Teoh Beng Hock 1st Anniversary

Memorial Service For Teoh Beng Hock

July 17 (Sat)

8am to 10am

Nirvana Memorial Park, Semenyih

All are welcome.

DAPSY Ceramah :First Anniversary Teoh Beng Hock's Passing

Friday, July 16, 2010

8:00pm - 9:30pm

Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall

All are welcome.

Does this young, happy and hardworking man thought of committing suicide out of the blue.

Teoh Beng Hock was found dead on the roof of a building next to MACC where he was interrogated through out the night by the MACC because of suspicion of corruption in the political party purchase of 2,000 ringgit worth of party flags. The government, police and MACC are denying of any foul play and putting in their best effort to declare that Teoh Beng Hock fell from the MACC building without wanting to pursue further on the why and how he fell. Was he pressured to near insanity during the investigation that might had cause him to jump, was he pushed out of the window or was he murdered.

Will it end like the Altantuya murder case whereby they are not willing to investigate for the motive or the man behind it even though the two men found guilty did not know who she was but were ordered to carried out the murder.

Najib, Umno/BN, A Reflection Of Who You All Are !

A very well written piece from The Star to help us understand the political game of "umno controlled bn". Of course the writer would not dare said it directly to the face of "umno controlled bn" leaders but had to use the oppositions as camouflage.

Just read the story and instead of PKR, Pakatan and the opposition leader names, replace them with umno leaders and "umno controlled bn" and you will see very clearly what the writer try to tell us about "umno controlled bn".

What the writer wrote are in italic and what I see in the reflection are in blue or red.

THIS is what we will hear from Parti Keadilan Nasional leaders about the leadership feud in Selangor as they downplay the issue: it is not as bad as portrayed and the press should be blamed for blowing up the matter.

THIS is what we will hear from Parti Barisan Nasional leaders about the leadership feud in Putra Jaya as they downplay the issue: it is not as bad as portrayed and the opposition should be blamed for blowing up the matter.

As much as PKR leaders like to project themselves as defenders of the people and the Barisan Nasional as a corrupt, incompetent and detached government, they cannot run away from the fact that politics is about power – or more precisely, the spoils of power.

As much as "umno controlled leaders" especially Najib, like to project themselves as defenders of the people and the Pakatan Rakyat as a corrupt, incompetent and detached government, they cannot run away from the fact that politics is about power – or more precisely, the spoils of power.

But the PKR, as the main component in the Pakatan, is also like any political party. Politi­cians may like to project themselves as saviours to the people, and some may even start believing in their own propaganda, but it is also about power and positions.

But the UMNO, as the main component in the Barisan, is also like any political party. Politi­cians may like to project themselves as saviours to the people, and some (especially Najib) may even start believing in their own propaganda, but it is also about power and positions.

The rest of the story is of course fill and spin with other irrelevant make up innuendos to make it look more of attacking the oppositions rather than the "umno controlled bn" lest he gets into trouble.

The Cabinet Is Just For Show And So Are The BN Component Parties

I usually address BN in all my postings as "Umno Controlled BN" and today the PM himself confirmed it. Many had rebutted me on my facebook, especially from gerakan and mca saying that bn had changed after the 308 tsunami, all BN component parties are equal and have equal say in everything.

Before we get on to the football betting licence issue, let us ask whether the PM had any discussion and seek approval from the cabinet before he agreed with his Singapore counterpart regarding the railway land deal and agreeing to a discount of 30% toll rates on the second link? From what we had read from the media, there is no mentioning that the cabinet had been informed or discussed and neither the cabinet had given any approval. What we know from the media is that the PM visited Singapore and the deal was sealed there and then.

Am I wrong to question this or maybe I was wrong, the PM has the power and authority to sign any deal with foreign countries just like his predecessor signing of the two oil blocks off the Sabah coast without seeking approval from the cabinet?

If this is so, is not our cabinet in existence just for show and BN component parties are irrelevant? The PM is also the President of umno and most likely he will seek the approval from umno supreme council just like the football betting licence issue.

This is what the PM said regarding the football betting licence withdrawal, retrived from The Malaysian Insider: The remarks in red are mine.

"After taking into account various views, we are of the opinion that the majority did not agree the decision to issue the license to Ascot Sports," he said after chairing the Umno supreme council meeting here.

"The government therefore decided that the license will not be issued," said the finance minister adding that Ascot Sports has been informed of the decision.

Did he hold any cabinet meeting to decide on the withdrawal? From his statement it is unlikely that he had any cabinet meeting before the umno supreme council meeting or else he would had announced the withdrawal after the cabinet meeting. So the decision was made during the umno supreme council meeting and not any prior cabinet meeting yet he claimed that the government decided not to issue the licence. What does this tell us? It meant that the government is umno and umno is the government!

He said the withdrawal was supported by members of the Umno supreme council.

This statement confirmed that umno is the government and not BN.

Najib said the government had earlier agreed to issue the sports betting licence but with strict condition such as banning Muslim involvement in the activity.

Was the cabinet being informed regarding this earlier agreement? So, did the PM lied all along regarding the sports betting licence?

He also hoped that Barisan Nasional (BN) component party members such as MCA and MIC who have supported legalised sports betting to accept the government's decision.

