Chicken, running away

Emperorissimo of DAP Chinese Chauvinism proven that he isn’t what quarter-of-a-man that he ought to be and instead a demonstration of being a major cowardice when he backtracked on his challenge to former UMNO President Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak for an open debate.

Kit Siang calls off debate with Najib after advice


  • Thursday, 23 May 2019

PETALING JAYA: DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang has called off the much-anticipated debate with former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak over fears that it may turn into a racial conflict.

“As there is a great likelihood that the debate on ‘How Malaysia became a global kleptocracy and how we can become a leading nation of integrity’ between Najib and myself could be turned into a Malay vs Chinese conflict… I have decided not to proceed with the debate with Najib,” he said in his blog post on Thursday (May 23). 

Lim noted that the debate between them should be “the battle against corruption, abuses of power and criminal conduct like money laundering”, which is not a racial or religious issue, but an issue of good values and good governance.

The Iskandar Puteri MP said in the past 48 hours, he had received advice from many Malaysians, even those overseas, urging him not to debate with Najib.

Some of the advice include that Najib has nothing to lose, the people cannot see any benefit from the debate and that it can cause more harm than good.

Lim acknowledged that his decision will be greeted “with tempests of allegations that (he is) a coward”. 

“My 53 years of politics is an open book for Malaysians to judge whether I am a coward or not, and I am always prepared to subject myself to the judgment of Malaysians. 

“However, there is one thing I will not compromise – the higher interests of the nation and Malaysians,” he added.


Former Prime Minister Najib got a whiff that the ruling Pakatan Harapan leaders felt that Emperorissimo Lim would likely lose the open debate, especially against facts presented.

Najib: I received info Harapan fears Kit Siang will be defeated

May 23rd, 2019 (Updated May 23rd, 2019)

Minutes after Lim Kit Siang issued a media statement announcing his withdrawal from a debate with Najib Abdul Razak, the latter said he received information that Pakatan Harapan was planning to pull the plug on the event.

In a Facebook posting this evening, the former premier said there were concerns within Harapan and DAP that Lim could be defeated.

“I notice that there are steps put in motion to cancel the debate. They are worried Lim might be vanquished in the debate,” he added.

Lim had cited concerns that the debate could be used to stir up racial sentiments and denied that his decision was due to cowardice.

Meanwhile, Najib claimed there were also those in Harapan who are concerned that he would raise issues which Lim (photo) would find difficult to deflect, as well as expose the coalition’s propaganda as lies and slander.

“Harapan should have full trust and confidence in Lim because he has been DAP’s boss for more than 50 years.

“Harapan should know that nobody would be forced to watch the debate and that public funds would not be used for the event.

“In the spirit of democracy and transparency, let this debate proceed with the title suggested by DAP, which I had agreed to,” he added.

The debate was first mooted by Najib in a recent media interview due to Lim constantly attacking him in the latter’s media statements over the 1MDB scandal.

Following this, the DAP veteran, who accepted the dare, suggested that the debate be on “How Malaysia became a global kleptocracy.”

Najib subsequently agreed to the title, but said that in fairness, other topics must also be included.


It was Emperorissimo Lim who proposes that Former Prime Minister Najib ought to debate him on the topic of ‘Kleptocracy’.

Kit Siang proposes debate on kleptocracy, says ball in Najib’s court

 (Updated )

DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang today proposed kleptocracy as a topic after former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak challenged him to a debate.

“Najib accuses me of being obsessed with him. He cannot be more wrong. I would not be interested in him one bit if he did not have the dubious distinction of being the single Malaysian who had wrought the greatest damage to Malaysia, both to the present and future generations, with his kleptocratic legacy. 

“In the circumstances, should one debate with a kleptocrat, a pathological or habitual liar?

“Probably the best subject for debate is ‘How Malaysia became a global kleptocracy and how we can become a leading nation of integrity’. The ball is in Najib’s court,” he said in a statement.

Najib, in an interview, said he had responded to Lim every time he issued a statement and that it would be better if they just had a “freestyle debate.”

However, Lim said Najib’s interview was not “spared of lies.”

