Does Al Franken and Tweeden’s photo speak a thousand words?


Does Al Franken and Tweeden’s photo speak a thousand words?

Before the advent of photoshop, a photo spoke a thousand words, but in our modern world with the 3D Photoshop tools, a photo could be manipulated to speak a thousand words or even a million words. In relation to the photo where Al Franken’s is touching Leeann Tweeden’s chest, we can see how a photo could be made to speak or how a photo speaks a thousand words.  To some it is sexual harassment while unto others, it is horse playing. Like Joy Behar said, “…in the picture he was obviously making a joke.” No doubt, sexual harassment is a serious matter when it actually occurs. The sexual harassment nowadays is used as McCarthyism in the 50s.
What is really bad is that, now we condemn people on mere hearsay. If I were him, I wouldn't resign. This is the second coming of McCarthyism. In the days of McCarthy, it was a witch-hunt for communists, but nowadays it is for sexual assaults. If your adversaries, opponents and enemies cannot beat you in normalcy, they fabricate sexual assaults accusations. What people could not do to Al Franken on a ballot box, they have done it on the soapbox of public opinion with a photoshop.  
Franken vehemently denies any wrongdoing. He maintains that the photo is real, but the connotation is different. He claims that his hands were apparently laced on her breasts, but they were not superimposed. The lady and himself were playing around, but now the lady days  that she only found that out. She said that she was asleep. That is how a photo could be made to speak a million words. A photo of that magnitude is so ambiguous that it tends to suggest a different message from its original intent. A photo is like language; at times, it tends to set ablaze the very fire it was trying to quench. As a comedian, Al believes in bringing joy and distressing situations, and it is that hubris of providing lightheartedness that has finally provided him the Sisyphean burden to bear.  If you look at the picture, you will believe him that he was joking. It was not as if him and Leeann have not rubbed their chests before. Picture number two shows they are used to feeling each other’s chest heat.  
The verb "to shop" could also mean to offer up for sale. Therefore, when you convert the compound noun into a verb, it does not only mean to alter an image; figuratively, it also means to impute an intent different from the original intent. Ab initio, the intent was one of clowning as shown in his pictures with Joy Behar, Stephanie Kemplin and Arianna Huffington, but now the intent has been shopped into sexual harassment. That is why Al Franken did not initially see anything wrong, and he still does not still see even a peccadillo therein.




Unfortunately, that has been successfully sold and bought by the gullible sellers and buyers of the Witch-hunt Market. To the unsophisticated and the sexual harassment foot soldiers, he has committed the mortal sin for which he can only be redeemed by sacrificing his political career. That sacrifice, he has made, but sooner or later the priestesses and priests who accepted the sacrifice will have to deal with more demands when the goddesses of sexual harassment start to demand their innocent fathers, sons, brothers and friends make the same sacrifice, for those who worship make sacrifices. The praise and worship are sacrosanct, but the trauma thereof will be elastic, knowing no bounds amongst mortal men who will all weep seeking a Deuse-Ex Machina, Soteria or perhaps God to plead their innocence.    

Until then, the worship service has just started.

Southern Cameroons Should Keep Their Schools Closed For Their Own Good.

I hear talks of schools reopening because children can no more stay home. Is it that all those who were arrested have been released, or is it that they have quickly attained their goals? Is it that the marginalization of Southern Cameroons has been resolved, or is it that Anglophone grievances have been satisfied? Southern Cameroons is not the first and will not be the last. Do you remember all those who died in the Southern Cameroons territory? They cannot be resurrected, but let the cause for which they died be attained. What shall you tell the mother in Bamenda whose son was killed while fighting for the Anglophone cause, or what shall you tell the sister whose only brother had his brain dashed and mixed with the dust of Mutengene? What answer shall the Southern Cameroon leaders give to those college girls who were raped and abused? Their trauma will increase exponentially because it means that they were raped in vain. I was not the one raped and I was not the one who lost a brother, but their lost and pain keep me awake day and night.
Otherwise, their blood will be on the hands of Southern Cameroons leaders. Cultural and political revolutions can find a passage to success only when schools are shut down. That is why during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, schools were closed for more than one year. Before the Chinese, the Indians had done it with great success.  
Two days ago, I was watching a video on American fight for independence, and therein was a mention that “The English government closed the Dutch schools for some time" because they seemed to inspire the rebels. 
Therefore, shutting down schools as a medium of political pressure to force leverage and entertain some form of negotiation is not anew. The stakes are very high now. If Southern Cameroons keeps her schools closed, the government will want to use force to get them open. That will attract more attention. No school too will mean that the government has lost its grip; consequently, it will be forced to negotiate. It is better to stay home than to have a school like this one in a region that produces oil.
It is better to stay home than to have kids in a school like this despite all the oil we have. 

