A PARLEMENTARIAN GUERILLA WARFARE? ARE YOU KIDDING? GUERILLA PARLEMENTAIRE ? VOUS VOULEZ RIRE?

Image
English version
Dear readers, our opposition politicians are clearly out of ideas when it comes to making you accept the next election.
These politicians know very well that this election will be a joke, but they go on to say that being present all the same in parliament will allow them to conduct a political guerilla against the regime from their positions of MPs and Senators.
These politicians want to make fun of us because they themselves know that Ali Bongo has already given to himself all the important powers since the last amendment to the constitution and that the parliamentary chambers are now no more than decorative institutions.
Dear readers, ask these politicians: If the parliament is no longer able to fully play its role of monitoring of the government action, what role of guerrilla will you play when your wages and personal benefits will be at the mercy of cuts by this same regime?
They really think we are stupid, these politicians.

We will not give up!

THEY WANT TO MAKE YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE IS DEMOCRACY IN GABON. ON VEUT VOUS FAIRE CROIRE QU’IL Y A DÉMOCRATIE AU GABON

English version
Ali Bongo’s electoral staging is in place. Freemasons in power will face Freemasons of the opposition. The hierarchy, that is to say, the great master of the Equatorial Lodge, Ali Bongo, has already chosen the winners; and the vanquished have already received their consolation prizes.
The laughing stock is the Gabonese people who are being told that this election will have any impact other than that of rehabilitating Ali Bongo.

We will not give up!






Version française
La mise en scène électorale d’Ali Bongo est en place. Des francs-maçons du pouvoir affronteront des francs-maçons de l’opposition. La hiérarchie, c’est-à-dire le grand maitre de la Loge Equatoriale, Ali Bongo, a déjà choisi les vainqueurs ; et les vaincus ont déjà reçu leurs lots de consolation.
Les dindons de la farce, ce sont les Gabonais à qui ont dit que cette élection législative aura une quelconque incidence autre que celle de réhabiliter Ali Bongo.

ALI BONGO CANNOT SHOW ANY POSITIVE ECONOMIC RECORD. ALI BONGO NE PEUT PAS DÉMONTRER UN BILAN ÉCONOMIC POSITIF

Image
English version
In his recent speech, Ali Bongo said a lot of irrelevant things, but what he never talked about, was his economic record since 2009.
For example, the chart above shows the performance of American S&P 500 under Obama. The S&P 500 is an American stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 largest companies having listed on the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ. This chart showed that these companies prospered under Obama’s economic policies. This blog is asking for Ali Bongo to present a chart indicating his economic record since 2009.
Such a chart should be amusing.

We will not give up!






Version française
Dans son récent discours, Ali Bongo a dit beaucoup de banalités, mais il n’a jamais parlé de son bilan économique depuis 2009.
Par exemple, le graphique ci-dessus montre la performance du S & P 500 américain sous Obama. Le S & P 500 est un indice boursier américain basé sur les capitalisations boursières des 500 plus grandes sociétés cotées à …

ALI BONGO IS EXCITED ABOUT 6 TONS OF ROBUSTA COFFEE. ALI BONGO S’EXCITE POUR 6 TONNES DE CAFÉ ROBUSTA

Image
English version
Ali Bongo and his regime are ecstatic about an alleged production of Arabica coffee somewhere in Ogooué-Lolo. This production comes from a plantation rehabilitated by the Stabilization and Equalization Fund (Caistab) of Gabon.
This ceremony illustrates how much Gabon has fallen. Dear readers, this plantation produces only 6 tons of coffee. Ali Bongo and his clique show up for 6 tons of coffee. In the 1960s, the Gabonese peasants with their family farms, produced more than 3000 tons of coffee per year in the province of Woleu-Ntem. Today, Ali Bongo and his minions are dancing for 6 tons produced with the assistance of the Caistab. The fall off!
Do you think Leon Mba would have moved for 6 tons of coffee? When he knew that our peasants produced thousands of tons?
We will not give up !

