A few days ago climategate broke, the biggest scam and fraud of our time but no words from Obama, the so called transparent president of the USA and as was also said some time ago by other media the “president of the world”. Unfortunately that is really the truth, he might not be president of the world but unless he says something about climategate we will know for sure that who’s side he is on exactly. Unfortunately again we already know the answer to that as well.
Obama chose John holdren as his science Czar. John Holdren has his foot deep entrenched in the climategate scandal as we also wrote earlierJohn Holdren contributed to “inconvenient truth” and Climategate
So how is Obama directly involved in Climategate? You see being the science Czar John Holdren advises Obama about global warming. He is the voice of science to Obama. So all the information Obama gets from his “science adviser” could be a total scam as well, It must be a embarrassing fact to wake up to seeing the person you as president of the USA employed as the head and voice of science for the entire USA is a FRAUD.
The only reason Obama does not say a thing about this is because he must be speechless.What is worrying actually is the fact that Obama is so “speechless” about the situation and if he does not say anything about this we can all assume that Obama is not only part of this climategate but stands behind and wants to use it to accomplish his goals.
The European Commission decided today that they will allow GM food. The maize MIR604 received approval from the European Food Safety Authority.
The European Commission decided, on 30 November, to authorise genetically modified (GM) maize MIR604, from Syngenta Seeds S.A.S., for food and feed uses and import and processing. The MIR604 maize received a positive safety assessment from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). As member states failed to return a qualified majority decision for or against this authorisation in the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health and then at the 20 November Agriculture Council, the dossier was sent back to the Commission for adoption. The authorisation is valid for ten years, and any products produced from MIR604 maize will be subject to the EU’s labelling and traceability rules.
A new rumor about a new Iphone is spreading after the model was picked up on application logs of Iphone developer Pandav. On the application called iBart the company picked up "iPhone 3.1" on the logs but the phone is not available yet.
According to MacRumors "Apple began testing the iPhone 3GS (iPhone2,1) back in October of 2008 about 8 months ahead of its launch. At the time, the usage was similarly focused in the San Francisco Bay Area where Apple is located. This tells us that it’s quite possible we may see the arrival of the next iPhone mid next year."
So far it is speculated that the next gen iPhone will have a multicore processor, RFID support, camera and the usual extras.
The FF + also expressed shock at the statement made by Kgalema Motlanthe when he basically said that the farmers were responsible for the murders and not the criminals.
Statement by the FF+ :
“Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe is looking for a justification for farm murders. No murder can ever be justified.” This was the reaction of Mr. Werner Weber, the FF Plus’ spokesperson on Agriculture and Land Affairs and former chairperson of Action Stop Farm Attacks.
According to media reports Motlanthe said that foreigners who work for farmers are not paid enough by the farmers and therefore commit murder.
According to Mr. Weber there may be a number of these cases, but it is highly unusual. Deputy President Motlanthe dares not make generalisations about a very serious issue such as this so easily and should rather mention specific examples. Research has proven that in the majority of cases of farm murders, the murderer(s) and victim(s) did not know each other at the time of a farm attack and that very little or nothing at all was stolen.
Motlanthe’s comments creates the impression that he is indeed on the side of the farm murderers who perpetrate these criminal attacks and does not have any understanding for farmers.
“Deputy President Motlanthe is cautioned to show more discretion in his public comments, especially concerning such a highly emotional issue such as farm murders”, Weber added. Mr. Weber and his family have been victims of a farm attack.
It seems that the stupidity of the South African police is ski rocketing to a new level. I think in the bid to get more police officers they will take just anyone if they are trained properly or not.
A journalist from the Beeld newspaper reported of a woman, Ms. Wilma Coetzer (23) was on her way home with her mother and a friends daughter 12 years old when they where attacked by two black men.
Around 18:00 they past the Dutch Reformed Church in Cullinan street on their way home from shopping on Friday, when out of the blue they where attacked. Wilma says she felt a tug on her handbag when she turned she was hit in the face with a blunt object. She immediately started shouting for the young girl to run.