Our children and grand children cannot keep risking their lives when we have all those mineral resources. 

Let the kid stay home until Southern Cameroon is treated as an equal partner. 

A few months ago, I predicted that Trump was going to win. As many of you know, I seldom lose in my predictions. If Southern Cameroons resume school this September, they will forever lose their cause. If Southern Cameroons cannot sleep because of what the Biya government is doing to her, the Biya government will not sleep for fear of what Southern Cameroons will do unto her. It is in the best interest of both parties to negotiate and find a practical solution that benefits all Cameroonians. Until such is done, Southern Cameroons should not go to school. They cannot reach the toilet and excrete on the floor. They will be forced to clean their mess or even forced to eat it. It is not a secret that when the oppressed revolts and fails, the oppressor increases their pain as a payback. I cannot imagine what pain awaits the Southern Cameroons child, after schools resumes. I will like to share Norman Macleod’s first stanza of “Courage, brother, do not stumble.”

Courage, brother, do not stumble,
Though thy path be dark as night;
There’s a star to guide the humble:
Trust in God and do the right.
Let the road be rough and dreary,
And its end far out of sight,
Foot it bravely; strong or weary,

Until then, it is in the best interest of Southern Cameroons to keep their schools closed.

My Little Immanuel Church!



Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That sat on top of reformed theology.
It was not just the doctrine they taught;
It was their love to practice the word.
That made them women and men of God.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That sat on top of mustard mighty faith.
It was not their numbers that made them great;
It was their love for the spirit of the word.
That made godly and loving to be around.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That sat on top of God’s word and love.
You never heard of divorces and break-ups;
Their marriages were solid and love flowed.
How great was their notion of family.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church.
That sat on top of friendliness and jokes.
They joked about their ages and misfortunes;
They knew that God was all they wanted and had.
So they placed their faith and being in Him.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That made me love to be member of a church
Soon they spread amongst the Church;
Perhaps to share their faith and works
This year their curtain will be drawn.

"Do you have family here?"


People always ask me each time I meet a new person, “Do you have family here?” Sometimes, when I meet a white person, he or she always wants to tell me about some Africans or Cameroonians they know. They will ask me, “Do you want to meet them?” I am sure, most of them are always taken aback when I say that “No, not really. I want to know you and make you my family.” Some of them think that I don’t have a notion of family, or I hate my family or something. If I know the person well, I will ask them, “Do you meet every white person you see, or do you meet every American in Germany or Europe whenever you visit?” They will grind and retort, “You are funny.” I do that because as a follower of Christ, I must espoused everything He taught. He taught us that those who do God’s will are our brothers and sisters and our mothers and fathers. The spiritual family does not know race, color, ethnicity or social status; it knows only the Blood of Christ and the seal of Spirit.
Suffer that I clear the first scriptural barrier that those who disagree with me always raise. They always cite I Timothy 5:8, “But if any provide not for his own, especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” As many of you know that I use my real name because I want to give you the opportunity to verify what I say, so if you propagate lies, we can find recourse elsewhere. I believe in family, and I have a strong family bond that I rarely miss a day without talking with a sanguin brother, sister or my mother. Many of my nieces, nephews and even cousins will tell you that I paid their tuition. I don’t know a single needy cousin whom I did not help, except if he or she wanted to double dip, take from both sides.
Therefore, I am aware of that verse. When Jesus was in Tyre and Sidon (current day Lebanon) ministering, his brothers, sisters and mother came to see for themselves the state of their brother and son, especially because rumors have been going around that he was demented. People quickly announced to him that his family was there. He then asked them, “Who is my mother, or my brethren?” To the shock of many, he pointed to his disciples and believers, saying, “Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” Mk. 3:33-35.
I am sure that you have heard people say that blood is thicker than water. They mean that family ties are stronger than non-family ties. That is worldly wisdom. Divine wisdom says that “Water and spirit are stronger than blood.” Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” Jn 3:5-6. The water here stands for the blood-physical birth, human relationships and spiritual birth is for being born-again.  We become a family as brothers and sisters in Christ due to the death of Christ. When we are born again, we are adopted into the family of God; henceforth, we are brothers and sisters in the Lord. Those who are older to be our parents are our fathers and mothers.
Sometimes it baffles me how a white Christian will have less respect for me, a black brother in Christ, but he/she will honor another white person, even if he is a criminal. For me, I consider the mothers, fathers in my church the same way I consider my own mother. I feel their pain when they say that they are sick the very same way I feel when my own mother says that she is sick. When a sister in church tells me their problems, I bear the burden just like I do with my own sisters because those who hear the word and practice it are members of the family of God, which I am part. Even within the physical realm, sometimes there is “a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Prov. 18:24). These folks have different roles and he explains that, “A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need (Prov 17:17).” That is why, it is wrong for a Christian group to neglect their sister or brother in Christ simply because he looks or is different from them. They are there to help in times of need.  That is what a great Christian brotherhood does.
When white Christians ask me if I wanted to meet a black person or a Cameroonian, I seem to pity them (more than the non-Christians) because I see that they have not understood the bond that ties us together. They seem to feel that I would not be comfortable with them because they are white. They are my family. The other one is peripheral. If it happens that in my daily interactions I meet a Cameroonian or a black person, I am fine with that. However, it is not the color of one’s skin or their ethnicity that makes me comfortable around them; it is the spiritual bond which is demonstrated in how they practice their Christianity that makes me comfortable. They are my brothers and sisters. They are my mothers and fathers. They should make me feel comfortable by showing me the love of Christ. I will end with this anecdote.
Even my friendships are not made based o color and ethnicity. I make friends based on loyalty and honesty, no matter the color of one's skin. Many people are missing out on building a happy relationship and platonic friendship because they are so carried with this race thing. 
A few years back, the parents of a young sister refused her from dating, talk less of marrying a black man. They said that the black man will be of no good for her. Within 4 years, she dated and married 2 white men and both marriages ended up in divorce. The black guy they rejected is still happily married today to another white girl from another church.  Blood and water are thicker and stronger than just blood. Christendom should take note and keep it to heart. Who do you think would have been better for her: the white guys or the black guy? You make your pick. 

