List of Whites Murdered in South Africa During 2013 Compiled by Sunette Bridges

Sunette Bridges posted this list on her Facebook page today. The list contains the names of whites murdered in South Africa during the course of 2013 only.

The first question liberals would ask is 'Why whites only?". The answer is quite simple, because whites care!

The white community is blessed with people like Sunette Bridges and others actually taking the time, trouble and expense of documenting these murders for us. Or is Sunette Bridges also expected to do this on behalf of other groups also? Would the blacks, coloureds and Indian community do this for whites?

While liberals are focused on denying these murders, lists like these prove the minimum number of whites murdered, because each and every one of these cases have been referenced and verified. So even with all the best efforts of internationally funded businesses like Africa Check and others, they cannot deny these murders. While we cannot state that this list is a complete list of all the whites murdered, it does prove the minimum number of whites murdered between January the 1st 2013 and December 31st 2013.

While Sunette's message is written in Afrikaans, the list of murdered whites is compiled in English.

South Africa - A Failed State, But Denied to Make the ANC Look Good

According to a letter published on News24, South Africa's debt will soon reach R1,7 TRILLION (1,700,000,000,000 or 1700 BILLION)

“This is the first time I have felt anxious about the future,” “We never felt pessimistic, we felt optimistic all along, but now, I feel worried for the first time.”  admitted Leon Louw, a prominent anti-apartheid activist and executive director of the South Africa-based Free Market Foundation.

Please see "Further Reading" at the end of this page

How much is a R-billion?

Earning R60,000 per year would take you 16,700 years to earn R1-billion.

The year 2013 ended with the news that South Africa’s state debt was rising alarmingly high. While the debt equalled 27% of the country’s gross national product (GNP) five years ago, it has now risen to 40%.

When SA's debt reaches R1,7-trillion it would mean that each citizen would owe R33,300 without having bought anything, BUT 99% of all taxes are paid by only 3.3 million South Africans.

This means that of the R1,7-trillion, 3,3 million South African tax payers would be responsible for R1 683-billion of that total debt, which means that they would each be responsible for R510,000 of SA's debt.

Mandela’s legacy: The Collapse and Destruction of South Africa

"We all know that land reform is one of the trickiest and most emotional issues facing South Africa. If handled badly, it could even create civil war. It could certainly lead to food shortages, prices going through the roof and an increase in food imports we can ill afford." - Clem Sunter

"South Africa’s credit risk is rising relative to emerging-market peers on investor concern the nation may get downgraded as economic growth sputters and borrowing costs increase."

"Moody’s Investors Service and Standard & Poor’s have a negative outlook on the nation’s debt."

"South Africa’s default swaps are the fourth-highest among 25 emerging and major markets monitored by Bloomberg."

"The rand’s 18 percent plunge against the dollar this year, the worst out of 16 major currencies tracked by Bloomberg, is threatening to fuel inflation, reducing the central bank’s room to stimulate the economy."

Source: SA credit risk rises on downgrade worries

“This is the first time I have felt anxious about the future,” admitted Leon Louw, a prominent anti-apartheid activist and executive director of the South Africa-based Free Market Foundation. He told WND that throughout all of the turmoil in South Africa in recent decades, “We never felt pessimistic, we felt optimistic all along, but now, I feel worried for the first time.”

The beautifully decorated rotten egg hailed as a saint

So it took a beautifully decorated rotten egg to draw blinded sheeple from their closets.

Here was a rotten egg that was painted with absolute care over a prolonged period of time, along with much patience and planning. Much thought went into its design, for this rotten egg was to be marketed to the world as the absolute masterpiece, the most perfect piece of artwork the world had ever seen.... a ruthless terrorist presented as a pacifist, as a man of peace, a peace-maker and a saviour, a hoax if ever there was one.

Suddenly now we are finding more-and-more people, even supposedly conservative people, people promoted as "leaders", praising the painted rotten egg, wishing Mandela well, forgiving him and wishing for him to "Rest In Peace", that beautifully painted rotten egg.

Nelson Mandela "Speak now or forever hold your peace"

We see it all day each and every day on Facebook, on Twitter, in the newspapers, we hear it on the radio, see it on Television.

Behold, the messiah of the ignorant, childish, feeble-minded sheeple.

Most people of the world are like the mice, the rats and the children of Hamelin blindly following the Pied Piper, entranced by the beautiful, hypnotic sounds coming from his flute that leads them to hell.

It is sickening to see how people are praising a man who refused to renounce violence until the day he died, the very same man who gave the order to shoot to kill at Shell House, a massacre of Zulus, and this after he was released from prison, the man of peace, the man that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the man who pleaded guilty to his acts of treason and terrorism at the Rivonia trials.

What makes Mandela different and special?

A listed terrorist until 2008 that went around hugging people and those hugs turned him into a humble saint, a "flame that lit the world and symbolised hope."?

Is it not strange how simple hugs and pretentiousness charisma could suddenly change people's perception of a terrorist?

"One could change a man's personality, but never his character." The character of a terrorist can never be changed. Once a terrorist, always a terrorist.

Did Jacob Zuma's Nkandla really cost more than Mandela, Mbeki, de Klerk and PW Botha's residences?

I'm not all that impressed, let alone shocked, by the latest chart doing the rounds, comparing the taxpayers' money wasted on the homes of the past five presidents.

I'm beginning to think that it is all propaganda. Now I am certainly no Jacob Zuma fan, but I think we have to be reasonable at all times. What is good for the goose is good for the gander, right?

Firstly, at least R91 million should be added to Mbeki's figure, because the R12 million mentioned in the chart, which mysteriously excludes the R 91 miliion spend on building a wall from imported materials around his house.

it also does not mention all the money ever spent on all Mandela's residences.

