  • 70,000 Whites Murdered In South Africa Since 1994

    Alphabetical list of a Genocide as posted on Sunette Bridges Web Site in South Africa...almost 70 000 White People have been murdered by Blacks in South Africa since 1994! These people were shot, bludgeoned, hacked, tortured, burnt, stabbed and mutilated. There is no official list available with the names of all these victims and since 2007 it has become very difficult to keep any kind of record as police no longer mention the race of the victim nor the perpetrator on...... It is time we stop talking about figures, numbers and statistics and speak of the names of the people...

    South Africa has dismissed allegations its white farmers are "persecuted" after an Australian minister said they needed help from a "civilised" country.Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said he was exploring giving South Africa's white farmers access to fast-track visas on humanitarian grounds. The suggestion was made amid calls to transfer land ownership from white to black farmers in South Africa, and fears over the number of farm killings.But South Africa says it is ridiculous.Government spokesman Ndivhuwo Mabaya told the BBC there was no reason for any country in the world to suspect a section of the South African population was...

    Australia is ready to consider issuing special visas to mainly white, Afrikaans-speaking South African farmers due to the “horrific circumstances” of land seizures, violence and murder they face. Peter Dutton, Australia’s home affairs minister, told the Sydney Daily Telegraph on Wednesday his department was examining a range of methods to smooth their path to Australia on humanitarian or other visa programs. As Breitbart News has reported, South Africans are increasingly worried that the government’s plans to expropriate land from white farmers without compensation could destroy the economy and the country’s fragile democracy.

    KAKUMA, Kenya - These barren plains of sand and stone have always known lean times: times when the rivers run dry and the cows wither day by day, until their bones are scattered under the acacia trees. But the lean times have always been followed by normal times, when it rains enough to rebuild herds, repay debts, give milk to the children and eat meat a few times each week. Times are changing, though. Northern Kenya has become measurably drier and hotter, and scientists are finding the fingerprints of global warming. According to recent research, the region dried faster in...
  • Trump administration quietly makes it legal to bring elephant parts to the U.S. as trophies

    The Trump administration will allow Americans to bring tusks and other elephant body parts back to this country as trophies, in a pivot away from the support President Trump voiced last year for an Obama-era trophy ban. The decision, announced quietly in a March 1 memorandum from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, withdrew previous rulings on trophy hunting and said the agency would allow sport hunters to receive permits for the trophy items on a “case-by-case basis.” The move contrasts sharply with the position taken by Trump in November. After the Fish and Wildlife Service announced a repeal of...

    We the People call upon Congress to apply immigration priority to the South African Farmers facing systematic land confiscation and murder by their own government. These government sanctioned land confiscations / murders are race related (See here - ) and our governments responsibility to act by UN law ( See here - ) Must not be ignored. White South African Farmers facing genocide in their home land should be given priority as they not only face extinction in their homelands but also stand as a primary example of the kind of immigrants we would want here in our...

    SOUTH Africa’s parliament has voted in favour of a motion that will begin the process of amending the country’s Constitution to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation. The motion was brought by Julius Malema, leader of the radical Marxist opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters, and passed overwhelmingly by 241 votes to 83 against. The only parties who did not support the motion were the Democratic Alliance, Freedom Front Plus, Cope and the African Christian Democratic Party. It was amended but supported by the ruling African National Congress and new president Cyril Ramaphosa, who made land expropriation...

One burial site on a low ridge overlooking the sea in Bettystown, Co Meath, was dated to the 5th/6th century AD using radiocarbon dating. Most of the people were newcomers to the area, Cahill Wilson concluded. The clue was in their teeth. Enamel, one of the toughest substances in our body, completely mineralises around the age of...

    As left-wing protesters gathered to rally against the government's planned deportation of illegal African job-seeking migrants, hundreds of residents from south Tel Aviv and activists from the grassroots Zionist organization Im Tirtzu staged a counter-demonstration in support of the deportation. The counter-demonstration was held in the memory of Esther Galili, a 70-year-old resident of southern Tel Aviv and a Holocaust survivor who was beaten to death by an illegal migrant exactly eight years ago on February 24, 2010. Activists held signs reading "Residents of South Tel Aviv also Deserve Human Rights" and "Illegal Migrants - not Refugees," and labelled the...

    Here is some of what is posted on the page: Jan. 17 — The chimpanzee version of the AIDS virus appears to be extremely rare in wild chimps, which suggests the apes evolved a way to deal with the killer virus generations ago, researchers said on Thursday. The study also confirmed earlier theories that AIDS passed to humans from chimps in Central Africa, they said SCIENTISTS HAVE long known nonhuman primates carry their own version of the AIDS virus. But so far, it has been found only in captive chimpanzees. No one knows how prevalent or geographically or genetically diverse ...

    Israeli universities rejected a request to grant refuge to employment-seeking African infiltrators, Channel 20 reported. The idea was proposed by Yoel Marshak, who served as the Kibbutz Movement's activities coordinator until a few years ago. Marshak told Arutz Sheva that "the police are forbidden from entering [universities.] We will ask embassies to host them for a few days. During those days, we will negotiate with the Israeli government. If we don't negotiate now, we'll be negotiating then, in desperation." "There is an international agreement that police do not enter a university campus without permission from the university's management. We will...

    Israel’s Population and Immigration Authority on Sunday began serving deportation notices to Eritrean and Sudanese migrants and asylum seekers, telling them that they would be sent to an unnamed African country that enjoys a relatively “stable government.” “This is a country that has developed tremendously over the last decade and has absorbed thousands of returning residents as well as migrants from various African countries,” read the deportation notice, issued to hundreds of migrants as they stood in line at the Interior Ministry offices in Bnei Brak to renews their visas on Sunday. “In recent years, this country has shown the...
