South Africa resisted until the last moment to give the Dalai Lama a visa, now they are trying to fool everyone into thinking and by saying they were going to give him a visa. Yeah right, wait till he cant come anymore then issue the visa. Some intelligence. The government claims that they were “busy” with his visa and that they did not deny his visa. All of a sudden they were busy? When were they planning on giving him his visa, at the last minute?
This angered everyone, especially the Desmond Tutu, Lama was on his way to Tutu’s birthday bash. Tutu got so angry he said that the ANC government misrepresents us and that “We will pray for the downfall of a government that misrepresents us.
Amazon in the United Kingdom is down, not only for those browsing in the UK but from any location. The website seems to be under a DDoS attack.
Amazon in the United Kingdom is down, not only for those browsing in the UK but from any location. The website seems to be under a DDoS attack. We have no information if Anonymous is responsible but they might be behind it.
At this point no one knows. Anonymous took revenge last week against sites that kicked Wikileaks from using certain providers of services or providers that refused Wikileaks access to their services and payment systems. Visa, Mastercard, Paypal and a few others got attacked.
It was said that Amazon was also a target and a lot of people believed that Anonymous failed in taking down Amazon but they never did try to take down Amazon.com according to insiders and a press release from a Twitter account that appeared to be connected to Anonymous.
So, is Anonymous behind what looks like an attack on Amazon.co.uk?
Update: Amazon.de in Germany is down as well.
Update: Amazon.fr in France is down.
Update: Amazon.it is down, no Amazon for Italy tonight.
Update: Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.it and the rest are back online.
Update: Thus far Anonymous or those that appear to be part of Anonymous says they are not behind the attacks or downtime of the Amazon servers.
Update: It was not Anonymous, It was not attacks either it was Amazon’s hardware that malfunctioned.
Congressman Ron Paul addressed the house about Wikileaks.
Congressman Ron Paul addressed the house about Wikileaks. He stated that the attack on Julian Assange is like killing the messenger for bringing bad news and gave them nine questions to consider:
Number 1: Do the America People deserve know the truth regarding the ongoing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen?
Number 2: Could a larger question be how can an army private access so much secret information?
Number 3: Why is the hostility directed at Assange, the publisher, and not at our governments failure to protect classified information?
Number 4: Are we getting our moneys worth of the 80 Billion dollars per year spent on intelligence gathering?
Number 5: Which has resulted in the greatest number of deaths: lying us into war or Wikileaks revelations or the release of the Pentagon Papers?
Number 6: If Assange can be convicted of a crime for publishing information that he did not steal, what does this say about the future of the first amendment and the independence of the internet?
Number 7: Could it be that the real reason for the near universal attacks on Wikileaks is more about secretly maintaining a seriously flawed foreign policy of empire than it is about national security?
Number 8: Is there not a huge difference between releasing secret information to help the enemy in a time of declared war, which is treason, and the releasing of information to expose our government lies that promote secret wars, death and corruption?
Number 9: Was it not once considered patriotic to stand up to our government when it is wrong?
Thomas Jefferson had it right when he advised ‘Let the eyes of vigilance never be closed’
“Some Questions To Consider” Ron Paul Defends WikiLeaks “Killing The Messenger For Bad News”
Sarah Palin that earlier said Julian Assange is "un-American" had her site hacked or DDoS attacked by operation payback. SarahPAC.com is now totally offline, the webmasters are aware
Sarah Palin that earlier said Julian Assange is “un-American” had her site hacked or DDoS attacked by operation payback. SarahPAC.com is now totally offline, the webmasters are aware of this but theres not much they can do about it.
SarahPAC.com’s hack comes after Mastercard.com and Paypal.com and Twitter may follow soon by the looks of things. “operation payback” had their twitter account suspended earlier.
Sarah Palin also said that Juliun Assange should be “hunted down like Al-Qaeda”.
The places we trust with our money is showing some serious flaws. Paypal just released the funds of Juliun Assange’s account but said they will not enable the account again.
The places we trust with our money is showing some serious flaws. Paypal just released the funds of Juliun Assange’s account but said they will not enable the account again.
This comes after the internet fought back against Paypal with a massive DDoS attack that brought the site to a standstill. Although denial from most of the companies that stored money for Wikileaks , the US government involvement in the shutting down of his accounts it still remain obvious.
