Pakatan’s Malay Face Failed to Deliver the Goods!

DAPMalayfaces

Often when a sports team wants to reach the next level, they will go out and bring in veterans to help them achieve that goal.

That is exactly what Lim Kit Siang had done when he brought in Mat Sabu and Amanah as well as the ‘3 M’ package consisting of Tun Mahathir, former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Mukhriz Mahathir along with dwindling remains of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM).

Having them on board was supposed to be Lim Kit Siang’s Pakatan opposition Key to the Malay vote and victory in the upcoming 14th general election.  But as happened previously, Pakatan Harapan’s Malay face (in the collective sense) failed to deliver the goods; the Malay crowd.

In the weeks and days leading up to the ‘Love Malaysia End Kleptocracy’ rally, DAP-led Pakatan most certainly got wind that the crowd size would be small, which is probably why they turned down using the stadium; it have been would have been too obvious.

Realizing that they did not have the numbers, Lim Kit Siang and company were probably hoping that the police would stop or interfere with their event.  In that way they could play victim and say that the masses were turned back thus having an excuse for the low turnout.

However the police allowed the event to take place without interference.  In doing so, it was very obvious that there was a weak turnout.  In addition to the events lack of size, the rally seemed to mirror Bersih in that it mainly the Chinese that show up.

However even that is not saying much as Lim Kit Siang also had trouble pulling in ‘his crowd.’

http://www.malaysia-today.net/chinese-bravado/

So the overall lack of numbers makes one think:

Was the small size of the crowd due to Malaysians getting tired of the same old rhetoric that Pakatan opposition spews whenever they have the chance?

Or…

Do Malaysians find it hypercritical that the very same DAP-led Pakatan that has organized the ‘Love Malaysia End Kleptocracy’ rally has within it ranks those who paint a negative picture Malaysia internationally as well as having ‘top dogs’ who been accused of kleptocracy?

Perhaps the message that was being sent to the DAP-led opposition is; first clean up your own house before accusing someone else of having a dirty house.

A dirty house (DAP-led Pakatan) along with dirty politics may be the reason why their Malay faces failed to do what they were brought into the coalition to do; deliver the goods (Malays)!

Pakatan Harapan; Yes to Beer, No to RUU355!

LKSbeervsRUU355

There is something seriously wrong with DAP-led Pakatan Harapan when they want Malaysians and especially Malays to accept Beer Festivals, but yet reject PAS President Hadi Awang’s Private member’s Bill (RUU355).

Apparently that is the type of liberalism that Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition wants for Malaysia.  One in which vices are encouraged while the idea of strengthening laws that are already in the books for Muslims is discouraged.

Those having views aligned with Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-opposition see the rejection of the Beer festival as imposing the values of one community over that of another.

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2017/09/20/beer-fest-rejection-implies-values-one-community-superior-rest-cenbet

Read Lim Guan Eng’s comments in the following link:

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2017/09/20/support-beer-festival-both-sides-political-divide-updated

Those who are favor of the festival love to preach about one community trying to impose their values on another, yet what did they do when PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang introduced his Private Members Bill (RUU355); they were up in arms and hell bent against it.

Pure hypocrisy!

Lim Kit Siang and those aligned with his way of thinking went on a campaigned to try to get non Muslims to believe that RUU355 would curtail the drinking, gambling and other illicit vices that they hold sacred in the name of freedom of choice.

Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition say that Muslims should not comment on an event like the Beer Festival because it has nothing to do with them.

Does anyone else see the irony in that?

In the view of non Muslims like Lim Kit Siang and those who hold to his way of thinking; Muslims should not comment on or interfere with events like Beer Festivals from taking place.

However, they (Lim Kit Siang and others) believe it is acceptable for them to comment on matters that pertain to Muslims.  Why?

Patriarchal Lim Kit Siang believes he and those like him know what is best for Muslims and in their minds RUU355 is not good for Muslims.

What Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition want is for Muslims to embrace an anything goes attitude.  For Muslims to reject such an open lifestyle is becoming synonymous to Islamisation creeping into Malaysia.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/09/19/dap-beer-festival-ban-sign-of-creeping-islamisation/

Those who use terms like Islamisation want Muslims to become so uncomfortable, that they (Muslims) embrace any type of liberal lifestyle that is presented to them.  However seeing the writing on the wall, over twenty-five (25) NGOS protested against organizing alcohol and LGBT festivals.

https://www.nst.com.my/news/politics/2017/09/282847/25-ngos-hold-protest-against-organising-alcohol-lgbt-festivals

There is little doubt that those who share the view of Lim kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition will want all Malaysians to say Yes to Beer, LGBT etc, but No to RUU355!

 

Pakatan Using Fear Tactic to Force PAS Back!

