TODAY IN KIMBERLEY’S HISTORY 3 APRIL Kimberley Musical Association formed at the City Hall, 1901 Memorial service for Cecil John Rhodes at the Public Gardens, 1902 Cecil Compton-Paterson (pictured) races in his aeroplane against a motorcycle, 1912 DID YOU KNOW That in 1950 the De Beers Company gave direct employment to 1500 whites and 5000 Africans, while the city council had two “native villages”, Greenpoint and Number 2 Location. There were 20 000 inhabitants of No 2 and 9 000 lived in Greenpoint. The council planned to build at least 600 houses in both townships that same year. February 15 1950 was also the 50th Anniversary of the relief of Kimberley during the Anglo-Boer war and there was a gathering of all surviving old soldiers led by the Mayor of 1899, R.H. Henderson. Amid scenes of great emotion, Henderson said that his “warmest wish for Kimberley is that she may never again see an enemy at her gates, not again be called on to make the bitter sacrifices demanded by the scourge of war.” B ...

The story of Rhodesia by Jim Levenderis A tribute to Rhodesia and Rhodesians, and truth. The name Cecil John Rhodes will generally excite debate where it is recognised and most of the comments, particularly amongst the liberal establishment, will be negative. Familiar epithets are rapidly forthcoming. Racist, ruthless, greedy capitalist, oppressor, imperialist. These are brands his legacy will forever contend with but what even his most vehement critics will struggle to deny is that for better or for worse this was a man possessed of astonishing and unselfish vision. It is notable that two figures central to recent history, President Bill Clinton and General Wesley Clarke the NATO commander in Europe are proud to announce that they went to Oxford as beneficiaries of Rhodes Scholarships. In Rhodes’ guidelines for selection of candidates for this award it is also interesting to note there is no mention of race. Much about civility, good manners, sportsmanship and understanding of the common good but nothi ...
Dr. John Coleman. COMMITTEE 300 Secret World Government (continued) It is interesting to note that Cecil John Rhodes (Cecil John Rhodes), a member of the Committee of 300 , which represented the interests of the Rothschilds in South Africa, followed the example of Inchcape , bringing hundreds of thousands of Indian " coolies " to work on the sugar plantations in Natal province . Among them was Mahatma Gandhi , the communist agitator and troublemaker . As the Chinese coolies , Indians did not return home from the dates of their contracts. They also gave rise to major social problems , and their descendants became lawyers who made vanguard of those who leaked to the government of the African National Congress. By 1875 , the Chinese " coolies " from San Francisco created a channel of delivery of opium , bringing opium addicted 129,000 Americans. Together with the already existing 115,000 addicts of the number of Chinese they represented a market that allowed Lord Inchcape shovel hundreds of thousands of doll ...

DIPLOMACY BY DECEPTION *11 - Apartheid And India's Caste System Much has been made by the Committee of 300 about the "evils" of South Africa's separation of races policy. Yet, little or nothing has been said about India's rigid separation of classes in Indian society. Could it be that South Africa is attacked because it has the richest Gold Fields in the world, while India has only a few natural resources of any real worth? Actively assisted by master deceiver Cecil John Rhodes, a servant of the Rothschild, began an agitation for "rights" was raised by the carpetbaggers and hordes of foreigners who flocked to the Transvaal when the discovery of gold was announced. What these vagabonds and fortune hunters demanded was the right to vote, the first of the "one man one vote" scams used to separate the Boer people and their descendants from their national sovereignty. The agitation was or chestrated by the Rothschild-Rhodes political machine in Johannesburg and carefully controlled by Lord Alfred Milner out of ...

