When ministers ignore blogs...

When ministers ignore blogs...

When ministers ignore blogs...

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 09:10 AM PDT

The problem with some ministers is that, they don't have 'hands on' in many things, taking granted that the portfolio will remain theirs in the next general election. Their major concern is to make this and that announcement, calling for press conference and safeguarding their politics.

A few even failed to keep abreast with developments around them, particularly the ones that got a lot to do with their respective ministries and agencies.

And for that reason, maybe, they don't care what is happening outside their office and on the ground.

Worse still, there are ministers who hate blogs and news portal, just because they think they are always right in making whatever decision, that a minister position is like an angel.

So, when we take blogs so lightly, we think we already know everything from A to Z about developments which are related to our area of respobsibility.

However, I am not blaming them all for being ignorance of the importance of blogs and news portal. Why? They engaged lousy media and special officers who only 'makan gaji buta' and keep giving wrong advice and input to the bosses.

And when the opposition and even members of the BN backbenchers made noise about issues affecting our portfolio, we either keep quiet for not having the right set of answers or blow out top for no reason.

How come we are not aware of the al-Qaeda-linked blog '' that operates in Malaysia and giving online training to our youths who are easily-led by 'jihad' and religious sentiments?

Why must those outside the respective ministry, especially the public, had to inform us of such a dangerous activity taking place in our backyard? And what are the people we hired doing to detect and identify the culprits behind it?

Well, may we are too busy as ministers and politics that we leave everything to our impotent new media officers, who at every meeting only feed us with the good news!

That's just an example of how we play negligence to our surrounding. We always thought that 'the situation is under control' until it burst on our face.... and any action would come too late. The damage has been so perfect. has been there for quite sometimes until it got 'erased' after The Star reported it.

It has been sending messages to potential 'members' worldwide, interacting on how to launch a 'jihad' by means of aggression and subversion, and we still call it 'not alarming' and 'no proof that Malaysia has fast becoming a training ground for such extremists!'

Yes, some blogs are lousy and nasty but even a 'stupid one' can be very helpful in formulating our policy and charting the direction of the nation.

I hate to mention it all over again but perhaps some of our YBs would like to know that blogs are more popular than newspapers these days as the content comes without strict editing.

So, to few of our minister friends, stop sleeping on the job!

Of Nazri, Nedim, Michael Chia, Hummer WNX 9776

Monster Gift! – Michael Chia Handed Huge Hummer To Son Of 'Friend' Nazri Abdul Aziz EXCLUSIVE EXPOSE!

1 Nov 2012

Member of Mohammed Nedim's protection team and the half million ringgit status symbol, Hummer H2, that has ended up in the hands of the Nazri family, but which is still registered under the name of its purchaser, Michael Chia!
This big black beast of a car is an American Hummer 2 SUV, one of the most expensive vehicles in the world, costing around half a million ringgit on the Malaysian market.
For well over a year one of these models, licence plate WNX9776, has been driven around KL by Mohamad Nedim Nazri, the son of a key Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz.
It is especially used by Mohamed Nedim's team of body-guards, who follow the youthful playboy around in the various sports cars that he also likes to drive.
Yet the car is registered not under the name of Nedim nor his father Nazri Abdul Aziz, but rather of its original purchaser Michael Chia, the Sabah-based money-runner, whom the top politician has just declared 'cleared' of all charges relating to his arrest for transporting RM40million from Hong Kong to Sabah in 2008!
Number WNX9776 plate is clearly seen in this recent photograph of the car parked outside Mohammed Nedim's residence in the prestigious Damansara Heights district of Kuala Lumpur
Proof who's owner
Sarawak Report has numerous pictures of the Hummer 2 WNX9776 parked outside Mohammed Nedim's luxury residence at the Clearwater building in Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur.  The youth, who has been in a number of violent scrapes in recent months and keeps a permanent bodyguard, occupies a Penthouse Suite in the building where he has also kept the car for months.
Yet this traffic offence (below), identified by Sarawak Report, is proof of the Hummer's actual registered owner. Not only has Chia been so kind as to offer Nazri's son a magnificent car, but he has been receiving his speeding tickets as well!
'Thanks buddy – you'll pick up the fine won't you? I get too many of them'. The Hummer WNX9776 is registered in the name of Chia Tien Foh (Michael Chia) yet it was in the possession of Mohammed Nedim by March 2011
The Hummer is one of the many cars identified among Michael Chia's assets by the MACC investigation into the Sabah money-laundering case. And yet now we see it prominently in the possession of Nazri's own son, despite Nazri's position as the Minister responsible for the MACC.
Since Nazri Aziz is the Minister who is ultimately responsible for the supposedly 'independent' MACC, it is easy to conclude why a man like Michael Chia might have been anxious to curry favour with such a Minister and his family after the investigation into his money-laundering began in 2008.
Parked outside Clearwater – Chia's Hummer is in full time possession of Nazri's KL based son
However, we ask, what acceptable explanation can there be as to why the Minister (or his son) should accept such a gift from a marked man, who was being investigated by his own government department or encourage any form of friendship with someone under such a serious and high profile corruption investigation?
Penthouse luxury at Clearwater – This is Mohd Nedim's pleasant accommodation, but the query is where does all this money come from for the family of the man in political charge of the MACC?
Failure to declare a personal interest
Trouble – Mohammed Nedim has been caught up in brutal fights, including one death.
Our extraordinary revelation follows an admission two days ago by Nazri that he was indeed a 'friend' of Chia, after rumours first surfaced that his son had been given cars by the money-laundering suspect.
The development is likely to have an explosive impact on an already charged political situation, following Nazri's own announcements on the sudden decision to drop a long running investigation into Michael Chia's involvement in laundering timber kickbacks, which have beenclearly linked to Sabah Chief Minister, Musa Aman.
Observers are surely going to ask why Nazri did not declare his interest at the time he made his first controversial announcement on October 10th declaring after four years of looking into the case that Chia was after all innocent of any wrong-doing, because the RM40million he was smuggling was intended for UMNO and not Musa Aman personally!
The Minister has attempted to brush off the matter by admitting that Chia is a friend, but not that he knew the man was giving his son cars.  So how DOES Nazri account for his feckless son's multi-million dollar car collection?  By what means did he imagine rowdy Mohd Nedim, best known for beating people up who annoy him, had acquired these cars?
Ever changing stories and ever weakening answers
Nazri has been Chia's Chief protector with a series of announcements over the past month declaring him to be innocent and that the MACC investigation is 'closed'. His latest version of the story is that Chia was never arrested in the first place.
This is an affair that has left BN/UMNO politicians exposed to the accusation that they cannot keep to the same story for more than a few days at a time.
The public has been treated to a series of unconvincing and inconsistent responses every time new evidence presents itself in the Sabah case and doubtless stories will change again now Nazri's own close friendship and involvement with the main player, Michael Chia, has been exposed.
Originally, after Chia's arrest and an investigation by Hong Kong's ICAC and the MACC in 2008, BN tried outright denial.
Attorney General Gani Patail (a relative of Musa)  refused inter-country cooperation to the ICAC, thereby causing the Hong Kong investigation to lapse when the 3 year time limit ran out in 2011. And he also refused to prosecute the MACC's 40 recommended charges.
At the same time Chia denied he had been arrested, or that there had been RM40million involved or that he had any business or political dealings with Musa.  Musa likewise denied any association with Chia.
Mohd Nedim's team of driver and bodyguards around the Hummer as they arrive back at the Clearwater apartment
However, this year our series of exposes based on a large body of evidence available to the MACC, have showed that an international web of Chia-controlled accounts were channelling tens of millions of ringgit into Musa Aman's own personal Zurich bank account, run by the Swiss bank UBS.
We also demonstrated that the same Chia-controlled accounts were being used to provide regular payments to Musa Aman's sons, while they were studying in Australia.  This was corroborated by the Swiss bank UBS in a separate court case currently in the High Court of Singapore.
These revelations were followed by an announcement by the Swiss Federal Attorney General that it has launched a criminal money-laundering investigation into UBS over its part in the affair.
It appears these developments put so much pressure on BN that the stories started to change. In June, the Prime Minister Najib Razak acknowledged that the MACC had indeed handed a report on the matter to the Attorney General and that Musa was implicated.  For weeks Musa was stranded.
However, suddenly in the middle of last month Nazri Aziz led a fight back with a string of extraordinary announcements. On the one hand BN admitted that Chia had been caught transferring RM40million to Musa, but on the other they declared that Chia and his accomplices had nevertheless been 'cleared'.
Macho machine – the ultimate boy toy that won Nazri's valuable support for Michael Chia?
In a parliamentary answer on 10th October Nazri said that both parties had been exonerated on the basis that the money was not for 'personal use', but for UMNO use instead!
Onlookers were left amazed that a political donation based on timber kickbacks should be considered any less corrupt than a personal one.  They were also left wondering where this left all the four years of different denials by Musa and Chia.  And if there was nothing wrong with this 'political donation', why had it been denied for so long?
Chia – party boy turned multi-millionaire. How did this illiterate young man do it?
But Nazri and his colleagues did not stop here. Soon they developed the story further, claiming that the ICAC investigation had also 'cleared Musa and Chia', when in fact the Hong Kong investigation just lapsed owing to non-cooperation from the Malaysian Attorney General.
Since the ICAC has refused to comment, Nazri and his colleagues have not been able to get any evidence to confirm their claim that Chia was found blameless in Hong Kong.
Finally, having admitted the RM40million was being secreted to Sabah, that Chia was 'detained' and that the money was frozen and investigated, Nazri's latest twist has been to claim that Chia was never arrested after all!
So why the 4 years of investigations?
Yet more explanations are now needed
It would appear that a half million ringgit Hummer 2 can buy an awful lot of support in high places.  The roadster has been considered the ultimate 'macho machine' ever since Hollywood idols like Arnold Schwarzeneggar started driving the former military vehicles back in the 1990s.
Clearly, young Mohd Nedim was desperately tempted and also aware of the value of this status symbol.
However, accepting such a gift opens his father to unstoppable questions about what other incentives might have been employed to encourage so many energetic public defences of Chia by Nazri over the past few days?  After all there have also been reports of millions of ringgit changing hands and Nazri has certainly been working exceedingly hard on Chia's behalf!
Mr Nazri certainly has some explaining to do and we should prepare ourselves for many more stories and denials.
Mohammed Nedim's personnel leave the Hummer and head for the Clearwater building. Chia's car is now at their disposal.

