JB Crime: Man Slashed in Face and Robbed at 1pm

December 17, 08

I told you long ago – the JB criminals have not left or been vanquished by the influx of extra police. They simply went into hiding, biding their time until people let their guard down.

Jalan Wong Ah Fook and other areas around the JB city centre near the Causeway are hot spots for crime. They love to target people, especially unsuspecting Singaporeans who are used to the safety and lawfulness in Singapore and are carrying lots of juicy, 2.35 times more valuable Singapore Dollars.

From The Star 17 Dec 2008:

Slashed in brazen attack

JB Slash Rob

JOHOR BARU: A 31-year-old construction site supervisor needed more than 100 stitches on his face and neck after a knife-wielding robber slashed him in broad daylight.

Teh Hiang Seng, who works in Singapore, was going to make credit card payments at a bank in Jalan Wong Ah Fook at 1pm on Sunday when a man approached him and demanded the RM920 he had.

Teh said he tried to fight but the man managed to overpower him.

“I tried running away but he chased after me. He then took out a pocket knife and slashed me on the face,” he said.

He was speaking at a press conference organised by Johor Baru City Council councillor Rodney Soon here yesterday.

Teh explained that the robber was about to take his money when the bank’s security guards came to his rescue.

“The guards held off the man and called the police. I am deeply traumatised by the attack.”

Police sent him to the Sultanah Aminah Hospital, where he received more than 100 stitches for the injuries on his face.

Soon said he would write a letter to the police urging them to tighten security in the city, especially in the central business district.

Impose law and order on the JB Custom & Immigration Quarantine Complex

December 16, 08

My gripe about my experience which happened today, with the new Custom & Immigration Quarantine Complex (Bangunan Sultan Iskandar) in Johor Bahru that opened today, that was written up in word form today, and sent to Malaysia Today and Malaysiakini today. Promptness, the great advantage of New Media!

I doubt the relevant authorities will be reading Malaysia Today or Malaysiakini, however. They never do except to bash them.

From Malaysia Today:

Custom & Immigration Quarantine Complex CIQ Bangunan Sultan Iskandar JB    Custom & Immigration Quarantine Complex CIQ Bangunan Sultan Iskandar JB

Impose law and order on the JB Custom & Immigration Quarantine Complex

On Tuesday, the 16th of December 2008, the new Custom & Immigration Quarantine Complex (Bangunan Sultan Iskandar) began operations in Johor Bahru. As one of the thousands of Malaysians who commutes to work in Singapore daily, I was a firsthand witness to the new system.

Overall, I must say that I am impressed by the facilities of the CIQ Complex – and more so by the security and verification measures that the old customs system sorely lacked.

However, I have one very serious gripe that I hope the CIQ Complex management will immediately seek to rectify.

Once a bus passenger clears the passport check, the next process is to head back down to the bus waiting area to try and catch a bus. On a workday morning, this step is literally a descent into madness.

If any reader has ever taken a bus from Malaysia to Singapore at the old customs complex, they’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Just like always, the bus crowd becomes a literal rabid mob!

650 Respected Scientists to Challenge Global Warming Nonsense in Front of the UN

December 11, 08

Via Moonbattery, comes this Senate Minority Report:

The UN global warming conference currently underway in Poland is about to face a serious challenge from over 650 dissenting scientists from around the globe who are criticizing the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore. Set for release this week, a newly updated U.S. Senate Minority Report features the dissenting voices of over 650 international scientists, many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN. The report has added about 250 scientists (and growing) in 2008 to the over 400 scientists who spoke out in 2007. The over 650 dissenting scientists are more than 12 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.

A few highlights from the minority report:

I am a skeptic…Global warming has become a new religion.” – Nobel Prize Winner for Physics, Ivar Giaever.

“Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain skeptical.” – Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson, the first woman in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology and formerly of NASA who has authored more than 190 studies and has been called “among the most preeminent scientists of the last 100 years.”

Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.

“The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds… I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists,” – Indian geologist Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the UN-supported International Year of the Planet.

“The models and forecasts of the UN IPCC “are incorrect because they only are based on mathematical models and presented results at scenarios that do not include, for example, solar activity.” – Victor Manuel Velasco Herrera, a researcher at the Institute of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico

“It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.” – U.S Government Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA.

“Even doubling or tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact, as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide scene and always will.” – . Geoffrey G. Duffy, a professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering of the University of Auckland, NZ.

“After reading [UN IPCC chairman] Pachauri’s asinine comment [comparing skeptics to] Flat Earthers, it’s hard to remain quiet.” – Climate statistician Dr. William M. Briggs, who specializes in the statistics of forecast evaluation, serves on the American Meteorological Society’s Probability and Statistics Committee and is an Associate Editor of Monthly Weather Review.

“For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming? For how many years must cooling go on?” – Geologist Dr. David Gee the chairman of the science committee of the 2008 International Geological Congress who has authored 130 plus peer reviewed papers, and is currently at Uppsala University in Sweden.

Gore prompted me to start delving into the science again and I quickly found myself solidly in the skeptic camp…Climate models can at best be useful for explaining climate changes after the fact.” – Meteorologist Hajo Smit of Holland, who reversed his belief in man-made warming to become a skeptic, is a former member of the Dutch UN IPCC committee.

“Many [scientists] are now searching for a way to back out quietly (from promoting warming fears), without having their professional careers ruined.” – Atmospheric physicist James A. Peden, formerly of the Space Research and Coordination Center in Pittsburgh.

“Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Environmental Scientist Professor Delgado Domingos of Portugal, the founder of the Numerical Weather Forecast group, has more than 150 published articles.

“CO2 emissions make absolutely no difference one way or another….Every scientist knows this, but it doesn’t pay to say so…Global warming, as a political vehicle, keeps Europeans in the driver’s seat and developing nations walking barefoot.” – Dr. Takeda Kunihiko, vice-chancellor of the Institute of Science and Technology Research at Chubu University in Japan.

“The [global warming] scaremongering has its justification in the fact that it is something that generates funds.” – Award-winning Paleontologist Dr. Eduardo Tonni, of the Committee for Scientific Research in Buenos Aires and head of the Paleontology Department at the University of La Plata.

Blagojevich Scandal – Obama Flat Out Lying About His Unsavoury Acquiantances (As Usual!)

December 11, 08

Barack Obama is lying, and lying blatantly and unconvincingly, about his connections to disgraced Democrat Rod Balgojevich (explained in plain English here).

So what else is new about Obama lying and parsing when it is politically convenient?

Following expose from Gateway Pundit and Stop the ACLU.

Obama says that he had NO CONTACT with Blagojevich:

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

To which I say: LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

Obama’s website is squashing all questions about Blagojevich.

LIAR! And trying to remove the proof of Obama-Blagojevich connections from your website too!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

LIAR!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

Among important things to consider: Why didn’t Obama or someone on Obama’s team correct Obama’s close adviser David Axelrod when he said Obama had spoken to Blagojevich about picking Obama’s replacement?

And while we’re at it, Jesse Jackson Jr.

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

Is a big fat LIAR too!

Obama lies about Rod Blagojevich connection

Is everyone who is linked to Obama a shameless fibmaestro? Do these people even understand that strange, alien concept known as ETHICS?

I have to ask again: How do you Obama supporters know that he will fulfill any of his casually flung about promises on the war, the economy, healthcare, taxes, welfare, energy, ANYTHING… When Obama is such a LIAR????

No-Hope Atheism, Dawkins’ God Delusion and Bullying Liberal Professors Cause Suicide

December 10, 08

From World Net Daily:

——————————————

Dad links son’s suicide to ‘The God Delusion’
Says atheism-promoting book hidden under mattress, last page bookmarked

A New York man is linking the suicide of his 22-year-old son, a military veteran who had bright prospects in college, to the anti-Christian book “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins after a college professor challenged the son to read it.

