Free thosai outside DIG’s house – B Nantha Kumar – May 16, 2012

An Indian NGO claims that it wants to promote the heritage dish and denies that it has anything to do with the burger protest outside S Ambiga’s house.

KUALA LUMPUR: Fancy a free thosai breakfast this Sunday?

If you do, then head down to Ampang as a coalition of 20 Indian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are planning to set up a thosai stall in front of the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar’s residence on May 20.

Urging the public to attend the event, the movement dubbed WargaAMAN, said the stall would provide free thosai to all this Sunday, starting 10am, at Jalan 2/7G, Taman Bukit Teratai, Ampang.

WargaAMAN secretary S Barathidasan claimed that the event had “no connection” with the burger stall set up by some traders in front of Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga’s house last week.

Last Thursday, a group of burger sellers staged a protest in front of Ambiga’s house by distributing 200 burgers.

Organised by an NGO called Malaysia Small and Medium Entrepreneurs Alliance (Ikhlas), they set up the stall to show their displeasure over the April 28 Bersih rally, which Ikhlas claimed had disrupted their livelihood.

The NGO alleged that burger stall owners had suffered losses amounting to RM200,000 due to the rally, concentrated in certain parts of the federal capital.

Subsequently, Khalid, when asked why the police did not act against the burger stall owners, had replied that it was not wrong to sit in front of anyone’s house provided they did not disturb the occupants of the dwelling.

The DIG had said that there was nothing wrong with protesting outside a person’s house as long as the occupants are not disturbed.

“What offence? If you want to sit in front of her (Ambiga’s) house without disrupting other people, there is no offence.

“As long as they don’t commit any offence such as trespassing on private property, we will not take action,” Khalid had told a press conference in reference to the “burger protest.”

WargaAMAN, however, is firm that the event in front of Khalid’s house this Sunday would not be a protest but more of a thosai promotional event.

“We plan to promote thosai… Malaysians seems to have forgotten about the dish which had been classified as a heritage food by the Malaysian Heritage Department

“So, the event will be more of an awareness campaign… it is more to introduce the dish than a protest,” added Barathidasan.

Apart from a free thosai meal, the public would also be taught how to make good thosai.

“Since Khalid had said what he said, we chose his house. This is the assurance he gave. Moreover he is the number two cop in the country… it would be very safe outside his house,” he quipped.

‘Licence to grill’

In a related development, another NGO condemned the vulgar aerobic exercise staged outside Ambiga’s house.

Persatuan Kebajikan, Sosial Gemilang Puchong president V Rameshwaran said he was apalled that ex-servicemen could stoop so low.

“This is disgraceful, these men are supposed to be role models for the younger generation. It is a shame that they chose to behave in such a crude manner.

“It is acts like these that upset the public and turn Malaysia into a laughing stock. It will also make the people angrier with Barisan Nasional,” he told FMT.

Rameshwaran said Ambiga was defending the constitutional rights of Malaysians, including that of the ex-servicemen who staged the lewd protest.

As for the police’s justification for not acting against the “burger” protest, he suggested that stall owners whose premises were demolished by DBKL should set up stalls outside the houses of the mayor and Khalid.

“This is wonderful news. Now everyone has the ‘licence to grill’ outside anyone’s house, including that of the mayor, police chief, prime minister and ministers,” he said.

Retrogressively unchallengeable backlash w/o use of ISA type powers. BN (or is that PDRM) is using their brains after the fiasco at Bersih. Now, how about Ambiga file lawsuits against APARTHEID instead of carrying on with the Bersih farce?

Land split: Ex-estate workers cry foul – B Nantha Kumar – May 15, 2012

They were given 15 acres by the BN Selangor government in 2007, but now they only have seven acres. The other eight acres have been allocated for a luxury housing project.

KLANG: In 2007, the Barisan Nasional-led Selangor government allocated 15 acres of land to build houses for the former Bukit Raja estate workers.

But now a former worker claims that the Pakatan Rakyat state government had allegedly diverted eight of the 15 acres for a luxury housing project.

“Piling work (for the luxury housing project) started last month despite no signboard being placed at the site,” said P Mathialagan, 55.

The tractor driver said he was shocked to learn that the Klang District Land Office had a new plan which showed that the 15-acre land had been divided into two plots.

“The district office was reluctant to provide a copy of the so-called new plan and only allowed us to take a photograph of it.

“Something strange is going on. The ground breaking ceremony was officiated by Dr Xavier Jayakumar, the state exco (for Indian affairs) in January this year.

“So how come the 15-acre land can be split into two plots in just four months?” he asked.

Also present at the ground breaking ceremony were PKR Subang MP R Sivarasa, who is the lawyer for the ex-plantation workers and PKR Kapar MP S Manikavasagam.

Commenting further, Mathialagan said he wanted Jayakumar and Sivarasa to explain the matter.

He said that Bukit Raja estate was one of the pioneer rubber plantations in the country, founded about 200 years ago.

“I was seven-years-old when I came to Bukit Raja estate with my parents who were rubber tappers,” he added.

Mahtialagan said that in 1988, Sime Darby closed the estate to pave the way for commercial development.

However, all the 144 families who had been working in the estate, took Sime Darby to court in 2004 for not meeting several demands.

“We hired Sivarasa as the lawyer to represent us in this dispute,” he said.

“In 2007, former MIC president S Samy Vellu managed to get us the 15 acres from Sime Darby while another five acres were allocated to the Bukit Raja Tamil school,” he added.

Sime Darby allocated the land and RM7,000 as compensation for each family with the agreement that they had to build the houses on their own.

Land size disputed

Mahthialagan said Samy Vellu then handed over the entire housing project to Putra Umno chief Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim and the latter brought in SanuMurni Sdn Bhd, which was the current developer.

In 2007, the plantation workers signed an agreement with the housing developer. According to the agreement, each three-room house with two bathrooms would cost RM77,000.

“We were told to pay RM7,000 as deposit while the balance would be covered by bank loans,” said Mahthialagan, who added that the project which was to be completed in 2009 was abandoned.

After a long struggle, the Pakatan state government held the ground breaking ceremony on Jan 18 this year and the event was reported in all the Tamil dailies.

The PKR leaders, who attented the event, were reported as saying that the former estate workers would be given 15 acres.

“We were told that apart from houses, a temple and a public hall will be built as well,” said Mahtialagan.

“However, it seems like the Pakatan government broke its promise now that part of the land has given for a project to enrich their cronies,” he added.

Meanwhile, Jayakumar disputed the land size that was awarded to the ex- estate workers.

“Get your facts right. Go and ask Sime Darby about the land size. The 78 estate workers wanted landed property and the court ruled in their favour. They are getting it,” the exco told FMT.

However, Manikavasagam disagreed, saying that the allocation was indeed 15 acres.

“Bukit Raja estate comes under my constituency and I’m very sure that Sime Darby allocated 15 acres to the plantation workers,” added the Kapar MP.

Despite numerous attempts Sivarasa could not be contacted.

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

Can’t they use GPS to determine if the area is really 15 acres? This sort of nonsesne even about land size makes the Land Surveyors in Malaysia look like fools and the government feel complicit somehow. Is there no authority that can clearly speak, than this MP vs. big company ‘word against the other’ b.s.?

PAS Agrees To Field Non-Muslim Candidates – Thursday, 17 May 2012 14:10

KUALA LUMPUR — PAS has agreed to field non-Muslim candidates to contest in the coming general election in Sarawak and Johor.

Non-Muslim PAS Supporters Congress (DHPP) chairman, Hu Pang Chaw said they would contest in the Tiram State constituency in Johor and a parliamentary constituency in Sarawak.

“The matter is already agreed upon by PAS headquarters. DHPP has also asked PAS to field a candidate from DHPP for one seat in every state, regardless whether they are state or parliamentary seats.

“However, it is still at the discussion stage. The final decision depends on the PAS headquarters,” he told Bernama here, today.

DHPP is a wing of PAS representing their non-Malay and non-Muslim supporters.

Hu said a list of candidates from DHPP would be submitted to the PAS headquarters.

To date, candidates for Kedah, Perak, Selangor, Johor and Sarawak had been identified.

In the 2008 general election, PAS fielded a candidate from the Indian community to contest the Tiram State seat in the Johor Baharu Parliamentary Constituency.

However, the candidate R. Kumutha lost to Maulizan Bujang from Barisan Nasional.

Does the Non-Muslim PAS Supporters Congress have equal rights and votes and standing in PAS party yet? If not, then this is still a gimmick. Fielding non-Muslim candidates who do not have equality of standing in a poliytical party would mean PUPPETS are fielded. Is Non-Muslim PAS Supporters Congress a group of puppets which does not ask that they have equal rights and standing as all other PAS members?

Did Pang Chaw address the below issue yet?

Bar Council Has Become A Political Party – Wednesday, 16 May 2012 16:15

PUTRAJAYA — As the Bar Council’s concern seems to border on the politics of the country, it appears to have become a political party, noted Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Thus, the former prime minister said, it should let other organisations take over the professional side (of the Bar Council) to avoid confusion.

“I think a professional organisation should concentrate more on the profession, but it is quite obvious that the Bar Council has become a political party.

“Next, we’ll have the Malaysian Medical Association, the architects, all becoming political parties, and there’ll be a lot of confusion,” he told
reporters here at the Perdana Leadership Foundation today.

Dr Mahathir was commenting on a proposal to form a new organisation for lawyers to represent their profession, welfare and legal interests, as the existing Bar Council had failed to defend itself as a professional body with integrity.

Asked to comment on Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim’s resignation from the DAP, he simply said: “I knew from the beginning that the DAP was not the party for him…I do not know why he joined (the DAP).”

Dr Mahathir, who is also Chancellor of Perdana University, earlier witnessed the signing of two memorandi of understanding (MoU) between the university with Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (Mardi) and Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM).

The MoU with Mardi was to strengthen, facilitate, promote and develop cooperation and collaboration on agriculture research related to health, while the MoU with UPM was to strengthen, promote and develop sciences and academic cooperation between the two institutions.

Perdana University was launched last year, by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, with the objective of improving the quality of medical
education and healthcare in the country.

Currently, it has two medical schools. They are Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine, in collaboration with John Hopkins University School of Medicine which offers a four-year graduate entry programme based on the United States curriculum, and PU-RCSI School of Medicine which offers a five-year programme based on a conventional curriculum of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).

Slippery Slope To Lawlessness – Aliran Executive Committee – Thursday, 17 May 2012 15:59

Aliran is shocked by Deputy Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar’s glib reaction to the 10 May protest by Malaysian Small and Medium Entrepreneurs Alliance (Iklas) members outside Ambiga Sreenevasan’s home.

“What offence? If you want to sit in front of her house without disrupting other people, there is no offence,” he states without a trace of human understanding.

“Which privacy? They didn’t enter her house, they were in public space,” he maintains without an inkling of the dangerous situation created by these trouble-makers intent on causing mischief outside Ambiga’s house.

Such comments coming from the No 2 man in the police force no less, encourages lawlessness and opens the flood gates to mischief-makers, hooligans and thugs to go on a rampage. His comments are unacceptable and unbecoming of a police officer of his rank who is entrusted with the peace and harmony of this country founded on the supremacy of the Federal Constitution.

Already, spurred on by his comments, another bigger rally involving 500 traders has been planned for 24 May.

On 14 May, a group of 15 men, believed to be army veterans, blatantly performed vulgar aerobics in front of Ambiga’s house. They even had the temerity to challenge her to sue them; otherwise they would return with a bigger crowd.

Like everyone else, Ambiga has every right to peace and safety where she resides. This peace and safety cannot be threatened with impunity in a civilised society.

She has every right to expect respect for her religion and culture just as others have a right to respect for their faith and way of life. But in a very callous manner of defiance, these people who put up stalls to distribute free beef burgers were completely oblivious to the fact that Ambiga is a Hindu and a vegetarian. They grilled beef patties outside her house in offensive disregard for her faith.

The harassment she is subjected to is as stark as daylight – but obviously not to the Deputy IGP who has, knowingly or otherwise, ignited a fuse that could take this country down the slippery path to lawlessness. We hold him responsible for this.

We are equally disturbed that the Prime Minister, the chief executive of this nation, has chosen to maintain a dangerous silence over such hooliganism and the danger the Deputy IGP is putting this nation into. If there is a breakdown of law and order, the PM and the Deputy IGP must be ultimately held responsible for this descent into what might turn out to be anarchy.

Provocative Actions Of Few Will Not Ruffle Najib – Friday, 18 May 2012 00:06

KUALA LUMPUR — The provocative actions of a few individuals during Najib Tun Razak’s meeting with Malaysians in London recently will not affect the confidence of the Prime Minister in continuing to interact with the people, said Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Deputy Prime Minister said as a statesman, Najib was an open-minded person and would not feel threatened by such circumstances.

“He (Najib) knows anything can happen (like what happened at the meeting), but the majority of those present welcomed him except for two or three malicious people who want to disrupt the function,” he told reporters after opening the annual general meeting of the Bumiputera Manunfacturers and Services Industry Association of Malaysia, here yesterday.

At the “An Evening with the Prime Minister” event in London on Tuesday during Najib’s two-day working visit to the United Kingdom, two or three out of the 1,500 people gathered there tried to disrupt the function by heckling Najib.

Muhyiddin, however, said although the act was rude and did not show respect for the nation’s number one leader, the government would not arbitrarily take action every time someone spoke out against the government.

On another matter, Muhyiddin said Tenaganita executive director Irene Fernandez was ill-informed about the actual situation in the country when she allegedly made wild allegations that Bangladeshis workers were poorly treated in Malaysia.

Questioning her motives for making such allegations, the Deputy Prime Minister said the government had never prevented foreign workers form returning to their own countries if they felt Malaysia was not safe and did not have laws to protect them, as claimed by Irene.

“However, I believe 99.9 per cent of them disagree with Irene Fernandez…so what is Irene Fernandez’s motive in denigrating Malaysia,” he said.

In fact, he said, at his meeting with Bangladesh’s minister in charge for the country’s citizens working overseas on Wednesday, the latter had asked the Malaysian government to lift its freeze on the intake of Bangladeshi workers.

“If Bangladeshi workers are poorly treated here, why would the Bangladesh government ask Malaysia to lift its freeze on hiring workers from the country,” he said.

Irene in a recent interview with Indonesia’s Jakarta Post newspaper is alleged to have claimed that Malaysia was an unsafe place for foreign workers and that it did not have a legal framework to protect them.

Restore Decency, Civility To Politics And Public Life – by Lim Kit Siang – Friday, 18 May 2012 00:11

When the Prime Minister, Najib Razak spoke about “uncivilized enemies” who will lead Malaysia to ruin at the UMNO anniversary gathering at the Bukit Jalil Stadium last Friday, Malaysians immediately thought of two”uncivilized” acts which occurred only the day before – the Perkasa “funeral rite” in front of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s house in Penang and the setting up of a burger stall in front of the house of Bersih 2.0 co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan’s house at Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.

Since then there had been a third “uncivilized” act which had never happened before in Malaysian politics and public life in the nation’s 54-year history – the utterly insensitive and deplorable “butt” dance by a group of armed forces veteran in front of Ambiga’s house two days ago, with the promise of more and bigger “uncivilized” actions to come!

What is most shocking is that these “uncivilized” actions had at first the approval and support of important personalities in government – especially the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar and some Ministers who asked what was wrong with setting up a beef burger stall in front of Ambiga’s house.

As a result of the tide of adverse public reaction in the past week, there appears to be a belated realisation in some official circles that such insensitive and deplorable “uncivilised conduct” have gone beyond the pale of the acceptable and permissible for ordinary decent Malaysians, regardless of race, religion, region, class, gender or age.

This explains for the condemnation of these “uncivilized” actions by those who had earlier held their silence.

This is however completely inadequate.

The time has come to restore decency and civility to politics and public life in Malaysia.

The Prime Minister, Najib Razak, the Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and the Cabinet must come forward to speak loud and clear their condemnation of these three “uncivilized acts” in the past week and to set the tone and example for decency and civility in politics and public life in Malaysia enroute to a developed high-income nation in 2020.

Bar Council shakes off ‘political party’ tag, says only defends law – By Clara Chooi – May 18, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 — The Bar Council has refuted accusations calling it a political party, insisting that every statement it makes “is premised on legal principles or human rights”.

Its president Lim Chee Wee said the council has also been fair in its criticisms of both the government and opposition, dismissing claims that its views were biased.

The council came under heavy fire from Barisan Nasional (BN) politicians after it resolved during its extraordinary general meeting (EGM) last week to condemn what it alleged was excessive use of police force against Bersih 3.0 participants.

Umno minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad even labelled the council a “political party” and voiced support for the formation of a second Malaysian Bar as an alternative for lawyers.

“Every statement of the Bar is premised on a legal principle or human right, in this instance, the right of a Malaysian to be protected by the police and not harmed,” Lim (picture) said in an emailed statement to The Malaysian Insider.

“Both Nazri and Dr Mahathir failed to address the message of the Bar, namely why has the police failed to implement the recommendations of the past four Suhakam (Malaysian Human Rights Commission) inquiries in dealing with assemblies?”

The recommendations from the commission included suggestions for law enforcement officers to be compelled to wear identification numbers; a five-stage crowd control process (verbal persuasion, use of non-lethal force, clear warning for dispersal, adequate time for dispersal and no arrests of dispersing crowd); and no assault on protesters.

Lim repeated that while proper restraint by the police was observed during Bersih 3.0’s simultaneous assemblies in Ipoh, Malacca, Johor Baru and Kuantan, the main rally in the capital was the complete opposite.

During the April 28 protest in KL, riot police had used tear gas canisters and water cannons to disperse protesters, many of whom have since alleged that the armed personnel had also assaulted them.

The council, as a part of its EGM resolution, had also demanded apologies from the police and home minister for the alleged use of indiscriminate force to disperse otherwise peaceful protesters.

But neither the government nor the police have since issued apologies and other than Nazri and Dr Mahathir, several anti-Bersih proponents had called the council biased towards the opposition.

Denying this, Lim pointed out that the council had also criticised the opposition in the past.

“The Malaysian Bar speaks up when the government does the right thing,” he added. “For example, the establishment of the National Legal Aid Foundation and better support of court infrastructure. Equally it will criticise when it makes a mistake, in this instance police brutality and wrongful use of force.”

Guan Eng defends banning Utusan in Penang, calls it ‘party organ’ – By Anisah Shukry – May 18, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 — Lim Guan Eng today defended Penang’s decision to ban Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia, calling it a “party organ” masquerading as a newspaper following criticism that the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) bloc does not guarantee media freedom.

On Wednesday, the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ) said in its report that a Pakatan Rakyat-led government was no guarantor of media freedom due to its banning of Utusan in Penang and Kelantan.

But the Penang chief minister insisted today that when it came to media freedom, newspapers must “walk the talk”.

“When you talk about newspapers, you have to be clear, are they newspapers or party organs? You cannot have party organs that masquerade as newspapers,” he told reporters at a press conference here.

“Utusan Malaysia is not a newspaper. It is a party organ because they don’t give you right of reply.”

He cited Utusan’s yearly reports that Penang had banned a march to commemorate Prophet Muhammad’s birthday as proof of the newspaper’s false reporting and reluctance to allow him to reply to its articles.

“Every year, Utusan says (the march) is banned, when actually it isn’t. Penang people know (that it is not banned). Penang Malays laugh because they themselves marched in it.”

Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general, said that despite refuting the newspaper’s articles on the matter, Utusan only stopped reporting it after he had sued them and won the case.

But he pointed out that as he could not sue Utusan “every day” for its “false reports”, he was left with no option but to bar its reporters from covering the state government proceedings in Penang.

“Even when I sue and won the case, they still continue. What can I do? It’s an act of self defence. I have no choice but to say ‘please don’t cover me and print my news’,” he said.

“It’s okay with me because I’m scared of you. I throw my hands up. Don’t cover me because you don’t give me the right of reply,” he said.

The Penang legislative assembly adopted a motion in May 2011 barring Utusan from covering its proceedings following unverified reports on the renovation costs of Lim’s rented residence, and an alleged plot by the DAP and Christian pastors to change the country’s official religion to Christianity.

a) But the Penang chief minister insisted today that when it came to media freedom, newspapers must “walk the talk”.

“When you talk about newspapers, you have to be clear, are they newspapers or party organs? You cannot have party organs that masquerade as newspapers,” he told reporters at a press conference here.

Freedom of speech means that Guan Eng now should be charged under some freedom of speech act in law. If Utusan is worth anything, Utusan will sue on the free speech issue. Conversely would Utusan allow Playboy or Penthouse, or Hustler to be sold and bought by non-Muslims at least? This is no better than banning Playboy or Penthouse, or Hustler! GTFO of Dewan undemocratic nepotist! If anyone does not like Utusan, don’t buy thats all. Guan Eng has abused the CM’s office to destroy free speech, even that of a hated racist papers’. Wrongful sections could be demanded for retraction or removal, blacked out, or sued against, but no bans can be fairly applied.

b) “Utusan Malaysia is not a newspaper. It is a party organ because they don’t give you right of reply.”

Some of us sent DAP whole manuscripts in hopes of writing a better exposition of Malaysia’s situation which DAP willigly used no end and no word of thanks. They tried to destroy the writers instead. DAP is as bad as PAP possibly. Did DAP reply? DAP precluded right of reply. DAP has proven DAP is worse than Utusan.

c) “It’s okay with me because I’m scared of you. I throw my hands up. Don’t cover me because you don’t give me the right of reply,” he (Lim Guan Eng) said.

3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

Protesting landowners camp-out at state office – Joseph Tawie – May 16, 2012

Sixty-five native landowners are demanding that the government rescind provisional leases (PLs) issued against their lands, to private companies.

KUCHING: Native landowners from several longhouses in Balai Ringin continued with their protest for the third day running by camping at the Land and Survey headquarters carpark here in Kuching.

Spokesman for the native landowners Augustine Bagat said the community won’t budge until their problem is solved.

“We will continue to protest even until Gawai Dayak on June 1 as long as the Director of Lands and Surveys does not make any decision on our native customary rights (NCR) land which the department leased to three companies.

“We want to show we are very serious,” Bagat said.

Their protest by camping at the car park has attracted the attention of both the Opposition and the Barisan leaders.

A concerned Balai Ringin assemblyman Snowdan Lawan said the campers were his voters and he was “very concerned with their welfare.”

“I am prepared to mediate between the native landowners and the Land and Survey Department,” he said.

Meanwhile Kota Sentosa assemblyman Chong Chieng Jen who met with the protesters said that he would raise the matter in the current sitting of the Dewan Undangan Negeri.

“The delaying tactics by the Land and Survey is not helping the natives.

“This is the time when the people are standing up for their rights that the government has taken away their land. They are going to stay here until the problem is resolved.

“We call on all those who face similar problems to come and visit them in order to show solidarity with them,” said Chong, who is also Sarawak DAP secretary.

‘Policy change needed’

He said that this is not the only group that has suffered. Throughout Sarawak there are hundreds of thousands of natives whose lands have been taken away from them.

“This is very unfair on the part of the state government which only turns a blind eye to their problem.

“Actually the government is working in cohorts to take away NCR lands from the natives,’ he said, pointing out that the problems are created by the system.

Chong said only through a change of policy could the problem be resolved.

The natives first brought their case to the Director of Lands and Surveys in January this year asking him to cancel the provisional leases on their land.

On March 17, the same group again tried to meet the director. The director refused to talk to them. Instead he sent a junior officer to deal with them.

Earlier on May 14, the group had tried (for the third time) to see the director. Again the director refused to meet them. A junior officer was sent to talk to them saying that their problems are yet to be solved.

Unhappy and angry the 65 natives – men and women – refused to go home and made their camps in the car park in front of the Land and Survey headquarters to show their protest.

But in the evening, only 30 protesters camped at the car park while the rest went home.

They were, however, relieved by another group in the morning.

“While one group of 30 people goes home, another group of 30 comes in to replace them. We will eat and sleep in the camps.

“We will do it (the protest) for the next few days or even until Gawai Dayak on June 1. This is to show how serious we are,” said Bagat.

Lands bulldozed, farms destroyed

According to Bagat, three companies – Memaju Jaya, United team trade and Tetangga Arkab – were given the PLs to plant oil palm in their NCR land.

One of the companies is allegedly owned by the former Kedup assemblyman, Frederick Bayoi Manggie.

His company is said to have been awarded 5,500 acres of land, the bulk of it is NCR land. The native landowners alleged that their land was part of a deal for Manggie to step down as elected representative.

His place was taken over by Martin Ben.

“Our lands have been bulldozed and fruit trees, rubber gardens and farms destroyed,” said Bagat, adding that the government had refused to talk with them.

Guan Eng’s Dark Side Revealed – Tee Siew Kiong – Friday, 18 May 2012 00:09

The interview recently conducted with Tunku Abdul Aziz has uncovered the dark side of Lim Guan Eng. It has proven that Lim Guan Eng misuses his power to freeze out any dissidents within the party causing the party to be in a stir of mess. It really is a futile effort by Lim Guan Eng to try to conceal his autocratic, despotic leadership style in DAP anymore.

Tunku Abdul Aziz’s decision to quit the party has exposed the real façade of DAP. The true colors of Lim Guan Eng are now revealed, showing us that he not only hides skeletons in the closet, but he also cannot tolerate any conflicting opinions by its members.

According to the media, Tunku Abdul Aziz has previously raised to the DAP Central Committee Members several incidences where DAP leaders had knowingly broken the law. However, his words of caution were not heeded and were shunned upon, telling us that the party’s leadership turns a blind eye to the ill-discipline of its members, allowing law-breakers to roam free.

When Lim Guan Eng, the Secretary-General of DAP, said that time will tell when who is right, he is merely trying to escape criticisms aimed towards him by hoping that over time, the people will forget all the misdeeds he has done. It is all part of his usual ploy to divert the people’s attention and to let the issue subside.

Tunku Abdul Aziz has personally said that the decision to leave the party was one that relieves him as he is glad that he has escaped the despotism of DAP politicians. His departure has exemplified that there exists deep-rooted dissatisfaction and discord among DAP party members.

When Tunku Abdul Aziz first joined DAP, he supported the ideal of a multi-racial political party fighting for the interests and well-being of the people from multiple races. Now, his departure has proven that DAP is not as what they claimed. They are using the name ‘multi-racial party’ as a mockery, to disguise themselves as a Chinese-based party ruling the Chinese.

Of ethics, principles and ideals – SPECIAL REPORTS – Wednesday, 16 May 2012 admin-s

(The Star) – There are many DAP leaders who go against the very laws they help draw up, even within the states where they form the government, said Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim.

He said these leaders failed to see the “whole picture” on the need to maintain high ethics and integrity at all times and on all issues.

The former Transparency International country head said he had spoken out many times at the central executive committee (DAP’s highest ruling body) meetings about such unethical behaviour but it had always fallen on deaf ears.

He added that he was nave to think that the very political principles and ideals, like freedom of speech, that he held dear were also shared by the whole DAP.

“There was a key party member who set up the Rocket Caf in Petaling Jaya and this was done without the council approval.

“When other members raised this, it was pushed under the rug and no action was taken,” he said in an interview.

Tunku Aziz pointed out that this was happening in Selangor where the DAP was the leading member of the ruling coalition.

He claimed that many of the party leaders did not realise the importance of local councils although it was the main point of contact between the people and the government.

“In this case, the DAP is part of the government and if the people have a bad impression, then it is a reflection on themselves.”

Tunku Aziz also cited another case of abuse where another “key leader” prevented council enforcement officers from taking action against illegal hawkers.

“He protected the hawkers just because they are DAP supporters. That is wrong and unethical. I raised this case (in the CEC) but I could see that they were not comfortable with it. They must realise ethical issues are important. Integrity issues are important.”

He said the DAP and PKR had done a fairly decent job of running Selangor and Penang but he was worried about the consequences of their unethical transgressions.

He cited the letter by Damansara Utama DAP assemblyman Dr Cheah Wing Yin to the party complaining about a wide range of shortcomings in the Selangor administration as “the tip of the problems”.

“I agree that one or two of the DAP executive councillors need to be closely watched. Can these people be trusted with bigger responsibility if this is how the DAP and its Pakatan Rakyat allies behave?” he asked when questioned if they were ready to administer the country.

On Penang, Tunku Aziz said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng spent too much time blaming the previous administration for everything but conceded that the state was well managed.

He also questioned Lim’s style of leadership, saying: “To be a good leader, one must be a good listener. Guan Eng needs to listen more.”

Here’s a full version of the Q&A with Tunku Aziz.

Q: So how was last night?

A: I thought it went very well, you know.

Well, of course my telephone didn’t stop ringing for two hours. I had to turn it off because I couldn’t cope with the number of calls coming in and the number of SMSes coming in from all over the place.

Do you know how many calls you had?

