Self Proclaimed Top dog Mahathir is Spending His Last Bit of Gas to Save Mukhriz’ Political Life!

Anyone who has or has had a grandfather would want to see him spending his later years relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends. There are not too many people who would want to see someone in their nineties (90’s) taxing themslves making another run for office.

But the DAP-led Pakatan/PKR opposition self proclaimed top dog is spending his last bit gas to save his son Mukhriz political life.

Tun Mahathir knows that without his intervention Mukhriz was pretty much ‘Dead Politician Walking’.

Tun Mahathir’s son Mukhriz would have been like his business venture The Loaf; kaput, habis, thoroughly and unequivocally politically washed up.

Knowing all to well that Mukhriz could not travel down the political path on his own, Mahathir had to manoeuvre his way back into active politics.

I say active politics because Tun Mahathir thought that he could control Putrajaya without having to be their physically.

However Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak set him straight on that right away. Najib was not going to let himself be a puppet for Mahathir like Datuk Wan Azizah Ishmail is so willing to be for Lim Kit Siang and the DAP.

The pretext of Tun Mahathir returning was to Save Malaysia, but as it has become abundantly clear too many in Malaysia; it’s about saving his son Mukhriz.

Mahathir knows deep down in his heart that trying to have his son become Prime Minister is a losing proposition as Mukhriz does not have what it takes for the job.

In fact, neither does Datuk Wan Azizah; which is probably why Tun Mahathir does not mind her in the deputy prime minister position as he and Lim Kit Siang both know how to manage her.

Tun Mahathir is not converning himself with Wan Azizah right now because he is spending his last bit of gas trying to save Mukhriz’ political life!


Rafidah Aziz Should Help Mahathir Find Why He Sacked Anwar!

It is some what amusing on how the closer we get to the 14th general election the more pure rubbish is coming from DAP-led Pakatan. We learned this week how Rafidah Aziz utilized her stealth detective skills to locate the elusive luxury yacht Equanimity.

Of course like in everything else; timing is everything. With the 14th general election just a short time away, more than few quisical smiles have been produced over what claimed to have found.

Blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin in his ‘THE CORRIDORS OF POWER’ wrote:

On 5th March 2018, Rafidah Aziz said she managed to locate or track down the luxury yacht Equanimity in waters off Phuket, Thailand last year. She personally took photographs of the yacht plus managed to pinpoint the exact location of the Equanimity using the vessel’s automatic identification system.

It seems that if her funds ever run dry, Rafidah Aziz can always take out advertising that reads; If you lost it, I’ll find it!

Perhaps this locator of missing things can help Tun Mahathir remember why he sacked his then deputy prime minister Datuk Anwar Ibrahim; because it seems that he is becoming somewhat blurred over the reason(s).

It seems that only as Tun Mahathir faces electoral defeat that he is will to play one of his few remaining Anwar Ibrahim cards; feigning regret over sacking him!

Funny how he never said that during those media handshakes with Anwar or in the time thereafter.

No doubt making such a statement caused Mahathir’s stomach turn up in knots. However, that acid reflux experience will pale in comparison to when he will have to play his last Anwar Ibrahim card and U-turn on his stating that Anwar is not morally fit to be Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Then Tun Mahathir will forced to say that Anwar Ibrahim did not engage in Sodomy in the past.

So why would Mahathir do all of that?

He needs Malay votes and he has run out of 1Malaysia Development Berhad tricks to try and fool the Malays. As a result he is only left with playing his Anwar cards.

Let’s face reality, if Mahathir did not have a son that he so desperately wants to be Prime Minister, there is no way he (Mahathir) would ever join up with Lim Kit Siang (DAP), do hand shakes one and two with Anwar or ever admit that he made a mistake in sacking him.

Now with the approaching GE14 election, Mahathir cannot seen to find reasons for his past decisions. Perhaps that is where Rafidah Aziz’s If you lost it, I’ll find it career comes in handy.

Note Rafidah; an online check of Mahathir’s past remarks and videos about Anwar should privide enough ti jog his memory.

Muhyiddin Gambled on Mahathir and Pakatan and Lost!

It seems that in the high stakes game of politics, former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s gamble on Mahathir and Pakatan did not pay off.

Even though the 14th general election is still to come; it seems appropriate to use the past tense when referring to the former deputy prime minister.

As many believe, Muhyiddin was offered a carrot to take sides against his former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

The carrot for taking such a stand was none other than the position of Prime Minister.

