For a long time I thought I was going crazy in America ..in reality I was waking up deeper into a ritual everyday realizing that I was participating in my own death by living in a place that disturbed my spirit and destroyed my nerves while I allowed it to block my purpose..,.It was harder to heal in a place where your constantly traumatized and poisoned thru the air ..water and food...media..etc..The abuse we allow hurts more and is harder to heal because after a while we become desensitized to the pain and more numb .The layers become infused with denial and delusion about our participation in our own destruction...Humans become what they surround themselves with!!!..it's up to us at this point to create some solutions or allow ourselves to be sacrificed for crumbs by insecure rich folks that happen to be all colors!!...The whole earth is experiencing the same manipulation wherever the patriarchal fuckery is making money...we just have to activate wherever we are no matter what and stay in love!!!..#LOVEISUNDEFEATED#getglobal#artismagic#medicinemusic#knowthyself#WEALLBLACK#speakitintoexistence#thoughtsbecomereality#afrofuturism#colortherapy ..Follow me at #chasingthesun333 to get a look deeper into my #repatriation story..333
The Repatriation plan of Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh back to Myanmar was postponed due to incomplete list of the details of people to be sent back.
But during the preparation of the plan, Rohingya Muslim are still pouring into Bangladesh.

We're adjusting to a new life in NZ. Our first week was spent in Auckland trying to "help" @ty.newson settle into his new mahi as Development Manager with Kiwi Property. To our Auckland whanau and friends sorry we weren't able to catch up. After a manic previous week in KL we were adjusting to time zones, daylight savings, sans helper etc but are looking forward to seeing you when we're next in Auckland. The second part of our journey was flying to Rotorua where the kids and I will stay with my parents until we find a place to stay in Auckland. We're hanging by the lake getting ourselves readjusted to NZ life. Kahupatiti has now "washed" Papa Stew's car, seen a cockabully been caught in a net in the little bay at mum and dad's place, watched a waka on the lake, all quintessential kiwi experiences. @ty.newson is now commuting on a weekly basis between Auckland and Rotorua. I had just typed in "KL" instead of Auckland. #repatriation#expatmovedhome#commuting#rotoruanz#kawahapoint#auckland#anytipsforrepatriation
Apple Finally to Bring Home The Cash
Over the years we’ve heard about all that foreign income Apple keeps outside the US, some USD 250 billion or so in a bid to… minimise its tax bill, however it now looks like they’re finally bringing the money home. And in doing so, Apple says it will pay about USD 38 billion in taxes. So why the sudden change of heart?
Well in December Congress approved an extensive tax-code revision that scraped a previous provision that allowed companies to defer U.S. income taxes on foreign earnings until they returned the income to the U.S., which they never did. This led to the astounding stockpiling of an estimated USD 3.1 trillion offshore by US companies. That’s almost the size of Germany’s GDP!
This is not the first time the US Government has tried to repatriate foreign earnings, President Barack Obama also tried to bring the cash home in 2015 but was unsuccessful due to congress’ inability to... work with him.
So now, is this a win for the Trump Presidency?
Well it will certainly look so, particularly to his base. Especially with the news that Apple’s plans to create 20,000 jobs and spend some USD 350 billion in country over five-years, USD 30 billion of which will be capital expenditure.
Now while all this does sound good, we should keep in mind that these new rates are far lower than the previous 35% tax rate on corporate profits where Apple would have had to pay about USD 90 billion instead, however is USD 90 billion the US government could have collected, better than getting the money home now and reaping the other benefits of job creation and domestic investment?
As from Today
I'm gonna be posting a lot about Repatriation,the purpose is to get African People(especially the Leaders) Prepared for Exodus,We must be ready to welcome home our Brothers and Sisters who are in the Diaspora due to the 400years of Slavery. It's time to Rebuild,Renew,Resurrect and Repair the fallen African Kingdom. The vision is to Restore everything the oppressors took from Africa to build and empower their Foreign Countries and Economies. But now it's time to take back what it rightfully ours and Rebuild our own United States of Africa with our own currency(African Dollar) which will be used in all African the Countries. We can do it,we will do it,4million African men with the relevant information,knowledge and education will come from America and England(diaspora) to help us accomplish this mission,but we need to be prepared for This,lets start Today
#Revelation#Reparation then #Repatriation

Meanwhile in WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) — The federal government shut down at the stroke of midnight Friday, halting all but the most essential operations and marring the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration in a striking display of Washington dysfunction. #Mood#NoFilter#Shithole#Government#Aljazeer#Zanzibar
The Society for the #Colonization of FREE "People of (COPPER) 🙅🏾♂️Color" of #America , commonly known as the #AmericanColonizationSociety (#ACS )⚔️, was a group established in 1816 by Robert Finley 🤡🤛🏾 of New Jersey which supported the migration of FREE #AfricanAmericans 👀⚔️🙊(#NativeAmericans#FRFR 🏹) TO found a COLONY 👀 (I bet they didn't like the #AmericoLiberians colonizing THEIR motherland when the #AmericanIndians had America to live in) the Pepper-Coast of West Africa (which became independent #Liberia in 1848...just LOOK at their #flag and #motto ) and in 1821–22 as a place for FREE American "blacks" (how many diverse names for us do they use 🤦🏾♂️). There were many objections from African Americans like James Forten and David Walker, and #FredrickDouglass (#UmarJohnson been lying 🤥 to y'all but I'll expose him on another post or two or three 🙅🏾♂️) who wished to remain in the #LAND of THEIR BIRTH (AND their #Ancestors ), saw colonization as a #racist 👀 strategy for "protecting" slavery and "purging" the #US of its "black (#Indigenous )👀 citizens", and preferred to fight for EQUAL rights at home ✊🏾(TOO MANY TO COUNT WERE KILLED FOR THAT). 🙉🙊🙈🖕🏾
The ACS was founded by groups otherwise opposed to each other on the issue of slavery, being a coalition made up mostly of #evangelicals and #Quakers who supported abolition of slavery and believed blacks would face better chances for #FREEdom in #Africa than in the #UnitedStates , 👀🙉🐃💩🐃💩🐃💩 and some slaveholders (in Maryland and elsewhere...see #WilliamTubman ) who saw repatriation as a way to remove free blacks from slave societies and avoid slave rebellions. The two opposed groups found common ground in support of so-called "#repatriation ". (SEE PAGE 3 🔑 👀 ⚔️🙅🏾♂️ of this post) #HistoREAL#InREALTime WE R 🙋🏾♂️🏹✌🏾#STILLHERE 👀 #NAGAS 👑🐲🐉

