CONSUMERIST – GOING NUCLEAR IS SLEEPING WITH A PROSTITUTE!

‘The pertinent question – are we all learning a lesson or two in this saga or is it still ‘business as usual’ where we continue to sleep with the enemy @lobbyists, predator contractors, corrupt politicians and cronies who only are obsessed at getting their dirty hands and evil hearts on to the millions in payouts?’ – Dr Jacob George


CONSUMERIST – GOING NUCLEAR IS SLEEPING WITH A PROSTITUTE!

Perhaps, just perhaps, the Japanese tragedy will open up the eyes of governments who want to fast track the building of nuclear projects in their backyards!

It does not help when you have lobbyists, predator contractors, corrupt politicians and cronies waiting on the sidelines to make a huge financial killing through commissions and kickbacks!

Why Nuclear?

It is three to five times more expensive than other technologies!

The chance for cost over-runs more than five times!

The cost in decommissioning is unthinkable!

The cost in storing waste and addressing disasters shocking and alarming!

A nation and her neighbors can be brought down to their knees if calamity strikes and they will and have numerous times!

Are we ready?

So I cannot but laud at least temporarily news that China stopped approving new nuclear projects and Hong Kong began releasing real-time data on radiation levels from 10 monitoring stations as Asian governments responded in the aftermath of Japan’s earthquake.

Interestingly – China’s premier Wen Jiabao with a straight smiling face stated that approvals of new plants will be suspended, including those in the pre-development phase!

Was it the truth or was it plain fiction or crude politics, news managing and logistics maneuvering?

In the backdrop and not far were Japanese workers and strangely workers of a utility company trying desperately to cool uranium and plutonium fuel rods at reactors that nuclear experts overseas say conclusively to be emitting radiation!

Worst this was not the all – as – the global village began screening food and other exports, airline passengers Japan.

The seriousness of it all can be seen as China began giving updates on radiation levels more than once a day in 42 cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, since the crisis started!

In addition to this – Hong Kong Observatory has started providing real-time ambient gamma radiation levels from its 10 monitoring stations over the Internet, according to a statement on the government.

Our neighbors Singapore through their proactive well equipped and managed – Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority began testing seafood, fruits, vegetables and meat exported from Japan for radioactive contaminants after March 11!

The pertinent question – are we all learning a lesson or two in this saga or is it still ‘business as usual’ where we continue to sleep with the enemy @lobbyists, predator contractors, corrupt politicians and cronies who only are obsessed at getting their dirty hands and evil hearts on to the millions in payouts?

CONSUMERIST – SEX TAPE: MALAYSIANS MUST KNOW THE TRUTH!

‘Our plea is that instead of a Royal Commission or the ‘Commission of Media and NGOs’ what is preferred is the inclusion of certain independent, non political or racists NGO leaders in a select panel in the ‘closed inquiry’ while the tape be analyzed by professional forensic experts from the US, Germany or UK for its authenticity!

Once the authenticity or not of the said tape is concluded by an independent party absolutely no one in this country can or should question its findings!

And judgment and vindication should flow in a parallel track!

Malaysians deserve nothing less than the truth!’ – Dr Jacob George

 

CONSUMERIST – SEX TAPE: MALAYSIANS MUST KNOW THE TRUTH!

…vengeance, political pay-back, implausible, irrational, conspiracy, police reports, more police reports, still more police reports, demonstrations, political spins, UMNO fingerprints, Home Ministry and Police in cahoots, clandestine meetings at Parliament ……(?)

That includes data base backflow checks and of cause we can go on and on playing this like ‘a broken record!’

As far as I am concerned – these are all emotionally charged statements and bare no substantive evidence except the presence of alleged ‘political foes’ in the episode and some real shocking and damning allegations against an opposition leader!

True, some of them @’Political foes’ – are alleged to have huge baggage and skeletons in their cupboards?

But who does not?

