New Appointments And ICC: Grand Coalition In Delicate Balancing Act

Parliament continues to reign supreme as the fate of nominees to the Chief Justice, Attorney General, director of public prosecutions and controller of budget offices is postponed until next week.Suspicious Kenyans will be foolish to read mischief of any kind in the delay by citing the February 27th deadline for filling position of the CJ draws near

Nowhere in the world are appointments made based solely on education and experience.There are 42 tribes in Kenya and give it to PORK, H.E. nominated a CJ from a minority group "not Kenyan enough" to avoid rocking the delicate balance of our tribal governance. Truly it is no longer business as usual.

PhDs are a dime a dozen in Kenya, not to mention the ratio of highly qualified manpower is more than the number of public posts available in government, and that is without so called affirmative action. Tribal balance must be struck so that ethnically inclined Kenyans won't accuse the coalition of sensitive government appointments being skewed in favour of one particular tribe.Ethnic and regional balance must come first in any Kenyan head hunting list before qualification, experience and expertise.

But the timing could not be any better as the speed picks up for accelerating judicial reforms to stop anyone from going to the Hague.After forcing PNU and ODM into a politcal marriage the international community is once again witness to our theatrics to to pull out of the same ICC we demanded. If only the IDPs and deceased PEV victims could resurrect out of their graves to remind us what went wrong where. NA BADO

Hosni Mubarak has refused to resign!!! Thank God for that!
For the future and destiny of Egypt, Mubarak MUST stay put!
The future of Egypt will play a major role of the return of our Lord Jesus christ, and for this REASON, Egypt will have to wait for the appointed time for democratic transtion of power to take place.

They (Egyptians) can protest all they like, but God has orcherstrated all this, and God will have the final say on the future of Egypt!

Poor Kenyans and their collective delusions.

Sometimes back, we noted this. Creation of states like Kenya was based on the utopian idea that, we could have a universal man.

Well, the truth is this. Man has lived in clans and tribes since time immemorial.

As such, the Enlightment utopia of universal man has been exposed to be just another TOWER OF BABEL which was not completed due to so many tongues (READ TRIBES).

Now, the question is this. If we have finally accepted that we are a collection of tribes which must be accomodated in state posts, which we have been running away from since 1963, does the Constitution we are implementing accept this reality?

When we look at it, we see it pretending we are Kenyans. However, as Luke confirms, we are a collection of tribes. So, how does a Constitution drafted for Kenyans work for a collection of Kenyan tribes?

From where we stand, we would recommend that, instead of so called constitution, we enact and adopt:

(a) ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION OF THE KENYAN TRIBES.

xxx

Meanwhile, for those who are awake in these dangerous times and not captured by distractions like CJ appointment, we are hearing very disturbing news which take us back to 1933 and 1934:

"the glassworkers pension fund (SPVG) was ordered by De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB, or the equivalent of the Dutch central bank), that it has to sell the bulk of its gold assets. After the SPVG refused to comply with the order, the DNB went to court and the decision has come out, siding with the central bank, ordering the SPVG to sell the required gold within two months. The pension fund, which invests for 1142 employees, in late 2009 had gold bars worth 34.6 million euros, or about 1400 kilograms."

EGYPT.
The eighty something year old Pharoah may have refused to go. He may have refused to set free the people of Egypt and let the land of Egypt thrive through liberty, democracy, and economic prosperity.

Luckly, Anubis, Anput and Kebechet will soon come to the rescue of the people of Egypt after they have consulted and determined the worthiness of Pharoah's early entry into the realm far beyond the land of Egypt.

KENYA.
In general, I am in favour of the nominee for Chief Justice being confirmed as is.

Regrettably, fresh nominees must be appointed for the positions of Attorney General, Director for Public Prosecution and C.o.B, and approved by parliament in accordance with the law of the land.

So far, some politicians who are busy trying to push the names of nominees from their own party, tribal, old boys' and business connections are like the wicked politicians of old who have oppressed ordianry Kenyans for the last five decades.

They are depraved politicians, who should be considered worse than a hailstorm that beats down the harvest, in this case, the constitution.

