Desperate Pakatan Gasping for Air!

The Pakatan Harapan coalition is gasping for air as their hopes sinking in front of their eyes.

DAP-led Pakatan thought their enemy was Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, but the were and are dead wrong. Their really enemy is time and it is carrying their inevitable demise toward them like a speed locomotive. Now they look like a deer seeing the trains lights approaching and are bewildered to what to do.

You see it written all on their faces; their planned victory party and maybe their coalition (if you want to call it that) are over.

The anticipated slaps on the back for having unseated Prime Minister Najib Razak will morph into fingers pointing and mouths frothing like those who are devoid of their faculties.

Perhaps it will all end up like Joceline Tan’s piece in The Star had written; yet instead of it being the Selangor government, the DAP-led Pakatan coalition will disintegrate.

DAP-led Pakatan has no more issues to hurl at the Prime Minister and their economic plans for the nation can only be described plans are borderline crazy.

Pakatan Harapan is drowning in the whirlpool of time and they are gasping for air just trying to survive the inevitable; the 14th general election!


Pakatan Harapan Just Going Through The Motions!

When what is collectively known as Pakatan Harapan realized that it would not be as easy as they fantasized to remove Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office they were left with only two choices; give up and look even more foolish after concocting fabrications to remove the Prime Minister or just go through the motions like couples in a bad marriage.

In looking at the DAP-led Pakatan opposition, it seems that they have chosen the latter; to just go through the motions.

That decision comes in the wake of not having any more slanderous bullets in which they can fire at Najib. Lim Kit Siang, Tun Mahathir and the other rag tsg assortment of players which make up Pakatan Harapan to their detriment truly believed that Prime Minister Najib Razak would buckle under the weight of false accusations.

It was like trying to get an innocent man or woman to admit to a crime they did not commit. No innocent person would do that.

That is why during the entire period DAP-led Pakatan was directly hurling accusations at the Prime Minister or using their news portal Sarawak Report, Prime Minister Najib Razak bidded his time and allowed the investigative process to run its course. Even the attempts to use the United States Department of Justice and U.K House of Commons came to naught.

1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was the only bullet in Pakatan’s gun and that bullet was a blank!

Now the rakyat by an large realizes that Pakatan Harapan tried to dupe them into believing unverified allegations.

Of course if Pakatan were to win the 14th general election they would come up with an excuse to why they can not find tangible evidence against the Prime Minister.

It would be the same as when former United States President George W. Bush joked about not finding weapons of mass destruction (WMD)

Malaysians will not allow themselves to have the proverbial wool pulled over their by DAP-led Pakatan’s lie of mass destruction (LMD) scare tactic.

Having exhausted 1MDB as an issue, DAP-led Pakatan can only do one of two things; give up and look even more foolish than they do now or just go through the motions until the elections.

It seems like they have chosen the latter; just go through the motions!

Thank Goodness for Pakatan Harapan!

Sometimes in life it is difficult to appreciate what you have until you place it next to what you might get.

So in that regard Malaysians are fortunate in having the unique opportunity to look at the chaos that surrounds DAP-led Pakatan so that the can see what they don’t want out of their government leadership.

DAP-led Pakatan has trouble even with their seat allocations so it is no surprise that it had taken them so long to come up with names for their prime minister and deputy prime minister designates.

From Pakatan Harapan’s own disarray in trying to operate as a coalition it does not take a stretch of the imagination to see what would happen, if they were to ever run the government; more stagnation and chaos!

The government while not perfect has not been running around like a chicken devoid of its head nor has it wasted the rakyat’s money on projects like the undersea tunnel.

Could the project be a big scam?

The underwater tunnel farce may prove to be yet another ill advised move by the present Penang Menteri Besar Lim Guan Eng like that of his ‘Bungled Bungalow’.

For the government’s part, the Prime Minister has taken both a systematic and pragmatic approach toward Malaysia’s growth. As a result, global investment shows confidence in what the Barisan Nasional government is achieving.

Barisan Nasional provides Experience, Stability and Growth!

DAP-led Pakatan offers Indecision, Chaos and fabrications.

So in that regard one must say thank goodness for Pakatan Harapan as their indecisiveness, chaos and propensity for fabricatjon gives Malaysians a unique opportunity to see how they would ruin Malaysia, if they formed the government.

Mahathir Has Already Lost His Popularity Contest with Najib!

Do you remember way back on March 14th 20016 when Tun Mahathir wanted a popularity contest to be held to prove that he is more popular than Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak?

KUALA LUMPUR, March 14 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today suggested Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak hold a national referendum to gauge which of the two has more popular support.

That was during the time that Tun Mahathir was still full of his self and believed that he through sheer will he could remove Najib from office.

It was not too long after that Tun Mahathir lack of popularity was apparent for all Malaysians to see.

Tun Mahathir believed that the Sarawak by-election would prove that he could swing the popular vote toward the DAP-led opposition. So one could almost say that Mahathir wanted to prove that he was popular among Malaysians as well as prove to the opposition that he and PPBM potential value to their cause.

The bloody aftermath of that by election showed just the opposite; Tun Mahathir was as popular as he deluded himself into believing. Of course the spin was Tun Mahathir did not put his full effort into that effort and that the resounding victory had nothing to do with Najib.

But then there came the Kuala Kangsar Sungai Besar by elections. And once again even with the specter of Tun Mahathir along with his love fest with Lim Kit Siang and Anwar Ibrahim there, the DAP-led opposition still lost.

