Read all about it!!

PRIME MINISTER'S OFFICE STATEMENT ON THE ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE AGE AND SYDNEY MORNING HERALD 

1. The Prime Minister totally rejects the baseless smears and insinuations carried in an article “Bribery scandal linked to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak”, published in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, papers owned by Australia’s Fairfax Media group, on July 14.

2. This is a desperate attempt to link the work he did when he was Deputy Prime Minister – which involved countless trade missions to promote Malaysia abroad, and meeting many thousands of people – with the alleged wrongdoings of middlemen who may have happened to have been in the same room as him at some time or another.

3. The article does not contain a single direct allegation about the Prime Minister – and for good reason. There are none to be made and there is not one shred of evidence that the Prime Minister was in any way involved in the case that the courts have already made judgments on, with individuals convicted and punished.

4. Fairfax Media knows this, yet their article persistently attempts to mislead and imply not only that he had some involvement, but that he also might have been a beneficiary of any alleged wrongdoing.

5. Instead of providing evidence to link the Prime Minister to the case, the article relies heavily on a series of slippery, non-conclusive words – “suspected”, “alleged”, “suggesting” – to lead the reader into thinking that the Prime Minister is guilty by association.

6. This is grossly defamatory, and this sly and underhand way of attempting to tarnish the Prime Minister’s name is underlined by the fact that Australian court records quoted in the article state that “none of the named persons [including Mr Najib and Mr Badawi] is a person whom the accused are alleged to have conspired to bribe”. 

7. The article also states: "No overseas politicians have been charged or formally accused of conspiring to receive bribes, with the prosecution case restricted to allegations that overseas central bank officials, rather than any ministers, were bribed between 1999 and 2004."

8. What then does the Prime Minister have to do with the case? This is a case that has been ongoing for a long period of time, and the bribes alleged to have been paid were over the period 1999-2004, during the administrations of former Prime Ministers Tun Abdullah Badawi and Tun Mahathir Mohamad.

9. Yet Fairfax Media chose not to mention Tun Mahathir anywhere in its article.

10. This is despite knowing that the alleged bribes took place not during Prime Minister Najib's tenure, but during Tun Mahathir's; and despite Tun Mahathir being named in the suppresion order regarding the case obtained by the Australian government. Instead, the entire article including its headline and photos focuses on and smears Prime Minister Najib. It may not be coincidental that Fairfax Media claims to have separate information from "high-level sources".

11. It is also worth noting that an order preventing the release of information about this investigation was criminally flouted by Wikileaks. An Australian judge is quoted as saying that this was "a clear and deliberate breach of law", and that the accompanying Wikileaks press release was "full of sensational, inaccurate allegations".

12. The same description could be used to characterise Fairfax Media's article, which is deliberately misleading, malicious and defamatory. The Prime Minister has instructed his legal counsel to take all action possible against The Age and Sydney Morning Herald.

PM speaks...please read and listen carefully!

YAB PM NAJIB RAZAK :-
3 July 2015

"In recent months, various allegations – all unsubstantiated, and many simply outrageous – have been directed against me and my family.‎

These attacks began when I refused to implement Tun Mahathir’s personal demands. I refused, because I do not believe it is right for Malaysia to be ruled by proxy.

Tun then created a crisis when he recklessly claimed that RM42 billion was missing from 1MDB, when in fact these are audited debts backed by RM51 billion audited assets.

The latest allegation is that I have taken state-linked funds for personal gain. I believe Tun, working hand in glove with foreign nationals, including the now discredited political attack blog Sarawak Report, is behind this latest lie.

Let me be very clear: I have never taken funds for personal gain as alleged by my political opponents – whether from 1MDB, SRC International or other entities, as these companies have confirmed.

 It is now clear that false allegations such as these are part of a concerted campaign of political sabotage to topple a democratically elected Prime Minister.

At no point have those making these allegations offered any evidence. All we have heard is that these allegations are based on leaked documents and unnamed investigators. Not once has the source of these documents ever been shown, neither have the documents themselves been provided for verification by lawful authorities.

As we now know, a number of the documents on which recent allegations have been based were reportedly doctored. The person who was leaking these documents is under investigation by authorities overseas for attempting to extort and blackmail his former employer. This says a lot about the reliability of the documents, and those who are using them to damage our government and our country.

Those who continue to mount these attacks should be prepared to face the consequences of their actions. These gutter tactics - in some cases criminal tactics - to overthrow the government will fail. Where appropriate, they will be met with the full force of the law.

It’s a shame that these false attacks motivated by self interest come at a time of unique opportunity for Malaysia – with our Chairmanship of ASEAN this year, and the prize of developed nation status around the corner. I will stay focused on the work of nation building for the people."

Media statement by 1MDB....read it please!

Media statement by 1Malaysia Development Berhad

Issued on 3 July 2015
For immediate publication

1MDB never provided funds to PM

In reference to media reports published earlier today, 1MDB wishes to make clear that the company has never provided any funds to the Prime Minister. To suggest otherwise, as some media outlets have done, is highly irresponsible and a deliberate attempt to undermine the company.

Recent revelations have raised concerns about the veracity of a number of 'leaked' documents which certain media outlets, and online blogs such as Sarawak Report, have used to mislead the public and justify spurious allegations against the company and the government.

According to press reports, these documents were found to have been tampered with, and were being used by an individual - who is currently under arrest in a foreign country - to extort and blackmail his former employer. 

We are therefore surprised that documents such as these, whose existence and authenticity have not been publicly verified, continue to be used as a basis to create new unsubstantiated allegations against 1MDB.

1MDB is currently cooperating with a number of enquiries being conducted by lawful authorities including the Auditor General, the Public Accounts Committee and Bank Negara. These authorities have all the relevant information, and we request all parties to await the outcome of their findings before making further allegations and rushing to judgement.

Of liars, senility dementia and morons!!





The PM and all involved in the 1MDB are now vindicated with the arrest of Xavier Andre Justo, a Swiss national and former official of PetroSaudi International Ltd.

Thai police who arrested him in Koh Samui on Monday charged him with attempting to blackmail and extort the company said it was part of a plot to discredit Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, Malaysian sources.

All detractors who made their baseless and vile accusations on the PM and 1MDB must now retract their statements and apologise for not verifying the information they sourced from Sarawak Report.

According to the NST, “some of the emails and documents published on the blog were found to be tampered with, bringing into question the veracity of these allegations.”

