You've *got* to be kidding me.
Only BN could possibly say "I've nominated my son to take care of 2 billion dollars" and "separation of power" in the same sentence.
RM 2 billion of ill gotten gains – and to take care of it all, he nominates… his son.
Nope. Nothing nepotistic there at all. Definitely very professional. Certainly wouldn't raise any eyebrows in any other country or anything.
Maybe Ong Tee Keat wasn't the greatest leader in the world, but at least he spent his time trying to expose corruption and fix what's really wrong with this country.
Soi Lek? Busy making sure his finger is in every pot (heh), and making a big show of begging Umno for money.
Integrity seems to follow dignity out the window :P

By the Administrator
The MPPP Councillors met YB Chow Kuan Yeow, the Penang Ex-co Member in charge of Local Government and conducted a heart-to heart talk with one another.
After realising the administration's strength and weakness, efforts will be made to improve further on the performance of the Penang Island Municipal Council.
The OSC or One Stop Center for approval of housing development plans seems to have weaknesses awaiting resolution. Everyone was positive to overcome them with new inputs and suggestions.
The humble but steadfast Chow(above), the man who steers the two local governments in Penang and who is always ready to listen to views of all shades before making a final decision.

I used the phrase 'turn the other cheek' above, and in my last letter used the term 'Good Samaritan'. See the pattern?
The opinion piece that I respond to:
Posted: 25 May 2010 07:37 AM PDT
The DAP organized a dinner to commemorate its 44th anniversary last Friday, 21st May, 2010. It was reported at least 1000 people attended. Among the guests was Tan Sri Robert Phang, corruption consultative and advisory panel member of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC)
I was alerted by a blogger that Tan Sri Robert also donated RM50,000 towards the DAP dinner. That was not all, apparently the DAP was condemning MACC in front of him and I was told Tan Sri Robert did not even say anything to defend the organisation in which he is still a panel member.
It was reported by a blog site Unspinners that two DAP members of parliament condemned MACC for being pro Barisan Nasional (BN) in front of Tan Sri Robert and yet he did not make an attempt to rebut the condemnation.
My question is: Why did he attended the dinner and why was he appointed as member of the MACC's panel? Can somebody please enlighten me! Read more here...!

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin menyifatkan kenyataan anak Presiden MIC, Vell Paari menuduh UMNO menggunakan pembunuhan politik untuk memecah-belahkan parti komponen Barisan Nasional (BN), sebagai biadap dan tidak bertanggungjawab.
Timbalan Pengerusi BN itu menegaskan, BN dan parti-parti komponennya terutama UMNO tidak terlibat sama sekali dalam sebarang usaha yang menimbulkan masalah dalam MIC.
"Saya hendak menafikan sekeras-kerasnya tuduhan itu kerana kita, lebih-lebih UMNO tidak pernah terlibat dalam perkara seperti itu.
"Ini adalah (tuduhan) tidak adil, biadap," katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan masjli ramah mesra warga pendidik dan guru-guru Muar di Kompleks Sukan Pagoh di sini hari ini -

Once I saw a video clip showing Americk Singh, the lawyer for Balasubramaniam of the double Statutory Declarations fame or if you like, notoriety. This was during the early days of Bala's Stat Decs.
Americk Singh assured everyone listening that he was completely 'neutral' in the 'Najib f* Altantuyaa' Stat Dec, and was only acting as the lawyer for Bala.
Then next, in November 2009, I read of his accusation in Malaysiakini Balasubramaniam's lawyer linked Najib to Bala's disappearance - wow!
Four days later Malaysiakini posted Bala's SD - Americk Sidhu clears Anwar Ibrahim from involvement.
Mr Singh stated: "… Anwar had nothing to do with the release of the first SD except to deliver a speech prior to the press conference at the PKR headquarters last July. I have had no communication with Anwar at all, and neither has he or any PKR member tried to contact me."
I then wrote that I was greatly comforted by Americk's assertion.
But what had puzzled me a tad, just a wee tad mind you, was that despite having no communication with Anwar or any PKR member, Americk was able to further assert that "… Many people think Anwar Ibrahim is behind all this. That is absolutely untrue. Anwar has no idea about this whole episode except what he may have read in the blogs and on Malaysiakini."
Well, WTF did/do we non-lawyers know anyway!
Now, Mr 'Neutral' has arranged for a cost-free trip for MACC to fly to London to meet Bala. How kind of Mr Americk Singh! For more, see Malaysiakini MACC gets all-expense paid London date with Bala
Just in case you can't remember who Mr Americk Singh Sidhu is, read my post Saiful sodomized? Bala sodomized!.
I had then written (extracts): He [Bala] was advised by his lawyer to report to the police station, as summoned, but unaccompanied by his own lawyer.
Indeed, where was his lawyer? Why didn't he accompany Bala to the police station?
Yes, this was the guy who allowed his client Balasubramaniam, immediately after making the most damning Stat Dec in Malaysian public history against the powerful DPM of Malaysia, to report to a police station ALONE when every Malaysian knows that the most dangerous place in Malaysia was/has been/is the police station.

