Sex, lies and audiotape; Warner continues charge on alleged ‘Cougar in Chief’

So much for the People’s Partnership’s attack on PNM leader Dr Keith Rowley for wining on a teenager.

There is always the likelihood of heavy hypocrisy and immense irony when Chaguanas West MP and former FIFA money transfer extraordinaire Jack Warner is lecturing about wrongdoing. But, not for the first time in the past fortnight, it is his former Cabinet colleagues that squirmed most uncomfortably.

In the latest press gathering of Warner’s long farewell tour, the former Minister of National Security, Works, Transport and Phone Taping revealed a fresh tale of sex, bribes, kickbacks, extortion and fraud.

Naturally, nobody heard anything said after the “sex” part.

Thus far, the title-loving Prime Minister SC has refused to claim the additional portfolio of “Cougar in Chief.” But it will take years before the image of a grinning Glenn Ramdharsingh allegedly telling his driver Jit Hardeen, two years ago at approximately 2.30 am, that: “we got her high so Kristyan can fix up.”

At the time, Kamla Persad-Bissessar was 61. Kristyan Gokool was 33. But don’t expect rabid PP supporters like P*****p to demand to see birth papers in this scenario.

Of course, the only “evidence” thus far is a former FIFA vice president who couldn’t pick Truth out if it was the only member of a police line-up, a SRP driver who changes his version of events according to who is recording him and the reported discovery of what appeared to be marijuana on a window sill rather than in someone’s hand or purse.

And what was the weed doing outside the window anyway? Thankfully, there were no reported sightings of a soucouyant in south Trinidad.

Mr Live Wire must stress that Tanty Kamla could be absolutely innocent of all the innuendos. The problem is when you lead Cabinet ministers allegedly prone to nibbling nipples, touching up tot tots, pulling pokemons, molesting maids and mauling mistresses, it is inevitable that people will one day wonder: What is your vice exactly, PM?

Whatever the extent of Tanty Kamla’s generosity to her young, male neighbour, one should recognise that no crime was committed by his alleged presence. Even if he did take the entire night to deliver his cup of sugar.

In fact, after an era when Justice Minister Herbert Volney spearheaded Section 34 and National Security Minister Warner was pursued by the FBI, the allegedly self-titled “assistant to the Prime Minister’s husband” might have been the only person living up to his job title.

Allegedly, of course. Mr Live Wire has no intention of joining Warner in court.

It is the other non-salacious stuff that needs urgent investigation.

Crooked policemen? An inefficient Integrity Commission? Politicians enriching themselves on the public purse? Ministers who do nothing but show up to gallery in Parliament? Corrupt contractors…

Wait a minute. Did Warner really tell us anything we didn’t know already? Or was that the best repackaging of old food stuff since mammy’s bread pudding?

Warner was at pains to stress his noble intentions today at the press conference, which was held at the Normandie Hotel and not the Centre of Excellence that he allegedly stole from CONCACAF.

“I didn’t come here to demolish Kamla,” he said, while trying to demolish Kamla.

His patriotic fervour.

“I have an obligation to expose this country to who Kamla Persad-Bissessar is,” he said, two years after recording her supposed misdeeds.

And his trustworthiness.

“Sometimes you have to crush grapes to make wine,” said Warner, after playing a recording of Hardeen expressing fear for his life and begging to be left out of the affair.

The FBI has a great recipe for wine too. Although, granted, it might not be as good as Kristyan’s.

  1. Hmmm lost for words Lasana yuh not easy

  2. Is this bacchanal enhancing Mr Jack Warner’s life? All this mauve langue will not save him from the being prosecuted in the American Courts. So Mr Warner stop your foolishness. The pit you dig for someone you will fall into it. God is watching and one day we will all stand before God to give an account for what we have done in the flesh. You politicians be very aware . ” To whom much is given much is required.”

  3. ‘the only person doing their job is Krisytan’ lol

  4. I just heard that there are lots of Egyptians in the UNC, because there a lot of them in deNILEal.

  5. When Vernella Allen Toppin was insulting Dr Rowley’s Mother in the nastiest way she didn’t find that degrading or insulting to all Women but now the shoe on the other foot it’s a different story. That pile coming from Cougar in Chief which by the way was the best nick name so far. Boss Lasana.

