PERMATApintar is an education program that is to nurture balanced gifted and talented individuals, giving opportunities to children between nine to fifteen to optimize their learning potential.
Among those whom have benefited from this program include 22-year old former PERMATA Pintar College student Koo Jia Hui from Pulau Pinang who is now pursuing her PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Oxford.
If it was not for this initiative by Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, God knows who would have helped her. The DAP government surely did not offer her any help despite claims to have made annual budget surpluses.
Koo Jia Hui thanked PERMATA Pintar and Rosmah Mansor for helping her achieve her dreams.
And because of the success of the PERMATA Pintar program, Rosmah is in London now to expand the Nobelist Mindset program with the cooperation of Royal Society of London and the University of Cambridge.
London, a beautiful city, unfortunately is also home to ugly fiends such as U-Turn’s Mahathir’s pet dog, Claire.
I’m sorry. For a moment it does look like Claire but a tad too pretty. Claire’s far uglier.
And earlier she let loose her pack of grotesque beings to harrass Rosmah Mansor at the Royal Society of London.
It seems that Claire does not want human beings to be smarter or have the opportunity to have a better life than the gargoyles she calls her journalists.
Here is someone trying to give children a meaningful and better life, only to be harrassed by a white bitch who feeds on the scrap handed out by a ingrate nonagenarian.
Semalam, ketua songlap negara menyatakan bahawa pengambilan BR1M adalah merupakan suatu perbuatan rasuah dan adalah salah di sisi undang-undang.
Umum tahu walaupun pemberian BR1M itu bukankah suatu jumlah yang besar buat setiap individu namun sedikit-sebanyak ianya membantu menampung perbelanjaan terutamanya bagi golongan berpendapatan rendah.
Sebelum ini, subsidi yang dikeluarkan okeh kerajaan dinikmati oleh setiap rakyat Malaysia tanpa mengira kemampuan dan adalah merupakan suatu sistem yang kurang adil.
Setelah banyak subsidi dihapuskan, simpanan yang diperolehi kerajaan diberi kepada golongan sasar dalam bentuk BR1M dan lain-lain kemudahan.
Syarikat-syarikat besar yang selama ini mengelak dari pembayaran cukai pendapatan dengan cara mengaburi jumlah jualan kini tidak dapat lari dengan adanya GST. Kutipan GST juga membantu kerajaan mengalihkan punca pendapatan yang terlalu bergantung kepada industri minyak dan gas.
BR1M yang berjumlah RM5.3 bilion telah membantu seramai 7.4 juta orang dari golongan sasar. Jumlah tersebut juga telah membantu pacuan ekonomi melalui suntikan aliran tunai yang dibelanjakan oleh penerima BR1M.
Tidak hairanlah apabila kerajaan Arab Saudi baru-baru ini mengumumkan bantuan kewangan a la BR1M kepada golongan sasar di negara tersebut bagi membantu memacu ekonomi negara tersebut.
Arab Saudi juga telah mengambil langkah yang sama seperti Malaysia dengan menghapuskan subsidi dan memoerkenalkan skim bantuan kewangan bagi golongan berpendapatan rendah dan sederhana.
Adakah ini bermakna kerajaan Arab Saudi juga mengamalkan pemberian rasuah? Sudah tentu kenyataan ketua songlap negara itu menghina bukan sahaja kerajaan kedua-dua negara malah menghina golongan yang amat memerlukan bantuan tersebut.
Kerajaan bersifat zalim – dan itulah modal yang dihamburkan setiap hari bagi menghasut rakyat bangkit menentang kerajaan yang ada.
Ada yang menyamakan kebangkitan orang Melayu menentang pentadbiran British pada tahun 1946 dengan demonstrasi BERSIH. Malah ada juga organisasi bukan kerajaan (NGO) yang bertopengkan Islam yang menyamakan perbuatan Rasulullah SAW membebaskan kota Makkah dengan demonstrasi BERSIH menentang korupsi, kezaliman dan penindasan. Ini adalah merupakan suatu fitnah terhadap Rasulullah SAW.
