Recording of Boston police nets man $170,000 settlement – by Stephen C. Webster – Tuesday, March 27, 2012 15:52 EDT

The City of Boston settled a lawsuit recently filed by Simon Glik, an attorney who was arrested in 2007 as he recorded police using force to subdue another man.

The settlement total came to $170,000, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Massachusetts, which represented Glik in the case. He was initially charged with a felony, under laws meant to ban illegal wiretapping, but the charge was dismissed.

“The law had been clear for years that openly recording a video is not a crime. It’s sad that it takes so much for police to learn the laws they were supposed to know in the first place,” Glik said in an ACLU media advisory. “I hope Boston police officers will never again arrest someone for openly recording their public actions.”

The city has since initiated a training program for officers that teaches them to ignore individuals who film their activities in public. The two arresting officers in Glik’s case were also disciplined.

“The court’s opinion made clear that people cannot be arrested simply for documenting the actions of police officers in public,” Glik’s attorney, David Milton, added in the advisory. “With this issue squarely resolved against it, it made sense for the City to settle the case rather than continuing to waste taxpayer money defending it.”

Glik isn’t the only American to face arrest for recording police officers in public. Others have been taken into custody in states like Florida and Illinois. A federal jury in Oregon, as well, awarded minor damages to a man who was arrested for filming an officer in 2009.

“The First Amendment includes the freedom to observe and document the conduct of government officials, which is crucial to a democracy and a free society,” ACLU Massachusetts staff attorney Sarah Wunsch concluded in the advisory. “We hope that police departments across the country will draw the right conclusions from this case.”

Good on the recording, BAD on the reward. Too damn high! Instead they should offer this guy a job in enforcement and sack the worst in the police. Giving away 170K is so very wrong when a 401K is considered a retirement. This quantum of payment could lead to abuse of the system where staged abuse cases which are colluded on for exposure with so-called whistleblowers to defraud the tax payers of funds possibly splittingthe payout later on. Do a second investigation and end this pay-out practice at once. At most award what a journalist (not the plutocrat type journos) could get for any special ‘scoop’. 170K is s sign of corruption somewhere. The system is being tweaked to ‘feel good’ but still the THEFT continues, but in different form. 170K of taxpayer’s funds are excessive and corrupt!

Dennis Rodman ‘extremely sick’ and ‘broke’ his lawyer claims as ex-NBA great faces jail time over ‘nearly $1million in unpaid child and spousal support’ – by Daily Mail Reporter – PUBLISHED: 23:39 GMT, 27 March 2012 | UPDATED: 15:16 GMT, 28 March 2012

His reputation for living dangerously has followed him since his retirement from the NBA.

But former basketball star Dennis Rodman is now ‘broke’ and ‘extremely sick’, according to his lawyer.

Attorney Linnea Willis says the 50-year-old is suffering from alcoholism and is barely able to cover his living expenses, as he fights off claims the Hall of Fame player owes nearly $1million in child and spousal support.

Rodman faces up to 20 days in jail for missed payments.

Court documents obtained by The Daily Record show as of March 1 Rodman owed $808,935 in child support for his nine- and ten-year-old children.

Rodman also owed $51,441 through March 1 in back spousal support, Jack Kayajanian, attorney for his ex-wife, Michelle Moyer, claims in the filings.

The news outlet reports Michelle Rodman is identified in the documents as a Costa Mesa, California resident. She is also requesting attorneys’ fees.

But the former athlete’s attorney says it’s unreasonable to expect Rodman can afford the $5,000 he has for one child from another relationship; and the $4,500 monthly payment for spousal and child support to Michelle Rodman.

‘Respondent Dennis Rodman is broke and cannot afford any additional fees,’ Mr Willis writes in filings on his behalf, adding that he is ‘extremely sick’.

‘…And in all honesty, Dennis, although a very sweet person, is an alcoholic,’ Mr Willis writes.

‘His sickness impacts his ability to get work. This case, especially his wife filling for divorce, has put him on a binge that I have never seen before. He is extremely hurt and extremely sick. He is often unable to obtain work because of this sickness. And his sickness is getting increasingly worse.

‘Dennis cannot afford his own monthly expenses. If the court awards attorney fees, it is setting Dennis up to be in contempt because you cannot get blood from a turnip,’ Mr Willis contends.

The attorney says those who have represented Rodman to date have worked pro bono.

Mr Willis claims Rodman this year has paid more in child support than he’s earned; and that he has only been able to pay by borrowing money from his finance manager, Peggy Williams, and his agent, Darren Prince, according to The Daily Record.

Mr Willis claims Rodman has made $8,000 this year, a staggering difference from the $570,000 in earnings he claimed at the time his wife filed for divorce.

The former couple married in 2003 on Rodman’s 42nd birthday, settling in Newport beach, California.

According to a Los Angeles Times article published in 2004, Rodman listed his monthly expenses then as more than $30,000. Michelle Rodman listed her monthly expenses as $17,000.

But in 2008 police were called to a domestic violence incident at a Los Angeles hotel.

Rodman pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor spousal battery charges and was sentenced to one year of domestic violence counselling and three years probation. He received 45 hours of community service.

Rodman later entered rehab for treatment for drug abuse, and appeared on Celebrity Rehab.

The reality television stint came long after Rodman retired from NBA basketball in the 1999-2000 season after a 14-year career, known then as one of the most revered rebounders in the NBA.

Rodman is scheduled for a court hearing in Orange County, California on Tuesday.

The discrepancy over his spousal and child support payments are not his only financial woes, however.

The Daily Record reports Rodman owes more than $350,000 in back taxes, which Mr Willis says were calculated incorrectly by a former accountant. He claims his client owes about $100,000.

You would think providing for his kids should be his number one priority. > Yeah, well if the child support wasn’t a ridiculous unfair amount. Maybe, he wouldn’t be a “louse”

And his sickness is getting increasingly worse”================ In other words he is a pathetic weakling who chooses to pour alcohol down his throat instead of manning up and looking after the children he created. Then has the nerve to present his weakness as “sickness”. Sickness is something like cancer – not overdoing the sauce, which is alcohol addiction, which is behavioural, not a disease.

He is an alcoholic. That says it all.The court should force him into a rehab program to get him clean and sober. If he was sober he could earn money doing odd jobs in Holly Wood and Las Vegas. Putting him in jail won’t help anything.

I’m sorry but what kind of lifestyle is his ex-wife and kids living to be owed that much money? I know he is a bit of an idiot to waste his cash on nonsense and at the time he had alot of money when the ex-wife’s claims were made but surely he should be paying somthing that is reasonable enough for them to live a decent comfortable life. Sounds like they bled him dry. He’s still an idiot though.

A real shame. He is a good guy who got caught up in the showbiz lights. He was one of the best basketball players of all time and helped people like Jordan and Pipen shine, because he did all the dirty work. If anything, he was too generous and the party was always on him. Where are the good time “Friends” now when he needs some help ? I hope he lands on his feet and gets back on track.

He throw in my face some paper. He was steeling food in the fridge we had to put locker on them during the night to stop him. Already then he was drinking a lot.

While there is no doubt he needs to put his kids’ welfare before partying/boozing, I don’t see how his ex’s living expenses are $17.5k per month. And what is this “spousal support”?? Is this something he’d still have to pay if they didn’t have kids? What about if she was co-habiting with a new fella? The American judicial system confuses me…

If the solution for bankruptcy of an individual is to jail at 40+K a year on the taxpayer’s back, then the West won’t need any enemies. Instead of a honmeless person costing nothing on the street, the taxpayers get to pay for this persons’ food and lodging for as many years as the Judge decides.

Leave the West alone long enough (heck do trade sanctions and the West could immediately collapse from supporting prisoners alone . . . ) and the West will bankrupt themselves on ‘criminals’ sleeping and eating and being housed under the idiot ‘prison contractor enriching’ system (guess who’s relatives are the cronies) thanks to inpplicable and unreasanable laws.

Looks like the Soviet Cold War Era all over again, except this time the world isn’t going to allow any colonialism or proxy wars anymore, with Human Rights secure nations immune in any case. The Middle East looks like the last frontier and even then, those regions are increasingly peopled by eduicated people who will not tolerate any foreign incursions anymore. Palestine issue is the worst sideshow of course . . . such a small region of the world will not hold hostage 192 countries.

How PM gave his Oxford chum top job (and a peerage) – By Andrew Pierce – PUBLISHED: 23:18 GMT, 26 March 2012 | UPDATED: 00:40 GMT, 27 March 2012

He had never been an MP or a councillor, but is Cameron’s closet friend
He is the first Tory chairman to be given office space in 10 Downing Street

He is one of the most influential men in the Conservative Party.

Yet he never gives interviews, has never stood for elected office, and is virtually unknown outside Westminster.

There has never been a Tory Party chairman like Andrew Simon Feldman.

He was given the job after the general election by David Cameron not because he has long political pedigree in the Conservative Party but for one reason only: he is Cameron’s closest friend.
Oxford friends: Andrew Feldman, circled top left, and David Cameron pose with Brasenose College tennis club pals

This perhaps explains why he is known among his increasing number of detractors on the Tory benches – detractors who want him sacked for his role in the cash-for-access scandal – as the ‘crony chairman’.

When he was appointed there were inevitably arched eyebrows among the Tory faithful.

It was not just that he had never been an MP or even a councillor but he also had none of the clout of his more illustrious predecessors such as Cecil Parkinson and Norman Tebbit.

Trusted: Andrew Feldman is the first Tory chairman to be given office space in 10 Downing Street

There was further unease when Cameron rewarded his friend with a peerage at the end of 2010. ‘What was it for, other than being Dave’s mate?’ asked one senior Tory figure pointedly last night.

But, most controversially, he is the first Tory chairman to be given office space in 10 Downing Street.

He meets party donors there, as and when he chooses, appearing to breach the Parliamentary rules which prohibits party political business from being conducted on government premises.

Feldman, 46, is so intimately involved in the funding of the Tory Party that he was present at private dinners in the Downing Street flat when the Prime Minister was entertaining donors.

‘Cameron takes Feldman to all his donor meetings,’ said one senior Tory.

‘He butters them all up. He’s a businessman so can speak their language.’

Comparisons between Lord Feldman and Lord Levy – Tony Blair’s chief fundraiser, who was dubbed Lord Cashpoint after bringing in millions of pounds from wealthy businessmen – are inevitable.

The irony is that money-raising is only one aspect of Lord Feldman’s role: another is to ensure that Cameron was never tainted, as Blair was, by rows over dodgy donations.

Even his most loyal friends will now concede that he has failed spectacularly in that task.

After all, it was Feldman who was responsible for the disastrous decision to bring in David Rowland, a multi-millionaire former tax exile who had been based in Guernsey for 40 years, as Tory treasurer in June 2010.

Rowland’s business practices had attracted considerable criticism in the years before he was appointed, and he was denounced as a ‘shady’ financier in a Commons motion over one particular deal.

He stood down just two months after he was appointed – and before he had even started the job – after the Daily Mail exposed the extent of his chequered business career and colourful private life.

Feldman was also responsible for the even more catastrophic appointment of Peter Cruddas, who this week resigned in disgrace as treasurer after his boasts to undercover reporters about his ability to arrange access to the Prime Minister.

Senior donors had themselves warned Feldman against appointing both men.

But he simply ignored them because he was so desperate to find someone to do the job.

So who is Lord Feldman of Elstree, and how has he become so close to the seat of power?

Born into a well-off family, he went to Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School in Hertfordshire, where he won a place to study Law at Oxford.

It was at Brasenose College, Oxford, that he met Cameron.

They organised a college May ball together and discovered they had a mutual love of racquet sports (another similarity shared between tennis-playing Tony Blair and Lord Levy).

Encouragement: Feldman urged Cameron to run for the Tory leadership as the dark horse candidate when Michael Howard announced that he was handing on the baton in 2005

Since those college days, the friendship has been cemented, with Cameron describing Feldman as ‘one of my oldest and best friends’.

Like Cameron, Feldman got a First in his final exams; then he took a job with management consultants Bain & Co. before, in 1991, being called to the Bar and practising as a commercial barrister at one of the country’s top chambers.

His family owns Jayroma, a multinational textile company making ladies’ clothes, and in 1995, aged 29, he joined the firm, drawing a salary of £900,000 in one year alone.

It meant he was able to buy the £3million house in Holland Park, West London, where he lives with his wife Gaby and their three children round the corner from David Cameron’s house in Notting Hill.

Tory figures describe Feldman as likeable, friendly, extremely bright and unassuming. He skis regularly, enjoys yoga, and owns another house in Andalusia, southern Spain.

It was Feldman who not only urged Cameron to run for the Tory leadership as the dark horse candidate when Michael Howard announced that he was handing on the baton in 2005 after the party’s third successive general election defeat, but also masterminded his campaign.

Feldman helped run Cameron’s bid with ruthless efficiency, calling in favours from his network of contacts in the business world and raising tens of thousands of pounds in the process. Through his family clothing firm, Feldman himself donated £10,000 to the successful cause.

He was appointed deputy treasurer of the party in 2005, and – ironically given the circumstances today – immediately let it be known that he wanted to end the dependency on major donors such as Cruddas and Rowland.

‘He’s not comfortable with individuals giving large amounts. He wants a wider base of people giving smaller amounts,’ said a party official at the time.

But even before the Conservatives got into power, Feldman made the wrong call.

In 2007, he was chairman of the Leaders’ Club, a dining group for Tory donors who each gave a minimum £50,000 to party funds each year.

They would have lunch or dinner in Mr Cameron’s office in the Commons and meet senior Tory politicians.

But this arrangement was in breach of Parliament’s rules, which do not allow party-political fundraising in the House of Westminster, and Mr Cameron was forced to ‘unreservedly apologise’ after he was rebuked by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, Sir Philip Mawer.

In 2008, Lord Feldman was appointed chief executive of the Tory Party and was given specific responsibility for attracting party donors. Yet he blundered in the summer of 2009.

With the then shadow chancellor George Osborne, they met the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska at billionaire financier Nat Rothschild’s luxury villa in Corfu, where a possible £50,000 donation was discussed.

Donations from foreign nationals are illegal, although Feldman insists he was not soliciting money from Deripaska.

He was made joint chairman of the Conservative Party with the Muslim peer Sayeeda Warsi after the 2010 election. Since then he has emerged as one of the key players in Cameron’s inner circle of advisers.

When Cameron became Prime Minister, in his first Press conference with his deputy Nick Clegg, he pledged to end the old political culture where ‘tight-knit tribes make important decisions in wood-panelled rooms’.

Allowing the Tory chairman to talk to party donors in the comfort of a Downing Street office, or in the kitchen of the flat above, hardly fits in with that firm commitment to clean up politics.

Sir Alistair Graham, who was chairman of the Committee on Standards in Public Life which drew up the rules on party political funding, said Lord Feldman’s decision to hold meetings at No 10 is ‘entirely improper’.

He said: ‘The ministerial code says there has to be a clear divide between genuine government matters and overtly party political matters such as talking about donations. This is a clear breach of the rules. I would have thought that the Conservative Party had enough office space of its own without the chairman setting himself up in 10 Downing Street.’

Britain to give Syria’s opposition £500,000 aid to ‘gain skills to build democratic future’ – By Nick Enoch – PUBLISHED: 20:34 GMT, 29 March 2012 | UPDATED: 20:41 GMT, 29 March 2012

William Hague: Funding will help ‘hard-pressed’ opposition document regime’s violations
Arab leaders back UN peace plan at summit in Baghdad
Assad vows to assist with plan – if his opponents end violence
Syrian rebels kill two army colonels

Britain will provide a further £500,000 to support Syria’s political opposition in the face of president Bashar Assad’s regime, the Foreign Secretary said.

William Hague is expected to announce the extra funding tonight during his annual speech at the Lord Mayor’s Easter Banquet.

Mr Hague said the money would help ‘hard-pressed’ opposition groups to document the regime’s violations.

His announcement comes as Arab leaders at a regional summit in Iraq’s capital today endorsed a UN-backed peace plan for Syria which they said should be implemented ‘immediately and completely’.

The six-point plan, drawn up by Kofi Annan, calls for the withdrawal of heavy weapons and troops from population centres, humanitarian assistance, the release of prisoners and free movement and access for journalists.

Assad has promised he will do all he can to ensure Mr Annan’s plan succeeds but has demanded a pledge from his opponents to halt violence.

In his speech, Mr Hague will set out that he has ‘agreed to provide a further half a million pounds of British support to Syria’s political opposition’.

‘It includes agreement in principle for practical non-lethal support to them inside Syria,’ Mr Hague said.

Syrian rebels take their position behind a sand barrier, in the Khaldiyeh neighbourhood in Homs. Britain has pledged ‘non-lethal’ aid to help them ‘build a democratic future’

‘It will help hard-pressed opposition groups and brave civil society organisations inside and outside the country to document the regime’s violations and gain the skills and resources they need to help build a democratic future for Syria.’

The Government has, over the last eight months, given £450,000 of practical support to the Syrian opposition, including media skills training to internal activists and advice to Syrian human rights defenders.

The support is intended to aid Syria’s political opposition groups to develop themselves as a credible alternative to Assad’s regime and develop the necessary capability to realise an orderly transition to a more democratic Syria.

Britain sent an expert mission to the region last month to help document the atrocities that have taken place.

Assad vows to aid peace mission

Bashar Assad’s promise to do all he can to ensure the peace plan came as rebels carried out a string of bold attacks, killing two army colonels and kidnapping a high-ranking pilot.

The president’s condition of an express promise from the opposition to stop attacks could complicate Mr Annan’s attempts to bring an end to more than a year of violence that the UN says has killed more than 9,000 people.

The opposition has cautiously welcomed Annan’s six-point plan, which calls for Assad’s regime to implement a cease-fire.

But the opposition is also deeply sceptical Assad will carry it out, believing he has accepted the plan just to win time while his forces continue their assault to crush the uprising.

Armed rebels are unlikely to stop fighting unless offensives by security forces halt.

In speeches at the Arab leaders’ annual summit in Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, yesterday, many made clear they felt the burden was on Assad’s regime to halt the fighting.

‘The Syrian government is required today to listen to the voice of reason and wisdom and stop all kinds of violence,’ the emir of Kuwait told the gathering.

In comments carried on Syria’s state news agency, Assad said: ‘Syria will spare no effort to make (Annan’s) mission a success and hopes it would return security and stability to the country.’

But he added that Mr Annan must also get a commitment from armed groups to cease their ‘terrorist acts’ against the government.

Throughout the crisis, Assad’s regime has held that it faces not a popular uprising against his rule but a campaign of violence by terrorists.

Syria’s uprising began a year ago with peaceful protests against Assad, which were met with a fierce crackdown by security forces.

Since then, army defectors and protesters who took up weapons have formed militias, initially to protect protesters.

But as the bloodshed rose, they turned to seizing pro-opposition neighbourhoods, towns and areas and launching attacks on government forces, usually raids on checkpoints or on army convoys.

The new attacks today were particularly bold.

In Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, gunmen opened fire on two army colonels in the central Bab al-Hadid roundabout, killing them.

The state news agency Sana said the four attackers belonged to an ‘armed terrorist group’.

In eastern Ghouta, a suburb a few kilometres from Damascus, gunmen kidnapped the pilot, a brigadier, while on his way to work,

Rebels also attacked an army truck and killed two soldiers in the central province of Hama, activists said.

Fresh clashes also broke out between government troops and army defectors in the north and south, and activists said security forces reportedly killed at least 16 civilians across Syria, including a child and two women.

Sana said authorities successfully liberated five military personnel who it said were kidnapped earlier by an ‘armed group’ in the northern province of Idlib.

The minister added that Uruguayan business people make business “with whom they wish and with whom they can…Uruguay, the administration of President (Jose) Mujica from the very first moment never said that a commercial blockade of the Islands was needed”.

Nevertheless Uruguay supports Argentina’s sovereignty claim over the Falklands and recently co-sponsored a Mercosur resolution barring all Falklands’ flagged vessels from regional ports.

Almagro’s statements come at a crucial moment for the government of President Mujica who is going through one of its worst moments in the bilateral relation with Argentina because of the continuous trade restrictions imposed by the administration of President Cristina Fernandez. President Mujica has encouraged his ministers and Uruguayan business people to search for new markets.

The controversy about trade with the Falklands was born out of a piece from London’s The Sun saying that Uruguay ‘was breaking the trade embargo imposed on the Falklands by Argentina’, with a business delegation that will be flying to the Islands with a chartered aircraft next April 13.

A group of 19 Uruguayan businessmen had already visited Falklands during February seeking for new opportunities mostly in the agribusiness area.

Guillermo Wild, vice-president of the Uruguayan-British chamber of Commerce said the piece from The Sun was ‘confusing’.

“Uruguay has traded with the Falklands continuously during 200 years. Trade was never interrupted and now we have a concrete problem with Argentina so any trade from Uruguay with the Falklands outstands and is motive of headlines for the English media”, said Wild.

Furthermore “there is not such economic blockade as mentioned by The Sun. The only impediment is for vessels flying the Falklands flag to access Mercosur ports. Besides that any vessel and sail in and out of the Falklands”.

Wild said the whole thing blew out of proportion when The Sun got hold of “a copy of a note I sent Falklands’ businesses on the possibility of a cargo charter flight and if anyone was interested to let us know”

“An air cargo company showed up at the Chamber and asked about the possibility of making a flight to the Falklands and consulted us on possible business contacts. What we did was to contact local businesses but so far no one has turned up”, revealed Wild.

The vice-president of the Uruguay-Britain Chamber said the trade situation from Uruguay with the Falklands is “business as usual” with the only exception for Falklands flagged vessels, which was agreed at last December’s Mercosur summit and ‘sent the wrong message’.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Try a limited blockade targeting only England and the Commonwealth nations (where the English Monarch is the head of that organisation – any countries choosing to drop out of Commonwealth can resume trade with Mercosur . . . ). Uruguay’s suggestion plays both sides as much as the above suggestion does. 30% (pro-West) /70% (pro-South American nations)! Should Uruguay concur with the above selective blockade suggestion, we’ll all be sure that Uruguay is on the right side of things.

Five anti-gay activists charged – Tuesday, 27 March 2012 13:35

KUALA LUMPUR- Five activists of the anti-lesbian gay bisexual transgender movement were charged at the magistrate’s court here, yesterday under the Minor Offences Act 1955 with putting up certain posters.

Muhammad Nizam Ali, 24, Hamzah Mahmood, 32, Md Norizam Che Othman, 31, Shahir Saarani, 30, and Mohd Jamil Jamaluddin, 36, pleaded not guilty to committing the offence at Jalan Wan Kadir in Taman Tun Dr Ismail at 3.40am on Feb 4.

They were alleged to have committed the offence with five others still at large.

They were said to have put up, at a public space, posters with pictures and words such as “Lim Guan Eng Racist”, “Lim Guan Eng Anti Melayu”, “Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans” and “Undi Ambiga Undi Seks Bebas”.

Deputy public prosecutor Haderiah Siri proposed bail for each of the accused at RM10,000 with one surety. Defence counsel Rezal Mazli Abdul Muin said the proposed bail was too high and suggested RM300 for each person.

He said the five accused were first-time offenders and that they were being charged with a minor offence which carries a maximum fine of RM1,000 if found guilty.

Magistrate Zulkpli Abdullah fixed bail at RM1,000 each and allowed two bailors to post bail for the five accused.

He fixed May 7 for mention.

One of the bailors was Tengku Amalluddin Sani, national secretary of Jaringan Melayu Malaysia, who said that the five had come to the association for legal help.

Nizam and Hamzah were unemployed and Jamil was self-employed. Norizam and Shahir were mechanics.

The five posted bail. -nst.com

Not bad at all. Get these 5 to put up apology and anti-hate posters that will be removed by these 5 later. This is not about money or fines, though the fine could be calculated against the ‘UNINFLATED by middleman’ cost of the proceedings. Hate Speech crimes for LGBT being punished is a good sign though. How about the Judiciary take on the UNHCR Article 18 (also Malaysian Constitution 11) Apostasy issue to streamline Malaysia’s legal system as well?

Jail, rotan for unnatural sex – Tuesday, 27 March 2012 13:19

GEORGE TOWN – A former university student was sentenced by the Sessions Court here to five years’ jail and ordered to be given 11 strokes of the rotan after he pleaded guilty to five charges of committing unnatural sexual acts against two boys, including forcing one of them to sodomise him.

Muhammad Mustakim Mohamad, 23, admitted committing the offences between Oct 2010 and March last year.

He had initially claimed trial to the charges but changed his plea yesterday.

In the first three charges, he was accused of forcing a 14-year-old boy to perform oral sex on him at 7.15pm on March 13 and 5.30pm on March 20 last year, and forcing the boy to perform anal sex on him at 9.15am on March 19 last year.

In the other two charges, Mustakim was accused of stimulating a 9-year-old boy to commit an indecent act at 11pm on Oct 15, 2010, and at 3pm on March 16 last year at a house in Taman Bukit Gambir, Jalan Bukit Gambir, Gelugor.

Counsel Rosli Ismail, who appeared for Mustakim, asked for a lighter sentence as it was his client’s first offence.

Sessions Court judge Sitarun Nisa Abdul Aziz sentenced Mustakim to five years’ jail and three strokes of the rotan for each of the first three offences, and three years’ jail and one stroke for the other two offences.

She ordered his jail sentences to run concurrently from yesterday.

Deputy public prosecutor Sariza Ismail prosecuted.

Charges should be for coercive sex or paedophilia – IF any. If both cases were consensual, this would be a Muslim sin. How to punish if consensual? Expel them from the religion at most. All this whipping is simply medievial and barbaric. Hitting does not foster better EQ or better behaviour. Any punishment from age technicalities between obviously consenting parties is also wrong. Any element of coercion should be considered. But where there is none, the state itself has no right, much less via theocracy to hurt individuals or brand consenting persons victims. This is a harmful legalistic culture that is backed with spiritually wrong treatment of sexuality. Remember that sex is for recreation of procreation. And as early as 5 years old a child could carry to term, though psychologically they will not be ready.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_youngest_birth_mothers

But by 10 or 12 the psychological implications can already be very clear to females (remember that the psychological age of females are up to as many as a decade ahead) and the action of sex cannot be relegated to an age number in the law book. ASK both parties if there was coercion, and then consider if any party feels aggrieved. Usually marriage will formalise and solve reputation problems, but in modern societies, this is different because word of law is considered instead of spirit of law by lawyers divorced from the psychological dimension of the issue. Modern society focuses too much on recreational sex at times, but the element of sabotage and manipulation of 3rd parties to induce such sabotage typically for :

1) monetary gain

2) simply to ‘sabotage or fun’

3) immature minds influenced by bad family environments or man hating militant feminist persons trying to hurt men influencing pliable children

There are many complexities and angles that ‘word of law cannot clarify’ but ‘spirit of law’ can.

This response is not intended as a defense for paedophilia but for reminding on the spirit of law, and the deeper aspects of consent, psychological age, as well as physical maturity which judgments are often levied in isolation of one or the other aspect. Compound this with Islamic Jurispredence which advocates corporeal punishments like whipping or limb hacking and anyone can see where EQ and even SQ goes entirely out the window. God knows how many people have been severely harmed spiritually or otherwise from such viciousness and the legal system’s neglect of the subtler aspects of the why and wherefore before judgment and passing of sentence.

Mr PM, let me tell you why we are worried: Cow-gate, Cop-gate, AG-gate and now Anak-gate – by Robert Phang – Tuesday, 27 March 2012 17:53

Prime Minister Najib Razak must lead the way, show true reforms and avoid cover-ups. The government’s objective of making crime reduction one of the National Key Result Areas (NKRA) is now showing results. According to the World Justice Project Rule of Law Index 2011 Report, Malaysia was ranked the safest country in the Asia Pacific Region.

All these are marked improvements of the image of the PDRM than when it was under the previous IGP, Musa Hassan. During Musa Hassan’s time, the PDRM was despised, the Along money-lending syndicate became a national menace and the crime rate was high especially street crimes. In short, Malaysians feel unsafe then. Some may say that was all in the past. But the past shapes the present and the future.

