Fokus yang diberikan kepada isu APCO adalah syarikat itu dimiliki oleh Yahudi dan merupakan syarikat yang mencipta slogan 1 Israel. Dan mereka berkata syarikat ini juga mencipta slogan 1 Malaysia. Sebenarnya sama ada syarikat tersebut dimiliki oleh Yahudi atau Muslim bukan isu utama tetapi yang perlu diberikan fokus adalah tentang jumlah wang yang dibayar kepada Apco.

Pembaharuan yang akan dilakukan oleh PR jika diberi memerintah hanya memakan belanja RM19.2 billion sahaja dan bukannya RM51 billion seperti perancangan BN yang diumumkan oleh Najib. Najib memberi reaksi yang merendah-rendahkan perancangan PR itu.
Sebenarnya jumlah yang diperlukan untuk pembangunan dan transformasi itu berbeza diantara satu dengan yang lain. Jumlah peruntukkan untuk sesuatu projek yang sama juga berbeza bergantung kepada cara pengendalian projek-projek tersebut dan juga samada ada elemen tumbuk rusuk dan peruntukkan untuk rasuah didalam kos projek-projek tersebut.
Sebahagian besar kos itu ialah untuk pembayaran 'consultancy' yang lazim berlaku didalan sesuatu cadangan projek pembangunan untuk membayar mereka yang berkuasa dalam pembahagian projek-projek tersebut.
Oleh yang demikian jika Anwar Ibrahim mengatakan yang kos untuk pembaharuan dan transformasi ekonominya hanya melibatkan RM19 billion berbanding dengan RM 51 billion itu memang ada asasnya. Kita semua tahu banyak projek-projek pengswastaan selalunya melibatkan kos yang terlalu tinggi kerana terlalu banyak ketirisan kerana sifat tidak amanah dan tamak yang tidak terbatas dikalangan mereka yang berkuasa.
Apabila ada sahaja projek yang besar untuk rakyat kosnya akan ditingkatkan untuk mendapatkan kembali sebahagian dari kos itu sebagai imbuhan selain dari gaji yang telah ditetapkan. Bagi mereka sebahagian dari keuntungan besar itu mesti kembali kepada pegawai dan mereka mereka yang berkuasa. Mereka yang tidak amanah ini tidak segan dan silu untuk menerima rasuah seolah-olah memang sudah menjadi hak mereka untuk berbuat demikian. Bagi mereka yang sudah biasa dengan rasuah ini mereka akan terus rasuah walau pun itu kerja yang hina. Memakan rasuah ini ibarat makan petai; walaupun petai itu busuk tetapi ramai yang berselera makan jika ada ulam petai.
Itulah sebabnya kos pembangunan kendalian kita sangat tinggi kerana terlalu banyak kos 'variable' yang tidak berpatutan yang timbul dalam sesuatu projek itu. Semuanya itu adalah ketirisan yang sengaja diadakan untuk kepentingan setengah pihak yang tidak jujur dan telus melaksanakan amanah yang telah diberikan kepada mereka.
Akhirnya rakyatlah yang terpaksa membayar segala wang kerajaan yang datangnya dari rakyat melalui berbagai macam cukai dan duty. Jadi jika ada rancangan yang lebih murah dari apa yang dirancang oleh pihak pemerintah sekarang kenapa pula dijadikan isu?
Bagaimana pula pemimpin kita mengatakan yang jika diikut perancangan PR negara akan jadi bangkerap sedangkan perancangan yang dicadangkan oleh kerajaan sekarang adalah lebih tiggi dan akan menggunakan wang rakyat? Bagaimana mungkin yang berbelanja lebih kecil boleh membawa lebih kebarangkalian untuk bangkerap dari kita yang akan membelanjakan lebih dari 2 kali ganda dari jumlah yang mereka rancangkan untuk dibelanjakan itu?
Jika RM19 billion boleh membawa pembangunan yang sama dengan perancangan yang akan membelanjakan RM51 billion, tidak salah kalau rakyat memilih yang lebih murah..bukan gitu? Masalahnya kita selalu memandang rendah kepada kemampuan orang lain sedangkan kita tidak sedar yang kita tidak pun mampu untuk membentuk sifat memikirkan untuk membentengi rakyat dari kerugian. Tetapi slogan semuanya hebat-hebat, tetapi bak kata perbilangan, 'wal hasil balik asal' sahaja.
Najib berkata yang nasib cucu kita akan tergadai jika PR memerintah. Tetapi sedarkah kita semua yang kita ditolak adalah disebabkan masalah yang sama? Rakyat menolak kita kerana mereka memikirkan yang UMNO tidak lagi boleh menjamin masa depan generasi yang akan datang. Maka kita hampir kecundang didalam pilihanraya dahulu.
Rakyat sudah jemu untuk bergiat mempertahankan UMNO kerana rakyat yang ramai hanya memandang dan memerhati dengan air lior yang meleleh melihat hanya kumpulan peniaga dan ahli koporat yang sama menikmati perjuangan orang ramai menegakkan UMNO dan BN. Balik-balik kita dengan MMC-Gamuda, YTL, dan beberapa kumpulan yang lain yang diberikan keistimewaan sedangkan yang berpeluh dan berkeringat mempertahankan BN adalah rakyat biasa.
Jadi pemimpin kita hendak jadikan rakyat ini sebagai apa? Projek raksaksa yang puluhan billion senang sahaja diperolehi oleh mereka yang rapat dengan pucuk pimpinan sedang rakyat dibawah terpaksa kehulu kehilir untuk mendapatakan biasiswa dan penajaan untuk melanjutkan pelajaran. Dimana kah dia slogan yang mengatakan rakyat didahlukan itu? Hakikatnya slogan itu hanya tin kosong sahaja, tetapi diajak rakyat menyanyikannya siang dan malam.
Rakyat ramai hanya disuruh arah sahaja ibarat kerbau disawah; membajak dari pagi hingga kepetang sedangkan tikus kenyang dan gemuk dikepuk padi. Yang berat-berat disuruhnya rakyat untuk memikul tetapi YTL, Gamuda, MMC dan syarikat kroni yang lain yang membaham segala nikmat hasil perjuangan rakyat yang biasa tadi.
Sekarang rakyat sedang memerhatikan tingkah dan laku pucuk pimpinan kita. Jika masih tidak berubah sikap dan nilai kepimpinannya rakyat akan tinggalkan UMNO dan BN kali ini. Saya bukan ahli nujum atau pun seorang yang kashaf untuk mengetahui apa yang berlaku dimasa yang akan datang.
Tetapi dengan hanya menggunakan kekuatan akal yang diberikan Tuhan itu sudah cukup untuk menelah yang BN akan terjerumus kelembah yang lebih dalam lagi dalam pilihanraya yang akan datang. Apabila sampai ketahap itu nanti, jangan pulak menyalahkan pihak lain pula.
Pemimpin yang tidak jujur akhirnya akan kesaorangan ibarat anjing yang menjilat lukanya sendiri. Saya berharap apa yang saya jangkakan ini semuanya salah. Tetapi 'intuition' saya tetap mengatakan yang BN akan kecundang dibanyak lagi kawasan.Kita tidak payah nak panggil semua Ahli Parlimen untuk bertanya kerana keputusannya adalah 'predictable'. Kita akan menghadapi jalan sukar.
UMNO patut mula belajar untuk menyalahkan diri sendiri sebelum menyalahkan pihak lain. Rakyat bukannya berpihak kekumpulan yang lain kerana suka-suka. Mereka lari dari kita kerana mereka sudah meluat dengan sikap dan perangai kita dan kebanyakan rakyat sudah tidak sabar lagi menyaksikannya.
Perasaan luka yang dialami rakyat bukannya kecil. Selama ini kepimpinan kita sudah terlalu leka dengan kuasa yang mereka masih anggap sebagai hak dan kepunyaan BN sahaja. Anggapan seperti ini ternyata salah.
Ingatkan dan tandakan apa yang saya cakapkan hari ini. Jangan menyesal apabila sudah terjatuh didalam gaung yang dalam. Takut-takut tidak berdaya memanjat tebing untuk naik keatas.

Malaysia Today reports : Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim challenged Datuk Seri Najib Razak today to a debate, after the prime minister said yesterday that the Pakatan Rakyat's (PR) 100 day programme would bankrupt the country.
