Puak PRO PERPADUANG Lintang Pukang Mempertahankan Perjumpaan Dalam Gelap 2

Posted: 31 Dec 2010 02:03 PM PST

(Sambil mencium Kaabah, Tulang Besi telah berdoa supaya Allah SWT
Sesiapa yang mengikut komen2 YB Fatah bin Haron di dalam Facebook dua tiga hari ini akan melihat geng2 perpaduang kepanasan macam beruk kena belacan. Masing2 cuba membawa pelbagai cara untuk "menafikan" berlakunya perjumpaan tersebut. Antara percubaan mereka adalah mempersoalkan tarikh perjumpaan antara PResiden dan Timbalan Presiden PAS bersama Presiden dan Timbalan Presiden UMNO.

Mengikut mereka pada tarikh tersebut (23 October 2010) Tuan Guru Presiden berada di London.

Namun, dijawab oleh YB Fatah Iskandar:

Abdul Fatah Bin Haron
Guano sampai ada orang nak menafikan fakta saya sangggup berbohong pula ni. Kalau pun nak pertahan orang demo sayang jangan sampai peringkat berbohong dengan mengatakan pemimpin itu pergi London tarikh tersebut. Betul lah tarikh tersebut dia pergi London tapi dia naik kapal terbang malam, perjumpaan tersebut siang hari tarikh yang sama. Guana agaknya?kang ambo kubang kang berselerak habis kang. kang letang pukang


Bagi saya puak pro perpaduang dah jadi lintang pukang. Percubaan pertama mereka adalah seperti di atas. Yakni menggunakan "alibi" kononnya Presiden PAS berada di luar negeri. Tapi, sayangnya percubaan mereka yang kali ini gagal.

USTAZ NASARUDDIN MENIPU LAGI SEKALI BERKENAAN PERTEMUAN DALAM GELAP 2?

Seorang lagi ahli pro perpaduang bernama "MRK ALBANJARI menyatakan:



Mrk Albanjari
YB...siapa yg bincangkan tentang UG ni lagi?..... ana baru hubungi ust Nasa ...dia kata dia pun tak tahu menahu langsung tentang perkara ni..... Presiden juga kini dlm perjalanan balik dari UK...so siapa yg bertanggungjawab terhadap pertemuan ni.... YB kena perjelaskan perkara ni.... isu UG ni langsung tak releven dah sekarang...itu hakikatnya..... nak berpadu dgn umno sekarang amat mustahil.....


Namun seorang lagi blogger pro PERADUANG bernama "Penawar Rinduku" akhirnya MENGAKU pertemuan tersebut berlaku. Namun, beliau berkata:

Penawar Rinduku Abe Tah....pertamuan tu memang betul tapi jalan cerita yang bohong....jange buat perangai budok budok gok.....demo jah hok tua dok main FB laye ko budok2 sedor diri gok sikit....Galas tu lagu mano?


Adakah ini bermakna Ustaz Nasaruddin telah menipu lagi sekali? Pertemuan Dalam Gelap kali pertama dahulu pun beliau nafi, tetapi kemudiannya diakui oleh Pak Lah.

Sekarang ni nampaknya perkara yang sama berulang lagi?

BERTEMU UNTUK MENERANGKAN DASAR DAN POLISI PARTI?

Seterusnya Penawar Rinduku tambah:

Penawar Rinduku Abe Tah jange jadi jenis mudoh lupo...kita doh tulak UG namun dalam maso samo kita akan menemui semua pihak bagi menjelaskan dasar dan polisi kito....bo lah dok wirid putrajaya....putrajaya...putrajaya.....


Bertemu dengan Presiden dan Timbalan Presiden UMNO dalam gelap untuk menerangkan polisi dan dasar parti?

Untuk apa? Supaya Presiden UMNO menyokong dasar PAS? Supaya Presiden dan Timbalan Presiden UMNO mendokong dasar dan polisi PAS? Sejak bilakah dalam sejarah Malaysia Presiden dan Timbalan Presiden UMNO boleh memberi sokongan terbuka kepada dasar dan polisi PAS?

Bagi saya, ini adalah alasan paling dangkal digunakan untuk menjustifikasi pertemuan dalam gelap kedua. Saya rasa orang gila pun susah nak percaya cerita macam ni?

Yang menjadi isu sekarang ini adalah mengapa pertemuan dalam gelap seperti ini masih diteruskan sedangkan keputusan Muktamar jelas mahukan PAS mengukuhkan hubungan di dalam Pakatan Rakyat.

Pertemuan dalam gelap sebegini BAKAL melemahkan Pakatan Rakyat seterusnya melanggar keputusan Muktamar sebelum ini.

