9 Presidential Aspirants ‘Say NO’ to Same Sex Marriage

first_imgAmong those who were participated in the second presidential debate were: (Clockwise from top left) Dr. J. Mills Jones, Simeon Freeman, MacDella Cooper, Jeremiah Whapoe Whapoe, MacDonald Wento and Sen. Oscar Cooper.The nine presidential candidates who participated in the second in a series of debates have unanimously agreed not to recognize same-sex marriage if elected President of Liberia. The debate was held last Saturday in Tubmanburg, Bomi County.The nine candidates each presented their plans for the economy, security and rule of law, peace and reconciliation, corruption, agriculture and youth empowerment. They also addressed how they would generate funding and implement their plans.Those who honored to the debate invitation were Rev. William Kpadeh (Independent), Dr. Joseph Mills Jones (Movement for Economic Empowerment), Simeon Freeman (Movement for Progress Change), MacDella Cooper (Liberia Restoration Party), MacDonald Wento (United People’s Party), Yardpajuwur N. Mator (Independent), Isa Gbombadee Wiles (Democratic Justice Party), Jeremiah Whapoe, (Vision for Liberia Transformation), and Sen. Oscar Cooper, (Independent).Compared to the previous debate, the presidential candidates relied on statistics to buttress their points. One thing that took the center stage was on the issue of same-sex marriage.All the candidates out rightly said NO to same sex marriage, homosexuality and gay rights and would not entertain Same Sex marriage under their administrations.They indicated that same sex marriage is against the will of God and, if given state power, they would oppose it because God never instructed man to marry his fellow man or a woman to marry her sister woman.Mr. Simeon Freeman spoke against dual currency and dual citizenship and vowed to create 55,000 jobs every year, cut down government spending by reducing the size of ministries, reduce the salary of senators, cut down the number of embassies to five, and privatize all government hospitals to ensure better healthcare services to Liberians.MacDella Cooper said her first priority would be to revamp the educational sector by providing free education for all Liberian children.She said currently the illiteracy rate is 63.5% for boys and 32.2% for girls and young women. The adult literacy rate is very low, namely 42.9%, while currently, only 41% of all children attend primary school.No country can really survive with these education statistics, she said.Furthermore, MacDella said her next focus will be on health because health is an issue since Ebola caused at least 11,000 victims.Dr. Jeremiah Whapoe said Liberians are not interested in listening to repeated promises in the midst of false concessions being signed by the government amid abject poverty.He said there is no nation that can boast of independence and cannot feed itself in the midst capital flight. He promised to prioritize agriculture in the country, which he said will provide job and also boost the economy.“Today we have a capital flight in Liberia of US$480 million, just for the importation of rice and that alone is an issue that goes into the pocket of the Liberia people,” he said.According to him, if such amount is circulated in Liberia, citizens will be able to make sound decisions that would better improve them.He said Liberia borderlines are not properly secured due to food insecurity and that the only way to alleviate such problem is through agriculture productivity.MacDonald Wento indicated that peace-building, national healing, and reconciliation will be UPP’s number-one program; and that maintenance of existing, and construction of new roads will be its second priority. In foreign policy, UPP Wento said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be re-organized, strategically positioned, and staffed with experienced diplomatic agents who are knowledgeable about how to tap into external opportunities to achieve the UPP domestic agenda.The UPP 2017 Platform includes a plan that calls for using technology as a means to discourage corruption, particularly in Government. UPP intends to make prosecution of corrupt public servants a predictable response in the country.Rev. William Kpadeh said Liberians have moved away from God and therefore the country needs spiritual healing. He outlined reconciliation, security for all Liberians, where every citizen will have a social security number, and build up science and technology to give students access to the global world.“Overall, this was significantly different in Liberian politics and a big day for Liberians to celebrate,” said Morris Johnson, a resident.“Everyone won and Liberia is the biggest winner. To see Liberian politicians on stage together talking respectfully about ideas and advancing solutions to addressing the country’s problems and needs is a major milestone,” he said. ‘Dr. Jones promised to give Liberia back to Liberians through economic empowerment as well as provide jobs to be able to boost the economy.He also said poverty is not Liberia’s destiny, and as a grassroots political party, MOVEE’s goal will focus on the economy and by doing that, “we will return the destiny of Liberia to the hands of Liberians and by doing that we will put Liberia back in the hands of Liberians.”“We talk about agriculture being a source of wealth and source of unemployment in the economy, we’ve agreed to go back to our policy papers, our report to the government; we have been saying that all along,” he said.The MOVEE standard also spoke on dual currency and noted that it is a political issue that cannot be done overnight.Margibi Senator Oscar Cooper noted that the country is endowed with numerous resources that would help empower and improve the living condition of its citizens, but the selfishness of past and present leaders to have all to themselves has been the “real problem.”“The leadership of our country, especially the current administration, has been wicked to the citizenry. This administration’s inability to fight graft is responsible for the woeful condition of the Liberian people,” he said.According to Sen. Cooper, the savings realized from these deductions will be appropriated in the national budget towards education, health, security, and affordable housing, among other social services. He wants salaries and benefits of high ranking executives not to exceed more than U$5,000 or its equivalent in Liberian dollars.The 11 absent candidates were George Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Vice President Joseph Boakai (Unity Party), Charles Brumskine (Liberty Party), Alexander Cummings (Alternative National Congress), Benoni Urey (All Liberian Party), Dr. H. Boima Fahnbulleh, (Liberian People’s Party), Kennedy Sandy, (Liberia Transformation Party), Prince Johnson, (Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction), Tuder Williams (New Liberia Party), Wendell McIntosh (Change Democratic Action) and George S. Dweh (Redemption Democracy Congress).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

