My Letter to UC Irvine School of Humanities Re: Sekou Odinga

Gary Fouse

This week I posted an article on the speaking appearance at UC Irvine by Sekou Odinga aka 
Nathaniel Burns.

Below is how the School of Humanities represented Odinga in their event announcement.


Below is the text of an email I have sent the School of Humanities this morning.

Speaker, Sekou Abdullah Odinga 
Department: African American Studies 
Date and Time: February 10, 2016 - 4:00 PM 
Event Location: HIB135 
Event Details 
"Sekou Abdullah Odinga grew up in Jamaica, Queens-New York in a family of nine. 
He is a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.  He was inspired by 
the revolutionary principles of Malcolm X when he joined the Organization of 
Afro-American Unity, followed later by the Black Panther Party and the Black 
Liberation Army. He is a Muslim, a citizen of the Republic of New Afrika and for 
thirty-three years was a U.S. held political prisoner of war. In 2009, Sekou 
reached his mandatory release date for his federal conviction in connection to 
the Liberation of Assata Shakur - living in exile in Cuba - and was "paroled" to 
the New York State prison system. After five years, he won a parole hearing and 
was released on parole on November 25th, 2014 from the New York State sentence." 
Let's set the record straight. Odinga was connected  to the 1981 Brinks truck 
robbery in Nyack NY that left two police officers and a Brinks guard dead. Two 
days later, he was arrested during a shootout with police who were looking for 
the killers. He was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to 33 years in 
prison. He was not a political prisoner of war. 
Odinga is free to exercise his First Amendment right of free speech wherever he 
likes, but let us not misrepresent who he is."

UC Irvine Hosting 1981 Brinks Holdup Convict

Gary Fouse

On February 10, the African Studies Dept. at UC Irvine will be hosting Sekou Abdullah Odinga as a speaker. Here is how Odinga is being advertised:


Here is the rest of the story on Odinga, whose birth name was Nathaniel Burns. He was involved in the 1981 Brinks truck robbery in New York that left two cops and a Brinks guard dead. It was apparently not his only robbery. Burns was actually convicted of attempted murder as a result of a shootout with police linked to the Brinks robbery that had taken place just days earlier. He spent 30 years in prison calling himself a "prisoner of war".


All I can say is this: This guy has the right to come at speak at UCI or any other school. (He apparently has been making the rounds: UCI, UC Berkeley, and  UC San Diego to name a few. I wonder who is paying for all this.) But shame on the African Studies Department at UCI for choosing him as a speaker. And shame on them for their false and laudatory bio of this criminal.

news roundup

Australia's biggest Islamic School could close after losing $20 MILLION in government funding because they cant show how they spend their money

Australia's biggest Islamic School has been stripped of $20 million in government funding following allegations that its money was not being used just for education. Malek Fahd Islamic School in Greenacre, south-west of Sydney, which has more than 2,400 students, could be forced to close its gates after the Federal Government said it would withdraw the funding.

On Monday, the Department of Education issued a notice to the Islamic institution - revoking its Commonwealth funding - with the move placing hundreds of teaching jobs on the line. Education Minister Simon Birmingham said that the funding will be axed as of April 8 after the school had failed to address how the money was being spent, as required under the Education Act.


George Osborne's psychiatrist brother had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a vulnerable patient

The psychiatrist brother of Chancellor George Osborne has admitted having sex with a vulnerable patient under his care, a disciplinary panel heard today. Dr Adam Osborne, who is currently suspended by the General Medical Council (GMC), admitted that he had engaged in an 'inappropriate' emotional and sexual relationship with the woman, despite being her private psychiatrist . The woman, referred to as Patient A, had been under Dr Osborne's care between February 2011 and late 2014 and had a history of mental ill health. It is not the first time the younger brother of the Chancellor has been in the spotlight for medical failings. In 2010 he was suspended from practising medicine for six months after writing fraudulent prescriptions for a girlfriend, a family member and an escort girl whilst a psychiatry trainee at Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester.


Europe builds another wall: Macedonia erects second barrier of razor wire to stem the human tide from Greece

Macedonia has begun building a new razor-wire fence parallel to an existing one on its border with Greece to make it harder for migrants to enter the Balkan country. Since November only refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq have been allowed to cross the border on their journey to western Europe, but migrants from other countries have still tried to get across. 'The idea is to send a message to migrants that there is a double fence so give up crossing illegally,' a senior army official said.


