Incompetence

Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and his Motley Crew obviously is unable to run the nation when they can’t even get their own political party organised, in accordance with party’s own Constitution and Registrar of Society.

KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has admitted that Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (PPBM) failure to hold annual general meetings (AGM) at the division, branch and central levels is due to the party’s poor organisational structure.

Dr Mahathir, who is PPBM chairman, said the party’s branches and divisions have yet to hold meetings at their respective levels despite having many members.

“To have an AGM, we need to have meetings at the branch and division levels but although there are many members, they haven’t organised meetings yet.

“Even some divisions are not properly organised yet, so we can’t determine who will attend the AGM if we hold one,” he said during a press conference at the Parliament building here today.

He revealed that the branches are the most disorganised section of the party, which was founded in September last year.

On Sunday, Registry of Societies (RoS) director-general Surayati Ibrahim said PPBM is facing a possibility of deregistration if it fails to resolve issues concerning a proposed amendment to the party’s constitution, and its failure to hold AGMs at the division, branch and central levels.

She had said PPBM’s failure to hold an AGM since it was registered a year ago was a violation under its own party constitution as well as under the Societies Act 1966.

She had said PPBM allegedly failed to conduct AGMs at its divisions and branches with a minimum quorum.

“What they did hold was a Special Committee Meeting which only involved its supreme council members. It did not involve divisional or grassroots members,” she was quoted as saying.

Surayati had said these problems remained unresolved despite PPBM going “back and forth” to the RoS headquarters to iron out the issues since June.

She had also said the issues that had affected PPBM’s status as a registered party pertained to the party’s inclusion of its women and youth wings, whereby terms such as Armada (Angkatan Bersatu Anak Muda) for the youth wing, and Srikandi for the women’s wing, were not in the party’s constitution.

Meanwhile, commenting on Pakatan Harapan’s registration with the RoS, Dr Mahathir said the pact is still waiting to hold a meeting with Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He said the opposition coalition has yet to receive word from the RoS on whether or not their application is approved although it was submitted several months ago.

“We are trying to meet the minister (Zahid) but we haven’t received any answers yet. We want to know if there are objections or if RoS disagreed with our (application) or if they have suggestions for us,” he added. –Reporting by ARFA YUNUS, FERNANDO FONG AND BEATRICE NITA JAY.

The defining address

HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Perak Tuanku Sultan Nazrin Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Azlan Shah urged all Malaysians to master the Bahasa Melayu, the national language, as a tool to foster unity and muhibbah.

IPOH: Sultan of Perak Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah said it was imperative for all Malaysians to be proficient in the national language to show their love and loyalty for the country.

He said the ability to communicate among the multi-racial people is a pre-condition for any possible interaction and that language is a medium that enables human relationship to grow closer.

The future of the country depends on the mutual understanding and harmony among the multiracial community, Sultan Nazrin said.

In the context of the education system, he said vernacular schools must acknowledge efforts by government by providing equal opportunities and open education policy by producing students with competency in the usage of national language.

“Vernacular schools must show their commitment towards the government and the people in this country, and take responsibility to ensure that their students are able to master the language in the same proficiency level, if not better than those who attend national schools.

“Efforts to improve the competency of Bahasa Malaysia among students at the vernacular schools must be seen and accepted as a challenge. (And) this achievement in ensuring this must be made the main index for the schools’ accomplishment,” he said in his speech in his speech at SMJK Sam Tet’s excellence awards ceremony today.

He said the success of improving the students’ competency in the national language usage would help foster a nation with united society and minimise any uneasiness among the people, particularly towards vernacular schools.

“The founders of the country, when establishing the National Education Policy and the Razak Report (Malayan educational proposal), had introduced a school education system known as the national school (sekolah kebangsaan).

“This was based on the premises that the school is the best platform to unite people from different backgrounds and for them to get know each other, understand and nurture mutual respect among them, thus inculcating harmonious relations since the tender age.

“However, today’s dynamic have presented itself new challenges which calls for adjustments. Vernacular schools are allowed to continue operating. The open policy adapted by the government, must be given due appreciation by proving that fostering of unity can still be achieved through vernacular schools.

“The national language is the identity of a nation. It would be embarrassing and ironic if someone with Malaysian citizenship, and enjoys all the benefits and privileges of a citizen, but could not understand, speak, write and read in the language,” he said.

Dame of Desperado, Courtesan of Compulsive Con

Claire Newcastle-Brown propensity to continuously lie upon another lie is coming to a formal end when she is unable to literally put the money where her mouth is.