Police need to buck or fall behind

In that regard I feel compelled to remind the PDRM that the positive image now can slide back to what it was before. I feel compelled to remind PDRM that it must not be a law enforcement agency that is involved in cover-ups in protecting only the rich and powerful. As such, current CCID Director, Dato’ Syed Ismail Syed Azizan, must be commended for announcing that the police had recommended for prosecution action in the NFC “Cowgate” scandal. This had forced AG Gani Patail to finally charge Shahrizat Jalil’s husband, the Chairman of the NFC, for CBT. That unconventional announcement was a very brave and smart move by Syed Ismail so that there cannot be a cover-up for which the police will be made to take the blame. That really helped improve the image of the PDRM in the eyes of the Rakyat.

As a Friend of the Police, I call on the Rakyat not to misconstrue the statement made by the Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein about the revelations made by former CCID Director Dato Ramli Yusuff of the cover-ups, fixing-ups, fabrications and abuses of power by Musa Hassan and AG Gani Patail in what is now known as the “CopGate Affair”. What Minister Hishammuddin had really said was “Prove it, and we will take action. No one is above the law”. Thus, we must take that positively.

Police duty to investigate and not kow-tow to AG

Since Hishammuddin has asked for proof, YDH IGP Ismail Omar must now take the Minister seriously and direct investigations by his officers. The police powers to investigate crimes are prescribed by the Police Act. If I may, IGP Ismail Omar can show his seriousness, objectivity and professionalism to uncover the truth and obtain evidence by taking the following steps:

> exclude CID Director, Bakri Zinin, from this investigation. This is to protect Bakri Zinin from any allegations of being connected to AG Gani Patail as Bakri is also from Sabah;

> direct independent minded investigators like CCID Director Syed Ismail who is not easily intimidated by AG Gani Patail as has been shown in “Cowgate”;

> not to allow circumvention of police work by any politician, no matter how high that politician may be, from carrying out police duties as that is the oath of duty of a professional police force;

> leave no stones unturned of all the reports made by Dato’ Ramli Yusuff against AG Gani Patail and Musa Hassan that have now been in the public domain for some time, namely investigate:

a) the truths of the SD by Musa Hassan’s ADC of his complicity with the underworld;

b) the truths of 10 other SDs by the other policemen;

c) the truths of the SDs by the other informants about the turning over of their informant’s evidence;

d) the cover- ups for Goh Cheng Poh in the Along syndicate investigations and the circumvention of police work in that case;

e) the unlawful access of Cicero confidential files;

f) abdication of AG’s duties under Art 145 Federal Constitution by refusing to act for and prepare affidavits for CCID;

g) fixing-up of Dato’ Ramli and his six officers by using the fabricated statement of Moo Sai Chin who was then under EO Detention;

h) fixing-up of Dato’ Ramli’s lawyer;

i) AG’s complicity in the matters concerning Tajudin Ramli/MAS and whether there was suppression of evidence;

j) AG’s refusal to prosecute Tajudin Ramli despite the recommendation of the CCID;

k) relationship between AG Gani Patail with Tajudin’s proxy, Shahidan Shafie. It is noted that Shahidan was previously charged for corruption while he was OC Secret Societies of Johor;

l) whether it is proper conduct for an Attorney-General to fraternize with a person of ill- repute (Shahidan Shafie) especially when that person is connected to an on-going investigations by the Police and the MACC. Their consorting together is evident as exposed in the Haj scandal with photographs and other supporting Tabung Haji documents;

m) AG’s complicity in the Ho Hup corporate tussle as evidenced by photographs of the A-G at Ho Hup’s office and the prosecution of the other side.

Not for Nazri to decide

The Rakyat is disappointed that the Speaker of Parliament had rejected the urgent motion by Subang MP R Sivarasa for this matter to be debated in Parliament last Wednesday. The integrity of AG Gani Patail impacts on the whole system of justice in this country. The Rakyat sees this refusal to allow parliamentary debate on a matter of such importance as a cover-up.

To dispel this negative perception, I ask IGP Ismail Omar to discharge his constitutional duties to investigate without fear or favor. I ask Ismail Omar to disregard the misconceived statements of Nazri Aziz that the government will not investigate this further. It is not for the Minister to state whether the complicity of AG Gani Patail should be investigated just as it is not for that Minister to direct GLCs to settle their cases with Tajudin Ramli.

Anak-gate : Where did the lawless son get so much money?

Nazri may be the Law Minister, but he has no legal nor moral authority to tell the police how to carry out the law if he cannot control his lawless son and his bodyguards in connection with the recent assault of a security guard. According to the police reports made available to me, Nazri’s son had even used his father’s Minister’s name card to introduce his entourage. Is that not abuse of power? The Rakyat is not amused that the case has been classified as Affray under s. 160 Penal Code. Affray is fighting in a public place. His son’s body guards trespassed onto private property and assaulted a security guard. How could that be an affray?

Beyond that, the Rakyat ponders how did Nazri’s son afford such luxurious cars – a Porsche driven by him and a Toyota Vellfire by his bodyguards? Why did he need bodyguards? What business is he in? Are we seeing further examples of “Cowgate” amongst the families and sons of Ministers who live in absolute opulence whereas the Rakyat are told to be thrifty and constantly reminded of rising inflation and high cost of living.The MACC should look into whether this Minister’s family is living beyond their means or having unusual wealth. After all, that is what all civil servants are subjected to under the MACC Act. So, it is better that Nazri controls his “anak jantan” and his entourage to behave in accordance with the law than for him to meddle in the affairs of the police.

The IGP must direct PDRM to act independently. That is how checks and balances in government institutions are maintained so that the Rakyat can feel safe and secure. Politicians come and go but the institution of the police cannot be made to succumb to their whims and fancies.

Too much evidence against Gani Patail to ignore

The evidence already in the public domain against AG Gani Patail are just too numerous for the government to ignore. As such, on behalf of the Rakyat I beg PM Najib to hear the Rakyat’s voice. The PM should know that the Rakyat is unhappy that he has said that it is not necessary to constitute a tribunal to look into this. The Rakyat wonders why the government must defend this AG until it affects the credibility of PM Najib’s government. This may only fuel suspicion that AG Gani Patail and Musa Hassan have a hold on the PM and other government leaders. PM Najib must dispel this by taking firm action.

PM Najib must not lose the plot. PM Najib has already shown that he will walk the talk when it comes to the Rakyat. I am sure PM Najib is sensitive to the Rakyat’s feelings. He is already popular with the reforms undertaken so far. So, let it not be dampened by the allegations surrounding AG Gani Patail. The Rakyat will support PM Najib in all his reform plans especially when the Rakyat trust there is no cover-ups.

Quite partisan and edging away from a bold statement or two in the past. Kinda disappointing and though qualified, wealthy and networked enough, yet probably will not have the courage to run as an indpendent candidate. Abit too pro-Xian around the edges and possibly with skeletons in closets as well . . . better than no choice for independant candidates, but would Tan Sri Datuk Robert Phang dare to take the righteous path than being so unsteady in facing the PDRM and with an agenda against Nazri faction? How about communicating to the Malay Rulers on the Bumiputra-Apartheid issue?

Not too old but wavering as hell, and in 2 decades or so, no longer viable. Run for candidacy as an independant if you dare Tan Sri and stop sniping from the sidelines like some of us who have not built reputations or wealth sufficiently to properly join the battle or have had reputations sabotaged. Make clear or run for candidacy on the below, find proxies as independent 3rd Forcers, otherwise file a lawsuit instead of floundering around pointing fingers shamefully like this. The 3 items again to take a stand on :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (UNHCR Article 1)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (UNHCR Article 18)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (UNHCR Article 1)

Political attacks on Nazri should not take precedence over the above 3 items. File a lawsuit with the UN about the above Robert, our so-called CM of Penang and ‘Chinese leader’ doesn’t have the focus to do that, being a bronze souled product of nepotism that does not know that campaign promises need to be kept and that quorums are the only thing that qualifies a CM’s seat, not a father’s ‘gift placement’ shamelessly and undemocratically accepted. Heck even term limitless Mubarak-Gaddaffi style LKS would not make the central committee in DAP if there were OPEN ELECTIONS in undemocratic DAP.

We despise violence – Tuesday, 27 March 2012 17:33

Twenty-five years ago at the Kuala Lumpur Thean Hou Temple, the ruling and opposition party took the same stand and protested against the authority for allocating teachers who did not understand Chinese to hold high positions in Chinese primary schools. Twenty-five years later, how could there be an attempt violent at the rally intended to protest against the shortage of teachers in Chinese primary school?

People strongly condemned the violent incident during the Himpunan Hijau 2.0 rally on 26 February, but why didn’t they severely condemn the violent attempt at the rally?

I can only say that the Malaysian political struggle has incandesced and the people’s emotions have been stirred up. It is now an either you or I die battle.

Unfortunately, the attempt violence has shifted the focus which should be on the call to solve the serious shortage of Chinese vernacular school teachers. Who can still remember the four major motions passed by the rally? The incident has led to a war of words and more important works has been forgotten.

Violence used at any rallies can actually be studied from two angles.

Firstly, it is undeniable that politics has distorted the people’s sense of right or wrong and judgement. It is common to see double-standard practices.

They condemn severely when supporters of the other party use violence but when supporters of their own party do the same, they claim that the victim has self-directed the incident or deserves the violent treatment. If the situation goes on like this, the Malaysian politics will not only become a joke, but as well continue to sink.

It is not the first time to see the act of violence. It is worrisome that people might become insensitive as it is increasingly common.

Politicians are busy staging shows and have completely ignored the act of violence, or even assault. It is indeed a connivance.

There is only one standard for right and wrong. No one should play with the law to achieve political purposes. If the ruling and opposition parties do not follow the established rules of the game, even a general election would not be able to resolve contradictions and the society will be in a state of unrest.

Most horribly, isolated act of violence might evolve into collective acts of violence, which could destroy the country.

Secondly, if grievances and emotions have been provoked continuously but no way to vent the anger is provided, it would become a violent force, resulting in the loss of control.

The accumulation of grievances might go on for decades, such as the unfair treatment received by Chinese education. However, it could also be an unexpected event, like the rare-earth refinery plant issue.

When grievances are accumulated, the confrontation will become increasingly fierce. Grievances would affect rationality and they take it as an act of justice to knock down the other party, no matter by what kind of means.

Stirring up emotions, including exposing scandals of the authorities, also has a strong vote gaining effect. When emotions become increasingly passionate, rationality will relatively abate. It will be useless no matter how well the ruling party does.

Therefore, those in power must listen to public opinion and adjust their policies to relieve social grievances and avoid emotional voting.

A society tolerating, or even advocating, violence must be a problematic society. We should despise violence or the acts of violence will destroy the rule of law and civilisation.

What matters to ordinary Malaysians is not privileges but their rights – LETTERS/SURAT = Thursday, 29 March 2012 admin-s

It is always and all about: see what we are doing for the Malays; see what development we have brought for you; look at the roads and expressways; look at the future of public transport and rail systems we promise to build; witness the billionaires we are creating; and so on and so forth.

J. D. Lovrenciear

If you go by the standard operating procedures of the BN political machinery and practice, for the past fifty over years, and more so in the past thirty years, ‘privileges’ has been the sanctioned and sacrosanct principle.

But if you take inventory of the DAP, PKR and PAS manifestations, it is easily noticeable that they are selling ‘rights’. Their thrust has been – especially from the pre-2008 election year to now, one of returning to the man and woman in the street their basic and fundamental rights as citizens and as humans.

As society progresses in thought and feelings over time, humanity awakens to the importance of rights. Society begins to register an understanding that privileges belonged to the feudalistic era of bygone times.

Privileges belonged to a time a time and space where the masses would glorify their rulers and lords for whatever the powers-that-be would have spared for the masses. The masses would say, “at least my master gave me this.”

But man is no more beholden to politicians and leaders and rulers. Man – all over the world is now saying, “you are there because we put you there.”

‘Rights’ therefore has become the mantra of contemporary politics.

Rights is also the product of the seeds of religion that was sowed since the dawn of Islam and Christianity. Today, if you witness the Egyptian Spring, it is no surprise as it is the precipitation of the people’s reaction to the long ignored ‘rights’ and the much favored ‘privileges’ by the authorities.

The same would apply in China, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines or anywhere in the world. We have entered a new age and awakening – thanks to technology, and more so because humanity is evolving, lest we forget.

Today, in Malaysia, if you observe the BN political mantras and preaching and actions, it is very clear it is one that is solidly anchored on privileges. It is always and all about: see what we are doing for the Malays; see what development we have brought for you; look at the roads and expressways; look at the future of public transport and rail systems we  promise to build; witness the billionaires we are creating; and so on and so forth.

In summary BN is a firm believer in the philosophy of creating privileges for the masses. So do not question how the political leaders live their lives. Just be grateful how well BN has given you something along the way.

Now, on that same wavelength, if you were to summarize the opposition parties’ preaching and promises and actions, they are consistently championing the returning of the rights of the rakyat.

The right to free education; the right to knowledge of the ‘how and what’ of businesses undertaken by government and affecting the man in the street (i.e. through the abolishing of the OSA, for example); the right to information (i.e. the abolishing of the Printing and Publishing Act); the rights of religion and religious practices; and many more ‘rights’ of the rakyat is what the opposition is peddling.

Now who among the two political groups – BN and Opposition, is doing the right thing at the right time?

The world around us is full of evidence that humanity is all about rights and not privileges. The new century we are operating in is one that liberates the human soul through technology, knowledge capital and faith. And as much as religion teaches and technology supports this quest to be liberated, the rights of humanity will be the fulcrum of politics today for tomorrow.

J. D. Lovrenciear, what are you talking about here? Malaysians already have these “rights” as enshrined in the Constitution. What we do not possess is the privilege of exercising these “rights”.

Why discriminate against straight people? – Thursday, 22 March 2012 Super Admin (Raja Petra Kamaruddin)

Anyway, why are you just focusing on gays? Do only gays pay tax? Straight people pay tax as well. So why are you not also taking into consideration straight people? As you said, 30% of Malaysians are gays. That means 70% are straight. So straight people are the majority. And since Malaysia is a democracy, don’t the needs of the majority count?

NO HOLDS BARRED

Raja Petra Kamarudin

The government needs to create a “homosexual rehabilitation centre” to combat the phenomenon in Malaysia, according to Barisan Nasional MP who today claimed 30% of Malaysian men were gay.

According to a Bernama Online report, Datuk Baharum Mohamad (BN-Sekijang) said in Parliament today that this was to aid those with homosexual tendencies or engaged in same-sex relationships to stop such behaviour.

“We have to find a solution to combat these activities from getting rampant just like the efforts we take to combat drugs,” Baharum said.

“A study has found that, right now, three out of 10 men in Malaysia are gay. This is scary.” (The Malaysian Insider)

*******************************

Dear Datuk Baharum Mohamad,

I refer to your proposal in Parliament yesterday and would like to say that I found it most interesting. Sometimes I wish I had stood for elections so that I can be in Parliament to participate in these most stimulating debates. Alas, I am resigned to the fact that I am only able to witness these Parliament debates on TV. And since I live in the UK, the only Parliament debates I can witness are those on BBC, which means I get to see only the UK Parliament debates.

I must admit that the UK Parliament debates are quite boring. They only debate issues like the world economy, how to ensure that the UK is spared the economic onslaught and can survive the next three years intact without any severe hardship to the 71 million British citizens, how to reduce unemployment, how to provide homes for the homeless, how to ensure that the old and sick are taken care off, how to improve the British education system so that students receive the best and world-class education, how to achieve zero-racism in the UK and moves to impose heavy penalties for all and any acts of racism, and whatnot.

Sometimes I wonder why I even waste my precious time watching these Parliament debates when I could get better entertainment following Malaysian Parliament debates about the need to set up rehabilitation centres for gays.

I am quite surprised that you said only 30% of Malaysians are gays. I think I remember reading somewhere that the figure is as high as 50%. But maybe that includes closet gays as well. I take it you are talking about those who have come out of the closet. Anyway, 30% or 50% is not really the issue that concerns me. What does is the fact that you are proposing facilities for just male gays while leaving out those female gays and those who are straight.

I take it your interest is to ensure that you can ‘turn over’ gays to become straight. Hmm…turning over gays. That was no pun intended but don’t you find it quite hilarious that you want the government to turn over gays? I mean, gays are already turning over, if you know what I mean. So you probably meant that they should be turned over the other way.

Anyway, why are you just focusing on gays? Do only gays pay tax? Straight people pay tax as well. So why are you not also taking into consideration straight people? As you said, 30% of Malaysians are gays. That means 70% are straight. So straight people are the majority. And since Malaysia is a democracy, don’t the needs of the majority count?

For example, according to PDRM, the 2007 report shows that 0.5% of fatal traffic accidents are caused by drunk drivers. This would mean 99.5% of fatal traffic accidents are caused by those who do not drink. Hence, why would we need to send drivers who drink for rehabilitation? Instead, we should be sending all those drivers who do not drink for rehabilitation. If non-drinkers cause 99.5% of fatal traffic accidents, then non-drinkers are dangerous and should not be allowed to drive. And they should be sent for rehabilitation and not be allowed to drive unless they start drinking. Hence fatal traffic accidents would be reduced drastically.

If you were to read the Quran, you will see that an entire chapter has been devoted to adultery. The Islamic law of Hudud also addresses this issue and has laid down severe punishment for adultery. Hence Islam is more concerned with adultery than gays. Even the Ten Commandments say you shall not bonk your neighbour’s wife. It does not say you shall not bonk your neighbour’s husband.

Adultery is a more serious problem compared to those who indulge in a gay lifestyle. So should the government not also set up rehabilitation centres for adulterers and adulteresses who are straight?

Why are only gays given attention? As you said, only 30% of Malaysians are gay. There are more adulterers and adulteresses amongst straight people. I am sure for every one gay that you detect you could probably detect ten straight adulterers and adulteresses. So should we not also extend this rehabilitation service to straight adulterers and adulteresses? They too pay tax. Should not they too receive the benefit of the tax they are paying?

Another problem, which is even more serious, is corruption. Corruption is even more damaging to the country compared to people bonking each other or gays turning each other over (this time pun intended). People who give as well as receive bribes should both be rehabilitated, just like gays who give as well as receive should be rehabilitated (again, pun intended).

I am not sure whether the government should set up just one rehabilitation centre in each district with different sections or whether there should be separate rehabilitation centres for gays, straight adulterers and adulteresses, people who give and receive bribes, drivers who do not drink, people who cheat in the elections, people who lie and distort the truth, etc.

Whatever it is, I agree we need some form of rehabilitation for evildoers, deviants, perverts, transgressors, and whatnot. Malaysia is rapidly going downhill and unless we arrest the problem we may soon see the country going down a slippery slope. My only issue is that it is unfair to focus just on gays while excluding this same benefit to other tax-paying Malaysians, who are in fact paying even more tax than gays. I hope you can bring this matter up in Parliament and get a healthy debate going. Malaysia needs Parliamentarians like you to save the country.

Some of the people in this country are so pathetic: perpetual obsession with sex, orientation, more sex, more religion. Can’t you people see all these non-critical issues are a DIVERSION from the serious issues faced by Malaysians?

Yes!. Malaysian Parliament debates are much much more entertaining than the boring British Parliament.

Raja Yang Mulia, you missed one crucial point. That is , the whole Malaysian Parliamentarians should be send to the ” RPK Palia Rehabilitation Center ‘ in Birmingham , UK . And the fees would be more than enough to run MT.

The suggestion of setting up a “gay rehabilitation centre”, though sounds plain silly, is a political smoke-screen to get the Rakyat riled up and engaged in a public debate, both in the blogs and in coffee shop gossips, to condemn such “immoral activities”. We all know that the PR leader, aspiring to be the next PM, would be the target.

I heard that among the activities of the proposed “homosexual rehabilitation centre”, is one where the centre will provide sex partners from the opposite sex for the gays. The purpose is to show to the gays that sex with members of the opposite sex is much, much better, more fun and more fulfilling.

So to all of you ‘gatal’ heterosexuals who wants to take advantage, pretend to be gay and get ready to line-up and get yourselves admitted to the “homosexual rehabilitation centre” once they are opened.

Free accommodation, free food and free sex.

The Quran, which contains references on the previous events also found in the original Gospel Torah & The Bible. For every disease there is a sign, symptom and the causes. Quran don’t come with anything new and the Koran is filled with by prognoses. Just look at the ancient nations mentioned in the Quran and the people that Allah destroyed before.

They come with nothing new and its all the same old game. The games that the people playing today are the same games played before but with different names despite numerous warnings of the destructive consequences of their wrong conduct, they haven’t heeded. Ask them to look at the historical evidence in this regard to see what happened to the ancient nation of Aad, Thamud & Pharaoh. Quran shows us the same signs and symptom and telling us what the cause was. The Quran says”; “If you get the same decease that they had then you have the same prognoses that they have”.

(Quran: 6/45)
The sins which bring about the downfall of a people are numerous, the topmost being injustice, or better still, unfairness, saying clearly: The people, who are unfair, have their roots cut”.

(Matthew 15:19)
“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, and blasphemies”

(Quran: 7: 130)
“And indeed We punished the people of Pharaoh with years of drought and shortness of fruits (crops), that they might remember (take heed).”

(Genesis 19:24)
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven.

And this is again and again in the Quranic narratives, Torah & The Bible we see the same affliction or diseases affected human being till now.

Can I suggest to the government, where more buildings are to be built and more money to be corrupted – why stop at gay rehabilitation center? I say, we should have a center for every sexual act! There are 3 kinds of blow job that come to mind. And there’s making out, there’s S&M, there’s outdoor sex, there’s car sex, there’s sex in a public toilet, there’s cyber sex, there’s frottage, there’s porn addiction, there’s BDSM, there’s orgy – Malaysian demand you build every such center for every sexual act! Why only benefit gay people? Do you not want other people, especially Muslim, to be the utmost obedient followers in the bedroom and otherwise?

I say “hallelujah, it’s raining men!!!” We all know this is only another lie to spend money on behalf of Malaysian, in the name of gay.

RPK, when the first center is opening, could you please help promote it – I’m sure you know several closeted big queens in the government – who better than them to set up example for the public. I beg of you to yank them out of the closet, only you can do it ever so fabulously.

Gay rehabilitation center: read closely “gay” and “center”, in other words, a center full of gays, a rainbow spectrum of gays under the same roof. I can see how the government is ever so helpful and cheeky about legalizing homosexuality in this country by letting all gay men fraternize, socialize and sodomize in a one-stop center. I’m all for happy endings; it’s a free world, no one asks you to have gay sex if you are not gay – do gay people have straight vaginal sex?

All in the name of good governance. We have MACC – corruption gets worse; we have PDRM – well, we all know what goes down on that boat; we have the so-called government performance index, which even viagra couldn’t help raise its pole; we have a judiciary system – where new precedents of murder and corruption are made daily, where motive isn’t a factor for a murder and if you don’t use the corrupted money personally you’re not guilty; so now we have a gay rehabilitation center, I say, Malaysia is on its way to become the world’s first Muslim country to be completely homosexual and gay (happy) about it.

Here are 2 examples of our beloved MPs respond to quires in Parliament. Aprt from the above, I wonder how many percent is such and should we keep them or get kick them out because based on their experts opinion of Malaysia we are DOOMED.
Example 1: “It is not at a critical level at the moment. Our limit or threshold is 55 percent of the Gross Domestic Product, we are now at 53 percent. So you don’t have to worry about it,” Awang told a stunned Parliament this morning.
Example 2: Kong Cho Ha is the second one who needs a thorough tongue-lashing for sheer lack of brains and thinking ability. When asked by DAP’s Tony Pua to explain the rising cost of the KLIA2 relocation and what was the rational behind choosing the new airport site, Kong’s grand answer was that it was because it was “based on the KLIA Blueprint December 2008”.

May I stand to remind the supposedly learned member from Sekijang that to arrest a citizen and deprive him of his liberty, the crime must be clear and definite. It cannot be based on hearsay or blank allegation but must be tested against a well defined character of a crime. Now, how does the member of Sekijang define gay? Is is a personal trait that we are to look out for? Is it an act? Is it a word that someone says? Or is it defined based on what you think in your infinite wisdom that – “itu budak lembut”.

The stupidity of your comment in the August House can be further demonstrated by your suggestion that tax payers rehabilitate them. What is there to rehabilitate if you have not first defined what the criminal act or the criminal mind is (Oh sorry, now after Altantuya’s case, there is no need for criminal mind). What syllabus is there to make them straight? For that matter, what is straight? Can we define straight by Chua’s actions maybe? How about Port Dickson trips? Is that straight?

It occurs to me that the member of Sekijang has merely fired off his mouth merely to impress upon his political masters of his grovelling loyalty to their cause of attempting and attempting again to smear the name of certain members of Parliament. It is proof that no one is listening to Nalla in the Upper House and no one is listening to Umi Hafilda in the open streets – however much they prostitute themselves.

In the west, it was revealed that some children were abused by the priests. What makes everyone think that this happens only in the west? I am sure that the religious mullahs and monks are also having a great time sexually abusing the children put under their care. Hence many become transvestite in Thailand as monkhood is compulsory for buddhist. And many malay male undergrads walk funny as they are sexually abused in sekolah agama asrama and other government boarding schools.

These poor children have nobody to relate their problems to. Their parents have enough trying to feed and educate them. If your kids have poor exam results, eat poorly and always sick and misses classes, better start talking to them. Normally, these kids will shut their mouth and suffer in silence.

Flippant. You know how this reads?

RPK goes . . . And since Malaysia is a democracy, don’t the needs of the majority count? . . . then . . . My only issue is that it is unfair to focus just on gays while excluding this same benefit to other tax-paying Malaysians

How ingenuous can someone so well traveled and involved in politics get? The minorities and how minoritiers are treated is what typifies a democracy, not the other way around. For example, in Africa, the Chinese minorities get Special Privileges BECAUSE they are minorities. So by saying ‘don’t the needs of the majority count’ Raja Petra is tacitly approving Bumiputra APARTHEID in which the needs of the minorities are ignored for the needs of the majority. There is nothing more unpleasant than a homophobic faux-beatnik wearing a Maoist cap who is pretending o be persecuted by the state, that spews racism as if the readers are incapable of fathoming what they are spewing. Very disappointing RPK, lets hope Tengku Dr. Haris is not a false flag pretending to boycott you as well RPK. We’d like to think there were proponents of REAL Royal exceptionalism instead of manipulative b.s. couched in half baked propaganda articles.

At first to save face from homophobic statements, now Petra goes hudud on everyone as well. Adultery is bad but should not be treated in this ‘lock them up in rehab’ (suggested along with LGBTs) manner – Hate Speech Crime so nicely and cleverly put IS STILL Hate Speech Crime – insincerity will not be forgiven even if intelligent and charismatic – civilisational values will not give way to mere intelligence, guess which race has trhe lowest EQ again? Or shall we just say this is something that afflicts the older generation? Don’t like LGBT, fine, but live and let live. Why attack like this?  I’m glad that the MCLM bunch left RPK though articles in MalaysiaToday are still very good . . .

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mtcolumns/from-around-the-blogs/46282-why-rpk

….. Stump-jumpin’ Jethro is using all three of his brain cells to talk! … RPK is effectively going, QUOTE ‘ I hate everybody irrelevant of other issues . . . ‘ UNQUOTE ‘JOHN F. HICKORY’ (VCPR)

Politically incorrect and manipulative in a very bad way. To distract from the earlier homophobia by using Theocracy now? Would say ‘Durian sama bangsa . . . ‘, but sorry, still too damn white . . . ‘ . . . 100% purebreeds only . . . we can’t have Mahathir Kuttys posing as Bumis while other Mamaks are not equal, and RPK is still trying to justify homophobia of the earlier article by widening the groups to discriminate against – adulterers – now via hudud no less!

