The Boston Blasts, a preliminary report
16th of April 2013
Interesting, isn't it?
16th of April 2013 some bombs are exploded by terrorists in Boston killing 3 innocent civilian people and injuring about a 100.
It is on every television in the world and a massive outcry rises from all over the world.
Almost exactly 30 years ago on the 20th of May 1983 a bomb exploded in Church Street in Pretoria, planted by the Marxist ANC terrorists, killing 19 innocent civilian people and injuring 217.
The bombs were authorized by Communist scum Oliver Tambo and Joe Slovo and had the blessing of Nelson Mandela himself.
There were applause and cheers of joy and support from all around the world for the ANC.
Sorry but the hypocrisy is sickening.
At first in this report it states that the FBI and other agencies have no clue to who planted the bombs, but they are suspecting “Rightwingers” or “Islamists”.
FBI suspects “Rightwing or Islamists”
Then later it came out they were looking for a “Dark skinned or Black Male” Boston Marathon Bombing: Hunt for ‘Dark-Skinned or Black Male’ and Yellow Van
Hey? I tell you, the Leftist media, just cannot let any opportunity go by to smear the Right.

Two years ago, in full view of television cameras, Andries Tatane a Ficksburg protester, was kicked, beaten with a police baton and shot twice in the chest with rubber bullets after which he collapsed and died.
The seven policemen accused of his murder were all acquitted last month, simply because the prosecution bungled the case.
Where is the justice for his family and his wife Rose?
Just before Tatane’s death, police on a hunt for an escaped prisoner, shot and killed a 15yo boy called Kwasi Ndlovu and planted a gun on him. Ndlovu never had a gun
On 16th of August 2012 SA police trapped and slaughtered 34 miners at the Lonmin Marikanamine.
About two month ago nine police officers were charged after dragging a Mozambican taxi driver Mido Macia behind a police van and he later died of his injuries.
South African police suspended over death of man 'dragged behind van'
These four incidents are just the tips of a massive “excessive force” iceberg of what the SAPS has degenerated into.
The annual report of Amnesty international documented allegations against the SA police of excessive force, torture, rape and "extrajudicial executions". It said the IPID received 720 new cases for investigation of suspicious deaths in custody or in other policing contexts from April 2011 to March 2012.
About 932 people died in police custody in South Africa in 2011-12, a report by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) revealed. Source: Over 900 die in South African police custody
Dragging people behind cars or alongside them seems to be the SAPS’s favourite trick. Weeks after Mido Macia’s death more incidents of cops dragging people with vehicles emerged.
In their off time, our criminal police rob Chinese owned businesses…in police uniform and use police cars as getaway vehicles Police duo linked to robbery
Or they go out and rape members of the public as this senior police officer has done. Senior Superintendent Mahlatse Thobakgale was found guilty of three counts of rape, one of pointing a firearm and one of negligent discharge of a firearmRapist Freestate cop jailed for 18 years
Or this one where a police reservist raped a member of the public and the police captain covered for him. Thankfully the police captain was fired. Captain axed for inaction over rape cop
And when the cops are not raping women, they torture people like these six awaiting trial prisoners who are now suing the Police Minister. ‘Police attached wires to my penis’
Charges include being hung upside down in broad daylight from a first-floor balcony of the Bloemfontein Tourist Centre (BTC), electric shock torture, suffocation with pepper-spray filled plastic bags, head-bashing, assaults and beatings.
William Dube described being cuffed to a chair in an unmarked suite of the tourism centre offices, wires attached to his penis, and shocked. “It was very, very painful. I even wet myself... They covered my head with a plastic bag, filled it with pepper spray and sealed it with duct tape.”
Two weeks later he was taken to the centre for a second round where ten police officers shocked him repeatedly for almost four hours in front of a woman officer.
Or in their off duty time these cowardly creatures go about hitting and kicking women from behind as can be seen in this shocking report and video. Note how two on-duty policemen do not arrest him and do not help the woman Probe after cop assault on woman
In the next example of police brutality in South Africa, two coloured guys found an intruder in their yard at 01h00 in the morning (probably a policeman) and chased him off. Two days later, the police picked them up, handcuffed them and drove them to the police station where they were whipped with sjamboks, suffocated with a plastic bag, threatened that they would be framed with drugs and driven back home. No charges were laid against them. ‘Officers whipped us with sjamboks’
What they also do, is to raid drug dealer’s homes and then sell the drugs on the side. Five cops in Eastern Cape arrested for drug dealing
To crown it all…40% of SA cops do not have a driver’s license
That’s right…They are driving around without licenses endangering the lives of the public.
