Crooked Bridge and Vice Presidency iritated the Negara-sawan

UMNO President Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak revealed that the failures of ‘Crooked Bridge’ and then MB Kedah Dato’ Paduka Mukhriz Mahathir to be voted into the UMNO Vice Presidency level as main reasons for of Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to go after his choice Leader replacing Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

He spoke in a closed door meeting with this year’s UMNO General Assembly delegates.

On the ‘Crooked Bridge’ which Dr Mahathir wanted Abdullah to carry on the project as replacement of the Johor Causeway when the former retired. However, Abdullah did not carry on with the project.

By April 2006, Dr. Mahathir started to openly attack Abdullah and accused him as a weak leader. One of the excuse was he was a subservient Prime Minister to the Singaporeans.

On the other point, within a few months after ascending the post of MB Kedah, Mukhriz launched his campaign to slide into the UMNO Vice Presidency race when party elections season was on.

He barely won over incumbent Dato’ Sri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein, who was then Minister of Defence.

Nevermind the fact that Mukhriz at the time was in the freshman-class of Menteri Besars/Ketua Menteris and had not even served UMNO Supreme Council (MT) yet. Only for one term he was UMNO Youth Exco and later was defeated as a candidate of UMNO Youth Chief.

The two is the cause for Dr Mahathir to go after Prime Minister Najib and oust him. Of course the two cannot be the reason important enough for him to amass support to see Prime Minister Najib ousted.

Hence, he used the 1MDB scandal and hyped it up, to steamroll against Prime Minister Najib. It was a concerted effort which saw Dr Mahathir teamed up even with the Jewish Neo Con controlled foreign media.

Of course he threw other issues as good measures to strengthen his case that Prime Minister Najib like BR1M, Sirul Azhar, Rosmah’s daughter’s wedding, Govt debt and failure in economic management and others.

Today, most of these matters have either been resolved or the rakyat at large are not interested anymore but sporadic pockets of dissenters who are stilll hyping it up as the strategy of demonisation, to get the bigger lot to throw Prime Minister Najib out.

Prime Minister Najib also explained on the ‘Crooked Bridge’ issue, he did bring that up and the Government looked into it. After deliberation, even his own Cabinet is not supportive of continuing the project and he respected the ‘collective responsibility’ to no longer support the project.

Prime Minister Najib also explained despite he had until June 2018 to call for the XIV GE, it doesn’t mean it cannot be sooner. What he wants is UMNO to be continuously be ready and serve and look after the non UMNO supporters and voters as well.

On Saturday, it was revealed that Dr Mahathir is obsessed of getting his way, all the time. This round, his obsession driven him to be delusional (like forging a relationship with DAP) and demonstrated his madness to achieve his personal agenda.

UMNO defragmented, Mean Mahathir Miscalculated

Seventh UMNO President Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak opines that UMNO is in a better state today after a year of political drama by dissenters and UMNO Baru founder Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is getting desperate and delusional in his continuous failure and disastrous half-baked-schemes to oust the former.

Umno stronger today as its leaders are on the same page, says Malaysian PM Najib

PUTRAJAYA • Umno is in a stronger position today as its leaders are united and on the same page, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has said, following more than a year of internal party turmoil.

He also said in an interview with The Star newspaper that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, his mentor- turned-fiercest critic, has failed to unseat him as the former premier no longer wielded the “fear factor” he had while in office for 22 years.

When asked if the party is stronger today, Datuk Seri Najib said: “We are all on the same page and we work well as a team. It’s good for Umno that people see we have a cohesive leadership.”
He added: “I believe what happened strengthened Umno’s leadership and we have a much more united leadership.”

The interview at his official residence in Putrajaya was held in the run-up to the annual general assembly of the party he has led for seven years. The five-day assembly starts tomorrow.

When asked if the next general election would be in the first or second half of next year, Mr Najib said: “Not necessarily, it can be later. I am enjoying this speculation. Let people go on speculating.”

The next polls are due by late 2018.