Paypal however is now singing almost the same song that Juliun Assange’s previous bank sang, they claim that they “reviewed” their policies regarding Wikileaks because of the US government saying Wikileaks might be in possession of documents that is in violation of US law.
“PayPal was not contacted by any government organization in the U.S. or abroad. We restricted the account based on our Acceptable Use Policy review,” writes PayPal’s General Counsel John Muller.
The Democratic Alliance "deplores the deeply racialist comments" by Steve Hofmeyr the party said in a statement.
The Democratic Alliance “deplores the deeply racialist comments” by Steve Hofmeyr the party said in a statement.
The DA is specifically talking about the part where Hofmeyr spoke about the “Suck up the propaganda of entitlement”.
The DA said in their statement “Hofmeyr’s statement that black South Africans “suck up the propaganda of entitlement” in order to “justify their brutality” is profoundly repugnant. It demonstrates deep-seated prejudiced views that are completely inconsistent with the values that inform our constitutional state, it lowers the standard of constructive political and social debate, and it sets back efforts to build a truly nonracial, compassionate South African society.”
“Regrettably, this statement shows there are still South Africans who are severely detached from the values of modern South African society, and who hold prejudicial views about their fellow citizens. Every South African who is committed to building a compassionate society should reject Hofmeyr’s comments. They are more reminiscent of a bygone era of racial domination under Apartheid than the kind of conversation one expects to hear in a multiracial democracy in 2010.”
NASA has no explanation or announcements on what this could be so we can only guess that this is another planet moving past the SOHO imagery. The question is what planet could this be?
NASA has no explanation or announcements on what this could be so we can only guess that this is another planet moving past the SOHO imagery. The question is what planet could this be? Is it a astroid, Venus or Mercury maybe?
Something did move past the sun, people online believe it could everything from the “nibiru” / planet x theory to a camera anomaly but no one has come out with an official answer yet.
That planet scientists talked about a few days ago, throwing ice bullets and causing chaos on earth, maybe he came for a visit.
The imagery is from 2010/12/06
What could this be?
Update: You might want to look at around 10 second into the video, it happens fast because the video is actually in fast forward mode,not real time. You can see the “object” coming in from the right side at around 10 or 11 seconds into the video.
Update: Could it be our moon?
Earlier this year NASA posted a few pictures and said the following:
This was a first for SDO and it was visually engaging too. On October 7, 2010, SDO observed its first lunar transit when the new Moon passed directly between the spacecraft (in its geosynchronous orbit) and the Sun. With SDO watching the Sun in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light, the dark Moon created a partial eclipse of the Sun.
These images, while unusual and cool to see, have practical value to the SDO science team. Karel Schrijver of Lockheed-Martin’s Solar and Astrophysics Lab explains: “The very sharp edge of the lunar limb allows us to measure the in-orbit characteristics of the telescope e.g., light diffraction on optics and filter support grids. Once these are characterized, we can use that information to correct our data for instrumental effects and sharpen up the images to even more detail.”
The images below show both a full disk version and a close-up of the event.
Update: The moon did not pass between the earth and the sun as shown in the video above at that time when the video was taken
Over the weekend Steve Hofmeyr stated something on his Facebook page that is on the mind of many South Africans, especially white South Africans.
Over the weekend Steve Hofmeyr stated something on his Facebook page that is on the mind of many South Africans, especially white South Africans. Its the matter of the entitlement that is ingrained into South African black population from a young age. From politicians to the street cleaner that see the white man in his nice house, driving a car and believe with all their hearts its only because he is white that he has those things. That’s just not true.
As white people tend to generalise about blacks so does the blacks about whites. When have you heard a ANC politicians say to the people they have to pull up their socks and work hard to achieve that what was achieved by others? A very small minority of whites South Africans have what they have today because someone gave it to them. The majority have achieved all this through hard work – first in school, then university/college, then in the work place or being a entrepreneur.
Ons MOET veralgemeen. Meeste swartes wat ek ken is nie geweldadig nie, maar alle swartes wat ek ken slurp die PROPAGANDA VAN ENTITLEMENT op, presies dit wat jong moordenaars nodig het om hul brutaliteite te regverdig.
