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.

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!

DAP-led Pakatan is Selling Fool’s Gold!

images (6a)

Years ago during my youth, I remember finding a rock that for all the world looked like gold.  The light seemed to dance off the small flakes as the sunlight hit them.  While my dear mother appreciated the gift that I gave her, she did let me know that the rock was referred to as fool’s gold.


When I think of what the DAP-led Pakatan opposition is trying to sell, fool’s gold quickly comes to mind.  The DAP-led opposition tries to portray itself as the real thing; but everything they do seems quite devoid of value; in other words fake.

Look at how they try to pass themselves off as a coalition that is led by Malay.  Yet, everyone know that it is Lim Kit Siang and his DAP which really calls the shots.  But the whole idea is sell the fake image that they hope Malay voters will buy.

In order to remove Malaysia’s democratically elected leader (Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Razak) the DAP-led Pakatan opposition and Tun Mahathir prior to his officially joining their coalition, resorted to a smearing Najib with false allegations about misappropriation of funds.

Beyond the obvious reason (Power grab) for the DAP-led Pakatan opposition to resort to their all out smear campaign against Prime Minister Najib Razak; the other reason for the onslaught of lies and innuendos is because they (DAP-led Pakatan opposition) had absolutely nothing else to offer the rakyat.

They have barely managed to hold their coalition together and despite all their posturing to give the impression that they had within their ranks a Prime Minister designate, it became crystal clear that their theatre was empty.  It was not until Lim Kit Siang’s former enemy cum bromance Tun Mahathir joined that they started putting his name out as their possible choice; as if they have someone else.

The DAP-led Pakatan opposition have put forth no policies or programs beyond those giveaways which they are hoping will generate votes.  Let’s call it for what it is; fool’s gold

Conversely, the government led by Prime Minister Najib Razak is on a consistent basis making policy and bringing forth programs that benefit all Malaysians,

It is the continuation of economic growth and stability that the Prime Minister is holding up as his record in the run up to the 14th general election; a record that has proven to have value.

The DAP-led Pakatan opposition like to bring forth the glitter, but at the end of the day, they have nothing.

In my mother’s explanation about the rock there was the lesson; all that glitters is not gold and what DAP-led Pakatan is selling is nothing but fool’s gold!

Lim Kit Siang Wishes He Could Turn Back the Hands of Time!


After the Royal Commission of Inquiry findings were made known, Lim Kit Siang probably wishes he could turn back the hands of time.

Based on the findings former prime minister Tun Mahathir, his finance minister Datuk Anwar Ibrahim were involved with concealing Bank Negara Malaysia’s (BNM) massive forex loses.  Former Bank Negara advisor Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakob was named as “principally liable for criminal breach of trust”.

However for the purpose of this writing on the first two (Tun Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim) will be referenced.

Why?  Because Lim Kit Siang placed all his hope on those two eggs while forgetting about their cracks.

That’s right.  Lim Kit Siang really thought he struck gold and had a winning combo with first, Anwar Ibrahim and then Tun Mahathir.

But then things started to unravel and unravel fast.

First there was Anwar being zipped up in Sungai Buloh prison because he could not keep his own pants zipped up.  Then there was the disastrous Kajang Move which ended with PAS extricating itself from the opposition coalition.

After all of that drama Lim Kit Siang thought he made a politically savvy move by opening the door for Tun Mahathir, his son Mukhriz, former deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and others that make up Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia to join the DAP-Pakatan opposition.

While Lim Kit Siang was in the midst of celebrating his dream team that would carry DAP-led Pakatan to Putrajaya, the dream team started looking more like a nightmare.

Even when it looked certain that Anwar Ibrahim would be sent to prison, Lim Kit Siang thought he could weather the storm.  Then there came the news of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin digging around in another man’s garden.  Of course such a scandal made Muhyiddin Yassin damaged goods and out of any serious conversation of becoming Prime Minister.

