GOOD MORNING AND HOW IS THE MIND TODAY? ELAINE BING'S 'UNMAKING OF THE TORTURER', MY TORTURE BY MODERNIST UNIVERSALITY AND GEORGE ORWELL'S '1984' In her book titled 'UNMAKING OF THE TORTURER', Elaine Bing quotes 'Harold', an ex-security policeman and torturer explaining his actions at the time as follows: "For me, for me it was, it was a feeling that I was in control of the situation and that I wanted to wipe terrorists from the face of the earth." I have encountered men like 'Harold' before on the receiving end of torture, and what was even more disturbing than their gratuitous acts of sadistic violence, was the idealistic notions of presumed universality that informed the delusions with which they justified their actions. The worse ones were those who could reason about their justifications logically with an almost academic detachment from what their hands were doing. Some time in 1987, while detained under Section 29 of the then Internal Security Act, I had the misfortune to be interrogated by a Securi ...
Oh my, I had no idea this organization even existed. Wikipedia has a full history if anyone is interested. Not me,just surprised. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "American Communists" redirects here. For other uses, see Communist Party USA (disambiguation). Coordinates: 40°44′40.8″N 73°59′48.5″W The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is a communist political party in the United States.[5] It is the largest communist party in the country. Established in 1919, it has a long, complex history that is closely related to the histories of similar communist parties worldwide and the U.S. labor movement. For the first half of the 20th century, the Communist Party was a highly influential force in various struggles for democratic rights. It played a prominent role in the U.S. labor movement from the 1920s through the 1940s, having a major hand in founding most of the country's first industrial unions (which would later use the McCarran Internal Security Act to expel their Communist members) while also beco ...
Is Lee Kuan Yew's version of our history accurate or even truthful? Dr Poh Soo Kai, who was the Assistant Secretary-General of the PAP breakaway faction, the Barisan Sosialis, writes: "To date, we have received only a non-reply, in the form of the re-printing of the Battle for Merger, the Cold War diatribe of the day. The government has to content itself with targeting school children and blitzing the mainstream media, using the same language and materials from half a century ago, and resurrecting the failed ‘merger’, implicitly to justify Coldstore, though the event itself is not ever mentioned. The impression given is that with the radio talks the PAP won the hearts and minds of the people. If that had been the case, Coldstore would have been unnecessary." Dr Poh was imprisoned twice under Singapore’s Internal Security Act (ISA) which allows for detention without trial for a total of 17 years by Singapore’s PAP government.
Although he had served a day's jail, Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali has accepted it in good faith, he said after his conviction for contempt of court was set aside by the Court of Appeal Wednesday. "Thanks to God, because all the while I knew I was not guilty," he told reporters after the court's verdict. Ibrahim said he had been held twice under the Internal Security Act. A three-member panel led by Justice Datuk Abdul Wahab Patail allowed Ibrahim's appeal to overturn the decision of the High Court which had found him guilty of contempt of court over a website post against retired High Court judge Datuk V.T. Singham who presided over a defamation suit brought by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim against Utusan Melayu and its editor-in-chief Datuk Abdul Aziz Ishak. The other two judges on the Court of Appeal panel were Justices Datuk David Wong Dak Wah and Datuk Varghese George Varughese. The unanimous judgement was written by Justice Varghese and was read out in open court by deputy registr ...

Dato' Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (born January 4, 1953 in Bagan Datoh) is a Malaysian politician and is currently the Minister of Home Affairs in the Barisan Nasional coalition government of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Bagan Datoh constituency in Perak. Before this, he was the Defence Minister of Malaysia. He is a member of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO). Early in his political career, Zahid was a Senator and chairman of Bank Simpanan Nasional before becoming the head of UMNO's youth wing. In 1998, Zahid spoke out against Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, calling for an end to cronyism and nepotism in the Malaysian government. Zahid, seen as an ally of deposed Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, was subsequently arrested and held in prison under the Internal Security Act. However, in 1999, Zahid was welcomed back into the UMNO fold, stating that Anwar had put him up to raising allegations of cronyism and nepotism and alleg ...

