ANDY CROXALL:ST. MAARTEN’S LEADERSHIP: FRONT STREET QUALITY OR BACKSTREET TRASH PT 1

  • Suppose I bought a fake Rolex watch on Back Street for $50.00, while in the truest sense of the word selling a Chinese made watch branded as a Rolex is not legal, it is however done everyday all over the world. It’s basically a no harm, no foul, type of deal. For $50.00 I knew I wasn’t buying a real Rolex, for that I‘d have to shop on Front Street …and pay a lot more. If however I was foolish enough to attempt to sell this same watch as a real Rolex and my prospective buyer was a police detective, I’d find myself handcuffed and placed under arrest for fraud in a New York minute. As I should be.

    If I applied for a job and on my C.V. I were to list among my qualifications that I had an advanced degree from a respected university which I did not have, I might get hired, but odds are good when my boss caught wind of it I would be fired. As I should be.

    Where am I going with this?

    Recently I was looking at the official Government website of St.Maarten and I happened to look at the page where Prime Minister Sarah Wescott-Williams has her biography. On this page she lists her work history as well as her educational background which I’ve copied and pasted directly from the website that reads as follows.

    “She complements her experience in Public Service, with an Honor’s Associate Degree in Business and Finance, a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration, and a Master’s in Public Administration, suma cum laude from La Salle University, USA.”

    I must say very impressive sounding at first glance. I did a bit of research on the internet and found out that La Salle University truly offers a Rolex quality education at a price to match. The basic tuition listed by them is $16,750.00 per quarter. Note that this is from the real La Salle University, the one located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    On Friday February 18th I picked up the phone and called La Salle University in Philadelphia . To my surprise, my call was immediately answered by a professor who is also head of his department. I told him the purpose of my call was to confirm academic credentials being claimed by a Government official which I suspected to be bogus. He told me that due to privacy laws he doubted anyone could provide me with the specific information I was requesting. He did however tell me after I read to him Sarah’s claims listed on the website, that “La Salle University does not offer a graduate degree in Public Administration.”

    How can this be? If you look up diploma mills on Wikipedia under the section titled “Common attributes of diploma mills” you will find La Salle University cited as an example. No this is not the same La Salle University run by the Christian Brothers teaching order I referred to earlier. This La Salle University was run by a convicted criminal named James Kirk (no relation to the fictional Captain on Star Trek). If you search under James Kirk diploma mills on Wikipedia you will find this La Salle University was shut down in 1996 by the FBI, U.S. postal inspectors, and the Internal Revenue Service. Mr. Kirk was sentenced to five years in federal prison and was ordered not to operate any more schools.

    Here in the United States we have had instances where politicians have obtained diploma mill degrees. One of the most notable being Florida Congressman Claude Pepper who in 1985 obtained a fake Doctorate at a cost of $1780.00 so that he could call himself Dr. Pepper (also the name of a popular US made soft drink) and to illustrate how easy and cheap it was to do. The difference being he already had a legitimate Law Degree from Harvard and he did not obtain this degree in an effort to deceive the voters but rather to inform them of a serious problem.

    In my mind claiming to have graduated summa cum laude from an unaccredited school is like saying you are the world’s tallest midget, at the end of the day you still come up short.

    It’s time for the Prime Minister to come clean about her education. Is it a Front Street Rolex quality degree or Back Street trash?

    A helpful hint to the Prime Minister, it might be more convincing the next time you claim honors to actually spell those honors correctly. Summa is spelled with two m’s not one as you spelled it on the webpage and in your campaign literature.

    I’m sure the Minister of Home Affairs and Kingdom Relations Piet Hein Donner will want to know of this. He recently took full responsibility for the screening process of St.Maarten’s Ministers during a debate with the Dutch Second Chamber. Why should he be made to look like a fool amongst his colleagues?

    The people of Country St.Maarten certainly deserve to know the truth about who is governing their Country.

