Pakatan Failed in Using 1MDB as a Fulcrum to Dislodge Najib!

Tun 1MDB

Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition thought that they could use 1MDB as some type of political fulcrum to dislodge Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from his position as Prime Minster.

As relentless as Lim Kit Sit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan opposition tried, they could not find the right leverage to uproot Najib Razak from office.

Lim Kit Siang knew that in order to unseat the Najib, he needed Malay muscle on his side of the fulcrum; that is why he tried to extend an olive branch to Datuk Seri Hadi Awang and PAS.

However Lim Kit Siang’s overtures to Hadi Awang and PAS quickly turned to disdain when PAS and UMNO started working together of common interest.

Shortly after PAS and UMNO started working on matters which are of a concern to Muslims, the DAP-led opposition’s propaganda portal (Sarawak Report) came out with an article (since removed)  entitled ‘Cash for Pas’-The Accusations build up.

As a result of all of the accusations and lies in the article, PAS has brought a lawsuit against Clare Rewcastle-Brown; the editor of Sarawak Report.

In lieu of the fact that the DAP-led opposition still needing Malay help on the Fulcrum, they fast tracked their former archenemy (Tun Mahathir) along with his newly formed political party (Party Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia) into the inner sanctums of their (PH) coalition.

In actuality, the DAP-led opposition had no other choice but to fast track Mahathir as they had no mascot outside of the confines of prison walls to be the face of the opposition.

Therefore, being devoid of any type of leadership, Dr. Mahathir became the bitter pill that Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition was forced to swallow.

However, even with the addition of Tun Mahathir to Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition, they still had a problem; the issue (1MDB) they have put all their hope into was going nowhere and neither was Najib.

Tun Mahathir along with the Pakatan opposition have spent a lot of time, effort and no doubt money trying to use 1MDB as the fulcrum to dislodge Najib from office with nothing to show for it.

Holding ‘Nothing to Hide 2.0′ was a desperate attempt to keep 1MDB alive.  However, the only thing ‘Nothing to Hide 2.0’ proved was that Pakatan Harapan is a house of cards that is beginning to collapse on itself!

Pakatan Harapan Has Been and Continues to be a One-Trick Pony!

TunandPH

Pakatan Harapan has proven to only be a one trick-pony in a room of Smokey mirrors.

Tun Mahathir’s joining and almost instantaneous ascension as self proclaimed “Top Dog” for DAP-led Pakatan proves that they were in need of a new pony as people started questioning why the Pakatan was running around like a headless chicken.

Being a headless chicken had more than likely expedited any deal between Tun Mahathir and DAP-led Pakatan.

Not working out some sort of deal with Tun Mahathir would have left Pakatan Harapan in the uncomfortable position of having to respond to the many questions on why there was no name other than Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as their choice for Prime Minister.

To cover the coalition’s lack of depth, the DAP-led opposition tried to display Anwar as if he were either:

  1. Not in prison
  2. Someone who could manage things from Sungai Buloh prison or
  3. Someone who would soon be released.

Whichever the scenario, it was of utmost importance for Pakatan Harapan to keep their (Anwar Ibrahim) one trick pony show going until they could find another solution.

This is where Tun Mahathir became a useful tool.

Tun Mahathir along with his now almost nonexistent political Party (Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia /PPBM) needed a stage to perform and DAP-led Pakatan a pony that could do tricks for the Malay audience.

The union of Tun Mahathir with Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led Pakatan gave both men what they needed:

Mahathir: a platform that could help resuscitate his son Mukhriz’ political career

Lim Kit Siang: Access to Malay voters

The embarrassing thing about having Mahathir as Pakatan’s new one trick pony is people are realizing that Tun Mahathir becoming the “top dog” means that the kennel had been empty prior to his arrival.

It also means that all of DAP-led Pakatan’s posturing, placards, new conferences were all smoking mirrors cover the fact that they were empty and could only dangle the name of a prisoner (Anwar Ibrahim) out before the public.

Now it is Mahathir who is being dangled out before the public.

The problem for Pakatan Harapan is their new pony or “top dog’s” trick (1MDB) has turned out to be much to do about nothing; which has become yet another Mahathir’s red faced moment.

https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/391474

It appears that top dog Tun Mahathir barking up the wrong tree (1MDB) is proving to not only to be an embarrassment to him,

http://www.malaysia-today.net/how-najib-used-1mdb-to-get-mahathir-to-humiliate-himself/

but it is proving to be an even bigger embarrassment for the (still) DAP-led Pakatan opposition which has placed Mahathir at the head of the coalition that he has just joined.