"Karpal Singh was a true humanitarian. We will miss him." IN MEMORY: KARPAL SINGH, TRUE HUMANITARIAN BY LEE MIN CHOON This has nothing to do with the Malay Bible. But I can’t help but feel a sense of loss with the passing of colleague at the Bar and friend, Karpal Singh. So, here’s how I remember him. It must have been around 1985 when I was helping a convict on death row who had become a Christian while in prison. Liew Weng Seng was sentenced to death under the Internal Security Act for possession of a firearm. At the Federal Court, Liew was unrepresented and proceeded to tell the court that he was guilty and did not wish to appeal his death sentence. When court was adjourned, his family tried to pass him a bible but was prevented from doing so by the prison warders. A commotion ensued and made the news the next day. When I read the report, I thought, “Hey, this guy is a Christian and he had just told the court to go ahead to hang him.” I called the office at Pudu Prison and arranged for an appoi ...
Zaid losing the plot By Josh Hong Apr 4, 2014 Acutely aware that Pakatan Rakyat is full of rotten apples and characters obsessed with ambitions, I have long remained silent despite the series of public spats between the opposition camp and Zaid Ibrahim since they fell out. Sometimes, the *** for *** between the two are so trivial and ridiculous that one wonders how Malaysians have been able to put up with childish politicians for so long. Having said that, the former law minister did win my respect when he resigned from the government in protest at the blatant use of the Internal Security Act back in September 2009. But that was then, and this is now. How sad it is to know that the once feisty leader is fast becoming a national joke himself. Everyone knows nothing has gone right since Najib Abdul Razak took over the helm from Abdullah Ahmad Badawi exactly five years ago. Rampant corruption continues to plague the economy, and innocent lives still end in police custody. Racist sentiments are on the rise, . ...
Press Trust Of India Kuala Lumpur, December 08, 2007 First Published: 15:04 IST(8/12/2007) Last Updated: 17:51 IST(8/12/2007) Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has warned the ethnic Indians that they could be held under the Internal Security Act if their actions threatened national interest and asked the police to monitor their movements. Abdullah's warning came following allegations by authorities that the members of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), which is spearheading the anti-government agitation against the alleged marginalisation of ethnic Indians, are linked with "terrorists" groups including LTTE. "My instructions to the police is that the group should be monitored. Internal Security Act is an option. I will decide when the time is right. If they are deemed (as a threat to national security) we will know what to do," the New Straits Times quoted Abdullah as saying. ISA allows for years of detention without trial. Abdullah, who is also the Internal Security minister, said he w ...
Will the police (ever) offer the same to PDRC supporters? Prayuth offers to protect UDD rallies (Bangkok Post excerpts, 26 Mar. 2014) Army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha has proposed protection measures for the red-shirts if they hold a rally in Bangkok or in areas under the Internal Security Act. The army commander-in-chief forwarded the plan to the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (Capo) on Wednesday. Checkpoints could be set up for the safety of United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) members in these areas, he said. Soldiers would give equal protection to the red-shirts and their rivals, the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). Red-shirt leaders have accused the armed forces of taking side with the anti-government group, although military leaders repeatedly insisted they are impartial. Gen Prayuth was clearly miffed after new UDD secretary-general, Nattawut Saikuar, said he was on the PDRC's list of likely candidates for interim Prime Minister in the event caretaker ...
Lee Kuan Yew dies so what? Even after the death of LKY,the Internal Security Act,Public Order Act,Trade Unions Act,Singapore Broadcasting Act,Newspapers and Printing Presses Act,Public Entertainment and Meetings Act and all other unjust laws in Singapore will still remain. And let us not forget Taiwan did not democratise immediately after Chiang Kai Shek’s death in 1975.His son,Chiang Ching Kuo took over 3 years later.South Korea also did not democratise after the assasination of Park Chung Hee in 1979.Remember Chun Doo Hwan and the Kwangju Masscare in 1980? And do we need to say more about North Korea and the Kims? What we need for ourselves is really perseverance. Amen and God bless.

It is enforced now ? Enforcement of special security law in BKK and nearby provinces extended December 25, 2013 11:25 am The Cabinet on Wednesday resolved to extend the enforcement of Internal Security Act in Bangkok and three other adjacent provinces for 60 days, citing security reason. The National Security Council (NSC) proposed the extension. NSC secretary general Paradorn Pattanatabut said the extension of the special security law, which will initially end on December 31, was because of the the prolonged protest. The extension which will end on March 1 next year will cover the entire capital city, Nonthaburi and parts of Samut Prakarn and Pathum Thani provinces.

M. K. Stalin was born in Madras, now Chennai. His political career began when as a 14-year old, he campaigned in the 1967 elections. In 1973 Stalin was elected to the General committee of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK). He came to limelight when he was jailed under Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) for protesting against the Emergency.[4] Stalin has been elected four times to the Tamil Nadu Assembly since 1989 from the Thousand Lights constituency in Chennai. Stalin became the city's first directly elected Mayor in 1996.[5] Stalin was reelected Mayor in 2001,[6] however, the then Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa enacted the Tamil Nadu Municipal Laws (Amendment) Act, 2002, a law that prevents a person from holding two elected posts in the government. This law was applied retrospectively to Stalin's case (he was elected MLA) in a move widely seen as aimed at removing as Chennai's Mayor.[7] However the Madras High Court struck down the law stating that legislative bodies were not “prevented” ...

BREAKING: Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has announced the decision to impose the Internal Security Act in the entire capital.
Thai PM extends Internal Security Act Thai PM Yingluck Shinawatra extended on Monday an Internal Security Act to cover more areas of the capital, Bangkok, Nonthaburi just to the north, and districts to the east including where Bangkok's main airport is located. Yingluck, addressing the nation on television on a day anti-government protesters swarmed into, or around, state buildings in a bid to bring down her government, said the security act was being extended because of "ongoing events". The act allows authorities to impose curfews, operate checkpoints, restrict movements of protesters and act fast if rallies get out of hand.
RELEASED MALAY DETAINEE STANDS BY HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH Life can be difficult anywhere, but when one is both a Christian and a Malay in Malaysia, it can become virtually impossible. Just ask 27-year-old Yeshua Jamaluddin bin Othman. His story begins about 10 years ago when Yeshua was working in a factory in Singapore and decided to become a follower of Christ. He then returned to Malaysia to join a group of Christians in the First Baptist Church in Petaling Jaya, where he eventually became pastor. On Oct. 27, 1987, he was arrested and detained by police, and two months later, under provisions of the Internal Security Act (ISA), was taken to Kamunting Detention Centre, where he was detained without trial for two years. The Federal Constitution of Malaysia enables Parliament to legislate against subversion, violence, and acts and crimes prejudical to public security. On Oct. 4, Yeshua´s lawyer, Lee Ming Choon, applied for a writ of habeas corpus (requiring that Yeshua be brought to court for a hearing), agai ...

