The DAP’s Latest Acquisition (Zaid Ibrahim) Fails Just Like His Predecessors!

lks-zaid-ibrahim

Zaid Ibrahim joining the DAP just before the PAS Himpunan 355 rally was supposed to be an attracting force for the DAP led opposition to show Malays that Lim Kit Siang and the DAP were their friends.

Zaid Ibrahim who is just the latest DAP acquisition spoke at the “Himpunan Rakyat Tolak Usul Hadi” counter rally. It seems that his doing so was supposed to legitimize the claim that Act 355 was not good for Muslims and non Muslims alike.  Unfortunately, for Lim Kit Siang and the DAP, having Zaid as part of the DAP equation was as effective as having Amanah, Tun Mahathir and the other despots who were acquired and loosely inserted into the DAP-led opposition pact.

As seen with Amanah and Tun Mahathir, Zaid Ibrahim’s presence and message were and are not strong enough to pull in any significant crowd numbers.  In other words whatever hash-tag Lim Kit Siang and the DAP come up with, it fails to resonate with their target audience; the Malays.

In fact, given the lack of crowd numbers at the Act 355 counter rally, the DAP message (and many believe that it was their message), did not find a footing within the Chinese community as well.

Perhaps non Muslims are realizing that Hadi Awang’s Act 355 does not affect their lives in the way the purveyors of doom try to spin it .

Then again, with so many rallies (‘Save Malay’, ‘The People’s Congress’ and Bersih), people are either burnt out on rallies or have wised up to the various agenda’s that are at work within the DAP-led opposition.

Whichever the case, Lim Kit Siang and the DAP cannot make a legitimate case for why so few showed up to the counter rally; conversely according to PAS, 300,000 came out to support Act 355.

Of course Lim Kit Siang and the DAP will say that they were no were near the rally, but one does not have to be there when their proxy is there.

One of the outcomes of having a Muslim proxy to do the dirty work is that it focuses attention away from you and focuses attention on the one who is the ‘Muslim face’ (Zaid Ibrahim) of what you want to accomplish.

However, just propping a Muslim up as a showpiece means little, if the one being showcased is seen as just another hired gun to further an agenda that benefits a select few.

Lim Kit Siang and the DAP-led opposition have continuously pinned their hopes on the likes of Mat Sabu (Amanah), Tun Mahathir (PPBM) and now Zaid Ibrahim all in an effort to woo the Malays and ultimately their vote.

However, Zaid Ibrahim’s failure to attract Muslims only follows the failures of those listed above who produced nothing for the DAP leading up to the 14th general election.

There is a good chance that if Lim Kit Siang did not believe that his DAP-led opposition was defeated before, the light of this reality is certainly starting to illuminate around him now.

 

A Lim Dynasty May End Before It Starts!

Lims

In the darkest recesses of the minds of both Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng they may have entertained that thought that they could be Malaysia’s version of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew and Lee Hsien Loong.

Of course, Kit Siang and Guan Eng would never admit to such, but the thought had most certainly been there just as Tun Mahathir has envisioned himself and his son Mukhriz Mahathir in the same capacity.

The problem that both Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan have is that they are seen as opportunist; looking to see what they can gain personally.

Perhaps this was the same situation in Singapore, but even that were the case at least they (Lee Kuan Yew and Lee Hsien Loong knew how to hide it.

The Lims recent actions or lack thereof makes one wonder if they believe that people will not notice their duplicity or that they are so far up in their ivory tower that they think that their actions are beyond question.

What else would cause Lim Guan Eng to believe that he could acquire that property and a ridiculously low price?  As Menteri Besar did he really think that no one would make an inquiry or did he think that he could talk his way out of any problems he would encounter as a result of that purchase?

And what about his (Guan Eng) call for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to step down, but yet he (Guan Eng) refuses to step down even though the evidence seems to indicate that he has used his office and position as Penang Menteri Besar for personal gain.

We can also mention his (Lim Guan Eng) calling the four (4) elected DAP members who recently quit the party traitors, but yet did not say the same about those who quit PAS and formed Amanah or Tun Mahathir, former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Mukhriz. (here)

Lim Guan Eng’s father Lim Kit Siang is no different.  For years Kit Siang has talked about the evils of Tun Mahathir and the BFM scandal which is related to Mahathir’s time in office.  Yet now because of some possible backroom dealings, Lim has apparently bartered away his principles for as they say; 30 pieces of silver.

