US election: Joe Kennedy III aims to return political dynasty to Washington – The moment Joe Kennedy III steps into the church hall he is thronged by jubilant elderly women and the ghosts of his family. – by Raf Sanchez, Somerset, Massachusetts – 8:18PM BST 14 Oct 2012

Their spirits appear in different forms – one woman produces a lovingly-preserved photograph of Senator Ted Kennedy in his prime, another offers a half-remembered childhood memory about an early JFK election rally – but they travel with the young congressional candidate everywhere he goes.

“The Kennedys still just means so much to people here,” says Arlene Silvia, a 61-year-old nurse, as she watches Robert Kennedy’s grandson shake hands and laugh off-well intentioned suggestions that he begin running for president.

“And he looks just like them. Well, except for the red hair.”

Mr Kennedy, still only 32, is running for Congress in Massachusetts’s Fourth district and is determined to prove he has more to offer than just his famous name and his striking resemblance to some of the best-known figures in American politics.

“It’s important for me that people understand that I’m running – it’s not my grandfather, it’s not my father it’s not either one of my grandfather’s brothers or or anyone else in my family,” he told the Daily Telegraph at the end of his fourth campaign event of the day.

“It’s my name on the ballot and I have got to go out there and let people know who I am and what I stand for.”

For now he is a largely blank slate that others project onto. The Harvard Law School graduate served briefly in the Peace Corps, a US government programme to send volunteers to developing countries, and worked for only two years as a state prosecutor before announcing his congressional bid, creating little record for voters to judge.

On the trail he is unfailingly polite, to the point of being old-fashioned, and greets voters with the question: “Do you have any advice for me?” But he is also possessed with a quiet confidence in his ideas and his ability to sell them.

At one point he purposefully marches up to a house that with a yard sign professing support for Scott Brown, the state’s Republican senator. “That’s bold,” murmurs one of his staff as they watch him trot up the path. Moments later the candidate returns to report another confirmed Kennedy voter.

The family is also out in support of their newest candidate. Ted Kennedy Jr, the barrel-chested son of the late Massachusetts senator, described his cousin as part of a “new generation” that he hopes will pick up the banner of unashamed liberalism his father carried during a 47-year Senate career.

Standing amid a throng of volunteers, the older man said Mr Kennedy was ready for the “vicious scrutiny” that comes with the family name. “He knows how demanding this life can be but he also knows the good that can come out of it. We’re lucky to have people like Joe,” he said.

In between Mr Kennedy and the “Camelot” era of the 1960s, lies a generation of the family wracked by tragedy but also tarnished by scandal and who made a relatively minor mark on American public life. The latest Kennedy candidate is teetotal, famously opting for milk while his university lacrosse team mates would down endless pints of beer.

Sean Bielat, the former US Marine running against Mr Kennedy, is visibly frustrated as he describes his election rival as “a guy with a famous name and no qualifications”.

“A little over two centuries ago Massachusetts fought against this whole hereditary monarchy thing and now some people embrace it,” he said.

Mr Bielat is also scathing about Mr Kennedy’s reluctance to take part in major televised debates, agreeing to a second face-off only after coming under intense political pressure. “You should have to prove the reason people are voting for you, you should have to justify your candidacy and get out and defend it.”

Sean Bielat, the former US Marine running as a Republican in the Fourth District

Lew Flagg, a local Republican activist, puts it even more sharply: “The Kennedys are like a cult around here. I know people who are pro-choice and want low taxes and they will still vote Kennedy just because of the name.”

Whether November 6 will be an election or a coronation in the Fourth District is a matter of debate. Mr Bielat ran hard against Barney Frank, the seat’s current Democrat, in 2010 and this year has benefitted from boundary changes making the constituency marginally more conservative.

However, Mr Kennedy holds an enormous financial advantage, allowing him to afford one-minute television ads – described as “Dr Zhivago-length” for a congressional candidate. And while there have been no recent public polls, the campaign makes clear it believes it is well ahead.

Mr Frank, a hero to Democrats’ liberal wing for his championing of gay rights and financial reform, is loath to offer his potential successor public advice, but warns that the Kennedy name alone will not carry him over the finish line.

“It gets him access. But if he wasn’t able to prove himself beyond that then it could easily backfire,” says Mr Frank, who has represented the district since 1981.

For now, the young scion of America’s most famous political dynasty says he will continue going to doorsteps and making clear that he is his own man.

Asked what the best bit of advice he has taken from his family’s archive of campaign wisdom, he replies: “If you don’t know what to do, go knock on a door, go knock on 100 doors. When you’ve finished people might have yelled and screamed at you but you will know what’s on their mind and you will know what you need to do.”

Setting a bad example to the 3rd world nations that dream of forming satrapies out of political seats, passed down from father to son, even expanding into bureaucracy, until one day the Americans will find that all that remains are 50 entrenched Governors and family blocs in all the local enforcement and local state departments to cause corruption and ‘inside jobs’ and unaccountability and opacity no end due to family ties . . . par excellence Monarchs who will later turn on the USA if convenient because nepotism minded people who have no love of their fellow citizens cannot be trusted as goodly allies.

who have no love of their fellow citizens cannot be trusted as goodly allies. Theres your ethical excceptionalism, and opposing the same ethical exceptionalism is MEDIOCRITY of Malaysia’s term limitless, nepotistic WORST who do not gice credit where is due and for love of fundamentalism and hate of minorities, choose to destroy woukd be allies. Can the USA trust people like that, especially when the hudud-phenotype infiltration has proven so serious? Give orders to these idiot 3rd worlders to push for :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

;before another Human Rights snowball turns into an avalanche from sheer apathy, the disgust of politics of expedience and poor natured and undemocratic ingrates in high positions.

Shame on the people who intend to vote for Kennedy and encourage NEPOTISM! Democracy’s death by the term limited redcoat nepotist! Study China and Russia’s prohibitions on nepotism Americans!

Obama Throws Hillary Under The Bus – Clintons Furious – October 13, 2012 by Tim Brown

It appears that Barack Obama is ready to let Secretary of State Clinton take the fall for the failure in security in Benghazi. During the vice-presidential debate on Thursday it became clear that is what the agenda was.

There is no doubt that is part of her responsibility in that role. According to the State Department’s website:

The Secretary of State, and by extension, the Chief of Mission (COM), are responsible for developing and implementing security policies and programs that provide for the protection of all U.S. Government personnel (including accompanying dependents) on official duty abroad. This mission is executed through the Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS). Personal and facility protection are the most critical elements of the DS mission abroad as they directly impact upon the Department’s ability to carry out its foreign policy. With terrorist organizations and coalitions operating across international borders, the threat of terrorism against U.S. interests remains great. Therefore, any U.S. mission overseas can be a target even if identified as being in a low-threat environment.

As a result, DS is more dedicated than ever to its mission of providing a secure living and working environment for our Foreign Service colleagues as they implement foreign policy and promote U.S. interests around the world. Nearly 800 DS special agents serve in regional security offices at over 250 posts worldwide. The DS special agents, also called regional security officers (RSOs) when serving abroad, manage security programs and also provide the first line of defense for our personnel, their families, U.S. diplomatic missions, and national security information. RSOs serve as the primary advisor to the COM on all security matters by developing and implementing security programs that shield U.S. missions and residences overseas from physical and technical attack.

It seems that there is a legitimate reason for the Obama administration to throw Clinton under the bus on this one and it seems that everyone is on board with it, including Vice President Joe Biden. Foreign Policy reports,

Vice President Joseph Biden speaks only for himself and President Barack Obama, and neither man was aware that U.S. officials in Libya had asked the State Department for more security before the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, a top White House official told The Cable.

Biden has come under fire for saying at Thursday night’s debate, “We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there.”

The Cable asked Deputy National Security Advisor for Communications Ben Rhodes whether Biden was speaking for the entire Obama administration, including the State Department, which acknowledged receiving multiple requests for more Libya security in the months before the attacks. Rhodes said that Biden speaks only for himself and the president and neither of them knew about the requests at the time.

The State Department security officials who testified before House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s panel Wednesday never said they had made their requests to the president, Rhodes pointed out. That would be natural because the State Department is responsible for diplomatic security, not the White House, he said. Rhodes also pointed out that the officials were requesting more security in Tripoli, not Benghazi.

But, if you think that Hillary Clinton is going down without a fight, you would be sorely mistaken. Already former President Bill Clinton has stepped in to give his wife some aid in the matter.

Ed Klein at the Daily Caller writes,

My sources tell me that Clinton is working on a strategy that will allow Hillary to avoid having Benghazi become a stain on her political fortunes should she decide to run for president in 2016.

Bill Clinton has even gone so far as to seek legal advice about Hillary’s liability in terms of cables and memos that might be subpoenaed by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which this week launched an investigation into the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The committee will also examine the apparent Obama administration cover-up that followed the Benghazi attack.

Finally, I’m told that Bill is playing with various doomsday scenarios, up to and including the idea that Hillary should consider resigning over the issue if the Obama team tries to use her as a scapegoat. That seems unlikely to happen. But if relations between Obama’s White House and Hillary’s State Department rupture publicly over the growing Benghazi scandal, that could damage the Democratic ticket and dim Obama’s chances for re-election.

Barack Obama has taken some initiative to protect his Attorney General Eric Holder, though it is possibly because of his own involvement in Operation Fast and Furious. It’s quite possible that Clinton is the one that not only knew of the need for extra security for the Libyan ambassador, but that she made the decision to not provide it.

Confidence based on culture of impunity borne of nepotism. Hillary gives the foul ups among bureaucrats a place to hide knowing full well Hillary’s position is virtually untouchable or if Hillary has to take the fall, nothing will effectively happen to Hillary – at most Hillary loses that Secretary of State job, which will  do nothing to her very pleasant life (no ill wishes there, just concerned about the USA setting bad examples for the 3rd world) . . .

Will the rest of the Clintons run for office too? Redneck alert! People who do not understand what nepotism and ethics are had better study what is happening in the worst of ASEAN or the Middle East or Africa. Obama should try to forward a bill for Congressmen and Governors to ratify AGAINST nepotism or families controlling entire blocs of the government generation after generation – this is everyone else’s country too and everyone needs to have their turn at the wheel . . .

Obama is the good guy here for ‘throwing Hillary under the bus’ . . . Hillary will not even feel that throw. Too wealthy, too long in power, too well buffered so don’t worry voters! Get in there instead and have yourself a turn as Secretary of State! Other women (also remember men who obviously are qualified) should have a go at being ‘Hillary’, I mean Secretary of State . . . and I don’t mean those related to the Clintons or any other political term limitless junta!

Meanwhile most parts of USA turn into some 3rd world Junta state? The Clintons and Kennedys should know better and act accordingly, the country belongs to everyone not a handful of families where crony capitalism then corruption occurs . . . democratic principles would expect at least this much forethought and consideration for the other American citizens who are qualified and would like to try their hand at running the USA! Not term limitless relatives and family members ad nauseum! Incidental or ‘accidental’ nepotism is no better than direct nepotism! The relatives will always ‘happen to be there’, or will be ‘conveniently experienced’ if no prohibitions are in place! These are aspects of democracy that China and Russia are well versed in that cause them to write laws as above links prevent!

Nepotism (even indirect nepotism), like term limitlessness is low minded, low class, and an insecure behaviour that must be blocked and removed from government to prevent juntas and term limitless oligarchies from forming that corrupt and destroy laws, and prevent participation from regular citizens. USA has term limits for the President but the term limit law does not cover Governorships, Congressmen seats, Majors and Senators (Upper House is SOOOO Tory and Bluecoat as a concept) and effectively prevents the 99% of Americans from participating in democracy if the particular seat holder does not leave for decades or keeps shifting from seat to seat and post to post WITH relatives to boot everywhere else.

Think American voters and get the right minded people who will place prohibitions via term limits on everything even in bureaucracy, INCLUDING prohibitions on immediate relatives or the immediate next generation (more generations the better) from holding those non-peripheral/non-political posts in turn after they have earned their 401K or had 2 terms in any post (i.e. 2 terms then another 2 terms elsewhere, then another 2 term posting, much less decades on any seat is STILL nepotism and undemocratic, destroys 99% participation . . . these are the less obvious satrapies in the US government that are particularly pronounced in many 3rd world countries).

Ashley Greene Says “‘Twilight’ Has Ruined Me’ – by ABC News | ABC News Blogs – 16th October 2012

Most people would love the perks that come with being a star of a hit movie, but Ashley Greene of “Twilight” fame admits in a new interview with Marie Claire magazine that getting the VIP treatment does have a downside.

“‘Twilight’ has ruined me. When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost,” Greene said.

With the end of the “Twilight” saga in sight, Ashley, who portrays Alice Cullen, realizes it’s important to be smart about her finances.

“I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs,” she said.

Ashley tells Marie Claire it was “a hard adjustment” when she found herself on the celebrity fast track, especially when it came to talking with friends.

“It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day. But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk. After the movie [‘Twilight’] came out, some people said, ‘You changed.’ And I said, ‘I haven’t changed, dude,” she said. “Your opinion of me has changed because I’m working on this film.’ Trust me, my parents would let me know.”

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

Trust me, my parents would let me know?  ‘Lost all street cred’ alert anyone? Ashley’s really uncool to talk like this. A better choice in casting next time? Twilight is for feckless and predatory vampires not ‘my parents would let me know’ types. This sort of mindset type should be on ‘Beverly Hillbillies’ maybe but not ‘Twilight’! Is Hollywood trying to push nepotism obtusely?

Female care home manager who boasted of S&M sessions and flashed at pensioners faces being struck off – by Alex Ward – PUBLISHED: 12:51 GMT, 18 October 2012 | UPDATED: 14:35 GMT, 18 October 2012

Lesley Weir showed colleagues marks on her body
She faces being struck off over her actions at Amerind Grove home in Ashton, Bristol
She bent a colleague over a desk to spank him, the hearing heard

A female care home manager faces being struck off after boasting about ‘unspeakable’ sadomasochistic sex acts to colleagues and flashing her breasts at pensioners.

Lesley Weir also showed colleagues marks on her breasts, buttocks and upper thighs and bent a colleague over a desk to spank him, a hearing was told.

A conduct and competence committee found all but one allegation against the Bupa employee was proved. She was cleared of asking a colleague ‘is she dead yet?’, about a cancer patient.

Misconduct: Lesley Weir faces being struck off after flashing pensioners while managing the Amerind Grove home (pictured) in Ashton, Bristol

The Nursing and Midwifery Council must now decide whether her actions while manager between February 2008 and August 2010 at Amerind Grove home in Ashton, Bristol, amounted to misconduct and whether her fitness to practise is impaired.

A former colleague told the hearing: ‘On one occasion, she told me about being abused over a car bonnet in a car park.

‘This was what she wanted to happen. She talked of a number of sexual partners and involved BDSM [Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, Masochism], sadomasochistic sex, where Lesley was the slave and her partner was the master.

‘She showed us bruises she got from her sexual activity and was quite open when sat in the reception area.’

Nurse who administered fatal dose of salt to premature baby and posted picture of herself asleep next to his cot on Facebook is found guilty of misconduct

The workmate, who has been granted anonymity by the hearing, said he was scared to report Weir for fear she would lose her temper.

He also told how Weir had spanked him on two separate occasions, including in her office.

Another former colleague said Weir had proudly showed off bruises on her buttocks and breasts, and talked of the ‘unspeakable things’ she liked having done to her.

The hearing also heard how Weir had lifted her skirt to flash a couple of pensioners as they visited a friend admitted at the home.

‘Unspeakable’ sex acts: Weir told a former colleague about the number of sexual partners she had and bondage and sadomasochistic sex (file photo)

Terry Lewis, 76, said he had complained underwear belonging to their friend, a 93-year-old dementia sufferer, had gone missing, to which Weir retorted that he should be ‘on knicker inspection’.

She then told the man he could inspect her underwear first ‘because I’m not wearing any’ before lifting her skirt.

The nurse was sacked from the home after bosses discovered that she had pocketed £900 of rent paid by a nurse who lived in a flat above the home.

Weir stuffed the envelopes of cash into her diary instead of passing them to the home’s accountant and handed the money back when she was discovered in August 2010 claiming she always intended to pay it back.

Weir, who is not attending the central London hearing, wrote to the NMC admitting the majority of charges, but denied flashing her buttocks or asking if the patient was ‘dead yet’.

If the panel find that her fitness to practise is impaired, she could be struck off the nursing register.

Mark Elliott, regional director, Bupa care homes said: ‘Even though no residents were involved, Lesley Weir’s actions were deplorable for someone in a position of such responsibility.

‘We dismissed her in 2010 and referred her to the NMC.’ The hearing continues.

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

No need to make Weir jobless. To practice democracy, ask for a vote, after which Weir must not act in this manner again (i.e. make inappropriate quips) and if doing so then will be fired. Scared to report Weir might be demogoguery though. Stuffed the envelopes of cash into her diary instead of passing them to the home’s accountant and handed the money back, means Weir can continue working there on condition that money must not be handled by Weir there anymore and appropriate apologies made to the offended parties. People act out for many reasons, but nursing has nursing’s own brand of guilt ridden people who take up the profession and this should be taken into consideration.

Women: Can you flaunt too much cleavage? – Fashion & Beauty Home – Tuesday Jan 31 2012

Finding a dress you feel great in and which shows off your best assets is a Godsend, but when you reach a certain age, such a display of your charms seems to attract a backlash of criticism.

Witness the outcry over the sexy gown Carol Vorderman wore to last week’s National Television Awards. While the 51-year-old Loose Women presenter’s Suzanne Neville corseted dress showed off a figure the envy of many women half her age, there was still much muttering that, really, Vorderman should do the maths and cover up. Still, she joins a growing number of older ladies happy to take the plunge on a night out.

Our own columnist Pamela Ballantine often shows off her fabulous embonpoint in glitzy gowns while the gorgeous Tracey Hall wore a daring dress to the recent Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year awards. We talk to them and others about putting on a bold front.

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

Flaunting is an attitude not a state of dress or undress. Think nudists and beach goers in bikinis then consider ‘too much’. The attitude and way one moves is actual flaunting. That is how even burkah clad women who’s eyes can’t even be seen can be raped when totally covered. Nudism in this consideration is an exercise of discipline. What is worn or not worn never has anything to do with flaunting. This article is a sign of a very materialist type of society, very unspiritual and visual oriented!

Just the head of the model is shown but the innuendo is the key to sexual content here. Flaunting is the same, not about what one can see, but how one presents anything. (i.e. on background settings : Nudism could be considered pure if thinking along Adam-Eve lines in a forested setting – so leave those ‘naturist ramblers’ alone, but under the neon of the RLD, nudity becomes sexual instead if not burlesque at least.) . . . This posting by the way, is no endorsement of fast food costing more than USD$1 a meal (or in the local currency of the place a fast food outlet appears in – exchange rate considerations are a rip off, especially in the 3rd world (where spiritually polluting/polluted teens flex their ‘muscles’ for all the wrong reasons to the demise of democracy and those on the wrong side of reality . . . much like Inequality/Dhimmutude  accepting Ambiga who also got to enjoy ‘buns’ . . . )

Ink addicts need not apply: Met Police BANS recruits with ‘thuggish’ visible tattoos and orders existing officers to submit for inspection – by Chris Greenwood – PUBLISHED: 22:25 GMT, 16 October 2012 | UPDATED: 09:23 GMT, 17 October 2012

Maybe not for the Toff Districts but A Chav or Hoodie district might very well need tattooed cops.

Bernard Hogan-Howe says body art damages Met’s ‘professional image’
Rank-and-file officers claim police should reflect the public they serve

Arresting tattoos: A Lothian and Borders police officer with extensive tattoos. He may fall foul of the new guidelines if it spreads to other forces

Police recruits to Britain’s largest force were banned yesterday from having visible tattoos in a sweeping reform of its public image.

Scotland Yard Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe said body art that can be seen by the public ‘damages the professional image’ of the service.

And he ordered a ‘tattoo amnesty’ in which anyone who already has marks on their hands, neck or face must declare them within weeks or be sacked.The ban comes amid increasing concern among senior ranks nationwide over complaints from crime victims that some young officers appear ‘thuggish’.

They are particularly worried about the trend for tattoo ‘sleeves’ in which wrap-around tattoos are inked along the arm.

But rank-and-file representatives claim associating tattoos with criminals is old-fashioned and police should reflect the public they serve.

Don’t discriminate against MEN (or in this case Hindoos or people who believe in the ‘Sampson Theory’). Perhaps a ‘meet halfway’ solution. In low rent districts cops can grow facial hair to match toughness, in toff districts only officers and above are allowed to grow facial hair. What’s the Orwellian state trying to emasculate this time? Even the cops who actually inadvertently or knowingly support the dictators? So cops can’t grow a beard but politicians can? Smackdown time alongside the 99% rather than against you ‘pigs’ . . .

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

Rank and file opinions are applicable to a point. There will be suitable ‘tough’ districts for tattooed constables but in the ‘toffier’ ones, tattoos should be forbidden. Perhaps UNIFORM ‘police’ tattoos could be allowed, or even the uniforms in ‘rough’ districts could feature sleeveless or allow jeans or ‘ripped’ trousers specifically to convey a sense of ‘tough”. Those police helmets too are actually laughable in such districts and could be replaced with simple (backwards turned? caps). Cops decked out in ‘beefeater/colonial’ only grate on the chav sensitivities of ‘low life’ in such districts and make cops look and feel stupid, lowers respect from the ‘ghetto dwellers’.

Might as well outfit the cops in lace doilies and furbelows carrying the Royal banner . . . the low lifes would just want to egg them instead (which in fact work retrogressively to distract by entertaining the ‘lowlife’ who might be doing worse crime). Heck even posting about royalty then later subcultural memes in a certain 3rd world country had an entire state in a certain 3rd world area up in arms against a certain individual who had dressed down for decades to fit in with the local trash whom I won’t mention . . . incongruity is a factor that makes the police not fit in here. Spiffy uniforms in a gaggle of the obnoxiously loudly branded toting rag wearing dregs of society, might be better off as plainclothes posing as the regular ‘low life’ instead who will doubtless be reognized in time but can still be effective even if out of uniform. Uniforms forster ‘us vs. them’ culture that destroys low wealth to police camaraderie.

Probably there will be many less disciplined cops ‘wanting’ to be posted to tough districts out of sheer desire for lack of discipline, but the toughest districts in fact should have the most disciplined officers sent there instead! If rank-and-file representatives claim associating tattoos with criminals is old-fashioned and police should reflect the public they serve, then the above suggestion should be applied. Tattoos allowed but only in tough districts! Helmets and full uniform, with no tattoos in ‘tough’ districts!

Body art that can be seen by the public (also facial hair, tattoos, ‘kinked’ uniforms and piercings – approachable conversational pieces) helps the professional image’ of the police, but only in tough districts.

China bans profiteering from religious activity – 10-23-2012 01:16 BJT

BEIJING, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) — The State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA) on Monday called on local authorities to “resolutely ban” any acts of profiteering related to religious activity.

The administration also told government departments not to allow or support any contract operation, equity investment or joint investment conducted by enterprises or individuals at religious sites.

The SARA said in a statement issued jointly with nine other authorities on Monday that some local governments, enterprises and individuals have made religion a profitable instrument by building new religious sites for profit, hiring fake monks or clergy to conduct illegal religious activities and collect religious endowments, as well as tricking or forcing visitors to surrender their money.

Moreover, some companies have invested in popular religious sites and categorized them as listed assets, the statement said.

Such practices have disturbed the order of religious activity, impaired the interests and image of the religious circle, hurt the feelings of believers and violated the rights of other visitors, the statement said.

The authorities vowed serious punishment for government officials who are found to be involved in such practices.