Awal-awal Kroni Sudah Besar Kepala, Syarikat Konsesi AES Menyamar Pegawai JPJ

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 11:09 AM PDT

Kempen Anti Saman Ekor (KASE) menuntut penjelasan daripada Menteri Pengangkutan, Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha dan Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) berhubung kejadian penyamaran sebagai pihak berkuasa oleh syarikat konsesi Sistem Kamera Automatik (AES).

Penasihat Undang-undang KASE, Zulhazmi Shariff berkata, berdasarkan sumber yang diperolehi, Syarikat Beta Tegap Sdn Bhd dan ATES Sdn Bhd mewarnakan kenderaan mereka seakan-akan pacuan empat roda Toyota Fortuner milik JPJ.

"Apa yang berlaku sekarang, maklumat yang kami terima, ATES dan Beta Tegap mewarnakan kenderaan milik syarikat sebagai warna seakan-akan warna JPJ.

"Letak logo JPJ, nama 'Automated Enforcement System' sedangkan kenderaan tersebut bukan kenderaan JPJ. Ini apa cerita?" katanya di lobi Parlimen.

Tegasnya, penyamaran sebagai pihak berkuasa ini merupakan satu kesalahan dan boleh dikenakan tindakan undang-undang.

Dalam sidang media sama, Pengerusi KASE, Datuk Mahfuz Omar menggesa semua penerima saman AES agar tidak membuat bayaran kompaun sebaliknya hadir ke mahkamah untuk menyelesaikan perkara berkenaan.

Ini kerana KASE akan menyediakan peguam kepada mereka selain penggunaan peruntukkan undang-undang yang salah seperti dinyatakan dalam surat saman.

Tegasnya, kerajaan sepatutnya membatalkan semua saman yang mula dikeluarkan pada 13 Oktober lalu dan penangguhkan perlaksanaan AES seperti yang didesak sebelum ini.

"Kalau kerajaan masih tidak menarik balik saman ini, KASE menyeru kepada semua penerima saman ini agar tidak membayar kompaun.

"Sebaliknya ikut arahan ini (dalam surat saman) ke mahkamah. Kami bersedia menyediakan beberapa peguam bagi membantu mereka yang bersedia ke mahkamah.

"Peguam ini hanya untuk saman AES dan bukannya saman trafik," katanya.

Surat saman AES yang dikeluarkan menyatakan kesalahan melanggar had kelajuan berada di bawah Seksyen 79 (2).

Seksyen berkenaan sebenarnya bukan berkaitan perlanggaran had kelajuan sebaliknya merujuk pada perlanggaran kepada mengabaikan terhadap arahan dan isyarat lalu lintas.

Dari segi hukuman pula, tidak ada kompaun minimum RM300 sebaliknya tidak melebihi RM 500.

"Undang-undang disini (dalam surat saman) yang digunakan pun pelik. Dia (surat saman) kata miinta kita hadir ke mahkamah sendiri atau diwakil peguam.

"Mana boleh pertuduhan yang ingin disebut di mahkamah diwakili peguam," jelasnya.

Ujar beliau lagi, kesalahan AES ini tidak akan melibatkan kesan disenarai hitam sebaliknya penerima boleh membuat saman balas seandainya mereka dikenakan tindakan sedemikian.

Beliau menambah, langkah penyelesaian di mahkamah ini dapat mengurangkan peluang kepada syarikat konsesi memperoleh keuntungan RM16 dari setiap saman yang dikeluarkan. -selangorku

Revisiting The October Surprise

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 07:34 AM PDT

We are certainly living in very interesting times. For this post, I will introduce the October Surprise and then other interesting links that showcase how recent events illustrate the relevance/significance of this theory in real time.

In American political jargon, an October surprise is a news event with the potential to influence the outcome of an election, particularly one for the U.S. presidency. The reference to the month of October is because the date for national elections (as well as many state and local elections) occurs between November 2 and 8, and therefore events that take place in late October have greater potential to influence the decisions of prospective voters.

The term came into use shortly after the 1972 presidential election between Republican incumbent Richard Nixon and Democrat George McGovern, when the United States was in the fourth year of negotiations to end the very long and domestically divisive Vietnam War. On October 26, 1972, twelve days before the election on November 7, the United States' chief negotiator, the presidential National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger, appeared at a press conference held at the White House and announced, "We believe that peace is at hand".

Nixon, despite having vowed to end the unpopular war during his presidential election campaign four years earlier, had failed to either cease hostilities or gradually bring about an end to the war. Nixon was nevertheless already widely considered to be assured of an easy reelection victory against McGovern, but Kissinger's "peace is at hand" declaration may have increased Nixon's already high standing with the electorate. In the event, Nixon outpolled McGovern in every state except Massachusetts and achieved a 20 point lead in the nationwide popular vote. The fighting ended in 1973, but soldiers remained in Vietnam until 1975.

Since that election, the term "October surprise" has been used preemptively during campaign season by partisans of one side to discredit late-campaign news by the other side.

