The Long Road To Conakry

Conakry, Guinea Conakry (Accredited Times) – Accredited journalists are always searching for the next scoop.  We are desperate to report the EXCLUSIVE story and crush the competition. Due to the little-understood science of crowd dynamics, however, accredited journalists act more like flash mob participants. How otherwise do we explain the weird phenomenon of the same news stories appearing at the exact same time, with the same political slant?

What is the next big story? Ah, that is harder to predict; besides, we’ve not yet received our instructions. What we can say is that we need a change from:

(i) Disaster-porn – Hurricane Irma and Houston’s flooding were tremendously helpful for pushing the climate change narrative, but these stories are pretty much done. We’ve done our bit by connecting two wholly disparate things subliminally in the public minds, so that the next time disaster hits, the developed world will be ready to commit economic-suicide through agreeing to the elimination of all white-man-made CO2.

(ii) North Korea – things have quietened down in the accredited media now that even more sanctions have been approved. We have boldly stood up to North Korea’s greatest ally, China, issued stirring rhetoric, and then courageously retreated whilst vaguely keeping ‘all options on the table’ through inaction.

Brexit? Nah, done that. Worldwide Pandemic? We’re waiting till late 2017/ 2018 for that. Global financial collapse? That’s so 2008. And 2018/2019. No, we sense that the next big story will be the 2020 presidential elections in Guinea Conakra.

As someone who took a correspondence course on modern Guinea Conakry history, I sometimes forget that the average person lacks even a basic grasp of this country’s rich tapestry. If they can even locate it on a map, they will simply mumble about it being ‘only the 142nd biggest economy’ or ‘riddled with corruption.’ Such people are ignorant, however, of the tremendous contribution Guinea has made to the world. Did you know, for example, that this country has a type of bird and a dis-used British gold coin named after it? One of the most famous horse races in Great Britain today is called the ‘1000 Guineas’, although this shamefully refers to the number of slaves the winning horse-owner would receive from the king.

The word Guinea is also employed as a compliment to the Italian-American community to recognize that, in some ways, they are people of color.

Guinea also gave the world Ebola in 2013, thus helping with the United Nations’ population sustainability efforts.

We can also add that Islam is the majority religion of Guinea Conakry, with Muslims comprising around 85% of the 14.5 million population.  Guided by the charitable principles laid down by the Prophet Mohammed, Guinea has a long history of welcoming refugees. War-ravaged families from Sierra Leone and Liberia, for example, have all found shelter at Guinea’s warm and ample bosom. Guinea Conakry serves as a wonderful example to the Alt Right, who cruelly demand that refugees stay away and ‘stick to their own countries where they belong.’

Recent focus has been on Guinea’s role in modernizing business practices. Not only is Guinea a leading player in the awarding of no-bid contracts to select corporations, it especially welcomes accredited investors from lofty positions on the pyramid of oppression itself. Such benevolent investors are keen to help Guinea to exploit its huge mineral resources for the benefit on the people. Take Israeli miner, BSG Resources, for example, which is owned by billionaire Benny Steinmitz. In 2008, Guinea awarded Steinmitz’s BSGR the country’s huge Simandou Iron ore deposit for ‘a small fee’, just before the death of former president, Lansana Conté. Using all his experience and business acumen, Steinmitz was able to sell half the rights over Simandou to Brazilian mining giant Vale for $2.5 billion. This transaction was acclaimed as the ‘deal of the century’.

Shamefully, enemies of Guinea (including Rio Tinto, which used to own the deposit before it was “appropriated” and who had paid a much larger fee in 1997) took BSGR to international arbitration, alleging corruption and bribery. Legal counsel for BSGR asserted that:

There is no direct evidence of BSGR making payments to secure its rights…Guinea has set itself up for a fall.”

The article in the Daily Telegraph also reported:

BSGR denied paying bribes to Mamadie Touré, the fourth wife of President Conté, for helping gain access to Simandou. Mrs Touré, who fled to the US and was arrested by the FBI, “simply had no role in BSGR’s lawful granting of rights”, it said.

