Sharizat to be dropped - Breaking News.

The Sharizat issue takes centre stage.
Either she goes or no one goes, the ball's in Najib's court.

The non performing UMNO members have found the excuse they were looking for not to go to Najib to say that they'll step down, even those who have told him so now have a change of heart, "if Sharizat can stay why can't we," is the question lingering in the corridors of power now.


A good number of MPs targeted by Najib to be dropped come from Muhydin's camp, the DPM has been in strong support of Sharizat to cover up his own folly of having given National Feedlot Corp to Sharizat's husband even without a  proper tender excercise, he sent it to Abbdullah Badawi for approval and whilst Abdullah was asleep Khairy okayed it and Abdullah signed the approval.


The DPM never expected this to come back smack into his face at such a crucial time, he has been trying to defend Sharizat all this while and so was Khairy Jamaluddin, both of them are now in the same predicament as is the Wanita head.

Najib sees this as the excuse he needed to throw out all or at least the majority of the DPMs men, but after having made a pact with the DPM he is not sure what he has to do in the face of the next General Elections, as he knows there are others in UMNO to take him on as well.


The talk among the neutrals is that Sharizat will be dropped, this is because she does not have  a good equation with Rosmah and Rosmah's influence at this stage is sufficient for Najib to drop her but  the question is when.


Najib can't wait for the last minute that way he'll be sending a wrong message to the existing MPs whom he wants to drop, if he decides to drop them at the eleventh hour too, it will only raise their expectations and when they find out they have been dropped they will work against Najib and UMNO, this is the typical UMNO culture.


A senior UMNO memebr and member of Parliament had this to say, "Najib, he has no right to tell people to move out, not even if he wanted to say it to Khir Toyo, who is Najib, his name all tainted, all busu, he has not come out to clear it, Scorpene, Altantuya, so many purchases of equipment that is so expensive, I tell you he is not a clever man, he thinks he is very clever actually he very stupid, and the Malays are getting angry with him. Worst still his wife control him, tell me what did he achieve as PM?" Then raising his voice he said, "bl@#dy fool, all he do is to use rakyat money take Rosmah go shopping, not enough ah, all the money from his corruption. This man want to tell Sharizat to step down? No way, he can't even tell Khir Toyo to step down."

There seems to be a whole lot of wisdom in what he says, so I asked him, "Dato will you be asked to step down," his  reply,  "he can't ask me or tell me that, but I tell you very honestly lah, I am stepping down, I am fed up, you know, fed up."


This is really a disaster, there was no substance from the Prime Minsiter when he spoke at the UMNO general assembly, he lacked vision, he lacked foresight, he lacked commitment, he lacked most of all and very sadly leadership, the question now is do we deserve to be led by  idiots of such proportions? This  PM who openly said he is not  worried about the caliber of the people made by candidates by BN as long as they are able to win the votes it will be alright, they do not have to be graduates or academically excellent.


That statement is a very clear sign of what he plans for the nation in future, with idiots as MPs he can run this country bankrupt.


Want to be an idiot? UNDI LAH BARISAN NASIONAl!!!!!! for corruption, corruption and bankruptcy.

WHY PAKATAN? WHY DUMP BN?

The next general elections is the most crucial of all elections in this country.

It must be treated as very important to every Malaysian voter and in the process every voter has a duty to ensure that the BN and especially UMNO is wiped out during that election.

Why? Yes you may ask why should it be so, you may feel it will leave a lot of uncertainty in the future of this country, you may feel it is too big a risk to take, you may be worried although you know that UMNO is not worthy of being the government of the day -yet  you feel they are the only ones who  have the experience.

The truth is UMNO needs to purge its entire leadership, from branch level right up to the supreme council and that will never happen as long as this present set continues.

UMNO leadership thrives on cronyism, it thrives on corruption at every layer at every level, they feel they own the country, they feel that nothing can happen to them, the sense of invincibility surrounds every UMNO leader at every level that corruption is open and it is an everyday issue in UMNO.

For an UMNO leader to remain in power he has to make sure that his Branch leaders and Divisional leaders are well taken care of,  likewise the division leader's relationship with the Branch leaders and the Branch leaders relationship with his core branch members. There must be benefits in kind for the leadership at every level to survive and if this is not done the division or branch fails, it falls apart from bickering and infighting. Nothing in UMNO is free.

The system has produced the biggest bunch of oxymorons  as politicians and "leaders" in this country, and they are all in UMNO,   that to leave this country to be run by them and their cronies in the MCA the MIC and the remaining BN component parties will be to actually allow this beloved country to self destruct.

Let's review a few issues here to get things in the proper perspective.

Najib talks about 1 Malaysia, the government prints huge bill boards, it is in almost every printed material in town, from the government controlled mass media to advertisement banners to even toilet tissue covers, that last one I think is the most appropriate and beside the 1 Malaysia is Najib's face, to tell the whole world that he is number 1 in Malaysia,  I suppose.

The day after Najib proclaims one Malaysia his deputy comes out and says, "I am Malay first and Malaysian second," a direct affront to his boss who just decides to side step the issue and leave it unattended. So what is this 1 Malaysia? Well very honestly even Najib hasn't got the slightest clue.

