AmaBhulu the Blog

Featured

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.

A Good Man Speaks Out

, , ,

— Alex Newman is an American freelance journalist who is best known for his articles in the New American. He is one of the dismally few Americans who have a working grasp of the realities of South Africa. He has warned for decades about the ANC. Like myself, he sees in the events in South Africa a dire warning for the United States and the entire West. The kind of forces that brought about the collapse of Western Civilization in South Africa are at work in North America and Europe. I have written quite a bit about that, and it is the thesis of my book AmaBhulu.

Newman has published in the past week a new extended video on the subject of South Africa that I believe the whole world needs to see. THIS LINK will take the reader to the video. It addresses essentially the same issue. He quite correctly refers to the Afrikaner as the American’s Closest Cousin on Earth. The parallels are quite uncanny.

As a proven friend of South Africa and a man I have dealt with quite bit, he should be taken seriously. We’ve done joint interviews and have spoken at the same conferences. He is a man to reckon with and to count on. It should be mentioned that it is Alex who contacted me, seeking help for refugee South Africans. His heart is solidly in the right place.

Of course he and I differ on some points, particularly as regards US politics and the characters who populate it, but that is a healthy difference of views between mature people — something that is no longer possible in South Africa.

I think we all know a good man when we meet him, and Alex is every inch that man.

Lana Marks Finally Approved as US ambassador to SA

Tags

, , ,

— Lana Marks, whose nomination I addressed on 21 November 2018, around ten months ago, was finally approved as the United States Ambassador to South Africa yesterday, 26 September 2019. I have no idea why this should have taken so long. Perhaps the House of Representatives is too busy trying to assail the US president, and the Senate too busy defending, to actually do any real work. Perhaps Americans should think on these things. If the US Democrats had spent as much time on the USSR as it has spent on attacking President Trump over the past three years, that Communist Empire may well have fallen in the 1970s, so to speak.

This means we now have (1) a USA Ambassador in Pretoria, and (2) a  National Security Advisor in Washington who can both speak Afrikaans. Marks can speak isiXhosa, so she knows darn well that “Bulala amaBhulu” means “Kill the Whites”. She cannot pretend not to. Both have actual experience of South Africa, which is more than can be said for any of their predecessors.

Most of the world thinks that all is perfect in South Africa, because the anguish of non-Black folks is being buried, at least in part by themselves. I know it is not in the character of the folks, but the time has come to “Scream your bloody heads off“. It is time to be in the street in front of the US Embassy in Pretoria with placards and much shouting and screaming. Unfortunately, that is what gets US attention. Just talking sensibly will not work.

This is the moment in which FW de Klerk can do the one thing that might redeem him in the eyes of his own people. He could meet with both these individuals and tell them that the entire New South Africa experiment was a terrible disaster. He can ask for their help in fixing the disgusting mess he precipitated on the lives of those who put their faith in him back in 1990. That is the least he could do before he sheds this mortal coil. He could follow that up by handing his Nobel Prize back to Norwegian King Harald V in the presence of the World Media. If he does not act, he will go to his grave marinated in the undying hatred of his own people and his name will live in infamy. But, I’m not holding my breath.

Non-black South Africans desperately need a leader of character at this time.

South Africa and the New US National Security Advisor

Tags

, , ,

Robert O’Brien

— On September 18, 2019 President Trump named his new National Security Advisor. Non-Americans may find it interesting to know that this post does NOT require ratification by the US Senate. President Trump can choose whomsoever he pleases. He has chosen Robert O’Brien (above). He is the fourth person in three years to serve in that role under President Trump, being preceded by Gen. Michael Flynn, H.R. McMaster, and, most recently, John Bolton of the famous mustache and vividly hawkish convictions.

O’Brien, an attorney, has made a name for himself as a hostage negotiator, being appointed to the position of Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs by President Trump on May 10, 2018. He has written on US Foreign Policy. He is a man who believes that the world is a better place when America acts from a position of strength. This author would agree.

Fluent in Afrikaans?

His appointment is significant.  Raised a Catholic, O’Brien converted to the Mormon faith and spent time in South Africa in the 1980s. More particularly, he was there during some of the worst violence and saw what the ANC terrorist organization, now the government of South Africa, is capable of. He spent a year at Free State University as a Rotary Foundation Scholar and is reputedly fluent in Afrikaans. This is something for which the intellectually bankrupt Left in the United States will likely pillory him.

