|Politics / Re: US Electoral System Does Not Meet Democratic Standards - Russia by tundess: 5:31pm On Jan 07|
Making America Great Again
Even a faux democracy like Putin's circus can now lob bombs at US democracy under this administration.
How the mighty have fallen......
Imo, the best thing Trump can do is pardon Assange, Manning and Snowden to restore his tattered reputation as a "patriot" as opposed to a divider-in-chief. The same people the right excoriated as "traitors" for years

Francois Hollande, Jeremy Corbyn and Podemos are "socialist". Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders et al are NOT socialists
Anyway, whatever crumb of comfort in these dark days would do I suppose. I felt the same way in Jan 2017
|Politics / Re: Sagay: Allow Nigerians To Carry Arms To Defend Themselves by tundess: 7:12pm On Dec 29, 2020|
Sagay is admitting Buhari has failed. Danjuma prescribed same prior and was pilloried.
Buhari has Failed on the single most emotive issue he campaigned against Jonathan with; Security.
A General has failed in his core speciality.
What other failures are there that have been concealed from us, the general public ? We know he has failed on the economy. That is glaring and tangible.
Sagay has played the part of confusionist in this admin well, particularly wrt to legal issues, doing legal gymnastics to disguise distortions of precedent by Malami.
But, he's still there, collecting Lucre and now making pronouncements for the sake of "prosperity".
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Trump's Administration Is "Irresponsible" - Joe Biden by tundess: 6:50pm On Dec 29, 2020|
This makes sense only if you believe a country of 6 million should dictate the foreign policy choices of a nation of 340 million when dealing with a region of the world to which 2 billion people subscribe to the religion.
Israel IS THE DEEPEST state you can belong to. Also, what to make of Trump's own boast that his administration has ordered $2 trillion of new military equipment and weapons systems ? This is at odds with your attempt to characterise him as some "peacemaker". The ME peace you give him credit for is predicated on containing Iran, a foreign policy objective of the GCC nations led by the autocratic Saudi Arabia. If there is one thing you should know about Iran is their resilience since 1979.
And what was his tantrum towards NATO really about ? Weapons purchases and Germany's decision to seek energy supplies from Russia.
He didn't start any wars but accelerated the nuclear programs of North Korea AND Iran, thereby limiting US strategic options. His belligerence against both nations have flopped.
Corporate Tax breaks and historic Wall Street highs benefit who if not the 1% ?
You've just come on here and regurgitated FauxNews points that even they have abandoned. Jimmy Carter didn't start any wars either and yet is widely derided by conservatives as a weakling. Now, not starting wars is seen as some badge of honour by the same critics of Carter.
The greatest gift Trump gave to the world was exposing American coercion across a broad range of policies and making the rest of the world understand that whether Malawi or Norway, your interests must always come first.