Before Millie Odhiambo opened her pretty mouth and posed the tribal arithmetic question,I was convinced it was the constitutionality of the nominees that were at stake. It turns out that Baba Jimmy and Baba Fidel are quarelling over "why not my people" issues.

I wonder if the same folks would react the same if CJ was Justice Lenaola, AG Abdulqadir Mohammed, controller of budget - Mwelela, and DPP - Lorot hussein as in no Luo or Kikuyu candidates. My bet is that cries for regional balance would still be so loud.

Enough is enough. Our two principle are lying through the teeth and we are happily cheering them on. The only person not consulted was Wanjiku and she is busy fighting on the basis of "consultation"

Egyptians are just pissing in the wind. Sample this. Nero appoints a guy called Frank G. Wisner II on the explicit request of president Nero Obama "to negotiate a resolution to the protest movement".

A few days, this guy says this:


it is "crucial" that Mubarak stay on in the interest of "stability", in direct contradiction of the American policy he had been asked to convey.

There you are. This guy was not sent to ask Mubarak to go, and we insist, even if he went, it SOLVES NOTHING. However, his MANDATE was was to instruct Mubarak not to to resign. Why so? As masses protest, Egypt is being FINANCIALLY LOOTED.

NB: We shall elaborate on this here once in a while how the looting is being done as we talk of so called revolution.

So, who is this Frank G. Wisner II? Well, he happens to be a member of a well known CIA family, son of the notorious spies, the late Frank Gardiner Wisner.

Why was he notorious? He was the master mind behind the CIA sponsored coup which toppled the government of Mohammed Mossadegh in Iran in 1953 so as to install Mohammad Rezā Shāh Pahlavi as "Emperor" and puppet head of state.

Now, who did Mubarak appoint the VP when riots began? The intelligence and chief TORTURER, Omar Suleiman.

What do we know of this man leading the "TRANSITION" Nero has called for?

Cables from the American embassies in Tel Aviv and Cairo show Suleiman to be the point man for collaboration with Israel in repression of the Palestinians, particularly in Gaza, where Egypt controls part of the border.

He was also the key ally for US officials in secret operations, including RENDITIONS and torture, conducted as part of the “war on terror.”

January 26, 2006—a memo to visiting FBI Director Robert Mueller noted:

“The CIA has a strong and growing relationship with the Egyptian Intelligence Service (EGIS). We believe your visit can help the FBI to establish a similarly robust and productive partnership with the State Security Investigative Service. Although they see the national interest in improving law enforcement cooperation, leaders like Omar Soliman....

And, lastly, this man Omar Suleiman, now the Egyptian vice president and putative successor to Mubarak—was described by the US Embassy as:

“the most successful element of the relationship” between the US and Egyptian intelligence agencies."

Need we say more?

Now, is this what you call people's power?

It is a COUP disguised as people's revolution. We are reading this:

Hosni Mubarak has decided to step down as president of Egypt.

Vice-President Omar Suleiman made the announcement in a brief statement on state TV.

Mr Suleiman said Mr Mubarak had handed power to the HIGH COMMAND OF THE ARMED FORCES.

xxx

Immidiately after his speech, we received this information from our sources:

"This now creates a massive crisis for the Egyptian military. Its goal is not to save Mubarak but to save the regime founded by Gamal Abdel Nasser. We are now less than six hours from dawn in Cairo. The military faces three choices. The first is to stand back, allow the crowds to swell and likely march to the presidential palace and perhaps enter the grounds. The second choice is to move troops and armor into position to block more demonstrators from entering Tahrir Square and keep those in the square in place. The third is to stage a coup and overthrow Mubarak."

Just as our sources had told us, the 3rd option has been taken.

Nebu Chad Nezzar what happened to your proclamations that "for the future and destinty of Egypt, Mubarak MUST stay put!?

Your Lord Jesus Christ was once a refugee in Egypt and I don't think he would still love to return to the same place and time of his childhood.

Mwa Rang Ethe, you laughed at the Egyptian protesters in Cairo, Alexandria and around Egypt, and even went on to claim that "Egyptians ware pissing in the wind".

Now given the turn of events, I wonder who is busy pissing at the incoming wing?

The unexpected happened, and the impossible is becoming possible in the Arab world, as the world now awaits to find out where the domino effect will curve it's downward liberation spiral around the region.

