It should be a black square if you want to be politically correct. Otherwise it's just another White privilege cartoon.

South Africa: Zuma and public office bearers’ salary hikes approved

South African president Jacob Showerhead Zuma will now earn R2 753 689 per year.

Not too shabby for a goat herder with 5 years of schooling.

A nice increase for someone who has trashed the country and headed up a government who has managed to loot R700 BILLION through corruption over 20 years in power. 

Ah, R700 billion. It sounds so clinical - so innocuous when you put it like that - R700 billion. Is that all, I hear you say? What's the big deal???

So let's break it down a little. That's an average of R35 BILLION per year looted from the tax payer - which is just under R3 billion per month - or R 100 000 000 per day!

Yes sirree - R 100 million per day on average is what's lost to corruption in South Africa. Now all of a sudden that R700 billion starts looking more than innocuous, eh? 

And therefore Mr Zuma deserves a raise. After all, a-looting and a-pillaging is hard work while trying to keep a straight face and telling his people how much he cares about their poor, pathetic, crime-riddled lives, while he throws the champagne down his pie-hole.

Then after lying all day, he still has to go home and service his 5 wives and change the nappies of his 22 children, all the while trying to explain why he shouldn't repay the money for the mansion the tax-payers built him. All R250 million of it.

Just think about that. Every 3 days South Africa could build a Nkandla mansion like Jacob Zuma has - just on the money stolen from their wallets by the ANC cadres. Each month they could build 10 Nkandla mansions and have money to spare for the little extras, like swimming pools - in case of a fire.

Who says Communists are stupid? Here they are running South Africa when we thought it could never happen. We were a proud, courageous, righteous people - unlike the commies - and look where that got us?  And now, not only are the commies running South Africa while we watch them, but they're doing a grand job of destroying the joint, and all the while their dumb voters celebrate the destruction as something good. 

Viva comrades! 

When all the while it was we Whites who were the stupid ones. Our boys and men died on the border protecting the country against this filth and our very own National Party government sold us out to the Communists without a whimper, telling us it was the right thing to do.

Yeah, it sure was right. Just look at the grand life the commies now lead, while everyone watches them in disbelief. They don't care if they know that we know what they're doing.

So then, have you ever wondered why we worried back then what the world thought of us? 

Yeah, me too.

Point made....

Joke of the day.....

'Journalist' communist Max du Preez has joined South Africa's News24 after he was slapped on the wrist by his former employers for writing a negative article about President Zoooma.

Here's the joke - from News24:
"We are thrilled to be able to offer a 'home' to Max. His reputation for truth, his passion for press freedom and his calibre of journalism make him one of the best, and exactly the kind of unapologetic opinion we want on News24," he said in a statement.

Hahaha. Reputation for truth?? Calibre of journalism??? Best???? Unapologetic opinion???

Hahahahahaaaaa. Bwahahahahahaaa.....

Old Maxie is a die-hard communist, who is an ANC mouthpiece. He is owned lock, stock and barrel by the South African Communist Party to write propaganda.

News24 is scraping the barrel. Now you know what they stand for - nothing. Absolutely nothing apart from sucking up to the ruling party. They are nothing but sycophants. 

Spare me.

Armed robbers leave a trail of blood through South African shopping mall

There was a wild shoot-out at the Bedford Centre shopping mall, east of Johannesburg on Thursday.

Seven people were shot and injured including two alleged robbers in the shoot-out between security guards and a group of armed men.

The security guards were collecting cash inside the centre when they were confronted by a group of armed men. Customers were caught in the crossfire.

This is South Africa today - a virtual war zone - where the criminals are king and the citizens unarmed. Where criminals can't read or write, but can operate an AK-47.

Welcome to South Africa under Black criminal rule.

Seven people, including two alleged robbers, were injured in a shootout at a shopping centre in Bedfordview, east of Johannesburg, on Thursday, Gauteng police said.

"Three customers, two security guards and two suspects were injured during the shooting. All have been taken to hospital," said spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Katlego Mogale.

Security guards were collecting cash inside the centre when they were confronted by a group of armed men, she said.

"A shooting ensued between them, with some customers caught in the crossfire. An undisclosed amount of money was taken by some of the suspects."

One person had been shot in the head, arm and abdomen while another was shot in the arm, said paramedics spokesperson Danielle Dooley.

One suspect was shot in the leg and tried to run away but was found in the basement area, said Dooley.

Another suspect had been shot in the chest and was found near the escalators.

An elderly woman was found hiding between clothing rails at a store. She had a heart condition and was experiencing chest pain. She was treated on scene and transported to hospital by for further medical treatment.

Police have warned shoppers to stay away from the shopping centre. 


USA: Detainee swapped for Bergdahl suspected of militant activities

In May last year, Obama exchanged 5 high ranking Taliban Islamic terrorists leaders held at Gitmo for army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

The reason given for the 'hasty' prisoner swap - without first giving Congress the mandatory 30-day notice period - was that Bergdahl's health was deteriorating. As we know from experience, these types of rogue actions are taken when Obama needs a "scandal" to cover up another scandal. At around the time the Bergdahl prisoner swap was announced, Obama was drowning in the VA hospital scandal, so voilà, the Bergdahl announcement was made.