I hope my players are hungry…for success! – Klopp critical of kick-off time

first_imgManager Jurgen Klopp has pledged to fight Liverpool’s corner in any future issues with kick-off times after admitting he could not believe Sunday’s match at Swansea starts at noon.The team returned home from Spain at 4am on Friday after the 1-0 Europa League semi-final defeat to Villarreal with their Premier League game in south Wales scheduled to kick off just 56 hours later.Klopp made jokes about the English liking their Sunday lunch but he is less than impressed with the amount of time he has to prepare and any such repetition is likely to see him step in during negotiations over when games are moved to.“Sunday at 12 o’clock, I can’t believe that,” said the German.“I think no one in this room thinks it is usual after the games we’ve had that we should start at 12.“We could have started at two or four, so four hours more and that sounds absolutely okay.“A few years ago with Dortmund we played at Athens and they cancelled their game so they could beat Dortmund in the Champions League.“I am not sure who made the decision about letting us play at 12 but we can’t change it.“I don’t want to make headlines. I don’t want to come from Germany and tell people how it works or how it is. Maybe for a few people it is funny but it is not really funny.“Maybe it was my fault, I have no idea if I could jump in or not but I could not imagine before that something like this could happen.“I am seven months here so if there is an opportunity for me to fight for something like this then you can be sure I will do it.“It is Sunday, all English people will have lunch and we play football.“At 12 o’clock I am usually hungry. If my players are hungry tomorrow too it is good for the game. Hungry for success.” 1 Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool travel to Swansea at the weekend last_img read more

Man lay flat in ditch to avoid Gardai during incident on Derry Road

first_imgA young man who lay flat down in a ditch when Gardai arrived on the scene of an incident has been fined a total of €300.On January 22nd last, Gardai found a  number of men walking along the main Letterkenny to Derry Road just after 7am. Among the men was Shane McGowan who was initially face-down in a ditch trying to avoid detection when Gardai arrived.When spoken to by Gardai, McGowan was unsteady on his feet, was highly intoxicated and was slurring his words.Gardai said McGowan began to abuse them, calling them various names and said he was only walking home.He was arrested and released on bail to appear at Letterkenny District Court yesterday but failed to appear.The court was told that McGowan had no previous convictions.Judge Paul Kelly fined McGowan €100 for being drunk and disorderly and a further €200 for using threatening and abusive language.He said as there was no attendance, he would forfeit the cash which was already lodged in court.Man lay flat in ditch to avoid Gardai during incident on Derry Road was last modified: January 31st, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

