Paradise lost for Tunku Aziz? — Tay Tian Yan – May 12, 2012

MAY 12 — As widely expected, Tunku Abdul Aziz’s senatorship was not extended by the DAP.

As if that is not enough, he also finds himself coming under scornful assaults and branded a traitor. The disciplinary committee demanded an explanation from him, and some in the party wanted him removed.

Tunku Abdul Aziz joined the DAP three years ago in the midst of widespread cheers, making him the highest positioned and most reputed Malay member the DAP had had since its inception.

He was offered the party’s vice-presidency, and thanks to his popularity, the party experienced unprecedented metamorphosis to become a truly multiracial entity.

The cold treatment accorded to him has stemmed solely from his dissident views on the Berish 3.0 rally.

I have no intention of getting myself embroiled in the rally controversy any more. All that has come to my mind is a story I have read some time ago.

John Milton was a 17th-century English writer, second probably only to William Shakespeare in literary supremacy. His time-honoured epic “Paradise Lost” underscored the fall of humanity in the pursuit of freedom, quoting the chapter in Genesis where Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden.

In “Paradise Lost” there are the Heaven, the Hades; the Angels, the Satan; the Darkness, the Light; the Exaltation, the Decadence.

Wasn’t the April 28 rally a vivid reflection of “Paradise Lost”?

Milton had his own real-life experiences.

He met, fell for and later married 15-year-old Mary Powell at the age of 32.

After their marriage, he discovered they could not actually get along well. His young wife went back to her mother’s house, not returning for the following three years.

He wanted to put an end to the dysfunctional marriage, but was barred from doing so by the Church then.

Out of desperation he penned the famous Divorce Tracts, declaring true matrimony to be a marriage of body and mind, but if the body and mind have become dissociated, people should no longer be bonded by the covenant of marriage as this would contravene human nature and the will of freedom.

As such, he said, everyone should be entitled to the freedom of divorce.

His doctrine could possibly be accepted by people today, but not three centuries ago.

He was suppressed and locked up for his heretical thinking.

Milton was least subdued, instead his ordeal energised him to think profoundly about the true meaning of freedom. In the “Areopagitica” he later published, he proposed the theory of self-rectification of truth, arguing that only with the freedom of speech would truth become more explicit with arguments. The so-called “truth” that has been erected through oppression would never be able to pass the test of time and become the real truth.

At the same time, Milton also advocated the freedom of thought, declaring that no one — be it a regime, political party or individual — has the privilege of scrutinising a person’s freedom of speech or thought on condition it does not pose any harm to other people.

Milton’s freedom of speech has since become the harbinger of democratic politics.

Like anyone else in this world, Tunku Abdul Aziz is entitled to the freedom of speech, and the DAP’s action against him only attests to the democratic qualities and bearings this party holds. — mysinchew.com

Look here, Tay Tianyan, ingenuously fetting DAP’s lack of democracy as democracy! No honest political party will dare to fire anyone for speaking freely. I am very sorry that I ever fetted DAP in the past at all, and realise that nepotistic and term limitless DAP is as bad as, if not worse than BN and BN’s lapdogs. Shame on you Tay Tian Yan for being a blind propagandist without ethics! DAP is a political party that shold be wiped off the map of Malaysia and the world. Anywhere there are people who think and behave like the Lim Kit Siang and Karpal SIngh led party need to be barred for politics. They are self serving political animals in human guise and Tay Tianyan as well. Little wonder the apartheid state of the Chinese and Indians in Malaysia. Neither DAP nor MCA nor MIC have ever spoken against apartheid prioritising their own political safety first. I recommend that all voters vote for 3rd Force parties instead/

How about Tunku lead the 3rd Force and drop these bunch of unethical nepotistic and uninclusive Pakatan losers who steal and parrot ideas instead of giving credit where is due. Have at Pakatan! And BN is an apartheid party so corrupt that the Human Rights Council should be shamed for allowing Malaysia to be a member of the Human Rights panel. Idiot politicians! 3rd Force when are you making your move? get together at some stupid venue and start organising yourselves, we had enough of the term limitless, nepotistic family blocs and selfishness of Pakatan and the racism and corruption of BN!

How about this below social contract?

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)

Hisham lying over parties wanting deaths at Bersih, says Kit Siang – By Shannon Teoh – May 12, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 — Lim Kit Siang accused Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein of “spreading lies” after the home minister alleged that some parties wanted serious injuries and deaths to occur at the April 28 Bersih rally.

The DAP parliamentary leader pointed out that the Umno vice president had dismissed on April 19 the planned sit-in for free and fair elections, saying it was not a security threat and had little traction with the public.

“I urge Hishammuddin to stop spreading lies and falsehoods about Bersih 3.0 as his allegation that some parties wanted serious injuries and deaths is most wild, irresponsible and deplorable.

“If Hishamuddin received ‘intelligence’ that there were ‘some parties’ who wanted serious injuries and deaths to occur at Bersih 3.0, he was then seriously remiss and negligent in his duties as home minister when he publicly declared that Bersih 3.0 rally posed no ‘security threat’,” the Ipoh Timor MP said.

Hishammuddin told students earlier today that his biggest fear ahead of the April 28 rally for free and fair elections was the possibility of serious injuries and fatalities. “I was relieved there were none. But there were some parties who wanted that to happen,” he said over lunch at Sunway Hotel here.

Lim (picture) also said in a press statement that Datuk Seri Najib Razak must also be asked if he had received ‘intelligence’ to back the prime minister’s claim that Bersih 3.0 was an attempted coup d’etat to topple the government.

“Or was the ‘intelligence’ about an attempted coup to topple the government, like Hishammudin’s latest allegation, purely political in nature, concocted after April 28 to enable the Barisan Nasional to demonise the Bersih 3.0 organisers and protestors?” he said.

He added that Putrajaya’s probe into violence during the Bersih rally must be in the form of a royal commission of inquiry instead of the proposed panel headed by Tun Hanif Omar as the former police chief had disqualified himself by making anti-Bersih statements.

The April 28 rally, which saw tens of thousands gather at six different locations before heading to Dataran Merdeka, was peaceful until about 2.30pm when Bersih chief Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan asked the crowd to disperse. But her call was not heard by most of the crowd who persisted around the historic square which the court had already barred to the public over the weekend.

Just before 3pm, some protestors breached the barricade surrounding the landmark, leading police to disperse the crowd with tear gas and water cannons.

Police then continued to pursue the rally-goers down several streets amid chaotic scenes which saw violence from both sides over the next four hours.

Several dozen demonstrators have claimed that they were assaulted by groups of over 10 policemen at a time and visual evidence appears to back their claim but police also point to violence from rally-goers who also attacked a police car.

The police car then crashed into a building before some protestors flipped it on its side.

This looks like a libel lawsuit. Hisham should sue this creep to hell.

Return the favor, Ambiga and Guan Eng: Offer Ibrahim Ali a nice ‘char siew pau’ – by @donplaypuks – Friday, 11 May 2012 19:32

The two demonstrations, one by Perkasa outside Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s house, and the other by Ikhlas oustide Ambiga’s, of Bersih fame, mark a new low in Malaysian politics. The demonstrators, and their yellow backers in the corridors of BUMNO/BN, have appealed to the lowest common denominator among the worst in their ranks – racism, demagoguery and thuggery!

Given also that our law enforcers (not just the police, but also City Hall officials) stood by and did nothing to disperse these illegal gatherings, while at Bersih 3.0 they opened direct fire at crowds with tear gas and pepper-laced water without justifiable provocation, it’s clear what we have is a rogue regime that MUST be booted out at the next general elections, if we wish to preserve the sanctity of our democratic institutions.

Rogue regime

Why rogue regime? Because we have a Prime Minister (PM) who is implicated up to his eyeballs in the $7 billion Scorpene Submarine financial scandal (he was also the Defence Minister who signed the contracts) and who 5 years onwards, has not ordered the Inspector General of Police to investigate, identify and charge the person who gave the orders to murder Altantuya and blow up her body into bits and pieces with C4 plastics, generally available only to the Army, and perhaps, the Terrorist Squad of the Police. PM Najib has not done so despite the convicted murderers of Altantuya confessing to the police that they were offered $100,000 (by whom?) to carry out their heinous act!

This is not mere uncouth behaviour by Perkasa and Ikhlas. Their intention is to instill mafia-type fear through intimidation, thuggery and gangsterism! The gall of it, for Ikhlas to offer a hamburger to Ambiga who is a vegetarian. Imagine if Ambiga or Guan Eng had offered a pork bun to Ibrahim Ali. But that is a minor matter.

What is at issue is whether Perkasa and Ikhlas considered the fear and terror they would have instilled, not in Ambiga’s and Gua Eng’s hearts, for they are made of sterner stuff, but in the hearts of children and the elderly living in those homes and that of their innocent neighbours.

Yes, give Ibrahim Ali a pork bun and see what sort of reaction…

Of course Ikhlas and its petty traders will maintain that the Bersih 3.0 rally on 28th April 2012 caused them huge financial losses and they have their rights. Yes, they have their rights and no one disputes that. However, the courts are the rightful place to take their grievances to, not the homes of their perceived antagonists.

Frankly, I doubt these hamburger patty-mentality lackeys will dare open up their books to be audited independently by the courts to justify any claims.

Similarly, the Opposition in Penang – BUMNO/BN – were defeated in the State Asembly by the very same tactics and open and democratic procedures that they had employed from 1957-2007, when they were in power. Their allegations that Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng had cast slurs on BUMNO/BN by saying that more Hindu temples would be torn down if BUMNO/BN were in power, was not borne out by official Hansard transcripts of the debate in the State Assembly. That calls for an invasion of Guan Eng’s home and incantations of a death wish?

So, how do we read the situation?

It’s obvious they are being stirred up by other cravenly cowards and Nazi and Stalinistic elements within BUMNO/BN. Has the unelected mayor of KL who pontificated to Bersih 3.0 about laws and municipal by-laws or our unelected PM Najib or BUMNO/BN politicians and former IGP’s come out and publicly condemned these blatant and dangerously precedent setting invasions of an individual’s privacy, as they (wrongly) did with Bersih 3.0? They are playing with fire and when it’s they who get burnt, who shall they then lay the blame on?

They silently wish and pray Guan Eng, Ambiga, Bersih and Pakatan would all quietly disappear. Let me assure these pathetic troglodytes that all their pilgrimages and prayers will not deliver them victory because they represent pure, unadulterated evil against the might of Pakatan, Ambiga, Guan Eng et al who stand on the side of the righteous!

BUMNO/BN is also being shown up by the new State governments, in particular, Penang and Selangor, that where the leaders are incorruptible, desirable progress will naturally follow. So, it’s not surprising that the Pakatan states combined have attracted more Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in four years than all the BUMNO/BN ruled States put together, and praised by the BUMNO/BN appointed Auditor General for that as well as for their transparency and accountability.

Now, that’s what you call real progress and achievement – when your are grudgingly congratulated by independent parties for your successes. BUMNO/BN leaders are too seduced by the bootlicking and scrotum tickling antics of its sycophantic and demanding ‘give me a billion ringgit contract’ supporters.

