    President Trump, you are continuing Clinton State Department policies. Clinton took 5-20 million from Ethiopian Billionaire (Alamoudine) for pay to play. State department is doing this to fulfill the pay to play promises and make Ethiopia happy. Please change this policy and bring peace to the region. I hope some of his admins read this.

    Do you support keeping USA’s housing dollars in housing?

    USA’s Members of Congress will be home from April 10 to April 21. Reach out and schedule a visit!

    Congress will be in recess from April 10 to April 21. Now is the perfect time to attend a town hall or to schedule an in-district meeting or site visit with your federal lawmakers. Use this time educate them about the importance of affordable housing, why potential budget cuts will hurt people with low incomes, and how we can increase affordable housing resources through tax reform.

    Here are some resources you can use:

    Spring 2017 Issues Guide: Learn more about the top five critical issues before Congress and what advocates can ask their Senators and Representatives to do.
    Advocacy Toolkit and Webinar: The toolkit includes talking points, sample op-eds, tweets, and how-to’s for setting up in-district meetings and site visits. The webinar includes information on President Trump’s budget proposal and tips to effectively engage lawmakers.
    A Place Called Home report and Success Stories: This report shows why affordable housing is a smart investment in health, education, economic mobility and the economy, and includes more than 100 success stories from across the nation.
    Town Halls In Your Community: Check out townhallproject.com to see if your lawmakers are holding town hall meetings. Here are some questions you can ask:
    Question 1: Only 1 in 4 people who need housing assistance actually get this help, and the spending caps only make this worse. Unless the caps are lifted, programs that keep roofs over the heads of many people in our community will see funding cuts. Where will these families go if they are evicted from their homes or have to live out of their cars?
    Question 2: President Trump ran his campaign promising to rebuild communities. But his budget proposes to eliminate resources that our state uses to revitalize distressed areas, build senior centers and health clinics, help families get out of shelters and into homes, and help low income families become homeowners. Do you think President Trump has broken his promise?
    Question 3: Many have said that President Trump’s budget is dead-on-arrival. But it is not enough to oppose President Trump’s budget. HUD’s budget has already been cut to the bone. The only way to solve this problem is to lift the spending caps that would make it impossible to address the housing crisis in this country. Will you commit to this?
    Question 4: Republicans in Congress are currently discussing ways to reform the mortgage interest deduction in tax reform. This raises the question of how Congress should invest the significant savings to lower tax rates or to reinvest in affordable homes for people with the greatest needs. Do you support keeping housing dollars in housing?

    Congrats I hate to see this ugly rabid and demented Esayas.

  5. dergu temelese says:

    If wishes were horses beggars would ride them. I afraid TPLF is weak as the writer indicated. The regime may force Hailemariam Desalegn to step down. What will happen after that? There are two likely scenarios in the future Ethiopian Politics.Scenario 1/ A new cabinet led by TPLF military government may be formed. The role of this military government will be maintaining the political power of Tigrians to the end.Tha ultimate goal of this military government will be dismantling the rest of Ethiopia and transferring all the resources to Tigray. Finally TPLF will establish A strong Federal Government with Eritrea called Tigray Tigign State. Scenario 2/ Regional States together with regional opposition powers will create their own strong military forces and expand their own territory. The most dangerous regional states would be Somalis and Tigrians. Endless civil war will erupt in the country. Lawlessness will prevail in the central regions of Amhara and Oromia.

    Did anyone watch the interview this demon gave to this hateful outfit called OMN?

    OMN should have given such an interview to Al-Toweel a long time ago. Why not? He has been footing the bill for this media outfit along with el-Sisi. I used to be very upset at that demon whenever he blows his dragon breaths all over. But I don’t do that anymore. Because I came to grips that he has gone mad. Just listen to the contempt he has for my very proud Oromos. After all this mumbo jumbo from him, we can be rest assured that he is still hell bent in starting a blazing fire in the old country. Distortion, distortion, distortion, all up to ad nauseam. Al-Toweel Isaias gets high in starting fire. He has been doing that since the early 1970’s. You can find about that if you read some of the books written by the former leaders of the EPRP and TPLF. He knew these two groups would come to blows at each other sooner or later. Anyone could predict that just by looking at their programs. What did he do? He trained and armed both individually and sent them separate ways to the same region of Tigray. It did not take them too long to go after each other’s throat. Didn’t they? He is now training and arming a multitude groups of lost souls knowing for fact that if all these groups march in victory into Addis(Finfine), that city will be engulfed in a raging inferno in a heartbeat. Not only there but extremely destructive mayhem will rage throughout the old country. That will be his high, his orgasm!!! Because in my book he is a condemned pyromaniac. He tried to start fire in Djubouti between our Issa and Afar brothers and sisters. He failed. He thought he would start fire in the Sudan. He failed again.. He has been trying to start an inferno in the old country in 1991 and thence forward. He has failed flat on his face again and again so far. One thing I like in this interview is the response he gave this nitwit so-called reporter about the onslaught the TPLF successfully launched on the 20,000 soldiers of the Lencho front. He was actually telling the dummy that it was the Ibsa’s, Lencho and their friends who should have been accountable for the most embarrassing fate that had befallen in the name of my very proud Oromos. The fact was that Isaias himself devised that heinous scheme with the then cousin Meles and the Sebhats in all. That mooncalf reporter should have known that. ‘Many Oromos don’t trust you since then’. What is that? What a stupid question is that? Hello!!!! This demon Isaias is a bona fide pyromaniac. He has found loaded flints in the bodies of Berhanu Nega and Ibsa but these flints failed to spark fire. Therefore he failed flat on his face once again.

