Kill Whitey




April 24, 2010
New hit song in South Africa: 'Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer !'
Jeremy Schaffner American Thinker

When arriving for The Football World Cup in South Africa in June 2010, do not forget to pick up your T-shirt at customs. Rumor has it that the ANC Youth League will be supplying them free of charge. Not wishing to scare off tourists, they only want to get rid of the local white population.



Seriously: this was part of a peaceful protest carried out recently. Now some people in government want to know who the protesters were, presumably to tick them off for casting South Africa in a bad light. It somehow didn't occur to them that they need to take serious steps against the main perpetrator,

Julius Malema is the head of the ANC (African National Congress) Youth League, and delights in singing the "Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer" song at public gatherings. They failed to rope him in, so a civil case was brought by an N.G.O. to stop him singing the song. He ignored a court ruling in favour of the plaintiff, and sang it while visiting Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe.

He had gone there to study their "success;" a country all but destroyed by that socialist dictator. A few days later the National Union of Mineworkers sang it at one of their meetings, taking their cue from Malema. We heard this morning that the disciplinary charges against Malema brought internally by the ANC, are to be dropped. They are powerless to stop him. He and his Youth League are the president's power base. It was they who orchestrated the coup at Polekwane in 2007, putting Jacob Zuma and the radical left in power. If they remove him, they remove themselves. It is out of control.

In the meantime, farm and urban killings continue, as some carry out Malema's instructions. The police try to convince the public that it is just random crime, but this is just an insult to our intelligence. The world will watch with folded arms as South Africa is destroyed, like they watched as Zimbabwe went down the tubes. If it were not for South Africa propping up Zimbabwe economically, and giving work to millions of Zim refugees, legal and illegal, (who are then able to feed their families back home) we would be seeing starvation on a massive scale.

Julius Malema is now on a trip to to see Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, to study their nationalisation model. No doubt he will pick up more than that from Hugo. Can it get worse?

  6. Iranian nuclear scientist requests asylum in Israel
    By ABE SELIG
    25/04/2010 00:33



    Speaking at a cultural event in Ramat Gan on Saturday, Deputy Negev and Galilee Development Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud) said that an Iranian nuclear scientist had broken ranks with the Islamic regime and requested political asylum in Israel.

    While Kara refused to reveal the identity of the scientist, he did say that the Iranian national was currently awaiting a decision on the matter in a “friendly country.”

    Kara added that the scientist had passed his message to Israeli sources through a Jewish woman of Iranian descent, and that he would do all he could to advance the request.

    “I will support any source with the goal of removing the strategic and nuclear threat posed to Israel and posed to the enlightened, democratic world [by Iran],” Kara said during Saturday’s event.

    GENERAL ELECTION 2010: NICK CLEGG SAYS ‘LET ISLAM PRAYER CALL RIN

    Friday April 23,2010
    By Daily Express Reporter
    THE Lib Dem leader is in favour of mosques being able to broadcast calls to prayer from loudspeakers in towns and cities across Britain.
    He says the Islamic “muezzin” cry should be allowed to ring out just like Christian church bells. He described it as “a joyful thing”.
    His remarks emerged yesterday as another gaffe, just hours after he was exposed as saying British people have “a more insidious cross to bear than Germany over the ­Second World War”.

  10. If the knowledgeable Iranian nuclear scientist wishes to emigrate to Israel, that would be indication that he does not consider the nuclear threat to Israel to be extreme, or even worthy of concern.

    In so far as his personal safety, from an Iranian nuclear weapon targeting Israel perspective, would be concerned.

    He knows how far the Iranians are, from a nuclear arms reality, he'd not be moving to the impact area, if he really thought it was one.

  14. the apprehension to stand up to n. korea after they attacked the s. korean ship due to fear of a nuclear exchange is likely to be the same way iran will behave once they start weaponizing. they'll follow the n. korean model and will get the same reaction from the world, that of timidness.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I know how rational folks have a desire for self preservation.

    The fear for the SouKs is not a fanciful "nuclear exchange".

    It is a very real concern about chemical and high explosive artillery shells, targeting the major population center of SouK, the Seoul metro area.

    As anyone that studied the situation there for over an hour would come to realize.

    The SouK have mandatory, universal military service of three years for all males. The CIA tells US:
    Manpower reaching militarily significant age annually:
    male: 371,728


    Times three is over one million men in uniform at any given time.

