AmaBhulu the Blog


AmaBhulu – The Birth and Death of the Second America was first published in November 2013 as an e-book, and is now also available in a 630 page B&W printed softcover edition. This work is a comprehensive study of the complete history of South Africa, but with the unique differentiation that it tracks a few real bloodlines through that entire history. AmaBhulu describes how real individuals of European and North American descent experienced that epic history on the ground. The reader is placed among these real people. The author is the first to point out that his family is in this respect “dreadfully typical” and completely representative. AmaBhulu is therefore not a family history, but a History of a Nation by way of a few example bloodlines who happened to have been at the key formative events in that history.

These bloodlines systematically converge and by the 1950s they lead to the author and his wife, proving the author’s natural DNA-based authority in writing on the subject. AmaBhulu thereby also differs from the library of books by British newspapermen talking either about or to Afrikaners who are then treated as “subjects”. In AmaBhulu the world may hear an ordinary Afrikaner—not a reporter beholden to his editor, politician beholden to his party, or government-paid political history professor beholden to his pay cheque—talking about his own people based on actual experience, backed by solid evidence. The author is beholden to no one and no thing; only to his conscience, to his ethics, and to his respect for evidence.

AmaBhulu provides more than 1280 notes in evidence and a massive 270 bibliographic entries in support of any points it makes. The evidence is often from 17th-19th century texts, communications, or diaries. In more recent cases, the evidence is provided from British Hansard records and recently cleared US State Department documents. The author even provides recent documented supporting evidence from the enemy he was opposing.

Join the author in the epic and painful story of the Afrikaner nation as it evolves at the southern tip of Africa to build the country that became to Africa what America was to the world in the 20th century. In one sense, it is the story of what would have happened to the United States if it had not gained independence in the 18th century.

In 1797 the British Royal Navy was concerned that South Africa would become a “Second America” and take India from them. AmaBhulu holds stern warning for the First America if it wishes to avoid the present sad fate of the Second America.


US Military Interest near South Africa


, , , , ,

—The United States has been working away at facilities at Thebephatshwa air base inside Botswana, the country most strategically situated with respect to South Africa and several other Southern African countries. More particularly, it is situated just west of Molepolole, itself some miles west of the capital of Gaberone.  The capitals of South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho are all within about 600 miles of that base, and important parts of Malawi, Congo and Angola are within 1000 miles. One wonders whether President Trump knows this.

What the United States wishes to do there, I do not know. However, it certainly is interesting, considering the increasingly unstable situation in South Africa. Under its ANC ruling party and new president Cyril Ramaphosa it is rapidly morphing into the Democratic People’s Republic of Azania, a haven for racist socialism, hell bent on emulating Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and its original teacher, the U.S.S.R. This very day an ANC Government Commission adopted a resolution that Section 25 of the Constitution be amended to allow expropriation without compensation of (read “white-owned”) property.

Botswana, on the other hand, can realistically be considered the most stable, Western oriented, and pragmatic country in Africa. It has, for practical puprposes, a population belonging to a single tribe or nation, the ba’Tswana. That explains the stability. The majority of the ba’Tswana, however, live in South Africa. Yes, you heard right:  they already have their own HUGE country of which the border with South Africa was settled in the late 1800s. In fact, three times as many Tswana people live in South Africa as in Botswana. Go figure!

Americans may feel entirely free to scratch their heads, because their teacher and CNN never told them that. Then again, what mindless idiot trusts CNN to be informative?

Oh yes, and those aircraft in the first image?:- Vietnam Era Northrop F-5A “Freedom Fighters”. The United States exported quite a few of those. I do not know where the Botswana Defence Force got theirs.

As to the official US position, as stated by American Deputy Ambassador to Gaborone, Michael Murphy:

The United States, working with the Botswana Defence Force (BDF), has contracted the construction of facilities to support future, mutually-agreed bilateral and multilateral exercises at Thebephatshwa Airbase, Molepolole, Botswana. We are not constructing a U.S. military base, and we are not planning to relocate AFRICOM headquarters to Botswana.This project, a direct result of Botswana hosting Exercise SOUTHERN ACCORD in August 2012, underscores the close and ongoing partnership between the BDF and United States.

He added that the construction block consists of administration, instructional and latrine facilities. “These particular facilities were chosen so that if Botswana and the United States agreed to a future exercise at Thebephatshwa, the exercise will not disrupt normal BDF operations,” he said.

This is not the first American presence at the base. The US DoD was there in 2006, as may be seen from the photo on the left. For those unfamiliar with military uniforms of the world, the American general would be the gentleman on the left, Army Gen. William E. “Kip” Ward, U.S. European Command deputy at the time.

For Americans, the pronounciation is Te-be-Putsh-wah, with the “e” pronounced as in “ten” and the “u” as in “hunt”.

So, while I could probably count on the fingers of one hand the number of Americans who know where Botswana is, at least the other 330 million may hereby rest assured that their military will have latrines in case nature calls.

As to where it is located, the map below might help. One cannot really get more central than that in Southern Africa and still have a tarred (blacktop) road.

Somehow, the erection of latrines is always the first item at a military base. Been there, done that!

