Making Money While They Still Can

The blood, sweat and tears shed to get the UNESCO Heritage Site status for Pulau Pinang will soon go to waste
On 7 July 2008, four months after DAP’s coming into power in Pulau Pinang, the old part of its capital Georgetown was declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.

Georgetown, alongside Melaka, were chosen on that day because both demonstrate a succession of historical and cultural influences arising from their former function as trading ports linking East and West.

These are the most complete surviving historic city centres on the Straits of Malacca with a multi-cultural living heritage originating from the trade routes from Great Britain and Europe through the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and the Malay Archipelago to China.

Both are living testimony to the multi-cultural heritage and tradition of Asia, and European colonial influences. This multi-cultural tangible and intangible heritage is expressed in the great variety of religious buildings of different faiths, ethnic quarters, the many languages, worship and religious festivals, dances, costumes, art and music, food, and daily life.

But after nine years, Georgetown will soon lose it all. In 1966 the Alliance government of Pulau Pinang introduced the Control of Rent Act (CRA) to help original tenants in the inner-city area have the rights to enjoy low rental rates for housing, allowing them to continuously reside and practice their trades in the area. The Act was repealed and this led to a drastic increase in rent.

This has led to the gentrification of not only Georgetown, but also the rest of the island side of Pulau Pinang that have chased away those who can no longer afford to live on the island – the poorer Chinese, the Malays and also the Indians, who were the real reason UNESCO granted the status upon Georgetown.

The gentrification of Pulau Pinang has led to the poorer people to move out and settle elsewhere. Those who cannot afford to move out continue to live in Georgetown on God’s good humour

Without the RCA, Tokong’s DAP government is no longer restricted to raise the market price of land within the heritage site and this has led to the redevelopment of areas within the site and selling them to foreigners.

The Tokong does not care for Georgetown’s heritage sites, and this is evident in his attitude towards the preservation of the Sia Boey. The sooner he could sell that piece of land off, the more money is made.

This “don’t-care” attitude of Tokong’s is just like his Underwater Tunnel Project. The reclamation works for the project has gone full swing, yet the feasibility study for it has yet to be submitted.

How is it possible that works can start before a feasibility study is submitted?

The RM305 million study, which Pulau Pinang taxpayers paid for some time back, is still not completed. It was back in March this year that the Tokong said it was 87 percent complete.

It has been six months since the study’s completion was at 87 percent

Today, more than six months later, Tokong still has not submitted the feasibility study to the Ministry of Works.

18 months to do a report? Another six months and I could have completed a Masters in something

Tokong will continue to give all sorts of stupid excuses for not being able to submit the report and stretch this until after the next general election if at all possible.

All we know is that while he is busy giving excuses, there would be more land within the heritage site that would be sold.

The clock is ticking, however Tokong knows how to buy more time to be able to make more money by getting rid of the UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

One Jilake

Perjuangan pembangkang terutamanya DAP yang mengagungkan tokoh-tokoh Parti Komunis Malaya telah berjalan lebih 12 tahun dengan Ronnie Liu mula-mula sekali mendesak agar Chin Peng dibenarkan masuk ke Malaysia.

Pada 2011, bekas ahli PAS yang dulum kini dan selamanya pesuruh DAP, Mat Sabu, telah berusaha memesongkan rakyat dengan menyintik dakyah DAP dan komunisme bahawa Mat Indera, pengkhianat komunis yang telah mengepalai 180 pengganas komunis menyerang 18 orang anggota polis di Balai Polis Bukit Kepong, adalah seorang pejuang kemerdekaan.

Selama dua penggal berturut-turut kita telah saksikan bagaimana wakil-wakil rakyat DAP telah mengingkari perintah tatacara berpakaian persidangan Parlimen mahupun DUN dan bersikap biadap terhadap Raja-Raja Melayu.  Bagi mereka ini, Raja-Raja Melayu bukan raja mereka kerana raja nenek moyang mereka yang terakhir ialah Maharaja Pu Yi.

Kalau ditanya kini, mungkin jawapannya ialah “Tak tau! Saya mudah lupa!”

DAP terutamanya, giat mempersoalkan kedudukan Raja-Raja Melayu serta adat istiadat orang Melayu dan agama Islam dalam Perlembagaan di samping menghasut anak muda yang buta sejarah agar mereka juga mempersoalkan ketidak seimbangan keistimewaan kaum dalam Perlembagaan.  Rakan baik mereka Muhyiddin Yassin juga pernah menegur sikap DAP yang anti-Raja.

Maka tidak hairanlah jika pihak pembangkang, terutamanya DAP, cuba mendorong pemikiran anak-anak muda untuk menjadikan negara ini sebuah republik, bebas dari sebarang pengaruh feudalisme.

One step closer but nobody is watching

Hari ini, Tokong Lim Guan Eng telah mengambil penceramah katak yang terkenal dengan sifat anti-Raja, Wan Ji Wan Hussin, yang pernah ditahan dan di dakwa di bawah Akta Hasutan, 1948 kerana menghina institusi Raja-Raja Melayu.

