Nothing to Hide 2.0: Mahathir’s Skeletons Coming Home to Roost!

hide 2

Tun Mahathir did not expect a skeleton from his past to show up at ‘Nothing to Hide 2.0; he was probably hoping to show DAP-led Pakatan why he is top dog.  In addition, he also wanted to prove that he could draw particularly Malays to an even in much the same way he did with George W. Bush and Tony Blair fake war crimes tribunals.

However, unlike the mock ‘War Crimes Tribunal’, the Nothing to Hide 2.0 event turned chaotic following a question on the Memali tragedy.   Perhaps in the future the event will be known as ‘Looking for Some Where to Hide’; following Tun Mahathir and his entourage’s hasty exit from the venue.

Of course there are those DAP-led Pakatan supporters who are quick to say that UMNO plants were responsible for the mealy which had taken place.

Those individuals are so blinded by their dislike for the government that they would never admit the errors the political party or the leaders they support have committed.

Take the case against Penang Menteri Besar Lim Guan Eng as an example.  In this case there is document evidence of a crime having been perpetrated and yet Pakatan Harapan blinded loyalists do not see it as anything but a government plot to silence dissension.

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

In another example, some of these same blinded individuals also see the Registry of Societies (ROS) telling Lim Kit Siang’s DAP that the vote held in 2012 was illegal as still another government conspiracy to weaken Pakatan Harapan.

Therefore, it is of little surprise that DAP-led Pakatan supporters would see the chaos at the Nothing to Hide 2.0 event as still another government plot.  The Pakatan Harapan choir will only see anything which is damaging to DAP-led Pakatan as part of a government conspiracy.

Would it now be out of the ordinary to expect some Pakatoons (to borrow RPK’s term) to say that PPBM Logistics and Security Chief Wan Mohammad Ashraf Nasjaruddin is secretly working with and for UMNO after his assertion that he and not Tun Mahathir was the target?

If Pribumi is divided from within (evidence from MTH 2.0 chaos), in much the same way PKR is divided and DAP is divided; then what is Pribumi’s contribution to a political coalition that is in desperate need of help?

Nothing

As it stands, outside of the name of Tun Mahathir, Pribumi has nothing to sustain itself as a political entity nor does it have anything of real value to Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition.

Tun Mahathir and Pribumi’s sole task was to entice Malays to join their failing political cause and ‘Nothing to Hide 2.0’ was supposed to be their showcase to prove that they can draw Malays.

However as it stands, the only thing Tun Mahathir and ‘Nothing to Hide 2.0 drew was the ire of those in attendance; as the skeletons from Mahathir’s past are coming home to roost!

Impossible for Mahathir and Pakatan to Drop 1MDB Without Looking Foolish!

TunandPH

Have you ever known a man who will continue to drive down the wrong road knowing that it is wrong instead of admitting the mistake and asking for directions?

This is pretty much what Tun Mahathir and Pakatan Harapan have done with respect to the issue of 1Malaysia Development Berhad or 1MDB.  If they have not known from the onset of their crusade to use 1MDB against the Prime Minister was bogus, they certainly knew early that there was no proof.

The DAP’s very own Tony Pua who was part of the Parliament Accounts Committee found no wrong doing on the part of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.  So one has to wonder what is with the latest plea from Pakatan Harapan for an investigative look into 1MDB.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/08/08/ph-to-macc-probe-1mdb-dont-forget-politicians-come-and-go/

Is Tony Pua now saying the he and the other members of the PAC were too incompetent to investigate the matter?  If so why was he willing to undertake the process?

If in fact the PAC investigative process was not flawed then what has subsequently taken place since then is a desperate attempt to find some legal body that will say that Prime Minister Najib is guilty of something.

Therefore we first saw the PAC investigation: No blamed assigned to the Prime Minister

Then there was the USA Department of Justice (DoJ) with their questionable motives: Again, no name specified.  I guess innocence until proven guilty still applies to some degree there.