Until then, you are my family if you hear and keep the word of God.

Should Schools Resume in Southern Cameroons This Academic Year 09/2017-07/2018?


          If schools resume in Southern Cameroons, it will not be different from a runner who quits the race while he or she was almost on the finishline. The gains you make by not going to school and having better conditions in future for your posterity is better than the crumbs you will pick now by going to school in September. 
By going to school, you do not resolve the inequalities that exist between Southern Cameroon and other parts of Cameroon. We are not going to school because there are inequalities, and those inequalities have not been resolved. Why then are we going to school? 
Southern Cameroons still has dead bodies, freedom fighters in jail, and many are still prisoners of their consciences because they cannot speak their minds. Why then are you resuming school?
School boycott was to put pressure on the government and to draw international attention. The cameras are now on you, and you are running into the hellhole of comfort. In 5 years time, you should not come back again about ghost town or grievances. I supposed that by going to school, the government has settled all your grievance; otherwise, I will suggest that Operation Ghost Town continues until the government capitulates. 
Until then, I pray thee not to trample underfoot the blood of the freedom fighters who have gone ahead.

Patrick Ekema, an epitome of a morally and spiritually bankrupt Cameroon


Patrick Ekema


On Patrick Ekema, an epitome of a morally and spiritually bankrupt Cameroon society , one must trace the genes of fraud as a social immoral  construct accepted as a norm in the Cameroon socio- religious and political culture.  Almost everything in Cameroon , East, North South or West  is a fraud. The church politics is a fraud ,so too is state politics.  

The Cameroon  Scholarship Board was a fraud under anglophones. Many students on scholarship to study in foreign universities had fake documents and grades.  The directors of the program abused the modus operandi of the program to send unqualified families and children of friends and colleagues overseas on scholarships. Many turned out to be academic nonentities. 

Since 1988 that I knew of the Cameroon Scholarship under anglophones, they  rejected the brightest students from poor backgrounds and gave their merited places to those who did not even come closed to the B grade.  The elite doctored the academic transcripts of their children and children of friends and sent their love ones  overseas on those scholarships when they did not qualify for them. 

So why are some of these folks acting strange on the Ekema Patrick guy when it is a system of fraud? The system is a fraud and lots of things happen through fraud. For instance all entrance exams into professional schools is one of the biggest frauds ever in Cameroon. We all know that only about 5 % of people who make it  into professional schools are meritorious. That only about 5 % were also selected for Cameroon scholarships abroad on academic merits. The rest has been through fraud. 

Who can deny  the fact that about  50 % of the candidates recruited into any professional school in Cameroon had to give a bribe in cash or in kind including but not limited to money, land or any property in exchange for admission to the extent that seating for the entrance exam was only a formality ? Who can contest this assertion ? 