Pertamanya, pada tahun 1946, kebangkitan orang Melayu menentang pentadbiran Malayan Union jelmaan British adalah di atas arahan para pemimpin orang Melayu itu sendiri untuk mempertahankan kedudukan agama Islam, raja-raja Melayu Islam, dan tanah air dari penindasan dan penjajahan kafir.
Keduanya, pembukaan Kota Makkah (Fathu Makkah) oleh Rasulullah SAW adalah sebahagian dari peperangan tentera Islam yang berpusat di Madinah menentang Bani Quraisy Jahiliyah dan membersihkan Kaabah dari patung berhala dan segala perbuatan syirik.
Rasulullah SAW bukannya bersekongkol dengan Kafir Quraisy untuk menjatuhkan Islam. Jauh sekali bekerjasama dengan puak-puak berikut untuk menjatuhkan pemimpin beragama Islam:
Apabila menyebut perkataan zalim saya nak bertanyakan beberapa soalan:
Zalimnya kerajaan Malaysia adakah para Raja Melayu dan Perdana Menteri telah meninggalkan syiar Islam dan mengisytiharkan diri mereka kafir?
Adakah masjid-masjid yang diperintahkan tutup atau dirobohkan?
Adakah mana-mana orang Islam yang ditangkap atau dilarang dari melakukan sebarang bentuk ibadah?
Adakah mana-mana orang yang mati atau kebuluran akibat kemiskinan?
Saya yakin yang paling hampir boleh dijawab adalah solan saya yang No.4. Namun kerajaan telah menyediakan pusat-pusat pungutan zakat. Kemiskinan dalam masyarakat adalah merupakan masalah Fardhu Kifayah. Sekiranya masyarakat sekeliling gagal melaporkan mana-mana anggota masyarakat yang layak yang memerlukan bantuan maka kesalahan itu terjatuh di atas bahu masyarakat tersebut.
Sekiranya tiada sesiapa di kalangan masyarakat tersebut membantu menghantar makanan kepada orang yang memerlukan dan meletakkan beban tersebut di bahu kerajaan sebab “makanan aku untuk keluarga aku sahaja” maka orang itu yang menanggung dosa membiarkan anggota masyarakatnya menderita.
Firman Allah SWT:
“Wahai orang-orang yang beriman, taatilah Allah dan taatilah Rasul dan para pemimpin di kalangan kamu.” (an-Nisaa’ 59)
Sabda Rasulullah SAW:
Sesiapa yang taat kepada pemimpin maka dia telah taat kepadaku. Dan sesiapa yang derhaka kepada pemimpin maka dia telah derhaka kepada aku (Bukhari 2957)
Kamu wajib patuh dan setia walau dalam keadaan susah atau senang, suka atau duka, dan walaupun merugikan kepentingan mu (Muslim 1836)
Sesiapa yang dipimpin oleh seorang pemimpin lalu dia melihat pemimpinnya berbuat maksiat kepda Allah, maka hendaklah dia membenci perbuatannya namun jangan dia lepaskan ketaatan kepadanya (Muslim 1855).
Selagi pemimpin itu tidak syirik kepada Allah, menentang agama Islam, maka wajib kita mentaatinya.
Dalam Bajet 2017 yang dibentangkan baru-baru ini, sebanyak RM30 juta telah diperuntukkan untuk melahirkan tahfiz yang berdaya saing dalam pasaran pekerjaan melalui Dasar Pendidikan Tahfiz.
Malah 1MDB yang menjadi bahan kutukan warga kota selama ini jugalah entiti yang telah memperluaskan dan menjadikan Masjid Kampung Baru suatu tempat beribadah yang amat selesa untuk mereka-mereka yang mengutuk 1MDB menunaikan solat mengurangkan dosa kemunafikan mereka sendiri.
Sekiranya anda tidak puas hati dengan apa yang telah dilakukan oleh kerajaan, atau bencikan kerajaan hanya disebabkan beg tangan Rosmah, maka apabila tiba masa mengundi, undilah pihak lawan. Dan jangan berikan saya alasan bahawa sistem pilihanraya kita tidak adil. Kalau tidak adil dan berpihakkan kerajaan Barisan Nasional, masakan DAP boleh mentadbir Pulau Pinang dan Selangor (menerusi boneka mereka – PKR)?
Tepuk dahi tanya diri: aku nak ikut agama atau telunjuk kafir?