The amount of damage on the prestige, repute, and international standing of our country, our Prime Minister, our economy, and all individuals/organizations accused in this bizarre plot is colossal.

Steps must be taken to take action against all individuals, news agencies, writers who have done irreparable damage because of their footloose and irresponsible accusations. 

That any citizen is ready to assume that anything in the Internet is truth shows the shallow mentality and complete absence of thinking skills.

That writers can churn out article after article, slamming the government WITHOUT checking on the veracity of the purported documents in Sarawak Report is a disgrace to the media world.

It does not take much effort to check the forensics of those documents or to verify the information via a simple phone call.

Months before this arrest, I had already done the investigations and discovered for myself the discrepancies. However, I never shared it because no matter what, majority of Malaysians had already believed the worst of the authorities, choosing to worship unverified evidence and to support the former Prime Minister’s vicious crusade to oust our PM.

Daily, Tun Dr Mahathir’s unending tirade about 1MDB and our PM had practically poisoned the minds of Malaysians against our PM and the professional standing of 1MDB, disgracing our nation in the eyes of the world.

An international cyber-security firm, Protection Group International (PGI) hired to conduct an in-depth investigation into the source of the data published on the Internet, as well as verify its authenticity revealed there is clear “evidence of the systematic theft of confidential company data by Justo prior to his departure from PetroSaudi” and that the “data was tampered with after it was stolen from PetroSaudi. It was believed that much of this tampered data subsequently appeared on Sarawak Report and served as the backbone of the blog’s claims of impropriety against 1MDB.” (More at NST)

SR provided excerpts from emails allegedly sent by the parties involved but these emails DO NOT provide the email header which, according to Wiki forensics, “are lines of metadata attached to each email that contain lots of useful information for a forensic investigator.” Hence, the IP addresses of the sender and receiver of the emails, signature fields, letterheads are missing – all of which can verify the authenticity of the evidence.

The point is SR and all other writers who slammed the Prime Minister and 1MDB officials NEVER bothered to check the authenticity of the documents, preferring to discredit our authorities even though they had all the contact details of those involved. 

Why? Who is behind this malicious campaign? These people must be questioned and punished if found guilty.

As for other public figures, that has discredited our Prime Minister and 1MDB locally and internationally, a public apology on an international scale is mandatory to restore our country’s reputation.

Is Tun Dr Mahathir willing to eat his words?

Idris Jala: Please read my lips, I am not going to repeat it again!


Idris Jala: Let's be logical in one's perception please!
 
OPEN LETTER TO BLOOMBERG

When I read William Pesek’s latest commentary on Bloomberg View, I barely recognised the country he was writing about. He starts by referring to Malaysia’s “underlying economic distress” and “prolonged slow growth”, which he says are caused by “race-based policies that strangle innovation, feed cronyism and repel multinational companies.”

The facts, however, are these:

1. Between 2009 and 2014, Malaysian Gross National Income grew by 47.7 percent.

2. Growth last year was six percent, and over the next four years the OECD predicts Malaysia will enjoy annual growth of 5.6 percent. It would be perverse to characterise this as “slow”. By contrast, the Economist reported last month that “The European Commission is forecasting growth in 2015 of 1.5 percent, which would be the euro area's best outcome since 2011.” A growth rate nearly four times that of some of the most advanced economies in the world hardly suggests “distress”.

3. Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak launched Malaysia's 'Economic Transformation Programme' in 2010. Let me highlight some key achievements:

- Firstly, in the last 5 years, annual investment growth has been 2.5 times more than in the preceding years. Each year, total investment reached a new record for Malaysia. The bulk of this investment is from the private sector. If the private sector has no confidence in Malaysia as alleged by Mr Pesek, why would they put in record investment year on year under the Najib administration?

- Secondly,‎ the country's fiscal reforms are being successfully implemented, cutting Malaysia's fiscal deficit for the past 5 years, while keeping public debt at only 53% of GDP. This level of public debt level is far lower than in many countries, such as the US, UK, France, Japan and Singapore.

- Thirdly, as detailed in the World Bank's Global Economic Prospects report 2014, Malaysia’s efforts at reducing poverty have been a great success, virtually eliminating absolute poverty to less than 1 percent. Since 2009, the income of the bottom 40 per cent households has increased by a compound annual growth rate of 12 percent, even higher than the national average of 8 percent. Inflation has been kept in check at only 2.4 percent. And through the implementation of minimum wage legislation, we have lifted 2.9 million people immediately out of absolute poverty.

- Fourthly, we touched the lives of 5 million people through rural roads, electricity and water projects. This represents possibly the biggest government expenditure over a 5 year period in the history of Malaysia. All of these were done in the name of inclusive economic development.

4. That should be enough to dispel the suspiciously negative picture Mr Pesek paints. But let me address some of his other inaccurate accusations too.

As for the alleged failure to “dismantle race-based policies that strangle innovation”, let me quote from a report in a respected international news organisation:

“Malaysia eased rules governing overseas investors, initial public offerings and property purchases, peeling back decades of benefits to ethnic Malays… Foreign companies investing in Malaysia and locally listed businesses will no longer need to set aside 30 percent of their equity to so-called Bumiputera investors, Prime Minister Najib Razak said today. He also raised overseas ownership thresholds in the fund management industry and at local stockbrokers.” At Initial Public Offerings, “Publicly traded companies will no longer have to meet any Bumiputera equity requirement under today’s liberalisation measures.”

If Mr Pesek disagrees with any of the above, perhaps he might discuss it with his editors. The report was published, after all, by none other than Bloomberg.

5. At another point, he writes that Prime Minister Najib has “deepened the economy's reliance on oil and gas production”. The International Monetary Fund believes otherwise. The headline on its “Economic Health Check” report this March was: “Favorable Prospects for Malaysia’s Diversified Economy”.

6. Mr Pesek rounds off his imaginative piece of writing by declaring that “the ringgit's fluctuations are a decent summary of the country's wayward course in recent years”.

Perhaps he would like to discuss this with Malaysia’s Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz, one of the most admired central bank governors in the world. She has repeatedly said that the ringgit is undervalued. Here is what she said recently: “When the oil price plummeted, the wrong perception of the degree of dependence of the Malaysian economy on the oil and gas sector led markets to think that we would be more affected than others. Of course the ringgit is undervalued. It doesn’t reflect our underlying values, which are solid and strong.”