Religious affairs should be administered exclusively by their respective circles under the supervision of relevant government departments, the statement said.

The authorities also asked for a thorough check of the country’s registered religious venues to eliminate violations.

No organization or site other than legally registered ones are allowed to organize or hold religious activities or to accept religious endowments, the statement said.

Furthermore, the statement said all clergy should be qualified by relevant religious organizations and register at administrative organs for religious affairs at the county level or above.

The authorities will investigate cases of fake clergy conducting religious services, seize any illegal gains and punish violators, the statement said.

The statement also called for tourism enterprises and tourist guides to avoid recommending for-profit worship sites.

Bureaucrats are no supposed to be doing business either in GLC or Private, much less religious profiteering. This way separation of powers is assured and that the state will not become a Theocracy as the Dalai Lama intends for Tibet. Real religion is about discipline and fasting and seriousness of life, the pain of life, the contemplation of death, the problems of the world and failings of society or law – NOT profit. The state meanwhile though should ensure that the minimum housing and food are at least assured for ALL people, so that the criminal minded do not turn to using religion as a tool to ‘work the system’ by in collusion with bureaucrats (who already have an ‘Iron Rice Bowl’) especiallym or the lazy congregate as ‘minks’ simply out of having no choice in life because the unsused state land is sequestered and unrealeased/prohibited by state or because all jobs are held by the relatives of cronies and term limitless politicians who are insanely wealthy while the 99% don’t even have homes and have no right to access mineral, plantation or oil wealth for example which are owned by a handful of nepotistic and term limitless and generational political families – feudal satrapy style par excellence Oligarchy-form monarchs.

As for the Tibetan ‘way of discussion’ which monks display, those featured on various documentaries are probably having a very low level discussion? When one is in truly deep issues (which looks impossible under the conditions in the pictures), one has no time to pose, twirl and slap or what not, much less with broad smiles.

If religion is propaganda in any way, this profane, almost loutish attitude, in what are supposed religious discussions appear to be exceptionally lighthearted. And besides the most meaningful discussions occur WITHIN contemplation ALONE, not without with distracting persons whom which greater insight cannot be obtained. Monks are silent excepting when giving sermons, because they obtain the truth from contemplation with the ether/Akhasic  (not talking to people around them) then transmit to the world. This is not religion, this is posturing and posing to catch the attention of the young. Young people CANNOT be religious workers or in the order unless they make a conscious choice when adult and only after experiencing enough of the world’s stupidity and mental illness first hand. State religion is enforced, and this Bon Sect looks ‘popularised’ and a crony industry, a ‘Theocrat-Building Contractor-CapitalisCronyBureaucrat Complex’ if anything.

Introducing Netzero’s Free Service

Net Zero’s fabulous service but with typical irritating comment design/culture . . .

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

‘Back’ button habit. Also when ‘back’ is used, the more obtrusive sites tend to flash ads (like this one) or require the reader to press ‘back’ a few times. One may consider buying, but might be looking for a list of places where the ‘netbook stick’ can be bought directly rather than online. The ‘re-enter Email Address’ feels quite ‘demanding’ and obtrusive, but perhaps this is to ensure bots do not proliferate and sabotage Net Zero. As for the ‘SUBMIT’ button, note that there is an NLP propaganda war/wave on internet and MSM . . . HEREON being prevented from replying because of ‘lack of space’, we will continue below . . . the lack of response space was offensive and caused me to not post this comment.

However I find a free NetZero service very appealing, so Netzero will still get to hear from me. Finally consumers prefer UNLIMITED space to respond when responses are asked for and should not be limited to any number of words. Which effectively signals a cut off of the user in mid response (or mid sentence).

This form though is a failure and I would like Netzero instead to read the below link :

;as I was typing before the rude lack of space continuing from :

* I note that there is an NLP propaganda wave * . . . that the internet has been manipulatively inculating a sense of Orwellian psychological manipulation towards obeisance. To not be accused of indulging this offensive behaviour, the use of words must be chosen carefully. To use the word SUBMIT, indicates an intent to dominate subconsciously if not consciosuly via NLP. Instead use neutral words like RESPOND.

The above feedback IMHO is highly value added and I would like for NetZero to take ito account and change accordingly to even better NetZeros offer of 0.00 for services. I would advise an interim service as well called Minimum. the gradation from 200 to 500 seems presumptuous and indicates server space.

Paul John Becomes First Caucasian Schamane Praeteritum – By Assyla Oldcomb | CBA News (Adopted from Various Articles)

Original Frankish-Germanic Religion : Baldr, son of Elder God Odin . . .

Paul John was named the first Caucasian Shaman today by Elder Shaman Iterakat IVX in a ceremony held in The Holy Tribal Circle. Some 80,000 people came to the open-air ceremony as the 17th century Mohawk-Algonquin woman and six others were canonized.

“It’s so nice to see the Sky-Father showing all the flavors of the world,” Cene Galdwell, a Native American member of the Menominee reservation in Elderpeak, Wis., who attended with his wife, told the Associated Press. “The Anglo-Saxons are enthralled.” The canonization ceremony happened at the same time the world’s Elder Shamans descended on the Tribal Council to discuss ways to revive faith in parts of the world where it is falling by the wayside.

Among some of the select faithful who were chosen to receive communion from the Chief Shaman was Eakf Binkjfeather. The Washington boy was near death for months with a flesh eating bacteria, but made a miraculous recovery that the Tribal Council credited to Tekakwitha. The Tribal Council said it believes that the prayers Eakf Binkjfeather’s family directed to Tekakwitha were responsible for bringing the boy back from the brink of death.

Eakf Binkjfeather cut his lip during the last minute of a Boys & Girls Club Atl-atl game in 2006.

“I was running down court with the ball, I stopped in front of the hoop to shoot when I was pushed from behind,” Eakf wrote on his website. “I flew forward and hit my mouth on the base of the portable basketball hoop.”

Two days later, he wrote, he was in the hospital with a strep bacteria infection that had spread across his face, head and chest.

“It’s a bacteria that can cause severe infections in unusual circumstances but most of us don’t ever have any problems with it,” said Dr. Christopher Ohl, a doctor at Skeep Forest Shaman Medical. “But if all of the circumstances come together and the setting is just right, it can get in through the skin and cause a severe infection.”

Ohl said the chance of survival for people with the bacteria is roughly 50-50. At the urging of the family’s priest, the Binkjfeathers began praying to Tekakwitha, who converted to native Native Ameri-Indian Shamanism when she was 18 and became a fervent follower. Her face was scarred by smallpox as a child, but it is claimed that the scars disappeared after she died in 1680 at the age of 24.

Großpriester (Germanic Elder) of the Neo-Pagan Order of Baldr, to name first Charlemagnean saint of Baldr. –  October 21st, 2012 – 02:07 AM ET

Sunday is a big day for Germanians. Großpriester Alois I, will name 17th century French general Napoleaon Nonaparte the first Charlemagnean saint of Baldr.

Another newly named saint is Annamarie Poce, a German-born woman who emigrated to the Catalans as a child, became a nun and went on to devote 30 years of her life helping lepers in England.

Their canonization, along with those of seven other saints, will be celebrated at a special Mass in Berlin’s CapSquare Sunday morning.

Fact : Why Christianity mocks Pagan Germanism at Chrismas with every single couple who kisses (inadvertant or knowingly Christians attack Germania) under the mistletoe . . .

Frigg lived to regret skipping the mistletoe. Her son now dwelt in the shadowy realm ruled by Loki’s daughter, Hel. And when the corpselike queen agreed that Baldr would revive if the entire world wept for him, a single holdout prevented the light god’s return. Moral of the story: mistletoe is for mischief, so skip the smooching. Mistletoe is deadly, not romantic. In fact, the plant is parasitic and poisonous, and its name may derive from the German for “dung branch.” This year, find proper uses for mistletoe – like binding your enemies, playing tug-of-war across a volcano, or weaving Viking-shaped lawn ornaments. Don’t kiss under/near it.

For certain the Christians have a repository of wisdom but much of that that wisdom is inaccurate, skewed, corrupted and even harmful. The true ‘Capital’ of Christianity is at Aramea NOT Rome, and Aramea lies in the north-west of modern Iran or the north-west of Persia (which was not Muslim and Zoroastrian instead . . . ). Rome was incidentally a stronghold of planetary-archon worship and NOT Monotheist micro-state, but instead a center of a massiveEmpire, saddening to see Rome being captive to Christians while neglecting the heart of Christianity at Aramea! Aramean is the true language of Christianity and not Italian, much like Arabic for Islam, and Hebrew for Judaism. What say Pope Benedict to the above facts? Could the ethnic Italian Pope have been living a lie all his life?

Canadian Town Sells $10 Plots of Land – by Abby Ellin | ABC News Blogs – Fri, Oct 19, 2012 8:04 AM EDT

(Getty Images)Got an extra ten bucks? If so, you, too, could be the owner of a sparkling new home in Reston, Manitoba, a rural prairie town in Southern Manitoba bordering Saskatchewan on the west and North Dakota on the south.

In an effort to jump on the oil boom in that part of the country, officials are once again selling undeveloped land for a mere $10, an initiative they first started in 2010. Back then they had 14 lots for sale, 11 of which have houses built on them today, economic development officer Tanis Chalmers told ABC News .

That plan was so successful that in September the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, of which Reston is the biggest town (population: 550), decided to put up an additional 10 lots for sale, along with the three left from 2010. Nine remain, “But I’ve had offers on them already from both Canada and the U.S,” said Chalmers, adding that the initiative has been so effective that the local school finally “has a standalone kindergarten class.”

Agriculture and oil are the main industries in the town, which was founded as a railway point for the Canadian Pacific Railway, but Chalmers says she hopes to attract small business, too. “We need to have supporting services to support the people living here and coming,” she said. “We’d like to see a new hotel here, a new restaurant, a bar.”

The plan is pretty straightforward: To purchase a property, wannabe homeowners have to sign an agreement and put down a $1,000 deposit. Once a lot is purchased, owners have 90 days to begin construction, and 12 months to complete it. As soon as the town receives your occupancy permit, they will refund $990 of the original down payment.

“You don’t have to live here full time, but you do need to put up a permanent structure,” said Chalmers.

As further incentive, the town is offering a $6,000 grant to people who’ve built a new house or purchased an existing home in the rural municipality. The grant, mind you, can be used for anything from home upgrades to a new car. Chalmers says taxes hover around $1,500 to $2,500 per year.

Todd Vanloo, who recently moved to Reston, told CTV that he was lured by the offer.

“We couldn’t pass up this opportunity of a house of this nature for this kind of money, and a lot for $10,” he said.

Even the hideous bank fees cost more in the USA than this $10 land. Who needs to tolerate foreclosures? As for taxes, actually, all 66.6% of the 99% people need to do is to vote for MPs who will remove those for properties worth 50K and below or an MP who will allow Allodial Titles which means NO TAXES after paying the single tax (which saves alot of administration and crony jobs for unecessary work as well). End of issue. Finally any court of law can easily understand that a property should not be taxable more than the value at which the property was last sold at. In the 1700s a few 10s of acres of land could be bought with a few silver dollars.

How could taxes be more than what the entire land was bought at originally? A country could in fact reward people for not moving around and creating organic communities as well as keep inflation down and development spread out. if people keep selling and packing up, we end up with over-priced over dense regions that are unliveable. More profiteering paradigms by which puppet masters no less. So vote on a MP for Allodial title criteria or taxes that do not exceed earnings or basic value. $2500 taxes when a property is worth $10? Ridiculous and unconstitutional! Perhaps 0.10 or 10 cents would be more fair but think, within 100 years the woner would have paid 100% in value AGAIN. Whats the point? Might as well go for allodial Titles and be done with the wasted paperwork, crony bureaucrat job and NEVER PAY PROPERTY TAX AGAIN. That’s a 30 year all paid at once, 1-off tax I believe, from what I remember.

So we will instead have people saving up over the years (no foreclosures for the non-profitable, the idea of a nation is not to run people off their land and homes for foreclosures), to pay single lump sums to end the paperwork FOREVER via Allodial Titles. Whats with all the lawyers? Never apply what you learn or just colluding to oppress and bleed the people and keep the crony bureaucrat system in place as well as waste peoples’ time running up and down the tax office paying taxes year after year at unfair levels? Vote for an MP that will forward and ratify Allodial Titles under penalty of vacating the political seat via Statuary Declaration! Think 99% ters and votre under such criterion!

‘I really look like an alien!’ Kelly Osbourne shows off bleached eyebrows and ultra-long black fingernails in new Gothic magazine shoot – by Eleanor Gower – PUBLISHED: 21:14 GMT, 19 October 2012 | UPDATED: 21:23 GMT, 19 October 2012

With her bleached eyebrows and ultra long black fingernails, Kelly Osbourne looks like she belongs in another world in a new set of striking photographs.

The 27-year-old star shows off her svelte figure in the Gothic-style seaside shoot for the autumn issue of Fault magazine, where she sports a floor-length black dress with lace detail.

Another photograph shows the star’s pale purple hair coiffed into an old fashioned front roll as she poses with black gloves and a high necked black top.

Gothic glamour: Kelly Osbourne shows off bleached eyebrows and black extended fingernails as she poses in black lace for a new magazine shoot for Fault magazine

Kelly tells the magazine in an accompanying interview that she was also initially thrown by her dramatic transformation, and was bemused at making headlines for her newly pale brows.

‘You know I’ve never done something so small that made world news, it actually blows my mind that that happened,’ she tells Fault. ‘I was having a laugh about it every time I looked in the mirror. I thought to myself, “I really do look like an Alien.”‘

The Fashion Police presenter admits to the publication that her goal is to be an individual when it comes to style.

‘I don’t want to look like anyone else,’ she says. ‘I want to be me rather than someone I’m supposed to be.’

A striking sight: Kelly told the magazine she felt her bleached eyebrows made her look like ‘an alien’

She advises readers to: ‘Try everything once – that’s what life is all about. That and making mistakes. You can always change things, i.e: my eyebrows!’

Growing up in a rock and roll environment with father Ozzy Osbourne and extroverted mother Sharon influenced Kelly’s style too.

‘This may sound like a cliché but rock and roll is all I know… knew,’ she says. ‘It’s not like my dad was a lawyer or had a typical 9-5 career. So there was no traditional normality.

‘My mom having such a love of fashion played a huge part, she loves theatre and older movies, so [Marilyn] Monroe and [Audrey] Hepburn were a big influence. Also, a lot of my earlier hair styles where directly taken from a book my mom had on Vidal Sassoon. I think I tried every cut in that book…

Alien?!? Thats it, Kelly’s off my ‘real goth’ list even if Kelly looks the makeup or clothing part (nice props!).

A real Goth does not feel alien. Nor is goth mainly about fingernails and accessories and dresses. Goth is about death and the glory of darkness, also the cool tones and cadences of lamenti for each relevant culture. Hanging around graveyards (preferably of the last generation of goths – perky spirits get them down, no daylight living commoners please . . . ). A real goth feels ‘dark’ or undead at most, preferably vampiric. Shadowy if possible, though not hellish or infernal. Or weepy and depressed for the beta-goths. The use of the word ‘Alien’ sets Kelly as one of the non-goths if anything. As for laughter, at least Alpha Goths DO NOT, at least for normal stuff.

The world is rubbish and Goths ‘keep things real’ by ‘sincere darkness’ as a barometer. The day goth subculture dies out as a mainstream meme, is when all world problems are solved. That includes the issue of high density graveyards, lack of 24 hour venues, or worse, high rise style high density columbariums and the lack of quality mausoleums, the small scale and unmazelike quality of tombs, and the lack of necropoli of any respectable size . . .

The movie ‘Alien’ incidentally is more ‘dark industrial’ which is more cyberpunk with a very heavy dose of orwell and high tech, not really gothic, as sci-fi is not ‘Dark Ages’ where everything was low tech but magic was more common though not over-proliferated . . . thanks for reminding anyway Kelly.  That last Space Field pic will be posted tomorrow I think, I really hope someone takes up the threadbare programming offer! Probably some programmer from the 3rd world simply because the USA’s programmers are too expensive to hire due to cost of living there!

Egypt top court to rule on constitution – 10-26-2012 13:01 BJT

The legal row over the writing of Egypt’s new constitution is being referred to the country’s supreme court. The court will begin investigating the case within 45 days.

A delay that many see as a blow to the country’s liberal politicians. The parliament’s Islamist majority now has more time to finalize the draft constitution.

The fate of Egypt’s political charter, the constitution, remained uncertain amid a court ruling to refer the case to the highest court in Egypt.

The court declined to rule on the legality of the constituent assembly drafting Egypt’s Constitution.

The supreme court will begin investigating the case within 45 days allowing the Islamists time to finalize the constitution draft.

Khaled Aly, former presidential candidate, says, “The court will refer to the highest constitutional court to review if the president is authorized to issue a legislation. That legislation was approved by the people’s assembly which was dissolved.

And the law was passed a month after the dissolution. Hence we have a constitutional problem. Is it within the authority of the president to issue this legislation to have the assembly or not?”

Maged Attia, lawyer, says, “I never expected that the court would refer the lawsuit to the constitutional court. They should have either given a verdict of dissolution of the assembly or leave it. With this decision they are holding the stick from the middle.”

The delay in the ruling is a possible blow to liberals.They are against the current assembly, since according to them, it is not representative of the Egyptian society.

Their main concern is the creation of an Islamist instead of a civilian state.Islamists on the other hand argue that this was to be expected given their numerical superiority in Parliament and the election of an Islamist president.

Hamdy El Fakharany, former member of parliament, says, “We are against the Brotherhoods’ constitution. We will not accept that the labors and farmers don’t have rights in the constitution; We will not accept them stealing away the revolution and killing our freedom.”

The assembly has been trying to complete a final draft before the court rules on its dissolution.

The charter must be put to a public vote within one month of the assembly’s approving of the final draft.According to legal experts, once the people vote for the new charter, no court can rule against the decision.

Faced with an uncertain political charter and turbulence that preceded the removal of Mubarak from office, the battle for supremacy between the Liberals and the Islamists promises to be the new front for a protracted wrangle that may as well through the quest for a new constitution into serious doubt.

How about some ‘terrorists’ scuttle this Islamist agenda in what should be one of the greatest civilisations and most striking and well loved Polytheistic faiths ever in the history of mankind. USA asleep on the job? Where are those contractors USA is known for? Freemasons having nice meals and flying around talking rubbish at the UN while the Islamists take over their territories? Israel, the Priesthood of Egypt, had better prime Mossad or call the CIA or something. Get that Pharoanate up and running, put your foot down REAL Masons! Remember though that Egypt will be able to claim authority over the entirity of the West’s Freemasonry and prepare to be secondary to a pure blood (less than blonde haired, non-blue eyed Pharoah . . . ). Make the right choice Westerners and Egyptians. In Islam Egypt can only be periphery, but in Freemansonry under a Pharoanate, the West comes under Egyptian control!

China’s Bo stripped of last title; prosecution next – Once considered a top contender for the Politburo, Bo Xilai was stripped of his legislative membership – October 26, 2012 (CNN)

Beijing (CNN) — Chinese authorities have stripped disgraced former leader Bo Xilai of his legislative membership, his last official title, paving the way for criminal prosecution of a once rising political star whose spectacular fall has thrown the ruling Communist Party into its biggest crisis in decades.

The People’s Congress of Chongqing, a southwestern metropolis governed by Bo until early this year, has removed his national delegate status, the state-run news agency Xinhua reported Friday.

The announcement comes ahead of the 18th Party Congress in Beijing next month that will set out who will occupy the top positions in the party hierarchy, part of a once-in-decade leadership transition.

Bo was expelled from the Communist Party and the government last month, after being stripped of leadership positions in April.

He once was considered a top contender for the Politburo Standing Committee, the team of nine politicians who effectively rule China, but the news report on his expulsion last month, based on a party investigation, painted a portrait of corruption, abuse of power and improper sexual relationships.

Investigators determined that his behavior tarnished the party’s reputation, Xinhua reported, and discovered “clues to his suspected involvement in other crimes.” The party investigators have sent their conclusions to judicial authorities.

The report said Bo made “severe mistakes” related to the killing of a British businessman — a crime for which his wife was imprisoned — and a diplomatic incident involving his former police chief in Chongqing, Xinhua said.

It also cited influence peddling, bribery and womanizing as details found in the course of the party’s investigation.

Bo is a charismatic, albeit controversial, politician who launched a “smashing black, singing red” campaign in the southwestern city of Chongqing that promoted Communist ideology and zealously cracked down on organized crime.

His economic programs, which included millions spent on social welfare, made him a popular leader in Chongqing. But analysts say his populist policies and high-profile personal style were seen as a challenge to the more economically liberal and reform-oriented faction that dominates the current party leadership.

Bo’s fortunes changed when the dramatic scandal involving him and his inner circle began to seep into the public realm. His wife, Gu Kailai, and family aide Zhang Xiaojun were arrested in early April, suspected of poisoning British businessman Neil Heywood.

Heywood died in November in Chongqing, where Bo was the Communist Party chief. His death was originally blamed on excessive alcohol consumption.

Bo was soon stripped of his top posts for “serious breach of discipline.” In August, his wife received a suspended death sentence after a seven-hour trial. Days later, four senior Chongqing police officers were also sentenced to jail for covering up the murder.

Wang Lijun, the former police chief of Chongqing, set off the Bo story on February 6, when he fled to the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu and told American diplomats that Gu was a suspected accomplice in a murder case.

After his request for asylum was turned down, Wang left the consulate and was taken away by Chinese officials. But his accusations rocked the world’s most populous nation.

Wang was sentenced to 15 years in prison last month for defection, coverup, bribe taking and abuse of power.

The party expelled Bo after an investigation of the killing and Wang’s visit to the consulate, a trip made “without permission,” Xinhua said.

The investigators said Bo “bore major responsibility” in the Wang incident and the killing, Xinhua reported.

2 terms in power, then no more repostings to parallel departments. All who have stayed on too long need to be replaced as well. This should not apply to PM or Presidents’ posts, but every single post in the bureaucracy ESPECIALLY the very top posts. So the next time a person is promoted to the top post, they should know that their time is up and retirement will soon follow. Probably those lobbying for top posts should be doing so as an end of career move, or department shakedown kind of move if lobbying for a post. People who know their power is temporary will never dare to murder in this manner. Term limitlessness and nepotism breeds such murderers and abusers or invites murder and abuse.

Philippine politicians get bulletproof cars – 10-25-2012 15:23 BJT

There’s a full six months to go before the Philippines holds a midterm election but already politicians are gearing up for the debate. And amid political instability and unrest in some parts of the country, part of their preparation is bulletproofing their cars. Barnaby Lo explains how next year’s vote is good for the armored car business.

You’ll probably never be able guess what the model or make of this vehicle is or why anyone would have his car stripped down like this. But there are over a dozen SUV’s lined up here all waiting to be retrofitted.

“Our clients come to us for security and peace of mind.”

For over ten years now, Ryan and his men have been in the business of armoring vehicles. From dismantling the different parts of the vehicle to cutting the steel and installing bulletproof materials to upgrading the car’s suspension and then carefully trimming upholstery to make everything fit back together, Ryan says bulletproofing a car is an art.

Ryan Saluta, Sales Manager, Exo Armoring Co. said, “Most of our employees are actually welders and not mechanics because we cut a lot of steel so we have to be very precise.”

Barnaby Lo, Manila said, “Most of their clients here are wealthy businessmen who need protection from criminals. But during an election year, there’s a completely different set of clients who need a different kind of protection, that come here to have their vehicles armored.”

With just over 6 months left before midterm election, there’s increasing demand from politicians especially from the country’s restive regions in the North and South, where violence has become a staple of every election.

