The DOW is under 7,000 and have been for a couple of weeks. How's the COFA funds doing so far in the stock market?

COFA funds - wow our last life boat! How much do we have left? Less than $100 million. How much does the government need to run Palau? At least $60 million. You work out the mathematics!

Panic time! Support President Toribiong! Do not debate! Do not hesitate! Give our wise President 1000% support. Give him the mandate to save Palau!

We need reform! We need to put our past corrupt leaders in jail! We need to show the world that we are a law abiding people and that nobody is above the law in Palau!

Hello my brothers and sisters,

A question, why is former AG Beatie allowed to practice as an attorney when he is under investigation for serious criminal activities?

The AG should be suspended pending investigations. His passport should be impounded!

I don't know my brothers Red Herring and Islander, but I can recall you and others being so fiercely anti-TR/SP Walton and intimately pro-JN/Nautilus back in Nov'07. Mesulang

Red Herring wants us to give JT "the mandate to save Palau!" Huh? Didn't you vote for him because he was going to save Palau? And now he needs a mandate? And some black magic resistant SUVs?

Olekoi. 4 years of this blachediil.

I was surprised no press release from JT office about his recent trip to meet with U.S. Sec. of State Clinton...I mean he picks up a check from the Taiwan Embassy (which, I read was pmt for the last of TR's projects) and nothing for this visit..Hmmmm. Very interesting.

Guess he couldn't take the camera man to take photos/videos like he did in Taiwan or have staff make up any BS story about how successful JT was on his trip.LOL. You need facts and actual results. That's what I love about the U.S., any taxpayer or media can call to confirm--you know, TRANSPARENCY. I've also noticed the U.S. State Dept is quick to respond to any "mis-information" that makes it to the media. You think Bezzner reads the papers here?

I read in the today's TiaBelauNews that there was a write-up that look like it was forwarded by DOI, but it was also just the usual diplomatic rhetoric. It also reported the quote from a letter that looked like JT had earlier received from Sec. Clinton, which basically had the usual congratulations and other "diplomatic" rhetoric. Very, very, interested.

Heard recent comments about something like "that's what happens when you send the Pres and not his representative". Not too much room left to negotiate or to ask for more immediate assistance if you get no concrete answer since the Head of State or the President already showed up. Or, maybe, JT, was just ill-advised.LOL.

Remember newspapers also mentioned JT requesting for a visit with U.S. Pres. Obama? Any word on that visit?

Maybe, JT might end up needing some "magic" to get some results instead of just "illusions" or "smoke screens". Some of us are not falling for those tricks. And, the numbers are growing.

Hey Compact or Confused,

Sour cream is the order with you guys. You claim that JT is not acheiving any results with his visits! Bull shit! What do you think JT is, a magician!

JT has ONLY been in office for less than 3 months, what do you expect? JT needs to clear Palau's reputation of 16 years of corruption. This will take a couple of yesrs to do. There will be no investment or new substantial assistance from Europe and/or America coming to Palau until the international community is satisfied that JT is Mr. Clean.

JT has to put into place practicable laws, otherwise the same result - no meaningful investment! All this takes time!

You show your stupidity in expecting thing to happen immediately. You supporters of Nakamura and Rememgesau wasted valuable time so now suffer along with the rest of us.

But rest assured JT will get good results for Palau in the end. JT will not squander valuable opportunities as TR did in not encouraging the NC project!

Sulang

Islander,

LOL. Thanks for your opinion. Why not give us some specific examples or proof of the corruption? Sorry, some of us are sick and tired of your unfounded accusations. I believe that is called gossip.

Be careful about spreading lies. It will only work for so long since it gets pretty stale when you have no proof. Have you read any of the recent articles about the awards on the lawsuits for defamation of character? Oh, forgot you have the "cloak of your anonymity".

As we all know, KN and TR were not perfect, but they had very specific results and did not waste time blaming previous administrations. REAL leaders don't make excuses. Only those with a victim mentality and the weak make excuses and play the "blame game". You poor thing!

Just show us some results. That is the only fair way to judge anything--based on results. We'll be glad to give credit where credit is due. How long do we have to wait? Oh, that's right 4 years is the time frame.

Wait! Are you kidding about JT being able to actual prove himself as "Mr. Clean"? That's a joke in itself.

Your delusions of grandeur never cease to amaze anyone. And, you expecting us to believe in the NC project just shows how ignorant you are. LOL.

amused

I agree with you....some of us blame the prev admin and spread all bull shit thinking that new admin in clean..

Islander.

Stop spreading your bull shit lies what ever, the prev admin did not even blame anybody when they took the Office.....or make any excuses...how can JT be Mr:Clean with in the community.....when his prev client was not satisfied with service as an attorney for them...talking about the result at the end this is the result ..TJ will get full benefits with in 4years....community will get nothing...

