Obama Warns Africa That Corruption Undermines Democracy

That’s a helpful message from a guy who does the bidding of his Green Energy donors to drive up electricity rates for all Americans using the excuse of a Global Warming crisis that even its advocates are backing away from due to the lack of scientific evidence.
I’m not sure Obama is exactly the ideal figure to lecture Africa about corruption. Not when his administration puts its policy at the service of billionaire backers like Warren Buffett and George Soros, when it just nominated Penny Pritzker for Commerce Secretary while filling his cabinet with tax cheats.
Obama cautioned in his speech that, despite freer societies and growing economies, much needs to be done to eradicate poverty, shed corruption and eliminate conflict.
“We know this progress rests on a fragile foundation,” he said. “Across Africa, the same institutions that should be the backbone of democracy can all too often be infected with the rot of corruption.”
One of those institutions is the United States government which has fallen deep into bureaucratic collectivism. Its agencies exist for no other reason than to perpetuate themselves. Its leaders push destructive policies for special interests. They have ceased to represent the people.
Perhaps African leaders can offer Obama some advice for fixing the problem?