Self Determination - Boer Republics, Volkstaat, Secession


“There are three classes of people: Those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not want to see.” - Leonardo Da Vinci

Self determination has been on the cards for many years and the belief that the old Boer Republics should be re-established and returned to the Boers has been with us for decades. The question is whether any of these are achievable, given our situation, differences and history.

There are mainly five ways of handling problems and obstacles: Fight, Flight, Ignore, Circumvent, or Join.


One could face it head on and confront it with brute force and determination.

This approach always comes at a price. Wars are good examples.

Wars always cost money and lives. Even the victor will be left with many scars.

The Ant and the Grasshopper... New South African Version

This one is a little different .......Two Different Versions ......

There are Different Morals


The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

South African business outlook is at its lowest level on record

South African business outlook is at its lowest level on record, down from 71% in 2011 to 18% for the next 12 months into 2014, according to Grant Thornton’s International Business Report (IBR) quarterly tracker survey.

The amount of R30.8-billion squandered by the SA Government is 24% up on last year's R24.8-billion of wasted taxpayer’s funds and according to some economists the total figure could be closer to R100bn or more.

South Africa's economy is in decline following the strike in the motor industry, according to the BankservAfrica Economic Transaction Index (Beti).

"This is disappointing and could indicate that the 3% growth expected for next year may be a pipe dream if no improvement occurs in the last two months of the year", economist Mike Schüssler said.

The monthly and quarterly Beti showed an actual decline of 1.3% and 1.5% respectively.

Robert McBride the man nominated by the SA Police Minister as new head of the IPID

His father Derrick Robert McBride and mother Doris were teachers at a Clairwood school. His maternal grandparents were Collin Campbell van Niekerk, a White Afrikaner, and Grace, a Coloured daughter of a Zulu-speaking mother and a Coloured father.

His father opens a workshop 'Utility Services'. At some point in 1978/79 his father begins burglar guards, fire-staircases and other light engineering steel work, where McBride assists. Robert is also involved in the collection of payment from customers, and has many encounters with gangs.

December 1980, Robert McBride receives his school leaving results, expecting high marks in Maths and Science. The results are poor and for the first time he stands up to his father, explaining the results by saying that he had to work for in the family business.

In 1981 McBride gains entrance to the University of Natal and begins studying Mechanical Engineering. He fails his first semester at university and subsequently drops out. He again works with his father for 3 months and then as a dock shiftworker for another 4 months.

Today is the last day to register for South Africa's 2014 elections

There are many arguments for and against voting next year.

We are working towards a solution for our situation. Many argue that voting in this system is legitimising a corrupt, illegal system, which is all fair enough.

The problem is this, many people hate the hydrocarbon-driven internal combustion engine and we are working towards engines running on water and electric vehicles, but in the meantime, while working on those new engines and systems, we are still forced to drive petrol / diesel vehicles.

We have been working on those new technologies for decades and it would be many years before we get to using new technologies. In the meantime we cannot refuse to use petrol / diesel vehicles, because in so doing we'll never be able to get where we want or need to be. Whether we like it or not, we have to use what we have in order to get where we want to be.

We are still stuck in this system and we need to survive and fight for our rights right here in this system while we are stuck here. With no one in parliament to argue and fight on our behalf, to fight against racist BEE and AA Laws being passed, we would be dead in a year. We still have to be there and the stronger the voice we have inside the better the chances of us surviving until we get where we are hoping to end up.

Not voting is foolhardiness that cost us in the past.

What we need to agree on is who to vote for, which I've discussed in the past and explained why. If we cannot even agree on something as simple as that, how the heck could we ever agree on the solutions to much greater problems facing us in future.

25 Rules of Disinformation and 8 Traits of a Disinformationalist

Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.
Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it -- especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it's not reported, it didn't happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant.
Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used to show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the 'How dare you!' gambit.

3. Create rumor mongers.
Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method works especially well with a silent press because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such 'arguable rumors'. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a 'wild rumor' from a 'bunch of kids on the Internet' which can have no basis in fact.

SA Land Redistribution a Scam to Acquire Land Cheaply for Mining Houses?

One of the most important articles I've read since 1994

Mining - Anger flares up

"War is going to break out here. Remember what happened in Burundi. Brother turned against brother over the miderals and the land. You are bringing a blood-bath to South Africa."

"If I were you, I would rather go away," Edward Raselabe of the Leshiba community forum told employees of Coal of Africa (CoAL) at a community meeting day before yesterday.

Raselabe said he and his tribe members own much land in the Limpopo River Valley thanks to successful land reform claims.

But, according to him, the SA government gives transfers the land to the rightful owners, just to take it away again by giving the mineral rights to mining houses.

But Mashudu Ramanu, who's business, Terracotta Resources, holds shars in CoAL, said the extraction of coal in the area north of the Soutpansberg should be seen as a “sunshine opportunity”.

158 White South Africans murdered to date in 2013 in Black-on-white attacks!

The following list was meticulously compiled by Sunette Bridges

"...and the Government sits idly by while Julius Malema and his followers continue threatening White South Africans with more violence! I am convinced that allowing EFF to register as a political party is a violation of our Human Rights and I am convinced that EFF is nothing other than a militant wing of the ANC and a clever ploy to distance themselves from the murders and attacks on white South Africans."