It's like throwing a bone to the toothless media.

Everyone subsequently learnt that not only did Obama sanction the release of 5 murdering radical Islamic terrorists for an army deserter, but that he paid Qatar - the facilitator - $5 BILLION for the swap. In your eye American tax-payers!

The military then said they would launch an investigation into Bergdahl's actions to see if he really was a deserter. The Pentagon has been sitting on that report for months now, but they still haven't released it.

Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer told Fox News a few days ago that Bergdahl would be charged with desertion shortly. However, the Pentagon is still burying the report - probably under strict instructions from the man who said he'd have the most transparent administration in US history - Barack Hussein Obama.

King Hussein still needs to squash the findings for a while. He'll keep that card up his sleeve until his next scandal needs to be removed from the front pages of the wimpy, slobbering newspapers......

The precise terms of the release of the 5 Taliban 'leaders' to Qatar - and the Qataris promise to monitor their activities - has never been made public. All five are believed to still be in Qatar (or Gutter for short).

However, today we read that one of the 5 POS has attempted to return to militant activity from his current location in Qatar by making contact with suspected Taliban associates in Afghanistan.

No shite Sherlock!

When you release unrepentant militant terrorists what do you expect them to do when they're released? Go run a cafe?? Sweep streets?? No, if you're sane you'd expect them to go do what they did before they went to prison. Terrorism. 

In contrast, if you're a stupid, naive, infantile Progressive/Liberal you expect them to become model citizens.

So that's why, instead of treating this scum as if they're humans, you're supposed to wipe them out - as they would do to you in a heart beat. You don't pussyfoot around with them and treat them with respect. You kaboom them. And you CERTAINLY don't release them back to the wilds.

It's like catching rats running rampant in your roof and releasing them outside - you know, because you're a good Liberal person. Next week the rats are back and they've brought friends. Lots and lots of friends. That's why you take Ratex and you kill them. Period.

Same with your militant enemies.

Our governments these days have been deballed and PC'd into stupidity. What was once done to protect ones country without question or hesitation is now thought to be offensive and inhumane these days. 

And that, dear boys and girls, is why there is no peace on Earth and our countries are unsafe. And that's why you don't allow any Progressive/Liberal scum to run your country.

The end.

The U.S. military and intelligence community now suspect that one of the five Taliban detainees released from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in May of last year has attempted to return to militant activity from his current location in Qatar by making contact with suspected Taliban associates in Afghanistan, multiple officials tell CNN.

The development has led to an ongoing debate inside the administration about whether there is a new threat from this man, and potentially the other four.

This is the first known suggestion that any of the detainees involved in the exchange may be trying to engage again in militant activity. It comes at a politically sensitive time as the administration has quickened the pace of prisoner release in an effort to encourage the closure of the Guantanamo, and the Army must decide in the coming weeks whether and how to punish Bergdahl for leaving his post.

Hump day.....


USA: American Sniper film 'behind rise in anti-Muslim threats'

I haven't watched a movie at the cinemas for years and years, because I refuse to depart with my hard-earned money by supporting the libtards of Hollywood.

But, I made an exception this month - after 8 years of boycotting Hollyweird I watched American Sniper.

Why? Because the Liberals in America are going apeshite about the movie, that's why. They've acted like tantrum-throwing 2 year-olds and what better way to piss them off further than to support the movie they hate to their bone marrow??

I also went because it was directed by Clint Eastwood and I have a lot of time for old Clint. After all, he did depict Obama as an empty chair..... Clint is no libtard.

The movie hardly touches on all that Chris Kyle achieved. He was a Navy SEAL and is the most lethal sniper in US military history, having been credited with 160 confirmed kills. And when he finally retired he went on to spend time helping his fellow war veterans recover from their PTSD, and one of those veterans he helped went on to kill Chris Kyle in February 2013 while at the shooting range. He survived 4 tours of duty in Iraq, even with a reward on his head by the rag-heads, and went home to be killed by one of his own. How ironic and how sad. Kyle was 38 when he died.

So, why do the libtards carry on like squealing pigs when they speak about the movie? Because the movie, according to them, glorifies a killer. Yes, that's correct, these fools call a man who protected his own soldiers a killer, just because he was tasked with shooting enemies in the battle zone. He should be hailed a hero.

Even the BBC shows their libtard mentality, calling those killed by Kyle not terrorists, but his victims. Bunch of wankers.

Fools. Dumb liberal fools. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

See, this film is making huge amounts of money for old Clint and the producers, and poor Oprah's "Selma" is way, way behind. American Sniper has made over $300 million in America so far. It seems that the American people are HUNGRY for some real men in the movies after being subjected to feminised male roles for far too long. Yes sirree bob - America is hungry to see men who act like men. Men who love their country, their fellow Americans, and who aren't afraid to go die for their country. Men with muscles who act like a man - a man who calls his enemies 'savages'. No wonder he's a hero of American patriots.