What can be more clearer to show that umno is the master and helm total control over its component parties. By hoping that its component parties accept the "government's" (or is it umno's) decision confirmed that mca, mic and other component parties were not consulted at all regarding this sports betting licencing issue.

Is Malaysia Crumbling Under Najib's "Umno Controlled BN" ?

Malaysia is not crumbling, but make believe to be so, by those who are afraid of losing power. We had heard before of people trying to overthrow the government with Molotov Cocktail whereby a few suspects were being detained under the ISA but released without any shred of evidence nor charged.

Today, we are being told that there are terrorists among us and yet again no evidence, just declaration. Why must the pdrm and the government make such an open declaration, should they not be quietly investigating and doing what they must do to nab all these so called terrorists. When you make a report about corruption to the macc you are advised not to talk about it, to the press or anyone so as to enable the macc to carry out their job successfully.

But here, we are talking about terrorists that can cause destruction to the country yet the government and pdrm are openly talking about it, are they trying to warn the terrorists so that they can make their escape or is it a political ploy to frighten the people into accepting that this government is the only government that can protect them from terrorism.

Or worst, are they targeting the ever growing strength of the Opposition that they must act now before they lose power by locking up its leaders and followers under the ISA by pinning on them some unproven terrorist misconduct and hoping to net a few more frogs along the way.

Malaysia is not crumbling but Najib's "Umno controlled bn" is. Najib had failed in every aspect as a leader since he took over as PM in April 2009. He knows that he had no control over his subordinates and they are running wild which is detrimental to his hold on power. His slogans and rhetoric seem not to be working, so, other then engaging all kinds of promotion to uplift his image, including his latest pussy play as advised by his foreign advisers, he needs to create some drastic move and that move is the "ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR".

Do You Still Trust The "Umno Controlled BN" To Run This Country?

In two days time it will be my 56th year born and live in this country, Malaysia. I am the fourth generation and till today I am still treated as a pendatang and second class citizen. I have seen premier after premier taking reign as leaders with such great promises for all of us but at the end of the day, it remain the not challenge our ketuanan melayu status. You are here just because we allow you to do so.

I had high hope and expected the latest premier to be different from his predecessors, but alas, just like the others he succumbed yet again to the demand of his own team and members. He simply cannot put his plan into action just because he is afraid to lose his premiership. So, he is playing with time, talking about his election date surprises, walk-about to meet the people, which in fact turns out that his security is more than the people he wanted to meet and lately, buying (not adopting) a pussy cat to play with.

He is leaving all important issues to his foreign advisers (who are just copycat from the west) and other nincompoop ministers to run the show, hence we see all kind of idiotic statements, poor management, wasteful image promotions and contradicting answers.

What the people needed most are not taken care off and not given any priority instead they will go all out to defend , fight tooth and nail or even lie to see that all their unnecessary pet projects got implemented and for what, your guess is as good as mine.

Never had they ever considered and respected the non muslim rights because of their ketuanan melayu status but they are only force to quote the term "non muslim rights" under circumstances that can only benefited them.

What I can say and ask of the people of Malaysia is that this country truly needed a real change in order for us to move forward together as proud Malaysians and not about ketuanan melayu, Chinese, Malay, Indian, Iban, Dayak, Kadazan, Orang Asli......

From my 56 years of experience with "umno controlled bn" I can safely claimed that we are going the wrong way to doom if we still allow "umno controlled bn" to rule with perpetuity.

Many will criticise me for challenging whatever the government is doing, it does not matter, go ahead. What I can only say is, because I had seen enough of their promises, slogans, rhetoric, corruptions, discrimination and their worst racist remarks to judge that umno will still be umno in whatever shape and form.

Obama Got A Dog, Najib A Pussy, He Wanted You To Give It A Name

The country is going bankrupt and this PM is playing with pussy. He is no longer in control of Putra Jaya and acts like he is still equals to Obama. Obama got a dog and he must follow with a pussy. Something is really, really wrong with this PM. My earlier posting A Whining PM Is A Useless Leader, said it all.

I am very worried for the pussy cat that he now owns. I am afraid that this cat will suffer under the care of a person who care not about human being. If human being can be allowed to be tortured, blown to pieces by c4, locked away under the ISA, death under you think he will take good care of this small defenseless cat?

Now he wanted the public to help him to name this poor cat. I think he should name his cat that can remind him to be more humane towards human being. Many suggestions had already been posted in various online blogs and media which I think are appropriate. He can choose from the list below but first a few very interesting comments from Malaysiakini readers:

Beetle Mr. PM,if there is nothing better for you to do than to ask the people to suggests name for your new pussy than something must be very wrong with you. Even choosing a name for your new pussy you do not have any idea how can we trust you to run our nation. OK,you poor soul maybe the name" Tuya" will suit your new pussy since you have disposed off the old pussy.

CPL Bought a kitty and looks like torturing the animal for photo op. He didnt get a cat at a shelter? Tak pakai. Sack the fler who told him to buy kitty. SPCA and animal shelters are overrun with cats and other animals. Maybe he should visit SPCA for a better image. Can Rosmah be the patron of the "killing animals" section of Bandaraya for a start? I am not sure whats its called. Maybe she can find homes for them in her house instesd.