PCA - tyranny or ignorance of the majority? • Mohamed Hanipa Maidin • 7:41AM Oct 9, 2013 MP SPEAKS The supremacy of the majority is a rudimentary principle in democracy. But such a basic principle also breeds many negative repercussions. Tyranny of the majority is one of these. Draconian amendments were incorporated into the Prevention of Crime Act 1959 (PCA) in the Dewan Rakyat last week. I would say this was made possible because we have a majority of political *** in our Parliament. Listening to many BN members of parliament debating the amendments, I was convinced that the majority failed even to understand the basic principle of rule of law. The PCA (Amendment and Extension) Bill is the Internal Security Act (ISA) wearing a different uniform. It allows for preventive detention. It introduces a clause ousting the jurisdiction of any court of law to question the power of the Inquiry Board. Yes, the minister's power to issue detention orders is no longer there. But it does not mean such power is ...
Enforcement of the Internal Security Act in Three Districts of Bangkok Extended via
19 October, 1977 Following a Cabinet decision, taken on 18 October 1977, the government, by proclamation under the Internal Security Act, declared 19 organisations unlawful and apprehended around 70 leading Africans. A number of people were placed under restriction, including Donald Woods who was editor-in-chief at the Daily Dispatch. It also closed down the daily newspaper 'The World' and its associated 'Weekend World'. The actions provoked worldwide shock and protest. The Minister of Justice issued a statement justifying these draconian measures, and declared the organisations concerned a threat to law and order. The organisations affected included the Black People's Convention (BPC), the South African Student's Organisation (SASO), the Black Parent's Association (BPA),the Black Women's Federation and the Union of Black Journalists. Person's arrested included 8 members of the Soweto 'Committee of 10'. The editor of The World and Weekend World, Percy Qoboza and his deputy, Aggrey Klaaste were arrested b ...
Will Najib lead BN into GE14? QUESTION TIME In the wee hours of yesterday as most of Malaysia slept, the amendments to the Prevention of Crime Act were pushed through. This brought back the dreaded provision of detention without trial that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had rolled back when he dismantled the Internal Security Act and the Emergency Ordinance. With that, out through the window went Najib’s self-proclaimed programme to promote civil society and get rid of legislation which curtailed human rights in order to restore the same to all Malaysians. Najib had made this loosening up of tight legislation a part of his election campaign to try and capture some of the more liberal minded, non-bumiputera, and urban voters by at least giving the impression that the nation was moving towards greater freedom. Along with this Najib sought to become a Prime Minister for all Malaysians with his 1Malaysia programmes and efforts to get the non-Malay votes by targeting them specifically in ad campaigns and t ...

Malaysia faces backlash over push for tough new laws: Kuala Lumpur, Sept 30 — Malaysia's bid to bring back detention without trial and toughen a range of other laws has triggered a backlash from civil society groups who call the move politically motivated and a major step back for human rights. Home Minister Zahid Hamidi was due to debate the proposed changes in parliament today, justifying them as necessary to battle a rise in violent crime, as the government tries to push through the controversial bills this week. The proposed amendments appear to mark a reversal of Prime Minister Najib Razak's steps in recent years to repeal draconian security laws, such as the Internal Security Act (ISA), that were sometimes used to jail government critics. They come weeks ahead of a ruling party assembly where Najib faces pressure to make concessions to hard liners, following a weak election result in May that cut the ruling coalition's majority, undermining the Prime Minister's moderate agenda. “After the electi ...

Negotiations with Joe, he has replied. Here's a summary. When I accused his article of being false when he critised our Government, he had replied this: "If you point out to me, which sentence is false, i will show you the evidence, of how it is true. :) But then you will not do it, because your fear of the truth, and of the Internal Security Act, will keep your head, deeply entrenched inside the sand. :3" This, I found a list of information he typed, and ask for evidence. However, he did not find the evidence, and replied this " Hi Stand up for facts, Thanks for the long reply. Let me reply simply. It is clear from your replies, that you have not made the effort to research for those points you have raised. Because if you have, then it can be easily gotten via the Internet and also via reliable sources.