The Liberal/Progressives idea of a real man is this - Pajama Boy:

Or this:

And not this:

And then on cue, here come the eternal victims, the Muslims, saying there's been an increase in threats against them in the USA. Well then LEAVE!! Take your towels and head rags, your tented women, your brats and goats and move back to your flea-infested sandboxes where you can go pray to your prophet 2000 times a day and stone your women uninterrupted. No one is forcing you to live in the land of the infidel. 

So, do yourself a favour and take the time to piss Liberals and Muslims off. Go see American Sniper. It's well worth the money.

And at the end of the movie, as his coffin is driven past adoring fans on the side-walks and on the bridges overhead, ask yourself why the pansy in the White House , the effeminate Obama didn't even acknowledge this man's death, nor did he lower the flags around the nation. Yet he runs to Saudi Arabia to kiss Saudi Arabian ass when their human-rights abusing king dies.

No wonder America is hungry for a real man.

The release of the film American Sniper has led to an increase in threats against Muslims in the US, according to an Arab-American civil rights group.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) has written to director Clint Eastwood and star Bradley Cooper.

Their film is based on US soldier Chris Kyle's service in Iraq from 2003-09.

The ADC said a "majority of the violent threats we have seen over the past few days are result of how Arab and Muslims are depicted in American Sniper".

The organisation, which describes itself as the largest Arab civil rights organisation in the US, said it had collected "hundreds of violent messages targeting Arab and Muslim Americans from movie-goers", mainly from Facebook and Twitter.

The letter asked Eastwood and Cooper to speak out against such messages "in an effort to reduce the hateful rhetoric".

"Your visibility, influence, and connection to the film would be a tremendous force in drawing attention to and lessening the serious dangers facing the respective communities," ADC president Samer Khalaf wrote.

Jack Horner, a spokesman for the Warner Bros film studio, which released the film, told the Reuters news agency that the company "denounces any violent, anti-Muslim rhetoric, including that which has been attributed to viewers" of the film.

He added: "Hate and bigotry have no place in the important dialogue that this picture has generated about the veteran experience."

Spokespeople for Eastwood and Cooper had no immediate response to requests for comment, Reuters news agency reported.

American Sniper has been a major hit in North America, exceeding box office predictions by taking $90m (£59m) in its opening weekend - a record for a January release. It also has six Oscar nominations.

Film controversy
But it has caused controversy. Some have hailed its portrayal of Kyle as a war hero, but others have criticised it for glorifying violence and for Kyle's attitude towards his victims.

Kyle, a Navy Seal, served four tours of duty in Iraq and killed more than 160 people, making him the most deadly sniper in American history.

The film is based on his book, also titled American Sniper, in which he claimed to have no regrets and referred to those he killed as "savages".

Kyle was killed in February 2013 on a firing range in his home state of Texas.

Obama forced to defend Saudi Arabia cosiness after India tolerance speech

So, Obama cut short his trip to India so he could go bow down to the new Saudi Arabia pig king.

You know, Saudi Arabia, that bastion of human rights ...... abuses, top funder of world Islamic terrorism and builders of Muslim madras's and mosques around the world.

Yeah, Obama and his entourage made up of the likes of John Kerry, John McCain, Condoleezza Rice, CIA director John Brennan and a few other groupies - all there to swoon in front of the king of oil - and the holder of America's testicles.

Anything to keep the price of oil down and Russia in turmoil.

Just hours after lecturing India on religious tolerance and women’s rights, Obama was holding hands with the leader of a country which allows only one religion to be practised, and where women are not to be seen or heard (preferably beaten, hidden in tents, or beheaded in public).

How's that for chutzpah?

I'm not sure why any leader of any country would feel the need to go visit another country and then lecture them about anything. I mean, you really have to be a psychopathic, delusional narcissist to think that what you think and say is of any interest to the host country.  

Usually it's just plain insulting. Rather don't go visit then, or if you do, you go, respect their way of life, do business with them and leave. As Putin does. 

At the end of the day, who the heck CARES what the phony Marxist and eternal Black victim Obama thinks? Certainly not me.

Maybe now people will understand why you don't take anything at face value. Obama will rant on about India, but praise one of the worst human rights abusers, Saudi Arabia. He will support the "rebels" against evil Assad, yet embrace the neo-Nazi freakoids running Kiev in Ukraine and who are bombing their own people in the East.

Such is the selective double-standard amnesia of these power-hungry psychopaths.

It seems some things are tolerated when it suits. At other times things are condemned when they don't suit.

Obama the smooth-talking shyster. A con-man through and through.

US president cuts short visit to pay respects to King Salman hours after lecturing India on tolerance and women’s rights

Barack Obama has been forced to defend his unwillingness to challenge Saudi Arabia’s autocratic rulers as he led a US delegation to shore up relations with its new king, just hours after lecturing India on religious tolerance and women’s rights.

In a stark display of US foreign policy compromises, the US president cut short his India visit on Tuesday to fly in many of Washington’s top power brokers to pay their respects to the Saudi royal. He conceded the kingdom’s own human rights record would not be on the agenda during security talks.

“Sometimes we need to balance our need to speak to them about human rights issues with immediate concerns we have in terms of counter-terrorism or dealing with regional stability,” Obama told CNN.

