'Adultery email' shows SODELPA weaknesses


Is SODELPA going to stuff it up for the 2018 elections?
Instead of getting its act together on policies that will win them votes next year, the party hierarchy is caught up in email exposures that reveal poor strategy and solidarity in party ranks.
This week's clanger by Saniana Radrodro is not only an example of the shabby communications she provided for SODELPA in 2014, but the fact that SODELPA stills doesn't know how to play to win.
As losers in an election structured to favour military, SODELPA got 15 out of 50 seats and nearly 30 per cent of the vote, a good base to build on.
But a year out from the country going to the polls again, emails calling out each other's adulterous behaviour is exactly the crap that affects the votes of ordinary Fijians.
People in SODELPA, from the likes of Sainiana Radroro to party leader Sitiveni Rabuka himself, need to get it together quickly if it's going to topple the military government of FB.
Sainiana Radroro has explained herself but it's no wonder the party's vulnerable with the kind of correspondence she's putting out for anyone to leak.
Does SODELPA want to win the 2018 elections or not?



Saniana Radroro's email about Rabuka's call for a national poll on adultery
wrote:
Ni Yadra na veiwekani. I'm optimistic we are all in good health this
Rein it in, please!
morning.

I communicate to register my concern and personal disappointment over recent pronouncements by the Party Leader MG Sitiveni Rabuka in the news media specifically the Fiji Times.
I woke up yesterday to phone calls from people over what Mr Rabuka had stated in response to escalating crime rates in Fiji that appeared as front page on this last Tuesday morning the 28th of August, 2017.
In his response as per attached pictures of his statement, the Party leader is calling for a public poll to be conducted to determine how many leaders are engaging in adulterous affairs.
How many are divorcees and etc. the alleged quote by him is as follows:
"It would be very interesting to do a poll at our national leadership level to gauge how many leaders hold moral views.
How many are in adulterous relationships or are divorcees, how many have caused deaths with or without malice, and how many
Pull it together, please!
condone these erosions of moral values ".

This to me shows a man that views himself as above others and one that wants to project he is above reproach.
I am sad. Without going into a personal attack on the Party Leader, let me just say that when his name was being mooted for party leader, some of our leaders asked whether he would be good.
In response, I had personally shared that I was only concerned of his apparent bitterness which shines through emails for example that he sends to the public likewise his public pronouncements that he makes referring to what his own daughter had to suffer. In the process he walks over people like me.
Now in this latest statement he makes, I wonder whether we have the right leader.
After all I want to ask him to tell us who is he referring to in his statement because I can easily pick out all of us who are divorcees in this party and now live happy lives. Also I know of many whose adulterous lives were public, and know likewise that this party has people who had illegitimate children before marriages and some during Marriage, but it's not in our place to judge them or anyone for that matter.
The inference I get from the Party Leader's statement is that it's okay to have affairs as many as you can have and even have children in the process whilst you are married but as long as you stay married. As a female the statement for me sends scary messages. As a feminist as well, I am disappointed to say the least.
I ask that all decent people in this party please encourage Mr Rabuka to reexamine his intentions for joining Sodelpa. Because this party after all was established to assist indigenous Fijians progress, not to be walked over by the very person who has recently joined the party to lead it.
In another statement he also said which is on video that I captured at the recent LeadersForum, that he is someone that doesn't like engaging in protests.
And yet we were there to gather signatures for a petition for free and fair elections which itself is forms of passive resistance or protest so to speak.
I strongly encourage that Mr Rabuka be trained on public engagements and pronouncements. Like I've shared he shows signs of a disturbed and psychologically damaged person. I hope this bitterness which perhaps has been mounting due to what he feels was done to him by we the indigenous people in 1999 resulting in his defeat at the polls, can be flushed out of his system. I am worried that He continues to display for example the character of someone willing to destroy people in his self righteous retribution process. As long as he is not out to avenge those that have wronged him in his view.
In another example, In a recent media release last year he had also claimed publicly that his own people from SVT and his traditional leader had been responsible in stabbing him in the back during SVT days and they were engaged in ousting him from the position of Chairman ofCakaudrove Provincial Council.
These public pronouncements make me really question his ability to remove his personal bitterness from his leadership.
I leave these here and seek your understanding to help us help him help Fiji.
Is he the right leader given to us by our maker or was it manipulated for him to assume the position? Such things will reflect on his performance. And I hope he does not become a liability for the party and for all freedom lovers in Fiji. We want to win next year's elections and we need a leader that helps us be victorious.
You will note his statements of recent are now the subject of jokes on social media by politicians from other parties. That's sad and this definitely will cost us as a party. I hope we don't get to not only lose next year but in fact win less seats than in 2014.
Vinaka Saka and may good sense prevail today. God bless always.
Sai.

