UPDATE: Joseph Isaac takes oath as government minister; says history will absolve him

Isaac taking the oath of office

Member of Parliament for Roseau Central, Joseph Isaac, who recently resigned from the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) has been sworn in as a government minister.

He was sworn in at the State House by President Charles Savarin.

Isaac took an Oath of Allegiance to Dominica, an Oath of Office and an Oath of Secrecy.

He was then given his instrument of appointment by the President.

Isaac is now officially Minister for the Environment, Climate Resilience, Disaster Management and Urban Renewal.

He thanked Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit for inviting him to the Cabinet, saying he places his trust and confidence in him.

He said the portfolio is challenging but is committed “to work hard to achieve the goals and vision as outlined by the Prime Minister to become the first climate resilient country in the world.”

“I think this is commendable and visionary,” Isaac stated.

He also expressed his admiration for Skerrit.

“I would also like to tell the world that even in the political arena you may have opponents but even when you are a person’s opponent and you admire that person, you have to show the respect. I admire the Prime Minister,” he gushed.

Isaac said he was offering his talents and skills “for the love of country.”

“At the time when I said that, I remember a lot of people said that I didn’t consult but that in and of itself is a consultation by saying that we should all of us work together and offer our services to rebuild our country after a major, devastating hurricane,” he stated. “No one had problems with that statement in parliament. No one had problems with that statement in the media, no one had a problem with it when I spoke about it in the bars …but after I made a decision, after consultation, after a long time, some people have a problem with it.”

Isaac said he remains committed to the vision of rebuilding Dominica.

“That is why I accepted the PM’s offer to work with the government for the betterment of Dominica,” he stated. “I hold no malice. It’s all about love for country and love for people. This is one of the Prime Minister’s strength I think will go down as his legacy, his love for people. I admire that.”

He also stated that history will absolve him.

“For those who can’t see the vision, I would like to say to them it’s okay, you can’t see it yet, but according to Fidel Castro, history will absolve me,” he said.

    This just all comical. The people of Roseau who voted unanimously for you were all betrayed. Isaac you are a snake and a coward.You took the easy road to riches and luxury. But God is not a police. You most likely were just as greedy and selfish as your are now when you first entered the political arena. Your face alone says it all.

    During Joseph Isaac’s speech, he thanked his Mom, the Prime Minister, Hon. Robbie Tonge and all his well wishers. I noticed, he did not thank Mrs. Irene John, Mayor of Roseau, neither did he thanked her team. This was not an oversight, it was deliberate. You see, had he mentioned her , he would have had to mention Danny Lugay, a member of the UWP, who is on her team, that is, the Roseau Town Council.

  3. Yours is not the tears of joy Isaac, that is what call crocodile tears, the tears of a hypocrite. You know what are benefits at the moment; a few pennies  more  now in your pocket until election!  Nevertheless, you have become one of the most unlikely politician in the country to be reelected.

    Except for some miracle your former constituency will not vote for you: Roosevelt knows that, so he hope to run you in some constituency where he hope to cast someone like Drigo aside, so you might become a candidate perhaps in Castle Bruce.

    Fact is nobody is going to trust you, because you are toxic!  Ask the man Savarin on who’s shoulders you are crying, after he damage Dominica  1979 nobody would have him run in any constituency, because  wonted him to represent them, so he became fit only to be appointed as a puppet to this day.

    Remember Julius Timothy; ask yourself where is he today? Ask Roosevelt why he dumped my cousin Gloria Dods-Shillingford: When will it be you?

This level of politics in Dominica is stained and nasty and corrupt and this profession has go himself embedded in this political; cesspit. He is gonna be stained for a long time.

    IRONY is the very same reason he left UWP is clearly visible in their slanderous responses towards him… the proof is in the pudding!

    If they had positive responses and wished him well then maybe you could say he was wrong about them but the facts are in they’re doing the same exact thing that caused him to leave!

      “……..positive responses and wished him well ……?” Are you mad, or as your name indicates UDOHREADYET.
      Issac has placed himself in this situation, it is of his own making. It appears like many other politicians politics is an expensive venture and unfortunately they get low financial resources. So Issac jumped ship because there is more money flowing there, and “Maybe” majority of it is coming from states funds? I am only asking, anyone knows?
      So my fried remain in your Tribal Politics, go clean up the Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol and also clean up your corrupt Labour government.

    Judas! For a few dollars you betray your country and your voters. That is exactly was wrong with Dominica.