Earlier, he risked ruffling feathers in Delhi with a speech that challenged its leaders to do more to protect religious minorities and encourage women in Indian society, prompting some local commentators to question US double standards.

In contrast, White House officials speaking on Air Force One between Delhi and Riyadh made clear they were pleased that the new Saudi King Salman was planning a smooth transition of power after the death of his half brother King Abdullah.

“What they’ve made clear again is that they’re going to emphasise continuity in terms of Saudi interests and the Saudi relationship with the United States,” deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters. “So we do believe that Saudi policy will remain quite similar to how it’s been under King Abdullah.”

Obama and top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi were joined in Riyadh by a separate US flight from Germany led by secretary of state John Kerry, which contained a who’s who of US leaders including CIA director John Brennan, Republican hawk John McCain and General Lloyd Austin, head of US Central Command forces in the region.

To emphasise the permanence of Washington’s links to the House of Saud, Obama’s delegation also pointedly included key officials from past administrations such as former secretaries of state James Baker and Condoleezza Rice, and former national security advisers Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger.

The US is anxious to maintain the Saudi-driven oil price reductions that have buoyed the US economy but weakened strategic foes such as Russia, as well as cooperation against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

The two delegations are also expected to speak extensively about the recent overthrow of Yemen’s government, which leaves Saudi Arabia a rare example of stability in an increasingly volatile region.

Speaking in advance of the four-hour meeting in Riyadh, Obama acknowledged he would not be raising US concerns about Saudi Arabia’s treatment of blogger Raif Badawi, who was convicted of insulting Islam and sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes.

“On this visit, obviously a lot of this is just paying respects to King Abdullah, who in his own fashion presented some modest reform efforts within the kingdom,” he said.

Reporters were able to witness the reception of the US delegation, including most of Obama’s top White House advisers, at the Erga palace in Riyadh, but no public statements were made before they disappeared behind closed doors for a formal dinner.

“Places don’t change overnight, but I think with Saudi Arabia, what we’ve said we support is a reform process that does provide for greater respect for those types of universal values,” added Rhodes in a briefing ahead of the meeting. “But clearly, much more work needs to be done to realise the types of values that the president was talking about in India. And that’ll be a consistent part of our dialogue with all countries around the world.”

Earlier in the day in Delhi, Obama gave a parting speech to students that contrasted with the at-times saccharin feel of a three-day state visit that had been designed to highlight the closeness of the two countries.

Though careful to acknowledge inequality in the US, the president devoted a substantial part of his speech to a lecture on the importance of empowering women in society and addressed a recent spate of sexual attacks in the emerging south Asian power.

“We know from experience that nations are more successful when their women are successful,” said Obama. “These are facts. So if nations really want to succeed in today’s global economy, they can’t simply ignore the talents of half of their people.”

Obama concluded by quoting Gandhi on India’s traditions of tolerance: “He said, ‘for me, the different religions are beautiful flowers from the same garden, or they are branches of the same majestic tree’. Branches of the same majestic tree.”



Of all the places to indicate "convicts", they put it near where I live.

They may be onto something.....

Pope Francis To Followers: “Koran And Holy Bible Are The Same”

Well, it's no secret that the Progressive rubbish has infiltrated the Catholic Church.

Nothing shows it more clearly than the Church picking an uneducated embarrassment as Pope in 2013.

Francis has done everything in his power to hasten the destruction of the CC by taking all that the Church stands for and re-writing the tenets according to his warped ideology.

Do you want to know just how uneducated in Catholic catechism this Pope is? Just the other day when he visited the Philippines a little girl asked him why God permits terrible things like child prostitution to happen.  Good old Francis, being dumb and apparently unembarrassed about his shortcomings, said, “She is the only one who has put forward a question for which there is no answer….”

So, here is the head of the Catholic Church - the POPE - and he couldn't even come up with an answer to a question most kids ask in kindergarten, and which most Catholic children get taught at catechism. You'd think he'd try a bit harder to be dumb.

When Francis isn't imploring Europe to allow the hordes of unwashed African savages into the region to enrich it, he can be found kissing the feet of Muslims. He has met with and will be meeting countless Muslim leaders so that they can "talk about further steps that can be taken to spread understanding and awareness of the Islamic religion."

Notice that this libtard Pope hasn't said much about the slaughtering by ISIS of the Yazidis and Christians in Iraq and Syria? The women being raped, the children being gutted, the men being beheaded and crucified. Instead, he's worried about spreading understanding and awareness of the exact savage murderers who are killing CHRISTIANS in the name of their prophet - and worrying about the hurt feelings of Muslims following the Paris murders by Muslims a few weeks back. Yes, for that he has all the time. For the murdered Christians a few thousand miles from his gold-lined toilet, not so much.

Also notice how he asks for tolerance from others towards Islam, yet not once does he ask why there isn't one single Christian Church in some Muslim countries, like Saudi Arabia for example. The reason he doesn't ask is because he knows the answer, so he acts blind dumb and deaf instead - which he's perfected.

Can anything be more twisted than this?

Apparently yes. 

Francis has also decided that out goes the contraceptive issue, and in comes the homosexual cause and wealth redistribution with the eternal 'Capitalism bad' meme. And yet this Pope - who is so concerned about the plight of the poor - hasn't once offered to sell of some of the gold, paintings and treasures kept in the vaults in the basement of palace he sleeps in, so that he can save the poor from hunger. 

