I spoke with Anthony Egbase, exclusively, to learn more about how the Obama administration's plans to deal with ISIS and Boko Haram in the wake of the escalated terrorist attacks.

Human rights would be empowered by a proportional and rational response, but knee-jerk fear has a history of racism in this country when it comes to public health. Unfortunately, current media reactions, prevalent in mainstream and social media, are fanning flames of xenophobia in America and withholding care from those that need it most.
Critics who call for simplistic solutions like "getting tough" -- some go so far as to recommend imitating Vladimir Putin, of all people -- are trying to re-fight the wars of the past.

The time is now to change the way we police America before hundreds of thousands of more pieces of military gear go to main streets across America. The face of America is changing quickly. Let's make sure it's not for the worse.

Regardless of where you live, you should check out those rankings before selecting your insurance carrier for 2015. You'll find that, just as in California, the nonprofits lead the pack and the for-profits are eating their dust.
President Barack Obama,
President Bill Clinton,
Some of the terms are new -- Ebola, for example -- but the tactics are the same. We have the tools to fight back: strong coalitions, positive national security, veterans and immigration reform messages, and rejection of these politics of personal destruction. But we need to use them -- consistently and courageously.

One good thing for the president is that his Asia-Pacific Pivot -- heightened engagement with the rising region, and nascent superpower China -- hasn't been wrecked by the lengthening array of Obama administration distractions, including his troubled and tardy war against Isis.

Who do you think Doane Robinson would have chosen for "Mount Rushmore" if it were being sculpted today? Do you think there are other presidents who are Mount Rushmore worthy?
I've been to West Africa, working as a music journalist, and to get there from the United States is not easy. I was based in Ann Arbor at the time, and had to take four flights to get to Mali, connecting in places like Amsterdam and Zurich along the way.
When the risks are very high and the treatment benefits low, a duty to treat is less than categorical.

The issue of same-sex marriage propels some Texas Republicans into paroxysms of bigotry (actually, with these folks just about anything will do that). The knuckle-dragger response to same-sex marriage is to declare that if we recognize same-sex unions, soon we will have people marrying horses or inflatable dolls.
The loss of a mother or father is traumatic in the extreme -- yet, for these children, the tragedy is being compounded by social isolation. At a time when they so desperately need compassion and care, many are being shunned and ostracized for fear of contamination. Surely, we can summon the courage, compassion and commitment to do better.
Humans, like many successful species on the planet, are evolutionarily a skittish and risk-averse bunch. Yet we are also supposedly the smartest life form on the globe. Thus we should do better and use or brains rather than reflexively supporting a travel ban against people from West Africa.
If Rounds insists on remaining in office throughout his criminal proceedings, constituents will be left to question his effectiveness as a senator and his ability to serve their interests.
Vice President Joe Biden got the tongues furiously wagging again after a recent meeting with black ministers in South Carolina.
Rich people often try to self-fund (buy) their way into office, but how successful are they?
Documents obtained from an industry-wide venture reveal that the nation's leading mortgage lenders colluded to create a false-front company, driven by a back-end database, specifically for the purpose of bypassing local jurisdictions' taxes and filing requirements.

At this moment there is no Ebola epidemic in the United States. But some have tried -- quite intentionally -- to create an epidemic of fear and panic for their own political gain. That is irresponsible and reprehensible.