New Straits Times story:

Clare Brown fails to furnish evidence in London Court over bribery claims

Controversial Sarawak Report’s chief editor Clare Rewcastle Brown

SYED UMAR ARIFF

KUALA LUMPUR: Controversial Sarawak Report’s chief editor Clare Rewcastle Brown has allegedly failed to furnish evidence at the London High Court over claims that Pas president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang had received an RM90 million bribe from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Political news portal The Third Force’s writer Raggie Jessy in a posting said Brown had fell short in meeting a 4pm deadline (United Kingdom time) yesterday, to substantiate the allegations, thus violating a court order dated Aug 2, 2017, which required her to file and serve defence by the stipulated date and time.

“As a result, the Sarawak Report Chief Editor will now have to return to court in October, where it is likely that her counsel will make another attempt to seek an extension.

“Nonetheless, today’s development is set to trigger an alarm within the (Tun Dr) Mahathir (Mohamad)-led Malaysian opposition coalition that has painstakingly demonised Najib based on her articles,” the writer said.

Following Dr Mahathir’s cooperation with Brown and use of her articles to criticise Najib, Raggie contended the former prime minister would now have to clarify Brown’s failure to produce the evidence.

The writer alleged Dr Mahathir was likely to be concerned over the public’s view of him, and raise the question whether Brown was paid to smear Najib’s reputation.

“The onus is now on Dr Mahathir to explain just why Clare failed to produce the ‘smoking gun evidence’ that served as the basis to his attacks against the leadership of Najib.

“The former premier’s biggest fear is that Malaysians will begin to see him for the crook he is, and question if he did indeed pay Clare off to blacken Najib’s name.”

Hadi is suing Brown over an allegedly defamatory article titled ‘As Najib Denies All Over 1MDB, Let’s Not Forget His Many Other Criminal Connections – COMMENT’ published on Aug 6 last year, which plaintiff had claimed as being false.

The article purportedly alleges that Hadi had received bribes from Najib to the tune of RM90 million. Hadi was represented by lawyers from the legal firm of Carter-Ruck and barrister Jacob Dean.

Raggie said the Pas president had instructed his lawyers to demand an apology from Brown through three letters, none of which she has responded to.

“Despite having ample time since last year to put together her evidence, Brown failed to offer a shred of it, meaning the abundance of documents she claims to possess against Najib, are nothing but fabrications. If indeed the documents were genuine, why is she so reluctant to adduce them? Wouldn’t the submission of such ‘evidences’ have convinced the judge that Najib was a shoddy character capable of bribing someone like Hadi?

“Her failure to do so goes a long way to show that she had malicious intent to depose a democratically elected leader of a sovereign nation. And now that the tide seems to be against her favour, she attempted to drag the trial past the 14th general election, by seeking an extension from the judge.”

In reiterating against Brown’s credibility, Raggie said Brown had yet to deny a recent confirmation by “whistleblower sources” from the United States over allegations of Dr Mahathir channelling “millions” to her accounts in efforts to topple Najib.

“Not only did the Sarawak Report Chief Editor deny this (the latest allegation against her), she has yet to debunk articles in which I accused her of conspiring to sabotage 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Bhd) and to turn the Chinese government against the administration of Najib.”

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

Earlier in the month, she alleged that she would not able to get fair trial for any cases brought forth by Malaysians against her for her unsubstantiated allegations.

New Straits Times story:

London Court favours Hadi in case management in suit against Clare Rewcastle-Brown

The case management of a civil suit by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang (left) against Sarawak Report founder and editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown took place at the Courts in London, United Kingdom on Aug 2. NSTP pic.

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s case management involving his civil suit against Sarawak Report founder and editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown, favoured on behalf of the PAS president.

The Case management took place at the Courts in London, United Kingdom on Aug 2.

In a statement, Hadi’s political secretary Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar said the case management arose after Rewcastle-Brown applied to the court for the Marang member of parliament to deposit monies with the court as a security for legal costs involving the parties court proceedings.

“This is in the event he (Hadi) was to lose the case and would have to pay Rewcastle-Brown’s legal costs, which she estimates to be around £800,000 (RM4.5 million) in total for the whole hearing till completion.”

The civil suit is related to an article titled ‘As Najib Denies All Over 1MDB, Let’s Not Forget His Many Other Criminal Connections – COMMENT’ published on Aug 6 last year which Hadi’s counsel claimed as being false.

The article purportedly alleges that Hadi had received bribes from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to the tune of RM90 million.

Hadi was represented by lawyers from the legal firm of Carter-Ruck and barrister Jacob Dean.

Carter-Ruck, assisted by a legal opinion from a law expert in Malaysia had successfully argued, that there exists well-established laws between the UK and Malaysia which allows for Brown to claim the costs through Malaysian courts, which will see a cost of not more than RM80,000.

“Based on his confidence on the case from the beginning, Hadi had already offered to deposit this amount with the court, which was sufficient and uncontroversial.

