The meaning of the word “Nefarious”

Please read the piece below:

I am convinced that Bantu Holomisa knows exactly what he is saying when he uses this specific word in relationship with the ANC. I however, don’t believe he is saying it for the right reasons.

And I am not even going to try and understand where he comes from, because I do not see the West as evil, rather the opposite….

For this piece I am more interested in the morality of the ANC.

Definition of 'nefarious'

1. (adj) nefarious, villainous extremely wicked
"nefarious schemes"; "a villainous plot"; "a villainous band of thieves"

Definition of 'nefarious'

1. (adverb) nefarious
wicked in the extreme; abominable; iniquitous; atrociously villainous; execrable; detestably vile

And the one I like:

The word nefarious has its origin in Latin. It was taken from the word nefārius. This was obtained from nefās which means crime or transgression. The word nefās is formed of two parts: ne and fās. The first part 'ne' means 'not' and the second part 'fās' means divine law. Nefarious is an adjective. Someone or something that is nefarious is known as an extremely wicked person or thing. The quality possessed by such an individual is termed as nefariousness. For example: a nefarious plot. It is nasty plot.

Not divine law…… there is a thought…….

divine law - a law that is believed to come directly from God, or to put it differently for those that do not believe in a God, a natural law, - a rule or body of rules of conduct inherent in human nature and essential to or binding upon human society

It is interesting to read the articles and comments in the daily newspapers the last week or so, and see how the ANC brethren are spinning the story.

Now for the sake of clarity, also read:

By their friends you shall know the rapist of Africa

A lot of people got money from the Gaddafi regime, for various reasons, either for performances, or for re-elections.

Any money received from Gaddafi should be considered blood money.

If it is true that the ANC got in the region of $300 million from Gaddafi, our esteemed ANC took away money from the people of Libya.

Any bets that the ANC will even consider doing the right thing?

I am at this very moment ashamed to be a South African.

UDM says South African should not have voted in favour


On becoming the member of the United Nation Security Council, South Africa received the support of the African Union (AU) and other developing countries, among others. Recently the AU took a resolution to engage the Libyan government on its use of military force on innocent civilians.

The AU's resolution is opposed to any form of military intervention by the International Community in Libya since such actions adversely affect innocent civilians the most.

President Zuma is among the panel African leaders who are tasked with implementing the AU's resolution. The AU's approach is in line with South Africa' s foreign policy, which was started by former President Nelson Mandela in 1994, of seeking negotiated solutions to African countries' complex problems (Burundi, Congo ,etc,) over short-sighted and destructive military interventions.

Despite this well documented foreign policy position and the AU's resolution on this matter, President Zuma and his ilk seem to have been duped into abandoning South Africa's foreign policy stance and the AU's resolution by voting in favour of the dubious United Nations Security Council's Resolution Number 1973, which the Western is currently exploiting in its use of military intervention in Libya for their own nefarious objectives.

The Libyan conflict emanates from the Libyan people's desire for political liberties and democratic reforms. However, we have seen the unfortunate backing of the rebels by the West in this conflict by supplying them with arms such as anti-aircraft weapons, and so on. Needless to say that by voting in favour of the UN Security Council's Resolution Number 1973, South Africa has also sided with the rebels in this conflict, long before the quest for a negotiated solution has begun.

This position is a smokescreen for regime change. Elsewhere in countries like Bahrain, people are calling for regime change, but the same Western Superpowers have chosen to side with the ruling regime against the wishes of the people of Bahrain. It this kind of hypocrisy that makes us cringe as a Nation.

The ANC Government, which has been heavily funded by Gaddafi, owes the Nation an explanation whether our Country is going to be used to achieve the nefarious objectives of certain powers. The ANC Government should also explain if this is what they voted for in the UN Resolution, in light of recent militarily interventions by the West, and whether they have been briefed by their newly acquired allies about their military intervention, which is going to cause untold damage on the lives of the Libyan people. Or were they just used as voting cattle? Or should we deduce that this is an indication that they have now dumped their renowned funder, Gaddafi, in favour of wealthier funders from the West?

Genocide of Farmers as Noted by President of Genocide Watch.

