Zodiac astrologically, Najib Razak is both a Snake and a Lion, that makes him a Leonine Snake.
Intelligent and highly intuitive are two of the Snake's many fine qualities. He makes an amusing and romantic friend with a definite flirtatious streak. When challenged or criticised he can be a sore loser. The Snake is very lucky with money and is fond of the odd bet or two. He is quick-witted and enjoys reading, music and occasionally the paranormal side of life.
Forecast for 2010
The Snake likes to make slow and steady progress and the Year of the Tiger will find him swept along with unexpected developments – they need to adapt and keep up the pace. On the career front, the Snake will have quite a bit of competition and needs to stay ahead of the game in order to be in line for any promotions or career advancement opportunities. He needs to seek advice from those who can help and not appear too independent – working with colleagues will pay off handsomely during the year. Money management will be crucial during the Year of the Tiger and with careful planning, they should have little to worry about. Time spent with loved ones, either on a well-earned holiday or at home, will rejuvenate the Snake's spirit during a busy and intense year. February through April will favor work endeavors and promotion. July through December will offer many opportunies for single Snakes to meet a special romantic partner. Travel looks most likely during March and June through August, with fun and romance well starred. Snakes can be shy and loners, but the Year of the Tiger will ensure they have many happy social events to attend.
Interesting Snake Facts:
Zodiac Stone: Opal
Special Flower: Passionflower
Best Hours: 9-11 am
Horoscope Colors: Brown Gold, Green
THE LEONINE SNAKE
Confident and proud, the Leonine Snake hates to come in second place. They fuel on kudos from others, but will become a bit obnoxious if it goes to their heads.