Yum Najib is sure running out of ideas to get close to the people. Now he is stealing a page from the US President family's habit of adopting a dog while in office. Of course, dogs are anathema for a Muslim in Malaysia. Hence, a cat. Dang, he should have gotten a snake instead. Oh wait, he already has those in parliament already.

A Whining PM Is A Useless Leader

PM Najib is no different from his half past six ministers. Looking at the way his ministers handle and manage their portfolios make one wonders whether they are truly qualified for their jobs.

They simply perform their work according to what they think is right, with no concern or regard for the rakyat or the country. Blunders after blunders and flip flop after flip flop are just part and parcel in managing their portfolio. They can contradict each other on the same subject matter.

When they cannot find any solution for their mistakes or wrong announcements, then only will they push it to the rakyat. Just one sentence "WE NEED MORE FEEDBACK FROM THE PEOPLE" will absolved them of all their irresponsibility and wrong doing.

The PM had himself flip flop on many occasions, the first being the 1Malaysia slogan which emphasized on all to be Malaysian first but conceded later that the Malays must come first. All his talks and work on the NEM comes to zero when he was being challenged to retain the NEP. And the most famous of them all is the Sports Betting Licencing blunder.

When a leader cannot handle his subordinates and take control of things, he is a useless leader and a useless leader will start whining to cover his stupidity and uselessness.

Now see how he whines "General election is going to be a surprise, says Najib"

What kind of surprise can there be, whereby you have the power to call for the general election anytime between today till the 8th March 2013. You may want to separate the election dates for Federal and State, do it together with the Sarawak State election which is due next year plus a few other combination.

Unless you want to create havoc to impose emergency ruling or hold the GE on the 30th February, that will really surprise everyone. There can be no surprise for any general election unless you are planning something very dirty that are not in the play book.

Stop whining !

PM Najib, Your Wife Is A Nobody But Simply Just Your Wife - Period

Update: Just read this information at the following blog.
Sarah Brown is never to be referred to as this country’s “first lady”. Were we to have that term in English usage, it would refer to Her Majesty the Queen. Mrs Brown is merely the wife of the Prime Minister.

Simon Heffer
Associate Editor
The Daily Telegraph

» Memo to the journalists of the Telegraph on 23 August 2009, about how to refer to the wife of Gordon Brown, then British prime minister

A Prime Minister's wife is just like any other common people, just that she is married to a Prime Minister who is elected to serve the public, that is a public servant. She is not an elected representative hence she has no business whatsoever to be involved in running the country or the power to utilised the public funds.

If an employee's wife is called the "first lady", what should we call the wife of the employer? "First first lady"?

The wife of the PM is only entitled the courtesy by virtue of being his spouse and nothing more. She has no standing officially.

So, Mr. Prime Minister, order the closure of this "First Lady" issue by declaring that your wife is just your wife and nobody's "First Lady" but if you need to treat her as "First Lady", do so when you are back home and not during your working hours serving the public.

If You Are Not Angry...You Are Not Patriotic !


Going by the speed that our leaders keep telling us that we need to cut subsidies, implement the GST and needed the tax from legalized sport betting to keep the country afloat or we will go bankrupt by 2019.

On a different vein and different tune, we were told that we have a sound economy, we are not facing bankruptcy, we are ahead in FDI among other third world countries, our market are very vibrant, our ringgit is strong, the rakyat are happy, there are more jobs available than job seekers.

Which one of the above do we want to believe in? There is none to believe in but I can safely claimed that the Government is not telling us the truth.

We can just let these pass us by, without being angry as yet.

Now this one will make you very angry and if you are not, then, you are not patriotic.

"Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz admitted today that the government did not have the “capacity” to finance the studies of the growing pool of bright students in the country."

What the hell is wrong with this country. They have the capacity to finance a new 800 million Parliament building, spent billions on purchasing of defence hardware as if we are going to war, billions lost on the PKFZ scandal, billions bailout of failed crony projects, the latest being the new palace ballooning to 800 millions from the original 400 millions and the list of billions upon billions lost through corruptions and bailouts seem never ending.

And today, we are told, smack on our faces, that the Government could not afford to finance our bright children educations. They simply cannot tell us the truth of where our country's huge financial resources had gone to.

I am very angry, are you?

Lim Guan Eng & DAP In The Eyes Of The Malays

A heartfelt letter to Lim Guan Eng when he was in prison- written by a Malay and published in December 1998
Click image for larger view



Dear Guan Eng,

As you languish in prison, I have had plenty of time to reflect on you and your idealism.

Rightly or wrongly, the Democratic Action Party has long tried to have a ‘Malaysian’ character when the vast majority in the country still perceive it to be essentially a political party for the ethnic Chinese.

I realize that recently people like you have tried hard to attract Malaysians, especially Malays, to make the DAP truly Malaysian, but not too successfully, in my view. Then came an explosive event- the Rahim Thamby Chik case- which made a lot of Malays sit up and change their perceptions of the DAP. That case rocked Malay society to its very foundation.