7. Mr Pesek’s opinions do not seem to have a strong connection to the facts. He gives away his true agenda when writes that “Asia-based journalists have missed Mahathir Mohamad since he left office in 2003” and suggests “a return to old political leadership” is “urgent”.

It may be that nostalgia for the past and his distance from Malaysia have clouded his judgement, and led him to write an unsubstantiated hatchet job on the current prime minister in order to please a former prime minister about whom he gushes, his “mercurial governing style and fiery rhetoric made for great copy”.

He certainly seems to have changed his mind about Tun Mahathir. Only last year he wrote: “The insular and jury-rigged system of affirmative action, national champions and fat subsidies over which Mahathir presided now holds the economy back. The Malaysian leader also had a tendency to embarrass his nation on the international stage with his nutty anti-Semitic tirades.”

He concluded: “Malaysians must find fresh inspiration by looking forward, not back to 1990.” We agree. Why does Mr Pesek now think we should look back to a system he described in such a derogatory manner last year?

8. Malaysia has undergone an impressive economic transformation under Prime Minister Najib and the country is on course to reach the goal of becoming a high income status nation by 2020 – as the figures and achievements I have mentioned above make clear.

Because of our achievements, I was invited to share our experience at both Harvard and Oxford Universities this year. At the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, I had the privilege to share Malaysia's success story with government ministers from many countries. Last month, I was invited to share our experience with Russian cabinet ministers in Moscow.

9. I wonder why it is that many countries and institutions can see the progress we are making, but Mr Pesek chooses not see any of it? His latest outburst is consistent  with a serious of slanted articles that unfairly run down Malaysia and its leadership.

10. Differing opinions are bound to be expressed on Bloomberg View. The defence of “fair comment”, however, does not apply to getting facts so woefully wrong. We would hope that the editors at Bloomberg agree, and will correct or take down such a disgracefully biased and ill-informed article.

Yours,

Hear ye! Hear ye!


 
Anifa Aman a politician extraodinaire....



OPEN LETTER TO THE NEW YORK TIMES EDITOR

1.     It is regrettable to see Tun Mahathir seeking to undermine his own country in the international media as part of a personal political vendetta. Read more here.....

2.     It is irresponsible of any citizen, let alone a former prime minister, to spread lies and distortions about state owned companies – saying for example that RM42 bn is missing from 1MDB to create public anxiety, when in fact these are audited debts backed by RM51 bn assets. These reckless claims have affected market sentiment towards Malaysia.

3.     Furthermore, it is telling that he continues to mount his attacks, rather than wait for the findings of the enquiries currently being undertaken by Malaysia’s central bank, Auditor General, and parliament’s bipartisan Public Accounts Committee. This shows that Tun Mahathir is not interested in answers from the appropriate lawful authorities. Rather, he is just using 1MDB as an excuse to topple the serving prime minister, Najib Tun Razak.

4.     And all because his personal demands, as Tun Mahathir himself has acknowledged, are not being met. Prime Minister Najib, as Malaysia’s democratically elected leader, will do what he thinks is right for the nation, and will not allow rule by proxy.

5.     Tun Mahathir told the New York Times that UMNO “lacks vision and talented people”, that it “has become a repository of patronage-seeking politicians”, and that members “try to keep out people who are more intelligent than themselves”. But it is Tun Mahathir who led the party for 22 years. It was he that, during his time, worked to cultivate ‘yes men’ and entrench his position – even introducing a quota system for the UMNO presidency to prevent challengers – rather than bringing in talent and strengthening the party. It is Prime Minister Najib who democratised the party constitution to make it far easier to challenge him for his job.‎

6.     For Tun Mahathir to accuse Prime Minister Najib of acts “verging on criminal” is simply outrageous, and entirely false. It is a measure of the reforms put in place under Prime Minister Najib’s administration that Tun Mahathir has the freedom to be so vocally critical of the party and government he once led.‎

7.     But Tun Mahathir is abusing that freedom, and his privileged standing as a former prime minister, to indulge in reckless and baseless personal smears against Prime Minister Najib and his family. Most Malaysians would rather see Tun Mahathir retire gracefully than continue to damage the standing of his own country for personal political gain.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad plagiarised The Malay Dilemma?


Did he plagiarised this book from someone else? I doubt it!


Did the former prime minister of Malaysia plagiarised his famous book The Malay Dilemma? What a humdinger of a piece of information if true! But I doubt that it is.
At least this is true according to this frantic caller to me.
Started with a phone call from somebody I did not know who said he had lots of information indicating Mahathir had copied his famous book The Malay Dilemma from another late veteran Umno politician from up north.
The caller said he has the original book written by this veteran which was published much earlier then Mahathir's Malay Dilemma, complete with chapters that were  similar to the other book written by the late veteran Umno politician.
He said he even had letters from the first prime minister urging the late Umno veteran to sue Mahathir for plagiarising his book.
I said with a yawn, if that informations were true then show them to me  at least I know.
He said he was not ready yet.
I said yeah right show me when you are ready, ha ha!.
When pressed for more he revealed a bit more on this humdinger of a news that the veteran late Umno politician whose "book" was copied by Mahahtir was once an Umno Information chief and was also Malaysian envoys to several countries, though he did not revealed which one.
He said he will give the proof  to when the time is right.
Out of curiosity I asked why he called me and where he got my cell number, he said I was the right person to call since he thought and actually believe I work for the present prime minister,
What a crackpot! I do not work for Najib for the record!
Then I told him what the point of telling such a story? He said this is not a story, his information was for real!
Then I added: "Just like the story of 1MDB and Najib full of BS? A real story?"
 He said: "My information is real wait until you see it."
Yeah right, nowadays you can spin anything.  The country is so toxic I am getting sicker.
I shall wait for this humdinger of the news and even they are real I will probably destroy them.
Why? I do not want more toxic new to permeate into the minds of easily duped Malaysians!

Arabisation of the Malays must be checked! Hurrah for a brave voice!