Recently the Australian government in an unusual move expelled an Israeli diplomat for the Israeli secret service forging Australian passports to use in the murder of a Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Mabouh in a Dubai hotel room.
I stated 'unusual' because Australia is even more supportive of Israel than the USA. One of the principal reasons for the strong support stems from the powerful Jewish lobby in Australia where, like their counterparts in the USA, they donate generously to both Labour Party and the Coalition (Liberal Party and the National Party).
Some years ago when Julia Irwin, a Labour Party backbencher raised an issue in Parliament supporting the Palestinians, Simon Cream the Labour leader (then opposition leader) rushed down swiftly to Melbourne to apologize (or reassure) the Jewish community that a Labour government would continue to support Israel.
So a Labour govement expelling an Israeli diplomat has to be considered a most monumental political step in Australian politics and international diplomacy.
But on the other hand, in recent times many countries like Australia and European nations have found that the conduct of the Israeli government has deteriorated to totally unpalatable, unacceptable and indeed heinous levels. The Israelis have become no different from the Nazis who massacred their forefathers in Europe during WWII.
Then the Nazis ghetto-rised Jews in European; now the Israelis ghetto-rise Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
Then the Nazis imposed punitive group punishment on Jews; now the Israelis do likewise to Palestinians.
The the Nazis murdered Jewish children; now the Israelis massacre Palestinian babies.
But so powerful is the Israeli lobby in Australia that the federal Deputy Opposition Leader Julia Bishop has become so unbelievably stupid as to defend Israel by ..… [guess what?] … yes, by condemning her own country Australia as equally guilty of forging passports of other nations.
Now consider this - the Australian Opposition is not like the Malaysian one where the ruling party ignores them altogether. In Australia, the Opposition is treated respectfully as the alternative government in waiting and accorded same entitlements and almost similar privileges (short of ruling the country).
So for an Australian deputy opposition leader to condemn her own country so as to defend a foreign nation, it truly boggles the mind.
And for what … yes, for a wicked evil Deutronomic Israel!
Julia Bishop should resign her seat and hang her head in shame. But her gross stupidity bespeaks the staggering power and influence of the Jewish-Israei lobby here in Australia, and also in the USA and throughout the European nations.

Call him a nationalist, a chauvinist or anything. What this former Cabinet minister and Umno veteran wrote here demands us to reconsider our political atmosphere, our unity and of course, our 1Malaysia. Datuk Najib, Muhyiddin, Soi Lek, Samy Vellu, Kit Siang, Anwar and others should read this piece - about next general elections, the future of the Malays and Malaysians and how national unity will be at stake if we take things for granted.
He reminds us about the possible status confrontation we might possibly face during the next PRU, the attitude of the Malaysian Chinese towards the government and how Umno leaders are facing conflict of detente in wooing back the support of the Malays, including its members.
"...Seorang bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri telah menjanjikan Islam sebagai wadah perjuangan sebelum beliau menjadi Menteri sehingga beliau begitu popular dan dipilih menjadi pemimpin di peringkat atasan. Apabila beliau memegang jawatan sebagai Menteri Kewangan beliau menjanjikan pula kekayaan dan kemewahan kepada penyokong-penyokongnya. Ternyata wang lebih popular dari agama sebagai hadiah untuk mendapat sokongan. Apabila ditakdirkan hilang kuasanya sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri beliau terpaksa merobah janjinya untuk memperjuangkan keadilan untuk rakyat jelata. Keadilan yang mempunyai berbagai wajah ini pula ditafsirkan oleh yang bukan Melayu dan Bumiputra sebagai usaha menghapuskan hak dan keistimewaan orang-orang Melayu dan Islam..."
"... Sudah terlalu ramai pula dari kaum China yang bangga dengan ke Chinaannya, tetapi anti sikap 'racist' yang ada pada Melayu, turut marah jika diingatkan sifat imigran yang ada padanya, tetapi lupa untuk berterima kasih kepada pemimpin mereka yang terdahulu seperti Tun Tan Siew Sin dan Tun Sambanthan yang tidak lupa berterima kasih kepada pemimpin Melayu yang dengan rela dan senang hati menerima nenek moyang imigran mereka untuk menjadi rakan senegera dengan pemberian kerakyatan..."
As usual, readers have different comments. one of whom suggested that its time for the Malays to start eating pork in order to advance their status like the Chinese and Japanese.
"... Maybe as suggested, the malays should copy the Chinese and start eating pork to improve themselves overall. Obviously, not eating pork hasn't helped them to advance.."
Not with any bad intention, I guess. Sanusi was focusing more on the plight of the Malay politics and how their leaders have failed them in so many aspects. I reserve my comment.

