    1. The Destruction of the Aral Sea. 2. Famines in the Soviet Union, China, and North Korea. 3. The Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). 4. Soviet nuclear disasters and pollution. 5. Zimbabwe .6. Venezuela. These are just brief examples of the wonders of Marxism. Hopefully the eyes of younger generations will see this article, and reject what Marxism truly offers. Why Couldn't What Happened In Venezuela Happen Here?

    Jamie Fox (right) puts a ring on the the hand of Zanele Ndlovu, whose arm was ripped off while canoeing days before her wedding day. (Nkosizile Ndlovu) A woman whose arm was torn off by a crocodile wasn’t going to let a lost limb get in the way of her wedding -- and she managed to walk down the aisle just days after the gruesome attack. Zanele Ndlovu, a former national tennis player, got married to Jamie Fox on Sunday at Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, where she’s recovering from the crocodile attack, The Sun reported. ...

  • I printed Zim dollar to stop coup, Gono says

    Former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor Gideon Gono says he was forced to print money even when he knew it would cause hyperinflation because the government was desperate to forestall a coup by hungry soldiers. Gono, who retired in 2013, told the Mashonaland West Business Conference in Chinhoyi last week that cash was used to pacify the troops. "If we had not done what we did printing money and allowing inflation to skyrocket, then the men and women you see in those beautiful uniforms, they were ready to get out of their barracks," he said. "Operation Restore Legacy would have...

    South Africa is busy Zimbabwifying itself, ready to expropriate white-owned farms without compensation. At this point, it should be a pariah state. But in goes President Obama, likely to egg them on. The gushy New York Times piece about it pretty well calls Obama's planned trip to play community organizer abroad in South Africa a wonderful thing. He’s been photographed kite-surfing with Richard Branson off Necker Island, relaxing on David Geffen’s yacht in French Polynesia with Bruce Springsteen and Oprah Winfrey, river-rafting with his family in Bali and posing with a celebrity chef in Tuscany. To those who have...

    Ted Talks ^ | 3/4/2013 | Allan Savoy
    This Ted Talk should be required viewing by every member of the BLM and the EPA. The first couple of minutes he starts off talking like a typical climatologist, mentioning fossil fuels. But then he takes an interesting turn. He's an Ecologist originally from Africa. And he's actually been responsible for implementing a number of land management policies throughout his career that have failed miserably. His conclusions on land management end up being the opposite of what we commonly hear. And what's more, he's had a chance to implement those solutions on 5 different continents and has seen outstanding success.
  • Africa PHENOMENON threatens to FLIP Earth's magnetic field, taking the poles with it

    Express.co.uk ^ | Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | Sakura Evans
    New research shows the most significant weakening is happening under Africa which has been dubbed the 'South Atlantic Anomaly' (SAA). As well as giving us our north and south poles, the magnetic field blankets the Earth, protecting it from solar winds and cosmic radiation. The forcefield has weakened significantly over the past 160 years and scientists now suggest it could be in the process of flipping. Such a change would be a switch in magnetic polarity and would see compasses point south rather than north. Scientists believe such an occurrence has actually happened several times in the history of our...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 02/28/2018 | Will Racke
    South Africa’s parliament voted Tuesday to move forward with an amendment to the country’s constitution that would allow the government to seize and redistribute white-owned land without compensation. The motion was brought by the radical Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party and was widely supported by the ruling African National Congress, which controls almost two-thirds of the parliament. The measure passed by a vote of 241 to 83, reports Reuters. EFF leader Julius Malema, a longtime proponent of land expropriation, said the “time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice.”

    There are 75 political parties registered to contest in the looming elections in Zimbabwe - up from 35 that existed prior to 2017. The so-called big league has the MDC alliance‚ made up of seven political parties whose leaders Morgan Tsvangirai‚ Tendai Biti and Professor Welshman Ncube were part of the original Movement for Democratic Change that split in 2005. They joined hands with relative minnows‚ Agrippa Mutambara of Zimbabwe People First and Jacob Ngarivhume's Transform Zimbabwe and Zanu Ndonga‚ led by Denford Musiyarira. They are what is called the "big tent"‚ and have engaged in talks to lure former...

    A VILLAGER was caught red-handed on top of his neighbour’s grave carrying a clay pot attempting to make the late his goblin. Albert Ncube was caught by his late neighbour’s son Thando Luphahla on top of the grave on Monday morning. The revelations are that Luphahla initially had a problem with his left leg and he went to seek help from a prophet known as Madzibaba Mutize who told him that there were people using his late father’s powers hence his sickness. A desperate Luphahla then decided to appease his father’s spirit by visiting his final resting place. That is...