  8. My little take
    April 14, 2018

    It’s an unholy union that is based on greed and power to buy people as one would expect in anything Skerrit is involved in. It’s a union without love, where one doesn’t trust the other. Skerrit has the money to bribe and poor old Joseph Isaac who always seems hungry for money, just couldn’t resist the offer just like Judas Iscariot could not refuse the 30 pieces of silver. That’s why I like Lennox Linton because he cannot be bought and is in for love for country . That’s why Dominica will go nowhere as long as Roosevelt is pm. It’s a fact known by Joseph Isaac as well as every member of the DLP cabal. They will all pretend but they all know that, and you too that’s reading my blog know that because you have 18 years to look back to and except for a few in the cabal the majority of you would agree that you are far, far, far worse of today, than you were 40, 30, or 18 years ago and it’s not because of Maria but because of bad governance

    This is a new era in D/can politics. Here we have to defectors fro former opposition groups joined at the Hipdealing with oath taking LMAO & really ,really LOUD. These new twins born nearly 30 yrs apart at that time not even the best doctors would tackle such a case.In the photos Issac is surrounded by family new found crooked friends the very one who called him out on his lack of talent to run /manage a simple industry putting La part into an oven. Now he is to take care of our environment etc. Visible in the photo is compere opportunist( with sunglasses) Which side is HUNTER on. Is he the advisior Issacs been mentioning? I certainly think his best interest was not taken into consideration. I would not use Hunter to advise me on how to swat a fly or mosquito.Just as the few holocust survivors trying their best to have the world to remember their ordeal and that it is never allowed to happen again, so must crooks like Joseph Issac must never be allowed to contest ever

    What is it that these two dishonourable people have in common? The answer is, after they have both benefited from their respective political parties (UWP and Freedom)they both switch (for a few pennies or pieces of silver) at the dark of night to the corrupt Labour Party Government and its questionable leader…..not fit to be a Prime Minister. Betrayal is a crime and a sin, Go ask Judas>

  13. April 14, 2018

    You guys did not get the picture Isaccs was crying for the Parrots; that is patriotic, because he knows he will soon join them and become a thing of the past. It’s little wonder that persons have stated and i quote “all politicians are the same“ a statement i have never subscribed to; but “birds of a feather flock together“ sounds more reasonable and that i can agree with.

    What do you admire about the PM, mr isaac?
    His lack of respect for the constitution?
    His inability to complete projects?
    His lying tongue?
    His refusal to give electoral reform?
    His oversized cabinet, that just got oversizer? Most industries try being lean, avoid waste. Not in Dominica government.
    His win by any decietful means necessary legacy?
    His lack of respect for the leader of the opposition, and opposition party in general?
    He was not willing to work with you until you left UWP which you will never be absolved of, not in past, present or future. I do not admire Skerrit. Skerrit is no good for Dominica, Dominica can do alot better. Skerrit must get out of government. After 20 years he has proven that he is not able to make Dominica great. Vote Skerrit out Dominica.
    God bless Dominica.

    Just as it has always been, one person speaks a word or a phrase and the rest of the crowd become an echo because they do not have a mind to think for themselves.

    How can you people compare the deed of Judas Iscariot with that of Mr. Joseph Isaac? There is no comparison. Mr. Isaac is a member of Parliament, with a salary, the difference now, is that he has a special role there. Judas was a failure.

    Jesus was on a Mission of Life and Love for the people and with the people; His revolution was and still is to train and discipline the mind of His people so they can come to know Him and the Life of Love which He wants for all

    You people are supporting a few men, who seem to be on a quest to destroy the whole of Dominica for the sake of fame and popularity, which they do not deserve, without considering the tragic outcome of their homeland and her people.

    What sin did Mr. Isaac commit to chose to come out from among a group like that?

    Crocodile tears or are they tears of a severely guilty conscience? This man deserves the collective scorn and wrath of all decent and fair minded citizens. Politics really makes strange bed fellows. Mr. Isaac is highly unprincipled, easily corruptible and very untrustworthy. His credibility is in tattered and even his newly found colleagues would be skeptical of his motives. Maybe not, it’s just to get his snout in the trough. A genuine scoundrel indeed. It’s all about himself and family members and nothing about his suffering constituents who voted to put him in parliament to work on their behalf. Shameless man.

