Lim Guan Eng Criticised PAS for Floods in Kelantan; Now Look!

There is a saying that goes; water finds its own level as Lim Guan Eng is finding out.

Penang Menteri Besar Lim Guan Eng had criticised PAS for floods in Kelantan and now Lim Guan Eng is facing a deluge of water in the state he is administering.

Only recently Lim Guan Eng was faced with a tragic landslide

http://www.malaysia-today.net/how-will-guan-eng-deal-with-landslide/

Now Penang is facing flood water that is close to two (2) meters high.

It would be convenient for Lim Guan Eng to say that there was nothing his DAP-led administration could do about the rain as it is the result of the global warming!

It is strange how flooding is be said to be the result of global warming in Penang, but Lim Guan Eng would refer to the same type of flooding in Kelantan as a failure of the PAS government.

But the DAP-led Pakatan opposition seems to have a pattern in this regard; failure to see their own failures.

We only need to look no further back than to Tun Mahathir’s Bugis Pirate remark.  None of those in DAP-led Pakatan held or to this day is holding Tun Mahathir accountable for his remark.

From de facto leader all through the upper echelon; all of their lips have been glued together with respect to Tun Mahathir’s Bugis Pirate racist statement.

So today Datuk Salleh Said Keruak called on Lim Kit Siang to clarify his and DAP-led Pakatan’s stand on the bugis remark.

There is even of question of whether Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Azmin Ali would censure Tun Mahathir over the slur.

The Third Force (TTF): The onus is now for Azmin to prove if he is loyal to The Sultan of Selangor. Back in 2014, PKR committed democratic thievery by fabricating evidence against the then Menteri Besar. When the Sultan intervened, top party leaders and even Lim Kit Siang insulted the palace by telling His Royal Highness to stay out. To this day, neither faction has apologised to the ruler. Will Azmin now do what is necessary to redeem his party’s dignity or is he going to sanction Mahathir’s slur by keeping mum?

https://www.thethirdforce.net/will-azmin-do-what-is-right-and-censure-mahathir-over-bugis-slur/

It has become quite apparent that throughout Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition that they are quick to point a finger and are blind to the other fingers pointing back at them.

And there is another one that goes

Bob

Looking at how DAP-led Pakatan refuses to look at its own faults; Lim Guan Eng’s fixation on looking for faults with PAS and UMNO and being oblivious to the waters rising around him is of little surprise. He even criticised PAS for floods in Kelantan; now look!

Pakatan’s Post GE14 Economic Plan; Empty Promises and Beer Festivals!

Kit-Siang-Beer

Pakatan seems to have finally forged their post 14th general election economic plan. It consists of making empty promises and hosting beer festivals to bring in revenue.

On the flip side, we have world leaders (US President Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May) inviting Malaysia Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to visit their nations.  There is even a Bloomberg report that states that both Malaysia and Hong Kong are the biggest Asian growth surprises.

Part of the report reads: (Bloomberg) The two nations received the largest upgrades for this year among major economies in the Asian Development Bank’s latest outlook released on Tuesday. Click the link below to read the full article.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/hk-and-malaysia-are-biggest-asian-growth-surprises-says-adb/

The report comes on the heels of other economic successes that are bringing in investments from China, India, Japan and other nations.

In contrast to those accomplishments, Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition can only make promises.  Some examples of these promises are:

Tun Mahathir promising to build another Proton

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/08/25/mahathir-mohamad-start-another-car-project/

In a response to the above proposal, the communications and multimedia Datuk Salleh Said Keruak tells Mahathir to get real about ‘another Proton’.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/08/25/salleh-tells-mahathir-to-get-real-about-another-proton/

In an attempt to lure the votes in Sarawak, DAP-led Pakatan is digging in their empty sack to for more empty promises; placing them under the guise of a new deal for Sarawak.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/pakatan-harapan-committed-to-new-deal-for-sarawak/

Read RPK’s ‘Does Mahathir think Sarawak is stupid’ response below.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/mahathir-thinks-sarawakians-are-stupid/

Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition has further their desperation by trying to bait the government into allowing a Beer fest of sorts to take place in Kuala Lumpur.  However, due to security and other concerns the doors are closed to this activity taking place in Kuala Lumpur.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/igp-beer-fest-cancelled-due-to-possible-militant-attack/

Now the question becomes; will Selangor Menteri Besar welcome the Beer Fest in his area?  How can the Muslim components in Pakatan Harapan openly support this type of activity?

http://www.malaysia-today.net/beer-and-daps-questionable-allies/

PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang and the rest of PAS must be shaking their heads thinking; ‘they wanted us to be a party to this type of behavior’.

All things considered, it’s mind boggling how DAP-led Pakatan can criticize Najib for bringing in foreign investments when the only economic plan they have to offer Malaysians consists of empty promises and hosting beer festivals!

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?

 

 

Pakatan Harapan And Minions Prayed Their Fate Would Not Rest On GE14!

pakatan-harapan-image

It is safe to say that Pakatan Harapan (DAP, PKR, Amanah) hoped that their fate would not have to come down to GE14 as that would without a doubt be the proverbial straw which would break their collective backs.

