MINGLE SERIOUSNESS WITH PORTIONS OF LIGHTHEARTEDNESS

October 7, 2009

The dye has been cast by UMNO for the election of the Assemblyman of Bagan Pinang. This constituency has been a Barisan National stronghold. Mohd Isa is the Barisan candidate. The question is, did UMNO’s choose Isa by conveniently ignoring impulsiveness and irrationality? Or does UMNO think even though Isa was a fallen man in the past for money politics, for which he was suspended from office, he has paid the price for his misdeeds and it is simply impossible for the votes to reject him. Or could it be more than what that meets the eye in respect of UMNO’s candidate, that is, if we nominate, Isa can stand, if Isa can stand, the election commission will accept him and if Isa can enter into the election, he will win.

What UMNO fails to realize is the fact that even with the full support and publicity being given to Mohd Isa by the main stream print and broadcast media, the media is acting on instructions. The people will start to wonder as to why the main stream print media is so passive whilst the alternate media is abound with all forms of news and information about Isa’s past misdeeds.

This censorship on the main stream press from raising the issue of Mohd Isa’s suspension or his past misdeeds in respect of money politics is illusory and self defeating. By curbing the freedom of the press the Barisan National is in actual fact contributing to the success of the Pakatan Rakyat candidate, Zulkefly Omar being elected into office.

The Barisan National by channeling all their energy in making the issue of Isa’s suspension for money politics a no go area of the print media, fails to be of the realization that there are many other serious allegations that have surfaced.

There are serious allegations on the issue of rigging postal votes. News is abound  in the alternate media that in the previous elections the Barisan National had instructed and entrusted certain individuals to mark the postal ballots. There is also an  ex-military personnel known as Retired Sergeant Abu Kassim who has on his own volition exposed such dubious acts.

The other devious act of UMNO is making its rounds on the alternate media, is the use of one Tan Sri and Two Datuks who are ethnic Chinese to invest their money to make certain that Isa wins the by-election. Najib and Mahymuddin and all in UMNO know this issue. This is what they call “pay-back time.” These Chinese Towkays as they are more often referred to, are the ones who benefited or are Isa’s proxies, when Isa was the Chief Minister of Negri Simbilan.

It is apparent that these Chinese Towkays are going to go on their rounds to coffee houses and hotels in Port Dickson and wherever it is possible in Bagan Pinang to hand over the money to those who are willing to sell their soul to vote for Isa. It is a normal phenomenon, that rats desert a sinking ship. But in Bagan Pinang it appears that there will be rats swimming to the sinking ship of UMNO. The question is, are these three Chinese Towkays suckers to do the dirty work for UMNO? Or are these three Chinese Towkays merely “PROXIES” of Mohd Isa? Or is there a bigger picture that we do not know about?

The voters of Bagan Pinang should use these last four days and never fail to raise in their enquiry wherever Isa speaks,  the issue of virtue. They should also extend their enquiry to know what Isa had produced for them in the past when he was the Chief Minister from 1984 to 2004. Isa has and will never have a virtuous behaviour. Isa may even tell the votes with tongue in cheek and his fingers crossed that if they vote for him, he will not do what he did when he was caught for money politics.

This is what you can term as to “mingle seriousness with portions of lightheartedness.” This is where the voters knowledge of causality should not in any way cancel his belief in the freedom of choice of a virtuous and respectable leader.

The voters should always remember that they cannot take the chance of giving chocolates laced with alcohol to a former dipsomaniac. And Isa who has been drunk with power and money politics is more akin to a leopard that will not change its spots.

The voters of Bagan Pinang should take the money offered to them, after all it was stolen from the state, which indirectly should have been used to improve their welfare, and should go to the polls and vote for, Zulkefly Omar of PAS.

INCAPABLE UMNO CANDIDATE AND UNFULFILLED DEEDS

October 7, 2009

Another By-election is in the offering in Bagan Pinang of Negri Sembilan. The demography of the constituency comprises approximately of Malays 66%, Chinese 10.5%, Indians 19.9% and others of 3.5%.

The contest is between Mohd Isa Samad of UMNO representing the Barisan National and  Zulkefly Omar of PAS representing the Pakatan Rakyat.

What seems to be of an affront to all right thinking people is that UMNO has nominated a candidate, in the name of Mohd Isa Samad who was found guilty by the UMNO disciplinary board of money politics. This translates to mean “CORRUPTION”. Samad was banned from holding office. But the insult to our intelligence is that Najib being the Prime Minister of this nation has demonstrated how mediocre or medieval is his capability, and has announced that Isa’s culpability was a “technical matter”.

How does the misdeeds of Isa become a technical matter is beyond the comprehension of all right thinking people .We can go one step further and state that even the voting populace of Bagan Pinang who have the knowledge of causality will never be able to accept Najib’s announcement and will cancel their support for Mohd Isa Samad.