Mr Najib, 63, and the party faced turmoil from the third quarter of last year as he staved off an internal revolt after news broke that about US$700 million (S$999 million) from state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) were found in his bank accounts, leading his then deputy Muhyiddin Yassin to criticise him.

Mr Najib sacked Tan Sri Muhyiddin as deputy prime minister at the end of September last year and replaced the attorney-general and the chief of the Special Branch police intelligence unit.

In February, another Najib critic of the 1MDB scandal, then Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir, was forced to resign by Mr Najib.

Dr Mahathir quit Umno in February and in July formed a new party with his son Mukhriz and Mr Muhyiddin. Meanwhile, another Najib critic, Cabinet minister and Umno vice-president Shafie Apdal, left Umno in July.

Mr Najib said Dr Mahathir has failed to oust him as he no longer has any levers of power. “He ruled by fear. Once he was no longer (Umno) president, there is no more fear of him nor the ability to control and he could not determine things in Umno. There was respect but no fear.”

Mr Najib also shared a conversation he had with the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew in 2009, who likened Dr Mahathir to a heavyweight boxer who keeps punching until he wears his opponent out.

“He is obsessed about doing things his way; it’s his way or the highway. I thought he would go against me, what I did not anticipate was the meanness of his reaction,” Mr Najib said. “I suppose that’s part and parcel of what the man is about. Unless he achieves absolute control, he’s not going to stop. Kuan Yew’s analysis of him was spot on.”

The past year has been “quite a tumultuous journey”, he said. “I’m (optimistic) that there will be an upswing”.

******************

The fact is that, Dr Mahathir threw in too many tactics and tricks, to oust his hand-picked successor to Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the Fifth Prime Minister he waged a war against as well.

Nothing works. Every single tactic ends miserably and Prime Minister Najib is still exactly where he was when Dr. Mahathir first started openly in March 2015.

A year ago, Dr Mahathir intended to use the UMNO General Assembly to strike against its President Prime Minister Najib, particularly using the 1MDB fiasco. However, it failed.

UMNO went through a period of political cycle upon the sacking of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd. Yassin  as Deputy Prime Minister since July last year.

In late January 2016, after the frustration with Attorney General Tan Sri Apandi Mohamed Ali for proclaiming there is no case against Prime Minister Najib, which is after MACC submitted an incomplete set of investigation papers on 31 Dec 2015, Dr Mahathir left UMNO.

However, this round it did not create the same traction as it was in May 2008 in his bid to oust then Prime Minister Abdullah.

In February 2016, Dato’ Seri Mukhriz Tun Mahathir was pressured by majority of UMNO Kedah leaders to resign. That came as another slap on Dr. Mahathir’s face.

His Majesty the King wouldn’t accommodate Tun Dr. Mahathir at arms with the Opposition, particularly his nemesis for 49 years Lim Kit Siang and DAP

On 4 March 2016, he launched ‘Deklarasi Rakyat’ which saw him teaming up with an arch nemesis for 50 years, Emperorissimo of Chauvinist Chinese DAP Lim Kit Siang and some key party leaders DAP.

That very much depleted any shred of Malay support left for the Fourth UMNO President, who headed the Malay nationalist party for 22 years.

Dr. Mahathir very much lost his clout over UMNO since when he was the Supreme Leader, he was feared more than respected. His key success story for 22 years was about his dictatorial, divide and rule and Machiavellian leadership traits.

Malaysian PM Najib says Mahathir no longer wields the fear factor

PUBLISHED NOV 27, 2016, 2:39 PM SGT

PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – Former Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohamad’s failure to unseat the Prime Minister is partly due to the fact that he no longer wields the “fear factor”, Prime Minister Najib Razak has said.

Datuk Seri Najib, who made the remarks during a wide-ranging exclusive interview with The Star published on Sunday (Nov 27), said the elderly leader’s control of the United Malays National Organisation (Umno) was largely by virtue of being the then party president and Prime Minister.