No second thought – just dump BN!

This is what grates on BUMNO/BN’s behind more than anything else, like sandpaper on rock. The Pakatan States have shown in four years what progress we could have achieved, had we not allowed ourselves to succumb to 32 years of financial mayhem and utter corruption and waste involving hundreds of billions of ringgit under the BUMNO/BN aegis.

And if this is the best they can do, by trying to frighten and intimidate the citizenry, then I say, bring it on. You will scare no one, because it is your own fear that motivates you, not any concern for truth, justice or democracy!

The lowest common denominator you appeal to – racism, demagoguery, religious bigotry and thuggery – will be contemptibly rejected by all right thinking citizens, without a second thought!

Hey @dontplaypuks Guan Eng has just lowered himself to that very level by sending a pork bun to a Muslim. If Guan Eng were a gentleman Guan Eng would have prepared a delegation to the UN undeer the CM’s office to challenge APARTHEID. That Guan ENg prefers to send offensive food, makes Guan Eng little more than a sad clown that does not use the CM’s mandate to any good.

We don’t need this sort of leader like Guan Eng. File that lawsuit or send delegations to the UN, NAM or BRICS morons. Why do the Sultans put up with Guan Eng’s cockbaiting of a group like PERKASA? More b.s. that can lead to hegelian eclectic inspired ‘riots’ and then a freeze on social freedoms. Guan Eng is an idiot to play this sort of game. Ibrahim Ali, please take this a man to man insult and give Guan Eng what Guan Eng needs most. A good ass whacking with whatever food item Guan Eng hates.

But since Guan Eng eats sh1t cakes, PERKASA might have a hard time deciding which food item to use against Guan Eng. Serious leaders on all sides, please send that delegation to the UN to end apartheid.

This idiocy involving pork, Guan Eng and PERKASA is just too much of a tragic comedy and a waste of a CM’s mandate. Nepotism and limitless terms breeds char siew bao sending idiocy that does not end the lack of . . .

‘Funeral’ for Guan Eng and burger stall for Ambiga: THIS IS UMNO-BN! – Written by YM CM Lim Guan Eng – Friday, 11 May 2012 12:48

DAP condemns the “burger protest” by pro-BN and anti-Bersih supporters, which set up an illegal burger stall outside Bersih co-chairperson Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan’s house to protest against their claims of purported loss of income suffered due to the Bersih 3.0 rally on 28 April 2012.

Is rule of law in Malaysia now replaced by rule of the jungle?

I fail to understand how DBKL can allow a burger stall to be set up outside a private residence with impunity in Kuala Lumpur?

By failing to act against the “burger protest” set up illegally outside Datuk Ambiga’s house, BN and DBKL is subjecting her to undue harrassment, intimidation and invasion of privacy. Will DBKL allow a similar protest outside the private home of Ministers or the DBKL’s Mayor residence?

Such an act of harrassment, intimidation and invasion of privacy has no place in our peaceful country, where Malaysians live together in mutual harmony and respect.

Moreover, the symbolic act of setting up burger stalls and cooking meat as a protest outside Ambiga’s home is extremely disrespectful considering that the former Bar Council president is a vegetarian.

As Ambiga herself noted yesterday, such acts have “never happened in Malaysia, except to Lim Guan Eng. Now Lim Guan Eng and I have had our homes violated.”

Funeral rite

Yesterday, my own family’s privacy was invaded by a group of Perkasa members who performed a “funeral rite” intruding on my private space, by placing on my gate a garland of flowers over a framed photo of me to signify my “death”.

Clearly this is the first time that such a death “wish” or death “threat” is made against a Chief Minister. What is equally clear is that the police present were indifferent and did not stop the Perkasa members from violating my private space.

It is the right of every Malaysian to be able to protest his or her own issues, but to do so by intruding into personal space and invading the privacy of family homes or wishing for the death of anyone is utterly vile, completely disrespectful and contrary to the basic tenets of democracy.

DAP calls on BN and DBKL to immediately remove the stall outside Datuk Ambiga’s home as a mark of respect towards not only to democracy and rule of law but to establish and uphold civil society.

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

I’d say open up underwear shops and a karang guni or shoe repair as well. Throw in a toddy seller and butcher for good measure as well – just for not speaking on APARTHEID as well as for dumping on rightful  MB of Perak Nizar when Ambiga was Bar Council President.

Bersih fails, nothing was achieved! All that limelight and all Ambiga does is flounder like an unknown blogger with no friends! We don’t need this sort of leader like Ambiga. File that lawsuit or send delegations to the UN, NAM or BRICS to END APARTHEID moron.

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)

What the hell is Lim Guan Eng arguing about a burger stall or respect when Lim Guan Eng should be demanding the END OF APARTHEID? People are earning their liveihood and all DAP wants is to destroy their livelihood or fine people who build awnings and write false news. END APARTHEID! Or give over that CM’s post!

CONTACT UN, CONTACT NAM – END APARTHEID. Or Ambiga should relinquish leadership of Bersih to someone who knows how to wield that ‘riot causing power’ properly! Meanwhile Guan Eng should – CONTACT UN, CONTACT NAM, CONTACT BRICS – END APARTHEID.

Lawyers pour scorn on ‘stupid’ Bar – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Saturday, 12 May 2012 Super Admin

A vocal few criticise the Bar Council for not being apolitical and failing to take note of the violence perpetrated by the protesters during the Bersih 3.0 rally.

(Free Malaysia Today) – Several lawyers have accused the Bar Council of supposedly siding with both Bersih and the opposition.

They argued that the Bar focused only on police brutality and failed to note the violence caused by protesters during the April 28 Bersih 3.0 rally.

Selangor Bar member Abdul Bakar Sidek attacked the Council, calling it a “political group” of the opposition.

“They come here [and] just want to pass a resolution. They just want to talk about police brutality but they never talk about public brutality towards the police!” he told reporters angrily.

This happened minutes after the Bar Council ended its extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on the Bersih 3.0 rally, where they passed a resolution condemning heavy-handed police action on that day.

Abdul Bakar asked why the resolution omitted instances of protester violence.

“I do not agree with police brutality but at the same time we do have to adhere that the police are also victims of the public and the stupid Bersih.

“…I am ashamed to be a member of the Bar, I wish I had an alternative [to the Bar]. I came just to say, ‘Why you need to gather by the roadside like a pariah?’”

“…I wish the government can give us an alternative [to the Bar, because] a lot of my friends do not want to be a member of this stupid Bar!” he shouted.

While he was speaking to reporters, a few lawyers taunted Abdul Bakar, chanting, “Bersih 4!”

In response to this, he said: “You see? Is this a forum of professionals? They want a Bersih 4.0, [but] they are just a bunch of idiots!”

Abdul Bakar later claimed that he had a younger sister, who in her capacity as a policewoman, was attacked by protesters that day.

He also blamed Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga of shoring up publicity in a bid to “create havoc.”

Of the 1,270 Bar members who attended today’s EGM, 939 voted in favour of today’s resolution, while 16 voted against.

The rest either left the venue before the event ended or did not take part in the vote.

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

Selangor Bar member Abdul Bakar Sidek attacked the Council, calling it a “political group” of the opposition.

Does Abdul assent to the below 3 items?

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)

Because if Abdul doesn’t, some Bar Council member might want to demand that foreign University which granted any a degree to have that same degree removed for being a supporter of APARTHEID. But true, marching is stupid. File lawsuits, more so the Bar Council!!!

‘The rest either left the venue before the event ended or did not take part in the vote.’

File lawsuits against the Bar Council committee instead of ‘leaving without voting’! Leaving without voting is irresponsible. In fact a simple 14,000+ letters sent to all members of the Bar Council that will be legally actionable not to respond to should be applied for every single quorum. The 900+ people who voted DO NOT COUNT as they are less than 10% of the Bar! Isn’t there a mailing department the Bar Council could use to send a YES/NO/’Other-pls-state’ form to these 14,000 ‘ponteng’ lawyers or at least ensure 66.6% voted? No need to set up a ‘Bar Academy’ at cost to the Rakyat (more contractor collusion). A simple change in the Bar Council constitution about this sort of mandatory vote (2 week response time at least?) and even mandatory attendance of yearly EGM should be applied. We can’t have this sort of ‘ponteng vote’ or ‘ponteng EGM’ behaviour so that justified waste of tax monies in settying up ‘Bar Academies’ can be tabled in Dewan. Disappointing to know only 900+ out of 14,000 were reacheable! These are the people who write our laws? No wonder Malaysia is getting from bad to worse.

PAS can implement hudud with non-Pakatan parties’ – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Saturday, 12 May 2012 Super Admin

(Malaysiakini) – PAS Ulama chief Harun Taib has said that amending the federal constitution to implement hudud will be its priority even if it means changing political partners, according to a New Straits Times report today.

“We will implement hudud and amend the constitution even if (it is) not with the current partners we have in Pakatan (Rakyat)… Maybe there will be other pacts that will lend us their support,” he was quoted as saying.

However, he did not name the non-Pakatan political parties, if any, which are in favour of hudud.

Harun added that as a party that champions Islam, it must do what is required by the religion, said the report.

According to the daily, Harun added that the implementation of hudud was inevitable should PAS win more seats than its Pakatan Rakyat partners.

“(PAS president) Hadi’s statement on hudud implementation and amending the constitution were done in his capacity as PAS president and they reflected PAS’ aspiration if the opposition wins the general election.”

The comments was in reaction to DAP chairperson Karpal Singh’s criticism of Hadi Awang who had allegedly said the party intends to incorporate hudud as a way of life in the federal constitution.

“I think whether it is against the constitution or not is just his (Karpal’s) personal opinion,” he said.

However, Hadi has denied making the statement.

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

Hudud is apartheid against fellow Malays USING Islam. PAS surely cannot be insisting on COMPULSION which is illegal in Islam! Case by case assent via signed agreements is reaqsonable but by the UNHCR no imposition of Hudud even on Malays is legal. PAS cannot do that without breaking some international treaties which Malaysia is a signmatory of. What IS PAS doing? Why is DAP silent like the grave (no pun intended, though 750K for a single PM and 120K for the same CM’s wife, is not worth selling out the entire minority to ignore ending APARTHEID for.)? Pakatan is a rubbish political party whenever this sort of thing happens. Is PAS trying to get Malaysia kicked out of the Human Rights Council? 3rd Force is the best choice!

As mentioned elsewhere, Hudud can only be applied on a case by case person by person acceptance. This is illegal and should be challenged by democratic Islamic scholars as ‘there can be no compulsion in religion‘ (Quran verse, Al Bakara 2:16). Such fatwas will be issued in a manner that compels. Islam if used as a political tool of control will damn any who do not follow the spirit of the Quran.

Bar Council: Ex-IGP unfit to lead panel – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Saturday, 12 May 2012 Super Admin

The Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee says the former IGP disqualified himself by calling some of the Bersih 3.0 protesters communists.

