This week-end, Norway experienced a car bomb and a killing spree by a lone gun man. The MSM were quick to label the perpetrator as an ‘extreme, Right-Wing, White male Christian’. If only the MSM were so quick to label Muslim mass killers the way they labelled this guy, because usually they go to great pains not to mention their race or religion – not so for a White person! Now, I don’t know about you, but something about this murderer doesn’t make sense. If he was so anti-Muslim, then why not blow up their neighbourhood? If he was so anti-Muslim, then why not shoot them dead? Instead, he targeted his own government buildings – on a public holiday – and shot his own, Norwegian youth dead. This guy fits the profile of a mass-murderer. He is not an extreme Right-winger as he is pro-homosexual; pro-Israel, and anti-racist – and since when do they support these views. It appears his only intolerance were the Muslims – which he didn’t target in the attack. This guy was abandoned by his father at a young age and therein lies the answer. He targeted and killed the youth, and has not only justified the killings, but rationalised them as well – as only a true split personality can. He also planned this attack for years – not the action of someone who is extremist and violent. However, if the MSM and the liberal government can use him to vilify and label all centre-right people as ‘extreme right-wingers’ then why not? After all, never let a crisis go to waste….Actually, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it came out that he was a left-wing liberal, as so many of these nuts end up being.
|The “Old” Facebook page where no mention of this is made|
SUSPECT identifies himself as “anti-racist, pro-homosexual, pro-Israeli” and attacked Vlaams Belang and the English Defense League on document.no (a website that appears to represent a Norwegian version of American neo-conservatism).
The English language facebook page identifying the killer as a “Christian” & “Conservative” was created AFTER his killing spree was over.
As soon as the killers name was released thousands of people began looking up his facebook page. It is common for people to make hoax pages when someone is in the news. Initially a page in Norwegian appeared bearing the suspect’s name, multiple face shots, and a photo of the suspect in the uniform of a European freemason. Then facebook deleted it. A SECOND page in ENGLISH then appeared bearing the suspect’s name and a single photo. Facebook also quickly deleted it. However the “mainstream” media is gleeful using this second facebook page to demonize Christians and Conservatives.
This was spree killer Anders Behring Breivik’s facebook original profile immediately after his name was released. And on the right a new English language facebook profile that appeared minutes later.
Click of the profiles to see the full sized versions.
Several things have been doctored up to alter the suspects political views. First a section titled “Philosophy” has been added to include “Christian,” and “Conservative.” The media has used this to great lengths.
Secondly, a previous section under the Norwegian term “Annet” is gone. In this former section the suspect identifies his heroes as Winston Churchill and Max Manus, the leader of the Norwegian anti-Nazi resistance. Someone in Norway picking these two men as his heroes would indicate that he is a moderate or centrist. More the middle of the political spectrum than the fringes.
Further, the suspect left the conservative Norwegian Progress Party four years ago and had been posting messages on a website that represents the Norwegian version of a Bush/McCain “neo-con.” Not a “right-winger,” or “ultra-nationalist.” Some European and Russian news outlets have even called him a “white supremacist” and/or “neo-Nazi.”
In fact, here is the website that the suspect most actively posted on and supported. The man who runs it is a Billy Kristol style neo-con. It is called document.no and run by Hans Rustad a Jewish man. Rustad is a former left-wing journalist turned neo-conservative. The website claims that only Muslims immigration should be restricted and that Asians and non-Muslim Africans are “making a positive contribution to Norway.” The website fanatically supports Israel and opposes Norwegian recognition of Palestinian statehood.
Rustad has decided to publish a collection of the suspect’s posts on his website. It is very extensive. None of the comments are extreme or hint at a desire to commit violence.
On one comment, suspect Breivik calls the English Defense League an embarrassment and says it “lacks ideological training.” He attacks the Vlaams Belang as racist and anti-gay. He says Vlaams Belang needs many “reforms” to “reach our level.”
Norwegian police are now saying that the suspect had no known connection to any radical groups.
The media falsely portrayed the radical leftist Jared Laughner, who is Jewish, as a “extreme right-winger” and “anti-Semite.” They portrayed the militant self-described “anti-racist,” bisexual, cross dressing Columbine killers (one of whom was Jewish) as “right-wingers” and “neo-Nazis.” So it was predictable that the media would have a field day with Anders Breivik, since he is right of center in some of his beliefs.
