Fresh back from Christmas holidays 2017/2018, I share feedback from two sources and give commentary on the feedback received. The first is from Canada, a guy who likes my style talking about handling detractors – Victor Hafichuk and Path of Truth, ‘biblical’ female led marriage and conspiracy; the second from the Prime Minister of Samoa – the first and only official response from Tuila’epa since he evicted me from Samoa, and the release of the book he was so worried about – “Corruption in Samoa”. The truth is always evident to the humble. If you don’t have an agenda . . . “You can always tell!” Enjoy.
From A Canadian Reader
From the tipline (I intersperse my comments):
Hi Dennis.Just wanted to send you a quick note from New Brunswick, Canada to let you know how much I’ve been enjoying reading through various pages on your blog.
I started off reading some things about tpot [Code for Victor Hafichuk’s, The Path of Truth] and appreciated very much your way of dealing with Victor and Paul. I had been on their sight on occasion and found some good coherent material, (and some not so good) but then would be confronted with their nasty methods of dealing with their correspondents. I found your ability to separate emotion from the discussion and to not get sidetracked from the real issues by their bluster, to be a very rare thing indeed.
I then went on to read your back and forth with Keith…. ah… Ken that is, on his biblical marriage article and couldn’t stop laughing at your comments by the time I was halfway through. I had to quit reading it at that point, not because it wasn’t fun, but the article was just getting to ridiculous for me to keep interested. Honestly, you must have a great deal of patience to spend so much time conversing with someone who insists on seeing the opposite meaning of some rather plain scriptures so continuously. I think there are enough difficult passages in scripture without us taking the simple ones and making a mess of them too.I do get that you appreciate anyone who takes a matter and turns it every which way to examine the intent carefully, but there seem to be times where some lack just the smallest amount of common sense and create confusion where there never was any. ( I’m speaking of Ken’s idea of flipping the role of men/women from a biblical perspective)
All that being said though, I think your patient and humorous, yet bluntly honest responses are the best way, so thanks for modeling that for an internet generation that seems to have forgotten civility at times and where discourse always breaks down into personal insults.
I was also briefly on your conspiracy page (the colour coded page). I see that the moon landing is not colour coded meaning, I think, that you are not quite convinced to either side yet. I am also in that place, but leaning to the unbelieving side. Even though when I was a kid James Irwin came and stayed at my cousin’s place and spoke at their church. I met him then and those things always have an impact. Later though I could question why it was that these famous men were travelling far and wide visiting small rural churches to tell of their exploits. It’s very much the same methods of the politicians who want to convince the common people to believe what they’re saying, and we know how that always turns out. A friend of mine, Joseph Herrin, wrote a book of his research on the matter called Lunacy in the Age of Deception. It’s available for free at this link.If you get the time to read it I highly recommend it.
On another item in the list you had was the discussion on Sabbath/Saturday. I have also in my time studied and researched this, yet as God has led me on my journey I see this as more of what you would call a red herring or a spiritual distraction. It seems to me that by getting our attention on arguing over what physical day of the week the sabbath might be, we are now in no danger of discovering what the true sabbath really is. The new covenant is all about the fulfillment of the old. The old being the physical model for the spiritual reality or fulfillment of that thing that God designed and intended from the beginning. So for a new covenant understanding, Paul shows us that sabbath is ‘ceasing from our works’. Meaning we are no longer our own, but are now meant to be led of the Spirit in all our ways. It no longer has to do with what day of the week we get together or taking a day off work. That sabbath was once encoded in the o.t. law, that was fulfilled in Christ. It was the shadow of things to come. Physical rest once a week will not save anyone, nor does it bring us into the place God wants us. Spiritual observance of the sabbath, ceasing from our works and becoming completely obedient to his will, that is where we are to be headed.My two cents worth on that.
Anyways, I’m looking forward to more browsing on your blog. Just wanted to let you know I’ve been enjoying it.Thanks. [name withheld]
From The Samoan Government
The next feedback is from the Prime Minister of Samoa, Tuila’epa. A quick backgrounder to this feedback . . . I lived, worked and played in Samoa for seven of the last eight years. I went there on a holiday with my daughter, got caught up in a whole bunch of “God stuff”, met and befriended the Prime Minister, got ripped off, lied to and hated by the majority of Samoan society (including the Old Man Tuila’epa and his Mistress, the CEO of Tourism), was a total fish out of water, yet survived, coming to know and understand the Samoan people and culture extremely well. A large portion of my blogging is commentary on the Samoan culture from a Christian perspective.