Mari sama-sama kita hayati video yang telah dikongsi oleh Dr Aznil Hisham berikut:
I remember waking up on a Sunday, 9th March 2008 it was, thinking how different life would be thenceforth. The Barisan Alternatif, the precursor to the now-defunct Pakatan Rakyat had managed to wrestle the state of Srlangor where I live from the clutches of the Barisan Nasional, which also lost three other states, Pulau Pinang, Perak and Kedah. It was a situation difficult to fathom but I though to myself the voters had spoken and that the Barisan Alternatif had won these states fair and square and that democracy works.
Just four months before that, the Gabungan Pilihanraya Bersih dan Adil (BERSIH) organised a rally demanding the clean-up of the electoral roll, use of indelible ink, abolition of the postal voting for military and police personnel, and free and fair access to the mass media for all political parties. Between 10,000 to 50,000 protesters attended the rally. On that note, the victory of the Barisan Alternatif in the four states underscored the fact that the election system and principle of democracy work in Malaysia.
Since then, BERSIH has seen their numbers dwindling. BERSIH 2.0 saw between 10,000 to 20,000 people attending this rally. BERSIH 3.0 again saw about 20,000 people attending while BERSH 4.0 saw between 29,000 to a peak of 50,000 people attending. With over 13 million registered voters in Malaysia those who attended the BERSIH rallies made up on 0.38 percent of the total number of voters – hardly a significant number.
Prinumi founder, Mahathir Mohammad, attended BERSIH 4.0, and declared his support for the movement. This is funny considering that when he was that capricious potentate for 22 years, he banned all protests and assemblies and locked away those who opposed him without any chance of a trial.
In an effort to bring Najib Razak down, Mahathir undertook an effort to get the people to sign his Deklarasi Rakyat and in May of this year declared that the declaration had gotten the signature of 1.27 million individuals. This is a significant number since it represented 9.77 percent of the number of total voters in Malaysia.
It was funny that Mahathir had chosen to make a grand entrance to join the BERSIH 5.0 participants – using a private jet. For someone whose battle cry include the fight against GST and rising cost of living, blaming government austerity drive for all that, he surely knows how to show those whom he lead the meaning of prudent spending.
One would have thought that with Mahathir’s participation, at least a million people would flood the streets of Kuala Lumpur, but that never materialised. only 15,500 participants attended the rally. That was all that Mahathir could muster – a meagre 31 percent of the previous BERSIH attendees. This is because people could see how big a hypocrite Mahathir is, and many stayed away because of his support.
Mahathir should realise that people can see through his lies and know better than to join in the farcical struggle to fight corruption. After all, he is the Father of Corruption. I did not say that. Anwar Ibrahim did. And Mahathir fighting against corruption is as hypocritical as having Lim Guan Eng, who has been charged in court for corruption, join BERSIH to fight corruption.
Let us face it. The only way to change a government democratically is through the ballot box. The 2008 and 2013 General Elections have proven so. Why demonstrate when it is much ado about nothing?
For those who claim that they are Malaysian yet cannot speak the language, let me translate to you what His Royal Highness The Sultan of Johor said above:
“Ladies and gentlemen, let me remind you of a sickness that has come to Johor, that is caused by a deadly virus.
This virus is worse than the Zika virus because it has no known cure. If a heart attack could cause immediate death, this virus could cause a lifetime of suffering.
This virus that I am talking about is called disunity.
This virus is carried by a new political party and is spread by its members. This virus is deadly because there it is difficult to cure. When society is infected, it destroys the people’s lives and also the nation’s prosperity.
Therefore I hope that my rakyat will stay away from this virus. Use your wisdom and don’t regret later.
The carrier of this virus will bash the government and incite the people to hate the leaders on a daily basis, and then turn a blind eye on the benefits that the government has brought them. When their agenda is not achieved they will just leave society to suffer.
I speak as an elder or as a father who loves unity and wish to see my rakyat live in peace and tranquility. I do not want to see my rakyat in disunity and I loathe certain individuals. They have personal agenda and incite the people to quarrel among themselves.
When there is discord the rakyat will live in misery and when that happens don’t turn to me (for help).”