ANC Violence while he was in South Africa

On 7 November 1985, while in South Africa at the age of only about 20, he wrote an interesting article from Johannesburg for the Baptist Press, a news service of the Southern Baptist Convention. One assumes this was before his religious conversion. The title of his piece was “Apartheid Protest Breeds Intolerance in Reverse“. In this article, Black South African Baptists are interviewed. One of them describes how he had to watch helplessly as a black girl was burnt to death, the mob knocking her down every time she got up while they threatened to burn alive anyone who tried to help her. Ronald Reagan himself described some of that so-called “necklacing” horror (below), but America would simply not listen at the time. Today Reagan is revered by all as a departed president. It is amazing how the same people would not listen to him about South Africa.

Amanzimtoti

Six weeks later, on 23 December 1985, an operative of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the “military” wing of the ANC, planted a limpet mine in the Shopping Mall under the towering Sanlam Centre in Amazimtoti, Natal (below). White women and children were killed in the attack.  The terrorist killer, Andrew Zondo, later explained in court that he had done it because there were many white people there. One of those “many white people” was this present author’s own mother, who lived in an upstairs apartment in that building.

Having drawn blood, the ANC tried again a few weeks later. This time the mine was discovered before it went off. On this occasion my mother WAS indeed near the bomb and she describes how the Police practically carried her out of the building at high speed, her feet barely touching the ground here and there.

The Attitude of the ANC

I trust it is appropriate to point out to the thinking world—which I would like to believe still has some morality—that the ANC clique in power in that area has renamed the street past the building to Andrew Zondo Road, immortalizing the killer of the innocent. Imagine North Harvey Avenue, the street past the now-demolished Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City (below), being named after bomber Timothy McVeigh. This is exactly what the ANC is doing to white people in South Africa and the organization relishes it. And the ever-left-leaning World Media is silent.

Decent human beings note that the memorial (below) created at what used to be the location of the Alfred P. Murrah building is dedicated to the victims. In South Africa the street is dedicated to the killer. A secondary school has also been named after him. That should tell any person of sound morals exactly what the ANC government of South Africa actually is.

For those who did not know, Umkohonto we Sizwe was created by Nelson Mandela, and one can find in his “auto”-biography the details of how he fought to ensure it was indeed created. That “auto”-biography was actually ghostwritten by Richard Stengel, a later member of President Obama’s Administration. It is truly tiresome to hear thinking people turn Mandela into an “angel of peace.” They apparently have trouble reading, especially when their hero confesses his role in his own book.

There is always Hoping

I would assume, without knowing for a fact, that Mr. O’Brien was still in Johannesburg when these events took place in Amazimtoti and were front-page prime time news. One hopes and prays that some of this has left at least some impression on his memory and that he will not conveniently forget the truth of what he learnt  in South Africa. In fact, the truth has turned out to be amazingly fragile in recent times under the direction of the US Left. In fact, it has become difficult to locate at all.

Then again, there is always hoping.

Why the Extreme Violence in South Africa?

Tags

, , ,

— On 8 September 2019, I joined Erin Ryan and Bill Cundiff on their US internet radio channel, WeThePeopleRadio. The subject was the “Xenophobic Violence” of Black South Africans against foreign Black people.

I addressed the matter under the following headings, providing supporting audio clips in evidence of each point:

  • The Views of the so-called “Foreigners”
  • The Views of the Attackers
  • The Views of Julius “Ki(ll/s) the Whites” Malema
  • The Attitude of the National ANC-run Police
  • Where does this violence come from? (a): The 1980s
  • Where does this violence come from? (b): The Mfecane of 1816-1836

The reader can find the entire two hour show HERE. The actual content starts at minute 8:43. The audio clips played on the show are spread over some years. We hear Ghanaian business owners and mechanics complain that South African Black people “do not want to work“. We hear from a tearful and frightened young Burundian woman that she is forced to leave the country. We hear some of the “foreigners” explain how the country was better before the ANC took over in 1994. We hear the same from none other than Julius Malema. Of course Malema is also the one that said on another occasion that “we are all Makwerekwere (foreigners)“. He suffers from these bouts of message-inversion, but logic is not the strong point of Africa.