Beam me up Scotty.

No wonder the radical Left love him. He's their new hero, and when the atheist Left call you their hero then you must know you're a dumber than a bag of hammers.

And now here we have our illustrious Pope going off the deep end once again. It seems that nothing is too low for the dolt: 
On Monday the Bishop Of Rome addressed Catholic followers regarding the dire importance of exhibiting religious tolerance. During his hour-long speech, a smiling Pope Francis was quoted telling the Vatican’s guests that the Koran, and the spiritual teachings contained therein, are just as valid as the Holy Bible.
If that is true dear Pope Francis, that the Koran is just as valid as the Holy Bible, then you go get in your Pope-mobile and go visit Iraq and Syria where ISIS are living as their holy book tells them to. And then let's see how long you survive with your head on. I give it 5 seconds. 10 tops.

You absolutely foolish POS.

You are an embarrassment, a libtard piece of rubbish. You are too stupid to realise that you're being used to ruin Christianity exactly because you are a mental midget. 

And no, the answer is not to leave the Catholic Church if you are Catholic, because one swallow does not a Summer make. The answer is get this piece of scum out of the Vatican ASAP - using any means.

Now it's up to a higher power to make our wishes come true.

The Pope and his Palestinian scarf

On Monday the Bishop Of Rome addressed Catholic followers regarding the dire importance of exhibiting religious tolerance. During his hour-long speech, a smiling Pope Francis was quoted telling the Vatican’s guests that the Koran, and the spiritual teachings contained therein, are just as valid as the Holy Bible.

“Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each others beliefs, for we are all children of God regardless of the name we choose to address him by. We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now. No longer shall we slaughter our neighbors over differences in reference to their God.”

The pontiff drew harsh criticisms in December after photos of the 78-year-old Catholic leader was released depicting Pope Francis kissing a Koran. The Muslim Holy Book was given to Francis during a meeting with Muslim leaders after a lengthy Muslim prayer held at the Vatican.

St. John Paul II has courted several controversies since being elected as Pope Benedicto XVI’s replacement in 2013. Francis has gone on record to say that homosexuals are not to be judged, Proselytism is nonsense and has endorsed the usage of contraceptive by Catholics.

The Vatican will meet again with Muslim leaders in late February where they plan to talk about further steps that can be taken to spread understanding and awareness of the Islamic religion.


New York: Snowmageddon was just a blizzard

On Monday, New York Governor Cuomo and New York Comrade Mayor Billy-bob de Blasio whipped up the fear about an approaching snow storm set to hit that evening and decimate the north east.

New York and surrounds was going to face the mother of all snowstorms. The media quickly dubbed it "Snowmageddon" and the public were treated to news report after news report about the impending doom and gloom.

Around 6,000 flights were cancelled, with CNN proclaiming that a "historic" storm was set to hit the north east of America. 

Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, issued a state of emergency even before the 'super-storm' hit, and warned everyone to stay home. Shops were emptied and people bunkered down.

And then the super-storm hit. All 7 snowy inches of it. In other words, just your usual snowstorm experienced in the region.

The meteorologists who made the snowmageddon predictions have since done their mea culpa, saying that they were very sorry they got the snowstorm thing wrong.

Yeah, well, no worries mate! New York businesses lost almost a billion dollars in revenue due to all the closures and scaremongering by the predicting folks. No biggie.

So, what is the point of this blog post you ask? Well, the point is this. If these meterologists can get a simple snowstorm so wrong in a 24 hour period, how can they predict what is going to happen to the planet over the next 100 years due to "global warming"? 

And how can you trust them with any past or future "climate modelling" after this?

As politicians rushed to out-serious each other, New Yorkers were whipped into a fear frenzy.

On Monday, as Governor Cuomo, Governor Christie, and Mayor de Blasio rushed to out-serious each other, New Yorkers were whipped into a fear frenzy. Supermarket shelves were stripped bare, photos of Whole Foods depleted of kale circulated, and people stocked up for what would likely be days (maybe weeks!) indoors.

Even as we were doing it, we acknowledged it didn’t make much sense. After all, we’re in New York City. Bodegas never close. Delivery guys on bicycles have been a constant through all previous winter storms. All New Yorkers have their stories. That time we ordered Chinese Food during the snowstorm of 1994. Swimming on Brighton Beach during Hurricane Gloria. Buying Poptarts at the corner bodega during Sandy. Driving from Manhattan to Brooklyn and back again during the blackout of 2003. Yes, those are all mine.

As we waited for the storm deemed “historic,” the only real history was made when the subway shut down for the first time ever in preparation for snow. The real insult came when it was reported later that the trains were indeed still running, empty, as trains needed to keep moving to clear the tracks. Citibike was shut down. Cars were banned from the roads and anyone who didn’t take heed risked being fined.

These are all symptoms of our infantilizing “do something!” culture. Everyone understands the pressure politicians feel to be seen as proactive. But this time they went way too far in the name of protecting us. It’s one thing to warn drivers that conditions are dangerous and that they go out at their own risk. It’s another to shut down all roads in the city that allegedly never sleeps.