Editor,
When Will The Bastardry Stop?
Dr K William writes " ... given the clear government disregard for the physical abuses and mental degradation during the more than four years many refugees have been imprisoned on Manus Island and on Nauru ... It is laughable that [ Immigration Minister ] Peter Dutton has now been announced as the minister for a larger, less manageable Department of Home Affairs. To date, he has been totally unable, or very reluctant, to resolve these issues and has taken Australia from a country of fairness and decency to one recognised globally as not adhering to basic human rights. When is this bastardry going to stop? ( Canberra Times 2/09/17 ).
That's a very good question posed by Dr Williams.
It's a question applicable in other settings.
Remember once Fiji was said to be what the rest of the world should be.
What's been said about Fiji these days after the serial rape of democracy there?
Sincerely,

Just shows not much has been done to seek the views of the public and interested parties and that Sodelpa has not looked at what is appropriate, proportionate and in the public interest.Could this be the core of Sodelpas campaign, on whether politicians have an adulterous behaviour?Just imagine what the ordinary Fijian would think when they see this.They want people to agree that we have to look at this issue with a partisan view and accept that in all our parties, as much as it hurts us, there are people who do not represent our values? For some politicians to suggest that it is only one party doing it is wrong.

This issue does nothing for the people of Fiji but to only abuse adulterous politicians online and publicly.It will probably lead to having 80% of adulterous politicians being verbally and physically abused.Why couldn't these political parties have their candidates vetted before being selected to represent the party?Why couldn't they have a parties politicians/candidates code of conduct?Shouldn't this issue be a political parties internal affairs problem?Let those who have membership of their chosen political party decide on these matters.

Let us look at an issue that is of public interest regarding law enforcement personnel and corruption.Will politicians ever intend to reform elements of the police disciplinary system to improve transparency and justice and to strengthen protections for police whistleblowers?Will government ever launch a public consultation on introducing for such measures?Submissions to the consultation will be important in helping to inform the Government’s thinking.The integrity of the men and women who work in the police service of Fiji is critical to public trust in policing. Real or perceived misconduct or corruption dents that trust and makes policing by consent more difficult. The vast majority of police officers behave appropriately and conscientiously, which makes it even more important to root out misconduct and malpractice and hold those responsible to account.People want to ensure that the systems and processes that deal with misconduct by police officers are robust, independent and transparent to the public.

Assuming this communication by Sai is a true reflection on the personalities and characters vying for national political leadership, there is more reason to be concerned about our nation. There is a time and a place for everything under the sun. It requires much wisdom, genuine humility, perception and understanding, purity of heart, and great courage to be in the right place, saying and doing the right things and become that effective agent of positive change. Such a combination of qualities are more rare amongst us, for it is not necessarily the type of character that our modern systems of morals, education and business strive for.

Rabuka is to be commended for highlighting the need for us to protect our morals and ethics and to be remind us all that our spiritual state does affect our physical circumstances. "Righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people" But some may take umbrance by the fact that Rabuka the messenger and the message he is trying to communicate do not match.

Sai has used the above to question the suitability of Rabuka's appointment as the party leader. This may be her exercising her freedom to speak, but therein lies the rub. Sai has a personal stake in this matter. So her message is being clouded or shrouded by her personal motives and circumstances. The above scenarion is being repeated.

Both Rabuka and Sai are part of a syndicate who have promoted themselves as the better leaders of our nation. They are engaging in a personal conversation about a personal topic of great imporatance- our personal morality and national leadership. This exchange has become public, and it does not help either Rabuka, or Sai or the party they both belong to. But it benefits those who seek the demise of the party and the people involved.

Matthew 7:1-2 (ESV)
1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.
2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.

Even Jesus said to the woman who was accused(key word)of adultery, "I also will not condemn you. Go and SIN NO MORE."

Please Sai and Rabuka, Forgive and build each other up. The opponents might simply win by default. Let us focus on them and not waste our energy fighting against each other.

Rabuka has been chosen as leader and many are looking to him to deliver us the victory for our up coming battle.

May God alone Judge and Bless us as we strive to make this country a better place for everyone.

The infighting between opposition parties will only make the FFP win again.

NFP is the only one who has a chance so does SODELPA as long as it does not bring in its primitive policies again.

I still think that FFP will win as the oppositions are too weak and not united and ready to govern Fiji again.

Adultery .Hmmm. Isnt that par for the course. Mara and that Muslim lady doctor in Sigatoka, Rabuka and Wainikiti, Chaudhary and Asha Lakhan! Maybe this is the reason Rajendra Chaudhary is raving and ranting on his FB page and asking for Sai's head. Junior Chaudhary likes to point fingers at others without noting the log up his arse!

Tomasi said...

To think that FFP will win again because of the poor quality of opposition is to assume that they had legitimately 'won' a properly conducted election in 2014. It is also to assume that the same process would be replicated to hand them the win in 2018. The truth is far from that.

FFP engineered the election process in 2014, controlled its processes, manipulated the people and systems involved, in order to obtain the results that favoured them and which legitimised the military dictatorship they had fostered upon us. Since then, they have embarked on a mix of strategies in order to strengthen that dictatorship in the hands of the two kings and their cronies.

In 2014, FFP needed to win for the sake of legitimacy, respectability, credibility and survival. Had they not won, the realities would have dramatically changed and some of the key personalities parading around the country and globetrotting would have been locked up in the re-education centres at Naboro or Korovou.

However, the stakes are even higher in 2018. FFP realises that they have more compelling reasons to win one way or the other. Just as in 2014, FFP has no other option but to win fairly or by crook. Stealing the elections again is nothing to them. If they can steal the government, rob us of millions of dollars of tax revenues, tortured and murdered innocent people, rigged our justice system, bribed and controlled our security forces, silently installed an islamic caliphate, control all lands and national wealth, deleted the rights of Fijian chiefs and wrote their own constifusion, what is an election to them? It is just the logical, necessary, critical, nut on the bolt for perpetual and absolute control over a nation that has largely become a group of welfare recipients and beggars who have lost their sense of pride and self respect and fear of God.

