Trillion ringgit?

FMT - Our 1 Trillion Ringgit Proton

Gobsmacked! I am truly, by the suggested sum involved.

Incidentally, 1 trillion ringgit is RM1,000,000,000,000 or one million million ringgit or to use current/vogue numbers, wakakaka, one thousand billion ringgit.


above based on US$
if size of US$ is about the same as the ringgit
then a pallet of notes is RM1 million
RM1 trillion is depicted in those million pallets

3,500,000 Protons were sold between 1985 and 2013. If the trillion ringgit story is true, then in simplistic maths, each Proton would roughly amount to RM285,714, say round it down to RM285,000.

Nice car, the Proton.

Two Bugis - one down, one left

Good article by Aspan Alias in FMT today. It's titled Muhyiddin became both the bait and the victim.


Moody, did you feel something sharp & painful in your back?
Yes Tun but no one's behind us except Jibby

In it Aspan tells us that Muhyiddin has brought all his woes upon himself when he played (stupidly twice) to Mahathir's tune, first in bringing down AAB in which he had a leading role. The article stated that Aspan reminds us, not because Abdullah had done wrong, but because Dr Mahathir Mohamed did not wish to see him run the country any longer.

And Muhyiddin played ball, I suppose, imagining (foolishly) he would be the successor to AAB.

Recently, Muhyiddin was once again more than a willing captive to Mahathir's wish to get rid of a further PM, but this second time around he failed.

Aspan claimed that Mahathir, feeling lonely in retirement, still wants to be involved in the country’s administration. I think Aspan has been polite and kind to Mahathir when it's more likely that the Old Man still wants to RUN the country, and not just get involved.

We have witnessed him, as just one example, chewing up firstly AAB and then Najib over the crooked bridge.

It's known Mahathir has a few pet hates and to his immense ire both AAB and Najib failed to observe those hates. But that's because to do so would have mean they individually and respectively were not running the country as PM, and Mahathir was. No one wants to be a puppet.

Regarding his pet hates, from reading the news I could speculate on a few, namely, Singapore, Chinese ascendancy over Malays, and anyone who f* around with his kids. The last has been why he has been angry with KJ and now Najib. But Najib has been guilty of all three.

But Mahathir has been right at least on one score, that Najib was wasting his time and resources on Chinese as they won't vote for his BN.

Ironical, hasn't it been? I have spoken to quite a few elderly relatives who praised Najib as caring for giving them financial subsidies through BR1M, yet the Chinese in general have refused to support Najib as PM, but have been prepared to support Mahathir to depose Ah Jib Gor.


Mahathir had demanded that Najib stop BR1M. Somehow I suspect that if BR1M has been exclusively for Malays (like the NEP), perhaps Mahathir might not have raised any objection.

So, when Najib said no to his demand to stop BR1M and to recommence work on the crooked bridge, that was the beginning of a Mahathirian raft of anti Najib issues, for example, to re-open the Altantuyaa's murder case, etc.

Why wait until so late to raise that murder case when two murderers have already been convicted? Why not raise this issue earlier, during the court case? Would he have raised these issues if Najib had cancelled BR1M, recommenced work on the crooked bridge and supported Mukhriz become one of UMNO VPs?

Back to Muhyiddin - after Mahathir used him to force Abdullah’s resignation, instead of rewarding Muhyiddin as the poor bloke had expected/hoped, the emperor of Malaysian politics anointed Najib instead, wakakaka.

I suspect that Mahathir had then trusted Najib over Muhyiddin to mentor and nurture his Mukhriz into the highest echelon of UMNO hierarchy, probably because he believed he and Najib have 'family kamcheng' (hutang budi), whereas Muhyiddin was probably seen as treacherous in his willingness to sabo AAB.

Karma for Muhyiddin! And indeed for Mahathir too!

Initially as PM, Najib did make some (perhaps half-hearted) efforts towards appeasing Mahathir, making Mukhriz a deputy minister when he wasn't even the UMNO Youth boss as KJ had then been, and not appointing KJ the UMNO Youth as a minister. Another of Mahathir's pet hates is KJ.

