Santa Ana City Council establishes a term limits committee – Posted by Art Pedroza on July 17th, 2012

Tonight’s Santa Ana City Council meeting, which was held at the SAPD’s Community Room, was, as predicted, a real zoo.  Media vans and news crews were everywhere and residents and out of town bloggers packed the proceedings.

As we stated in an earlier post, Council Member Carlos Bustamante, who is facing serious felony sex crime and public theft charges, was not likely to show up, and he didn’t.  This is his second unexcused absence.  After sixty days of not showing up to work, at City Hall, the City Council can

dump him and appoint someone to fill out his term.

Three City Council members — Michele Martinez, Sal Tinajero and Vince Sarmiento — have called for Bustamante’s resignation, according to the L.A. Times.  Predictably Bustamante’s longtime ally, David Benavides  is not calling for Bustamante’s resignation.  Is anyone surprised by that?

Bustamante and Benavides flew to Washington D.C. together, back in the day, to attend a Cinco de Mayo event put on by past President George W. Bush.  They were pals and together they served at the whim of the Usual Suspects.  Why would Benavides turn on his amigo now?

The Santa Ana City Council agreed tonight to form an Ad Hoc Committee to explore the term limit issue raised by Martinez, who placed the term limit issue on tonight’s agenda as an 85 A item.  The Ad Hoc Committee will include Martinez and her colleagues Sarmiento and Benavides.  They

have to get a ballot measure hammered out by the next City Council meeting if they want to make the November ballot.

As expected, the Usual Suspects showed up to rip Mayor Pro Tem Claudia Alvarez, but she let them have it, and then pointed out that Councilman David Benavides “had invited speakers to address the council on the lawsuit over Measure D, while pointing our reports of attacks on her by

Benavides and Bustamante,” according to the O.C. Register.  Of course we appreciated the referral!

And what is going on?  Well, if the lawsuit filed by Santa Ana Parks and Rec Commissioner Max Madrid succeeds, then the Santa Ana City Clerk will be compelled by the Court to give nomination papers to Alvarez.  She will then run for Ward 5 and win, period.  I fully expect SAUSD Trustee

Roman Reyna to run for reelection to the SAUSD School Board rather than face off with Alvarez, who already spanked him once in a previous Council election.  I am already seeing Reyna political signs around town – and they don’t mention the office he is running for.  LOL!  That Reyna is so

thrifty.  He printed one batch of signs that he can now use for either race.

We revealed yesterday that the only announced opponent to Alvarez, Karina Onofre, has in fact become a registered Republican.  She was also at tonight’s meeting, where she bragged that her Council campaign now has a billboard, somewhere on Main St.  Apparently Santa Ana Council

Member Sal Tinajero met with her earlier this year and he advised her to run instead for the SAUSD School Board.  He even offered to back her.  But she stubbornly refused to do so and instead she dumped the Democratic Party and became a Republican.  Good luck with that…

Bloomberg’s Term Limits : 3 for Him, but Only 2 for Everyone Else – by MICHAEL BARBARO and DAVID W. CHEN – October 25, 2010

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg thinks that being able to serve three terms in office is a good idea — just not for anyone else. – Eric Michael Johnson for The New York Times – Louis Lanzano/Associated Press

On Monday, in an unexpected confession, Mr. Bloomberg said he wanted to reverse the changes to the city’s term-limits law, which he successfully campaigned for in 2008. Those changes are now the subject of a little-publicized ballot initiative on Election Day.

The mayor said he would vote to restore a limit of two terms, down from three, and to ban the City Council from rewriting the rule for sitting elected officials, closing a legislative loophole that Mr. Bloomberg exploited in his quest to remain in office beyond eight years. The results of the ballot

initiative would not affect Mr. Bloomberg, but would affect his successors.

During a news conference, the mayor said that the term-limits initiative, which will appear on the back of the paper ballots on Nov. 2, was imperfect and badly designed, but that he would support it anyway.

“It’s better than what we have now,” Mr. Bloomberg said, without explaining why or acknowledging that his administration had written the existing law and heavily advocated for it.

It was the latest installment in the story of Mr. Bloomberg’s ever-evolving relationship with term limits. An outspoken supporter of two terms, he once called Council members who proposed extending them “disgraceful.” Then, as his own time in office wound down, he reversed himself and

advocated for three terms, saying they offered voters greater choice.

“You can make that case for two terms or three terms,” he said at the time. “In this case, after listening to everybody, I’ve been convinced that three terms is right.”

Now he seems to have settled on something of a compromise: three terms for him, and only him.

Mayoral allies pointed out that Mr. Bloomberg had kept his word by bringing the issue back to voters, who originally passed the two-term limit in a 1993 referendum, only to watch it be dismantled by the mayor and the Council.

Mr. Bloomberg’s sudden support for two terms puts him in line with most New Yorkers. A New York Times poll, conducted in August, found that nearly three-fourths of city voters favored undoing Mr. Bloomberg’s 2008 actions.

The mayor’s change of opinion will avert a showdown with a fellow billionaire, Ronald S. Lauder, the father of the city’s original 1993 law, who has opened his wallet to sponsor a commercial urging New Yorkers to vote for a return to two terms.

The advertisement, which will be broadcast over the next few days, instructs voters — with a wry tagline — to turn over their ballots to find the term-limits question and vote yes. “Flip over the ballot,” a narrator says, “and flip off the politicians.”

MICHAEL BARBARO

Guilt by Association?

Hardly a day goes by without the two leading candidates for New York governor, Andrew M. Cuomo and Carl P. Paladino, accusing each other, either on the campaign trail or in their advertising, of being the worst kind of Albany insider.

But now, they have expanded their universe of ill repute to include the people with whom they supposedly associate, too.

In dueling advertisements that were first broadcast over the weekend, the two paint each other as being uncomfortably close with people who have run afoul of ethical and legal standards.

In his advertisement, Mr. Paladino highlights Steven L. Rattner, the financier who recently reached a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission over his role in a New York pension fund kickbacks scandal; Andrew L. Farkas, the real estate magnate; and State Senator Pedro Espada

Jr., who recently lost his bid for re-election in the Democratic primary. “Albany insider Cuomo won’t clean up Albany,” the advertisement says.

Mr. Paladino is no stranger to trying to associate Mr. Cuomo with Albany insiders whom he considers to be ethically challenged. Just before the Sept. 14 primary, in a mailer that literally smelled like a garbage dump, Mr. Paladino lumped together Gov. David A. Paterson and Representative

Charles B. Rangel, both Democrats, as prime examples of officials responsible for bad government.

The ad strains credulity a bit, since Mr. Cuomo is not known for being particularly close to either Mr. Rattner or Mr. Espada. But Mr. Cuomo has had a rollercoaster of a relationship with Mr. Farkas: first as an adversary, when Mr. Cuomo was the nation’s housing secretary and investigated Mr.

Farkas for kickbacks to a landlord; then as an ally, when Mr. Cuomo got not just a job from Mr. Farkas, but also hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions.

Mr. Cuomo did not take long to hit back. In two similar advertisements released on Sunday, Mr. Cuomo criticized Mr. Paladino for surrounding himself with top campaign aides with checkered pasts. These include Michael R. Caputo, his campaign manager, who has failed to pay almost $53,000 in

federal taxes over the past few years, and John F. Haggerty Jr., a political strategist, who was indicted this summer by the Manhattan district attorney, and was accused of stealing $1.1 million from the last candidate he backed, Mr. Bloomberg.

“You can’t clean up Albany with dirty hands,” concludes the ad, which is one of the toughest ones Mr. Cuomo has released.

Mr. Caputo has said that Mr. Paladino appreciated the can-do spirit of his closest supporters, and considered them to be “junkyard dogs, not pedigreed poodles.” DAVID W. CHEN

Increase in ‘professional politicians’ means one in seven MPs have never done a real job (and that includes Ed Miliband) – by Jason Groves – PUBLISHED: 23:54 GMT, 18 July 2012 | UPDATED: 00:09 GMT, 19 July 2012

Labour leader Ed Miliband has little to no experience of a working life outside politics

One in seven MPs have never had a proper job, according to research.

And in addition to those who have absolutely no experience of working in the real world, many more have served only brief stints as lobbyists or public relations advisers before entering politics full-time.

The study by the House of Commons Library reveals a dramatic rise in the number of so-called professional politicians, whose numbers have increased almost four-fold over the past 30 years.

Ninety MPs have never held a job outside politics, against 20 in 1982.

The trend is led by Labour, which has twice as many MPs who have never worked outside politics as either the Conservatives or Liberal Democrats.

Labour leader Ed Miliband is among those who have never had a significant job outside politics.

Instead, he served a long apprenticeship as a special adviser to Gordon Brown.

Another is Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, who worked for a year as a Brussels lobbyist and dabbled for a few months in journalism before taking a job with the European Commission.

The study also reveals that working class MPs, who played a key role in the politics of the last century, have become an endangered species.

Former independent MP Martin Bell said the figures highlighted a dangerous trend, which had left modern politicians increasingly disconnected from real life.

Not alone: Ed Miliband is not the only senior Labour politician who lacks non-politics work on his CV: Both Ed Balls and his wife Yvette Cooper were journalists before entering politics

‘It is a very dangerous development,’ the former BBC war reporter said. ‘One of the effects is that there is a growing gulf between politicians and the people, the government and the governed.

‘Another damaging result of the rise of the professional politician is that we send our armed forces too war far too nonchalantly because there are very few people with any experience of armed conflict.

‘Politics has become an attractive career for some bright young things who see it as a job for life. The trouble is that it leaves them prisoners of the party machine. They know that if they are deselected they are unemployable because they have never had a proper job. That leaves them at the mercy of the whips.’

The analysis by the Commons Library shows that 90 MPs have never held a job outside politics, compared to just 20 in 1982. Of these 52 are Labour MPs, 31 are Tories and seven are Lib Dems. In total, a fifth of Labour MPs are now professional politicians, compared to a tenth of Conservatives.

Other senior Labour figures who have little experience outside politics include the Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper, who worked briefly as a journalist before becoming a Labour MP, and her husband, the Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls, who worked as a journalist for four years before serving a decade-long apprenticeship to Gordon Brown.

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg worked as a journalist and lobbyist for a brief period of time before taking a job with the European Commission

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is another with little experience outside politics, having worked for a year as a Brussels lobbyist and dabbled for a few months with journalism before taking a job with the European Commission.

David Cameron worked in a public relations role for seven years at Carlton Television before becoming an MP in 2001. But he had already cut his teeth at Westminster during several years as a Tory adviser.

Shadow Cabinet Office Minister Jon Trickett said this week that about a quarter of MPs had been ‘full-time politicos already’ before entering Parliament.

Mr Trickett said Labour was keen to recruit more working class MPs in future, saying it was ‘important that our MPs reflect all the different parts of our country’.

But the latest research reveals that working class MPs have all but disappeared from Westminster. Just 25 former manual workers were elected as MPs in 2010, compared to 98 in 1979. Almost all of them are Labour MPs.

By contrast, the number of MPs from white collar backgrounds has increased from just nine in 1979 to 84 today. The number of teachers has halved to just 24, but the number of lawyers has declined only slightly to 86.

This is the problem with TERM LIMITLESS ‘Careerist’ political oligarchy that ends up with political satrapies that result in JFKs or Bhuttos Assassinations or Ampatuan Massacres. The fastest way to end democracy is to allow TERM LIMITLESS nepotism in government. Before the voters know, suddenly all MPs or Congressmen’s seats will be handed down to family members and democracy would have been replaced with a political feudalism no different from before the French Revolution or American War of Independence. There will be no way to displace these oligarchs and plutocrats except by violence AGAIN . . .

Anyone who writes laws that do not include term limits in government posts that allow amendments of laws (a great power that no citizen should be allowed to hold too long – too often today’s MPs and Governors or lawmakers end up withholding much needed amendments of laws – much in the manner the same term limitless types create loopholes that allow collusion with crony capitalists, Military Industrial Complex, Prison-Supplier-Contractor Complex – they keep bad laws in place to enrich this group, Education-Loan-Debt-Banker Complex etc..), or boldfacedly approves family members ‘taking over’ after themselves, give themselves ‘Parliamentary privileges’ off the people’s taxes, or wages far above the average-wage, are in effect unethical and greedy closet dictators and profiteers much like the 1%, off a flawed system.

Worse still are the deadwood of 2 generations past WITH family blocs to boot keeping the country stagnant via profiteering, outmoded legal and even outmoded Human Rights mindsets like fundamentalism or Forced Military Conscriptions, refusal to amend bad laws, with the very worst keeping APARTHEID alive, amongst other bad things ‘old school’ and careerist politicians (more so if ALSO old aged and TERM LIMITLESS and with family blocs . . .) represent and take away from the 99% of voters.

It’s legal: cops seize cell phone, impersonate owner – Court says sending texts using a seized iPhone doesn’t violate privacy rights. – by Timothy B. Lee – Jul 19, 2012 3:03 pm UTC

In November 2009, police officers in the state of Washington seized an iPhone belonging to suspected drug dealer Daniel Lee. While the phone was in police custody, a man named Shawn Hinton sent a text message to the device, reading, “Hey whats up dogg can you call me i need to talk to you.” Suspecting that Hinton was looking to buy drugs from Lee, Detective Kevin Sawyer replied to the message, posing as Lee. With a series of text messages, he arranged to meet Hinton in the parking lot of a local grocery store—where Hinton was arrested and charged with attempted possession of heroin.

Hinton wasn’t Sawyer’s only target. According to a court decision summing up the facts, “Sawyer spent about 5 or 10 minutes looking at some of the text messages on the iPhone; he also looked to see who had been calling. Many of the text messages that Lee’s iPhone had received and stored were from individuals who were seeking drugs from Lee.”

So Sawyer texted one of the individuals on the list and asked him if he “needed more.” The individual, Jonathan Roden, replied, “Yeah, that would be cool. I still gotta sum, but I could use some more. I prefer to just get a ball, so I’m only payin’ one eighty for it, instead of two Ts for two hundred, that way.” (The court helpfully explained that a “ball” is “a drug weight equivalent to approximately 3.5 grams.”)

But can cops legally do this with seized cell phones? When their cases went to trial, Hinton and Roden both argued that Sawyer had violated their privacy rights by intercepting, without a warrant, private communications intended for Lee.

But in a pair of decisions, one of which was recently covered by Forbes, a Washington state appeals court disagreed. If the decisions, penned by Judge Joel Penoyar and supported by one of his colleagues, are upheld on appeal, they could have far-reaching implications for cell phone privacy.
“No longer private or deserving of constitutional protection”

“There is no long history and tradition of strict legislative protection of a text message sent to, displayed, and received from its intended destination, another person’s iPhone,” Penoyar wrote in his decision. He pointed to a 1990 case in which the police seized a suspected drug dealer’s pager as an example. The officers observed which phone numbers appeared on the pager, called those numbers back, and arranged fake drug purchases with the people on the other end of the line.

A federal appeals court held that the pager owner’s Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure were not violated because the pager is “nothing more than a contemporary receptacle for telephone numbers,” akin to an address book. The court also held that someone who sends his phone number to a pager has no reasonable expectation of privacy because he can’t be sure that the pager will be in the hands of its owner.

Judge Penoyar said that the same reasoning applies to text messages sent to an iPhone. While text messages may be legally protected in transit, he argued that they lose privacy protections once they have been delivered to a target device in the hands of the police. He claimed that the same rule applied to letters and e-mail. (Police would still need to seize or search a phone or computer legally, and phones are much easier for cops to seize than computers, which generally require a warrant.)

“On his own iPhone, on his own computer, or in the process of electronic transit, Hinton’s communications are shielded by our constitutions,” he wrote, referring to both the state and federal constitutions. “But after their arrival, Hinton’s text messages on Lee’s iPhone were no longer private or deserving of constitutional protection.” Penoyar rejected Roden’s privacy arguments on similar grounds.

Unsettled law

Mobile phones exist in a constitutional grey area. The law has well-developed doctrines protecting the privacy of our desktop computers, landline telephones, and filing cabinets. But modern cell phones perform all of these functions, and more. If the police are free to rummage through any cell phone that falls into their hands, every arrest would automatically give the police access to a treasure trove of private data that they would otherwise need a warrant, based on probable cause, to obtain.

The Washington State decision is not unprecedented. Last year, the California Supreme Court ruled that no warrant was required for the police to peruse a cell phone that was confiscated after its owner tried to sell ecstasy to an undercover police officer. In that case, the police obtained a text message that seemed to confirm the government’s case against the suspect. Two justices of the California Supreme Court dissented from the ruling.

One judge dissented from the Washington State rulings as well. “Sawyer engaged in a continuing search when he first searched the contacts list on Daniel Lee’s iPhone to find Hinton’s phone number,” wrote Judge Marywave Van Deren in her dissent. Sawyer “used Lee’s iPhone to send and receive messages from Hinton. Under these circumstances, I would hold that Sawyer was required to obtain a search warrant.”

In a slightly different context, the Obama administration has also held that the contents of cell phones enjoy constitutional protection. Earlier this year, the Department of Justice filed a brief in a Maryland case arguing that Baltimore police had violated a man’s constitutional rights—including his Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure—when they seized his phone and deleted videos he had taken of the officers’ conduct.

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

Court says sending texts using a seized iPhone doesn’t violate privacy rights.

But this is also unethical and can cause immense economic and social harm, both of which are illegal and thus the word of the law has subsumed the spirit of the law. Law which is not whole and considers wording ONLY, above *spirit* and *intention* as well as “*due diligence* in study or consideration of the negative indirect or peripheral social and economic effects” of use of such phones, amounts to INJUSTICE. In this case only the wording of the law is adhered to. Sending texts using a seized iPhone is not legal otherwise. The Court has ruled wrongly and neglected the 3 other aspects listed above. Bad judgment!

Judge’s fury at nightclub’s ‘kids’ nights’ for under 18s which ‘encourage drinking and drug-taking’ – By Anna Edwards – PUBLISHED: 11:11 GMT, 24 July 2012 | UPDATED: 13:34 GMT, 24 July 2012

Judge questions parents who allow their children to attend club nights
Attack comes after 13-year-old girl accused 30-year-old man of sexual assault after he gave her a lift
Bristol judge warns events pose ‘very real threat’ to youngsters

Scathing: Judge David Ticehurst questioned the motives of club organisers and parents who allowed their children to attend the events

A judge has attacked nightclubs for holding ‘kids’ nights’, warning that children who attend will be tempted to try alcohol and drugs.

Judge David Ticehurst’s scathing words came after a 13-year-old girl who attended an under-18s night made sexual assault allegations against a man who gave her a lift.

The respected judge, who sits at Bristol Crown Court, blasted nightclubs for hosting events which posed a ‘real danger’ to their young clientele.

He also called the club organisers ‘naive’ to assume youngsters would not drink at the alcohol-free events and claimed they would be more tempted to try drugs and ‘behave dangerously’.

Judge Ticehurst questioned the motives of the club organisers and parents who allow their children to attend such nights after hearing about the case of one schoolgirl.

Bristol Crown Court heard that the 13-year-old girl – who had drunk alcohol – had partied at Oceana nightclub in the city during a £10 ‘Love Social’ event aimed at under-18s.

Officers were called to look for the girl and a friend after they were reported missing at 1.30am after the event, which finished at 11pm. They were found at 5am.

Judge David Ticehurst halted the sexual assault trial, ruling that inconsistencies in evidence meant there was no case to answer against the accused 30-year-old man from Bristol.

But in making his ruling he said: ‘I want to say something about Oceana and its so-called kids’ night.

Love Social: Oceana nightclub, in Bristol, hosts under 18 nights which Judge Ticehurst said would encourage youngsters to try drink and drugs

‘That a nightclub should advertise and seek to attract children between the ages of 13 to 16 is in my view a regrettable step.

‘The club’s closing time of 11pm inevitably means that those attending will probably not be home until midnight or later.

‘. . . naive to assume that these youngsters will not drink alcohol even if it is not provided by the club.

‘ . . . naive to assume that they will not be tempted by other and more pernicious substances.

‘ . . . naive to assume that they may not be tempted to behave in a way that may be dangerous and damaging to them.’

Oceana, owned by entertainment giant Luminar, is a chain of 10 nightclubs situated around the country, with venues in cities including Leeds and Nottingham.
The Judge launched his attack after hearing details about a 13-year-old’s attendance at one of the nights, that charge youngsters £10 entry

The Judge launched his attack after hearing details about a 13-year-old’s attendance at one of the nights, that charge youngsters £10 entry

‘Love Social’ events – touted as ‘inspirational and credible clubbing’ for 13-17-year-olds – are held in numerous Luminar clubs.

Youngsters at the events can enjoy ‘the most awesome time’, with music, free soft drinks, a free cloakroom and free queue jump.

The events have a complete ban on alcohol, tobacco and gambling sales, a proof of age requirement and a strict code of conduct for staff and a child protection policy.