April 28th 1976 is remembered as a black day in the history of Indian democracy. The reason for this were to be found in the election of Mrs Indira Gandhi (the then prime minster of India) which had been held to be invalid by the Allahabad High Court. In her desire to stick to the chair of prime minster she chose to declare a national emergency on 25th June 1975 on the ground of ‘internal threat’ to the security of India. As a result of the emergency censorship was imposed on the press on 25th June 1975 itself. On 5th August 1975, Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) was approved by the parliament and a number of opposition leaders were detained under this law. Any person who was considered to be a political threat or who could raise the voice of opposition was detained without trial under the MISA. According to Amnesty International, 1, 40,000 persons were arrested without trial during the emergency period.
Long Live COSAS Long Live! I remember participating in a series of discussions with Billy Masetlha, Super Moloi, the late Roller Masinga and the late Tsanki Modiakgotla, on the need to found a Congress Allied students organization. This was in late 1978 at the Modderbee Prison, where we were held under the apartheid Section 10 of the Internal Security Act. Upon my release in late November of the same year, I was banned and banished to the magisterial district of Bethlehem, while the Cde Billy and the other comrades we released to their original places in Soweto, where they went on to ultimately implement the product of our discussion.
Internal Security Act (Malaysia) Preventive detention was first implemented in Malaya by the British in 1948 to combat the armed insurgency of the Malayan Communist Party during the Malayan Emergency. The Emergency Regulations Ordinance 1948 was enacted by the British High Commissioner Sir Edward Gent. It allowed the detention of persons for a period not exceeding one year. This ordinance targeted at acts of violence and only imposed temporary detention. The Malayan Emergency ended in 1960 and the ordinance was repealed. However, preventive detention was retained and remains a feature of Malaysian law today. In 1960, the government passed the Internal Security Act (ISA) under the authority granted by Article 149 the Malaysian Constitution. The stated purpose of the ISA was to deter communist activity in Malaysia during the Malayan Emergency and afterwards. The first Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman, defined the purpose of the act as to "be used solely against the communists...My Cabinet coll ...

Subject: Sabah- UMNO and the Abu Sayyaf Group] F Date: Thu, 7 Mar 2013 07:25:00 +0800 Sunday, 03 March 2013 19:18 posted by EM This is what UMNO so called patriotic. Who they are trying to bluff. To them PM is every thing, everything is POWER and MONEY. We should know who to vote for by now in the coming general election. Please tell all the kampong folks. On Monday, 26 February 2007, the Parliament Select Committee heard the testimonies of various people who had once been detained under Malaysia's draconian and dreaded Internal Security Act (ISA).These people, who used to walk in the corridors of power, were detained under the ISA because they once worked for the government and their government job was to 'import' an estimated one million Muslims from the countries neighbouring Sabah and issue them with Malaysian identity cards so as to flood the state with Muslim voters. The specific purpose of this clandestine operation was to dilute the Christian voters in Sabah so that Umno could topple the Christi . ...
ONE OF THE EXCUSE Spike in Selangor crime due to EO repeal, says deputy CPO By Ida Lim / Malaysian Insider June 30, 2012 Kuala Lumpur, June 30 — Selangor’s deputy police chief today suggested the repeal of the Emergency Ordinance (EO) may have caused a hike in the state’s crime rate due to the number of suspects who could have returned to a life of felony instead of reforming. Last September, the federal government repealed the controversial EO, a security law introduced after the 1969 race riots that allowed the authorities to detain a person without trial for up to two years, similar to the much-criticised Internal Security Act (ISA). It was usually used on hardcore gangsters but had also been used on children who were held in the same detention facilities as adults. “But we see there is a rise in crime (recently) because they’ve been in (detention) for too long, they need ‘exercise’, so they come out and immediately they carry out their activities,” Selangor’s deputy commissioner of p ...
Mas Selamat bin Kastari Mas Selamat bin Kastari (born 23 January 1961), an Indonesian-born Singaporean, was for more than a year Singapore's most-wanted fugitive after escaping from detention on 27 February 2008. The search for him has been described as the largest manhunt ever launched in Singapore. He was eventually recaptured in Skudai, Malaysia, on April 1, 2009, over a year after his escape, and has since been returned to Singapore. In January 2006, Mas Selamat was arrested by Indonesian anti-terror squads in Java and deported to Singapore. He was suspected of plotting to bomb Singapore Changi Airport in 2002, and, according to the Singapore Police Force, he had initially planned to do so by crashing a plane into the airport. However, Mas Selamat has never been formally charged with any terrorism-related offences; instead, he was detained under the country's Internal Security Act, which allows indefinite detention without trial.
Dr M brewing recipe for disaster If there is anyone who is gearing up for an 'Arab Spring', it is none other than Mahathir himself, going by his anti-Malaysian rants and racist nature. COMMENT He may have ruled the country for 22 years before reluctantly calling it quits but Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who holds the record as the country’s longest serving Prime Minister, has no intention whatsoever of doing his bit to promote peace and harmony on Malaysian soil. Instead, Mahathir is doing the reverse; he is accusing arch enemy Anwar Ibrahim of plotting an ‘Arab Spring’ to overthrow the Barisan Nasional government. And the former premier regrets that regressive laws like the Internal Security Act and the Emergency Ordinance are no longer in use. Mahathir is also supportive of the move by Malay-rights group Perkasa to burn bibles with the word Allah saying it was natural to torch banned books and that Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali was merely expressing his opinion. No wonder why Ibrahim has the audacity to . ...

