The Department of Home Affairs yesterday announced that “refugees” and asylum permit holders can now open banks accounts. That is great but what is not great is that the tax payers of South Africa will now have to feed or “support” another couple of thousand people as the South African government also gave the refugees access to social services.
Now what does that mean? Well it means that they can get disability grants, old age grands, child support grants. It means that the couple of tax payers left in the country now has more weight on their shoulders.
The department of Home affairs director general, Mkuseli Apleni said that
“This would be in line with international practice and conventions to help create a climate in which refugees and asylum permit holders can live their lives in dignity while engaging in economic activities to lead normal lives like the rest of the citizenry.”
“once you are granted a refugee or asylum status you qualify for all the rights in the country except the right to vote”.
Now if these were normal refugees maybe the citizens of South Africa would feel different but they are mostly Zimbabweans, that of which Jacob Zuma and their dictating “president” held hands and looked like two school children on a secret date.
South Africa supports Robert Mugabe’s regime, now we all support his dictatorship whether we like it or not. Will this move encourage even more xenophobia?
George Clarke is a collector of all things Charlie Chaplin and upon watching one of the DVD’s he bought of Charlie Chaplin’s "the circus" made in 1928 he discovered something that looks like a woman with a cellphone. Now obviously in those days there were no cellphones but no one seems to be able to explain his find.
If you watch this video you can see the woman is most definitely holding something in her hand and indeed it looks like a cellphone. The best explanation anyone came up with so far is either a "earpiece" or hearing aid of those days, or that she or he was in fact a time traveler if there is going to exist such a thing.
You really cant argue with George Clarke’s theory, the woman is holding something. The hard thing is to figure what exactly that might be.
The volcano that is about to explode according to scientists is a well known volcano in region of Java, Indonesia. The volcano’s type is a Stratovolcano and the last known eruption was in 2007. The summit is around 2968m or 9737 feet.
Merapi is also one of Indonesia’s most active volcanoes and is in a very densely populated area. The volcano is extensively being monitored by the Merapi Volcano Observatory.
Mount Merapi translates as Gunung Merapi that translates to English as Mountain of Fire. The volcano has erupted regularly since 1548. In 1994 64 people in the town of Muntilan was killed by the volcano.
In 2006 another eruption happened.
The alert level is now once again raised to the highest alert level.
Founder of Wikileaks did not like how personal CNN’s journalist Atika Shubert was getting in her questions and walked out of the interview. As seen in the video Julian Assange repeatedly tells Atika what her questioning has to do with the real issue – the death of 109 000 people. He took offence that his personal life was of more interest than the latest announced leak from Wikileaks on the war in Afghanistan.
So far they have published 77 000 US intelligence reports of the war in Afghanistan and just released almost 400 000 US intelligence documents from the Iraq War. There is still 15 000 documents from Afghanistan coming. Wikileaks have learnt they lesson though from their previous large scale release and have removed any confidential or sensitive names and some information and all the information have been approved to be released.
Julian’s anger is understandable as the questioning was irrelevant to what is happening at the moment. Atika even went so far as to look for a previous employee to try and gets some dirt on Julian. Looks like she was ignoring the real important information choosing to concentrate on gossip and speculation.

Television watchdog group Parents Television Council has publicly condemned Miley Cyrus new music video Who Owns My Heart? calling it age inappropriate. While looking at the video some may question why they say so as there are much worse things seen on television today especially music videos. According to Parents Television Council the fact that Miley is still under age (17 years old) and seen writhing on a bed in her underwear singing a very suggestive song. That is their whole issue her age.
If she made the music video in Europe and lived there this would not be a issue, she could have run around naked but in America the legal age of consent is 18 years old and to film a under age girl in such a provocative light is illegal. If this was not Miley Cyrus those producers would have been in serious trouble. But then again this is not the first time Miley has made the headlines because of her flaunting convention.