The opposition leader told a press conference here that PR's agenda unveiled at the coalition's second convention last month would only cost RM19.2 billion, lower than RM51 billion, which Anwar claimed was "stolen from the national economy to keep the cronies afloat."
"I am suggesting a public debate with the government so these figures could be presented to the public, so the people may decide based on the figures and not lies," said Anwar.
"It is a bit presumptuous for the prime minister to claim that Pakatan's 100-day reform programme will bankrupt the country since it is Umno BN-led government that had borrowed excessively each year," he added.
Yesterday, Najib described the promises as populist and irresponsible. He also claimed that the policy ignored the country's financial limitations.
Among the reforms promised by the PR coalition, within the first 100 days of taking over Putrajaya, is to increase the incentives for teachers by RM500 a month.
PR also promised to repeal of the Internal Security Act (ISA), abolishing the toll system by instructing Khazanah Berhad, Employees Provident Fund (EPF) and other government bodies to take over highway assets from the concessionaires, as well as offering free wireless Internet access to those in urban and semi-urban areas.
Elaborating the cost of PR's promises, Anwar said the special allowances for teachers and education officers would only cost the country RM3.2 billion annually, while maintaining the fuel and LPG subsidy would cost RM8 billion per year.
On the proposal to take over the toll system, Anwar said it would cost an additional RM8 billion to acquire the minority shareholders.
"The restructuring of the toll system under PLUS is expected to cost RM23 billion, based on the current offer made by Khazanah and EPF. The additional cost to acquire minority shareholders is approximately RM8 billion," said Anwar.
"The additional cost required to fund Pakatan's 100-day programme is only RM19.2 billion, an amount equivalent to the existing corporate subsidies fed to IPPs each year. This is a pittance compared to the RM51 billion stolen from our national economy to keep the cronies afloat and fat," he added

Program realiti Astro Awani bertajuk "Imam Muda" telah menarik perhatian JUTAAN orang Islam dan Melayu di MAlaysia. Bukan setakat itu, media antarabangsa yang sekular pun kehairanan dan dalam keadaan bingung berkaitan kejayaan program "Imam Muda".
Mereka hairan bagaimana program ini mampu menyaingi populariti program realiti yang lain seperti "Akademi Fantasia" dan sebagainya. Media-media antarabangsa seperti British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC); The Straits Times Singapore; The Wall Street Journal; Associated Press (AP); British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC); Agence France-Presse (AFP); Reuters and ARD Germany TC.
Misalnya, BBC melaporkan:
Show creator Izelan Basar says they are looking for the ideal imam - one who is well versed in spirituality and current affairs.
Panduan ini AMAT berharga untuk PAS. Tanpa PAS perlu berbelanja ratusan ribu untuk membuat kajian, program Imam Muda ini memberi PAS formula yang cukup ampuh bagi menawan pengundi-pengundi Melayu dan Islam dalam pilihyanraya umum yang depan.
Cabaran kepada PAS adalah mengenengahkan saf kepimpinan yang membawa imej "setara/sama berat" antara dunia dan akhirat.
Kalau saf kepimpinan PAS masih lagi melambangkan imej ulama yang duduk di masjid dan beribadah sahaja, PAS hanya akan mampu menarik sokongan dari orang Melayu yang cenderung pada Islam sahaja. Pengundi-pengundi atas pagar sudah tentu menjauhkan diri dari PAS.
UMNO TIDAK MAMPU MENAIKKAN KEPIMPINAN BERIMEJ IMAM MUDA
Kelemahan UMNO adalah kepimpinan UMNO tidak mampu membawa imej "Imam Muda" ini. Barisan kepimpinan UMNO yang penuh dengan cerita-cerita skandal kewangan dan seks sudah tentu longlai dan lemah dalam membawa imej Imam Muda.
Juga, UMNO sebagai parti Khawarij Malaysia sudah tentu tidak mampu menawarkan imej Islam terutamanya setelah mereka menghalalkan judi bola baru-baru ini.
Juga, Presiden UMNO sendiri, Dato Najib Tun Razak, tidak akan mampu membawa imej Islam yang sangat-sangat didahagakan oleh orang Melayu dan rakyat Malaysia.
Inilah yang sangat-sangat ditakuti oleh UMNO dan Najib. Mereka berhempas pulas mahu menarik PAS ke dalam Barisan Nasional kerana mereka tahu sekiranya PAS membariskan kepimpinan persis imej Imam Muda, sudah tentu hayat UMNO akan sampai penghujungnya.
MAMPUKAH PAS MEMBARISKAN KEPIMPINAN YANG SELARAS DENGAN IMEJ IMAM MUDA?
Saya tak berani kata. Pemimpin2 Pemuda dalam PAS lebih suka membawa imej Tok Guru Pondok dan lebih suka bercakap pasal isu akhirat berbanding isu dunia. Jarang kita dengar Ketua Pemuda PAS bercakap berkaitan isu kenaikan harga barang ataupun penswastaan air di Selangor ataupun isu tingginya hutang negara ataupun kejatuhan tahap pelaburan di Malaysia dsbnya. Isu yang suka disentuh Ketua Pemuda PAS adalah isu yang berkaitan dengan akhirat.
Sedangkan rakyat Melayu mahukan seorang pemimpin yang boleh bercakap isu dunia dan akhirat. Itulah sebabnya program Imam Muda menjadi begitu popular.
Sedar atau tidak, itulah juga sumber kekuatan Tok Guru Nik Aziz sepanjang beliau menjawat jawatan Menteri Besar Kelantan. Beliau bukan sahaja berbicara isu akhirat, beliau juga berbicara isu semasa dan hal ehwal awam. Oleh sebab itu, rakyat Kelantan amat sayang terhadap beliau.
Para perwakilan PAS harus berfikir dengan mendalam terhadap barisan kepimpinan yang mahu mereka kedepankan selepas ini. Seeloknya barisan kepimpinan ini mesti membawa keuntungan yang maksima kepada PAS tanpa perlu PAS bekerja kuat di peringkat akar umbi.
Kejayaan program Imam Muda menunjukkan betapa rakyat Melayu di Malaysia dahagakan kepimpinan yang mahir dalam hal ehwal dunia mahupun akhirat. Kepimpinan yang hanya tahu membicarakan hal dunia sahaja ataupun hal akhirat sahaja tidak mampu menarik sokongan yang maksima kepadanya dari orang Melayu di Malaysia.

Anwar has responded to Najib criticism!!
He has challenge Najib to an economic debate!!
I am sure most Malaysian will be interested and in favour of this debate!
Lets pressure Najib to accept this debate and see what our country's top leaders are really made off!
Ding!! Ding!!! Ding!! The ball is in your court Najib!
Pakatan Rakyat de facto chief Anwar Ibrahim today challenged Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to a national debate to see who offers the better economic policies for Malaysia.
Anwar said it is only proper for Najib to take him up on his "invitation", as the premier had publicly questioned and ridiculed Pakatan's policies and figures outlined in their ambitious 100-day economic transformation plan.
The PKR advisor said the prime minister's attack yesterday on Pakatan's economic policies was unfounded.
The BN's own policies are the very reason the country's national debt has hit RM362.39 billion or 53.7 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP), said Anwar, a former finance minister.
Training his guns on the IPPs, he said Petronas is forced to subsidise the top five IPPs a total of RM19 billion annually for gas used in power production, enriching a select few cronies while bleeding the rakyat dry.
In an immediate response to the debate challenge, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin tweeted:
"Is that all you've got, Sir? Retweeting someone else's words. You and me, Dato' Seri. On the economy. Let's debate."
This invited a quick retort from an Anwar supporter: "Why would Anwar want to debate an outgoing MP? Besides, not even a minister and 4th floor."

Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud, 74, who married a 28-year-old Syrian national a month ago, is expected to hold a wedding party on Saturday.
Taib, whose Polish-born wife Laila died of cancer in April 2009, had set tongues wagging when he held a closed-door wedding ceremony on Dec 18.
The akad nikah, held at his official residence in Jalan Demak in Kuching, was attended by 200 guests including family members, close relatives and friends.
According to Sarawak Report, a website which has exposed a string of alleged corruption cases involving the long-time chief minister and his family, Taib will formally announce his marriage on Jan 15.