Adulterers belong in a lower strata (not being rich enough to afford 2nd, 3rd or 4th wives or just envious of womenfolk of others without wanting the lifetime’s duty, wanting to be Muslim but unable to follow rules – though unable to change religion as well . . . ), but to use Hudud/theocracy against them in the form of suggesting ‘rehab centres’ for what is after all personal issues, instead of challenging the same by encouraging personal discipline, and advocating personal boycotts (by outlets like hotels etc..) at most of adultry is just ‘fundo-low’. What may seem a serious social issue is personal and private (also should be sued privately, and not ‘rehabbed’ via state apparatus)  in too many ways, regardless of the great numbers. Not easy for adulterers to be Muslims as well, and the corporeal punishment is just plain barbaric. How about counselling instead?

It’s their business, so when we find someone trying to institutionalise and rehabilitate instead of advocating districts or expulsions for whatever behaviour, we identify the closet authoritarians and closet dicators and closet theocrats apart from the ‘Voltarian’ minded people of the world. More epic fail, RPK! But what would we expect from a half blood prince in their 60s . . . too toff and stuffy while posing as ‘socially aware cool’, and not a word on ending apartheid thus far.

 

 

ARTICLE 7

‘WHY NOT EAT DOGS?’ Submitted by Najiah on Friday, March 12th, 2010 – Darshini Kandasamy – Friday, March 12th, 2010 12:14:00

* Datuk Dr Ahmad Suhaimi Omar
* dogs for human consumption
* Local
* Veterinary Services Department (DVS)

PETALING JAYA: Despite public furore, Veterinary Services Department (DVS) deputy directorgeneral, Datuk Dr Ahmad Suhaimi Omar, is sticking by his suggestion last week that stray dogs held at pounds be sold for human consumption — as a method of stray management.

While acknowledging it was a “sensitive” statement, the DVS deputy DG in charge of veterinary health, told The Malay Mail his words were unnecessarily ‘sensationalised’.

He insisted that the suggestion would create a “win-win” situation, explaining that stray dogs captured are now kept for seven days — and humanely euthanised if the dogs remained unclaimed after the week.

“Once the dog is caught and nobody claims it, what do you suggest we do? If people want to consume (dogs), why not let them?

“We have to pay for euthanasia as it has to be done professionally by a veterinarian. In any case, who are we to euthanise any animal?” posed Dr Ahmad.

If the slaughter of an animal is for the purpose of consumption, Dr Ahmad argued that “in principle, most religions would basically allow the slaughter”.

Still, he pointed out that he was not asking people to just eat dog meat. He argued that foreigners like the Vietnamese and Koreans consume dog meat; and understood this was a sensitive issue for Malaysian culture and standards.

“We should not impose our values onto others. If you cannot eat dog meat, you cannot stop me from taking it. Like pork, for example. I cannot eat it but I cannot stop you from eating it.

“This is how we have been able to live harmoniously in Malaysia. We have to be open. It is an individual decision, if others want to eat it, it is up to them.”

Stating he was merely throwing in the idea, he told The Paper That Cares: “I knew it was sensitive, I purposely said it. It was high time to say it. The NGOs are all against it and I know the dog is a pet to most of us.”

Even a farmer, who has raised his cattle lovingly would not be willing to eat the animal when slaughtered, he noted.

“I do stress that if the dogs are to be slaughtered, it must then be done properly and there should be no cruelty at all.”

Dr Ahmad also claimed that while there were a few people who objected to his suggestion at the forum on effective animal pound management, organised by the Petaling Jaya Municipal Council Canine Advisory Team on March 2, he felt the body language of many there suggested they were “excited” by his words.

The suggestion to sell caught stray dogs for consumption will help ease the system and reduce the council’s problem.

“Let this be a lesson to pet owners to not let their dogs stray. It is a matter of responsible pet ownership. We have to educate pet owners, but this will take a long time.”
Howling in horror over statements
blabla

CHIN: Labels Dr Ahmad’s suggestion ‘barbaric’

KUALA LUMPUR: Animal lovers are up in arms over the suggestion by Veterinary Services Department’s (DVS) top man condoning the slaughter of stray dogs for human consumption.

Describing the suggestion as barbaric, the Selangor Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is now demanding that DVS deputy director-general (veterinary health) Datuk Dr Ahmad Suhaimi Omar, retract this suggestion.

Visibly upset, SPCA chaiman Christine Chin told The Malay Mail that SPCA was extremely disappointed with Dr Ahmad’s suggestion — especially in view of his position as the “number two or three person in DVS, who should be promoting humane, sustainable, effective and acceptable solutions to the stray problem”.

“He is not a nobody,” Chin pointed out. “As a possible DVS director-general candidate, he is supposed to be protecting the animals.

“He is in charge of prosecuting people who are cruel to animals.”

While she felt Dr Ahmad did make some good suggestions during the March 2 forum on effective animal pound management, Chin described the dog meat suggestion as having thrown DVS back to the dark ages and undermined every bit of good DVS had ever done, especially in drafting its 2008 guidelines on humane dog-catching methods.

Stating that Dr Ahmad’s suggestion was “barbaric, inhumane, provocative, unbelievable and incredulous”, she said: “We are a society that doesn’t eat dogs. It is not a custom in Malaysia.

“Even in China, animal lovers have banded together to seek legal amendments to ban the consumption of dogs and cats. In Taiwan, it is illegal. What about cats?”

Meanwhile, Malaysian animalassisted therapy society for the disabled and elderly (Petpositive) president, Anthony Thanasayan, described Dr Ahmad’s suggestion as “misplaced and terribly insensitive.”
dr ahmad

THANASAYAN: Dogs are life savers

He said the suggestion only reflected how out of touch DVS was.

“That he thinks dogs are only good as food on the table shows what he thinks of the role animals have been playing in our society, especially today.

“Dr Ahmad must remember that if a building falls down and he gets caught in the rubble, it is not a chicken that will come to save him. He would have to rely on the dog he suggests we eat.”

He said dogs are loving and play a positive role such as saving people’s lives and helping those in need of therapy.

Noting sarcastically that Dr Ahmad may have felt he was being clever, Thanasayan said the suggestion was purely a cerebral statement and not from the heart.

“Whatever he was trying or hoping to do, it did not work… he might as well ask us to eat our children.”

Thanasayan also pointed out that dogs from the pounds often carried disease and no one would want to or should eat such meat.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Don’t attack Dr. Ahmad for being outspoken in his approach to wasting what is after all edible food. This is only in reference to animals fit for eating. Probably most strays would not qualify and I doubt Dr. Ahmad was referring to the thin, sickly and diseased stray but the heavily fleshed and well fed medium and large breeds which are to be put down or abandoned by ex-owners. But still a rather unpleasant but likely viable cottage industry for scavenging the remains of these strays could be made if Veterinary Department made proper arrangements with the stern of heart and strong of stomach to separate the edible portions of the sickest strays from the inedible parts.

This low grade meat of course would likely end up as feed for other carnivorous animals like edible reptiles or amphibians, just to give an example and the very inedible but still organic portions would be best left for snail and worm rearers. Blood can also be drained and processed into other edible products which could be perhaps sold to commercial fish feed makers or such. Did you know that many organic waste sources from farming are processed in this manner into feed products too? Nothing should be wasted in this day and age. Rat catchers could make a small fortune rearing edible food animals which do not mind eating rat or which will not be affected by disease carried by rats.

Of course if not disposed in this ecologically friendly manner after being put down, carcasses will pollute the environment to no one’s benefit if they take up space in decaying landfills producing global warming methane, or pollute the air by cremation. Let’s not attribute Dr. Ahmad’s scientific based familiarity with the stark practicalities in the animal husbandry/feed business to being callous. The flesh/organs/bones of the dead pet, especially if not diseased or too old, are still obviously nutritious and life giving and can be sold as viable restaurant grade meat to better fund the Veterinary Department or at the very least made into a nutritious broth for non-vegetarian soup kitchens.

So if something edible is thrown away, or put into a wooden box, then buried to breed dangerous microbes for decades when there are hungry people on the street who would appreciate the sustenance, throwing away or consigning to rot what is in effect FOOD would be SINFUL. Think of the eco-friendly efficiency of the Zoroastrian “Towers of Silence” and you get what I mean. There is a brutally efficient cycle in nature, and letting emotion get the better of logic instead of thinking green will result in a world filled with cemetaries of dead husks better put to work back in the increasingly depleted soil. Even sewage should be processed properly via natural biological methods instead of being sent to the ocean to pollute and poison the environment.

The Chinese ate dogs until the Dog Worshipping Manchu’s forbade it. Koreans very much treat dog meat as a regular part of their diet. Tycoon Li Ka Shing has an entire label of canned dog meat being sold in his convenience stores. Dog meat plants throng in many parts of Asia. There are also fish, pigs and cows which are pets of people. Does this mean that all these types of animals are to be considered inedible because some are treated as pets??? Stop this dietary fascism! Though concession on the spiritual issue of allowing an animal to live the course of natural life in a natural environment (that means not being stuck in the home of a psychotic supposedly ‘doting’ owner who does not ask if that animal wants to live among others of it’s own kind or that thinks neutering without consent (many pets can’t communicate that they don’t want neutering but their owners send them off for castration or spaying at the equally EQ-dead Veterinary Surgeon anyway), or being stuck in a circus FOREVER working but never earning (the biggest PAYDAY for an animal if FREEDOM, NOT daily food which it can hunt or forage on it’s own WITHOUT any human ‘oversight AFTER licving habitates are destroyed by the same humans – little wonder caged animals want to kill humans so much . . . ) or never being allowed to retire, having a timetable non-consensually . . . ) AND that vegetarians are ‘cleaner’ though far less suitable for certain types of work in society (i.e. meat eating soldiers more effective etc..), cannot be argued against.

Did the above bears, elephants, tigers and chimpanzees consent to doing any work for anyone? To perform for your entertainment? To be controlled during ‘musth‘ ? Much like human rights, animals also have their rights. To live in a community of their own species, to not be isolated, to refuse to do heavy work or perform at any time (well at least up to the point of humane work hours with days off AND with the right to retire on a ‘pension’ . . . Prevention of Cruelty to Animals needs to consider these FACTS. Not just about appearing naked or throwing paint on fur . . .) Now think, if any human being were subject to the above, would they not want to rip someone’s heart out? Some animals out of a colony of the same species who CHOOSE and can be encouraged (not manipulated or forced in isolation) to perform consensually, could still continue performing but these should be few and far between if anything.

Conversely, as the saying goes, “Do not play with your food.” now also learn this : “Do not befriend your food.” The former owner had already neglected the animal or deemed it be put down, or cannot afford to support the animal any more. The buyer of the dog meat would have no emotional bond, nor would the soul of the animal know any difference if it’s physical husk is used to satiate someone’s hunger. If a dead pet is edible, please do the right thing and feed the hungry ! Use local stitched pelts to clothe the cold in temperate countries. Make useful products like bone meal to feed other pets or even livestock. If you prefer to bury a dead pet animal underground so that as to weep over the carcass every year, remember, the planet would eventually be filled with graveyards of dead pets competing with the living humans in driving up land prices further just to stoke the egos of the selfish while nutrients are sequestered away in coffins or urns instead of enriching the soil again as nature intended, even as living humans are already finding it increasingly expensive to have their own dead interred. Is Dr. Ahmad’s solution so unthinkable now when viewed holistically? This logic also may be applied to humans as well (think soylent greem), and population and space levels have not yet reached a saturation point but eventually the same problem will creep up on us in time if hastened with this form of inconsiderate indulgence which sequesters the space of the living and impacts the future for the living and mankind.

BUT, this ‘ownership of pets’ thing is an abomination unless at a certain level of space and species-colony association, probably the only pet owners will be peole with fair sized tracts of land to build habitats of a size able to simulate natural surroundings for the animal and accomodate a reasonable colony of that animal FROM which the owner could begin considering ‘training’ for performance . . . think – a single pride of 5-10 lions requires up to 100 miles of hunting space, WTH is a circus cage and isolation you cruel f***s ??? . . . meat though, should NOT be wasted.

Not fair, Pakatan should have stopped crowd from attacking Wee – Mah – by Mah Hang Soo – Monday, 26 March 2012 22:57

While I respect the right of the audience who had gathered at New Era College on 25 March 2012 or better known by its acronym “325 assembly” organised by the United Chinese School Commitees Association (Dong Zong) to rally against shortage of Chinese-educated teachers for Chinese schools, I wish to point out that restraint must be practised at all times, no matter how emotional speeches maybe, or the atmosphere leading up to and during the event.

Newspaper headlines and online news portals have reported that one protestor had even thrown a punch against the Deputy Minister of Education cum MCA Youth chairman Datuk Dr Ir Wee Ka Siong.

The supporters may voice their grievances. They have every right to a differing opinion from that of the federal government or the Education Ministry or Barisan Nasional. But they should never resort to harassment and getting physical against any individual. To do so, is to completely abuse freedom of expression, and disrespecting the rights of individuals to personal safety.

Situation could have spiraled out of control

Dr Wee and the police and bodyguards should be commended for not reacting against the assailant but remaining composed at all times. The situation could have grown out of hand with more damage incurred if there were any on-the-spot retaliation.

Pakatan’s hypocrisy

More than a dozen Pakatan Rakyat leaders like PKR Secretary General Saifudin Nasution and lawmakers and excos like Tian Chua and Teresa Kok present at the protest should be condemned for not appealing to the crowd to exercise physical control and restraint. Indirectly, they have contributed to the heckling and attempted physical assault against Dr Wee.

Todate, why is there still no criticism by Pakatan legislators against the action of physical intimation by the protestor? If they do not accept heckling from the audience, why did Pakatan leaders in attendance not address the crowds advising them to be rational and behave calmly?

Sheer hypocrisy radiates from Pakatan leaders who on one hand preach the right to freedom of expression, right to assembly, but do nothing to ensure the right to personal security or to respect a differing opinion.

Pakatan Rakyat pattern to condone heckling against BN leaders

It appears to be a trend for Pakatan leaders to condone public jeering, verbal abuse where physical safety of any BN leader is put at stake. Only about 10 days ago where a discourse on women’s issues was held in Penang to which Wanita MCA Penang chief Sdri Tan Cheng Liang was subject to loud taunts from the audience thereby interrupting her presentation, Wanita DAP’s Chong Eng did not rebuke nor appeal to the audience not to be disruptive or rude.

Commendable of MCA Youth leaders to be present

Recognition must be given to Dr Wee as well as MCA Youth Education Bureau chief Sdr Chong Sin Woon for attending the rally despite the partisan fervour of the audience. If they were absent from the rally, Pakatan leaders would have had a field day deriding MCA as snubbing the event. Their presence despite the highly-charged atmosphere indicates that MCA Youth listens to grouses from the ground irrespective of political affiliation. MCA Youth is with the masses.

Instead of merely jeering Dr Wee, the audience should allow time and opportunity for the 8-point formula prepared by the Education Ministry’s committee on addressing teacher shortage in Chinese schools headed by Dr Wee to work. To be dismissive of the measures undertaken by the Education Ministry without even giving time to see the results means one is already clouded with biasedness and will fault-find no matter how much effort is initiated.

Why was MCA and Wee attacked? MCA has attacked ALL the minorities by encouraging continuance of apartheid from remaining in BN. Wee and MCA is a symbol of apartheid – ‘si mata sepet’ versions of  ‘Uncle Toms’ if anything. Shouldn’t such symbols know what they are? Some of these grassroots don’t communicate well, the hazards of taking bad political decisions (staying in BN instead of leaving apartheid BN and leading 3rd Force despite having so much wealth . . . ) are exactly as expressed by these angry citizens. Minorities races in Malaysia and worldwide seek :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects

Home to a rules-based Penang, says CM – By K.C. Boey – March 27, 2012

Malaysians and former Malaysians listen to Lim at the Chinese Association of Victoria on March 25, 2012. — Pictures by K.C. Boey
MELBOURNE, March 27 — Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng returned home today assured of the attractiveness of the state as a destination for investors, and of the mood for change among Malaysians in Melbourne.

Lim was in Melbourne from Friday leading a delegation to promote Penang as an investment and tourist destination, and on a drive to recruit talent among Malaysian professionals and business.

He inaugurated Penang Festival as a strategic partner of Fiesta Malaysia as officials of InvestPenang and its Career Assistance and Training (CAT) Centre updated students, professionals, and Australian and Malaysian business on developments and the thrust of industrial strategies in Penang.

“Business in Victoria were receptive to the prospects of linkages between them and industry in Penang,” Lim summed up his three-day visit to The Malaysian Insider.

Among the indications to him was participation at a business briefing he presented, co-hosted by the Victorian Department of Business and Innovation and the Australia Malaysia Business Council (AMBC) Victoria.

Victoria Governor Alex Chernov hosted a dinner attended by government and industry leaders. Present were Victorian Minister for Technology and Minister responsible for Aviation Gordon Rich-Phillips, and head of Linfox logistics group Lindsay Fox.

At the AMBC briefing, Lim was reminded of the state of industry in Victoria, reliant on upscaling its manufacturing in the two-speed economy of Australia against states endowed with mineral resources.

Lim, a graduate of economics and accountancy from Melbourne’s Monash University, sympathised with the needs of the Victorian economy, raising the prospects for complementarity between the two states.

Lim and Mohamad Rameez (right) at the AMBC briefing.
Penang, as with Victoria, lacked natural resources. Both had to build on their human talent to be competitive to better internationalise in engaging globally. There were prospects to strengthen the value chain in the respective economies by building on global supply chain, without either having to relocate industry.

Victoria had strengths in research and development in high-level manufacturing sectors such as biotechnology, nanotechnology and solar energy that lent themselves to collaborative partnerships.

Lim cited the success of American industry Honeywell developing avionics in Penang for Boeing’s Dreamliner aircraft.

Penang is the most active among Pakatan-ruled states to look outwards for investment. With six per cent of Malaysia’s population, it accounts for 36 per cent of foreign direct investment.

Penang has been successful in winning investment from Singapore, and Lim is encouraged by response from Hong Kong, with the increasing number of daily direct flights between Hong Kong and Penang.

Lim speaking to Malaysians at the Chinese Association of Victoria.
Lim said the aim was to transform Penang into an international and intelligent city. Just as Melbourne was the cultural and sporting capital of Australia, Penang was likewise in Malaysia.

Among those on the Governor’s dinner guest list was Penny Hutchinson, director of Arts Victoria. On Lim’s itinerary was an afternoon with Parks Victoria and the Royal Botanic Gardens of Melbourne, where he was given an overview of parks and garden management.

At each of his stops, Lim spoke about Penang’s green credentials. He hoped to initiate exchanges with Parks Victoria that would help support the Penang Botanic Gardens and facilitate a greener and cleaner Penang.

Of his visits abroad, Lim, who is secretary-general of DAP, acknowledged the co-operation of federal agencies in their foreign postings such as those from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Wisma Putra).

Turning to Consul-General in Melbourne Dr Mohamad Rameez Yahaya, who was with Lim at the AMBC briefing as well as at Fiesta Malaysia, he said: “When we are outside the country, we are all Malaysians.”

At a meeting with more than 200 Malaysians last night, Lim shared Pakatan’s vision of rules-based governance, and allayed them of any concerns.

“It is time to stop racial and religious division,” he said. “At heart, we are all Malaysians.”

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Rules (laws and constitution) which are undemocratic or reduce Human Rights are meant to be broken (or legally challenged), and those amendments to bad and oft abused by-laws have not been implemented by DAP while DAP uses the same bad laws to abuse the people with. And not a word on apartheid? “It is time to stop racial and religious division,” is far too oblique for any racist to hear. Foolish and petty minded nepotist. At 66.6% quorums LGE would never have been CM. This man’s presence is an insult to democracy and the  voters, who had no choice in deciding who should be CM.

The detected mood for change is that from DAP’s abuses and neglect of real issues. Any 2 bit factory owner or local assembly level politician can organize such a sit in. But glory hog here wants to meet the Bunyips. A real CM would be filing lawsuits or leading MLK style marches against APARTHEID. Use that CM’s mandate LKS (LGE’s father)  nepotistically gave LGE ! This CM is a total fail in democracy, not much different from KTK who was not nepotistic but ‘totally lapdog’ instead. If the minorities wanted a business investment company CEO we wouldn’t need DAP to host such stupid meetings. Waste of political mandate. And lowers the standard of what CMs should do.

On Lim’s itinerary was an afternoon with Parks Victoria and the Royal Botanic Gardens of Melbourne, where he was given an overview of parks and garden management.

LGE thinks he’s white now? Well along with England and the other colonies, much change will be arriving in the form of 3rd Force (barring the lack of guts). PAP is rubbish, DAP is less than rubbish. Where are the real minority leaders that will ask for equality? Step forth and depose this product of nepotism! Trading in business populism, not even political populism, instead of common sense. Here’s your Malaysian yellow ‘Uncle Tom’ (to foreign powers in this case) much like LKY has typified the part for decades . . . keep partying in Australia on taxpayer funds while APARTHEID exists and keep abusing powers instead of amending laws, what happened to Wee should happen to LGE next . . . politicians are supposed to make life easier for the Rakyat then bow out after 2 terms, not parachute in because of nepotism. Unvotable and undemocratic!

Vote 3rd Force instead! : KITA, JATI, MCLM (whats left of it, but homophobes could find it a good party that has 20 candidates), PCM, Borneo Front, Konsensus Bebas, HRP/Hindraf and PSM maybe SUPP if SUPP wakes up (much like MCA/MIC and Gerakan will not) and perhaps SAPP and LDP . . . and any independent candidates as in the list below who can CLEARLY take up the above 3 items (not like mealy mouthed Pakatan who looks preferring to keep the entire term limitless, apartheid system ion place to benefit themselves) . . . :

1) Maimun Yusuf http://www.worldbulletin.net/index.php?aType=haberArchive&ArticleID=19162

and potential wolves/turncoats in the making :

2) Koon Yew Yin (the plutocrat Civil Engineer who cannot commit to candidacy though suitable),

3) Ummi Hafilda (PKR hater at odds with PKR VP Azmin)

4) Auntie Bersih 2.0 Annie Ooi Siew Lan (so far basking in limelight for being old but not yet running for candidacy)

5) Another Auntie Bersih 2.0 the high profile one Ambiga Sreenevasan (who struck down rightful Perak MB Nizar while Bar Council President during BN’s 11th term)

6) any plutocrats out there with a conscience ready to fund some 99%ters (especially Malays) to run on the above 3 items .

Of course PM Najib could make things easy for himself and everyone by granting the above 3 items and finish that 2nd term as PM. Otherwise run for candidacy as 3rd force independents.

Najib says ready to declare Jalan Sultan shoplots as heritage sites UPDATED @ 05:17:51 PM 22-03-2012 – by Shazwan Mustafa Kamal – March 22, 2012

PETALING JAYA, March 22 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today the government is prepared to declare buildings in Jalan Sultan, Kuala Lumpur as heritage sites, assuring owners that their shophouses will not be affected by the planned Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).

He said as prime minister he was aware of the need to have a balance between urban development and heritage, and that Malaysians needed both.

“For us to have development in Kuala Lumpur, efficient public transport necessary; it’s not a choice… the only way forward is MRT.

“We are prepared to declare as heritage buildings… (It is) important for us to preserve history, legacy but (it) should not impede progress… then you are not moving with the times,” Najib told Chinese-language radio station 988FM in an interview this morning.

“Jalan Sultan (landowners) not against MRT but they want assurance that their shophouses not affected. (We have) given assurance,” he added.

The dispute over the tunnelling along Jalan Sultan erupted after landowners were informed by the government that their properties would be acquired for the MRT project.

MRT Corp subsequently made an offer for Jalan Sultan property owners to vacate their premises for six months, and guaranteeing there would be no land acquisition, that any damage will be repaired and loss of income compensated.

Nineteen of the 23 owners along Jalan Sultan have so far said that they will pursue the offer, with another two willing to have their lots bought out by MRT Corp. A further two are still holding out.

Less about heritage and more about property rights please. Is this to say that unless a property is heritage, that there are no property rights at all? Section 8 of the Land Act must be abolished. Eminent Domain Laws must be abolished. Allodial Property titles must be allowed to citizens. Any MP or Assembly person who does not concur with this intention of the Rakyat must immediately be considered unvotable.

Stop gap measure, and quick popularity boost by PM Najib that benefits a iconic area’s citizen protections. This should remind Pakatan NOT to abuse the Rakyat’s property rights for mere profit. Chinatown might be saved now, but the problem of Secton 8 of the Land Act’s presence is a potential loophole for abuse by the Federal and also State Government. All MPs must be made to sign under penalty of resignation of their MP seat to initiate actions that will AMEND the Land Act to remove abusive Section 8. Meanwhile the LEGAL JUNTA – Bar Council and Judiciary, has remained silent AGAIN on the issue of serious issues like these much less address :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.

‘It can lead to mistaken identities’ – by Andrew Sagayam – Monday, March 26, 2012 – 14:50

KUALA LUMPUR: If all enforcement agencies donned the dark blue uniform used by the police, it would lead to much misunderstanding and mistaken identities.

The one-uniform system may have a negative public impact if an enforcement officer’s service falls short due to dealing with problems not within his expertise, said Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) commissioner Muhammad Sha’ani Abdullah.

With only removable badges to differentiate the agencies, the system will pose a high risk of misrepresentation.

“Imagine a snatch theft or robbery happening and witnesses call out to a nearby officer in blue. Unless he is a trained policeman, the officer would not be able to help much,” he said.

Muhammad Sha’ani said that the scenario was likely as a standard uniform would not allow the public to distinguish the various agencies.

The new uniform system might also kill the pride of policemen, he said.

Malaysian Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee said that the identification of enforcement officers was crucial for public satisfaction in knowing which agency they would be dealing with.

“A common uniform for all enforcement agencies may not achieve this.

“There must be wide and prolonged awareness campaigns to educate the public, and standard operating procedures for officers to produce their authority card bearing their name, rank and number.”

“The cost may not justify the change in policy. And without such campaigns, there will surely be confusion and abuse,” he said.

For Tenaganita executive director Irene Fernandez, the new system would only result in more extortion of foreign workers by bogus officers.

“Every day, at least one such worker is extorted. If Malaysians are going to find it difficult to identify the officers, imagine how would it be for foreigners,” she said.

She said that the public is already confused with current enforcement methods and calls the idea “crazy”.

Asked if a vest or a sticker on the uniform would help, Fernandez said it would not.

“They can be easily removed. All donning the same colour will not help enhance the identity of the agencies,” she said.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

While apartheid continues unabated, the Bar Council president talks about uniform colours. No better than Nero playing violin while Rome burns. WHAT IS THE BAR COUNCIL FOR?!? To tacitly approve the wrongdoing throughout the entire system? When are those laws going to be updated? when will the apartheid constitution be amended? The people have a mood for change but only from DAP’s unkept election promises, abuses of power and whitewashes, as well as Bar Council’s neglect of the REAL ISSUE below :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects

Will the overseas Universities who deemed Malaysia’s Bar Council and Judiciary based LEGAL JUNTA ‘legal professional graduates’, withdraw all the degrees of these mindlessly pro-establishment seat warmers that refuse to amend laws, to give the people of Malaysia a proper stand  against the oppressive apartheid government and these colluding NGOs registered with the biased ROS? These groups are not doing their jobs at all.

Park Romney: Why he turned against the Mormon church – by John Sweeney BBC News

The Mormon Candidate is part of the latest series of This World, broadcast on Tuesday 27 March at 19:00 BST on BBC Two    Special report: US 2012

Mitt Romney, the front runner in the race for the Republican Presidential nomination for the White House, is a devout Mormon, but his cousin, Park Romney, also in the past a committed member of the church, now denounces it as a cult.

“I became convinced that it’s a fraud,” Park Romney told the BBC, explaining his reason for leaving the Mormon fold.

The two visions of Mormonism the Romney cousins present could not be more starkly opposed. Park Romney, 56, is a former Mormon high priest, who turned against the church. On the stump Mitt Romney, 65, has avoided mentioning Mormonism, instead talking generally about his faith, but he has been an active lifelong member of the church. [[[ *** Park Romney, those fundies are aiming for you. At Park Road recently, but it made it to Talca . . . if not contrived to sabotage via article, some help here with the lawsuits please?

“If that is what they believe, it’s probably a good thing they leave, because we’re not a cult”

Jeffrey Holland Mormon Church Elder

He was a Mormon missionary to France in the 1960s, studied at the almost-exclusively Mormon Brigham Young university and rose to become first bishop, then “Stake President” (diocesan leader) in his home state of Massachusetts.

