Submitted by Terence M. Blackett “Pigs can’t fly? Have you been to the airport lately?” ~ Gerald Celente In the aftermath of September 8, 2022, the world was gripped by the medieval spectacle of British, monarchical, imperial tradition at its most theatrical.

Barbados is currently experiencing another crime wave and to be expected it is being politicized which is part of the problem.

The Donald Trump Effect – Conservatism Seeking Future Victories

Submitted by Steven Kaszab The American Republican Party may very well welcome back President Trump as Leader.