Allowing Tun Mahathir to become ‘top dog’ only proves that Pakatan Harapan has been and continues to be a one-trick pony in a room of smoky mirrors!

 

 

Impossible for Mahathir and Pakatan to Drop 1MDB Without Looking Foolish!

TunandPH

Have you ever known a man who will continue to drive down the wrong road knowing that it is wrong instead of admitting the mistake and asking for directions?

This is pretty much what Tun Mahathir and Pakatan Harapan have done with respect to the issue of 1Malaysia Development Berhad or 1MDB.  If they have not known from the onset of their crusade to use 1MDB against the Prime Minister was bogus, they certainly knew early that there was no proof.

The DAP’s very own Tony Pua who was part of the Parliament Accounts Committee found no wrong doing on the part of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.  So one has to wonder what is with the latest plea from Pakatan Harapan for an investigative look into 1MDB.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/08/08/ph-to-macc-probe-1mdb-dont-forget-politicians-come-and-go/

Is Tony Pua now saying the he and the other members of the PAC were too incompetent to investigate the matter?  If so why was he willing to undertake the process?

If in fact the PAC investigative process was not flawed then what has subsequently taken place since then is a desperate attempt to find some legal body that will say that Prime Minister Najib is guilty of something.

Therefore we first saw the PAC investigation: No blamed assigned to the Prime Minister

Then there was the USA Department of Justice (DoJ) with their questionable motives: Again, no name specified.  I guess innocence until proven guilty still applies to some degree there.

After Tun Mahathir’s hope in DoJ quickly flamed out, he had his emissaries turn their attention to the House of Commons:  But that hope fizzled out faster than the hope that he place in the DoJ; even Pakatan’s UK Sarawak Reports mouth piece Clare Rewcastle-Brown was unsuccessful to get a UK court to parrot her belief that Malaysia’s government and leaders are corrupt

http://www.malaysia-today.net/uk-court-rules-no-evidence-that-najib-and-malaysian-judiciary-are-corrupt/

Now, out of pure desperation Pakatan Harapan is trying to put pressure on Malaysia’s Anit Corruption Commission (MACC).

Pakatan’s strategy will be something like the following: If the MACC investigates and finds nothing in the same way PAC found nothing they (PH) will say that the MACC is in collusion with the government to cover up the truth.

Even if the MACC starts a thorough and length investigative process, Pakatan Harapan will say that they (MACC) are dragging it out until after GE14.  Conversely, if the MACC investigates quickly, Lim Kit Siang and Pakatan will say that it was no thorough.

So no matter what the MACC does, it’s damned if they do and damned if they don’t because the only thing that will satisfy Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of PH is a resounding assignment of guilt placed at the feet of Najib Razak; nothing else fits into their agenda to deceive the Malay’s.

That is why Pakatan Harapan’s Lim Guan Eng is upset that Arul Kanda Kandasamy briefed PAS on 1MDB.  Lim Guan Eng knows that if PAS is satisfied with the explanation then the DAP will not be able to use 1MDB as a weapon to have Malays going against Malays.

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2017/08/08/1mdbs-arul-should-be-briefing-tony-pua-not-pas-says-guan-eng/

The problem for Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of Pakatan Harapan is that they know they cannot win without a sizable Malay backing.  They also know that it is impossible for them to drop the one issue (1MDB) that they were hoping to use to capture Malays without looking even more foolish than they do now!

 

Mahathir Moves from Nothing to Hide to Nothing to Talk About!

TunNothing

It looks like Mahathir has moved from Nothing to Hide to Nothing to Talk About!

In today’s Malaysia Today blog site, blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin has written a piece in The Corridors of Power” entitled “1MDB Is Najib’s Weapon, Not Mahathir’s

http://www.malaysia-today.net/1mdb-is-najibs-weapon-not-mahathirs/

In the piece (link above) RPK dissects how Tun Mahathir has in a sense placed all his chips on the 1MDB issue in the belief that it (1MDB) is the torpedo that would sink Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

When Tun Mahathir realized that Najib did not buckle under the onslaught he, Lim Kit Siang and the Pakatan machinery threw at him, he (Mahathir) tried to bring down Barisan Nasional.  Ideally, he wanted to keep BN intact for his son (Mukhriz), but Tun Mahathir saw that if it took bringing it (BN) down to bury Najib under the rubble then so be it!

Mahathir’s rage did not end with just trying to bring down BN in order to ruin Najib; he enacted a scorch earth (Malaysia) plan.

A scorch earth operation is where a warring faction destroys the livelihood of the nation they want to conquer in order so that they can take over.