    OMN, how much did you make from this smitten interview? I am giving you an order to not come back without giving the same opportunity to el-Sisi. Oh, don’t forget the Wahhabis and your Eyal-al-Souq bankrollers in Doha. I propose a raise to Jawar for this state of the art interview!!! Disgusting!!!!

  9. Ittu Aba Farda says:

    Who knows that there is a 2nd part of an extended interview with this demon? I did not but there was one in which Al-Towell Isaias confirmed to us that he is the only one who holds the catholicon that will get rid of all the ills ravaging us.

    There you have it. The entire history of our glorious people is nothing but a distortion. It is twisted and distorted beyond repair for us, the children of those legendary people who never submitted to outside enemy forces. Now according to Al-Toweel Isaias he is the only witchdoctor who holds the trick to jolt us out of this curse. So he is speaking!!! Quiet, my countrymen!! Al-Toweel Speaks!!! For distortions sake he finds himself beholding to us all!!! So We should Listen!!! We the people of that country of the proud people should take stock in the fact that our history, every bit of it is distorted. We are distorted as people. Oromos are distorted!!! Amharas are distorted!!! Tigrayans are distorted!!! The Afars, Somalis, Sidamo’s, Gambellas, certain people he called ‘Shankilas’ and everyone in that old country is distorted species of some sorts. He and he alone with 190+ IQ is the only one who holds the remedy. For this and this qualification alone, he has been given the sole historical responsibility of lighting fire among us so we can un-distort ourselves out of this predicament. According to his witchcraft cookbook, we are evil creatures and must kill each other to oblivion. To this end, he has been handing out instruments of destruction like candies to those who shed away their Almighty given self-respect. He has surrounded himself with lost souls in bodies of G7, OLF, ONLF and many others they don’t even know the names he gave them. We heard him saying that he has been dispensing tools of death and destruction since the days of EPRP, MEISON, TPLF, OLF on and on. And those two journalist wannabes were sitting there and taking it all in. What a shame!!! What a shame!!! One thing he was very, very honest is the story he told us how the late PM decided to build a dam on the Blue Nile. Isaias had revealed to his masters in Cairo that Ethiopia is going to start constructing a dam just as a revenge to Arabs. What a down dirty snitch!!! The issue of building a dam on the Nile is not new. Meles was not the first one to think about it. The late Emperor was the one who ordered the survey to see the feasibility and cost about it way back in the 1960’s. Nasser had the wind of it and there was a huge hoopla there. One of my classmates there used to drive me nuts about it. What a despicable creature this Al-Toweel is. It is beyond shameful. It is disgusting.

  10. Ittu Aba Farda says:

    That demonic Isaias!!! He is trying his best to fulfill his servitude to el-Sisi by sending his ‘well trained’ mercenaries to blow up a public infrastructure. One way he is sending such mercenaries to do harm to his generous neighbors and on the other hand he is letting millions of his unemployed youth outside his country as ‘refugees’ so they can send remittance to fill his coffers. He has a long and extensive expertise in that area. He and his predecessor ‘liberation’ front used to send thousands of young Eritreans to the Arabian Peninsula on prearranged work permit visas including young women as comfort ladies. Then he used to get a cut from their earnings. One Ethiopian Afar who I know from his days in Afdem(Aware) who now lives in Germany told me the other day how the new Eritrean refugees there send part of their earning including the refugee assistance they receive from the government and charity organizations to government sanctioned account in Eritrea. Many of them were seen going back to their country immediately after they obtain residence papers and traveling documents and safely returning to Germany. He told me that comparing how long he took him to go back to Ethiopia to visit his relatives after he came to Germany as a refugee in the 1970’s. It took more than 15 years and a change in a regime for him even to officially send any money let a lone to go back as a visitor. He told me that the word ‘refugee’ has become a ‘relative’ term when it comes to those from Eritrea. This phenomenon is happening all over Europe. You see Isaias is tired of being called a despot by the EU. Then he gave each and every one of them the mother of all refugee onslaught by flooding them with ‘refugees’ from his hellhole joint. He goes ‘you want trouble? I will give you some trouble!!! Here is a headache for you’. That friend has been talking to many such refugees and has found out that almost none of them are willing to talk anything bad about Al-Toweel Isaias. They blame just lack of jobs because of the effects of ‘unfair’ sanctions imposed on their country. That demonic Isaias!!! He knows how to play the card very well to his advantage. He will continue flooding Europe with his ‘refugees’. I had mentioned my suspicion about this ‘refugee’ issue and how the demon could be part of the scheme when all in a sudden the exodus of the Eritrean youth became news the first time around. Boy, did I take a clubbing by his operatives disguising as bona fide Ethiopians? They still do that whenever I drop any type of comment on this and other websites.
