America is Dying: Indigenous Native American Prophecy

Indigenous Native American Prophecy

For those that care, the narrator is Floyd Red Crow Westerman.

Comments on this video:

Wisdom just oozed off the screen with this man, a beautiful, spiritual people, their language mathematically is the most sophisticated on the planet. We could learn so much from the 1st nation people, unfortunately, we are to primitive to understand!

Only after the last tree is cut down, Only after the last fish has been caught, only after the last river is poisoned, only then will you find money cannot be eaten. Live with Mother nature and life, not against it ,

May the GREAT CREATOR of all living things help us to find our way back to him.

Guyana: Govt. transactions sluggish; generate cost for both citizens and firms – IDB

There is no ‘ethnic impetus’ with regards to domestic abuse – Caribbean Voice

From Caribbean Voice – A registered tax exempt NGO

With respect to a recent letter in the Guyana media, The Caribbean Voice (TCV) categorically and emphatically states that there is no ‘ethnic impetus’ for domestic violence. There never has been and anyone familiar with the literature will know that no research, survey, poll or study has ever found ‘ethnic impetus’ for domestic violence.

The letter cited a recent article in the Stabroek News, by Queens, New York City based lawyer and activist, Aminta Khilawan, and then stated “I believe she did not go far enough in capturing the racial elements in cases of domestic violence, suicide and abuse among Guyanese.”              Continue reading

As the Senate attempts to set rules for President Trump’s impeachment trial, at least one Republican is expressing concern about the proceedings. Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said in an interview Tuesday that she was disturbed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s promise of “total coordination” with the White House. Murkowski’s comments mark a rare instance of dissent for the Republican Party, which has been unified behind President Trump until now. McConnell needs 51 votes to set the rules for the hearing. Republicans have a thin majority of 53 seats in the Senate.        Continue reading

Word of this has come from Prime Minister Mia Mottley, who said her administration would be enforcing the law.

Mottley said Attorney General Dale Marshall has already done the initial work in relation to necessary changes to the legislation, which she said Cabinet would review and approve “shortly”.
