Dato Seri Najib dilaporkan berkata:
Pada perhimpunan MCA hari ini, Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak menyertai Dr Chua dengan memberi amaran kepada pengundi Cina bahawa tidak mungkin PAS akan mengubah pendiriannya.
Adakah ini bermakna Dato Seri Najib pun bersetuju dengan kenyataan Karpal Singh?

MCLM is generating a lot of hype from both sides of the political divide, the movement was launched by RPK recently and funded by overseas Malaysians from London, draws similarity to the time of Sun Yat Sen the Chinese Revolutionary Leader and the founding father of the Republic of China and also known as the Father of Modern China who succeeded in overthrowing the all-powerful evil Imperial rule of the Ching dynasty in 1911.
Sun Yat Sen like RPK was in self-exile for fear of being incarcerated by the Imperial army, Sun made the Island of Penang in Malaya one of his base and raised millions from Overseas Chinese all over the world, Sun travelled as far as to the Hawaii and to San Francisco and to Canada rallying support and funds. Sun Yat Sen survived an assassination attempt and was rescued through the British Foreign Office, becoming a Hero whilst in London.
Sun's foresight in tapping the help and resources of the overseas Chinese population was to bear fruit on his subsequent revolutionary efforts. In one particular instance, his personal plea for financial aid at the Penang Conference held on 13 November 1910 in Malaya, helped launch a major drive for donations across the Malay Peninsula, an effort which helped finance the Second Guangzhou Uprising in 1911.
The role that overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia played during the 1911 Revolution was so significant that Sun recognized "Overseas Chinese as the Mother of the Revolution".
In Penang, Malaysia, the Penang Philomatic Union which was founded by Sun, their premise at 65 Macalister Road has been preserved as the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Museum.
Sun Yat Sen was all over the world and travelled even to India,the old Chinatown in Calcutta, India has a prominent street by the name of Sun Yat Sen Street.
Mind you that Sun Yat Sen travelled the world in the early 19th Century where the mode of transport was by Sea and any trip overseas was slow, lengthy taking much time and effort. Sun was driven by sheer determination to see reform and greater freedom for the distressed and oppressed people of China under the evil Ching rule.
Sun Yat Sen was driven by the political philosophy known as the Three Principles of the People which is Nationalism, Democracy and People's Economic Livelihood. Sun was a true Reformist who sought to transform China and fought against autocracy and oppression of the powerful Ching empire.
Sun is credited for the funding of the revolutions and for keeping the spirit of revolution alive, even after a series of failed uprisings. He successfully merged minor revolutionary groups to a single larger movement, providing a better base for all those who shared the same ideals.
So RPK, "Carpe Deim", Seize the Day! There is no better place to be than in London, one of the greater capitals of the free world and from where you can reach out rallying support to your cause of Reform and a greater Democracy. Through the Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement, the radical platform is established to champion the struggle against the shackles of dirty politics and corrupt practices impoverishing your people and country.
So Rise O' Prince of the Central Plains, be resolute and ponder no more as your destiny awaits while your people calls out in the silence of bitter darkness that has shrouded your land causing much hardship and sufferings. For as you make your determined stand the tide shall rise to cleanse your land and the people shall rejoice in a new found freedom and prosperity will once again be upon the fertile soil.

Saya mengkaji ALEXA RANKING sekali lagi.Dari pengamatan saya, MAJORITI blog Pro UMNO yang menduduki kedudukan yang tinggi tersebut adalah blog mereka yang MENYEMBUNYIKAN IDENTITI mereka.
GElaran yang biasa diberikan kepada blogger2 seperti ini adalah:
BLOGGER PONDANKalau dilihat kandungan blog2 tersebut, bolehlah kita rumus kepada beberapa kategori:
1.0 FITNAH - Terlampau banyak sekali tidak terhitung
2.0 QAZAF - Tuduhan liwat kepada Anwar Ibrahim tanpa 4 saksi yang adil, tuduhan zina, tuduhan Salahuddin Ayub berzina di Puduraya.
3.0 HUJJAH TIADA FAKTA - Bebas mengeluarkan hujjah tanpa fakta
4.0 KHABAR-KHABAR ANGIN - Bebas mengeluarkan khabar2 angin yang tiada asas
5.0 TUDUHAN MELULU - Bebas mengeluarkan tuduhan2 melulu
Mereka mempunyai kebebasan menyebarkan fitnah dan dusta kerana identiti mereka tidak diketahui umum. Mereka menyembunyikan identiti mereka kerana dengan cara ini, mereka bebas baling batu sembunyi tangan.
Dengan kata lain, sedari mula lagi mereka telah menyiapkan diri sebagai jentera menyebarkan fitnah dan dusta kepada rakyat umum.
Mereka BEBAS BERDUSTA KERANA RAKYAT TIDAK KENAL SIAPA MEREKA.
Tak hairanlah, SUMPAH LAKNAT TULANG BESI ke atas mereka sehingga hari ini TIDAK BERANI DIJAWAB oleh mereka.
Kalau mereka benar, kepada takut hendak menjawab SUMPAH TULANG BESI ini?
Terpulang kepada pembaca sekelian untuk menilai taraf blogger2 UMNO ini. Bagi saya, lebih baik dengar cakap orang gila tepi jalan dari mempercayai BLOGGER2 PONDAN ini.
Pondan pun kita nak percaya ke?