  6. he has been castrated or renered impotent

  7. They’ve been attacking him since he became leader of the COP. Why do you think he keeps his tail between his legs?

  8. this is a straight fight between pnm and unc,cop is in its dying throes ,at this he is ,praks is looking for survival or may be leader of the opposition,he will have to fight motor mouth coney lal suraj who will attack him relentlessly ,their kind of politics is doomed

  9. To your question about feeling attacked or insulted… Lasana, uhhh…come again? Hell no! And…. as a matter of fact, i don’t even listen to any of JaWa’s revelations…because it’s really all over but the shouting now for me…and JaWa could say what he want, I just waiting for him to make a real jail (although I fear North American jails are not all that real from what I hear…but perhaps for JaWa they will be real enough), this time not just a two days! And for the rest of them – formerly known as JaWa’s cohorts, I am priming my voting finger for September 7th…and hope enough people think like me that the time for drama is over, the real work of nation re-building has to begin and it starts with a new administration in the seat of government…not this farcical PPG.

  10. Albert Edwards, Praks spoke out. He asked JW to go to the US and facce his charges. LOL

  11. Better yet..does he have 13 members?

  12. I know that, you know that, we all know that
    except Prakash of-course! He wants 13 seats? does he have 13 candidates?

  13. Mel Lissa for all intents and purposes the cop is dead,it is leaderless and has not commented on the rambling within the government

  14. There was some haggling going on for months about exchanging St Joseph [UNC] for Tunapuna [COP]

  15. there will be some horse trading,very robust ,some will get cold feet,the wave of euphoria that erupted with their accession to powerhas all but evaporated

  16. That’s a good question Judy-ann

  17. I saw that Albert but it’s the same with Dookeran Aneka.. he isn’t running again so it’s left to be seen which Party will replace them

  18. Will there be any COP candidates?

  19. but isn’t she COP? so what will she be replaced with a COP or UNC candidate?

  20. carol seepersad bachan is in doubt

  21. She’ll remind him when she catches a break
    if she ever does..

  22. Who has to tell Powers that he has to announce the election officially so that we can have a nomination date and see all candidates? It looks like KPM but the way she is going, she might forget.

  23. And the forum was cancelled this week

  24. Haha! Albert you on d ball there

  25. Their application process closes at the end of the month

  26. this should play in the next unc forum

  27. we already have one canidate saying that there are serious doubts on her running again

  28. Well he did say he’s only just begun and who eh dead badly wounded

  29. But allyuh notice something…the allegation pool now start to widen…Jack calling glenn name now, and i realise he eh sayign a ting bout suruj, &&, or any others in the cabal..YET.

  30. Candidates? They don’t have time for that right now

  31. jack is on the attack,the extradition papers have not arrived as yet,he has a point ,why the haste to send him to the usa

  32. And after the exposes they forgot everything else! Any word on anyof their candidates?

  33. Since Jack’s indictment they forget Keith!

  34. go back into the archives on trevor sudama ,piece on how her application to be a member of the unc,and panday’s admonishment of her and a picture can be pieced together

  35. Notice that they don’t have time for KR any more? Hands too full!

  36. well i guess i if panday was the lion, she is the lioness :/

  37. the role of the victim,this is in the prepared script by her handlers,damage control,is being played out here,try and court the press throw oil ontroubled waters.jack has dealth her several mortal blows,the slope is slippery down hill

  38. Why would I feel as if Jack attacked and/or insulted me? I didn’t send for Krystian who was ready and waiting at the Carlton Savannah at 2am in the moring while I was allegedly high!

  39. I note her speech wasn’t vetted properly.
    She referred to herself as a “lioness” apparently…
    The correct term is “cougar”, Tanty Kams! 🙂

  40. Enjoyed this! Given that she claims to have been blackmailed and did not give in, this is tantamount to saying that there is something to blackmail me for. She certainly didn’t send the TTPS for the blackmailer. Problem with them is that after loudly talking about how delusional JW is , they quietly confirm a few days later that the information he gave was true. In two days we may have the confirmation of this story! Lol!

  41. Uh, i was more or less insulted by the fact that she would insinuate that this attack on her is an attack against all women. THAT is rubbish. Her ineptitude as a leader is HER responsibility, not mine.

