South Africa burning…

leave a comment »

This is  what is actually going on.   This is what the government and the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) do not want you to see, real events that will not be aired on television because the state-controlled television and the African National Congress (ANC) have banned the viewing of protests on television.

After 22 years of leadership,  the ANC has done little to help anyone but themselves and their cronies.   The infrastructure is crumbling, the economy is pitiful,  jobs are scarce,  and the entire country is being turned into a playground of rioters for criminal activities.  The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and Julius Malema have made so many promises that can’t be kept that nothing will improve under his control.   The country is disintegrating before our very eyes because no one will do anything about it except riot.   What would happen if the  95 million Americans no longer in the labor force decide to behave this way?   Obama  (or Hillary,  if we’re that stupid)  would declare martial law and we would swiftly look like so many other nations run by tyrants and maniacal authoritarians.

If Obama loses…

Certain folks  are threatening  to riot.   Farrakhan is helping  throw gasoline on the flames,  as always. Police departments  in the cities most likely to see trouble aren’t doing anything special it appears,  since they were apparently much more worried about what would happen if a black man were elected.

2012 = 1968?

leave a comment »

That’s the title of John Heilemann’s column,  here,  in which he wonders if the Democratic National Convention will be the riot the 1968 one was.   Heilemann is honest enough to tell you that thew movement which claims to be organic and leaderless isn’t without leaders.   But he doesn’t tell you that the real leaders are from various  Soros-funded leftist groups.

As much as I would enjoy seeing the Left blow itself to bits and destroy His Oneness in the ensuing conflagration,  I don’t expect it to happen.   For one thing,  Charlotte, NC is not Chicago,  and is already taking steps  to deal with the potential.   For another,  the citizens of Charlotte will not tolerate what those of  Chicago did.

From Greece to America?

leave a comment »

Denis Boyles has  an excellent post  about the protesters in Greece — and be sure to read the comments section for some truly amazing stuff.

And if you believe such protests won’t come here,  even with ACORN and SEIU and all the other progressive mobs controlled by the Democrats,  consider that we are raising a huge crop of them in places like the  Chicago public school  system.  As you sow,  so shall you reap…

Egypt burning…

leave a comment »

A lot about the riots in Egypt.  Start  with Philip Klein’s piece,  which has a link to a live feed.   John Tabin  reports that the government has blocked the Internet,  against Hillary’s wishes.

I don’t think His Oneness finally getting around to making a live statement makes moot the points  raised here by Charlie Szrom.

The Wall Street Journal has  a good view of the importance of the military,  which has largely avoided day-to-day politics,   something even more important now  that Mubarak has asked his Cabinet to resign so that he can appoint a new one this weekend.   Not to worry,  because VP Joe  Biden doesn’t think Mubarak is a dictator.   Never mind that people have already died.    TIME thinks the U.S. is paralyzed by the fear of Islamists.

I want to know if the “people” are rising up in Egypt and Tunisia,  or whether the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical groups,  who have now come out on the fourth day,  are going to take over.

The Telegraph is  now reporting that the American government has connections to some of the dissidents,  and makes a WikiLeaks connection.  The Sydney Morning Herald  says we’re just addicted to tyrants,  and events are moving too fast for His Oneness to cope with.    I don’t imagine anyone will find the answers from the Davos participants.   Concerns about the Suez Canal are sending oil prices up,  and that will affect us.

And you can now  add Jordan and  Albania to the volatile mix.

UPDATE:  And now Saudi Arabia.   Isn’t it odd that no one is claiming that Israel and the Jews are at fault because of their “occupation” of Palestine?

May Day…

leave a comment »

From lucianne.com,   some video from the San Francisco May Day pro-illegal immigration rally,  showing the taunts and threats directed at the Golden Gate Minutemen and the Pleasanton/Nor Cal Tea Party group,  who stood their ground without flinching,  which is one of many reasons you didn’t see this on national tv.   And I bet you can identify the union members in their bright purple shirts.

Of course,  big media also didn’t tell y0u about  the riots and vandalism in Santa Cruz either,  did they?   But what would you expect on the communist worker’s day?

And didn’t His Oneness warn us about the  dangers of extremists?

UPDATE:  Surprise!  SEIU is going to  boycott Arizona until the immigration law is repealed.
