“This Is Deliberate Sabotage” – South African Insider Warns This “Terrorism Has Been Coming For A Long Time”Fri 9:08 am +01:00, 16 Jul 2021 4
ER Editor: Just as background, Jacob Zuma was ousted as South African’s leader in 2018 by Cyril Ramaphosa, which becomes relevant to the reporting below. South Africa is under pressure from many months of ‘pandemic’ playbook measures, too.
Yes, a LOT of severe trouble here. Some say it’s tribalism/politics within the ANC, and one message this morning on my cell is saying it’s NWO organised with the UN waiting in the wings. All I know is that the South Africans are standing together on this in many, many communities – black, white, coloured, Indian. People are gatvol (literally ‘bum full’ – pissed off!) with the lockdowns, the poverty, the loss of jobs, etc. It’s a very tense situation indeed. I think part of the situation is that the ANC/Ramaphosa knows that most of the people in SA will NOT take the injection. He knows that even if the gov make it mandatory it won’t work. Syrupy Cyril (Ramaphosa) is under severe NWO pressure to comply otherwise he will personally end up dead. So the looting was well-organised and targeted to make it look like it was a reaction to the ex-President Zuma being jailed for contempt of court. We all know this was a smokescreen. More truth will come out soon, I’m sure. But for now we are in the Western Cape and things are calm. It’s different in this province but we are not being naive about it. Thankfully we have moved out of the main areas …
This is no more than reading the tea leaves on our part, but our sense is that if not enough vaccine uptake, social control and economic destruction have been established already, the authorities will generate something dramatic to create it or impose it. We’re talking of several countries at the present time, not just France or South Africa. Suddenly, societies are changing character, as the journalist notes below in relation to parts of South Africa. What we didn’t think was possible suddenly is. It seems that governments or the forces behind them are prepared to go for broke, somehow.
“This Is Deliberate Sabotage” – South African Insider Warns This “Terrorism Has Been Coming For A Long Time”
Editor’s Note: Today’s letter is written by a Sovereign Man team member, Andre Bothma, who is based in South Africa.
In KwaZulu-Natal province, where Jacob Zuma is from, supporters of the former president launched a massive, coordinated protest campaign against his incarceration. Freeways were blocked with burning tires. Vehicles were stoned. Trucks set alight across the province.
And then the looting and arson started in Durban and Pietermaritzburg, two of the province’s largest cities.
South Africa, once again, is making global headlines for all the wrong reasons.
In case you missed the news, last week former President Jacob Zuma was sentenced to 15 months in prison for failing to appear at a corruption inquiry.
It was probably a calculated risk on his part: had Zuma actually appeared at the tribunal, he may very well have been convicted and sentenced to a much harsher punishment.
And when his sentence was announced, many South Africans gave a collective sigh of relief; it had been a long-overdue victory for the rule of law.
But then, virtually overnight, things started falling apart — rapidly.
First it was just small shops. But then entire shopping malls were looted and burned to the ground.
Once the shopping malls were in ashes, these “mostly peaceful” protesters moved on to torch distribution centers and loot cargo containers in Durban’s harbor.
They even rampaged against some of the region’s critical infrastructure, going as far as setting a water treatment facility on fire.
At this point the riots were still localized to the KwaZulu-Natal region, Zuma’s home turf. (ER: see green section on right of map)
But then the rioters started agitating for protests to break out in Johannesburg, the country’s economic capital…
Nobody thought the violence was going to spread there; Johannesburg is not a Zuma stronghold, and the locals there enjoy a much greater level of affluence than those living in Zuma’s native KwaZulu-Natal.
And yet, overnight, the violence spread to Johannesburg.
Bear in mind that South Africa’s national police force has been recently ‘defunded’, with a massive 11.8 billion rand (roughly $750 million) budget cut. For South Africa, that’s a staggering sum of money.
So with a heavily defunded police force unable to quell the violence, more ‘mostly peaceful’ protestors rampaged across these two key provinces, specifically targeting supply chain infrastructure.
On Monday night, for example, rioters brazenly looted a BLOOD BANK while being filmed on live television.
As things stand today, the Johannesburg and Durban downtown areas look like war zones.
I live in Cape Town, which so far hasn’t erupted. But the atmosphere here is tense; people are justifiably worried. Yesterday afternoon I came home to find a police NYALA (a NYALA is an armored 4×4 riot control vehicle) speeding past my house.
And the panic buying has already begun; I waited in line for ages last night at my local grocery store, only to find that many major product categories were totally sold out.
The line of cars waiting outside our local petrol station told the same story.
Economic analysts and observers are now sounding the alarm over food security risks; they’re saying that all the looting and burning of major infrastructure and distribution centers could cause a food shortage.
But South Africa is already running out of food — the shortages are here!
Across Durban, finding products like bread, milk and insulin for sale has become almost impossible.
The few shops that are brave enough to remain open are selling loaves of bread for 4-5X the normal price. And good luck finding any petrol anywhere in the city.
As of yesterday, the body count stood at 70.
Over a billion dollars in damages to businesses and public infrastructure.
Supply chains decimated and investor confidence gone…
Thousands of retail jobs, gone for good, and even more at risk.
The rational person needs to be intellectually honest about what’s happening right now: this is deliberate violence and sabotage designed to destroy critical infrastructure and terrify people, all in an effort to influence public policy (and free Jacob Zuma).