In some ways my eviction at the hands of the Prime Minister in Q3 2016 (illegal as it was) was a blessing in disguise – sure I lost everything I owned, and am still hated by many today, but for those on the inside who know the real story, I have huge credibility and a depth of understanding that comes from having done the hard yards and having paid the price.
This feedback is the first formal or public comment from Tuila’epa in years (if not ever) relating to myself. It is a Press Release written by Katie Benton (a government employee in the Prime Minister’s office) edited and issued by Laveitiga Tuiletufuga then sent by Lave.

Therefore this is a formal Samoan Government release. To underscore this point it was actively distributed to News Media, Journalists and published on the Samoan Government’s Facebook page as the screenshot above shows.
Before I repeat this Press Release and comment specifically, I summarise my take, noting that:
- The Prime Minister of Samoa has initiated this Press Release structuring the questions, subject(s) and issuance;
- He used the Savali, the Samoan Government’s formal mouthpiece;
- It is essentially defensive, designed to mislead the people of Samoa (his prime constituency) in the nature and extent of his relationship with me and to attack me personally through a reduction in perceived credibility (ad hominem). In the vernacular this is “distancing himself” from me;
- It follows hard on the heels of my sustained negative and potentially damaging political exposure – understand that the PM is first and foremost a Samoan politician;
- It was issued at the end of a long period of my online silence, thus shows his deep concern at what I have said and at who has been digesting my work;
- The Press Release contains multiple deceptions, multiple omissions and deliberate factual errors, which I will reveal here shortly;
- This formal communication firmly endorses (if not proves) OLP’s core message that the Samoan Prime Minister Tuila’epa is a “crook” as well as mine, that he is a “coward”;
- You can always tell!
The original DOCX as issued by the Prime Minister’s Department entitled: GENERAL INTERVIEW WITH THE PRIME MINISTER.docx [Look at the Document Properties to see: Created 29/01/2018, 03:54:00, Katie.Bentin; Modified 29/01/2018, 03:55:00, Laveitiga Tuiletufuga & 3 Revisions]
ONE ON ONE WITH SAVALI NEWSPAPER
GENERAL INTERVIEW WITH THE PRIME MINISTER, HON. TUILAEPA LUPESOLIAI SAILELE MALIELEGAOI –
Savali: “You hardly ever comment on public criticisms against you and your government in the papers and in the face book.”
“I’m not President Trump who seems to have time to respond to every stupid Tom, Dick and Harry of the Social Media.
One of the things that grates with Samoans, even those who vote for Tuila’epa is his arrogance. He’s always had an ego, but as time has gone on with his iron-like hold on political power, this has gotten worse. A frequent exponent of ad hominem attacks, Tuila’epa resorts to the lowest form of human interaction in order to control a conversation and thus retain power. You can tell, though, always, for the truth has no need for violence. Insults to and about Trump, Bainimarama, and Palagi tourists are all par for the course for this man.
In any case, my media conference every week raises many important issues of wider interest that I have to respond to. It means, democracy is alive and well in Samoa.
Democracy exists in Samoan politics in name only. Tuila’epa has dictatorial power through the Samoan cultural norms. His consolidation of power (in the almost two decades he has been at the top) is well noted by others and is exemplary. This is why the PM attempts to get the message out that Samoa’s government is stable and democracy is alive and well in Samoa. He thinks that the more he can repeat this mantra, the more he can convince both himself and others that he is doing the right and honourable thing. The people know however. He performs the Samoan High Chief role, in and through a nominally democratic system. Democracy in name. Dictatorship in practice. You can always tell!
I value constructive criticisms, not the load of garbage that we get every day. Do you have any particular critic in mind?”
This statement, for those who understand the man, proves that this Press Release was initiated (as they say up there) “from the top”. You can always tell!
Savali: “Oh yes. There is Mr Maua Faleauto who always appears in the Papers with some kind of axe to grind.”
Now I don’t want to deny Maua his day of glory to be singled out by the PM, but I actually suspect that the PM has associated Maua with me and started with the lesser of two evils. Maua is and has been a vocal critic of the PM, particularly in regards to the Land Law changes that have followed the United Nations Agenda 21 conditionalities. While I suspect that it is I whom he fears the more, the PM attacks Maua personally from the outset:
“He is a member of my extended Fatialofa family – a branch of the family tree that is well known for criminal activities including murder, etc., etc., etc.
