Hishamuddin Rais what size is Rosmah's twin peak ?

The Art of Mockery

So Rosmah's physical and her twin peak appearance.did  disturb you ?

Activist Hishamuddin Rais 

Cheeky Malaysia first lady secret weapon giving Malaysians dirty thoughts Best of Malaysia sex gets Naughty Losing heat between the sheets? Take a quick refresher course from Rosmah to enjoy sex better and boost your love life

As cool as a cucumber

Activist Hishamuddin Rais came under fire for making personal remarks against Rosmah Mansor, the prime minister's wife, rather than focusing on alleged misdeeds of her husband Najib Abdul Razak.

In particular, a member of the audience at a panel discussion on '' yesterday cited Hishamuddin's tendency to make sexist remarks, including against Rosmah.
The issue was raised in context of perceived blurred lines when using comedy as a social commentary tool.
A visibly flustered Rosmah said, "Every year we are dumped with useless gifts. We don't know what to do with them so we pass them on 
 This is nothing but corruption and things need to be changed. Malaysia's first lady  has been patient for so long but enough is enough!" But there is a deeper, more crucial point that needs to be highlighted. Having analysed Rosmah’s meteoric rise, right from  when she cunningly capitalised on the outrage against by deftly maneuvering herself into the the first lady’s chair,  to the point where she squandered her goodwill by attempting to blackmail Najib political opponents, Najib’s brand of politics conveys an insidious sense of hypocrisy laced with pessimism about Malay’s future. He seems to believe that  is still stuck in a socialist-era time warp, a depressing time when the aam admi dreamt about government largesse to light his hearth. A bygone era (thank God), when telephone connections took years to be approved and gas-connections were an achievement you could flaunt in a matrimonial advertisement. The Rosmah’s appeal would have been obvious and even appreciable in a time like that – harassed Sharizat would have found a safe haven in Rosmah’s scheme of things. A dharna here and a dharna there, could easily have spurred the shameless Rosmah out of his perennial inertia 
Najib I am thinking of you right now"
Close your eyes and imagine that your guy is right there with you, visualise his every move and do it to yourself. You have to feel aroused and in the moment to be able to stimulate any erotic emotion in him. Touch yourself in the most sensuous way you can imagine and just pretend it's him. Have a little fun with your body to get you in the mood — just remember to verbalise every little thing you're doing to yourself. Don't worry if you feel a little tongue-tied, as you get into the mood, the words will start flowing.

"I wish we were together..."
Think of those erotic sexual encounters you have had together in the past and draw inspiration from them. Tell him how desperately you want to hold him close to you and how you cannot wait for the time you'll be together again. The feeling of longing and desperation is what's going to intensify this experience and help exceed your expectations.

"I love the way you're making me feel"
Tell him you are hot for him right now — nothing boosts a man's confidence more than knowing the effect he's having on you. Let him know how the thought of him touching you is driving you crazy with desire. A little moaning and grunting should help up the ante. However, don't focus on being too creative with your words. Simply go with the flow and enjoy the lascivious state you are in.

"How does that make you feel?"
Gauge if your partner is suddenly too quiet for your liking. If so, get him back in on the action by asking him what he is doing or feeling at the moment. Ask him exactly what he'd do to you if you were with him right now. If he is a little too on the coy side, ask him simple questions with 'yes' or 'no' answers to get the ball rolling and help him shed his inhibitions.

"Are you ready for me now?"
Don't hold back if you've reached climax as that is what takes it to the point of eargasm. Give him everything he wants to hear — the groans, the sighs and the heavy breathing — to leave him hanging till he spills. In the end, tell him how good it felt and how you simply want to cuddle up with him.

