Consumerist: MH370 – An Accident – My foot it was DCA!

Dato Jacob George

‘So, what is the difference in millions concluding that this was a conspiracy and cover up at the highest level because of a particular nation’s national security interest which justifies collateral damage being accepted to the official version concluding that MH370 had an accident?

My advice – go do the right thing – just continue with the search for tangible evidence of the wreckage, recover something and if after having irrefutable evidence examining the wreckage – go state DCA – that it was an accident – till then shut the **** up!

I am being polite here!’

Consumerist: MH370 – An Accident – My foot it was DCA!

I am a trained lawyer with a track record of 24 years and a further track record of being a Consumer Advocate with a track record of over 39 years!

So my take has always being – if a person does not have concrete irrefutable evidence, one should not make a statement of any kind that brings finality to an issue that has huge impact in the lives of individuals!

So I find it repulsive the Malaysian Civil Aviation Department (DCA) formal declaration on Thursday declaring last year’s disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 an accident, saying all 239 people on board are presumed dead.

For those catching on – that jet went missing on March 8, 2014!

I find it hard to believe “official versions” from the time, I was 5 years of age and told that a single gunman shot and killed JFK in 1963!

Got my drift?

“And that every credible lead and all available data had been analyzed, but search teams have failed to locate the plane” – really that simplistic an answer?

Of course with that statement – legally, the way is paved for compensation payments to relatives of the victims.

But hello, not everyone is thinking of the compensation, Mr DCA!

And the fact remains – that many family members of the missing passengers refuse to accept the official position and version that the plane was lost.

Flight MH370 is presumed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean near the coast of Western Australia. The plane was on the way from the Malaysian capital city, Kuala Lumpur, to Beijing, the capital of China.

It is a fact that no confirmed debris has ever been found.

That itself is a story in this age and time with the kind of technology we have?

I am not surprised that hurt and anxious relatives of the passengers of the missing flight MH370 have reacted furiously to the Malaysian government’s formal announcement that all 239 people on board were dead after the aircraft suffered an accident.

Like other I refuse to accept the official version of events – that the plane crashed somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean after inexplicably changing directions from one end going east to the opposite side – west?

But I fully agree one common aspect of this rather sad incident that breaks my heart as well, having lost many dear friends!

The authorities and the governments had been giving silly statements from the onset thinking we are all a bunch of idiots!

Is it easy to conclude without a shred of evidence that a MAS jet carrying 239 people has been declared as an accident in accordance with standard annexes 12 and 13 to the Chicago Convention?

Yes, I ask that DCA chief – how without any tangible evidence of a crash, he can claim that there was an accident?

Not an hijack because of what was speculated it had in its cargo hold?

No?

So, what is the difference in millions concluding that this was a conspiracy and cover up at the highest level because of a particular nation’s national security interest which justifies collateral damage being accepted to the official version concluding that MH370 had an accident?

My advice – go do the right thing – just continue with the search for tangible evidence of the wreckage, recover something and if after having irrefutable evidence examining the wreckage – go state DCA – that it was an accident – till then shut the **** up!

I am being polite here being brought up by good Anglican church going parents!

                           

Consumerist: International Consumers Beware: Nepal Shambala Hotel Overcharged Malaysian Client By RM20,000.00 In Major Credit Card Fiasco! (Part 1)

Dato Jacob George

‘Second, when you have acknowledged there is a major cork up where a simple bill of NRS of 51,501.00 can irresponsibly become NRS 525010.00 !

Where did they get this great training for such creative billing and account keeping!

In the meantime I have made an official complaint to my bankers.

My colleagues in Nepal are contacting the Nepal Central Bank to alert them of this total cork up so that heads will roll in accountability!’

Consumerist: International Consumers Beware: Nepal Shambala Hotel Overcharged Malaysian Client By RM20,000.00 In Major Credit Card Fiasco! (Part 1)

We agree no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes at one time or another!

But the point is, when a mistake is found and this is colossal – a major cork up – you immediately rectify at great speed as not to upset or cause anxiety to the client – the innocent consumer!

More so, if the client is a regular and bring huge business to your hotel!

So imagine my horror, when I found that the hotel has overcharged my Credit Card by adding another zero and overcharging me – yes – me – Malaysia’s lead consumerist and you get no higher profile than that!

Not a few dollars but RM20,000.00!

How can a hotel make such a colossal mistake?

They must be stupid – perhaps not trained – perhaps simply irresponsible! Maybe they are all a bunch of idiots?

But is it not a noble principle to do one’s best to rectify when they have already acknowledged their mistake?

Not in Nepal’s Shambala Hotel’s case – they, the front desk, their accountants and finance give you bullshit and a run around thinking we are all stupid!