Can any one of us rightly say we have not sinned – that – we have not stolen, cheated, lied, are corrupt, we have not coveted, committed adultery or had sex outside marriage at some stage of our life?

Really, we are all puritans and so self righteous?

We will leave that for another day!

And Yes in this saga – Statutes like the Cinematography Act, Section 292 of the Penal Code for “publicly exhibiting any obscene or pornographic material”, which was liable to three years’ jail; or Section 5(1) of the Film Censorship Act 2002, where one would be liable to be fined up to RM50, 000 or jailed up to five years or both could all be argued?

But at the same time – Malaysians need to know the truth once and for all and after our own ‘silent NGO meeting yesterday’ the decision of several NGO leaders and among them me, feel that all these allegations are distressing and disturbing!

We are sick and tired of the allegations, counter allegations and the filth that is outpouring on to both our print and electronic media!

We are saddened that our beloved nation is today torn asunder by these allegations and counter allegations as voters and media take sides!

The collateral damage finally the Malaysian society!

All because we have political pretenders, predators and shenanigans masquerading as statesmen and women!

We the voters are being tricked continually by sweet talking calculating and high pitched orator actors and the time has come to divide the sheep from the goats!

Our meeting last night’s general consensus is that the high powered police team record statements from all players in this episode and this they are professionally doing under the watchful eye of the proactive no nonsense IGP!

I have worked with present Home Minister Hishammudin as well and as far as I am concerned, he is open, fair and professional!

As far as I am concerned – he practices an ‘open door policy’ and I have only respect for him and IGP Ismail!

Our plea is that instead of a Royal Commission or the ‘Commission of Media and NGOs’ what is preferred is the inclusion of certain independent, non political or racists NGO leaders in a select panel in the ‘closed inquiry’ while the tape be analyzed by professional forensic experts from the US, Germany or UK for its authenticity!

Once the authenticity or not of the said tape is concluded by an independent party absolutely no one in this country can or should question its findings!

And after judgment, punishment or vindication should flow in a parallel track!

Malaysians deserve nothing less than the truth!

CONSUMERIST – JOSEPH SALANG APOLOGIZE TO SARAWAK CHRISTIANS!

‘Deputy Information and Culture Minister Joseph Salang Gandum is reported to have said that these Christians who gathered for a massive prayer session in Sarawak were ‘people making fools of themselves” while dismissing the rally out rightly!

If this was true – there is no ‘bigger fool and an idiot’ in Sarawak than him!

It is individuals like him that give a bad name to Barisan Nasional and put BN peers at a disadvantage, wasting time fire fighting, putting the opposition at an advantage, when we should be sensitive, caring, dedicated in delivering on our promises the way we have been in the past and will in the future!

Joseph Salang should immediately apologize to the Christians!’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST – CHRISTIANS AWAKE IN SARAWAK!

I had expected politicians to admit when they are wrong or when they have finally being caught misleading their voters to resign!

But I am aware that is not in our culture!

Instead we spin, organize massive police reports, manipulate audiences blame everyone but oneself!

Worst, when they have hurt and misread the political sentiments from the vary demography who are expected to vote them in again!

This is while I advised several of my MP friends in Sarawak to advice their political brethren not to open their mouths and get it confirmed that they are outright idiots who Premier Najib Tun Razak should take all precaution to exclude as candidates not only for the incoming state elections but the expected GE13!

Deputy Information and Culture Minister Joseph Salang Gandum is reported to have said that these Christians who gathered for a massive prayer session in Sarawak were ‘people making fools of themselves” while dismissing the rally out rightly!

If this was true – there is no ‘bigger fool and an idiot’ in Sarawak than him!

It is individuals like him that give a bad name to Barisan Nasional and put others at a disadvantage while wasting time fire fighting when we should be delivering on our promises the way we have been in the past and will in the future!

But rather than talk about him, I want to praise the organizers who were behind this turnout which saw Christians in Sarawak sending out a powerful message to the government when thousands of them turned up at a prayer rally on religious freedom!