ဦးေက်ာ္ဇံသာ။ ။ ဒါက ရာဇဝတ္မႈပဲ။ ဘာသာေရးႏွင့္ ဘာမွ မဆိုင္ပါဘူး။ အဲဒါကေတာ့ ရာဇဝတ္မႈကို အဲဒီ ဘယ္သူ၊ ဘယ္ဘာသာ၊ ဘယ္ဘာသာ ဆိုတာ ထည့္ေျပာစရာကို မလိုတဲ့ကိစၥပါ။

ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္။ ။ က်ေနာ္ ထင္သေလာက္ဆိုရင္ေတာ့ ဒီေနရာမွာ ပါတီေတြရဲ ႔ ဂယက္ေတြလည္း အမ်ားႀကီးပါမယ္လို႔ က်ေနာ္ထင္ပါတယ္။ အဲဒီ အဖြဲ႔အစည္းက ဒီ လႈပ္ရွားေနတဲ့ လူေတြမရွိရင္လည္း  ဒီလို ရာဇဝတ္မႈတစ္ခု ဒီေလာက္ ရခုိင္ျပည္နယ္ႀကီး တစ္ခုလံုး ျပာက်ဆင္းရဲသြားေလာက္ေအာင္ အသည္းအသန္ႏွင့္ တကယ့္ေနာက္ကြယ္က ကန္႔လန္႔ကာေနာက္ကြယ္ကလူ အႀကီးအကဲေတြ မရွိဘဲႏွင့္ ဒါေတြေတာ့ ျဖစ္ႏိုင္မယ္လို႔ က်ေနာ္မထင္ပါဘူး။

ဦးေက်ာ္ဇံသာ။ ။ က်ေနာ္လည္း အဲဒါစဥ္းစားမိတာ။ အဲဒီေတာ့ ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္ က်ေနာ္ တခုေမးခ်င္တာက ေက်ာက္နီေမာ္ မဲဆႏၵနယ္ ရွိသလား။

ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္။ ။ ရွိပါတယ္။

ဦးေက်ာ္ဇံသာ။ ။ အဲဒီ ေက်ာက္နီေမာ္ မဲဆႏၵနယ္က လႊတ္ေတာ္အမတ္ေတြက ဘယ္သူေတြလဲ။

ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္။ ။ ေက်ာက္နီေမာ္္ မဲဆႏၵနယ္က ျပည္ခုိင္ရုံးပါတီကေတာ့ က်ေနာ္တုိ႔ ေက်ာက္နီေမာ္ မဲဆႏၵနယ္က ဒီလိုပါ ရမ္းၿဗဲၿမိဳ ႔နယ္ အမွတ္ (၂) မဲဆႏၵနယ္ပါ။ အမွတ္ (၂) မဲဆႏၵနယ္မွာေတာ့  ျပည္ေထာင္စု ႀကံ့ခိုင္ေရးဖြံ႔ျဖိဳးေရးပါတီအတြက္ ျပည္နယ္တိုင္းေဒသႀကီးအတြက္ လႊတ္ေတာ္ကိုယ္စားလွယ္က အခု လက္ရွိ လမ္းပန္းဆက္သြယ္ေရးမွာ ဝန္ႀကီးျဖစ္ေနတဲ့ ဗိုလ္မႈးႀကီးဦးေက်ာ္ခင္၊ ရခုိင္တိုးတက္ေရးပါတီမွာၾကေတာ့ ရခိုင္တိုးတက္ေရးပါတီရဲ ႔ ပုဂၢိဳလ္အမတ္ေလာင္းၾကေတာ့ က်ေနာ္ မမွတ္မိဘူး။ ေနာက္တစ္ေယာက္ က်ေနာ္တို႔ အစၥလာမ္ဘာသာ ကမန္အမ်ဳိးသားတိုးတက္ေရးပါတီမွာၾကေတာ့ ဦးထြန္းျမင့္ ပါတယ္။

ဦးေက်ာ္ဇံသာ ။ ။ အဲဒီေတာ့ ျပည္နယ္လႊတ္ေတာ္အတြက္ ကမန္ကိုယ္စားလွယ္လည္း ပါတယ္။ သူတို႔ေတြကေကာ ပါတီအခ်င္းခ်င္း လႊတ္ေတာ္မွာ ပါတီအခ်င္းခ်င္း လက္တြဲလုပ္ေနၾကလား။ သူတို႔အခ်င္းခ်င္း ညိွႏႈိင္းေျဖရွင္းဖို႔ ထိန္းသိမ္းဖို႔ ႀကိဳးစားတာေကာ မရွိဘူးလား။

ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္ ။ ။ အဲဒါေတာ့ အာဏာရပါတီကေတာ့ ေလာေလာဆယ္ ျပည္ေထာင္စုႀကံ့ခိုင္ေရး  ဖြံ႔ျဖိဳးေရးပါတီႏွင့္၊ ဒုတိယပါတီကေတာ့ က်ေနာ္တို႔ ရခိုင္တိုးတက္ေရးပါတီ၊ တတိယ လံုးဝ မဲအျပည္႔ရတာကေတာ့ ကမန္အမ်ဳိးသားတိုးတက္ေရးပါတီ ျဖစ္တယ္။ ဒီေနရာမွာ ေနာင္ election ေတြမွာ ရခိုင္မ်ဳိးခ်စ္ စိတ္ဓါတ္ေတြကို ေမြးျမဴးျပီးေတာ့ ရခိုင္ျပည္နယ္မွာ ဘယ္ပါတီကိုမွ အလိုမရွိေလာက္ေအာင္ ဒီဟာ နည္းတစ္မ်ိဳးမ်ိဳးႏွင့္ သူတို႔ေတြရဲ ႔ စိတ္ဓာတ္ေတြကို အမ်ိဳးသား၊ အမ်ိဳးသမီးအာလုံးကို တက္တက္ၾကြၾကြႏွင့္ ရခိုင္တိုးတက္ေရးပါတီေသာ္လည္းေကာင္း၊ ရခုိင္ဒီမိုကရက္တစ္ပါတီေသာ္ လည္းေကာင္း၊ ႏွစ္ခုစလံုးကို ပူးေပါင္းၿပီးေတာ့ ဘယ္ႀကံ့ခုိင္ေရးပါတီကိုပဲျဖစ္ျဖစ္၊ အမ်ိဳးဒီမိုကေရစီပါတီဝင္ပဲျဖစ္ျဖစ္ ဘယ္သူကိုမွ မေပးေစခ်င္တဲ့ သေဘာမ်ိဳးမ်ား ရွိေကာင္းရွိမလားဆိုတာကိုလည္း က်ေနာ္တို႔ ေတြးေတာမိပါတယ္။

ဦးေက်ာ္ဇံသာ ။ ။ က်ေနာ္ တခုထင္တာကေတာ့ ကမန္ဆိုတာကေတာ့ ရခိုင္ျပည္မွာ ကမန္ဆိုတဲ့နာမည္ ကိုယ္ႏိႈက္ကလည္း ဂုဏ္ယူစရာေကာင္းတဲ့ နာမည္ပါ။ ေလးပစ္တဲ့ ေလးသည္ေတာ္ေတြ၊ ရခိုင္ဘုရင္တပ္မွာ အမႈထမ္းခဲ့တဲ့ စစ္သည္ေတာ္ေကာင္းေတြဆိုတဲ့ နာမည္ တေလးတစား ေခၚေဝၚခံယူတဲ့ နာမည္ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။ ေနာက္ ကမန္လူမ်ိဳးေတြမွာ ဘာသာေရးကလြဲရင္ ဘာသာစကားလည္း ရခိုင္စကားပဲ ေျပာၾကတာပဲ။ ရခုိင္လိုပဲ ဝတ္ေနၾကတာပဲမို႔လား။

ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္ ။ ။ ဟုတ္ကဲ့ပါ။ ဟုတ္ပါတယ္။

ဦးေက်ာ္ဇံသာ။ ။ ဆိုေတာ့ အဲဒီဟာမွာ အခုအခါမွာ တခ်ိဳ ႔က ရခုိင္တခ်ိဳ ႔ကို က်ေနာ္ ေလ့လာမိတာေတာ့ သူတို႔ ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာဆိုတာကိုေတာ့ သူတို႔ သိပ္ျပီးမႏွစ္သက္ၾကဘူး။ ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာဆိုတာ အသစ္ဖန္တီးၿပီးေတာ့ ဝင္လာတယ္။ ဘာညာဆိုၿပီးေတာ့ ေျပာၾကတာရွိတယ္။ သူတို႔ဖက္က။ ကမန္ေတြက ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာ ျဖစ္သြားျပီးလား။ တခ်ိဳ ႔က ကမန္ကိုလည္းပဲ ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာ စာရင္းထဲမွာ ထည့္ၿပီးေတာ့ ျပေနၾကတာ ေတြ႔ပါတယ္။ ကမန္ေတြဟာ ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာဆိုတဲ့ သေဘာကို ခံယူေနခ်င္ၾကတဲ့ သေဘာမ်ားရွိေနသလား။

ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္ ။ ။ အဲဒါေတာ့ က်ေနာ္တို႔ ရခုိင္ျပည္ေတာင္းဘက္ပိုင္းမွာေတာ့ အထူးသျဖင့္ ေက်ာက္ျဖဴရယ္၊ ရမ္းၿဗဲရယ္၊ သံတြဲရယ္ ဒီေနရာမွာရွိတဲ့ လူေတြၾကေတာ့ အခုေန က်ေနာ္တို႔ ရမ္းၿဗဲၿမိဳ ႔နယ္မွာၾကေတာ့ ပိုၿပီးေတာ့ ကင္းရွင္းတယ္။ လူစိမ့္ဝင္မႈဆိုတာလည္း ဘဂၤလားေဒ့ရွ္က လူစိမ့္ဝင္မႈ၊ ႏုိင္ငံရပ္ျခားက စိမ့္ဝင္မႈ ဆိုိတာ လံုးဝမရွိသေလာက္ပါ။ ေနာက္ ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာကိစၥကလည္း ဒီ ရမ္းၿဗဲကၽြန္းတန္းမွာ ေက်ာက္ျဖဴခရိုင္ရွိတယ္၊ ရမ္းၿဗဲၿမိဳ ႔နယ္ရွိတယ္၊ ေက်ာက္နီေမာ္အုပ္စုရွိတယ္။ ဒီဟာထဲမွာလည္း က်ေနာ္တုိ႔  ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာဆိုတာကိုလည္း လူေတြက ဘယ္လုိနည္းႏွင့္မွ သူတို႔က ရိုဟင္ဂ်ာကိုလည္းပဲ သူတို႔က သေဘာလည္း မေပါက္ဘူး။ လက္လည္းမခံတဲ့လူေတြ ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။ က်ေနာ္တို႔ ကိုယ္တိုင္ကလည္း ဒီလုိပါ။ ဘဂၤလီဆိုတာကေတာ့ ေဝးေပါ့။ ဘဂၤလီဆိုတာကေတာ့ ဒီေနရာမွာ က်ေနာ္တို႔ ေက်ာက္နီေမာ္ေဒသ အေနႏွင့္ ဆိုရင္လည္း ေမာင္းေတာ၊ ဘူးသီးေတာင္ဖက္က ဒီေနရာမွာ အေျခစုိက္ၿပီးေတာ့ ေနတာေတြ မရွိသလိုပါပဲ။ အမွန္အားျဖင့္ ေျပာရရင္ လံုးဝမရွိတဲ့ အတိုင္းအတာပါ။

ဦးေက်ာ္ဇံသာ ။ ။ ဆိုေတာ့ တခ်ိဳ ႔ကလည္း ေျပာတယ္။ အဲဒီလို ဘူးသီးေတာင္၊ ေမာင္းေတာဘက္က ဟိုဘက္က ဝင္လာတယ္လို႔ ယူဆရတဲ့သူေတြကို ခရီးသြားလာခြင့္ပိတ္တယ္။ လက္ထပ္ထိမ္းျမားခြင့္ေတာင့္မွ ခြင့္ျပဳခ်က္ ယူရတယ္ဆိုတာေတြ လုပ္တယ္လို႔ ေျပာတယ္။ အဲဒီလို ဥပေဒမ်ိဳး ဒီ ကမန္ေဒသေတြမွာေကာ လုပ္ခဲ့လား။ ေက်ာက္ျဖဴတို႔…

ဦးေမာင္ေမာင္တင္ ။ ။ အမ်ားႀကီး လုပ္ခဲ့ပါတယ္။ အမ်ားႀကီး အမ်ားႀကီး လုပ္ခဲ့ပါတယ္။ က်ေနာ္တို႔ ကိုယ္တိုင္ ကုိယ္ႏႈိက္ကပဲ ၂၀၀၈ ခုႏွစ္က က်ေနာ္တို႔ မွတ္ပံုတင္ရွိတဲ့ ကမန္ႏိုင္ငံသားမွတ္ပံုတင္ရွိတဲ႔ ကမန္ေတြပဲ။ ၂၀၀၈ ခုႏွစ္က က်ေနာ့္အမ်ိဳးသမီး ေဆးကုဖို႔သြားတဲ့ အခ်ိန္ေတာင္မွ က်ေနာ္အမ်ိဳးသမီးက အမတကဒ္ ေပါ့ေနာ္။ ပန္းေရာင္သုံးေခါက္ခ်ိဳးေပါ့။ က်ေနာ္မွာေတာ့ ႏိုင္ငံသား စီစစ္ေရးကဒ္ ရွိပါတယ္။ အဲဒီအခ်ိန္မွာ က်ေနာ္တို႔ ဗီဇာေတြ ဘာေတြ ယူၿပီးေတာ့ဘဲ သြားခဲ့ရတာ ရွိပါတယ္။

What It Took To Bring Them Back to the Nest

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 06:44 AM PDT

Parents in New York City are discovering what it ultimately takes to get their 20-something children to come over for a nice quiet evening at home: the prospect of living without power, water or Internet in their own downtown apartments.

With lower Manhattan plunged into darkness by Hurricane Sandy and power still far from being restored, many young New Yorkers are fleeing their homes in hip, downtown neighborhoods and trudging back home to their parents' in search of a flushing toilet, Internet connection and a place to charge their phones.

In return, mom and dad are finally getting a chance to grill their children about their marriage prospects and career ambitions. Given that subways remain on the fritz, many businesses are still shuttered and most New York apartments are tiny, there's nowhere to hide.

"When there's nothing to talk about, it becomes 'What else can we bother Arzi about?'" said Arzi Rachman, a freelance PR specialist who has been living with his mother and aunt in Queens since Saturday. "I've been getting a lot of the regular, 'Hey, you're in your mid-20s. What are you doing with your life? Are you married? Why not?'"

"It's a lot of parent time," agreed Chris, who asked to be identified by his first name only and has been staying with his parents at their Upper East Side apartment since his own place 20 blocks south lost power. "They're getting to ask all the questions they don't ask over the phone or email about."

Sophie Robbins, who has been sharing a one-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side with her parents, brother and three dogs, says the close quarters are creating a "bizarre shift" in her relationship with her parents: As she's gotten older, she's grown accustomed to having a more adult rapport with her mother and father. Since being back at home, however, one moment she's the boss, telling them where to find batteries and guiding them through the city, and the next her mother is telling her to stay away from the window for fear of strong winds.

"I'm either the child or the one in charge," said Robbins. "There's no in-between."

Aziz Bari Bertanding Di Sabak Bernam Atas Tiket PKR

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 07:30 AM PDT

PKR yakin dapat merampas semula kerusi Parlimen Sabak Bernam pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU13) selepas mengumumkan calon baru bagi kerusi tersebut iaitu bekas pensyarah di Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM), Dr Abdul Aziz Bari.