“Is Najib a pathological or habitual liar? …He said he answered me every time I made a statement, which is a downright lie.” 

Lim said there were several issues which Najib had not addressed despite being raised repeatedly.

Among these is the revelation by former MACC review panel member Lim Chee Wee, who said that Najib was not investigated for corruption as he had sacked the attorney-general.

Lim also pointed to claims by businessperson Deepak Jaikishan that Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor was the de facto prime minister.

The DAP leader added that Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s observation that Najib had continued to act innocent despite the serious charges against him had gone unanswered.

Najib is facing 42 charges for corruption, money-laundering and abuse of power over the 1MDB scandal. He has denied any wrongdoing.


The fact is that the open debate, which Former Prime Minister Najib counter challenge of Emperorissimo Lim’s agreement for a debate would be proven disastrous for the ruling PH if not probably uncover the various sinister agenda of undermining the interests of the country, especially the Malays, who are the majority of Malaysians.

The deterioration of the performance manifested in management of the economy, the open opposition amongst Members of Government in likes the ruling party leaders, Hannah Yeoh Vs Khalid Samad, Azmin Vs Lim Guan Eng, Maszlee Malik Vs DAP and the Doyen of Crony Capitalism and Chairman of ‘Majlis Orang-Orang Tua’ Daim Zainuddin Vs Lim Guan Eng eroded more of their popularity if not confidence.

Underperforming Minister of Youth and Sports who is also PPBM Youth Chief Syed Saddiq insists that his Cabinet colleagues shouldn’t attack the Education Minister Maszlee, especially on bias against the Malays on the Matriculation and Chinese controlled commerce issues.

Gerontocracy Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is obviously very displeased with the performance of the ruling party leaders in the Government, without sparing his own Cabinet members.

The fact that his Media Adviser Dato A Kadir Jasin did his bidding by sounding out underperforming Ministers and Deputy Ministers should quit, is a clear sign.

Step down, Kadir tells non-performing ministers, mentris besar and excos

  • Wednesday, 22 May 2019

KLANG: Ministers, mentris besar, chief ministers and state executive councillors who do not meet the mark after a year in charge should relinquish their posts, says Datuk A. Kadir Jasin.

Writing in his blog The Scribe, the Prime Minister’s special media adviser did not mince his words, saying that those who were incapable of handling the job entrusted upon them should ship out.

“If there are those who are still crawling and feeling around a year after being given the opportunity and responsibility, then it is our responsibility to ask them to reconsider their positions, and if needed, to voluntarily leave so that others can replace them,” said Kadir.

He said a year was long enough to learn the ropes on how to do their jobs in order to meet the people’s aspirations.


“He (Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad) certainly is more aware as he himself has given his cabinet a mark of only 50%,” said Kadir.

When asked in an interview recently how he would rate his Cabinet, Dr Mahathir said he gave it “five out of 10”.

“I am very conservative. I have been in the government for 22 years and I know how government functions, but these people (ministers) are new – they do not know how,” Dr Mahathir had added.

Meanwhile, Kadir wrote that from his understanding, the mark that Dr Mahathir gave was based on average grading.

“There are those below 50 (points) and those above 50. Those below 50 can be targeted to be replaced,” he said.

According to Kadir, people, especially those who voted Pakatan Harapan, had the right to assess who in their opinion had succeeded or failed to meet their aspirations.

He said those holding key positions in the civil service, statutory bodies and government-linked companies must also ship out if they under-performed or were still loyal to the previous Barisan Nasional government.

He added that some of those appointed by the Barisan government were still in their positions and still loyal to their previous bosses or continued to adhere to the old ways of doing things.

“They are directly and indirectly sabotaging the Pakatan government in order to keep their positions,” said Kadir.

He said this was because they knew it was the only way to protect and keep their “previous involvements” secret.

“In principle, the public service must be neutral and loyal to the government of the day,” said Kadir.

The veteran journalist added the time had come for the Public Services Department and the Public Services Commission to remove the “virus” loyal to the previous administration in order for the executive and administrative branches of the government to collectively serve the people and the nation.