    Part two will provide more information on why this situation is so wrong and dangerous.

FROM THE HORSES MOUTH: THE DP FELT BETRAYED BY MARIETJE!

There’s a lot behind the Marietje hit,

and if you have a lot of enemies like the Buncampers do, then everyone’s going to want to extract their pound of flesh, when you’re down.

Sarah Westin Williams felt that Marietje needed to be taught a lesson, because had bailed Marietje out of several close calls, and predicaments, involving many issues from busses to land being bought and sold.

Read the “SAVED BY THE BELL” emails, if you need to catch up.

After everything that they had done to save Marietje, they felt that Toontje still managed to get Marietje into discussions with Theo, Frans and the Dark Side.

When Theo fled to Marlin, The DP were very upset. And their was an agreement to pretty much make Theo’s life as miserable as possible.

How do you think DP felt, when all of a sudden, Marietje was acting all chummy with Theo at meetings etc, when they had specific orders to give him the cold shoulder?

The DP firmly belives that Toontje is the scourge of the earth, and that he was behind the manipulation of Marietje, so I now understand why, they were feeding me “Toontje” info along with the “Marietje” info.

Right now the DP has absolutely NO sympathy for Marietje.
They speak of her being “caught up”, and crying when she was busted, and they her, we will stand by you, as long as you stand by us!

But they know because Frans was running behing Marietje, Theo and The NA back, to snitch out his own people in order to break away from Marlin.

Frans lied, and said that he never negotiated with the DP but he did. While he was NA, Frans was negotiating with Theo, to do their own thing, and bring in Marietje, but to play it safe, he was negotiating with Sarah and Rollocks behind the scene.

So it’s starting to appear, that Marietje was only given that position a few months ago, because Sarah decided that she had not been humiliated enough the first time.

Because what else could it be?

They gave her the position, in November, and by December she was facing prison, all based on information provided to the prosecutor by her own party.

So this is some sick, twisted, convaluted game,

and many of the main players were not even aware of how they were played, and how well they were played, until they themselves read their names in the wickedlicks emails.

There’s much more to come.

And when I say Theo is next,

you know I ain’t lying,

when have I been wrong on this before???

Theo has a slick, passive-aggresive type A personality working with him, and this person believes that he IS responsible for the release of certain “confidential” information.

So I am aware that the Government is doing everything in its power to stop me and to slow me down,

so it’s funny to see that the people who are trying to shut me down, are still feeding me info about their “colleagues”, because they know what’s up.

Everyone has their own agenda, everyone has their own motives.

RUI BAGINA NEEDS TO CONTACT US AT: novodia9@yahoo.com, and SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID TO THE WORLD

I’ve been reading about Rui Bagina for a while now,

and have been following his hunger strike.

There’s so much info to transcribe, that I simply don’t have the time to retype everything.

We would like to get his Hunger Strike Protests into our Network.

It’s sad, that both  French St Martin, and Dutch St Maarten are dealing with all of these Human Rights Issues.

See I am in the same situation as Mr Bagina,

and I can’t go on a hunger strike,

I am tooooo small for that, I would disappear……..like the Dutch Gov. wants me to.

So my protest are my blogs.

And I do this all myself, but I do have back up waiting to step up to the plate, if I can’t.

We’d like to get Bagina’s message out to the rest of the world.

There’s too much suppression of the press going on in SXM.

And members of the media, it appears wants to kill the messenger (ME), because of all of the corruption that’s being exposed.

If you are in the St Maarten “Press”……

and you don’t know that this B.S. has been going on….

then you are in the wrong  business, BOZO!!!

The wrong business!

So get mad at me for doing your jobs for you, you punk bitches!

And expect your corrupt, bendova asses to be exposed to millions all over the internet.

Pretending that you don’t know anything about emails, when I worked at YOUR STATION FOR JULIAN ROLLOCKS, AND NOT ONCE DID YOU HAVE THE BALLS TO COME OUT AND SAY, THAT GIRL WAS WORKING ON THE CAMERAS IN MY STUDIOS.

