But should we take a politician’s word by merely…

George Weah, Ousmane Bamba, The Russians, And How 2017 Elections Were Rigged – Episode 1 

  By Martin K. N. Kollie The second Liberian Republic has had a lot of ups and downs. Between 1980 and 2017, no presidential candidate has ever won a landslide in any given election as compared to NPP flagbearer Charles G. Taylor. 13 political parties participated in the 1997 presidential election. Taylor won all of them at once with 75.33% (468,443 votes). There was no second round or run-off.  This was indeed a landslide victory. There were also 13 counties at that time but Taylor still could not win 12…

Frustrations mount against George Weah led government as hard-times grip citizens amidst high level corruption

According to reports, the economic situation has worsened beyond imagination,…

President Weah violates all the laws of his country with a bellicose fist!

  By Robert Moncio Kpadeh   George Weah runs a hawkish kleptocracy (a criminal empire). He is a lawless President who violates all the laws of his country with a bellicose fist. His citizens are “dirt poor”, jobless and dying on a daily basis from extreme hunger. His economy wallows in total shambles. In the name of “Stimulus Package”, he shamelessly begged the IMF for a loan to buy rice, oil, and beans for his people (an unsustainable food distribution that now seems delusional)— meaning he is a father who…

By Martin K. N. Kollie We cannot sit here and allow Min. Samuel D. Tweah to distort the narrative, especially ahead of 2020 and 2023 polls. In just 30 months as Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Samuel D. Tweah, Jr. has told many LIES. And most partisans of CDC, including some senior officials of government, have become so comfortable with his usual LIES. Either because of their ignorance or because they just have to praise this “king” even though he is NAKED. It is all about survival (struggle for…

We will stand by the people and our country and not the fake opposition!

  By Robert Kpadeh The nefarious conduct we see some opposition folks displaying currently and the undercurrents obtaining within are not reassuring and do not guarantee any genuine intent for viable CHANGE as being heralded so loudly. It would seem that some are merely clamoring for political power to basically prioritize their vested socio-economic interests above the national interest rather than executing real essential change or departing from the perennial debauchery of the country — and putting the foremost emphasis on the people. May we state for the record that…
