Clinton’s Pivot to Africa: Food Stamps Print E-mail

African Hillary.jpgU.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton contends that Africa is nothing more than a charity case and it’s wrong for China to transform the continent into a more developed economy. She hopes to bring President Barack Obama's ‘Food Stamp’ culture to all over Africa.

According to the Guardian, “Hillary Clinton’s morally superior speech in Africa was deluded. Clinton’s warning about the exploitation of Africa’s resources was hypocritical, given the strings attached to past US assistance.”

Mrs. Clinton complained at African countries for arranging more business deals with Chinese companies to escape poverty. She claims they’re “exploiting the continent’s resources. She contends that “democracy and human rights” are more important than jobs and higher income levels.

As reported by the Guardian, “the subtext was all too clear, and the Chinese government was predictably swift to react. China’s official news agency, Xinhua, said the statements were part of a hidden agenda ‘aimed at least partly at discrediting China’s engagement with the continent and curbing China’s influence there.”

Perhaps, Hillary Clinton is defending the business interests of pharmaceutical lobbies that are major donors to the Democrat Party. Drug companies are pushing for more restrictive patent laws in several nations such as Kenya.