Now after all that rhetoric about 1 Malaysia, today in a speech to PEKIDA theMalaysian Islamic Missionary and Welfare Association members he said, "Malays and Muslims have no choice but to defend the current federal government as this is they only way the future of the Malay race and the dignity of Islam can be safeguarded."

This is clearly the signs of desperation coming from a man who only recently was shouting the 1 Malaysia slogan from all corners of the country, so where is his   1 Malaysia now? Isn't that an oxymoron?

The other races in this country feel as much cheated as the Malays feel, because UMNO has used all the Malay allocation to enrich its membership, to feed the greed and the corruption that lies inbred in the very fabric of UMNO without which UMNO collapses. And to feed that greed they are running this country bankrupt. Why then are top UMNO leaders so eager to own  property in foreign nations? The answe lies in the fact that once they have bled the nation they'll leave it high and dry and head for their overseas destinations. The Sarawak CM is the clearest example.

In UMNO there is no Malay agenda, the fear that DAP will expose this to the Malays, has left the UMNO leadership worried and for that they use the controlled media to condemn the DAP and make it look like a monstrous anti Malay party.

The DAP leadership went to jail fighting for  the rights of a Malay grandmother and her grand daughter, and yet no man in UMNO had the guts to come out

Again in UMNO there is no Malay agenda, if there is one it is to rob the ordinary Malay by promoting ignorance amongst the ordinary Kampung Malays,and this is what UMNO has been doing all this while.

We have read about the countless corruption cases so conveniently swept under the carpet, or so timidly looked upon for which the most timid of all charges are brought against the perpetrators so that they get off Scott free  or face the minimum of sentences. Many are not even brought to court, and they can't because this government survives on a "you scratch my back I scratch your back" philosophy.

The latest involving Sharizaat, the famous "National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) issue," and the stupid defence she made at the UMNO assembly only goes to show the quality of members the Wanita UMNO is made up of, not one member had the guts or maybe even the depth to question Sharizat.

UMNO being what UMNO is we now  have a man from within come out and call for her resignation, and that is  Kinabatangan MP Bung Moktar Radin, a notorious UMNO personality himself,  and today another UMNO man, the division Chief for Cheras, Syed Ali Alhabsee supported Bung Moktar’s view, but UMNO wisdon still prevails in such circumstances this Syed Ali offers her an escape clause in his call, he says if the PM or the DPM does not want her to go she can remain.

Incidentally both Syed Ali and Sharizat are "Melayu celup."

Syed Ali Alhabsee says that she shoudl step down, but continue with the leadership of the wanita, and if the UMNO leadership decides not to accept her resignation that includes the DPM who happens to be an interested party in this case and who is implicated in the award of this feedlot corporation to Sharizat's husband without any tender exercise even though this was originally proposed by other parties who had studied the project and brought it to the attention of the  government. This other party comprised Malays, but are not have been members of UMNO's inner circle.
  
The splits in UMNO are very apparent, they are united or seem to be united now to face a common foe, the people, only that  this time the people have got wiser, UMNO is in the brink of desperation and desperate people will do desperate things including to hurl desperate and dangerous allegations to pit races against each other, that we know is Najib's forte, he did it at the TPCA stadium on the eve of Ops lallang, his deputy was there with him then,  it is the forte of his cousin Krishamuddin, and they'll do it  without batting an eyelid. 

The people  have to be vigilant, they must unite and fight this cause to save the nation we need an alternative government, we need to break this UMNO BN monopoly of governing this nation, it is only in that way that UMNO will be forced to purge corruption form its ranks and that of its partners in the BN and then offer themselves back to the people about three or maybe four terms later as a new and vibrant alternative to Pakatan if there is a need, or maybe another more credible party will emerge from the destruction of UMNO and the erasure of the names of its leaders from the beginning of the UMNO Baru era.

We the people deserve better, we need a government that will listen to us, that puts our interest above thier own selfish desires of self enrichment as is the case now. The PM's son is is millionaire, the PM's brother is one of the biggest bankers in the country, the PM's wife has still many questions hanging over her head, every head of MIC and MCA become multi - millionaires, whislt the people become poorer. 

The chief Minister of Sarawak is among the richest people in the world and yet the natives of Sarawak are languishing in poverty.
The lavish lives they lead are akin to that of the French aristocracy pre the French Revolution, and we have a Maria Antoinette look alike (in character I mean) in this government, I do not have to mention names.

This party that is so riddled with corruption that it has become a way of life and the very lifeblood of UMNO must now go for a complete revamp, it has to be forced to revamp, to rid itself of this disease and to come out anew a "renewal of sorts" and those within can't possibly do that, they will all have to go and give way to a new breed in the party, it can't with the present leadership, it needs total overhaul, all the diseased minds must be purged and new life instilled into the party for it to have the legitimacy to rule.

For many years we had voted the BN, we did so because we did not see an alternative or at least we thought so, in that process we built a monster of huge proportions  today this monster - the BN is not the alternative it is the disease,it is the threat to our very survival,  it has to go and as such the only viable alternative we have today is the Pakatan, they have proved themselves in all the states they have controlled against all the odds imposed by the  Federal government.