"Indeed, Taib's failure so far to officially present and acknowledge his wife in the normal fashion has made it inevitable that people have been left speculating over the speed and secrecy of this event," said the website. Sarawak Report questioned the lengthy period of silence and the lack of official confirmation of the marriage.
"A wedding should be treated as a public celebration and not a secret scandal...," it said. According to Bernama, Taib today confirmed that a banquet will be held on Saturday to mark his marriage.
Taib, 74, who seemed to be in a jovial mood, appeared to be protective of his wife, Ragad Waleed Alkurdi (left).
"Leave her alone for some time because she is trying to adjust," he told journalists.
Asked if Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who will be on a working trip to Sarawak this weekend, would attend the banquet, Taib said: "I don't know. I've got to check. I just came back."
The wedding bash is expected to be held at the Dewan Santapan of the old state legislative assembly complex in Petra Jaya.
Not much is known about the bride but she is believed to be a former flight attendant. Sarawak Report has posted a number of photos of the couple, who appeared at the wedding of Deputy Chief Minister Alfred Jabu's daughter, Barbara Dubah.
I am not saying what Taib is doing is wrong but I can't help find similarities with him and Hugh Hefner (84)/Crystal Harris (24). Well there is one difference. At least Hugh Hefner is not shy about it!!
Another explosive scandal
Meanwhile, the website revealed yet another explosive scandal - this time allegedly involving newly-wed Barbara (right) and his brother, Gerald Rentap. The siblings, along with cousin Robert Lawson Chuat, jointly own a company called Herba Aromatics, which is said to have sold a recently acquired piece of land to federal agency Felcra for RM7 million. Sarawak Report alleged that Herba Aromatics has obtained the 2,000 ha plot for a song from Taib, who is also planning and resources minister. "This land was 'purchased' from the state in 2008 for an agreed price of just over RM1 million and is located in Lidong Road area, Betong," said the website.
It is alleged that the native owners of the land was paid a miserly RM500 per door (of the longhouse). Moreover, Herba Aromatics has yet to make all the necessary payments for the land over the past two years. "Did the chief minister perhaps tell Jabu's (left) children that they didn't need to find the money to pay the state of Sarawak until after they had sold it on to somebody else at a much higher market price? Would that sale perhaps have been to Felcra for RM7 million? "Sarawak Report demands that the Land Registry makes clear whether Jabu's children have yet paid all the money owing for this land, and if so when?"

I just one to place this Malaysiakini article on my blog to remember this guy because he will probably not see justice against the people who killed him!
The witness who allegedly saw a man being beaten to death in a police lock-up has lodged a police report. Accompanied by Lawyers for Liberty representatives N Surendran and Fadiah Nadwa Fikri, the witness, A Sargunan (right), lodged the report at the Dang Wangi district police station this afternoon.
In his police report, Sargunan, who is also victim M Krishnan's friend, said that they were in a mutual friend's house in Cheras when the police stormed in late at night on Jan 2. The police allegedly made both of them lie on their stomachs, then started kicking and stomping on their backs with boots on. They were taken to the Bukit Jalil police station for alleged drug-related offences. Sargunan, a 34-year-old taxi driver, also said Krishnan had confided in him over how the police had beaten him up and showed him his bruises on his ribs in the lock-up. "Krishnan said he was in extreme pain and could not breathe and then he started vomiting," said Sargunan in his police report. Over the four days that they were detained, Sargunan said that Krishnan had pleaded with the police to take him to hospital for treatment. Sargunan claimed that Krishnan was instead dragged out of the lock-up and beaten up before being thrown back into the lock-up.
Krishnan died at the Bukit Jalil police lock-up last Friday. While his family claimed that he had been assaulted - based on bruises and cuts on the body - the police and the hospital have claimed that he died due to a stomach ulcer. Surendran had insisted that the police should allow the family to have a second autopsy done on Krishnan. "They had lied to us, saying that we can have a second post-mortem on Krishnan only to renege on their words at the last minute, asking us to get a court order for it instead," he said.
"There is no reason for us not to have a second post-mortem unless they have something to hide." He also claimed that the hospital is in cahoots with the police to pressure the family into taking the body back for the funeral.
He said the hospital had called Krishnan's widow this morning to ask her to remove the body "immediately" before they start imposing a storage charge of RM30 a day. "They simply want to prolong the pain and mental anguish of the family," he said. Spectacle outside station
The event was not free of drama when Krishnan's friends and relatives converged in front of the police station in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, waiting for Sargunan to show up. About 20 of them unfurled a banner saying 'Justice for the Death of Krishnan', while an equal number of police officers moved in to order the crowd to disperse. After the brief stand-off and negotiations between the police officers and Subang MP R Sivarasa and Kapar MP S Manikavasagam, who were also there, the crowd was allowed to stay. Sargunan arrived about an hour after the stipulated time, with Surendran saying that the former had gone into hiding for fear of being arrested by the police. "What if he gets arrested and waylaid by the police for some other charges?" said Surendran, referring to the case of K Selvach Santhiran. Selvach had testified at the inquest for R Gunasegaran - who had died in police custody - but was later arrested by the police without trial under the Dangerous Drugs Act. He has been in detention since last October.
PLEASE!! PLEASE ALL GOD FEARING MALAYSIAN!!! VOTE BN OUT SO THAT WE CAN REFORM THE POLICE INSTITUTION AND GET JUSTICE FOR THESE VICTIMS!!!

Anwar cabar Najib debat ekonomi, KJ yang tawar diri!
Sounds interesting. In a press conference today, the Pakatan Rakyat de-facto leader threw a challenge to Prime Minister to enter a special debate on the economy.
As a prime minister, he said Najib should accept the challenge.
"I dont want to have a debate with his rep. He is the PM, so he should take up my challenge. A debate with PM is the best solution as he was the one who launched an open attack on us, that if our program is implemented, the whole nation will go bankrupt. So, its better for Najib himself to defend his statements and at the same time give us the opportunity to defend ours. Let the rakyat be the judge."
Read the story by Agendadaily.
Pemuda Umno Youth chief, Khairy Jamaluddin instead offered himself for the debate with Anwar, accusing the former deputy premier as distorting what Najib has said.
Its information chief Rezal Merican also urged Anwar to accept KJ's challenge while Senator Ezam told Najib and KJ not to 'entertain' Anwar's challenge as it would be 'a waste of time'.
Now that everybody can enter into debate to defend his or her case, why not Rais Yatim calls for a debate with a few bloggers? That would be more interesting, dont you think so, guys?

Since the very first day when Datuk Seri Najib Razak took over as the prime minister of Malaysia on April 3, 2009, I have yet to realise whether he hears and sees what is happening in the country. Every time he utters anything, it seems to be out of context of what is actually happening. I am wondering whether he is living in his own make-believe world. Or is it the custom of any top leader in Malaysia to be in denial mode and believe that everything is rosy.
The actual situation in the country is not without due concern to everyone and yet the PM seems to be oblivious to all this. That racism is on the rise seems to have missed his notice. The diversity in culture is not a hindrance definitely but racism is. This is the fundamental problem that the PM must come to grips with and act in a sensible and responsible way.
Many incidents have occurred that give rise to instability in the country. All these incidents have not been attended to although in one case, the Cabinet made a decision on the matter. This is in relation to children below age being converted by the spouse who had converted to Islam. This was done without the consent of the other party who did not convert to Islam.
It is the fate of these innocent children that is of concern to everyone. The tussle between the party who remains with the original status as against the party who has converted to Islam who also had the backing of the Islamic religious authority and other enforcement agencies can create undue stress on the children.
The Cabinet issued a ruling that children below the age of maturity must remain in the original religion but this was never enforced. The law itself must be amended to give effect to this ruling. That has not been done.
These cases have been mentioned on numerous occasions in the media but there seems to be no effective solution to the cases. The aggrieved party failed to get a fair hearing and thus resorted to actions that bring uncertainty to the future of the children.
The case of Indra Gandhi and her children is one case in point.
Children were kidnapped and taken away as the process of seeking a just solution was not available. Must this go on endlessly?
