Have Green Energy

Then again, Rangel had much to be pleased about. He said, “To think that the son of an African man is hosting this event in a house built by African slaves.”

Rangel must not know his history very well because massive additions and transformations to the White House occurred in 1882, 1891, during the early 1900s and again in the 1930s. Further restorations were made during the Kennedy administration — a century after slavery ended.

Forgive this inconvenient truth: Obama is willing to bet taxpayer money that Africa, financed by the United States, will become the world’s leader in developing green energy. The president’s Power Africa program has already pledged $7 billion in government funds and leveraged loans to electrify the continent through 2018, including $500 million to modernize Ghana’s electrical grid.

The Daily Caller reported:
The more immediate goal of Obama’s power plan is to install 10,000 megawatts of new energy capacity by 2018 and connect 20 million people to the grid. Ultimately, Obama wants to bring electricity access to 600 million people in sub-Saharan Africa — where 70 percent of the population lacks access to reliable electricity.

With little more than two years to go in office, Obama is busy building his legacy and improving his golf game. He has been a dismal president when it comes to building a domestic agenda or in forging foreign policy. America is on the brink of another stock market crash, a worse recession than what we endured in 2008 and soaring oil prices because of the president’s mismanagement of the Middle East.

Obama has added more than $7 trillion in federal debt and he still has two years to waste more money on places like Africa.

This president doesn’t seem to understand that it is not his job to walk in the steps of Martin Luther King Jr., or to be an advocate for his ancestry. President John F. Kennedy was a proud Irishman and a Catholic, but he didn’t defend Catholicism and finance economic growth for Ireland. Instead, Kennedy’s agenda was:
  • To set domestic policies to grow the economy,
  • And to protect America’s vital strategic interests around the world.
In nearly six years, I have seen none of that from Obama. And given the president’s low poll ratings, tens of millions of Americans feel the same way I do. Millions of Africans may be proud of Obama, but millions of Americans loathe him. In the end, is it not what Americans need that matters?

Yours in good times and bad,

–John Myers