In their opening remarks, lawyers for the government of Guinea said there was “damning evidence of corruption”, including witness statements, FBI transcripts and documents detailing bribes, although some evidence could not be presented to the hearing because it was the result of ongoing investigations in Switzerland, France, the US and the UK.”

Allegations of corruption aside, Guinea Conakry clearly warrants watching. The Accredited Times proudly remains the undisputed thought-leader when it comes to this strategically-important West-African country. For this reason, you can be sure that we will be covering the key issues from all possible progressive angles.  As the clock turns slowly but surely towards 2020, our fearless readers will ensure that the presidential candidates provide honest answers to even the toughest questions.

The Accredited Times stands firmly behind people’s favourite, Abu Berete, a young unassuming man with a beautiful family who live together in the United States. Abu has a vision for his nation which brings hope to a people who dream of better days. Unlike many politicians today, Abu is not afraid of giving honest answers to some of the most difficult questions on the issues that matter. LGBTQ+ rights, for example, as well as the persecution of bronies by President Trump. This exchange between BLM and Abu is a clear illustration of the latter’s integrity:

Black Lives Matter: “Abu, one of my big concerns is Trump’s policy with respect to the LGBTQ+ community. In particular, as I’m sure you’re aware, Trump has repeatedly insulted and attacked so-called “bronies” (male fans of Hasbro’s “My Little Pony”, which was originally marketed to preteen girls). What’s your position on that and on the LGBTQ+ community more generally?”

Abu Berete: “War, they said bring nothing but distribution , while peace in the other hand they said bring nothing but prosperity, love, and many good things. We will all live happily with peace, the world can be a better place to live.

We agree with Abu and will be following his progress with fascination.

I’ve seen comments disappearing here, in the last 2 days. I give up on AT.

Going to take my bride Donald Trump on a tropical honeymoon.

Abu
Abu

Which comment disappeared? Mr. Putin, you are not going anywhere you are staying right here with us, we are the Progressive.
And by the way your name sounds like Vladimir Putin from Russia? Or are you one of those who have been manipulating people election on the computer right before I can say hacking everybody or what?

Vladmir Putin
Vladmir Putin

Do you want to win the Conarky Presidential election or not?
I’m very pleased that my bride Donald J Trump, won the US elections. I can never let my bride lose, so had to hack the elections, Facebook likes, and Google site ratings!

Mr Abu, will you marry me and be my bride? I have no experience with a Man-dingo, not sure what will happen on our honeymoon, but as far as the 2020 Guinea Conarky elections are concerned, you, my bride will be the next President!

Abu
Abu

Yes you are. And I want you to please Stand by my side in 2020 election please. I want to work with you and teach you everything you need to know.

Vladmir Putin

Putin learning from a Man-dingo? This site is totally fake.

Pastor Joel Olsteen says, you should give up the victim mentality.
In spite of all your help, AT site is going down, there are hardly any new viewers. MDB’s blue screen of death revolution hasn’t taken off yet.

Abu

Very soon, Abu’s campaign will take AT to next higher level. Just let me start my campaign.

Abu
Abu

And I will like to see you there first please Anon

Abu
Abu

Don’t you know that there so many different colors of people living in Guinea Conakry? Anon, are you telling me that you are not doing your homework to investigate Guinea Conakry very well? Look, if you step in Guinea Conakry you will be surprised. In fact you will take a vacation there very often. By the beach because we have so much of water.

Abu
Abu

The international community will not allow that to happen in this 21st century. Technology and science are making things clear. And it is about time for us to join together and spread the teachings of good morality.

Abu
Abu

And when you come to Guinea Conakry, I will first introduce you the United States embassy and I will make sure you get everything you want. Security will be all yours when ever you need them.

Wow, Abu’s answer to BLM’s question is the kind of detailed response that is so lacking in modern political discouse. A politician who can give you a straight answer? What a breath of fresh air!

It’s great to see that Guinea is already doing profitable business with accredited multinationals, but clearly they could be doing a lot more, given the state of their economy. Abu says that he is willing to hand over vast sums of Guinea’s oil and natural resources in no-bid contract to select accredited corporations, if the terms are right. I’m sure if they offered him a small personal sum for his efforts in putting together these deals, he wouldn’t say no either.

