Barisan Nasional’s been SAPPed

SAPP used this window well to make demands which the BN government has long been deaf to. Stuff like illegal immigrants, petrol, etc only serve as tools for this purposes. Speaking of illegal immigrants, who was in charge to bring them into Sabah with fake ICs? I read somewhere that Anwar Ibrahim has a hand in it as he was in the government at that time. Must find more info.

Anyways, the problem is that our UMNO taiko in BN has forgotten the spirit of Federation of Malaysia. Compounding the problem is that current members with some position of authority (real or imagined) lacked respect for constitution or agreement that make a democratic Federation of Malaysia.

All in UMNO has lost direction and much needed courage to rein in the ‘intelligent’ or ‘influential’ ones who must be thinking Malaysia exists for them to manipulate or play around with impunity. Such as these ones.

Collective leadership in BN must be reinstated by today’s BN Supreme Council meeting. I give Ong Ka Ting full permission to push this and send this message on my behalf. Also, please don’t forget to tell UMNO that BN must listen to rakyat and make life happy for rakyat. Cooperate with people to make sound national policies and drive it properly. (keyword is ‘drive’) All within the BN must monitor and sound each other if any runs off track.

For once, MCA, please play your part as 2nd brother. As can be seen in kungfu flicks, 2nd brother’s core duty is to help counsel/offer solutions to big brother if they cannot think for themselves – advise or tell big brother if they make you worry or unhappy or if they have absent mindedly stolen your lollipops.

What’s so difficult for BN to say “Sorry, we will make it up to Rakyat of Malaysia?”

We await strong Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional. Otherwise no meaning or self driven improvement with only one party monopoly the political landscape.

The Kingmakers: Sabah, Sarawak & the 12th General Elections

Sabah and Sarawak the kingmakers??? Perhaps we need to re-think again:

.
A super Deepthroat divulged this:

He went to Dubai alone to meet DSAI. He could not meet DSAI in Malaysia without the others knowing. Went there to cut a deal. In truth what DSAI was saying about the 30 odd MPs who will defect are actually AAB group in UMNO. They know if they lose power all will be lost and that is why AAB since elections have been making popular decisions and showing that is also as progressive as DSAI and when he join PR the public will say he made a right decision. He will continue as PM until the next elections. DSAI will be the power behind the PM. the deal has already been discussed with the PR partners and they have accepted it all. TM , MH ,DSNAR all will be left behind and do not know what hit them. KJ is actually a DSAI sleeper in UMNO.

Was mission was to woo AAB daughter marry her and destroy UMNO from inside. This is DSAI ultimate revenge for all the wrong doing UMNO of TM did to him. Just check and see who sponsored KJ to Oxford. Lately you can see AAB and KJ have been bold.

Just something for all you to chew on and much more I know off. I know a lot because I also walk in the corridors of power that is the power of internet

cheers
xxxxx

if you read below article posted in MT , DSAI is now in Mumbai and out of Malaysia. Flight time from Dubai to Mumbai is only less then 2 hours and they are a lot of flights between these two places , more flights the from KL to Singapore. If you read the article I am posting below you can see DSAI was talking from Mumbai. Any body or even PKR can add any to it.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim Says He’ll Be In Power By September
Posted by Super Admin
Saturday, 17 May 2008

MUMBAI, INDIA: Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said Friday (16 May) he would have enough support to topple Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s government by September.

Anwar told reporters that his People’s Justice Party needed just 30 members to gain a simple majority in parliament. His party controls 82 seats in the legislature.

“By our calculation, we should move before 16 Sept,” he said during his visit to Mumbai, India’s financial and entertainment capital, for a lecture series on “Human Rights Awareness.”

The date is significant as his country celebrates 16 Sept as “Malaysia Day” _ commemorating the establishment of the Malaysian federation in 1963 by joining the provinces of Malaya, Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak.

Although Anwar has made such claims several times in the past, Friday was the first time he has given a specific timeframe to try to pull down the government.

He was ousted from government in 1998 by then-Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in a power struggle amid accusations of corruption and sodomy. Anwar denied the charges, which he said were trumped up.