How things have change.  This time a year ago Pakatan Harapan along with Tun Mahathir thought that 2016 would have them installed as the kingpins and certainly the king makers in Malaysia.  However, instead of being kingpins they found themselves as bowling pins being knocked down repeatedly.

It may have also been around the same time when the unnatural alliance of Pakatan Harapan, ANC, Tun Mahathir and their assortment of other players were prematurely patting each other on the back for a job which they thought was well done.

The job in reference was to remove the democratically elected Prime Minister of Malaysia Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office.

The cohorts may have even gone so far as having discussions on which cabinet posts would be given to which party; in other words diving up the spoils of war.

However, what they probably did not discuss at that time was the release of de-facto Opposition leader Datuk Anwar Ibrahim from prison.  After all why would that even be discussed as the Opposition conglomerate believed that victory was at hand without his assistance so they seemed more than content to allow him to finish his time behind bars.

It was also around a year ago that many people believed that Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali was making his big play to become the new Opposition leader or at least to land a higher post in government.

Perhaps while Azmin Ali was dreaming of his next big move, Tun Mahathir was already licking his chops over the idea that his son would soon be one position (DPM) away from becoming Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Still while all of this dreaming was going the Opposition grossly overlooked the most important factor in all of this; the rakyat.

Pakatan Harapan and all of those with them have failed to understand that it is because of the trust the rakyat has in Team Barisan Nasional and Prime Minister Najib Razak that they have been given the mandate to lead the nation.  It is this mandate which has to be of concern for Pakatan Harapan as they and their cohorts have all but admitted that they cannot defeat Barisan Nasional in a straight fight.  That is why Pakatan Harapan, Tun Mahathir et al were hoping to unseat Najib before GE18.  They knew that if he were still in office prior to GE14 that would be a clear signal that they were defeated.  And the last time I checked, Najib Razak was still in office!

The Probability of Pakatan Harapan Winning GE14; The Same As Seeing Halley’s Comet In 2018!

congress

Pakatan Harapan is beginning to realize that the probability of their coalition winning GE14 in 2018 or earlier have the same odds as sighting Halley’s’ Comet in 2018; less than zero!

Just to put that in perspective consider the following fact about Halley’s Comet:

Halley’s Comet is arguably the most famous comet. It is a “periodic” comet and returns to Earth’s vicinity about every 75 years, making it possible for a human to see it twice in his or her lifetime. The last time it was here was in 1986, and it is projected to return in2061

Think over that….Seventy Five (75) years.  That would almost explain the fading experiment that made up the Opposition.  The last victory for the then Pakatan Rakyat (now Pakatan Harapan) was in 2008.  Since that time the only noise they made of any political note was Selangor.  So if 2008 was the tail of Opposition blip on the political scene then they will have to wait until 2083 or thereabouts before they make their next appearance of any significance.

Knowing that victories have been few and far between, Pakatan Harapan led by the DAP has switched to full confused panic mode.  There are those in the coalition like Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali trying to make overtures to PAS even though the obvious leader party in Pakatan Harapan (DAP) no longer want to deal with PAS directly as they (DAP) view PAS as having spurned their love.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2016/10/01/pas-in-pakatan-azmin-calls-for-collective-effort/

Amanah who left PAS and who are now taking their running orders from the DAP also do no not look happily to PAS coming back to the Pakatan Harapan fold as that would relegate them (Amanah) to even lesser significance than they presently have in the coalition of unequal’s!

Also trying to emerge from political obscurity are both former DPM Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and former Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir.  Both of these men, if you do not count Tun Mahathir make up the top two (2) posts in Parti Pribumi Bersatu or Pribumi.

Muhyiddin and Mukhriz have of late been trying to find their voices on the political scene.  We have seen them during their recent press forays make statements on forming a grand opposition coalition with PAS included and showing up at Anwar’s court appearance all in an effort to pump like in their own political careers and to try to keep Pribumi in the public eye.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/pakatan-mps-back-mukhrizs-proposal-for-unified-opposition

http://www.malaysia-today.net/now-its-muhyiddins-turn-to-visit-anwar/

What they (Muhyiddin Yassin, Mukhriz) as well as Tun Mahathir are saying is that they believe that they have as much chance of winning GE14 as they have of spotting Halley’s Comet in 2018.  In fact, Tun Mahathir who tried to in an undemocratic manner to unseat Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is hinting that they Citizen’s Declaration and all the other gimmicks have failed.  Mahathir says if the Malaysian rulers do not act on his ‘Citizen’s Declaration’ the only choice is to follow the democratic approach (novel idea) and leave the rakyat to decide at GE14.  (here)

The DAP with their Pakatan Harapan surrogates also know that Tun Mahathir’s failure is their failure as well as they were intricately joined with him (Mahathir) at the hip.

Now Pakatan Harapan’s realizes that the probability of their GE14 victory is the same as spotting Halley’s Comet in 2018!

 

The Opposition Will Stop At Nothing To Con Malays For Their Votes!

