CDC Senator Saah Joseph calls off hearing on increasing wave of violence in Liberia

    The security of the Liberian people is being seriously politicized and compromised as attempts Thursday, 22 August by some members of the Liberian Senate to query heads of state security institutions, including the Police were thwarted by senators from President George Weah’s ruling Coalition for Democratic Change.

If one were to couple the mayor’s statements with recent acts of violence, this would lead to a decision by the ICC to open an investigation into violence in Liberia because it falls within the category of crimes against humanity which will lead to future prosecutions of state-supported atrocities. Failure by the President of Liberia to forcefully and publicly reject and sanction the mayor may be deemed as silent support of Koijee. Public Policy

To me, this action on the part of the minister is an insult to the Liberian masses. The average Liberian lives on less than US$1.00 a day. McGill's loan to acquire a mansion, sends a bad message to everyone and solidifies the notion that the only quick way to get rich is working for government. This action on the part of the Minister of state undermines the "Pro-poor Agenda" News Politics 

George Weah’s CDC To Put Taylor’s Agenda Back On The Table

Res 127] calling on Nigeria to turn over the former Liberian President Charles Taylor to the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL).

It was the Connecticut lawmaker’s push, along with that of then Senator Barack Obama that eventually forced the hand of…

God Help Us If CDC Took Power In Liberia!!

  The Editor, Everyone talks about how corruption is crippling our country, but can you imagine how backwards our country would be if these goons were running our government?? Congo man say  ‘ things would be worser’!  (Re “CDC Primary: Losers Cry Foul Amid Bribery Claims”) They can’t even run their own party elections without corruption, intimidation, and violence, so why would anyone expect anything different from them if, God forbid, their standard bearer (Weah) became of President of Liberia in 2017?

      Mr. Editor: Are we being played for fools by Rep. Forh? (Re “Rep. Forh Reacts to Recording Scandal”) According to the above mentioned article, Rep. Forh says he was just “joking” when he said that “The money (US$400, 00) in questioned must be divided among us; you eat some, I eat some, the minister eat some”! Look, if you didn’t know Forh was an old crook, you’d probably give him the benefit of the doubt and naively call his request to STEAL other people’s money a “joke”! But…

How George Weah and Samuel Tweah Destroyed CDC

      By; Paul Jackson Is it more than just a coincidence that only the letter “T” separates the name “Tweah” from “Weah”, or is there something more sinister to this political ‘bromance’ between these two CDC stalwarts? It seems like the CDC, through some of its powerful members have begun outsourcing its political conscience to the misdirection and gross misrule of President Sirleaf-The Liberia people absolutely have nothing against two powerful political parties building consensus or their leaders working together to better the country, but this cannot and…