You must know crime is bad in South Africa when two successful game lodges, the Blue Mountain Lodge and Tulani Safari Lodge are forced to close due to a crime wave being committed on visitors and staff at the resorts. The marketing manager of the resorts, Mr Christo Wagenaar, has decided to call it a day after the resorts experienced three attacks by armed robbers in the past month. As all South Africans know, once you’re targeted then it’s only a matter of time before people end up murdered and it’s just not worth it. So, these two resorts will close in August and the local Blacks will lose their jobs – all so that a few criminals can get their jollies by terrorising innocent people. Tourism has fallen in the areas – apparently due to the poorly maintained roads and other infrastructure. That may be a contributing factor, but the more feasible reason would be that tourism has fallen due to the high crime rates experienced in South Africa, with more than 50 murders per day. I don’t know about you, but even myself, an experienced ex-South African, have no desire to return to my homeland. My kids are still traumatised and when given the option to return for a visit later this year, answered with: “Why? We’re not safe there and we’d rather go to Disney”. Out of the mouth of babes…..and Disney it is.

The Blue Mountain Lodge in Hazyview and Tulani Safari Lodge near Phalaborwa have been forced to close due to criminal attacks on staff and patrons.
Christo Wagenaar, marketing manager for Forever Resorts (the owners of the lodges) told News24 there had been three attacks by armed robbers in the past month.
“We’ve had guests being tied up and gagged while the criminals stole precious items such as jewellery, wallets and ipods,” Wagenaar said. “We decided to beef up our security by installing extra lights and security cameras, but this wasn’t enough.”
On Wednesday13 July, after the extra security measures had been but in place, another group of men entered Blue Mountain. After being spotted the men fled.
“We’re grateful that no serious incidents have taken place yet, but we need to look after our clients. So we’ve decided to close these resorts,” Wagenaar said.
He attributes the rise in crime to the decline in tourism in the area. Towns such as Graskop, Sabie and Hazyview are apparently experiencing low tourist activities due to deterioration of roads and other infrastructure.
There are talks of local farmers having an interest in the properties, and Wagenaar said the Forever group is considering selling it. The personnel at Blue Mountain and Tulani will be redeployed at other lodges, or given the option of taking a severance package.
Reservations made until the end of August will still be honoured, after which the properties will be taken out of commission.
“We’d rather take precautions than risk lives,” Wagenaar concluded.
The world has been conned about the ‘climate change’ danger that is apparently imminent….any day now….The great big Carbon Dioxide hoax is hopefully losing momentum around the globe – but unfortunately, not in Australia. This great hoax is all about a TRACE gas, which makes up only 0.04% of the atmosphere, yet this is the gas that is being blamed for causing “dangerous, man-made ‘climate change'”. To put it into context – in a room 3x3x3m, the amount of Carbon Dioxide would fit into a Corn Flakes box. Of the CO2 in the box, 3% can be attributed to man – the other 97% being emitted by Nature. Of the man-made 3% in the box, Australia contributes 1.4% of the total – the rest of the world contributes 98.6%. So, we’re talking about 1.4% of the 3% in the box. Hellooooo!!! Please call me is you’re a ‘believer’ because I have a bridge to sell you!!! In any event, and much to my disgust, Australians are being conned by their own government into believing we can save the world by paying more in taxes. To achieve a measly 5% reduction of our ‘dangerous’ 1.4% CO2 ‘foot-print’ by 2020 – whilst, of course, China and India INCREASE their emissions by 800% in the same 6.5 years – the mighty Australian government is planning to tax us to the tune of $71bn in a 6.5 year period – that’s on top of all the OTHER taxes that we already pay. How’s that for economic hari-kari? Go figure, but you can’t talk sense to Marxists/Greens/Labor. In comparison, the EUs little ‘carbon trading scheme’ scam has collected $4.9bn in it’s first 6.5 years – yet we’re going to save the world by cutting emissions by 5% (of the 1.4% in the Corn Flakes box we emit) for only $71bn – bargain I say! No one must mess with Australia as our government is all powerful that even Nature is on the run! The world’s climate can be controlled by the Australian tax office didn’t you know?
The most surprising thing about the current heat wave affecting much of the United States is that no global warming charlatan is claiming that it is the result of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Since the late 1980s, Americans were assailed with the global warming hoax until, in November 2009, the release of emails between the trolls ginning up false “climate models” were exposed.