In the deterioration of the expectation from the public on PH’s failure to deliver the past solid year, which include to imprison Former Prime Minister Najib and growing demands for for former convict PKR President Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim, Gerontocracy Prime Minister Dr Mahathir is believed to heighten the game for him to remain in power.

He former Prime Minister who came back as the seventh Prime Minister back paddled on his vow not to accept UMNO-BN crossovers at the time when PH won the 14GE, by accepting 14 UMNO MPs.

Within six months of power, his party grew from the weakest in the ruling coalition to now having 27MPs.

It is said that PPBM operatives are engineering another 8 MPs, to bring up PPBM’s position of 35 MPs.

It is political necessity for him to remain as the seventh Prime Minister a little longer than the much talked about “Two years term”, which stretches at most just another 12 months.

Now that Emperorissimo Lim yellow-bellied himself from a very precarious lost on an open debate with Former Prime Minister Najib, which could probably deteriorate the much needed Malay support for the already deficient confidence for PH to remain in power come-what-may the next GE, be it quite within short or the full term, Gerontocracy Prime Minister Dr Mahathir’s ability to hang on to power is slightly extended.

The Wentworth ought by now, be known Central Chicken Coup.

Unless any of the Chickadees willing to sound out against this cowardice Supremo.

Buck! Buck! Buck!

‘D’ is for Demand

The Gerontocracy Prime Minister is facing a tighter spot upon the recent first anniversary of his ‘Marriage-of-(in)convenience-between-backstabbing-strange-bedfellows’ ruling Government, which saw an across the board below average performance.

Needless to say the gradually the economic contraction and continuous revision of smaller economic growth and the much coveted Bursa Malaysia KLCI psychological indicator dipped 300points within then 52 weeks of Gerontocracy Prime Minister’s administration.

The market is getting very edgy.

Race relations is at the lowest ebb, ever. So is the relationship between the Federal Government and the Royals.

The failure on the issues such as ICERD, resignation of His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong XV and the summary replacement with Sultan Abdullah of Pahang, probably didn’t make it better.

Gerontocracy Prime Minister’s leadership and administration is seriously facing the challenges of ‘Murphy’s Law’.

Even the Doyen of Capital Cronyism and Chairman of the ‘Majlis Orang-Orang Tua’ Daim Zainuddin is not shy of sounding out Gerontocracy Prime Minister’s administration.

Daim to gov’t: Start trusting civil service or you’ll be ‘dead’

 (Updated )

Despite the prime minister claiming that some civil servants are out to undermine Pakatan Harapan, one of his closest advisers has called on the government to trust them if it wished to ensure political longevity.

In an interview with the South China Morning Post, Daim Zainuddin went so far as to state that the government would be “dead” if it did not begin working with the country’s more than 1.6 million civil servants.

“Now you are in government. When you are in government, you have to deliver. You cannot deliver by yourself. The civil servants are the implementers, not you.

“You plan policies, then you say (to the civil servants), take over. 

(When) you don’t trust them, they just sit down,” he was quoted as saying in the interview published today.

The former chairperson of the Council of Eminent Persons claimed that many civil servants have expressed their unhappiness over the extent of political appointments in ministries.

While not dismissing Putrajaya’s claims of sabotage, including by Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Daim noted the trust deficit must be worked on.

Civil servants, he believes, are likely to back the government of the day, even if they had only served one government all this while.

“That I don’t know (sabotage claims). But you have to work with (the civil service). Without them… you are dead.

“The civil servants have been coming to see me. They say ‘Oh, minister doesn’t trust me…’ and they (the political appointees) run the ministry,” he said.

“How can they run the ministry? They are outsiders. I have been telling the ministers the civil servants have been there since the British. When the British came here, they brought the civil service. 

“And you try now to discard them? You cannot.”

‘Civil servants also voters’

Daim, who served as finance minister during Mahathir’s first tenure, pointed out that civil servants and their families are also voters.

“I have been telling them, whether you like it or not, there are 1.6 million civil servants. And we are paying them every day. 