The experience and thoughts on Red October of a Brit married to a Boerseun

By Claire Smith

"A copy of my status update on my Facebook page. The experience and thoughts on Red October of a Brit married to a Boerseun:

An eye opener

I went on my first protest march yesterday – another item checked on the ‘things everyone should do before they die’ list. I attended the Red October march. According to the media reports on the march I must have turned into a right wing, fascist, Nazi, apartheid supporting crazy since I moved here. That’s not true. I was brought up in London, one of the most diverse cities on the face of the planet and I marvel at the fantastic range of cultures that this earth plays host to. Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t give a flying monkeys whether you are white, black or green with sky blue polka dots – AND THAT HAS NOT CHANGED.

When incompetence becomes a scape goat for terrorism in South Africa

The so-called "white widow" Kenya Mall terrorist has been moving in and out and around in South Africa for months.

Hillary Clinton warned the ANC regime four years ago against terrorist training and recruitment activities in South Africa. "The minister and I are well aware that al-Shabaab is recruiting young Somalis from South Africa, Australia and the US to become suicide bombers, to participate in their efforts to turn Somalia into a safe haven for terrorism," Clinton said at the time.

"Recent sightings of her were brought to the attention of the South African police intelligence by a security organisation linked to the local Jewish community."

The police’s crime intelligence unit failed to follow up on these warnings and conduct any surveillance on this terrorist, despite having been given intelligence information about her.

Staan op my volk

Deur Willie Cloete - Leier van die Federale Vryheidsparty (FVP)

Het u al gewonder hoekom daar hoegenaamd ‘n blanke Volk hier in Suid-Afrika gevorm het? Hoekom hulle ‘n eie identiteit opgebou het? Hoekom daar ‘n eie taal Afrikaans ontstaan het? Hoekom daar vir hulle ‘n eie land gegee was?

En dan, hoekom is daardie Volk vandag moedeloos, voel verraai en wil nie meer op staan vir sy regte nie?

Dit is ‘n vraag wat baie van ons wil beantwoord hê.

Hierdie is my eie mening.

The Last White Flag in South Africa

"There is one great thing that you men will all be able to say after this war is over and you are home once again. You may be thankful that twenty years from now when you are sitting by the fireplace with your grandson on your knee and he asks you what you did in the great World War II, you won't have to cough, shift him to the other knee and say, "Well, your Granddaddy shoveled shit in Louisiana." No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, "Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Third Army and a Son-of-a-Goddamned-Bitch named Georgie Patton!" - General George S. Patton, Jr.

Ten years from now when South Africa is like Somalia and your grandson asks, "So granddad, what did you do to try and ensure a future for us?" What would you say? Would you able to tell your grandson that you started a blog to inform the world about what was really happening here? That you opened a Twitter account and built a following so as to spread the real news about South Africa under the fascist ANC regime? That you opened a Facebook account where you could share your opinions and actively partake in serious discussions that directly impacted upon our future? Would you be able to tell him that whenever Steve Hofmeyr, Sunette Bridges, Afriforum, Dan Roodt or others arranged a march, that you were there to support their efforts every time? Or...

"I don't give a fuck for a man who's not always on his toes" - Genl. George S. Patton

"I don't give a fuck for a man who's not always on his toes." ... "A man must be alert at all times if he expects to stay alive."

"There are four hundred neatly marked graves somewhere in Sicily, All because one man went to sleep on the job"

"It is rather interesting how you get used to death. I have had to go to inspect the troops in which case you run a very good chance — or I should say a reasonable chance — of being bombed or shot at from the air, and shelled or shot at from the ground.
I had the same experience every day which is for the first half-hour the palms of my hands sweat and I feel depressed. Then, if one hits near you, it seems to break the spell and you don't notice them anymore. Going back in the evening over the same ground and at a time when the shelling and bombing are usually heavier, you become so used to it you never think about it."

"Yes, every man is scared in his first battle. If he says he's not, he's a liar. Some men are cowards but they fight the same as the brave men or they get the hell slammed out of them watching men fight who are just as scared as they are. The real hero is the man who fights even though he is scared. Some men get over their fright in a minute under fire. For some, it takes an hour. For some, it takes days. But a real man will never let his fear of death overpower his honor, his sense of duty to his country, and his innate manhood."

Why Africa Check failed to disprove Steve Hofmeyr - Whites ARE dying like flies

The media has been deliberately suppressing the truth about the murders, rapes and other atrocities in South Africa since 1994.

This suppression has been growing to the extent that certain groups and the media have been targeting prominent human rights activists like Steve Hofmeyr, Sunette Bridges, Dr. Dan Roodt and others, discrediting and ridiculing them.

Off course while the South African media has always praised overseas singers and artists for their human rights efforts, typically the same media has been demonising local singers and artists for their human rights activism. This has always been the case and is standard procedure for the South African media.

How this is done is best summarised as follows:
"Negative publicity are quickly reported on with the extent and seriousness of the issue white-washed to be quickly ignored for further scrutiny and buried in the cemetery of Consequenter. Think of Obama’s Fast & Furious scandal or Benghazi or the IRS scandal or…or…or…Think of how various reports by the Public Protector on DA controlled municipalities are swept under the rug and made out as less than what they actually are.