This is an extraordinary comment – insulting and a logical fallacy attempting to associate Maua with murderer. It’s also interesting that the PM raises this subject because OLP has accused the Prime Minister of direct involvement in the murder of a political dissident previously and more recently renewed mention of this. It is common that when one has a subject on one’s conscience, it raises its ugly head in unusual times and places – when a word slips out that’s on our mind/conscience we call it a “Freudian Slip”. This is also the way that people of like mind think. Connecting Maua with the taking of life is thought by the speaker with murder on his own conscience to take the heat off himself. For those outside of these power-games though, we can see what is likely happening. You can always tell!
I knew his grandparents well and also his father Leifi Faleauto. When I was at St Paul’s College in 1964 his grandparents invited me to a Sunday toona’i at their home not far from my school then. Now that I hold the title Fatialofa, I am therefore the Matai of the Faleauto Clan. Several years ago I presided over the family ceremony conferring the Faleauto Matai title to his brother who was then CEO of the National Bank of Samoa.”
Savali: “Did you talk to his brother then about Maua and his behaviour?”
Another patsy question, clearly orchestrated by the PM. You can always tell!
“I did but after I heard something about Maua being a loose cannon, I understood immediately.”
This is a disingenuous ad hominem attack, a transparent and cowardly attempt to present Maua as a loose cannon. The phrase “loose cannon” describes “an unpredictable or uncontrolled person who is liable to cause unintentional damage”. This is a false characterisation of Maua and an outright falsehood presented to attempt to mitigate serious political damage. From what I have seen the victim of this smarm by the PM is and has been for a very long time a totally dedicated detractor of the political manipulators (the most recent only being Tuila’epa). This entire concept, that Maua is “loose” is a political stunt from the spinmeister to present his side of the story as fact, with sound reasoning when most know instinctively that politicians across the globe speak with forked tongues, cannot be trusted and abuse the power entrusted to them. While not all are convinced that Tuila’epa is nothing more than a corrupt politician, and not everyone accepts Maua’s (and OLP’s) messages, a large number of Samoans are starting to wake up and smell the roses. The PM has good reason to be concerned. One tends to question whether this press release will achieve the PM’s goals though, for you can always tell!
Savali: “But Maua seemed to be quite intelligent.”
“Yeah – He is a qualified lawyer. Some fifteen years ago, he came to Samoa. Worked briefly with the Police as prosecutor for the police, during Papalii Lolenese’s term as Commissioner, then opened his private practice for a short time, then closed when his father died suddenly. I helped with the arrangements for the transfer of his father’s body to New Zealand, and I saw Maua off at the airport with the coffin. That’s the last time I saw him!”
Um? So? Remember that this is a formal government Press Release. Did the PM have cornflakes or taro chips for breakfast yesterday? When was the last time that Tuila’epa travelled to South Sydney and saw his HUGE mansion being looked after by his son? Understand that in Samoa, when the PM wants to speak to someone, all he has to do is put the word out and that will happen immediately – people will travel the length of the country to respond if they know he wants to see them. The reason that the PM hasn’t seen Maua since his father’s death will not be because Maua doesn’t want to see him, it will also be because the PM doesn’t want to see him! The other thing that needs to be understood, is that the PM has a propensity to telling all how he helps (or helped) people then using that for political control purposes in the future. It is the dark art of politics that many don’t realise – when you have something on somebody, you can use that in politics for leverage. This can be as simple as, “I helped Maua with [his father’s body/whatever] therefore he owes me loyalty” or as complex as outright blackmail from participating in a crime or some form of immorality. In the past this was often homosexuality. Currently it applies in Samoa to sexual immorality (everybody is doing it, so therefore nobody can throw the first stone) and in the areas of corruption, when something is covered up by the PM he has something on you to demand either loyalty or to control opposition to an acceptable level. The PM actually speaks this publicly too, threatening those he’s up against to comply or face exposure of their crimes. In some rare cases he will actually name the specific issues of embarrassment. The point though is that in Samoa we all know what’s what, and you can always tell.
Savali: “What about Mr D. Smith – The blogger. Do you know him?”
Another patsy question and you can tell from the length of his reply, that I’m the PM’s real concern. We always leave the most important subject to the end, don’t we? Sorry Maua, but you can always tell, eh?
“Yes – he came to my office over 5 years ago to request my help over a rent dispute with his landlord at Satapuala. I summoned the landlord to my office and settled the dispute the Samoan way.”