But there’s a word for this: terrorism.
And it’s been coming for a long time. South Africa has long been home to instability, corruption, and tension. We have politicians like Julius Malema, who pour gasoline on racial tensions and threaten to seize private property.
It’s clear that South Africa has been declining gradually.
But then all this violence broke out very suddenly, practically overnight.
As Simon (ER: Simon Black of SovereignMan) often writes, it’s like how Hemingway described going bankrupt: “gradually, then suddenly.”
Human beings are easily susceptible to normalcy bias — the bizarre voice in our heads that tells us “everything will be OK” even when the warning signs are completely obvious.
Our brains simply cannot comprehend that tomorrow could be radically different than today… and that our world could be turned completely upside down.
It is for reasons like these that Sovereign Man consistently writes about having a Plan B, which Simon describes as something like an insurance policy.
But you can’t wait until your house is already on fire before thinking about an insurance policy.
Yesterday, I spoke with a successful business owner based in KwaZulu-Natal. He runs a franchise business, and scores of shops just like his have already been looted and burned to the ground nearby.
He and his wife are almost at retirement age, and have had the means to get a Plan B in place for at least the last decade.
But they didn’t. They procrastinated. They put off taking action because there was no clear and present threat compelling them to do so.
Now, at a time where literally no one in their right mind wants to buy commercial property in their city, they are looking to liquidate their assets to get a Portuguese Golden Visa, which gives them a flexible second residency option in Europe.
Given that the application process takes several months to complete, even outside of Covid times, they’re way too late.
Having a great Plan B requires NOT procrastinating… and taking the appropriate steps for your situation BEFORE anything terrible happens, while you still have the resources and presence of mind to do so.
Because if you wait until the proverbial hits the fan, you’ll probably be too frantic and panicked to be thinking clearly about rational solutions.
Don’t give in to normalcy bias and assume that everything will always be OK. The last 18 months should be reminder enough that things can (and do) change very quickly.
Two weeks ago, South Africa was still a relatively well-functioning country. Yet the “civil” in civil society has been proven to be a precariously thin veneer.

“This Is Deliberate Sabotage” – South African Insider Warns This “Terrorism Has Been Coming For A Long Time”
The first precept of success in making government loans lies in “creating a
demand”, that is, by taking part in the creation of financial panics, depressions,
famines, wars and revolutions. The overwhelming success of the Rothschilds lay in
their willingness to do what had to be done. As Frederic Morton writes in the
Preface to “The Rothschilds”:
“For the last one hundred and fifty years, the history of the House of Rothschild
has been to an amazing degree the backstage history of Western Europe. . .
Because of their success in making loans not to individuals but to nations, they
reaped huge profits. . . Someone once said that the wealth of Rothschild consists of
the bankruptcy of nations.”
In “The Empire of the City”, B.C. Knuth says,
As Edwin Stanton, Lincoln’s Secretary of War, once stated:
“Wars are not fought to defeat a nation BUT TO CREATE A
CONDITION.” How true! The war against Japan wasn’t fought
to defeat an enemy. It was fought to create a condition—a condition of desolation and abject poverty throughout Japan. This
was done so that the International ‘redevelopers’ could rush in
at the end of hostilities and seize the prime real estate for their
Shortly after the war—after the American airborne demolition crews had done their job—vast sums of money became
available for the reconstruction of Japan. The capital to build
and equip Japan’s gleaming new industrial plants, ports, railroads,
warehouses and skyscraper office buildings didn’t come from
inside Japan. It came from outside Japan. It came from the
same people who benefited enormously from the war debts piled
up by many nations around the world. It came from the International Bankers. They put up the money. They own the show.P200
Notice a number of vitally important facts: (1) The International Bankers and their agents created conditions that resulted
in World War I; (2) They made a financial killing as a result of the
war; (3) They financed the Russian Revolution and seized control
of that vast nation; (4) They manipulated events in Europe
after the war so as “to create a condition” (Edward Stanton’s
words), the result of which left them “sitting in heaven” financially; (5) They used American loans, on which they were paid
huge commissions, to re-equip German industry with “the most
advanced technical facilities” and to make her “industrial system. . . the second best in the world by a wide margin;” (6) In
the process of their manipulations these unscrupulous, monopolistic vultures used and abused the Germans to the point where
they earned their undying hatred, and (7) By building up German
industry at the same time as they greatly antagonized the populace,
they set the scene for the arrival on the political stage of a strong
man who could rally the masses behind his ’cause’ by promising
them freedom from the international financial predators.
As for the history, there is nothing to say. We will give our own history to the cattle, and show that the entire human evolution was moving towards the recognition of the God’s chosen nation of Jews to be masters over the entire world.
When you buy your ticket you pay both the good guys and the bad guys. The success of the presentation depends on the ability of the theatrical company to get the audience wrapped up in the plot. The greater the audience participation the greater the success. Real success is achieved when the audience becomes so emotionally involved in the plot that they begin to think it’s the real thing. The profits from these theatrical extravaganzas go to those who put up the ‘seed’ money and stage the shows. Don’t misunderstand! The Americans, Canadians, English, Germans, Russians, Japanese and other nationalities who fought and died in the various theaters of war’ during this century weren’t play-acting. They were deadly serious about what they were doing. To them war was a life and death struggle. What few of them realized was that everything was carefully programmed to a carefully prepared script.p54
