As October draws near and next Parliament seating gets closer, more and more absurd news and slanderous accusations are surfacing to psyche the public and gullible MPs for a vote of no confidence against Dato Najib.
Najib should tell off Dato Pendikar Amin Mulia and bite the bullet. If he goes down, it is better now than later. Let the emotive orang UMNO go through the repercussion of losing power. Should he survive, he could buy time and work on his turnaround plan.
The absurdity is looking to be very reformasi style. Dato Khairuddin Hassan will soon make claim of arsenic poisoning and HIV virus injection. There is also the drama leading to his arrest and re-arrest.
Not forgetting, Xavier Justo's confession mentioned Clare Rewcastle and Dato Tong Kooi Ong wanted the stolen data fast to do a number on the ringgit, government and Najib. Since Clare was reported saying she could get other info from Tun Dr Mahathir, what does that mean?
Not only Hitler said the above, his Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbel had a famous quote: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating, people will eventually come to believe it."
This fight is about power and truth does not matter. As was said, "Fact does not matter, (so-called) principle matter".
Zeti sabotage Ringgit down?
Ringgit got worse over the Aidil Adha and since Tan Sri Zeti's damaging words on 1MDB, ringgit went down further by more than 2,300 pips to touched the new low for this run of about 4.45 (1 pip = 0.0001).
So the words of a former currency trader pales in comparison to a central bank governor. Won't blame those with no inkling of market mechanics. It is the one on the phone making spontaneous decisions and put the trades that move market, not procrastinating bureaucrat without balls.
Currency traders may not be academically inclined in their assessment, but are street smart and logical. They would have interpreted her words as to mean Bank Negara Malaysia could not do anything since she already passed the buck to Government.
Her only action was to say the economy was in fine form but only ringgit had problem. That was a mild hand off statement. There was no serious intervention, no interest rate policy change, and various other application of tools and instruments to curb excessive speculation.
A deep negative perception was allowed to sink in because Najib's public relation is poor. Zeti's statement worsen things by telling the market to go ahead and we are not wielding the stick.
The "close friend" in the message sent as quoted in the posting here is not just any corporate Dato or Tan Sri. And the same source claimed she was carrying out someone's instruction to sabotage the ringgit. Whose instruction would that be?
At one time, this blog claimed it makes no sense that Tong was involved in starting the ringgit decline. Not that there is a change of mind but Xavier Justo's confession brought about a rethink. Why not?
DO NOT BE SURPRISE THERE WILL BE A RETHINK ON NAJIB SHOULD THE UNDISPUTED AND UNDOUBTED PROOFS ARE REVEALED.
In the meanwhile.
Zeti may have good reason to be showered with accolades but her ability was only applicable during peace condition. In a crisis, she failed miserably and resorted to blame game to absolve herself from responsibility. There could be basis had she did something, but she did nothing!
Anticipating more personal attack on moi's short of Phd qualification, not being rich, and preferred a modest life...
Jalan Alor terrorist?
Last night, a report came out that the US Embassy raised a terrorist warning on Jalan Alor, Kuala Lumpur. The report below:

US Embassy issues advisory for Jalan Alor over possible terror threat
PETALING JAYA: The United States Embassy in Kuala Lumpur has issued a travel advisory for Jalan Alor due to a possible terrorist threat.
In a statement on the embassy’s website on Thursday night, it said the advisory was issued based on credible information regarding a potential terrorist act. It advised US citizens to avoid Kuala Lumpur’s Jalan Alor and the immediate surrounding areas on Thursday.
“For all other locations, the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur reminds US citizens of the need for caution and awareness of personal security.
“In the past, terrorist organisations have on occasion planned their attacks to coincide with significant dates on the calendar,” said the embassy.
It reminded US citizens to remain vigilant while travelling as they may be targeted by extremist groups regardless of the country they are in.
“Review your personal security plans, remain aware of your surroundings, including local events and monitor local news stations for updates.
“Maintain a high level of vigilance, take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security, and follow instructions of local authorities,” advised the embassy.
The Straits Times reported Thursday that an alert has also been posted on the Australian government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website.
“Due to a possible terrorism threat, Australians are advised to avoid Kuala Lumpur’s Jalan Alor (Alor Street) and the immediate surrounding areas on Thursday 24 September.
The level of advice has not changed. We continue to advise Australians to reconsider the need to travel to the coastal region of eastern Sabah, and to exercise normal security precautions in Malaysia overall,” the alert said.
Police have said no terrorist threat existsBernama report said police have given assurance that things are under control. Is Bernama spinning to sabotage?
Bujai here wondered: "...on what basis did the US and Australia issue such warnings without even consulting our police and the Foreign Ministry? Or did the warning is related to a threat by the Red Shirt to hold another rally in the capital?"
And, this blog pondered why would the US and Australian only put out alert for Jalan Alor and not the whole city or country as any paranoid western government would behave? Business must be bad for the prostitute for Jalan Alor that they need to resort to terrorism.
Al Jazeera absurd story
Al Jazeera put out a documentary to claim Sirul revealed to someone and it was leaked to Al Jazeera that it was Abdul Razak Baginda that shot Altantunya. Such absurdity should not be given credibility with a response.
However, Tun M's latest blog posting called on government to response. To response for what?
As Tan Sri Musa Hasan said here there must be a police report made and new evidence uncovered to warrant a review of the case.