But hang on folks, 2018 will never be like 2014. This time around, it will be much more difficult, because of the people and because of one person -Sitiveni L Rabuka. Rabuka alone represents the single-most feared threat to the BaiYum dictatorship. While FFP has plans 1, 2 and 3, Siti will have in place measures and counter-strategies to nullify FFP's plans. In terms of military strategy alone, Bai is a mere toddler playing in the sands of destiny that Siti knows only too well. While BaiYum may need maps and directions to refer to, Siti knows every move like the back of his hand.

I do not recommend the militarisation of Government. However, the twin bullies of Fiji now have a master bully to deal with. Both of these parties are responsible for Fiji's current banana state, so let us just let them sort themselves out in a fair and just fight. FFP cannot cheat this this time, never mind NADRA or TADRA. According to BG Sitiveni Rabuka, there is no way Bai and Yum will be in Government come post election 2018. Sa dri yani.

There is a rumour that one or two officials that went with PM to Rio, Brazil told their friends that Mr PM led them into a strip club. Well, if thats his idea of fun thats ok with me. But in the hype of sex crimes and violence against women and children, the PM decided to go and watch young girls show their privates, thats wicked. What happened in the strip club nobody knows. Nemani Delaibatiki of Fiji Sun can ask PM himself and print it for all to see.
However, if there are people who will vote for sexual perverts than I guess thats their choice. On both sides we have sexual issues. No one is perfect though.

By the looks of it, Rambo just can't seem to change up and that fiasco within SODELPA is bound to bring them down if they don't pull themselves together and get a grip, especially the coup ringleader himself who is leading them.

Disturbed and psychologically damaged persons are nothing new considering how they're all caught up in their tiny ego that they just can't seem to let the bitterness go and just move the fack along already. Meanwhile Rajuta Chaudhary is enjoying the show from his little hole somewhere overseas picking on anything and anyone not realizing his own head stuck up his arse that no one gives a fuck.

An opposition that cannot sort itself out and work together for fack sake is doomed to fail giving Frankie and his playmate Ayarse another win for next year's polls. Just hoping NA DA or whatever that Paki election company is called, doesn't bring its crappy reputation to Suva and just leave it back there in Islamabad while doing its job without doing anyone any favors like some "certain politicians".

Isnt Rabuka a preacher?

Has he not had kids with other women whilst married? He was a big-time womanizer.

Practice what you preach Mr Fake christian Rabuka...your sins will stay with you in this life and the next. There is a place in Hall for adulterers like you. I hope it greets you soon so you will understand what pain your wife went through.

Did your wife have any kids to other men while you were married?

chootu bhai said...

If Rabuka is a fake and it will be hard for NFP to win as majority of Fijians will not support another Indian PM that leaves FFP to win government again, others are history and once FLP will never win unless Chaudhary leaves the party.

Spare A Thought For The Plight of The Rohingya Muslims Persecuted By The Myanmar State.
I don't know the number slaughtered but over 300,000 have fled to seek refuge in Banladesh. The UN has condemned the atrocities and violence - burning down of Rohingya villages, rape and mass murder - as " ethnic cleansing ". International observers have been banned from making an objective assessment of the ground realities there.
Zeid Hussein, the UN Human Rights Commissioner, said it was " textbook example " of ethnic cleansing.
The Myanmar State has not responded positively despite the goodwill shown by the international community ( France 24 Live, 12/09 ).
We had it bad when we had our first military coup in Fiji and subsequent ones but nothing compares with the persecution and plight of the Rohingya Muslims.
Spare a prayer for these tortured people - our fellow human beings - being oppressed and exterminated because of their ethnicity .
Sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

Coup 4.5 can you please put up a post about this saga in Parliament including Frank Bainimarama' knee jerk reaction and that ignorant idiot Colonel Jone Kalouniwai's unwarranted response. Boy, didn't Hon Parmod tickle a few sensitive big arseholes, and in no time they squealed and defecated all that stinking shit in response. Bwahahaha! Hon Parmod was just stating the facts for chrissake! Frank Bainimarama slept on the job and the army's reaction says much about the mentality of the army. They cannot even defend themselves against barely-armed, skirt-wearing and flipflop-clod so called terrorist elements in Golan, and surrendered so cowardly and yet here they are again threatening and intefering with the very hallowed fundamental processes of democratic parliamentary accountability they are supposed to protect. Colonel Jone Kalouniwai go pull the muzzle of you and your like minded cohorts in the barracks out of your arseholes and go do some real work to make our tax money and your overpaid underworked salaries worth the sweat of our brows. Or if there is nothing to do, go play cowboys in yhe cassava patch where Frank dashed and invite tourists and locals to come watch as a demonstration of how the PM actually did his job as RFMF Commander in charge of those supposedly protecting Fiji from threats to its security. And also maybe a skit of how Fiji army dropped their arms and pants and got fucked in the arse by Al Nushra. Otherwise just shut the fuck up!!