Yes, KJ indirectly created history of sorts, wakakaka, when he as UMNO Youth Chief was NOT appointed a minister while one of his Youth juniors/subordinates became a deputy minister. I'm not sure what Najib said to KJ to placate that disappointed Youth Chief, wakakaka, but I bet Mahathir's name would have been mentioned.

In the end no ruling PM could have tolerated the interfering intrusions into his policies, programs and rule by a nonagenarian who is supposedly retired but who still believes he is the emperor of Malaysia. I suppose that's when Najib avoided him for months, which Mahathir complained about.

And really, was a PM supposed to report to him at regular intervals?

Sometimes I wonder whether Najib regrets granting financial subsidies to some Chinese through his BR1M which had been one of the reasons why Mahathir became very angry with him.

That M-anger must have been compounded humongously when Najib agreed to jointly develop the KTM land in Singapore with the Lee government without any evidence of giving Mahathir what he has always wanted from those pesky Sing Chinese, to wit, a bridge to replace the causeway, new rates for Malaysian water, etc.

Aspan finally informs us that Muhyiddin has been discarded (like a used tissue paper?) by his user after having failed. Sadly for the former DPM, I also suspect Mahathir doesn't think too highly of his capability to be PM.

In Muhyiddin offering himself as a willing captive (yet stupidly again) to another Mahathirian scheme to remove a sitting PM, he made himself into both the bait and eventually the victim, and thus deserves no sympathy from us. Live by the sword, well, die by it.

Incidentally he's also a Bugis, a kakinang (teochew for clansman) to Ah Jib Gor, wakakaka. I wonder whether he would now say, "I'm a Bugis first, a Malay second and a Malaysian last!"

Now, our sweet boy Mukhriz is really who the emperor wants as PM but alas, there's still a big gap between Mukhriz and the highest echelon of UMNO hierarchy. And who's to be blamed for introducing poor Mukhriz to UMNO politics late? Hmmm, perhaps he had somehow imagined Najib would be by then the PM which gnam gnam would fit into his grand design? 

You know what? If Mahathir doesn't act soon to sponsor someone who is willing to mentor, nurture and nurse his boy, it's highly probable that Mukhriz may become another casualty of UMNO politics as Muhyiddin has become. And time's running out too.

I wouldn't be surprised if the next 'conversion attempt' may well be of Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, wakakaka, who's afterall just a heart-beat from becoming PM, a gnam gnam candidate to look after his nice young lad.

But will Ahmad Zahid be tempted and as foolish as Muhyiddin had been, indeed, twice over?


dei I'm Javanese you know, not so tai-siao lah

Worms in Najib's eyes?

Recall my earlier post Holy Grail of evidence against Najib? in which I mentioned that if anyone were to have suffered a heart attack recently, rather than the spurious report of BNM governor Zeti Akhthar Aziz having one, it would have been more likely the NS MB, Mohamed Hasan, because he was reported to have allegedly attacked the PM, wakakaka.


Yes, there was an audio clip circulating around in our current political-insurgency war, wakakaka, in which the poor NS MB was supposed to have endorsed Muhyiddin and also called for the arrest of Najib, which of course he most strenuously denied. Wakakaka.

And despite his protestation, he must have still been worried to bits about his position with Ah Jib Gor because he has now come out swinging with all his might to show both his loyalty to Najib as well as his UMNO-ness.

Malaysiakini reported the following regarding our dear Mohamed Hasan:

(a) Negri MB roasts Muhyiddin for not backing Najib in which he ... roasted former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin for not giving his full backing to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

He also appeared to laud Muhyiddin's ouster from the cabinet.

"If you have problems with your boss, you're the one who should leave, not your boss," he said in a fiery speech at the Seremban Umno annual general assembly today.


It has to be said that at least MIC's P Kamalanathan has shown far greater 'loyalty' than an UMNO man, wakakaka - so much for that much touted UMNO-Malay loyalty.

(b) Let BN partners die, Umno can take NS alone which reported:

... Mohamad Hasan today said Umno can capture the state on its own without the need for other BN component parties.

As such, Mohamad Hassan said the struggling BN component parties should be left on their own.

