U.S.A. : Presidential Election to United States on November 8, 2016.

 

For who will vote the Americans?

         No,
I will not vote for Mrs Hillary Clinton nor for Mr Donald Trump, because I'm not American. But after following the most pathetic presidential campaign of History, that I have ever seen in the United States of America and especially after reading the editorial by Nicholas Kristof in the New York Times (which reads in part), I am convinced that Americans, Democrats and/or Republicans and others, who think as I, know now for who they will vote without hesitation.
         The foreigners must be aware of the important role the U.S. A. will play in the world, in Africa and in Switzerland (in particular). The decisions of the 45th president (or the new First Female president) will affect them directly or indirectly.

Imagine :
A piece of journalism anthologiston the air of John Lennon!

        
"Imagine that Hillary Clinton had five children with three husbands, she told her daughter that she" had a nice ass ", she participated in a radio interview on oral sex in a hot tub, she notes the men on their body plastic, she showed in Playboy videos of porn 'light'.

        
Imagine 15 men accusing Hillary Clinton of having abused or violated, and the account grows every day.

        
Imagine Hillary Clinton organized the competition of 'Mr teenager U.S.A.' and at that time she was slipped in the locker room to ogle young bodies, some were naked, having done the same when Mr U.S.A., and marveling at a radio show to have been authorized to do so.

        
Imagine that at the first election debate, Hillary Clinton is touted by stating that there was no problem with the size of her vagina.

        
Imagine Hillary  Clinton less government or military experience that no other person ever elected 'president of the United States'.

        
Imagine she says of one of his opponents in the primaries: 'look at his face! Does anyone want to vote for that? '
        
Imagine that Hillary Clinton is touted to have fired from his job a married man who refused to yield to his advances.
        
Imagine Hillary Clinton touted to be 'able to stand in 5th Avenue, to shoot someone, and not lose any voter'.

        
Imagine Hillary Clinton has taken the mouth into the microphone trying to evoke the male genitals in a degrading manner and to congratulate her social status allow it to catch people by their balls.

        
Imagine that she is touted to have committed adultery - and that she later fired from his job a married man who refused to yield to her advances.

        
Imagine that Hillary Clinton was accused of sexual assault by her first husband (before it shrinks) and then again once accused of harassment at trial by one of her business partners.

        
Imagine Hillary Cinton will be defended on a charge of violence against a young man explaining to his defense, "I can assure you he was not my first choice."

(... / ...)

        
Imagine Clinton, cited by one of the team members said that "laziness was a feature of Black" and she retweeted white supremacist, even including a message honoring the American Nazi Party.

        
Imagine that Clinton went bankrupt in its business to five times, "entubant" a long list of contractors, plumbers, painters, through lawyers.

(... / ...)

        
Imagine that Clinton denounced globalization while she is making shirts in Bangladesh, China ties, costumes Mexico and crystal glasses in Slovenia.

(... / ...)

        
Imagine Hilary Clinton refuses to show his tax forms.

        
Imagine Clinton demolish an ancient king of beauty and invites via tweeter to go check on the "sextape" type - even if this video does not exist.

(... / ...)

        
Imagine that Clinton is completely ignorant of nuclear strategy or that of N.A.T.O., and she says she 'knows more about the Islamic state that the general.'

        
And Nicholas Kristof concluded that long list of subsidiary question: "So are there no double standard in American politics, in American society, subjecting women to greater pressure? To you, to decide ...! "

Rwanda/South Africa : Can power Genes resurface after one or more generations?

 The Rwandese Symbols of Royalty.