“Rewcastle-Brown’s arguments that she cannot successfully bring a legal suit against Hadi in Malaysia as the judiciary, government and the Prime Minister are corrupted and are complicit with him was rejected by the court.

“As the court observed, these serious allegations were not supported by any evidence from Rewcastle-Brown whatsoever, despite having months to provide some,” he said.

Samsuri said the London Court had also made it clear that in the absence of evidence, the court could not accept that another sovereign state that has good ties and relationship with UK is corrupt.

The court accepted Hadi’s offer to pay the RM80,000 deposit.

Samsuri said in recognition of the flawed basis of her application, Rewcastle-Brown was ordered to pay Hadi two thirds of his costs of the exercise.

She has to pay £15,000 (RM83,719) to Hadi now, with the quantum of the balance to be assessed by the court in due course.

“The court also ordered Rewcastle-Brown to submit her defence into court within 21 days so Hadi can proceed with this case and she cannot continue to prevaricate,” he said.

A request to appeal this judgment by Rewcastle-Brown’s lawyers was disallowed by the court.

“This is a very positive development for Hadi in his bid to clear his name of the allegations by Rewcastle-Brown and Sarawak Report in their article,” Samsuri said.

“He also would like to extend his gratitude to members of PAS and the members of public who have been supporting him in this very difficult case,” he said.

Hadi was also informed by Carter-Ruck that the Malaysian High Commission in London had sent representatives to attend and to observe the proceedings as many political allegations were made against the Prime Minister of Malaysia, the government of Malaysia and the judiciary in Malaysia by Rewcastle-Brown in documents that she is filing into court.

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

Original analysis by The Third Force on the suit case brought forth by PAS President Dato’ Seri Hj Hari Awang against Rewcastle-Brown for allegations of the RM90million bribe.

Sarawak Report fails to meet 4.00pm deadline

Clare Rewcastle Brown a.k.a. Sarawak Report failed to file her defence to prove that Najib Razak paid Hadi Awang RM90 million at 4.00pm UK time yesterday, 30th August 2017. She asked the court for an extension of time but the judge rejected her application. The case will, therefore, proceed in October 2017.

THE THIRD FORCE

At 4.00pm United Kingdom (UK) time, Sarawak Report’s Chief Editor, Clare Rewcastle Brown, failed to furnish a London Court with evidence that Malaysian premier Najib Razak bribed PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang RM90 million. Her failure to do so violates a Court Order dated 2nd August 2017 (see below) that required her to file and serve her defence by the stipulated date.

To recap, and in short, Clare is being sued over a Sarawak Report editorial alleging that Najib bribed Hadi RM90 million to solicit political favours from the latter. The PAS president asked his United Kingdom (UK) based lawyers to send her three letters demanding that she apologise for the false allegation but the apology never came.

It didn’t because the extremely recalcitrant and preponderant Ms. Rewcastle ignored the letters and told the judge that she received dozens of such letters, none of which ended in court battles. Earlier today, she asked the judge to grant her an extension to submit her case against Hadi but it was refused.

Despite having ample time since last year to put together her evidence, Clare failed to offer a shred of it, meaning the abundance of documents she claims to possess against Najib are nothing but fabrications. The judge probably knew that. I mean, if indeed the documents were genuine, why is she so reluctant to adduce them? Wouldn’t the submission of such ‘evidences’ have convinced the judge that Najib was a shoddy character capable of bribing someone like Hadi?

Her failure to do so goes a long way to show that she had malicious intent to depose of a democratically elected leader of a sovereign nation. And now that the tide seems against her favour, she attempted to drag the trial past the 14th general election by seeking an extension from the judge. But the judge more or less told her to fly kites.

As a result, the Sarawak Report Chief Editor will now have to return to court in October, where it is likely that her counsel will make another attempt to seek an extension. Nonetheless, today’s development is set to trigger an alarm within the Mahathir-led Malaysian opposition coalition that has painstakingly demonised Najib based on her articles.

The onus is now on Mahathir to explain just why Clare failed to produce the “smoking gun evidence” that served as the basis to his attacks against the leadership of Najib Razak. The former premier’s biggest fear is that Malaysians will begin to see him for the crook he is and question if he did indeed pay Clare off to blacken Najib’s name.

But that’s just what I’ve been saying for a long time.

As a matter of fact, whistleblower sources from the United States (US) have recently confirmed that Mahathir did indeed channel millions to Clare in a bid to depose of Najib through democratic thievery. Not only is the Sarawak Report Chief Editor yet to deny this, she has yet to debunk articles in which I accused her of conspiring to sabotage 1MDB and to turn the Chinese government against the administration of Najib Razak.

Did I not tell you this lady is full of shit?

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

What is very interesting is that Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad incessant open attacks against 1MDB as a strategic tool to oust Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak is based on stories first appeared in Sarawak Report.