I second the motion by anon 9.39 AM.
A public discussion on the Fiji Military's role and competence in protecting the citizens is of critical importance as we prepare an informed citizenry before Election 2018.
The Fiji military and its former commander and current coupist PM Frank Bainimarama is promoting a myth about how the Fiji military made sacrifices to protect the public. The reality of the role of the Fiji military is very different. They have been a party to ALL the coups in Fiji.

Sir Penaia Ganilau said...

I pardon the first coup in 1987 so Rabuka and the military got away, today they are above the law and call themselves the final custodians of Fiji when they are the real coup masters and culprits.
The elections from next years budget will come out of the RFMF budget since they are the ones who decide to remove the democratically elected governments four times.

South Auckland's Bula Centre, which has received more than $2.5 million in government funding, closed after receiving the lowest possible ranking from the Education Review Office.
The review found problems with financial management, governance and health and safety.

The closure has left the families of 21 children and seven staff in limbo.
"Next monday will be four weeks that we have not been paid. And I am so worried for the staff. It's their livelihood, it's really affecting them," Centre Manager Nirshad Rokodi told 1 NEWS.
The Ministry of Education says the Bula Centre must fix the problems highlighted in the Education Review Office report before October 12 or its licence will be suspended.

I read comments on the Fiji exposed forum from time to time. Recently the NFP's promise of a $5 living wage is being debated. The ideas and comments posted on the page reflect a dumb as shit society who have no idea how the world works and how their governments and employers have been screwing them for decades. Is it any wonder that a cassava patch running form 4 failure is our PM. For any body who is reading this the $5 minimum wage is easily payable by many employers and most of the bigger responsible ones are already paying close to or better than the $5. Hell all of my employees are getting over $3.50 per hour and most are either over $5 or just about there. The problem in Fiji is that 268,000 people out of the 400,000 employed are earning below the poverty line which is $180 a week. This is about 68% of the work force. Which simply means that 68% of our people are consuming very little of any thing except food. Our cost of living is on par with the rest of the world and in many cases higher. Had it not been for our extended family living system and the unofficial leases that our itaukei people have allowed us to use and built lean to homes on the majority of Fijians would be homeless and hungry. The average cost of a 2 bedroom flat is about $500 a month in an engineer approved planned home and that too in areas that are far from major cities and towns. Living closer you will be paying about $800. How can someone making $180 a week or less afford a rented flat, transport costs, food and utilities. The answer is he or she cant. So a living wage is long overdue. How can NFP assist the employers at least in the early stages. They can first reduce import duties, second they can revalue our dollar, 3rd they can provide a double tax rebate to all employers for the first year on the difference in total wages between what they were paying before and under the new rate,4th they can allow all employers to claim up to %100 tax deduction on the FNPF payments which this government reduced to %50 a few years ago. In short it is the carrot and stick approach. Let the business make money but on the flip side make them pay there staff better. In less than 1 year these business will start making better money then they ever did as suddenly 268000 people have money left over to buy that extra pair of shoes or enjoy a bottle of liquor etc. Modern economies function on the basis of consumption and the primary revenue generator for the government is VAT. The more people spend the more the government makes. And the only way to make people spend more is to give them more money.Classic example is when the Winston $500 was released by FNPF it was like X-MAX for about a month. How this concept alludes some people is beyond me. It is the simple basics of running a countries economy which is taught in elementary economics. To say that Biman does not know what he is talking about is making yourself look like an idiot which unfortunately most motherfuckers in this dumb ass country are.The above facts and numbers can be verified by simply calling the stats office.

Good stuff there you mentioned Ali Baba.
If the Fijian Government are committed to delivering an economy that works for everyone then they really ought to look at how the spreading of wealth and prosperity across the country is done.A good place to start is certainly by looking at the national minimum wage and what is deemed the national living wage?

Some questions to ask is, can the Fijian government again increase the rates for the national minimum wage to $5?Can the Fijian government simplify the implementation of the rates to make it easier for businesses to comply, as well as reducing the administrative burden on businesses? Is the Fijian government ensuring that the lowest paid are fairly rewarded for their contribution to the economy?Does the Fijian government recognise and commend those employers who seek to pay low skilled workers above the minimum wage where they can afford to do so?

Now on the important issues of non compliance and enforcement,if the national minimum wage rates continue to increase, so too does the risk of non compliance.Is the Fijian government actively taking steps to mitigate non compliance?are they serious about increasing compliance with minimum wage law and are committed to cracking down on employers who break it?If parliament can pass a bill to name and shame companies who tax evade then why not take it further by also including businesses who fail to pay employees the minimum wage? is the Fijian government keen to send a forceful deterrent message to any employer who wilfully flouts the minimum wage rules?

Certainly right Ali Baba. It's obvious that the only 2 solutions to curb rising costs of living is to (1)ncrease the minunum wage for workers and(or) increase state/govt assistance. It's either.
Someone (economist) will have to work hard enough to determine and justify which is applicable and sustainable. Is the govt had enough in its coffers to accept and legislate the $5 increase across the board and at the same time improve instead of cutting its state funding assistance programs.
The time to do this is now not after the election.