Dan kry ek die antw in die volgende berig: dat ons die swart matrieks vergewensgesind moet wees as hulle dop. Hoekom? Want niemand sal ooit skuld he aan hul eie lamsakkigheid solank hulle ander daarvoor kan blameer nie. Swartes (God weet, seker nie almal van hulle nie, maar meeste wat ek waarneem) voel geregverdig en ‘entitled’ in alles, vanaf kwotas/lae matrieksyfers tot grondregte/ brutaliteit.
Translated: We MUST generalise. Most blacks that I know is not violent , but all blacks what I know suck up the PROPAGANDA OF ENTITLEMENT up, precisely what young murders need to justify their brutality.
Then I find the answer in the following article: that we should be forgiving if they failed. (in other words they must be exonerated from failing matric) Why? Because no one will ever take responsibility for their laziness so long as others can be blamed. Blacks (God knows, probably not all of them, but most that I observed) feel justified and entitled for everything, from kwotas/low matric pass-rates to property rights/brutality.
But what is getting the whites in such a ‘knot’ is that black criminals use this thinking to justify cruelty when they commit a crime. Instead of just stealing or do whatever they do, most of the time they seek out to hurt, humiliate and torture their victims. This whole rant from Steve Hofmeyr came because of the systematic murder of the Potgieter family that lived on a farm in the Free State. The father Attie Potgieter, who was the steward of the farm, was hit over the head then stabbed. His wife Wilna and their little three year old girl was killed execution style with a bullet shot in the back of the head. If that was not bad enough the murderers left a message at the gate when they left saying – that they killed the farmer and they will be back. Just because this man was a farmer he was killed but why kill his wife and three year old? They could have just waited for him outside if they wanted to rob him, no it is obvious their intent was to murder the whole family toward what gain we can only speculate.
Ek weet nie hoe die wereld dink ons moet transformeer, intergreer en ons vooroordele moet laat vaar en oulike verdraagsame Christene moet bly terwyl SWARTES N WIT 3-JARIGE KIND IN DIE KOP KAN SKIET NIE. Jammer as ek die kleur beklemtoon, maar ek sukkel om daardie aaklige wittes op te spoor wat saans oor swartes se mure .. klim en dit aan hulle kinders doen. Ek gaan al weer uiters bitter hierdie naweek in.
I don’t know how the world thinks we must transform, integrate and let our benefits go and be cute enduring Christians stay while BLACKS SHOOT A WHITE 3-YEAR OLD CHILD IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD. Sorry if I emphasise color of race, but I am struggling finding those horrible whites that jumps over blacks walls during the night .. and do this too their children. I am again going very bitter into this weekend.
His voice joins a couple of others who have had the guts to stand up against the farm murders, one of those are Afriform who have released a statement stating that the ANC should shoulder the blame for the murders.This is not the first time Steve Hofmeyr received attention for his honest opinion. One of the first times was when he wrote a letter to the ANC youth league leader, Julius Malema, a very condemning letter, telling him exactly what Steve thinks of his ‘speeches’ and singing a song about ‘Kill the Boer’ – ‘Kill the Farmer’. Until the black population get rid of the idea they can all achieve riches of someone else’s hard work. This all will continue and the divide between black and white will only grow because the white population can only take so much before they also have nothing or leave seeking refuge where they are appreciated, leaving the masses to fend for themselves.
China back in 2006 had a big issue with Google Earth exposing key structures, buildings and other "sensitive government agency Installations" so they contacted the United States for help
China back in 2006 had a big issue with Google Earth exposing key structures, buildings and other “sensitive government agency Installations” so they contacted the United States for help on the issue.
It was revealed by a Wikileaks cable that China sought help from the United States government to lower the quality of Google Earth images over China’s military, nuclear, space and engergy installations.
China feared that the high quality imagery of Google Earth could put their country in danger, they revealed that the biggest fear was “terrorists” and wanted to “deprive the terrorists of potentially dangerous information.”
The largest forest fire in Israel’s history is still causing havoc just outside Haifa. The fire that started yesterday grew way out of control and is still going on in the dry forest.
The largest forest fire in Israel’s history is still causing havoc just outside Haifa. The fire that started yesterday grew way out of control and is still going on in the dry forest. Today NASA again took a satellite image with the Moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer on NASA’s aqua satellite. The image was captured on December 3 at 12:50pm local time.
NASA outlined the active fire areas with a red outline which can be seen on the image. The winds at time of capture was still strong, the smoke can be seen blowing to the Mediterranean ocean.
