Who Appointed The DOJ as Malaysia’s Legal Protector!

DOJ

The USA has to realize that Malaysia is not there 51st state and as such do not fall under its laws.

After close to one (1) year, US Department of Justice again seeks to interfere with Malaysia’s sovereignty.  Interestingly it was pointed out in another blog post that these Department of Justice (DOJ) announcements seem curiously timed around the start of Hari Raya.

Does the DOJ believe that Malaysia is unable to conduct a legal investigation without foreign interference?

The Pakatan opposition also wants Malaysians to believe that we are subservient to the USA and that what they (DOJ) says has more merit then what Malaysia says.

This is like those who believe that the ice produced in US is colder than the ice produced in Malaysia.

Malaysia does not need nor require outside interference in matters which concern Malaysia; which is a position that Tun Mahathir once held.

Mahathir used to be a proud Malaysian that stood against United States interference in the affairs of foreign nations.  However now he has tossed those beliefs aside for the sake of expediency.

This happened when it became obvious that Tun Mahathir and the Anti Najib Campaign (ANC) would not be successful in removing Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib Razak through Malaysia’s own investigation into 1Malaysia Development Berhad they dispatched envoys to the USA to file a suit with the department of Justice.

However, even the DOJ could not lay complicity at anyone’s feet.  The DOJ could only say in their response that they are trying to recover funds for the people of Malaysia.

But who appointed the DOJ as Malaysia’s protector.  Malaysia is a proud sovereign nation that does not require outside interference.

Cooperation through partnership yes; interference no!

And the sole purpose of the various DOJ announcements is to interfere in an effort to create suspicion in the minds of Malaysians.

And creating suspicion is all Tun Mahathir wants as this is probably the last card he can play before the 14th general election.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-is-playing-his-last-card-in-a-futile-attempt-to-oust-najib/

It is yet to be seen how DOJ and their carefully worded statements are complicit in Mahathir’s plans, but what is becoming abundantly clear is that if Tun Mahathir is now so much in love with USA law then he cannot set aside one of its basic foundations

In the United States, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. The 14th amendment to the US Constitution guarantees to every person, aliens included, “equal protection under the law.”

 

 

PPBM (Tun Mahathir) has Politically Carjacked Pakatan Harapan!

Tunjacking.jpg

It seems that Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia is attempting the political version of carjacking DAP-led Pakatan Harapan.

When Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition opened their political vehicle door to let Tun Mahathir and PPBM in, they had no idea that they were opening up to a carjacking.

As we are now seeing, not only has Tun Mahathir slithered from the back seat to the front, but he is now seen as having wrestled the steering wheel away.

Then you have Tun Mahathir stating that if the DAP-led opposition asked, he would be open to becoming the Prime Minister nominee.

It was when Tun Mahathir made that very curious statement (above) that he had effectively carjacked Pakatan Harapan.

What makes things even more curious is:

‘The Silence of the Lims’

Neither father (Lim Kit Siang) nor embattled son (Lim Guan Eng) has said anything to suggest that Tun Mahathir was overstepping his new kit on the block status.

Could you imagine the chastisement Amanah’s Mat Sabu would have received had he said he would be the go to guy.  Lim Kit Siang would have told him to go sit in the corner and write 4,000 times; ‘I will not speak unless told to do so’.

But here is the new (Tun Mahathir) arrival saying: Dump the idea of Anwar Ibrahim ever becoming Prime Minister the same way I will unequivocally dumped Muhyiddin Yassin at the right time; for now, I want to be PM lagi!

One has to wonder why the elder Lim has not rebuffed the idea of Tun Mahathir returning to Putrajaya.  After all didn’t Lim Kit Siang also hold up ‘Anwar PM KE-7 placard?