|Politics / Re: General Ali Commends Yahaya Bello For Brutally Fighting Crime In Nigeria by tundess: 10:32pm On Dec 27, 2020|
The General prostituted the credibility of his uniform for a few kobo.
Yahaya Bello has zero credibility on any matter with Nigerians. His principal achievements are his infamy in governance, election thuggery the likes of which Kogites have never seen and the celebration of building his personal homes in Abuja. Whatever tables exist for statistics at the state level, Kogi regularly occupies the bottom third during his tenure.
The man is a pimple on the consciousness of Nigerians.
|Politics / Re: Insecurity: Reps Drop Buhari Invitation, Apologise To Presidency by tundess: 9:27am On Dec 27, 2020|
Some ppl were #occupyNass and #bbog -ing to foist this buffoon and his cronyism on the nation.
All this hue and cry about insecurity has achieved exactly nothing.
Service chiefs are still there; rural North is bandit country; BH alive, experienced, splintered; army demoralised and poorly led; govt is more invested in propaganda than fact etc
Oby told you the reason Buhari can never appear; He has dementia. He cannot participate in a Q n A session bc he can't remember what you asked 5 mins prior nor how he answered 5 mins later. We are in a marionette presidency. Lawan and Femi occupy lofty offices but are political lightweights whom serve their benefactors.
So nothing will change.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Vladimir Putin's New Secret £200million Palace In 'Billionaire's Village' by tundess: 2:47pm On Dec 18, 2020|
Can this guy retire ? To whom will he entrust Russia's future ?
The Tsar, Lenin, Stalin, Krushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov, Gorbachev- all leaders with succession problems. Only Yeltsin has managed it with success.
Putin will face a similar challenge. As someone once wrote, "he (Putin) has constructed a bomb only he knows how to defuse".......
His personal wealth rivals the gulf potentates combined. MBS is a small boy compared.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Electoral College Confirms Joe Biden As Next US President by tundess: 1:31am On Dec 15, 2020|
Someone above wrote about battle for "soul of the world".
Ask Roy M Cohn. He knew a sulphurous soul when he saw one.
He was Don Jnr's biggest hype man in the 1980s. Even got Jnr's sister appointed a federal prosecutor with Reagan. Tried to hype him to negotiate disarmament with the Gorbachev regime during that time too. And got laughed out the office by real conservatives like Reagan.
Btw, Cohn was a screaming gay and a coke fiend who died of AIDS.
|Politics / Re: President Buhari Condemns Attack On Katsina School, Orders Army, Police To Act by tundess: 5:52pm On Dec 12, 2020|
Like the past IGP acted when asked to deploy to Makurdi in the height of the Fulani herdsmen invasion of Benue ?
Or act like how Burutai acted after Chad humiliated Nigeria by liquidating BH frm Chadian territory ?
Prof. Zulum recently said Buhari was an improvement frm past times on security issues. Either the prof was lying or was intoxicated when he uttered such arrant nonsense.
|Health / Re: Pfizer's COVID-19 Vaccine Data Stolen In Europe by tundess: 5:43pm On Dec 10, 2020|
Fancy Bear or Anonymous or some St. Petersburg troll farm network will "publish an exclusive" of the stolen cache showing that one of the side effects is that the vaccine causes you to become a paedophile, especially seeing as Clinton, Bush and Obama have vowed to take the vaccine on tv
Chinese steal data for commercial gain ; Russia hacks data to undermine western institutions and society. And we now know there are enough gullible ppl out there that mutter about "deep state" and vast conspiracies to believe every Kremlin claim.

|Celebrities / Re: Azealia Banks Slams TSR Owner, Angela Nwandu: Asks Her To Focus On Nigeria by tundess: 11:16am On Dec 09, 2020|
If you go to moorinformation and see the comments frm AAs on how newly "immigrant" Africans allegedly look down on them (AAs) and the general agreement that Africa is a s######e undeserving of their recognition in their struggle and that pan-africanism is a myth, you'd be shocked.
This is all trending frm the FBA (foundational black american) designation started by Tariqlite to distinguish frm African-American bc of the superior attitude taken by immigrants towards their kin folk.
It's a sad reflection as much on AA society in the US that these kinds of attacks on Africa are occurring as much as black Africa has failed.
Angela Nwandu publishes about celebrity beef. She was born and bred in LA. The entire youth culture (her target audience) revolves around frivolities abt who is dating who and materialism. Her writing about Nigeria will not sell. Ms. Banks has an axe to grind. And that grind chimes with increasing numbers of AA ppls experiences with newly immigrant african peoples. The disillusionment is two way.

|Politics / Re: Fayemi: Service Chiefs Want To Retire But Buhari Hasn’t Give Them Directives by tundess: 9:44am On Dec 07, 2020|
Fayemi sez as President he would ask these retiring failures to name their successors.
In other words he will choose their protégés to continue failing.
Does Fayemi have a mind of his own ? Or is everything to him abt media image and "progressive" positioning ?
A completely gutless ditherer.
He'll be as bad as PMB, just spks better.
|Politics / Re: Governor Darius Ishaku Playing Golf (photos) by tundess: 10:54pm On Dec 06, 2020|
Top 2 in worst gov league table.
And that swing has perhaps 5 degrees of rotation.
Spent abt 3 months in Abuja governing by proxy on "sick leave".
Wants to overturn state consensus of rotation for the governorship. On his whim ( selection for concealment of looting ).
Even a disabled Suntai (RIP) has more capability than this village hut "architect".