The following is a transcript of part of the Carte Blanche television program on the escalating genocide of Boer & White farmers that they did back in 2003. The following excepted text is the portion featuring the analysis of Dr. Gregory Stanton: the President of Genocide Watch. A notable expert on the topic.

Dr Gregory H. Stanton (Genocide Watch): “It seems to me a very troubling statistic that the murder rate of the farmers, the Boer farmers, is about four times as high as is for the rest of the population”.

Dr. Stanton is a retired American professor of law who heads Genocide Watch, the organization that co-ordinates the international campaign to end genocide.

We met him in Berlin where he was attending a conference in remembrance of the Holocaust.

He believes that, apart from crime, there's also another motive.

Gregory: “There's a motive of hatred, that these are hate crimes, that people are tortured, that they're murdered in ways that are de-humanizing”.

Not only does Stanton believe farm murders are hate crimes, but he's also recently warned the world that the white farmers in South Africa could be facing genocide. Twenty years ago he witnessed the horrors of the Cambodian genocide.

Gregory: “I realized, I think, from that point forward that I would spend the rest of my life working to stop genocide and to bring those who committed it to justice”.

Years later, that's exactly what he did. He was the person responsible for drafting the UN resolutions that created the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

Stanton has identified eight stages of genocide by comparing the history of genocides in the 20th century. He describes it as a process, rather than an act that could take many years to be effected.

Gregory: “The third stage is really where you begin the downward spiral into genocide and that is the stage of de-humanization. It is where you treat the other people as though they're less than human”.

A scene like this, he says, should have the alarm bells ringing.

This farmer was ambushed at his farm gate, shot in the back and left to die. His vehicle was burnt out and his body displayed with the lights and number plates.

Gregory: “These are clearly hate crimes. It's such a symbolic expression of de-humanization. They're so treating him like a thing.”

It's often thought that a whole group needs to be killed before it's defined as genocide, but that's not the case.

Stanton says the more than one thousand four hundred farmers killed in South Africa could be classified under the Genocide Convention.

Gregory: “Even if it's a few hundred individuals who have been targeted, that is an act of genocide under the convention.”

However, Stanton warns that South Africa has already slipped into the fifth stage of the process, or what he refers to as polarization.

Gregory: “Extremists attempt to drive out the center, they attempt to divide the world into just two camps; into us and them.”

And from there on, he says, it's a small step to the seventh stage when the actual genocide takes place and where the word genocide is used.

Gregory: “People who commit this crime often think amazingly enough that they're purifying their society in some way or another, you know - they're getting rid of insects or some kind of less than human form of life.”

A civil war is potentially more likely, says Moolman.

Prof Neels Moolman: “I don't think we are there yet, but I think that we are speeding to that point very fast if the radicals are not controlled properly.”

Gregory: “They will say that the genocide was really just a civil war as though a civil war somehow was an opposite of genocide when in fact many genocides occurred during civil wars.” Link to transcript.

The facts that Stanton relates demonstrate that a genocide is taking place & no amount of gratuitous denial from a certain contrarian feathered fowl will change those facts & continuous denial simply enables the situation to get worse & spiral out of control.

Cops held for stealing safe

18829-south-african-police-stand-guard-outside-the-department-of-eThese are the people responsible for law and order in South Africa.  The people you are supposed to allow in your home to inspect your gun safe in the unlikely event that you actually managed to obtain a licence to have one.  They might arrive at your abode to “investigate” a theft, which translated to non-Africanised English means they scout your home for valuables so their buddies could come pay you a surprise visit later to alleviate you of the burden of your prized possessions.  Numerous cases of police members (even in uniform) raiding homes this way.

So what happens when a community member reports a locked safe and steel saw cutter found in a field?  The police arrives and takes the items away for evidence, right?  Wrong.  They take the items away, but only the steel saw cutter is handed in as evidence.

Now here I am thinking – evidence to what?  What do you possibly note on the case docket as the crime?  A discarded power tool found in the bushes?  Fly tipping might be a crime in first world countries – it certainly isn’t in South Africa (and even if it was, the chances of the police doing anything about it, is zero as they can’t even be bothered to investigate aggravated assault).  That’s like handing in a spent cartridge as evidence to a murder case – there’s just no trace of a body or weapon.  But such is the utter stupidity of these hoodlums.  And that is what makes them so dangerous and arrogant.  They are too thick to have the slightest bit of common sense or ability to perform basic logic operations.