Your conduct and role in pursuit of truth in that scandal earned my deepest admiration. The series of events following that scandal, culminating in the judicial proceedings against you, have turned out to be a classic example of how a verdict in a ‘court of law’ has become subordinate to the ‘ court of public opinion’.

Ask any Malay mother anywhere. Few would agree that the famous grandmother in that scandal should have been abandoned by UMNO, and the under-aged girl should have been so blatantly violated , abused and her family silenced and doesnot know her rights.

By your words and deeds, you challenged the government, police, media, and the judiciary, and exposed yourself to certain incarceration and vindictive punishment by Dr. Mahathir and the political elite.

I have always believed that God works in mysterious ways.

Inexplicably, He chose you to put the DAP into sharp focus. He chose you to force Malaysians to look at themselves and reflect on the abuse of basic values in our society.

To that extent, God in His wisdom made the DAP no longer just a Chinese political party, but, overnight, into a truly Malaysian one which fights for the deprived.

I am a Malay with a family of my own. I shall remember you as a Chinese father who fought for the rights of an ignorant poor Malay grand-mother and her sexually abused grand-daughter.

I know that when you decided to take on the case, you knew the price for your action would be heavy for you and your family, personally and politically.

Today, you are still paying the price. You languish alone in prison.

Ironically, as in Nelson Mandela’s case, the longer they lock you up,the greater will be your stature, the more powerful the focus on the issues you fought for.

I also know that, all through this, you can look into the eyes of your wife, children and parents,and say, with deserved pride and honour, that ‘Guan Eng has not prostituted his dignity, decency and self-respect in the face of oppression and tyranny’.

You have truly given new meaning to the maxim, ‘Politics With Honour’.

More importantly, you have made me look in the mirror and ask, ‘Who Am I? What have I done to speak out against the evil forces which confronted two Malay kampong women? Why have I remained silent? Have I lost my decency and self-respect?’

In all honesty, I cannot say I have the guts to look into the eyes of my family members and say I have done them proud. I have kept silent.

I owe it to you, Guan Eng, for opening my eyes and stirring my conscience.

Our inaction and apathy have allowed oppression, tyranny and injustice to continue. We have to search our hearts and souls to find ways to make up for our negligence and ineptitude.

To you, Guan Eng, I offer prayers from my family. May the blessings of the Almighty continue to give you strength, courage and tenacity to do what is right and just for all Malaysians.

Yours Sincerely,

Narmi Saila

Petaling Jaya,

MACC, What Happen To The "You Help Me I Help You" Investigation?

Why is MACC taking such a long time to investigate Najib's alleged bribery of vote buying during the Sibu by election? Excuse can be given for the complexity of the PKFZ scandal but for this "You help me I help you" by Najib with all evidence so easily available and yet MACC is dragging its feet to take action.

If MACC is so efficient and at par with Hong Kong ICAC as claimed, it should have completed investigation into the alleged bribery of vote buying by Najib within a week.

Sharing with you all this letter from The Bruno Manser Fund (BMF):

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear friends,

following our 8 June 2010 release on the Malaysian Prime Minister Najb Abdul Razak's involvement in vote-buying for a Sarawak timber tycoon, our attention has been drawn to a posting on Sarawak Report, a blog focussing on governance issues in the Malaysian state of Sarawak on Borneo. Under the title "Time to Prosecute", Sarawak Report comments on the Malaysian Prime Minister's infamous Sibu speech with the following words: "In any other country Najib's admissions would have made headline news and been followed by live TV pictures of him being bundled into a policed van and banged up in jail. These are very serious criminal offences that he has openly admitted to".

Sarawak Report refers to the fact that, in his Sibu speech, Najib did not only offer 5 million Malaysian Ringgit (US $ 1.5 million) of government funds in return for the population to vote for the son of a local timber tycoon but also openly admitted to have bought votes in an earlier by-election in Hulu Selangor, West Malaysia. The Hulu Selangor by-election was narrowly won by the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition. Its results are being contested by the opposition in a pending election petition.

According to a statement by Karpal Singh, the lawyer of the Malaysian opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, Najib's speech is a "very serious offence" under the Election Offences Act. The Malaysian Insider reported on 23 May that the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) had announced to investigate complaints that had been lodged against the Prime Minister. However, on 7 June Malaysiakini reported that the Dewan Rakyat, the lower house of the Malaysian Parliament, refused to discuss questions by an opposition MP why neither the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commision nor the Election Commission were investigating the case.

The Bruno Manser Fund believes that, given the strong evidence of his involvement in vote-buying, the Malaysian Prime Minister should indeed be prosecuted and asks the international community - governments, NGOs and the media - to give their full attention to the further development of this serious issue during the coming weeks.

If you read this message, please

a) forward it to government representatives in your country and ask your government to formally protest with the local Malaysian embassy against vote-buying in Malaysia.
b) forward it to the media in your country and ask them to take up this hitherto under reported - if not completely unreported - scandal.

Thank you very much.

Another Plan, The 10 Malaysia Plan (10MP)..Does It Really Help?

I woke up to read the news that the PM had presented his 10 Malaysia Plan (10MP) in Parliament. What! the 10th Malaysia Plan? So there are nine other MPs prior to Najib's 10MP and what happen to them. Can anyone show me how successfully they were implemented.