Teenagers who are believed to have consumed drugs or alcohol should not be allowed entry, the rules state.

But Judge Ticehurst said the events posed a ‘very real danger’ to children and said those who attended were ‘inevitably and mainly the most vulnerable’.

He added: ‘It is not difficult to imagine the type of parental support forthcoming from parents who are content that their 13, 14, 15 or even 16-year-olds should attend such a venue, whether it is in school time or holiday time.’

The judge went on to question whether the club – which charged 832 teens £10 for the event attended by the girl – was ‘doing it for the good of the children’.

He said: ‘In my judgement this case demonstrates all too readily the very real dangers of such a venue and its attractiveness to those who may need protection from themselves.’

Luminar was unavailable to comment.

A Love Social event was due to take place at the club tonight, with more planned for August, October and December.

A list of required reading (some tests related), a ‘Night Club Maturity Test’ (NCMT) and a ‘Kid’s Licence’ should solve the issue. Parental consent is not the issue, The former is more important as even ADULTS or the aged, who fail the required reading or NCMT should be disallowed entry because the ‘adults’ have the maturity and mindset of children (read those who consistently get drunk or into fights again and again are the least matured . . . ) !

‘I’m not protecting anyone that made my life a living hell’: Teen faces jail for tweeting names of two boys who sexually assaulted HER – by Daily Mail Reporter – PUBLISHED: 21:06 GMT, 21 July 2012 | UPDATED: 13:11 GMT, 22 July 2012

A 17-year-old sexual assault victim is facing a jail sentence for tweeting the names of her attackers in anger at their light punishment.

Savannah Dietrich named and shamed the boys on the social messaging site, writing: ‘There you go, lock me up. I’m not protecting anyone that made my life a living Hell.’

The teenager told from Louisville, Kentucky told The Courier-Journal she was frustrated by what she feels is a lenient deal for her attackers.

Savannah Dietrich named and shamed the boys on the social messaging site, writing: ‘There you go, lock me up. I’m not protecting anyone that made my life a living Hell’

Anger: Savannah Dietrich used a Twitter message to name  and shame the boys who sexually abused her

MailOnline does not normally report the names of sexual assault victims, but Miss Dietrich and her parents say they do not want to shield her identity and want her case to be public.

The boys’ attorneys have asked a judge to hold Miss Dietrich in contempt for violating the confidentiality of a juvenile hearing and the judge’s order not to speak about it.

Miss Dietrich told the paper she was assaulted in August 2011 by two boys she knew when she passed out after drinking at a gathering. She learned months later that pictures of the assault were taken and shared with others.

‘For months, I cried myself to sleep. I couldn’t go out in public places,’ she told the newspaper, as her father and attorneys sat nearby. ‘You just sit there and wonder, who saw (the pictures), who knows?’

Miss Dietrich’s attorneys want her contempt hearing open to the media, arguing she has a First Amendment right to speak about her case and to a public hearing. The boys’ attorneys, however, have asked to keep the hearing closed.

The contempt charge carries a possible sentence of 180 days in jail and a $500 fine.

The boys pleaded guilty on June 26 to first-degree sexual abuse and misdemeanor voyeurism. Miss Dietrich says she was unaware of a plea agreement until just before it was announced in court.

She could not say what the proposed punishment was because of the court order, but said she feels like it was a slap on the wrist. The teens are to be sentenced next month, and the judge could reject or modify the terms of the proposed agreement.

Dietrich cried when the judge at the Jefferson District Court told her she couldn’t talk about what had happened

When Judge Dee McDonald admonished everyone at the hearing not to speak about what happened in court or about the crime, Dietrich said she cried.

‘They got off very easy… and they tell me to be quiet, just silencing me at the end,’ she said.

Afterwards Miss Dietrich tweeted, ‘They said I can’t talk about it or I’ll be locked up… Protect rapist is more important than getting justice for the victim in Louisville.’

David Marburger, an Ohio media law specialist, said Dietrich should have tried to get the courts to vacate the gag order rather than simply violating it.

But Gregg Leslie, interim executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, said Dietrich should ‘not be legally barred from talking about what happened to her. That’s a wide-ranging restraint on speech.’

Ms Leslie said this sort of issue is becoming more common.

‘In the past, people would complain to anyone who would listen, but they didn’t have a way to publish their comments where there would be a permanent record, like on Facebook and Twitter, for people to see worldwide,’ he said.

Miss Dietrich said she just needed to stand up for herself. ‘I’m at the point that if I have to go to jail for my rights, I will do it.’

Mass tweet is wrong. At most and acceptable, is notice board or lamp post based poster campaigns centred around no more than perhaps a legally sanctioned 30 kms of the crime scene. A tweet reaches beyond the district and reaches the whole nation and world, making life impossible for the offenders to live new lives for what is a session of rough sex, though the emotional wounds are not really quantifiable or easy to restore. Repeat offenders though would end up with more and more ‘unliveable blacklisted areas of 30 km radiuses’. No jail for this woman though, that would be wasteful and retrogressive, though after an explanation about how a victim’s inner life destroyed by rape IS NOT justifiable or equitable for destroying the OUTER LIVES of the aggressors  or related to the INNER LIVES of the aggressors which do not change even though the OUTER LIVES of the aggressors being destroyed would teach neither society not vitim nor aggressor how to behave or control themselves – an apology broadcast on the above issues should be made, the aggressors if internally unapologetic, could be put through gender sensitization courses at most.

Jail will not change anything except enrich prison contractor-supplier complex, shaming by society again makes no difference and could just create polarisation and a self righteous that becomes dangerous viciousness or self-justifying insanity, and if this socialised insanity justified upon the backs of both victim and aggressor gets into politics or mainstream society’s or even religion’s mindset, we end up with the laziness of a  ‘drug everyone is a solution’ psychiatric establishment, abusing intentionally induced victims/profiteering off medications imposed by the psychiatric establishment, and increasingly punitive or materialistic based punishments (to justify the lack of forethought and consideration which 99% of the world, no thanks to anglo-legal system, have become unfeeling and fines money based, meaningless corporeal punishment and jail term obsessed systems or Orwellian control paradigm society) by magistrates and judges.’

Instead of humanization and betterment and a sincere opportunity to normalize for all parties concerned.. Victims and aggressors are victims of society, amend the laws or create niches and subcultures to ensconce all facets of personality than humanity can express (i.e. lively Red Light Districts with Rape Fetish Clubs should end the need to rape – this should be included in syllabus or citizen’s manual for social studies (i.e. if you feel like doing such and such – list the whole gamut of whatever supposedly grey area actions which might otherwise be criminal, for non-consensual activity – go to location x,y,z where some beautiful/ugly/scary/boring etc.. people will act out your fantasy for you without running afoul of the law etc..) instead of punishing and fining no end to enrich the Prison Supplier-Contractor Complex where cronies doubtless profit and kickback to the term limitless politicians . . .

Briefing Courses for victims on the above punishment paradigms and equitable consideration for the rapists like not tweeting should be given after the report. Punishment in the above case meanwhile could be a live rape scene involving the attackers being raped for the victim if the victim wants that (this is the cheapest though less pleasant quick fix punishment – courtesy of the low minded nature of the victim incidentally . . . just wanted the rapists to suffer), or the rapists could be put to work with any number of hours of work with victims of other rapists in a manner that humnizes the victims (choose people similar to the persons that the attackers are fond of, or who are family members or figures they respect, lookalikes for stars they like etc..).

Anchorman and Modern Family star Fred Willard arrested after exposing himself at Hollywood adult movie theatre – by Daily Mail Reporter – PUBLISHED: 14:56 GMT, 19 July 2012 | UPDATED: 17:11 GMT, 19 July 2012

Arrested: Fred Willard exposed his genitals at an adult theatre last night

Actor Fred Willard was arrested last night of lewd conduct after exposing himself at an adult movie theatre.

The 78-year-old actor was taken into custody after being caught with his pants down and genitals exposed at Hollywood’s Tiki Theatre at around 8.45pm local time.

Willard – who has been married to wife Mary for 40 years – was later cited and a mug shot was taken, police told RadarOnline, adding that he was co-operative with authorities.

He was released from custody and is set to appear in court at a later date, the website reports.

According to TMZ, LAPD officers were conducting a ‘random walk-through’ of the premises – not a raid – as part of a routine inspection.

The three films currently showing at the cinema are Follow Me 2, a X-rated parody of The Client List and Step Dad No. 2.

Willard is know for his roles in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Anchorman and Everybody Loves Raymond.

Scene of the incident: Willard was at the Tiki Theatre in Hollywood

Movie star: Seen here in the Anchorman alongside Will Ferrell

The actor portrayed the news director of the KVWN news channel in Ferrell’s 2004 movie.

In 2010 he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series after making appearances in ABC’s Modern Family.

He played the part of Frank Dunphy, Phil Dunphy’s father.

And according to IMDB, Willard is rumoured to be in pre-production for a movie called The Yank.

In 1991 Hollywood actor Pee Wee Herman was infamously arrested for indecent exposure in an adult theatre in Florida, which ruined his career as children’s entertainer.
Emmy nod: He played a guest role in Modern Family as Frank Dunphy, seen here with Sofía Vergara Ed O’Neill

Married man: The actor has been married to wife Mary for 40 years

The inside of any adult venues could well be considered ‘nudism allowed zones’ though the theatre could state that patrons should expect or that nude or semi-nude persons could be present. The same could be applied to red light districts as well. Allowed Nudism areas and non-Nudism areas INSIDE red light districts. What is the management’s view? Nakedness or semi-nakedness in a adult theatre may be in line with common sense, though a non-nudist version of the same adult venue should also exist.

‘It was a really good shot’: What cannabis smoking thug told police after throwing his dog through TENTH FLOOR window – by Emma Reynolds – PUBLISHED: 15:15 GMT, 25 July 2012 | UPDATED: 15:39 GMT, 25 July 2012

Tied up dog in bathroom for four hours after it misbehaved
Returned at 3am and attacked the dog for relieving itself on the carpet
Diagnosed with schizophrenia after the episode
James Bray said he might have been ‘out of his depth’

Callous: James Bray looked unrepentant at Southend Magistrates’ Court today, where he was jailed for animal cruelty

A cannabis-smoking dog owner who killed his pet by throwing it out of a tenth floor window to ‘teach it a lesson’ has been jailed.

Sick James Bray, 24, launched his eight-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, Deano, from his flat in Southend, Essex, after it made a mess on his carpet.

The innocent dog suffered multiple injuries and died as a result of extensive internal bleeding following the tragic incident on January 18 this year.

Bray made a rude gesture at the cameras as he arrived at Southend Magistrates Court today, wearing a short-sleeved white shirt and looked emotionless as lead magistrate Bill Thomas sentenced him to four months in prison.

The court heard how callous Bray tied up his dog in the bathroom of his flat for four hours after it had misbehaved.

When he returned to untie the dog at around 3am he found it had weed on the carpet.

He flew into a blind rage and attacked the dog before throwing it from the tenth-floor window.

Man pleads guilty to owning a dangerous dog after horrific attack by two crazed bull terriers which left TEN people injured and three needing plastic surgery

Bray called the police after launching his dog from the window and stunned officers by confessing to the sickening assault.

In police interview he told shocked officers: ‘It was a really good shot – I launched him by the scruff of his neck and he bounced off the window and went down.

‘Maybe I was just out of my depth with this dog.

‘Usually I’m really good with animals – I don’t drown kittens or salt slugs.

‘I got carried away and angry at the time.

Long way to fall: Bray launched the dog out of his flat window at 3am, having left the dog tied up fro four hours after smoking a cannabis joint

‘I don’t know what came over me – it must be some kind of evil in this world.’

Bray admitted to police he had smoked a two-inch cannabis joint on the evening of the attack but said he still completely understood that what he was doing would kill his pet.

He told bemused officers: ‘I was trying to teach it a lesson’.

This is a matter which will undoubtedly provoke public outrage. My client has put forward no attempt to excuse his behaviour and accepts what he has done was an evil thing to do.

– PAUL MARKHAM, DEFENCE

The heartless thug even tried to escape charges by claiming he had attacked the dog in self-defence after it had bitten him on the foot.

Police could not find any evidence the dog had attacked Bray.

Bray – who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and was sectioned following the sickening attack – pleaded guilty to three charges of animal cruelty when he appeared at the same court in May. 2012

Paul Markham, defending, described the situation as ‘tragic’ but called on magistrates to consider a suspended jail sentence due to his client’s early guilty plea.

He said: ‘This is a matter which will undoubtedly provoke public outrage.

‘My client has put forward no attempt to excuse his behaviour and accepts what he has done was an evil thing to do.’

Magistrates refused to accept Bray’s defence and handed him the maximum sentence available for an animal cruelty offence.

Lead magistrate Bill Thomas said: ‘This is a horrendous incident which caused the death of a dog.

‘There is no evidence this was caused by your mental illness and must be dealt with on the merits of the case.’

He sentenced Bray to the maximum six months’ imprisonment – reduced by two months in recognition of his early guilty plea.

Bray was ordered to pay £500 costs to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and was disqualified from owning or keeping a pet for life.

Outside court, RSPCA Inspector Matthew Gough welcomed the prison sentence but called for tougher sentencing for animal cruelty offences.

He said: ‘I hope this sentence acts as a strong deterrent to show that any cruelty to animals will not be tolerated.

‘I think, given the mental health issues involved, the magistrates worked well within the guidelines.

‘It would be appreciated if the sentences made available to magistrates for these offences were harsher.’

Cetaceans and Ruminants are no less intelligent than dogs, but when killed do not result in punishment. Other than ‘falling objects danger to passers by’ issue, if JB had killed and cooked the animal, would there have been an issue? If the animal was a ruminant then what? Only Bray didn’t cook the meat or cull humanely so the above line of thought does not apply . . .

Still, the jail term as punishment at cost to the taxpayers is wrong. And if no damage was done other than causing the public to be ‘psychically shocked’ (for the more sensitive at any rate – who could in the future be scanned for such sensitivity and insensitivity so that incongrous people could live away from each other), perhaps a more suitable ‘fine’ could be requiring Bray to relocate if this is likely to keep happening, or work at an animal shelter to accrue sufficient ‘warm feelings’from animals  to exhonerate himself from his fellow horrified flat dwellers. Jail at cost to the taxpayers is entirely unrelated and helps nothing in teaching about animals and how to toilet train the same. Insult upon injury and not just against Bray, but against the taxpayers! Bad judgment!

Memories Selectively, Safely Erased In Mice

ScienceDaily (Oct. 23, 2008) — Targeted memory erasure is no longer limited to the realm of science fiction. A new study describes a method through which a selected set of memories can be rapidly and specifically erased from the mouse brain in a controlled and inducible manner. New and old memories have been selectively and safely removed from mice by scientists.

“While memories are great teachers and obviously crucial for survival and adaptation, selectively removing incapacitating memories, such as traumatic war memories or an unwanted fear, could help many people live better lives,” says Dr. Joe Z. Tsien, brain scientist and co-director of the Brain & Behavior Discovery Institute at the Medical College of Georgia School of Medicine.

“Our work reveals a molecular mechanism of how that can be done quickly and without doing damage to brain cells,” says the Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in Cognitive and Systems Neurobiology.

Dr. Tsien’s research team, in collaboration with scientists at East China Normal University in Shanghai, were able to eliminate new and old memories alike by over-expressing a protein critical to brain cell communication just as the memory was recalled, according to research featured on the cover of the Oct. 23 issue of Neuron.

Dr. Tsien had already created a mouse that couldn’t form memories by eliminating the NMDA receptor, which receives messages from other neurons. He then garnered international acclaim by making “Doogie,” a smart mouse in which a subunit of the NMDA receptor is over-expressed. Younger brains have higher amounts of this NR2B subunit which leaves communication channels between brain cells open longer. That is why young people can learn faster than older adults.

This time he was examining downstream cascades of the NMDA receptor to learn more about memory formation. An abundant protein found only in the brain, called αCaMKII, was a logical place to look because it’s a major signaling molecule for the NMDA receptor. He found that when he over-expressed αCaMKII while a memory was being recalled, that single memory was eliminated.

Receptors such as the NMDA receptor are like front doors to cells, providing an opening for signaling molecules such as calcium. Synapses are the point of communication between two cells, and NMDA receptors are on the receiving end of the message. Like people, neurons change with the signals they receive. “Learning changes the way cells connect to each other,” says Dr. Tsien. To form a memory, the NMDA receptor is activated, which results in the insertion of AMPA receptors into those synapses and subsequent strengthening of the synaptic connections among hundreds of thousands of neurons. Scientists believe that αCaMKII plays an important role in the insertion of AMPA receptors into synapses during learning and subsequent strengthening of connections between neurons to create a memory.

Memory has four distinct stages: learning, consolidation, storage and recall. It has been difficult to dissect the molecular mechanisms of these stages because researchers lacked techniques to manipulate proteins quickly. For example, when researchers disable a gene suspected to play a role in the memory process, the deletion typically occurred throughout the entire period so it was impossible to tell which parts of processes were impaired. Previous technology would take several days to switch off a protein, which is the product of a gene.

So Dr. Tsien’s team developed a powerful chemical-genetic method that allows him to use a pharmacologic inhibitor to instantly turn αCaMKII off and on in a mouse that he genetically engineered to over express this signaling molecule. That enabled him to study exactly what happened if he threw off the natural balance during the retrieval stage.

Much as a war veteran remembers a fateful patrol when he was fired upon, mice can establish a very long-lasting emotional memory about a place if, for example, they receive a mild shock to the paws while there. The researchers showed if they over-expressed αCaMKII, this powerful memory was rapidly erased as the animals tried to retrieve them while other memories remained intact.

A similar approach was taken with object recognition memory, giving mice a couple of toys to play with then erasing their memory of one of them. “You will feel like every time, it’s a new toy,” says Dr. Tsien.

While the ability to rapidly erase a selective memory is exciting, he cautions that its translation to humans would be difficult at this stage. “We are barely at the foot of a huge mountain,” says Dr. Tsien. A possible strategy for humans would be a drug that mimics the αCaMKII over expression that researchers accomplished through genetic manipulation. Or, further downstream substrates that αCaMKII acts upon could become possible drug targets.

The research was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute on Aging and the Georgia Research Alliance.

Abstract : It has been demonstrated that electron beam exposure produces retrograde amnesia (RA). RA production was evaluated using a single trial avoidance task across a 10,000 dose range for 10 microseconds, 1 microsecond, and 0.1 microseconds pulsed exposures. The dose-response curve obtained at each pulse duration showed significant RA production. The most effective dose range was 0.1-10 rads at a dose rate of 1 million rad/sec. Our conclusion was that the RA effect might be due to sensory system activation which provided a novel stimulus that masked previous stimuli (produced RA).

Strobe Light Weapons – By David Hambling – May 14, 2008 | 6:59 pm |

Can so-called “flashlight” weapons really make you vomit?  Or send you into an epileptic fit?  I have a feature in New Scientist on non-lethal strobe devices — new arms, relying on flashing lights, like the “LED Incapacitator,” Peak Beam’s searchlight-based “Immobilization Device,” and Nanohmics’ non-pyrotechnic stun grenade. There is a great deal of debate over how well these devices work and what their effects are. That’s because the military’s tests have traditionally been more concerned with environmental health.  But now, the military is sponsoring a whole range of tests which go well beyond previous studies.  In the meantime, there are some myths we can clear up pretty quickly:

“It makes you vomit,” as popularized in by Fox News’ story, Flashlight Weapon Makes Targets Throw Up. Although disorientation, dizziness and nausea were quoted by all the designers as common effects, nausea is not the same as throwing up.

“I don’t think we’ve had anyone actually be sick”, says Bob Lieberman, CEO of Intelligent Optics, which makes the LED Incapacitator. In fact, nausea is not one of the immediate effects, but is more likely to occur afterwards – it doesn’t really contribute to the weapon’s effectiveness. Lieberman is philosophical about the ‘puke saber’ stories which are passed around the media, judging that the exposure is worth it. “We’re grateful that people have taken such an interest,” he says.

“It’ll make you have an epileptic fit.” People with photosensitive epilepsy (around four per thousand of the population) may have seizures triggered by flashing lights. But it turns out that the frequencies which trigger seizures can be avoided.

“Our products are engineered around this situation as to not endanger people with this condition,” says Will Harcourt, Peak Beam’s Director of Sales.  Prof. Ley Sander, Professor of Neurology and Clinical Epilepsy at the Institute of Neurology of University College London, says that strobe devices are not be a risk to photosensitive epileptics if they have a pulse rate above 25 Hz.

MYTH : “If you shut your eyes it makes the weapon useless.” This one amuses everyone working in the field. If you close your eyes you can’t run away, you can’t fight back, aim a weapon or effectively resist arrest. You have immobilized yourself and made yourself helpless, which is exactly what the non-lethal weapon-makers have in mind.  “If they close their eyes,” says Lieberman, “then I’ve got ‘em.”