Syukur Alhamdulillah! Pertama sekali ingin saya merakamkan ribuan terimakasih kepada rakan blogger saya Dato Ahiruddin Atan @ Rocky Bru kerana telah menghubungi saya semalam untuk menerima sumbangan derma RM5000 secara tunai untuk disampaikan kepada Koperal 104747 Khalid bin Che Rus.
Wang sebanyak RM5000 tunai didalam matawang RM100 itu diserahkan kepada saya oleh Dato Ahiruddin Atan @ Rocky Bru diperkarangan Royal Lake Club pada jam 3.30 petang hari Isnin 24hb Mei 2010 dengan pesanan supaya maklumat penderma tidak didedahkan kepada umum.
Saya menerima amanah Dato Ahiruddin Atan @ Rocky Bru dengan nama Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala dan bertekad untuk menyerahkan wang tunai itu pada malam itu juga! Merbahaya memegang duit tunai sebanyak itu lama lama sebab ianya amanah orang. Takut saya tak sempat tunaikan amanah, meninggal ke apa tiba tiba, tak ke naya? :P
Sesudah menerima wang tersebut dan bersalaman dengan Dato Rocky, saya terus menghubungi Tuan ACP Abdul Jalil Hasan, OCPD Ampang Jaya dan OCS Balai Ampang Cif Inspektor Tuan Norazman Zakaria secara sms memaklumkan kedua pegawai tertinggi Koperal Khalid akan penerimaan wang derma RM5000 tunai tersebut dan meminta kedua pegawai tersebut untuk bersama saya menyerahkan amanah derma itu kepada Koperal Khalid pada malam semalam juga!
Tak mahu saya membawa balik wang itu kerumah saya. Tak akan selesa hati saya selagi tak serahkan pada Puan Satona, isteri Koperal Khalid bersaksikan kedua pegawai tersebut di atas.
Alhamdulillah, Tuan OCPD ACP Abdul Jalil Hasan bersetuju untuk hadir ke berek kelamin Koperal Khalid dan kami membuat temujanji untuk bertemu disana pada jam 8.30 malam.
Selepas urusan saya makan malam dengan orang rumah saya selesai, saya terus menuju ke Taman Setiawangsa, Keramat AU untuk menunaikan fardhu maghrib di Masjid Muaz ibn Jabal.
Sesudah solat, saya bergerak ke kediaman Koperal Khalid dan seterusnya tertunailah amanah yang saya pegang dari Dato Ahiruddin Atan @ Rocky Bru sepertimana tuan puan dapat ikuti didalam video diatas.
Syukur Alhamdulillah sekali lagi kepada Allahu Ta'ala diatas kurniaan derma ikhlas dari usahawan yang mahu merahsiakan keterangan dirinya ini dan ribuan terimakasih saya ucapkan kepada Dato Ahiruddin Atan diatas jasa beliau membantu seorang anggota polis yang terlantar sakit sesudah koma sekian lama akibat di langgar lari manusia yang tidak bertanggungjawab setahun sudah.
Semoga Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala membalas jasa jasa para penderma rakyat Malaysia yang sudi membantu Koperal Khalid Che Rus dan keluarganya.
Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Dear brothers and sisters, fellow Malaysians.
Thanks to my exposure of Corporal Khalid's plight here in this blog and the following kindhearted fellow bloggers namely :
The visiting members of the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation had donated a total of RM7300 to Corporal Khalid's care out of their own pockets.
Thank you sirs for this humane gesture on your part. May Allah Azza Wa Jalla reward you accordingly.
Let's pray that their generosity will be rewarded by Our Lord Almighty with the best of this world and in the hereafter, Insya Allah.
* Another generous donation care of Dato Ahiruddin Atan @ Blogger Rocky Bru has been surrendered to Corporal Khalid's spouse through myself last night and the video is being processed and uploaded to my You Tube account right now. Will be publishing that article after this.

Mengikut kenyataan terbaru dari Exco Kerajaan Negeri, Iskandar Samad, tiada kelulusan baru untuk Pusat Judi Bola diluluskan di Selangor. Khabar angin kononnya 10 Pusat Judi Bola diluluskan di I-City adalah fitnah semata-mata dan tidak berasas sama sekali.
Malahan, sekarang ini, kedai2 yang menjual nombor ekor kepada orang Islam sedang diperhatikan dan kemungkinan besar lesen premis mereka tidak akan disambung. Malahan, permohonan untuk memanjangkan waktu operasi arked permainan video juga ditolak oleh Ahli-Ahli Majlis PR/PAS.
MB Selangor juga membuat cadangan supaya kedai-kedai judi yang sedia ada di kawasan majoriti Melayu tidak lagi disambung lesen premis mereka demi menjaga hati orang Melayu dan Islam.
Rakyat Malaysia seperti dipaksa menerima Islam Ala Khawarij amalan UMNO. Yakni, Islam yang menghalalkan perkara yang haram dan mengharamkan perkara yang halal.
Syukur ada PAS yang masih mampu memimpin umat Islam kepada Islam yang sebenar dan bukan Islam Khawarij. Kalau PAS tiada, saya yakin majoriti orang ISlam di Malaysia akan jadi Khawarij, kaki judi, kaki botol, kaki zina dan sbgnya. Segala amalan maksiat dan rosak akidah tajaan UMNO setakat ini berjaya dibendung dengan adanya PAS, alhamdulillah.

