WARNING about vaccines and the current vaccination schedule

WARNING about vaccines and the current vaccination schedule

vaccines-chronic-illness

At no other time in history have so many vaccines been required within the United States vaccination schedule. According to statistics at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 10 million vaccines – many of which contain aluminum (a known neurotoxin) – are given to infants every year. But, there are many underreported statistics that are quite disturbing.
For example, the National Vaccine Information Center reports that nearly $3.6 billion has been awarded to children and parents for vaccine injuries to date – making it clear that adverse effects are a reality. In light of these facts, it has never been more important to examine the safety and effectiveness of vaccines in order to make an informed decision about your health.
Discover the suppressed truth about vaccine safety on the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman and noted vaccine safety activist Barbara Loe Fisher – as we uncover the shocking truths about our current vaccination schedule. Knowing that there are hundreds of new vaccines under development (right now), it has never been more important to get the whole story. Don’t miss this important show.

Aluminum used as an adjuvant in vaccines can have dire physical and psychological consequences

Simply put: aluminum – which is routinely added to vaccines in order to ‘stimulate’ the body’s immune response to the antigen – is a neurotoxin. There is no good reason to ever have any amount of this destructive substance in the body. And, we currently put this chemical element in vaccines for hepatitis A and B, DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis), and HPV (Gardasil) – among others.
According to a study published in Current Medical Chemistry, children up to 6 months of age receive 14.7 to 49 times more aluminum from vaccines than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration safety limits allow.
While mainstream medicine continues to insist aluminum in vaccines is “safe,” independent scientific research is telling a very different tale.
Experts say that aluminum adjuvants can travel from the injection site to the brain, where they enter neurons and glial cells. This gives them the potential to induce serious immunological disorders, including problems with autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications. Chronic immune activation in the brain is a major cause of brain dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
One study, in the peer-reviewed journal Pediatrics, noted that aluminum is now being implicated as interfering with cellular and metabolic processes in the nervous system. In addition, aluminum interferes with the body’s ability to excrete toxins such as mercury – while impairing the synthesis of glutathione, a major antioxidant and detoxifier. Most people are seriously misinformed about the dangers – which is why I think the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour is so important for all of us.

Know the health risks BEFORE you vaccinate

Barbara Loe Fisher, president and co-founder of NVIC, notes that “vaccination is a medical intervention performed on a healthy person that has the inherent ability to result in the injury or death of that healthy person.”
Before deciding whether or not to vaccinate your child, Fisher maintains it is essential to know the risks of the disease and vaccine, your child’s current health status, and whether your child has any history of adverse reactions, allergies, immune system reactions or neurological problems.
Fisher advises keeping a written record of exactly which vaccines your child received, including the manufacturer’s name and vaccine lot number.
And, any vaccine reaction symptoms should be reported to VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Possible symptoms include pronounced swelling, redness, hardness or heat at the site of the injection; rashes or hives; shock; collapse; extreme sleepiness; weakness; paralysis; loss of eye contact; social withdrawal; head banging or repetitive movements such as flapping or rocking; and high fever.
All serious, dramatic changes in physical, mental or emotional behavior should be written down and described in detail, Fisher notes. Bottom line: we all need the facts to make an informed decision about our health.
For more information on vaccine safety and facts underreported by the mainstream media and Western medicine – join us for the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, this Sunday.
This week’s guest: Barbara Loe Fisher, one of the world’s leading non-medical, consumer advocacy experts on vaccine safety
Discover the truth about vaccines safety and effectiveness – Sun. Sept. 3
Barbara Loe Fisher, advocate, consumer representative and author, is a respected leader of a national grassroots movement and public information campaign to institute vaccine safety reforms and informed consent protections in public health policies. The co-author of the book “DPT: A Shot in the Dark” and author of “The Consumer’s Guide to Childhood Vaccines,” and “Vaccines, Autism and Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic,” Fisher is a video commentator for the NVIC Newsletter.
In addition, she has worked with Congress to include vaccine safety provisions in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and has led demonstrations at both the CDC and the White House. She has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Time and Newsweek, and has the distinction of debating more doctors on the subject of vaccination than any other American. Her interest in vaccine safety reform dates back to 1980, when her oldest son suffered a convulsion, collapse and brain inflammation within hours of his fourth DPT shot and was left with multiple learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder.

