  • Klaus Dona: The Spiritual Archeologist

    in News

    Klaus Dona comes from the art world. As Art Exhibition Curator for the Habsburg Haus of Austria, Klaus has organized exhibitions world-wide.
    With this background his approach to archeology is unconventional. He has traveled the world in search of unique and unexplained findings. Intrepid and unrelenting, he is on a mission to bring to the eye of the public such finds as giant bones, crystal skulls, carvings and sculptures in forms that do not fit into the contemporary view of our timeline. His particularly stunning finds and why he is motivated to pursue this unusual vocation. Staunchly open, he refuses to retreat in the face of skepticism and doubt.
    Klaus presses on to discover the real mysteries, going down through the centuries and excavating artifacts that science does not allow for, revealing the existence of physical proof that humanity has barely grazed the surface of our heritage here on Earth.
    In this program Klaus will discuss some of his latest finds and there importance in understanding their place in ancient Earth History.

  • Radio Free South Africa Presents - Cuan Elgin

    in Current Events

    Cuan Elgin - the author of Bulala - A True Story of South Africa will join us on Saturday 8th August at 1 pm CT (8 pm SA time) to give us an overview of the history of South Africa which is sadly misunderstood by the world at large.
    Excerpts from the book as provided by the author: After lengthy “negotiations” to “share power” with the black majority under a new constitution (which was the only mandate that 72% of the white electorate had given their leader), De Klerk and his henchmen ignored pleas (as did the mainstream press) from Afrikaners to... establish ’n toevlug in die weste, (“a refuge in the west”) - in the historically “white” Western Cape. Afrikaners were demanding their own state, or at the very least, a federation of states, wherein they could exercise a degree of self-determination. But the De Klerk team suddenly capitulated to the black “negotiators” and agreed to a universal franchise vote. This basically guaranteed that the ANC would easily and overwhelmingly win the election and then wield absolute power. The ANC swiftly began bussing-in tens of thousands of Xhosas from their Transkei homeland, to the cities, and especially to Cape Town; establishing sprawling squatter-camps there to ensure that they would have sufficient “loyal voters” ready to swing the elections their way. Nelson Mandela, who had been imprisoned (not for his "political beliefs" but for 193 counts of sabotage and for smuggling huge amounts of Soviet-bloc munitions), became the first black President of the “new” South Africa, in 1994. De Klerk was also well rewarded, in advance, for his role in this arrangement: He and Mandela shared the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE (with its million-dollar purse) of 1993.

About News

News, weather, traffic, sports. If it's happening, it's being talked about on BlogTalkRadio. Nothing has the power to move us, motivate us or shake us to our core like what's happening in the world, in the nation and in our neighborhoods. We rely on news for big-picture wants and immediate needs: We plan commutes by traffic reports, our outfits by the weather and our vacations by how the stock market performs. Whether current events happen close to home or across the globe, bookmark this category for in-depth discussions about breaking news and current trends by analysts, authors and educators alike. And if you're fascinated by weather, engage with fellow enthusiasts in conversation about climate change, superstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. And it's fun to note that sports – often paired with news, but here a category entirely its own – have rescued many people's social lives, built solely around team schedules.
