Good morning all,
The latest Knysna Tourism Newsletter is out.
I’m probably a little Trump-obsessed, but it’s wonderful to see the Deep State under the spotlight – at last! And it proves – again – that you don’t plead with or bribe your enemies not to attack you – you meet them head-on. But I guess that’s not what motivated the Dems – they had something far more sinister in mind. I’m not a blind follower of Donald Trump – he’s rough around the edges, to put it mildly – but I think he’s just what Amerca – and the world – needs right now.
Ramaphosa pours cold water on the land expropriation bs – but just a little – we don’t want the party breaking up now do we?
China experiencing being met head on – and it’s working.
Xasa seems to like the egg on her face – she’s clearly not going to wipe it off. I’m sure there’s still more to come out, but do’t expect it to be publicised if it reflects badly on Ashwin Willemse.
