n this time of great world tribulation and mass suffering the faith of many is wavering as they try to make sense out of all of the tragedies, both natural and unnatural, that have occurred over the past five years. To cope with the constant feeling of trepidation and hopelessness many turn to ‘the passion of the Christ’ and the myths surrounding his supposed birth, ministry, death, and subsequent resurrection as a means of spiritual and emotion reassurance and comfort. While that may seem well within itself, persons of Ba-Tu descent, as well as the world at large, must be reminded that they were many

Esoteric Universe
Occultism, Cartoons, and the Muntu
By Jabulani Durojaye Introduction: If most individuals looked in retrospect at their childhood, often times they would fondly remember their favorite cartoons or comic book, but would be oblivious to the occult undertones of their favorite heroes. The exploits of extraordinary beings have been around for decades, but the arcane ground work was laid down in the 1960’s.

Fall 2005

Welcome to the second edition of NYANSA. It pleases us to say that the premiere issue was a resounding success! We sincerely appreciate the receptivity of the community as well the moral and spiritual support of those few ‘conscious’ brothers and sisters who continued to tell us to push ahead because ultimately what we’re doing would and does matter in the grand scheme of things. Asante sana! (Thank you!) To our detractors, we say... “The voice of truth shall overwhelm evil.” With that said, we hope this second edition is just as well received or even better received than the first. This time out we decided to spice things up a bit by including a very powerful revolutionary piece by literati Kefentse Bandele. For those who were bowled over by The Case Against Marijuana, Pt. 1, and anxiously awaiting Pt. 2, it was decided at the last minute due to an influx of new information that a more potent version could be presented, so rest assured that Pt. 2 will appear revised and more informative in the November issue. Know for a surety that the words therein are inscribed for ‘the chosen P.’ Rekh Tchenu! (Know thyself!) Enjoy!

Chronology of the Barbarians
By Jabulani Durojaye nce again the the bestial conglomerate known to the possessors of melanin, as the Western world have further put themselves in a position to reinvigorate neo-colonialism. As the soap opera of terrorism continues to assassinate common sense, the true purveyors of theft, debauchery and other criminal acts unspeakable, prepare to launch an assault unjustified on people of color. This warning has come from individuals riding the wave of pseudo-conservatism via personalities such as Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, and Rush Limbaugh: one man in particular, veteran radio personality Paul Harvey made the following assertion July 5, 2005 on the European intervention in Iraq....”Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and into this country by giving small pox blankets to Native Americans, Yes that was biological warfare! And we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land from whomever. And we grew prosperous. And, yes. we greased the skids with the sweat of slaves”. In the end Harvey stated we our not made out of sugar candy. Harvey’s contemporaries such as Savage and Limbaugh defend the murderous actions perpetrated by the United States, even demanding incarceration of any who dare criticize its august body. Those drunk from the intoxicant of power often forget that those they bring justice to, call them rapist, that which you call democracy, they call tyranny, your form of aid is nothing more then thievery with a smile. History is a misnomer for those of strength to distort, transform and in the end abolish truth. At this time let us go back in time sequestered from the myopic and away from colored republican/democrat wannabees and know the......Chronology of the Barbarians !!!

“Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and into this continent by giving small pox infected blankets to Native Americans, Yes that was biological warfare! And we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land from whomever. And we grew prosperous. And, yes, we greased the skids with the sweat of slaves.” --Paul Harvey
The few examples named went into retarding the moral, psychological and intellectual growth of those born in the sixties into the present. Such illusions of justice and liberty are no more relevant then a bird unable to fly and be among kith and kin. Barbarism knows only the way of might but in the end did not such a path destroy their progenitors?

Music Reviews
Babatunde Olatunji: Drums of Passion
nyone who is familiar with traditional drumming cannot help but appreciate Babatunde Olatunji. Coming to the United States via Atlanta to attend Morehouse College, those unfamiliar with music from Africa would become acquainted with it with the release of “Drums of Passion” in 1959. This without a doubt is one of my favorite releases from a artist from the continent, beginning with a song of praise on side one ‘Chan-go’ (Shango) followed by gems on the same side such as ‘Ah-key-woh-woh’ (Akiwowo). Not withstanding is ‘Gin-go-lo-bah’ (Gin-go-lo-ba), and side two shows the listener that true music needs little words, as Baba-GeeUn-Day (Baba Jinde) and Oh-yin-Maw-Maw-Ah-Dough (Oyin Momo Ado) move your body relentlessly as if one is back in the Motherland. Babatunde Olatunji made his transition April 6, 2003, and with his mixture of traditional drumming and jazz this pioneer of African music stands as a giant in a genre that currently is about marketing instead of talent. Five stars!!!

The Broken Okoma:
The Ultimate Betrayal of J.B. Danquah
By Jabulani Durojaye

Kwame Nkrumah’s infatuation with power grew to the point of eradicating real or imagined adversaries; this exercise in egotism went as far Nkrumah declaring himself “President for Life”, with Gestapo forces to discourage attempts on his life (many of which were C.I.A. orchestrated). This reached its apex with J.B. Danquah being sentenced to Nsawam Medium-Security Prison for challenging the C.P.P. Danquah would die at the age of 69 in this prison, and what followed was even more shocking. Nkrumah passed an edict stating J.B. Danquah was not too be mourned or his life and accomplishments celebrated. Osegyefo would later pay for his naivete, and arrogance with the C.I.A. supported coup that put Col. E.K. Kotoka in power. While Kwame Nkrumah made a monumental contribution to Pan-Africanism becoming pervasive, we must remember irrespective of melanin the old adage “absolute power, corrupts absolutely”, and learn that African socialism cannot work towards uplifting the collective continental or in the Diaspora. For this system ignores morality, ethical conduct, and the Nsaman Pa. If we look at the indigenous culture in its quintessence their was no separation of spirituality, and the political body, that is a European phenomenon. And this is why as a system African socialism has failed because African leaders trained in Eurocentric pedagogy were all too willing to accept the ways of the west. So when we pick up the ‘Akan Doctrine of GOD’, or read the speeches of the Doyen of Ghanaian politics, let us remember J.B. Danquah for helping not just Ghana but those in America who rediscovered themselves.