Difahamkan, sebelum ini, Ketua PKR Cabang Sabak Bernam, Dr Badrolamin Baharon dicalonkan bertanding bagi kerusi itu.

Abdul Aziz berkata, pemilihannya sebagai calon bagi kerusi berkenaan adalah atas arahan Ketua Umum PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Katanya, beliau yakin dapat merampas semula kerusi Parlimen Sabak Bernam memandangkan terdapat beberapa penambahbaikan dilakukan Kerajaan Negeri sebelum ini.

Pada 2008, kerusi Sabak Bernama dimenangi oleh calon BN dari Umno, Abd Rahman Bakri, yang menewaskan Badrolamin.

"Kerajaan Negeri telah melaksanakan beberapa penambahbaikan dalam memastikan hak rakyat tidak diabaikan dan ini adalah kekuatan kita bagi merampas kembali kerusi Parlimen di sini," katanya kepada Sinar Harian, semalam.

Beliau berkata, dia tidak berasa tergugat dengan kekuatan dimiliki Umno memandangkan pihaknya mempunyai kekuatan tersendiri bagi menawan kerusi di Parlimen Sabak Bernam.

"Saya yakin ini adalah masa tepat bagi kami merampas kerusi di Parlimen ini memandangkan sokongan rakyat juga dilihat semakin kuat terhadap PKR," katanya.

Abdul Aziz berkata, menerusi ceramah-ceramah yang dijalankan di sekitar daerah ini, jelas menunjukkan rakyat semakin matang dalam memilih pemimpin bersih serta mahukan pucuk pimpinan amanah.

Beliau berkata, ia dapat dibuktikan dengan sesi ceramah yang diadakan di Bagan Terap di mana rakyat sudah bijak dalam menilai sesebuah parti politik dengan turut sama turun padang memberi sokongan ketika program dijalankan.

"Bagan Terap merupakan kawasan hitam satu masa dulu memandangkan PKR pernah kalah teruk pada 2008, namun menerusi beberapa ceramah yang dijalankan kini, jelas menunjukkan penglibatan daripada ramai penduduk yang turut turun bagi memberi sokongan," katanya.

Menurutnya, disebabkan faktor itu, Umno semakin takut menghadapi PRU13 memandangkan sokongan dilihat semakin tipis.

Katanya, kajian dijalankannya sejak 2004 jelas menunjukkan kadar peningkatan sokongan rakyat terhadap parti itu semakin meningkat memandangkan pucuk pimpinan yang dianggap telus dalam membantu mendapatkan hak rakyat.

"Saya yakin PKR akan menang berdasarkan kajian yang saya jalankan menunjukkan pertambahan sokongan bagi parti ini," katanya.

Menurutnya, pada PRU13 nanti PKR mungkin akan kalah dalam beberapa kerusi namun peratusan undian penduduk dijangka akan meningkat sebanyak lima peratus bagi setiap peti undi.

Katanya, pada PRU lalu, kebanyakan disuarakan PKR dilihat retorik namun kini parti berkenaan dapat membuktikan ia menjadi realiti di samping membuka mata rakyat.

"Ini merupakan salah satu kekuatan kita dalam memastikan kerusi Parlimen berkenaan dapat dirampas," katanya.

Dalam pada itu Abdul Aziz berkata, sebelum ini, beliau turut menerima pelawaan daripada Pas dan DAP yang memintanya untuk bertanding di beberapa kawasan lain.

Katanya, bagaimanapun pelawaan tersebut ditolaknya kerana mahu memberi perkhidmatan terbaik di kampung halamannya.

"Saya berasal dari sini dan saya mahukan perubahan terhadap pucuk pimpinan di samping memberi perkhidmatan adil kepada penduduk setempat," katanya.

Beliau berharap rakyat dapat memberi peluang kepada PKR membuktikan kemampuan mereka dalam menguruskan daerah tersebut.

Sementara itu, Badrolamin enggan memberi sebarang komen berhubung perkara tersebut.

Myanmar must protect Muslims and halt discrimination, U.N. says

Myanmar must protect Muslims and halt discrimination, U.N. saysupdated 10/31/2012 11:53:24 AM ET

GENEVA (Reuters) – U.N. human rights investigators called on Myanmar on Wednesday to halt deadly sectarian violence and warned it not to use the conflict as a pretext to remove Rohingya minority Muslims.

Some 89 people have been killed in clashes between Buddhist Rakhines and Muslim Rohingyas in western Myanmar in the past 10 days, according to the latest official toll.

"This situation must not become an opportunity to permanently remove an unwelcome community," said a joint statement issued by Tomas Ojea Quintana, U.N. special rapporteur on Myanmar, and independent experts on minority issues and the internally displaced.

They voiced their "deep concern about the assertion of the government and others that the Rohingya are illegal immigrants and stateless persons".

"If the country is to be successful in the process of democratic transition, it must be bold in addressing the human rights challenges that exist," Ojea Quintana said.

"In the case of Rakhine State, this involves addressing the long-standing endemic discrimination against the Rohingya community that exists within sections of local and national government as well as society at large."

The Rohingyas say their homes were burned down by Rakhines armed with slingshots, wooden staves, knives and gasoline.

The United Nations says more than 97 percent of the 28,108 people who have fled the violence are Muslims, mostly stateless Rohingya. Many now live in camps, joining 75,000 mostly Rohingya displaced in June after a previous explosion of sectarian violence killed at least 80 people.

Fearful Buddhists and Muslims are arming themselves with homemade weapons, testing the reformist government's resolve to prevent a new wave of violence.

Rita Izsak, U.N. independent expert on minority issues, said the Rohingya constituted a minority which must be protected according to international minority rights standards.

"The government must take steps to review relevant laws and procedures to provide equal access by the Rohingya community to citizenship and promote dialogue and reconciliation between communities," she said.

The U.N. refugee agency has called on authorities to restore law and order so as to prevent further bloodshed and displacement. An estimated 6,000 people are stranded on boats or on islets along Myanmar's western coast, it said on Tuesday.

"We are appealing to neighboring countries, Bangladesh being very much one of them, to keep borders open. It is clearly important that people do have access to safe haven," UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told a news briefing on Tuesday.

Burmese Muslims flock to displacement camps after fresh clashes with Buddhists – video

Conflict between majority Buddhist Rakhine and minority Muslim Rohingya populations in Burma has forced many Rohingya people to flee their homes. Tens of thousands of refugees are now in displacement camps along Burma's west coast. This was the most serious outbreak of violence since June, when a Rakhine woman was allegedly raped and murdered by several Rohingya men

Tuduhan "Creative Accounting" MP Kota Belud Hina Jabatan Audit Negara

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 03:42 AM PDT

DAP: Nak percaya ketua audit atau Rahman Dahlan? Anggota parlimen DAP hari ini menyelar tindakan Majlis Ahli Parlimen BN (BNBBC) yang mendakwa Pakatan Rakyat memanipulasikan perakaunan kreatif dalam Laporan Ketua Audit Negara 2011.

"Mereka mempersoalkan kebijaksanaan dan ketelusan Ketua Audit Negara (Ambrin Buang)," kata wakil rakyat Bukit Bendera Liew Chin Tong (kanan).

Liew berkata, menuduh negeri Pakatan memindah dana akaun amanah bermaksud seolah-olah ketua audit negara dan kakitangannya tidak mampu melakukan semakan menyeluruh dan mengesan amalan yang dipersoalkan.

"Siapa yang kita hendak percaya? MP Kota Belud (Abdul Rahman Dahlan) atau ketua audit negara?" soalnya.

BNBBC semalam mendakwa, Pakatan terlibat dengan perakaunan kreatif untuk menjadikan negeri pimpinan mereka nampak elok dalam Laporan Ketua Audit Negara.