Dengan Wan Ji menjadi balaci Tokong untuk menggunakan agama sebagai alat untuk menghasut orang Melayu agar menyokong dan mendokong hasrat DAP, maka pergerakan DAP ke arah menjadikan Malaysia ini ‘bebas-Raja’ menjadi semakin hampir.  Sekiranya anda telah lupa apa yang Wan Ji perjuangkan, sila tonton video ini:

 

Pulau Pinang Values Life At RM400 Only

The video above by Fahmi Hamid on the devastation caused by the recent foods in the Farlim area of Pulau Pinang is proof of Tokong Lim Guan Eng’s failure to keep his promise to rid the island-state of its floods problems within the first term of his administration.

Last year the DAP-led government blamed the Federal Government for the floods

Over-development, excessive hill-clearing activities have long been identified as the culprit of the never-ending flash floods in Pulau Pinang.  As a person who lived on the island for three years, I can vouch that compared to what the flash floods of the late 1980s and early 1990s looked like, the flash floods of recent years are of biblical proportions.

Yet, as seen in the above and following screenshots, the DAP-led government consistently blames others for its failures.  Last year, Jagdeep Singh Deo blamed the Federal Government for failing to cough up RM321 million in allocations for a flood mitigation project.

However, it has been revealed that the Tokong had pleaded ignorance of a reprimand by the Auditor-General in the 2016 report tabled in July 2017 that the Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai had not dispensed its RM22.09 million drainage contribution to the state’s Department of Irrigation and Drainage.

How can the DAP government led by Tokong claim to be efficient when it doesn’t even know that there is a Auditor-General report that has reprimanded it?

That is how efficient the DAP-led Pulau Pinang state government that the voters had voted in to see change.  They don’t read reports, they don’t even make an attempt to fulfill promises, and conveniently blame others.

Yet they got voted in again for the second term because people in Pulau Pinang love the free water the Tokong is providing them from time to time, not to mention achieving the higher than the national average cancer cases in Sungai Lembu alone.  Penang-lang love records and achievements.

RM2 billion had been given to Pulau Pinang between 2006 and 2010 for flood mitigation projects, a four-year period which half of it was under the DAP administration.

Zainal Abidin Osman (BN-Pulau Pinang) said that RM1.493 billion had already been allocated

DAP Pulau Pinang Exco Chow Kow Yeow said that only RM305 million had been received by the state government.  However, the Tokong admitted that it could be due to his state government’s inaction over the Auditor-General’s report that had caused the funds to be withheld.

Tokong admitted the failure of his state government to act on the Auditor-General’s report

The failure of the DAP-led state government of Pulau Pinang under Lim Guan Eng’s leadership has caused untold losses that can never be recouped.  The DAP state government could pay RM177.5 million to a consultant for a paper that is far from being completed but cannot fork out the same amount to mitigate floods in Pulau Pinang.

This year alone two major flash floods have caused misery to thousands including the loss of two lives since July 2017.

On 14 July 2017, Lim Kean Chuan, 59, drowned when he fell into a monsoon drain during the flash floods at Jalan Sungai Ara.

Kean Chuan had parked his car by the roadside to walk to higher ground after being inundated by the flood waters. He, however, fell into the monsoon drain as the high water levels obstructed the drain’s opening from view.

In last week’s flash floods, Noor Afidah Yahunas, 30, fell from her motorcycle into a culvert in Paya Terubong, and was found caught between tree branches by rescuers in a river near Bukit Jambul, 1.5 kilometers away from where she fell nearly 24 hours after she was reported missing.

Yet, the Tokong had announced, on 15 November 2016, a state budget allocation of RM220 million for 2017, independent of the Federal allocation, for the mitigation of floods.  The question is, what has happened to this RM220 million?  Since 2017 is almost over, whose pocket has it gone into?

Penang-lang should be questioning the Tokong and Chow Kow Yeow on this missing allocation

And to make Pulau Pinang people affected by the floods happy again, the Tokong will give them RM400 as a one-off payment for their miseries.

RM400 for your misery, and for that one life lost because of the incompetency of the DAP-led government

And I am sure with the RM400 payment, people in Pulau Pinang will forgive the Tokong for his incompetency, jump with joy, forget the destroyed electronics inside their car, ignore the deaths caused, and vote for DAP once again.

That is how much the DAP values your life, dear Pulau Pinang voters.  Only RM400.

DAP Caught Lying Again – Part 2

Hot on the DAP heels again after catching them with their pants down lying about the tunnel consultancy fees. Now, we go back to the question of the validity of the CEC.

The DAP’s illegal CEC knew since April 2013 that they were appointed illegally according to their own party constitution and could therefore not be recognised by the Registrar of Societies.  Here is a copy of the letter from the RoS to the Tokong.

The RoS expresses its dissatisfaction with the manner the CEC was appointed

In Paragraph 2, the RoS had already stated its reason for believing that the CEC cannot be recognised by the DAP as the manner in which the members were elected to the CEC contravened Clause X Item 1 of the DAP constitution. This is because the CEC included Vincent Wu who, according to the announcement made by the DAP on the 4 January 2013, was not eligible to become a member.

