Is DAP taking on Chinese underworld?


Though he is thick skinned and combative, FT Minister, Khalid Samad must privately felt embarassed by Dato Najib's trolling and his inability to troll back despite repetitive attempts. Blogger Husin Lempoyang attributed it to his lack of wit and position as Minister.

Nevertheless, Khalid is still better in gaining public attention than Teresa Kok. Her attempt to create an issue out of the Sungai Buloh Kwasa Land failed. She got Sankara Nair to do pussy-footing and her own bushing of Najib but the attempted 1MDB spin was shadowed by WSJ report of a China bailout that could likely be orchestrated by her party comrade.

Khalid could get the publicity from the massive probe into 74 projects approved in the past by DBKL. He gave a "garang" and no nonsence warning to errant premises owners failing to pay assessment tax

Hope Khalid is able to do so and prove he is a better FT Minister than elder brother, BN's Tan Sri Shahrir Samad. New broom sweep well and he could bag something out of the probe. It is not so much the revelation that the controversial Medan Imbi property raised by DAP since March 2017 is allegedly built illegally on FT Land and Mines Office land,

But, it is about the identity of the mystery owner, which turned out to be fallen Heavenly King, Datok Koo Tee Yam.

Outdated, reckless Foreign Policy affecting CH farmers


In his 22 years as fourth Prime Minister, it is not customary of Tun Dr Mahathir to participate in any by-election.

That practise is about to end as he announced plan to campaign at Cameron Highlands on 25th, a day before polling on January 26th and a day after Council of Rulers should make their decision on the new Agong.

Maybe he campaigned in earlier by-elections, but this time, he made extra effort to secure Orang Asli votes for DAP by getting Attorney General Tommy Thomas to help the campaign and sue Kelantan government for infringing on the land rights of the Temiar Orang Asli.

Obviously, PH campaign is not doing well. DAP's third attempt using the same non-local as candidate is repeatedly tripping. A home run issue is needed to change the trend. More so, Mahathir needed to win DAP's support to stay beyond March.

DAP's strategy to focus on Orang Asli and consider Chinese voters as taken could backfire. Current strain in relation between Malaysia and Singapore is affecting the livelihood of Chinese Cameron Highland vegetable farmers. Faced with lower output, their problem is compounded by Singapore switching source to the Phillipines.

Farmers are faced with rising cost of insecticides which raised cost by 50%. Lim Guan Eng's disasterous management of the economy are also hurting farmers' informal sources of funding.

Time for Anwar to make his move


Wind of several former UMNO MPs making U turn to retun to UMNO had reached this blogger's attention.

Since the gun was already trained at Dato Seri Hishamuddin for working hard to get UMNO MPs to jump ship and his devious game during party election despite being too coward to run, it was held back.

The timing was not appropriate and important messages need to get across first.

Hisham was the person orchestrating it for Tun Dr Mahathir and Dato Seri Azmin. TMJ confirmed him as a snake. His last effort to remain relevant is to position himself as UMNO Sec-Gen.

Since Dato Najib published it in Twitter, it is no more secret.

DG Immigration: By hook or by crook and the pot of gold?


In 2012, this blog coined the word PTD Mafia to express disgust with the degradation in the British copied system of elitism in the civil service.

The issue raised was with regard to self serving PTD in the civil service pay raise and covering up their own in the film censorship of animation movie, Beauty and the Beast fiasco.

When the taskforce NRRET was doing raid against rampant smuggling activities in 2016, it was partly due to PTD Mafia dragging their feet, doing lip service, covering up their own and in some instances, on the take from criminal syndicate.

Civil servants had to turn a blind eye as to not bring out the fury of their PTD bosses.

All those raid done by NRRET came down to nothing because the then AG, Tan Sri Gani Patail and assisted by a Jessica did not press charges. There were rumours as to why it happened.

The MACC boss then was Tan Sri Abu Kassim and he kept quiet. Not sure, what he meant to claim he and Gani established NRRET to address smuggling activities but misused for politics.

Why then the political rebranding of NRRET to NFCC and claimed as a new centre to plug the leak on financial frauds such AMLA causing money to flow out, but turned out merely to replace NRRET?

What happenned to Shafie Apdal and Lim Guan Eng files?

Message from A Time to Kill: Truth without prejudice


It could be about Dato Najib's case or any other cases still dragging its feet in the court.

Najib's popularity is on the up. The public loved his critics and laughed at his troll on the policies of the current Malaysia Baru government.

However, the perception from the years of endless propaganda, slanders and fabricated lies by Tun Dr Mahathir, Tun Daim, Tan Sri Muhyiddin, Tony Pua, Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng, Rafizi etc. against Najib with relate to the 1MDB debacle is so embedded in the mind of the public.

Even among members of the public appreciative of his concern for the peoples' welfare refer him as Robin Hood. The tale of Robin Hood is of an outlaw who steals from the rich to give it to the poor. Mahathir's "pencuri, perompak, penyamun dan penyangak" labelling still stuck in their mind.

After giving the present government, law enforcement agencies, and judiciary the benefit of the doubt to do their job, it is time to speak. There are serious doubts on the legality of the cases Najib is being charged and it is seen as more political than true implementation on the rule of law.

Assuming there is truth in the claim US Department of Justice have all the evidences and received cooperation from all the foreign enforcement agencies. Why are Jho Loh and his conspirators not charged under criminal law but civil law?

Hisham UMNO Sec-Gen, GPNM new Malay coalition


If you have been following Reggy Jessy's Third Force, you would have notice him repeating of Tun Dr Mahathir forming a coalition of 125 Malay-Muslim and Bumiputera MPs without DAP.

Latest is in his international conspiracy theory from an unnamed US source.

Let's cut through the chase and get out with it.

If it is according to plan, the name of the coalition would be Gabungan Perpaduan Nasional Malaysia (GPNM). The core members are MPs from PPBM, PKR and UMNO that have and will quit their respective parties.

Anyone's first guess could be right to believe GPNM would be led by Tun Dr Mahathir-Dato Seri Azmin-Dato Hishamuddin Hussein Onn.

That is exactly what two sources told and confirmed. Ini kaw punya sumber, which is as kaw or better than the SB Reggie Jessy claimed could know the color of his underwear.

Is there more to the abdication and replacement of Agong?


Something really happened on January 2nd.

It was the day rumour began to spread of DYMM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di Pertuan Agong would abdicate the Agong-ship to return as Kelantan Sultan.

It came about when the Council of Rulers was to meet for an unscheduled additional day.

There were the denial from the Kelantan state government with warning on circulating fake news. The Palace made a press release on His Majesty resuming duty.

His Majesty was seen at Friday's prayer in Kota Baru. By Sunday January 6th, it was no fake news. Palace issued statement to confirm the abdication.

The question being asked is: WHY? One blame is on the Malaysia Baru government.