For some reason that perhaps he (Muhyiddin) does not fully under, he believed that Mahathir still had enough political juice to get Najib out of office.

Muhyiddin also failed like Anwar Ibrahim to take into account the extracurricular activities that the have damaged many a political careers. Anwar’s penchant for the intimate company of males and Muhyiddin desire to plant seeds in the lotus field.

Anwar Ibrahim’s activities have landed him in Sungei Buloh. Muhyiddin Yassin’s have moved his name from any consideration (if there ever was) of him achieving his dream of becoming Malaysia’s Prime Minister.

But was Muhyiddin ever a serious candidate?

After Tun Mahathir realized that all king Lim Kit Siang’s horses and men along with him could not unseat Najib, he had to take matters into his own hands. He (Mahathir) could not risk his son Mukhriz political future on Muhyiddin’s inability to win.

Of course Muhyiddin would have been a good temporary prime minister when Tun Mahathir thought taking Putrajaya would be a walk in the park; but when all efforts failed to remove Najib, Mahathir had to position himself to be DAP-led Pakatan’s designated choice for prime minister, if they were to win GE14.

With his securing the top position, there is no way Mahathir will allow Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail, her imprisoned husband Anwar Ibrahim or Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali to come in and seat themselves in the place that he wants his son to occupy.

So it is plain to see with so many craving for a seat at the table, Muhyiddin is left looking on holding a sign that reads:

‘Remember me’

Who knows, perhaps Muhyiddin will be compensated in some other way for taking a seat way in the back. After all he gave up his position as deputy prime minister and any chance of becoming prime minister.

However, when all is said and done, Muhyiddin Yassin will still be viewed as the man who gambled on Mahathir and DAP-led Pakatan and lost!

Mahathir Cannot See the Irony in Asking PAS to State Their Choice for PM!

images (6a)

There is something seriously wrong with those in the DAP-led Pakatan opposition camp when Tun Mahathir (their self proclaimed ‘top dog’) asked PAS to state their choice for Prime Minister.

Is Tun Mahathir’s memory so short that Pakatan Harapan has just only recently produced his name (Tun Mahathir’s) name as their choice?  Just imagine, had Tun Mahathir not run over to Lim’s Pakatan Harapan opposition desperately in search of a platform to give his son Mukhriz’ failing political career alive, Pakatan would still be ducking and dodging questions about their Prime Minister choice.

Now Tun Mahathir thinks that he can somehow back Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and PAS in the corner by forcing them to state their choice for Prime Minister.  If PAS does not say who their choice is, then Tun Mahathir will say that PAS is supporting the government.  Even if PAS were to provide a name, Mahathir would say that their choice is only to create another factor in a three (3) cornered fight in the 14th general election.

Not falling for Tun Mahathir’s trick, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang provides a response that Tun Mahathir knows that he cannot criticize.

TEMERLOH: Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang says Allah will decide who becomes prime minister after the 14th general election (GE14).

Datuk Hadi Awang also said the following:

“We are not greedy to become leaders but want Islam to lead, save the country, save humanity, this is the core of our cause.”

Tun Mahathir should really sit back and meditate on what Datuk Hadi Awang said about not being greedy to become leaders.  Even after leaving office, Mahathir has been obsessed with either trying to influence his successors or working to remove them.

Having had no luck in trying to force Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office, Mahathir has now manoeuvred his way into bed with his former Nemesis Lim Kit Siang and woke up the next morning as Lim Kit Siang’s ‘top dog’.

But when you are greedy for power, it does not matter who you make a deal with just as long as you get what you want.  But having crawled into bed with comes with a price; Mahathir has to follow the marching orders of Pakatan Harapan’s real top dog; Lim Kit Siang.

So if Lim Kit Siang gets word to Mahathir to use some of his tricks to try to paint PAS in a political corner, that is what Mahathir will try to do.

But it’s myopic on Mahathir’s part that he cannot see the irony in asking PAS to state their choice for Prime Minister when Lim Kit Siang and his Pakatan opposition have only recently named him as theirs!

Mahathir should also remember what Hadi Awang said: Allah will decide who becomes prime minister after the 14th general election (GE14).


Mahathir is Having a Two for One Sale!


It seems that Tun Mahathir may be offer anther two for one sale since Mukhriz is not picking up any political buzz from the DAP-led Pakatan opposition.

So here we go again with Tun Mahathir wanting someone, anyone to give his son help and he will come along as the plus one.