We wrote previously what people believe to be the planet Nibiru, a planet many believe exists and is heading for earth. People believe this is the 10th planet that has caused numerous apocalyptic events in the history of the world. They also have good proof that they might in fact have a point with all the theories.
One of those theories are the exact location of “Nibiru”. If there was ever something on Google Earth that caused conspiracy theories to thrive then it is the big black hole on Google Earth, or rather Google Sky.
It starts with the South Pole telescope, there are those that believe the telescope was built entirely for the purpose of tracking Nibiru and that the South Pole telescope once took a photo of planet X or Nibiru. The photograph made its way to Youtube where it was posted on a video. That video was removed for unknown reasons and it had the coordinates for Planet X.
Then a while back another person made another video with the exact coordinates of the previous removed video and that in turn points to a place in the solar system on Google Earth or the part of Google Earth known as Google Sky. Upon entering the coordinates it now gives a error.
Is there a hidden planet hiding behind the big black square in Google Earth?
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole is a animated film based on a 15 book series written by Kathryn Lasky. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole is based on three of those books The Capture, The Journey and The Rescue. The production took place in Australia but Warner Bros. owns the film rights to the books, that makes this a Australian slash American production. Producer of the film is Zack Snyder who also produced 300 and Watchmen making him familiar with the type of Graphics entailed in such a film. Animation was done by Animal Logic who wowed the world with Happy Feet.
This is a really wonderful movie that anyone can watch from toddler through to pensioner’s. The story line is true fantasy tale, looking at the trailer a person is already taken in at how real the owls seem. Not only is it captivating it’s also something not seen before. A movie solely based on owls who lives in this truly unique world with human characteristics and personalities.
Soren is a young owl who is captivated by his fathers tales of the Guardians of Ga’hoole a mythic group of owl warriors who fought against the Pure Ones who is a evil army who wants to rule the owlkind. Soren is the younger brother too Kludd, Kludd is jealous of the favour that Soren holds with their father. His jealously leads the two brothers on a path one has only dreamed of the other never even considered. It’s up to Soren to find the Guardians of Ga’hoole the only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and save the Owl Kingdoms.
Legend of the Guardians
Director Snyder selected a good cast starting with Soren whose voice was done by Jim Sturgess. Kludd voice is by Ryan Kwanten. Here is a list with some of the rest of the cast: Helen Mirren as Nyra; Anthony LaPaglia as Twilight; Sam Neill as Metal Beak; Abbie Cornish as Otulissa
Release date is on the 24 September 2010 in both 2D and 3D theatres.
Opinion:Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole is not appropriate for small children. At first it seems that way and because it is based on a children’s book I assumed it would be a family movie like Narnia. As a adult it was interesting and had my attention but children would find it difficult to follow and at times frightening. There are far more violence and darkness than I would have thought some scenes are disturbing too say the least. I would not recommend this film to small children the promotional material released of the movie was very misleading. The graphics is excellent and it is a riveting plot – just not family friendly.
Some time ago NASA made an announcement. They discovered another planet called Planet X. Now just in this statement there are already thousands of people debating just that, even a NASA scientist in 2008 tried to debunk the Nibiru or Planet X "myths".
Well if you know what this is all about you might as well skip the rest of this article. If you have never heard of the supposed planet-sized object heading this way then read on.
Like many other “conspiracy theories” it should contain some truth because conspiracy theories are just that, most of them are truth of something that happened without those that believe it being able to entirely prove it or they do not get the opportunity to prove the facts behind most conspiracy theories, hence they remain conspiracy theories.. Although that also is not always the case the Niburu theory does get pretty convincing once you do some research.
Between 1982 and 1984 various newspapers and magazines published stories about the 10th planet, a planet so far that scientists described it as a mysterious object from outer space. (yes, their choice of words was much like everything else of the day).
In June of 1982 John Anderson of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California said that a 10th planet is most likely the cause of orbital snags, this planet was said to be further than 4 billion miles away at the time.
