Rightly Guided

UPDATE: How the White House opened its doors to some of Africa's dictators | Mail Online "The red carpet was rolled out for Equatorial Guinea's Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who shot or jailed virtually all his political opponents, Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh, who threatened to ‘cut off the head’ of any homosexuals in the country and for Cameroon’s Paul Biya, who has the dubious honor of ranking 19th on author David Wallechinsky's 2006 list of the world's 20 worst living dictators.... Justice Department lawyers alleged Nguema, on top of his official government salary of $100,000, used his position to amass more than $100 million through corruption and money laundering, including a $30 million dollar mansion in Malibu, California, a $38.5 million Gulfstream jet and one of the world’s finest Michael Jackson memorabilia collections including the red and black 'Thriller jacket' and Jackson’s crystal-studded 'Bad Tour' glove worth more than $2m."

Drudge has an interesting headline up tonight (6 Aug): "White House Wined and Dined Dictators and Homophobes"

He references a UK paper at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2718143/Obamas-monsters-ball-How-White-House-opened-doors-Africas-evil-dictators-homophobes-turned-blind-eye-human-rights-record.html

Anybody seen much of this story from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, NYTimes, WaPost, BGlobe, AJConstitution, etc etc?

I didn't think so.

My thought after seeing that story: "Birds of a Feather".

Those blacks are just like their US ghetto cousins: Not interested in a thing worth having….rides, rags and bling. And bush meat.

All hail Ebola because it isn't real!!!

Pay strict heed to these dictators. They foretell what our decadent faggot leader will be like after he arranges to be leader for life. One can only hope that the reign is brief.

He just needed a little advice on how to run a country. You don't expect him to ask white people do you?