Yes, I agree we need to have planning but we need also to make sure and see through that our planning are successfully implemented. A country is just like a corporate company having to make proper planning in order to make money and become successful hence the employees can be well rewarded.

What the common rakyat know and understand about each Malaysia Plan proposal is for Malaysia to attain a democratic developed Country, high income, high standard of education, major player in the world market, low poverty rate, low corruption level, equality and meritocracy. To summarized it, the Malaysia Plan is to uplift the rakyat living standard without fear of ever having to be hungry, a roof over the head and have a little extra for a vacation or enjoy doing what one likes to do without any fear of money problem and lastly all Malaysians treated as equal and living in peace and harmony.

To me, so far all the plans had failed. We are still having racial issues, the poor gets poorer while the rich gets richer, low income group fighting against the spiralling market price increases of consumer goods, blatant discrimination in almost all fields that have to do with the ruling government, billions of ringgit lost through leakages and corruptions, cronyism, non transparency in government dealings, using the government apparatus to strike fear against the rakyat who are vocal and the MACC, PDRM, Judiciary had failed to perform their duties diligently without fear or favor.

All the previous nine MPs, not only had failed to perform and it's promises to deliver a good life for the rakyat but we are told that the country will be bankrupt by 2019.

We are going to hear and read from the media that many people including foreign dignitaries, the corporate world, NGOs, world leaders giving the thumbs up for Najib's 10MP. This kind of jubilation is no difference from the past nine MPS when they were announced.

Previous nine MPs had failed to deliver, pray tell me, what make the people believed that this 10MP will perform when all the same kind of sicknesses are still plaguing inside the whole government body?

10MP, I cannot understand what it is all about but I am very sure that another few billion ringgit will flow to someone else pockets, the MACC will claim no evidence, the PDRM receive no report while Najib can proudly claim "YOU HELP ME I HELP YOU". At the end of the 10MP, like all the other MPs, the rakyat will bear the cost of the lost billions and we will still remain as what we are today.

Bing, Bong, Bang, Bung Mok Cha Cha Rasputin

What kind of Government is Najib running. He cannot even discipline and control his own elected representatives from running wild and he has big plan for the country with his 10th Malaysia Plan. Not to mention his own party members and associate perkasa attacking councillors.

Najib is talking big about his billions in spending on his 10MP but my question to him is, can he actually manage and control it or will the rakyat be going to suffer when the country goes bankrupt earlier than Jala's warning by 2019.

I am very sure that Najib's approval rating will shoot sky high again when Merdeka Center releases its poll survey after the 10MP is announced. But before Najib start jumping with joy, what kind of action will he take against his MPs, party members and umno's associate perkasa barbaric acts.

This is how Najib's representative treated the common rakyat seeking help in Parliament:

“How can security allow these people to simply come into the Parliament?”, Bung demanded to know.

“Hormati Parlimen! Cakap first class Parlimen. Apa first class? Low class!…ini biadap punya kerja, orang takda pendidikan punya…”

Watch this video

Najib is not interested to fight corruptions as shown by his own action of "You help me I help you", you want the RM5 million then I want Lau to win, during his ceramah at the Sibu by election. He is setting a very bad example as a PM and when a leader cannot lead by example, what happen to his down line?

Najib must clean and put his own house in order first and that is;

Free the MACC, PDRM and the Judiciary, let them perform their work according to the law and constitution without any interference.

Control and discipline his elected representatives and all the institutions to respect the rakyat.

If he cannot stop the leakages of billions of ringgit, his incompetence MACC and Judiciary while letting loose PDRM, MPs, party members and associate perkasa to commit their babaric actions, how is he going to run the country?

Najib, you can fool somebody else but not me.

My Survey Poll: 95% Approval Rating For PM's Propaganda

The above is just a mock survey. Merdeka Center survey is more inclined towards a political purpose while its main sponsor is from umno. The way their questions were posed and through the phone can subject the results to many ambiguities.

The mock survey is just my thoughts that to get a real final rating more detailed questions about the PM should be conducted as well.

Never Ending Controversies, Cover-ups, Lies, Denial, In Malaysia

PutraJaya is looking like a cemetery. You can see so many holes being dug and each hole being refilled after one mishap by the authority that needs to be shielded from the public is buried.

There is totally no integrity left with the present Umno controlled ruling Government. Controversy after controversy, cover-ups after one another, lie and leading to more lies and finally denial to hoodwink the stupid rakyat, so they thought.

The leader, the most powerful man in this country, cannot walk and talk straight. Why want to create controversies when the situations warrant a straight and truthful answers. Why the need to protect and cover-up those who had done wrong while holding key positions in the Government.

There are one too many controversies, cover-ups, lies and denial in this present administration that people tend to forget the older ones and will soon forget the present one as well.

The latest controversy, lie and denial is about the Sports Betting License. There are so many different answers from the Government leaders as to whether the Sport Betting License had being given. We will just have to wait and see how this wayang kulit played out.

Some older controversies, cover-ups, lies and denial that many might have forgotten.

Correct, correct, correct! With solid and concrete proof, no one is hauled up or charged. You may find this grave among others in the picture above.