Bobby Tuazon, People Empowerment in Governance said, “They come face to face against each other. The private armed groups of competing politicians confront each other. And therefore the climate of violence is always there.”

In 2009, 58 people were killed in broad daylight while on their way to file for a local politician’s candidacy for governor of the Southern province of Maguindanao. The perpetrators were allegedly from a rival political clan. It was the country’s worst incident of election-related violence.

Three years have passed, but no one has been brought to justice. No surprise then, that for some candidates vying for local posts in next year’s election, it’s worth spending as much as $80,000 to have one vehicle armored, if only to ensure their survival.

Intending to be term limitless eh? If term limits are applied, killing a politician would not be worth the trouble, but looks like either Pinoy MPs are intending to be dictators and nepotists or Pinoy citizens are getting more lawless if not unable to impose term limits on MPs to make MPs think they need bullet proof vehicles . . . IEDs and Grenades can get through any overpriced bulletproof car armour. Which of the 99% of Pinoys said the politicians were allowed to get such expensive vehicles? How about this. If politicians only stay for 2 terms, the Pinoy people promise that no killings will be done, so no bulletproof vehicles off the people’s tax monies will be needed for such waste and implied false sense of privilege based around people killing such MPs. 3rd world mindedness no end . . .

A entire tribe of 170 Indians have vowed to commit mass suicide after a court in Brazil ruled they must leave what they believe is sacred land, it was reported today.

The community of 50 men, 50 women and 70 children from the Guarani-kaiowa tribe are camped inside a ranch in Brazil’s southern state of Mato Grosso do Sul.

The Indians claim the land has been the graveyard of their ancestors for centuries, according to Brazil’s Indigenous Missionary Council (CIMI).

But this week, Judge Henrique Bonachela upheld a petition made by the ranch’s owner to have the tribe evicted from the land.

He decreed a fine of £150 for every day the tribe remains on the land, on the banks of Brazil’s Joguico River.

A spokesman for the tribe today said they do not intend to fight the judge’s decision but would rather die on the land than be made to leave.

And in a letter the tribe called on the Brazilian government to respect their wishes to be buried there along with their ancestors.

It read: ‘Because of this historic fact, we would prefer to die and be buried together with our ancestors right here where we are now.

‘We ask, one time for all, for the government to decree our extinction as a tribe, and to send tractors to dig a big hole and there to throw our dead bodies.

‘We have all decided that we will not leave this place, neither alive nor dead.’

A spokesman for CIMI described the development as of ‘exceptional seriousness’.

And Federal Deputy Sarney Filho warned of the ‘extremely worrying’ situation.

In a letter to Brazil’s Justice Minsitry, he wrote: ‘This tribe has had its culture and lands attacked for centuries. They could now go down in history as being the tribe which wiped themselves out by committing collective suicide.

‘We must take the necessary measures to avert the worst.’

Indian tribes in southern Brazil have for years been fighting for the country to recognise their traditional lands, many of which now belong to farmers and rich landowners.

You silly natives. Whats the purpose of killing yourselves? Take this to the UN instead. and file for sovereign statehood microstate style. The Vatican has a mere 2 square km and population of 800 and is already considered sovereign with a UN seat, but the Guarani-kaiowa have 4.6 million which is 5000 times more the right to sovereignty by population size, with 500 square kilometres which is 250 times in land size more right to sovereignty for a total of 1.2 million times more right than Vatican State to be a sovereign state, with a seat at the UN. Instead of suicide which is exactly what the land grabbers want, try the legal and formal method with lobbying as many supporting states as possible out of 192 viable states of the day (66.6% so that a quorum for legal sovereign statehood can occur) to support the tribe’s effort for statehood at the UN.

Tibetan man dies after setting himself on fire at monastery in protest against Chinese rule

Seventh Tibetan dies from self-immolation this month
Nearly 60 Tibetans have set themselves alight in protest against Chinese rule since March 2011

A Tibetan man died after setting himself alight in the latest self-immolation protest against Chinese rule over the Himalayan region yesterday.

The fatal protest occurred at a prominent Tibetan monastery in Gansu province, northwestern China a London-based rights group said.

This is the seventh self-immolation death as a result of pro-Tibet protests against China this month, Free Tibet said.

The protester, who has been identified as 50-year-old man named Dhondup, set fire to himself near the prayer hall at the remote Labrang Monastery on Monday morning.

The monastery is one of the most important outside of Tibet and was the site of numerous protests following deadly ethnic riots in Tibet in 2008.

Free Tibet said Monday’s self-immolation was the first to take place at Labrang Monastery, and that there have been heavy restrictions in place in the area in recent months.

Citing a witness, it said the monastery manager and other monks prevented police from taking Dhondup’s body.

The official Xinhua News Agency quoted a provincial government official as saying a 63-year-old herdsman set himself ablaze at the monastery but did not give the man’s name or say whether he survived.

Self-immolation as a way of protesting against Beijing’s heavy-handed rule in the region has increased in the past 18 months, Free Tibet said.

A reported 56 Tibetans have set themselves alight in ethnic Tibetan areas of China since March 2011.

The Chinese government has confirmed some of the self-immolations.

The Dalai Lama and representatives of the self-declared Tibetan government-in-exile in India say they oppose all violence.

‘Tibetan protests are escalating,’ Free Tibet director Stephanie Brigden said in a statement.

‘Dhondup is the eighth Tibetan in the last month alone who has risked his life to protest Chinese rule; seven of the eight have died.’

She said China’s government could recognize that Tibetan demands for freedom cannot be extinguished by force and that it “must enter into meaningful dialogue with Tibetan representatives, supported by the international community.’

SELF-IMMOLATION PROTESTS AGAINST CHINA

China says Tibet has always been part of its territory, but many Tibetans say the Himalayan region was virtually independent for centuries until Chinese troops invaded in the 1950s.

Beijing blames the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, for fanning anti-government sentiment and routinely purges monasteries and nunneries, where support for the Dalai Lama and Tibetan independence runs high.

Angry and desperate Tibetans have taken to self-immolation in protest, a centuries-long tradition which has become a type of radical political protest.

More than 500 have been reported in Western media since the 1960s.

In March this year a Tibetan man self-immolated in New Delhi, India, to protest a visit by the Chinese president.

In May, one man died and another was seriously injured after they set themselves alight in China’s Qinghai province, shouting pro-independence song and holding Tibetan flags.

The controversial method of protest is much debated among Tibetans themselves. Some Buddhists say suicide is violence, and therefore unacceptable, while others see self-sacrifice for a greater cause as legitimate.

The Native Ameri-Indians as with the South American Tribes, also are in the same state as Tibet. If ‘the West’ wants to see Tibet free from China, then ‘the West’ will need to lead the way by relinquishing control over any Tribes and all at very least, microstate sized territory into sovereign nations. No amount of media reporting will work but pressure via many sovereign states forming in US or Canadian ‘Indian reservations’ become independent governments will be undeniable in effect. Sacrifice the power to empower Tibetans you ‘Westerners’! Self immolations do nothing! Legal UN work as above suggested will work for certain, China will see the USA as breaking up and will feel safe enough to drop control in Tibet (if even under control at all) as well in response.

Drug firms are ‘risking lives by hiding bad trials and side effects of their medicines’  Calls for companies to be made to publish the results of all its trials – by Daniel Martin – PUBLISHED: 00:48 GMT, 24 October 2012 | UPDATED: 06:50 GMT, 24 October 2012

Drug companies are deliberately withholding the results of adverse clinical trials – putting patients at risk, an MP warned yesterday.

Dr Sarah Wollaston, a Tory backbencher, said pharmaceutical companies were burying bad news about the effectiveness and side effects of their medicines.

She is backing a campaign for a change in the law to force drugs firms to publish the details of all trials – good or bad.

Campaign: Calls are being made for a change to the law that would force drug companies to publish the results of all its trials

The family doctor said such a move would save the NHS millions, because at the moment taxpayers fund medicines which may not be as effective as they claim.

Yesterday Dr Wollaston told MPs: ‘Missing data from clinical trials distorts the evidence and prevents patients and their doctors from making informed decisions about treatment.’

Norman Lamb, the care minister, agreed to meet campaigners to see what more could be done to promote transparency.

Earlier, Dr Wollaston told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the previous government had spent £500million stockpiling Tamiflu despite companies ‘holding back’ full clinical study reports about the drug’s effectiveness.

‘You have to ask yourself why is that being held back,’ she said. ‘This is hugely important. And it’s not just about wasting money. This very much matters.’

She called for all historic data to be published, adding it was ‘vitally important’ for patient safety.

‘This really is a current issue,’ she said. ‘It affects patient safety and it’s wasting millions. If we could see a release of all the historic data…I think we would have a completely different evidence base for medicine. I think it’s vitally important for patient safety.’

Her campaign is supported by senior figures at the Royal College of GPs, the British Medical Journal, the Lancet and the Cochrane Library, which holds the largest collection of reports on clinical trials.

Other drugs for which campaigners say full information has not been made available include weight loss drugs orlistat and rimonabant.

Critics of the system estimate that around half of all clinical trials are never published in academic journals – and that trials with positive results are twice as likely to be published.

Yesterday in the Commons, Lib Dem care minister Norman Lamb told Dr Wollaston: ‘The Government support transparency in publishing results of clinical trials, and they recognise that more can, and should, be done.

‘Greater transparency can only serve to further public confidence in the safety of medicines. I am happy for my noble Friend Lord Howe or me to meet her and experts to discuss this important issue further.’

Stephen Whitehead, chief executive of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, denied drugs firms were not being transparent.

‘As the representative body for pharmaceutical companies in the UK, we take the issue that we are not transparent in our undertaking of clinical trials and causing patient harm very seriously,’ he said.

‘There has been much discussion of clinical trial data transparency over recent weeks, but we stand firm in our position that, as one of the most heavily regulated enterprises in the world, we do not seek to mislead or misinform.

‘Regulation of the industry is rigorous. In the UK, if a medicine is to gain a licence, then the complete clinical trial dataset relating to quality, efficacy and safety must be submitted to the regulatory authorities for approval.

‘We realise that there is still work to be done as we continually move toward greater transparency.’

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

Too many pharmacy lobbyists and GLC links make tranparency difficult. A very strict committee with no such links and sterling reputation for non-corruption AND ethical practice (i.e. very unpopular), is needed or the people will continue to suffer side effects and sudden deaths or whatever.

Microwave missile targets electronics, spares people – Published October 25, 2012 – TechNewsDaily

A successful missile test has ushered in a new era of warfare in which the U.S. military can take out electronic targets without destroying a single building.

The experimental missile fired bursts of high-power microwaves at several target buildings to fry the computers and electrical systems inside during a test at the Utah Test and Training Range on Oct. 16. Such results signaled success for the Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP) created by Boeing Phantom Works and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.

“In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy’s electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive,” said Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works.

The idea of using microwaves or electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) to knock out electronic systems without having to reduce cities or military bases to rubble first arose during Cold War nuclear tests. Nuclear explosions created EMPs that unexpectedly damaged some civilian power grids and facilities.

That spawned the military dream of a nonlethal takedown weapon that could disable an enemy’s radar, communications and targeting computers — effectively leaving them blind and unable to respond effectively to follow-up attacks by regular military forces. Such weapons could prove especially useful when assaulting enemies hidden in heavily populated cities or towns without causing civilian casualties.

But the secrecy surrounding U.S. military weapons research led some critics to argue that microwave weapons represented an impossible dream as recently as last month.

Such critics were apparently wrong. The CHAMP missile’s microwaves proved so effective during the recent test that they knocked out some of the cameras used to record video footage of rows of computers blinking off. CHAMP went on to hit seven targets during the one-hour test.

CHAMP’s three-year, $38 million program could eventually deploy up to five prototype missiles. The latest testing seems to suggest that Boeing and the Air Force have succeeded in creating a functional missile capable of taking out many targets with multiple shots.

This technology is rendered ineffective with lead shielding aka ‘hardened’ devices. If MUON particle based waves are used then yes. But most counteries in the 1st world could well afford to install lead shielding over everysingle device or electronic item and that could render the new missile system ineffective in as soon as a few weeks for the military 2-10  years. I can just imgine Iran rushing to plate all their hardware or radar now.

Fiona Phillips slams her former school for turning her into a ‘vile shoplifting teenager’ – by Daily Mail Reporter – PUBLISHED: 11:35 GMT, 25 October 2012 | UPDATED: 13:37 GMT, 25 October 2012

TV presenter Fiona Phillips has launched scathing attack on the education she received at her old school saying it transformed her from a promising pupil into a ‘vile teenager’.

The 51-year-old claimed teachers at Millbrook School in Southampton, Hants, in the 70s crushed her aspirations and left her with just one O-level.

She said: ‘I went in and said I wanted to be a doctor and they said “have you thought about hairdressing?”‘

Rant: Fiona Phillips slammed the education she received at Millbrook School in Southampton when she was invited to be a guest speaker at a ceremony celebrating their rebranding as an Academy

The former GMTV presenter’s rant came at what was supposed to be a celebratory ceremony for the rebranding of her former school as a new Academy.

She had been invited to attend as a guest speaker but left former pupils, governors and teachers outraged by her unflattering comments.

She said her education had been an ‘eye-opener’ and turned her into a ‘vile teenager’ who was arrested for shoplifting.

And she regaled those attending with tales of how she and her peers locked a teacher in a cupboard and threw another over a bush.

Blame: The TV presenter said the school turned her into a ‘vile’ shopping-lifting teenager

Her speech at the new 16 million pounds Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill School even saw her brand former head, Fred Lowry, a man who ‘commanded no respect whatsoever’.

Ms Phillips said: ‘It was a school rampant with hormones and no discipline, no aspiration and no encouragement. I went in and said I wanted to be a doctor and they said “have you thought about hairdressing?”

‘I can remember being in classes throwing furniture around. We locked a fashion teacher in a cupboard and threw one over a bush, and that was normal behaviour.

‘My mother was in despair because I was so vile to her. They used to come and pick me up from the police station after I had been caught for shop lifting. I was in fights after school, I won’t even go into what else went on.

‘My mother couldn’t believe that this constant pupil had turned into this vile teenager.

‘I left with one O-level in English language, purely because I read a lot and all my education came from home.’

Ms Phillips said she had left primary school at the ‘top of her class’ and her arrival at Millbrook School had been an ‘eye-opener’.

She went on to say the teaching staff did ‘nothing’ to shore up educational standards.

She added: ‘I’m proud to say I went to Millbrook School. I’m not proud of the education I had there.’

And if that wasn’t enough, she then raged about the area of Millbrook, saying she was ‘angry’ there had been ‘hardly any investment in nearly half a century.’

The speech has drawn angry criticism from former pupils and governors who have come forward to defend their school.
Attack: Fiona branded her former head, Fred Lowry, pictured, a man who ‘commanded no respect whatsoever’

One, who was a pupil at the same time as Ms Phillips, said: ‘There was nothing wrong with the school nor the pupils who worked hard at their education. Perhaps if Ms Phillips had not spent so much time throwing furniture and teachers around she may have got more out of her time there.

‘I left school with seven O-levels. I went to college and worked for my A-levels and went to university and worked for my degree.

‘I know from personal experience that many of my fellow Millbrook pupils did the same – more than the national average for the time.’

Mayor Derek Burke, a former governor of Millbrook School, accused Ms Phillips of ‘dramatic licence’ saying it ‘wasn’t nearly as bad as she painted’.

He added current head teachers in the city he had spoken to had told him they were ‘very uncomfortable’ with her remarks.

Speaking about former head Fred Lowry, Cllr Burke said: ‘I knew Fred. He was a good head teacher of the school. I believe he had respect.’

He added his own daughters had attended the school and had achieved lots of GCSEs, along with their friends.

Councillor Don Thomas, a pupil at Millbrook School’s predecessor in the 1960s, also came to the school’s defence.

He said: ‘It’s not appropriate for her to be criticising a former local authority school which did a good job in difficult circumstances.’

He said he had been contacted by one resident who was very angry at Ms Phillips’ outburst.

He added: ‘They were upset at Millbrook being badmouthed. They said it was a good school and proud to go to it.’

In the 1970s and ‘80s Millbrook was one of the largest schools in Southampton with more than 1,200 pupils. Fred Lowry was the head teacher between 1972 and 1988 after moving from St George’s C of E School.

The 85-year-old, who is now retired and living in Ashurst, Hants, declined to comment on Ms Phillips’ accusations.

Ms Phillips was unavailable for comment today.

‘I found myself dealing with 12-year-olds who had talked about things I didn’t even know the name of. Girls in the fifth year were pregnant, boys were in borstal, and the school seemed to be a hotbed of carnal curiosity and knowledge,’ she wrote.

‘I was in the top set for everything, but that didn’t mean much in a school that struggled so much with discipline and lack of ambition. We were supposedly the elite of the school, yet our maths classes consisted of being given an exercise book and told which pages to work on, before the teacher left and returned at the end of the lesson to go through the answers, when she hadn’t explained how to tackle the questions in the first place.

‘There wasn’t much point in trying to learn when most of the pupils were set against it and their parents didn’t care.’

Selected commentator comments :

In some ways I can believe what she said. I went to Belfairs Girls High School in the 70’s and our careers teacher (who was also our RE teacher) had more or less made her mind up what we would be fit for when we left school even before we went for the interview. I said I wanted to be a nurse or work with people and she said the only job I would get would be a lavatory attendant (seriously). She was like this with loads of us and didn’t endear her to the pupils. Although I couldn’t stand the woman (no longer with us) I suppose she was in fact correct, I worked with the elderly for many years which entailed personal care and cleaning up after them and then bought a guest house where I spent years cleaning all the toilets the guests had used every day. Now fortunately I’m retired and only have to clean my own. Some teachers really should not be teachers and Fiona is only saying it how she saw it.

Why is anyone surprised that a victim of the catastrophic errors and the culture of mediocrity in state education condemns their experience of it? We need re-introduce discipline, focus on the basics of grammar, spelling and maths, welcome competition and celebrate success.

Big deal. Try the Ghettos scools in the 3rd world or even ghetto schools in the first world (i.e. Singapore) for a REAL eye opener. Fiona at least had the fun of being ‘disruptively cool’ and protected by the over reaching human rights awareness for children in the first world, not that Human Rights in the first world are exactly tolerable by the civiliseds’ standards in any case.

Romney for President: Mormon or Moron? – by Haider Ali ⋅ January 19, 2012 ⋅ Post a comment

What’s striking about Mitt Romney is the amount of questions he dodges during the Republican debates. This analysis was given credence by the FOX News debate poll, which had the crowd favourite Ron Paul coming out on top. Clearly the frontrunner for the Republicans, (why I don’t know), he has managed to emerge victorious from his opening two primaries in Iowa and New Hampshire. Romney gave a reasonable showing in Iowa and considering he has a summer house in New Hampshire, he had considerable sway there.

But his message is consistently inconsistent and this will always be a vulnerability of his. As governor of Boston he was pro-abortion and in fact a supporter of an Obama-styled healthcare package for his state. Both versions of policy he is now deriding in a desperate attempt to illustrate some form of difference, contrasting him from Obama, though in reality they couldn’t be more similar and pathetic as a politician could get.

Besides his ridiculous hair-style and clearly sprayed on tan, let’s dig a little deeper into what his policies are. He plans to repeal “Obama-care,” which didn’t go far enough for progressives. The former governor wants to make Israel the first place he visits, perhaps to shore up relations, despite Israeli influence over Congress never being more profound in recent history. Then there’s the war-mongering rhetoric, which he has spewed with his fellow Republican natives against Iran, with the exception of Ron Paul. So as a candidate compared to Obama and the rest of the Republicans, he’s no better nor is he distinguishable.

Then there’s great intrigue surrounding his financial background, which he is using as a source of experience to help get the American people into work and believe he can get the economy moving. Romney talks about how he has decades of understanding in the private sector and how this has amalgamated him into the perfect candidate to lead the United States out of recession. One must also look into his background in economics before determining whether or not he is indeed the man he says he is. As head of Bain capital, a private equity firm, Romney espouses how he helped invest in new and vibrant businesses and how some went bust, without going into too much detail.

The reality is he’s nothing but a capitalist whore who has ripped the guts out of some businesses after purchasing them on the cheap and after he’s sold off the vital assets of a company; This eventually leading to the company itself being sold and hundreds of employees being laid off, despite the workers being informed of the contrary. Romney comes across as a certain Gordon Gekko out of Wall Street, only this time playing the role of capital venture mogul turned political stooge. To make things worse he has made off with a significant profit with his capitalist cronies to the detriment of the average Joe. Not only has he committed acts that are morally reprehensible but he’s had the gall to laud them as successes.

Ironic that the moron – I mean Mormon – spews such hogwash when analysing the great benefactors behind his bid for Presidency. From recent studies it was revealed that Romney was the second greatest recipient of funding from Wall Street after Barack Obama. It was the financial terrorists on Wall Street which are comprised of a conglomerate of banking giants and corporate investors which coerced the country along with the world into dire straits in the first place!

He talks about a fair deal for all Americans but even his own taxes are a source of contention making it even harder for him to relate to many voters. The former Boston governor’s personal fortune is close to two hundred and fifty million dollars. Not to the surprise of the informed he only pays fifteen per cent tax. Which informs the masses of two things; firstly he has clearly exploited tax loopholes and secondly he is no different from any other candidate in the running for the presidential candidacy.

If Romney wins the Republican nomination as is predicted by many, the Presidential election in November will be a foregone conclusion. Obama will walk to victory because he is a better campaigner and debater than his counterpart. Romney can be targeted on many things from his flip-flopping over policies to his economic background, which is sure to stoke up the class divide. The only nominee of both parties who can represent a stark contrast and hope for change is Ron Paul, whether or not he gets the chance will remain to be seen.

Unless Obama does something ‘drastic’ to the worst of Islamic Theocracy nations and elsewhere where there are no Human Rights or where Human Rights are routinely abused, the Islamist Fundamentalists deserve Romney aka Bush III. Even if USA’s last bash would be to take out the worst of humanity, I’m sure Russia and other military powers would at least not invade the USA afterwards. Go for broke Americans!

‘It was on my to-do- list’ Ed Miliband’s policy guru banned from driving for having no insurance or MoT – by Matt Chorley, Mailonline Political Editor – PUBLISHED: 16:12 GMT, 26 October 2012 | UPDATED: 16:54 GMT, 26 October 2012

Labour MP Jon Cruddas was given an eight-month ban at Westminster Magistrates
He put paying for MoT and insurance on a to-do list – but forgot
As policy co-ordinator he is in charge of keeping track of Labour’s ideas to win the election

Labour MP and policy co-ordinator John Cruddas told Westminster Magistrate’s Court he put paying for his insurance and MoT on a to-do list, and forgot to do it

The man in charge of Labour’s election manifesto was banned from driving for eight months today – because he forgot to get insurance and an MoT.

Jon Cruddas told magistrates he had made a note on a ‘to-do’ list to get the vehicle covered but it slipped his mind and he drove without cover for 10 days.

The conviction is especially embarrassing because as Labour’s policy chief he is supposed to be keeping track of all the ideas being used to fill in Ed Miliband’s infamous ‘black sheet of paper’ to win the 2015 general election.

Cruddas, 50, is married to Baroness Healy of Primrose Hill, an aide to Labour’s deputy leader Harriet Harman.

The MP for Dagenham and Rainham was pulled over by police near Hyde Park on July 6 after they spotted what appeared to be a defective brake light.

When he was pulled over in his grey Land Rover Freelander, he said: ‘Sorry I don’t have insurance.’

Today in the dock at Westminster Magistrate’s Court he pleaded guiting to driving without insurance and an MoT.