More than 400 people, young and old, gathered at Hong Lim Park on Saturday afternoon to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Operation Coldstore, a round of mass political arrests under the Internal Security Act (ISA).
For more than three and a half decades, the people of Sabah have always been aware of the huge number of foreigners arriving here and given fast-track citizenships to become voters.   We now hear directly from the horses’ mouth in the Royal Commission of Inquiry, confirming the clandestine modus operandi employed by Umno and carried out by the Election Commission and National Registration Department in rigging every Sabah election to sabotage the Sabahans’ choice of governments.   Unless the Barisan Nasional federal government now swiftly abolish the death penalty like it did the Internal Security Act, all the conspirators from both sides of the political divide might be sent to the gallows for high treason when their immunity from prosecution is revoked and removed once a change of government takes place.   Why even from the opposition side? How were they involved? For those who do not already know, apart from the dead and retired, 90% of the remaining perpetrators are now playing active roles in ...

  REMEMBERING OPERATION COLD STORE by Said Zahari   I was arrested in Operation Cold Store under the Internal Security Act (ISA) on 2 February 1963 by the British colonial government, aided and abetted by the chief minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew.  I was 34.   Lee Kuan Yew imprisoned me without trial for nearly 17 years. I was released on 22 August 1979.   At the time of my arrest, I was married to Salamah Abdul Wahab and we have three children – Roesman, a boy, Norman, another boy and a girl, Rismawati.  My wife Salamah was then six months’ pregnant with our last child.  Noorlinda was born when I was behind bars.   I am a Malay and a Singapore citizen by birth. I was educated in Singapore in both Malay and English.   My father came to Singapore from Java in his teens.  He died when I was a few months old.  As a child, I helped my widowed mother to augment the family’s meager income by selling kuih (local Malay cakes) that she made, in our village – Kampong Kebun Bunga.   By 1951, ...
Ex-NRD man: EC made us issue ICs to immigrants Nigel Aw 2:14PM Jan 16, 2013 A former Sabah National Registration Department (NRD) official has provided the clearest proof yet that there was indeed a concerted effort by the authorities to alter Sabah's electoral demographics in the 1990s. Testifying before the royal commission of inquiry (RCI) on Sabah's immigration problems today, Mohd Nasir Sugip said his department had once taken instructions from the state's Election Commission (EC) to provide unqualified immigrants with identity card numbers so that they are allowed to vote. Mohd Nasir, who was once detained under the Internal Security Act, said the clandestine scheme was dubbed 'Ops Durian Buruk' and ran from 1992 to 1995. "At that time, the Sabah SPR director Wan Ahmad (Wan Yusof, left) handed over a list of 16,000 names to be classified as 'Bumiputera Islam' voters. "My boss, Sabah NRD director Ramli Kamarudin, then verbally told me to execute this project," he said. Mohd Nasir also implicated thr ...

When we are strong, people dare not challenge us. They know the majority are our supporters. If they challenge anyway, we’d show them,” he said. He said a weak government is fearful of losing support, especially in a democracy, and this is why it has given up on using force and draconian laws. “Take the Internal Security Act (ISA) for example, what is there to be ashamed of ? When America and Britain were attacked by what they called terrorist, they arrested people and detained them without any laws, which is worst than us,” he said, ...
Defender of the last bastion My wife's pension can sustain us both: Tripura CM Manik Sarkar In a season of scams, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar's white kurta shines as bright as his legendary honesty. He is India's only chief minister who doesn't own a home, a car or a bank balance worth the mention. His SBI bank account had a balance of Rs.6,500 on September 17. He donates his salary, Rs.12,500, to the CPI(M) party fund and gets a monthly 'wage' of Rs.5,000 in return. When asked how he runs his household on the paltry sum, and where he will put up if he has to vacate the chief minister's house, he says, "My wife's pension can sustain us both. My expenses are small-a packet of snuff and a Charminar cigarette a day. About a home, we'll see." He eats rasmalai and cashewnuts for breakfast, as the music system in his bedroom plays Bhimsen Joshi, his favourite vocalist. At 10 a.m. sharp, he hops into the official vehicle, which is out of bounds for even his wife, Panchali Bhattacharya, a former employee ...

Folks, the NPP is going more ballistic in its determination to gore everybody it perceives as helping it end its “Concert Party” shows. The party is determined not to end the shows and is *** bent on entertaining the world with the flip-flops and flim-flammery that constitutes its post-election strategy to stay afloat. You won’t believe where they’ve taken their fight now. They have identified Benin’s President and Chairman of the Africa Union Yayi Boni as an enemy to be gored out of their way. They have accused him of meddling in the internal affairs of Ghana. His crime? Very simple and in tandem with what Ghana’s own Electoral Commission and local/international election monitors had already told the whole world about Election 2012 in Ghana.

Feinstein’s bill would criminalize millions of Americans and completely eviscerate second amendment rights. “She tells us a gun ban is about saving the children and reducing crime,but her comments on 60 Minutes in 1995 reveal her true plan is to target law-abiding American gun owners. “On Thursday,Feinstein will introduce her dream bill to ...
Volume 5 of the CIA’s History of the Bay of Pigs Fiasco In the late 1970s and early 1980s, CIA historian Dr. Jack B. Pfeiffer compiled a multi-volume history of the failed US attempt to invade Cuba in April 1961. In August 2005, the National Security Archive at George Washington University, citing the Freedom of Information Act, requested access to this history. The CIA finally released the information almost six years later, in July 2011. However it refused to release Volume V, which is titled “CIA’s Internal Investigation of the Bay of Pigs Operations.” Although more than 50 years have passed since the invasion, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that Volume V is exempt from the Freedom of Information Act because it “is covered by the deliberative process privilege” which “covers documents reflecting advisory opinions, recommendations and deliberations comprising part of a process by which governmental decisions and policies are formulated.”