These days the term “climate change” is used as a substitute for “global warming”, but fewer of us are fooled by this. Al Gore is planning a last-ditch effort in September to revive the hoax, but that will fail.
Even those in the mainstream media are too embarrassed to report the absurd notion that CO2, a trace gas in the Earth’s atmosphere (0.0380%) vital to all vegetation on the planet has anything to do with climate cycles. A new cooling cycle that kicked in around 1998 is the predictable result of less solar activity.
This is not to say it’s not hot. Heat waves are as common to summer months as blizzards are to winter ones. For those who possess the memory of fungus, there was a heat wave that engulfed the East Coast from July 4 through 9th in 2010. Weather records reflect that heat waves are a natural event, often following or preceding record setting cold waves.
While Al Gore and the last holdouts of the global warming hoax continue to tell us that CO2 emissions (the use of fossil fuels for energy to produce electricity, drive anywhere, and manufacture anything) will destroy the world, the world’s most sophisticated particle study laboratory, CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, will soon announce a finding that will blow the CO2 nonsense to bits.
Dennis T. Avery of the Hudson Institute, reports CERN has demonstrated “that more cosmic rays do, indeed, create more clouds in the earth’s atmosphere.” Cosmic rays are subatomic particles from outer space. More clouds means that less of the sun’s warmth reaches the Earth’s surface.
This completely overturns the torrent of lies that the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has been churning out for decades. The IPCC’s scientists went into full panic mood as a new cooling cycle asserted itself in 1998.
As Avery points out, the IPCC scientists had deliberately ignored “the Medieval Warming (950-1200 AD), the Roman Warming (200 BC-600BC) or the big Holocene Warmings centered on 6,000 and 8,000 BC.” There was also a Little Ice Age from 1300 to 1850 to account for as well.
While the global warming crowd has been telling everyone that they must stop burning coal, using oil or natural gas, and “reduce our carbon footprint”, a recent volcanic eruption in Iceland, in just four days, negated every government-mandated effort to control or reduce CO2 emissions worldwide for the past five years! When Mt. Pinatubo erupted in 1991, it put so much smoke and other gases in the atmosphere that it cooled the Earth’s temperatures for a few years until they dissipated.
Meanwhile, the Environmental Protection Agency is frantically issuing new rules and regulations to reduce the CO2 emissions from utilities and manufacturing facilities before the public realizes that its actual goal is to kill the U.S. economy by increasing the cost of electricity and everything else. It is insanely trying to shut down the mining of coal, while other elements of the Obama regime are trying to stop any drilling for oil.
Unable to scare everyone with the global warming hoax, new horrors are being invented, from ocean acidification to the claim that the atmosphere is being overloaded with nitrogen. Relax, there’s four times more nitrogen in the atmosphere than oxygen and it’s no big deal.
The Greens think you’re stupid
Americans need to be aware that major environmental organizations such as the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth are desperate to maintain the fictions required to deprive the U.S. of the energy it needs to function.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg just gave $50 million to the Sierra Club to support its “Beyond Coal” campaign. Bloomberg actually thinks it’s a good thing the Sierra Club has managed to stop 150 coal-burning plants from being built. Meanwhile, during the current heat wave, providers of electricity are worrying whether they can continue to meet the increased demand for it. Coal provides 50% of all the electricity we use in America.
How stupid or evil do you have to be to stop building the plants that provide electricity at a time when the population and the demand for it is rising? Must America become a third world nation with rolling blackouts and brownouts?
Friends of the Earth are in a panic that Republicans might actually get the U.S. government to cut back on the insane spending that has put the nation on the edge of sovereign default. Lately they’re claiming that Majority Leader, Eric Candor (R-VA) “is threatening to sink the American economy and undermine environmental protections so that his wealthy friends, including big oil corporations, can keep sitting on their cushions.”
That’s the same Big Oil that hasn’t been able to build a single new refinery in the U.S. since the 1970s. That’s the same Big Oil that has seen ten oil rigs leave the Gulf of Mexico since the May 2010 Obama “moratorium” for drilling sites in Egypt, Congo, French Guiana, Liberia, Nigeria, and Brazil. They took a lot of jobs and revenue with them.
If you wanted to destroy America, all you have to do is make it impossible to access several century’s worth of its own huge reserves of coal and the billions of barrels of oil inland and offshore that would, indeed, make America more energy independent.