After Tun Mahathir’s hope in DoJ quickly flamed out, he had his emissaries turn their attention to the House of Commons:  But that hope fizzled out faster than the hope that he place in the DoJ; even Pakatan’s UK Sarawak Reports mouth piece Clare Rewcastle-Brown was unsuccessful to get a UK court to parrot her belief that Malaysia’s government and leaders are corrupt

http://www.malaysia-today.net/uk-court-rules-no-evidence-that-najib-and-malaysian-judiciary-are-corrupt/

Now, out of pure desperation Pakatan Harapan is trying to put pressure on Malaysia’s Anit Corruption Commission (MACC).

Pakatan’s strategy will be something like the following: If the MACC investigates and finds nothing in the same way PAC found nothing they (PH) will say that the MACC is in collusion with the government to cover up the truth.

Even if the MACC starts a thorough and length investigative process, Pakatan Harapan will say that they (MACC) are dragging it out until after GE14.  Conversely, if the MACC investigates quickly, Lim Kit Siang and Pakatan will say that it was no thorough.

So no matter what the MACC does, it’s damned if they do and damned if they don’t because the only thing that will satisfy Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of PH is a resounding assignment of guilt placed at the feet of Najib Razak; nothing else fits into their agenda to deceive the Malay’s.

That is why Pakatan Harapan’s Lim Guan Eng is upset that Arul Kanda Kandasamy briefed PAS on 1MDB.  Lim Guan Eng knows that if PAS is satisfied with the explanation then the DAP will not be able to use 1MDB as a weapon to have Malays going against Malays.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/08/08/1mdbs-arul-should-be-briefing-tony-pua-not-pas-says-guan-eng/

The problem for Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of Pakatan Harapan is that they know they cannot win without a sizable Malay backing.  They also know that it is impossible for them to drop the one issue (1MDB) that they were hoping to use to capture Malays without looking even more foolish than they do now!

 

Mahathir Moves from Nothing to Hide to Nothing to Talk About!

TunNothing

It looks like Mahathir has moved from Nothing to Hide to Nothing to Talk About!

In today’s Malaysia Today blog site, blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin has written a piece in The Corridors of Power” entitled “1MDB Is Najib’s Weapon, Not Mahathir’s

http://www.malaysia-today.net/1mdb-is-najibs-weapon-not-mahathirs/

In the piece (link above) RPK dissects how Tun Mahathir has in a sense placed all his chips on the 1MDB issue in the belief that it (1MDB) is the torpedo that would sink Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

When Tun Mahathir realized that Najib did not buckle under the onslaught he, Lim Kit Siang and the Pakatan machinery threw at him, he (Mahathir) tried to bring down Barisan Nasional.  Ideally, he wanted to keep BN intact for his son (Mukhriz), but Tun Mahathir saw that if it took bringing it (BN) down to bury Najib under the rubble then so be it!

Mahathir’s rage did not end with just trying to bring down BN in order to ruin Najib; he enacted a scorch earth (Malaysia) plan.

A scorch earth operation is where a warring faction destroys the livelihood of the nation they want to conquer in order so that they can take over.

In this case; the scorch Malaysia plan was to have Malaysia viewed as a corrupt nation and thereby unsafe for foreign investment.

In addition, the scorch Malaysia plan also entailed making Malaysians to feel so embarrassed by how they thought the world would view them that they (Malaysians) would demand for Prime Minister Najib Razak to step down.

Tun Mahathir would do all of this because he was like a horse wearing blinders; he could only see the rage he has for Najib and his plans to put his son (Mukhriz) in position to eventually become Prime Minister.

As such, he did not care who (Lim Kit Siang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) he had to crawl into bed with to bring those goals to reality.  In Mahathir’s mind the end justifies the means.

However, the problem with Tun Mahathir wearing blinders is that he could not see the reality which was around him.  For example; he thought that Najib not showing up at the “Nothing to Hide” forum was out of fear.  In fact, it was more of a strategic move on the part of the Prime Minister to stoke the flame of Mahathir’s ego so that he (Mahathir) would believe that he had the upper hand.

Mahathir had also missed that fact that outside of his Pakatan Harapan cohorts (and not all of them) he never got the people on his side; even the million signatures turned out to be a myth.