There is one party that was recently formed that has come to Johor and fit that description. The illness that is bring could only be called the ‘Black Plague‘. It seems to be the term closest to the description of the carriers mentioned by HRH The Sultan of Johor.
Which party do you think is being referred to? Would you care to hazard a guess?
Sultan Muhammad V, the 29th Sultan of Kelantan, has been elected to become the 15th Yang DiPertuan Agong by the Council of Rulers today. His Royal Highness shall be replacing Tuanku Al-Haj Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah ibni Almarhum Sultan Badlishah, the Sultan of Kedah whose tenure will end on the 12th December 2016.
For months whispers have been flying around that HRH Sultan Muhammad V would not be eligible be elected as the YDP Agong as he is not married. However, there are only three reasons for a nominated Sultan to be disqualified;
He is not an adult,
He has made known to the Council of Rulers that he wishes not to be nominated, or,
Five of the Rulers vote against his nomination for reasons such as being mentally or physically challenged, or for some other reason.
The second and third reasons were used during the discussion to elect the First Yang DiPertuan Agong where Sultan Abu Bakar of Pahang was the most senior Ruler after Sultan Sir Ibrahim of Johor who had declined the nomination due to old age (Sultan Sir Ibrahim passed away on the 8th May 1959). He became the Sultan of Pahang on the 24th June 1932. However, Sultan Abu Bakar’s nomination was rejected FIVE TIMES by the Rulers because he was a controversial figure – he had financial difficulties and had wanted to marry a perempuan ronggeng (Abdullah Ahmad, 2016 p.141). Tunku Abdul Rahman, who was then the Chief Minister of Malaya advised Sultan Abu Bakar against marrying this woman named Hathifah binte Abdul Rashid if he wanted to become the Yang DiPertuan Agong. Sultan Abu Bakar agreed.
However, Sultan Abu Bakar married Hathifah anyway and Tunku only discovered so when they were honeymooning in Hong Kong (Straits Times, 21st April 1957).
Early this morning, the infamous portal Malaysiakini and the Malaysiakini-wanna-be Malay Mail Online both reported that the Sultan of Johor had declined the offer to become the next Yang DiPertuan Agong, quoting a Facebook page and not official sources.
It has been a norm that the Raja or Sultan with the most seniority would be considered as the candidate for the post of the Yang DiPertuan Agong. All the nine states have since provided a Yang DiPertuan Agong and the list of seniority is as follows:
The Yam DiPertuan Besar of Negeri Sembilan,
The Sultan of Selangor,
The Raja of Perlis,
The Sultan of Terengganu,
The Sultan of Kedah,
The Sultan of Kelantan,
The Sultan of Pahang,
The Sultan of Johor,
The Sultan of Perak.
With the ascension of the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, as the ninth Yang DiPertuan Agong, a new official list was made based on the seniority of the states that have provided a Yang DiPertuan Agong previously. Whether or not Johor was offered is not known but such offer could only be made had the Sultans of Kelantan and Pahang declined the nomination. It would seem impossible for the Sultan of Kelantan to reject such offer only to accept it later when the one that should have been offered next is the Sultan of Perak.
Such is the uniqueness of the office of the Yang DiPertuan Agong that was institutionalised on the 31st August 1957. It was first to be called the Yang DiPertuan Besar but was rejected by the Rulers Council in favour of Yang DiPertuan Agong. Every five years the Rulers would meet to elect the next Yang DiPertuan Agong and the Timbalan Yang DiPertuan Agong. Although some say that this is similar to that practised in the United Arab Emirates, the office of the President of the UAE is a hereditary office of absolute monarchies. They are the government whereas in Malaysia the government is elected by the people and is dismissed by the people through general elections. And unlike in the UAE, the Rulers council cannot dismiss a Prime Minister or anyone else without the advise of the Prime Minister. Therefore, a recent attempt by Parti Pribumi member named Mahathir to get the Rulers Council to intervene and dismiss the Prime Minister is just a futile and cheap attempt to lie to the people of Malaysia. Of course, there would be those mentally-challenged people who would believe that he is right.