WHY CENSORSHIP IN GABON? POURQUOI LA CENSURE AU GABON ?

Image
English version

Gabon is a dictatorship. This means that the press must be under the regime’s thumb.
In democratic countries, the media plays the role of the fourth estate, that is to say to keep those in power in check. The first three estates are the legislative, executive and judicial powers.
In a dictatorship, the censorship of the press is part of the arsenal of power to put the country under its boots. The dictatorship needs to make the people lose the motivation to liberate themselves.
By censorship measures that it applies, the Ali Bongo regime is very clear: the citizenry is only entitled to information approved by the regime. Any newspaper can express opinions and make analyzes, as long as they are aligned with those of the regime.
A range of sanctions have been put in place by the dictatorship, to regulate censorship: warnings and caution; suspensions and finally ban.

THE ELECTRICAL COVERAGE OF GABON IS MINIMAL AND SPORADIC; HOWEVER, ALI BONGO DECIDES TO BRING IN ELECTRIC CARS. LA COUVERTURE EN ÉLECTRICITÉ EST MINIMALE ET SPORADIQUE AU GABON ; MAIS ALI BONGO DÉCIDE DE FAIRE VENIR DES VOITURES ÉLECTRIQUES

Image
English version
Interruptions of electricity supply in the city of Libreville in particular and in Gabon in general, are untimely and recurrent. Not a day goes by without the Gabonese Energy and Water Corporation (SEEG) apologizing for the "inconvenience" its cuts are causing to its "kind" clientele.
But instead of investing as aggressively as possible to improve the country's electricity coverage, Ali Bongo, while many Gabonese still light up with candles or petrol lamp, has just decided to bring to Gabon the electric car dealer Tesla.
This blog makes the following comments:
-The base price of a Tesla Model S 2018 and $ 90000, or 45 million CFA francs. How many Gabonese people can afford this jewel in Gabon in the midst of an austerity crisis?
-The tesla has an average autonomy of 600km per charge. If, on average, a Gabonese employee works 15 km from home and has to travel twice a day, and must drop off and pick up his children at and from school twice a day for an…

HOW ALI BONGO PLANS TO WIN HIS LEGISLATIVE ELECTIONS. OUR ELECTORALISTS FRIENDS WILL BE HAPPY. COMMENT ALI BONGO ENTEND REMPORTER SES ÉLECTIONS LÉGISLATIVES. NOS AMIS ÉLECTORALISTES SERONT CONTENTS

English version
According to La Lettre du Continent, Ali Bongo is firmly committed to using the next legislative elections to improve his image. Apparently, many of our opposition electioneer friends do not mind.
It is Bilié By Nzé’s Mogabo that is responsible for electing all the chosen. Mogabo’s members have already been pre-positioned throughout the country.
Alain-Claude Bilie By Nze, current Sports Minister is a candidate in Makokou, Ogooue-Ivindo; the Minister of Foreign Affairs Régis Immongault Tatangani in Lastourville, Ogooue-Lolo; the Minister of the Civil Service Ali Akbar Onanga Y'Obegue in Akieni, in Haut OgooueLolo; in Ogooue-Lolo former ministers Blaise Louembe and Pacome Moubelet Boubeya, will face Guy Nzouba Ndama, in a simulacrum pitting the regime against the opposition that aims to give to the Gabonese people a visual of democracy while everything has already been concluded in advance.
In Port-Gentil, Pascal Houangni Ambouroué and Jean-Fidèle Otandault will be purel…

STILL BIZARRE FACTS IN THE GABONESE OIL SECTOR. TOUJOURS DES BIZARRERIES DANS LE SECTEUR PÉTROLIER GABONAIS

Image
English version
Apparently, the oil company Vaalco has been trying to obtain an extension of its license for the Etame field which ends in three years. But to this day, Ali Bongo is taking his time.
Vaalco's management reportedly had contacts with Gabonese oil minister Pascal Houangni Ambouroué and with Gabon's ambassador to the United States, Michael Moussa Adamo, a close associate of Prime Minister Emmanuel Issoze Ngondet. Strangely, in the oil sector, only Ali Bongo’s friends have the right to engage in it.
The Gabonese regime does not want to extend the permit as long as Vaalco does not pay large amounts of money that the Gabonese interlocutors demand.
Meanwhile, the Gabonese dance Elone on the orders of Bilié by Nzé!