All of us make mistakes — sometimes because we’re thoughtless, sometimes because we’re clueless, often out of ignorance. But when it’s clear you blew it, even though every instinct is saying play dumb, accept responsibility.
Women should use their "secret weapon" When you are the PM's wife why bug the husband... just rob the country easy. No need husband's permission. On using the secret weapon .its giving me dirty thoughts. Rosmah you are so cheeky ..
instead of bugging their husbands for sex, said Rosmah Mansor. Her brilliant sense of humour and wit. Pleasantly put and suggestive.  Apart from the vibrator,don't forget the artificial - just like the real thing and ought to provide lots of happy hours.
Porn addiction forces men to deliberately conjure images of pornography during sex to maintain arousal and have concerns over their own sexual performance and body image, a study has found. when some women see female colleagues succeeding at work, they feel threatened - particularly if their colleague is good at something they're not - and respond with "bitchy" tactics. These women can be driven by perfectionism, anxiety, a sense of not feeling good enough, a sense of anger or a sense of entitlement.
The new mantra for women who feel their sex life is boring and bereft of passion: connect love with sex and enhance the pleasure between the sheets.

According to an interesting study, love and commitment can make sex physically more satisfying for many women.

"In our study, women said that they connected love with sex and that love actually enhanced the physical experience of sex," said Beth Montemurro, associate professor of sociology from Penn State Abington, a commonwealth campus of the Pennsylvania State University.

In a series of interviews with 95 women between ages 20 and 68, most said they believed love was necessary for maximum satisfaction in both sexual relationships and marriage.

The benefits of being in love with a sexual partner are more than just emotional.

Most of the women in the study said that love made sex physically more pleasurable.

Women who loved their sexual partners also said they felt less inhibited to explore their sexuality.

"When women feel love, they may feel greater sexual agency because they not only trust their partners but because they feel that it is OK to have sex when love is present," Montemurro noted.

Only 18 women unequivocally believed that love was unnecessary in a sexual relationship.

"The connection between love and sex may show how women are socialized to see sex as an expression of love," Montemurro maintained in a presentation at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Tuesday.

"For the women I interviewed, they seemed to say you need love in sex and you need sex in marriage," Montemurro concluded.

Najib’s fall from grace appears to now be complete. Relegated to snippets in the back-pages of newspapers and after a near blackout from primetime
 ran away from responsibility, he merely asks for votes but doesn’t perform.)
 has now taken to getting clicked with pictures of garbage, in an obviously desperate bid to remain relevant. The cruel irony in this is hard to miss. With even his belovedRosmah having been swept from under his nose by a deft UMNO  the party is now faced with a cruel but unavoidable existential dilemma – what and whom do Rosmah stand for?

 more as an irritating sideshow than a viable political alternative. Cruelly, most news-items about him these days are also satirical pieces which merely underscores his irrelevance in Malay’s political circuit.  Apart from the cult of yes-men that Najib has surrounded himself with, most of his original supporters have deserted him. The reasons vary. Some claim that his larger than justified ego has clouded his perception of reality, while others point to his more human foibles

The scope of the Attorney-General’s powers and the malady of unauthorized decisions

Every good drama needs a few sub-plots whirling through the mainframe. The most captivating within our current political theatre is surely the joust that is odd that the government should have chosen law and order as its final alibi after some exhausting self-laceration in its search for a credible explanation for the escape of a criminal Najib The only initiative worth taking is one that will yield positive results. If one embarks on a destructive course of action, it will be oneself that suffers. Therefore, one should steer clear of such actions, as any sensible person steers clear of destroying his own life.No charges will be brought against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak based on the investigations carried out by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission

Corrupt political leadership does not attractive men of outstanding integrity; neither can it be expected to enact effective laws to maintain high integrity in government. That truism has practically reduced our options to only one – a change of political leadership. That is, if we are still serious about restoring the rule of law and the pursuit of excellence for the country.The general logic doesn’t apply to AG. When others take refuge in opacity, we are justified in suspecting that they are hiding corruption. But when AG chanbers wrap themselves in a veil of secrecy, we have to take it that they are actually doing so for our good, so that they are not distracted by allegations of corruption against themselves.One way of coming to terms with this distinction is to re-adopt the outdated notion that king could do no wrong. Going by his logic,  does seem to suggest some such blanket immunity to  attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali 

 The Supreme Court on Friday read out the riot act to Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury for not vacating the sprawling ministerial bungalow in New Moti Bagh in south Delhi and ordered him to shift out without further fuss.
Coming out strongly against the malady of overstaying by elected representatives and public servants in government accommodation, a bench of Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justices A K Sikri and R Banumathi said, "You vacate immediately. You must find an alternative temporary accommodation. You cannot grab this government accommodation. You have no legal right to stay in a house to which you have no entitlement."