LKS and Anwar placard

http://www.malaysia-today.net/kit-siang-and-his-anwar-pm-ke-7-fiasco/

If he is supposedly behind Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Kit Siang should have jumped in front of the media and proclaimed that Tun Mahathir was out of place with his remarks.

 http://www.malaysia-today.net/kit-siang-is-on-a-political-rampage/

Perhaps the speculation about a secret deal of sorts is more than just mere speculation.  Maybe Lim Kit Siang holding up the ‘Anwar PM KE-7 placard was just part of an elaborate play in which he was acting out his part in it.

On one hand Kit Siang may believe that he can score some points with Malays by holding up the placard and the other hand he may be trying to give the impression that he is not part of any secret pact with Tun Mahathir.

But then Mahathir is still in the process of politically carjacking Pakatan Harapan and Lim Kit Siang has not put the new kid (Tun Mahathir) in his place.

So could the new realigned pact look something like the following;

Tun Mahathir comes in as temporary Prime Minister

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as deputy Prime Minister.

Mukhriz Mahathir as Education Minister or another post that will place him in the succession scheme

Lim Kit Siang as Finance Minister

Then a short period Tun Mahathir steps down elevating Muhyiddin Yassin as Prime Minister and appoints Mukhriz Mahathir as deputy Prime.

Next Muhyiddin Yassin will step down as more information of his picking Chinese tea leaves come to light moving Mukhriz up to Prime Minister and his appointing Lim Kit Siang as deputy Prime Minister while retaining the Finance Minister post.

All which would mean the ‘secret pact’ would still come into play albeit a few more steps.

Therefore the PPBM strategist saying that Tun Mahathir should be PM candidate

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/06/04/pribumi-strategist-pakatans-actions-defy-logic-and-intelligence/

gives some validity to the idea that PPBM (Tun Mahathir) has politically carjacked Pakatan Harapan and the coalition may be dumped at the first opportune time!

 

For Pakatan Harapan To Consider Mahathir, It Would Prove They Are Politically Bankrupt!

images (1)

Recently, Tun Mahathir suggested that if his new opposition (DAP-led Pakatan) friends agreed on him being their Prime Minister, he would consider it.

http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/dr-mahathir-says-he-may-consider-becoming-prime-minister-again

For Pakatan Harapan to even consider Tun Mahathir as Prime Minister would only prove what many are saying; DAP-led Pakatan Harapan is bankrupt on viable candidates of their own whom they can put forth to the public.

If the DAP-led Pakatan opposition has to rely on the 91 year old former Prime Minister many will understand why they have not up to this point in time put forth their choice for Prime Minister.

DAP-led Pakatan’s lack of having groomed, nurtured, discovered anyone of note within their own ranks is a startling testimony about them as an opposition coalition.

Let’s look at those (in no particular order) who DAP-led Pakatan dangled out before the public thus far.

There was former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin whose name was put forth at least twice.  In ‘their’ (PKR backed) Invoke Centre for Policy Initiatives’ surveys even had him as a very popular (37 percent favourable) choice.

As it is with many such surveys; there is little doubt that the DAP-led opposition had called their staunch supporters to get the type of responses they wanted.

There is some certainty that any questions about tilling the soil in another man’s garden did not make it on the list of questions asked.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/sue-to-disprove-affair-rumour-malay-rights-group-tells-muhyiddin

 Next we have Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail the admitted seat warmer who is more comfortable handling Japanese fans than handling a public office or an Aljazeera interview.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/wan-azizahs-disastrous-aljazeera-interview/

While Datuk Wan Azizah is probably a good mother, a good grandmother and loyal wife; she was more than likely competent in her medical profession

However, when it comes to political matter or the affairs of State she is way out of her depth.

For Wan Azizah to come out and admit that she is comfortable being a seat warmer interim Prime Minister, that in itself insults the position of Prime Minister and the citizens of Malaysia who want their leader to have the acumen for the position.

Then there is Datuk Anwar Ibrahim who is sitting (or some variation) in Sungai Buloh prison for doing what Muhyiddin Yassin is said to have done, but only with a man (Sodomy 2).