Gong Xi Gong Xi! Wishing all a Happy Chinese New Year!
In view of the Lunar New Year we will explore and take a peep at what's up ahead in the year of the White Tiger, based on cycle analysis of Chinese astrology, the year of the Metal Tiger, popularly called the Golden Tiger and here we will refer to it as the White Tiger because the color white in Chinese elemental cycles of the five elements white is the colour of the metal element.
Students of the ancient sciences in the study of the Taoist "Celestial Forces" will relate the year of the White Tiger as a mirror or reflection of the heavens when a channel is open from the heavens and that happens in certain time vortex and one of the possible openings is the year of 2010, and that this time vortex brings high impact changes on earth and that such changes are a result of the constant interaction of the cosmic energy. There is only four possible time opening opportunity in one full cycle of 60 years and one such opportunity is now.
From a theological viewpoint it is believed that they are a result of the constant battles between good and evil as the White Tiger is one of the spiritual guardians of the four heavenly cardinals and here it refers to the four cardinal points of the heavens or the universe synonymous to the biblical four "Cardinal Angels" that rules over North, South, East and West of the celestial heavens.
In the ancient Taoist studies, the four heavenly cardinals are the most powerful cycle of great significance and have a direct interaction to the five elements of Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth and in combination with the binary sequences results in the approach to the study of the Celestial Forces.
The four cardinal forces are the Force of the South, the Red Phoenix, the Green Dragon of the East, the Black Serpent of the North and the White Tiger of the West. These are the four cardinal points of the heavens and not to be confused with the earthly polarity and directions.
We can draw similarity in relation to the Biblical Four Cardinal Angels of "Lucifer" as in the Black Serpent ruling over the North, "Michael" as in the White Tiger ruling over the West, "Gabriel" as in the Red Phoenix ruling over the South and "Raphael" as in the Green Dragon ruling over the East.
In the Biblical "Book of Revelation", Lucifer was thrown down to Earth together with the Serpents and his army of fallen angels in the War in Heaven. And thus the battle between good and evil goes on here on Earth.
The four cardinals are not unique to the ancient Taoist of China but are universal in many ancient cultures and religion. I have used the term "Force" but it can be translated accordingly to Spirits, Guardians, Angels and Archangels, Cherubim and even Gods, as your preference depending which viewpoint you take.
There is a common age old phrase used even today by the Chinese and you would have heard it sometimes and they are that "On the Left there is the Green Dragon and on the Right there is the White Tiger" (Chor Cheng Lung Yau Pak Fu) which is in reference to having the blessings of highly capable assistants.
The Taoist cardinal points are of the celestial points and starts at the South and to get a better picture just bring the South to be on top instead of North and you will have the Green Dragon which rules the East on the Left and the White Tiger which rules the West on your Right (That's the celestial East on Left and West on the Right). The Taoist celestial cardinal points are a mirror image of the heavens from earth.
The year of the White Tiger which is a time period on Earth also called the Earthly branches and its prevailing influence is not fixed and spreads or simulated into one year before and one year after as it is believe that this time gap openings opportunity can be found in within. This is an opening that's connects the different dimension. Read on and I will elaborate further as we flow along.
Against this backdrop, let us begin by looking at some key points like the astrological symbol for the country of Malaysia which gained its independence on the 31st August of 1957 which is the year of the Fire Rooster. Let's see what happens in a Rooster cycle as follows:
1957 - The year of the Fire Rooster where Malaysia obtained its independence (Merdeka) from the United Kingdom and Tunku Abdul Rahman (8 Feb 1903 (Water Rabbit) – 6 Dec 1990) was appointed the first Prime Minister.
1969 - the year of the Earth Rooster is an election year that resulted in the Racial Riot of May 13 that led to the resignation of Tunku and the appointment of Abdul Razak (11 Mar 1922 – 14 Jan 1976 (Wood Rabbit) as the 2nd Prime Minister in 22nd September of 1970.
- 1969 on the 12 July Mahathir Mohamad was sack from UMNO.
1981 - The year of the Metal Rooster saw the appointment of Mahathir Mohamad (born July 10, 1925 – Wood Ox) as the 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia.
1993 - The year of the Water Rooster is when Anwar Ibrahim (born 10 Aug 1947 of the Fire Boar) took office as the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia.
2005 - The year of the Wood Rooster witnessed the demise of the Endon Mahmood Ambak the wife of the Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.(born 26 Nov 1939 – Earth Rabbit).
2017 – The year of the Fire Rooster what will Malaysia be than? Another Merdeka?
The Rooster Cycle
The major events and the personality featured in this cycle of the Rooster had a significant impact on the nation including the demise of the most likeable Endon, wife of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, where his inner circle of friends had state that with Endon's passing he lost her guidance and lost his focus and direction resulting in the election fallout of 2008.
You will find a lot of Rabbit's influence in the cycle of the Rooster and which is a natural occurrence in the Taoist's astrological sciences as the Rabbit is in opposition to the Rooster and what is commonly called a direct clash. This will be presented as we go.
We see Mahathir in the Rooster cycle and he is in tune with the elements here from 1981 onwards in the Rooster as Mahathir is born in the year of the Wood Ox which is in affinity with the Rooster both in terms of astrology and the elements except for the Water element of 1969 which is in opposition to his elements and that was the year he was sack from UMNO. He is the most powerful Prime Minister the country ever saw however there is an element of destruction in relation to the country as he draws his power from the elements the country's energy will be depleted. In short he used all the cosmic energy drawn from the country towards his own gain and which is an occurrence caused by the greed for power but luckily he resign. By the way the Wood Ox is the most stubborn of all the signs and as I remember he was aptly called a "recalcitrant". We shall see how he ends up as I believe he is kept alive for a reason.
Anwar Ibrahim is also prominently featured in the cycle of the nation here, Anwar is born in the year of the Fire Pig and his controlling element is of Yin Metal and there is a balance of the elements in this year of the Water Rooster. We shall cover more of Anwar in the Tiger cycle and don't you miss this analysis here written.
The Tiger Cycle
This an exciting cycle and especially and prominently featured in this cycle is Anwar Ibrahim who is born the Fire Boar and in this year of the Metal Tiger which is in complete affinity with Anwar Ibrahim as the Tiger's best friend is the Boar and the elements are also in his favor but there is still yet a hint of conflict as to his controlling element of the yin Metal against the yang Metal of the Tiger and Anwar being a Yin Metal polarity is where the masses can rise to meet him as Metal produces Water in the production cycle and Water here can represents the masses.
This is also a time of life changing impact for Anwar as he will undergo changes for the better and a time of realization in accordance with the layout of the elements and hopefully the wiser as one of the weaknesses of the yin metal is indecision and of confusion but the yin metal is a natural with the masses and the spotlight will always be on him but he has to keep it in check as there are times when the spotlight must be transferred to those that share his aspiration and talent.
Anwar uniquely hog the Western astrological sector of the Chinese astrological chart and this is the year where he can draw upon the cosmic forces or energy to his advantage as remember this is the year of the White Tiger who rules the celestial West and the sector of the Archangel Michael who put down Lucifer (Satan). And the time vortex opening may work towards his advantage if he is of pure faith of Truth he might gain the assistance of Michael the White Tiger (This also reflected in the old Quran text of the named archangel and an interesting read will be the "Surah al-Sajdah 32:11" and in old Buddhist text of the four heavenly Kings and the four Vedas of Hinduism and an interesting read as recommended by B.Ben (B stands for Bachelor) of the Wharf will be of the Hindu Navaratri where good triumph over evil).
Let's now look at the Tiger cycle and we will begin with the years after Independence of 1957 are as follows:
1962 of the Water Tiger – Anwar Ibrahim was only 15 years old and became a Tai Koh in the Cherok Tok Kun village of Penang protecting the village boys against being bullied in school (Heh, heh this was told to me by someone and I did not verify the story).
1962 - Indonesia announced its policy of Confrontation against the Federation of Malaysia.
1974 of the Wood Tiger – Petronas was first given exclusive rights to the nation's hydrocarbon reserve and before this all the oil was pump by foreign companies.
1974 – Saw the first election under the Barisan National umbrella after the May 13 of 1969.
1974 – Anwar Ibrahim was first arrested and detained for 22 months under the Internal Security Act for leading a student protest.
1986 of the Fire Tiger bodes well for the progress of Anwar where he was appointed Minister of Education and talk was rife than that he is destined to be the next Prime Minister as than all previous Prime Minister held this prestigious port-folio of the Education Ministry.
1998 of the Earth Tiger – was a year of extremes for Anwar Ibrahim, he was named Asian Man of the Year by Newsweek magazine.
1998 – Than the Asian Financial Crisis hit Malaysia and Anwar was in opposition to Mahathir against Capital control however Mahathir nevertheless imposed capital control and start bailing out all his cronies and of course his children's empire using much of PETRONAS money.
1998 – Mahathir than sack his deputy on 2 Sept and Anwar was detained and charge for eating Soto Mee and Corruption.
1998 – This year also saw the completion of the multi billion PETRONAS Twin Tower but this was overshadowed by the financial crisis and the charges against Anwar Ibrahim.
2010 the year of the Metal Tiger and what now for Anwar Ibrahim in this year of his elements with the year of the Fire Boar at his side, all indicate in tandem with the cosmic. The elements indicates and if past experiences are used as measurement when he was first detained in 1998, tens of thousands took to the street and if this time the pattern continues, you could multiply by at least a factor of 10 for those who will rise up for him this time around in accordance to the elements in place this year.
So Anwar, behold, stand forth and accept thy destiny, go forward only if your heart is of true faith (and it is not only about religious faith here) and receive the assistance of the archangel Michael but remember your faith could yet again be tested and perseverance of belief would be prerequisite from you. If your faith is true and pure than your efforts, endeavors and sacrifices will not be in vain and the country will gain a saint. Oops! Think I miss out that this also the year of purity and courage where you could easily flush out the evils and the unfaithful (faith here is not restricted to religion alone) from amongst your ranks, so take courage, be bold and go forth as there will be no blame. Those that wavered will in time return to the true cause and you are to accept all that is to come and this is in the written message.