Kazakhstan: The Evolution of a Power Structure January 7, 2013 | 1130 GMT Summary The question of succession in Kazakhstan has drawn greater attention as the country's long-serving leader Nursultan Nazarbayev advances in age. Nazarbayev has been in power for more than 20 years, and at 72 years old he is well past the average life expectancy for Kazakh males. Kazakhstan is important because of its strategic location -- flanked by Russia to the north and west and by China to the east -- and its sizeable energy and mineral resources. This gives the succession issue significant domestic and regional importance. Particularly in a country like Kazakhstan -- whose geography naturally fosters regionalism -- power historically has been centralized under strong and authoritarian leadership. However, this power has depended on the influence of numerous domestic and external actors within a particular structure. This structure will be instrumental in shaping the country's political trajectory. Analysis To understand ...
If someone believes they are DESERVING of something, are they asking for acknowledgement and validation on some level? What if you never get what you deserve, does that mean something is wrong with them or you? Do you get angry and resentful if you don't get what you feel you DESERVE? Can you make any one give you what you feel you deserve? What if they don't feel the same way, that you are deserving? The attitude just strikes me as odd. Any one else?

MSF: "Providing medical care in Syria has become an act of war" Le Monde.fr | December 28, 2012, 8:30 p.m. Interview conducted by Hélène Sallon In June, Médecins Sans Frontières-France (MSF) opened a hospital in the Idlib region in northern Syria, an area under rebel control. Located behind the front lines, the hospital has 15 beds and a staff of approximately 50, including 10 international health care workers. Designed initially to perform war surgery, the medical staff focused on medical and surgical emergencies as the front moved further away. MSF’s Belgian and Spanish sections managed two other hospitals in Syria, but the Belgian facility closed because of the dangerous conditions. Fabrice Weissman, MSF’s operations advisor, returned from a mission in Syria in early December. He was particularly struck by the breadth of the needs and the lack of international response. What are the conditions facing MSF’s medical staff in the Idlib region? As soon as you cross the border, you are vulnerable ...

GTBank Assures Customers on Secure Banking!!! Guaranty Trust Bank has re-affirmed its commitment to the safety of customers’ funds as it prepares for the 2013 financial year. In support of its promise, the Bank has installed several new technologies and introduced a number of internal procedures that would enable it identify spurious transactions and prevent frauds on customer accounts. Managing Director of the bank, Mr. Segun Agbaje who gave the assurance recently, said the bank was committed to ensure its customers are shielded from the escalating incidence of online and other forms of fraud being experienced within the industry. “We have introduced several new processes internally, which I cannot disclose that make it more difficult for fraudsters to have access to our customer accounts. Additionally we have a mutually beneficial relationship with law enforcement agencies, such as the Nigerian Police Force that enable us identify potential fraudsters and apprehend them before they act.

Life is in your hands especially for the Seniors Many people feel unhappy, health-wise and security-wise, after 60 years of age, owing to the diminishing importance given to them and their opinions. But, it need not be so, if only we understand the basic principles of life and follow them scrupulously. Here are ten mantras to age gracefully and make life after retirement pleasant. 1. Never say I am aged: There are three ages, chronological, biological, and psychological. The first is calculated based on our date of birth; the second is determined by the health conditions; the third is how old we feel we are. While we don't have control over the first, we can take care of our health with good diet, exercise and a cheerful attitude. A positive attitude and optimistic thinking can reverse the third age. 2. Health is wealth: If you really love your kith and kin, taking care of your health should be your priority. Thus, you will not be a burden to them. Have an annual health check-up and take the prescribed me ...

Is This You? Initially I enjoyed my career. I'd worked long hard to get where I was, not to mention all the money spent on a first rate education. Several years in a gnawing at my stomach told me something wasn't right. I was moving up the ladder of the American Dream, but my gut told me I was on the wrong ladder. I was good at what I did, but after a while I was just going through the motions, deriving little to no satisfaction. I was making too much money and was too successful to be making a life changing career choice and starting all over again. Right? I was on the treadmill and there was no way I could get off. Is 2013 the year you do something about it? Maybe I can help, drop me a note.
I have a problem with *** In the modern world, nothing turns off people from God more than the concept of *** specially the way most people explain it inadequately. *** for all the images of fire and brimstone and intense sufferings as projected by the outdated faith of believers brainwashed by religious fanatics is not a place, but a state, the state of separation from God. No one can convince me that the soul which is spirit can be hurt by physical fire and corporal punishments. Neither can anyone tell me that the God of mercy and compassion will create such a place of intense sufferings. Will a normal human father build a torture chamber in his basement to punish his errant children? So why would we attribute such crazy concept on our God? The concept of *** as a state can be gleaned from the writings of St. Augustine who wrote in his Confessions: “You made our hearts for You, Oh God, and they are restless until they find rest in You.” Yes, when a person dies, his soul will search for its s ...