More than 7000 acres have been destroyed, more than 17000 people have been evacuated and 42 people have been killed.

The Lindley farm in the Free State today is a sad place where the reality of the ANC’s “kill the boer” song can be seen, not as a struggle song but as the sad reality of the ANC’s deep hatred against white people in South Africa, the minority being murdered and their history being wiped out.
The murder of a 3 year old, a shot in the back of her head. A innocent 3 year old’s life being shortened for no reason except hatred and propaganda by South Africa’s ruling party the ANC.
Afriforum already said that the ANC should take responsibility for this. These were boers that were butchered, descendents of the voortrekkers and arch enemies of the ruling communist ANC government. It seems like the ANC is having a covert war against the white minority.
The real story about the execution of the 3 year old is not only sad but will anger many, especially since last week the “shoot the boer” song was ruled as illegal when the ruling party went to court to sing about “killing the boer”.
A large group of black males attacked the family, now as a small news organization we are no supposed to mention colour because that somehow breaks the ethics of journalism but it also hides the fact that in South Africa there is great black on white hatred. The truth should not be blurred out for the sake of professionalism. They even left a message in Sotho saying they will be back.
The farmer’s wife and the child of just three years old were shot dead execution style. The daughter Willemientjie was taken to the back of the yard in a small shed and was shot dead there in the back of her head. She was alone with these savages that just shot her while her father was still alive just a few meters away, most probably hearing the shot go off. After that they took her dead body and dumped it on her mother that was also dead by that time in the living room.
Her father was murdered with a machete, hacked to death while supervising a farm that was not even his own.
6 Black suspects were found and one is still being searched for.
A few months ago people were shot dead in KwaZulu Natal, government revealed their anger about it and ordered swift action. They were black.
The murder of white farmers usually don’t get statements from high government officials saying how bad the situation is and that they will take action.
Afriforum said that the ANC should accept the murder of a three year old and her family because of their use of the slogan "shoot the boer" and their fight to have it legalised.<
Afriforum said that the ANC should accept the murder of a three year old and her family because of their use of the slogan “shoot the boer” and their fight to have it legalised.
The civil rights initiative AfriForum said as long as the ANC continues with its appeal case in the South Gauteng High Court to have the use of the slogan “shoot the Boer” legalised, the ANC and Julius Malema have to accept responsibility for the murders on farms, like the most recent incident where the 3 year-old Willemien Potgieter and her parents, Wilna and Attie Potgieter, had been executed in cold blood on their farm near Lindley in the Free State.
According to Kallie Kriel, CEO of AfriForum, the murder of the Potgieters make people all the more bitter because it took place in the same week during which the ANC had been trying to convince the Court that the “shoot the Boer” slogan in ANC songs is not meant literally. “People are literally being killed on farms and efforts by the ANC to justify ‘shoot the Boer’ is absurd,” Kriel added.
Kriel stated that in the light of the continuing bloodshed on farms, the ANC and Julius Malema have to do the responsible thing by putting an end for once and for all to the use of slogans that propagate violence, and by condemning the murder of farmers and all other victims. If the ANC were to refuse, AfriForum will, according to Kriel, continue with its legal action against the ANC’s appeal against the prohibition of the use of the “shoot the Boer” slogan. AfriForum is also going ahead full steam with its hate speech case in the Equality Court in Johannesburg against the ANC Youth leader, Julius Malema.
In addition, AfriForum intends to step up its protest actions at courts where murder suspects appear.

A massive forest fire broke out near Haifa in Israel today and NASA took a image of it with the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Agua satellite. The photo was taken at 12:10pm local time.
You can see a red line on the outside of the fire drawn by NASA. Strong winds fueled the fire.
40 People died thus far of the fire and the fire is now totally out of control (time of writing). The worst hit part is Carmel Mountain region, the IDF allocated all its resources to fight the fire.
The cause of the fire is still unknown.

The farm of Tweefontein was attacked and the farmer, his wife and their three year old daughter was brutally murdered this morning police confirmed. The farm lies between Lindley and Steynsrus.
The farm of Tweefontein was attacked and the farmer, his wife and their three year old daughter was brutally murdered this morning police confirmed. The farm lies between Lindley and Steynsrus. The area is known for numerous farm attacks in previous history.
The farmer according to police was stabbed (Edit: previously said shot, but the farmer was stabbed to death), his wife and his daughter were shot at close range. People that know the family are in shock, especially for the fact that they shot a 3 year old girl.
