Mahathir Like Mugabe Must Face The Inevitable!

MT

Tun Mahathir and former Zimbabwe’s president Robert Gabriel Mugabe have to come to grips with reality; their time has passed.

On Tuesday in Harare Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe resigned as his country’s present ending marking the end of his 37 year rule.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/nov/21/robert-mugabe-resigns-as-president-of-zimbabwe

The writing for the end of Mugabe’s hold on power was seen last week when the armoured vehicles took to the streets of Harare followed by Robert Mugabe being placed under house arrest.

It was largely speculated that Robert Mugabe was trying to position his wife Grace to the next president of Zimbabwe after the 93 year Mugabe served another term.

There are staunch similarities between Robert Mugabe and Tun Mahathir.

Tun Mahathir was Malaysia’s Prime Minister for 22 years.  Although he stepped down from his post, he tried to maintain control over those who would take over as Prime Minister.  So there was Robert Mugabe with no pretence determined to stay in power and Tun Mahathir giving the facade of vacating the post, but still wanting to maintain control over those who took over.

Although Tun Mahathir would claim otherwise (or does he) that he is not trying to place his son Mukhriz in position to become Prime Minister; everyone knows that every political move he makes is with that end in mind.

When Robert Mugabe tried to position his wife Grace to become the next head of State his was too much for the people of Zimbabwe to stomach.  Many Malaysians also see Tun Mahathir’s attempts to elevate Mukhriz as a difficult pill that Dr. Mahathir wants Malaysian’s to swallow.  After all, Mukhriz other than sharing the Mahathir family name has cannot succeed in politics on his own; which is why he needs that ‘safe seat’ to contest.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/15/why-does-mukhriz-need-a-safe-seat-ansara/

Tun Mahathir has to realize that the era of passing the baton to one’s unqualified seed just for the sake of dynasty is over.   Malaysia is heading in a positive direction and the post of Prime Minister cannot to be a platform for OJT (On Job Training).

It is time for Tun Mahathir to give up his dream for his son as well as his own dream for wielding control over the government.

Robert Mugabe had to face the inevitable that his time has passed and no longer controls the government.  Mahathir now in his golden years must face the same reality that not only has his time has passed, but just like Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace will not become the president of Zimbabwe; Tun Mahathir’s son Mukhriz will not become Prime Minister of Malaysia!

Pakatan Harapan; The Politics of ‘What if’!

LAM

In DAP-led Pakatan Harapan politics, just like in life there are a lot of ‘What ifs’.

These are the various musings people make when they reflecting on the current state of events in their lives.

In life there are those who look at those around them who have achieved a degree of success and wonder: What if I had applied myself more; wouldn’t my situation be better than it is now?

What if I were born in another country, different ethnicity, taller or richer, wouldn’t I be… yada yada yada; you know how it goes.

Similarly now that Malaysia is gearing up for the 14th general election; there is probably a lot of musing, self reflection and kicking oneself in the pants taking place among those in Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition who have their ‘what ifs’.

When looking back over the strategy of allowing Tun Mahathir and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) join DAP-led Pakatan, Lim Kit Siang may be thinking at this crucial time; what if I had rebuffed the idea of allowing Tun Mahathir and PPBM join?

Lim Kit Siang’s may also be reflecting on how he could have capitalized on that fact that Tun Mahathir after leaving UMNO did not really having a base.  He (LKS) could have continued going after him over BMF forex and other contentious issues that are tied to Tun Mahathir.  Instead of doing that, Lim Kit Siang looks like (and rightly so) someone who placed price before his principles; and now he is paying the price!

Tun Mahathir who to this day does not look fully comfortable with Lim Kit Siang (no matter how they try to display their bromance publically) has his own list of what ifs.

Tun Mahathir could be thinking: what if I had not tried to bully Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib the same way I did Tun Dato’ Sri Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi;  Mukhriz and I would still be in UMNO and not outside it of it secretly wishing we were still in

Perhaps if Tun Mahathir had employed a different strategy he would not have had to swallow all of those things he has said about Lim Kit Siang, DAP and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim.  Well, in the case of the latter he did not swallow as he never did come out and say he does not commit sodomy.

Adding to Tun Mahathir’s what ifs:

What if Mukhriz were more ………,………,……..and ……..(fill in the blanks); wouldn’t he be able to achieve political success without riding on his father’s name.  And what if Mukhriz family name was not Mahathir would he even be in a political discussion at all not to mention a conversation about becoming a future Prime Minister?

Lastly, I am placing the snippets on Lim Guan Eng and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim together as they may soon be sharing a common mailing address.