SEAMUS COLEMAN – “ONLY ONE BIG GAME FOR US THIS SUMMER AND IT’S AGAINST SCOTLAND”

first_imgSeamus Coleman has insisted that Ireland’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Scotland is the key clash for them despite the media circus surrounding the friendly game with England. It’s the first time England will play Ireland in Dublin since 1995, in a game that shamed football the match was abandoned when English hooligans began to riot inside Lansdowne Road.Games between Ireland and England in any sport are always special occasions, but the fact it’s the first time the two sides will meet in Ireland since that terrible night in 1995 only adds to the significance of it.While Coleman insists the teams primary focus is all three points against the Scots on Saturday week, he does concede that there should be a cracking atmosphere on Sunday for the game against England. Coleman told The Irish Daily Star, “There are two big games coming up for me.“We have got England up first in a friendly, but I suppose in our eyes there is only one big game this summer and that is Scotland.“There will be a great atmosphere for the England game, there always is.“England will bring a few over and our fans always support us well. “But we are using that as build-up to our main game against Scotland where we need the three points.”Irish fans are excited about this game and a generation of football fans in this country have been starved of clashes between the two countries over the last twenty years.Ireland played England at Wembley in 2013 and a header from Shane Long earned Ireland a draw.Coleman feels Ireland can overcome the Scots on home soil after their defeat to Gordon Strachan’s men at Celtic Park in November as there was very little between the two sides.“Unfortunately Scotland beat us there, but there wasn’t much in the game. “We have a lot more to give and hopefully we can take the points this time around.”SEAMUS COLEMAN – “ONLY ONE BIG GAME FOR US THIS SUMMER AND IT’S AGAINST SCOTLAND” was last modified: June 4th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:EnglandEuro 2016Irelandnewsseamus colemansoccerSportlast_img read more

Liverpool fans give Loris Karius standing ovation in pre-season friendly

Karius played the second-half of Tuesday night’s 3-1 victory over Torino in the Reds’ final pre-season fixture.It would have be understandable if supporters were still sour after his two costly mistakes in last season’s Champions League final against Real Madrid, but they instead gave him a rousing welcome.Karius’ error-strewn displays have seen him replaced by £67million signing Alisson as the Liverpool’s number one.But, when replacing the Brazilian at the break, supporters threw their support behind the young German in a display of real class. Summer signings Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri all made their Anfield debuts for Liverpool, with Swiss forward Shaqiri impressing with an assist for Daniel Sturridge to score the third goal after Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum has found the net for the hosts.Liverpool’s Premier League campaign begins at home against West Ham on Sunday.