We hear the crass anti-immigrant and vividly anti-white stance of a Black ANC Deputy Police Minister. To this is added the Zulu Police Minister, Behki Cele, addressing a crowd of weapon wielding men from the hostels in Johannesburg. This leads to questions about the ethnic Zulu component of this violence.

We trace the violence back to the 1980s when the ANC was doing its absolute damnedest to destabilize the country. We hear an ANC comrade explain how men he knows were spared “necklacing” by Black mobs when the “hated White Police” arrived back in the 1980s. We rely on Winnie Mandela to blurt out at Munsieville in April 1986 how she and her colleagues would “liberate the country with their necklaces“, and then we leave it to US President Ronald Reagan to describe to American readers just exactly what a “necklacing” is. Earlier, we hear how black attackers describe “necklacing” in the past few years. When a British reporter asks them why they think it is OK to do this to a fellow human being, the justify it on the basis that they “are angry”.

Finally, we take the audience back to the late 1820s during the Mfecane (The Great Crushing), when Robert Moffat of the London Missionary Society visited renegade Zulu leader, Mzilikazi of the Khumalo clan of the Zulu. By then, Mzilikazi was located at the site of the present Hartebeestpoort Dam, just west of the present Pretoria. I leave it to the present reader to listen to the excerpt I read to the audience and then decide whether it is relevant or not. In the show I do not mention that Mzilikazi also executed a brave warrior in Moffat’s presence by having him thrown off the cliff overlooking the local river to the crocodiles waiting below. The river in question, of course, is named the Crocodile River; what else? One never gets away from history.

Henry Ford famously said “History is bunk”.
Of course, Henry Ford is now history.

On Radio Free SA with Karin & Schalk

Tags

, , ,

 

— On 3 September 2019 I joined Karin Smith and her co-host Schalk van der Merwe (left) on the air. Schalk is based in South Africa. Karin runs a channel called Radio Free South Africa. Her invitation was precipitated by the current violence against foreign black people in South Africa. Some of that behavior may be traced back in history.

My focus was strongly on the Mfecane of 1816-1836, which I treated in my Blog series “Who stole the land?”

We also touched on the trend in the US toward denigrating anything done by or created by White people. I trace the latter to the 1780s, using a young French adventurer in South Africa as example.

The whole 2-hour show may be heard or downloaded HERE.  The actual show starts at minute 4.01 and I join at minute 14.48. The Webpage for the show is HERE. The controls for the radio session is at the top of the web page.

As any South African would know, the Trekkers of 1836-1840 fought Mzilikatse and Dingane, the successor to Shaka. So I obviously made a mistake in the heat of the moment during the show when I said they fought Mzilikatse and Shaka. Chapter 8 of my series “Who Stole the Land?” and my book AmaBhulu both make that abundantly clear.

Killing the White Devil

Tags

, , ,

— On 27 August 2019 I joined Dan Happel on his US radio program titled “Connecting the Dots”. On this occasion Dan’s concern was the current trend in the United States toward demonizing all white people and toward denigrating the institutions they had created. This concern of his led him to consider what is happening to white people in South Africa. As Dan rightly puts it, “America is seeing the destruction of traditional American institutions and values by many of our elected public leaders who are promoting ideas and policies that are openly Marxist, just like South Africa.

So much of what has been happening in South Africa has direct bearing on the United States that it may justifiably be viewed as the proving ground for the future of the United States. He titled this episode “Killing the White Devil”.

The whole two hour interview may be heard HERE.

Black American meets African American

Tags

, , , ,

— The Rumours of my demise are Highly Exaggerated

— I have neglected my blog over the past two months for two reasons. Firstly, I have been totally consumed by matters relating to the Western Cape Option that I presented in the previous article of May 2019. Secondly, I have taken a break that took me to the Southeastern United States. I would like to share two little events that took place on that trip.