Hurricane Harvey - a “weather terrorism” weapon

Hurricane Harvey was engineered, “steered” toward Houston as a “weather terrorism” weapon


 

Image: “Weather wars” theorists claim Hurricane Harvey was engineered, “steered” toward Houston as a “weather terrorism” weapon
 
We’re bringing this claim to your attention because a growing number of observers, websites and analysts are concluding that Hurricane Harvey was “engineered” and made into a “weather weapon” through a combination of ground-based temperature manipulation tools and “chemtrail” seeding.
Yes, it sounds absurd at first, until you realize that Al Gore tells us that human activity controls the climate every day. It’s called “climate change,” and in fact, Al Gore and the climate alarmists directly tell us that we created Hurricane Harvey and all the other “extreme” weather events anyone sees. Weather modification, in other words, has become the de facto belief of climate alarmists. The entire mainstream media routinely insists that hurricanes, droughts, floods, snowstorms and tornadoes are all unintentionally created by human activity.
The key difference between Al Gore and the “weather wars” theories is that those who believe in weather wars insist these hurricanes are deliberately created, selectively amplified and steered into selected targets. Al Gore believes hurricanes are created by Man, in other words, and the weather wars theorists say they are precisely controlled and deployed as weapons of terrorism to inflict economic damage and achieve psychological goals involving terror and death.
This claim seems absurd to most people at first glance, but there is a growing community of weather skeptics who insist that such events are not accidents but weapons. That’s why we’re covering this story: Not as an endorsement of such conclusions but rather as a look at a curious corner of the internet where weather wars, weather modification and geoengineering have become popular, alternative explanations for significant weather events. In fact, there are at least two key patents (linked below) that describe this technology in great detail, including a “space-based power system” that can alter “weather elements” including hurricanes. (Keep reading for details…)
One of the most popular sites asserting such claims is WeatherWar101.com, whose author — a former network engineer — explains:
For ten years, I have been proving the irrefutable reality of daily manufactured flash flood deluge and severe weather – every single day. Denying the reality of these daily manmade weather events is akin to denying the existence of the combustion engine, and it is just as easy to prove. If you can understand boiling water, you can understand where trillions of gallons of water vapor come from that create and fuel the daily trillion-gallon floods we see washing a different community away, somewhere in the world. This isn’t debatable, and it is as easy to observe as sunrise.
Unless I have the names mixed up, the author seems to go by the name of “Sofia Smallstorm” (to avoid being identified by name, of course) and goes to great lengths to protect his or her identity. This person also wrote the foreward to No Natural Weather: Introduction to Geoengineering 101.
The site has published a 14-minute analysis of Hurricane Harvey, asserting that the hurricane was augmented by “On-Land Water Vapor Generation from Texas, Louisiana, etc.” The video description also states, “It’s also no coincidence that Hurricane Harvey is hitting the United States, 25 years to the day after Hurricane Andrew hit Florida. Since all of these storms are very clearly and very obviously deliberated manufactured, this “Anniversary Hurricane” was clearly intentional.”

Another video from APlaneTruth.info offers a more detailed explanation of “weather geoengineering” phenomena and how they say it relates to Hurricane Harvey, citing numerous patents, weather control conference, military technology and so on:

Do water vapor generators exist that can unleash clouds?

