Oh Danny Boy

According to the Malaysian Insider, Danny "Rashdan quits MAS" and had "been under pressure since reports surfaced that they flouted the airline’s prohibition on bringing their toddler to the first-class cabin."

I am no insider in MAS affairs, read the Master, blogger Another Brick In The Wall, for the ins and outs of the former CEO, Mohammed Rashdan Mohd Yusof, and most especially where MAS is concerned.

Being a lowly blogger, I say fare thee well Danny Rashdan.

Here is a low down on the MAS Queen Park Rangers jersey sponsorship and their official announcements and the latest that is mind boggling to say the least.

Judge for yourself.

This is an announcement (Reference No MA-110915-55414) from Bursa Malaysia with "Description : Malaysian Airline System Berhad ("MAS" or "the Company") Signs Sponsorship Deal With Queens Park Rangers, United Kingdom (UK)" and the document opens with a same heading, Announcement Details/Table Section :
"MAS wishes to announce that the Company had on 12 September 2011 signed the sponsorship deal with Queens Park Rangers Football Club (QPR) of United Kingdom.."
That MAS announcement was dated 14 September 2011.

The key word is "SIGNS". What does "sign" mean?

This month on the 17th, Bursa Malaysia made the following announcement (Reference No MA-120511-62916) from MAS - "Malaysian Airline System Berhad wishes to announce that it had on 16 May 2012 entered into a Sponsorship Agreement with Queens Park Rangers Football Club (hereinafter referred to as QPR) following the announcement on 12 September 2011. The relevant informations are as per attachment", from the attached document,
Malaysian Airline System Berhad (hereinafter referred to as MAS) wishes to announce that it had on 16 May 2012 entered into a Sponsorship Agreement ("QPR Agreement") with Queens Park Rangers Football Club (hereinafter referred to as QPR) following the announcement on 12 September 2011 that it will become the Official Home Jersey Sponsor of QPR for the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League (BPL) Season.
What type of announcements were MAS giving to the Malaysian share exchange regulators?

From what I know, announcements have an effect on the share prices of the relevant company making them, and should not be taken lightly without dispensation.

A day after that sponsorship was disclosed, 15 September, MAS made this disclosure to Bursa (same Reference No MA-110915-55414) -
"A formal agreement to this effect is still being negotiated and is expected to be executed on or before 30th September 2011. Upon its execution an appropriate announcement including the sponsorship amount will be disclosed to Bursa Malaysia."
Also, what kind of agreement is this when MAS signs to be the "Official Home Jersey Sponsor for the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League (BPL) Season" after the BPL league season is over?

All this under the watch of Danny boy.

Of Policemen, Lawyers and Politics : Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them

Yesterday, in "Anwar claims symbolic win after former prosecutor joins legal team"-
Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim claimed a symbolic victory today in having the man who unsuccessfully prosecuted him for sodomy join his legal team to defend an illegal assembly charge pointing out that someone who was in government did not want to be a part of what he called the “dirtiness”

Anwar has repeated his charge that the latest charge against him is politically-motivated, and said that former Solicitor-General II Datuk Yusof Zainal Abiden’s entry into his legal team was “meaningful” to him and a “positive development”
This is nothing new nor earth shattering. Small potato news.

Lawyers changing sides.

Karpal defending Anwar is a more shocking change of side.

After all, most if not many, except first time voters in 2008 and the GE this time round who were aged 12 and 6 years old respectively then, know that it was Karpal Singh who first exposed the dastardly acts of Anwar Bin Ibrahim -
Tuan R. Karpal Singh: Khasnya, Tuan Speaker, ini adalah satu perkara yang saya ada bangkitkan dalam Dewan yang mulia ini pada 22 Oktober tahun ini. lni adalah mengenai dua surat yang ada ditulis, dua aduan yang dibuat kepada Yang Amat Berhormat Perdana Menteri. Satu adalah ini, Tuan Speaker,jika saya boleh baca, 'Pengakuan Bersumpah oleh seorang, Azizan bin Abu Bakar '. Pada 22 Oktober, saya tidak memberi butir-butir surat sumpah ini dan saya ada merayu kepada Timbalan Perdana Menteri untuk mengambil tindakan. Apa yang beliau ada menjawab ialah bahawa perkara ini ada dalam tangan Peguam Negara. OIeh itu, beliau tidak teIjejas dengan apa yang ada dibuat oleh Peguam Negara dan menunggu keputusan Peguam Negara.

Tuan Speaker, hari ini adalah hari yang akhir persidangan Dewan ini. Sampai sekarang tidak ada mendapat apa-apa daripada Peguam Negara mengenai perkara ini. Tohmahan yang ada dibuat ke atas Timbalan Perdana Menteri adalah serius, saya baca bukan semua bahagian, tetapi apa yang penting di sini:

'Pengakuan Bersumpah Dengan nama Allah Yang Maha Pemurah Lagi Maha Pengasih, saya Azizan bin Abu Bakar dengan ini membuat pengakuan bersumpah bahawa saya telah menjadi mangsa hubungan sejenis yakni homoseksual dengan Anwar bin Ibrahim yang kini memangku jawatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri. Perbuatan terkutuk ini telah dilakukan untuk beberapa kali sekitar tahun 1992 tanpa kerelaan saya. Ianya kerap berlaku di hotel-hotel mewah seperti PJ Hilton, Hyatt Saujana dan Holiday Villa tanpa pengetahuan umum dan isterinya. Buat makluman, saya merupakan bekas pemandu peribadi kepada isterinya iaitu Datin Seri Wan Azizah.

Tuan Yang di-Pertua: Yang Berhormat, cukuplah.

Karpal Singh: Ada yang lain di sini, Tuan Speaker.

Tuan Yang di-Pertua: Cukuplah.

Tuan R. Karpal Singh: Bukan terbang, ini adalah satu surat bersumpah, bukan surat layang
(Edited, full Hansard here)

The day before, it was "Ex-CID chief joins PAS, says to strengthen Islamic efforts".

Another retiree, ex-Criminal Investigation Department (CID) director, Datuk Fauzi Shaari, joins PAS.

News worthy no doubt but what is more interesting is this little snippet from the report -
The ex-Criminal Investigation Department CID director the third highest office in the force was reported by Harakah as saying he had joined PAS after being confident he had not been involved in any criminal activities while in the force.
Now, isn't that a rather odd statement to make?

Checking the source, Harakah Daily, it was exactly as reported by The Insidious.

"Datuk Fauzi Shaari serah borang sertai PAS"-
Beliau turut menjelaskan, penyertaan dalam PAS itu dibuat selepas yakin dirinya tidak terlibat dalam sebarang kes jenayah semasa berada dalam pasukan polis.
Am still wondering why it was necessary to make that extraordinary statement.

Also mentioned in The Insidious was that -
Fauzi was rumoured to be joining PAS a month ago along with former Bukit Aman commercial crimes investigation chief Datuk Ramli Yusoff and ex-Umno Cabinet minister Tan Sri Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir.
Tan Sri Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir is also small potatoes and nothing new when compared to the more high ranking and senior UMNO stalwart, Tengku Razaleigh, who actually joined the opposition, leading Semangat 46 as Gagasan Rakyat.

Datuk Ramli Yusoff, the ex-Commercial Crimes director, came into the limelight when he was charged in 3 high profile cases, one in which the then highest ranking police officer, Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Musa Hassan, was a prosecution witness in a case in the Sabah sessions court.

Fugitive blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin, took the opportunity to brand the ex-IGP a "liar" solely on legal jargon in the decision by then sessions court judge, Supang Lian, acquitting Datuk Ramli.

A case of the enemy of my enemy is my friend perhaps.

