DNA: Information Equals Power - Jun 30, 2016 - 7:29:57 PM

Unlike in days past, technology has become the foundation upon which our global society is built; and in this new age, knowledge and information have become the currency used to advance not only individuals, but entire nations. The correlation between information and power cannot be overstated. The world is filled with countless examples of the strides that have been made where information is made freely available to those seeking it.

Conversely, the world is also filled with examples of how failing to empower people through the access to information can have a negative impact. Sadly, the Bahamas continues to be counted among a small group of nations who continue to disadvantage its people by restricting access to information...

Youri Kemp: The PLPs Fiscal Consolidation is a Failure - Jun 30, 2016 - 12:04:49 PM


Recent reports from The Inter-American Development Bank, in their Caribbean Region Quarterly Bulletin, state clearly that the fiscal consolidation plan of the current administration is all but a failure. 


In a DNA release published on April 20th, 2016, with regard to the then released Standard and Poor’s analysis on the Bahamian economy, we outlined clearly how we felt about the government’s fiscal consolidation effort and we quote: “… the (DNA) questions about this fiscal consolidation and how can it be holding firm as suggested, when spending is still way out of control, the deficit, while touted to be reduced, may experience a sudden burst in borrowings by the end of the fiscal year and also when it is patently obvious that there is little to no growth to extract taxes from?”

DNA Young Dems Question Delayed COB Transition to University Status - Jun 29, 2016 - 11:35:50 PM

sm-Anycia_20Collie.jpg
In 2014, the PLP government moved a resolution to borrow 16.1 million dollars from the Caribbean Development Bank to cover land acquisition and external works known as Phase One of the College’s transition to university. The difference between a college and a university can be slightly confusing for some but it must be noted that the differences between these two institutions do not lie within its structural form but rather the amount of content, that being undergraduate and graduate programs along with research opportunities that are available to students. The external appearance of an institution does not determine whether or not it is a University even though the government would like us all to believe this. As it stands, currently the College of the Bahamas has more than thirty undergraduate programs and about ten Master programs that are available to qualified students...

Dr. Minnis on the Anniversary of the Baha Mar Bankruptcy - Jun 29, 2016 - 6:05:38 PM

“One year since Baha Mar went into bankruptcy this Government continues to offer up empty rhetoric and broken promises and engage in secret deals, yet nothing has gotten Baha Mar open. They promised us that Baha Mar was going to lift our tourism industry. From the outset they promised us 5,000 jobs yet that has not happened. Weekly, we find out through the newspapers about secret deals that the PLP Government has made with the Chinese that will rob Bahamian contractors of money they are due.”

“This entire project remains on hold and there is no opening in sight. On top of the 5,000 jobs, 2,000 Bahamians were laid off when construction stopped on the $3.5 Billion project..."

Minister Fitzgerald: Disappointed and disgusted by Minnis’ statement on education - Jun 29, 2016 - 2:59:06 PM

Nassau, Bahamas –  It is clear to me now as it was on Friday, June 17th when the Leader of the Opposition stood in the House of Assembly to make these same assertions that he is ignorant to the facts of the progress made in education. It is rather irresponsible of Dr. Minnis to create a public perception of education that is far from the truth. I am disappointed and disgusted by the article in today’s Tribune in which Dr. Minnis has made very careless and reckless statements regarding education.

We have worked extremely hard in education; including two members of his party, to allow Dr. Minnis to diminish what we have accomplished. He is misinformed and I suggest that before he makes any statement regarding education...

Dr. Minnis: PLP’s Education Failures - Jun 29, 2016 - 2:12:39 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the PLP’s education failures:

“The PLP continues totalk about doubling the investment in education, yet this government has not built one single high school in its two terms in office; not one high school in nine years. Where did the money go? Where did the one billion six hundred million dollars of borrowed money go? We know the Prime Minister was able to give himself a $2 million slush fund to use in this election year, yet we still do not have a much needed new high school...

