Africa-Locust (Grasshoppers) Invasion An outbreak of billions of locusts continues to swarm parts of East Africa the region, already suffering from extreme hunger.”
Desert locusts has been destroying crops in Kenya in the worst infestation to hit the nation in 70 years.
Now the swarms are spreading further across the region.
Locust have moved into northeastern Uganda and Puntland region of Somalia.
A single swarm can contain 150 million locusts per square kilometer of farmland.
A medium size swarm of the voracious insects can eat the same amount of food as the population of Kenya.
Food insecurity, 10 million people in places affected by locusts, another 20 million people in the region are in danger of going hungry.
Officials warn immediate action is needed before rainfall in the weeks ahead brings fresh vegetation to feed new generations of locusts. If left unchecked, they say their numbers could grow up to 500 times before drier weather arrives.
The U.N. has asked for $76 million in immediate aid. The United States said Monday it has released $800,000 and the European Union has released 1 million euros.
Don’t spend 10’s of millions of dollars spraying the locust.
If the people concerned are ‘truly’ hungry’ stop whining, Catch, Roast, Toast or Eat Locust fresh while still alive.
Problem solved, feed Africa’s hungry and end the locust invasion problem.
Colin Kaepernick to stupid to speak in public without adult supervision.
Colin Kaepernick accused the United States of targeting minorities just days after President Trump’s administration ordered a drone strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
Kaepernick said “There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism.” Kaepernick decried “American imperialism” and its “policing and plundering of the nonwhite world.”
Kaepernick continued by saying “America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad,” he wrote. “America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the nonwhite world.”
Kaepernick’s comments came amid left-leaning criticism of President Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani, who led the elite Quds Force within the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC); the U.S. government has long considered him a terrorist.
Colin Kaepernick is so ignorant that he doses not know that dead Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was an Iranian citizen and as such he certainly was not in the minority in Iran.
Qassem Soleimani was a criminal, he was a terrorist, a threat to Iraq, Saudi Arabia and many other countries in the middle east.
He was a threat to American military men and women in the middle east. He was a terrorist threat to America’s allies, America’s government and American citizens.
President Trump’s actions were the correct actions to take. President Trump did the right thing for the right reasons at the right time to eliminate this Iranian terrorist.

dildo Idiot, Governor Gavin Newsom, a Liberal Socialist Democrat blames Washington D.C. for not acting effectively to solve California’s homeless crisis.
In recent remarks, Newsom claimed the White House was “not serious” about the homelessness issue and was playing politics with it instead.
The San Francisco Chronicle in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home district applauded Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson’s efforts on the homeless problem, adding that Newsom appeared more inclined to play up the homeless crisis for “political gain.
California has a significant number of people with disturbances in their mental capacity that should be safely locked away to protect them and the public from harm.
Many homeless have drug addictions, and people who simply cannot afford to live in a place where you have so many regulations that drive up the cost of everything.
Secretary Ben Carson (HUD) dismissed Governor Gavin Newsom’s calls for more HUD vouchers, saying such aid came from a nationwide pool of money that “doesn’t grow because (Newsom in a money grab) you say, ‘grow it.
