Pakatan’s PM Dilemma; Mahathir Who Will Screw Them in The End or Anwar; In Prison for Screwing in The End!

Tun M and Anwar

DAP-led Pakatan Harapan finds itself once again in a dilemma for its choice of Prime Minister if they were to win the 14th general election.

On one of the coin there is Tun Mahathir who has already forged a plan to screw over his new coalition mates if he is installed as Prime Minister. Then there is Datuk Anwar Ibrahim who according to his conviction is no stranger to the act of screwing those whom he fancies.

Tun Mahathir eagerness (although he tries to down play it) should be a red flag for DAP-led Pakatan.  Here is a man just a little shy of one hundred (100) years of age vying for the top job in Malaysia.

Even having done it before, the job is physically and mentally demanding for a person in their prime; how much more for someone who is past that period.

Maybe Tun Mahathir will take a page out of Datuk Wan Azizah Ishmael’s book of ‘How to be a tseat warming Prime Minister’

Perhaps Tun Mahathir’s real plan is just to get in the door and make the just right moves to get his son Mukhriz in place to become Prime Minister and at the same time surround Mukhriz with loyal minions who will assure that he stays remains in place.

Of course to hatch such a plan, Mahathir probably has to broker a deal with no other than de facto DAP-led Pakatan head Lim Kit Siang.

It is highly unlikely that Tun Mahathir can pull off the bait and switch without some form of agreement that with Lim Kit Siang.

Does part of such an agreement entail Lim Kit Siang being given the position as Finance Minister?  Perhaps it is that along with a side deal that his son (Lim Guan Eng) does not go to prison for taking advantage of his position as the present Menteri Besar of Penang.

Whichever the case, there is little doubt that the two men (Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang) have worked out some backroom deal.

The problem with doing a backroom deal with Mahathir is that Lim Kit Siang had better watch his back or he may find that he is being screwed in the end!

Which bring us to Datuk Anwar Ibrahim; he has been convicted and now sits in Sungai Buloh prison for screwing (sodomizing) his former aid in the end.

However even with that, there are those in DAP-led Pakatan who still cry for Anwar as their choice for PM.  There are some of them who somehow view the raping of a man by another man as less offensive than a man doing the same to a woman; failing to comprehend that rape is rape!

There are other Anwar Ibrahim supporters who are quick to proclaim that Anwar did not sodomize his aid; an act that Anwar has never denied and refused to get on the stand during his trail to refute.

Now Anwar’s lawyers are attempting to have his conviction dropped because they claim that layer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah was paid RM9.5 million to make sure Anwar was convicted.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/even-if-shafee-was-paid-rm9-5-million-it-would-still-be-sodomy/

It is interesting to note that Anwar and his lawyers are trying to dance around the main issue; did Anwar sodomize, have unnatural sex with, have a Peanut But-ter and KY Jelly sandwich with his aid.

Anwar is hoping that he is released so that he contest in first a by election, then in the 14th general election.

However, right now DAP-led Pakatan has a PM Dilemma; Mahathir who will screw them in the end or Anwar who is in Prison for Screwing in the end!

 

The Last Dance For Mahathir and Mukhriz!

mahathir-and-son

Long gone are the days of Mahathir touting The People’s Congress, Save Malaysia and 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).  Those clever gimmicks were used to fire shots over Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib Razak’s ship with the hope that one of those shots would cause Najib and thereby Barisan Nasional to sink.

However the Prime Minister and Barisan Nasional are still intact as Mahathir’s shots were as accurate as his calculation of those signatures he said he wanted to present to the Agong.

Nevertheless Tun Mahathir needed to continue to fire shots as he in addition to hoping to sink the Prime Minister, also wanted to show Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led Pakatan that he was truly out to get Prime Minister Najib and thus they had the same cause.

Tun Mahathir had to as he says, Burn the bridges he had with UMNO.  In that way he could work his way into in to the good graces of Lim Kit Siang and DAP-led Pakatan.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/05/23/ive-burned-bridges-with-umno-says-dr-mahathir/

Mahathir had to burn his UMNO bridges because he knew that there would never be any hope of Mukhriz ever becoming Prime Minister had he just stayed within the political party.

Therefore Tun Mahathir tried his best to scorch the political terrain behind him and find another vehicle from which he could try to get his son Mukhriz back in the political game.

Without having a political base, the first thing Tun Mahathir had to do was form a new political party.

While he expected the government to make him a martyr by delaying or even preventing him from forming a new political party, the opposite happened as his Parti Pribumi Malaysia (PPBM) was registered without a hitch; thereby removing a Mahathir’s martyr card.