    A Zimbabwean court has freed an American journalist who was charged with attempting to overthrow the government, after police accused her of insulting then-president Robert Mugabe. Martha O’donovan who works for Harare based Magamba TV had her case dismissed by court for a ‘patent absence of facts’. She was arrested in November in a dawn raid on her home in the capital after allegedly calling Mugabe, who was ousted in a bloodless coup a few weeks later, a ‘goblin whose wife and step-son bought a Rolls Royce’, on Twitter. It all depends on what they gather but for now the...

    READERS were angry. I had rained on their parade by venturing that the appointment of a new party boss to head South-Africa's dominant party was an insignificant game of musical chairs.But perhaps it is I who should have been annoyed. Nobody with a modicum of cerebral agility should see in the new South-African Strong Man, union boss-cum-tycoon Cyril Ramaphosa, a significant change of the guard.Surely by now it should be common knowledge that in Africa, you replace a despot, but not despotism; you oust a tyrant, but not tyranny.There's a reason Ramaphosa riles crowds at a South African Communist Party...

    A white Zimbabwean farmer previously kicked off his land by the former Robert Mugabe regime received a hero’s welcome from his community Thursday following the new government’s return of his land, the Associated Press reported. Guided by military escort, Robert Smart became the first white farmer who came back to the land he once owned before it was seized nearly two decades ago by Mugabe’s ruling Zanu-PF party. In 2000, Mugabe ordered land seizures and evictions of white farmers and their families. According to the Telegraph, of the estimated 4,500 white farmers prior the seizures, only several hundred remain. Zimbabwe’s...

    On November 21, after 37 years in power, Zimbabwe's dictator, Robert Mugabe, resigned in infamy. By contrast, the late South African leader, Nelson Mandela, was revered in the West. His successor, Thabo Mbeki, was well-respected. Yet over the decades, both Mandela and Mbeki lent their unqualified support to Mugabe. When the baton was passed from Mbeki to the populist polygamist Jacob Zuma, the current leader of South Africa's dominant-party state, little changed in the country's relationship with Zimbabwe. Why? And what is the significance of the support Zuma and his predecessors, Mandela and Mbeki, have lent the Zimbabwean dictator over...

    Addressing Harare's packed 60,000-capacity National Sports Stadium, the new leader said Zimbabwe was now "ready and willing for a steady re-engagement with all the nations of the world". He said "key choices will have to be made to attract foreign direct investment to tackle high-levels of unemployment while transforming our economy". And pledging a "new destiny" for Zimbabwe, he added: "Let us humbly appeal to all of us that we let bygones be bygones." Mr Mnangagwa - who had fled the country earlier this month only to return to a hero's welcome on Wednesday - also said that: Mr Mugabe's...

    By Norimitsu Onishi and Jeffrey Moyo Nov. 21, 2017 HARARE, Zimbabwe — Robert Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, resigned as president on Tuesday shortly after lawmakers began impeachment proceedings against him, according to the speaker of Parliament. The speaker of Parliament read out a letter in which Mr. Mugabe said he was stepping down “with immediate effect” for “the welfare of the people of Zimbabwe and the need for a peaceful transfer of power.” Parliament erupted into cheers and jubilant residents poured into the streets of Harare, the capital. It seemed to be an abrupt capitulation...

    KAMPALA, Uganda—There is a terrible but revealing irony about the arrest and detention in Zimbabwe of 25-year-old American Martha O’Donovan. Over the weekend, tens of thousands of the country’s citizens took to the streets of the capital, Harare, many of them brandishing placards denouncing 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe. His army is in revolt, his wife and chosen successor, 52-year-old Grace Mugabe, is no longer seen in public, and even though he’s trying to hold on, his party and countless citizens of the country that he’s ruled for 37 years clearly want the president gone, gone, gone. Back on Nov. 3,...

    Harare (AFP) - President Robert Mugabe clings to office, the military is in power and the much-feared ZANU-PF party still rules -- but Zimbabweans put such issues aside Saturday to happily embrace what they hope is a new era for the country. Many protesters welcomed the army's takeover this week that has brought 93-year-old Mugabe's previously impregnable reign to the brink of collapse. "Just look at the crowds here... Finally we can hope to have jobs when I finish university," Tafadzwa Musarurwa, a 22-year-old social studies student at the University of Zimbabwe, who marched in the central business district, told...