That is also why when it came to the Prime Minister’s lack of response over the 1MDB attacks; Mahathir could only see (1MDB) what he wanted to see.   As things were, Najib never felt compelled to respond to the accusations and was quite happy to let Tun Mahathir chase after shadows in the dark.

Now it seems that Tun Mahathir is beginning to glimpse the reality of his situation; placing all his chips on 1MDB has moved his ego from an euphoric high after Nothing to Hide to now; where he has Nothing to Talk About!

Pakatan Harapan Doesn’t Need Mahathir or Anwar; They Need a Game Plan!

Pakatan Harapan Doesn’t Need Mahathir or Anwar; They Need a Game Plan!

Lim Kit Siang’s Pakatan Harapan deluded themselves into believing that a tag team consisting of Tun Mahathir and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim with him (Kit Siang) pulling the strings would be all that it would take to unseat Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and eventually capture Putrajaya following GE14.

Pakatan Harapan believed that that Malaysians would perceive this as a dream scenario while forgetting what had taken place between the two (2) men some years ago.

The problem is in order to effectively have a tag team, both men should be on equal footing.  And unless Anwar Ibrahim has a secret tunnel in Sungei Buloh where he can leave at will, he’ still a prisoner.

Therefore all of the hoopla (again) over bygones being bygones, burying the hatchet and water under the bridge is mentioned over and over again with the hope that Malays will buy into the hype.

In addition, how can you have a tag team when one of the two thinks the other is an immoral person and should not be in a position to lead the nation. Or is morality an issue that Tun Mahathir will gladly put to the side, if by doing so he can broker a deal to help his son (Mukhriz) get into the political leadership race.

Now it appears the not only will Anwar’s taste for male companionship be put to the side, but you have Pakatan Harapan saying that Tun Mahathir should not be judged.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/pakatan-says-mahathir-should-not-be-judged-or-punished/

This almost seems like a quid pro quo; you don’t hold my transgression against me and I will not hold yours against you! They are doing this while preaching Bersih!

However all the so called feel good antics which Lim Kit Siang and Pakatan Harapa have choreographed does not a political campaign make.There has to be a strategy in place that goes beyond Tun Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim agreeind to shake hands and to turn a blind eye to each other’s trangressions.

Additionally, Tun Mahathir beating to death an issue like 1MDB may have produced results in the past, but in this technological arena that we are now living, Tun Mahathir no longer controls the narrative.

So what is the intrinsic value Pakatan Harapan has with the socalled teaming of Tun Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim?

If one looks at the results of the previous elections in Sarawak, Kuala Kangsad and Sungei Besar then it is apparent that the only thing Lim Kit Siang can hope to gain is Malays screwing Malays.

https://www.nst.com.my/ne/12/194195/superman-hews-infamous-screw-malays-video-makes-appearance-umno-assembly

Why? If nothing those three (3) elections have produced zilch then one can expect the same results as the players (Tun Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim) are the same.

What it comes down to is this; Pakatan Harapan doesnt need Mahathir or Anwar; they need a game plan and right now they seem more concerned over cliff than substance.

Mahathir Bouncing Around Like a Ping Pong Ball!

LLDOJ

It is kind of comical to see Tun Mahathir bouncing around like a ping pong.

He bounced (via his emissaries) to the DoJ hoping to create talk in Malaysia that the bogeyman (USA) is after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.  However like things that go bump in the night turn, it turned out to be nothing but Tun Mahathir’s wild imagination.

Tun Mahathir could not get tongues wagging in Malaysian over the DoJ announcement nor did his hope in the DoJ cause Prime Minister Najib to do anything other than carry out the affairs of state as he had done since becoming Prime Minister.

Tun Mahathir then popped over to the U.K to no doubt to have a pow wow with what seems like the Pakatan Harapan’s news portal (Sarawak Reports) to come up with a plan B to make it appear that Prime Minister Najib is shaking with fear.

Comically they have come up with Tun Mahathir and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim ‘Reconciliation 3’.

The first ‘Handshake’ did not produce the results they (Pakatan Harapan and Tun Mahathir) hoped so they had to engineer ‘Handshake’ number two (2).  Unfortunately, no one out of the Pakatan Harapan circle seemed to care about it as Tun Mahathir had already been working in some form of fashion with Pakatan Harapan prior to ‘Handshake one’.