The posting of the report, 'BN and Anwar can't dance, Zaid says tango with Kita' is indeed sobering and food for thought. As Zaid has put it right, BN could not be redeemed for the reasons stated in article.
Anwar is more concerned about his own political survival and not doing enough bonding PKR, DAP and PAS as a unified force.
At best, the trio can just remain as electoral allies, which is not what the rakyat wishes. Listening to what Zaid Ibrahim has to say on the current political scenario is like a breath of fresh air.
I wish him luck!

I was very amused when I read in China Press recently that Klang BN chairman Teh Kim Poo has been shortlisted to be the Port Klang Authority chairman.
Here is a man, who in spite of being unpopular and even hated by his own MCA people in Klang, is being rewarded over and over again because he plays the game well.
Going by his modus operandi, Teh will certainly take his arrogance and mediocrity into PKA if his lobbying for the position is successful.
Do not forget that this is also the same man who had asked that a federal allocation for the development of Pandamaran be withdrawn after he lost in the last general election.
Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak must ensure this man is not appointed as the PKA chairman if he is serious about bringing change to the current administrative system.
It is baffling as as to why political patronage in our country runs so deep.
Teh's current position as the local BN chairman and his possible appointment as PKA chairman is a good example of political patronage at play.
Najib should find out who the real Teh Kim Poo is before endorsing any appointments.

In his candid speech to a 500-strong crowd recently, MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek, said: "We must promote a caring society in which the poor must be looked after. It is clear that preferential treatment must be given according to needs rather than race."
Chua also called for greater transparency in the government's tender system. He said the closed tender system has been associated with corruption and kickbacks and thus compromising the quality of projects in Malaysia.
He said: "By having an open tender system, it will help lower costs besides removing accusations of corruption. Public procurements should also be open to all small medium enterprises (SMEs). All SMEs must be given equal access and opportunities. Procurements should not be given based on race or equity requirement."
Sounds like Pakatan Rakyat making the call. Is the MCA president serious? Or is he confused? If he really meant what he said, then he should seriously consider pulling MCA out of BN and join PR. The chances of PR launching such a proposal are a lot better than BN. The people don't want NATO (No Action Talk Only).

I refer to the recent hikes in RON95 petrol five sen and also the 20 sen sugar hike by the federal government. I'd like to appeal to the Prime Minister to reconsider such hikes. Although the stated hikes may not appear to be high, but for the lower-income groups, it is burdening and pressuring for them to cope with the rising cost of living.
I understand the recent hikes are part of the subsidy rationalisation programme done by the government under Pemandu. However, the government also mentioned that there would be no more hikes for this year. It is regrettable that the government seems to have reneged on its promise not to increase fuel prices until the end of 2010.
I hereby request the kind consideration of the Prime Minister to use his executive powers as stated in the constitution to ensure prices of essential items such as fuel, cooking oil, sugar and other basic ingredients are controlled or even reduced if possible. This will make the rakyat happier, and at the same time reduce their cost of living.
However, if it is not possible or rational to reduce the prices of the commodities mentioned, please consider tax cuts and financial assistance for the lower income groups and the hardcore poor so that while Malaysia continues to prosper, the not-so-lucky Malaysians will not be left out in mainstream development.
I urge the Prime Minister and the federal government to take all the necessary measures to safeguard the well being of the poor and needy in Malaysia so that together we can achieve Vision 2020 without any Malaysian being left behind.

Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) would like to highlight two issues regarding the globally-publicised news on the planned release of orangutans on BJ Island, which is separated from Bukit Merah Laketown Resort in Taiping, Perak, for breeding and for subsequent release into the Belum forest in Grik, Perak.
This is a programme of the Bukit Merah Orang Utan Island Foundation (BMOUIF), and it follows the reported success of BMOUIF's Orang Utan Island, on which conservation efforts have been ongoing for about 10 years.
SAM is also concerned about the Tourism Ministry's move to introduce orangutans from Sabah and Sarawak into the Kanching Forest Reserve in Shah Alam, Selangor, and the Ulu Gombak Forest in Kuala Lumpur.
On the first issue, we want BMOUIF to explain the purpose and objective of releasing orangutans into the Belum forest. Why release them into areas that are not native to the orangutans?
Our other major concern is whether the removal of baby orangutans from their mothers has been accredited by any established primate authority as the right move, since it is natural for orangutans to be raised by their mothers to learn survival skills.
Such a move is contrary to established norms in wildlife rehabilitation and species conservation. Any proposed release of primates into the wild cannot be described as conservation. Conservation is focused on protecting species in their natural habitat and the habitat itself.
SAM is also greatly concerned over the reported move of the government to boost eco-tourism in the Klang Valley by creating "orangutan sanctuaries" in the Kanching Forest Reserve in Shah Alam and in the Ulu Gombak Forest in Kuala Lumpur.
According to Deputy Tourism Minister, James Dawos Mamit, orangutans from the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre in Kuching and the Sepilok Sanctuary in Sandakan, Sabah will be flown over to the peninsula once their new "homes" are identified.
Mamit has been quoted by the media as saying this (moving orangutans to the peninsula) needed to be done because "it is a directive given by the Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak".
He also said the government would not back out of this plan because an orangutan sanctuary in Kuala Lumpur would be a big success, as it would leave a "lasting impression on visitors in line with the government's intention to make eco-tourism a more prominent sector".
Tourism is not a panacea for orangutan conservation or revenue generation. Profits to private sector partners and the sole purpose of maximising tourist revenue without any credible conservation appear to be the driving force.
Sadly, businesses and government are not the advocates for the well-being of the orangutans, but more for the exploitation of this sentient species.
Rather than introducing orangutans into the two reserves, which can be disastrous, the government should:
• Seriously develop management recommendations that maximise the long-term survival chances of this endangered primates, especially when rates of forest conversion to plantations are high and human-altered landscapes dominate their range; and
• Encourage the conservation management of existing orangutan populations and the protection of their natural habitats.
Releasing the orangutans into Peninsular Malaysia is unconscionable and a bad practice, especially since this primate species is not native to this part of the country.
Our concern is also that should the orangutan become established and disperse, they might have a negative impact on the local ecosystem and other animal species.
This may include affecting native plants and indigenous wildlife, threat of communicable disease to flora, fauna or even humans, crowding, disruption of the ecosystems, competition for food and other factors.
If conservation concerns are a priority, then it would be best to translocate these animals to their natural habitats to prevent the many ecological disasters arising from the thoughtless release of animals from captivity to the wild.
Translocation would only be appropriate if the natural range of the orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra can no longer support the species or if the natural range of orangutans has been extirpated or become extinct.
A thorough environmental impact study needs to be conducted to evaluate possible negative consequences of such relocation, involving wildlife managers, veterinarians, wildlife officials, primatologists and orangutan scientists and the result of the report must be made public.

Zul Nordin dalam artikel terbaru beliau cuba menafikan kewujudan APCO. Tujuan beliau adalah menafikan wujudnya sebuah syarikat milik Yahudi yang menjadi syarikat rujukan (consultant) kepada Najib Tun Razak dan UMNO.
Sebenarnya APCO yang disebut di Bukit Aman itu adalah satu sistem yang dikenali sebagai "American Protocal Communication Outfit" - singkatannya APCO (gambar atas adalah logo badan tersebut). Ianya adalah satu sistem komunikasi terutamanya sistem perhubungan walkie-talkie. Contohnya produk terbaru yang dikeluarkan oleh APCO ini ialah APCO-25, satu jenis walkie-talkie digital (gambar sebelah adalah contoh walkie-talkie keluaran APCO). Sedangkan walkie-talkie lama (keluaran Sweden tak silap teman) menggunakan sistem monolog.
Di bawah, Tulang Besi ingin menunjukkan betapa PENDUSTA nya Zul Nordin ini. Sememangnya, Zul Nordin adalah seorang PENDUSTA kelas SATU dan tak heranlah dia dipecat dari PAS. Juga, tak hairanlah arwah Ustaz Fadzil benci sangat dengan manusia bernama Zul Nordin ni.