Senator Alex Storr 2016-2017 Budget Debate Contribution - Jun 28, 2016 - 5:19:18 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Enclosed is Sen. Hon. Alex Storr 2016-2017 Budget Debate June 27th 2016:

I stand to voice my approval for what will be the last budget presented in this current term. Before I deal directly with the matter at hand, I would like to thank God for allowing me stand here once again in service to the Bahamian people. I would also like to thank Prime Minister Christie for his continued confidence in me and allowing me to be a part of his team. I would like to send condolences to the family of Stalwart Councillor Effie Cartwright from Deadman’s Cay Long Island who passed away last week. She was predeceased by her husband Carl who was also a Stalwart. I can remember visiting with them as they sat on their front porch in Deadman’s Cay and shared stories about my mother and growing up in Long Island...

Nassau, Bahamas - Commonwealth Of The Bahamas Contribution Budget Debate 2016/2017 by:Senator The Hon. J. Kwasi Thompson at Senate June 2016:

Total Failure, Fiasco, Disaster, Debacle, Catastrophe , Colossal disappointment, and ultimate betrayal.

Madam President it is with great sadness that we are left with this description of the last four years under this PLP government. When I think of the upcoming general election I am reminded of the words of a popular gospel song “I Believe” and at the end of that song is a melody which says So Long Bye Bye, So Long Bye Bye Goodbye to my pain and my sorrow so long bye bye...

Chairman Collie on the Secret BPL Business Plan - Jun 28, 2016 - 10:44:27 AM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on ‘Delusional’ PLP Chairman Robert’s comments on the secret BPL business plan:

“Another failure of the PLP Government – another excuse by ‘Delusional’ PLP Chairman Roberts. It has become very predictable that every time the PLP Government is facing a major crisis in their failure as a government they have their party’s ‘delusional’ chairman issue a statement with inside information to the press. How about instead of giving him the secret business plan to fix BPL, the PLP Government let all Bahamians know how they are going to fix the failing power company by laying the plan on the table in Parliament...

Nassau, The Bahamas - The following is Commonwealth Of The Bahamas    Contribution to the Budget Debate 2016/2017 by  Sen. The Hon. Carl Bethel, Member of The Senate delivered on June, 27, 2016:

Every budget debate is a contest of ideas. In the annual budget every government is mandated to give an account for its stewardship of the national economy, the quality of life, and the policy decisions they have made, which have either alleviated the challenges faced by ordinary people, or which have made the burden and the suffering of the people worse.

No one can seriously expect that the Opposition can overturn the government’s agenda in Parliament; certainly not in a Parliament which has so great an imbalance between government members and the opposition...

DNA Young Democrats on Decriminalization of Marijuana - Jun 27, 2016 - 2:03:15 PM

resized_Jayson-Braynen.jpg
We listened with interest last week to Senator Hon. Dr. Duane Sands voicing his support of the idea of decriminalizing marijuana. His stance has garnered the attention of the press and has been the catalyst behind a renewed marijuana debate online. We in the Young Democrats are proud to see more and more Bahamian politicians recognize the shifting sentiments of Bahamians, particularly those who are younger, towards the use of the substance, its economic potential and the impact which the move to decriminalize will have on young men in particular. Indeed, it is encouraging to see Senator Sands and other members of the PLP and FNM echo several of the policy positions that the DNA has put forward over the few years.

On this particular issue, we, the youth of this party, made a special push to include the decriminalization of marijuana in the DNA's 2017 election platform. In the first version of our #GenerationGreen document released last year...

Roberts: FNM House clearly divided against itself and cannot stand - Jun 27, 2016 - 10:50:42 AM

Nassau, Bahamas - The following is a press statement by Bradley B. Roberts National Chairman Progressive Liberal Party:

It is written that a house divided against itself cannot stand and given the unrelenting infighting within the FNM, Bahamians in increasing numbers are asking how this Organization can hope to lead a country when it is unable to organize and lead itself?

Take for instance the latest salvo – the scathing public attack East Grand Bahama MP Neko Grant launched into leader Dr. Hubert Minnis essentially accusing him of being disrespectful and failing to lead. Apparently Dr. Minnis left Parliament during the committal stage of the budget, blaming his departure on illness of some sort...