> I think quite a few dozen (calls) actually. I don’t know who they were because they were not people I know, because if they were then I would know. The name would appear on the screen. I believe people from the media, I would say. I took just one, someone I knew from Sin Chew. But even then I said, nothing really to say tonight after what I said on TV.

Were there any calls from the DAP party leaders?

> None. There were none. Messages came from party members. All saying that they respected my decision and they were sorry I’d decided to call it quits.

Did you inform the DAP leaders before the thing was broadcast that you’re going to quit?

Well, several days ago, I think soon after Bersih, I had mentioned in my email to the secretary-general that in view of what they said was the sentiment on the ground against me. I said I would resign from the CEC. And after a suitable, decent interval, I would resign from the party if it would restore the harmony within DAP. They did not respond to this, but Kit Siang made two visits to my house basically to say that he hoped very much that it wouldn’t come to that.

Was this a friendly visit? Not in official capacity?

> No! You see, Kit Siang and I get on extremely well together, We are friends. So the visit was a friendly visit, it was just between two friends. The last visit was somewhere last week. But they knew there was going to be this broadcast because I asked the Headquarters’ Chief of Staff to let all the CEC members know that I was going to be on this programme. I suppose they must have had some inkling.

No one called you saying Tunku, please don’t go on air?

> Kit Siang said that he would leave it to my wisdom, but he didn’t say not to go on air, but you know He knew that I would use my wisdom. Their main fear was that this might be exploited.

I wanted it to be a dignified exit, and to be fair. Because I am not against the party, I am not against the party at all. I am just against the attitude adopted by the secretary-general. Particularly when he first got in touch with me, it was to accuse me of going against the party position. Which was to support Bersih.

I at no time had withdrawn my support for Bersih. I have always supported Bersih for what Bersih stands for. I’ve spoken for free and fair elections on several occasions. Not as vice-chairman of DAP but in my other capacities. So to say that Tunku is opposed to Bersih is something that the party and Pakatan Rakyat had been working hard to promote, is a little disingenuous.

And somehow it smacks of a reluctance or inability to see the difference between supporting free and fair election activity, and not supporting these activities if they were illegal. There is that distinction which I think they purposely ignored, because Lim Guan Eng, in his rebuke, was rebuking me for something I hadn’t done.

Would you say that your relationship with Guan Eng was not very cordial even before this? You were invited in by the father, but do you think the son was ever really keen on you?

> My relationship with Guan Eng before this was cordial, but a bit ambivalent. Both (Kit Siang and Guan Eng) invited me, and because of my great respect for Kit Siang I did not hesitate in the least because if felt that this would give me an opportunity to be in a party without being a politician, and was an opportunity to continue with my work in promoting integrity, both in the government and corporate sector.

In other words, the opportunity to be engaged in fighting corruption, which was my main mission in life. Because no other party actually had come out openly to say, you know, we will fight corruption but DAP has maintained its position insistently. It was very attractive.

This was your maiden venture into politics?

> Absolutely.

Are you bitter about it, four years later having to resign from the party?

> I think I was a little naive in thinking that the ideals that I had would be in fact the ideals that DAP actually practised. I don’t know about the other political parties but I expect they would be much the same.

As a man who has always been fighting against things that are unethical, would you say DAP as a party was ethical after four years of being inside?

> I wouldn’t say so. Well, for example… one of the key party members set up the Rocket Caf in Petaling Jaya, and this was done without Council approval being obtained. And when other members of the party raised this, it was just pushed under the rug and no action was taken. To me, this is not on.

Because Pakatan Rakyat is the government of Selangor and DAP controls in terms of its numbers the local councils within Selangor, PJ, and what have you.

Although people say “oh, it is a small matter”, to me, it is an important fundamental issue because you have broken your own by-laws. And if you are cavalier in your attitude to the law that you have made then, to me, it shows very sad state of affairs and bad judgment.

Did you raise the issue?

> I raised the issue, but you could see that it was not something they were comfortable with. And if you see recently Dr Cheah’s reports in The Star (Damansara Utama assemblyman Dr Cheah Wing Yin), this is the same kind of issue.

There are good people within DAP who want to see that we do things in an ethical manner, but there are others who you know will just go ahead in breaking their own rules. If you do this, sooner or later people are going to ask, can these people really be trusted with a bigger job?

What other things worry you in the Selangor administration?

> I think that while on the whole they have managed the state well we have to give them credit for that one or two of their exco members probably need to be put under closer scrutiny. I think what Dr Cheah has highlighted is probably the tip of the problems.

And your pronouncement on Penang? Is it much better than Selangor?

> I think Penang is well-run. I’ll say it’s well-run, but there are things which need to be improved upon. You see, the thing that has worried a lot of people is the fact that several years into the administration of Penang, there is a great tendency to keep blaming the past administration. It is almost like a case of a bad workman blaming his tools.

You are very well-known as a man of integrity, so I have to ask this question. Bersih was not the only problem you had with party leadership, was it? Were there other things?

> No. I mean, you know, the open sort of disagreement subsequently was Bersih. But there are obviously, in any sort of organisation or party, things that you are not entirely happy with but they’re not terribly significant to upset you to the extent that you would even think of withdrawing yourself.

But for me, ethical issues are important. Integrity issues are important. That’s perhaps why I am naive, because I believe that integrity you either have it or you don’t. You can’t say, you know, yes, this is 70 percent …

There is no glass half-full for integrity.

> You either have it or you don’t have it. For example, when the council decides to take action against illegal hawkers, one of our key figures would intervene to say don’t touch these people; don’t take any action because they are party supporters. To me, this is an act that is tantamount to interfering, serious interference in the operating system and the administration of local government.

Many of our people forget that local government is where the public first experiences dealing with the government. Many of them will never have to deal with Putrajaya or any of the ministries, but for the average person like you or me living in particular district or area, it’s all local government.

Would Tunku Aziz a Malay have been received in the same manner if he were Malaysian-Chinese? Your invitation, the position in which you leave Was any of it a racial move?

> I don’t think so. Except, I’m dealing with someone who does not seem to be able to see the whole picture and assist it in giving his slant to what is essentially a very straightforward matter.

I support Bersih but I do not support breaking the law. As simple as that. But you check that rebuke of me and there’s no mention that I was not against Bersih but merely against sitting at Dataran Merdeka because the court had ordered the participants not to breach it and the owner of the land.

They argued, it’s not city council. But to me, whoever is in charge of that place, they have responsibility. If they say “sorry, not here” (then that’s that). It’s things like that which really upset me.

So what next?

> Well, I have given very careful consideration to the what’. The action I have taken was not something that was done in the heat of moment, I consulted my immediate family and close friends, and all have said the same thing.

The party is obviously not ready to accommodate someone like me. I’m known for my plain speaking and I cannot just suppress my comments or feelings when things are done in a way that, to me, aren’t ethical.

So, the future. You know when I joined the party, I had no ambition to be anything but a member, and try to see if I could bring to bear on the party as a whole some of the values grounded in integrity and ethics, good governance, the fight against corruption, et cetera.

I never asked to be made vice chairman, then when they said they were going to make me that, I said fine. I never begged to be appointed as senator because I have never been a supplicant. I have never asked the government for any help or assistance, although you know as a Bumi I could have done that.

But I thought that because I was and still continue to be against the new economic policy. Particularly when I saw that they were departing from the original purpose. So to me, I never asked, I would never ask,

I would consider that as below my dignity. But when my term was ending, the Dewan mentioned that my term would be up and they sent a letter to that effect to the Penang government.

At that point, I sent Guan Eng a little note from my iPhone that this was coming up and if you are thinking of extending my term, I am available to serve and that was all.

He said yes, okay, and then he very kindly said to me at one of our recent CEC meetings that he would certainly put my name up and in fact he was going to announce it at the CEC but was reminded that he couldn’t, shouldn’t do it, because the matter had to go back to DAP Penang and then to the state government.

Then after the statement on Bersih, Kit Siang saw me and said it was unfortunate with the senatorship coming up that this had come about.

He said it may be a bit difficult for them to nominate me again. And I said to him, if this is going to cause any problem for the party, please do not put my name up, because not having my term renewed is really no skin off my nose.

I never asked for it in the first place and I do not want my being re-nominated to be the cause of disharmony within the party. So they did exactly what I told them to do not put my name up.

Somehow I don’t think they would have put your name up anyway.

> Oh, absolutely. Am sure they welcomed it. But I wanted my position to be entirely clear. I am not pushing myself forward. The party, as I also said to them, no man is bigger than the party. If in your opinion I have transgressed, I would expect you to take action. I encourage that. Put me through the disciplinary procedure.

When did you tell them this? Immediately after getting the rebuke or before that?

> After getting the rebuke. He (Guan Eng) made the point that I had done this, that, and the other. If they’re saying that I’ve done something so serious that it requires disciplinary action, I said go ahead and do it because that’s what leadership is all about.

Leadership is about tackling unpleasant tasks and not evading them. I told Guan Eng, I would think a lot more of you if you took appropriate action. Going to be difficult but this is your duty in the interest of the party.

What did he say?

> Absolutely nothing, No reaction. No reaction to me suggesting that I want to resign from the CEC and after a decent interval, as I did not want the whole thing to be seen as a rushed job, I would leave the party.

Here’s a very unfair question. Is Guan Eng disappointment as a leader? You obviously have great admiration for his father.

> The son is a different kettle of fish. I don’t want to get personal. He is a good leader, apart from other qualities. Leaders must be good listeners, this is from my observation.

So is he a good listener?

> By my reckoning, he should learn to listen more and give everybody a chance to be heard.

You have to first learn to be, I think, a little modest because it’s not for you to say how well you’re doing or how well you’ve done for Penang. Let the people of Penang decide. That is really the true measure of your achievement. When people say “well done Guan Eng”. But for you to scream your head off about CAT (a DAP slogan standing for “competency, accountability, and transparency”)? What is CAT? Cat is a slogan. But to him no. But when it comes to 1Malaysia, 1Malaysia is just a slogan. But CAT is not.

If all this didn’t happen, would you contest as candidate if you were asked?

> Yes.

Did anyone speak to you about that?

> No.

No one spoke to you about this?

> No one, although I did say to Guan Eng, Kit Siang, if they needed, if they were short of any candidates and felt I could be of any use, I was ready. You know, even at my age, if the party felt they needed my services, I am ready to serve.

Is this your last venture into politics?

> Absolutely, no question there. But what really made me finally decide to leave although I was thinking very seriously about what I should do was last Sunday at about 8.43AM, I had a phone call from Guan Eng. I don’t know whether to describe it as an act of contrition or whether he felt that I needed to be compensated for the loss of the Senate seat.

He offered me – now this really staggered my imagination offered me a senior fellowship at the Penang Institute, dangling travel as one of the attractions… And I said I’d have to think about it. This was followed up yesterday, after I had made up my mind.

His aide rang me at lunchtime yesterday to repeat his boss’s offer, but added that this time there would be a stipend of RM50,000 a year, along with other things. I regard this offer as totally insulting.

Totally totally insulting, and I could only conclude that it had come from someone who had no sense and not even a modicum of respect. Did he think I was that kind of person? What an insult. You rebuked me for the wrong reason, you removed my senate position, and then you offered a fellowship at Penang Institute. This man has gone out of his senses.

This was the clincher as far as I was concerned. This man has no sense of decency, in other words.

He ignored your emails, he insulted you… And I guess as a man of ethics and integrity, this Penang Institute sounded like a bribe.

> It’s a bribe, it’s a salve for my hurt pride. To me, as a senior person… I’m trying to find an English word for this behaviour, and I cant. The only word is a Malay word, and it’s “biadap”. I mean, that’s what really made me decide I will not work with this man. I am prepared to be rebuked, but the reason for the rebuke must be made very clear, you know.

Do you think that he was under pressure from Anwar Ibrahim or someone else to do all this?

> I wouldn’t go so far as to say that, but Kit Siang did say that there’s a lot of pressure from Pakatan Rakyat. And at that point I said to him, I did not join Pakatan Rakyat. As far as I am concerned, I couldn’t care less. I joined DAP. I am a DAP man. I am a DAP member. The fact that we are part of the coalition is a different matter, but I’ve not sold my soul to the party, and certainly not to Pakatan Rakyat.

You seemed reluctant to talk about Anwar the other night. Any particular reason?

> I wanted to keep it on a dignified level. I made it very plain at the start that I’d have to be very careful about what I said. I want to be fair and Guan Eng isn’t here to defend the party or defend himself. But Anwar, I have never been an admirer of Anwar. I don’t even know him.

Which is why it is surprising. Following your appointment was the height of DAP PKR coalition.

> That’s right, they’d just won elections. The great honeymoon period.

Is Guan Eng under pressure from Anwar because they are close to winning Putrajaya?

> I can’t really be 100% certain, but one never knows. For them, it’s political expediency. It doesn’t matter because I don’t think they’d give two hoots about anything or anybody who stands in their way. Asking too questions, raising issues, and so on.

So were the coalition in support of Bersih? Had they made it known?

> I think they had, all the top boys. All the three parties, it was generally accepted that we were behind it. Sending out messages on Twitter and this and that, getting people to come.

I support Bersih objectives, as long as they don’t cross the police line. My instinct told me that this was not going to end peacefully, from experience, stories, reports you have read from other parts of the world. All demonstrations particularly street demos start off peacefully but the average rate of success where they end peacefully is very small.

So how do you feel?

> I feel liberated from the tyranny of demagogy. It’s a blessed relief, I received so many wonderful messages of encouragement from people like Koh Tsu Koon, the president of the Senate, many others.

Nine people came to see me, we sat down and had a drink together. These people they have tried to, well, transform DAP at their level. They find there is so much cronyism, so many cliques. You don’t belong to the leadership clique, you’re out, You make an unfavourable comment, you’re out. I suppose no party is free from all this.

Chow (Chow Kon Yeow), head of DAP Penang, sent message saying I respect your decision. He should have been Chief Minister yet they parachuted Guan Eng in. He’s CM, Sec-Gen, MP

So do you think the coalition can make it to Putrajaya?

> At the moment I think this is as close as they will ever get because the so-called coalition is very fragile as they have not been able to resolve some very fundamental questions before going to elections that need to be addressed.

For example, the Muslim state. I do not know how they are going to resolve this because PAS will not abandon it. It is the central pillar of their religious and political beliefs. It’s like asking someone to abandon their principles.

Is this what you observed?

> This is what I saw from the inside. DAP, for example, is not happy with the current ambivalent attitude from PAS. One day they say yes, we won’t be a Muslim state, the next day say they will be. For the sake of political expediency they need to show they are united but that unity is not grounded in any kind of deep foundation.

It doesn’t take a lot, you can see, for Karpal (Karpal Singh, DAP national chairman) to show his displeasure. How can you go into battle when your strategy is compromised by different ideologies?

What about the recent reforms made by the current government?

> I see the whole thing not as a product that you can pick up off the shelf of a supermarket. This whole thing is the government trying to respond to the needs of the people. I see this as series of processes.

This is why I said they may not be perfect, a lot of that is still a work in progress, but a process needs a little time. We have waited for so long. Under the previous administrations, we articulated these concerns of ours but they were totally ignored. So for the first time we have a government who for reasons of its own is listening. Again, maybe for political expediency.

But as far as the average person on the street is concerned, that is not his worry. His worry is that some of the things which he feels are not in place are not being looked at. So while I don’t agree with the government all the time, my disagreement has to do with policies, policy issues.

I have never made it a habit to condemn everything someone does, whether it’s government or opposition or individuals because I believe that it’s not all bad. By the same token, not everything is good. We want the government to take into account the feelings of the people, what it is the people want.

This is why I support Bersih for free and fair elections. They have raised awareness. But they have done enough now, the government is listening. Give the government a chance to put right what we see as inadequacies within the electoral system, for example.

I am naive and sometimes very stupid, but I believe I’m doing the right thing.

So what do you think of the rumours that you’ve been bought?

> Tunku Aziz has been paid? The moment I expressed my view on Bersih getting involved in breaking the law, people did not stop to think about what I was against. They seem to believe that I was opposed to Bersih. And it didn’t help when my own party’s rebuke attributed my opposition in the wrong manner. To me it was a little dishonest because I feel I was rebuked for the wrong reason. I would take any rebuke like a man but there must be fairness, justice and equity. Things I have always fought for and stood for.

Some have said I was bought over by Umno. Even yesterday I received a lot of messages asking me to confirm whether I was leaving DAP to join Umno because the rumour mill had started. Of course I denied it and explained that I am not a frog. In any case, I haven’t seen colour of their money. The rumour is just a rumour that I left to join Umno, was paid millions by MCA, I am a Trojan horse, I am a mole.

I have all along been undermining DAP as a Trojan horse, but the point is it’s not as if I asked to join to be a mole or Trojan horse. I was invited to join and I tell you that I do not know anyone in Umno. Not one Umno official. I do not know any one of them.

So what is next for you?

> Whatever I do, I want to serve our country, and I think I have had the benefit of a lot of exposure, both in business as well as international organisations like the United Nations, the Commonwealth Secretariat. If the government or anyone thinks I could be useful, I’m happy to do that for our country.

But absolutely no politics. As they say, once bitten twice shy. But in this case once bitten, forever shy. Sekali cukup la.

Everybody have their view and understanding of certain issues. But when in one family you dont have father and everyone plays a father role than its difficult to run the house hold. same goes here when Pakatan dont have understanding and agrrement on important issues how are they planning to run the goverment.

Tunku Aziz says Penang Institute ‘utterly mad’ – By Shannon Teoh – May 18, 2012

Tunku Aziz insists he is “not going to be a part of it.”

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 — Tunku Aziz Tunku Ibrahim has dismissed the Penang Institute’s continued offer of a senior fellowship, saying the think tank “must be utterly mad.”

The state-funded institute told a press conference earlier today the offer was still on the table for the former DAP vice-chairman despite his resignation from the party on Monday.

“They must be utterly mad. Do they really think they can tell people it is not a DAP think tank?” the 78-year-old told The Malaysian Insider.

Penang Institute executive director Datuk Woo Wing Thye was quoted by The Star as saying that he would be “very happy if he accepts it” and the offer was not tied to whether the founding president of Transparency International Malaysia was a party member. “We realised that we had the possibility of bringing to Penang Institute a well-respected public intellectual with an international reputation,” Woo said.

But Tunku Aziz said that “they can want anybody or anything but I’m not going to be a part of it.”

“They can forget it,” he said over the phone before hanging up.

Tunku Aziz, who was the party’s most senior Malay leader, quit DAP on national television after being publicly rebuked by secretary-general Lim Guan Eng for not supporting the April 28 Bersih rally, which the former called “an illegal street protest.”

He then openly criticised DAP, singling out Lim for being “biadap (uncouth)” and untrustworthy.

The ex-Bank Negara advisor told The Star that Lim had called him on Sunday offering him a senior fellowship in Penang Institute and “[dangled] travel as an attraction” after his tenure as senator was not renewed.

“Zairil Khir Johari (Lim’s political secretary) called and repeated the offer and stated there was a stipend of RM50,000 to go with it.

“Totally totally insulting, and I could only conclude that it had come from someone who had no sense and not even a modicum of respect,” he had said.

But DAP and the Penang Institute have insisted that the job offer was “genuine” and that it had nothing to do with Tunku Aziz leaving the party or to compensate the loss of his senatorship.

DAP has tried to reach out to Malays, who make up 60 per cent of the 12-million strong electorate, by recruiting leaders such as Tunku Aziz.

But he has conceded his failure to win over the community to the Chinese-dominated party that has been accused by Umno of being anti-Malay and anti-Islam.

Justice For LGBTs, Justice For Malaysia – 26 April 2012 | Judging the Judges | Posted by Pang Khee Teik

Why is justice so far from those who really need it?

“Today I withhold this keris. But if one day I can’t tolerate anymore, I will use the keris against the enemy of this land!”

– Speaker at Anti-LGBT Rally, 12 Apr 2012

When the speaker at the Anti-LGBT rally talked about killing whoever he imagined is “the enemy of this land”, and by enemy he implied anyone who advocates for the human rights of LGBTs, the authorities looked the other way. But when Seksualiti Merdeka appealed for understanding, compassion and equality, it was deemed a threat to the national security and was banned by the police.

Have we gotten so used to threats that we are now threatened by compassion? Or could it be that we can no longer tell the difference between those making threats and those upholding the law? Look at what is happening at Dataran Merdeka this week. By brute force, the authorities have attempted to subdue those who dare to question their authority. If that fails, they will try to snuff out our hope for change by applying administrative terrorism.

It’s not just the police and the DBKL. I’m afraid the courts are no better. Seksualiti Merdeka’s judicial review of the ban was thrown out by a judge who insisted that the police’s power cannot be reviewed, effectively allowing the police a caveat to abuse its power unchallenged.

Last week, a teenager was charged for assaulting a Mak Nyah with a metal rod.  He was fined a mere RM400. Meanwhile, when Mak Nyahs around the country are arrested under Syariah offences for expressing themselves and not hurting anybody, they are fined RM1000 each and sent for counselling. We try to rehabilitate these Mak Nyahs for being too gentle, but these men who are so insecure about their masculinity they need to prove it through violence, we let them out to play after a smack on the hand.

So, at the forum titled “Homosexuality: A right or a crime?” at International Islamic University Malaysia two weeks ago, when the question was posed by an audience, “Aren’t the laws we already have enough to protect the LGBTs? We have laws for murder, for physical assault, for wrongful termination at work, etc. Are they not enough?” I can say, the answer is no.

In this article, I am less interested in what JMM said than in how they get away with what they say. I am interested in how the government of the day, which is supposed to be neutral, takes the side of the bullies against the bullied.

With bullies running the country, many LGBTs find themselves hiding further and further beyond the margins of the legal, beyond the reach of the laws that deem them unfit for society. Making a person think he deserves no justice is NO different from denying him justice. And that is how many LGBTs are denied one of the most fundamental rights of being human: the right to justice.

THE BULLY’S CHARTER

Malaysians don’t seem to understand that a just system is one in which minorities are protected from the majority, not the other way round. The most important minority is the minority of one. And if the law protects this minority against the tyranny of the majority, then it protects everyone. All of us!

Unfortunately, that is not the case in Malaysia. Not only does Malaysian justice not care about inequality, it seems to thrive on it. Some laws in Malaysia are effectively a bully’s charter.

Case in point: there is no law against homosexuality in Malaysia yet many believe it is a crime to be gay and lesbian. People may cite penal code “377a” and “377b”. But according to the wording of the statute, the crime is committed when ANYONE introduces his penis into a mouth or anus. Yes, ANYONE. I’m sorry to break it to you heteros: it is a crime for a husband to receive blowjobs from a wife too. You like this law so much, how about we knock down all your bedroom doors now and check?

Clearly both heterosexual and homosexual oral and anal sex are illegal but where the public and the state are concerned, it is a law against homosexuality. This is because “377” only targets men who have sex with men. If that is not discriminatory, then I don’t know what is.

That’s why many LGBTs don’t bother to seek redress to injustice they suffered. They are simply too disempowered by the perceived illegality of their very existence. They are too busy hiding from an imaginary law.

“YOU ARE A DEVIL!”

I know of a girl in Sabah whose mom found out she was in love with another girl. Her mom hit her repeatedly till she was bleeding. She was then locked up in the house for four months. The only times she was let out of the house was when she was sent for counselling during which she was told, “You are a devil. You are a devil.” There are many other girls like her in Malaysia locked up by parents because they fell in love.

I know of a teenaged guy from Penang who was kicked out from the home when his parents cannot accept that he wants to be a man, not the girl he was born as. For being born that way, many transgender folks are kicked out from homes by the very people who gave birth to them that way. Where are the laws to protect children from their own parents? How will they even know what the laws are?

Even those old enough to know the laws can’t do anything about it. I know of a lecturer from Petaling Jaya whose friend threatened to expose his sexual orientation to the university unless the friend was rewarded to keep quiet. He paid up. He had been discreet about his sexuality because he feared such a situation. But his secret also made him vulnerable. Many gay employees and bosses, professionals and civil servants, go to work daily afraid of being exposed. After years of alienation, they may have found comfort in a relationship. Yet this relationship threatens to ruin them. So many give in to blackmailers. How can they seek justice without risking exposure?

I know of a Mak Nyah from Melaka who was arrested for “cross-dressing” and was kicked by the arresting officers until she fell into a coma. She was persuaded to charge them for assault, but in the end, she changed her mind. She wasn’t sure if anyone could guarantee her safety from further assaults by these officials. Many Mak Nyahs suffer physical, emotional, sexual abuse at the hands of religious officers and police officers. Where are the laws to protect them from being abused by law enforcers?

Many LGBTs are spat at, insulted and punished as if we are worse criminals than the corrupt politicians who rob whole countries dry. Why would we be foolish enough to dream that the country would help us?

Once you are betrayed by your own parents, by your bosses, by your friends, by your own country, you will find it hard to trust anyone again. Once you hear about how LGBTs are beaten senseless by law enforcers, as an LGBT you will find it hard to trust the laws again.

WHERE ARE THE LAWS?

The laws are there. But they’re out of reach.

Living in a country where justice exists – but not for you – is like growing up in a family where love exists – but not for you. For many LGBTs, such countries and such families are part of our reality.

Both conditions form a vicious circle out of which there seems to be no escape. In order to deserve love, we pretend to be someone else. In order to maintain the pretence, we keep quiet in the face of injustice. By pretending and keeping quiet, we find ourselves at the mercy of those who take advantage of us. Thus more pretending, more keeping quiet, more being taken advantage of.

When I mentioned at the Islamic University forum how the justice system have failed LGBTs, I was offered this reply by a panellist: “Do we not treat criminals different from non-criminals?”

Like many Malaysians, she accepts unquestioningly that being an LGBT is a crime. She called it an immorality but never explained how it is immoral. Throwing children out from homes, blackmailing and beating up mak nyahs are just different ways of treating these “criminals”. Never mind that nobody should be called a criminal until proven guilty. Never mind that throwing minors out of homes, blackmailing, and physical assault are crimes in themselves. Being an LGBT must be a crime so great that others are justified in perpetrating further crimes upon us.

No wonder some Malaysians think it is okay to make violent threats and get away with it. Because they can.

DIFFERENT LANGUAGES

At the end of that forum that night, it occurred to me that while both sides of the debate referred to the laws this and the laws that, we actually meant completely different things. When we referred to “the laws”, we were thinking of an instrument that protects people. When some people refer to “the laws”, they were thinking of an instrument that punishes people.

This disparity reveals the opposing philosophies: people as innocent until proven guilty vs people as inherently guilty, in need of control and guidance from the state. One’s justice is fairness, equality, protection of rights. Another’s justice is vengeance, a show of might, reminding the minorities to toe the line.

Our words sound the same but they mean such different things that we are practically speaking different languages from each other. We might as well be talking to ourselves. Perhaps we are, and that’s the problem.

We need to introduce Malaysians to a radical concept: There is more than one definition to a word. More than one side to a story. More than one way to run a country.

More radical still: The state’s job is to facilitate as neutral as possible a space in which all definitions, all sides and all the different ways can dialogue.

That is why we need to get rid of discriminatory laws. We also need to send a stronger message to those who use violence, who threaten with violence, who endorse violence, that it is never okay. Fines and prison time won’t change them. But education may. Too many Malaysians display shocking ignorance about the way the universe and the human body work. That they are in the parliament is even more depressing. They are walking proof that what we need is a revolution in education.

If we just clean one thing at a time, we are practically doing janitorial work. We also have to reform the very fundamental ways we understand governance, democracy, justice. Without a paradigm shift, we are just cleaning up this paradigm’s shit.

FIGHTING FOR THE SAME

Whether it is the indigenous peoples in their ancestral lands or the Occupy Dataran folks at Dataran Merdeka or the students at their universities, the increasing scuffles with the authorities reveal today that the struggle for justice is not peculiar just to LGBTs. They are reflections of how far justice is from those who truly need it.

We are stuck with pleading for justice from the very ones who have perverted justice. It is like the grass begging for mercy from the grass cutter. No thanks.

We need to believe that we are first the people, REGARDLESS of sexual orientation and gender identity. We need to take back the act of defining words that are important to us. We need to tell our stories. We need to stake claim to all the public spaces till they belong to everyone again.

I applaud everyday Malaysians who tirelessly champion for the changes we need in this country. Indigenous peoples, refugees, students, the poor, minorities, LGBTs, women, political dissidents, religion believers, voters, we are fighting for the same: to be seen as human first. What you believe makes you human and what I believe makes me human are just as important.

The real enemy of this land is inequality. There is no more important struggle today than the struggle for equality. It is by recognising we are all equal before the law that the democracy for which we fight becomes truly meaningful.

Stop Homophobia and Demonisation of LGBTs – 17 May 2012 | Let’s Talk About Sex | Posted by Hafidz Baharom

May 17 is the International Day Against Homophobia, and as such I feel compelled to write something that is being viewed as most of Malaysia with a stigma that has reached truly frightening proportions. First and foremost, let us review some facts.