Sirul is not new evidence. He was allowed to go on trial to defend himself but he was only giving a conspiracy statement from the dock than as witness to defend himself. At least Azrilah attempted and in his statement lay the blame on Sirul. All along it was Azrilah that ordered Sirul to kill for money!
Before revealing something interesting, read Dato Salleh Said Keruak response below:
Aljazeera just came out with a documentary that is a rehash of an old story and presented as if it is a current development. Why Aljazeera wants to spin this distortion, some of which are merely lies and speculation, leads to a suspicion that an ulterior motive may be the reason.Why Al Jazeera spinning this story?
Everything featured in that documentary is based on hearsay and not based on any tangible evidence. They even re-enacted various scenes with voiceovers, which give an impression that this is evidence whereas the scenes were actually played by actors. How they concluded that these scenes are an adaption of what really happened is not explained. In fact, Aljazeera admits that the scenes are re-enactments.
Aljazeera featured private investigator Bala’s so-called testimony, which he changed so many times. Aljazeera failed to also mention that the French police recorded Bala’s testimony in Paris but they found his testimony inconsistent and unreliable that they decided not to include it in their findings.
The focus of the Aljazeera story is that Altantuya was the interpreter for the submarines contract, something that happened even before she came onto the scene. The French police in its report said that Altantuya never entered France during that period, and neither did Razak Baginda or the Prime Minister. This Aljazeera did not mention.
Statements recorded by the French police confirm that the French submarine supplier never met Altantuya or know about her. In fact, there was no need for a French-speaking interpreter since all negotiations were done in Malaysia and not in France and everyone spoke English, the language used in the submarine negotiations. And the most important point of all is that the submarine deal was between the French and Malaysian governments and not between individuals.
The Prime Minister has denied ever meeting Altantuya or even knowing her. But the Aljazeera report is based on Bala’s statement implicating the Prime Minister, which even the French police who investigated this allegation had said was unreliable and inconsistent testimony.
This is a classic case of facts being weaved with fiction, with more fiction than facts, and stories that had been floating around and which were never substantiated being the basis of the Aljazeera report. I can only classify this Aljazeera report as naughty and malicious with a sensational story being presented as the truth.
It is Mary Ann Jolley that made the documentary for Al Jazeera. She is with an independent film production company and not under Al Jazeera's employment. Did Al Jazeera paid for her or someone else?
The person claimed to be the go between Najib and Sirul is one Abdul Salem bin Ahmed. Does anyone knows he used to be a Managing Director of an Engineering Company that bribed Sime Darby top management in the Sime Engineering fiasco several years ago?
Conveniently, he turned around to be crown witness and the Sime Engineering GM is in for 27 years prison. Morally, he is a confirmed corrupt. How could Mary Ann give credibility to a statement of a corrupt?
Does it make sense for a Najib go-between and Managing Director of an Engineering Company involved in international deal to use a modest handphone similar to a Nokia?
There was a former army Captain that went around claiming to have met and knew Sirul was going to disappear to Australia.
And, it seems Sirul refused any such money from a someone that offered money for him to make an SD against Najib. He said, "Aku tak tahu hidup atau mati lagi. Apa pentingnya duit ni!"
Is the former army Captain the one offering the money or is he working in cohoot with Abdul Salem? We are not telling because it is mere suspicion.
Sirul does not need the money because he will be living in the detention camp forever on Australian government courtesy. Who advised him to make that move?
In the detention campt, it is only lawyers and family that can see him. Sirul come from a humble family that as Tun M described the mother could not speak when meeting him but only could cry. Suddenly the documentary quoted they have a family member in Australia named Frank with a deep Australian accent.
There are many suspicion on the Altantunya case but most of it could not survive court scrutiny. Till a new evidence surface, it has reached its finality.
Maybe someone should ask as to how come Sirul could disappear and not appear at Federal Court for judgement? The accused should be there!
Tun M is refloating the Sirul story by giving credibility to the absurd Al Jazeera documentary.
The Al Jazeera documentary appeard at about the same time WSJ report that Dato Najib is under investigation by FBI and Rupert Murdoch added nasi tambah (second helping of rice) of a Grand Jury. It's taking FBI rather too long to apprehend Najib in New York for questioning.
Sirul story was planned to be the final nail on Najib's political career.
One VVIP had gone around viralling a message many months ago to accuse Datin Seri Rosmah as the killer but it never caught on. Was the concocted story changed to Razak Baginda to sensationalise it in accordance to the propaganda principle of Hitler and Goebbel?
It is heard that the VVIP flew to Qatar where Al Jazeera main office many months ago. One plus one equals two? Maybe not likely to be him because he is out of touch.
More absurdity from Lim Kit Siang. He did his favourite thing to call for RCI. How can a murder case go for an RCI when it has underwent judicial due process?
Perhaps Pak Lah must come out in the open and tell the world that Tan Sri Gani Patail advised him that Najib is not involved and there is NO CASE against Razak. That way it is more believable for public to understand why Gani went ahead to charge and bomb out without a prima facie.
All these serve to create commotion and endless propaganda to tune the public mindset into irrationality.
If the commotion created continues to prevails and Najib's new think tank insistent in the same style of last minute explanation and awkward robust action and propaganda, his days are numbered.
The Al Jazeera documentary turned out in that manner because someone close to PM likely to be Paul Stradlen and Dato Habibur Rahman got her deported. She got even and started to spin.
And she made a nasty remark that Razak did not deny accusation. The likely senario is Razak is not giving credibility to such slanderous accusation with a response.
Najib's team need to buck up.
