When the Philippines elected Rodrigo Duterte President they also voted in a vigilante government. Is it so far fetched Americans are looking in the same mirror with a Trump Presidency?

Police in the Philippines have killed thirty individuals that they have identified as drug traffickers. They didn’t get their day in court because they were gunned down in the streets. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

What’s the penalty for treason?

Progressive radio host Bill Press argued on Tuesday that Senate Republicans “should have thought about” the penalty for treason before they attempted to undermine President Barack Obama’s negotiations with Iran.

After 47 Republican senators sent a letter to Iranian leaders telling them that any nuclear deal that the Obama administration agreed to would be undone by a future president, The New York Daily News branded the lawmakers “traitors” on its Tuesday cover.

On his Tuesday radio show, Press agreed that what the Republicans had done was treason “by any definition.”

“What’s the penalty for treason? Life in prison without parole? Or death by hanging?” he asked. “Perhaps 47 Republican Senators should have thought about that before they all signed a letter to the Supreme Ayatollah of Iran, warning him not to make a deal with President Obama.”

“This is the Second Act for Republicans who would rather go to war against Iran than try to reach an agreement with Iran to drop its pursuit of nuclear weapons,” the radio host noted. “First, they invite Bibi Netanyahu to attack negotiations with Iran. Now, they try to sabotage any deal with this letter.”

Press pointed out that the United States was at the negotiating table with its partners in China, France, Germany, Russia, and Britain. But “a group of all Republican Senators send a letter to Iran trying to queer the deal,” he said.

“First, Republicans used Netanyahu to undermine President Obama’s attempts at diplomacy. Now, they’re using the Ayatollah,” Press lamented. “In my book, by any definition, that, my friends is treason.”

“And it should be dealt with accordingly.”

According to Article Three of the U.S. Constitution, “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

While Press floated the death penalty, other observers have pointed out that the GOP senators might have violated the Logan Act, which carries a penalty of up to three years in prison. – Raw Story

Buhari, Tinubu & Osinbajo

Buhari Tinubu & Osinbajo

“Mr. President has failed woefully to protect the lives and property of the Nigerian people.” – Femi Fani-Kayode -Spokesperson & Consultant, President Goodluck Jonathan reelection team.

“In all this President Goodluck Jonathan has much to learn and I would be the last person to endorse what I consider to be his inexplicable restraint and obvious weakness in the fight against Boko Haram. Mr. President has failed woefully to protect the lives and property of the Nigerian people and no responsible, self-respecting and rational human being, including those that consider themselves to be his officials and friends, should fail to admit this or should shy away from telling him. We expect far better from him and if he fails to deliver on this he would not only have betrayed his mandate, violated his oath of office and let down the Nigerian people but he will play right into the hands of his sworn enemies and critics. These include the Haramites and their secret friends and others of a more benign nature from the other side of the world like the American Senator John Mcain, who gleefully told the whole world just yesterday that ”no government exists in Nigeria”. It also includes Senator Hilary Clinton, who said only two days ago, that the Federal Government of Nigeria had ”squandered their oil wealth, allowed corruption to fester and now they are losing control of parts of their country”.

I am touched by these admonitions from our American friends but one wonders why it took the Obama administration up until early this year to formally recognise Boko Haram as a terrorist organisation despite repeated calls to do so earlier by many prominent Nigerians including Ayo Oritsejafor, the President of CAN. When Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State for America the State Department simply refused to label Boko Haram as a terrorist group even though it had butchered thousands of Nigerians by that time.

There is no doubt that the Jonathan administration has handled this matter in a wholly unacceptable and inadequate manner and I have said so more than any other in the last three years; but frankly the Americans, and particularly Senator Clinton, must carry their own fair share of the blame in this matter. For President Goodluck Jonathan, the words of my brother, Opeyemi Agbaje, are instructive. On May 9, he wrote: ”we warned Jonathan. We called for action against Boko Haram and we screamed until our voices went hoarse. Now the people who advised him against taking strong action and called for dialogue, the very people that said it was caused by poverty, the very people that promised that traditional rulers would resolve the matter, the very people that encouraged him to vacillate and do nothing or little, are the ones mocking him. Well that is why leaders must exercise leadership. The buck stops at his table. The credit or the failure goes to him. I hope he learns!” – Femi Fani-Kayode – Spokesperson & Consultant, President Goodluck Jonathan reelection team

Black Presidents

Black South Africans broke loose of white supreme rule just over 20 years ago. The living symbol of South Africa’s freedom Nelson Mandela struggles for his life in Pretoria Hospital.  It is obvious that black South African’s are still reeling from the effects of apartheid and the lessons of those dark times still haunt today.

It took over 230 years for America to elect a black person president, am talking about Barack Obama from Kenya. In my lifetime I have witnessed the first black American president and the first black South African president. That said it is in bad taste for protestors who believe Barack Obama is not doing enough to curb the problem of bad leadership and corruption in many African nations to use Pretoria hospital as the venue to pull Obama’s coat.

We Africans understand that bad leadership and corruption has plagued the leadership of the African continent for many decades after colonial rule. The historic occasion of Barack Obama spending maybe last private moments with Nelson Mandela should not be tainted by these protests. This is not the African way. It is a disrespect to the honor and legacy of Nelson Mandela, the people of South Africa, Africans, African Americans and President Barack Obama. – @OgbeniAyotunde