Homosexuality is not a mental disorder, as one Dr Marshitah, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, can so casually suggest without any reference from the Malaysian Psychiatric Association. Being gay or lesbian has not been seen as a mental disorder since 1979 and, in fact, her view point is not even recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Similarly, there is no just cause, religious or civil, to suggest that transgender people should be beaten up, as what has happened in Kuantan in the months passed, with no further word from the police up till now on what actions will be taken against them.

Instead of providing education that homosexuality is a normal occurrence, having been recorded in hundreds of animal species of avian, mammalian and reptilian descent, we have a government education system, a non-government organization and even religious leaders who still come out and state that homosexuality is something that is unnatural. The evidence is of course to the contrary.

The simple truth is that homosexuality has now become the new boogeyman in Malaysia for purely selfish reasons. It does not affect the work of a doctor, nor does it make any civil servant less or more of a capable leader, as suggested by a certain Parliament member through his ludicrous call to screen future elected leaders for homosexuality. This, of course, is the same leader who decided to brand a certain party a group of pondans for not contesting in a by-election two years ago.

For those in school, homophobia becomes a constant cause of torment and bullying. While most Malaysian teens are capable of shrugging it off and do not bow down to the concept of teenage suicide as we see in America, it is imperative to know that such bullying will have long term scarring on a person’s psyche’.

A person’s sexual orientation nor gender has no effect whatsoever on the way they perform in their selected professions. Homophobia, however, will affect them to the point of a lacking in focus and a burden of shame caused by societal pressure that will result in a decrement to both the individual and those that surround him.

On this particular day, I just implore that we take a moment to read up on what we know about homosexuality before catering to prejudice. Malaysia has always been a land where we have learned to agree to disagree without having to resort to violence and hate speech in such a manner deemed life-threatening.

Malaysians may not agree with homosexuality. They may state so for religious reasons. However, the very same people who speak so loud against homosexuality should take note that somewhere in their family, nuclear or extended, there are gay and lesbian relatives hearing him shame them. It is a fact that you may have an uncle, an aunty, a cousin, a nephew, a niece, a son, a daughter or perhaps even your own grandchildren, who are gay. Would you cause them such emotional damage for something they have no control over?

What the LGBT community is asking for right now is a right to proper education, an acknowledgement of their existence and a right to be protected under the law, something that the transgenders have in the Federal Constitution, but not those of us with differing sexual orientations.

In other words, what we want for ourselves is the right to be recognised as human beings just like everyone else. Would you deny us even that?

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

Again harangue or complain, but no lawsuits against the people who refuse to amend laws. Is Hafidz (at least well connected enough to be featured regularly here on Loyar Burok), wealthy enough, and ready to take the below results yielding actions?

A single aye or nay from all 222 MPs will determine who is liable to be included in that lawsuit that can be filed at the UN, NAM, International Criminal Court or even applications for degrees of the MPs who went nay to changing of laws to legalise and protect LGBTs. If Hafidz is serious, he will carry out the above plan (maybe alongside Pang) instead of floundering around marches. Remove the anti-LGBT MP’s degrees, damn the anti-LGBT MPs into unvotability make a massive statement that educational recognition will be denied anti-LGBT racists. The first only effective step is lawsuits against the anti-LGBT MPs and the removal of all degrees from such persons EVEN within the entire legal profession of 14,000+ lawyers and even the ‘Law Minister’ of the day. The international community of billions can crush a petty handful in Malaysia.

The IGP must fall on his sword – THE CORRIDORS OF POWER – Friday, 18 May 2012 Super Admin

As far as Malaysians are concerned, the order to act violently against the Bersih protestors came from Najib’s office. How many, other than those in the Prime Minister’s inner circle, know that Najib actually ordered that there should be no violence and no pre-rally arrests? How many outside Najib’s office know that the IGP admitted to the Prime Minister he had lost control of the police on that day and that it was the result of the rumour regarding three police officers being killed?
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

Raja Petra Kamarudin

The alarm bells should have gone off in Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s office last year when the IGP, Tan Sri Ismail Omar, said that only 1% of the police officers are corrupted (READ BELOW).

30 years ago, Tan Sri Mohamed Amin Osman, the Deputy IGP, told me that if you want to clean up the police force then only 3% of the police would be left. What Tan Sri Amin meant was that 97% are corrupted. And you mean to tell me that things have improved so much since 30 years ago?

Anyway, that is not what I am saying. That is what the Deputy IGP — who later became the Acting IGP when the IGP, Tun Mohammed Hanif Omar, went to London for a year to do law — said 30 years ago.

The point is, no need to tell us how many percent of the police are corrupted. For 30 years we have been playing with percentages. Tell us how you plan to clean up the police force. No one is telling us that.

Put me in charge of the Police Force Commission (PFC) and I will do what China does. China puts a bullet in the heads of corrupt government officers and police personnel. Hudud is a walk in the park by comparison. I prefer China’s Hudud any time.

Now, read the latest Human Rights Watch report below regarding the Bersih 2.0 rally last year. That fiasco can also be ‘credited’ to the IGP. And the manner in how the police handled the Bersih 2.0 rally not only surfaced on the international radar screen and greatly embarrassed Najib’s government, but it was also the reason why many more protestors, especially the non-Malays, turned out for the Bersih 3.0 rally.

In other words, the more brutal the police act towards peaceful demonstrators, the more defiant the people would become and the more politically active they become as well.

When news broke that Bersih is, yet again, going to organise a rally in April, the IGP went running to the Prime Minister to ask him as to what to do. What the hell is going on? The IGP should be having his fingers on the pulse of the nation. He should be the one advising the Prime Minister as to what to do, not asking the Prime Minister what the police should do.

The IGP told the Prime Minister that the police could round up and detain the organisers. Najib almost flipped. “No arrests!” said Najib. “No arrests and no violence. Allow them to hold the rally.”

The IGP then briefed Najib about the secret meetings some of those Bersih ‘masterminds’ were having. According to the mole in Bersih (yes, there is a mole in Bersih) the plan was to ‘duduk bantah’. They planned to occupy Dataran Merdeka and camp there as long as it takes until the government is brought down.

The rally can be allowed, said Najib, but under no circumstances must the marchers be allowed to occupy Dataran Merdeka. Get a court order if necessary to make it illegal to occupy Dataran Merdeka. But avoid violence and no pre-rally arrests. Go by the book, Najib stressed, and avoid a repeat of the Bersih 2.0 fiasco.

Then, on 28th April 2012, all hell broke loose. The police violence in Bersih 3.0 was as bad or worse than in the Bersih 2.0 rally. What happened to the ‘go by the book’ and the ‘absolutely no violence’ instruction from the Prime Minister?

The IGP crawled back to Najib’s office with this tail between his legs and sheepishly told the Prime Minister that he had lost control of the police on that day.

What happened? What made the police go berserk?

It was because of the rumour, the IGP replied. There was a rumour circulating amongst the police that three police personnel had died, killed by the Bersih protestors. Hence the police were outraged and were out for revenge. They no longer could control the police personnel on the ground.

Three days ago, on 15th May, the IGP celebrated his 59th birthday. At 59, the IGP can be asked to retire. And for sure he should not be given an extension of service on contract, even if for just a year. The IGP should just be made to go. Ask him to go now and make him take a few months leave until retirement day.

As far as Malaysians are concerned, the order to act violently against the Bersih protestors came from Najib’s office. How many, other than those in the Prime Minister’s inner circle, know that Najib actually ordered that there should be no violence and no pre-rally arrests? How many outside Najib’s office know that the IGP admitted to the Prime Minister he had lost control of the police on that day and that it was the result of the rumour regarding three police officers being killed?

Even if three police officers had been killed as initially rumoured, that is still no excuse to lose control of the police force. Any IGP who loses control of the police force can no longer stay on as IGP. And if Najib wants to clear his name and show that the order to act violently against the Bersih 3.0 protestors did not come from him, then the IGP must be forced into retirement.

Najib must remember that back in 1998, when Anwar Ibrahim was beaten up by none other than the then IGP, Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Mohd Noor, everyone said it was done on the instructions of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Even I, who did not like Anwar, became a staunch Anwar supporter because of the ‘black eye’ episode. I was so angry with what the police did, which I too believed was done on the instructions of the Prime Minister.

It was made worse when the IGP lied and announced that Anwar was safe when, in fact, he had been beaten up. Until today many people believe that Rahim Noor pleaded guilty and went to jail for two months to save Dr Mahathir. Dr Mahathir’s name has not been cleaned up entirely.

And the same goes with Bersih 3.0. This is going to be Najib’s ‘black eye’. Hence Najib must make the IGP pay for this. If the IGP stays, then most Malaysians will be convinced that the order to act violently against the Bersih 3.0 protestors came from the Prime Minister’s office.

If it did not, and if the IGP really lost control of his police, then he should be made to fall on his sword. There are no two ways about it. Either the IGP goes or Najib is guilty of violence on 28th April 2012. Which is it going to be?

IGP: Malaysian police only 1% corrupt

(MSN NEWS) – Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar announced Wednesday that only one per cent of the 120,000-strong Royal Malaysian Police were ‘corrupt or involved in immoral activities’.

Although he said the number was small, Ismail was quoted by Bernama saying that the number could spread like cancer if left unchecked.

The Royal Malaysian Police also claimed that public confidence in the police regarding bribery has increased by around five per cent, according to a survey by the police and the National Key Result Area (NKRA).

Ismail has an ambition to achieve zero per cent corruption in the police force, something he considered as possible given the low numbers reported by the survey.

The police is frequently perceived by members of the Malaysian public as being susceptible to bribery. Users on social networking sites responded to the announcement with skepticism about the one per cent claim made by Ismail.

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

Freedom of Expression, Assembly, and Association

(HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH) – Rights of expression, peaceful public assembly, and association —guaranteed in Malaysia’s Constitution—continued to be violated in 2011. On May 21 Bersih announced a July 9 “Walk for Democracy” to call for reform of the electoral system. In mid-June the police announced that no police permit, required by section 27 of the Police Act, would be issued for the march. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar threatened that “stern action” would be taken against anyone involved in an “illegal rally.”

Throughout June police mounted repeated shows of force, arresting activists distributing leaflets, wearing yellow Bersih shirts, or coordinating gatherings to promote the rally. On June 29 a plainclothes police unit without a warrant raided Bersih’s secretariat, confiscating Bersih materials and detaining some of those present for questioning; on July 1 the Home Ministry declared Bersih an illegal organization under the Societies Act. On the day before the march police obtained a court order prohibiting 91 rally leaders from entering downtown Kuala Lumpur. Although the thousands who eluded police blockades were peaceful and well-disciplined, but police broke up the rally using baton charges, chemically infused water cannons, and teargas barrages. Nearly 1,700 people were arrested. Journalists and ordinary citizens released photographs and video documenting much of the abuse.

On June 25, police stopped a bus carrying PSM activists to a planned rally, detaining 30 on suspicion of “preparing to wage war against the king.” They were released from pre-trial detention on July 2, but police immediately re-detained six of their leaders under the EO. All 30 were charged under the Societies Act and a section of the ISA outlawing possession of subversive documents. On September 19 the attorney general released them and on October 10, a court affirmed the release as a “discharge not amounting to an acquittal,” which makes them subject to future prosecution. On October 28, six PSM leaders were granted the same discharge.

“We will do something far worst than butt-flexing if Bersih 4.0 happens” – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Friday, 18 May 2012 Super Admin

(Malaysia Digest) -The controversial group that carried out the butt-flexing exercise in front of Datuk S. Ambiga’s house has threatened to retaliate should the Bersih organizing committee reneged on its promise to not continue with the rally.

The president of Persatuan Veteran Tentera Malaysia (PVTM) Mohd Ali Bahrom pledged a “far worst demonstration should Bersih suddenly do a U-Turn and proceed with Bersih 4.0”.

“We will do something far worst than a butt-cracking exercise,” he told Malaysian Digest.

“We want to keep the peace and will do anything to retain it.”

Mohd Ali who was wearing yellow also urged Pakatan Rakyat to stop using Bersih as their tool in garnering support and momentum.

“PAS, DAP and PKR should not pressure Bersih into another rally, because their intention is not the same with Bersih which is for free and fair elections.”

Mohd Ali said the opposition coalition must accept and respect Ambiga’s decision to not organize Bersih 4.0.

“They wish for another Bersih to be staged, but they must now respect the Bersih top leadership’s decision,” he said.

“After all, what they want from another rally is just to get the momentum going for the general election.”

PAS’ Mohamad Sabu had said one million people would join the next Bersih rally in protest if Putrajaya did not implement immediate electoral reforms.

Reconsider ‘thosai’ plan, says Ambiga – Friday, 18 May 2012 admin-s

(Free Malaysia Today) – The Bersih co-chairperson says such actions infringe on the privacy of an individual and Malaysians must be respectful of private spaces.

Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga has asked a NGO planning to set up a thosai stall outside Deputy Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar’s house to reconsider its decision.

Despite her residence being the target of such incidents, the former Bar Council president said these actions transgressed the law and amounted to being a public nuisance.

“I strongly urge all to refrain from these acts which infringe on the privacy of an individual. I urge those who are proposing to give the thosai to make them and distribute them to charity,” she told FMT.

“Everyone must work towards making Malaysia a better place for all and we must be respectful of private spaces,” she added.

Yesterday, NGO WargaAMAN announced that it would set up the stall outside Khalid’s house in Ampang on Sunday.

WargaAman said it would distribute the thosai for free to the public in an attempt to promote the dish, which had been declared a heritage food.

Khalid, who welcomed the plan, however, suggested that it be held at a nearby field since his house was not a suitable location.

TSA Agents Conduct ‘Full Monty’ Pat-Down On Henry Kissinger – May 14, 2012 2:46 PM

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger speaks to introduce China’s Vice President Xi Jinping to leaders from the private and public sectors at a luncheon co-hosted by the US-China Business Council and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations with the support of several cooperating organizations in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 15, 2012.

Henry Kissinger, pat down, TSA

NEW YORK (CBSDC) — Even a Nobel Peace Prize winner can’t avoid a pat-down.

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger got searched by a Transportation Security Administration employee while going through a security checkpoint at LaGuardia Airport in New York Friday, The Washington Post reports.

Kissinger, who was in a wheelchair, was told by a TSA agent that he needed to be searched.

“He stood with his suit jacket off, and he was wearing suspenders,” freelance reporter Matthew Cole told the Post. “They gave him the full pat-down. None of the agents seemed to know who he was.” Cole added that Kissinger was given “the full Monty” search.

Kissinger negotiated the Paris Peace Accords which helped bring an end to the Vietnam War.

Earlier this year, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was detained at a Nashville airport after refusing to be searched by TSA officials.

‘Even a Nobel Peace Prize winner can’t avoid a pat-down.’ Demogoguery? EVEN?!? Even a homeless bum has a right to refuse TSA pat downs either AND rather. We don’t care if Kissinger submits to TSA, nor does this justify the existence of the TSA.

A supposed ‘personality’ submitting to a pat down by TSA in a highly publicised and high profile feature on MSM, cannot speak for 99% of people who do not want that. If 99% of the people do not want that, TSA will not exist.Vote properly moron Americans. And who cares if Congress enjoys submitting to the TSA? TSA cannot speak for anyone who does not want their privacy invaded.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” Princess Theodora of Greece- 07 December 2011 / 20:12:16  GRReporter

Theodora as Alison Montgomery in the series “The Bold and the Beautiful”, Photo: nypost.com

The youngest daughter of the last King of Greece Constantine, Theodora has begun her career in show business.

The episodes of the soap “The Bold and the Beautiful”, which is broadcasted in hundreds of countries,
started on Monday.

The 28-year-old blond princess who uses the name Theodora Greece appears as Alison Montgomery, secretary of Bill Spencer, whose role is played by Don Diamond.

The scene is as follows: Dressed completely in pink, she appears in Bill’s office, bringing a press kit featuring an alluring photo of his daughter-in-law Steffy, for whom he still has romantic feelings.

“Mr. Spencer, I wanted to drop this off to you,” says Alison. “This is the latest press kit for Forrester’s ‘Intimate’ campaign… I know of your interest in the subject matter,” she adds.

“Yes, my son’s wife. You can just put it down here – and you can go,” answers Bill Spencer.

The spokeswoman for the soap saga that has continued for decades now said that Theodora will appear in the role of Alison in other episodes and that she will have “meatier scenes”.

Apart from “The Bold and the Beautiful”, the Princess of Greece and Denmark appears as Peggy in the big screen remake of the popular, in the 60s, TV series “The Big Valley” with Jessica Lange and Richard Dreyfuss.

Theodora also plays in the film “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” and will appear in “Little Boy”, also starring Kevin James from King Queen and Emily Watson. The film is due out next year.

The princess dreaming of a career in Hollywood was born in 1983 and she is the next to the last child of the Greek royal family. She graduated in performing arts after two years at the Northeastern University in Boston and four years at Brown University, member of the so-called Ivy League.

Joan tweets in fury at Theresa May over Heathrow hold-up… And look out Home Secretary, she has 68,000 followers – by James Slack – PUBLISHED: 18:05 GMT, 15 May 2012 | UPDATED: 06:57 GMT, 16 May 2012

Joan Collins yesterday joined the attack on Britain’s shambolic  border controls after getting  stuck in a queue of ‘thousands’ of  travellers at Heathrow.

The actress took to Twitter to complain about the delays to Home Secretary Theresa May.

Her intervention – read by her 68,000 followers – came as MPs were grilling the immigration minister about continuing chaos at Britain’s ports and airports.

Tweeting mad: Joan Collins went online to complain as soon as she arrived back in London

Miss Collins, 78, who fronted an advertising campaign for BA in the 1980s, said: ‘Arrived LHR after great trip on @British_Airways but 1000s waiting at passport  control – listen up Ms. May – need more officers!’

Miss Collins flew in on a BA flight from Los Angeles that arrived at Heathrow  Terminal 5 at lunchtime. Airport staff said queues yesterday were not as bad as on Monday but they could ‘ebb and flow’.

Heathrow operator BAA said: ‘The queues have been markedly reduced in recent days since the problems at  immigration became more high profile.’

Miss Collins’s comments overshadowed an attempt by ministers to get on the front foot over airport queues, which they sought to blame on a string of factors – including the wind.

Immigration minister Damian Green told the home affairs committee that even if all passport controls were fully manned,  passengers could still face delays depending on the amount of time between arrivals.

He said: ‘That will depend on the wind, over which . . . airlines and the Border Force don’t have the control.’

Labour said: ‘At every turn this Tory-led Government wants to blame the wind, the weather – anything but themselves.

‘You don’t have to be a mathematician to work out that if you cut the number of staff too far too fast, it will take longer to get people through immigration.’ In his evidence session, Mr Green attached some of the blame for queues to the airlines, saying three times as many passengers arrived at Heathrow on Monday morning than were expected.

On Friday, the Border Force was told to expect 2,500 passengers between 6am and 9am on Monday. This rose to 5,000 at six hours’ notice, but in reality 7,500 passengers turned up, said Mr Green.

‘The better the information the Border Force can have from the airlines, the more likely it is the right numbers of people will be at the right desks at the right time,’ he added.

But MPs criticised the way the borders are run. Committee chairman Keith Vaz said that, on a visit to Stansted Airport, he had seen passengers queuing from the passport desks to the plane.

Just half of the desks handling EU passengers, and a quarter of those for non-EU travellers, were staffed last Sunday.

Mr Vaz said: ‘Most of these were British holidaymakers. I felt pretty ashamed as a British MP watching them . . . trying to get back into the country.’

He pointed out that special electronic gates that allow pre-screened passengers to pass through were switched off at midnight each night.

This means passengers arriving in the early hours must join the regular queue instead.

No cure-all: Immigration Minister Damian Green, pictured at Terminal 3 of Heathrow Airport, told MPs the scale of the problem would depend largely on landing times affected by wind

The runways at Heathrow will be used more flexibly for take-offs and landings in a trial aimed at cutting delays. Usually one runway is used only for take-offs, and the other for landings. But the trial, starting in July, will investigate if the runways can be used for both take-offs and landings.

Joan ‘F—in’ Collins can well afford a private jet and a private airstrip alongside so many Alec Baldwins and Gagas. Use that money to raise yourself above the ‘masses’ who need to use the TSA dominated airport entertainer plutocrats! Meanwhile the alternative to spare the locals the TSA abuses, is to have separate local airports which serve only local-to-foreign flights from ‘international only’ airports.

Topless Ukraine activists open anti-Euro soccer campaign – May 12, 2012

Security guards detain a demonstrating activist from women’s rights organisation Femen near the Euro 2012 trophy during its unveiling to the public in central Kiev May 12, 2012.

KIEV, May 12 – A Ukrainian women’s rights activist stripped to the waist and seized the Euro-2012 soccer trophy while it was on public display in Kiev today in a protest against the exploitation of women during the forthcoming championship.

The young woman, 23-year-old Yulia Kovpachik, strode up to the silver trophy, which was on display as a tourist attraction in central Kiev, ostensibly to be photographed alongside it like hundreds of other sightseers.

But she then pulled down her red T-shirt to reveal the words “Fuck Euro 2012” scrawled on her chest. As she grabbed hold of the cup with both hands, she was seized by security guards, who appeared to have had advanced warning of the protest.

They covered her with a sheet and took her off to a waiting police car.

The protest appeared to be the first action in a campaign against the championship by Femen, a Kiev-based women’s rights groups which regularly stages bare-breast protests in Ukraine – and sometimes beyond – to highlight what it sees as political injustice, social abuse and the exploitation of women in Ukraine.

Femen says Euro-2012, which Ukraine is co-hosting with Poland next month with the final in Kiev on July 1, will be a magnet for sex tourists – one of the group’s main targets.

Organisers expect Euro-2012 to attract about one million foreign tourists.

Conscious of Ukraine’s growing reputation as a new destination for sex tourism, Euro-2012 organisers say they are taking steps to curb prostitution during the month-long tournament.

After Kovpachik’s protest, Femen activist Olexandra Shevchenko told reporters: “We came here today to stop this Euro fan low-life from making a bordello out of Ukraine.”

City authorities have mounted the Henri Delaunay trophy – which weighs 7.6kg and is 60 centimetres high – in a temporary display area on Kiev’s Independence Square.

Hundreds of sightseers were queuing up under the blazing sun for souvenir photographs alongside it when Kovpachik staged her demonstration.

Independence Square itself will be the centre of a huge ‘fan-zone’ during Euro-2012, capable of holding tens of thousands of football supporters. – Reuters

I speak for the human rights conscious Johns who would never knowingly indulge in trafficked persons, and also for the consensual or lifestyle sex workers when I say to the Ukrainian ‘topless’ activists :

a) please leave mainstream adult services industry alone and do some real work by lobbying for legalising red light districts

b) help identify abusers by posing as prostitutes or getting your friends to pose a clients to ferret out trafficked and non-consensual persons in sex work

c) developing and funding quick and easy to use disease tests

; instead of running amok while naked against those poor football fans.

The Euro Soccer John influx is the equivalent of a ‘bonus’ for sex workers in any country. The state also should legalise prostitution and give insurance and pensions to those who have gone at regular levels for checkups and worked for a set period of years or have serviced a set number of clients – every 3000 should provide a single year of pension?

In many ways these women’s contribution to society is incalculable as they give the lower earners who cannot afford marriage some form of relaxation and a who knows a geisha (temporary wife) type relationship-friendship. Something to look forward to at the end of the work shift and socialise about. This is a different form of caretaking profession, for what ails the soul of poverty, much like nurses take care of the ill. Think through on the issues properly if you want to make a difference you topless feminists! Persecuting Johns is wrong. Persecuting those identified as traffickers is right. Running around naked instead of advocating nudist zones to run around naked in is also wrong.

I’d say ‘Femen’ in appearing naked among massive crowds is expressing a hidden desire for either nudist legal zones, legalised public sex venues or sex orgy clubs. Start a legal sex club based around orgies or legalise dogging and sex booths in red light districts for Ukraine. Do some real work not foment meaningless chaos (some chaos can be meaningful, but maybe this was a cry for ‘instructions’ that I now give . . . )! Gotta love those Freudian slips! Create the spaces for everyone FEMEN, not take spaces away from society! John-space in the form of Red Light Districts for consensual sex workers and their clients is NOT trafficking and does not deserve to be lumped together via poorly thought protests like these!

In the realm of the senses – Toshio Saeki, Japan’s master of erotic illustration, devours the world with his demented images of outre – by Stephen Lemons Thursday, Feb 8, 2001 8:33 PM UTC

Think of Toshio Saeki’s work as a gaping, red maw consuming all women (and some men), salivating over their bodies and licking them into a sexual frenzy before swallowing them whole, like giant pieces of sashimi (look up the term : Vore). Japanese schoolgirls in uniforms, elderly matrons with wrinkled skin, attractive young women in kimonos and the occasional horny businessman or samurai — all are sucked into Saeki’s imaginary, Jabba the Hut-like pie hole, forced down his rapacious gullet and chased back with copious quantities of sake.

Saeki, 66, is the godfather of Japanese erotica — the one illustrator in the frenetic, oversexed, comics-crazy nation whose imagination outpaces all others. For decades, the art cognoscenti of Japan and elsewhere have hailed him as a psychosexual dream weaver who traverses all taboos with oozing, bloody scenes of insatiable carnality. Now he’s being rediscovered by young adults in America and Europe for whom Japanese illustration, anime (animated cartoons) and manga (comic books) are perpetual sources of fascination.

Sexual incontinence is Saeki’s overriding theme. In collections of his drawings such as “Chimushi I & II” and “Toshio Saeki: The Early Works” (both published in Japan by Treville Co.), he has navigated the outer limits of sexual obsession with a monomaniacal intensity. In France, his monographs have sold more than 20,000 copies. And Last Gasp, Saeki’s distributor in the United States, has difficulty keeping his books in stock. “Chimushi,” a two-volume set issued in the mid-1990s, completely sold out its first run here and is now a collector’s item.

In Saeki’s bestiary, immense turtles, octopuses and slugs ravish ecstatic Japanese maidens. Japanese goblins, known as tengu, poke their crimson, Pinocchio-like proboscises into the vaginas of willing teenage girls. Pockmarked dwarfs with misshapen, encephalitic heads gangbang young virgins. And hideous, hirsute trolls gnaw on umbilical cords that are still attached to mother and child.

Just when you believe Saeki has shown you his most outré image, you turn the page and find additional macabre hallucinations of murder and lust. In one, a Japanese schoolgirl flies down a road on her bike, her haunches lifted in the air and her skirt flapping in the wind. She looks behind her in horror to see that her bicycle seat has morphed into a man’s groaning face. In another, a young woman sips green tea as she rubs the freshly decapitated head of a soldier against her genitals, his body still upright beside her. There are drawings of necrophiliacs humping corpses and of crazed onanists sawing limbs off others with which to masturbate.

Unusual sexual fantasies are certainly common in the world of Japanese manga and anime. And popular adult anime (sometimes referred to as hentai) such as “La Blue Girl,” “Imma Youjo: Erotic Temptress” and “Twin Angels” can be found on the Web as well as in video stores in major American cities.

In addition, a number of photographers and artists in Japan are renowned for their explorations of fringe sexuality. There’s Hajime Sorayama, whose cyberwomen appear regularly in Penthouse; Masaaki Toyoura, whose bondage photos can be viewed in various Larry Flynt publications; Yoshifumi Hayashi, the master of erotic pencil art, whose drawings delve into the nether regions of coprophilia; and Nobuyoshi Araki, the photographer whose book about the Tokyo sex trade, “Tokyo Lucky Hole,” is truly a pervert’s delight.

Still, Saeki is in a class all by himself. Erick Gilbert, an editor and Saeki expert at Last Gasp, points out that Saeki’s art transcends that of his contemporaries.

“It’s like the man has a direct link to his unconscious, and to the collective unconscious of the Japanese people,” says Gilbert. “He can mix myth, that dream quality and pure libido. There are very few people who do that. I remember one image of a child standing outside of his parents’ bedroom. His parents are sitting on the bed, and the man has his hands between the legs of the woman. But the woman, instead of having a vulva there, has a face, and the man’s fingers are inside its mouth. That’s a powerful image from the unconscious, the vagina dentata.”

Saeki’s work is quintessentially Japanese — from the ethnicity of his subjects to his portrayal of traditional housing with futons, tatami mats and sliding paper doors to his borrowing of various monsters from Japanese mythology. The theme of obsessive sexuality leading to madness and death is common in the film and literature of Japan, and there’s a long tradition of Japanese shunga, or erotic prints and paintings, that has been traced back at least to the ukiyo-e (floating world paintings) of the Edo period (1603-1867) in books such as “Sex and the Floating World” by Timon Screech. Screech’s book, for instance, contains shunga prints of vaginal inspections (with a cervix’s-eye view), dogs humping women and men with colossal, spurting cocks.

