Sunday, August 09, 2015 are just an apprentice, learn and absorb, (if you can that is!!)

Has he got what it takes?

He was a politically hungry young man then and he still is today.
The only difference is, he now believes he got what it takes to be the next prime minister in waiting.
Making political waves when the time is right is one thing, but making them at the wrong time show your true opportunist.
I am not sure if I like this guy or not. I know I did not like him when he was a member of the fourth floor boys when his father in law was the PM.
One of the main reasons why I will and can never support him as the next Malay leader is because of his ongoing association with the infamous KH, the most vile person that this country has ever produced.
As the prime minister, I am sure Najib can, or not control him, but somebody must tell him things happen for a reason.
For example, two MACC senior personnel had to be transferred I am sure for a reason.  May be, I am just saying, it has to do with leakages that occur while important investigation is ongoing.
But voicing his displeasure over the transfer, KJ shows disrespect  to his boss the prime minister, and frankly I do not get where he is going to for making such a comment.
I just wish the beast for Najib while he is trying to pull this country together.
Now he has Zahid, his former political as his deputy prime minster, and may be Zahid can be the Cabinet party whip and tell cabinet ministers like KJ to suppress his hunger, if the prime minister is too nice a person to tell people to lay off that is.
I am just thinking out loud that is.  Like everyone, if they disagree with decision made at the top most level....quit. The same applies to you KJ.
As asked by MIC communications and public relations bureau head Datuk Seri S Vell Paari, MACC is not a sacred cow and most definitely not above the law.
He advised KJ to shut-up, well not in those specific words but close.

PM Najib Razak Statement on MH370

On 8 March 2014, flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared. The days, weeks and months that followed have been a period of torment for the families of those on board.

The plane’s disappearance was without precedent. At every stage, we followed the tiny amount of evidence that existed. But, despite the efforts of 26 nations and the largest search in aviation history, from the South China Sea to the Indian Ocean, the plane could not be located.

Neither could investigations by the world’s leading aviation experts answer why MH370 veered off course and went dark. While the plane’s disappearance remained a mystery, we have shared the anguish of those who could find no comfort.

Last week, on 29th July, we were informed by the French authorities that part of an aircraft wing had been found on Reunion, the French island in the Indian Ocean.

Today, 515 days since the plane disappeared, it is with a heavy heart that I must tell you that an international team of experts have conclusively confirmed that the aircraft debris found on Reunion Island is indeed from MH370.

We now have physical evidence that, as I announced on 24th March last year, flight MH370 tragically ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

This is a remote, inhospitable and dangerous area, and on behalf of Malaysia I would like to thank the many nations, organisations and individuals who have participated in the search.

The burden and uncertainty faced by the families during this time has been unspeakable. It is my hope that this confirmation, however tragic and painful, will at least bring certainty to the families and loved ones of the 239 people onboard MH370. They have our deepest sympathy and prayers.

I would like to assure all those affected by this tragedy that the government of Malaysia is committed to do everything within our means to find out the truth of what happened. MH370’s disappearance marked us as a nation. We mourn with you, as a nation.

And I promise you this: Malaysia will always remember and honour those who were lost onboard MH370.

Diam pun salah, cakap pun salah, what exactly do they want?!

By Lims Sian See

This is what a blogger said:

"Well, first they demand that Najib reveal where that money came from if not from 1MDB. And now they say that whatever Najib is going to reveal is going to be a lie. Diam pun salah, cakap pun salah. Apa lagi mereka mahu?"

It was just a month ago when such allegations was first revealed by WSJ on July 3rd.

Understandably, the MACC took some time to investigate this before clearing Najib of the RM2.6b as they probably had to ask each and every contributor to confirm if it is indeed them who contributed. 

Whether it is from one Middle East source as alleged by Muhyiddin in his suspiciously leaked 53 sec video remains to be seen as MACC did not say it was from Middle East and specifially said "donors" and not "a donor".

Malaysians are understandably angry or in utter disbelief when told by MACC that the RM2.6 billion came from campaign contributions by unknown sources.

We now demand to know who are the contributors in order to proof that the RM2.6b was indeed campaign contributions.

This is a VERY FAIR question to ask.

Najib or MACC should release the names of donors - even though the donors may not want to reveal their names.

But people soon forget very fast that 3 days ago on Saturday, Najib had already said that he WILL declare the sources of Umno's political funding.... but only if the Opposition does the same.

 "I can explain the source of political funding only if the opposition also agrees to do the same, DAP and PKR especially,'' said.

Najib said his efforts to legislate transparency in political funding in 2009 were "shot down by DAP", but added that he is ready to make a second effort for such legislature.

"I don't mind, I can list who donates to the party to be transparent but DAP doesn't agree to publicising political funding.

"Why? Because they have something to do hide," he said 

Fair or not?

Thus, if we want to know the donors of these RM2.6 billion, we will need to press ALL parties to show their list of donors too.

Fair or not?

Statement by PM.



28 July 2015

“This new Cabinet ensures that the Government has the strength and unity to focus on my development plans for Malaysia, and the challenges we currently face.