South Africa: Zuma: Electricity infrastructure cannot serve expanded citizenry

So Zuma goes to Davos to go rub shoulders with the world's elite.

The same world elite which flies in their fancy private planes - all 120 of them - to go tell us how global warming is the biggest threat to mankind, while gobbling down the caviar and tossing back the Moët & Chandon champagne. 

Yeah, THOSE elites.

So, Zuma gets up and tells these elites at the "World Economic Forum" that South Africa's electricity capacity was never designed to serve 11 million households.

Gee, thanks for stating the bleeding obvious, you bloody genius. Of course it wasn't built for that many households as there weren't that many households 21 years ago! You know, 21 years ago when you and the useless ANC took the country over and it was left with over R20 billion in the kitty to maintain and build on the existing electricity infrastructure? Yeah, 21 years ago when the country was producing so much cheap electricity that most of the surrounding countries benefited? Remember?? 

Yeah, I guess old Zuma forgot to mention those little-known facts. In fact, old Zuma forgot to tell a whole lot of truths, instead preferring to lie and say it's due to the economy growing and Apartheid. 

Really? The economy is growing, is it? You flipping liar. When your unemployment figures are north of 45% then you don't have a growing anything. You have a time bomb waiting to happen. 

He then went on to say that South Africa was committed to grow the economy 5% by 2019. Hey Zuma, is this before or after you add 5 million jobs by 2014? You know, those jobs that never materialised and where you actually shed jobs......

One can only wish someone would stand up and ask Zuma to explain what exactly he means by 5% growth. Maybe, if they were lucky, he would come up with this type of entertaining answer:

Or, if you're real lucky, with this:

However, seeing as Zuma was in front of enough fawning champagne quaffing global warming nutjobs, he just couldn't resist throwing a bone to them with his goobly-gook about "renewable energy". Just those 2 words uttered by a Black third-world dictator is usually enough to get the elitists to fling open their wallets and give generously. Last time he managed to con R82-billion out from private investors, with another R51-billion in the pipeline. Thanks guys!

The fools and their money are quickly departed. Just tap your red Dorothy shoes named "renewable energy" and a gold-bricked road appears quicker than flies to shite.

What's pretty funny is that here is Zuma carrying on about R82-billion conned out of private renewable energy investors, and later in his lies speech he heralds the R60.5-billion of potential investment projects for the economy in 2013-2014. When the renewable sector can scare up R82 billion and normal business only R60 billion, then something smells rotten in the state of Zuma-land.

This clearly makes sense to people of a higher intelligence than myself.

In any case, South Africa under those marvellous economists named the ANC is open for business, so hurry up and go invest! What could possibly go wrong?

Zuma said at the World Economic Forum in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland on Wednesday, that South Africa was currently considering options to increase the available electricity generation capacity and to manage the demand over the next six months in order to reduce the risk of rolling blackouts.

“Our electricity infrastructure for example, was never designed to serve an expanded citizenry,” he said in a statement prepared for delivery. 

“This extension of electricity to more households that had been excluded in the past, coupled with a growing economy, have sharply put pressure on the infrastructure, which needs improved maintenance and expansion.”

Zuma said South Africa was currently considering options to increase the available electricity generation capacity and to manage the demand over the next six months in order to reduce the risk of rolling blackouts.

On December 5, Eskom implemented stage three blackouts, but on December 8 Eskom chief executive Tshediso Matona denied that Eskom was in crisis. 

The power utility implemented stage one of load shedding on January 9, due to high electricity demand and the unavailability of some of its generating units. Stage one allows for up to 1 000MW of the national load to be shed, stage two for up to 2 000MW, and stage three for up to 4 000MW. 

On Thursday, Matona said government shared responsibility with Eskom for the power problems gripping the country and said the country’s power supply would remain severely constrained in the coming months while Eskom dealt with its maintenance backlog.

South Africa: Farm attack - man who shot warning shot arrested

Farm attacks have risen almost 300% over the last 3 years.

As of 12 January, 7 farmers have been murdered in South Africa in 2015 so far. That tally may be more, seeing as that number was from 2 weeks ago:
“This is more than one farm murder every two days. If this trend is any indication of the rate of farm murders in 2015, it means that there will be more than 200 farm murders,” AfriForum deputy CEO Ernst Roets said in a statement.
Imagine if one farmer was being murdered every 2 days in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, America, England, Germany etc......... imagine the outcry.

But, this is only South Africa and who cares about the White farmers, huh? After all, this is their payback for being evil and supporting Apartheid against the poor innocent noble Black people. 

