Saturday, April 18, 2020

Has Bainimarama lost control to Khaiyum? Who is in charge?

Two events on Thursday and Friday strongly point towards the fact that coup leader and Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama is more than likely to have become a stooge of his Attorney General, Minister for Economy, multiple important portfolios holder and control freak Aiyaz Sayed Khiayum.

In other words, the master has likely become the puppet because of his inability to do anything and be totally dependent on who he has many times called his right hand man in Khaiyum.

Bainimarama, who has more than often portrayed himself as a strongman, has become a poodle or a lapdog who only barks when Khaiyum wants him to do so.

Sources within Fiji First Cabinet have been telling us this. They say the real PM is Khaiyum because Bainimarama doesn't want to bite the hand that feeds him.

Late Friday afternoon, Bainimarama announced a Cabinet reshuffle. And Khaiyum had his way because in came his buddy Faiyaz Koya, the near bankrupt man who desperately needs money to save his properties from being seized by the HFC bank that loaned him a couple of million dollars when he was in Cabinet before the 2018 elections.

He took over tourism, trade and commerce that were part of Premila Kumar's portfolios. She has been left with local government, housing and community development, which most likely means development of squatters.

So Queen Premila, who portrayed herself as one of the most prominent and visible ministers has been dethroned and left with minion portfolios while Faiyaz Koya, a man close to Khaiyum and who replaced Ashneel Sudhakar as a MP, is elevated to a ministerial position over many who received a whole lot more votes than him, but are either assistants ministers or backbenchers.

This is the Open Merit Recruiting System touted by Khaiyum as rewarding the most meritorious of any post. For Bainimarama, announcing the appointment of Faiyaz Koya as a Minister is no big deal because Khaiyum wanted it - and Fiji First cabinet sources tell us Bainimiarama will always agree what Khaiyum does or tells him because all the PM cares about is bundles of notes for him and his family.

Still on reshuffle, Dr Mahendra Reddy's wings have been clipped with rural and maritime development being taken away from him, leaving him with agriculture, waterways and environment.

This, according to Fiji First insiders, means Reddy has lost control of advisory councillors and has his travel to outer islands for picture opportunities slashed, he is now confined to distributing seeds and making sure the drains are clean.

We suppose that is what happens to a person who licks his or her own spit. In Reddy's case he was charged by FICAC that is controlled by Khaiyum, had to spend many thousands of dollars in legal fees, got acquitted but damage was done, yet he decided to trust Bainimarama who is not in control of what's happening around him.

Fiji First Cabinet insiders say Reddy and Premila Kumar will now be even more alienated by Bainimarama.

An example of why Frank is beholden to Khaiyum


Fiji First Cabinet sources tell us that another classic example of Frank being beholden to Khaiyum is how the AG used the acting Chief Justice to basically quash a Nadi magistrate's decision to acquit those who were arrested and charged but the charges were defective.

They were acquitted because the PM's order was mentioned as being issued under the Public Health Act when clearly the PM doesn't have any powers to do so. His announcement during a press conference cannot be taken as an order as an order has to be legal and gazetted.

The Public Health Act has not been changed to give powers to the PM to make any orders.

But around midday Thursday, Khaiyum called a press conference to criticise the magistrate and the acquittal and said the police commissioner was talking to the DPP to appeal the decision within the required 28 days.

But a few hours later, he re-appeared and said the acting Chief Justice Kamal Kumar had also opposed the acquittal and ordered that the case be recalled. Kamal Kumar's statement spoke the same language that Khaiyum did in his midday press conference.

Both said the magistrate should have asked the police precaution to correct the charge but the prosecution never at any time sought permission of the court to make such amendments.

Fiji First Cabinet insiders tell us that Bainimarama was impressed by Khaiyum's show of decisive authority in getting the acting CJ to interfere on his behalf and correct his (PM's and police error). Even if it meant that government was interfering and influencing the judiciary that is supposed to be totally independent.

They say the bond between the two strengthened overnight and Bainimarama said YES to the reshuffle including appointing Faiyaz Koya as a Minister.

And we have established that while Khaiyum was talking to Bainimarama over the phone on Thursday night to confirm the plan, Faiyaz Koya was seated next to Khaiyum at the posh flats on Princess road that are owned by the top Fiji First fundraiser Sanjay Kaba. The flats are near Home of Compassion.