Two policemen convicted in Altantuya's murder but without any motives. No one, I repeat, NO ONE within the authority bothers to search nor investigate further for the motives. WHO ORDER THE KILLING?

Can we hope for the French investigation to shade some light, I guess not. When someone powerful can get the NYT (New York Times) to admit mistakes on the "First Lady of Malaysia" issue what one can think off is, they can also get to the French investigators to cover-up should any ugly findings are dug up.

The RM12.5 billion Port Klang Free Zone scandal.

What we can see is a few scapegoats being thrown to the wolves, expecting the gullible rakyat to believe that these few low ranking employees were capable of corruptions to the tune of billions.

What we are afraid most, the cover-ups are ongoing and happening now with the newly appointed Trans­port Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha saying there will be no more PKFZ probes.

Of course there are still many cover-ups, especially on corruptions. There are no big fish being hauled in by MACC to date and they are proud to announce the hundreds of ikan bilis that they had caught.

What about the many outstanding cases of death under detention or investigation. Some cases were closed while others are dragging through the long process in court.

Will the truth prevail regarding the suspicious death of Kunan and Teoh Beng Hock?

Was Aminul Rasyid really a criminal when the cops shot and killed him? Was he really posing a dangerous situation for the cops? Can we really get justice for Aminul Rasyid?

How the f**k does he know it is safe in PJ? Najib Visit To SS2 PJ

Why is Najib in the rush to declare that Malaysia is all honky dory, from the country's economy to the safety of the rakyat. Is he being sabotaged by his advisers or apco providing him with false information.

The PM is misleading the rakyat when most of his proclamations were rebutted, such as this 10.1 percent growth figure 'misleading' and not only who are in the know are contradicting the PM's claim but the public as well.

Below is a blog posting which I reproduced, with permission, responding to Najib's visit to SS2 PJ by The Independent Spirit. Please visit the blog to read further from reader's comments on whether Najib is speaking the truth.

In Malaysia, the politicians just seem to politicise everything. Someone wins a gold medal, they rush to give awards. Someone arrested in Vietnam for drugs, some youth wing will rush to 'save' the accused.

It is just sickening. Instead of focussing on administering the country, these politicians take the easy way out by just making sure they are seen to do things, things which really, don't necessarily improve the country.

Take Najib's visit to SS2 PJ on Wednesday. Our PM so confidently declare that people of SS2 feels safer. Is he talking cock, or is he just a plain idiot?

SS2 and for that matter, the entire PJ and Klang Valley is like the wild wild west of US. The robbers/thieves/rapists etc are roaming around so freely. People write on blogs, tweets etc on how they were robbed/mugged etc. Houses broken in broad day light. Cars stolen every day. Motorbikes stolen everyday.

And yet this PM 'declares' that the people in PJ feels safer. You can see this news in the Sun.

Why dont he let his daughter walk around SS2 without the hordes of police escort.

Why dont he come stay at one of the houses in PJ and see how many locks we put on our grill door.

Why don't he ask his wife to walk along the street in SS2 with her hand bag around her elbow, lets see how long before a snatch thief comes along.

And I read about lesser police reports made in PJ, as a statistic to support lesser crime.

Again, is our PM an idiot? People in PJ don't want to report to the police cause these police idiots don't do anything. We will always get the usual answers from the idiots at the police station:-

1. "Oh, ini kes sivil"

2. "Alamak, in salah balai lah"

3. "Sabar, kami tak cukup orang"

4. "Kami susah, sebab kamu rakyat tak nak tolong kami bagi informasi" (even though it is the police's job to gather intelligence, or else why the f**k we have a Special Branch for?)

So, please, please don't politicise the issue of security. We who live in PJ don't get to enjoy our life. We live with concerns. Concerns that tomorrow, one of our loved ones may be the next one hit by a criminal. Our life is like a russian roulette. You never know, we may be the next to get hit by the bullet (oh.. that bullet thing has a deja vu feel).

Really, I really cant wait to vote Najib and his entire Government out.

Enjoy The World Cup But Stay Clear From PM Najib's Encouragement On Sport Betting

Sport betting is a kind of gambling and everyone knows that gambling is morally wrong and it can lead to "death", family quarrel, family breakup, crime and fighting.

Yes, gambling is part and parcel of the Chinese culture, some may say, but many have also seen the destruction that it causes. Gambling can be compared to drug addict, whereby there can be no control over one's addiction.

It all started casually and out of curiosity, just like smoking and taking drugs. Small bets will eventually turn into bigger bets and with most cases greed will set in. Once you are addicted to gambling there is no stopping, you will have to find ways to find the money for your gambling habit. The first you go to is your family, than your friends, ah long and when these are all exhausted you will start to commit crime.

There is only two ways that can stop you from gambling and that is either you are dead or land yourself in jail.

PM Najib can give whatever excuses in legalizing spot betting, no one in the right mind will agree with him. Legalized spot betting to curb illegal gambling is no excuse, why not legalized prostitution to curb illegal prostitution and also it can control all kind of sex related diseases.

Legalized spot betting to help increased the government diminishing coffer is no excuse. Just because the government is going bankrupt, the people's well being are thrown aside, is this what Najib meant by his "1Malaysia, People First Performance Now"?.