"If the others want to die (mampus), then let it be.

"I'm suggesting to (Najib) in the 14th general election, don't follow their demands.

"Instead, give all the Malay majority seats to Umno,” he said during his speech at the Seremban Umno annual general asembly this morning.

He's right in a way because he knows MCA, MIC and Gerakan can't deliver the votes for BN. But what he might not really understand is that though the 3 mentioned clowns in BN might not be able to deliver substantial number of non-Malay votes, they still have support of, say, around 15% of the 'nons', and which may prove to be the deciding ballots in a tight finish.

This is wonderful news for DAP and perhaps even GHB. If DAP and GHB can get their acts together, and if our 3 clowns take offence at Mohamed Hasan's UMNO go-it-alone tirade, there may be a possibility of the new coalition winning Negeri Sembilan in GE-14.

Hope when that happen (UMNO losing NS) Mohamed Hasan won't burst into tears as former Perak MB Tajol Rosli Ghazali did on hearing the results on the evening of 03 March 2008. Utusan reported:

Tajol Rosli kunci pintu dan menangis



KEDIAMAN rasmi Menteri Besar Perak dikawal ketat oleh polis malah dikunci bagi menghalang orang ramai memasukinya di Ipoh, semalam.



IPOH 9 Mac – Kekalahan mengejut Barisan Nasional (BN) Perak pada Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-12 semalam merupakan sesuatu yang di luar jangkaan banyak pihak terutama Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Mohd. Tajol Rosli Ghazali.
Beliau yang berjaya mempertahankan kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Pengkalan Hulu dikatakan hanya mampu menangis di kediaman rasminya bersama penyokong dan pemimpin kanan UMNO negeri malam tadi.
Berita kekalahan demi kekalahan calon BN juga membuatkan beliau terkedu hingga enggan menemui orang ramai dan pihak media yang berkumpul di kediaman rasminya sejak pukul 8 malam.
Hasrat pihak media untuk mendapatkan reaksi dan ulasan mengenai kejayaan pembangkang juga terbantut apabila beliau tetap mengurung diri di dalam rumah tersebut.
Sehingga ke pukul 6 pagi ini, pihak media masih gagal mendapatkan sebarang komen daripadanya malah wartawan diminta beredar secara baik oleh penyokong-penyokong beliau.


After purging his critics from the cabinet, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has now been urged to also crackdown on his enemies.

The call was made by Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan who said using the law against detractors was only right if they were trying to topple a democratically-elected leader.

"Don't let the worms get into your eyes, you could be blind. I don't want my president to be blind," he said in a speech at the Seremban Umno annual general assembly today.


f* it mate, it was NOT my voice on that audio clip
I'm really innocent

wakakaka

In his fiery speech in Seremban, Mohamad Hasan also lamented about the repealed laws that were previously used to crackdown on dissent.

"When there is no EO (Emergency Ordinance) or ISA (Internal Security Act), that is your challenge. People said don't throw away your weapons," he said.

Aisehman, Mohamed Hasan, I know you have been scared shitless out of your wits by that audio clip but my dear fellow, kau liao lah, don't overdo your bodek-self-salvation act, wakakaka.

Bersih still bersih?

Sarawak Report's claim of a charge sheet, spurious or otherwise, by the former AG against Najib should be considered as part of the continuing war of attrition, retribution and infuriation against PM Najib. Whether there's any truth in the SR claim is yet to be proven though various agencies of the authorities have already pooh-pooh-ed it.


While UMNO goes into covert as well as overt internecine war between the M and N factions, as had happened to many political parties even those abroad like the Australian Labor Party (eg. Bob Hawke vs Paul Keating, Kevin Rudd vs Julia Gillard), the Malaysian Federal Opposition is in a sad state of disarray.

On this basis, if UMNO is not having its current civil war, it would not be illogical to believe UMNO will lead BN to a strong victory in the next general election, which may even provide it with that unnecessary 2/3 majority.

So why is the M faction so against Najib, in now plunging UMNO into grave potential for political disintegration, when it could (if without internal party discord) virtually walk over a disunited Federal Opposition in the next GE? Hasn't that been Dr Mahathir's oft-voiced desire for UMNO?