We have to vote the opposition to save the country and give us an alternative, do not be led by shallow talk, spread the news around now.

Decide and take the  only viable alternative around The Pakatan. Vote PKR. 

BN is no longer the alternative it is a disease and a very dangerous one, get rid of this very serious disease from our beloved country less we become the next Burma or Phillipines or maybe even Somalia.

The UMNO invasion of Jonker Street Melaka.


Electoral districts Melaka Tengah, Melaka, Mal...

Image via Wikipedia
It has always happened  at the banks of the Melaka river the invasion of Melaka by marauders of all kinds, and the latest is now UMNO poised to take over the business district of Jonker Street (the famed Jonker Walk)

It is not the ordinary Bumiputra who is involved it is the umnoputras and their cronies, some cronies are bigger than you can think. All so called Malay rights are in the  hands of greedy Umnoputras, the elite of Umno and their cronies, many of whom squander all that  is given to them, the famous feedlot case currently being exposed.

With the establishment of a hotel acclaimed to be the most expensive in Melaka on the banks of the river, with rack rates quoted at RM750, the setting up of the "Hard Rock Cafe" in Melaka the invasion of  Jonker street has begun.


This is not only confined to Jonker street but to any place where business is thriving, and the umnoputras have the clout to go in invade and take over, what happens after that is of no consequence, they come in fully sure they can succeed and they feel that the only way to go about it is to drive the present businesses away and take over the entire Jonker street area lock stock and barrel.

Jonker walk attracts thousands of tourists week in week out, Melaka hotels are fully booked and rates are far higher than those in Kuala Lumpur during the wekends, the Jonker street business community are made up mostly of extremely enterprising local Chinese some of whom are Bumiputra too by virtue of the fact that they are from the Baba/Nonya community.

There is one Indian Muslim shop or rather two owned by the same people who sell antique, they could be distantly related to Mahathir Mohammed, for like him they  they are Malabarees  too. This time around I was surprised when I visited the shop and saw a notice saying that visitors woudl have to pay about RM3/- per entry in what they seem to want run as a mini museum, the question that keeps lingering in my mind is, are these the signs of what is to come?

Hard Rock Cafe will be strategically  located just on the left when you cross the bridge from the clock tower,  so will the rest of the shops on the right of Jonker stret be turned into a privatised museum, in the UMNO take over plan?

HRC announcement says, "Hard Rock Cafe Melaka cafe will be located near the famous Jonker Walk, situated within the core zone of UNESCO world heritage site. Featuring diverse dining, nightlife and cultural offerings, the 9,000-square-foot iconic restaurant is poised to become the city’s newest landmark destination. The new Melaka cafe will be Hard Rock’s third cafe in Malaysia for veteran franchise partner HRC Holdings Pte Ltd. and local partner Tan Sri Syed Yusof Tun Syed Nasir."

The entire business of the area is being strategically vyed upon by  umnoputras. If it was the ordinary Bumiputra buying over businesses in the area it would have been good,  but here the Umnoputras are using the same tactics they use in other localities to drive the Jonker street builders, those who actually help create the tourist trade in Jonker street out of Jonker street.

You only have to park your car in joker street  in a no park zone in Jonker street, and the efficient policemen or  the City council enforcement officer will  attach a ticket to your car almost instantly. Just go to there to Jonker street and ask anyone who operates a business there. One wonders why the police are so efficient in Melaka in Jonker street and  so much less efficient in Jalan Tengku Kelana Klang, a main road leading to the main bridge in town. Efficiency of the traffic police and the Municipal enforcement officers  are unbelievable, you have to be there to witness it first hand for yourself.

Why this selective efficiency, I wanted to purchase an antique gramaphone but the man in the shop warned me that if I came by and stopped my car along the street to carry it in he could not assure me that I'd not get a ticket, he told me they are merciless, they'll stick it up first no talk, but then again why only in Melaka?

That seems to be UMNO's invasion of Melaka, the people of Jalan Sultan (Chinatown area) in Kuala Lumpur are feeling the heat too, then there is the Ocean supermarket area in Klang which has today become a complete failure, no thanks to the BN Klang Kota Bridge project that took ages to complete it killed off the business in the area around Goh Hock Huat area, it closed the Ocean supermarket and the Umnoputeras are now st to move in.

I am sure we are all too familiar with the KFC takeover issue some years back when suddenly because they failed they labeled KFC as not halal. Now I find difficulty in obtaining my favourite Golden Churn Butter, it has been declared non halal too. One wonders if "Halal" is being used to drive business monopoly. How does butter that is derived purely from Cows milk be classified non halal, the cow has to be alive for it to be milked for goodness sake and Austrailia is not known for bacon and ham industry, its all cattle, its beef is halal, so too are its lamb and mutton but how on earth did butter become non halal? Were there some conflicts in business? Well I really do not know, but one needs to ask to be told in detail, so that items are not just blindly banned.