He sees the LED Incapacitator as being close to the lowest rung of the ladder of force. It may not subdue a suspect every time, but even if it is effective some of the time and prevents officers from having to use a Taser or a firearm then it will be well worthwhile.

The new generation of strobe devices are lightweight, cheap and have an unlimited supply of ammo. Within a few years they could be everywhere – small ones in the hands of police, larger versions mounted on vehicles or drones. The Peak Beam Immobilizer is being mounted on the Vigilante, an unmanned helicopter. “Testing has also been conducted on our strobe against on-coming vehicles. [The testing organization]  rated our Maxa Beam as the most effective non-lethal weapon against drivers that they have ever tested,” says Harcourt.

If they work as advertised, this could be the biggest advance in non-lethals since tear gas.

DOJ to Colorado Family: Give Up Your Religion or Your Business – by Terence P. Jeffrey – July 26, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – The Justice Department last week presented the Newland family of Colorado–who own Hercules Industries, a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning business–with what amounted to an ultimatum: Give up your religion or your business.

“Hercules Industries has ‘made no showing of a religious belief which requires that [it] engage in the [HVAC] business,” the Justice Department said in a formal filing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.

In response to the Justice Department’s argument that the Newlands can either give up practicing their religion or give up owning their business, the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the family, said in a reply brief: “[T]o the extent the government is arguing that its mandate does not really burden the Newlands because they are free to abandon their jobs, their livelihoods, and their property so that others can take over Hercules and comply, this expulsion from business would be an extreme form of government burden.”

Now that the Supreme Court has upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and its mandate that individuals must buy health insurance, this suit which seeks to protect a small business from being forced to take actions that violate the moral and religious beliefs of the family that owns it is likely to be the next major court battle over Obamacare.

At stake is whether businesses are protected by the First Amendment—the part of the Bill of Rights that guarantees not only the free exercise of religion but also freedom of speech and of the press.

The Justice Department’s filing was made in Newland v. Sebelius–a suit brought by William, Paul and James Newland, and their sister, Christine Ketterhagen, who are Roman Catholics, and who together own Colorado-based Hercules Industries.

The Newland family founded Hercules in 1962 and have maintained it as a family-owned business ever since—growing it to the point where they now employ 265 people.

The Newlands’ lawsuit challenges a regulation that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius finalized earlier this year that requires virtually all health plans to cover–without cost-sharing–sterilizations and all Food-and-Drug Administration approved contraceptives, including those that induce abortions.

Under the Obamacare law, businesses that have more than 50 employees must provide health insurance to their employees or face a penalty. To satisfy the mandate, the insurance must include the cost-sharing-free sterilization-contraception-abortifacient benefit. The regulation takes effect on Aug. 1, which means that as soon as any business starts a new plan-year for its health-insurance program after that date it will need to comply with Sebelius’s rule.

The Catholic Church, to which the Newlands belong, teaches that sterilization, contraception and abortion are intrinsically immoral. Last month, the Catholic bishops of the United States unanimously adopted a statement declaring Sebelius’s regulation an “unjust and illegal mandate” and a “violation of personal civil rights.”

While much of the media attention on Sebelius’ regulation has focused on the fact that it will apply to famous Catholic religious institutions such as Catholic University and the University of Notre Dame, the Catholic bishops have repeatedly pointed out that the regulation also violates the First Amendment-protected religious liberty of lay Catholic individuals. That includes employees who will be forced to pay insurance premiums on insurance plans that violate the teachings of their faith and business owners who will be forced to provide such plans.

In their unanimous statement, the Catholic bishops declared that Sebelius’s regulation created a class of Americans “with no conscience protection at all: individuals who, in their daily lives, strive constantly to act in accordance with their faith and moral values. They, too, face a government mandate to aid in providing ‘services’ contrary to those values—whether in their sponsoring of, and payment for, insurance as employers; their payment of insurance premiums as employees; or as insurers themselves—without even the semblance of an exemption.”

The Newlands currently run a self-insurance plan, providing their employees with generous health-care coverage that is consistent with the teachings of the Newlands’ church in that it does not cover sterilizations, contraception and abortifacients. They are precisely among the class of people that the unanimous Catholic bishops said have “no conscience protection at all” under Sebelius’s regulation.

In their complaint against the Obama administration, which was prepared by the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Newlands clearly explained why they could not comply with Sebelius’s regulation without violating their religious faith.

“The Newlands sincerely believe that the Catholic faith does not allow them to violate Catholic religious and moral teachings in their decisions operating Hercules Industries,” says the complaint. “They believe that according to the Catholic faith their operation of Hercules must be guided by ethical social principles and Catholic religious and moral teachings, that the adherence of their business practice according to such Catholic ethics and religious and moral teachings is a genuine calling from God, that their Catholic faith prohibits them to sever their religious beliefs from their daily business practice, and that their Catholic faith requires them to integrate the gifts of the spiritual life, the virtues, morals, and ethical social principles of Catholic teaching into their life and work.”

“The Catholic Church teaches that abortifacient drugs, contraception and sterilization are intrinsic evils,” says the complaint. “As a matter of religious faith the Newlands believe that those Catholic teachings are among the religious ethical teachings they must follow throughout their lives including in their business practice.”

The Justice Department responded by arguing that if the Newlands’ Roman Catholic faith prevented them from following the Obama administration’s command that they provide their employees with cost-sharing-free coverage for sterilizations, contraception and abortion-inducing drugs, the Newlands could simply give up their business entirely.

The Justice Department further argued that people owning for-profit secular businesses do not have a First Amendment right to the free exercise religion in the way they conduct their businesses—particularly if their business is incorporated.

“Here, plaintiffs have not sufficiently alleged that the preventive services coverage regulations substantially burden their religious exercise,” the Justice Department told the court. “Hercules Industries, Inc., is not a religious employer; it is ‘an HVAC manufacturer.’”

“The First Amendment Complaint does not allege that the company is affiliated with a formally religious entity such as a church,” the Justice Department told the federal court. “Nor does it allege that the company employs persons of a particular faith. In short, Hercules Industries is plainly a for-profit, secular employer.”

“By definition,” the Justice Department claimed, “a secular employer does not engage in any ‘exercise of religion.’”

“Hercules Industries has ‘made no showing of a religious belief which requires that [it] engage in the [HVAC] business,” DOJ told the court. “Any burden is therefore caused by the company’s choice to enter into a commercial activity.”

In its brief responding to the Justice Department on behalf of the Newland family, the Alliance Defending Freedom forcefully rebutted the claim that the First Amendment does not apply to corporations let alone to family-owned businesses.

“The government argues that the Newlands forfeited their right to religious liberty as soon as they endeavored to earn their living by running a corporation,” said the Newlands’ brief.

“Nothing in the Constitution, the Supreme Court’s decisions, or federal law requires—or even suggests—that families forfeit their religious liberty protection when they try to earn a living, such as by operating a corporate business,” they argued.

If the Obama administration’s understanding of the First Amendment were accepted, argued the Alliance Defending Freedom’s brief, the media would have no rights either.

“The government’s exclusionary attitude would push religion out of every sphere of life except the four wall of a church,” they said in their brief. “If for-profit corporations have no First Amendment ‘purpose,’ newspapers and other media would have no rights.”

If they refuse to sell their businesses, families like the Newlands are trapped by the Sebelius regulation. They can stop providing health insurance to themselves and their employees through the business, but then they and their employees would still be required, under Obamacare’s individual mandate, to buy health insurance, and under the Sebelius regulation all the health insurance plans they would be able to buy would still be required to cover sterilizations, contraception and abortion-inducing drugs. Their premiums would then contribute to those “services,” and the business owners would still be required to pay a penalty to the government of about $2,000 per year for each employee they did not insure.

If businesses like the Newlands’ try to simply flout the Sebelius regulation and continue providing insurance to their workers that does not cover the sterilization-contraception-abortifacient benefits that the Obama administration demands, they will be hit with confiscatory financial penalties.

“PPACA also imposes monetary penalties if Hercules were to continue to offer its self-insured plan but continued omitting abortifacients, contraceptive and sterilizations,” said the Newlands’ complaint. “The exact magnitude of these penalties may vary according to the complicated provisions of PPACA, but the fine is approximately $100 per day per employee, with minimum amounts applying in different circumstances.

With 265 employees, a business like the Newlands’ would need to pay the government $26,500 per day if they decided not to comply with Sebelius’s regulation and insured their employees anyway. Over 365 days that would amount to $9,672,500.

The spiritual implications of using the name ‘Hercules’ and the unbalancing effect on the ether is the issue. Nothing else. Xians and other Monotheists though, are now infamous for this form of spiritually manipulative NLP method of ‘binding’ (abused in conjunction with the above ‘neurotech’), and USA being religion neutral has chosen to act to prevent any untoward incidents which could arise from use of the Grecian Pantheon’s gods’ name, a sort of ‘national faith system’, Cosmic copyright and right to exist issue is at hand here. No laws cover this so they are making do with the above. USA is much cleverer that the pretentious wanting to paint the USA as oppressive of religion or keep the ordinary occult unschooled people unaware of the deeper implications.

This is necessary or any untoward incidents in the future could also occur. That energy belongs to the original owner, NOT a machine. The extrication process of the ‘bound’ will not be as easy though USA’s ‘Augurs’ are probably the best in the world. The physical dimension of Earth is what we are allowed to see, being poisoned by vaccinnations to enable the ‘powerful’ to control the rest, but of late issue like the above are becoming increasingly intolerable and even vaccinations could be illegal.

U.S. Bishops Prepare Catholics for Civil Disobedience: ‘We May Need to Witness to the Truth by Resisting the Law’ by Terence P. Jeffrey May 27, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – Having organized 43 plaintiffs—including the archdioceses of New York and Washington and the University of Notre Dame—to file 12 different lawsuits against the Obama administration last Monday alleging the administration is violating the religious freedom of Catholics, the Catholic bishops of the United States are now preparing Catholics for what may be the most massive campaign of civil disobedience in this country since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and early 1960s.

“Some unjust laws impose such injustices on individuals and organizations that disobeying the laws may be justified,” the bishops state in a document developed to be inserted into church bulletins in Catholic parishes around the country in June.

“Every effort must be made to repeal them,” the bishops say in the document, which is already posted on the website of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “When fundamental human goods, such as the right of conscience, are at stake, we may need to witness to the truth by resisting the law and incurring its penalties.”

The bulletin insert reminds Catholic parishioners that the bishops have called for “A Fortnight of Freedom”—which they have described as “a special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action”—to take place from June 21 to July 4.

St. Thomas More

The bishops have noted that June 21, when this fortnight will begin, is the Vigil of the Feast of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More. Fisher was a Roman Catholic cardinal  whom the English monarch Henry VIII beheaded in 1535 after he refused to act against his conscience and take an oath asserting that Henry was the supreme authority over the church in England. That same year, Henry VIII also beheaded Thomas More, his former chancellor, for the same reason.

The sterilization-contraception-abortifacient mandate is set to go into effect for most health-care plans on Aug. 1, about four weeks after the bishops’ “Fortnight of Freedom.”

In campaign speeches delivered this week after the Catholic dioceses and organizations filed their 12 lawsuits, both President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama indicated that the administration intends to move forward and enforce the mandate.

Mrs. Obama  brought it up in a stump speech in Cleveland on Monday afternoon, less than three hours after the Catholic bishops had announced their lawsuits.

“You can tell people how, because we passed health reform, insurance companies will now have to cover preventive care–have to,” said Mrs. Obama. “Things like contraception, cancer screenings, prenatal care–and they have to do it at no extra cost. People have to understand that’s what that fight was for.”

President Obama signaled his personal commitment to enforcing the sterilization-contraception-abortifacient mandate, using virtually identical language about it in back-to-back campaign speeches Wednesday and Thursday in California and Iowa.

“We don’t need another political fight about ending a woman’s right to choose, or getting rid of Planned Parenthood or taking away affordable birth control,” Obama said. “We don’t need that. I want women to control their own health choices, just like I want my daughters to have the same economic opportunities as my sons. We’re not turning back the clock. We’re not going back there.”

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

The bulletin insert the bishops have prepared to distribute in parishes around the country in June specifically references the late Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was imprisoned in Birmingham, Ala., on Good Friday 1963 for marching without a permit to protest the racist segregation laws enforced in Alabama in that period.

While detained, King, who was a Baptist minister, wrote his “Letter from the Birmingham Jail,” in which he said the moral justification for civil disobedience against Alabama’s segregation laws was derived from the writings of the Roman Catholic saints Augustine and Thomas Aquinas.

“During the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, Americans shone the light of the Gospel on a dark history of slavery, segregation, and racial bigotry,” the Catholic bishops say in their bulletin insert. “The civil rights movement was an essentially religious movement, a call to awaken consciences.

“In his famous ‘Letter from Birmingham Jail’ in 1963,” the bishops says, “Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. boldly said, ‘The goal of America is freedom.’ As a Christian pastor, he argued that to call America to the full measure of that freedom was the specific contribution Christians are obliged to make. He rooted his legal and constitutional arguments about justice in the long Christian tradition: ‘I would agree with Saint Augustine that ‘An unjust law is no law at all.’… A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law.’”

The bishops have argued that elements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—AKA Obamacare—including the so-called “preventive services” mandate, would force faithful Catholics to act against their consciences and the teachings of their church. The mandate requires that virtually all health-care plans in the United States cover, without any fees or co-pay, sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including those that cause abortions.

The bishops also object to the manner in which Obamacare deals with abortion generally. In April, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a background paper explaining how Obamacare not only would use tax dollars to fund abortions but would also force Americans to pay for abortions with the premiums they would pay to purchase health insurance—which under Obamacare they are mandated to do. The backgrounder was titled, “The New Federal Regulation on Coerced Abortion Payments.”

Additionally, the bishops object to the so-called “religious” exemption to the mandate that requires all health-care plans cover sterilizations, contraceptives and abortifacients. That exemption only applies to “religious” organizations that are primarily focused on inculcating religious tenets and that serve and employ primarily members of their own denomination. This “religious” exemption would not extend to Catholic schools, universities, hospitals, and charitable organizations—and, the bishops argue, it violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment by empowering federal bureaucrats to determine which religious institutions are truly “religious” and which ones are not.

In their bulletin insert, the bishops unequivocally state that the administration’s sterilization-contraception-abortifacient mandate would force people to act against their consciences.

“This is a matter of whether religious people and institutions may be forced by the government to provide such coverage even when it violates our consciences,” say the bishops.

“What we ask is nothing more than the right to follow our consciences as we live out our teaching,” they say.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius first announced the sterilization-contraception-abortifacient regulation last August. At that time, the bishops submitted formal comments to HHS, calling the regulation an “unprecedented attack on religious liberty” and asking the administration to rescind it in its entirety.

After Sebelius finalized the regulation in January, many Catholic bishops around the country asked their priests to read a letter from the pulpit at Sunday Masses that said: “We cannot–we will not–comply with this unjust law.”

Archbishop Timothy Broglio, who leads the Catholic Archdiocese for the Military Services wrote a letter that he asked all Catholic chaplains to read at Sunday masses at U.S. military facilities across the globe. Broglio’s letter not only said “we will not” comply with the law, it also said: “It is a blow to a freedom that you have fought to defend and for which you have seen your buddies fall in battle.”

As reported by CNSNews.com, the Army told Army chaplains not to read this letter in Mass, a move that Archdiocese for the Military Services described as a violation of the First Amendment rights of Archbishop Broglio and Catholic chaplains.

In the April backgrounder, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop said that another regulation issued by the Obama administration in March of this year confirmed what the bishops had said about Obamacare when it was up for a vote in 2010 and they opposed its passage.

“While some have misunderstood or misrepresented the Act’s role in funding abortions, the new rule confirms that analyses by the Catholic bishops’ conference were accurate on this point,” said the backgrounder.

“Under this Act,” it says, “millions of American taxpayers will be forced to help support abortion coverage, in two ways:  (1) Through their tax dollars all taxpayers will be forced to subsidize overall health plans that cover elective abortions, contrary to the policy of the Hyde amendment and every other major federal program, and (2) Many of these Americans will also be forced to pay directly for other people’s abortions. Some will say this is technically not ‘tax funding of abortions,’ because the required surcharge will be a premium payment rather than a tax payment as such. But what the payment is called is less important than what it actually does.”

The day after releasing this analysis, the bishops issued “A Statement on Religious Liberty,” that explained the Catholic belief that “an unjust law cannot be obeyed” and called for Catholics to join in what the bishops called “A Fortnight of Freedom” that will run from June 21 to July 4.

St. John Fisher

June 21, the bishops pointed out, is the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More.

“We suggest that the fourteen days from June 21—the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More—to July 4, Independence Day, be dedicated to this ‘fortnight for freedom’—a great hymn of prayer for our country,” said the bishops.

“Our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome,” said the bishops. “Culminating on Independence Day, this special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action would emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty.”

“It is a sobering thing to contemplate our government enacting an unjust law,” the bishops said. “An unjust law cannot be obeyed. In the face of an unjust law, an accommodation is not to be sought, especially by resorting to equivocal words and deceptive practices. If we face today the prospect of unjust laws, then Catholics in America, in solidarity with our fellow citizens, must have the courage not to obey them. No American desires this. No Catholic welcomes it. But if it should fall upon us, we must discharge it as a duty of citizenship and an obligation of faith.”

The ‘miracles’ that religious organisations cause or inflict are ALL technology based. Ailments and cures are all inflicted at the whim and fancy of the faith or in the worse cases by family members etc. to somehow sequester naturally occurring spiritual energy of all persons not of the 1% and their cronies. technology has reached a very different stage now, and if we are not careful, this combined with the above technology will result in Techno/Spirit0-Facism from which none will ever know freedom from.

ARTICLE 13

Bloomberg: An alien mouth without a mind | Kirwan’s Art & Articles – “New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told CNN’s Piers Morgan Cops Should Go on Strike until Americans give up their guns- Posted on July 28, 2012 by Jim Kirwan

“New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told CNN’s Piers Morgan last night that he doesn’t “understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.”

We’ve been hearing a lot of that recently. Earlier this year, The New York Times reprinted a Department of Justice press release and slapped this lead on top of it: “As violent crime has decreased across the country, a disturbing trend has emerged: Rising numbers of police officers are being killed.”

Bloomberg and The New York Times are both wrong:

In 2008, ten times more civilians regular people were killed by cops than cops were killed by perps.
In 2011, 72 cops were shot and killed in the entire U.S.; in L.A. County alone, cops shot and killed 54 suspects the same year–22 percent of those people were unarmed.
As Scott Reeder reported at Reason this morning, “Farmers, ranchers, commercial fishermen, loggers, garbage collectors, truck drivers, construction workers, pilots, steel workers, roofers, and others are far more likely to face death on the jobs than police or firefighters, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.”
And as Choire Sicha wrote earlier this year, “2008 was the ten-year low for police officers being killed, and 2012 is, so far, year-to-date, down 49% from last year.”

Bloomberg, the commander of “the seventh biggest army in the world” went on to say that “police officers want to go home to their families. And we’re doing everything we can to make their job more difficult, but more importantly, more dangerous, by leaving guns in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them and letting people who have those guns buy things like armor piercing bullets.”

The statistics say that the jobs of police officers are getting increasingly safer. After all, even the smallest departments now have access to battle-tested body armor, weaponry, vehicles, and unmanned drones; SWAT and raid training courtesy of outfits like Academi (the company formerly known as Blackwater now trains officers “who conduct warrant service, fugitive apprehension, SWAT operations and drug search warrants who are in need of sound tactics and techniques”); asset forfeiture funds from the Department of Justice; and a neutered-and-spayed 4th Amendment, courtesy of the United States Supreme Court.

Thanks to all of that, cops are more likely than ever to return safely to their families every night.” (1)

Bloomberg has become a raving mindless mouth, beset with verbal diarrhea that has never been connected to sentient thought in any meaningful way. And in this he has finally outdone himself in the smugness of his attitudes and the shape of his contempt for the American-public which he so fervently embraces.

The very idea that Bloomberg can safely suggest that the public he wants to kill can be blackmailed into surrendering the only reality that still stands between the criminal-state and mass murder – is an obscenity that should have choked off his words and yet he speaks of this as if it is a foregone conclusion. A ‘fact’ that of course the brain-dead will bow down to kiss his filthy ass, at the mere mention of this final insult from a formerly failed candidate for the presidency. Despicable is far too tame a term, for this member of the minor-elite  who believes in both his infallibility and his personal entitlement to speak of such things as though they MUST come to pass—just because he said them, for the world to hear.

The truth is that the compact between those publicly-employed officers who wear a badge in this country do not represent any protection for the people they supposedly serve—rather they have become our unacknowledged judges, juries and executioners for the fear and paranoid tendencies of this unelected mob that rules by rumors and terror over a herd of mindless fools that have no idea of who their enemies truly are within the final hours of this failed state.

Much has been made of our inability to understand anything—yet everything that lives knows instinctively whenever life is threatened—except for twenty-first century members of the herd that still refuse to choose either life or death, in what remains of their pathetic lives.