Do not argue that legal gambling are already in existence in this country. By weighing the pros and cons of gambling, Najib should not encourage gambling by issuing more licenses, instead he should be looking for ways to reduce them.

So my fellow Malaysians, ENJOY WATCHING THE WORLD CUP but stay clear from PM Najib's Encouragement On Sport Betting. You will live a longer, better and healthier life without spot betting.

The "Brave Heart" Of Umno Youth, Khairy Jamaluddin (KJ)

This is to keep the record that Malaysia has a "Brave Heart" who will fight to the death in defense of a foreign land.

Many will by now had heard about the "Attack" by Israel on the Flotilla or the attackers being attacked first by members of the Flotilla. Malaysia stand was that it is an act of aggression by Israel. We will wait for the truth to be unveiled.

In the meantime demonstrations were carried out throughout the world and Malaysia was not left behind with thousands staging a peaceful walk to the US embassy to hand in a memorandum of protest.

The most outstanding of the day rally emerged from a small group of about 200 Umno protesters led by Umno youth chief, Khairy Jamaluddin (KJ). He is one "Brave Heart" and this is what he declared without getting any endorsement that other Malaysians are as brave as him.

Khairy said: “If another attack happens, we will rise. I am sure the people here will sacrifice our lives to fight for this. We will not only demonstrate, but we will also make sure that we go to Gaza to defeat the Israeli regime.”

Nationwide Express Courier Services Slower Than Snail Mail.

While thousands are now demonstrating against the Israel attack on the Flotilla in Kg. Baru I need to digress on the deteriorating services from the private sector.

I can still remember when I was young, we were encouraged to save, amount does not matter, 1 dollar or even fifty cents, to open a bank saving account. The banks at that time were very helpful, all the paper works that they had to endure without the help of the computer. Now most banks were taken over by certain warlords with the help of some powerful political leaders, what kind of services do we received. They are not encouraging the "small & poor" people to save money and whatever services they provide, its money talk. Transactions via the atm and online will see a range of charges from 1 ringgit to 5 ringgit and the half yearly charge of 10 ringgit to 20 ringgit for each atm card holder. I had written about their poor services years ago and today I am not talking about it anymore. You, as the consumer can judge for yourself when you need help from the bank.

Today, I am surprised at the way the courier services deliver your consignment. They are supposed to be fast and efficient but my latest encounter with Nationwide Express Courier Services can make one jumping mad.

There is a delivery to my house sent from KL and I have no idea what time they will deliver , so, I have to be at home waiting from 8am to 5pm, even skipping my lunch fearing that they will come.

This consignment was sent through Nationwide Express Courier Services from KL on the 28th May 2010. Since that day was wesak day, I expect it to be delayed a day, so I am expecting to receive it on 1st June. I waited, it did not arrive. I am sure that it will arrived on the 2nd but it did not and I am getting very worried as this consignment is an important document. I started to make calls but no one answer and I check their website for info and contacts but all the pages are not working.

Finally I manage to get hold of a phone number from the Perai office. I called and they gave me the Penang number to call which I did. The lady told me that the courier man will be at my place at 2.30pm, that is on the 2nd June. I waited, no one turns up and just before 5pm, I called several times and no one answer the phone.

On the 3rd, I called, still no one answer the phone. I contacted my friend in KL who sent me this consignment to check with Nationwide Express in KL. He checked and gave me another phone number to call. I called this new number and the lady told me that the courier man will be at my place by 3.30pm. I waited, no one turns up and I called the office again at 5pm. The lady told me she will checked and get back to me. She called me back at 5.40pm and pass me to the courier man. The courier man told me he went to the wrong place and he did not know the location of my house.

Well, well, if the courier service have no idea of the location, when GPS is so easily available, I think this courier service should close shop.

Anyway, the courier told me he will deliver my consignment the next day at around noon, and that is today and thank GOD he showed up and I finally received my consignment.

It took 7 days to deliver a consignment from KL to Penang by courier service.

Idris Jala: M’sia must cut subsidies, debt by 2019 or risk bankruptcy

An interesting read to share with you all, copy and paste from YB Lim Kit Siang's blog.

By Sara Wak

My Dear Ministers,

I think both of you must know what are the reasons why Malaysian economy has been on the fall for the last decade. Malaysia has a lot of oil and gas and the income was supposed to enable Malaysia survive for many years to come.

However, What PETRONAS has made since it was incorporated has evaporated into thin air, where the profits have been WRONGLY used by the Federal BN Government to support many failed business deals, such as The Bumiputra Finance scandal, the buy back of MAS shares from Tajuddin at RM8 a share when the market price was only RM3 a share, and many others such as Port Klang Free Zone, Parwaja Steel, etc etc.

There are just too many to name.

Perhaps you should read what Malaysians have been circulating among themselves on the article below in comparing Malaysia to Greece, which Dato Seri Idris Jala also used !

Bureaucracy – you are only too aware, otherwise you won;t be talking about KPIs. Bloated civil service – so many civil servants Corruption – need we say more on this when contracts are awarded without tender ?

Tax evasion – when Inland revenue does not do anything on transfer pricing !

No transparency in governance – Govt and ministers are not held accountable.