Appearing for the Congress leader, advocate Bijan Ghosh said the government had violated the MP's human rights by disconnecting electricity and water connection to the house. "A person has some human rights and the government must be directed to respect it," he said.
But the court said, "There is some propriety also. You must vacate. You have already overstayed in the house for nearly two years without entitlement. You cannot grab this house. Your paying the house rent is no consideration to permit you to illegally occupy the house."
When Ghosh said there were several others who were overstaying and termed it as a "practice", the bench said, "It is a malpractice that elected representatives overstay in the official bungalows."The MP had cried foul over the government's move to evict him from the Type-8 house, generally allotted to Union ministers. He had termed the action "political vendetta" while the Delhi High Court refused to entertain his petition seeking stay of his eviction.
Chowdhury, a Lok Sabha member, had moved the division bench of the HC against the February 1 order of the single bench's order dismissing his plea against the eviction, following which the authorities had disconnected water and power supply to his bungalow at 14, New Moti Bagh.
As a member of Lok Sabha, he is entitled to a Type-6 house. He was allotted alternative accommodation at C-1/99, Moti Bagh by the house committee of Lok Sabha in January, 2015 which he has not accepted.
Chowdhury is not alone in overstaying in government accommodation. The problem was so widespread that the SC entertained a petition on this and heard it for close to a decade before giving out several rulings.
In the final ruling on July 6, 2013, the SC had ruled that ministers and elected representatives in unauthorized occupation of government bungalows, or illegally overstaying in it, would face breach of privilege proceedings in Parliament.
 Sonia and RaGa are already culprits 

Knowing the spread of the malady of unauthorized occupation in all branches of governance -- legislature, executive and judiciary -- the SC had set an example by being unsparing on judges of the SC and high courts and said they must vacate government accommodation within a month of retirement.
For other government servants, it said the department concerned would intimate them about vacation of government quarters three months prior to their retirement. If they didn't heed the notice, they could find their pension reduced in addition to the ignominy of being forcibly evicted.
With the judgment issuing a series of guidelines, the court brought to an end the decade-long proceedings which started with the unauthorized occupation of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation official quarters by a driver and spiralled into a major exercise to evict the high and mighty ensconced for years in sprawling bungalows in New Delhi's Lutyens'

Malaysia’s new national destiny - to become a global kleptocracy?

Image result for US Department of Justice and Malaysia's scandal of scandals
US Department of Justice  and Malaysia's scandal of scandals
Malaysia is once again in the midst of a serious political scandal, with the allegation that the government-run investment company 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) has been used to funnel approximately US$ 700 million to a personal account of Prime Minister Najb Razak.

It is not just Umno but the whole Malaysian nation which had been hit by the 1MDB scandal like being blasted by an atomic bomb, with the crowning ignominy of being regarded worldwide as a “global kleptocracy” as a result the US Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuits to forfeit over US$1 billion assets in the US, UK and Switzerland as a result of US$3.5 billion criminal embezzlement, misappropriation and money-laundering of 1MDB funds.But the catastrophic after-effects of the 1MDB scandal have not ended with the DOJ action as evident from a greater and further loss of national and international confidence in Malaysian governance, when there was no official proactive response to the DOJ complaint despite the mass of details about the criminal conduct and grand larceny of 1MDB-linked funds involving the highest authority in Malaysia, euphemistically referred to as “Malaysian Official 1”.This is on top of the latest developments over the class action suit by ex-prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's former political secretary, Matthias Chang and former PAS leader Husam Musa in the United States against individuals linked to 1MDB.

Against such a backdrop, three recent developments have made it clear that the storms from the “atomic bomb” explosion of the 1MDB scandal will not recede but will continue to haunt and hound Malaysia in the coming months and even years.

Firstly, the refusal of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to re-open investigations into 1MDB;

Secondly, the announcement by the Bank Negara governor Muhammad Ibrahim that there would be no re-opening of investigations against 1MDB despite the damning 136-page DOJ complaint; and

Thirdly, the statement by the new Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad that his main focus is to ensure a civil service which is clean of corruption, misappropriation and power abuse, completely avoiding what should be the greatest challenge of MACC - to purge and save Malaysia from the international ignominy of a global kleptocracy.