He had received a letter from Land Rover warning him his insurance had run out, but he had not got round to renewing it.

The court heard Cruddas, who once stood to be Labour’s deputy leader, already had six points on his license for speeding, so a further six points would have meant a compulsory driving ban.

Defending, Mark McDonald said Cruddas had a ‘to-do list’ which including paying for everything, but he forgot.

‘He thought he had an extra week and as a circumstance, he was driving with no insurance. It was in a file on a to-do list. He forgot.’

Sentencing the MP, District Judge John Zani said: ‘It is a straight-forward situation – you didn’t check the letter and you didn’t get round to do your to-do list.

‘I take into account you are a good character and haven’t wasted time. I also take into account the effect on other people. Punishment will be suffered by you and other people because of where you work.’

Does Jon John Cruddas know that if enough MPs waive the need for insurance as below link discussed, that there will be nothing to be guilty of?

Betrayal of a war hero: Why did the Army pursue Para through the courts for two years at a cost of £300,000… just for stopping a Taliban suspect fleeing? – by Ian Drury – PUBLISHED: 22:57 GMT, 25 April 2012 | UPDATED: 22:57 GMT, 25 April 2012

Paratrooper: Corporal C (not pictured) was pursued by the Army for punching a Taliban suspect in the face

A paratrooper who was dragged through the military courts for hitting a Taliban suspect – in a case that cost more than £300,000 – was finally cleared yesterday.

A judge threw out the Army’s case after describing the evidence against the soldier as ‘weak and tenuous’.

The alleged victim couldn’t even be bothered to turn up.

The 31-year-old defendant, known only as Corporal C, punched the prisoner once in the face as he interrogated him in Helmand Province.

The Special Forces soldier had been desperate to discover the possible location of improvised explosive devices.

Cpl C, who served for nine years before quitting in disgust at his treatment, admitted hitting the captive, whom he insists was trying to escape.

But the military refused to drop the case – even though the captive, Ahmed Wali, did not want to make a formal complaint, and there were no witnesses to the incident.

The case is estimated to have cost the taxpayer more than £300,000 and it plunged the military into a political correctness row.

The Service Prosecuting Authority even paid tens of thousands of pounds to retain Sarah Whitehouse, one of the country’s most eminent barristers, to fight its case.

Last night Tory MP and former infantry officer Patrick Mercer said: ‘I always thought that Cpl C had acted with remarkable courage, restraint and professionalism in the circumstances.

‘He was operating deep in enemy territory with a real threat of losing life and limb. Now it seems that a judge has finally agreed.
‘This has been a scandalous waste of public money and it is dreadful that a good soldier has had to live with the threat of this hanging over him for so long’
Patrick Mercer, Tory MP and former infantry officer

‘This has been a scandalous waste of public money and it is dreadful that a good soldier has had to live with the threat of this hanging over him for so long. It seems political correctness has been put ahead of the welfare of our troops.’

Cpl C, who is originally from Glasgow, had spent nearly two-and-a-half years with the charge hanging over him.

But Judge Advocate Alistair McGrigor, sitting at the Portsmouth Naval Base court martial centre, yesterday slung out the case halfway through the hearing.

(The judge) said: ‘My ruling is that the prosecution case is so tenuous and so weak that I will stop the trial at this stage.’

Last year three judges, asked to review the evidence at the Court Martial Appeal Court in London, branded the case ‘unfortunate’ saying it was a ‘large hammer (to deal) with a relatively minor matter’.

Cpl C, who had risked his life serving with distinction in Iraq and Afghanistan with the 1st Battalion the Parachute Regiment, was a qualified tactical questioner when the incident happened on March 1, 2010.

The shameful saga

He was section commander of a joint British and Afghan patrol which set up a vehicle checkpoint in Babaji, a Taliban stronghold strewn with IEDs.

The patrol, which had been on duty for eight hours, was aware that insurgents were planning a vicious attack and had faced a near constant barrage of small arms fire.

The court martial was told that at about 10am, the patrol stopped a motorbike carrying two men who were ‘acting suspiciously’.

British troops believed they were acting as ‘dickers’ – spotters – for Taliban fighters. As a member of the Afghan Territorial Force waded across a canal to approach the men, the rider pulled out a pistol and pointed it at him.

The insurgent was shot and Wali, the pillion passenger, was taken into a nearby compound for questioning. The prisoner was held in plastic handcuffs and made to squat – standard Army practice – during the interview.

Wali, who was carrying a list containing the names of senior Taliban, was left alone with Cpl C for about a minute while an interpreter and another serviceman were called away.  When they returned, they found Wali had ‘a swollen lip and blood on his face’.

When questioned by the Royal Military Police, Cpl C said he punched Wali as insurgents were firing at the compound and laying down IEDs. Explaining that the pair were squatting about one foot from each other, Cpl C said Wali had suddenly raised his arms.

He responded by striking out with his left fist. He said: ‘I thought he was going to hit me or run away, or worse-case scenario he could have taken my weapon off me. At that time I thought it was the correct decision.’

Cpl C, who has seen close comrades killed and injured in battle, added that he was carrying his full kit and could have easily been pushed over by the detainee. Mark Aldred, defending, said the soldier’s action was ‘a proportionate response to a perceived risk’.

He added: ‘This is of course Afghanistan. In the context of what goes on there, the fact that a detainee made a brief attempt to escape and was being faced with minor force would barely register on the Richter scale.’

Miss Whitehouse, prosecuting, said the Army doubted Cpl C’s claim that he acted in self-defence because he did not mention the Afghan’s escape bid until he was formally interviewed by the Royal Military Police three months later.

It also emerged during legal arguments that Wali did not want to make a complaint against Cpl C. After he was released, efforts to track him down in Helmand failed.

Critics believe the Army was trying to repair its reputation in the wake of the scandal over Baha Mousa, the hotel receptionist who was beaten to death by British troops in Iraq in 2003.

Suspicious: Face-covered militants who they say are Taliban fighters, pose with RPGs and AK47s, in Zabul province, south of Kabul, Afghanistan

Last night, Colonel Richard Kemp, who commanded British forces in Afghanistan, said: ‘I think the person who pressed for this to be brought before court martial really does need to have their very, very poor judgment questioned.

‘The judge has very quickly come to the conclusion there is no case at all to answer. It is quite right that if there are allegations of ill-treatment to prisoners they must be investigated. That is absolutely correct. But if it cannot be proved that there is evidence of wrong-doing then it is disgraceful that it goes to a court martial.

‘The soldier must have spent the last two years under terrible pressure when what he was doing was fighting for his country and putting his life on the line.

‘It appears that no one has had the common sense to look at the context, which was that he was on a battlefield in very real danger.’

Major Charles Heyman, who edits the British Army handbook, added: ‘It’s good that this case has been thrown out. It is shocking that a soldier who was doing his duty has been hauled before the courts on such flimsy evidence. Sadly this is all too familiar because there are over-zealous prosecutors who are unwilling to think anything other than the worst of our soldiers.’

Perhaps our forces personnel should be supplied with special uniforms which keep one arm permanently tied up because that often seems to be the result of the regulations under which they have to operate.. Our forces were sent to Afghanistan in 2001 in what was supposed to be a peace-keeping role but it’s been out and out war which the Taliban and Al Quaeda recognise even if of our top brass don’t.

This is not new! Back in the 1970s, open fire in NI and the investigating branch and the civil police would be all over you trying to make out you ‘fancied shooting at something’. I witnessed one soldier threaten the military policeman trying to belittle a fellow infantryman had the soldier not calmed down when I told him , I honestly believe the MP would have got one round the back of the head from me too on his way down! Have my doubts that this was reported by a regimental NCO or or officer. Despair at the anti officer nonsense that I read, having started at the bottom and worked up I saw that most regimental officers are superb – and they come from all walks of life, there were very few public schoolboys in my last mess. Since 1914 the British army officer corp – pro rata has taken greater casualties than the rank and file it saddens me that the heavy sacrifice is never given recognition.

Humanity has, since developing past the low density tribal era (at least in tribes where everyone was an important individual in their own right) been in a war of psychic imprinting where FREE CHOICE of one’s favourite person to be imprinted by should be CHOSEN FREELY, instead of being forced upon by a dictator or (forceful, aka psychologically manipulative – psychiatry is viewed as a branch of the ‘secret police’ in the 3rd world, not medical professionals to help genuinely ill persons – or abusive ‘personalities’ (ask about the rapes and murders that have and continue to occur in these parts, compounded by lies and rumours by vicious cronies out to get their opponents or even bad relationships intentionally soured, sometimes to gain access to wealth by a burgeoning class of manhaters who form a backbone of insane that hide behind ‘male abuse’), perhaps a sick minded or older relative.  Manipulative use of billboards, NLPs and placards pasted all over the place with a politician or less so though ‘inadvertant’ fans or converts occur alot more in actor-star imprints. All of the above is a form of this abuse, especially when non-consensual and should also be illegal. Perhaps a chapter in that ‘Spiritual Education Charter’ the UN has yet to print and require all schools to distribute and teach from?

Some imprints dominate entire nations due to cults of personality again spiritual criminals, much like term limitless politicians making b1tches of people who enter their political parties by imprinting upon them a certain faith, mindset or meme-set. Finally, though it is uncivil to copy uniqueness rather than develop one’s own unique look or phenotype without permission, or if the person is unaware of the implications of ‘stardom’ or ‘public personality’ (which ends up wtih hordes of disguusting cheap copies of the imprinter in question. The mass of generally formless faceless types can be thus be respected for ethics and awareness (less likely as people do have some sense of direction though not necessarily personality), if not pitied for inability to create a unique facial form of their own (more common).

As for the way the above case was handled, out of a pathological love for micromanagement, and refusal to allow pro-active behaviour and critical thinking to prevail (despite saying how democratic ‘the West’ is), in another few more decades of this, and the ‘West’ will have dug their own grave and buried the ‘West’ without need of any wars, not to mention that as of now they are already bankrupt and PARASITING off the productive middle class, keeping funds from circulating due to plutocrats’ sequestered wealth, and imposed dependency and hand out culture of the lower classes from bad laws to enrich crony suppliers.

T-shirts investigated for borrowing Wen’s popularity – Updated: 2012-04-26 14:34 (Xinhua)

BEIJING – A Chinese online fashion retailer is being probed for cashing in on Premier Wen Jiabao’s popularity to promote its latest T-shirts — an act that might have violated the country’s law on advertisement, Beijing commerce authorities said.

Vancl, popular for its pop culture apparel, stirred up controversy on Tuesday by advertising on its website a new series of T-shirts printed with Premier Wen’s signature quotations like “Forget About Me” and “Self-Reflection.”

Both quotes were picked from Wen’s emotional press finale this March when he addressed a press conference after the conclusion of the annual parliamentary session.

The 70-year-old premier’s term of office is slated to end in March next year. Since he took the post in 2003, Wen has become popular among the people and is sometimes fondly nicknamed “Grandpa Wen.”

The series of T-shirts is named “Look Up At The Starry Sky,” the title of a poem written by Wen and published in the People’s Daily in 2007.

One of the Vancl T-shirts actually features “Look Up At The Starry Sky” and “Step On The Concrete Ground” in Chinese calligraphy, in reference to a couplet Wen gave to students of Peking University in 2010.

The couplet was a metaphor for telling young students to hold high ambitions but take a step-by-step approach to achieve their dreams.

Pictures of Wen waving to journalists and taking questions, though not printed on the T-shirts, were splashed on the advertisement web page at http://www.vancl.com.

But the page was taken down by the company only hours after its appearance as many Internet users accused it of cashing in on the premier’s popularity to promote its products.

“Vancl’s online advertisement is suspected of violating the Advertisement Law which stipulates an advertisement shall not involve using the names of State organs or their functionaries,” a spokesman of Beijing municipal industry and commerce bureau told Xinhua.

The bureau would soon take actions in accordance with the law, he added.

While it is not unusual to see the faces of Chairman Mao and other late state leaders on souvenirs, it is rare to see images of incumbent leaders or officials being borrowed by pop culture.

Jiao Hongyu, a Vancl spokeswoman, told Xinhua the advertisement was designed out of respect for Wen, hoping the premier’s messages might have a positive influence on today’s young people, who are Vancl’s back-bone customers.

“We did a Lei Feng (a late heroic Communist soldier) series before and it was very well received,” Jiao said. “So when we planned this series, we did not foresee any negative impact it might bring.”

T-shirts of the “Lei Feng” series are sold ranging from 29 yuan ($4.6) to 59 yuan a piece. The “Look Up At The Starry Sky” T-shirts, however, have been pulled off from Vancl’s online purchasing platform.

Inappropriate for public officials. After the public official has retired, MAYBE because that official’s influence can still affect and make non-neutral policies. After the public official has passed on AND if there are no relatives of that official in government as well, t-shirts become and other memorabilia quite appropriate. Profiteering should not be at the expense of the stability of the nation.

Benetton founder steps down for son – April 22, 2012

MILAN, April 22 — Luciano Benetton will hand over the helm of the Italian fashion clothing company he helped found 47 years ago to his son this week, he said in an interview published today.

Benetton and his family turned the company into one of Italy’s best known brands with more than 6,500 stores in 120 countries and a reputation for controversial advertising and bold colours, but it has struggled against new competitors.

“The baton passes to my son Alessandro, who will become chairman,” Benetton, who turns 77 in May, said in an interview published in Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

“After a run of 47 years, on Tuesday I will resign from the duties I hold in the company I founded with my siblings.”

A company spokesman confirmed the remarks made in the interview. Alessandro is currently deputy chairman.

Benetton has suffered from the emergence of more-flexible rivals such as Inditex’s Zara and Sweden‘s H&M . In January the family announced it would delist the company after a buyout of minority shareholders.

An industry source told Reuters in February that Alessandro was set to take charge and that the buy-out would give him room for possible asset disposals or alliances and help revamp the group to accommodate other family members.

In the interview, Benetton said his 48-year-old son had shown in the two years as deputy chairman he had the passion needed to run the group, now more than 90 per cent controlled by the family.

Benetton scrapped its 2011 dividend after sluggish consumer demand in Southern Europe and the rising cost of raw materials such as cotton led to an almost 30 per cent fall in net profit. — Reuters

The corporate ethics issue arises. Not enriching all citizens, but 1 family. Leads to extreme plutocracy and doubtless golden parachute cronyism at the expense of the stockmarket and the stock holders. Nepotism is uncool. Benneton or any other ‘semi-professional’ companies posing as ‘corporate’ outfits based around family ties, are blood diamonds among corporate gems. In the world of political parties where laws that can imprison and fine are involved (i.e. faith vs. faith, narrow ethnic communalism etc..) this sort of behaviour of course is absolutely unacceptable and quite 3rd world-like in nature.

DHS Sued For Records Regarding Obama’s Illegal Alien Uncle – OpEd – written by: Jim Kouri – April 24, 2012

An “Inside the Beltway” public-interest group that investigates government corruption reported on Friday that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit — Judicial Watch v. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:12-cv-00346) — against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for records related to President Barack Obama’s illegal alien uncle, Onyango Obama, who was arrested in August 2011 on drunken driving charges in Framingham, Massachusetts as first reported by the Law Enforcement Examiner.

On March 27, 2012, Onyango Obama admitted to the Framingham District Court that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, meanwhile, indicated that the agency would continue deportation proceedings against Obama, as reported in the Boston Herald.

“Now that [Mr. Obama’s] criminal case has completed, ICE has communicated, in accordance with standard procedure, with his attorney regarding his removal pursuant to a previous final order by an immigration judge,” agency spokesman Brian P. Hale said.

Onyango Obama reportedly was first ordered out of the country in 1992 but refused to leave.

After Onyango Obama was released from federal custody at the Plymouth County House of Correction on September 8, 2011, via an “order of supervision,” JW filed a second FOIA request, seeking access to “all records of communications, contacts and correspondence” between ICE and the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department,” as well as the other organizations listed in the previous FOIA request.

By letter dated September 20, 2011, ICE acknowledged both FOIA requests. A response was due by October 19, 2011. However, after six months, DHS has failed to turn over any records, explain why they should be withheld, or indicate when a response will be forthcoming.

Obama, who, upon his arrest, said his one phone call would be to the White House, has indicated that he will fight ICE’s efforts to deport him in a high profile proceeding that the Boston Herald conjectured could “drag on for years.”

While he fights deportation, Obama will be allowed to drive a car. He was supposed to lose his license for 45 days, but received a “hardship license,” from the Massachusetts’s Department of Motor Vehicles so that he could drive back and forth to his job at a liquor store. (Typically, illegal aliens cannot lawfully work in the United States.)

“Onyango Obama has already escaped deportation once. And given his family relationship to President Obama, the American people must be assured that the law is being impartially followed in this case. The Obama administration’s decision to flout FOIA and stonewall our records request suggests that there is something to hide,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Special thanks to Judicial Watch’s Jill Farrell, director of public affairs, for her continued assistance and valuable information.

One wonders if the whole issue is due to racism. Leave the old ‘black’ guy alone. Consider allowing Onyango Obama to stay in USA on compassionate and family grounds. Stop bullying. Dya think he’s a criminal? Or that there is no space in USA for 1 more illegal alien? Last I remember, Uncle Onyango was supposed to give a ‘Black Power’ speech in Malaysia following the death of a ‘black youth’ by the local paramilitary (junta?) who are also paid off the taxpayer’s funds without assent by any majority quorum of taxpayers to boot, so please stop trying to deport the guy. Onyango will be out of the USA giving seminars (which is more than what you might be doing) soon enough for quite awhile if Pres. Hussein’s (Obama) people know how to save face. You can’t deport someone who willingly left the country to be a respectable figure in educating 3rd world apartheid states about anti-racism . . .

‘Dog Whisperer’ host finalizes divorce, must pay ex-wife $23,000 a month – by Wendy Carpenter | The Upshot

“Dog Whisperer” host Cesar Millan might need some consolation from man’s best friend after his divorce was finalized.

TMZ is reporting that the self-taught expert dog trainer must pay his ex-wife, Ilusión, a one-time amount of $400,000, a monthly spousal payment of $23,000, and another $10,000 for monthly child support.

That may seem like a huge sum for a basic cable reality TV personality, but Millan can afford it.

The recently filed divorce documents, which were obtained by TMZ, show that Millan makes $170,000 a month — which is over $2 million a year.  Though he is best known for hosting the National Geographic Channel’s “Dog Whisperer” for eight seasons — it has millions of viewers and is broadcast to over 80 countries — the 42-year-old has also authored several best-selling books and runs a Dog Psychology Center. The latter, according to the New York Times, is a 43-acre mecca he calls “Disneyland for dogs.”

Cesar Millan and then-wife Ilusión Millan at the Imagen Awards on Aug. 21, 2008 in Beverly …

And then there is Cesar Millan Inc., which accounts for all of Millan’s ventures outside of his TV show. According to the New York Times, that includes “speaking engagements; executive leadership seminars; a line of organic dog food, fortified water, shampoos and toys … and the charitable foundation financed by an undisclosed percentage of the company’s revenue.”

Ilusion, a Mexican-American who married Millan when she was 18 and he was 24, was very involved in her husband’s career. She helped him run Cesar Millan Inc. and designed the Illusion Collar, which helps control difficult dogs.

The couple, who filed for divorce in June 2010, had been married for 16 years and have two boys together.

The New York Times says the pair separated after the birth of their first son but reconciled. It quotes Ilusión as saying “We’re what I call Mr. Talent and Mrs. Brains. You can’t have one without the other.”

To which Cesar said: “My wife rehabilitated me.”

It is unclear what role Ilusión has had in the various business ventures since the divorce filing, though the charitable Cesar and Ilusión Millan Foundation has been since renamed the Millan Foundation.

People reported that Millan “famously came to the U.S. as a young man from his native Mexico with $100 in his pocket and a dream of becoming a famous dog trainer.” Now his client list includes Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith and director Ridley Scott, all of whom needed help with their canines.

Millan, who lives in Los Angeles, became a United States citizen in 2010. He is known for rehabilitating troubled dogs, largely because he “lives in the now and maintains a sort of über-balanced mien,” according to the New York Times.

And he apparently values his privacy. TMZ reports that the divorce documents stipulate that any “intimate, personal and/or private information about the other party … including details of their personal and/or sexual relationships” must remain confidential.  Any “photograph, film, videotape, recording … which is not commercially available” must remain private.

Nonsense. This woman needs a single 401K at most to retire on LIKE ALL OTHER *NORMAL* AMERICANS. Twice that amount would already be excessive. A typical family needs only 1-3K in support to get by. Challenge the ruling moron plutocrat. Having money does not mean one can sequester wealth, nor also be abused by stupid rulings that are inequitable. A nation of strong individuals need to also consider critical thought and challenging the bad law or bad judgment when bad judgments occur, or when encountering bad laws.

Five unusual turn-ons for men – by Bob Strauss

Marcel Proust wrote, “Let us leave the beautiful women to men with no imagination” — and if you’re loath to take dating advice from a French author who wrote a 10,000-page novel about a guy eating a cookie, well, you’ve clearly been brainwashed by decades of movies, TV shows and magazine ads. Me? I empathize more with all those less-than-perfect single women out there. I’m talking about those ladies who may not know that most ordinary guys are attracted to the quirks and so-called “flaws” they’re terrified will doom them to a lifetime of singlehood.

Now that I’ve opened that door, there’s no way to avoid the one supposed “imperfection” that keeps women awake at night above all others — their weight. Allow yourselves to be reassured by Dr. Judy Kuriansky, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Dating, who says that “many men like plus-sized women with soft bellies. This often happens when they had a mother or nanny who had that kind of body and they felt comforted and enveloped by the mother figure — protected from the world or the insults of other children. Also, men like women with large hips for anthropological reasons — it used to mean that the woman was fertile.” And in my own experience, the vast majority of guys (at least, the ones who aren’t on TV shows or in movies) don’t care much about a few — or even 20 or 30 — extra pounds.

So what other surprising things do a significant number of men find attractive about women? Here are five for your delectation:

1. Glasses. Says Jeff, posting on the Yelp.com message boards: “Every guy loves a girl in glasses, but women never seem to know that. It’s not like we’re keeping it a secret — why would we? It’d mean fewer girls in glasses! Some glasses-lover needs to infiltrate Cosmopolitan magazine and get the word out!” For some guys (mostly the lazy ones who grew up watching teen gross-out comedies), glasses connote a nerdy personality and a high IQ, which can have their own intrinsic appeal; others appreciate them as fashion accessories, while still others have a natural affinity for them because spectacle-wearing women remind them of their mothers or early childhood crushes.

2. Freckles. Just as the deodorant-producing industrial complex has created legions of denatured, pheromone-free men (it turns out that plenty of women like guys with an earthy, musky scent), the powers-that-be in the cosmetics industry have convinced women that their natural freckles need to be buried under thick slabs of spackle and bronzer. Tonja Weimer, writer of the syndicated “Savvy Dating” column, says this is all based on a huge misunderstanding: “Freckles represent being unaffected, natural and relaxed. To some men, they also make a woman appear somewhat ‘innocent’ and less jaded.” If you don’t have freckles, try wearing less makeup, which many men also appreciate.

3. An independent streak. In my own experience, the worst thing a woman can do — whether it’s on a first date or after 20 years of marriage — is subsume her naturally ebullient personality in an effort to be more “accommodating” to her partner and avoid making waves. Most guys like a brisk, good-natured argument, and if you nip this possibility in the bud by constantly replying “I agree” or “Yes, you’re right,” the relationship (not to mention the conversation) will go absolutely nowhere. On the other hand, though, playing devil’s advocate in every conversation just makes you seem combative. So if you find yourself disagreeing more than not with your date, maybe it’s time to look for someone that’s a better fit for you, personality-wise.