The idea of land-based water vapor generators that could contribute any meaningful amount of water to Hurricane Harvey seems absurd to those who have never looked into all this. According to recent estimates, Hurricane Harvey dumped 11 trillion gallons of water on Houston and surrounding areas. For any land-based machinery to contribute even 1/1000th of that volume — just 11 billion gallons of water — would take a massive fleet of mechanized water vapor generators burning through an enormous quantity of fuel or electricity. That seems unrealistic by any rational analysis.
Yet as the BBC video shows in the following video clip (starting at 15:12), there do exists large buildings that literally generate massive clouds and rainfall. Before I saw this video, even I had no idea such buildings existed. Watch the BBC explain:

Despite the existence of the technology, it is difficult to imagine the existence of such a massive operation operating covertly. That’s why the existence of a large-scale water vapor generating network seems highly unlikely. Besides, solar power does all that work for free by warming the oceans and evaporating water into the storm system. Trying to augment 11 trillion gallons of water evaporation carried out by the sun seems futile. The forces of nature are so much larger than anything mankind can contribute to them that supposing we can generate massive storm systems seems rather unlikely.
At the same time, so does the idea that human activity can drastically alter Earth’s climate in the first place. Despite all the hysteria and fear mongering of the climate change alarmists, human activity is nothing but a tiny sliver of contribution to the grand-scale phenomena driven by solar activity, volcanoes and other such events.

Weather modification technology does exist (read these patents to see for yourself)

There’s no question, by the way, that weather modification technology exists and is in widespread use across the globe. Weather control advocates are currently citing this U.S. patent #20100074390 A1, titled, “Method for weather modification and vapor generator for weather modification.”
As the patent summary states:
A nuclear fusion reactor (2) or nuclear fission reactor (22) is used as a heat source. A heat exchanger (11 or 37) that contains water to be heated (15) is used for water vapor generation. A circulating pipe (10 or 26) through which a fluid for cooling the nuclear fusion reactor or nuclear fission reactor or for conducting heat exchange circulates is disposed so as to extend in the heat exchanger and be in contact with the water to be heated. Water vapor is thus generated. This water vapor is jetted toward the sky at a state of collimation through a vapor discharge pipe (12 or 36). A cloud for blocking sunlight is formed in the sky from the water vapor jetted to reduce the temperature of the earth surface. This enables a weather modification without discharging any greenhouse gas, e.g., CO2.
Another U.S. patent (#20100224696 A1) is entitled, “Weather management using space-based power system.” It describes a space-based technology for generating and controlling hurricanes:
Space-based power system and method of altering weather using space-born energy. The space-based power system maintains proper positioning and alignment of system components without using connecting structures. Power system elements are launched into orbit, and the free-floating power system elements are maintained in proper relative alignment, e.g., position, orientation, and shape, using a control system. Energy from the space-based power system is applied to a weather element, such as a hurricane, and alters the weather element to weaken or dissipate the weather element. The weather element can be altered by changing a temperature of a section of a weather element, such as the eye of a hurricane, changing airflows, or changing a path of the weather element.
Weather modification technology isn’t a conspiracy theory, either: It’s already in use! For example, this article from SingularityHub describes Dubai’s “weather wizards” and how they use advanced electronics to create rain. It’s not a conspiracy theory; it’s just clever physics:
Meteo Systems, a Swiss company [is] developing a technology they’ve dubbed Weathertec. The idea is to erect giant ionizers wherever you’d like to have some rain. If the ambient humidity in the area reaches the required minimum of 30%, then you turn the ionizers on and start pumping electrons into the atmosphere. Assuming that you have high temperatures, the electrons will rise with the heat and water molecules will start condensing around them. At this point, you have clouds that will produce rain once they are dense enough.
Adding to the intrigue of all this, Bill Gates announced serious funding for “seawater-spraying cloud machines” designed to generate rain-producing weather systems for targeted communities. As Inhabitat.com explains:
The Microsoft founder recently announced plans to invest $300,000 into research at the University of Calgary for unique solutions and responses to climate change. Part of that research included lab tests on machines that suck up seawater and spray it into the air, seeding white clouds that reflect rays of sunlight away from Earth. Silver Lining’s floating machines can suck up ten tons of water per second. If all goes well, Silver Lining plans to test the process with 10 ships spread throughout 3800 square miles of ocean.
By the way, that was seven years ago, in 2010. Do such weather-generating fleets already exist? If so, they’ve been kept very quiet.
Another popular site that reports on Geoengineering, by the way, is Geoengineering Watch by Dane Wigington. Very informative and interesting. Check it out.