The time has come for every Malaysian to know the meaning of kleptocracy - defined as a rule by a thief or thieves

the whole Malaysian nation which had been hit by the 1MDB scandal like being blasted by an “atomic bomb”, with the crowning ignominy of being regarded worldwide as a “global kleptocracy”

1MDB Highlights Need For Institutional Reform of State’s Role in Business
Media commentary on the scandal is full of superlatives, with Financial Times deeming it “biggest financial scandal in [Malaysia’s] modern history.” Danny Quah, writing for the Malaysian Insider, evokes 1MDB as evidence of a Malaysian political system that has lost its moorings after decades of success.
The political firestorm of the 1MDB scandal is real, and has the potential to become one of the most serious threats that the Barisan Nasional regime has ever faced.
But corporate and financial scandals like 1MDB are nothing new in Malaysia’s political economy. Observers of Malaysian politics should take note of the many historical antecedents of today’s scandal, many of which happened during an era described by Quah and others as an era of dynamism, optimism, and economic and political success.
More than 30 years ago, Malaysia was rocked by what opposition veteran Lim Kit Siang called the “scandal of scandals” when Bumiputra Malaysia Finance, a Hong Kong based subsidiary of state-owned Bank Bumiputra Malaysia Berhad, was found to have engaged in a wide range of shady dealings with the Carrian Group, a major player in Hong Kong’s booming property market.
The sordid details include not only imprudent lending to a high-flying connected borrower, but also the murder of a BBMB auditor who questioned the propriety of the loans! The BMF scandal was just one of many cases during Malaysia’s mid-1980s recession in which government-affiliated corporations—founded to create and steward wealth for bumiputeras—rescued connected firms.
Scarcely 10 years later, the Asian Financial Crisis struck Malaysia hard. As is well-known, the regime moved swiftly against its domestic opponents at the same time that it implemented its audacious adjustment package of capital controls and macroeconomic stimulus.
But at the same time, the regime shored up its corporate base as well. Funds from the state pension fund were used to rescue United Engineers (Malaysia) Berhad, which had borrowed to purchase shares in its parent company Renong, which served as a holding company for UMNO corporate assets. BBMB too was bailed out—yes, again—but this time by Khazanah, the government’s investment arm operating under the Ministry of Finance.
Other politically-linked firms found respite from the crisis as well, as Terence Edmund Gomez and Jomo Kwame Sundaram detailed in their magisterial book Malaysia’s Political Economy: Politics, Patronage, and Profits. The crisis saw so many bailouts of so many connected firms using public funds that observers often forget that each one was a significant scandal on its own.
High-level financial scandals in which public funds are used for private gain and corporate welfare are a common feature of Malaysia’s modern political economy. What makes 1MDB so special is that it implicates a politician who has struggled to cultivate an image as sitting above the corruption, graft, nepotism, and crime that are so characteristic of Malaysian politics (the decade-old Altantuya case notwithstanding).
The finding that funds were transferred to a personal account of Najib himself does not help. It strikes most observers as the height of venality to hold, as Minister of Youth and Sports Khairy Jamaluddin recently has, that there is nothing amiss in donations to a ruling party being channeled through a sovereign wealth fund and held in the personal bank account of a sitting Prime Minister.
One reason why Quah finds 1MDB so problematic is that it, for him, it represents the exhaustion of a political and economic order that brought great economic opportunity to ordinarybumiputeras without killing Malaysia’s economic growth. The 1MDB scandal shows how cronies “exploit…for self interest the very instruments designed to help others.” But if Malaysia’s political economy has a long history of scandals like 1MDB, the BN also has a long history of favoring its high-flying allies in the corporate sector.
The active role that the BN regime has played since 1971 in allocating opportunities and directing credit enables such favoritism, and its efforts under the New Economic Policy to expand rapidly the bumiputera corporate sector make it almost inevitable. Already by 1981, scholars such as Lim Mah Hui were able to show that half of all Malay directors of listed firms had political or administrative backgrounds (the figure for non-Malay directors was six per cent).
Yes, Mahathir’s actions as Prime Minister matter for understanding why UMNO politics and Malaysia’s political economy have developed in the way that they have, as Dan Slater has so cogently argued. But the enabling conditions for such scandals are part of the very foundation of the Barisan Nasional (BN) regime’s strategy for durable authoritarian rule. Najib works within the political system that his father, former Prime Minister Tun Razak, helped to create.
The use of public funds to reward and protect corporate allies is endemic to Malaysia’s political economy under the BN. It operates alongside a serious effort to favor bumiputera interests—indeed, to construct these interests through social and economic policies that nurture a particular notion of bumiputera-ism and Malay identity.
In my 2009 book on how the BN survived the Asian Financial Crisis, I termed these policies a “constitutive part of the BN regime.” The great strength of UMNO and the BN is that even with all of its high-level financial scandals, the redistributive machine of the New Economic Policy and its successors continues to function remarkably well.
Understanding this history helps to understand the prospects for reform.  That government-affiliated firms were involved in shady dealings tied to regime elites and their corporate allies 30 years ago does not in any way diminish the seriousness of the 1MDB affair today. That these were symptomatic of the strategy of coalition building, economic development, and regime maintenance pursued since 1971, though, reveals why regulatory reform or political change at the top will be insufficient to prevent the recurrence of future scandals.
Even if Najib succumbs to some challenger within UMNO, that challenger will himself be a product of the same system that produced Najib and his deputies, and will be forced to work within that system as well. Meaningful reform in Malaysia’s political economy requires a more fundamental change to the logic of rule and stability that the BN has pursued since 1971.
For obvious reasons, this is unlikely to come from within the regime. And for proponents of the kind of thoroughgoing regulatory, corporate, and political reform needed to prevent scandals such as 1MDB in coming years, the failure of Malaysia’s opposition coalition could not come at a worse time.zaik naikThe recent obsession of some with FCRA, NGOs is well known. Expectedly, some action under the Foreign Contributions (Regulation) Act, 2010, investigation of some NGOs linked to Zakir Naik/his family is being contemplated. While that may well be necessary, merely relying on this approach is not only likely to lead up the wrong path but may end up obfuscating the real issue. Significant amount of time, energy and public money could end up being wasted. Can such delinquencies be afforded when national security is at risk?