Indeed, why is the M faction aggravating the situation for UMNO so much so that the M faction's spokesman would say that if UMNO goes to the general election today the party will lose kau kau?

Has it been about 1MDB and the alleged missing RM42 billion? Is that sum missing? I agree 42 billion ain't no chicken feed and we most certainly want it to be fully accounted for. But aren't there an ongoing audit and several investigations including one by PAC?

But 'ere the audit and investigation findings have been completed, many of us (and I'm talking to non-UMNO people) have already taken sides with, ironically, the M faction, led by a man who has been considered as the ultimate uber draconian ruler, and who himself had a few items on the list of less than admirable spending such as Maminco, Forex, Perwaja, Proton, etc.


Why, even the so-called neutral non-politically aligned Bersih is threatening a 4.0 rally to depose the PM.

Yes, to depose of the current PM. Yes, Bersih!

Now, does anyone believe for one second that the M faction has been worried about such a relatively sap-sap-suoi sum (chicken feed)? The adjective 'relatively' means far more billions had gone astray one way or another by a combination of sheer utter waste, mismanagement and even gambling.

And we Malaysians who have witnessed a 22-year period of gross profligacy, want to believe the fox wants to protect our chooks? And relatively chicken-feed lil' chooks at that too. Alamak, get real lah.

Really, if we view the umpteen government f*ups in perspective as they are, relatively that is, shouldn't we be questioning the true reason for the M faction's campaign to depose of the PM?

It doesn't mean we will allow those responsible of any criminal acts in 1MDB or elsewhere to get away, even if he is the PM or indeed former PM.

But let's first wait for the investigations and audit to be completed, instead of being propelled by someone's personal agenda. In this respect, I have been very disappointed with Uncle Lim KS who has been running around like a decapitated chook, urging his former political nemesis, the very people he condemned resoundingly when they were in power, to take over the country.

How men? This is even worse than the deformasi 916. Just remember what our late Karpal Singh said of the attempted though failed 916 coup d'etat, that it was IMMORAL and UNETHICAL! 

And again in April this year, his son Ramkarpal Singh Deo reminded us of that, of what democracy is about!

In a TMI news report titled Working with Dr M to remove PM will be a ‘disaster’, Pakatan told we read (extracts):


“The question of working with Dr Mahathir is an unimaginable disaster waiting to happen.

“There can be no doubt that Malaysia needs to be saved. While I agree that Najib ought to go, I cannot agree with the means by which Dr Mahathir proposes to do so,” Ramkarpal said in a statement here.

“Asserting pressure on a democratically elected prime minister to step down cannot be democratic and it is high time that Pakatan Rakyat come together at this very critical time against Umno and the Barisan Nasional (BN),” the DAP MP added.

Ramkarpal said that working with Dr Mahathir would mean that PR would just be maintaining the status quo and allow “corruption to continue”.

“I am firmly of the view that saving Malaysia can only mean a new clean, accountable and transparent government."

“Pakatan Rakyat must live up to its promise to Malaysians of being that alternative and democratically oust Najib and the BN through the ballot box,” Ramkarpal stressed.


Uncle Lim KS, please take note.

As my late mum always counselled me, don't get involved in another person's selfish fight for his own selfish interests. If we have to fight let's do it independently, with fairness and with clarity as to our purpose.

But the most troubling organization to throw itself into the M vs N war, wittingly or otherwise, seems to be, as mentioned earlier, Bersih, once a much hallowed name, at least to me.

Who or what is Bersih? Wikipedia tells us (just relevant extract):

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Malay: Gabungan Pilihanraya Bersih dan Adil) or Bersih (meaning clean in Malay) is a coalition of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which seeks to reform the current electoral system in Malaysia to ensure free, clean and fair elections. […]

In April 2010, the coalition was relaunched as an entirely civil society movement ("Bersih 2.0") unaffiliated to any political party.

Let's read its charter again, namely, ... which seeks to reform the current electoral system in Malaysia to ensure free, clean and fair elections.