The cases of body snatching will astound Hollywood filmmakers. There must be a sensible and fair method to these charades. Converts to Islam who reverted back to their original religion find it difficult to convince the Islamic religious authorities of their new status. It is an impossible situation in Malaysia; one who is a Muslim cannot opt out of Islam.
Suffice to mention the cases of Gan Eng Gor, where the police took away the body from a Chinese funeral parlour to give him Muslim burial rites and so was the case of Mohan Singh. A solution needs to be found to avoid such cases in the future.
Then there is this unnecessary emphasis on ketuanan Melayu which is creating unease among the non-Malays. The media controlled by the party in power never cease to highlight this issue. The PM did not caution this group to either tone down their obsession or divert them to other more productive topics that will benefit the people as a whole.
The MCA under Chua Soi Lek has voiced out a number of contentious issues. Even the Gerakan became more daring in giving support to these issues brought out by Soi Lek.
Possibly, all these outbursts are just fodder for the forthcoming general election. After the elections, the MCA and the Gerakan, like the PM, will close their eyes and cover their ears to the ramblings and complaints by the people.
Now suddenly even the political parties in east Malaysia which are members of BN had also voiced their dissatisfaction on certain actions of the government.
All these problems have not been attended to. Nothing can materialise if all these grievances and incidents are not resolved. This is the stark reality facing the country.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, although the Cabinet was about a third of the size of the present Cabinet, issues were tackled and not allowed to linger on. There was a very effective monitoring system put in place by the late Tun Abdul Razak. Thus issues did not go out of control.
The various government agencies were effectively carved in their roles to avoid them creating empires and become unduly powerful. The Islamic religious authorities and the syariah courts were never above other agencies. Civil law was supreme.
The government then was effectively practising "people first, service now" without resorting to unnecessary sloganeering.
The government then listened and gave recognition to what the people said about their needs in seeking justice and a fair treatment to conflicts. The government did not pose itself as being all knowing.
The leaders too talked within the context of reality.

We don't need experts or eminent persons to tell us if Teoh Beng Hock's human rights have been violated. Ask the common man in the street and he will tell you right away that Beng Hock's rights have been blatantly and violently abused and violated. This fact is as plain as daylight.
So why do we need a royal commission of inquiry to find out "whether it (MACC) had violated human rights". Beng Hock's family is not interested in this. Malaysians don't want a RCI to waste its time in investigating procedures adopted by the MACC with regard to his death. That's not the issue, dear Prime Minister.
All that everyone is dying to find out is how did Beng Hock die? Why did he die? Who caused his death?
The inquest has clearly stated that it wasn't a suicide. How then did he drop from the 14th floor and land on the 5th floor of the MACC building? Who was responsible for this fall from the 14th floor, dear Prime Minister?
The inquest has confirmed that there were pre-fall neck injuries. Who caused these injuries on Beng Hock's neck? Why were these injuries caused? What damage did these injuries do to Beng Hock? Did he die as a result of these injuries? This is what Beng Hock's family is demanding to know, dear Prime Minister.
Why are you wasting everybody's time setting up a RCI to carry out irrelevant investigations that will not throw any light as to how Beng Hock died — and why. This is what the whole country is interested in, dear Prime Minister.
Beng Hock was interrogated for nearly 11 hours from 5pm right up to 3.45am the next day in the most inhuman way. He was deprived of food, denied sleep and rest and subjected to intense questioning. What does that suggest, dear Prime Minister?
Before 5pm on that day —July 15, 2009 — it was a working day for Beng Hock. Assuming that he got up for work at 7am, it would add another 10 hours to his non-stop questioning for nearly 11 hours. That would mean he was on his feet for almost 21 hours. Doesn't it strike you as an extreme form of torture that he was subjected to in a barbaric manner, dear Prime Minister?
Under the circumstance, do we really need a RCI to tell us that Beng Hock's human rights were indeed violated? Isn't it very apparent? Isn't it rather obvious?
What is not apparent and what is not obvious is: How did Beng Hock die? Who caused his death? Who are his killers? That is all Beng Hock's family is dying to know in order to bring closure to this human tragedy, dear Prime Minister.
The purpose of the RCI should simply be to establish why and how Beng Hock died. Any other investigation will not do justice to Beng Hock's family, dear Prime Minister.

Senator Ezam Mohd Nor,the double headed snake and his double conspiracy
to be arrested soon
Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is running scared. Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad did not mince his words when he accused the federal government of manoeuvring to dissolve the Selangor state legislative assembly by appointing Mohd Khusrin Munawi as the state secretary.
Khalid said, "This is the evil and despicable plan of BN. Najib wants to create chaos in Selangor and force the dissolution of the state legislative assembly."Khusrin, the former private secretary to former-Selangor Menteri besar Muhammad Muhammad Taib and outgoing Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) director, has been commanded by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to initiate moves to create dissent.
This deliberate attempt by Putrajaya to cause turmoil in Selangor is reminiscent of the debacle that Najib engineered in Perak last year. The ousted Perak Menteri Besar Nizar Jamaluddin who suffered at the hands of Najib has already warned Selangor of the fate that will befall them if they do not take precautions.If Najib was surprised at the way the rakyat reacted to his machinations, none was more surprised than the Sultan of Perak. His Royal Highness was taken aback at how Najib managed to galvanise the rakyat. In the end, evil may have triumphed but as they say, elephants never forget…and others might even add, they never forgive either.
Najib is desperate. And a desperate man will resort to desperate measures.He has to call an election before long. But his knows that his 1Malaysia is falling apart. Even his one-time mentor former Prime minister Mahathir Mohamad is confused by 1Malaysia. His deputy has rejected it outright. His Cabinet is seen as corrupt, inept and not practising his 1Malaysia views.Worst of all, his non-Malay BN component parties such as MCA and MIC, are toothless and do not attract popular support. Whenever there is a racial or religious infringement, the best they can do is wring their hands in mock horror. They are what can be termed as "wasted space".In the first year of being in office Najib spent most of his time overseas and neglected to attend to matters of state. His reputation abroad needs to be propped up by centre-fold advertisements costing USD5million highlighting his wife's achievements. His wife invites Hollywood celebrities, who visit under the cloak of secrecy, to be shown "the real Malaysia". We ask, which version of the "real" Malaysia?Najib knows that under normal circumstance Pakatan will triumph in the general elections. That is why he has to do his preparatory work first.This man is dangerous. He was not elected as Prime Minister and has no known credentials of being a leader. Being a career politician by piggy-backing on the name of his father is no real test of leadership. What true experience has he of the real world?No leader blatantly offers the people of a town RM5 million in exchange for votes. No leader tries to influence voting by offering to repair schools. Broken-down schools should be repaired as a matter of course.Najib's cabinet is in disarray and tainted with known charges of corruption, sexual scandals including rape, and mismanagement of the public purse.Najib knows he has a lot to lose. He is also aware that if he goes down, he drags others down too – People who rose up the ranks not through merit, strength of character and their policies. These people are dependent on him to stay in power, to protect them.Just like Najib, these sycophants fear for their positions, ill-gotten wealth and reputation. They know that with the Opposition in power, they will be stripped of all these and may face ruin in prison.These people used bribery and blackmail to serve themselves, robbed us of our democratic rights, and in some cases eliminated others so that they could achieve what they have always craved for – power.Najib believes he can take Selangor by his underhand tactics. Just like he what did in Perak. So how deep are his pockets? What sort of leader pits its own people against each other? Is he so morally banrkrupt?Perak's experience was not a fight of non-Malays versus Malays, like what his father engineered just over four decades ago.This time, Selangor's power tussle involves a people who have are oppressed and who are fighting for the simple desire to enjoy their democratic right. These people dare pit their wills against those who gladly accept further ruin by Najib.Najib has conveniently forgotten his "People First, Performance Now" slogan. He is on shaky ground and he does what he knows best – sowing the seeds of confusion and discontent. He is no true patriot. He is a deceiver and suffers amongst other things from crab-mentality.The Opposition win of 2008 was a humiliating blow for Umno. Najib cannot afford another defeat.He is aware of the people's support for Pakatan. So he pulls out his remaining trick, which involves royalty.This is Najib's most dastardly act, to involve the Sultan. He has everything to lose so he does not care if he compromises the
neutrality of the Sultan.Najib is prepared to use the Sultan against his people. Just like what he did with the Perak Sultan whose popularity plummeted after the fiasco in Perak.How does one know? You can gauge it from the lack of warmth that the people normally have reserved for the Sultan of Perak.These days there is neither spontaneity nor depth of feeling and sincerity when Perakians meet their Sultan. The Perak Sultan's drop in popularity is directly attributed to Najib.Najib's greed is to stay on in power. His fear is to be charged with the various crimes that he is suspected of having committed.Najib is prepared to risk the future of the monarchy by using the Sultan as a pawn.That is why the most dangerous man in Malaysia is Najib Abdul Razak.