“If you look at Saeki’s art outside of its cultural sphere, you may be troubled by its violence. But once you go inside that cultural sphere, you know that this violence is well-understood, that ‘it’s only lines on paper,’ to quote cartoonist Robert Crumb. This extreme imagery of Japanese artists, and their characteristic need to go as far as possible, can be traced several centuries back to the so-called bloody ukiyo-e of the 19th century. A number of examples from that era are very violent — with characters being tied up and swords put to them. That’s part of this strain of art,” asserts Gilbert.

However, even in Japan, Saeki’s morbid aesthetic delicacies have earned him a reputation as an iconoclast. Speaking to me by phone from his isolated home in the mountains of Chiba prefecture, near Tokyo, Saeki explains that he has run afoul of Japanese censors in the past.

“My books have received cautions from the local government agency that monitors such things,” says Saeki. “If you receive three cautions in a year, your book is prohibited from being sold in a bookstore. Of course, my publications have been unpopular with the police, but not enough to be banned. At one time, in the late ’70s to early ’80s, I couldn’t draw the schoolgirl images that are so popular now. Publishers were afraid to publish them. The media had labeled me ‘schoolgirl Saeki.’

“Today, such images are much more accepted. I’ve been lucky to have my work published in erotic publications as well as art publications. Not all artists who do this kind of work have been accepted in both circles. Not that I’m a household name or anything. It’s interesting, when I have a new book come out, most of the fan mail my publisher receives is from doctors, lawyers and college professors. [Laughs] I find that very amusing.”

Saeki perceives himself as connected to Japan’s shunga tradition. He mentions an artist of the Meiji period, Yoshitoshi, who did the same kind of work. And he cites ukiyo-e artist Hokusai’s famous image of a woman having sex with an octopus, which he did not copy directly, he says, though he was aware of the reference he was making. But Saeki was not always a maestro of shunga art. Rather, his evolution into the most important erotic Japanese artist of his generation occurred haphazardly.

Saeki grew up mostly in Osaka. He studied art in high school, and after graduating pursued graphic design. He worked briefly for an advertising company, but disliked the job. At 24, he took off for Tokyo to try his hand at freelance illustration. With money he had saved, he holed up in a small apartment to develop his portfolio. It was then that he seriously began to create erotica.

“I did some fantasy erotic drawings and put to paper some scary dreams I remembered from my childhood. The images just flowed. During my teenage years at the art high school, many of the boys had an interest in erotic art. I was good at copying shunga, and the other boys would ask me to draw dirty pictures. I became quite popular because of it. So these images were in the back of my mind. I think it’s just my personality. When I was a teenager, there were boys who noticed when the wind blew girls’ skirts up and those who didn’t notice at all. Well, I was a boy who noticed,” says Saeki.

During the 1960s and 1970s, Saeki did illustrations for a then popular Japanese youth magazine, Heibon Punch, and from there his career took off. Galleries started showing his work, and he published his first books. Underground writers and artists hailed his outlandish creations, and to this day he retains the fanatical devotion of erotic art aficionados.

Late LSD guru Timothy Leary penned an introduction to “Chimushi I and II,” describing the artist as an “erotic engineer” who “weaves webs of designed dementia.” Yet Saeki himself realizes that his audience is limited, especially in the relatively repressed United States. But this might be changing.

“There’s a new generation interested in Japanese things now, especially Japanese animation. For instance, there’s a writer in New York who plans to use one of my paintings on a book cover, and there was a rock festival recently in California that used one as a giant backdrop,” he says. “I’m also getting more calls for gallery shows in America, so my work is receiving more exposure there now.”

I wonder aloud if Saeki is a sex maniac. After all, why does he always paint and draw images filled with sex and death?

“Hmm, why do I?” he asks, pausing for a moment. “I’ve never really thought about it. I guess I’m just mischievous and like to surprise people. I don’t really do art for self-expression. I’m more conscious of the people who see my work. I see it as a form of entertainment. It can’t be boring; it must be entertaining. The more I produce the work, the more I want to top myself each time, to shock people even more. I’m not a violent person myself. I don’t engage in the morbid acts I depict.”

A night at the vibrator museum : Early vibrators were hand-cranked, two-person jobs — and prescribed by doctors. How far we’ve come since then – by Tracy Clark-Flory – Sunday, May 20, 2012 12:00 AM UTC

[A night at the vibrator museum] (Credit: Antique Vibrator Museum)

I can now say that I’ve used a turn-of-the-century vibrator — on my hand, but still.

The silver, hand-cranked contraption is usually kept behind glass at Good Vibrations’ Antique Vibrator Museum in San Francisco — but staff sexologist Carol Queen made a rare exception. “This is very special,” she whispered, unlocking the case and carefully pulling out Dr. Johansen’s Auto Vibrator, a relic from 1904. The “auto” part is not so much: It was a two-person job, with her having to crank the device’s handle to get it thrumming. Pressing my finger tips to its inch-wide circular platform of pleasure, I was pleasantly surprised by its power.

As I was by the two other vintage vibrators that I got to try out — the White Cross Electric Vibrator from 1917, which has a pronged aperture that makes it seem like the ancestor of Jimmyjane’s Form 2, and the Beautysafe Vibrator from the 1940s, which is reminiscent in look, feel and sound to a car waxer.

The U.S. release this week of “Hysteria,” a Maggie Gyllenhaal flick about a Victorian-era doctor who invents an electric massager and uses it to bring about “paroxysms” of relief in female patients with “hysteria,” seemed like a good excuse to get a private tour of the museum, which provided vibes that appear in the film, to learn about the history that’s left out of the movie’s fictionalized story line — and, of course, to try out antique pleasure devices while on the clock.

While the movie is set in the 19th century, doctors’ “manual manipulation” as a treatment for female hysteria goes back as far as the second century. “That took too long,” said Queen. “So doctors started training midwives to do it.” In Rachel P. Maines’ “The Technology of Orgasm: ‘Hysteria,’ the Vibrator, and Women’s Sexual Satisfaction,” she quotes a 1653 medical book that advises:

When these symptoms indicate, we think it necessary to ask a midwife to assist, so that she can massage the genitalia with one finger inside, using oil of lilies, musk root, crocus, or [something] similar. And in this way the afflicted woman can be aroused to the paroxysm.

Of course, this paroxysm was orgasm, but it was rarely acknowledged as such. Instead, it was said to be the exorcism of hysteria, a vague, catch-all diagnosis for female ailments thought to arise from a displaced uterus or, charmingly, a “wandering womb.” “Some of these women probably had PTSD, some of them were overworked, some of them had extreme stress in their lives, some of them almost certainly had sexual issues going on,” Queen explains. As Maines points out, “many of its classic symptoms are those of chronic arousal: Anxiety, sleeplessness, irritability, nervousness, erotic fantasy, sensations of heaviness in the abdomen, lower pelvic edema, and vaginal lubrication.” Married women were often given the prescription of sex with their husbands.

Eventually, doctors turned to technology to speed up the laborious treatment. “It started with hydraulic devices, water jets, but that really only worked well at spas,” said Queen. In 1869, an American physician patented the Manipulator, a padded table with a steam-powered vibrating mound that rested between the legs. A decade later, British physician Joseph Mortimer Granville – who’s at the center of “Hysteria,” albeit heavily fictionalized — patented a battery-operated vibrator for treatment of muscle pain. Interestingly, he was vehemently against the device being used for hysteria. He wrote, “I have avoided, and shall continue to avoid the treatment of women by percussion, simply because I do not wish to be hoodwinked, and help to mislead others, by the vagaries of the hysterical state.”

Ads selling vibrators as home appliances began to appear in women’s magazines, often showing “women in attractive nightclothes, using it on their chest,” Queen said. “You see facial massage shown from time to time.” These spots referred to them as “aids that every woman appreciates” and promised “all the pleasures of youth … will throb within you.” But when vibrators started showing up in stag films in the 1920s, the ads started to disappear, Queen says.

“Within the next 10 years or so, the doctors close up shop,” she said, perhaps in part because it became impossible to deny the sexual nature of these therapies. “In 1952, hysteria is taken out of medical books,” Queen explained. “The medical associations voted to say, ‘Nothing to see here, there’s really not a disease – no, no, no, we haven’t been treating this with clitoral and vulva massage.’”

Vibrators were still sold direct to consumers, but manufacturers made no mention of hysteria and instead “talked about body massage and vague promises of health, vigor and beauty.” The ’60s did away with the subtlety and euphemisms: Maines explains in her book, “When the vibrator reemerged during the 1960s, it was no longer a medical instrument; it had been democratized to consumers to such an extent that by the ’70s it was openly marketed as a sex aid.”

Asked whether doctors or patients saw the treatment as sexual, Queen said, “One of the schools of thought is, ‘How could they not?’ They’re touching the genitals, she starts to sweat and flail around and vocalize and her breathing changes and she gets a flush.” But others argue that “the definition of sex and sexual functioning for a woman was so associated with intercourse,” it was so male-centric, that this treatment, which was most often external, wasn’t seen as sexual. As Maines puts it, “Since no penetration was involved, believers in the hypothesis that only penetration was sexually gratifying to women could argue that nothing sexual could be occurring when their patients experienced the hysterical paroxysm during treatment.”

Paradoxically, Queen explains that hysteria was overtly linked to sex “in that they said women without husbands who were spinsters or widows or whose husbands had become incapacitated were more likely to suffer from it,” she said. “So there was a subtext of, ‘What this lady needs is a good fuck and, sadly, she can’t have one — but this is the next best thing.’” Maines attributes the demand for the treatment to two sources: “The proscription on female masturbation as unchaste and possibly unhealthful, and the failure of androcentrically defined sexuality to produce orgasm regularly in most women.”

We haven’t exactly escaped the expectation that women should be able to climax from penetration alone, but we’re slowly improving on that front — and the mainstreaming of vibrators has played a big part. That point was only driven home as I left the museum, which is located in the back of a Good Vibrations store, and walked past scores of sleek and sexy toys in every color of the rainbow, all unabashedly advertised as what they are: Tools for sexual pleasure.

On the rack: A cultural history of breasts : Did breasts evolve for lactation or to enhance sex appeal? A new book explores why they matter – by Tracy Clark-Flory – Thursday, May 10, 2012 12:00 AM UTC

It’s hard to be boobs. Sure, breasts are cherished as givers of milk and the pinnacle of sex appeal, but the modern world hasn’t been good to mammaries.

As Florence Williams writes in “Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History,” they’re the most tumor-prone organ in the human body. They “soak up pollution like a pair of soft sponges,” and transmit environmental toxins to babies through breast milk. “Breasts are bellwethers for the changing health of people,” she says. While we’ve “genetically modified our crops to be able to protect them from the ill effects of pesticides,” Williams writes, “we haven’t yet figured out how to modify our breasts.” Aside from using saline and silicone, of course.

Speaking of, breast implants are more popular than ever: It’s the most common form of plastic surgery, above even nose jobs and liposuction. Even cosmetic enhancement notwithstanding, breasts are bigger than ever, and girls are getting them at increasingly younger ages. These recent dramatic changes are the heft of Williams’ book, although she also covers evolutionary basics, like why we have them, what they’re made of and how they work. It’s an interesting and engaging read peppered with factoids the kid from “Jerry Maguire” would no doubt appreciate (e.g., “the average breast weighs just over a pound”). Occasionally, it veers into technical territory that will put some readers to sleep, but overall it’s a much-needed look at why breasts matter more than we realize, even in our boob-obsessed society.

I spoke with Williams by phone about the myth of the perfect pair, growing bra sizes and toxic breast milk.

One of the trickiest questions posed by the book is the simple one of why breasts exist. After all of your research, where do you stand on that question?

It’s a pretty contentious debate and surprisingly so. I think both sides have some biases and also some logic behind them, but where I see it coming down is between natural selection — like, “Are these breasts for women and their babies?” — or sexual selection, as in, “Are they signals for men?” Ultimately, I really fall down on “Let’s look at how breasts work and what they’re made out of.”

So, for me, it made sense that these are naturally selected organs, which is true for mammary glands in every other mammal that we know of. There are no other mammals in which breasts are sexually selected. It just makes sense that in our deep evolutionary past we really needed those extra few percentages of fat, and breasts gave us a place to put that, and really helped gestate and lactate the human infant, which has these unique fat requirements. The mammary gland in the breast in humans is filled with estrogen receptors and those actually make fat. There’s this relationship between fat and estrogen, and where there’s estrogen, that’s going to tell cells to start storing fat, and as there’s more fat, that’s going to help make more estrogen.

So it’s possible that breasts are the result of natural selection but they also play their part in sexual selection?

Yeah, absolutely. There’s no doubt at all that a lot of men are really, really attracted to breasts! But it could be that that attraction came later or was secondary, and it’s never really been satisfactorily proven that all men in all cultures across all times are obsessed with breasts.

It so totally goes against common wisdom, but it’s common wisdom that hasn’t been proven?

It hasn’t been proven. In fact we have such strong cultural biases about breasts that it’s easy to see how some of these anthropologists may just be projecting their own beliefs back into evolutionary times, and that’s just a classic no-no. We don’t really have fossil evidence of when breasts evolved because you can’t dig up a fossil of an early human and know what her cup size was.

So, there’s no “perfect” breast in terms of male sexual preference?

Well, certainly Hollywood and plastic surgeons would like us to believe that there’s a universally preferred large breast, but the evidence just doesn’t really bear that out. There are a lot of men out there who like small- or medium-size breasts, and there are some men out there who don’t seem particularly interested in breasts. In fact, breasts are so varied in humans that if there really was this evolutionary or even sexually selected preference for large breasts, you’d think we’d see a lot more of them. Women with small breasts are just as capable of nursing infants and that’s why those traits persisted.

Speaking of plastic surgeons: You actually had one evaluate your own breasts for the book. What was that like?

It was really bizarre and funny. I always thought my breasts were sort of perfectly fine. I kind of went in there thinking, “Oh, he’s gonna tell me that, ‘Congratulations, your breasts are fine,’ because he’s this great judge of breasts and presumably he’s seen all these incredible deformities.” I walk in there and take off my robe and he squeezes me and squishes me and pulls out a measuring tape and gives his final pronouncement, “Well, let me just say you would be a perfect candidate for augmentation.” I had to just crack up. So much of that industry is about the soft sell — they’re just so good at making women think that they’re not good enough the way they are.

When did breast implant mania really begin?

The first silicon breast implant was performed in 1962, so 50 years ago. It was up and running pretty quickly after that. It was particularly popular among women who made their living onstage — the go-go dancers and the burlesque dancers and the topless dancers and then Hollywood. Eventually it leaked into the broader culture, and certainly by the ’70s and ’80s women were going for this. Then there was the implant scare of the ’90s, in which a lot of women had problems with their implants, and the FDA actually banned them for 14 years. But now they’re back; they’ve never really been proven to be linked to disease or cancer. In fact, more women are getting implants now than ever before — over 300,000 a year.

And breasts are getting bigger in general, not simply because of plastic surgery. What’s going on there?

The main factor there is, of course, the American diet. Women’s bodies are getting bigger and their breasts are getting bigger along with it. Men are getting bigger, too! In fact, men are getting breasts more often and male breast reduction surgery is becoming more and more popular.

There also may be other factors at play that have to do with hormones in food and birth control pills and in hormone replacement therapy, and of course we have all these estrogenic chemicals in our environment. All of those things appear to be interacting with our breasts on some level.

Somewhat related, why are girls experiencing puberty and getting breasts earlier and earlier?

I would say similar reasons. We don’t know for sure, but it appears that diet is the major factor there. Girls are sort of undergoing what’s sometimes called over-nutrition. A third of kids now are overweight or obese. You’re also seeing skinny girls getting breasts earlier, so the obesity theory does not seem to fully explain the phenomenon. There are researchers out there that have tried to examine the role of chemicals and pharmaceuticals, but the jury is still out.

Turning to the function of breasts for feeding infants, one of the purposes of breasts that’s not actually up for debate: How and why did lactation evolve?

Lactation evolved 200 million years ago, even before there were mammals as such. It evolved in the precursor to mammals, probably not as a food but as an anti-infection substance. It helped fight pathogens and helped the immune system, and many of those qualities have been conserved. Breast milk today is not just filled with nutritional substances but it’s filled with these immune system-boosting substances that scientists are just beginning to understand. There are proteins and enzymes and complex sugars that are really quite amazing at inhibiting parasites and killing E.coli on contact. It also seems to be filled with bacteria too, and so it may be inoculating the infant’s immune system or educating it as to which bacteria are good and which are bad.

It’s an amazing, complex, highly evolved substance. It’s the only food on the planet that’s really meant to be eaten by humans.

It seems that nearly everything breast-related is controversial and lactation is no exception. What’s your position on the breast-is-best debate?

Really, throughout human history there have been women who just didn’t want to breast-feed, and I totally get it. Breast-feeding can be really hard. One of the earliest professions was not prostitution but actually being a wet nurse.

Certainly in Western societies it’s really safe to be raised on formula. Where you see the more dramatic benefits from breast milk are with preemies; they do much, much better. When you go to developing countries where the water isn’t safe, formula isn’t a great option, and you can really use these extra immune-boosting benefits because of these pathogen rich environments. It makes sense from a public health standpoint to really advocate breast milk in developing countries. In our country, what would be great is to really support women who want to breast-feed through better workplace policies.

We see negative entities in breast milk as well. The weight of the book is devoted to ways that our breasts are, as you write, “the catchment for our environmental trespasses.” Why are we seeing toxins show up in breasts and breast milk, of all places?

A lot of these substances, if they exist in the breast they also exist in the blood and in a lot of cells in our body. But many of them are attracted to fat and our breasts are among the fattiest organs we have next to our brains. So breasts are these soft sponges and they soak up a lot of things in our environment. They’re incredibly good at converting these substances into breast milk. It’s a little creepy.

What about the transmission to nursing babies?

It appears that the benefits of breast milk still by far outweigh the risks, and even though we have these unnatural substances in our breast milk it still exists for the most part in small quantities. Nonetheless, we don’t really understand what the health effects of this are. It seems wise to look harder at these chemicals. If they’re not proven safe, maybe we should try to use something else. It would be great to provide greater incentives for manufacturers to put safer chemicals on the marketplace.

I’m so curious what you think of sexualized attempts at raising awareness about breast cancer — ads like the “Save the Boobs” PSA, which pictured a pair of bouncing bikini-clad breasts, and the explosion of “I (heart) boobies” bracelets.

I guess the sexualization of breasts is a reality and we’re not going to change that any time soon. I did like that those ads tried to reach a younger audience, so there you have it. Breasts are filled with contradictions and conflicting messages, but the more we can understand their complexity and appreciate that complexity, the (psychologically) healthier we’ll be down the road.

Russian protesters test Putin’s police – May 14 2012 at 12:14am – by Nastassia Astrasheuskaya – Associated Press

Marchers make their way along a street in downtown Moscow during a demonstration led by opposition literary activists. Around 10 000 people took part, skirting the law by remaining silent and carrying no posters.

Moscow – Almost 10 000 people staged a mass “stroll” through central Moscow on Sunday to test the state’s tolerance a week after police beat and scattered demonstrators upset over Vladimir Putin’s return to the presidency.

With few police in evidence, demonstrators gathered at a statue of revered poet Alexander Pushkin and walked down Moscow’s Boulevard Ring to the site of an Occupy-style, 24-hour protest two kilometres away. Police took no action.

“We are all here because we want justice in the country, we want an honest transition of power, we don’t want a throne succession,” said Nina, 45, a foreign language teacher who gave only her first name.

President from 2000-2008 and prime minister until his inauguration to a six-year Kremlin term on May 7, Putin has angered Russians who want change and fear the continuation of his rule will bring stagnation and repression.

Some 10 000 people turned out for the “test stroll”, some wearing white ribbons reading “Russia without Putin”.

It took place a week after police clashed with demonstrators on the eve of Putin’s May 7 inauguration, beating some on the head with batons in the worst violence since a series of protests started in December.

Riot police detained more than 400 people at the May 6 protest and hundreds more on inauguration day, when they cleared streets near the path of Putin’s convoy of peaceful protesters and bystanders, and grabbed people sitting at a sidewalk cafe.

Two opposition leaders detained last week, Alexei Navalny and Sergei Udaltsov, are serving 15-day jail terms.

Following the crackdown, Boris Akunin, a popular detective novelist who has become a Kremlin critic, called for the event on Sunday to test whether Muscovites would be allowed to peacefully walk in their city.

The unsanctioned mass walk snarled traffic – and a woman handing out white ribbons advertised them as “free tickets to a police van ride” – but police left demonstrators alone and there were no reports of detentions.

“There are no police vans here, no police, no helicopters. They really let us walk free in the city now,” said Nina.

Demonstrators ended their walk at the site of a round-the-clock protest dubbed Occupy Abai, named after a monument to a Kazakh poet that is its focal point. Akunin was met with applause at the monument and declared the stroll a success.

“We can all congratulate each other, we have re-established a law. In Russia, there is a law protecting demonstrations,” Gennady Gudkov, a lawmaker with the opposition Just Russia party, told the crowd. “It was forgotten and now it is revived.”

The turnout on Sunday will please opposition leaders eager to maintain momentum, but the fate of the round-the-clock protest – where the crowd has numbered from dozens to 2 000 – is unclear.

Putin, 59, has largely ignored the unrest that greeted his inauguration, the latest since anger boiled over in December over allegations of fraud in a parliamentary election.

But his spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, has been quoted as saying that the police had acted too softly and has hinted the round-the-clock protest could be dispersed.

Gudkov’s son, Dmitry, also a lawmaker, invited people to meet on Tuesday by a Karl Marx monument near the Kremlin and said the round-the-clock protest would continue until at least June 12, when the next big opposition rally is planned. – Reuters

The same 10,000 people should go round collecting voters to displace MPs who put Putin in power. What does this march achieve? Nothing on paper, nothing in black and white. Please use the legal and binding method. Marching peacefully or violently really does nothing legally! Civilisation and ousting of dictators is via laws, not migrations and cirumambulations.

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?

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.

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!

‘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.

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.

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.

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’.

The practice of hereditary ambition and home-grown royalty demolishes the basic premise of equality – by Walter Rodgers – Published: 00:00 April 13, 2012 – Gulf News

Political dynasties betray American values

Once again, America’s leading political dynasties are holding high the family standard in an election year.

In Massachusetts, another Kennedy is racing toward Congress. This time, it’s Democrat Joseph P. Kennedy III, the grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy, hoping to fill the vacancy of retiring Representative Barney Frank.

“I’m very proud of my family’s record of public service to the Commonwealth and the country,” the young Kennedy has said. I don’t doubt his desire for service, but he’s also trading on the family name — and fundraising and other powers and privileges that go with it. That’s not what the Founders envisioned for the new republic.

Meanwhile, in Texas and Florida, the Bushes are using their endorsement clout in an attempt to wrap up the messy Republican primary. It’s time for “the party to get behind” Mitt Romney, former president George H.W. Bush says.

His wife, Barbara — who referred to her son George W. as “the chosen one” before he even became president — has recorded a robocall for Romney’s campaign. Jeb Bush, another son and a former governor of Florida, has also endorsed Romney. (A reasonable question: If Romney loses to Obama, will Jeb run in 2016? It’s a job he has said he has wanted since he was a kid.)

The US has seen its share of political families: the Adamses, at the beginning, and in modern times, the Browns of California; the Cuomos of New York; the Daleys of Chicago; Ron Paul and his son Rand, now a US senator from Kentucky; not to mention Romney and his late governor father, George.

Sense of entitlement

But over the past half century, no two families have been as powerful as the Bushes and Kennedys. They share deep New England roots and a seeming sense of entitlement to the White House.

The Kennedy taste for dynastic prerogative has at times been shameless. Senator Robert Kennedy challenged a sitting president of his own party and tried to seize the presidential nomination — seeking to recapture his brother John’s lost legacy and rekindle the myth of Camelot. (Parallels can be drawn with the younger Bush president in attempting to finish off his father’s war with Saddam Hussain’s Iraq.)

Even after the Kennedys suffered two assassinations, the family’s ambition continued to soar. Brother Edward tried (and failed) to unseat his party’s president, Democrat Jimmy Carter. So strong was the family’s belief that the White House belonged to them, that a defeated Teddy petulantly refused to shake hands with Carter at the 1980 Democratic convention.

The youngest Kennedy brother never made it to the Oval Office, but he helped Barack Obama get there, acting as kingmaker along with his niece Caroline, as they pointedly favoured Obama over Hillary Rodham Clinton (from a would-be dynasty).

This practice of hereditary ambition and home-grown royalty betrays a basic premise of the American Revolution, “that all men are created equal.”

Andrew Jackson’s defeat of incumbent John Quincy Adams swept away much of Americans earlier faith in ruling families, and successive waves of immigrants made a mockery of it.

The Europeans spent centuries, sometimes knee-deep in blood, eliminating czars and kings. Yet in the past 50 years, America has had to ride out allegations of rape, manslaughter, drug abuse, infidelity, and drunkenness in its ‘royal families’, overlooking all this on the medieval assumption that those with better bloodlines are somehow beyond reproach or the law.

And, like kings of old, today’s royals seek to maintain position and power by plying supporters, friends, and family with gifts, whether they be tax breaks or cabinet posts.

At their peril, they forget that stability in any kingdom involved a delicate balance between the crown and nobility, and the people.

The republic could again use the same disdain for pretence employed by an earlier patriot who once said he wished that “wadding of the cannon fired to salute President [John] Adams would hit him in the seat of the pants.”

The progeny of political families will likely ever seek political power — and the public may well respond with a certain star-struck awe and hope for favourable treatment. But in this country, we ought to judge a candidate on merit. That’s what we were raised on.

Icelandic Anger Brings Debt Forgiveness in Best Recovery Story – by Omar R. Valdimarsso – February 28, 2012, 8:03 AM EST – Businessweek

Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) — Icelanders who pelted parliament with rocks in 2009 demanding their leaders and bankers answer for the country’s economic and financial collapse are reaping the benefits of their anger.

Since the end of 2008, the island’s banks have forgiven loans equivalent to 13 percent of gross domestic product, easing the debt burdens of more than a quarter of the population, according to a report published this month by the Icelandic Financial Services Association.

“You could safely say that Iceland holds the world record in household debt relief,” said Lars Christensen, chief emerging markets economist at Danske Bank A/S in Copenhagen. “Iceland followed the textbook example of what is required in a crisis. Any economist would agree with that.”

The island’s steps to resurrect itself since 2008, when its banks defaulted on $85 billion, are proving effective. Iceland’s economy will this year outgrow the euro area and the developed world on average, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development estimates. It costs about the same to insure against an Icelandic default as it does to guard against a credit event in Belgium. Most polls now show Icelanders don’t want to join the European Union, where the debt crisis is in its third year.

The island’s households were helped by an agreement between the government and the banks, which are still partly controlled by the state, to forgive debt exceeding 110 percent of home values. On top of that, a Supreme Court ruling in June 2010 found loans indexed to foreign currencies were illegal, meaning households no longer need to cover krona losses.

Crisis Lessons

“The lesson to be learned from Iceland’s crisis is that if other countries think it’s necessary to write down debts, they should look at how successful the 110 percent agreement was here,” said Thorolfur Matthiasson, an economics professor at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, in an interview. “It’s the broadest agreement that’s been undertaken.”

Without the relief, homeowners would have buckled under the weight of their loans after the ratio of debt to incomes surged to 240 percent in 2008, Matthiasson said.

Iceland’s $13 billion economy, which shrank 6.7 percent in 2009, grew 2.9 percent last year and will expand 2.4 percent this year and next, the Paris-based OECD estimates. The euro area will grow 0.2 percent this year and the OECD area will expand 1.6 percent, according to November estimates.

Housing, measured as a subcomponent in the consumer price index, is now only about 3 percent below values in September 2008, just before the collapse. Fitch Ratings last week raised Iceland to investment grade, with a stable outlook, and said the island’s “unorthodox crisis policy response has succeeded.”

People Vs Markets

Iceland’s approach to dealing with the meltdown has put the needs of its population ahead of the markets at every turn.

Once it became clear back in October 2008 that the island’s banks were beyond saving, the government stepped in, ring-fenced the domestic accounts, and left international creditors in the lurch. The central bank imposed capital controls to halt the ensuing sell-off of the krona and new state-controlled banks were created from the remnants of the lenders that failed.

Activists say the banks should go even further in their debt relief. Andrea J. Olafsdottir, chairman of the Icelandic Homes Coalition, said she doubts the numbers provided by the banks are reliable.

“There are indications that some of the financial institutions in question haven’t lost a penny with the measures that they’ve undertaken,” she said.