The announcement of Najib will not vindicate Isa’s culpability of being found guilty of corruption by UMNO and neither can Najib claim that he was misquoted by the press. This expression coming from the Prime Minister of Malaysia only goes to demonstrate the illusory idea of the 1Malaysia Concept which can only be expected from a tinted personality like the likes of Najib.

Najib has to be reminded that emotional corruption translates into intellectual corruption. That is why Mahathir has openly stated that Najib is not a leader but an administrator. We the people realize that Najib apart from being emotionally and intellectually corrupted, he is always led by his passion and therefore has a defective knowledge of the world. This assessment of Najib is not an exaggeration as Najib has stated in Paris at the 35th. Unesco General Conference that the “1Malaysia national philosophy can be extended to the concept of 1Region and ultimately 1World”.The world leaders must have had a good and resounding laugh in the toilet.

As we can see it, Najib lives a solitary life. He has a lot of baggage to off load. Hence being the leader of UMNO and the Barisan National he is unable to live according to common decisions as MCA and the MIC are moribund. As a consequence of his solitary life he obeys himself alone, which accounts for the disorder in UMNO. Hence Najib’s politics survives in the midst of ignorance, and if that is not the case why did he make the 1 Region and 1 World announcement in Paris like a megalomaniac.

Since 08 of March 2008 the people have come to realize that the true aim of the government is to be the liberty of the people, who put them in power. We are no longer to be used as the passive instrument of the power that may be. Neither does the people’s knowledge of causality cancel their belief in the freedom of choice of their candidate. The votes are now able to conduct their lives by making an informed decision by the rule of reason.

If the people of Bagan Pinang want to achieve fulfillment of their common desires in accordance with the true nature of democracy, then they must conclusively decide that money politics is corruption and corruption is cheating and cheating is an offence under Section 415 and 417 of the Penal Code (Act 574) and under the Criminal Procedure Code (Act 593) it is a non compoundable but bailable offence and if found guilty, the sentence is Imprisonment for five years or fine or both.

Therefore, the hocus-pocus of money politics being a technical matter can only come from an emotionally and intellectually corrupted person like the likes of Najib.

Corruption is cheating to get elected into office, pure and simple. It is an offence under the Penal Code. It is apparent that UMNO has only incapable candidates and if the people do ever vote for these rouges and scoundrels, all the promised deeds will definitely not be fulfilled and will come to naught.

We think that Barisan National and UMNO can no longer take the silent majority for a ride, like they had done for the previous 52 years. The votes now have an intuition. This natural asset gives them an immediate insight into the truth that comes from the grasp of the word “CORRUPTION”. Hence, if  all things being equal, Zulkefly Omar should be the votes choice and should be elected into office as the State Assembly of Bagan Pinang. This would be the proof of the people by their single act of mental attention of the surrounding and prevailing circumstances of Isa, for the voters to reject incapable politicians.

LOYAL CIVIL SERVANTS AT WHAT PRICE

September 15, 2009

There was an interview held by Malaysiakini recently with the Chief Secretary to the Government. The substance of interview was that  “ the civil servants have to be loyal” to the Government.

Sidek Hasan emphasized that the civil servants have to be “loyal” to the Government of the day as the Government is elected by the people and the Government serves the people.

The question posed to Sedik was in respect of the role played by Abdul Rahman  Hashim the Perak State Secretary early this year in the rape of the Perak State Assembly by Najib and the problems encountered by the Elected Pakatan State Government.

What was indeed astonishing and beyond comprehension of all right thinking people, was the statement by Sedik that the Perak State Secretary Abdul Rahman “was following the rules as a civil servant. I would have done perhaps the same thing. As a civil servant you have to do what you think is right under the circumstances and reading the rules”.

What rules is this man talking about. He must be one of those highly qualified mediocre professionals who coasted his way through the undergraduate years in a Malaysian University and must have passed his examinations with the barest of permissible margins.

And thereafter we presume, he must have been sent, at the tax payer’s expense to some foreign university to obtain some form of useless post graduate degree. That is why he could so comfortably state without any hesitation that, “I would have done perhaps the same thing.”

That is why Ahmad Sarji in his biography as written by Lim Chang Moh, entitled “Attaining Eminence” states that universities should not be just giving out scrolls. “What is the point of having highly qualified professionals if they don’t have character.”

So the answer to Sedik statement stares at us right in our face. He is a man without character. He has to be loyal to the man, Najib, who had illegally usurped power and carried out the rape of the Perak State Assembly.

This man who has no character, has also stated that Abdul Rahman Hashim  comes from the PTD, ‘Perkhidmatan Tadbir dan Diplomatik’, but it has to be agreed to by the state government, so the service may be federal, but his government is the state government.

To another question posed by Malaysiakini, that is,

So he has to abide by the state’s decision?

