Rise Up Ye Africans!

“Trump insulted the entire continent of Africa in his comments as well, leading to fierce reaction on Twitter.

Kenyan activist and politician Boniface Mwangi said “how America elected a narcissist, racist, white supremacist to be their president defies logic.”

“Africa sends love and light to America,” he added.

South African journalist Leanne Manas tweeted “good morning from the greatest most beautiful ‘shithole country’ in the world!”

US President Donald Trump’s complaints about immigrants coming to the US from “shithole countries” prompted condemnation from around the world.

In the US, Democrat and Republican lawmakers criticized Trump’s comments as “divisive” and “unacceptable,” while Haiti, one of the countries explicitly named by Trump, summoned the top US diplomat to discuss the President’s remarks.

Trump’s remarks come as Haiti prepares to commemorate eight years since a 7.0-magnitude earthquake killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced many more.

As a result of the disaster, citizens of Haiti were accorded Temporary Protected Status, granted to individuals from countries where conditions such as war, natural disasters or political strife prevent citizens from returning safely.

Former Haitian President Laurent Lamothe said the “world is witnessing a new low today” and called Trump’s remarks “totally unacceptable!”

“It shows a lack of respect and ignorance never seen before in the recent history of the US by any President,” Lamothe tweeted.

As the US ambassador position in Haiti is vacant, the charge d’affaires at the embassy, Robin Diallo will meet with President Jovenel Moïse Friday, a senior State Department official told CNN.

Nepal, which became a Temporary Protected Status nation after an earthquake in 2015, said authorities were discussing their response to the matter.

The country’s Foreign Minister Bharat Raj Paudyal told CNN “we are aware of President Trump’s comments, and our ministry is discussing the matter.”

On Twitter, former Mexican President and longtime Trump critic Vicente Fox said the US leader’s mouth “is the foulest shithole in the world.”

“With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not. America’s greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?” he said.

David Miliband, president of the International Rescue Committee and former UK Foreign Secretary, said the “Trump Administration (is) leading a race to the bottom on refugees and immigrants that is a betrayal of America’s future as well as of its history.”

Trump insulted the entire continent of Africa in his comments as well, leading to fierce reaction on Twitter.

Kenyan activist and politician Boniface Mwangi said “how America elected a narcissist, racist, white supremacist to be their president defies logic.”

“Africa sends love and light to America,” he added.

South African journalist Leanne Manas tweeted “good morning from the greatest most beautiful ‘shithole country’ in the world!”

President Trump acknowledged Friday that he used “tough” language during a meeting on efforts toward a bipartisan immigration deal but appeared to deny using the term “shithole” to refer to some countries.

The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made — a big setback for DACA!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Spokespeople for the White House did not immediately respond to a request for clarification Friday. The White House had not denied Thursday that Trump used the vulgarity, first reported by The Washington Post and later confirmed by numerous other news outlets.

In a later tweet, Trump focused on remarks attributed to him about Haiti, saying, “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said ‘take them out..’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!” 

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), one of the lawmakers who attended the meeting, said publicly in comments to reporters Friday in an interview aired on MSNBC that Trump’s denial was false.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan celebrated the news that President Trump would not be visiting the city, saying Trump had “got the message” from Londoners who “have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here.”

“It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the poor opposite of our city’s values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance,” Khan said in a statement Friday.

“His visit next month would without doubt have been met by mass peaceful protests,” Khan continued, adding he hopes that Trump “also revisits the pursuit of his divisive agenda.”

Nazarite Zulu of Drakensberg Mountain

One can conclude that God GAVE His answer when I asked if He came to America. Did God visit his Nazarites in South Africa where the comet Lovejoy is very visible?

After I declared myself a Nazarite, and baptized myself in 1987, I got on the internet and looked for other Nazarites. Was I all alone? I found Nazarites in the land of the Zulu that lie in the shadow of the Drakensberg mountain range where I want to be with my Nazarite brothers and sisters – beholding an amazing site, a pillar of smoke and fire like the one Moses beheld during the Exodus?

Is it possible a comet came and struck the earth causing a tidal wave that destroyed Pharoah’s army? The Drakensberg mountains is where the new Exodus arrives in 2012. I suspect the Nazarites carried the Ark of the Covenant on the Jubilee.

I wrote the Shembe Zulu church and introduced myself.

Jon the Nazarite

He had no formal education. During his youth he became famous as a visionary prophet and healer. He was baptized into the African National Baptist Church (1906), but later broke away to found the Nazirite Baptist Church (1911). Five years later he announced some revelations. He established a holy village near Durban and developed into one of the most prominent Zulu figures of his time. On his death in 1935 he was revered as a black messiah. His son Johannes Galilee Shembe inherited leadership of his church. Johannes – a Fort Hare College graduate – lacked his father’s charisma, and had trouble maintaining his leadership. Nevertheless, he still had 80 000 adherents in 1970.

The pillar of fire by night remained with them until they reached the promised land. The pillar of fire was a symbol of divine guidance and was also God’s way of supplying light for his people during the night.
The pillar of fire by night and cloud by day stayed with the Israelis from leaving of Egypt and arriving in the promised land the time covered about thirty eight years.

The pillar of fire produced enough light so they could travel by night. Traveling by night is cooler.
The pillar if light must have some unusual properties to enable over three million people and stock light to see were they were traveling at night.

Pillar of Fire by night
21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. 22 Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.

The Drakensberg (Afrikaans: Drakensberge, Dutch: Drakensbergen, “the Dragon Mountains”) is the highest mountain range in Southern Africa, rising to 3,482 metres (11,424 ft) in height. In Zulu, it is referred to as uKhahlamba (“barrier of spears”), and in Sesotho as Maluti (also spelled Maloti). Its geological history lends it a distinctive character amongst the mountain ranges of the world. Geologically, the range resembles the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia.

Any of you who have seen the popular documentary “2012” will know that when the catastrolypse strikes, worldwide devastation on an epic scale will ensue. Even a smaller catastrophe like a simple massive cometary impact could cause significant inconvenience to those living in the areas destroyed by hypersonic shock waves. What can you do to avoid either – and hopefully both – of these outcomes?
Where do researchers claim you can be safe?
Many researchers have posed their thoughts on where you can weather the death-a-palooza, then cheerfully emerge into a post-apocalyptic world not unlike the video game “Fallout.” Where do the authorities point us to?

The documentary “2012” pinpoints the Drakensberg Mountains in the KwaZulu Natal of Africa as the place to survive the world’s end. Although apparently even if you make it you will be forced to put up with Oliver Platt so the desirability of survival is debatable. But other top researchers also point to the Drakensberg Mountains as the survival spot of choice. This location was first popularized by the Belgian researcher Patrick Geryl, who conveniently has a book you can buy about it. Some other authorities specifically recommend a comfy concrete bunker, but made with not too much iron since it evidently “attracts thunderbolts.” Given what we know about the living conditions in the Drakensberg mountains, we will just hope the refuge from the apocalypse turns out to be somewhere with fewer roving packs of wild dogs and more Six Flags Amusement Parks.