The present so called turmoil in PKR in hindsight could be a blessing in disguise. It would be time for them to mature /evolve with casting out of all the dirty/ unscruples /trojanrses /greedy/unprincipled/ easily bought over and host of unsavoury characters would have made freddy shiver.
It is time to get their things in order to be relevant. They have the political will. By going through the gauntlet of fire and lead they can come strong and relevant and yes, credible.

that the New Year was just a change of date and the reality would be as foggy in 2010 as it was in 2009 but then the January 1 attack was forgotten and replaced by more bad news or good news or feel-good news to make us believe that we were still living as Chile was rattled by an 8.8-magnitude earthquake that triggered a tsunami over the Pacific and created worldwide panic and killed 500 in February and in March a volcano called Eyjafjallajokull began spewing ash and smoke in such huge quantities that it darkened the skies over western Europe and grounded flights people and markets on this side of the Atlantic and on the other of side of the pond an oil rig exploded in April and created an oil slick so big that not only animals and birds but even the economies of the American states near the Gulf of Mexico began to sink but then there were a few months of good news starting with an announcement in May that scientists have created a functional synthetic genome and the next month of June saw Spain lifting the world cup of football but in July as Pakistan was submerged by the worst floods ever the mood turned gloomy again only to be uplifted in August when the WHO declared that the H1N1 influenza pandemic was over but the next month of September saw several Indian officials and politicians covering themselves in dirt as the Commonwealth Games were rocked by scams even as the games went off smoothly in October but the India Shining mood didn't last till November as secretly taped phone conversations proved beyond doubt that we were just a banana republic and in December it all came together as Julian Assange of WikiLeaks was thrown into prison on rape charges and bailed out by a group of supporters and Anonymous hackers who openly declared a cyber war against big powers and corporations thus proving that the global village is one of the biggest myths of our times maintained and sustained by a few vested interests but before looking at the myths let's look at the year and its lessons because at a glance 2010 may seem like any other year of terror attacks and murders and scandals and natural disasters and achievements and success and failures but that would be a mistake because 2010 was unique as it changed the world in a very fundamental way and we will realize its implications only in the years to come because this year something snapped inside us and the biggest myths of our times – globalization and its benefits for all – were blown to bits as we learnt with bitterness that we – all 6.5 billion souls on this planet — were not together in this ugly mess created by a few and a lesson was learnt quickly on the streets of France England Greece and Spain where ordinary people came out to burn the effigies of the bankers who have openly robbed the global financial system and attacked the politicians who are busy cutting social security benefits for the poor and proved that there was no substitute for street protest and direct action even as workers in Athens paralyzed the city as if there was an uprising in the country but the question is if all this anger and outrage and anxiety means something to the world at large when 2011 is about to arrive and we are getting ready to get lost in a drunken haze hoping to come out of it with new energy because many of us tend to behave like those three idiots faced problems with the chanting of All Izz Well in the hope that a mysterious power would listen to their desperate cry and send down an electromagnetic beam that would make the problem disappear and life would be back to normal — on the highway to success and mindless consumption – but there are also people among us who believe that every year tells a story we may not be ready to hear and absorb but such truths were thrown at us this year as Julian Assange opened a tap that leaked and revealed the nexus between states and corporations that suddenly all the lessons of recent years began to make sense because the lesson from 2008 was that in the most developed economies the state believed in socialism for the rich and capitalism for the poor and in 2009 the state gave tax cuts to the rich and benefit cuts to the poor and in 2010 it was income hike for the rich and fee hike for the poor and now we know why they keep talking about terror and national security and scandals and double-digit growths but these stories make no sense and they will not make any sense even if you read them ten times over because they are just a smokescreen to cover the real stories of brazen loot of public money and hijacking of public interest by a few and complete surrender of national interest to the interest of the sole superpower as we saw during President Obama's visit to India when he had the audacity to tell the Indian parliament that India was not doing enough to improve human rights situation in Myanmar and Iran and our MPs clapped like little children because they were glad the US President was talking about human rights situation in Myanmar and Iran and not in Kashmir and Chhattisgarh because that would have punctured the hot balloon called India Shining & Rising and busted all the myths of the second-fastest emerging economy and brought down the smokescreen that hides the crimes of the state and terror activities of the country's biggest cultural organization but the good news is that at least people in Europe and US have realized that their nations are deeply divided between the haves and have-nots and the final battles will be fought in political arena and not in swanky boardrooms and government conference halls where people are robbed of their resources and dignity and they have also learnt that you need access to hundreds of thousands of hidden cables and

The banning of the 1Malaysia logo is an act of mindlessness. It is an exercise in absurdity of the kind becoming all too common in Malaysian politics.