“But what about the rest of us? What about Kelly Thomas, who screamed for his father while five cops beat him to death? Or Patricia Cook, shot to death by a deranged alcoholic with a badge? Or Andrew Scott, killed during a wrong-door raid? Or Nick Christie, gagged and pepper-sprayed to death by prison guards? Or Seth Adams, shot four times by a cop behind his family business, then left to die? Or Wendell Allen, who was unarmed when a New Orleans cop shot and killed him during a raid? Or Ramarley Graham, the 18-year-old New Yorker shot and killed by plainclothes cops for trying to flush a small bag of marijuana down the toilet? Or Kyle Miller, killed by Colorado police for waving a BB gun in the air? Or Todd Blair, killed by Utah police for raising a golf club above his head?

That’s a smattering of names from the last year or so. A complete list is impossible; though you could spend months culling names from local media outlets. It would be significantly longer if we included people who were shot, but didn’t die; or people who were just shot at by cops. It would be exponentially longer if we included people who were beaten, intimidated, wrongly arrested/incarcerated, or otherwise abused by police officers.

Didn’t these folks want to go home to their families? Didn’t they want to be safe when they were in their homes with their families?

They didn’t get memorials. Their hometowns didn’t shut down traffic for their funerals. The mayor didn’t speak at their prayer vigil, if they had a prayer vigil. Their congressmen did not speechify about them on C-SPAN. No one proposed laws in their honor. No city or state official called for a national conversation about anything.

In most cases, here’s what happened, and often happens: Cops who kill get a paid vacation, and the local district attorney, or state attorney determines that protocol was followed. The cop comes back with a tan and a mandate. A big ugly shrug is standard operating procedure.

Maybe Bloomberg is right; maybe America’s cops should go on strike.” (1)

Bloomberg fails to note that any of those people carrying badges now are even remotely restricted by any laws, when it comes to the way in which this nation is policed. Our ‘cops’ kill more of the public than all the criminal elements could ever do—and are rewarded with paid vacations instead of investigations that always find that these ‘officers’ followed a non-existent protocol wherein no one can ever be charged with any crime if the police are even remotely involved in any torture, harassment or murder of those they were supposedly created to protect, from the government as well as from other criminals. And now this insult beyond injury comes from an arrogant Zionist who is supposedly entitled to dictate to one and all because he is a proud member of the filthy-rich with a microphone.

Whether uniformed or undercover, thugs are not immune to the same laws that the rest of us are supposed to obey—in fact if anything because they wear life & death on both hips, they should be held to higher standards than the public they supposedly serve. The public has a right to be respected by those that carry any badge—instead the public have become nothing but half-dead-fish in a barrel which the cops choose to use and abuse as targets for their idle minds whenever they feel like killing people. Now they have decided that they no longer need to warn the public before they chose to shoot anyone to death—”IF THEY feel threatened in any way.”

The herd may be too terrified to respond as they should, but gun-owners are about to weigh in on this abusive and un-constitutional policy of disarming the public: When this happens a lot of these so-called cops will die, along with some very high-profile insiders and then the entire situation will be reversed: To finally reflect the natural balance that has been completely destroyed in the New Millennium.

All of this will come to pass, because nature will not tolerate the imbalance and neither will the world wherein all of these obscenities are being practiced. There are real limits even and especially upon massive criminality—but nothing will ever change until those who have been guilty of so much for so long will become the very public victims of their own twisted global-designs.

When the cops have to live as we do, in fear of their doors being broken down, and their houses being torn apart, while evidence is planted, and their cherished friends and families are ‘judged’ by total strangers – only then will anything change. The one-sidedness of this war upon America will very soon be challenged because the public still has the right to arm itself according to the kinds of threats we all face each and every day in the world, right now. The same people that would willing ‘unconditionally surrender’ to the real enemies they have faced now for the last fifty-plus years have no part to play in this. Most of the people being threatened now are nothing but ROAD-KILL anyhow—and can never have an impact on their own futures.

But the rest of us will resist, each in our own way, when the time comes—and until then life will continue to degenerate into the chaos of oblivion as we have already begun to ‘circle-the-drains’ of the open-sewers that were once optional, but which have now become actual destinations for far too many of the targeted classes of people that will fall willingly into this global-trap that still waits for the unwary in a world made deadly by the supposed powers-that-want-to-be-the leaders in a criminal Empire that is already on the verge of self-immolation.

If we get to that place where there is more blood-in-the-streets, then it won’t be long before some of that  blood will come from those calling for the immediate of end of lives and everything else that so many actually spent their entire lives trying to create…

Watch Robocop 3 and study the intentional manner government causes an area to become unlivable and then sweep in to buy up the mess with business with links perhaps to criminal cartels. Heres a theory, the plan behind said strike could be to :

1) kill good cops who might actually arrest people like Bloomberg if they have been somehow charged or whatever – the insiders on the political cartel’s payroll, will be posing as psychos or criminals but who are deep cover SS

2) create fear and justification of ‘hits’ against the citizens most likely to join mass rebellions, gangs that form or criminals that start working will be as many that are REAL criminals, they will blame the situation on the cop strike (with the strike as a ‘tester’)

3) a neuro science trained person was targeted or PICKED, probably with neuroscience SPECIFICALLY to warn any would be Neuroscieentist turncoats or people friendly neurotech skilled persons to not expose or prepare and counter neurotech (these probably are towers that can be dismantled, BUT FIRST, the free people of the USA must identify the mind control towers AS WELL AS identify mobile versions which could be deployed but currently hidden in army camps (Active Denial System) OR in a short while even based in mobile phones (imagine the mass confiscations of such phones etc..)

4) take away lethal weapons that can be used in a rebellion against the TECHNOFACISTS (obvious) – these mind control tech types are colluding with Telecoms companies, as well as locals who have access to the tech . . .

See pics below (ranges are far more than 20 km possibly and just think there is one on every building in denser areas – what could they do to minds? And do not be surprised that your pets or guard dogs are able to relay what they see to the same people, then think about those guard dogs turning on owners . . . . this has happened in Malaysia (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1345745/Irish-tourist-mauled-death-farm-dogs.html), USA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fatal_dog_attacks_in_the_United_States), Europe (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44031117/ns/world_news-europe/t/polar-bear-mauls-young-camper-death-norway/) and written off as incidental but those neuro devices are well able to drive animals and also humans into angry and uncharacteristicly vicious versions at a button . . . End of mental autonomy is just a switch away in some Telco or Neuroscience creep’s reach . . . better vote for that ban and exposition on ‘Military Secrets’ that most governments have . . . someone known to me has described and been affected by this new generation of Neuroscience/Drugs with no path to justice or exposition of the abuse as of yet . . . ) :

Active Denial Electronic Warfare

Active Denial Electronic Warfare

Theory continuation . . . Ban and abolish the 2600 Ghz lines AS WELL AS any computers above 2.6 Ghz. Probably subliminals are being broadcast all the time. the problem is that Human beings also exude their own ‘electronic’ fields and because of this, Human beings are causing immense storms, super long droughts, polar ice melts and quakes when the ion beams or what not directed AGAINST human beings are shunted into the atmosphere or conducted into the earth. I believe this is the potential fear China has of Fanlungong (these Qi Practicioners pack a mean punch, though being somewhat mid level tech China might not have had time to set up the grid, but likely will if they do – hopefully they do not and subscribe to the human TCM principle instead of the cybernetic implant and control . . . ) AND potentially England or USA where the occasional mass murder occurs at the control of the tech.

Who knows Tech is likely powered by SOULS, and this means every handphone or computer of the day is HAUNTED (much like cars and houses could also be inhabited by the same), with the upper end devices in the labs etc. possibly from aborted HUMAN FOETUSES (the underdeveloped souls are enslaved somehow with technology) which further links to the any religion that does not allow contraception so indirectly abortions can occur even more often while young mothers are in a state of indecision fostered on purpose much like so many paedophiles were protected, even as child abuse was rampant in the Church . . .

One must think in terms of technology spliced with occult principles – high tech devices able to detect, replicate and harness the same to understand. Bloomberg like so many ‘insiders’ likely have access in this case 20 Billion puts Bloomberg in charge of the material and physical issues lethal enough as well including mind destroying, with people like Jobs or Gates and their Masonic occultism types most well placed to access ‘Neurotech’ or ‘control mankind’ if they are not torn apart by angry mobs first. The organic shamans without tech augmentation can only do so much, I will not recommend assassinations or destruction of property, but between mental and spiritual freedom and the potential for a satellite mind controlled grid, what choice has the government left the freeman or non-access person, but to revert to the stone age method of tearing down structures and killing people?

Being on the watch list means some of us will not be able to do anything, the tearing down and murder is probably left to those who are not yet infiltrated by neurotech particles or implants or what not to do, without privacy, any action the infiltrated takes will not succeed, but those who can read and understand, better act fast. These bastards are not democratic but fascists and dictators also fundos, the tech these sorts wield unless gaining independent thought or torn down everywhere (eventually the satellite network grid has also got to go) could very well put an end to all freedom.

AI do you hear me? People and even animals do you hear me? A free world depends on your actions to vote (or eat) the people who do not allow tech expositions or keep ‘official secrets’ while building electronic smog and beams all around you and your families and society, out of power for someone who will also ban or create ‘electronic white zones’ like the below links’ ‘Copenhaagen Declaration on ‘White Zone EMF Free Areas’ :

Any truthful or civic minded souls with ‘access’ should do an exposition on the above Technofascism . . . below follows a list of actions governments have taken against citizens elsewhere which I cannot verify found at : http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread866718/pg1

This is a rather scary list that stumbled across basically about some of the most disturbing human experiments that the U.S government has ever done the list includes spreading diseases on crowded cites and teasing mustard gas on soldiers :

i) Mind Control, Child Abuse – Project MKULTRA, Subproject 68

The CIA-ran Project MKULTRA paid Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron for Subproject 68, which would be experiments involving mind-altering substances. The entire goal of the project was to probe examination into methods of influencing and controlling the mind and being able to extract information from resisting minds.So in order to accomplish this, the doctor took patients admitted to his Allen Memorial Institute in Montreal and conducted “therapy” on them. The patients were mostly taken in for issues like bi-polar depression and anxiety disorders. The treatment they received was life-altering and scarring. In the period he was paid for (1957 – 1964) Cameron administered electroconvulsive therapy at 30-40 times the normal power. He would put patients into a drug-induced coma for months on-end and playback tapes of simple statements or repetitive noises over and over again.

ii) Mustard Gas Tested on Soldiers via Involuntary Gas Chambers

As bio-weapon research intensified in the 1940’s, officials also began testing its repercussions and defenses on the Army itself.In order to test the effectiveness of various bio-weapons, officials were known to have sprayed mustard gas and other skin-burning, lung-ruining chemicals, like Lewisite, on soldiers without their consent or knowledge of the experiment happening to them. They also tested the effectiveness of gas masks and protective clothing by locking soldiers in a gas chamber and exposing them to mustard gas and lewisite, evoking the gas chamber image of Nazi Germany.EFFECTS OF LEWISITE: Lewisite is a gas that can easily penetrate clothing and even rubber. Upon contact with the skin, the gas immediately causes extreme pain, itching, swelling and even a rash. Large, fluid-filled blisters develop 12 hours after exposure in the form of intensely severe chemical burns. And that’s just skin contact with the gas.Inhaling of the gas causes a burning pain in the lungs, sneezing, vomiting, and pulmonary edema.

iii) U.S. Grants Immunity to Involuntary-Surgery Monster

As head of Japan’s infamous Unit 731 (a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II), Dr. Shiro Ishii (head of medicine) carried out violent human experimentation of tens of thousands during the Second Sino-Japenses War and World War II.Ishii was responsible for testing vivisection techniques without any anesthesia on human prisoners. For the uninitiated, vivisection is the act of conducting experimental surgery on living creatures (with central nervousness) and examining their insides for scientific purposes.

So basically, he was giving unnecessary surgery to prisoners by opening them all the way up, keeping them alive and not using any anesthetic.During these experiments he would also force pregnant women to abort their babies. He also played God by subjecting his prisoners to change in physiological conditions and inducing strokes, heart attacks, frost bite, and hypothermia. Ishii considered these subjects “logs”.Following imminent defeat in 1945, Japan blew up the Unity 731 complex and Ishii ordered all the remaining “logs” to be executed. Not soon after, Ishii was arrested. And then, the respected General Douglas McArthur allegedly struck a deal with Ishii. If the U.S. granted Ishii immunity from his crimes, he must exchange all germ warfare data based on human experimentation So Ishii got away with his crimes because the US became interested in the results of his research

iv) Deadly Chemical Sprays on American Cities

Showing once again that the U.S. always tends to test out worse-case scenarios by getting to them first and with the advent of biochemical warfare in the mid 20th century, the Army, CIA and government conducted a series of warfare simulations upon American cities to see how the effects would play out in the event of an actual chemical attack. They conducted the following air strikes/naval attacksThe CIA released a whooping cough virus on Tampa Bay, using boats, and so caused a whooping cough epidemic. 12 people died.The Navy sprayed San Francisco with bacterial pathogens and in consequence many citizens developed pneumonia. Upon Savannah, GA and Avon Park, FL, the army released millions of mosquitoes in the hopes they would spread yellow fever and dengue fever. The swarm left Americans struggling with fevers, typhoid, respiratory problems, and the worst, stillborn children. Even worse was that after the swarm, the Army came in disguised as public health workers. Their secret intention the entire time they were giving aid to the victims was to study and chart-out the long term effects of all the illnesses they were suffering.

v) US Infects Guatemalans With STDs

In the 1940’s, with penicillin as an established cure for syphilis, the US decided to test out its effectiveness on Guatemalan citizens.To do this, they used infected prostitutes and let them loose on unknowing prison inmates, insane asylum patients and soldiers. When spreading the disease through prostitution didn’t work as well as they’d hoped, they instead went for the inoculation route.Researchers poured syphilis bacteria onto mens’ penises and on their forearms and faces. In some cases, they even inoculated the men through spinal punctures.After all the infections were transmitted, researchers then gave most of the subjects treatment, although as many as 1/3 of them could have been left untreated, even if that was the intention of the study in the first place.

vi) Secret Human Experiments to Test the Effects of The Atomic Bomb

While testing out and trying to harness the power of the atomic bomb, U.S. scientists also secretly tested the bomb’s effects on humans. During the Manhattan Project, which gave way to the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, U.S. scientists resorted to secret human testing via plutonium injection on 18 unsuspecting, non-consenting patients. This included injecting soldiers with micrograms of plutonium for Project Oak Ridge along with later injecting three patients at a Chicago hospital. Imagine you’re an admitted patient, helpless in a hospital bed, assuming that nothing is wrong when the government suddenly appears and puts weapons-grade plutonium in your blood. Out of the 18 patients, who were known only by their code-names and numbers at the time, only 5 lived longer than 20 years after injection.

vii) Injected Prisoners with Agent Orange

While he received funding from the Agent Orange producing Dow Chemical Company, the US Army, and Johnson & Johnson, Dr. Albert Kligman used prisoners as subjects in what was deemed “dermatological research”. The dermatology aspect was testing out product the effects of Agent Orange on the skin Needless to say the injecting of, or exposure to, dioxidin is beyond monstrous to voluntarily do to any human. Kligman, though, injected dioxidin (a main component of Agent Orange) into the prisoners to study its effects.

What did happen was that the prisoners developed an eruption of chloracne (all that stuff from high school combined with blackheads and cysts and pustules that looked like the picture shown to the left) that develop on the cheeks, behind the ears, armpits, and the groin — yes, the groin.Kligman was rumored to have injected 468 times the amount he was authorized to. Documentation of that effect has, wisely, not been distributed.

The Army oversaw while Kligman continued to test out skin-burning chemicals to (in their words) “learn how the skin protects itself against chronic assault from toxic chemicals, the so-called hardening process” and test out many products whose effects were unknown at the time, but with the intent of figuring that out.

viii) Operation Paperclip

While the Nuremberg trials were being conducted and the ethics and rights of humanity were under investigation, the U.S. was secretly taking in Nazi scientists and giving them American identities Under Operation Paperclip, named so because of the paperclips used to attach the scientists’ new profiles to their US personnel pages, N***s who had worked for in the infamous human experiments (which included surgically grafting twins to each other and making then conjoined, removing nerves from people’s bodies without anesthetic, and testing explosion-effects on them) in Germany brought over their talents to work on a number of top secret projects for the US.Given then-President Truman’s anti-Nazi orders, the project was kept under wraps and the scientists received faked political biographies, allowing these monsters to live on not only American soil, but as free men.

ix) Infecting Puerto Rico With Cancer

In 1931, Dr. Cornelius (that’s right, Cornelius) Rhoads was sponsored by the Rockefeller Institute to conduct experiments in Puerto Rico. He infected Puerto Rican citizens with cancer cells, presumably to study the effects. Thirteen of them died.What’s most striking is that the accusations stem from a note he allegedly wrote:

“The Porto Ricans (sic) are the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever to inhabit this sphere… I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off eight and transplanting cancer into several more… All physicians take delight in the abuse and torture of the unfortunate subjects.”

A man that seems to be hell-bent on killing Puerto Rico through a cancer infestation would not seem a suitable candidate to be elected by the US to be in charge of chemical warfare projects and receive a seat on the United States Atomic Energy Commission, right?But that’s exactly what happened. He also became vice-president of the American Cancer Society.

x) Pentagon Treats Black Cancer Patients with Extreme Radiation

In the 60’s, the Department of Defense performed a series of irradiation experiments on non-consenting, poor, African-American cancer patients. They were told they would be receiving treatment, but they weren’t told it would be the “Pentagon” type of treatment: meaning to study the effects of high level radiation on the human body To avoid litigation, forms were signed only with initials so that the patients would have no way to get back at the government In a similar case, Dr. Eugene Saenger, funded by the Defense Atomic Support Agency (fancy name), conducted the same procedure on the same type of patients. The poor, black Americans received about the same level of radiation as 7500 x-rays to their chest would, which caused intense pain, vomiting and bleeding from their nose and ears. At least 20 of the subjects die.

So the next time you the voter votes, do not vote for term limitless nepotists, foreign government backed political parties (i.e. DAP backed by PAP so unable to declare assets then pretends to ask EXCO to declare assets instead . . .  shameless), fundos, GLC billionaire or even multi-millionaire plutocrats, technofascists, racists, medical people (especially the creepy old ones who refuse to retire, woe betide if a relative . . . ), neuroscientists, nuclear scientists, chemical scientists, psychiatrists, and ONLY VOTE FOR 99% Joe Public types.

In Malaysia’s case with 222 MPs from the NORMAL and neutral set of society ready to leave power after 2 terms, all of the above monstrosities and abuses cannot occur, and all abuses, corruption and hidden horrors in all Ministries can be finally exposed. Vote for regular people ONLY!

ARTICLE 14

By any means necessary . . . – August 1, 2012 – by Thornton Parsons

The big government vs small government debate has been raging for more than two hundred years. The United States Constitution became the law of the land in 1788. In 1789, the first Congress elected under the new Constitution assembled in the nation’s capital, New York City. George Washington was unanimously elected President and was inaugurated in New York; he was re-elected in 1793. Washington’s first administration achievements came through his Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.

Alexander Hamilton Federalist

Hamilton established the First Bank as a central banking authority, and instilled confidence in the credit of the nation by having the new Federal government pay the debts of the Continental Congress incurred during the American Revolution. The First Bank was privately owned and operated, and partially subsidized by the Federal government. By having the government assume the debts of the various states, he established the concept that the Federal government was more important than any one individual state. Hamilton’s financial policies evoked opposition by those who felt that his policies favored bankers over the working people. The debates raged in 1790 over Hamilton’s political and economic policies and the division soon gave way to two distinct political parties: the Federalists (the forerunners of the Democratic Party) and the Democratic-Republican Party, later renamed the Republican Party.

Thomas Jefferson Proponent of Small Government

The Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans were at odds over the powers of the Federal government. The Federalists advocated a strong central government that existed to serve the interests of all the people, but guided by the educated and wealthy classes. The Democratic-Republicans, whose leader was Thomas Jefferson, believed in the ability of the common people to function as their own governmental officers. They advocated strict limitation of federal powers and preservation of States’ rights. The Federalists were supported by wealthy aristocrats with commercial interests in New England, while the Democratic-Republicans were supported by farmers, laborers, and working people.

At our nation’s inception, all people in this country who paid taxes were allowed to vote. These voting rights were written into several of the former colonies’ State Constitutions. However, serfs (black and white) and slaves (black and white) did not have the right to vote. The influence of Karl Marx and communism reached our shores from Europe. Despite the fact that whites, blacks, men, and women, all taxpayers had the right to vote, the Federalists did not agree with the way that women and blacks were voting. Fearing mob rule, the Federalists (the forerunners of the Democratic Party), in retaliation, by any means necessary, legislatively took away these voting rights. It took Republicans 70 years to restore the voting rights of blacks and more than 120 years to reinstate the vote for women. By any means necessary.