“He ruled by fear. Once he was no longer president, there is no more fear of him nor the ability to control and he could not determine things in Umno. There was respect but no fear,” Mr Najib said.

He said Tun Dr Mahathir operated through the mentris besar (MBs) and chief ministers to control the divisions.

“Once the MBs were no longer there, he had no contact with the division heads. You’d be surprised he didn’t know the names of many of them,” he said.
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak arrives for an interview with The Star newspaper in the library of his official residence.

Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak attends a Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Nov 9, 2016.

On the other hand, Mr Najib said, he is seen as one of them because he came up with them over some 30 to 40 years.

“I don’t just rely on the MBs, I am part of them and that is why Mahathir cannot dislodge me from Umno. I was short of my 23rd birthday when I entered politics. It gave me a huge advantage because I grew up with over two generations of leaders in Umno,” he said.

Mr Najib’s comments in The Star came ahead of Umno’s annual general assembly in Kuala Lumpur this week.

In the interview, Mr Najib also shared a conversation he had with the late Lee Kuan Yew in 2009 who likened Dr Mahathir to a heavyweight boxer who keeps punching until he wears you out.”He is obsessed about doing things his way, it’s his way or the highway. I thought he would go against me, what I did not anticipate was the meanness of his reaction,” he said.

“I suppose that’s part and parcel of what the man is about. Unless he achieves absolute control, he’s not going to stop. Kuan Yew’s analysis of him was spot on,” he added.

Mr Najib said it was the “epitome of Machiavellian politics” and the “height of hypocrisy” that Dr Mahathir is now sharing the stage with his former opposition rival Lim Kit Siang and shaking hands with his one-time political foe Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

“Do you think its for the love of Kit Siang, do you think Kit Siang loves Mahathir?”

Mr Najib also said he did not believe that the “strange bedfellows” will last for long.

***************

Evidence about UMNO being fragmented and hugely affected upon the second resignation of Dr Mahathir and sacking of Muhyiddin, Mukhriz and former Wanita Information Chief Hamidah Osman did not cause the traction as the dissenters expected.

Majority of UMNO members even in Muhyiddin’s and Mukhriz’s own Divisions were nonchalant.

The fact is that Pribumi Bersatu, a party mainly based of former UMNO members who are used to a structured system cannot even form one single Division level yet. This is considering the founders are a Statesman, recently sacked Deputy President and State Liaisons Chief aka Menteri Besar.

By comparison, when Anwar Ibrahim decided to form his ‘KeAdilan’ even when he was behind bars, the application of membership was over whelming,

The success of speed of the formation of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, did not do much in drawing the memberships. Their sad devotion of willing to sell the Malay struggle out by working with DAP and hypocrisy of working with PKR and PAN, isn’t attracting the larger of the Malays except those who are burnt with the success of Dr Mahathir’s demonisation of Prime Minister Najib.

Hence, majority of UMNO members is still sticking with UMNO. Now that the contentious issue of 1MDB and no one is really interested, the Malaysians are eye balling issues that really affecting them.

Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak was recently interviewed by senior The Star journos and his explanation and perspective of current issues including the so-called ‘back-breaking’ political attacks by his former Boss, is very interesting.

He articulated very well about the progression of relationship with China.

PM: Dr M no longer wields the fear factor

PETALING JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s failure to unseat the Prime Minister is partly due to the fact that he no longer wields the “fear factor”.

Shameless Sewer Statesman

Former founder of UMNO Baru and recent dissent party Pribumi Bersatu is a shameless Statesman when the larger part of DAP is still demonstrating their animosity and distrust on and about him, despite he has been trying to ride on the Opposition with the most seat in Dewan Rakyat in his personal sinister political agenda.