4. Plain Janes. Standards of beauty in today’s media-saturated world have become so artificially elevated that many otherwise attractive women are convinced they’re “homely” because of a slightly bigger nose or a crooked smile. The good news is that most guys don’t care about this stuff; the bad news is that a small minority of men have self-esteem issues of their own and will take advantage of yours when given the opportunity. Eric Weisholtz, cofounder of GetOnTheCouch.com, says that “a man may see a woman who is kind of attractive, a bit awkward, unrefined and — whether she knows it or not — in dire need of someone to coach her toward virtue. It’s like finding a ‘make your own girlfriend’ kit.” Don’t feel like being part of a science experiment? Find a guy who likes you for who you are, not what he can make you change about yourself.

5. Assorted quirks. Fran Drescher, star of The Nanny, had a piercing, snorting, abrasive laugh — and all it did was send the ratings of her show through the roof and make her a millionaire many times over. That laugh also unmasked a secret crush that most guys didn’t even know they had: the hot girl with an unexpected quirk. Says Lisa Steadman, author of If He’s Not the One, Who Is?: “You know you’ve met someone who’s a keeper when he or she compliments your quirks. Whether it’s the snort in your laugh or the way you twirl your hair when you’re thinking about something — or the fact that you have to double-check that you hit the alarm button on the car when you get home at night — the right person will think your quirks are adorable.” Remember this the next time you’re feeling self-conscious about slurping your straw three times as you finish your iced latte.

An offensive couple! Rapper Wiz Khalifa is cited for marijuana possession while fiancee Amber Rose commits fashion crime – by Mike Larkin – PUBLISHED: 23:53 GMT, 25 April 2012 | UPDATED: 00:52 GMT, 26 April 2012

It seems Wiz Khalifa and his fiancée Amber Roser are well matched.

While the 24-year-old rapper was handed a citation for alleged marijuana possession, the model was busy committing a crime against fashion.

Wiz was collared at a Holiday Inn hotel in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday after investigators were called to his hotel room.

Cited: Wiz Khalifa admitted possessing marijuana in Nashville at the weekend and was served with a court citation

The star, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, was due to headline a show in the city, but his night was ruined when the police showed up at his room.

Front desk staff at the hotel called police after received several complaints about marijuana use in his room.

Police claim that when they arrived they smelled marijuana, and when the door to his room was opened, they saw him throw a marijuana cigar out of the window. Not-so-sheepish: Wiz is open about his use of the drug and is starring alongside Snoop Dogg in an upcoming stoner movie

They also allege that when they asked if there was any more marijuana in the room he denied it,  but they later found more on his companion.

Both suspects later admitted to having the drug and were cited for the misdemeanor possession.

They have until May 14 to show up at the Davidson County courthouse for booking on the charges.

He left Nashville on Sunday and has been in New York this week.

Call the fashion police: Amber Rose was in danger of being taken away in handcuffs due to her awful outfit in New York today

Rearly awful: The model’s outfit looked terrible from every angle

It will come as no surprise to his fans however, as he is open about his use of the drug and is even starring alongside Snoop Dogg in upcoming stoner comedy Mac and Devon Go to High School.

But the rapper was not the only one in his social circle committing a crime recently.

For his fiancée Amber Rose, who he proposed to last month, was in danger of being put in handcuffs by the fashion police in New York today.

Even by the 28-year-old’s outlandish standards her latest outfit was beyond the pale.

However her grey hooded top, baggy shorts, white sports socks, converse shoes and the red handkerchief she wore on her head was still not enough to stop fans asking for photographs.

Wiz should use this opportunity where Snoop Dogg failed, (also with all that wealth Wiz has) to challenge the unconstitutionality of the charges, of the unconstitutionality of the ban on all organic psychedelics which are after all freely given in nature.

No group of people have a right to forbid anyother group (this is the essence of democracy and civilisation, protection of minority rights) from using what is freely available or growing in nature, especially with threats of incarceration or extortion (fines) via ‘words on a piece of paper that have no bearing on reality and freedom laws‘. If the case to challenge bad laws against generally harmless organics fails (doubtful) as so many people do use organics, Wiz should demand that he be allowed to renounce the US citizenship and seek asylum in a country of his choice where organics are legal.

Do it Wiz, fight for democracy, for the right to use what Nature has given us for free! Don’t be a victim or a legal-system wuss Wiz, challenge the system on a Human Rights angle to use what nature has freely given mankind ! USA! USA! Pull a MLK on the system Wiz! Make them regret even daring to target you!

The Right to Sacrifice the Other: The American Genocides – by Munir Akash, Beirut: Riad El-Rayyes Books, June 2002. – REVIEWED BY Abdullah Mohammad Sindi, Ph.D. International Relations:

The American Genocides is a 200-page paperback book in Arabic and the latest scholarly work by Munir Akash who is a well-known Arab-American writer. Educated in his native Arab world, Europe, and the US, Akash authored, edited, and translated many articles and books in Arabic, French, and English on many subjects ranging from politics, to revolution, to poetry and sex. A recipient of several awards and honors both in Europe and the US, Akash also edited several scholarly periodicals in Paris, London, and the US including Jusoor, founded and published by him with the cooperation of Syracuse University’s publications in New York.

Written in a lucid style with a great deal of passion and courage which captivate the reader, The American Genocides contains a table of contents; an introductory chapter; seven main chapters documented by footnotes and sources; two appendixes on Native Americans; and two indexes, one on proper names and the other on places. The book also contains a small section about the author and his accomplishments.

Utilizing his expertise in Native American affairs, Akash wrote a profoundly shocking book. He did an excellent job in documenting the European genocides and other crimes against Native Americans from the time of the so-called “discovery” of so-called the New World in the late 15th century to the present. In this largest and longest holocaust in the history of the world, Akash estimated that 112 million Native Americans perished over the last 510 years both in North and South Americas. The invading Europeans destroyed over 400 North American Native Nations, such as the Iroquois, the Apache, the Navajo, the Cheyenne, the Cherokee, the Spokane, the Mohawk, and the Sioux.

Although some of these Native American victims (or so-called “Indians”) such as the Mayas, the Incas, and the Aztecs had great civilizations centuries before Europe, often superior to those of Europe at the time, the Europeans still claimed that their “divine” mission was to bring “civilization” to the New World and they brazenly referred to these natives as “savages” and “barbarians”. Also, despite the fact that the Native Americans initially welcomed the invading Europeans, were generous with them, and taught them how to survive in a new land, and how to plant food in an alien environment to them, the Europeans still have looked down, from the start, on these indigenous people and have called them such racist names as “brutes”, “vermin”, “wild varmints”, “devils”, “devil worshipers”, and “animals”. Not only uneducated Americans but also their political, religious, and social leaders have uttered these ugly and vulgar adjectives throughout US history.

Of the 112 million murdered Native Americans in the New World, Akash estimated that 18.5 million have been wiped out in what is known today as the United States.

He detailed how these horrific genocides and other crimes in the US have been committed by the “super race” WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) at all governmental levels throughout US history as well as by common settlers who brutally settle-colonized North America. From the very beginning of their colonization in Plymouth, Massachusetts, the WASPs have acted like real wasps with potent venom. They have savagely stung Native Americans by various methods of genocides from outright slaughter; to intentional infection by deadly diseases such as small pox, cholera, and plague; to forced brutal deportations known as “Indian Removal”; to confinements in horrible conditions in concentration camps and reservations; to intentional sterilization of Native American women without their own knowledge.

Ironically, some American Christian churches, which supposedly believed in “Thou shall not kill” and “Thou shall not steal”, openly condoned and supported at all levels these barbaric acts and slaughters of Native Americans as well as the thefts of their lands, resources, and properties.

Naturally, as Akash indicated, the US government and its agencies have carefully covered up these long series of genocides and ethnic cleansings against Native Americans. In fact, today’s standard American history textbooks and official documents throughout the US totally ignore these massacres and horrible crimes committed against Native Americans. According to the official American point of view, North America was “empty” of native people when the WASPs started to colonize it in the early 17th century, or at best “sparsely” inhabited by “primitive” or “uncivilized” tribes.

Nevertheless, being an Arab writer writing in Arabic for Arab readers, Akash then proceeded to make a brilliant analogical comparison between the WASP’s brutal racist colonization of North America and the ancient Hebrew’s gruesome colonization of Canaan (old Palestine), as well as the current savage colonization of Arab Palestine since 1948 by the Western Zionist Jews. In order to replace the native people and steal their lands and properties, both the WASPs and the Hebrews/Zionists had to commit genocides and brutal racism against the rightful owners of the lands. Both of these two racist colonizers have justified their massacres and thefts as “doing God’s work on earth”.

In fact, as God’s warriors and devout faithfuls, the WASPs and the ancient Hebrews as well as the modern Zionists have used the Old Testament for their own purposes to justify their extermination of the native peoples and the theft of their lands and resources. For example, in Joshua 6:21 we read: “And they utterly destroyed all that [was] in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.” And in Joshua 24:13 we read: “And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and olive yards which ye planted not do ye eat.”

Next, Akash articulated his analogy further by drawing a perfect parallel between the WASPs and the Hebrews/Zionists. As the ancient Hebrews fled the brutality of the Pharaoh in Egypt, so did the WASPs from their king in England. As the ancient Hebrews crossed the Red Sea in a dangerous sea voyage, so did the WASPs across the dangerous Atlantic Ocean. As the ancient Hebrews got lost in their voyage to the “promised land”, so did the WASPs on their “Mayflower” across the Atlantic. As the ancient Hebrews considered themselves to be “the chosen people of God”, so did the WASP “pilgrims”. As the ancient Hebrews made a “covenant” with “God” during their wandering, so did the WASPs. And as the ancient Hebrews finally arrived in the “promised land” of Canaan, so did the WASPs in the “promised” New English Canaan.

Both the Hebrews and the WASPs wanted to establish “a city upon a hill”, a biblical notion of supposedly “a utopian society”. In fact, the WASP “pilgrims” referred to their settled-colonies in North America by such names as “Israel”, “God’s new Israel”, “Zion”, and “the promised land”.

Akash then eloquently argued that the “biblical Jewish/Zionist” philosophy, espoused by the American founding WASP fathers, has naturally evolved into the following 5 basic doctrines, which have guided American policies from the earliest blood baths in Plymouth to the current butchery in Afghanistan:

1. The Israeli meaning of the US (the Hebrew mythology that created the nation).

2. The Divine Election doctrine, “Chosen People” imagery, and the superiority of the WASP race and culture.

3. The right to lead and “save” the world (errand in the wilderness).

4. The predestined expansion (the divine right and ability to expand US domains endlessly).

5. The right to sacrifice the other.

Accordingly, as a direct result of these 5 ingrained doctrines in the American political and social psyches, the author correctly concluded that the intentional annihilation of Native Americans by the “super race” WASPs was not a unique or abnormal occurrence in American history. Rather, “the right to sacrifice the other” has always been a constant and systematic American norm from the dawn of the American nation to the present. In fact, many others groups and races throughout the world, both in past and current US history, have also been brutally killed en masse for a variety of reasons. Among these victims are millions of innocent Black Americans who died during the long history of the American brutal slavery system and the Jim Crow laws that followed it; hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese who were horrifically incinerated by Atomic bombs in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the final days of W.W.II at a time when Japan was already too weak to continue the war and was actually willing to surrender; and millions of innocent Latin Americans, Filipinos, Koreans, Vietnamese, Arabs, Asians, Africans, and other groups throughout the world who have lost their lives as a direct or indirect result of America’s military interventionism World-Wide to promote US national (i.e., corporate) “interest”.

It should be indicated here that Akash is one of few scholars in the US who had the courage to expose in details the hidden history of these crimes against humanity. In researching his excellent book, Akash meticulously consulted many valuable sources, both primary and secondary, including documents, books, periodicals, and websites.

He quoted such important scholars and specialists on Native American studies as Professor David E. Stannard who authored: The Conquest of the New World: American Holocaust; and Ward Churchill, a Native American Professor and author of: Indians Are Us? Culture and Genocide in Native North America.

I do not have many negative remarks on Akash’s book. However, in few cases throughout his book one found some Western proper names written only in Arabic as they were mentioned for the first time but without the easier identification of their names by Latin letters next to the Arabic ones. In addition, although the title of the book (The Right to Sacrifice the Other: The American Genocides) gave the impression that each chapter might be devoted to specific racial victims of American genocides, the authored concentrated in the 7 chapters of his book on Native Americans. The author made only passing remarks about the American holocaust against Black American slaves, Filipinos, Hiroshima and Nagasaki’s civilians, Vietnamese, Latin Americans, Iraqis, Afghanis, and other victims throughout the world many of which were subjected to biological warfare. For example, in page 151 of his book, The American Holocaust, David Stannard stated that during the American slave trade “… at least 30,000,000 – and possibly as many as 40,000,000 to 60,000,000 – Africans were killed … before they even had a chance to begin working as human chattel on plantations in the Indies and the Americas”.

The American Genocides by Akash is an excellent book for all readers especially those interested in US history and in the plight of the New World’s indigenous peoples.

I recommend Akash’s book without any reservation whatsoever to all Arab readers, young and old. In fact, all Arab readers will be highly intrigued by Akash’s eloquent analogy between the WASP “pilgrims” in their brutal invasion of North America and the savage Hebrew/Zionist invasion of Palestine. The similarities between the brutal actions of the WASPs towards Native Americans and the actions of the Hebrews/Zionists towards the natives of Palestine (both ancient Canaanites and modern Palestinians) could also easily explain to all Arabs – especially those who still pin their hopes on the US to be fair – the current American unconditional support for Israel’s brutal policies in Arab Palestine. Also, those few Arabs who are still puzzled by the American total blind support of the Zionist entity should read this book.

In brief, Akash’s book is powerful and captivating. It is a good and informative reading, well researched and well written.

We will support Yauch’s work by asking the government of the United States to relinquish all political and military power to the Native Americans (drop all Governorships hand over top military posts, etc..) in exchange for China granting sovereignty to Tibet.

After all there were no WASPs in USA and government should be held by the Native Americans – AFTER reparations for Holocaust style Native American Genocides (for being Pagans and having an organic culture not typified by Capitalism) by the Protestant Xians, German style apologies for Nazism and repatriations of ALL ethnically Caucasian persons who had derived wealth from enslavement of NAs, or sequestered NA lands (especially native ancestral burial grounds and sacred grounds) have been returned to the remnants of the tribe in question.

China will have no excuse to continue holding Tibet IF the Native American peoples are given their sovereignty starting with the Republic of Dakota, and then the Republic of Aztlan (which could either rejoin Mexico or become a sovereign state), and finally the Republic of New Africa (in conjunction with the NA tribes in the original area if assenting).

Do the Caucasians in USA love Tibet enough to take the moral high ground and even recommend their fellow Caucasians who had held NA slaves or butchered NA’s in the early Protestant migrations for their own living space be repatriated, as well as relinquish all military and political power to the Native Americans to make a point that China cannot ignore? Otherwise consider Yauch’s work a failure and Tibet’s secession an impossibility.

There is no moral high ground otherwise for USA or any ‘American’ to pursue Chinese issues when glaring occupations of entire peoples to the point of near extinction lacking political and military control. More currently enacted violent occupations, occupations of subversion are listed below :

1) Native Americans in USA (Oppressing nation is England via Freemason-Illuminati cultists and WASP groups)
2) Aboriginese in Australia (Oppressing nation is England via Caucasian convict colonies)
3) Various First Nations Natives in Canada (Oppressing nation is England and less so France)
4) Maori people in New Zealand (Oppressing nation is England)
5) Inuit people in Greenland (Oppressing nation is Denmark)

;without UN Ambassadorial representation at the New York based (but soon to be based on an aircraft carrier) UN? If all of the above occupiers, which are considered 1st World Nations, relinquish control over their colonies, then only will China (a second world country for all purposes) willingly relinquish control of Tibet, though Tibet looks set to become a Buddhist Theocracy if care is not taken to ensure freedom of the populace which China presumably protects the population from.

UN: drug gangs controlling parts of British cities Parts of British cities are becoming no-go areas where drugs gangs are effectively in control, a United Nations drugs chief said today. – 10:00AM GMT 28 Feb 2012

Professor Hamid Ghodse, president of the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), said there was ”a vicious cycle of social exclusion and drugs problems and fractured communities” in cities such as Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester.

The development of ”no-go areas” was being fuelled by threats such as social inequality, migration and celebrities normalising drug abuse, he warned.

How should Britain’s drug problem be tackled?

Helping marginalised communities with drugs problems ”must be a priority”, he said.

”We are looking at social cohesion, the social disintegration and illegal drugs.

”In many societies around the world, whether developed or developing, there are communities within the societies which develop which become no-go areas.

”Drug traffickers, organised crime, drug users, they take over. They will get the sort of governance of those areas.

”Examples are in Brazil, Mexico, in the United States, in the UK, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, and therefore it is no good to have only law enforcement, which always shows it does not succeed.”

Prof Ghodse called for such communities to be offered drug abuse prevention programmes, treatment and rehabilitation services, and the same levels of educational, employment and recreational opportunities as in the wider society.

”Youth of these communities must have similar chances to those in the wide society and have a right to be protected from drug abuse and drug dependence,” he said.

”It is crucial that the needs of communities experiencing social disintegration are urgently tackled before the tipping point is reached, beyond which effective action becomes impossible.

”The consequences of failure are too high for society and should be avoided at all cost.”

The INCB’s annual report for 2011 found persistent social inequality, migration, emerging cultures of excess and a shift in traditional values were some of the key threats to social cohesion.

As the gap between rich and poor widens, and ”faced with a future with limited opportunities, individuals within these communities may increasingly become disengaged from the wider society and become involved in a range of personally and socially harmful behaviours, including drug abuse and drug dealing,” it said.

The report added: ”While migration offers many positive benefits to the migrant and to society at large, it can create a sense of dislocation from the surrounding community and a sense of vulnerability on the part of those who are displaced.

”Where migrating social groups have travelled from areas associated with illicit drug production and drug abuse, there is a greater likelihood of individuals engaging in forms of drug misuse as a way of coping with such a sense of dislocation.”

Celebrities’ use of illicit drugs may also ”contribute to a growing normalisation of certain forms of drug misuse within the wider society and in turn can lead to the undermining of social cohesion”.

But the INCB warned none of the factors ”should be seen as leading individuals inevitably into a lifestyle of drug abuse and criminality”.

”Whatever the social processes and social pressures at hand, human beings still have the capacity to exercise some element of choice in what they do and what they refrain from doing,” it said.

A Home Office spokesman said: ”The Ending Gang and Youth Violence report published by the Government in 2011 sets out a comprehensive strategy for supporting local areas to reduce the effects of gang violence.

”We want to stop young people from joining gangs in the first place through intervention and support to children and families at risk of gang violence.

”This will be matched with tough and intensive enforcement action to bring perpetrators to justice.”

Jane Doe to Lady Mayor : She’s the serial mistress who destroyed a defence chief. Now she’s aiming to seduce the voters of Liverpool and transform herself – by Helen Weathers – Last updated at 11:13 PM on 24th February 2012

Glamorous: Bienvenida Buck has made a career of seducing powerful and influential men

Pink champagne in hand, Bienvenida Buck leads the way into her chic new Liverpool apartment. It is only 11am but, as she explains, there is nothing quite like a fine crystal glass of something ‘light and sparkling’ to bring a glow to a lady’s complexion.

We pass through the hallway where a vast canvas of Bienvenida, painted in 1990 by royal portrait artist Richard Stone, takes pride of place. It was a wedding gift from her first husband, the late Sir Anthony Buck, former Tory MP and QC.

‘It’s magnificent, no? He used the same canvas as he used for the Queen,’ she says, padding across the pristine pale beige carpet. ‘Sir Anthony brought me into a world of beauty. He was a good man.’

Sadly for him, he was not the only man. Bienvenida has made a career of seducing powerful and influential older men, capitalising on her kittenish charms. Her most notorious conquest was Sir Peter Harding, Chief of the Defence Staff during the Gulf War, with whom she had an affair while still married to Sir Anthony.

The ‘Spanish Firecracker’, as she was dubbed by the Press, sold her story in 1994 to a red-top tabloid for a reported £150,000, ending Sir Peter’s career and accelerating her divorce from Sir Anthony (who died in 2003).

But that was 18 years ago — ancient history in Bienvenida’s eyes — and there have been two husbands (one a Count) and several lovers since.

Her third husband, Spanish lawyer Eduardo Jimeni, died from cancer in 2008, so she’s a widow now — and seemingly a merry one.

‘Marriage does not suit me,’ she says. ‘I have had 20 years of married hell. I am a romantic, I like to be taken out to dinner, to hold hands, but I will never marry again. No, no, no!

‘I don’t need companionship — I have a dog for that.’

Today, at the age of 55, the former Lady Buck is looking for a completely new direction. Where once her life’s ambition was to be the ‘power behind the throne’, now, it seems, she wants the throne for herself.

Power and passion: Lady Buck in 1994 with her ex-husband Sir Anthony Buck, left, and in 2000 with then Chief of Defence Staff Sir Peter Harding, her lover

It is hard to imagine a more unlikely candidate for Mayor of Liverpool, but Bienvenida tells me she is seriously considering throwing her designer hat into the ring.

This May, Liverpool is set to become one of the first cities outside London to ask voters to directly elect a Mayor, and Bienvenida likes the idea of becoming the North’s equivalent of London’s Boris Johnson — another blonde with an interesting private life.

Though born in Spain and a resident in Liverpool for just three years, Bienvenida firmly believes she could provide the ‘strong and accountable leadership’ required.

‘I think that I could win. I am the voice of the young people of this city. I know a lot of influential people who could bring investment to Liverpool, I have very good connections,’ she says knowingly, before taking a delicate sip of her champagne.

Independent: Lady Buck claims she is finished with marriage after three husbands, and is not looking for companionship

‘I have travelled on Concorde hundreds of times and stayed in palaces. I have lived in Dallas, Texas and Dubai. I have met princes and have contacts with very powerful entities and governments.’

Whether this is the sort of contact that might benefit Liverpool is open to debate, but Bienvenida believes she is truly in tune with her new adopted home.

‘I live in a very secure, prestigious part of Liverpool, but here I like to travel by bus. I like to go out of my comfort zone to learn about this city,’ says Bienvenida, who shares her home with her 14-year-old King Charles spaniel, named Lalique after her favourite crystal.

‘The people of Liverpool are kind and generous. I have lost my mobile phone three times and it has always been returned to me. The people here are hard workers. These are not lazy people, they are fighters. They deserve much better.’

The question is, do they deserve Bienvenida?

After all, she tells me she moved to Liverpool from St John’s Wood in London after watching an episode of the Channel 4 programme Location, Location, Location and marvelling at the ‘quality of life’ afforded by much cheaper property prices.

She knows few people in Liverpool. Much of her vision for the city is the product of conversations with the gardeners and cleaners who maintain the swish complex where she lives, or the students working part-time in the upmarket bars she frequents.

‘I don’t have many friends here, no,’ she admits. ‘I did have a couple of ladies I used to go out with, but they didn’t have much to talk about. I have never seen a woman here reading a newspaper, but I am very much in touch with the students.’

Not exactly sentiments to clinch the female votes — but to this she seems oblivious. She ushers me into her elegant living room to discuss her manifesto, which she has rather appropriately called ‘Blonde Ambitions’.

The first paragraph contains this insightful gem: ‘Cuts in manpower, police, firefighters and council workers should be avoided.’

Before we can tackle Liverpool’s infrastructure, however, Bienvenida can’t resist pointing out an exquisite Venetian mirror hanging on the wall.

‘That was a gift from a very special man in my life,’ she says coyly. ‘I’m not saying who, but he is very, very special.’