But certainly there is no compassion for those who fall prey to this government. It is because, as the Fiji First cabinet insiders say, Banimarama has been told in no uncertain terms by Khaiyum that his security and safety at the hands of voters is in his (Khaiyum's) hands.

They tell us that Bainimarama realises that Khaiyum controls all independent institutions such as the Elections Office, Judiciary and Human Rights Commission. So there is nothing to worry about because Khaiyum reminds him that if he goes down, Bainimarama will go down with him as well.

Bainimarama’s controls the Army and Police through Nautpoto and Qiliho.

So it is a case of both catching each other's backs.

But while Khaiyum and acting CJ Kamal Kumar attacked the magistrate and his ruling for picking out the mistake in the defective charge, they did not pay attention to what the police were doing under Bainimarama's man Qiliho who has been busy recording statements of those arrested.

We have a copy of a statement that looks more like a template out of North Korea, thanks to Qiliho, than a statement recorded by a well-trained police force in a democratic country.

Watch this space as we will reveal the template from North Korea and why Acting CJ Kamal Kumar will do everything that Khaiyum wants.

Khaiyum is calling the shots in Fiji. That is an open secret. Bainimarama is happy with his status as PM and with all the goodies that come his way curtesy of Khaiyum's agenda to keep the military top dogs politically onside by keeping Bainimarama happy being the Emperor with no clothes. That is the political reality in post coup Fiji. All clear thinking Fijians know that to be the case.

TRUMP DECLARES HIMSELF A DICTATOR.
Trump : " When somebody is the president of the United States, the authority is total. And that's the way its gotta be. It's total ".
His open embrace of authoritarianism- the idea that his power is absolute by decree - is deeply terrifying ( see details in Daily Kos article 15/4/20 ).
It is indeed terrifying. Is America heading towards a dictatorship? Remember Trump has always been behaving like one from the very beginning of his rise to power. Calling the media public enemy number one and denigrating the judiciary ...
I think we now beginning to see Trump openly show his true dictatorial colours.
The worst is still to come.

Trump is a dictator there. Khaiyum is a dictator here. Trump is a qio size dictator there. Khai yum is a qitawa variety dictator here. Both are megalomaniacs who hold press conferences to tell everybody how great they are. Only the simple minded and those who profit from their dictatorial rule believe these dictators' bullshit.

People of Fiji when this convid- 19 is over and it seems that the opposition and the public are too frightened to stand up, just leave peacefully.

The World will change after this pandemic crisis, many will loose their homes and their jobs so do what you think is right for yourself, that does not mean you take the laws in your hands it means that if you feel living in Fiji is not doing any good migrate to other countries but remember also that not everyone that migrated overseas made it to good life, the struggle continues now in every country no matter how small or big.
Governments with rich countries throwing money like water cannot but covid-19, that is an act from God and a curse to this world for the sins committed.

Pray to God and be saved he is the only one who can save us all from health and financial ruin.

HAVING IT BOTH WAYS
In his letter ' Qarase tributes ' in The Fiji Times 29 April Simon Hazelman talks about how many of us disregarded Qarase . He says Qarase was a gentleman, a statesman, humble and respectful and an accomplished civil servant.
But this same Simon Hazelman has been a staunch supporter and defender of the usurpers - the people who unceremoniously removed Qarase from power in the 2006 military coup and hounded him.
In some letters of mine I have even described him as an unofficial spokesman of the usurpers.
Now that Qarase has died Simon is trying to have it both ways.
It's hypocritical of him .

Free Speech in Australian Democracy.
In his letter ' Cause for concern' in the Canberra Times 29/4 Charles Pratt writes :
" We have a government that has a history of lying about sports rorts and dodgy water dealings. Authorities have used legislation meant to curb terrorism to raid journalists who embarrass the government [ by exposing the dubious dealings etc ].
One of these journalists had uncovered a plot to spy on Australians... " Pratt concludes by saying the people want to trust the government but that can only happen " if authorities had been more honest, transparent and accountable ".
I would bet my bottom dollar such a letter would never get published in the post coup Fiji democracy.
This is the beauty of Australian democracy despite its many flaws. The people feel free to criticise the government without fear.