Tun Mahathir’s next move was to then bromance Lim Kit Siang to the point that the former (enemy) would allow him to join DAP-led Pakatan.

There is speculation that there was / is some backroom deal involving Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir which the two (2) men hatched out of earshot of both PPBM and DAP-led Pakatan.

The plausibility of such a deal being true seemed real, as Lim Kit Siang while visually supporting Datuk Anwar Ibrahim was deftly silent when Tun Mahathir started offering himself as the DAP-led Pakatan opposition candidate.

LKS and Anwar placard

Even after Anwar’s rebuke of Tun Mahathir….

http://www.malaysia-today.net/anwar-throws-a-slap-in-mahathirs-face/

The latter continued to offer up his services as DAP-led Pakatan’s choice for Prime Minister

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/after-anwar-rebuke-dr-m-again-says-would-be-pakatan-pm

Recently, Lim Kit Siang’s DAP Muslim mouthpiece Datuk Zaid Ibrahim also chimed in to say that PPBM should lead Pakatan.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/dap-man-backs-ppbm-leading-pakatan-harapan

Two thoughts come to mind:

  1. His promoting PPBM is an effort to throw the scent off for those who believe there is a deal between Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir
  2. There really is a deal and Lim Kit Siang needs PPBM (Tun Mahathir) in place to make it come to fruition

Whichever the case, Tun Mahathir knows that it is GE14 or never for him to get Mukhriz in position to become Prime Minister.

That is why we are seeing a strong effort to force the bitter pill of Dr M down the DAP-led Pakatan coalition’s throats whether they like it or not!

 

 

Mahathir Causing Crack in a Coalition That is Already Fractured!

Tunjacking

Pakatan Harapan is probably second guessing its decision to allow Tun Mahathir and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysian (PPBM) join their coalition; as now they are caught between a rock and a hard place.

Life seemed to be so much easier for Pakatan Harapan when Tun Mahathir and PPBM were on the outside seemingly begging to join DAP-led Pakatan.  During those days, Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan believed that they were steering the ship even though the ship was not heads anywhere; still they were in control.

Tun Mahathir’s PPBM was the new political party on the scene and was in desperate need of a platform.

Being newly formed, Tun Mahathir seemed ready to acquiesce to any demand Lim Kit Siang’s Pakatan opposition put forth; He had his preverbal hat in hand ready to dance to any tune Pakatan Harapan played.

He acquiesced because he wanted to get in so that he could try to steer DAP-led Pakatan in the direction that best suites his plan; which really means the plans he has for his son Mukhriz.

Therefore Tun Mahathir threw pride to the side and got very lovey-dovey with Lim Kit Siang; his long time nemeses.  As part of his bonding process, Tun Mahathir even gushed about how the DAP sang negaraku and spoke Bahasa Malaysia at their convention.

All of Tun Mahathir’s praises heaped on the DAP only shows that like a chameleon, he can change when it is convenient for him to do so.

Now that Tun Mahathir is officially part of the DAP-led coalition, he is is doing or saying what he dared not say when he was on the outside; and that is he wants to be Prime Minister again.  (here)

 

What is now proving to be quite embarrassing for DAP-led Pakatan is Tun Mahathir seizing control.  He is doing so  because he knows that Lim Kit Siang’s DAP opposition does not have any one else to put forward as their candidate.

Mahathir has pushed himself to the forefront because he wants to make sure that Mukhriz has a place at the table in highly unlikely event that things turn the opposition’s way during the next election.

Tun Mahathir also knows that he cannot rely on Mukhriz to step up and put himself in an electable position; which is why he volunteered himself to be Pakatan’s PM choice.

However when Mahathir volunteered his services, he caused a crack in a coalition which was already fractured; a scenario they can ill afford with 14th general election swiftly approaching!

Mahathir is Wrong; The World is Not Lamenting Over Malaysia!

Tun 1MDB

Despite what Mahathir may fantasize, people around the world are not sitting around in the homes, coffee houses and offices discussing the various happenings which are taking place in Malaysia.

Well, perhaps some of those involved in foreign (USA/RM) exchange may have some interest; just like in the days of BMF.

bank-mahathir

If Tun Mahathir has forgotten about that glorious time, he need but have Lim Kit Siang remind him over a cup of teh tarik.

Other than that Tun Mahathir is wrong.  The world does not care about what takes place outside of their area of concern; people are busy focusing on what concerns them.

Those who have heard something about 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), have done so because those who make up the Anti Najib Campaign (ANC) are hell bent on the removal of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office by hook or crook; even t the point of disparaging Malaysia.

They are those ones who have fed fabricated stories to both the local and foreign press in hopes of getting people in other nations talking about Malaysia.

