Did the distributors of The Sunday Independent face strike action on December 10 so as to stop its article claiming third forces were behind Jacques Pauw’s book ‘The President’s Keepers’. Did that third force include ex-Treasury Minister Pravin Gordhan? Independent Media, owners of The Sunday Independent, “believe” the first part to be true. Online, regarding a third force, the newspaper states “Impeccable sources have revealed the book came after several meetings between Pauw, Gordhan, former intelligence head Moe Shaik as well as former South African Revenue Service (SARS) top executives Ivan Pillay and Johann van Loggerenberg. Sources say virtually all … ‘Click here to read full article…’
There is danger in speaking truth to power. “The Hacker Wars- a film about the targeting of hacktivists and journalists by the US government. Hacktivists are either terrorists or freedom fighters depending on one’s perspective on who should control information. The Hacker Wars takes you to the front lines of the high-stakes battle over the fate of the Internet, freedom and privacy. The Hacker Wars tells the tales of the anarchic troll provocateur Andrew “weev” Aurenheimer, prodigy hacker hero Jeremy Hammond, and incendiary watchdog journalist Barrett Brown – three larger than life characters whose separate quests to expose the secrets … ‘Click here to read full article…’
The Democratic Alliance’s Knysna Mayor Eleanore Bouw-Spies has dragged me into what i consider to be her scandal. Who really said what, who really did what? Are you part of social media gossip club or are you interested in what happened and thinking for yourself? If you haven’t yet listened to the recording of our meeting, that’s your starting point. You can blame them for the beginning being boring 🙂 but it will get to interesting discussion that will immediately put doubt on the Mayor’s press release against me. For context, the Mayor did not offer me a meeting to … ‘Click here to read full article…’
333 emails still in my Inbox despite working very hard today to try catch up. Feeling very tired. No, that’s not a sign of giving up. Truth must win! I must win! Knysna must win! Politicians must lose!!! Will get my head together though i fear that the only way to exist, let alone get ahead, is to delete some intentions and mails with requests 🙁 I can’t be much on FB and my blogs much this week. Have too much work to do for the continuous court cases laid by the DA! So much to learn. So much money … ‘Click here to read full article…’
ARE YOU A SHEEP? Are you the average person blind to the truth of the two worlds we are living in? Do you swallow the pre-packaged pill and pretend that everything is OK and that the political party you support is the moral one? Do you deceive yourself and thus encourage the damage of everything that is our lives? “It’s real, it’s real!” you cry. NO, IT ISN’T. Burn your willful ignorance. Find your own truth! Judge everything by right and wrong, not by politicians lest you be nothing more than a skin colour, one small number in a large … ‘Click here to read full article…’
I only noticed it now. Over 11 000 words ago, i passed the half a million words mark on KnysnaKeep.org. That’s, roughly, the length of 5 Jonathan Kellerman books. It’s not the book i meant to write in Knysna but it is the ‘book’ that’s the most important now. This wasn’t my intention. There was no way that i could have imagined that it would take so long to bring the board of directors of Knysna Tourism to justice or that people would approach me with so many other issues along the way.'Click here to read full article...'
Is it incompetence or deliberate removal of the facts so that the Knysna public doesn’t get to know what’s going on? At the Council meeting held September 25, DA chairpersons were again accused by the opposition of changing recommendations and not noting what had been noted i.e. what happens in Section 80 meetings are not represented appropriately in Mayoral and Council meetings. In case my readers have forgotten, the way decisions are passed is via 3 meetings: Section 80 -> Mayoral Committee -> Council.'Click here to read full article...'
Our lives have become collisions of chaos that we’ve wrongly accepted as normality. No matter how well we deny truth, there remains a seed of fear in our bellies that murmurs, “What next?”. Without an answer, or the willingness to face possibilities of unrest and challenge, the future is likely to be more synonymous with trepidation than adventure. This video (and it’s powerful script and narrative by the Snordster) are disturbing because it preaches reality which is always less comfortable than the fantasy we’ve been living in. But, without reality, we have no future. Play this video loud and a … ‘Click here to read full article…’
It worries me how much of South Africa’s reason and intelligence has been replaced with hate. The easiest place to witness this is in comment sections, especially on bigger media websites such as News24 where i sometime post. It was once so bizarre that a woman made an emotional, 100% statement in agreement with me… except, in her mind, without realising it, she had replaced the word ‘ DA’ with ‘ANC’ i.e. she’d meant exactly the opposite but, maybe, hadn’t conceived that a white person would write what i had. I mention “white” because it’s very much white people saying … ‘Click here to read full article…’
Milestone reached: 250 000 (a quarter million) words posted on www.KnysnaKeep.org. Thank you to my readers for sharing this period with me! I had no idea that trying to get the truth from Knysna Tourism would lead me down this rabbit hole where maladministration and corruption is far too often the rule of the day. As said previously, i hope to give this up one day and focus on charity but the guns are out for me so best i fire back for a while. Truth matters! Where there are secrets, there’s more chance of corruption breeding.'Click here to read full article...'