Dear Amused and Kerdi,

The specific examples or proof of the corruption is already in the hands of those who are bringing justice to KN and TR. Let the process carry on and you will have the whole corrupted picture of the TR and KN regime in Technicolor.

If you are already sick and tired of my “unfounded” accusations just imagine how you are going to feel when these accusations are proven in court - LoL and LmL...

You ask me to be careful about spreading lies and that it will only work for so long since it gets pretty stale when you have no proof. Have you read any of the recent articles about the awards on the lawsuits for defamation of character? Yes Amused, you should definitely heed your own advise … don’t worry about me, I have the proof and soon all of Palau will see the proof.

You said “As we all know, KN and TR were not perfect, but they had very specific results and did not waste time blaming previous administrations”. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA yeah they did not have any previous admins to speak bad about!
REAL leaders don't make excuses – that’s right, JT and his administration has not done anything wrong that’s why there is no blaming here... the fact is that TRand aKN screwed this country so bad that there is no escape but to tell the facts of how they ruined Palau or else you brainless fools can’t connect the dots and assume that the current dilemma in Palau is resultant of the current administration We are merely drawing the line to separate from previous administration’s misadministration from the current administration’s process of repairing the huge damages done by TR and KN Admins.

Finally, you said “Wait! Are you kidding about JT being able to actual prove himself as "Mr. Clean"? That's a joke in itself”. Yes it is a joke because at least JT will not be spending the next few years proving anything other than that he is the President while TR and KN will definitely be spending lots of time trying to disprove all the evidence of corruption against them.

Olekoi, you people keep blaming things on KN and TR but guess what, JT is in the drivers seat now. Bush screwed up the economy in America and yet you don't see Obama bitching about it. Rather, it is as if work is progressing and things are getting done every week. All I have heard from JT is he may cut jobs and yet awards senators pay raises and ministers new cars which he "leases" from one of his political supporters at inflated prices. So far I am not impressed, so before you go blaming the broken economy on our past leaders, perhaps you should tell your administration to clean up its act. Chebuul a beluad if we continue on like this. Making excuses is a waste of time, the past is done, fix the loopholes and get to work on fixing the future.

Pistol pete.

Your claiming that you have proof for corruption and soon all Palau will see the proof...so can you post your proof in this blog for everyone to see....Palau is not Country...it's small tiny Island in Micronesia....during KN/TR they never mention cut hours or furlough to scared people, they struggling and people are getting 80hrs for two weeks....unlike other Island/Country that cut hours....

Yes, we can't get anywhere by playing the blame game here. And I think Toribiong is doing the best he can to get things moving forward. I do disagree with him allowing his ministers getting new cars opt to keep their so-called "image." What was he thinking? By the way, respect is earned!

OMDUI,
Please post a topic for two bills introduced by Sen. Paul Ueki (ban on right hand vehicles and repeal of the ban on shark fishing/fins).

We could use some wider discussions on what in the world is in this rookie Senator's mind?

Mesulang.

So, the consensus seems to be that we should cut the new administration some slack since they've only been in office for 2 weeks, then 1 month, then 1.5 months, then 2 months, and now ONLY 3 months. So what is the established protocol/time frame for when we should start seeing signs of results or solutions? Just so I can patiently wait pursuant to established protocol/time frame.

Islanders,

Im not going to read all this comments just because of that shark fin thing goin on....But to be honest i think this Government should think about reducing their salary....50K a year? i make about half of that here in da U.S.of A...And im comfortable...But in Palau what do they need that much money for? Bribe? Prostitute?GAmble? Or some young lady on da side? ITs just so Sad.......The new President of Palau should do something....Too bad theres so many strings attached.....If you get it......

Everyone,

FYI: As of last week, Youlsau Bells is officially on extended off-island medical leave until the end of April and have appointed Mrs. Polloi as Acting Director of OERC but still request all people to cc her all copies of communications.

This e-mail tells me that ever since she allegedly lied to the whole Palau, YB is still pretty much a national environmental planner and still getting paid by Palau government of $50,000/yr!!!

Everyone, this is a serious crime and President Toribiong is letting YB getting away with this!!!

flower,

this is appalling... "extended off-island medical leave"?! did i miss something? she's still in that position? there doesn't seem to be anyone who still believes that her credentials are legit. how has she explained herself to her co-workers?


ngirngemelas,

i think you make a very good point. we should keep a fire under the administration's butt RIGHT NOW. once we see results, then we can ease off. if they can so efficiently give themselves pay raises and get new cars, why can't we expect results ALREADY?

the SP and "ombudsman" (what a joke) have got their hands full.

Kikim, Completely disagree with you. I think Palau needs to move out of this mentality that civil servants are cheap. We want the best people to work on improving our country, so let's not short change the people who like people in the US paid $$$ to get an education. I too work abroad, and make more than our "leaders" and it is very hard for me to move back till I have enough money to pay off my loans and live comfortably.
