Donald Trump’s Failing Presidency – By Robert Parry

Donald Trump’s Failing Presidency

April 25, 2017  – Consortiumnews.com

President Donald Trump

Special Report: After his election, Donald Trump had a narrow path to a transformational presidency, but it required breaking the neocon grip on U.S.A. foreign policy and telling truth to U.S. citizens. Already, Trump has failed, says Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

The 100-day mark may be an artificial measuring stick for a U.S. president. Obviously much can happen in the remaining 1,361 days of a four-year term. But Donald Trump’s decisions in his first three months in office have put him on an almost irreversible path to failure.      Continue reading

Blacks, Bleaching and the Willie Lynch Letter

Yvonne Sam

Black is Beautiful but Bleaching does not guarantee Reaching.

On April 11, 2017 detectives assigned to the Counter-Terrorism and Organized Crime Branch (C-TOC) in Jamaica, seized 78,000 tubes/jars of assorted bleaching creams, and in relation to the find charged the vendor with Breaches of the Pharmacy Act, Food and Drug Act and Customs Act. Skin lightening trends or skin bleaching has continued to be practiced in Jamaica despite governmental crack-down measures.

Guyana – MY HEART GRIEVES FOR THEE – By Yvonne Sam


Yvonne Sam

By Yvonne Sam

My heart grieves for the country that I was born and raised in; the country I love.

It is so hard to sit back and look, and not be grieved at what is happening in the country that claims to be founded as a God-fearing nation.

My heart grieves at the continuous, self-inflicted violence and murder that we see daily.

My heart grieves for the trend of authoritarianism that is once again raising its head in Guyana?

My heart grieves at the way we continue to overlook and ignore certain issues in our   community, such as mental illness, incest and abuse, which negatively impact so many.   Continue reading
