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

LAM

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”.

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/12/01/rci-facts-were-concealed-mahathir-anwar-and-nor-mohamed-implicated-over-bnm-forex-losses/

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.

http://www.malaysia-today.net/jahabar-sadiq-panics-and-soils-his-pants/

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!

daddylim

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.

https://www.malaysia-today.net/danger-in-dap-radicalizing-its-political-christianity/

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.

https://www.thethirdforce.net/will-the-real-top-dog-please-stand-up/

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!

 

Mahathir Like Mugabe Must Face The Inevitable!

MT

Tun Mahathir and former Zimbabwe’s president Robert Gabriel Mugabe have to come to grips with reality; their time has passed.

On Tuesday in Harare Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe resigned as his country’s present ending marking the end of his 37 year rule.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/nov/21/robert-mugabe-resigns-as-president-of-zimbabwe

The writing for the end of Mugabe’s hold on power was seen last week when the armoured vehicles took to the streets of Harare followed by Robert Mugabe being placed under house arrest.

It was largely speculated that Robert Mugabe was trying to position his wife Grace to the next president of Zimbabwe after the 93 year Mugabe served another term.

There are staunch similarities between Robert Mugabe and Tun Mahathir.

Tun Mahathir was Malaysia’s Prime Minister for 22 years.  Although he stepped down from his post, he tried to maintain control over those who would take over as Prime Minister.  So there was Robert Mugabe with no pretence determined to stay in power and Tun Mahathir giving the facade of vacating the post, but still wanting to maintain control over those who took over.

Although Tun Mahathir would claim otherwise (or does he) that he is not trying to place his son Mukhriz in position to become Prime Minister; everyone knows that every political move he makes is with that end in mind.

When Robert Mugabe tried to position his wife Grace to become the next head of State his was too much for the people of Zimbabwe to stomach.  Many Malaysians also see Tun Mahathir’s attempts to elevate Mukhriz as a difficult pill that Dr. Mahathir wants Malaysian’s to swallow.  After all, Mukhriz other than sharing the Mahathir family name has cannot succeed in politics on his own; which is why he needs that ‘safe seat’ to contest.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/15/why-does-mukhriz-need-a-safe-seat-ansara/

Tun Mahathir has to realize that the era of passing the baton to one’s unqualified seed just for the sake of dynasty is over.   Malaysia is heading in a positive direction and the post of Prime Minister cannot to be a platform for OJT (On Job Training).

It is time for Tun Mahathir to give up his dream for his son as well as his own dream for wielding control over the government.

Robert Mugabe had to face the inevitable that his time has passed and no longer controls the government.  Mahathir now in his golden years must face the same reality that not only has his time has passed, but just like Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace will not become the president of Zimbabwe; Tun Mahathir’s son Mukhriz will not become Prime Minister of Malaysia!

Pakatan Harapan; The Politics of ‘What if’!

LAM

In DAP-led Pakatan Harapan politics, just like in life there are a lot of ‘What ifs’.

These are the various musings people make when they reflecting on the current state of events in their lives.

In life there are those who look at those around them who have achieved a degree of success and wonder: What if I had applied myself more; wouldn’t my situation be better than it is now?

What if I were born in another country, different ethnicity, taller or richer, wouldn’t I be… yada yada yada; you know how it goes.

Similarly now that Malaysia is gearing up for the 14th general election; there is probably a lot of musing, self reflection and kicking oneself in the pants taking place among those in Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led opposition who have their ‘what ifs’.

When looking back over the strategy of allowing Tun Mahathir and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) join DAP-led Pakatan, Lim Kit Siang may be thinking at this crucial time; what if I had rebuffed the idea of allowing Tun Mahathir and PPBM join?

Lim Kit Siang’s may also be reflecting on how he could have capitalized on that fact that Tun Mahathir after leaving UMNO did not really having a base.  He (LKS) could have continued going after him over BMF forex and other contentious issues that are tied to Tun Mahathir.  Instead of doing that, Lim Kit Siang looks like (and rightly so) someone who placed price before his principles; and now he is paying the price!

Tun Mahathir who to this day does not look fully comfortable with Lim Kit Siang (no matter how they try to display their bromance publically) has his own list of what ifs.

Tun Mahathir could be thinking: what if I had not tried to bully Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib the same way I did Tun Dato’ Sri Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi;  Mukhriz and I would still be in UMNO and not outside it of it secretly wishing we were still in

Perhaps if Tun Mahathir had employed a different strategy he would not have had to swallow all of those things he has said about Lim Kit Siang, DAP and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim.  Well, in the case of the latter he did not swallow as he never did come out and say he does not commit sodomy.

Adding to Tun Mahathir’s what ifs:

What if Mukhriz were more ………,………,……..and ……..(fill in the blanks); wouldn’t he be able to achieve political success without riding on his father’s name.  And what if Mukhriz family name was not Mahathir would he even be in a political discussion at all not to mention a conversation about becoming a future Prime Minister?

Lastly, I am placing the snippets on Lim Guan Eng and Datuk Anwar Ibrahim together as they may soon be sharing a common mailing address.

Lim Guan Eng what if: What if I had not l thought Malays were not intelligent enough to figure out how I purchased my bungalow; and what if I had not criticised PAS on how they govern and handle floods in Kelantan.

Datuk Anwar Ibrahim what if: What if I had not continued to act upon those unnatural desires for males that landed me in jail to which Tun Mahathir knows all too well.