REAL REASON FOR THE 2006 MILITARY COUP?
In his letter to The Fiji Times 29 April Mohammed Imraz Jannif wants to know - in light of the high praise for former PM Laisenia Qarase following his sudden death - " if there are any available updates or progress reports on the reason(s) for the 2006 events ".
The euphemistically referred " events of 2006 " is the Bainimarama military coup of 2006.
I take it from his letter that Mohammed seeks to be an informed citizen of Fiji. I take it he wants to know the real reason for the coup rather than the purported ones.
For his information such " updates " are available on Fiji blog sites. The latest one I have come across is in Truth for Fiji.
Interested people should check it out and make their own minds on what to believe to be the real reason for the unceremonious removal of Fiji's 6 th democratically elected PM Laisenia Qarase.

Of course Khaiyum has been calling the shots because Bainimagana is a high school dumbass...uhm dropout (sorry but the "French" words are bound to come out).

Doesn't take a genius to figure out who is technically running the show. It's always been the failed lawyer who likes to be a dictator wannabe so caught up in his own ego because he can't take constructive criticism like Frankie who recently attacked a parliament member just because he can't handle the truth.

Even the supporters are hopeless and too stupid to realize these under-the-table dealings. Ayarse can forget about his Singaporean wet dream because he just put Fiji on the same level as Venezuela and Cuba.

And this is why having two complete idiots ruling the country with Bainimagalevu being an ass kisser to AK-47 will continue having various repercussions.

Bainimarama Lwading the country back towards democracy.
I came across this piece on Fiji by Jonathan Pealman in The Saturday Paper 2 May. Thought I would share it here since not too many of our mob read that paper.
" FIJI : Since seizing power in Fiji in a military coup in 2006, Frank Bainimarama, a former military chief, has gradually been leading the country back towards democracy. But the imposition of a strict lockdown due to the CoVID-19 outbreak has raised concerns the country is regressing and that the pandemic is providing an excuse to violate human rights.
Jone Kalouniwai, a Fijian brigadier-general, came under criticism this week after arguing that health emergency justified a crackdown on free speech. " In times of such national emergency such as the global pandemic or war against COVID-19, our leaders have good reasons to stifle criticism of their policies by curtailing freedom of speech and freedom of the press" he wrote in the Fiji Sun.
Reporters Without Borders (RSF ) issued a statement condemning the comments, saying free speech was vital to combating the spread of the virus. " These comments recall the worst time of the FIndian military dictatorship from 2006 to 2014" said Daniel Bastard from RSF.
Be interesting to hear what people in post coup Fiji have to say about Bainimarama ( and Khaiyum ) leading the country back towards democracy.

Trump the Banana Republic Kind of Leader
Trump blamed his predecessor Obama for leaving his administration with faulty tests for coronavirus. But CNN's Jim Acosta pointed out to him that Obama had left office in 2017 and COVID-19 didn't exist until late last year.
But Trump was unfazed by the timeline.
That's not surprising for people familiar with David Robert Grimes book The Irrational Ape.
Trump is like your typical banana republic leader who blames all the ails of the country on past political leaders, " old politicians " etc to deflect attention from his own incompetence.

Being Remembered As A Nasty Bloke
Radio journalist or shock jock Alan Jones as decided to retire after 35 years and the way he is being remembered by many is more akin to a despised dictator. In The Age letters ( 14/5 ) column titled ' Alan Jones : A man who believed he was untouchable ' we get a sample of how he is remembered.
Jaroslaw Kotiw write " ... Jones got carried away by his own importance. He gloried in the perception of being an untouchable political heavyweight that could abuse whoever, whatever,at will... It must have come as a shock [ for him] to see that he was not indispensable "
Margot Pogos describes him as " a bully and a bigot who derives pleasure from his own self-appointed sense of power".
Belinda Burke notes his " vicious abuse directed towards women in general and to Julia Gillard, Sarah Hanson-Young and Jacinda Ardern in particular ".
There are many more descriptions of the man in the same vein.
Many have said his going from his job as a radio journalist is " good riddance ".
I wonder if what folks say about Jones bring to mind other people in positions of power and influence with the same inflated sense of self-importance and the belief that they are untouchable?