From the outset the PM misrepresents reality. Remember that the PM is worried about ‘something’ and is desperate to distance himself from ‘the Palagi who has gone rogue on him’. I went to the PM eight years ago and offered my services to him, STA and to Samoa at no cost. I identified myself as a Christian businessman, strategist, entrepreneur, author and investigator then gave him (and his Mistress Sonja Hunter and Deputy PM Misa Telefoni) multiple copies of my books (Internet UNMASKED!! and Lipstick on a Pig). I also offered him, her, them and all of Samoa my services AT NO CHARGE!! This is a giving and loving approach – contrary to this political mumbo jumbo that attempts to present himself as a great giver and helper! What the PM also fails to mention is that before this mentioned event, the PM opened our business in Satapuala personally and absolutely loved the ideas that I presented, was stunned at what we were doing and whole-heartedly supported us verbally, in writing and in deeds for a very long time following. There were MANY hours of healthy, happy engagement before and after this conflict situation, totally contrary to the egotistical, patronising, deceptive summary issued here for political gain. Boy would I love to see the whites of this coward’s eyes again! One look into them and this crook would shrivel and want to get swallowed into a hole – PM or no PM!
“Forgiveness! And to celebrate the occasion, I hosted dinner so that the Satapuala landlord and Smith would both forgive and forget. At 11:00 p.m. afterwards that night I came out to the dark car park for my transport home, and there was John Gamble waiting with his camera trying to catch me for an interview which I had scheduled for the following week. Meantime, Mr Smith did not attend the dinner. He left for New Zealand the same evening – The rest is history.”
So what’s the point of this section? Is the inference that I organised Johnny Gamble to ensnare the PM in the carpark and snuck off to New Zealand – not at all, I wish I had the power to organise such trickery! No, Three weeks after an assault from Eniko Taufete’e of Satapuala, punches to head, neck, shoulder and jaw, I fainted from head injuries and took the first flight to New Zealand for a CT scan. My staff attended, the PM knew and understood about my emergency medical needs and I was ready to board the Poly Blue flight when my staff called me and relayed the events with John Campbell (note the spelling here please writer, editor and PM) and the interview in the carpark of Moana Lisa that cemented in New Zealand’s minds that, for sure, Tuila’epa had helped himself to the missing Tsunami money.
Savali: “He said some nasty things in his facebook.”
Oh diddums, Savali. I actually don’t have a Facebook page! Samoa tends to think that the Internet is Facebook and visa versa. Yes, it’s that backward! Cellphone (with no credit) and Facebook is it!
“I can understand. Since I helped him he regularly visited my office with a request that I employed him to set up my facebook. He never understood that I never wanted publicity.”
OMG This is sooooo pathetic! For the record in Q1 2010 as New Zealand’s most prolific web developer, founder and owner of WDANZ, the Web Developers Association of New Zealand (a limited liability company) I advised, quoted for and received a cheque for $1,600.00 WST (I think about $900.00 NZD at the time) from the Prime Minister’s personal cheque account being for the design, development, domain name and hosting for the PM’s personal website www.tuilaepa.com. My wife took a photo of me holding up the cheque as it’s not every day a Palagi gets to design & develop a PM’s website and that you receive a cheque from the PM of a country. So to the lies . . . First I sold the PM a website, not a “Facebook” whatever that is. Secondly the PM paid for it, all $1,600.00 of it because he wanted it. Thirdly he knew exactly what it was because I had showed him NZ PM John Key’s website (on my computer at Camp Samoa in Aleisa East) personally. Fourthly Tuila’epa’s Press Secretary at the time, a guy who they called “the boor” Terry who was later arrested for sexual crimes said to us “The Prime Minister doesn’t need a website” and then refused to put content into it for the Prime Minister, thus the PM DID INDEED want to get his message(s) out but it was stymied by one of his staff. When you hear the ‘other side’ and not just the political spin from the Big Man, you can see how the PM attempts to deceive. The reason why is that at that time the PM and I were close, spent a lot of time together and trusted each other – as much as you can with a politician. It is clear that this Press Release is the PM attempting to distance himself from “the Palagi” now that things are getting hot. You can always tell eh?
Savali:“But you granted two/three media conferences a week.”
“Yes. Not on my own volition though. It’s because of your media’s constant pressure; and I realise that Government has all the information that the media needs for their news releases – which is bread and butter for the undernourished journalists and reporters. It’s that spiritual consideration only that I granted the interviews. I too was brought up in a similar environment of the have not.”