And what if I my semen could have magically disappeared from the annals of hiStory like those billions Mahathir talked about; my life would certainly be different today.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2017/11/08/anwar-was-hoping-for-a-bit-of-magic-from-the-court/

Realizing that the 14th general election is only a stone’s throw away, Pakatan Harapan finds itself immersed in thinking about the politics of ‘What if’!

 

 

 

Lim Kit Siang to Pakatan; Who’s Your Daddy!

daddylim

While DAP-led Pakatan may have their ‘top dog’ and running dogs, it is only their de facto leader Lim Kit Siang, who can say to the Pakatan coalition; who’s your daddy!

Those so called coalition partners may not like it, but they know when all is said and done; it is Lim Kit Siang who calls the plays.

On Lim Kit Siang’s part, he is shrewd enough to allow his Pakatan Harapan partners believe that they have a voice in matters of importance or that they have generated an idea or two.

In that respect Lim Kit Siang operates much like a daddy fox that allows his ‘kits’ (baby foxes) to play with his tail. The daddy fox wiggles the tail around so that little kits can chase and even on occasion catch it.  The young kits whelp with elation thinking that they are in control; but in reality it is the daddy fox who decides who is in control of the game.

So Lim Kit Siang makes a suggestion here and there or even makes a statement that he wants one of his happy kits (so called coalition partners) to pounce on as if it is his or her idea.  Lim Kit Siang is happy because his kits are happy and he gets the execution which he needs from them

That is why Lim Kit Siang wanted Datuk Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to become Prime Minister.  He knows that she would be the perfect Manchurian Candidate.

https://themalaysianobserverblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/18/with-wan-azizah-as-interim-pm-lim-kit-siang-would-have-the-perfect-manchurian-candidate/

All Lim Kit Siang would have to do is make a suggestion and then tie that suggestion to an ideal of how it would help her husband.  Then by the time there is a press conference; she (Wan Azizah) would believe that she came up with the thought.

But even with Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail removed from any serious conversation for becoming Prime Minister, Lim Kit Siang still knows that he is the daddy fox for the DAP-led Pakatan Harapan opposition; what he says goes and what he wants he gets.

So for Lim Kit Siang there was no problem allowing Tun Mahathir to believe that he is the ‘top dog’; which is laughable seeing how Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) is the smallest party in the coalition and its newest add on.

But there again, Lim Kit Siang knew just how to play Tun Mahathir.  All he needed to do is play to Mahathir’s ego.  He knew Tum Mahathir would be more cooperative if his ego were exercised and he became chairman.   So Lim Kit Siang allowed Tun Mahathir to believe he caught the tail (top post), but it was Lim Kit Siang who decided that he should get it.

Yes, there may have been RM1 Billion paid for the chairman’s post and as well as an easy seat for Mukhriz to contest in the 14th general election, but without Lim Kit Siang’s approval any deal would fall through.

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

That’s why Lim Kit Siang can say to Tun Mahathir and the rest of Pakatan; who’s your daddy!

 

Anwar Was Hoping for a Bit of Magic From The Court!

AS

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was probably hoping for a bit of magic from the court.  The magic that he hoped for was that his conviction would be overturned.

Unfortunately for Anwar, the High Court struck out the lawsuit over allegations that Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah was paid RM9.5 million to be public prosecutor to make sure Anwar stayed locked up.

http://m.thestar.com.my/story.aspx?hl=Anwar-fails-to-secure-release-after-court-strikes-out-suit-over-Shafee-DPP-role&sec=news&id=%7B6312FAE4-7749-48F8-9936-C2EC61EA241E%7D

What the lawsuit amounted to was Anwar saying that in the high stacks card game; the deck of cards was stated against him; and as a result he should be released.

It is strange how Anwar and his lawyers want to make money being or not being paid the focal point for his release.  Just about any other man who was convicted of the crime of sodomy would have the main focus of their appeals etc be on the fact that they did not have unnatural relations with someone of the same gender.

But that does not seem to be that case with Anwar Ibrahim and his lawyers. Their whole release strategy seems to be in finding a legal loophole that will allow Anwar to by-pass the crime of raping a man which he has been imprisoned for.

If he can find some legal snafu he will say that the courts found him innocent of the crime of sodomy not that his lawyers found something in the law that he could use to as a get out of jail free card.

But not finding anything legally to date that will open the prison doors for him means that Anwar has stay locked up with the exception of his visits to the hospital.

It makes one ponder on why Anwar elected to not take the stand in his own defence during his trial?

One possible explanation is that during a mock trial cross examination session, Anwar’s lawyers realized that if Anwar took that stand, there would be no doubt about his guilt.

Another possible reason is that could be evidence against him that is being held for a rainy day.  Who knows; Tun Mahathir may even have some of that rainy day evidence.

All that does not seem to matter as Anwar failed in his bid to be released as the High Court struck out the lawsuit that Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdulla was paid RM9.5 million to make sure Anwar finished out his sentence behind bars; a sentence that the court has given him because his semen magically found its way into the backdoor of his political aid.

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2014/11/05/anwar-could-have-tested-own-dna-prosecution-questions-why-a-test-was-not-done-abroad-to-dispute-male/

Therefore it stands to reason that when Anwar woke up this morning, he hoped a bit of magic would help release him from prison in the same way that first magic trick (using his wand) landed him there!

 

 

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.

http://malaysiandigest.com/frontpage/29-4-tile/657249-pas-a-failed-party-running-a-failed-state-says-guan-eng.html

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.

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2017/11/04/salleh-said-keruak-kit-siang-bugis/

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!