Beneath the mirror is a Lalique vase filled with more than 20 long-stemmed red roses. ‘They were a Valentine’s Day gift,’ she purrs.
Strong: Bienvenida believes she would make an excellent leader for Liverpool, despite having only moved there from London three years ago

‘Who from?’ I ask.

‘I’m not saying, nosy.’

Veering away from her agenda for Liverpool, she can’t resist telling me that middle age has done absolutely nothing to diminish her allure.

‘I have two lovers,’ she says. ‘They are both bankers — one on Wall Street in New York and the other in London. One is married and the other is not.

‘They know about each other and do not mind sharing me. They have been in my life for more than 20 years. They are very influential. They are my dear friends.’

Her second marriage in 1994 to art dealer Count Nicholas Sokolow ended in divorce after three years. Her third marriage lasted ten years.

‘My marriages have always been about men wanting to control me,’ she says now. ‘I cannot breathe when someone is pulling my strings. But I do not like to dwell on the past — my strategy is always to move forwards.

Savvy: Lady Buck admits she moved to Liverpool for the ‘quality of life’ afforded by lower property prices

‘I may be 55, but I don’t feel invisible to men. On the contrary. Thank goodness I haven’t lost my beauty and I look much younger than my years.

‘I am chatted up all the time. I’m always having to tell men “Please, I am not interested” because I only like men who can challenge my intellect, men of power who I can look up to. I am not interested in young men. Not now, and not then.

‘I make love to a man’s brains, not his body. Being with me is a privilege people have to earn. Sex is only a tiny part of seduction. Wealthy, powerful men look upon women like myself as an investment.

‘I am really enjoying being a single woman. I never feel lonely. I am the most independent woman I know. I enjoy climbing into my bed with its crisp white linen sheets and my dog, who does not snore.

‘I go to the gym, I nurture my mind, I read a lot, I love doing embroidery as I listen to music. I am never alone because I live with my ego.’

Certainly, should she stand for election, Bienvenida has one advantage over the other candidates: she has no embarrassing skeletons left to rattle in her closets. Her life is an open book. Indeed she called it The Making Of A Modern Mistress.

And on the back of her fame (or should that be infamy), 12 years ago she launched one-to-one tutorials entitled The Art of Seduction and Romancing The Rich, costing £5,000 a piece.

‘I killed the project before it even started because women were not prepared to pay £5,000 to become ladies, basically,’ she says dismissively. ‘They would rather spend the money joining a dating agency. They want short cuts.

‘Modern women are not willing to put in the hours studying art and deportment. I never asked a man to buy me jewellery or frivolities. I asked for him to invest in my future with a college course or something else which would improve me.

‘I have no regrets. I am a product of my life and the men who have been there supporting me through thick and thin.

‘If I stand for Mayor, my life will be dissected like a laboratory animal, but you know the advantage with me is that I don’t care. I have nothing to fear because the real men behind me are very powerful and they are there with me. I laugh off insults. No one can touch me. I am not hostage to my past.’

Born Bienvenida Perez-Blanco in a poor quarter of Valencia, her upbringing seems to have left indelible scars. Her mother left her father, a watch repairer, when she was two, then sent Bienvenida to live with her grandmother while she moved from Spain to England for work. The young Bienvenida then spent six miserable years in foster care from the age of ten after her grandmother died.

She was 16 when she joined her mother, who was working as a housekeeper in a smart home for elderly people — but even then she did not receive a warm welcome.

Today, she describes her mother as cold, unloving and a ‘diabolical’ woman. They remain estranged, and Bienvenida says she is grateful she never had children of her own.

‘My mother was never there for me. She didn’t deserve to have me. I have no children because I know I cannot deal with the responsibility.’

Befriended by an aristocratic resident at the home where her mother worked, Bienvenida took her advice to ‘find a husband to look after you’ to heart.
If I stand for Mayor, my life will be dissected like a laboratory animal, but you know the advantage with me is that I don’t care. I have nothing to fear because the real men behind me are very powerful and they are there with me. I laugh off insults. No one can touch me. I am not hostage to my past.

After honing her skills on a series of older men who fell under her spell, she thought she’d found the perfect husband in Sir Anthony Buck, MP for North Colchester, who was 30 years her senior.

‘Sir Anthony was a brilliant man, a highly respected barrister, Minister for the British Navy under Edward Heath. When I married him, it was my dream to have a man of power, of a certain age, that I could look up to,’ she says.

‘But sadly, he never recovered from the divorce from his first wife to whom he’d been married 34 years. He started to drink, and that coupled with the pressures of politics turned him into a very difficult man to live with. The drink took its toll on him, and later on me.’

Bienvenida says she feels no guilt about her affair with Sir Peter Harding, a married father-of-four, and that his resignation was just ‘collateral damage’.

‘I asked Sir Anthony for a divorce within a year of our marriage,’ she continues. ‘I could not cope with his drinking, and then I met Sir Peter. I was the one paying for our relationship financially. I was booking the hotels, entertaining him, giving parties, introducing him to powerful people.

‘And on my birthday, three years later, he did not even bring me a bouquet of flowers.

‘When my husband found out about our affair, he said he was going to tell the Press, instead of giving me the quiet divorce I asked for. It all started from there.’

So, Bienvenida found herself seeking advice and protection from another powerful and influential man, media agent Max Clifford.

‘I am not responsible for other people’s moralities. I am far too busy with my own. Sir Peter should not have taken me for granted,’ she says dismissively. ‘I sleep like a baby at night. I just thank God I survived.’

It took two further marriages for Bienvenida to realise she wasn’t the marrying kind. Her second also ended in scandal and the headline ‘Lady Bucky’s husband cheats with kinky sex queen’.

In 1994, American model and waitress Suzannah Fleming, then aged 39, told a red-top tabloid she’d indulged in shenanigans with the Count — involving leather, high heels and whips — three months after his wedding to Bienvenida

Nor did her third marriage bring her much happiness.

‘We separated in 2005, so I didn’t see him in the three years before he died,’ she says. ‘I couldn’t divorce Eduardo, because sometimes in life it is better not to take drastic measures and we did not want people to gossip.

‘He was a very kind man, a Spanish playboy with a heart of gold, but he didn’t know the meaning of work. I didn’t go to his funeral. I don’t do weddings and funerals or big emotions.’

But is Bienvenida really happy in her new adopted home of Liverpool, with her distant lovers, few friends, no job (she refuses to discuss finances) and mayoral ambitions?

‘I like who I am,’ she says. ‘I can sleep with my conscience and integrity. I do not regret what I had to do to survive. I am proud of the woman that I am today.’

A LC majority constituency would be winnable as many more people would not mind her background or the moral issues with thye way that wealth was obtained. The serious minded or social class conscious types, even the moral types would not vote for this example of false success. The spiritual implications on a nation would be tolerable at a certain level for a specific type of constituency, but not acceptable to run or represent a country by.

As BHO (FOX News Refers To Obama as “BHO”) continues to transform the United States into a socialist hell, yet another poke in the eye is the National Mediation Board’s proposal to make it easier for airline and railroad workers to unionize.

For 75 years, the rule has been that for any class of workers (e.g., pilots) employed by an airline or railroad to unionize, a majority of all employees in that class have to vote for unionization. But the proposed new rule would require only that a majority of employees who actually vote on the question of unionization would be needed to unionize.

All Democrats love unions; Republican progressives love unions; and even many conservatives believe that a worker should be allowed to join a union voluntarily, so long as those who do not want to join the union are not forced to do so.

Which probably makes me a minority of one. Why? Because not only do I believe that workers do not have a right to unionize a company through tyranny of the majority, I don’t believe that any worker has a right to join a union without the consent of his employer.

What would it look like if the federal behemoth were severely cut down to size? Read Wayne Allen Root’s prescription for the nation in “The Conscience of a
Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts”

It is a basic tenet of libertarian-centered conservatism that without property rights, no other rights are possible. Unfortunately, most people do not understand this fundamental concept. They view property only as inanimate matter, separate and apart from a person’s life.

In actual fact, they are so connected that one is virtually an extension of the other. If you took everything an individual owned, the fact is that he would not own his own life, because whenever he attempted to create something for his personal gain, the fruits of his labor could again be confiscated.

The same is true of purchasing property. The money used to make a purchase presumably was earned through the purchaser’s efforts. That makes the money an extension of his life, and, therefore, the same would be true of anything purchased with that money.

A libertarian-centered conservative believes that no one has a right to any other person’s property, which includes both his body and everything he owns. When people make “humanitarian” statements about human rights being more important than property rights, they are, in a sense, correct. That’s because human rights include property rights, as well as all other rights of man.

A man has the right to dispose of his life and his property in any way he chooses, without interference from anyone else. By the same token, he has no right to dispose of any other person’s life or property, no matter what his personal rationalizations may be.

As explained in “Fundamentals of Liberty,” there are only three possible ways to view property:

No.1 ANARCHY/BARBARISM

Anyone may take anyone else’s property whenever he pleases.

No.2 ABSOLUTISM/DICTATORSHIP

Some (select) people may take property of other people whenever they please.

No.3 DEMOCRACY (One-man, one-vote) / Republicanism (Lesser Representative Democracy)

No one may ever take anyone else’s property without his permission.

It is self-evident to anyone who believes in individual liberty that the only morally valid way of viewing property is No. 3. Likewise, no one has a right to tell a property owner (property being land, buildings, a business, or anything else that a person may own) what he can or cannot do with his property.

Take a business, for example. It belongs to the owner, whether he started the business himself or bought it from someone else. No one has a right to take any part of someone else’s business, nor do they have a right to tell him what he can and cannot do with his business.

If a business grows large and has millions of shareholders, the business is the property of many people – the shareholders. Thus, size is irrelevant when it comes to property rights. When property rights are violated against a multinational corporation as opposed to a “mom-and-pop” business, it simply means that far more people become victims of government aggression. It is a moral absurdity to believe that bigness validates aggression.

Therefore, as a minority of one, I am compelled to say that regardless of the size of a business, the only way unionization is morally valid is if the owner of that business voluntarily agrees to it. Why? Because it’s his business! It’s his property! And it is his human right to set the rules for his own property!

In a truly free society, a worker has one inalienable, overpowering right with regard to his job: He can quit at any time. He is not a slave, so his employer cannot chain him to his work. If he wants to belong to a union, he is free to search for employment with a company that allows workers to unionize.

The fact that so many people reading this article will find my comments to be extreme speaks only to how far down the road toward socialism we have traveled. We no longer respect property rights, especially when the property is a business. Generations have been brainwashed into believing that abstract notions such as “the good of society” and “social justice” are more important than private ownership.

The proposed new ruling by the National Mediation Board opens a debate that is nothing more than a distraction. The real debate should be over whether or not employees should be allowed to unionize at all without the consent of the owner.

This is precisely the kind of issue that has caused conservatives to lose their way over the years. Until politicians have the courage to confront an issue such as unionization head on and stop buying into debates about whether to move further to the left or stick to what has become the status-quo left, America will continue its acceleration toward total collapse – both morally and economically.

It will be interesting to see if anyone reading this article has a strong enough belief in the absolute sanctity of property rights to agree with what I’ve said here. That would be nice, because it would instantly elevate me to the status of being part of a minority of two.

Try considering the above issue on property to social freedoms now. Even for a minority of 1 (being rhetorical here, generally such uniqueness is extremely rare), no matter how rarefied/antipathetic the meme or preference, equitable space reasonable to ‘life and liberty’ as considered against the UNHCR AND access to NEUTRAL spaces must be given, must be protected. In this the district by district concept of living space earlier discussed is the best way to apply unique and diverse mosaics of disyricts (preferably with the most incompatible districts being as seperate from the least compatible ones as possible).

Try the below groups for example in order of ease of implementation for closed districts, though with access to neutral spaces, such as traveling spaces etc.. :

i) Luddites/Anti-technology types (this district being ENTIRELY free of Electrosmog, ELF or EMF emissions)
ii) Smokers-Tobacco users/Coffee users (this district will allow use of tobacco throughout/the other coffee throughout – as we know Coffee is disallowed to Xians etc..) For more information on coffee use, see : https://malaysiandemocracy.wordpress.com/category/coffee/
iii) Fundo-religionists (wearers of Burkha to any dietarily limited persons)
iv) Conscientious military objectors (refusers of military culture, who must be offered abstention options and not punitive fines and jail terms to allow them to make a choice without being punished for making a choice)
v) LGBT (non-binary gender types – as sexual-energic exchanges appear to exceed beyond a street or neighbourhood at anytime, separate districts should be considered or dedicated living spaces in generally closed districts at night may be dedicated to these persons at a quantum suitable to the number of such persons)
vi) Red Light Districts (sex workers and sex worker patrons (nominally atheists) without religious injunctions to follow)
vii) Nudists (wearers of nothing, again the psychic-vibrancy issue arises, so dedicated places for nudists could be ensured)
viii) Organic psychedelic users (again the psychic-vibrancy issue arises, so dedicated places for organics users could be ensured)
ix) advocates of right to bear arms (they could live with others fine with the preference, though perhaps with high and thick walls to prevent any accidental misfirings – this should be at cost to the users of this district IF not a majority to warrant use of tax funds)
x) Synthetic psychedelic users (due to the sometimes permanent and undesirable mental effects synthetics cause, these persons could be required to distance themselves from certain groups again, physically or otherwise – with the very most toxic and debilitating drugs left entirely illegal unless a euthanasia or consensual waiver staying awarness of potential permanent mental debilitation is considered)
xi) Neurotech/Cybernetic/Electrosmog-causing-device Areas (the enhanced or debilitating effects may require inhibitants to give signed waivers and for service providers to give accurate readings of ionising radiation and EMF or ELF emissions on a street to street basis)

All these groups or combinations thereof should have dedicated districts or spaces appropriate to their community size for expression of self,self determinism etc.. and not be subject to discriminative disenfranchising and punitive laws or uncivilised harassment by citizens with differing preferences.

This must be assured WITH government awareness, formal recognition ofthe group, guarantees (administrators of government MUST be entirely neutral and non-judgmental and have no personal preferences or if they do have such prefeerence are very aware of the need to remain neutral in applicatio of thje law as oer professional administrators) of protection from discimination by other citizens, to ensure at least civilised treatment of the person is assured as per a responsible government.

The above suggested typifies an ideal First World Country’s conditions where any disparate group’s Human Rights may not be infringed on, via illegal electronic surveillance, secret druggings, theft of tangible or intangible property, tangible or intangible spiritual property, general harrassment or bullying by the mob-minded among the majority of citizens without consent or awareness in the most abusive cases.

Note : Building space issues notwithstanding, the above concept of separate districts was extrapolated from the ‘Nudist Colony’ and ‘Red Light Districts’ concept. So I thought why not specialised districts for every other disparate and diverse group? I have hence advocated closed districts based on a single street to a few streets (for example) since . . . with the narrow minded having condemened and smeared this one’s reputation no end with all forms of indirect retaliations from neurotech implantations/NLPs that have left some of us with no privacy, our human rights invaded upon, contrived car accidents (the last one being particularly serious), psychiatry-pharma neuro-poisonings to manipulative public reactions from people unknown no end. This world does not belong to any mob minded group, the world has enough space for everyone, the selfishness, hatred, unreasonable insularism and intolerance is a sign of a very vicious, sick, uncivilised and fundamentalist minded society. Hopefully the next generation of MPs and Senators or what not will have the presence of mind to develop a conscience and mental flexibility to appreciate the rarer mosaic parts that make up any and all societies . . . diversity is strength.

A Proposal for Jenelle’s Law to protect us from brain-damaging neuroleptic drugs

The Antipsychiatry Coalition
P.O. Box 1253, Topeka, Kansas 66601-1253
antipsychiatrycoalition@usa.net

The Hon. Diana DeGette
1339 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Rep. DeGette:

Thank you for your sponsorship of The Patient Freedom from Restraint Act of 1999, H.R. 1313. Physical restraint immobilizing a person at the wrists, ankles, and neck or chest is a kind of torture psychiatrists too often wrongfully inflict on mental patients. I start to panic when I merely think about it being done to me. Thank you for your concern.

Another perhaps even worse horror psychiatrists inflict on people is permanent brain damage caused by neuroleptic drugs.

I recently met a charming young woman named Jenelle Dorner. Her story so moved me that I wrote an account of how she was damaged by neuroleptic drugs and, with her permission, posted it on the Antipsychiatry Coalition web site that I maintain. I’ve enclosed a copy of my article, which I titled “Jenelle’s Story.” Jenelle’s story illustrates what psychiatrist Peter Breggin, M.D., said in his book Psychiatric Drugs: Hazards to the Brain: By using drugs that cause brain damage, “Psychiatry has unleashed an epidemic of neurological disease on the world” one which “reaches 1 million to 2 million persons a year” (Springer, 1983, pp. 109 & 108). Jenelle’s story illustrates the failure of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to protect Americans from harmful drugs.

I propose the introduction of legislation to create a federal statute that would require the FDA to withdraw its approval of a drug if the drug causes permanent brain damage evidenced by tardive dyskinesia or dementia in more than 2% or 4% or whatever percent of patients and which would give federal district courts power to order the FDA to withdraw approval of a drug if any person files a civil action for the purpose of proving and does prove that the drug meets the statutory criteria for mandatory withdrawal of FDA approval. And I propose that the law be known as “Jenelle’s Law.”

Please read the attached article and give my proposal careful thought and let me know if you will introduce “Jenelle’s Law” for the purpose of stopping the epidemic of harm now being inflicted on millions of Americans by neuroleptic drugs.

Sincerely,
Douglas A. Smith

ARTICLE 2

INFORMED CONSENT: REALITY OR MYTH?

Informed consent represents the single most important issue in the delivery of health care.  Informed consent exists only when there is full disclose of known relevant information and known risk presented to the patient in a manner that they can understand. There are patients who did not understand that the surgical “mastectomy” they agreed to undergo involved removal of their breast.  The text, shown above, a work of fiction by Roger Radford, hit close to home on the subject of adhesive arachnoiditis; a present and real worldwide health care problem.

In the “real world” in which we exist there are often procedural modifiers which influence “full disclosure.”  Some of these have legitimacy and some do not.  It is not unusual to see a court setting as the venue by which resolution of these issues is being attempted.  One such situation is whether a medical treatment or surgery being recommended or performed is “accepted”, “standard” or “approved” and from whence the authority to determine this exists.

The challenge in determining “informed consent” becomes even greater when it becomes apparent that there are significant disparities in the definition of the terms being used.  In fact this confusion may be taken advantage of this to promote secular interests and agendas.  Medical malpractice cases based on informed consent issues (rather than negligence) as sometimes considered to represent the “soft” side of forensic medicine.  This litigation is, however, an important “safety net” for society.  It is unfortunate, but true, that informed consent sometimes been subject to serious abuse for the purpose of personal gain.  Examples of such are failure to make patients aware of minimally invasive uterine artery embolization instead of surgical hysterectomy, minimally invasive aneurysm coiling instead of open cranial surgery and reconstructive spine surgery as opposed to multi-level pedicle screw and rod “fusions.”

It is true that the practice of medicine has never related to certainties. Treatment is based on best information.  Evidence based medicine consists of  careful clinical observation and experience combined with the best scientific data available. The notion that there is no empirical basis upon which to draw valid inferences and render reasonable judgments in the treatment of patients is false. On the other hand there also exists important scientific information which never seems to make itself known to physicians responsible for patient care.  As medical practice progresses in time it becomes smarter and learns of risk factors which were previously unknown or unappreciated.  Sometimes this knowledge is privy to some who purposely do not release it or act to obfuscate it for personal gain.  The actions of the tobacco industry, over the past 50 years, makes this point.  Yet, an important landmark in forensic medicine is “what was known, and when was it known” as a determinant of informed consent.

An interesting example of this is the issue of chronic respiratory disease related to exposure to asbestos fibers.  There is a great deal of ongoing litigation against manufacturers of such products.  For the most part exposure to asbestos occurred during a period of time when neither the manufacturers, the workers or their physicians were unaware of asbestos toxicity.  Where the are the benchmarks?  How can we create expectations which are smarter than we are?

The phenomenon of “managed care” has introduced additional challenges to the concept of “informed consent.”  In their quest to justify denial of coverage for their subscribers many third party payors, seeking an opportunity to say “no” to treatment being recommended for a patient, often use the term “not proven” or “experimental” as a means of denying coverage.  What is the legal ramification of this to the physician recommending treatment?  What are the legal ramifications when care is denied and an alternative treatment goes “wrong.”  Who has the legal responsibility?  Well, up-to-now the physician has been left “blowing in the wind” on this issue.  The “worm ” is, however,  “turning.”  Now that the unique immunity against legal suit provided by ERISA is in the slow process of being stripped away by the courts the health care “playing field” may, finally, become more level.

A level playing field is particularly needed in the arena of informed consent because full disclosure of risk is typically taken to be a medical “right” in the United States (as well as a primary “standard of care”).  This is an interesting phenomenon because this concept varies considerably throughout the world (as demonstrated by the Burton Experience in the Soviet Union in the 1970s).   In the real natural world there are no “rights” for animals (astutely pointed out by Charles Darwin).  If each of us were placed naked in the center of a dense tropical jungle and we had to fend for ourselves we would discover what Darwin had in mind.

As the human race evolved on planet earth only those humans who possessed power had “rights.”  In medieval times only the monarchs and the nobility held “rights.  When the United States was young Thomas Paine and James Madison observed that rights were divided into “natural rights” (i.e. freedom of thought and speech) and “civil rights” (i.e. the right to trial by jury).  Informed consent is a civil right”, more specifically a conceptual “patient right.”   Other important conceptual “patient right” is that of the expectation of being provided with respect and consideration from a heath care system.

The Burton Report® is a strong advocate of real informed consent.  This requires the clear presentation, to a patient, of all significant potential risk.  The Burton Report® is also a strong proponent of providing patients respect and consideration.

Another position of Burton Report® is against the banning of any drug or therapy.  Banning is the making of rules “which are smarter than we are.”  One never knows when a toxic substance can be of benefit (i.e. thalidomide and botox).  The better approach for the patient, and society, is real informed consent.

Clearly, the United States is the world leader in regard to disclosure of risk to patients.  Even so there continues to be serious inadequacies and transgressions of this process which need attention.  This is, at times, difficult to address because the concept of “rights” in the United States has burst asunder to finally reach a level of true frivolity.  Perhaps this should not come as a surprise in a society where legal suits have become, as George F. Will has observed: simply a part of “a great American growth industry, litigation that expresses the belief that everyone has an entitlement to compensation for any unpleasantness.”

When one considers all the attention which has been focused on the issue of informed consent over the past few years it may seem surprising to learn that important areas of medical diagnosis and treatment still exist where full disclosure of risk has never been provided in the past and has continued to be seriously deficient in the present.

A look at the record confirms the point.  Only recently have the adverse effects of particulate radiation, exposure to toxic chemicals and cellular damage resulting from nicotine and carbon monoxide poisoning (from cigarette smoking) been disclosed.  It is important to note that most of this has occurred only as the result of litigation reflecting plaintiff rage and not as a result of governmental or medical intervention.

A good case in point is that of cigarette smoking.  From a medical standpoint, the toxic effects of cigarette smoking appear to represent the single most adverse known chronic health liability, from an external source, directed to the human body.  Remarkably, it has only been since 1997, when, as a direct response to legal actions, the actual ingredients of some cigarettes were finally disclosed to the public.