A Crooked Attorney General Not Serving the Public Interest.
We read in the Huff Post article ' 2,000 Former Justice Officials Demand William Barr Resign Over Michael Flynn Case ' ( 12/05/20 ) that these former Department of Justice officials also call on Congress in a letter to formally censure Attorney General Barr for manipulating the law to the president's " personal bidding rather than acting in the public interest ".
It's hard to believe a leading First World democracy like America has such a bent Attorney General . It's the kind of Attorney General one associates with a Third World banana republic. The kind who is more interested in feathering his own nest rather serving the public interest.
What a shame!

Coronavirus Pandemic and Religious Idiots.
We read in the Southeast Asian Times 18 May that a Baptist pastor and a preacher have been charged by Myanmar State authorities for holding sermons in banned townships ( to curb the spread of coronavirus) and telling worshippers that those who are devoted Christians would be protected from the virus by Jesus.
These Christian religious nuts are not alone. There are similar religious nuts in other religions.
They act the ostrich and ignore the science and sound expert medical advice.
They put lives in grave danger. They are a very real threat to community well-being.
I am not one for rounding up and locking up people with radical unorthodox views but these religious nuts need to be locked up for the public good.

The Rounding Up of Tikoduadua had all the hallmarks of the Police State.
Let me put it bluntly.
Police turning up just after midnight at NFP leader Pio Tikiduadua's home to take him in for interrogation and 36 hour detainment had nothing to do with maintaining public order in the country. This is borne out by the DPP decision not to lay any charges against him. Anyone who thinks it was is an intellectual imbecile.
This was a clear-cut case of police harassment and political persecution of an opposition political figure reminiscent of the police state. Who gave the order to round up Pio Tikoduadua?
The police need reminding that Fiji has now returned to democracy since the 2006 military coup and military dictatorship. Tikoduadua's court action against the police ( ' Tikoduadua to take action against police ' The Fiji Times 18/5 ) could help the police acquire a better understanding of its proper role in a democracy .

An All-Around Arsehole Leader
We read in the Daily Kos article ' Obama is Baiting Trump ( Dan K, 19/5/20 ) the following :
" ... Trump also wants desperately,pathologically to win re-election. This is only partly because there will be warrants waiting for him the day he finally leaves the Oval Office. Most of it is the fear his father drilled into him as a young boy: Never be a loser. loser is the worst thing you can be. A third factor may be that, as soon as he is out of power and people no longer fear him, they will all start laughing at him and telling the truth about just what an incompetent,bungling, moronic, all-around arsehole he really is..."
Never thought I'd live to see the day when a US president, the leader of the democratic world, is described thus.

This is not the first time CJ has overuled the decision of the high court judge. Where is the bill of rights to freedom there is none since the current government is using COVID 19 to bully its citizens and intimidate them.

Yet the expect to win the election again in 2022, which idiot would vote for them to keep them in power no one.. they rig they way to win and stay in power to bully everyone..bunch of bullies and evil empire.

POWER CORRUPTS.
Whenever I hear a political leader accused of or charged for corruption I am reminded of Lord Acton's dictum : Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Today we learn that former PNG PM Peter O'Neil has been arrested for corruption and abuse of office and misappropriation of public funds.
( Southeast Asian Times 25/5 ).
At any given time when you see the number of political leaders facing corruption charges you get a sense of the weight of the Acton dictum.
At this time apart from the former PNG PM, the former PM of Malaysia Najib Razak, the former president of South Africa Jacob Zuma and the current PM of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu are facing court cases for corruption.
This must alert us to the critical importance of institutions of state and society, including an independent media, in ensuring democratic accountability. To hold power to account.

Police Brutality.
The cold blooded murder of the unarmed black man George Floyd by the police is the face of institutionalised racism and fascism in America ( Details can be obtained from the many write ups ). That Gestapo-style policing of black people in America makes one wonder about American democracy.
It's a disgrace. No wonder the American people have got fed up and have taken to the streets to protest in this unprecedented manner right across the country.
George Floyd's brutal killing is the powder keg for the long simmering discontent with the " system " and the status quo.
They are demanding change NOW for the way blacks are treated in America.