Farm murders in South Africa is nothing new but the government still blames farmers and refuses to acknowledge the attacks on farmers as planned. The ANC, South Africa’s ruling party went to court just this week to fight and keep the song “kill the boers” legal.
South Africa’s farmers get no help from government in protection, instead the government goes to court to sing about murdering this minority.
There has opened up an alarming call for the assassination of Julian Assange and the death penalty for Pvt Manning who allegedly passed on the confidential documentation to Wikileaks.
There has opened up an alarming call for the assassination of Julian Assange and the death penalty for Pvt Manning who allegedly passed on the confidential documentation to Wikileaks. First Ms McFarland wrote a article on Fox News website calling for the prosecution then execution of Private Bradley Manning;
Let’s charge him and try him for treason. If he’s found guilty, he should be executed.
She also stated that President Obama should use his influence to have Iceland shut down Wikileaks, for they are hosting the site, then he should turn to Australia to revoke Julian’s Passport leaving him stranded in whichever country he is residing. Then she suggest that Obama should request that Julian must be charged with espionage. If that is not going far enough Ms McFarland wrote that President Obama should have Julian extradited to the United States of America and have him brought in front of military tribunal even though he is not a terrorist or part of any military and should be tried for his ‘crimes’.
Now Professor Tom Flanagan , the adviser of the Stephen Harper Prime Minister of Canada, said that Julian Assange should be assassinated for publishing those confidential documents. He did it in a joking manner saying Obama should have Julian assassinated and he should use drones to do it. That someone could say something so callous on a news broadcast just show how power hungry politicians have become. They honestly believe people do not have right to political or military information. That as normal citizens who they ‘rule’ instead of working for, they have the right to do as they please without giving explanations of what is truly happening they are only interested in protecting themselves. Without people like Julian and without sites like Wikileaks the people will be ignorant of what their governments are doing behind their backs.

South Africans hoping to get a driving licence for a heavy vehicle should know that from 1 February 2011 the laws will be different.
South Africans hoping to get a driving licence for a heavy vehicle should know that from 1 February 2011 the laws will be different. From February you will not be able to use your Code 14 licence to drive a car or a light motor vehicle.
New amendments were made to the road traffic legislation that will kick in on the 1st of February 2011.
Current licence holders are not included in this new law and would be able to use their licence as usual. This does not mean you would need two different cards with you while driving. The Department of Transport said that “Holders of two categories of licences will not be required to carry two different licence cards. One licence card will be endorsed with the necessary authorisations that allow that person to drive the stipulated class of motor vehicle”
A man in Austria was sued because he offended his Muslim neighbours.
A man in Austria was sued because he offended his Muslim neighbours. In the land of yodeling he was doing just that. He was yodeling while cutting grass when his muslim neighbours thought he was mocking them.
According to a local news paper the Muslims were in the middle of prayer hence the reason they thought he was mocking them. The Muslims are not Austrian citizens by birth, they are immigrants suing a Austrian man for doing something that Austria is known for.
The 63 year old man was fined by the court and had to pay up 800 Euros after judges ruled he mocked the Muslims.
It is getting more obvious as the Wikileaks documents come out that some of them must be fake or setup.
It is getting more obvious as the Wikileaks documents come out that some of them must be fake or setup. The reason for this is that a lot of the evidence in the Wikileaks released files contradict previous evidence of certain events.
Yesterday Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad raised concern about the “leaked” documents published by Wikileaks. He claims they are psychological warfare.
One of the biggest inconsistencies about Wikileaks in relation to other sites for instance torrent sites is that the US Department of Homeland Security ceased 76 domains for copyright violation without court orders. If they are so hellbent on censoring certain websites why did they not censor Wikileaks as well? It might be speculation but that is because Wikileaks is going to give them reason to invade Iran.
So like 100’s of other people ask, is Wikileaks part of a bigger conspiracy?

In the United States many things are illegal and starting to be illegal. You cant take a photograph because then you are profiled, you cant disagree with government then you are a terrorist, you cant protect your head when police beat you with battons because then you are resisting arrest. Now to put the cherry on the cake of the police state S510 passes.
There is a lot of controversy and people argue on what can or cant be done under this bill but most people agree that you cant grow your own fruit or vegetable garden in your own backyard.