Meeting notice was not sent within the 10 weeks period before the meeting was scheduled to be held

In Paragraph 2.2 it is also mentioned that members complained about not receiving the notice of meeting TEN weeks before the party’s national congress was held as required by Clause VIII Item 9 of the DAP constitution.  This resulted in 753 delegates having their right to attend the congress denied by the party’s manahement, and denied their right to vote for the 20 CEC members.

Notices should be given to delegates according to the DAP constitution

The RoS stated in Paragraph 3.2 that the notice to the branch secretaries should have adhered to Clause VIII Item 6, while notice to the delegates should have adhered to Clause VIII Item 9 of the DAP constitution before the 15 December 2012 national congress.  Therefore, in order for the RoS to recognise the legitimacy both Clauses mentioned would have to be fully complied with before a fresh congress and election could be held.

A stern reminder from the RoS

In the last paragraph, the DAP was given a stern reminder by the RoS to comply with all the requirements of the RoS which were based on the DAP’s own party constitution, failing which the RoS could take action to de-register the party as provided for via Section 13 of the Societies Act, 1966.  In waiting for compliance, the RoS refused to recognise the legitimacy of the CEC formed after the 15 December 2012 national congress.

And what has the DAP done to comply with its own party constitution as required by the RoS since then?

Absolutey nothing.

DAP members should put the blame on only the Tokong and his brutes in the CEC that is not only illegal, but also a farce and a sham.

Downwards Accelerating Party – Part 2

There is nothing democratic about the Democratic Action Party (DAP).

Before the results of the party’s election on 15 December 2012 got changed because Microsoft Excel did not give the DAP a good version of the software, the Top 20 results were as follows:

  1. Lim Kit Siang – 1,607 votes
  2. Lim Guan Eng – 1,576 votes
  3. Karpal Singh – 1,411 votes
  4. Anthony Loke – 1,202 votes
  5. Vincent Wu – 1,202 votes
  6. Tan Kok Wai – 1.199 votes
  7. Gobindh Sing Deo – 1,197 votes
  8. Tony Pua – 1,162 votes
  9. Teng Chang Khim – 1,152 votes
  10. Fong Kui Lun – 1,137 votes
  11. Nga Kor Ming – 1,075 votes
  12. Chong Chieng Jen – 1,011 votes
  13. Chong Eng – 1,006 votes
  14. Chow Kon Yeow – 985 votes
  15. M Kulasegaran – 984 votes
  16. Liew Chin Tong – 984 votes
  17. Dr Boo Cheng Hau – 958 votes
  18. Teresa Kok – 925 votes
  19. Teo Nie Cheng – 903 votes
  20. Ngeh Koo Ham – 824 votes

I made note of the results as they came out and quickly blogged about it.  Christopher Ross Lim, the Chinaman who goes by the Malay name Zairil Khir Johari could only muster 305 votes despite being Tokong’s closest lieutenant.

19 days later, blaming Microsoft Excel, a whole new result was published.  You can see how the spreadsheet format looked different than it did the first round at the DAP’s website. Let us take a look at the results that was endorsed by Emperor Lim Kit Siang and his son the Tokong:

The Top 20 who made it into the CEC. Compare this with the list above

You can see that Christopher Ross Lim, who only managed to get 305 votes, suddenly received 803 votes and made it as an “elected” member of the CEC.  Vincent Wu disappeared from the Top 20 list.  Guess who was at Number 21 and just one vote down?

The Emperor’s Archnemesis, Tan Seng Giaw, was at No.21 and was effectively out of the CEC despite being very popular in the DAP

This prompted two DAP life-members, David Dass Aseerpatham and Mahendran Krishnan, vice-chairman and secretary of the party’s Ladang Paroi branch respectively, to lodge a report against the DAP at the ROS.

The ROS has since rejected the results asking the DAP to provide proof that there was indeed a glitch in the software.  ROS deems the current CEC members as well as those holding positions in the DAP as invalid and has instructed the DAP to hold fresh CEC re-elections.

The Emperor Does not think that he and his team can win without cheating

This has prompted Emperor Lim Kit Siang to hit out at the ROS citing the directive given as ‘most ridiculous.’  Are the Emperor’s balls shrinking now that he knows his team cannot win without cheating?  Is he afraid that the diminishing popularity and increasingly dictatorial son will influence the CEC re-elections?  You can read here how the Emperor cheated in the CEC elections to win.

The DAP will be holding a meeting tomorrow (Saturday 8 July 2017) to discuss the ROS directive.  It is widely believed that the DAP will be challenging the ROS’s directive in court in order to be able to contest in the next general elections.  This is because the Red Bean Army has now begun to play on the issue of the Judiciary after the appointments of the Chief Justice and the President of the Court of Appeal as additional judges of the Federal Court.

Chief Justice, Tan Sri Dato Seri Md Raus bin Sharif has been appointed as an additional judge of the Federal Court

The DAP will definitely use ‘questionable impartiality’ of the Judiciary in case the court decides in favour of the ROS later.

