Pakatan’s G14 Plans to Take Putrajaya are Unravelling Like a Cheap Suite!

With less than a month to go until the 14th general election, Pakatan Harapan’s plan to capture Putrajaya by hook or by crook are unravelling like a cheap suite.

Pakatan Harapan tried to wrap their attempt at a coup d’etait as some noble gesture to save Malaysia. However, no one really bought into the whole ‘Save Malaysia’ idea; or at least how DAP-led Pakatan was trying to frame it.

Many people saw it as a euphemism for Tun Mahathir just wanting to save his son Mukhriz and along with that his (Tun Mahathir’s) waining legacy.

The People’s Congress did not fair any better as Malaysia’s rakyat was starting to see through the farce.

In fact, all attempts that DAP-led Pakatan before and after Tun Mahathir’s official joining of the coalition have never gained the momentum from Malaysians the wanted anticipated.

The lack of interest from Malays is especially troubling for DAP-led Pakatan as they were counting on their latest aquisitions (Amanah and PPBM) to bring about their Malay tsunami.

Amanah’s function was to pull the PAS supporters over and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) was tasked with pulling UMNO supporters.

But just like a cheap suite, there were and are problems with the material in which it is made up.

Malaysians started seeing that the coalition was not as equal as DAP-led Pakatan wanted Malaysians to believe.

Making things even worse for the DAP-led coalition was that Malaysians were beginning to see the DAP as the puppet masters and their Malay hirelings.

Lim Kit Siang and the DAP knew that by putting Malay faces out front and allow the old fellow refer to himself as the ‘Top dog’ then that would be enough to cause Malays to harken to their call.

Lim Kit Siang and the DAP also understand that it easy to get Malay to attack or sell out their own interest, if their is financial reward or positions of prestige involved.

However, not all Malays are motivated by financial gain, positions etc. That is why there were liable attacks made against PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang.

Since Hadi Awang could not be bought, the only other recourse was to try and soil his reputation. Then wait for PAS members to rush over to Pakatan Harapan.

But that to started to unravel as Datuk Seri Hadi Awang has brought a lawsuit against Sarawak Report for the false claim.

The whole idea was to try and drive a wedge between PAS and UMNO as there is a fear on the part of the DAP of these to political parties working together for the good of the nation.

Fortunately, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Datuk Seri Hadi Abdul Awang are wise and see through this amaturish tactic(s) forged by the Pakatan opposition.

Pakatan’s attempt to make UMNO and PAS uncomfortably to work together for the good of Malaysia either officially or unofficially has failed. Just like the many fabrications they have made against the Prime Minister.

Pakatan has built their plans to win G14 and take Putrajaya with substandard ability and poor quality; so there is is little surprise for Malaysians to see those plans unravelling like a cheap suite!

Prime Minister Najib Razak; Leadership Forged by Fire!

GST

Malaysians may not fully see or understand it, but Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Razak is someone whose leadership has been forged by fire.

And in some quirky way, those that make up the DAP-led Pakatan opposition played a role; even though that was not their intent.  After all, why would they want to make the person that they wanted to remove from office stronger?

That is not to say that Najib did not already have the gifts of a good leader; but what had been slung at him only served in the forging process.

In some cases you have someone who looks like they have what it takes to do the job, but when things get difficult they buckle under the strain of the responsibility.

That has not been the case with Najib. Throughout the slanderous storm, he remained calm, cool and collected; preferring to stay away from the mud rather than wallow in it.

Prime Minister Najib Razak’s refusal to wallow in the mud with those who attacked him only seemed to invite his detractors to continue the onslaught.  However, it was all to no avail as the Prime Minister was focused on the bigger picture; navigating Malaysia through the global economic downturn.

Not only was the Prime Minister tasked with navigating the economy; he also had to take the lead in maintain a stable social environment for all Malaysians; regardless of political or religious affiliation.

It is incumbent that when Malaysians look back over the past few years, thought should be given to how the Prime Minister and his government worked to keep Malaysia moving forward on a stable economic course.  Najib kept getting stronger even during the DAP-led Pakatan opposition’s most slanderous attacks without wavering.

So the question becomes; could Najib have still accomplished all that he has had he not been attacked to the degree he was?

Yes, he could have and that is a plus for Malaysia and Malaysians; because Prime Minister Najib’s leadership has been forged by fire!

Barisan Nasional Victories in Last Year’s By-Elections May Prove this Saying True “if it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it”

Malaysiamosic

There is a growing possibility that Barisan Nasional victories in last year’s by-elections in Sarawak, Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar may prove the saying “if it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it” true.