What is this?
Sakai also can be liberal?
"Doesn't it sound like a Barbarian saying "Hey, we are reasonable people, we love fair and square competition!" or perhaps an old school UMNOPutra says "I'd honest with you, I have not taken a single sen that is not legit!"
Perkasa calls for 'guided liberalisation'
PUTRAJAYA, Feb 17 — Liberalisation under the country's New Economic Model, should be guided, says the President of Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa), Datuk Ibrahim Ali.
Speaking to reporters after handing over a memorandum to the Chairman of National Economic Advisory Council, Tan Sri Amirsham A.Aziz, here today, on the New Economic Model, he said the interests of those who had yet to achieve success under the New Economic Policy should continue to be taken care.
Ibrahim said it was important for the council not to be greatly influenced by calls from various parties including the "Malay Liberals" for the complete eradication of subsidies from the government.
Questioning several views that the NEP was a failure, he said that throughout its period of implementation, the country's average growth had been at six per cent. — Bernama

All these while, I have always thought he is associated with PAS.
Looks like he isn't after all ... See his enthusiastic reporting on the UMNO's recent Carnival and the mentioning of some of his UMNOPutrqa buddies?
Read his blog entries HERE
He got me good but you know what, that's totally understandable.

The Privilege source sms reads,"5 SPDP YBs to join PRS..Comment..??" audie61 got on the phone with the crew we interviewed and asks around and these are some of the comments from SPDP members and others who wished to stay anonymous:-
Todays Borneo posts has also Najib saying that PPP will not have any impact on State BN equation. He went on to say that PPP that the Sarawak based component parties will be the major dominant force.However he said that the Sarawak parties have any grouses they could bring it to the Barisan National Supreme council.
When we were browsing through Lim Kit Siangs blog in which it was posted Gerakan has lost Penang for good an interview with Lim Keng Yeik with the Edge Financial Daily and this is what we picked up and feel that it is significant ,"Gerakan is a multiracial party and the conscience of BN.Will (Tan Sri Abdul) Taib Mahmud stay? He has good control but will it split when he's not there anymore? That will depend on who provides the leadership for the Ibans. Are they a satisfied lot? I don't know.'
What makes the 5 legislators know what the BIG DEAL is because they have to gauge it carefully or else in the next elections their place will be taken up by some new faces .
IT IS INDEED A BIG DEAL AND ALL AVENUES NEEDS TO BE EXPLOITED AS THERE IS NO SECOND CHANCE IN POLITICS…

When I read about the 3 Malay Muslim women who got caught for committing zina and confessed to the major sin getting caned secretly in the Kajang Prison as stated by Dato Seri Hishamudin Tun Hussein Onn, I at once felt disgust at this lack of courage by our government!
Who do you fear more?
Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala or the sniping Islamophobic Kaffirs and MINO's apologists? M.I.N.O's here stand for Muslims In Name Only.
Kaffirs because they do not believe in Allah! Qul Ya Aiyyuhal Kaffirun as in Surah Al Kaffirun!
This is not something that Mahaguru58 dreamed up!
Sūra CIX: Kāfirūn, or Those who reject Faith.
1. Qul ya ayyuha alkafiroona