A CPN/SCN number can be used in place of your SSN when applying for credit as long as you fully disclose it is a CPN/SCN number. All CPN/SCN numbers are privately issued numbers. This number does not replace your current SSN and should never be used for government purposes. Credit bureaus and creditors don’t want you to know that you can obtain a new credit file legally. According to the 1974 privacy Act you are not obligated to give your SSN to private industry, CPN/SCN numbers are to be used for credit purposes only and not for fraudulent intentions. This will not relinquish you from any previous debt. You are still legally responsible for your own debt. The CPN/SCN is a nine-digit number that has the exact same genetic makeup of a Social Security Number. This is not a government issued number like an EIN or TIN. This number is NOT a new social security number and NOT a tax ID or EIN. It is simply a available file number at the credit bureaus that can have financial information reported. You have the ...
My dad was suggesting that every year a certain section of the army should be made to do the job of the police and similarly batches of the police should be trained in the job of the army. Gradually all of army and police should be aware and adept at both the jobs. This will make them more physically fit, disciplined and capable of protecting the people of India, and preventing crimes. I dunno how good the idea is, but it seems like a real good idea to me. And since my dad as well as both my grand dads had some defense background, I imagine if he says it so confidently, then it can very much be a possible and an implementable idea.
Since government departments have allowed their internal capacities to erode over a period of decades, they've landed themselves in a situation where even when they want to do something or when they're ordered to do something by the courts, they actually can't, because there is no one to do the job right. The ongoing issue with voter registrations is a good example. After Commander Bhat and I filed a writ in the High Court against the shoddy process of registration and records-keeping, the court has ordered the EC to clean up its act. But the 'act', it turns out, cannot be performed by the EC itself, but instead requires the services of the software development company (CMC) to which the work has been 'entrusted' :) So big is the void that if the Chief Electoral Officer himself is unable to attend a meeting to discuss problems with the database and documentation, the only remaining persons in the meeting are all CMC officials (that's what happened yesterday). And these guys have nothing useful to say, sin ...

  By Hussein Dakroub The (Beirut, Lebanon) Daily Star Published: January 5, 2013   BEIRUT, Lebanon -- What Hezbollah will do if and when the regime of Syria’s embattled President Bashar Assad is toppled by the widening armed rebellion is of increasing concern to the Lebanese.   Also, Arab and foreign countries have repeatedly voiced concerns through their ambassadors in Beirut over the country’s stability and security in a post-Assad era.   The issue has gained much credence in recent weeks amid growing signs pointing to predictions of the “imminent collapse” of the Assad regime by senior Western officials as well as Syrian rebel and opposition groups.   The past few weeks have witnessed major developments in favor of the Syrian opposition, auguring ill for the Assad regime, which has clearly failed to crush the rising popular uprising despite the excessive use of military force, including warplanes to pound rebel positions since the revolt began in March 2011.   Political analysts ...

Thea Cross That sounds all high minded of you, and yet the posts are simply NRA rhetoric. If you want to inspire thought, as a gun advocate, why not give an idea or two about what you perceive to be a sensible solution to the gun violence? You don't need to be all up in arms because the government is messing with your right to pretend to be John Wayne; that would not be the government, that would be me, and thousands more like me, who are tired of the violence.

Everyone Got a 2% Cut in Pay NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Congress acted just in time, literally, in passing the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. As a result, the Internal Revenue Service has been able to release updated income tax withholding tables for 2013 that will apply to the first paychecks issued in the New Year. ATRA extended the various tax benefits that had expired Dec. 31 -- with one exception. Noticeably missing from the legislation was an extension of the 2% reduction of the employee's share of Social Security Tax withholding and the corresponding reduction in the Self-Employment Tax. This 2% reduction in payroll tax withholding for 2011 and last year was the latest incarnation of George W. Bush's disastrous rebate checks. So starting Jan. 1, everyone got a 2% cut in pay! Beginning with the first paycheck of this year, the employee's share of the Social Security tax returns to 6.2% and will apply to wages of up to $113,700, the new maximum Social Security wage base. The Self-Employment Tax w ...

For Minister Teo Chee Hean (11) ISA used only as a last resort, says DPM Teo It has taken me more than a year to respond to DPM Teo Chee Hean’s speech reported in The Straits Times of 20 October 2011. In letters 5 to 10, I had refuted his claim that there are safeguards under the law. Letters to 10 specifically demolished the advisory board as constituting any safeguard. I now move on to the so called Veto Power of the president of Singapore. Is that another safeguard? Article 151 (4) of the Constitution of the Republic of Singaprore reads: “Where an advisory board constituted for the purposes of this Article recommends the release of any person under any law or ordinance made or promulgated in pursuance of this Part, the person shall not be detained or further detained without the concurrence of the President if the recommendations of the advisory board are not accepted by the authority on whose advice or order the person is detained.” And section 13A of the Internal Security Act reads as follows: ...