Marina Mahathir. Took me a while to realise but she pesonify the progressive Malay women of Malaysia and not many of them are around anymore


Arabisation of Islam in Malaysia is critical and it must be checked.
The Malays are the most easily influence group in the country and Umno leaders are now using Arabisation of ISlam for more firm control over them.  Malay women are given a "gentle suasion" (read: do it or suffer) to be more subservient to their Malay men.
I feel  that over the last almost 60 years the Malay culture is slowly deacaying into a natural death where all aspect of the beautiful Malay culture where baju Melayu, baju kurung and kebaya are not seen anymore and women are encourage by the Muslim-Malay male dominated political system of the country to practice "tribal Islam" rather than the progressive one.
For this dudes, I am with Marina Mahathir, I may have not agreed with some of her stance in the past but on this score I am apt to agree with her.  Marina on this subject I am with you keep it up you have my complete support.
Below is an artilce which appeared in Malay Mail online:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 KUALA LUMPUR, May 23 — Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir has criticised the “Arabisation” of Islam in Malaysia amid the institutionalisation and growing conservatism of the faith here.
The social activist pointed out that that it is very difficult to find traditional “baju Melayu” for women during Hari Raya as Arab attire like kaftans, which are long tunics, became more popular instead over the years.
“This is just Arabisation. Our culture — it’s colonialism, Arab colonialism,” Marina told Malay Mail Online in a recent interview here.
“Kaftans are easy to wear. But what happened to our tradition, culture, everything? It’s lost,” she lamented, pointing out that Malay women below 50 generally do not know how to tie the ‘baju kurung’ skirt so that it falls into pleats and makes it easier to walk in.
The eldest child of former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Islam’s biggest problem in Malaysia is the fear of knowledge of the religion itself.  Read more here....

The prime minister, in his blogsite, replies to all unfounded allegations made about him.

  1. Najib on Altantuya's issue, and he said:-
  2. This case has been investigated, tried and concluded in the Federal Court. It is a nine year-old case without end as it continues to be “recycled” by the Opposition.
  3. As it was a lengthy court case, the appellants had ample time to give their full account and tell the courts everything. So why are we listening to individuals whose testimony have already been given and who have been found guilty of the crime?
  4. What is important is that the judgment brings justice to everyone, most importantly to the family of the victim, to the accused and even to me.
  5. I have stated many times that I have nothing to do with this issue, and even sworn an oath on the Quran in a Mosque.
  6. The people must take into account that in politics, many issues keep being played up, and this is one of them. It became hot at a time when I was PM in waiting and the Opposition needed a way to prevent me from advancing. Because the two bodyguards had worked for me, and Razak Baginda was a friend and associate, they tried to connect the dots to me. Razak Baginda has openly admitted to the relationship with Altantuya but in no way did I have any knowledge of it. Pakatan and their media have irresponsibly tried to play the psy-war game by trying to implicate me and influence perception. They even went as far as to superimpose a photo of me, dining with the victim in a restaurant. In this era of social media, these things go viral uncontrollably, including the superimposed photo

On behalf of those who feel the same way........!


First and foremost let me humbly apologise for "re-printing" an article from Din Marican's blogsite on the subject of former prime minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad incessant attacks on the country's serving prime minister, Najib Razak.
I have always respected Din Marican's civilise write ups on many subjects which I considered as more intellectual rather than infantile in style.
In this particular open letter to Mahathir he is not praising Najib, but rather criticising the former prime minister's incessant attacks on the country's working, working very hard, prime minister.
Din is saying to Mahathir something akin to an adage: those who live in glass house shouldn't throw stones, and it basically means: You should not criticise other people for having the same faults that you yourself have.
This famous blogger dubbed a DJ Blogger, wrote something that many of us want to say or write but dare not for whatever reasons.
So here goes nothing:-
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------






OPEN LETTER to Tun Dr. Mahathir Bin Mohamad


By Din Merican
Rosmah-Mansor-Perdana-MenteriBoleh ka?
As someone who admires you over many years, it pains me to read about your political tussle with the incumbent Prime Minister, Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak, concerning his administration. It is also sad to note that our Prime Minister has not responded satisfactorily to issues you raised with regard to 1MDB financial affairs, the brutal murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, the Mongolian model, and the management of the Malaysian economy.
Most of us agree that the Najib administration is incompetent, inept and corrupt. But there are some differences of opinion about whether he should resign or stay in office. Apparently, UMNO, of which Dato’ Seri Najib is President, is solidly behind him. Key leaders of the party including his predecessor, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the Youth Wing, and your critics in UMNO have pledged their support.
Najib is confident he can hold his own against your incessant attacks and those of pro-Mahathir bloggers like Dato Kadir Jasin  and  Syed Outside the Box, among others, that he can ignore you and allow his supporters to launch  a series of counter-attacks against you and your associates. You have been checkmated by a much younger leaders........Read further here!

Why Mahathir wants 1MDB to fail!




To defy Dr Mahathir’s wishes, at his prime no less, would have great personal cost and Ani must have known this, yet he bravely stood his ground. Indeed he was effectively kicked out of TNB for his defiance, as he told KiniBiz in the interview.

When I was kicked out, no company would touch me,” reminisced Ani in conversation with KiniBiz, adding that many companies at the time had ties that link back to YTL. “So I worked for foreign companies for a while.”

But he did not express regret at his decision – far from it. An often-repeated statement from Ani is that he does not wish to have his grave urinated on, a grave insult in the Malay culture, for dishonest dealing in life." The late Ani Arope.

If you are one of the loony, er I mean lonely Mahathir choir boys, I am betting you don't know that MalaysiaKini has come out with the first issue of KiniBiz. Well, now you know. There are two big write-ups on Mahathir in the fortnightly:
1. The study of contrasts between LKY and Mahathir, and
2. The man who refused Mahathir

I am sorry to tell you boys that your idol fared very badly - like, very very badly - in the battle of the bulge with the late Lee Kuan Yew. But that's understable. Even the Singaporeans think their so-called founding father, whom they were not really fond of while he was still alive, was the better man.
What's really damaging to your hero, boys, is the interview with Ani Arope. KiniBiz describes him as The Man Who Refused Mahathir.
The interview could not have come at a worse time. Here's why. Mahathir has been scoring a lot of points attacking Najib over 1MDB, accusing the Prime Minsiter of incompetence, alleging that RM27 billion has disappeared into thin air, etcetera. You boys have been happily repeating the allegations (although I guess you guys don't really know how to read let alone read audited accounts!)
The late Ani Arope, in the interview, is telling us a different story altogether. It tells us of a plan by Mahathir, using the Economic PLUNDERING Unit or EPU, to create power producers that would enrich cronies (Francies Yeoh, Ananda Krishnan, Syed Mokhtar AlBukhary, among others) and imporverish the people and Tenaga Nasional Berhad.
Ani Arope saw this. He refused to play along. He was sacked ONE WEEK after saying refusing Mahathir. Before that, a major power breakout was "arranged" to show to the people how inefficient Tenaga Nasional was and why the IPPs were needed. I am not saying all this --- go read the interview in KiniBiz.
After the first IPP (YTL), Mahathir went on to start many more IPPs. These power producers all made big, big money. At who's expense? At the rakyat's, of course. Remember how we all complained about how much we had to pay for electrity. At first we blamed Tenaga but later on, as the years go by, we understood that it was the IPPs.
When PM Najib took over, he must have seen the plundering. So he used the 1MDB to buy the IPPs after telling Ananda, Francis and Syed Mokhtar that their contracts were not going to be renewed, thank you. Next step, list these IPPs in one mega public listing exercise and create and share the wealth with more stakeholders, not just cronies.
Three things will happen together with the IPO :-
1. It will end the ridiculous subsidies that Tenaga Nasional and Petronas had been forced to give to the IPPs year in and year out.
2. The people will enjoy lower electricity tariffs and,
3. the IPPs as we know them will be no more. So will Mahathir's IPP legacy.