Saudi Arabia were ready to pump in billions in oil money to safeguard their comarade but to avail.

So, why waste the so much fortune betting on a dying horse rather than pump the same billions in oil money into helping the unemployed, disadvantaged, downtrodden, ophans, the homeless, the landless, and thousands and thousands of Palestian refugees living in Egypt?

The worst that would have happened in Egypt and even caused more chaos in the region, was to have hundreds of Egyptian civilian protesters killed in Cairo by their own military.

As they say, something had to give, so the Pharoah gave in and set the people free by paving way for Egypt to move on without him and his cronies.

Poor Wangari Maathai. She tried to rally others to similar protests in Nairobi but many thought she was crazy, an opportunist, a drama queen, selfish b**ch, tribal icon, and "some educated woman desperately trying to attract more attention to herself under the excuse of environmental causes so as to generate more funding for NGO" at the time.

I wonder what would have happened at the time had 70% of a 'United Kenya Womens' Front' joined in the struggle against a one a party state and a police state of the 1980s and 90s?

Congratulation goes to Egyptian citizens who have, peacefully, driven the 30-year dictatorial regime out of power in less than three weeks! Hosni Mubarak of Egypt is out of power.

The removal of brutal dictators in Sub-Saharan Africans may never be realized because of tribalism. The tribal card, used by all brutal black African dictators and their foreign allies to stay in power, have allowed these dictators to turn over the control of African resources to IMF, World Bank and other foreign financiers; leaving average African citizens like brainless walking zombies! The citizens are afraid to complain about lack of (a) passable roads (b) healthcare (c) running water (d) sewage treatments (e) housing.

The citizens cannot to complain about rising cost of everything they consume. Instead, majority of citizens, paticularly those living in cities/towns, have settled for sub-standard accommodation in the sprawling slum dwellings and refugee camps filled with poor citizens forced out of their homes due to violence orchestrated by these ruling elites. Slum dwellings and refugee camps have become accepted ways of life everywhere in Sub-Saharan Africa. The refugee camps are actually run by foreign NGOs who have contracts with the UN High Commission for Refugees or those NGOs financed by corporate war-lords who are supporting the brutal ruling elites and supplying them with weapons. At the bottom of this alliance are the resources looted by the war-lords!

Listen and listen good.

The TRUE BASIS of politics is ECONOMICS. Thus, an understanding of true economics, is a must so as to truly understand politics. Thats why almost all modern commentators on politics do not get it.

Politics of a society FUNCTION to CONTROL the ECONOMICS of that society. So, when history is well recorded, is nothing, but, the story of that process.

However, in our so called universities, POLITICS, ECONOMICS and HISTORY are typically kept SEPARATE and then further SUBDIVIDED into SUBFIELDS so as to ensure the SHEEP will never acquire the overall picture.

Got that?

How many revolutions do you think we have "witnessed?" Let us flip the dusty pages of history and open up your mind.

In 1848, a revolutionary fervour broke across Europe. The wave started in France, then, spread to Denmark, the German States, the Italian States, Belgium, Wallachia, and the Habsburg's Austrian Empire were all shaken by POPULAR REVOLT.

The causes of the 1848 revolution were, economic disparity, abuse of workers rights, and a lack of political equality. Are these not the same issues in Arab/African world?

These economic and social conditions in 1848 were brought by FUNDAMENTAL ECONOMIC CHANGES, characterized by the consolidation of wealth which caused massive unemployment as well as the outbreak of famines.

And, today? The world wide revolts are as a result of the brunt of neo-liberal ECONOMIC "reforms", rising food prices, anger over lack of employment, lack of opportunities, corrupt government practices, and rising bread and food prices. So, what is different?

More so, 1848 Frances was ruled by the landed property class, big industry, and the banking class. Do you see the same stuff today?

But, how did this TRIAD rise?
It was the working class that brought about the rise of this triad (landed property, big industry, and the banking class) through the French Revolution of 1789.

In turn, this triad or "big capital" would systematically disenfranchize the working class by eliminating universal suffrage.

Cutting short the narrative, did the 1848 revolutions succeed?