They tell us it takes time to rectify between a week to 10 days!

Why?

You overcharged irresponsibly. That is in itself a criminal act whether you have the ‘mens rea’ or not and at best it is incompetence!

Second, when you have acknowledged there is a major cork up where a simple bill of NRS of 51,501.00 can irresponsibly become NRS 525010.00 !

Where did they get this great training for such creative billing and account keeping!

In the meantime I have made an official complaint to my bankers.

My colleagues in Nepal are contacting the Nepal Central Bank to alert them of this total cork up so that heads will roll in accountability!

I intend to complain to the Nepal government, if this is not immediately rectified!

So if you are visiting Nepal and staying in their hotels please do check your credit card slips and hope you have not become a victim like me and hearing excuses after excuses from their hotel management idiots!

Instead of immediately rectifying the situation by crediting my account and settling they are playing for time and screwing up my life!

Now who is going to pay the interest and finance chargers – Shambala hotel or the Nepali government?

                           

Consumerist: Manpower Predators Waging War A Losing Battle Against Anti-Corruption Ambassadors!

Dato Jacob George

‘I have briefed several senior ministers in the Malaysian cabinet and we are aligned to this new approach and if these undesirable parties want a fight they will have a war where they will be blacklisted from working in Malaysia directly, indirectly or through proxies!’

Consumerist: Manpower Predators Waging War A Losing Battle Against Anti-Corruption Ambassadors!

They cannot take it when they are sidelined.

They think the poor marginalized and exploited owe them an existence by paying these undesirable elements, basically blood suckers in the manpower industry huge perverse commissions that allows these manpower agents to live bourgeoisie lifestyles – luxury SUVs, huge mansions, property in foreign land and deep pockets!

So when they are sidelines they fight back not with facts, figures go on record but by clandestine, covert operations shrouded in lies, fabrication and erroneous frivolous allegations.

But the truth is – the ground has shifted, poor marginalized workers have an alternative today to say No to these exploitation and abuse – the slavish bonding of worker and families into bondage!

And we are making certain of this – and – ready to fight to the very end.

I have briefed several senior ministers in the Malaysian cabinet and we are aligned to this new approach and if these undesirable parties want a fight they will have a war where they will be blacklisted from working in Malaysia directly, indirectly or through proxies!

Malaysian ministers fully support zero tolerance for exploitation of workers!

We have the names of those who are carrying out a vicious defamatory campaign against us!

We know the names of their companies and of their associates here in Qatar, Doha, Saudi, Japan, Taiwan and Kuwait!

I am thankful to our ministers who have agreed to also advice foreign counterparts in these countries to blacklist these criminals masquerading as manpower agents!

IF these is what they what so be it!

It is their call – accept this new order – zero tolerance to exploitation of workers and corruption or lose your opportunity in Malaysia!

It is your call!

You picked this fight with me!

                           

Consumerist: Fascist & Racist NGOs Told – Uphold Dignity & Respect For All Religions – Don’t Be Selective!

Dato Jacob George

My contention is that if everyone irrespective of one’s religious persuasion takes this as a holy order in life, with no race and religious baiting, uttering seditious outbursts against another, spearheading the superiority of one’s religion, conducting covert exercises to maim, cripple the religious lives of others and threatening the minority rights of other races and religions – the world will be a better place!’

Consumerist: Fascist & Racist NGOs Told – Uphold Dignity & Respect For All Religions – Don’t Be Selective!

According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, freedom of expression is the right of every individual to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

As a consumer advocate with more than 41 years of track record, I support and protect those who speak up and express their opinions openly and freely around the world especially those who uphold and defend dignity and human rights issues!

And among them those like :

1. journalists exposing human rights violations
2. community workers teaching human rights education
3. trade unionists defending workers’ rights
4. women working for the promotion of reproductive rights, upholding gender issues and against all forms of violence against women
5. Consumerist & Environmentalists highlighting lifestyle and quality of life issues, the impact of development projects on indigenous peoples land rights.
6. issues pertaining to the marginalization of communities, racism, fascism, religious baiting, new forms of apartheid, race and religious genocide

On one Wednesday morning, two gunmen went into the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s office wielding Kalashnikovs and rocket-propelled grenades. Within minutes, 12 people were reported killed.

This was not the only incident as in 2005 a Danish publication published cartoons depicting a Prophet which resulted in riots, looting and assassination attempts in Denmark and around the world.

There was massive collateral damage and among innocents!

But did the western media and its backers learn any lessons?

We are told there is nothing sacred and one can lambasts, attacks and lampoons all religions, all identity groups, minorities and majorities!

When one takes that stand, it is sad and it plays into the hands of those fanatics and racists waiting anxiously to wreck massive collateral damage and mischief all around the world not against the political and well trained groups but against the innocent, defenseless and the common men and women who go about minding their own business hurting no one!