Yeah, these murders are being committed by poor innocent Blacks - my foot. Let's have a look at some of the recent attacks:
The bodies of the couple, aged 70 and 72, were dumped near the farm at Waaikraal, Captain Harry Nagel said.
“The couple had been shot and killed during a robbery in which a television set, firearms and vehicle were taken.”
And then there's this one:
The body of a 68-year-old woman was found inside a burnt house at Erfbloem farm near Theunissen.
And then there's the gratuitous torture some victims experience - and if they're lucky, as in this case - they survive:
A couple, both in their 70s, were assaulted and burnt with a steam iron by three armed men at their farm in De Wildt near Brits.
“Three men covered in balaclavas came onto the farm, disarmed [Hannes], tied him and his wife up, started assaulting them and burnt them with a steam iron on most of their body parts,” said Ngubane. 
Yeah, how noble of these savage Blacks to burn people in their 70s with steam irons over most of their bodies. Yeah, you have to be real MEN to do that, the frigging cowards. Note that they always hunt in packs, the barbarian IQ67's that they are. And they target the elderly these days as it's more fun watching old people suffer and die.

If you believe these farm attacks are just random Black savage criminal acts in South Africa, then boy do I have a bright, shiny new red bridge to sell you! Promise. 

No, this is genocide and the force removal of White people from their land. In most cases these savages take next to nothing during these attacks, but will spend hours torturing the land owners instead.

This is ANC sanctioned genocide and a protracted terror campaign. Nothing more. Nothing less. They have time to do this as slowly as they want as they'll rule until Jesus comes again - as President Zuma has said. And they're stepping the attacks up as the country tumbles increasingly into chaos. It goes hand in hand with Zuma and his "land redistribution" rhetoric he began using at the beginning of this year. This year, he said, is the year for land expropriation.

And then on the other side of the same coin you have the EFF (Economic Freedumb Fighters) encouraging their voters to occupy vacant land. 

So between the ANC and the ANC-mini-me EFF, all bets are covered and Whites will eventually be forcefully removed off their land - either through violence, murder or terror. Take your pick, but go they will. 

Now, if they did this cleansing campaign overnight then the international community MAY - just may - stand up and take notice and decide that what the ANC is doing isn't exactly right. If you're lucky (see Mugarbage in Zimboonwe). But, if the ANC does this slowly over time, then hardly anyone will notice what's going on - just like frogs in cold water and the heat turned up slowly don't notice they're being boiled alive.  So too are our intrepid "journalists" and Libtards around the world. They're happily swimming in the nice warm water.

In order for the ANC to make sure that their terror campaign keeps going uninterrupted, they count on farmers being unarmed, defenceless or intimidated into not acting. So it comes as no surprise then that during a recent farm attack, when a neighbour ran to the aid of the victims and fired a WARNING shot into the air to scare the attackers, the good Samaritan ends up being arrested and charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition by the police. 

Bugger that he probably stopped the murders of at least 5 people, including a one month-old baby. Bugger that he was prepared to risk his life to save his neighbours. Bugger that he managed to scare the barbarian savages off and the stolen good recovered. Bugger anything good that came out of his selfless deed.

No. The bigger crime than the ARMED robbery - according to the useless idiot new rainbow nation police of South Africa - is that the person who shot off a warning shot didn't have a license.

How's that for IQ67 intelligence?

Yeah, South Africa is in a heap of trouble and it's not going to get better any time soon. All one can do as an expat South African is highlight what's going on in the old country and hope that somewhere, somehow the truth reaches the outside world and they see what's happening to the White people of South Africa.

Because, you can clearly NOT rely on the media to do its job. Not when it comes to the plight of the Whites in SA.

Nelspruit – A man who fired at armed men that were attacking his neighbors is now charged for the illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Mr. Deon Cronje and his wife Melissa lives on a smallholding on the Cairn-road and was attacked on Monday night. Melissa had just fed their month-old baby and relaxed on the porch when three men, one with a machete and the other with arms, attacked her and forced her inside the home.

The Cronjés suspected the men have gained access through the wire fence.

Deon was in the bathroom and at the point to get into the shower when he heard his wife scream.

“When I opened the door I saw the men tied my wife and nine year old daughter,” he said. The suspects pulled him naked from the bathroom and forced him into the living room with the rest of his family. He lost his arm many years ago in an accident and the suspects struggled to tie him. His five-year old boy was very scared and began to cry.

South Africa: Minister of de-fence....

Long career in front of him.....

Greece: From the frying pan into the fire

So, Greece just went full retard.

They think the answer to an economy imploding is........... Communism!

But, who can blame the Greeks for falling for a party promising them unicorn farts and flying fairies? If you're up to your eyeballs in debt, then someone telling you that they'll chase the mean banks away sounds like Utopia. 

Their saviour has just arrived to kiss all the ow-ow better.

So, who did the Greeks trust with their future? Just a smorgasbord political party made up of every radical Lefty ideology known to man:
Syriza is an acronym for ‘Coalition of the Radical Left’ and the party was formed as an umbrella group for 11 groups – merging Marxists, Socialists, Euro-communists and Greens. Mr Tsipras, 40, is known for his relaxed attitude; swapping limos for motorbikes to travel around Athens.
The leader Mr Tsipras is a radical communist. Need one say more about the future of Greece? 

Yes, lets.

Mr Tsipras has promised to increase social benefits and tell the ECB and IMF to take a hike if they want repayments of their loans. Basically, he and his infantile commie pals want debt forgiveness for money already spent on crapolla.  Music to the ears of the tax-adverse Greeks. Mr Tsipras, in the past, has also been enthusiastic about imposing a 75% wealth tax on the rich - which has worked exceptionally well for France (if ruining your economy is your aim).