How this goverments policy has affected the price of Ghee!. Ghee is used by every indian home. It is currently retailing at 16.95 for 750ml which is very expensive. Dairy prices have recently shot up all over the world and hence the the increase in Fiji. We import Ghee from NZ and all other importers of dairy products aside from SC foods pay 32% duty. This goverment devalued our dollar by 20%. If our dollar was not devalued and the 0 duty was applied to all importers. Ghee would cost about $10.00. Govt policies matter and when they make desicions that are negative people suffer.

Vote NFP.

Bum Leader
LeBron James, the NBA star, said he did not regret branding President Donald Trump a " bum " accusing the US leader of dividing the nation in his feud with the sports world.
James said " We know this is the greatest country in the world, this is the land of the free. But we still have problems just like everybody else. And when we have those problems, we have to figure out a way to come together and be as great as we can be as a people. Because the people run this country. Not one individual - and damn sure not him[ referring to Trump]" ( Yahoo! 7 News 26/09/17 ).
How true is that?
THE PEOPLE RUN THIS COUNTRY. NOT ONE INDIVIDUAL
That is true of American democracy. That is true of Fijian democracy. That is true of every democracy.
But often Megalomanic power holders forget that and degrade democracy into a one man show.
The people must not allow that to happen.
LeBron James is too right.

Just so you know that US is the greatest democracy on planet where free speech is observed and respected. If LeBron James was a North Korean or Fijian and responded the way he did to his political leader the outcome would be different, wouldn't it?
The only thing at play here is the enormous power that media has exerted upon society to shape and direct the world. The NFL 1/4 back Kapernick whose action during the singing of the national anthem was singled out and highlighted by media. The outcome of that publicity is felt nationwide. While sports is all about unity, togetherness and equality thanks to the media for its contribution in creating gaps among team mates and colleagues.

@ anon 11 PM . What about the gaps and the gapping divide created by the man who promised to make America great again? How great has he made America and American democracy so far in his presidency?
The point you make in your first sentence is covered by Rajend Naidu in his third last sentence.

Democracy is great with freedom of speech and everything that goes with it, but there is a time and place for everything.
Kapermick seem to have used this democracy and so has President Trump, which is his right also to do, even as the President of America.
Trump has been chosen by the MAJORITY of the people of America to make America great again and he is doing a good job compared to his rivals who cannot accept defeat and continue to try and bring down his administration. Trumps responsibilities to all American people and the whole world is much harder compared to many in America, including Kapernick I am sure.
In trying to rebuild a nation to become great again, it will be hard and painful and not everyone will be happy in the process. But the majority have spoken. Trump is the one who runs the country and I do not think he is creating any gap for any sinister purpose except to make America great again. Try making a great fried eggs without making excessive gaps between the egg shells.
Anon 11:00PM is right, try a different country for your actions and see the difference in the treatment you get!

When the President Gets Out Of Order
Michael Hayden, former director of CIA and NSA lambasted President Trump for demonising professional football players who chose to protest during the playing of the national anthem.
Hayden, a retired four-star general, who also led the NSA, argued in The Hill that the president had turned a protest " within the tolerances of normal American political discourse " into a painful national incident for short-term political gain.
Hayden said he had his quibbles with former San Francisco49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernich's protest against police brutality, his disdain for Trump's reaction to Kaepernich and subsequent demonstrators dwarfed those feelings.
" As a 39 year military veteran I think I know something about the flag, the anthem, patriotism and I think I know why we fight " he wrote. " it's not to allow the president to divide us by wrapping himself in the national banner"

Uncle guilty of rape

Repeka Nasiko
Tuesday, September 26, 2017

A YASAWA villager has been found guilty of raping his 16-year-old nephew in 2014.

The High Court in Lautoka heard the former resort worker raped the teenager while he was on his way back from the resort to drop off a relative's lunch.

The teenager relayed the incident to his aunt two days later.

He told his aunt that the accused showed him movies on his phone before taking off his pants and raping him.

According to the aunt, the victim was having difficulty sitting down and was in pain after the incident.

False Patriotism
What former CIA and NSA chief Michael Hayden says regarding US president Donald Trump [ " As a 39 year military veteran I think I know something about the flag, the anthem and patriotism and I think I know why we fight...It's not to allow the president to divide us by wrapping himself in the national banner"] reminds me of that famous saying " Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel " ( Samuel Johnson 1775 ).
" Yes, but of course he wasn't condemning patriotism. He was condemning scoundrels, and pointing out that the most dangerous scoundrels are those that pretend to be patriotic when in fact they're only being self- serving " ( Quora ).
That to my mind is a spot on description of Trump : a self- serving scoundrel masquerading as a patriot.
That species of scoundrels we find in our own midst . Scoundrels quick to condemn critics and dissidents as unpatriotic or even as traitors.
That's what makes them " the most dangerous scoundrels ".
We must guard against them to protect the open society and all that it stands for.
Sincerely,

Rajend Naidu,

If you call Trump a self serving scoundrel, what do you call Bainimarama? And what do you call the people who say the correct political statements but are ruthless killers, paedophiles, drug dealers, liars, thieves and self serving leaders?
I would rather deal with an honest person who does not hide behind political correctness and say things as they see them!

Jesus says, " I am the way the TRUTH and the life,". TRUMP speaks the TRUTH.