Even with a less than zero (0) chance of being released before serving his full sentence, there are still those in DAP-led who cry for him to be the 7th or 8th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/hard-talk-with-malaysias-7th-prime-minister/

Mukhriz Mahathir is not seen as electable; his only chance is to enter via the backdoor if by some miracle the opposition came out ahead in a general election

Lim Kit Siang would never get enough non mercenary Malay backing so the best he could ever hope for is to be a deputy Prime Minister. However, like Mukhriz via the backdoor.

All of which brings us back to Tun Mahathir.

For Pakatan Harapan to consider Mahathir, it would only prove that they are politically bankrupt when it comes to candidates whom they can put forth as Prime Minister.

 

 

The House of Tun Mahathir is Burning Down!

Mahathir and Proton

Tun Mahathir may have need for a bigger box of tissues as the 49.9 % sale of Proton to Chinese car maker Zhejiang Geely Automotive Co Ltd is not the only thing he has to weep about these days.

It what is widely viewed to be yet another blow to Tun Mahathir’s fledgling Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysian (PPBM0), one thousand (1,000) members along with Teluk Intan division pro-tem chief Jemaat Yaacob  and Ipoh division pro-term chief Azrul  Suhadi Ahmad Mokhtar all left the political party last Friday (May 26, 2017).

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/over-1000-ppbm-members-in-perak-quit-party-en-masse

This mass exodus comes a little more than one month (April 19th 2017) after the resignation of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia supreme council member Kamarulaman Habibur Rahman.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/19/bersatu-ppbm-membership-may-soon-be-down-to-1-satu/

Just like Kamarulaman Habibur Rahman, the most recent mass exodus came about due to what they describe as party in fighting and cronyism.

Azrul Said stated that the political party’s president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin failed to resolve the internal conflicts in the time period (1) week) that was given to him.  Muhyiddin’s failure to resolve those issues triggered the wave of resignations by those one (1000) members.

Apparently, this most recent mass exodus is only the tip of the iceberg as Azrul suggests that more resignations will follow.

How will the mass resignation affect Tun Mahathir?

Tun Mahathir like Lim Kit Siang (whose DAP party has seen their share of resignations) may care little that members are jumping ship as both men have difficulty seeing beyond their own self interest.

However for Tun Mahathir, those interests are being torn away from around him.

One of his sources of pride: Proton had for a number of years fallen into difficulty and needed to be rescued by international interest.

Another of those sources of pride which is crumbling around him is his believing that he is still a major player on the political scene.

Mahathir has demonstrated that he no longer can sway events his way.  Where once he could lift up or bring down those who he targeted, of late he could not even muster enough influence to rescue his son (Mukhriz Mahahtir) from being removed as Kedah Menteri Besar.

Then there is yet another plank burning in the house Mahathir; his ego.

Mahathir had to swallow his pride in order to work with Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition.  When Tun Mahathir still had political juice, he would not entertain the thought of jumping into bed with Lim; now having to so has most certainly caused Dr. Tun Mahathir a burning sensation deep down in the pit of his stomach.

However, all of those events only served to set the house of Tun Mahathir a blaze. The final plank to burn will more than likely take place after the 14th general election.

Looking ahead, it will be after GE 14 that Tun Mahathir realizes that his plans of having his son Mukhriz as Prime Minister, deputy Prime Minister or anything close to that will have gone up in flames.

Until that time, expect more party resignations; as many who have followed Tun Mahathir into the abyss of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) now see that the house of Mahathir is burning down!

 

The 3Ms (Mahathir, Mukhriz and Muhyiddin) Tipped Their Hand at The PKR Congress!

3M1

If the PKR national congress were a poker match, then the 3Ms effectively tipped their hand when they did not raise the placards saying “Anwar PM Ke 7” placards at the start of the congress.

And how could they raise those placards when they know full well that they have their own aspirations for the top government positions.

While Tun Mahathir may have some comfort level in having Datuk Anwar Ibrahim released from prison; that same comfort does not carry over to wanting him to be Prime Minister.