These were just some example of recent daily reports that made it into the MSM headlines. Can you imagine the thousands of cases that never make it into the media?
Now if the police themselves are heavy criminals, then how do they foresee to ever make a dent in the crime in the country? Police are civil servants.
They ultimately answer to us, who pay their salaries. They are not a law unto themselves. Therefore we need to hold them accountable and responsible for their criminality. And that goes for Police Commissioner Phiyega and Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa as well.
SA-CAR "Exchange of Diplomatic Notes" shows President Jacob Zuma misled Parliament
The fact is that there was never a second Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on defence cooperation between South Africa and the CAR.
There was only an "Exchange of Diplomatic Notes", between South Africa and the CAR, signed on 31 December 2012, recording certain "understandings" aimed at ensuring South Africa played a more meaningful role in the CAR.
The diplomatic notes appear to amount to a new agreement which differs substantially from the original MoU signed between South Africa and the CAR in 2007.
The diplomatic notes provide for the "reinforcement of the South African Contingent for self-defence, protection of property and saving of human lives in Bangui".
The expanded scope of cooperation to include - self-defence, protection of property and saving of human lives - was never conveyed to Parliament.
This clearly shows that President Jacob Zuma misled Parliament on the deployment of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) in the CAR.

Minister of Basic Education:
The question reads as follows: State whether the following event is certain, most likely or impossible: Christmas day is on December 25 in South Africa.
No wonder education in South Africa has gone down the tubes..........Fire the idiot.....
PRESIDENT ZUMA'S COMMENTS REGARDING THE IMPACT OF APARTHEID ON SOUTH AFRICA'S PRESENT PROBLEMS
In comments that he made to mark the 20th anniversary of Chris Hani's assassination, President Zuma alluded to the recent debate regarding the impact of apartheid on the current problems confronting South Africa.
He said that "to suggest we cannot blame apartheid for what is happening in our country now, I think is a mistake, to say the least. We don't need to indicate what it is apartheid did. The fact that the country is two in one - you go to any city, there is a beautiful part and squatters on the other side - this is not the making of democracy and we can't stop blaming those who caused it."
Jacob Zuma's "Nkandla" in the back ground and a simple mud house in the foreground.
"While wanting to see change happening fast in every corner of the country, we are under no illusion that South Africa will automatically and comprehensively change in only 20 years. That is impossible. The legacy of apartheid runs too deep and too far back for the democratic administration to reverse it in so short a period."
President Zuma's remarks were a repetition of what has become a central refrain in ANC communication: that the legacy of the past - i.e. apartheid or "colonialism of a special kind" - is responsible for the triple crisis of inequality, unemployment and poverty. The remarks are usually accompanied by simplistic comparisons between whites who live in the "beautiful part" and blacks who live "on the other side."
We are all the products of our past - and there can be no doubt that apartheid created serious distortions in the normal development process that black South Africans would otherwise have experienced. However, the roots of inequality and poverty are far more complex than that. They include, in particular, lack of access to decent education, employment and effective government services - all factors that have been within the sphere of government policy since 1994.
The inequality that characterised our society in 1994 may certainly be ascribed to the complex legacies of the past. However, the fact that, 19 years later, we are an even more unequal society is the consequence of the failure of government policy. Unacceptable levels of inequality have their roots - among other things - in:
- the dismal performance of our education system caused overwhelmingly by government mismanagement and the depredations of SADTU;
- the fact that almost 40% of black South Africans are unemployed - primarily as a result of rigid labour policies; policies and attitudes that discourage foreign and domestic investment and the refusal of COSATU to countenance competition in freer labour markets;
- the inability of government to deliver decent services - which is attested to by service delivery protests throughout the country almost on a daily basis; and
- the implementation of inappropriate policies to promote equality - which have greatly benefited the top 10% of the black population - but which have done nothing for the bottom 60%.
Attempts to blame these failures on "apartheid" will simply divert government and public attention from the urgent need to implement the kind of realistic solutions called for in the National Development Plan. They also serve intentionally or unintentionally to stir up racial animosities that we simply cannot afford. When President Zuma says that "we cannot stop blaming those who caused it", he is playing the very dangerous game of making whites the racial scapegoats for the manifest failures of his own government.
The reality is that many of the beautiful parts to which President Zuma refers are now increasingly inhabited by the emerging black elite and middle class. In 1995 whites accounted for 69% of those in the top earnings decile. By 2007 their share had diminished to 43%. By now it will be even smaller. The nature of the squatter camps is also changing: several are now inhabited by impoverished whites. The country may be "two in one" as President Zuma observes but they can no longer be simplistically characterised as 'rich white' and 'poor black'.