PAS-PKR-DAP-cracked-L-e1506573004314

Has anyone else noticed Pakatan’s latest’s tactic using the fear factor to force PAS back into the fold?

This is the most recent ploy used after DAP-led Pakatan’s De facto leader Lim Kit Siang was unsuccessful in trying to lure PAS back into the fold.  After that attempt failed, Clare Rewcastle-Brown the editor and chief of Sarawak Report went on the attack and accused Datuk Seri Hadi Awang of accepting a bribe.  Allegedly the bribe was supposed to be connected to funds from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Sarawak Report wanted Malays to think that, if the Prime Minister is accused of taking 1MDB money and PAS President Hadi Awang accepts illegal 1MDB money then he is also tainted.

However, accusing the PAS President of bribery has backfired as Clare Rewcastle-Brown did not anticipate Haidi Awang asking his lawyers to bring her to court over her claim; a claim which she failed to prove.

While the dream was being played out in the London court, a Muslim face of DAP-led Pakatan was sent to again encourage PAS President Hadi Awang to bring PAS back into the fold; an effort that was also met with failure.

Seeing that the direct approach was getting them (DAP-led Pakatan) nowhere, a new tactic was put into play; using ‘fear’ to scare PAS into returning.

DAP-led Pakatan wants PAS to fear losing ‘political power’.

Articles have started to appear with the sole purpose of making PAS fearful about their prospects in the upcoming 14th general election.

An article in Berita daily reads: research house says ‘Opposition Bickering Good for BN’.

http://www.beritadaily.com/research-house-says-opposition-bickering-good-for-bn/

Another article which is cause fear in the PAS rank and file appeared in the Malaysia Chinese news under the heading ‘PAS may lose heavily in a three-cornered fight’.

Trying to add to PAS fear, there is the following article that mentions how ‘PAS will not be a factor in Selangor’.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/pas-will-not-be-a-factor-in-selangor-in-ge14/

Malaysia Mail Online (MMO) carried that following story from Singapore daily; The Straits Times (ST). The report states that ‘PAS may lose Kelantan in GE14’.

The common theme running through all of these articles is PAS should be afraid because it is weak and cannot hold on to power unless it runs back into the arms of Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led Pakatan opposition.

However in addressing PAS’ so called weakness multimedia and communications minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak stated ‘PAS is not weak although it has left Pakatan Harapan’. He goes on to say…’although PAS had its ups and downs, the party members were always loyal to the party and its grassroots machinery was also strong’.

Read the full article below

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/report-pas-may-lose-kelantan-in-ge14#HWE1DhjkodZr1vwI.97

DAP-led Pakatan using the fear of loss as a means to bring PAS back is severely misplaced.  Lim Kit Siang and those aligned to his way of thinking must believe that the leadership in PAS is more concerned about power than about principles.

It is the belief that PAS cares more about power than they do about principles which gives further credence to what Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) has written ‘Why Chinese Do Not Understand PAS’; and which is why using the fear factor to bring PAS back to the (beer party) coalition will not work!

Pakatan’s Post GE14 Economic Plan; Empty Promises and Beer Festivals!

Kit-Siang-Beer

Pakatan seems to have finally forged their post 14th general election economic plan. It consists of making empty promises and hosting beer festivals to bring in revenue.

On the flip side, we have world leaders (US President Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May) inviting Malaysia Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to visit their nations.  There is even a Bloomberg report that states that both Malaysia and Hong Kong are the biggest Asian growth surprises.

Part of the report reads: (Bloomberg) The two nations received the largest upgrades for this year among major economies in the Asian Development Bank’s latest outlook released on Tuesday. Click the link below to read the full article.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/hk-and-malaysia-are-biggest-asian-growth-surprises-says-adb/

The report comes on the heels of other economic successes that are bringing in investments from China, India, Japan and other nations.

In contrast to those accomplishments, Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition can only make promises.  Some examples of these promises are:

Tun Mahathir promising to build another Proton

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/08/25/mahathir-mohamad-start-another-car-project/

In a response to the above proposal, the communications and multimedia Datuk Salleh Said Keruak tells Mahathir to get real about ‘another Proton’.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/08/25/salleh-tells-mahathir-to-get-real-about-another-proton/

In an attempt to lure the votes in Sarawak, DAP-led Pakatan is digging in their empty sack to for more empty promises; placing them under the guise of a new deal for Sarawak.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/pakatan-harapan-committed-to-new-deal-for-sarawak/

Read RPK’s ‘Does Mahathir think Sarawak is stupid’ response below.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-thinks-sarawakians-are-stupid/

Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition has further their desperation by trying to bait the government into allowing a Beer fest of sorts to take place in Kuala Lumpur.  However, due to security and other concerns the doors are closed to this activity taking place in Kuala Lumpur.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/igp-beer-fest-cancelled-due-to-possible-militant-attack/

Now the question becomes; will Selangor Menteri Besar welcome the Beer Fest in his area?  How can the Muslim components in Pakatan Harapan openly support this type of activity?

http://www.malaysia-today.net/beer-and-daps-questionable-allies/

PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang and the rest of PAS must be shaking their heads thinking; ‘they wanted us to be a party to this type of behavior’.