As many can remember, before the by-elections had taken place in Sarawak, Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar, the DAP-led opposition machinery was in full swing putting out propaganda against Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Razak.  The purpose of the proposition was fold.

One (1) to create the impression in the international community that Malaysia was a failed nation.

Two (2) there was hope that by creating a boogieman it would drive a wedge between Malaysians.

The problem was that neither tactic worked.  With regards to the first point, (Malaysia supposedly a failed nation) foreign investment did not stop.   On the contrary, it increased as was outlined mentioned in my last blog.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/12/13/prime-minister-najib-is-finishing-2017-the-way-he-started-it-active-and-strong/

Further to that, the number of visitors to Malaysia reached an all time high even with the doom and gloom they opposition was preaching.

Read what Lim Sian See had written as reported by The Third Force.

https://www.thethirdforce.net/amazing-how-a-failing-country-with-such-a-bad-reputation-has-so-many-travellers/

Even before the above reports came about the people in Sarawak, Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar knew that there was something fundamentally wrong with all the negative and divisive messages that the DAP-led Pakatan opposition was putting out.

As things have turned out, Malaysians have given team Barisan Nasional what could be said to be a mandate to continue driving Malaysia’s economy and stable social structure.

Since those electoral victories, Malaysia’s economy has continued to move forward even in light of the global slowdown.

In looking back at the results in Sarawak, Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar, is it possible that what had taken place is a snapshot of voter sentiment for the upcoming 14th general election; “if it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it”!

Najib and Barisan Nasional; Social Engineers Building Bridges for the Future!

PMBN

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Barisan Nasional are like social engineers who are building bridges for the future.

There is a quote that pretty much encapsulates what the above means.  It goes like this:

I like to see myself as a bridge builder; that is me building bridges between people, between races, between cultures, between politics, trying to find common ground.

T.D. Jakes

When one looks at the Prime Minister along with Barisan Nasional is doing, the quote pretty much sums it up; build bridges.

Of course any civil engineer would tell you that building bridges is never easy.  There are many decisions and factors which come into play when building bridges.  The team of engineers work together to find the best solution to assist people to move from their present position to where the ultimately would like to go.

That has been Prime Minister Najib’s goal since taking the helm of leadership.  He as well those comprising team Barisan Nasional work together to build bridges that all Malaysians can cross; regardless of ethnicity, religious belief or social economic background.

The work cannot be undertaken lightly; careful planning is necessary when building something which everyone wants to last.  As such, those given the task can ill afford to be distracted by those who would seek to turn positive results in the economy and strengthened ties abroad into something negative.

The government has to work to keep Malaysia moving forward in areas that will help its growth.  However, at the same time the government must guard against influences which could damage the harmony that has been built here.

It is this moderate approach which has allowed Malaysia to be able voice out wrongs being committed to the Rohingya and Palestinians while at the same time allowing those here in Malaysia to practice their beliefs in peace.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/12/10/good-to-see-umno-in-moderate-mode/

So the choice Malaysians will have to make in the upcoming 14th general election will be to allow the government to continue building bridges to economic prosperity and social stability or travel down a murky road of uncertainty.

Prime Minister Najib and team Barisan Nasional having already embarked on what was found in T. D Jakes quote:

They see themselves as social engineers and bridge builders; building bridges between people, between races, between cultures, between politics, trying to find common ground.

Lim Kit Siang uses rhetoric about Moderate and Extremist Islam to sure up his voter base!

Kit-Siang-Beer

Lim Kit Siang realizes that his DAP-led Pakatan opposition has about as much chance to win the 14th general election as there is for a winter blizzard to engulf Malaysia.

Realizing that the battle that DAP-led Pakatan was never really in is lost; Lim Kit Siang is trying to sure up his base.  Therefore, what other way to do that than trying to put fear of an extremist Islamic bogeyman in the hearts and minds of those he wants to keep in his corner.

Lim Kit Siang is trying to give the impression that Muslims in Malaysia should accept what he believes is moderate Islam.  No doubt Lim Kit Siang’s version of Islam is the acceptance of beer festivals, same sex marriages and the whole LGBT agenda.   Conversely, in Lim Kit Siang’s version of moderate Islam, praying and fasting would be optional; as the fundamentals of the faith would give way to: Do as you please.