'Migrants are pushing NHS to breaking point': Top cancer doctor warns health tourists are bleeding hospitals dry with demands for treatment

The NHS has been left 'on its knees' by uncontrolled migration from the EU, a leading cancer expert will warn tomorrow. Professor Angus Dalgleish, the principal of the Cancer Vaccine Institute, says the NHS is being bled dry of resources by health tourists denied care at home. Cancer treatment can cost £200,000 and, under Brussels rules, Britain has to offer it to all EU nationals.


Australians to pay £200 for NHS care EU migrants get for free: Antipodeans left incensed by decision to make them pay if they stay for six months or more

Britain has been accused of delivering a ‘slap in the face’ to Australians and New Zealanders by imposing a £200 annual charge for access to the NHS. Antipodeans are incensed that they are being asked to make the new payment for NHS services while Eastern European migrants from inside the EU have limitless free access. They were previously exempt because of a reciprocal agreement with Britain.


Jailed for 143 years: Depraved gang of Asian men who raped and abused 13 year old girl

A depraved gang of Asian men who raped and abused a vulnerable 13-year-old white schoolgirl have been jailed for a total of 143 years. The teenager was a virgin when she was sexually exploited for the men’s own “selfish, sexual gratification” after she was groomed by a teenage ringleader she believed was her boyfriend. The girl was passed around and used by the group of “nasty” men by Ahmed Al-Choudhury who first raped the girl was she was just 12. She told a jury how he was aged 15 and became angry when she tried to refuse sex calling her “a little white b*****d” and “you little white slag” before attacking her.


Corbyn urged to act against 'systematic misogyny' of Muslim men in Labour party

Jeremy Corbyn has been urged to act following allegations that women are being 'undermined and sabotaged' by Muslim men in the Labour party. A women's organisation from Birmingham have accused Labour of 'turning a blind eye' to Muslim men who they say are preventing Muslim women from standing in local council elections. The Muslim Women's Network UK have called for a public inquiry into 'smear campaigns' against women such as Fozia Parveen, who claims she was blocked from becoming a councillor in Birmingham in 2008.

[...] Shaista Gohir, chair of MWNUK, claimed that 'systematic misogyny' infected the whole of the Labour party, including high-ranking officials who were aware of the situation and guilty through inaction. She said: "As this is an open secret and has been going on for decades, we can only assume that the Labour party has been complicit at the highest levels. "How do men who do not want Muslim women to be empowered or have a voice remain in power unless the Labour party allows it?"


PC gone mad: NASA accused of censoring Christians 'after BANNING the word Jesus'

NASA bosses have been accused of censoring Christian employees after allegedly banning the word 'Jesus'. US lawyers have claimed a group of Christians at the organisation were told to stop using His name in a newsletter. The JSC Praise & Worship Club, which gathers every week to pray and read the Bible, placed an advert in the email to promote a meeting. It said: "The theme for this session will be 'Jesus is our life!' Prayer partners will be available for anyone who has need."

Jeremy Dys, a lawyer for the Liberty Institute, said: "It is illegal for the government to censor the name of Jesus from emails authored by employees. "Preventing a religious club's announcement just because it contains the name 'Jesus' is blatant religious discrimination. "We call on NASA to end their censorship and apologise."


'My son cries himself to sleep' Mother tells of pool rape by migrant 'desperate for sex'

The mother of a 10-year-old boy brutally raped by an Iraqi migrant in a swimming pool cubicle says her son cries himself to sleep every night. The migrant brutally attacked the child in the cubicle of the Resienbad pool in Vienna, Austria, leaving him in need of hospital treatment. And now the mother of the boy, identified only by her first name Dunja, 43, said her blood boiled when she heard the man told police the attack was an "emergency" because he had not had sex in months. The mother arrived in Austria herself as an immigrant from Serbia during the Civil War that saw the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. She said she had always taught her five children to offer the same hospitality to new arrivals that she had herself received but added: “I now regret that.”

Who Needs Protection From Whom?

Gary Fouse

Shari Goodman of Act for America in Calabasas (California) has penned the below op-ed in the Canada Free Press in reaction to President Obama's visit to a Baltimore mosque this week. Contrary to what Obama said during his visit, American and Canadian Muslims are not in danger and don't need protection from anyone. However, there are a lot of people around the world who do need protection from Muslims.