Pakatan Rakyat has claimed that Barisan Nasional is engineering an Ops Lalang-style crackdown on the opposition
by erecting banners critical of the Selangor Sultan in PR's name.
Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad today revealed that a banner insulting the Sultan and bearing the logos of PAS, the DAP and PKR was found this morning in Section 9 here.
The banner, which also bore the mark of the Selangor PKR information bureau, read: "Dimanakah keadilan Sultan dalam isu pemilihan SUK? Siapa lebih berhak?" (Where's the Sultan's justice in the state secretary appointment issue? Who has more right?)
Khalid stressed that PR had never questioned the royal institution and said the banner pitting the opposition against the palace was part of BN's "slick game" to cause trouble in the state by stoking Malay anger.
"I am concerned there may be an evil plan… to give the impression that we want to oppose the palace, which can be used as an excuse for emergency laws or mass arrests under the ISA (Internal Security Act)," he said.
It was later taken down by a PAS member on Khalid's instruction, only to be put up again temporarily under orders from the police, who wanted to take a picture of the banner.
Khalid said the banner and the police's insistence on recording it to make a report was part of BN's "slick game" to cause trouble in the state by stoking Malay anger.
"There may be an evil plan… to give the impression that we want to oppose the palace, which can be used as an excuse for emergency laws or mass arrests under the ISA (Internal Security Act)," he told reporters today.
Khalid said the tactic was reminiscent of what happened prior to Ops Lalang in 1987, when strident rhetoric between Umno Youth and MCA Youth over Chinese vernacular schools led to a clampdown on opposition leaders and the press.
"They (BN) appear to be doing the same thing now by claiming we have a dispute with the palace when, in fact, the banner was put up by Umno," he said.
Sekinchan assemblyman Ng Suet Lim said the attempt by BN to fan the flames of hatred was a "desperate" move by the ruling coalition to keep hold of its weakening grip on power.
The DAP man said the banner was "yet another BN project" which showed Umno's inability to respond to PR's 100-day reform plan with anything other than "disgusting" political tricks.
Yahya Sahri, representing Selangor PKR division chiefs, said similar banners were put up in Johor following Datuk Chua Jui Meng's appointment as Johor PKR chief last year.
"We are convinced that this is the work of Umno agents… because the same thing happened in Johor," he said.
All three stressed that PR had never questioned the position of the Rulers as the opposition was committed to upholding the integrity of the royal institution, together with Islam as the official religion, Malay as the national language and the special position of Malays.
Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia last weekend claimed that Malaysia will end up a republic if PKR and the DAP's rule of Selangor continues.
"The lesson to be learned from the Selangor crisis is that if PKR and DAP [continue to] rule, much damage will be done. What is certain is that Malaysia will be on the threshold of a republic," the weekend edition of the newspaper said in an editorial written under its Awang Selamat pseudonym.
The editorial insinuated that Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, under orders from the DAP, wished to trigger a constitutional crisis in the state as a "test case" before similar action was taken in Penang and the rest of the country.

Tom DeLay was sentenced to three years in a Texas prison today, and I saw it coming almost 20 years ago. Sort of.
Back in that distant, unwired summer of 1991, I was a wide-eyed recent college grad starting a brand-new job as a staffer for a member of the Texas Legislature. One of my first assignments? To prepare a detailed analysis of a recently passed, 100+ page government ethics bill for my boss, who surely already knew it in detail already but who wanted to make sure that I did, too.
Texas legislative ethics had an oxymoronic reputation back then, and within 18 months we would lose our fourth House Speaker in a row (the Honorable Gib Lewis) for playing fast and loose with the lobby. That ethics bill I analyzed was designed to stop such exciting habits as the handing out of campaign contribution checks on the Senate floor during a vote, but it also reaffirmed a long-standing ban on direct corporate and union money in Texas politics. That was a rule folks took seriously, and it was the one that ultimately guaranteed The Hammer a spell in a Texas slammer.
But really, at some level his Fate was determined by something that ran deeper than a casual flouting of the law — it was his very attitude toward the office he held. Ronald Reagan may have called government the problem rather than the solution, but DeLay and too many of his colleagues took those words to heart and seemed determined to put them into action. From the Clinton impeachment to the unforgiveable tarring of Max Cleland, from the cynical naming of the "USA Patriot Act" to the "K Street Project," DeLay and his ilk treated politics like a blood-sport — and governing as the spoils of war.
Jack Abramoff ran with that logic in one direction, defrauding his own clients even as he dangled his access to power in front of their noses. His friend DeLay ran in a different direction, trying to ensure his tribe a lock on that power, a drive that ultimately ran him afoul of Texas law. Arrogance is in there, for sure, but also contempt — for government, for the people who elected him, and for governing itself. That's a serious consideration, too, because why would you govern responsibly when you don't respect the institutions of government itself? Contempt is dangerous for other reasons: disdain creates distance, and ironically that distance makes the jump to hate all too easy, particularly when red meat is served daily on radio, blogs and cable "news."
And after hate comes what? Sitting here two days past the shooting of a congressmember and the murder of six people standing near her, it's hard not to think that a public discourse dripping with contempt for public service has played a role in more crimes than one.
We all have dreams, but my dream like those of my friends who are blogging on this web-blog is a Malaysia where we seek justice for all and respect for dignity of difference ,and where religion and race are removed from the political equation and where we are a caring and compassionate people, not a bunch of religious bigots and racists.
With the cooperation of Tean, I am posting King's I have a Dream Speechin Washington DC (1963). Listen to King and let us make the BERSIH March of 2007 a new beginning and the end of business as usual. Electoral reform, freedom of the media, meritocracy, and transparent and open government should be the pillars of our nation.
That we are all free men is the dream we must make real. We must be judged by the content of our character, not our ethnicity and religion. We cannot walk alone. Let us walk together in brotherhood. Good weekend to you all, my dear friends.—Din Merican
The remarks of Ezam Mohd Nor, the former chief of PKR's youth wing, makes me want to laugh. Indeed, I wonder how a seemingly intelligent fellow like him could say such ridiculous things.
He challenges the president of PKR to sack the leader of the party, who happens to be her husband. Putting aside the family ties of the two Datuk Seris, why on earth should the president of the main opposition party give two hoots (or any hoot for that matter) about what a political has-been and traitor to the cause has to say about her leadership. If anything, she'd rather listen to a sincere and concerned rakyat more than anyone else. I guess Ezam has forgotten that, ultimately, the justice PKR was fighting for is for the rakyat, not politicians or political parties.
I find it odd that he brings up the issue of morality as a basis for his reason leaving and, at the same time, attempt to defend and identify with the notorious state assemblyman for Port Klang who just resigned and became an independent who supports BN.
If we use morality as the yardstick, isn't Umno widely known to be corrupt and morally bankrupt? Indeed, the party is led by a leader who is tainted with the murder of a Mongolian interpreter, not to mention that he is also a "whipped" man, whom everybody knows (including the Minister Mentor of Singapore) kowtows to his infamous wife. So, is Ezam saying that it's not okay to sodomise but it's okay to murder?
Hmmm, I wonder what he meant when he said that good leadership must be based on strong morals and Islam. As fas as I know, Islam does not condone corruption or murder. So, I must ask: What is going upstairs between Ezam's ears?
If you think this is just Anwar's problem, then, think again because if the justice system in Malaysia is damaged beyond repair, then, all Malaysians could be confronted with situations like Kugan, Anwar and a whole host of other abusive and life threatening occasions experienced by the less fortunate.
To many, it was unreal. Ten years ago, Anwar had faced a similar charge which saw him being jailed until the conviction and sentence were overturned on appeal in 2004.
