[American Thinker] In 2018, Tucker Carlson highlighted the expropriation of land from White farmers in South Africa. He stated "[a]s land seizures based on skin color shows, South Africa is once again becoming a place where an entire group of people is targeted for discrimination and violence on the basis of their skin color."
Twenty-six years ago, "South Africans engaged in a peaceful revolution. As late as the 1980s commentators predicted that any transition from white minority domination and black majority rule would precipitate a bloody civil war. Instead, in 1994 South Africans replaced president F. W. de Klerk with Nelson Mandela in a free and fair election that astonished the world." Thus, ". . . South Africans of all races voted in the country's first democratic elections, choosing Mandela as their first black president. The inhumane apartheid regime seemed to be miraculously ending peacefully, though much work remained to improve the lives of all South Africans." By the "late 1980s, however, South Africa’s economy was in a deep recession and large segments of the country were becoming ungovernable."
Former president Jacob Zuma (2009-18) "brought the country a reputation for corruption and ineptitude." In fact, in 2018, the World Bank ranked South Africa as the most corrupt country in the world.
In 2018, Hammond and Tupy "in reviewing South Africa's flirtation with the idea of changing its constitution to let the state expropriate farmland without compensation, wrote that South Africa need only look north to Zimbabwe to see the disastrous consequences of this kind of policy." Zimbabwe's former dictator Robert Mugabe gave "the green light to his paramilitary supporters to invade commercial farms, seize some 23 million acres of land and the confiscated farms were resettled with small scale agriculturalists. Many of the new would-be-farmers had no real knowledge of commercial agriculture and many soon returned to subsistence farming. The actual commercial farmers left for other African countries and the result was devastating food shortages in a nation once dubbed the 'bread basket of Africa.'"
I had met a young black entrepreneur last year. He was organizing like minded blacks to purchase these farms to develop. He seemed to think of housing not farming. I believe he felt farming was too much work. The Chinese married into Africans so as to have blood in the game. They also were not restricted on the number of children they could have. I have found the children do not have the bond to China as their parents have.
Tw, ha ha. I have met many thousands of all walks of life. Each has a story to tell and I have a knack of bring out that personal experience. Now that I have been on the Internet I have expanded my contacts all over the world. Just yesterday I talked with an Engineer (at my work) who has traveled the world who now trains young Engineers in environmental related Engineering. Less travel now. Zoom conference calls and on line training. I asked about Russia and he said they are very pro American. The closer you get to Finland they look so American and greatly enjoy conversation with Americans. It is Putin's group(corruption) that they dislike so much there. How long was that conversation? No longer than being at a drive thru say Windy's.
Good example of both mob rule and give a mouse a cookie and he'll want a glass of milk. They did the right thing (if late) and now the mob is thinking to changing laws to legalize theft. And a lot of Americans have learned that vile lesson.
[PJ] During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Friday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) pressed Dr. Anthony Fauci on whether the government should restrict the massive Black Lives Matter protests across the country in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Fauci admitted that crowds full of people not wearing masks would likely spread the virus, but he refused to say whether or not protests would do so. He also refused to make any recommendations on limiting protests, even though he had made many recommendations in the past.
At one point, Fauci even insisted that "there’s no inconsistency" in preventing people from going to work, going to church, and going to school but allowing them to gather in massive crowds to protest.
"Dr. Fauci, do protests increase the spread of the virus?" Jordan began.
Fauci said he could only make a "general statement" about crowds.
"Well, half a million protesters on June 6 alone, I’m just asking, that number of people, does it increase the spread of the virus?" Jordan pressed.
"Crowding together, particularly when you’re not wearing a mask, contributes to the spread of the virus," Fauci responded.
"Should we limit the protesting?" Jordan pressed.
"I’m not sure what you mean," Fauci responded.
"Should government limit the protesting?" the congressman clarified.
Fauci stuttered, "I- I- I don’t think that’s relevant to..."
St Anthony did pretty much the same thing in the 80's with AIDS. By all means do NOT quarantine those actually sick and focus on the groups most likely to come down with it. No, the mantras was everybody is equally likely to get it, and there was even the summer alert that it was an airborne illness and even going out of doors for any amount of time could infect an individual. What a pinhead.

I don't understand his stand on Hydroxochloriquine. I've seen a lot of doctors and studies saying that when combined with zinc it works well. I've seen reports on a slum in India that took it prophylactically and had only 4 or so cases. Too many reports of success to dismiss it as casually as he does.
It's the stance by so many people/entities against HCQ that is bizarre. I am still convinced that Big Pharma is fighting it tooth and nail (and the media has their marching orders because of advertising dollars) because there is no money in it.
And you also have to wonder that if HCQ really works, then the Left/Dems would be without a crisis. I mean, they went nuts when they found out President Trump was taking it. And remember that Congresswoman from Michigan who was pilloried by her own party (D) for praising HCQ and the president as it may have saved her life.
That's the kinda satire that stings because it's true
[Babylon Bee] President Trump, always desiring to be gracious and fair, suggested delaying the election yesterday until the Dems can find a candidate who can form complete, coherent sentences.
"Look, I want this to be fair," Trump said. "Why don't we push this thing off six months or so? That will give the Dems plenty of time to try to find someone who can go toe to toe with me. It won't be easy. There aren't many. But I'm sure they can find a worthy opponent for me to beat."
Trump was praised for the graciousness and compassion of the move.
"I disagree with Trump on everything, but this was really nice of him," said a DNC spokesperson. "We're going back to the drawing board and trying to find someone who can talk and think and all those qualities you really want in a leader."
The Democrats did manage to locate a few candidates who can string sentences together, but sadly they were all accused of sexual assault, so Trump agreed to give them another six months.