One of the men gave chase after the girl but soon gave up when she ran into a security complex where Ms. Coutzer works. Wilma did not for a moment stop fighting because she new they would easily overpower her as soon as she would be in the alley, so they repeatedly hit her over the head.
The security came from the security complex and apprehended the two attackers and handed them over to the police.
Wilma was taken to the hospital for treatment, the police said she can come in the next day for a statement.
You would think that is a happy ending, the victims was okay, the criminals apprehended and they can go home safely. But when they got home they where in for a surprise because for some reason the police reservist wanted her and the little girl to identify the ‘accused’ immediately and brought him to her home.
Firstly the police took one of the men to the young girls flat where she lives. The young girl was traumatized when she saw the guy who attacked them standing right there, at the door, where she lives. She told Wilma’s mother Ria Coutzer ‘Auntie, I am scared, he knows where I live now’
Then later 22:45 Wilma received a call from the police saying that she should go outside. She and her mother went and found the a police van outside their house the same two officers from earlier that day. They then informed Wilma, 23 year old white woman, to go with them down to the police station in the back of the van. If that is not horrifying enough the two men who attacked her earlier was in the back of the very same van they have told her to climb into. When her mother confronted the officer asking him how dare they endanger her daughter in such a manner the reply was ‘Don’t worry, they do not want to harm you’
Mrs Coetzer drove her daughter to the police station in her own car. Once at the police station they gave a statement, received a case number and then she was given the telephone number of the police detective who was supposed to investigate the case.
The number however remained unanswered during the week according to Beeld reporter who tried to call for conformation.
The Provincial Police spokesman captain Joseph Hlatwayo he did not know of the incident and would follow up but we all know we won’t here anything further. Seeing as there is a gag order on all police stations that prohibits them from reporting on crime unless it’s positive to protect South Africa’s image for 2010 world cup.
So we sit with this dilemma, I can go on and on about cases of police negligence and pure stupidity. How can police think it is okay to take a suspect in a attack, to a victims home? And then to tell a 23 year old woman to climb in the back of the police van with her attackers. This is deeply troubling that the people out there suppose to protect us do not care one bit what happens to us.
One of the most popular torrent tracking sites on the internet and also one of the oldest yesterday announced and removed most of their torrents in reponse to a copyright infringement lawsuit.
BREIN sued Mininova earlier this year and was ordered later on to remove any infringing links and content to prevent further torrent movement. Mininova is still considering if they should appeal the ruling but in the meantime they have removed most torrents.
More than 200 pesticides and insecticides were found on a farms in Limpopo, some of those are banned in South Africa.
Bellow is a statement by the DA
In reply to a written question to the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries whether her Department has a programme to collect undesirable insecticides and pesticides from farms, Minister Tina Joemat-Petterson acknowledged that her department did not have such a programme, but she said the Department of Water and Environmental Affairs was running such a programme under the banner of Africa Stockpile Programme (ASP). However, according to statistics supplied by the Minister it is clear that the ASP can hardly be described as a successful operation.
Firstly, the programme was only operational in Limpopo and not in any of the other provinces. Secondly, the programme is not currently in operation and appears to have ended in the 2007/8 financial year.
Judging by the figures which were supplied for the one year in which the programme was operational (2007/8, in respect of Limpopo) one must deduce that large quantities of hazardous insecticides and pesticides are still kept on farms throughout the country. In 2007/8 a total of 45 705 litres and 78 670 kilograms of pesticides and undesirable chemicals was collected and removed from farms in Limpopo alone, representing more than 200 different commercial names. (The full reply, including the names of undesirable products and banned and restricted substances, follows below).
The Minister indicated that this programme would also be rolled out to other provinces “in the near future” and that all undesirable insecticides and pesticides “will be removed once all the logistical and legal processes have been sorted”.