In the latest episode, he was arrested on July 16 by balaclava-clad police – a scene reminiscent of that in 1998 – but freed a day later after being questioned and made to undergo a medical examination.
His supporters claimed that the government would detain him pending trial, ostensibly to prevent his campaigning for the Permatang Pauh by-election. But when Anwar claimed trial on Aug 7, he was freed on a RM20,000 personal bond.
Much else has happened outside the courtroom, including the allegation that Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had a 'hidden hand' in the matter since he had met with Saiful prior to the complaint. Najib has denied this.
In 1997, Anwar wanted to go after a senior minister, who had been colluding with local authorities to alienate land in Johor, Kedah, Langkawi and Sepang. Of course TUN MAHATHIR won't have this happen to the then UMNO treasurer. In the 90s, the ACA and the AG opined that there was a case against Rafidah over the allocation of shares to her son-in-law. TUN MAHATHIR stopped the proposed prosecution. In the late 90s, the Director-General of the EPU was "caught" with a rather large bundle of cash in his office drawer by the ACA. Again, TUN MAHATHIR said "no" to the proposed prosecution.What would be different if the MACC had been in place at those times ?
THE DATES THAT EXPOSED THE MASTER CRIMINALS AT WORK
Everyone knows Pattail got promoted to AG
For his role in Anwar's case for sodomy
Maha Shithead purposely brought him
To stop and kill Anwar Ibrahim
They now trying to do the same scenario
Najis, Musang, Pattail, bastards, the trio
Trying, again to do it all over
But round one went to Anwar's favour
The judges have become brave and daring
Saying enough is enough to your raping
Of the court and the judiciary
With your repeated cases of sodomy
The exact dates Anwar received the support and assurance from the BN MPs cannot be ascertained by us. While, all these MPs have indicated support for Anwar, pending his return to Parliament, we can only approximate the beginning dates where initial negotiations were taking place, between end March 2008 and mid April 2008. This was the period immediately after the general election.
The master network of Mahathir is large! It spreads across the country. Their network has detected this movement from Anwar!
The criminals at work!
A clear picture of the crimes of these two evils are described here in the chronology of dates beginning 11th. May 2008.
11th. May 2008 – Najib met Mahathir (It is here the drama began, started by Mahathir in calling Najib a coward in April. The big evil engineered the small evil Najib to its front door. Needless to say the true drama that is going to be unfolded for the next few months began here, only to be polished later!)
The period between 12th May and 28th. June 2008, where all the make-up men, artists and props were designed to perfection to stage this truly Malaysian Mahathir-Najib drama! The drama needed to be staged fast to deprive Anwar from entering Parliament. On 19th. May, as per their master plan Mahathir left UMNO, together with Sanusi, etc. This created much interest amongst Malaysians and the international community, distracting every one from the actual complex drama that is being staged by Najib.
29th. June 2008 – Police report was filed by Saiful. Anwar took shelter at the Turkish Embassy. The international community condemned the police report. Their first drama nearly backfired. While the proof of innocence falls on Anwar's shoulder, the enemy is not waiting to waste time on this anymore, because the rest will be taken care of by their junior conspirators, to ensure that Anwar will be forever distracted and remain engaged in the framed-up sodomy.
16th. July 2008 – The enemies arrested Anwar and locked him up overnight. This was the day Anwar supposed to announce the resignation of his wife from the parliamentary seat. It was shelved. The world condemned and too many voices called for the release of Anwar. They had no choice. Anwar was released the next day. The criminal's first plan backfired completely. Please note that the criminals were aware of Anwar's every move, while Anwar was totally ignorant of plots against him. This is how all action-packed dramas are staged. We the people, the innocent fools watch silently not knowing whether there was a drama in the first place. We are always distracted by these criminals, who are so used to get what they want from us. They always show us their good side. This is what we call a plot within another plot! They will be at their best, when they engineer the worst!
31st July 2008 – Wan Azizah informed the press that she is resigning as a member of parliament.
6th August 2008 –The date of nomination and election was announced by the Election Commission. The enemies also announced that Anwar must appear at the police station, on 7th August, to formally charge him on the sodomy case. The criminals were planning again one more time before Anwar file in his nominations. This time to bury his political career once and for all. And lock him up for good after the formal charge.
"This is the actual time the criminals were furious with Raja Petra. Raja Petra became their deadliest enemy for releasing Dr Osman's SD on the same day at the point of arrest. Their plot again failed. Failed miserably. Anwar was saved by Raja Petra on this very crucial date. As expected on 7th August, Anwar was formally charged, but not detained in the lock-up."
10th August to 25th August 2008 – The criminals were trying very hard to destroy Anwar's political career between these dates. Anwar was alerted and our postings were featured in Malaysia Today warning Anwar of the plot to disqualify him on technical errors on his nomination papers. Anwar engaged another proxy should he be disqualified. Attempts were made on that day to disqualify Anwar, but the criminals got frighten after seeing
Anwar's huge crowd. The BN government brought its entire government machineries to canvass at Permatang Pauh. A foreign journalist told us; practically the capital of Malaysia was shifted to Permatang Pauh during these dates. Leaving the Parliament as a white elephant without MPs to transact its normal business. It was unprecedented in Malaysian election history. Mahathir's silence during this canvassing period was telling. For he and he alone knew, no way Anwar can be defeated in his home turf. Those who try are fools indeed! Najib headed this election campaign. The only catch phrase the entire leadership of UMNO was coached to speak about was sodomy, not their election agenda. Umno leaders and members were fools not knowing what game was being played by these two evils, except Tengku Razaleigh and Abdullah Badawi, for they knew too well what happens when these two evils get together.
Swearing and more swearing. While the testimony of Romlan did help, the entry of Tok Guru Nik Aziz during the last days of canvassing despite his illness changed the entire scenario. We believe this is the point of time Tok Guru knew what was really happening and what the evils were up to. Anwar won by a huge majority. Huge cracks appeared in the criminals' next course of actions. But they were not defeated by their cruel fantasies!
The evils plot on the night of defeat!
On this night of defeat, the criminals plotted to ban access to Malaysia Today and other "offensive" websites. They have to put a permanent stop to the ever increasing "danger" of Raja Petra and gangs. They started with Malaysia Today. The cries of the people went louder! Friends, please note that no one has accepted claim to this evil action so far! Each is trying to protect another, for they too are fools manufactured under Mahathir's factory! The proprietor of this factory may have changed, but the products manufactured remain the same!
The most sickening move of all is to plot to revise the budget of this country. To revise budget 2009 to appease Sabah and Sarawak. What sort of evils are these, running this country at the whims and fancies of their crooked minds! Don't they have a limit to their nonsense! Or they need to transgress all boundaries of morality to achieve their twisted aims! These are true evils at work!
28th. August 2008 – Anwar was sworn in as a member of parliament. Najib and Abdullah were absent. Perhaps this was the first day Mahathir looked really an outcast, with Anwar inside the parliament. Najib turned up only the next day, being the Budget day. That was the first time in the history of Malaysia; the budget was revised during the last moment to fit in the development programme for Sabah and Sarawak. This we knew was the work of Najib misleading Abdullah, the day before when both were absent in the parliament house. Najib was being educated well. Mahathir knew from the beginning that Anwar had the numbers. All these MPs would defect only if Anwar becomes an MP. Mahathir and Najib were plotting this game well. But Anwar is not stupid this time. He already prepared a much better reform programme which is more workable to the current and future well-beings of Malaysia. Anwar criticized Abdullah's budget for lacking competitiveness, which our economists agree.
5th September 2008 – Dr Osman appeared in front of the media for the first time. This has shaken Najib, a little. The criminals need to plan for their next course of action, but have to cover their tracts too. This is the delay they cannot afford. He knew now there is no way to implicate Anwar, bearing in mind that Anwar was also privy to KL General Hospital (2nd report), which Anwar declared during election campaigning.( Incidentally, the second report has also nullified Anwar from any wrong-doing.)
Najib's anger naturally would turn to Raja Petra as the main culprit who seems to be a constant stumbling block to all his grand plans. It was Malaysia Today which released the SD first. Najib knew unlike the private investigator's SD, he cannot fix up the SD of Dr. Osman this time around, because he already appeared in public to attest to the SD he made!