Fresh Demands

According to Kristjan Kristjansson, a spokesman for Landsbankinn hf, the amount written off by the banks is probably larger than the 196.4 billion kronur ($1.6 billion) that the Financial Services Association estimates, since that figure only includes debt relief required by the courts or the government.

“There are still a lot of people facing difficulties; at the same time there are a lot of people doing fine,” Kristjansson said. “It’s nearly impossible to say when enough is enough; alongside every measure that is taken, there are fresh demands for further action.”

As a precursor to the global Occupy Wall Street movement and austerity protests across Europe, Icelanders took to the streets after the economic collapse in 2008. Protests escalated in early 2009, forcing police to use teargas to disperse crowds throwing rocks at parliament and the offices of then Prime Minister Geir Haarde. Parliament is still deciding whether to press ahead with an indictment that was brought against him in September 2009 for his role in the crisis.

A new coalition, led by Social Democrat Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir, was voted into office in early 2009. The authorities are now investigating most of the main protagonists of the banking meltdown.

Legal Aftermath

Iceland’s special prosecutor has said it may indict as many as 90 people, while more than 200, including the former chief executives at the three biggest banks, face criminal charges.

Larus Welding, the former CEO of Glitnir Bank hf, once Iceland’s second biggest, was indicted in December for granting illegal loans and is now waiting to stand trial. The former CEO of Landsbanki Islands hf, Sigurjon Arnason, has endured stints of solitary confinement as his criminal investigation continues.

That compares with the U.S., where no top bank executives have faced criminal prosecution for their roles in the subprime mortgage meltdown. The Securities and Exchange Commission said last year it had sanctioned 39 senior officers for conduct related to the housing market meltdown.

The U.S. subprime crisis sent home prices plunging 33 percent from a 2006 peak. While households there don’t face the same degree of debt relief as that pushed through in Iceland, President Barack Obama this month proposed plans to expand loan modifications, including some principal reductions.

According to Christensen at Danske Bank, “the bottom line is that if households are insolvent, then the banks just have to go along with it, regardless of the interests of the banks.”

Hundreds more bankers are worth multimillions or even billions. Confiscate their wealth, leave them with a few million and every citizen gets their home back, Iceland becomes debt free. End of story. the ‘enemy (economic fifth columnists sabotaging and selling the nation to IMF by being in government in some cases) bankers’ who insist on retaining wealth can claim refugee status at the UN if they don’t like the ruling.

Now, hug vending machine to get a drink – ANI – London, April 13, 2012 – First Published: 19:43 IST(13/4/2012)

Coca-Cola has come up with a very innovative and attention-grabbing publicity stunt in Singapore – a vending machine which gives out free cans of Coke in return for hugs.

The ‘hug me’ machine is part of the company’s ‘Open Happiness’ campaign designed to target young people in a gesture-based marketing stunt, which is currently being tested out in Singapore.

Students at the National University of Singapore were surprised to find that the soft drinks giant had installed the vending machine on campus overnight.

But instead of the drinks brand’s logo, the words ‘Hug Me’ are emblazoned across its iconic red-and-white logo.

Instead of paying money, customers have to squeeze the sides of the drinks machine to receive a free can of Coke.

Public displays of affection are uncommon and have long been discouraged in Singapore, but are on the rise amongst young people.

The move is part of a campaign created by advertising firm Ogilvy ‘n’ Mather, and is ntended to position the brand as a non-threatening ally to demonstrating youth.

In a statement as part of the company’s Open Happiness campaign, Leonardo O’Grady, Coke’s Asia Pacific Director for Sparkling ‘n’ Activation Platforms, said that through the campaign the company wanted to spread some happiness.

“Happiness is contagious. The Coca Cola Hug Machine is a simple idea to spread some happiness,” the Daily Mail quoted O’Grady as saying.

“Our strategy is to deliver doses of happiness in an unexpected, innovative way to engage not only the people present, but the audience at large,” O’Grady said.

Marketing gurus behind the innovative concept hope that it will encourage consumers to ‘bring positivity, optimism and fun into their lives’ and to ‘open a Coke and share a little happiness’.

The machines have been such a success that there are plans to roll them out across Asia.

“The reaction was amazing – at one point we had four to five people hugging the machine at the same time as well as each other! In fact, there was a long line of people looking to give hugs,” O’Grady added.

This is even worse but cleverer in some ways. Any person has ethnicity and gender so what more neutral than a machine eh? No gender, no race, no facial look to prefer (we can though identify scum from a look at times . . . ) or hate as well. BUT STILL same method. Singaporeans are the most Orwellian lot ever. meanwhile the Lee Dynasty gets to ‘lead’ and have term limitless nepotistic family blocs in government. Strawman AGAIN and when politicians resort to the inanimate to cheat the people, while retaining bad laws and making the world an increasingly difficult place to live in, we know the vicious dictatorship loving creeps are entirely out of touch with the people. Combined with neurotech and other methods of mind monitoring they have now, we are already finished unless we vote for a government that is not comprised of cronies, plutocrats and nepotists. This is neo-feudalism, especially when family blocs and family political dynasties occur.

Search on for ‘England’s biggest fan’ to travel the country, in a campervan – 04 April 2012 7:13 PM – EnglandfanCORBIS

Once upon a time, if a destination wanted to announce itself as the sort of place where you would really wish to spend some of your hard-earned holiday allowance, it would pay for a colossal billboard, slap a lovely colourful picture on it, and hope for the best.

But three years ago, the game changed when the Queensland tourism department decided to do things somewhat differently. Rather than design an advert showing a beach and a pretty girl, it offered up ‘the best job in the world’ – a year-long position as ‘caretaker’ of Hamilton Island, in the Whitsunday archipelago of eastern Australia.

All the successful candidate had to do was hang out, grab a suntan, and write a blog about their experiences. Cue a near-endless torrent of applications from hopeful types, and a self-promotional coup before the winner had even set foot Down Under.

Now something similar is happening again. Except that, this time, the venue is not a Pacific Ocean beach – and you have to be able to handle a campervan.

In short, VisitEngland is looking for someone suitably enthusiastic – ‘England’s biggest fan’, to quote their exact words – to spend 70 days driving the country in the build-up to the Olympics while writing a daily update on what they find on the way.

The itinerary will follow in the flame-steps of the Olympic Torch Relay as it cuts a swathe through the country during the pre-Games months of May, June and July.

Presumably, VisitEngland have weighed up the possibility of the search for ‘England’s biggest fan’ resulting in a large fellow with a bulldog and a grainy tattoo of Wayne Rooney on his back – and decided that such a person-hunt is still worth the effort.

The chosen wanderer will have their expenses paid as they trawl the country for titbits. Interested parties must be over 21, and should send 100 words on their favourite part of England, along with a photo, to http://www.visitengland.com/faninavan, by April 9th.

The anointed one will be selected by May 8th, ready to hit the road on May 14th.

Soul harvesting time! Out of a potential 77,777 fifth columnists (one can say they seserve to be treated this way, but being a product of their environment and being the more powerful party, the onus is on the English to not behave in this manner to take advantage of people instead of educating them AFTER subverting them via neurolinguistics and other siubliminal symbolic languages etc..) among camper van owners, only 1 will win. 77,776 minds worth of effort, hope and consideration will be harvested when 77,776 mind’s worth of effort, hope and disappointment occur. This amounts to a very cynical holiday and inconsiderate promotion stint that will only muddy England’s tourist ‘energy’. Would be better to honestly get England’s 5 star hotels to offer 10 free rooms to 10 people who are declared blue collar workers and be done with the promotion. Not a moment’s thought or time for this lot or sort of promotional method. Who knows the ‘winner’ has already been selected so that the ‘hope energy’ can be collected for use in some nefarious reality bending intention! One does not even need to study Freemasonry to figure this out. Just look at that atrocious language! Anointed one? Very not *like* (both the noun and adjective)!

Woman impregnated at Motorhead concert seeks father on Craigslist – Helen A.S. Popkin – Craigslist

If you’re a dude with a red Mohawk who recently got lucky at a Motörhead/Megadeth concert in the bathroom at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago — or if you know a dude who matches such a description — you totally need to keep checking the Missed Connections section on Craigslist. The woman with whom you had an encounter has something that was left behind.

“Did we hook up at the Megadeth/Motorhead concert? – w4m – 28 (Aragon Ballroom),” reads the anonymous post that was live through Thursday:

Me: Blue hair, silver tube top, fishnets, Knee high black biker boots.
You: Red mohawk, black pentagram gauges, viper piercings.

The poster then goes on to describe in detail the passionate encounter — the NSFW reproduction you can find here via the Fuse website, which initially spotted the post. Suffice it to say, the couple did not qualify to post their encounter on the Where Did You Wear It? – Planned Parenthood’s Foursquare-of-condom-use website. So …

Anyway I’m pregnant. It’s yours. contact me if you want to be part of your child’s life.

Rather than judging this young woman —  and you know you are, jerk —  let’s help her out. Consider the near impossible odds of the Craigslist Missed Connections for reconnecting with any random encounter.

Take you, for example. The hottie you stared at a little too long at Starbucks this morning is not looking for you. Of that you can be 99. 9 percent sure.

What’s more, according to those same statistics I totally made up just now, if he or she is posting about you on Craigslist — the creep who stared at him or her a little too long at Starbucks this morning — it’s not in your city’s “Missed Connections” section. The hottie is doing it somewhere in the community or discussion forums in a post tagged FML, the NSFW  acronym used by texting teens with obtuse parents and Craigslisters bemoaning their unfornatuate — or in your case, creepy — life circumstances in the community and forums sections of the online classifieds site.

If we take blue hair/silver tube top at her word — because of course, nobody ever lies on Craigslist— she isn’t a creepy stalker, but a future mom looking out for her impending child. Like everyone else these days, she’s using social media of a sort to get things done. So spread the world so she never has to have this discussion with her young head banger: “It’s not that your daddy didn’t have a Facebook account, I just don’t know his name …”

Say what you will about Hollywood’s lack of originality, but don’t you think the younger generation deserves a big-time introduction to The Three Stooges? “Dumb & Dumber” (1994) writers/directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly certainly believe so, and they’ve worked hard for the last 14 years to finally see that happen, as “The Three Stooges” opens wide this Friday the 13th. The Farrelly’s created this film as a tribute to their heroes, with the actors not so much acting as mimicking the original Stooges while terrorizing the modern world. We all know the Stooges will engage in plenty of nyuk nyuk nyuking, but here are five fun facts about the film you may not know.
[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Do a CGI version using the ACTUAL actors from the old films. They have the technology, and the 3 stooges are a classic that no existing ‘stars’ with that sort of immense wealth can properly depict. Alternatively, hold a lookalikes contest and make sure the actors are serious about being the new face of ‘slapstick’, meaning they best need to be humorous people in real life rather than ambitious careerists whp expect MILLIONS and to act in decades’ worth of films after this.

One off film types from th 99% would be perfect. The 1% actors can’t play fools, the fooling will be on the audience instead and the audience of today are no fools. Want to do a film about fools? Get REAL organic fools (that are smart enough to act). Maybe career clowns at very least who do like being the source of slapstick based laughter. Organic actors, not the plastic plutocrat chameleons, and of course another 1%ter gets to be modestly wealthy instead of the extrem wealth by actors who end up being chameleons who cannot set a role model for REAL society. These actors just teach duplicity . . . and are milking every last bit of ‘feel good factor’ accrued by these ‘old school method casting’ selected ORGANIC actors.

How the US uses sexual humiliation as a political tool to control the masses

Believe me, you don’t want the state having the power to strip your clothes off. And yet, it’s exactly what is happening – Naomi Wolf – guardian.co.uk, Thursday 5 April 2012 15.50 BST

The discussion continues today at 12pm ET (5pm UK time) when Naomi Wolf takes your questions about her column. Join us for an hour long live chat about the supreme court, strip searches and sexual humiliation.

In a five-four ruling this week, the supreme court decided that anyone can be strip-searched upon arrest for any offense, however minor, at any time. This horror show ruling joins two recent horror show laws: the NDAA, which lets anyone be arrested forever at any time, and HR 347, the “trespass bill”, which gives you a 10-year sentence for protesting anywhere near someone with secret service protection. These criminalizations of being human follow, of course, the mini-uprising of the Occupy movement.

Is American strip-searching benign? The man who had brought the initial suit, Albert Florence, described having been told to “turn around. Squat and cough. Spread your cheeks.” He said he felt humiliated: “It made me feel like less of a man.”

In surreal reasoning, justice Anthony Kennedy explained that this ruling is necessary because the 9/11 bomber could have been stopped for speeding. How would strip searching him have prevented the attack? Did justice Kennedy imagine that plans to blow up the twin towers had been concealed in a body cavity? In still more bizarre non-logic, his and the other justices’ decision rests on concerns about weapons and contraband in prison systems. But people under arrest – that is, who are not yet convicted – haven’t been introduced into a prison population.

Our surveillance state shown considerable determination to intrude on citizens sexually. There’s the sexual abuse of prisoners at Bagram – der Spiegel reports that “former inmates report incidents of … various forms of sexual humiliation. In some cases, an interrogator would place his penis along the face of the detainee while he was being questioned. Other inmates were raped with sticks or threatened with anal sex”. There was the stripping of Bradley Manning is solitary confinement. And there’s the policy set up after the story of the “underwear bomber” to grope US travelers genitally or else force them to go through a machine – made by a company, Rapiscan, owned by terror profiteer and former DHA czar Michael Chertoff – with images so vivid that it has been called the “pornoscanner”.

Believe me: you don’t want the state having the power to strip your clothes off. History shows that the use of forced nudity by a state that is descending into fascism is powerfully effective in controlling and subduing populations.

The political use of forced nudity by anti-democratic regimes is long established. Forcing people to undress is the first step in breaking down their sense of individuality and dignity and reinforcing their powerlessness. Enslaved women were sold naked on the blocks in the American south, and adolescent male slaves served young white ladies at table in the south, while they themselves were naked: their invisible humiliation was a trope for their emasculation. Jewish prisoners herded into concentration camps were stripped of clothing and photographed naked, as iconic images of that Holocaust reiterated.

One of the most terrifying moments for me when I visited Guantanamo prison in 2009 was seeing the way the architecture of the building positioned glass-fronted shower cubicles facing intentionally right into the central atrium – where young female guards stood watch over the forced nakedness of Muslim prisoners, who had no way to conceal themselves. Laws and rulings such as this are clearly designed to bring the conditions of Guantanamo, and abusive detention, home.

I have watched male police and TSA members standing by side by side salaciously observing women as they have been “patted down” in airports. I have experienced the weirdly phrased, sexually perverse intrusiveness of the state during an airport “pat-down”, which is always phrased in the words of a steamy paperback (“do you have any sensitive areas? … I will use the back of my hands under your breasts …”). One of my Facebook commentators suggested, I think plausibly, that more women are about to be found liable for arrest for petty reasons (scarily enough, the TSA is advertising for more female officers).

I interviewed the equivalent of TSA workers in Britain and found that the genital groping that is obligatory in the US is illegal in Britain. I believe that the genital groping policy in America, too, is designed to psychologically habituate US citizens to a condition in which they are demeaned and sexually intruded upon by the state – at any moment.

The most terrifying phrase of all in the decision is justice Kennedy’s striking use of the term “detainees” for “United States citizens under arrest”. Some members of Occupy who were arrested in Los Angeles also reported having been referred to by police as such. Justice Kennedy’s new use of what looks like a deliberate activation of that phrase is illuminating.

Ten years of association have given “detainee” the synonymous meaning in America as those to whom no rights apply – especially in prison. It has been long in use in America, habituating us to link it with a condition in which random Muslims far away may be stripped by the American state of any rights. Now the term – with its associations of “those to whom anything may be done” – is being deployed systematically in the direction of … any old American citizen.

Where are we headed? Why? These recent laws criminalizing protest, and giving local police – who, recall, are now infused with DHS money, military hardware and personnel – powers to terrify and traumatise people who have not gone through due process or trial, are being set up to work in concert with a see-all-all-the-time surveillance state. A facility is being set up in Utah by the NSA to monitor everything all the time: James Bamford wrote in Wired magazine that the new facility in Bluffdale, Utah, is being built, where the NSA will look at billions of emails, texts and phone calls. Similar legislation is being pushed forward in the UK.

With that Big Brother eye in place, working alongside these strip-search laws, – between the all-seeing data-mining technology and the terrifying police powers to sexually abuse and humiliate you at will – no one will need a formal coup to have a cowed and compliant citizenry. If you say anything controversial online or on the phone, will you face arrest and sexual humiliation?

Remember, you don’t need to have done anything wrong to be arrested in America any longer. You can be arrested for walking your dog without a leash. The man who was forced to spread his buttocks was stopped for a driving infraction. I was told by an NYPD sergeant that “safety” issues allow the NYPD to make arrests at will. So nothing prevents thousands of Occupy protesters – if there will be any left after these laws start to bite – from being rounded up and stripped naked under intimidating conditions.

Why is this happening? I used to think the push was just led by those who profited from endless war and surveillance – but now I see the struggle as larger. As one internet advocate said to me: “There is a race against time: they realise the internet is a tool of empowerment that will work against their interests, and they need to race to turn it into a tool of control.”

As Chris Hedges wrote in his riveting account of the NDAA: “There are now 1,271 government agencies and 1,931 private companies that work on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in about 10,000 locations across the United States, the Washington Post reported in a 2010 series by Dana Priest and William M Arken. There are 854,000 people with top-secret security clearances, the reporters wrote, and in Washington, DC, and the surrounding area 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2011.”

This enormous new sector of the economy has a multi-billion-dollar vested interest in setting up a system to surveil, physically intimidate and prey upon the rest of American society.

Now they can do so by threatening to demean you sexually – a potent tool in the hands of any bully.

Ironic that they make customers naked at the airport but disallow nudism or at least nudist districts, much less Red Light Districts. Where are those private airfields and private owned craft or small fleet private airlines (in every state?

Talk to Alec Baldwin or anyone who has had trouble with the TSA or airline, if plutocrat singers don’t care about the 99%ters, so how do they expect to stay popular or want to buy tickets to concert when they should be pooling cash to buy their own airstrips or their own private aircraft? Fakes.

Damn 1% mentality 1%ters . . . little wonder people like that Branson character have carte blanc to collude with government to abuse human rights to DIGNITY . . . USA fails, the ‘Stars’ also fail . . . )??? Meanwhile nudism is still illegal (at least for appropriate zones and perhaps not near declared non-nudist friendly schools or places of worship – no signages needed, but the responsibility should be on the nudist to study maps of where a nudist can or cannot be nude).

Battle for power – Friday, 06 April 2012 16:51

There is nothing absolutely fair in the world. Even parents would prefer a child than the others, let alone politics.

[[[ *** There is nothing absolutely fair in the world. Even parents would prefer a child than the others, let alone politics. Hey writer of this article, stop justifying nepotism. Nepotism is how nations fall or governments become mediocre and corrupt. *** ]]]

MCA President Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek accused voters of bias as they are strict to the MCA, but comparatively more tolerant to the alternative coalition.

It is in fact easy to understand. The MCA is a member of the Federal Government with the power to rule and manage national affairs. As for the Pakatan Rakyat, it rules only four states and when something happens, of course the BN would be questioned. It is reasonable to be strict to the BN.

Moreover, the BN has been ruling for over 50 years, but the Pakatan Rakyat has been founded for only four years. The BN’s administrative records left a deep impression on many voters but comparatively, the Pakatan Rakyat seems like a blank sheet of paper.

However, we can roughly know their strengths from one after another political struggle over the past four years.

To stay in power, the BN, particularly Umno, is forced to take the middle line, including introducing the “1Malaysia” concept and trying to play down racial politics. However, it dares not to give up “Malay sovereignty” as it involves over a million of votes.

Umno has been fighting for swing votes on the basis of trying to be open in implementation while retaining the policies.

However, liberalisation measures have been obstructed by the rigid thinking in the party and the administrative team. Therefore, we can always see sharp turns to many decisions. The discipline of civil services is supposed to be rectified but it has eventually been left unsettled.

If there are more talented young people or insightful scholars in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s team, they might be able to lead the transformation plans towards a broader road. It is a pity that there is no time to rectify the situation now.

Because it lacks confidence, the BN uses money distribution strategy to create good feelings.

As for the Pakatan Rakyat, it is playing two roles as the alternative coalition and state governments. It has indeed played its role to the fullest in terms of supervising the Federal Government with its ability to dig out all kinds of administrative loopholes and frauds.

For example, the Pakatan Rakyat was able to obtain information about the purchase of apartments in Singapore and Kazakhstan by the National Feedlot Centre (NFC). It was also able to find out that some goods from the Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia were sold at higher prices compared to certain hypermarkets.

There are many talents in the Pakatan Rakyat. Therefore, they are able to point out many unreasonable moves of the BN government. For example, the cost overrun of the KLIA2 and the RM1.7 billion sale of the Maju Expressway (MEX) brought a great return of RM668 million to Maju Holdings Sdn Bhd. If the talents are used to strengthen the Pakatan Rakyat’s state governance, I believe that the states can actually achieve better performance.

Unfortunately, not many new plans have been introduced by the Pakatan Rakyat state governments. Instead, the states have been facing many livelihood issues.

The Pakatan Rakyat is holding an ambiguous stand in some issues in consideration of votes. It dares not to make a commitment to reduce the number of civil servants and it does not include the recognition of Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) in its Orange Book.

Everyone, after all, is having the same attitude: everything will be find after winning the election.

The green and yellow rally scheduled on April 28 would exert pressure on the BN with the combined power of the civil society. I believe that once the fight is heated up, it will force interest groups to move closer to counteract the grassroots forces. It will make the 13th general election to become the most intense election in Malaysia history.

2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)

Anyone (especially corrupted plutocrats unwilling to use mandate or influence for the above 3 items) who will make 2nd class citizens of the Indian and Chinese ethnicities of 2 of the greatest rising super powers India and China will be persona non-grata, much less treated strictly as per hostile combatants against Article 1 of the UNHCR.

If MIC and MCA have any sense of self respect (which equality affords) left, what with all that money and protection that money affords MCA and MIC, MCA and MIC had better demand the above 3 items, leave BN to fight for the above 3 items, or be the new pariahs among what accounts for 1/3rds of the world’s population.

“Amma, the hugging mother” makes sixth visit to M’sia – Thursday, 05 April 2012 17:37

KUALA LUMPUR, — Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi or popularly known as “Amma, the Hugging Mother”, will make her sixth visit to Malaysia beginning Saturday.

About 20,000 people are expected to meet her at the Penang International Sports Arena (PISA) from 7pm on April 7 and another 7,000 people or so at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) in Putrajaya at the same time on April 9. Dr Sukumaran Krishnan Nayar, chairman of the Amriteswari Foundation of Malaysia, said Amma, 59, also known as the “Mother of Immortal Bliss” from Kerala in India, had been visiting Malaysia every alternate year over the past

10 years to provide blessings at her “darshan” or audience with a holy person in Sanskrit.

Those who seek blessings from her are known to have either a glow on their faces, tears on their cheeks, or just a contented smile, and the luckier ones sometimes get a gift from her, a rose petal or a fruit. Dr Sukumaran said the foundation, which was the official body representing the vision and mission of Amma and hosting her visit to Malaysia, also planned to step up its charity work this year.

AMMA-HUGGING MOTHER 2 (LAST) KUALA LUMPUR Presently, it provides tuition and martial arts training to more than 100 under-privileged children and sewing and cooking classes for about 50 single mothers in the Puchong area, near here. “The idea is to help them have a better life through education and better skills,” said Dr Sukumaran, adding that plans were also in the pipeline for volunteer doctors to provide medical aid later this year.

Nalla Gets Threatening Letter – Thursday, 05 April 2012 00:09

KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian Indian United Party (MUIP) president S.Nallakaruppan has received a threatening letter after labelling Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) adviser Anwar Ibrahim a bisexual.

He said that the letter received at about 12 noon on Tuesday was addressed to Parliament House and not his house in Bukit Tunku but someone then delivered it to his house.

“The writer of the one page handwritten letter was angry with my statement on Anwar and threatened me and my lawyer Dr Muhammad Shafee Abdullah and told us to be careful.

“The letter also mentioned the word ‘pariah’ and I don’t know why the word was used,” he told reporters after making a police report at Sentul police station here yesterday.

The media reported that Nallakaruppan insisted that Anwar is ineligible to became prime minister as the opposition leader is a bisexual.

The Dewan Negara member is prepared to be sued for RM500 million for making the claim as he has proof to support it and is willing to disclose it in court.

Nallakaruppan who was Anwar’s best friend also said that since the disclosure about the opposition leader, he received various types of threats.

“They include prank calls and my vehicle was also stopped by unknown individuals. I am not afraid of threats and intimidation as I am telling the the truth.”

He said the police report was made to ensure the safety of his family and police can identify the handwriting and person who delivered the letter.

The above shows that there are homophobes on either side of the political divide that have no understanding of the Human Rights Charter or the rights to expression of sexual diversity among sexual minorities. To use homophobia and outdated (likely by UN standards) ILLEGAL Section 377B as a political weapon is a human rights abuse and displays a lack of political ethics on the justification of LGBT hate. ‘Hate Speech Criminals’ like Nalla should be sued by LGBT groups and LGBT NGOs in Malaysia. If Anwar was into LGBT, it is none of anybody’s business. Why is Nalla so involved in Anwar’s sexuality. Something we are missing here? Jealousy??? Ex?

Prostitutes more decent than politicians – Thursday, 05 April 2012 Super Admin

MCA is making Islam sound like it is something bad. Islam, Communism, Al Qaedah, Taliban, Jews, Israel, the IRA, corruption, AIDS, gays, porn, prostitution, China Dolls, free sex…they are all put into the same box. Isn’t it time that Islam not be treated as the pariah of society? When you want to whack someone you say he or she is gay, immoral, corrupted, a prostitute, or an Islamist.

NO HOLDS BARRED

Raja Petra Kamarudin

Why must I be nice to politicians, even if they are opposition politicians? And why do you get upset when I refuse to suck the dicks of politicians, in particular opposition politicians? And why do you expect me to also be stupid like you, in regarding politicians as better than prostitutes?

Trust me, prostitutes are more decent than politicians. At least prostitutes take your money and you get to screw them. Politicians take your money and they screw you. And only stupid people like you would allow that. I screw politicians, not the other way around. After all, they have taken my money. So that is my God-given right to screw them, especially if as Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said: they are God-sent.

Hey, today these politicians support the ruling party and we curse them. Tomorrow, they join the opposition and we suck their dicks. Today, we revere our opposition politicians. Tomorrow, they join the ruling party and we curse these same people we once revered. How many times have we been down this road before? One day curse next day revere. One day revere next day curse. Letihlah! Better we just whack all politicians both sides the political divide. Easier. Then no need to keep changing our stand from one day to another.

“What the hell is RPK lamenting about today?” many of you will now probably be asking. Well “DAP will help PAS set up Islamic state,” said The Star today (read below). That is what I am lamenting about.

On 29th September 2001, in his opening address during Gerakan’s 30th national delegates conference, the then Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed announced that Umno wishes to state loudly and clearly that Malaysia is already an Islamic country. This is based on the opinion of ulamaks (religious scholars) who had clarified what constitutes an Islamic country. If Malaysia is not an Islamic country because it does not implement the Hudud, then there are no Islamic countries in the world.

Almost 11 years ago, Tun Dr Mahathir said very loudly and clearly: Malaysia is already an Islamic country. Country, state, nation, nation-state, kingdom, republic, or whatever, it all means the same. The long and the short of it: Malaysia is already an Islamic country. That was what Tun Dr Mahathir announced almost 11 years ago.

So why is the MCA youth secretary-general, Chai Kim Sen, now announcing that DAP wants to help PAS set up an Islamic State? Malaysia, according to Tun Dr Mahathir, is already an Islamic state, country, nation, nation-state, or whatever. How can you turn an already Islamic State into an Islamic State? Aiyah, can you see how bad Chinese mother-tongue education can be? It makes idiots out of these Chinese politicians.

If Malaysia is not yet an Islamic State, contrary to what Tun Dr Mahathir said almost 11 years ago, why did MCA keep quiet then? Why did MCA not foam at the mouth and call Tun Dr Mahathir a liar 11 years ago? Why only now, 11 year later, make so much noise?

What the former Lord President, Tun Salleh Abas, said back in 2002 is another interesting point. The Barisan Nasional government trapped itself when it declared that Malaysia is an Islamic state, said Tun Salleh.

“The statement has trapped BN and Umno. If they think Malaysia is an Islamic country, then why do they object against PAS’ attempt to implement Islamic laws? If this is an Islamic State they should support the implementation of Islamic laws,” he told Malaysiakini in an exclusive interview. (Read the Malaysiakini interview below).