        
In the kingdoms of Rwanda and Burundi, the ritualists (Abiru) knew how to detect in a child, at birth, genes and symbols of royalty. For simplicity, we told to lay the child-king was born with in his right hand the symbols of royalty: a drop of milk (amata) and sorghum seeds (imbuto). These were the signs "obvious" to one that will bring prosperity to the kingdom by the livestock and agriculture, basic economic activities. Upon discovery of these symbols in the baby, his family had to do everything to keep him away from the court and avoid the intrigues of the other contenders for power. Even exile and ensure his military and royal training away from Rwanda. These symbols were only a simple representation of Rwandan power genes. And if the last pretender to the throne of the Kingdom of Rwanda, Jean Baptiste Ndahindurwa, Kigeli V (June 25, 1936 - October 16, 2016), had less royal genes predisposing him for power in Rwanda than Paul Kagame (born on October 23, 1957)?
        
Beyond this simplistic explanation and considering actual cases, there is probably a scientific explanation: genetics.
Why some people, distant descendants of kings, come to power or have the facility to exercise power without necessarily prepared for it?
Do not they have a "special" gene which predisposes them to be attracted to the exercise of power?

A descendant of Richard the Lion Heart, John Lackland, Blanche of Castile and Louis IX, aka St. Louis in South Africa.

        
We chose the case of the Afrikaner, Francis William Reitz, distant descendant of Blanche of Castile (1188-1252) and King Louis IX Capet alias Saint Louis (born on April 25, 1214 at Poissy and died on August 25, 1270 at Tunis) to illustrate this reflection. After the regency assured by his queen mother Blanche of Castile, born on March 4, 1188 at Palencia, Castilla, died on November 27, 1252 at Melun in France. She was the daughter of Alfonso VIII of Castile (1156-1214) and Eleanor of England, queen of Castilla (1215-1214), herself the daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II (1154-1189). She was the niece of the kings Richard the Lionheart (1157-1199) and John Lackland (1166-1216).
         Here the genetic of Reitz Francis William, who was born and lived centuries later in the Orange Free State (now South Africa), which was not a kingdom for the Afrikaner and other European immigrants (Afrikaner, British and others).

U.S.A. / Liberia: These men are concrete bridges between America and Africa.

 
There are men in the story that are true bridges between two continents. James Spriggs Payne deserves the homage of the two countries, the United States and his country Liberia. More than any other man, he deserves to have helped soften the horrors of slavery which he was the product. Without erasing the deep scars of this shameful intercontinental traffic, he scored positively the African American memory and deserves to be rightly in the National Museum of African American History and Culture (N.M.A.A.H.C.) inaugurated  in September 2016 by President Barack Obama in Washington.

But who is James Spriggs Payne?

         Descendant of African slaves, born on December 19, 1819 at Richmond, Virginia in the United States. His father, a pastor of the Methodist Church gives him a strict religious upbringing. At the age of 9, his parents decided to return to Africa with the help of American Colonization Society. In 1840, after his studies in Liberia, he returned to the United States to be ordained priest of the Orthodox Church. He exercises his pastoral ministry for nine years before being appointed to high office. In 1858, he resigns, becomes a writer and entered politics.

Priest, Politician and Writer.

         He is responsible for organizing the details for the separation between the Liberian Commonwealth and the American Colonization Society. In May 1867, he was elected president of Liberia. In January 1868, the government is trying to curb piracy and fraud on the Liberian coast. In September 1969, the seizure of a British merchant ship by the government causes a major crisis between the two countries. In December 1870, he lost the election, but he was re-elected in May 1875. On March 1, 1876, he managed to sign a peace treaty between the United States and Great Britain which regulates the issue peacefully of Cape Palmas County, Maryland.

From Orthox Church to Methodist Church.

         In 1880, after leaving his presidential duties, he plays an important role in the Methodist Church. The same year, he represented Liberia at the Annual Conference of the Methodist Church in Cincinnati, Ohio (U.S.A.). On January 19, 188, he was elected president of the annual conference of the Methodist Church in Liberia. In January 1882, he received an honorary doctorate from the College of Liberia for services to the community. He died in Liberia on January 31, 1882. He was only 62 years old.  One of two airports located in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor bears his name
