Special Report: The Dirty Secrets Of Late George Bush

Late George Bush As Vice-president

(The Vice President’s Illegal Operations)

By Howard Kohn  & Vicki Monks

During the most violent years of the war in Nicaragua, a retired CIA agent – a man of many talents and pseudonyms whose given name is Felix Rodriguez – was the logistics officer for airlifts of weapons and supplies from the Ilopango air base, in El Salvador, to the jungle hide-outs of the Nicaraguan rebels known as contras. On October 5th, 1986, one of Rodriguez’s cargo planes, a Southern Air Transport C-123K, loaded with 10,000 pounds of ammunition, failed to return from a scheduled drop in Nicaragua. Fearing the worst, Rodriguez made a series of phone calls to Washington that evening. What was unusual was that Rodriguez did not notify anyone at the Defense Department or the CIA but rather attempted to get word about the missing plane to Donald Gregg, the national-security adviser for Vice President George Bush.

Article: Theological Reflections On Gender Justice


By Pastor Otive Igbuzor, PhD

(Being presentation at the launch of Side By Side movement In Abuja from 27th to 28th November 2018)

Introduction:
It has been established that the development of any society requires the participation of both men and women. Unfortunately, women have been historically marginalized in all areas including spiritual, social, economic and political spheres.  Luckily, there is a growing recognition of the untapped capacity and talents of women and women’s leadership. From 1999-2009, the rate of women’s representation in national parliaments globally has grown from 13.1 percent at the end of 1999 to 18.6 percent at the end of 2009. Africa has particularly seen some dramatic increase in the number of women in parliament from 10.9 percent in 1999 to 17.6 percent in 2009.

News Release: Ibori Drags UK To EU Court Of Human Rights

Ibori

Chief James Onanefe Ibori has instructed his lawyers to drag the United Kingdom to the Court of Appeal at the European Court of Human Rights.
In a press statement signed by his Media Assistant, Tony Eluemunor, Ibori said: “At 11: AM today, judgment of the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, was handed down. Once again the British Courts have unjustifiably denied me justice.  The injustice contrived against me continued at the Court of Appeal. By this denial, I have been prevented from challenging my conviction even though the Crown Prosecution accepts the fact that there was a proven case of Police corruption.