The sodomy charge was later overturned, but he served prison time after being convicted of corruption.

The corruption charge prevented him from holding public office until 14 Apr 2008, which meant he could not contest the 8 Mar general elections.

A record 82 opposition members from a three-party alliance led by Anwar were elected to the 222-member lower house in the elections. This shook the ruling National Front’s grip on governance for the first time in 40 years.

Anwar said last month that it won’t be long before he is elected a lawmaker in a by-election.

“We have enough numbers now. But we want the transition to be peaceful and democratic,” he said Friday.

He has said any government he forms will change Malaysia’s system of promoting majority ethnic Malays _ Anwar himself is Malay _ in government contracts, jobs and education over ethnic Chinese and Indian Malaysians.

“Many ruling party members of parliament know that the time for racial politics is over,” said Anwar, adding that he was confident that governing party members would defect to his side. (AP)

A Sabah & Sarawak MP defection was a ploy (Red herring) by DSAI to deflect from the real crossovers taking place. All attention and energy is on the East Malaysian MP’s and the UMNO MP’s in West Malaysia were free to meet up with DSAI’s gang and plan the defections. Poor East Malaysian MP’s , for once they thought they were the King Makers and now all know what they are up to. Just like beggars suddenly striking the jackpot but only a fool’s jackpot .DSAI will not form a federal government with these spineless MP’s.

REMEMBER DSAI and AAB body language when they meet in the opening day of the parliament (The photo on the front page of the newspapers)

More to come as I get more info on the progress report of the UMNO MP’s. Sept date was only a ploy and a red herring. All going to take place in next 2 weeks time. No need to sack the PM because AAB will defeat the non-confidence vote with the help of PR and AAB Group UMNO Mp’s who will defect to PR. There will be a cabinet reshuffle so after. UMNO Ministers who will be retained are as follows because they will be the defectors

Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz
Datuk Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi ( When DSAI was sacked , he was in DSAI’s house everyday )
Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim
Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamad
Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim
Datuk Shahrir Samad
Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek

and surprise

Datuk Azalina Othman

And no non-UMNO Ministers or Sabah UMNO Ministers will be retained but the vocal Sabah and Sarawak MP’s will be made ministers. Cabinet will be expanded to 30 Ministers, 38 Asst ministers and 30 parliamentary secretaries. Total will be 99 and balance MP’s will be given other important posts with good
salary. All will be happy and all will be taken care.

***
DSAI will not make a tactical move without the consent of DAP and PAS. All now are hunger for power after their appetite has been vetted by DSAI’s announcements that PR are now government in waiting.All politicans are the same and get corrupted with power. Look at Taiwan , South Korea ,Indonesia, Thailand , Philippines , Pakistan ,india , Israel and so on. They profess the perfect govermental principles when in opposition but what happen when they come in power. They only last for a term. Come fast and clean up the state coffers fast aftraid that they will not have another opturnity again. here else the former ruling party only rob the interest not the capital

Wow!! Go to source of this conversation in here:

Royal Commission inquiry report on Lingam Tape $541.60 only, only, only…

Ok, ok, ok.

Ok, Malaysians, in this time of difficulty in cari makan, the concerned citizens now have been gently refused access to acquire a copy of the Lingam Tape Royal Commission inquiry report. I think some people in the  government are a bit out of touch with reality of life – how can a normal everyday Malaysian comfortably fork out $541.60 for this book – even if citizens are very, very, very concerned? Somemore have to travel all the way to Legal Affairs Division in PM Dept in Putrajaya to get it. This means only rich, unemployed people can buy such expensive book.

Oi, Mr Zaid Ibrahim, I remember I lobbied for you for ministership (ahem, ahem in cyberworld…) cos I thought you are one having your two ears listening and two feet firmly on the ground in tune with citizens’ concerns.

Come on, make la the inquiry or sections of it available on the internet. If government can make RMK9 available on the internet free for download, make the same la for this inquiry. If government wants to recover some pocket money, can make CD for sale, maybe at RM10 – guarantee you this CD will be hotter than the pirated ones.

This inquiry has potential for far, far, far bigger implications for future of Malaysia. If you, Zaid can do something to make this work, you’ll have a place of honour in Malaysia’s history.