So? Is it Bersih's charter to depose of an elected PM? Has Bersih gone songsang-ishly partisan from its original charter? Personally I suspected so when Bersih praised a former RMAF officer as a hero, and for what you may asked, but for violating Armed Forces Council Instructions.

Then I knew that unless someone wise up the new chairperson of Bersih the organization will soon lose its perspective.


More than ever, for Bersih to seek to reform the current electoral system in Malaysia to ensure free, clean and fair elections, it must not, nay, NEVER ever encourage the military to get silly ideas of going political - keep those soldiers back in the barracks. Don't believe me, ask Yingluck Shinawatra.

Okay, you may think all the above are just kaytee's prattle tattle, wakakaka, but let's take a look at an article posted in the renowned loyarburok website, where we would be able to read Why I Will Not Attend Bersih 4.


It's about Abdul Haleem, a Bersih-rally veteran, telling us of Bersih's double standards in not taking a strong stand against PKR's nonsensical misuse of the election process in the KajangGate by-election (I call it the rancid Kajang Satay event), yea, not even a slap on their wrists with a coriander stalk wakakaka, and also of allowing a certain party wakakaka to hijack its Bersih 3.0 rally which then saw civil disruption. The article said:

On both previous rallies — though it was organized by Bersih — on the actual day, it was hijacked by the political parties. On Bersih 3, all hell broke loose when clowns from PKR got hold of the mic and started the fiery speeches which were very provocative. The cops were no angels too. During Bersih 3, the moment this particular political figure started his provocative speech, me and my friends got up and left the scene for some chilled drinks. By the time we finished the first drink the whole area turned into a war zone. We don’t need to be reminded of police brutality during Bersih 3. I surely don’t want to see innocent young ones beaten up for taking part on a democratic process. I don’t think this time around is going to be different. The Home Minister is also the DPM since yesterday and the Kebab still going mad for all the wrong reasons.

It was the story of Tonto sending up naughty smoke signals, wakakaka.

On 02 May 2012 Dina Zaman wrote in The Malaysian Insider’s The Bersih that wasn’t as follows:

But now I see videos of protestors breaking down the barriers and committing acts of violence. And yes, while the police showed more restraint this time they were behind some of these as well. Al-Jazeera journalists reported via Skype that their equipment was smashed by policemen to prevent them recording some of these acts of violence.

Despite suffering from the teargas effects I myself have not the spirit to summon the moral indignation I would like to have, because although they should have done so lawfully I cannot blame the police for taking action against violent protestors.

What can we Malaysians expect post April 28 2012? With a video circulating showing that Anwar Ibrahim and Azmin Ali had ordered the Dataran breach, this does not bode well for Pakatan and the rakyat. This is a massive public relations disaster. The average Malaysian like me can only tear her hair out.

And now we are told that the duo were signalling to the police. What is this — Tonto and the Lone Ranger?

As I said on Twitter all this resembled a Hindustani film. Throw in a tree and a pair of sarees and we'll have a great sandiwara.

By the by, coincidental or not, I have been told that Anwar Ibrahim loves Hindustani films, wakakaka.

Meanwhile in the Malay Mail Online, Praba Ganesan wrote Bersih's cart before the horse in which he mentioned (extracts):

Where do I stand?

Why the animosity, some might ask. I don’t have any, I’ve been at all the Bersih rallies and been successfully gassed each time — though they do not match the sheer madness of the 2007 Hindraf rally.

So I have had skin in the game.

I want them to succeed because asking for fair and free elections resonates with a population long suspicious of intentions when it has the words politics, power or democracy.

They thrived on that for years.

However, a cursory look at their website presently will show that they are hardly bipartisan this time around.

They might want to clear the air about being more about process and less about fitting one group’s agenda.

They might want to avoid being like the politicians they work hard not to mimic. When Pakatan Rakyat — new, old or in transition, you tell me! — say two years after the last general election that 52 per cent of the country are with them, eyes roll. The majority of the country voted on May 5, 2013 for Pakatan because they were of the opinion on May 5, 2013 Pakatan deserved their vote.