“Three people told us he had taken a biology class and was doing well in it, but other students and the professor were really challenging my son, his faith. They didn’t like him as a Republican, as a Christian, and as a conservative who believed in intelligent design,” the grief-stricken father, Keith Kilgore, told WND about his son, Jesse.

“This professor either assigned him to read or challenged him to read a book, ‘The God Delusion,’ by Richard Dawkins,” he said.

Jesse Kilgore committed suicide in October by walking into the woods near his New York home and shooting himself. Keith Kilgore said he was shocked because he believed his son was grounded in Christianity, had blogged against abortion and for family values, and boasted he’d been debating for years.

After Jesse’s death, Keith Kilgore learned of the book assignment from two of his son’s friends and a relative. He searched Jesse’s room and found the book under the mattress with his son’s bookmark on the last page.

The first inkling of a reason for the suicide came, Keith Kilgore told WND, when one of Jesse’s friends came to visit after word of his son’s death circulated.

“She was in tears [and said] he was very upset by this book,” Keith Kilgore said. “‘It just destroyed him,’ were her words.

Then another friend at the funeral told me the same thing,” Keith Kilgore said. “This guy was his best friend, and about the only other Christian on campus.

“The third one was the last person that my son talked to an hour before [he died,]” Keith Kilgore told WND, referring to a member of his extended family whose name is not being revealed here.

That relative, who had struggled with his own faith and had returned to Christianity, wrote in a later e-mail that Jesse “started to tell me about his loss of faith in everything.”

“He was pretty much an atheist, with no belief in the existence of God (in any form) or an afterlife or even in the concept of right or wrong,” the relative wrote. “I remember him telling me that he thought that murder wasn’t wrong per se, but he would never do it because of the social consequences – that was all there was – just social consequences.

“He mentioned the book he had been reading ‘The God Delusion’ by Richard Dawkins and how it along with the science classes he had take[n] had eroded his faith. Jesse was always great about defending his beliefs, but somehow, the professors and the book had presented him information that he found to be irrefutable. He had not talked … about it because he was afraid of how you might react. … and that he knew most of your defenses of Christianity because he himself used them often. Maybe he had used them against his professors and had the ideas shot down.”

He then explained to Jesse his own personal journey of seeking “other explanations of God’s existence” and told of his ultimate return.

“I told him it was my relationship with God, not my knowledge of Him that brought me back to my faith. No one convinced me with facts. … it was a matter of the heart.”

Keith Kilgore believes it was a biology class that raised questions for his son, and a biology professor at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, N.Y., where his son was attending, who suggested the book.

A school spokeswoman told WND that the “God Delusion” was not a part of the biology curriculum, and several of the professors she contacted said they had not even read the book. However, the spokeswoman was unable to contact all of the professors in the department and could not state that none of them had suggested the book to Jesse.

Local police also did not respond to WND inquiries about the investigation into the death.

“One of his friends, and his uncle (they did not know each other) both told me that Jesse called them hours before he took his life and that he had lost all hope because he was convinced that God did not exist, and this book was the cause,” Keith Kilgore told WND.

Keith Kilgore, a retired military chaplain who has dealt with the various stages of grief and readily admits he’s still in the “anger” stage over his son’s death, said his son apparently had checked the “Delusion” out of the college library.

“I’m all for academic freedom,” Keith Kilgore said. “What I do have a problem with is if there’s going to be academic freedom, there has to be academic balance.

“They were undermining every moral and spiritual value for my [son],” he said. “They ought to be held accountable.”

He suggested the moral is for Christians simply to abandon public schools wholly.

“Here’s another thing,” he continued. “If my son was a professing homosexual, and a professor challenged him to read [a book called] ‘Preventing Homosexuality’… If my son was gay and [the book] made him feel bad, hopeless, and he killed himself, and that came out in the press, there would be an outcry.