Now after the Portuguese in 1511, the Dutch in 1641, and its cessation to the English by way of the Anglo Dutch treaty in 1824 and not forgetting the Japanese occupation of Malaya, Melaka is again being invaded this time by the Umnoputra, more scruples than all the rest I guess, because this is Malaysian against Malaysian, where one treats the other as a foreigner.

Dissolution of Parliament in March.

Expecting the worst Najib has set March for the dissolution of Parliament, it will be after the passing the bill to remove the Internal Security act.

The bill will have the full support of Parliament, this time around the BN, and in particular Najib, Mahathir Mohammed, and some of their cronies will want it more than anyone else, even more than those who are currently being held by this draconian piece of legislation.

There will be a motion to repeal the ISA in March and depending on the outcome of the elections the new government if it is led by the BN will reinstate the ISA if they win with  a clear majority, or the bill may be held in ambiance as it will then be awaiting Royal consent and accordingly it will either receive or not receive Royal consent.

This is  the game being played and a plan of this government, fearing that they might be ousted in the next General Elections they are taking all measures to protect themselves. They fear that the armed forces and the police may break ranks and follow the orders of the government of the day, and so in order to ensure that they can use whatever means within their power they may try and retake Parliament by foul means, and if they fail take flight from the country, to do this safely they’ll have to revoke the  ISA lest they become victims of their own folly.

An UMNO source says this was the brain child of the Attorney General who himself is afraid of being held accountable should the Barisan lose the next General Elections. It has received the tacit approval of Mahathir and Najib and the possibility of the formation of another National Operations Council (NOC) is very real, the irony is it is being put in place by Najib Tun Razak – like father like son.

The NOC idea is to be the first option should they lose the General Elections.

Huge sums of money are being transferred out of Malaysia on a daily basis, it is worst than the Indian Black market, and the only person capable of making such transactions is none other than an Indian who masquerades as a Malay, he has a an entire brigade of money changers working for him, he does not need sophisticated banking systems to take that money out.

The situation is rife the man who said what is happening in Syria, and  Egypt cannot happen in Malaysia is now rather quiet, he sees the possibility that it will happen here, the people are fed up, and they want their dignity back. 

The people of Malaysia want their country back and in that process there will be assemblies, peaceful or otherwise, no Malaysian rally has been violent,  it only became violent because the government made it violent by use of brutal police force, and the people who participated in those rallies were victims of violence. It has been proven  in the Tung Shin Hospital incident.  It happened time and time again in Malaysia.

Malaysian football crowds were never violent, they shouted they jeered, they cheered but they were never violent, violence is not our way of life and many a foreigner will attest to that. But his government in pursuit of its own agenda are and have proven to be capable of turning rallies violent if it suits them, safety and human life seems to take a back seat when their own interests are involved.

Elections are due after the March sitting of Parliament, a lot of issues need to be ironed out and as Mahathir put it, Najib has done nothing since he came to office, he has been more preoccupied with his foreign travel, his shopping trips for Rosmah, his promotion of Rosmah to first lady and the immense importance he has given her in Malaysian politics that she is sometimes made to look as the defacto minister of foreign affairs.
Whilst Rosmah basks in her popularity, and her ability to appear daily in the press, more often than the Deputy PM and even the PM, in fact more often than any minister and members of Parliament, the Malaysian community and more particularly the Malays are angry at her arrogance, and her lavishness and though many may not be familiar with the famed Maria Antoinette, they are with Imelda Marcos and have drawn a parallel between the two.

In the meantime my good friend Muhydiin is just waiting for the opportune moment to present itself,, he knows he stands on unstable ground at the moment, not because Najib will get him - on that  score he is rock solid, but the fear the real fear that Barisan may lose. This has caused his most ardent followers to keep nagging him constantly  to go into direct confrontation with Najib, expose him  and thereby make himself a hero amongst the Malays. 

One UMNO insider says taking on Najib now, is the DPM’s best bet, the time is opportune now, Najib is not popular amongst the Malays and a move this time is a sure win, a win that will make him an UMNO hero and possibly lead to the return of many Malays from PKR.

If however he fails and tht is a remote possibility he can cross over and join the PKR, and that way it will mean “heads I win, tails you lose” to Najib.

Muhydin is a slow mover and in politics the slow movers can’t survive, he has to come out of his shell and go for that brutal blow to Najib if he is to succeed in becoming Prime Minisiter. The PKR will be more than willing to give him that position after a term or two of Anwar at the helm, but as far as UMNO goes he can kiss his chances goodbye there is no way he will get to sit on that chair as it goes right now that place is reserved for Mukhriz Mahahtir, unless Muhydin takes the advice of his followers and goes for  on Najib now.


This truly is a case of it's now or never.

Najib attempts to put UMNO in order before next GE.

 It is sheer desperation as Najib attempts to put UMNO in order, his order that is, before he calls for the next General Elections.

Keep watch, be careful lest you get tempted by the forces of evil led by the UMNO Baru and their lackeys the MCA, the MIC, the almost defunct Gerakan, the PPP, the rest of this unholy alliance that has plundered this nation and cheated their peoples using every trick at their disposal, even to the extent of legalizing illegal immigrants giving them citizenship to deprive Malaysians, and more so Malaysian Bumiputras what were their dues.


