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.

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.
