John 16 hours, 24 minutes ago on Island Luck sees 90% money transfer drop

I guess you didn’t get it! The same countries accusing The Bahamas of money laundering amongst other things are the same ones who now control the offshore banking market. The USA alone has23% of that market and most of the rest is shared by the G7 go figure

John 1 day, 3 hours ago on Lawful killings: Officers justified in shooting two men dead

This who our police taking directions from and who intelligence they relying on; "The American people may not know it but they have some severe problems with one of their official governmental entities, the Central Intelligence Agency. Because of the almost total secrecy surrounding its activities and the lack of cost accounting on how it spends the money covertly appropriated for it within the defense budget, it is impossible for citizens to know what the CIA's approximately 17,000 employees do with, or for, their share of the yearly $44 billion-$48 billion or more spent on "intelligence." This inability to account for anything at the CIA is, however, only one problem with the Agency and hardly the most serious one either.

There are currently at least two criminal trials underway in Italy and Germany against several dozen CIA officials for felonies committed in those countries, including kidnapping people with a legal right to be in Germany and Italy, illegally transporting them to countries such as Egypt and Jordan for torture, and causing them to "disappear" into secret foreign or CIA-run prisons outside the U.S. without any form of due process of law.

The possibility that CIA funds are simply being ripped off by insiders is also acute. The CIA's former number three official, its executive director and chief procurement officer, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, is now under federal indictment in San Diego for corruptly funneling contracts for water, air services, and armored vehicles to a lifelong friend and defense contractor, Brent Wilkes, who was unqualified to perform the services being sought. In return, Wilkes treated Foggo to thousands of dollars' worth of vacation trips and dinners, and promised him a top job at his company when he retired from the CIA."

John 1 day, 5 hours ago on Ferguson: Our focus is fighting crime

Wanna know where the weapons coming from? When the US Department of ATF's "fast and furious' operation was in effect where they claim they were "selling guns" to trace Mexican gun cartels, over 1,000 of these weapons, including assault rifles similar to the one the school boy used, went missing. And around the same time these type weapons started showing up for the first time on the streets of New Providence....still wanna know here the weapons coming from? Even a US sitting judge has been charged with this weapons trafficking scam and has yet to serve one single day in jail. Meanwhile young men in this country continue to be killed like flies.

John 1 day, 7 hours ago on Video said to show plane wreckage being investigated

They were late going out to look for the missing plane and, apparently, the authorities were premature in abandoning the search for the wreckage. All the focus is on the reports that the pilot was a hacker who was not qualified to fly the aircraft. But what about the reports that the plane made it to New Providence but was denied permission to land so attempted to go back to Andros in bad weather and zero visibility. Do air traffic controllers keep tapes of their instr and commutations with pilots? After all six lives were lost

With Canada in the process of legalizing recreational marijuana and it already being legal in a number of US states, the government will, sooner or later, have to address the issue of legal marijuana. Obviously persons from those US States where it is legal and Canada May end up on these shores ‘accidentally ‘ packing the drugs in their luggage or under the assumption that it is legal here. And while government should not rush to legalize it they they may seek to make the laws more accommodating to those who are found with small quantities of the substance. One suggestion may be to make it a ticket offense where an individual pays a reasonable fine. That way they don’t have to be detained and taken to court and visitors will be able to continue their vacation and not have to suffer the humility and embarrassment. And of course more money in the public purse.

John 1 day, 17 hours ago on Island Luck sees 90% money transfer drop

First of all there should never have been a problem with people sending money from one part of the Bahamas to another part. With the absence of banks on some islands and in some settlements on some Islands, Island Luck and other web shops were providing an essential service. Secondly rather than stop the transfer of money completely restrictions could have been put in place like a maximum of $200 per transfer and a limit on the number of transfers. And third the countries that are crying the loudest about anti-money laundering and other concerns have the largest portion of the off shore banking market. Providing banking services to foreigners and non residents of their countries.. Growing tho economies while stifling the Bahamian economy and denying the citizens essential services.

It is nothing to do with mind control. Many Bahamians travel to Florida on a regular basis and so the tragedy that happened there is close to them. More even, many have had the experience of losing a child or loved one to violence and crime in the prime of their lives and when it was least expected and so their hearts are with the families of the 17 victims that were killed and not focused on the killer or his color. Despite what the U S State department frequently publishes about Bahamians they and caring and humble people who still believe in being their brother's keeper.