Datuk Ramli was also acquitted in the two other charges and all 3 acquittals upheld when "MACC appeal dismissed against ex-Sabah Police Commissioner" and "Two courts uphold Ramli Yusof acquittals

It is politically "correct" nowadays to charge the judiciary to be compliant to the Executive. They are silent when court decisions, like those for Datuk Ramli, that went against the MACC prove otherwise.

In fact, the sessions court judge, Supang Lian has been promoted to High Court judge.

But the Bar Council has the other take on the Datuk Ramli case when it endorsed the Insidious, "In anti-graft fight, another case, another loss" -
Malaysia’s much-hyped fight against graft is headed nowhere unless there is a seismic shift in the competence of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

But this is what Sessions Court Judge Supang Lian had to say "The prosecution failed to prove a prima facie case and the accused deserves to be acquitted and discharged"

Another big case another resounding defeat in the court room.
Taking that to mean if the MACC and the AG Chambers had been competent, Datuk Ramli could have been found guilty.

Of special note in Datuk Ramli's cases, "MACC appeal dismissed against ex-Sabah Police Commissioner"  he was "represented by Datuk Muhammad Shafee Abdullah and James Tsai, was charged on Nov 19, 2007 on charges that he had abused his powers as Bukit Aman Commercial Crimes Department director for his pecuniary gain by ordering and using a Royal Malaysia Police Cessna Caravan aircraft to take him on an aerial surveillance of two lots in Ulu Tungku, Lahad Datu, in which his real estate company Kinsajaya Sdn Bhd had an interest" and in Two courts uphold Ramli Yusof acquittals,  "Ramli was represented by Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah while DPP Mohd Sophian Zakaria prosecuted."

Yes,  the same lawyer Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, who then represented the MACC in Royal Commission of Inquiry into the death of Teoh Beng Hock.

Do keep lawyer Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah in mind for later on and Datuk Ramli is a qualified lawyer himself doing very well, thank you -
Dato’ Ramli graduated with a LLB (Bachelor of Law) with Honours from University Islam Antarabangsa (“UIA”) in 1987 and he was registered as a Peguambela and Peguamcara since 1990. He also holds a LLM (Master of Law) in Commercial and Corporate from University College London (“UCL”) in London.
as Deputy Chairman of Ho Hup.

Another enemy of the enemy, Tan Sri Musa Hassan. is my friend, is another police officer, former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Mat Zain Ibrahim. Though I don't know whether he's doing just as well as Datuk Ramli, no thank you.

Here is one loose cannon going about to anyone willing to hear like The Insidious or the Malaysiakinki, about the former IGP, Tan Sri Musa's, "transgressions" especially in Anwar Sodomy 1.0 and the black eye incident.

Before proceeding, read in blogger Just Read!, "So, Najib is 'chief of criminals'?" -
Back to this police melodrama. I was having coffee with a few friends at a hotel in PJ last night when a text message came in. It reads: "Ramli Yusof (ex-CCID chief) says Musa Hassan (ex-IGP) provided protection to Johor kingpin Goh Cheng Poh aka Tengku Goh. Former KL CID boss Mat Zain Ibrahim also asked the govt to reopen investitagion into the murder of Altantuya..."

I immediately showed it to my friends, one of whom is a diplomat who had a good laugh. He said: "We don't trust people like this, Jay (he's fond of calling me by that name). Listening to them is wasting time. And when they are on the opposition bench, better not listen at all.

"If they are honest, they wouldn't be caring too much about their position and opportunity to rise when they were still in service. They should have made such exposure there and then and not wait until retirement."
Thought I'd mention that just to keep things in perspective.

Back to Mat Zain, as "SAC II Mat Zain Ibrahim, the head of the Special Police Team investigating the police assault on former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim" in implicating not only Tan Sri Musa but also AG Tan Sri Gani Patail  of having "duped Dr M into sacking Anwar", inadvertently absolved any wrong doing and debunks conspiracy theories of Tun Mahathir getting rid of Anwar to stay in power -
He also accused Musa and Abdul Gani of fabricating the case for their joint benefit but insisted that Dr Mahathir himself was not involved as he had repeatedly told the police, including Mat Zain during his investigations into the black eye incident, that there should be no cover up.
Read the above together with these two relevant excerpts in Go ahead, Mohtar, make my day, by Anwar Ibrahim, Sungai Buloh Prison, May 20, 1999 -
6. In dealing with the issue of my injuries, Mohtar deliberately ignored they report submitted by police investigator ACP Mat Zain Ibrahim, which implicates Gani and Deputy Public Prosecutor Azhar Mohamad. They plotted to downplay the findings of doctors and specialists who examined me. Instead, Mohtar appointed his own consultant, Dr Abdul Rahman Yusof, who gave his findings without examining me. Mohtar said in a statement that some of my claims were false. The royal commission which inquired into my injuries found, on the contrary, that Rahim Noor’s assault was so severe that I could have died. Mohtar’s negligence and feebleness in handling the case – how he dragged his feet before acting upon the police and medical reports -- were plain for all to see.

7. The statutory declaration of lawyer Manjeet Singh Dhillon implicates Mohtar, Gani and Azhar in a scheme to pressure Nallakarupan to disgrace me in exchange for a guarantee of release from prosecution that could lead to the death sentence. But Dato Nalla would rather face prosecution than lie.
In this Utusan report the only mention Anwar has of Mat Zain is -
Anwar juga memberitahu siasatan bahawa beliau pertama kali memberikan kenyataan terperinci mengenai serangan itu kepada ketua pasukan penyiasat khas yang diketuai ACP Mat Zain Ibrahim tetapi tidak memberikan butiran tertentu terutama yang merujuk kepada nama-nama pegawai kanan yang terlibat.

"Saya memberitahunya bahawa saya harus merahsiakannya. Pasukan penyiasat khas itu terdiri daripada para pegawai polis dan ditubuhkan di bawah arahan perdana menteri yang sebelum ini mengatakan kemungkinan kecederaan itu dilakukan oleh saya sendiri," katanya.

Pada peringkat ini, Anuar memberitahu beliau bahawa suruhanjaya telah menerima laporan itu dan Anwar boleh mengulasnya lebih lanjut jika beliau ada fakta lain yang boleh membantu siasatan itu.

Semasa memberikan keterangan, Anwar telah diingatkan beberapa kali agar tidak memberikan keterangan berdasarkan dengar cakap tetapi memberikan keterangan berdasarkan pengetahuannya sendiri.
Anwar does not mention any "report submitted by police investigator ACP Mat Zain Ibrahim" worse still Mat Zain did not disclose a more "heinous" crime -
"But Mat Zain noted that according to testimony by Hospital Kuala Lumpur doctor Dr Zahari Noor, Musa, who later rose through the ranks to become Inspector-General of Police, had “stolen” Anwar’s blood samples on October 15, 1998.

“But at that point, Anwar was already charged in court and waiting for a hearing date. The process of gathering evidence should have been completed by then."
to the Royal Commission of Inquiry of the black eye incident. Tellingly what "testimony" is Mat Zain referring to when "at that point, Anwar was already charged in court and waiting for a hearing date"? The trial had not begun. See The Star Chronology of events.

Surely such damning testimony from Anwar and Mat Zain would have been taken seriously into cognizance by, according to the Bar Council a highly regarded judge - Tan Sri Anuar Zainal Abidin, "who headed the independent Commission of Inquiry to investigate the police assault on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim while in their custody" that even Aliran "welcomed the transparent manner in which the Commission of Inquiry has conducted its hearing thus far that elicited Rahim's confession."

Getting back to Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah who defended Datuk Ramli and won, and Anwar from Sungai Buloh Prison exclaiming "But Dato Nalla would rather face prosecution than lie".. well,
Senator Datuk S. Nalla­karuppan has handed over a video tape as part of his “evidence” in a RM100mil defamation suit filed by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim against him.

