The U.S. government
has had a warrant for Bobby Fischer's (the chess champion) arrest since
1992. Fischer has been a fugitive ever since.
It was 5:25
on a Tuesday afternoon at Tokyo/Narita Airport and Bobby Fischer was at
the immigration desk. He was bound for Manila on Japan Airlines Flight
745. His 90-day stay in Japan was up. He was used to moving. For a dozen
years, Fischer had been on the move, ever since the U.S. government hit
him with a felony charge of violating sanctions against the former Yugoslavia
by participating in a $5 million rematch there against Boris Spassky. Fischer
was warned beforehand, told he faced up to 10 years in jail. "This is my
response" he said, spitting on the warning letter. According to Fischer's
lawyer, Richard Vattuone, Fischer is the only American citizen charged
with violating those sanctions, including government officials who shipped
arms to the Bosnians. (one law for those those they like, another for those

Columbus: How Africans Brought Civilization to America
October 12, 2014
(type 'before columbus how africans brought civilization to america' globalresearch.ca)
up and down the country, little children are taught that a heroic Italian
explorer discovered America and various events and parades are held to
celebrate the occasion.
"It has now
become common knowledge amongst academics that Christopher Columbus clearly
did not discover America. See Kevin Costner's 4 part series 500
Nations: The Story of American Indians.
history did not start with slavery in the New World. An overwhelming body
of new evidence is emerging which proves that Africans had frequently sailed
across the Atlantic to the Americas, thousands of years before Columbus
and indeed before Christ. The great ancient civilizations of Egypt and
West Africa traveled to the Americas, contributing immensely to early American
civilization by importing the art of pyramid building, political systems
and religious practices as well as mathematics, writing and a sophisticated
historian and linguist, Leo Weiner of Harvard University, in his book,
and the discovery of America, explained how Columbus noted in his journal
that Native Americans had confirmed that "black skinned people had come
from the southeast in boats, trading in gold-tipped spears".
"One of the
first documented instances of Africans sailing and settling in the Americas
were black Egyptians led by King Rameses
III, during the 19th dynasty in B.C.E.
1292. In fact, in B.C.E. 445, the Greek historian Herodotus wrote of the
Ancient Egyptian pharaohs' great seafaring and navigational skills. Further
concrete evidence, noted by Dr. Imhotep and largely ignored by Euro-centric
archaeologists, includes Egyptian artifacts found across North America
from the Algonquin writings on the East Coast to the artifacts and Egyptian
place names in the Grand Canyon.
"In 1311 A.D.,
another major wave of African exploration to the New World was led by King
Abubakari II, the ruler of the fourteenth century Mali Empire, which was
larger than the Holy Roman Empire. The king sent out 200 ships of men and
200 ships of trade material, crops, animals, cloth and crucially African
knowledge of astronomy, religion and the arts.
crossing the vast Atlantic waters in primitive boats may seem unlikely,
or perhaps, far fetched to some. Such incredible nautical achievements
are not as daunting as they seem, given that numerous successful modern
attempts have illustrated that without an oar, rudder or sail, ancient
African boats, including the 'dug-out' would certainly have been able to
cross the vast ocean in a matter of weeks.
"As time allows
us to drift further and further away from the 'European age of exploration'
and we move beyond an age of racial intellectual prejudice, historians
are beginning to recognize that Africans were skilled navigators long before
Europeans, contrary to popular belief.
some Western historians continue to refute this fact because, consciously
or unconsciously, they are still hanging on to the 19th-century notion
that seafaring was a European monopoly.
history will tell you that seafaring is the quintessential
European achievement. Black Africans braved the Atlantic Ocean and beat
Europeans to the New World.
people think about ancient Mexico, the first civilizations that come to
mind are the Incas, Aztecs and the Maya. However, during the early 1940's
archeologists uncovered a civilization known as the Olmecs of 1200 BC,
which predated any other advanced civilization in the Americas.
civilization, which was of African origin and dominated by Africans, was
the first significant civilization in Mesoamerica and the Mother Culture
perhaps best known for the carved colossal heads found in Central Mexico,
that exhibit an unmistakably African Negroid appearance. Ancient African
historian Professor Van Sertima has illustrated how Olmecs were the first
Mesoamerican civilization to use a written language, sophisticated astronomy,
arts and mathematics and they built the first cities in Mexico, all of
which greatly influenced the Mayans and subsequent civilizations in the
Americas. "There is not the slightest doubt that all later civilizations
in (Mexico and Central America), rest ultimately on an Olmec base", once
remarked Michael Coe, a leading historian on Mexico.
played an intricate role in the Olmec Empire's rise and that African influence
peaked during the same period that ancient Black Egyptian culture ascended
"A clear indicator
of pre-Columbus African transatlantic travel is the recent archeological
findings of narcotics native to America in Ancient Egyptian mummies, which
have astounded contemporary historians. German toxicologist, Svetla Balabanova,
reported findings of cocaine and nicotine in ancient Egyptian mummies.
These substances are known to only be derived from American plants. South
American cocaine from Erythroxylon coca and nicotine from Nicotiana tabacum.
Such compounds could only have been introduced to Ancient Egyptian culture
through trade with Americans.
across early American and African religions also indicate significant cross-cultural
contact. The Mayans, Aztecs and Incas all worshipped black gods and the
surviving portraits of the black deities are revealing. For instance, ancient
portraits of the Quetzalcoatl, a messiah serpent god, and Ek-ahua, the
god of war, are unquestionably Negro with dark skin and wooly hair. Why
would native Americans venerate images so unmistakably African if they
had never seen them before? Numerous wall paintings in caves in Juxtlahuaca
depict the famous ancient Egyptian 'opening of the mouth' and cross libation
rituals. All these religious similarities are too large and occur far too
often to be mere coincidences.
Everett Borders notes another very important indication of African presence,
which is the nature of early American pyramids. Pyramid construction is
highly specialized. Ancient Egypt progressed from the original stepped
pyramid of Djosser, to the more sophisticated finished product at Giza.
However, at La Venta in Mexico, the Olmecs made a fully finished pyramid,
with no signs of progressive learning. Olmecian and Egyptian pyramids were
both placed on the same north-south axis and had strikingly similar construction
methods. Tellingly, all of these pyramids also served the same dual purpose,
tomb and temple.
similarities in botany, religion and pyramid building constitute but a
fraction of the signs of African influence in ancient America. Other indicators
include, astronomy, art, writing systems, flora and fauna.
the African people have been exceptional explorers and purveyors of culture
across the world. Throughout all of these travels, African explorers
have not had a history of starting devastating wars on the people they
met. The greatest threat towards Africa having a glorious future is
her people's ignorance of Africa's glorious past.
civilization in the Americas had its foundation built by Africans and developed
by the ingenuity of Native Americans. Sadly, America, in post-Columbus
times, was founded on the genocide of the indigenous Americans, built on
the backs of African slaves and continues to run on the exploitation of
workers at home and abroad.
helped civilize America well before Europeans 'discovered' America and
well before Europeans claim to have civilized Africa. The growing body
of evidence is now becoming simply too loud to ignore. It's about time
education policy makers reexamine their school curriculums to adjust for
America's long pre-Columbus history."....Garikai