I sense that Guinea has a very lucrative future just over the horizon, under president Abu. I must reiterate that we are totally unbiased at the Accredited Times and don’t favor candidates. But in the case of the recent US election and the upcoming Guinea election, the opposition is so evil that we have to speak out.

Black Lives Matter

I seriously think Abu is a modern day Martin Luther King Jr. or Barack Hussein Obama.

Abu
Abu

Thank you BLM you have positive way of thinking.

Vladmir Putin
Vladmir Putin

Modern day Martin Luther King Jr? Just get your “I have a dream” speech out, before FBI mows you down.

Abu
Abu

Through action I shall accomplished my mission for Guinean people. I am just fulfilling former president Sekou Toure ‘s dreams, because he too had dream that one day Guinea Conakry will be developed and prosper and more than like Dubai. And that is what I am here to bring to the peoples of Guinea Conakry. Up to now people still remember and talking about that dream.

Black Lives Matter

This is so inspiring. Abu, you are bringing hope and change for all of Guinea. We’re changing the world!!!

Abu
Abu

Yes we definitely are

Abu
Abu

So are you telling me that your president is also gay because he mentioned his name too right?

Black Lives Matter

Wait, are you seriously hating on Martin Luther King Jr. So you want to take his statue in Washington, DC down now???

Abu
Abu

Let him talk BLM. He’s making us stronger

Abu
Abu

MDB, your very right ok, I think it is just Anon who is putting that dislike because I know that he doesn’t want to hear the true.

Can the AT please press Abu for a specific answer on how he plans to handle LGBTQ+ rights in Guiena Conakry? His answers are somewhat vague and our organization can not yet endorse him as a result. As an accredited media outlet, you need to do a better job of getting specific answers out of him.

Thank you, kindly.

MillionDollarBonus

His answer was VERY specific! Abu is pro-good things and anti-bad things! Just like progressives!

Abu
Abu

That’s correct.

Mr Abu, you have a nice and happy family, so why don’t you get on with your life? Why do you want to run for President?
No one is going to let you do things you want. See the UNanimous vote in the UN against N. Korea, that is like the chimps rubbing their asses. There can’t be an unanimous vote in a place with real, free-spirited humans, this voting tells you what the UN is really made of.

Do you think you can do good for your people? Instead of doing what Bill Gates, Al Gore, Deloitte, PwC, EY, Cap Gemini, and all the hidden eunuchs demand from you?

Abu
Abu

Through meditation, I found myself in all this. Otherwise, I am happy with my family that’s true. But the problem is what about the rest of the peoples in Guinea Conakry who can’t afford hospitals bill, children school fees, because there’s no employment in the country. And I every time I talk to them on the phone, every body is asking for money and i can’t solve everybody’s problem. Then one day I meditating and i said why can’t I run for president because everybody knows that we shouldn’t have to suffer like that because we have everything in natural resources to develop the country. And yes I want to do good for my people in Guinea Conakry. And I want the whole world to benefit from our developments. I am not here to create any problems what so ever. Or I would’vebeen running for president.

Abu
Abu

Which answer are you talking about please?

Are you guys going to cover the story of the birth of Trump’s new grandchild today?

CNN posted their first ever Trump puff piece regarding the birth. These were daily stories during the Obama days.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/12/politics/lara-eric-trump-child/index.html

Accredited journalist Jake Tapper posted a tweet congratulating the family, and the replies from his followers are epic:

No body is hidden anything it is just Anon who want to make fun of me. Just a joke, but I am 33 right now.

Abu

Fake news

Abu
Abu

How do you mean? Of course if one says a fake news, why can’t we call it fake news, is saying fake news by me or someone is now a crime Mr. ANON please answer me now? ??

Abu
Abu

I won. Positive one to negative one against Mr.Anon.

Black Lives Matter

Agreed — I vote for Abu.