The history of hurricanes shows that Mother Nature generates them without any human engineering at all

Creating rainfall, however, is a far cry from generating a hurricane and steering it onto an intended target. That idea would likely be considered outlandish by meteorologists and scientists. The far more likely explanation, of course, is that the coriolus effect — a derivative of a spinning globe — causes rotational forces in the atmosphere that spin storm systems one way in the Northern hemisphere and the opposite way in the Southern hemisphere. (That’s why hurricanes look like opposites of each other when comparing Northern vs. Southern hemisphere storms.) Solar-heated ocean water results in large-scale water evaporation, saturating the air with vapor. That vapor condenses due to changes in temperature or pressure, causing the formation of water droplets which are now heavier than air and therefore fall to the ground. With enough solar energy, natural forces can generate truly catastrophic storms.
To think that every major storm is a “weather weapon” generated by a nefarious operation seems far-fetched to me. But then again, so does Al Gore and all his nonsense prognostications from his quack science Church of Climatology. Nevertheless, “altering” or “steering” hurricanes is technically a far easier task than generating them wholesale. What some of the weather wars people are saying is not that the hurricanes are generated wholly by artificial systems but rather that they are “steered” or “influenced” in terms of their direction or intensity. Is that really possible? Multiple patents obviously say it is, and the U.S. patent office didn’t reject those patents, interestingly.
On the other side of the argument, history has recorded dozens of hurricanes striking Gulf Coast regions over the last century. Most of these hurricanes took place long before the rise of modern technology or exotic weather modification capabilities. So how are all these hurricanes explained? (Answer: Natural phenomena.)

Conclusion: Keep asking questions and stay curious, but also think critically

My conclusion in all this? Creative, critical thinking is a healthy practice, and I always encourage people to keep asking questions and challenge official explanations for everything. We do know we’re all constantly lied to by the fake news media about almost everything, from vaccines to economics to history. And don’t forget the “Russia! Russia! Russia!” conspiracy theory that’s been pushed by the fake news media for the last 18 months, based on absolutely nothing but faked sources and shoddy journalism.
If there’s anything I can say about the weather wars websites and commentators, it’s that I applaud all efforts to challenge current paradigms with clear thinking, and I readily admit I’m no expert in weather modification technology. Perhaps there are things I will learn in the future that will change my own view on this subject. Until then, I hope to encourage critical thinking about everything, which means that I don’t believe anything by default.
The mainstream media is lying to us all the time. Most of what’s labeled “mainstream science” is often just a consensus collection of corporation-induced lies. Mainstream medicine is a corruption racket shrouded in fake science and media propaganda. You are right to question everything for the simple reason that almost everything you’re told is complete bulls##t. Yet that doesn’t justify believing every alternative theory, either. You need to think critically about which theories you believe vs. reject. For example, I’ve publicly stated that the Flat Earth theorists are flat-out wrong (although they do offer a fun thought experiment to play with). I also think Ray Kurzweil’s singularity is a misguided pipe dream rooted in self-delusion and an unhealthy God complex.
Can hurricanes be artificially generated in totality? Almost certainly not. Can they be steered into intended targets? It seems incredibly unlikely, but within the realm of technical feasibility. Does weather modification technology exist? Absolutely, yes. But that doesn’t mean that every weather event is a nefarious plot. We live on a dynamic, chaotic planet that’s home to all sorts of bizarre natural phenomena. Although I know as a fact that the status quo can fake the news, brainwash the masses and pull off massive false flag events, I very much doubt they can fake entire hurricanes.
Do you have a different take on all this? Do your research. Think critically. Don’t believe everything you read, view or hear. Most importantly, make up your own mind and don’t let the establishment tell you what’s true, because the establishment is lying to you about almost everything.

