Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office of the President of the Republic of Liberia. But some of these people are somersaulting suddenly and are singing praises to Weah. You will not believe who they’re scapegoats, THE PROGRESSIVES! Op-ed 

NDC Calls On Legislature To Oppose Weah’s State of Emergency

    For Immediate Release   The National Democratic Coalition (NDC) categorically opposes the state of emergency declared by President George Weah and is annoyed by the brutal and confusing ways in which the proclamation has been given effect by some state security forces and unformed criminals around the country. The NDC, therefore, calls on the legislature of the Republic of Liberia to oppose and revoke the state of emergency proclaimed by president Weah and uphold support for the national health emergency earlier declared under the public health law by…

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 

Pre and Post 1980: The Untold Reasons of the Liberian Civil War and Conflicts

By Lawrence S. Tuah It is often said the civil war spoiled Liberia and reduced it to nothing, and that the progressive class must be blamed for everything that is wrong with Liberia, that is how the conservatives want us to interpret the history of Liberia. But, is that how things really are, that the people shouldn’t consider the objective conditions and systematic straitjacket put in place by the establishment before 1980 that inevitably precipitated the outburst of the crisis, absolutely no! In this month of April which brings important…

April 12, 1980–40 years later: Surviving the Coup that Transformed Liberia

Liberia erupted in violence on April 12, 1980 as Master Sergeant Samuel Kanyon Doe seized power from President William Tolbert, ending 133 years of political dominance by Americo-Liberians. Americo-Liberians traced their ancestry to African Americans and Black British subjects who immigrated to Africa and became the founders of the Republic of Liberia, in power from 1847-1980. In October 1985, having promised to return Liberia to civilian rule, Doe was declared the winner of Liberia’s first multi-party elections. The results were largely rejected by the international community after his own staff took the ballots…

Recently on Truth FM and Ok FM in Liberia, Dr. Nyan continued to provide COVID-19 Awareness through radio broadcast relayed in many parts of the country. He supported the use of face mask, advised against “self-medicating with Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine,” and described rumors of the link between 5G and Coronavirus outbreak as a mere conspiracy theory that should not be believed.  Op-ed

Liberia has been looted and turned into a wasteland of neocolonial capitalism. The havoc wrought on the society by Weah is revealing of national neglect and the intense level of contempt Ellen and her cabal must-have for poor and working people to have orchestrated this farce on the fatherland. Weah's actions have angered the people, and they resolved to vote the CDC out at any electoral poll. And here comes the dubious plan Weah has reached. So, we are not astonished upon reading the list which comprises names of familiar stooges. Op-ed 

Five (5) Criminal Charges That Must Be Brought Against Ndubusi Nkwuka Nwabudike

    By Martin K. N. Kollie I am not a lawyer. Neither do I claim to be a legal scholar nor a paralegal. I am an activist and an emerging economist. But if I were the Minister of Justice (Attorney General), I would have been prosecuting A. Ndubusi Nkwuka Nwabudike on these charges or criminal offenses by now. Ndubusi has committed a number of grave crimes. These are indictable offenses under the laws of Liberia. Why isn’t an indictment being drawn by now? The credibility of MOJ, Supreme Court, OSG,…

Liberia needs resiliency to fight the COVID-19 pandemic through a national mobilization effort. There need to be instructions on ways to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. The George Weah-led CDC government has a wide window to really make a difference in the lives of Liberians and the economy. The government cannot just imitate other societies or blindly follow global directives simply to take advantage of international institutional funding to line the pockets of George Weah and his friends and cronies. If the George Weah-led CDC government wavers in any way-shape-or-form, the opposition should be ready to force the hand of the government whenever an iota of neglect occurs in addressing pertinent issues and concerns of the Liberian people regarding COVID-19. COVID-19 should strengthen and unite all Liberians. The opposition should not allow George Weah to use the virus to tilt the playing field in his favor, especially regarding suppressing critique, evaluation of how the government handles the virus. Moreover, President George Weah should not be allowed politicization of COVID-19 through the use of paramilitary force, public rhetoric to intimidate, or songs to deceive, and cheering rallies to give the wrong impression will not suffice for what is yet to come.

Liberia – Mitigating Socioeconomic Impact of COVID-19

    Francis Nyepon   A coronavirus recession in Liberia is inevitable. COVID-19 commonly known as the coronavirus could lay siege and overwhelm critical socio-economic sectors in the country. The pandemic poses an existential threat to public health as much as an unprecedented socioeconomic danger to every Liberian. Urgent actions desperately need to be taken to mitigate the severe impact of the pandemic. Like most other countries in the Global South, Liberia, has gotten a reprieve from COVID-19 since the outbreak of the pandemic ravaged China and now spreading across…

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.

It was the True Whig Party that made Samuel Doe, not the Progressive Class

    The Editor, Can there ever be a balanced approach to Liberian history? There are some who will like us to believe that everything was good until 1980. Folks on the right blame all the problems in Liberia on the progressives class and that to me is totally wrong because the coup that took place was led by the People Redemption council and the Liberian army. You can’t blame the progressives for the failure of the so-called revolution led by Samuel Doe because they did not actually take overpower…

When the aggressors play the victims’ card against—the Progressive Class

    The Editor We cannot ignore the fact that remnants of the conservative Americo-Liberian caste not only dominate social media platforms but have also embarked on a vigorous campaign of slander and calumny against those we call the Progressive class. Each day that passes by, these apologists of the former ruling caste bombard us with loads of anti-progressive diatribes. And the most interesting but also appalling thing is, they have taken solace in revisionist falsification of our political history to airbrush Liberian history against those who took part in…

No educated people have not failed Liberia, voters failed Liberia!

When majority voters lack knowledge of historical and political antecedence, they turn to harm themselves by taking decision-based on fallacies such as “Educated people have failed us”. But as long as some of us remain active, we will continue to provide counters to their misconceptions that often lead them to take unpopular decision that affects everyone. In the first place, Liberia was not ripe when she put in for her independence in 1847 (even though she was being threatened by other colonial masters like Great Britain and France). Equally, the…