The real Idiot is in the Red
The decision to proscribe the display of the 1Malaysia logo within the jurisdiction of the state of Selangor is childish to say the least, and that is putting it as charitably as I can. It reflects particularly badly on the maturity of the Pakatan Rakyat state government of Selangor.
It was clearly a decision made without reference to the top Pakatan Rakyat national leadership whom I know would not have countenanced such action.
This one rash, potentially suicidal, political decision is bound to reinforce, and lend credence to, the growing conviction among many Malaysians that some Pakatan Rakyat politicians are totally incapable of shaking off their doctrinaire attitudes, including that of opposing anything and everything for its own sake. Even as they now don the mantle of the ruling elite in the Pakatan Rakyat governed states, they continue to behave in much the same way as they used to under less favourable circumstances.
The logical question to ask is whether the Pakatan Rakyat, with its politically imbecilic camp followers in tow, could really be trusted to do a proper job of taking on a bigger and more demanding show – that of administering the Government of Malaysia.
On current showing, I should be less than honest if I did not say that they would have to be more savvy and sensible before they would get my vote of confidence. I should be careless in the extreme if I did not consider hedging my bets. The Pakatan Rakyat leaders have their job cut out for them – like knocking a modicum of common sense into some of their colleagues in the Selangor state executive council.
There is, to me, nothing fundamentally wrong with the express aim of 1Malaysia. Surely it is not a bad thing to want to unite all Malaysians. My quarrel with 1Malaysia, as articulated by Najib, with or without APCO's hidden hand, is in its shallow, barely scratching the surface superficiality. It lacks focus, with the result that its true potential for serving the public good has been severely crimped, making 1Malaysia sound like one gigantic con job.
Najib would do well to remember, before throwing more good millions after bad, that the first syllable of the word "consultant" including APCO, is CON. But I digress. I am on record as being a fierce critic of 1Malaysia but I have not allowed my personal distaste for Najib's cheap, hollow slogan to turn me into a foaming at the mouth, saliva dripping, bulging eyed, raving demagogue.
There are surely more important issues that the Pakatan Rakyat politicians can think of doing for the benefit of the people of Selangor. Instead they chose to fall over themselves to indulge in petty, immature grandstanding. The timing could not have been worse.
Their supporters and sympathisers, who had hoped for more sober and responsible behaviour after the very ugly public exhibition of unremitting internal squabbles in the recent PKR leadership elections, were, in the event, enormously disappointed.
While the crusade against the display of the 1Malaysia logo in Selangor is being justified on the ground that it is all part of the BN political propaganda, a message has arrived, via my mobile, as if on cue, as follows: "DAP cannot have double standards. The bylaws should apply to ALL."
The sender alludes to the fact that DAP has used its party logo to publicise its Rocket Cafe in Petaling Jaya. Why, asks the gentleman, was no action taken by the local council? A fair point that requires an official response in the interest of transparency and accountability.
Pakatan Rakyat politicians have no business to claim the moral high ground and portray themselves as ethically and morally superior if they do not renounce hypocrisy and act strictly in accordance with the high ethical standards of behaviour expected of them by their supporters.
Putrajaya is many things to many people, but it is more than a shiny political trophy to be won by hook or by crook.
On balance, I daresay BN has made a reasonable go of it given the internal weaknesses inherent in a system of patronage with its infernal attendant preoccupation with rent seeking and cronyism. That system is set in a solid bed of unbridled corruption.
I understand the Pakatan Rakyat has its demolition team in the wings ready to smash the very foundation of corruption in our society. The Pakatan Rakyat has every right to set its sights on that glittering prize, but it first has to review and change, as appropriate, its whole range of attitudes before it can change Malaysia for the better. Otherwise Putrajaya will be a destination too far. It will merely be aspirational, a gleam in the eye, and a forlorn dream.
Lim Kit Siang's "one-term wonder" should be taken to heart and reflected

The year of TRUTH

Posted: 31 Dec 2010 10:21 AM PST


HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011

I received 176 New Year wishes on my mobile, SMS and MMS. However, I didnt reply to any (as a pre-paid user, you understand laaa). Anyway, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to family members, friends, fellow bloggers and blog readers for your kind words.

Azam baru? Nothing in particular except to continue working for my family. Age is catching up fast, dont you feel it?

I will go on blogging, hoping 2011 will provide us with some truths to some burning questions that hovered us in 2010. Things like did Anwar really bugger Saiful, will BN win Tenang state seat by-election, will the 'rapist' minister be brought to court, Sarawak state election, will there be a major Cabinet reshuffle, etc

Also, will local TV station give more space to our Prime Minister's wife (unlike other First Ladies... we hardly read or watch Obama's wife on TV).

And there are few snakes I would like to catch, too... with your help, of course!