Fancy this…?? After 35 years I found my long lost friend.Where else..? In the internet in Facebook. Times have changed and in this technological savvy world we have to use whatever resources and ways to STAY AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION.
This today could be my mosts useless piece I have ever written on audie61 but who cares..!! Even Simon Cowell (American idon Judge) has his dark moods where everything seems a no and a no.
audie61 hasn't got over the fact that yesterday an old friend had a right all go at one of our ministers. It was headline news,'Talking behind lorries with microphone." by the DAP. He said to me 'What if the DAP becomes government and the PBB minister had to do it that way..??" Over 50 years BN has been in power and they are telling people that they should not do this or do that.
Just remember the whole world is changing and people cannot be fooled anymore. The YBs are people representative and they should be on the ground and not so high in the clouds as if nobody can touch them. It's time to wake up and BN better take heed.
Even today at breakfast one of my source said," SUPP losts because they were not united and one of the senior Ministers in SUPP openly said that DAP will push the knife further in if we dont wake up.It could be the beginning of the end for once a great party but 50 years down the round they forget who are the grassroots and forget to listen to even the smallest of problem."
In the facebook and thanks to the creators of this wonderful programme that we can make use of this to find our long lost friends. 35 years is not a short period and to absolutedly lost touch and to able to communicate again is JUST WONDERFUL AND FABULOUS. You will be asking me next..Who huh! Must be somebody special.Of course it is and tears just rolled of my cheeks when I saw the photo.Brilliant..!!
BN as the government of the day should look into connecting the world to Malaysia further with access to the rural areas where even the most inaccessible place in Malaysia can enjoy this facility. DAP is right they make use of whatever presents them while it seems the BN has overlooked the tinest details. The heartbeat of the nation is People Power and the people would love to see like what the PM practise walking with the people. Unfortunatedly the majority of the YBs and MPs forget where they come from. No use me knocking them down and its up to PM Najib to sort his troops out.
The frustrations of the people will turn to protests in the ballot boxes and if BN does not feel the pulse of the nation even FACEBOOK cannot save them. Its a wake up call the Sibu losts to the BN says a youth exco of the ruling BN government. We need to take it by the chin and move on and like a fighter we will not give up easily.
Its time the elder leaders in BN entrust the youth and harness their potential. By gripping on to power too long will not only see BN losing touch with the people but also eventually be wiped out if we are not careful.
Governments around the whole has changed dramatically and BN is really lucky that there are examples to follow. We need now to see how we learn from the opposition and do it better and make it happen.
Alright,we have more wrinkles on our faces,maybe less hair and put on a bit of weight but deep down we know that we as Malaysians want our country to progress with change and stay ahead as always like when we use to say," MALAYSIA BOLEH." Its yours Malaysia for you and me and whoever gets it right be it 35 years on finding another friend be it.1Malaysia in heart and spirit if we are challenged by another country thats for sure..
Have you changed and thought about it..? Oh no,that was rubbish i wrote but this is a blog right..?

To date, even after the end of two by-elections in Selangor and in Sarawak, there is no indication of whether the pledge by Pakatan to hold local government elections would be fulfilled in all Pakatan states.

Given the Dems' opposition to any drilling whatsoever (except by China off America's shores), would it be cynical to wonder if the Obama Administrations horrendously incompetent response to the oil leak is intentional?
I wouldn't be the first to ponder so:
Maybe they want to prolong this fiasco as long as possible in order to turn public sentiment against drilling for oil – thus benefiting their crony alternative energy plans? (Not that Big Oil aren't their cronies too.)
In related tactics, Obama probably spent all that money keeping his birth records hidden in order to keep baiting birthers, so that he has an easy-to-reach red herring/ad hominem defense to toss whenever valid criticisms of his performance as President surface.
(But we found it anyway.)
Sarah Palin would already be on the case if she were in charge. Yet another example of how Sarah Palin – or anyone else for that matter – couldn't possibly be a worse President than the Teleprompter Messiah.

He is also quoted as stating that its Umno's policies such as demolition of temples, revocation of scrap metal licenses and the incarceration of Hindraf leaders as the root causes of the loss of support for BN.