He is truly a political chameleon extraordinaire! No other Malaysian politician has such powers of persuasion and oratory skills which he has been using since way back then to mesmerize his audience into thinking that he, Anwar Ibrahim is the promised savior to the captivated masses.
Not even his political master back then, the now retired longest serving and 4th former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad has the gift of the gab so to speak as this glib tongued master political maverick and prime minister at all costs wannabe?
The video above shows his swearing of support for his boss Tun Dr Mahathir back then when he was still the Deputy PM.
His unparalleled catapulting spiral climb up the UMNO political ladder and chain of command is truly one for the historical books. He made such an impression upon Mahathir that the latter practically fell for his promising flair of being one of the best protege's that Mahathir could have wished for to follow in his legendary footsteps in heading the Malaysian political scene.
He practically overtook and cut off the late Tun Ghafar Baba from taking over from Tun Dr Mahathir as the 5th Malaysian Premier in the eventuality of Mahathir's calling it a day.
Anwar's treachery caused Ghafar Baba untold heartaches and he died a broken man. May Allah bless his soul.
Anwar Ibrahim is a shrewd and cunning political maestro. He knows how to turn over even his worst enemies to his cause.
You have to hand it to him to be able to make unsuspecting Malaysians sympathize with him and rally behind his endless twists and turns during his still continuing political odyssey.
When he was unceremoniously bundled off by the balaclava clad police special forces, millions of Malaysians including yours truly were aghast and appalled that even a Deputy Prime Minister such as Anwar could be so manhandled and driven off into the dark night to be incarcerated as we later came to learn.
We were all so angry at the apparent roughhandedness of Mahathir's henchmen as we referred to the UTK special forces and we seethed with anger at the way things were taking place back then.
We sympathized with Anwar when he appeared with that infamous black eye and loathed the very sight of Mahathir Mohamad for his dictatorial ruthless rule!
We all felt so sorry to see this once heralded former ABIM President be beaten up black and blue by the then IGP Tan Sri Rahim Nor, the tough no nonsense Inspector General of the Royal Malaysian Police who was the one who socked it to a blindfolded and handcuffed Anwar Ibrahim in the Bukit Aman, Malaysian Police Headquarters lockup!
Malaysians rallied to his cause when he was said to have been so seriously injured as a result of Rahim Nor's beating that his spine was said to have been so seriously injured and he suffered a crushed vertebrae causing him immense insufferable and excruciating pain that he had to be confined to a wheelchair!
The ruse is exposed in the following video.
In the public eye, the master chameleon put up a very convincing show of being in severe pain and grimaced his way into the sympathetic hearts and minds of enraged Malaysians who swallowed hook, line and sinker of Anwar's be-victimized role play!
Man he was good! So good that hundreds of thousands of charmed Malaysians took to the streets and thousands suffered in the clashes with the FRU, the Federal Reserve Unit of the Royal Malaysian Police.
That's Anwar for you. He was and still is one of the nation's topmost rabblerouser!
When he was stripped off his hard-gained power and position practically overnight by Mahathir who believed that Anwar was a sodomite back then and was ready to stage a coup in overthrowing him as the nation's PM, Anwar's vendetta against Mahathir knew no bounds.
Although he was later found guilty of abusing his political positions and convicted to spend 6 years at the Sg Buloh Prison, that didn't stop him from staging a comeback that today marks his not shying away from using whatever tricks and measures that would make even Niccolo Machiavelli turn red with embarrassment as evidenced in yesterday's unprecedented political circus stunt at the nation's Parliament!
This man will stop at nothing from going all out to overthrow any government in his zeal to squeeze himself into the Prime Ministerial seat of federal government power at Putrajaya!
His failed 16th September 2009 crossover coup ran out of steam and his federal government takeover agenda fizzled out into thin air back then.
Yesterday's stunt was something that was obviously preplanned and thought out well in advance because all those participating clowns pulled out the printed placards in the hallowed halls of the Dewan Rakyat in Parliament as if on cue the minute Anwar Ibrahim stood up to protest the Speaker's move to suspend him and the other other Opposition MP's who had been found to have contravened certain parliamentary rules!
There are numerous evidences captured and published videos in YouTube that incriminates the ringmaster of Malaysian Opposition parliamentary circus.
They have crossed all boundaries of parliamentary decorum and breached all protocols of this nation's highest institution of law and order.
This will go down as one of the darkest and most disgusting moments of parliamentary disorder brought about by none other than the PM wannabe and his legions of doom.
As citizens of this country who will be adversely affected if any of these power crazy betrayers of the Malaysian public trusts were to be left unfettered or disciplined as per the provisions of the laws of this land, then be prepared to face an era of anarchy which these clowns will unleash in the eventuality of them being stopped in their march to madness on their power trip journey to Putrajaya.
Its time for the ones who are in power to actually exercise the authorities that have been invested in them as the keepers of our national safety and security.
By that I am referring of course to the two cousins in the person of the Malaysian Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs.
Enough pussyfooting you two and lay the smackdown on all those who have breached Parliamentary rules and guidelines.
If you guys do not have it in you to enforce the laws of this country then please get some others who do not flinch in the face of adversity to just to the job!
Those who are in power but do not have the moral courage to uphold justice are the very reasons why these political chameleons are now morphing into destructive fire breathing dragons who will just burn down any remaining vestiges of honor and decency in our Malaysian Parliament.
Doesn't this make some of us yearn for the ironfisted era of Mahathir?
Yes, he was a mean old dictator but he kept the troublemakers in check at the same time and even defanged the Malay Sultans when one of Their Royal Highnesses turned feudal kingpin on a couple of his subjects.
My being open about what I feel about this former ABIM's maverick leader will surely not go down well with his diehard followers.
We have our own conclusions about whomsoever we wish to support or refrain from? It's a free country, right? We are free to rally behind whom we will.
It makes no difference to me. I write based upon what has taken place and his changing from being one who once advocated an Islamic identity for this country to his now apparent refutation of ever calling for an Islamic State to be set up here in our nation.
At least that was what I thought his ideals were back in his ABIM heydays?
Maybe I thought wrong?
Anyway, just be aware of the chameleon.
Political chameleon that is!
Makes me remember the hit song...