A great big F-U to all of the big boyz in the media who are bent over, and have been Kama Sutra’d by our dirty government for years!

“A CONUNDRUM” DIRECTLY FROM THE ST MAARTEN DAILY HERALD pg. 2 FEB 24 2011…MUST READ!!!!

                                                                                                                “A CONUNDRUM”

The question arises why it seems very little of the crime committed is actually reported to the media.

The reason for this appears to be deliberate censorship, not by restricting what the journalists write, but in withholding news from the press.

There are, of course, times when such non-reporting is due to the nature of the investigation or the stat of the investigation at that time.  However, the majority of the “non-reporting” can be considered simple and straightforward censorship of the news by the police in order not to damage the reputation of the island.

One senior officer is recorded as saying, “This island would be finished for tourism in a week if we reported everyting. We dare not portray it as it really is to the detriment of our main industry.

Are police officers doing this on their own initiative?

Does  a policeman or woman of whatever rank have the right and authority to censor the news to the community? Has there been some high level decision by government to instruct the police regarding this matter?

Police work may be done in an atmosphere of some secrecy, but the mere fact that a crime has been committed can hardly be regarded as something to be withheld from the public. Residents might wonder if this de facto censorship of the news is appropriate.

Do the people who live on the island have a right to uncensored news or should they accept that they are in this respect second-class citizens as compared to visitors? In other words: is the need to lie or mislead tourists greater than theneed of government to allow proper and truthful information to be given to the people who elected them?

As one does not want to damage the reputation of the island, the “quick fix” censorship that seems to be in force currently is perhaps a short-term method of cover-up while measures are taken to address the problem. However, the long-term shortcomings of the police and their funding as a whole, then maybe the strategy  currently employed should be reonsidered.

Government should focus more on the under-funding and manning of law enforcement agencies.  The latter have to actually make the streets safe, not just for the tourists, but also for the people who live here.

Many locals are fed up with the crime as well as the deliberate withholding of information about what is going on. Some believe this is more to protect the reputation of the local authorities than that of “The Friendly Island”.

The result has been that some have attempted to start Websites and Facebook pages to report crime. The comments about St Maarten/St Martin on the Internet are gradually increasing, with a worldwide audience.

Local newspapers have a far more limited circulation and it is high time they are enabled to reflect what is really happening and for politicians and authorities to take the bull by the horns and deal with the problems instead of hiding behind censorship, lack of and mis-information.

The government, police and the sellers of tourism are hiding behind a fixwhile they are not effectively correcting the problem. As a result, all people can see is taht this censorship is not a short-term measure, but simply a long term lie that allows the facade to continue to spiral downwards.

Publish, and be damned, because that is the only way in which the authorities will be motivated and forced to address the problems with a true solution instead of masking the inactivity and lack of the resources that are genuinely needed.

If the truth becomes known, the resources and commitment will have to be found.

I DID NOT PHOTOCOPY OR SCAN THE ABOVE, I TYPED IT UP, SO THERE IS A CHANCE THAT THERE IS A  TYPO OR MISPELLED WORD, OR WHATEVER..IT’S ME. I type pretty fast, so there’s always the chance of error.

Like I said about Leopold James and everyone else, if I see anyone in the media trying to do something about our current situation, I will take note, and upload it to a worldwide audience, and if they are messing up, I will cover that too.

I do give kudos to the Daily Herald for having the guts to print this, considering all of the pressure that they’ve been put under.

HOW CAN THEO AND SARAH BE THE DECIDERS ON WHO’S CRIMINALLY INVESTIGATED WHEN THEY ARE SXM’S BIGGEST LAND CRIMINALS?

St Maarteners know that our politicians are corrupt,

and that’s why record numbers of voters stayed home during the last two elections.