2. La aAAbudu ma taAAbudoona

Back to my topic here.
If we are truly an Islamic Nation perse, why the hell are we beating around the bush as far as the implementation of the Syariah Code is concerned?
Who gave you the authority to change Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala's Syariah Code and water it down to the mockery of the Syariah Penal Code that we have being flaunted as the Rule of Islam here in this so called 'Mamluk al Malaisie'?
The punishment for adulterers in Islam is not 4 strokes of the cane for the women fornicators in secrecy behind prison walls or 6 strokes of the rotan for their male counterparts in secrecy either!
Click here to learn about the true punishments as stipulated in our Islamic teachings!
Don't tell me that you know better than Allahu Ta'ala in administering the laws over such a major sin!!!
When the government tries to play play with the Laws of Allahu Ta'ala, the result is that the enemies of Islam both from within the fold and out of the ummah have a field day mocking the said religious authorities of Islamic Affairs of this nation.
You are all no better than the wimp of a Singaporean henpecked sorry excuse for a man as shown in the video above!
The shoe smacking and scrotum pinching woman in the video has more gonads than the whole lot of you ruining the good name of our faith here!
And that's the whole truth of the matter no matter what cock and bull excuses you are ging to come up with this 'Ah Kua' caning carried out behind the prison walls!
We should have the sentences carried out in public according to the Syariah stipulations and not as what the sorry excuse of a Syariah system we now have thanks to the spineless fellas we have in 'power' today!
The Muslim Autonomous Authority of Acheh in Indonesia have proven that they have the integrity to carry out the Hudud Laws in public.
Do we have the guts to do the same here in Dataran Merdeka? Not in a thousand years, I think if we have the same chaps in authority in Malaysia?
I seriously doubt that even PAS will dare to uphold the Hudud as we all once thought that they were clamoring for as part of their party's manifesto in upholding the Syariah of Allahu Ta'ala?
Today, its just ' Apa Saja Lah!' Sigh.....
Meanwhile here's a media statement from the Muslim Lawyers Association of Malaysia emailed to me by its president, my friend Hj Zainul Rijal Abu Bakar.
KENYATAAN MEDIA PERSATUAN PEGUAM-PEGUAM MUSLIM MALAYSIA (PPMM)
MENJAWAB NGO DAN GOLONGAN YANG MASIH KELIRU
Saya merujuk kepada kenyataan-kenyataan akhbar yang dikeluarkan oleh beberapa pihak seperti Sisters in Islam, AWAM, Majlis Peguam dan beberapa pihak lain yang mempertikaikan pelaksanaan sebatan syariah ke atas tiga orang pesalah syariah wanita baru-baru ini. PPMM hairan kenapa masih ada golongan yang tidak memahami dwi sistem perundangan yang diamalkan di Malaysia. Malah bantahan ini menggambarkan seolah-olah apa sahaja yang dibuat oleh pihak bekuasa berkaitan agama Islam ada sahaja yang tidak kena.
Perlulah ditegaskan sekali lagi di sini bahawa sebatan syariah jauh berbeza dari sebatan sivil. Sebatan syariah tidak mencederakan mahupun melukakan pesalah berbanding dengan sebatan sivil yang meninggalkan parut dan kesan dalam jangka masa dua tahun. Sebatan syariah adalah umpama bapa atau guru yang merotan anak yang telah melakukan kesilapan.
Telah banyak rencana, makalah dan kajian dibuat tentang pelaksanaan hukuman sebat dalam Islam ini diadakan. Malah pelbagai bengkel, seminar dan forum juga digarap ke arah memberi pemafahaman tentang hukuman ini. Tidak ketinggalan juga beberapa demonstrasi sebatan syariah telahpun dibuat namun inisiatif ini langsung tidak diambilkira oleh golongan yang menentang sebatan syariah ini secara membuta tuli.
Dalam perjuangan SIS mendapatkan hak samarata kenapa pula wanita tidak boleh disebat secara syariah sama seperti lelaki? Logiknya, jika semuanya ingin disamaratakan, hukumanpun hendaklah disamaratakan dan tidak mendiskriminasi golongan lelaki. Adakah kesamarataan yang diperjuangkan oleh SIS ini ialah samarata sekiranya memberi manfaat kepada wanita sahaja?
Menggambarkan sebatan syariah adalah zalim dan kejam adalah amat keterlaluan dan tidak mempunyai asas perundangan dan Hukum Syarak. Malah saya percaya pegawai SIS sendiri tidak pernah menyaksikan pelaksanaan sebatan syariah yang dilabelkan sebagai kejam dan zalim itu.
Dalam masa yang sama PPMM bersetuju sebatan sivil itu adalah kejam dan perlu dihapuskan. Sebatan sivil itu juga tidak Islamik. Sebatan yang mencedera dan mengerikan itulah yang patut dihapuskan kerana melanggar hak asasi manusia. Namun sebatan syariah mempunyai falsafahnya yang tersendiri dan berakar umbi dari sumber hukum Islam yang utama seperti Al Quran dan Al Sunnah. Mempertikaikan efektif atau tidaknya hukuman sebatan Islam ini samalah seperti mempertikaikan hikmah dan mukjizat Al Quran dan Rasul Allah saw.
Sebatan yang melanggar hak asasi manusia ialah sebatan sivil bukan sebatan syariah. Malah Resolusi Majlis Peguam yang diluluskan beberapa tahun lepas juga memberi penekanan aspek kekejaman sebatan sivil. Ini adalah kerana sebatan syariah tidaklah sekejam yang digambarkan itu. PPMM percaya ahli-ahli PPMM di dalam Bar Malaysia tidak bersetuju sebatan syariah dihapuskan kerana ia adalah sebahagian dari ajaran agama Islam yang mana Perlembagaan Persekutuan memberi kuasa kepada Dewan Undangan Negeri dan Parlimen bagi Wilayah-Wilayah Persekutuan mengadakan hukuman bagi sebarang kesalahan melanggar perintah agama.
Seksyen 289 Akta Kanun Jenayah yang dirujuk oleh En Ragunath adalah tidak terpakai di mahkamah syariah. Undang-undang yang terpakai di mahkamah syariah bagi pelaksanaan sebatan syariah ialah Akta Tatacara Jenayah Mahkamah Syariah. Oleh yang demikian Presiden Majlis Peguam itu perlulah merujuk kepada Akta tersebut terlebih dahulu (yang juga diluluskan oleh Parlimen) sebelum membuat sebarang komentar. Malaysia adalah sebuah negara unik yang mempunyai dua sistem perundangan dan kedua-dua sistem ini haruslah lengkap melengkapi antara satu sama lain serta menghormati pihak yang satu lagi.
Malaysia adalah sebuah negara yang berdaulat. Adalah menjadi peraturan asas (trite law) bahawa rujukan kepada konvensyen-konvensyen antarabangsa bukanlah nas yang sahih di sudut perundangan negara selagi ia tidak dijadikan undang-undang.
Saya juga menyeru mana-mana hukuman sebatan syariah yang masih lagi belum dilaksanakan sebatan syariah di seluruh negara termasuklah kes Kartika Sari Dewi Sukharnor dilaksanakan dengan kadar segera agar keadilan kepada pesalah syariah itu sendiri dapat dilakukan. PPMM menyokong usaha kerajaan memartabatkan perundangan syariah melalui sebatan syariah bagi pesalah yang telah disabitkan atas kesalahan yang membawa hukuman sebat.

Sadly, that's all that our Muslim Lawyers can do?
Memorandum after memorandum sent to the apathetic so called Umara' that we have masquerading as the Keepers of the Islamic Faith here in Bolehland.
Useless, incompetent cowards like the Singapore eunuch we see in the video above!
Even the notorious Sisters in Islam have more 'balls' in speaking their mind and championing their agenda than the lame ducks we have as the 'Government' in Malaysia.
I might not agree with them in many things but they have my respect for their tenacity in persistently fighting their many causes even if we so differ in our individual perspectives as fellow Muslims.
Any other secret punishments you have going on?
Just a slight tap on the risk for other offenders?

In the wake of Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy trial postponement today, questions are popping up whether star witness Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan is ready to be grilled by the defence team.
PKR strategist and Batu MP Tian Chua (left) questioned the motive of today's postponement as lead counsel Karpal Singh was all geared up to cross-examine Saiful.
"My view is that if Saiful is cross-examined now, there will be a lot of inconsistencies and it will be problematic for the prosecution," he said.
He added that if the defence won the appeal against the judge's decision not to recuse himself and the judge is changed, then the defence team will have another chance to cross-examine Saiful.
Tian, whose full name is Chua Tian Chang, said perhaps the prosecution fears that his story might be inconsistent.
"Hence, he needs more time to be coached. That is why I see they were not interested in continuing with today's proceedings," he said.
The hearing had been adjourned to March 25, following Anwar's intended application to appeal trial judge Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah's decision not to recuse himself today.
Previously, Anwar's applications for a stay of the proceedings following various interlocutory appeals at the Court of Appeal or Federal Court were not entertained by justice Mohamad Zabidin.
There was no indication by Karpal then that he had instructions from Anwar to appeal.