But that is all DAP’s game.  And this game can end with the resignation of both Emperor Lim Kit Siang and Tokong Lim Guan Eng who has been charged in a court of law for abusing his office to conduct corrupt practices.

Only then can the DAP be saved, as envisioned by the Emperor himself.

DAP’s Emperor Lim Kit Siang offers to reisgn in order to save the DAP

Meanwhile, former DAP leaders have frowned on the Emperor’s remarks.  Janice Lee, who is a former DAP state assemblyman for Teratai, said that Lim Kit Siang has to justify and explain to the public how this (irregularity) had happened and also answer issues raised by sacked DAP members.

This means that they don’t have the right to sack me because the CEC in that year was not valid,” she said.

Former DAP leaders say Lim Kit Siang owes an explanation on how the irregularity had occured

Former DAP life member Shamsher Singh Thind said that as a leader of a so-called democratic party, Kit Siang must ensure that party matters were dealt with transparency and integrity.

You must ensure people can see that you have done everything by the book, which means you should hold a re-election to sort this matter out once and for all,” he added.

Will the Emperor and his son Tokong resign now?

Dictators Asphyxiate Party

On 12 November 1933, even with the Nazi party as the sole political party contesting in a German parliamentary election seeking to endorse Hitler’s plan to remilitarise the Rhineland,  43,007,577 ballots were cast, of which 39,655,288, or 92.2 per cent, endorsed the list and 3,352,289, or 7.8 per cent were defective.  Hitler reacted badly and a directive by the Ministry of Propaganda to no longer keep track of spoiled ballots was issued.

Joseph Stalin used elections as part of his Great Purge of potential communist competitors.  More than 70 percent of factory committee members were replaced, 66 percent of the 94,000 factory committee chairmen, and 92 percent of the 30,723 members of the regional committee plenums.

The DAP conducted a party election that was rigged, blamed Microsoft Excel for the election woes, then blames everyone else but themselves over the party’s registration which is now in limbo as the Registrar of Societies is soon to decide on the fate of the party. But this is not new.  Even the Melaka DAP fiasco was blamed on UMNO.

DAP’s Emperor Lim Kit Siang offers to reisgn in order to save the DAP

In an attempt to hoodwink party members as well as the public, Emperor Lim Kit Siang offered to resign to “save the party from deregistration.”  It is just a ploy to divert attention from his and his son’s struggle to maintain their hold on the DAP.

A servant of the Lims who was planted in Johor, Teo Nie Cheng, even questioned the need for the ROS to meet up with Ahmad Zahid Hamidi before deciding on the fate of the DAP.  She knows very well that Zahid is not just a Deputy Prime Minister but also the Home Affairs Minister thus making the ROS reportable to him.  But in order to paint a negative picture and show that the ROS is an effete agency in case things go bad for the DAP, she purposely links the ROS to Zahid who can later be blamed for the DAP’s own arrogance.

Teo Nia Seng trying to lonk DAP’s arrogance to the BN

The DAP fiaso began with the December 2012 DAP party elections, where the numbers show that the Emperor only received 62.4 percent of total votes, while his son the Tokong received 1,576 votes out of 2,576, or only 61.2 percent of total votes.  In short, 1,000 delegates did not vote for Tokong.

Before the 2012 party elections the DAP had 31 Central Executive Committee members of which three were Indians, two Sikhs and two Malays.  During this election, all SEVEN Malay candidates lost.  I wrote SEVEN because although the media quoted EIGHT, Zairil Khir Johari IS NOT Malay.  His name is not Zairil bin Khir Johari, but Zairil Khir Johari bin Ablululah.

Zairil, or Christopher Ross Lim as his name was before Khir Johari married his mother in 1996 when he was seven or eight, only managed to secure 305 votes.

One of the Malay candidates, Zulkifli Mohd Noor from Pulau Pinang, who had tried for the past 25 years to get into the CEC,  received 216 votes.  He was clearly peeved:

When we say ‘Malaysian Malaysia,’ we must represent all religions, all races…balance. The message I conveyed did not reached the grassroots. They are still choosing leaders based on race,” he told Bernama.

He said that the election was also not based on ability and experience of the candidates in fighting for the party.

There is no change. The results is a setback for Malay candidates. Perhaps the top leaders who contested want to take care of their own interests, not the party’s interests.”

However, 19 days after the party elections the DAP announced that there had been a technical error in the vote tabulation and declared defeated candidate Zairil Khir Johari Abdullah as a duly elected member of the CEC.

This prompted two DAP life-members, David Dass Aseerpatham and Mahendran Krishnan, vice-chairman and secretary of the party’s Ladang Paroi branch respectively, to lodge a report against the DAP at the ROS.

The investigation into the legality of the DAP CEC was as a result of reports by DAP members, not BN

“This is a clear case of election manipulation, and it is also against the democratic process and the party’s slogan of competency, accountability and transparency (CAT),” David Dass said.

Calls for a fresh CEC election made by members have gone totally ignored.  Members in Pulau Pinang and Seremban protested.  The ROS promptly launched an investigation into the allegations made and asked the DAP for its annual report to be submitted by 14 February 2013.