“Exactly, but I suppose his was a special case seeing that you know, at that time, there was a judgement call. And according to that call, because we don’t know which one to choose… he was following the rules as a civil servant.” Does this answer make any sense to any right thinking person. So how are these mediocre civil servants ever going to serve the interest of the people, by not serve the Elected Government, when there is a “JUDGMENT CALL” they do not know which one to choose. But they fail to realize that the Elected Government is the Government.

Does this mean, that in the event some underground organization were to aspire to take over the Government, and there is a “JUDGMENT CALL” these civil servants without character would choose to give their allegiance to the underground organization!

If that is the case, would the civil servant as in Abdul Rahman Hashim’s case have committed an act of TREASON?

Is this act of Abdul Rahman Hashim as conformed by Sedik not a TRAVESTY to the established rules of governance for the proper functioning of an Elected Government?

It is clearly apparent that the leadership of the civil service has lost its purpose, as according to Sedik they do not know the meaning of service to a “GOVERNMENT” and we can safely presume that they will sell their service to the highest bidder.

We have learned over the years that any position of power vested in the hands of an individual is to be considered an honour and a privilege. The holder of the position whether in the private or public sector, is generally expected to noble and is entrusted with very important duties and responsibilities. This is particularly so in the civil service, because their acts and conduct ultimately affects the lives the people who voted the Government into office.

Now we can see that  the civil service is packed with people of no CHARACTER. This is not a presumption. It is a fact and it has been unequivocally stated and confirmed by none other that the CHIEF SECRETARY of the Federal Government. It is apparent that the current leaders in the civil service do not examine their own consciousness on the route they take in executing the trust emplaced on them.

Here it would be most appropriate to draw a close to this article on loyal civil service by taking a Quote from one of RUMI’s poem,

“If thou wilt be observant and vigilant, thou wilt see at every moment the response to thy action. Be observant if thou wouldst have a pure heart, for something is born to thee in consequence of every action.”  Unquote.

As such it is now clear to us that from the acts and actions of Abdul Rahman Hashim the State Secretary of Perak, failure to carry out his duties according to his oath of office given to the elected State Government he has committed an act of treason. He has grossly violated the honour and the privilege entrusted in him and he should be removed from office which includes Sedik Hasan and all others like them.

ABNORMALLY WEAK INTELLECT

September 15, 2009

Hishammuddin, is the Minister of Home Affairs of Malaysia. Before he went into politics he was a practicing Advocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya.

He established the Law Firm which operates in the name and style of Lee & Hishammuddin. He was a Partner in that firm before he entered politics and became what he is today.

That means he is supposed to be a learned man.

What has happened to his INTELLECT?

This is the question the common man in the street, is searching for answers. Has he consigned his native intelligence and his English education, to the dustbin of UMNO politics and policies of RACIALISM? Has UMNO politics resulted in him having over the period of time that he rose through the ranks in UMNO, chosen that UMNO was more important to him in realizing his aims, that he had to  have  a gross disregard for the Rule of Law?

Come, come Hashammuddin, please use your God given NATIVE intelligence, even if you have decided to disregard your acquired intelligence and if by some chance you have lost it on your way up in UMNO, at least you can still use your commonsense like all of us do.

But for heavens gracious sake do not demonstrate to the world that you are being intellectually arrogant and dishonest in attempting to explain your way out of the embarrassing situation you have put yourself in, because of your over enthusiastic urge to be a racist and attempting to unseat the Selangor State Government.

Just admit it and so let it be. We are all too familiar with your past misdeeds of waiving and kissing the kris at every UMNO General Assembly. There cannot be a plea of innocence in respect to your acts and conduct, which has been at an expensive cost and a great loss of the peoples support, for UMNO.

No one will stop a politician, from playing to the gallery. That is what all of them do, anyway. You are all actors on a stage, to fish for the peoples votes. But do it with, civility and not with a medieval mentality. It does not and has not impressed anyone.

Now, with the cow-head demonstration, and you having had announced to the world at large, that the barbarians, were victims, your statement has been taken by all right thinking people to be a mere imbecility of saying rubbish, without any substance. Whilst the public understand from where you were coming, as you are a downright racist, you were in actual fact attempting to imply that the Selangor State Government, does not know how to administer the affairs of the state.

Then, after the public outcry against your statement, which was an imbecility of rubbish, you made and became a flip flop man, and announced, that the Government will not tolerate anyone disrespect for the religion, of other peoples faith..

Do not ask for further cheap publicity. We all know and even your members with intellect know that your press statement after the closed door meeting with the barbarians at Putra Jaya, was a mere imbecility of rubbish.

The commentator from the general public responded conscientiously but with, civility. We want your RESIGNATION. But you have made it clear, that you will not resign. But you have to take stock that we know that you are a person of an abnormally weak intellect and that you have been living in a state of delusion and have been unable to comprehend the demarcation and the complicated political dynamics at play, in our nation of people of diversity.