The handshakes having failed, the Pakatan advisors orchestrated a tea party between Tun Mahathir’s wife (Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Ali) and Anwar Ibrahim’s wife (Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail).

That meeting was orchestrated for the emotional value that they (Pakatan Harapan) were hoping to benefit from.  However, no one seemed to give a second thought to the meeting over tea as Malaysians meet all the tea so there was nothing new with that.

Now with Mahathir’s own trouble over the Bank Negara Malaysia Forex (BNM) scandal, he is reluctantly playing his last card; the Anwar is not immoral card.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/laughable-for-dr-m-to-blame-judges-for-anwars-conviction-minister-says

Oh wait, didn’t Tun Mahathir say that Anwar was immoral and therefore unfit to be Prime Minister?

Will he now claim that he meant to say someone else; the same way he said it was not the DAP (Kit Siang) who wanted to the deputy Prime Minister post?

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/dr-m-it-was-mca-not-dap-who-asked-for-dpm-post

Many believe that Tun Mahathir is playing his Anwar card in order to keep Anwar Ibrahim from testifying against him (Mahathir) in the BNM forex investigation.  It is a case of you scratch my back and I will ‘almost recant’ on saying you are a backdoor (sodomizer) bandit!

https://www.nst.com.my/news/politics/2017/07/255456/tun-mahathir-backing-anwar-save-own-skin-salleh-keruak

Some believe that it will take some more backdoor (forgive the pun) diplomacy before Tun Mahathir willingly comes out and recants on all that he has said concerning Anwar.

Such negations will not only include testifying that Tun Mahathir was not involved with the BNM forex scandal, but support for his political aspirations for son Mukhriz.

There is no telling where Tun Mahathir will bounce next.  If all else fails, he may even try to bounce over to Prime Minister Najib Razak to seek refuge; and why not, he has already bounced everywhere else!

 

Mahathir’s People Should Have Contacted Houston Instead of the DOJ!

Mahathir Houston

Those aligned to Tun Mahathir have wasted a lot of time and money to get the Department of Justice (DOJ) to get those vague DOJ announcements.  Instead of going to the DOJ, Tun Mahathir should have sent his emissaries should have contacted Houston to say: ‘Houston we have a problem’.

Tun Mahathir and the Anti Najib Corruptors (ANC) really thought that getting the DOJ to say anything no matter how vague about 1Malaysia Development Berhad would get tongues wagging during the Raya break. Nothing farther could be from the truth as it seems not many outside the DAP-led opposition camp cared to discuss a matter that they (Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led coalition) have already run into the ground.

Many people were of the mindset during the break home of;  move along, there’s nothing to see here.

Of course, if you ask the Pakatan Harapan faithful they would swear that that is all they heard during when they balik kampung.  Of course those are those same people who respond to surveys saying they believe farmer Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is the best choice for Prime Minister.

From many accounts, people seemed to have derived more enjoyment from talking about the yearly pilgrimage heavy traffic than anything Tun Mahathir has manufactured.

As things have turned out, the buzz that Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of Pakatan Harapan wanted was no buzz after all, it was more like a wet ‘rocket’ that fizzles; Lim Kit Siang should be able to relate to that.

So all of Pakatan’s hoopla over the DOJ announcement and talk of a road show is just to preach to Lim’s Pakatan opposition choir; most Malaysians know that the DOJ announcement is much to do about nothing!

On the other hand Tun Mahathir’s possible role in the Bank Negara Malaysia Forex scandal may create that buzz that wanted; only this buzz may be about whether Tun Mahathir will do time behind bars or spend his years under house arrest were he can write a new book entitled “Mahathir’s Dilemma”.

Mahathir is coming to realize that you should never spit into the wind as it inevitably will end up in your own face.  Meaning the trouble that Mahathir wanted for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has now returned to him (Tun Mahathir)

That is why Tun Mahathir’s emissaries would have been better off contacting Houston instead of the DOJ to say ‘Houston we/I got a problem’!

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!