Thanks, Shari.

Why Did Obama Choose the Baltimore Mosque?

Gary Fouse

Today, President Obama spoke at the Islamic Society Mosque of Baltimore. He spoke about Islamophobia. Apparently, he neglected to speak about the plight of Middle Eastern Christians who are being slaughtered by Muslims. Nor did he speak of Christian churches being burned in Egypt. Nor did he speak of the attacks against Jews in Europe-by Muslims.

Obama is also facing criticism over his particular choice of this mosque. Breitbart has some background information which centers around its former imam.


But there is much more to the ISB than ex-imam Mohamad Adam El-Sheikh. The Investigative Project on Terrorism, the encyclopedia of Islamic radicalism in the US, has much more on ISB, information on associations and statements that brings us up the present day.


Why could Obama not have considered a mosque with no past history, perhaps the mosque that Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser attends in Phoenix? The Obama administration, in its Muslim outreach, has ignored Jasser and his organization, The American Islamic Forum for Democracy. To be fair, the Bush administration also reached out to so-called moderate Muslims after 9-11, and now we are writing about some of these people who stood next to the president and talked of moderation. Some are in jail.

But what else would you expect from Obama? He has said next to nothing about the Christians being slaughtered in the Middle East. His refugee programs have all but ignored them while they work to being tens of thousands of  Muslim "refugees" from Syria and Iraq, some of whom will surely turn out to be ISIS terrorists.

I sympathize with innocent American Muslims who just want to be accepted and who mean us no harm. The fact remains that hate crimes against Muslims are much lower than crimes against Jews. With few exceptions, Americans have acted with restraint. What has given rise to charges of Islamophobia is the ever-increasing discussion among ordinary people who are trying to figure out why all these horrific things are happening. This discussion cannot be stopped (though the Europeans can try under their draconian hate speech laws).

President Obama may have gone to the Baltimore mosque with the best of intentions. With his choice of mosques, he did not help the situation.

Who Are You Gonna Blame Now, Hillary?

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Squid

Hillary Clinton is running out of people to blame for being politically motivated when it comes to her email scandal. The State Department has now admitted that certain Clinton emails contained classified material. The below article is from the Washington Post-hardly a right-wing news outlet.


One can only wish the the Post was dedicating resources to this story as they did during Watergate, but it is good to know that more readers are seeing the story in print.

"The Friday announcement was significant because it appeared to undercut Clinton’s argument in recent months that she was merely the victim of a bureaucratic squabble between overly strict analysts at the intelligence agencies and more reasonable reviewers at the State Department."

Hillary and her camp are now not just blaming Trey Gowdy and the Republicans. Now they are taking shots at the intelligence community. Soon they will be blasting the FBI.

Is everybody out there politically motivated to bring down poor Mrs Clinton?

And isn't it a hoot that the Clinton campaign is calling for the State Department to release the contents of those 22 emails mentioned in the latest report? For reasons of transparency, no less. They know full well that those emails cannot be released to the public because of their stated sensitivity. How disingenuous!

The late Christopher Hitchens, I recall, wrote a book about Bill Clinton entitled, "No one left to lie to".  That, of course, has applied to Hillary for a long time. Soon it will be, "No one left to blame."

Rome Covers Its Statues to Not Offend Rohani

Gary Fouse]

Photo published for Rohani a Roma:coperte alcune statue di nudi musei capitolini - Politica
"Is he gone? Can we come out now?"

It's the biggest cover up in Italy since the Vatican Bank scandal. With Hassan Rohani, the President of Iran (Yes, they have one), coming on a state visit to Rome, Italian officials decided that all those nude statues in the Capitolini Museum, where Rohani met the Italian president, Matteo Renzi, Monday, had to  be covered up. They couldn't offend the moral sensibilities of Rohani, you know. (Somebody might get killed.) They have, however, offended many Italians.


I note that Rohani also met with the Pope. No word on whether he visited the Colosseum. I;m sure he must have since he would surely love to see where the Christians were fed to the lions.

Here is the report from La Stampa (in Italian) It focuses on Renzi's aide, Ilva Sapora, who is under fire not only for the statue controversy, but a number of other gaffes.
