Pakatan’s Malay Face Failed to Deliver the Goods!

DAPMalayfaces

Often when a sports team wants to reach the next level, they will go out and bring in veterans to help them achieve that goal.

That is exactly what Lim Kit Siang had done when he brought in Mat Sabu and Amanah as well as the ‘3 M’ package consisting of Tun Mahathir, former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Mukhriz Mahathir along with dwindling remains of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM).

Having them on board was supposed to be Lim Kit Siang’s Pakatan opposition Key to the Malay vote and victory in the upcoming 14th general election.  But as happened previously, Pakatan Harapan’s Malay face (in the collective sense) failed to deliver the goods; the Malay crowd.

In the weeks and days leading up to the ‘Love Malaysia End Kleptocracy’ rally, DAP-led Pakatan most certainly got wind that the crowd size would be small, which is probably why they turned down using the stadium; it have been would have been too obvious.

Realizing that they did not have the numbers, Lim Kit Siang and company were probably hoping that the police would stop or interfere with their event.  In that way they could play victim and say that the masses were turned back thus having an excuse for the low turnout.

However the police allowed the event to take place without interference.  In doing so, it was very obvious that there was a weak turnout.  In addition to the events lack of size, the rally seemed to mirror Bersih in that it mainly the Chinese that show up.

However even that is not saying much as Lim Kit Siang also had trouble pulling in ‘his crowd.’

So the overall lack of numbers makes one think:

Was the small size of the crowd due to Malaysians getting tired of the same old rhetoric that Pakatan opposition spews whenever they have the chance?

Or…

Do Malaysians find it hypercritical that the very same DAP-led Pakatan that has organized the ‘Love Malaysia End Kleptocracy’ rally has within it ranks those who paint a negative picture Malaysia internationally as well as having ‘top dogs’ who been accused of kleptocracy?

Perhaps the message that was being sent to the DAP-led opposition is; first clean up your own house before accusing someone else of having a dirty house.

A dirty house (DAP-led Pakatan) along with dirty politics may be the reason why their Malay faces failed to do what they were brought into the coalition to do; deliver the goods (Malays)!

The Strange Disappearance of Muhyiddin Yassin!

muhyiddin

It is strange how Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who is supposed to be high up in the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysian (PPBM) and DAP-led Pakatan Harapan pecking order has virtually vanished; just like those Billions that Tun Mahathir is fond of talking about.

Muhyiddin Yassin seems to continually find himself disengaged from what is taking place.  By way of example; during the latter period of his time as deputy Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin would refer to the local newspapers to find out the latest news.

When one looks back at his tenure as deputy Prime Minister; Muhyiddin Yassin’s joining up with Tun Mahathir served in removing dead weight from UMNO; now he has become Mahathir’s.

When Tun Mahathir made Muhyiddin Yassin the PPBM President, it would have been the perfect opportunity for him to reinvent himself.  It could have been a showcase for him as President to take the fledgling political party and grow to revival UMNO; the party that he was removed from.  But Muhyiddin failed at the task; he still could not serve as the Malay magnet that even Lim Kit Siang hoped he could be.

One would think that as a former deputy Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin would at the very least be able to be a magnet to get Tun Mahathir those million signatures the latter wanted.  However doing that time of need Muhyiddin Yassin was MIA (Missing in Action).

So now Muhyiddin is deputy President in the DAP-led Pakatan leadership structure.   As deputy President it seemed that his first task was to do what he has done while serving as deputy Prime Minister and President of PPBM; nothing of note.

It takes real talent or the complete absence of it to be a total non-factor when placed in a position or positions that would bring out the best in most people.

Or maybe Muhyiddin Yassin is serving his task; to be yet another Muslim face that Lim Kit Siang can parade around in his attempt to catch the Malay vote.  Other than that, Muhyiddin Yassin does not seem to have any relevancy on today’s political scene.

In fact, it was only after seeing a photo of the former deputy Prime Minister that I thought of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s lack of presence on the political stage.

Or perhaps it is not strange if one considers that he is doing what he always does; disappears just like all those Billions that Tun Mahathir is so fond of talking about!

 

Lim Guan Eng Can’t Rescue Papa Lim From the Heat!

Lims

It seems that Lim Guan Eng is trying to deflect the heat off his father (Lim Kit Siang) by making a statement that UMNO and PAS are speaking the same language.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/10/09/umno-pas-speaking-same-language-says-guan-eng/

There seems to be little doubt that Lim Kit Siang has not had a moment of rest after Malaysia Today exposed the RM1 Billion bribe that he accepted from no other than Tun Mahathir.

After blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin posted the news of the alleged bribe, suspicion has surrounded Kit Siang to whether he had decided to sell the remainder of his dignity in exchange for a cushy life post politics; after all a politician’s salary pales in comparison to RM1 Billion.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-bribed-kit-siang-rm1-billion-to-become-pakatans-chairman/

Perhaps Lim Kit Siang sees the writing on the wall and realizes that it is almost ‘Game Over’ for DAP-led Pakatan and it might be a good time to feather his nest so to speak; and who can deny that RM1 Billion makes for a very comfortable nest!

Unfortunately the aged politician never thought that such a secret would ever see the light of day; in much the same way he thought that the secret pact between he and Tun Mahathir would never be exposed.

Remember the one where Mukhriz would become the Prime Minister and he would be the deputy Prime Minister / Finance Minister.

The following was taken from Malaysia Mail Online

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 3 —Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim today challenged Datuk Muhkriz Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang to make statutory declarations denying a secret arrangement on their alleged ambitions for Putrajaya.

In case you missed it; click the link below to read the full article.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/tunku-aziz-challenges-mukhriz-kit-siang-to-disprove-alleged-secret-deal

It seems that every time Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir enter some sort of secret deal, it gets exposed before the ink has even dried on the agreement.

Now with the latest revelation that Tun Mahathir paid Lim Kit Siang for the DAP-led Pakatan chairmanship position and the assurance of a very winnable seat for Mukhriz; Kit Siang’s problems seem to be mounting.

So today it is of no surprise that Lim Guan Eng tried to deflect news away from his father troubles by saying that UMNO and PAS speak the same language.

Perhaps the whole point of Lim Guan Eng ‘News Flash’  is to try to create friction, backlash or tension between the two political parties for of all things ‘Speaking the same language’ of all things.  Call in the U.N Peace Keepers.

UN

As has been mentioned before; PAS and UMNO are free to cooperate with whomever their beliefs and desire for the good of the nation lines up with.

In turn, Lim Guan Eng should not be upset that PAS does not want to join onto a Beer Festivals, Gay Parades or other similar activities which they have nothing in common.

Lim Guan Eng has to realize that he can’t rescue papa Lim from the heat is facing no more than Lim Kit Siang can’t rescue him from the inevitable.

Lim Kit Siang’s Future Expenditures Will Be Under a Microscope! 

Lim Kit Siang’s Future Expenditures Will Be Under a Microscope! 

The delimma that Lim Kit Siang now faces is that all his future expenditures will be looked at under a financial microscope. 

You see, there is a problem that accompanies suddenly coming into a lot of money; people will want to know where the money came from.  The questions they will ask will be much like those Tun Mahathir asked with respect to the Middle East gift that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak received.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/07/26/mahathir-i-know-contents-of-probe-into-rm2-6-billion/

Mahathir wanted to know the origin of not only the money from pruning to transfer and all the details and stops in between, but he wanted to know the ins, outs and why’s of the gift’s donor.

In essence, Mahathir wanted a proctologist type of exam carried out; and as things turned out the money was a gift.

So Lim Kit Siang may need to visit his buddy Anwar Ibrahim in Sungei Buloh prison to get some KY Jelley because he will have to explain any high ticket items that a politician could not afford given their salary.

How will Lim Kit Siang be able to explain a shift in lifestyle that resembles that of Mahathir and his family.  

As Malaysia Today reported; Mahathir and his family’s wealth is beyond what he earned during his 22 years as Prime Minister. 

On top of that Mahathir’s children are all billionaires and are listed in Forbes’ list of top 100 richest Malaysians. Mahathir himself has billions in investments all over the world, even in a hotel resort within walking distance from his house in Mines. And what about the horse ranch in Argentina and the numerous apartments in London worth tens of millions each?

Click the link below to read the full article.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-tok-kok-yet-again/

Even if Lim Kit Siang says that the RM1 Billion is an inheritance that a Chinese emperor years passed left him; he would have to prove it in the same way Mahathir wanted to know the minute details of the Middle East (Saudi) gift.

Lim Kit Siang will not be able say that he won one or the combination of all the local lotteries because the odds of winning all of them would be astronomical.  In addition, it would have people believjnv that the winning numbers are chosen in advance. 

Nevertheless all is not loss; there are options for Lim Kit Siang.  He can say the RM1 Billion is a scholarship from Oxford university.   