In April 2013, a month before the 13th General Elections, the DAP threatened the ROS and asked the latter to withdraw from investigating the DAP.  The ROS had asked DAP to present proof of its claim of mistake during vote counting at the Central Executive Committee (CEC) elections.

The Director-General,  Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman said this was to determine whether it was due to a computer glitch or cheating.

We are still investigating and one of the major issue is the votes received by candidates in the party elections,” Rahman said in a statement.

Furthermore,  the ROS stated in May 2013 that it had found 753 DAP members who were eligible to attend its national congress on 15 December 2012, did not receive notice.

DAP members who did not receive the notice were denied the right to vote and choose the leaders they wanted at the congress,” he said in a statement which also said the ROS would continue investigations on other issues raised by complainants, and go through all documents submitted before arriving at a decision on the validity of the congress based on the Societies Act 1966.

There were other illegal things that the DAP had done since then including removing the Kedah State DAP Committee headed by Lee Guan Aik in May 2013 and replacing them with members of the Lim’s choice including Zairil Ross Lim as the State’s committee interim Chairman.

My committee and I were removed because certain dynastic leaders did not want us to continue to lead Kedah DAP,” alleged Lee. “I was removed without any valid reason neither was I called to face any inquiry. I was removed in an undemocratic way.”

Lee Guan Aik was removed from his elected post undemocratically

This prompted Lee to also lodge a report with the ROS in July 2013 which in turn issued Lee an official letter in December that year duly recognising him as the Kedah DAP chairman.

Letter from the ROS confirming that Lee is still the DAP Chairman for Kedah

Those leaders in the centre are not bothered to resolve the leadership crisis in Kedah. They are running the Kedah DAP like a kongsi gelap (secret society) … there’s so much secrecy,” Lee said. “The DAP publicly portrays itself as a democratic party but in truth it is not.

This certainly does sound like how Joseph Stalin ran the Soviet Union’s Communist Party.  Pulau Pinang’s Joseph Lim Guan Eng has also been running Pulau Pinang like a dictator. Just ask Ang Kean Seang and Teh Yee Cheu.

It was not the first time that the DAP under the Emperor Lim Kit Siang had removed people not aligned with his dynastic rule.  In the 1990s the Emperor removed the likes of Goh Hock Guan who was the Selangor State DAP Chairman.  Others who were expelled included Dr Soarian, Chan Teck Chan, Seow Hun Khin, Chin Nyuk Soo and Goh Lin Eam.

Goh Hock Guan, in his letter to Cheng Man Hin, said,

“I don’t want to have any relationship with Lim Kit Siang. We’re totally adverse in terms of viewpoints and personality. As long as Kit Siang is holding the position as the Secretary-General of the DAP, he would definitely and finally destroy the future of DAP.”

Lee Lam Thye was made the Deputy Secretary-General but without power nor authority. Under Kit Siang’s orders, Lam Thye was not allowed to give views nor comments of any dissatisfaction. But he had an impeccable record of service to his constituency, and this threatened Kit Siang’s position.

On 29 September 1990, Lee Lam Thye dropped a bombshell announcing his departure from the DAP.  He said,

“A few leaders had hurt me from behind…I can’t stand anymore.”

After Lam Thye’s resignation, Lim Kit Siang issued a gag-order on the DAP ordering all party members to ‘shut-up’, avoiding giving any statement, view or statement through the media.

This is how the DAP under the Lims and their cohorts is being run now – as a society it is a dynastic triad; given the power to govern it would be just like Hitler’s Nazi party since it now shows how it equals to Joseph Stalin.

DAP’s only hope is now in Tan Seng Giaw, virtually the only politician who opposes constructively and professionally.  Hopefully sane party members will see this.

But as long as the computer used to count party ballots is operated by someone appointed by the Lims, DAP will continue to be a party which blood is sucked dry by the Lims and their henchmen, and will die of asphyxiation.

Dunce Accumulating Party – Part 2

Recently I wrote how the DAP is filled with morons and gave two examples.

Today,I shall give you another.

WakeUp Malaya calls Yeo Bee Yin the East Coast economic saboteur

DAP’s Yeo Bee Yin said no to the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) back in March 2017.  As a matter of fact, this one other dunce from the dungu party asked Selangor NOT to help out with the ECRL project when, as she said, it could be completed at almost half the price.

Those who voted her in are equal idiots or worse for letting themselves be duped by this slightly more intelligent moron.  This is because she compared the cost of constructing the ECRL to the project in Tanzania where the new line will be built next to the existing line, no greenfields, and that there are no tunnels to be constructed.   Being the typical drama queens, her Pakatan friends dubbed the ECRL the most expensive railway project in the world.

Brain Not Included

The first phase of the ECRL will run 600 kilometers of tracks, electrified, with 50 kilometers of tunneling.  The second phase will link the ECRL from the Gombak Intergrated Transport Terminal to Port Klang, a further 88 kilometers. The cost is estimated to be at RM55 billion (USD12.6 billion).  This translates into about RM80 million (USD18.4 million) per kilometer.