The first relates to who we are as non-Ba’Ntu South Africans and the second relates to whether the situation in South Africa is entering the general awareness of Americans. Always remember, the ANC came to power because of awareness about South African matters in the USA from 1984 to 1994. The instigators of that awareness were Desmond Tutu and Randall Robinson; mostly the latter. They engineered all the pressure on the country and the withdrawal of its international loan and credit facilities. That is what pushed FW de Klerk to take the steps he did in 1990. After 1994, Americans lost interest – the collective American attention span is, unfortunately, almost criminally short.

At the National Air & Space Museum

We had just finished going through the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum (picture below). Desperate to avoid the worst of the heat, we got two seats at a table in the Museum’s cafeteria. At one point my wife got up to go and buy an ice cream, and I turned to talk to the gentleman sitting next to me. His wife was across the table from him.

He was from Mississippi and Louisiana and his wife was from New Orleans proper. I asked her whether that meant that she was specifically from across Lake Pontchartrain. She smiled and confirmed, adding that the husband may claim to be from Louisiana, but that does not allow him to say he is from New Orleans. He turned out to be a US Army veteran.

They asked me where we were from and I explained that we were from Vancouver in Canada. She got the classic incredulous expression on her face and so I explained that we’d been living in Vancouver for 19 years, and were originally from South Africa. And then I added with a smile, “So, at this table I am the African American and you are Black Americans. You are not allowed to steal my title!

Their faces lit up, and a conversation followed about the US, South Africa, Racism in the US, etc. In the process, the husband explained how, when he was a kid, the Ku Klux Klan held a gathering in full regalia on their school grounds and no one in authority at the school seemed to think anything of it. She explained how she reads White folks in America. For my part, I explained the origin of the White folks in SA, and told them that, in South Africa, it is the White folks who have the slave ancestors, not the Black Ba’Ntu South Africans, some of whom, such as the amaXhosa, had enslaved other Black South Africans in the past.

When I told them about my ancestor Isabella van Angola, the discussion turned to Genealogy and DNA. Both husband and wife whipped out their cell phones and showed me their DNA maps. He had Angolan ancestry and she had Mozambican, and also Nordic. I explained about the Portuguese Slave Trade and how they never took slaves in what is now South Africa. I explained that there is pretty much no such thing as an Afrikaner without slave ancestry; usually Indian or Indonesian, but sometimes African, myself being an example. I explained how my wife’s Basson Stammutter, Angela van Bengale, was an Indian slave who was manumitted and died a rich woman with several slaves of her own. In the end, the conversation went on for close on 90 minutes. We could not get enough of one another’s company.

We need to talk

I maintain that Americans with “black” skins are just that, namely Black Americans, they are not African-Americans. They have little to do with Africa other than an ancestor as far back as my Isabella van Angola. However, I was born in Africa and live on the continent of America, making me the African-American in the room. Every Black American I have ever spoken to about this has very much appreciated me making that distinction. They do not wish to be “hyphenated” based on skin colour, and I respect that. I also resent it that Liberal White Americans have sentenced my folks to death for the sins their own great-grandparents committed and which mine never did. A guilty conscience is a terrible thing.

In the above conversation lies a message for South Africans. If I as Afrikaner can have this conversation with a Black American family in the very heart of the United States, a few hundred yards from the White House, then pray tell, what makes it so difficult to have that conversation in South Africa? White and Brown/Coloured folks in SA who do not see each other as having common ancestors, need to reflect on this, preferably with the Bible and a copy of their family genealogy in their hands. They need to do this before they sentence their innocent children to a lingering isolationist death because of their prejudice, bullheaded denial of the truth, and inability to move on from an unjust past. If they do not, the world will reject them as sure as I am alive, and by now they have surely already seen what that means.

The Declaration of Independence

When we left the Museum building, the temperature outside was 38ºC— so hot and so humid that the crows were in a terrible state, and the humans not much better. I thought I should digitally immortalize a desperately distressed Washington crow that was stumbling about haphazardly on the ground. With what seemed like its last ounce of energy, it fluttered awkwardly onto the lowest branch of a tree (below). There it panted for dear life with drooping wings. So warm dat die kraaie in die koelte gaap .