With the election of Sultan Muhammad V as the 15th Yang DiPertuan Agong it is hoped that this would bring about a much better cooperation between the PAS-led Kelantan state government and the Barisan Nasional-led Federal government. Such cooperation would be very beneficial to not only the development and people of the state of Kelantan, but also to the Malays and Islam in Malaysia that are coming under constant attacks by Malay liberalistas, evangelists and chauvinistic politicians opposed to Malay unity and the position of Islam as the Religion of the Federation.
I was in stitches when I read Mahathir’s latest posting ‘Pentadbiran Kuku Besi‘. He wrote as if he had never oppress the people during his 22 years as the Premier. He is fortunate that the Internet was still in its infancy and was only introduced to the masses in the mid 1990s, and Google only came online using its own domain on the 4th September 1998, two days after Anwar Ibrahim was sacked from all government posts as well as from UMNO. Prior to that Google was hosted under stanford.edu. Not many of those below the age of 35 could remember the oppression Malaysians were subjected to.
And what has Mahathir written this time?
1. When receiving the membership form to join Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, some say that they have been threatened by UMNO dan Najib’s government.
2. Various threats were made including not being able to receive BR1M, expulsion from UMNO, removal from Government and government agencies posts, not being given contracts, scholarships would be withdrawn or not given, banks will demand for earlier payments or not give loans.
3. But they prefer to be oppressed knowing, that with their participation in PPBM and vote for it in GE14, the country would enjoy better benefits.
4. They say that despite the pressure they would still join PPBM. And they would attempt to get more Bumiputeras including UMNO members to join PPBM.
5. The struggle to them means the willingness to face hurdles. The struggle is meaningless if it is just a walk in the park.
I am quite perplexed by this statement. Do people who want to join Pribumi actually make prior announcement to UMNO that they would be joining Pribumi? Or would they just fill in the membership form and submit to Pribumi without bothering to inform UMNO?
As far as my memory serves me, not one person has ever announced his or her joining another political party unless it is arranged by the receiving party for publicity. And likewise when the situation is reversed. So, why would there be threats and so on if no one knows of their intention?
In reality, millions of Opposition supporters continue to form lines just to collect BR1M handouts. Students continue to enjoy their scholarships despite going on the street to demonstrate against the oppressive government that continues to give them monthly scholarship money. And perhaps about 50 percent of civil servants who support the Opposition still continue to go to work and none have lost their job or got demoted for doing so.
And many merit-less Bumiputera contractors still get government contracts despite supporting the Opposition.
Expulsion From UMNO
This is the other reason for me to laugh out loud. If you are already a Pribumi, why bother about being expelled from UMNO? You cannot have the cake and eat it too!
6. Verily Najib is also desperate to break my spirit. Not only have my police escorts been withdrawn but now even my officers and cooks are being transferred. All my associates are being harrassed and threatened by the Inland Revenue Board especially those who have businesses. If all taxes have been paid there will be additional taxes imposed on them.
For those uninformed, the Office of Tun Dr Mahathir is under the purview of the Prime Minister’s Department. This means, the administration, staffing, budget and others come under the administration of the Prime Minister’s Department. In short, the salaries of the staff of the Office of Tun Dr Mahathir come from the Prime Minister’s Department.
Who is the Prime Minister? (CLUE: HE IS NOT A KUTTY)
Isn’t it the prerogative of the Prime Minister’s Department to transfer in or out, any personnel from any of the agencies under its purview, also accord, reduce or withdraw any privileges given using the budget of the Prime Minister’s Department?
There is an old adage: don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
Even if there are Mahathir’s associates who are being harrassed by the Inland Revenue Board it could mean that previously they were only paying so much in the form of sales and services tax (SST) when under Mahathir and could no longer under-declare their earnings and have to pay higher taxes under the Goods and Services tax (GST) scheme introduced under Najib. All those who used to cheat the government and the rakyat of their earnings previously are now caught with their pants down!
7. Proton people are not allowed to speak to me, and my business associates are not allowed to approach Proton. It is Najib’s intention that Proton goes bankrupt and can be sold to foreigners for cheap.
8. My name can no longer be associated with Proton. Proton will be sold 100% to foreigners so the nationa car industry would be decimated. Only imported cars will be allowed to be sold in Malaysia. Nothing that I started will be allowed to exist. Let the local industries fail as long as Najib is satisfied.