Since their open dispute with their party president, the five elected representatives from Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) seemed to have burnt their bridges with the party and the boss.
The Malaysian Mirror can reveal today that the group of SPDP legislators, led by its former secretary-general and state Assistant Minister Sylvester Enteri, will be jumping ship. Their next stop – Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) led by state Land Development Minister Dr James Masing.
Others in the group are Tasik Biru state assemblyman and Assistant Minister for Environment Peter Nansian, Batu Danau state rep Paulus Gumbang, Bekenu state assemblywoman Rosey Yunus and Mas Gading MP Dr Tiki Lafe.
The three SPDP supreme council members aligned to the "Unhappy 5" are George Garai, Peter Gani and Eda Egar.
Last month they walked out from the SPDP supreme council meeting when president William Mawan announced the appointment of Nelson Balang Rining, the state rep for Ba'Kelalan, as secretary-general replacing Enteri.
Fallout with Mawan
Enteri and the other leaders who were also founding fathers of the seven-year old SPDP were deeply disappointed with the president's decision. They charged that Mawan did not honour his promise of maintaining status quo in the party's elections last December.
Although Mawan tried to pacify the group by appointing Enteri as a party vice-president, the olive branch came too late. They had already decided to burn their bridges.
A leader of the group who declined to be identified told the Malaysian Mirror that members of the group met yesterday afternoon. And their final decision was to join PRS. They would be submitting their resignation letters from SPDP to the party any time now.
He believed that more elected representatives from SPDP are expected to cross over to PRS for the "larger interest of Dayak unity."
He said that the group will be meeting PRS president James Masing soon to submit their applications to join his party.
Asked to confirm the news, Enteri asked this reporter: "How do you know?".
However, he was quick to add that they were very disappointed with the way the party (SPDP) affairs had been handled by the president.
He said that they had lost confidence in the leadership of the party.
Their joining PRS which is expected to enlarge the growing support for the party that has now nine state assemblymen and six MPs is expected to be announced within the next 48 hours to coincide with the visit of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak from Feb 22-23 to Sarawak.
Keeping them within the BN
Political observers see the latest political development in Dayak politics as completing a whole circle – breaking from SNAP in the early 80s into Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak, SPDP and now in PRS.
Contacted by the Malaysian Mirror from Kuala Lumpur, James Masing said he had not met the SPDP dissidents so far nor discussed with them about joining PRS.
"What I know is that they do have some problems within their own party but I don't know how serious it is," he said.
Asked whether he would be happy to accept them into his party, Masing told MM: "Let's put it this way. It's better to keep them within the Barisan Nasional fold than to lose them to the opposition".

Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy II sequel has all the trappings of a selective political prosecution. The case involves a sequence of allegations made by his political aide Mohd Saiful which is riddled with some form of hidden and invisible plot which has to be brought out into the open.
No doubt any prosecution would involve some form of a story or a play. There is bound to be some form of human conflict which would run contrary to the law of the land. Hence after a report is made and the investigations are carried out and if there is prima facie evidence the Attorney General (AG) would prefer the charge or charges.
In Anwar's sodomy II the charge is under section 377B of the Penal Code which reads:
"That you on June 26, 2008…….intentionally had carnal intercourse against the order of nature with Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan where you inserted your penis into his anus, and therefore you had committed a crime which can be punishable under section 377B of the Penal Code."
Now every sane and right thinking person should first and foremost take note that the operative words of the charge are "WHERE YOU INSERTED YOUR PENIS INTO HIS ANUS" and in a criminal case the duty of the prosecution is to prove beyond reasonable doubt in establishing the charge that Anwar did in fact "insert his penis" into the anus.
We are all very familiar that when a report is made in a case of sexual assault or rape, the first thing the police would do is to send the victim to a government hospital to be examined and if it is established by medical evidence that there was indeed a case of sexual assault or penetration, then the aggressor is apprehended and after investigations are carried out, the AG may decide to prefer charges. If it was consensual no charges are preferred.
However in Anwar's case Saiful claims he was sodomised on June 26, 2008 but he consented to it. He did not pass motion for two days. He went to see Najib and informed him of what happened. He was advised to go to a hospital which he did. He went to two private hospitals before he was referred to a government hospital at which point he lodged the police report.
Anuar had applied to quash the charges on the grounds that it was mala fides, oppressive, and an abuse of the process of the court as it is a conspiracy and is malicious on the basis that a medical report has suggested that there was no penetration.
The High Court Judge dismissed the application. Anwar appealed to the Court of appeal and it is beyond our comprehension as to how the Appeal Court could deliver a unanimous decision on the reasoning that they concur with the submission of the lead prosecutor that the medical report was not conclusive evidence.
So what has happened to the "BEST EVIDENCE RULE" in Malaysia? Is this rule of evidence dead as with the rule of democracy?
But the lead prosecutor has submitted that he will not rely on the medical report (the best evidence) but the case would be based on the testimonies of witnesses (who would that be when it was only Anwar and Saiful if at all it actually happened) including forensic (manufactured) evidence.
So herein is the answer. The best evidence rule goes out of the window. In its place will be introduced MANUFACTURED EVIDENCE to establish the charge even thought there was no penetration.
Let's go a little further. Anwar filed an application to disqualify the High Court Judge from continuing to hear his case on grounds of the allegation of bias and lying over his failure to take appropriate action against the Utusan Malaysia's coverage of the trial The news paper is owned by the United Malay National Organisation (UMNO).
The judge miserably failed in the Oath and Affirmation that he took when he accepted his appointment of office. The Oath states that: "I will faithfully discharge my judicial duties in that office to the best of my ability, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to Malaysia, and will preserve, protect and defend its Constitution."
In the context of the Oath the judge had taken to defend the "Constitution" and since Anwar is claiming that he is being deprived of his "personal liberty" the Judge should have stepped down and let the application to disqualify him be heard by another judge.
This he failed to do. He totally ignored all the well established judicial precedence on the rule of bias. He decided to become the judge, jury and the executioner of the application made to disqualify him. It is apparent that he lost sight of the wisdom and the integrity of his office. He committed a grievous mistake by hearing and disposing of the application by himself.
The conclusions that he drew defeats commonsense and was totally illogical for a person who has been appointed to that high office when he said, "The allegations that I lied in arriving to the decision ( not to take action against Utusan) is incorrect. After looking at the testimony by the witness, and the affidavit of the application, there is no truth to such allegation. I am certain that any right rational people would not see the decision as biasness on my part." (reported by Malaysiakini)
Why is it so?
There are a few factors that have to be considered. There is a time honoured legal Maxim that states: " No one should be a Judge in his own cause."
Apart from the time honoured Maxin the judge had as a person to determine an issue which is made against him would naturally be prejudiced and being only human would never be able to arrive at a decision with certainty that would be acceptable to the applicant when all the right thinking people conclude that he is biased.
Further the judge failed to realize that the human consciousness is unique as it is a matter of perception and in this case it would be all the more unique as the application was against the judge to disqualify him from continuing to hear the case.
And that is why in (490-420 B. C.) Protagoras saw the full implications of what we are discussing today that took place in Anwar's case. It led Protagoras to ask these questions.
"If other people believe in different things to you, how do you know that your beliefs are right? How do you know that anyone's beliefs are right?
Therefore, with the facts that are before all right thinking people not only in Malaysia but also from all over the world, we are certain that in applying inductive logic to the prevailing facts we will reach the same conclusion that the prosecution of Anwar is politically motivated.
Najib, it is high time that you stop pretending that you can continue living in a diabolically conceived comfort zone. The whole world cannot be wrong and you are right.
May we leave you to ponder on a Latin Legal Maxim: "Nemo ex alterius facto praegravari debet" which means, No one ought to be burdened in consequence of another's act.