Even as they now don the mantle of the ruling elite in the Pakatan Rakyat governed states, they continue to behave in much the same way as they used to under less favourable circumstances.
The logical question to ask is whether the Pakatan Rakyat, with its politically imbecilic camp followers in tow, could really be trusted to do a proper job of taking on a bigger and more demanding show – that of administering the Government of Malaysia.
On current showing, I should be less than honest if I did not say that they would have to be more savvy and sensible before they would get my vote of confidence. I should be careless in the extreme if I did not consider hedging my bets. The Pakatan Rakyat leaders have their job cut out for them – like knocking a modicum of common sense into some of their colleagues in the Selangor state executive council.
There is, to me, nothing fundamentally wrong with the express aim of 1Malaysia. Surely it is not a bad thing to want to unite all Malaysians. My quarrel with 1Malaysia, as articulated by Najib, with or without APCO's hidden hand, is in its shallow, barely scratching the surface superficiality. It lacks focus, with the result that its true potential for serving the public good has been severely crimped, making 1Malaysia sound like one gigantic con job.
Najib would do well to remember, before throwing more good millions after bad, that the first syllable of the word "consultant" including APCO, is CON. But I digress. I am on record as being a fierce critic of 1Malaysia but I have not allowed my personal distaste for Najib's cheap, hollow slogan to turn me into a foaming at the mouth, saliva dripping, bulging eyed, raving demagogue.
There are surely more important issues that the Pakatan Rakyat politicians can think of doing for the benefit of the people of Selangor. Instead they chose to fall over themselves to indulge in petty, immature grandstanding. The timing could not have been worse.
Their supporters and sympathisers, who had hoped for more sober and responsible behaviour after the very ugly public exhibition of unremitting internal squabbles in the recent PKR leadership elections, were, in the event, enormously disappointed.
While the crusade against the display of the 1Malaysia logo in Selangor is being justified on the ground that it is all part of the BN political propaganda, a message has arrived, via my mobile, as if on cue, as follows: "DAP cannot have double standards. The bylaws should apply to ALL."
The sender alludes to the fact that DAP has used its party logo to publicise its Rocket Cafe in Petaling Jaya. Why, asks the gentleman, was no action taken by the local council? A fair point that requires an official response in the interest of transparency and accountability.
Pakatan Rakyat politicians have no business to claim the moral high ground and portray themselves as ethically and morally superior if they do not renounce hypocrisy and act strictly in accordance with the high ethical standards of behaviour expected of them by their supporters.
Putrajaya is many things to many people, but it is more than a shiny political trophy to be won by hook or by crook.
On balance, I daresay BN has made a reasonable go of it given the internal weaknesses inherent in a system of patronage with its infernal attendant preoccupation with rent seeking and cronyism. That system is set in a solid bed of unbridled corruption.
I understand the Pakatan Rakyat has its demolition team in the wings ready to smash the very foundation of corruption in our society. The Pakatan Rakyat has every right to set its sights on that glittering prize, but it first has to review and change, as appropriate, its whole range of attitudes before it can change Malaysia for the better. Otherwise Putrajaya will be a destination too far. It will merely be aspirational, a gleam in the eye, and a forlorn dream.
Lim Kit Siang's "one-term wonder" should be taken to heart and reflected

 



Another wolf another time what is your agenda drrafick@gmail.com? display of contempt for jurisprudence and human rights,

Posted: 31 Dec 2010 08:57 AM PST

In a shocking display of contempt for jurisprudence and human rights, Iran has executed 63-year-old Ali Saremi — a political dissident since 1979 who spent a total of 24 years in prison, and was hanged on December 28 for "waging war against God". Many European nations have already condemned this brutality, but so far the U.S. government has remained silent. Coincidentally, a major symposium on Iran was held in Paris last week, featuring an impressive line-up of American and European dignitaries who were pleading for the U.S. to remove MEK (also known as PMOI) from its list of terrorist organizations. Saremi was a member of that group, which has been struggling for several decades to bring a democratic government to Iran.
You've never heard of MEK? No wonder. It represents a large group of Iranian dissidents, the Mujahadeen. They opposed the egomaniacal shah, Reza Pahlavi; they opposed the religious fanatic, Ayatollah Khomeini; and they oppose the current leader, the nuclear-crazed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
MEK's charismatic spokeswoman is 57-year-old Maryam Radjavi, who lives in France and has the backing of numerous European officials and parliamentarians. She spoke to a cheering crowd at the symposium, along with Rudolph Giuliani and several former Bush officials — Michael Mukasey, Tom Ridge, Frances Townsend — who denounced the ongoing American policy that demonizes the dissidents and thereby mollifies the repressive Ahmadinejad regime. About 3,500 exiled Mujahadeen live in a community in Iraq called Ashraf, about 70 miles west of the Iranian border and 40 miles north of Baghdad. It is also called Camp Ashraf, because of its insularity, and its precarious and dangerous existence. (Ali Saremi visited his son there, in 2007 — another charge against him.)
In 2003, American forces invading Iraq took control of Ashraf, disarmed the MEK members, screened them for past terrorist acts, and assumed maintenance of the facility. This provided a certain degree of security, even though Washington kept MEK on its "terrorist" list, as it had been for three decades — always with the intention of appeasing Iranian regimes by discrediting the dissident movement.
With the American forces now pulling out of Iraq, Baghdad is claiming control of the camp. This will seriously endanger the people of Ashraf, who are already being attacked by Iraqi military and paramilitary units, and who are being blasted night and day by blaring loudspeakers urging them to surrender to Tehran. It is clear that Iraqi authorities are acting in conjunction with the Iranian regime to suppress, or eliminate, these dissidents. If they are sent back to Iran, they will surely be arrested, and possibly tortured and killed, as were many protesters after the last Iranian elections.
Allan Gerson, a Washington-based lawyer who has represented victims of terrorism and human rights abuses, insists that MEK must be removed from America's terror list, and that these Iranian dissidents "must be supported, not shackled, in their struggle for a democratic Iran." It is a disgraceful and morally reprehensible policy, he says, that essentially appeases the Ahmadinejad regime, and blocks the possibility of bringing democracy to Iran. Does America have the guts, and the integrity, to finally help these people? Or are we going to continue to play poker with Ahmadinejad, bluffing our way into a deadly showdown?

Keith Olbermann is anything but hesitant when it comes to a battle with Fox News, and the MSNBC anchor took to Twitter Wednesday to share his views on the TV network he probably wouldn't even call a rival.
"Fox News is 100% bullshit," Olbermanntweeted several times Wednesday.
Olbermann also specifically directed comments at his 8PM competitor, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.
"I don't have as much hate or as many lies in me as O'Reilly," he tweeted.
One Twitter user, William R. Dickson, tweeted back at Olbermann with the following, which he retweeted to his 169,000-plus followers:
"Surely not 100%. Surely it is a rich blend of manure from a wide variety of farm animals."