How To Kill A Country Turning a breadbasket into a basket case in ten easy steps—the Robert Mugabe way SAMANTHA POWER Dec 1 2003 Nearly forty years ago Ian Smith, the Prime Minister of Rhodesia, became the first and only white colonial ruler to break away from the British Crown. He had tired of London's nagging about the subjugation of Rhodesian blacks. In 1965 Smith declared independence. "The mantle of the pioneers has fallen on our shoulders," he said, calling on white Rhodesians to maintain standards in a "primitive country." Smith saw himself as an apostle of Cecil John Rhodes, the British magnate who gave Rhodesia its name, and who in the late nineteenth century duped black tribal leaders into signing over the fertile land to white pioneers. Although Rhodesia in 1965 was home to just over 200,000 whites and four million blacks, Smith shared Rhodes's belief that black majority rule would occur "never in a thousand years." Smith was of course wrong. In 1980, after a civil war that cost 30,000 lives, ...
Heroes fall like skittles and the bad guys win. There’s high-level politics, hustlers, Zuma lawyers and middlemen. It adds grist to the mill of the loud anti-BEE lobby. It makes us look B-grade. It is a cocktail of shenanigans, hustle and cowboy frontier capitalism. Here’s how it starts. Enter Nick Holland, the chief executive of Gold Fields. Government is getting hungry and angry – the face of the mining industry looks much like it did when Cecil John Rhodes started the precursor to Holland’s gold multinational: lily white. Holland needs blacks, but where would he find BEE partners? If you look at Gold Fields’ executive committee, it is a challenge to employment equity laws. By my count, Holland has two black South Africans and a Ghanaian reporting to him, while the rest are white men of a certain age and culture. I think it is the way of large parts of corporate South Africa – you choose inner circles who look like you. My guess is Holland had no black networks and did not move easily in a b ...
Why does the company of Cecil John Rhodes (that's what Gold Fields is) think it's OK to act like this in the 21st century? Well, we let it.

5 July, 1853 - Cecil John Rhodes, South African statesman, is born Cecil John Rhodes was born on 5 July 1853 in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, England. Rhodes was sickly as a teenager and suffered bouts of asthma. His family sent him to Natal, South Africa, to live with his older brother in the hope that the hot climate would improve his health. In South Africa Rhodes became involved in the mining industry of Kimberly. He began buying a few small mines. Eventually Rhodes founded the De Beers mining company, which, at one stage marketed 90% of the world’s rough diamonds. He was instrumental in the colonization of Rhodesia, present day Zimbabwe, which was named after him. He was an ardent believer in colonialism, declaring that the Anglo-Saxon race was the first race and therefore should inhabit the entire world. His dream was to build a British empire that would rule all of Africa. Rhodes died on 26 March 1902.
In memory of Vuyo Apartheid never died in South Africa. It inspired a world order upheld by force and illusion 19 September 2012 The murder of 34 miners by the South African police, most of them shot in the back, puts paid to the illusion of post-apartheid democracy and illuminates the new worldwide apartheid of which South Africa is both an historic and contemporary model. In 1894, long before the infamous Afrikaans word foretold "separate development" for the majority people of South Africa, an Englishman, Cecil John Rhodes, oversaw the Glen Grey Act in what was then the Cape Colony. This was designed to force blacks from agriculture into an army of cheap labour, principally for the mining of newly discovered gold and other precious minerals. As a result of this social Darwinism, Rhodes' own De Beers company quickly developed into a world monopoly, making him fabulously rich. In keeping with liberalism in Britain and the United States, he was celebrated as a philanthropist supporting high-minded causes. ...

GWERU PUPIL DROWNS DURING SWIMMING LESSON TRAGEDY befell Cecil John Rhodes (CJR) Primary School in Gweru when a Grade Three pupil drowned during a swimming lesson. Preliminary police investigations reveal that the death of the eight-year-old girl could have been a result of negligence on the part of the school authorities who allegedly failed to check whether all the pupils had cleared the pool area. Acting Midlands police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko confirmed the incident, which occurred on Wednesday at about 2pm. He identified the girl as Samantha Phiri. “We can confirm the death of an eight-year- old girl, Samantha Phiri who drowned at the CJR Primary School swimming pool at about 2.30pm yesterday (Wednesday).

CAPITALISM is the most corrupt 'thing' ever invented by humans... The exploitation and the looting of economic resources of our continent, AFRIKA - the most incredible continent in the world, by capitalists is the most painful story which serves as an example to show how most corrupt capitalism is... The horrific operation of exploiting and looting AFRIKA's economic resources was organized by the Rothschilds family, Oppenhiemers family, Cecil John Rhodes, Jan Smuts, Alfred Milner and countless of other white supremacist-capitalists. And this was done through an Aryanist Elite secret society called the ROUND TABLE, which was headed by Cecil John Rhodes, and was established to rape and suck every economic resource of AFRIKA. Bear in mind that Cecil John Rhodes was a mining business tycoon and also an influential politician of the 19th century. Infact Cecil John Rhodes and other European gangsters stole our mines through this secret society, the Round Table... Most of the mines that we see today are owned by ...