(Free Malaysia Today) – The Bar Council said former Inspector General of Police Hanif Omar is not suitable to head the independent panel to probe the violence that took place during the Bersih 3.0 rally.

Speaking at a press conference after chairing the Bar Council’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM) today, its president Lim Chee Wee said Hanif had disqualified himself by taking a stand against Bersih 3.0 earlier.

“It’s unfortunate that the former IGP had referred to some of the protesters as communists,” he added.

On April 28, tens of thousands marched in the nation’s capital but the rally was marred with reports of police assaulting scores of protesters and journalists.

Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein announced the formation of the six-member panel on Wednesday with Hanif heading the investigation team.

However, Hanif had reportedly told the media earlier that some of the demonstrators were communists as he claimed to recognise their faces.

Meanwhile, Lim said he was disappointed when Hanif had alleged that the rally was aimed at overthrowing the government.

“In my view, panel member Steve Sim (former Sabah and Sarawak chief justice) is more qualified to head the panel,” he added.

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

What does attacking Hanif Omar do? NOTHING. Attacking a mere Hanif Omar is a sign of pettiness (also a Freudian slip of sorts, cult of prsonality vs. cult of personality indicating prioritsation of ego rather than actual democratic issues) when Bar Council Presidemt Lim Chee Wee could attack the lack of :

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)

;via a formal delegation to UN, NAM, BRICS or even Sunnite Islam’s highest authority, the Al-Azhar Uni at Cairo. The above piece is a sure sign that Lim Chee Wee is NOT Bar Council President material at all, lack of logos but probably quite political minded () rther than impartial. Any blogger full of pathos could attack Hanif Omar or any VIP. Use that undeserved Bar Council Presidnet’s ethos or GTFO of the Bar Council Committee! Bar Council fails with sheer inability to even comprehend rhetoric, much less address DEMOCRACY to at least know the APARTHEID Bar Council President Lim Chee Wee being a minority now lives in! Pitiful and a waste of Bar Council’s mandate! No ‘Justice Baos‘ here, just ‘Char Siew Bao‘ level lawyers unable to address APARTHEID as above suggested but well able to argue about Burger Stalls and defending people like Ambiga who took out rightful MB of Pahang Nizar while in power as former President of Bar Council !

What kind of legal training did these characters receive? ‘Kopi’ degree is it? CONTACT UN, CONTACT NAM – END APARTHEID. One more word about Burger Stalls or Ambiga by the Bar Council and all Malaysians should recommend that the Bar Council’s degrees should be withdrawn for ignoring APARTHEID but making lots of noise about Burgers and Ambiga. Prepare that delegation to END APARTHEID and stop arguing about the ‘of secondary importance’ riots!

The most dangerous drug in the world: ‘Devil’s Breath’ chemical from Colombia can block free will, wipe memory and even kill – By Beth Stebner – PUBLISHED: 22:44 GMT, 12 May 2012 | UPDATED: 13:43 GMT, 13 May 2012

Scopolamine often blown into faces of victims or added to drinks
Within minutes, victims are like ‘zombies’ – coherent, but with no free will
Some victims report emptying bank accounts to robbers or helping them pillage own house
Drug is made from borrachero tree, which is common in Colombia

A hazardous drug that eliminates free will and can wipe the memory of its victims is currently being dealt on the streets of Colombia.

The drug is called scopolamine, but is colloquially known as ‘The Devil’s Breath,’ and is derived from a particular type of tree common to South America.

Stories surrounding the drug are the stuff of urban legends, with some telling horror stories of how people were raped, forced to empty their bank accounts, and even coerced into giving up an organ.

Danger: ‘The Devil’s Breath’ is such a powerful drug that it can remove the capacity for free will
Deadly drug: Scopolamine is made from the Borrachero tree, which blooms with deceptively beautiful white and yellow flowers

VICE’s Ryan Duffy travelled to the country to find out more about the powerful drug. In two segments, he revealed the shocking culture of another Colombian drug world, interviewing those who deal the drug and those who have fallen victim to it.

Demencia Black, a drug dealer in the capital of Bogota, said the drug is frightening for the simplicity in which it can be administered.

He told Vice that Scopolamine can be blown in the face of a passer-by on the street, and within minutes, that person is under the drug’s effect – scopolamine is odourless and tasteless.

‘You can guide them wherever you want,’ he explained. ‘It’s like they’re a child.’

Black said that one gram of Scopolamine is similar to a gram of cocaine, but later called it ‘worse than anthrax.’

In high doses, it is lethal.

It only takes a moment: One drug dealer in Bogota explained how victims are drugged within minutes of exposure

Victims: One Colombian woman said that under the influence of scopolamine, she led a man to her house and helped him ransack it

The drug, he said, turns people into complete zombies and blocks memories from forming. So even after the drug wears off, victims have no recollection as to what happened.

One victim told Vice that a man approached her on the street asking her for directions. Since it was close by, she helped take the man to his destination, and they drank juice together.

‘You can guide them wherever you want. It’s like they’re a child.’

She took the man to her house and helped him gather all of her belongings, including her boyfriend’s cameras and savings.

‘It is painful to have lost money,’ the woman said,’ but I was actually quite lucky.’

According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, the drug – also known as hyoscine – causes the same level of memory loss as diazepam.

In ancient times, the drug was given to the mistresses of dead Colombian leaders – they were told to enter their master’s grave, where they were buried alive.

Devil’s Breath: The drug is odourless and tasteless and can simply be blown in the face of someone on the street; their free will vanishes after being exposed to it

Dangerous: Vice’s Ryan Duffy traveled to the capital of Bogota to find out more about the drug

In modern times, the CIA used the drug as part of Cold War interrogations, with the hope of using it like a truth serum.

However, because of the drug’s chemical makeup, it also induces powerful hallucinations.

The tree common around Colombia, and is called the ‘borrachero’ tree – loosely translated as the ‘get-you-drunk’ tree.

It is said that Colombian mothers warn their children not to fall asleep under the tree, though the leafy green canopies and large yellow and white flowers seem appealing.

Experts are baffled as to why Colombia is riddled with scopolamine-related crimes, but wager much of it has to do with the country’s torn drug-culture past, and on-going civil war.

Unpleasant Postulations about Hyocine use in Airlines or planes (also how terrorists, Korean cults of personality, or Columbine murderers or even Mack the Knife, an early example, mass mindless voters who SOMEHOW vote wrongly instead on on issues, might be trained and brainwashed) :

Airline introduces scopolamine or hyocine into air inside the enclosed plane, as expected who knows most flight stewardesses have been raped no end, with any customers haing theor souls harvested for use (resulting in jet lag). This medical abuse in collusion with airelines (timed release devices installed within air conditioners in homes in hotels, in cars, introduced through office air vents etc..) . . .

‘You can guide them wherever you want,’ he explained. ‘It’s like they’re a child.’

This fact can be applied alongside hidden audio devices that can be turned on or time released to play ‘instructions’. I strongly believe that in certain states this is routinely done against political dissenters, also in apartheid states with access to the technology or chemicals.

Travel in enclosed spaces makes scopolamine poisoning or time released terrorism based on poisoning very easy. While the pilots space out, the plane goes down or the bus or train crashes.

Someone who apparently dabbled alot in spiritual practices that seemed to be I spoke to before once said :

‘I travel seldom and was well rested. One time I did travel by plane years ago, my soul was stolen by this woman . . . I had a nosebleed later . . . and it took sometime to extract the soul portion I lost.’

This is why people respect (fear) medical people in Asia including nurses. Probably this is also how medical people brainwash their ‘followers’ and become ‘politicians’ via access to the chemicals. Or on a longshot who knows even ‘Maid Agencies’ give employers the same drug to ‘control’ their ‘disobedient’ maids with (doubtless more abuse and rapes are never recorded if these classes of drugs are being used, the underground scene among youth for synthetics btw is out of control in some parts so the ‘legitimate’ use to control maids probably is even more rampant . . . )? I again repost the below postulation on what happened in DAP :

Here’s a spiritual theory. Karpal was set up by DAP via spiritual poison or use of scopolamine, and due to injuries and inability to recall chakras Karpal succumbed to manipulation by DAP. Without access to the lower chakras due to paralysis, Karpal was taken over by LKS and LGE not being able to fight back. The occult or medical technique probably is known to PAP, and now is mployed by DAP, most Penangites are under attack and attacking each other, the high density development paradigm of cities does not help, making people into hivelike drones. Hence the possible hero worship of the term limitless nepotists.

The medical professionals especially 3rd world based, are not always on the right path, greed, murder, and selfishness can be seen . . . Try http://peopleagainstopposition.blogspot.com/2011/04/tragedy-at-sekolah-agama-rakyat-al.html and get an idea of how Islam and the medical establishment are possibly at war in Malaysia, some of us neutrals just want to have non-Muslim rights to entertainment, human rights to equality, not be poisoned and ‘prayered’ to ill health by the ‘pious’ . . .

Penang has become a spiritually ill place that will see many of this generation go down as the a$$holes who caused Fukushima (extracted spirits tend to congregate near Nuke plants thinking their flesh body owners are dead, but they are NOT dead so they mistake Nuke plants as the ‘Light’ and gathered together to free the lost with the tsunami and other natural disasters, you see the spirits of the Earth far outnumber Man, and Man when led by plutocrats, term limitless, medical-psyche poisoners tend to offend the entire planet.).

Keep tormenting, nature knows where you live and who you all are . . . the abusers in the medical profession (why do they work housemen so hard and at such long shifts, is that to catch them unawares so that brainwashing can occur in the confines of the hospital, are there ‘black ops’ people in such places indoctrinating?), many temples and ‘places of worship’ are doomed and peopled by evil cultists in Asia. Any country that has national service or even enforces religion without freedom of choice (i.e. Buddhism, Islam) could well be responsible of these human rights abuses.

Superpower nations everywhere with MI6 departments that study this sort of thing, if this postulation is true, please do colonize in the name of Human Rights, there is no life without freedom as the Human  Rights Charter does not clearly state the above as an abuse or easily proves this. To be liberated we of conscience are all ready to turn against those who oppress us.

The refusal to do the bidding of evil minded creeps is clear, this is but a symptom of the sickness of society, this is not created by normal citizens, this is exhibit the symptoms of the ill treatment. Fukushima says so. The 100K+ deaths in Acheh attest, 6 generations for beheading, for this spiritual subjudice! That energy is NOT to be used by the profane and greedy who love money from funeral funds or who sell and spiritually murder fellow citizens in the name of religion. All spiritualists involved are DAMNED. The temples that fell, fell of their own neglect of apartheid against the minorities (the spirits LEFT the temple and the temples were forfeit) interference and presumption to disrupt the course of rightful history. Finally, it would seem that organic psychedelics could counter the effects of the above synthetic medications or even heal the effects of synthetics and should not only be considered for entertainment but more so healing as well.

A warning (no guesses to who), man’s spirituality is far beyond that of three 2700. 2000, 1400 year old egregores fueled by the wickedness of ‘pious’ society there are forces Eons old that are watching . . . the world can choose to be blighted by deserts or relinquish the souls stolen from innocent children, innocent people.