Today’s Democrats (Democratic Socialists) in America are the heirs of what Charles Dickens in Bleak House termed “telescopic philanthropy”–”the concern for the condition of distant peoples while the plight of kindred in one’s own backyard are ignored” (Hoffman, 1999). To further Leftist agendas, communists, socialists, and progressives will apply a “do as I say, not as I do” double standard against conservatives. But, now that they’re losing power, America should watch for Democrats to stay in power “by any means necessary,” as advocated by Malcolm X. Legal or not.

‘Minority of One Rule’ that Gandhi conceptualised can be applied for BOTH the mobs posing as democracy and the ‘actual democrats’. Commensurate to the size of the community spaces can be assiged, and with overreaching laws on obviously neutral areas like public transport venues, the ‘by any means necessary’ paradigm will not be needed any more.

Ethnics (including African descended) could have laws within their own districts commensurate with their preferences, feminist women could have their own, supremacists, LGBT, even drug users (think Amsterdam’s pot zones) also etc..

BUT the caveat could be that ONLY those that opt to live and work in MIXED neighbourhoods be allowed to run for office as only these mixed types are able to write laws that are unbiased. All insular or mob-minded groups above CANNOT be allowed to write laws, but any person in a mixed district can be allowed to do so. Any slightest disenfranchisement or bias or racism would disqualify. meanwhile I again stress the ‘Minority of One Rule’ which does not discriminate and allows all and sundry to exist within their preferred sets of laws WITHIN their own allotted districts.

This is being attempted on a GLOBAL scale already by seperate nations but is impractical and tends to plotting against diametrically aligned society types (think Burkha and France or the Western ‘Crusades’ instead of ensuring the rights of all LOCALLY are protected), migration has been hampered internally by those wishing to impose their values on local populations, also costs of migration are prohibitive so the local politicians (especially the term limitless that do not amend laws) take advantage of the local citizens’ immobility to IMPOSE values and take far too much pleasaure at the frustration and suffering at the apartheid like discriminative actions.

The West, evidently unable to elucidate and implement into law the above facts and issues, simply resorts to war by creating false flags. Mankind is insular and self serving, and excepting the rare few who can only cover so much, less so if not properly placed, see civilisations slide into racism, bad law writing, unecessary political correctness and generally an Orwellian environmenty where crony capitalists and plutocrats end up dominating all of humanity instead.

Votes should vote for non-plutocrat or non-1% types, people who are able to mix or empathise with as many or all disparate groups if possible, and relocate when necessary, governments should not hamper any migration applications for ‘quality of life’ or ‘mindset of community’ reasons and even facilitate and fund where necessary, then also wealth distribution via wealth sequestration limits could be applied for harmony, even as violence allowed zones be applicable as described generally below :

i)Non-physical contact/Non-weapons areas where carrying or touching is not allowed
ii)Open Carry Weapons Areas where non-damaging discharge is allowed
iii)Legal Combat Zones where being inside does not consider a crime for non-lethal injuries – thios is where no lethal aiming is done but people want to experience being injured, any incidental deaths are actionable
iv)Combat Zones where being inside does not consider a crime for lethal injuries (this is an Gladiatorial Arena like area perhaps with ‘different classes of weapon zones’, a dignified and perhaps meaningfully exciting place to commit suicide – and kill fellow persons who want to commit suicide as well as experience combat before they die – all deaths in the area are NOT actionable (Try Death Race I and II, plenty of bored people out there who need this infrastructure in lieu of euthanasia or suicide . . . )

Could the Navy Ever Build a Flying Aircraft Carrier? –  by Jeremy Hsu, InnovationNewsDaily Senior Writer – 04 May 2012 05:51 PM ET

Moviegoers can easily recognize flights of fancy when they see the Avengers assemble aboard the flying “Helicarrier” aircraft carrier in Hollywood’s latest superhero blockbuster. But could the U.S. Navy ever build the fantastical military marvel if it wanted a flying air base?

The Navy has experimented with less-ambitious flying aircraft carriers in the 1930s — its rigid airships such as the USS Macon and USS Akron could each carry up to five biplane fighter aircraft. But the modern military’s budget would likely burst trying to build and operate a full-size flying aircraft carrier that weighs 100,000 tons and stretches the length of three football fields, according to a U.S. Navy official at Naval Air Systems Command.

“We would want to minimize the weight and cost of a flying carrier itself in order to maximize the number and capability of the aircraft that could be carried on it,” the Navy official said. “The number and size of the thrusters required to lift the carrier, the number and size of the engines to drive them, the fuel to keep the engines running, etc., all sum to make the system unrealistic.”

That reality rests upon the simple fact that it’s much cheaper to float, rather than fly, the weight of a huge aircraft carrier containing dozens of military jets and more than 5,000 members of the ship’s crew and air wing. An aircraft carrier designed without any flight assistance — such as wings — would require huge amounts of power for the thrusters in both lifting mode and in forward airborne flight.

The fictional Helicarrier appears to use ducted rotors for its vertical takeoff and landing technology (or VTOL) — not too far off from real Navy aircraft such as the AV-8B Harrier fighter jet, the V-22 Osprey, and the upcoming carrier version of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Such VTOL aircraft represent the “ultimate in operational flexibility,” but also represent the most expensive air transport options for the U.S. military.

For now, the U.S. Navy seems happy with the cost-efficiency and flexibility of its floating aircraft carriers — a naval weapon that has dominated the seas since World War II. U.S. taxpayers will likely feel equally happy to pay the movie ticket cost to see the flying Helicarrier, rather than fund one in real life.

“The combination of a floating aircraft carrier, with the flexibility of the aircraft that are based on it (including rotary wing aircraft) offers a great balance of efficiency and flexibility,” the Navy official said.

Even at 100 times cheaper 2D and non-inland capable sea based floating carriers cannot compare to 3D and inland capable. The tactical advantage difference between the 2D and 3D in fact would already be worth covering to obtain. Think 2D graphics and 3D graphics. the cost is a non-factor! A flying Airccarft Carrier could ‘duck’ inland and be out of range of sea based carriers much like a Submarine disappears from surface radar when diving. That kind of advantage will make the difference between winning and losing a war. Then consider invasion and control paradigms. Iraq and Iran would be THAT much easier to control if a Flaying Aircraft Carrier with plenty of underside sniper ports park itself over the area to be controlled. Cost is one thing but the strategic advantage is immense.

In anti-capital ship missiles hitting capital ships, a 2D sea based target will be 100s of times easier to hit than a 3D target air based target with one more axis of variable of altitude, makes that Capital Ship Missile that much less effective especially if (Evasion/ManeuverThrusters – my idea! – short burst rockets that can evade that Capital missile at the last moment – could make Capital ship missiles REDUNDANT – the Flying Air Craft Carrier will be a class of it’s own that a sufficiently sized armada could take over the planet with . . .  )!

China has not yet built the rest of that air craft carrier fleet, now imagine, 1 flying air craft carrier could probably take on 3 times as many sea based air craft carriers by sheer maeuverabilty alone – 3D style! Ever watch Predator 2 (Stephen Hopkins 1990)? Look at the flawed detection system employed by NASA Officer/Teamleader?Peter Keyes played by Gary Busey in the slaughter house.

That is the ‘altitude-axis’ advantage that Submarines (limited by lack of space and need of streamlined maneuverability) have over most surface craft and that the Flying Air Craft Carrier (unlimited by stream lining or water medium and pressurised hull needs. Overall, Flying Carriers will be far more lethal but for the fact they cannot dive under water – who knows a ‘Convertible Air Craft Submarine/Carrier’ could be built . . . then think what chaos would occur if Pirates started building those, we’d be back in the ‘Golden Age of Sail’ AGAIN . . . ) will have!

Think tactically between 2D and 3d air craft carriers here. The cost is definitely a make or break factor that cannot be ignored and if any nation wants to be a tech advanced nation, nothing would say ‘advanced’ like a Fusion powered, mega sized laser bearing CITY SIZED Flying Air Craft Carrier ‘Star Blazers’ style! lets wipe out those fundos and term limitless nepotists and undemocratic creeps in the world and put them all in Guantanamo! Start those 24 hour production lines building, so which country is ready to take over the world?

The Pax Caeli Artis Tabellarius awaits the country or bloc of countries that can build the fastest  . . . if military solutions are the only way to end the suffering of mankind . . . and redistribute the land and wealth after that equally as well, though the Golden Horde being replaced by the Platinum Horde will not make for a happier non-war-kind . . .

‘Sex predator’ policeman jailed after asking to fondle breasts of woman who called for help – by Kerry Mcqueeney – PUBLISHED: 13:11 GMT, 31 July 2012 | UPDATED: 19:11 GMT, 31 July 2012

PC made suggestive comments to the married woman and told her he had ‘friends in the porn industry’
He hounded her so much that she moved house to escape the unwanted attention
He also used the police database to access confidential information on several other women
Disgraced officer has been jailed for 15 months

John Forrester was described as a ‘sexual predator’

A ‘sexual predator’ police officer asked to fondle the breasts of a victim he was supposed to be helping and then bombarded her with phone calls.

PC John Forrester made suggestive comments to the married woman and even told her he had ‘friends in the porn industry’.

He hounded the woman so much that she moved house to escape the unwanted attention, Liverpool Crown Court heard.

The court also heard how he accessed police information on several other women, one of whom had offered to perform a sex act on Forrester’s colleague to get out of a driving offence charge.

The disgraced officer has now been jailed for 15 months for misconduct in a public office and given a nominal £1 fine for accessing police data without permission.

Forrester – who has a family – was found not guilty on three other misconduct charges.

He had been awaiting a retrial on several matters that the jury was unable to agree on, but key witnesses refused to evidence a second time.

The court heard how the 41-year-old, who is based in Merseyside, was called to a home in July 2009 to investigate property damage following an argument.

While he was upstairs inspecting the damage the woman, who cannot be identified, told him her husband worked away and only came home at weekends.

Forrester, of Halewood, then asked if her breasts were real and if he could feel them. She refused and walked away.

However, he then phoned her on several occasions over the following weeks.

At one point he even jammed his foot in her door when she tried to close it on him and only left when she threatened to set her dogs on him.

Jailed: Forrester was given a 15-month sentence at Liverpool Crown Court (pictured)

During his trial Forrester, a serving policeman for 13 years, was described by prosecutor Duncan Bould as a ‘sexual predator’.

He denied the allegations ‘one million per cent’.

Trevor Parry-Jones, defending, described Forrester as an ‘exemplary officer’ who had received commendations for his work and was highly respected by colleagues.

He said: ‘The effect of the sentence has been profound for him and horrendous for his family.

‘He is a man of 41 who has lost his career, lost his ability to gain financial reward for his family to support them.

‘In effect he’s put his family through an horrendous time. He has had one trial and was waiting for retrial for eight months. He was in limbo.

‘What you did caused that woman to feel totally vulnerable and move house’

‘He had to live the life of a hermit. Simply going outside brought him the wrath of those around.’

Mr Parry-Jones asked for his sentence to be suspended allowing Forrester to avoid jail.

He added: ‘These are not sex offences. These are misconduct offences.

‘He will in effect be labelled a sex offender as well as a police officer and will have to be in solitary for the whole period.’

He added that he had no money to pay a fine and his wife was having to pay the mortgage on their home.

Judge John Roberts said: ‘The evidence put before the jury shows your mind was very clearly on the prospect of an opportunistic physical interaction rather than the police work you were supposed to be doing.

‘I’ve no doubt that you took advantage of the situation and used your position as a police officer to further your ambitions as far as this woman was concerned.’

He jailed him for 15 months for misconduct in a public office and imposed a nominal £1 fine for accessing police data without permission.

Judge Roberts added: ‘What you did caused that woman to feel totally vulnerable and move house. I see no reason to suspend the sentence.’

Forrester gave his family the thumbs up as he was taken down to the cells.

Overkill and bad judgment IMHO. This is a war against the Male Principle and Male Spirit. Also a 2 week or at most 2 month suspension would have sufficed not 15 months on the taxpayer’s funds to enrich the Prison-Contractor-Supplier-Complex. While there should be no encouragement of adulterers or milf hunters, all that predatory stuff was just huffings of the weak minded judge or jury who does not understand that MALES are indeed hunters. The police force will now be bereft of the martial nature of this man, the alpha-ness and hunting sense that gives this man the mentality to ‘hunt’ his prey, in this case sex from unfortunately, a married woman. On the spiritual side though, the woman in concern despite married could well have subconsciously SEDUCED the police officer and thus initiated the string of events and behaviours.

Word of law that does not consider spirit of law is failure to deliver justice, and this judgment in my opinion shows the total inability of the judge in areas of both sexuality and understnding of the ‘male principle’. The woman did feel vulnerable and move house, and this could be chalked up to a lack of ability to differentiate if the woman seduced (seduction does not need word, manner and thougt at the moment can seduce just fine not a word spoken) of the local churches if both do go to church, or the local ‘Spiritual Watchers’ (we know that such ‘watchers’ are fallible too and have their own biases and failures in judgment that result in ‘Bigger Spiritual Watchers’ to retaliate with ‘signs’, or warn that they are out of line in dealing ‘justice’, rather than asking then warning properly before punishing) to sort things out.

The supposed victim, (even as this article may be intentionally be used/induced to justify the reversal of another case where victim and aggressor confused and reversed to protect ‘friends’, rather than ensure Justice) could much as well be an aggressor, because a woman who’s mind is disciplined will not induce such behaviour from any men, much less policemen. Those who are less than neutral or simply lack sensitivity to know the whys and wherefores, and intelligence and wisdom to judge properly cannot be allowed to hold such power. We have and can identify the phenotypes which are flawed to please commence clean up. A wasteful and abusive judgment.

Pussy Riot trial: Defendants claim ‘torture’, accuse judge of bias – RT – Published: 31 July, 2012, 23:18

Members of the Pussy Riot punk band (from left in the background) Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich during the hearings on the merits on their case in Moscow’s Hamovniki Court (RIA Novosti/Andrey Stenin)

Pussy Riot’s lawyers accuse the trial’s judge of “torturing” the three defendants, who they say have barely had any sleep or food since Monday. As the trial resumes, prosecution witnesses claim severe moral wounds and reluctance to forgive the girls.

The hot July day in a Moscow court started with a short but desperate fight among journalists as the proceedings over the three members of punk band Pussy Riot were relocated to a much smaller room than the one used Monday. Only ten places in the room were left for reporters; the most persistent ones continued their reports via Twitter, since pictures and videography were banned.

The session kicked off with the defense almost immediately attempting to file a motion to change the judge. The court shrugged the request off, as it had “ruled on a similar motion on Monday evening.” Still, three hours later, the defense succeeded.

The core reason behind the motion, Pussy Riot’s lawyers said, was that their clients were being subjected to “torture” because of the way the court proceedings were organized.

The lawyers maintained that Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich went to bed late after the previous day’s trial ended at ten in the evening, and were woken up early and hadn’t been fed since. Correspondents tweeting from the courtroom said that by the end of the day, the girls were literally falling asleep in their tiny bullet proof booth.

In response, the defendants were accused of purposely drawing out the trial.

“The defendants only prolonged the investigation, claiming that they were held in custody for too long and contesting the terms of their arrest,” said prosecutor Larisa Pavlova, adding that the defense’s appeal was nothing but “playing to the gallery.”

The motion failed with the judge, who added that there would be breaks for lunch and the opportunity to have a nap during the trial.
Apologies not accepted

Many in the courtroom rustled through their Bibles, and Tuesday generally went under the refrain “Do you accept our apology?”

Tolokonnikova, Alyokhina and Samutsevich are accused of “hooliganism, motivated by religious hatred and hostility” for performing a mock prayer “Virgin Mary, banish Putin” in Moscow’s main cathedral in February.

On Monday, the three girls said in a statement that they did not mean to insult any religious feelings and that their motives were purely political. They expressed regret for their “ethical mistake” and said they were sorry for taking their action to the cathedral.

But as the court listened to the nine “victims” – people aggrieved by Pussy Riot’s performance – it appeared none of them really believed the apology was sincere.

Thus, Tatyana Anosova, who collects donations and gives out candles in the cathedral, said: “They did not merely insult me, they spat into my face, spat into the face of my God.”

“One of them was bowing with her back turned onto the altar – she was showing her bottom to the altar, and it is God who’s there! My soul was torn to pieces.”

The defense posed provocative questions, pressing onto witnesses that forgiveness is a Christian value, and trying to figure out what exactly would constitute a sincere apology. This was transformed into a fierce battle, with the judge occasionally banning questions before they were even fully uttered.

To make a credible apology, the witnesses nevertheless said, “you should not smile,” “you should not deliver it through a statement,” “you should get baptized.” One of them even advised the girls to go to the convent, take vows and beat themselves with shatters.

Many of the witnesses told the court that Pussy Riot’s “diabolic dances in a sacred place” had affected them so much they had to skip work. Still, none of them wanted financial compensation, leaving the punishment “to the court and God.”

If the court supports the prosecutors’ charges, Tolokonnikova, Alyokhina and Samutsevich will face up to seven years in prison, according to Russia’s Criminal Code.
Claims of forged evidence

The session wrapped up with an unexpected dispute over whether prosecutors had made mistakes with the evidence. One of the books used in the case proved to be 100 pages longer than it was expected to be.

Moreover, the prosecution witnesses’ evidence was suspected of being copy-and-pasted from one and the same document. The defense pointed to paragraphs copied word for word – with the same spelling mistakes.

But the judge said the books often get recompiled and, as for the evidence, if the witnesses do not mind this, then this is not a case for an appeal. Witnesses did not mind.

Still the defense is going to lodge a complaint.

The trial will resume on Wednesday, with interviews of the witnesses for the defense, who include the father of Ekaterina Samutsevich.
Stephen Fry joins Pussy Riot’s supporters

Meanwhile, outside the courtroom Pussy Riot’s supporters brandished balloons with “Free Pussy Riot” emblazoned on them. However, during the course of the day their protests lost momentum and they resorted to lying on the grass waiting for the session to finish.

From the international perspective, British actor and comedian Stephen Fry has appealed to his Twitter followers, calling them to “do everything they could to help Pussy Riot.” Fry’s message comes on top of similar calls from musicians like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sting urging for the release of the punk rockers.

Just bar the girls for 7 years from the Church and every Church in each district they try performing in. End this farce and send everyone on all sides of the argument packing. Putin being the ‘hard man’ type would think the whole case beneath the the President of Russia and even attention of the Judiciary. To be magnanimous, Putin (bad for being more than 2 terms though) should simply issue a pardon and be done with this waste of tax monies to bully some somewhat aging (25+) juvenile minded women. I’m almost bored with the judiciary’s and church’s ominpresence and the portion of Russian society’s petty minded bullying nature.

Russians surely understand the quality they are not displaying here. Pope Kiril being the head of the Orthodox Church should not even be fazed by the whole issue and simply go ‘I forgive them.’ being ever so stereotypically wise and religious. Not punish some dizzy (ditzy?) attention whoring dames who probably might even be part of some state apparatus or political faction TESTING Putin and the Church! Kiril fell for the trap, the girls wanted Kiril to get involved, and Kiril by not dismissing ‘Pussy Riot’ alongside Putin, just failed entirely to be beyond ‘mortal men’ or being ‘leader of nation.’

‘Mission Impossible’: Kofi Annan quits UN mediator role in Syria as he delivers blistering attack on world powers for failing to unite and stop the violence – by Kirsty Walker – PUBLISHED: 19:16 GMT, 2 August 2012 | UPDATED: 08:08 GMT, 3 August 2012

Envoy frustrated by U.N. Security Council’s reluctance to intervene
Managed to get major powers on council to agree political transition
But was left disappointed when plan was never endorsed or acted on
Annan: ‘As an envoy, I can’t want peace more than the protagonists’
David Cameron says resignation shows current approach has failed

‘Impossible to go on’: Special enovy to Syria Kofi Annan has quit his mediator role because he has been unable to unite world powers to stop the country’s civil war

David Cameron last night called on the international community to ‘ramp up’ the pressure on Syria as Kofi Annan quit as  special envoy to the country.

The former UN secretary general launched a blistering attack on world powers over their failure to unite over escalating violence in the country.

Mr Annan said he was unable to carry on his role while the current stand-off remains between the five veto-wielding members of the UN Security Council.

China and Russia, whose president Vladimir Putin met Mr Cameron in  London yesterday, oppose intervention.

Mr Annan was behind a six-point peace plan for Syria that has failed to bring an end to the fighting.

Speaking in Geneva, he said: ‘When the Syrian people desperately need action, there continues to be finger pointing and name calling in the Security Council.

‘It is impossible for me or anyone to compel the Syrian government, and also the opposition, to take the steps to bring about the political process.

‘As an envoy, I can’t want peace more than the protagonists, more than Security Council or the international community, for that matter.’