There is no basis for Pakatan leaders perpetually asserting they speak for the people, because of one voting day. While a democratic vote is valuable it changes too, and no one owns the votes except the people. Politicians have to earn the vote over and over, day after day till the next election.

Politicians don’t own voters just because they got a lot of votes at any poll. Same applies to activists, they don’t own protesters just because they showed up the last three times. They have to ask, and they have to ask before deciding — or risk appearing not dissimilar to the neo-feudal overlords they confront. People are not pawns, I believe that is the gist of Bersih. Perhaps they should read their own propaganda.

So declaring in lieu of the seismic shifts in power without consulting the people who will form the frontline of any Bersih rally is hubris.

To call for a rally within 24 hours of events — some of them still unravelling

A bit premature, whichever manner it is examined.

Hmmm, it seems kaytee is not the only one who sees Bersih as no longer an entirely civil society movement unaffiliated to any political party, which wants to reform the current electoral system in Malaysia to ensure free, clean and fair elections.

Not only that, as Praba Ganesan said, Bersih seems to be in undue and arbitrary haste to get involved in a political battle for which its charter doesn't provide for.

Holy Grail of evidence against Najib?

Following Muhyiddin's ouster, someone (you-know-who, wakakaka) has started a new war of retribution.


The Malay Mail Online informs us:

A video recording was also leaked last night showing Muhyiddin claiming to guests at his Damansara Heights house on Tuesday that RM2.6 billion in 1MDB funds were channelled into the personal bank accounts of Najib.

Malay Mail Online was unable to immediately verify the authenticity of the leaked video, but former minister Tan Sri Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir, who was present during the meeting, confirmed the incident captured on camera was genuine.


And of course we know on whose side is Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir, wakakaka.

We've also hear of a video audio clip in which the NS MB was said to have call for the arrest of Najib, but that proved false as that poor bloke, Mohamad Hasan, the NS MB, has strenuously denied that claim. Wakakaka.

Then there's the story of Zeti Akhtar Aziz, the BNM governor having a heart attack which again has been refuted by BNM. Malaysiakini reported:

Talk has also circulated that Zeti, who is part of the special task force probing the allegations against 1MDB, has resigned from her position.

However, this was also proved to be false.


The likelihood of anyone suffering any heart attack would probably be the NS MB who could have felt sporadic palpitations in his chest on hearing he was implicated in an attack against Najib, wakakaka.

In fact I would know how he must felt because I too was once accused of verballing my boss. What saved me was at the time it (the fabricated badmouthing) occurred I was fortuitously away in a very remote near-inaccessible part of Malaysia, quite quite far away from the office where I was supposed to have verballed my director. The asshole tattler (nay, not just a tattler but a) liar-assassin didn't check my whereabout when he fabricated the lie, wakakaka. But when I heard the accusation I must admit I initially felt what Mohamad Hasan would have felt.

The Muhyiddin's video is now touted as a Holy Grail, indeed as 101% gold plated evidence, even though lawyers said that's only hearsay and worthless in court.


Malaysian political holy grail can come in any form, including sperm specimens

wakakaka

Mind, politically the lie would be very useful as Malaysians love such hearsay, rumours and most of all, surat layang whether this be the traditional type, written or oral, or the modern version (Facebook, emails, twitters, etc), wakakaka. Maybe that's the real intention, not that we weren't aware of Muhyiddin being an 'interested party' given his sacking by Najib.

Every which way it takes, yes the new anti-Najib campaign has been launched, where we are likely to see this underground war of retribution, attrition and infuriation continue ...

... at least until Najib has gathered the guts to launch another counter attack, which he must if he doesn't want to end up as toast.

Kua Chee please, wakakaka.

Someone went to Muhyiddin's house

If you're thinking I am referring to my dear friend Mukhriz you're wrong, wakakaka.


what do you mean did my dad okay the visit? wakakaka

Nor was I referring to Zufkifli Noordin, as I expected a bloke like him to be a matey of "I am Malay first, Malaysian second" Muhyiddin.

After all, why would I want to post about Mukhriz going to Muhyiddin's house after the latter was sacked from the cabinet when it's well known in Malaysian political circle that Muhyiddin has always been Dr Mahathir's man, and the man Mahathir had probably expected to mentor Mukhriz all the way eventually into the PM's position.