That’s right. If Malaysia is already an Islamic State then why whack PAS? How can you accuse PAS of trying to turn Malaysia into an Islamic State, with the help of DAP according to MCA, if Malaysia is already an Islamic State?

There appears to be some confusion here. Well, actually there is no confusion. It is just that the politicians are trying to confuse us. They are hoping that we are stupid just like them and that we will not detect the lies and spins in what they are saying. That is all it is: lies and spins.

Either Malaysia is already an Islamic State or it is not. If it is, then MCA is lying. If it is not, then Tun Dr Mahathir was lying. The bottom line is, one of the two were lying. So who is lying: Tun Dr Mahathir or MCA?

Anyway, why are the kafir from MCA talking about Islam? Isn’t Islam a matter for the Muslims to sort out? Did not the Crown Prince of Perak say a few days ago that there should not be any debate/argument on Islam? And that means the kafir from MCA as well. You mean to say that Muslims like me must not talk about Islam while the kafir laknat from MCA can talk about Islam? Where got road one?

MCA is making Islam sound like it is something bad. Islam, Communism, Al Qaedah, Taliban, Jews, Israel, the IRA, corruption, AIDS, gays, porn, prostitution, China Dolls, free sex…they are all put into the same box. Isn’t it time that Islam not be treated as the pariah of society? When you want to whack someone you say he or she is gay, immoral, corrupted, a prostitute, or an Islamist.

If MCA is so against Islam or an Islamic State then they should have spoken up 11 years ago. They should have either protested when Tun Dr Mahathir announced that Malaysia is already an Islamic State or they should have called him a liar.

The Islamic State issue is a basi issue lah! Most Malaysians no longer buy this argument. Most Malaysians no longer care a damn. Most Malaysians are not worried whether the government cuts off the hands of thieves when those who will lose their hands would be the corrupt police officers, civil servants and politicians from Barisan Nasional. In fact, most of the leaders and ex-leaders of MCA would be the ones walking around without hands.

Bring on Hudud. I have no problems with it. I do not steal the rakyat’s money. It is the politicians who do. I am even prepared to volunteer to do the hand chopping. Chop, chop, chop…I just love Hudud. Thieves and corrupt politicians beware.

This is what they do to robbers and corrupt officials/politicians in China

‘DAP will help PAS set up Islamic state’

DAP’s real agenda is to pave the way for PAS to establish a hardline Islamic state, MCA youth secretary-general Datuk Chai Kim Sen said.

He said the statement by DAP Youth chief Anthony Loke Siew Fook that Pakatan Rakyat could win 120 parliamentary seats in the coming general election to form the next federal government was in fact a cover for PAS to establish an Islamic state.

“It is an undisputable fact that should Pakatan Rakyat control Putrajaya, religion-based policies will follow soon after.

“PAS has already stated repeatedly that it will gradually implement Islamic policies once it has control over the Federal Government,” he said in a statement.

Chai said this is not the first time that the DAP has helped to boost support for PAS by hiding the truth.

He said the DAP’s plan to place Pakatan Rakyat in Putrajaya was actually an agenda to control the decision-making process to allow PAS to fulfil its ambitions of an Islamic state.

“DAP knows that should they control the Federal Government, Islamisation by PAS is inevitable, and the more they cover up the truth, the more the facts will be exposed,” he said. — The Star, 5 April 2012

BN trapped itself with Islamic state declaration: Salleh Abas

The Barisan Nasional government trapped itself when it declared that Malaysia is an Islamic state, said former Lord President Tun Salleh Abas.

“The statement has trapped BN and Umno. If they think Malaysia is an Islamic country, then why do they object against PAS’ attempt to implement Islamic laws? If this is an Islamic state they should support the implementation of Islamic laws,” he told malaysiakini in an exclusive interview.

He said Umno put itself in a ‘Catch-22’ situation when Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad announced on Sept 29 last year that Malaysia is an Islamic state. “I think they got caught with the statement to counter DAP’s claim that Malaysia is a secular country.”

Asked if Malaysia is an Islamic or secular state, Salleh replied that the country was currently a secular state.

“At the moment, we live in a secular country. The Federal Constitution and the laws state clearly that we are living in a secular state.

“However, it is right to say that Malaysia is an Islamic country, population wise, because the majority of her citizens are Muslims. But it is wrong to say that we have an Islamic government,” he said.

Salleh, who was involved in the drafting of Kelantan’s Syariah Criminal Laws (hudud and qisas) Enactment, said those protesting the wishes of the people of Kelantan and Terengganu to implement Islamic laws are undemocratic.

“It’s very undemocratic for those outside the two states to object when the people of Kelantan and Terengganu are for it. Further, it does not affect those outside the states. We may end up having different laws but what is wrong with that?” he asked.

However, he conceded that the constitutional right of freedom of speech allows anyone to say anything against the implementation of the Islamic laws but stressed that these objections only confuse the people.

“What makes me even more sad is that even the non-Muslims are questioning (the credibility) of hudud laws. Why? The laws are not applicable to them. This is our religion. We have our beliefs as they have theirs and we respect them. But I feel they should not interfere,” he said.

He also assured that the implementation of the Islamic laws in Terengganu will not cause any injustice to women especially to rape victims.

“As an Islamic government, we cannot victimise rape victims. It is clear in the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that women who committed zina (adultery) under compulsion or in another term, being raped, cannot be punished. This will be included in the state laws,” he said. – Malaysiakini, 2 July 2002

Tun Mahathir is lying when he said that Malaysia is an Islamic state as Tun Salleh clearly spelled out that Malaysia is a secular state. Mahathir was then only trying to win supports at the time.

As DAP had clearly state that , no way PAS can implement an Islamic state , unless DAP is dead, so be it for the time being.

As there are many denominations and also interpretation of Islamic laws , some Malaysians are just concern that they may receive the wrong kind of Islamic law that many infidels fear.
MCA is only playing the political games to frighten the infidels that they may received the supports again.
Its correct for Malaysia that politicians are worst than prostitutes. Its a fact . The whole world knows it.

Vote for a new government and may be change will take place.

AG intentionally snubs Agong’s RCIs, says former senior cop – by Shannon Teoh – April 06, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, April 6 — Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim added today the purported snubbing of the Agong to the list of accusations he has levelled against Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail after the Attorney-General (AG) refused to say if his office would prosecute three anti-graft officers who allegedly drove Teoh Beng Hock to suicide.

The royal commission of inquiry (RCI) into the DAP aide’s 2009 death had recommended that action be taken against then-Selangor MACC deputy director Hishammuddin Hashim, assistant enforcement office Arman Alies and assistant superintendent Mohd Ashraf Mohd Yunus.

Mat Zain, former city criminal investigations chief, today said Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail has damaged the police’s image and credibility. — file pic
But the country’s top lawyer instead told reporters yesterday the case has been referred back to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) after emerging from a meeting with de facto law minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz and MACC investigation chief Datuk Mustafar Ali.

Mat Zain, former city criminal investigations chief, pointed out in a letter sent to The Malaysian Insider that this was the second time Gani has failed to act on recommendations by an RCI.

The retired senior cop, who was the lead investigator in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s 1998 “black eye” case, said Gani, who has been AG since 2002, also failed to act on a previous RCI in 2007 probing allegations that appointments of judges were fixed.

The panel had recommended action against senior lawyer Datuk VK Lingam, tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan, Umno secretary general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, former Chief Justices Tun Eusoff Chin and Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim as well as Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“What happened to the recommendations? Gani Patail doesn’t even care a damn about the RCI Commissioners nor has he any respect for them in spite of him knowing they were appointed by the Agong,” he wrote.

Mat Zain also said this was further cause for Datuk Seri Najib Razak to form a tribunal to investigate the various allegations of misconduct against the AG.

“In spite of the damage Gani Patail had done to the police’s image and credibility, I just cannot fathom how some of them are still willing to beg and kiss his feet, especially when knowing the sufferings he has caused, not just to the force but to the criminal justice system as a whole.

“The prime minister has no valid reasons to say no to a Tribunal. That is the only competent authority provided in the Constitution to adjudicate the conduct of the Attorney-General,” he said.

Najib said last month another former top policeman’s claim that he was stitched up with corruption charges by Gani and then police chief Tan Sri Musa Hassan after stumbling upon Musa’s alleged involvement with organised crime did not merit a tribunal as they were mere allegations.

Gani Patail doesn’t even care a damn about the RCI Commissioners nor has he any respect for them. — Mat Zain

This comes after Mat Zain’s repeated accusations in the past three years that Gani and the former Inspector General of Police fabricated evidence in Opposition Leader Anwar’s 1998 “black eye” case which he investigated.

He also said Najib admitted he knew of Gani’s alleged wrongdoings when they met in private in 2008. He had then challenged Najib to axe the AG over his failure to act in high-profile cases such as Teoh’s death that occurred at MACC premises.

Putrajaya has repeatedly said, most recently in November, it will not reopen investigations into the case as an independent panel set up in 2009 had cleared Gani of any wrongdoing.

But Mat Zain said the panel was unconstitutional as only a tribunal, formed by the Agong on the advice of the PM, can investigate the conduct of the AG.

“The PM has no powers to clear the AG on his own nor form some panel under whatever name called for that purpose as and when he likes,” he added today.

Teoh, political aide to Seri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on July 16, 2009 on the fifth-floor corridor of Selangor MACC’s office in Shah Alam after overnight questioning.

A coroner’s inquest returned an “open verdict” ruling out both suicide and homicide, leading Datuk Seri Najib Razak to order a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) after the ensuing public uproar.

The royal panel found that the three MACC investigating officers involved in the case used “continuous, aggressive and improper questioning tactics on Teoh which had breached its existing standard operating procedures” and recommended that action be taken against them.

Zain can do a citizen’s lawsuit on the above if the intention to actually do something is real. Stop posting articles back and forth and file lawsuits. File lawsuits at the Hague against the Malaysian Judiciary (as well as ask awarding Universities of the degrees they hold to withdraw those degrees and international legal associations to withdraw the memberships of the Malaysian Judiciary as well, so that they will have to take a local degree to continue serving in any legal capacity or be considered a professional at all) later of the Judiciary is found to be biased or inaccurate.

Vilification of contributing members of our society — Janarthani Arumugam – April 06, 2012

APRIL 6 — It is extremely disconcerting that the government has reached a new low in its targeting of the LGBT community. In less than a month, the equally homophobic mainstream media has faithfully reported opinions of hate-mongering politicians in order to deflect the rakyat’s attention from the actual malaise affecting this nation — lousy governance.

In fact, I would like to propose an extensive counselling programme to the Honorable DPM to deter corruption among politicians. Now, that would be money well spent, failing which we send them to jail.

I also propose a mandatory personality test to weed out racist, homophobic and sexist elected representatives so that the rakyat are effectively represented in Parliament.

It is vital to understand that this is a carefully constructed “sandiwara” to really draw attention away from pressing problems we face on a day-to-day basis in this country.

For instance, RON97 just went up by 10 sen, the NFC is divesting its ill-begotten assets, the economy is suffering and the coffers of the nation are dry, but none of these get the attention that they deserve from the ruling junta.

I am not going to go into the details of how a person’s sexuality or gender orientation has nothing to do with their ability to host a chat show, run for office or become the prime minister. There is a lot research and case studies which support the fact that given equally opportunities any LGBT individual can reach his/her fullest potential to contribute greatly to society. However, an LGBT individual suffers great discrimination from birth because he/she is not considered the norm hence does not get the opportunity to fulfil his/her potential.

The homophobia displayed by the likes of the deputy prime minister and the Bayan Baru parliamentarian will give credence to misconceptions already being perpetuated about the LGBT community. In fact, any sane politician could attest to the fact that a nation thrives when its citizens are productive.

As a voter, since it is all about the 13th general election, I am perfectly clear on my stand about politicians who are homophobic, hate-mongers or blatantly ignorant. I do not want to cringe every time my elected representative unabashedly contributes to hatred against another Malaysian. Oh yes, let us not forget that the LGBT community also votes!

I would in fact write/call/visit my parliamentarian and tell him/her exactly how I feel about the homophobia and vilification of the LGBT community. If he/she does not hold the very same principles which I do, I would effectively campaign against him/her. I will not tolerate homophobia or hatred in the country that I love and call home.

Pillay presents groundbreaking UN study on violence, discrimination against people because of their sexual orientation
http://globalequality.wordpress.com/tag/united-nations-human-rights-council/

Malaysia being a member of the UN Human Rights Council but allowing Section 377B is making a mockery of the UN Human Rights Council. Will the UN Human Rights Council communicate with the above 2 persons about the glaring incongruities at the top legiskative levels and the realities on the ground where ACTUAL citizens are tormented daily and unprotected by the legal system?

Malaysia does not deserve this feather in cap of being on the Human Rights Council, will UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay do her job (or is she just basking in the limlight for her own glory . . . give over that UN Commissioner’s post yer fake . . . to the REAL people moving Human Rights on the ground and in the background if you can’t do your job Navi Pillay . . .) and demand the abolition of Section 377B in the Malaysian criminal code or the right to apostasy for Article 19 denied Muslim Malay community?

. . . dereliction of duty by being out of touch is this 'Commissioner's' legacy if nothing changes in Malaysia soon . . .

What is the point of Human Rights Council’s acceptance of Malaysia when such abuses, outdated laws like Section 377B are inflicted on citizens, or abusive policies remain in place, hate speech left unsued by supposed NGOs (false flag) not to mention that APARTHEID via Bumi/Non-Bumi citizenship difference still exist? Also, please address the issue in a reasonable time frame or step down for a more pro-active and perhaps younger person who can get things done or is at least aware of what is going on on the ground Commissioner Navi. One wonders if any element of corruption in such tacit approvals via silence is what occurs here . . .

Excerpt from : America made it to the moon with Dachau research by Harry V. Martin and David Caul – Last of a Thirteen Part Series – Copyright, Napa Sentinel, 1991 – Friday, November 22, 1991

The Nazi doctors who experimented on the inmates of prison camps during World War Two were tried for murder at the Nuremberg Tribunal. The accused were educated, trained physicians, they did not kill in anger or in malice, they were creating a science of death.

Ironically, in 1933, the Nazi’s passed a law for the protection of animals. The law cited the prevention of cruelty and indifference to animals as one of the highest moral values of a people, animal experimentation was unthinkable, but human experimentations were acceptable. The victims of the crime of these doctors numbered into the thousands.

In 1953, while the Central Intelligence Agency was still conducting mind control and behavior modification on unwitting humans in this country, the United States signed the Nuremberg Code, a code born out of the ashes of war and human suffering. The document was a solemn promise never to tolerate such human atrocities again. The Code maintains three fundamental principles:

The subjects of any experimentation must be volunteers who thoroughly understand the purpose and the dangers of the experiments. They must be free to give consent and the consent must be without pressure and they must be free to quit the experiments at any time.

The experiments must be likely to yield knowledge which is valuable to everyone. The knowledge must be such that it could not be gained in any other way.

The experiments must be conducted by only the most competent doctors, and they must exercise extreme care.

The Nazi aviation experiments met none of these conditions. Most inmates at Dachau knew that the experiments in the pressure chamber were fatal. From the very beginning, control of the experiments was largely in the hands of the SS, which was later judged to be a criminal organization by the Nuremberg Tribunal.

Despite our lessons from Nuremberg and the death camps, the CIA, U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army Chemical Corps targeted specific groups of people for experimentation who were not able to resist, prisoners, mental patients, foreigners, ethnic minorities, sex deviants, the terminally ill, children and U.S. military personnel and prisoners of war. They violated the Nuremberg Code for conducting and subsidizing experiments on unwitting citizens. The CIA began its mind control projects in 1953, the very year that the U.S. signed the Nuremberg Code and pledged with the international community of nations to respect basic human rights and to prohibit experimentation on captive populations without full and free consent.

In 1973, a three judge court in Michigan ruled, “…experimental psychosurgery, which is irreversible and intrusive, often leads to the blunting of emotions, the deadening of memory, the reduction of affect, and limits the ability to generate new ideas. Its potential for injury to the creativity of the individual is great and can infringe on the right of the individual to be free from interference with his mental process.

“The state’s interest in performing psychosurgery and the legal ability of the involuntarily detained mental patient to give consent, must bow to the First Amendment, which protects the generation and free flow of ideas from unwarranted interference with one’s mental processes.” Citing the Nuremberg Code, the court found that “the very nature of the subject’s incarceration diminishes the capacity to consent to psychosurgery.” In 1973, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts enacted regulations which would require informed written consent from voluntary patients before electroshock treatment could be performed.

Senator Sam Ervin’s Committee lashed out bitterly at the mind control and behavior modification experiments and ordered them discontinued, they were not. But the New England Journal of Medicine states, that the consent provisions are “no more than an elaborate ritual.” They called it “a device that when the subject is uneducated and uncomprehending, confers no more than a semblance of propriety on human experimentation.”

The Nuremberg Tribunal brought to light that some of the most respected figures in the medical profession were involved in the vast crime network of the SS. Only 23 persons were charged with criminal activity in this area, despite the fact that hundreds of medical personnel were involved. The defendants were charged with crimes against humanity. They were found guilty of planning and executing experiments on humans without their consent, in a cruel and brutal manner which involved severe torture, deliberate murder and with the full knowledge of the gravity of their deeds. Only seven of the defendants were sentenced to death and hanged, others received life sentences. Five who were involved in the experiments were not tried. Ernest Grawitz committed suicide, Carl Clauberg was tried in the Soviet Union, Josef Mengele escaped to South America and was later captured by Israeli agents, Horst Schumann disappeared and Siegmund Rascher was executed by Himmler.

There were 200 German medical doctors conducting these medical experiments. Most of these doctors were friends of the United States before the war, and despite their inhuman experiments, the U.S. attempted to rebuild a relationship with them after the war. The knowledge the Germans had accumulated at the expense of human life and suffering, was considered a “booty of war”, by the Americans and the Russians.The Americans tracked down Dr. Strughold, the aviation doctor who was in charge of the Dachau experiments. With full knowledge that the experiments were conducted on captive humans, the U.S. recruited the doctors to work for them. General Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his personal approval to exploit the work and research of the Nazi’s in the death camps.

Within weeks of Eisenhower’s order, many of these notorious doctors were working for the U.S. Army at Heidelberg. Army teams scoured Europe for scientific experimental apparatus such as pressure chambers, compressors, G-force machines, giant centrifuges, and electron microscopes. These doctors were wined and dined by the U.S. Army while most of Germany’s post-war citizens virtually starved.

The German doctors were brought to the U.S. and went to work for Project Paperclip. All these doctors had been insulated against war crime charges. The Nuremberg prosecutors were shocked that U.S. authorities were using the German doctors despite their criminal past.

Under the leadership of Strughold, 34 scientists accepted contracts from Project Paperclip, and were moved to Randolph Air Force Base at San Antonio, Texas. The authorization to hire these Nazi scientists came directly for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The top military brass stated that they wished to exploit these rare minds. Project Paperclip, ironically, would use Nazi doctors to develop methods of interrogating German prisoners of war.

As hostilities began to build after the war between the Americans and the Russians, the U.S. imported as many as 1000 former Nazi scientists.

The testimony of ‘Targeted Individuals’ throughout the web, abused by ‘Neuroscience Technology’ and poisonous medication using ‘Poisoner Psychiatrists’ perhaps in collusion with fringe Xian Cults intent on manipulation and conversion of populations to their religious without regard to Human Rights, perhaps also Muslims that have gone apostate in Malaysia (who knows due to neuroscience propagated or neurolinguistics by the proselytizing groups) is quite severe in Malaysia, and many other 3rd world countries where cults of personality around supposed strongmen or populist politicians (typically identifiable by their family blocs of relatives in government and limitless terms).

On behalf of all minority groups of any type, I hope the appropriate counter-groups and RESPONSIBLE world bodies and enforcement agencies are proactively acting aginst the insidious abuse by brainwashed families affected by :

1) cults (see below where Monotheism attacks Polytheism, probably a campaign of manipulation by ‘society’ in cult controlled areas . . .) : http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/3/23/nation/10974191&sec=nation

2) potential of synthetic drugs at eateries

3) tampered drugs at pharmacies

4) or even the simple flouridation and cholrination of water to HARM citizens

5) NLP based hypnosis in newspapers, adverts

6) agents of the above manipulating groups, causal greetings (with much intent at proselytization – call this ‘psychic imprinting’ for lack of a better word)

7) or being side swiped by vehicles with the same groups with the similar intended effects etc., eating around the same groups with the same intent

;so that these citizens are easier to control or enrich health care providers by, or even providing a fundamentalist voting bloc for fundo factions to rely on for voting with. The method is not much different from fan club culture, except that here BAD POLICY, Nepotism and refusal to amend laws, collusion with crony suppliers destroys societies to the point where the nation’s citizens’ will and personality is subsumed by a single man. Typically in such cases, lack of innovation destroys the country where that country stood simply to favour family members or colluders, then where Monarchy only typifies the cultleader/monarch beyond representative powers it’s back to the Medieval Ages and Prima Noctis type situations AGAIN (most cases the f-ing is done by political party ‘favourites’ and ‘first families’ par excellence with the newbie members low on the pecking order and considered Te-Beng-Hock-esque fodder – well no need to be fodder, run for politics as an independent and the older a$$h0l3 in the political party will have to meet you as an equal, bar corrupt money WHICH the police and election commission can sort out . . . ). In this sort of scenario, there is no way to Pick your choice of ‘Bravehearts’, and at all levels secular, non-aligned and either start a revolution or drop the stale nepotism, term limitless ridden ruling coalition.

Hence in this respect democracies are more powerful governance paradigms, but democracies with family blocs, which by gradation lead to cults of personality where political parties are controlled by ‘political families’ or **dynasties**, term limitless as well, the pallour of lack of innovation and refusal to amend laws for ‘face’ and points scoring also for ‘face’ lead to the fall of many a dictator clothed in the false gtlamour opf democracy where in reality the country is only outwardly democratic but dictatorlike has limitless terms and oligarchs ala neo-feudalism and nepotists etc..

Identify your term limitless and identify your family blocs and you identify the ‘Beloved Leaders’ of the day, one dare short of declaring absolute Monarchy. To be democratic, ALL posts in government AND political party must be merit based (appropriate degrees, 66.6% quorums etc..), must not be dominated by a handful or single personalities (much less family based personalities). If such candidates or incumbents are present and there is no choice, don’t just boycott or select the less ugly one, do your country a favour and run for candidacy yourself and liberalise laws, lower taxes, cut the vote buying via expanding bureaucracy and state sponsorship of business upon taxpayer backs. also avoid plutocrats and big business types who happen to be candidates. Businessmen are not politicians, nor  politicians businessmen, any appearing to be BOTH are not anyone to be trusted, much less nepotists and term limitless oligarchs unable to solve national problems which worsen yearly, or apartheid continuing endlessly.

Vote for non-plutiocrats, non-nepotists, or ay democratic minded person who will drop in for 2 terms, liberalise the system then stand aside for other fellow citizens, anyone else is nonsense and will eventually harm voter and nation.

Things you didn’t suspect – THE CORRIDORS OF POWER – Monday, 19 March 2012 admin-s

There are many unsavory things happening inside PKR that are seldom heard outside the circle of intimates and the next few paragraphs shall attempt to address these issues.

One. PKR is divided into two factions; one that is only reserved for the Malays and the other the non-Malays. Each will hold their “unofficial” council meetings separately before voting en bloc during the official supreme council meetings. The majority of the time the Malay faction wins, as DSAI is the only one holding veto powers but not all the time as this is done to retain some semblance of democracy within the party.

Two. Who did you guys think set Eli Wong up? BN? Think again. Those photos did not materialise from nowhere and that somewhere points to Gombak and Ampang. Don’t believe this? Well, if you have a close friend high up in the DAP, PAS or PKR hierarchy, ask them and they will confirm the truth about it. Why the Hell do you people think Eli wanted to quit politics? It is definitely not because of what everybody thought happened (that BN set her up) but because everybody (who is anybody) knew where the setup originated from. If BN wanted to set her up, Eli would have been be set up right.

Three. No one denies what Azmin Ali wants and that includes DSAI and Wan Azizah. When Azmin was discovered to have set up Zaid Ibrahim with a photo-shopped picture during the last PKR Party Elections, he got off scot-free. No inquiry and no nothing. Likewise, when Azmin’s name was implicated in the illegal sand mining activities in Selangor, no investigations were initiated, merely a statement stating that the “Azmin” in the taped conversation is not the Azmin Ali but some other Azmin who incidentally wields the same political power as this Azmin Ali. Once again no inquiry and no nothing.

Four. Azmin Ali and Zuraida Kamaruddin are a team and that means that no one can touch Zuraida as well as she is “protected” by Azmin Ali. When the RM18,000 collections went unaccounted for in the Pasar Larut Malam @Jelatek incident, the MPAJ did not dare ask for it even though this amount rightfully belongs to them. When illegal structures were permanently erected around Spectrum Shopping Mall in Ampang as part of “Ampang Walk”, once again MPAJ did not dare dismantle them even when these structures did not possess the necessary municipal permits during the construction stage (or even now). Hell, the YDP of MPAJ doesn’t even dare mention it during the council meetings.

Five. Zuraida used former MPAJ councilor Tan Hua Meng (Ketua Zon Lapan) as her proxy to do her dirty work. It was only when the residents of Ampang forced their way to confront DSAI during one of his ceramahs in Kampung Pandan to express their displeasure and to handover a protest note that Tan Hua Meng was dismissed from being a MPAJ councilor. However, what Zuraida wants, Zuraida gets and Tan Hua Meng was reinstated as a MPAJ councilor less than a year later. Tan Hua Meng is now replaced by Fong Teck Keong (current Ketua Zon Lapan) the building contractor nominated by Tan Hua Meng and Zuraida to erect the illegal Ampang Walk. Coincidence? I think not. Well, at least Tan Hua Meng got his get-out-of-jail card and was able to walk away. Not so lucky for Zakaria Rahim, Zuraida’s former proxy before Tan Hua Meng. Got caught manipulating the books for a mere RM5,000.

Six. The PKR party election scam. Two members register rolls. Zero appeal in the event of a tie (party makes the decision then). Photo-shopped picture of Zaid holding an alcoholic drink. No inquiry performed later when allegations of corruption arose. Anyone backing any candidates against Azmin’s and Zuraida’s chosen ones to be ostracized. Hell, who chose DSAI to lead PKR anyway? Self elected?

Seven. When the proposal for a shadow cabinet was mulled over by Pakatan Rakyat, PKR immediately shot it down. Zaid was the sole individual from PKR supporting it and perhaps here lies the foundation for the breakup between Zaid and DSAI. Why go against the formation of a shadow cabinet? One must first consider who from PKR will be selected. Azmin? Zuraida? And what shadow ministries will they occupy? Azmin wanted to be one of the DPMs but that is not possible, as Tok Guru (PAS) and Karpal Singh or Lim Kit Siang (DAP) will occupy these positions. Zuraida wants Wanita and DAP wants it as well and since DSAI will become the shadow PM, both Azmin and Zuraida may end up shadowing minor ministries (quid pro quo), something they do not want happening. Zaid could possibly end up in a higher position than Azmin and the latter isn’t amused. Remember, what Azmin wants, Azmin gets.

Eight. The criteria for selection as a candidate for both state and parliamentary seats are loyalty (not to the party but strictly to either DSAI and/or Azmin). Qualifications do not matter. Corruption-free is not mandatory. Popularity is not a prerequisite. Potential frogs formally from Umno are welcomed. Any existing Member of Parliament and Member of State Assemblies who do not answer “how high” when asked to jump by DSAI or Azmin are to be dropped in the next GE, no matter what the winning majority was in the previous election (except a few untouchables). To be assured as a parliamentary candidate, one must be nationally accepted (Tian Chua, Michael Jeyakumar, Khalid Ibrahim), a son of a very close family friend to DSAI (Loh Gwo Burne), a family member of the self elected so called Ketua Umum PKR (Nurul Izzah Anwar, Wan Azizah) or belonging to DSAI’s inner sanctum (Azmin Ali, Zuraida Kamaruddin, Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, Johari Abdul). Do not be surprised that Rafizi Ramli, Dato’ Dr. Mansor Othman, Shamsul Iskandar, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, Khalid Jaafar, Abd Rahman Yusof, Haniza Talha, Fariz Musa, Zakaria Hamid and Ismail Yusop all get to contest parliamentary seats (notice anything weird in that list?) in the next GE.

Nine. The Azmin Ali long-term plan is to usurp the leadership of PKR and to turn it into another quasi-Umno with the sprinkling of Chinese and Indian representation for show. Zuraida’s long-term plan is to take over as the Timbalan, and along the way collect sufficient funds via proxies to have an “enriched” retirement. What she does not suspect is that Rafizi is also having the same thoughts.

Ten. RPK will never come home to Malaysia regardless of who wins the next GE, both DSAI and Azmin will see to that (should Pakatan reach Putrajaya).