THE CURIOSITIES OF THE GABONESE OIL SECTOR. LES CURIOSITÉS DU SECTEUR PÉTROLIER GABONAIS

Image
English version
Dear readers, do you know that there is in Gabon a mysterious oil field not appearing on any map of the Gabonese offshore! Curious is it not?
According to Africa Energy Intelligence, this secret field is estimated to contain 25 million barrels of crude oil reserves; and would be of great interest to Perenco. This site was first named Roussette and Espadon, then Sardine. More seriously, the granting of exploitation permits for this site completely escapes the Gabonese Ministry of Petroleum. But during this time, the Gabonese dance Elone on the orders of Bilié by Nzé!
To be awarded this site, Perenco secretly negotiates with, not a Gabonese individual, financial Yariv Elbaz owner of the company Forafric Energy, which also manages certain assets of the Gabonese sovereign fund.
Dear readers, Yariv Elbaz has no expertise in oil. The decrees of exploitation would have been signed by the Gabonese Minister of Budget and Public Accounts, Jean-Fidèle Otandault, but having neither th…

ACCORDING TO THE BEAC, GABONESE EXTERNAL ASSETS HAVE DROPPED BY 30%. D’APRÈS LA BEAC, LES AVOIRS EXTERNES GABONAIS ONT PÉRICLITÉS DE 30%

Image
English version
What is a central bank? It is a public financial institution that manages the currency of a country or a group of countries and controls the money supply. The central bank is the "bank of banks"
What is the money supply? It is the amount of money circulating in the circumscribed area.
The BEAC countries make deposits. These deposits with the central bank constitute the assets of these countries held by these countries.
The net foreign assets (NEA) of a central bank are the net claims or liabilities of this monetary institution on the outside. It is all the activities of the bank that relate to its operations with the outside. These net foreign assets are the difference between external assets (investments) and external liabilities (potentially debts or risks).
The financial press tells us that Gabon's external assets at the BEAC (the Bank of Central African States), fell by 30% in the first quarter of 2018. That is to say that the commitments of Gabon taken ex…

BALTHAZAR’S FEAST. LE FESTIN DE BALTHAZAR

Image
English version
Balthasar's Feast is a famous Rembrandt painting from 1635, which depicts a scene from the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament. It is the feast that precedes the announcement of the fall of Babylon because of its extravagant decadence, its depraved paganism and its profaning practices.
For this feast, Balthasar, king of the Babylonians, had gold and silver objects placed on the tables. Not satisfied with mocking the temple from which the objects had been removed, he glorified, while the people drank, the "gods of gold and silver, copper, iron, wood, and stone"; further offending the one and only God of Jewish belief.
We are there in Gabon. The similarities are obvious.
We will not give up!

THE DANCE OF HANGED MEN. LE BAL DES PENDUS

Image
English version
Arthur Rimbaud, a French author of the nineteenth century, was a very precautious poet. It is at the age of sixteen that he wrote "Le bal des pendus"; a poem in which he defends the paladins, those knights of the Middle Ages who fought for just causes; and strongly criticizes the state institutions that oppress the people. This blog sees in these Gabonese dancing at Bilié by Nzé’s orders, some poor people hanged in waiting, who, having lost their compass, no longer distinguish the paladin from their executioner who tomorrow, will execute them.
We will not give up!



RIMBAUD: Dance of the Hanged Men (1870)

On the black gallows, one-armed friend, The paladins are dancing, dancing The lean, the devil's paladins The skeletons of Saladins.
Sir Beelzebub pulls by the scruff His little black puppets who grin at the sky, And with a backhander in the head like a kick, Makes them dance, dance, to an old Carol-tune!
And the puppets, shaken about, entwine their thin arms: Their bre…