As a comparison, the Madrid-Volladoid line in Spain costs USD5.48 billion (RM24 billion) for a 177-kilometer distance which comes up to about USD30 million (RM130.4 million) per kilometre.

The Bremmer rail project in Switzerland cost USD6.56 billion (RM28.52 billion) for a 55 kilometer-line or RM518.55 million per km.

I don’t know how Yeo Bee Yin and friends could claim that the ECRL is the most expensive rail project.  Then again, they also fielded a calon hantu (phantom candidate) who is an Australian citizen as a candidate in last year’s Sarawak state elections.

On the benefits of the ECRL, I have written a post on that.

Suddenly, out of the blue, the ECRL is a meaningful project for the people of Selangor, said Yeo Bee Yin.  She said this when questioning why, if the ECRL is to be the land bridge connecting Kuantan port and Port Klang, is the ECRL terminating at the Gombak Intergrated Transport Terminal?

Again, brain not included

She said that a crucial part of the argument behind the need for the ECRL seems to have been taken “off the map” and then insinuating that the Barisan Nasional-led government is punishing the people of Selangor by terminating the project at the GITT.

It will give a lot of economical and social impact to the people of Selangor. Hence, the state government and Selangorians deserve to be better informed about the project,” she said.  “According to SPAD personnel, the ‘missing link’ from Gombak to Port Klang, which is at least another 60km, will be in the second phase of the project.”

She made this conclusion after viewing the public display of the ECRL at the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) headquarters where, according to her, only 16.7km of the Selangor portion appeared showing the route from Gombak into Pahang, but not the important segment that connects it to Port Klang.

She also asked if there was an agenda by the Federal government in leaving the Pakatan Harapan-led Selangor government from the decision-making process.

Which begets the question: Did the DAP-led Pulau Pinang state government include the Federal government when it decided to have a tunnel to link the island with Butterworth?  Isn’t that a state government project while the ECRL is a Federal government project?

Most of you would also by now ask why is the ECRL terminating at the GITT instead of at Port Klang?

Remember what I wrote above not too long ago, that the first phase terminates at the GITT while the second phase connects the GITT to Port Klang?

The answer appeared on the 13th May 2017:

The CCCC has signed an MoU with MRL for the construction of Phase 2 of the ECRL from the GITT to Port Klang

China Communications Construction Company Limited China (CCCC) has signed an MoU with Malaysia Railway Link Sdn Bhd (MRL) for a 88-kilometer rail link from the GITT to Port Klang.  This is one of the reasons the Prime Minister is in China.

Phase 2 will provide the vital connection to Port Klang. Ultimately, the ECRL underlines the importance of infrastructure to Malaysia and its people,” said Tan Sri Irwan Siregar, the Secretary-General of the Treasury who witnessed the signing ceremony. “Once completed, the people in the east coast of Peninsula Malaysia will be connected to the central region and west coast with important stops such as industrial hubs, airports and tourism zones located along the way.”

I would like to remind Yeo Bee Yin to leave the matter for the professionals to handle.  Just look into simpler matters such as why are her voters double and triple parking their vehicles at Damansara Uptown.  She has been the ADUN for that area for almost one term and yet she can’t teach her voters manners and solve the traffic woes there.

Or if she wants to look smart, she should ask Tokong about the RM305 million study that has yet to be submited to the Works Ministry.

Terima Kasih, Lim Kit Siang

My wife knows how I often thank people – be it a hotel cleaner, the toll booth operator manning the TouchNGo reload booth, the waiter at some stall.

This time I would like to thank Lim Kit Siang for being the proud politician that he has alwas been – the self-glorification by a man who thinks very greatly of himself, his works, his speeches, his essays; that he shares all these with us online that it feels like you are walking through a Presidential library of a man never destined to preside over or administer a country.

And it all began with Lim Kit Siang’s admission of willingness to work with the Barisan Nasional. One would wonder what has made this proud man discard his pride to go back on his struggles just to remain relevant?

It does sound like U-Turn Mahathir and I dare say it also partly has to do with trying to save his son from an imminent prison sentence for corrupt practices while being a Chief Minister.


The other part, in my opinion, is because of the recent revelation of CIA documents linking U-Turn Mahathir to the Bumiputera Malaysia Finance scandal of 1983 that saw billions of Ringgits missing and resulted in the death of a senior bank auditor for knowing too much, and the suicide committed by the Carrian Group’s adviser.



It was during U-Turn Mahathir’s watch, two years into his stewardship, that Bank Bumiputera which was a government-owned bank formed with the purpose of assisting unfortunate Bumiputeras lost that huge sum of money.

And according to the CIA document it was impossible for Mahathir’s cabinet to not know anything about the outflow of such a huge amount of money in the form of loans given to a non-Bumiputera associate of his in Hong Kong.

Mahathir, like in the PKFZ hearing, has denied any knowledge of the missing money.

For those born in the mid-1970s and have no recollection whatsoever of the BMF scandal can watch this awesome documentary which has none other than the self-admiring Lim Kit Siang talking about the scandal.


