eBook (ePub): $4.99
Transfer of African colonies to occupation by global finance was cunningly sold as the inevitability of Black rule. Western and Soviet-backed depots were proxy armies like today’s so-called... More > Syrian ‘rebels’. The fraud was carried out by political elites who, compromised by fiscal and sexual indiscretions, were blackmailed to do the banks’ bidding.

Government and media, Church, Anti-Apartheid Movement and leftist-liberals unleashed hell on Africa. Church leaders referred to African-killing terrorists as Christian soldiers. Today the ‘winds of change’ sweep across Europe. The same dark forces now inflict on ethnic-Europe a bloodbath of epic proportions. This, if successful, will transfer total control of Europe to the same global banking houses; Africa yesterday Europe tomorrow.< Less
