Speaker Bhofal Chambers (right) supports the bid to impeach Associate Justice Ja’neh (left)By Attorney Keith Neville Asumuyaya BestThe American Colonization Society, (ACS) had made it clear from the very beginning, in the mid-1800s: “no,” the nation’s luminaries had insisted in simple English. “We want no ‘superior’ court like what the British had, that even they had to keep adjusting, (fiddling with, fine-tuning) to keep power manageable, (simple, easy to handle). Liberia will do it the American way – by sticking with a ‘Supreme Court, as we do,’” they said.But even ‘Supreme Court’ carried some risk; the ACS member must have understood. However, confined to one separate and distinct branch — a good ways removed from the other two — promised some restraint, (control, limit) the erudite men must have reasoned amongst themselves.That’s what they did, and they were right: no longer lumbering, the U.S. marches on. Not so Liberia. The story turned out differently, when it came to restraint and self-control, as we will soon see!U.S. HYDRA FANGS BARED ON LIBERIAN SOILWe mentioned above that U.S. statesmen took pains to spare this nation some of the challenges the U.S. political system faced, as well as lessons that U.S. History outlined. That history was in-the-making, given that the U.S. was itself, relatively young. So it would be some time, before Liberia could learn and benefit from either the negatives or the positives of the American political system that, in time, would impact Liberia.With the U.S. Constitution limited to seven paragraphs at the start, American political history would lumber on as government powers and responsibilities overlapped, Stateside. Needless to say, conflicts and competitions routinely, (regularly) flared up between the three branches of government, as we discussed last week.After one hundred seventy years as an independent nation, Liberians, over the past few months, found itself finally caught up in a storm of local reactions to the effects from the conflicts and competitions that had grown out of overlapping powers and responsibilities between two of the three separate, but equal branches of government. Those were (the Judiciary and the Legislature) that Liberia had inherited from the U.S., along with the Executive. The conflict had “hit the proverbial ‘fan.’”THE CASE OF LIBERIAIt began with the 2017 presidential and legislative elections in Liberia. The Legislature had made the first move. Somehow, a dress-rehearsal idea worked it way into the mix. It would simulate, (reproduce, imitate) the real impeachment that would be undertaken later. The main subject targeted for the dress rehearsal was the then Speaker Alex Tyler.But this time around, this new set of guys from the lower House were primed for and had zeroed in on the real target; there would be no fooling around! They meant business. They felt they had some real complaints against Justice Jan’eh: The Constance property case would factor in critically! So would the Austin Clarke/EcoBank case, we were informed. The lower House guys made their move for impeachment.JUDICIAL HERETICSBut, the Supreme Court Justices had not been caught unawares by the move by the lower House people. With keen eyes, they had watched the dress rehearsal that had targeted the then Speaker Alex Tyler. They also knew that Hon. Bhopal Chambers had been gunning for Justice Ja’neh.Over the years, the Judicial Branch had seen things another way: “Beginning with a mind-game, they had concluded that there was a bit more to this infernal, (horrible, burning) ‘separate-but-equal’ equation, than ‘met-the-eye.’They speculated about—something, that they felt was still there. It was inside; inside there, somewhere, they might have obsessed! “The Constitution had assigned this Branch—the Judiciary—the task of interpreting the Law; if they didn’t figure it out themselves, then who was going to do it for them?” They decided to make their move as well.A few weeks later, a group of legislators tactically, were served something that forced them to do their own interpretation, and construction of a harmless-looking suggestion that came from the Supreme Court. As far as the Supreme court was concerned, the impeachment people could interpret it any jim way they wanted.The suggestion came in the form of a normal-day, “hold on a minute” writ, that asked the pro-impeachment Legislators to show up for a little tete-a-tete (private talk between two parties).Though written in a soft tone, what Chambers & Company heard, ordered them softly—but in no uncertain terms—to get off their butts and “report” to some imaginary court, popping up out of nowhere, (outside of the Judicial Branch of Government, as they knew it)! So, the group decided to defy an order that no agency under the sun possessed authority or power, enough to command (enforce, carry out) obedience to any such need or desire!NOW, THEN, WHY HASN’T THE “SUPERIOR” COURT HELD CHAMBERS & HIS REBELS IN CONTEMPT?That, of course, was what Chambers and his friends had been watching and waiting to see: whether the Superior Court had the chutzpah, (nerve, gall, or balls) to attempt to follow through and hold Gray, Chambers and Fallah in contempt, after calling the Supreme Court’s bluff, and telling the Bench and its Justices to walk chalk-line!PROHIBITION: an order from the high court, forbidding one of its lower courts from deciding a particular case! Invariably, it has been suggested and encouraged, that this rule remains a purely judicial prerogative, involving none besides the court, the requesting party, and individuals to whom the order, decree or writ, was directed.(TO BE CONTINUED; FRIDAY’S SNEAK-PEAK BELOW…)Meanwhile, the Chinese people say the money for the upcoming “fine, when decreed,” is on its way already! Then, the Representatives from the ‘Huss’ who only there to eeh, can divide it! Jewel say they inside: they got their part of ‘Huss’. The ‘Huss’ of Senate. Dah their time to eeh, too. THEY started this eeh gbinez! Wiah people know what she means. And they will eeh pro-pooh!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