Unfortunate for Kit Siang, he cannot claim ignorance of what he had said about the scandal be it on camera or online.


Like I said, Kit Siang is so proud of himself, his works, speeches etc., that he shares them all with us online. And there are about ten posts related to the BMF scandal itself.

Among the more interesting posts is one titled ‘DAP reiterates call for Royal Commission of Inquiry into the $2.5 billion BMF Scandal after $8 billion suit against BBMB in California Federal Court.’


That article dated 29th February 1992 has an interesting ending where Kit Siang asked the following:

“If the Government leaders have nothing to hide, why is the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamed, and the present Cabinet so adamant in refusing to commissioning a full public inquiry into the BMF scandal?”

I would like to know too! Why?

And I would also like to know if Kit Siang now knows that with the CIA exposé there is absolutely no way that he could work with Mahathir, deny ever knowing about the BMF scandal, and sacrifice the MP allowances that is helping him with sustaining his lifestyle in the next general elections?

This is one lump of dirt that even Kit Siang cannot sweep underneath his carpet. He knows that if he continues to work with U-Turn Mahathir, his political career would be as dead as a Dodo.

So he makes a U-turn and decides to work with the Barisan Nasional to rid the country of the biggest kleptomaniac of all – U-Turn Mahathir s/o Mohamad.

Thank you again Lim Kit Siang, for the reading material. You really made my day.

Mahathir Kampf

The above was taken from Mahathir’s latest blog posting entitled ‘Propaganda.’  In this posting he likens Najib Razak to being a Nazi with pro-Najib bloggers such as BigDog and Rocky Bru, former staunch supporters of his, as being the Little Goebbels for Najib Razak.  Whatever label that you wish to put on BigDog, I know for one thing his loyalty, other than to the nation, is to the Malays and the Malay cause.  Like me, the straw that broke the ‘sympathy-for-Mahathir‘ camel’s back was when Mahathir joined the BERSIH protest last year, licking his own gob as he backtracked on his own words to not work with the opposition and condemn street demonstrations.

Attacking the bloggers,if the defence of Najib Razak or attacks on behalf of him is not working, is not wise at all.  It goes to show that the likes of BigDog and Rocky are in fact making an impact on Mahathir’s struggle to oust the Premier.  Likening Najib Razak to a Nazi while he is in Germany is not prudent at all.  It shows how insensitive Mahathir is and a lack of decorum on his part.  Then again, when has Mahathir ever showed to possess any sense of decorum at all, if any?

However, history has proven that there is someone with a racist and anti-semitic traits amongst us. Mahathir Mohamed is his name.  So many things that he had said even before his premiership that points to these traits.  Then again, what is Mahathir without his acid tongue?

First and foremost according to this blog, Mahathir s/o Iskandar Kutty is ashamed of his heritage.  In fact, Philip Bowring who was an Editor for the Far Eastern Economic Review and a South China Morning Post columnist once wrote:

‘In his new book, A New Deal for Asia, he writes about his father in such a way as to imply that he was a Malay dedicated to the improvement of his fellow Malays rather than the hard-working Indian immigrant and government servant that he was. No mention of Dr Mahathir’s Indian Muslim background ever appears in the media. The subject is taboo.

And UMNO suffered for 22 years being the cover for Mahathir to hide his true identity while creating a Herrenvolk culture to underscore his superiority especially over the Indians.  In fact, he is now surrounded by people like him who could be termed as Ehrenarier, who are neither Malay but nor would they admit to who they really are.  In 1922, Hitler said in a conversation with Major Joseph Hell (Josef Hell, “Aufzeichnung,” 1922, ZS 640, p. 5, Institut für Zeitgeschichte) that when he has power, “the destruction of the Jews will be my first and most important job. As soon as I have power, I shall have gallows after gallows erected, for example, in Munich on the Marienplatz-as many of them as traffic allows. Then the Jews will be hanged one after another, and they will stay hanging until they stink.

Mahathir said something similar in 1979 about the Vietnamese boat people that was quoted by the Associated Press saying Malaysia would expel 75,540 boat people as well as “arm itself with legal powers to shoot new arrivals on sight.”

In October 2003, just before he left office, he made an anti-semitic remark in October 2003 that got played up by the Western media.  Malaysia is labeled anti-Semitic until today, no thank you to Mahathir.  While we are anti-Zionism, I doubt Malaysia is anti-Jew. One of my former bosses is a Jew who even contributed to a mosque for iftar during Ramadhan.

That is Mahathir being brash and abrasive for you…just so he could get somewhere.

I won’t write about how anti-Chinese Mahathir is.  He enriches a few Chinese businessmen so they would be indebted to him, but at the same time help him to keep the mass of Chinese crabs in a barrel firmly inside the barrel.  You can read more in his ultra-Malay book:

Mahathir’s Kampf

I read that when I found it in my father’s study room back in 1976. It made me worry when Mahathir replaced Hussein Onn as the Prime Minister in 1981.  Since then, the DAP Chinese have been using the excuse of being victimised by the Malays, in particular by UMNO.  Today, whenever the DAP creates racial tension and the Malays react, they would cry victimisation.

