November 18 marked the thirty-seventh anniversary of the Jonestown Massacre in Guyana. On that fatal Saturday in 1978, over nine hundred members of the Peoples Temple died from ingestion of cyanide-laced Flavor-Aid. Their leader, the Reverend Jim Jones, died from gunshot wounds. Seven miles away, American Congressman Leo Ryan and four members of his party lay dead on the Port Kaituma airstrip.

After all these years, several questions about the tragedy remain unanswered.

The deporting of 12 million undocumented immigrants will make a number of businesses rich. But before you jump all over Trump spare a thought for the Obama administration. It is no secret that Obama has deported the greatest number of persons in living memory. By the time he leaves office his tally will be about half of the 12 million that Trump plans to deport.

It is ironic that Obama has criticized Trump’s policy as being hard on families when he is causing suffering on a daily basis. According to Obama, ‘ it is the imagery of Trump’s proposals that will hurt. The sight of children being wrenched away from parents is most troubling.  Continue reading