BN MAKING PEOPLE HATES THEM!

December 31, 2010 by drrafick
  1. I believe the regular readers of my blog, would have sensed that off late my write up has been more accommodating in defending BN and whatever they have been doing. That is my character. If you do good I say you do good but if you do bad, I will scorn you. I have criticized PR quite a fair bit because of the party polls fiasco. I got myself closer to the BN folks in the process. Like millions of others in this country, I am fed up with the unfinished politicking in this country especially when it comes to petty issues which are aimed at scoring political mileage and not focusing on the people.
  2. My researched on Gapurna/Puncak Wangi/Azmin Ali shows me how dirty Malaysian politics are. It is my conclusion that FMT was used by AA recent enemies from the heart of Damansara to tear him down. That case actually straightens my thinking a fair bit. I have decided that I will not join politics and will remain as an NGO to championed people issues. I don't have the necessary skills to be a politician in Malaysia.
  3. Since the issue of the appointment of Selangor SS was highlighted, I sensed a strong Déjà vu of the Perak episode recurring here in Selangor. The many legal eagles who have been giving their comments about the issue in my blog have their own view. I am not a lawyer but I appreciation of the issue of law is simple. From the moral and constitutional point of view, I am clear in my mind the current Perak government is illegal. The former MB loss of support has not been established in the state assembly and Sultan has acted beyond his powers under the law. I have no doubt about that and for that reason my banner remains black.
  4. This morning, I was shocked to read that the Selangor Palace has sent out invitations to Kushrin appointment as the SS which is to be witnessed by the Sultan. The yearend shocking news shows how the palace has interfered in the administration of the State. The people interest has been placed secondary and no respect has been given to the due process and the laws. The law is clear that the SS is to be sworn in by the MB and not the Sultan. The Sultan is interfering in the administrative process.
  5. In my mind, the Selangor palace has gone overboard with their actions. It is not much different than in Perak and these two royals has initiated dangerous precedents which threaten the long term survival of the monarchy system in Malaysia. Now I begin to appreciate why Mahathir took steps to control the monarch. The monarch failed to take into account that BN may not rule this nation for ever. It takes an endorsement in the State Assembly and change in constitution to further limit their powers. Mahathir has given the people the unobstructed path to the legislators just to do that. One wrong move, I sensed that if PR wins the next GE, the powers of the Sultan will be further defined. There will be a long list on what they cannot do!
  6. The law clearly states that the SS swearing in to be done by the MB and not by anyone else. I guess what will happened is that the palace will invite Khalid to the event and automatically Khalid presence can be interpreted that the MB was present during the swearing in of the SS and therefore it is legal. His failure to attend will played by the media as disrespecting the Sultan. It is a catch 22 position. Maybe the MB should consider falling sick and get himself hospitalized on that day?
  7. Right now, the short sighted move by BN is damaging all the good work that Najib does. Perception index on Najib has improved in certain segment of the society. I guess APCO people have done their homework in forecasting the outcome and preparing a counter strategy in controlling the damage. They must have done the scenario planning and comes out with plan A, B, C etc. I am watching the development of the SS closely. If Kushrin does get appointed and sworn in by the Sultan than BN will lose my vote. Maybe the Sultan should step down from the throne and consider a fulltime political career.

Selangor Row Heading For Constitutional Impasse - By Shazwan Mustafa Kamal and G. Manimaran.

Posted: 31 Dec 2010 03:46 AM PST

The controversial appointment of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi as the Selangor state secretary may lead to a constitutional crisis if the Selangor Sultan carries out a planned swearing-in ceremony for the post on January 6.

Constitutional experts argued today that the ceremony, scheduled for next Thursday, was "unlawful" as the state constitution dictates that the oath of office has to be done in front of the Selangor mentri besar, and not the Selangor Sultan.

The Selangor government has insisted it has the final say in deciding the state secretary, after the Selangor Sultan agreed with Putrajaya to appoint Mohd Khusrin as state secretary despite Khalid having his own list of names for the top civil service post in the country's wealthiest state.

It is understood however that outgoing state secretary Datuk Ramli Mahmud's official oath of office was done in the presence of Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah back in March 2006, during the previous Barisan Nasional (BN) Selangor government.

"The Sultan has to seek legal advice from the state legal adviser before proceeding with this ceremony. On a matter like this, the Sultan acts on executive advice, His Highness cannot do it on his own. The concern is that if the ceremony is carried out, it can be declared null and void by a court of law. This is unconstitutional, as it is not within the provisions of the state constitution. The state constitution does not allow for this. It could lead into a constitutional crisis because it is not in line with the state constitution... but I hope this does not happen, that is why the Sultan must be extra careful before going through with this," Karpal Singh told The Malaysian Insider.

The veteran lawyer revealed that he had been asked by Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim to look into the legal aspects of the matter personally.

"I am actually looking at the laws right now... I have been asked to help on behalf of the MB," said the DAP lawmaker.

"The act of the Sultan can be taken up in a court of law," added Karpal.