Notwithstanding the fact that Mahathir's wish has now suffered a setback, most of us would have expected Mukhriz to pay a solidarity visit to Muhyiddin's house, at least to strategize or re-strategize, wakakaka.

And who knows, that setback might only be temporary as Muhyiddin can still make a comeback if Ah Jib Gor screws up kau kau. As Anwar Ibrahim could have told him, ‘There’s many a slip ‘twixt cup and lip’, which Anwar found that out to his invincible distress in 1999.

Yes, I believe it has been this narrow miss by Anwar at the highest political office, just by a hair’s breath at the eleventh hour, on the cusp of his ascendancy to the highest political position in Malaysia, that has made the man super-geram, a frustrated anger beyond normal boundaries, even sending him into unbridled rage.

It has been a terrible experience that has tormented him since, more so he now sees his once-Youth Chiefs becoming respectively the PM and now also the DPM, while he languishes in prison.

So, if I were Ah Jib Gor, I would not be too complacent yet as I'm sure our dear eminence grise wakakaka would no doubt be cooking up something right now, as he once did against Anwar.

Okay then, the bloke I read going to Muhyiddin's house as the former DPM fumed at home at his sudden loss a la Anwar, was our next dearest matey, P Kamalanathan, yes, he of the hand-kissing fame, the one who had sucked up to Muhyiddin in 2010 during the pre-election campaign in the Hulu Langat by-election in 2010.

Look, when Dr Mahathir was on the ‘outer’ during PM AAB’s era, he commented that people who once kissed his hands were ignoring or even badmouthing him. That sort of confirmed that those hand-kissers (who subsequently ignored him) were insincere Bodek-ites.

In 2010 Kamalanathan, the MIC (or should it be UMNO) candidate for the Hulu Selangor by-election was photographed kissing DPM Muhyiddin’s hands. Kamal tried to deny it when asked, but alas for him, he was as mentioned photographed in that act.


as passionate as I was when I kissed my girlfriend's hands, but probably more dignified as I was too outrageously greedy with my sweetie's hands

wakakaka

Aiyah, if you wanted to kiss Muhyiddin's hands, why then denied that?

Anyway that was 5 years ago, so what can we make out of his very recent visit to Muhyiddin's house after poor Muhyiddin was sacked from the cabinet?

Did that mean Kamalanathan (call me 'Kamal' or 'Nathan', wakakaka) was sympathetic to the former DPM or felt his 'future' has been inevitably tied to Muhyiddin's fortune?

Wait, Kamalanathan has been deputy Education Minister to Muhyiddin so I wonder whether he went there to ask Muhyiddin, "Tan Sri, mohon serah semua kunci pejabat kepada saya sekarang." Wakakaka.

But 'Kamal' or 'Nathan', wakakaka, should at least be relieved Palanivel is now out of MIC, or at least out of power in MIC, as the latter hadn't taken kindly to him when he was appointed by UMNO over the MIC proposed candidate (Palanivel himself) for the Hulu Langat by-election.

Hmmm, I wonder whether he kissed Muhyiddin's hands when he last visited the former DPM? Wakakaka.

God has been busy in Malaysia

Najwa Mahiaddin, Muhyiddin's daughter, said his dad's fate is in God's hands.

hmmm, sweet god, she's not bad

Ahmad Zahid humbly said his appointment as DPM is God's will.

Anwar Ibrahim must have exclaimed OMG or alternatively WTF-that-punk? with a degree of jealousy when he heard his former (1999) budak Kaam-See-Tui* is now the DPM.

* suicide squad a la Kamikaze


You-Know-Who might have sighed a big sigh of (also) OMG, remembering the new DPM once claimed his admonition of young Zahid in 1999 was just a father-to-son advice, but wondering who to back now with Muhyiddin gone.

Pak Haji Hadi no doubt would be consulting God on what to do next.

I wonder whether Ah Jib Gor would have said "Thank God. I have finally found the backbone to do what I should have done long ago!"

Busy day for God.



Lalang 2?