Clearly we South Africans need to engage one another in frank discussions about the legacy of the past, the challenges of the present and our vision for the future.
The ANC's policy has led to an increase in the poor White problem
The African National Congress (ANC) has assisted in ushering in a new democratic dispensation, but has failed dismally to create a non-racial and equal opportunity society.
Whilst the ANC had a moral and constitutional responsibility to empower the previously disadvantaged, it should not have done that at the expense of the minority groups. You don't extend your house by building new rooms while at the same time destroying the old rooms. Otherwise your house will never be fully extended. The ANC government has become a master at solving problems by creating new ones.
Badly implemented empowerment policies have led to a rapid growth in poverty amongst our white people. The poor white problem is exacerbated by the sharp rise in unemployment of white South Africans by more than 200% since 1994.
The government is very indifferent to the impoverishment of these citizens because, according to ANC thinking, they were previously advantaged.
This kind of thinking is wrong and it leads to new forms of apartheid.
South Africa's overall unemployment rate is estimated at between 28 and 40%, and is most severe among poor rural blacks. On the other hand, more than 10% of the white population lives below the poverty line. South Africa is one of the world's most inequitable countries and the income gap is widening. The triple challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment are increasing drastically while ANC leaders spend most of their time jostling for positions and accumulating personal wealth.
Way back in 2004, President Thabo Mbeki was traumatised after realising the white poverty problem. Prior to this Mbeki was not aware of the poverty amongst some of our white people and he had assumed the standard of life of white people was higher than the national average and thus every white person lives better.
Mbeki confessed to City Press (11/04/2004): "It has been quite disturbing where, for example, in Cape Town, young white women actually came to the minister and said: ‘Minister, we have to work as prostitutes because we can't maintain ourselves, we can't maintain our children, but the police harass us in the streets. Can't you please talk to the police to just leave us alone, for there's no other way to make a living?' You can see the level of poverty and desperation among whites". Unfortunately, poverty levels amongst whites have not subsided since 2004.
Had the ANC managed the economy properly, the unemployment and poverty levels amongst all our people would have been far less. Except for the services sector, the manufacturing and agriculture sectors have been declining steadily since 1994. Sadly, the South African economy still relies on its exports of raw minerals.
The exportation of raw minerals yields low financial margins and disadvantages South Africa in terms of beneficiation. This has led to unemployment, which in my own estimation is around 40% and, at the same time, 25% of the population depends solely on government grants. The ANC government failed to turn South Africa into the industrial hub of the whole African continent by reviving the manufacturing sector and creating millions of jobs.
South Africa has now become a net importer of food because agricultural production has also decreased under the ANC's government. Actually, this country needs an Agricultural Revolution before an Industrial Revolution. Personally, I would like to see several interventions being implemented concurrently. Be that as it may be, it is important to note that East Asian economic development was preceded by the freeing up of agriculture. Once productivity gains and food security were achieved, Asian countries moved to manufacturing.
This was the same trajectory in Europe where the Agricultural Revolution laid the base for the Industrial Revolution. Something good about agriculture is that, unlike manufacturing, it does not necessarily require huge investments in technology. Agriculture is also not capital intensive and thus it creates jobs. As long as the ANC is still in power it would be almost impossible to turn around the agriculture sector.
Through the process of land restitution, land that has been given to the ‘new owners' is largely redundant because the government didn't come up with any local economic development model that would make the acquired land productive. At the beginning of this year, the government regulated an exorbitant basic salary level for farm workers. This will force most farmers out of business and, by the end of this year, more than 2000 farm workers will be retrenched and will swell the ranks of those who live under extreme poverty.
The pre-campaign for the 2014 general elections is currently underway. There are more than 20 political parties registered with the Independent Electoral Commission in South Africa, but truly speaking, there are only two bulls in the kraal, the ANC and the Democratic Alliance (DA).
President Jacob Zuma's dancing skills and Cyril Ramaphosa's charm will not eradicate the escalating poverty. The DA has published a well researched 8% Growth Plan which has huge potential to reduce poverty across all the races.
The DA has a proven track record of good governance and service delivery as demonstrated in the Western Cape Province and municipalities under its control. Be that as it may, the DA can only serve and save South Africa if voters put them into power through the majority of their votes. Blind loyalty to the ANC, perpetual patience, and historical sentiments will give the ANC further license to dispense patronage to its few powerful elites while the majority of our people are swamped by poverty.