Having lived here over the years, Lim Kit Siang knows that Malaysia’s Muslims by and far, do not fall under what one would categorize as extremist.

The term extremist within itself has been overly used for the sole purpose of creating fear; which seems to be why Lim Kit Siang is using it as some sort of last ditched effort.

Political parties in the West have used the term extremist in conjunction with Islam in the run up to national elections to garner votes.

Now that Lim Kit Siang sees that his DAP-led opposition is on the brink of a major loss in the general election, he wants to make sure that he is still has seat at the political table.  To do this he has resorted to insinuating that there is an extremist Islam lurking in Malaysia and that he can serve as a vanguard against the onslaught of extremism.

So what makes Lim Kit Siang an authority on Islam?

Has he taken a correspondence course on Islam which outlined what is moderate and what is extreme?  This must be the case as he is now sounding the alarm to warm Malaysians about extremism in Islam.

So in Lim Kit Siang’s acceptable version of Islam is beer festivals, same sex marriages and LGBT lifestyles as the norm; and those Muslims who speak out against any of those activities are extremist.

Seeing the writing on the wall, Lim Kit Siang knows that his DAP-led opposition has as much chance of winning the 14th general election as there is for a blizzard to engulf Malaysian.  That is why he is using rhetoric about moderate and extremist Islam; he wants to sure up his voter base!

 

Mahathir Like Mugabe Must Face The Inevitable!

MT

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.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/nov/21/robert-mugabe-resigns-as-president-of-zimbabwe

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.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/15/why-does-mukhriz-need-a-safe-seat-ansara/

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!

Pakatan Harapan; The Politics of ‘What if’!

LAM

In DAP-led Pakatan Harapan politics, just like in life there are a lot of ‘What ifs’.

These are the various musings people make when they reflecting on the current state of events in their lives.

In life there are those who look at those around them who have achieved a degree of success and wonder: What if I had applied myself more; wouldn’t my situation be better than it is now?

What if I were born in another country, different ethnicity, taller or richer, wouldn’t I be… yada yada yada; you know how it goes.

Similarly now that Malaysia is gearing up for the 14th general election; there is probably a lot of musing, self reflection and kicking oneself in the pants taking place among those in Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition who have their ‘what ifs’.

When looking back over the strategy of allowing Tun Mahathir and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) join DAP-led Pakatan, Lim Kit Siang may be thinking at this crucial time; what if I had rebuffed the idea of allowing Tun Mahathir and PPBM join?

Lim Kit Siang’s may also be reflecting on how he could have capitalized on that fact that Tun Mahathir after leaving UMNO did not really having a base.  He (LKS) could have continued going after him over BMF forex and other contentious issues that are tied to Tun Mahathir.  Instead of doing that, Lim Kit Siang looks like (and rightly so) someone who placed price before his principles; and now he is paying the price!

Tun Mahathir who to this day does not look fully comfortable with Lim Kit Siang (no matter how they try to display their bromance publically) has his own list of what ifs.

Tun Mahathir could be thinking: what if I had not tried to bully Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib the same way I did Tun Dato’ Sri Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi;  Mukhriz and I would still be in UMNO and not outside it of it secretly wishing we were still in

Perhaps if Tun Mahathir had employed a different strategy he would not have had to swallow all of those things he has said about Lim Kit Siang, DAP and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim.  Well, in the case of the latter he did not swallow as he never did come out and say he does not commit sodomy.

Adding to Tun Mahathir’s what ifs:

What if Mukhriz were more ………,………,……..and ……..(fill in the blanks); wouldn’t he be able to achieve political success without riding on his father’s name.  And what if Mukhriz family name was not Mahathir would he even be in a political discussion at all not to mention a conversation about becoming a future Prime Minister?

Lastly, I am placing the snippets on Lim Guan Eng and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim together as they may soon be sharing a common mailing address.

Lim Guan Eng what if: What if I had not l thought Malays were not intelligent enough to figure out how I purchased my bungalow; and what if I had not criticised PAS on how they govern and handle floods in Kelantan.

Datuk Anwar Ibrahim what if: What if I had not continued to act upon those unnatural desires for males that landed me in jail to which Tun Mahathir knows all too well.

And what if I my semen could have magically disappeared from the annals of hiStory like those billions Mahathir talked about; my life would certainly be different today.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/11/08/anwar-was-hoping-for-a-bit-of-magic-from-the-court/

Realizing that the 14th general election is only a stone’s throw away, Pakatan Harapan finds itself immersed in thinking about the politics of ‘What if’!