Warning Signs of Dehydration


11 Warning Signs of Dehydration
Our bodies are complex machines that need taking care of and regular maintenance just like a car does. Just like a car needs oil, our bodies require water to be able to function.
Water is essential to our bodies. It is an essential supplement to consume, and without it, things will start to go south. When you become dehydrated a whole world of side effects are imposed on you. Dehydration can be the root of all evils, and even the most complicated of health issues can be solved by simply increasing your water intake. Most people these days are not consuming adequate water amounts. It might even be why we are so unhealthy. Did you know that 25% of all kids and teenagers don’t include water in their fluid intake at all? Yeah: it’s that bad. No wonder we are all so unhealthy.
Like I said before, water is essential to any part of good health. If you are dehydrated you will experience side effects like no other health issue. If you are not regularly consuming water it puts you at risk for basically every health issue.Think you’re not drinking enough water? Check out these 11 signs of dehydration you might let slip past you.
Via
Bad Breath – Sometimes bad breath can be an indicator of a poor water intake. If you aren’t getting enough water you will be able to tell by your breath. If brushing your teeth does not take care of the breath issue, then try increasing your water intake.
Dry Skin – Dry skin is a major sign of dehydration, and I’m sure you can see why. With little hydration, our body has to properly utilize the little bit of water it has. Sadly, our skin gets left out because it needs it more for other organs.
Muscle Cramps – “The hotter you get, the more likely you are to get muscle cramps, and that’s a pure heat effect on the muscles. As the muscles work harder and harder, they can seize up from the heat itself. Changes in the electrolytes, changes in the sodium and potassium can lead to muscle cramping as well,” according to John Higgins, MD.
Fever and Chills – If your body is severely dehydrated you will experience major fever and chills. Cold sweats are a huge side effect of dehydration.
Food Cravings – If you are waking up during the night craving a twinkie like a primal animal something probably isn’t right. Sweet cravings, and salty cravings are both side effects of severe dehydration.
Headaches – Dehydration can cause headaches because your brain sits in fluid to keep it from hitting your skull. The fluid sac your brain sits in can become depleted from dehydration, thus causing headaches.
Dark Yellow Urine – When you are dehydrated you will not be using the bathroom very frequently. Also, when you finally do use the bathroom your urine is a dark yellow and even almost brown sometimes.
Your Back and Joints Hurt – Aches and pains are major signs that you are dehydrated. If you are experiencing constant aches and pains, especially in your back, you might be dehydrated. This is because our body’s cartilage is made up of over 80% water.
High Blood Pressure – High blood pressure is a sign of dehydration because your blood becomes thicker, making it harder to pump around the body.
High Cholesterol – A lack of hydration will also cause your cholesterol to spike. This is because there is no fluid replacement for salt and other substances we consume.
You Can’t Think Clearly – Mass dehydration will even cause you to become confused. If you just feel like you aren’t thinking like yourself you might be dehydrated. It can even cause your brain to shrink.
 
 
 

Vitamin C may stop the progression of leukemia, study reveals

High dose vitamin C may stop the progression of leukemia, study reveals

 

iv-vitamin-cThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that leukemia – cancer of the blood and bone marrow – claimed 23,564 lives in 2014 alone. Now, exciting new research shows that a six-month regimen of high-dose intravenous vitamin C slowed the progression of leukemia by stopping leukemic cells from multiplying.
The study builds upon other research that demonstrates vitamin C’s potential to inhibit and even kill cancer cells – without harming healthy tissue. Let’s take a closer look at how vitamin C is demonstrating its amazing potential to fight cancer.

Vitamin C stimulates a vital cancer-fighting enzyme

In leukemia, white blood cells fail to mature, so they regenerate themselves and multiply uncontrollably – a process that stops the body from producing the mature white blood cells needed by the immune system to fight infections. Researchers have discovered that a gene mutation plays a major role in the development of many cases of leukemia.
50 percent of patients with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, 30 percent of patients with pre-leukemia and 10 percent of acute myeloid leukemia patients have a genetic disorder that decreases amounts of TET2 – a vital enzyme that helps undifferentiated cells mature into normal blood cells. This TET2 gene mutation accounts for 42,500 cancers yearly in the United States.
The new study, conducted at Perlmutter Cancer Center at New York University Langone Health and published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Cell, examined vitamin C’s potential to stimulate TET2 – and the results were encouraging.