“He would have been a victim of a hate crime and the professor would have been forced to undergo sensitivity training, and there may have even been a wrongful death lawsuit.

“But because he’s a Christian, I don’t even get a return telephone call,” the father told WND.

He said he tried to verify the book assignment himself several times, without getting a response from the school.

Jesse Kilgore blogged on NetPotion and Newblog, and the writings that remained mostly addressed social ills and how anti-Christian many of the world’s developments appeared to be.

Dawkins, considered one of the world’s most outspoken atheists, is a professor in the United Kingdom. He came to prominence in 1976 with his book “The Selfish Gene,” promoting evolution.

In his “Delusion” treatise he claims that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist and that faith qualifies as a “delusion” – a fixed false belief.

May the Lord have mercy on his soul that had been deceived by the hate-filled mockery of self-important atheism.

Name That Party! MSM Almost Always Omits Mention Democrat Party Affiliation of Convicted Politicians

December 10, 08

So, lib trolls… Tell me again how there is no such thing as Liberal Media Bias, and how the only biased media is FOX News.

Here’s a very, very partial list of examples of the MSM obscuring the Democrat affiliation of big sleazy crooks (while taking pains to make sure readers know when a Republican is caught).

The motive? Plain and simple to see – gradually and relentlessly expose the public to wrongdoings of the Republicans while covering up the more serious and frequent wrongdoings by Democrats, thus moulding public perception against the Republicans.

Journalistic integrity? Objectivity and fairness? Pah!

(Readers can also do their own fun searches for “Name That Party”!)

(Or play Name That Party with Lawhawk!)

(Malkin and Moonbattery have a list of recent major Democratic corruption/dishnoesty scandals. And if you haven’t heard of them before… That is exactly my point!)

Related: The media labeled mainstream Justice Alito “conservative” ten times more than they have labeled Kagan a “liberal”.

Another recent case Ann Coulter points out:

According to Nexis, there have been more than 300 news stories reporting on the Bell scandal. Guess how many mentioned the party affiliation of the corrupt government bureaucrats?

One. Yes, just one. Now guess if the government officials were Democrats or Republicans? Yes, that is correct.Congratulations — you’ve qualified for our bonus round!

The one newspaper to cough up party affiliations, The Orange County Register, admitted that the corrupt officials were all Democrats only in response to reader complaints about the peculiar omission.

Lots of news stories on the scandal in Bell used the word “Democrat” or “Democratic.” But that was only to say that the DEMOCRATIC attorney general of California, Jerry Brown, who is running on the DEMOCRATIC ticket for governor, is investigating the Bell officials’ salaries.

Useless ‘Untrained’ Rescuers Didn’t Bother to Help Save Woman – Yet Even a 2-Year-Old Knows How to Dig in Dirt

December 10, 08

Read this in today’s Singapore newspapers and on a tip from wits0, via Politics 101 Malaysia, from Malaysiakini:

Rescuers drank, valuables missing, victim left unrescued

In a frantic attempt to save his wife, a 31-year-old executive was forced to dig through the earth with his bare hands until his fingers bled.

He felt a sense of relief when rescue personnel arrived at the scene. But to his horror, they refused to help him, apart from throwing him a spade.

The startling accusation was made by the family of Ng Yee Ping, a 30-year-old accountant who perished in the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide tragedy on Saturday.

Yee Ping, who delivered a son two months ago, is believed to have died of internal injuries due to broken ribs.

However, Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar came to the defence of the rescue personnel, citing their lack of training as a reason.

Speaking to reporters at the funeral service for Yee Ping yesterday, her family vented their frustrations claiming that she could still be alive if rescue personnel had acted promptly.

Recounting the ordeal, yee Ping’s mother-in-law Wong Sai Mooi said she and her husband had escaped through the second-floor window.