Then between 1982 and 1983 there were various reports of Planet X (X meaning 10th or 10 for the 10th planet in our solar system). Some of the reports claimed that a gravitational force was causing irregularities in the orbits of Neptune and Uranus.
The observation of Uranus back in the 1840’s led to the discovery of Neptune and the same irregularities that were found when Neptune was discovered is said to still exist, not the same irregularities but other ones that show that there should be a planet where one has not been discovered yet.
After the discovery of Neptune the orbital behaviour that led to the discovery of Neptune still existed with Uranus not having the full mass to cause that behaviour and that in turn led two Americans, William H Pickering and Percival Lowell to predict that there is another planet. Lowell called this planet Planet X.
After the prediction Pluto was found but scientists believed that was not the large planet that would be able to cause the irregularities with the planets.
Then between 1983 and 1984 Dr Thomas C van Flandern said that the irregularities could be explained by this undiscovered planet, the one that many call Niburu or Planet X.
In those days (1980’s) it was predicted that “planet X” was between 2 and 5 times bigger than earth.
From those days the story lived on and still does until today, it has however gotten a few twists. In the 1990’s Voyager 2 spacecraft found that the observed irregularities were due to miscalculations of Neptune’s mass.
Scientists mostly “agree” that Planet X does not exist, however many feel this is just a coverup, a conspiracy. Some scientists believe that Planet X is indeed the only way to explain some anomalies in the outer Solar System.
In September of 1983 astronomers saw a “celestial body” in outer space, they then immediately said it was Planet X. Gerry Neugesbeuer, director of the Palomar Observatory for the California Institute of Technology at the time said that they dont know what it is yet ( at the time) and it was hoped that the two space probes Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11 would find something.
The way the “planet” was spotted is with the Infrared astronomical satellite circling the polar orbit more than 500 miles from earth. The object or planet was seen to emit heat about 50 billion miles away.
Niburu, Nibiru and Planet X
Nibiru and Niburu are two different things:
Niburu also known as Neberu or Nebiru come from the Akkadian language and means “point of transition” or crossing. For instance a river crossing.
The story of Niburu actually comes from a cult, Niburu was named as the seat of summus deus, a entity said to look after the stars. The stars have been referred to as his “sheep” in the way the cult believes he pastures the stars.
The Nibiru however is believed to be related to the Planet X story. People sometimes get confused with the two. However some have theories and beliefs that make intermingle the two.
The real story of what most people believe Nibiru to be is a large planetary object, as we wrote earlier a planet 5 times the size of earth (although some believe that Nibiru is 1/5th of the earth’s size) would hit the earth or come really close to earth and cause a doomsday event or to what some refer to as apocalypse . The end of the world or something similar. The claim of scientists are that this is all a bunch of crap.
Many think that Nancy Lieder started the theory as she claimed to communicate with aliens but modern day belief puts the theory somewhere in the line of NASA seeing a massive earth sized object in the 1980’s, after realising that this massive planet-sized object is actually moving towards earth they quickly hid the evidence and acted like nothing of that kind ever existed.
The name Nibiru actually actually comes from a guy called Zecharia Sitchin, he wrote a book in 1976 called “The 12th Planet” and the book claims that there is a undiscovered planet beyond Neptune, this is basically what Planet X is according to the theory but according to Sitchin’s book and theories the story of Nibiru has something to do with the mystical legend of Marduk.
Zecharia Sitchin seems like an intelligent person but for the sake of not getting confused we will skip this part unless you want to read about aliens, and all that. Lets just skip to the end of the world part.
The end of the world part.
You must have the idea by now. There is a massive planet-sized object, there are some beliefs of mythological entities guiding the stars and then there is the theory that this massive planet-sized object is heading to earth and the conspiracy that NASA is hiding the facts because they dont want to freak out the entire earth’s population by telling us that earth might be gone in 2012.
Some say there is scientific evidence for this, they might have a point when looking at what they claim to be the scientific evidence, or you might think otherwise.