St Maarteners, still however are strong believers in the democratic process, therefore even people

who are aware of the corruption, such as myself, went out and voted anyway-because you cannot criticize the democratic process, and the politicians if you don’t vote.

I voted for change, which would be Theo and Friends, and that’s before I knew of his hundred million dollar bridge to nowhere.

I figured that Theo and his family and stolen enough money and land to last several generations, to he was ready to stop stealing, and lead St Maarten into a bright new future.

Sarah, will never ever get my vote again.

Outside of the Wathey’s, and Julian Rollocks, I truly do not see anyone more corrupt than Sarah.

Sarah, it has been proven, has her hands in every illegal land deal

Sarah, has a hand in every Machiavellian movement that seems to be the M.O. for dealing with any situation withing their party.

Sarah, it has been proven, has been aware of every dirty deal, and backhanded manoevre.

Sarah, it has shown, only received Prime Ministership, because she has the dirt on Theo (but so do I), and because in a backdoor

arrangement with Julian Rollocks and Theo Heyliger, Theo decided that it didn’t matter how dirty, and corrupt she was. As long as she supported his 100 million dollar bridge to nowhere (a project where the Wathey’s as usually, will abscond with 99.9% of the funding before the project even begins.

Julian Rollocks has many offshore bank accounts, but Theo Heyliger and the Wathey’s have more.

When I started researching Theo Heyliger and the Watheys back in ’09, my first search were offshore bank accounts

and property and land.

According to Antonio Brown, The Wathey’s own an excorbitant amount of land, and most of it illegally.

KADASTER FILES HAVE TO BE MADE PUBLIC!

There’s a reason, why there is a hardcore alcoholic in charge at the Kadaster,

and there’s a reason why he’s a hardcore alcoholic.

There’s been a party going on for awhile at the Kadaster,

and the St Maartener, was not invited.

Who were invited were:

The Hotels

The Politicians

The Wealthy Foreigner

The Chinese

The Indians

The Guyanese……………

But not the St Maartener, who all of this land belongs to, and has belonged to for generations.

The Netherlands has realized that the corruption, and downright criminal activities are so wide spread, that they definitely will have to hire tons of extra staff, to deal with all of these criminals that we have in government.

It almost seems that SXM needs another category 5 to clean all of this mess up.

A category 5 to take down all of those illegally built buildings, destroying our Salt Pond, and restore it to it’s natural beauty.

A category 5 to take down all of those fancy houses in the hills, stolen materials to build homes on stolen land.

A category 5 to take down the government building and all of the illegals vending on it’s “honorable” front lawn

A category 5 to flood out the government building, and give it a thorough cleansing once and for all.

Why is it, that everyone is ready, willing and able to gripe and complain about what’s going on, but never have the courage to get up and do something about it, but they do have the time to criticize anyone who tries to tackle the problem and do something about it.

Nothing but gangsta’s in government, and what we consider to be “our press”, The Today, is calling for people to go to the home of bloggers, and physically stop them from printing the truth.

St Maarten, needs to be more like St Martin!.

The St Martiners don’t take shit from anyone!

And their government would never do to them, what we allow our corrupt government to do to us.

We need to start protesting.

Sit ins, Shut Downs, No Work Days……….

St Maarteners’ have to unite and protest

against this government created mess.

Look at Julian Rollocks’ new facebook, there’s Fabian Badejo, a man who is always preaching change, and there’s Roland Duncan, that picture will make a great mugshot. There’s Brian Meade, showing his face because his corrupt activities have not been exposed for years in the matrix. There’s Cindie Charles. The employee, who has worked for Rollocks for years, but has no work permit or documentation. And that’s why when Julian Rolllocks orders her to cover up his dirt, or do his dirty work, such as he did, when he evicted that tenant. Cindie Charles, the woman who claims God in every email, goes out and does the dirty work for him.

Cindy Charles the great Christian lady, and Julian Rollocks’ Pawn shop employee, is fully aware of what he’s done to me, and to his family. Yet you’ll see her every morning in the Beach Islander alley, opening up that illicitly run pawnshop, without a conscience to nag at her.