For Joseph Pairin Kittingan  to sit in the Barisan and demand explanations is nothing less than hypocrisy of the highest order, for if you partake with thieves, even though you are not party to this one theft you are a thief by any reckoning, and as the saying goes, “tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.”

The next General Elections are nigh, they can’t call the elections till they have either discredited Anwar Ibrahim or till they shut him out, and this is not happening, because the bungling Attorney General, the Government and even the judiciary who have time again fumbled in what is seen by the world as a “great fix.”


Remember that Sodomy 1 came about after Anwar raised the issues of “nepotism and cronyism,” he shook the very foundations of UMNO and Mahathir could not believe what was going on.


 The Mahathir family would have  had a lot to lose had Anwar succeeded in eradicating that “nepotism and cronyism,”  and he  Mahahtir Mohammed would not stand idle and allow that to happen, not at the cost of his family and the empire he was building with them, that was the nepotism Anwar was speaking about.


Anwar had to be shut off, he had to be discredited to the extent that he became totally unacceptable to the Malays and the best way was a charge of Sodomy, Mahathir is a great disciple of Hitler, and this was taken out of Hitler’s scheme. Portray Anwar  as a homosexual and a man without morals and he’d be totally unacceptable to the Muslims and the Malays, all this time Anwar was seen as a champion of Islam and the Malays, Mahathir had  to hit him where it mattered most, and what better than a sex scandal and more so Sodomy,  he almost succeeded.

They thought it had been done, they were convinced it was done, they felt Anwar was nothing more than a few lines in history at best, and that belief was reinforced after Badawi’s clean sweep when he went to  the electorate the first time – it looked like Anwar was really in all senses of the word destroyed, he was  history and Mahathir had successfully dumped him.


Then came the last General Elections, the government lost five states something the BN thought was impossible after May 13 1969, after declaring Kuala Lumpur a Federal Territory and after depriving the Selangor state assembly of five sure opposition seats the late Tun Razak was sure that Selangor would never fall to the opposition again and so did his successors right up to Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.


UMNO was shocked by the stunning blow that befell them, Mahathir was trembling when Anwar claimed he had the support to form a Government, even on elections day word was out Badawi and his son in law had lost in their respective seats, but then it is easy with our EC, there are the military and postal votes, and how that is allocated is only known to the EC and the PM in  particular.


We were at a wedding dinner in Melaka, I was asked by a friend what I thought about the elections this time around. My reply was, “ I have this strong feeling it will be like the 1969 results, we are going to witness a repeat,” and lo and behold we did.


As early as 7.20 p.m. that night my friend from Penang Ajit Singh Jessy called me he was so excited, he was almost shouting when he told me, “in Penang it is a clean sweep, the Gerakan is dead, they have been wiped out and the DAP has won a stunning victory, Koh Tsu Khoon has been has been kicked out.” I immediately relayed that message rather reluctantly to my friends around the dinner table, and all of us  could not believe it. There was no news about it at all, there seemed to be almost a total news blackout.


At about 9.30 pm another friend whose son is married to a Malay and whose parents are strong UMNO beneficiaries told us his son had called him to inform him his mother in law was crying saying that five states had fallen and that they were going to lose everything.


A little later a friend of mine Jaafar (not his real name) from Kuala Lumpur calls, he had this to say, “ you can fool all the Malays sometimes, but you can’t fool all the Malays all the time, and UMNO is being told that today by us Malays.” 


Jaafar still an UMNO member says today that, “what was supposed to be Bumiputra rights and privileges were taken and given to a select few in UMNO many of whom are not real bumiputras, and they were made super rich at the expense of the rakyat.”

Well within UMNO now there is this realisation that the Chinese are not the bogeymen they are made out to be so often by Mahathir, he had been doing it since 1969, , but rather those in power in UMNO who have deprived the Malays and the all Bumiputras what was supposed to be theirs.


Jaafar also says this, “this UMNO  will continue to make the Malay ignorant, for it is  in their ignorance that this plundering, corruption, nepotism, and cronyism can continue, the Malays are waking up and when they have soaked in the truth these people will be dumped into the dustbin of history.” Many Malays he says have begun and are learning now to hate Mahathir, for what he really is, his dark side is being revealed. He takes us for fools by using Ibrahim Ali to say all those stupid things and expects us to react, we are matured, were not fools and we’ll not be fooled anymore,” said Jaafar.


UMNO too realizes that the Chinese card can’t be played too often, the Malays themselves are realizing this, so they have found another bogeyman, the Christians.


Now this Government of Najib Tun Razak and his beloved Rosmah are scheming the ways and means by which they shall rest power at the next GE. Najib is losing patience with the Anwar trial, his assurance that he would testify and then backing down at the last moment speaks volumes about his credibility.
Surely in the interest of justice Anwar must be given every avenue to clear his name, but in this particular case it seems so different.  The judge contraded his own decision after he had judged at the trial within the trial that the DNA evidence obtained from the plastic bottle by one Jude Blacious Pereira was not admissible. 


