Op watter planeet is Zuma wil dié Jood weet. Hy stel dit in die onderstaande artikel dat Zuma só uit voeling is met die werklikheid dat ‘n mens moet wonder oor sy verstandelike gesondheid.
Vraag wat na vore kom is of Tony nie self ly aan geheue versaking nie? Is dit dan nie dieselfde “planeet” wat voorspoedig en vooruitstrewend was tot die mate van ‘n oordaat van voorspoed in 1966 waarvan hy praat nie?( Die Rand Daily Mail 30 Julie 1966: “The nation is suffering from a surfeit of prosperity...” “He can claim that South Africa is a shining example of peace in a troubled continent, ...” het die Mail van dr. H.F.Verwoerd se leierskap prestasie geskryf)
Dieselfde “planeet”, sedert 1994 veelrassig, ‘n toestand waarvoor hy en sy Jodegenote hulle be-ywer het om Afrikanerbeheer te laat oorgaan in swart meerderheidsbeheer. ‘n Veelrassige Planeet onder swart Kommunistiese terroriste se beheer, ten spyte van waarskuwings dat die uitkoms van hulle beleid presies dit gaan wees wat hy nou as verstandelike ongesteldheid verklaar en bepaald nie nou daarvan hou nie! Hoe polities nugter is diegene wat beskawing offer vir Afrikanisme, waarvan die hele Afrika ‘n aanskouingsles is?
Hoe nugter dus is Leon? Om Barry Goldwater met Zuma te vergelyk is alreeds ‘n politiekgestremde bedenklikheid. Wat wel vanuit goeie politieke oordeel as kranksinnig beskou kan word, ondersteun deur onderliggende landsverraad, is die optrede van mense soos waarna verwys: Bob Hepple, Arthur Goldreich , Harold Wolpe , James Kantor, Dennis Goldberg, Joel Joffe, Bram Fischer, Vernon Berrange, Arthur Chaskalson, George Bizos, almal Jode soos jy, wat op die een of ander wyse betrokke was by die Lilliesleaf farm Rivonia saak in 1963 en vandag nog die Godlose grondwet roem en die sigbare en voelbare chaos wat daaruit gebore is ontken. Die name is ontleen aan die bravado van die Joodse skrywers oor hulle rasgenote se "prestasies" teen die Afrikanervolk, Norman Levy, Lionel Bernstein en Bob Hepple.
Norman Levy: ( In one of these (State versus Abram Fischer and Thirteen Others) I was one of the fourteen accused.1 By mid-1963 MK recruits were being trained abroad and arrangements were well in advance for a new style of underground activity. The core of leaders still in the country were in hiding, fast learning to become “professional revolutionaries”. They often met and lived in the safe haven purchased by the SACP for the protection of its leading individuals. This was the small-holding at Rivonia, known as Liliesleaf Farm.
Die Joodsgedrewe DA waarvan Leon die leier was verskil ook weinig indien enige met die oogmerke van die ANC/SAKP. Hulle ywer om die Afrikaner se beheer oor Suid Afrika aan ‘n veelrassige regime te kon oorhandig, waarvan die DA nou kastig die opposisie is, dít is mos die planeet waarna jy in jou artikel verwys. Die ontstaan daarvan deur die verloop na 1994 wat nou vir jou swaksinnig voorkom, was voorspel deur politiekkundige Afrikanerleiers en het met Zuma se vermoë absoluut niks te make nie.
Die oorsprong van die swaksinnigheid, (you would be forced to conclude that our own president suffers from delusions on a grand scale),setel by diégene wat van meet af aan teen hulle beterwete, hulle be-ywer het vir hierdie “veelrassige planeet” en nou nog, tot hulle beskaming, deel het aan die bestel van “our own president”!
Die Joodse gemeenskap in Suid Afrika se veragtelike aandeel in die diefstal van Suid Afrika, wat selfs bereid was om ten koste van ‘n beskaafde blanke volk wat vir hulle ‘n veilige tuiste en heenkome voorsien het, te verraai, het daarmee ook hulle aard verraai! Ek sou in skaamte die land verlaat het as ek Tony Leon was instede daarvan om politieke meerderwaardigheid teenoor Zuma te projekteer wat vanweë die Jode se onderduimsheid die pos bekom het wat hy beklee.
The Big Read: What planet is Zuma on? (Times Live)
President seems so out of touch with reality you have to wonder about his mental health

For students of US politics, there are at least three reasons to remember the late senator from Arizona, Barry Goldwater.
First, as the Republican presidential nominee back in 1964 he posted one of the most catastrophic losses in modern US politics. Incumbent President Lyndon Johnson demolished him by the extraordinary margin of 22.58% of the popular vote and Goldwater only managed to win six states, five of them in the segregationist deep South.
