GOD

I believe in God. but…..

Yesterday I saw a remarkable statement from a woman on social media.
She say: She believe in God, but not in any church or religion.
She make there a point to think about !

I think also the same. God and a church or religion are not related.
People has do that.

When you look at al the believers and religions that is a big mess.
The made from there religions big business

Look at the Catholic church with their Vatican, it is one big mafia organization.
With a fake nazi Pope (and a hidden black pope)
Over centuries the murder people. (Holy wars)

Islam is also fake, the rape, use children and are war criminals.

Buddhism, I have learned and see, it is also a money religion.
Monk owns helicopters and expensive cars, all from poor people there money.
Temples full of gold, where come the money from, from poor people.
And the most worse is the keep the people stupid.

The statement yesterday give a lot to think about.

GOD IS LOVE: you see that today on the world ?
All get used by wrong (elite) people.

I will pray to God, but not to any fake church or religion.

Bangkok, Suspects ‘re-enact’ bombing

Re-Enact

TWO PRIME suspects in the Erawan Shrine bomb attack that killed 20 and injured more than 100 people re-enacted the crime at 19 key spots in Bangkok yesterday.

Adem Karadag, or Bilal Muhammed, who was the first suspect arrested in connection with the August 17 attack in an apartment in Min Buri, and Mieraili Yusufu, the second suspect arrested at the beginning of this month near the Cambodia border at Sa Kaew’s Aranyaprathet district, were taken to re-enact the crime at key spots where they confessed to committing the crime, Royal Thai Police Pol Lt-General Prawut Thawornsiri said yesterday.

Prawut said Adem’s confession was in line with Mieraili’s confession and Adem’s statements also implicated others in the bombing gang. “The suspects’ statements given to police are also in line with other evidence that police found and scientific evidence. This led us to believe that their confession is true,” Prawut said.

Both suspects re-enacted the crime separately. Adem started the re-enactment outside the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel where he allegedly got off a tuk-tuk; the second spot was at the Erawan Shrine where Adem placed a bag containing the bomb. Mieraili was brought to Rama I Road, opposite the Erawan Shrine. The third spot was at Soi Mahadlekluang where Mieraili got on a motorcycle to escape; the fourth spot was at Chalermlok bridge where Mieraili confessed that he threw his mobile phone into the Saen Saeb canal. The fifth spot was at the fifth gate of Lumpini Park, where Adem allegedly got off a motorcycle to walk to Lumpini Park. The sixth spot was at a toilet near the fifth gate of the park where Adem changed his clothes before leaving the park through gate 4 on Rama IV Road to get in a taxi. The seventh spot was near Padung Krung Kasem Canal at the third bridge near Hua Lampong train station where Adem waited for Mieraili to give him the bomb. Mieraili waited at the second bridge. The eighth spot was at a bench near Padung Krung Kasem Canal near Hua Lampong train station where bags were switched.

The ninth spot was near the fence of the Hua Lampong train station near the Padung Krung Kasem Canal where Adem got into a tuk-tuk. The 10th spot was where the tuk-tuk driver stopped to talk to his friend. The 11th spot was the Cockpit shop opposite Ramada Hotel where a bag containing an explosive device was delivered to Zubair – the blue-shirted man who dropped a bomb at Sathorn Pier; the 12th spot was at a mosque between Soi Charoenkrung 105 and 107 where Adem took 20 minutes to pray.

The 13th spot was at the LPG gas station opposite the mosque where Adem changed into a yellow shirt. The 14th spot was at Kor Laem post office where Adem got on a taxi. The 15th spot was at Soi Charoen Nakhon 61 and Chao Phraya Princess pier, where a bag containing a bomb was located.

The 16th spot was Charoen Nakhon Road opposite Soi Charoen Nakhon 61 where the suspect got into a taxi. The 17th spot was Min Buri market where the suspect got off a taxi. The 18th spot was at a 7-Eleven shop at Min Buri where Adem bought some goods and the 19th spot was at room 412 of Poon-anan apartment where Adem was arrested.

