Tonight host Kasaun E. Henry asks the world: Who is responsible for dealing with the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian school girls last month?
Is this merely a domestic quarrel that Nigeria ought to resolve alone? Should this involve other countries? What kind of conflict are we dealing with? Is it political, religious, or both? What are your thoughts?
One thing for sure, this horrible abduction by the Islamist group Boko Haram signals a clash of ideals in the World of Ideas!
Tune in tonight and speak your mind.
Rick Santorum is a former Congressman and Senator from the state of Pennsylvania, and is co-founder of the online and grassroots Patriot Voices organization. In 2012 he was a leading candidate for the Republican nomination for president, winning 11 states and over 4 million votes. His latest book is entitled, Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting To An America That Works.
Michael Rubin is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a senior lecturer at the Naval Postgraduate School's Center for Civil-Military Relations, and previously edited the Middle East Quarterly. His latest book is titled “Dancing with the Devil: The Perils of Engaging Rogue Regimes.”
It's been nearly three weeks since men dressed as soldiers kidnapped more than 300 girls from a Nigerian boarding school, an attack that has critics decrying the lack of action from a military that may not have the capability to mount an effective rescue operation.
“It’s really hard to say what will happen,"said Brandon Kendhammer, assistant professor of political science at Ohio University, who focuses on religion and politics in northern Nigeria . "The Nigerian military doesn’t have a particularly strong track record in being able to free hostages.”
Although they haven’t claimed responsibility, nearly all have pinned the kidnappings on the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, which had threatened to take young women captive almost a year ago.
Nigerians have expressed their outrage that the girls have not been found, accusing the government, even with its limited military capacity, of not doing more.
Well Donald Sterling has taken the award for most annoying person away from George Zimmerman so far in 2014. Why this man thinks it is a good idea to open his mouth is beyond me. But we will discuss his interview with Anderson Cooper today. Also the social media waves are all a buzz about Michael Sam and his being drafted into the NFL and the congratulatory kiss he shared with his boyfriend. Also on the "entertainment" front, it seems that elevators are no longer the safest place to jack a MoFo up anymore; Beyonce' and Jay Z had to content with a mad sister outbreak and well, WOW.
On the serious news line, the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria are still holding those 200 some girls and making videos now? America and other countries are onboard to help President Goodluck Johnson.., (Lawd help us) and his country get the girls back. Maybe the terrorist leader should contact Al Qaida and ask them how making videos works out for THEIR leadership! Oh wait, Al Qaida has condemned the kidnapping of the girls. What an interesting time we live in now.
Speaking of interesting times; Monical Lewinsky article in Vanity Fair has Faux News doing crazy talk again. Seems they believe Hillary Clinton put her up to it to generate sympathy votes for 2016.
Focusing on the major and sometimes overlooked topics affecting us in America today, the Nitelifer Circle of Sanity examines what is going on in Baltimore MD, Seattle WA, and all parts of the country in between. The “Media” is or isn't talking about it, but regardless, The Nitelifer Circle of Sanity is! We hope to enlighten and educate while delivering the seriousness of the issues with sarcasm and humor. Whether it is politics or social issues, The Nitelifer Circle of Sanity will be there.

Nigerian President Umaru Yar'Adua has died at his presidential villa following a long illness.
The government announced seven days of national mourning and said the president would be buried on Thursday. Vice-President Goodluck Jonathan has been sworn in as head of state in a ceremony in the capital Abuja.
Mr Yar'Adua, 58, came to power in 2007 promising many reforms. Analysts say he made the most progress in tackling unrest in the oil-rich Niger Delta.
Nigerian TV interrupted normal programming to announce the news in a brief statement early on Thursday.Mr Yar'Adua's election in 2007 marked the first transfer of power from one civilian president to another since Nigeria's independence in 1960.
The life of Nigerian President Yar'Adua
He came to power promising a long list of reforms, including tackling corruption and reforming the inadequate power sector and the flawed electoral system.
He made progress in banking reforms, but analysts say he made the most progress of his tenure in tackling unrest in the oil-rich Niger Delta, by offering an amnesty to rebels. The BBC's Caroline Duffield, in Jos, central Nigeria, says President Yar'Adua will be fondly remembered as a quiet and softly-spoken man whose integrity was respected.US President Barack Obama has led tributes from world leaders, praising Mr Yar'Adua's profound personal decency and integrity" and his "passionate belief in the vast potential and bright future of Nigeria's 150 million people".
Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai described it as "a great loss for Nigeria".

Goodluck Jonathan . After a political drama that makes President Barack Obama's scuffles with centrist senators seem boring by comparison, Jonathan has emerged on top. Nigeria's elected president, Umar Yar'Adua, fell ill. Then he disappeared to Saudi Arabia for two months. Soon, his wife, Tarai Yar'Adua, began stage managing on her husband's behalf, refusing to relinquish power.
"We must hit the ground running," Jonathan said.
Jonathan made his first trip to Washington this week as head of state for Obama's international nuclear security summit, where 47 countries made pledges to decrease the likelihood of loose nuclear material getting into the hands of terrorists. Nigeria is a Key Strategic Partner in Africa.The nuclear summit is also one indication of Nigeria's strategic importance to the United States, which continues to grow in the 21st century. Of course, other than providing America with $26 billion worth of petroleum every year, Nigeria has the largest military in the African Union, is an active member of the United Nations, and has led peacekeeping missions on the continent and around the world. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton underscored this heightened attention when she and Nigerian foreign minister Yayale Ahmed signed a framework establishing a binational commission to fight corruption and promote development in Nigeria. "We hope it will support the aspirations of the Nigerian people for a peaceful, prosperous, stable, democratic future," Clinton said when signing the accord. Jonathan's meeting with Obama at the White House was equally polite, both countries acknowledging the "importance" of the other. oil.In the End, It's About Oil. Nigerians Citizens and DIASPORA must take on civic duties,and demand for transparency and CHANGE!