The next time anyone speaks about “sustainability”, they are talking about turning out the lights and emptying the highways of America. The next time anyone talks about “the environment”, they mean the same thing.
So, remember, it’s just a heat wave. It will end just like all the others and, in a few months, we will all be talking about the blizzards.
For the readers who don’t know who Julius Malema is – he is the South African ANC Youth League President. At age 30, he’s supposed to be setting an example for the Black youth in South Africa. However, the ANCYL is a youth league in name only – they are actually radical communists hiding behind the youth tag facade. Julius – or Juju as we affectionately call him – is a very dangerous, evil, racist little man. He reminds me of Idi Amin. Since coming to the fore as the ANCYL President, he’s managed to turn everyone in SA who isn’t Black, against him. White’s hate him as he preaches hate speech against them. One of his favorite songs is ‘Kill the Boer (farmer)’ and he was recently taken to court about this. He has also been calling for Blacks to forcefully take land away from White farmers (ala Zimbabwe style – did you know that Mugabe is his hero?) and calling for the mines to be nationalised. But what is most surprising, is that this fine, caring, upstanding YL President – who calls on the poor Blacks to take what they want – is a millionaire many times over. Yes, evil Capitalism that he keeps dancing and singing about has made him pretty rich. No tin shack for him! No, he gets to live in one of THE most expensive and exclusive suburbs of Johannesburg, because, according to him, the poor Blacks don’t mind if their leaders are rich. He also owns a farm and numerous expensive vehicles. His Black followers – many of whom should be extremely disillusioned by the ANC because of their non-delivery – follow him around like the sheeple they are. You see, they love all the nonsense that comes out of his mouth. He appeals to the disgruntled youth – millions of unemployed youth – who want nothing more than to take from the Whites because they want what they have – without working for it. Malema taps into this rich source of support and the ANC government know exactly what he’s doing…and condone it. Malema is only carrying out their instructions because he’s too dumb to come up with this attack on his own. And how does Juju justify his lifestyle and his money, whilst his followers scratch in the dirt for food? The following quote should give you a clue into his stupidity and then you may understand why I say he’s not very clever (apart from double failing most of his Year 12 subjects!):
“One of the things I’ve learnt in my short life in politics is the ability to live in the conditions of capitalism while fighting it and defeating it,” he told reporters in Johannesburg.
|Man-boy Juju Malema|
Johannesburg – It was nobody’s business where he got his money from – and his supporters did not mind his lavish lifestyle, ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema said on Wednesday.
“One of the things I’ve learnt in my short life in politics is the ability to live in the conditions of capitalism while fighting it and defeating it,” he told reporters in Johannesburg.
Malema had called a media briefing to respond to a Sunday Independent report at the weekend that he was building himself a R16m house in the posh Johannesburg Sandown suburb.
First he said the news report only existed in “the imaginations of right-wing, narrow-minded and obsessed white people”.
Then he told a journalist who asked where he got his money from: “It’s none of your business… you must mind your own business.”
‘Not accountable to media’
He was a private citizen and not accountable to the media, said the African National Congress Youth League leader.
If the SA Revenue Service were to investigate him about the reported Sandown house, following a complaint from the Democratic Alliance, he would co-operate fully.
He added he was confident his taxes were in order, before launching into an attack against “ruthless capitalism”.
“If you are a capitalist, you are an exploiter.”
Asked how he justified his own expensive lifestyle – he lives in Sandton and drives a Mercedes Benz – Malema responded that poor people did not mind if their leaders were rich.
He boasted that he was “the only remaining leading political figure in the country who gets welcomed in the squatter camps”.
“In this country, there are some amongst the poor who are saying Cyril Ramaphosa must be the president. He’s a multi-millionaire.
“Some amongst the masses are saying Tokyo Sexwale must be president. He’s rich. They don’t care about his money, our people don’t care about our money. What they care about is political consciousness, the will to liberate them,” said Malema.
‘I remain poor’
“It’s not about where we stay. Our people know that very well. It’s not about the type of shoes we wear. That is petty. Our people want the political will and the ability to act and that is what we are doing.”
Malema said he considered himself to be poor, because his house in Sandton and his car were owned by the bank.
“My definition of rich is those who own the means of production, I do not own…
“Instead of being rich, I remain poor but I’m creditworthy…
“That house you [the media] always make a noise about in Sandton – not the one you allege I’m building – it’s owned by Absa. And if I fail to pay it, for sure, Maria Ramos [Absa group chief executive] would be very happy she’s taking a house from a man who is leading a nationalisation campaign, because she does not want nationalisation.”