So we rushed to the National Archives (below) to see the Declaration of Independence, which I regard, beyond the Bible, as being the primary document defining Western civilization — a document that guides my own thinking. It is a marvel of human expression. South Africans can surely take their lead from the famous Preamble to that key document:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

At the Waterfall

We flew from Washington to Charlotte, North Carolina, and rented a car. From Charlotte we made our way to Asheville in the Smoky Mountains (below), where we spent the night.

The following day we drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway through beautiful forests with spectacular views over the never-ending mountains trailing off to the horizon. Eventually we turned south onto a local but popular route and got to the Looking Glass Waterfall (below). Cars were parked along the road for around a kilometre and we had to walk back quite a distance for a view of the falls.

I started chatting with a gentleman roughly my own age, commenting about the falls. He asked me where I was from and I told him “Vancouver, Canada”. He then asked about my accent and I told him that I was born in South Africa. Out of the blue he stated, “I’m very unhappy about the way White farmers are being murdered in South Africa. That is just plain terrible and we hear nothing about that on our TV. But, then again, I gave up on our US News Media years ago.”

So, is the truth getting to Americans?

If a single gentleman at a waterfall in North Carolina is anything to go by, then “Yes, but painfully slowly“, and distinctly DESPITE their Formal News Media.

The Western Cape Option

Tags

, , ,

— On Sunday 26 May 2019 I did an interview with WeThePeopleRadio about the South African Election and what it reveals about the Western Cape. The link to the recording is HERE. Just move the player to 50 minutes and 51 seconds to get to the start of my roughly hour long segment.

I discussed some of the options for the REAL RAINBOW NATION of South Africa, the community of Brown and White people of the Western Cape and Northern Cape who share a common ancestry and who have walked a joint path for some 367 years through history. They were split by several events in history, including the British playing them off against each other and the stupid policy of apartheid, but they obviously have a common future. Since the ANC government denies them a plausible future, they have to start thinking clearly about their joint road ahead as Westerners with a joint culture that transcends skin colour, language, and religion.

I was born in “The Kolonie” and, beyond a host of Dutch, French, Danish and Germans, I count among my ancestors slaves from India, Indonesia and Africa, as well as at least one Khoi ancestor: Eva Krotoa. My DNA confirms my mixed, European, Indonesian, Indian, and African background.

Yet the apartheid system decided I was white and other folks with the same heritage were “Coloured”. This was the real hurt of that system. In South Africa, those distinctions have become transparent and irritating and folks realize the truth lies not in how the skin reflects light, but in where the heart is. It has nothing to do with skin colour, or language, or religion. I feel it is time for all who reject the Africanist Ba’Ntu-only philosophy of the ANC to stand together and realize they have a joint future. They are a nation built over 367 years and are quite distinct from the Ba’Ntu people of South Africa with whom they have practically zero in common.

I well remember Roos, the 4 foot 6 inch little Khoi-San woman who helped my Aunt around the house at Kendrew outside Graaff-Reinet in 1976. I asked her what she thought of the Soweto Riots which were taking place at the time, and her answer with big round eyes was (in Afrikaans):

Oh my Lord, sir!  The k*****s are coming. They are going to kill us all!

Roos spoke the truth just as most “Coloured” people know that truth today. When the ANC is finished with those who still cling to it, it will spit them out and stomp on them…and their children will curse them. And, they know that only too well.

The South African Impact on the US

Tags

, , , ,

The Effect of South Africa on the United States

— Americans are constantly amazed when I clarify for them the impact that South Africa has had on their country and the role it is playing in the demise of the institutions and views that made America great in the first place. Examples include the obsession of Former President Obama with South Africa. He made that quite clear on record. His admiration for the Communist leader of the ANC, Nelson Mandela, is well-known. Obama even appointed Mandela’s ghost writer to his administration. More recently, the removal of statues was imported from South Africa. The US Democratic Party now sounds very much like South Africa’s ANC, which is 100% focused on stealing from citizens with white skins all that they possibly can. Its equivalent in the United States at this point is the combination of Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, the Far Left of the Democratic Party and the overall drive to denigrate the white male and bar him from anything they possibly can. I keep telling Americans that, if they wanted to see their future, all they need to do is pay about $1500 for a flight to South Africa. A more affordable alternative may be to just follow this Blog.

But How Deep is the penetration?