The Malaysian Insider...
3 women were caned recently under Syariah laws on charges of engaging in "illicit sex.
Home Minister Hishammuddin disclosed this yesterday. Two of them received six strokes while another one was given four.
"The sentencing has proven that caning is not unjust, inhumane or causes injuries. This also proves that Jakim and the Prisons Department are prepared and ready to implement Syariah criminal punishment. The public and world community no longer needs to fear caning as a punishment under the Syariah because it is not cruel but instead educates the offenders. It also provides awareness and teaches the offenders to repent and not repeat the acts," he said in a press statement today.
Wah! This fler is really something la. "caning is not unjust, inhumane or causes injuries..."
Unjust? Were the partners in this "illicit sex" caned too?
Inhumane? What? Chopping off hands for stealing next?
Causes injuries? How would he know?
"The public and world community no longer needs to fear caning as a punishment under the Syariah because it is not cruel but instead educates the offenders..."
Not cruel and educates as well! Now you can't ask for more can you?
This is also funny...
Give Najib chance to change country
Sarawakians were told this by Environment and Public Health Minister Datuk Sri Wong Soon Koh.
Okay Mr. Wong. Sure. I will. Just as soon as he can put his own party in order and not make conflicting statements from his deputy or should that be the other way around? Not that the Deputy fler gives a shit.
A chance to change the country? From what I've seen so far I am not sure Najib can change his own underwear. Sorry.

Blog Anwar Ibrahim melaporkan bekas Timbalan Menteri Buruh, Kalakau Untol sudah pun melepaskan semua jawatan dalam syarikat berkaitan kerajaan dan menyuarakan sokongan terhadap Pakatan Rakyat.
Tidak ada apa yang menghairankan mengenai keputusan beliau meletakkan jawatan sebagai Pengerusi Superpanel (Sabah) Sdn Bhd, sebuah subsidiari milik penuh Lembaga Pembangunan Perumahan Bandar (LPPB) serta sebagai ahli Lembaga Pengarah Perbadanan Pembangunan Ekonomi Sabah (Sedco).
Ini dinyatakannya dalam satu sidang akhbar di Tamparuli, Sabah hari ini.
Ketika menjadi anggota Kabinet Tun Dr Mahathir di antara 1986 dan 1990, beliau tidak berapa menyerlah. Malah, perlantikannya sebagai salah seorang wakil negeri Sabah sedikit membingungkan kerana Kalakau bukanlah seorang ahli politik gred 1. Sepenggal sebagai timbalan menteri pun tidak menampakkan beliau menyumbang apa-apa terhadap pembangunan tenaga kerja dan penyelesaian masalah perburuhan ketika itu.
Kalangan wartawan dan politikus ketika itu hanya melihat Kalakau sebagai seorang 'seniman' berprofil tinggi kerana kasutnya yang adakalanya berlainan warna setiap sebelah.
Saya sendiri pernah mengajukan soalan mengenai isu pekerja dan jawapan yang diberikannya sering tidak memuaskan hati wartawan sehingga ada yang menggelarnya ahli politik tangkap muat negeri Sabah.
Sama ada beliau akan menyertai PR atau tidak, itu haknya sebagai individu tetapi tidak ada apa yang dapat ditawarkannya kepada rakyat Sabah memandangkan beliau sendiri sudah terlalu lama 'tenggelam' di negeri itu.
Kalakau, 55, juga pernah menjadi Ketua Pemuda Pertubuhan Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Bersatu (Upko) negeri selama 12 tahun sejak 1985. Bagaimanapun, kekalahannya pada pemilihan pucuk kepimpinan pada 1997 seakan-akan menutup terus pintu gelanggang politiknya.
Blognya, kalakau.blogspot.com banyak berkisar kepada usahanya membela nasib rakyat Sabah ketika menjadi timbalan menteri, bagaimana beliau kecewa dengan segala tuntutannya untuk Sabah tidak dipenuhi semuanya oleh Kerajaan Persekutuan ketika itu.
Saya harap Tun Dr Mahathir dapat mengulas mengenai Kalakau agar rakyat Malaysia, khususnya di Sabah faham kenapa perlantikannya ketika itu hanya satu penggal.
Biarlah Kalakau dengan kelakarnya...