She then called out for her two sons.

“I heard my sons reply, I also heard my grandson crying. I felt relieved but did not know that my daughter-in-law was buried alive.

“Then I heard my eldest son (Yee Ping’s husband) calling his wife, telling her to remain conscious,” she was quoted as saying by China Press.

At this point, Wong (left) said she knew that her daughter-in-law was trapped, but fearing that there could be another landslide, she told her sons to leave the damaged bungalow.

However, yee Ping’s husband refused to leave his wife behind, and after handing his newborn son to his brother, he started to dig with his bare hands. His brother later returned to help him.

‘They treated her like a dead dog’

After some time, just as they managed to reach the victim’s hand, several rescue personnel passed the area. The brothers asked them for help but were told to wait until more personnel arrived.

“Later, a few rescue personnel arrived at the scene but they just threw a spade at (my sons) and did nothing,” she alleged, claiming that Yee Ping could still be alive if they had assisted. “But they didn’t (help). (They treated her) like some dead dog or cat. Would they have done the same if one of their family-members was involved?” she asked bitterly.

Wong’s husband, Ng Yong Shun, 56, also accused the rescue personnel of looting his house and consuming his expensive wine.

He claimed that when he returned to the house on Sunday morning, he was shocked to discover several men in uniform lying on his bed, smoking and drinking his wine.

“One of them had even asked me whether I still wanted these things, if not I should give it to them. Later, my wife and I examined our safety box and found it opened. Several branded watches and jewellery were missing,” he said.

According to Oriental Daily News, Ng said he lost 80 bottles of expensive wine worth RM160,000 and six watches worth RM180,000.

Police chief: ‘I don’t believe’

Commenting on the accusations yesterday, Khalid said he found it hard to believe that rescue personnel would have acted in such a cold-hearted manner.

“I don’t believe that they would sit there and drink alcohol and so on. If there is such a person, could he be seen as a human being?” asked the police chief.

Khalid said the police would meet with the family to gather more information and conduct a thorough probe into the matter.

On the same note, he explained that some rescue personnel who are untrained are not allowed to conduct certain rescue operations.

“You don’t expect an ambulance driver to save a buried victim. He is not trained, so if we request untrained personnel for help and they refuse, we shouldn’t blame them.

“This is because their lives are in danger too. I think we should respect their decision. To dig and save someone, one has to be trained. For an untrained person, it’s a very dangerous task,” he said.

Is it a carnival?

Khalid also expressed disappointment with the media for publishing such accounts without verifying the matter with him.

“I hope that before you all write your news, you will consult me first, and make sure such things really happened. Is there anything wrong with that?

“Please, we are working hard here, and you are making it into a situation where people would have a negative impression of us,” he told reporters.

Khalid also saw red when quizzed on the ‘carnival-like atmosphere’ with the abundance of food and other facilities for rescue personnel.

“What do you think? Does it really look like a carnival? If that is the case, you write (what you want), there’s no need to ask for my opinion,” he thundered.

“Is it a carnival or is the rescue team working hard? If you think it’s the former, you just write, it seems you have enough intelligence to comment on it,” he added.

To which may I say:

YOU F**KING USELESS INHUMAN MORONS!!!!!! Even toddlers know how to dig in the mud with their bare hands!

How much f**king training do you need to use your f**king taxpayer-bought spades to dig some soil and save a woman’s life? Do you f**king morons need f**king official training to wipe your blardy f**ked ar$e$ as well?

What kind of morons are employed by the UMNOputra government anyway??!!! (Wait, that’s a stupid question.)

And before you take our fine police chief’s word for anything, remember that Khalid was the guy who denied the existence of a video even as it was being played on blogs nationwide.

Khalid Abu Bakar deny video evidence Negaraku Bersih arrests

It’s way past time to kick all the useless deadweight out of government, along with kicking all their crony useless deadweights out of official positions and the entirety of the public sector.
