Steve Bannon Lays Out His AMAZING Political Philosophy in 2011

Steve Bannon Lays Out His AMAZING Political Philosophy in 2011

Published on Nov 18, 2016

Speech by Stephen K. Bannon (Steve Bannon), Donald Trump’s senior strategic advisor and architect of his winning 2016 election. In this speech delivered in 1911 to the Liberty Restoration Foundation, Bannon laid out the political philosophy both he and Trump embraced, and which appealed to the American people in the election.  It is conservative, perhaps explaining why the political liberal left has resorted to evidently incorrect allegations of antisemitism or racism to try to derail his appointment.      Continue reading

Jagdeo’s presidency is synonymous with corruption, extra-judicial killings and drug lords – AFC

– Has no moral authority to judge any sitting govt

Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo

Since Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo’ has a remarkable legacy of failure to his name then he has no place awarding any grade to the performance of the APNU+AFC Government.

The AFC stated that it finds the “F” grade to be devoid of objectivity or fairness. It said that this move however fits with the far-right extremist approach and utter desperation that Jagdeo has adopted in dealing with matters as Opposition Leader.   This comment was made by the Alliance For Change (AFC) last night. Its statement was in wake of the “F” Grade recently handed out to the administration by Jagdeo.

Guyana: Justice must be free from undue delay and influence

Justice must be free from undue delay and influence

Letter By Shakoor Maharaj

Dear Editor:
letters to the editor logo
Chief Justice (ag), Yonette Cummings-Edwards and outgoing Chancellor of the Judiciary (ag), Justice Carl Singh, proudly cut the ribbon to formally re-open the Sparendaam Magistrates Court (see below)  which had been closed for almost a year to facilitate the construction of a new building, citing that two Magistrates will now preside to deal with the backlogs. What about other judicial and magisterial districts? Are the residents of Lethem and Bartica, for example, not entitled to speedy justice also? What about public disclosures, tenders and advertisements concerning the costs and allocation of this public works contract? We deserve public accountability.

Barbados Gov’t Between a Rock and a Hard Place With General Elections Looming

Barbados Underground

barbados-election-map-2013 2013 Final Electoral Map, the government won by a 2 seat margin

1. Consider this argument. The Central Bank (CB) Governor has refused to print any more money for the Minister of Finance (MOF). The MOF needs printing to continue to pay civil servants and keep Government running. If the Government can’t pay the civil servants this month, all hell will break loose. Therefore the CB Governor has to be fired so that somebody who will agree to print the money can be appointed. These delays being granted by the High Court are making the MOF nervous. Time is of the essence. But Jeez, if the printing continues, the economy will only get sicker.

2. Foreign reserves are at an all-time low and heading further south, and with the poor tourist season we are now having, not much hope for recovery. The Government can’t even put its…

Trump Divides and Rules – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Trump Divides and Rules – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Opinion - commentary -analysisimagesWhy protest? You can sit and do nothing. They will gradually chip away at your rights while you are busy with other things. Then one day you will wake up to find that the liberties you took for granted are gone, and never to be replaced.

You make some token noises but no one really listens. It is too late. The alternative is to peacefully rise up and let your voice join in a crescendo that advocates for change. The tone in Washington is ugly, incorrect and poisonous and looks likely to get worse. The voices for change are needed more than ever before.   Continue reading

Less skin, more God and no racism: How Brazil’s left and right want to change Carnaval

Less skin, more God and no racism: How Brazil’s left and right want to change Carnaval

Brazil - Carnaval

Brazil – Carnaval

  – February 11, 2017. Washington Post

You’ve seen the images of Brazilian Carnaval. A sea of people in the streets, oiled-up women samba-dancing at lightning speed and packs of trumpets, trombones and drums blasting out singalong songs. But this year, the annual tradition of full-throttle lascivious indulgence is showing signs of change as well.

Brazil’s increasingly powerful evangelical church and its progressive movements are both pushing to refine Carnaval to match their often opposing priorities. As a sign of the times, the Brazilian city of Olinda, famous for its street festival, has two new additions this Carnaval: a “Gospel zone” and an “LGBT zone.”

The changes are perhaps most evident in this year’s controversy over the glitter-coated woman who dances across Brazilian TV screens this time of year.    Continue reading