Mahathir is not alone in his onslaught of Najib. He was never alone. The IPPs have been with him from the start.  Now boys, go get your copy of the KiniBiz. Rememebr there's a Part 2 of the interview coming in two weeks.

The real reason why Mahathir battling to stop Najib's 1MDB, by hook and by crook (and crooked bridge too!)




To defy Dr Mahathir’s wishes, at his prime no less, would have great personal cost and Ani must have known this, yet he bravely stood his ground. Indeed he was effectively kicked out of TNB for his defiance, as he told KiniBiz in the interview.

When I was kicked out, no company would touch me,” reminisced Ani in conversation with KiniBiz, adding that many companies at the time had ties that link back to YTL. “So I worked for foreign companies for a while.”

But he did not express regret at his decision – far from it. An often-repeated statement from Ani is that he does not wish to have his grave urinated on, a grave insult in the Malay culture, for dishonest dealing in life." The late Ani Arope.

If you are one of the loony, er I mean lonely Mahathir choir boys, I am betting you don't know that MalaysiaKini has come out with the first issue of KiniBiz. Well, now you know. There are two big write-ups on Mahathir in the fortnightly:
1. The study of contrasts between LKY and Mahathir, and
2. The man who refused Mahathir

I am sorry to tell you boys that your idol fared very badly - like, very very badly - in the battle of the bulge with the late Lee Kuan Yew. But that's understable. Even the Singaporeans think their so-called founding father, whom they were not really fond of while he was still alive, was the better man.
What's really damaging to your hero, boys, is the interview with Ani Arope. KiniBiz describes him as The Man Who Refused Mahathir.
The interview could not have come at a worse time. Here's why. Mahathir has been scoring a lot of points attacking Najib over 1MDB, accusing the Prime Minsiter of incompetence, alleging that RM27 billion has disappeared into thin air, etcetera. You boys have been happily repeating the allegations (although I guess you guys don't really know how to read let alone read audited accounts!)
The late Ani Arope, in the interview, is telling us a different story altogether. It tells us of a plan by Mahathir, using the Economic PLUNDERING Unit or EPU, to create power producers that would enrich cronies (Francies Yeoh, Ananda Krishnan, Syed Mokhtar AlBukhary, among others) and imporverish the people and Tenaga Nasional Berhad.
Ani Arope saw this. He refused to play along. He was sacked ONE WEEK after saying refusing Mahathir. Before that, a major power breakout was "arranged" to show to the people how inefficient Tenaga Nasional was and why the IPPs were needed. I am not saying all this --- go read the interview in KiniBiz.

Watch this and think the xenophobic and chauvinist DAP!

The struggle and style of the DAP today are no diference than that of the CPM of yore.  The end justifies the mean for both the DAP and the CPM in terms of policy of trying to control this beautiful multi-racial country named Malaysia.

A feel good story today. Proud to be Malaysian after reading this....!



Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee from Kelantan.....



