DR MINNIS MOVES IN TO PROTECT HIS GIRL LANISHA

So Lanisha Rolle, the troublesome, quarrelsome, incompetent Minister of Youth Sports and Community Affairs resigned in a long letter to the Governor General.

PAKIESHA PARKER EDGECOMBE: EXAMPLE OF WHAT NOT TO DO

It was a textbook example of what not to do.  Do not start a squabble with a constituent.  Just leave certain things alone, especially when you know you are vulnerable. The MP for West Grand Bahama committed that error on 16 February 2021, when Jackson Cooper, a resident and voter of Grand Bahama asked the […]

NOBODY BELIEVES THE LYING FIGURES OF HUBERT MINNIS

The Prime Minister Hubert Minnis was a master at fanciful stories, boorish attacks and low life behaviour in the House of Assembly on Wednesday 27 January 2021.

IS SANITY BACK IN THE U. S. WITH JOE BIDEN?

On Wednesday 20 January 2021, Joseph Biden Jr became the 46th President of the United States.

WHERE IS THE JUSTICE FROM THE BAHAMAS JUDICIARY?

A Chief Justice Sir Brian Moree noted for pomp, pageantry and technology but where is the mention of justice. BIS photo.

THE FNM PRESS WORKING FULL TIME TO ATTACK BRAVE DAVIS

The  Free National Movement, its leadership and its trolls are in full throated attack mode on the Leader of the PLP Philip Brave Davis.

BRENT SYMONETTE WANTS PETER TURNQUEST’S OLD JOB?

The relentless attacks by his own side have continued ever since Peter Turnquest fell on his sword on 25 November 2020, admitting that he had to go as Minister of Finance and Deputy Prime Minister.  The jockeying began immediately as to who would replace him.  Many said it would Renward Wells the ambitious and unprincipled […]

THE FNM POPPY SHOW MARRIAGE

The FNM is a homophobic organization. To be sure there are homosexuals aplenty in the party but they hide their light under a bushel. The talk around town is that the Competent Authority sent out a decree last year to all those who had their eyes on FNM nominations for Parliament that they had better get married. The exception to the rule is Travis Robinson of course. But that is one and done. The past is the past.

THE PRIME MINISTER REVERSES COURSE ON COVID CHANGES – THEN REVERSES COURSE AGAIN

So about 4 p.m. on Friday 30 2020, the equivalent in journalism to the dead of night, the Government published the rules that are to govern us under their new emergency powers which are to last until 30 November. Now remember that the Minister of Tourism and the Prime Minister were both boasting about how […]

THE TRAGEDY AND DISGRACE THAT TRUMP IS AS U S PRESIDENT

When looking at the reports of the news that that U S President Donald Trump was Covid positive, we all thought “ good for his ass”.  We told you so.  In The Bahamas, we would say: “you too stupid”.  But when you watch the coverage in the U S media there is this false equivalence; […]

DO THE COVID RULES MAKE SENSE AND DO THEY WORK?

The Prime Minister Hubert Minnis, wife and grandson are in Abaco this weekend. The reports are that he joined several ministers of the Government up there.