Kit Siang believing that Tun Mahathir could put out the fires that DAP-led Pakatan was facing, made the latter ‘Top dog’.  But now it turns out that the top dog is now in the ‘dog house’ over the BNM forex scandal.

Not only does the Royal Commission of Inquiry finding say that Mahathir is involved with covering up the Billions that Bank Negara lost in the forex market, but his then finance minister Anwar Ibrahim is also said to be involved in the cover up.

For decades Lim Kit Siang has been screaming for an investigation as he believed (in the past) that Tun Mahathir was somehow involved in the cover up of the Billions lost.  But due to what he thought was political expedience; Lim Kit Siang was either quiet or dismissive at the beginning of the BNF investigative process.  Now it is too late for him to get rid of Tun Mahathir as it would appear that he is throwing the baby out with the bath water.

For his part, Lim Kit Siang can only wish that he could turn back the hands of time to a time before he and his DAP cronies were discovered to have cheated to secure top leadership party positions.

He also wishes he could go back to a time before he linked up with Anwar Ibrahim after learning that the latter’s strange taste could someday come back and bite someone in the arse.

And he really wishes he could go back to a time when he was attacking Tun Mahathir over BNF and other deeds instead of having his people serve as Mahathir apologist.

But Lim Kit Siang can only wish because every time he looks in the mirror or at his son (Lim Guan Eng) or Anwar Ibrahim, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Tun Mahathir he will see is a mass of politically damaged goods!


In Pakatan’s So-Called Coalition of Equals, Some are More Equal than Others!


Pakatan Harapan likes to laud that it is a coalition made up of equals, but as recent time has shown it is not as equal as it portrays itself to be; as some are more equal than others.

The recent event in Penang where the DAP-led government cast PKR to the side in favor of one of their own shows that all is not right in DAP-led coalition.

In a NST (New Straits Time) article; People’s Alternative Party (PAP)  vice president Rahmad Isahak accused DAP of being arrogant and belittling PKR despite PKR holding ten (10 ) seats in Penang’s legislative assembly.

The PAP vice president (Rahmad Isahak) made the remarks after the PKR Bunga assemblyman Cheah Kah Pang was prevented from handling the flood aid.  Instead the DAP-led Penang government gave the task to one of their own; the Pulau Tikus assemblyman, Yap Soo Huey.

While there is no crime to look out for those in your own political party by throwing them a bone or two; there is a problem of perception when there has been so much hoopla made over how equal the DAP-led Pakatan opposition and then they turn around and pull what they did in Penang.

Making such a move/switch was a slap in the face to Cheah Kah Pang in much the same way Lim Kit Siang getting Tun Mahathir to be his (LKS) DAP-led Pakatan opposition chairman was a slap in the face to PKR’s Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Azmin Ali, Datuk Dr. Wan Azizah Ismail and Amanah’s Mat Sabu.

However politically misguided those in PKR and AMANAH may be, them not having a chance to be chairman or chairwoman only proves that there are only a select few in Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan coalition that are more equal than others.

Many could see how Mat Sabu and others were coaxed out of PAS to form Amanah; only then to be treated more like an awkward prop that is to be displayed and less like a partner in the so-called coalition.

Now compare that to PPBM.

Even though the role of Tun Mahathir and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) is much the same as that of AMANAH and even PKR, the equality equation seems to be more skewed in Tun Mahathir’s direction.

There is no way for Lim Kit Siang justify Tun Mahathir’s elevated status as a result of his long years of service to his (LKS) opposition because Tun Mahathir long years of service has been fighting against Lim Kit Siang and his evangelical plans for Malaysia.

Yet even with the many years of antagonism between them, Lim Kit Siang still made Tun Mahathir more equal than other coalition members; proving that he (LKS) defines equality.

Therefore with the DAP leading the coalition, the events surrounding the Penang flood aid disbursement should be of no surprise; it just proves that in a coalition of so-called equals, some are more equal than others!
