Who are we? Boers or Afrikaners? Answer from Dr Mike Du Toit
I had someone write to me about the topic of Boers versus Afrikaners. I decided to approach Dr Mike Du Toit, who was the leader of the Boeremag, and who is a professional academic who is very well versed in our history to answer this. Dr Du Toit not only knows our history in South Africa but also our history in Europe. This was his answer.

[Here's a quick, good summary of how this works and what might come of it. Jan]

The US House tabling the Bilateral Relations Bill is likely to have negative impacts on South Africa, potentially affecting trade and jobs. Here’s why:

Loss of preferential trade access: The bill seeks to determine if South Africa’s actions undermine US interests. If found to be detrimental, it could lead to South Africa losing benefits under the African Growth and Opportunities Act (AGOA).

AGOA benefits South Africa significantly: AGOA grants duty-free access to US markets for many South African exports. In 2023, South Africa exported over R65 billion worth of goods to the US under AGOA, supporting over 150,000 jobs [ActionSA]. Losing these benefits would be a major blow to the South African economy.

South Africa’s foreign policy a concern: The US may view South Africa’s recent alignment with Russia as a reason for negative impacts. Maintaining good relations with the US is crucial for South Africa’s trade and economic well-being.

It’s important to note that the situation is still unfolding. The extent of the negative impact will depend on the final provisions of the bill and South Africa’s response to US concerns.

Video & Audio: TOP SECRET: WW2s Biggest Tank Battle they never talk about
This was one of my 3 viral videos on Youtube before they quickly killed it. The original video was made in 2016. Look in every history reference book for the biggest Tank Battle that was ever fought and youll find they talk about the Battle of Kursk (or the Kursk Campaign). Heres the greatest tank battle in all of history and the fantastic Wehrmacht won it with ease, even when they faced tanks so new and so advanced that they had never seen these types of tanks before and even when their shells just bounced off the Soviet armour!