Dr. Mahathir manipulated and lied, one upon another along with the incessant twist of foreign media, headed by the Neo Con Jewish paper Wall Street Journal.

The desperation of Dr. Mahathir’s motley crew is abundant clear and his ‘Tale of Lies’ coming to a tail end.

The stories concocted in a series of tale about complex twist of facts and fabrication of materials, infused with stolen information which were published by Sarawak Report and foreign media.

That is in cohort with Dr. Mahathir through speeches to oust Prime Minister Najib in his road shows since 30 months ago, which later co-operated with the Opposition and turned it as a strategy to demonise Prime Minister Najib.

Even Dr. Mahathir’s agents attempt to go around the world to make reports against the alleged “Theft, criminal breach of trust, cheating and money laundering” never actually took off.

In fact, they which are also being twisted as a complex act of kleptocracy, was never actually proven in any court but game of perception continuously kept aline by foreign media.

United States Department of Justice (DoJ) never really gotten anywhere with their might and will, but to make announcement year-on-year and a pursuit through civil means instead of taking the named individuals in any criminal court anywhere.

Even that could no longer hold water.

DoJ stay on civil suits a delaying tactic, say Jho Low’s lawyers

| August 29, 2017

Parties involved in United States Department of Justice’s ‘1MDB’ civil suits want proceedings to continue, says report.

jho-low-dojs

PETALING JAYA: The United States Department of Justice’s move to put on hold civil forfeiture lawsuits against assets purchased with funds allegedly embezzled from 1MDB is just a delaying tactic, say lawyers representing Jho Low and other parties involved.

On Aug 10, DoJ officials asked a judge in Los Angeles to put on hold civil forfeiture lawsuits because it was feared it would interfere with a criminal investigation into alleged money laundering involving the funds in question.

As a result, the parties involved in the DoJ’s suits have now urged the court to continue with the proceedings.

An FBI agent had warned in the court filing that information disclosed in the civil cases may reveal “potential targets and subjects of the investigation and the investigative techniques that have been and will be used in the investigation”.

“Now, the government’s effort to indefinitely stay all discovery – and almost everything else about this case too – exposes the reality that the government has no interest in exchanging information with the claimants, respecting claimants’ substantive and procedural rights, or moving this case forward at all towards a resolution.

“It is now apparent that the government was crying wolf about potential delays in discovery in order to bolster its efforts to win by default without presenting its case on merits,” read the 19-page document, according to Mkini.

The parties who stand to lose various assets in the DoJ’s civil suits argued that the US government had tried to keep the claimants from appearing in the case for many months in an attempt to secure forfeiture of the properties by default.

According to the report, the three sets of documents are dated Sept 18, but appeared in the California Central District Court’s electronic court system yesterday.

The three motions are for DoJ’s suit seeking the forfeiture of the Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills property, a separate suit for all business assets related to the property, and a third suit seeking the forfeiture of royalties owed by EMI Music Publishing Group North America Holdings Inc to JW Nile (BVI) Ltd, JCL Media Ltd, and/or Jwnwel Capital Ltd. All three were filed by the same group of lawyers.

Jynwel Capital is a Hong Kong-based company owned by Malaysian businessman Low Taek Jho, who is better known as Jho Low.

In its latest court filings in California, in June, the DoJ said it was seeking to seize US$540 million (RM2.3 billion) in assets including art works, jewellery, a yacht worth worth US$165 million, and film rights purchased with funds allegedly embezzled from 1MDB.

It followed the civil forfeiture suit by the DoJ in July last year, which sought to recover all the assets including but not limited to the Park Lane hotel in New York, a luxury hotel in Beverly Hills, condominiums in New York, a private jet, expensive works of art, as well as the financing of Martin Scorsese’s movie “The Wolf of Wall Street”, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio.

The total value of the assets sought by the DoJ stands at US$1.8 billion (RM7.7 billion).

In the court action yesterday, lawyers for the parties involved argued that the DoJ’s request is unconstitutional and “improperly broad”.

“The government’s overbroad and extraordinary request for a stay of indeterminate duration, during which time the defendant’s assets would remain in limbo, should be denied,” the lawyers said in the filings.

They wanted the DoJ to prove how the investigation process and other actions taken under the civil suit, would affect investigations or prosecution. The lawyers also wanted the stay on proceedings to be time-limited instead of indefinite as it is now.

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

1MDB is about a commercial entity facing the usual commercial issues and being resolved, the commercial way.

The desperation is showing. Even those who believed in Dr. Mahathir are left sinking in the combination of blind loyalty and delusion grappling with straws to hold on to.

Soon Rewcastle-Brown would be finished by her own lies and unsubstantiated stories and that would trickle a domino effect, that would eventually drag Dr. Mahathir down through the infamy of face in the mud.

