World Control -Thinking outside of the box- by Joan

World Control -Thinking outside of the box-  by Joan.

Joan is one of our readers.  She sent this e-mail to Guyanese Online.

There is an over abundance of Muslim Hate E-mails going around these days. There are a lot of pictures and videos and talk about them over-running the countries in Europe.

I cannot see anyone taking over any WHITE country.

Why did those Governments take them into the country in the first place?

All they have to do is isolate them with bad schools, put them in jail, and when they come out there will be no jobs. Then give them dope to sell and guns to kill each other.  This way they do not have to kill them.

That has been very successful in some inner cities in some countries we know about. Continue reading

Twenty-First-Century Energy Wars – commentary

energy warsTwenty-First-Century Energy Wars

By Michael Klare

Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ukraine, the East and South China Seas: wherever you look, the world is aflame with new or intensifying conflicts.

At first glance, these upheavals appear to be independent events, driven by their own unique and idiosyncratic circumstances.  But look more closely and they share several key characteristics — notably, a witch’s brew of ethnic, religious, and national antagonisms that have been stirred to the boiling point by a fixation on energy.

In each of these conflicts, the fighting is driven in large part by the eruption of long-standing historic antagonisms among neighboring (often intermingled) tribes, sects, and peoples.  In Iraq and Syria, it is a clash among Sunnis, Shiites, Kurds, Turkmen, and others; in Nigeria, among Muslims, Christians, and assorted tribal groupings; in South Sudan, between the Dinka and Nuer; in Ukraine, between Ukrainian loyalists and Russian-speakers aligned with Moscow; in the East and South China Sea, among the Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Filipinos, and others.  Continue reading

Linden commemorates 50th anniversary of Son Chapman

Linden commemorates 50th anniversary of Son Chapman


Lindeners, on Sunday, commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Son Chapman tragedy that claimed 54 lives after the launch was blown to bits by an explosion. The date was July 6, 1964; the explosion occurred at Horadia, some 18 miles from Linden.

The launch which was owned by businessman, Norman Chapman, was returning to Linden from Georgetown, with less than its complement of passengers, according to reports.
The boat never reached its destination, as it was rocked by the explosion and sank with its cargo of passengers.

Five decades later, the real cause of the explosion is yet to be determined, and this has prompted the call for an enquiry into the tragedy. The call was repeated by several persons who attended a symposium at the Egbert Benjamin Hall, in memory of those who perished in the tragedy.  Continue reading

Stan Brock, Amazon bush pilot – By Hugh Yearwood

Stan Brock, Amazon bush pilot – My candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize.

By Hugh Yearwood

I treat my own bouts of hiraeth by writing about my experiences as a child growing up in Guyana. I was fortunate to travel and work in the interior and luckily kept an irregular journal during the years 1980-1981. I left Ebini Ranch in 1983 to study veterinary medicine in Poland where I have remained since. Here is my second story.

This story is based on an entry I made in a journal in 1978.

Stan Brock was my number one hero when I was a teenager and I’m sorry I never met him. When I first heard of him British Guiana was now Guyana and he was the long gone ex-manager of one of the most remote and largest cattle ranches in the world; Dadanawa Ranch. During his time as a cowboy there 4,000 of British Guiana’s 83,000 sq. miles belonged to Dadanawa. Lethem was just an out station. The ranch is bordered to the South and East by the mostly unexplored Amazon jungle and to the West by the Guyana, Brazilian border.

Walter Rodney Inquiry – The distortions and deceptions – Commentary

The distortions and deceptions


It was William Shakespeare who first zeroed in on a comedy of errors. Certainly in life there are these comedies, some of which have a lasting impact on a situation. The Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry is turning out to be a comedy of errors and at the end, one wonders whether the desired result would be achieved.

Walter Rodney died thirty-four years ago. Since then there have been an aborted inquest and numerous attempts to get to the bottom of the issue. In the end, depending on which side of the political fence one stood, one would have come to distinct conclusions. One conclusion would be that people opposed to the late Dr. Walter Rodney conspired to kill him by whatever means.
However, there is an equally compelling conclusion that Dr. Rodney died by his own hands, albeit by misadventure.   Continue reading

THE PNCR – ITS PAST AND FUTURE – by Ralph Ramkarran

Blog – Saturday, 21st June 2014.

Once again the issue of an apology from the PNCR has become topical. First raised with Opposition Leader David Granger while he was on a visit to the United States, it emerged again at a press conference in Guyana. Mr. Granger repeated a long established PNCR policy, designed to deflect public pressure, that there would be no blanket apology on the basis of hearsay or conjecture as if rigged elections fall in those categories. He called for all errors of the past to be investigated and said that other political parties needed to apologise as well.

Even though the PPP has made the most of the PNCR’s history during its ’28 years’ in office, as far as I am aware it has never formally called for an apology or given support to those who have done so. Continue reading

Dorthy Counts-Charlotte NC was actually the first black in America to step foot in an all white school. in 1957 she was treated so badly she had to leave the school after 4 days. That's 3 years before Ruby Bridges or any other integration story. She was bullied and hit with stones.  The harassment started when the wife of John Z. Warlick, the leader of the White Citizens Council, urged the boys to "keep her out" and at the same time, implored the girls to spit on her.