No. The working class did not secure their rights after 1848. They held briefly the seat of power. The new taxation system failed and the TRIAD class retained its control, thereby neutralizing efforts for GENUINE socio-economic reform in France.

This led up to the 1851 Paris coup that was to make Charles Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte the emperor of the Second French Empire.

What lessons can be learned from 1848?

The French Revolution of 1848 illustrates how the TRIAD can MANIPULATE the DESIRES of the working class and mainstream society.

It also illustrates that the TRIAD class was/is predominately in control of the state, despite the changes in political leadership.

Also, the outcome of 1848 in France illustrates that policies are deliberately fluctuated by organized TRIAD/OLIGARCHY as a means to LULL mainstream society.

In this context, history could/wil repeat itself in the Arab/Afrian World.

The Egyptians surely must have enjoyed pissing in the wind ama? See u know that saying that goes.. "A good deed is like pissing in your pants. Everyone knows you did it, but only you can feel the warmth".

We applaud the Egyptians for using "piss" to topple strong man Mubarak, since their constitution does not have your much favoured "right to bear arms clause" piss did just fine.

It is also with great amazement that I note that gold (1,400 Kg ) from the glass workers pension in Europe is causing you great cerebral disturbance, then this news back home in Kenya will definately transform you into a village mad man.

UK based Goldplats staks are fighting for the mining licence in the "Migori belt" which has the potential of producing 34,000 kg of gold per annum and Western regions potential is still being quantified.

Meanwhile, you have my support as per you reform agenda that you made on KK a while back of;

a) Establishing a University dedicated to Economic and Political liberty from ancient times to date

b) Introduce competitive money to state money

Well, we have news for you and others. The Egyptian people have not brought down NOTHING.

The OLIGARCHY knew the old Pharoah/Puppet had to go. So, as to save the POLICE/FEUDAL STATE, the masses have been BRAINWASHED to bring about a COUP which will lead to the DESIRED ENDS, i.e. spectator's democracy.

Look how the "TRANSITION" has been hailed from the UN and the West. Yes, the same guys talking about Ivory Coast where they sent Raila.

Why do OLIGARCHY do this? Because, they know in the words of Lord Acton, this:

"Liberty, next to religion has been the motive of good deeds and the common pretext of crime, from the sowing of the seed at Athens, 2,460 years ago..

It is the DELICATE FRUIT of a mature civilization; and ... In every age its progress has been beset by its NATURAL ENEMIES:

(a) by IGNORANCE and superstition, (b) by lust of conquest, and
(c) by love of ease,
(d) by the strong man’s craving for power,
(e) and the POOR man’s CRAVING FOR FOOD.

If you doubt this, sample this:

"Having said that, I'm not sure the time is right for the Arab region to go through the democratic process." said an Israel Minister.

Source: http://is.gd/jBl6J7

Anyway, we shall not trash anything. All we can do is leave those who think Egyptians have achieved anything, with these words of a great historian:

"IF those who have been employed before me in relating the transactions of former times, had been altogether silent concerning the USE and EXCELLENCE of HISTORY, it might, perhaps, be necessary to begin this work, with advising ALL
MANKIND to apply themselves with EARNESTNESS to that kind
of study; since the knowledge of PAST events affords the
BEST INSTRUCTIONS for the REGULATION and GOOD CONDUCT of
human life."

He also taught us that:

" ... that History supplies the only PROPER discipline, to TRAIN and EXERCISE the minds of those who are inclined to enter into public affairs; and that the evil accidents, which are there recorded
to have befallen other men, contain the wisest and the most effectual lessons, for enabling us to support our own misfortunes with dignity and courage.."

Haya, since we live in an age of IRRATIONALITY, where social decisions of importance are made in ad hoc IRRATIONAL FASHION in the STREET, we shall see the fruits of this revolution in the fullness of time.

Meanwhile, for us, let us continue enjoying our popcorn while listening to the Natural Mystic by great Bob Marley:

In fact it can be argued quite successfully that politics is *the* determining factor in all arenas human of life and organization.

Yes, but, control for what purposes? Or, to what end?

Is it control for its own sake?

You mention religion. Okay,let us visit the Sumerian priesthood. At first, their main concern was SEASONS, i.e. the solar year and the date of flods.