Once again, were it not for the existence of legal process to unravel the cover-up contrived by the tobacco industry the release of this important information might never have occurred.  One indication of society’s patience wearing thin was the shock therapy administered to the tobacco industry  on June 7, 2001 when a Los Angeles jury awarded $3 billon in punitive damages to a longtime smoker with lung cancer.  A key element in the resolution of this case for the plaintiff was the introduction of a 1972 memo written by a Tobacco Institute executive pointing out how the tobacco industry had successfully undercut public health concerns about the cancer risk of smoking by “creating doubt…without actually denying it” (Geyelin M: Former Two-Pack-a-Day Man Finally Satisfied His Urge to Sue, Wall St. Jour., June 8, 2001).  The fall-out from this decision continues with punitive damages being awarded against the tobacco industry for continuing “nefarious” behavior (Judge awards $15 million in punitive damages in tobacco case against R.J. Reynolds, Associated Press, June 22, 2002).

Most interested patients in the United States today are reasonably cognizant of risk factors as more trustworthy information continues to appear on the internet.  There are, however, a number of areas where informed consent remains, quite remarkably, almost absent.  In fact there are a number of examples of serious health risks which have continued unabated over many years (and sometimes decades).  Many of these are still unassociated with adequate public disclosure and few in the legal profession have yet “stepped up to the plate” to assist in assisting the public interest.

One of the most serious examples of this has been, and continues to be, the disabling complications resulting from the introduction of foreign body substances into the subarachnoid space for the purpose of myelography as well as ill-advised epidural steroid injections. The disease complication is that of clinically significant adhesive arachnoiditis.  This particular entity represents one of the most flagrant examples of a ongoing world-wide serious public health problem due to many years of industry misinformation and cover-up.  Patient suffering secondary to adhesive arachnoiditis serves as a frightening example of an area where, at the beginning of the 21st century it is difficult to find a single patient who has ever been provided with real  informed consent in this area.

What about the physicians?  As adhesive arachnoiditis expert Sarah Smith points out:

“What concerns me is that if the person informing the patient is themselves poorly or inaccurately informed then how on earth can consent ever be truly informed?”

In association with this remain remarkable examples of continuing medical ignorance relating to commonly performed procedures.  Medical informed consent is unlikely when the usual material provided to the public, by their physicians, ignores the most significant risk factors?

No area of informed consent is more important than that of medical research and the involvement of human subjects.  How can patients know the risks if they are basically unknown to science as well as the medical profession?  Unquestionably, gene research will play a very important role in future medical therapy.  Gene therapy represents a challenging voyage into uncharted water where the benefits for all mankind may be historic.  How do we know what we don’t know, and how does informed consent fit into this picture?

Summary:

It is clear that there is no risk-free state in medicine. What then are the risks of surgery? In the field of spine surgery all patients run the risk of dying, being paralyzed, experiencing a nerve injury, wound infection, medical problem, drug reaction, etc. Actually most of these serious risks also exist when the patient drives to the hospital. As an example, the United States government reported that in 1998 alone 41,480 people died from auto accidents.

Informed consent is an essential requirement for the well-being of any modern health care system in the 21st century.  Informed consent is based on full disclosure of known significant risk (the easy part).  Full disclosure of all “relevant information” is the murky component, particularly from the standpoint of jurisprudal  machinations and contrived governmental anomalies.  Informed consent litigation has created a great deal of “busy work” for attorneys.  Much of this litigation has wasted large amounts of time, talent and resource which could have been put to better use in the courtroom by pursuing more important areas of societal need.  The need the create clearly defined requirements for patient protection, taking into account the rapidly changing landscape, is an important  priority for the 21st century.

Lumbo-Sacral Adhesive Arachnoiditis – Introduction

There is no area of medicine today where greater, or more cruel suffering has been created in large populations of patients throughout the globe than those directly related to adhesive arachnoiditis of which the most common form is in the lumbo-sacral area.  Whether due to apathy, disinterest, indifference or self-protective behavior by the medical, scientific and governmental communities lumbo-sacral adhesive arachnoiditis (LSAA) and it’s potential liabilities continues to remain essentially unknown, unreported, and unrecognized among both physicians and patients.

An important reason for this state of affairs has been the pattern of organized  deception and obfuscation in regard to the safety and efficacy of oil myelographic substances such as Pantopaque® and Myodil® perpetrated by some of the originators and manufacturers of iophendylate for over half a century.  This “bodyguard of misrepresentation” and “damage control” by company lawyers has been effective in insuring that governmental agencies, physicians and patients have not been allowed to fully appreciate the risks inherent in introducing highly toxic substances into the sub-arachnoid space.  By not focusing, or adequately propagating, what is known scientifically regarding LSAA it has continued to be a serious world public health challenge and something which is continuously being  perpetrated on unsuspecting patients by their uninformed physicians.

Even today the world community has still not yet come to grips with this cruel phenomenon nor has it yet demonstrated an appropriate social conscience regarding this  disease entity.  LSAA continues to be a trail of tragedy for many unfortunate patients and new cases appear on a regular basis because of our failure to learn from history.  This regrettable situation has tended to cast those health care professionals who have tried to sound this alarm in a role similar to that of Dr. Peter Stockmann, the hero of Hendrik Ibsen’s 1882 play “An Enemy of the People.”

What determines whether or not the pathologic entity LSAA produces significant or disabling pain and neurologic impairment has a lot to do with how active or passive the meningeal reaction is.  Because of the human nervous system’s remarkable abilities to recover from insult if given the opportunity many patients with LSAA are asymptomatic but exist in a precarious balance where things could easily change for the worse if a patient is subject to additional insult.

Remarkably there are still those who actually insist that the pathologic entity LSAA “does not even exist .”  Fortunately these individuals belong to the ever-diminishing circle of those who also believe that:

The Holocaust never happened.
Americans never really landed on the moon (it was staged).
September 11, 2001 was really an Israeli plot.

The saga of adhesive arachnoiditis is not just something of historical interest.  In no area of medicine has failure of “informed consent” been more evident than in the continuing saga of this disease process.  The discussion of this rather incredible and continuing misadventure, which focuses on the  neurotoxicity of foreign body substances being introduced into the subarachnoid space for the purposes of myelography and epidural steroid administration, begins with a review of these subjects:

Myelography

Myelography, is an invasive diagnostic test in which a radio-opaque substance is placed in the subarachnoid space so that the space can be visualized by x-ray. The first contrast material used for this purpose was air. Air myelography developed from innovations in air ventriculography and air encephalography started in 1918, by Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Walter Dandy.  Because air was difficult to visualize on x-ray a search for alternatives began.  In 1932 thorium dioxide (Thorotrast®) was first introduced.  It appeared to be ideal for the purpose of myelography (and other diagnostic studies) and were it not for the fact that it was radioactive it would have been.  Thorium dioxide turned out to be a highly toxic radioactive substance.  It was only 20-30 years after its introduction that the medical profession began to suspect that the sudden and  unusually high incidence of malignancies involving the brain and spinal cord (as well as adhesive arachnoiditis) might be related to thorium dioxide’s radioactivity.  At this point this myelographic agent “fell into disuse.”

Epidural Steroids

The “epidural” space is separated from the subarachnoid space only by the thin dura mater membrane and its associated filamentous pia mater. Epidural steroid administration is an empiric therapeutic modality commonly performed for the treatment of low back disorders. If the steroid is inadvertently injected into the subarachnoid space rather than the epidural space serious disability and incapacitation can result. Although all foreign body substances introduced into the subarachnoid space are “irritating” others can be highly neurotoxic. The most significant example of such neurotoxic agents are those containing ethylene glycols to allow for slow release (i.e. Depo-Medrol® , Depo-Medrone®, Aristocort® and Methylprednisolone Suspension®).  When introduced into the subarachnoid space these materials can be highly neurotoxic and productive of a potentially disabling condition referred to as adhesive arachnoiditis. Since none of these steroids is approved, by their manufacturers, for epidural injection, and that they are clearly know to be toxic if misinjected, it is interesting to note that they still appear to be used by the majority of physicians now performing epidural steroid injections.

A prudent individual would assume that the medical leaders in performing, teaching, and publishing on epidural steroids would be acutely cognizant of the most potentially serious patient complication of “epidural” steroid administration. The facts suggest otherwise.  A prominent medical publisher, publishing 16 spine-related patient manuals including “Lumbar Epidural Injection” and “Cervical Epidural Injection” has, under the section on “risks and complications”, made no mention of adhesive arachnoiditis, the most serious potential complication of epidural steroid administration. This is despite the fact that new cases of incapacitating adhesive arachnoiditis directly related to inadvertent subarachnoid administration of neurotoxic steroids are being diagnosed by spine specialists on a continuing basis.

Are there alternatives to potentially neurotoxic formulations of methyl- prednisolone for epidural administration? Indeed there are. Why are they not used? The best answer is colossal ignorance, indifference, deception, or worse. Methyl prednisolone “suspensions” have neither “fallen into disuse” nor have they been officially identified as being a serious potential risk to the public health in any country at this time.  What does this revelation mean in regard to informed consent?  Might viewing Burton Report® allow patients to ask the right questions as to just which drugs will be injected and techniques used prior to therapy?  Will physicians, because of these questions from informed patients, begin to modify their practice?  We certainly hope so.  It is sad to observe that once again, the public may be forced to call upon the good offices of the legal profession to help in promoting awareness of this clear and present danger because of failure by the health care establishment and elected officials to accept responsibility and become involved.

Intrathecal Catheters

The use of intrathecally placed (within the subarachnoid space) catheters for the purpose of delivering drugs (i.e. morphine for pain relief, baclofin for control of spasm) is not without risk of producing local adhesive arachnoiditis.  These catheters can produce focal adhesive arachnoiditis, cysts and other inflammatory problems.  That such risks exist should be explained to patients as part of the preoperative informed consent process.  It should also be an important part of the risk versus benefit consideration for even considering such therapy in patients with normal life expectancies.

Summary

Clinically significant lumbo-sacral adhesive arachnoiditis is a particularly cruel disease because of the nature of the pain syndrome associated with it.  Yet, its pathophysiology is well understood and is no mystery.  Yet, for those desiring an objective determination of the existence or absence of adhesive arachnoiditis non-invasive high-resolution MRI scans have now allowed definitive determination of this frightening pathologic entity.

The nature of the pain associated with adhesive arachnoiditis is uniquely incapacitating and dolorologists have created the term “regional complex pain disorder” (RCPD) to describe it.  Apologists for those who have created adhesive arachnoiditis and RCPD in patients have pointed out that only 1-5% of those with the condition actually have the full-blown clinical symptoms (which can include progressive neurologic deficit and even death).  The reason for this is interesting and appears to relate to the remarkable ability of the nervous system, with its great reserve and redundancy, to cope with severe insult and injury (if applied in a gradual fashion).  It appears that despite being enmeshed in solid collagenous scar tissue and being deprived of the nurturing of cerebrospinal fluid and its normal vascular supply nerve cells can often achieve a tenuous equilibrium.  This delicate balance can, however, be easily upset by additional insult or injury (i.e. spinal surgery or a motor vehicle accident releasing blood into the subarachnoid space).

There are a number of other neurologic parallels to the phenomenon of nervous system acclimization.  One such is the “post-polio syndrome” where individuals afflicted with poliomyelitis early in life may make complete functional recoveries but as they age they experience progressive weakness.  In this circumstance polio has destroyed the neuronal reserve and normal function belies the fact that there is no reserve.  As the normal process of aging occurs and neurons die by attrition the lack of reserve is evidenced by the inability of the few remaining viable neurons to handle the challenge of normal function.  The human body functions well with only one kidney, one lung etc.  No one would  dare to suggest that the loss of these organs was not inconsequential to the welfare of the individual.  In the case of adhesive arachnoiditis the story has, unfortunately to date,  been different.

Expressions of  plight by individuals suffering with adhesive arachnoiditis are common. The many individuals legitimately suffering from adhesive arachnoiditis often are undiagnosed only because of healthcare establishment inadequacies. The legitimate disability of these unfortunates is then looked upon with distain by the medical and legislative communities who, because of their own diagnostic limitations, tend too often to consider these patients to be malingerers (or worse).  The sad result of this are legions of patients seeking only the dignity of a definitive diagnosis from professional groups and organizations whose skill at evasion and cover-up have unfortunately exceeded their other talents. The disrespectful manner in which many countries have treated these unfortunates, whose only crime was not knowing the right questions to ask before a “minimally invasive” myelogram or epidural steroid injection was performed, has been sad to see.

Sadly, the rare examples where recourse has occurred typically has represented the compassion of the legal profession again serving as a societal “safety net.”  Even so legal attempts at legitimate recourse have been hampered by unrealistic “statue of limitation” requirements.  Unfortunately, tort litigation reform has focused only on limiting the liability of transgressors so that their exposure becomes only a “business expense” and not something which will actually change their behavior.

The Editor, as a health care professional who has been concerned with the subject of neurotoxicity and patients suffering from adhesive arachnoiditis for over a quarter of a century has, as his only excuse for becoming involved in an issue emulating Hendrik Ibsen’s “Enemy of the People”,  is not being “smart enough to know when to quit.”

Conspiracy Theory on Organic Drugs (if not a neurotech induced thought line) – by @AgreeToDisagree – 20th February 2012

Symbolism of the Opium bed = Psychiatrists couch dawned upon me while doing casual searches for old opium posters.

This is where the drug is administered under neuotech control, to induce neurotech control.

The NLP, perhaps psychic, links are based on/intended for sequestration of Opium’s ‘power’ by HUMAN BEINGS, namely psychiatrists who probably are chemically  (enhanced) tghe same way non-psychiatrists are chemically suppressed so that the SOUL or tretment of SOUL nominally formerly the realm of shamans and soothsayers, are now dominated byu chemiocally drugged up people with no morals.

This allows ‘peaceful feelings’ to become a franchise CONTROLLED by psychiatrists and their drugged up natures (taking drugs to increase telepathy, stronger control of other minds via good drugs), as well as their drugged up (weakened via bad drugs) ‘clients’ who will have to PAY them for their addiction POSING as pharma drugs. This is denounced by ANY and ALL countries which have a legalized drug law. Instead of creating dependency and high fees for profiteering psychiatrists, the honest government legalizes.

The psyche establishment in the 3rd world is thus complicit in addicting populations unawares, perhaps via foods, or other beverages to addict at cost.

How does this theory sound?

Thai Girl Sentenced to Death for Transporting Drugs Posted on February 11, 2012

Raveeploy Sangkam is a salesgirl from Thailand swallowed 83 pellets containing drugs. She was sentenced to death by a High Court in nearby Malaysia for trafficking in 765.9gm of cocaine.

She committed the offense in a bathroom of the Serdang Hospital in Sepang between 5-8 November, 2010.  Raveeploy was detained at the Kuala Lumpur  International Airport (Malaysia) upon arriving from Buenos Aires, Argentina.  This was a transit stop for her before taking a flight on to Bangkok.

The authorities found nothing in her bag but when they brought her to the hospital and did an X-ray examination, they found foreign objects in her body. 83 pellets were found (in her stool).

According to testimony in court, the accused had met an Argentinian man named Rado on the Internet.  Raveeploy then travelled to Argentina to meet Rado.  It was said that Rado had asked her to carry the drug pellets and promised her US$5,000 upon her arrival in Bangkok.

The accused swallowed the pellets 7 hours before her flight

This sentence is ludicrous, but the woman concerned is obviously pretty stupid as well. Killing people doesn’t deter those who are greedy, desperate or stupid – all it does is fuel the demand for the drug suppliers to find more people to run the risk.

It’s high time the entire approach to drugs changed, but in the meantime while we live in this barbaric world, stay away from any illegal substance in Asia.

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

Though there was intent to distribute dangerous drugs, none were distributed and the offender did not harm anyone and does not need to lose her life. Save taxpayer on the applied hanging death (a circus of viciousness if anything) and kick the offender Raveeploy Sangkam out of the country you prison contractor enriching judges! Send them to the freest of the 3rd world or those drug legalized countries where they will be happy with the laws there, and can get stoned, grow psychedelics and hallucinate until the next Messiah arrives (this is up to Thailand to decide when of course – nabbing dealers and traffickers who would otherwise be salesmen and merchants and growers there will result in more rubbish). Give them a nice list of countries to choose from or just END PROHIBITION LAWS. But bar them from using passports after they reach their destination. Another drug addict or few in those areas will make no difference. The onus of prevention is upon the authorities. This is wasted manpower and funds when a simple solution as above can be used. Well send them to their fav place since none died, waste of money. Otherwise amend those laws and legalize with price controls and state controlled sales!

Big Ben terror gang get shorter jail terms: Credit for early pleas that saved taxpayers £2.5m By Rebecca Camber Last updated at 8:01 AM on 10th February 2012

Ringleader: Mohammed Chowdhury was jailed for 13 years and eight months for his part in the plot

Nine men who plotted a Mumbai-style series of terror attacks on Britain had their sentences cut by a fifth yesterday after their guilty pleas prevented a £2.5million trial.

A judge ruled that the fanatics who plotted a Christmas bombing campaign with targets including the London Stock Exchange, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey should serve 20 per cent less time behind bars in exchange for the 11th-hour plea bargain.

Mr Justice Wilkie said the gang deserved double the 10 per cent credit usually given for a guilty plea because their high-security trial would have lasted five months, costing the taxpayer an estimated £2.5million.

The ruling means that the group’s ringleader Mohammed Chowdhury, 21, will walk free in less than six years.

Other members of the gang received even shorter terms, with one set to serve less than two years.

All nine defendants pleaded guilty last week on the eve of their trial following a so-called ‘Goodyear’ direction hearing, in which defence barristers received guidance from the judge about the length of sentence the defendants would expect if they admitted guilt.

Shah Rahman
Gurukanth Desai

Abdul Miah
Omar Latif

Usman Khan
Mohammed Shahjahan

Mohibur Rahman
Nazam Hussain

Guilty: (Top row and left on 2nd row) Shah Rahman, Gurukanth Desai and Abdul Miah, who were part of the quartet guilty of the most serious terror charges in the case. On the 2nd row, right, is Omar Latif, from Cardiff. Left to right on the third row are Usman Khan and Mohammed Shahjahan from Stoke and on the bottom row are Mohibur Rahman and Nazam Hussain, also from Stoke : THE SENTENCES IN FULL

Mohammed Chowdhury – extended sentence of 18 years and 8 months with a custodial element of 13 years and eight months.
Gurukanth Desai – extended sentence of 17 years with a custodial element of 12 years
Nazam Hussain – indeterminate sentence with a minimum term of eight years
Usman Khan – indeterminate sentence with a minimum term of eight years
Omar Latif – extended sentence of 15 years and four months with a 10 years and four months custodial element
Abdul Miah – extended sentence of 21 years and 10 months, with a 16 years and 10 months custodial element
Mohibur Rahman – five years in prison
Shah Rahman – extended sentence of 18 years with a custodial element of 12 years.
Mohammed Shahjahan – indeterminate sentence with a minimum term of eight years and ten months.

Yesterday Mr Justice Wilkie said: ‘In most cases a plea of guilty on the outset of the trial results in a discount against sentence of the order of 10  per cent.

‘This is a trial of unusual complexity and length. Had it [been] fought it was estimated that it could have lasted up to five months at huge further public expense.’

He added that because the defendants pleaded guilty to ‘very serious’ offences and exposed themselves to ‘lengthy’ prison sentences, ‘in my judgment the appropriate discount for a plea of guilty in this case is of the order of 20 per cent’.

Last night Tory MP Patrick Mercer questioned whether the cost of a trial should determine the tariff of terrorists who could have killed thousands.

Had they faced trial, the plotters could have expected sentences of about 20 years.

‘We have to ask if it’s right that cost overrules a serious and credible punishment,’ Mr Mercer said.

‘Whilst there is more to this than meets the eye, a light sentence like this has always got to be balanced against its deterrent effect. Six or so years seems remarkably lenient in respect of plans to murder huge numbers of people.’

Target: The group had lined up Big Ben (right) on their terror hitlist of iconic London landmarks

Target: The London Stock Exchange was on a list of terror targets found by police

Plot: The group planned to send a mail bomb to the American Embassy in London

Plot: The group planned to send a mail bomb to the American Embassy in London

Police arrested the Al-Qaeda-inspired radicals on December 20, 2010, four days before they planned to plant their first bomb in the toilets of the London Stock Exchange.

They found a handwritten list of targets which included the U.S. Embassy and the homes of London Mayor Boris Johnson, the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral and two rabbis.

Target: London Mayor Boris Johnson’s name and home address appeared on a handwritten list of targets found at Choudhury’s home by police

The gang also carried out surveillance of other possible targets including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster and the London Eye.

The group planned to send five bombs in the post to London synagogues and the Church of Scientology headquarters, as well as spreading panic in Stoke-on-Trent by planting bombs in pub and club toilets.

Their plot was foiled after the security services bugging their homes and cars heard discussions of a ‘Mumbai’ atrocity on the streets of Britain, mirroring the guerrilla-style 2008 attack in India.

Yesterday police released photographs of the gang holding a series of secret meetings after Chowdhury, of Tower Hamlets, and 29-year-old Shah Rahman, from Newham, travelled from east London to meet Cardiff plotters Omar Latif, 28, Gurukanth Desai, 30, and Abdul Miah, 25, in a country park in Wales.

There, they were met by another terror cell from Stoke-on-Trent comprising Usman Khan, 20, Mohammed Shahjahan, 27, Mohibur Rahman, 27, and Nazam Hussain, 26.

Mr Justice Wilkie said the discussions did not just relate to ‘a single imminent incident’ but ‘a range of possible types of attack and targets’, as well as a plan to ‘finance, construct and operate a terrorist training facility’ in Pakistan.

Surveillance: Chowdhury and Shah Rahman were both seen studying Westminster Abbey

Tourist attraction: The London Eye also came under surveillance

Urban beauty spot: Roath Park in Cardiff, where the gang first met

Chowdhury, Shah Rahman, Miah and Desai admitted preparing to commit an act of terrorism. Chowdhury was handed a 13 year and eight month sentence while Shah Rahman was jailed for at least 12 years, Miah for at least 16 years and 10 months and Desai for at least 12 years.

They will be eligible for release after serving half of their sentence, and are likely to spend even less time behind bars owing to time served on remand.

Of the Stoke-based cell, Shahjahan – described as a serious jihadist who once appeared in a BBC documentary talking about bringing Sharia law to the UK – was given an indeterminate sentence with a minimum term of eight years and ten months.

Khan and Hussain were given indeterminate sentences with a minimum term of eight years. Mohibur Rahman was jailed for five years after pleading guilty to possession of Al-Qaeda magazines featuring bomb-making instructions.

Latif was jailed for 10 years and four months for assisting the others to engage in acts of terrorism by attending two planning meetings.

The comments below have been moderated in advance.

They planned to terrorism and they DESERVE credit for saving the taxpayer money????? What planet do these judges live on?

Why can’t we have a law that if any person is convicted of terrorist acts or intent to commit terrorist acts, they must be given life sentences without parole? That would ensure that they would never be released, and they would rot away for ever in prison. I would suggest that a special prison be built for such people.

Mo. teen gets life with possible parole in killing Associated PressBy DAVID A. LIEB | Associated Press – 59 mins ago

FILE – In this Dec. 8, 2009 file photo, Alyssa Bustamante, 15, listens during a brief hearing where her attorney entered not guilty pleas on her behalf to charges of armed criminal action and first-degree murder in Cole County Circuit Court in Jefferson City, Mo. Bustamante, who admitted stabbing, strangling and slitting the throat of a young neighbor girl, wrote in her journal on the night of the killing that it was an “ahmazing” and “pretty enjoyable” experience — then headed off to church with a laugh. The words written by Bustamante were read aloud in court Monday, Feb. 6, 2012, as part of a sentencing hearing to determine whether she should get life in prison or something less for the October 2009 murder of her neighbor, 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten, in a small town west of Jefferson City.