He led Sunday services, ran Bible classes for children and looked after a 4,000-strong congregation in Boston for five years in the 1980s.

Like all Mormons, he is expected to give 10% of his annual income – no-one knows how much he is worth, but it is estimated at anywhere from $150 million to $1 billion – to the Church and not drink tea, coffee or alcohol.

Committed Mormons wear special under-garments, and Romney is believed to follow this tenet of his faith too.

Park Romney’s criticisms of the church are fundamental.

Along with other ex-Mormons, he questions founder Joseph Smith’s prophecies – for example Smith’s translation of an Egyptian scroll, part of the Mormon book of Abraham, which Egyptologists say is a fraud.
The Mormon faith

The church was founded in the 1820s in New York State before moving to Utah in 1860
Mormons believe their founder Joseph Smith found golden scripture plates buried by an angel
The church is estimated to have 14 million followers and to be worth $30bn (£18.9bn)
A recent poll said one in four Americans would be less likely to vote for a Mormon candidate

“There’s compelling evidence that the Mormon Church leaders knowingly and wilfully misrepresent the historical truth of their origins and of the Church for the purpose of deceiving their members into a state of mind that renders them exploitable,” says Park.

Such accusations are rarely heard in the US, a nation founded on the principle of freedom of religion.

“It’s not something you’re supposed to talk about,” says Prof Robert Putnam of Harvard Kennedy School.

“Whenever the issue of Romney’s Mormonism has come to the surface, there’s been lots of condemnation across the political spectrum for raising the issue of his religion,” says Putnam.

“I’m not saying it’s not relevant, but it’s not talked about in polite company.”

Mitt Romney’s biographer, Scott Helman, agrees.

“There are plenty of ways in which people try to cause alarm among some voters over it, but it’s not something you’re allowed to say explicitly,” he says.

“But a certain function of reminding voters who might have some predisposed notion about Mormonism that maybe it is strange, maybe it’s weird.”

Ex-Mormons tend to be the church’s most outspoken critics.

One thing that particularly agitates them is “shunning” – allegations that former church members are denied access to family members who remain in the church.

Park claims this has happened to him.

“I am alienated from my family,” he told the BBC.

“Their doctrine, their protocol and their culture as enforced by bishops encourages the families to disassociate themselves from the apostate.”
Mormon worshippers at annual conference – file pic 2009 The Church has its headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah

Mormon Church elder Jeffrey Holland denies shunning occurs.

“We don’t use that word and we don’t know that practice.

“If I had a son or a daughter who left the Church or was alienated or had a problem, I can tell you I would not cut that child out of family life,” he states.

The Mormon Church maintains that it does a great deal of good. Its leaders say they have given more than $1bn in aid around the world since 1985.

The allegation that the Church is a cult, made by Park Romney and other ex-Mormons, is denied by Elder Holland.

“If that is what they believe, it’s probably a good thing they leave, because we’re not a cult.

“I have chosen this church because of the faith that I feel and the inspiration that comes, but if people want to call us a cult, you can call us a cult,” Elder Holland says from behind his desk.

“But we are 14 million and growing.”

Why Mormons Don’t Drink Coffee or Tea – by Lura Lee

Have you noticed that most followers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) commonly called Mormons, don’t drink coffee or tea? You’ll see them enjoying herbal teas (tisanes), hot cider, and many true believers even drink caffeinated soda. The casual observer may jump to the conclusion that this is 1) a law, 2) must have something to do with caffeine. Neither is accurate. This article goes into detail to explain the historical significance, context, and modern interpretation of the prohibition/exhortation against coffee and tea for Mormons.

The Word of Wisdom

Followers of the LDS church believe in a book of scripture called The Book of Mormon, and the concept of continuous revelation. They believe that the Holy Spirit continues to communicate with humans. Thus, the prophet Joseph Smith received a spontaneous manifestation of God’s insight for living correctly on February 27, 1833. This insight was written down and incorporated into the Doctrines and Covenants of the Church; specifically, these insights are referred to as the Word of Wisdom. It may be an apocryphal story, but it is said that Joseph Smith was moved to ask for God’s insight on the matter of tobacco, and the revelation that resulted included guidance related to the use of tobacco, “warm drinks”,”strong drinks”, wine, meat, herbs and grains.

A Word of Wisdom, for the benefit of the council of high priests, assembled in Kirtland, and the church, and also the saints in Zion-
To be sent greeting; not by commandment or constraint, but by revelation and the word of wisdom, showing forth the order and will of God in the temporal salvation of all saints in the last days
Given for a principle with promise, adapted to the capacity of the weak and the weakest of all saints, who are or can be called saints.
Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation-
That inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together to offer up your sacraments before him.
And, behold, this should be wine, yea, pure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make.
And, again, strong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies.
And again, tobacco is not for the body, neither for the belly, and is not good for man, but is an herb for bruises and all sick cattle, to be used with judgment and skill.
And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.
And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man-
Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving.

The common hot drinks of the time were coffee and tea. But this was a dietary shift for Joseph Smith’s contemporaries, the generation of Mormon Pioneers.

No Man Knows My History: The Life of Joseph Smith by Fawn M. Brodie – Mormon Pioneers

Mormon pioneers had a relatively high literacy rate compared to other people around the world in the 1830s – 1850s. To a large extent, this can be attributed to the fact that they had

Protestant roots and they needed to read Scripture in order to properly practice their religious beliefs. Keep in mind that the United States at this time had no federal program of education for its citizenry. Most states and municipalities didn’t either. Compulsory, standardized, universal education was a reform of the early 1900s. Still, many of the middle-class pioneers were literate, kept diaries and read guide books prior to embarking on the overland journey west to Utah, which came to be known as the Mormon Trail.

The most popular books of the time were: William Clayton’s The Latter Day Saint’s Emigrant’s Guide (1848), and Joseph Ware’s The Emigrant’s Guide to California (1849). All of the guides of the time included recommendations for provisioning the wagons. For example, Andrew Child’s Overland Route guidebook included foodstuff recommendation for three men to include 50 pounds of coffee and 2 pounds of tea, even the LDS leadership recommended packing coffee, tea, and alcohol for the 1846 overland journey. But while they were packing the wagons, they may have contemplated the advantages of quitting any coffee or tea habit they had acquired while living in Illinois. They were fleeing religious persecution, after all, so they intended to minimize contact with non-believers, and coffee and tea won’t grow in Utah. So, to some extent, the rejection of tea and coffee amongst the Mormon Pioneers was a mechanism for building Mormon identity at the most basic, formative, constitutive level.
Next to Godliness?

The current debate over coffee, tea, caffeine, and other “hot drinks” boils down to a difference in interpretation about whether this particular portion of the Doctrines and Covenants is an outright prohibition or merely counsel. During the Temperance movement years, the Mormons referred to the Word of Wisdom to eschew alcohol consumption, and became associated with strict Prohibition reform. Around 1921, the Mormon Church switched from the use of wine in religious ceremony to water. Today, it seems that full participation in the Church (participation in the Mormon Temple) is granted to those who are strict adherents to the Words of Wisdom. But there is still room for debate on the specifics of what it means to “strictly” adhere to the tenets of the Words of Wisdom. Even today, there is a lot of discussion about whether it is just coffee and tea, whether cola is ok, whether decaf coffee and tea are ok, etc.

Essentially, the Church leaders recommend the rejection of any drink that might be habit forming. “With reference to cola drinks, the Church has never officially taken a position on this matter, but the leaders of the Church have advised, and we do now specifically advise, against the use of any drink containing harmful habit-forming drugs under circumstances that would result in acquiring the habit. Any beverage that contains ingredients harmful to the body should be avoided.”(Clifford J. Stratton, “Caffeine–The Subtle Addiction,” Tambuli, Mar. 1990, 25)

Now, coffee is seen as part of that slippery slope that leads away from God. Coffee, booze, marijuana, cocaine… all a defilement of the temple that God gave us.
If Not Coffee — What?

So, in lieu of coffee, what hot beverages do Mormons enjoy? Well, they used to drink Postum. They were crazy for Postum. Postum was a roasted grain and molasses drink produced by Kraft foods. It was discontinued from production in 2007. Mormons also favor the following drinks served both warm and cold: herbal tinctures, milk, and non-alcoholic apple drinks. They also enjoy Italian sodas, fruit drinks, and milkshakes.

Will the Next President Drink Coffee?

Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney isn’t interested in highlighting the differences between the LDS Church and other Christians. So he holds meet-n-greets in coffee shops where no one bothers to ask what’s in the coffee mug.

Does Mitt Romney drink coffee?

2011 Update: The site MittRomneyCentral.com posted a photo of Mitt Romney at a Tampa coffee shop in front of a coffee mug. Did he drink coffee? The author of this article contacted Buddy Brew Coffee and spoke to a barista working duirng his visit. It was confirmed that Mitt Romney did not drink coffee during his visit.

Separate but Together

To a large extent the Mormon decision to not drink coffee or tea is born out of a desire to separate from the common, everyday world. Mormons separate from worldly temptations in order to be closer to God. They also separate from other Christians, Muslims, and Jews in order to bind to one another and establish identity as a group. One tangible way in which they are separate but together is through the tradition of abstaining from coffee and tea.

The occult significance if remembered accurately, (restating is NOT complete and blind belief – this is to remind any psycho-psyche DULLARD uncool people who are ready to ‘report’ ‘insane’ people . . . ) is the access to Satan’s face (lowest chakra point located) based on earlier postulations I made on this. With the aid of psychiatry and neuro suppressive drugs, various implants, control can be established by non-caffeine users against caffeine users? Perhaps tea in fact is another form of suppressant as well, NOT to be used among the working classes, and would appear to have effect on thetans? Is that why the Americans used to cut off the ears of Vietnamese? Do not use tea or coffee in the presence of the psychiatric establishment (who might be popping with psycho-active meds to increase their edge over everyone else etc..)?

1966 or should we say…19666? by  – Texe Marrs

The year 1966 was a banner year for the Prince of Darkness. Approaching the dog days of summer in that momentous year, Anton LaVey, a decadent, ex-circus entertainer, also a Jew, formally founded the Church of Satan in San Francisco. The date: June 6, 1966, or 6-6-66.

Across the nation, in New England at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, a young man spent the year 1966 in his somber new residence, the Tomb. The Tomb is a gothic, mausoleum-like stone building just off campus, adjacent to an ancient cemetery complete with Masonic tombstones, odd-shaped crypts, and what is called the “garden of the dead.”

A New Name for a Jewish Bonesman

The young man’s name was John F. Kerry (really John F. Kohn, Jewish). The Tomb, in fact, is the home of Chapter 322 of the Order of Skull & Bones, a satanic, clandestine lodge of Freemasonry first organized in 1832. Each year, fifteen (15; 1+5=6) carefully chosen young men of preferred bloodlines take up residence inside its thick walls. At their initiation into The Order, each man lies naked inside a coffin and “bonds” with his fellow bonesmen by confessing his sexual thoughts and deeds from birth. Then, each initiate is given, as a memento, a human bone with his new name “inscribed” on it.

Most of the names given the bonesmen are either pagan or else blatantly satanic. The late Averell Harriman, who went on to become Governor of New York State and U.S. Ambassador to Stalin’s USSR, was named “Thor,” after the Viking deity. Henry Luce, prime controller of Time, Life, and other publishing interests, became “Baal,” and McGeorge Bundy, foreign advisor to President Lyndon B. Johnson, was tagged “Odin.”

The senior George Bush, at his initiation into Bones, was bequeathed the revealing title, “Magog,” a name identified in the Holy Bible as a chieftain of devils who plays a key role in prophetic events. Strangely, the name given his son, George W. Bush, by the Bonesmen was “Temporary.” I wonder why?

John Kerry speaks to the vicious, anti-Christian group, the Jewish ADL, May 6, 2004. Kerry has said that, if elected President, he will send 40,000 additional troops to Iraq.

It is a certainty that Kerry will fully execute the Illuminati’s agenda to conquer all Arab oil nations and turn over the rich assets of these countries to neighboring Israel. (Order revealing audiotape report, Hidden Agenda: Ten Awful Goals of the Illuminati’s World Zionist Council; $9 postpaid; phone toll free 1-800-234-9673.)

Long Devil Takes The Lead

My sources tell me that John Kerry’s occult, Bones’ name is none other than “Long Devil.” “Long Devil!” Of course, the man’s sizeable height might account for the “Long,” but what of “Devil?” Why did the influential alumni of Skull & Bones decide on this grotesque identity for John Kerry? What did—and do—they know?

Kerry (Yale, Class of ’66) went on to serve in the U.S. Navy in Vietnam, a nation then ravaged with bloodshed and war. Though in-country only four months, young Ensign (later Lt.) John

Kerry played a part in that bloodletting. Some say his refusal to release all his military personnel records indicates Kerry’s desire to cover-up ugly war crimes he personally helped commit.

On April 22, 1971, testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a hippie-like, long-haired John Kerry, by then a civilian, told the Senators he had evidence of horrific atrocities and war crimes by Americans—soldiers, sailors, and marines—who had “personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires to human genitalia and turned up the electric power, razed villages reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, and poisoned food stocks…”

Was Kerry himself a perpetrator of some of these satanic crimes?

I use the term “satanic” advisedly, yet, that description is fitting, for truly, Satan was the mastermind behind the tortures, torments, and murders committed in Vietnam, both by Americans and by the Vietnamese.

Christianity to Vanish and Shrink

Yes, ’66 was a classic year for the old Devil. That was also the year that Beatle John Lennon assured the world that Christianity was on the way out:
“Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink… I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now.”

Lennon, McCartney, and the other Beatles promptly went over to India to worship Hindu gurus, and they introduced their gurus and other vestiges of Eastern mysticism to western culture.

All done in a haze of marijuana, LSD, and cocaine.

The Illuminati-supervised CIA helped things along. The U.S. intelligence agency put Satanist Jerry Garcia and his Grateful Dead band (Al Gore’s favorite rock group, says Rolling Stone magazine) on its payroll. The CIA, according to Gerald Heard and SRI International, distributed tons of LSD to a spaced-out youth generation. This was a mind control experiment of the Illuminati elite.

The 60s saw Hollywood’s satanic sex classic, Rosemary’s Baby, hit theaters, a movie for which Church of Satan High Priest Anton LaVey acted as a consultant. Actor John Cassavettes, who played Rosemary’s Satan-worshipping husband in the movie, also played in a role in the movie, The Dirty Dozen.

By the end of the indulgent decade of the 60s, America had borne witness to blood murder, sexual kinkiness, and other Satanic mayhem on a truly epic scale, culminating in 1969’s Manson Family murders.  Satanist Charles Manson was inspired by Anton LaVey.

Others, too, were inspired by LaVey. Famous black actor/singer Sammy Davis, Jr., became both a religious Jew and a practicing Satanist, joining LaVey’s macabre congregation of devil cultists. Blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield also joined the cult, as did scores of other Hollywood and Las Vegas types.

As far as Satan was concerned, ’66 was a very good year. Anton LaVey, a Christ-hating Jew, shown here performing a ritual with disciple, actress Jayne Mansfield, founded the Church of Satan in ’66. Meanwhile, John Kerry (Yale, Class of ’66) was enjoying the benefits of residence at The Tomb, headquarters of the Order of Skull & Bones.

But, let us again return to the subject of our essay: Long Devil, John Kerry.

Joining Hands with Mr. Chappaquiddick, Ted Kennedy

John Kerry has been, as we all know, richly rewarded for his faithfulness to Lucifer’s cause. Pretending to be an Irish Catholic, Kerry first became Massachusetts Lt. Governor, serving under a fellow occultist, super-liberal Governor Michael Dukakis. Then he joined “Mr. Chappaquiddick,” Ted (Catholic and Rosicrucian) Kennedy as a U.S. Senator, being elected from the state popularly known as The Peoples Republic of Massachusetts.

John Kerry seems to like things “Red.” Here he is sitting atop his bright, fire-red motorcycle (Insight magazine, April 13, 2004). He reportedly once took a $10,000 bribe from Johnny Chung, a lobbyist for Red China, and a Communist museum in Vietnam today proudly displays a picture of Senator John Kerry embracing Red Communist leaders. Kerry’s wife, Teresa, is a funder of numerous Red Communist causes. She originally hails from Mozambique, in Africa, a Marxist-led country. Insiders believe that during the Vietnam War, USN-Lt John Kerry aided in Operation Phoenix, whose symbol, or logo, was the red dragon!

All along, Kerry has kept his ties to various Communist front groups. At virtually every campaign stop today, you’ll see Kerry flash the old Communist clenched-fist salute, an enduring symbol of one’s devotion to Marxism/Leninism philosophy.

“Communism is Jewish,” the late Rabbi Stephen Wise proudly proclaimed. Indeed, Gus Hall, the man honored as the Chairman of the Soviet-funded Communist Party U.S.A. for so long, was a Jew. Like Kerry, he had changed his name to hide his Jewish race.

Comrade John Kerry frequently gives the Communist clenched-fist salute. The late Bella Abzug, Communist Congresswoman from New York and feminist gal-pal of Hillary Clinton, also loved displaying the Leninist/Stalinist salute.

The Lubavitchers and Kerry

Kerry’s brother, Cameron, is likewise a Jew, and proud of it. Recently, he marched side-by-side with a leader of the Lubavitcher sect in New York City. The occasion was the “Israel Day

Parade.” The Lubavitchers are a radical Jewish Orthodox sect. Many of them believe their late fuhrer, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, will rise from the dead to become the Jewish Messiah, Dictator of the World. They affectionately call Schneerson their “Rebbe.”

Cameron Kerry (right) sporting a “Pro-Israel, Pro-Kerry” t-shirt, attends an Israel Day Parade with friend, Yankel Wice, influential Lubavitcher leader and lawyer for the National

Association of Jewish Legislators.

If, however, the departed Schneerson does not show in time, John Kerry, the Jews’ new hero, may be just what their Master, the devil, orders. After all, Kerry is not only Jewish, his very name, albeit covert in nature, is “Long Devil.” How very appropriate a name for the antichrist. The Lubavitchers would likely not know him as antichrist. To them, he would probably be received as their beloved “Rebbe.”

Christians to Have Heads Chopped Off

The antichrist, the Bible prophesies in Revelation 13, “will make war against the saints” of God. He will have Christians and other resisters to his New World Order beheaded, say the scriptures.

Not surprisingly, the Lubavitchers—and many other Jewish groups—are big advocates of the Noahide Laws. They once actually got President George H.W. Bush (the senior Bush) and the U.S.

Senate to pass a resolution praising both their beloved Rebbe, Menachem M. Schneerson, and the Noahide Laws. And what, do tell, do the Noahide Laws say?

Well for one thing, the Noahide Laws require all Gentiles (Yes, Gentiles) to be “righteous.” Being righteous is defined as not worshipping idols. And Jesus is declared in the Talmud to be an idol!

In summary, under the Noahide Laws, all Christians who worship Jesus Christ are idolaters and will be duly punished by beheading!

Shouldn’t John Kerry’s Jewish brother, Cameron Kerry, a lawyer and pro-Israel activist and fanatic, be asked about his association with the Lubavitchers and other Jewish Talmudists?

Especially in light of Cameron Kerry’s recent trips to Israel, where he was wined and dined by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the bloodthirsty Butcher of Lebanon?

WESTERN CULTURE AND SOCIETY :  THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) – American Religion

RELIGION IN AMERICA:

The United States is a country of many religions. The first words of the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution say: “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Therefore, state does not establish, or endorse, or favor a particular form of religion and citizens are free to practice the religion they choose.

This tradition of religious freedom runs deep in America. Many of this nation’s early settlers were religious communities fleeing persecution in Europe; they were seeking a place where they could practice their own religion far from the state-sanctioned religions of their native countries.

America supports over 2000 different religious denominations, and in which more than 60 percent of the citizens can be found at least once a month in one of the almost 500,000 churches, temples and mosques.

Islam is considered one of the fastest-growing religions in the United States today. There are over 1,200 mosques in the United States – more than 60 percent founded in the last 20 years. The typical American mosque is ethnically diverse; nearly 90 percent have some Asian, African-American, and Arab members.

Early in their history, Americans rejected the concept of the established or government-favored religion that had dominated, and divided, so many European countries.

One of the first permanent settlements in what became the North American colonies was founded by English Puritans, Calvinists who had been outsiders in their homeland, where the Church of England was established. The Puritans settled in Massachusetts, where they grew and prospered.

The state of Rhode Island, is well known as a place where everyone enjoyed religious freedom throughout history. Two other states originated as havens for people being persecuted for their religious beliefs: Maryland as a refuge for Catholics and Pennsylvania for the Society of Friends (Quakers), a Protestant group whose members believe in plain living.

Even after the adoption of the Constitution in 1787 and the Bill of Rights (which includes the First Amendment) in 1791, Protestantism continued to enjoy a favored status in some states.

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) were jailed in the 19th century for practicing polygamy (subsequently the Mormon Church withdrew its sanction of polygamy). More recently, parents have been convicted of criminal negligence for refusing to obtain medical help for their ailing children, who went on to die, even though the parents’ religious beliefs dictated that they refuse treatment because faith would provide a cure.

PROTESTANTS:

Liberal American Protestantism in the 19th century was allied with similar trends in Europe, where scholars were reading and interpreting the Bible in a new way. They questioned the validity of biblical miracles and traditional beliefs about the authorship of biblical books. There was also the challenge of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution to contend with. If human beings were descended from other animals, as most scientists came to believe, then the story of Adam and Eve, the biblical first parents, could not be literally true.

What distinguished 19th-century liberal Protestants from their 20th-century counterparts was optimism about the human capacity for improvement. Some of the early ministers believed that the church could accelerate progress by trying to reform society. In the spirit of the gospels, they began to work on behalf of the urban poor. Today’s liberal clergymen — not just Protestants but Catholics and others, too — may be less convinced that progress is inevitable, but many of them have continued their efforts on behalf of the poor by managing shelters for homeless people, feeding the hungry, running day-care centers for children, and speaking out on social issues.

Evangelical Christians favor an impassioned, participatory approach to religion, and their services are often highly charged, with group singing and dramatic sermons that evoke spirited responses from the congregation. The South, in particular, became a bastion of this “old-time religion,” and the conservative Baptist church is very influential in that region. In recent decades some preachers have taken their ministry to television, preaching as “televangelists” to large audiences.

The trend toward removing religious teaching and practices from public schools has prompted some parents to send their children to religious schools and others to educate their children at home.

CATHOLICS AND RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS:

By the time of the Civil War, over one million Irish Catholics had come to the United States. In a majority Protestant country, they and Catholics of other backgrounds were subjected to prejudice.

Although Catholics were never denied access to public schools or hospitals, beginning in the 19th century they built institutions of their own, which met accepted standards while observing the tenets of Catholic belief and morality. On the other hand, the Catholic Church does not require its members to go to church-run institutions. Many Catholic students attend public schools and secular colleges. But Catholic schools still educate many Catholic young people, as well as a growing number of non-Catholics, whose parents are attracted by the discipline and quality of instruction.

JEWISH FAITHS:

Like Catholics, Jews were a small minority in the first years of the American republic. Until the late 19th century, most Jews in America were of German origin. Anti-Jewish prejudice was not a big problem before the Civil War. But when Jews began coming to America in great numbers, anti-Jewish groups appeared.

Usually, Jewish children attended public schools and took religious instruction in special Hebrew schools. The children of Jewish immigrants moved rapidly into the professions and into American universities, where many became intellectual leaders.

To combat prejudice and discrimination, Jews formed the B’nai Brith Anti-Defamation League, which has played a major role in educating Americans about the injustice of prejudice and making them aware of the rights, not only of Jews, but of all minorities.

By the 1950s Americans were described as coming in three basic varieties — Protestant, Catholic, and Jew. The order reflects the numerical strength of each group: In the 1990 census, Protestants of all denominations numbered 140 million; Catholics, 62 million; and Jews, 5 million.

Today the three-faith formula is obsolete. The Islamic faith also has 5 million, Buddhism and Hinduism are growing with the arrival of immigrants from countries where these are the majority religions. In some cases, inner-city Christian churches whose congregations have moved to the suburbs have sold their buildings to Buddhists, who have refitted them to suit their practices.

ALTERNATIVE RELIGIONS:

America has been a fertile ground for new religions. The Mormon and Christian Science Churches are perhaps the best-known of the faiths that have sprung up on American soil. Because of its tradition of noninterference in religious matters, the United States has also provided a comfortable home for many small sects from overseas. The Amish, for example, descendants of German immigrants who reside mostly in Pennsylvania and neighboring states, have lived simple lives, wearing plain clothes and shunning modern technology, for generations.

Some small groups are considered to be religious cults because they profess extremist beliefs and tend to glorify a founding figure. As long as cults and their members abide by the law, they are generally left alone. Religious prejudice is rare in America, and interfaith meetings and cooperation are commonplace.

Most Americans think religion is a personal matter not usually discussed in everyday conversation. The vast majority practice their faith quietly in whatever manner they choose — as members of one of the traditional religious denominations, as participants in nondenominational congregations, or as individuals who join no organized group. However Americans choose to exercise their faith, they are a spiritual people. Nine out of ten Americans express some religious preference.

WHAT IS A CULT?

The term “cult” is used to describe certain religious groups outside of the mainstream of Western religion. Social scientists divide religious groups into three categories: churches, sects, and cults.

“Churches” are the large denominations with an inclusive approach to life and include such groups as the Roman Catholic Church, the United Methodist Church, the American Baptist Church, the United Church of Christ and the Protestant Episcopal Church.

“Sects” are groups that have broken away from the main church. Sects follow the same pattern as mainstream religion but are more strict in behavioral demands placed upon members and emphasize their separation and distinctiveness from the larger culture.

“Cults” follow a very different religious structure. When social scientists began their discussion of cults in the 1920s, they were aware of only a few cult groups. A survey of religion in America (1949) listed twenty-seven cults.

The Christian approach to cults would include every group which has departed from orthodox Christianity (such as the Church of Christ, Scientist, the Latter Day Saints, and the Jehovah’s Witnesses) as well as those groups which have never made any claim to be Christian.

More recently there have been many debates on cults since the 1970s. The debates involved speaking to parents of people who were concerned with changes in their sons and daughters who had joined particular religious groups. These “cults”–The Children of God, the Church of Armageddon, the Unification Church, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, and the Church of Scientology–had, they claimed, radically altered the personality of their children.

Anti-cult groups began to speak of “destructive cults,” groups which hypnotized or brainwashed recruits, destroyed their ability to make rational judgments and turned them into slaves of the group’s leader. Marcia Rudin, a popular anti-cult writer, listed fourteen commonly accepted characteristics of a cult:

Members swear total allegiance to an all-powerful leader who they believe to be the Messiah.
Rational thought is discouraged or forbidden.
The cult’s recruitment techniques are often deceptive.
The cult weakens the follower psychologically by making him or her depend upon the group to solve his or her problems.
The cults manipulate guilt to their advantage.
The cult leader makes all the career and life decision of the members.
Cults exist only for their own material survival and make false promises to work to improve society.
Cult members often work fulltime for the group for little or no pay.
Cult members are isolated from the outside world and any reality testing it could provide.
Cults are antiwoman, antichild, and antifamily.
Cults are apocalyptic and believe themselves to be the remnant who will survive the soon-approaching end of the world.
Many cults follow an “ends justify the means” philosophy.
Cults, particularly in regard to their finances, are shrouded in secrecy.
There is frequently an aura of or potential for violence around cults.

Anti-cult literature reflects a great concern with approximately 15 groups, though as many as 75 to 100 have received passing mention. Only five groups–the Unification Church, the Children of God, the Church of Scientology, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, and The Way International–have received consistent coverage over the years of the anti-cult movement’s existence. Everyone who has looked at the cults agrees that the number of alternative religious groups has grown significantly during the twentieth century.

Only a few of the older cults–the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints–have attained a broad membership throughout the nation. Of those groups formed in the twentieth century, only a few, such as the American Muslim Mission (found in 1930), can count their membership in the tens of thousands. The more famous of the contemporary cults, such as the Unification Church (with 5,000 to 7,000 members) or the Hare Krishna (with approximately 2,500 initiated members), can count their membership in the thousands.