Article 52 (4) of the Selangor state constitution stipulates that the state secretary "shall take and subscribe in the presence of the Mentri Besar the following oath of secrecy." There is no mention that the state secretary's oath of office has to be done in the presence of the Sultan.

Constitutional expert Prof A. Aziz Bari claimed that the swearing-in ceremony of the state secretary in front of the Selangor Sultan was a "new practice," saying that he was not aware that such a ceremony existed.

"As far as I know this is the first time such a ceremony is being held, even though I feel that it is only an official function and such a ceremony is not needed," he told The Malaysian Insider.

The law expert echoed Karpal's stand on the matter, saying that there was nothing in the state constitution which supported the basis for the planned ceremony.

"I don't think this logic can be used, it is like a state assembly Speaker not having the power to take action against state lawmakers but the Parliament Speaker being able to do otherwise," said Aziz.

The political secretary to the Selangor MB, Faekah Husin, confirmed today that the MB's office received invitation letters for the January 6 ceremony three days ago.

Khalid has himself indicated that he will not accept Mohd Khusrin as Selangor's new state secretary.

During a solat hajat function last night at his residence in Shah Alam, the Selangor MB had stressed that he still had the option to not accept Mohd Khusrin by not agreeing to him taking the oath of secrecy.

"If Mohd Khusrin does not take the oath of secrecy in front of the MB, then he cannot perform his duties as state secretary fully. He cannot attend state exco meetings or be privy to state secrets. Sure he will be state secretary in name but not by duty. MB is implying that this is the option Selangor has, to not allow the state secretary to angkat sumpah (take the oath)," Khalid Samad told The Malaysian Insider.

The Shah Alam MP was among those present during Khalid's function last night, where the Selangor MB made his first public statement on the matter.

The Chief Secretary to the Government announced on Monday Mohd Khusrin's promotion to replace Ramli, who leaves on December 31.

Selamat Tahun Baru - Kalau nak ubah....ubahlah!!

Posted: 31 Dec 2010 11:11 AM PST

Kita akan meninggalkan tahun 2010 yang penuh pancaroba ini dan akan menapak ke tahun yang baru sekejap lagi. Malam ini Kuala Lumpur akan merayakan kedatangan tahun baru dan berbagai macam parti dianjurkan di beberapa lokasi di bandaraya untuk menandakan kegembiraan menyambut tahun 2011. Penganjuran parti-parti ini juga diadakan di banyak tempat di seluruh negara dan kita sedang melihat ramai anak-anak muda membanjiri pesta-pesta ini.

Pesta-pesta seperti ini memang lazim dianjurkan di mana-mana kota besar di seluruh dunia dan jutaan wang ringgit peribadi dan kerajaan dibelanjakan untuk menjayakan pesta yang sudah menjadi tradisi bagi setengah masyarakat dunia dan juga di negara ini.

Tidak kurang juga orang-orang seperti saya duduk di rumah dan menonton TV untuk melihat berbagai-bagai rancangan yang menarik yang diterbitkan oleh stesen-stesen TV kerajaan dan swasta negara kita. Seronok juga duduk di rumah dan menonton TV dan tidak payah berbelanja banyak untuk bersama-sama mereka yang berkemampuan tinggi untuk mengeluarkan perbelanjaan besar itu menyambut kedatangan tahun Masihi 2011 yang belum pasti baiknya kepada kehidupan masyarakat kita.

Kalau duduk di rumah pemikiran kita memang tidak boleh melupakan kejadian-kejadian yang mempengaruhi keadaan kita sebagai rakyat negara ini selama setahun yang lepas. Jika diimbau kembali, kita akan teringatkan kepada siasah negara yang telah menempuh berbagai-bagai cubaan dan dugaan yang memerlukan pertimbangan rakyat untuk memastikan kita semua hidup di dalam sebuah negara yang aman damai walaupun tidak mempunyai kekayaan yang melimpah ruah.

Lagi miskin kehidupan kita lagi kita ingin melihat negara aman damai dan ditadbir oleh pemimpin yang bertanggungjawab kepada kita semua dan kita juga mahu melihat pemimpin-pemimpin kita membayangkan kepada rakyat bahawa mereka berkemampuan untuk berkorban jika mereka tidak berkemampuan untuk menjaga hati rakyat dan negara.

Rakyat kita sepanjang tahun 2010 sedang di dalam pencarian dan sedang melakukan 'soul searching' yang serius kerana rakyat sedang berhadapan dengan senario politik yang memilukan. Rakyat terutamanya yang sudah berumur sedang merasakan kebimbangan tentang keadaan anak-anak mereka yang tinggal apabila mereka sudah tiada lagi di dunia ini. Walaupun pada hakikatnya Tuhan telah menjanjikan rezeki bagi setiap umat sejak 120 sebelum dilahirkan tetapi kita masih lagi tidak dapat mengelak daripada usaha secara syariatnya untuk memastikan kehidupan anak-anak dan generasi yang akan datang terjamin.