The Malaysian United Indian Party (MUIP) chief handed over the tape, sealed inside an envelope, to his lawyer Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah in the presence of reporters yesterday at the Jalan Duta court complex lobby here - The Star "Nalla hands over ‘evidence’ in RM100mil defamation suit"
I'm done but it's too early in this wee hour for ice-cream.

Latest update nothing to do with this post 12.12PM:

This has got to be the most outrageous, ludicrous and mother of all announcements: A MAS read

Malaysian Airline System Berhad (hereinafter referred to as MAS) wishes to announce that it had on 16 May 2012 entered into a Sponsorship Agreement ("QPR Agreement") with Queens Park Rangers Football Club (hereinafter referred to as QPR) following the announcement on 12 September 2011 that it will become the Official Home Jersey Sponsor of QPR for the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League (BPL) Season.

This announcement is dated 17 May 2012

*The Barclays Premier League (BPL) Season ended with that dramatic Manchester City win on 13 May 2012.

I am Guilty Until Proven Innocent But I Feel Good

The Sundaily says I am "Presumed Guilty". Yes folks, someone, the opposition or even the government, if frequent allegations of trumps are to believed, can do some pretty ugly things, using "your" identity. And you're headed for some nasty discovery expedition of National Geographic proportions with the authorities.

But I feel good today. I won't be admonishing Nazri or Hisham or Gani, whoever authored such an uncommon sense law, on account of what is reported in a mainstream media.

The opposition MPs must be sleeping on this, don't you think?

If anyone is feeling blue today, cannot blame them. Manchester City and Chelsea has many seeing red.

But I feel good today. The Reds managed to prevent total blues even if it was the Carling.

They say, no, Mourinho himself says he is the "Special One".

But I feel good today. I say Matteo is the "Only One". All the best to him.

Some may have probably heard about Martin Jalleh. I am not presumed. I am guilty when I opine this guy is an extreme right Christian with footprints of the opposition.

But I feel good today. I won't say nasty things about the silly man and his latest in the insidious, "The mutation of Tunku Aziz — Martin Jalleh".

To quote the same from MJ (the real one is deceased), all I will say is  - "The excerpts of his article and his glaringly contradictory silly stance today are sufficient to reveal the transparent and telling self-inflicted tragedy of the man"

Feeling good, I append what Tunku Aziz has said and readers can decide whether MJ, the fake one, is spitting in the right direction.
I at no time had withdrawn my support for Bersih. I have always supported Bersih for what Bersih stands for. I've spoken for free and fair elections on several occasions. Not as vice-chairman of DAP but in my other capacities. So to say that Tunku is opposed to Bersih is something that the party and Pakatan Rakyat had been working hard to promote, is a little disingenuous.

And somehow it smacks of a reluctance or inability to see the difference between supporting free and fair election activity, and not supporting these activities if they were illegal

I support Bersih but I do not support breaking the law. As simple as that. But you check that rebuke of me and there's no mention that I was not against Bersih but merely against sitting at Dataran Merdeka because the court had ordered the participants not to breach it and the owner of the land. - Tunku Aziz. Full version of the Q&A with Tunku Aziz
Because, I feel good today.

Blogger Note:

Since it has been a Happy Blue Year and the colours of the Barisan Nasional is Blue, it bodes well to have the 13th General elections this year.

BERSIH, Soros Open Society Foundations, Abetting Fraud

BERSIH's "BERSIH 2.0: Two Steps Rakyat Can Take to Fight the Fraud"
"New evidences of fraud continue to emerge without any concrete action taken to remedy the fraud."
Now for the most asinine but clever, to the unsuspecting, mind-boggling first step -
The first and most important step is to “Keluar Mengundi, Lawan Penipuan!” (Come out and vote, fight the fraud). BERSIH 2.0 calls on all registered voters to use your vote as a key tool in mitigating the fraud.
Guys, these are the eminent elders of civil society:
The Steering Committee of BERSIH 2.0 comprises:
Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan (Co-Chairperson), Datuk A. Samad Said (Co-Chairperson), Ahmad Shukri Abdul Razab, Andrew Ambrose, Andrew Khoo, Anne Lasimbang, Arul Prakkash, Arumugam K., Awang Abdillah, Dr Farouk Musa, Hishamuddin Rais, Liau Kok Fah, Maria Chin Abdullah, Matthew Vincent, Niloh Ason, Richard Y W Yeoh, Dr Subramaniam Pillay, Dato’ Dr Toh Kin Woon, Dr Wong Chin Huat, Dato’ Yeo Yang Poh and Zaid Kamaruddin
who lead thousands by their noses perpetuating spin and deceit.

The Spin
The whole election process is a fraud.  BERSIH, calls on voters to vote despite fraudulent electoral rolls and all other forms of election fraud.

The Deceit
Formula: Election Commission=Barisan Nasional Government=Fraud
Therefore: Vote against Barisan Nasional = Vote against Fraud

Conclusion
BERSIH, by the same token, calling voters to vote despite fraudulent electoral rolls and all other forms of election fraud and therefore abetting fraud, are the true fraudsters.

BERSIH, SOROS OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS

Member of BERSIH steering committee with ties to foreign Soros NGO foundations, hiding his track, is Arul Prakkash.

Right: KOMAS' lead co-ordinator, Arul Prakkash and EngageMedia assistant trainer, Mien Lor, assisting Brenda Danker during a hands-on session ... [ Komas: Latest News & Events - www.komas.org ]



Blogger calls on Arul Prakkash to explain why the above link has been deleted and what are KOMAS ties with Engagemedia?

About Engagemedia.


Engagemedia and Komas, "EngageMedia delivers skills training to Komas "



BERSIH, KOMAS and Southeast Asian Centre for e-Media (SEACEM) at JOM PANTAU and more Soros Open Society ties.





About Southeast Asian Centre for e-Media (SEACEM).



Malaysians beware! This is the actual motive of BERSIH and the recent riotous BERSIH 3.0.

To create instability and provoke Police actions.

BERSIH by their highly trained NGO cohorts like KOMAS will then widely disseminate videos of "police brutality" in various medium which incite hatred against the Government.

If by chance it results in regime change, so much the better, for "democracy" sake.

Who is George Soros and his Open Society here, here, here and here.

*More Engagemedia with SUARAM and others.

One of the earliest reports online in the Sundaily on that infamous BERSIH 3.0 day, first Posted on 28 April 2012 - 05:14pm and updated 28 April 2012 - 08:24pm "Suaram decries police action against protesters", had already started the "police brutality" allegations.

No surprises if SUARAM comes out with video "proof".

Oon His Knees Bowing, Hail DAP, Good Riddance Tunku (Part 2)

PART 2: OON YEOH, THE LOYAL DAP LACKEY












His blog is called the Oon Yeoh New Media Guy, this is the link that reveals hides his rocking love for the DAP entitled "3 Hot Days in Penang - Day 1 (DAP Rocks Penang)" -

The missing link is here.

Rocking DAP pics by Oon, the DAP lackey. I like the caption on this one. Caesar Lim arriving.













"Guan Eng arrives in style, carried by supporters from one end of the padang all the way to the stage."

This closet DAP sycophant writes about ex-DAP vice-chairman, Tunku Abdul Aziz and the DAP PR disaster, who, unwanted for an honest view, Tunku Aziz quits DAP.

The lackey calls it, "Irreconcilable differences".

Trying to be smart it only shows toady Oon to be a toad.

If of an honorable man who espouse observing the rule of law, the irreconcilable difference is one who would do otherwise, encouraging transgression of the law.