Criticism and detractors of the person [in the case of South Africa, the ANC government] is dealt with quickly, harshly and in the most vicious manner often resulting in character assassination, threats and personal insult. There are many examples of this available today – MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and CNN’s Piers Morgan are masters at the above when any criticism is levelled at Barack Obama’s Administration with the racism card being played often as an ad hominem audi alteram partum. The UK Media and UK Government’s treatment of the EDL, Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer whom are all anti-Islamisation of Western Society. In South Africa we have Naspers’ media arm Media24 who has appointed themselves as the guardians of what may and may not be said by independent thinkers and Conservatives about Mandela, the ANC and the DA. They often employ the services of ideological hit-men or groupings such as AfricaCheck – which is funded by George Soros’ Soros Foundations – Max du Preez, Leopoldt Scholtz and Tim du Plessis with a sprinkling of lesser opinionadas covering the rear guard. Naspers very often censors the opinions of counter-thinking individuals skirting the SA Press Code, International Council for Press and Broadcasting and the right to free speech entrenched in the SA Constitution." - The Cult Personality & Idolatry
In the latest, most publicised attack on Steve Hofmeyr, initiated by the new kid on the block, Africa Check, the media went out of their way to discredit and ridicule Steve Hofmeyr as much as possible. (See "Related Articles")

Throughout the article Africa Check tried to ridicule Steve Hofmeyr with immature assertions like "non-experts to support some form of race-based conspiracy theory", "a race-crime mythology", accusing him of making "sweeping statements" and so forth, which certainly is not becoming of an organisation hoping to earn respect as "fact-check" experts .

So Who is Africa Check?

Trust is earned through the test of time, not through marketing and self-acclaim. Africa Check has, by their own admission, only been in existence for short while, yet they proclaim themselves trustworthy beyond reproach?

How Liberals' Denialism Bred A Culture of Entitlement Among SA Blacks

The Tshwane Metro is paying too much for goods in order to benefit certain providers. They pay R4,320 for a 40mm galvanised pipe that could be purchased for R439.

Well someone has to take care of the poor blacks who were given Black Economic Empowerment companies with huge Government contracts to get them started.

Did you know that according to liberals this is how it worked in the days of the NP, pre-1994?

According to liberals whites were given such preferential treatment, while blacks were not.

Remember that according to liberals white South Africans kept blacks locked up in cages and we are said to have gone hunting blacks on Sundays just for the hell of it. That is what liberals have always been telling the outside world.

According to liberals blacks were denied opportunities in SA. Blacks, according to them, were denied jobs, blacks were even denied school education and were not allowed to attend universities.

According to liberals whites were all made rich by the NP government, we were given houses for free together with free water and electricity.

According to liberals our children went to school and universities for free and all white school leavers were allowed into university, even if they did not graduate with a matric.

Yes that is what the liberals have been telling the world over the decades.

As jy nog nie verstaan waarom jy Naspers MOET boikot nie.....

Naspers is gebore uit die Afrikaner se bydraes en Naspers is gebou uit die bydraes van Afrikaners. Naspers se aandeel prys is op n rekord hoogte van R755 per aandeel.

Soos alle ander liberale groepe en besighede is Naspers ook besig om stelselmatig uit Suid-Afrika te onttrek. Naspers maak reeds meer as 50% van sy inkomste in die buiteland.

Noudat Naspers nie meer die Afrikaner nodig het nie, nou steek hy die Afrikaners in die rug, soos mens kan verwag van enige liberale organisasie.

Another black-on-white attack for liberals to deny

Of course, the "Government", SA Police, Statistics departments, and every other piece of liberal flotsam and jetsam in this sick society, not forgetting the media - especially the Liberal Afrikaans media - will wipe this off the table as "normal crime"
Normal for whom??? The savages who committed this cowardly act?? Probably, since they seem to know only excessive violence - which seems to be a "normal" part of life.

But then they actually admit that there is a major flaw in this "equality" theory which they hang on as their pseudo religion.

Another BLACK ON WHITE attack, which ends up in the statistics as "normal murder" and ignored when a case is being made to prove once again that the level of violence by BLACKS ON WHITES is totally out of proportion, and can not be seen as anything other than Genocide.

On Monday night, 01 July 2013, Dirk Koekemoer (79) and his wife Rita (75) were attacked and overpowered by FOUR black attackers when they arrived at their little Nissan 1400 LDV in Geduld, near Springs on the East Rand, ‎#Gauteng South Africa.

Another senseless murder to add to the ongoing genocide in South Africa

"I can't wash my hands. I can't. This is my husband's blood."

The chilling words of Laura du Plessis (45) while she looked at her hands with the dried blood of her husband who was murdered in their house last night, on a smallholding at Vaalbank near Bonkhorstspruit, South Africa.

Less than 12 hours earlier she was asleep next to her husband Roelof (46).

Then 5 black armed terrorists entered their house.

They went to their son Riaan's room, assaulted him, threatened him with a firearm, and demanded to know who else is in the house. They then took him to the living room.

Roelof woke up from the noise and went to see what is going on. He then bunped into the terrorists. Laura also woke up and rushed out of the room armed with a flashlight. When Roelof saw one of the men was heading for her, he started fighting with him. They then started shooting. 

Laura went to hide in the en suite bathroom and telephoned for help.

Was Nelson Mandela jailed for his "political beliefs?" - An extract from Bulala

The following is an extract from Bulala: A True Story Of South Africa by Cuan Elgin :

It is a common misconception that the ANC’s leader in the 1994 elections, Nelson Mandela, had been jailed for his “political beliefs.”

He was in fact acquitted of treason after a 4-year trial, but re-arrested a few years later, and sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for launching an armed insurrection (as founder and commander-in-chief of Mkhonto weSizwe, the ANC’s militant wing).

He was then later charged with 193 counts of terrorism: for sabotage and for trying to smuggle, prepare, or manufacture (mostly Soviet-bloc) munitions, including: 210,000 hand-grenades, 48,000 anti-personnel mines, 144 tons of ammonium-nitrate, 21.6 tons of aluminum powder, 1,500 timing devices,b and 2,000 lbs. of black gunpowder. Among his many alleged co-conspirators were 3 'white' communist: Denis Goldberg, Arthur Goldreich, and Lionel “Rusty” Bernstein.