If incorrect, please feel free to debunk. We’d be very happy to know that this is not happening! Finally organic psychedelics appear to be able to counter the synthetic poisons or fortify against. We cannot ‘just trust society’ there must be an independent audit of the medical and psyche establishment, the government itself as well.

BN can win GE battle with money splash, says Dr Ling by Ida Lim May 14, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, May 14 — Barisan Nasional (BN) could win the general elections because of unprecedented spending on the public, Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik told

Chinese newspaper Sin Chew Daily in an interview published today.

“I think BN can still win, because the government is spending money non-stop under different names, and this has never happened before,” he told Sin Chew in an exclusive interview.

Recently, the government has been spending heavily on various schemes to aid the public, including book vouchers for students and Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia (BR1M).

A recent poll showed that the prime minister’s approval rating has surged by 10 per centage points to 69 per cent on the back of an improving economy and the cash handouts of RM500 to low-income households under BR1M.

Pollsters Merdeka Centre found that the prime minister’s support was highest among households earning less than RM1,500 a month at 78 per cent, with four-fifths of  Indians and 74 per cent of Malays also giving Najib the thumbs up.

However Dr Ling (picture) thinks that the effect of the BR1M aid on voters has “long faded”.

The former MCA president acknowledged the perception that Chinese voters did not view BN favourably.

“Generally speaking, Chinese are not good towards BN, but in Perlis there is no other choice (besides BN), (BN) may also lack support in Johor, but not to the point of  losing,” he was quoted as saying by Sin Chew.

Dr Ling said, however, that a failure to keep a supermajority in Parliament would not be a big problem, as he found nothing wrong with the public’s desire for change.

“A lot of things will change, the past example (March 2008) proved that things improved when there was a change, what’s the problem (with change)?”

“I think BN knows what kind of results they will face, they know this is a very hard battle,” he said, stressing that “this time the general elections is very hard and

difficult for BN.”

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

Not unless the voters identify BN’s trick first. Tax money musical chairs. Pass to the voter the money they took from the voter via taxes to make themselves look good, then tax more after they win! Thanks for the idea and warning Dr.Ling, but I think the voters are cleverer than what you think now (and lower those election deposits so that the poorest sweeper can be an MP, we look forward to 99%ter policies, not shameless MPs who ask for 750K funerals (at the Rakyat’s expense) from the same people who put their fathers in Kamunting and not address ENDING APARTHEID . . . ) . . .

Reflections of a world long gone – CERITALAH by Karim Raslan – Tuesday May 15, 2012 – newsdesk@thestar.com.my

Lawyer and diplomat PG Lim shows us she is very much the original lady activist through her colourful memoirs, Kaleidoscope.

WE are not a nation of writers. Malaysians aren’t great diarists or memoirists. Indeed, our collective Malaysian story – our national narrative – has tended to lose out in terms of subtlety, intimacy and diversity precisely because of this weakness.

However, the lawyer and diplomat PG Lim’s memoirs Kaleidoscope provides us with a superb addition to the dominant and at times tiresome, national narrative.

The book also reminds us that history is an accumulation of different stories, perspectives and experiences and that we are diminished as a people if we disregard the diversity at the very core of what it is to be Malaysian.

PG’s account is elegantly written, insightful and deeply felt. In Kaleidoscope, PG reveals a hitherto unknown talent as a story-teller as she weaves the great events of the 20th Century with her own personal triumphs and failures.

It’s also been an eye-opening read for someone such as myself, who’s known PG for nearly 30 years. The book has made me realise that she’s very much the original lady activist – a forerunner to Irene Fernandes, Zainah Anwar and even Teresa Kok – principled, unflinching and always, always on the side of the dispossessed and down-trodden.

Moreover, PG’s shift from activism and opposition politics to national service (she was to be an Ambassador for over nine years in New York, Vienna and Bruxelles) underlines both the high regard with which the establishment viewed her as well as the less divisive nature of politics back in the 60s and 70s.

Indeed PG (along with Tan Sri Dr Aishah Ghani) was one of only two women on the National Consultative Council which was set up by the National Operations Council in the wake of the May 13 riots and the suspension of the Malaysian Parliament.

Born in 1915 in London, the daughter of a prominent Penang-based lawyer, Lim Cheng Ean, and a British Guyana medical student, Rosaline Hoalim, PG grew up amidst great wealth and an enormously supportive family.

She studied at the famous Light Street Convent School before pursuing a law degree in Girton College, Cambridge, in the late 1930s.

PG was to be shaped by both her mother’s independent, strong-willed nature as well as her father’s well-known civic-mindedness (he served on the Straits Settlement Legislative Council alongside Tan Cheng Lok and H.H. Abdoolcader).

Indeed PG’s large posse of over-achieving and good-looking brothers and sisters have left an inedible stamp on Malaysian public life.

Entering legal practice after the Second World War, PG went on to carve a name for herself as a fearless lawyer and a champion for labour rights, at a time when plantation workers in particular were very poorly treated.

These earlier sections of the memoirs are the most illuminating and exciting. PG conjures up the rich, culturally intriguing milieu of Baba Nonya life in pre-War Penang, the uncertainty of the Japanese Occupation (not to mention the gutlessness and perfidy of the retreating British forces), as well as the exuberance of post-Independence life in Kuala Lumpur.

Along with the magisterial roll-out of history, PG also touches on her own personal disappointments. She’s unflinching in this regard as she recounts her two failed marriages: proof that successful women face multiple challenges.

PG never shied away from controversial or difficult cases, from Confrontation-era insurgents being threatened with the death penalty to trade unionists seeking better conditions for workers – there was no cause too big or too small for her.

Indeed, it’s interesting to compare the current trade union activism with the events of the 50s and 60s.

PG’s interests extended way beyond activism. She was a major stalwart of the Art’s Council which, in turn, became the nucleus of Malaysia’s National Art Gallery.

The book reflects her varied interests. She was a voracious reader, she fenced and punted in Cambridge, while also being an active supporter of the arts.

Kaleidoscope provides us with a view of a world that has long disappeared, of a Malaysia that was and could have been.

It reminds us of a time when it was still possible to learn French and Latin in a Malaysian school. Of a time when Malaysia had a Labour Party and when the various races mingled without resentment or reserve.

This was a time when politicians behaved like gentlemen and honest debate was not seen as a form of treason.

Her life and writings are a firm rebuke to the gutter politics that Malaysian public life has descended to. As she writes at the conclusion of Kaleidoscope:

“I remember my father telling me, if you are right in the causes you champion, you should be fearless in pursuing them. I sometimes feel Malaysians are too timid to champion worthy causes. Technology now provides us all with greater opportunities to get our voices heard.”

PG Lim is a great Malaysian: bold, brilliant, principled and utterly human. Her story is an integral part of our national narrative. Read it.

Self promotionary exercises in cynicism, and a glaring neglect of Malaysia’s institutionalized APARTHEID . . .

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

Fore-runner to the floundering Tenagania President Irene Fernandez? Little wonder. PG Lim is no activist and had remained silent about apartheid for DECADES (shying away from the very most important and controversial or difficult case of  – APARTHEID). She sat cynically by as real activists were sabotaged over the last decade by the fundo and psychiatric establishment, had their reputation sabotaged or their privacy invaded and who knows had access to and watched so many illegally obtained clips of these people in their private homes which now still plague the reputations of those sabotaged. Instead of reporting the abuses, sat by quietly and ‘enjoyed the show’ alongside the abusers.

PG Lim however has gotten The Star Paper to fette herself as an activist, and The Star Paper being your typical ‘business minded’ plutocrat favouring main stream paper likely brought up on fear of bankruptcy, decided to do what The Star Paper does best, fette whoever pays. Meanwhile REAL activists continue to suffer while struggling to end apartheid. This is the sickness of society and a glaring exanple of what is wrong with Malaysia’s so-called philanthropists and activists. Selfish and self glorifying.

PG Lim is no activist but would like to appear so. Not a word on apartheid and a plutocrat with cpacity to fund dozens of campaigns for neutral parties to boot but with no real stomach for politics either, having NEVER EVER spoken about APARTHEID. We will not blame PG Lim as the company PG Lim keeps has doubtless coloured PG Lim’s nature. Again as a REAL activist we remind on Malaysia’s lack of :

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)

;and would not sit by silently as PG Lim has, spare no platititudes in  asking voters to not vote for term-limitless, undeomcratic, nepotists, racists and corrupted or plutocrats in BOTH coalitions BN and PR, instead fetting the real grassroots people like 3rd Force political parties or any independent candidates.

Proposed 3rd Force Coalition

PG Lim is a Malaysian ex-Barrister who somehow managed (I’d say INTENTIONALLY, most cynically so as well . . . ) to neglect APARTHEID and live apart from the ‘masses’ : timid, unprincipled and utterly sheep-like. Her non-story is an integral part of our national neglect (of apartheid).

Know this ! The National Consultative Council introduced the much hated and very apartheid New Economic Policy which PG Lim indirectly oversaw the penning of, so guess what that makes an unelected advisory ‘councillor’ PG Lim complicit in? Thats right, (at least after the 15 year period of Special Malay Privileges after thhe Race Riots, in 1976 for not speaking up when the earlier confirmed Reid Commission review was not made) Complicit in enabling APARTHEID. PG Lim could well be charged if the Malaysian Judiciary were not so beholden to racists and UNHCR unaware ( . . . can someone withdraw their degrees already, their apartheid ignoring presence is a legal profession insulting travesty!) with  abetting torts in violation of UNHCR Article 1 in Intenational law and here we have Karim praising PG to the sky. Damn propagandists and their MSM approved straw-women ‘activists’!

Much like Ambiga ex-Bar Council President (and looking increasingly so current Bar President Lim Chee Wee) does not have the intelligence or guts to contact the UN, NAM, BRICS or Al-Azhar University at Cairo to END APARTHEID, a Barrister who ignored APARTHEID to her reputation’s demise confirms the pathetic and selfish true nature of the supposedly trained legal professionals in Malaysia who somehow cannot address APARTHEID (and in general the lack of ‘Exceptionalism’ of female activists in Malaysia who would fight for everything except ENDING APARTHEID).

Read PG’s book with a pinch of salt. This text is a hyped up grayscale ‘whitewash’ (or ‘brownwash’), and is not kaleidoscopic at all. I could think of more ‘colourful’ memoirs to read than this cynical MSM faux-‘Malaysiana’ inspired drivel . . . and ask PG Lim on her views on LGBT, you might actually see more rainbows fade . . . finally, I just lost respect for one more Star reporter.

A free press is essential to democracy — Dennis Ignatius
May 16, 2012

MAY 16 — Marina Mahathir, one of our nation’s most inspiring figures, recently wrote how her article in The Star was spiked for fear of incurring the wrath of the powers that be.

As a columnist for the same newspaper myself, I understand Marina’s angst.