FMT story:

Dr Mahathir not invited to DAP national conference

Tarrence Tan | November 25, 2016
Anthony Loke explains this is because, traditionally, only component parties of Pakatan Harapan are invited to attend.
anthony-loke-mahathir

KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) chairman Dr Mahathir Mohamad will not be invited to the DAP national conference next week, says party national organising secretary Anthony Loke Siew Fook.
Speaking to reporters during a press conference at DAP’s headquarters, Loke said this was because PPBM was not an official component of the opposition coalition, Pakatan Harapan (PH), yet.
“PPBM has not yet formed an official alliance with Harapan. It is tradition that we only invite component parties of our coalition to the national conference.”
The DAP national conference is set to take place at the IDEAL Convention Centre in Shah Alam on Dec 4.

Loke said leaders from component parties would be invited, including PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and deputy-president Mohamed Azmin Ali, and Amanah president Mohamad Sabu and deputy-president Salahuddin Ayub.
“We have invited our party veterans and have extended the invitation to the top leadership of the two component parties in PH, which are PKR and Amanah,” he said.
Loke said only two DAP leaders would address the conference – national acting chairman Tan Kok Wai and secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.
“There will be no speeches by other party leaders. Only two DAP leaders will speak in this conference, and there will also be debates by our delegates.”
Loke said 2,732 delegates from all parts of the country were expected to attend the conference, which would also mark the DAP’s 50th anniversary.
“The party is set to adopt a ‘DAP at 50’ declaration, where it will renew the foundation of the party’s struggles for the next 50 years.”

*************

The fact is that besides a few strategic and national leaders, most of DAP refused to accept the arch-enemy of the Chinese Chauvinist party, for a very prickly history of 50 years of political fight.

Let alone for majority of them trust him.

The Fourth Prime Minister is desperately running out of ideas and options to oust Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak, an obsession the former openly shelled intensely against the latter since March 2015.

The machiavellian politician tried everything he could. He manipulated, lied, conveniently changed his stories and allegations, worked with foreign Neo Con Jewish funded and controlled media and even invited foreign power intervention, to topple and oust Prime Minister Najib.

First he manipulated then Deputy Prime Minister and several strategic regulators and law enforcement chiefs to pressure Prime Minister Najib to bow out.

When it failed miserably, the Fifth UMNO President tried to rouse UMNO grassroots, to get his sinister agenda through MT and General Assembly but that flunked too.

He was unable to convince some BN MPs to rebel against Prime Minister Najib and get Parliament to vote him out because of no confidence.

Dr Mahathir eventually joined forces with the Opposition, Pakatan Harapan in the twin by-election of Sg. Besar and Kuala Kangsar was counting that his involvement, would tip the votes for the Opposition. How wrong was he as BN obtained a better majority even against combined votes of PAN and PAS.

In early March he openly announced working with Chinese Chauvinist Emperorissimo Lim Kit Siang and other key Opposition leaders, to launch the ‘Deklarasi Rakyat’.

Dr Mahathir shamelessly claimed their movement “Obtained 1.4 million petition signatures” for this and he even tried to sell this lemon to His Majesty Seri Paduka Yang DiPertuan Agong XIV, when they met on 16 September 2016.

The fact is that Dr. Mahathir is trying to ride on DAP’s strength, which is the mainstay of Pakatan Harapan with 37 MPs in Dewan Rakyat and clout over Parti Amanah Rakyat.

His centrestage together with sacked UMNO Deputy President Muhyiddin “I am Malay first!” Mohd. Yassin marred BERSIH 5 as the turnout was only a fraction of the they organised last year.

Dr. Mahathir shamelessly pretend the Opposition leaders, followers and sympathisers ‘conveniently’ look away all the perils he did when he was in power for over 22 years.

These are landmark events like the use of ISA, clamp down against media and expression, sacking and jailing of his Deputy, sacking of Lord President and five judges and several fiascos.

Communications and Multimedia Minister Dato’ Seri Dr Said Salleh Keruak is spot on about Dr Mahathir’s obsession made him delusional.

Semua kawan gila!

Presiden UMNO Baru Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad menolak setiap orang perseorangan yang gagal atau memilih untuk tidak bersama beliau lagi dalam kegilaan politik peribadi untuk menjatuhkan Perdana Menteri Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak, termasuk kerjasama dengan Chauvinis Cina DAP dan mengundang campurtangan casing.