My relatives in Sarawak say there were more than 4000 Christians packed in the Christian Ecumenical Worship Centre to pray and listen to their leaders speak on the controversial Al-Kitab issue.

I am told that the said rally was the hard work of the Sarawak Ministers Fellowship (SMF), which is an alliance of Sarawak churches including the Kuching Ministers Fellowship, Miri Pastors Fellowship, Sibu Pastors Fellowship, Bintulu Pastors Fellowship and Gempuru Besai Raban Jaku Iban Malaysia.

Christians in Peninsula Malaysia and Sabah should know that the said rally is the first of its kind in Sarawak and also the first time that the normally conservative and passive Christian community has publicly voiced its unhappiness with the government.

I am advised that similar rallies will be held throughout Sarawak at later dates.

It is clear that the Christians of Sarawak who make up a strong 45% (?) of the state population are confronting any attempts by outsiders and racist in Peninsula Malaysia against their faith and beliefs!

Those who have ears, please hear, those with eyes please see and those who have hearts please feel in the interest of good governance, transparency, ethics, having zero tolerance for racism and the cultivation of anti Christian spirit!

CONSUMERIST – RADIATION LEVELS ABOVE SAFE LIMITS IN 11 JAPANESE PRODUCE?

‘Meanwhile, will Malaysia see a dumping of contaminated food and vehicles in the near future?

Will Malaysia be bold and brave to now say – No to Nuclear Energy here or will the perverse greed and culture of another billion ringgit construction project, its costs over-runs, the manipulation of the lobbyists, construction predators, industry parasites, and alleged kickbacks to politicians and cronies and ultimately when tragedy strikes the billions spent to mitigate be again our culture of governance?

Questions, Questions, Questions?’ – Dr Jacob George

CONSUMERIST – RADIATION LEVELS ABOVE SAFETY LIMIT IN 11 JAPANESE PRODUCE?

It is confirmed that the more than 11 vegetable produce are ‘extremely above the permitted radiation levels’ warn health authorities in Japan!

At the same time Agricultural production and exports by Japan, including premium “wagyu” beef and rice, may also have been threatened by radioactive contamination as the nation struggles to stem pollution from the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant.

Interestingly, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has asked each prefectural governor to start testing agricultural and marine products along with drinking water for possible contamination in order to keep tainted food including grains, milk, vegetables, meat and eggs from the market, said Kumiko Tanaka at the ministry’s policy planning and communication division.

The action highlights the severity of the radiation leak from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi power station; about 220 kilometers (140 miles) north of Tokyo, after Japan’s biggest earthquake on record and tsunami hit the area on March 11. Workers resumed dousing the damaged reactor structures with seawater from fire trucks today, as they try to stem radioactive pollution from the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl.

What I cannot understand is why is the entire operation still being managed by a utility company instead of the International Atomic Energy Commission?

Meanwhile, will Malaysia see a dumping of contaminated food and vehicles in the near future?

Will Malaysia be bold and brave to now say – No to Nuclear Energy here or will the perverse greed and culture of another billion ringgit construction project, its costs over-runs, the manipulation of the lobbyists, construction predators, industry parasites, and alleged kickbacks to politicians and cronies and ultimately when tragedy strikes the billions spent to mitigate be again our culture of governance?

CONSUMERIST – FAST TRACK SEX TAPE INVESTIGATIONS IGP URGED!

‘I for one am not bothered what one’s sexual preferences are as it is one’s own business and between an individual, their spouse and their religious faith!

After all there are many who do worst things in this world than the ‘sex thingy’ like rape, theft, corruption, political killings, incest, perjury, fabrication, betrayals, ‘stealing another man’s wife’ and think by going on a pilgrimage helps cleanse one-self of the despicable things one does!’- Dr Jacob George

 

CONSUMERIST – FAST TRACK SEX TAPE INVESTIGATIONS IGP URGED!

