    On those bleak corners of the Internet that fret about economic growth, social cohesion, and other boring stuff, there’s a common question: What the heck happened in 1971? On one chart after another for the United States, there is a pattern of steady growth and improvement in life that suddenly goes haywire right around 1971. Wage growth stagnated for all but the richest Americans. Inequality explodes. Housing prices began a long upward march that has yet to level out. Fertility rates crashed while illegitimacy surged. And so on, and so on. Many other nations have data that tells a similar...

    In a rare move, Democrat Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) is receiving praise from Republicans after criticizing his own party’s stance on several issues. Fetterman has slammed the Democratic Party’s progressive “Squad” who refuse to condemn the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel. He questioned why the United States hasn’t yet destroyed Hamas, adding that every terrorist killed is "one more step" toward peace. Advertisement The Democrat has stood by his pro-Israel stance, angering members of his party who believe more should be done to help Gaza despite Hamas raping and heinously killing innocent Israelis. “I have a 12-year-old daughter,” Fetterman said....
  • Stop Talking About Proportion’: John Fetterman Defends Israel Against Accusations of Genocide In Fiery Speech

    “Who are we? Who are they really fighting? It’s a group of cowards. They hide in tunnels. They hide behind civilians. They attack, kill, and usually children murder. And they do that. Stop talking about proportion on that. They shot their best shot on October 7th, and they would have taken more lives if they could’ve done that,” Fetterman said in a fiery speech before the group. “But they couldn’t do it. And now let’s also talk about that. Now we’re talking about genocide. And now South Africa is now bringing that kind of a trial. Maybe South Africa, maybe...

    A bulldozer unloads the bodies of Palestinians killed in fighting with Israel and turned over by the Israeli military during a mass funeral in Rafah, Gaza StripThe first hearing in a landmark lawsuit against Israel enters its second day on Friday at the Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ). The case, filed to the top UN court by South Africa last month, claims Israel's siege of Gaza amounts to genocide and breaches the post-Holocaust 1948 Genocide Convention. The Convention gives party countries, which include both Israel and South Africa, the collective right to prevent and stop crimes of genocide. Such...
  • South African ['anti-White racist - "Kill the Boer"] Julius Malema: Hamas [Oct 7 atrocities]. "Did Nothing Wrong"

    South African politician Julius Malema, the president of the Economic Freedom Fighters party, said in a speech delivered at an October 23, 2023 protest outside the Israeli embassy in Pretoria and aired on SABC News (South Africa) that there is nothing wrong with what Hamas did. He said that there is no difference between Nelson Mandela and other anti-Apartheid activists and Hamas, as they all took up guns to fight for their people. Malema said that when people are oppressed, they must stand up for their freedom, and “shoot to kill,” not kiss their enemy. He vowed that when his...

    JOHANNESBURG — Lungile Khoza is at her wits' end. The mother of four has been without water at her home for three weeks, the kids are dehydrated and sick, and she can't run her small hair salon so she's losing money. Khoza, 37, lives in Soweto, a sprawling township of Johannesburg, which is among the areas worst hit by a water crisis in the city. She says there are sometimes government trucks distributing water, but it often runs out before you make it to the front of the line. Then she says, the water seems to cause stomach problems for...

A generation grew up without it and soon so will another. All they will know is ANC rule. And ANC rule has meant racism, violent crime and a regime so corrupt that it can’t keep the lights on, but can ally with Russia, China and Hamas.South Africa is a racist hellhole...

    Thank heavens it wasn't raining last Tuesday morning, as it can do in late autumn in South Africa. It would have meant a drenching for the most unusual ­politician fighting today's election — a 32-year-old farmer's son called Chris Pappas, who is white and gay. Peering through owlish glasses, he was giving a campaign speech to 70 locals in their decaying village hall, a half-day's drive inland from the coastal city of Durban in the sprawling province of KwaZulu-Natal. The building had gaping holes in the tin roof through which you could see the sky. In every window the glass...

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) — The African National Congress party lost its parliamentary majority in a historic election result Saturday that puts South Africa on a new political path for the first time since the end of the apartheid system of white minority rule 30 years ago. With more than 99% of votes counted, the once-dominant ANC had received just over 40% in Wednesday’s election, well short of the majority it had held since the famed all-race vote of 1994 that ended apartheid and brought it to power under Nelson Mandela. The final results are still to be formally declared by the...

    Election Day on May 29 was a tumultuous, wonderful day for South Africa. Thirty years of corruption and ruin under the sole rule of the African National Congress Party came to an end. The ANC, which won 63 percent of the vote in the first democratic election in 1994, and 70 percent in 2004, now only won 40 percent.When the ANC took power in April 1994, South Africa had the strongest economy and the best infrastructure in Africa. We had a plentiful supply of the world’s cheapest electricity and the world’s greatest mineral treasure. The horrible apartheid laws had been...

  • Was the Late Archbishop Desmond Tutu Anti-Israel Or An Anti-Semite? Can a person dislike Israel yet like Jews?

    If Willie Sutton, the bank robber, would instantly have known the answer if asked “Was Archibishop Desmond Tutu anti-Israel or an anti-Semite?” After all, when asked why he robbed banks, Sutton explained, “That’s where the money is.” The iron logic of this bold answer holds the clue to Desmond Tutu’s well-known antipathy to Israel. Why hate Israel rather than any other country? Willie Sutton would say because that’s where the Jews are. If he’d heard that, Tutu’s beloved grin would melt into a grimace. Tugging at his crimson Episcopal cape, he would pontificate that, “The government of Israel is placed...

    At a time when the statues of good people who had done bad things are being torn down, the world must reckon with the mixed legacy of Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu, even in the immediate aftermath of his death. He did much good in fighting apartheid but he also has long history of ugly hatred toward the Jewish people, the Jewish religion and the Jewish state. He not only believed in anti-Semitism, he actively promoted and legitimated Jew hatred among his many followers and admirers around the world. Tutu minimized the suffering of those killed in the Holocaust. He has...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted last August that a drop in the importance of the U.S. dollar was "irreversible"—but there appears to be no sign that the global economy is turning its back on the greenback. "The U.S. Dollar was used in 48% of international payment transactions last year, the highest level in more than a decade. But Brics...," it said next to the graph, which showed the euro making 23.2 percent of transactions and the Chinese yuan way behind at 3.47 percent. "BRICS countries would like their currencies to be used in world trade, but each has a major...

    Moscow has been on a drive to replace the use of the US dollar in international trade, but there are barrels of Russian oil stuck at sea due to issues with paying in alternative currencies. Shipments of Russian Sokol grade crude oil to state-owned Indian Oil Corp, or IOC, have been delayed by payment issues, Reuters reported on Tuesday, citing two sources familiar with the matter. The seller is the state-owned Russian oil company Rosneft. The problem arose because Rosneft unit selling the oil hasn't been able to open a bank account in the United Arab Emirates to receive payments...
