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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

 

 

Pakatan Doesn’t Trust Each Other; How Can They be Trusted to Govern Malaysia!

AzminAli Rafizi

If Pakatan Harapan is having all types of trust issues among themselves; how can they expect Malaysians to trust them with the nation?

Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali went behind DAP-led Pakatan’s back to try to pull PAS back into the Pakatan opposition camp even though DAP-led Pakatan issued an edict saying there was to be no contact with PAS.

It seems that Azmin knows that without PAS, not only will Pakatan have little chance in the next (GE14) general election, but there is a great possibility that he may be out as the Selangor Menteri Besar.

Not wanting to face that prospects of being jobless, Azmin Ali has for some time been trying to entice PAS back into the fold.

http://english.astroawani.com/politics-news/azmin-invites-pas-return-fold-104828

Again he has been doing this against the orders of the coalition.  Therefore, one has to ask; does the Selangor Menteri Besar have cart blanch to go against coalition wishes or are his actions systematic of how dysfunctional things really are in Pakatan Harapan?

Unfortunately for Azmin Ali and DAP-led Pakatan his effort has not provided the dividends that he had hoped; PAS has recently rebuffed DAP-led Pakatan’s overtures by stating that it never really wanted cooperation with their coalition.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/pas-leader-says-party-never-wanted-cooperation-with-pakatan-harapan/

Of course PAS saying no will do little to dissuade DAP-led Pakatan. They (PH) know that the general election is probably months away and still find themselves in desperate need of Malay votes.  As such, don’t be surprised if you hear about Azmin once again going against the coalition’s directive and try to coerce PAS into returning.

But Azmin Ali is not alone with it comes to running roughshod and doing one’s own thing in the DAP-led Pakatan opposition.  alone.

Recently, Latheefa Koy has come out and said that Rafizi Ramli was the architect behind the now infamous ‘Kajang Move’.

You can read the sordid details in the following link.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/oops-i-didnt-think-of-that/

Latheefa had seemed to be willing to hold on to this info until Rafizi started to publically point the finger elsewhere.

It seems that Rafizi has not heard the expressions; Let sleeping dogs lie or don’t stir up the hornets’ nest!

With the combination of political backstabbing, breaking rank, infighting and airing out dirty laundry in the public; one has to wonder how a coalition in such disarray can ever hope to govern a country when it is very apparent that they do not have enough discipline to manage events within their own coalition.

Perhaps Datuk Seri Hadi Awang saying that PAS does not trust Pakatan Harapan due to the unfolding events in Pakatan and other issues PAS feels are important.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/pas-does-not-trust-pakatan-harapan-hadi/

Given the events which are taking place in Pakatan Harapan, it is of no surprise that PAS does not trust them.  In fact, if Pakatan can’t trust each other; how can Malaysians trust them with the nation?

 

 

Sarawak Report; Doing Pakatan’s Dirty Work!

pakatan-harapan-image

The recent news of the DAP-led opposition’s news portal (Sarawak Report) stalking Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, the wife of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should not come as a complete surprise.

Having failed to come up on any dirt on Prime Minister Najib Razak, the opposition’s next move is to try and find something to smear his wife (Datin Rosmah), other members of his family or those he is close to with.

The Sarawak news ‘reporter’s actions toward Datin Rosmah amounted to trying to bait her so that she would react.  This is similar to what the Paparazzi in the USA do when they try to get a celebrity to lash out after being harassed.   The reporter usually hurls out some outlandish claim ir some slanderous claim in order to elicit a reaction from their stalked target; then the reporters news portal prints it along with a salacious headline

However, a visiting head of state or their spouse should be afforded more respect than to be treated in such a manner.

The total lack of decorum that Sarawak Report’s reporters had shown toward the first lady of Malaysia is rightly termed low class.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/sarawak-report-stalks-pms-wife-in-uk-minister-calls-them-low-class

In Raja Petra Kamarudin ‘No Holds Barred’ article, RPK eludes to Mat Salleh (White) privilege when it comes to dealing the 90 plus percent of the world who are not Mat Salleh.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/the-hypocrites-in-sarawak-report/

It appears that the DAP-led opposition’s foreign news mouth piece believe that they have been granted some moral divine right to treat the wife (Datin Rosmah Mansor) of Malaysia’s Prime Minister Prime Minister with utter disrespect.

It almost goes without saying that the opposition would not dare use their local hirelings to do the same thing in Malaysia that had been done in the UK for fear of the impending backlash; that is why this type of action had to take place during Datin Mansor’s visit to the UK.

Now there are those who speculate that what had transpired in the UK further proves how desperate the opposition has become in their effort to damage the image of Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Sarawak Report reporters have shown not only a total lack of respect toward Datin Mansor, but their actions also show the total lack of respect they have for the people of Malaysia and their symbols.

So what can we expect after this; will Sarawak report feel that it is also acceptable to stalk or slander Malaysia’s royalty when that serves their interest.

It seems that In the run up to the 14th general election, the DAP-opposition will stop at nothing in their attempt to throw dirt on the Prime Minister; even if that means using hirelings like Sarawak report to throw it!