Here is someone who probably could not get anyone to speak for him and Tunku Aziz obliging a fellow DAP man,
"I don’t know the man personally. The closest interaction I’ve had with him was when he gave the opening speech at the launch of my book Najib’s First 100 Days in mid-2008"


And like leaders of the opposition, Oon Yeoh lies thru his bloody teeth, "Najib 1st 100 days: honeymoon or not?"
GERAK BUDAYA invites you to a book launch, Najib’s First 100 Days – No Honeymoon, by Oon Yeoh. This book will be launched by Tunku Abdul Aziz, a senator and former president of the Malaysian chapter of Transparency International on:

Date : August 12, 2009 (Wednesday)
Time : 8.00 pm – 10.00 pm
Venue : Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall
No. 1, Jalan Maharajalela, 50150 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



Ulasan Buku: Najib's first 100 days-no honey moon -
Tarikh/Tahun, Terbit: 2009


Come on lah toad, trying to dissociate yourself from Tunku Aziz and do some hiding ah?

That should suffice but I have to give him a kick up his backside.

Oon toad, you wrote -
"Rather, Hong believes that “the Tunku not only appears to be out of step with his party but also out of touch with public sentiment”. I think this is spot on.
If obeying the law is out of touch with public sentiment, you are the type of public person I will avoid with a 20 foot pole.

Oon His Knees Bowing, Hail DAP, Good Riddance Tunku (Part 1)

First father, Julius Lim, gives you a welcome mat. They "incentivise" you with a position. Then, when things don't go their way, son Augustus Lim lets the dogs out.

These rabid dogs don't just bark, they bite.

So when your are in a place where rabid dogs bark incessantly day and night, worse still they bite, you either get rid of dangerous dogs or you move out.

So it was when DAP vice-president and ex-Senator, Tunku Abdul Aziz spoke his mind, he was not only punished, he was fed to the dogs.

The welcome mat is now littered with dog shit.

And when the DAP vice-president, Tunku Abdul Aziz did the honourable thing by leaving a party that no longer welcomed him, out poops Augustus Lim asking the ex-Senator to reconsider.

What a bloody hypocrite.

UP NEXT PART 2: OON YEOH, THE LOYAL DAP LACKEY

Marina Mahathir and Some Guy Named Sam Peh -The State of Malaysian Media

I thought deep and hard about what these two writers opined, both appearing in that alternative, The Malaysian Insider, and write what my conscience bids.

First Sam Peh, I was tempted to make fun of the name (am being honest), and his two sen worth, Malaysia’s sad media – Sam Peh.

When he picks the Bar (he was also there) and a liar Xeno, to make his point, you know where the person is coming from.

Well, choosing a portal that never learns prone to apologies, as his choice mouthpiece, says much about the person's discerning faculties.

That and all I can say, with "Yesterday more than 1,200 lawyers voted at a Bar Council EGM to condemn police brutality at Bersih 3.0 but the Umno owned paper focussed on 16 little known lawyers who dissented. And to make matters worse the report focussed on whether the quorum was reached (which it was) and whether all those who turned up were lawyers. What rubbish reporting", 1,200 lawyers should be enough personnel and munition to sue the NST if the report slandered the Bar.

Now for Marina Mahathir, sadly also.

Blogger wonders why she does not use her column, in The Star where she contributes, to disclose the state of affairs behind the scenes, after all these years.

She has enough experience to slip through self-censorship without notice, of her latest experience.

That said, I will agree with her that the mainstream media and their journos should publish and report without fear or favour, with the strictest proviso - responsible and truthful reporting.

Digressing, reading the Malaysian Insider report, "Self-censorship futile, says Marina Mahathir", I feel vindicated, even if only a bit.
“I’ve been writing there for something like 23 years I’m a bit sentimental about it I do know that a lot of people just read me there and nowhere else so I feel a bit reluctant to just completely stop ” she said.
She does need the the attention.

Continuing, the Home Ministry should not be overly sensitive and seen to be high-handed when reports and articles run counter to the government's political point of views and stand.

We deride the opposition DAP in the Tunku Abdul Aziz affair and admonish them, rightfully, as false champions of freedom of everything especially freedom of speech and expression. Yet, we are seen not offering the same press freedom when the government is at the other short end of an issue.

It is altogether another matter when publications crosses the line on religious and racial issues, a very thin line.

Therefore, I beg to differ with her Erykah Badu thing. The Star did the write thing to apologise whether before or after facts that arose.

What both Sam Peh and Marina imply are that Malaysian mainstream media are biased, with deliberate intent or with a twist, of the arm, to favour the ruling establishment.

Media bias is not a Malaysian phenomena, the "Majority in U.S. Continues to Distrust the Media, Perceive Bias", for example.

Apart from The Star and the NST, are The Sundaily, The Malay Mail, and I want to add The Edge Malaysia, frequently self censoring and biased?

Ten ways for an altered state of Malaysian media:

1. The mainstream media must give personalities like Ambiga and members of the opposition like  Lim Guan Eng and Anwar Ibrahim more exposure for the reading public.

2. Give more permits for Chinese vernacular newspapers.

3. As the Printing Press and Publications Act has been loosened, remove those inconvenient caveats imposed on the Harakah for members only, The Rocket for members only, The Herald for Catholics only. The non member Chinese also want to read the Harakah, the non member Malays also want to read the Rocket and everyone wants to read The Catholic Herald.

4. Since there are only government controlled public listed newspapers, The Harakah and The Rocket should merge as a single publishing entity and apply for a permit and the Home Ministry should grant one without conditions (see #3) that are as effective as remedies for the common cold.

5. Pakatan Rakyat can call for ubah donations to take over The Edge Malaysia and make offer the can't refuse.

6. Since Home Ministers past and present have always been questioned for their wisdom on the subject in question, appoint someone from the opposition to the post. Someone widely seen to uphold the rule of law, for example Tungku Abdul Aziz.

7. Police must not use extreme force with officers of the press, foreign or local, in any situation. Especially local press corps as they are only doing their job to give the government's view.

8. All state governments should publish and distribute free of charge, publications of special interest to the Rakyat even to places of worship, like the Selangor State Government's "Selangor Times".

9. Since foreign mainstream media are often cited as free and fair, offer foreign media moguls opportunites and incentives to invest, base their operations and publish news in Malaysia, Rupert Murdoch comes to mind.

10. Do away ALL laws not loosen laws pertaining to printing and publication, allow everyone and anyone to feel free to print anything and everything without exception. There must be no restrictions. As a gesture of sincerity on the part of the government, by legislation:

(a) The BAR Council be appointed sole legal representatives and custodian of printing and publishing.

(b) Ten copies of the publication, within 48 hours after printing, must be sent to the BAR Council, to protect individuals/groups/entities from any legal proceedings, claims and suits should any publication result in conflict, riots, damage to goods and property, and any other injury the Bar Council deem fit.

(c)  Laws pertaining to slander and defamation will still apply to any publication to protect the reputation of individuals, groups, entities  and lawyers incomes.
That should make everyone happy.

Blogger note:

PAS and DAP should seriously consider merging their print mediums, Harakah and Rocket. The same silly caveat should not be a problem as the enlarged entity would still be for members only. It would provide for some very politically and socially informative, vibrant and entertaining fare. At last, a fair and free-for-all newspaper.

Post Script

As for free to air and satellite TV and radio medium, when Pakatan Rakyat takes over - it will be status quo. Believe you, me.

Pakatan Rakyat Consensus Trap

"Hudud if PAS stronger than allies, says ulama chief"
If we have enough majority if PAS is stronger than our allies we will implement even if not with the current partners we have in Pakatan, may be there will be other pacts that will lend us their support ”  Ulama Council chief Datuk Harun Taib was quoted as saying by the New Straits Times.
Bottom line, DAP to the largest extent and PKR playing both sides against the middle, are leading everyone by the nose.

Non-Muslims in general have concerns about Sharia laws only in that it will encroach their religious or secular rights.

I cannot say it's not a genuine concern.

PAS will say that it will not but concerns will remain.

Now PAS has openly brushed aside whatever pakatan the Pakatan Rakyat deceitfully proclaim, governing by consensus, Buku Jinggah, agree to disagee and all other assurances.