While one could see how desperate both the DAP-led Pakatan opposition would be to accept such an arrangement as well as Tun Mahathir for holding that carrot out for them; it would be odd for UMNO to open its doors given all the dirt surrounding Tun that is coming to light.   After all, it would be difficult for UMNO to pull a Lim Kit Siang and not bring up an issue like the BMN forex scandal after sending years talking about it.

But Tun Mahathir is only one half of the equation; his son Mukhriz Mahathir is the other.

If Raja Petra Kamarudin’s report in The Corridors of Power is true and Tun Mahathir wants Mukhriz to be deputy Prime Minister 2, that will prove that Tun Mahathir only concern is his own legacy.

In addition, if the story is fact, it will also prove that it does not matter who Tun Mahathir has to climb into bed with just as long as Mukhriz has a safe seat and he can catapult to the front of the line of the political party (UMNO) that he lambasted.

Still a more poignant and yet embarrassing point is this; Mukhriz Mahathir left on his own is a political non entity; he needs his father’s help.  That is why the upcoming 14th general election is so important for both father and son; this is their last chance to grab the brass ring on the political merry go round.  If it does not happen this time, it never will.

However, Tun Mahathir wanting his son to be Prime Minister has blinded him so badly that he failed to consider something important.  Voters do not want a weak leader; especially one who depends almost entirely on their father to secure a path for them.

Mukhriz needing his father to create a political party in order to give him relevance or to negotiate deals so that he can have a winnable seat, only shows voters that he does not have what it takes to make it on his own.   It also shows that he does not have the leadership qualities needed to be Prime Minister or deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia.

That is probably why Tun Mahathir is having a two for one sale.  He is hoping that he being part of any deal would make Mukhriz a more sellable commodity instead of a political oddity!


Mahathir Like Mugabe Must Face The Inevitable!


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.

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.

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!

Mahathir’s Motivation is Saving Mukhriz not Malaysia!


Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has come out and stated motivation behind a former leader all out attacks to oust him from office.

Everyone in Malaysia should know that the former leader that Najib referenced is no other than the Tun Mahathir.  Apparently Mahathir was so angered that his son Mukhriz lost his bid to become an UMNO vice president post that he decided to take revenge on UMNO’s top man.

Of course, Tun Mahathir could not come out and say that was or is the reason for attacking the Prime Minister; he had to look for another avenue.  That is where 1Malaysia Development Berhad or IMDB came in handy.

Tun Mahathir used flawed information about 1MDB to convince people in Malaysia and abroad that the Prime Minister was corrupt and should not stay in office.  Of course during that period, when pressed on who he thought should be Prime Minister and deputy Prime Minister his silence was as if to say; fill in the blank!

Mahathir’s behaviour throughout the campaign to oust the Prime Minister is like that of a child who rebels when things do not go his way.  As a result he cried and quit the party as he headed out the door.  In other words, he has done whatever he could to raise havoc because he saw the chance for his son Mukhriz to follow in his footsteps disappearing before his very eyes.

It seemed totally lost on Tun Mahathir the fact that Mukhriz was and is still not up to the task of following in his footsteps.  Mahathir may state otherwise, but the cold harsh truth is that Mukhriz would not have gotten as far as he has had Tun Dr Mahathir had not been his father.  Without Tun Mahathir being and what he has to ‘offer’ being in the picture, Lim Kit Siang would have nothing to do with Mukhriz.

Mahathir is a former Prime Minister who cannot let go of his former job.  This is what Prime Minister Najib Razak also has written in his blog.

The “former leader” is “obsessed by power” and wanted to continue ruling long into his retirement.

“I had refused to conform to his ways as I firmly believed that Malaysia needed a new vision, away from the old ways that had led to the serious legacy problems that we had faced before and which were damaging the people’s welfare,”

Mahathir knew that the only way to get what he wanted; a dynasty, crooked bridge, still have power is for him to try to Mukhriz in as deputy Prime Minister first and then Prime Minister.  However, in order to make all of that come about he had to try to turn the people against Najib.

Since both Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang had their sights on Purtrajaya (for different reasons), they hatched a plan to try and discredit Najib by saying that the latter was corrupt.

Nevertheless, even with these unfounded allegations Prime Minister Najib Razak stayed above the fray and continued to work towards his vision of making Malaysia and Malaysians prosperous.

Even in his blog he did not mention the name of the former leader whose son lost the bid for an UMNO vice-president post in 2013.

Of course Mahathir will deny that and say everything he is doing is to Save Malaysia;

Tun wink

when everyone knows it’s really about saving his son!