You do not have to be a lawyer to know that in the present Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) there is enough statutes to depend on to throw this entire saga wide open in view of public interest!

And we should in all fairness!

First, there was possession of pornography, secondly the party (s) facilitated an audience, thirdly there was certainly ‘political blackmail’ – a threat issued by an individual (s) demanding the alleged actor in the video and (sic) his wife to step down from political office failing which the said individual (s) would distribute a pornography to the wider Malaysian audience!

Was the Cinematography Act violated?

Just for starters was any Malaysian statutes broken?

One needs to also ask for clarification based on present Malaysian law is the screening of a porn video for a group of people an offense?

Let us be very careful here if we do not want the world to laugh at the way we manipulate or interpret the statutes!

The last time I looked at Section 292 it clearly states:

Any pornographic or obscene material publicly exhibited is classified as a penal code offence under section 292.

Section 292(a) of the Penal Code, “Whoever – sells, lets to hire, distributes, publicly exhibits or in any manner puts into circulation, or for purposes of sale, hire, distribution, public exhibition or circulation make, produces or has in possession any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, drawing, painting representation or figure or any other obscene object whatsoever; or (b)… … shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extent to three years, or with fine, or with both”.

I would also be interested to know the name of the said hotel, its owners and who aided, abetted, financed and facilitated this entire ‘sting operation!’

So far it strongly smells of entrapment and based on the reaction ‘on the streets’ and in ‘the cyber world’ it is one that the authors of this exposure already lost!

They should have handed in the said tape to the Police!

The lawful authority here are the Police!

Instead they had ‘their own agenda?’

I would want to know if at the said hotel this was the standard practice all hotel rooms having inbuilt cameras to spy and tape its customers sexual exploits if so we could have many more individuals who may have had been victims whose privacy was violated!

But if that was not it does not take a rocket scientist to concur that this all well planned and well financed!

Personally, let us not be so excited or self-righteous, if we allow this culture of entrapment, violation of one’s privacy, intimidation to continue – it could be ‘anyone of us the next time’ when our privacy is violated, perhaps even in the privacy of our homes as one poor politician had experienced!

Just because it allegedly involves one’s ‘political nemesis’ does not make this intrusion legal!

Unless, it shows without doubt that this revelation was in the public interest to expose someone who has misled the audience in Malaysia on his religious credentials!

Personally, I for one am not bothered what one’s sexual preferences are as it is one’s own business and between an individual, their spouse and their religious faith!

For example I am advised the Australian Prime Minister is not married to her partner but still lives in the nation’s official house, travels all over the world and if need be meeting world leaders with her ‘partner’ not husband!

I was shocked but it is strange and the Australians I am advised are coming to grips with this political reality!

Whether the founding fathers of Australia may have accepted it or others with a higher sense of religious and moral calling is anyone’s guess!

After all there are many who do worst things in this world than the ‘sex thingy’ like rape, theft, corruption, political killings, incest, perjury, fabrication, betrayals, adultery, fornication and think by going on a pilgrimage helps cleanse one-self of the despicable things one does!

We have had many such cases in particular, in the United States where they had to stand down from public office and this included senior politicians and even high powered Evangelistic Preachers who raked in millions over cable TV!

First, let us get the facts straight in this ‘Datuk T-gate Saga!’

The modus operandi was dubious and criminal in nature!

Yes, the alleged victim should make a police report soonest!

The Police should investigate all.
But let the investigation first center on the individual (s) who were behind this exposure, the hotel who allowed the recording and the posh other which facilitated the screening of a pornographic material, the owners and operators of both hotels and in particular where this alleged tryst took place!

We need to know what their motivations were and still are?

In the meantime, locals, foreigners and tourists coming to Malaysia may need to be reassured that the hotel rooms they occupy does not have cameras recording personal and private moments?

In the meantime, I appeal to the IGP to fast track investigations in view public interest!