Pictured left are: J.B. Danquah, and brother, Okyenhene Nana Ofori Atta 1.

etrayal is a flaw inherent in most people, but when utilized as action whom which you betray cannot only hurt the individual it is directed towards, but taint a legacy as well. Kwame Nkrumah, Osegyefo (the liberator, of the sons and daughters of Nyame) assumed a place in the hearts of European Marxists, and African revolutionaries of the western world, but left out of the narratives of this staunch panAfricanist is a sad chapter of the failure of socialism and the covenant broken with another pan-Africanist. Who played just as an important role in Ghana’s independence from British domination? Nana Kwame Kweretwie, or more commonly known to African intelligentsia and nationalists as J.B. Danquah, Danquah a brilliant literati and champion of Ghanaian culture would die in prison ironically by the decree of his former student, Nkrumah whom he taught at Achimota College known in the present day as The University of Ghana).

Without question this is a all too tragic trend in African socialist regimes. In Guinea, Ahmad Sekou Toure who would rule Guinea for twenty-six years, became a despot and butcher, even jailing Kwame Toure. Nkrumah politically was educated in London and the United States. Upon becoming Ghana’s prime minister on March 6,1957; Nkrumah would exhibit erratic behavior in his rule as well as a consummate need for self-aggrandizement. J.B Danquah served as the opponent, and antithesis to Nkrumah’s (Convention People’s Party: C.P.P.) and this aided in sealing his fate.

pt. 1

f the truth be told the importance of friendship and brotherhood cannot be stressed and emphasized enough. When in our youthful years the actual significance of friendship flies by most because all too often persons are seen as instantaneously replaceable. Hence, by the time most Westerners have reached the age of 18 they have had on average 5 to 10 supposed best friends and 10 to 20 assumed good friends. Of course such trivializing of human relationships just frankly does not exist in places where the highly contagious disease of capitalism and gross individualism have not been allowed to infect the general populous. people compreTraditionally, Ba-Tu hended the necessity of age-grade grouping and the importance of ‘vowed brotherhoods’ (as well as ‘vowed sisterhoods) as a stabilizing force required to insure the peace, productivity and protection of any given nation.

Native American “Centurious”). This is the scenario; Johnnie Blaze is the son of cyclist Barton Blaze, who was lost during a motorcycle stunt. His mother Clara died during childbirth. Raised by cyclist Crash Simpson, Johnnie Blaze indulged in negative occultism. This implores him to make a bargain with the demon lord “Mephisto” to save the life of Simpson who is afflicted with a rare blood disease, and thus the Ghost Rider is born! Possession, sorcery and the fostering of demonic forces were a staple in the Marvel Universe in the 1970’s. For the record, Nicolas Cage is the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, who brought “The Godfather” to life. Ironically, Mario Puzo the author of the “Godfather”, enjoyed a short stint at Marvel comics. On this plane there are no coincidences, apprentices for darkness, just like for light is groomed. battles the forces of evil with his magical deck (or more commonly Tarot deck, which was created in Atlantis and used in Kmt).

Whether negative or for marshaling sentinels to battle fallen gods, it starts with children, for their imagination is a powerful weapon indeed. Who creates and controls the cartoon/comic world? Answer, adults and many are occult adepts who are planting the seeds of good and evil using a powerful tool, which is curiosity.

Daimon Hellstrom:

“The Son of Satan” Daimon Hellstrom, this a name Marvel Comics will not acknowledge, but in 1973 he made his debut in Marvel Spotlight. For comic enthusiasts he was known as “The Son of Satan”, the half-breed demon and prince of hell is the son of Shaytaan and Victoria Wingate, and has a sister Satana who would have purely malevolent qualities. Anticipating a backlash the rueful campaign in misinformation was encouraged, with Marvel writers stating this Shaytaan is not the one of the Christian faith. Verily, many archdaemons existed millennia ago in other religious folklore such as “Iblis” in Al-Islaam, and “Angra Mainyo” in Zoroastrianism. Classes of demons include lesser demons, servant class (or those born with a human), or the Lords, which are the fallen or cast down during the time of birth and infant like ignorance of man. Battling in other dimensions, “The Son of Satan” would exist in the mortal realm with the occupation of demonologist, and occult researcher. Joining the Defenders, he would marry fellow member Hellcat fading into the comic abyss in 1983.

Conclusion
May those who desire esoteric knowledge stand with the ‘Banjele’ (angelic beings of light) and not the ‘Ajogun’ (fallen ethereal beings, who plot the destruction of mankind), and know that if a child stands against their caretakers the nation implodes.

The Adventures of Goku Dragonball Z, The Adventures of Goku, in fact are the chronicles of the Sumerian Gods. Goku and Vegeta are none other then the deities ‘Enki’ and ‘Enlil’, the two brothers who were bitter rivals. Themes of demi-gods saturate the cartoon (this is the Sons of GODS, and the Daughters of Men) teaching the lesson that when bloodlines are diluted it more than often results in a hybrid race that subsequently loses the glorious legacy of its superior parentage. The Z fighters represent many of our progenitors, such as Piccolo (Zulu), Krillin (Twa), Tien (Dravidian), and Yamcha (Ashanti). What is well concealed is the ability to utilize the ‘kundalini’ energy and astral projection to do things that are superhuman to the mind of a child.