On 10 February Malaysiakini published my letter titled Rulers in politics a dangerous thing.
While my subject was on the inadvisability of royal activism in politics, I also mentioned that there were two monumental blunders in recent Malaysian political strategies. I had then written:
The first was when Dr Mahathir Mohamad, then as prime minister, wanted to outflank PAS' growing influence among the pious in the Malay heartland. He did so by declaring Malaysia as an Islamic nation, diametrically opposite to Tunku Abdul Rahman's earlier declaration that Malaysia was a secular state which upheld Islam as the nation's official religion.
Whatever good motive he might have in his manoeuvre to politically pre-empt PAS, he introduced a new element into the Malaysian judicial system, one that was and still is unwelcomed by non-Muslims.
Yes, as I had written, … By taking such a constitutionally radical step to neutralise PAS, he opened, what non-Muslims would call, a Pandora's Box, one which he couldn't close back again. From thence, he gradually gave in to the genie he unwittingly released.
We cannot accept the usual argument that only Muslims would be affected because Madam Kaliammal, wife of the late Moorthy (he of the body snatching case) was deeply affected and severely traumatised - and so were other non-Muslims in similar predicament.
Since then there has been an erosion of the supremacy of civil laws.
Four years ago I wrote in a previous post SUHAKAM Chairman: "Civil Court Judges Lack Balls" that Abu Talib Othman, the chairman of SUHAKAM and former Attorney-General in Dr Mahathir's government, the very man who had drafted the contentious Article 121 (1)(A) in 1988, severely criticized the timidity of the civil courts in interpreting the constitutional rights [and limitations] of the syariah courts in the Moorthy case.
Abu Talib blamed the civil courts for lacking the balls to interpret the provisions according to the intentions of the proponents [of the Constitution].
When human rights lawyer Malik Imtiaz told him about civil court judges who admit to being Muslims first, Abu Talib advised him to report the matter and if there was evidence, those judges should be removed.
He said: "They are unfit to be judges, then. Judges should remember their constitutional oath to protect and uphold the Federal Constitution as the supreme law of the land."
Yesterday we read that Three women [were] caned for extramarital sex in accordance with the sentences passed down by the syariah courts.
There was also the case of Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno who was also sentenced to six strokes of the cane for drinking beer.
It's not for me to question the decisions of the syariah courts … UNLESS … these had been against the civil laws.
Malaysian civil laws do not permit women to be caned. Additionally, in accordance with the civil law, a person cannot be caned by the prison authorities unless that person is a prisoner.
Kartika wasn't a prisoner, yet it has been reported that prison authorities had averred they were waiting for instructions from the syariah court to conduct the caning on her ... and presumably to f* with the civil laws of the nation.
So how, Minister? Haven't civil laws been violated?
The greater shame of the Home Minister has been that he allowed the illegal sentencing to be carried out secretly, yes, secretly as if he had been ashamed of the very actions of his own ministry.
Hishamuddin had the gall to say [as reported by MKINI]: "The punishment is to teach and give a chance to those who have fallen off the path to return and build a better life in future," ..... adding that none of the three sustained any injuries.
To recap, the secret caning of the women had been illegal in accordance with Malaysian civil laws.
Hishamuddin was too afraid or embarrassed to be upfront with those punishments. I bet if he could distance himself from ownership of the decision to proceed with the punishment he would have done so.
But alas, civil laws as we used to know it have become a victim of political opportunism and a faint heart.
And shouldn't we apply Abu Talib's admonition of those civil court judges to Hishamuddin as well, as in:

This Loyar Burok chap is even more kurang ajar. Dare to say our Home Minister a.k.a ISA God has no power?
Too kurang ajar ... Please ISA him right away ... MUST!
You don't have that power, Home Minister!
17 February, 2010By Richard Wee
An opinion on why the High Court was correct in its application of the law in respect of the 'Allah' issue and the Court of Appeal should affirm that decision.
The 'Allah' decision back in middle January by the High Court of Malaya may include the subject matter of the word 'Allah' but the legal substance and principle matter in issue in that case is the extent of the Home Minister's power to curtail the usage of a certain word.
I do not wish to bore the readers with a legal cross reference of this case and that statute, but safe to say, the High Court Judge in that case had to decide if a Home Minister can ban the word, like 'Allah', from being used by non-muslims. This is significant! For, if the High Court confirms that the Home Minister has such a power, then the next question to ask is 'To what extent?'.
It is simple logic. If a Home Minister can ban usage of that word, can it also mean that the Home Minister can also ban words like 'Tuhan', 'Geraja', 'Masjid' etc. Is it also possible that if the Home Minister is a big football fan, and happen to support a team like, say Everton; can he ban that name from being used by any other fan? And to add into that ban that any usage of that word by a non-fan will be dealt with by the law?
The High Court has, in my view, correctly decided the issue, and held that the Minister does not have such a power. A perusal of the Federal Constitution and the relevant Federal statutes, clearly demonstrates that the law does not accord such a power to the Home Minister.
To cut a long argument short – the Home Minister does not have the power to ban such words of any words, for that matter.
The Home Minister now informs us Malaysians, that the Ministry intends to appeal to the Court of Appeal. What he is appealing against is not about the usage of that word "Allah" but whether the Ministry has such a power.
Will the Court of Appeal rise and defend the law? Will they be influenced by top Judge(s) who were formerly member(s) of the ruling party, now sitting in the Palace of Justice? Will the Court of Appeal be cowered into doing so after the judiciary's website was hacked into and defaced with a threat to reverse the High Court decision?
I believe, if the Judges at the Court of Appeal, do what they are suppose to do, that is to apply the law then they should dismiss the Appeal.
I am aware that I will receive brickbats for being critical of the Judiciary at Putrajaya, but I am only a wee tax-paying Malaysian, wanting our Courts to defend the law; hoping that the law will not be skewed.
So long as practise my freedom to speak responsibly, I believe I have a right to gently remind our Judges at the Court of Appeal (and Federal Court if the case may be) to just apply the law, and nothing else but the law.

No contests are expected for the top posts at the 12th convention of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Sarawak's biggest political party and backbone of the state BN, from Feb 27 to March 2 in Kuching.
PBB deputy president Abang Johari Openg, who is minister of housing and urban development, said today he did not expect any contest for the two posts of deputy president, two posts of senior vice-president and six posts of vice-president.
"However, there may be some changes in the supreme council line-up," he told reporters during a visit to the residence of his assistant minister Soon Choon Teck in Sibu in conjunction with the Chinese New Year.
There have been calls from the PBB branches for Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud to continue to helm the party.
About 5,000 delegates and observers from the party's 71 branches state-wide are expected to converge at the Borneo Convention Centre in Kuching for the convention.
Abang Johari said Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak was scheduled to open the convention.