KUALA LUMPUR, April 12 — At a recent photoshoot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz of prominent scientists honoured by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one woman stood out from the rest.
Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee is the president and leading researcher of an organisation working on the development of vaccines for infectious diseases. She is also a Malaysian, a proud Nyonya born and bred in Kota Bharu.
So, how did this small town girl become one of the most important malaria fighters in the world today?
Tell us about your childhood growing up in Kota Bharu.
My childhood was quite idyllic. My father Sim Seng Watt was born in Sibu and was the Organiser of English Schools under the British Empire in Kelantan in the late 1940s. He taught at the Sultan Ismail College (SIC) in Kota Bharu. Everyone called him Cikgu.
My father would go durian “hunting” during the season and I would tag along in the car going to the nearby kampungs where durians and heaps of mangosteens were sold along the roadside. He told me about the various local flora, the nipah palms along the paddy fields, how to recognise a mango tree, all about rubber and how it was tapped.
I would romp around in the rubber plantation that was behind my home collecting seeds that we would play with. My mother taught me how to plant tomatoes and beans in our backyard.
Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee’s first birthday growing up in an idyllic Kota Bharu. © Provided by The Malay Mail Online Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee’s first birthday growing up in an idyllic Kota Bharu. She also showed me how to catch spiders to keep in a match box! I must have learned the love of science and observation of living things at an early age.
I always felt my education in Kota Bharu was strong even though it was thought of as the hinterland of Malaysia. Our teachers at SIC were superb. The curriculum was outstanding. Students were challenged and expected to perform well.
How did you get into tropical medicine and development of vaccines for infectious diseases?
I received a First Class honours in Physiology and a Masters in Physiology at the University of Malaya. I wanted to pursue a PhD, but did not have the financial support to do so. I applied for a World Health Organisation (WHO) Tropical Disease Research (TDR) scholarship to do my PhD at the Department of Malaria and Filariasis at the Institute of Medical Research (IMR).
I was given the opportunity to work with the other prominent scientists at the IMR. I was sent on field studies in Sabah and other areas where we would work all night collecting blood samples from village to village and house to house.
Later I was invited to join Harvard University as a post-doctoral fellow, where I focused on the molecular biology of the worms that cause elephantiasis and other forms of filariasis.
How has your work changed the way in which malaria and other tropical diseases are treated?
I have been working on the development of an effective malaria vaccine since I started my scientific career. I have identified likely target genes, cloned and sequenced genes, and developed them as subunit vaccine candidates based on one or two of the more than 5,000 genes of the malaria parasite. I was always trying to outsmart the malaria parasite, and this led to wonderful scientific discoveries, but not to a highly effective vaccine.
Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee prepares vaccines in a laboratory in Equatorial Guinea. © Provided by The Malay Mail Online Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee prepares vaccines in a laboratory in Equatorial Guinea. In 2003, I started a vaccine company called Protein Potential LLC. At the same time, my husband Dr Stephen L. Hoffman started Sanaria Inc, a company solely dedicated to developing a malaria vaccine.
Sanaria is developing a whole malaria parasite vaccine, called PfSPZ Vaccine. It is intended to be used to prevent malaria in residents of malaria endemic countries and for travellers and foreign personnel working in malaria-hit regions. Most importantly it is intended to be used to immunise the entire population for malaria elimination campaigns in endemic counties.
We were repeatedly told by almost all of our colleagues that it would be impossible to manufacture a whole sporozoite vaccine. After several years we were successful, and now there is enormous excitement worldwide about our programme since our PfSPZ vaccine approach has shown 100 per cent protection in several studies, one of which has been published in the prestigious scientific journal Science (Seder et al., Science, 2013).
Trials on testing the vaccine are now being conducted in the USA, Europe and Africa. We expect that when our vaccine is licensed and deployed, it will first dramatically reduce and then eliminate the 200 million clinical cases and greater than 550,000 deaths caused by malaria every year.
You and your husband were recently honoured by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). Tell us more about that.
We were honoured by being invited participants on The Art of Saving a Life, a BMGF project promoting the value of vaccines. The Art of Saving a Life tells the story of the impact of vaccines on improving child survival and humanity in the past, present and future. We were honoured for our life-long and on-going work on the development of an effective malaria vaccine.
Was there ever pressure to excel in your field, as a Malaysian professional overseas? Or was it more from personal ambition?
There was never pressure from my family or peers. I do not believe that pressure from the outside can generate the passion, dedication, tenacity and commitment that are needed to excel in any field. I am a driven person. It is my nature to be curious. I love a challenge.
After being a scientific researcher for more than 30 years, I am still in awe of the discoveries that can be made upon close and careful investigation. I am proud to identify as a Malaysian, who was able to use my Malaysian upbringing and education to try to make a significant mark on scientific progress in the greater world.
Do you still identify with being a Nyonya after living and working so many years abroad?
I absolutely identify as a Nyonya. Both my paternal grandmother and my maternal grandparents were Peranakan.
Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee, seen wearing a traditional Nyonya kebaya, is one of the leading researchers developing a vaccine for malaria. © Provided by The Malay Mail Online Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee, seen wearing a traditional Nyonya kebaya, is one of the leading researchers developing a vaccine for malaria. My paternal grandmother only spoke Malay and wore “sarong kebaya” every day without her precious “kerosangs”, which would only appear when she was dressing to go out. I remember fondly my paternal grandmother always plastered white “bedak sejuk” on her face after a morning shower.
I love to cook and my family is into food. I learnt to cook some Peranakan dishes from my mother and still serve them at home today. In fact I have thrown a banquet every Chinese New Year where friends gather to cook, talk about and share their family’s most memorable and traditional meals.
Do your children identify with the work you and your husband do?
We have three boys. The eldest Alexander is 35 and is a lawyer, who is our in-house legal counsel for both of our companies. Without his support and legal acumen we would not go very far.
Seth and Ben are 25 and 23 respectively. They are both in medical school. They have always been involved in our work. We often have had visiting scientists and clinicians who are our close friends and collaborators share a meal or stay with us.
The boys would join us at dinner and come with us on trips to the field all over the world, and have conducted scientific research since high school.
Seth and Ben spent a summer during their undergraduate university time and before medical school working on hookworm and malaria near Ende, in a remote site on the island of Flores in Indonesia. Like Steve and me, Seth’s primary interest is in infectious diseases and global health, while Ben is currently focusing on neuroscience and is in an MD/PhD program.
Do your sons see themselves as entirely American or do they also embrace their Peranakan heritage?
The boys are a complete blend of cultures. When they were young, they were surrounded by many languages. They are most intrigued and amused by Manglish and the way Malaysians string Malay, Hokkien and English all together without heed to language structure!
Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee’s sons (from left) — Ben, Seth, and Alexander — are big supporters of the good work she and her husband Dr Stephen Hoffman do. © Provided by The Malay Mail Online Dr Betty Sim Kim Lee’s sons (from left) — Ben, Seth, and Alexander — are big supporters of the good work she and her husband Dr Stephen Hoffman do. My mother has spent the summers with us for the past 24 years and they grew up with her. They have also visited Kota Bharu many times. In fact Ben is so interested in food and cooking that he took a semester off while at Stanford University a few years ago, to be a student at a chef’s school in Florence, Italy.
In addition to Italian cuisine, he has mastered how to make “rendang” and Singapore laksa, both learnt by painful trial and error in the kitchen. There must have been 20 types of “rending” that he went through before hitting what made him happy!
What inspires you today?
We believe that our PfSPZ Vaccine, a highly effective malaria vaccine, will be available for anyone who needs it, in the near future. This is a statement that makes history. I am living it.

Filling in the blanks for Rocky Bru FOR EASY READING of course!

In earnest, the scan for candidates begins. Talk is that several senior Umno leaders have been approached to possibly take over in the event that Najib Razak decides - on his own free will, of course - to resign as Prime Minister. 
One Sabah politician (SHAFIE AFDAL) was said to have "contemplated momentarily" the tempting offer but in the end shook his head and said no. A well respected politician from down South (MUHYIDDIN YASSIN) has declined (and not for the first time). A vocal politician not far north of KL (NAZRI AZIZ) has turned down the invitation to treat. Wallahualam.
(BM: ZAHID HAMIDI was not invited, neither did HISHAMUDDIN HUSSEIN)
I don't think Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has been formally approached but former Umno & PKR strongman Zaid Ibrahim is strongly proposing the Kelantan prince's name to be our 7th Prime Minister. (We did anticipate this, though. Refer to my March 20 posting Ku Li for PM (A sequel 9 years in the making)In making his pitch for Ku Li, fellow Kelantanese Zaid, for once, agreed with Tun M about this country being "very corrupt" but didn't say who he meant by "leaders who keep close company with business tycoons and get free rides in their business jets"; read h e r e. 
“Corruption has flowed into our national bloodstream to such an extent that it will take generations—if at all—to cleanse the system. Our values must first change. We must first feel that it’s wrong to be corrupt. That’s why, if he truly wants to see some improvements in curbing the systemic corruption, Tun should endorse Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah as the one to take over as Prime Minister after Najib.” - Zaid Ibrahim
Loyalist Shafie
Ku Li, 78 last month, is relatively young (compared with Dr M, who celebrates his 90th this year). Muhyiddin Yassin, the DPM, turns 69 next week. Zahid Hamidi is just 62. Hishammuddin Hussein will only be 54 in August, and Shafie Afdal a youthful 58. Khairy Jamaluddin, who has managed to remain seemingly neutral in the spat between his boss and Dr M, turns 40 next January. I don't think they have approached anyone under 40 for the job but I may be wrong, of course ...