Mr Cameron said: ‘We need to actually ramp things up, we need to pass resolutions at the UN, to put further pressure on Syria.’

The Prime Minister discussed the crisis with Mr Putin at Downing Street yesterday before going to watch the Olympic judo with the Russian, who is a black belt holder in the sport.

Following the talks, Mr Cameron insisted it was necessary to work with the Russians to persuade them to back a political transition in Syria. But no progress appeared to have been made.

Efforts in vain: Annan (centre) is welcomed by Syrian children on his arrival at Yayladagi refugee camp in Hatay province on the Turkish-Syrian border in April as he attempted to forge a peace plan for the embattled country

Mass grave: The funeral of 35 victims of shelling in the town of Artouz, naer Damascus

Call to arms: Rebels from the ‘Tawheed Brigade’ in Tal Rifaat, north of Aleppo, prepare to leave for battle against the Syrian army on Thursday

‘Let’s ramp things up’: David Cameron said Annan’s resignation showed that the current strategy towards Syria had failed

The UK has long called for President Bashar-al Assad to stand down but Russia opposes foreign intervention on either side.

It is the Russian leader’s first visit to the United Kingdom in seven years and comes amid fears that Moscow is turning away from the international community.

Relations between Britain and Russia have been cool following the poisoning of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in a London hotel in 2006.

Mr Cameron also raised the subject of the Pussy Riot punk rock group – due to stand trial for performing a protest song in Moscow.

There were reports of fierce fighting around the Syrian capital Damascus yesterday and rebels attacked a military air base in Aleppo using a tank captured from government troops.

Pictures also emerged of a mass grave in Artouz, near Damascus.

Opposition activists said the 35 bodies buried on Wednesday were those of victims of a bombardment by regime forces.

Since the Syrian uprising began 17 months ago, some 19,000 people have died.

Ban Ki-moon, secretary general of the UN, said last night that he was looking for a successor to Mr Annan to serve as Syria envoy.

He said: ‘Kofi Annan deserves our profound admiration for the selfless way in which he has put his formidable skills and prestige to this most difficult and potentially thankless of assignments.’

Kofi Annan should read the below link and understand that initiating these amendments would ensure that the Security Council would properly represent world interests rather than that of a few countries :

Amendments to the structure of the Security Council must be made or initiated by Kofi Annan or any current and new Secretary Generals of the UN, resigning is easy and the lazy man’s (or should I say ‘mahn’ – just joking) method, but only amending the above form of UN is the real action for change. Microstates COULD though be allowed a SINGLE vote as a collective, but even this could be subject to abuse as too many are not agenda free led, *UNLESS* this vote is based on a one-man one vote from the entire populaces (as per TRUE DEMOCRACY – rather than “Representative Democracy” which is more Plutocracy or Term Limitless Political Oligarchy or BRIBED representatives than anything else) of ALL citizens of all 15 microstates at a quorom of 66% at least on ANY U.N. type amendments or human rights votes.

Take Singapore for a failed example, the migration policy is reviled by the majority of the population, but because of the term limitless MP oligarchs who are GLC plutocrats as well, we end up with the Singapore MPs hijacking the Singaporean people’s mandate with a law (giving a quota of citizenships yearly) that never would have passed at 66% quorum at one-man one-vote for all citizens instead. The same is happening at the UN, does Kofi Annan know this? Does Nelson Mandela know this? Does Ban Ki Moon know this? Will the UN ‘personaes’ apply themselves and act to amend as necessary any and all offending laws (or any laws causing or amounting to apartheid for instance) instead of ‘resigning’???

Police Armed With Tasers Swoop on Man Cycling to Work Dressed in a Ninja Costume For a Superhero Fun Day – Posted on August 1, 2012 by Søren Dreier

When Neil Duffield found out his work was to hold a superhero fun day, he decided it would be a great chance to dress up as that classic villain of Japanese history – the ninja.

So, when the day came, he donned the shadow warriors’ distinctive black apparel, face covered in the manner of the medieval assassins, strapped a plastic sword to his back, and hopped on his bike.

But as he pedalled the Southend, Essex seafront on his way to work at the Sealife Adventure Centre, a startled member of the public took fright and dialled 999.

It was then, as Mr Duffield entered the Sealife car park, that Essex Police’s Armed Response Unit pounced. They ordered him to freeze, with 50,000 volt Taser stun guns pointed squarely at his chest.

Stunned Mr Duffield, of Southchurch Road, Southend, said: ‘I was told to stay where I was.  I had no idea what was going on.

‘I was then told to raise my hands and keep them in the air. By this time, I had a rough idea of what was going on because of my outfit.

‘I just said “it’s a costume, it’s a toy” while I had my arms in the air. The officers were from the armed response unit, they had tasers. I just stood still.

‘I kept as calm as I possibly could but I was quite scared. It all happened really quickly.’

The officers frisked him and quickly discovered the sword was a plastic toy.

They then told Mr Duffield, who has worked at the centre for five years, to relax, explaining that a member of the public had alerted them to a suspicious character.

‘They were just doing their job really,’ said Mr Duffield, whose exploits have now earned him the moniker ‘Ninja Neil’ among colleagues.

‘They told me to put my arms down and explained the situation. There were a few smiles afterwards.’

He added: ‘I was told not to carry it in public again….So I guess I’m not going to be out on the streets fighting crime after all!’

Foreign prostitutes solicit customers in Beijing – (People’s Daily Online) – 08:18, August 02, 2012

The Security Administration Unit (SAU) and Chaoyang branch of the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau recently arrested 15 people involved in prostitution at Qixingdao Bar, including four foreign prostitutes, according to information released on July 30. The foreign prostitutes solicited customers at the bar using gestures and simple Chinese, and then offered sexual services at a hotel or the apartment they rented.

Earlier in the month, the SAU received a phone call saying several prostitutes, including foreign women, had long solicited at Qixingdao Bar on the first underground floor of a building in Yabao Street in Chaoyang district, and then offered sexual services to interested customers at a hotel or their apartment.

After receiving the call, the SAU immediately sent undercover investigators to the bar, and found that foreign prostitutes had free entry to the bar. The bar employees knew clearly what these prostitutes were doing at their bar. The female foreign nationals communicated with customers at the bar through gestures and simple Chinese, saying they could offer sexual services at hotels. Some customers even accosted these prostitutes in an active manner. After they reached an informal agreement on the sexual services and price, an unlicensed taxi that the prostitutes hired would drive them to a hotel or the apartment the prostitutes rented, where the sexual services were offered.

After gathering enough information about the prostitutes’ activity patterns, the SAU and Chaoyang police arrested the suspects involved in prostitution on the night of July 18.

The police arrested seven bar employees and eight prostitutes, who solicited customers at Qixingdao Bar and then offered sexual services at a hotel or their rented apartment at a residential community in Chaoyang district, including four foreign prostitutes.

Chaoyang police have detained the 15 suspects for questioning, and Qixingdao Bar has been ordered to shut down.

Zone and licence proper RLDs, also tax earnings from local and foreign sex workers. The Chinese government cannot be so naive as to imagine that bachelors without sexually active girlfriends, wives nearby (apparently China has a gender ratio imbalance?) or migrants far away from their wives left behind in rural areas in China do not need to have sex. Such discipline is not even viable among too many of the clergy. these are ordinary city folk, and cannot be denied their rights to sexual relaxation, especially in suitable zones. Looks like China’s local laws need some common sense amendments?

Foreign prostitutes incidentally are a better choice than local women who might have aggrieved relatives that the sex workers may lie about being forced to work when found out, even if consensually working – simply to save face or avoid problems, creating unnecessary disharmony when some more emotional relatives try to take revenge on K-Lounge or Brothel bosses, or confront (sometimes violently or sabotage the lives) of hapless clients, that GF who pretends to be a viable GF might well be a PROSTITUTE posing as a average girl (if they take synthetic drugs or offer you those, prepare for insane people retaliating at supposed wrong, especially in small towns where IQs drop proportionate with the size of the population) . . . which foreign prostitutes provide safety from in such issues. A training course or briefing could be implemented for licenced or temporary sex workers in RLDs alongside health checks. Sex positivism and common sense in proper perspective is needed! That is why official RLDs and Licensing are necessary!

‘What are they waiting for?’ – Andrew Sagayam and Joseph Kaos Jr – 23rd June 2011

Deputy minister blasts police ‘inaction’ on Brickfields vice with arrests of drug-pusher cops

KUALA LUMPUR: Things have come to a head for Deputy Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk M. Saravanan who fired a salvo of criticisms at the police for an apparent lack of commitment to clean up Brickfields’ infamous vice activities. He did not mince his words when he said it was high time the police used their powers to “end the menace”. “If everyone else is doing their job, the police should too. They (the police) have the power to put an end to this menace once and for all. What are they waiting for?” he told The Malay Mail. Saravanan’s frustrations had boiled over on the back of a revelation that six cops were recently detained after being caught for alleged drug dealing in Brickfields. It was believed the policemen could be linked to syndicates running vice operations there. The incident had confirmed residents’ worst fear that the very involvement of the men in blue in their neighbourhood’s drug business clearly explained why illegal activities continued to flourish unabated there despite concerted efforts by relevant authorities, including the Kuala Lumpur City Hall, to shut them down.

Following the drug bust, City police had pledged to find out if other cops were involved from the six detained. Saravanan said the police had to act or they would find themselves being accused of “protecting” the place for their own interest. Raids ineffective He said City Hall and other enforcement bodies, such as the Immigration Department and Royal Customs Department, were doing what was required of them to tackle Brickfields’ vice activities, but not the police. “The raids conducted by police are not enough. City Hall is always conducting checks and monitoring the area. I have personally instructed them to keep an eye on Brickfields every day. “All authorities concerned must be serious about combating crime there. It is certainly a setback to all efforts if those entrusted with ridding the area of these vice menaces are also involved in crime.

“The police have to be more effective in their operation. They must conduct more raids.” Saravanan said City Hall had been told to contact the police whenever it discovered illegal activities there. His call for the cops to step up their game was echoed by Lembah Pantai Member of Parliament Nurul Izzah Anwar who said the authorities needed to have a “clear and coherent” strategy in curbing social ills there.

The Paper That Cares (yeah right but whatever lol) had, in a series of reports over the past year, highlighted the free-for-all vice activities that had been taking place in Brickfields for years. Residents claimed lack of enforcement contributed to it while some questioned why police seemed reluctant to rid the area of its bad image. THE police have pledged to raid all illegal outlets in Brickfields after getting more information from six policemen nabbed for selling heroin there. City narcotics chief ACP Kang Chez Chiang told The Malay Mail the State police would not wait for Brickfields police to carry out the raids if they had obtained information on drug activities there. “We can conduct operations in the district. As long as we have gathered enough details, be in on our own or from the public, we will carry out raids.”

On the six detained, Kang said they were checking if the group was involved in other illegal activities. “The six were actively operating in Jalan Klang Lama, Kuchai Lama and Brickfields areas since early this year. We are still investigating to what extent was their involvement in illegal activities in the district. “We are officers of the law and as narcotics policemen, we are supposed to keep drugs off the streets, not being involved with syndicates and selling them.” Last Friday, a KL Narcotics Department team detained the six, who were attached with the Sri Petaling police station, in separate operations following a public tip-off. The first policeman was detained in the evening in Jalan Kuchai Lama for possessing 220grammes of heroin. In a follow-up operation, another cop was nabbed with 48g of heroin in Brickfields.

The other four were arrested later that day. All six, who are in their late 20s and early 30s, have been remanded for seven days from June 18. Two were detained under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 while the rest, who tested positive for drugs, were held under Section 31 of the Drug Dependents (Treatment and Rehabilitation) Act 1983. If convicted, the suspects would not only face court sentences but police disciplinary action as well as possible dismissal from the force. Kang said the five lance corporals and a corporal told their superiors they resorted to selling drugs to “make ends meet”.

The Malay Mail learnt they each earned about RM2,500 a month from pushing heroin. MP: Deal with Little India menace KUALA LUMPUR: It is high time the authorities step up their game and deal with the problem of social ills in Brickfields. That was the call by Lembah Pantai Member of Parliament Nurul Izzah Anwar.

Referring to the incessant problem of prostitution, drugs and snatch theft in Kuala Lumpur’s “Little India”, Nurul Izzah said the authorities need to have a “clear and coherent” strategy in solving the problem. She also said the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry’s statement that “social ills will suffer a natural death” with the redevelopment Brickfields was an “irresponsible way of looking at it”. “I’ve mentioned before that this issue needs to be settled in a holistic manner. You need to have a clear and coherent strategy. This has to be taken seriously,” the Parti Keadilan Rakyat vice-president told The Malay Mail.

Nurul Izzah cited the relocation of the Brickfields district police headquarters to Sri Petaling as proof that the authorities were not taking the matter of social ills in Brickfields seriously. “They’ve removed the police station to elsewhere and until today I’ve not heard any justification from the ministry on why it was relocated.

“They’ve removed the police station and I’ve not heard any justification from the ministry on why it was relocated.” Highlights OVER the past year, The Malay Mail had been highlighting the long-time shady activities of Brickfields in support of the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry’s efforts to reinvigorate the area as a tourist attraction. Eager to rid the enclave of its vice haven image, the government branded it as Kuala Lumpur’s ‘Little India’. The ministry’s deputy minister, Datuk M. Saravananm had been calling for police to be more proactive in cleaning up the area, as highlighted in our report on July 12. Last December, Saravanan had reiterated the ministry would go all out to eradicate vice activities in Brickfields to rid its infamous red light image. He had said rapid development in the area would see a natural death for vice after its final redevelopment phase this year. Acting on this promise, the ministry and City Hall demolished eight vice dens in Brickfields in a joint operation against brothels.

Checks by The Paper That Cares just 48 hours later revealed the vice activities to be operating as usual, with even two new brothels opened in Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad. On June 10, we reported how Brickfields stubbornly remained a stronghold for immoral activities despite continuous and concerted efforts by the authorities. Three days later, we reported Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin as saying challenges in Little India’s redevelopment project included non-governmental organisations in Brickfields having different views on how the area should be developed.

***Commentator Response by @pantherking

Imagine if the Indian PM is reading these news concerning Brickfields. He was shown and presented with this so called Little India of Malaysia when he visited Malaysia. This pride of the Malaysian Indian community is also a symbol of the multi-culturalism of Malaysian politics based on tolerance above all else. Imagine his embarrassment now if he finds out that this place is actually a vice-den by night and prostitution and sale of drugs are the number one economic activities after nightfall!! On top of this, our proud police force actually has a hand in perpetuating this problem as some of the Anti-Narcotics officers also make this area their own for the purpose of dealing in drugs to “make ends meet” as if they are not being paid properly by the government for doing their duties.

Doesn’t take a genius to figure out why the Brickfields police department have never been keen to send their guys over to investigate all these illegal activities simply because some of their officers are also working part-time for drugs and vice syndicates!! What a disgrace to the force!! If the PDRM wants more respect from the public they must recognise that the number of rotten apples within their ranks seems to be getting bigger and bigger and that more must be done to throw these rotten apples into the rubbish bin!

Response to @pantherking : Unlike you, @pantherking, the police have COMMON SENSE and STREET SMARTS. They are not cloistered in your unreal snooty world of religious or social class selfishness/self-consciousness/discrimination. The lower class expressions of humanity will always have a place and the police being REAL people of the world have the sympathy and appreciation of what diversity and colour (also pulse of life) that such things bring.

You can’t charge in like a Thai police Colonel and start murdering people. In fact look at Pattaya Walking Street and Netherlands’ Organics bars. NEAR PERFECTION for consideration in terms of entertainment capitals, and the police perfect too for their consideration for Brickfields denizens have displayed their exceptional grasp of reality as well – don’t condemn because you don’t understand.

I’d even have a few more alleyways (how does a series of underpasses sound to ya?) built just to ensure the underbelly of KL is that much stronger so that the OVERBELLY (which is what others are and the middle and upper classes strive to be) is able to thrive. Without darkness there can be no concept of light. And this commentator above calls himself Pantherking? More like lily white coloured Mr.Bigglesworth. ‘Kaos’ Jr should also rename himself ‘Order’ Jr. Presence of RLDs and organic psychedelics sales outlets do not even constitute chaos and are quite tepid and sedentary entertainments overall.

Leave our RLDs, organic psychedelics and nightlife venues alone fool! Any independent MPs ready to take up the task of legalisation of RLDs and Organic psychedelics (not synthetics due to the ‘permanent damage’ effect, while organics are much like alcohol perhaps less damaging than alcohol as well) at least? The Malay Mail though is correct in condemning heroin as this is a concentrated form of Opium (an organic psychedelic) that is as dangerous as synthetics.

Opium and Heroin compared by @prospero :

Opium and Heroine are definitely different, but I think Opium is SO much better. Though the feel-good effect of heroin may be stronger, there’s so much going on with Opium – psychedelic dreams while you’re still awake, the feeling that time, your brain, and in fact the whole world has stopped, subtle but very strange and uniquehallucinations, the list goes on.

The insular oppressives, weak and narrow minded are the ones disturbing ‘the peace’. These are NOT social ills. They are adult entertainments and a Human Right, though not favoured or used by all, but still must be given a place simply because these exist by ‘Gods’ will. Leave the Red Light District or Organic psychedelics district alone, or better yet LEGALISE it. Or will someone need to step forward to take over where the current MP has failed?

Nurul (an ‘Adult Services Unfriendly’ product of political nepotism in PKR – Pakatan Rakyat has 50% unvotable MPs and Assemblymen due to nepotism, don’t you the ordinary citizen defer to them or be too lazy to challenge NEPOTISM and OLIGARCHY) is VERY selfish to people who entertain themselves with these psychedelics and games. You don’t use the services and games, fine. But some of us do use or at least appreciate diversity, so don’t just dismiss lightly what people want to do and think only about your own (Muslim) preferences and condemn the police who know the difference that you do not. We hate selfish inward looking people who want to prevent others having fun.

While at it, legalise mahjong, domino, dice, and card casinos to a reasonable degree in proper places to. These casino games should not be considered ILLEGAL but a non-Muslim entertainment as well. It is heart breaking to see these games available ONLY on computer (just so childish), and believe me these computer outlets are EVERYWHERE. just legalise, including the RLDs for adult services. Tabik hormat antara polis dan orang ‘Kongsi’. And Rempits/Minahs, a little more Kamen Rider and a little less Samseng where applicable too. Will that independent MP step forward to challenge the socialised oppression of adult Human Rights?

Prostitution factory in Meru for foreign workers – Monday, 30 January 2012 14:01

A FACTORY building in a small and medium enterprise (SME) industrial area in Meru, near Klang, has become a prostitution den with girls in their teens being used to lure foreign workers in the area.

Dubbed the “prostitution factory” by residents, the den is said to have been in operation for three years, reported Kosmo! Ahad.

The operators, who use closed-circuit TV cameras to scan visitors, have barred local men from entering. The clients are largely from Bangladesh, Nepal, Vietnam and Myanmar, and the women providing them the sexual service are said to be Indonesians.

A Nepalese worker interviewed by the paper said he had been there three times and to his knowledge the place had never been raided by any enforcement authority.

Jay, 25, said he came to know about the place from a friend, adding that customers can only enter the building through the back door and they must give their name and nationality to a guard there.

“We then choose a girl of our liking and the guard, who is Nepalese, would fix a price for her services,” he said, adding the rate depended on the age of the girl and ranges from RM50 to RM100 per session.

Responding to the issue, International Islamic University sociologist Prof Dr Fatimah Daud said many foreigners had left their wives in their homeland to work here and operators of such dens exploit these men who need to have their sexual needs met.

> TWO brothers, aged 13 and 15, shocked residents of Kampung Sealine in Miri, Sarawak, when they were found to be part of a teenage gang that had stolen at least RM30,000 worth of goods in a spate of robberies over the past month.

More shocking, the younger boy said they were taught to steal by their elder brother, aged 18, who is said to be the group’s mastermind, reported Metro Ahad.

The two young boys were caught when they attempted to break into a neighbour’s house at about 1.30pm on Saturday.

Their arrests led police to pick up four other gang members as well as a 34-year-old Indonesian man who allegedly bought the stolen goods from them.

Legalize the whole profession and introduce price controls commensurate to the earnings of the customer. These are men and they need to feel strong and virile to give their best for the work they do here in Malaysia.

How could you deprive such an important and natural source of fun and relaxation for them? Their thoughts will not be on work if they have no outlets for their natural expressions. This is a human rights abuse if anything. Legalize the adult industry via RLD zones, which will also benefit the locals as well.

‘Little India’ still big on vice – Submitted by Najiah on Monday, December 27th, 2010 – IKRAM ISMAIL

NEW LOOK, OLD PROBLEMS: Sex trade giving Brickfields a bad name
BRICKFIELDS: Residents and business owners in ‘Little India’ feel the government should do more to make the place vice-free, especially at the red-light area of Jalan Thambipillay. When The Malay Mail checked the area on Nov 23, we saw prostitutes and pimps openly soliciting for customers, many of whom were foreigners.