Trust this lobbyist, Mr Zaid.

P/S: Maybe an apology is due to Anwar Ibrahim if he suffered from any law gerrymandering in Lingam’s time…

Muhyiddin for UMNO President aka Malaysia Prime Minister? Pakatan Rakyat say something!!!

Woah!

Muhyiddin is really hinting out loud that he is willing and ready for a go for Presidency for UMNO.

Anybody else ready to throw the gauntlet and go for gold? Ooops, candidancy?

Can we have caucus in every state of Malaysia before the finale at the UMNO party election later this year?

Caucuses where the state UMNO delegates have chance to listen to the candidate’s dreams & fears & hopes?

Caucuses where the delegates will take away the messages for tearing to pieces at the local mamak or warong kopi?
I will be following this closely because I want a qualified PM this time around. At least, if the PM do get to meet Obama, our PM won’t get outshined unneccessarily by the new age leader.

P/S:

And I am very angry that the rest of the BN component parties and Pakatan Rakyat do nothing to demand for qualified candidates for UMNO Presidency. As Malaysians, we are stakeholders in the executive post of the country. Or have we relinquished our stakes in the country???

Say something, Anwar Ibrahim, Wan Azizah, Lim Kit Siang, Nik Aziz, please….

20,000 defy police to celebrate Anwar’s ban expiry

Aiya, I missed because got class…

About 20,000 people attended a rally in central Kuala Lumpur tonight to mark the expiry of Anwar Ibrahim ban from public office, a decade after he was sacked as deputy prime minister.

The crowd defied a ban on the event which was held in Kampung Baru despite scores of riot police were deployed in the futile attempt to stop the illegal gathering.

“We have not issued any permits for the gathering. I advise all the supporters not to attend it. The gathering is banned,” city police chief Muhammad Sabtu Osman told AFP earlier today.

At about 9.15pm, Anwar took the stage to tell his supporters to wait two weeks on whether he would be running for parliamentary seat and return to active politics.

Wow… read more at Malaysiakini here.

Say, what is the meaning of our votes at 12GE when frog MPs jump from one party to another party?

P/S: Some people went there because Raja Petra got wedding anniversary at same place.

Anwar to form new government? Please get Malaysians’ blessing…

Dear sir,

I read this in Malaysiakini.

Are you in a rush for the Prime Minister seat now or going to openly campaign for PM in the next General Election?

If now, appreciate please could you ask the PEOPLE of Malaysia for their blessing? It is important, because blessing (permission) can do wonders for a nation to heal any divisions, to move forward confidently and for families to live harmoniously.

An answer from Barisan Rakyat- DAP/ PKR/ PAS would be appreciated too, if Anwar is very busy. My two questions are:

Was GE12 about putting Anwar in the PM seat?

Were the people informed about this objective?

Thank you.

Any Malaysiakini readers voting in Lembah Pantai?

I wonder if any of these concerns from some voters of Lembah Pantai connect with any of you Malaysiakini readers out there?

Go here.

With great regret, it is NO to Nurul Izzah (Anwar Ibrahim)

I received a very big earful from my mom, pop, uncles and aunties when I ask whether they would consider voting for PKR. Recovery, I fear will be a slow job due to the severity of rebukes received. So much for my little foray into real life survey.

Here’s what they scolded me for:

  1. Nurul Izzah has got no track record connecting the dots between local authorities, NGOs, Resident Associations, etc to work the government system. Where’s the testimony of her achievements of such nature before she declared candidacy?
  2. Nurul Izzah has not guaranteed she will be able to handle and work the system to deliver for Lembah Pantai people.
  3. Nurul Izzah has not convinced them – she need to produce a list of do-able things she can deliver for people of Lembah Pantai if elected.
  4. They are not convinced that Nurul Izzah will not relinquish her seat for Anwar Ibrahim.
  5. If they throw their votes for Nurul Izzah, what will happen if she give seat to Anwar because Anwar has not promised any delivery that he will deliver in Lembah Pantai.
  6. Will Nurul Izzah be able to cope with the streneous job of MP for Lembah Pantai? Will she flip flop (eg: running, not running, running for MP) This is a complex, fast moving and very multi-cultural constituency and the businesses here moves fast.
  7. Does Nurul Izzah have a solid team to back her up? Has she set up one already to kick into action immediately if voted in?

