Over the next five years since the Weah administration took power, it failed on all five of its MCC scorecards.

In the grand scheme of things, it is clear that the Weah administration has no respect for independent media. President Weah and his team can rest assured that they are not alone. If President Weah wants to see an “empowered” media, he should realize that neither enmity nor friendship is the way.

Guterres stressed the need for a humanitarian cease-fire as well as allowing the release of hostages, and allowing for the “massive entrance” of aid into Gaza. Stressing the need to distinguish between Hamas and Palestinians, Guterres said, “If we don’t make that distinction, I think it’s humanity itself that loses meaning”.

Jesus made these assertions to show that there's no neutrality in the battle between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Satan. In other words, we can either be for God or against him, for there is no sitting on the fence in the fight between light and darkness. Similarly, in the upcoming presidential runoff election between the Unity Party (UP) and the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), there is and should be no neutrality. We all, as Liberians, are stakeholders in this runoff election and must take a side by participating. We are at a crossroads as a nation, and the runoff election is everybody’s business.

Many Arab American and younger Democrats have been critical of President Joe Biden’s unyielding support of Israel in the conflict as it carries out a military campaign against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The last member of Congress to face a censure was Representative Adam Schiff of California. In June, the chamber’s Republicans formally reprimanded him for what they called misrepresentations in congressional investigations he led of then-President Donald Trump, culminating in his first impeachment.