Second, within just 16 years of that loss, in 1980 a far smoother and more avuncular Republican candidate than the rough-hewn, straight-shooting Goldwater, in the form of Ronald Reagan, would also sweep the presidency by a landslide. And he, essentially, ran on the same libertarian, anti-communist platform as Goldwater.
The third aspect of the Goldwater campaign that relates to the swamp of SA politics right now was in the psychological realm. It commenced with his campaign slogan: "In your heart you know he's right." The Democrats countered: "In your guts you know he's nuts."
His opponents' cruel cut related to Goldwater's erratic performance in the campaign, which included a proposal to detonate a nuclear bomb over North Vietnam and a ringing defence of "extremism". This led many eminent authorities to question the mental health of the Republican standard-bearer.
In fact, 1000 psychiatrists penned a letter to a magazine, declaring Goldwater to be "psychologically unfit" to be president.
In a recent article, Jane Meyer in The New Yorker noted that Goldwater went on to win a defamation action from the publication, and the American Psychiatric Association imposed the so-called "Goldwater rule". This forbade its members from commenting in public on the "psyches of living public figures whom they have not personally examined".
But, as Meyer notes with a waspish sting, the presidency of Donald Trump is "testing the limits" of this rule. In breach of it, a leading US psychiatrist declared: "It's my view that Trump has a narcissistic personality disorder . he is deluded and compulsive and he has no conscience."
Happily, there is no "Goldwater rule" in South Africa. But if there were, you would be forced to conclude that our own president suffers from delusions on a grand scale.
Jacob Zuma's performance in parliament last Thursday seemed to provide further incontrovertible proof. Asked by opposition leader Mmusi Maimane about his ability to lead the country, he declared: "I am fit and I am doing it very well."
"Very well"? Let's just recap some snapshot facts and not fake news: the country is in a recession (Zuma's second in eight years), unemployment has spiked at its highest rate ever (27.7%) and business confidence is at a nine- year low. Social grants have increased by a whopping 328% in 15 years while real jobs have grown by less than one-tenth of that (24%). Every credit rating agency has downgraded our debt and we are just one notch from the credit junkyard. You have to wonder in which universe Zuma lives and which planet he orbits to conclude he is doing "very well".
And that's just on the economic front. Zuma presided over the loss of Johannesburg, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth in last year's election and his party's hitherto stalwart ally Cosatu is about to impose a national shutdown to protest his continuance in office.
But, to be fair to Zuma and his declaration of high competence, he did precede his remarks with a chuckle and then later in the same question session, he mystifyingly contradicted himself. He said: "I never said I am a good leader, I was elected by the people." The same "people'' who now rank him here, according to polls, as more unpopular than Trump is in the US and the world.
But when delusions fail our Number One, there is always victimology to fall back on. The Oxford Dictionary describes this state as "a mental attitude which tends to indulge and perpetuate the feelings of being a victim". In the same question session in parliament, the country's most powerful citizen, the man at the centre of the state and its capture, decided that victimology was transferable to his favoured son.
"You can't just single out one person just because he is the son of the president. It's not fair, it is not correct."
Actually when that son, Duduzane, is in league with the Guptas, and has accumulated millions from his proximity to power and features prominently in the spewed e-mails and amid claims that Zuma precisely said in private what he denied in parliament, then there is every right to raise the alarm.
But then again, Zuma's response to state capture is to appoint a commission. Readers will recall how long the Marikana Commission took to complete its work (three years); or the commission of inquiry into Fees Must Fall (more than one-and-a- half years and still waiting); or the Arms Deal commission (reported but no result or culpability for wrongdoing).
Not just kicking into the long grass, but more likely a forest, which will sprout long before results, if any, emerge. By then Zuma will be out of office. And if his former wife is elected to the presidency, by all accounts, he will be out of harm's way as well.
But Zuma is not the only occupant of high office who seems at one remove from reality. Just last week the KwaZulu-Natal government decided to retain the health MEC who has presided over the abuse of the human rights (if not the lives) of cancer patients at provincial hospitals (no oncologists and no working equipment).
Cynically or terrifyingly, can you imagine which is worse: to be a mental health patient in Gauteng or a cancer sufferer in KZN?
Then, at the weekend, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa offered us a stunning insight: he told the Sunday Times: "We can't watch as the country sinks."
The ripostes on social media were swift and brutal. As journalist Songezo Zibi tweeted: "But you've been watching for years already." In the echo chamber of denial and shrugging off of responsibility - which characterises the presidency these days - it is all of a piece. And Ramaphosa has been in the presidential wheelhouse since 2009. Come to think of it, he was also first elected ANC secretary-general in 1991, 26 years ago.
More than 20 years ago, Inkatha Freedom Party president Mangosuthu Buthelezi coined a smart decoding for the initials ANC. He said it meant "Absolutely No Consequences". In that respect at least, he was way ahead of his time.
Perhaps not just in psychiatric terms, but electorally as well, Goldwater's fate awaits the current abusers of local power.