Media statement (2) by Lim Guan Eng in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, 12th October 2011:
DAP confirms that a PR meeting comprising of DAP, PKR and PAS top leaders were held in DAP Headquarters in the evening of 10 October 2011

The PR meeting reaffirmed the common policy stand of the three parties as contained in the PR Common Policy Framework 2009, Buku Jingga 2010 and PR Joint Statement 28th September 2011 that hudud is not the common agenda of PR for the forthcoming general election, which will also be the policy basis of PR after the next general election. Any change of policy can only be reached by common consensus with the agreement of all the three parties.

The Enakmen Kanun Jenayah Syariah II Negeri Kelantan (1993) was discussed at the meeting. At the meeting, DAP stressed the party's consistent stand in not agreeing with the hudud law and explained that the hudud law is not in line with the Federal Constitution. The meeting concluded with both DAP and PAS agreeing to disagree on the hudud law.

As the hudud law is not mentioned in the PR Common Policy Framework or in Buku Jingga, it is therefore not PR policy. Only policies mentioned in the Common Policy Framework, Buku Jingga or agreed to by all 3 parties will be implemented in a PR government.

Amongst DAP leaders present were National Chair Karpal Singh, Lim Kit Siang and myself; PAS leaders present included PAS Deputy President Mat Sabu, Secretary-General Mustafa Ali and Kelantan EXCO members whilst Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, PKR Deputy President Azmin Ali and Perak PKR Chair Dr Mohd Nur Manuty represented PKR.

*Lim Guan Eng, DAP Secretary General MP for Bagan

These are the biggest culprits putting wool over everyone's eyes.

Take this PAS proclamation either way, Pakatan Rakayat election tactics or genuine intent,
non-Muslims will have to make choices come the next general elections.

If it is a Pakatan election tactic, allowing PAS to play the religious card to increase it's Muslim votes , non-Muslims especially those in Pakatan Rakyat who have Hudud concerns, take heed. Should the tactic prove successful and PAS forms the government and the majority party in parliament, your concerns will be greater.

Election tactics can result to give PAS their genuine intent.

If you told anyone in 2004, that Pakatan Rakyat would deny BN the 2/3 majority and even take over 5 states in the following general elections, you would have been branded a lunatic.

Anything is possible.

If it is a genuine intent and in my honest opinion it is, non-Muslims concerns remain.

A vote for PAS is a vote for PKR, if their "PR Common Policy Framework 2009, Buku Jingga 2010 and PR Joint Statement 28th September 2011" and all sorts of other collective agreements are to  be believed.

PAS WILL implement HUDUD, the logical consequence of a vote for PAS to benefit the DAP and PKR for a Pakatan Rakyat government, can result in their genuine intent becoming a reality.

AS far as the PKR is concerned, they do not care who will be the majority or the consequences, just as long as their de facto leader  becomes PM.

So for all non-Muslims, especially those in the Pakatan Rakyat, a vote for PAS is a vote for Pakatan Rakyat, it is also a vote for Hudud.

If you think voting for DAP is a vote for Pakatan Rakyat as a counter measure, go ahead and take that chance - DAP will and can never be the majority in parliament. Not in our lifetime.

DAP will play act with all their ruses, Pakatan Rakyat is not the government. Their agree to disagree hypocrisy and deceipt was seriously exposed when their own vice-president was punished for disagreeing. Expect the usual fake DAP shock, rebukes and fake solidarity. They are not the government they will promise everything. They are dicing with your concerns.

When reality bites, don't go to the streets and protest, you will only have the DAP for company.

When Anwar Ibrahim Gets Caught With His Pants Down

Guys, when one is caught with his pants down, one will try to cover it up with a lie.

A liar will always be ambiguous and incoherent. 

Lets start on the eve of the disaster.

This is what the Ambiguous lady said -
We will respect the court order and remain outside Dataran,” Ambiga told a press conference here at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.
All hell then breaks loose with the helping hand of Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim, caught on video, giving the green light to blue-eyed boy Azmin Ali.

As usual, the infamous corrupted one will try to explain and deny.

It turned out to be a fiasco.

Local press cannot lie to, so the Brother goes down under on air.

ABC Radio Australia report in full, Malaysian Opposition leader denies inciting protesters
A video posted online appears to show Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim gesturing for protesters to breach a barricade that prompted a police crackdown of tear gas, water cannon and beatings.

The video shows Anwar Ibrahim smiling with yellow-shirted Bersih protesters a few metres from the barricades marking the out-of-bounds Merdeka Square and making a rolling gesture with his hands.

Two men give a thumbs up gesture to Mr Anwar, appearing to be asking his permission to breach the barrier and moments later they do.

Anwar Ibrahim has denied the accusation, saying he was merely signalling to his party's deputy president to "negotiate" with police, saying "nego, nego". However the crowd responds by shouting "masuk, masuk", meaning enter.

Correspondent: Liam Cochrane

Speaker: Anwar Ibrahim, Malaysian Opposition leader

ANWAR: No, let me put it in perspective. You cannot ignore the fact that 300,000 Malaysians of all ethnic groups came out in protest against a corrupt government involved in fraud in the elections, that is a central issue. Second, the demonstrations, the rallies had been peaceful from morning right through 3pm, 3.30pm. What was the decision? The decision was to assemble, sit down at the Merdeka Square.

Now then what happened was when we encouraged the participants to move to the right away from the Merdeka Square, they were there. They said look, we are here, to sit and wait here.

Now I then asked them - the one or two leaders of Pakatan Rakyat and the Justice Party to start negotiating what signal. How do you read?

I would have just said remove to the Dataran Merdeka.I see what the state craft of all authoritarian regimes known throughout history is to condemn the innocent victims as the villains, beat them up and then use the ministry government controlled media to justify these excesses.

Those hundreds that were beaten were not at the vicinity of those who actually transgressed the small barricades. Those hundreds who were beaten were miles away, across the streets of Kuala Lumpur, they was beaten and assaulted.

COCHRANE: Those beatings took place though once the barricades were breached, that happened while you were standing right there and a video posted online shows you in the midst of a crowd, the crowd is chanting "go in" "go in", or enter enter, and you don't appear to doing anything to stop them. Why didn't you try and stop them?

ANWAR: Please look at the video perspective. I said turn to the right, pusing kanan, right is away from the Dataran Merdeka. That's clear, don't just go the the post where then they went to (indistinct) then I sat down, I made the signal, make sure your start negotiating with the police officers.

COCHRANE: Do you think that signal was understood by the crowd around you?

ANWAR: Well, how do I communicate with 300,000 people? The small megaphone works just for people immediately around me

COCHRANE: You were communicating with some men who were just a few metres away, after you made that rolling hand gesture to them, pointing towards the barricades, at least to...

ANWAR: Not, to them. I was communicating with the deputy person in the party, to say communicate because there was growing tension. People were moving, I could see them, towards the end, to the other corner. They were already moving to the barricade. The police didn't do anything to stop them.

So I was just making this gesture, look, quickly, negotiate with the police, give them some space. What is the criminal offence of going through a city down to the Merdeka Square? Where in the world is the Merdeka Square a banned area? That's why I said, once I had encouraged people to move away, I would defend the right of the demonstrators to go in and sit at the Merdeka Square.

If the police had been responsible enough, I may disagree with them, they arrest those at the Merdeka Square. What they did was, to use that as a pretext and beat everybody up and we want to deflect the entire issue of this growing sentiment of Malaysians against injustice and corruption just because people broke through, the illegal assembly around Merdeka Square, Independence Square.

This is a classic tactic of these (indistinct) What you hear, what your read in the newspapers and the Malaysian media, not a word of the position taken by Bersih leaders or Opposition leaders.

