USA: Five Factors That Helped US Democracy Resist Trump’s Election Onslaught – Tom McCarthy | The Guardian UK

Trump’s trashing of norms has been harmful but decentralization, turnout, transparency, the courts and the media played a key role 

Tom McCarthy | The Guardian UK

It is not clear yet whether US democracy “survived” the 2020 presidential election unscathed.

IF DONALD TRUMP’S PLAYBOOK OF SEEKING TO UNDERMINE A LEGITIMATE ELECTION BECOMES STANDARD REPUBLICAN PRACTICE FOR FUTURE ELECTIONS – refuse to concede, make false claims of fraud, fan the flames of conspiracy, sue everywhere and refuse to certify any win by the other side – THEN AMERICAN DEMOCRACY MIGHT ALREADY HAVE SUSTAINED A FATAL WOUND.       Continue reading

GUYANA: Oil monitoring (we cannot compete); domestic violence (we cannot condone) – GHK Lall Column

  Nov 29, 2020  NewsThe GHK Lall Column 

>>>Encouraging Events, Disturbing Developments<<<

Kaieteur News – Vincent Adams, former Head of the EPA, highlighted the need for training and compensating our people for monitoring and effective compliance with our laws and regulations. I am encouraged that Dr. Adams pinpointed this policing of our ballooning oil industry, which has relevance in other resource areas. To be ahead of the multi-nationals, we must be better than them.    Continue reading

Thank you for posting this. This was back when Mike Wallace actually took an interest in digging to find out the truth.

29 VENEZUELAN REFUGEES, 16 MINORS among them, were missing for a day after the Trinidadian government put them in wooden boats back to Venezuela. They are safe now but the story hasn’t ended

Nina Rancel | Caracas Chronicles

On Sunday, November, 22nd, 16 Venezuelan minors ranging four months to 14 years old, nine women and four men were sent back to Venezuela from Trinidad and Tobago, a little after 11:00 a.m. A yellow level weather alert had been issued by climate authorities. They were supposed to have a habeas corpus hearing, scheduled for that afternoon at 2:00 p.m.; then rescheduled to an earlier time at 12:30 p.m., upon insistence by the lawyer handling the case, Nafeesa Mohammed. They were forced to leave before the hearing.       Continue reading

GUYANA: Places and Things Waiting for an appropriate name – By Francis Quamina Farrier

– By Francis Quamina Farrier

There are quite a number of places and things, many public property here in Guyana, which are waiting to be given a proper name or a change of name. Way back in colonial British Guiana, for example, a small portion of the Potaro river downstream from the Kaieteur Falls, was christened “Garraway stream.” It was so named to the honour of the popular Berbice-born cricketer of the day, Patrick Garraway. At that point of the Potaro where the river is sort of flowing serenely after tumbling 741 feet over the Kaieteur’s lip, there is a bridge over peaceful waters.      Continue reading

OPINION: Are the Pastors doing enough? – By Yvonne Sam

By Yvonne Sam

— Sadly men of the cloth are not behaving as they ought.

Has the church lost its influence? Has it become weaker? Are the pastors hiding?

A shroud of darkness has enveloped the land, and I am yet to see the pastors make a historical stand. In 2015, I wrote an article denouncing the rising rate of femicide in Guyana, and called on, not only the government, but also the church, to make efforts to ensure that we stamped out the seeming Guyanese curse — that of our men being responsible for putting our women in hearses. www.kaieteurnewsonline.com/2015/12/05/guyanese-women-find-themselves-in-a-catch-22-situation-2/.      Continue reading

The Great Relocation: Americans Are Relocating By The Millions Because They Can Feel What Is Coming

The Great Relocation: Americans Are Relocating By The Millions Because They Can Feel What Is Coming

Epic Economist video – November 23, 2020

Millions of Americans are getting out of big cities in a movement that is being called by analysts as The Great Relocation. Entire families that have moved to urban areas over the past decades are now relocating to smaller, safer cities amid mounting social turbulence, another spike in confirmed viral cases, looming lockdowns, and the increasing cost of living. Many have reported to feel that harder days are coming, while others without a job and federal assistance had no choice other than leaving their homes to find more affordable housing elsewhere.      Continue reading