And let us not forget the million signatures that Tun Mahathir was so proud to proclaim that he had. He certainly believed that those million signatures proved that he was more popular than the Najib.

The problem was that there were not a million signatures and that money was paid for data of names that he was so proud of.

Finally, the ultimate proof of Tun Mahathir’s lack of popularity was when he had to not only swallow all that he said about Datuk Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Kit Siang and the DAP, but to add to his humiliation he climbed into bed with them.

So looking back over the last few years, Tun Mahathir would be hard pressed to talk about being more popular than Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. After all the facts have shown that he (Mahathir) has already had the popularity contest(s) that he so desperately craved with Prime Minister Najib and lost on every one of them!

The 14th General Election; Pakatan’s Bitter Sweet Pill!

images (6a)

The 14th general election in all respects will be a bitter sweet pill for Pakatan Harapan.

The 14th general election will be bitter because things are not looking very promising for Pakatan Harapan. The divisions that have always been within the coalition are deepening.

To have an indication of the Pakatan’s discord, just read how Badrul Hisham Shaharin (Chegu Bard) explains it.

Beritadaily: “Some of those in the anti-Azmin faction are Rafizi Ramli (Pandan MP and PKR vice president), Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (PKR secretary general) and Nurul Izzah Anwar (Lembah Pantai MP and PKR vice president).

Click the link below to read the full excerpt

The Selangor Menteri Besar is well aware of the dog eat dog climate that exist in the Pakatan coalition; after all their coalition was born out of strife and chaos. This is no doubt why Azmin Ali is trying to find allies in PAS that will help him stay in office.

There was a time Azmin thought that he could solicit the help of Tun Mahathir to climb up the political ladder; but the former prime minister has only one shot and he is using that one shot to try and keep his son (Mukhriz) head above the water.

However, least we think Azmin Ali will be the recipient of the bitter pill we should also look a few components in the Pakatan coalition who are well aware that the bitter pill is coming with the 14th general election.

Mat Sabu and Amanah had a credible base when they were part of PAS, but lost that credibility after they were enticed to run over to the DAP. Now they (Amanah) are only seen as another assortment of puppets for Lim Kit Siang to parade before the Malays.

For former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin; what more can be said. Every time he looks at the seat that he once occupied he realizes that he was dupped!

The bitter pill for Mukhriz Mahathir is the realization that the 14th general election is it; there will be no encore. Mukhriz will only be listed as one of Mahathir’s children. A man who was thrust into politics, but like Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail does not have the tools or temperament.

Tun Mahathir bitter pill; knowing that he cannot build the dynasty that Lee Kwan Yee has; and perhaps that is why he (Mahathir) threw his hat back in the political ring. He knows that his son cannot carry the mantle, so he wants to go into the history books as being Prime Minister twice.

Lim Kit Siang’ bitter pill leading up to GE14 is Tun Mahathir. When you marry or partner with someone who you don’t like and who doesn’t like you, the results are never good; no matter the spin one tries to put on it.

Still it is not all doom and gloom for Pakatan Harapan. Where there is a Yin there’s a Yang. So where the 14th general election provides Pakatan Harapan with the bitter pill of defeat, it will also provide them with a sweet pill.

Their sweet pill is that Pakatan’s defeat in the election will be seen as payback for all the slanderous allegations which they brought forth against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and PAS president Hadi Abdul Awang.

Pakatan Making It Up As They Go Along!

The reality of Pakatan choosing both Tun Mahathir and Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail as their prime minister and deputy prime minister designates, shows that they are making things up as they go along.

Honestly, a headless chicken would seem to have more forward thinking than what Pakatan had been producing.

With the array of so called savvy politicians that are supposed to be part of their coalition, they could do no better than put forth someone who should be enjoying the better part of his retirement and a woman who for all means and purpose is probably a great mother and grandmother, but is clearly out of her depth in the political arena.

And that is the ticket that DAP-led Pakatan is offering.

What do they think people believe Tun Mahathir has the same juice he had when he could make things happen on his own?

Look at him now; he needs a turn key political infrastructure just to stay in the news. He is also holding out hope that this same political infrusteucture would be kind enough to offer his son (Mukheiz) an easy seat to contest in the 14th general election.

Well perhaps one should not say that Tun Mahathir is holding hope since it is believed that he paid RM1 Billion to Lim Kit Siang for that easy seat for Mukhriz as well as other top dog favors.

There is no doubt that Tun Mahathir would have preferred to not dig into his war chest for that expenditure, but as he could not remove Najib on his own he had to improvise on the fly; and part of that improvisation required him to climb into bed with his enemy Lim Kit Siang.

As was mentioned, Tun Mahathir doesn’t have the political juice he once wielded, so he like the rest of his Pakatan coalition cohorts has to wing it.

But winging it or making it up as they go along should not come as a big surprise; Pakatan’s whole political strategy is based on winging it. That is why they cannot offer Malaysians anything better than a pseudo promise to repeal the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and to get rid of highway tolls.

Anything beyond those two would just have Pakatan doing what the government of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is already doing. And as the old saying goes; If it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it.

So with nothing else to offer Malaysians, the Pakatan opposition has to make it up as they go along and hope that Malaysians don’t call them on the fact that they are as politically naked of plans as the emperor who had no clothes!

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!