“Following the democratic mandate given to the Barisan Nasional Government in the 2013 General Election, it is my duty to ensure that the Government delivers on our transformation programme.

“The Cabinet must act as one solid team. I welcome vigorous debate, and accept and tolerate criticism or even dissent. However, this process should take place in Cabinet as part of the decision-making process. Members of the Cabinet should not air their differences in an open forum that can affect public opinion against the Government and Malaysia. It is contrary to the concept of collective responsibility that is the foundation of Cabinet Government.

“The decision to replace Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was very difficult, but leadership is about doing what you think is right. To deliver for Malaysia, I must have a solid and unified team moving in the same direction.

“Nevertheless, I thank Tan Sri Muhyiddin for all his work and dedication to the Government and country, as I do all those ministers who are no longer in the Cabinet.

“Barisan Nasional was founded on the principles of unity. That is the hallmark of this nation – and the recipe for our future success.

“Insha'Allah, I believe that the new Cabinet line-up will drive forward the Government’s ability to deliver on our promises to the people at the last General Election. Nothing is more important than the needs of Malaysia and the people – I will always put their interests above all others.‎

“I am confident that, in time, this new Cabinet will increase public confidence in the Government and Barisan Nasional ahead of the 14th General Election.”


Muhyiddin, if you cannot take the heat get out of the kitchen!

Muhyiddin, if you cannot support Najib, just rsign!

As the deputy prime minister, who attended many  cabinet meetings and being given the fact sheets on many issues to be discussed, especially the nitty gritty of the IMDB complexity, Muhyiddin Yassin should then just tender his resignation for not understanding it, and to stop painting gloomy days ahead.

 He made disparaging remarks about not fully understanding the com-plexity of the 1MDB issue especially, and also assumed many cabinet members feel the sameway as he did is a complete lie. Read here
Let's face the fact that Muhyiddin still harbours the wish of being the next prime minister, well he can harbour as much as he wants he has not got it.
I still remember when he demanded an explanation from Mahathir why he chose Pak Lah as his successor, and what Mahathir said, I was told, was something like "you have not got it bro".
While Prime Minister Najib Razak trying to steer the country and to place it on an even keel, politician like Muhyiddin should be supportive, an obvious now not a team player, should be asked to leave. 
Enough is enough eh!

Open letter to WSJ.


The Wall Street Journal takes aim at Malaysia, but once again displays a woeful lack of knowledge and understanding of our country and its history.

Malaysia has been a democracy since independence in 1957. Elections are fiercely contested, and the opposition won five out of the country’s 13 states in 2008. Political discourse is vibrant and noisy. The “voices of dissent” that the opposition’s former leader, Anwar Ibrahim, claims not to be able to hear are dominant in Malaysia’s online news media, which has far more readers here than the print press. If anyone doubts Malaysians’ “fundamental liberties”, they can easily see for themselves how free anyone is to criticise the government on these news sites.

Anwar mentions the recent Prevention of Terrorism Act as “encroaching” on those liberties. But he fails to mention that it explicitly states that “No person shall be arrested and detained solely for his political belief or political activity”. POTA in fact further secures the liberties of Malaysians: both their freedom to speak out, and their freedom from extremists who pose a real threat to the country. Anwar may not take this threat seriously, but the Malaysian government does. 

The WSJ gives Anwar the platform to raise false and politically motivated allegations of corruption against our Prime Minister. Perhaps it might have been relevant for the WSJ to mention that anwar himself was convicted of corruption in 1999. The verdict was not overturned. 

He is currently in jail after a legal process that lasted years. He was first acquitted, then convicted, allowed to appeal, and only when that failed did he go to prison. If he truly believed in his innocence, he could have submitted his own DNA to the court. If the charge had been “trumped up”, as the WSJ falsely says, that would have proven it. But he did not – hardly the action of an innocent man. 

Far from “sowing communal and religious animosity”, the government of Prime Minister Najib Razak early on launched the 1Malaysia policy. This is the greatest attempt in Malaysia’s history to forge a national identity that includes all races and religions, and the Prime Minister regularly attends the festivals of non-Muslims, going to churches and temples to share the celebrations of fellow Malaysians. Anwar and the opposition, however, never supported 1Malaysia. Why not? Was it because Anwar himself had a well-documented history of rabble-rousing and extremism, as well as of spouting anti-Semitic remarks – as the WSJ well knows but again fails to mention.

The suggestion that Malaysia is in danger of becoming a “failed state” would be laughable – if it were not for the fact that some people take Anwar seriously and will believe what he says, no matter how wild or imaginary.

Here is what some other people have said about Malaysia recently:
Bloomberg rated Malaysia as the world’s 5th most promising emerging market in 2015.
The IMF’s latest report on our country was titled: “Favorable Prospects for Malaysia’s Diversified Economy”
A Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations wrote: “Malaysian political discourse is becoming far more open than it was even a decade ago.”
And the ratings agency Fitch recently upgraded the outlook for Malaysia.

This is the truth about Malaysia today. It is a pity that the WSJ has fallen for desperate, unfounded allegations by a politician and presented them as facts – thereby taking sides in internal Malaysian politics.