Yes, why bring up Altantuya case after so long?

 

 The frenzy over GST was just like the Y2K frenzy, remember that, over the end of the millennium and in rolled a new one, year 2000. 

Y2K had people stocking up goods, and withdrawing money from their respective banks, many even thought there was going to be chaos and the landscape would be filled with the walking dead.  Many men married another, and many wives were divorced and incest were rife (I was told).  

Well somebody painted the same scenario over the GST. 

Like Y2K, GST frenzy comes to nought, just an attempt to smear the government the prime minister and also failed.

Then there is  this proverbial 1MDB that was supposed to be  a money , a lot of money, filled corporation supposedly to be used by the prime minister as his own personal largess to be used at his own whims and fancies.  Well the prime minister did asked this corporation to be audited, we shall see. And the Public Account Committee (PAC) has also been asked to check by the prime minster himself.  Nothing will come out of it if that was to be used to get rid of the prime minster.

And now this murder and after over 8 years somebody is questioning the case on whether the prime minister is involved.  What can I say, the case was deliberated and yes somebody must be arrested for the murder, but you can be rest  assured that Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak is not involved. 

Meanwhile Sarawak BN is solidly behind Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. Leader of Sarawak largest Iban party PRS, Dr James Masing, said it is not true Malaysians have lost faith in Najib. Read more here....

Below is an article by Free Malaysia Today for us to read and ponder.

 

Why bring up Altantuya case after so long?

April 3, 2015
With so many mysteries surrounding the murder, the guns shouldn't be pointing at Najib alone.
COMMENT
Why bring up Altantuya case after so long?
By Izack Chin
Eight years and six months after Altantuya Shaariibuu was C4-ed to death mercilessly, the case still puzzles even competent investigators.
Yet, Mahathir Mohamad and Lim Kit Siang have suddenly come up with two mind-boggling statements in relation to the case.
Lim said, “Two former prime ministers, Tun Mahathir and Tun Abdullah, should be sent on a national mission to Australia to find out from Sirul who gave the order to kill Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.”
Lim’s statement came just hours after Mahathir asked, “Who ordered the killing of Altantuya?” and said, “It would be very cruel for Sirul to die for just following orders.”
It baffles the ordinary citizen why both have decided to resurrect the issue after more than eight years.
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was Prime Minister when Altantuya died in 2006. Surely he was privy to the most sensitive, delicate and confidential information pertaining to the murder. Surely he would not have allowed Najib to succeed him if he had known that Najib could be implicated. It would be utterly inconceivable and preposterous to endorse a murderer or the mastermind of a murder as his successor. Well, Abdullah stepped down and Najib did become PM.
In the same vein of argument, surely if Mahathir had known at the time that Najib could be implicated in the murder, he would not have handpicked him to succeed Abdullah.
The fact is Mahathir never questioned Najib then and even chose him to succeed Abdullah. Eight and a half years down the road, Mahathir is demanding answers to a very pertinent question he should have asked Najib in 2006 before endorsing him as the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Why are Lim and Mahathir not asking how Sirul Azhar Umar managed to escape to Australia and how Mahfuz Omar made contact with him?
Surely authorities should query Mahfuz on what he knows. Why are all guns pointing only at Najib whereas many other mysteries and grey areas about the case remain either concealed or are reverberating in haunting silence?
Why can’t mature political leaders, the police and all authorities in the case come together and talk? And these should include Mahathir, Badawi and Najib.
Reveal the truth openly instead of running down leaders and, in the process, erode our country’s international standing and the business confidence in it.

MI stands for Malice Intended.


These guys were arrested for not checking their facts or retracting their story or to even apologise....


*newsupdate*

Reuters reported a 16-year-old Singaporean teenager Amos Yee was detained for insulting Lee Kuan Yew on the eve of his state funeral.  Yee also insulted Christian and now being detained without being able to seen anyone except on scheduled time. If found guilty Yee is liable to be jailed for up to three ears. Read here

Meanwhile the news portal editors detained by police for writing an article that placed the Ruler's Council in the most demeaning and precarious  positions, appear to be happy taking pictures while being detained have them posted in face book wearing  a prison garb and all and smiling.
They think they know that the police or judicial systems in the country is a joke and they don't seemed to be afraid of the repercussion, which to them there is no repercussion, that they will be released and become heroes.
Unfortunately, Amos Yee the Singapore teenager detained was actually detained and no one was allowed to see him until he is being judicially processed, unlike our detainees, they are not afraid nor do they feel remorse over what they have done. 
Smiling away like a martyr, no care in the world for what they have done, since they know they will be released and cannot wait to break the law again?  Facebook some more from police station!


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


To start with Pulai MP Nur Jazlan Mohamed, should be charged with something for not thinking like a Malay and as an Umno MP because he does not behave like one.
He thinks the will be a backlash on Putrajaya, read the government and Umno, over the arrest of some irresponsible editors of  a news portal reporting on the Rulers Council. Read here!
He should also be charged for conduct un-becoming for an Umno MP who should be supporting the ruling party and the government, but instead he sows a seed of doubt on the people over the act of the recent arrest of journalists from Malaysian Insider (MI) for misleading the public over the alleged Rulers Council on hudud.
If I read the defaming news I did  not see any shred of error being implied by half-Chinese Nur Jazlan, that MI news report that reported the news on the Ruler's Council allegedly was against the implementation of Hudud.
The way I see it the news was deliberate and not an error, it was reported with Malice Intended
How can any new media or portals write stories without checking and with concrete back-up to back their storied.
Report only the truth and check your facts says Rockybru...
MI probably thought it could get away with the news report when later on it can say "oops we made a mistake, sorry".
Lately a lot of politicians big or small are in a habit of being defamatory but later say sorry as though nothing happens!?  No can do, you make mistake you pay for it or else the country will be in chaos.
Back to pseudo-Malay Nur Jazlan you must at least have some of your dad's Javanese traits of being loyal to your cause.  My question to you is what is your cause or even your raison d'etre.