Even with the chance to join the growing chorus to ask for questions on BMF Lim Kit Siang remains quiet.  Some are speculating that the price for silence is the deputy Prime Minister post, if the DAP-led opposition were to win as well as a get out of jail free card for Lim Gun Eng, if he were to be a residence in ‘Sungai Buloh’ or a similar facility.

There have already been rumblings of discontent within the DAP camp over the Lims trying to create their own dynasty.  Now with Lim Kit Siang’s embrace of Tun Mahathir and seemingly using the party (DAP) for personal gain, the kettle of discontent has started to boil over. Adding to this discontent is Lim Guan Eng seemingly following in his father’s footsteps by using the trappings of office for personal gain.

So perhaps the four recent departures are just the tip of the iceberg as there DAP leadership may be growing weary of both Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng.  If so, the Lim dynasty may see the end before it starts!

Lim Kit Siang Gambled Big On Mahathir And Lost!

lim-and-mahathir

There was a time in the political world of Lim Kit Siang when things (however warped) made sense;  Mahathir was the sworn enemy and BMF was the political ax that would Mahathir on his knees.

Since those days events have turned for Lim Kit Siang and none of those turns are for the better.

To start, Lim Kit Siang jumped on the Mahathir band wagon to take part in ‘Save Malay’ and the ‘People’s Congress’; as it turned out neither of those two events stirred the imagination of the people.

Then Mahathir was to be used as the great Malay magnet for the three (3) elections which have taken place in 2016.  However, not only was Mahathir not the magnet that Kit Siang hoped, but Mahathir may have been responsible for fence sitters to vote against the negative Pakatan Rakyat political machinery.

Next Mahathir was dispatched on his kiss and make up too which also took him to the court house with for a prearranged meet with jailed former Pakatan Harapan de facto leader Datuk Anwar Ibrahim.

Kit Siang no doubt thought that the meet between Mahathir and Anwar would be the catalyst that would create support for Pakatan Harapan among the Malays.  But there were no sparks of possibility or joyous tears beyond those of their wives.

The event came and went and that was it.  There was more excitement over a football match than what was generated when Mahathir and Anwar met during both their first and most recent encounter.

It was probably obvious to many in the Pakatan Harapan hierarchies that Kit Siang’s tie up with Mahathir was doing more harm than good.  However, it seems like Kit Siang is like a gambler who is holding on to a losing hand hoping that things will turn in his favor.  So instead of folding, he continues to ante up.  Perhaps the prospects of a deputy Prime Minister / Finance Minister Posts have blinded Kit Siang to the certain political realities.

Whatever the case, this unsavory union has not only prompted the usually quiet Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail to give an opinion on DAP-led Pakatan Harapan’s connection with Tun Mahathir, but has also prompted four (4) DAP Malacca elected members to quit the party.

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/02/12/wee-dap-resignations-due-to-long-time-internal-split/

Lim Kit Siang should heed the words of Kenny Roger’s song “The Gambler”

You got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away, know when to run….

And with Kit Siang’s continued connection with Mahathir, there may soon be others in the DAP who decide it’s time to walk away!

Mahathir as Opposition Leader Is Really About Lim Kit Siang!

images (6)

There has been growing speculation that Lim Kit Siang has come out of the closet to fulfill his dream to be the head of the opposition.  It seemed that whenever a statement came out of the DAP-led opposition camp, Kit Siang was the one who was making it.

That has not always bee the case.  It was not too long ago that it was Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali who was the one who trying to position himself as the rightful heir to the opposition.  However, events like the letter and making the blunder of verbally standing with Tun Mahathir before he made yet another U-Turn and said that BR1M is good seemed to cause Azmin Ali to shy away from the spotlight and concentrate on giving out aid vouchers with his photo on them.

With Azmin having scurried back to the shadow, it would have seemed that Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail would be the voice and face of the opposition.  However,  staying true to form, she remained as effective as a leader as one of her Japanese fans on a hot Malaysian day; zero!

Therefore with Azmin acting like a puppy with its tail between its legs, Wan Azizah plying for a bit role in a Japanese drama and Lim Guan Eng’s voice being virtually silenced due to his legal trouble; Lim Kit Siang seized the opportunity to be the champion for the Chinese and a protective father for the Malays.

Kit Siang has gotten so caught up in his role as the self proclaimed de facto opposition leader that he actually believed that he was their leader.