Abdul Rahman sebagai timbalan ketua BNBBC mendakwa, perkara itu dilakukan dengan memindahkan dana daripada akaun amanah negeri kepada akaun yang disatukan dan menjadikannya sebagai hasil.

Tuduhan 'Creative Accounting' Di Selangor Tidak Berasas

SHAH ALAM, 31 OKT : Tuduhan bahawa Kerajaan Selangor mengamalkan "creative accounting" adalah melampau dan tidak berasas kerana kesahihannya telah diperakui oleh Laporan Ketua Audit Negara 2011.

Menteri Besar, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim berkata, Penyata Kewangan Kerajaan Negeri Selangor disediakan mengikut Piawaian Perakaunan Kerajaan yang dikeluarkan oleh Jabatan Akauntan Negara Malaysia.

Menurutnya, ia selaras dengan piawaian perakaunan berasaskan "International Public Sector Accounting Standards – Financial Reporting Under Cash Basis Accounting".

Malah, Laporan Ketua Audit Negara 2011 sebelum ini menyatakan Penyata Kewangan Kerajaan Selangor pada keseluruhannya menunjukkan gambaran yang benar dan saksama tentang kedudukan kewangan Negeri bagi tahun berakhir 31 Disember 2011.

Laporan tersebut juga mengatakan rekod perakaunan Kerajaan Selangor telah diselenggarakan dengan teratur dan dikemas kini.

"Kerajaan Negeri mengambil berat tuduhan bahawa Negeri Selangor mengamalkan "creative accounting" atau mengubah suai akaun kedudukan kewangan negeri yang terkandung dalam Laporan Ketua Audit Negara 2011.

"Tuduhan yang dibuat oleh Kelab Penyokong Barisan Nasional adalah tidak bertanggungjawab dan tidak benar sama sekali.

"Ia juga memperkecilkan keupayaan Ketua Audit Negara dan kakitangan awam yang bekerja keras menyediakan laporan dengan penuh tertib dan profesional.

"Walaupun terdapat isu yang boleh dilaporkan dengan baik terutama isu Tabung Warisan Anak Selangor (Tawas) dan Universiti Selangor (Unisel), Kerajaan Negeri berpendapat keseluruhan laporan tersebut tidak patut dipersoalkan.

" Abdul Khalid berkata demikian dalam sidang media selepas mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Exco, di sini.

Selain itu, katanya, Sistem Perakaunan Berkomputer Standard Kerajaan Negeri (SPEKS) yang digunapakai bagi mengakaunkan semua urusniaga bayaran dan terimaan adalah sistem perakaunan bersepadu yang dibangunkan oleh Jabatan Akauntan Negara.

Tambahnya, Kerajaan Negeri juga sentiasa mengingatkan kakitangan awam supaya mengamalkan ketelusan dan kebertanggungjawaban dalam menjalankan tugas serta berjimat cermat meluluskan perbelanjaan.

"Ini antara faktor yang menjadikan kedudukan kewangan Kerajaan Negeri diklasfikasikan sebagai "baik" oleh Jabatan Audit Negara dengan peningkatan dari segi wang simpanan, hasil, pelaburan dan pengurusan kewangan.

"Kerajaan Negeri berharap tuduhan palsu ini tidak menjejaskan komitmen kakitangan awam untuk membantu menguruskan pentadiran negeri Selangor demi kesejahteraan rakyat," katanya lagi.

R2P or RtoP or responsibility to protect

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 01:53 AM PDT

Source: Wikipedia: R2P or RtoP or responsibility to protect

The responsibility to protect (R2P or RtoP) is a United Nations initiative established in 2005. It consists of an emerging norm, or set of principles, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a right, but a responsibility.[1] R2P focuses on preventing and halting four crimes: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing, which it places under the generic umbrella term of, Mass Atrocity Crimes.[2] The Responsibility to Protect has three "pillars".

  1. A state has a responsibility to protect its population from mass atrocities;
  2. The international community has a responsibility to assist the state to fulfill its primary responsibility;
  3. If the state fails to protect its citizens from mass atrocities and peaceful measures have failed, the international community has the responsibility to intervene through coercive measures such as economic sanctions. Military intervention is considered the last resort.[3][4]

In the international community R2P is a norm, not a law.[5] R2P provides a framework for using tools that already exist, i.e. mediation, early warning mechanisms, economic sanctioning, and chapter VII powers, to prevent mass atrocities. Civil society organizations, States, regional organizations, and international institutions all have a role to play in the R2P process. The authority to employ the last resort and intervene militarily rests solely with United Nations Security Council and the General Assembly.

The United Nations mandate

At the 2005 World Summit, Member States included R2P in the Outcome Document agreeing to Paragraphs 138 and 139. These paragraphs gave final language to the scope of R2P. It applies to the four mass atrocities crimes only. It also identifies to whom the R2P protocol applies, i.e., nations first, regional and international communities second.

Paragraphs 138 and 139 state:

138. Each individual State has the responsibility to protect its populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. This responsibility entails the prevention of such crimes, including their incitement, through appropriate and necessary means. We accept that responsibility and will act in accordance with it. The international community should, as appropriate, encourage and help States to exercise this responsibility and support the United Nations in establishing an early warning capability.

139. The international community, through the United Nations, also has the responsibility to use appropriate diplomatic, humanitarian and other peaceful means, in accordance with Chapters VI and VIII of the Charter, to help protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. In this context, we are prepared to take collective action, in a timely and decisive manner, through the Security Council, in accordance with the Charter, including Chapter VII, on a case-by-case basis and in cooperation with relevant regional organizations as appropriate, should peaceful means be inadequate and national authorities manifestly fail to protect their populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. We stress the need for the General Assembly to continue consideration of the responsibility to protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity and its implications, bearing in mind the principles of the Charter and international law. We also intend to commit ourselves, as necessary and appropriate, to helping States build capacity to protect their populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity and to assisting those which are under stress before crises and conflicts break out.

2005 World Summit Outcome Document.[3]

In April 2006, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) reaffirmed the provisions of paragraphs 138 and 139 in resolution (S/RES/1674). This formalized their support for the Responsibility to Protect.[10] The next major advancement in R2P came in January 2009, when UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon released a report called Implementing the Responsibility to Protect.[11] His report led to a debate in the General Assembly in July 2009 and the first time since 2005 that the General Assembly had come together to discuss the responsibility to protect. Ninety-four member states spoke. Most supported the R2P principle although some important concerns were voiced. They discussed how to implement R2P in crisis situations around the world. The debate highlighted the need for regional organizations like the African Union to play a strong role in implementing R2P; the need for stronger early warning mechanisms in the United Nations; and the need to clarify the roles UN bodies would play in implementing R2P.[12][13]

One outcome of the debate was the first resolution referencing R2P adopted by the General Assembly. The Resolution (A/RES/63/308) showed that the international community had not forgotten about the concept of the responsibility to protect and it decided "to continue its consideration of the responsibility to protect."[14]

In practice

Threshold for military interventions

According to the International Commission for Intervention and State Sovereignty (ICISS) Report in 2001 (which was not adopted by national governments), any form of a military intervention initiated under the premise of responsibility to protect must fulfill the following six criteria in order to be justified as an extraordinary measure of intervention:

  1. Just Cause
  2. Right Intention
  3. Final Resort
  4. Legitimate Authority
  5. Proportional Means
  6. Reasonable Prospect

R2P scope

The scope of R2P is often questioned. The concern is whether R2P should apply to more than the four crimes: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing. For example, should R2P be used to protect civilians in peril following natural disasters? In general, the consensus is that the scope of R2P should remain narrow and well-defined. At the General Assembly debate on R2P in July 2009, several Member States reaffirmed the original scope of R2P and said that broadening the applicability of R2P could diminish its effectiveness.

