    This is a very sad day for the Cayman Islands. This is not the time to take a critical position of rejoicing at a man’s misfortune in his day of adversity.
    There are still those among us that are concerned for what happened to the Honorable Premier McKeeva Bush on yesterday morning.

    I as a Caymanian,It is with great concern as I witness this sad occurrence that

    is so harmful to the Cayman Islands and to Mr. Bush himself as he is a human being just like the rest of us. We are also concerned for the premier’s safety and his family as well.

    Unlike the naysayers who rejoice at the downfall of another. I do not partake in rejoicing at someone’s downfall whether they are wrong or right. God is the ultimate judge, and He will make the final decision.

    Even though the governor assured everyone that the take down of Michael Missick is unrelated to the arrest of our own Premier Honorable McKeeva Bush;As a Caymanian, versed in the UK’s dirty tactics and their
    subtle, and underground operations, I am most concerned for Mr. Bush’s safety and well being and so should every Caymanian as well.He is one of us regardless of what is going on in his life.

    We now have a constitution and a bill of rights enacted in 2012 (November) to be exact.
    Unlike many naive Caymanians, the liberals are unceasingly lobbying the UK, and the EU to push for gay rights for lesbians, homosexuals, transgenders, gay marriage, abortion and every corrupt lifestyle that can be conceived seeking legislation to accommodate it all birthed from their liberal agenda. The UK in turn is the home of liberalism of the basest sort and has been pressuring Mr. Bush to force his hand to install their liberal pipeline of sewage through the territories to meet the demands of special interest sleepers that live among the innocent simple minded people in the territories,such as our beloved isle the Cayman Islands.

    We have been far too trusting of these new comers into our island. Most of them are only using the Premier, and afterwards; hang him out to dry. He must be leery of who he trusts and befriends. Its time to stop doing favors for these people and begin to focus on our people.
    The public should keep a keen eye on things to ensue the safety of the Premier demanding answers from the Governor and the RCIP to ensure his continued safety as these investigations continue. We do not want any more surprises.
    The RCIP and the Governor must be aware that the Government is fully responsible for ensuring the safety of the Premier as a high profile individual a government official, and are mandated by the Caymanian people to ensure that the Premier and his family are “SAFE” at all times.
    We have taken note on the recent unprecedented announcement on this week of the unaccepted condition of the prison and the also recent
    complaint of the Commissioner of Police that the Central RCIP Lockup is also an unsafe place to retain individuals.

    Therefore the public will be keeping a watchful eye to see just how well the Premier will be accommodated while being held for questioning during this investigation from time to time.
    Therefore in my opinion a high ranking official under house arrest would be in a safer position than being held in any two of the government locations for remand accommodation.

    Mfr. Bush has done nothing different from other legislators in the past.
    However, his safety is of paramount importance. RCIP AND the governor must assure the public that the Honorable Premier is safe and has the security detail necessary to protect himself and his family.

    It is common knowledge that the Premier is a “Thorn” in the side of the UK governmentnwhere their liberal agenda for the territories is concerned therefore we are not too surprised at this sad news But lets be clear the UK is anxious to take down the premier as he
    has been the great pillar standing in the way of the UK and the EU spreading their liberal ideologies that promotes homosexuality, gay and lesbianism, transgenderism, gay marriage, abortion, dissolution of
    Christianity and a cult take over as well as abolishing traditional family values..The UK is now a liberal jungle that embraces such disgraceful and liberal ideologies which is against the Godly and conservative christian culture of the people of the Cayman Islands..

    The PPM leader Mr. Alden McLaughlin will never stand up to the UK on these serious issues facing our constitution and bill of rights when the UK decides to strike us with them. And when the sleepers in our midst
    invade us at midnight on these issues as we keep granting them work permits and Cayman Status they bring their liberal agenda with them to destroy our beloved Cayman Isle..
    Mr.Ezzard Miler is the other choice but he too will be challenged to answer what is his stance on these serious liberal issues facing this territory and how he would handle the UK on this, and will he?..

    If you understand political science as I and others do, you will indeed take careful note that we have now a new constitution and more importantly a ‘BILL OF RIGHTS.”

    Trust me there are liberal sleepers, lobbying the UK on their liberal agenda seeking to push it through. Moreover, the UK must get Bush out of the way in order to see this through. You have no idea just how tough Mr. McKeeva Bush is on these issues as he fights the UK on this front saving our children from being swallowed up by the destruction of this
    liberal agenda sweeping the nations in search of a license to condone an alternate lifestyle of everything we were taught not to believe and not to accept as a way of life.

    However, if Bush is to be replaced we will heavily vet those who seek to replace him.

    I invite the premier speak to the people, and also state his feelings and his intentions,
    There is a surprising amount of concern and sympathy for the Premier coming from even opponents who refuse to join the bandwagon of people rejoicing at the Premier’s mishap, and he is still supported despite the
    situation hanging over his head..People still love the premier and wish him and his family well whatever he decides to do it is his perogative.
    We love you Mr. Bush God bless you and we will continue to pray for you.
    Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible
    Rejoice NOT
    when thine enemy falleth, (into this mischief), and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth – When he meets with any thing that injures him; for God will not have thee to avenge thyself, or feel any disposition contrary to love; for if thou do, the Lord will be angry,
    and may turn away his wrath from him, and pour it out on thee.( YOU)

    This I believe to be the true sense of these verses: but we must return to the sixteenth, as that has been most sinfully misrepresented.
    For a just man falleth seven times – That is, say many, “the most righteous man in the world sins seven times a day on an average.