This is one of the most obvious things people notice today, the weather is going weird. Some blame global warming and some blame the earth’s natural cycles but those that believe in the Planet X theory believe that the weather is going crazy because the gravitational power of Planet X is effecting earth more because the planet is coming closer and closer.
Normal behaviour is to have the dog fixed when someone does not want their dog or cat to breed. And if the dog, per chance, had puppies before it’s fixed what would you do?
The last thing most people would do is fling them one by one into a strong river and, from the look on this girls face, enjoy it. What makes someone enjoy flinging live defenseless puppies into a river? There are so many more humane ways to get rid of the puppies but this is just inhuman.
Animal control is really important, pet numbers can get out of control really quickly, especially in rural areas, but this has to one of the most cold hearted ways of treating unwanted animals.This person is finding enjoyment out of the little pups yelps and how far she can throw them. The fact that someone thought it’s okay to the point of recording and posting it online shows the state of mind of this girl and her accomplice are in. Cruelty is not funny.

UVB-76 is the call-sign of a shortwave radio transmission that broadcasts what many believe to be Russian Morse code. Also known as the buzzer that has the sound of a alarm clock with a flat battery. Since 1982 there were only 3 times when the buzzer’s signal got interrupted and on August the 23rd something happened. A person with a "Hebrew" voice said the following words:
No one really knows what the station is for but many believe it is for Russian spies and military to receive encrypted code but a voice speaking is very unusual. If you take the first letter of each word it spells NAIMNA which could be "na imena" which means "on names" as if someone is giving them names.
What makes the story even stranger is that a few days ago a user posted a message on 4chan, you can see the picture above. The entire threat is now missing on 4chan.
The information I am about to relay to you is highly classified. No one is supposed to know this. I do not know how much time i have to relay this to you. Currently, I am behind several unknown proxies so the government is unable to track down my location. However, I know that with several people educated about the events about to unfold, I may be able to save hundreds of lives. These evens have been planned out for years in special sessions of the United Nations, barring some representatives from these meetings which were never to go down on record. This is completely staged, and everything that occurs results of these evens will be expected and set into motion by the government officials all over the world.
Second message by same user:
The Russian Station UVB-76 is a "Dead Man’s Switch" created to detonate a nuclear device set in South Korea’s capital. It will be activated by Dmitry Medvedev’s assassination in early September. It has been made clear in the sessions that North Korea will take the blame and war will begin.
The United States and Japan will join South Korea as China will with North Korea. Nuclear weaponry will be involved, especially in nuclear incidents on USA’s Western Coast.
The Middle East will get involved, attacking the Eastern seaboard. President Obama and other continental political figures will be evacuated to an undisclosed location as the stock market crashes, civil unrest erupts and the National Guard takes over and puts martial law into effect.
Western Europe, Africa and South America will be heavily affected economically while Australia remains virtually untouched. Russia will join China and North Korea and win the third World War, and a New World Order will be put into effect. Tell everyone you know to go into hiding in the most isolated corners of the earth and prepare for the worst.
I can reveal very little information except for this. I am endangering my life and those of my loved ones by uncovering this massive plot. Please, let no one with authority know.
End of message.
UPDATES TO FOLLOW SOON.
UPDATE: The transmission is live right now. According to people tuned in people are talking on the transmission.
California, United States – In a recent study to be published in the September 1st issue of Geology the University of California – Irvine reveals that the next major earthquake might be due at the San Andreas fault line. They found that there are major earthquakes every 45 to 144 years and the last big one was in 1857, that is more than a century ago.
Lisa Grant Ludwig recently said that “If you’re waiting for somebody to tell you when we’re close to the next San Andreas earthquake, just look at the data,”. She is the principal investigator on the study so she knows what she’s talking about.
As an associate professor of public health she hopes the study will be a “wake up call to Californians” that might of grown complacent about where they live. They live right on the fault line.