His decision to overrule his own judgment tends to lend credence to the suspicion that the AG is pulling the strings in this case and the judge is just doing his bidding. From the decision he has taken in this court I am quite convinced that he is incapable of even writing a proper judgment independently as has been the case in a recent controversy of plagiarism within our courts involving our judges. What a shame.


Najib Tun Razak spoke of one Malaysia, all posters carry his face with the number one beside it, to indicate more that he is trying very hard to reinforce with the people that he is the No. 1 in the country.
His number two not to be outdone immediately contradicts what he says ,and says, “I am Malay first and Malaysian second, “ he would have been more correct if he had said ”I am Indonesian first and Malaysian second,” that would have been difficult to challenge. That one episode indicates Najib’s inability to control UMNO.


It is reported that Najib and his deputy are to be on holiday, they are out there to iron out a few things, first is the succession plan, Muhyudin wants the assurance from Najib that he will vacate the post after serving a full term after the next General Elections, Najib is saying it will be two elections and that is a long time, the Muhyuddin camp are unwilling to accept it.


Najib’s people think he will manage to convince Muhyiddin of the proposal and he Muhyiddin will accept it, at the same time the Mahathrian camp sources say that is enough time for Najib to replace  Muhyiddin with Mukhriz. 


This is the classic example of “no permanent enemies and friends in politics”and it is not more glaring in UMNO than it is in any other party.


Once the truce is put in place Najib will call for the next general elections, among those to be dropped will be Chua Soi Lek  seen as an embarrassment to the party, Najib has already promised Koh Tsu Khoon a position outside the cabinet with the rank of a cabinet minister. The wanita UMNO head is reported to be heading the way of being dropped too, the UMNO youth Chief will not be fielded.


Who Najib will field from UMNO will decide the fate of the elections, there are Mahathir favourites beginning with his son of course, then the Muhyuddin camp have their people, Najib is at a loss as to who he should pick, the UMNO people see him as a weak leader, his failure to settle the Altantuya issue is seen as a burden to the party, Rosmah is seen as a huge liability, so whoever he chooses will land up on Muhyuddin’s lap.


Najib’s talks  with Mahathir are not going too well, Mahathir is campaigning for a more powerful position for his son, Mukhriz must be given home affairs and Trade and Industry, that will pave the way for him for better opportunities. The only persons he can rely on are Nazri, Hishamuddin and the man who told the whole world he burnt all his bridges when he left UMNO for  Semangat 46, all  seen as not the most intelligent persons in Malaysian politics.


Muhyiddin has proved himself in the many by elections he was in charge of, he poses a real threat to Najib, but he is in no hurry  to call for Najib to step down yet, the next General Elections must be held first, the Deputy Prime Minsiters men will ensure that Najib puts on a worse show than Badawi did, and in the aftermath of the next GE, Mahathir will lead the voices of UMNO again with a deal struck with Muhyuddin, Muhyuddin knows exactly how to play his cards with Mahathir, he has worked with the man before, fallen out of his favour and returned.


Mahathir is playing both sides, he is king at playing the flipside when the odds are stacked against him and that is what he is doing, and Najib is stuck with Rosmah right at dead centre.


In politics the dead centre is the worst place to be in, for history has taught us that, “Hells hottest spots are reserved for those who in the face of crisis declare neutrality.”

Invading Malaysia the EC way

Ya, you don't need a foreign army or country to invade this country if the allegations made by PAS Secretary General  Mustafa Ali are true, and there will be very few Malaysians including UMNO members who will really doubt what he says, except that the UMNO members and members of component BN parties may be delighted with the plan as it could assure a BN victory, but surely  even BN members and everyone from all sides of the divide must sit up and take notice and demand action if they really love this country.

Allegations By PAS Secretary General
The allegations made out by Mustaffa Ali are serious and warrants immediate investigation from the authorities - as this is  not some of  that flimsy stuff the BN has gone about calling treason - this  is really and truly treason in every sense of the word. This if proven will be considered an act of surrendering the country to foreigners by the Barisan Government.


According to the PAS Secretary General a resort  in Cherating, Kuantan, is being used as a processing centre as well as to distribute the MyKad.


He said, "the centre is used for two purposes, one to hold and then coach foreigners who are then given Malaysian identity cards, and the other  to process locals, who are then transferred to other electoral constituencies."


The first act of giving foreigners myKad and enabling them to vote is an act aimed at depriving Bona Fide citizens their right of electing  a government of their choice.

It is an act where we as Malaysian citizens will then lose our rights to these foreigners who in the first place are not citizens, but are given citizenship solely to deprive Malaysian their right of choice and to compromise the integrity of the elections - and that is extremely dangerous.

This is something we have all been observing   for a long time now rather indifferently, in Sabah these foreigners now outnumber the locals, and actually have more rights than the locals, this was set up by the issuance of citizenship to Indonesians and Filipinas in Sabah , now the same exercise is being carried out here  and soon  we'll  have  Indonesian and Bangaladeshi Bumiputeras and they will have more rights than the ordinary non Bumiputera Malaysian citizens.

Acknowledgement of crooked things happening
 "There may be some hanky-panky, but elections in Malaysia are clean, not absolutely clean, but clean.