It may have been Datuk Salleh Keruack’s post questioning Lim Kit Siang if he were the head of the opposition as well as similar posts which caused Kit Siang to snap out of his dream.  The dream in which he was actually selected as the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan de facto leader.

Having been so exposed, Lim Kit Siang needed someone else to be proclaimed as the de facto opposition leader; and the only one who could fit that bill and be plausible is who else; Tun Mahathir.

As such we should expect to hear more voices hint at and allude to Mahathir being in some form or fashion the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan leader.

Even if Mahathir is not heralded as such (de facto leader) you will see more of him and others making media statements and possibly a much quieter Kit Siang.

We can also expect that from now until the 14th general election Kit Siang will “Tune’ down his role as the protector for the Malays as he knows that this is demeaning to the Malays.  To counteract this Lim Kit Siang will leave it to others like Amanah, Tun Mahathir or other window dressers they (DAP) have to speak on issues like RUU355 which involve Muslims.

In mentioning Tun Mahathir, the timing of his being mentioned as the de facto opposition leader is both suspect and laughable.  In reality it seems that the strategy to proclaim Mahathir as the de facto opposition leader is not so much about him, but more about moving the light off of Lim Kit Siang!

Has Lim Kit Siang Lost The Plot?

lim-mukriz

Lim Kit Siang and all the others like Tun Mahathir who conspired to remove Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office seemed to have lost the plot of their movie.

The plot laid out was to first claim that there were irregularities with 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). There plan was to stoke interest among the rakyat much like a movie trailer is to tease the public to what is to come.

Next the plan was to ask questions about who had responsibility.  Then the plan was to accuse that person or in this case Prime Minister Najib Razak of being directly responsible for causing RM42 billion to not only vanish (according to Tun Mahathir) into thin air, but to then partially reappear into the Prime Minister’s local person banking account.

The whole disappearance trick was supposed to be the hook that would cause the rakyat to buy popcorn and watch in anticipation to what was to take place in the upcoming scenes.

The plot took a Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) twist when the Pubic Account’s Committee (PAC) (which DAP Member of Parliament Tony Pua ‘played a role’) carried out their forensic work.

It was obvious during the investigative process that while some served on the PAC to find out the truth others like Tony Pua was there to look for the thinnest of evidence that would link Prime Minister Najib Razak to any misappropriation of 1MDB funds’.  This was apparent in that even while the process was ongoing, he (Tony Pua) wanted to engage in a debate over the issue.

However, as the things turned out, ‘the PAC including Tony Pua did not find any evidence of the Prime Minister’s involvement in the misappropriation 1MDB funds.

That finding is especially poignant as Lim Kit Siang has recently suggested that Tony Pua should be among other issues an accounting tutor to Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak.

In Salleh’s response, the Communication and Multimedia Minister says that it is Lim Kit Siang who should change his accounting tutor.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/02/08/i-dont-need-tony-pua-to-tutor-me-salleh-tells-kit-siang/

With that being said, let’s return to Lim Kit Siang’s lost plot.

Since the PAC exonerated the Prime Minister of any wrong doing and the issue of 1MBD not catching the imagination of the rakyat the DAP-led opposition had to try other means to dress of the plot to remove the Prime Minister.

They tried to do this by convincing a few disgruntled members of PAS that the grass was ‘greener’ (monetarily???) on the other side.  Then the opposition out of necessity reluctantly opened their doors to Tun Mahathir, Mukhriz Mahathir and Muhyiddin Yassin.

On the surface, the plot was to tangle Muhyiddin in front of the public as an appetizer and with Mukhriz to come as the entrée a few years later.  For Mahathir’s part, he was to serve as a condiment to the first two (2) dishes.

That was the plot on the surface; apparently behind the scenes Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir were writing another script.

That script would have Mukhriz as Prime Minister, Lim Kit Siang as deputy Prime Minister and Muhyiddin Yassin looking for more K-Y Jelly!

Recently the sub plot has hit a snag as Lim Kit Siang is has to chose to either stick with Tun Mahathir and close both eyes to the latter’s administrations involvement to the BMF scandal or to be as vocal on BMF as he has been in the past and give up any dream (and that’s all it is) of becoming deputy Prime Minister.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/does-kit-siang-still-want-his-rci/

So to answer the question: Has Lim Kit Siang lost the plot? Emphatically yes; unless he is making a disaster movie in which he also plays a major role!

 

Pribumi; Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places!

images (6)

One only needs to examine Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia or Pribumi since their beginning to come away with the feeling that they have no real purpose or direction.