Trump : More Force Required
According to Donald Trump - the intellectually changed and morally bankrupt President of the United States of America - more forced was required to bring the public protest raging across America under control. It apparently has not registered in his feeble head that the use of excessive force on the coloured citizens is what has got America into its current predicament.
And, this president is largely responsible for escalating the racism since taking office. The protest across the country is a collective reaction to the institutionalised racism and police brutality in America. The cold blooded police killing of the unarmed black man George Floyd was the last straw that broke the camel's back. The anger and frustration could no longer be suppressed. Hence the civil upheaval we are now witnessing.
America had that coming. Trump has facilitated it.

I would like to request Rajend Naidu to stop spreading lies. Please get yourself fully briefed on the situation in America before making such claims. If you read wider and deeper enough without coloured spectacles, you will be able to discern the whole truth, and when you do, you will perhaps revise your distorted perceptions about the US President.

A simple question to you: Why did Trump risk and sacrifice his successful business, wonderful family and successful life to enter politics in the first place? Unlike Hillary Clinton and Hussein Obama, Trump was significantly wealthy. Then when he became President, why did he donate his salary to charitable causes?

My humble advice to you is stick to what you know best and stop making hasty and blatantly false comments about people and topics you have little or distorted knowledge about.

BTW, I have appreciated much of your comments over the years. But your comments about President Trump have been totally negative. In spite of what Trump had been through to restore the people's control over their Government, many people do not really understand the evil and unprecedented vicious attacks against the President and his agenda to make America great again. Please wait until he completes his term, then you will see what I mean.

Thank you

Antifa in Name Only: Same MB Network, New DNC Branding
After 4 years of rolling coup and 11 weeks of partial lockdown here, in New York, one can get fatigued by the unrelenting irregular warfare and all of the Alice in Wonderland torture techniques, forcing us watch while the economy is intentionally collapsed and cohesion is purposefully destroyed.
The best way to grapple with this is to fully understand that this is war. When we think of war, many of us think of Late Modern warfare, like in World War II or Vietnam but Post-Modern Hybrid Warfare is very different and the better we understand it, the better prepared we are to cope.
The rolling coup against Trump is a "psychological civil war" and "asymmetrical warfare" but a more formal term for what's been going on is Fourth-Generation Warfare (4GW), which involves a blurring of the lines between war and politics, combatants and civilians. It uses propaganda and information warfare to accomplish strategic, operational, and tactical objectives, without measurable damage that the target can identify. In some cases, the target may not even know it has been attacked, thus already losing that battle.
Fourth-Generation Warfare involves the following elements:
• Decentralized, lack of hierarchy, with a non-national or transnational base
• A direct attack on the enemy's culture, including genocidal acts against civilians
• Highly sophisticated psychological warfare and propaganda, especially through media manipulation, internet trolls, bots and lawfare
• All available pressures are used – political, economic, social and military
• Occurs in low-intensity conflict over a long term, involving actors from all networks
• Use of insurgency tactics, such as subversion, terrorism and guerrilla tactics

Sound familiar? Antifa and their supporters in the DNC, in Hollywood and in the Mainstream Media embody the Post-Modern warfare that's been developing in recent decades via al-Qaeda and ISIS.
It is transnational, it attacks the culture, it features psychological warfare, propaganda, lawfare, etc., etc. And that yes, these riots are the latest iteration of the rolling coup.
ANTIFA IS THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD NETWORK, REBRANDED
George Webb offers the bombshell that Antifa is actually just the Muslim Brotherhood re-branded by the DNC as Antifa; their communications network points to this.
He asks us how did it escape the NSA that Antifa is transnational? Why hadn't Trump been briefed about it?
He says, "If you have a network that's already set up for nefarious purposes; if you already have a channel that's working great ... that's dark to the NSA; NSA can't see your communications, there's no reason to go to open communications and set up a new network.
"When you go to open communications to set up a new network, you immediately create flashing red lights for the NSA to stop you. It's much easier to co-opt an existing network. It's much easier to take an existing organization and just change the name, which is what happens, over and over again in these covert operations.
"So, that's why we focus so much on existing organizations that's why we went to the towns where the members of Congress who carried...those encrypted communications devices. We went to their districts and predicted that these two districts would be the hotspots, if there was gonna be a take down on Trump.