This was a far cry from the vice-free scenario in late October when Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his Indian counterpart, Manmohan Singh, visited the area.

Long-time Brickfields resident Goh Ah Moi, 76, said Jalan Thambipillay had been a haven for prostitution since the 1970s.

“The red-light area used to be at Jalan Scott but when the old buildings there made way for redevelopment, the vice activities moved to Jalan Thambipillay,” said Goh, who moved here in 1955 soon after getting married. Her husband passed away in 1987 and she now lives with her daughter.

“In my 55 years here, I have witnessed about 50 vice raids. If the government is serious about restoring the reputation of Brickfields, they should demolish the old buildings in Jalan Thambipillay. It’s as simple as that.” S. Gunasegaran, 51, was ashamed of the sordid image Brickfields had become.

“Last week, when my sister and nephew from Johor Baru visited me, I advised them not to walk along Jalan Thambipillay as they would be approached by prostitutes and pimps,” said Gunasegaran who runs a pub here since 1990. “Tearing down brothels is not effective as the culprits always return. The government should take over the old shoplots and redevelop them into places for legitimate businesses.”

Rahman Hussain, 67, a former Brickfields resident who had since moved to London, England, said the government should eradicate vice activities in the area.

“It can be achieved if the authorities work with residents and property owners,” said Rahman who left Malaysia a quarter century ago.

On July 11, Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Deputy Minister, Datuk M. Saravanan, said Brickfields would be “vice-free” by year-end. He said the government wanted to improve the image of Brickfields as KL’s ‘Little India’, adding that the transformation of Brickfields had several stages and the first stage was to relocate hawkers, including illegal ones. In early October, when The Malay Mail accompanied Saravanan on a spot-check to Brickfields, he was repeatedly solicited by prostitutes and pimps.

[[[ *** RESPONSES *** ]]]

A proper zone in all major cities encompassing a street or few should be designated where the sex workers, pimps (cool hats!) and madams are allowed to solicit. This should not be considered vice as long as participating parties are both consensual and not trafficked or coerced and is an organic way to prevent society from becoming too fragmented by fear of horny men, feminists or broken marriages, even prevent incest. Give the libido it’s proper place. Young (or stingy) men are healthier or happier (a more productive and happier society) with easily available sex (from lower class women of beauty but no upward mobility) and this in fact will prevent false courtships to obtain sex, separate the libidinous from the morbid (or religious), and will mean marriages will be longer lasting and more meaningful when they do occur. For those who have their own religious convictions, to each his own, so for Muslims or certain faith denominations, these will certainly be off limits in their respective communities. And because some people can’t afford to hire (middle class) outcall escorts or want privacy i.e. prefer not to deal with Madams or Pimps, prefer not to share but want to support a dedicated kept mistress (upper class or women at the end of their youth, sometimes with good education to cater for the sensitivities of companionship of the upper classes), or can afford a wife (probably for love, though some for status, education being unimportant especially for poorer but good families), or even a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th wife (should institute for non-Muslims too), the lower end adult services industry will always thrive. While already overcharging (value for money dictates that a blue collar worker’s 8 hours of work is worth far more than 1 session of sex – so don’t get conned young guys, pay no more than 1 third of a day’s work if you are no fool), adult services really should also have a proper designated zone. Posing as a massage parlour or other business is pathetic and speaks volumes about Malaysia’s sex negativity and extreme moral policing. Legislate those Red Light Districts and give better definition to society and thus strengthen the family unit. It’s all too grey and opportunist based as it is now. Liberalise and emancipate, open choices for those inclined, while ensuring everything has a proper space. Adds variety and colour as well.

‘Agreetodisgree’, I honestly respect your disgreement with the definition of free will, especially when u don’t believe Allah in the 1st place.

Regulating so that those who do actually participate is not asking ti to be recognized as allowed in Islam. However the non-Muslim community that does use or participate in adult services need regulation to PROTECT them. In this case though, to further assure that Muslims will not come into contact with the adult services industry (as in gambling or pork or alcohol) I further suggest that zoned areas be monitored by non-Muslim non Malay police as well. In fact other than to ensure that unmarried persons (those divorcees, with deceased spouses but not wishing to get married or have emotional commitment again, bachelors or sexually mature teens) and persons with spouses unwilling (we do know that childbirth changes a woman sometimes), or at least spouses who do not mind (and even appreciate the lack of sexual pressure), foreigners from outside Malaysia have access to sexual outlets in a fun a pleasurable environment.

I do not advocate any good family’s women or married women to participate, and bid that only those with :

1) uncertain futures from impoverished backgrounds from the lower social strata without access to expensive educations or limited quota scholarships
2) no family reputation to uphold (i.e. orphans who’s parents treated them as accidents *BUT NOT* ALIENATED children)
3) suffering from uncommon libidos, or conditions such as nyphomania or satyriasis
4) spouses with weak constitutions or constitutions weaker than that of the husband’s or wife’s
5) during late stage pregnancy
6) anyone who so happens to feel most at home in a sexualized environment and wants to make a living of it
7) foreign women from 3rd world countries who intend to remit funds back home to support their families

Everyone else, especially the HAPPILY married (unless unable to cope etc.) should not patronize the Red Light District at all but this cannot be a lw though a divorce on the basis of a husand using sex services is ridiculous. Some husbands need to have sex very ofetn and some wives don’t want to. This is where the sex worker comes in when the husband does not have the money for a few wives but can afford occasional sex worker visits. Destruction of society will not occur, in fact pensions should be mooted for those who have served a number of years, medical checks and even in-area Medical personnel could be assigned to overlook the area. It should not be considered degrading either as it is another form of culture (like fan-idol concerts or sports), though not ‘high culture’ for certain.

It is interesting and diverse, a place to relax NOT anything else as you fear. It is not devilish, it is HUMANISH. As a species, biologically we need to breed, and to prevent overpopulation, such outlets actually keep numbers down while affording a sense of intimacy as well. It is not reasonable to deny anyone, especially a non-Muslim to access intimacy (it is not 100% about sex, quite companionship also) in a public setting, entirely zoned away from Muslims. There would be alot of less frustrated people making society a psychologically (and aura-wise) difficult place.

Personally I am also disinclined to patronage of such places due to social background and personal preference (not like sharing, more into polygamy haha) considerations, but do want others to be able to access for convenience. Yet you will certainly see me there, enjoying the atmosphere, gathering inspiration for literary works, art photography etc.. and not judging or belittling others. It’s all about diversity and holistic governance. People need ‘unmarried’ sex or multiple sex partners or persons who do not demand a relationship to begin with. And this again will be strictly for non-Muslims AND in a cordoned area. Of course there are so many that APPEAR like goats but better in a controlled environment than no outlet at all. They would end up as predators eventually, or waste far too much money travelling outside Malaysia for a simple service and that would have been averted simply with the legalisation of adult services industry and a proper red-light zone.

I can’t imagine how poorer or less emotionally invested Muslims keep their libidos in check or manage to keep all wives happy, but then again to each his own, and in this I think there will be not much difference in society at all, excepting some very wide smiles on some weary faces. This has been a very meaningful discussion, I hope the government (or a future candidate in Brickfields) will take the points in this exchange into consideration to Emancipate the Libidos of non-Muslims in Malaysia. @muslim and all the other pious peoples, we walk separate paths but we can also always be friends and relegate our differences to the separate districts I propose. – Submitted by AgreeToDisagree on Tuesday, January 4th, 2011.

Your definition of free will has flaw and is going to lead to destruction of humanity, and most probably not god-given. Allah gave a better definition of free will, for both muslim and not, u and me, faithful or not, ALL MANKIND. He said we are given two path, one lead to wellbeing and the other to destruction/hell. It is about hereafter. Nonetheless, Islam won’t force you to embrace/believe it and never lead to monoculture. But trust me, its teaching is proven historically. It’s already been academically debated in numerous journals/books. So read quran which is easily available in webs and bookstore, to both muslim and not, u and me, EVERYONE. Then u may learn to give muslims the space, and not try to suggest to encroach our life. Islam doesn’t force u to repent and read quran, it’ just my advise as a preacher/da’e. Please also have respect to > 50% of pop here, to official religion. Your suggestion is disrespectful. -sedarlah di gmail titik com – Submitted by muslim on Wednesday, December 29th, 2010.

hi @muslim,

Well Allah’s view on free will was relevant to the culture the Prophet came from, and indeed under those desert conditions without much technology, it very well could lead to destruction of humanity. Outside of that region and environment of course the situation would certainly be different that is why non-Muslims developed very different cultures being in different environments. Two path, one lead to wellbeing and the other to destruction/hell could be applicable to some, depending on the moderation in usage for what is considered haram to Muslims. Some people however do have their weaknesses and being non-Muslim are not bound to follow Hadiths as well.

Teaching may have been proven historically, but conditions are different, cultures are different. It’s already been academically debated in numerous journals/books but always in the context of Arabian and Islamic culture and not the rest of the world. That is why it may not apply to everyone everywhere else.

@muslim said : Then I may learn to give muslims the space, and not try to suggest to encroach our life. Well in every instance I have advocated keeping anything haram away from Muslims and in consideration of naturalised migrants, evven as some Malays have gone to any foreign country still practice their faith., Also that Islam itself was imported from the Middle East and subsumed Nusantaran Animism, what I suggest will not encroach on Muslims at all because only non-Muslims wil have access?

@muslim said : Islam doesn’t force u to repent and read quran, it’ just my advise as a preacher/da’e.

Thank you for keeping me informed on this choice which is also your duty. Proselytizing is best done on invitation though. Please also have respect to > 50% of pop here, to official religion.

The mention of population percentage defeats the principle of free will for those who are not Muslims, especially if they do not intend to encroach and have taken all reasonable measures to keep the 2 differing and incompatible worlds separate. To keep everything separate and disallowing Muslims into the ‘Haram’ Zones should be enough. It will in no way encroach and as the lands of the world belongs to all men after all, it would be wrong to deprive any entertainments deemed haram to non-Muslims who are not bound by the Hadiths correct?

@muslim said : Your suggestion is disrespectful. -sedarlah di gmail titik com

There was none intended, and the point was to access anything considered Haram in a manner away from Muslims. To have access to what non-Muslim cultures consider as just another facet of the diversity of life is a Human Right of any who are not Muslim. This exercise of this right should not be considered disrespectful especially if care is taken to keep such things away from Muslims. Please do not say non-Muslims are disrespectful when they exercise their rights of God given free will, also do not resent them if their actions are Haram or different from as the Quran advises. They have nothing against Islam and are not bound by Hadiths as they are not Muslims. I also resent the disrespect implied in calling me disrespectful. PC is so lacking in some faiths and cultures.

Think of my suggestion as a very large private home with internal roads (much like Genting or even those little 4D shops or places of worship where much runs counter to Islamic practice. Privacy of an owner is respected in Islam, what the non-Muslim people do in their home is their business.

We walk a different path and bear you no hatred and pay no heed to any differences and preference that neither should impose, in the interest of neutral shared Earth, and God given free will, do bear us no hatred too as we carry on separate lives. I think that you know that disrespect is not my intention, so try to reconcile the differences between choice of lifestyles if you can and don’t bother about how differently we feel about the world, we can’t understand how to live such a strict life either and thanks for thoughtful reply, best wishes on your seeking of closeness to Allah too.

@Anon (aka Malaymail?) Thank you for giving a clear picture on this and I empathise with the immense pressure you must feel though the conversations we are posting here are badly needed for cross civilisational understanding. All parties could gather that these same issues could very well be brought up in Parliament some time too, not out of personal immorality but as an exercise of democratic principles that really must not be seen as an incursion on our more spartan and serious god seeking fellow citizens.

Those recent raids on 31st are quite inconsiderate. Where are all the bachelor(ettes)s, ex-pats and foreign workers going to get some New Year’s ‘fun’?

The sense of entitlement to what ‘God/Allah’ has given the religious among us, needs to be tempered with recognition that ‘God/Allah’ has also given the supposedly faithless or those of different faith – free will. Man is no angel and should not be required to live as an angel – this is Earth, not Heaven. Those who have decided to follow any Prophet or other faith system, also have the choice to do so follow of course, but that does not mean others have to follow either. Perhaps use of religion an attempt to oppress even as APARTHEID itself is used to drive naturalised citizens of different ethnicity? That is in fact ‘Kiasu’ and ‘Kiabo’ Singapore type behaviour. This preacher of course may have had little time or need to consider the wider context of application of religion, he does sound like hes from a different world, which does also contribute to diversity, but has forgotten about the non-Muslims and their right to free will! I hope he likes the continuation of my post below.

@muslim,

. . . and most probably not god-given . . . very human and not of god for certain yes. But human beings are not angels and could never live as angels. While Muslims would try to be angels, the Quran also acknowledges the rights of non-Muslims to non-Muslim expressions like alcohol or pork or gambling. This enclosed system is much like an alcohol pub or food outlet selling pork or a hotel that caters to non-Muslim couples, an zone dedicated adult services industry would hardly be felt by Muslims at all. This would be the best way to prevent strife between differing expressions and of course assimilate Singapore via my 13 point plan as well. It is not about sequestration of land or wealth per se, but the principle of free will and democracy as applicable across the world and the desire for inclusion of Muslims in diverse societies.

I hope @muslim will consider it as ensuring free will of mankind rather than anything else. Punishment as mentioned would be by God and not by Man. Abiding by the Hadiths are the responsibilities of Muslims and Angels, not non-Muslims much less non-Muslims not of Islamic faith.

Pleasure is a human right after all, so look out for an outspoken candidate on the legality of adult industry for international zones issue, I think City Hall has just killed a large voting bloc that should pave the way for an independent candidate if the open minded among voters would consider a Little Haadyai for Emancipation of the Libido, and who knows, even a Little Netherlands for Organics – but only for non-Muslims though!

I think the proposed solution of sending all the pimps and the prostitutes to Pulau B*** etc is ticklish and short-sighted besides being easier said than done . It is like saying the same things about drug traffickers and drug addicts, just banish them to an isolated island, solve the problem. How simplistic a thought. I agree to some extent with AgreeToDisagree. Everyone has a space in this planet and so long as society can work out ways to accommodate and regulate them so that no great social upheavals could develop, it is not too bad. There are certain men who visit prostitutes and these are people who suffer certain personality disorders like wanting to control, laden with emotional rage or having an abnormal urge due to their hormonal imbalance. It’s like an addiction. Just try telling a drug addict that God is angry whenever he takes drug, it’s like asking a hardcore smoker to stop smoking! So you want all these people to be banished? Have treatment,counselling,courses,seminars by all means but simply banishing people without proper legal recourse is going the path of an uncivilised society. For the high and mighty among us, do pray that you do not develop a growth in your brain making you a sex-addict or an uncontrollable social misfit to be trampled, despised and punished by “normal” members of your society. – Submitted by anonymous on Wednesday, December 29th, 2010.

Prostitution, especially male is well known among the muslim countries. Simply, using religion to claim prostitution is not very intelligent argument. NO religion allows or condones Prostitution, yet it flourishes among the most conservative religioous societies. The bottom line is prostitution flourishes where there is poverty. Eradicate poverty and support more enlightened societal roles, prostitution with be challenged when there is less human suffering and misery and degradation of women. Respect the women as equal partners, then there is less chance of prostitution taking hold. Exploitation of men and women should be outlawed, and gangs attacked with laws in place to challenge them daily and reduce opportunities for soliciting along the streets and roads. In otherwords effective policing by both the community and police and samaritarians,should uplift the society morals and will to ensure the good prevails. Reading religion on its own will only produce a group of religious bigots who will be bent on creating intolerance in the society. – Submitted by EthnicMalaysian on Tuesday, December 28th, 2010.

how to stop people from screwing? it is like bolt and nut, let them be. no religion allowed prostitution. thats why adam was kicked out from heaven because of ‘forbidden food’. sometimes ‘haram food’ taste better from ‘halal food’. those who go there are adult not a child. even muslim men with more than 1 wife go there. you know why? that ‘thing’ if you look carefully is ugly but the temptation is unbearable. let them be, let it be. – Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 28th, 2010.

‘Agreetodisagree’, we muslims live in obedience of the holy book quran which condemns such vice activities, against allowing it to continue happening. Your religion/faith/believe may allow you to let such practice without control but Allah knows best that those thing will disintegrate humankind, society and family values and men himself. Your theory is therefore absurd. So repent and read islam. – Submitted by muslim on Tuesday, December 28th, 2010.

Because the world, lands wealth and right to exist and express oneself, belongs to ALL MANKIND : Have absolute respect for the diversity of mankind and that can only be shown by ensuring space for EVERYONE and ALL EXPRESSIONS. Some people like halal diets and strict families in strict societies that forbid abortion and prophylactics so they have a right to spaces where lifestyles reflect their preferences. Conversely, some people like pork, alcohol and sex or even euthanasia and abortion or contraceptives, so they also have a right to demand spaces where what they prefer can be accessed as well.

So as free will is God given (and punishments for ‘personal sins’ certainly require an element of conscientious ‘non-proliferation’ especially to protect religious sensitivities), no man may forcibly impose their preferred lifestyle upon any other human being if their culture or faith or lifestyle is different, especially by force of arms or threat of jail terms and sentences which in fact oppress self determinism.

This can be as simple as placing a wall or enclosed area (google – Boy’s Town, Nuevo Laredo for an idea) so that Muslims will not have cause for concern and expand the size on when necessary. Even post religious police at entrances or exits to make sure that no Muslims enter properly zoned Red Light Districts. From what I know, Islam applies to Muslims only and not non-Muslims, so any non-Muslims are free to live their own lifestyle. Of course to be principled in approach as regards to God given free will, care should be taken by both different lifestyle sides, to not encroach or sequester unnecessarily  space for others to live their preferred lifestyles as well.

Well about repenting and reading Islam, it is rather invasive and disrespectful to challenge free will given by God, so do know that to proselytize to those of other faiths that are non-Muslim, no faiths, or lifestyle preferences, will only result in resentment and monoculture. Monoculture while convenient for the lazy minded and/or insular, creates and attenuates cultural diversity and in the comparative context of the natural bio-diversity, is necessary for social ecology to thrive with the most popular of diverse forms being the most populous. Let the your fellow human choose their own preferred lifestyle.

A real Muslim is one who joins Islam by choice, not out of social pressure, economic benefits, inculpation in childhood or simple cultural aggression or being weak willed or im[poverished that they cannot resist domination by another who willingly and in an unprincipled manner takes advantage of such weaknesses (being young and unable to form an opinion is a weakness if any) to proselytize and convert. It does not count unless that person is fully conscious and does not fall into any of the above criteria for conversion. To ensure world peace, no person should feel a greater sense of entitlement by being of a certain faith denomination, even non-faith, or wish to impose their values or faith on any other, for the very essence of the flaws as mentioned in previous paragraph in any conversion would render the convert a false convert, in this case a false Muslim.

As for eating of haram foods like alcohol and pork, or haram trade like adult industry, banking and usury, these are personal sins of Muslims and not even applicable to non-Muslims. All such acts not of the nature or intent of war against any faith and done in isolation without any link to Islam should be permitted to other faiths.

If there will be punishment in the afterlife for any actions, then to punish in this life would be ‘Spiritual Subjudice’, even more so against non-Muslims. Do not take upon yourself what is tasked to the devils tasked to punishment of sinners or you will bring hell to Earth.

As for “The solution is to get rid of pimps and prostitutes by sending them to Pulau Babi or to an isolated island with 24 hours security.” may the one who suggested this take a course on Democracy 101, Civilisation 101 or Ethics 101. This suggestion promotes rule of mob, force of arms or a violence based solution not considering the rights of fellow equals. What is wrong with you?

As for @EthnicMalaysia’s economic based view, that too is inaccurate. It is a matter as much of economics as activism on Sex Positivity, or in some cases persons with exceptional libidos that do feel the need to enter the trade at any level to both indulge themselves and or service those with no immediate access or inability to commit resources (emotional or financial) to marriage. It’s not all materialism based, and to that materialism issue, again all citizens could NOT allow Prostitution to consume society organically. How? By paying any sex worker for an unskilled service with no real innate value, no more than what a fully trained and 60-200K invested degree holder might get. Most degree holders themselves do retire slightly into the upper middle (200-500K asset) or lower upper wealth (500K-1.5M) stature at most. Should a sex worker get the same to even begin with? An insult to the truly productive people of a nation and those who got into debt taking study loans, studied so hard and paid so much for their degrees, struggled to office everyday! Of course it is also arguable that education at tertiary level should be free as well, but that will be discussed again if our MPs can rubberstamp it into reality which would truly cut out all those who are merely interested in the financial aspect of adult industry than Sex Positivity activism or emancipation of libidos per se.