Yes you may from time to time hear from Pribumi head honcho Tun Mahathir about how they are in it to win it; it meaning the 14th general election.  However, Tun Mahathir’s false bravado does not reflect what is coming out of the Pribumi camp; which is zilch, zero, nada!

The only act (and it was just that) to date which the ‘Three M’ were part of was walking the streets during Bersih 5 and even that did not seem to have a point to it.

3m-bershih-5

Perhaps they really did hope on some level that the crowds would cry out for their leadership.  Unfortunately for them that did not happen; they were just three politically lost people wearing yellow T-shirts looking for love in all the wrong places.

Looking for love in all the wrong places does not seem surprising giving Pribumi President Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s alleged amorous affair with someone who shared another man’s home and bed.

anina-muhyiddin
Looking For Love Something!

Following Muhyiddin’s love lead, Anina who is the yes she was, no she wasn’t Pribumi women wing chief could not control her fingers as they had her sexting to fill up the empty hours at camp Pribumi as there was and is nothing else going on there.

Muhyiddin and Anina were not the only ones in party Pribumi whose heart yearned for another.  Tun Mahathir in his own way after many years of holding back his feelings to the contrary crawled into the political bed with Lim Kit Siang.

Mahathir’s remarks after his last minute invite to the DAP assembly sounded to some like he a school boy in love the way he gushed on about how the DAP used Bahasa Malaysia and sang Negaraku in their meetings.

lim-and-mahathir

It would have sounded more credible had Mahathir said that his earlier reports when he was at the head of government were correct and the DAP in fact knew the words to Nagaraku.  But then what to expect, love does have a way of making one forget and Mahathir has been forgetting a lot as of late like BR1M is Good and BMF is Bad.

Right now it is difficult to predict, but perhaps Mahathir will come full circle and admit what many already know; the government following the leadership of Prime Minister Najib Razak is doing a good for Malaysia!

The DAP Roundtable Invite; A Masked Attempt to Debate the Prime Minister!

lim

Let’s see, first the Gelang Patah MP Lim Kit Siang wanted to debate Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and now he wants the Prime Minister to join the all but forgotten ‘Save Malaysia’ round table. (here)

It is interesting when discussing this with a few people that the prevailing thought is that Kit Siang’s invitation is just another way to try and set up the Prime Minister.

Of course the idea is to put surgery frosting on the round table to make it appear to be other than what it is really designed for; to try and embarrass the Prime Minister.

There is very little or no doubt that the overall plan is a not too well concealed trap where:

One: The Prime Minister and those in his Cabinet do not attend

Two: The Prime and those in his Cabinet do show up

In scenario number one (1) where the Prime Minister does not attend; Lim Kit Siang and the DAP-led opposition will cry out that the Prime Minister must have something to hide and that is why he was a no show.  However for Lim Kit Siang is to harp on the Najib’s non-attendance means that the underlying plan was to make the round table about Prime Minister Najib and his administration and not some bipartisan effort to work against corruption.

In scenario number two (2) where the Prime Minister does attend, the plan is to bring up an issue like 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Even though that topic has long since fizzled, Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir refuse to let it go as that dead horse topic (1MDB) is the only ammo they have in their war arsenal.

Nevertheless, Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir who would more than likely make another just so happen appearance. (here)

Remember Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak saying that Lim Kit Siang is not on the same level as Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak and thereby does not deserve to debate with him? (here)

Those words forced Lim Kit Siang to look for another avenue in which he could try to debate the Prime Minister while trying not to look like he is the head of (which he is) Pakatan Rakyat.

Lim Kit Siang says that the round table offers the Prime Minister a “fresh start”.

A fresh start from what; as far as many can determine Prime Minister Najib Razak is doing a good job.

In reality, Kit Siang’s sugar laced invite to Najib is no different than the ‘Olive Branch’ that he claimed to extend to PAS President Hadi Awang and then a couple of days later contemplated taking legal action against him.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/01/22/kit-siang-extends-olive-branch-to-hadi/

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/01/28/kit-siang-plans-to-sue-hadi/

Another outcome that would Lim Kit Siang would like to take place is for the Prime Minister to show up and then leave after being ambushed.  Both Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir would then try and use that outcome as a desperate attempt to save their fledgling hope for the 14th general election.

Perhaps the round table could be used to discuss the BMF scandal or how the Penang Chief Minister (Lim Guan Eng) could purchase property way below market value!