All things considered, it’s mind boggling how DAP-led Pakatan can criticize Najib for bringing in foreign investments when the only economic plan they have to offer Malaysians consists of empty promises and hosting beer festivals!

Pakatan Harapan; A Case Study on How to Lose an Election!

images (6a)

Pakatan Harapan has embarked on a mission to become a case study on how to lose an election.

It is mind boggling how a political coalition which is made up of supposedly seasoned politicians can steer their political vehicle unto the highway, see oncoming headlights and still keep going.  While doing so they are saying to each look at them; their driving the wrong way!

Such is the problem when you believe that you are correct and those who do not side with you are wrong.

DAP-led Pakatan Harapan in its various forms has been trying to get Malaysians to believe that they (Pakatan Harapan) are headed in the right direction and that the Prime Minister and those who are with him are not only wrong, but are the cause of Malaysia and the rest of the world’s woes.

To prove their point, they point to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).  Although there is no evidence to the contrary, DAP-led Pakatan insist that a crime has been committed and that the Prime Minister is the beneficiary of said crime.

However, when it comes to such issues as how Bank Negara’s loses were covered as the result of forex speculation; Lim Kit Siang and others seemed to have lost his way over the issue.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/where-is-your-moral-compass-kit-siang/

Before Lim Kit Siang started his bromance with Tun Mahathir, he would have been in front of the media daily over the possibility of EPF funds being used to cover BNM loses.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/epf-paid-for-bank-negaras-rm31-5-billion-losses/

Further to that; Lim would have also wanted an inquiry into how Mahathir and family have amassed so much wealth in such a short period of time.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/rm5-7-billion-lost-gambling-so-where-is-rm25-8-billion-more/

The DAP-led Pakatan real ‘Top-dog’ has to explain the reason behind his apparent U-turn from the zeal he once had over these issues which have produced more red flags than 1MDB could ever produce.

Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition’s blunder is that they focused all their attention on a non issue (1MDB).  They did this hoping that it would become an issue while at the same they chose to time close their eyes to real issues like BMF because it was politically expedient to do so.

Adding to Pakatan Harapan’s case study on how to lose an election is their setting themselves as the clean political standard bearers.  The rakyat saw very clearly how DAP-led Pakatan insisted that Prime Minister Najib step down over the investigation into 1MDB, but yet they did not require Penang Menteri Besar Lim Guan Eng to do likewise.

Rounding off Pakatan’s case study on how to lose an election is in how they (PH) have nothing to offer.  Of course they throw out sugar coated promises like scraping then keeping then scraping again the Goods and Services Tax (GST) no tolls or similar items that people use when they want to buy a child’s affection.

They also have nothing to show the rakyat in way of leadership.  Pakatan Harapan has not been able to name someone who is not in prison for sodomy or well pass the age of retirement to be their potential Prime Minister candidate.

Looking at Pakatan Harapan’s various blunders and miscues along the way; there is little surprise that they are becoming a case study on how to lose an election!

 

Even with Mahathir, Pakatan is Still in a Blur!

Tun and PKR

Often in life people hope for something like fortune, fame or a love interest that will serve as the fix all for all of their problems.  However, not too long after they have received what they thought would make their life complete the realize that things have become worse instead of better.

This may be how DAP-led Pakatan is viewing life with respect to their relationship with Tun Mahathir.

Tun Mahathir was supposed to be the cure for what the DAP-led opposition was suffering from.

And what they suffered from was a litany of problems.

For example, before Tun Mahathir’s arrival, the Pakatan coalition had no head. They were like the headless horseman from the short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by the American Author Washington Irving.

SH

Being headless the only thing that DAP-led opposition could do was seek to destroy whoever stood in their path to Putrajaya; in this case it is Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.  However one of the drawback of being headless, you have no clear direction (leadership) and there is a greater chance of self inflicted (infighting) injuries.

Another problem the DAP-led had opposition had was akin to that of the wizard in the “Wizard of Oz”.  They wanted to give the persona of being all knowing and powerful, but it was all smoke and mirrors; it was a little man behind that was trying to make Pakatan Harapan seem powerful.

But just as the fake wizard in the Wizard of Oz was exposed when the curtains were pulled back so was Lim Kit Siang exposed as DAP-led Pakatan’s wizard.  After all, who but their wizard working behind the scenes could pull the right levers to formally get Mahathir invited into DAP-led Pakatan coalition.