Matebeleland is a political pacesetter Written by Khumbulani Moyo,UMthwakazi Review Thursday, 10 January 2013 Matebeleland politics gets interesting at every moment and at every turn. The people of Matebeleland have always been pacesetters and strategists in the political arena and revolutionary politics. It is in their DNA to be political and revolutionary but more-so this is a legacy that was bequeathed to them by their forbearers who had a well-organized and oiled political, civil and militarized Matebeleland Kingdom headed by King Mzilikazi and later his son King Lobengula. They were pacesetters in nation building. They were pacesetters and strategists in resisting colonialism against Cecil John Rhodes and his cronies in 1893 via our warrior impis who fought gallantly and won battles of historical note in the valleys and plains of Matebeleland, defending a piece of our African motherland that was under attack from the forces of European imperialism and occupation.

Morgan and Company is explained by George Wheeler, in Pierpont Morgan and Friends, the Anatomy of a Myth, page 17: "But there were steps being taken even now to bring him out of the financial backwaters--and they were not being taken by Pierpont Morgan himself. The first suggestion of his name for a role in the recharging of the reserve originated with the London branch of the House of Rothschild, Belmont’s employers."38 Wheeler goes on to explain that a considerable anti-Rothschild movement had developed in Europe and the United States which focused on the banking activities of the Rothschild family.

Although his importance in West Africa may have equalled that of Cecil John Rhodes in South Africa, he differed from Rhodes in his preference for obscurity; he destroyed his papers and pronounced a curse on any of his children should they write about him after his death. Educated at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, Goldie served briefly (1865–67) in the Royal Engineers. After travelling for several years in Egypt and the Sudan, he formed ...

Cecil Rhodes & De Beers: Genocide Diamonds Cecil Rhodes: A Bad Man in Africa THE EVIL THAT MEN DO LIVES AFTER THEM – AND RARELY MORE MISERABLY THAN IN THE CASE OF Cecil Rhodes, WHO DIED 100 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH. By Matthew Sweet North of the Zambezi, they have long known about the suppression of free speech, about the bloody redistribution of land along racial lines, about politicians happy to employ armed – and sometimes uniformed – mobs to kill their opponents. They are practices imported to this region, along with the railways, by the British. Unlike the African press, the Western media rarely invoke the name of Cecil John Rhodes: nearly a century after his death – on 26 March 1902 – his name is more associated with Oxford Scholarships than with murder. It’s easier to focus on the region’s more recent, less Anglo white supremacists: Ian Smith, for instance, who – despite his Scottish background – seems cut from the same stuff as those Afrikaner politicians who nurtured and maintained ...

On 1 September 1870, Cecil John Rhodes first set foot on African soil. When Rhodes first arrived in South Africa, he lived on money lent to him by his aunt Sophia. As the land in Natal was unsuited to growing cotton, he only remained in Natal until October 1871, when he moved to the diamond fields just opening up in Kimberley. Financed by Nathan Mayer Rothschild & Sons, over the next 17 years, Rhodes succeeded in buying up all the smaller diamond mining operations in the Kimberley area. He started De Beers in 1880, and fonded Gold Fields of South Africa Ltd in 1887. His monopoly of the world’s diamond supply was sealed in 1889 through a strategic partnership with the London-based Diamond Syndicate. They agreed to control the world’s diamond supply to maintain high prices. To this very day, they burn diamonds in Kimberley if too many are found, as this would lower the price of diamonds. In fact, artificial scarcity of diamonds are maintained in order to keep their prices high. The agreement so ...

King Leopold II’s hidden genocide Written by Patriot Reporter NO doubt, we know a lot about Cecil John Rhodes’s reign of exploitation and plunder in Rhodesia. We also know that his desire to conquer our land went as far as claiming our own spiritual shrine at Matopos as his burial site. Rhodes was British. He was a rogue, and a greedy colonialist. What most of us do not know, is that the evils of Cecil John Rhodes in Africa did not reach the extent shown during the bloody and ruthless reign of King Leopold II of Belgium in the Democratic Republic of Congo, when it was still The Congo. It is most surprising that the deaths of over 10 million Congolese people during King Leopold’s reign of terror is hardly mentioned when the world speaks of genocide in some books on African history. Unless we dig deep into the history of Africa’s past, we will never know. The small country of Belgium is the subject of this column and the role played by the notorious King Leopold II who lived between 1835 and 1909. K ...
05/07/1853-Englishman Cecil John Rhodes is born.He founded De Beers to steal our wealth,colonized Zim&declared Anglo-Saxon as the first race
Studying the rise and fall of Empires and I happen to come across a documentary on Queen Victoria's epoch. Came across this persona- Cecil John Rhodes. He did such terrible things. Yet, some people admire him for THIS speech. People like Romney probably and Cheney. I would say Bush but I was taught to be nice to retards. "I have considered the existence of God and decided that there is a fifty fifty chance that God exist. Therefore, I propose to give Him the benefit of the doubt. Now, what would this God want for the world? He would want it well run. I have viewed the peoples of the world and have come to the conclusion that the English speaking race is the highest ideals of Justice, Liberty and Peace. Therefore, I shall devote the rest of my life to God's purpose and make the world English. I shall work for the furtherance of the British Empire, the bringing of the whole civilized world under British rule, for the recovery of the United States of America, for the making of the Anglo Saxon world into One ...