  42. no one admits the truth ,it is part of our culture,expressed denials ,the voice on the tape is sounding similar,but there is soft wear which can verify or authenticate the voice of the young man.a serious breach of security and protocol took place.it seems people under estimated warner’s cunning not knowing he would keep records ,no sympathy for them.

  43. Tanty might as well just own the thing now. Not like rumours about her nocturnal behaviour is anything new.

  44. nah nah nah Richard Zen O’Brien…dah kinda behaviour is not no Aunty behaviour….is Tanty now

  45. Lol @ ‘Tanty’..no more ‘Aunty’?

  46. Tanty on her own here yes…..is more like “shocked” and “ashamed” we feeling

  47. Roll call: Any other women feel “attacked” or “insulted” by Jack Warner’s revelations? Or is Tanty Kamla taking the “Mother of the Nation” thing too far?

  48. Leave the happy doggie out of this! 🙂

  49. Lasana the pic couldn’t be a some kind of subliminal reference to doggystyle? O geeeeeed shouldn’t have gone there!

  50. I thought a pic of a winking Tanty Kams as the cover photo might be overkill and too much for some people’s constitutions. Lol.
    So I gave the happy doggie a go. 🙂

  51. Nice pic, Lasana should get the 2015 LOL photo award.

  52. i still cannot get over the pic of the dog! lol

  53. Lol. If we don’t study what jack saying murders will stop or get solved?

  54. And will continue with or without Jack, what’s your point????

  55. Things that make you go, no Lord say it ain’t so! All this coming out if true it’s really sad, PM shld have call elections sooner.

  56. ..while the fixation with Jack continues..murders continue unabated…

  57. Wait until Alyuh see the video that will be busing soon ent. Gordon Pierre. Them really good yes.

  58. Remember the Republicans who went after Clinton? Every one of them were having affairs.

  59. we need to see the immoral individuals whom we placed our trust in

  60. And how exactly does viewing a sex tape if there is one help us get rid of them?! Steups

  61. Nicole Ulerie these people came to office claiming they were clean,new faces in town,what is the result,our credibility as a people is questioned international and regionally,emailgate we are now having a remake of prison gate this week,the same attorneys who benefited handsomely are back in business again,the same sex and lies .no ease up

  62. Smh. Look whe Albert Edwards gone!!! I doubt I EVER wanna see a sex tape wit Kamla!! Barf!!!

  63. trini version of sex ,lies and deception,the gloves are off where is the sex tape,every one in show business does one ,is there any one in cyberspace

  64. ‘The problem is when you lead cabinet ministers prone to nibbling nipples!’………lol you really need to read the rest! Relevant and witty!

  65. Lasana Liburd where you found that dog pic?

  66. And Cadiz on news lambasting Warner for unethical behaviour. They all jokey oui. Talk about plenty coal pots calling kettles black. It would be funny if it wasn’t so disgusting. But i love the term “Cougar in Chief”

  67. Dr Keith Rowley did not wine on any one, always remember that, but JACK WARNER now wining on them everyday.

  68. Well no lawyer letters yet. Methinks there is some truth somewhere lurking behind, between or next to the lies.

  69. Mel, get back to serious business he.

  70. He said it right after saying sorry to Hardeen, Nicole. And then he referred to himself, possibly as an afterthought.

  71. aye…doh knock the slow hand eh…

  72. Yes..not the kind that takes all night to deliver!

  73. true. but natural sugar is OK in small amounts ….the secret is in the dosage and frequency.

  74. But too much sugar eh so good for the aged

  75. Oh ho…for a second I was concerned eh….

  76. Sorry Jamela I could never be talking about you 🙂

  77. That dogs face keeps getting me LOL

  78. As a golden oldie Mel, I object and I might accuse you of ageism eh…wait till yuh get old lol

  79. I thought that was how you made wine? Didn’t know it was a sometime kinda thing lol hmmm

  80. William Ross…Lasana is so wrong.
    Delivering that particular sugar to that particular customer is a crime yes

  81. Well is himself he was describing as grapes inno Lasana

  82. Warner still have grapes? At his age?

  83. Lol. Hope Warner doesn’t mind too much when it is his grapes getting crushed…

  84. Lol. I have to say it doesn’t look like Jack served up anything new. Although truth be told what he served up so far is more than enough for me. I can’t erase that mental picture of the PM and the young handsome Kristyan. Seriously though why in hell would Glen say …”we got her high. ..tell Kristyan he could fix up”…seriously if anybody needed the drugs I would think Kristyan needed it more than Kams!