Negative media coverage of him was all part of a drive to undermine the agenda he represented.
‘I would surrender my land’
“I represent nationalisation of mines, expropriation of land, decentralisation of development, free education, the liberation of the working class.”
The ANCYL would only meet with the Chamber of Mines to discuss nationalisation if the chamber agreed to hold the meeting in a poor rural village, so that the mining bosses could “appreciate where we’re coming from”.
On land expropriation, Malema supported it if it happened in the public’s interest.
He would even give up his Sandton house or his farm if land expropriation on those properties were to be taken in public interest.
“I’ve got a house here in Sandton. If tomorrow they say, that house, there is a need for a street to pass there and therefore they are expropriating it, I would not have a problem.
“I’ve got a farm with cattle… if I go home and they say they want to build a school, if it is in public interest, I would surrender it.”
But if the government wanted to give the land to “an individual”, Malema would not hand it over.
“We are talking about expropriation of land for public interest and public purpose. Not for individual benefit, not for political leadership benefits. That is anarchy. We will never allow that.”
Can you imagine being 9 years-old and watching how two savages rampage through your house whilst threatening to hang your father? Well, the two savages lied, because what the 9-year old didn’t know was that they had already stabbed and killed his father outside. They ransacked the house, looking for money. Money they knew his father had in the house because he’d sold 10 pigs two weeks previously. An inside job. When are White farmers going to learn not to trust their Black help? When are White farmers going to go to the White squatter camps and find some White men and women willing to work on their farms instead of hiring Blacks? Today, a 9 year-old boy is an orphan and traumatised beyond imagination, having found the bloody body of his father. It’s a wonder that his life was spared. At least that is something to be grateful for. And another White farmer is murdered. What’s the latest figures? Are we over the 4000 dead farmers since 1994 ? Well, we’re certainly pretty near and no one says a thing….
Johannesburg – A 9-year-old boy has told of his night of terror on a smallholding at Zuurbekom near Westonaria, during which he discovered the body of his murdered father.
“They said they were going to hang him. They lied,” he said after the ordeal.
Police suspect that robbers assaulted Zoltán Toth with a pick axe and that he bled to death. He would have turned 74 on Wednesday.
“We heard how the dog barked at someone outside in the yard at 19:00,” the boy recounted.
His name is being withheld as he is an underage witness in a criminal case.
Toth, a Hungarian, went to see what it was and the boy stayed behind and looked through the kitchen window.
There were two men – one with a firearm and another with a knife.
“One pointed the firearm at me but I locked the door and hid.”
The boy said one of the attackers broke a window with a stone and unlocked the door from inside. Toth was still gone and had the only cellphone with him.
“I hid behind the door and they looked for me for some time. The men said they would hang him [Toth] if I didn’t come out.”
One of the men found him behind the door and wanted to know where Toth had hidden the money.
“I told them to look in the cupboards but they didn’t find anything.”
After a long search, the men found a hidden safe which they broke open. They warned the boy that they would shoot him if he left the house, and that they would return later.
‘Scared and alone’
“I was very scared and alone. I didn’t know what to do. I waited for him [Toth] to come back and at 23:00 decided to watch TV.
“I fell asleep just after 04:00 but woke up a little while later, at about 05:00.”
When it started to become light, he went outside to call for help, but found his father’s blood-stained body about 10 metres from the kitchen door.
He called an employee who called the neighbours.
Ilona Katalin Papp, who moved from Hungary to South Africa a few years after Toth in the late 1960s, said he had sold about 10 of his pigs two weeks ago and that was why his murderers had known he had money.
Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said Toth presumably bled to death after he was attacked with a pick axe.
“The suspects stole a considerable amount of money and fled.”
Toth’s wife, Angelina, died in 2005.
Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya are suffering their worst drought in 60 years. Remember Live Aid from 1985? That ‘global’ concert which raised millions in aid for the Ethiopian drought relief? It was so successful that Band Aid charity co-founder, Bob Geldof was honorary knighted by the Queen! Wow. Well, guess what folks? Yip – they need our
money help again. Pictures of starving babies are being broadcast all over the world so that we can once again feel sorry for the people from the Horn of Africa – which is suffering from drought ……again. Now, call me cold, but those pictures just don’t do anything for me. You see, being raised in Africa, I understand the African mentality of give, give and give. And every time the West just gives, gives and gives. Isn’t it wonderful? Who helps the West when they have a drought? Well, they help themselves. But not Africa because the West thinks they don’t know how, so of course they sit back and let the West take over their problems. Let’s give some facts about how the West just isnt’ helping by throwing money at it. In 1985 the Ethiopian population was 41 million. Today, 25 years later, with all that suffering and continuing droughts, the population has fallen to just…….oops, I mean, the population has doubled to 83 million! Nature is trying to balance the books and the stupid West keeps fighting Nature with paper! Just let it happen people. Once again we will feed this generation and keep them alive long enough to produce the next generation so that we can feed them too. Just where does it end? How many billions more $$$$ does this problem need? Oh, and as for the the rest of Africa coming to Ethiopia’s aid – forget it! The stupid West keeps throwing money whilst the rest of Africa parties. How stupid are we???
No African country has offered a donation to help drought victims in the Horn of Africa outside of those affected, it has emerged.
Despite the continent’s biggest economies having previously made generous contributions to aid efforts in Haiti and Japan, there has been little response from them so far to what aid agencies are calling the worst drought in 60 years.
Million-pound donations have been sent to the World Food Programme by the US, France, Germany and the EU. Kenya and Sudan, countries in the affected region, have also contributed.
UN officials said the World Food Programme had received 60 per cent of the $500 million (£300 million) it appealed for to help save the lives of an estimated 10 million people. But to date, there has been no announcement of aid sent to the region by any of the major African economies, such as South Africa, Nigeria, Angola and Tanzania.
So far, the British Government has pledged £38 million in food aid to Ethiopia and the British public has donated £13 million to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s East Africa appeal. Today, Andrew Mitchell, the International Development Secretary, will announce an additional £52.25 million package of support for the region.
South Africa has a grain surplus of 40,000 tons. Contacted by The Daily Telegraph this week, Clayson Monyela, South Africa’s foreign affairs ministry spokesman, said the country usually channelled aid through charities. He did not answer questions about its response to the latest crisis. An official with the Angolan foreign affairs ministry said that he was still waiting for information about his country’s response.
Jean Ping, the African Union’s chairman, said the Ugandan-led AU mission in Somalia was stepping up security to ensure aid gets through to those in need. The AU’s High Representative for Somalia, the former Ghanaian president Jerry John Rawlings, has also been told to “sensitise” African nations to provide financial and material support.
Michael O’Brien-Onyeka, Oxfam’s regional campaigns policy manager for East and Central Africa, said it was “disappointing” that African states insist on “African solutions for African problems” with regard to Libya but fail to respond to droughts and famines.
“It’s a general malaise on the continent, the culture that humanitarian responses should be left to Western countries,” he said. “You don’t have to be a first-world country to respond to your brothers’ needs. This could have been a good opportunity for African countries to practise what they preach.”
Heavy rain in Somalia has added to the misery of those looking for help: too little and too late for much of their livestock.
“When you are hungry, cold is a killer, and the people here are starving and helpless,” said Batula Moalim Ahmed, an elderly mother, who called for plastic sheeting for shelter, as well as for food and medicine.
The USA government is paying their own Defence forces bribe money to recruit anyone who isn’t White. You see, the USA government has decided that they don’t like their armed forces in the hands of 71% Whites. Apparently, they want more diversity, but I’m sure, deep down, the real reason is that the US government is tired of all the White men and women being maimed and killed in war and want to spread the burden around! So really, we should look on this bribe money as a blessing and thank them for their consideration. The Hispanic, Black and Asian Americans need to step on up and also start
bleeding protecting their country. I’m tired of our young White men and women dying – and so too is the USA government it seems! Come on minorities! There’s money to be made and your entrance qualifications are sure to be easier than the White folk! The USA government is prepared to overlook your incompetency as long as your skin color is the right hue! Come on minorities – come die for your country like the Whites. Step on up. The line is right over here…..Don’t all rush at once now, y’all.
The Air Force Academy has a plan and a $1 million budget to make the school more diverse, but no numerical goal that describes what diverse looks like.
Adding more cadets from minorities groups to the academy’s population has been a goal for years. The Board of Visitors, the school’s oversight body, was told Friday that the school has a new plan, which includes diversity training for employees, stepping up minority recruitment and training “inclusion ambassadors” who will promote diversity at the academy.