Pertembungan nilai dan budaya yang begitu ketara menambahkan kebimbangan dari hari ke hari dan dan minggu ke minggu. Sebagai ibu-bapa dan datuk nenek kepada cucu-cucu kita yang begitu comel-comel sekarang ini terfikir di benak kita apakah nasib akan menimpa mereka setelah mereka dewasa dan kita sudah tidak ada lagi di dunia ini. Adat berkata yang tua-tua ini akan pergi dahulu dan tinggallah yang muda-muda ini untuk menempuh kehidupan yang masih jauh dan perjalanan masih panjang itu.

Saya memahami keadaan ini kerana bersama dengan mereka yang serius dan yang menhadapi keadaan yang telah saya katakan di dalam banyak tulisan saya. Saya tahu perasaan sebenar mereka yang di bawah-bawah ini kerana rungutan mereka selalunya diluahkan kepada orang-orang seperti saya ini.

Dengan politik yang tidak menentu sekarang ini, kerisauan mereka bertambah serius. UMNO sekarang sudah kehilangan kredibiliti yang teruk. PKR pula sedang menhadapi kekecohan dalaman. Pemimpin UMNO tidak lagi memimpin negara seperti yang sepatutnya. Kali ini kita tahu yang rakyat begitu serius untuk melihat perubahan berlaku kerana kita mahu mencari kepastian yang kita tidak lagi terjebak dengan politik yang begitu 'deveiving'.

Rakyat sudah jelak dengan pengumuman lepas pengumuman tentang perkara-perka yang kononnya sebagai transformasi ekonomi dan politik dan berbagai-bagai yang sangat payah untuk difahami oleh rakyat. ETP (Economic Transformation Plan) misalnya telah diumumkan dengan begitu hebat tetapi akhirnya telah pun diumumkan oleh PM Najib yang projek permulaan kepada ETP yang digembar-gemburkan ini rupanya dengan melancarkan projek MRT yang berharga RM36 billion tidak termasuk kos pengambilan tanah dan sebagainya.

Apa semuanya ini? Kita mesti ingat rakyat sekarang sudah pergi sekolah sikit-sikit dan sudah boleh baca dan membaca. Nampak sangat yang ETP ini hanyalah untuk kumpulan-kumpulan yang sama dengan kos yang begitu tinggi. Tidak ada siapa yang berfikir dan serius akan percaya yang kos untuk membangunkan MRT boleh sampai ke harga yang begitu tinggi.

Tidak dapat sesiapa yang berfikir mampu untuk tidak mempercayai yang projek seperti ini adalah cara pihak-pihak yang rakus untuk mendapatkan kekayaan yang ratusan kali ganda. Tidak siapa yang tidak percaya yang melalui projek-projek seperti inilah rasuah yang begitu sistematik dilakukan. Kalau itulah contoh ETP yang dilaung-laungkan itu, maka matilah rakyat. Untuk mendapatkan kehidupan yang sempurna maka ianya hanyalah ibarat mimpi di siang hari sahaja.

Rakyat sudah penat dengan perlakuan pemimpin-pemimpin kita yang tidak amanah dan tidak bertanggungjawab ini. Jadi bagaimanakah kita hendak yakin bahawa pemimpin-pemimpin hari ini merupakan pemimpin yang boleh kita letakkan amanah dan keyakinan untuk menjaga generasi kita yang akan datang? Perbidalan Inggeris ada berkata, 'if you cannot convince them, confuse them'. Agaknya itulah strategi pemimpin kita lakukan untuk mengelirukan rakyat dan mengambil kesempatan untuk menipu dan membelit rakyat sehingga kurus kering.

Sakit hati dan kepala memikirkan bagaimana pemimpin sanggup memberikan kekayaan kepada kumpulan-kumpulan yang sama dari dulu hingga sekarang dan menggunakan rakyat untuk menyokong mereka bagi mereka merompak dan memerah kita terus-terusan? Kebenaran tentang keburukan ini tidak difahami oleh ramai rakyat terutamanya di desa-desa kerana istilah dan 'jargon-jargon' besar dipergunakan oleh pemimpin pada hari ini, hanya untuk mendapatkan sokongan rakyat bagi menyambung projek rampokan yang menhimpit rakyat ini.

Parti yang nampak serius dan masih ada disiplin pada hari ini hanyalah PAS bagi orang Melayu dan DAP bagi orang Cina. Itulah sebabnya ramai kaum Cina sanggup memberikan sokongan kepada PAS dan sudah ramai orang Melayu memberikan keyakinan kepada DAP. Bagaimanapun, BN cuba untuk memecahkan sokongan kepada PAS dan DAP tetapi saya menjangkakan bahawa usaha itu tidak akan berjaya setidak-tidaknya buat sementara waktu ini.

Kehilangan sokongan yang banyak terhadap BN bukan kerana kempen pembangkang yang kuat tetapi oleh kerana 'testimonial' BN yang tidak baik sejak 2 atau 3 dekad yang lalu. Penyakit berbahaya yang menghinggapi BN sejak sekian lama tidak ada siapa yang berusaha untuk menyembuhkannya, malahan setiap pemimpin pemerintah sudah dihinggapi oleh kuman dan virus penyakit ini secara menyeluruh.