Recently, I submitted an article about democracy in Myanmar. It ran on Monday, May 7. One line was, however, deleted. In referring to Prime Minister Najib Razak’s promise to support the transformation process in that country, I said, “We may not have much to teach them about democracy but we can help in other ways.”

It seemed such a small thing but even such references are now deemed too sensitive.

I thought it was really ironic that here I was writing about democracy in Myanmar, long considered a dictatorship, while being censored in a country that is assumed to be a democracy.

The last article I wrote in response to bizarre allegations in the national press that American and Zionist groups were plotting regime change in Malaysia was spiked with no explanations given.

It seems newspaper editors in Malaysia, at least the ones who don’t behave as government servants, have to constantly play by ear, shutting down criticism when the government is nervous and allowing some measure of it at other times.

Commentators, for their part, quickly learn that it is prudent to write about developments in faraway places than to touch on the issues that really matter at home. And so we wax eloquent on why Nicolas Sarkozy lost the elections or why Barack Obama supports gay marriage instead of the beaten and bloodied demonstrators on the streets of our capital. It’s the journalistic equivalent of Nero fiddling while Rome burns.

Having been brought up on the notion that some issues, particularly those relating to race and religion, are “sensitive” issues, we came to accept a measure of state censorship. There are signs, however, that things are changing. People are less willing to accept such censorship today, particularly as the so-called “sensitive” list has been expanded to include other national issues.

Furthermore, it is quite obvious that the mainstream media has become far too one-sided for the liking of most Malaysians. Perhaps that may account for the gradual decline of newspaper sales in the country.

Our prime minister recently introduced legislation amending the Printing Presses and Publications Act and other repressive laws. He promised that it would lead to greater freedom, including press freedom.

However, it appears that while Parliament may have changed the letter of the law, the spirit of control behind it has survived intact. In quiet and hidden ways, the press continues to be subjected to manipulation and harassment in an effort to drown out dissenting opinions and differing views.

A culture of self-censorship has also emerged where the press learns to anticipate the reaction of the powers that be and acts accordingly. When the press ceases to write “without fear or favour,” to use the title of the late Tan Sri Dr Tan Chee Khoon’s column in The Star, we have truly lost one of the essentials of our democracy.

History tells us that without a free press, truth dies and the lie prevails while mismanagement, corruption and the abuse of power fester in the dark with terrible consequences. As well, it creates an unhealthy environment where rumours and gossip quickly become fact.

Just these past few weeks we have seen how one of the most significant events in our country’s history has been reframed and recast as a communist-inspired coup attempt, as nothing more than mass hooliganism, as something contrary to our religious values.

What about the other side of the story or the personal narratives and firsthand accounts of hundreds of ordinary citizens who were there that day? Is there no space in our national newspapers for their story?

Journalists have a responsibility to capture such events in all its dimensions to help the public understand what took place. If they do not, they will soon find themselves irrelevant to the national conversation on these issues.

History also teaches us that to sustain itself, repression and control, by its very nature, must keep on expanding to be effective. Already we are seeing signs of censorship creep and manipulation — BBC and al Jazeera newscasts edited and an Australian senator’s remarks blatantly distorted.

And then there’re the shocking remarks by our minister of Home Affairs that it is standard operating procedure for the police to smash cameras and harass journalists who cover such public gatherings!

How long will it be before all criticism of government becomes illegal and treasonous?

It is tempting, of course, to blame the editors and journalists for not standing up to censorship but that misses the point.

I have met a number of journalists and editors, including from The Star, and I know them to be honourable men and women who have dedicated their lives to their profession. You cannot be committed to journalism, as they are, and not yearn for the freedom to write, to explore issues, to investigate a lead no matter where it goes. My sense is that they deeply resent the censorship and the constant harassment.

They are forced to make choices that they shouldn’t have to make: To yield in some areas in order to keep at least a modicum of free expression alive in other areas and to compromise or close, to give up or somehow keep hope alive.

The real focus of our indignation should instead be the system of control and manipulation that makes good men and women bow their knee to what their hearts deny, that forces them to choose between their principles and their livelihood, between what they know to be right and the wrong they are often compelled to accept.

It is no secret that our nation now faces many critical challenges; press freedom is one of them. I hope that the voices clamouring for this fundamental right will grow louder in the days ahead. The future of our democracy depends upon it.

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free… it expects what never was and never will be. The People cannot be safe without information. When the press is free… all is safe.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Here we go again with the ‘diversionary tactic’, manipulative MSM. Ignoring apartheid, (more so than ignoring beaten and bloodied demonstrators), IS no less ‘the journalistic equivalent of Nero fiddling while Rome burns’, ‘Diplomatic Corps Dennis’.

Apartheid is the basis of the Malaysian problem, NOT the riots which are a symptom that will keep occuring until Apartheid for the minorities, and religious fascism (lack of religious freedom of choice) for Malays or Muslims, ends. Address the apartheid, extreme religion, corruption, cronyism and nepotism, and all riots will end. Men who are able to write eloquently and at least able to think, should not obfuscate real issues for cynical and self serving ‘people in power’.

‘You killed my best friend.’ Horrific moment police shoot dead man’s dog after responding to 911 call at WRONG address – By Daily Mail Reporter PUBLISHED: 02:25 GMT, 17 April 2012

Audio footage hears owner say to police: ‘What are you doing? I live here’
Had been playing Frisbee with seven-year-old Cisco moments before
Officers had been called to domestic emergency nearby

The dramatic moment a policeman shoots dead a man’s beloved pet dog while responding to an emergency call at the wrong address has been released on the internet.

Footage from the patrol car’s dashboard camera captures the shot ring out milliseconds after the officer shouts: ‘Show me your hands, show me your hands. Get your dog.’

Owner Michael Paxton, 40, can be heard crying out: ‘Don’t shoot my dog. What are you doing, what did you shoot my dog for? What are you doing? I live here.’

Tragic: Michael Paxton,left, says the officer, who responded to the wrong address, startled his dog Cisco, right, which is why he started barking
Shocked: Footage from the police patrol car captures the sound of Michael Paxton’s dog Cisco being shot dead

Shocked: Footage from the police patrol car captures the sound of Michael Paxton’s dog Cisco being shot dead

‘I didn’t know you were here I was just taking him into the yard. Oh my god, I can’t believe you just shot my dog.

‘I need to give him to the vet. What are you doing here?,’ adding ‘thanks for shooting my best friend’, you killed my best friend’.

He then says: ‘Thanks for pulling a gun on me in my own driveway for no reason.’

Boy, 14, ‘was leader of brutal dog fighting ring that left three animals dead’

He says he was playing Frisbee with his seven-year-old Australian cattle dog, Cisco, at his home in Austin, Texas, when a police officer suddenly appeared, drew his weapon and ordered him to put his hands up.

It is understood the police were responding to a domestic abuse call of a man choking a woman and had unknowingly arrived at Paxton’s home after the 911 caller gave the wrong address.

Mr Paxton has launched a Facebook campaign called “Justice for Cisco” in to put pressure on Austin police over dog shooting’.

On the recording uploaded to YouTube, the police officer can be heard explaining his version of events moments after the shooting to a colleague at the scene.

He said: ‘I came round the corner. He [Paxton] walks from behind that tree, I tell him to show me his hands. Dog comes flying out of nowhere, dude, comes straight up at me, jumps at me and I popped it.’

The officer asks several times ‘do you have a girlfriend?’ before telling Mr Paxton the dog should have been on a leash.

Campaign: The Facebook page named Justice For Cisco, which was created yesterday, has had more than 26,000 likes and hundreds of messages of support, outrage and anger

The footage from the police car does not capture footage of the actual events, only the audio.

But since being uploaded yesterday, it has been viewed more than 16,000 times.

Mr Paxton yesterday described the moment he was confronted in his front yard by an officer with his gun drawn.

He said: ‘He had a Taser. He had pepper spray. I don’t understand why, in broad daylight, he pulled a gun on me. I wasn’t running. I wasn’t hiding,’ Paxton told ABCNews.com. ‘I was just saying, “I live here.” I was panicking. I was afraid for my life.’

‘While I was at gunpoint, my dog came from my backyard barking at the officer,’ Paxton wrote on the Facebook page dedicated to Cisco’s cause.

‘I yelled for the officer to not shoot my dog, that he will not bite, but the officer immediately shot and killed my dog right in front of me.’

The Facebook page named Justice For Cisco, which was created yesterday, has had more than 26,000 likes and hundreds of messages of support, outrage and anger.

One person named Todd Hariaczyi said: ‘I cannot begin to imagine your loss. I have had dogs my entire life, and I cannot fathom losing one in such a horrible manner.

‘I am disgusted by the officer’s actions–shoot now, ask later–and his attempt to blame you for the entire ordeal. It’s your property! Of course, your dog is on it. I will refrain from expressing how I feel about him because it’s nothing I can repeat here. I hope you get the justice you deserve.’

Another, named Nick Pound, added: ‘The officer needs to not only be fired, but charged like any other person who would shoot and kill an animal. Felony animal cruelty in most states carries up to 5 years in prison.’

Paxton said Cisco was harmless and had never bitten or attacked anybody before. ‘The only thing that has brought me comfort is the response and outpouring of emotion for him,’ he told ABCNews.com.

Shooter: The Austin Police Department said the officer, pictured, had felt threatened after the dog came at him and barked

‘I’m sure he heard the yelling. He’s a dog. This is his territory. He’s going to be territorial to some extent. To me, it’s pretty typical dog behavior. He’s not a viscious dog. He was a good boy. He was a real good boy.’

The Austin Police Department said the officer felt threatened after the dog charged at him and barked, leaving him with no alternative.

‘Officers have to do everything they can to protect themselves, up to and including the use of deadly force,’ Austin Police Cpl. Anthony Hipolito told ABCNews. com

‘It’s something that we don’t ever want to do. To shoot and kill an animal is very unfortunate and tragic. The officer is distraught and did not want to do it, but at the same time, he had to protect himself.’

Paxton’s neighbors Jesus Rivera and Maria Hernandez told the Digital Texan that they had been fighting and were the ones that the police officer meant to visit.

Here’s what other readers have said. Why not debate this issue live on our message boards.

Wow, shocking that the cop shot the dog with so little warning (when the owner had zero chance to actually grab his dog), and then said “Why didn’t you grab your dog.” Everyone involved is lucky the owner reacted with such calm. I can imagine this might have turned out much worse if someone had shot my dog.

