Newscast Media WASHINGTON—Yesterday, Newscast Media reported that President
Barack Obama had deployed troops to Uganda to search for warlord Joseph Kony. We
raised issues questioning the timing of deployment to the Great Lakes.
It appears the article got the White House’s attention, and Obama this morning has
submitted a supplemental report to the Speaker of the House, explaining why he is
doing what he is doing.
“As I previously reported, U.S. forces will not themselves engage in Lord’s Resistance
Army forces unless necessary in self-defense. This deployment is in furtherance of
the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States, including the
policy expressed in the Lord’s Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda
Recovery Act of 2008, Public Law 111-172, enacted May 2010.
“I have approved this deployment pursuant to my constitutional authority to
conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive.
“I am making this supplemental report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress
fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution (Public Law 93-148),”
Obama wrote. “I appreciate the support of the Congress in this matter,” he added.
Newscast Media will monitor the situation closely and update our readers about any
new findings that emanate from this undertaking.
Newscast Media WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama is sending troops to Uganda
to hunt the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony according to a news reports.
The administration has not revealed how many special forces it is sending to Africa,
however, according to FOX, National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden
told the Associated Press that the aircraft would be based in Uganda but will be used
in LRA-affected areas of the Central African Republic, Congo and South Sudan to
support the African Union’s regional task force. CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>
Newscast Media WASHINGTON—According to news reports, elusive rebel leader Joseph Kony, is said to be in contact with the president of the Central African Republic to discuss his surrender. Deutsche Welle reports that on Thursday, Central African Republic president Michael Djotodia confirmed that talks with Kony over a possible surrender were underway.
With his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), Kony fought a brutal war against the Ugandan government in the north of the country for some 20 years before fleeing into the jungles of central Africa.
However, on Thursday, a statement was issued by the US State Department, saying US officials have little reason to believe that Kony is part of the LRA group currently in contact with CAR officials.
“Many times in the past, Joseph Kony and his senior commanders have used—and we believe will continue to use—any and every pretext to rest, regroup, and rearm, ultimately returning to kidnapping, killing, displacing and otherwise abusing civilian populations,” the State Department said.
Realistically, it would not be in the interest of African nations to have Joseph Kony surrender because once he is arrested, the West will then focus its attention on prosecuting leaders within Africa for committing atrocities and human rights violations against their own citizens.
The continuous search for Kony makes African leaders relevant because the West has to depend on them, and also provide the necessary resources and weapons, just like the war in Somalia is beneficial for African nations because the continuous fighting makes the peace-keeping forces relevant to the West, since the West is the one financing and maintaining the forces fighting within Somalia.
The rationale of the West’s involvement is that if fighting and civil strife ends, then the U.S. interests in Africa will be secure, therefore in order to establish a footprint in Africa, the West has to ensure that the atmosphere in Africa is conducive for implementing the plans they have for the Continent.
African leaders are not stupid. They see beyond the veil, and in order for Africans themselves to protect their own domestic interests, they have to make sure that the atmosphere is uncomfortable for the West to want to set up camp permanently, which explains why Africa always seems to have pockets of fighting every now and then, in different regions.
These pockets of fighting, on one hand, are simply mechanisms to keep the West at arm’s length to prevent Africa from being re-colonized by foreigners, yet on the other hand, the atmosphere is safe enough for foreign investors, tourists and expats to live peacefully on the Continent, without trying to impose their will over native Africans.

Newscast Media SAN DIEGO, Calif.—Russian news agency Russia Today (RT) was among the first to break news that filmmaker Jason Russell, the maker of the controversial documentary Kony 2012 has been detained by police for masturbating publicly. San Diego Police Department Lieutenant Andrea Brown told a local NBC affiliate that Russell was found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of an unknown substance at around 11:30 am on Thursday. He was reportedly pinned down to the ground by several bystanders until the cops arrived. The entire act was caught on video of a fully-naked Russell indulging himself in broad daylight.
Because of his inaccurate portrayal of Kony, Jason Russell’s movie has been criticized by virtually every Ugandan who has watched it, even in the Acholi region from where Kony hails, because it creates a problem where none exists. Kony has been inactive since 2006, and is in neither Uganda nor the Central African
Jason Russell obviously suffers from a condition whereby he has the urge to defile himself in public. It will not be surprising if the Ugandan government investigates whether Russell committed the same kind of behavior around the children in Uganda that he worked with while in the East African country. Such sexual deviation in
Psychology is referred to as a paraphilia.
A paraphilia is a sexual deviation in which the person has either acted on or has recurrent urges and fantasies involving unsuspecting people or non-human objects. The paraphilias below involve unsuspecting people:
(i) Exhibitionism: Is characterized by exposing one’s genitalia to a stranger, often with the intent of shocking the unsuspecting victim. Some take it as far as masturbating in public to make the shock more extreme.
(ii) Voyeurism: Comprises urges, acts or fantasies of observing an unsuspecting person disrobing or engaging in a sexual activity. (Also called “Peeping Tom”). Sexual contact is not the goal. Viewing the undressed body is the primary motive.
(iii)Frotteurism: Involves recurrent and intense sexual urges or acts of inappropriately touching or rubbing against a non-consenting person. Unlike voyeurism where physical contact is not the goal, frotteurism requires contact. The act of “dry humping” also falls in this category. (Many travelers say they feel sexually violated at the TSA airport checkpoints after being groped around the gluts, chest area, and mid-section area).
(iv) Sadism (the giver): This is where an individual receives sexual gratification by inflicting physical pain upon others. (Sadists love to punish others).
(v) Masochism (the receiver): This is where an individual receives sexual gratification by being humiliated, bound, or made to suffer. (spanking, whipping and bondage).
A clear example is in the popular comedy from the 90s called In Living Color, where one of the male characters gets in trouble and when caught jokes: “Slap me around and call me Susan!” (Masochists enjoy being punished).
The second category involves non-human objects:
(vi) Fetishism: Comprises an extremely strong sexual attraction to and fantasies involving inanimate objects such as female undergarments. The fetish is often used as a sexual stimulus.
(vii) Transvestic Fetishism: An intense sexual arousal obtained through cross-dressing. This should not be confused with “transsexualism” which is a gender identity disorder in which one identifies with the opposite gender.
Psychodynamic treatment and structured behavioral exercise are effective for these sexual deviations. In psychodynamic treatment all sexual deviations represent unconscious conflicts that begin in early childhood. The treatment involves helping the patient understand the relationship between the deviation and the unconscious conflict that produced it. The methods of “free association” and “dream analysis” can be applied to eliminate the deviation. (Understanding Abnormal Behavior, Eighth Edition, pages 307-350).