People have to remember that Tun Mahathir while making U-Turns on almost everything under the sun, he has never backed tracked on Anwar Ibrahim’s moral deficiencies.  That is one of the reasons why he did not raise the “Anwar PM Ke 7” placard.

Of course the main reason for him becoming a photographer instead of placard raiser is because he aspires for his son Mukhriz to have the position of Prime Minister.

At the very least he wants Mukhriz to become deputy Prime Minister while former deputy Prime Minster Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin does a Datuk Wan Azizah Ishmael and keeps the Prime Minister’s seat warm for Mukhriz.

On his part, Muhyiddin Yassin is looking after his own self interest; and that self interest dictated for him to not hold up the ‘Anwar PM Ke 7” placard.

As Muhyiddin knows that has already been viewed as the odd man out in several scenarios, he realized that he had better continue to dance with the same partner (Tun Mahathir) that he arrived at PKR congress with.

Therefore, Muhyiddin Yassin views being a seat warmer for one (1) year, two (2) years or five (5) as no problem on his part; he would just see it as ample compensation for what many see as his betrayal to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, UMNO and Barisan Nasional.

So like Wan Azizah, Muhyiddin Yassin would dutifully keep the seat warm until he is told to make way for Mukhriz.

Given the above, everyone knows why Mukhriz Mahathir did not raise the placard as that would have been seen as disingenuous as when he said that did not want to become Prime Minister.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2016/08/20/mukhriz-may-be-forced-to-swallow-his-words-about-the-prime-ministers-post-he-didnt-want/

But

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mukhriz-refuses-to-endorse-anwar-for-pm/

So what is Mukhriz Mahathir really saying when he says that a PM (Pakatan Harapan) candidate should be announced before the next general election?

Is he, his father Tun Mahathir and Muhyiddin Yassin still hoping that the can barter a deal that would put both he and Muhyiddin Yassin as deputy Prime Minister and Prime Minister or vice versa?

What would be in it for Lim Kit Siang; a get out of jail card for his son Lim Guan Eng as well as some strategic ministerial positions?

Whatever the case; if the PKR congress were a poker game the 3Ms have tipped their hand and everyone including PKR knows that their cards are not behind Anwar!

 

 

 

Mahathir’s History of Mythical Numbers!

images (4)

It appears that Tun Mahathir has once again had a problem with math.

We all remember his (Tun Mahathir’s) math skills when he first tried to convince Malaysians that there was money that vanished into thin air from the 1Malaysia Development Berhad coffers.

First he said one amount then lowered that figure only to significantly increase it after that.  However, after all was said and done, it turned out that Mahathir was wrong on each occasion.

Then there was his claim to have a million signatories for his petition.  Yet, when the time came to prove the validity of the signatures, one could almost hear a pin drop.

Now, once again Tun Mahathir has made a numerical claim that many find unbelievable.

During a recent press conference at Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) Tun Mahathir claimed that at Pakatan Harapan events, the Malay crowd could range somewhere between 12,000 and 15,000. (Here)

Those numbers are highly questionable as TV 3 is said to only have the Malay Turnout at around 200 (if that).

Tun Mahathir is trying to delude himself and Malaysians into believing that Malays are coming out in droves in support of PPBM and Pakatan Harapan.

Could it be that Tun Mahathir attended the same creative math seminar that has landed Lim Guan Eng in deep water?

How did Tun Mahathir count?

Did count double for every Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) member; one (1) for the PPBM and one (1) for UMMNO?

Or were those who he claimed are UMNO members really PPBM members pretending to be UMNO members to give the impression that UMNO members are doing like DAP and PPBM members and jumping Pakatan Harapan’s sinking ship.

Then again, perhaps when Tun Mahathir looked out into the crowds he saw people wearing T-shirts with UMNO written on them as that would make a lot of sense when attending a Pakatan Harapan rally

As the figures that Tun Mahathir has mentioned are equally unbelievable and unverifiable; there is a strong indication that Tun Mahathir is using the same convoluted math method that was utilized to come up with his mythical one million signatures.