“I don’t believe that you’re involved in a conspiracy to fire somebody because they wouldn’t prosecute a particular enemy of a politician or a friend of a politician,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. “But at the end of the day, you said something that struck me: that sometimes it just came down to these were not the right people at the right time. If I applied that standard to you, what would you say?” It was a devastating question – one reflecting pent-up Republican anger not only at the attorney general, but at President George W. Bush as well. Republicans have clashed openly with Gonzales on such matters as wiretapping without warrants and elements of the USA Patriot Act. Now, feeling saddled by the war in Iraq and still blaming Bush for their loss of control of Congress last year, they have little desire to defend the administration on a matter rooted in questions of competence and the politicization of law enforcement. With Democrats and a handful of Republicans already calling for Gonzales’ head, the White House – which has publicly stood by him – is waiting to see whether more Republicans will defect. On Thursday, one did: Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who told Gonzales pointedly that “the best way to put this behind us is your resignation.” The sense that Gonzales had failed to persuade even members of his own party that he deserved to keep his job extended beyond the hearing room. By noon, Byron York, a correspondent for the conservative National Review, had written in an analysis published online that it had been “a disastrous morning” for Gonzales. Republicans were wondering aloud how long the attorney general could last. “It sounds like he walked into a firing squad without a gun,” said Charlie Black, a strategist close to the White House, after discussing the testimony with several other Republicans. Of the Republican senators, Black said, “They just think this was amateur hour, and they should not be expected to defend it.” Revolt against Bush Republicans may also be revolting against what they view as Bush’s practice of installing loyalists at the Justice Department. The president and the attorney general are longtime friends, and the question of whether prosecutors were dismissed for not being “loyal Bushies,” in the words of D. Kyle Sampson, Gonzales’ former chief of staff, has loomed large over the inquiry. Some Republicans made their disdain for Gonzales clear by their questions. Just 15 minutes after the attorney general began testifying, Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., the senior Republican on the panel, remarked wryly that Gonzales had prepared extensively for the appearance. “I prepare for every hearing, senator,” Gonzales replied. Poor reviews for A.G. Specter seemed to view it as a smart-aleck retort, and the exchange that followed ended poorly for the attorney general. “Let’s move on,” Specter said sharply. “I don’t think you’re going to win a debate about your preparation, frankly.” Democrats seemed gleeful as they watched Republicans go after one of their own, even as their central assertion – that the White House had let politics interfere with law enforcement – was subsumed by questions about Gonzales’ job performance. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., who has been spearheading the inquiry, did not seem to mind. “I think anyone who’s watched this would say we could do better for attorney general,” Schumer said during a break. “He seems to be far less qualified than the U.S. attorneys that he’s fired.” The question now, of course, is what Bush will do. Congress has no power to remove the attorney general, and the president has repeatedly stood by his old friend. The White House did so again Thursday, though officials were clearly uneasy with the Republicans’ criticisms.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – It did not bode well for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales when, before he uttered his first word to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., looked at him as if he were headed to the gallows and offered this advice: “Be alert and direct and honest with this committee. Give it your best shot.” Things only went downhill from there for the attorney general, as the people he desperately needed to come to his rescue – fellow Republicans – proceeded one by one to throw him overboard. Not a single Republican, with the possible exception of Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah, came to Gonzales’ defense – not even his old Texas friend Sen. John Cornyn. And Gonzales did not help himself with his testimony that while he took full responsibility for removing federal prosecutors, he did not have a clear idea of why he had done so in some cases until he reviewed paperwork after the dismissals. It was no surprise that the Democrats on the panel skewered Gonzales. But it was also apparent that even Republicans had serious doubts about his fitness for the job.