WISDOM OR BLIND FAITH

September 13, 2009

The main stream print media reports that the Malaysian Indian Congress(MIC) Delegates have given the President’s men a clean sweep. It is apparent that Samy Vellu has proved his influence in ensuring that the nominated men for the top four posts got elected.

As such, the word is out that ALL of us who are observers should respect the WISDOM of the MIC delegates, who are the grass root leaders of MIC.

What ” wisdom” are we talking about. The MIC is a political party.

By the acts and conduct of the members of a component party of the BN, which party is almost “moribund” it only demonstrates that the members of the MIC are oblivious to the change that has taken place in the political landscape. They are as blind as church mice.

They do not seem to follow the change in the political landscape with reason and wisdom BUT by blind faith follow a leader who has destroyed the social fabric of the ethnic Indian community.

Thus the ethnic Indians, now have 8 political parties to represent about a little over 1 million ethnic Indians. How fragmented and disunited are the ethnic Indians in the eyes of all right thinking political observers.

Over and above having 8 political parties, the ethnic Indians are also known to be members of the Parti Keadilan Rakyat, the Democratic Action Party and the Gerakan party which is a component party, which comes under the umbrella of the Barisan National.

Is this what we can ever term as “WISDOM”?  If anyone thinks so, they ought to have their head examined first. To loosely use such a word as “wisdom” to give respect to the influence exercised by Samy Vellu over the delegates to attain his objectives, seem to butcher the word, wisdom and make the word lose its essence, in our way of expressing prevailing outcomes or important situations.

So the commentator’s way of using the word, WISDOM is an abuse of the English language or maybe, based on the lack of understanding of the language.

Therefore, the choice, is not to give any recognition to the MIC members choice of electing their leaders, which is based on their ignorance of the current prevailing political dynamics at play.

The MIC delegates decision is not a decision of the ethnic Indian community. It is to be considered and confined,  as a decision of an insignificant portion of the ethnic Indian community, and any respect given to the delegates, should to confined to only the MIC as a component of the Barisan National and not the ethnic Indians as a whole.

As such, if there is any wish by  the MIC to claim to be the representative body of the ethnic Indians of Malaysia, it would be an affront to all right thinking ethnic Indians in particular and all other political observers in general.

A DOG IS A DOG

September 12, 2009

There is a lesson which the Malaysian Political Leaders have to learn and that is not to take CULTURE and TRADITION for granted, and to do things according to their desire.

Here is a lesson to be learned. When somebody runs away from his COUNTRY of origin to escape being punished for his past misdeeds and thinks after a hundred years or so, that all is well and sundry and that all his misdeeds have been covered up and forgotten and starts to live in a illusion that “MALAYSIA IS TRULY ASIA” the past catches up with him.

You cannot call a dog by any other NAME as the dog is still a dog.

The same goes to the Javanese word MALAYU. It denotes RUNAWAY.

Therefore, a runaway from Jawa or Indonesia cannot erase his past and glorify his present SUPERFICIAL and artificial STANDING in the eyes of all righting thinking people in ASIA.

So this recent problem that has arisen between Indonesia and Malaysia, clearly shows that a runaway cannot get rid of his past and that he has no CULTURE, which he has forfeited, because he has abandoned it, when he ran away from his country of origin. He can APE the culture, but he has no rightful claim on it.

As an example, as the Courts always pronounce, if you infringe upon COPYRIGHT LAWS you have to pay a price. This is the intent of Parliament and the Courts enforce it.

The same goes with the CULTURE of a NATION OF PEOPLE. They have a right to that CULTURE. No one can COPY it. And this is what Indonesia claims Malaysia has done.

But now Malaysia states that the Government did not do it but it was a Company that it engaged that did it. What a LAME EXCUSE. Stand up like a man and take CHARGE of your RESPONSIBILITIES and do not run away from it. This time you cannot sweep it under the carpet.

Like wise this is the price the MALAYU has to pay. So wake up you IDIOTS and stop making a nuisance of your self.

Stop calling the ethnic Chinese and Indians immigrants because we did not runaway like you and we still retain out CULTURE.

OF FOXES AND LIONS

September 11, 2009

When we look around us under the prevailing political scenario, we cannot help but to become quite nostalgic. It is not that the past had great fortunes placed on our feet. After all we are all mortal. But the thought of our nation goes back to the days when our founding fathers had gained Independence from our colonial masters and how they had envisioned, to develop this young nation which was in the “back waters,” so to speak.

By that, it would mean that there had been very little development planned and executed, by our colonial masters. Nevertheless, they had established proper Institutions to maintain law and order and a civil society. Beyond that, they had concentrated most of their efforts in extracting all our resources, to enrich, their motherland.