"Pada 2 September 2004, saya bertemu dengan salah seorang peguam Anwar, Pawanchik Merican di Istana Kehakiman di Putrajaya. "Awak tahu tak yang Ezam dan Anuar Shaari sedang galak mengutip derma atas nama Kempen Bebaskan Anwar (Free Anwar Campaign)?" Pawanchik menyoal saya."
NOTA EDITOR: Berikut adalah pendedahan dari Raja Petra Kamaruddin bahwa Ezam Mat Nor dan Annuar Shaari telah meminta wang dari George Soros sebelum pilihanraya 2004. Jumlah yang mereka dapat adalah dalam RM20juta tetapi wang tersebut tidak pernah dilihat dan diterima oleh Keadilan mahupun Anwar Ibrahim. Khabarnya, wang tersebut tersekat di Hong Kong dan tidak pernah ditemui lagi.
Saya teringat sekitar tahun 2003 saya minum the tarik dengan salah seorang MP PKR sekarang ini. Saya bertanya pada beliau, mana Ezam dapat duit beli rumah banglo di kawasan paling mahal di Shah Alam? Beliau lantas mengamuk dan mempersoalkan berkenaan bagaimana anak Mustafa Ali boleh dapat banyak kontrak dengan Kerajaan Negeri Terengganu. Saya kata, saya tak tau pasal tu, tapi yang pasal Ezam ni saya tahu dan wajib kita ambik tindakan. Last-last tengok sapa yang betul? Alhamdulillah.
Saya juga teringat Lokman Nor Adam difitnah dan dimaki Ezam secara terbuka sebab Lokman mintak kenaikan elaun dari Ezam Mat Nor sebab dia tak mampu buat kerja sebagai SU Pemuda Keadilan Pusat. Pada saya masa tu, macam mana Lokman tahu Ezam ada duit banyak? Kalau Ezam pun sengkek kenapa nak mintak duit kat Ezam?
Saya yakin antara yang dibincangkan dengan Aziz Samsudin di sebuah hotel di Shah Alam adalah kebenaran untuk membawa wang yang sebegitu banyak dari Hong Kong ke Malaysia. Maka, selepas itu, mereka berpakat konon bergaduh sesama mereka. Dan apabila mereka ditendang dan keluar parti, mereka bebas berbelanja wang yang sangat banyak itu.
Bagi UMNO, mereka akan menyokong 100% kerana ini bermakna PKR tidak akan mendapat wang tersebut yang mampu menjatuhkan UMNO.
Dan Lokman antara orang yang mula-mula mendedahkan wujud usaha meminta wang dari George Soros oleh puak2 dalam KeAdilan. Sekarang ni, kedua2 ekor kerbau ni dah duduk dalam UMNO dan berkempen lawan kita. Nampak tak taktik mereka mengkaburi mata kita.
Bagi saya, tindakan Lokman maki Ezam dan Ezam maki Lokman sebelum 2004 adalah SANDIWARA sahaja. Tujuan utama adalah untuk membawa perhatian orang dari topik yang sebenar: bagaimana hendak menjadikan RM20juta tu harta mak bapak mereka. Tengok la Lokman sekarang ni, kaya raya, bawa kereta mewah. Mana si Lokman dapat duit dengan begitu mudah. Semua puak2 yang ikut Ezam keluar UMNO tu, lihat gaya dan cara hidup mereka sekarang.
Ia banyak menjawab persoalan-persoalan yang selama ini kekal di benak saya. Rupa-rupanya kita semua ditipu oleh Ezam, Lokman, Zahid Mat Arip, Roslan Kassim dsbnya. Mereka konon bergaduh sama sendiri tapi di belakang mereka sesah duit Rm20 juta ni sesama mereka.
Lagi satu kena ingat, tu baru dari George Soros. Bagaimana pula duit dari sumber lain? Raja Petra kata lagi mereka jual nama <i>Free Anwar Campaign</i>. Mereka round satu dunia mintak duit. Ertinya, busuk-busuk pun saya yakin RM80-RM100juta tu senang-senang je.
Jadi, untuk memastikan duit-duit tu tidak dipersoalkan, mereka pun berlakon lah kononnya mereka bergaduh. Last2 semua masuk UMNO. Di Permatang Pauh, Lokman dengan Ezam boleh duduk atas pentas yang sama. Annuar Shaari boleh bukak bisnes sendiri hidup senang lenang. Semua hidup senang makan duit derma orang yang nak tengok Anwar lepas.
Lagi satu pengajaran dari peristiwa Ezam and the Gang, kalau pimpinan tu tiba2 je boleh hidup kaye, takda kerja boleh tukar Mercedez, takda bisness boleh duduk rumah juta-juta, ertinya ADA YANG TAK KENA. Jangan sekali-sekali kita BERSANGKA BAIK. Islam mengajar umatnya bersangka baik. Tapi Islam juga mengajar umatnya supaya JANGAN JADI BODOH. Malahan, lebih penting umat Islam tidak jadi bodoh dari bersangka baik.
Nabi SAW tak pernah bersikap bodoh. Nabi SAW sentiada bersikap bijaksana dan takda sapa boleh tipu Nabi SAW.
Kat dalam PAS sekarang ni pun kita kena tengok-tengok benda ni. BAru memerintah tak sampai setahun dah tukar Mercedez. Lepas tu tayang kat orang. Itu ke ajaran NAbi SAW? SAidina Umar jadi papa sebab pegang jawatan Khalifah. Sampai anak bini dia kelaparan. Pimpinan2 PAS boleh tukar kereta baru, kereta mewah, rumah banglo harga juta2.
Ini bukan WALA', ini BODOH namanya. Islam TIDAK PERNAH AJAR UMATNYA JADI BODOH.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Dear fellow citizens of Malaysia,
Here is the first part of a series of videos that I managed to shoot of the Anti 50 Australian Gay Supporting MP's protest yesterday at Jalan Yap Kwan Seng.
It's a very long video! Took ages to process and upload. Practically overnight!
There are still a couple of exclusive videos coming your way.
Expect to see my one to one interviews of :
Hope it's worth it! :)
Blogging for the truth to be upheld is a venture of self sacrifice for the main principle of sharing news and views without expecting any gains or profits!
Not that I wouldn't want to make some income by selling my material to the media companies but I feel that there's still loads that I need to learn and sharpen my multimedia skills before I reach that stage. :P
I would like to thank my missus for her understanding and patience. I am so glad that she's mine. Jazakallah khairan kathiraw my darling.
May Allah bless you!
Ameen. Ya Rabbal Alameen.