In mentioning large numbers (12,000 and 15,000) and loosely tying it to Malays, Tun Mahathir is trying to give Malays the impression that they are missing out.  He wants Malays to feel that, if so many other Malays are showing up to (of all places) Lim Kit Siang’s Pakatan Harapan rallies then they should too.

The plain truth is Tun Mahathir could not pull significant Malay numbers for Lim Kit Siang’s Pakatan opposition before Pribumi joined Pakatan Harapan and the same is true now that merger is consummated.  His only hope now is to fabricate large numbers in an effort to trick Malays into supporting his cause.

In retrospect, with Mahathir’s history of numerical errors should BMF really be a surprise!

The Forced Union of Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir; Like Trying to Mix Oil and Vinegar!

images (6)

DAP-led Pakatan Harapan de-facto leader Lim Kit Siang, just like his nemesis cum political bed-mate Tun Mahathir are both devoid of any fresh ideas to what to do next either separately or mixed together like vinegar and oil to unseat Prime Minister Najib Razak.

The two aging former political adversaries are deluded in believing that can chart the course of Malaysia’s politics from the same ship.

The problem is that while on the surface they try to present the impression that they are working together; the truth is that their working together is more akin to that of oil forced to mix with vinegar; it doesn’t work.  There is a continual need to shake things up to get the momentary taste of togetherness.

However, when there is the absence of anything to agitate the mixture, each will eventually fight for its own identity to come to the forefront.

Such is the case of Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir.

They both require their mutual dislike (for their own reasons) for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to keep things agitated enough for them to mix.

That is why they do not want things to quiet down politically for any length of time.  They both know that if there is no issue that they can throw at the Prime Minister, then their true feelings and angst about each other and each other’s political party would once again rise to the surface.

Both Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir view this unnatural non-cohesive mixture they have (like oil and vinegar) necessary for their political agendas to come to materialize.

The benefit for Lim Kit Siang is like those restaurant owners who try to present their establishment as being halal; so they hire a few ladies wearing tudungs in order to draw in Malay customers.

In the same way Lim Kit Siang needs Malays/Bumis around the DAP to give the impression that his party (DAP) is halal.  That is why they put up with PKR, have enticed Amanah to break away from PAS and even allowed Tun Mahathir to enter their sanctum

 

mahathir-dap-1
Oil and Vinegar forced to mix!

The DAP only wants to use the Malay’s and their votes to achieve their political agenda after which they will discard them like yesterday’s newspaper.

With respect to Tun Mahathir; the worse kept secret in the Malaysia is the fact that Mahathir wants his son Mukhriz to eventually become Prime Minister; even though he may say otherwise.  As such, Mahathir had no other choice, but to align himself with his political enemies.

The extent that Tun Mahathir is willing to go to achieve his agenda has even prompted this writer to suggest that he might even proclaim his being wrong about Israel.  (Here)

Recently our mixture of oil and vinegar (Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir) have started trying to put pressure on PAS by proclaiming that if the PAS is not with them then they are with Barisan Nasional.

Lim Kit Siang and the DAP cannot come out and say this directly about PAS as that would appear that they are begging them to return to the fold.  What they did was to get their Malay proxy mouth piece Amanah say it.  (Here)

Almost reading from the same script, Tun Mahathir says that PAS is confused and then goes on to say that if they PAS do not join on to their effort then they are supporting Barisan Nasional (Here)

Perhaps PAS is looking at the unnatural mixture of oil and vinegar and may think that one is slimy and the other is too vindictive.

Whichever the case, PAS is a mature Muslim party and can determine what is best for Muslims and the nation as a whole.

If Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir cannot entice PAS to mix in as a buffer, the buried sentiments of the two (2) aging adversaries may eventually resurface and cause them to turn on each other!
