   Feb 28, 2021- Kaieteur News –  The GHK Lall Column

It was a dark and dirty week.
A fifth member of the AFC resigned from party membership, because the thinking was the group has “lost its way.” No member has said the same thing publicly, as yet, about the PNC, but I have heard the same thing also uttered quietly that the PNC has lost its way, too.

From my perspective, the new PPP government, given its leadership deceptions and membership corruptions, is yet another example of a major group that has also lost its way.        Continue reading

USA Politics: Why The Democrats Should Not Impeach Donald Trump – Simon Jenkins | The Guardian

The wiser move would be to let Trump drift into exile, not stoke the sense of grievance among his base

There is a good reason for America’s Congress to humiliate Donald Trump this week, just days from his end of term. His incitement of violence against the Capitol merits his instant removal, as it does the alternative of impeachment.

BEYOND THAT, ALL REASONS FOR REMOVING TRUMP ARE BAD ONES. They would deflect attention from Joe Biden’s victory and transition into office. And they would run a bigger risk.            Continue reading