Use of military intervention

The question of military intervention under the third pillar of R2P remains controversial.[22] Several states have argued that R2P should not allow the international community to intervene militarily on States, because to do so is an infringement upon sovereignty. Others argue that this a necessary facet of R2P, and is necessary as a last resort to stop mass atrocities. A related argument surrounds the question as to whether more specific criteria should be developed to determine when the Security Council should authorize military intervention.

Selectivity in the Security Council

Another concern surrounding R2P is that the Security Council in the UN, when deciding to which crises R2P applies, have been selective and biased. A veto from one of the five permanent members brings bias to the process. As an example, the UNSC did not vote to intervene in Chechnya because Russia opposed such action.[23] This has been acknowledged as an issue of major concern, and has hindered the implementation of R2P. Some of those involved advocate that the UNSC permanent members agree not to use their veto when proven mass atrocities are taking place.[citation needed]

The Wages of Libya - Careers have ended over less than the administration cover-up by Victor Davis Hanson

Posted: 31 Oct 2012 11:52 PM PDT

We have had ambassadors murdered abroad before, but we have never seen anything quite like the tragic fate of Chris Stevens. Amid all the controversy over Libya, we have lost sight of the human — and often horrific — story of Benghazi: a U.S. ambassador attacked, cut off and killed alone, after being abused by frenzied terrorists, and a second member of the embassy staff murdered, as two American private citizens rushed to the rescue, heroically warding off Islamist hit teams, until they were overwhelmed and also killed.

Seven weeks after the tragedy in Benghazi, new government narratives just keep appearing, as various branches of government point the finger at one another. Now the president insists that "the minute" he "found out what was going on" he gave "very clear directives" to "make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to." The secretary of defense argues that he knew too little to send in military forces to save the post. Meanwhile, we are hearing from other sources that the beleaguered compound in extremis was denied help on three separate occasions, and there are still more contradictory accounts.

When the government systematically misleads and cannot establish a believable narrative, almost everyone involved is eventually tarred. The final chart of those officials in the Nixon White House who were devoured by Watergate was vast — and so it is becoming with the disaster in Libya. If we have learned anything from Watergate and Iran-Contra, it is that the longer officials deceive and obfuscate, the greater the number of wrecked careers and reputations.

Most likely, the political wing of the White House almost immediately made a decision that the attack on our Benghazi consulate should not endanger the conventional narrative of a successful commander-in-chief — ahead in the polls in part because he had highlighted a supposedly successful foreign policy. Key to that story was the notion that the hit on bin Laden and the drone attacks on other Islamists had rendered al-Qaeda all but impotent. In addition, the administration's supposed lead-from-behind strategy in Libya had served as a model for energizing a democratic Arab Spring. Commander-in-Chief Obama was intent on reminding the country of his competence and toughness as an international leader, and especially of his wise reluctance to rush into areas of instability.

In such a landscape, Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans were brutally murdered. And almost immediately it was clear that the ambassador had earlier warned that Libya was descending into chaos and that Americans were not safe there — only to have his requests for further protection rejected. During the actual assault on the consulate, a real-time video, streams of e-mail exchanges, and surveys of Islamist websites confirmed that al-Qaedists were carrying out a preplanned assassination — and over the next seven or eight hours it became clear that our staff was in dire need of military assistance that was somehow never sent. 

Then for nearly two weeks, the president, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Press Secretary Jay Carney, and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice advanced a counter-narrative that simply could not have been true: A spontaneous demonstration over a two-month-old video — just happening to coincide with the anniversary of 9/11 — got out of hand as some disruptive protesters showed up with machines gun, mortars, and RPGs and began killing Americans. Since it was an American religious bigot who had prompted such terrible but "natural" riots with his video that ridiculed and injured Islam, we should apologize for the uncouth among us in the strongest terms.

Obama, Clinton, Clapper, Rice, and Carney strove to outdo each other in damning the obscure video maker — to such an extent that he was summarily arrested on a supposedly outstanding probation charge. The message? Ambassadors die and careful U.S. foreign policy is undermined when right-wing bigots abuse their free-speech rights.Yet almost all of that story is untrue, and it will come back to haunt all those who either by intent or through ignorance engaged in the cover-up. Review the following spinners.

President Obama still does not grasp the significance of Libya. When he calls the attacks there and in Egypt "bumps in the road" or "not optimal," and asserts that they will not play much of a role in the final weeks of the campaign, he sounds either callous or naïve or both. Collate the administration's statements over the two weeks following the attacks, and they simply cannot be true. The months-old video proved just too much of a temptation for the president to resonate the themes of his Cairo speech in damning uncouth Americans for offending Muslims. When the president claims that he ordered everything to be done to save the compound, he must be aware that subordinates who did not in turn give orders that relief be sent will eventually come forward to either affirm or deny his statement. 

His further problem is that lax security, administration misdirection, and hesitancy to aid the beleaguered all feed into the earlier attitudes framed by "overseas contingency operations," "man-caused disasters," "workplace violence," promises to try KSM in a civilian court, the al-Arabiya interview, the Cairo speech, and other efforts to contextualize and airbrush radical Islam's terrorist assault on the West. In other words, fairly or not, we can discern a logic to why the president would not be candid and accurate about Benghazi. National Review

I am a daydreamer because dreams give me hope and I always think, plan, prepare and try my best to achieve my dreams. I used to dream about the future of our country. This article is meant as my excuses for writing the dream interviews.

All men dream, but not equally.

Those who dream by night,

in the dusty recess of their minds,

wake in the day to find that it was vanity.

But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,

for they may act their dreams with the open eyes,

to make it possible.

TE Lawrence

Dreams give us hope,

Hope ignites passion,

Passion leads us to envision success.

Visions of success open our minds to possibilities,

Far-reaching possibilities help us to enlist support from others,

Support from others keeps us focused and committed.

Focus and commitment foster action,

Action results in progress,

Progress leads to achievement,

Achievement inspires dreams,

Dreams give us hope."…..

(author, unknown)

I know how men in exile feed on dreams of hope.

Aeschylus (525 BC – 456 BC), Agamemnon

To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.

Anatole France (1844 – 1924)

Hope is a waking dream.

Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC), from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers

We need men who can dream of things that never were.

John F. Kennedy (1917 – 1963), speech in Dublin, Ireland, June 28, 1963

Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.

John Updike (1932 – )

Somehow I can't believe that there are any heights that can't be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true.

This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C s. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy.

-Walt Disney

The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance – and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.

Oprah Winfrey (1954 – ), O Magazine, September 2002

Dreams that do come true can be as unsettling as those that don't.

Brett Butler, 'Knee Deep in Paradise'

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

Edgar Allan Poe (1809 – 1849), "Eleonora"

Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.

Friedrich von Schiller (1759 – 1805)

You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1

Human beings have an inalienable right to invent themselves.

Germaine Greer, O Magazine, September 2002

There is nothing like dream to create the future. Utopia to-day, flesh and blood tomorrow.

Victor Hugo (1802 – 1885), Les Miserables, 1862

A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.

-Bo Bennett

Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions.

-Edgar Cayce

They say dreams are the windows of the soul–take a peek and you can see the inner workings, the nuts and bolts.

Henry Bromel, Northern Exposure, The Big Kiss, 1991

Cherish your vision and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.

-Napoleon Hill

"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country."

-Anais Nin, The Diaries of Anaïs Nin

Dreams surely are difficult, confusing, and not everything in them is brought to pass for mankind. For fleeting dreams have two gates: one is fashioned of horn and one of ivory. Those which pass through the one of sawn ivory are deceptive, bringing tidings which come to nought, but those which issue from the one of polished horn bring true results when a mortal sees them.

