Will Bono Save Africa?

September 23, 2013

First the Zionists targeted, bombed and looted middle eastern Muslim nations who they blamed for their 9/11 false flag terror. Now they're targeting Muslim nations in Africa with false flag operations like the latest Kenyan Mall (owned by Zionists) Shooting.

After the mass shooting, USA Today wrote this propaganda message: "Nairobi mall attack strikes against all of us. As on 9/11, terrorists are waging a war on our modern, democratic way of life. Today, we are all Kenyans."

 

 

BONO POSTER BOY

Bono is his stage name but his real name is Paul David Hewson. He's a venture capitalist, billionaire businessman and activist and he's the primary vocalist and lyricist of the Dublin-based rock band U2.

Bono wants you to believe that he symbolizes the mission to save Africa. In reality, he has been covering up the harm the G8 nations are doing in Africa and he is undermining campaigns for justice and accountability. http://www.helpfreetheearth.com/news895_kenya.html

It was bad enough in 2005. Then, at the G8 summit in Scotland, Bono and Bob Geldof heaped praise on Tony Blair and George Bush, who were still mired in the butchery they had initiated in Iraq. At one point Geldof appeared, literally and figuratively, to be sitting in Tony Blair’s lap. African activists accused them of drowning out a campaign for global justice with a campaign for charity.

As the UK chaired the G8 summit again this year, Bono and Geldof whitewashed the G8's policies in Africa.

AFRICAN LAND GRAB

Activists are furious about "The New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition" which is pushing African countries into agreements that allow foreign companies to grab their land, patent their seeds and monopolise their food markets.  Ignoring the voices of their own people, six African governments have struck deals with companies such as Monsanto, Cargill, Dupont, Syngenta, Nestlé and Unilever, in return for promises of aid by the UK and other G8 nations.

The ONE campaign, co-founded by Bono, stepped up to defend the interests of African leaders and those of their people, in its exaggeration of the role of small African companies. Worst of all, they fail to even mention the injustice at the heart of the New Alliance – its promotion of a new wave of land grabbing. My curiosity was piqued.

Bono praised the New Alliance, in a speech just before last year’s G8 summit in the US. Much of his ONE campaign’s primary funding was came from the likes of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, two of whose executives sit on its board. The foundation has been working with the biotech company Monsanto and the grain trading giant Cargill, and has a large Monsanto shareholding. Bill Gates has responded to claims made about land grabbing in Africa, asserting, in the face of devastating evidence and massive resistance from African farmers, that “many of those land deals are beneficial, and it would be too bad if some were held back because of western groups’ ways of looking at things“. Africans, keep getting ommitted from this story.

BONO: THE FRONTMAN

In his brilliant and blistering book The Frontman: Bono (in the Name of Power), just released in the UK, the Irish scholar Harry Browne maintains that “for nearly three decades as a public figure, Bono has been … amplifying elite discourses, advocating ineffective solutions, patronising the poor and kissing the arses of the rich and powerful”. His approach to Africa is “a slick mix of traditional missionary and commercial colonialism, in which the poor world exists as a task for the rich world to complete”.

Bono, Browne charges, has become “the caring face of global technocracy”, who, without any kind of mandate, has assumed the role of spokesperson for Africa, then used that role to provide “humanitarian cover” for western leaders. His positioning of the west as the saviour of Africa while failing to discuss the harm the G8 nations are doing has undermined campaigns for justice and accountability, while lending legitimacy to the neoliberal project.

BONO'S BUDDIES

Rubbing elbows with those in power, is a Bono staple. He claims to be “representing the poorest and most vulnerable people“. But talking to a wide range of activists from both the poor and rich worlds since ONE published its article last week, Bono and others like him have seized the political space which might otherwise have been occupied by the Africans about whom they are talking. Because Bono is seen by world leaders as the representative of the poor, the poor are not invited to speak. Bono is their mouthpiece.

Bono's "ONE campaign" claims to work on behalf of the extremely poor. But its board is largely composed of multimillionaires, corporate aristocrats and US enforcers. Here you will find Condoleezza Rice, George W Bush’s national security adviser and secretary of state, who aggressively promoted the Iraq war, instructed the CIA that it was authorised to use torture techniques and browbeat lesser nations into supporting a wide range of US aims.

Here too is Larry Summers, who was chief economist at the World Bank during the darkest days of structural adjustment and who, as US Treasury secretary, helped to deregulate Wall Street, with such happy consequences for the rest of us. Here’s Howard Buffett, who has served on the boards of the global grain giant Archer Daniels Midland as well as Coca-Cola and the food corporations ConAgra and Agro Tech. Though the main focus of ONE is Africa, there are only two African members. One is a mobile phone baron, the other is the finance minister of Nigeria, who was formerly managing director of the World Bank. What better representatives of the extremely poor could there be?

Bono hangs with the worlds's worst war criminals: Obama, the teleprompter reading president who bombs kids for a living and gets a peace prize. The inconvenient lie that is Al Gore. War mongering senator John McCain. Mr Eugenics himself Bill Gates. Wanted war criminal Tony Blair. Dragonlady and best friend of mass pedophile Jimmy Savile, Queen Elizabeth II.

HOW RICH IS BONO?

Bono is on the board of the Elevation Partners private-equity firm, which attempted to purchase Eidos Interactive in 2005 and has since gone on to invest in other entertainment businesses. Bono has invested in the Forbes Media group in the US through Elevation Partners.

Elevation Partners became the first outsider to invest in the company, taking a minority stake in Forbes Media LLC, a new company encompassing the 89-year-old business which includes Forbes magazine, the Forbes.com website and other assets. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but reports said the stake was worth about €194 million ($250m). The firm also owns a 1.5% stake in social networking site Facebook, originally purchased for $210m. Bono's stake was valued at approximately1 billion in February 2012. [REF]

BILLIONAIRE BONO PAYS NO TAXES

As Bono and his bandmates took to the Pyramid Stage, activists from direct action group Art Uncut inflated a 20ft balloon emblazoned with the message “U Pay Your Tax 2?” exposing U2's offshore tax avoidance.

There is a well-known if dubious story that claims that at a concert in Glasgow Bono began a slow hand-clap. He is supposed to have announced: “Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.” Whereupon someone in the audience shouted: “Well fucking stop doing it then.”

Bono's doesn't pay taxes because he actually has no income. U2 are, at this point, wholly owned and scripted. They do not write any of "their" songs and have not for quite some time, if ever. This is why they advocate for the death programs in Africa. Bono is nothing more than a mouthpiece for his corporate masters. Is anyone surprised, really? An entertainer that isn't an elitist?

THE HIVE MIND

Hollywood / LA / New York / London..these are cities run by one group, zionists. They undermine societies and governments with subversion and deciet. They rile up the young with false movements against injustice, preach communism and socialism, not to bring people to together for peacful cooperation, but to instill in them the hive mind so that they can collectively destroy the tenents of the pillars of society, individuality, family and the right to freely profit from your work.

Britan was conquered by deciet. Russia, Germany, and for the past 100 years the United States has been under the control of the zionists. They have even created the false sense of opposition in our two party system. Bono is a tool of the zionists who own and run Israel and control most of the "western" governments.