Genetically restoring TET2 blocks replication of cancer cells and safely kills them

The researchers found that intravenous high-dose vitamin C helps restore TET2 function, causing “faulty” stem cells in bone marrow to die off.
Vitamin C produced results when it was used on human leukemia cells carrying the TET2 mutation – and it also stopped the growth of transplanted leukemia cancer stem cells in mice that had been genetically engineered to lack TET2.
The vitamin achieved this effect by promoting DNA demethylation in the cancerous cells. Researchers also found that combining vitamin C with PARP inhibitors – drugs which cause cancer cell death – improved its effectiveness even more. In fact, vitamin C seemed to have a potentiating effect, making the leukemic cells more vulnerable to the PARP inhibitors.
Study author Benjamin Neel, Ph.D., noted that the team was excited by the prospect that high-dose vitamin C might become a “safe treatment for blood diseases caused by TET2-deficient leukemia stem cells, most likely in combination with other targeted therapies.” Neel called for preclinical and clinical trials to test high-dose intravenous vitamin C in human patients – and for further research to identify other substances that might help to potentiate the vitamin C treatment.
Researchers are particularly hopeful that using vitamin C with cancer drugs could provide an alternative to toxic chemotherapy – which can be dangerous and even fatal to patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
Note: The researchers used extremely high dosages of intravenous vitamin C in the study – amounts that would be impossible to obtain by oral ingestion alone.

Amazing NEWS: Vitamin C has outperformed approved clinical and experimental drugs

Other recent, peer-reviewed research is blazing exciting new inroads into the area of potential uses of this powerful vitamin to stop cancer.
In a study newly published in Oncotarget, researcher found that high-dose vitamin C stopped tumors cold by impairing cancer stem cell metabolism and interfering with their ability to grow and spread.
Researchers noted that the nutrient worked as a pro-oxidant in cancer cells – stripping them of the antioxidant glutathione and producing oxidative stress and apoptosis, or cell death. In addition, vitamin C interfered with glycolysis, the process that creates energy in cell mitochondria.
And, while lethal to cancer cells, it left healthy cells unaffected.
The researchers concluded that vitamin C was a “promising new agent,” and called for more study to explore its use in preventing and slowing tumors.
The team also reported that vitamin C outperformed seven different substances, including stiripinol – an FDA-approved clinical drug – and various experimental medications. Researchers noted that vitamin C was 1,000 times – that’s right, 1,000 times – more effective in combating cancer stem cells than 2-DG, an experimental pharmaceutical drug.
(It is hard to understand why these eye-opening results have received so little attention from mainstream medicine. Especially in light of the fact that – unlike toxic chemotherapy drugs – this essential vitamin has caused few side effects in clinical studies.)
But, I think we can quickly see how this news might be threatening to the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.
The fact is: conventional medicine has long downplayed or ignored promising vitamin C research. But, as forward-thinking, innovative researchers continue to examine vitamin C’s many benefits, its potential to combat cancer may yet be recognized.