Those who were born at the period and were referred to as the “baby boomers” are the ones who would understand the vision, our founding fathers had for this nation. From being primarily an agricultural exporting nation, the Government had opened up Industrial Estates in Petaling Jaya the first satellite township. Then by the late sixties and early seventies more Industrial Estates started to sprout up all over the country, within zones, classified as “free trade zones.” Well beggars can be no choosers, but at least an effort was being made on that front, of employment creation.

At that time, even though the nation was young, we shared the experience of knowing the reason or the causes of certain things or events that occurred. To a certain degree our founding fathers were genuine in their approach of managing and administrating the affairs of the state. We as the general populace had a bond of friendship. There was no such talk about race, religion, culture, creed or what ever man can think off.

We had a political leadership which was multi racial, and it was the same in almost all the Governmental Institutions, Local Authorities and all other Bodies. But not like what it is today. Only ethnic Malays are intelligent and all else are stupid.

Then, “diabolically” the May 13 civil strife was planned, charted and effectually and efficiently executed by the late Razak,( who happens to be Najib’s father) Harun, Mahathir and Ghazali Shafie. The nation was ruled by the National Operations Council, under a state of emergency. Why was it so?

The late Razak wanted to ensure the rise and the entrenchment of a new ethnic Malay capitalist class. Razak sowed the seeds of the New Economic Policy. But then about 5 years later he passed away. Sorry for that chap he did not live long enough to see his dreams come true. So, the reigns of power went into a reluctant man, that was the late Hussein Onn. This man from what we know of him, was of integrity. But then, he had a real thorn on his side, and that is the nations greatest extremist and fanatic, who is none other that a pseudo malayu, namely Mahathir. It has now been revealed, that this chap, when he went to Singapore to read for Medicine, he registered into Med school as an “INDIAN.” That is why he is called a PESUDO MALAYU.

Apart from being a pseudo malayu he was also a fox. At the time when the late Hussein Onn was the Prime Minister, this chap was the Minister of International Trade and Industry. This chap, engineered a scheme of how to frustrate Hussein’s policies. This led to Hussein deciding to retire and the pseudo malayu, took over the reigns of the Government.

So here comes the sad part, that makes us nostalgic, of the past. Our medium of education was in English. This pseudo malayu, dismantled it, to lay his foundation to be more  malayu than all the other malayus where it has been made known, that it is a disrespected term in Javanese, which connotes to people who ran away from Java to escape punishment for crimes they had committed. That may sound reasonable, based on the instinct to survive. But how about this pseudo malayu, who is an Indian from India.

This is what we call, the vertical heights of “fiction” at play by Mahathir. As the late John F. Kennedy once remarked, “ The great enemy of the truth is more often not the lie but the myth.” So this Mahathir chap is a myth and that is where all our troubles started and has reached its “crescendo” in March 8 of 2008, where the LIONS woke up, that is, the people have made a start to say, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Mahathir never followed any laws. He never followed a true process of thought. He was down right a dictator. You had to be with him or you were out. That was his modus operandi and he never had any modus vivendi. Look at what he did to Pah Lah, even though the chap slept most of the time, not being aware of what was going on in Government.

Now, during this pseudo malayu’s 22 years in office as the Prime Minister, he actually raped the nation’s resources. He brought in Diam, who was his close friend, and was not successful in his law practice or in his business activities. There was and must have been a purpose or a hidden agenda, for bringing in an outsider who was never elected into office and awarding Diam the Finance Minister’s Portfolio.

By bringing in a failed legal practitioner and a failed businessman and awarding him such an important portfolio, it only goes to show that Mahathir wanted an incompetent block to helm that portfolio so that he could use him to his advantage. But on the contrary, this chap made the best use of the open opportunity  which was before him, and amassed a fortune which is beyond spectre or mental illusions.

There is an email which inter alia states the character of Diam:

“Most members of Umno’s new generation are aware that Daim is an
acquisitive millionaire and a macho man with a taste of young women, but
they concede him these weaknesses because they see in him a clean and
competent Economic Adviser to the Government. But the generation of Harun
Idris, Musa Hitam and Manan Othman to name just a few of the old hands –
they are the ones to ask in order to discover who the real Daim is. “

”It was Datuk Harun who plucked Daim up from the depths of failure in the salt
business. Daim’s wife, Mahani and Harun’s wife, Salmah were good friends and an
influential pair in the early 1970s. It was wife power that moved Harun to give Daim 160 acres of prime Kampung Pandan land. And thus Syarikat Maluri was born.”

”There is no use speculating over how much Daim paid Harun. After
all, the two were fast friends. For the gory details, just ask Low Kiok Bow
or Thamby Chik. They can relate how Daim cheated a land broker and greased
Selangor state executive councillor and Mahathir’s brother-in-law, Ahmad
Razali for that piece of land.”