The bloggings will continue,

until morale improves in St Maarten.

We need to Strike,

many of us are of both French and Dutch descent,

so we do have it in us to protest this B.S. government filled with nothing but crooks, and felons

Join us at Facebook at our ST MAARTENERS AGAINST CORRUPTION GROUP, AND MAKE SURE TO LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW THAT ST MAARTENERS ARE ONLINE TRYING TO FIGHT THIS ILLEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT!

WHO INVESTIGATES THE MINISTER OF JUSTICE, ROLAND DUNCAN?

Yesterday Minister of Justice, Roland Duncan’s “driver” was busted.

This person is/was a VKS police officer.

My question is, who investigates the Minister of Justice?

In the U.S. I know that their police forces have an agency called “Internal Affairs”.

Internal Affairs are police officers who investigate other police officers.

The system was put in place a long time ago, because it is of course absurd for someone to investigate themselves.

I got pulled over for speeding in St Louis about ten years ago.

It was like ten miles over the limit, no biggie, I pulled over for my ticket.

Long story short, I told her she was “racially profiling”, because she was the same cop that had harrassed one of my African American friends the week before.  She tried to take me down town, but I knew my rights, so I asked her for the number for Internal Affairs…..

She let me go!

I called Internal Affairs, and reported the police officer. At the time my husband told me not to follow through with it, so I called Internal Affairs, and left a message for them to drop it.

They called back, and told me not to drop the case, because they had received dozens of complaints already, about this one particular Forest Park officer.

They said that people like that officer were giving THEM a bad name, and that’s why she had to be stopped.

Does SXM have people like that here?

Does St Maarten have an Internal Affairs for their police department?

Has it been put under consideration since our new country status?

What makes this question even more provocative, is that even if we do/will have an Internal Affairs in our police dept., they too would fall under Minister of Justice Roland Duncan, who is currently being accused of many ethical and what some might call criminal misdeeds.

Wouldn’t Holland HAVE to be the ones getting to the bottom of this?

How can you do an investigation on ANYONE, when EVERYONE is related here, and has something to lose?

The majority of our government and politicians are made up of local and former Antillian islands clans, that’s why the surnames have pretty much remained the same during the past 50 years, Richardson, Labega, bla…bla…..bla…..

This blog should post to our group site on Facebook: ST MAARTENERS AGAINST CORRUPTION….

So maybe someone there will have some answers.

WHY IS THE SXM GOVERNMENT STILL BEING ALLOWED TO “SWAP” OUR LAND WITH THE BIG BOYS? SXM IS ONLY 37SQ MILES!

These blogs will contain information, from other SXM news sources, beginning 10-10-10.

According to the January 3rd 2011 edition of the Daily Herald, page 3….

Theo is still busily arranging a land swap deal with Port de Plaissance. When are St Maarteners going to stand up, and say: “enough!”.
Theo Heyliger is not removed, or disassociated from the land scandals that are going on, because everyone knows that this starts from the top.

Do you remember when Port de Plaissance first came on the scene, and TOLD St Maarteners that they were going to re-route OUR traffic, and build a golf course?

St Maarteners stood up and protested. And they allow St Maarteners to protest-occasionally. And they send their “representatives” to appease the masses, while they are reassuring the “Big Boys” behind the scene, that St Maarteners have a short memory span, and negotiations will continue, business as usually-behind the scenes of course.

Now Theo Heyliger, the man with the plan…..

to build St Maarten’s own bridge to nowhere,

with a 100 million dollar budget, as our youngsters steal for food, and our pensioners go without on the pittance that government allows them after decades of BUILDING St Maarten.

Our government relies on the fact that St Maarteners seem to have a short memory span.

But not anymore. I am in touch with some True Grassroots St Maarteners!

The ones that listen to every radio program, and record it….

watch every local show, and record it.