Laporan Malaysiakini:

Dr Mahathir: Saya malu Ibrahim Ali kawan saya

Geraldine Tong 22 Nov 2016, 6:28 petang 22 Nov 2016, 6:33 petang
Bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad berkata, beliau malu menyebut bahawa Presiden PERKASA, Datuk Ibrahim Ali adalah kawannya.

“Saya malu, dia kawan saya tapi tak mahu masuk BERSATU pasal kita kawan dengan DAP,” kata Dr Mahathir pada satu sidang media di Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana di Putrajaya hari ini.

Menurut Dr Mahathir, Ibrahim mendakwa bahawa DAP adalah “jahat”, tetapi jika dibandingkan DAP dengan MCA, siapa sebenarnya lebih jahat.

Katanya, DAP secara terbuka mengisytiharkan bahawa mereka menghormati perlembagaan, kedudukan Raja-Raja Melayu, Islam sebagai agama rasmi negara dan sebagainya.

Adakah MCA atau MIC pernah melakukan perkara yang sama, soalnya.

Beliau turut mengulas keputusan Ibrahim untuk meletakkan 50 calon bebas mewakili kumpulan pendesak Melayu itu pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.

Ini, katanya, bermakna bahawa Ibrahim bekerja untuk Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“Dia bekerja untuk Datuk Seri Najib. Sebab dia tau kalau lebih daripada pertandingan satu lawan satu, Najib akan menang. Jadi dia berusaha supaya Najib menang

“Dia pura-pura berjuang untuk orang Melayu, tak boleh cakap dengan DAP. Tapi dia sanggup bekerja dengan Najib, dia sanggup sokong orang yang curi duit,” kata Mahathir.

Beliau juga menafikan bahawa pernah menjadi penaung PERKASA.

Ibrahim pada Ahad lalu mengumumkan PERKASA merancang untuk meletakkan 50 calon pada pilihan raya umum akan datang, termasuk dirinya.

Katanya, mereka tidak akan menggunakan platform parti politik sebaliknya hanya bergerak sebagai NGO kerana mahu bertindak di luar radar politik tempatan.

Sementara itu, Ibrahim ketika dihubungi oleh Malaysiakini tidak mahu mengulas dan sebaliknya berkata, beliau akan mengadakan sidang akhbar esok.

****************

Dr Mahathir bersahaja menuduh setiap individu yang tidak lagi bersama beliau sebagai samada sudah bekerjasama dengan Perdana Menteri Najib atau ‘dibeli’.

Hakikatnya, sebagai mantan Presiden UMNO Dr. Mahathir bukan sahaja tergamak bekerjasama dengan elemen anti Melayu dan Islam Chauvinis Cina DAP semenjak Mac 2016 lagi, beliau mempertahankan DAP.

Laporan Utusan:

