Obamacare: How Republicans Can Win By Making Peace

As efforts to repeal the ACA sputter, the GOP can refocus on protecting private enterprise from the voracity of a health-care industry that takes too much and delivers too little. “The old order changeth,” Tennyson wrote in 1912, “yielding place to new.” For three-quarters of a century, Americans have been debating whether the state should guarantee health coverage for all. With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the “yes” ... Read More »

Why Putin is world’s most powerful man

In my latest documentary, we describe Russian President Vladimir Putin as the most powerful man in the world. But why? After all, the United States — and China, for that matter — are more powerful countries than Russia. The power of a head of state is determined both by the country’s strength and the capacity he or she has to exercise that power, unilaterally, unconstrained by other institutions, parties and ...

The GOP’s Obamacare repeal plan is out–and it’s even worse than anyone expected

After weeks of expectations — actually, nearly seven years of expectations — House Republicans on Monday released their proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Elements of the proposal, which was kept under lock and key last week — have been dribbling out for a few days. The text of the bill encompassing the GOP plan validates much of that reporting. On the whole, however, it’s a nastier, more consumer-unfriendly ... Read More »


Fellow Nigerians, as for me and my house, no news could be bigger and sadder than the gory death of my dear friend and brother, Onukaba Adinoyi-Ojo. This has been a week of major events but none touched me as mightily as that of Onukaba, one of Nigeria’s finest journalists. Where and how do I begin to tell you about Onukaba? I first encountered him on the pages of one ... Read More »


I am not at all sure if a persistent subconscious inability to come to terms with the knowledge that I am over fifty years of age is peculiar to me. Why is it that the fact of this advancing years prey on my mind all the time? It is made all the more perplexing by the fact that the biological age progression; the life and death cycle; is the most ... Read More »

Focus on Your Goals, Not Your Enemies

I have just returned from President Olusegun Obasanjo’s 80th birthday celebrations in Abeokuta, Ogun state (actually I’m still in the car driving back to Lagos) and I am very proud that Nigeria is blessed to have had a man like Obasanjo as a citizen. Let me say that the event, including the unveiling of his Presidential library, the first of its kind in Africa, was a gathering of The Who-is-who ... Read More »

International Women’s Strike and What It Meant

On Wednesday, the staff of the Cut took part in the International Women’s Strike, a day where women were encouraged by grassroots organizers to withdraw from paid and unpaid labor, take to the streets, and stand together in solidarity with “feminism of the 99 percent.” Up until the day, we had numerous conversations about what the strike would mean, and if its critics were worth entertaining or not. While our ... Read More »

World War III: The Complete History of Drake & Jay Z’s Cold War

Unlike J. Cole, Drake doesn’t seem to care if his idols turn into his rivals. Since becoming the rapper-everyone-loves-to-hate, Drake has beefed with Common, Pusha T, Diddy, Ludacris and even Kanye West to varying degrees, but none has blown hot and cold quite like his rivalry with Jay Z. Over the last eight years, Drake and Hov have traded as many compliments as they have bars. The budding relationship they ... Read More »

“You prepare for a phone call your mother has passed. You don’t prepare for a phone call that your mother has been RAPED” Some of the victims can’t speak. They rely on walkers and wheelchairs to leave their beds. They have been robbed of their memories. They come to nursing homes to be cared for. Instead, they are sexually assaulted. The unthinkable is happening at facilities throughout the country: Vulnerable ... Read More »