"We outlined this whole Blackstone Express, how Antifa was moving their weapons - how the Muslim Brotherhood was moving our weapons again, from the central location at the Islamic Society of North America [in Indianapolis]. This information I've been giving out is four years old. We were right four years ago."

Creeping Totalitarianism .
" When the state turns on its own citizens using police or military force, we are on the way to totalitarianism ( " Battle against power and glory ", June 5 ).It seems most US citizens are sleepwalking to this end. It also is emerging here, as is evident in police treatment of Indigenous citizens. Too many people accept this state power, thinking as law-abiding citizens they will never be subject to these actions, until they are. Then it may be too late. History shows it can be an insidious and incremental change in governing attitude where police and military bodies cease to be our servants and become an arm of state control" ( Richard Hambly smh letter 6/6/20 ).
How true is that!
We should be very well acquainted with this trend given our military coup history.

"The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may distort it. Ignorance may deride it, but there it stands".

Life is so fragile, fickle, and absolutely precious, all at the same time. There are many ways of looking at life. It really demends on who is looking and where he or she looks from. That is called perspective or stand-point.

Shakespeare looked at life as a walking shadow, and a poor player that struts and frets its hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. He said, life is like a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, that signifies nothing. In a moment we are born, and in a few moments, we die. Others perceive life as a flower. The seed germinates, sprouts then bursts out is transcendent beauty, mystery and essence for only a brief moment. Then it fades back into nothingness.

But no matter our differing standpoints and perspectives, we can all agree on certain constants and sobering realities. One is that moments are the currency of life. Without moments, there is no life. So it follows that the manner in which we live our moments will determine the quality of our lives and the impact we have on the people and the around us.

Yes we can be happy and successful in life, in spite of the evil, malice, ignorance, conflicts, injustice and chaos. There things we will never change, but there are others we can. But positive change always is possible when we are willing to seek, pursue, protect and defend eternal principles of truth, love, justice, peace and righteousness and godliness. Without these, our societal structural foundations will never last.

In a few weeks and months from now, much of the world will be shocked to learn the TRUTH about what has been happening in America and around the world. Many evil deeds will be exposed and people and organisations shall be held accountable. President Trump will, reveal, beyond any reasonable doubt, prove millions of people wrong and vindicate his courageous and steadfast fight for the truth and justice for the American people.

The wonderful truth for us here in our tiny nation is that what will happen in America will also be true in Fiji. Voreqe and Aiyaz evil reign of deception, lies, tyranny and destruction of our society will finally come to an end. They and their puppets and energisers will be held accountable.

Cheer up Fiji. Love God and love one another. Seek truth, defend justice and fear God. Remember, life is just a tiny moment in God's eternity. God is still in control, but we must each decide which side we are on. I pray that we will stand for the light. Darkness only exists where there is an absence of light. So let your light shine. Our quality of life and our world depends on it. God bless our Fiji.

Derisive Comments From Disconnected Politician
" Mathias Cormann, a white politician born in Belgium, calls Black Lives Matter protesters " incredibly indulgent" for openly protesting about the ongoing plight of Australia's Indigenous people. No empathy, no understanding, only derision. Clearly the political elite are part of the problem " ( Dennis Richard, The Age 10/6/20 ).
Yes the political elite are indeed part of the problem of why institutionalised racism remains entrenched in Australian society with Aboriginal deaths in police custody a clear manifestation of that racism.
It is good though to see thousands of ordinary non-Aboriginal Australian citizens join the Black Lives Matter protest demanding justice and fair treatment for aboriginal people and people of colour .
There is hope for a better world when you have that kind of people to people solidarity .

Editor,
Trump's New Low
Trump tweets that the long time 75 year old peace activist Martin Gugino who is still in hospital after being pushed to the pavement by police in Buffalo could be ' antifa provocateur ' ( Trump makes baseless claim that man,75, shoved by police : ' Could be a set-up? ' the guardian 9/6 ). It has brought sharp criticism from many including some from Republicans. The injured old man's lawyer says he is at a loss to understand why the president of the USA would say that.
There can be one plausible reason : Trump is not well in the head.

