Every day that passes adds to the fraudulent image of what is called Western democracy.
Consider that the entire Western world is outraged that the Greek prime minister announced that he is going to permit the Greek people to decide their own fate instead of having it decided for them by a handful of banksters, politicians, and bureaucrats living it up at taxpayer expense at “talks” in the French resort of Cannes on the Mediterranean.
The Greek economy is facing its fourth year of decline and lacks the revenues to service its national debt held by private European banks. The banks don’t want to lose any money, so a handful of power brokers reached an agreement with representatives of the Greek government to write off some of the debt in exchange for EU capital subsidies to be financed by inflicting severe austerity on the Greek population. Wages, salaries, pensions and medical care are being cut while the rate of unemployment rises to depression levels. Government employees are laid off. Valuable public properties are to be sold to private parties for pennies on the dollar. In short, Greece is to be looted.
Clive comments on the parole refusal.
On 18 July, 2011 I was called to the office of the chairman of the Pretoria Central Case Management Committee, Mr. Matopa, who informed me that my application for parole had been refused. When I asked him why I was refused he showed me a document which originated from the D.C.S. Minister’s office on which the words ‘further profile July, 2013’ were written diagonally across the document and underlined with a single line. When I asked him why there were no reasons given he could not answer me.
I have, today, 3 November, three and a half months later, received from the Area Commissioner, gen. Zebilon Monama, a document, dated 3 November, 2011, containing the reasons given by the minister and wish to comment as follows:
What the minister is saying that regardless of the findings of the very people trained to and responsible for recommending, in the case of lifers, and granting parole for those serving years, the Correctional Supervision and Parole Board (CSPB), who are made fully aware by the Case Management Committee of my suitability for release on parole, she rather places her trust in political reasons provided by people obviously bent on revenge and having no current information whatsoever on which to base their objections.
The Lord's Prayer are not allowed in most public schools in America anymore because the word 'God' is mentioned.....
In South Africa the trend is going the same way
A kid in Arizona wrote this NEW School prayer: "New Pledge of Allegiance"
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
1 PAULUS, ’n apostel van Jesus Christus, volgens die bevel van God, ons Verlosser, en van die Here Jesus Christus, ons Hoop,
2 aan Timótheüs, my ware kind in die geloof: Genade, barmhartigheid, vrede van God onse Vader en Christus Jesus, onse Here!
3 Soos ek jou versoek het toe ek na Macedónië op reis was, moet jy in Éfese wag om sekere persone te beveel dat hulle geen ander leer moet leer nie,
4 en hulle nie besig hou met fabels en eindelose geslagsregisters nie, wat net twisvrae bevorder meer as stigting van God wat in die geloof is.
5 Maar die doel van die gebod is liefde uit ’n rein hart en ’n goeie gewete en ’n ongeveinsde geloof
6 waarvan sommige mense afgedwaal en hulle afgewend het na onsinnige praatjies;
Is die gees van Jaap Marais nog iewers in ons volk vaardig?
In hierdie tye, waar dit duidelik geword het dat die materiële vir mense dikwels meer belangrik is as die beginsel, is dit opnuut nodig om weer te kyk na dít wat vaardig was in daardie groot Afrikaner, Jaap Marais.
In Oktober 1969 was die Nasionale Party van John Vorster op die kruin van die golf. Vorster het gery op die nalatenskap van dr Verwoerd en veral dit wat Verwoerd opgebou het deur durf en moed aan die dag te lê ondanks aanslae op sy lewe. Dr Verwoerd wou die Blankes se toekoms verseker, terwyl Vorster net na homself en sy party se belange omgesien het. Vorster was ‘n grootbek wat met sy stem baie betower het, en die Afrikaner en selfs die Engelssprekendes in Suid-Afrika op sleeptou geneem het. Hy was beginselloos, ‘n harde drinker en seker een van die swakste eerste ministers wat ons volk opgelewer het, maar is sy swakhede nie deur mense raakgesien nie, veral aangesien sy toesprake (waarin hy selfs die VSA gewaarsku het!), mense eenvoudig in ‘n staat van beswyming gelaat het.
DIE VYFDE VERS

Uit die put van ons ellende
En die diepte van ons smart
Met ons swaar geboë skouers
Oor ons uitgedeelde land
GLOBAL WARFARE: TARGETING IRAN:
By Michel Chossudovsky - Global Research, November 3, 2011
The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the World simultaneously. Militarization at the global level is instrumented through the US military's Unified Command structure: the entire planet is divided up into geographic Combatant Commands under the control of the Pentagon. According to (former) NATO Commander General Wesley Clark, the Pentagon’s military road-map consists of a sequence of war theatres: “[The] five-year campaign plan [includes]... a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.”
The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest.
A War on Iran has been on the drawing board of The Pentagon since 2004.
Iran's alleged nuclear weapons programme is the pretext and the justification. Tehran is also identified as a "State sponsor of terrorism", for allegedly supporting the Al Qaeda network.
In recent development, what is unfolding is an integrated attack plan on Iran led by the US, with the participation of the United Kingdom and Israel.
While the media has presented Israeli and British military planning pertaining to Iran as separate initiatives, what we are dealing with is an integrated and coordinated US led military endeavor.