Who are we to blame? Erasing two decades of damage done to Malaysia by Mahathir is not easy.  The interracial resentment has set in deep and the outcome of the General Elections of 2008 was the direct result of that. The fact that his followers are still worshipping him for his past while turning a blind eye to his present role as a one-man demolition derby does not help either.  He had probably read ‘Mein Kampf‘ before writing ‘Malay Dilemma‘.  Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the Supreme Leader of Parti Pribumi was once referred to as HITLER.

Perhaps, we need a proper Entnazifizierung program for them.  But until then, Mahathir will just stand proudly while watching his band of Schutzstaffel march past him to do his bidding.

Heil Führer!
Heil Führer!

Press Statement by YB Zuraida on IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar

2 September 2014

The IGP has gone overboard with his latest arrest of the Penang Voluntary Patrol Unit (PPS). As IGP, he cannot simply declare any society as illegal and should go through proper procedures. Any society unregistered with the ROS must first be declared illegal by the ROS like Hindraf. There must also be proof that the society had tried to register with the ROS and was declined its registration.

The scenario for PPS is different. PPS is part of the Penang State Government body and comprises of the state exco members and state assemblymen.

The IGP should be aware that he is a public servant and that the public’s interest comes first. The police force should not be used as a means to oppress the public.

PPS had always been a voluntary unit to help the community in emergencies and disasters. If the PDRM had been efficient, there would be no need for volunteers to step up and help the police in their work. These volunteers sacrifice their family time just to make their neighbourhood a safer place to live in. Due to the community spirit and selflessness of these PPS members, crime rates in Penang have gone down.

PPS was set up many years ago. There is no reason why the IGP should suddenly and unjustly call it illegal and start to crackdown on these innocent volunteers when all along, these PPS members report to their respective neighbourhood police stations before patrolling the area. Threatening to raid the homes of these volunteers unless they surrender themselves to the police is also absurd and an abuse of power.

The IGP has shown very weak leadership.

In the case of Victor Wong and Nasrul, both who offended the IGP by describing him as Henrich Himmler and Anjing BN respectively, and subsequently being directed by the IGP that both be investigated by the Police Cyber Investigation Response Centre (PCIRC) shows a lack of tolerance for personal opinion. Even after Victor Wong tweeted an apology to the IGP and PDRM, Khalid is bent on taking action against the two under Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998 and Sedition Act 1948.

These heavy-handed clampdown on those in opposition towards the Federal Government is a repeat of Operasi Lalang.

The IGP should be reminded that the PDRM is not his personal army.

YB Zuraida Kamaruddin
Ahli Parlimen Ampang
Ketua Wanita Keadilan

I instantaneously burst into laughter after reading the statement above. Of course, Zuraida aka Mak Lampir is just one of those Lab Monkeys the PKR fielded in 2008 and never expected to have won the seat.  Perhaps she, like Wan Azizah, need to have a good grasp of their surroundings and of current affairs before coming up with such bravado (Wan Azizah still thinks that the Lembaga Letrik Negara or LLN still exists!).

The Royal Malaysian Police only affected the arrest of more than a hundred members of the illegal Persatuan or Pertubuhan Peronda Sukarela (PPS) or whatever you call it by on the 31st August 2014, that Lim Guan Eng claims to have been set up four years ago under the powers vested to the Penang State Government to assist the police in crime-fighting.  However, members of the PPS have been seen putting up DAP party flags and banners instead and have been involved in acts that are extrajudicialis.  Nothing much is known about the PPS despite having been set up for four years. No paper work, no guidelines, nothing.  It is just a band of vigilantes set up in the name of the state government.

 

The action by the police was taken after a warning was issued for the PPS NOT to gather on the 31st August 2014.  This was after the letter below dated 26th August 2014 from the Registrar of Societies was received:

Letter from RoS on the status of the PPS
Letter from RoS on the status of the PPS

With such information in hand, only idiots like Zuraida and those who support her still think that it is absurd and an abuse of police power for going after the members of the PPS.  Lim Guan Eng’s feeble attempt at equating the PPS to the JKKK is also a funny act.  The JKKK (Jawatankuasa Keselamatan dan Kemajuan Kampung) is formed under the local government to become a committee to channel issues affecting the socio-welfare, development and security of a kampung.  They do not have extra-judicial but absent powers and do not wear any uniform like that of the PPS.

Sméagol and Gollum. Innocent and dangerous at the same time.
Sméagol and Gollum. Innocent and dangerous at the same time.

If Lim Guan Eng is so adamant that the police in Penang are short-handed, why not utilise the funds paid tot he PPS members to provide allowances to support the RELA and Rukun Tetangga initiatives, both which are legal organisations empowered to assist the police when needed? Why the need to set up a shady uniformed organisation that has no guideline whatsoever and does all DAP’s biddings?

Anyway, as I mentioned, Zuraida is a lab monkey from the 2008 era. Had she read the letter from the RoS above and understood its content and where it falls on the timeline, she might not have issued such  press statement that excites the public’s disaffection against the administration of justice.