He could also say that it was given to him to start ‘How to win a party election by fraud’ schools. 

If none of those work; Kit Siang can always get advice from ‘Sad-Dick’, if he needs more ideas on what to do.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-uses-sad-dick-to-attack-pms-psywar-brains/

But what Lim Kit Siang will not be able to do is spend beyond what he earns as a politician as his as well as his family’s future expenditures will looked at under a financial microscope.  

There seems to be only two (2) options for Kit Siang.

1. Emperor Lim Kit Siang can leave it as an inheritance for some future heir 5 generations down the line or… 

2. Lim Kit Siang can throw Mahathir under the bus by saying that he accepted the bribe as some elaborate sting operation to prove what he had been saying all those years about Mahathir is true.

The only option he does not have with the reported RM1 Billion total from Mahathir in exchange for the Pakatan Harapan chairmanship position and a safe seat for Mukhriz Mahathir to contest is spending it. 

Any unusual spending will only invite financial proctologist to open pandora’s box!
 

Lim Kit Siang’s New Mantra; Show Me the Money!

SMTM

It appears that Lim Kit Siang has a new mantra; show me the money; and it’s a RM 1Billion mantra that raises questions that needs to be addressed.

After all, if he and his ilk can raise questions about money Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is supposed to have then it is only fare that he be subjected the same scrutiny.

Malaysia Today blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) has written a post titled “Mahathir Bribed Kit Siang RM 1 Billion To Become Pakatan’s Chairman.”

It is a very juicy read that now only covers Tun Mahathir wanting Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition’s chairmanship post; but that he also wanted a safe seat for Mukhriz to contest in the upcoming general election.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-bribed-kit-siang-rm1-billion-to-become-pakatans-chairman/

The things RM 1Billion will buy you these days.

Tun Mahathir knows that Mukhriz does not have what it takes to win a seat on his own merit so Mahathir wants one gift wrapped.  Now Mahathir wanting a safe seat for Mukhriz should not come as a surprise as he always wanted and still wants Mukhriz to have an easy path to Putrajaya.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/07/17/nazri-mahathir-sore-that-his-son-didnt-come-out-tops/

What the story of the RM 1 Billion bribe tells us is that squeaky clean Pakatan Harapan is not as squeaky clean as Lim Guan Eng tries to portray; case in point; Lim Guan Eng and his bungalow scandal.

Now that the Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir’s deal has been leaked; what will they do?

At some point both Lim Kit Siang and Tun Mahathir have to address allegation or even sue, if what was written about the bribe is not true.

And there is another problem.  If Lim Kit Siang contests in Penang due to his son’s imprisonment and Mukhriz ends up contesting Gelang Patah, then everyone will know that it is not a coincidence.  In fact, any safe seat Lim Kit Siang gives Mukhriz for all of his hard work for DAP-led Pakatan will be viewed as part of that RM1 Billion bribe.

Lim Kit Siang had better prepare to answer an avalanche of questions; where the burden of proof will be on him to prove whether the allegation about him accepting a RM1 Billion bribe is false.

Now it is becoming clearer why Lim Kit Siang has changed his stance on Tun Mahathir; he has adopted a ‘mantra’ found in the movie Jerry Maguire; ‘Show Me The Money’!

Pakatan Harapan; Yes to Beer, No to RUU355!

LKSbeervsRUU355

There is something seriously wrong with DAP-led Pakatan Harapan when they want Malaysians and especially Malays to accept Beer Festivals, but yet reject PAS President Hadi Awang’s Private member’s Bill (RUU355).

Apparently that is the type of liberalism that Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition wants for Malaysia.  One in which vices are encouraged while the idea of strengthening laws that are already in the books for Muslims is discouraged.

Those having views aligned with Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-opposition see the rejection of the Beer festival as imposing the values of one community over that of another.

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2017/09/20/beer-fest-rejection-implies-values-one-community-superior-rest-cenbet

Read Lim Guan Eng’s comments in the following link:

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2017/09/20/support-beer-festival-both-sides-political-divide-updated

Those who are favor of the festival love to preach about one community trying to impose their values on another, yet what did they do when PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang introduced his Private Members Bill (RUU355); they were up in arms and hell bent against it.

Pure hypocrisy!

Lim Kit Siang and those aligned with his way of thinking went on a campaigned to try to get non Muslims to believe that RUU355 would curtail the drinking, gambling and other illicit vices that they hold sacred in the name of freedom of choice.

Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition say that Muslims should not comment on an event like the Beer Festival because it has nothing to do with them.

Does anyone else see the irony in that?

In the view of non Muslims like Lim Kit Siang and those who hold to his way of thinking; Muslims should not comment on or interfere with events like Beer Festivals from taking place.

However, they (Lim Kit Siang and others) believe it is acceptable for them to comment on matters that pertain to Muslims.  Why?

Patriarchal Lim Kit Siang believes he and those like him know what is best for Muslims and in their minds RUU355 is not good for Muslims.

What Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition want is for Muslims to embrace an anything goes attitude.  For Muslims to reject such an open lifestyle is becoming synonymous to Islamisation creeping into Malaysia.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/09/19/dap-beer-festival-ban-sign-of-creeping-islamisation/

Those who use terms like Islamisation want Muslims to become so uncomfortable, that they (Muslims) embrace any type of liberal lifestyle that is presented to them.  However seeing the writing on the wall, over twenty-five (25) NGOS protested against organizing alcohol and LGBT festivals.

https://www.nst.com.my/news/politics/2017/09/282847/25-ngos-hold-protest-against-organising-alcohol-lgbt-festivals

There is little doubt that those who share the view of Lim kit Siang and his DAP-led opposition will want all Malaysians to say Yes to Beer, LGBT etc, but No to RUU355!

 

Pakatan Using Fear Tactic to Force PAS Back!

PAS-PKR-DAP-cracked-L-e1506573004314

Has anyone else noticed Pakatan’s latest’s tactic using the fear factor to force PAS back into the fold?

This is the most recent ploy used after DAP-led Pakatan’s De facto leader Lim Kit Siang was unsuccessful in trying to lure PAS back into the fold.  After that attempt failed, Clare Rewcastle-Brown the editor and chief of Sarawak Report went on the attack and accused Datuk Seri Hadi Awang of accepting a bribe.  Allegedly the bribe was supposed to be connected to funds from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Sarawak Report wanted Malays to think that, if the Prime Minister is accused of taking 1MDB money and PAS President Hadi Awang accepts illegal 1MDB money then he is also tainted.

However, accusing the PAS President of bribery has backfired as Clare Rewcastle-Brown did not anticipate Haidi Awang asking his lawyers to bring her to court over her claim; a claim which she failed to prove.

While the dream was being played out in the London court, a Muslim face of DAP-led Pakatan was sent to again encourage PAS President Hadi Awang to bring PAS back into the fold; an effort that was also met with failure.

Seeing that the direct approach was getting them (DAP-led Pakatan) nowhere, a new tactic was put into play; using ‘fear’ to scare PAS into returning.

DAP-led Pakatan wants PAS to fear losing ‘political power’.

Articles have started to appear with the sole purpose of making PAS fearful about their prospects in the upcoming 14th general election.

An article in Berita daily reads: research house says ‘Opposition Bickering Good for BN’.

http://www.beritadaily.com/research-house-says-opposition-bickering-good-for-bn/

Another article which is cause fear in the PAS rank and file appeared in the Malaysia Chinese news under the heading ‘PAS may lose heavily in a three-cornered fight’.

Trying to add to PAS fear, there is the following article that mentions how ‘PAS will not be a factor in Selangor’.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/pas-will-not-be-a-factor-in-selangor-in-ge14/

Malaysia Mail Online (MMO) carried that following story from Singapore daily; The Straits Times (ST). The report states that ‘PAS may lose Kelantan in GE14’.

The common theme running through all of these articles is PAS should be afraid because it is weak and cannot hold on to power unless it runs back into the arms of Lim Kit Siang and his DAP-led Pakatan opposition.

However in addressing PAS’ so called weakness multimedia and communications minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak stated ‘PAS is not weak although it has left Pakatan Harapan’. He goes on to say…’although PAS had its ups and downs, the party members were always loyal to the party and its grassroots machinery was also strong’.

Read the full article below

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/report-pas-may-lose-kelantan-in-ge14#HWE1DhjkodZr1vwI.97

DAP-led Pakatan using the fear of loss as a means to bring PAS back is severely misplaced.  Lim Kit Siang and those aligned to his way of thinking must believe that the leadership in PAS is more concerned about power than about principles.

It is the belief that PAS cares more about power than they do about principles which gives further credence to what Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK) has written ‘Why Chinese Do Not Understand PAS’; and which is why using the fear factor to bring PAS back to the (beer party) coalition will not work!