Syed Ali Alhabshee–Jangan bohong dan Tembak Lah
The case of 1MDB illustrates the problem. It is alleged a total of US$7 billion of funds has gone missing. A majority of the misappropriated funds has allegedly flowed to offshore companies. It is also suspected that some of these funds were used to support the ruling coalition’s campaign in the 2013 Malaysia General Election.
The concerns only erupted into a scandal in 2015 when the issue was raised by former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in an internal party fight with Najib. Hundreds of thousands of people then went into the streets to protest, but Najib has so far successfully resisted the call for him to step down. He has also strengthened his position by sacking critics and the attorney general from his government. He was later cleared of any wrongdoing by the new attorney general
Malaysia has a long history of high-level financial scandals, some of them involving the country’s government-linked companies (GLCs). Yet, the recent case of 1MDB is particularly shocking. This is the first time that its sitting Prime Minister ( pic above) is directly implicated.
The 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal in Malaysia which has recently become the subject of a high-profile lawsuit by the United States Department of Justice’s asset recovery initiative highlights the problems with state-ownership in the Malaysian economy. To prevent such scandals from recurring in the future Malaysia must define the role of the government in business and develop adequate institutional arrangements to counter potential abuse by politicians.
Malaysia has a long history of high-level financial scandals, some of them involving the country’sgovernment-linked companies (GLCs). Yet, the recent case of 1MDB is particularly shocking. This is the first time that its sitting Prime Minister is directly implicated.
Prime Minister Najib Razak has vehemently denied the allegations and claimed that the money was a ‘donation’ from the Saudi Royal Family. But the investigation by the US Department of Justice
Research into state ownership has long argued that GLCs are vulnerable to the problems of politicisation, corruption, and rent-seeking, which can cause them to be inefficient and mired in scandal. In Malaysia, GLCs have been used as a tool for politicians to direct benefits to their political supporters or even themselves.
Police say they do not know the purpose for which the money was deposited in the banks. This with due respects is preposterous, to say the least. This is the first, easiest and quickest fact that can be and should have been established.
The investigators will do well to remember that we have in our country something called The Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (FEMA). Its purpose, put simply, is to regulate the use of foreign exchange in India. All transaction in foreign exchange have to necessarily flow through a dealer authorised by the Reserve Bank of India.
Inflow of foreign funds is also within the framework of FEMA. Section 10 of FEMA imposes a duty on the Authorised Dealer (AD) to take necessary declarations & information from the concerned person as will reasonably satisfy the concerned AD that the transaction will not contravene the provisions of FEMA or any rules and regulations made there under. The purpose of inward remittance has to be specified. Any contravention or evasion has to be reported by the AD to RBI.
The Rs 60 crore, reportedly, came in over three years from three countries. There were multiple transactions. Money flowed in through banking channels. And yet the police claim that they do not know the purpose for which the money came. The first persons to be questioned should have been the bank officials. Did they take the necessary declarations, ask the right questions and reasonably satisfy themselves that the inflows were in accordance with the Rules of the land. They would have got multiple opportunities to do this even if they had missed out on an earlier one. The collusion, if any, between the law breakers and law enforcers would have been revealed.
Rs 60 crore is not a small amount by any stretch of imagination. It will be interesting to know what purpose was declared to the bankers by the persons in whose accounts the amounts were credited. Equally interesting will be to know what factors were considered by the bankers to reasonably satisfy themselves that the inflows of this humongous amount were in order.
Lest we lose track of the real issue, the question is not of this specific case or of the Rs 60 crore. The issue is much, much larger and grave: how much such bombs are ticking away endangering our national security.
As students of commerce will recall, we were taught to accept/deposit the inflows first and ask questions later. One sincerely hopes that the banks do not work the same way.
Notwithstanding the importance of the scarce commodity that foreign exchange is, it cannot be allowed to dilute controls by the banks which could endanger national security. Diligent professionals appreciate the distinction between academics and real life. This reassurance is necessary. Only then will we be justified in continuing to bank on the banks. And afford to sleep peacefully content that the security of our great nation is safe.