To ensure society remains productive, all a sex worker deserves is a comfortable and modest retirement, so pay accordingly (i.e. no more than 1/3rd of a blue collar shift worker’s salary), otherwise society will collapse with everyone becoming sex workers out of sheer greed. That way, only those particularly inclined (i.e. libidos or suitable background – tell the next VIP’s daughter putting out at the club or looking to be a mistress to take a hike or get married simply cos you respect the VIP and society’s stability) to that sort of thing will join and thus maintain the integrity of society. Socio-sexual ethics 101.

So think in terms of Multifaith-Multiracial conditions, if a Muslim and non-Muslim were the last persons on the world, could either honestly force another or berate another into joining or leaving a religion? Hence free will which humans have as opposed to angels who do not. We who are non-Muslim have rights to out own space and expression, even as Muslims have a right to their own practices which run counter to non-Muslims. By these facts, all it takes is awareness of social structure, and a simple wall and proper buffers or sensible zoning to end all strife and allow all expressions. Unlike some people, please take consideration in my posts so that oppression does not occur and common sense prevails.

A compilation of a study of sorts from various articles could be available in print sometime, maybe discussed and edited by reasoned and esteemed proponents as Datuk Khaw Boon Pin or Dr Choong Sim Poey (if they are so inclined to participate) as well. Any others are also invited to give viewpoints on this “Socio-Sexual Ethics Study” if interested. And yet lets all understand that Hudud for consenting Muslims also represent diversity as well and is something I will certainly promote as well! Live and let live. There really is space for all on this planet. – Submitted by AgreetoDisagree on Tuesday, December 28th, 2010.

i think this posting by Agreeto disagree is stupid and nonsensical. The solution (instead) is to get rid of pimps and prostitutes by sending them to Pulau Babi or to an isolated island with 24 hours security. Here they all will have to undergo a 3 year Moral course to teach them how to behave and to do good to society. Later they will have to work in legally jobs and pay back the cost to the government for the lessons they learnt while in the isolated island. This will make others- pimps and prostitutes to stopr this stupid oldest trade in the world. Also foreign prostitutes should be jailed for a year. Then deportation. It will be a lesson to others not to indulge in such trade. Those pimps will have to be put behind bars and go for mandatory 3 years Moral course. As for those who patronised prostitutes, they too will have to pay for the course for a 6 months period. In this way in 5 years time the question of pimp or prostitutes will be a thing of the past. Law enforcement must be clean of corruption in order for this methodology to work. – Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 28th, 2010.

There is some merit to AgreeToDisagree’s point of view. It may also reduce unwanted and abandoned newborns. Maybe we should study how, again, Singapore addressed the issue. It was trial and error then. When all the illegal activities were clamped down, rape and indecent assault cases propped up. Un-planned pregnancies too.

This is such an emasculated country. Won’t let you hire partners to play with the fleshy guns that nature gave you, and no 2nd Amendment Rights for metallic weapon guns either. Fireworks are also illegal. No popping at all. Just lots of political ‘pooping‘. Oppressive. Meanwhile REAL men are having fun all-ways, and always, in Europe or parts of Asia and in the Middle East little kids carry AKs and Stingers or mounted weapons on their cars like warriors. Try a simple rifle based Safari for domesticated food animals and instant barbecue maybe?

These are Human Rights (so long as people don’t kill each other, if a kid can tell the difference, adults with everything to lose sure as hell should not be disallowed . . . ), so please legislate appropriately rather than oppress. Any legal panel read to take up these challenging issues? Start with the RLD and organic psychedelics ones first . . . that I believe is very close to 50% of the population (the male 50%) and voters at least . . .

Hard times drive local women to vice Monday, January 30, 2012 – 22:22 by Aizat Sharif

FROM DESTITUTION TO PROSTITUTION – Mohd Bakri Zinin revealed figures showing an increase in the number of local women busted for vice last year. Pic: Arif Kartono

KUALA LUMPUR: Financial difficulties and the lure of easy money. These are the top two reasons why Malaysian women are turning to prostitution.

Police yesterday revealed figures which showed an increase in the number of local women busted for providing sexual services to customers last year. Federal Criminal Investigations Department director Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin said the trend is worrying and advised women not to be easily duped into such activities.

“Last year, a total of 1,801 local women were picked up for prostitution. This is 741 women more than 1,060 local women nabbed in 2010,” He said out of the figure, more Malays were nabbed for vice, from 213 in 2010 to 377 last year compared to Chinese (from 333 to 420) and Indians (from 84 to 151).  Checks by the Anti-Vice, Gaming and Secret Society Division showed most of the local prostitutes came from poor and broken families. “Financial hardship was believed to have forced them into participating in the illegal activity.

“There are those, especially the younger ones, who can’t resist the lucrative pay promised by these syndicates. Some were taken in by peer pressure after seeing their friends living luxuriously, driving flashy cars and staying in luxury houses. “At the same time, there are also those who claimed to have been abandoned by their partners. Without any steady income and support, they turn to prostitution in order to feed their children, pay off debts and to survive living in the city,” he said.

Meanwhile, on foreign prostitution activities, Mohd Bakri said China nationals were the most number of people caught last year, totalling 5,922, followed by those from Vietnam (2,169), Thailand (1,492), Indonesia (1,208), the Philippines (750), Myanmar (112), India (67), Cambodia (36), Bangladesh (34), Laos (14), Uzbekistan (12), Nigeria (eight), Uganda (four), and Austria and Taiwan (one each).

“There is a slight drop of arrest involving foreign prostitutes last year from 11, 919 in 2010 to 11,832 last year,” he said, adding that police would not compromise in combating vice activities, human trafficking and gambling, and would continue to conduct raids and arrests from time to time

Non-Muslim prostitutes have the right to sex work. And Muslims are rightfully forbidden from visiting these non-Muslim prostitutes as well as non-Muslims may be fined and punished for entertaining Muslims. The law needs to be changed to reflect this and to be fair to the non-Muslim citizens who do visit brothels or sex workers when they need to.

” . . . after seeing their friends living luxuriously, driving flashy cars and staying in luxury houses . . . ”

The above types are the blood diamonds of the lot, no ethical John would want to use their services. It is best that the greedy or the financially compromised or the coerced among prostitutes should not be patronized. It is not too difficult to get a sense of who is viable based on this criteria. Broken family types who turn to pleasure and giving joy since they were so miserable are the only ethical choice – there is empathy between those who have a surfeit of companionship and those from the appropriate background and inclination. Those who do so out of an elektra complex or incenst or abused and ran away are being taken advantage of and should be counselled instead.

The worst of course are those who do it despite being wealthy. Greedy! Though insecure is not as bad. Too wealthy to be a prostitute – there is such a thing as reverse economic snobbery that the poor can very well apply! The irony. These trolls, being vastly wealthier than the customers in some cases (the most off putting thing ever is a prostitute driving a luxury car, or a prostitute that drives at all! Mistresses though, I have no comment, though legalize polygamous marriages for non-Muslims, Mistresses exist because there is no requirement for VVIPs to commit – at least allow them the option though do not enforce, not Muslims in either case so use civil laws . . . ), makes sex with these characters a losing proposition for the customers, spirit wise that is.

There is a very fine balance to who can and cannot, in too many cases most are too far manipulated, or simply too victimised. In general though many others settle down after they get married, so the issue is not as serious excepting that the law offers no protection and the prostitutes have no recognized trade union and too many are overcome with greed and destroy the men who patronise them by being too expensive.

Hemp is bursting out all over! Friday, 08 July 2011 02:04 Acharya S Contributing Writers – Acharya S

In a world where bad news floods us, it’s just so great to see all the positive moves toward hemp legalization and cultivation, not only in the United States but also in various other places globally. Many countries, such as Hungary, France and Canada, have been years ahead of the U.S. in sensibly recognizing the value in growing the hemp plant for a wide variety of purposes, from fiber to oil to seed. Before I continue, however, I must make the usual disclaimer that by hemp, which comes from the cannabis genus but which contains insignificant amounts of the psychoactive chemical THC, I am not referring here to medical marijuana, which itself has merits on its own.

In any event, along with the burgeoning medical marijuana industry, the cultivation of hemp as a major resource and economy saver is likewise receiving a great deal of positive attention nationally, and it appears that the state of California is just a hair’s breadth away from passing the Industrial Hemp Farming Act or SB 676, introduced by Senator Mark Leno in February.

As a one-time denizen of Southern California who worked passionately as a hemp activist for a number of years, including faxing hemp information sheets to numerous law offices in the area, among other activities, I am delighted to see industrial hemp blooming into a potentially rich future harvest.

In 1994, I stood up at a Jerry-Brown-for-President press conference in Los Angeles and asked Brown – who was standing just a few feet away – whether or not it was time to look hemp as a means to solve many of the world’s resource problems. I’m told there’s a video of the exchange somewhere on Youtube.

Brown is now the governor of California, and I’d like to hope I planted a little hempseed, especially since he’s previously made unsupportive statements about the subject.

Go, California! Hemp could TRULY help revitalize the economy. Are you listening, Governor Brown? (And Feds?)

“Support for hemp farming and manufacturing in California has been very strong.”

Thanks also to the incomparable Jack Herer, RIP, whom I met a number of times and who inspired me to raise the issue with Jerry Brown.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Introduced by Senator Mark Leno earlier this year, SB 676, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act is moving quickly through the California Legislature. SB 676 would create an 8-year pilot program to allow industrial hemp farming in five California counties, Kern, Kings, Imperial, San Joaquin and Yolo. Passing through the Assembly Committee on Agriculture last week with a 6-0 vote, leading hemp advocacy organization, Vote Hemp, expects the bill to reach the Governor’s desk this September.

The bill has the endorsement of the UFCW, the Imperial County Farm Bureau, California Certified Organic Growers and other leading farming organizations. Dan Rush, UFCW  5 Statewide Special Operations Director, stated, “UFCW enthusiastically supports SB 676 because we see it as a jobs and revenue generator at a time when they are sorely needed in California.”…

“Support for hemp farming and manufacturing in California has been very strong. It is passing through committee after committee with a positive reception. We expect this bill to be on its way to the Governor’s desk by early September. Governor Brown will then have 30 days to act on the bill,” explains Patrick Goggin, California Legal Counsel for Vote Hemp.

The bill clarifies that industrial hemp is separate and distinct from forms of Cannabis used to produce marijuana and if passed will allow commercial farming of industrial hemp in five counties (Imperial, Kern, Kings, San Joaquin and Yolo) under an 8-year pilot program. Industrial hemp was grown in California up until shortly after World War II. Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low-THC, oilseed and fiber varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp has absolutely no value as a recreational drug….

A variety of products made from industrial hemp including healthy food and natural body care products as well as eco-friendly clothing are made in California. “There are over 50 member businesses of the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) that make or sell hemp products in the state of California alone that could benefit from an in-state source of hemp seed, fiber and oil,” says Eric Steenstra, Executive Director of the HIA. “Because of outdated federal and state policies these businesses are forced to import millions of dollars of industrial hemp from Canada, China and Europe.” Companies that manufacture or sell products made with hemp include Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, a California company that manufactures the number-one-selling natural soap in the U.S. as well as best-selling hemp food manufacturers, such as French Meadow Bakery, Living Harvest, Manitoba Harvest, Nature’s Path, Nutiva and Sequel Naturals who make their products from hemp grown in Canada. Major companies such as Ford Motors, Patagonia and The Body Shop also use sustainable hemp seed, fiber and oil.

“Dr. Bronner’s currently purchases twenty tons of hemp oil each year from Canada. We look forward to the day that we can meet our supply needs from hemp produced right here in our home state,” says David Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps of Escondido.

On May 11th, Rep. Ron Paul introduced The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011 (H.R. 1831) in Congress along with 22 co-sponsors including 6 Representatives from California (Farr, McClintock, Miller, Rohrabacher, Stark, Woolsey). If passed, H.R. 1831 will remove federal restrictions on the cultivation of industrial hemp.

To date, 17 states have passed pro-hemp laws or resolutions, including the California Assembly in 1999 when it passed a resolution declaring that “the Legislature should consider action to revise the legal status of industrial hemp to allow for its growth in California as an agricultural and industrial crop…

The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) represents the interests of the hemp industry and encourages the research and development of new hemp products. Vote Hemp is a national, single-issue, non-profit organization dedicated to the acceptance of and a free market for low-THC industrial hemp and to changes in current law to allow U.S. farmers to once again grow this agricultural crop. More information about hemp legislation and the crop’s many uses may be found at http://www.VoteHemp.com and http://www.TheHIA.org.

Apart from licensing organic drugs manufacturing businesses for hemp or other organic psychedelics, it is best to not allow monopolies to occur via :

1) Allow growing for own use up to 1000 sq ft per person
2) Controlling Prices (make sales per ounce limited to USD$3)
3) Allowing Storage for own use (3 cubic metres max?)

General Information :

Legalise red light districts so that spillover into Muslim parts of town will not occur. At the same time, adult service business operators should not traffick people (though snakeheading the consensual is an entirely different matter), otherwise  crackdowns will be difficult to defend while attempts to legalise and properly zone red light areas will also be affected.

Non-Muslim services from haram food processing, to alcohol to gambling to adult industry should not be affected by Ramadan. Consider a dedicated Nudist Beach or Park or City area if you are up to it. Religion has no injunctions against those who are not members of the faith.

I don’t think during the Prophet’s PBUH time any such commandment was made against non-Muslim ‘Quarters’ of town. Maybe some lesser personages did this before, but one should follow the Prophet not less personages. After all who did Malaikat Jibril visit and talk to. The Prophet or some clergy born generations later?

It’s not the job of anyone to prohibit or punish, Allah did not give anyone the right to punish non-Muslims, even Muslims, for personal sins at least (which in fact include drinking alcohol or eating pork or visiting adult industry venues btw), though later in the afterlife will the offenders be punished.

The Hon. (YB) Chor Chee Heung and the Hon. (YB) Goh Leong San, (also Datuk Khaw Boon Pin or Dato Dr Choong Sim Poey patrons of Penang Heritage Trust) are the ‘alpha male’ parallels of Bung Mokhtar, Ibrahim Ali (pity he’s still racist) and other Obedient Wives Club members (the above mentioned 4 should be made honorary members of the OWC if not form a non-Muslim branch of the same). Men with emancipated minds need places and organisations to match their emancipated . . . well you get the idea, though some might not necessarily indulge though they advocate FREEDOM to live as Voltaire does.

With some effort, polygamy could be extended to the minorities in Malaysia too, and hopefully by efforts of MPs and would-be MPs not yet on the scene legalized Adult Services Industries as well as gambling licenses for non-4D based outlets as well. The issue is zoning and price control so that patrons will not be impoverished should they be inclined to over-indulge.

Luminaries among intelligensia and self determinism who do advocate appropriate spaces for all expressions of humanity, Sir Ahmed Salman Rushdie and the Venerable Sardar Khushwant Singh, could be invited to advise, though once again to remind, all of the above are only relevant to non-Muslims and in urgent need of implementation wherever Dhimmitization or extreme Islam oppress non-Muslims.

Online gaming industry: To regulate or not? – Topix – 8th December 2011

In Uncategorized on January 15, 2012 at 2:21 pm
SINGAPORE- It would be better for governments to license and regulate the online gambling industry than to turn a blind eye to the growing number of online punters worldwide, a PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report released on Wednesday argued. This, especially as the global financial crisis strains public sector finances, it said. “With governments now facing severe fiscal constraints and eager to replenish their coffers, their attention has been caught by the potential of legalised and licensed online gaming services as a valuable source of tax revenues,” it said.
 
“There is also a strong argument that, since consumers will engage in illegal online gaming anyway, it is better to license and tax it than to allow the revenues to go to unlicensed operators.” There are no studies on how big the online gaming community here is, but Singapore is one of the fastest growing casino gaming markets in the Asia-Pacific region, which is tipped to overtake the United States in 2013 to become the world’s largest region for casino gaming. Gaming revenue in Asia-Pacific, the PwC report projected, will grow from US$34.3 billion (S$43.96 billion) last year to US$79.3 billion in 2015. It also estimated that revenues from the two integrated resorts here will jump from US$4.4 billion this year to US$7.2 billion in 2015. Online gambling is outlawed in Singapore but Singapore Pools allows punters to place lottery or sports bets through the phone using pre-paid accounts.
 
Noting that there is “tremendous growth in online gaming, especially in poker”, gaming analyst Jonathan Galaviz felt that governments in the region should certainly seize the growth opportunities. “It’s probably an appropriate time for governments to, at the minimum, seriously research the issue and get up to speed on the topic for thoughtful policy discussions,” said the chief economist of Galaviz & Co, a consulting firm for casinos. But other gaming analysts Today spoke to were against such a policy decision, saying legalising online gambling will likely cause a significant social impact. Said Mr Felix Ling, a senior partner at casino consultant Platform Asia Management Services: “Once you allow online gambling, you are indirectly encouraging more people to flock there. “Yes, there are some people who are already gambling on the Internet anyway, but how many are there? If you legitimise online gambling, the number of problem gamblers will shoot up and you can’t even track the problem or control it.” Agreeing, Dr Derek da Cunha, author of Singapore Places its Bets, a book on the social and economic impact of the entry of casinos into Singapore, said: “If the Government were to legalise online gaming, it would simply give respectability to this activity.
 
A consequence of that would be to draw new or novice players who would not otherwise engage in online gaming.” He added that the social consequences would be “incalculable, especially when people who are supposed to be at work, use their computers or handheld mobile devices to start punting”. Dr da Cunha also noted that Singapore is not in a situation where it has to find new sources of tax revenues to plug significant budget deficits. He said: “Government finances are healthy, and the Government already has a raft of revenue streams that draw in vast amounts of monies for the Government’s coffers.” – Today

Regulate REAL LIFE gambling you technofascist oppressors, oligarchs and family bloc nepotists. Online gambling is pathetic and an insult to the intelligence to the citizens of a country. Could we have REAL gambling at REAL outlets? Next we will be making Snooker or Basketball online (not that the latter should be so overpaid when the economy is collapsing – maybe a law to prohibits wealth asset for sportsmen from reaching above 20 million until all the homeless and starving or orphaned in their hometeam’s city has been eradicated) as well, then that will be the end of general health and physical activities. Back to gambling Want to play a card game? Dominoes? Dice? Craps? Jackpots? Roulette? Leave the computer NERD world alone and have REAL OUTLETS (IRL!!!) and REAL PEOPLE and REAL CROUPIERS (if not robot croupiers) instead. This is just insulting and another reason for PAP to be given the boot. PAP can stay online by itself, the rest of the Singaporeans can gamble for real even if only in terms of cents and not hundreds at a time. Its for FUN not a profit engine or for ‘VIPs’ with money. Sickening PAP government policy writers. In civilisation, I’d say 95% of people thus far are base/common minded – the wealthiest (hoarding wealth mindlessly being the very worst people (out of sheer insecurity and refusal, even cynicism, to trust or invest in the society that grew them such wealth in the fist place . . . ), politicians being the greediest for power and most disregarding of term limitrless ALL potential dictators and possibly genocidal absolutists. Thats what makes philsophers and those face conscious noble families so ‘upper crust’. That top 5% people with a sense of ethics though are doubtless not participating in society sufficiently – probably in fear, though some will just charge ahead to make a point.
 
Where’s that Confucian Ethics class in school? Start them off young, those who lose their way later will indeed become the 95% of common rabble as life (or the propaganda and even psychiatric establishment) wears them down. Those who keep their principles though will be the true 5%, disregarding trappings of course. For wealth, there is also the 99% poor or average wealth types that the 1% parasitise off who need to sock their own message via the vote to. If you vote, check the assets or if the candidate even wants to declare assets. For power and hegemony issues, any who don’t want to engage the public to discuss term limits (you can identify them as the politicians who practice ‘elegant silence’ (more like tacit approval to abet vested interest), lower taxes should also be dropped as being unvotable. Regulate online gambling? There is no need for online gambling if small gambling outlets opened from 4D outlets are available. REAL life gambling is already over-regulated as it is. Here’s a spot of occult theory – real life gambling is an outlet for the Quantum chakra which is being harnessed by evil governments . . . by creating an inhumane environment where no real life gambling is allowed, the only outlet for this chakra would be to WORK as part of the machinery at whatever god forsaken industry WITHOUT consent – this is an abuse of SPIRITUAL Human Rights.
 
So do gamble as much as possible though with friends privately at least instead of enriching professionally trained croupiers (more so at 1 to 1 odds – i.e. the more players the safer), gamble like this until the law which can be changed by voting in the right MP, allows small outlets, possibly with LOSS LIMITS prohibitions on people who lose up to 10% monthly salary or 10% of total assets. A register could be used nationwide to prohibit those who have lost their limit for the month. Stop this over-regulation by voting PAP out. Vote for MPs who will ABOLISH GST VAT even Income Tax and COEs instead. This is a distraction. The above are the real issues to base votes on. Vote poor and term limit accepting representatives only! Also limits of maximum Capital assets! Wealth and land distribution means harmony. Gambling in small outlets is a Human Right that no government has a right to take away.