Heres a ‘longshot’ spiritual theory (theory does not mean blind belief, this is a postulation not intended for the psyche establishment or dictator to threaten us thinkers (as opposed to POISONERS) by. Civilised discourse in a free speech respecting country is a democratic right – Malaysia is an economic-faith apartheid country which is very corrupt, with free speech being tolerated unless one goes shouting against ‘political personalities’ on the road by btw) all are welcome to corroborate and counter if inaccurate) based reading of the above. False flag report to kill a dog with. the caller was fake. The dog however was real. the reason for killing the dog was spiritual probably. Instead of keeping people in the dark about spiritual issues and hoping to take advantage of spiritual issues, how about educating about spiritual interactions between man and animal THEN making sure everyone is aware and acts accordingly (i.e. feeding the animal at correct times, walking the animal at correct times, or not allowing animals in certain neighbourhoods?) Educate, not keep in the dark. We did not build society to be sabotaged by people owning animals intent on ENSLAVING citizens (this is probably aided by ‘vaccinations’ to ‘deactivate’ or ‘demature’ or poison into oblivion those portions to prevent maturation of parts of the brain that affirm alpha ‘animal’ status among animals or humans for ‘easier to control populations – BOYCOTT vaccinations but do learn the precepts of – CIVILESSE OBLIGE (I penned this term!!! So wheres my linguistics prize . . . <JK>) – this will be an absolute necessity or society will tear itself apart with all those ‘alphas’ running about.

The modern human person is educated enough to understand strange spiritual concepts like – that ‘chakras’ may or may not follow animals or humans and can get mixed up. So reconsider the way these ‘chakra release’ operations are carried out. CIVILISATION means none of this spiritual barbarism (in this case the animal’s, though shooting would not be viable) and teach people about the why and whens of their supposed pets (slaves imho, there are methods of use for animals as CAGES for their own ‘loose’ chakras, NO ANIMAL CONSENTED, and this can be blamed on high density living conditions perhaps intentionally inflicted upon societies so that low density landed dwellers cam dominate high density landed types and hi-rise dwellers). This is why animals have their tails removed, are castrated or spayed (i.e. neutered) or have their ears ‘pricked’ or are subjected to inbreeding to remove the natural evolutionary instinct, or how human maids and slaves are intentionally killed to sequester their souls to ensure longevity of their former employers. (again postulations, but we all are aware society and the medical establishment are not s warm and fuzzy no?)

We are in fact enslaving several entire species (think Zoos and animals kept in isolation, livestock farming) that could evolve into our equals given a few hundred generations of fostering by humanity instead of this abuse. By these facts, humanity is NOT deserving of stewardship of this planet and needs to focus on SPIRITUAL Education syllabii for humanity with is entirely non-existent as of now and locally features elements of ‘unique’ (unwanted) abuse. There are consensual instances of the same sequestrations, which can be learnt from BDSM and ‘Gor’ culture, that have stabilized many theories and treatments on this issue, though sadly not in a proper educational or health oriented context but rather mostly sexual and entertainment (too often also abuse based) context. Would the WHO and UN prepare a ‘Spiritual Rights Charter of Sentient Lifeforms’ encompassing issues of Qi, Chakra and Ceremonial effects on subconscious that affects chakra as well? We already have intelligence to write such a text, and all kinds of spiritualists and aware persons would use their ‘gifts’ to ensure the rights of everyone including non-humans not yet evolved, are protected.

As of now we also already have the technology to grow the flesh of our favourite food animals, so there will be no more need of killing or waste via unwanted parts. The onus is upon the wealthy to focus on clab grown meat – THEN ensuring all othtr species are allowed to evolve in properly designated reserves.

All of the above does not preclude equal distribution of wealth and land WITH free choice in labour participation, free education, and free basic housing and staple food at least -WHILE ensuring complete equality with no element of apartheid and social disenfranchisement via bad or abusive laws.

Woman faces death penalty for witchcraft after ‘casting spell on 13-year-old shopper’ – PUBLISHED: 09:24 GMT, 19 April 2012 | UPDATED: 09:41 GMT, 19 April 2012

Saudi Arabia beheads sorcerers, says lawyer

Accused of witchcraft: A Sri Lankan woman faces being beheaded after allegedly casting a spell on a 13-year-old girl during a shopping trip in Saudi Arabia (file picture)

A Sri Lankan woman has been arrested on suspicion of casting a spell on a 13-year-old girl on a shopping trip in Saudi Arabia.

She may face the death penalty as the Middle Eastern country is known to behead convicted sorcerers.

Police spokesman Mesfir al-Juayed confirmed yesterday that details of the woman’s arrest published in local media were correct.

The daily Okaz reported that a Saudi man had complained his daughter had ‘suddenly started acting in an abnormal way and that happened after she came close to the Sri Lankan woman’ in a large shopping mall in the port city of Jeddah.

‘He reported her to the security forces, asking for her arrest and the specialised units dealt with the situation swiftly and succeeded in arresting her,’ Okaz said.

Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally, is an absolute monarchy that has no written criminal code and where court rulings are based on judges’ interpretation of Islamic Sharia law.

In December, Amnesty International condemned the beheading of a woman in Saudi Arabia convicted on charges of ‘sorcery and witchcraft’ saying it underlined the urgent need to end executions in the kingdom.

Amnesty said the execution was the second of its kind last year.

A Sudanese national was beheaded in the Saudi city of Medina in September after being convicted on sorcery charges, according to the London-based group.

Satellite based neurotech can be used to CONTROL literally ANY person. Logically and conceivably, via particulate nano-size devices introduced in our food. Note Gaddafi’s rant on Nescafe and mind control. Perhaps even something as simple as coloidal gold which can get embedded in the brain to be later activated by ELFs and EMFs that can be used to ‘activate’ certain portions of the brain at a push of a button (brain is electrical, so activate the impulses in certain pre-recorded sequences – each person has unique electrical activity and sometime to record will be needed – you get a human marionette).

If spiritual, no harm occurred, the woman should be warned, and let off then watched at most if such a thing can be done, killing her is excessive. If neurotech, the Middle East needs to prohibit this sort of device from being used by citizens, even then killing this woman is still excessive. Perhaps a code of ethics should be applied upon all ‘sorcerors’ alongside proper education for non-sorcerors on how to protect/conduct themselves? If the way the child was controlled was neurotech based, then make all neurotech as illegal to own as drugs, neurotech can create assassins or cause ‘Columbine Killings’. Otherwise this is a false flag accusation to kill a political enemy or who knows a closet feminist (in patriarchial Islam, feminism is sort of an offense.).

Now Gaddafi blames hallucinogenic pills mixed with Nescafe and bin Laden for uprisings… before ordering bloody hit on a mosque – by David Williams In London and Sam Greenhill In Benghazi – UPDATED: 10:40 GMT, 25 February 2011

Wealthy: Muammar Gaddafi has had 40 years to squirrel away his estimated £60bn fortune

Rant: Muammar Gaddafi followed up his bizarre speech from a bombed-out building two days ago, pictured, with a call to Libyan state TV blaming Bin Laden and hallucinogens for the uprising

Colonel Gaddafi was preparing last night for a blood-soaked final stand in Tripoli.

Thousands of hired fighters were massing on roads from the capital to join army units battling the uprising which had spread to within 30 miles of the dictator’s stronghold.

Fighting raged as Gaddafi made an extraordinary rambling speech on TV in which he compared himself to the Queen and blamed the revolt on Osama Bin Laden.

He claimed the protesters who have seized control of much of the east of the country he has ruled for 41 years were fuelled by milk and Nescafe spiked with hallucinogenic drugs.

In a bizarre message to protesters, he said: ‘You need to listen to your parents. If people disobey their parents they end up destroying the country.

‘The same as in Britain (where) for 57 years the Queen has been ruling. I have been in the same situation.’

He went on: ‘Bin Laden … this is the enemy who is manipulating the people. Do not be swayed by Bin Laden.’

Yesterday an unsubstantiated rumour that Gaddafi had been shot swept the oil markets.

CNBC reported the rumour this afternoon, claiming it was partially responsible for driving oil prices back down to $97 a barrel.

Oil had hit a high of $120 a barrel late yesterday afternoon, but settled at $97 on the rumour and on Saudi Arabia’s claim that it can counter any supply disruptions from Libya.

A U.S. official told CNBC that Washington has no reason to believe Gaddafi is dead.

There is no information on where the rumour came from and no news reports substantiating it. Reuters was also reporting the rumour as unconfirmed.

Gaddafi’s former long-time ally and justice minister Mustapha Abdeljalil predicted yesterday that the Libyan leader would follow in Adolf Hitler’s footsteps by killing himself rather than give up power.

Mosque massacre: Ten protesters were killed by Gaddafi’s men in Zawiyah

Mr Abdeljalil, who resigned on Wednesday in protest at the bloody crackdown, said he expected Gaddafi to make good on his pledge to die on Libyan soil rather than slink into exile.

‘Gaddafi’s time is up,’ he said. ‘He is going to go like Hitler. He is going to commit suicide.’

As the death toll passed 2,000 with an estimated 300,000 refugees on the move, dozens more anti-government supporters were reported to have been killed and wounded in a series of counter-attacks yesterday by the army.

Dissident militias supported by defecting military units claimed to have the upper hand in a swathe stretching from the Egyptian border to the outskirts of Tripoli.

In the latest blow to the Libyan leader, a cousin who was one of his closest aides, Ahmed Gadhaf al-Dam, announced that he has defected to Egypt in protest against the regime’s bloody crackdown against the uprising.

He denounced what he called ‘grave violations to human rights and human and international laws’.

Many of those violations were said to be continuing in Tripoli, a city of some two million, where pro-Gaddafi militia have clamped down since the Libyan leader called on his supporters to take back the streets.

Residents say militia roam the main avenues, firing in the air, while neighbourhood groups have barricaded side streets trying to keep the fighters out.

At the same time, members of the feared internal security force run by Gaddafi’s brother-in-law, Abdullah Senussi, have launched raids on homes around the city.

A resident in the Ben Ashour district said vehicles full of armed men swept in on Wednesday night, broke into his neighbour’s home and dragged out a family friend as women in the house screamed. He said other similar raids had taken place yesterday in other districts.

In Zawiya, 30 miles west of Tripoli, an army unit attacked a mosque where regime opponents had been camped for days. The soldiers opened fire with automatic weapons and hit the minaret with an anti-aircraft gun. A doctor at a field clinic set up at the mosque said he saw ten bodies, shot in the head and chest, as well as around 150 wounded.

The witness said that a day earlier an envoy from Gaddafi had come to the city and warned protesters: ‘Either leave or you will see a massacre.’

Zawiya is a key city near an oil port and refineries. Despite the assault, thousands massed in the main Martyrs Square by the mosque, shouting ‘leave, leave’ to Gaddafi, the witness said. ‘People came to send a clear message: We are not afraid of death or your bullets.’

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jeffrey Holland Mormon Church Elder

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

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

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

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

Park Romney’s criticisms of the church are fundamental.

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

The church was founded in the 1820s in New York State before moving to Utah in 1860

The church is estimated to have 14 million followers and to be worth $30bn (£18.9bn)
A recent poll said one in four Americans would be less likely to vote for a Mormon candidate

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

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

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

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

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

Mitt Romney’s biographer, Scott Helman, agrees.

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

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

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

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

Park claims this has happened to him.

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

“Their doctrine, their protocol and their culture as enforced by bishops encourages the families to disassociate themselves from the apostate.”

Mormon Church elder Jeffrey Holland denies shunning occurs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

“But we are 14 million and growing.”

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

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

The Word of Wisdom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Will the Next President Drink Coffee?

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

Does Mitt Romney drink coffee?