Nelson Mandela’s personal Makarov pistol (for killing white policemen”) which he buried in Rivonia before his arrest during the ANC’s “armed struggle,” was never recovered. These were clearly not “trumped-up” political charges. In his eloquent closing statement to the court, Mandela candidly admitted his guilt on the charge of sabotage, adding that he was, if needs be, prepared to die for his ideals.

Liberals are out to kill all forms of conservatism

"The impact of having a deputy minister of agriculture representing a “rightwing political party” could have a detrimental effect on perceptions about commercial farmers. "

The ANC doesn't lose votes due to poor education standards as 70% of ANC voters never finished school. The uneducated is their support base.

It says so much for the level of intelligence of the average leftist liberal who thinks the sun shines from people like Nelson Mandela and other ANC cadres.

It makes sense then that the liberal scum that was left to float on sewage dams would launch this latest onslaught against conservatives. We're experiencing more-and-more attacks against the right of freedom of association guaranteed in South Africa's beloved and trusted Constitution.

I mean, the Constitution is so loved that even the conservative right is so blinded by it that they are building their hopes on the guarantees provided in that piece of toilet paper.

We often read about conservative leaders proclaiming their rights in terms of the SA Constitution, the very Constitution that guarantees, "Freedom of speech" under the State Secrecy Bill, the right to work and practice a profession of your choice under Affirmative Action and BEE policies, the "Right to freedom of association" like Kleinfontein and Orania, the "Right to life" with 50 people murdered each and every day in SA, the "Right to safety and security" in the Rape Capital of the World.

Amazing how some people feel so protected by the Constitution, while the Constitution has meant nothing to anyone in this country thus far, but we are demanding our rights.

Things you did not and will not learn in any South African school

~ Bill Gates~

This should be posted in every school or kid's bedroom.

Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this!

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about eleven (11) things they did not and will not learn in school.

He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

(While this should apply to South Africa, and although South Africans should learn from this, they will not, because here life owes them and here everything gets blamed on Apartheid. In the history of Africa they've never needed to take responsibility for anything, because they could always blame it on colonialism or on Apartheid)

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it! (In South Africa, Zimbabwe, etc. , they disown the whites to make it fair, then call it equality in the name of democracy )

Where do most Highjackings occur?

By October 2011, South Africa's vehicle population was 10,156,186, according to the eNaTIS.

64,504 (176 per day) cars, worth more than R9-billion, were stolen and 10,627 vehicles were hijacked in 2011.

This means that of the 570,012 vehicles sold in 2011, at least 75,131 occurred due to theft and hijackings.

Source: So South Africa is a stable economy built on solid rock is it?

It should be noted that the majority of hijackings take place in front of private residences, usually in the drive-ways.

In front of private residences 51%.
Victims sitting in parked cars 10%.
At traffic lights 7%.
At a stop street or yield sign 6%.
At business premises 5%
Victims forced off road by decoys 4%.
While taxis are loading/offloading passengers 4%.
At shops, post offices and telephone booths 3%.
Victims parking, that is to say either starting, leaving or approaching parked cars 2%.
Victims stationary and working at the roadside, that is to say repairing telephone cables 2%.
While loading and offloading goods 2%.
At other intersections 1%.
At filling stations 1%.

Apartheid - the ANC's scape-goat yesterday, today, forever

The African National Congress (ANC), supported by its Tripartite Alliance with the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) and the South African Communist Party (SACP), has been the ruling party of "post-apartheid" South Africa on the national level since it won a majority of seats in the first multi-racial election on April 27, 1994. It increased its majority in the 1999 elections, and further increased it in 2004, with 69.7% of the votes. In 2009 its share of the vote reduced slightly, but it remained the dominant party with 65.9% of the votes.

Today South Africa is recognised as the official Rape Capital of the World!

The NIMSS report reveals that in a single year, 2000, more South Africans died unnatural deaths than the total number of US casualties during the 12-year Vietnam war.

More people are murdered in South Africa every two months than the total number of people murdered in Ireland over the past 30 years.

Ever since the ANC came to power they've blamed Apartheid for their every failure, including:
  • Violence against women
  • Poor service delivery
  • Failure to deliver textbooks
  • Abject failure of the education system
  • Eskom being unable to keep the lights on
  • Rampant unemployment
  • Derelict RDP Housing
  • Corruption
  • Police Brutality
Isn't it strange how Apartheid is always being blamed for everything, yet the South African Native National Congress (SANNC) was founded on 8 January 1912 already to fight for the rights of the black South African population. (It became known as the ANC in 1923)

Did the US create Al-Qaeda?

Hillary Clinton : We created Al-Qaeda
The title of the following video suggests that Hillary Clinton publicly admits that the US created Al-Qaeda, yet she never even mentioned Al-Qaeda anywhere in this clip. What she did say was that they backed the Afghan mujahideen.

Besides what she said in the clip, it is also generally accepted that:
"The Mujahideen were financed and armed by the United States Central Intelligence Agency during the Carter and Reagan administrations. The CIA provided billions of dollars in arms to the Mujahideen to aid them in their fight against the Soviets." - source

The Reality of Farm Attacks in South Africa: 1990-2012 New edition of Treurgrond

These areas are the most at risk of farm attacks - Solidarity
Ilze Nieuwoudt
09 May 2013

New edition of Treurgrond finds that 19.8% of farm attacks between 1990 and 2012 occurred in Gauteng
(See tables at the bottom of the page)

These areas most at risk of farm attacks - study

3 300 pairs of shoes symbolise the scope of farm attacks

Living on a farm or a smallholding in Gauteng and, on top of that, being older than 60 years place people in the category of being the most vulnerable targets for farm attacks in South Africa. According to research carried out on attacks listed in Kraal Uirgewers' latest book, Treurgrond: Die realiteit van plaasaanvalle, 1990-2012, Gauteng is the most dangerous province in the country for farm and smallholding residents. More than 19,8% of the 3 319 farm attacks recorded over the 23-year period between 1990 and 2012 occurred in Gauteng. The three other northern provinces - Mpulamanga, North West and Limpopo - are the second, third and fourth most dangerous provinces respectively, as 15,3% of the attacks were recorded in Mpumalanga, 15,2% in North West and 12,7% in Limpopo.