Raja Petra Kamarudin
VOTERS in MALAYSIA finally managed to press the right buttons. In voting OUT JUDICIAL HYPOCRISY they have made it abundantly clear that they will not allow themselves to be yoked to an odious past riven by the jagged edge of class politics. That from now on, as principle challenger Mahathir may have realised, it will take a lot more to woo voters than just give to their desire of living a better life. And that, as PKR has learnt, the people of Malaysia and elsewhere will not be swayed merely by the promise of a rosy future fueled solely by the optimism and exuberance of youth.
when PETE the killer gets killed
The message is loud and clear: That in the still fertile political firmament if you're prepared to sow the seeds of integrity and diligence you will reap a rich harvest. And though it's always risky pronouncing judgment on the nature of a mandate so soon after the event – especially without the benefit of psephological hindsight – it's safe to say that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, has done just that.
WE HAVE NO TIME CHASING EACH OTHER WITHOUT PURPOSE, GOAL OR STRATEGY!
Zaid has, therefore, selected the only escape route he could think of: blame ANWAR and PKR
Self-preservation is the default mode of the self-destructive. Because there is none, the current coalition will survive without either condemnation or confession. An occasional spot of PR-driven tinkering is all that is needed. zaid is trapped in an existential dilemma. He cannot blame himself for the wreck he has wrought. To do so would severely damage, if not abort, a political career born in genetic entitlement and wafted into that exhilarating but oxygen-thin ozone layer of celebrity. He cannot blame umno either, the favoured recourse of regional parties caught in a crisis, for he is a child of UMNO in more senses than one. He owes his job to the masters of the Capital,Power is the glue of politicsREADMORE

How come? I thought any foreign banks operating in Malaysia should give more space to qualified locals. Of course no locals could sit at the top (although few foreign banks in the country are lead by Malaysians) but employing more non-Malaysians is quite unbecoming.
Or not many Malaysians qualified for the jobs? And dont tell me Bank Negara or the Finance Ministry cannot dig out the provisions which regulate the status of local entity in foreign banks' operating here!
If a financial institution like Citibank employs more Filipinos than Malaysians, then something was not right.
Of course, the National Union of Bank Employees (NUBE) knew the situation better. If not, they would not have picketed in front of the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur yesterday in avowing their dissatisfaction over the issue (here).
Means that if we open our door to any foreign banks, including from Bangladesh, Nepal, Russia or Argentina, they are free to employ more non-Malaysians!
Take a look into this issue please, Mr Finance Minister!