Tun Mahathir tetap pertahan DAP

SOFIAN BAHAROM | 22 November 2016 8:37 PM

PUTRAJAYA 22 Nov. – Bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad terus mempertahankan sekutu baharunya, DAP dan PAN apabila menyatakan kedua-dua parti itu bersetuju mematuhi peruntukan Perlembagaan termasuk berhubung hak-hak istimewa orang Melayu
Menurutnya, perkara itu termasuk menerima kedudukan Raja-Raja Melayu, Islam sebagai agama rasmi negara, kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu dan bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa kebangsaan.
Bercakap kepada pemberita di pejabatnya di Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana, di sini, Pengerusi Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) itu berkata, DAP bersama PAN dan PKR telah menyatakan pendirian masing-masing untuk mematuhi peruntukan Perlembagaan tersebut.
“Saya tidak pernah dengar MCA atau MIC membuat kenyataan seperti itu tetapi DAP ada buat sebegitu,” katanya dalam sidang akhbar bagi mendesak pembebasan Pengerusi Bersih, Maria Chin Abdullah yang kini ditahan di bawah Akta Kesalahan Keselamatan (Langkah-langkah Khas) 2012 (SOSMA).
Beliau mengulas desakan Presiden Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa), Datuk Ibrahim Ali sebelum ini agar PPBM menyatakan dengan jelas hala tuju parti itu terutamanya dalam perjuangan agenda bumiputera.
Ibrahim berkata, kesanggupan Dr. Mahathir untuk bekerjasama dengan DAP dan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim nyata menimbulkan 1,001 tanda tanya.
Mengulas pengumuman Perkasa bahawa pertubuhan bukan kerajaan itu akan meletakkan 50 calon bagi bertanding dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang, Dr. Mahathir berkata, pengumuman itu tidak lebih daripada hanya untuk menarik perhatian dan meraih publisiti.
Jelasnya, sebagai kawan lama, beliau sudah biasa dengan sikap Ibrahim yang suka kepada publisiti murahan dan melakukan sesuatu untuk kepentingan diri.
Tambahnya, tindakan Ibrahim tersebut dilihat bertujuan memecahkan undi orang Melayu dan mewujudkan pertandingan banyak penjuru yang akhirnya akan memenangkan Barisan Nasional (BN).
“Dahulu masa di universiti, dia adalah musuh saya, selepas itu jadi baik kononnya apa saya buat dia akan sokong tetapi lepas lihat ada kepentingan diri, lain pula jadinya,” katanya.
Dr. Mahathir bagaimanapun memberi peluang agar Ibrahim untuk mengubah pendirian daripada hasrat untuk bertanding pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.
“Mengenai kedudukan sebagai Penaung Perkasa, bila saya dilantik jadi penaung pun saya tidak tahu tetapi saya diisytihar menjadi penaung,” katanya. – UTUSAN ONLINE

***************

Adalah naif bagi Dr Mahathir untuk cuba mempertahankan DAP dengan mencanangkan kepalsuan golongan minoriti Chauvinis Cina ini akan akur dan menerima peruntukan Perlembagaan termasuk Hak Istimewa Orang Melayu.

Selama lapan tahun pasca PRU12 ini, dengan sedikit kuasa yang ada pada Chauvinis Cina DAP di Pulau Pinang dan Selangor, telah memaparkan bagaimana kepentingan orang Melayu termasuk hak istimewa telah sedikit sebanyak dinafikan.

Kepincangan percubaan Dr Mahathir ini seolah-olah beliau cuba menafikan realiti. Akar umbi DAP rata-rata sebenarnya sedar kepalsuan bahawa kerjasama dengan DAP boleh berlaku dan ianya untuk kebaikan rakyat Malaysia dan negara.

Dr Mahathir seolah-olah menafikan realiti mengenai sifat Chauvinis Cina dan  kebiadapan pemimpin dan ahli DAP, walaupun Raja Raja Melayu sendiri pernah menitahkan desakan dan permintaan golongan minoriti terutama Chauvinis Cina ini adalah ‘keterlaluan’.

PAS yang satu masa dahulu bersama DAP dalam Pakatan Rakyat kini telah meninggalkannya.

Dalam ucapan beliau pada 2013, Dr Mahathir berpendapat walaupun DAP “Akan bertimbang rasa, berlaku keadilan, tidak terlalu rasis, pada hakikatnya bila mereka berkuasa maka ini berlaku akan terjadi”. Beliau juga menggunakan contoh PAS sanggup untuk menjadi boneka DAP sleeps PRU12.

“Kalau orang Melayu mash lagi tidak sedar dan utamakan perasaan benci”, merupakan pesanan yang cellar dari mulut Dr. Mahathir sendiri.

Dr. Mahathir sendiri pernah menggelar Lim Kit Siang “Kit Siang adalah seorang rasis! Belum lagi jadi Kerajaan, dah tunjuk sikap bongkak!” sehinggakan disaman oleh mendiang Karpal Singh.

Untuk Dr. Mahathir berdalih, berbohong dan mengkhianat seorang pejuang perjuangan kepentingan Melayu yang setia kepada beliau sepanjang lapan setengah tahun ini dan sebaliknya mempertahankan Chauvinis Cina DAP, abdallah bukti kegilaan memuncak.

