Note: While the political superstructure may have changed its features since the second imperialist war, the economic base of the society has remained the same. Under Tubman, it was a Black Apartheid state in the service of imperialist capitalism. Under Doe, it was a military dictatorship in the service of imperialist capitalism. Under Taylor, it was Black Fascism in the service of capitalism. The Ellen’s era ushered in a liberal democracy; not a popular democracy but a democracy in the service of neo-liberal capitalism. In the current era under the soccer dolt, the fatherland is drifting away from liberal democracy and neo-colonial capitalism back to Black fascism in the service of private ownership of the properties of production, free market economy and free trade. Under these different conditions, the major aim of the state has been to create the condition for the wholesale exploitation of labor and resources by foreign capital.    Op-ed 

William V.S. Tubman a betrayal of the cause of African Unity

The Editor, William V.S. Tubman was not only the ringleader of the right-wing True Whig Party oligarchy for 27years, he was also a poodle of American imperialism. These dispositions of Tubman mutated his reign into an autocracy and thus created devastating consequences not only for progressive nationalism in Liberia but also put a break on African unity. As the godfather of the right–wing oligarchy, Tubman wrecked the little gains made under the progressive President Edwin J. Barclay, who fought to construct a black republic that promotes the dignity of all…

About a day ago, the 15th President of the University of Liberia was inaugurated in a historic ceremony held at the Fendall Campus. Dr. Julius Julukon Sarwolo Nelson seems ready to efficaciously pilot this flight. As I sat keenly listening to Dr. Nelson outlining a number of reforms his administration is prepared to undertake, his power-packed inaugural address reawakened lost hope. His speech arouse resounding claps and cheers at different intervals. The tasks ahead are herculean but Dr. Nelson has promised to confront them through real vision and concrete action.

Loathe, or love them: The progressive intelligentsia killed the TWP caucus politics

    The Editor, Liberia’s forward march to Democratic Governance, and total independence has been a herculean, and gigantic uphill task from the era of 1816, and up to the present. To reach the level we are currently; though not where we ought to be, it took the sweat, blood, tears, and precious lives of thousands of our kiths, kins, and compatriots who struggled unceasingly in the vanguard of political turmoil; stood unwavering test of time, amid insurmountable challenges, and including incessant wars, famine, and slavery, amongst other hostilities. At…

The cracks are increasing and becoming visible. CIC Weah is in a state of perplexity while the masses are in the state of paranoid. There is no answer to looming catastrophes in the motherland. The masses are left to hopelessly wander in the wilderness! The bubble might burst anytime soon – history will be made – and the masses will reshape their socio-economic and political destiny.

Economic Paralysis vs. Resignation conundrum – Is CDC Cracking?

    The Editor,   Neatly dressed in his white pro-poor gown, President George M. Weah marched to the podium to be sworn in as Africa’s first footballing Head of State on January 22, 2018. Greeted by a jam-packed stadium, he was not cheered this time around for scoring a goal as a Soccer Legend, but was cheered after taking the oath of office “to preserve and defend the Constitution of Liberia and faithfully execute the law”. As the masses continued to queue and troop their way to SKD Sports…

Again, we call on the International Community including the UN, US Embassy, AU and ECOWAS to join us in asking Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to focus on her current portfolio and leave us to independently decide for ourselves politically. We hope that you receive this communication as a reminder of history to embark on changing the negative narratives for a reformative one.  Op-ed 

Open Letter: Former President Sirleaf wants to weaken Unity Party to her advantage

    Dear Amb. Boakai: I’m moved to communicate to you through this medium so that the message will echo beyond individualism and that the public will bear us witness for future reference.  Amb. Boakai, you know very well that Madam  Sirleaf didn’t support you during your Presidential Bid in 2017 due to your critical stance for good governance. She did everything humanly possible to suppress your performance as a Vice President but that still didn’t stop you from delivering for your people at a considerate level. When you traveled…

Folks, listen to Head of State Samuel Kanyon Doe’s definitions of Communism: “In Communist country the women cannot get marry and the men cannot get marry. Any man can take any woman and do anything he wants to do with her”. S. Kanyon Doe said vociferously. Do you want Communism? the Chiefs thundered “No”!. S. Kanyon Doe said in Communist country if you make your farm and harvest 50 bags of rice, the communist government will seize 49 bags and give you 1 bag. Finally, S. Kanyon Doe told the chiefs that “in a communism country nobody has a house. People can sleep in any house they see”. He asked do you want Communism? Finally, the chiefs replied “No”. Op-ed 

Samuel Doe used ‘communism,’ to lie on progressive leaders

    “NOBODY WILL MARRY…NOBODY WILL OWN A HOUSE”   The Editor, I referenced a book written by former Liberian Interim President Dr. Amos Sawyer. In the publication, professor Sawyer said Liberia had a dictatorship ( 1980-1986). But one fellow who goes by the name of Edward Farley said that President Samuel Kanyon Doe was not a dictator before until “certain people” tutored Samuel Kanyon Doe with communist concepts. Mr. Farley’s “certain people” is an apparent reference to Dr. Sawyer and his colleagues of the Movement for Justice in Africa…

My Official Response to Ms. Hellen Momoh on her charges of Bullying, Plagiarism, and Grammatical Errors

    The Editor,   This gone week was too tight and multitasking for me. I had a lot of personal and professional duties to accomplish in time. Hence, Ms. Hellen Momoh had enough of amenities to woo or seduce a number of social media followers into pettiness. Let me take a few minutes to deconstruct her wild claims and frail charges which this CDC-led government is using as a spiteful propaganda against my person in various newspapers. This propaganda of me bullying women is too weak and mawkish to…

Ellen Sirleaf legacy of corruption and misrule

By Jones Nhinson Williams No administration in the history of Liberia has received so much support from the international community and goodwill from its citizens than President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s Unity Party-led government. Equally, no administration in the history of Liberia has caused so much short and long term damage to the future of Liberia and the mind-set of the Liberian people than the Sirleaf-Unity Party-led government. The damage in the short term is that our nation has become a dishonest, greedy, unpatriotic and distrustful society where lies, crime and deceit…

Towards the ECO single currency 2020, is ECOWAS ready?

    By Slolleh Kofa   Even with the yet an unsolvable cancer of internal divisions plaguing each ECOWAS country, West African leaders still believe that a mere monetary currency will defy all odds in uniting and integrating their countries in the sub-region in the absence of vibrant and workable integration policies. According to Tokunbo Afikuyomi an economic analyst, a single currency will only work if all the countries involved are economically aligned, which is not the case at the moment, even though Ecowas has set bench marks to integrate…