Its coming to an end at the end, quite quickly.

Pay with peanuts, monkeys go Planet of the Apes

It is pointless to provide facilities of world class in standard if there are amongst Malaysians who unable to alleviate themselves and appreciate how transformation brought forth by design did provide betterment for them, the society and the nation as a whole.

Malaysians ought to come to maturity in attitude, conduct and how they carry about their lives what seemingly coming to age after being sovereign and able to decide for themselves 60 years after Merdeka.

Federal Government  spend RM21b to construct the 51km Sg. Buloh-Kajang (SBK) line which was opened by Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak, as part of his socio-economic transformation program to bring the quality of life of Malaysians to another level and drive economic growth.

However, it is appalling that there are pockets within our community who boistrously very unappreciative of the world class facilities provided.

Things ought to be in the bin, tossed on the glass ceiling of a city centre station

A concrete bench is chipped!

Wall of the conveniences for the ladies vandalised

Deep scratches on benches

What is jaw-dropping is that so many commuters within Klang Valley especially those who live, work, shop or educated along the 3-5km radius of the 51km SBK line need no longer harrow God forsaken experience of massive traffic jams, welcome such transport system infrastructure.

Only a handful savages live amongst us who could invoke their beastility within five days of public operation, which already recorded 140,000 paid commuters.

Prasarana charges ten sen per kilometre on the SBK line and provides 300 feeder buses along the 51km route via 19 stations. It is designed for affordability and convenience, for commuters to travel from the suburbs to the city centre, with comfort and efficiency.

These socially ill-attitude primates must within their system believe that when they pay peanuts, they should be monkeys. Thus, they should be off our trains!

Incorrigible ignominious

It would be impossible to describe a stubborn man who simply refuse to see things except from his own personal vision, on a personal agenda and ridicullously obsessed about it, all and in sundry.

NST story:

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says he has not and will not apologise to his former deputy Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. File pix.

KUALA LUMPUR: Former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has revealed that he has not and will not apologise to his former protégé-turned-enemy and now ally, incarcerated opposition leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

In an interview with Australian broadcast agency SBS World News, Tun Mahathir said this is because he has never asked his detractors to apologise for criticising him.

“We have all said nasty things about each other. I don’t ask people to apologise for calling me all kinds of names and accusing me of all kinds of wrongdoings.

“What happened is in the past and we can’t be apologising for something that happened in the past,” he was quoted as saying.

Anwar was Tun Mahathir’s deputy until they had a falling out in 1998, an event which sparked protests by Anwar supporters calling for political reform in the country.

He was imprisoned on charges of corruption and sodomy shortly after, though Anwar claimed he was innocent and that the charges were politically-motivated.

The former Umno man was released from prison in 2004 and went on to lead the opposition coalition, but was jailed again in 2015 on separate sodomy charges and is currently behind bars serving a five-year sentence.

In Sept last year, the two nemeses met face-to-face, under friendly circumstances, for the first time in 18 years – but the reunion has been described as a political ploy which “demonstrates the depth of their political opportunism and desperation”.

Aside from Anwar, Tun Mahathir has also showed support for the DAP and its advisor, Lim Kit Siang, who has been one of the former premier’s harshest critics for decades.

When asked who will be named prime minister should Pakatan Harapan win the upcoming 14th general election, Tun Mahathir responded by saying “party infighting” has prevented the opposition pact from uniting and discussing the issue.

“It is divisive. The moment you name a (candidate for) prime minister, there is going to be a lot of unsatisfied people who may sabotage the new opposition coalition.

“So it is better for us to name a prime minister (once) we win. It becomes irrelevant to name a prime minister now and then we lose,” he added.

It is believed that Tun Mahathir was referring to Anwar’s party, PKR, which recently lost an ally, Pas, which ended its ‘tahaluf siyasi’ (political cooperation).

Pas’ Syura Council decided that the move was necessary in order to defend the party’s Islamic agenda, aside from accusing PKR of breaking many terms of its conditional cooperation, including failing to support Pas in its Islamic agenda, and working against it in two by-elections last year.

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

His interview to Aljazzera is so misleading and wrong on so many counts. He said “If you refuse to see evidence, then I cannot help you”.

Yet, he is someone who refused to see evidence presented in his face which proven him wrong.

Firstly, Attorney General is not compelled to reveal the investigation of any papers forwarded to the Attorney General’s Chambers to the public.

Secondly, there is no need to list down the corrupt and abuse of power practices which he is involved, under his watch or having the knowledge but did not stop the rot throughout his administration of 22 years as the Prime Minister and UMNO President.

Example is the rape and plunder of Bank Bumiputra a few times, which started with the deception of Hong Kong businesses and careless disbursement of funds through Bumiputra Malaysia Finance. That led to the brutal murder of Assistant General Manager A Jalil Ibrahim in 1983.