“Can you imagine? One, plus a wife. Plus one child. (There are votes there, so get them on your side or) you are in trouble. You know?” he was quoted as saying.

Daim’s remarks come just two days after Mahathir said that certain quarters, including those in the civil service, are unhappy with the Harapan administration due to its efforts to combat corruption.

“There are some who feel the government is not as good as the previous one because this government does not allow bribes,” he had said.

“There are some who feel this government should not continue, but (the country) should go back to being a corrupt government which benefits them.”

Mahathir had previously claimed that a culture of sabotage existed among civil servants in explaining the government’s move to “clean up” its agencies and departments.

In March, his deputy Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail also reminded civil servants of different political affiliations not to sabotage the government, but serve the people.


What is interesting is Rocky’s Bru take on Daim is very edgy on one of senior Cabinet Minister’s actions, not in tandem with the Civil Service in his Ministry.

Finance Minister and DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng has been demonstrations his colours and becoming more of an irritant to Gerontocracy Prime Minister.

It has been said recently quite after the successful Sandakan by-election, he and several DAP leaders faced off and demanded that Gerontocracy Prime Minister put the specific timetable for his departure as the seventh Prime Minister and exactly when Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim to replace him as the eight Prime Minister.

Gerontocracy Prime Minister wasn’t to pleased that he called his inner circle thereafter and they converged till 300am, to come to the solution of treating this matter.

Obviously Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim is impatient to come to power and DAP is doing the bidding for him.

BH story:

Tarikh dilantik PM ke-8 sedang dibincang – Anwar

BANGI: Tarikh untuk Presiden PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dilantik menjadi Perdana Menteri kelapan, sedang dibincangkan bersama Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Ketika memaklumkan perkara itu, Anwar yang juga Ahli Parlimen Port Dickson, berkata perbincangan antaranya dengan Perdana Menteri itu berjalan baik.

“Soal tarikh dan sebagainya (mengenai pelantikan sebagai Perdana Menteri) biarlah beliau (Dr Mahathir) berbincang dengan saya seperti yang sedang berlaku dengan baik.

“Saya tidak ada masalah sama sekali kerana Dr Mahathir punya peranan pada masa sekarang dan beliau harus diberi ruang.

“Andai kata saya ambil alih (kepimpinan) pun, peranan Dr Mahathir tetap ada sebagai seorang negarawan yang banyak berjasa kepada negara kita. Saya tidak fikir isu (penyerahan kuasa ini) adalah masalah,” katanya kepada media selepas menyampaikan ucaptama pada Konvensyen Belia Kebangsaan 2019 di Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) di sini, hari ini.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas proses pelantikannya sebagai Perdana Menteri yang dijangka dalam tempoh kira-kira setahun dari sekarang, berdasarkan perjanjian dicapai bersama parti komponen Pakatan Harapan (PH) sebelum Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-14 (PRU-14).

Ditanya mengenai ‘ulang tahun’ pembebasannya daripada penjara yang genap setahun esok, Anwar menzahirkan rasa syukur dan memanfaatkan kebebasan itu dengan menemui pelbagai pihak dari dalam dan keluar negara menemui rakan lama.

Anwar mendapat pengampunan penuh Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Muhammad V pada 16 Mei tahun lalu selepas rayuan pengampunan penuhnya dipertimbangkan pada Mesyuarat Lembaga Pengampunan bagi Wilayah-Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Labuan dan Putrajaya.


In the week where PH celebrated its first anniversary of toppling BN for the Federal Government at the 14GE, they have very little to show for after a whole year.

Lim Guan Eng and DAP is not about to tow the line and kow-tow to Gerontocracy Prime Minister, which many are seeing of being himself all again.

DAP yearn for change and undoing everything in the system that has been practiced since day one Merdeka.

It is abundantly clear of their agenda that they wanted the minority to have control and power of the majority and any obstacle to prevent for such should be undone.

It is very interesting how Gerontocracy Prime Minister wants to play this and stop from Anwar and majority of his PKR faction plus DAP from coming to power and undo the ‘Malay Agenda’ and dislodge the power of majority completely and subject them to the rule by the minority.
