Belize Gestapo attacks Citizens

For years I’ve been warning you about the impending Police State, a few years ago I even stated we had arrived to that fork in the road. This is one example of it, but yet the leader of the GSU, the Belizeans version of the Gestapo will go on media talking shit. Welcome to the New World Belizeans. So last night I was physically abused by the GSU for a traffic accident that occurred on the corner of North Front street and Douglas Jones. I was heading home when their vehicle pulled up beside me and fired several shots without ever […]


21 killed by Mexico army had surrendered

Was reading this report and with the current situation in Belize and the hinting to similar by the PM I thought I’d share. Preventative Detention is the word today in Belize and if nothing starts to be done about the underlying issues that causes our Belizean youth to go rampant into gang life, crimes, drugs and violence; nothing will change and they will only escalate. Preventative Detention – the proposed amendment to the constitution was the cause of fiery debate, controversy and contention. So much so that Prime Minister Dean Barrow backed down from the law which would have made […]

The Origins and Implications of the Scottish Referendum 1

By George Friedman The idea of Scottish independence has moved from the implausible to the very possible. Whether or not it actually happens, the idea that the union of England and Scotland, which has existed for more than 300 years, could be dissolved has enormous implications in its own right, and significant implications for Europe and even for global stability. The United Kingdom was the center of gravity of the international system from the end of the Napoleonic Wars until World War II. It crafted an imperial structure that shaped not only the international system but also the internal political […]


Essentiality for Freedom of the Press

I found this article and though it was important to share. I share the same sentiment that our press MUST have the right and freedom to not only write freely about issues on all levels but also to be free from the fear of prosecution and victimization from those in office. This will be a long one but a must read, especially for those in the Media. Originally published in The Nassau Guardian on November 08, 2012 by Alfred Sears, an attorney, former member of Parliament and former attorney general of The Bahamas. In a democratic society there is no […]


Belize to support Uruguay for OAS Secretary General

Belize says it will support Uruguay for the position of secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS) and downplayed any suggestion that its non-support for the Guatemalan candidate was linked to the ongoing territorial dispute between the two countries. Prime Minister Dean Barrow speaking on television said Uruguay’s Luis Almagro “is ahead of the game” as regards the campaign for its candidate.

Corruption in Belize courts

Tonight, there is a great deal of suspicion surrounding the actions of a senior court staffer, which suggest multiple, condoned irregularities within the lower court system. Gabriel Casey is a bailiff working for the Magistracy department, and his job is to go around collecting payments from defendants who are brought to court for civil suits. It usually involves individuals who prove to be difficult in honouring commitments with different business places like loan institutions or persons who’ve been sued and lost their case, where the court has ordered them to pay fines or compensation. Acting as an official enforcement arm […]