Kit Siang's advice to the MACC chief

Kit Siang's advice to the MACC chief

  
MP SPEAKS | MACC chief Dzulkifli Ahmad has been in the eye of the storm in the last three days since issuing a very public ultimatum to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, that he will face civil or criminal action if he refuses to make an open apology within 48 hours for his comments on the detention of Penang exco member Phee Boon Poh.
This is the first time in the 60-year Malaysian history where the head of a national agency had issued a public ultimatum to a chief minister, menteri besar or a cabinet minister that he should apologise within 48 or face civil or criminal action.
Clearly, Dzulkifli wants to act as prosecutor, jury and judge all at the same time.
If Dzulkifili’s unprecedented action is to mark the MACC’s coming-of-age to become an anti-corruption agency without fear or favour, like its counterpart in Hong Kong and Singapore operating in an environment where even presidents and prime ministers can be impeached, prosecuted or toppled for corruption like in South Korea or Pakistan, it would be a welcome development.
But apparently, it is not so.
In actual fact, Dzulkifli’s public ultimatum to Guan Eng casts doubt on the independence, impartiality and professionalism of the MACC, as it raises the question whether the MACC is hand-in-glove with the prime minister or the top government leadership to persecute or discriminate against the Pakatan Harapan opposition while trying to give the impression of independence of action to fight corruption so long as it does not touch the Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, the international multi-billion dollar 1MDB money-laundering scandal or Malaysia’s new-found infamy and ignominy of being regarded worldwide as a global kleptocracy.
I advise Dzukifli to learn from Rahim Noor’s lesson and not to fall victim to hubris or “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” complex.
Yesterday, former inspector-general of police Rahim Noor said he had paid his dues with jail time and a fine over Anwar Ibrahim’s black eye 18 years ago.
He said there was no need for PAS leaders to raise the matter of Anwar’s black eye as the incident was long past.
I agree that Rahim Noor had paid his dues on Anwar’s black eye with jail time and a fine, as well as an ignominious end of his distinguished public service career as IGP, and it is rather churlish for anyone to raise the issue just to shut Rahim up when he spoke on matters of national import.
But the rise and fall of Rahim Noor should be a lesson for all public officers, who rose to the peak of their public careers.
Rahim was a very professional police officer who rose to the zenith of his career when appointed as inspector-general of police, but he allowed hubris and the “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” complex to cloud his judgement as to make the biggest mistake of his public career in the Anwar Ibrahim “black eye” incident.
Lord Acton’s axiom that “power tends to corrupt and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely” must be a constant watchword for all top public officers if they are not to make the Rahim Noor mistake resulting in abuse and misuse of temporary power.
Dzukifli would profit on reflecting on Lord Acton’s axiom in the case of his public ultimatum to Guan Eng as he seems to be making the mistakes which fell Rahim Noor.
In this connection, Dzulkifli knows that the greatest Achilles’ heel of MACC under his stewardship is the MACC’s failure to rise up to the challenge posed by the 1MDB scandal.
In January 2016, the new attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali cleared Najib of any criminal wrongdoing in the case involving a "donation" from the Middle East, as well as that involving SRC International and said that the US$681 million in Najib’s personal bank accounts were a “personal donation from the Saudi royal family which was given to him without any consideration”.
Dzukifli was Apandi’s right-hand man at the attorney-general press conference clearing Najib.
Six months later, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) filed kleptocratic civil suits, which finally resulted in a 251-page litigation for the forfeiture of US$1.7 billion 1MDB-linked assets in the United States, United Kingdom and Switzerland from the US$4.5 billion 1MDB money laundering and embezzlement.
From Paragraphs 339 to 348 of the DOJ suit, it traced the money trail of the RM2.6 billion (or US$681 million) in Najib’s personal accounts, establishing they were stolen 1MDB funds – the accounts, amounts and dates of the various transactions to show from where the monies came from before they were deposited into Najib’s personal bank accounts, where the monies from Najib’s accounts went to, and the further destination of these monies ending up in the money laundering for jewellery, expensive art work and luxury properties.

The DOJ kleptocratic suits started in July 2016 proved that Apandi’s claim in January 2016 that the US$681 million came from a “personal donation” from the Saudi royal family was untrue.
There is no doubt that if the target of the investigation had been Mahathir Mohamad, Anwar Ibrahim, Mohamad Sabu or myself, this new evidence uncovered six months after the attorney-general’s public disclosure of “no criminal wrongdoing” would be regarded as a compelling ground to re-open investigations.
But such re-opening of investigation in the light of compelling new evidence over Najib’s RM2.6 billion donation and 1MDB scandal was not done whether by the attorney-general or the MACC.
Can Dzulfifli explain the reason for such inaction?

LIM KIT SIANG is the DAP parliamentary leader and Gelang Patah MP.