In this case; the scorch Malaysia plan was to have Malaysia viewed as a corrupt nation and thereby unsafe for foreign investment.

In addition, the scorch Malaysia plan also entailed making Malaysians to feel so embarrassed by how they thought the world would view them that they (Malaysians) would demand for Prime Minister Najib Razak to step down.

Tun Mahathir would do all of this because he was like a horse wearing blinders; he could only see the rage he has for Najib and his plans to put his son (Mukhriz) in position to eventually become Prime Minister.

As such, he did not care who (Lim Kit Siang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) he had to crawl into bed with to bring those goals to reality.  In Mahathir’s mind the end justifies the means.

However, the problem with Tun Mahathir wearing blinders is that he could not see the reality which was around him.  For example; he thought that Najib not showing up at the “Nothing to Hide” forum was out of fear.  In fact, it was more of a strategic move on the part of the Prime Minister to stoke the flame of Mahathir’s ego so that he (Mahathir) would believe that he had the upper hand.

Mahathir had also missed that fact that outside of his Pakatan Harapan cohorts (and not all of them) he never got the people on his side; even the million signatures turned out to be a myth.

That is also why when it came to the Prime Minister’s lack of response over the 1MDB attacks; Mahathir could only see (1MDB) what he wanted to see.   As things were, Najib never felt compelled to respond to the accusations and was quite happy to let Tun Mahathir chase after shadows in the dark.

Now it seems that Tun Mahathir is beginning to glimpse the reality of his situation; placing all his chips on 1MDB has moved his ego from an euphoric high after Nothing to Hide to now; where he has Nothing to Talk About!

Pakatan’s Grand Malay Deception!

Pakatan’s Grand Malay Deception is giving the impression that they have a candidate for Prime Minister when in actuality they do not.

This deception took place after the reworking of their leadership structure had taken place

PHStructure

What Pakatan Harapan wants is for Malays to look at this structure and believe that Tun Mahathir is their choice for Prime Minister and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim is the choice for deputy Prime Minister; even though he is still in Sungai Buloh prison.

This image is suppose to conjure up memories of a time gone by before Tun Mahathir proclaimed to the world that Anwar Ibrahim has a penchant for intimate male companionship.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/was-anwar-set-up/

The real power behind the deception (Lim Kit Siang’s DAP) is hoping that Malays are further deceived into seeing that the Pakatan structure is not a DAP/Chinese-led Pakatan Harapan, but instead a Malay-led Pakatan Harapan.

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2221585

That is why the top most visible positions are stacked with faces that Malays will recognize thus giving the impression that Pakatan Harapan is not led by Lim Kit Siang who by the way is purposely not included in the structure.

Lim Kit Siang’s non inclusion in any of the positions could be to give the impression that there is no deal between Tun Mahathir and him to make the later deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister or that he will wait until his son Lim Guan Eng is convicted and then take his place in the same way Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail has taken up her husband’s (Anwar Ibrahim) seat when he was sent to prison for raping/sodomizing his aid.

http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/wan-azizah-replaces-anwar-once-again-in-parliament#kDrtrwqkKZZ1uhip.97

Lim Kit Siang and the DAP taking a back seat only shows they are the real power in Pakatan Harapan.  They (DAP) are party with the most seats, yet they give the position of chairman to the party (Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia/PPBM) with only one seat.

This again is like a Hollywood creation so that the targeted audience can believe in the Santa Clause fantasy that they are using to deceive the Malays.

The whole idea is for Malays to believe that Tun Mahathir is Pakatan Harapan’s choice for Prime Minister and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim is Pakatan Harapan’s choice for deputy Prime Minister.  In this way Pakatan Harapan escape not having to answer the question of who are their designated choices for both Prime Minister and deputy Prime Minister; a question they have yet to answer.

For Pakatan Harapan which is still led by Lim Kit Siang’s DAP, the most pressing issue is the continuation of the Grand Malay Deception.

That deception is to allow the Malays to believe that Pakatan Harapan is Malay-led when in fact Lim Kit Siang and his DAP are the hands that control the puppet!

Mahathir Must Face Reality; Mukhriz Has No Political Future in Pakatan Harapan Without Him!

Tun and Son

Tun Mahathir has to face reality when it comes to his son’s (Mukhriz) political career; and the reality is that is not with Pakatan Harapan.

Even with his father (Tun Mahathir) around Mukhriz has had zero impact in helping Pakatan Harapan.  In truth, he has had little impact in helping Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM). Remember them (PPBM) they were something styled as a political party which like Mukhriz accomplished zilch on the political front.  One would say their sole raison d’être was to latch on to Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition.