"I must stress that it is also not as rampant as in other countries where the government gets 90 percent of the vote... here the opposition has even won some states,

Mahathir Mohammed - Malaysiakini Aug17.


Coming from the Mamak Kutty this is dangerous, he seems to say it, as though it is okay because what he says is,  it is not as rampant as in other countries, what kind of reasoning is that from an ex PM?

But then again if we know what happened when Pairin defeated Harris Salleh and the firing that Musa Hitam got from him (Mahathir) for not allowing an illegal takeover by Tun Datuk Mustapha and Haris at that time will explain that it was this man who defiled the sanctity of the ballot box in Malaysia.


Malaysians both Bumiputra and non Bumiputra will face dire consequences if this is true as these "New Bumiputeras" will then eventually have more rights and privileges then even the Bumiputera.

Integrity
A government that has compromised its integrity will succumb to blackmail and loses its right to govern.They will and, can be easily blackmailed by this "New Bumiputeras"  to seek more privileges.


Right from the beginning when Najib stepped into the shoes of the PM with Altantuya issue hanging over his head, without clearing his name in the 
Altantuya case the integrity of the office of the PM was compromised.


Could Najib have had a motive to kill Altantuya? 


Could Razak Baginda and Rosmah both also  involved in the purchase of the Scorpene submarines have had a motive?


What motive could the two security personnel have to kill  Altantuya Shaaribu?
Not that any of the two "were going to be the next PM of Malaysia," if you know what I mean.


How could the immigration records of Altantuya Sharibu have been erased  from our Immigration department? 

Who was senior enough to give such orders, Badawi? 

But then again why would Badawi want to do it, he had nothing to gain, instead he had all to lose and lose he did, for not investigating this case as he should have.


The people who have been charged and found guilty of the murder were Mohammed Najib's  personal bodyguards, they had no motive to kill Altantuya, so what was the motive and who was behind that motive is yet to be determined.


Why was Najib not investigated? 

He was not PM then so why did the authorities see it unnecessary to investigate him? Why had they to be afraid to investigate him?

Surely our Attorney General knows that for a murder charge to stick, there must be motive, so I ask again, what was the motive? And who could possibly have a motive?


The recent deportation  of the French lawyer in the Scorpene case, the lawyer acting for a Malaysian NGO has cast even more doubts on Najib's claims that he did not know Altantuya, that he never met her and that he had no role in that murder.


Now if the integrity of that office is in question, how can we trust the PM himself in this myKad  case, a case of high treason?


The Prime Minister has to be aware that this is not a little issue, for this if true will lead to defilement of the sanctity of the ballot box.


The Prime Minister must be aware of the consequences of such acts, history has taught us that this will result in people taking the law into their own hands in desperation, the streets will open like they never did before in Malaysia, protests and anarchy will be the order of the day, and that is something we do not want, and we should not want and a responsible Prime Minister must act to ensure that this not happen.


Acting to ensure this does  not happen is not to arrest people who make the allegations and warn him of the consequences, that is the duty of every citizen, especially when the nation is in deep trouble as is in this case  and is actually if true allowing the country to be invaded the EC way.


The Elections commissioner has to take note he has to see  PAS secretary-General Mustafa Ali immediately, he must seek him out proactively this is a serious allegation, he must act responsibly, the PM has to seek the assistance of the PAS Secretary General too, it must be given top urgency and whatever investigations to be carried out in this excercise should be done transparently, as the least doubt cast by a government so riddled with  corruption, and lack of integrity will only lead to trouble.


The PM has to decide, as the burden of all these allegations lands up finally on his desk. He must decide for the good of the nation, for King and Country, and he can't sit in Putrajaya and sing Karaoke with Rosmah whilst the country burns. Nero did just that only that he did not have Rosmah.


He must learn form history and act accordingly or he will be treated accordingly as many a leader who shirked his responsibilities has found out in the past and are finding out presently.

Mohd. Najib's time is running out.

  By Toffee
28 July 2011

He'll sure remember this song, it was from his time and it was an Elvis Number, "It's now or never" and those 4 words hold a lot of meaning to Mohd. Najib now more then it ever did.


Najib Tun Abdul Razak is going in for a big shock, it may even be the cause of Mahathir Mohammed suffering a severe  heart attack, I would not want to speculate more on that score,  and to avoid that he -Najib, has to be extra careful in the selection of who stands where, in the next General Elections, not in the component parties but particularly in UMNO as deals have been struck to dump him come the next elections.

This should not come as a shock to many  Malaysians, as he was not really the rightful heir to the position of Prime Minister when Badawi was moved aside. For the "RAHMAN" equation to have been settled it had to be someone whose name began with the alphabet "N" but what the entire country forgot is that his name began with a "M" his name is Mohd. Najib.

UMNO insiders close to Najib  say Mahahtir  was aware of this and as such worried that Badawi who had removed Rafidah Aziz would  do the same to Najib and Muhyuddin and replace them with Nazri to remain Prime Minsiter for the long term.