  85. “The FBI have a great recipe for wine too.” Dunno what yuh talking bout nah

  86. Wow, ‘No crime committed.. even if he did take the entire night to deliver his cup of sugar!

  87. Ohgadoeee…Mr. Live Wire?? ah tink yuh go be goin Jack in court!!!

  88. And you letting the women’s world cup languish because of this! It was a so so game last night I felt for Columbia it was a USA bombing run after run after run. The red card to the goalie was their demise bringing them down to 10 men! making them out manned! Sitting there in the stands surrounded by all those Columbian fans had me enthralled, even in defeat they stood strong with their team!

  89. Probably took a wrong turn and deliver the sugar to the wrong address…… yuh know how google is lol

  90. LOL…. Trinidad is sweet for days

  91. Well it was said that he left the next day! That was an awful lot of sugar!

  92. LoL – The allegedly self-titled “assistant to the Prime Minister’s husband” might have been the only person living up to his job title.

  93. And imagine it probably have more dirty laundry to come geez

  94. What a great read witty and relevant .

  95. Anyway lasana just to be clear and before we start talking patents lol that line “Fifa money transfer extraordinaire Jack Warner” will be utilized in the future on a regular basis by yours truly lol

  96. This is horrible lol lol …Ah luv it lol

  97. Oh gosh. Dare I read this??I feel like a voyeur Lasana. What de hell…here goes!!

  98. the vice cyar done!
    #JackWarner playing the tunes like a bozz. is strictly dubplates in this session #45ShopLock

  99. Where you get dat picture from,…

  100. The real victim here is Gregory, now that all eyes are on Kristyan and who’s going in and out of Kamla’s house Poor Gregory has to now fix her up himself.

    That’s like a cruel prison sentence!

  101. hahaha!! Sana you is the greatest !! more stories to come keep your writing pen warm plenty tot tot pulling and mistress mauling to come!! lol

  102. Well they didn’t lie about that Arlene..he was the assistant indeed!

  103. In light of recent revelations it may not be each other’s backs they wete “scratching” nah!

  104. Assistant to the husband eh… I weak!

  105. Vernal a pure case of “I scratch your back if you scratch mine” clearly KPB decided she didn’t need to scratch his anymore..so his claws are out.

  106. “Wait a minute. Did Warner really tell us anything we didn’t know already? Or was that the best repackaging of old food stuff since mammy’s bread pudding?”
    Uh huh

  107. I screamed while reading this. oh my goodness. LMAO

  108. in my Machel Montano voice “look trouble now”

  109. “I have an obligation to expose this country to who Kamla Persad-Bissessar is,” he said, two years after recording her supposed misdeeds.”

    Amazing how Jack only recognized this obligation after Kamla refused to protect him any further from the federal justice system.

  110. I wanted to read more…but I guess not tonight LMAO

  111. I know this is just macco talk, eh. And I know Liburd could find he ass in jail fuh some ah dis stuff. Buh once is he making the jail, I reading!

  112. “the only “evidence” thus far is a former FIFA vice president who couldn’t pick Truth out if it was the only member of a police line-up, a SRP driver who changes his version of events according to who is recording him…”
    Indeed…does Jack even know how to spell “truth”? So…unfortunately I have to ask…(and I mean unfortunately for the whole of T&T!) why should we start believing Jack now? Is it because we want to see him accomplish the demolition of KPB…? I am not sure I want him to accomplish anything but the booking of a direct flight to FBI hq…if that is possible…and it’s not that I don’t want KPB to go out of office, but this all feels like smoke & mirrors…desperation is the name of the game with PPG, Jack and all their supporters…and I am beyond tired of their antics and games…it is true politics has never been a clean game, but these people make muddy water look so clean right now.

  113. If this were the Feds making the case everyone and dey macco neighbor would believe it. We have contracts, we have million dollar property purchases, we have recorded testimony and we have inconsistent statements. If there isn’t a crime somewhere in there then let’s make the DPP and COP jobs non-salaried.