WHO announced popular weed-killer Roundup causes cancer!


The presentation may be cute but you can die from cancer from using it.
 Malaysian government must take cognisance over the announcement made by the World Health Organisation (WHO) which conclusively announced that common weed killer Roundup, with active ingredient such  as Malathion, is carcinogenic and cancer causing agent.
Roundup, one of the world's most popular weed-killers -- and the most commonly one used in the United States -- has been declared a "probable carcinogen" by the World Health Organization. The International Agency for Research on Cancer, an arm of the WHO, released the results of its review of five herbicides and pesticides on Friday.
The French agency ranks cancer-causing agents in four levels: known carcinogens, probably or possible carcinogens, not classifiable and probably not carcinogenic. The herbicide glyphosate, the active ingredient found in Roundup, was classified by IARC as "probably carcinogenic to humans."
But the classification is not binding, said the IARC. "It remains the responsibility of individual governments and other international organizations to recommend regulations, legislation or public health intervention," the agency said in a statement. According to the Associated Press, the United States Environmental Protection Agency said it would consider the IARC's evaluation.
The IARC did clarify that the new ruling is mostly directed at the industrial use of the herbicide, and that use by home gardeners does not fall under the same classification. Glyphosate is employed in more than 750 herbicide products and has been detected in the air, during spraying and in foods, reports the IARC.
The determination is sure to alarm the agro-chemical industry and particularly Monsanto, the agribusiness giant that is the leading producer of glyphosate. Worldwide annual sales of the chemical are estimated at $6 billion annually. The company put out its own statement Friday: "All labeled uses of glyphosate are safe for human health," said Monsanto's Phil Miller, global head of regulatory and government affairs.
“We don’t know how IARC could reach a conclusion that is such a dramatic departure from the conclusion reached by all regulatory agencies around the globe,” said Miller. Monsanto requested an urgent meeting with the World Health Organization to clarify the scientific basis of the ruling.
A summary of the agency's findings were published in the British journal Lancet Oncology on Friday.

HUDUD is equal to IS! Better believe it!

This is not in accordance to the teaching of Islam! A woman being lashed under Hudud law in Acheh....soon this type of scene will be a common sight in Kelantan and Malaysia!


When Islamic States militants swept through the Middle-East they brought with them the most stringent and parochial interpretation of what they believed and perceived as part of the syariah law.  They subscribed to the hudud law recently passed by Kelantan state legislative assembly.
Remember this, the  IS militants who also believe in Hudud behead non-believers, women raped were punished, if you are caught stealing your hands were cut off.
Non Islamic historical artifacts were destroyed by IS.  Indeed a very limited and strict interpretation of the hudud laws, based on a narrow interpretation of the syariah law.
 Among other stuff hudud is definitely anti women's rights, and under hudud women do not have any rights at all. Read more here an article by Sisters in Islam.
Frankly speaking, what many Malaysians are still slow to realise is IS is coming here and we are still blase about that fact.
The way I look at it is, today IS is in Kelantan, and yes in no time it will spread to neighbouring states by that time the fate and value of our sacred Federal Constitution will be rendered worthless and meaningless.  I just pray for things to be how they were!
ISN'T MALAYSIA BEING CONSIDERED AS  A MODERATE MODERN MUSLIM COUNTRY.....WHAT HAPPENED TO US!?

BILLIONS lost under previous leadership, but no one ordered forensic auditing?

Here is an article which appeared in Free Malaysia Today(FMT) and I am just wondering what is its reason for listing all the "scandals" under Tun Mahahtir rules.
One thing for sure that had not FMT come out with the article Malaysians would have forgotten how a Malaysian bank officer Jalil Ibrahim was murdered in Hong Kong whose body was  dump at Tau Pu Kow district.
How billions lost under PERWAJA etc etc!
As a Malaysian, I am still not happy and satisfied to be told that no Malaysian politicians were involved in the BMF scandal.
The words of Jalil Ibrahim's widow still ring clear in my mind: "I will teach my children to hate the Malay politicians and Bank Bumiputra."  Whatever that meant at that time when it was said to me.
Back to FMT, is it trying to imply that IMDB "fiasco" is nothing compared to billions lost under previous leadership.
And questioning why no Forensic Auditing were conducted  to track down billions that have disappeared then?  I suggest FMT must make known its intent on why such an article was printed! 
FMT do not be naughty, if you start somethig end it please!  Or if you want to tarnish Tun M reputation do it with finesse, but not by innuendo, and supposition

P/S. In so far as 1MDB "fiasco" is concerned everything has been explained properly in print media and the internet but preople would rather read the spins and the lies, rest assured the government led by UMNO will and cannot be replaced with riff raff (or by woof woof)!



By Azizan Abdullah
mahathir2Malaysians must never forget that under former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir there were monetary losses amounting to tens of billions of ringgit unaccounted for, and irretrievable.
These include:
  • Forex scandal in early 90s : RM30 billion
  • The Perwaja Steel Scandal : RM10 billion
  • Bank Bumi scandal: RM10 billion
  • Maminco-Makuwasa Affair RM1.6 Billion
  • Mahathir used Petronas as a ‘bank’ to bail out many companies, banks etc read more here...

The pot calling the kettle black!

"USA PATRIOT is an acronym for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism. Read more here....

Generally referred to as the Patriot Act, it was signed into law with little debate or congress review only 43 days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. In the wake of the tragedy, it seemed to only make sense for sweeping policy changes to be put into effect to help fight the War on Terror.

The American public felt that we were at risk, and our primary concern was feeling safe. In the years that followed, however, we began to question whether the Patriot Act provided too much government interference with too few checks and balances.

Here we will examine the pros and cons of both the original Patriot Act and the new version that took its place in 2006.

Advantages of the Patriot Act
At its heart, the Patriot Act streamlines communications between varying agencies that can work together to investigate terrorist activities. It also provides for easier and less cumbersome means of investigation and surveillance."
Disadvantages of the Patriot Act?  The Act has spread terror in itself, especially to a average Americans that it is now rearing its ugly head....