She also hopes people are prepared when it comes to emergency supplies, bug out bags, water and other much needed emergency supplies in case a big earthquake disaster might strike California or surrounding areas.
Ludwig also confirmed that data and belief that major earthquakes only happens every 250 – 400 years at that specific area was wrong, inaccurate, they are in fact much more frequent.
Ludwig said: “People should not stick their heads in the ground. There are storm clouds gathered on the horizon. Does that mean it’s definitely going to rain? No, but when you have that many clouds, you think, ‘I’m going to take my umbrella with me today.’ That’s what this research does: It gives us a chance to prepare.”
Ron Paul advised people to spend money on gold because of the dollar going down. In a talk on Goldseek Radio Ron Paul discusses the Financial Reform Bill as well. Ron Paul also talks about 2012 amongst other things.
Ron Paul talks about the gold shortage as well saying "they are making it harder and harder to get gold".
Forty people was injured during a Spanish bullring ‘performance’ in Tafalla, northern Spain. The youngest person rushed to hospital was a ten year old boy who received an abdominal injury, he is reportedly in intensive care at a Pamplona hospital.
This specific event was where the people try to provoke the bull into charging. The bull damaged his horn trying to jump the enclosure and was being returned to the corral when it suddenly charged and jumped the 1.5 meters barrier where the bullfighters and officials stand. In the video chaos ensues as he lands in the middle of the spectators just when things seem to calm down someone threw a cape at the bull causing it to charge once again. It was eventually cornered and roped in.
This all comes a month after the north-eastern region of Spain, Catalonia banned bullfighting. Giving more ammunition to those who oppose this tradition of killing bulls as a sport and wants it banned throughout Spain.
SALTO AL TENDIDO TORO TAFALLA – 40 HERIDOS – 18 AGOSTO 2010
UPDATE: Ron Paul appeared on the Alex Jones show saying that he might or might not run for president. He first wants to see if he has support.
Washington, United States of America – According to the Ron Paul forums on his website he ( Ron Paul ) will run for the president of the United States in 2012. The message said “Ron Paul WILL BE running in 2012 barring unforseen circumstances”.
Ron Paul ran for president in 2008 but his popularity was not there yet, after Obama people realised that Ron Paul was the “real change” they were hoping for but unfortunately by then had already voted for Barack Obama.
If Ron Paul would run for president he already has the online support Barack Obama had if not more.
On the 21st of August 2010 Iran will put their nuclear reactor on (fitting the nuclear rod is practically putting it on). That means Israel can not bomb it because it would be too dangerous because radiation will spread all over the Persian Gulf including in the water of the Persian Gulf.
John Bolton former US ambassador to the United Nations and a previous Bush adviser said that when Russia put those rods into the Bushehr reactor in Iran, that will be the point of no return. Israel cant attack the reactor then and that would make them (Iran) “imune to assault” as Bolton said.
In 1981 Israel attacked the Iraqi Osirak and the Nuclear plant Syria was building in 2007 before both those places could fit the rod.
According to NASA the floods in Pakistan is so bad that it changed the appearance of the lower Indus River.
NASA said the following about the satellite images:
A flood surge heading for Pakistan’s coast changed the appearance of the lower Indus River in just four days. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured these images on August 8, 2010 (top), August 10, 2010 (middle), and August 12, 2010 (bottom).
All three images use a combination of infrared and visible light to increase the contrast between water and land. Water appears in varying shades of blue. Vegetation is green, and bare ground is pinkish brown. Clouds range in color from pale blue-green to bright turquoise. A thin veil of clouds hangs over much of the region on August 12.
On August 8, even though the lower Indus has risen far above its typical levels, it still appears as a relatively thin braided stream south of Sukkur. On August 10, the river has widened south of the city, and on August 12, the Indus has risen even more. Compared to the previous two images, the water appears fairly light in color on August 12. This may result from the angle of sunlight or from cloud cover, but might also result from an increased sediment load in the water.