Keep it up Tomasi. I believe in Trump and he will win the election again this year and all these main stream media, such as CNN, who only publish FAKE NEWS will be shocked again.
TRUMP was chosen by God to take down the evil empire that has been destroying American lives all these years from President Jimmy Carter up to Obama. Hillary was suppose to replace Obama as President, but the people who control the system got a shock when TRUMP won. Why do you think their Headlines were, "THE WHOLE WORLD IS SHOCKED" when TRUMP won. They were so sure that Hillary would win, even HC was already saying everything is in place for her to win.
God has had enough.
God has had enough of abortions and chilfren sacrifices, paedophilia. etc. Even Fiji has been used by these evil people who kidnap and sell young Fijian children - human trafficking etc. Watch Trump when was drinking Fiji Water???? That was a message for the world to see. He has destroyed the people who were doing that in Fiji, the owners of Fiji Water/

Search listen to Pastor Lindsey Williams stories on You Tube talking about the Elite Group he stayed with at the Oil Fields in Alaska and how they got a shock when Trump won the Election and they have to put back their plans for the world for another twenty five years. Their conclusion on TRUMPS win? Only GOD could have done that".

Human traffiking and drugs are basically stopped by the corona virus pandemic. Ever wondered why??? Because God is behind it.

World travel has been stopped and so all those drug and human and other traffiking have stopped.
Keep it up Tomasi. God Bless you as He is with you.
Do not waste your breath on Rajen and his supporters. Let them Get a shock like the Elite when the time comes.

A group of President Trump's conservative critics say he's just earned a terrible new title after he again defended the Confederacy and vowed to continue honour its leaders and generals even though top military men have said it was time to change ( Republican Group Says Trump Just Became the ' Confederacy's Second President', HuffPost 11/6 ).

Editor,
TRUMP'S LYING RECORD HAS GONE UP BIG TIME.
" Foreign Minister Marise Payne may want to " hit out at Chinese and Russian disinformation", which is warranted, but I wonder why she doesn't include the US in the disinformation mix ? Has she not heard that COVID-19 is a " Democratic hoax "? Or that many have used hydroxychloroquine to help fight off the virus? Or that taking disinfectant might stop the virus?
As of May, President Trump had allegedly made more than 18,000 false or misleading claims and not through bots or troll factories or dark misinformation campaigns, but right here on national TV and Twitter. Let's call out disinformation but let's not fear calling out all of it as opposed to dog whistling around a few soft targets as Payne has done"
The last I had read was 12,000. So Trump's lying has gone up " bigly "!

Exercise of Power
Former CIA director and Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in his PBS NewsHour interview ( 18/6 ) on his book Exercise of Power that Trump was a " divider ".
A national leader is meant to unite the people not divide them. No wonder Bolton said Trump was no fit for the office, that he lacked the " competence " to be president.
Now these are not Lefties, are they?

Editor,
Trying to suppress the truth totalitarian state style.
Trump tried a preemptive strike to block publication of Bolton's book in the hope of preventing the truth about him coming out. ' Bolton can publish book on Trump despite effort to block it : judge ' ( The Age 21/6 ). But that devious attempt failed. For all its faults and pathetic leadership under a hopeless president like Trump let us not forget America is still a solid democracy with free speech as its core pillar . It is not communist China where not only writers but even book sellers can be banned .
And the judge's decision to allow publication despite President Trump's attempt to block it, tells you a great deal about what a truly independent judiciary looks like.

A Trump supporter at the Trump election rally in Tulsa said he is " not worties at all about coronavirus " and he was not going to be wearing a face mask. Several others who were interviewed said the same thing ( abc world news tonight 21/6 ).
Well that gives a good insight into the mentally of the mob converging at the Trump rally.

Fiji a one man show
We read in the Fiji Times 26/6 that civil society organisation heads say " one man cannot have all the answers " to Fiji's woes and hence a " think tank " should be put together to address issues confronting the country.
Fiji has been a one man show since the military coup of 2006 with everyone else playing second fiddle at best. That man has projected himself as the man with all the answers, with the panacea to all that ails the country, and everyone has taken that lying down. Some have even sought to ingratiate themselves to this one man.
I think Fiji has to live with the reality of their one man show with occasional noise from the sidelines about how pathetic the one show performance really is.

I will sack Fiji's President and the current illegal government when I get back to Fiji soon.
I have been staying in Australia due to Covid 19 and my tourist visa has been extended.

We will install a full legal government like before the coups.

