… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Anas Gets Away With 8 Years for ‘Sustained Corruption’

Jakarta Globe, Sep 24, 2014

Jakarta. Anas Urbaningrum’s slow-motion fall from grace ended with a softer thud than many had expected on Wednesday, after the Jakarta Anti-Corruption Court sentenced the former Democratic Party chair to only eight years in prison.

The verdict brought an end to another act in a scandal of greed and politics almost Shakespearean in its depth — although it is likely the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) will appeal the sentence.

“The defendant is proven validly and convincingly guilty of sustained corruption and repeated money laundering,” the presiding judge told Anas.

The court fined Anas Rp 300 million ($25,000) and ordered him to repay Rp 57 billion ($4.77 million) to the state or face another two years in jail.

Prosecutors had sought a 15-year sentence on grounds of corruption and money laundering.

Athletes pay the price

It was alleged Anas received money in exchange for handing a friendly company a contract to build an elite athletics training center in West Java. Instead the court said Anas was guilt of “sustained corruption.”

That center, colloquially known as Hambalang for the town in which it was supposed to be built, now lies mothballed on the West Java hillside — a white elephant of corruption in a country that punches well below its weight in sports.

At the most recent Asian Games, which were held in Guanghzou in 2010, Indonesia achieved just four gold medals — three of which were in the dragon boat event.

The world’s fourth-largest country was nowhere near the top-ten in the medals table, while regional peers Malaysia and Thailand brought home double Indonesia’s medal haul.

Corruption allowed the budget for Hambalang to balloon to approximately Rp 2.5 trillion, running up a loss to the public purse of Rp 470 billion in the process.

While Indonesian athletes have found their international potential frustrated by poor facilities and insufficient funding, Anas was taking delivery of snazzy cars and bags of cash for rigging tenders in a bid to bankroll his thirst for power, the court found.

Prosecutors said that Anas had used hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund his election campaign for the chairmanship of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s Democratic Party.

Anas spent Rp 20 billion between Nov. 16, 2010, and Mar. 13, 2013 on land and houses. His salary and allowances as a lawmaker between Oct. 1, 2009, and Aug. 21, 2010, amounted to around Rp 500 million. He had no other source of declared income.

A host of accusations

Anas was not the only politician to be brought down by corruption allegations in relation to the Hambalang center. Former Youth and Sport Affairs Minister Andi Alfian Mallarangeng was sentenced to four years in jail in July. Andi was convicted of having received Rp 4 billion and $550,000 from the firm Global Daya Manunggal through his brother, Andi Zulkarnaen Mallarangeng

Anas fought the charges against him by laying the blame at the door of everyone else.

He claimed to have been set up by shadowy figures. He labeled the attempt to prosecute him a conspiracy. He painted himself as a sacrificial lamb sent to slaughter while “those in power cling to that power by any means.” He attempted to buy himself time and derail court proceedings by drip-feeding sensational allegations about some of the country’s most senior politicians, which were dutifully picked up and splashed by the Indonesian media.

The most serious of these insinuations were that Yudhoyono’s son Edhie Baskoro Yudhoyono had taken a $200,000 bribe as part of the whole affair.

Anas also said Edhie “benefited” from the May 2010 party congress at which he was alleged to have used the money to buy votes in his bid for the party chair. Anas did not, however, accuse Edhie of having taken any bribes.

Instead, he questioned prosecutors’ hesitancy to call Edhie to the stand, saying that as the head of the congress’s steering committee, Edhie was “the one person who best understood how the election worked.”

This allegation has not been substantiated and no charges have been brought against Edhie.

The president’s son was not the only sideshow in what has been an at times farcical trial. The court heard that Anas’ foreign jaunts to Hong Kong and elsewhere were paid for by Dutasari Citralaras, where his wife used to serve on the board.

Lawmaker Nova Riyanti Yusuf  filed a police report for defamation against graft convict Muhammad Nazaruddin after the latter claimed to the court that she was Anas’ second wife.

Gallows humor

Another tactic that Anas employed to try and save his neck was to volunteer to be “hanged from Monas [the National Monument in Jakarta]” if he were found to have stolen as much as Rp 1 from the Hambalang project.

The deputy chairman of the KPK, who was never swayed by the protestation of innocence, reminded Anas of his promise before the verdict was announced on Wednesday.

“The KPK only wants to remind Anas of a statement about his willingness to be hanged at Monas,” Bambang Widjojanto said.

Anas made no mention of this when giving his closing remarks to the court on Wednesday.

“I’ll need a week to think before deciding whether to file an appeal,” he said.