Is this happening now?



PKR gone Islamic a la PAS in Sarawak?

From Sarawak via Malay Mail Online's In pre-election blitz, PKR grooming candidates to know Sarawakians better

old and new moons

... the future of PKR’s partnership with DAP in Sarawak now also looks to be in jeopardy.

DAP’s Sarawak chapter had previously said that it is withdrawing from talks with PKR over seat distribution for the state polls due to the latter party’s ambiguous stand on hudud.

also in the same report:

According to PKR’s elections co-director Nurul Izzah Anwar, her party will focus on 28 state seats in Sarawak for the polls.

[Hope none of the 28 are currently held by DAP, wakakaka]


PKR has also finalised its list of potential candidates, she confirmed, although the state’s opposition parties are still negotiating the seats. [...]

“For Sarawak, we want to champion the ideals of the party to prove that it’s a truly Malaysian party.

We have also been pushing a narrative to the Sarawak people, that Islam is against racism, that Islam supports a civil state.... and this idea has been well-accepted by our Sarawak leadership,” she said.

It appears that Nurul is promoting the idea of an Islamic State given her emphasis on the support of Islam for a civil state and that the religion is against racism, true or otherwise, depending on our personal experience and perception.

So, has PKR now become an Islamic party like PAS, which may explain why DAP Sarawak has refused to talk with PKR due to the latter's "ambiguous stand on hudud".

What do N Surendran, Sivarasa, Xavier Jayakumar, Tian Chua and my dearest Eli Wong have to say?

Muhyiddin crossed the Rubicon

Well well well! It seems good olde Muhyiddin Yassin, yes the very same quiet but low browed "I'm a Malay first and a Malaysian second" DPM, has finally made his move against Ah Jib Gor.

where the Rubicon river was/is

Did he do it to obey Mahathir? Who knows but my bet is yes, Muhyiddin must have finally accepted the push desperate shove by our eminence grise to depose Ah Jib Gor from the PM's position (and of course by default, from the UMNO party president appointment). Desperate needs require desperate moves, as desperate goes!

In his I told Najib to quit 1MDB but he didn't listen, it has been reported by TMI as follows:

He said 1MDB was something that could not be ignored and a solution had to be found.

"I am the first minister to make a stand on 1MDB even though the prime minister had made a decision on the matter. I said we should find a solution, not point fingers,” he said, he had been the most vocal in raising his concerns about the matter at the Umno supreme council and Cabinet meetings.

Muhyiddin said he had noted that the RM42 billion debt run up by 1MDB was a huge figure and had exceeded the budget allocations for some states in the country and was a burden to the country at a time when the ringgit was dropping.

"I have told the prime minister but I don’t dare say it in public as I fear it will be misconstrued and people will say that I was out to topple the prime minister. I don’t want a clash with the prime minister as our party is not strong,” he added.

Note in particular his "I have told the prime minister but I don’t dare say it in public as I fear it will be misconstrued and people will say that I was out to topple the prime minister".

Now that he HAS SAY it in PUBLIC, can we assume that he no longer fears being misconstrued and that he IS OUT to topple the PM?

This is getting interesting. I'm also now waiting for Pakatan 2.0 to bizarrely HAIL MUHYIDDIN as the new conquering hero, wakakaka, indeed as they had bizarrely hailed Mahathir, Musa Hitam and Ku Li as the needed troika to save Malaysia from the woes planted with poisonous seeds long ago by you-know-who, wakakaka.



Hail Caesar! We who are about to die salute you


To realize Muhyiddin has now gone for broke, irreversibly so, read also TMI's:

Stop attacking Dr Mahathir, it only weakens the party, Muhyiddin tells Umno

Umno will lose if general election held now, says Muhyiddin

If not The Edge, then which source can be trusted for 1MDB reports, asks Muhyiddin


Muhyiddin has finally crossed the Rubicon (or was shoved across by you-know-who, wakakaka) and thus it's either the end of him or Najib. There can now be no reconciliation between the two.

err ... Tun, the water seems a wee cold lah, bolih go-starn sikitkah?

Wakakaka, where's my kua-chee and rojak?