National police chief General Somyot Poompanmuang said the suspects had confessed because they were confronted with evidence. He said the motive for the bombing was the crackdown on human trafficking, which put an end to the illegal business. The suspects were part of the human-trafficking ring and might have been hired by an ill-intentioned group to commit the crime. The re-enactment was carried out under heavy security with some 600 military and police officers being deployed to keep security, who accompanied the two suspects to all the sites. Adem wore a yellow T-shirt and a bulletproof vest and shorts. Mieraili was in a blue T-shirt with a bulletproof vest inside the shirt and shorts. Before the enactment, the Bangkok Military Court approved police’s request to detain the two suspects for 12 days from September26 to October 7. The suspects would be detained at the temporary remand facility in Nakhon Chaisri after re-enacting the crime.

Prawut had announced a list of 17 suspects for whom arrest warrants were approved by the court. All 17 were charged with colluding to commit premeditated murder; colluding to commit attempted premeditated murder; colluding to produce bombs, causing death, serious injuries and damage to the assets of others; conspiring to damage property; colluding to possess explosive devices without permission; colluding to carry explosive devices into a city or public places without justified reasons; and colluding to possess weapons without permission.

Yingluck decries ‘death of democracy’ after impeachment

Yingluck 26-1

Embattled former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra decried the “death of democracy” in Thailand on Friday after the junta-stacked parliament impeached her and prosecutors announced corruption charges that could see her jailed.

The successful impeachment of Yingluck, the kingdom’s first female premier and the sister of former leader Thaksin Shinawatra, carries an automatic five-year ban from politics, while the criminal charges could see her sentenced to a decade in prison.

She swiftly denounced the decisions as an assault on democracy and vowed to fight the new corruption charges.

“Democracy has died in Thailand today, along with the rule of law. That move to destroy me is still ongoing and I face it now,” she said in a statement published on Facebook after plans to hold a press conference were called off on the advice of junta officials.

Experts say the impeachment and criminal charges are the latest attempt by the country’s royalist elite, and its army backers, to nullify the political influence of the Shinawatras, whose parties have won every election since 2001.

But the junta’s pursuit of the family could also disturb the uneasy calm that has descended on Thailand since the military took over.

The Shinawatras’ ‘Red Shirt’ supporters, who have lain low since the coup, were enraged by the twin decisions — but leaders warned against widespread street protests in a country where political gatherings are banned under martial law.

“Today’s impeachment is the highest provocation, aimed at encouraging the Red Shirts to come out so they (the government) can shift the blame for all their failures onto the Red Shirts,” Jatuporn Prompan, the movement’s leader, told viewers on his Peace TV programme.

Both the impeachment and corruption charges revolve around her administration’s controversial rice subsidy programme, which funnelled cash to her rural base but cost billions of dollars, and inspired protests that felled her government and led to a military takeover in May.

“The primary aim is to prevent her and the Shinawatras returning to politics should the military be forced to step down and call an election. They simply cannot compete when it comes to electoral politics,” Pavin Chachavalpongpun, a Thai academic at Kyoto University, told AFP.

Loved and loathed

Both Thaksin and Yingluck are loathed by many Thais in the upper and middle classes but still command huge loyalty from much of the rural poor, particularly in the Shinawatras’ northern strongholds, where rice farming is a mainstay of the local economy.

The rice subsidy scheme, which purchased the crop from farmers at around twice the market rate, was hugely popular among the Shinawatras’ vote base but economically disastrous.

Prosecutors had spent months deciding whether Yingluck should face separate criminal corruption charges over the scheme with the Office of the Attorney General finally confirming Friday that an indictment for negligence would be handed down in early March.

During the impeachment hearings Yingluck defended the rice scheme as a necessary subsidy to help poor farmers who historically receive a disproportionately small slice of government cash.