1987, 2000 and 2006 were the legal governments of Fiji until this idiot showed up and took control.
Coup makers Bai, Rabuka and George Speight will be terminated from life

Editor,
Describing Leaders.
I didn't know until I read in The Fiji Times the other day that lawyer Aman Singh is being sued for defamation for calling the Attorney General " Korrupt Khaiyum " and the Prime Minister " Violent Voreqe " in his Facebook posts. I am not on Facebook. I suspect a lot more people have come to know as a result of the court action and the reporting on it that these two leaders have been called that.
But leaders do get called names.
We learn from the Daily Kos 23/6/20 that US President Donald Trump has been called " a garbage human being ". Hunter wrote " Today we learn that Donald Trump, who is a garbage human being in literally every way it is possible for someone to be a garbage human being in, is mad at his niece for writing a mean book about him because, he says, she signed a nondisclosure agreement with him and is " not allowed " to do that " .
See Mary L Trump (2020 ) Too Much and Never Enough : How My Family Created The World's Most Dangerous Man ).
In an earlier Daily Kos article Trump was called " an all round arsehole ".
I wonder if anyone was sued for defamation for calling Trump by those names?

A superior court in. the US has given Mary L Trump the green light to go ahead with the publication of her book ( PBS NewsHour 3/7 ) It should make very interesting reading seeing as the author is Trump's own niece. She'd know Trump from close up. That's why Trump did not want the book published. Too bad for Trump the book is coming out next month.

Not Corresponding to Reality
We read in a Fiji Government Ministry of Information provided bulletin that Skockholm International Peace Research Institute ( SIPRI ) has named Attorney General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum as a panelist on its Environment of Peace ( EP 2022 ) global initiative. We read the chair of the initiative waxing lyrically about Khaiyum because of " his knowledge and experience of climate change and environmental challenges" and that it is for that reason she had " personally approached " Khaiyum to be a panelist ( see details in Fiji to help cultivate ' Environment of Peace ' through new SIPRI initiative in The Fiji Times 3 July ).
Two days later we read in Tukai Lagonilakeba's letter to editor that massive mangrove forest destruction has taken place in Denaru south multi-million dollar development undertaking which has completely ruined the biodiversity in that specific area which has existed for hundreds of years.
This man- made disaster happened under the watch of Khaiyum's government.
See also Professor Wadan Narsey's earlier reports on mangrove forest destruction under the watch of the Khaiyum Bainimarama regime.
There is an apparent mismatch between the SIPRI view of Khaiyum and the ground reality in Fiji .

No one above the law, including the President.
I wonder what Tomasi and company make of the Supreme Court decision taken unanimously by all the judges, including the two appointed by President Trump, that no one was above the law, including President Trump.
Trump has been peddling the claim that he had " absolute immunity " whilst in office. He thought he was so high and mighty that the law did not apply to him. The judges' decision ( PBS NewsHour 9/7 ) brought him back to reality.
Will Trump and his fans now claim the judges are " lefties"?

All Governments Lie
Melbourne man Colin Deoki draws our attention to the documentary ' All governments lie ' ( The Fiji Times 9/7 ). That's so true. But most governments lie from time to time. That is unlike the Trump government which lies full time!

Trump Supporters Now Abandoning Him Bigly
The one thing Trump can't be accused of is failing to deliver a regular supply of lies. The latest include 1. Claiming Native Americans are unhappy/angry that the Washington Redskins have retired that name ( The Native Americans have been fighting for decades for the removal of the racial slur ). 2. That the Trump Administration has a good handle on the coronavirus pandemic ( Expert medical authorities say its spiralling out of control ) 3. More whites are victims of police brutality and shooting ( Blacks and coloured people are disproportionately impacted by police brutality and shooting ).
It's stuff like these that have finally forced former Trump voters to change their minds about him. We read in The Washington Post article ' It's OK to change your mind' : Trump voters join ' Never Trump' ranks ( 16/7/2020 ) that one former Trump voter said " If Joe Biden drops out and the DNC runs a tomato can, I will vote for the tomato can because I believe the tomato can will do less harm than our current President ".
Timoci, Timoci, Timoci what have you to say about this? Have the former Trump supporters become " lefties"?
Or, is it that they have come to their senses realising what an arsehole Trump is?