    With every able bodied male in the country over 22 years of age, a trained, three year term of service, military veteran.

    Our 25,000 troops, there, are window dressing. An Army kingdom for the pampered princes of the BDU set.

    A trip wire for an escalated US retaliation, in case of NorK aggression.

    The Iranians are already in place with this military capacity, both chemical and high explosive artillery and short range missiles.

    US troops are already in the impact areas of those capacities.

    Iranian behavior is what it is, because of their conventional capacity, just as it is for the NorKs.

    The basic nuclear capacity of either is questionable, neither even approaching military capabilities.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I know that no rational nuclear scientist would move to the impact area of the weapon he thought was being built.

    To do so, is irrational, suicidal.

    So either two conclusions can be drawn.

    Either the scientist is puffing his story, looking for a "beach house" instead of a condo in one of the a new J-town settlements.

    Or he's a nut.

    I'd bet on exaggeration for personal and propaganda purposes, rather than insanity, from the Iranian nuclear scientist.

  19. Big Disappointment in Livonia, MI


    Livonia euchre tournament fails to break world record

    Santiago Esparza / The Detroit News
    Livonia -- The Wayne Rotary Foundation tried to break a Guinness World Record for staging the world's largest card tournament Saturday but fell short in its effort.

    The rotary held a euchre tournament at Burton Manor, 27777 Schoolcraft. By 3 p.m., the tally was 589 entrants.

    The current record for a card tournament is 1,024, which was achieved by a group playing mus in Móstoles, Spain, near Madrid in September 2008.

    "We fell short," rotary president Robert Gilbert said as the crowd groaned, "but you're going to have a good time. I really thought we could do it."

    Officials were going to recount the total after they encountered problems during registration. But the recount still was expected to be well below the record...

    As not all people are citizens, even the early days of the Founders, not all persons were complete people, some were only worth 5/8ths, politically.

    Who rules, that's decided by demographics, mostly.

    Most of the Mexicans, in Arizona, are descendants of the indigenous population of North America, prior to Europeon colonization.

    Many US citizens consider themselves to be Mexican, which is marketed to them as "La Raza" or even more generically "Latino", as a race rather than a Nationality. George Lopez of late night TV and Sandra Bullock's employee exemplifies that mind set.

  31. Hundreds seek to fill vacant positions at Pro's Ranch Market


    PHOENIX -- Job hunters turned out in the hundreds to fill recently-vacant positions at Pro's Ranch Market stores, where a federal audit led to the firing of some 300 workers.

    Roxanne Nieves, one of the many that came out in search of a job, said she came to apply after she heard about the layoffs.

    "We heard they are firing a lot of illegal people, so we're here to apply," she said.

    Nonetheless, she and many others felt guilty about taking the jobs of the people who had just been fired.

    "To me, it's pretty hard to see everybody losing jobs," one job hunter said.

    About 300 of the 1,500 total employees at the six Phoenix supermarkets were let go this week after an Immigration and Customs Enforcement audit found them to be working illegally.

    Attorney Julie Pace said the company has I-9 forms on everyone and uses E-Verify to check employees' eligibility to work, but that is not always enough.

    "The company wouldn't know if someone is using counterfeit documents," Pace said.

    Pace also called on the federal government to help companies comply with hiring laws.

    "We need an easy program for employers to use to hire people -- safe, easy, quick -- so we don't have to deal with ICE audits," she said.

  33. The federal audit that spawned the firings has looked at more than 1,600 businesses across the U.S. since July 2009, including 84 here in Arizona.

    Pro's Ranch Market employees about 1,500 people at its six stores in the Phoenix metro area.


    Now in a year the Federals audited 1,600 businesses. Doing the simple math, 250 workdays. they're averaging six per day.

    Six a day, like a beer habit.

    How many businesses are there, in the United States?

    I am not sure, but it's gonna take a lot of days, though, to audit them all, I'm sure of that.

  37. Finance Reform.

    The GOP took a lot of heat for refusing to support the Healthcare Reform bill. Much of the criticism was justified if one goes merely on the motives behind their actions or inactions if you will. However, the bill was flawed, and the GOP ended up doing the right thing even if for the wrong reasons.

    Now the GOP is being blasted for opposing financial reform. And on the surface it appears that the GOP is merely supporting the fat cats on wall street. Again those appearances may actually reflect reality. But again, this may be another case of the GOP doing the right thing for the wrong reasons.
    The more I learn about this bill the less I like it.