Conclusion: The state of affairs in PKR is like shit. Sorry, it is worse than shit because manure can’t hold a candle to it. If one were to be stuck in it and desires to get out, one would have to look way up to the level of shit and hope one is in it instead of being in the lower-than-dung level one is presently in.

The state of PKR is what malaysia will be like if anwar becomes PM.
Azmin has been anwar’s bum boy all along. But nobody knew that he could be sodomising Zuraidah as well.
All is not right in PKR if there is a division between the malays and the nons. We voted for a multiracial entity the last time. If its turning into a south african type divide, we may as well stay home.

I call for parties in sabah and sarawak to field some candidates in the peninsular. the pens(peninsular Malaysian party) are so screwed up and only the east malaysians can save us now.

Aiyah, why you guys so thick? What Parlimen Selangor is trying to say is that all the trouble in PKR comes from DSAI, Azmin & Zuraida. Give the mandate to PKR/Pakatan in the next GE but don’t vote these three troublemakers in. That is how you can get rid of them permanently cos after 5 years in the wilderness, and after someone else takes over (could be Nurul if she gets enuf of support), their eventual comeback will be useless. So simple also cannot get it ah?

I think this was written by a faction of PR (maybe PKR/DAP/PAS or all three who want the rakyat to know how powerless they are against the tide of AI and AA and their cohorts. Remember, UMNO has always worked the intimidation angle and it still manifests within PKR.

AI and his cohorts have stayed silent all this time because they are silently bidding their time, waiting for the opportunity, letting others do all the work and then reaping the rewards.

What I will be commenting about may seem a little off topic here but then again………..

Months ago , RPK commented in another article that anyone who seem to show some dissent to Pakatan or the member parties, will be screwed up and down. And now it seems I have to agree with RPK that thats what is happening. It does seem like no one in PKR or DAP or PAS can do no wrong as far as some PR supporters are concerned.

Does it not begin to look like we are exchanging BN for another version of BN i.e.PR, if the country does vote out BN? The SOP and Modus Operandi of PKR is starting to look very familiar – very UMNO like. Then what about LGE shooting his mouth off about “give telur” to BN. Sounds very familiar, remember what the bastard Toyo said to the people of Selangor before GE12 —- lets make Selangor opposition zero state!

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for regime change what sort of change are we getting? I am a a very strong and staunch supporter of PR and in particular DAP, but even so I couldn;t help but flinch when I read the statement by LGE about telur for BN. Frankly, I think some PR supporters are just plain blind. We do need opposition, even if the opposition happen to be MCA or MIC or even UMNO. They may be crooks but we do need crooks to watch out for the other crooks, otherwise we, the ordinary folks will end up sending our women to Indonesia as maids not so far in the future.

Whether DAP or PKR or PAS, we must never forget that those people are politicians and one is sure next to a snake oil salesman, never trust a politician 100%!

MCLM was a good idea and it was meant to act as counter balance to BN and PR, unfortunately it never really took off. Too bad for the rakyat.

Rakyat malaysia,
What RPK telling us is not very good if proven true. We knew YM RPK a good guy with lots of integrity. He has lots of respect for PAS and DAP even they are not perfect, there are room for improvement. So, now, we have a choice between PKR and Umno, comparing bother, we knew the following facts, :
1) Umno is proven, they are dominating and all the recent 30 years politics under Umno is not good and very bad for Malaysia, proven beyond reasonable doubt. There is just too much corruptions in all the levels, worst is the Minister and the top divisional leaders of Umno and BN. [[[ *** If Pakatan is the same, no difference anyway? *** ]]]
2) PKR, they are relatively new, and what is being said by YM RPK is not good, but we dont really have a hard fact and data to pin on them.
3) PR as a whole seem to have a good balance of power between PAS, PKR, DAP etc, and it is at least
not as dominating (PKR not as dominating over like the Umno hegemony), as such, there is probably some check and balance, as compared to the BN model, entirely rule and dominated by Umno.
comparatively, PR vs BN, PR is a better model for now.
4) As such, given if PKR is same as Umno, we at this point in time, shoule still give the benefit of doubt
to PKR, that is to say, directly compared BN vs PR, we should always choose PR, unless we have a
very good BN candidate.
5) if we have a choice between PKR vs Umno, we should choose PKR, as the Umno is proven with
track record, we Malaysia dont need to repeat, that is corrupt and NFC cowgate proven again again,
BMF scandal, Dato Zakaria very rich counselor of very big palace in Klang. Dato K Toyo, very rich and
big palace, all menteri2 and PM, very rich sons, no need to work also.
6) so, we rakyat must focus, PR and PKR not perfect, not the best on earth, but given the choice for now
we should : Umno vs PKR we choose PKR. BN vs PR, we should choose PR.
Zaid Ibrahim is good, Tengku Razaleigh is good, Abdul Kadir Sheid Fadzil is good, we can have them
help rakyat. focus, we rakyat must focus, pakat, and rakyat pakat.

I believe a lot of people already know that PKR’s modus operandi is the same as UMNO. Power determines how much $$ they will get. Those not aligned shall be sent to oblivion. Rakyat determines our conuntry’s leaders. What is stopping you to vote for clean BN or Pakatan leaders? If it causes a hung parliament, let it be. Belgium was at the same status and they still survive. But, at least we know those in the parliament are clean leaders. Parties from Borneo land might then be able to play their cards more easily to the benefits of their people.

Parti KEADILAN Rakyat. Cakap tak serupa bikin!! Where is your sense of fairness and justice?

It’s amazing how arrogant you’ve become. You are merely giving ammunition for BN to wrest away the seats you have started to take for granted. Don’t underestimate the voters. We can wait another 4 years till you get your act together. Right now, let’s just keep the 5 states and deny BN the two-thirds.

Well well well, there you go, you blind ABU supporters. PKR can’t even settle its own matter at home how can you expect it to work with DAP & PAS to run 13 states and 2 FT’s? It’s also been pointed out that those are in power now haven’t got the credibility – is that what we want in our future government? People who don’t know what they are doing and talking about, but only an appetite for $$$$?

Zaid Ibrahim may be crazy and eccentric, but I support a man with principle over a man with principle for $. The same goes for RPK. PKR already is a party that indulges in cronyism and hello – kettle meets pot??!?!? Do you think this little monster won’t grow up and become UMNO when it gets into power?

For all the ABU supporters out there, I’m not opposing to the idea of a 2-party system for check and balance. If the other party is not too dissimilar to the original party, aren’t we screwing ourselves and getting no pleasure at all?

That is why there is 3rd Force. Talk talk talk, so where are the 20 candidates that MCLM is fielding, who are they? Which constituencies, and who to contact when your ‘People’s Parliament’ site run by Tengku Dr,. Haris is just filled with ra-ra article writers who aren’t doing anything (other than writing articles), or meetings are always in some far off land? No canvassing or setting up of any offices IN MALAYSIA? Then this is another form of b.s. . . . RPK’s articles are vaguely informative but without concrete action, the MCLM is no more reputable than Pakatan. Nothing concrete so how will the people vote for 3rd Force? BN has the mandate to grant :

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

How about putting an end to all these problems by granting the above 3 items BN?

3rd Force hurry up and get organized, don't make the Rakyat have no choice except these 2 coalitions . . .

Are Pakatan Lawyers That Incapable? – Tay Puay Chan – Monday, 19 March 2012 13:10

I find it amusing that the Menteri Besar of Selangor Khalid Ibrahim along with his excos find no qualms in splurging thousands of if not hundreds and thousands of Ringgit Malaysia (after conversion of GB£1 = RM4.844) from rate-payers’ funds to seek advice from an international London-based legal firm to resolve its stalemate with the federal government on the water industry.

Malaysian advocates & solicitors are qualified

In 2006, when a request was made to the High Court for Cherie Blair, the spouse of former British Prime Minister Tony Blaire to represent construction company Fawziah Holdings at the Federal Court, the Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Wan Afrah Wan Ibrahim ruled that although Cherie Blair is an eminent Queen’s Counsel, she has not satisfied Section 18 of the Legal Profession Act 1976, that is, she has special qualifications or experience of a nature not available amongst advocates and solicitors in Malaysia. At that time, besides the Attorney General, even the Bar Council and the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee (KLBC) objected to her application.

The ruling by Justice Wan Afrah clearly indicates that Malaysian advocates and solicitors do have the special qualifications, experience and skills needed to represent the Selangor state government. Members of the legal profession residing, practising in Selangor state as well as other Malaysian states would best understand local issues.

A foreign-based legal firm would have to research the matter before giving his legal qualified counsel. All these is time-consuming (besides revving up the scale on legal costs borne by Selangor rate-payers) as the foreign lawyers would need to comprehend and adjust Malaysian norms, customs besides the law and issues surrounding the federal-state water tussle.

Our questioning the Selangor government’s dependence on a London law firm for legal counsel is not an argument about battling the legacies of post-colonialism or an East versus West debate.

Our objection is based on the Selangor government discarding the ability of its own state legal team, its own lawmakers elected at both state and federal levels, and other advocates and solicitors who are ordinary members or office bearers in all parties i.e. DAP, PKR and PAS forming the Pakatan coalition.

Do Pakatan lawyers know the law?

This move by the Selangor government is an indictment of the talentless, inadequacies of Pakatan members, party office bearers who are registered with the Malaysian Bar Council advocates and solicitors and legislators who draft Bills, Acts, Enactment, that they become reliant on foreign labour (skills).

So does this mean MCA is going to end APARTHEID and implement Articles 1 and 18 of the UNHCR? Pakatan lawyers flounder about to collude better AGAINST the Rakyat. The self serving creeps are not incapable, they are witholding democracy and refusing to amend laws etc. because the profit oriented flaws in the system are what makes lawyers rich and allow suppliers to collude on AGAINST the taxpayers not directly involved . . . and too many are too selfish to want to change the laws out of duty to government much less Malaysia or even mankind. (That includes BN lawyers and Malaysian Bar Council and the Malaysian Judiciary who seem not to know that APARTHEID is illegal to practice by UN signatory countries like Malaysia . . . all foreign Universities in the 1st World should withdraw these inactive and colluding, 3rd world minded ‘legal-junta‘ in the 3rd World of their degrees!).

Chinese-Jewish Malaysian Parliamentarian ~ Teresa Kok Suh Sim? – Friday, February 10, 2012

Now, isn’t this interesting? How many Malaysians know that we have a Chinese-Jewish Parliamentarian in the person of the DAP Seputeh MP Teresa Kok Suh Sim?

I happened to learn of this matter when I browsed AAKJ’s blog here where he headlined about Teresa Kok promoting forbidden food to Muslims!

Naturally such a provocative headline like that would grab my attention and up to now, I had not learned of the existence of the Chinese Jews!

So, in a sense, Thank you AAKJ for enlightening me. Terimakasih bro! Surely, such a fact would have been unnoticed if not for the advent of social media and the availability of Google Search engine which really makes it all so easy for us to do some bit of investigative research just about anything and anyone!

No wonder that Teresa is always there at the frontlines whenever anything concerning the Jews or the Christians are involved? [[[ *** The term for this is ‘Religious Fifth Columnist’ . . . *** ]]]

Wish we had our Muslim MPs with that much of commitment and perseverance to look after the welfare and safety of the ummah!

I’m going to study more about this Chinese-Jewish thingy and learn as to who they are, what makes them tick and what is their agenda at large apart from stealing Palestine from the true sons and daughters of the soil there?

Such a thing is already happening here in Bolehland but the Malays are too divided and in deep enmity against each other to take notice!

They are going to wake up one day and wonder where the hell has their Tanah Melayu disappeared to?

As it is most of the ‘Malay Reserve Lands’ has already changed hands using the ever available proxies. Read about it here. The Star newspaper reported on the issue here about foreigners buying up such lands using such tactics.

As we all know, quite a large number of the Malay landowners are notorious for selling out their ancestral lands to others only to make a hue and cry about it once they start realizing that the damage has already been done! I don’t even want to start writing about the ‘Waqaf’ lands… That’s gonna make so many hearts bleed. Muslim hearts that is..

For now, let’s study about this Chinese-Jewish DAP MP! Pretty interesting subject!

Don’t you agree? Published by MAHAGURU58 at 4:26 PM

No surprise. All the chapchong literal and figurative, also political stances and types, etc., in Pakatan anyway. Theresa quite worryingly could be a brainwashed or contrived personality placed indirectly by Mossad. DAP = PAP = Zion? Israel the country may not be Zionist run though (Zionism is a form of apartheid btw) so unless the world wants to deal with a second Nazi in the form of Zionism, better know who is linked to who wherever. Sovereignty and autonomy is too important to drop. China should have an opinion on this, though why the BRICS should give up their side of the world or not even compete to control or at least keep neutral the rest of the world does not register at all. WW3? Iran would simply irradiate the region and Israel would not escape radiation. And then there’s the very ‘Jewish feel’ half blood prince RPK (the communication style and attitude are inescapable if you ask moi.) . . .

Then again if that really happens, USA would probably not even bother with clean ups (i.e will drop Israel though probably will give them Green Cards) because internal problems in USA are too severe and an irradiated Chernobyl style Middle East means at very least 50 years unliveable up to 50,000 for the heaviest elements which is what is being used in nukes of the day. Overkill is what nukes are, a handful of this current generation of nukes means the world, not just the Middle East, will be unliveable and sickened for decades due to the even more dangerous high quality and extreme distribution by the 1000s of times more powerful (1mt = 1000 kt, 50 mt = 5000kt) – and wide spreading nukes compared to Hiroshima and Nagasaki type nukes . . .

If 10km quarantines were needed for 1940s bombs and 20MT equivalent Chernobyl equivalent irradiated 300-500km, a single bomb like ‘Mike‘ 1000 times the size of a Hiroshima Bomb at 10MT but throwing particles upt to 100 times higher could potentially cause 10 times the radius worth of irradiation. This would easily mean a 3000-5000km radii of contamination . . . . So what happens with just a handful of that type of nuke fired between 2 countries 5000kms away not even a WW3? A handful of times as much radiation multiplied?  The irradiation from the fallout would destroy every life form especially the people living in the firing nation’s lands, including any nations up to 5000km away . . .  that would be the USA across the Atlantic and all the way to as far as Japan – just because Israel or Iran use a Mike sized nuke.

Weather patterns are not static and in a year or few at most that radiation will reach whatever nation that fired even if ‘downwind’ . . . whats the point, so what if any nation has nukes? Those can’t even be used! 1 megaton could already very well destroy the ecosystem no end world wide . . . but a bomb will spread much further . . . ) much less 50 megatons or Uranium or Plutonium with a half life of 50,000 years. Stick to conventional weapons at least and dismantle those unusable nukes, the Geneva Convention could otherwise simply implement new laws to require all countries to not use these radioactivity intensive weapons. Or at very most stick to nukes no larger than the ones used on Japan in the 1940s. The below link has a conventional weapon that at least does not spread health wasting radioactivity across the world :

http://americansstandwithisrael.blogspot.com/2012/03/israel-develops-its-own-bunker-buster.html

Stick to conventional weapons! Update the Geneva Convention! And please help those activists fighting for democracy in the 3rd World for simpler causes like ending apartheid or minority demographic rights, the human rights abuses and disenfranchisement are terrible . . .

Iranian Crown Jewels The Naderi Throne

Many cultures show their diversity in the traditional architecture, dances, and traditions in one’s country. Iran displays part of its rich culture and history through the Iranian Crown Jewels.

The Iranian Crown Jewels, also known as Imperial Crown Jewels of Iran or of Persia, is a collection of items passed on from generation to generation of rulers in Iran. Most of the items date back to 1500 A.D., when the Safavid dynasty acquired most of what is part of the current collection. These items were used up to the last dynasty in Iran, the Pahlavi dynasty, which was overthrown in 1979. There are many items within the collection: crowns, thrones, tiaras, swords, shields, other unusual items. Most notable of these are the Syamantaka-mani, the gem encrusted Peacock throne, the Samarian Spinel, and the bejeweled globe. Some items which were once part of this massive collection, like the Koh-i-Noor, before becoming spoils of war and were consequently taken by other owners. The Syamantaka-mani is among the largest gems in the world and now held illegally amongst the British Crown Jewels after it was seized by the East India Company and was presented to Queen Victoria, then Empress of India, in the year 1877.

The Peacock Throne, usually confused with the one in India, used to be called Sun Throne. However, after Fathali Shah’s subsequent marriage to Tavous Khanoum Tajodoleh, the name was changed. Tavous, in Persian, is the word for peacock. The Samarian Spinel is a 500 carat spinel gemstone and is from India. Uniquely, the Samarian Spinel has a hole in it, which once held a diamond (stolen?). It is also said that this was once an adornment to the biblical golden calf. The jewel-studded globe, standing in a height of 44 inches, is covered with thousands of gemstones. Water is shown by emeralds while land is shown by rubies and spinels. However, there are countries shown in diamonds such as Iran, Britain, France, and parts of South Asia.

These items are only part of the vast collection of Iranian Crown Jewels which are on public display at the Central Bank of Iran.

The Syamantaka-mani. Give up the stolen loot yer yobs !

Abu Said's Ruby. Give up the stolen loot yer yobs !

The STOLEN gem ‘The Syamantaka-mani (and others taken from the Peacock Throne) should be filed for by Iran in an international lawsuit, along with a formal charge comprising Legal Counsels to reacquire (with damages) the Abu Said’s Black Prince Ruby, the Star of India, the Star of Africa, the Cullinan, Spring Palace treasures from China and so many others jewels taken under duress during the Colonial occupations round the world. Little wonder why Iran has such poor relations with the English. The English stole and hold ILLEGALLY a part of the sovereign property of so many countries and must be made to return the stolen goods. Will the International Criminal Court backed by Interpol help these countries retrieve their stolen treasures? The Commonwealth thus by association is giving tacit approval to the violent colonialists and should also ask that these treasures taken under duress while colonised be returned. Iran could spearhead this movement in a high profile manner that will shame the English and give a sense of righteousness to Iran (barring any human rights abuses within Iran) that will ‘de-justify’ any pre-emptive strike on Iran itself. If Iran does not thorw the first punch, Iran would very well eventually take over the Middle East especially if the above cultural considerations are applied.

Japan foresaw possible Fukushima meltdown from day one: documents – Reuters – 9th March2012

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO)’s President Toshio Nishizawa speaks to reporters after his meeting with Fukushima Prefecture Governor Yuhei Sato at the latter’s office in Fukushima, northern Japan March 9, 2012. Nishizawa visited the governor ahead of the one-year anniversary since the Fukushima Daiichi plant was wrecked by a quake and tsunami last March, triggering the world’s worst nuclear crisis in a quarter of a century and swamping the firm with huge clean-up, compensation and decommissioning costs. REUTERS/Yuriko NakaoEnlarge Photo

TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s government foresaw the possibility of a meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant hours after a huge tsunami smashed into it, according to cabinet minutes released on Friday, although it took officials more than a month to acknowledge it.

The earthquake and tsunami on March 11 knocked out cooling systems at Tokyo Electric Power Co’s (Tepco) Fukushima Daiichi plant, triggering the world’s worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in Ukraine in 1986.

“Cooling functions still in service are those run by batteries. They will last eight hours,” a summary of the first emergency cabinet meeting, four hours after the quake, quoted an unidentified participant as saying.

“If core temperatures in the reactors remain on the rise for more than eight hours, there is a possibility that meltdown may occur.”

A Trade Ministry official who acted as a government spokesman after the disaster struck was replaced after he mentioned the possibility of meltdown on March 12.

It was not until May that Tepco acknowledged that a meltdown of fuel rods appeared to have occurred, sparking criticism that the operator and officials were playing down the severity of the accident.

Tepco now believes that three of the six reactors at the plant, 240 km (150 miles) northeast of Tokyo, suffered fuel meltdown.

The minutes were released two days before the first anniversary of the disaster that left 19,000 dead or missing.

Other entries in minutes of emergency cabinet meetings show confusion and disagreement among top leaders as Japan faced its deepest crisis since World War Two.

“Who is the leader of the actual operation?” Yoshihiro Katayama, internal affairs minister at the time, told a March 15 meeting of the Nuclear Emergency Response headquarters.

“I’ve got too many unintelligible demands and requests. No one is holding the reins.”

On March 14, then-Prime Minister Naoto Kan spoke of a consensus among specialists that a 20-km evacuation zone around the plant was sufficient. He was challenged by Koichiro Gemba, national strategy minister at the time, who pointed out contradicting views.

Gemba, whose constituency is in Fukushima, told a different meeting: “This is war. We only win or lose. We are already losing in some battles. But the important thing is how we manage to limit our loss.”

Trying to save face? Or retro-gressively qualifying Japanese expertise? The most disappointing thing was the lack of even the simplest robotics to handle these problems. I saw Robocop in th 1980s, then 3 decades later, the Japanese do not even have anything like ‘ED209’ to repair the damaged plant and avoid radiation. Instead its 1940s again with Kamikaze TEPCO workers, and old people sacrificed because they were old at that. Nothing changed since the first nukes in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in that case. Japs are a bunch of wankers who might as well didn’t progress since 1940s technologically. From the looks of it all the Japs did was play lapdog to the West and churn out lots of interesting cartoons. Japan is a media house, propaganda outfit, not a sovereign country.

Instant fail y’know why? A flesh and blood person idol has a real aura and lifeforce one can feel. A person idol has possibilities, no matter how slight, like a relationship or even marriage and family that enrich the fan. A flesh and blood idol-person has DNA which can be BOUGHT and sold though probably needing their consent, to make clones of, or have children with fan (though in absentia of the original fan) that are FLESH and BLOOD.

This is a hologram and like the spirit which has 3 souls, a human has 7 more, how can this hologram compare? Aurora Borealis is living and exuded by intereaction between the Sun and Earth, this is but a machine, perhaps without AI, and who knows somehow spiritually ‘blackmarket’? Also a lucky fan with front row seat, could be called up in stage in a flesh and blood star’s case to physically be with the star interact aura-wise, feel sensuality/sexuality of that idol.

Misogyny in comics – Superheroes need rescuing from sexism – by Ned Beauman – Monday 30 July 2007 14.09 BST guardian.co.uk

I really want to stand up for graphic storytelling, and I’ll be doing so in a series of blog posts starting today. But comics’ representation of women can make this very hard.

Menaced by outdated attitudes … the controversial cover of Marvel Comics’ Heroes for Hire

Sometimes, defending superhero comics’ right to a place in mainstream culture is like defending a sozzled, lecherous uncle’s right to a wedding invitation. I dearly love them, but I’m ashamed of them, too. This year, for instance, three tawdry incidents have left DC Comics and Marvel Comics, the “Big Two”, facing accusations of misogyny from even their most ardent fans.

First and worst was the case of “Mary Jane Watson: slutty housewife”, when Marvel released a statuette of Spiderman’s girlfriend bending over to pull his costume out of a laundry pail, showing off maximum cleavage and thong. Soon after came two issues of monthly comics with irredeemable front covers: Heroes For Hire #13 showed three busty superheroes menaced by an alien insect called the Brood, which many saw as a deliberate reference to the “tentacle rape” genre of Japanese manga comics; Justice League of America #10, meanwhile, showed Power Girl with breasts that were surreally oversized even by comics’ regrettable standards.

Superhero comics have always been plagued with sexism. Back in the 60s, the problem was marginalisation – just as every black superhero had to have “black” in his name, female superheroes were called something like Shrinking Violet or Invisible Girl, and certainly knew their place.

These days, there are lots more strong women in comics. But marginalisation has been replaced by objectification: female characters get stuck with implausible curves, skimpy costumes, and stripper poses. Then there’s Women in Refrigerators syndrome – the way male writers seem happy to make violence against women (often sexual violence) into a cheap plot device.

This year’s scandals have left a lot of fans wondering if real progress will ever be made. But, on the bright side, they’ve helped rally together a network of passionate feminist bloggers and critics who are sick of Marvel and DC behaving like teenage boys. Sites like When Fangirls Attack and Girls Read Comics and They’re Pissed have made the sexism debate impossible to ignore – and although Marvel refused to back down over Mary Jane or Heroes For Hire, the Power Girl backlash led DC to revise that cover, reducing her cup size from Inconceivable to merely Absurd.

Except, actually, that’s not really such a victory, is it? There’s still a very long way to go – and you might feel that, if you want to see female characters treated with any respect by their creators, the male-dominated world of superhero comics is just not for you. But there are exceptions.

Two of Marvel’s most entertaining writers – Buffy creator Joss Whedon and Lost staff writer Brian K Vaughn – have casts full of believable women. (Try Whedon’s Astonishing X Men Volume 1: Gifted or Vaughn’s Runaways Volume 1: Pride and Joy.) But perhaps the greatest female superhero of recent years is Brian Michael Bendis’s Jessica Jones. Formerly a flying crime-fighter called Jewel, Jones hangs up her cape to become a private investigator. For more than 40 issues – now collected in a series of paperbacks starting with Alias Volume 1 – Bendis took us inside her head, creating one of the bravest, wittiest and most sensitive portraits of a female character that superhero comics have ever seen.

Plus, she had a realistic body and didn’t try to battle evil in a gold bikini and stiletto heels. But even that wasn’t what really shocked fans. Jessica Jones had a particular superpower that was so alien, so incomprehensible, so disturbing, that barely a single male comics writer had ever dared to depict it before. Wonder Woman or Storm may save the world twice a day, but they’d never admit this terrifying secret. That’s right: Jessica Jones actually had a menstrual cycle.

The best new graphic novel: The Poor Bastard. Out in a couple of weeks from Jonathan Cape, Joe Matt’s graphic novel is more autoflagellation than autobiography: laying bare the neurotic author’s idleness, pornography addiction, and brainless pursuit of every “exotic” woman he meets, it’s an uncomfortable, hilarious read. Maybe sexism in comics isn’t all bad.

This is a real problem here. How are our young Hollywood starlets and porn stars supposed to feel when they realize their legs are never going to comprise 66% of their body, their eyes will never cover three eightths of their face, and with a waist that small there’s actually no place to store your vital organs? If comic books make life shit for our starlets and porn women, just think of how shitty your daughters, mothers, and sisters will feel when they realize a lower back tattoo just ain’t enough for either a pimply-faced teen or the stock broker he’ll become. But seriously. Ew. She looks…. pathological.

Nop. No sexism at all. Actually this means that sexy is not the sole preserve of porn or sex workers and that on main street, though not all offices where actual work is done, sexy is making a comeback in gentrified form.

Whats so misogynistic, especially when no-touching rules apply? This is a comic! Strippers while entirely naked shouldn’t be a turn on even, being more a a background of sorts for the tired subconscious. Lapdancing with actual contact, especially the naked form (the clothed form also but depending on the need of the use, some enjoy the tactile sensation, while others are there for actual orgasmic titillation) yes. But even then misogyny should also be given appropriate space for expression. Tentacle rape as a concept (maybe they will have a likely ‘SPCA condemnable’ tank filled with Octopi and squid – the Japs were way ahead of us here – ) by the way is more like multiple massage, much like maturbation is also massage, save for the climax. Comics ALONE are hardly misigynistic and is having fun and places were this sort of thing is pathological, the writer of the above article has yet to make that difference it seems. Which Ayatollah or Taliban village or Militant Feminist was the writer brought up with anyway? Ew? You need to pump up abit with the real men.

Pity Randy Savage is already ‘dead’ (or retired in the guise of a death perhaps? lets exhume . . . bwahaha) . . . though we hope that an ‘Idiocracyland’ Theme park franchise will reach the place where ‘George’ lives (many other places where ‘Georges” live as well) so he learns to appreciate a ‘Gentleman’s Latte’ and identifies the meme of manliness within the ‘Dildo Monster Truck’ that Randy Savage . . . I mean ‘Beef Supreme’ near died in. Some of us don’t grow as much chest hair or facial hair as George, heck some even are confident enough to purposely grow b1tch t1t5 while manning it up in all other ways without losing their money makers (if there is no sabotage otherwise – see below pic), or are so GAY inclined yet ‘Spartacus’ hard and manly – but here’s a flaming domesticated/henpecked metrosexual writing ‘soft’ and whining about how misogynstic comics are, or to put it in Rush Limbaugh’s terms being ‘b1tch3s and tw@t5’. You keep at it Limbaugh! Can’t please everyone. And Rush made clear which demographic Rush’s programme is for, no need to apologise, tell them to shut up,  and this article is to teach people that comic books are for kids, not for whining about how misogynstic the characters are to ingratiate oneself with the uningratiable militant feminists. It’s just not them and some people need to get new friends.

Manning up with tits. Still hetero Brian? Takes a man to do this and remain a man . . .