The Free State (11,8%), KwaZulu-Natal (11,5%), the Eastern Cape (7%) and the Western Cape (4,7%) are ranked fifth to eighth. The Northern Cape is firmly in the position as the "safest province", as approximately 1,6% of the attacks were recorded in that province. (These figures are based on the number of attacks listed for each province in Treurgrond and are not in relation to the number of residents or the number of farms and smallholdings in the provinces.)

These and other alarming figures were revealed today during the launch of Treurgrond at the Willem Prinsloo Agricultural Museum, east of Pretoria. At the launch 3 319 pairs of shoes were put on display, symbolising the number of farm attacks listed in the book. The number of murder victims was indicated by means of a red ribbon on 1 610 pairs of shoes. Treurgrond describes the attacks on at least 5 818 direct victims of farm attacks over the period 1990 to 2012.

Further research has shown that an average of three attackers are involved in each farm attack and, in some cases, there are as many as 10 attackers. It is clear that attackers choose to work in groups. Approximately 86% of attacks are carried out by groups of two or more attackers.

Moreover, research has indicated that older people are a lot more vulnerable to farm attacks than people in their 20s to 40s. According to the available information in Treurgrond, 42,6% of victims are 61 years and older. Victims who are 51 years and older represent a total of 62,7% of all victims. What's more, 6,1% of the victims whose ages are recorded in Treurgrond are 15 years old or younger.

The first edition of Treurgrond was published in 2011 and mainly consisted of data that had been gathered by TAU SA over many years. Further research was carried out and more than 700 additional farm attacks were included in the new edition. The book was compiled by Dr Dirk Hermann, Deputy General Secretary of Solidarity, Maj. Gen. Chris van Zyl of TAU SA and Ilze Nieuwoudt of Kraal Uitgewers.

The book is available from Kraal Uitgewers at R350 a copy (excluding R40 postage). To place an order, SMS "Treur" to 34388. For more information go to www.kraaluitgewers.co.za or phone 012 644 4329.

More on Treurgrond
Treurgrond: Die realiteit van plaasaanvalle, 1990-2012 tells the stories of more than 3 300 farm attacks spanning more than two decades in South Africa. This book, compiled by Dr Dirk Hermann, Maj. Gen. Chris van Zyl and Ilze Nieuwoudt, is not only the most inclusive register of farm attacks, but also tells of the scars left by farm attacks as seen through the eyes of victims, family members, loved ones, poets and an artist. Striking artworks of celebrated Free State artist Pauline Gutter are included in the book.

A glimpse inside Treurgrond: Die realiteit van plaasaanvalle, 1990-2012

Treurgrond contains, among other things, the following:

- The most inclusive and reliable database of farm attacks that occurred from 1990 to 2012 in South Africa; some 3 300 attacks and at least 1 600 murders are listed.

- Updated and more complete information on attacks such as more details and facts on the attacks, the prosecution of attackers and the sentences eventually imposed on attackers.

- Striking personal stories of victims and victims' families and friends about the trauma, sadness and loss suffered as a result of the attacks.

- Research articles by renowned experts in the field of farm attacks who, among other things, examined the potential effect of farm attacks on the community and the use of excessive violence during farm attacks.

- A proposed model for a basic community safety network formulated by a former police detective and crime expert.

- Artworks on the theme of farm attacks and the vulnerability of the farming community by celebrated Bloemfontein artist Pauline Gutter.

- Eight heart-rending poems that articulate the sadness of loss, anger and bitterness over farm attacks. Two of the poems were written by a father who lost his eight-year-old son in a farm attack.

Why The Republic of South Africa is registered as a company in the US

This, in response to a question asked by a SA citizen, why The Republic of South Africa, is registered as a company in the US. Follow the trail and open documents on the website to peruse information such as this, including what our national fiscus is estimated as being at present:

"Historically, from 1993 until 2012, the GDP growth rate averaged 3.3% reaching an all time high of 7.6% in December of 1994 and a record low of -6.3% in March of 2009. South Africa’s real gross domestic product (GDP) accelerated to 3.2% in the second quarter of 2012 from 2.7% in the first quarter, driven mainly by the primary sector, which includes agriculture and mining.

The 2012 MTBPS projects that South Africa’s GDP growth is expected to improve over the medium term. Real GDP growth is forecast to average 2.5% in 2012 and 3.0% in 2013, 3.8% in 2014 and rising to 4.1% in 2015.

Debt-service costs will continue to outpace the overall growth of expenditure. Following a reduction in November 2010, the SARB’s repurchase rate has subsequently remained at 5.5%. The lowering of the repurchase rate was necessitated by the fall in the inflation rate from 6.1% in September 2009 to 3.4% in October 2010.

The inflation rate in September was 5.5%, and is expected to average 5.3% in the last quarter of 2012, 5.2% in 2013, and 5.0% in 2014.

The current account deficit has widened sharply over the past year and is expected to average 5.9% of GDP in 2012, up from 3.3% in 2011.