    Like the HC bill it has a lot of good stuff in it, needed regulation; but on the other hand, it also contains some toxic provisions.

  38. More on Cowardly Comedy Central

    Fox News is always blasting the ACLU. Yet this is what the ACLU had to say about the Comedy Central's recent censoring of South Park's program on Muhammad.

    "As UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh noted, the consequence of Comedy Central kowtowing to a blatant death threat "is that the thugs win and people have more incentive to be thugs. Behavior that gets rewarded gets repeated."

    Cowardly Central

    And here we have Bill O'Reilly's reaction.

    "Surely it is O'Reilly's responsibility as a leading broadcaster to do that small bit to keep the airwaves free.

    "Alas, this man of the folks doesn't see it that way..."


    [As Bill criticised the South Park producers for trying to put on their show, he said]

    "You don't want to give in to the intimidating forces of evil," he said. "But you got to deal with reality. And these people are killers and they will kill you."

  42. Top Spanish bullfighter gored in Mexico


    "One of Spain's top matadors was seriously injured in Mexico when a 1,100-pound (500-kilogram) bull gored him in the groin and hoisted him into the air, causing major blood loss, his manager said Sunday.

    "Jose Tomas lost up to eight liters (17 pints) of blood after being gored Saturday by a beast named Navegante in the Mexican city of Aguascalientes..."


    Bullfighter Gored

    I lost my appetite for hunting when I was young, but on my first visit to Mexico I went to see a bull fight. I think there was actually about three fights that day.

    In one of them, the matador wasn't quite quick enough. The bull gored him and threw him about 10 feet right up into the stands. I never did hear what happened to the guy.

    On that day it would have been Matadors 2, Bulls 1 but of course the bull never actually wins.

    A few months back, I heard Spain was actually considering outlawing bull fighting.

    Probably a good thing.

    China imports about the same amount; and their imports are Growing rapidly every year.

    We import around 10 Million bbls/day, and the EU a similar amount.

    The Exporting nations Peaked in amount available for export in 2006.

    There is not ONE chance in a thousand that there will be as much oil available for "export" in 2012 as there is Today.

    The Department of Defense "Joint Operating Environment" study states that, at our current rate of growth/usage the world will be 10 Million Barrels/Day in deficit by 2015.

    Japan is busy "being Japan." China is busy running all over the world "making deals, and buying oil reserves."

  58. Let's see how all those oil deals hold up when the countries that made the deals feel that they were hoodwinked by the Chinese.

    Aramco comes to mind.

    Aramco:

    Saudi Aramco dates back to May 29, 1933, when the Saudi Arabian government signed a concessionary agreement with Standard Oil of California (Socal), allowing the company to explore Saudi Arabia for oil.

    Standard Oil of California assigned this concession to a wholly-owned subsidiary called California-Arabian Standard Oil Co. (Casoc).

    In 1936 with the company having no success at locating oil, the Texas Oil Company purchased a 50% stake of the concession.

    After a long search for oil that lasted around four years without success, the first success came with the seventh drill site in Dammam, an area located a few miles north of Dhahran in 1938, a well referred to as Dammam number 7. The development of this well, which immediately produced over 1,500 barrels per day (240 m3/d), gave the company confidence to continue and flourish.

    The company name was changed in 1944 from California-Arabian Standard Oil Company to Arabian American Oil Company (or Aramco). In 1948, Standard Oil of California and the Texas Oil Company were joined as investors by Standard Oil of New Jersey who purchased 30% of the company, and Socony Vacuum who purchased 10% of the company, leaving Standard Oil of California and the Texas Oil Company with equal 30% shares.

    In 1950, King Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud threatened to nationalize his country's oil facilities, thus pressuring Aramco to agree to share profits 50/50. A similar process had taken place with American oil companies in Venezuela a few years earlier.

    The American government granted US Aramco member companies a tax break known as the golden gimmick equivalent to the profits given to Ibn Saud.

    In 1973, following US support for Israel during the Yom Kippur War the Saudi Arabian government acquired a 25% share of Aramco, increased the share to 60% by 1974, and finally acquired full control of Aramco by 1980.

    In November 1988, the company changed its name from Arabian American Oil Company to Saudi Arabian Oil Company (or Saudi Aramco).