Ini sekaligus meletakan Dr Mahathir sebagai musuh yang lebih dasyat untuk menafikan kuasa orang Melayu sebagai majoriti.

Maha-Hipokrit dan Minion Anti Melayu barunya

Pengasas dan Panglima parti UMNO Baru sebagai wadah politik orang Melayu bernaung untuk menggalas perjuangan memartabatkan orang Melayu tatkala elemen anti Melayu memuncak ditengah perpecahan Melayu pada 1988, kini jelas menjadi Cif Barua gerakan anti Melayu yang dipelupuri Cina DAP.

Dr. Mahathir menjadi ikon ditengah tengah gelombang Cina yang anti UMNO/BN

Dr. Mahathir menjadi ikon ditengah tengah gelombang Cina yang anti UMNO/BN

Tun Dr Mahathir kini mengambil alih ikon anti Melayu yang sebelum ini oleh DAP seperti Lim Kit Siang, mengepalai demonstrasi menumbangkan Kerajaan yang rata-rata lebih 90% peserta oleh Cina bersifat anti UMNO dan anti BN.

Hakikatnya, masyarakat Cina rata-rata urban ini telah bersungguh-sungguh berusaha untuk menumbangkan Kerajaan UMNO/BN semenjak pasca PRU12 lagi dan ini merupakan demonstrasi kelima semenjak Nov 2007, untuk memalu sentimens anti UMNO-BN.

Untuk pusingan ini, tanya paling gagal kerana jawatankuasa penajanya telah bergerak secara sistematik lebih dua bulan seluruh Malaysia untuk menggembar-gemburkan isu, agar ianya berjaya menarik perhatian rakyat.

Polis mengganggarkan kehadiran BERSIH 5 ini tidak sampai 16,000 pendemonstrasi dan ketirisan penyertaan dikalaangan orang Melayu amat jelas agenda menumbangkan Kerajaan BN ialah didalangi DAP dan PKR.

PAN merupakan rakankongsi Pakatan Harapan paling tidak berfungsi kerana sekatakat ini gagal membawa sebarang hasil terutama sokongan kepada pakatan menggantikan Pakatan Rakyat setelah PAS berundur.

Dr Mahathir dipertonjolkan sebagai ikon BERSIH pusingan ini, pemnggambil peranan pemimpin DAP seperti Lim Kit Siang dan PKR seperti Wan Azizah, merupakan hipokrit paling menjelekkan dalam sejarah politik Malaysia.

Ucapan Dr Mahathir di BERSIH 5 dipenuhi fitnah, pembohongan, sifat hipokrit dan tidak terlepas dari bahan-bahan yang dimanipulasi terutama keadaan sebenar ekonomi negara. Ini adalah semata-mata untuk membakar kemarahan rakyat terhadap Kerajaan, terutama Perdana Menteri Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak.

Hakikatnya, hipokrasi tiada tempat disudut masyarakat Makaysia yang semakin matang.

Coward Columnist

Sinar Harian cowardly removed crooked columnist Abdul Jalil Ali titled “Menteri kata OK, Rakyat kata KO” pertaining to the targetted subsidy of cooking oil.

Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Dato’ Sri Hamzah Zainuddin announced more than two weeks ago, the subsidy for cooking oil is only available for quantities of 1kg packaging. The rationale is the subsidy is provided for household instead of enterprises.

The Ministry is aware necessary steps are being taken to ensure more than 45,000 tonnes of the cooking oil in 1kg packaging is being distributed through the usual retail channels nationwide for household consumption.

It should be more than adequate for domestic demand nationwide though probably the distribution of that many cooking oil in ready to use packaging could have teething glitches.

Being a veteran writer, Jalil chose to play up the sentiments of the distribution of the cooking oil in the said 1kg packaging has caused the consumers lots of problem.

The fact is that, Jalil did not substantiate his story with data. It is mere hearsay, which he based on market talk.