This is why I sincerely support the contention put forward by Pope Francis that freedom of expression has limits!

Pontiff defends freedom of speech en route to the Philippines and says ‘you cannot insult the faith of others’

Pope Francis has said there are limits to freedom of expression and that following the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris “one cannot make fun of faith”.

On a plane from Sri Lanka to the Philippines, the largest Catholic majority country in Asia, the pope said freedom of speech was a fundamental human right but “every religion has its dignity”.

Asked about the attack that killed 12 people at the offices of Charlie Hebdo – targeted because it had printed depictions of the prophet Muhammad – he said: “One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith.

“There is a limit. Every religion has its dignity … in freedom of expression there are limits.”

He gestured to Alberto Gasparri, who organizes papal trips and was standing by his side, and added: “If my good friend Dr Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s normal. It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

Cautioning against provocation he said the right to liberty of expression came with the obligation to speak for “the common good”.

My contention is that if everyone irrespective of one’s religious persuasion takes this as a holy order in life, with no race and religious baiting, uttering seditious outbursts against another, spearheading the superiority of one’s religion, conducting covert exercises to maim, cripple the religious lives of others and threatening the minority rights of other races and religions – the world will be a better place!

                           

Consumerist: Fascists & Racist NGOs New Play Ground – Terrorizing Malaysian Minorities?

Dato Jacob George

‘These are the new terrorists who create all forms of terror in the hearts and minds of minority Malaysians in the peninsula and the majority in Sabah and Sarawak thinking they can subdue us by their threats, arrogance, seditious utterances, stupidity, warped logic, abuse of Police reports, and a world view which shows how stupid they are!’

Consumerist: Fascists & Racist NGOs New Play Ground – Terrorizing Malaysian Minorities?

A bunch of absolute idiots and racists ignorant of International law, United Nations ordinances and in defiance of Article 152 of the Federal Constitution, demanded that the Catholic weekly Herald stop using the Malay language in its publication.

These morons now extended the judgment of the recent court proceedings by unilaterally claiming that the Herald’s continuous use of the Malay language would be in defiance of the Federal Court which earlier this week did not allow the Catholic Church’s Application for the Court to revise its earlier decision on its case against the Home Minister on a directive issued on security grounds.

Where they got that particular notion is beyond any one’s understanding except that it is now clear that they intend to continue race, religious and language baiting, provoking minorities and creating unnecessary anxiety, tension and muddy race relations in Malaysia!

The shocking irony is these morons are urging the police to arrest and take strict action on areas the Federal Court made no ruling except to turn down a revision bid by the Catholic paper.

These morons also have the audacity to call others – “the stubborn people” urging them to acquaint themselves with the country’s laws and the Rukunegara.

Hello – now who are those ignorant not only of the Federal Constitution, the Rukunegara and the laws of the land?

Who are the one’s ignorant of the International agreements that involve Sabah and Sarawak?

More so when it can now be argued that the Federal Court decision effectively means that Article 11 of the constitution guaranteeing freedom of religion has been amended with the proviso that such freedom is subject to such conditions and restrictions as may be imposed by the government as it deems fit.

And this proviso applies, of course, to all states including Sabah and Sarawak, as the Court of Appeal judgment on Oct 14, 2013, did not specify any state to be excluded from its ruling on the prohibitions!

Would it not mean then for Sabah and Sarawak that the courts have violated a fundamental term of the Malaysia Agreement under which the people in Sabah and Sarawak are guaranteed full freedom to practice their religion.

The state governments as well as the people of Sabah and Sarawak must now consider what action they must take to protect their interests, now that the legal foundation upon which they had merged with Malaya at the formation of the Federation of Malaysia in 1963 has been undermined unilaterally without their concurrence.

All Malaysians must realize that such de facto amendment to Article 11 also means that religious freedom as a fundamental right for every person, as agreed upon through consensus by all racial and religious groups at the founding of the nation, has been taken away.

This applies to all Malaysians – alike, as Article 11 does not stipulate such freedom to be confined to a specific religion.

So, all Malaysians, must now reflect on the ramification of the current court decision in respect of the loss of their religious rights, and ponder as to what they can do to recover it, if so desired.

Minorities may want to take this to the United Nations and the ICJ for deliberations quickly before more rights are trampled by these terrorists, fascist and racists NGO actors!

IF we do not these new terrorists masquerading as NGOs who create all forms of terror in the hearts and minds of minority Malaysians in the peninsula and the majority in Sabah and Sarawak would think they can subdue us by their threats, arrogance, seditious utterances, stupidity, warped logic, abuse of Police reports, and a world view which shows how stupid they are!