The large immigration of Asians in the last half of the nineteenth century brought the first Buddhist and Hindu teachers to the United States and threatened many West Coast residents. California could have become like Hawaii, which is one third Buddhist

The nonconventional religions also vary widely in their recruitment processes. Some, particularly those with Evangelical Christian roots (and a few which are Eastern, but reacting to Christian missionary activity) have an aggressive program of membership enlistment. Most others rely upon the distribution of literature or the sponsoring of introductory classes to which a potential convert must make the initial effort and attend.

Life in a Cult – Once a person joins a nonconventional religious group, he or she must begin to adapt to group life. New recruits will go through a program of education in group beliefs and practices.

Evangelical Christianity has been the mainstream of religion in America. In its attempts to be true to traditional Protestant Christian affirmations, it has been among the most conservative of religious forces and has commanded the largest segment of the religious public.

THE ANTI-CULT MOVEMENT:

The Problem of Religion: During the 1970s several trends in American religion came together. Since the American Revolution, this country has been shaken by periods of social protest followed by national religious revivals in which the entire population, regardless of religious affiliation, gave a heightened attention to religious concerns. During such periods, new and alternative religions have been born or given surges of growth while the more traditional churches reaped the bulk of the harvest. Such a national revival occurred in the early 1970s on the heels of the social protests of the 1960s.

The first anticult association was called the Parents’ Committee to Free Our Children from the Children of God (later shortened to “Free the Children of God,” and popularly called “FREECOG”).

From its beginning, the anticult movement focused upon a single problem, the distress of parents whose young adult sons and daughters (to whom the literature typically refers as “children” regardless of age) had abandoned home, career, college, and a “normal” future for membership in a demanding nonconventional religion (i.e., a cult).

The anti-cult movement can point to one clear success. In its first decade of activity it has impressed upon the popular consciousness a negative image of cults. The media gave the anti-cult movement widespread coverage in both magazines and newspapers, which have featured accounts of life in and out of the cults by former members.

CHURCH OF CHRIST, SCIENTIST:

Because of its espousal of spiritual healing and its affirmation that Christian Science is incompatible with reliance upon materia medica, the Church of Christ, Scientist has been one of the most important of the nonconventional religions in America as well as a matter of intense controversy from the day of its founding.

The Church of Christ, Scientist was founded by Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1919) who as a young woman had been continually hobbled with poor health. In 1862 she learned of Dr. Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, a mental healer in Portland, Maine. In October of that year she traveled to Portland and placed herself under his care. She soon experienced some relief of her symptoms which she ascribed to his efforts. She became his student and took the opportunity, when offered, to pass them on to others.

THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON):

The most successful of the many groups which have been labeled “cult”, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has over two million members and dominates the religious life of the Rocky Mountain area from Boise, Idaho, to Phoenix, Arizona. Started in the early nineteenth century, it has grown steadily worldwide.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, popularly called the Mormons, was founded by Joseph Smith, Jr. (born December 23, 1805 in Sharon, Vermont). As a youth, Smith had moved from Vermont to western New York, near the town of Palmyra.

In 1839 the Mormons established the community at Nauvoo, Illinois which soon grew into the largest city in the state. A new temple was begun, and the Church entered a growth phase. During this period the first of the European mission efforts (later a major source of members) was launched.

They introduced the practice of polygamy and began by setting an example for the other Church leaders. The exact number of Smith’s plural wives is still a matter of conjecture (estimates range from 27 to 84), but there is little doubt that polygamy caused immense problems for the Church.

In 1852 they announced the practice of plural marriage as public doctrine and began a battle with the United States government that was to last for the rest of the century. In 1862 the first federal anti-polygamy bill was passed, and efforts were increased to prevent its practice. These efforts were strengthened in 1882 with the passage of the Edmunds Bill, which disenfranchised all people living in polygamy, and the 5-member Utah Commission established to enforce the provisions.

During the twentieth century polygamy was eradicated from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but it continued in Mormon territory, especially in Mexico where it was not illegal. A large Fundamentalist (polygamy-practicing community) still exists in the Western United States and Northern Mexico.

Members of the church are expected to refrain from the use of tea, coffee, tobacco, and alcohol.

JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES:

Jehovah’s Witnesses are interested in you and your welfare. They want to be your friends and to tell you more about themselves, their beliefs, their organization, and how they feel about people and the world in which all of us live.

The name Jehovah appears almost 7,000 times in the original Hebrew Scriptures. Most Bibles do not show it as such but substitute “God” or “Lord” for it.

In just a century and a half the Seventh-day Adventist Church has grown from a handful of individuals, who carefully studied the Bible in their search for truth, to a world-wide community of over eight million members and millions of others who regard the Adventist Church their spiritual home. The name “Seventh-day Adventist” was chosen in 1860.

A load of codswallop! Labour MP’s astonishing outburst at plan to rename Big Ben tower for the Queen – a ‘fifth-generation German’ – by Simon Walters And Brendan Carlin – PUBLISHED: 02:07 GMT, 25 March 2012 | UPDATED: 11:58 GMT, 25 March 2012

Outburst: Ex-miner Ronnie Campbell MP described the Queen as a ‘fifth generation German’

A left-wing Labour MP last night launched a campaign to stop Big Ben tower being renamed the Elizabeth Tower in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Ex-miner Ronnie Campbell said he resented being ‘ruled over by fifth-generation Germans who changed their name from Battenberg to Windsor’.

The anti-monarchist denounced a plan backed by Tory Sir Malcolm Rifkind and Labour’s Jack Straw to rename  the tower containing Big Ben the Elizabeth Tower as ‘a load of  codswallop’.

The MP for Blyth Valley in Northumberland said: ‘I don’t think the Queen would want it. She is probably embarrassed.

These MPs are only doing it to suck up to her. Big Ben has always been known as  Big Ben and always will be. It is ludicrous to change it.

‘It would be much better to rename Heathrow Airport or the new London skyscraper, The Shard, after her. At least they have been built in her lifetime: Big Ben is older than she is.’

PM chimes in to back calls to rename Big Ben landmark Elizabeth Tower after the Queen

The tower’s official name is the Clock Tower, but it is known universally as Big Ben, the nickname of its bell.

Praise: Despite his anti-Royal views Mr Campbell said now was not the time to abolish the Monarchy, because the Queen was ‘a nice lady’

A lesser-known tower, completed in 1860, was named the Victoria Tower in honour of Queen Victoria.

Time for change? Big Ben may be renamed the Elizabeth Tower

Mr Campbell said: ‘Every socialist bone in my body tells me we should abolish the Monarchy as an outdated institution that nurtures a class  system based on birth, not worth.

‘Why should we be ruled over by families descended from robber  barons, bandits and illegitimate heirs?

‘Or, in the case of the current lot, fifth-generation Germans who changed their name from Battenberg to Windsor during the First World War.’

Mr Campbell also said the Queen had ‘no right to lord it’ over ordinary working-class people like him.

‘I bend my knee to no one,’ he continued. ‘Without the Monarchy, there would be no aristocrats owning vast swathes of our green and pleasant land simply because their ancestors stole it from the previous occupants.’

Mr Campbell claimed his own  family of miners had done more for Britain than the Queen.

‘It is a better legacy than waving from cars and opening Parliament while wearing a heavy crown,’ he said.

But despite his anti-Royal views, now was not the time to abolish the Monarchy, Mr Campbell said, because the Queen was ‘a nice lady’.

But despite his anti-Royal views . . . because the Queen was ‘a nice lady’. . . . (this is a ‘u-turn’ type of article, draw’em in, key’em up then make a sudden u-turn – right at the end in this case. Wow DM how pro-Tory though semi subtle can DM get? The sod just expressed support of the Queen DM, though the title condemns on their behalf. Please report honestly instead of being manipulative, or DM will be insulting the intelligence with all this pro-royal propaganda! NLP closing statement alert!

Germany and France backed by a NORMALIZED and transparent 4th Reich, and a neo-Imperial Frankish Imperator via the EU, should just revive Charlemagne’s Lion Throne (Imperial Capital at Aachen, with vassal Kings in Spain, France and Germany? Africa would be pleased to provide REAL Lions, or would the EU prefer to cast replicas in solid gold for effect as well . . . heck have both . . . would convert a whole lot of weak minded ‘Sand N1ggers’ and ‘Gooks’ to Xianity (if Germany’s neo-paganiss do not dominate the religious scene – Paganism btw is more PC than Xianity) at once . . . WH40K! Emperors don’t die, but become more than the living . . . their children’s iniquities or inaccuracies being punished accordingly, those able to hear would doubtless fight on – in this case for the EU.

. . . though PC EU would probably ferret out those who were victims of proselytization (also what would the neo-nazis and Templars say???) and declare England a mere colony and abolish the monarchy for the English since they need ‘codswallopers’ like Mr.Campbell to throw semi-obvious counter-counter propaganda [ . . . ] those gemstones mentioned earlier would also be returned to the rightful owners [ . . . ] . But would the PC Germans consider the original inhabitants, Irish, Scots and Welsh as the original sovereigns rather than the 5th generation German who waged war AGAINST Germany the motherland in WWII? And if not under consideration for TREASON against Europe, what does the south-eastern portion of the North Atlantic Isles (England), represent but a Barony (see note 1) comprising East Wessex up to South Anglia (North Anglia being Danish territory though originally Scottish) at most?

Image

Note 1
– Considering that England is only less than one quarter the size of India or the EU
– if India and EU were proper Kingdoms
– Africa and Russia would be true Empire size, China, Europe and Old Rome (the planetary/Archon worshippers under the Legions) barely making the size requirement

– England unless with every other ethnic group’s territory (with Wales, Scotland and Ireland all brutally colonized, probably not considering the German link through the Angle conquest later but maybe under EU auspices, only if those 3 kingdoms want to)
– England on their own (East wessex to South Anglia) would be a Barony.

The long passed Charlemagne would never have allowed a claim of Royal title ahead of a Throneless heart of the EU European Empire and probably led to this inspired backlash. Doubtless the greatest among that era would not tolerate a smaller area led by one of his distant scions to ATTACK Germany (how could they?). Claim sovereignty over what that one still considers sovereign territory via the EU.

Germany and France doubtless will benefit much from close consideration of what Charlemagne would have thought and reinstatement of the Frankish Empire under Constitutional Monarchy (what else is the Western portion of EU after all??? A spiritual continuation of France, Germany and Spain, being vassal Kings under a Frankish Emperor probably to match and equal what the Commonwealth or whats left of the Commonwealth is . . .).

Image

England being quite un-PC though always acting as if England was PC,  and not suitably sized to warrant a kingdom title (size wise Charlemagne would never allow the use of the Royal title by such a small territory, even the whole of the Atlantic Isles would probably be a Duchy at most), the English have been so insulting and ‘British’ for so long, that no unity could really count, could under EU, after straigtening out the sovereignty issues with the Triple Crown (of Ireland, Wales and Scotland), re-formalise itself as an independent Barony based from East Wessex to South Anglia region which pledges allegiance to the Imperial Capital of Aachen in Germany (after all the Battenburgs are 5th generation Germans so why keep up the creepy name 1917 change to ‘Windsor’ from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha – thats the REAL name of the ‘English’ Royals btw – pretense, might as well revive House Hanover (truly the last pure English line) as the apex English family which is 100% English pureblood . . . ) with that royal title reduced to one of nobility at most.

The NWO needs reshuffling, the head of EU being a FRANKISH pure blood European from Charlemagne’s Merovingian line if still traceable. EU should also reinstate Old Frankish as the EU’s national and court language, and DROP English which belongs in a small south-eastern corner (much like the Balkans perhaps?) of the North Atlantic Isles as a local dialect instead. Russia, Africa, India and China, could start learning Old Frankish instead of English here on. The other nations worldwide should also learn this language of a potential future Imperial European Court. (Hitler may have been Charlemagne reborn who knows, but society, life experiences and upbringing did not contribute well to the expression of the conquering instinct . . . that and France was no longer close to Germany at that point . . . ). EU is the European (perhaps Imperial European) revival after all with England a vassal fief at very most. The trappings are waiting to be formalized with the re-Imperialisation of Aachen . . . this one’s for good side of Anders Breivik (the Fifth Columnist Outer Breivik, not the Fifth Columnist Killer Breivik . . .) and the good side of Hitler (the Nazi franchise Hitler, not the Nazi-Auswitch Hitler . . .). . . depending on how EU fares, those considered mad in this sick era could true champions be, in a revival . . .

Sultan: Set aside political differences – Friday, 23 March 2012 17:45

SHAH ALAM- The Sultan of Selangor on Monday advised all state lawmakers, regardless of political affiliation, to cooperate with the state administration for the sake of the people’s welfare.

“Political differences shouldn’t be a barrier (for any assemblyperson) to assist the state in (carrying out) measures that would benefit the people,” said Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah when opening the state assembly.

He reminded the elected representatives to put the people’s and state interests before party interest.

He added that lawmakers play a key role in scrutinising policies and programmes to ensure they have a positive impact for both people and the state.

The Sultan also advised lawmakers to debate intellectually, not emotionally, and to voice out the views of the people in the House.

“Every matter (debated in the House) should be judged wisely and fairly, based on the merits and substance of the proposal itself, not just the person who made it,” he said.

He praised the state for achieving 5.9 per cent gross domestic product (GDP) growth last year and attracting RM8.74 billion investments.

However, the Sultan also reminded the Selangor government to protect the state’s forest reserves, water catchment areas and river reserves.

“Encroachment must be eradicated and approval shouldn’t be given for development projects in these areas,” he said in his address.

Finally, the Sultan also cautioned the state to preserve Malay reserve land and prevent it from being transferred to non-Malay individuals or companies.

“Every matter (debated in the House) should be judged wisely and fairly, based on the merits and substance of the proposal itself, not just the person who made it,” the Sultan said.

How does the below sound to the Sultan? Someone who has the ear of the Sultan needs to stress how important the below 3 items are :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 of the UNHCR, non-Asabiya in Islam, non-“Al-Fitrah”)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 of the UNHCR, Qur’an 2:256 “let there be no compulsion in religion)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

Would never do to claim double standards against you-know-who, but for certain the 3 items are already well known to the Sultan. Why is this institution being so oblique if not obtuse?

Political differences shouldn’t be a barrier for any assemblyperson to assist the state in carrying on measures that would benefit the people,” but should the state not act as required per the state’s responsibility to remove any such remaining political differences?

The dual system of citizenships based on race and face doubtless make carrying out any measures to benefit the people more difficult. Would be unconscionable for the state to continue these political differences? Tacit approval by inaction only weakens the right and voice of those who should act at a considerate pace. The dual system of citizenships (aka non-Bumi / Bumi) based on race and faith, doubtless make carrying out any measures to benefit the people more difficult.

If the petitioned will not bend to the truth, (do not wait till) then the truth bends the petitioned. The socio-political fallout of this Bumi /non-Bumi divide is very serious as of now, and cannot be ignored. Let Malaysia adhere to what being a signatory of UNHCR Article 1 requires, and consider the disenfranchisement of non-Muslim and non-Malay citizens who have always been forthcoming and supportive of the institution that keeps Malaysian flaws uncorrected. Act in the interest of humanity, be Royalty to all men not just men of your own ethnicity or own faith. Continued neglect to address these issues is unconscionable.

Sultan Idris said set aside political differences via Article 1 of the UNHCR. Well The best way to to this is to end apartheid. Religious difference can also be ended but this will need Article 18 of the UNHCR. Who better than the Royal Collective of Malaysian Princes to make the initiative? We’re not waiting for a 10,000 B.C. (2008 Roland Emmerich) or Arab Spring now are we? These are basic human rights elucidated in the UNHCR, shall we all leave the 3rd World status behind from here on . . .

“AND WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU (you here refers to any formally converted Muslim person) THAT YOU (you here refers to any any formally converted Muslim person who has consensually in full awareness and without coercion and in free will embraced that faith)  FIGHT NOT IN THE CAUSE OF ALLAH, AND FOR THOSE WEAK , ILL TREATED AND OPPRESSED AMONG MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN, WHOSE CRY IS: “OUR LORD! RESCUE US FROM THIS TOWN WHOSE PEOPLE ARE OPPRESSORS; AND RAISE FOR US FROM YOU ONE WHO WILL PROTECT, AND RAISE FOR US FROM YOU (you here refers to any formally converted Muslim person) ONE (one here refers to any formally converted Muslim person who has consensually in full awareness and without coercion and in free will embraced that faith) WHO WILL HELP.” SURAH AN-NISA -verse 75

“THE ONE WHO WORKS FOR ASABIYA, CALLS FOR ASABIYA OR FIGHTS FOR ASABIYA IS NOT ONE OF US….AND HE IS LIKE THE (censored in case of lese majeste) WHO LIVES IN (censored in case of lese majeste)“.

As this Asabiyyah declines, another more compelling Asabiyyah may take its place; thus, civilizations rise and fall, and history describes these cycles of Asabiyyah as they play out. – Ibn Khaldun, Tunisian Ruler and Historiographer.

LA council wants to keep airwaves ‘crack ho’ free

The Los Angeles City Council passes a resolution asking Clear Channel to end racist and offensive remarks. Kim Baldonado reports.
By NbcLosAngeles.com and msnbc.com news services

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles City Council members called on TV and radio broadcasters to keep their hosts from spewing crude slurs, citing KFI radio calling Whitney Houston a “crack ho.”

The council voted 13-2 on Wednesday for a resolution urging Los Angeles stations to do “everything in their power to ensure that their on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs over public airwaves.”

The resolution stems from comments made by KFI talk show hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou of the “John and Ken Show” who, three days after Whitney Houston died, referred to the pop music icon as a “crack ho.”

Read NBCLosAngeles.com’s coverage of council’s mission to cut racist remarks

“It is easy to become desensitized to what other groups find intolerable which ultimately fosters an environment where negative comments can go unchecked and corporate guidelines and policies are no longer being enforced,” the resolution stated.

The resolution also states that it important for stations to hire more women and minorities.

The measure is a symbolic stance and has no legal force. However, council members argued that it was proper for the ethnically diverse city to speak out against what they called hate speech.

Government has no right to suppress “hateful, vile, despicable speech” but society should not tolerate it, Councilman Paul Krekorian said. “We can drown out that hatred with a loud chorus.”

The measure was sponsored by three black council members and supported by civil rights and minority media groups. It was broadened after originally naming only KFI-AM and its owner, Clear Channel, which carries Rush Limbaugh and owns hundreds of stations nationwide.

The comments led to a public outcry, a seven-day suspension for the hosts and a public apology.

“They brought Latinos, African Americans, native Americans, women’s groups — everyone together around this particular issue,” said Jasmyne Cannick, of the Black Media Alliance, who urged the council to pass the resolution.

Station officials have promised to diversify their staff and add more minority hosts at the station where conservative hosts often rail against taxes and illegal immigration.

Clear Channel Los Angeles and KFI responded with the following: We “support the LA City Council resolution regarding the need for diversity of personnel, inclusionary programming, and appropriate on-air language across all media.”

The resolution also cited recent remarks by Limbaugh. Limbaugh called law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a prostitute who wanted the government to subsidize her sex life after she urged lawmakers to consider the importance of contraception coverage in their discussion of national health care policy. He later apologized after several sponsors dropped his show.

The station has 1.5 million listeners during any given weekday.

Radio stations that use such terms are the 24 hour cheap beer pubs of the airwaves. Surely censorship cannot be applied here? There will be a demographic that likes the crass or in your face at times, if every thing (including speech – remember free speech and those who don’t want to hear expletives can boycott the channel, only a dictatorship would write laws or penalise for free speech . . . ) is gentrified including use of ‘harsh language’ what will happen to America’s democratic tradition? This is free speech being stopped here! If they want to offend some listeners, those listeners will just change channels and be matured enough to accept their ‘practices’ much like Burkha wearers (where France totally fail . . . did France lose that sense of Liberty which the Statue of Liberty represents? Giving (America) a symbol of Liberty does not mean liberty ends back home (in France) . . . ).

Porn industry to Rick Santorum: Butt out – Nick Ut / AP file – Hustler magazine magnate Larry Flynt says there’s no evidence porn is harmful. – by James Eng, msnbc.com

The porn industry has an X-rated reaction to Rick Santorum’s vow to crack down on pornography if he’s elected president: Butt out.

Two giants in the industry contacted by msnbc.com scoff at the Republican presidential candidate’s claims that porn is causing “a pandemic of harm” in America and contributing to violence against women.

Nonsense, says Hustler publisher Larry Flynt.  Absolutely no proof, says Steven Hirsch, founder and co-chairman of Los Angeles-based Vivid Entertainment, one of the largest makers of erotic movies.

Flynt notes that a 1969 commission set up by President Lyndon Johnson spent millions of dollars studying the impact of porn and concluded there was no evidence such materials were harmful.

“You have guys like Santorum come along and they bring out the bogeyman every chance they get,” Flynt said. “You will be hard-pressed to find anyone that can point out to you a study that shows harm is caused to anyone exposed to porn materials.”

“I find it ironic that Republicans (like Santorum) are out there wanting less government and government intruding into our lives, but when it comes to moral issues they want government to legislate morality,” says Hirsch. “It doesn’t work. It will never work.”

Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator who is trying to woo social conservatives, says on his presidential campaign website that if elected he will hire an attorney general who will “vigorously” enforce federal obscenity laws curtailing distribution of hardcore porn.

He also says that studies have shown porn causes brain changes in adults and children, and that every family should be concerned about its harmful effects.

Santorum says he would enforce US obscenity laws that Obama ignores

The little-discussed position paper made the Internet rounds after The Daily Caller published a column this week calling attention to it.

Though Santorum rattles off a list of social harms that he says is caused by porn, he doesn’t specifically call for a ban on all porn in his website statement. Instead, he says, he’s most concerned about exposure to “hardcore” porn.

“While the Obama Department of Justice seems to favor pornographers over children and families, that will change under a Santorum Administration,” he writes.

Hirsch says a crackdown by the attorney general won’t work.

“We’ve seen that before. John Ashcroft was that guy. Edwin Meese was that guy. They can prosecute but ultimately it’s juries that decide what is and isn’t obscene,” Hirsch says. “Over last 20 years there have been very, very few obscenity convictions.”

Hirsch suggests making a deal with Santorum: “We will stay out of his church, and he will stay out of our bedrooms.”

Santorum says he backs the efforts of the War on Illegal Pornography coalition, which is lobbying Congress, 2012 political candidates and the government to crack down on what it describes as “the growing amount of hardcore pornography available in America.”

Santorum isn’t the first presidential candidate to vow to target porn.

Former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann went further than Santorum. She signed a pledge vowing to support a constitutional amendment to ban all pornography and same-sex marriage.

Do we need tougher enforcement of laws regulating hardcore porn?

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

There should be a list that allows people to check if others are using porn, BUT the checkee immediately is informed by the checker.

So the choice to find out if someone known to the user – presumably to be as insular and choosey in friendships – will result in being ‘outed’ as a FUNDO, and in turn be subject to reverse judgment by the checkee. This should be fair – the would be ‘checkers’ (Chubby? <JK>) should then decide if they want to lose another person from their list of friends (or voters) before checking that ‘sex offenders’ list (or passing a law that prohibits porn).

The extreme cases will doubtless be like Santorum who will choose and pick their friends by whether or not they use porn (will check and un-friend SIMPLY for watching pron no less . . . ), and further discriminate against porn users by preventing people from viewing or buying ‘porny’ things they like – none of anyone’s business what anyone else does in private or in premises or districts for these purposes with like minded individuals, how can such a law be passed in a democracy? Fundo alert!

Now we all know that the more plural minded a president, the safer for every demographic, so make your own conclusions where Santorum belongs, in a goody 2 shoes parents category (of people old enough to be Santorum’s parents or Santorum presuming to be a parent to people who are not even Santorum’s children) or someone borderline psycho – ‘anti-Voltaire Syndrome’ or Spanish Inquisitor type person.

By opting to REMOVE all rights to negative freedoms like porn or red light districts from all other Americans, what you get is a PROTESTANT Ayatollah or Grand Mufti in Xian guise. There are already 3 Popes and 1 English Archbishop, the spirit of Protestantism wouldn’t even make room for morality based ‘edicts like this much less this ‘harmonize differences’ between differing sects and Santorum wants to impose these morality slanted views on porn on everyone else in a secular democratic government? What was suggested, could only be from someone who has a Theocracy in mind.

Meanwhile, the 3 top guys in the porn industry should get together. Hugh Hefner for a photo op with Larry Flynt, Bob Guccione would be perfect in a group photo, but moi was suffering too much in 3rd world land to get you 3 alpha male industry guys together before Bob passed on. Maybe Bob Guccione Jr. could pose in place? Establish a ‘Trifecta club’ (featuring 3 annexes?) or some such in the major RLDs of the world, sorry to hear the Playboy LV club is closing too . . . can’t think of any other major players here, if you are, turn up and start franchising internationally, start funding pro-subculture people in the worst of the 3rd world than letting would be champions of free speech and freedom of choice be trampled by fundos for simply seeking their own spaces, use ano0nymous proxies or whatever, people are ‘dying’ out here . . .

The Tyranny of Titty – by Henry Makow Ph.D. – March 18, 2012

“So long as the love, even the smallest, of man toward woman is not destroyed, so long is his mind in bondage as the calf that drinks milk is to his mother.” — Buddha – by Henry Makow Ph.D. (wtf? chanelling Buddha now Makow?!?)

There is no “matrix” more onerous than the one that enslaves us to our reproductive instincts and make sexual intercourse the purpose of life.

The Illuminati (Satanic) mass media has addicted us to sex by portraying sexual dissipation as “sexual liberation.” This mental deviance is a form of satanic possession.

How many times is the Daily Mail going to try to titillate us with so-and-so’s “bikini figure?” How many times is Jay Leno going to mention sex in his monologue?

Is it humanity’s destiny to be a broken record droning on for eternity?? Is this what we were created for?

I am a champion of healthy heterosexuality: sex within the context of love, courtship, marriage and family.

But heterosexuality has been degraded to the level of pornography.

A woman on Salon Personals advertises: “Q: Why should you get to know me? A: My mind is as dirty as subway platform.”

That’s Satanism, where ugly becomes beautiful and viceversa.

A 22-year-old Swedish man writes: “Most of my friends see women as the holy grail. Pretty much their whole existence is based around “getting laid”. Its like we are devolving into animals. Maybe that is their goal. And if you’re not getting women, you are a loser…”

The media gives young men a hugely exaggerated view of the benefits a woman offers.This becomes an obstacle as he puts them on a pedestal and immediately loses their respect. These days women are too confused to know anything. The young man has to make the decisions but the women won’t let him. Heterosexuality has been subverted and natural development arrested.

BRAINWASHING

When are men (and women) going to admit that we have been hypnotized?

Anonymous sex is degrading. not pleasurable. Promiscuous women are not attractive. Feminine beauty is a function of purity and innocence

How often are women going to undress until men no longer care? They have seen it so many times. How often can women unwrap the same old gift?

Sex divorced from love is an empty, dehumanizing experience. Breasts become weapons of war, not love. They don’t carry the milk of life. They are filled with silicon. Death.

Society’s idealization of the fertile female is not normal. It is sycophantic, primitive and pagan —  Cabalist Magick,  i.e. brainwashing.

Ladies, show us something we haven’t seen in some time, qualities that make a woman a good wife and mother, ones that differentiate you from other women.

These include an ability to love a man, and children. Qualities of personality, charm, modesty, humor, taste, style, character, intelligence, homemaking skills.

In many cultures, breasts aren’t sexual at all. For example, women in Mali  go around with bare breasts. They’re always feeding their babies.

When they were told that Western men are fascinated with breasts, they burst out laughing. They laughed so hard, they fell on the floor. They said, “You mean, men act like babies?” (Carolyn Latteier, Breasts, The Women’s Perspective on an American Obsession”)

There is something decadent and senile about a society obsessed with titties.

CONCLUSION

Why is this happening? Why are we stunted at the level of adolescents?