ANTI-GOVERNMENT DEMOSTRATION Government invoke ISA in Bangkok to handle Saturday rally BANGKOK: -- The government will enforce the Internal Security Act for nine days, starting today, in three Bangkok districts to handle the anti-government mass rally scheduled this Saturday. Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung said the three districts are Phra Nakhon, Pomprab Satrupai and Dusit. The National Security Council expected some 40,000 demonstrators to join the rally organised by Pitak Siam leader Gen Boonlert Kaewprasit at the Royal Plaza on Saturday, though police believed 50,000 people will show up. The ISA enforcement empowered the government to call military reinforcements if police failed to control the crowd. The decision was made in a meeting of ruling Pheu Thai Cabinet meeting and chaired by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. Police Commissioner General Pol Gen Adul Saengsingkaew had prepared 112 companies comprising 16,800 pol ...

Maybe today is a time to repeal Internal Security Act of 1950...According to its 2001 Constitution, the party operates on the principle of democratic centralism, its highest authority being the quadrennial National Convention. Article VI, Section 3 of the 2001 Constitution lays out certain positions as non-negotiable: "struggle for the unity of the working class, against all forms of national oppression, national chauvinism, discrimination and segregation, against all racist ideologies and practices… against all manifestations of male supremacy and discrimination against women… against homophobia and all manifestations of discrimination against *** *** bisexuals and transgender people…"[53] Among the points in the party's "Immediate Program" are a $12/hour minimum wage for all workers, national universal health care, and opposition to privatization of United States Social Security.

Subject: THE GOOD NEWS AND BAD The good news... and the bad · Rom Nain After a couple of weeks or so of unrelenting inanity, enough to make me wax lyrical (well, almost) in this column, I thought of writing something nice, inoffensive, light-hearted even, this week. After all, two Malaysian court decisions this past week certainly gave many of us reason to cheer. The judgment for the five ex-ISA detainees in the illegal detention suit they brought against the regime, for one, must have been the perfect pick-me-up for many of us. The KL High Court found that the five had been detained unlawfully and in bad faith in 2001 and reportedly awarded them ‘RM15,000 each, for every day of their detention under Section 73 of the Internal Security Act, as well as RM30,000 each as aggravated damages’. Altogether, in the Oct 2 judgment, five former ISA detainess, then Reformasi activists, including the irrepressible Hishamuddin Rais (left), PAS’ Hulu Selangor assemblyperson Saari Sungib and PKR’s Batu MP Chua ...

Next thing the naval officers learned was that Operation Merdeka had been denounced. The denunciation of the covert operation cost hundreds and hundreds of Filipino lives on covert mission in Sabah, many of whom were tortured and physically abused before being put to death by the dreaded Malaysian Internal Security Act (ISA) elements.

Time for Regime Change? Whether you call it a Freudian slip or not, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s admission that he repealed the Internal Security Act (ISA) because “it did not benefit BN politically” couldn’t come at worse time. With the general election looming so close, the Prime Minister has indeed laid bare his “real self” to the entire nation.With that unsolicited confession, Najib has in fact committed the greatest blunder of his political career. Faced with such a predicament, political leaders — especially heads of state — can always resort to blaming others, not the least on misreporting by the media. With this one, he has been checkmated because he was heard and quoted verbatim.But what is so wrong about it, you might wonder. Well, there is hardly anything right about that statement. As to its wrongs, that will make up an endless list. Firstly, the draconian nature of the ISA needs no further elaboration. The antiquated law has always been looked upon with scorn and utter disdain. Th ...
Muslim Brotherhood.. -- Communism with a god ... In the closing days of the 2008 presidential campaign, Democratic candidate Barack Obama declared that he was poised to begin "fundamentally transforming the United States of America." He has certainly done so with respect to policies favored by Islamists. Pat McCarran was the chairman of the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee that investigated the administrations headed by Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman. In September 1950 he was the chief sponsor of the Internal Security Act. This legislation required registration with the Attorney General of the American Communist Party and affiliated organizations. In June, 1952, Pat McCarran and Francis Walter instigated the passing of the McCarran-Walter Act that imposed more rigid restrictions on entry quotas to the United States. It also stiffened the existing law relating to the admission, exclusion and deportation of dangerous aliens as defined in the Internal Security Act.
In vetoing of the McCarran Internal Security Act of 1950, President Truman wrote"In a free country, we punish men for the crimes they commit, but never for the opinions they have"

. writes on the smoke and mirrors of "new" Internal Security Act
In SE Asia, we have had our own version of the Arab Spring (where ordinary citizens decided that enough is enough and overthrew their corrupted and authoritarian governments.) But it is not as violent and sudden as in the Middle East. Indonesia, which for decades was ruled by a succession of authoritarian Presidents have now embarked on the road to true democracy. The Philippines, in President Aquino, is slowly succeeding in reversing the endemic corruption in government that included past Presidents. Thailand, after several coups and protests has now accepted the fact that a government can only be in power with the consent of its people. Malaysia is still struggling with money and racial politics. But the present government has reversed sacred stone policies and laws that are similar to Singapore’s – the Internal Security Act, the Printing and Newspapers Act and several other laws that the government used in the past to suppress opposition. They even lifted the ban on university students engaging i ...