I'd like to thank the minister for employment, productivity and industrial relations for reminding employers to abide or face a penalty of $10,000 maximum or two years imprisonment if they do not pay their employees the minimum wage.For many years the practice of exploiting the labour market and the value of people's productivity in Fiji was a norm.Trade unions must also do their fair share in ensuring that workers are not to be exploited,they must do more to educate workers about their rights,health,safety and working conditions so that the industries they work in can improve.

According to the Fiji times the honourable minister for employment, productivity and industrail relations said political parties and trade unions had suggested for a higher increase but it was not possible at this time.Can he please give us reasons why it is not possible?Can he also tell us what steps has the Government taken to encourage employers to consider paying above the minimum wage levels set in legislation?

Government promised that no Fijian will be left behind therefore what is the Fijian government doing to ensure that the lowest paid are fairly rewarded for their contribution to the economy?Does the honourable minister for employment,productivity and industrial relations agree with me,that the right thing to do is to again increase the minimum wage so that the ordinary Fijian is able to receive not just a wage that enables him/her to live and make ends meet,but also receive a wage that is fair?

The Place of Protest in a Democracy.
We get a succinct idea of it from the Brennan Centre For Justice ( at New York University School of Law ) article ' It's Not About The Flag or the Military. It Never Has Been ' by Andrew Cohen, Sept 24, 2017.
" When athletes protest during the national anthem, they are acting on behalf of people who can't speak as loudly.
President Trump's weekend attack on athletes exercising their constitutional right to protest followed the longtime model used by police unions. Instead of acknowledging the legitimacy of the complaint that there is discrimination and misconduct in policing - Trump, like the unions, changed the subject, lashing out at the athletes as unpatriotic, even anti-American. The protests were mischaracterised as attacks on the flag, the anthem, the military, or the nation itself. As if it were ordained somewhere that one must stand, as opposed to kneel, for the anthem.
This is nonsense, of course. There is nothing more American than protesting injustice when it is manifest, nothing more patriotic than speaking for those who do not have a voice or whose voices are rarely heard. When people protest police misconduct, and racial disparity in our criminal justice systems, they are acting to improve the conditions of their fellow Americans, acting to frame necessary reform on people ( like Trump ).
This is " Anti-American" or unpatriotic only if you believe the protections of the First Amendment are overrated or unnecessary. And only if you believe it's unpatriotic to want to make America more just ..."
The same holds true for Fiji.
Sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

" When athletes protest during the national anthem, they are acting on behalf of people who can't speak as loudly.

You may as well brand all the Muslims who are killing innocent people in the name of their religion as acting on behalf of the people who cannot speak as loudly.
If you are an athlete please show your sportsmanship by not doing stupid protests during a game. The people who cannot speak loudly have already spoken in the ballot box and TRUMP has won. They can speak to him and he will listen because he is a Christian and demosnstrates his fairness to everyone. Just give him a chance. Its not even one year yet.
The athletes do not have the mandate of the people "who cannot speak loudly" to protest on their behalf. TRUMP has the mandate of the MAJORITY of the people of America to do things on their behalf. The sports people can stand in the next election, if they do not like what TRUMP is doing. That is the proper way of doing things.

Its easy to destroy things by simply being disruptive. It is much harder to build things up so that everyone has the opportunity to use the proper way to voice his/her grievance.
Use sports for sports and use the proper protest channels to protest.

There is a time and a place for everything. Do not mess things up please.

You say " Use sports for sports and use the proper channels to protest ". Did Reverent Martin Luther King,Jr do that? He was a Baptist minister. Did he stick to being only a church pastor? Did he stick to using the " proper channels to protest " in the Montgomery bus boycott and freedom March? How did he become the iconic leader of the American Civil Rights Movement? - chiku

Sports and Politics
See the documentary film The Team That Never Played which tells the story of What part football really played during Apartheid in South Africa through the lives of 3 different legendary soccer players - a black, an Indian and a white - and their struggle to end apartheid.
It exposed the absurdity inherent in apartheid's race politics through soccer which provided a platform for political protest against the abhorrent State system and contributed in a significant way towards its eventual dismantling.
Sports does not take place in a vacuum. It takes place in a society. Sports players like any one else have a right, a duty, to question the kind of society they have . To challenge the status quo and to call for change and reform.
There can be no denying sports players their right to protest against what they see as an injustice in society.

Hypocrisy In Our Politics.
The Canberra Times published the following two letters that capture this succinctly .
1. 'Unholy hypocrites ' ( 30/09 ) by Patrick O' Hara reads :
The reciting of the Lord's Prayer by our politicians is a total farce ( " Time to end parliamentary prayer", Sept 25,p.19 ).
Re : The Our Father " Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven ".
Either heaven is also corrupt and greedy, or Christian prayers haven't been working for the last two thousand years.
Re : " Give us this our daily bread ".
Our daily bread seems to be greed, lust, lies and materialism.
Foreign aid is being cut constantly by our current government.
Re : " Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us ".
I don't see too much forgiveness around. Refugees and our indigenous people aren't given too much. The unemployed are seen as the product of their own making. There is no forgiveness there.
Re : " And lead us not into temptation".
The western economy is based on temptation.
Re : " Deliver us from evil. Amen"
Sorry not working. Still our politicians go through this meaningless ritual every morning. The religious lobby really should have more respect for their " Lord's Prayer ".
Hypocrisy abounds.
I agree fully with Patrick O'Hara.
2. ' Heaven help us ' ( 1/10) by Don Burns reads :
Many thanks to Professor [George] Williams for describing so clearly several reasons why " parliamentary prayers should be consigned to history " ( Comment, Sept 24).
More than 100 years of prayer have been hopelessly ineffective. We witness disgraceful disrespect, shameful behaviour ( e.g. question time ), low- calibre debates and unworthy decisions.
Outcomes demonstrate parliamentary prayers are insincere. It is an expensive misuse of time and would not withstand cost-benefit analysis .
I agree full with Don Burns as well.
We witnessed a more distinctive version of this hypocrisy in politics when white politicians would recite Christian prayers in parliament and practice Apartheid rule simultaneously .
We witnessed the same in post coup Fiji.