    Wipe Joseph, wipe, what is history going absolve you from, being a deciever. I believe history will record that you as being dishonest to the people of Central Roseau. A few months ago you were telling them of your dissatisfaction with the Prime Minister, because he ignored your plea to assist Dominica in its time of desperate need. In parliament, Minister Austrie told the parliament and the constituency of Roseau by extension, about your lack of managerial skills. I hope, the saying, it pays to forgive and forget, will work for you. I further hope Minister Austrie gets your forgiveness for all the terrible things he publicly said about you. The Prime Minister will also need your forgiveness for the manner he treated you, when you were a member of the UWP. By the way, have you discussed with the Prime Minister, what part is Robbie Tonge likely to play as his services will no longer be required, as the DLP care taker of the Roseau Constituency.

    It is so sad that men have to take these decisions against their philosophy, to have to go against it. I know of many men who had to do this, friends who made enemies and attacked each other for the sake of politics. I know of men who did it to feed their families. People are made to kneel down or accept what they get or else they starve. Church leaders are to sing the praises or they do not receive certain concessions. Farmers who once walked into SAG Motors (Agents for Toyota) and Astaphans (Agents for Mitsubishi) with cash in hand to get their brand new pickups are now merely ghost. If you don’t support you don’t survive. I am sorry for the people who have to live with their consciences twisted for the rest of their lives.

    The man I risk my life to help free from our enemy has now teamed up with that same enemy, for money and power I must say, to try to kill and destroy us? He has now taken an oath to help destroy the country we tried to deliver from our oppressor? No conscience, no heart, no love, no mercy just damn greedy? Only time will tell

    Dominica’s politics lacks hygiene. This lack of hygiene on the political playing field has the country in last place in the Caribbean. There is such a lack of hygiene, that politicians take the country and its electorates for granted. A massive reshuffling of such a useless cabinet and the inclusion of a former uwp pal rep now independent, as minister.. The politics is so filthy n lacking hygiene that today one is blue then tomorrow he is independently red.
    There is need for hygiene in order corruption and other illegal practices be discouraged. Can you imagine, most buildings in Dominica are without electricity, n roofs yet politicians playing politics with people’s lives n safety.
    There is such a lack of hygiene in the governance of Dominica, that incompetency is rewarded and ministers n pal reps who cross the floor are rewarded with a make up ministry… Dominica lacks ethical, moral, political, social, financial n spiritual hygiene.. There is need for hygiene from all fronts.

    I never thought I would live to meet a man with a worse heart than Judas Iscariot. Yes it is a fact that Jesus was the one Judas betrayed, but at least he was later very remorseful, to the point that he attempted to give back the 30 pieces of silver he received for betraying his friend Jesus, to the point that the man said he sinned. But this guy Joseph Isaac, who did not just betray Linton and uwp, but the man took my vote and my money used to help uwp win and went to Skerrit man? Does he have a heart? Is that the same man that same Skerrit told the world that he attempted a coupe on and, later send police to arrest him and poor me and other supporters put our lives at risk shouting ” Free Joseph Isaac now”? Man you worse than Judas Iscariot and it will not go well with you even if we wish you well.

    Joseph Isaac..this is disgusting. Not only to those who gave you their vote but to any Dominican who regarded you as a man of of your word. As a grown man what do you stand for! Do you really know? Or are you tossed to and fro wherever the money is?

    I don’t know if Judas Iscariot ever took an oath, after he betrayed Jesus because based on this account here in Matthew 27:3-5:Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

    4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

    5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

    At least Judas Iscariot was remorseful and offered to give the money back as a sign of brokenness. Unfortunately Joseph Isac was even worse than Judas by taking the oath. Boy to outdo Judas Iscariot is bad wii

    How can Joseph Issac who espouses independence, fiscal responsibility and good governance not see that he is in the wrong camp? How can he not see that he is a part of the problem.Dominica now has the most government ministers and the biggest government in the Caribbean and does not have a productive sector to complement the top heavy administration.This is a modern mobster organization where allegiance to the boss is what’s most important.We will see by the time election is called that Joseph issac is a labourite and not any independent which he claims to be.El Supremo is taking care of the boys in his cabal.

      JI knows it is wrong, he feels bad inside, but he also thinks ‘if you can’t beat them join them’. As they say, a little bit of corruption is contagious. That’s why this island is rife with it. So many people going the wrong way… they’ve given up and feel it’s normal now, apart from those with the utmost integrity and pride in themselves. All these thief type characters don’t have any pride in themselves, they are just getting washed along in the tide of corruption. What they haven’t factored in is that karma doesn’t miss a trick, she sees all and these guys will get their just dues. Whether it comes from judgement day or some other event, they will reap what they’ve sewn. At that point they will be begging for mercy, but it will be too late..