5th September to 10th September 2008 – This is the most crucial dates in their next grand plan. Their constant companion and an excellent scapegoat. Muhyiddin met up (the evil word is summoned) with Mahathir. Their grand plan is to get rid of Abdullah. And they also need to fix up Anwar, by transferring Anwar's case to the High court. They need to kill several birds but with many stones, unfortunately they aren't many left. Transferring the case to high court would be an easy plan, as Abdul Gani Patail is their own guardian at law. This is also the dates where Muhyiddin was instructed to inform Najib to proceed with their last game plan, to convince Abdullah to implement the Operasi Lallang in disguise (Mahathir's specialty, in times of duress.) Main target Anwar and Raja Petra. Strongest weapon, Islam and condemnation of leaders for Raja Petra. Threat of national security and financial security for Anwar. This factory does not seem to run out of product lines! But for how long!
The scheming Najib, with suggestions from the evil, Mahathir, also need to ensure that if everything else fails, his only recourse is time, which is falling short. His back-benchers club must be sent out to an unknown nation to study new techniques of producing newer products, which they need badly, as the product lines needed to be improved constantly with changing taste and time.
10th September 2008 – Anwar's legal team was taken by surprise, not knowing that the prosecutors planned to transfer the case to high court. The case was fixed for 24th September. Hearing completed. Judgment from Justice Komathy on 7th October 2008., in favour of Anwar. The case will remain in the lower court.
But on this same date 10th September. Muhyiddin made an announcement that Mahathir is interested in joining Umno, and the evil Mahathir made the same announcement. They always make "good" announcements in Malaysia to distract Malaysians from their crooked plots! This is a part of their grand strategy, protecting Najib, as otherwise Abdullah would not be happy. The crooked Najib must always be seen as neutral in these criminals' grand plan. Abdullah is a sacrificial cow in Najib's hand, when comes to implementations of tougher actions. He is a scapegoat used by Khairy for monetary issues of the government. A sleepy head Prime minister. Always dream big but poor in implementing all that he wants. A crook with his own boundary! A flip-flop man with a flip-flop team! All he needs, comforts and luxuries with no work done.
11th September 2008 – This is the most important date of the evil calendar. How many of the evils have met up, we don't know. Probably 5 to 7. We can tell you there are police, law and order, and BN leaders. We are not naming them, we are not certain completely.
1) To create confusion, instigating racist sentiments amongst people so that Anwar's agenda of taking over the government will not materialize. Any pea-sized brain will tell you; this is the specialization area of Khir Toyo! What a gift in waiting with Kelana Jaya gathering around the corner! Did he attend the meeting?
2) To arrest Raja Petra and detain him for good under ISA. Any pea-sized brain will tell you; this is a moment of opportune for Syed Hamid who is yet to reply to Raja Petra's letter seeking indemnities. (Raja Petra's letter was sent on 9th Sept, with ultimatum for action by 12th Sept). Did he attend the meeting?
3) To detain Teresa Kok, Sin Chew reporter (last minute added in, because Ahmad Ismail camp was not happy that he alone was punished) under ISA. This is their style. The government of the day can be run even by racist crooks, if their power base seems threatened in any way! These arrests are needed to create confusions and anger so that the public can take to the streets. Easing the way for interested parties to clamp down the country with an emergency rule! Any pea-sized brain will tell you, if all the arms of government are working together, they must have the yes man, Ismail Omar, to tag along. Did he attend the meeting!
4) To arrest Anwar Ibrahim under ISA. The original date of his arrest planned immediately after Raja Petra's arrest and before the Kelana Jaya gathering. If this does not work, then Khir Toyo specialist in monkey tricks can carry on with his act in the KL streets and if he fails there is a big circus waiting for him at Kelana Jaya! But to arrest Anwar, they have to face the condemnation of international communities. Were they prepared for it? Arrest they must! Any pea-sized brain can tell you that to arrest Anwar Ibrahim; you need the go-ahead from the two top men! Did Abdullah and Najib attend the meeting?
Raja Petra was arrested as planned on the 12th September, together with the other two. Huge outcries from the people and opposition leaders followed. Sin Chew reporter was released the next day, after a flip-flop announcement by Syed Hamid! The followers of orders normally are not experts in covering their tracts! Anwar must be arrested at all cost. More cries from the people and opposition leaders followed, including from their own camp, probably these off mould products do not conform to their "stringent" standards! The criminals plan backfired. Khir Toyo's plans too never succeeded! Huge outcries from the people but no one took the street! Khir began to know for the first time in his life, the other side of people's power! The pale face of him shows! BN leadership headed by Najib deputized by Abdullah (this is how the world perceive), feared for the first time. Mahathir too, we were told, true to his crocodile fashion, sheepishly condemned the ISA. What a splendid act! The evil engineer who brutalized the nation for 22 years suddenly realized ISA is cruel! What he did no tell, he has seen and thought worst than that. His twisted-leftist-Mugabe brain constantly churning and scheming evils non-stop, suddenly ran short of "ideas"!
The arrest of Anwar was called off just for a while, while these two "geniuses" paused for a moment, with their MPs having learnt much in Taiwan, planning to study casinos in Macao!
The change of government that was announced by Anwar never took place on 16th. September 2008.
This is the pause the criminals needed for a moment to focus on the removal of Abdullah. This is the reason why the criminals have spared Anwar for a moment.
But Raja Petra must always remain under detention. If Raja Petra is released, then he will destroy all their evil plans. The criminals know this well.
17th September 2008 – Najib became the Finance Minister. Is Abdullah so kind to switch the portfolio or Najib was taking instruction to take over the finance ministry. Muhyiddin on the other hand, under instruction from evil Mahathir, to press Abdullah to bring forward Badawi's stepping down date. Which Abdullah did, and announced he will step down in March. This announcement was made recently.Are we fools to believe that Raja Petra's case was adjourned for a long period of time until November 12, because the trial judge was too sick? Or Raja Petra must be kept away for a long period of time, for other "valid" reasons. But he must be kept away, like it or not! He is too dangerous when he is outside!
We will not comment on any event after 20th September, as a new set of events are unfolding. We are keeping track closely. Suffice to say at this time that Mukhriz will lose the election of Youth leader because Mahathir said so! If Mahathir says, then it is always true!
It is only Mahathir and Najib who know, the next game plan! Maybe there are others involved too in this scheme designed by the master conspiraAs long as the government is prepared to sign blank checks, the Malays may call themselves supreme but they'll always be counted among the the dismal progress of their ethnic group. 30% is not a big deal and I don't think any Chinese Malaysian begrudge them of that. And if those who have benefited from the NEP have been responsible citizens and go on to grow and multiply as all good stewards should, they would not The problem with all our Malay supremacist politicians is that they're too dumb to understand the reason for only have met the 30% target. They would have far exceeded it. Instead, the BN government and its kind give them a blank check. I don't need to be a Malay, but if I have an endless supply of blank checks, I'd be quite happy to splurge several millions on sheer indulgence. Why should I work my butt off when I can play in the world's playground of the rich?
The And it's not surprising that the author thinks some kind of dictatorship is good for Malaysia. We've had 22 years of Mahathir. We should not have to go through the same nightmare again. Yes we did grow, but it's all physical, and fleeting. We have failed to develop our most precious assets – human capital – which took flight and are still taking flight – perhaps more vigorously than cash belonging to foreign investors.
Brave ones with CONSCIENCE and INTERGRITY display their individuality and independence of spirit and mind. They CANNOT BE SUBDUED with intimidation and threats .SYABAS to Zaid and Yong for their open support of PKR AND PKATAN by their presence.
Saiful's complaint was challenged when a medical examination – done on the same day he lodged the police report – allegedly found no signs of sodomy.
He then swore on a Quran in a mosque to back his claim, but the shadow of political interference fell over this as well. The imam who witnessed the oath-taking said he was instructed to do so.
WHAT'S NEXT: The sodomy trial has not made much headway since August, as technical arguments have prevailed. The court is expected to hear the substantial arguments in the coming year.
Clash of the titans
Wouldn't something be amiss in Malaysian politics if the nation's top two leaders aren't pitted against one another? The year did not disappoint in this respect.
