On August 15, General Michael Hayden, the former head of the CIA and NSA, said Donald Trump has “autocrat envy.” Hayden was one of 50 officials from past Republican administrations who signed a letter labeling Donald Trump a risk to America’s “national security and well-being.”
Ramaphosa, delivering a eulogy at the official funeral service of the late Reverend Makhenkesi Stofile in Alice in the Eastern Cape today, criticised government entities that were taking each other on.
In recent times, we have witnessed a sequence of subversive social outbursts that have no other reason but to increase the opposition of the people – mainly young – to the government, exploit the readiness and penetration reached in communications and to create a leader to head the increasing revolts meant to depose the government. The tactics are the same. In South Africa this plan is already in progress.
Since Julius Sello Malema was a child, he was an activist of the ruling African National Congress and with a rising political career he became the hired voice to deal with these plans and generate the revolts. Continue reading

Historically, the African continent has being a fertile land for the development of CIA covered actions in support of the hegemonic interests of the United States in the continent. South Africa hasn’t escaped from these actions and has been the target in multiple operations of this intelligence agency; operations that have evolved from the most violent during the apartheid period to the most non-violent novel methods developed at Langley to the creation of the wrongly called “Colours Revolutions”.
Effective actions as those applied in countries like Yemen, Egypt, Iran and Syria are the result of the creation of young leaders with high skills in oral speech, with the capacity of joining huge groups of young people using social networks and its media impact through the west mass media.

Africa, where the imperial domination history has left a painful sequel of hunger and misery that attempts against the survival of its most precious treasure, the ancestral African man, has renew the attention of the western powers, especially that of the United States. The irrational exploitation of the non-renewable resources carried out by the great powers threatens to cause the disappearance of these resources and incites the eyes of the west to focus on the forgotten continent. It is worthy to make an analysis about what is happening in countries like Angola, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and we might have time for it at a later stage.
South Africa, a country that, since President Mandela and the African National Congress (ANC) came into power, has made an effort to overcome the debt of social injustice that lacerated that damaged republic during the years of the apartheid, is also in the spotlight of the American government.

Former Central Intelligence Agency officer Jeffrey Sterling was found guilty of violating the 1917 Espionage Act Monday for providing information to the New York Times regarding covert operations conducted by the CIA against Iran. Sterling was convicted of nine felonies including illegally possessing and transferring secret government information. He could receive up to 100 years in prison after sentencing in late April.