The trade deficit detoriated to 1.9% of GDP in the first half of 2012 and net transfer payment nearly doubled as a share of GDP due to an increase in net customs revenue payments to the South African Customes Union.

Export volumes contracted at an annual rate of 6.3% in the second quarter of 2012 after falling by 1.5% in the first quarter of 2012."

The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness

By Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr, MD | Dec 04, 2006

Dr. Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr.,a forensic psychiatrist, explains the madness of liberalism in his new book The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness. You can read an excerpt below, and read more at his website libertymind.com.

Rights are inherent to freedom

Who is the final arbiter of what rights you should have? T.L. Davis writes

The one thing more humiliating than being caught by the authorities in an attempt to fight back against a corrupt and illegal system of government is to be caught not making the attempt.

One cannot look to the Supreme Court, or any court to determine what rights a person has. No matter how clearly it is said, how eloquently it is put, they will find what they want to find and discard what does not serve their purpose of the day.

The only true arbiter of one's rights is oneself. Though many feel the sting of oppression, they will not act. Only those who understand that rights are inherent to freedom and paid for in blood will ever be willing to shed blood for them. It is not a group or an organization that is capable of fighting for your rights, it is yourself, or no one.

Old man shot with AK47 for his cell phone

An old man who drives children around with a mini-bus was attacked by armed robbers in Johannesburg last week. They demanded his cell phone and money and then they shot him twice with an AK47, the terrorist's choice. The photograph is of what is left of his foot after having been shot.

The original Afrikaans posting on Facebook

Vanaf een van my bbm kontakte gekry nou : "My meisekind se oupa was laas week geroof in Jhb, en hul het vir my foto's van sy voete gestuur, hul wou net geld en cell he toe kry hy 2 skotte met AK's in sy voete, ou man en nou is hy gef*k! Hulle maak my mal van kwaad geit!!!!"

Don’t panic – we’ll make it

By Peter Hughes

We've had to deal with shock cost increases before. All we need are cool heads, calm analysis and decision-making.

The massive minimum wage rate increase for farm labour will go down in the history of South Africa as one of the most damaging and short-sighted acts ever committed by our government. Having got that off my chest – what now? Incompetent political leaders are a fact of life and, as managers, we're going to have to learn to deal with them. But how?

In order to survive, a business has to make a profit. There are two ways to do this. Get revenue up. Get costs down. And while I'm about it, let's get one thing straight, once and for all. Creating employment is not up to you, it's government's job.
To do this, government should create an environment for business to thrive. When this happens, employment automatically follows.

As a business manager, you have one job – to run a profitable and sustainable business.

BRICS: While everyone is fighting the Jews the REAL New World is rising from the east

A New World Order?

"Western-style free markets are especially experiencing a systemic collapse and these economic models are not delivering as they once did. The free market system outwardly, at least, seems like it is failing the majority of the people in what is increasingly their growing hour of need. These and a myriad of other such issues have all caused global economic, financial, political, and social tsunamis and the magnitude and impact of these events and crisis has left relatively few national arenas unaffected—be it security in old age, long-term youth joblessness, or energy shortages. This has exposed the combustive fissure of income disparity and has lit a match that has instigated class wars on the wealthy and a sudden proliferation of technocratic unelected governments in the West."

Institutional and Cultural Response to Disintegration

by Bret L. McAtee

My offering here is a modified distillation of this,


Institutions and cultures crumble when they no longer share a set belief system. Denominations fold, and cultures go into civil unrest when a people's belief system is no longer widely embraced. When shared belief system's among a people are shattered one can look for significant balkanization.

However, when the balkanization is underway the Institutions or cultures will try to stave of the inevitable coming crumbling by,

1.) Denial.

This usually entails crying for unity and the attempt to change the subject whenever the conversation turns to the friction of belief systems.

How the ANC is selling-out South Africa to China with the blessings of their supporters

by Hannes Engelbrecht

(See Further Reading list at the end)

The new colonials have arrived.

Without as much as a whisper the South African government allowed at least 400 000 Chinese to swamp the country during the past six years. Chinese migrants, mainly from the overpopulated Fujian province in China, have been shipped off to South Africa at an alarming rate. Spreading all over the country.

Even in the remotest parts, between 6 000 and 12 000 Chinese shops sprang up indicating that the phenomenon is well-orchestrated by both China and South Africa.

Prof Colin McCarthy, retired from the University of Stellenbosch, first noted the Chinese colonization. Says Prof McCarthy: All the evidence indicates that the project to set up such an extensive network of Chinese shops, all following the same pattern and targeting the same market, was well researched, well planned, well organized and well financed.

FEMA says - Get a Survival Kit - Eskom may collapse this winter

SA Public Enterprise Minister warns of tough winter
Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 04:08pm

South Africans should brace themselves for what could be the most difficult winter as electricity supply remained constrained, the Public Enterprise Minister Malusi Gigaba said on Saturday.

“We need to worry about how we are going to go through this winter,” Gigaba said.

“We need to change our behaviour... instead of using heaters people should rather use blankets.”

Bulala: A True Story Of South Africa

BULALA Tagati!*
A True Story of South Africa
by Cuan Elgin

One cannot claim to know the history of South Africa without having read Bulala

Also read the following extract from Bulala:

Was Nelson Mandela jailed for his "political beliefs?"

“This book is in stark contrast to those that have gone before it. For the first time South Africa’s history is depicted as it really was—shorn of politically correct evaluations and comment. With real people, incidents and events it tells the real and brutal story of the taming of a harsh, yet beautiful land. The blood and the battles, the dust and the sounds and smells all paint a most vivid picture. Anyone who reads this book cannot fail to understand more of the real dynamics of Africa: its cruelty, harshness, and unforgiving nature is stripped bare in Bulala . . . Read it and think again.” — David Taylor, New Zealand

[* "BULALA abaTagati" means in Zulu, "Kill the Wizards!" These were the words Zulu king Dingane used in 1838, when ordering his bodyguards to execute the Boer emmissaries, shortly after their mutual signing of a land treaty.]