Thirdly, Bank Negara Malaysia had a negative capital of RM30 billion a quarter of century ago, due to negligence of the central bank gambling into forex market.

The negative capital provided the opportunity of rogue money traders such as George Soros to attack and manipulate the Ringgit, till had a serious adverse effect on the nation’s economy, financial, capital and debt market and triggered a recession.

Fourthly, the Malaysian Government had to bail out many corporations.

Fifthly, the fact that the authorities never pushed for all of his wrongdoings through the proper channel and procedures like being charged and submitted to trial is about his stature as a Statesman. The window of consideration that he is very old and it is unfashionable to trump an OAP as an accused in a criminal court, is being manipulated by him.

Sixthly, he interference into Judiciary is incredible and became a landmark case amongst the Commonwealth where a Lord President was sacked and five other Supreme Court Judges were adversely affected in 1988.

Seventhly, Dr. Mahathir the past two  and a half years conspired and used Neo Con Jewish controlled media to rubbish, manipulate information, lie and slander Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak’s administration and him personally.

Eighthly, in his obsession to oust Prime Minister Najib, the nation and global confidence towards Malaysia as the 17th globally most important trading nation has been adversely affected.

An example is about Malaysia’s economy going bad to due mismanagement of the economy, over-borrowing and kleptocratic practices, which many times almost flushed several trade deals and projects, which are impetus to the economy.

Ninthly, Dr. Mahathir’s accusations without proper verified facts and in fact, some fabricated information and documents about strategic investment corporation 1MDB has yet to be proven otherwise.

Yet, he still harp on it despite one by one evidence are being unravelled against to his charge, attacks, allegations and slanderous remarks.

Bloomberg story:

Saudi Arabia Says Donation to Malaysian Premier Was Genuine

April 15, 2016, 10:22 AM GMT+8 April 15, 2016, 5:59 PM GMT+8

Saudi Arabia said a large donation to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was “genuine,” providing some clarity on the source of the funds amid reports the money came via a Malaysian state investment company.

Saudi authorities were aware of the donation and it came without strings, Malaysia’s official news agency Bernama reported, citing Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir. He was speaking to reporters in Istanbul on Thursday after meeting with Najib during the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation summit.

“It is a genuine donation with nothing expected in return,” Al-Jubeir was quoted as saying. “We are also fully aware that the attorney general of Malaysia has thoroughly investigated the matter and found no wrongdoing. So, as far as we are concerned, the matter is closed.”

The Saudi comments follow earlier reports by media including the Wall Street Journal that the money came instead from entities linked to 1Malaysia Development Bhd., the debt-ridden state fund whose advisory board Najib chairs. 1MDB, which is selling assets to pare its debt, is the subject of various probes both at home and abroad into its finances.

‘Exhaustive Investigations’

“This confirms what the prime minister maintained all along, and what multiple lawful authorities concluded after exhaustive investigations: the funds were a donation from Saudi Arabia,” Najib’s press secretary Tengku Sariffuddin said in a statement Friday.

Najib is facing his biggest political crisis since coming to power seven years ago amid questions over the $681 million that appeared in his accounts before the 2013 election, which the ruling coalition, in power since independence in 1957, won with its slimmest margin yet. Attorney General Mohamed Apandi Ali in January closed the door on a graft probe of Najib, clearing him of wrongdoing over the “personal contribution” from Saudi royals.

The premier returned $620 million in August 2013 that was not utilized, Apandi said, without specifying what the rest of the funds were used for. Najib has maintained the funds were not used for private benefit.

Najib allegedly received millions of dollars in his personal accounts between 2011 and 2013 from the Saudi finance ministry and two men identifying themselves as princes from the Middle Eastern nation, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported late last month.

Former premier Mahathir Mohamad, the country’s longest serving leader who governed until 2003, has waged a public campaign to get Najib out of office. The feud has grown increasingly acrimonious as Mahathir attacked the prime minister over the financial scandals and his economic record.

“This also proves that the wild allegations pushed for one year by Tun Mahathir Mohamad and his Anti-Najib Campaign are completely false,” Tengku said.

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

Tenthly, Dr Malahathir refused to accept Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubair’s explanation on their position about the “USD681 million donation and its genuine donation and do not expect anything in return”. This also include the refusal to accept the close association with the Saudi Monarch demonstrated by conduct when his Majesty King Salman Al Saud’s state visit to Malaysia two months ago.

He conveniently makes no qualms about making seditious remarks which include lying about “(His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan) Agong is under house arrest”.

That is not withstanding the fact he continuously propagate the false notion about “(Prime Minister) Najib would be arrested if he sets foot in United States or United Kingdom”, since over 18 months ago.