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion (15-20) holds the answer:

20.” Our government will have the appearance of a paternal patriarchal guardianship on the part of our ruled.

They will then be so thoroughly imbued with the thought that it is impossible for them to dispense with this wardship and guidance…They will be rejoiced that we have regulated everything in their lives as is done by wise parents who desire to train children in the cause of duty and submission. For the peoples of the world …  are … only children under age, precisely as are also their governments.”

Individually and collectively, human development is being arrested at the adolescent stage.

Our Illuminati masters have a vision for humanity that excludes our higher development. We are their cattle.

There is ‘on’ time and ‘off’ time. ‘On’ time looks and feels exactly like obsession to the casual observer who does not understand, or is not into the supposed hypersexuality sub-culture, even though hypersexuality is not the case. Makow probably was purposely exposed to or happened to unluckily chance on ‘on’ to elicit this kind of article response. The NWO probably hates Makow, so don’t be taken in Makow, and spew about purity to counter a sense of invasion. The above types intend to make all who feel this way withdraw or retaliate with increasingly skewed articles resulting in articles that the Orwellian establishment or even Psyche establishment can eventually pin writers with being psychotic or paranoia or other state actionable neuroses with.

With this sort of title in an article, guess the Freudian slippage has begun? ‘ There is something decadent and senile about a society obsessed with titties . . . ‘ not unless that sort of subculture is your bag. Don’t spoil things for the kids who have not decided if they like this subculture, much like condemning a dish because the garnish was something different . . . Makow should sit back in that wood and leather interior clad club with the fogeys using ear horns, listening to grammaphones, using doily clad teaware and mouldy newspapers – let the naked hyper-bisexual ‘prostitutes’ of either (or both genders) cavort for all they want . . . to each their own, and don’t worry that ALL kids will grow up like them, there will always be insular and Tory minded kids who will always replace people like Makow.

Sexual propaganda for fuddy duddies? ‘Nice’ subculture to represent Makow, but not for everyone, and don’t preach this to simply ensure ‘freedom of thought’ and ‘freedom of choice’ . . . ya closet Tory . . . maybe a 18+ warning on your site?

‘The Time Has Come’: Ban Ki-moon’s Historic Speech on LGBT Rights … – Joseph Huff-Hannon (James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism / Livingston Award for Young Journalists) – Posted: 03/23/2012 9:44 am

On March 7, 2012, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon delivered a historic speech at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, asking countries around the world to decriminalize same-sex relationships and end discrimination against LGBT people. The speech itself attracted some coverage, but what dominated the news that day was the response by the audience: in a major breach of diplomatic protocol, several members of the council, in an obviously prearranged move, staged a coordinated walkout before the speech even began.

The message came through loud and clear: in 2012 there are still many governments around the world who take the firm stance that human rights are for some but not for all. The walkout was a stark reminder that in many places around the world, LGBT people are still demonized, criminalized, attacked, and even killed for who they are. Seventy-six countries still criminalize being gay, and 10 countries make being gay punishable by death or life imprisonment. And the enemies of equality are on the move. Russia’s second-largest city, Saint Petersburg, just passed a bill that would make it illegal to discuss homosexuality in any way, and parliaments across Africa are entertaining laws that would further penalize, and even execute, gay people.

To make sure that Ban Ki-moon’s powerful speech isn’t drowned out by the haters, my colleagues and I at AllOut.org, an LGBT equality movement with close to 1 million members in every country of the world . . .

“When someone like Ban Ki-moon speaks out, it makes a difference,” said Andre Banks, Executive Director of AllOut.org. “But only if people hear what he has to say.”

Senator: Homosexuality equals prostitution – by Ram Anand – Friday, March 23, 2012 – 15:18

KUALA LUMPUR: Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender (LBGT) lifestyles have been equated to social ills like prostitution and drug abuse by Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Mashitah Ibrahim (pic).

Responding to a question from Mohd Nizar Zakaria (Parit-BN) on steps to curb homosexuality, Mashitah said it was a “social problem”.

“The (LBGT) issue has its own after-effects, which can lead to prostitution, drug abuse, psychological problems and also mental illness. We have been raising awareness on our fatwa against LBGT tendencies with heavy media publicity on the issue to raise awareness, and also about the bad effects homosexuality has on health.”

She said it was only provided to punish Muslim offenders under Syariah laws. “But then again, no religion in this country endorses such lifestyles.”

Mashitah said Malaysia did not support freedom for the LBGT community although it was discussed at a United Nations convention last year.

“Part of the LBGT problem is caused by natural reasons, such as being born with two private parts and mental illness.”

Mashitah was non-committal when asked by Fuziah Salleh (Kuantan-PKR) if the federal government would consider giving the opposition funds to implement career-change programmes for transvestites in Pahang. “We already have such programmes, so you are welcome to join us in implementing those programmes,” she said.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Will the LGBT rights organisations and UN please help the LGBT community in Malaysia. It is likely that the Muslim and Malay segment of Malaysia will continue to suffer most, though even under outdated and non-existent laws like section 377B the minorities who are non-Muslim could also be affected if too indiscreet or outside informal zones (which have not yet been formalised as RLDs). Education of people like the above ‘statement maker’ cannot be done by sex workers or those who are Malay and Muslim, or minorities who do not even have UNHCR Article 1 rights. This work falls upon the LGBT group or groups similar with international reach, like UN type agencies. Act quickly as some of the LGBT community are being ill treated and abused by enforcement and even the religious within the psychiatric establishment.

Also this sort of discrimination towards sex work and sex workers is very distressing. There ARE consensual sex workers and adult services patrons not allowed to work in peace, who do need the legislature to ensure their adult human rights to a legal and recognized adult services industry or adult services district (red light district). The above insular ‘statement maker’ is talking without doing any research and without any empathy or understanding of other social groups not of their own. Insular and inward thinking, then authoritarian and fundamentalist to boot. Imposing on sex workers and sex industry patrons is disrespectful and deserves condemnation and re-education, is in fact a sign religion or ‘3rd world minded society’ induced mental illness, if not mental illness (hate speech crime?) per se. Will the UN and first world, please arbitate and qualify, correct these pharisees.

We won’t say it’s because of the religion so shall we just blame the narrow mindedness and desire to  impose views of ‘statement makers’ instead? Invasive and disrespectful of human rights. How about taping a response and address to the fundos in Malaysia like in the above article Sec.Gen. Ban? The dangers in Malaysia to LGBT are not direct and obvious as the worst in Africa but equally unpleasant and harmful. The abuse by the psyche establishment or religious-fundos employed against some individuals are extreme . . . Section 377B must be abolished and Article 18 in context of right to sexual association for a certain demographic here (Muslims – contradictory to be both but the politial-legal structure make this impossible to reconcile while apostasy is a worse sentence than being a minority – see Lina Joy case – and Malays, effectively who have no choice of religion at all . . . ask around to find out . . . ) are critically needed.

Farda Audience Picks Late Shah’s Son As Iran’s Person Of The Year Friday, March 23, 2012 – By RFE/RL

U.S. – Iran’s former Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi, leading advocate for the campaign of “civil disobedience against the clerical regime,” at a press conference in Washington, DC, 22Jun2009

RFE/RL Radio Farda’s audience has chosen exiled Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi, the eldest son of the late deposed Shah of Iran, as the most important and most influential person of the Iranian year.

The selection is the result of an online poll that was timed to coincide with the Persian New Year and included thousands of respondents.

The 51-year-old Pahlavi has called for the prosecution of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on charges of crimes against humanity. He has also said he wants to unite diverse Iranian opposition groups and forces to eliminate the regime in Tehran.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who was awarded an Oscar for best foreign-language film, finished second by just a few votes.

In February, Farhadi became the first Iranian filmmaker to win the prestigious Academy Award for his movie, “A Separation.” He dedicated his award to the Iranian people, whom he described as peace-loving.

His success sparked jubilation among Iranians, but the Iranian government canceled a ceremony that was due to be held in his honor in Tehran, without explanation.

The number three newsmaker of the year, according to those who voted in Radio Farda’s poll, are Iran’s political prisoners. Human rights activists believes several hundred Iranians are jailed in the country over their political activism and dissenting views.

Pahlavi received around 33 percent (4,028 votes) of the vote, while Farhadi followed with 31 percent (3,717 votes) and Iran’s political prisoners received nearly 10 percent of the vote (1,198 votes).

The poll was conducted online on Radio Farda’s website and its Facebook page. Some took part in the poll by sending e-mails and text messages to Radio Farda. In total, Radio Farda received 12,024 votes from Iranians inside and outside the country.

People were asked to vote on a list of 25 Iranian and international personalities chosen by experts, journalists, and intellectuals as the most influential figures of the Iranian year.

Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Musavi, Syrian protesters, jailed human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh, and dissident writer and filmmaker Mohammad Nourizad were all in the top 10.

The poll was not intended to be representative of the views of the entire Iranian population.

ARTICLE 2

“The poll was not intended to be representative of the views of the entire Iranian population.” – March 22, 2012 16:07 by: Sey from: World

I love this final line. Of course it’s not meant to represent the entire Iranian population, not even 1/3 of it.

The ones who voted on this poll are the Islamophobic expats and their Westernized counterparts in Tehran and other major cities, where the Westernization of Iran between the 1950s and 1970s is missed by the “modern” Iranians.

Things are not so “modern” in the provinces or pretty much anywhere outside Tehran, where religion and traditions still matter. But everybody always takes 8 million Tehranis as the sole representative for the entire 75 million Iranians.

I simply cannot understand those who want the Islamic regime to be replaced by a Western-friendly regime. Have you got not self-respect at all? I’m not protecting the lunatics who rule Iran today, but does your short memory does not allow you to see how the West treated your country as their game zone, how the Shah you love to protect so much was as oppressive and murderous as the mullahs?

With or without the mullahs and the Islamic republic, Iran would be in the same position it is today if it was ruled by a pro-Iranian nationalist regime, like the one of Mossadegh, whom by the way the West overthrew in most probably the first Iraq-like intervention in history. The West does not like countries that stand up to it and say “No, thank you”. They want silent and condescending slaves upon which they can rule.

Is that what you want for Iran?

ARTICLE 3

A number of observers have written of rumours and allegations that the government of the United Kingdom has secretly supported “mullahs” (Shia clerics) in recent Iranian history, and in particular the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in his successful overthrow of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in the Iranian Revolution of 1979. However, Khomeini rejected the charges.[1]

Beliefs of Iranian public,  Nishan Sahib, flag of the Sikhs – “Stylized Allah” used in Iranian flag

BBC Persian journalist Hossein Shahidi has talked about “the deep-rooted belief” among Iranians “that Britain is behind every move in Iran,” and in particular that the BBC radio is “credited with, or accused of, having brought about the downfall of” both Pahlavi kings, Mohammad Reza Shah and his son Mohammad Reza Pahlavi whose thirty-seven-year rule was brought to an end by the Iranian Revolution of 1978-79.[2]

A survey of Iranian expatriates in Southern California found the leading explanation for the 1979 revolution to be foreign plots,[3] as did a recent survey in Isfahan.[4] It has been suggested by some Iranian observers (living outside Iran) that Iranians hostile to the revolution appear to feel more comfortable blaming outside forces than their own compatriots.[5]

A sinister connection between British India, the Iranian flag created after Iranian Islamic revolution, and Khomeini’s ancestry, has been put forth by some secular Iranians (generally expatriates) who opposed the revolution, according to Iranian author Hooman Majd. Khomeini’s paternal grandfather was an Indian who immigrated to Iran (to the town of Khomeini) in the early nineteenth century when India was a British colony. The stylized `Allah` (الله) on the post-Revolutionary Iranian flag, bears (according to the conspiracy theorists) “a remarkable similarity to the symbol of the Sikhs,” who’s historic homeland is the Indian province of Punjab. Majd himself is unconvinced by the resemblance, seeing the issue instead as reflective of “my compatriot’s love of and insatiable appetite for conspiracy theories.” [6] Khomeini has also been accused of having had a British father. According to an article in Persian Journal mentioned in Forbes.com and elsewhere, Khomeini may have been the son of British adventurer William Richard Williamson, a convert to Islam known to Arab Muslims as Haji Abdullah al-Zobair.[7][8]

According to a book by F. William Engdahl, A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order, a conspiracy to overthrow the Shah was hatched by the British and Americans in 1978 coinciding with the Iranian Revolution.

When “negotiations … under way between the Shah’s government and British Petroleum for renewal of the 25-year old extraction agreement … collapsed”. According to Engdahl, the end of the agreement meant “Iran appeared on the verge of independence in its oil sales policy for the first time since 1953.” To prevent this independence, Engdahl claims “American ‘security’ advisers to the Shah’s SAVAK secret police implemented a policy of ever more brutal repression” against anti-Shah demonstrators, while American President Carter “cynically began protesting abuses of ‘human rights'” caused by the American advisers policy. The British Petroleum company “reportedly” organized a “capital flight” from Iran,” and so on.[9]
[edit] Claims by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi

Mohammad Reza Pahlavi himself asserted that, “If you lift up Khomeini’s beard, you will find MADE IN ENGLAND written under his chin,” in the later days of his reign as monarch.[10] This statement by Pahlavi was an adaptation of another saying, “If you lift a mullah’s beard, you will find ‘Made in Britain’ stamped on his chin.”[11]
[edit] 1978 Ettela’at article

On 7 January 1978[12], the state news agency Ettela’at also published an article accusing Khomeini of being a British agent and a “mad Indian poet.”[13]

According to the article

These days thoughts turn once again to the colonialism of the black and the red, that is to say, to old and new colonialism.

Black referring to feudal forces and red to communist ones. The two groups allegedly had formed an alliance to sabotage the monarchy’s modernization project. The article went on to say that when this alliance went looking for a clerical mouthpiece two decades ago to dupe the devout.

Ruhollah Khomeini was an appropriate agent for this purpose. It was said that he had spent time in India and was in contact there with institutions of English colonialism, and this is how he become known by the name `Seyyed Hindi`

The article further suggested that Khomeini’s opposition to the shah was prompted and paid for by British oil interests.[14]

Supporters of the Khomeini, outraged by the article, organized violent demonstrations in response, which eventually snowballed into the Iranian Revolution and led to the flight of the Shah about a year later.[15]
[edit] Post-revolution

Engdahl quotes Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi as blaming not the British but the Americans for his overthrow.

I did not know it then – perhaps I did not want to know – but it is clear to me now that the Americans wanted me out. Clearly this is what the human rights advocates in the State Department wanted … What was I to make of the Administration’s sudden decision to call former Under Secretary of State George Ball to the White House as an adviser on Iran? … Ball was among those Americans who wanted to abandon me and ultimately my country.[9]

Unrest in Iran Inspires Pro-Democracy Activists in the Arab World – June 27, 2009 by TMO

New America Media, Commentary, NAM Correspondent

NAM Editor’s Note: Arab regimes haven’t publicly criticized or even mentioned what is happening in neighboring Iran, triggering much speculation among Arab bloggers as to why that is. The author of this piece wished to remain anonymous due to safety concerns.

Former Iranian Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi (the would be Padishah Emperor) speaks about Iran at the National Press Club in Washington June 22, 2009.    REUTERS/Larry Downing

DAMASCUS — Images of bloody protesters and crowds numbering in the hundreds of thousands in the streets of Tehran have been broadcast into living rooms across the Arab world for five consecutive days, enchanting and inspiring pro-democracy activists in a region where pushes for democratic reforms tend to be met with an iron fist.

Meanwhile, Arab regimes have largely remained silent over the contested election. Leaders of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan—the major Sunni powers in the region—haven’t mentioned the elections or allegations of fraud. In normal circumstances, this would be strange — these countries are the regional archenemies of President Ahmedinejad’s Iran.

Some say the reason behind their silence lies in their fear of bolstering pro-democracy movements in their own countries. “The unrest in Iran frightens dictators in the region because it makes it harder for them to justify their own absolute authority,” says Syrian blogger Yasir Sadiq. “If they see tyrannies come down around them, they’ll be afraid.”

Whether or not the Iranian elections were “stolen,” Iran is a long way ahead of most Arab countries when it comes to democracy — the country has a functioning electoral system. Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and the Gulf states don’t hold elections, and in Egypt and Syria, “elections” are so tightly controlled that the results are always known in advance.

The state controlled media in authoritarian Arab countries have mostly downplayed the events in Iran. Government controlled newspapers like Al-Thawra in Syria, Iran’s strongest regional ally, have kept Iran off the front pages and run headlines like, “The West needs to stop intervening in Iranian elections,” using age-old claims of conspiracies to deflect attention from actual popular desire for democratic reform.

“Governments all over the Arab world accuse pro-democracy movements of serving the west, or of being tools of the CIA or Mosad (Israeli intelligence),” says Syrian freelance journalist Khaled Al-Khetyari. “They are just trying to manipulate people by using this language because the people in power don’t want their populations to analyze what is actually happening in Iran.”

The Obama administration has been relatively silent on the unrest in Iran. On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton said it was up to Iranians to “resolve this internal protest.”

Al-Khatyari says the U.S. administration’s measured distance is a strategy the U.S. should stick to. “The last American administration latched onto any internal opposition to regimes it didn’t like. This always hurts local movements because it connects them to a country that most people here see as harmful to the region and it justifies repression by our governments.”

Syrian blogger Yasir Sadiq says he is encouraged by the Iranian opposition’s seven-point manifesto being circulated on the internet, which calls for the “Dissolution of all organizations — both secret and public — designed for the oppression of the Iranian people.”

“It’s inspiring to see people in the Middle East call for the end of secret services,” Sadiq says. “Organizations like this have oppressed people in the Arab world so much.”

Sadiq is reticent to believe that what he calls Iran’s pro-democracy “intifada” could be exported to Arab countries any time soon. “It’s difficult to hope for this kind of movement in the Arab world. We have a long way to go, but we hope that eventually, something like that will happen here.”

For now, he says, Arab activists will attempt to learn what they can from their counterparts in Iran. For days, Sadiq has been pegged to Twitter, the social networking tool that has allowed Iranians to organize demonstrations while the Iranian government institutes a near blackout of internet services.

“Arab bloggers’ main interest in what is happening in Iran is in figuring out how Twitter can be used to organize and bring our voices forward in our own countries,” he says.

The government in Syria may eventually try to ban it, like they have with other networking sites like Facebook, but Sadiq says he is not deterred. “The more they ban, the more ways we will find to get around their restrictions.”

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Hopefully Ahmadinejad is able to digest all of this response to this post. Given the above element of control in the Mullah establishment and link to Orwellian England, and the possibility by the above articles that Ayatollah Khomeni IS indeed a English plant somehow, (see how close the English are to the Saudis in some ways and the selective attacks on certain nations but complete bypass of Sunni nations in general), the autonomy of the Middle East could in fact lie upon Ahmadinejad’s ability to take control of Iran, reinstate the Crown Prince and civil society THEN also not be influenced by NATO and the ‘West’ as well to maintain autonomy while keeping the nation in one piece AND separate in the occult area as well, the greatest danger from a certain clique within UN, influence on behalf of a certain occult group to a degree.

Iran is actually part of the PERSIAN empire which esconced Zoroastrian faith which used Old Persian, but was conquered and converted to Shia Islam AND the Persian language replaced by Arabic language. The autonomy of the unascended Crown Prince Pahlavi must be confirmed, though the linguistic and cultural also religious state of the Persian revival very likely now depends on Ahmadinejad and the general knowledge of the citizentry in who they were before the violent conversions. Granted the old regime had abuses, but Iran as standing now a Theocracy does not look much different. If the proper education is given to those in the region to remember their Persiatic roots, Zoroastrian faith and immensly wealthy Persiatic culture also the Persian language and script, the inevitable freedom of an entirely subsumed people’s faith, language and culture will be effected. Ahmadinejad looks critical in this juncture for the fate of the Middle East. In fact Shia Islam could function alongside the non-theocratic and democratized state as well as per the Article 18 of the UNHCR, giving an opt out option for Iranians who prefer to seek religious refuge in Persia’s original faith of Zoroastrianism instead.

See original Persian script in below link :

http://www.livius.org/arl-arz/aryans/alphabet.html

Is Ahmadinejad able to do all this then cement the entire action with an immediate withdrawal from politics to let a second liner follower take over in an exceptional gesture unseen before in the power mad Middle East? Great events were never possible by men faint of heart, that refused to use the resources at their hands, and by these actions (if Ahmadinejad is able or daring enough to) from an enemy, Iran’s new Persian Empire constitutionally headed by the reinstated Crown Prince (with ceremonial powers and a reasonable stipend determined by the people of Iran hereon) could well be the reset button than Iran needs that could revive civil society in place of theocracy and potentially dominate the Middle East . . . remember Zarathustra and with the lessons learnt after the fall of the Old Shah, may the spirit of the great Persian philosopher guide Ahmadinejad and Persia’s Crown Prince and perhaps new Padishah Emperor . . . by these actions also Ahmadinejad would have firmly made a mark on the history of mankind as the reviver and protector of the True Persia

China mocks India’s ‘missile delusion’ after rocket launch – Jatindra Dash Bhubaneswar – Friday 20 April 2012

A state-owned Chinese tabloid adopted a mocking tone as India entered the small club of nations with intercontinental nuclear weapons capabilities yesterday by test-firing a rocket that can reach Beijing and eastern Europe.

Footage showed the Agni V with a range of more than 5,000km blasting through clouds from an island off the east coast. Named after the Hindu god of fire, it is the crowning achievement of a programme developed primarily with a threat from China in mind.

The official response from Beijing was measured, with China’s foreign ministry saying the two countries should “work hard to uphold friendly strategic co-operation”. But the Global Times, owned by the Chinese Communist Party’s main mouthpiece, the People’s Daily, struck a less conciliatory tone, saying India was being swept up by “missile delusion”. “India should not overestimate its strength,” it said before the launch, which was delayed by a day because of bad weather.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

For throwing negativism at an immediate neighbour, this tabloid should have self-identified to all watchers as a propagandist outfit. Could all propaganda outfits be closed down by Indian and Chinese sides AFTER being branded and identified to the people as such (i.e. list of reasons before shut down of the offending domains would be good). BRICS is obviously a single and growing group able to ensure citizen freedoms via multipolarism, preventing hegemony. All in appropriate government departments should act quickly against such media portals. Methinks a low level political spat is in the works. BRICS ensures a multipolar world that should not be destroyed by 1 irresponsible state owned tabloid which doubtless could well already be influenced by foreign powers intent on breaking up BRICS. This article also demogogues via the title. China DOES NOT mock. The state owned tabloid’s editors (much less the owner?) are the mockers.

Laughter clubs catch on in stressed-out Hong Kong – April 09, 2012

HONG KONG, April 9 — Hypnotherapist Dick Yu has a mission that seems unthinkable to some Hong Kong people: he wants to make the Asian financial hub’s seven million residents laugh.

“Hong Kong people don’t laugh because they are under constant pressure to make more money, to make life better,” says Yu, who has founded 11 Laughter Clubs in the southern Chinese city since 2007.

“People get worried easily because housing is so expensive, the cost of living is getting higher and people are concerned about whether they can keep their job.”

The 35-year-old trained hypnotherapist set up Hong Kong’s first laughter club in 2007, after he discovered the concept of laughter yoga — made popular as an exercise routine by Indian physician Madan Kataria in 1995.

Since then hundreds of heavy-hearted Hong Kong residents have signed up for the free classes, a sign, experts say, of the city’s underlying health and social problems.

“When you laugh, you’re happier, you become positive and everything else will become better,” Yu says after a one-hour laughing session in a park.

“Ho ho, ha ha ha,” the group of 30 students recite. They combine the exercise with deep yogic breathing, give each other high-fives, clap and waddle like penguins, all in the name of laughter.

The fake laughter very soon breaks into the real thing, demonstrating one of the core principles of laughter yoga: Laughter has physiological benefits whether it is fake or real.

As the adage “laughter is the best medicine” goes, researchers credit belly laughs as a recipe for a healthy heart. It helps expand blood vessel linings to increase blood flow, reduces stress hormones and boosts the immune system.

A British study last year showed 15 minutes of laughter increased the level of pain tolerance by around 10 per cent, as the action helps to trigger the release of endorphins, the body’s naturally produced pain killers.

“It was a bit awkward in the beginning when we tried to fake the laughter with the ‘ho ho, ha ha ha’, but after a while you can tell the difference and you feel more relaxed,” said Kaman Wong at one of Yu’s classes.

The 37-year-old student joined the laughter club two years ago when he was a supervisor at a food processing firm.

“The work was stressful. There was a lot of overtime work, I had to deal with many workers. If anything went wrong I was responsible, but I’ve learned how to laugh away all the stress,” he says.

But on top of his work problems, he said the pressure-cooker atmosphere of Hong Kong itself was getting him down.

“Everyone is like a balloon that is about to explode in Hong Kong. If you smile at me, I wouldn’t know how to react to that. I think there are just a lot of barriers among Hong Kongers that we need to break,” he says.

Social scientists say the laughter club boom highlights the stress issue faced by many residents of a densely populated city which groans under extremes of inequality, soaring property prices and cramped living spaces.

The number of people seeking psychiatric treatment at Hong Kong’s public hospitals leapt 20 percent between 2007 and 2011 to 184,087, according to the Hospital Authority.

Hong Kong’s suicide rate rose from 11.5 deaths per 100,000 people in 1990 to 14.6 in 2009, World Health Organization figures show. That’s higher than in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, but lower than South Korea.

Paul Yip, director of the University of Hong Kong’s Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention, says material success means more to many Hong Kong residents than physical well being.

“Hong Kong is a very fast-paced society. People walk fast… They have to work long hours not because it is their choice but because they have to survive,” he says.

Sky-high property prices fuelled by the entry of rich mainland Chinese tycoons into the local market mean families often have to squeeze into tiny apartments.

“Even if you’re not happy, you have nowhere to go,” Yip says.

In other words, Hong Kong is fertile ground for laughing guru Yu, who hopes to set up branches of his club all over the city.

“The laughter club should be like a convenience store, which you have in every community. If everyone is laughing, the society will be happier,” he says.

“I hope there are more laughing ambassadors in Hong Kong to spread joy and laughter to everyone.” — AFP/Relaxnews

What an idiot and idiotic mindset the article promotes. Vote properly for MPs who will change bad laws not laugh (as the Hokkien say ‘Chio Lan‘ or ‘Laugh Dick’, right before they can the a$$es of the slithery sniggerers out to sabotage everyone . . . ). If not run for election as independent candidates intent on bettering the system. Laughing won’t change ANYTHING but ‘waste’ energy that will be needed to effect change. This is a strawman NGO who cements helplessness via unhelpful laughter. Shameless 1%ter posing as someone useful. Instead of direct propaganda, they now presume to manipulate emotional realities where truth is esconced – ORGANIC EMOTIONS not contrived laughter. If you’re sad this is the way you will be made aware that something is seriously wrong in society or a relationship. Gratuitous Ra-ra feel goodism, much like Foodie-ism in supposed religious festivals, is plain destructive of an already suffering people or followers. Who are these straw-men and straw-women distracting us from? POLITICIANS who refuse to change the system or amend laws!

Bad feelings and stress are a barometer to tell you when something is wrong. By ‘learning’ to laugh when inappropriately positioned to, much like that ‘Amma’ wmoron hugs mindlessly in Malaysia, Mankind (in Hongkong at least where the foolish and mediocre actually join this nonsesne) are impoverished in the accuracy and expression of heart. Life is serious and hard work is needed not helpless and insane laughter. Mankind has MANY battles, and here we have laughing fools trained by the probably the West and NWO out to destroy the severe work ethic of the Chinese through Hong Kong. This Dick shames the Yu family and his ancestors. This is a very wicked and subversive thing to do to fellow citizens. Well there will always be fools. Instead of building, some idiots will always tear down instead. Some Maoist re-education needs to be done here before this socialised poison, with that thread of idiocracy stemming from some ungodly propaganda intent media funded by Orwellian government. Chinese leaders will be ambassadors for their culture and pride for nation NOT the morasss of commonality in laughter.