Tun Mahathir wants to shame Malaysians into believing that the world has lost respect for Malaysia.  The truth may be closer to those who had respect for Tun Mahathir have lost that respect as a result of his doing whatever he can to secure his son Mukhriz the top spot in Malaysian politics.

Tun Mahathir believes that this (more than likely) last gasp to use 1MDB will convince Malaysians that the world is collectively throwing ashes on their heads as they lament over what is to become of Malaysia and its future.

Conversely, we may soon have Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang who as the ones tossing ash over their heads and lamenting over their own agendas.

Mahathir’s own agendas which have been written about include:

  • The removal of the Prime Minister Najib Razak
  • Positioning his son Mukhriz to become Prime Minister.

When it comes to Lim Kit Siang it appears that he is not too concerned (if he ever was) about becoming deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister; it is about influencing those who that he through his DAP-led opposition can place in Putrajaya.

But that is not all…

In a recent article from “The Third Force” Lim Kit Siang has an even more sinister agenda that he is attempting to bring about.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/lim-kit-siang-lee-kuan-yew-and-the-secret-west-coast-agenda/

From the article, it is apparent that Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang have conflicting interest while at the same time attempting to swim in the same direction; now, Malaysians can see beyond their deceit and lies.

So again, Tun Mahathir assertion that the world is losing respect for Malaysia is emphatically wrong.   What is more correct is Malaysians are losing respect for Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the ANC for trying to portray Malaysia as corrupt to the world and for seeking their own interest ahead of that of the people’s!

The Kit Siang Mahathir ‘Bromance’ Leaves Opposition in a Quandary!

lim-and-mahathir

 

In the buildup to the upcoming 14th general election, Lim Kit Siang’s  DAP-led opposition finds itself in a quandary.

To the DAP-led opposition faithful, the big election was supposed to be a walk in the park. They believed that they had the right ammunition (1MDB) to bring down Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and all they need do is bide their time until what they believed to be the soon to be ex-government announced when the election would take place.

Although DAP-led opposition believed that the election was theirs to be had, they still wanted to hedge their bets.  They thought that in coercing the losers of the Islamic party (PAS) away and having them form their own party (Amanah) that would pull in the Malay/Muslim vote.

To aid in the process of wooing Malays, the DAP led opposition opened their arms to disgruntled UMNO casts offs, former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, former Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir as well as the latter’s father, Tun Mahathir who had also been working to unseat Prime Minister Najib Razak in order to clear the path for his son Mukhriz Mahathir to become Prime Minister.

Unfortunately for the DAP-led opposition, what started out as a walk in the park, turned out to be a walk in ‘Jurassic Park’ as Prime Minister Najib Razak was as clever and shrewd and as the raptors depicted in the blockbuster movie.

Najib was well aware of the overt and covert efforts of those comprising the Anti Najib Campaign (ANC) as well as those like Muhyiddin who feigned loyalty, but like Cesar’s Brutus was waiting for an opportunity to politically stab his leader in the back.

However before the former deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin could bring forth his plan or get used to the idea of becoming Prime Minister, he was sacked and kicked out the party.

That action (Muhyiddin’s sacking) within itself shook the foundation of the conspirator’s plot to oust Prime Minister Najib Razak as they (DAP-led opposition) hoped to have both Muhyiddin Yassin and Mukhriz Mahathir within UMNO to stir up chaos while Tun Mahathir threw unsubstantiated accusations at the Prime Minister from the outside.

With both Muhyiddin and Mukhriz on the outside the DAP-led opposition lost what they had to perceive as an advantage; showing discontent with the Najib from UMNO and the opposition.

Another blow to the DAP-led opposition’s plan to unseat the Prime Minister came about when PAS did not join in the opposition’s efforts to call for a vote of no confidence against the Prime Minister as well as their non participation in Bersih (4 and 5).

The obvious lack of a strong Malay presence at those street rallies only proved why DAP is so desperate to dress their party with Malays.

Fortunately, Malays see through the DAP’s façade of friendship and are not allowing the DAP to use them as pawns; thus leaving the DAP with a major problem.

Today with no significant Malay support and Putrajaya becoming a fading dream, the DAP-led opposition finds itself in a quandary; wondering if the bromance between Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir is worth the political price they are now paying!

 

 

Doctor Mahathir Turned Out To Be Bad Medicine!

mahathir-dap-1

Tun doctor Mahathir has become like one of those snake oil salesman in the tales of the old west who claimed to have a cure for whatever ailed you.

Unfortunately, for those who placed their hope in his political concoction, they ended up  in worse shape than they were before he back onto the political scene.

Tun doctor Mahathir called out to whoever was in ear shop, telling them that Malaysia was sick and that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was the central cause of Malaysia’s illness.