This photo released Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012 by the Cole County sheriff’s office shows …

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri teenager who had described the slaying of a young neighbor girl as an “ahmazing” thrill made an emotional apology Wednesday to the girl’s family and was sentenced to a potential lifetime in prison.

Moments before her sentence was imposed, 18-year-old Alyssa Bustamante rose from her chair — with shackles linking her ankles and holding her hands to her waist — and turned to face the family of 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten, whom she confessed to killing in October 2009.

“I really am extremely, very sorry for everything. I know words,” she said, pausing to take a deep breath and struggling to compose herself, “can never be enough, and they can never adequately describe how horribly I feel for all of this.”

She later added: “If I could give my life to get her back I would. I’m sorry.”

Elizabeth’s mother, Patty Preiss, who on the first day of Bustamante’s sentencing hearing called her an “evil monster” and declared “I hate her,” sat silently, staring forward as Bustamante’s finished her apology.

Cole County Circuit Judge Pat Joyce then sentenced Bustamante to the maximum possible sentence for second-degree murder — life in prison with the possibility of parole. She ordered the teenager to serve a consecutive 30-year term for armed criminal action, a charge resulting from her use of a knife to slit the throat and stab Elizabeth after she had strangled her into unconsciousness.

Elizabeth’s family declined to comment about the sentencing, as did Bustamante’s family.

There were no immediate indications that Bustamante planned to appeal the sentence.

Bustamante originally had been charged with first-degree murder but pleaded guilty last month to the lesser charges to avoid a trial and the possibility of spending her life in an adult prison with no chance of release.

Bustamante was 15 years old at the time of Elizabeth’s murder in the small town of St. Martins, just west of Jefferson City. Evidence presented during her hearing revealed that Bustamante had dug a shallow grave in the woods several days in advance, then used her younger sister to lure Elizabeth out of her home with an invitation to play. Bustamante, who had hidden a knife in a backpack, said she had a surprise for Elizabeth in the forest. The surprise turned out to be her demise.

During her two-day sentencing hearing, prosecutors referred repeatedly to an entry Bustamante wrote in her journal on Oct. 21, 2009 — the night of Elizabeth’s death — in which she admitted to having just killed someone.

“I strangled them and slit their throat and stabbed them now they’re dead,” Bustamante wrote in her diary, which was read in court by a handwriting expert. “I don’t know how to feel atm. It was ahmazing. As soon as you get over the ‘ohmygawd I can’t do this’ feeling, it’s pretty enjoyable. I’m kinda nervous and shaky though right now. Kay, I gotta go to church now…lol.”

Bustamante then left for a youth dance at a Mormon church her family attended while hundreds of volunteers began a two-day hunt for the dead girl. Although she initially lied to authorities about Elizabeth’s whereabouts, Bustamante eventually confessed to police and led them to Elizabeth’s leaf-covered shallow grave.

Defenses attorneys had argued for leniency after presenting evidence from family members and mental health experts about Bustamante’s troubled childhood. Bustamante was born to teenage, drug-abusing parents; her father was imprisoned and her mother abandoned her, leaving her in the legal custody of her grandmother.

After a suicide attempt on Labor Day 2007 as she was starting eighth grade, Bustamante was prescribed the antidepressant Prozac. Her dosage had been increased just two weeks before Elizabeth’s death. A defense psychiatrist testified that the medication could have made Bustamante moodier and more violent and contributed to the murder — a theory rejected by a different psychiatrist testifying for prosecutors.

Charlie Moreland, one of Bustamante’s attorneys, described the sentence imposed Wednesday as “a harsh punishment.”

“This was a child who had been spiraling out of control, but has treatable conditions,” Moreland said.

Under Missouri guidelines, Bustamante would have to serve 35 years and 5 months in prison before she is eligible for parole, said Department of Corrections spokesman Chris Cline. It’s also possible that the more than two years Bustamante spent in jail while awaiting her sentencing could be counted toward that time.

After spending several weeks at a diagnostic prison, Bustamante could be placed in either one of Missouri’s two female prisons or sent out of state. Cline said department officials also would evaluate whether Bustamante should be kept separate from other adult woman inmates.

Save those 40-60 years worth of taxpayer funds and offer the ‘A Life fer a Life’ Xian option. If none of the family take up the ‘killback’ then shoot, harvest and dispose (harvested parts returnable for final rites when receipients die – spiritual requirements). So many tax funds do not justify unless the work done in prison can offset the expense. Sounds like something spiritual here though . . . Bustamante looks abit like that Ruth Marx character from ‘The Net’ . . . Once again, where possible, all criminals should in the interest of saving tax monies spent on prison contractors, be sent to any country which will have them as regular citizens.

America’s Racist Drug Laws – by Stephen Lendman – 2-6-12

In Abuse of Power, advocacy, amendments to law needed, better laws, drug laws, drugs, racism on February 7, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Sentencing Project Executive Director Marc Mauer’s a leading expert on sentencing, race, and criminal justice.

For 25 years, it’s “work(ed) for a fair and effective criminal justice system by promoting reforms in sentencing law and practice, and alternatives to incarceration.”

Criminal injustice is pervasive, especially against people of color. Racial and ethnic minorities comprise over 60% of America’s prison population. “For black males in their twenties, 1 in every 8 is in prison or jail on any given day.”

America’s racist war on drugs disproportionately targets people of color and ethnic minorities. They comprise 75% of those in prison on drug related charges.

On March 17, 2011, Mauer testified before the US Sentencing Commission regarding proposed federal drug offense sentencing guideline amendments to the 2010 Fair Sentencing Act.

He said in 2009, drug offenses accounted for over half (51%) of the federal prison population. Those imprisoned represent a 20-fold increase since 1980. Their numbers exceed those incarcerated in 1980 for all offenses. They’re the most significant source of America’s 700% federal prison growth.

In recent years, state incarcerations stabilized. Federal ones keep rising. Drug related offenses are most responsible. Racial and ethnic minorities are grievously harmed. Reform is urgently needed.

Mandatory minimum sentences exacerbate the problem. So do other racist policies, including judicial unfairness, three strikes and you’re out, get tough on crime policies, and a guilty unless proved innocent mentality.

New York’s 1973 Rockefeller drug laws are most pernicious. Anyone convicted of selling two ounces or more of heroin, morphine, “raw or prepared opium,” cocaine, or cannabis, or possessing four ounces of the same substances receive mandatory 15-year minimum sentences up a maximum of 25 years to life.

In 1979, marijuana possession penalties were reduced from crimes to misdemeanors. However, aggressive pursuit of offenders continues, especially in New York City. More on that below.

Nationwide crack cocaine (vs. powder) and marijuana possession penalties are also pernicious. Until revised under the 2010 Fair Sentencing Act, first time offenders convicted of possessing as little as five grams of crack (one ounce = 28 grams) automatically got five years in prison.

The new law reduces, but doesn’t eliminate, the disparity between crack and powder cocaine. Henceforth, possessing 28 or more grams of crack subjects offenders to penalties up to five years. Mandatory simple possession sentencing ended. In addition, courts may reduce prior sentencing disparities.

Nonetheless, pot busts define America’s drug war. In 2006, Mauer said primary focus since 1990 shifted to marijuana offenses. As a result, they comprised 82% of the increase in drug arrests. Virtually all of them were for possessing small amounts. Enforcement costs are enormous – $4 billion or more annually for marijuana alone.

Under the 1970 federal Controlled Substances Act, cannabis is a Schedule I drug, meaning it’s defined as having high potential for abuse. So far, redefinition attempts failed. In 2001, the Supreme Court ruled against medical marijuana use in United States v. Oakland Cannabis Buyers’ Cooperative.

In Gonzales v. Raich (2005), the High Court ruled that Congress, under the Constitution’s Commerce Clause, may criminalize the production and use of home-grown cannabis, even where states approve it for medicinal purposes. More on that below.

A Brief History of Legal Cannabis in America

In 1619, Jamestown colonial law required settlers to grow hemp. George Washington grew it as one of his main crops. Its use for rope and fabric was common throughout 18th and 19th century America.

Around 1860, cannabis regulations and restrictions were first instituted. After 1906, states began labeling it poisonous. In the 1920, prohibitions began. By the mid-1930s, all states enacted regulations, including 35 under the Uniform State Narcotic Drug Act. Violators were penalized but not imprisoned.

In the 1970s, communities began abolishing state laws and local regulations banning cannabis possession. Federal laws remain in place. In the 1990s, local sale for medical purposes began even though doing so conflicts with federal law.

Nonetheless, 16 states and the District of Columbia legalized medical marijuana, including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

Expect others to follow. Possession amounts and other legal provisions vary by state, but the message is clear. Medicinal marijuana works. As a result, criminalizing it harms those dependent for relief.

In addition, it’s a growing revenue source for budget-strapped states. It also produces jobs when they’re most needed. It’s a win-win, regardless of outdated, counterproductive and repressive federal policies.

Efficacious substances should be encouraged, not prohibited. In 1850s America, pharmacies carried medicinal cannabis. Around the same time, states began regulating pharmaceutical sales, including penalties for mislabeling and adulterated substances.

It became a slippery slope toward criminalizing cannabis. Today’s momentum suggests eventual legalization, starting with medicinal use.

Racially Biased New York City Marijuana Policies

In 2008, the New York ACLU published a report titled, “Marijuana Arrest Crusade: Racial Bias and Police Policy in New York City – 1997 – 2007.”

From 1977 – 1986, 33,000 possession arrests were made. Numbers declined to 30,000 from 1987 – 1996. However, from 1997 – 2006, they exploded to 353,000. Today, outside the report’s timeline, they number around 50,000 annually for simple possession of small amounts. More on that below.

US Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas once said:

“As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”

In New York City, Blacks and Hispanics are Exhibit A. They’ve been victimized by racist drug enforcement, notably for cannabis possession. From 1997 – 2006, Blacks comprised 52% of arrests, Hispanics another 31%. Whites accounted for 15%.

Those arrested and jailed affected 185,000 Blacks, 110,000 Hispanics, but only 53,000 Whites for minor possession offenses. Most were aged 26 or younger. About 91% were males.

Under Mayor Rudy Giuliani (January 1994 – December 2001), marijuana possession arrests exploded 10-fold. Under Mayor Michael Bloomberg (January 2002 – present), they’re higher than ever. At the same time, New York police provide little information. As a result, few New Yorkers know their city conducts “a historically unprecedented marijuana arrest crusade.”

Cops involved up to top commanders benefit. Marijuana busts are safe. Involved officers and supervisors accrue overtime pay, and produce numbers showing productivity. [[[ *** All a waste of energy compared to a singl legalize bill with price controls as well *** ]]]

In contrast, those arrested are harmed even if not prosecuted. Procedures include handcuffing, fingerprinting, photographing, and potentially obtaining DNA samples. Often people with no criminal records are affected. Henceforth they’ll have one and plenty of baggage.

Whether or not convicted, employment and educational opportunities, mortgages or other loans, public housing benefits, licenses, travel visas, and good credit standing are at risk.

Moreover, arrests and overnight custody alone are humiliating, degrading, alienating and unjust for possessing small amounts of controlled substances, especially marijuana that long ago should have been legalized.

Last September, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly responded to public pressure. As a result, he ordered commanders not to arrest people possessing small marijuana amounts unless they’re in public view.

In 1979, New York state decriminalized amounts of 25 grams or less. Henceforth, displaying it publicly became low-level misdemeanors, subject to ticketing, not arrests or jailing.

New York City’s stop-and-frisk policy drew widespread criticism. Mostly Black and Hispanic males are targeted. Police routinely confront them, demand their pockets be emptied, and if marijuana is displayed, they’re arrested for having it in public view. As a result, around 50,000 annually are criminalized unjustly.

At the time, critics called Kelly’s action important. Chief Legal Aid Society attorney Steven Banks said it would make a tremendous difference to wrongfully targeted young minorities.

Drug Policy Alliance executive director Ethan Nadelmann called the order a significant change in how police deal with minor marijuana possession cases. Hopefully, “gross racial disparity” would be curbed.

Kelly’s order in part read:

“Questions have been raised about the processing of certain marijuana arrests.” Henceforth, “(a) crime will not be charged to an individual who is requested or compelled to engage in the behavior that results in the public display of marijuana.” Displaying it must be “actively undertaken of the subject’s own volition.”

Queens College sociologist Harry G. Levine said public defenders and legal aid lawyers estimate up to three-fourths of those arrested displayed it on police orders. Those affected don’t know they’re illegal, but police are very intimidating.

Last year, Brooklyn Democratic assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries and Republican Senator Mark Grisanti sponsored legislation to downgrade small possession public displays from misdemeanors to a lessor violations. Bloomberg opposed them, claiming it would encourage greater use.

Despite Kelly’s order, marijuana arrests declined slightly but continue. So does NYPD’s racist crusade. Bloomberg supports it. So does Kelly tacitly. In 2010, one in every seven city arrests were for displaying marijuana in public view. Illegal police searches and false charges were mostly responsible.

Last year, New York’s illegal stop-and-frisk policy affected over 600,000 people, overwhelmingly young Black and Hispanic males. Despite Kelly’s order, illegal arrests continue. Institute for Juvenile Reform and Alternatives member Chino Hardin said “build(ing) a movement to stop” New York’s crusade is essential.

On December 8, the ACLU called “NYPD Pot Arrests Habit….Tough to Break,” saying:

Police Commissioner Kelly’s order lowered arrests slightly, but maintained New York’s distinction as “the marijuana arrest capital of the world. This just won’t do.”

City Hall policy is at fault. People of color are aggressively targeted for petty offenses like “graffiti, disorderly conduct, and – you guessed it – minor marijuana possession.”

Ingrained habits are hard to break. Kelly’s order lacked teeth, especially without City Hall’s endorsement.

As a result, New York Black and Hispanic youths face unrelenting persecution unless public pressure forces legislative relief. It’s long overdue nationwide with teeth.

1) New York’s 1973 Rockefeller drug laws are most pernicious. Anyone convicted of selling two ounces or more of heroin, morphine, “raw or prepared opium,” cocaine, or cannabis, or possessing four ounces of the same substances receive mandatory 15-year minimum sentences up a maximum of 25 years to life.

Someone gets high for a day for using what he grew that Mother Nature provided, then all the taxpayers get to support his a$$ for life? Keep at it USA, this way we can be sure that USA will never be a viable super power, all the money is spent on prisons and all the population is in prison. Meanwhile the Senate or Congress or what not enjoys whatever psychedelics they like at parties, the double standards are unbelievable . . .

2) In addition, it’s a growing revenue source for budget-strapped states. It also produces jobs when they’re most needed. It’s a win-win, regardless of outdated, counterproductive and repressive federal policies.

Supporting a supposed ‘criminal’s’ (who decides what is criminal?) a$$ in prison is NOT A JOB that any self respecting person weant to do. It may pay well but only the most corruoted souls on the planet would want to do that sort of job. Even the homeless and beggars have more dignity and principles, get a REAL job so-called government employees, and the state should produce REAL jobs . . . enriching prison contractors is just institutionalized corruption . . . USA sucks, and the writer sucks for sayong jobs are produced when the economy is being destroyed and productivity is wasted, human rights abused . . .

3) In Gonzales v. Raich (2005), the High Court ruled that Congress, under the Constitution’s Commerce Clause, may criminalize the production and use of home-grown cannabis, even where states approve it for medicinal purposes. More on that below.

Who are these ‘high court’ people? Who are their affiliates? What phenotypes are they of? Who are their business partners and friends, fellow colluders? Identify all these groups and the neo-feudalist, lack of neutrality/democracy faction of the USA is exposed. Voters must find this out and make sure that these people from above groups are NEVER voted into power or heck, even promoted into positions of power like ‘High Court’. These are plants that grow on their own, and have been placed there by ‘God’ if you believe in ‘God’, for humanity to use. No group of people have authority, least of all by threat of incarceration or arms to prevent any person from using these things. Barring the ‘psychic’ issue which doubtless can be worked around with secure usage facilities and perhaps specialty districts, there is no democratic or human rights basis for preventing people from using psychedelics AS per their desire and with informed consent

4) Despite Kelly’s order, marijuana arrests declined slightly but continue. So does NYPD’s racist crusade. Bloomberg supports it. So does Kelly tacitly. In 2010, one in every seven city arrests were for displaying marijuana in public view. Illegal police searches and false charges were mostly responsible.

Ok so 3 abusers have been fingered here. Mayor Bloomberg, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly and Youth Organizer and Campaign Coordinator for the Prison Moratorium Project Chino Hardin. Kick them out of office by not voting them where they cannot use the vast powers of government to harm ordinary people looking to enjoy a simple high. It’s just a high. In Chino’s case set up a parallel but opposing Institution At most offer, ‘Psychedelics use rooms’ where the users can isolate themselves and when sobered up can go out again to live a normal life. Itt is unconscionable to arrest then burden the taxpayers.

The Perniciousness of ZTP (keeping psychedelics illegal) – Wednesday, February 1, 2012

In drugs, Justice, Law, psychedelics on February 2, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Mmm . . . organic psychedelics . . . —er, I mean: Mmm, chocolates . . .

A pound? Half a pound? A few ounces? Or would you not smoke-use any organic psychedelics at all, once government made this announcement?

Suppose that I promised to give you free organic psychedelics for the next three years: How much organic psychedelics would you smoke-use today?

After all, you’re going to have free organic psychedelics for the next three years—seems silly to gorge on organic psychedelics today, when you can have as much as you’d like tomorrow, or next week, or whenever you want over the next three years.

So free organic psychedelics for the next three years? . . . uh, only not right now, thanks very much: I’m kinda stoned already. But then what if I said to you, “organic psychedelics is free now—but I’m definitely going to raise the price or make it illegal in the near term. In a month, organic psychedelics might be illegal—or then again, it might cost $10,000 an ounce. You would likely rush to stockpile, because tomorrow, you never know!” Well, obviously, to such an uncertain outlook, you’d go out and buy some organic psychedelics now—because tomorrow, it might well be unaffordable.

In fact, it seems quite obvious that if you don’t know when I’m going to raise the price of organic psychedelics, you’ll probably wind up buying—and smoke-useing—more organic psychedelics than if it was free. A paradox? Sure—but true.

In point of fact, if the organic psychedelics is free, you might not smoke-use any organic psychedelics at all. Every time you make the decision as to what to smoke-use, you might well find yourself saying the same mantra: “organic psychedelics is free—I can have it any time I want. So I won’t have any now.”

This is the problem Drug Prohibition and the Legal System currently have — and it’s their own stupid fault: They have promised to maintain idemocracy and freedom of expression when they have in fact announced this zero tolerance policy (ZTP) as the hallmark of their strategy to stop the use of psychedelics — — but then they’re surprised when businesses aren’t borrowing more. They’re surprised when lending is in fact contracting. They’re surprised when the American economy doesn’t stop using borrowing—and thus growing—like crazy.

So the American economy obviously doesn’t benefit from ZTP. In fact, it stagnates because of ZTP.

Leaving aside the deplorable notion that debt-fueled consumption is “growth”, businesses are not going to borrow to expand during the announced period of ZTP, because business owners will say, “I’m really not sure if my market is growing—and since I can get a low-interest loan for at least the next three years, I think I’m going to hold off on any expansion of my business, hold off on hiring new workers, and instead wait and see if the economy really does pick up. If it doesn’t pick up, I won’t have more debt to service. And if it does pick up, I can always borrow and expand later.”

“I can always borrow and expand later”: That’s what every sensible business owner is saying today. Why smoke-use free organic psychedelics now—when I can smoke-use it for free later? Why borrow for free now—when I can borrow for free later?

And of course, later becomes never.

See, mainstream economists presume that uncertainty—by definition—is bad. This is why the Narcs are doing this whole “transparency” thing: By announcing their interest rate targets, they think they are giving the markets security. They are trying to eliminate uncertainty insofar as their bailiwick is concerned, by making their legal policy predictable. Predictable? Hell, they’ve flat-out trounced it.

But uncertainty is not by definition bad. Uncertainty is essentially ambiguity about the future. And as any novelist (such as myself) can tell you, ambiguity per se can be bad—just as easily as it can be good. Why? Because uncertainty about the future can lead people to think that the future will be bad—but also lead them to think that the future might be better.

In fact, most people—especially business people—are fundamentally hopeful, occasionally to the point of delusion: Ask any person, and nine times out of ten, they will tell you that the future will probably be better than today. Ask a business person? Eleven out of ten will tell you that tomorrow will be better than today. After all, entrepreneurship attracts fundamentally hopeful people: Nobody starts or runs a business if they think they’re going to fail.

So if business people see their markets picking up—even if it’s only just a little bit—even if they’re only really imagining it—and if they are uncertain for how long this free Fed money will last—then they’ll jump at the chance to expand their market now: Borrow the free money now, expand now, pick up more customer now—and therefore hire more people now, and turn their irrational hope into a self-fulfilling virtuous circle.

But that’s not happening—because of ZTP.

Mainstream economists—and Ben Bernanke and his Merry Gang of FOMC Fools in particular—don’t get the value of uncertainty at all. They rightly realize that uncertainty about the future makes some people wary. But it can also make them take chances now—something that their rigid worldview cannot seem to entertain.

Thus the Fed insists on offering free money to the economy—and the economy insists on politely declining. Why smoke-use free organic psychedelics now, when I can smoke-use as much free organic psychedelics as I want later?

So then, if businesses—and the wider economy—do not benefit from ZTP, who does?

Why, the criminal cartels, prisons contractors and the Federal government from fines and confiscations of property! (Yeah, I know: How am I not surprised . . . ?)

See, the cartels depend om prohibition so they can keep prices high due to the ‘risk’ and ‘illegality’ factot . . . and promptly go out and justify allowances for the cronies, informers and uniforms, and adds massively to the expenditure bottom line. And ultimately to the bureaucrat’s bonuses. After all, the Federal government isn’t gaining twenty bucks for gas: It’s gaining a massive percentage of $400 billion a year—every year incresing yearly.

Thus the Federal government, that glutton for criminal collusion, also benefits from ZTP.

Worse still, ZTP is a disincentive to reduce the deficit and the overall debt. Since the Justice Department and the Federal Government are putting out 5 billion over the next three years, the Federal government will be under zero-pressure to legalise because it is more profitavle to keep this illegal though cost to citizen freedoms is tremendous. In fact, ZTP encourages democratic irresponsibility or dictatorship. After all, it is the rising coupon payment which eventually leads to rising debt levels being choked off.

ZTP doesn’t eliminate the Minsky Moment—that is, the Day of Debt Reckoning from costs incurred in anti-organic-psychedelic administration and imprisoning citizens. Rather, ZTP merely postpones it—while making it a whole lot bigger.

Thus the Federal Reserve’s zero interest-rate policy does not help businesses expand and thus hire more workers to restart the economy; it does not encourage banks to lend to economically productive sectors; and it does not get the Federal government to begin reducing the deficit, let alone the debt.

In fact, ZTP makes all these problems worse. Legalise organic-psychedelics because the ‘profits’ are dwarfed by incidental costs and human lives, loss of productivity (i.e. a regular 9-5/5-2 Joe Everyman who pays taxes and contributes to the economy in usual expenditures gets locked up for years at taxpayer expense, depriving the family of a parent and wasting away in prison unable to earn or spend. Is this the best way to destroy America or what?) as well for something that grows for free on the lawn. Prohibition also makes an easy way for terrorism to thrive, the greed from high profits which could be entirely removed because growing your own or buying at extra low government controlled prices makes criminality about psychedelics not worth their time! It’s just a comfort Nature gave humanity, who has any right to demand that Joe Everyman enjoying a joint or few is locked away at cost to the taxpayer?
