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.

Emperorissimo Eroticism

Faust of ‘Flip-Flop’ Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is really taking a huge political suicidal risk for teaming up with arc enemy Chinese Chauvinist Emperorissimo of DAP Lim Kit Siang, in his personal quest to oust Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak.

NST story:

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

BY SYED UMAR ARIFF AND BALVIN KAUR – 30 JANUARY 2017 @ 2:01 PM

Facebook 0 Twitter Share 0

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

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.

KUALA LUMPUR: After more than a year of having left government service, former Attorney-General (AG) Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail today conceded that the termination of his services as AG followed the government’s General Orders.

Abdul Gani, whose services was terminated due to health reasons on July 27, 2015, said that the AG was deemed to be a government servant unlike judges and the Auditor-General.

He was responding to a question on the matter by lawyer Syahredzan Johan on the last day of the International Malaysia Law Conference here today.

Subservient to a despicable convict

Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad recent appearance in Court of Appeal in support of ex-Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim’s injunction of the NSC Act, simply translate that ex-Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Mohd. Yassin is subservient to the informal PKR Leader.

The Malay Mail Online story:

Muhyiddin now subservient to Anwar, says PM’s aide

Published: September 10, 2016 09:00 PM GMT+8

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 10 — Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s political future now depends on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the prime minister’s press secretary said today after the PKR de facto leader’s meeting with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Datuk Seri Tengku Sariffuddin said this was because it would be Anwar who agrees or disagrees with former prime minister Dr Mahathir’s “pleadings”.

“So Tan Sri Muhyiddin is now subservient to Datuk Seri Anwar.

“Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s disloyalty to the party and government has been repaid by natural justice. What a difference a year makes,” Tengku said in a statement.

Tengku also claimed that Dr Mahathir’s agenda has failed, describing the elder statesman’s recent visit to Anwar in court, the first meeting between the two in 18 years since Dr Mahathir sacked Anwar as his deputy, as “further evidence of his desperation”.

“It shows that Tun Mahathir’s selfish political agenda has failed. It also demonstrates that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin will have to play second fiddle to Datuk Seri Anwar in Tun Mahathir’s alliance with the opposition,” said Tengku.

Muhyiddin is now president of newly-formed Bumiputera-centric party, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, after he was sacked from Umno and as deputy to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

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

The Adviser of new party Pribumi Bersatu recent conduct simply placed Muo-born son of a revered religious teacher who proclaimed to be “UMNO Totok”, to below the criminal who subjected many persons to get into unlawful and taboo sexual relations.

Since UMNO statutory divisional meetings coming to tail end, there would be less coverage on political speeches by UMNO Leaders especially those who gained prominence such as Cabinet Ministers.

However, it is unlikely the take up of the Malays and Bumiputeras into Tun Dr. Mahathir-Muhyiddin’s new party Pribumi Bersatu would strike prominence since relatively, hardly anyone is practically interested to sign up.

S0 far, the party only managed to attract frustrated, dejected and personally dissatisfied individuals within UMNO.

It was unlike when Anwar was sacked and ‘Reformasi’ movement was launched, where prominent UMNO Youth and Anwar supporters at Division level left and in many places crippled UMNO.

It was clearly demonstrated in the 10GE where Cabinet Ministers such as Megat Junid Megat Ayub, Abdul Hamid Othman, Mustapha Mohamad, Annuar Musa and the whole state of Terengganu were lost to the Opposition.

So was it as the consequence of Team A Vs Team B in party leadership challenge of April 1987. UMNO split almost right in the middle. Then Prime Minister Dr Mahathir lost Musa Hitam, Tengku Razaleigh, Rais Yatim, Shahrir Samad, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Abdul Ajib Ahmad.