“The good thing is we’re doing something about it,” said Lt. Gen. Mike Gould, academy superintendent.
The academy’s student body is 71 percent white, which is similar to its sister academies for Navy and Army, and close to the national population average.
But the academy wants to see gains in the number of black and Hispanic cadets on the campus, who make up a combined 16 percent of the student body, well below their share of the national population.
But the Air Force is staying away from quotas.
“Metrics have always been a tough thing for all the services,” Lt. Gen. Darrell Jones, an Air Force personnel officer from the Pentagon told the board, which advises Congress and President Obama on academy matters.
The Air Force put money into the academy program this year, adding $1 million to the program in 2011 – doubling the academy’s diversity budget. Much of the cash is being spent on recruiting in black, Hispanic and Asian neighborhoods. The idea is that attracting more minority applicants will gradually grow the academy’s minority population.
Still, some board members fear that the program lacks clear goals because it doesn’t set racial quotas.
“Not having those objectives and goals is hurting us,” said board member Alfredo Sandoval, a 1982 academy graduate who is a managing partner of the Private Investment Group.
Jones said numbers alone, though, won’t do the job.
“The goal is to have a diverse population find success in the military,” he said.
When the US government is choking financially, the
Black African American people suffer. Why? Because most are dependent on welfare and many more are employed by the government. So, when the government is tight for money, benefits and federal jobs are the first on the chopping board. Blacks are 25 percent of the employees at Treasury and Veterans Affairs, 31 percent of the State Department, 37 percent of Department of Education employees and 38 percent of Housing and Urban Development. They are 42 percent of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., 55 percent of the employees at the Government Printing Office and 82 percent at the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (that stat is scary). Obama has managed to tank the US economy even worse than I thought he could – seems like his puppet master, George Soros, has done his work quite well. Obama has therefore managed to decimate the ‘Black Middle Class’ (however that class is defined) and they now have a median net worth of just $2,170. Yet, despite all of his incompetence, 95% of them will vote for him again in 2012 because he’s not White. It’s almost like they’re cutting their own nose to spite their face….Anyhow, the 2012 election is going to be interesting. The GOP nominee will most likely go to Rick Perry from Texas. Although not the best Conservative, he’ll at least do a better job than Obama – and he’s not seen as a ‘tea party radical’ by the all important swing voters. What the USA needs is a Tea Party supporter to be President to turn the country around, but they’ve been demonised by the liberals so as to seem radical to the gullible. If Perry tips his hat into the race then Obama can start packing. In fact, I’ll even help him!
“The Disappearing Black Middle Class” ran the headline over the Chicago Sun-Times story. And the statistics from the Economic Policy Institute were indeed sobering.
In 2007, best year of the Bush era, white households had a median net worth of $134,280, compared with $13,450 for black households.
By 2009, the median net worth for white households had fallen 24 percent to $97,860. For black households, it had plummeted 83 percent to $2,170, a near wipeout.
As Algernon Austin of EPI’s Program on Race, Ethnicity and the Economy put it, “In 2009, for every dollar of wealth the average white household had, black households had two cents.”
One explanation for this surely is the wave of foreclosures on subprime mortgages, a large share of which were held by African-Americans.
But while unemployment among white men has surged in the Great Recession, among black men it has hit 16 percent, the highest level since the Department of Labor began to keep records in 1972.
Ominously, things are likely to get worse, because Bill Clinton’s assertion, “The era of big government is over!” is today palpably true.
Not only in Wisconsin, Ohio and New Jersey, run by Republicans, is this so, but in liberal mega-states like New York and California. There, Govs. Andrew Cuomo and Jerry Brown run the show, and government payrolls are also being slashed and government pensions pared back.
From Greece to Portugal to Ireland to Italy, an age of austerity has begun. And now that age is about to begin in Barack Obama’s Washington.
Why should this adversely affect black America?
Because not only are African-Americans disproportionately the beneficiaries of federal programs, from the Earned Income Tax Credit to aid for education and student loans, they are even more over-represented in the federal workforce than they are on state payrolls.
Though 10 percent of the U.S. civilian labor force, African-Americans are 18 percent of U.S. government workers. They are 25 percent of the employees at Treasury and Veterans Affairs, 31 percent of the State Department, 37 percent of Department of Education employees and 38 percent of Housing and Urban Development. They are 42 percent of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., 55 percent of the employees at the Government Printing Office and 82 percent at the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency.