DNA Golden Isles & Carmichael Community Rally Speech: A New Road! - Jun 26, 2016 - 8:45:29 PM


sm-Braville-shot.jpg
After the hard fought battles for Majority Rule, Independence and the right for Bahamian women to vote, the citizens of our beautiful Bahamaland – our parents and grand-parents – stood poised ready to reap the benefits of their hard work. After years of being denied access, and opportunity, Bahamians were finally first in line. Our forefathers believed in the dream of what this country could be when Bahamians were allowed to control their own narrative. Sadly, after one Premier, three Prime Ministers and more than forty years of self governance, we the inheritors of that dream have little to show for the hard work of our country’s founding fathers and mothers.

In our current Bahamian democracy, Cabinet Ministers have become known for wheeling and dealing for their own gain. Back room deals and under the table payments are usually followed by announcements about a hand full of minor jobs designed to keep us all just content enough to control and maniupulate...

To our leader of the Democratic National Alliance, Mr. Branville McCartney, deputy leader, Mr. Chris Mortimer, party chair, Mr. Andrew Wilson, colleagues, my dynamic team, friends and the great people of Carmichael - good evening.

Our country has come to a crossroad. Are we going to continuously move onward, backward under the present and past Administration or are we going to move forward, upward, and most importantly, together with the DNA.

“Why is it at every turn we find the PLP Government making another excuse for the unfinished Bahamar Project? “According a Tribune Business article of June 24, 2016, the Chinese “assured” the Government one year ago that they would finance and complete the $3.5 billion Bah Mar project in return for the Government lending its assistance to remove the Chapter 11 bankruptcy from the American Jurisdiction...

Chairman Collie’ on the Rising Murder Rate - Jun 26, 2016 - 12:07:06 PM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the rising murder rate:

“With another murder on Saturday we have seen five murders in five days since Minister Nottage gave his speech declaring that crime is down. The PLP Government’s ‘solutions’ are not working as our sons and daughters are being killed on our streets daily. The ‘Minister of National Security’ who is protected by police and other security officers at all times, has no idea or does not care how unsafe the Bahamian people feel under the PLP Government and his failed leadership of the security forces in our country. Whether it is night or day – the Bahamian people do not feel safe inside or outside their homes...”

Dr. Minnis responds to Christie’s Comments on Unemployment - Jun 24, 2016 - 1:21:21 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on Prime Minister Christie’s comments from his Budget Communication Wednesday, June 2, 2016.”

“On Wednesday we once again saw the deafness of this PLP Government to the mood of the Bahamian people. Prime Minister Christie used his Budget Communication to defend his Government’s failed policies of the economy by saying that the already high unemployment rate has only gone up slightly under this Government. The people who are out of work, who have been struggling to get by and who have been looking for jobs for years, do not think the Prime Minister’s high unemployment rate is a good thing.”

Dr. Minnis responds to Minister Nottage’s comment on crime - Jun 24, 2016 - 12:35:00 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on Minister Nottage’s comments during his Budget Communication on Tuesday:

“The tragic irony is not lost on the Bahamian people that as Minister Nottage stood on the House Floor proclaiming the crime rate is down, two more murders took place – one of which happened only a kilometre away from where he stood. Bahamians in their homes, in their neighbourhoods and in their communities feel the growing grip of violent crime infecting their lives.”

McCartney: With Respect the PM must Resign - Jun 24, 2016 - 12:12:34 PM

A few hours ago, the United Kingdom voted by way of Referendum to withdraw from the European Union. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom was in favour of remaining with the European Union. Because of the position he took relative to the Referendum, in light of its results and the conventions of the Westminster System, the Prime Minister had no recourse but to immediately issue his resignation.

Under the Westminster System, if a government brings a Referendum to the people which is not successful (in favor of the government’s position), the Prime Minister must immediately step down...

Butler-Turner: Christie’s Dreams and Falsehoods on Baha Mar
 
 - Jun 23, 2016 - 12:40:20 PM

In a desperate effort to be re-elected, Prime Minister Perry Christie is once again attempting to sell dreams to the Bahamian people
 
Yesterday in Parliament, Mr. Christie sought to re-tell a selective history of his Government’s colossal mistake in pushing Baha Mar into liquidation which resulted in the project going into receivership and doing harm to the country’s ability for a strong negotiating position as a sovereign nation.



It is ironic and telling that even as the PLP was claiming that they were the great defenders of our national sovereignty, that their legal maneuvering did even greater harm to our national sovereignty.