Excessive State Influence in Business
Malaysia has a long history of high-level financial scandals, but this is the first time a sitting prime minister is directly implicated. Some $7 billion of funds has gone missing from 1MDB. The failure of institutional safeguards to prevent or take action against such irregularities points to major deficiencies within Malaysia’s governance of GLCs.
The failure of institutional safeguards to prevent or take action against such irregularities points to major deficiencies within Malaysia’s governance of GLCs. Six decades of rule by the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the main ruling party in Malaysia, has undermined Malaysia’s democratic institutions. There are now no effective institutional checks and balances on the handling of GLCs by the state and politicians.
Underlying the 1MDB scandal is the problem of excessive state influence in business. It is estimated that GLCs account for approximately 36 per cent of the market capitalisation of Bursa Malaysia and 54 per cent of the benchmark FTSE Bursa Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Composite Index (FBMKLCI). GLCs do not only participate in natural monopolies or strategic industries, but compete with the private sector in highly lucrative businesses such as retail, construction and property development.
In the case of 1MDB, the state-owned investment company also has a huge involvement in property development, through the projects of Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) and Bandar 1Malaysia. These projects were particularly controversial because the land was sold to 1MDB at a very low price by the government. Critics argued that the land should instead have been auctioned publicly and that the projects could be handled more effectively and efficiently by private companies.
Although the government embarked on a GLC transformation program in 2004 and committed to divest their non-core holdings and non-competitive assets in 2010, its influence in Malaysian business has never really faded. On the contrary, as argued by Malaysian economist Dr. Edmund Terence Gomez, there is increasingly an ‘extreme concentration of powers by the executive’. To prevent future scandals Malaysia should curb the excessive role of the state in business and put in place institutional mechanisms that subject politicians to proper checks and balances.
There are increasing discussions at a global level, particularly by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), regarding which institutional governance frameworks can best regulate the state in its handling of GLCs while also improving their performance and accountability.
Malaysia should consider adopting the OECD guidelines on corporate governance of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) to benchmark itself against the world’s best practices. The guidelines recommend a clear separation between the state’s ownership function and regulatory function, which is currently lacking, particularly in the 1MDB case where the prime minister is the ultimate decision-maker.
Both the state and GLCs must also observe a higher standard of transparency. A clear and consistent ownership policy should be established to define the overall objective of state ownership and the state’s role in corporate governance. This move must also be complemented by wider reform in Malaysia’s democratic system. The problem goes beyond the current prime minister. Lasting reform will require ensuring free and fair elections and a true separation of powers between executive, legislative and judiciary branches as well as strengthening the independence of key institutions, including the central bank and the Attorney- General’s Office.
Comprehensive institutional reform is necessary to restore public confidence. But this process is expected to be difficult given the deep influence that the ruling party holds within the different branches of government.