Bill Maher (left pic) Defends Rush Limbaugh’s (right pic) “Apology” – Mar 7, 2012 04:35 PM by Jess Dweck

Rush Limbaugh and comedian Bill Maher are pretty far apart on the political spectrum. So, it was surprising to see Maher come to the defense of the right-wing radio demagogue for his offensive remarks about birth-control advocate Sandra Fluke.

Maher tweeted yesterday… ‘Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting. Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout.’

Listen, I like Bill Maher. He’s a great political satirist. But it’s hard not to cringe when when he drops a c-bomb or calls female politicians like Sarah Palin a “dumb twat” and a “bimbo.” (Although, to be fair, Palin is totally a bimbo.)

Is this some kind of liberal double standard? Not at all. I’d rather have someone call me a bitch than treat me like one. And I’d much rather have someone call me a slut than deny me affordable health care.

Let’s take the misogyny out of political commentary and keep it where it belongs — almost everywhere else in politics.

Titch. In ‘Misogynic Language’ the term bimbo and dumb tw@t is ONLY given to likeable and F-able women. Don’t apologise and be a faux-b1tch to the actual b1tche5 or a faux-tw@t to the actual tw@ts. Bill, Rush and the rest of the machomen have chosen their preferred demographic, so like any Porn or Adult Channel, will the children and non-bimbos stop watching, then crying and whining later about misogyny and just go away? This apology is WEAK, this defense ios unnecessary. Limbaugh, take that apology back and just drop those who can’t identify with OUR demographic. To each their own. Though do put up that ‘Real Men and Manly Lesbians – Misogynists Only’ warning at the front of your programme, everyone else can go play with Jane the Plain, no offense to Jane Does, or any non-bimbos.

Limbaugh wrong in apologizing to Sandra Fluke – Tuesday, March 6, 2012

I’m not going to get into Limbaugh’s brain, because he explained his reasons for apologizing very well today. He basically said that a conservatives must not be dragged down to the level of the left. You know, that old idea that we should fight nice while our enemies fight dirty.

Well, as a right-leaning libertarian, I disagree. The left loves fighting dirty, Bill Maher can call Sarah Palin the c-word and get away with it. Rush Limbaugh himself has been called all kinds of nasty things. Michelle Malkin has been called a gook and a chink, Ann Coulter has been called nasty names, as Chattanooga’s commie cartoonist Clay Bennett has drawn black conservative Herman Cain as a confederate general and as a clown.

So to my friends on the right, why are you being nice? If a woman spends $3,000 a year on birth control and demands a Catholic university to pay for it, she is a slut. If Fluke had kept her sexual life private, nobody would be calling her any names. I mean, folks, if you go to a Jewish neighborhood wearing a swastika, you’re not going to get a warm welcome.

I’m ok with Fluke having sex, in fact, I’m a bit of a libertine when it comes to sex. but here’s the problem:

Liberals in the 1970s: “If it feels good, do it.”

Progressives in 2012:  “If it feels good, pay for me to do it.”

Well I’m sorry liberals/progressives, but I don’t want to pay for your lifestyle. I don’t pay for the sado-masochists who buys a $300 chain vest, I don’t pay for the guy who visits the Bunny Ranch, I don’t finance nudist colonies, and I don’t even pay for the porn I sometimes watch online. See? That’s how society should work, you pay or enjoy the free preview of what you like, you don’t pay for what you don’t like.

Yet now millions of women like Fluke want to screw the entire country. How would progressives feel if they had to pay for my bullets, my guns, my concealed carry permit, and all the things I do as a gun owner? How would women feel if the lap dances I sometimes get where paid by them?

The libertarian solution of course is to fight for Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Association. Georgetown also needs to clean house and get rid of those stupid liberal professors defending Fluke. You’re CATHOLIC for God’s sake! I doubt your university has a Pro-Choice Club or a Secular Humanist Club, or anything that doesn’t fit in with Catholic Values.

So why are you defending Sandra Fluke? If that floozy had gone to Brigham Young University, she would have been expelled months ago! People like Fluke belong in Harvard, Berkeley, MIT, University of Michigan, and the usual places where conservatives are discriminated against while liberals are empowered.

Come on, Georgetown, you can do better than a freak like Fluke! Have pride in your FAITH! Georgetown is a great institution BECAUSE of the Catholic tradition. If you start tolerating Catholic enemies like Fluke, you’ll be destroyed from within.

This already happened at Brandeis University (Jewish) which has allowed an invasion by Muslims and self-hating Jews who have attacked Zionism. So beware, Georgetown, you are not invisible.

The Bitter History Of The Man-Made God, page 1 – Topic started on 5-3-2012 @ 09:57 AM by Starchild23

The modern “God”, as defined by man, is a ruthless tyrant, and man a blind race of sheep. I will keep this short, as I don’t feel like providing specific examples. Those of you who have read the Bible, or are familiar with its stories…you who remain utterly faithful to the literal interpretation of its fables…you are the ones I am addressing. You are the blind ones, the ones who believe in the man-defined God (despite the fact that man, as he is, could never hope to understand God) and the ones who will know what I’m talking about as I explain this.

God is a tyrant, and unworthy of our worship (not that we need to worship ANYTHING).

Here is my justification in stating this. God arrogantly created man without the knowledge of good and evil, then demanded that they obey a rule which requires the knowledge of good and evil, then kicked them out when they fail to do so as a result of being inadequately equipped to deal with the issue. Not stopping there, he proceeded to cast Satan out into the same world as them, so that no matter what they did, they would fall into the same trap again and again.

Afterwards, God kills a bunch of people for not paying any attention to him, then plays with them, testing to see what kind of depraved acts they are willing to commit to save their own skins from “damnation”, before going “PSYCHE! got ya! ”

Then God sends his only son to be killed in order to save the people, tricking them into accepting his gift of absorbing all sin, then demanding payment in the form of eternal servitude…the alternative being the fiery pits of hell for all of forever.

And in the end, he will completely ransack the earth, killing half of his blindly devoted servants and making the other half question his sanity, before sending his son back saying, “Did you miss me?” and destroying anyone who ever questioned him. Unless they beg like dogs, of course.

This is the God we have been encouraged to worship for centuries. A loving God, yet a malicious and jealous God. A contradictory, egotistical, whimsical, and highly vindictive all-mighty being.

Is this the entity we are supposed to put our faith in? One that, for all of his power, can think of no other way to erase our sins or redeem our souls than to kill his own son and demand that we serve him for all of eternity?

I call troll. And if you disagree, then you choose to remind faithfully blind. Me, I was given brains for a reason. I’m not choosing ignorance. And let me make it clear that this description (which I firmly believe to be accurate) applies to man’s definition of God. The God we are lead to worship these days is not truly a god, but man’s definition of God. I do not worship a definition. I do not worship a sloppily drawn, crumpled, half burnt image…which is what man’s version of God amounts to. I don’t even believe that the true god desires to be worshiped. I believe that given the choice, the true god would rather have us love each other than Him/Her/It. Because if all it leads to is wars, then why exist at all?

I believe in a god…but not the god that is being pushed upon us by our peers. This is a god who has been constructed, drawn, colored in, and defined by the very men who worship him. Man, who has crippled and despoiled both the world and him/herself. I don’t worship man’s ideals, or anything that has been interpreted by man.

I trust in the true god, not this malicious, vindictive tyrant which the Bible itself says is “jealous and angry.”

Jealousy and anger are not symptoms of true love. And any omnipotent, omniscient and benevolent being would know this.

Wake up, and recognize the true god…the one within you. Namaste.

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

This article would have been good if not for the proselytizative ‘hail’ FAIL in the form of Namaste at the end of the article. Unsubtle. Just makes people hate Hinduism (not that Hindu is hateful in itself), as much as any ethnically centralized faith does not encompass everyone.

I have often wondered about the bullying nature and innate bloodthirst emanating from the words within some religious texts and dropped Xianity quite quickly because the ‘jealous god’ thing. A jealous god deserves no worship and probably is evil in nature. Whats so godly about god that behaves like a sick minded jealous ‘ex’ or a childish ‘angry’ teen (Sounds like a great ?porn? title  . . . (Jealous and Angry Exes From The Kingdom of God . . . )? Worship occurs of the follower’s free will if the God is good, also needs the follower’s personality to be compatible with the ‘commandments’ of that god. Otherwise no worship for that god. The Christ triple entity was a man, but grew as another might have and still may, into the Son of God after deifying the Mother (who became an immaculate conceiver, this is not unknown in nature and CAN occur in hermaphrodites . . .).

Any man (being an image of God), can grow into Sainthood/Anti-Sainthood via many paths (isolation so as to communicate with the spirit appropriate to one’s nature, tantric practices, sacrifice of others (hence the taste for war and on a civilian scale – murder, serial or otherwise), sacrifice of self, formation of world wide hierarchies, propagation of culture and language (this can be reversed or countered via massive populations or cultural programming, linguistic insularism), military might and proselytization being the lowest and weakest, easiest to displace form of Sainthood), and can if well read enough, eventually begin a new religion to finally claim relations to the existing ‘God’ who will most doubtless make known signs of that attempt’s success.

A Holy Book and body of evidence and life events, some of which becomes Apocrypha that splinter sects take up to justify more claimants to godhead by relation, via forming hierarchies, gathering massive wealth, but the truest form of such attempts when enmired in gross materia rather than spiritia, result in the twisted mobs of insane claiming the status of faithful, others becoming inquisitors to tyrannise the population, and others sacrificing lives via crusading – the first ends up as limited/discriminating Ecclesia that can never encompass all humanity, the second tend to be the mirror opposite of paedophiles (both different sides of the same coin), the third depending on the victory of defeat are intended REVISIONISTS or book burners that will rewrite history and befuddle the minds of future generations as typical barbarians do.

It is well possible that overpopulation with low caste persons lowers spiritual power of man overall, that population needs to be lowered so that other species can grow to balance humanity or somehow have other species match humanity’s growth to balance energic balance, humans per se are not balanced emanators of energy, without the other lifeforms’ emanations – which will gather in spirit (en masse) in HUMANS instead to which any individual’s will (the more balanced the more right being given to determine the destiny of the planet) may express itself.

India constructing larger replica of Angkor Wat – The new version of the landmark is set to become the world’s largest Hindu temple complex – by Zoe Li, Hong Kong Editor 6 March, 2012

Angkor Wat replicaThe symbol of Cambodia, soon to be shared by Bihar, India.

Imitation might be the the sincerest form of flattery, but in the global tourism racket replication is the sincerest form of poaching on someone else’s turf.

There’s the “Eiffel Tower” in Las Vegas, and, of course, the entire Austrian village currently being cloned by a Chinese company.

None of these “if you can’t beat ’em, copy ’em” projects, however, are as audacious as the one now underway in India, where a larger version of Cambodia’s UNESCO World Heritage Site Angkor Wat is being built on the banks of the Ganges in the state of Bihar.

A foundation-laying ceremony for the temple took place on March 5 at the 16-hectare site near Hajipur, about 25 kilometers north of Bihar’s capital Patna.

The Mahavir Mandir Trust will undertake the US$20 million project that will take an estimated 10 years to complete. The trust has built a number of hospitals and temples in Bihar, mainly funded by donations.

“The launch of the project has been timed to coincide with the ongoing centenary year celebrations of the foundation of Bihar,” the trust’s secretary, Acharya Kishore Kunal, told The Hindustan Times.

Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s national icon and was built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II.

It was first a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Later it became a Buddhist site.

Bihar’s version of Angkor Wat will be called Virat Angkor Wat Ram temple. It hopes to claim the title of world’s largest Hindu temple complex with the tallest point reaching 67.6 meters, slightly taller than the original.

“The selected site for construction of the temple has mythological significance,” said Kunal of the site in the Vaishali district. “It is believed that the deities Ram, Lakshman and Vishvamitra had visited and were welcomed by King Sumati of the Vaishali kingdom.”

Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s biggest tourist draw and appears on the Cambodian flag. The number of foreign visitors at Cambodia’s Angkor Wat Archaeological Park reached 206,000 in January 2012, nearly 30 percent more than the same month last year.

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

Occult Theories on what is going on behind a supposedly simple building project.

Look here, the Chola Imperium and other ethnic Indian empires dominated alongside China, the Indo-Chinese region all the way to the borders of China, Australia, up to Zoroastrian Persia (modern Iran, less so Afghanistan, tajikistan and Pakistan though Indian cultural influences are known to have had headways even then – at least until the 2nd Crusade Golden Horde Mongols charged through the region after the first crusade as Hun Mongols possibly . . . ) and controlled even the southern and middle regions of the Malay (Orang Asli) archipelago and the Western parts Indonesia. That is why there was even an Angkor Wat at all. What this building does, is recall and revive the Indian Hindu-cratic Imperium centralised in India. The Cham and other co-opted proto-Malay/Orang-Asli/Aboriginal peoples were very much Hindu for centuries (until the rise of the Malacca Sultanate perhaps?) and mixed with Indian bloodlines in some cases.

This is no copy but a REVIVAL. Who knows the Vaishali Court could be revived as well? If India installs a High Priest at this new temple with the appropriate symbolism and intent etc.. Cambodia could well again be a spiritual colony of India rather than a spiritual PUPPET of the West. Cambodia, you should know that your neighbours are Asians and headed by India and China, why do you attempt to be the Israel of East Asia and try to offend these 2 powers? The more we look at things, Hollywood appears more like a propaganda weapon than anything else, while entertaining, being full of agenda makes the outfit not much pleasure to be around.

if you can’t beat ’em, copy ’em” is inaccurate, India CAN actually beat Cambodia military at any time, and is not copying Cambodia but REMINDING ‘them’ instead where the Angkor Wat structure was conceived. Nepal is where Buddhism came from, India is where Hinduism came from, the architecture in Angkor is HINDU. The Buddhists merely co-opted the structure. Quite rude of CNN to say this is copying, more skewed reporting CNN? If you read Buddhist history, a terrible affront was made to Agni by cobnversion of Agni’s worshippers to Buddhism during the would be egregore Buddha’s early days, and shaving of their hair (which are the gift of the gods).

Occultism wise, this is India’s (and also Hinduism’s) response to the seemingly innocuous ‘The Cradle of Life’ Die Wiege des Lebens 2003 and nominally the ‘Temple of Doom’ Steven Spielberg 1984. Fully expect that Die Wiege des Lebens and Steve Spielberg are BOTH Masons and Occultists, Hindu India is now retaliating and ‘recalling’ if you ask me. Both Buddhism and Hinduism are fighting for dominance with West partly using Buddhism, making spiritual inroads into Indo-China via Cambodia AND Buddhism as well as Tibet AND Buddhism – suffice to say Buddhism is being used as a weapon of ‘Reverse Spiritual Colonisation’ against the East (or the Indian and Chinese members of the BRICS – Russia and the best of Marxism only being partially subverted through Gorbachev).

There’s the “Eiffel Tower” in Las Vegas that is occult in intent (siphoning off the luck of of France to that gambling capital if you ask me), and, of course, the entire Austrian village currently being cloned by a Chinese company is a way to keep tourist dollars back home, and for the poorer Chinese who cannot afford the exchange rate and may never get to go to Europe because it the trip will be too expensive. I think after these series of events, the ether and astral would be conscious and aware of what is happening in film and satellite emissions henceforth. There will be no more trickery of the akhasic and any ‘God-forms’ via these false events that have no reality equivalent in the physical world.

If the colonial powers would be ready to return all stolen physical artifacts as identified throughout this blog, they may yet have a future among the conscientious and honest among mankind whatever their faith system, otherwise Arizona (perhaps the worst of slaughters in NAs???) and California (Hollywood may have brought down that state) and any other locations offending, (for a start at any rate) will be ‘finished’.

TE Lawrence’s diaries – Ubar – location of Iram / Iram- city of Pillars / Iram- city of Pillars

Set in the sweltering Arabic deserts and other locales, Nathan Drake is once again accompanied by Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan in a quest to find the mythical city ‘Iram of the Pillars’ .

The story goes that Iram was a magnificent city that was the jewel of the desert sand. Many ancient kings and kingdoms traded with Iram and it flourished unperturbed until a chance encounter with the Deity, who disapproved of certain practice. According to Islamic texts Legend has it that the King Shahhad defied warnings from a prophet Husd regarding certain practices and God unleashed huis fury on the city. It was driven into the sands, its glory, wealth and its people perishing into the endless sands of the desert. Referred to in some texts as Ubar ( it is the region that is called Ubar and the people Ubarites) Iram is considered forever lost. Westerners become aware of this legendary lost city in the translations of 1001 Arabian Nights. The legendary Lawrence of Arabia himself, TE Lawrence, referred to the city as the ‘Atlantis of the Sands’.

Now here’s a spiritual theory on the spiritual background alongside the comings and goings of political parties and the original peoples of East Malaysia which the village shamans of the Orang Asli, (Orang Asli being the original inhabitants of East Malaysia since 50,000 b.c. or even earlier, with Nusantaran Animism the original faith system 1000s of years old, and Islam only present from the later 1800s onwards for East Malaysia and 1200s for West Malaysia . . . ), could best relate to.

When DAP of the Pakatan Coalition used the ‘Ubah’ puppet (as the ‘initiated’ or those studied know – the mascot has a variable power of sorts – which is why China dropped the 5 cartoon mascots for their own Olympics at the last moment) using the innocuous Hornbill no less, to court the OrangAsli with, DAP was in fact  mounting a spiritual attack on the orang asli’s spiritualism. The intent was to make Ubah the mascot of the Orang Asli, and be extension make Ubah UBAR and thus related that the Orang Asli are a ‘LOST’ people, removing the shamanistic Nusantaran Animist ‘Deitys influence ‘ which doubtless has similarity to the UBAR Deity.

Figured the Pakatan creeps' NLP based modus operandi out?

By making the ‘Deity’ think the Orang Asli were ‘lost’ (as UBAR is mixed up with UBAH) and no longer there, the protection of the Orang Asli mind would be no longer extended (the Deity has alot of work elsehwere on Earth AT ALL TIMES in ALL PLACES) and open up the Orang Asli to conversions by the Christians (DAP) and Muslims (PAS). Once again I remind, Pakatan is no pure minded coalition and with this form of spiritual insult, the Orang Asli might as well vote speecifically ONLY for Orang Asli and Nusantaran Animist candidates. This is no attack on any monotheistic faith but an exhortation to use honesty instead of sneaky proselytization to ‘convert’ and destroy the Nusantaran Animist faith of an already oppressed people who have had much of their land stolen and still no solution to regain what they have lost via rampant, likely illegal issuance of citizenships to specifically people ready to conveniently convert to Islam to ‘occupy’ East Malaysia. Except by voting only Orang Asli and East Malaysian born persons, there is no other way to preserve this spiritual tradition or regain the Orang Asli’s sovereignty.

Finally Borneo likely could be considered a single item and may need a form of autonomy from both Malaysia and Indonesia and union spiritually within the peoples living on Borneo. If this post is offensive, please inform, I will edit and remove if necessary.

UN passes symbolic condemnation of Syrian government – Published: 17 February, 2012, 01:27 Edited: 17 February, 2012, 09:46

Members of the United Nations General Assembly vote to endorse the Arab League’s plan for Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad to step aside, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York February 16, 2012 (Reuters / Andrew Kelly)

The UN General Assembly has called on Syrian President Assad to step down. The resolution passed Thursday is worded similarly to a document vetoed in the UN Security Council by Russia and China. The adopted resolution has no executive power.

­The Assembly has passed the Egypt-sponsored resolution with 137 in favor, 12 against and 17 abstaining. It blames the Syrian government for “widespread and systematic” violation of human rights, and voices support for an Arab League plan for a transition of power in the country.

Russia and China voted against it, as expected. Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin lashed out at the resolution, saying it was one-sided and failed to condemn the opposition for their part of the violence as it does condemn the government. The resolution is in line with what Moscow sees as a trend “to isolate the Syrian leadership, reject any contacts with it, and impose a form of political settlement from abroad”.

“The violence in Syria must be stopped by all parties, and the necessary decisions may only be reached through an open political process led by Syrians themselves,” the Ambassador said.

US Ambassador Susan Rice, who praised the adoption of the resolution, confirmed that America’s goal is to chase the Syrian government into a corner: “Bashar al-Assad has never been more isolated. A rapid transition to democracy in Syria has garnered the resounding support of the international community. Change must now come.”

Britain, France, Egypt and some other nations supporting the resolution said it sends a powerful and clear message to the Syrian government.

China’s ambassador to the UN Wang Min backed Moscow’s position, saying: “The actions of the international community should be aimed at easing tensions, promoting political dialogue… rather than aggravating the problem.”

Syrian Ambassador to the UN Bashar Jaafari prior to the vote warned the resolution would send a wrong message to those “behind terrorism and sabotage” in Syria and undermine the authority of the United Nations. He called the document “biased” and “sponsored by the countries involved in a hostile campaign against Damascus and interested in fuelling the conflict”.

Unlike the UN Security Council, no country has a veto right at the 193-member-strong UN General Assembly. However, General Assembly resolutions are not legally binding and only serve as recommendations to the UN Security Council. This makes Thursday’s document more symbolic than policy making.

Syria has been facing violence for 11 months now. More than 5,000 people have been killed, according to UN estimates, and some 25 thousand have become refugees.

Critics of the Syrian government say it is using force against its own population in an attempt to quash a pro-democratic drive in the country. Damascus says it is under a subtle attack from abroad, as its enemies are arming and sponsoring bandits to ramp up the violence and carrying out a massive smear campaign in the international media.

Russia and China have opposed what they see as a rushed and unbalanced UN action against the Syrian government, citing the negative example in Libya, where a UN Security Council resolution, which was meant to stop violent clashes, resulted in a months-long bombing campaign and forced regime change.

Proponents of putting more pressure on Damascus accuse Moscow and Beijing of abusing their power to protect economic interests in the region. Meanwhile critics of the anti-Assad drive say the west and its allies in the Persian Gulf say they want to oust the Syrian government to cripple the country’s key regional ally Iran.

I believe that the BRICS-ALBA-PIIGS and any non-UN groupings such as NAM may have the right to remove their map representations of their country from the UN logo.

While countries in ‘good standing’ will have no issue with being on the UN logo, it is presumptuous to place a country within the UN logo (unless blacked  out or severely faded) which the UN brands a pariah with sanctions or has destroyed the economy with IMF compound interest (usury)/attacked economy via inapplicable trade regulations, or has IGNORED the pleas of, in situations of war by not sending Peacekeepers,or has sent Peacekeepers to effectively aid in an indirect form of ENGLISH colonisation.

The UN has been less than neutral to SOME nations and I believe that the map on the logo of the UN could be subject to any demand by any DISENFRANCHISED or even colonized nation to remove their country’s silhoutte from the UN logo immediately.

This is a right and a form of IP protection and demand to disallow misrepresentation that the country is a part of the UN. Some countries of course are guilty of abuses that have warranted the above actions though the intent towards international hegemony via the UN, or (recognition of microstates that skew the representation of votes by population) is equally unacceptable.

A multipolar world, not one dominated by a single grouping is safer for all the world’s citizens. All UNFAIRLY disenfranchised nations or nations believing they have been taken advantage of or manipulated or even lost language, faith and culture due to unwanted UN influence where valid, should demand that their nation’s silhoute be REMOVED or represented in a manner on a UN logo that shows a state of non-participation.

A multipolar world, made of EU, AU, ALBA, BRICS, OIC, ASEAN, UN and UIN, will be a safer and more people friendly form (also more competitive in social freedoms) than a single UN grouping dominating the world. By this suggestion UN thus should be subject to injunction that disallowes UN to misrepresent on UN’s logo, nations UN has ‘destroyed’ or ‘currently oppress’ as if those nations were treated as equals.

Queen ‘Bersih’ meets Najib – by by Wong Choon Mei – 15th July 2011 (Malaysia Chronicle)

In Malaysia, misplaced adoration, Straw-women, Strawmen, War on January 30, 2012 at 2:16 pm
Queen ‘Bersih’ meets Najib Britain’s Queen Elizabeth greeted Prime Minister Najib Razak during an audience at Buckingham Palace in central London on Thurdsay. What could not be missed was the bright yellow dress worn by the British monarch, known for her subtlety and wit. But amused or not, Najib and wife Rosmah Mansor bowed low before Her Majesty despite the unmistakable the shade of yellow she sported and which had been adopted by Bersih, a Malaysian movement for free and fair elections that was recently outlawed by Najib. In the scandal sheets again over a gargantuan diamond ring said to be worth RM24.4mil (or about US$8mil), Rosmah also made sure to keep her hands tightly clasped during the photo-shoot. But even so, she could not resist wearing a string of pearls the size of marbles. However, it was not Rosmah’s jewellery or lavish spending that set tongues wagging.
It was the yellow of Queen E’s dress that drew attention. Even the flowers in the vase were yellow, and it is believed the Queen chose the colour to send a strong signal to Najib, who had ordered a harsh crackdown on a peaceful citizens march organised by Bersih last Saturday. The July 9 Walk for Democracy saw police shooting tear gas and chemicalized water directly into the crowds that thronged the streets of Kuala Lumpur, leaving thousands injured and one dead. More than 1,600 were arrested and several remain in remand without trial. Calls to resign Calls are mounting for Najib to step down but he has ignored these, galling his countrymen further with comments that underscore a growing arrogance and desperation to cling to power at all costs. “It was quite mild because although they were taken in, they were released after eight hours and they were treated really well. There was no undue use of force and the demonstrators were dispersed using minimum force,” Najib told CNN.
The United Nations and Washington have earlier in the week issued separate statements rebuking the Malaysian crackdown. “We are very concerned by the recent crackdown on peaceful demonstrators by the government in Malaysia,” Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights told AFP. “We are alarmed at the targeting of individuals for championing the rights of Malaysian citizens to express their opinions and to peacefully assemble.” At 10, Downing Street Bersih is a coalition of 62 top NGOs and had organised the July 9 march to draw citizens’ support for free and fair elections. But Najib insists there is nothing wrong with the existing system and has blamed Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim for stirring up trouble. Meanwhile, in London, Najib also met his British counterpart David Cameron for talks aimed at boosting bilateral relations. Earlier, the Malaysian leader was met on arrival at at the UK Foreign and Commowealth Affairs Office by its Secretary of State William Hague, before walking a short distance to meet Cameron at 10, Downing Street. In the Malaysian delegation was also Najib’s cousin, Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein. Hisham had outlawed Bersih in a bid to suppress its call for a cleanup of the country’s notoriously corrupt electoral system. He also gave the green light for a string of arrests that have been described as a “binge of madness” by the Malaysian civil society. Anyone who wore yellow in the days running up to the Bersih rally was arrested on the spot. Would Hisham arrest the Queen then? – Malaysia Chronicle

Response : I think you forget the Russian and Greek Orthodox Popes are more valid and older than the Catholic Church which after being corrupted by European Royalty and society for centuries, in turn leading to the Protestent faction forming and their departure and colonization of USA (and formation in Ireland) which too many indulged in killing of Red Indians, the Orang Asli of USA.
So when the English claim to be Christians, they really are forgetting their REAL faith and cultural roots, the polytheistic Tuatha Dé Danann of Celtic Druidism and the Holy Book of the Isles being the Mabinogi. Monotheistic Christianity is the 2nd incarnation of Judaism (nominally derived from Ra-worship of the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV – named ‘Heretic’ for being who was too lazy to worship many gods and thus invented Sun or Ra-Worship)), with Islam the 3rd form of monotheism originated from Prophet Mohammed who was supposedly contacted by Angel Jibril. Put it simply, the ‘whites’ copied from the Middle Easterners wholesale what they call Christianity and they went about proselytizing the same during the colonial era and beating up all other civilisations, out of sheer emptiness in their hearts than cultivate and seek their roots.

@pt said, ‘Poor Queen E must have been furously washing her hands after that.”Will these stains never be washed”‘.
Response : I think it should be the other way around but Najib though les sinful has not addressed apartheid or national issues honestly or with a PM’s authority.
@armchaircommentator said, ‘Her majesty is apolitical and has no foreign agenda. However she is well read and knowledgeable about members of the commonwealth and I suspect she was showing respect to Malaysia’s royalty and NR’s heritage?’
Response : If I were you, I’d stop being so pro-English. Colonialism and the after effects of Colonialism are indefensible. You’re allying with the wrong team fool.
@bigjoe said, ‘Well, if UMNO/BN does not change, maybe we should all say GOD SAVE THE QUEEN????’
Response : How about an Asian Monarch instead? What do you think the Agong is, chopped liver?
*** Commentary : This comment was not allowed on Malaysia Chronicle media portal. Either they are pro-Monotheism and fear Theological discussion based on truth, have been frightened into submission by who knows, the comments are against their agenda (whatever it is), or some of the commentators are within the clique. A media portal that does not respect freedom of speech does not deserve respect from it’s readers. This censorship trend on among the best of Malaysia oriented media portals, is quite disturbing. You serve the Rakyat and the reader, not your paymasters which if occurring makes you another media mercenary without journalistic ethics.