COCHRANE: And Anwar Ibrahim we've been covering this and we've been covering in-depth the demands from the Bersih demonstrators and we've been looking at many aspects of this and in this case we're looking at your role at the barriers. I'd like to ask you, I mean, are you, the rally was supposed to be a non-partisan event, that's what the Bersih organisers called for. Are you confident your presence there and your conduct there was non-partisan

ANWAR: The rally called the non-partisan calling for free, fair elections which was condemned by the ruling party from the word go.The Bersih rally decided by the Bersih leaders that time at their discretion was, and make it very clear in all campaigns throughout all the country , we are going to be marching toward merdeka Square and sit there from 2 to 4. all the participants were well aware of that. We in the Opposition said we will support that decision. The ruling party said they would oppose the decision.

So I mean what partisanship is that? Our position, the common position in the Bersih rally was to call for free and fair elections against the fraud, corruption

COCHRANE: I think above all, that message was recieved, and that message had been going out at least in the international media. We spoke earlier to one of the steering committee members for the Bersih rallies and she says she wants the police to investigate just how the breaching of the barricades took place. Do you have confidence that the police can carry out a thorough investigation of what happened there?

AWARE: If our call for an election commission under the commission cannot be trusted, how do you get the police to investigate where the excesses by and large are by the police. That is why I did support the call by some to set up an independent commission or a royal commission of inquiry, both the DAP leaders by the chief minister of Penang and also Islam party leaders have called for an independent commission

CITRINE: Just finally do you think that the...

AWARE: The issue is the brutalities and the excesses because the barricade is just transgressing a local council by-law

COCHRANE: Certainly. The issue of the violence, the police violence against protesters, do you think that will deter people from protesting in the future or do you think it will harden their resolve

ANWAR: Well he have seen this from '98, during the reformasi, we have seen in the last Bersih rally, people were beaten up and teargassed throughout the city and yet last year people estimated about 50,000. Now we're taking abut 300,000. I mean, you can't cow people into submission by your atrocities

The call is for justice and fair elections and I have seen this growing mood. In fact after the rally, last night, and even yesterday night in some of the, our, party rallies, there is youth stormed up to me and, you know, demanded explanation why were we not encouraging people to go to Merdeka Square where we did promise them.

I said look, let them investigate, the issue now is police brutality. It's important. This is the power of enormity, I said. You know, people came in with a single mission, going to Merdeka Square to state their stand. It's beyond individual, beyond Anwar, or Bersih leaders or Opposition leaders.

The country demands this change and this is what we need to appreciate and I think the Najib administration is in complete disconnect with its stark realities of the demand. They think that we are obsolete, we are not ready for democracy

Remember we brought a team including Senator Xenophon, and what did the secretary general of UMNO say? Malaysians are not ready for democracy and freedom, we don't want riots like in Indonesia. That is the thinking of the ruling elite in this country.
Folks what can be ascertained by what Anwar himself says:

1. Everything was peaceful from morning to about 3-3.30pm. The time is not important.

What is important is everything was peaceful.

2. Whoever "they" are, "They said look, we are here, to sit and wait here".
Anwar did not say, "They said look, we are going there, to sit and wait".

This is very important to clear this ambiguity "At Dataran Merdeka" juxtaposed to Madam Ambiguous declaration of compliance.

For all intent and purposes "At Dataran Merdeka" must be taken to mean, in the context of Anwar's explanation, areas outside the barricades surrounding Dataran Merdeka.

Therefore when "They said look, we are here, to sit and wait here" it must mean outside the barricades.

It corroborates but contradicts Anwar's, "Now then what happened was when we encouraged the participants to move to the right away from the Merdeka Square, they were there. They said look, we are here, to sit and wait here" because "they were there" could not have been inside the barricades and barricades were not yet breached.

Now, if "they were there" and "They said look, we are here, to sit and wait here" why would Anwar want to encourage the "participants move to the right away from the Merdeka Square."?

Here's when the incoherence starts.

When "They said look, we are here, to sit and wait here", there is no reason for Anwar to ask "one or two leaders of Pakatan Rakyat and the Justice Party to start negotiating what signal."

How do you read more of the incoherence following "How do you read"?

Anwar also tries to divert the subject of the interview, which is, whether he gave the signal to Azmin Ali, instigating the breach.

But correspondent Liam Cochrane was dogged in pursuing the subject, asking why Anwar did not try to stop the breach.

More incoherence from Anwar with the same lame "signal was negotiate" excuse mixed with Bahasa as if it would have mattered and another lie, "I made the signal, make sure your start negotiating with the police officers."

Anwar made signals to nearby Azmin even though he had a megaphone or Azmin must be stone deaf.

Pressed further on more of his signals, Anwar replies, "Well, how do I communicate with 300,000 people? The small megaphone works just for people immediately around me."

But Anwar had no problem earlier communicating with the particpants when "They said look, we are here, to sit and wait here."

More dogged question on the subject matter by Cochrane elicited a desperate respond from the Brother, "Not, to them. I was communicating with the deputy person in the party, to say communicate because there was growing tension" so much he forgot his own blue-eyed boy's name and the "the demonstrations, the rallies (that) had been peaceful from morning right through 3pm, 3.30pm" suddenly turned into "growing tension".

What follows is more "negotiate" and another lie, and the most absurd stupidity, "Where in the world is the Merdeka Square a banned area?"

Where in the world is there another Merdeka Square?

You see, when you lie you also become desperate, talk nonsense and forget you lied.

Having asked absurdly, "Where in the world is the Merdeka Square a banned area?" he later reveals his lie with a spin, "The issue is the brutalities and the excesses because the barricade is just transgressing a local council by-law"

Anwar also added, "If the police had been responsible enough, I may disagree with them, they arrest those at the Merdeka Square" and "That's why I said, once I had encouraged people to move away, I would defend the right of the demonstrators to go in and sit at the Merdeka Square."

Are you guys getting confused and giddy with so much incoherence?

The subject of ambiguity of "at Dataran Merdeka" becomes relevant here.

What follows is some horrid English to a question of partisanship.

Anwar Ibrahim must have ESP for answering before a question could be asked but his diversion skills from the subject at hand is not lost as the subject gets lost, "The issue is the brutalities and the excesses because the barricade is just transgressing a local council by-law"

Presto, issue is now police brutality and not his hand in causing the riots.

More diversion, hey presto, "I said look, let them investigate, the issue now is police brutality".

How appropriate for Anwar to finish his on air hot air with a mention of that other fellow liar, Nick Xenophon.

PM Datuk Seri Najib Hits a Million



PM reaches a million likes and that not including me! I like.

Marina Mahathir - Spoilt

How will I describe Marina Mahathir - spoilt.

I admit I am not in her class where writing articles are concerned.

But..

But she seemed to have contracted what I call opposition supporter dunggu syndrome.

No, I did not say she is an opposition supporter, I said contracted opposition supporter dunggu syndrome.

Opposition supporter dunggu syndrome is saying something and contradicting oneself out of some expedient self inflicted ignorance.

Even her article title No, We're Not Egypt..I think...she is not sure but is sure -
This is why we are not Egypt. In this we agree with our government. We are NOT Egypt. But then why respond in such Mubarak-like fashion?
Marina, if really our police responded in Mubarak-like fashion as you suggest, you would have a Death toll from Egypt protests: At least 846.

Did our police respond like this (picture below from your own blog) Mubarak-like fashion?




That should suffice.

Another symptom of opposition supporter dunggu syndrome, the end justifies the means even if the end could be worse than the means -
And lo and behold, the Muslim Brotherhood won many seats. Well, that’s democracy, it doesn’t necessarily give you the best government.
Out of respect, to your father whom I have the utmost admiration for, which you seem to have lost, I will spare you the explicit tirade I reserve for the most deserving.

In fact, I will mitigate for your sudden opposition supporter dunggu syndrome.

Nine years out of the limelight since your father's retirement is a long time.

You yearn for the VIP attention as first daughter of a famous prime minister.