If one had to summarise President Trump’s single most important action in the first two years of his presidency, it would be around the Supreme Court (above). His key long-term achievement is not the drastically improved economy; it is in fact the appointment of Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. He may even get further shots at appointing more Supreme Court Justices. This is likely the greatest fear of the grey-beards in the Democratic Party, because it would affect important challenges to the Constitution for decades to come and could swing some other very important cases. Who knows, it might even affect the fate of Roe v. Wade, which would drive Democrats into a frenzy. It could effectively negate the stranglehold the Democratic Party has on the exceedingly liberal Ninth Circuit Court that keeps stopping President Trump at every possible turn.

It therefore behooves us to ask what the ranking Liberal Supreme Court Justice thinks. She mans the “Liberal wall” against president Trump in the Supreme Court. And, it is not as though we have to speculate. The lady in question, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (below), has made her views entirely clear on two counts:

  • But we also know a second thing: She prefers the South African Constitution over the American one, which she regards as “old”. See more below.

What was that again about the influence of South Africa in the United States?– no influence, eh? Yeah right!

Folks have already seen how sickeningly the South African government’s disregard for proper process in Law has found its way into the Democratic Party’s effort at undoing president Trump. If it is unclear, then wake up and read THIS article.

With the “New South Africa” influence embedded even in the US Supreme Court it is time for Americans to SIT UP AND LISTEN. It should also make it entirely clear to Americans why they need a president capable of saving America from the insanity that has become embedded into their national woodwork.

Ginsburg on the South African Constitution

While on a visit to Egypt, Ginsburg— never shy with her prejudices—offered the following jewel of wisdom to the Egyptians seeking to formulate a new post-Muslim Brotherhood constitution. She was addressing the matter of which constitution the Egyptians should model theirs on. In the process she stated that she would not base it on the US Constitution. Instead she actually suggested that the South African Constitution is the one the Egyptians should consider; this when more than a million white South Africans have left the country because the government of the country makes fulltime war on them under that constitution. Literally thousands of white farmers have now been killed under that constitution and a woman sentenced to three years in jail for using the South African equivalent of the N-word. I, and many tens of thousands of White South Africans, have moved to Canada because she is 100% wrong. She calls the South African Constitution a “Great Piece of Work”. If this is the level of insight and analytrical ability she has, then she has overstayed her free parking on the US Constitution.

However, much worse: If these are her convictions, and the result in South Africa is anything to go by, then millions of Americans are in desperate danger and are likely completely unaware of it. The Laws enacted under that South African Constitution have chased around one fifth of the White population, the author included, out of that country in despair of any future for their children.

The CIA World Factbook states that 72.4% of the US population is white and that the total population is 329,256,465. Let’s round that to 330 million. That makes the white population around 238 million. One fifth of the White American population is around 48 million people. Where exactly would they flee to? Are folks going to ask white Americans the same infantile question as white South Africans face all the time, namely, “Why don’t you go back?“. Like the White South Africans, where exactly would 48 million Americans “go back” to? Both nations have been in their respective countries since the 1600s with no right of return to anywhere.

My position

If Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is correct about the South African Constitution, then she needs to explain the result to me. If she indeed is as intelligent as I assume her to innately be, then, as a person of some moral rectitude, she ought to take a stand against the South African government.  That government is busy urging racial attacks under that constitution and is attempting to steal the titled property of people based on skin colour.

If she thinks I’m a little vexed on this subject, then I suggest she reads THIS article by the Hoover Institution.

Born in a Crossfire Hurricane

I was born in a crossfire hurricane…

These are the opening words of the lyrics of the iconic 1968 Rolling Stones tune Jumping Jack Flash (Front man Mick Jagger above). Those not familiar with it—and I am sure there must be few in the forgotten corners of the planet—will recognise it by clicking on THIS link. I have personally played it on-stage more times than I care to confess.

I never knew that I was playing the likely future theme song of the investigation into President Trump’s collusion with Russia in cheating Hillary Clinton out of her Ordained Victory… errr… oops…sorry… I meant to say the Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election. I beg forgiveness from all Americans, because anyone forced to watch CNN at an airport over the past well-nigh 30 months would have thought the former was the true title of the investigation.