Abu, is there any way that Americans can vote in the Guinea Presidential election, even if we’re not residents of Guinea? I’d really like to vote. Since non-U.S. citizens generally can vote in U.S. elections, I’d assume it’s the same rule in Guinea, but I just wanted to be sure.

Abu
Abu

If the United States can allow emigrants to vote, then why wouldn’t Guinea? Of course I will let that happen in Guinea if you’re legally present in Guinea Conakry during the election.

Abu
Abu

Why wouldn’t you be legal? Of course we need about everybody who vote, not just a random person just walking the station and vote, can’t you identify yourself?

Abu
Abu

We need to know about everybody who vote

Abu
Abu

And that is why most people like you need to apologize to Clinton.

Finally….with the election of Abu…Socialism will will be done correctly and people will live happy, peaceful, and prosperous lives……

Abu

That is my goal

Abu
Abu

You have done very well Pbire. Please keep informing the people, most people don’t know.
I am ready for change in Guinea Conakry. We can not be sitting on top of all those natural resources and AT will sit and see the population suffer in Guinea Conakry all the time. Progressive need to steps in for development, education, human rights, and all the good things come to the peoples in Guinea Conakry. Thanks P.

“I am the president for the party created in 2009 . I have all the members and supporters. It’s very getting serious now because I am not the only one doing it it is everyone in the party. But the president have risen the fee to $1million US DOLLAR. From $10 -20 thousands dollars. Because he doesn’t want to be challenged by any one over his 3rd terms. And now I need to rise about $5millions dollars. To run my campaign.”
I hope that many readers here will contribute to your campaign…

Abu
Abu

Good memory. I want everyone to trust me on this and please work with me to overcome this challenge because it will be little tuff with all the corruption money that president have to spend just to try and win the election again.
I need help from everybody. The party members are waiting for me to come and start the campaign but no one has given me nothing and I have to spend all my savings and traveling and all the process just to get the document because the president has ordered them not to issue a new political party to anyone just not to be challenged. But I was able to work with great citizens of Guinea Conakry who want change and better life for our people. And they understand my dreams for our people and that is why they agreed to nominate me as a president of the party and everything was done correctly without any corruption because I everybody have a right to do that in Guinea Conakry. I’m ready for this people .

Abu
Abu

No sir. I live most of my life in the United States.

Abu
Abu

Anon is at it again

Abu
Abu

Pbire. You have done very well. And thank you. In fact, people have now starting to believe ne because of how you guys are doing well. Keep up the good work. I showed to some good people, and I like it. Therefore, I will like for world to please join me and thanks once again Accredited Times .

Abu
Abu

Ok If I am fake, so why there are so many fake news every where, and why have you refuse to tell the American people when Trump’s supporters will apologize to Clinton?

Abu
Abu

You see, another fake news by Mr. Anon again.

Abu
Abu

With my subconscious, I am always on right track Mr. Anon. I can see very clearly, I don’t know if you know what I mean? I have done my homework.

Abu
Abu

I will just take a deep breath. And it will go away

Abu
Abu

I mean, I am not blind like you to see the reality sir. Please I don’t want to start my yoga graduation class all over again.

Abu
Abu

And that’s the kind of education we need in our modern society because people are getting confused everyday. Therefore people who practice mindfulness, are the peaceful people in our society today. And there will no war among ourselves too if everybody would’ve go to yoga class and practice mindfulness.

Abu
Abu

Funny

Abu
Abu

There’s no suffering if you think positive, you get positive results. And if you think negative, you get negative results. I’m sure you have heard that already. “the secret”. Anon gaining awakening is not suffering it is to become healthy and happy. During the millions of years ago, that was how how ancestors used to do to heal themselves naturally. But now, In our modern world’s there are hospitals and sickness killing people everywhere for some reason. So what if I tell you that I have not step in the hospital for the past 12 years? And I am still breathing fully all the time the same air sick people are breathing. I don’t even know why I pay for Medicare.

Abu
Abu

This is the very first time Mr. Anon have agreed with me on one thing. Congratulate me!

Abu
Abu

Let’s talk about Guinea Conakry, not China.