Pribumi is the political party that Mukhriz Mahathir has made his home since he was put out of UMNO.

One would think that Mukhriz would have used this fresh opportunity to reinvent himself and show some leadership potential that was severely lacking when he was still in UMNO.  However, what they say about a zebra and his stripes is apparently true; they don’t change.

Since Mukhriz could not change his stripes (lack of leadership) he can had to let his father try to cover up his deficiencies.  Mahathir could do so when he still held some political sway, but Mahathir lost his mojo and Mukhriz had no means to break into the lane that would lead him to become Prime Minister.

Mukhriz not being able to save his own position as Kedah Menteri Besar proved his lack of political strength in the party (UMNO) or even in Kedah.

If it were not for his father (Tun Mahathir) creating a political vehicle (PPBM) for him; Mukhriz would have been metaphorically speaking; left out in the cold.

However, even with his new vehicle (PPBM) Mukhriz cannot go anywhere on his own; he is 110% depended on his father to make moves on his behalf.  Unfortunately, the best Mahathir could do his latch on to DAP-led Pakatan which in itself has proven to be a directionless ship.

While Mukhriz has been given a position in the new Pakatan Harapan in the DAP effort to use Malays to Screw Malays; that position is not based on his works.  Mukhriz was given the VP post to appease his father.  If Tun Mahathir were to walk away from politics, Mukhriz would again be left out in the cold.

That is the reality for Mukhriz which he and Tun Mahathir know to be true.  Their only hope is to play an already played out 1MDB issue or Tun Mahathir has to try to get his son back in UMNO’s good graces; which may have been the process when Mukhriz made the confession that his father and Tan Sri Muhyiddin have been working since 2013 to oust Prime Minister Najib Razak.

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2017/07/14/mukhriz-admits-mahathir-muhyiddin-had-plans-topple-pm-najib

At this point it matter little the plan is to ride 1MDB into oblivion or try to get Mukhriz back in UMNO, Mahathir must face the reality that Mukhriz has no political career in Pakatan Harapan without him!

 

The 1MDB Road Show; The DoJ and The House of Commons; Where to Next, the Knesset!

Tun 1MDB

It seems that Tun Mahathir’s 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) road show has just made its second whistle stop.

The first stop (with a repeat performance) which was to bring Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib to his knees was the United States Department of Justice (DoJ).  At the time it was hoped that the DoJ announcement would have all of Malaysia buzzing during Raya celebrations.  However, outside of the Pakatan Harapan crowd, no one seemed to take much notice of what the DoJ said.

Now following Tun Mahathir and clan’s Hari Raya vacation in London, the House of Commons has all of a sudden become the latest Mat Salleh whistle stop in which the hollowed name of 1MDB is mentioned.  More than likely Tun Mahathir and crew thought that if former colonisers say something about 1MDB then it would hold more weight in the psyche of Malays.

Perhaps this is also the reason why Tun Mahathir and Pakatan Harapan cohorts rely so heavily on Sarawak Report (SR). They think Malays will find news coming from Clare Rewcastle-Brown to be more authentic.

The problem for Tun Mahathir and company is that Malays no longer hold their former colonisers or their children in the same esteem in which the once held.  These days it is becoming more common for Malays to outright reject news, and assessments which come from Mat Sallehs.

An example of this is the news leading to the Gulf war and all that has happened because of it (Guantanamo, Bay, Abu Ghraib and Libya).  That within itself served as example(s) of how Mat Salleh use, distort and fabricate news to get the people of color (majority of the world’s population) to believe what they say.

That is why Tun Mahathir and his cohorts ran to the west because he wants Malays to here lies coming from Mat Salleh (white people) as those lies would sound more believable.  It was not enough that 1MDB was investigated here in Malaysia; Tun Mahathir along with DAP- Pakatan which he is now part needed someone to say that a crime has been committed.  Further to that, they need for the Prime Minister to appear to have benefited from that crime.

Tun Mahathir and DAP-led Pakatan have only the one card (1MDB) to play which is why they have ceased speaking about the Government Service Tax (GST or highway tolls.   For Tun Mahathir and DAP-led Pakatan Harapan, 1MDB has become their do or die issue; their Waterloo

That is why is why Tun Mahathir’s desperation has led him to beg white people (Mat Salleh) in the USA (DoJ) and now in the U.K house of Common for help as he does not want meet the same fate as Napoleon.

Do not be surprised that following the House of Commons to see the next whistle stop being the Knesset.  The promise of first opening an Israeli trade office to pave the way for full diplomatic recognition could be placed on the table!