Lim Guan Eng what if: What if I had not l thought Malays were not intelligent enough to figure out how I purchased my bungalow; and what if I had not criticised PAS on how they govern and handle floods in Kelantan.

Datuk Anwar Ibrahim what if: What if I had not continued to act upon those unnatural desires for males that landed me in jail to which Tun Mahathir knows all too well.

And what if I my semen could have magically disappeared from the annals of hiStory like those billions Mahathir talked about; my life would certainly be different today.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/11/08/anwar-was-hoping-for-a-bit-of-magic-from-the-court/

Realizing that the 14th general election is only a stone’s throw away, Pakatan Harapan finds itself immersed in thinking about the politics of ‘What if’!

 

 

 

Lim Kit Siang to Pakatan; Who’s Your Daddy!

daddylim

While DAP-led Pakatan may have their ‘top dog’ and running dogs, it is only their de facto leader Lim Kit Siang, who can say to the Pakatan coalition; who’s your daddy!

Those so called coalition partners may not like it, but they know when all is said and done; it is Lim Kit Siang who calls the plays.

On Lim Kit Siang’s part, he is shrewd enough to allow his Pakatan Harapan partners believe that they have a voice in matters of importance or that they have generated an idea or two.

In that respect Lim Kit Siang operates much like a daddy fox that allows his ‘kits’ (baby foxes) to play with his tail. The daddy fox wiggles the tail around so that little kits can chase and even on occasion catch it.  The young kits whelp with elation thinking that they are in control; but in reality it is the daddy fox who decides who is in control of the game.

So Lim Kit Siang makes a suggestion here and there or even makes a statement that he wants one of his happy kits (so called coalition partners) to pounce on as if it is his or her idea.  Lim Kit Siang is happy because his kits are happy and he gets the execution which he needs from them

That is why Lim Kit Siang wanted Datuk Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to become Prime Minister.  He knows that she would be the perfect Manchurian Candidate.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/18/with-wan-azizah-as-interim-pm-lim-kit-siang-would-have-the-perfect-manchurian-candidate/

All Lim Kit Siang would have to do is make a suggestion and then tie that suggestion to an ideal of how it would help her husband.  Then by the time there is a press conference; she (Wan Azizah) would believe that she came up with the thought.

But even with Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail removed from any serious conversation for becoming Prime Minister, Lim Kit Siang still knows that he is the daddy fox for the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan opposition; what he says goes and what he wants he gets.

So for Lim Kit Siang there was no problem allowing Tun Mahathir to believe that he is the ‘top dog’; which is laughable seeing how Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) is the smallest party in the coalition and its newest add on.

But there again, Lim Kit Siang knew just how to play Tun Mahathir.  All he needed to do is play to Mahathir’s ego.  He knew Tum Mahathir would be more cooperative if his ego were exercised and he became chairman.   So Lim Kit Siang allowed Tun Mahathir to believe he caught the tail (top post), but it was Lim Kit Siang who decided that he should get it.

Yes, there may have been RM1 Billion paid for the chairman’s post and as well as an easy seat for Mukhriz to contest in the 14th general election, but without Lim Kit Siang’s approval any deal would fall through.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-bribed-kit-siang-rm1-billion-to-become-pakatans-chairman/

That’s why Lim Kit Siang can say to Tun Mahathir and the rest of Pakatan; who’s your daddy!

 

G14 and Pakatan Harapan’s Serious Lack of Credibility!

clt

When G14 rolls around sometime next year, DAP-led Pakatan’s serious lack of credibility will be a factor with those still sitting on the fence.

DAP-led Pakatan Harapan’s serious lack of credibility is largely based on the proliferation of lies which have come from the so called coalition of partners.

The attacks DAP-led Pakatan launched against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak have all come to naught as they could not prove a single allegation against him.

When looking back at all of the fabrications, it seems obvious that Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and those making up the ANC (Anti Najib Campaign) sole purpose was to inflict as much damage as they could on Najib in the public’s mind so that he would throw in the towel.

During the early phase of those attacks, there were even calls from Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led Pakatan opposition for the Prime Minister to leave office while the whole matter into 1 Malaysian Development Berhad (1MDB) was investigated.  Of course it was only a pretext for Najib to leave office and to return if he was found to have not committed a crime.

But as mentioned before, this was a double standard that the DAP-led Pakatan opposition was employing as the never demanded or asked Penang Menteri Besar Lim Guan Eng to step away from office while his corruption case was under investigation.

So what credibility does the DAP-led Pakatan opposition have?