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

Separate but Together

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

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

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

Example of helpful medical implants used as instruments of control by the psychiatric and fundo religious establishment.

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

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

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

A New Name for a Jewish Bonesman

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

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

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

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

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

Long Devil Takes The Lead

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

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

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

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

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

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

Christianity to Vanish and Shrink

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Joining Hands with Mr. Chappaquiddick, Ted Kennedy

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

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

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

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

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

The Lubavitchers and Kerry

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

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

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

Association of Jewish Legislators.

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

Christians to Have Heads Chopped Off

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ARTICLE 4

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

RELIGION IN AMERICA:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PROTESTANTS:

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

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

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

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

CATHOLICS AND RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS:

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

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

JEWISH FAITHS:

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

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

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

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

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

ALTERNATIVE RELIGIONS:

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

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

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

WHAT IS A CULT?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE ANTI-CULT MOVEMENT:

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

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

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

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

CHURCH OF CHRIST, SCIENTIST:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES:

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

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

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

Number of European criminals in British jails DOUBLED in last ten years… with 12% of all prisoners now from outside the UK

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 15:31 GMT, 10 March 2012 | UPDATED: 15:37 GMT, 10 March 2012

The last decade has seen the number of foreign offenders locked up every year in English prisons more than double, with only a few actually completing their full sentences.

With the majority of them guilty of serious crimes, receiving sentences of four years or more.

Official figures show the number of European offenders sent to jail for violent or sexual offences has tripled in recent years.

English prisons are seeing a large increase in criminals from EU countries, new official statistics have revealed

Despite there being a scheme in place to repatriate foreign offenders for some time, only 10 have been sent back in the last few months under existing arrangements.

The statistics were uncovered in parliament by Lib Dem MP Martin Horwood, who sits on his party’s international affairs committee.

Horwood said that Britain could save millions by returning offenders to their home countries under the new scheme. The cost of keeping one prisoner locked up for a year is more than £30,000.

Mr Horwood told the Daily Telegraph said: ‘This represents a staggering cost to the British taxpayer for looking after prisoners from other European Union countries who are in the UK.

‘I think the Government should certainly not be contemplating opting out of the one EU-wide scheme which gives us the possibility of sending these prisoners home to serve sentences in their own country.’

The prison population in England and Wales is at 98 per cent capacity, affecting jails like HMP Pentonville in London

Last month the prison population in England and Wales reached 98 per cent capacity – a figure of 57,583.

Offenders from the European Union make up more than four per cent of the total.

Foreign nationals make up 12 per cent of the total prison population, with most coming from Poland, Jamaica and Ireland.

The number of EU nationals in English jails is 2,696, 10 years ago that number was less than half that – 1,321.

The biggest increases were in violence against the person (196 to 610), sexual offences (75 to 348).

Drug offences have actually fallen slightly in the last 10 years, from 524 in 2002 to 441 in 2011.

Last year 949 EU nationals were sentenced to four years or more, with a further 772 given prison sentences of between one and four years.

You might be interested to learn that 30 seconds research show that the proportions in other countries are:- France 20%, Germany 26%, Spain 35%, Italy 37%, Sweden 28%, Norway 32%, Austrailia 20%.

Stoned to death for being an emo: NINETY Iraqi students killed for having ‘strange hair and tight clothes’

Number of deaths could be even higher
Cleric calls the stonings ‘an act of terrorism’
Ministry of Interior ‘complicit’ in the killings

By Paul Milligan PUBLISHED: 10:55 GMT, 10 March 2012 | UPDATED: 18:59 GMT, 10 March 2012

More than 90 Iraqi students have been stoned to death for their Emo haircuts by religious extremists in Baghdad in the past month after Iraq’s  interior ministry dubbed it ‘devil worshipping’.

Iraq’s Moral Police released a statement on the interior ministry’s website condemning the ’emo phenomenon’ among Iraqi youth, declaring its intent to ‘eliminate’ the trend.

The move is part of a wider clampdown on young people taking on what government officials call ‘Western appearances’ in Iraq.

‘The Emo phenomenon or devil worshipping is being followed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate (the phenomenon) as soon as possible since it’s detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger,’ the statement read.

‘They wear strange, tight clothes that have pictures on them such as skulls and use stationary that are shaped as skulls. They also wear rings on their noses and tongues, and do other strange activities.’

Since the statement was published religious extremists have been harassing and killing teenagers with ‘strange’ or ’emo’ appearances.

A group of armed men dressed in civilian clothing led dozens of teenagers to secluded areas a few days ago, stoned them to death, and then disposed their bodies in garbage dumpsters across the capital, according to activists, activists told the Cairo-based al-Akhbar website.

The armed men are said to belong to ‘one of the most extremist religious groups’ in Iraq.

‘First they throw concrete blocks at the boy’s arms, then at his legs, then the final blow is to his head, and if he is not dead then, they start all over again,’ one person who managed to escape told Al-Akhbar.

Iraq’s moral police was granted approval by the Ministry of Education to enter Baghdad schools and pinpoint students with such appearances, according to the interior ministry’s statement.

The exact death toll remains unclear, but Hana al-Bayaty of Brussels Tribunal, an NGO dealing with Iraqi issues, said the current figure ranges ‘between 90 and 100.’

‘What’s most disturbing about this is that they’re so young,’ she said.
This ’emo’ youth was one of nearly 100 who were targeted for having a western hairstyle or wearing ‘American jeans’

Al-Bayaty said the killings appear to have been carried out by extremist Shia militias in mostly poor Shia neighborhoods and said she suspected ‘there’s complicity of the Ministry of Interior in the killings.’

Photos of the victims were released on Facebook, causing panic and fear among Iraqi students.
WHAT IS EMO?

Described as both a cult and sect, it’s name derives from the word ‘emotional’

Its teen followers dress in black, favouring tight jeans, T-shirts, studded belts and sneakers or skater shoes.

Hair is often dyed black and straightened, and worn in a long fringe brushed to one side of the face.

Music also plays a critical role, Emos like guitar-based rock with emotional lyrics – bands such as My Chemical Romance, Jimmy Eat World, and Dashboard Confessional are particular favourites.

They regard themselves as a cool, young sub-set of the Goths.

With the trend comes accusations of self-harming and suicide – something its followers strongly deny.

A young man with long hair was among those fearful at the  government-ordained harassment of teenagers with Western appearances.

‘I have long hair but that doesn’t mean I’m an Emo. I’m not less of a man if I have long hair. Let’s not say that if I have long hair, I’m a homosexual, but I have long hair because this is my style, this is me,’ he told Iraq’s Al-Sharqiya television network.

Safiyyah al-Suhail, an MP, said on Thursday that ‘some students have been recently arrested because they were wearing American jeans or had Western haircuts.’

The interior ministry has not disclosed the number of teenage victims, but released a follow-up statement on Thursday warning extremists ‘not to step on public freedom of Iraqis.’

News of the gruesome deaths drew a stern reaction from Iraq’s prominent Shia cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who criticised the stoning of the young men as ‘an act of terrorism.’

He added: ‘The Ministry of Interior took this situation very seriously and received an approval from the Ministry of Education to set a plan under my full supervision and to allow us to enter schools in the capital.’

‘There are some cases of the spread of this phenomenon specifically among schools in Baghdad, but we are facing great difficulty in the lack of women on the force who would allow us to carry the investigation more accurately since the phenomenon is more popular among girls between the ages of 14 and 18.’

Clegg wants ‘tycoon tax’ to trap rich who pay less than 20% with fury raging over child benefit axe – By James Chapman – UPDATED: 11:44 GMT, 10 March 2012

Crackdown: Nick Clegg last night called for a ‘tycoon tax’ to address the problem of tax evasion by the nation’s highest earners

Nick Clegg last night called for a ‘tycoon tax’ that would force the rich to pay a minimum rate and tackle the problem of tax avoidance.

The Deputy Prime Minister said it was unfair that while ordinary Britons were paying 30 or 40 per cent, hundreds of millionaires were getting away with sacrificing less than 20 per cent of their income by using an ‘army of lawyers and accountants’.

He said he would be willing to support the scrapping of the 50p top rate of income tax – a key demand of senior Tories – as long as millionaires are ‘properly’ taxed in Britain.

Mr Clegg said the wealthy used a wide array of tax loopholes and reliefs, which are inaccessible to ordinary workers, to reduce their bills. It means they often pay lower rates on annual earnings than those on much lower wages.

The Lib Dem leader yesterday repeated to his party that ‘the wealthy have to pay more’, as Government plans to remove child benefit from the better-off came under fierce attack as a measure that would undermine marriage.

Mr Clegg, speaking on the opening day of his party’s spring conference, insisted austerity measures must be targeted at the wealthy – with tax relief on their pensions also in the Government’s sights.

But in an interview, he turned his attention to the issue of tax avoidance. He said thousands of millionaires pay tax at a rate of less than 30 per cent, depriving the Exchequer of hundreds of millions of pounds a year.

Mr Clegg said he was arguing in government for a specific minimum rate of tax to be written into law to ensure people are ‘paying their fair share’ and not ‘massaging’ the system.

He said he decided on the need for a tycoon tax after Mitt Romney, who is expected to be the U.S. Republican presidential candidate, disclosed he was paying just 13.9 per cent tax on his multi-million dollar earnings.

George Osborne insists it is ‘fair’ to ask high-income families to share the burden of cutting Britain’s debt by removing their child benefit

He said: ‘You hope that kind of thing doesn’t go on in this country. So I looked into it. There are hundreds of people earning millions per year who are barely paying 20 per cent tax, forget 40 per cent, forget 50 per cent, forget 30 per cent. They are not even paying 20 per cent.

‘Therefore, I think it’s time that we look at what I call a tycoon tax. If you’re earning millions per year, if you’re able to pay an army of lawyers and accountants to basically pick and choose what tax you are paying, if you are paying as low as 25, 20 per cent or even less in tax, there should be a minimum fair share that you should pay to society.’

He told the Daily Telegraph: ‘It makes people so incredibly angry when you are getting up early in the morning, working really hard to try and do the right thing for your family and for your community, you are paying your taxes and then you see people literally in a different galaxy who are paying extraordinarily low rates of tax.’

Mr Clegg said he was undecided on a figure for the minimum rate. However, it is understood it could be set between 20 and 30 per cent.

Supporter: David Cameron has backed same-sex marriages

A big increase in the tax-free allowance for 23million basic rate taxpayers will be the centrepiece of this month’s Budget, but there are rare signs of tension between Downing Street and the Treasury over how far ‘wealth taxes’, which would help pay for the move, should go.

However, Danny Alexander revealed that he was close to agreeing proposals with the Chancellor, George Osborne, to go ‘further and faster’ towards removing low earners from tax. In an interview in today’s Independent the Chief Secretary to the Treasury said that raising the tax threshold ‘is our priority’.

At the last budget, Mr Osborne said the personal tax allowance would rise by £630 to £8,105 this April. The coalition has pledged as a long-term goal raising the income tax threshold to £10,000, which would enable some 2.2 million people to stop paying tax.