We could go on and on this. However, Dr. Mahathir has been harping so many allegations against Prime Minister Najib without him once ever personally made a report with the Police and MACC but instead getting his minions to offer their heads to be slaughtered for wrongful allegations.

That is a classic impossible game of an incorrigible ignominious.

Kit Siang only concerned if issues serve his purpose: Former DAP vice-chairman

KUALA LUMPUR: DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang has been labelled an “opportunist” and a “hypocrite” for his nonchalance over the controversial Bumiputra Malaysia Finance (BMF) scandal in the early 1980s.

This was despite the opposition leader then leading a crusade against then prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad over the issue. Lim’s indifference was likely to appease a segment of Malay voters ahead of the 14th General Election (GE14), said former DAP vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim.

“This shows that Lim is an opportunist who will only take matters into his concerns if they serve his purpose, (and in the process), turn them into huge criminal issues. Otherwise, he will just sweep them under the carpet.

“The issue will remain the same. Only his reaction will be different,”

Tunku Abdul Aziz said yesterday. As of now, Tunku Abdul Aziz said Lim would have to downplay his response to the BMF controversy to establish a working relationship with Dr Mahathir and subsequently, hope to secure a certain deposit from a Malay vote base.

“If he upsets Dr Mahathir (by raising the BMF scandal), the already fragile relationship between them will simply disintegrate.”

Tunku Abdul Aziz said such opportunistic traits were synonymous with Lim.

“I have seen such traits in him. That is how he treats PKR and Pas. He is just using them for DAP’s purpose. I had once asked him personally, are we (DAP) taking (former opposition leader Datuk Seri) Anwar (Ibrahim) and Pas seriously? Lim could not give me a straight answer.”

It was reported last week that the United States Central Intelligence Agency had linked Dr Mahathir’s administration to the BMF scandal between 1979 and 1983 that had cost the country nearly US$1 billion (RM3.57 billion) in two botched loan deals.

The scandal also involved the murder of a Bank Bumiputra auditor.

In response to the issue, Lim had published two books on BMF. The first was published in 1983 titled The BMF Scandal and the second was in 1986, titled BMF: The Scandal of Scandals. So far, Mahathir has denied his involvement in the scandal, while Lim was reportedly to have said that the CIA findings “did not reveal anything new”.

Lim’s disposition had also courted criticisms from other former DAP leaders. Law lecturer Shamsher Singh Thind said while Lim had the moral capacity to forgive Dr Mahathir for jailing him during the infamous Op Lalang period, he should not forgive him for causing the country to lose billions of ringgit.

“Lim had written two books on the BMF scandal and issued numerous press statements, demanding a Royal Commission of Inquiry to be established for what he called ‘the greatest banking and financial scandal in Malaysian history’.

“In a 1987 press statement, Lim had also said that Dr Mahathir was personally liable for the US$200 million (RM886 million) loss suffered by Bank Bumiputera after he (Dr Mahathir) requested the said bank to give a loan to Maminco Sdn Bhd, a company which had no asset.

“Lim also said that the BMF scandal cost Malaysians US$2.5 billion and ‘the government had given the Malaysian people and the world the impression that it had a lot of things to hide, and was going out of its way to protect the BMF culprits.’

But now, Lim himself is protecting Dr Mahathir,” Shamsher said. Former Sepang DAP parliamentary liaison committee member, Tan Tuan Tat said Lim used to “howl” at any issue in order to prop himself up as the “people’s champion”. “

Of course, he is an opportunist. He has to be nice to Dr Mahathir now because he needs the Malay votes to win GE14. “One wonders what has happened to DAP’s mantra on Competency, Accountability and Transparency, or CAT,” he said.

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

Dr Mahathir failed in every stunt to oust Prime Minister Najib, since the former launched the open attack against the latter in March 2015.

Focusing on the 1MDB, first he tried to use then Deputy Prime Minister and Deputy UMNO President Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd. Yassin to canvass support amongst strategic UMNO and Government leaders, as his foreign media partners incessantly started to shell.

Then the ‘Four Horesmen of Conspiracy’ in lightning speed formed a Special Task Force to “Investigate what had been reported by WSJ and Sarawak Report”.

The flanked attacks on Prime Minister Najib’s position failed miserably. When Muhyiddin was sacked, Dr. Mahathir tried to use UMNO to mount that pressure.

He hoped UMNO delegates raised the matter in the Dec 2015 AGM and cause a ripple, which eventually pressure Prime Minister Najib to step down. It failed too.

He then was counting the same ripple was created amongst the Opposition MPs and some of BN MPs to join in the fray for a vote of no confidence at the Dewan Rakyat.

He was wrong.

Then he quit UMNO. He was hoping that would create a desired snowball effect.

The truth is majority of UMNO members were not bothered. 