Zahra Haider Pakistanis watch more porn privately than any other nation in the world

 Desi Indian Boobs Nude Pics and Indian Sex Pics Collection

Zahra Haider’s real crime is that she’s been candid about her love life and worse, found her Pakistani lovers wanting
Earlier this week, a young Pakistani woman wrote a candid piece online about her premarital sex life in Islamabad. Alleging that Pakistanis watch more porn privately than any other nation in the world (she didn’t quote her sources) while publicly maintaining a fa├žade of piety, she took them to task for being a bunch of sexually repressed hypocrites. She didn’t just dole it out, she was pretty forthright about herself. She listed the number of partners she’d had (a dozen by the age of 19) and described the location of her trysts (cars, expensive hotel rooms, and once her boyfriend’s father’s office which had an attached bedroom – your surprise is not unmerited).
But she didn’t have a great time because of all the secrecy, lies and subterfuge involved. And the fact that her partners were an unadventurous, boring lot.
She had the gumption to write all this under her own name: Zahra Haider. Miss Haider currently lives in Canada where she is dating non-judgmental, non-Pakistani men and having, by her own account, a fulfilling experience.
Meanwhile in her home country, the proverbial s*** has hit the fan. Her compatriots — most of them men, I must add — have spewed their fury, outrage and disgust in a stream of abusive tweets. Admittedly a few have also maintained that her private life is her own business. I won’t go into what some have threatened to do to her but suffice it to say she has been denounced for all manner of sins. She’s a liar. She’s a slut. She’s brought shame to her family.
Shame to her name. Shame to the nation. (Funny how any number of factual reports of child abuse, gang rapes and honour killings don’t bring the nation into disrepute but one woman’s personal views on sex between consenting adults disgrace us all.) No doubt it’s only a matter of time before Miss Haider is also accused of being a traitor. Obviously she’s been put up to it for some vast but undisclosed sum by the enemies of our nation to ‘show us in bad light’. Obviously she should promptly pack her bags and shove off to the decadent, immoral West where she so clearly belongs. Were she not already there.
By far the weirdest accusation being hurled at her comes from a fervent supporter of Imran Khan’s opposition party, PTI. In a truly bizarre stretch of the imagination, this particular rant holds PML-N,
the ruling party, responsible for the shame heaped upon the nation by Miss Haider’s shocking disclosures. Why? Because she was once the class fellow of Maryam Nawaz, the Prime Minister’s daughter. Yes, go figure.
Quite clearly, Miss Haider has become a lightning rod for all sorts of ugly prejudices, insecurities and anxieties. It is worth stressing that what she says in her article is hardly revelatory. We all know that there’s plenty of pre- and extra-marital sex around, and has been forever. That we like to deny its existence for reasons of honour or propriety is no secret either. In providing her own evidence, Ms Haider has made clear the disconnect there. All she’s asked for, really, is more openness and honesty.
I can see why her demand has discomfited many. She’s asking for a fundamental change in societal attitude, one that goes against millennia of custom and tradition. When that change involves women, men go ballistic. If any evidence were needed simply consider the bitter opposition to the Punjab’s protection bill for women. But I suspect Miss Haider’s real crime is that she’s made so bold as to talk of her love life openly and worse, found her Pakistani lovers wanting.
The depressing fact is that men the world over resent outspoken, confident women. The Guardian newspaper recently ran a survey in Britain investigating online abuse experienced by its writers and discovered that female columnists, particularly non-white female columnists, were subjected to much greater, much nastier trolling than their male counterparts. Had Miss Haider’s article been penned by a man, I’m convinced it would not have generated half as much controversy as it has. But because she’s a woman, and a desi woman at that, she must be put in her place. Misogyny is rampant everywhere but online it is out of control.
Though it pains me to admit it, I’m not surprised by the viciousness. For that matter, Ms Haider couldn’t have lived in Pakistan for 19 years and not known that. But she wrote it any way. So kudos to her.