And Mr Alexander told The Independent that the Lib Dems would pledge to further raise the allowance to £12,000 in their next election manifesto, meaning that no one working full-time on the minimum wage would pay tax.

Meanwhile pressure on the Chancellor increased as a thinktank set up by Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith shredded his proposal to remove child benefit from higher-rate taxpayers from next year.

Family stability will suffer a further blow if the Government presses ahead with its plans, the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) warned in a report.

Couples will be deterred from marrying or cohabiting and there will be a greater risk of fraud in the benefits system, which already costs the country £1.8billion a year, it said.

Single mothers will be particularly hard hit because they will be worse off if they marry or move in with a high-earning man.

Treasury sources have insisted that the proposal to remove child benefit from families where one parent earns £42,745 a year or more is, in fact, ‘very popular’, though they are working on ways to soften its impact.

The Government says it will save £2.5billion a year by starting to means-test child benefit, traditionally paid to all families regardless of income.
BOOST FOR MIDDLE-CLASS FAMILIES

Middle Britain will benefit most from Government plans to increase the income tax allowance to £10,000, economists say.

Households with incomes of around £40,000 will be the biggest winners, since they tend to have two earners rather than one who will enjoy the maximum benefit of new tax breaks, according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies.

All 23million basic rate taxpayers will benefit from plans to increase the amount that can be earned tax-free. A big increase in the tax-free allowance, to around £8,400, is expected to be at the heart of the Budget this month.

However, if the move is paid for by holding down the higher rate tax allowance – currently just under £43,000 – more people will be pulled into the upper band as a result.

The Coalition says it wants to increase the allowance to £10,000 by the time of the 2015 election.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said last night he wanted to see that ‘the largest amount of money by far, if you are delivering tax cuts, is spent on getting people on low pay out of paying income tax’.

Labour’s Treasury spokesman Rachel Reeves said: ‘An increase in the personal allowance is better than doing nothing.

‘But a temporary VAT cut would help pensioners and others on low incomes who don’t pay income tax.’

Our MPs would be well advised to put as much effort into ensuring that tax revenue is spent wisely as they do in dreaming up new ways to tax us. Instead we hear constant stories of money being wasted left, right and centre. Millions spent on the development of computer systems that either fail to materialise or end up being scrapped. Millions spent on aid to countries that can easily support themselves. Millions spent on unions reps who do nothing. Millions spent on relocation bonuses to those MPs who can’t manage to get re-elected. It seems to me that the only way to put a stop to this wastage is to remove the temptation. If the wastage was dealt with then the need extract ever larger sums from the populous would abate and our leaders would find that lifting the tax thresholds would be a simpler matter. Attempting to generate a higher tax take without dealing with the underlying problems just means that the wastage increases, something of a vicious circle.

Here’s an original idea; EVERYONE pay 10% tax. No matter who they are. Across the board. Same for businesses. I guarantee it will bring more revenue for the coffers than anything Cloggy and scameroon can think up. No inheritance tax- we all already paid the taxes, no capital gains tax, just that 10% on what you earned from the capital invested as part of your annual income. It completely simplifies the tax system, doing away with the legions of taxmen we have at the moment and it would so encourage business, enterprise and the workforce that everyone would be quite happy to pay it. Probably the lowest tax system in the developed world. But I suppose it would never be implimented. Politicians like to think they are being generous with our money…..

All very well prancing around and sounding off about a mansion tax. Who is going to value the properties and how often? How much are all the valuations going to cost? Will the effect be to drive wealthy people overseas so that then the government gets next to nothing? Clegg just wants to get points with his own back benchers for some class hatred. Will the valuations be reviewed and how often? And is any account to be taken of the age of the occupants, the purchase price when they first bought it? Otherwise there will be some real cases of injustice. A million quid barely buys a shoebox in some parts of London. And before there are exorbitant demands on home owners for tax every year are there going to be exceptions for those unable to pay – pensioners, people who had money once and now have very little due to bereavements or loss of employment? This all sounds like the Poll Tax all over again – a brilliant wheeze but no one has thought it through.

The rich do not need any benefits. In fact class distinctions between middle and upper (lower and middle even) when uncertain (regardless of wealth – y’see wealth does not make class, it is a certain ethos adnd pathos that determines who is classed as what) will depend on who SHAMELESSLY takes benefits.

Example here – 2 people of same wealth (won’t say how much) both claiming to be upper or middle. REGARDLSS OF WEALTH – the real middle class society type will be typified by a sense of principles and pride that is expressed in refusing to take benefits, and the upper class even GIVE benefits (via philanthropy) rather than take benefits. Guess English principles stayed lost after the colonial era eh? Anyone who can push Opium or Colonize and subjugate the really quite alright Indians (they don’t try to convert people and generally are tolerant of general weirdness) can’t claim any ethical compass . . .

Channel 4 search for ‘fresh meat’ forced me off Countdown, reveals Carol Vorderman – PUBLISHED: 01:53 GMT, 11 March 2012 | UPDATED: 01:54 GMT, 11 March 2012

TV trauma: Carol Vorderman left Countdown after 26 years

Carol Vorderman has claimed  she was forced off Countdown after 26 years because Channel 4 bosses were looking for ‘fresh meat’.

The former co-host of one of TV’s longest-running quiz shows waded into the debate about older women on air in a candid interview with Piers Morgan for his Life Stories series. She revealed she has not watched the show since she left in 2008. Ms Vorderman, 51, also  said she was bitter that Channel 4 bosses have never invited her  back, even as a guest.

She said: ‘To me, it is like a bereavement as I was always terribly loyal to Countdown and I protected it. It was more than half my adult life.’ She recalled the last show that her co-host Richard Whiteley recorded, in which he inexplicably said: ‘Welcome to the final Countdown.’ In another eerie twist, the last conundrum of that episode spelt ‘lifefails’.

Mr Whiteley died in 2005 from septicaemia, which he contracted after emergency heart surgery.

Ms Vorderman said she ‘loved’ him and never argued with him in their 23-year TV partnership.

At the time of Ms Vorderman’s departure from Countdown, it was reported that the Cambridge maths graduate left because she refused  to take a 90 per cent cut in her £1.2 million annual salary.

But Miss Vorderman said: ‘I agreed for them to take a third  off my wages, or even halve them, but once new bosses came on to  the show they wanted fresh meat.’

Ms Vorderman’s interview is likely to be broadcast in the next few weeks.

2.5 decades is Mubarak-esque/Gaddafi-esque/Abdullah Saleh-esque term limitless in feel. Vorderman should be happy they took her off before she looks like the female version of the ‘Evil Math-magician’. Also Vordermans’ fans would be happy to remember Vorderman in the prime of health rather than aged. It’s better for everyone and especially Vorderman who can retire and enjoy a probably many many times more than 401K retirement. Finally, how the hell is a Math programme host supposed to be allowed to earn 10s of millions anyway? Ridiculous! Blah to 1%ters! Good sense of democracy going on here! Vorderman has become a plutocrat, and in this day and age of even honourably serving military officers (some badly injured) becoming bankrupt and homeless on the street, this sort of citizen speaks very badly about USA’s priorities.

Nothing against Voderman but this extreme salary is just wrong. Once any person reaches 401K or depending on the social position lets say 10 times 401K, it’s time they stood aside for others to earn a living. Asset hogs are a blight on wealth distribution and at a 10 times 401K quantum, any ‘axings’ cannot be considered Marxism, especially when there are wars going on and trhe country is so heavily in debt that bankruptcy is already in effect but not formalized. What business does a Math Programme Hostess have in holding such wealth?!? Any hostesses should only retire at upper class, or ‘lower rich non-working class’ wealth levels at most. Kudos to ‘Channel 4’ and ‘Countdown’ .

Next, media establishments should consider a ‘give back’ paradigm that perhaps returns anything beyond a 300% profit reserved above the total overhead to the society (one can imagine how many 1000s of percent turn over can be for some media outfits, those mogul or star types should not sequester far too much either, say 50 times of 401K at most perhaps should be fair? Society is fractured when veteran soldiers beg on the street while porn stars drink 50K bottles of champagne every night . . . ). Sequestration of wealth by media owners and stockholders should not take away wealth from society as well. This should be optional of course, but considered a ‘best practice’  and ‘people friendly media’ status for countries with extreme debt especially.

Students from a school in Bandar Sri Damansara, Selangor who will be sitting for the SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) examination, which starts tomorrow, have been without their textbooks for over two weeks. The students were required to return their textbooks a fortnight ago as the school authorities had claimed that the teachers would be too busy during the exam to ensure the return of the books. As a parent, I am upset with the school for demanding the return of the books as surely students would need to revise and look up facts for a major public exam like the SPM. The reason given for the return of the textbooks was, to say the least, unreasonable and self-centred.
Obviously, the schools want to get back the books early so that there will be less paperwork. Teachers find this procedure convenient for them. Now my son has to surf the Internet for vital information as he cannot consult his textbooks which to him and fellow students are badly needed either for reference or revision. Is the measure taken merely for the convenience of schools at a time when teachers are in the holiday mood? Is it a policy made by schools or is it a directive from the Education Ministry? All told, it is a silly, irrational step.
One does not have to be a genius to determine that textbooks can be returned a few days before the school holiday starts or during the week of the exam. Why can’t this be done in the interests of students and not for the convenience of schools or the Ministry which will probably want to know the status of the returned textbooks? We keep talking about Vision 2020, but we do not seem to have the mentality to move forward. The Education Ministry seems to be making decisions without reflecting over the consequences. – Kenny

This case is quite similar to the below : 2 Articles On Possible Mass Attempts on Theft of Soul/Spirit (late May 2011)
Here is how soul theft works *IF* this was an attempt. The taking back of the textbook attempts to steal the Chakra of Mind which considers the textbook as part of itself. This chakra of the student follows the textbook and gets STOLEN by the Ministry of Education then given to mediocre students of ‘a certain race’. That is why you have students of a  tender or at least fairly young age committing suicide out of the soul loss, the soul has followed the original textbook and since mentally the child understands that their future depends on education and by extension the textbook – when the texbook is traken away their soul is also taken with the textbook, or in Foxconn’s case workers who are purposely overworked that their soul becomes tied up in the machinery at the factory and becomes so fearful the physical form is sacrificed so that the soul can escape. If not simply neurotech actions from satellite cell tech ordering the suicides of course.
The stronger ones return to the original owners on their own to their owners, the weaker ones do not. In extreme cases, death can result. Buy your own textbooks or photostat the textbook they give you and study from that photostated version instead. End of story and note that the powers used here are not of Islam but the older Malay Animism, which should be revered for holy purposes instead of being used to deprive others of their future via taking their Mind Chakra (concentration).
The alternative version is that neurotech will be used under cover of false flag spiritualism. Take your pick but photostatting the textbook and exclusively using that photostat version (entirely leaving the ‘original’ textbook alone), is the best way to avoid the nuisance actions in all instances. Meanwhile do remember to vote for candidates that believe in :
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