    White farmers 'being wiped out'
    Over 3,000 have been killed since 1994. Now the ANC is accused of fanning the hate.


    Times on Line

    Dan McDougall in Ceres, Western Cape

    THE gunmen walked silently through the orchard. Skirting a row of burnt-out tyres, set ablaze months earlier to keep the budding fruit from freezing, they drew their old .38 revolvers.

    Inside his farmhouse Pieter Cillier, 57, slept with his 14-year-old daughter Nikki at his side. His 12-year-old son JD was having a sleepover with two teenagers in an adjoining room.

    As the intruders broke in, the farmer woke. He rushed to stop them, only to be shot twice in the chest.

    In his death throes he would have seen his killers and then his children standing over him, screaming and crying.

    Death has stalked South Africa’s white farmers for years. The number murdered since the end of apartheid in 1994 has passed 3,000.

    In neighbouring Zimbabwe, a campaign of intimidation that began in 2000 has driven more than 4,000 commercial farmers off their land, but has left fewer than two dozen dead.

    The vulnerability felt by South Africa’s 40,000 remaining white farmers intensified earlier this month when Julius Malema, head of the African National Congress’s (ANC’s) youth league, opened a public rally by singing Dubula Ibhunu, or Shoot the Boer, an apartheid-era anthem, that was banned by the high court last week.

  63. It doesn't matter, Deuce. The amounts they are contracting for are relatively small in the general scheme of things. They are, quite simply, grasping at straws.

    Here's the deal. It is, with the newest technology, very easy to "find oil." They are "finding" a ton of it. Here's the problem. It's in small pockets, and it's very, very deep, and hard to get to. Most ALL of it is in "Deep Water."

    I read where the insurable losses on the latest Gulf of Mexico disaster are in the tens of billions.

    It is only a 100,000 bbl/day field (the world uses 86 MILLION bbl/day.) When you go that deep the temperatures, and pressure are enormous. A gazillion things can go wrong. And, they are ALL catastrophic.

    There is virtually zero chance of ever finding another E. Texas, or Ghawar, or Burgan. And if we did find one (the Russian Frontier is our last hope) it wouldn't affect the "peak oil" date, anyway. It would take years to develop, and the "Peak" is upon us.

    I am NOT pro-China, or Anti-China. They are what they are. I'm trying to say we are getting real damned close to the "deep shit." Our leaders know it, and they're afraid to talk about it. They want to redirect your attention (until after their retirement) to whether we should pay some poor sap's doctor bills, or whether we should import "More" future Patients.

  65. You are correct. I have no subscription to be concerned about, no advertisers and no constituents.

    Most of the American and European Press use euphemism and in many cases ignore what is obvious to many people. Political correctness is nothing if it is not propaganda and outright intellectual dishonesty.

    I say nothing on this blog that I will not say in person and do so in fact.

    If the truth as I see it disturbs, I expect to be challenged, welcome it and respond to it.

    I argue facts and do not disparage an honest disagreement based on conflicting facts and contradictions.

    I know how to admit that I am wrong, but not without a fight. I mostly win most arguments, but when wrong usually go down inflames.

  67. Sorry, Deuce. It's likely you will not drum up much outrage at the plight of the South African farmer.

    Is it wrong? Of course.

    But South Africa is in a galaxy far far away. How does it really affect world affairs?

    The number of people affected is miniscule in the tragedy that is Africa. You have millions of people dying in the Sudan, Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia, Nigeria, well, one could go on. They are dying of desease, famine, war, ethnic cleansing, you name it.

    Does the fact that it is whites being killed by blacks raise the significance as opposed to blacks being killed by blacks?

  72. I think I tend to make comments on this blog that I would make sitting, having drinks, with a couple of close friends. They're a little over the top, quite often, and said more "for effect" than for enlightenment.

    It's in such informal circumtances that you gripe about your "family," bitch about your boss, and rail against the "Guvmint." I've been giving the Publicans hell, recently, because I'm so fucking pissed off that they "screwed the pooch" on the economy. Turns out they were just as dumb as me, and I don't want a government as "Dumb as I."

    I, also, recognize that there are thousands of honest, hard working, in all ways admirable Dutch farmers in Zimbabwe, and S. Africa. I'm just pissed at them as a group for not taking larger steps to avoid the disaster in the making. In all honesty, they didn't "give much back" when they were in control.