LKS Buffer

With all of the Opposition”s recent chatter over whom their candidate is, one cannot help but to see how desperate they have come of late.  Pakatan Harapan is hoping that by there mentioning the name of their jailed de-facto Opposition leader’s name (Datuk Anwar Ibrahim) that it would carry favor within the Malay community.  In doing this, it further proves how out of touch Pakatan Harapan is with the rakyat in general and more specifically with Malays.

Does Pakatan Harapan think that the Malays do not know that Anwar Ibrahim is in Sungai Buloh prison and that he is still associated with the Opposition?  Malaysians are well aware of where he is and why is there.  His (Anwar Ibrahim’s) being the Opposition leader in any capacity did not help bring in votes in Sarawak, Sungai Besar nor Kuala Kangsar.

When the collective votes were tallied, it was obvious that the Lim’s (Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng) Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali, former deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, former Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir, former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim were all ineffective in the efforts from near and far to bring in the votes needed to secure any semblance of a win Pakatan Harapan.

In looking at the disarray which has become synonymous of Pakatan Harapan’s existence, a line from a nursery rhyme in the West sums up how dysfunctional they (Pakatan Harapan) have become:

All the kings’ horse and all the kings’ men could not put Humpty Dumpty (Pakatan Harapan) together again.  

Even prior to the elections mentioned the Bersih 4 fiasco proved that a large segment of Malaysians did not support what the DAP led Pakatan Harapan stood for.  If nothing else, the lack of the Malay presence proved that Malays see behind the tricks of the Opposition and by large choose to be supportive of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the government.  That is why the rakyat through their votes in East and Peninsular Malaysia gave Team Barisan Nasional the mandate to continue to lead.

The Opposition knows that they do not have a chance of pulling out any type of win in GE14 without the Malay vote so early on they hoped that bringing up the GST and 1MDB would bring out votes for their (Opposition) cause.  Seeing how that did not produce results they attempted to recycle Tun Mahathir thinking that he would be enough to create some sort of tsunami of Malay votes.

Again, their effort met with colossal failure as Tun Mahathir was literally a non factor.

Now, they are trying to recycle the name of Anwar Ibrahim trying to create some interest in the Malay community.  The Opposition even mentions his name and the job of Prime Minister in the same breadth to get Malays to bite on an invisible apple. (here)

The Anwar card seems to be their (Pakatan Harapan’s) default tactic when they have nothing else and no one else to fall back on.  However, Malaysians and Malays in particular cannot be easily fooled; they have become well aware of how the Opposition will do and say anything in their desperation to con Malays for their votes!

Azmin Put In His Place; Now Says PKR, Mahathir Alliance Needs Anwar’s Approval!

azmin-ali

It was not too long ago that Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali was positioning himself to sideline both Datuk Dr. Wan Azizah and her incarcerated husband; de-facto PKR leader Datuk Anwar Ibrahim.

During his own little coup attempt in the making, Azmin Ali was giving the impression that he was making the shots for the party and therefore did not to seek Anwar Ibrahim’s and especially Datuk Wan Azizah’s approval. We all remember this:

 http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2016/05/08/azmin-wants-pas-back-in-new-opposition-pact/

His actions were in direct contradiction to the position his own party PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat Pakatan) and their alliance partners in Pakatan Harapan had taken.    In his public persona of speaking for the party, Azmin Ali hoped to gain a ground swelling for his takeover bid.  On Wan Azizah’s part, she could do little more than make excuses to try and cover what amounted to a house (PKR) becoming divided.

Azmin Ali’s next move to embolden his position was to try to and hedge his political bet by aligning himself with Tun Mahathir’s ‘Save Everything but Anwar Campaign

It is worth noting that saving Anwar was as important to him (Azmin Ali) as it was for Tun Mahathir (when he didn’t need him) ranking right up there with getting a root canal just for the heck of it; which should make it clear that Azmin Ali was happy with Anwar Ibrahim snuggled up right where he was in Sungai Bulow.

After it became clear to Anwar Ibrahim that Tun Mahathir’s ‘Save this and that’ rally did not include him; Anwar had his wife pull the plug on any PKR participation.   However, that did not deter Azmin Ali from continuing to work with Tun Mahathir ‘Without’ Anwar Ibrahim’s approval.

Mahathir and Azmin

After all, Azmin Ali probably thought that Tun Mahathir was his quick path to not only becoming the head of PKR, but a possible future deputy Prime Minister’s post.

Azmin Ali like Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin believed it was sooner rather than later for him to move up the political ladder.  However, like Icarus whose wings of wax melted when he tried to fly too high; Azmin Ali crashed after the private PKR letter was conveniently made public.

With Anwar’s direct/indirect warning to Azmin; Azmin knew that he had to make a hasty retreat way from Tun Mahathir least he too would end up like Muhyiddin Yassin; outside looking in.

These days Azmin Ali is singing a different tune; where not too long ago he was acting as if he needed no approval, he now says any political alliance with Tun Mahathir has to be approved by Anwar Ibrahim.

Perhaps it was Muhyiddin Yassin’s sacking that scared Azmin Ali back to political reality