|Politics / Re: Inside Niger Delta Creeks Where The Youths Are Raking In Millions by tundess: 5:38pm On Dec 05, 2020|
Self fulfilling prophesy.
Polluted waters and land bc of prior systematic unethical practices by oil majors slowly eroded all employment opportunities driving youths to engage in illegal refining which in turn increases pollution which in turn leads more to engage in the illicit trade of artisanal refining which leads to greater pollution.
Exhibit A of the leadership failure of FGN over 5 decades and counting.
This area will not recover it's natural ecosystem for a century or more. The question is whether Nigeria as a country will survive that long.
|Politics / Re: Buratai: Terrorism May Persist For Another 20 Years In Nigeria by tundess: 1:06am On Dec 04, 2020|
Chief of Army Staff version of "transmission, I mean transmission, commission, I mean.....transmission."
Watch his interview with Sakur on Hardtalk. You will know this man is incapable even of writing this admission of failure. Yet is very loquacious when it comes to addressing unarmed marching Shi'ites or #endsars protesters.
"International actors" now is the reason for the 'untechnical victory' BH and affiliated jihadists are having a field day ?
PMB needs to be evaluated. Why ? Bc he believed all this man's assessments for so long. Or he was misled. Or both. Bc there is no way this chap should still be in a job.
|Politics / Re: 2023: We Will Bring Prominent Leaders, Youths Into PDP - Saraki by tundess: 9:12am On Dec 03, 2020|

And same Saraki will turn around and recommend himself as best placed "unity" candidate for PDP in 2023.

If failing upwards was a person, you'd see Burutai's picture as illustration. Actually, tag all the service chiefs and NSA by that phrase.
I thought you couldn't get worse than Ihijerika but here we are.
To know how inept Burutai is, watch his HardTalk interview with Stephen Sackur.
|Business / Re: Demolition: 6,000 Traders To Lose Shops At Kaduna’s Unguwan Rimi Market by tundess: 8:17am On Dec 01, 2020|
Ppl on here praising Kaduna becoming Abuja.
The next 3 governors will not be able to repay all the loans this governor has incurred without massive, business- hindering taxes. Couple that with incessant insecurity.
Even maintaining these by-passes to nowhere without tolls will be a challenge.
El-Rufai has beggared future leaders of the state on the paved road of his presidential ambition.
Nice pictures though
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Arizona State Certifies Joe Biden's Win by tundess: 11:31pm On Nov 30, 2020|
Some Trumpets suffering acute covidiocy will come on every Trump quoted tweet to tell us, frm Maryland Bar and Grill in Nnewi not Md, USA, that "CNN sheeple", should know that "demon-crats, Da Deep State, liberals, China and snowflake simp f'tards" "Dominion'd" their way by FRAUD to "win" the election.
I don't know why they believed using Breitbart words would make their ranting any more persuasive in our climes.
Democracy works when the actors have the stigma of shame in the electoral process to admit defeat. America's democracy was stress-tested and has emerged battered and unexceptional.
Wait till that guy in Cameroon/Uganda refuses to concede, citing Trump. It's only then we'll know how low in credibility America sank under Trump.

In November, El-Rufai said "Zoning will not solve Nigeria's economic woes".