"If you haven't yet read this book, then you are missing out on an epic of not only great sensitivity, but also of accounts of many betrayals so ghastly as to set your teeth on edge! 

This should be read by not only ALL South Africans of ALL colour, but also by people of other Nations who are not aware of our history. Cuan Elgin has a gift of attention to detail which is quite remarkable in a man so young and his ability to feel the heart of a woman is truly remarkable. 

His great faith in God is very evident as he embroiders this narrative richly with not only his own faith, but also that of the forefathers of this Nation who dared to trust their God even in the face of such desperate circumstances. 

If only one of his intentions in writing this history of our Nation, is to remind us of the kind of mettle and courage and bravery of the men and women who opened up our land with their own blood and tears, then he has succeeded!" - An endorsement by Lolah Peel

392 pages (including 3 maps), paperback.

The gripping tale of the beginnings of a small, brave, Christian nation born of both extremes of the emotional spectrum: conflict, turmoil, and tragedy as well as love, dedication, and adventure—this exciting historical account of the history of South Africa (from earliest times to the end of the 2nd Anglo-Boer War at the dawn of the 20th Century) is woven as a rich tapestry into the form of a novel.

Power outages are coming and the SA Rand will plummet

South Africa CANNOT survive 7 days without electricity. The South African currency has weakened 8 percent this year, the most out of 25 emerging-market currencies monitored by Bloomberg.

The history of Africa has consistently shown a particular trend:
  • Revolutionary take-over by a terrorist criminal regime;
  • Corruption, fraud, self-enrichment, while empoverishing the masses;
  • Infrastructure maintenance neglected;
  • Currency collapse as a consequence
  • Anarchy -> revolution -> civil war -> mass killings
Ask yourself how far are we down this path already.....?

When electricity supply collapses:
  • Water supply will collapse;
  • Fuel supply will collapses;
  • Food production, supply and distribution will collapse;
  • Hospitals and health services generally will collapse.
Everything would come to a standstill and South Africa would regress back to a time before WW2.

Are you ready yet?

Eskom wins again?

If the smelters close down people would lose their jobs and Richards Bay municipality would receive a smaller income, but South Africa would have more power, which would mean more time to build power stations

Fin24’s sister publication Sake24 on Friday won a long legal battle in which the Court of Appeal ruled that BHP Billiton must make public the prices it pays Eskom for electricity.

Eskom is making massive losses because of the low prices that BHP Billiton is paying.

The country would hence not have had an electricity crisis if Eskom had not supplied power to BHP Billiton's two aluminium smelters, Hillside in Richards Bay and Mozal in Maputo.

According to Sake24’s information, these two contracts are entirely responsible for the R9.5bn loss Eskom suffered in the year to end-March 2009, which it blamed on “derivatives”, an accounting term for prices that are calculated on the basis of external factors.

The two BHP Billiton smelters alone use 5.68% of Eskom's power generation capabilities, and all indications show they may receiving the power at lower than cost price from Eskom.

Hillside, the bigger of the two smelters, uses 1 200MW, which makes it the third biggest electricity user in the country. This usage is only surpassed by the cities of Cape Town and Durban, which each uses 1 300MW.

Hitachi (partly owned by the ANC) boilers fail at the still-under-construction Medupi power plant

I loved the way news about the failure of the Hitachi boilers at the still-under-construction Medupi power plant was handled. While conceding that Hitachi, partly owned now directly by the African National Congress (ANC) through its investment arm, Chancellor House, and through which it got the multibillion-rand boiler contract in the first place, had made a mess of the boilers Eskom required, the spin was that there were many other problems at the plant as well.

Yes, maybe, but none of them were brought to us courtesy of the ANC’s party-funding machine. I trust Eskom has the courage to require significant penalties from Hitachi for the mess. Medupi was supposed to come onstream this year. I doubt it will, in any meaningful way, because the boiler problem is just too serious. Remember, too, that Hitachi/ANC is also supplying boilers to Kusile, the coal-fired station that is set to follow Medupi.

Between them, the two power stations will add 10% to SA’s generating capacity. But until Hitachi gets its act together and produces a boiler that won’t explode as the steam inside it builds to unthinkable pressure levels, they’ll produce nothing.

Doornpoort Pretoria's new Mining town?

Updated 06 March 2013


Gemsbok Platinum (Pty) Ltd. has lodged an application for platinum prospecting rights on the remainder of the Farm Doornpoort 295JR, situated approximately 10 km north of Pretoria on the outskirts the suburb Doornpoort.

To view the area on Gloogle Maps click HERE 

An environmental consultancy has confirmed that Gemsbok Platinum (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Sable Platinum Holdings has lodged an application for prospecting rights with the Department of Minerals and Energy on this land that is in extent of 2779,64 hectares. (Source) 

The proposed prospecting would be conducted over the next 5 years.

Awarding of prospecting rights would lead to mining permits. Mining activities can affect the area for up to 30 years.

This development would most probably impact negatively upon ALL property prices in the enitre Doornpoort, Sinoville, Montane, Magalieskruin area. In fact it would impact on the entire region, including the Moot area, Derdepoort, Kameeldrift and surrounds. 

The quiet neighbourhood north of the Magalies berg would be lost forever - squatters, violent mining strikes, hostels and compounds, dust, noise, traffic, trucks and every other curse would follow.