He pointed to Malaysia’s economy as proof that it was somehow the Prime Minister’s fault that things were slow.  Of course what he did not say was that what was taking place in Malaysia was part of the ebb and flow of what was happening in economies around the world.

Mahathir wanted Malaysians to use a myopic perspective (only looking at Malaysia) when looking at what was taking place vis-à-vis the economy and not consider the bigger picture.

Tun doctor Mahathir said that the government’s plan to start the GST and BR1M would only exacerbate the problem as the former would only bring hardship on both business and individuals and the latter was a form of corruption.

Doctor Mahathir also declared that 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was a sick financial fund; making the diagnosis despite the fact that he had not been privy to exam it.

Like any snake oil salesman, the next phase saw doctor Mahathir offering his political elixir as a cure for Malaysia.  However, not many would buy into the claims of the cure as even the doctor seemed confused at times.  He would claim various numbers which were not there U-Turn or completely back track on positions that he has held (dislike for Lim Kit Siang and the DAP) for years.

There was even a point when the doctor went blank when asked who he would prefer to see as Prime Minister and deputy Prime Minister; when all of Malaysian new the response.

Along the way doctor Mahathir teamed up with Lim Kit Siang; another snake oil salesman in his own right.

Kit Siang duped himself into believing that what doctor Mahathir was peddling was the real thing and ending up swallowing it as well.  Mahathir’s elixir sent Lim Kit Siang into a dream like state where he believe that doctor would have him (Kit Siang) as Mukhriz’ deputy Prime Minister with Finance Minister and a get out of jail free card for Lim Guan Eng thrown in for good measure.

However, when Lim Kit Siang awakened from his voyage to Neverland, he realized that he has not chance of becoming deputy Prime Minister, Guan Eng is probably going to prison

Maybe all of this adds to why Lim Kit Siang (Burst Into Tears) today.

He finally realizes that doctor Mahathir turned out to be really bad medicine!

 

Mahathir’s ‘Let Bygones’ Tour; Another Desperate Attempt to Make Mukhriz Prime Minister!

mahathir-and-son

Tun Mahathir addressing two hundred (200) “reformasi” supporters pleaded with them to let bygones be bygones. (here)

Mahathir wants them to move on from the past and rally around his causes;

Stated

  1. ‘To remove Barisan Nasional from the government’

Unstated

  1. ‘To have his son Mukhriz positioned to become Prime Minister of Malaysia’

Mahathir in his address even goes on to say that taking any (legal) action against him is okay after he gets what amounts to what he wants; causes one (1) and two (2) above.

It seems that the 91 year old former Prime Minister does not want any scrutiny over his past until he can see his seed (Mukhriz) in office; then it would not matter as dear old dad would get an executive pardon for past wrongs or at the very least; a slap on the wrist.

Mahathir’s addressing the ‘reformasi’ group is just his latest stopover along the path of his politically expedient apology tour.  With the 14th general election swiftly approaching, Tun Mahathir knows very well that time is racing toward him like a speedy train and there is nothing he can do to slow the inevitable.

His uncomfortable alliance with Lim Kit Siang is turning out to be everything many imagined it would be; Toxic 

There was even a brief period where Tun Mahathir tried to let Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBN) president former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin come to the forefront.  However the weight of his (Muhyiddin) personal baggage quickly pulled the party president back out of the media spotlight and into the shadows.

Of course Muhyiddin may also be having second thoughts about trusting Tun Mahathir as news surfaced of a secret pact between Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang.  The pact would have the former’s son (Mukhriz Mahathir) slated as Prime Minister and the latter (Lim Kit Siang) as deputy Prime Minister / Finance Minister if the DAP-led opposition were to win the next general election.

If the deal Mahathir and Kit Siang is true (from all indications it is) then that would leave Muhyiddin without a seat; which may not be that bad considering what Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and Mukhriz Mahathir are possibly up to  ‘behind’ his back.

Some speculate that Muhyiddin realizing that he is being political sodomized as a reason why he not too long ago said some positive things about the government’s success in steering the country (here)

Mahathir may understand that Muhyiddin is starting to see how he does not fit into his (Mahathir) grand scheme of things; prompting Mahathir to start his let bygones be bygones tour.

On this his latest tour, Tun Mahathir wants those whom he may have hurt in some way to let it go even though the pain of the hurt is still there.

It seems that the doctor does not care about the victim’s pain only about what he hopes to gain from his latest tour.

However, just as with his earlier apology and bury the hatchet tours; the let bygones be bygones tour is all about paving the way for Mukhriz to become Prime Minister and not about soothing any hurt from the past!