Nathaniel Clyne Southampton manager Ronald Koeman accepts it will be difficult to convince Nathaniel Clyne to remain at St Mary’s this summer if the offer of Champions League football becomes available.The Saints are preparing themselves for a second successive summer exodus after the likes of Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers departed last summer for seemingly more glorified destinations.Southampton have defied the odds this season and are still challenging for Champions League qualification, but Koeman admits keeping a hold of one of their prize assets will be challenging.“We hope one day we will compare to the big ones, but that’s difficult. We know our level, we know our possibilities,” said the Dutchman.“I like to play Champions League as well but that’s the aspiration for every football player and it’s a normal aspiration. If you don’t mention hat, there’s something wrong.”Clyne has cemented his place in the Saints’ miserly backline which boasts the best defensive statistics in the Premier League, but Koeman has reiterated they have received no approaches for the right back despite media rumours.“We are still talking with the agent of Clyney, but it’s difficult. I read in the press there’s some interest,” added the 52-year-old.“Nobody knocked on the door with an offer for Clyne, but we know he has one season on his contract and we want Clyne to stay at the club.”Clyne is reportedly attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool and with his contract set to expire at the end of next season, Koeman is keen to tie down a new deal sooner rather than later.“We don’t wait until the end of the season because you know if there is a player who is left one season of his contract then you have to do something,” he said.“Of course we have to do everything to keep the player in the team, but I like to know it as soon as possible – not in the last week of the season, but earlier on.”The Saints’ boss also revealed that forward Jay Rodriguez, who has been sidelined for nearly a year after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage, is expected to take part in training next week and could even appear in a league game before the end of the season.“I hope that he can play a part in one of them maybe last one. Maybe it will be on one side a tough one [to return in] because it is Man City and he got this injury against them,” said Koeman.“That will be nice to end the season but the focus has to be next season and if he is part of one or two games this season it will be great for him, great for the team, great for the club.” 1
Donald Love 1 Manchester United youngster Donald Love has joined Wigan Athletic on loan.The defender, who was shortlisted for Reserves Player of the Year last season, has moved to the League One side on a two-month deal.The 20-year-old can operate at right-back or in the middle of the defence and has been registered in time to make his debut on Saturday against Walsall.“He’s a young player still learning but we have had him watched and we believe he has immense potential,” Wigan boss Gary Caldwell told the club website.“He’s quick, strong and can play in several different positions defensively. Let’s hope he can start realising some of that potential here.”
Everton manager Roberto Martinez blasted referee Mark Clattenburg for awarding Stoke a last minute penalty that earned the Potters a thrilling 4-3 win at Goodison Park.Stoke had twice squandered a lead, given to them on both occasions by Xherdan Shaqiri, as Romelu Lukaku levelled with a brace that took his Premier League tally to 15 for the season.Gerard Deulofeu looked to have won it for the Toffees only for Joselu and a last gasp Marko Arnautovic spotkick to miraculously send the visitors home with all three points.Martinez, however, felt particularly aggrieved about the decision that led to Arnautovic’s winner, with Clattenburg believing John Stones had felled the Austrian.“It’s a bad decision,” fumed the Spaniard.“It wasn’t a penalty in a million years because Stones touches the ball. He [Clattenburg] waits for the linesman who was over 40 metres away from the action.“From such an experienced referee it’s tough to take a decision like that that has cost us a point.”Everton now sit 11th in the table despite plundering 35 goals – 15 of those from Lukaku – and Martinez admits they need to address their leaky defence if they are to find some consistency.He added: “Sometimes we want to score and win games so much that we leave ourselves at little bit open. It’s something we need to rectify.“We should have used a bit more common sense and manager the game better. We have to learn because to lose a point like that is heartbreaking.”