It appears that Diam has made no mistake, in the eyes of UMNO members. So who cleaned up his ACTS?

We have to conclude that a failed law practitioner and businessman cannot overnight become a brilliant Finance Minister. Here we are really dealing not with coincidence but a scheme which was well hatched and engineered and was executed with good and sound planning and with dexterity and brilliance.

So herein may be the answer to our spectre or mental illusion. We take another quote from an email, which states:

“Daim succeeded in making millionaires of such cronies of Wan Azmi, Halim Saad,
Tajuddin Ramli, Samsuddin Hassan, Razali Rahman and Tan Sri Basir, but Musa
in the end was cast off as a poor ex-DPM. Musa once complained to Mahathir
that Daim had stolen a number of supporters’ project proposals, but again
Mahathir ignored him. These were the first acts in the eventual breakup of
the Mahathir-Musa partnership. As the interests of Mahathir and Razaleigh
bloated, Musa got squeezed out.”

So how much is Daim worth. According to the email Daim has boasted that he is worth about RM 65 Million, and we Qoute:

“If those physical projects were not enough, Daim also took every opportunity to take wealth from the share market as well. Every time the Treasury approved a company for listing on the stock exchange, Daim cronies received
their lien’s shares. That was how in Southern Bank, Resort World, Sports Toto, Berjaya, Tanjong and scores of other blue chip firms landed with Daim and Company. Once, when share values were high, Daim boasted among friends that his visible wealth alone totalled RM65 billion. To shut the mouth of Barisan Nasional leaders, Daim gave lucrative projects to Samy Vellu and Ling Liong Sik so that their children could be big-shot in batches.”

”Daim managed to fool Umno members into believing that Mahathir would not let him go although he had asked to be relieved of his Cabinet post on a number of occasions. With Musa and Razaleigh out of the picture, Daim could grab as much wealth as he wanted without even Mahathir stopping him. Besides, he was Umno’s treasurer and he could make it look as if the companies he controlled were those in which the party had stake.”

“Daim’s avarice damaged not only his own image as finance minister, but also Mahathir’s and Malaysia ‘s reputation with the international community. It is said that he used to demand exorbitant fees for himself in negotiating contracts involving foreign suppliers. The chairmen of Japan ‘s two biggest banks – the Bank of Tokyo and Sanwa Bank – once complained to Mahathir that his Finance Minister demanded commissions that were too high when negotiating yen loans. Margaret Thatcher, too, has complained about Daim’s role as a commissioned agent. He had – or still has – accounts in Zurich , London , Hong Kong, Tokyo , Singapore , Caymen Island , Channel Island and Virgin Island.”

As far as we know from news reports in the print media, Daim resigned. But that is not true. Mahathir had used him and had enough of him. Mahathir asked Daim to leave. And we Quote from the email:

“When he was to told to resign as Finance Minister, Daim asked Mahathir to appoint Anwar Ibrahim to the job. Obviously, he thought this would help to ensure that his skeletons would remain closeted.”

“He warned Mahathir of the peril that Rafidah would be to both of them: the secrets they shared would be uncovered. Daim also persuaded Mahathir to appoint Mustapha Mohammad as Anwar’s deputy because these two could be depended on to fill up the holes he had left gaping. Anwar is nobody’s fool, but he sacrificed his idealism to protect his towkay.”

Well, at least we are now able to see through the Mahathir’s cobweb and why he decided to act the way he did with ANWAR in 1998. There were too many holes to be filled. In the mean time the Asian Financial Crisis had hit our shores. Mahathir was in a state of delirium. He had to act fast. Anwar was in favour of taking the IMF loan. But Mahathir would not have it, as all the holes had not been covered, by then, hence the sacking of Anwar.

Now we can say that the pseudo malayu has Institutionalized Corruption in this nation. He is cynical to pretend that others are corrupted, when he is not able to first look at himself into the mirror and to see the answer that would stare him, in his face.

This is a critical time for the Pakatan Rakyat to put its own house in order. Day after day we are being exposed to new facts in relation to how our trust in the Government had been hijacked because of some charlatan leaders, avarice. Since March 8 2008 we as a people are being exposed to the reality of Government being not only accountable, but is, transparent and is competent. Therefore, our knowledge of our Government will henceforth be contextually dependent based on a series of conflicting positions as we see the unfurling of certain political events.

It is apparent from the above facts that Mahathir and Daim must have been the foxes who recognized traps and endeavoured to cover them, up. But we the votes have now realized that we are actually the LIONS and we can by our votes frighten off any cunning political wolves.

THIRTY YEARS OF SAMY VELLU

September 9, 2009


It is a great wonder to observe the ongoing political scenario in Malaysia. But then if one looks into the political drama that is acted out by the President of the Malaysian Indian Congress(MIC), it can be both, fascinating on the one hand and disgusting on the other to observe the “fascism” of Samy Vellu’s reign of rule in this racial based component party of the Barisan National.