Dr Sekai nzenza alleges "This search for a spiritual sense of identity is not new. When the first missionaries arrived at Munhumutapa’s Kingdom in 1650, our ancestors feared the loss of culture so they stayed away from the Portuguese missionaries and their Christian religion. Naked children, bare breasted women with short leather skirts and men with loin cloths stood there, looking at the strange exotic white people with amusement. Gospel seeds of salvation fell on dry foot paths, rocks and thorny trees. Munhumutapa was hesitant to accept a foreign white God intend on imposing an alien Western culture while changing the spiritual identity of his people. He told the missionaries that we worshiped God through the Mwari religion. Outside God and the ancestors, there was no other God and no other religion or culture to define us. The Portuguese missionaries hardly converted anyone. Clutching their Bibles in despair, they left Munhumutapa’s kingdom, totally convinced that Africans will never see the light ...

Everyone knows Cecil John Rhodes; I bet you never heard of William T Stead. He introduced the "interview" into journalism (1884)
Excerpt from And now it Rains...My Zimbabwe through my eyes. There is a land somewhere in Africa where hope was lost due to the greed of a few individuals. A people's hope for a better future was decimated by their selfish want. Want that was a result of a historic injustice perpertrated by others of another race. That injustice was to be later referred to as imperialism. But in reality that injustice is nothing short of pure greed. Greed for wealth and power that has seen humanity repeat its own slefish mistakes . It is said somewhere in the dark vaults of history that when Cecil John Rhodes came to Africa he came with ambition in his heart. That may be so but reality dictates otherwise. Reality simply tells us that he came with greed and as is such that greed is seen through the blood the bath that was to taint Africa . The lives of so many lost due to greed . Some died fighting for a small piece of land that they could call their own and others died for more than that. Others just simply fought becau ...

To Learn More! There is no point in worrying about the erosion of personal freedom that is the reality of our present era if we can do nothing about it. They say that knowledge is power, but that is one of the greatest myths of all history. Knowledge without action is useless and leads only to apathy and despair. So the question is: what type of action can reverse this trend? Writing letters and signing petitions to the same people who have created the problem is not going to do it. Voting for candidates selected by power brokers with hidden agendas will not do it either. There have been many proposals to reverse the tide of totalitarianism but, after decades of effort, none of them have worked. In this address, G. Edward Griffin, Founder of Freedom Force, tells us why; and the reason is so simple, it will astound you. Once we clear away that single barrier, the plan for a pro-active counter-force falls quickly into place. This is the missing piece of the puzzle, the ultimate solution we have been seeking ...
Jones is employed by an organization called "Genesis Communication Network".. There are several companies with the same name, ALWAYS using "Genesis" incorporated in it. Genesis is owned by Adnon Kashoggi.. Jones denies this but makes reference to him... Kashoggi is a member of the Buildeburg Group and a terrorist. Here's the piece where Jones pretends not to know him. At 5:10 Jones denies knowing Khashoggi Naomi Wolf has direct ties to Cecil John "Rhodes" She is a sister (A Rhoads Scholar, of the brotherhood/sisterhood) of Bill Clinton, and they are ALL connected... They all belong to certain fraternities which lead into other "secret societies" Phi Beta Kappa, etc.. Naomi Wolf -Yale New College -1985 -American author and feminist social critic Cecil John Rhodes is an illuminati member and a Free mason. Naomi was taught under the belief system he created, which were secret societies. She is a Zionist like Alex Jones is. She is a "globalist" and has a purpose, just like Alex Jones and all the rest.