Dr Mahathir came to realisation that Prime Minister Najib cannot be toppled through UMNO. The only way left is to sink Barisan Nasional.

He cannot do this with his existing or perhaps waining clout. It has to have a more powerful push-factor, so that at least half of the nation would participate in the force to topple Prime Minister Najib.

Then on 4 March 2016, he launched ‘Deklarasi Rakyat’ teaming up with arc enemy Lim Kit Siang, DAP, PKR, anti-establishment activists, like-minded NGO, the works.

He hoodwinked the rakyat to sign the petition, which would be brought upon to His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong for the ouster of Prime Minister Najib.

The Sarawak State Election and the twin bi-election middle of 2016 is the proof that BN’s popularity is still good if not strong. At least, the Chinese votes have improved compared to 13GE.

When the petition did not reach the desired effect, he quickly launch his All-Malay parti Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

Pribumi Bersatu was quick to Alliance themselves with the Opposition, particularly DAP and PAN. 

Despite there are uneasiness and resentment amongst DAP hardliners for Lim to be politically so chummy-chummy with DAP’s arc enemy for half a century, the Emperorissimo still steam on.

Lim calculated that Dr Mahathir is the ticket for the Opposition to break the conservative-Malay support, which is the mainstay of BN.

So at the moment, Lim views Dr Mahathir’s obsession to topple Prime Minister Najib even at the expense of the Malays losing power for the first time in six decades as the perfect opportunity for Chinese Chauvinist DAP be the real power despite being minority.

Maha-Mule

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

UMNO Baru Founder Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad may not want the Chinese Chauvinist DAP to rule, although they are riding on him in the process to cripple BN by the success of the Malays turning their back against UMNO.

The Fourth Prime Minister is obsessed going around demonising against UMNO President Prime Minister Dato’ Srì Mohd. Najib Tun Razak with manipulation of facts, slanders and lies. It also at the expense of UMNO.

Dr. Mahathir proclaimed that “DAP assured me that if they are in power, they would adhere to the Federal Constitution”.

What he is naively trying to insinuate is that the Chauvinist Chinese DAP would adhere and respect Special Malay Rights provisions in the Federal Constitution, like Article 153.

However, it is doubtful that DAP leaders would leave alone institution for benefits of Bumiputera such as MARA, UiTM, PNB, FELDA, RISDA, FELCRA, TH and various Zakat Boards.

UMNO President Prime Minister Dato’ Srì Mohd. Najib Tun Razak was mindful enough when this was specifically mentioned in this year’s UMNO General Assembly keynote address.

After 2008, it is apparent that DAP was the culprits behind who wanted Selangor State Govt to interfere and dip into the zakat monies collected in the Baitulmal for development purposes.

Let us be reminded for the brief 11 months DAP ruled through puppet MB Perak Nizar Jamaluddin, land parcels of 999 years lease were rampantly issued to Non Malays, particularly their supporters.

In the eight years DAP ruled Penang, many Malay petty traders have suffered. This is not withstanding the many corruption involving key  State Govt officials.

Even the Chief Minister and family are rampantly involved in corruption and at the moment being charged.

DAP is the party with 37 MPs in Dewan Rakyat. That makes them the most powerful Opposition compared to PKR, PAN, PAS and the new kid on the block, Dr Mahathir’s Pribumi Bersatu.

Dr. Mahathir is DAP’s Trojan Horse into the traditional Malay voters. Inadvertently, this would destroy UMNO when DAP comes to power and the struggle for the Malay Agenda is gone.

Then again as a animal being riden on, it does not the same perks when the journey ends. The rider would be in the warmth and comfort of the abode where as the ride, remains outside with the elements.

Maybe DAP sincerity of providing fair and progressive leadership is something Dr. Mahathir trying to hoodwink voters, especially the Malays.

However, the Malays would never be the mule that Dr Mahathir allowed himself to be.

The Hooded Monkey

It is believed that Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad would not get his opportunity to meet the Conference of Rulers and present his ‘Deklarasi Rakyat’ with false “1.4 million signed petition” as the how of support of complain against Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak.

It is also believed that the Fifth UMNO President did not submit a formal request for the special slot audience, at the recent 242nd Conference of Rulers meeting.

Again, Dr Mahathir demonstrated he had no qualms of achieving his objective which include manipulating the good name of the office of HRH of Malay Rulers to provide there falsehood in the traction that his agenda to topple Prime Minister Najib.

Previously, he seditiously lie by pronouncing “Agong is under House Arrest” when the audience he sought with His Majesty XIV Agong was not entertained at the speed and urgency that he wanted.

In September, he announced when he was in London that if the Opposition wins the 14GE Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia President Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd. Yassin will be the next prime minister, did not augur well with the other Opposition parties.
