While this blogger has written in support – rather, in anticipation – of a Hillary Clinton’s candidacy as the Democrats’ flag-bearer for Election 2016, that was before another candidate, Bernie Sanders, came on the scene. I am sure most Democrats would not cast their votes for any from the motley crowd that the Republican Party […]

They actually did as threatened: the U.S. Republican Party shut down government & sent USA on a tailspin – Tola Adenle

Most people believed it would not happen:  the threat by the Republicans’ fringe Right, the so-called Tea Party – to see that the government would shut down over the so-called Obamacare. Well, they’ve done it:  cut America’s nose to spite her face and in the process, have people all over the world wondering if  America’s […]

President Obama, stop calling our old man by name; call him Mzee or Madiba! – An emotanafricana commentator

Obama is the first African-American President of the United States of America. His father is from a patrilineal Kenyan nationality. In as much as he  acquired American citizenship through his American mother and birth,he is also a natural Kenyan. I am embarrassed for the US President that as he goes into his first day in […]

It’s not too early to say 2016 is Hillary’s – and women’s – chance at America’s presidency! – Tola Adenle

While savoring the giddy feeling of Obama’s re-election, the Democrats must already be looking ahead to 2016 just as the Republicans (GOP) are because there’s not a moment to lose. Hillary Clinton has acquitted herself very well as Secretary of State, and done women all over the world proud the way she handled America’s seemingly […]

I often re-check postings on this blog, especially those that I find readers viewing even several months after they have been posted. Some days ago, I found traffic on:  https://emotanafricana.com/2012/01/25/barrack-obama-a-distant-drum-suddenly-sounds-very-near-tola-adenle-august-2004/, and clicked because of the  ‘2004’  on the link but at the bottom where I always include the dates of materials from my old newspaper […]

Obama wins, we win, the world wins!  Americans say ‘no’ to narrow-mindedness, to war-mongering and ‘yes’ to the plural society that has enriched America and served it well over many decades.  The Tea Party’s end is near. President Obama, come on and take bold steps that will guarantee a great legacy that you deserve. Welcome […]

Time to take America back 12: Which Romney are we getting in Debate One? – Tola Adenle

October 2, 2012

Here is a guy that defines ‘flip flop’. The latest turn-around for Mitt is on Immigration, the two-year no-path-to-citizenship plan by Obama and with his campaign doomed by all sorts of self-inflicted wounds: the dismissal of half of the nation’s population as freeloaders who cannot be stopped from following Obama – like the Pied Piper of […]

[This is coming half a day late because in my most permanent neighborhood, getting on the web is not a matter of 1,2, turn on the laptop; 3,4, click, click, click and post… Regrets, regards, TOLA.] After the Democratic Convention in Summer 2004, I wrote four consecutive essays on the US presidential election year:  LETTERS […]