The first image is last year and that is how Pakistan looked, the satellite image of Pakistan this year the same time shows us just how flooded and the destruction the monsoons caused so far. According to weather reports in Pakistan all the destruction is not over yet since there are more rains coming. They are now about half way in the Monsoon season.
According to NASA:
Floodwaters continued rushing down the Indus River on August 10, 2010. High waters had traveled more than 1,000 kilometers (600 miles), from the northern reaches of the country to Pakistan’s breadbasket in Punjab Province, and on to Sindh Province. In Sindh, two million people had already evacuated.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured these images on August 10, 2010 (top), and almost exactly one year earlier, August 11, 2009 (bottom). The images show the lower Indus River, at the boundary of Punjab and Sindh Provinces. Both images use a combination of infrared and visible light to increase the contrast between water and land. Water appears in varying shades of blue. Vegetation is green, and bare ground is pinkish brown. Clouds range in color from pale blue-green to bright turquoise.
In 2009, the Indus appears as a thin river—a braided stream north of Sukkur (where a barrage affects water flow), and a very skinny meandering waterway south of that city. In 2010, the river has completely filled the river valley, merging the braided streams north of Sukkur, and pushing water over riverbanks in places. Northwest of the river valley, around the city of Sibi, standing water is evident on what appears to be normally arid ground. Pools of water also appear due east of Sibi, on the other side of the river.
On August 10, 2010, the Indus River is less swollen south of Sukkur than it is north of the city, but even compared to an image acquired on August 8, water levels downstream from Sukkur appear higher. Early in the day on August 9, the recorded water flow through Sukkur Barrage was up to 1.4 million cubic feet per second (cusecs). The barrage is only designed to withstand a maximum of 900,000 cusecs.
United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs stated that the scale of destruction from Pakistan’s monsoon flooding in July and August of 2010 surpassed the devastation from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 northern Pakistan earthquake, and the 2010 Haiti earthquake combined.
Ellisras, South Africa – Koos Daffeu a 46 year old farmer from Ellisras who is also a member of Solidarity was shot dead in an ambush about 5 km from Ellisras while travelling to work.
On his way to work he was ambushed and shot at, while it is still unknown if one of the shots caused him to crash his car, he crashed his car just meters from where he was shot at. The attackers that apparently hid under the low bridge and waited for him then shot the unarmed man at point blank, they stole nothing and with most other farm attacks it seems as if the only motive is that they wanted Koos dead.
Koos was found dead in his crashed car with bullet wounds, bullets casings scattered around the car. The suspects are gone. At this point it is also unknown just how many attackers there were.
Solidarity said that it is clear that the SAPS is not able to protect people from crime in South Africa, they said the resulting murders in South Africa speaks for themselves. In South Africa 40 people per 100 000 get murdered whereas the international norm is only 5 per 100 000
Washington, USA – A new bill is heading to Obama soon that will require all United States citizens to do national service. All citizens between 18 and 42 will be required to do national service under bill HR 5741 to meet "end strength" requirements.
The bill was already introduced and is now heading to the Committee. If successful the bill will then be going to the house and then senate whereafter Obama will sign the bill and make it official.
The US is seeing its lowest support for their wars and occupation globally since 9/11. Obama’s promises to bring the troops home are now long forgotten and soon citizens of the United States will have no choice but to "support" the war.
A group calling themselves “blackwash” wants the anger directed at the foreign nationals in South Africa to be redirected to the “settlers”. The group is spreading the “Anti-Afrophobia” pamplets in townships and they have been doing so since July the 9th 2010.
There are rumours and more than just rumours to show that xenophobia will start after the 2010 World Cup. This group wants that directed at white people according to their pamplets.
Part of the pamphlet reads “We want what is ours, we will not kill our brothers for menial jobs which pay starvation wages or for selling tamatoes and potatoes. our country is rich but the ANC has given it to the settlers and some of its leaders in BEE deals to loot.”
Who exactly is the settlers? Well as they say “The white elite settlers”.