She also attacked the legality of impeaching her from a position from which she had already been removed.

Analysts said it was always unlikely that the parliament — which is stacked with junta appointees — would save Yingluck’s political career.

And while imminent street protests are unlikely, observers say the moves against Yingluck will do little to foster the kind of political reconciliation the military claims it is seeking.

“In the medium to longer term, the grievances within the Yingluck/Thaksin side will accumulate and become more virulent when they eventually surface,” Thitinan Pongsudhirak, director of the Institute of Security and International Studies at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University, told AFP.

“Little by little, the move could crystallise into a willingness by Red Shirts to demonstrate,” added Paul Chambers, a specialist on Thai politics at Chiang Mai University.

Since Thaksin swept to power in 2001, Shinawatra governments have been floored by two coups and the removal of three other premiers by the kingdom’s interventionist courts.

Full English Text of Yingluck’s Post-Impeachment Statement, #Thailand

YingLuck 23-1-2015

A Khaosod English translation of the statement posted by former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on her official Facebook account this afternoon.

Statement from Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra
The 28th Prime Minister of Thailand
23 January 2015

To all the dear people,

As expected, the National Legislative Assembly has reached its decision to impeach me as a Prime Minister and ban me from politics for five years, while the Attorney-General has taken up a case against me in the Supreme Court’s Division for Holders of Political Office. I have these statements to make:

I insist on and express confidence in my innocence, and I would like to thank the principled minority votes that upheld fairness. The procedures have violated and abridged my basic rights that I, as a Thai citizen, deserve to have.

Let me insist that the rice-mortage program is a good program. It did not cause damages. As for the number of damages that they have tried to press on me, it is prejudice against me, and an attempt to use farmers as instruments of political destruction.

As I said about Thailand’s democracy on 29 April 2013 at Ulan Bator, Mongolia, “I would like to see reconciliation and democracy gain strength. This can only be achieved through strengthening of the rule of law and due process. Only then will every person from all walks of life feel confident that they will be treated fairly.”

I still insist on those words I said, even though today Thai democracy is dead, along with the rule of law. There is still a movement constantly bent on destruction, as I am suffering right now. 

It is saddening and unbelievable that there are so many coincidences, as I said in my final hearing yesterday, and they are coincidences that are not coincidences. Just only one hour before the National Legislative Assembly began its impeachment vote, the Attorney-General announced that it would prosecute me on charges of dereliction of duty leading to corruption in the rice-mortage program, even though the head of the Office of Attorney-General stressed that there is still need to consider incomplete points in the case.

The attorney institution, which has long been a credible institution in the justice system, is now questioned because of this incident. 

My performance of duty as a Prime Minister throughout two years, nine months, and two days was dedicated to solving problems in every group of people without discrimination. I am proud that, once in my life, I helped farmers and poor people escape from the depth of their poverty, and improved their lives. 

Today, I have no [political] office left. The only thing left for me are charges that they have forcefully pressed against me, which I will fight in court. 

Reconciliation cannot take place by hunting down certain individuals. It has to come with impartiality that provides justice to all sides. When there is fairness, there will be justice. Acceptance, peace, and unity will then follow suit in Thai society.

We are all Thais. Instead of turning to each other and joining hands to strengthen our country, we create hatred against each other, hunting down [opponents] and not giving them quarters. In the end, the one who is damaged is our own country. 

I am saddened, not because I have been bullied and am suffering unfair fate, but because I feel sorry for farmers and all the Thai people who lost their opportunity and were forced back to live in the endless cycle of poverty, debt, and exploitation. They also lost the basic [rights] of democracy, and the laws are being distorted. 

Finally, I hope that the individuals who administer justice of the country will not allow any group who disrespects democratic rules and disregards rules of law to be influential ever again. As an academic has said: “if there is no Yingluck, Thai people can still live on. But, more importantly, if there is no justice left in the governance of Thailand, no one can live on.”