Now as some superstitious UMNO people are talking, because of what has happened they say, the next cycle has begun prematurely, and the new  equation is "MAHATHIR"  he - Najib,  has occupied the "M" prematurely and as such the next PM's name will begin with an "A" and that should mean Anwar Ibrahim they believe..

Some UMNO circles believe that Anwar is the ordained one to become Prime Minister, they say if he does not this nation is doomed, this belief is not only confined to  those who have left UMNO but with  many who remain there, and they hold firm to the fact that Anwar will be back because that is his destiny, they even go as far as saying that is why the entire "RAHMAN" equation fell apart, it is a curse they say and that is a sign for all  the Malays.

So will Anwar become our next Prime Minister?

Within UMNO there is talk about who should be dumped come the next elections, and overtures have been made by existing members from UMNO to cross over. Najib has actually got a Hobson's choice to deal with, he may have to  take all the people aligned with Muhyuddin or face the wrath of Muhyuddin's supporters, if he does that then he has to reckon with his own supporters who do not support Muhyuddin and of course he has the Kuli factor to deal with too, poor Najib.

Going it alone he does not have too much choice, he lacks the ground support Muhyuddin has raked in during Najib's tenure as PM.

Now to add insult to injury both in Sarawak and Sabah there are potential candidates who know that the only way to serve their people is to go with the opposition, they now reside in the BN fold and are awaiting their time.

The opposition have learned their lesson from the last elections and the elections when Semangat and PBS had a coalition so, now they have decided to play it cool and quiet, and  whilst Najib goes on his rampage of the opposition = the opposition is on a quiet rampage of  the BN themselves in a vote us or vote them it does not make a difference campaign in the Eastern corridor.

Doubtful seats like Sungei Siput have been strengthened for the opposition with the detention of their MP under the EO. Neutrals are moving to the opposition as Najib together with his not so intelligent cousin tries all the wrong things in desperation. 

Surprising though the UMNO's intelligence unit that used to garner all the information for their bosses  and keep them  fully appraised of such situations does not seem to be that intelligent anymore, the people are not giving them the news they once used to acquire so easily. Now it seems they are more preoccupied with finding out what Ambiga is after next and all intelligence is lacking in the handling of the situations that arise.

It could also mean that UMNO intelligence reports are being channeled to others in UMNO and not the Najib camp.

If UMNO was shocked by the results of the last elections the next one  is going to be a disaster, a complete disaster.

The Rosmah Factor
Picture before plastics
Perhaps the biggest ace up Muhyuddin's sleeve is Rosmah.

This  self proclaimed "First Lady," is being touted as a woman who does not know her  place. The Malays in  general, are disgusted with her behaviour and this could be Najib's biggest mistake, his inability as a Malay husband to keep her in place so they say.

Rosmah is being equated with Maria Antoinette and Imelda Marcos.

Ministers and deputy ministers have to Kow Tow to her every needs, the minister of foreign affairs is made to look like her assistant at times., and whist she goes on making many in UMNO angry to Muhyuddin's delight, his supporters highlight  her extravagance, and arrogance to gain more support for Muhyuddin.

Muhyuddin they say has the clout to take on his boss right now, he has enough support to even call and EGM, but Muhyuddin is playing the game the "Malay way," quiet and humble, he will not go in to oust his boss unless his supporters demand that of him, and he is biding his time. When the supporters will make such a call is Muhyuddin's call though, but he can't be seen outwardly to do so, he is a Malay and he unlike many others knows the game pretty well they say. and he will make the call when the time is yellow, ripe I mean.

In desperationthe extent of sending to his cousin the minister of home affairs, the not so intelligent Hishamuddin Hussein Onn, tries to fix things to make Najib look strong and invincible, but instead creates a mess of the situations time and time again.

The handling of the Bersih Rally, the deportation of the French Lawyer who was here to provide advice  to an NGO on the Scorpene scandal  and attend public dinners to give speeches, which may have  revealed if there was a Najib and Rosmah involvement in it, has given his opponents not only in the opposiiton but UMNO as well a lot of reason to get the people to doubt his integrity..

The action of the Trio on the alleged sex scandal involving Anwar Ibrahim the doctored video, which the government went to extraordinary lengths to prove was authentic, except for the fact that the man in the tape was not Anwar Ibrahim  has put a huge dent into the credibility of the Prime Minister. Even die hard UMNO supporters were shocked to the extent the Trio went to, and Najib's support for them turned many against him. Neither he, the Trio and even Anwar for that matter realise the amount of support it has taken away from the Malays for Najib and UMNO.

In Kedah the resentment of UMNO grows by the day, it is said that Mukhriz wil like his father in 1969 lose his seat at the next General Elections a move engineered by both the Muhyuddin and the Najib camps, to keep Mahathir and Mukhriz away from aany aspirations to become PM soon, both of them hope to be there for the long haul and Mukhriz is seen as an irritant, the ground work has already begun and Mukhriz looks like he is being prepared for the slaughter.

Najib has to take action and he has to take it fast, time is not on his side, and if he is thinking of retaining his position which he may be able to do with a much thinner majority though, he has call for an elections as soon as possible.

For Najib  the time is ripe for elections and like most fruits Ripe is Yellow.