LKSoz

Lim Kit Siang not only got Tun Mahathir an inside pass, but also allowed him to claim the status of ‘Top-dog’.

Allowing Mahathir to do that proved that while DAP-led Pakatan had no acceptable public leader their real king maker (Lim Kit Siang) was hiding behind the curtain. .

Even as such; how embarrassing it must be for a political coalition to not have qualified individuals that can openly attract voters; especially Malay voters.  Instead they had no choice other than to bring in Mahathir at 92 years to try and bring in Malay votes.

DAP-led Pakatan literally proved the truth of the saying ‘Desperate times called for desperate measures’.  In this case Lim Kit Siang and his DAP were desperate enough to believe that Tun Mahathir could deliver what PKR and Amanah could not.

Now DAP-led Pakatan realizes that even with Tun Mahathir, they will still come up short of what they need for the next general election.

Mahathir can always boast that he has delivered (PPBM) votes.  But that may change when the general election rolls around as PPBM members are becoming increasingly disenchanted.

In Pakatan’s eyes, Najib is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t!

Najib-Trump5

One of many mistakes that DAP-led Pakatan has made and still makes is seeing wrong in everything that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak does. In other words the Prime Minister is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

By way of examples; when the Prime Minister instituted the Goods and Sales Tax (GST) the DAP-led Pakatan opposition came down on him hard.  They were so opposed to the GST that they said that they would scrap it within the first 100-days if they come into power.

https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/388481

However after realizing that they had no mean to replace the revenue that the GST generated, Pakatan Harapan not surprisingly made a U-Turn.

http://www.malaysianchinesenews.com/2017/04/nurul-izzah-pakatan-harapan-will-not-abolish-gst-but-lower-its-tax-rate-once-taking-over-putrajaya/

No matter if they were admit it or not, this U-turn really meant they agree that Prime Minister Najib Razak made the correct decision in implementing the GST.  As a result of its (GST) success, other nations are looking to also implement the GST.

GST

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/pm-gst-subsidy-rationalisation-implementation-was-the-right-decision

In Asia, Prime Minster Najib had a very successful trip to China that has the potential of bringing in RM14364 Billion worth of deals to Malaysia.

https://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/11/185129/rm14364bil-worth-deals-signed-china-pm-najib

In addition to China, the Prime Minister also strengthened bilateral ties with Japan the will also be good for the economy of Malaysia.

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/06/21/pm-msia-will-continue-to-welcome-foreign-investors/

Further to those mentioned, Prime Minister Najib Razak’s trip to India will provide benefits to both India and Malaysia.

In reviewing the Prime Minister’s China trip, it is quite apparent that DAP-led Pakatan did not want the Prime Minister to be successful. While they did not openly criticize his success there, any investment is a blow to their claim that Malaysia is not a safe place for investment.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/opposition-is-jealous-worried-about-najibs-china-visit-salleh-says#eGIc0Fhy7D4h0erm.97

There is little doubt that DAP-led Pakatan probably wishes that it was their man or woman who brought in all of the investments.  Had Pakatan Harapan been behind the investments to Malaysia, they would have used it as a banner to show that foreign investors have confidence in them and not the Goverment.  Now the only thing Pakatan can do is try to sabotage, stop and criticize any moves the Prime Minister makes on behalf of Malaysia.

Look at the example of Prime Minister Najib’s White House invitation to meet with President Donald Trump.  Lim Kit Siang tried to get Cabinet to block the Prime Minister from going.

Why?

He (Lim Kit Siang) and his DAP-led opposition knew that all the lies which they put out about Najib being arrested over 1MDB would be blown to bits.  So following the Prime Minister’s triumphant trip, Pakatan could only try to spin it and say that it was not a big deal; which begs the question.

If it were not a big deal then why try to block it.

http://english.astroawani.com/malaysia-news/salleh-lim-kit-siang-fears-najibs-visit-washington-153861

To spin the Prime Minister’s visit with USA President in a negative light; DAP-led Pakatan is saying that instead of bringing investment to Malaysia, the Prime Minister is sending financial opportunities to the USA.

No doubt had more investment from the USA came about as the result of Prime Minister’s trip the DAP-led opposition would have claimed that the USA is buying Malaysia to have more influence in the region or meddling in Malaysia affairs.  Hope the irony of the latter is not lost on you; just think Mahathir and ‘Doj’.

What it all comes down to is this: DAP-led Pakatan will always see the glass as half empty no matter what the Prime Minister Najib Razak does.  In their eyes; the Prime Minister is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

Knowing this, Prime Minister Najib Razak just says screw them (or words to that effect) I will do what needs to be done to bring economic prosperity to Malaysia!