It is irresponsible for a newspaper to even print the story in the first place. It could be interpreted as  a precursor of instigating the public.

That is most likely why it was removed quite later in the same day from the Sinar Harian website.

Why as a veteran writer Jalil takes a prickly position to worsen public perception on the system’s tendency to hoard subsidised goods at the expense of consumer is not certain. Nor how his newspaper benefits from this.

However extending ghost stories is very much trait of the uneducated kampung folks. The more riddiculous they can stir the matter up, is the mark of success as the kampung taiko.

Hubris in Desperation

In his utter desperation of ousting Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak primarily via demonisation of the latter, Tun Dr. Mahathir resorted to lame lies to instigate the public.

It is very irresponsible to proclaim the Malaysian Government is in financial trouble and such utterance is Dr Mahathir’s poor attempt to hoodwink the simpletons.

It is to lie with the objective of erosion of confidence, by local and global business communities.

The fact is that Malaysian Government financial health is rated at A- by leading global ratings houses.

Malaysian economy is very active and productive. The healthy current account demonstrates the production and export is much higher than imports.

The exports have been recorded as 227th consecutive months of surplus over imports.

The RM1.7trillion market capitalisation of the Malaysian stock market is evidence of regional and global confidence of the nation being ‘Business as Usual’ and going concern.

If taken in comparison, the Malaysian Government is in far worse position of debt when Dr Mahathir was in charge thirty years ago.

Debt ratio against GDP was 104% (compared to 53% today) and out of that amount of debt, 64% was in foreign currency. It means servicing the debt in the future include the risk of higher exchange rate.

Then the foreign reserve stood only at USD8bil compare to over USD97bil today. Even if the production side of the Malaysian economy is completely crippled, the foreign reserve would able to sustain eight and half months of imports.

It is interesting to note that Dr Mahathir only proclaimed “PM Najib led the country into so much debt that it is insolvent”.

The fact is that, the Fourth Prime Minister simply threw a reckless lie for that. He did not even try to offer evidence to support his claim. Even if he did, he would not be able to.

The Federal Government is solvent. Every month on the dot, all 1.6mil civil servants get their pay. So does the pensioners.

Year on year, Federal Government never by operational failure unable to release the RM70odd bil in emoluments, to so many Malaysians whose livelihood dependent on the government system.

The Federal Government as the single largest paymaster provided a sound eco-system for a huge stream of local entrepreneurs to development and expand the business. Many businesses thrived for generations because of the reliability of the Federal Government to spur domestic economy with consistent and reliable expenditure.

A good example is KFC restaurant. The sound domestic economy provided the conducive market for the franchisor to open over 500 restaurants all over Malaysia.

Systematically, had the Federal Government is insolvent and unable to service the emoluments of 1.6mil civil servants and the 8-9mil other Malaysians as part of the direct eco-system, then JCorp would not able to maintain all 500 restaurants operating.

It is morally wrong for the Statesman to use his position to try and manipulate the rakyat confidence, especially for a personal vendetta to demonise Prime Minister Najib in the strategy of toppling the latter.

The Maha-Keling job of all time

The biggest hypocrisy is to turn against an action which changed the nation and  position of 3 September 1998, then Prime Minister and UMNO President rallied the nation behind him in the support of ouster of his own deputy Anwar Ibrahim, who he determined to be sexually deviant.

Tun Dr Mahathir wearing ‘Free Anwar’ badge

Yesterday, at Pakatan Harapan convention, he appeared wearing ‘Free Anwar’ badge.

Anwar Ibrahim has exhaustively undergone the complete process of the judiciary for the Federal Court to uphold the conviction to incarcerate him for sodomising his political aide Mohd. Saiful Bukhary Azlan in June 2008.

Even the pardons board rejected the request for a Royal Pardon.

Anwar cannot in anyway over turn the conviction and for Tun Dr. Mahathir to support the call to ‘Free Anwar’, not only is highly irresponsible but also a blatant disregard and insult the Malaysian rule of law.