Other officers are then alerted that there is no trace of the locked safe in the “discarded power tool and stolen locked safe found in a field” case.  They find the police officers (read criminals) originally “investigating” the crime in a back yard where they have already opened the safe with another power tool borrowed from another community member.

The contents of the safe have been handed in as evidence.  No, not really, but you can see where this is going.

You are forgiven for not knowing why so many brutal murder cases in South Africa remain unsolved.  But now you know the nature of the beast…

SA Police lost 20,000 guns

_51594267_policeThere you have it.  Citizens owning legal firearms are being disarmed by law, while the South African Police lost 20,000 firearms since 2004.  Now “lost” here can mean many things.  Anything from drunken cops leaving their guns in the local shebeen to corrupt cops selling firearms voluntarily handed in by legal gun owners.

The police described the report as “worrying” – not incompetent, corrupt, inept, but worrying.  The best part – no report of how many officials have been criminally prosecuted as a result (as required by law).  If this doesn’t stink of communist regime to you, you probably won’t notice a turd on your upper lip.

Annelize van Wyk of the ANC said that laws “seemed” to be stricter for civilians than police officers.  More communist wordplay – “seemed” to be.  Annelize, just remove that turd from your lip.

Diane Kohler Barnard of the Democratic Alliance said that “I am convinced that many murders are committed with police weapons”.  She is correct of course.  This is of course over and above the crimes committed by cops themselves, with around 10,000 of them in jail.

Cream of the crop

4092861714You can only laugh.  The only issue nowadays is whether you are laughing at the blatant arrogance and corruption of the most senior officials in South Africa (no use getting upset, because ministers in Parliament will tell you that if you don’t like it, you should leave the country) or idiots still talking about “progress” since 1994.

Here you have Bheki Cele, National Police Commissioner, who was found guilty of maladministration and improper conduct by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela (probably because she was not in on the deal) in a R500m lease for police headquarters in Pretoria.

So what does Cele do?  He organises a raid of the Public Protector’s office by his crime “intelligence” unit.  Sounds like Zuma telling the world that the National Prosecuting Authority reports to him, during his corruption trial.  And demanding respect as president.

I wonder how long this news item will be in the public domain before it is quietly squashed.

Malema on Mines, and- make more babies!

Hat Tip: Ozzie Saffa

We've heard all the nationalisation guff before, but the "reproduction is revolutionary" one is brand spankin' new.

Does he actually think anyone in South Africa needs to be told to make more babies?


Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League president Julius Malema has said his organisation wanted 60% of Anglo American, City Press reported on Sunday.

Malema was speaking at a gala dinner in Nelspruit on Friday.

He said Anglo could do with the remaining 40% as it pleased.

Malema predicted that the nationalisation of mines would still happen in his lifetime.

"Share that delicious piece of cake. Don’t eat it all alone!" he said to loud applause.

Malema said unemployment was the cause of recent political unrest, and nationalisation was the way to solve it.

The youth league did not advocate taking over all white businesses, it just wanted a fair share, he said.

"If we don’t do it (nationalisation), we’ll always stay poor. The Oppenheimers don’t need to worry because we only want 60% of Anglo American’s money," he said.

Malema said Anglo had agreed to give 51% of its mining interests to black people in Botswana and asked why the company did not want to do the same in South Africa. He accused the mining giant of thinking black people were idiots and of abusing the black population in South Africa.

Malema said political freedom was useless without economic freedom.

"We’re now economic freedom fighters. The revolution started to get food. We don’t have to apologise, or be shy about this struggle."

He urged a full hall at the Ehlanzeni District Municipality building to prevent the revolution from losing steam by having as many babies as possible.

"Having babies is a revolutionary thing. You must reproduce!"

Anglo American was not available for comment.


"Tunisia Day"

by Moeletsi Mbeki

South Africa: Only a matter of time before the bomb explodes

I can predict when SA’s "Tunisia Day" will arrive. Tunisia Day is when the masses rise against the powers that be, as happened recently in Tunisia. The year will be 2020, give or take a couple of years. The year 2020 is when China estimates that its current minerals-intensive industrialisation phase will be concluded.