Savali:“So back on your face book – what happened?”
OMG, what egotistical drivel from the Prime Minister of a sovereign nation. Samoans across the world will be and quite rightly too cringing in shame at the fool who represents them on this stage. The PM conducts weekly events so that he has the limelight in the media. He patronisingly answers the questions that he wants asked and speaks about what he wants. There is no accountability, no opportunity for investigative journalism and ‘almost’ total control of the output. People across the nation are sick and tired of the voice, face and conduct of their leader. They vote for his party because it is required of them or because they think it is in their best interest to go with the flow. Remember that this is a Press Release engineered and conceptualised ‘from the top’. “I too was brought up in a similar environment of the have not” is the very phrase that almost all Samoans, including many from his own tribe and family cringe at. Trust me – they hate it when he talks like this!
“So as many times Mr Smith came to me on the subject of the face book – I redirected him to my CEOs to talk to them whether it was necessary. My two CEOs in the PM’s Ministry and the Tourism Ministry were quick to note that Mr Smith was an unlikeable character – especially when he casually used my name as official authority – for his own designs – He did not know that my CEOs were highly qualified technocrats at their profession and they became subjects of attacks by Mr Smith.”
The misrepresentations continue and increase in lack of integrity. Scripturally this is called sinning. In the West we call it lies or deception. In sales we call it putting the facts in a light that is favourable to yourself. In Samoa and politics it is called normal. The truth is that the PM and I spent many hours together – many. I’ve blogged and written about this many times. Our relationship started off as a curiosity for us both. It was an honour for me to spend time with the PM. I was the new kid on the block and the PM liked me and particularly my ideas. I was a breath of fresh air to him personally and to Samoa. He pumped me for what he could and good on him. I too used my association with him for personal benefit, more in the early stages but less as time went on. When he ripped us off over Sonja and STA I backed off heaps and then in 2015 initiated conflict by standing against his corruption. There is partial truth in there – I am most definitely unlikeable to many Samoans – I speak the truth, shoot straight and never give up. This grates with political people who largely wish to play diplomacy with God and matters of integrity. My “attacks” however are totally upon the PM’s conduct, not nearly so much on Sonja Hunter. She is no different from any woman who gives her body to any other man for personal gain. This is the role of any prostitute is it not? What I will call to account is a man who will have his way with his woman on the floor of the very office in which he shakes the hands of dignitaries and people from around the globe who come to Samoa in good faith, believing that they are dealing with a Christian country. To know previously where his hands and other body parts have been when sitting there speaking to his people about how God has appointed him to lead them; that Samoa is founded upon [the Christian] God and then spills distortion and lies to cover up, makes my blood boil. That said, he is dead right about the CEO (and there is only one that he is referring to – the CEO of Tourism) when he says she is “highly qualified technocrats at their profession”. She is an excellent bureaucrat – a safe pair of hands if ever there was one – loyal to him; will die for him (and more) and keeps the status quo, year after year – exactly what a PM wants from his CEOs. Sure maybe the country needs and cries out for innovation, creativity, risk, hope, legislative support, productivity and a level playing field which they will never get from bureaucrats, but we all know!
Savali:“We noted that on two occasions you had a face book established.”
“That’s the extent some bad people like Mr Smith had urgently wanted to create a face book without my knowledge.”
Hmmm . . . now we’re getting to the nitty gritty! PM calls Mr D. Smith “bad person” with a strongly worded implication. Nope! Mr Prime Minister, I am a straight-talking, no-nonsense man of God. I care – about Samoa and about you. This is the first time though that you have publically spoken about me ever, and it is negatively. You know the truth. You deceive openly so your days are numbered. God will not be mocked and He will judge you for this huge indiscretion – not me. You will find it wiser not to treat genuine men of God like you do everyone else, sir, especially if you want to sleep at night and live a long and healthy life.
Savali:“Have you had any more contacts with Mr Smith?”
“I don’t even know where the guy is now. My Minister of Samoa Lands Corporation informed me some time ago that Mr Smith was granted a lease hold on land under the SLC for a Tourism Development which he never implemented nor paid the lease, rental accrued. So the Minister evicted him from the land and deported him from Samoa for good.”
Savali: “Thank you Prime Minister.”
Oops! More outright lies and foolish ones as I will explain. I’ve blogged about this previously and have provided all the proof that anyone would need online.