Viktor Orbán Lays it All Out


, , ,

Viktor and the Hungarians

—Viktor Orbán, the leader of Hungary, is not well liked by Western Liberals. He seems to go against every one of their “Socialist Spaceship Earth” principles. His resistance to the passage of Syrian refugees was one example. For their part, the Western Liberals love to paint him as some sort of Fascist. It is therefore with some interest that I read his address of 23 October 2018. His passion for his nation’s history shines through. It is abundantly clear that he does not want the unique Hungarian nation to disappear into a characterless pan-European nation so that Soros, the arch Globalist of today, might float all-powerfully above it all. He does not want to be run from Brussels. I think it is clear how CNN with its light-pink glasses might see Orbán as a “Nationalist Monster”.

This is not the first time that Orbán has featured in these pages. I wrote about him in relation to the Brexit effort of Nigel Farage and its connection to President Trump, then candidate Trump. Of the various individuals linked in my previous post referred to here, Orbán is the only who has had to actually live under the Communist yoke. He is not about to swap Moscow for Brussels.

For those who do not know, The Hungarians and the Finns are two nations that do not fit into the general groupings of European nations. Their languages are quite distinct from any of the Germanic, Latin, or Slavic languages of Europe. Finnish is not an Indo-European language at all, and was a major inspiration in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings in respect of the Elven language. Hungarians and their language are similarly odd-fitting in Europe. As with the Finns, their language is Finno-Ugric and related to that of the Estonians. The point is, the Hungarians are rightly proud of their unique culture and language and do not want it submerged in some sort of “Bland Vanilla Europe.”

Further to the above, the Hungarians have played a major role in the undoing of the Soviet Union. Anyone with even a minor interest in the history of the 20th century must know how bravely the Hungarians stood up to the Soviets in 1956 and how terribly they were repressed. They had come out on the side of Germany in WWII. That did not help them with the Russians. They also played a major role in the run-up to the Fall of the Berlin Wall. The Pan-European Picnic comes to mind. Their entire history is filled with failed uprisings and they have shed much blood for their dreams. Save up and take a trip on the Danube to go look at their memorials and statues. It is quite something!

The Poster Boys of the Political Divide in the West

I am an expatriate member of a nation that has been denied its destiny: the Afrikaner, be he White, Brown or Black and irrespective of language. I can therefore understand what is going on in the hearts of the Hungarians. I do not have to agree with everything Orbán says, but I can fully understand “where he is coming from” and why he resents Brussels and characters like George Soros so intensely.

Of course, we need to remember that George Soros is really György Schwartz, who was born in Hungary and survived the German occupation during WWII. “Soros” managed to leave there in 1947, and so he has little experience of the Communist period. So, this contest between the arch-Nationalist Orbán and the light-pink billionaire Schwartz is a fascinating one of much greater significance than just the independence of Hungary. They are in fact two Hungarian poster boys for the two extremes of the current polar political divide in the West.

In my own life, in the very heart of the Cold War around 1976, I managed to communicate on the subject of Physics with a professor in Hungary. To me it was intriguing that the communication could cut through the deepest divide on Earth. I finally managed to visit Hungary very briefly in 2015 and found it hugely interesting, if still bearing the scars and regression of the Soviet era. The picture above was taken on a lightning tour through Budapest. I absorbed just enough to get respect for these folks. This was certainly Europe, but a very different Europe from the one I knew.

Connecting the Dots


, , ,

—Dan Happel is a conservative American and host of a show that he calls Connecting the Dots. I have appeared several times on his show in which the parallels between the USA and South Africa are highlighted and I extract for Americans the lessons they need to learn from the South African experience. With Americans going to the polls two weeks from now, it is a good time to remind folks of these lessons and of the consequences of not heeding them. Those who have followed this blog will know that I have posted links to several of these programmes. I have now found that two more of the shows are available to non-subscribers. They may be found HERE (30 March 2017) and HERE (28 December 2017).

South African Land Expropriation and the Beast


, , ,

—Today, I was interviewed for the seventh time by Erin Ryan and Bill Cundiff of I provided an update on the Land Expropriation matter in South Africa, covered the Drop Dead Important Historical Facts about the country, and then presented my thesis on the subject of “The Beast that stalks all of us in the West“. The complete interview may be accessed HERE.

South Africa’s problems arrived at Cape Town around 1800 on the back of Johannes Theodorus van der Kemp and the London Missionary Society. This bunch was little more than a bevy of liars, called out pretty much as such by British judges around 1815, at the time of the infamous Black Circuit Court. Any good they may have done in respect of missionary work was wholly undone by their political activities both in South Africa and in London, particularly the latter. This author traces pretty much all that went wrong in South Africa to the 19th century activities of this organisation.

I follow their progress and influence through the history of South Africa and show how the US now faces the same kind of forces today. By 1835, the London Missionary Society was allied with the Liberal Media against the ordinary people of the country, who were the “Deplorables” of that time, to steal a term coined by Hillary Clinton.

Today the United States faces a Left as an incarnation of the London Missionary Society aided by the Left Liberal media; the same alliance whose efforts eventually destroyed South Africa.

This author prays that the disgraceful events around the appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US  Supreme Court has finally shown Americans just exactly how vile this Left/Media cabal really is. Given how it has obfuscated and abused the truth about President Trump, about his election campaign, and about Judge Kavanaugh in America, imagine what they could do to a voiceless nation stuck at the far end of Africa.

And that is exactly what they have been doing all my life.