For SA, this will mean the African National Congress (ANC) government will have to cut back on social grants, which it uses to placate the black poor and to get their votes. China’s current industrialisation phase has forced up the prices of SA’s minerals, which has enabled the government to finance social welfare programmes.

The ANC inherited a flawed, complex society it barely understood; its tinkerings with it are turning it into an explosive cocktail. The ANC leaders are like a group of children playing with a hand grenade. One day one of them will figure out how to pull out the pin and everyone will be killed.

A famous African liberation movement, the National Liberation Front of Algeria, after tinkering for 30 years, pulled the grenade pin by cancelling an election in 1991 that was won by the opposition Islamic Salvation Front. In the civil war that ensued, 200000 people were killed.

The former British prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, once commented that whoever thought that the ANC could rule SA was living in Cloud Cuckoo Land. Why was Thatcher right? In the 16 years of ANC rule, all the symptoms of a government out of its depth have grown worse.

  • Life expectancy has declined from 65 years to 53 years since the ANC came to power;
  • In 2007, SA became a net food importer for the first time in its history;
  • The elimination of agricultural subsidies by the government led to the loss of 600000 farm workers’ jobs and the eviction from the commercial farming sector of about 2,4-million people between 1997 and 2007; and
  • The ANC stopped controlling the borders, leading to a flood of poor people into SA, which has led to conflicts between SA’s poor and foreign African migrants.

Gauteng train set alight

SA Mandela MarxThis is the same old tactics employed by the so-called “oppressed peoples”.  If they don’t like something, they burn it down.  They did the same with schools built by the “evil Apartheid regime”.  And then later want to complain about sub-standard education.

So commuters are caught on the train without valid tickets.  What do they do?  They burn it down, resulting in damage of R12m.  No wonder South Africa’s infrastructure is falling apart.  No clean drinking water in dozens of towns, because the infrastructure built up and maintained for decades is being destroyed by incompetent, corrupt vermin.

The best part of course is the nonsense spewed by the Gauteng Manager of Metrorail: “We cannot tolerate such actions from commuters that refuse to pay for services and we will intensify our efforts to work with the police and the community at large to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested”.  Why were these thugs not arrested on the scene?  What do you have to wait for?

The reality is nobody will be arrested.  White taxpayers will pay for whatever damage and this is the last you will hear of this incident.

Who benifit from the current ANC government?

There was a time when I really had a problem with Australia, for instance, exporting good wine, making good cars, having a good economy, etc. at a cost to South Africa. I firmly believed that we were exploited by Australia during the sanction years. They filled a gap left by the then South Africa.

Since then everything has changed.

When I read the below, it is clear that I cannot blame anybody else but the government of South Africa, for anything that is for sure going to happen to South Africa, based on what is currently happening.

Hedge fund warns of SA 'blow-up'
Mar 04 2011 17:14 Reuters
UK hedge fund Toscafund says SA is likely to implode Libya-style in 15 years, but with more serious consequences.

London - South Africa is flawed and set to "blow up" within the next 15 years with more serious consequences than Libya, says Toscafund, one of the UK's most high-profile hedge funds.

It tips commodity-rich Russia and Australia to benefit.

Chief economist and partner Savvas Savouri, who has been researching South Africa's economy, cites emigration of professional workers and what he sees as a "lack of centralised leadership" when it comes to dealing with problems such as the Aids epidemic.

"It's socially, politically and demographically flawed. It will malfunction within 15 years. It will go the way of MENA (the Middle East and North Africa) but the blow-up will be much more serious," Savouri told Reuters in an interview this week.

"Professional whites and blacks are leaving in hordes - the human capital is decaying," he said.

Savouri's comments come as Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi struggles to contain a two-week-old popular uprising in the world's 12th-largest oil exporter, which has helped push brent crude above $115 a barrel.

The unrest across North Africa and the Middle East has also seen the ousting of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak and Tunisian leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, as well as protests in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

Savouri said a "malfunction" in South Africa, which is the world's biggest producer of platinum and a major producer of palladium alongside Russia, would push commodity prices higher, benefiting rival commodity-rich countries.

"Clearly Russia and Australia will win out. The surge in commodity prices will benefit them," he said.

Savouri, who is known for being outspoken in his predictions, said in January that the financial services industry was practically "lawless".