Much like the ‘Clowning’ NLP/meme was fostered against USA’s black community to weaken the Afro-American’s resolve from revolution for the RNA (Republic of New Africa) for true equality and human rights . . . next ‘Fooling’ and finally FOOLS will be Hongkonger’s imprint rather than something greater. What chance do fools have in life? This is where laughter leadsm dissolution . . . Vote properly for MPs who will change bad laws. If not run for election as independent candidates intent on bettering the system. Laughing won’t change ANYTHING, voting out oligarchs, nepotists, citizen destroying bad politicians that refuse to amend laws will . . .

The face of Orwellian idiocracy and mediocrity in Hong Kong. Mindless followers led by the above appropriately named dick, Dick Yu . . .

The face of Malaysia's Orwellian stooge . . . note the neo-Illuminist meme based on the subversion of meanderings of REAL minds intent on REAL change . . . an entire non-career built on parasitization and nepotism . . .

Opening of Starbucks’ first juice bar a sign of what’s to come

Starbucks’ launched their first premium juice bar store in the US this week called Evolution Fresh. — AFP Businesswire
WASHINGTON, March 22—  A newly opened juice bar by coffee giant Starbucks in Washington provides a first glimpse into what’s poised to become a major trend, akin to the ubiquitous green and white logo around the world.

After acquiring California-based juice company Evolution Fresh four months ago, the company has wasted no time in setting up their first outlet which opened in Bellevue, Washington this week and will serve freshly-pressed premium juices in addition to healthy snacks and food options.

The experience begins with an interactive wall display featuring digital illustrations of juices and smoothies being made.

Juices are made without the need for heat treatment due to a technology called High Pressure Processing, which Evolution Fresh says retains more of the flavours, vitamins and nutrients of raw fruits and vegetables.

While the premium juices will be available as ready-to-drink bottled beverages, customers will be able to personalise their food orders like wrap sandwiches, salads, soups as well as vegetarian and vegan options.

The Washington store was designed to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification with locally-sourced, reused and recycled components.

The ready-to-drink bottles will also line grocery store shelves in the US.

The latest venture into premium juice comes following vocal warnings by Starbucks’ sustainability chief who has been sounding the alarm on dwindling coffee supplies due to climate change.

The move is also seen as a big step in the company’s overall strategy to enter the health and wellness sector.

Over time, the company says it plans to expand Evolution Fresh into additional channels.

News that Starbucks will be entering the premium juice market has existing retailers on high alert. US-based Jamba Juice, which sells smoothies and freshly squeezed juices and anti-oxidant ‘shots’, has embarked on an ambitious global expansion that includes locations in Toronto, Canada, South Korea and the Philippines which just opened this month.

Canadian-owned Booster Juice also sells nutrient-packed juices, smoothies and energising fruit shots, and has locations in India, Mexico, the Netherlands and Saudi Arabia. — AFP-Relaxnews

Barring quality comparisons, a company that has no focus should not be considered a specialist anymore. Other coffee ONLY CAFE companies will take over where Starbucks has left.

All in one restaurants in general could well be less elitist being more inclusive rather than exclusive in specifics only restaurants, though F&B specialising in extreme low prices to control entire markets are also a second type of specialist – they specialise in bringing cheap to the masses banking on large numbers of 99% ters rather than small num,bers of 1% types as in above specialists attempt to do. Both arevalid and each has their own demographic.

;with each additional food type ‘thrown in’ lowering the ‘competitor ethics’ / ‘focus product’ value of the franchise. The best and most focused, largest product chain offered at best prices by any will likely win. The ‘encroach’ and ‘despecialise’ factor will doubtless dampen enthusiasm for Starbucks, and as the franchise grows to include any and everything, the brand will fade into anonymity among a sea of already All-in-1 type franchises which we already know as ‘Mom-n-Pop’ stores that double as cafe/newspaper-magazine stands serving pork, mac-and-cheese (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyF8__fR8PQ) or whatever in dirty ash trays or the toxic yet unbiquituous styrofoam cups foil packages. Say good bye to the franchises unable to respect the unwritten specialist franchise code. Major fail packaged as a major in. Much like when Arnold Schwarzeneggar stopped being the ‘Terminator’ (1984 James Cameron) and became pregnant in ‘Twins’ (Ivan Reitman 1988) or when Noriyuki Morita (d.2005) from The Karate Kid (1984 John G. Avildsen) became a gay waiter in Spy Hard (1996 Rick Friedberg). Not just advertising and media dominance is needed, the REAL stuff 0 consistency and specialisation are needed to stand out!

The Masterchef effect: Chefs see bookings for their restaurants soar up to 400 per cent after guest roles on show – by Liz Thomas – PUBLISHED: 00:04 GMT, 23 March 2012 | UPDATED: 00:04 GMT, 23 March 2012

There may be only one champion on Masterchef but it seems even a guest appearance on the BBC1 prime time show can make you a winner.

Guest chefs, who feature on the show for little more than ten minutes, are seeing bookings for their restaurants soar by as much as 400 per cent.

Branding experts said a cameo appearance on such a prestigious programme is “priceless” advertising.

Winning formula: Chefs who have appeared on BBC1’s hit TV show Masterchef have seen bookings soar by up to 400 per cent

Despite the difficult economic climate it seems a brief cameo is enough to boost business for the chefs that appear.

David Thomson, who is head chef at London’s exclusive Nahm restaurant, saw bookings rise at the venue by 400 per cent in the week he appeared on the show.

He advised contestants on how to cook street food on location in Chang Mai, Thailand.

Benjamin Tish, executive chef at the Salt Yard Group which owns three venues in London, said his restaurants had seen a 100 per cent jump.

He appeared on the show in an early task to show contestants how to prepare dishes from his restaurants.

Mr Tish added: ‘The spike [in bookings] was amazing we had literally 500 bookings over about 36 hours, which is absolutely incredible. We are always busy so it means that people are booking further ahead.’

A spokesman for Gordon Ramsay at the Royal Hospital Road said it was fully booked and operating a waiting list of up to three months.

…And in the week he appeared he saw bookings at the venue rise by an astounding 400 per cent

Head chef Clare Smyth, who has three Michelin stars, helped the finalists prepare a three course meal for seven of the world’s best chefs.

Leading brand consultant Paul Hitchens said the power of Masterchef was “priceless” and could have a long term positive effect.

He said: ‘To be endorsed by a BBC family entertainment show which has been running since 1994 is priceless.
Feeling the effect: Clare Smyth, head chef at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant in London’s Royal Hospital Road, helped the finalists in one episode of the culinary show

‘It is the best kind of publicity as the chef is introduced as an expert in their field and by association endorsed by the BBC.

‘The chef can then use this publicity to promote their restaurant, books and products with the endorsement ‘as seen on TV’.’

Marketing expert Allyson Stewart-Allen added: ‘The general rule-of-thumb is that PR is worth three times paid-for media.’
…The restaurant has since become fully booked and is operating a waiting list of up to three months

Masterchef broadcasts on BBC1 in peak prime time to around 5 million viewers.

To buy a 30 second advert at a similar time on ITV ranges between £59,549 and £ 43,243.

So a ten minute appearance is worth between £865,000 and £1.2 million worth of advertising.

This cameo could then lead to further TV projects, endorsements, and build the chef’s reputation longer term.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

The response-postulation may be wrong, but this response is to warn-prevent kickback/bribery abuse by media monopoly that this sort of article could give to Masterchef and the subsequent culture of bribery that occurs backstage. No hard feelings ‘Masterchef’! Any F&B does not need a Masterchef programme. They only need live cams at all times at all angles monitoring the kitchens counters and staff attitudes. It’s not the reality programmes that are valuable, the transparency and accountability (which cams also can provide) is what the consumers want. So put those inhouse and live stream cams up in your F&B, and the effect will be the same as a ‘Masterchef’ appearance. Also helps if the local government thinks highly of the establishment and features local officials at the places of work. Meanwhile the endorsements and adverts’ income could directly be earned by the F&B instead of going through ‘Masterchef’ and creating a monopoly effect which this article could well be written and paid for the purposes for – mercenary journalism is not unknown dear readers.

Obama disowns De Niro white First Lady joke (AFP) – 21st March 2012

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign distanced itself Tuesday from a joke by Hollywood veteran Robert de Niro about the prospect of a white First Lady returning to the White House.

The reaction came after Republican candidate Newt Gingrich slammed the jest, — made by Democrat-supporting actor De Niro at a fundraising event with Michelle Obama — as “unacceptable.”

“We believe the joke was inappropriate,” said the first lady’s campaign press secretary Olivia Alair after Gingrich’s comments triggered a tide of online argument about the joke.

“Raging Bull” star De Niro made the contested remark as he introduced Michelle Obama at a fundraising event on Monday in New York’s trendy Greenwich Village district.

“Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?” the actor said, referring to the wives of Republican candidates Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney.

“No” yelled one person as the crowd roared, while De Niro added: “Too soon, right?”

The joke played on the ubiquitous discussion four years ago about whether America was ready for its first black president, ahead of Obama’s November 2008 election victory.

But Gingrich — struggling in his campaign to win the Republican nomination to take on Obama in November — took issue at a campaign stop on Tuesday, demanding an apology from the president.

“I do want to say one thing on behalf of both my wife, and on behalf of Karen Santorum and on behalf of Ann Romney, and that is I think Robert De Niro is wrong,” the former House Speaker said on the campaign trail in Louisiana.

“I think the country is ready for a new first lady, and he doesn’t have to describe it in racial terms.” He added: “I call on the president to apologize for him.”

De Niro insisted the comments were a joke.

“My remarks, although spoken with satirical jest, were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone — especially the First Lady,” he said in a comment forwarded by his publicist.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

“My remarks, although spoken with satirical jest, were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone — especially the First Lady,” Look up ‘nepotism’ De Niro, this is also kinda racist. This is not a club or casual setting where satire is normal, the WH and ‘official opinion’ factor counts, if people go around Obama or any officials spouting semi racist, unethical nepotism b.s., USA will lose credibility because a whole lot of angry people in the world are still fuming at USA Mr 185 Million Plutocrat.

Money makes you tough? Well not to the psychos ready to blow themselves and everyone else up. USA is in deep sh1t, technically collapsed from default, too many wars and a bunch of plutocrats sequestering much needed wealth while the country falls apart. Instead of making worthless remarks, how about supporting 300+ 401Ks for veterans who are protecting Hollywood’s candy a$$? Acting and film is NOT real life, and any slips Obama makes here could cost USA far much more than 300+ veterans to support. Nice to be ‘Hollywood Insular’ isn’t it? One wonders how USA even manages to function at all, well actually USA is crumbling from that fatcat 1% (that means you de Niro!) holding all the wealth (especially the liquid asset, not so much the first properties which are overvalued and needed for living in anyway – most housebuyers got cheated, condo dwellers totally conned . . . ) to no good purpose . . .

‘Harry Potter’ actor jailed for joining riots – Associated PressAssociated Press – 21st March 2012

LONDON (AP) — A judge has sent a cast member of the “Harry Potter” films to prison for taking part in rioting that flared across England last summer.

Judge Simon Carr sentenced Jamie Waylett, who played Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe in six of the films, to two years in jail.

Prosecutors said Waylett was part of a small gang that took part in the riots in north London on Aug. 8.

A jury at London’s Wood Green Crown Court found Waylett guilty Tuesday of violent disorder, but acquitted him of another charge of intending to destroy or damage property with a fire bomb he was holding.

The 22-year-old had already admitted handling a bottle of stolen Champagne from a supermarket during the riots.

Waylett has a previous conviction for growing marijuana.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Lets say that the damage caused by the riots could be repaired with a fraction of wealth a single of these ‘actor plutocrats’ have. The riots were caused by unequal wealthdistribution, Waylett was entirely inappropriate in participating – too rich.

Drones to host Pirate Bay servers flying over intl waters – Published: 20 March, 2012, 19:09

Sky Pirates: Torrent site’s drone server solution.

Controversial file-sharing website The Pirate Bay has had more than its share of legal troubles over the past few years – investigations, raids, fines. Now the site has come up with a radical new plan: hosting its servers on unmanned flying drones.

­According to TPB’s most recent blog post, being down-to-earth is just not doing it for them anymore. So they are looking to take advantage of advanced technologies like the super-small Raspberry Pi computer, GPS-controlled drones and far-reaching cheap radio equipment.

The plan is to mount the cheap radio devices and computers on drones (“Low Orbit Server Stations”) and launch them high above neutral territory over the ocean.

“With modern radio transmitters we can get over 100Mbps per node up to 50km away. For the proxy system we’re building, that’s more than enough. This way our machines will have to be shut down with aeroplanes in order to shut down the system. A real act of war,” the blog says.

For what it is worth, most of the comments on the blog post are very supportive of this outlandish idea. And it certainly would lend support to TPB’s slogan, “the galaxy’s most resilient system”. The question now is: will they actually be able to pull it off?

Up to 50km’s away.
Isn’t International water some 200 miles off the coast (where permitting)?
And even if they could get the range it won’t help anyone who lives inland and it doesn’t matter anyhow because the Americans have declared the entire earth a battlefield and so there isn’t any such thing as “International waters” anymore. They’ll declare PB a “terrorist organisation” and shoot the things down.

For decades Pirate Radio broadcasters used old shipping freighters or cargo ships as their base of operations in International Waters.

While it is possible for a goose stepping Zionist agency to move a counter jamming vessel near them to effectively shut them down, the cost would be enormous to any nation doing so on a regular basis. Of course US taxpayers have found the evil Zionists are the biggest parasites on planet earth and the backs of the 99% non-Jew American people.

I have zero doubts the gigantic buildup in the Mormon State of Utah on the new NSA base costing US taxpayers enormous domestic funding which would have repaired hundreds of US public schools, bridges, roads, harbours is intended on focusing on the darknet.

The new US Airforce cyberforce base appears entirely designed to wage endless US/Israeli Wars on Internet Users, creating 1000’s of faux military sock puppet social media accounts to spew propaganda and ensnare US citizens into various sting operations.

Soon privacy minded US citizens will follow what the Mexican Drug Cartels setup across Mexico with their own secure encrypted darknet and communications systems entirely independent of Mexican, US and Corporate forces, powers and eavesdropping taps.

Pirate Bay founders and darknet operators should join with independent nations such as Iran, Russia, India and possible North Korea to secure a satellite transponder to anchor some of their darknet traffic. US/Israel of course would try to jam the uplinks but that could be entirely minimised with uplinks in friendly non-western nations.

If slaves realised their tribute to their Caesar was used to buy a bigger whip to be used on their backs, would they stop paying and work to oppose that evil Zionist corrupted regime? Wake-Up Americans, that is precisely what is happening to YOU. Your tax funds are being used by the Zionist corrupted US Gov. to attack YOU, to wage war on YOU, your family and loved ones.

Hey Technofreak Plutocrat IDIOTS (that means people like the Megaupload types). At very least build something like Death Machine (1994 Stephen Norrington) so that a Columbine could be pulled off in relative safety . . . if not able to break the world or rain hellfire on those destroying god given autonomy of humanity by druggings or non-consensual implantations psychically etc., or to be productive, use that money to lobby for abolition of Eminent Domain Laws and for granting of Allodial titles and protection of 2nd Amendment laws. Then buy as much land as possible and LIVE a REAL life in the real world and have real entertainments. Those drones can be ‘accidentally’ shot down or fried with EMPs/ELF weapons from weapons satellites you fools. This drone b.s. thing is a waste of time and money, mere nerd-bation.

How about developing and mass producing anti-mind control helmets instead? Those servers are useless if all citizens are electronic brain implanted zombies. FUND candidates to run for election in as many contituencies as possible. Lobby for electrosmong white zones and wiifi free zones. Stop running and start fighting politically. BUY the WH, not buy drones and nerd tech. Wheres the IRL Arm of the resistance? Stop hiding in cyberspace, nutjobs with bad priorities. try the below and create ‘flying’ squads able to detect and remove the implants from all illegally implanted citizens and activists as well as would be politicians taergeted for sabotage. These were intended for epilepsy but are being used as tools of control instead. So rich? So tech inclined? Then get those medicos  on your payroll, equip them, and help those abused by the psyche establishment on behalf of big government, fundo religious groups and the Orwellian state.

Guan Eng: Pakatan can defend Kelantan, Selangor better than Penang – Thursday, 22 March 2012 17:31

KUALA LUMPUR— Lim Guan Eng has played down the strength of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in Penang, saying it is only the third safest state for the federal opposition to retain in an election that must be called by May next year.

The Penang chief minister told The Malaysian Insider in a recent interview the safest state for PR in its first federal polls as a formal coalition was Kelantan, which has been under PAS rule for 22 years.

“Then Selangor, then only Penang. (Tan Sri) Khalid (Ibrahim) is the smartest mentri besar or chief minister in the country and he is stronger than he appears.

“He makes sense in meetings and I think Selangor is stronger than it looks,” he said, dismissing the suggestion that Penang was a “safe deposit” for PR as “appearances are deceiving.”

Kedah is the fourth state controlled by PR and was recently rocked by a split in the state leadership of PAS, which heads the administration there.

The Bagan MP had come under fire from politicians and the public for suggesting last week that Barisan Nasional (BN) could “eat eggs (win zero seats)” in the state.

But he told The Malaysian Insider in a recent interview that “I did not say they will ‘makan telur’.”

“I said if we are vigilant and we work hard, and we get 90 per cent of the non-Malay support and 40 per cent of the Malay support, then they can ‘makan telur’. But it’s going to be hard,” the DAP secretary-general said.

He said reports of his speech at a fundraising dinner had taken his statement out of context as he had also told supporters not to “take for granted we will win as there is no guarantee in politics.”

“I’m giving a worst-case scenario and best-case scenario. Worst-case, we lose power. Best-case, we get that result (a clean sweep).

“But you think you’ll either get the best or worst? You won’t. It will be somewhere in the middle. But you must strive for the higher target,” he explained.

Penang has been repeatedly lauded by the international press for its economic growth and Lim has also praised its residents for attracting the most manufacturing investment of any state in Malaysia for two consecutive years.

But he said that “Selangor also has the same achievements” and dismissed Umno’s claim that Kelantan voters are tired of the lack of development under PAS.

“They are more tired of corruption,” he said, making specific reference to allegations that Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil and her family had abused RM250 million in public funds meant for a national cattle farming scheme.

Despite the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal that has stretched since October last year, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s approval rating surged by 10 percentage points to 69 per cent in a survey conducted last month.

But Lim said “I don’t deny Najib’s popularity but he cannot contest to be the MB of Kelantan, Kedah, Selangor or CM of Penang. He is contesting to be PM of Malaysia.”

Unlike what the article conveys, DAP’s position in Penang is quite safe actually, except for where nepotist family blocs and term limitless cliques or MPs refusing to amend laws are concerned. DAP as mentioned before, is a great party except for the DAP Central Committee and the DAP nepotist cliques. Continue to vote for DAP, but not the nepotists and oligarch, term limitless and undemocratic abusive MPs in DAP.

Karpal is DAP’s boss, says Guan Eng By Shannon Teoh – March 22, 2012

Karpal renewed his spat with Ramasamy after the latter was cleared by the DAP disciplinary board. — File pic
KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 — Lim Guan Eng moved today to cement the DAP’s backing for its chairman, Karpal Singh, insisting that the issue of who is more powerful in the party does not arise.

The DAP secretary-general had declared yesterday the protracted spat between Karpal and P. Ramasamy was resolved despite the Bukit Gelugor MP’s unhappiness with the Penang deputy chief minister II being cleared of any wrongdoing by the party’s disciplinary committee.

“That issue doesn’t arise,” the Penang chief minister told reporters when quizzed over how the party secretary-general could override his chairman.

“The most important thing is Karpal will be leading as chairman for this coming elections. We want every leader to lead, and Karpal will lead as chairman,” the Bagan MP said, adding that the senior lawyer’s willingness to end the dispute showed “the leadership of Karpal.”

Lim had said that Karpal agreed to bury the hatchet after they met with DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang and party advisor Dr Chen Man Hin.

Last Sunday, Karpal reportedly lashed out during a press conference at the party’s disciplinary committee for clearing his arch-nemesis, Ramasamy, of breaching party discipline involving a demonstration against DAP leaders last December.

According to various media reports, Karpal said the four-man committee, led by its chairman Tan Kok Wai, was unfit to hear the case as it involved Ramasamy, who is also a panel member.

The veteran politician said the four should have excused themselves from the case and new members should have been appointed in their place.

Karpal and Ramasamy, who is also a DAP deputy secretary-general, first came to loggerheads last year when the latter purportedly listed himself and three others as candidates for the coming general election.

This riled Karpal, who shot back at Ramasamy for making such a decision when it was not his place to do so.

In the ensuing verbal exchanges between the duo, Karpal labelled Ramasamy a “warlord”, while the latter responded with a “godfather” tag on the former.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

The pariahs faction within political parties claiming to champion of democracy have acted, shown they are no different from BN. The title should read, LGE turns back on democracy for racist/communal politics, refuses to be fair to Ramasamy. This is BN style exactly. Both LGE and Karpal should LEAVE the CC due to the closed clique judgments, and for this spat, only neutral parties should decide, NOT undemocratically say ‘Karpal is the boss.’ There is no such thing as a boss. This is a political party not a dual Lim-Karpal clan run family association or family business. Pity the Indian members in DAP, they have a Samy Vellu in the form of term limitless Karpal Singh.

I was born in M’sia and I shall die in M’sia – Kit Siang hits back at his May 13 accusers – Written by  Lim Kit Siang – Thursday, 22 March 2012 15:52

I was born in Malaysia and I shall die in Malaysia. I am proud I have stood by my statement of commitment and patriotism to Malaysia when I was 28 years old under my first ISA detention 43 years ago in 1969.

Recently, there has been a coarsening and vulgarisation of politics in Malaysia, even in this august House of Parliament, where lies and falsehoods are disseminated without conscience or compunction whatsoever.

May 13, 1969 – I wasn’t even in KL

During the present and past meetings of Parliament, the most irresponsible and despicable falsehoods had been made against me, accusing me of having instigated the deplorable May 13 riots 43 years ago in 1969.

For four decades, the police, the security forces and the government could not pinpoint who caused the May 13 riots in 1969, but suddenly, somebody knew who caused the May 13 riots – and I have been accused in this House of having caused May 13, through making the most racist slogans in the streets of Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13, 1969.

As a result, these lies and falsehoods that I had incited and sparked the May 13 riots, particularly in the streets of Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13, 1969 had been blazoned on the blogs of UMNO cybertroopers.

In fact, I was never in Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13, 1969. I contested in Bandar Melaka, was in the counting centre in Malacca until the early hours of May 11, 1969 for the results, returning to my family in Petaling Jaya later on May 11 (Sunday). On Monday, May 12, 1969, I returned to Bandar Melaka constituency for a thank-the-voters procession in the evening and a thank-the-voters public rally on Monday night, both of which were peacefully conducted.

I must have the signal honour of being the only elected representative in 1969 to have both a thank-you procession and public rally as I was booked to fly to Sabah on the morning on Tuesday, May 13, 1969 to help campaign for the Independent candidates as the Sabah and Sarawak polling days were to be held a week after the Peninsular election results.

I was speaking at a public rally in Kota Kinabalu on the night of May 13 when I first learnt of May 13 troubles in Kuala Lumpur.

To accuse me of inciting the May 13 riots with racist outbursts and abuses in the streets of Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13 are the most irresponsible and despicable of lies.

What I already foresaw way back then

In my first speech in Parliament on Feb. 23, 1971 after my release from my first Internal Security Act detention and the restoration of Parliament, on the Constitution Amendment Bill 1971, I called for the establishment of a Parliamentary Commission, which should include non-MP Malaysians eminent in their respective fields, to among other things, “find out the cause of the May 13 racial riots” and “to make recommendations as to how to prevent a recurrence of May 13 racial riots and arrest the racial polarisation in Malaysia”.

This was what I said in July 1969 in response to my detention under the Internal Security Act, record of which I am sure are still in the Home Ministry archives:

“My every public statement and stand was motivated by my sense of Malaysian nationalism and patriotism. I was born in Malaysia and I shall die in Malaysia. I have no other land as my home. I have children who are growing up in Malaysia and who are going to live in Malaysia. I feel it is my duty to do my part to build a multi-racial and harmonious Malaysia for, without such a society, all Malaysians will suffer.

“I believe that the policy followed by the Alliance is not producing or generating a sense of Malaysian consciousness and identity transcending all racial language and cultural differences. I believe that the only formula to build a Malaysian nation is to give every Malaysian regardless of his race, language or culture, a stake in the political economic social and cultural development of the country, where no group feels that ti is being discriminated against on racial, cultural, language or religious grounds. It is this philosophy which guided all my public actions and utterances.”

This was my statement of love, loyalty, commitment, nationalism and patriotism when I was 28 years old. I am proud to say that I have stood by this statement.

My children are all in Malaysia, making their contribution towards the building of a modern, progressive, competitive, democratic and just Malaysia.

The next general elections will be a great test for Malaysia whether we can become a normal democratic country, where Malaysians have the right and power to peacefully effect a change of power and government through the ballot box.

I invite the Prime Minister and all Barisan Nasional leaders to join Pakatan Rakyat to prove that we are all Malaysian nationalists and patriots who could work together by establishing a Joint Commission to ensure that the 13th General Elections is the most clean, free and fair in the nation’s history in the process to prove to the world and ourselves that we have graduated to become a normal democratic country.

Najib made many mistakes

In his campaign rounds, Najib recently extended an apology for past Barisan Nasional (BN) mistakes resulting in its loss of several states and electoral seats in the last general elections.

Some three weeks have passed but nobody knows what mistakes Najib was apologizing for.

There are many past UMNO/BN mistakes he needs to tender an apology, but there are also many of his own mistakes made during his 35-month premiership which he needs to apologise for.

Time does not permit me to enumerate these mistakes made by Najib. I will just mention one – his failure to restore public confidence in the efficiency, independence and professionalism of key national institutions, whether the judiciary, police, the Attorney-Generals Chambers, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, the Elections Commission.

The refusal of the Prime Minister to set up a judicial tribunal into grave allegations of abuses of power, subversion of the rule of law and the perversion of the course of justice, made against the Attorney-General, Tan Sri Gani Patail and the former IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan, made by former top police officers, including former CCID Director Datuk Ramli Yusof and the former KL CID Director Datuk Mat Zain, going back to the fabrication of evidence in the Anwar Ibrahim “black eye” incident, the Anwar trials in 1998, the Tajudin Ramli MAS bailouts, and the new information on the “ “bizarre five-year-old case allegedly involving the country’s most powerful police officer, the attorney-general and an underworld figure”, implicating even the Deputy Home Minister at the time, Datuk Johari Baharum, raises grave questions about the Prime Minister’s commitment to the rule of law.

Is the Prime Minister going to avoid taking a stand when it is seriously alleged that only very recently, the country’s topmost legal and police officers in the land, the Attorney-General and the Inspector-General of Police, were criminals – and the same AG is still in office?

Lim Kit Siang is the DAP adviser and MP for Ipoh Timur

This sort of idiotic shouting makes the UMNO racist types want to kick people like LKS out of the country. How about UMNO let Chin Peng back in but kick Kit Siang out of the country instead citing racism? LKS has no loyalty to anyone but his own satrapy and term limitless shamelessness. LKS is bad for democracy as any UMNO warlords and will not even speak about ending APARTHEID, even colluding with BN via nepotist beneficary son LGE (the unvoted for but placed CM Of Penang who’s goons keep abusing rather than amending laws . . . ) to take 750K of tax payer funds WITH BN, their supposed enemy to pass tax payer dollar stealing bills. Who can trust a treacherous undemocratic person like LKS? 3rd Force should take over from here.

In my first speech in Parliament on Feb. 23, 1971 after my release from my first Internal Security Act detention and the restoration of Parliament, on the Constitution Amendment Bill 1971, I called for the establishment of a Parliamentary Commission, which should include non-MP Malaysians eminent in their respective fields, to among other things, “find out the cause of the May 13 racial riots” and “to make recommenjdations as to how to prevent a recurrence of May 13 racial riots and arrest the racial polarisation in Malaysia”.