Proton. A company that was set up in 1983 to start the national automobile industry.
With that, Proton once again asked for assistance from the government led by Najib Razak so that 12,000 Proton employees and 50,000 employees of the various Proton vendor companies do not lose their job. In your opinion, is it right for the government to use taxpayers’ money (using the favourite Opposition catchphrase) to assist a handicapped company?
Well, in the end Najib Razak’s oppressive government agreed to help Proton for the sake of the 62,000 odd direct and indirect employees by giving a RM1.5 billion soft loan.
And who is the owner amongst owners of this severely handicapped company that has no shame asking for help from Najib Razak’s oppressive government?
Which Bangladeshi is that whose name is at the top of the list who said that his name can no longer be associated with Proton but got the RM1.5 billion injection from Najib Razak’s oppressive government? Does it make sense for the government to pump in more money into Proton just to kill it? Why bother spend even a single Sen if you do not want it to work out? And how can he say that Proton people are not allowed to speak to him? Isn’t he one of the owners?
…and businessmen associated with me can no longer do business with Proton…
By this statement, is this a form of admission that Mahathir has been giving his cronies contracts from Proton? Does this have any role in making this company severely handicapped?
9. Verily, many Malaysian are afraid of trouncing by Najib’s government. This is Najib’s democracy.
10. I will not give up and I believe Malaysians have the will to topple Najib’s iron fist government. They are not afraid. The more the pressure the more the hatred they have for Najib and his government. All are ashamed of the P.M. who has been accused and believed by the whole world to have siphoned billions of the rakyat’s money.
11. The rakyat and I are aware of the intention of the new security law. It is not about foreign terrorism because we have adequate laws for that. Its intention is to break the struggle against Najib.
12. This law that was never assented to by the Yang DiPertuan Agong and the Malay Rulers accords Najib the power to declare security areas and with that anyone could be held in detention without trial. This is worse than the ISA.
13. If anyone is killed, be it a member of the security forces or the civilian, there will not be any inquest (a magistrate’s examination into the cause of death) held. And family of the deceased will not be able to bring the matter to the courts to seek justice.
14. Actually laws like this cannot be passed without the signature of the SPB Yang diPertuan Agong. But Najib is not one who cares for the law or its regulations. He is the PM and believes that he has immunity from prosecution. His pet the Attorney-General will make sure of that.
15. These are all signs that there is no more democracy in Malaysia. There is only an iron-fisted rule, a dictatorship.
16. The rakyat will protest the destruction of democracy in this beloved nation through a legal process. InsyaAllah the rakyat’s determination will see to the end of Najib’s wrong-doings.
The National Security Council Act that was recently passed was drafted to enable all assets under the various government agencies to be unified under one command that is the National Security Council. It is not just for use in response to terrorist acts but also in times of disasters. We have seen how poor the inter-agencies coordination was during the floods of Kelantan, Pahang and Terengganu. The main reason for this weakness was the absence of a unified command to coordinate efforts using assets of the various government agencies.
The power to declare security areas is not something new. Under Section 31 of the Police Act, 1967, designated police officers have the power to instruct any person to stay indoors while Section 3(1) Public Order (Preservation) Act, 1958, gives the power to the Minister of Home Affairs to declare whichever area that in the view of the Minister should be declared as a security area. However, Section 18 of the National Security Council Act, 2016 gives this power to the Prime Minister and no longer the Minister of Home Affairs to declare security areas AS ADVISED BY THE COUNCIL. This means that the Prime Minister CANNOT declare any security area unilaterally. Is this not better than ONE person making all the decisions without weighing all the inputs from practitioners who are more well-versed in the matters of national security?
Do not equate the power to declare security areas to the power to declare an emergency which remains the power of the Yang DiPertuan Agong, not the Prime Minister’s, nor is it the power of the National Security Council.
And Mahathir should not pay dumb – he is the person who destroyed democracy; even the powers of the Yang DiPertuan Agong to pass or not a bill of law was removed by him and caused the bills that affect other than the power to declare an emergency, the Institution of the Rulers, the position of the Bumiputera and Bahasa Malaysia, to pass without having been assented by the Yang DiPertuan Agong.
Mahathir should realise, he is living in sunset. Enough of lies.