Kita tengok sahajalah dahulu. Kita berharap dengan kedatangan tahun yang baru ini ramai di antara pemimpin pemerintah akan membuat resolusi, 'tidak mahu rasuah!' atau 'kita bersihkan parti kita dari perasuah dan perogol di dalam kabinet dan pimpinan kita' atau apa-apa pun niat yang baik untuk rakyat dan negara.

ATAU yang lebih baik lagi, 'aku tidak akan bagi bini aku masuk campur dalam urusan negeri dan negara kita lagi.', atau 'bini mesti duduk rumah, tak payah keluar TV selalu, kerana rakyat dah menyampah ni'.

Ini semua cadangan-cadangan untuk resolusi tahun baru, jika berani untuk berubah. Kalau tidak berubah maka rakyat akan mengubahnya. Saya pun sudah hampir nak 'surrender' kerana tidak ada faedahnya menegur pemimpin bebal yang kita ada. Kalau rakyat nak ubah, ubahlah. Tidak ada apa lagi yang boleh kita lakukan untuk memperbaiki keadaan.

Pokok dek kau lah jang ooi! Togah dek lonjak posok ketayap kek kopalo. Tak dapek den nak nolong eh doh.

Khalid: Courts could be giving cops license for brutality

Posted: 30 Dec 2010 08:25 PM PST

Businessman Mohamad Zamri Ibrahim, who was among four wrongfully arrested for the murder of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin in 2007, is demanding justice after damages awarded to him and his brother-in-law Mohd Suhaimi Yusoff were overturned by the High Court in Kuala Lumpur. In August this year, Mohamad Zamri, 36, and his brother-in-law were awarded damages by KL Sessions Court judge Sabariah Othman for wrongful arrest and the injuries they suffered during their detention. However, High Court judge Has Zehnah Mehat overturned the decision last Tuesday, upon the attorney-general's appeal, accepting the argument that the failure of Zamri and Suhaimi to identify the individual police officers who assaulted them precluded the government from having to take responsibility. But, the High Court did not nullify the finding that the duo was indeed roughed up and their arrest was wrongful. By reversing the decision of the sessions court, the courts could be giving a license for police brutality, Khalid said. www.malaysiakini.com

What are you waiting for Pakatan! For the sky to fall?

Posted: 30 Dec 2010 11:54 AM PST

From Francis YM, via e-mail

Knowing very well there was sabotage in the appointment of the state secretary, why are you all not doing anything? Fear? If this happened to Umno, all its goons will be demonstrating all over the place by now and they would have made themselves heard, and succeeded.

The Selangor state assembly (Pakatan) should protest vehemently. If they cannot, then dissolve the state government immediately, and call for fresh elections. If they win again, which they will hands down this time, make it known to the Sultan that this is the wish of the rakyat and as such he should consult the ruling coalition on any matter before he makes a decision.

If  Pakatan delays and plays the wait and see game, then Sorry guy, 'sayonara'. We will see another

Perak debacle in Selangor with the rRoyalty taking center stage in politics.

Sime Darby's cost and time-wasting charade

Posted: 30 Dec 2010 11:51 AM PST

From Datuk Karim Tarmiz, via e-mail

I refer to the commentary, 'Sime Darby shamelessly seeking retribution' by Mohd Ariff Sabri Aziz. I agree with the writer. The amount to be refunded or claimed (about RM400 million) is staggering, and to make a few top executives responsible.

Even if Sime Darby wins the case, do they ever think the said money can be recovered and the individuals are prepared to repay. More importantly, do they have the capacity to pay. Are their net worth that much. Obviously no.

So, Sime Darby will end up with a moral victory but as far as the money, Sime Darby can forget about it. It will spend a lot on legal fees just to show its board's uprightness and be seen to do something

The point is, why can't criminal charges be instituted? Why can't corruption charges be instituted? I'm not a lawyer but with the cases as tabled by Sime Darby against the individuals, there are grounds of CBT and corruption.

At least charge them in court. The potential punishment awaiting them is worth the legal effort. Even the anguish the executives have to go through during the trial process of CBT and corruption is better punishment than the bankcruptcy they will declare if ever they are to lose the civil charges.

But at the end of the day, the real issues are major decision-making policies, chain of command, control system, approval authority, etc.

It is quite apparent that either the said executives have riden roughshod on all of Sime Darby's financial controls or the board and the relevant subsidiaries are totally at lost as to how big contracts are to be managed

Where is the audit committee and internal audit system? This is where the Sime board must be forthright. Todate these issues are met with complete silence.

All these civil suites are just irrelevant, time-wasting charades, trying to cover up the real weakness in Sime Darby. Millions will be spent on legal fees for nothing.

MIC, not the govt, should honour Rajagopal

Posted: 30 Dec 2010 11:02 AM PST

From Huan Cheng Guan, via e-mail

I fully agree with MIC's proposal that national football coach K Rajagopal be make a Datuk. But by asking the goverment to make him a Datuk, the MIC is not sincere. It should give a Datukship to Rajagopal through its own quota.

Every political party from Barisan Nasional has its own quota. Come on, be realistic, jangan cakap syiok syiok only. Want to bet with me that Datuk Seri Samy Vellu will get a Tunship?

He, nevertheless, deserves it. Samy Vellu has helped alot of Indians and others in their

political careers. So MIC, please spare one of your quotas for our national coach.
