Not in Mahathir's life will Najib be acquited [Updated]

In a matter of few hours, High Court judge, Dato Mohd Nazlan Ghazali will deliver his decision on whether there is prima facie and Dato Najib will be required to put a defense.

We are now at the parking lot of the Jalan Duta to hear the decision.

Many months ago, a chance meeting in Bangsar with one of the defense council claimed Najib should be absolved but Tun Dr Mahathir will not allow for it.

SRC is a low lying case to prove Pakatan Harapan allegations on 1MDB and SRC against Najib since 2015.

Mahathir's Pakistan arm deal could further strain relation with India

The boycott of Malaysian oil palm by India may not be strong enough a message from India to Malaysia.

Tun Dr Mahathir had to test it further by getting into a military deal with Pakistan. The deal involving 400 anti-tank missile was reported by India's Times Now and uploaded on You Tube on November 5th recently.

Under Mahathir, Malaysia is taking a rather unconventional position on foreign policy to antagonise the superpowers, regional powers like India and even its neighbours.

Few days ago, India expressed reservation from being part of a regional trade pact, RCEP.

Disciplinary complain filed against Hishamuddin

The thrown under the bus with the throw-ee

A call received from a PWTC-based person on Saturday morning tipped-off that Dato Lokman Noor Adam lodged a formal complaint to the UMNO's Supreme Council and Disciplinary Board against Dato Hishamuddin Hussein Onn.

It was about time as few other parties are heard preparing similar complains. Disciplinary Board Chairman was reported in early November confirming investigations done on Hishamuddin and the complaint is the formality required to proceed.

Anger have been mounting for this blatant disregard for party leadership and betrayal on the party by Hishamuddin that was left unaddressed.

Dato Zahid Hamidi received the brunt of the fury following announcement to support Tun Dr Mahathir to finish his term as Prime Minister by 6 UMNO members of Parliament known to be close allies of Hishamuddin.

Their action ignored an announced Supreme Council decision to only allow authorised members to undertake any political negotiation with other political parties.

When Zahid mentioned in his speech at the UMNO Federal Territory convention of taking actions against sabotageurs and announced empowering Dato Johari Gani to take action against two leaders from Segambut and Titiwangsa divisions, it was not received well by UMNO supporters on social media.

Unless he gets Hishamuddin's hide, supporters were sceptical of Zahid's resolve to address the problems of turncoats and sabotageurs within the party. His warning was brushed off as typical political theatrics.

The complain will eventually prove Zahid is serious. Like his previous move to collaborate with PAS, he is stealth and patient in his political moves.

This time a suspended Hishamuddin could upset Mahathir's move to stay in power and forcing him to resign.

Tanjong Piai by-election is a test for DAP

Tanjong Piai sits at the southernmost tip of mainland Asia. In the 90s, there were ideas and proposals to take advantage of the attraction to turn it into a major tourist destination.

However, it never got off the ground. There were no serious commitment from both state and federal government.

Fishery, and local tourism are the main economic activities. Kukup is a popular seafood spot to Johor Baru folks and Singaporean.

The by-election arising from the death of Member of Parliament and Deputy Minister, Dr Farid could be considered as god-sent to give Tg Piai the national attention.

Currently, the political crowd are moving south for nomination tomorrow.

As they exit Simpang Renggam, the constituency of Dr Maszlee Malek and before driving towards Tg Piai, they would be reminded of his promise to offer no toll to vehicle exiting Simpang Renggam.

Politics of broken promises will be the main conversation for the next two weeks till polling date.

A 2010 article on Mahathir making its round on social media

An ole article on Tun Dr Mahathir from Bangkok Post is making its around on social media.

The link to the article on the May 30 2010 posting of a blog, that is dedicated to an unbiased discussion on Mahathir, is being passed around through Whass App messages within the professionals, middle class and elite crowd.

The title, "The corruption of Mahathir" is nothing unusual, but why now? Of all, what is being revealed that have never been revealed before by any other writers?

Since becoming #PM7, nothing he did has come to fruitation. All his moves ended up disastrously. Will the article serve any purpose to assist or exploit Mahathir's shaky situation now?

Do figure it out. It is being reproduced below:

Countering Kua's “I didn’t know we had an Orang Asli prime minister!”

Tun Dr Mahathir claimed himself to be Malay. His Indian bloodline came from his Malayali grandfather, recently great great grandfather, from Kerala.

He maybe lying as it is believed it is his father, but he could be accepted as Malay. His mother is Malay with a Wan title, and constitutionally fulfilled other criteria of professing Islam, and following Malay customs.

In his blog posting to defend his presence at the Malay Dignity Congress, he was lambasted by Dr Kua Kia Soong for the use of the term indigenous.

Kua have been critical of PH government and Mahathir lately for not fulfilling his desired reform. But his remark has racist intent to manipulate and dispute the Malay indigeous status.

It is as though it is only relevent for Orang Asli.

Despite Zaiton's paranoia, insider dare confirmed Najib's TH revelation as true

Zakhir Mohamed in a selfie with Hizamuddin Jamalluddin of TH

The day Lembaga Tabung Haji had to admit a revelation Dato Najib made of the institution still on a sell down mode instead of making fresh new investment, Hizamuddin Jamalluddin, a blue eye boy of Dato Zaiton Hassan was seen doing a selfie with blogger Zakhir Mohamed on his FB.

Hizamuddin became a blue eye willing to "fix" his colleagues with false report, in which it actually save him instead, and was tipped as a possible CEO candidate from inside.

He questioned why a character by the name of Mao "bantai" him. It is quite a typical denial or in-denial reaction of guilt.

If not, why would he expect the Mao character has ulterior motivation? Does it occur to him, ethics, morality and comradeship remain as relevant as ever?