We call on the Minister of Agriculture to ensure, together with the Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs, that the programme be speeded up and rolled out in all provinces as a matter of urgency and to give the absolute assurance that all substances will be disposed of in a controlled, safe and environment-friendly way.
Hopefully none of these undesirable substances are being used on farms any longer, but their continued storage, and possible self-disposal, in uncontrolled circumstances pose a serious health risk to all farm dwellers.
We will engage the Department further in the Portfolio Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries once Parliament reconvenes in 2010 to ensure that an effective programme is put in place.

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe of South Africa recently said that farmers "exploit foreign nationals by reducing them to cheap labour" this then he said resulting in the killing and genocide (although he did not mention the genocide) of farmers in South Africa because of revenge and anger.
This blatant ignorant and uneducated lie just shows that the ANC supports the current genocide happening in South Africa, evidence makes it clear that the farmers that get murdered are mostly not by those that they employ but rather by strangers that also sometimes kill those that work for these farmers.
The farm murders are a result of the ANC’s hatred against white people and because of leaders in the ANC spewing out inflammatory speech. Most of these farm murders are done out of nothing but hatred towards the white population of South Africa.
The DA also made a statement about his idiotic statement:
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe has recently alleged that farmers “exploit foreign nationals by reducing them to cheap labour” resulting in farmers being killed out of anger and revenge. This statement is profoundly misguided and ignores the hard facts surrounding this sensitive issue.
The facts are that more than 1600 farmers have been murdered since the ANC came into power – a trend that is still continuing and escalating. Very few, if any, of these murders were the result of foreigners employed on farms, indeed there is a strong case to be made that a significant number are the consequence of inflammatory speech by political leaders. Certainly a great many are the consequence of nothing more than hate, as the gruesome circumstances surrounding many farmer murders attests to.
Crime is a problem facing all South Africans and violent crime in particular is often defined by acts which defy any explanation other than a deep seated hatred for a person’s fellow citizen. It is true that a tiny minority of farmers do mistreat those people in their employ. These farmers are a disgrace and their actions should be condemned in no uncertain terms. But the vast majority of farmers are committed first and foremost to South Africa and helping grow this important part of our economy. To paint all farmers with the same brush is fuel on a fire than needs to be clamed, not encouraged. It is short-sighted for the Deputy President not to be more particular.
His failure to do so suggests that the ANC government is trying to shift the focus away from its inability and unwillingness to handle and control the illegal influx of people from Zimbabwe and other neighbouring countries and violent xenophobic attacks.
Farmers are also monitored for fair labour practice by the Department of Labour and inspection results show that the agricultural sector is performing better than other sectors of the economy.
The Deputy President should avail himself of the facts before making unfounded allegations like this against farmers.
The DA will pursue these allegations further by asking the Deputy President to substantiate this in parliament or to apologise to farmers for these inflammatory remarks

A girl from Johannesburg, South Africa got her legs amputated by accident when she went to hospital for burning her hands the Health department claims. Thembisa Kometsi who now has no legs is recovering in hospital. This shows the utter negligence in South African hospitals.
People might have to think twice if they get hurt during the soccer world cup to go to a hospital. This incident happened at Charlotte Maxeke Academic hospital.

Do you see something wrong here?
The name of the song is just dumb looking but Ke$ha is not trying to be a Celine Dion or something. Her music is purely punk, dance, rap, pop and whatever else has a beat. Kesha Sebert aka Ke$ha her stage name looks rather new to the music world but actually have been part of a number one song already, Right Round by Flo Rida, who shot to number one and then came Tik Tok by Ke$ha.
Some has said her song style and music video choice compared to that of a Madonna and Beastie Boys. Ke$ha looks wild and her songs suits the image.
Here is her newest release Blah Blah Blah
Ke$ha – Blah Blah Blah (New Full Song HQ Kesha)
For those still curious has what has made her famous (for now) here is the two music video’s that did it. Firstly Right Round Flo Rida feat. Ke$ha and second is Tik Tok Ke$ha’s solo.