And here are more serious questions from my uncle:

  1. Bangsar is jewel in the crown in Lembah Pantai. Some people however, called it Sin City and want to close it down. What is your stand on this?
  2. What will you do with the nightspots that bring in foreign exchange generated from economic activities catering to overseas expatriates?
  3. What do you say about Negara Islam? Will you support Negara Islam?
  4. What do you say about Islamist radicals & terrorists?
  5. What will you say to people who misuse jihad?
  6. What is your commitment to ensure Lembah Pantai will be safe and free from religious bigots or trouble makers?

NB: Due to the seriousnes of this subject to us people of Lembah Pantai, comments from non voters in Lembah Pantai shall not be entertained.

Worry about Nurul Izzah (Anwar Ibrahim?)

Share with you concerns from another voter from Lembah Pantai on reading Nurul Izzah’s interview in The Sun yesterday weekend edition. This uncle voter has sms his concerns to friends in Lembah Pantai.

In italics are Nurul Izzah’s statement from the interview and uncle voter’s response in bold.

Some points that really hit the wrong buttons for me this morning as I read the papers. My worries:

“I wouldn’t say that I lack experience. I have first hand experience. That is my advantage.” The experience of fighting for one cause does not equal being able to handle AND deliver the dynamic, contradicting needs of 200,000 people in Lembah Pantai.

“I am in the opposition. I can speak without fear or favour.” Only being able to speak so will not move anything for people in Lembah Pantai. They deserve somebody who will be able to get things moving, done and delivered.

“Shahrizat is in the government also means that she faces a heavier burden to prove to the people what she has done all this while.” If Nurul Izzah had been old enough, she would be able to tell how Shahrizat solved the inefficiencies for Lembah Pantai. To date, thousands of families that have moved out of squatters into proper flats, no more flooding, enjoy more job opportunities (and yes that includes all the PAS and PKR supporters) . If one were to say that Shahrizat has to PROVE anything in regards to what she has done all this while, it truly means that one has NOT done their homework and not travelled the entire of Lembah Pantai. The very LRT station Nurul Izzah stood at to shake hands with the people is a result of Shahrizat working well with many authorities. Don’t tell me Nurul Izzah didn’t realise that!

“What has Shahrizat been doing with all the allocations provided in the past 12 years?” Refer to the answer above. And go read the papers over the past 12 years.

“Why is it that people in certain parts of Lembah Pantai are still in a pathetic living condition?” Spoken like a truly naive young girl. You cannot take note of one area in Lembah Pantai and live in a bubble in regards to its situation. Look around and compare. Also those very people living in the ‘pathetic’ living condition are actually pending moving into flats.

“We do not need an MP with more money, but one with stronger political will.” Evident enough that PKR will not be able to give Lembah Pantai people what they need. Lembah Pantai people are not a tool for PKR’s one cause, but actual people with actual lives. Reality bites: Money is needed to provide the necessities of life. Not JUST political will. Perfect thing though, Shahrizat can give both!

NB: Can’t find this interview in Malaysiakini. I’ll let you know what my family members think of this later.

That’s not very nice, Anwar Ibrahim…

My heart is broken.

2 lovely female calon asking for my vote. Shahrizat the veteran lawmaker and Nurul Izzah the freshie idealist.

One would be forgiven for thinking that it be a woman vs woman political contest. No problem.

Until on nomination day… I saw Anwar Ibrahim outside the Bangsar Sports Complex. And then I heard Malaysiakini, radio, internet and newspapers telling me that my beloved Lembah Pantai is now the hottest seat this GE.

No…! No more plain woman vs woman fair contest. It’s now man against woman.

This is not fair, Anwar. It’s not fair to Nurul Izzah to put her through this. It’s also not fair to put Lembah Pantai voters in a spot, to take them away from well loved Shahrizat.

I’m not happy with this development. Not at all.