True story based on the high profile 1MDB

this exclusive article by syed ibrahim
“based on true story  based on the  high profile heist, 
A message went out from  Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali office: you provoke us at your peril, no matter what the collateral damage. We play piped music before one trapped cobra and call it an opera. Then we fall asleep at our own show.It is both easy and pointless to blame the government. Every government keeps a thermometer in its holster and calibrates its decibel levels according to ground temperature. If it’s warm, it will blow hot,Our Malaysian response to a scandalous mess is neat and categorised. Cash and sex are the north and south pole of mass interest, each with a sprawling magnetic field. We divide the hemispheres with the equator of logic. Cash and corruption are the preserve of politics. Sex is the province of glamour. We refuse to recognise any cross-over evidence

Why we Malaysians are such suckers for all sorts of conmen Is Malaysia going to pieces?
a trauma turns into a struggle between anger and amnesia. It is a no-contest. Amnesia wins every time.explains the callous indifference to the perpetrators of crime evasion was prelude to escape local wrath. Over time, even the noise has become a passing perfunctoryThe ebb from outrage to rage, its decline to umbrage, and then a drift to amnesia is the narrative of the 12 months Our unstated reason has been that action against Najib,  new media. has done some moving reportage of in the last few days. It would be interesting to find out, possibly through market research, whether the readers of the nation’s most powerful newspaper have been moved at all.
the Swiss also tell us that there is misappropriation of money. All of these are linked with 1MDB and invariable to one man, the chief fundraiser, and with his private bank accounts. The PM has a credibility deficit as do you, Mr AG.there is a deficiency in our law.disputed that might argue that there is no law that says that the receipt of a donation from a foreign source is illegal. The motive of the “donation” is definitely important if the recipient is the PM.By receiving such a huge sum will certainly make the PM feel obliged to the donor, and what the donor wants in return can be detrimental to the interest of the country.No one gives such huge sum for nothing and this is the reason why the people want to know the motive of the “donation”.Apandi, your answer is naive. If a person has billions, certainly there is no problem for him to give away RM2.6 billion, but it is certainly a big problem if the recipient is a PM, regardless of its purpose
have to accept that Arabia is the source of various fables, from Ali Baba and quite deservedly the Forty Thieves to Sinbad the Sailor to The Arabian Nights.
But now,Malaysin will be impressed and no doubt titillated to learn that you, without the least shame, guilt, and self-respect, are the author of the latest tale of wonder.under that Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act “gratification” means “money, donation, gift, loan, fee, reward, valuable security, property or interest in property being property of any description whether movable or immovable, financial benefit, or any other similar advantage”.It is clear that donation comes under the meaning of gratification as defined by the Act. To dismiss it as easily as you did makes you look incompetent.

a traffic cop in the fairy-tale town of Swat had booked a car speeding through its bazaar, NATO troops could have left Pakistan by 2003, Iraq might have escaped NATO’s invasion, Barack Obama would probably be an unknown Senator from Chicago and George Bush Junior’s presidential library in Texas would certainly have something to cheer about. But, according to Maryam, her husband Ibrahim al-Kuwaiti “quickly settled the matter”, and the bribed Swat cop never realized he had just let Osama bin Laden escape. Maryam was giving evidence before the Justice Javed Iqbal commission, set up to enquire into the events of 2 May 2011, when US Navy Seals flew three hours into Pak territory, found and killed Osama. Nothing works on our great subcontinent better than instant cash. Al-Kuwati, Osama’s most trust aide, knew that. This is the kind of authentic detail which makes a fabulous story so entirely believable.

In the great toss-up between perception and evidence, the former generally wins. Conventional wisdom, for instance,Apandi says donations are not illegal under Malaysian law.
