    The Telegraph: Stonehenge was built by black Britons, a new children’s history book has claimed. The illustrated book entitled Brilliant Black British History, by the Nigerian-born British author Atinuke, says “every single British person comes from a migrant” but “the very first Britons were black”. Readers of the newly-released book are told that Stonehenge was built while Britain was “a black country”. The book, published by Bloomsbury and promoted by Arts Council-funded literacy charity The Book Trust, states that “Britain was a black country for more than 7,000 years before white people came, and during that time the most famous...

    French President Emmanuel Macron reportedly railed against the limit on presidential terms preventing him from running for re-election in 2027 as “disastrous +-++&-_+” as his centrist globalist bloc continues to struggle to find a successor to his reign. During a closed-doors meeting with leaders of opposition parties on Wednesday in Seine-Saint-Denis, the 45-year-old leader reportedly declared: “Not being able to be re-elected is disastrous bullshit,” participants of the meeting told the Le Figaro newspaper.

    American Thinker ^ | 08/11/2023 | Raymond Ibrahim
    In a recent article, we considered the claims of Brittney Cooper, a professor at Rutgers University. She believes that all "white people," whom she also refers to as "m------------" who are "committed to being villains" — in a word, racists — need to be "taken out." One of her arguments is that, whenever non-whites try to have a "reckoning" with whites, the latter say, "It's just human nature. If y'all had all of this power, you would have done the same thing," right?To this, Cooper insists,No, that's what white humans did, white human beings thought there's a world here and...

  • Nigeria cuts electricity to Niger after coup

    Nigeria has cut its electricity supply to Niger after West African neighbors imposed sanctions on the junta that ousted the country’s elected leader last week, a Niger power company source said on Wednesday. “Since yesterday, Nigeria has disconnected the high-voltage line transporting electricity to Niger,” a source at Niger’s power company Nigelec told AFP. Niger depends on Nigeria for 70 percent of its power, buying it from the Nigerian company Mainstream, according to Nigelec, the country’s monopoly supplier.

    If one believes that the one true god has commanded such killing (cf. Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, 9:5), then to engage in it is a blessed act, and such killing would be a fitting gift to others who also believe it to be divinely commanded. “Farewell Gifts To Buhari, Ors: 700 Christians Slaughtered In May, 1,100 In 60 Days And 2,150 In 160 Days Of 2023,” by Emeka Umeagbalasi, International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, June 12, 2023: "Fulani Jihadists Slaughtered 700 Christians As “Farewell Gifts” To Nigerian Radical Islamic Leaders The Nigerian radical Islamic leaders who marked...

    A growing number of countries are coming forward to join BRICS and accept the new currency for global trade. The South African ambassador Anil Sooklal hinted that the alliance could expand this year becoming BRICS+.

The global financial order could tilt from the West to the East creating a new multipolar economy. According to the latest report, the BRICS alliance has formally received applications from 25 countries to join the bloc. The 25 nations that expressed their interest to join are...

The group was on a humanitarian mission when they were attacked in the Ogbaru Local Government Area of the country's Anambra State, one of the epicenters of separatist violence in the region, said Tochukwu Ikenga, a police spokesman in Anambra. Ikenga said no U.S. citizen was on the trip. "We confirm there was an incident May 16 in Anambra state. Mission Nigeria personnel are...

    A corruption-tainted London mansion that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration had targeted for confiscation now belongs to Nigeria's president-elect Bola Tinubu's son through an offshore shell company, which is also linked to the politician's surrogates. The property was being investigated by the Nigerian government as part of a corruption probe involving its former owner, Kolawole Aluko, who was accused of evading an oil-trading debt worth over U.S.$1.5 billion. Bloomberg reported that Oluwaseyi Tinubu is listed as the main shareholder of the company that purchased the property. Tinubu uses the property for his stay in London and photos from there became...

Little did she (one hopes) or the German public suspect what Buhari and the NCMM would do, just three months later. Gifting the restitutions to the Oba, who is bound to no enforceable curatorial standards, is controversial in the West; not least because of the campaign by black Americans who descend from slaves, and who demand that the artworks stay safe in the museums...

    Last summer, we looked at the collapse of the power grid in South Africa. The country which previously had the most economically stable and prosperous government in sub-Saharan Africa suffered waves of unemployment and looting as its economy buckled under the strain. They’ve managed to put together some foreign aid to apply patchwork fixes since then, but there are still rolling blackouts taking place on a regular basis. This winter, however, the power grid problems are spreading in one of the more underreported stories of the year. Zimbabwe and Nigeria are now also experiencing near-total collapses of their power grids....

    The Borno State Government, yesterday, said 90 per cent of die-hard Boko Haram insurgents were dead just as it attributed the mass surrender of members of the sect to the death of their leader, Ibrahim Shakau, as well as the operations of the military.

It further clarified that, contrary to insinuations of abortion of pregnancies of female terror suspects impregnated by insurgents, the military was not aware of such development,...

The illegal arms have begun to “filter” to the region, Nigeria’s president said. An urgent warning was recently issued by President Muhammadu Buhari himself. ... It marks the clearest confirmation yet that weapons intended for Ukrainian forces are exiting the country in large numbers, precisely as many observers feared given the billions of dollars worth of arms that have been pumped in over the course of the nine-month war. ...