 So let us trace back the power of fraudulent documents among Cameroonians at the level of Professional schools, Cameroon scholarships, award of degrees and employment. Let us think of all the fradulent documents many of you cameroonians living abroad have established in order to survive here in Europe and North America. 

How about fraudulent immigration documents ? How about fraudulent marriages for immigration papers ? So to me what some of them  are doing is sheer hypocrisy and a travesty of facts. Are they  decrying all these ills or they  are selectively targeting one man, Patrick Ekema ? How about the fraudulent activities of those who are here in the USA on political asylum and yet still supporting the same corrupt  people they claim persecuted them in cameroon? 

Please. Let us talk about all these frauds and not only focus on Ekema. 

How do we build a virtuous and free society ? 

Thanks, Jonathan Awasom

Does God Prohibit Incest?


“Bishop tell me what you think. Should you turn in your parents if you realized you were conceived out of incest?”
I will start by contextualizing the story (which you can read here yourself). 32 year old Donna Price found out (through an aunt) that the people she has known as her parents from birth until this age were siblings. She conducted a DNA, and the results came back that the father is unknown, but the mother is the biological mother. However, she felt betrayed that these two siblings (who are half-sister and half-brother) had lived together. Consequently, she reported them to the police. The question they ask is “Was she right in doing that? Should you turn in your parents from a crime or sin like that?"
Jesus once said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her (John 8:7).” What may be more egregious is the public spectacle she is making with her television rounds. It looks more like the Pharisees making a pompous round of honor after the death of Jesus. If there was a camera in her life 24/7, we will see that there are many laws that she has broken too. Notwithstanding, I will go directly into the theology of the saga.
The problem of incest is very complex. I want you to be open minded. Under the first four dispensations, God approved of incest. Yes, you heard me well. He did not condemn it. That is why God does not condemn Abraham when he married his half-sister-Sarah (Gen 20:12), Lot and his daughters had kids (Gen 19:35-38), Isaac and Rebecca were married (Gen 24: 1-4) and Amram- Moses’ Father married Jochabed-his aunt (Ex 6:20). Therefore, one married his half-sister, two had kids from their father, Isaac practiced endogamy, and the other married his aunt. There was not even a rebuke in any of them.
After Cain had killed Able, Adam and Eve had sons and daughters (Gen 5: 4). After Cain was banished from the clan, he became a wanderer. After Cain married, his wife got pregnant (Gen 4:17). They did not just have a child, but they had one who walked with God 365 years until God called him directly to heaven without him passing through death (Gen 5:24). It is certain that he married one of his sisters who was born after the death of Abel. People contend that this version is not true because there were people living before Adam and Eve. That is not what the Bible says, so we are not going to conjure.
Nevertheless, during the Dispensation of the Law, incest was elaborately forbidden thereiin (Leviticus 18:6-18; 20:11-17). Meanwhile, under the dispensation of Grace, it was not condemned. In the dispensation of Grace, Christs perfected the law. The law was now administered with equity-spirit. People have cited I Corinthians 5: 1-5. The condemnation herein was on fornication-illicit sex; it was not because it was his father’s wife. His father was still married to the woman, when he seized her from him. That is where the condemnation lies because God has always been against sex out of marriage. If incest was to take place in marriage, it would bear no condemnation.
In the dispensation of grace, there is no adoption or rejection of incest. The question then is, “is incest prohibited nowadays?” Although incest is not prohibited; it is not expedient. It is not expedient due to the unsavory health complications it brings. During the first four dispensations, their life span and health were robust, but we now live in a fragile state of unhealthiness that close sexual relationships will bring more complications. Paul said that all things are lawful, but all things are not expedian4t (I Cor 6:12; 10:23). Hence, incest per se today is not a sin (a moral wrong), albeit it is a legal wrong because there are laws against incest. In countries where incest is not prohibited, it is not morally and legally wrong.
Consequently, the young woman turning in her parents was being too overzealous and too over righteous, especially for a peccadillo like this which is not even prohibited in the scripture. Ecclesiastes 7:16 says, "Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?" Furthermore, her parents were half siblings and they got together without realizing that they were related. Once they did, they separated. Donna Price calling the police was totally pharisaical. Paul declared, “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30).” God has reserved a day when he will judge us all, and I am certain that he would have maintained the forgiveness he already granted her parents. More so, they are siblings, but only the mom is the biological parent. They go together by mistake. As such, going to the press is a money grubbing act rather than a righteousness act.

Until then, the young woman is wrong calling the police.