Yes, life is such a bore when you are no more a centre of attention.

BERSIH 2.0 was an opportunity you could not resist to be in the limelight again.

You wrote about your BERSIH 2.0 escapade and duly received the attention you sought.

The 187 comments is testimony, including one I had an issue with because Tun Mahathir is your father.

So, when BERSIH 3.0 was announced, you saw another opportunity to increase the attention to yourself.

This time you came out guns blazing with your latest BERSIH 3.0 No, We're Not Egypt thingy.

Well, reality is hard to swallow sometimes.

All you got was paltry 5 comments (at time of my posting).

You see Marina, the first time you were just a novelty, the second time round, nobody gives a hoot.

Just like how the opposition will ride the BERSIH bandwagon and suck it dry for free attention, then drop it like a bad habit, when it does not serve any purpose for their political agenda.

Ironically all the brickbats you are receiving will get you more attention.


The position as the 1st daughter of the PM may have spoilt you but now you are spoilt goods - damaged goods.

Praba Ganesan is Parti Keadilan Rakyat's Social Media Strategist

Dear Mr Praba Ganesan,

Your latest, "10 cute reasons to let Umno go (Happy birthday Umno!)"
goes to show the depth of your Parti Keadilan Rakyat's talent pool, kiddie pool in your case.

1. Your de facto leader must have told you that he was a former MCA member.

Well done and I wish Tan Sri Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir well in his future endeavours.

2. You show your true colours and that of the party you represent. Your party claims to fight for justice as represented by the very name of your party.

Yet, you would put Tun Mahathir under house arrest.

It is just but one example of you and the party you represent being hypocrites.

3. The characteristic disrespectful and treacherous character of your self and that your leaders is plain for all to see.

You have no compunction to tarnish the name of a deceased elder statesman Tun Razak who cannot defend himself but together with the very same person you claim by insinuation betrayed, Tungku Abdul Rahman, gave birth to this nation of ours.

Of course, you may have not been born or wetting your napkins, to know that or maybe because your de facto leader told you he was ex-MCA then, he knew nothing of Memali or Ops Lalang.

4. I apologise if I do not know what the fuck you are talking about by your gibberish and "how it is for Pakatan right now to run Penang, Selangor and Kelantan".

Be that as it may, Kedah must be under Barisan Nasional, I don't know.

5. About Khairy, I wonder why you single him out for "praise".

You could have at least been more gracious, seeing as he personally handed your ex-MCA boss his passport.

6. See, when I say you are disrespectful just like your leaders, how true.

You belittle people, it just so happens they are policemen, not drug addicts. They are just doing their jobs, even though it may be as outriders.

You must now really be hoping Pakatan takes over. If what is alleged is true about "police brutality", you have to watch your back.

7. Of course, consultants not affected are those engaged by the de facto leader of Pakatan Rakyat, Lim Guan Eng.

Go ask LGE how many he really has, not going to be affected.

8. You must be losing your breathe, swimming in that kiddie pool, UMNO meeting the law is indeed rare.

Not like your ex-MCA boss who has already met the law 3 times and counting and not counting appeals, once as a consequence to be guest of the law for six years.

9. About luggage and flying, this also you could ask your de facto leader, LGE.

He knows all about class, no class.

Pakatan Rakyat could also mandate Air Asia to be the official flyer for your Govt, since you are partial to the carrier.

10. Media practioners on your side should have no worries, correct me If I am wrong.

The Malaysian Insider, Malaysiakini, the Rocket and Harakah can fill the void.

No problem with that.

In closing, just some words of advise.

Just make sure you are actually and officially Parti Keadilan Rakyat's Social Media Strategist.

Hint - Step 1. Google "staronline"

Step 2. In staronline search window, key in Ronnie Klassen



Never mind, I will save you the trouble.

You see, for more than a year and a half years or thereabouts, The Star had reported Mr Ronnie Klassen as the Sabah PKR Communications Director.

His blogsite is here.

And in all that time, your party did not dispute or correct any of those reports, of his PKR designation id est.

For some reason or another your President decided it was time to set the record straight and Wan Azizah may be sued for slander.

Some background on Ronnie Klassen, he is not directly related but we call each other cuz (cousin). We were close in our younger days, lost touch for donkey years until I read about him in the Star, and are still close now.

Whenever he was down in KL for official PKR party matters, we always met up whenever we could.

Don't worry Mr Praba, not secrets exchanged, the only thing he talked most of the time was about how busy he was attending to party matters, traversing all over the country, East and West.

Oh yes, he spoke with great fondness for your deputy president, Azmin Ali.

So please check your official designation before writing any more articles in The Malaysian Insider.

Goodbye.

PS

I never did ask Ronnie about the silver colour Merce he was chauffeur driven around when he was in town.

A Premier Surrenders to Mob Rule

"after one cop who’d been separated from the rest was beaten savagely — punched and kicked and whacked with sticks as he lay helpless on the ground — the very next day, while the tear gas hung in the air, he cut a deal."

"It was a capitulation that held within it the promise of further capitulations."

"I shouldn’t say they have nothing to offer. What they have to offer is violence and lawlessness."

"No. It is learned behaviour. They do it because, experience has taught them, it works."

"It confers power. It frightens others into doing what you want."

"This has nothing to do with need, and everything to do with raw power."

"What do we want — a society in which we exchange with each other, voluntarily, and look after each other when we fall; or a society based on taking from each other, with the most ruthless or determined taking the most? Will we make these decisions at the ballot box, or in the street? By persuasion, or force? Within the law, or without it."

PTPTN, BERSIH, Lynas?

Andrew Coyne: In Quebec, a premier surrenders to mob rule

BERSIH 6.5

I always say let them sit, chant, riot all they want.

Since they are pretty determined, to test the patience of those who just want and those who look forward to a peaceful weekend about town, let them.

The police should just go about their mundane duties, get on with their silly routines and leave "civil society" to their own devices.

Whatever, Bersih mulls new strategies for electoral reforms push, whatever.

I will ask however, those NGO personalities, Samanther and Josiah et al, 'representatives from 14 of the NGOs, (who) said today they will continue to “lobby, educate and demand” until free and fair elections are a reality', when you educate your own kids, do you also educate them to demand?

Shame the devil but you need not answer.

I'll offer you and the other 82 "legitimate" NGOs some guidance if you haven't had already.

Here's a Code of Ethics & Conduct for NGOs Compliance Manual to pass the time while you strategise more disturbance.
Such a code can assist stakeholders in identifying and avoiding “pretenders” and irresponsible NGOs - Conduct for NGOs Compliance Manual
Good luck and happy compliance.

Is BERSIH a legally constituted entity?

DAP Democracy and Justice - Hypocrites of the Highest Order

Socialists protect the inalienable right to life and to physical safety, freedom of belief and free expression of opinion, and freedom of association and protection from torture and degradation - DAP, the Party


For expressing his views, he paid a price but humbly says "Yes, it's true, it is just a small sacrifice" and the DAP vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz confirms being dropped as senator.

All of this proves there is no such thing as freedom of anything in the DAP, as it hypocritically trumpets, and punishes their own honoured members who express an honest opinion that the party's action is tantamount to an illegal act.
"Welcome Tunku Aziz into the DAP

Tunku Aziz, Malaysia’s most famous crusader for integrity and transparency, has been appointed a DAP national vice chairman" - Lim Kit Siang
One wonders whether there are other wrong doings kept under wraps in the name of Lim Guan Eng's "collective decision- making".

DAP Poisonous Dart (Continued)

When politicians begin to be bereft of issues they will sing old songs, never mind, but out of tune.

With a son openly calling supporters to break the law in BERSIH 3.0 and Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim at the centre of the riot storm, DAP veteran opposition leader, Kit Siang asks if Najib will accept a Pakatan polls win.

Now how ironic is that?