America's Gun Insanity
Following a gun massacre in America I had written a letter to editor to ask, " When will America's gun insanity end ?" ( Fiji Times 25/11/14 ).
I ask again the same question following the latest gun massacre in Las Vegas ( the biggest in America's modern history with 58 killed and 515 injured).
White House says now is not the time to discuss gun control ( Aljazeera news 3/10 ).
So when is it the right time to talk gun control in America?
If past experiences are anything to go by there is never going to be a right time to talk gun control in America.
The power and influence of the gun business and reactionary politicians will make sure of that as they have successfully done up till now.
After the Las Vegas gun massacre it's reported gun sales again shot up !

Interesting how people will condemn Bainimaram and Khaiyum for alll the wrongs they have done and continue to do, but when someone like TRUMP tries to do the right thing, they condemn him too using eaxmples of sports people using sporst for protest and supporting their arguments with the eaxmples of Dr Martin Luther King Jnr and Rosa Parks the "quiet seamstress".

Now Rajend Naidu, stop your ranting like a madman. The gunman in Las Vegas, like the sportsman, is simply protesting about something and probably doing it for many quiet people who cannot speak for themselves.

The right way and the right time is immaterial!

What's Keeping The Gun Culture Going in America?
Fred Pilcher says "... The money factor [ that sustains the entrenched gun culture ] relates to the massive donations to politicians by the National Rifle Association.
The immediate response of politicians to the inevitable calls for gun control following this latest [ Las Vegas ] slaughter - that it's " too soon " to be talking about it - is a direct result of their need to appease their benefactor..." ( letter Canberra Times 6/10/17 ).
Another writer is more blunt . A,Whiddet says " As long as their spineless politicians remain in the thrall of the NRA, the killings will continue, the number of those slaughtered will mount, and apologists for unfettered gun ownership will trot out more weasel words to justify it ..." Letter, CT 6/10).
The reaction of President Trump and some Republican politicians to the latest calls for gun control in America bares out what these writers say.
The massive political donation of the gun lobby determines the political thinking of the people in power in the US.
No radical change will happen in the gun culture.

Changing the Gun Culture
Now belatedly even the hardline NRA has said the " bump-stock" device should be reviewed under federal laws ( abc news 7/10 ). But conceding the need for more regulation after the Las Vegas gun massacre does not amount to any paradigm shift. In fact it's like putting band aid where major surgery is required.
Dan Orr Henderson asks in his letter to the Las Vegas Review Journal ( 2/10/17 ): " Why do we allow members of the general public to own weapons of war? "
Why indeed?
Why allow one man ( the Las Vegas mass murderer ) to lawfully buy so many " military grade guns"?
No, a lot more serious rethinking of America's gun worshipping culture has to happen to bring about qualitative change.
If not it will mostly be business as usual before long and NRA will like that.

The parents of Yoshi Hattori the 16 year old Japanese exchange student shot dead through the chest in Baton Rouge on the night of 17 October 1993 as he mistakenly knocked on the wrong door to a Halloween Party expressed deep regret in the aftermath of the Las Vegas gun massacre that there was no change in the American gun culture ( NHK The World 18/10/17 ).

Rajend Naidu, has it occurred to you that gun control is not going to make much difference to murder and robberies and other atrocities that people do these days?
A gun without a person cannot kill anyone. Look at other nations. Australia has a relatively good gun control law but a Muslim took up a gun and held hostages in a cafe which ended up in death. There are other examples to quote and you know them since you are there. How do you explain those?
There is relatively good gun laws in England but someone used a car to mow down people on the Thames bridge.
They have good gun control in Fiji but people use cane knives to rob and kill. Do we put knife control as a means of protecting people?
People will only turn to other things such as home made bombs or poisonous gas, bow and arrows, etc.
It is not the weapon that should be addressed. It is the people. Until we overcome the powers that are trying to control the world for themselves, and turn to God, the world is never going to be a safe place anywhere - America, Russia, Australia, Syria or Fiji.