    No, posts like this one are, I believe, what make "The Bar."

  73. Speaking of taking the conversation in a different direction, I am proposing that we have an annual EB awards ceremony. Maybe in mid-January and covering the previous year. In this case 2010.

    For some reason the name Bosco popped into my head.

    The Bosco awards.

    Yea, that's the ticket.

    Maybe in the shape of a small bear.

    Of course any details like that would have to be developed or approved by Deuce and Whit.

    As a time line we would have to get going pretty soon. Within the next couple of weeks we would need to solicit a list of categories for the awards such as;

    "The Best Comic Video Post"

    or

    "The Deuce Life-Time Achievment Award"


    You know, stuff like that.

    Once we have a list of the categories, we can start taking note of the posts here. By say December 1, we could start nominating posts for the various categories and then hand out the awards in January.

    Sweet.

    Or am I going a little crazy here?

  75. John Stossel and the Media’s “Statist Syndrome”

    "“I started out by viewing the marketplace as a cruel place, where you need intervention by government and lawyers to protect people,” Stossel explained shortly after undergoing his transformation. “But after watching the regulators work, I have come to believe that markets are magical and the best protectors of the consumer.”

    In fact, Stossel realized that in most cases regulators and bureaucrats only made matters worse, spending billions of tax dollars on so-called “solutions” that invariably wound up creating larger problems. Needless to say, Stossel’s conversion to free market, libertarian principles – which he trumpeted every bit as loudly as he had previously trumpeted government interventionism – was not warmly received by his colleagues.

    "Once I started applying the same skepticism to government, I stopped winning awards," the 19-time Emmy Award-winner said.

  89. From Rufus' link:

    China "has been very successful in offering Iran technology and capabilities that are actually wanted, as opposed to those that might be 'nice to have.'

    "A path has been found through the factions within Iranian officialdom (and its armed forces) to deliver products that build trust in Beijing. In return, China gains influence with Tehran that can be parlayed into access to Iran's natural resources."

    While these Chinese-origin systems have provided Iran with invaluable missile technology, this has had little or no impact on the development of its ballistic missile capabilities.

    "Iran's strategic weapons can only (ultimately) involve it in a losing battle with the United States,' Hewson concluded, "but its tactical weapons have already altered the regional balance of power in a much more practical way."

    What is not stated and is obvious is that China has a price for sanctions against Iran and it is called Taiwan.

    The only thing I see different from the status quo in this law is, if they get their hands on you, you'd better be "legal."

    I think what would have happened in the past (in some localities, anyway,) was you'd be arrested for driving without a license, ICE would be informed, they would say, "we're not interested," and, eventually, you'd eventually be released (on bail/time served/etc.

    Would driving erratically, w/o driver's license, or other acceptable ID, and the inability to speak English be "Reasonable" suspicion?" Probably.

    Would a blue-eye, blond lady running a red light, and saying, "oops, I forgot my wallet" be enough? It would probably warrant the action that's taken at present. Run the tags, run the supposed name of the driver, a brief question, and answer. Any more than that and the stinky brown stuff starts flying like "who'd a thot it."

  114. Australia Saturday clamped down on foreigners buying property after complaints that a rapid influx of Asian money had helped make its housing among the most expensive in the world.

    The government reimposed tough rules relaxed in 2008 that say temporary residents need permission to buy homes and must sell when they leave, while foreigners investing from abroad can only buy new properties.

    The rules are backed by stiff new penalties including compulsory sell orders, as well as expanded monitoring and a crackdown on real estate agents who help foreigners flout the rules.


    They follow growing disquiet that ordinary Australians are being priced out of the market after a decade-long property boom that has accelerated over the past year.

  128. Moving from the Shadows

    So where are we heading? Hard to say at the moment since we have significant noise with the federal tax credit ending and with the $10,000 California tax credit starting, we’ll have to wait a few more months to see if the market can stand on its own two feet.

    People think that the markets can continue to have unlimited funding backed by the government.

    This is not true. Just look at Greece (or even at our own state budget issues). At a certain point, an event takes place and borrowing is no longer as cheap as it once was.
    This will happen and it is only a matter of time.


    Too much debt is out in the system but for the moment, Southern California has fallen into a trend.

    The above data helps put things in perspective and also shows that the market can only stabilize with massive government support.
    Will that support continue indefinitely?