They even thought they could destroy two birds with one (1MDB) stone by using their foreign news portal (Sarawak Report) to try and tie PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang to money from the fund (1MDB) referenced above.

Malaysian learned that the backfired as Sarawak Report Editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown failed to provide any smoking gun evidence to prove the accusation she has made against Datuk Seri Haidi Awang; which means there is a good possibility that she is headed towards perjury.

Read The Thirds Force Article below.

https://www.thethirdforce.net/clare-brown-is-headed-towards-perjury/

So when G14 rolls around Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition will have a serious credibility problem with fence sitters as it appears that they will do and say anything to achieve their goal(s).

Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Kerauk said the following in FMT

“We need to be wary of such politicians because the people are the last thing on their minds. They make promises to buy votes and once in power they offer a dozen excuses as to why they cannot deliver on their promises.

Salleh said to size up people who are offering themselves to serve.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/11/12/salleh-size-up-people-offering-to-serve/

Therefore when G14 rolls around those who may still be on the fence will have something else to think over; and that is DAP-led Pakatan’s serious lack of credibility!

 

Anwar Was Hoping for a Bit of Magic From The Court!

AS

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was probably hoping for a bit of magic from the court.  The magic that he hoped for was that his conviction would be overturned.

Unfortunately for Anwar, the High Court struck out the lawsuit over allegations that Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah was paid RM9.5 million to be public prosecutor to make sure Anwar stayed locked up.

http://m.thestar.com.my/story.aspx?hl=Anwar-fails-to-secure-release-after-court-strikes-out-suit-over-Shafee-DPP-role&sec=news&id=%7B6312FAE4-7749-48F8-9936-C2EC61EA241E%7D

What the lawsuit amounted to was Anwar saying that in the high stacks card game; the deck of cards was stated against him; and as a result he should be released.

It is strange how Anwar and his lawyers want to make money being or not being paid the focal point for his release.  Just about any other man who was convicted of the crime of sodomy would have the main focus of their appeals etc be on the fact that they did not have unnatural relations with someone of the same gender.

But that does not seem to be that case with Anwar Ibrahim and his lawyers. Their whole release strategy seems to be in finding a legal loophole that will allow Anwar to by-pass the crime of raping a man which he has been imprisoned for.

If he can find some legal snafu he will say that the courts found him innocent of the crime of sodomy not that his lawyers found something in the law that he could use to as a get out of jail free card.

But not finding anything legally to date that will open the prison doors for him means that Anwar has stay locked up with the exception of his visits to the hospital.

It makes one ponder on why Anwar elected to not take the stand in his own defence during his trial?

One possible explanation is that during a mock trial cross examination session, Anwar’s lawyers realized that if Anwar took that stand, there would be no doubt about his guilt.

Another possible reason is that could be evidence against him that is being held for a rainy day.  Who knows; Tun Mahathir may even have some of that rainy day evidence.

All that does not seem to matter as Anwar failed in his bid to be released as the High Court struck out the lawsuit that Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdulla was paid RM9.5 million to make sure Anwar finished out his sentence behind bars; a sentence that the court has given him because his semen magically found its way into the backdoor of his political aid.

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2014/11/05/anwar-could-have-tested-own-dna-prosecution-questions-why-a-test-was-not-done-abroad-to-dispute-male/

Therefore it stands to reason that when Anwar woke up this morning, he hoped a bit of magic would help release him from prison in the same way that first magic trick (using his wand) landed him there!

 

 

Lim Guan Eng Criticised PAS for Floods in Kelantan; Now Look!

There is a saying that goes; water finds its own level as Lim Guan Eng is finding out.

Penang Menteri Besar Lim Guan Eng had criticised PAS for floods in Kelantan and now Lim Guan Eng is facing a deluge of water in the state he is administering.

Only recently Lim Guan Eng was faced with a tragic landslide

http://www.malaysia-today.net/how-will-guan-eng-deal-with-landslide/

Now Penang is facing flood water that is close to two (2) meters high.

It would be convenient for Lim Guan Eng to say that there was nothing his DAP-led administration could do about the rain as it is the result of the global warming!

It is strange how flooding is be said to be the result of global warming in Penang, but Lim Guan Eng would refer to the same type of flooding in Kelantan as a failure of the PAS government.

http://malaysiandigest.com/frontpage/29-4-tile/657249-pas-a-failed-party-running-a-failed-state-says-guan-eng.html

But the DAP-led Pakatan opposition seems to have a pattern in this regard; failure to see their own failures.

We only need to look no further back than to Tun Mahathir’s Bugis Pirate remark.  None of those in DAP-led Pakatan held or to this day is holding Tun Mahathir accountable for his remark.