How blessed I feel now after suffering from the hands of my husband and his family. I was diagnosed with breast cancer for good 2 months and my husband and I have been married for 15 years . My husband lost the love and affection he had for me and decided to get another woman in his life. I was so devastated and restless for I was loosing my husband to another woman. I tried what I knew best to convince him not to take another woman that I will be fine but his family was so much persuading him to get a new wife. I nearly committed suicide for I felt so useless to everyone around me. At my place of work, my co-worker linked me up to a Doctor called CASERA that he can help me get my husband back and get me cured from the breast cancer for his works is effective and permanent. I contacted him and confided in him and he told me that my case is different that as far I have made in contact with him, that my life will be a new dawn filled with smiles, joy and happiness. My husband came back pleading with me that he was so sorry for it was never his intention to leave me for another woman but that of his family for he was the only son of the family. I accepted him back and I told him that I no longer have breast cancer that i have been cured from it and today, we are so happy and I will never forget Doctor CASERA for helping me. All this took place just within 48 hours after I contacted him and the result showed up as he said it. This is his contact for anyone out there that needs his help also. E-mail: relationshipsolutionhome@hotmail.com OR Call/text: +1 (518) 460-6400. He can also cure diseases like HIV, AIDS, Herpes Virus, Cancer, E.T.C.

Rotten Ruler
How bad must a bad ruler be for all his erstwhile backers to want to dump him like a plague, a social leper? Pretty rotten for sure. That is apparently the case with Zimbabwean ruler Robert Mugabe. Now after the army removed him in a coup and he is still resisting his formal official, constitutional resignation, the war veterans ( people who had fought alongside Mugabe for the end of colonial rule in Zimbabwe) want him gone. His own ruling party wants him gone as well and is taking steps to remove him. The Zimbabwean people have taken to the streets of the capital to applaud the army for removing the tyrannical ruler and celebrate their freedom from repressive rule.
A most fitting end to a ruler who forgot what true leadership is about.
It's not about terrorising your own citizens and using your position of power to get filthily rich on the nation's wealth.
Yes, we have seen that happen before : Another day and another dictator bites the dust.

Rogue Rule Fails in Attempt to Pull Wool Over The Eyes of The People.
Tens of thousands of Zimbabweans have spilled out on the streets of Harare to celebrate the end of Mugabe's rule with many carrying posters with messages.
One read " Leadership is not sexually transmitted " with a picture of Grace Mugabe with a slash across it a bit like a No Smoking sign.
Mugabe was going to transfer power to his sneaky wife Grace who is 40 years younger than him.
The army took pre-emptive action to prevent that dubious transfer of power.
One poster read " The Army is the Voice of the People ".
That sums up the Zimbabwean people's perception of the coup in Zimbabwe.

A Delusional Leader
Robert Mugabe refusing to stand down as Zimbabwean president ( abc news 20/11 ), shows the old megalomanic ruler has lost all touch with reality.
With his own ruling party ZANU - PF dismissing both him and his wife from the party leadership; the war veterans telling him " it's game's over ", the army wanting him gone and the people jubilant at the removal of the tyrant Mugabe has no real cards to play with.
I hope the 93 year old is gently escorted to a senior citizens home to live out his remaining days peaceful - something he did not give his own people in his 37 year brutal rule.

The Myth of British Colonial Rule Exposed.
Bill Mathews is spot on in his criticism of British foreign secretary Boris Johnson's boorish comment regarding the dawn of a new era in Zimbabwe after the fall of Mugabe ( ' A chance for the Jewel of Africa to sparkle again ' The Age 18/11/17 ).
Mathews letter ' Tarnished Jewel ' ( The Age 20/11 ) reads :
" British foreign secretary Boris Johnson's comment is most surprising... After more than a century of white rule, Zimbabwe gained independence in 1980 under majority black rule and Robert Mugabe became its president. Before independence, 110,000 Europeans ruled over 11 million blacks. The blacks had no equity in the nation's wealth; and had neither voting rights nor human rights. Six thousand whites owned 80percent of the arable land. Most of the blacks were herded into tribal areas with no hope of a better life. Is this the Jewel of Africa that sparkled according to Johnson?"
Johnson betrays the kind of British ethnocentrism that characterised British colonialism.
To acquire a more illuminating insight into the true nature of British colonial rule I recommend Johnson read Shashi Tharoor's The Sunday Times Bestseller book Inglorious Empire : What the British Did to India ( 2016 ).
What the British Did in India it also did in its other colonial possessions around the world.
" Inglorious Empire tells the real story of the British in India - from the arrival of the East India Company to the end of the Raj - and reveals how Britain's rise was built upon its plunder of India.
...British imperialism justified itself as enlightened despotism for the benefit of the governed, but Shashi Tharoor takes on and demolishes this position, demonstrating how every supposed imperial ' gift ' ... was designed in Britain's interest alone.
In this bold and incisive reassessment of colonialism, Tharoor exposes to devastating effect the inglorious reality of Britain's stained Indian legacy."
The Irish Times review of the book reads " Inglorious Empire is a timely reminder of the need to start teaching unromanticised colonial history in British schools. A welcome antidote to the nauseating righteousness and condescension pedalled by Niall Ferguson in his 2003 book Empire".
The days of colonialism when the colonialists account of history was presented as gospel is over. Now that distorted history is being challenged and corrected by people amply qualified to do so.
Johnson and like minded neo-colonialist should learn from their more authentic account of colonial rule.
Sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

Hello everyone out there, I am here to give my testimony about a doctor who helped me in my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX 2 VIRUS, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i opened up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mailed him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after 3 weeks of taking the medication, i started filling some changes in my body. I went to the hospital for medical check up and to my greatest surprise, my doctor confirmed me Herpes Simplex 2 Virus negative. so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him at moonlightherbalcure@gmail.com