Why so, Because of floods which would mess their people's farms etc. What are our politicians concerned about? Is not food which is causing riots in Egypt?

To show how accurate these guys became, sample this. Kidinnu gave the length of the sidereal year as 365 days, 6 hours, 13 minutes, 43.4 seconds. This was only 4 mins. 32. 65 sec. too long.

Anyway, out of this specialised knowledge, these priests started to accumulate ECONOMIC SURPLUS.

How did this come about? The economic surplus flowed from their CONTROL, in the name of gods they served, of:

(a) a considerable part of the land of the community,

(b) tributes/taxes levied usually in KIND upon the produce of LANDS owned by others.

So, here we are. In the name of religion, these priests came to control land, and taxation (robbery) of the masses.

Today, in the name of STATE, don't they control LAND and TAXES/ROBBERY of the masses?

Isn't that special?

... and not just the production, consumption and distribution of goods and services. It is inaccurate and exceedingly narrow to suggest that economics is the source of ALL politics.

We noted, this. Economics is the basis of politics.

It should be obvious to you that, there has never been any society with a dysfunctional economic system, that has ever had well ordered politics. If you have an example, educate us.

In fact it can be argued quite successfully that politics is *the* determining factor in all arenas human of life and organization.

But, what is politics to you?

When Lenin says he is a communist politician, what do you understand by that?

Isn't obvious to you that, his economic ideas are behind his "politics?"

Isn't obvious to you that, Lenin, being a Communist, he could only organise politics in accordance with his communistic economic ideas?

If not, then, why are, or were the politics of Soviet Union different from those of the USA or Sweden?

So why turn the dusty pages of history if we still haven't learnt from history? Kenya and Egypt continue to churn out the highest number of graduate Lawyers and Historians in Africa, but for what? POLITICS and ECONOMIC control.

So until you initiate that ka Liberty university reform and introduce mwara currency to compete with state money, all the cries atop Mt. Kenya of human history will just be that, cries.

We have learnt NOTHING! From The Forbidden fruit, The floods of Noah, sumerian high priests, the death of Jesus, Prophet Mohammad,great economic depression, World War I and II, Tribal and Religious wars of them days to present, CNN, CIA, Mungikia, Mafioso etc The OLIGARCHY are here to stay.

In the application submitted to the pre-trial Chamber on January 20 this year, the former police boss sought the court’s leave to participate in the proceedings, including the right to make observations before the judges either orally or in writing on the Prosecutor’s request to issue summonses to him and his co-accused.

Major Gen (Rtd) Ali further sought to be furnished with all files presented by ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo in relation to the matter.

Judges Ekaterina Trendafilova, Hans-Peter Kaul and Cuno Tarfusser, however, rejected the application on grounds that Mr Ocampo’s request to issue summonses to the six suspects would be conducted on an ex parte basis and as such, the former police basis has no basis to be enjoined in the proceedings.

“The Chamber recalls that with respect to the very same issue it is called upon to decide in the instant decision, it has already stated that the proceedings triggered by the Prosecutor’s application for a warrant of arrest or a summons to appear are to be conducted on an ex parte basis and that under the statutory framework of the Court, there is no legal basis for a person under the Prosecutor’s investigation to submit observations at the current stage of proceedings,” the judges noted.

Besides Major Gen (Rtd) Ali, others named by the ICC Prosecutor include deputy prime minister Uhuru Kenyatta, suspended cabinet ministers William Ruto and Henry Kosgey, civil service head Francis Muthaura and vernacular radio presenter Joshua Arap Sang.

The judges’ observation came only three days after Kenya, through its Permanent Mission to the United Nations formally wrote to the UN Security Council asking for the deferral of the Hague trials.

In the letter underscoring the government’s resolve to have the cases deferred by one year, Kenya complained that the “Ocampo Six” had been stigmatised as a result of the Prosecutor’s move to name them. As a result, their chance to a fair trial had been compromised, the government further argued.

The government further argued that since the Mr Moreno-Ocampo made the names public in mid-December, there had been a growing feeling in the country that the trials will not be impartial.

It noted that the deferral of the trials would enable Kenya set up a credible judicial mechanism to try the suspects locally.