Believe this Janus on any issue at your own peril.
He positions as the wind blows, posing as progressive when it suits the public mood and metamorphosing into a fundamentalist an hour later. His autocratic tendencies don't remain submerged for long, however; like his decision, bc of expediency, to run a Muslim-Muslim guber ticket diktat ; Or his neglect of his Southern constituents in the appointment of commissioners ; Or his advocacy of Fulani shibboleth of generational revenge ; Or his umbrage at being disinvited to the NBA AGM when he has spent his entire governorship persecuting lawyers with spurious lawsuits designed to intimidate and silence criticism and ignoring court orders in his treatment of Sheikh Zak Zaky
Now he has a credibility issue like the entire political class and twists in the wind looking for a relevant subject to stay in the public eye.
His state is a prototype for the process of "somalization" of Nigeria. "Seemingly" prospering urban areas and ungoverned space of banditry, ethnic strife and lawlessness beyond.
Police carry VIP wives bags. Are you immune to this disease ? Why will you not take up Shehu Sani's market walk challenge, sans body guards ?

|Politics / Re: PDP Sets Up National Reconciliation Committee by tundess: 12:14pm On Nov 24, 2020|
Reconciling what exactly ?
Any committee in which Saraki is appointed as a chair always ends up being manipulated by him to his advantage, either financially or politically or both.
Frm his time as Chairman NGF to Senate Presidency to directing Atiku's latest failed Presidential election committee.
What msg does the party seeking to be an alternative to this shower currently in power hope to send when they keep rewarding this navel-gazer who betrays as readily as a woman sans culottes?
He has nothing to offer.
And it appears the party has not recognised the significance of the widespread discontent that culminated in #endsars. The party has to have a root n branch reform, the like if which none of these compromised individuals could dare suggest. Eg, party financing.
We can even conclude with a high degree of confidence what a committee of 6 that has 4 Ex Govs, all of whom failed in their states but for 1 (open judgement) will arrive at. A governor frm the North should be the flag-bearer. And Saraki will contest as sure as night turns to day.
PDP have dug their own grave. They refuse to learn frm their defeats and tell the truth to themselves. Despite all the own goals APC keep doing.
|Politics / Re: Kemi Olunloyo: CNN Stole My Investigation On Lekki Tollgate Shootings by tundess: 5:46pm On Nov 23, 2020|
Her inconsistencies and rumor-peddling frm past reporting make her "journalism" unreliable at best and salacious and tawdry at worst.
Reputation matters when dealing with such serious issues in which the accused could face international sanction. Yellow dog reporting of the type she peddles in cannot be relied upon and, as this administration is showing, they are very adept, even for "live" events, at discrediting negative news as "fake".
Instead of her to be more professional and upping her game, she's out here "clout chasing".
Was she going to credit other media houses in unearthing the truth in her reportage ? I can bet she had no such intention.
2020. The year of the narcissist.
|Politics / Re: General Taiwo: Soldiers Went To Lekki Toll Gate With Both Live And Blank Bullets by tundess: 5:23pm On Nov 22, 2020|
The Australian military is in the process of charging highly trained Special Forces soldiers engaged ON OPERATIONS against Taliban insurgents with "war crimes" for the killings of 39 people who posed NO THREAT to the soldiers. The panel of inquiry determined that there were failures of command and control at the team, unit and command levels and the killings were a part of "blooding" operators with "kills".
In one incident, witnessed by an attached US marine, someone taken prisoner was topped because there was no more room in the helicopter to take them back to be interrogated at the main base.
Compare and contrast this show of shame at the #endsars judicial enquiry in Lagos. The protesters posed NO THREAT and yet we've been fed a catalogue of lies from who authorised the deployment of soldiers to whether the soldiers were even present to whether the soldiers used live rounds or blanks to the number and extent of casualties to who/where has custody of the victims to social status of the bodies held by LASG. I emphasize that Lekki was not Helmand Province, an active battle space.
Also recall that in the US, the Defense Secretary REFUSED a presidential request to DEPLOY the military onto the streets of US cities being menaced with random looting under the guise of protests.
Australia and the US ; Nations of laws.
Nigeria ; a nation of outlaws masquerading under "constituted authority".

At least i hope so as a Gunners fan. Even D'gote, we don't want his kind of "investment". His would be federal govt shares.
Of all the Man U fans in Nigeria, not a single one has had the liver to be flagged as wanting to buy into the club. It's always Arsenal.