Enter “James Bond”

Most people seem to think it started with the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Prosecutor in 2017, but, in fact, this really bad B-movie spy story started in 2016, long before the election and as the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server conduct came to a close. It started with an FBI investigation named Crossfire Hurricane.

I think the FBI top bunch had in mind something more like the James Bond theme, but, in their urge to exonerate Hillary Clinton and implicate the future president, they seemed to forget that Trump might win. In the end, when they failed, they put into effect Plan B, which was to destroy the presidency of the newly elected Donald Trump. For this they had to have a Special Prosecutor. And the rest is now history.

But, wait, the James Bond theme tune may yet be relevant, because it turns out Hillary’s team paid for a salacious report, composed of complete rubbish, and put together by…. wait for it…. a British ex-spy with Russian contacts. He was Christopher Steele (below).

I guess I’m giving away my age with THIS theme tune. This has yet to be investigated for criminal conduct. It seemed much more important to the US Justice Department and FBI to investigate the properly elected President.

Well, after two years of putting North America through hell, during which time CNN turned themselves into the “Bile & Vomit Channel”, being thoroughly incapable of disguising even the hate in their faces, we have the answer:

THERE WAS NO COLLUSION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA.

But this is where it becomes important to read once more the actual title of the Mueller investigation: Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election. So, it was not supposed to be an investigation into whether Donald Trump is a Russian spy, as CNN would have us believe. But they were not alone. MSNBC also harped on this, and the fired Deputy-Chief of the FBI mouthed off incessantly on the subject. But, by then, he had already discredited himself as a witness, as explained by none other than Mueller.

So, where are we today?

The investigation has run its course, it has expired, and it has delivered nothing of note, except to show up various Democrat politicians as repeat liars. As to CNN, there is little that needs to be said. All intelligent people I know have deserted that channel. President Trump stands vindicated. Mueller could not find evidence sufficient to accuse the president of obstruction of justice, let alone indict him. He has left some breadcrumbs for the Democrats to keep sidetracking themselves with. The whole thing has been a thinly disguised effort to discredit the Trump presidency against the backdrop of his opponent securing resources from Russia for her campaign. Guess where the REAL collusion is. The Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, can certainly attempt to use the report to try to impeach Pres. Trump based on information insufficient to charge him with obstruction, but the Republicans who control Senate will not back that effort. Impeachment is not a legal process; it is a political process. I believe all Republicans are hoping the Democrats will try, because it will distract them and most certainly will cost them the next election. It backfired on the Republicans when they tried it with Clinton. It will backfire on the Democrats.

What do the Stones tell us about this?

So what is the state of the fictitious person who was born in the crossfire hurricane? Well, we can ask lead singer of the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger:

I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled

How immensely appropriate! Indeed, the collusion investigation is dead. To the extent that this investigation still has any feet, they are certainly bleeding.

Who is Charlie?

Of course, I’m wondering whether ex-FBI chief James Comey styles himself in the role of frontman Mick Jagger, working up the crowd of 1,500,000 people on Copacabana Beach in the opening link. Comey has tried to work up 150 million people. But the most important question is, who is in the role of Charlie Watts, the drummer. He is the one providing the background beat of the group; the one who sets the timing – the man WHO CONTROLLED this entire edifice of lies and collusion deception. Attorney-General  William Barr now has to find “Charlie”.

Only crumbs remain

The Democratic Party people appear to be on their hands and knees scurrying around like cockroaches when the lights go on, looking for breadcrumbs from the report that will allow them to delude themselves further. Indeed the lyrics of the song say:

I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread.

What they really should worry about, is the first line of the last verse:

I was crowned with a spike right through my head.

Do I need to remind the reader that it was not I who decided to launch an investigation into a US presidential candidate using already discredited Russian information and call it Crossfire Hurricane.  I just comment on this stuff because (1) I know the song ; (2) I know that Communist places love putting the word “Democratic” in their name to pretend to be something they are not; and (3) President Trump is the first international leader that has realised that something is wrong in South Africa. So, he gets my support.

As to the US Democrats, after this, they should never ever again attempt to lecture me on Democracy, because they clearly cannot handle it. Perhaps they should rename themselves. Oh wait, daddy never taught them how to lose like a man.

Anyway, I never really was a Stones fan.
