Not quite accurate. According to Scientific Evolutionists, ALL Peoples originated in Africa.

Because The Roman Empire occupied Countries in Africa, Somalia, Ethiopia, they are a mixed - Italian-African Bloodline. Just like Cleopatra was Greek-African Bloodline from The Ptolemy Line.

So, the Italian Race didn't "originate" in Africa. The Bloodline originated in Italy from The Etruscan(s) People. But the Italian and African Race(s) did mix.

Remind us again why we should trust the gubbymint?

"In three instances, cardholders who were not acquisition professionals
purchased gym memberships that required pre-payment for services
totaling $2,867. Two of those purchases were for family memberships,
and not just the EPA employee."

EXACTLY what I was saying about the word SECURE just a moment ago. I'm going to have to go to the audience on this one, Bill.... Well, folks, who here thinks the dollar value of "fair share" should tote up to the cost of the two POINTLESS wars, the TSA, and "Homeland Security?" You know the old saying, "You make it, you buy it."

Why would Israel have a plane identical to the missing Malaysia Airlines plane in storage in Tel Aviv? The plane is Boeing 777 2H6(ER)- 28416/155, an identical twin of the missing plane, which has been in a hanger in Israel since November 2013.

Could this plane be part of a false-flag terror plot in the making?

Culture of fear (or climate of fear) is a term used by certain scholars, writers, journalists and politicians who believe that some in society incite fear in the general public to achieve political goals.

Fears are usually exaggerated or irrational in nature.[1][2] The term has also been used to describe irrational fear in other contexts, such as citizens fearing persons of different ethnic backgrounds, or neighborhood residents fearing retribution if they assist police in identifying criminals.[3]

For you, carol...

Former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski argues that the use of the term War on Terror was intended to generate a culture of fear deliberately because it "obscures reason, intensifies emotions and makes it easier for demagogic politicians to mobilize the public on behalf of the policies they want to pursue".[4]

Frank Furedi, a Professor of Sociology at the University of Kent and writer for Spiked magazine, points out that today's culture of fear did not begin with the collapse of the World Trade Center. Long before 11 September, he argues, public panics were widespread - on everything from GM crops to mobile phones, from global warming to foot-and-mouth disease. Like Durodiť, Furedi argues that perceptions of risk, ideas about safety and controversies over health, the environment and technology have little to do with science or empirical evidence. Rather, they are shaped by cultural assumptions about human vulnerability. Furedi say that "we need a grown-up discussion about our post-11 September world, based on a reasoned evaluation of all the available evidence rather than on irrational fears for the future.[5]

British academics Gabe Mythen and Sandra Walklate, argue that following terrorist attacks in New York, the Pentagon, Madrid, and London, government agencies developed a discourse of "new terrorism" in a cultural climate of fear and uncertainty. UK researchers argued that this processes reduced notion of public safety and created the simplistic image of a non-white "terroristic other" that has negative consequences for ethnic minority groups in the UK.[6]

In his 2004 BBC documentary film series, The Power of Nightmares, subtitled The Rise of the Politics of Fear, the journalist Adam Curtis argues that politicians have used our fears to increase their power and control over society. Though he does not use the term "culture of fear", what Curtis describes in his film is a reflection of this concept. He looks at the American neo-conservative movement and its depiction of the threat first from the Soviet Union and then from radical Islamists.[7] Curtis insists there has been a largely illusory fear of terrorism in the west since the September 11 attacks and that politicians such as George W Bush and Tony Blair had stumbled on a new force to restore their power and authority; using the fear of an organised "web of evil" from which they could protect their people.[8] Curtis's film castigated the media, security forces and the Bush administration for expanding their power in this way.[8] The film features Bill Durodiť, then Director of the International Centre for Security Analysis, and Senior Research Fellow in the International Policy Institute, King's College London, saying that to call this network an "invention" would be too strong a term, but he asserts that it probably does not exist and is largely a "(projection) of our own worst fears, and that what we see is a fantasy that's been created."[9]