So, who is Comrade Tsipras? Well, he's an ex-Communist youth leader, who in 1990 as a 17-year-old, led a school sit-in and told a TV interviewer: "We want the right to judge for ourselves whether to skip class."

He's also an admirer of the mass-murderer Che Guevara - but then, which communist isn't? Nothing better than to murder your opponents and instil fear in the rest of the population. Commies love nothing better than wiping out anyone who doesn't agree with them. 

The good Comrade has also promised to stop repaying the Greek debt:
"Unless the deals were fundamentally renegotiated, he said, Greece would stop paying its debts, which still amount to a staggering 175 percent of gross domestic product."
Syriza has also pledged to raise salaries and pensions, halt layoffs and freeze the privatisation of state assets. 

Great promises...... if you're a wealthy nation. Stupidity if you're stone-broke and telling your creditors to take a hike. I'm guessing not many financial institutions will be willing to bail out Greece.... again - and according to all accounts, Greece is flat-broke again and in need of more money earned by others.

So, let's summarise Greece's track-record:
1. Greece completely lied about their finances to join the EU  
2. They approved a massive bail-out taking billions from other countries in loans 
3. They may decide not to pay back the loans or live up to their part of the deal and; 
4. Those same countries that issued the first loans will more than likely not issue more loans. 

Any way you look at it, Greece is screwed. They should NEVER have taken the bailout in the first place. They should have left the EU when they first got into financial trouble. They would have had the advantage of devaluing their currency and attracting tourism and businesses to the country, thereby increasing their GDP and getting their economy going again. They could have been another Switzerland eventually. 

However, they chose not to and instead they took money from the ECB and the IMF and agreed to very stupid terms. 

They can't at this stage decide that they've had enough austerity and decide to default just because it hasn't been a pleasant experience. They need to repay the money they took so enthusiastically and spent willy-nilly on rubbish - all to make the big-spending Greeks happy and keep retiring at 45. 

Reality met up with Greece and the Greeks didn't like reality at all. So, communism!

Good luck Greece! Communism is going to save you no doubt. Just look at what France looks like after a few years of communism "socialism". Now you have Italian communists hailing what Greece has done. Next it will be Spain and then Portugal. All of these countries already run into the ground by the Lefties will now go even more Left and embrace communism, all on the promise of telling the banks to get stuffed.

After all, it's the banks fault that revolving socialist governments have made pie-in-the-sky promises of free stuff to their citizens for decades - all in exchange for the almighty vote. And now that it's come time to repay all those wonderful promises, they want an easy way out. Sure, banks are shysters - we all know that and we all realise that they act in their self-interest - but it's not their fault that governments choose to do business with them.  

You reap what you sow and the typical Lefties apparently don't like the consequences of their actions. They're like big babies. 

So, what better way to make it all better than to blame others for their poor decisions? 

And let's not excuse the voters here. They have voted for this stupidity for decades and now that it's come time to pay the bill they vote for the easy way out. 

This is not going to end well. The EU socialist experiment is beginning to unravel.

Time to bury it before this madness brings more misery.

It is unrealistic to expect Greece to repay its huge debt in full, the chief economics spokesman for the victorious Syriza party has told the BBC.

"Nobody believes that the Greek debt is sustainable," Euclid Tsakalotos said.

The far-left Syriza, which won Sunday's general election, wants to renegotiate Greece's €240bn (£179bn; $270bn) bailout by international lenders.

EU leaders have warned the new Greek government that it must live up to its commitments to the creditors.

Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras - who was sworn in as prime minister on Monday - is expected to unveil his new cabinet later on Tuesday.

'Dangerous Europe'
"I haven't met an economist in their heart of hearts that will tell you that Greece will pay back all of that debt. It can't be done," Mr Tsakalotos said.

He said that EU leaders needed now to show that they were willing to work with Syriza.

"It's going to be a very funny and a very dangerous Europe with very strong centrifugal political forces if they signal that after a democratic vote they're not interested in talking to a new government.

"It will be a final signal that this is a Europe that can't incorporate democratic change and it can't incorporate social change."

But Mr Tsakalotos stressed that it would be "my worst nightmare if the eurozone collapses because Greece falls".

"And if Greece falls and is removed from the eurozone - the eurozone will collapse. We said from the beginning the eurozone is in danger, the euro is in danger, but it isn't in danger from Syriza... it is in danger from the very policies of austerity".

If Syriza were to win its negotiations with the rest of the eurozone, other anti-austerity parties would look more credible to voters. The victory of protectionist Marine le Pen in France's presidential election would be an interesting test of markets' sangfroid.

And if Syriza were to lose in talks with Brussels and Berlin, and the final rupture of Greece from the euro were to take place, investors might well pull their savings from any eurozone country where nationalists are in the ascendant.

So why are investors not in a state of frenzied panic? Why have the euro and stock markets bounced a bit? One slightly implausible explanation is that investors believe the eurozone would actually be stronger without Greece, so long as no other big country followed it out the door.

More likely is that they believe reason will prevail, and Berlin will sanction a write-off of Greece's excessive debts.