It further argued that it is committed to trying the post-election violence suspects locally and is in the process of cleaning up its Judiciary to give it the required credibility to handle the cases.

“The grant of a deferral would allow sufficient time to revamp key judicial institutions and other governance infrastructure, placing the country well beyond the threshold of the Rome Statute.

“Further, the prosecution of post-election crimes at home would send a strong message both internally and externally that Kenya will no longer tolerate impunity,” the letter read.

ICC judges reject Ali's petition

If Ali and his 5 friends were to listen to us, we would tell them to ignore this KANGAROO court and show it the middle finger.

There will be no justice from these so called international courts.

Sample this:

Milošević died in custody of the ICTY. More so, 6 other defendant at the ICTY died either in The Hague or shortly after release.

As concerns Milošević, he was in poor health, and instead of releasing him as the British did with Pinochet on compassionate grounds, or, to get treatment in Moscow, the ICTY judges used his illness as an excuse for taking the unprecedented decision to impose a defence lawyer on their most famous defendant.

During his trial, the MEDIA, ignored his brilliant and eloquent defence. But, is this surprising?

Well, we are aware that, the human rights activists who observed the Moscow show trials in the 1930s reported back that they were models of due process. We know what happened after that.

We only recall words of Charles Stuart as he was led to the gallows:

"If power without law may make laws, I do not know what subject he is in England that can be sure of his life or any thing that he calls his own."

The subsequent dictatorship of Oliver Cromwell proved he was right.

As usual, although no one will listen or understand, we hear a gathering storm. And, the price in blood and treasure will be unprecedented in human history.

Anyway, welcome to the New World Order in International Law.

The Egyptians you see on TV are not the real Egyptians - these are Arabs immigrants from Middle East who settled in North Africa! The real indigenious Eyptians and N. Africans are the Cushites or Kush people, who were the descendants of Cush, the grandson of Noah.

It's time to kick these Arabs out of Africa!!!!
Africa for Blacks!!

viva Africa!

Is Mwarang'ethe a sacred cow who ought not be touched? Can we then say that Mwarang'ethe is against everyone as he relishes on trashing everyones comments. We need more people like the Oracle who are not afraid of taking Mwarang'ethe head on. Please grow up and stop your childish behaviour. It will not be shocking that you are Mwarang'ethe under cover. Kumekucha has no monopoly.

Luka can you invoke your right to censure.

Here is a very simple thing you can do, it might help you. Just google this topic "muslims burn christian churches." then tell me which floods, taxes and so forth they were seeking to control--wherever--in the contemporary world.

Aii! What are you talking about now?

Well, well, let us give you a hint of where you should start your research on the endless wars between "Muslims" and "Christians."

Upon the great fall of the Roman CENTRALISED STATE of Caesar around 500 A.D., or thereabout from its wreckage, we got three civilisations. These are:

(a) Islamic civilization,

(b) Western civilization "headquartered" in France, and

(c) Russian civilization.

Essentially, the current "war on terror" and burning of churches that you seem to be aware of, is a continuation of battles that have lasted over 1500 years.

In the first phase, the Muslims were defeated just outside Paris in the Battle of Tours in 732 A.D.

Please, see this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztoNqerMrd8

Thereafter, within 2 - 3 centuries, the Western civilization launched a counter attack around 1000 A.D. or there about.

The decisive moment for this struggle was decided during the 1WW. Although the process had started a bit earlier, after the 1WW, the Islamic Empire/Civilization if you will, i.e. the Ottoman Empire was quashed by the West.

Since then, the "Muslims" have been working on a counter attack, and the "Christian" West is ensuring there will no counter attack.

As such, what you see today, does not tell you anything for to appreciate the forces at work, you must go back to over 1500 years of continous battle between these forces bent on enslaving humanity.

These nominations were negotiated in Eldoret with the sole reason of protecting the Ocampo SIX.

One of the nominees is Ruto's lawyer. The other one is Uhuru's advisor.

Why should we support these nominees when their hands are already tied? Can they give justice to the Kenyan public at the time it is really needed? Arent these people have their masters already?

I doubt whether these people will serve all Kenyans without prejudice.

Let's reject these people irrespective of their qualifications. We have many Kenyans better qualified.