This man gives the impression that without him, the ethnic Indians would have no place in Malaysia. As such, he is indispensable.He fails to realise that in the thirty or more years that he held the helm of the party, he has done virtually nothing constructive to elevate the Indians from their poverty traps. The social standing of the ethnic Indians leaves much to be desired, and is at an all time low.

Now, when Samy Vellu is being criticized by his own party members, he behaves like a master strategist and endeavous to play to the gallery that he is a fearless politician and bellows out hot air which serves no purpose, by making claims that he will never bow to any form of pressure. He makes it appear that even if Najib tells him that he has become a liability to the United Malay National Organisation(UMNO), he will not step down as the President of the MIC.

What he fails to realise is the fact that his party has become moribund. Just like the Malaysian Chinese Association(MCA). The political landscape has been remodeled. The voting populace is now more in favour of a multiracial and multicultural party. The people have had enough with racial politics.

Under these prevailing political scenario Samy Vellu looks more like a Bollyhood comedian in the eyes of all right thinking people within his party in particular and the nation in general.

Here it may be appropriate to view Samy Vellu’s current standing and have a peep into the play of William Shakespeare “As you like it”. There is a part in Scene VI which may depict Samy.

Duke S. Thou seest we are not all alone unhappy;
This wide and universal theater
Presents more woeful pageants than the scene
Wherein we play in.

Jaques. All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.

So we as observes can clearly see with a sober mind, that Samy has played his part. Now all forms of allegations are being hurled against him both from within his own party and from the outside.

His challengers have time and again been truncated. He has returned time and again as the President. At the March 2008 general election, he lost the Parliamentary Seat of Sungai Siput.

Whilst Samy may be of the belief that nobody can tell him what to do, he has to be sober in his observations of where the standing of his party is in relation to the current prevailing political dynamics at play.

It is apparent and clear that thirty or more years at the helm of a party and in politics is long enough. Samy has nothing new to contribute towards change in any form. He has virtually become redundant in the current political matrix. He should gracefully hand over the reigns of power to his Deputy and retire, before he is forced out of office.

CAUSE FOR CHANGE

September 9, 2009


Najib pretends that his 1Malaysia concept will build the invisible bridge and bring about harmony in our multi cultural society.

Hishammuudin believes that the COW HEAD demonstrators have been innocent and have been victimized because a Hindu Temple was going to be built in a muslim majority area.

The Inspector General of the Police has demonstrated that barbarians from a muslim majority area can carry out a demonstration without a police permit.

The Attorney General has demonstrated that the Law is not made for a reason but for victimized malayu’s to demonstrate with passion.

Now after the public outcry 6 barbarians have been charged in court.

Najib and his Government are filled up with nothing else but CHARLATANS.

Their acts and conduct when taken together with the acts and conduct of the cow head barbarians are in fact the sum total of the things UMNO pretends to be.

Now we as the common people can clearly see That UMNO no longer wants to be careful of what it has all along “PRETENDED” TO BE.

We as the common people should never forget the power of our idea for a change of the Federal Government.

UMNO is in a state of DELUSION.

We should not fail in our duty to execute our ideation for the CHANGE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

Remember persistence and determination in our cause for a change will only result in an evolution.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WITHOUT AUTHORSHIP

September 6, 2009

The Authorship of any Government has to be premised on the type of policies that are formulated which is generally acceptable to civil society. In particular, it has to ensure that the fundamental liberties of the people who voted and put the Government in office are not eroded.

Under these circumstances, the management of, and the formulation of policies and the implementation of such policies and the  affairs of any Government, cannot and does not appeal to divine inspiration. Nor can such policies be enforced selectively, especially in  diverse society, like the likes of Malaysians. That is the reason the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has an Advertisement for the world, as “Malaysia is truly Asia.”

The Leaders of the Government are expected to be clever and astute politicians. They have to tailor their policies which are for the wider good and acceptable, by the society at large. Such policies should be implemented, without discrimination and on the basis of equality, fairness and justice.

Looking back of what has happened since 1970 when the New Economic Policy(NEP) was first introduced, and over what actually happened, the whole NEP policy sounds like a CARICATURE. Leave aside, what the ethnic Chinese, Indians or the other races and Foreign Investors think about the NEP, but even the ethnic Malays( Malayu which means  runaway in Jawa) have come to be of the realization that the NEP has been a “ludicrously exaggerated representation” of the Government, which has only benefited  the ethnic Malays who are closely connected to the Leaders of the Government.

