  • To Understand Obama, You MUST Understand South Africa’s Communist Revolution

    Behind the Biden “presidency,” Barack Obama looms large. But thanks to relentless media deception and propaganda, most Americans know very little about the real Obama. To truly understand him, it is essential to understand the roots of his political activism. It all begins with South Africa’s Communist revolution. In addition to launching his political career in the home of a Castro-backed communist terrorist (Bill Ayers), Barack Obama was inspired by a different Castro-backed communist terrorist decades earlier to get into politics in the first place. If that sounds absurd, it is only because the establishment media that helped bring Obama...

    Remember all the speeches about apartheid? As I recall, Jesse Jackson got involved in South African politics. It was the issue of our time, as they often say. For the record, apartheid was terrible and a correction was needed. However, it's hard to see what's happening in South Africa today. The country is a financial mess and the extremes seem to be doing all the talking. This is the sad story: South Africa's Marxist-Leninist political party, the Economic Freedom Fighters, celebrated its 10th anniversary over the weekend.After the radical group's demagogic leader emphasized, "We are with President Putin... We are...

    As he made his final pitch to voters in western Wisconsin last week, Sen. Ron Johnson told a story about a truck driver who got stuck while navigating a tricky road. The senator said he was driving through Portage when he encountered a traffic snarl caused by the immobile truck. Johnson said he is typically impatient but was not in this case because he witnessed something “heartwarming”: The people of the small community in central Wisconsin sprang into action to help the truck driver get going again. He ended the story with this reveal: “You know, one little point really...

    President Biden again claimed over the weekend that he was detained by South African authorities while trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison in the 1970s — despite admitting just last month that his telling of the story was false. “I got stopped when I was a young senator trying to see Nelson Mandela in South Africa,” Biden said during a forum broadcast Sunday by left-wing outlet NowThis News. “Afterward he heard, and when he got released, he came to see me in Washington and he walked up to me [and] said, ‘Thank you.'” Biden was responding to Jon-Adrian Velazquez,...

    Wisconsin Senate candidate Democrat Mandela Barnes said in 2018 he believes “reducing prison populations is now sexy,” a video unearthed from the Republican National Committee revealed. “I’m happy we are all talking about it,” Barnes told a group about reducing prison populations. “Now that criminal justice reform and reducing prison populations is now sexy — it’s now a thing that leading candidates are talking about… Because ten years ago people would have run away from this issue.”

    Senate Democrat candidate Mandela Barnes has a far-left record that mirrors Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) political agenda as he looks to defeat Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) in the swing state of Wisconsin in November. While Wisconsin voted to elect President Joe Biden in 2020 by less than one percent (49.4-48.8 percent), Barnes is campaigning as a Democrat but has served as a “long-time leader” of the Working Families Party. The organization has positioned itself as a “national left-wing organization responsible for supporting and mainstreaming the most radical ideas and politicians in America,” 1130 WSIN reported.

    Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes has won the state’s Democrat U.S. Senate primary and will face Republican Senator Ron Johnson in the state’s midterm election in November, according to an Associated Press projection. Barnes became the Democrat front runner after his top opponent, Milwaukee Bucks executive Alex Lasry, dropped out of the race with less than two weeks until the primary election. “Thank you. This is the honor of a lifetime. Now, we take the fight to Ron Johnson,” Barnes tweeted after he became the projected winner. “We’re going to the Senate to rebuild the middle class. We’re going to...

    Wisconsin Lt. Governor, Mandela Barnes: Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes said Monday the police shooting of a Black man by Kenosha officers "wasn't an accident," after the man was shot seven times in the back "in front of his children." "This wasn't bad police work," Barnes said in an address Monday. "This felt like some sort of vendetta taken out on a member of our community." Speaking alongside Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, Barnes said "the irony isn't lost on me that Jacob Blake was actually trying to deescalate a situation in his community, but the responding officer didn't feel the...

    “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul,” Nelson Mandela famously said, “than the way in which it treats its children.” By that standard, our society now has the soul of an abusive parent. The pandemic has turned American adults, or at least the ones who make the rules, into selfish neurotics who have been punishing innocent children for over a year—and still can’t restrain themselves. When the pandemic began, the lack of knowledge about Covid-19 justified this behavior. That excuse has vanished. It became clear long ago that the virus is less dangerous to children than the...

    The word “crypto-communist” has a paranoid, McCarthyite connotation. But during the Cold War, numerous communist intellectuals and politicians deliberately concealed their commitment to Marxism-Leninism. Why? To be more successful intellectuals and politicians. A few crypto-communists even managed to become national leaders. Fidel Castro gained power in 1959, but only announced his communism in 1961. Nelson Mandela presented himself as a reasonable democratic reformer. Yet after his death, the African National Congress openly admittedly that Mandela had been on the politburo of the South African Communist Party for decades. Ho Chi Minh joined the Communist Party in 1920, but in 1945...

    The leader of a South African political party has called for the killing of white women and children in a row over the taxi industry. Andile Mngxitama, president of Black First Land First (BLF), was speaking at a rally on the weekend in Potchefstroom near Johannesburg when he made the violent comments. He tells the cheering crowd: 'For each one person that is being killed by the taxi industry, we will kill five white people. 'For every one black person we will kill five white people. ... Mngxitama has since claimed that these comments were taken out of context and...

    Their fear faded as they raced back home, the bottle of Johnnie Walker getting lighter with each turn of the road. Soon, Sindiso Magaqa was clapping and bouncing behind the wheel of his beloved V8 Mercedes-Benz, pulling into familiar territory just before dark. Minutes later, men closed in with assault rifles. Mr. Magaqa reached for the gun under his seat — too late. One of his passengers saw flashes of light, dozens of them, from the spray of bullets pockmarking the doors. The ambush was exactly what Mr. Magaqa had feared. A few months before, a friend had been killed...

    "Strongman politics are ascendant," Barack Obama warned in South Africa. He spoke passionately about "the politics of fear and resentment" at the Mandela Lecture. He worried that we were entering a world, “where might makes right and politics is a hostile competition between tribes and races and religions.” While the media used the remarks to attack Trump's meeting with Putin, Obama had shared a stage with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa who had come to power promising to seize land from white farmers. Ramaphosa was the latest in a series of ANC strongmen, including his predecessor, an alleged rapist, beginning...