From de facto leader all through the upper echelon; all of their lips have been glued together with respect to Tun Mahathir’s Bugis Pirate racist statement.

So today Datuk Salleh Said Keruak called on Lim Kit Siang to clarify his and DAP-led Pakatan’s stand on the bugis remark.

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/11/04/salleh-said-keruak-kit-siang-bugis/

There is even of question of whether Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Azmin Ali would censure Tun Mahathir over the slur.

The Third Force (TTF): The onus is now for Azmin to prove if he is loyal to The Sultan of Selangor. Back in 2014, PKR committed democratic thievery by fabricating evidence against the then Menteri Besar. When the Sultan intervened, top party leaders and even Lim Kit Siang insulted the palace by telling His Royal Highness to stay out. To this day, neither faction has apologised to the ruler. Will Azmin now do what is necessary to redeem his party’s dignity or is he going to sanction Mahathir’s slur by keeping mum?

https://www.thethirdforce.net/will-azmin-do-what-is-right-and-censure-mahathir-over-bugis-slur/

It has become quite apparent that throughout Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition that they are quick to point a finger and are blind to the other fingers pointing back at them.

And there is another one that goes

Bob

Looking at how DAP-led Pakatan refuses to look at its own faults; Lim Guan Eng’s fixation on looking for faults with PAS and UMNO and being oblivious to the waters rising around him is of little surprise. He even criticised PAS for floods in Kelantan; now look!

 

Pakatan Harapan’s Worst Nightmare is not on Elm Street; it’s GE14!

clt

While a nightmare for DAP-led Pakatan Harapan may not take place on ‘Elm Street’ like in the movie; it is real all the same.

In Wes Craven’s classic slasher film (“A nightmare on Elm Street”) several Midwestern teenagers fall prey to Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams.

The film is much like what Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led Pakatan opposition go through on a daily basis. They night only have nightmares at night about not being able to unseat Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office; but they have those same nightmares when they wake up every day.

In the iconic movie, the sins of the parents like bad karma has come back to haunt their children in much the same way Tun Mahathir, Clare Rewcastle-Brown and the rest of Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition is haunting them.

Just look at Tun Mahathir; his nightmare does not stop with the reality of his son Mukhriz never to become Prime Minister, but Tun Mahathir’s own possible deeds are proving to me nightmarish.

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/10/29/apologise-for-ops-lalang-dr-m-told/

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/dr-m-confirms-was-in-kl-on-day-of-memali-killings

Lim Kit Siang thought his dream was almost perfect; his son Lim Guan Eng is Penang Menteri Besar and Kit Siang was reported to have a deal in place to be deputy Prime Minister, Finance Minister or both while make a few extra RM along the way.

But that perfect dream has also turned into a nightmare for Lim Kit Siang as his son may soon be sharing up close and personal time with Anwar Ibrahim.

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/07/01/stop-delaying-and-let-corruption-trial-proceed-guan-eng-told/

Things are looking even worse for Lim Kit Siang; not only has the secret deal to make him deputy Prime Minister / Finance Minster or both has been exposed, but he may find it extremely problematic to spend those few extra RM he may have acquired along the way.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/07/lim-kit-siangs-future-expenditures-will-be-under-a-microscope/

And now we turn our attention to Clare Rewcastle-Brown:

Clare Rewcastle-Brown is one of those people who feel totally justified in trying to damage other’s characters (Najib and Hadi), but when she is exposed for her lies she makes absurd claims.

https://www.thethirdforce.net/clare-rewcastle-brown-upset-with-the-third-force-and-nst/

The beginning of her nightmare came when PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang sued her over her lies and she was unable to provide evidence to back up her lies.

https://www.thethirdforce.net/clare-brown-fails-to-furnish-evidence-to-london-court-over-bribery-claims/

As her own nightmare becomes worse; Clare Rewcastle-Brown has now thrown Ambiga under the bus.

https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2017/10/297198/sarawak-report-editor-names-ambiga-source-report

An article in Malay Mail Online is titled “Ambiga mum on being source of Sarawak Report claim against PAS”.  I would she is in shock as she (Ambiga) never thought that an offspring of former colonizer would create such a nightmare by betraying her trust.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/ambiga-mum-on-being-source-of-sarawak-report-claim-against-pas

Has the history and nature of former colonisers and in this case Clare Rewcastle-Brown taught Ambiga anything?

SR-deceive-2-The-Third-Force

However DAP-led Pakatan Harpan’s worst nightmare is not on Elm Street; it’s GE14!