To put it simply, the Government has miserably failed, knowingly or unknowingly to look over their shoulders and to ensue, that at the implementation stage of the NEP, the right things were done. They failed, to argue upon all fronts. They failed and continue to fail to argue on the economic situation, the education system that provides the substance and the skill for the employment market, the various infrastructure projects that have been planned  and built and on how it is to be maintained and upgraded, the public transportation system, the health and sanitary conditions, the current administrative practices versus new theories that may have to be introduced to enhance and improve upon the delivery system for the general well being of the people who pay the taxes to keep the Government machinery functioning, the duties and responsibilities of the Local Authorities and how are they being executed and the current prevailing economic situation and its significance in relation to the non economic enrichment that has resulted from previous Governments policies and a host of other factors, that have a direct impact on the daily lives of the people in general.

The Government has absolutely disregarded meritocracy. It has substituted it with, MEDIOCTITY resulting in a majority of the ethnic Chinese, Indians and those classified as others, not wanting to join the Civil Service. Hence, the Civil Service comprises of 90% or more of ethnic Malays. No doubt this will include the Government Linked Corporations.

Then we have the public sentiment, against three main Institutions. Whilst the Royal Malaysian Police Force(RMPF) and the Malaysian Anti Corruption Agency(MACC) would come directly under the Executive Arm of the Government, the Judiciary is required under our Federal Constitution to be Independent of the Executive. This is owing to the fact that there are to be a separation of powers for any democratic society to be a functioning democracy, that is, there would be a Parliament, the Government which is the Executive and the Judiciary which is Independent and that is why the term “JUSTICE IS BLIND” emanates. But in Malaysia Justice is Not Blind.

From the above discussion of the Authorship of Najib’s Government, it is clear to all right thinking people, that Najib’s Government is like a Ship without, a ballast, by which we mean that Najib is not very clever nor is he an astute politician. If anyone, thinks to the contrary, then the Question that begs to be answered is: why introduce a 1Malaysia Concept( which is still born) when the Federal Constitution provides for Liberty, Equality, Freedom of speech, assembly and association, Freedom of religion and the Rights in respect of Education without Discrimination.

To put the argument in its right perspective, let point out a few short comings in his leadership, as portrayed by the main stream print and broad media and the alternate media.

Before being appointed as the Prime Minister, Najib carried out an unforgivable act against the people of Perak, that is the Rape of the Perak State Assembly, resulting from which the people of Perak are left in the lurch and without a proper State Government. Now, Najib wants to take back the State of Selangor. This had resulted in the mysterious and untimely death of the late Teoh Beng Hock.

On 28.08.2009 the whole world with astonishment and bewilderment watched the video of what transpired after Friday prayers at Shah Alam, when some 50 or more barbarians who behaved more akin to lunatics,  acted out with the severed head of a cow which is considered sacred by Hindu’s and aggressively shouted out profanity, which were seditious in nature and further pronounced and declared, that they will start a civil war. Till to date of writing not a single barbarian has been arrested by the police. The irony is that the Home Affairs Minister Hishammuudin indeed found fit to have a closed door meeting with these barbarians, and thereafter issued a press statement, that he understood that these barbarians were “victimized” even though they were the aggressors.

Whilst the cow head barbarians are roaming free,  a group of ethnic Indians lead by P. Uthaya Kumar on the evening of 05.09.2009 carried out a candlelight vigil in Kuala Lumpur in protest against the controversial cow head demonstration held at Shah Alam. From the video on you tube the world can see how efficient were the INDISCIPLINED police force in arresting these peaceful people who carried out the vigil.

The question in our mind is, how is that, that the police were hyper efficient in arresting a group carrying out a candlelight peaceful vigil and on the contrary  the police became by standers and watched the lunatics with the severed head of a cow carrying out a violent demonstrating in front of the Selangor State Secretariat Building, and almost 10 days have gone by and no one has been arrested. This inaction by the authorities, is incomprehensible to all right thinking people.

So, Najib, we the people have to be bold and frank to notify you that you are not clever nor astute as a Leader of your Government. Contrary, to what your spin Doctors advice you, we can see that there is no authorship in the administration of the Government. All that we can see, is that, you are hungry for power and are in a state of dereliction of your obligation as the Prime Minister of this Nation and are incorrigible and now want to carry out the Rape of the State of the Selangor State Assembly, and you may not succeed.

As such, we will leave you with a poem of a British poet, painter and mystic, and we Quote:

“When I from black and he from white cloud free,

And round the tent of Godlike lambs we joy,

I’ll shade him from the heat till he can bear

To lean in joy upon our father’s knee;

And then I’ll stand and stroke his silver hair,

And be like him, and he will then love me.”

From the above poem, you will note that you have no love for the community. Neither do we love or respect you. You have a hunger to destroy the soul of the community. Love is human emotion and it has no meaning to you. Plato called it DIVINE MADNESS. But on the contrary what we see and visualize from your 1Malaysia Concept, is,  DIABOLISM.