These sounds very familiar in Malaysia.

I would like to comment on some of your proposals, although I wish I can do so for all of them :

Text book loan scheme and tuition subsidy aid to be abolished

If you look at many developed countries, the government provide FREE text books for primary and secondary school children, and now you are talking about Text book loan scheme and tuition subsidy aid to be abolished!

Just look at the poor natives from Sarawak and Sabah for example, including the Kelabits and Penans in Sarawak, some parents do not even have money to book their children’s text books and uniforms !

If we are serious about Human assets for the future of Malaysia, we should try to encourage all children to be educated, especially those who are poor. In Malaysia, those who are poor are mainly those in the villages like in Sarawak and Sabah, especially the natives like Dayaks, Kelabaits, Penans, Malays, Kadazans, Muruts, Kenyahs, etc etc.

If the BN Government can allow RM billions to be wasted through corruption and bail-outs, how is it that they cannot afford to buy the books for primary and secondary schools, at least up to Form 3?

Malaysia’s fuel prices are among the cheapest in the world.

I am sure both of you are very intelligent people, otherwise how could you both have such high education and went up so high in positions to MD, and ministers?

When you say furl prices are cheap in Malaysia, what are you comparing them with?

Are you comparing apples with apples or apples with oranges?

Just look at the regular petrol fuel prices below:

Malaysia – RM1.80 per litre

Singapore – S$1.757 per litre

Australia – A$1.35 per litre

You should not convert the prices in Singapore and Australia from S$ and A$ to RM in order to compare them.

What you should compare is the per capital income of the population in each country.

In Malaysia, a fresh graduate can only earn RM1,500 a month, this is very good already, some in Sarawak can only earn RM1,000 or less a month.

In Singapore, a fresh graduate earns at least S$2,000 a month and in Australia, a fresh graduate earns at least A$3,000 a month. I know it as 2 of my children were offered engineering jobs in Malaysia for RM1,500 a month, they were also offered S$2,000 a month in Singapore and A$4,500 in Australia a month!

Look when you compare fuel prices, you need to look at the earnings and you cannot just simply convert the various prices into a single currency.

Why don’t you compare prices of cars in Malaysia with those in USA, Australia and NZ and UK?

I hope both of you have done some studies in economics and finance before you start doing all the analysis and comparison and make yourselves look stupid in comparing apples with pears!!

Foreign students will pay full fees at public universities

I wonder why this is brought up. Has the Malaysian Government not charging full fees for foreign students? If it is the case, why are public universities not offering Malaysian students to study in local universities at reduced prices and allow foreign students to study there?

In most developed countries like Australia and Singapore, they only offer some places to foreign students but at full price! I wonder what the BN Government has been thinking all along. Why not offer those university places to pour own Malaysians at those reduced rates instead of them spending more overseas?

I would like to hear your comments on the above points which I raised with you and look forward to your response.

Thank you.

PM Najib Connections With The Jews Via APCO & Washington

Umno always claim that Anwar is a friend of the Jews, a lie that they keep on telling the Malays. They have no proof whatsoever to tie Anwar having connections with the Jews.

What the Malays did not know or Umno would'nt want them to know is that their President whom by default is also the PM, has always supported Israel and the Jews through the engagement of APCO.

The way the PM bows to President Obama by agreeing on the Iran sanctions, slow or no reaction to the attacked on the Flotilla by Israel, getting himself close to Washington that are pro Israel, are enough proof that he is a friend of the Jews.

Below is the letter B’nai B’rith International wrote to get Anwar declared an enemy of the state, thus proving that Anwar is not what Umno said all this while but indeed PM Najib is a true friend of the Jews.

The Honorable John F. Kerry, Chairman

The Honorable Richard G. Lugar, Ranking Member

Committee on Foreign Relations

United States Senate

Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator Kerry and Senator Lugar:

On behalf of B’nai B’rith International’s more than 200,000 members and supporters, we write to express our deep concern about the flagrantly anti-Semitic pronouncements of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim.

Ibrahim, who spent several years living in Washington, D.C. cultivating a pro-Western image, has nonetheless used his position in the Malaysian parliament as a platform for spreading anti-Semitic propaganda. His frequent criticisms of the government of Prime Minister Najib Razak are infused with anti-Jewish and anti-Israel slanders, such as his April 30 assertion that Israeli spies are “directly involved in the running of the government.” On another occasion he alleged the presence of “Israeli intelligence personnel in the Police IT unit.”

Ibrahim also has said in parliament that the “Jewish-controlled” public relations firm hired by the Prime Minister was attempting to manipulate Malaysia to support U.S. policies. In the run-up to Malaysia’s 2008 elections, he said in an interview with IslamOnline, “I have evidence proving that the government is backing the Jewish lobby in the U.S. and some parties inside Israel.”

In light of the role that Ibrahim has played in the resurgence of anti-Semitic polemics in Malaysian politics, we ask that U.S. officials suspend their ties with Anwar Ibrahim. A purveyor of anti-Jewish hatred such as Ibrahim should not enjoy the measure of legitimacy that a positive relationship with the United States would confer upon him.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation. We look forward to remaining in communication with you about this matter in the near future.