This was what I said in July 1969 in response to my detention under the Internal Security Act, record of which I am sure are still in the Home Ministry archives:

“My every public statement and stand was motivated by my sense of Malaysian nationalism and patriotism. I was born in Malaysia and I shall die in Malaysia. I have no other land as my home. I have children who are growing up in Malaysia and who are going to live in Malaysia. I feel it is my duty to do my part to build a multi-racial and harmonious Malaysia for, without such a society, all Malaysians will suffer.

“I believe that the policy followed by the Alliance is not producing or generating a sense of Malaysian consciousness and identity transcending all racial language and cultural differences. I believe that the only formula to build a Malaysian nation is to give every Malaysian regardless of his race, language or culture, a stake in the political economic social and cultural development of the country, where no group feels that it is being discriminated against on racial, cultural, language or religious grounds. It is this philosophy which guided all my public actions and utterances.”

This was my statement of love, loyalty, commitment, nationalism and patriotism when I was 28 years old. I am proud to say that I have stood by this statement.

My children are all in Malaysia, making their contribution towards the building of a modern, progressive, competitive, democratic and just Malaysia.

The next general elections will be a great test for Malaysia whether we can become a normal democratic country, where Malaysians have the right and power to peacefully effect a change of power and government through the ballot box.

I invite the Prime Minister and all Barisan Nasional leaders to join Pakatan Rakyat to prove that we are all Malaysian nationalists and patriots who could work together by establishing a Joint Commission to ensure that the 13th General Elections is the most clean, free and fair in the nation’s history in the process to prove to the world and ourselves that we have graduated to become a normal democratic ountry.

In his campaign rounds, Najib recently extended an apology for past Barisan Nasional (BN)mistakes resulting in its loss of several states and electoral seats in the last general elections.

Some three weeks have passed but nobody knows what mistakes Najib was apologizing for.

There are many past UMNO/BN mistakes he needs to tender an apology, but there are also many of his own mistakes made during his 35-month premiership which he needs to apologise for.

Time does not permit me to enumerate these mistakes made by Najib. I will just mention one – his failure to restore public confidence in the efficiency, independence and professionalism of key national institutions, whether the judiciary, police, the Attorney-Generals Chambers, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, the Elections Commission.

The refusal of the Prime Minister to set up a judicial tribunal into grave allegations of abuses of power, subversion of the rule of law and the perversion of the course of justice, made against the Attorney-General, Gani Patailand the former IGP Musa Hassan, made by former top police officers, including former CCID Director Ramli Yusof and the former KL CID Director Mat Zain, going back to the fabrication of evidence in the Anwar Ibrahim “black eye” incident, the Anwar trials in 1998, the Tajudin Ramli MAS bailouts, and the new information on the ” “bizarre five-year-old case allegedly involving the country’s most powerful police officer, the attorney-general and an underworld figure”, implicating even the Deputy Home Minister at the time, Johari Baharum, raises grave questions about the Prime Minister’s commitment to the rule of law.

Is the Prime Minister going to avoid taking a stand when it is seriously alleged that only very recently, the country’s top most legal and police officers in the land, the Attorney-General and the Inspector-General of Police, were criminals – and the same AG is still in office?

LIM KIT SIANG

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

A real patriot would not have started the May 13 riots which LKS doubtless had a part in. A real patriot would not be a term limitless nepotism supporting political party or MP. A real patriot would not coarsely PLACE LGE (LKS’s son) in a blatant show of nepotism as CM in a state where LGE could not even win any seat at assemnly or MP level. This should be titled : Lim Kit Siang’s Unwavering Commitment And Patriotism To The DAP Satrapy (or whats left of the DAP). Firings, unkept campaign promises, state level corruption-abuse of power, Xian fundamentalism??? Time does not permit me to enumerate these mistakes made by Lim Kit Siang. I will just mention one – the failure to restore Local Council Elections as promised.

There are many past DAP/Pakatan mistakes Kit Siang needs to tender an apology, but there are also many of his own mistakes made during his 35-year Gaddafi style MP-ship (complete with family members) which Kit Siang needs to apologise for. 3rd world minded leader of the past needs to be kicked out of DAP even the country . . . had 2 terms? So GFTO of the Dewan and take your products of nepotism and cliques out with you. DAP’s term limitless internally constitution is a FARCE and needs to be rewritten. Cabinet and the ROS should have deported LKS or any other MP who stayed more than 2 terms or installed their kids in any posts LONG ago. Shameless undemocratic lot. They may say the spat is over but cover ups like these will fester and destroy the party’s already undemocratic culture for ALL new members. During my time less than 10 years ago, they already feared the unaffiliated academics enough to close them out, now it seems DAP is very much  like Singapore’s PAP. There is no way Malaysian Chinese can move forward or be represented by a party like DAP, even as Gerakan and MCA’s acceptance of UN illegal Bumiputra-Apartheid policy has damned these other 2 so-called Chinese parties, that leaves PCM in 3rd Force or perhaps SAPP (if SAPP leaves BN), both which have been not been particularly active or democratic either. Vote for 3rd force or run for candidacy as independents for the REAL ISSUE as listed in below 3 items Malaysians! Malaysia does not need DAP and DAP’s undemocratic term limitless liars, clique factions and nepotists!

Subramaniam: Malaysians must prepare for life without maids – By Yow Hong Chieh – March 21, 2012

The minister said a day may come when foreign maids will no longer “want to come and work here.” — File pic
KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 — Malaysians must be prepared to “do their own work” should the time come when foreigners no longer wish to work as domestic help here, Datuk Seri S. Subramaniam said today.

The human resources minister said while foreign maids were readily available now, economic growth in source nations may mean foreigners will one day prefer to work in their home country instead.

“We have to learn how to do our own work. We have opened it so long as there is availability, it’s fine.

As countries evolve, we may not need maids or maids may not want to come and work here

“But… as countries evolve, we may not need maids or maids may not want to come and work here,” he told reporters at Menara Perkeso here.

He was responding to questions about the ongoing talks with Indonesia to send maids to Malaysia.

Jakarta banned its citizens from working as maids in Malaysia in June 2009, after numerous cases of maids being abused by their Malaysian employers.

Indonesia withdrew the moratorium on December 1 last year.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak met with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Bali at the end of last year as part of efforts to resolve the issue amicably.

But Jakarta has yet to start allowing the return of Indonesian domestic helpers to Malaysia despite rescinding the moratorium, leading to confusion here.

Subramaniam added today that the government was strengthening “support mechanisms” for Malaysians now with an eye to a possible maid supply crunch in the future.

However, he did not elaborate on the support mechanisms in question.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

This maid thing could well be the unedifying monopoly of darker skinned races at worst (lighter skinned maids being unemployable) or some form of mask (perhaps like a fencer’s mask or rubber latex mask depicting a typical servant’s face, maybe even with a voice filter so that they cannot be identified later on the street) and uniform that removes entirely the racial and identifying issue. The danger in such a system is of course abuse, trafficking and must be very well monitored perhaps with electronic bracelets and 360 degree cams to protect these now faceless (though probably prominently numbered) people on work contracts from abuse and yet who also do not wish to be identifiable a the same time.

Privacy while working as a maid could be a good incentive for many needing work but not wanting the stigma and later recognition, though records could still be leaked. Faceless masses of menials if anything. Otherwise develop menial AI with robotics that can be managed by a single ‘Menial Manager’ that would have been the maid in earlier days – the drudgery of studying IT or what not Tech based RUBBISH in universities will be the work of mental peons, so that machines can be maintained and repaired in equally peon like work. Here’s your new menial class, tech workers and tech maintainers, thanks to the intentionally poorly written computer languages that do not afford the mainstream society use without corrupting delicate thought processes with convoluted flow charts and doubtless occult paradigms that have no reality in the material or spiritual world except in a destructive and unnatural manner.

An example of bad damage control – NO HOLDS BARRED – Tuesday, 20 March 2012 Super Admin Raja Petra Kamarudin

This is just like how Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa talk.

(Caution to minorities, NLPs up ahead . . . ) Who are you? You are nothing. You Chinese and Indians are pendatang. This country belongs to the Malays. Don’t be so sombong. If you don’t like it you can go back to China or India. Don’t try to demand this and that. Stop asking to be treated equal. You are not equal. Malays are first-class citizens. Chinese and Indians are second-class citizens.

The PKR people are embarking on some serious damage control. And to cover their arses they are distorting what really happened in the hope that they can confuse the people. See what Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, and S I Tan said below. These were all carried in Malaysiakini, The Malaysian Insider, Harakah, as well as pro-opposition Blogs, Din Merican’s included.

Here we are screaming about the lies and distorted news from Umno and the government- and Umno-controlled mainstream media. Then we find the opposition doing exactly the same as what they accuse Umno and the government- and Umno-controlled mainstream media of doing.

This is what I mean when I say that the opposition must walk the talk. How can a priest stand up in the pulpit during Sunday mass and scream that you must be a good Christian and then go and bugger the choirboys and bonk the nuns? Wouldn’t this be called hypocrisy?

Chua Jui Meng is allegedly a Born Again Christian. I don’t know when he died (maybe when MCA kicked him out) but he got born again when he joined the opposition and decided to fight corruption. Considering he was the most corrupted Health Minister Malaysia has ever seen, I can appreciate that he, of all people, would be the expert when it comes to corruption. Would you not employ the best robber to advise you on how to prevent robberies?

The only problem is when he decided to become born again and then join the opposition to fight corruption he refused to give back all the money he robbed when he was the Health Minister. Aiyah! How can you keep all those millions and then whack others for being corrupted? You must first give back all the money you stole before talking about how corrupted other people are.

Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, and S I Tan are from Chinese and Tamil schools or what? How come they can’t understand a simple thing like the difference between a debate and an interview?

‘Debate’ means two or more people take opposite positions on an issue and they argue and defend the position they have taken. ‘Interview’ means one person asks another person questions and you reply to those questions.

So, Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, S I Tan, don’t get confused. More importantly, don’t try to mislead others. That is something Umno and the government- and Umno-controlled mainstream media are supposed to do. The opposition people are supposed to be honest, sincere and trustworthy. If you all also act just like Umno people then why the need to vote opposition? We might as well just vote Barisan Nasional. We want to vote opposition so that we can get something different and something better. But now you all are acting just like Umno — lying and distorting things.

How many times must I repeat the same story before you can understand? Aiyah! Chinese and Tamil schools so bad one or what? Anyway, let me for the umpteenth time tell you what happened.

Wikileaks is producing a documentary and they are interviewing many people for the documentary. Many people mah! Two of these people are Anwar Ibrahim and me. The issue is, do they interview Anwar and me in separate sessions or can they kill two birds with one stone and interview us both at the same time?

When they asked me I said no problem, can do both at the same time. When they asked Anwar he said big problem, must do separate interviews. So the decision was it would be two separate interviews. When they asked me who shall go first, I told them to interview Anwar first and I will take the next session.

So, where got debate one? Why do you keep saying I invited Anwar to a debate? I never invited Anwar! Wikileaks invited Anwar. And it is not a debate between Anwar and me. It is an interview. Julian Assange asks questions and you reply. Simple!

Anyway, whether it is a debate or interview is one issue. But why so sombong one? Why are you all talking like Umno and Perkasa?

Wah! Garang! Who is Raja Petra Kamarudin? He is nobody. Anwar is somebody, a great man. How can Raja Petra want to share the same stage with Anwar? Anwar is way up there. Raja Petra is way down there. Raja Petra is not the same level as Anwar. Raja Petra is just a Blogger. Anwar is the opposition leader.

Imagine if I talk like that.

Who are Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, and S I Tan? They are just Chinese and Indians. They are pendatang. They are not even Bumiputeras. I am from the Selangor Royal Family. My cousin is the Sultan of Selangor. My uncle was the Agong. My grandfather was the Governor of Penang. Why you call me RPK? Bad manners mah! You must address me as Yang Mulia, not RPK.

Is that the way to talk? Sound sombong or not?

Now the NFC directors refuse to appear before the PAC. They have snubbed the PAC Committee. Who are you? You are just a Committee. Why must we appear before your Committee? We are Directors of the NFC. We are bigger than you. You are nothing. We are orang besar. We have Umno backing. We can walk in to the PMs and DPMs office any time. No need to even make an appointment. We no need to layan you one. We can just snub you.

Can you see how many Malaysians have this same attitude?

Siapa awak? Awak ni rendah. Awak tahu saya siapa? Saya Datuk. Saya Tan Sri. Saya Tun. Saya wakil rakyat. Saya Yang Berhormat. Saya ada kuasa. Saya orang besar. Awak apa? Awak ni Blogger saja. You are nobody. I am somebody.

When I walked into the police station in 2001, Bakri Zinin, the current CID Chief whacked me for no rhyme or reason (he just likes whacking people). When I stood up and asked him why he beat me up, he charged at me and wanted to beat the shit out of me. Luckily three of his officers held him back while my wife held on to me. If not I would have killed him.

“I am the OCPD here!” Bakri Zini screamed.

That’s right. Another case of who are you? I am the OCPD here. I am a big man. You are nothing!

Later, when they looked at my IC, they discovered who I was. To cover their mistake, they arrested and handcuffed me and threw me into the lockup. When I demanded to know under what charge, they replied that they are going to arrest me first and then decide later what to charge me with.

So you see how this ‘who are you, I am a big man’ works?

No lah. Don’t act like this. This is a very sombong attitude. Umno also talks like this. In March 2008, the voters punished Umno for talking like this. So don’t make the same mistake like Umno or else the voters might also punish you like they punished Umno in 2008.

This is just like how Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa talk. Who are you? You are nothing. You Chinese and Indians are pendatang. This country belongs to the Malays. Don’t be so sombong. If you don’t like it you can go back to China or India. Don’t try to demand this and that. Stop asking to be treated equal. You are not equal. Malays are first-class citizens. Chinese and Indians are second-class citizens.

Sound sombong or not? Well, this is exactly how you also sound. So be careful how you talk. If everyone also talks like you, you don’t like it. You will scream that we are all equal. We are all Malaysians. Where got first-class and second-class citizens?

Got! Raja Petra Kamarudin is second-class, maybe even third-class. He is just a Blogger. He not the same taraf as Pakatan Rakyat leaders. Pakatan Rakyat leaders are higher class. How can Raja Petra Kamarudin share same stage as Pakatan Rakyat leaders?

Chua Jui Meng: Raja Petra bukan taraf Anwar untuk di ajak berdebat

“Bukan takut rahsia bocor tapi bukan taraf Anwar (Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim). BN (Barisan Nasional) cuba ubah isu kerana orang yang sepatutnya berdebat dengan Anwar adalah Najib (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak),” kata Pengerusi PKR Johor, Datuk Chua Jui Meng.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas berkenaan kenyataan Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yang melabelkan Anwar sebagai penakut kerana keengganannya berdepan dengan pengendali portal Malaysia Today, Raja Petra Kamarudin.

“Saya yakin BN sengaja mengubah topik kerana mahu mengelak kerana khuatir banyak rahsia mereka bakal terbongkar sekiranya menerima pelawaan itu.

“Sekarang kita cabar pula sama ada Najib berani menyahut cabaran untuk berdebat dengan Anwar. Kenapa pula mengubah isu Raja Petra dengan Anwar? ini bukan soal keberanian tetapi kita mahu individu yang layak,” katanya semalam.

Dalam perkembangan lain, Jui Meng enggan mengulas sama ada beliau akan bertanding di Parlimen Gelang Patah kerana menganggap ia masih terlalu awal, selain menyerahkannya kepada kepimpinan Pakatan Rakyat untuk memilih.

“Sama ada DAP atau PKR yang bertanding di kerusi itu bukan masalahnya. Hubungan kami masih mesra seperti dulu, malah terus bekerjasama erat untuk menang dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang,” katanya.

Anwar shouldn’t debate Najib by proxy, says PKR

PKR vice-president N Surendran is bemused by the flap arising from his party supremo’s imputed refusal to debate maverick blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK).

“I’m amused as to how the controversy has enabled two escape artists to evade the more pressing compulsions for debate,” allowed the busy lawyer-politician in remarks made to Malaysiakini.

“One, of course, is RPK himself: Has there been a more compelling need for the two diametrically opposed parts of him to debate each other, seemingly absurd as that may sound,” offered Surendran.

“On the one hand, the public had for years seen the part of him prior to February last year, just before the Sarawak state elections, when he was a significant voice in the medley that was for reform and change in the country,” he continued.

“After an astonishing statement he made last February, the man struck an about-face, a turnaround which he has sustained to this day, thus showing a face radically different to the one he held up to Malaysian netizens prior to February 2011,” observed Surendran.

Surendran, a likely PKR candidate for the 13th general election, argued that since there has been no distinct change to the political structures of the nation, RPK’s volte-face – its mystery, its puzzle – is prime material for a public airing.

“Seriously, a public debate between the two sides of RPK’s persona is a way to dispel that mystery, though I’m afraid it would give political ventriloquism a bad name.

“But can that be any worse that what he has given to the crusading reformist spirit on the net with his astonishing somersault of the last year,” queried Surendran.

The PKR veep held that the other escapee from the contretemps over Anwar Ibrahim’s imputed refusal to debate RPK was Prime Minister Najib Razak.

“The PM has chosen to ride pillion in this matter by imputing cowardice on Anwar’s part but it is he who is ducking out of a debate with Anwar,” charged Surendran.

“His remarks to foreign correspondents yesterday had plenty of allusions to the American political scene but he missed the elephant in the room which is the prevalence of public debates between leading contestants,” he asserted.

“He wants Anwar to debate his proxy, RPK, which is typical of the rentier culture he represents,” quipped Surendran. — Malaysiakini, 20 March 2012

*****************************************

Why the hell should Anwar debate RPK? — S I Tan

Why should the Leader of the Malaysian Opposition debate a discredited blogger?

In any democracy, the incumbent PM debates the leader of the Opposition, not some blogger who has illusions about his own influence.

Raja Petra Kamarudin may think that he is worthy of acclaim but he is not. He has not stood for elections and is not representing any constituency. In fact, he is just another blogger who owes his loyalty to himself and whoever gives him the time of day.

If you layan him, he is very happy and will be friendly towards you. But if you don’t listen to his advice, then he gets all worked up.

Of course, some people argue that he has crossed over to BN and that is his choice. Maybe they find him more useful in bringing down the Opposition but he is nothing more than someone who puts his views across on his blog.

He is not the Leader of the Opposition, an Opposition which has managed to shake BN’s hegemony. Anwar is the leader and therefore the PM should show some spine and debate him.

But asking Najib Razak to show some spine would be asking too much. So Najib now takes this side issue of Anwar not debating the blogger as his escape route.

After more than 50 years, this is what Malaysia has been left with: a prime minister unable to act prime ministerial and constantly looking for his script from public relations advisors. — The Malaysian Insider, 19 March 2012

Nice bunch of NLPs lobbed Raja faux-Jew. Inside-outside man eh RPK? If you are so YM, then return to Malaysia. Otherwise it’s RPK till then for hiding in a whiteman’s land. Besides the YM only counts in Malaysia unless on official recognized visits elsewhere. Meanwhile the readers can enjoy the counter version of RPK’s NLPs below :

Who are Malays? Malays are less than nothing. The Malays are pendatang. This country belongs to the Indians and Chinese (northern part Chinese) (southern part indian). Don’t be so sombong. If Malays don’t like it Malays can go back to Yunnan or Indonesia. Don’t try to demand this and that. Stop treating non-Malays less than equal. Malays are not even equal. Indians and Chinese are first-class citizens. Malays are second-class citizens.

Hope that ‘heals up’ the NLP unaware who were subtly insulted. Now Malaysia knows why RPK isn’t here, RPK is playing all sides against each other (guess for who?), and are not interested in the well being of nation at all. A pretend runaway working against equality at the end of everything. I still have hopes for those 20 candidates in MCLM, and am glad that Dr.Tengku Haris Ibrahim has left the movement. RPK, you’re as treacherous as they are subverted by. We’ll see if the 20 MCLM candidates can endorse with intent to grant :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

Otherwise RPK will eventually be remembered as the strawman within 3rd Force.

Guan Eng As Dong Jiao Zong’s Linguistic Role Model – by Helen Ang – Wednesday, 21 March 2012 13:51

Perhaps the Dong Jiao Zong decision to align with DAP comes from a belief that some of Lim Guan Eng’s “shine” could rub off on the Chinese education movement.

To understand why the Chinese educationists should think so, we need to revisit the Chua Soi Lek-Lim Guan Eng debate on Feb 18 that was organised by the Asian Strategic Leadership Institute (Asli).

As everyone knows, the great debate on our two-race system was held in Mandarin. Asli director Michael Yeoh told a press conference that the language medium “was changed to Mandarin following Lim’s request”.

On Feb 23, Guan Eng released the English translation of his debate speech.

Speaking to the packed hall and televised audience nationwide, Guan Eng accused BN of dividing the rakyat into Malays and non-Malays.

Guan Eng also told his listeners: “In BN, Umno only takes care of the Malays, MCA only takes care of the Chinese, MIC only takes care of the Indians, Gerakan… I don’t know takes care of who???…. That’s BN with their “you take care of your race, I take care of my race”. That is a two-race system! Conversely, in a two-party system, we are all brothers and sisters, we take care of each other; every Malaysian is part of one big family!”

Guan Eng’s claim that Malays, Chinese and other ethnicities “are all brothers and sisters” is the type of vocabulary reflecting his party’s Christian evangelist thrust. As is his preaching “every Malaysian is part of one big family!”

Never mind that the family members attend different schools, eat in different places (halal / pork served here), practice different religions (ummah / kafir dzimmi*), possess different psyches, etc. etc.

Guan Eng’s self-proclaimed success

Replying to a participant during the debate’s Q & A session, Guan Eng told the floor: “After March 2008, everyone can see, touch and feel the changes that have happened. In Peninsular Malaysia, the first dual lingual road signs in Chinese were erected in Penang.”

Please applaud Guan Eng’s achievement for “the first dual lingual road signs in Chinese [that] were erected in Penang” after Pakatan took over the state.

If we were to go by Guan Eng’s yardstick, countries like Germany, France and the rest that do not have bilingual signs for their road names would be disgracefully lacking in national ‘Firstness’. [In Berlin, I saw road names carrying the word ‘Strasse’ (Jalan) monolingually and in Paris I saw they are ‘Rue’ (Jalan) monolingually too.]

Guan Eng, unlike “Umno only taking care of Malays” made his sales pitch that “we [Malaysian Firsters] take care of each other” in the Astro live telecast. According to our country demographic, three-quarters of television viewers would not have understood the language in which he spoke.

The DAP secretary general could have elected for the debate to be in Mandarin because he speaks bahasa kebangsaan rather poorly. The MCA president, on the other hand, is a fluent speaker of Malay and hence either BM or English would not have been an obstacle for Dr Chua.

What takes the cake is Guan Eng’s logic-defying challenge to his opponent: “Chua Soi Lek’s refusal to release his own debate transcript in Bahasa Malaysia and English will only prove to non-Chinese speaking Malaysians that he focused on making personal attacks, lies and adopted divisive tactics during the historic Mandarin [debate].”

In the first place, if only Guan Eng had not insisted that the debate be conducted in Mandarin, then his quibble about Dr Chua failing to translate – in order to “prove to non-Chinese speaking Malaysians” – would have been a moot point.

So why didn’t Guan Eng remember about the “non-Chinese speaking Malaysians” to begin with?

In truth, Guan Eng’s nimble antics surrounding the above debate is merely characteristic of his party’s duplicitous approach to policy and political affairs.

He makes the accusation that “BN divides the people into Malays and non-Malays” but his own party since obtaining power has been boasting non-stop that it gave the bumiputera a larger quota than the ruling party ever did.

Aren’t the categories of bumiputera and non-bumiputera similarly “dividing the people” into two separate categories akin to the BN coalition formula that Guan Eng criticizes?

Yet DAP refuse to acknowledge their own adherence to the ‘bumiputera and non’ concept which is not dissimilar to the ‘Malays and non’ cleavage Guan Eng slams Umno for practising.

This bipolar personality disorder of the DAP is obviously a necessary playacting to reassure Malay voters that the privileges they’ve been enjoying would not be threatened in the event the community hands over Putrajaya to Pakatan.

DJZ hooking up with DAP

I had posted earlier in my blog that Dong Jiao Dong allowing DAP’s involvement in their March 25 rally would only serve to politicize the gathering as confrontational. I also noted that DAP’s unerring combativeness is not likely to yield a negotiated remedy to the DJZ requests.

A reader of mine commented in response that DJZ being confrontational now does not deviate from how this Chinese education movement had always been in the past and even when they had the backing of MCA and Gerakan who are the Chinese representatives within the establishment.

Going back to Guan Eng’s debate speech, he complained that “MCA only takes care of the Chinese, MIC only takes care of the Indians”.

Since he and his party – unlike the “racist” MCA, the “racist” MIC, the “racist” Umno and the “racist” everybody else seen through their DAP speck-free eyes – consider themselves to be Malaysian par excellence, it’s quite strange, isn’t it, why we’ve never heard them promoting the Malaysian First language.

Or is DAP unaware that Article 152 of the Federal Constitution spells out the national language? By the way, this 152 is that very same language that is the least and the one most minimally used by Guan Eng if you were to look at all his public speeches uploaded to YouTube.

Hanyu is the medium of instruction in ‘Chinese school’. [Alongside is the mainline education stream called Sekolah Kebangsaan.]

Various official sources cite the particular statistics that more than 90 percent of Chinese parents send their children to Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina).

DJZ’s data say also that 90 percent of SRJK (C) enrolment comprises Chinese pupils. Taken together, these facts indicate that the vernacular schooling system is a communal vested interest of the Chinese.

Thus it’s perfectly understandable that MCA – the Malaysian ‘Chinese’ Association – should be concerned about Chinese schools.

When Hindraf voice their grievances about Tamil schools and other race-specific (i.e. Indian) issues, the DAP camp is quick to vilify them as “racists” and “extreme” in possessing such a communal mindset. When Malays just mention the word ‘race’, they’re immediately branded “supremacists” by Chinese opposition supporters.

DAP take pride in positioning themselves as ‘beyond race’ and above the pettiness of the communalists (i.e. those who do not appear to object to the race label).

Previously Guan Eng had declared: “The time has come for all Malaysians to look at each other as fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children faced with similar problems and filled with common hopes and aspirations. For this reason, whilst I will meet with any group seeking a dialogue, I am not keen to initiate discussions on my own with organisations based on a purely communal instead of a Malaysian agenda.” (see ‘BN’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde‘ in Malaysiakini)

Err, what is it again that DAP defines as the “Malaysian agenda” — be it in the field of national education, national integration and what not?

How is it that DJZ has been led to believe that DAP, which places paramount emphasis on a “Malaysian agenda”, can be of much help to the education movement’s communal demands being met?

Can anyone refresh our memory on what DAP has ever done for Chinese culture and education?

But more pertinently, what does DJZ expect DAP to be able to achieve on March 25 and thereafter?

Can anyone refresh our memory on what DAP has ever done for Chinese culture and education? Classic.

Thank you Helen Ang for making so much clear in a single sentence. DAP is nominally after all no longer  Chinese being Xian (and hence loyal to the Xian Capitals nominally Aramea if not the Vatican) , and a potential Zionist lobby like PAP under the Lee Clan is ASEAN’s same version. DJZ would be better off fielding their own independent candidates than associating with the nepotistic oligarchs of DAP which cannot keep campaign promises and has abused power and refused to amend laws and has limitless terms and family blocs. Even in the corporate world of private companies nepotistic family blocs are frowned on, in a political party accountable to the people of a country, limitless terms nepotistic  behaviour or oligarchy is just shameless and unacceptable.

The social inbreeding in companies and political parties . . .

Ethics, especially in publicly accountable outfits like political parties determines propensity for corruption and abuse of power (DAP has abused power extensively the last time and currently while in power . . . ), DAP is not a safe choice where the nepotists and family blocs are MPs, BUT where all other DAP MPs or assemblymen not nepotistic, part of cliques, family blocs  or term limitless, keep voting them in! To remind, the REAL ISSUES again below :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

Any race or faith and any party believing in the above 3 items and condemning nepotism, condemning oligarchy, condemning limitless terms is votable. If there is no such candidate, run for candidacy yourself voters.
