LGE-Dr Dzul-Great Eastern's MySalam hoax

MyKMU warned the danger of the recently launched MySalam scheme.

While it looks good in theory, in which the Minister Dr Dzulkifly Ahmad is good at, practicality side only need to look at the failure of ObamaCare. Though erred on Zulkifly's academic background, satire blogger, Husin Lempoyang notice the same.

Perhaps the government side may not find pro-opposition portal MyKMU as credible. Then they may need to read what staunch pro-DAP Leslie Lau's writer, Boo-Su Lyn wrote in Malay Mail Online:

Boo-Su Lyn is as pro-PH and pro-DAP as one can get. She even questioned Islam as official religion which is DAP's spin version to constitutionally defined status as religion of the federation.

Empress Dowager

According to website Definitions, "Empress Dowager was the title given to the mother of a Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Vietnamese Emperor. The title was also given occasionally to another woman of the same generation, while a woman from the previous generation was sometimes given the title of Grand Empress Dowager."

"Numerous Empress Dowagers held Regency during the reign of an underage Emperor. Many of the most prominent Empress Dowagers also extended their control for long periods after the Emperor was old enough to govern. This was a source of political turmoil according to the traditional view of Chinese history."

Jung Chang's book entitled Empress Dowager Cixi caught the attention of the western media with her interpretation on the history of Cixi. In a review in UK's Guardian, Isabel Hilton wrote below:
This approving biography advances a vigorous defence of a woman whom history has often demonised as a venal reactionary: one who murdered without a second thought to protect her own interests, who squandered the national treasury on her own pleasures and who set back reform in China to preserve herself. History often has trouble giving powerful women their due and correctives are in order, but Chang's admiration for her subject can sometimes seem a little unqualified: the empress dowager in these pages was an enlightened, even caring ruler who drove through a modernisation programme. Had she lived just a little longer, China might have become a stable constitutional monarchy. As it is, Chinese citizens still cannot vote.

Political conspiracy theory on stabbing of Maria Chin's son

FT Minister, Khalid Samad is open to an option for sales of the Kuala Lumpur Land and Mines Department to the owner of the Medan Imbi building. The building owner had put the offer on the table. Khalid did say one of the other options is for the land owner to confiscate the property.

Hopefully DAP's Tan Kok Wai would come to his senses and allow the Minister to do his work. Dealings by DBKL or government in areas such as Bukit Bintang may not follow the norms. It is an area where bureucrasy and even rule of law may not work. 

However, a scary incident involving Maria Chin's son raised concern. It could be a case of  bureaucrasy may not find the answer. It is similar to political interference that may have failed justice for the late fireman Muhammd Adib.

On Sunday, after the Cameron Highland's by-election that brought in the first Orang Asli Member of Parliament in history, Maria Chin's 26 year old son was stabbed in a reported botched robbery while jogging at a park.

Surely it would not make sense to link the incident to politics or the result of the by-election. But, why was no money or possession taken away by the assailant?

Lost in CH, "MEROYAN" in KL

With gusto, UMNO Acting President, Dato Mohamed Hasan started making claims. More on the report in The Star here.

It is not only premature, but unnecessary words. BN should be thankful and remain humble in victory. The victory was possible with PAS help. Baru satu brader...

Such language could be misconstrued as arrogant. It was arrogance that made UMNO and BN lifelong supporters turned their back against the party. Instead, Mohamed could tone it down and play victim to send the message PH is cruel, oppressive, and unjust.

Heaven sake, do get out of cliche narrative one gets from Bernama, NST and BH during the Mahathir 22 years era

Manogaran's majority and snap election after Semenyih?

Manogaran has an 8,476 votes majority over Independent Cikgu Salehuddin Osman and 8,524 majority over smart farming advocate, Wong Seng Yee.

However, 8,800 is not enough to overcome BN Ramli Md Noor's 12,038 votes, who won by an increased majority of 3,328 votes for BN.

The former DAP MP for Telok Intan, who once uttered his opposition to the status of Islam as "official" religion of the Federation, wasted his tireless effort to annul MIC's Sivaragh win at GE14.

DAP and PH ran an aggresive campaign at this BN stronghold seat, which was won by BN by slightly more than 500 votes at GE 14.

A win would have strengthened DAP's position within PH and to pull the strings on an exasperated Tun Dr Mahathir, who both DAP and PPBM find each other overbearing.

DAP did not pull any stop, including abusing the position of their nominated EC Chairman, Azhar Harun.

Tony Pua, LGE and PH leaders showing signs of autism

This is not meant to degrade those with autism.

Surely, not to my no-more-little Little Najib that  screamed, "Horror! No sharpener ...!"

WebMD described autism not as a handicap, thus people with autism are not OKU.

To quote the medical website, "Autism is a complex neurobehavioral condition that includes impairments in social interaction and developmental language and communication skills combined with rigid, repetitive behaviors."

More over, "Children with autism have trouble communicating. They have trouble understanding what other people think and feel."

Tony Pua's campaign at the Cameron Highland by-election showed signs he could be autistic.

Prior to that, it was Lim Guan Eng showing similar trait.

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.

No "auta keling" stunt to cover-up commodity "kok" up

Teresa Kok's claimed dubious dealing of the 1,120 acres Sungai Buloh land of the former RRI research station belonging to Malaysian Rubber Board sounded sensational.

RM1 billion lost to suspicious dealing, headlined The Star.

The Edge headlined it as MoF bagged RM780m as middleman in land sale to EPF. With such headline, one can expect Daim's cynical "market wizard", Tony Pua to spin another 1MDB-linked expose and claimed this was the money used to pay for IPIC deal.

One can expect Dato Najib to be called in for questioning by MACC, and immediately, set #5 of charges will be made against him without neither the charge sheet nor Investigation Paper ready.

If so, it would be the most extreme attempt to either stop Najib's FB troll of Lim Guan Eng that embarassingly resulted in U turns in policies or divert attention from Teresa Kok's failure to revive commodity prices and livelihood of farmers.

The cry of Mahafiraun to return

The political nonsense continue today...

All it need is a political spin to exegerate or create a fiction beyond reality to the level of nonsense.

Malaysia kini published an article in Malay entitled: Bani Israel dan Malaysia 2019. It is quite relevent and a good analogy put together.

The Quranic, or for Christian. Biblical story of Moses is the struggle of the children of Israel under the cruelty of the Pharoah of Egypt and the Prophet Moses freed them from bondage to cross the parted Red Sea.

To equate the Children of Israel and Pharoah with Malaysian Baru and UMNO respectively, came off as an exegeration. Could Tun Dr Mahathir be the acceptable Moses that led the children of Malaysia Baru out of the tyranny of UMNO.

It was during the reformasi era that he was then labelled as Mahafiraun.

My Say