ELECTION 2014: DONAL CULLEN TELLS CONSTITUENTS WHY THEY SHOULD VOTE FOR HIM

first_imgWith the local elections just days away, I am asking the people of the Milford/Letterkenny Electoral Area to VOTE DONAL CULLEN NO 1. WHY VOTE FOR ME?I have always been passionate about politics. This passion led me to study the subject at the University of Ulster at Magee Campus. I am the only candidate contesting this local election in the Milford/Letterkenny Electoral Area who has graduated with a B.A. Honours Degree in Irish History and Politics.My ability to face and conquer challenges has been proven as I am a recipient of the Presidents Gaise Award in both Sliver and Gold Challenges.I am one of the few candidates fluent in our native Irish language. This is my third time contesting the local election.This demonstrates that I am not lacking in political dedication or determination. If I am given the privilege of being elected as a councillor I will exercise this determination in Lifford to get things done.I don’t have a long list of sitting on numerous boards or committees to try and sway the voters but what I have is a passion and commitment to helping people to improve their situation where I can.On my election campaign canvass I have encountered time and time again the frustration, disillusionment, and anger that is out there among the public.On the door steps people have told me of their struggle to cope with the introduction of all these new unjust and unfair taxes.The cuts being implemented right across public services. These cuts are having a real impact on peoples lives. All we hear are figures, budgets and meeting targets on time. When are these politicians going to exit their cosy little bubble and live in the real world?Many people that I have spoken to have lost faith and confidence in the political system.Can one really blame them?It is successive Governments that has led to this attitude among voters with all their promises before every election but soon forgotten afterwards! It’s five years before they knock on doors again.If elected to Donegal County Council I will be honest, transparent, hard working, keep the public informed on important issues and make decisions for the benefit of the public not for the benefit of cosy political cartels.ELECTION 2014: DONAL CULLEN TELLS CONSTITUENTS WHY THEY SHOULD VOTE FOR HIM was last modified: May 22nd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Election 2014: Donal CullennewsPoliticslast_img read more

DONEGAL GROUP GET DOWN IN THE GARDEN WITH THE PRESIDENT!

first_imgShauna Coll, Leah Anderson, Gavin McElhinney, Marc Anderson, Sabina Higgins, Saoirse Doyle, President Higgins, Sinead Byrne, Mairead O’Donnell (HSE), Amanda Doyle (HSE)A group of six young people from Donegal who are clients of the HSE Physical and Sensory Disabilities Services attended a community garden party at Áras an Uachtaráin in mid July where they got to meet President Michael D Higgins and his wife Sabina.As it was a community garden party various community groups, health sector groups, religious groups as well as individual families from all over Ireland were invited to attend.The invitation came as a result of the group sending a DVD, called “Moving On” to the president in October 2011 along with a letter stating that they would love the opportunity to meet with him and visit Áras an Uachtaráin. The “Moving On” DVD was funded through Genio1 and the HSE West. It showcases a number of very significant short films, cartoons, and documentaries that were devised and produced by young people with physical disabilities from all over Donegal.Through the magic medium of film, these future Spielberg’s have been able to have their say about everything, from using their strengths, refusal to allow barriers to stand in their way, and dealing with every day challenges that face young people.The purpose of this DVD was to highlight the capabilities and strengths of project participants and how we in our communities can become more open and accepting of diversity and change.The group got an opportunity to take pictures with members of the Irish Defence Force as well as a UN armoured tank, the restored 1920 armoured Rolls Royce, Sliabh na mBán, which formed part of General Michael Collins convoy that was ambushed on 22nd August 1922 at Béal na mBláth, West Cork, and the President’s Rolls Royce which were all on display outside Áras an Uachtaráin. They then got to visit some of the formal rooms in the main house, including the presidential dining room, complete with table set out with all the presidential tableware.After meeting briefly with the President and his wife they then went to the Hyde Room for light refreshments, including Áras an Uachtaráin organic apple juice.Following this they retreated to the garden and listened to a range of entertainers performing in the marquee. The entertainers for the day were: Booka Brass Band, Owen Brady & the Blue Shakes, Lisa O’Neil, Maud in Cahoots, The Dublin City Rounders. The Master of Ceremonies on the day was John Creedon from RTE Radio.When all the entertainers had performed, there was an address by President Higgins.The group thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Dublin according to Saoirse Doyle: “It was an honour to be invited to meet the president at Áras an Uachtaráin, I really enjoyed the trip” Shauna Coll summed up the day perfectly “It was a once in a life time experience to meet the president. The hospitality, including the entertainment and food, was fantastic.The garden party was very well organised. It is a great memory to have.”With defence force: Sinead Byrne, Shauna Coll, Marc Anderson, Leah Anderson, Saoirse Doyle, Gavin McElhinneyDONEGAL GROUP GET DOWN IN THE GARDEN WITH THE PRESIDENT! was last modified: August 1st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalgarden partyHSEPRESIDENTlast_img read more