BN's disastrous showing in the March general election brought out a metaphorical keris in Umno – this time the business end of it was pointed at party president and premier Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
Initially, it was unclear who was holding the dagger, given the groundswell of discontent over the coalition's 'gift' to the opposition – four state governments, failure to re-take Kelantan and voters' rejection of many veteran leaders.
Although 'undur Pak Lah' messages appeared on banners in public, Abdullah's decimated team backed his leadership. Former party head Dr Mahathir Mohamad merely intensified the noisy bombardment from the sidelines.
Abdullah came undone when the economy came under pressure due mainly to the spike in global crude oil price and the US credit crunch. There was no hiding the resentment now.
Adding to the panic, PKR's Anwar Ibrahim drummed up his claim of being able to take over the federal government by Sept 16. With Umno due to hold elections in December, the tussle at the top fed into the bickering at the bottom.
Abdullah finally reacted, swapping his finance portfolio for Najib's defence portfolio and holding out the lure of direct transition to his deputy. It might have worked except that Umno vice-president and senior minister Muhyiddin Yassin took exception to the cosy arrangement.
On Sept 21, at the Umno supreme council meeting, Abdullah was confronted by the very leaders who had supported him. They pushed him to state by Oct 9 if he planned to contest the polls, before the nomination process began.
In what appears to be a face-saving move, although Abdullah claimed that it was done to prevent the rift from widening, a compromise was struck with Najib.
Polls were moved to March and Abdullah agreed to relinquish the presidency – by convention, also the premiership – to Najib if the latter had enough support in the party. Najib took the post uncontested, with 98 percent of the nominations.
WHAT'S NEXT: There is trepidation about a return to the dark days of 'Mahathirism' under Najib's tenure, alongside talk that the out-manoeuvred Anwar is only biding his time to let the latter's skeletons out of the closet. Muhyiddin's moves merit a close watch as well.
Anwar completes his comeback
The Aug 26 Permatang Pauh by-election was called after incumbent Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail of PKR vacated the parliamentary seat, so that her husband Anwar Ibrahim could return to active politics.
Dubbed as the 'mother of all by-elections', it was held at a time of intense speculation about a takeover of the federal government by Pakatan Rakyat through defections from ruling lawmakers.
The contest was hyped by PKR as Anwar's 'road to Putrajaya', possibly as a morale booster for more BN parliamentarians to cross over to the opposition alliance.
Anwar had held the seat from 1982 but was unable to contest the 1999, 2004 and 2008 general elections due to his conviction for corrupt practice and subsequent five-year ban on participation in active politics. The prohibition was lifted in April this year.
During the 10-day campaign, BN played up the sodomy allegation against Anwar but PKR pulled out its trump card at the eleventh hour when an imam admitted that he was instructed to witness an oath-taking ceremony by accuser Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
The campaign saw money pouring into the constituency from both BN and PKR.
Anwar made a triumphant return with a bigger majority of 15,671 over his rivals – BN's Arif Shah Omar Shah and Akim president Hanafi Hamat – and was sworn in as Opposition Leader in Parliament.
Public whipping for BN
When Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced the dissolution of the Parliament on Feb 13, many BN politicians thought that the 12th general election would see the ruling coalition retaining its two-thirds majority in Parliament.
However, Malaysians decided otherwise on March 8 after a 13-day campaign, and deprived BN of its majority in the House. The opposition won 82 out of 222 parliamentary seats, with an all-time high of 31 seats for PKR, 28 for DAP and 22 for PAS.
Equally devastating for them was that opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat won four states and retained Kelantan – all of it contributing to BN's worst results in electoral history.
BN partners MCA, Gerakan, MIC and PPP all suffered heavy defeats, with casualties including their national leaders. Umno, which had claimed that it could win enough seats to form the federal government on its own, only won 79 seats, falling way below its projection.
Voters dealt the telling blow because of issues such as inflation, shortage of goods, fuel subsidies, rising crime, mismanagement, corruption, tainted elections and racial inequality.
Simmering anger among Indian Malaysians – long regarded as BN loyalists – resulted in a swing towards the opposition.
WHAT'S NEXT: PM-NAJIB Abdul Razak can expect a torrid time as he faces not just political turmoil but economic uncertainty – not to mention a waiting Anwar Ibrahim.
Oh, I nearly forgot. I also vaguely remember that the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said that four witnesses are required before anybody is indicted for any crime. Moreover, I don't recall trial by state-controlled media as being accepted in any hadith. So, whence comes your wisdom to accuse and judge the leader of PKR, Ezam?
Now, let's talk a little bit about the judicial process that Ezam mentioned. What did he say? He insinuated that when someone makes applications that happen to delay the commencement of a trial, that person is most probably guilty of the charge.
Erm, did he selectively forget that it was the prosecution who first delayed the hearing by insisting on having the case transferred to the High Court. As far as I know, the most senior judge in the Sessions Court is a very good and credible judge. Is the AG saying that a member of the legal and judicial service who was most probably promoted by himself not fit to hear such a case?
This does not make any sense especially when the AG indicates that there is strong evidence of the crime. Indeed, if the evidence is so strong, it must be irrefutable by any reasonable layperson. Then, why is the prosecution so reluctant to share the documentary evidence with the defence when it is clearly required by law to do so? I'm no genius but it looks like the prosecution is the one guilty of delaying the hearing of the case!
Coming back to the Port Klang Adun, if I am not mistaken, he resigned because he knew he was going to be sacked by PKR. Everybody knew that he was neglecting his constituency and that he was cavorting with Umno people. I heard PKR made many attempts to set him on the right track (some would say "the straight path") but he seemed to enjoy drinking, karaoke sessions and whatnot more than servicing his constituents and legislating in the state assembly. Now that Ezam has openly defended the Port Klang Adun, I wonder if this is a case of birds of a feather flocking together …. I pity the Port Klang Adun for picking such people as buddies.
Come on, Ezam. We all know you felt left out and didn't get the attention you thought you deserved despite being such a good boy compared to some other people in the PKR. I don't know much about what transpired when you resigned but I also heard from an old mutual friend that you had planned all along to undermine PKR and the youth wing. Indeed, the same friend already predicted you would set up an NGO to expose so-called corruption.
If you really are a reformasi warrior who's worth our attention, and if you had real doubts about your leader, not to mention if you really want to pursue the cause of justice through PKR (which you are now asking the president to make as her top priority), then you should have stayed and contested for a top leadership position and show your comrades what evidence you said you had.
Speaking of which, I think your so-called efforts to expose corruption are lame, and mediocre at best. Despite being the assistant or secretary of the former deputy prime minister, you don't seem to have anything substantial in the six boxes you keep mentioning. Are you sure you didn't mistakenly pick up FedEx boxes left behind by the courier?
I recall hearing your speech at the Permatang Pauh by-election last year where you revealed a supposedly damaging letter from the former DPM to a former prime minister of Malaysia. You know what you succeeded in doing in that speech?
NOT A TIME TO LOSE THE MARCH 8 SPIRIT
You showed people how good you were at marketing — all the banners and handbills, convincing people that you had in your possession a letter from the PKR candidate that proved how treacherous he is was a masterstroke.
Alas, your revelation merely showed that the PKR candidate was very concerned for his family and still harboured hopes that the former PM in question was a gentleman and will not harm the former's family.

UMNO Gays and bigots mahathir's azizan AND NAJIB'S SAIFOOL
This question actually makes me remember of the Oscar nominated movie 'Milk'. In one scene Harvey Milk challenges his competetor for a public debate, and during the debate he asks one question to the competetor that ' How can you teach somebody homosexuality, Is it like French?'
My word, Ezam, if you can't even decipher such a simple and straightforward letter, then you are indeed not fit to lead any organisation, much less the PKR youth and Gerak. And I think the immediate former prime minister was an even bigger fool to take you into Umno.
Lastly, Ezam, you must be wondering who I am. Well, frankly, who I am does not matter. What really matters is you and your family. If indeed you believe that Islam is the way and that Allah is the Compassionate and the Merciful, and that He will redeem your soul, then I suggest you seriously reflect on what you have done. Put your hand on your heart and ask yourself whether you are actually on the straight path. Above all else, be honest with yourself. And whether you like it or not—or believe it or not—God exists and He knows.
And why does Abdullah want so much for the police to charge Anwar? Simple:
because his Deputy, Najib Tun Razak, would invariably get dragged into this