Have you found your inner Ibex lately?
How do you say farewell to a friend? At GEaR we view our sponsors as more than just supporters who generously donate equipment and resources. We have close relationships with all of them. Whether they print our business cards or supply us with sophisticated technology to aid our search efforts, our sponsors are part of our family. Which is why we are sad to share the news that Ibex, a steadfast supporter of GEaR from the beginning, will be closing their doors in February. It was a difficult decision for them, but the challenges of remaining competitive in an outdoor equipment market that has become reliant on inexpensive foreign labor made it hard to continue their business model.
We are grateful for the contributions that Ibex made over the years. Not only does their quality wool clothing keep us comfortable in the frigid working conditions of the Arctic, Ibex shared our conviction that searching for 3 missing aviators from World War 2 is the right thing to do. They believed in our mission and understood our commitment to the project. Ibex also shared our values of honesty, integrity, and sustainability, expressed in their approach to sourcing materials and supporting innovative American design and manufacturing. We were proud to call them friends and will miss their company on this challenging journey. Our relationship will outlive the company and will even outlast the durability of their clothing. Please join us in thanking Ibex for their unwavering support and friendship.

A few photos from our last day at The Avare, saying farewell to daddy's work and arriving at KLIA. Thanks to @smrafizal for all your help over the past four weeks. Kahupatiti loves the racing car🚘. Thanks @toni_kapelieli_ for sharing the KL journey with us. 208 boxes are now in storage in KL waiting for us to find somewhere to live. We finally made it onto the plane with literally minutes to go after paying RM1.5k for excess luggage (at one point it was going to be at least RM6k), leaving a car seat behind at the airport after misinterpreting Malaysia Airlines car seat policy. I should have reconfirmed with our travel agent prior to our flight. Fortunately both boys slept for nearly the entire flight. Having a seat for Kaira definitely made it an easier flight. #farewellkualalumpur#farewelltheavare#excessluggage#asiantigersmobility#repatriation#newadventures
I don't know anything about the situation and have done a pretty good job of staying out of it (of course the post and videos are juat all over the place). This is the only thing i want to say about this situation: the consious community is majority fans that thrive off of emotionalism and dissension. Majority persons who have information but doing absolutely nothing with it. Fake Malcolm X wannabes and impersonators. These persons helo make the consious community look bad.
Lastly, I've seen people share videos and make post saying, "i use to look up to this man." You know what, every man that ever made a post like that needs to question his manhood. So fucking what another man let you down because of his over inflated ego, do you not have an ego yourself, arguing and flaunting your perceived masculinity around in the comment section of every black person's post that you disagree with?
I look up to NO man. I look to the ancestors. Men in this plain of existence, i only look for the information and knowledge that they possess. Not one elder in the conscious communiry is 100% accurate on their information, but i rather look to the information a person presents, than that person's identity (which is virtually and ultimately insignificant to their information) (maybe the person's identity is better suited for a formal occasion dinner or personal blogs and videos outsids the realm of knowledge imparting presentations). When either of these men die, your still going to have their books, their lectures, their interviews, etc. All this pity shit that y'all whining about is not even going to matter in a few years. Anyone who ia still dwelling on this insignificant bullshit next week is a potential and lethal threat to the African, Hebrew, Moor, Muslim and black communities. Because if you can keep another man's bullshit alive...
Can't fight the system while we fighting ourselves...
We’re in Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, speaking to people about the upcoming repatriation deal between Bangladesh and Myanmar to send these people back to the country that burned their villages and doesn’t acknowledge their citizenship.
It’s odd as well, because word on the ground here is that repatriation is planned to start on the 23rd, yet during an hour’s coverage on the topic by BBC today, this detail hasn’t been mentioned. This highlights the lack of communication and fear the community is currently facing.

Guess which airport terminal this is. Looks like it could be SFO or Dulles or some international gate in Amsterdam, but if you guessed any of these things you would be wrong. In the face of risking your pre conceived notions, this is Kilimanjaro Airport in central Tanzania two days before Christmas. While we stood in line to pay $100 to obtain a visa, this crowd of people moved casually through the line on vacation in our homeland. Lol. Ya’ll think I’m kidding when I say the hour is much much later than you think. You better go home before there is no home to go to. #africa#gentrification#oakland#worldwide#nappytour#mrdavisclassroom#laterthanyouthink#youbetta#repatriation