Homer (800 BC – 700 BC), The Odyssey

Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: – 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 – 1968), Speech at Civil Rights March on Washington, August 28, 1963

It hurts to find out that what you wanted doesn't match what you dreamed it would be. Randy K. Milholland, Something Positive Comic, 09-07-04

Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives.

William Dement, in Newsweek, 1959

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616), "Hamlet", Act 1 scene 5

What if nothing exists and we're all in somebody's dream? Or what's worse, what if only that fat guy in the third row exists?

Woody Allen (1935 – ), "Without Feathers"

"If you have only two pennies left in the world, with the first penny, you should buy rice to feed your family. With the second penny, say the wise Japanese, you should buy a lily. The Japanese understand the importance of dreaming…"

Japanese Proverb.

The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you enthrone in your heart – this you will build your life by, and this you will become. -James Allen, source:

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.

-James Allen

The greatest achievements were at first and for a time dreams. The oak sleeps in the acorn.

-James Allen

O reason, reason, abstract phantom of the waking state, I had already expelled you from my dreams, now I have reached a point where those dreams are about to become fused with apparent realities: now there is only room here for myself.

-Louis Aragon, Paris Peasant, "Preface to a Modern Mythology", 1926

"Anyone can escape into sleep, we are all geniuses when we dream, the butcher's the poet's equal there."

-E. M. Cioran, The Tempation to Exist

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

"the lines are attributed to John Anster in a 'very free translation' of Faust from 1835″ See author: W. H. Murray -Johann von Goethe

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

-Carl Gustav Jung

I fly in dreams, I know it is my privilege, I do not recall a single situation in dreams when I was unable to fly. To execute every sort of curve and angle with a light impulse, a flying mathematics – that is so distinct a happiness that it has permanently suffused my basic sense of happiness.

-Friedrich Nietzsche, [Unpublished fragments dating to Fall 1881]

Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing,Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before

-Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven

We have within reach, now, the attainment of almost every dream of mankind.

as cited by Susan Sackett, author of "Inside Trek: A Star Trek Memoir", used with permission -Gene Roddenberry, on receiving his honorary Doctorate at Emerson College, Boston in the early 1970s

"We must nurture our dreams like we would a child. They are God-given and just as precious. Without ambition how would a child learn to ride a bicycle, play an instrument or whistle? We deny the spirit of God when we as adults settle for less than our dreams!"

-Conway Stone

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

-Eleanor Roosevelt

"Once I dreamed I was a butterfly, and now I no longer know whether I am Chuang Tzu, who dreamed I was a butterfly, or whether I am a butterfly dreaming that I am Chuang Tzu."

-Chuang Tzu

Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.

-John Updike

"It is a good viewpoint to see the world as a dream. When you have something like a nightmare, you will wake up and tell yourself that it was only a dream. It is said that the world we live in is not a bit different from this."

-Yamamoto Tsunetomo, Hagakure

I do not know how to distinguish between our waking life and a dream. Are we not always living the life that we imagine we are?


To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

Anatole France:

Nothing happens unless first a dream.

Carl Sandburg:

When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.

Dom Helder Camara:

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.

Edward Kennedy:

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.

Gloria Steinem:

Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.


You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.

James A. Froude:

No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to flee and fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.

Jesse Jackson:

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one, I hope someday you will join us, and the world will live as one.

John Lennon:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain:

If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.

The Trumpet of Conscience Martin Luther King, jr.

If growing up is the process of creating ideas and dreams about what life should be, then maturity is letting go again.

Mary Beth Danielson:

Judge of your natural character by what you do in your dreams.

Ralph Waldo Emerson:

There is nothing like a dream to create the future.

Victor Hugo:

Yet it is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top.

Virginia Woolf:

You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one.
IMAGINE::John Lennon

A man's dreams are an index to his greatness.

20 Keping Siling Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun Ipoh Runtuh!

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 01:29 AM PDT

Ipoh: Hampir 20 keping papan siling di bahagian hadapan Klinik Dermatologi di Kompleks Klinik Pakar, Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun (HRPB) di sini runtuh hari ini (semalam).

Kejadian di tingkat satu kompleks itu disedari oleh pegawal keselamatan bertugas pada kira-kira pukul 6 pagi. Tiada kecederaan dan kemalangan jiwa dilapor.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kesihatan, Kerajaan Tempatan, Hal Ehwal Pengguna, Alam Sekitar, Pengangkutan Awam dan Hal Ehwal Bukan Islam negeri Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon berkata kejadian berpunca apabila siling tidak mampu menampung beban sejumlah saluran paip PVC yang mengandungi kabel telefon dan ICT.

"Pihak hospital telah meminta siling itu dibaiki dan kerja-kerja pembaikan dijangka siap petang ini. Kos akan ditanggung oleh pihak hospital. Pihak hospital juga akan memeriksa di bahagian lain bagi mengelak kejadian serupa berulang," katanya kepada pemberita ketika melawat kawasan kejadian.

Beliau berkata kompleks itu siap dibina pada 1994 dan telah 18 tahun menyediakan perkhidmatan perubatan pakar.

"Walaupun sudah 18 tahun usia kompleks ini, kejadian seperti ini memang tidak sepatutnya berlaku," katanya.

Seorang penyelenggara HRPB yang enggan dikenali berkata saluran paip PVC yang mengandungi kabel telefon, Internet dan ICT sepatutnya dipasang secara sistem 'trunking' pada ruang atas siling berkenaan.

Ini kerana sistem itu dapat menampung kabel yang banyak pada pemasangan yang besar atau pihak kontraktor yang memasang kemudahan itu perlu menggunakan 'bracket' bagi memastikan beban paip tidak ditampung sepenuhnya oleh siling berkenaan, katanya kepada Bernama.

Beliau yang sedang memulakan kerja pembaikan siling itu, berkata saluran paip kabel telefon, Internet dan ICT itu dipasang oleh kontraktor luar yang dibayar oleh hospital tanpa melalui mereka sebagai pihak kontraktor penyelenggaraan rasmi hospital berkenaan.

A few weeks ago, I wrote Is the End at Hand? Even though I did not mention a lot of the possibilities that are ahead of us, I gave a hint about what lies ahead of us, especially in the list of stuff that we need during a crisis. However, with the recent trail of death and destruction left behind by S***y (I am not mentioning it because I do not want my post to be picked up by any search engine), I believe I should share more.

Some of you may think I am a looney case, but I assure you I am not. There are things happening all around the world which prove beyond doubt that the topic I have been researching since 1997 is real, intimidating and will be in control sooner than we think.

What we see now in the eastern board of US is just the tip of the ice-berg of what lays ahead of all of us. Many in the US are already aware of the true picture whilst those in Asia may not be as well informed because it has yet to hit our own backyard overtly.

So, indeed, the answer to the question I asked on October 11 is 'Yes, sooner than I expected.'

We are living in the most challenging times and many are almost totally unaware of what lies ahead.

Things are not what they seem.

Worse still, people are not what they seem as well. I can safely say 2012 has been the year of awakening for me and I have been quite shocked by certain revelations about certain homo homo sapiens, both those I know and those of whom I know.

As for now, I am making lots of preparations because tough times are ahead. I am posting these links for you to consider.

I am sorry I cannot be more overt in my references but those of you who are well aware of which particular big big big big group I am talking about - would understand the nondescript nature of this post.

We need to take a macro view of what's happening on earth and not to just look at our own country.

Just watch and pray, be prepared and take time to smell the roses. Treasure life and everything we have for now...for now...for now...for one day, whoooooooof the twinkling of an eye, circumstances may change and by might be too late. God bless you.

The following links are arranged at random in no particular order of importance. I am just sounding the bell of awareness....for us to be aware and to be on guard!!! If possible, watch ALL and MORE.

If you wish to leave a comment, kindly email writetomws at ONLY for this particular post. TQ.

Frankly, I wish I had been born in the 1940s and that I died before the 21st century. :-(

Take care and may the God you believe in protect you.