They came in the thousands.

Closing roads and streets inconveniencing others, dancing to the tune of "free and fair election" demands as though elections are rigged to the point that no other except Barisan Nasional would be the only one to rule the country.

If that were so, how illogical and disingenuous is that?

And yet they came by the thousands.

Duped in an elobrate BERSIH ruse suitably debunked by that very question.

If elections were so rigged, the question would not arise.

I ask Uncle Lim, what actually is the motive of your query?

Here is the translation of Datuk Seri Najib's address, the subject of his query,
Therefore, let me remind you all, let us not be hit by the poisonous darts from the theatricals of the Opposition which can only bring about failure. Stay steadfast to the party. Be loyal to the banners of Barisan Nasional. Even if we are broken or divorced from the life of the body, brothers and sisters, we must defend Putrajaya at all costs!
Source: Malaysia Today

It is obvious to me, what DS Najib has aptly exclaimed is to defend Putrajaya at all costs against poison darts and lies of the opposition in their quest to rule every which way they can.

Lim Kit Siang theatrics.

Did the Barisan Nasional reject the results and was there any violence in handing over of state governments to the Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Penang?

Lim Kit Siang is mischievous.

If there is to be anyone who will not accept a political result, it is proven to be the Pakatan Rakyat themselves.

And guess who would be at the centre "forcing the people of Perak to take to the streets to show their dissatisfaction"?

No points for guessing.

Whenever and wherever that devil is involved it will inevitably comes to this, Angry protesters rally at royal town.

The Perak takeover by the Barisan left a bad taste, especially to another DAP veteran stalwart, Karpal "asks Anwar to step down" Singh -
The Bukit Gelugor MP is blaming Anwar for “creating trouble,” and said that the former deputy prime minister “needed to repent without further betraying the people and their trust.”

He said Pakatan Rakyat needed another leader, a good leader, and lashed out at PKR and DAP leaders who had fallen sway to Anwar’s rhetoric in supporting crossovers of elected representatives.

"I am not getting the support from my own party leaders, neither party adviser Lim Kit Siang nor secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, on the party-hopping issue.

"It seems that they are supporting Anwar instead of me. I am the party chairman, don’t push me too far as I still have the support of the rank and file," he told a press conference at his office near here Sunday
Here is an academician asking the same disingenuous question from the Center for Policy Initiatives, no less.

You know where this person is coming from with deceitful titled piece, Peaceful transition of power: Open letter to all political parties -
With the general election imminent, one key question remains yet unanswered: Will the Barisan Nasional respect the outcome of the polls and ensure a peaceful transition of power?
What's with the "all political parties"?

This academician offered some very "intelligent" reasons to a question apparently from a son of a late Tun Razak's long serving staff (must have accentuation for drama effect) -
"Why did the Prime Minister not respond?

The PM may have felt that he was not able to answer the question for several reasons.

One, he may have lost his wits after being completely taken off guard.

Two, he may not be able to guarantee a peaceful transition of power despite being personally willing to concede should the electoral outcome favour the opposition.

Three, he himself may not be inclined to permit a peaceful transition of power."

The academician made a proper dunce of himself with his fanciful reasons, that would have an illogical ring, with his rhetoric immediately after that -
"Most people are aware that the BN, and earlier, the Alliance parties, have a long, unblemished and unsurpassed record of manipulating the election results through constitutional and other means. This is why they have remained in power for over 50 years."
And what was the question of the late Tun Razak staffer's son?

“Mr Prime Minister, would you make the transition of the government for Pakatan a smooth one if the opposition wins the next general election?”, which is also the subject of the academician going by a deceitful title in his earth shattering opener -
With the general election imminent, one key question remains yet unanswered: Will the Barisan Nasional respect the outcome of the polls and ensure a peaceful transition of power?
Dear Doc, if what you say is true, the Alliance and Barisan Nasional had such prowess to rig the elections so much so no one else can win, your question reeks of malicious intent, to borrow a phrase, because the outcome would then be a foregone conclusion and the question would not arise.

I proffer a common sense reason why my PM did not respond to that chap and your dubious self - NO ONE WOULD DIGNIFY A FACTITIOUS QUESTION WITH ANY RESPONSE.

For example Doc, are you an educated person?

So Doc I will answer your question by answering the similar LKS malicious question, brought about by  foresight in that address to UMNO in particular and BN in general - Poisonous darts like Lim Kit Siang,  your malicious self and ilk, will never see the light of day in Putrajaya, for you will bring about a failure of catastrophic proportions and therefore your malignant questions do not arise and are not worthy of any response.

A Very Big Apology

I wish to extend a profound apology to a big blogger.

I was ready to rock and roll but unfortunately my car was not.

The car was overheating and stalled.

In the wee hours of the morning, there was nothing I could do.

To make it short but not sweet, I could not make the shoot.

From around the blog, I may have let some fellows down but I am sure they had a great time and experience.

None more so than the big guy.

To the big one, please accept my sincere apologies.

Yours truly
Freddie

DAP Poisonous Dart

When politicians begin to be bereft of issues they will sing old songs, never mind, but out of tune.

With a son openly calling supporters to break the law in BERSIH 3.0 and Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim at the centre of the riot storm, DAP veteran opposition leader, Kit Siang asks if Najib will accept a Pakatan polls win.

Now how ironic is that?

They came in the thousands.

Closing roads and streets inconveniencing others, dancing to the tune of "free and fair election" demands as though elections are rigged to the point that no other except Barisan Nasional would be the only one to rule the country.

If that were so, how illogical and disingenuous is that?

And yet they came by the thousands.

Duped in an elobrate BERSIH ruse suitably debunked by that very question.

If elections were so rigged, the question would not arise.

I ask Uncle Lim, what actually is the motive of your query?

Here is the translation of Datuk Seri Najib's address, the subject of his query,
Therefore, let me remind you all, let us not be hit by the poisonous darts from the theatricals of the Opposition which can only bring about failure. Stay steadfast to the party. Be loyal to the banners of Barisan Nasional. Even if we are broken or divorced from the life of the body, brothers and sisters, we must defend Putrajaya at all costs!

It is obvious to me, what DS Najib has aptly exclaimed is to defend Putrajaya at all costs against poison darts and lies of the opposition in their quest to rule every which way they can.

Lim Kit Siang theatrics.

Did the Barisan Nasional reject the results and was there any violence in handing over of state governments to the Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Penang?

Lim Kit Siang is mischievous.

If there is to be anyone who will not accept a political result, it is proven to be the Pakatan Rakyat themselves.

And guess who would be at the centre "forcing the people of Perak to take to the streets to show their dissatisfaction"?

No points for guessing.

Whenever and wherever that devil is involved it will inevitably comes to this, Angry protesters rally at royal town.

The Perak takeover by the Barisan left a bad taste, especially to another DAP veteran stalwart, Karpal "asks Anwar to step down" Singh -
The Bukit Gelugor MP is blaming Anwar for “creating trouble,” and said that the former deputy prime minister “needed to repent without further betraying the people and their trust.”

He said Pakatan Rakyat needed another leader, a good leader, and lashed out at PKR and DAP leaders who had fallen sway to Anwar’s rhetoric in supporting crossovers of elected representatives.

"I am not getting the support from my own party leaders, neither party adviser Lim Kit Siang nor secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, on the party-hopping issue.

"It seems that they are supporting Anwar instead of me. I am the party chairman, don’t push me too far as I still have the support of the rank and file," he told a press conference at his office near here Sunday
Here is an academician asking the same disingenuous question from the Center for Policy Initiatives, no less.

You know where this person is coming from with deceitful titled piece, Peaceful transition of power: Open letter to all political parties -
With the general election imminent, one key question remains yet unanswered: Will the Barisan Nasional respect the outcome of the polls and ensure a peaceful transition of power?
What's with the "all political parties"?