Collect all of the papers, for archival reasons….. Since last year we have been working on converting a lot of analogue video and tape to digital, in order to upload statements that your government has made and backpeddled on, but hope that you’ve forgotten about.

Our first audio uploaded will be Theo Heyliger on Lloyd Richardson. We can carefully dissect every Theo says…and we will add subtitles, and match them to his movements and activities now.

It’s called accountability…….

No longer will you be allowed to make random statements on the air, and to the paper, with no intentions of fulfilling your promises, or following through on your statements.

What qualifies me to be the person to dissect our local media?

First of, I would be the only LOCAL writing about St Maarten.

I do not have, or take paid advertisment in St Maarten, only internationally through Google and other webservices, that way Advertisers will never be able to decide for us St Maarteners what’s news, and what’s not news.

I will be writing these blogs, adding the data and links from the sources, and adding my perspectives as A ST MAARTENER.

It’s called freedom of press.

THE SXM MEDIA, NEWSPAPERS, RADIO, T.V. WILL BE DISSECTED AT SXMPOLITICO.

People in St Maarten don’t just need to read the newspapers,

they need to read between the lines.

I will begin with the fact that St Maarten has the worst press representation of the people outside of Darfur.

Dutch St Maarten has to major newspapers, The Daily Herald, and The Today.

The Daily Herald is undeniably “corporate”, they receive tons of funding from government sources simply for being to label themselves “free press”.

According to my sources in Government, The Daily Herald is awarded a lot of money, that could be going towards locals trying to write about St Maarten, from a local perspective. The Daily Herald is one of the worst piece of “journalism” out there. The only reason that The Daily Herald can be called a “newspaper”, is because their only competition, is the used toilet paper rag…”The Today”.  Another rag that was not set up to provide information to the people, but to settle scores because someone wants to maintain a certain conservative, family man appearance, but his nature, his natural instincts compel him to be anything but the respected, family man. So the Today was simply set up to leverage someone, and to give them the chance to lash out and anyone who would dare mention any alternative lifestyle.

If you are going to rely on these two rags as your news source, you’re going to be in big trouble, because The St Maarten government basically owns and controls both of those organizations. One of the huge conflicts of interest in our government, is that the largest business and land owners on St Maarten are members of the government, and politicians. They don’t just pay for ads during the election season during the campaign, they are also paying big money all year round, to promote and market their various enterprises.

There should be a law against that.

The Today and The Daily Herald are owned by government, and threatened and intimidated on a regular basis, according to Hilbert Haar, and the editor of the Daily Herald, who I spoke to on February 21 2010, when I visited the Daily Herald. Stories, and hit jobs are written and pulled, not to inform the public, but to allow their puppet masters such as William Marlin, Sarah Westin, and Julian Rollocks, to manipulate them at will.

The SxmPolitico is a blog site, specifically set up, to dissect our local press.

When you read an article in The Today, or The Daily Herald, you can never take it for face value. You always have to ask yourself, what the motive is, and who is behind the hit. That is how sad our “press” has become.

When I was growing up, before Hilbert Haar, and the Afrikaners were even aware of SXM, there was actual healthy competition among the daily and weekly press. There was The Guardian, The Chronicle, The Clarion, Mr Lakes paper, but the Daily Herald came in like Walmart and shut all of the locals down. And they took over.

And it was done in such a subtle manner it seems, that the locals did not even notice, or make a peep, about why competition is needed in order for a healthy democracy to thrive.

So I will do online, what we have been unable to do onland..

Set up a site that dissects our local “press”.

Radio, TV, Newpapers, online papers.

What qualifies me?

What qualifies all of these foreigners, who we have allowed to create our destiny?

This will be a straight blog, taking stories straight from other sources, naming the sources and adding different perspectives.

THE DAILY HERALD AND THE TODAY WILL BE PUT UNDER A MICROSCOPE: SXMPOLITICO WILL TAKE NO PRISONERS!