First the PM knows exactly where I am, in New Zealand. He lies, outright! His staff provide him with printouts of many of my materials. He reads them – maybe not all of them and maybe not in a meaningful timeframe but read them he most certainly does!
Secondly the various Ministers of SLC over the years that the SWAP Foundation leased land from SLC were all puppets to Tuila’epa. Tui was (and I think still is) Chairman of the SLC Board. HE was the very person who instructed me personally to go to SLC to find land “closer to town” where they were “more educated” than the Satapuala people. He was the one who instructed the GM at the time Arisi Afua at SLC to find us land. He was the one who instructed her to give us the land that the Minister Tuisuga had at the time because the Minister had substantial rent arrears. Her objection/comment “But he’s a Minister!” when they identified this Aleisa East land with substantial arrears was brushed aside condescendingly by the PM himself. To believe that the PM as Chairman of SLC, King Kong in Samoa who had instructed me personally to seek land from SLC immediately after he had opened our business in Satapuala, gotten beaten up by the landlord, personally intervened to sort the problems out, advised us to go to the SLC, by-passed serious resistance from SLC staff who didn’t want us to get valuable land and then signed off on the lease to a Palagi of who he was personally helping AT BOARD LEVEL was not involved personally at every step of the way is preposterous stupidity. When the PM says that he was “advised” he lies outright. He was the initiator of the events in question. You can always tell the truth! He is attempting to distance himself from trouble and deceives his own people to do this. A Samoan trait BTW.
Thirdly, he attempts to paint me personally as someone who does not pay his bills and/or cannot be trusted. Nothing further from the truth! There is a long and slightly messy situation with the SWAP lease which I am very happy to explain in greater detail if anyone wants to know but the essence of this is that the SLC had elements within that resented the PM forcing them to lease to a foreigner. Yes, it was reverse racism and extreme. It took two years to get the lease signed. SLC changed the terms of the lease unilaterally forced our signatures under duress, ended up with facing an injunction from us in the Supreme Court and [this is the fact much more important than all these details ]- the Prime Minister knew EVERY bit of it all, from us, as it happened. Why? Because Tuila’epa was patron of the SWAP Foundation (a Samoa registered Charitable Trust) for two years and we informed him of EVERYTHING, ALL the time and he approved and facilitated it all! Hmmm. Makes you think eh? Tui, when you read this, know that you will be held to account by a higher authority than me and you know very well that your informant is a proven liar because he confessed to you in person in my presence. As you said to me personally, that you are happy to appear in court as my witness, “Because he confessed, didn’t he?” Tui, you have lied and misrepresented reality to the public in an official capacity on official government communications facility. I now hold you and all those whom you represent to account. This is a VERY serious situation for you, your family, your health – indeed all within the Samoan political jurisdiction.
But it gets worse . . . because this coward and crook who the Samoan people voted to manage them lies even more stupidly when he says, “So the Minister evicted him from the land and deported him from Samoa for good.”
I was not deported Tui and you know it. In 2016 you as Minister of Immigration declared me a “Prohibited Immigrant”. That means that you personally issued the order – this is not a deportation, it is an order prohibiting my presence in Samoa. Some months after you signed that order, while I was on a perfectly valid visitors permit, acknowledged by your own officials as such, and after having traveled between Samoa and American Samoa several time after you signed the PI order, your Immigration staff lied and tricked my wife and I, requiring me to VOLUNTARILY depart the country. I did so with the assistance of your people applying for permission to stay having married a Samoan citizen. Days prior to this your people had issued advice to all carriers informing them that I was a Prohibited Immigrant. You broke the law by not informing me of your signature on that document as you are required to do BY LAW. Your Immigration people broke the law by aiding and abetting my wife and I to apply for a family/marital permit as it is AGAINST THE LAW to do this.
You are the crook Mr Prime Minister. You are the coward and a common criminal. Your people are scared of you and broke the law to achieve your objective, note, YOUR objective to have me, as you say, removed “from Samoa for good”.
An effective dictator, a corrupt Samoan politician and issuer of a deliberately deceiving Press Release vs a man of God . . . I pity Gillian’s lot knowing what I know about you.
You can fool buy and bribe some of the people but for those who want to know the truth we don’t get fooled by your Press Releases, sir.
The Lord have mercy on you Mr Prime Minister, and those under your care.
You deceive. You lie. You are very worried – and now for very good reason.
You can always tell!
PS. The book “Palemia UNMASKED!! The War between Tuila’epa & OLP” is an inch away from publication. Watch this space.