California has sued under Proposition 65 to enforce warnings about mercury in canned tuna, lead in Mexican candy and other potential hazards. State officials are concerned the House bill would overturn their ability to caution consumers about such dangers. The food business, a major industry in California, wants consistent warnings across state lines to reduce the cost of making many different labels. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

All my colleagues disassociate with that remark.” Lockyer added that perhaps he should have called Rogers a “pea brain” instead. He called the bill “extremely dangerous,” adding that it would take from California women “the right they have to information that helps them protect their health and the health of their children because women in other states do not have that right.” “It makes it pretty clear that the attorney general has a very limited vocabulary,” said Rogers’ press secretary, Sylvia Warner. “He proved what we’ve been saying all along, that this has become more about politics than it is about policy.” The House is expected to vote today to approve the bill, which Lockyer and others contend specifically targets California’s voter-approved Proposition 65, the 1986 law requiring businesses to provide “clear and reasonable” warnings when they expose consumers to known reproductive toxins, such as mercury. WASHINGTON – California Attorney General Bill Lockyer, at a press conference on legislation to curtail food warning labels, used an expletive to refer to one of the bill’s sponsors. The remark was in reference to Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., whose bill would stop states from putting warning labels on food that are different from federal warnings. Lockyer read a quote from Rogers in which the congressman said a pregnant shopper in Michigan should see the same warning while buying peas as a pregnant shopper in California. “What a dumbs–,” Lockyer said.
AFTER dishing out $250,000 worth of fines in two high-profile corruption cases last week, members of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission complained that the campaign-finance system is irreparably damaged. It’s time to scrap the whole thing, they argued, and embrace public financing for political campaigns. They may be right. To be sure, public financing raises some troubling questions: Would it give too much clout to fringe parties and candidates, or, conversely, would it favor those in power? Is there any way to truly keep money out of politics without violating the First Amendment? And why should taxpayers finance candidates and campaigns they may abhor? These are all fair objections, and no one claims that “clean money” is the perfect system for funding campaigns. The question is, is it better than the system we have now? Members of the Ethics Commission sure think so, and it’s easy to see why. For years, they have been able to do nothing more than slap the wrists of unscrupulous politicians and special interests for corrupting campaigns. Not surprisingly, that’s done very little to make our government more honest. Even though public pressure periodically forces politicians to tighten up campaign-finance laws, ultimately, laws made by politicians end up favoring politicians. No “campaign-finance reform” measure to date has been worth the paper it was printed on. Full and immediate disclosure of all campaign fundraising would probably help, which is why politicians always find an excuse not to require it by law. All of which makes a strong case for clean money. Although few among us like the prospect of our tax dollars paying for political campaigns, the reality is they already do. Politicians trade taxpayer-financed favors to special interests in exchange for campaign cash. And because a few thousand in private campaign donations can end up costing the public millions, public financing of campaigns could possibly save taxpayers a fortune. Possibly. The devil and the angels are in the details. But one thing that’s clear is that the current system isn’t working for the benefit of L.A.’s residents. It’s time to consider all the alternatives.

Nearly one-in-five parents regret the name they’ve given their child, a new survey has revealed.Choosing a name for a newborn can be quite a tricky task when you know nothing about their personality, this decision will eventually define their identity for the rest of their lives.A new survey has revealed that as the weeks, months & years go by parents begin doubting their decisions. So it’s no surprise that one-in-five parents wished they opted for a different name for their child, according to a recent survey by Mumsnet.The next most common reasons for regretting a child’s name were “it just doesn’t feel right” (21 percent) and “I have never liked it – I was pressured into using it” (20 percent)Mumsnet founder Justine Roberts told the BBC: “Choosing your baby’s name is one of the first things new parents do, so in some ways baby name regret is great practice for parenting – you do a lot of hard work and research, try to please several people at once, and end up getting it wrong.“The consolation is that most children grow into their names, and those who don’t can always fall back on middle names, nicknames or, in extremis, deed polls.”Top 20 names that parents regret are:AmeliaAlexAnneAnthony CharlotteDanielDavid Advertisement Emily FrederickJack Advertisement JacobJamesJay Advertisement JayneJosephLily Advertisement LouiseMayOscar Advertisement RubyIt makes us wonder, do your parents regret calling you by your name?If you had to pick your own name, what would you pick to suit your personality?
