There are times when I wonder how neither Ramadhan and Syawal are no longer sacrosanct to the people from the Pakatan Harapan.

The latest blank shot was fired by Fahmi Fadzil claims that the Pakatan has nothing to do with the civil suit by the US Department of Justice.

There is a pattern here actually.  The RM2.6 billion issue was first brought up by  the Wall Street Journal on 2 July 2015, exactly 14 days before Hari Raya.

This was followed a year later by the first civil suit by the DoJ on 20 July 2016, again, 14 days after Hari Raya.

That the latest suit comes a week before Hari Raya is of no surprise to me. It is just timed for the Pakatan to have something to talk about while diverting the real issues of the abuses committed by their overlords in the DAP as well as the problems of the self-proclaimed champion of Pakatan, the PPBM.

The overlords in the DAP, a party that virtually submits to the wishes of the Emperor Lim Kit Siang and Tokong Lim Guan Eng  has been facing questions from the Penang Barisan Nasional and esteemed blogger Miss Lim Sian See.  All the questions have thus far gone unanswered. The self-proclaimed champion of Pakatan, PPBM, is facing an internal strife where the leadership cannot even answer questions posed by those in their own ranks, who were jumped upon by Mukhriz who slammed them for criticising the leadership.  It was alright, however, for his father to criticise the leadership of UMNO TWICE that resulted in a trust deficit in the party, and the departure of one President.

Like his father, Mukhriz Mudah Lupa

I doubt that there is anything to worry about the latest DoJ suit.  It still is a civil suit for the forfeiture of assets and is far from being a criminal suit.  And while direct reference has been made towards Jho Low, most other characters mentioned in the suit are monikers (for lack of a better word) to refer to people who are NOT being investigated regarding the case.

But of course, people like Fahmi Fadzil insists that someone be brought to justice, and charged in a court of law in Malaysia.  On what charge?  What crime has taken place and where?  Even the DoJ says it is a civil suit for something that happened within the American financial system.  How do we even try an American case in Malaysia?  So does Pakatan speak about all this with no knowledge or any hint of any comprehension of the legal system?

Name MO1 – this I saw on Twitter and Facebook several times.  Some have been urging he DoJ to just name who MO1 is and drag the person to court.  Why ask? I thought Rahman Dahlan explained to BBC last year that MO1 refers to Najib Razak.  So what? Isn’t that what Pakatan and its supporters wanted to hear?  Or is it because of the strong culture in Pakatan and its supporters of sucking up to the ‘white man that you need a white man to say it out loud?

Now, let me repeat this. MO1 is called MO1 because MO1 is NOT being investigated.  In the suit document I do not see any Najib Razak or MO1 or Rosmah Mansor being named as persons or institutions that might be affected by the suit.

Do you see any MO1 mentioned?

Therefore, if MO1 is not affected by the investigation and suit, why is there a need to summon the Ambassador of the United States to Malaysia?

And yes, Singapore has fined, charged, jailed, banned some people and banks for money laundering of 1MDB money.  Was that done by Malaysians or Malaysian officials?

Five banks were fined for money laundering the money.  One ex-manager from Swiss Bank was jailed and fined. Another was jailed 18 weeks for not reporting transactions related to Jho Low.  If they want to launder Jho Low’s money in their country, what has that to do with 1MDB?

And isn’t making statements like “And lest we forget, the aim of the civil forfeiture is to return the money stolen back to the Malaysian people” malicious?  Perhaps Fahmi Fadzil can enlighten us which money of the rakyat’s that has been stolen?  As far as audits performed by the government and renowned audit firms, all 1MDB money has been accounted for.  And mind you, monies borrowed by 1MDB to make more money were not from the rakyat’s coffers.  Unlike the bailouts of cronies by Pakatan’s Supreme-Leader-once-Enemy Mahathir, no public fund was ever used by the 1MDB to make money, save for the paid-up capital when setting up the company.

Also the following statement made by Fahmi Fadzil:

It is clear that Malaysians demand the truth – about what really happened in 1MDB; about the billions of ringgit allegedly siphoned by certain individuals; about diamonds and other expensive things bought allegedly using billions stolen from the Malaysian people.

Again, audits of the 1MDB has shown that no money is missing from 1MDB’s coffers.  So how can there be billions of ringgit siphoned by any individual from the Malaysian people?  Walk the talk, Fahmi. Show us the billions siphoned from the Malaysian people.  Talk is cheap.  Bullshit s cheaper.

Diamonds.  Well, who has the diamonds?  What was Fahmi Fadzil implying? That the wife of the MO1 received diamonds?  There has been no proof whasoever that Rosmah received any diamond ring from Jho Low.  If she did, is it wrong for a person to receive gifts? When you receive a present from your father, do you ask him where he got the money to buy that present from?

Jho Low did buy his mother diamonds though.

Maybe Pakatan should drag Jho Low’s mother to court for receiving a gift from his son

The only story about the wife of MO1 receving a diamond ring only came from one of the jokers in Pakatan.  The most famous joker who lost four court cases for slander.

Pakatan’s Chief Joker

My only guess why Salleh Said Keruak wrote as such is that he, as I am, was angry that story about a civil suit by the DoJ that makes no mention of the MO1 being investigated, is being skewed by Fahmi Fadzil et al to make it look to the rakyat as if there has been a wrongdoing by the MO1 and the wife of the MO1.  Only brainless monkeys would continue to believe the lies that have been dished out by the Pakatan.

And as for Fahmi Fadzil’s call for Jho Low to be tried in Malaysia, I hope he does have a brain.  What has he stolen from Malaysia?

Eager to divert attention from the problems faced by Pakatan, Fahmi tries to look smart and suggest stupid things. Please continue with this stupidity, Fahmi.  You are definitely doing BN a favour.

Eat monkey brain

Recently Azmin Ali announced a two and a half months bonus for Selangor civil servants. The civil servants rejoiced at hearing this news and I am sure Azmin cheered himself.

He stands to get almost RM73,000 as his pay is RM29,000 per month.

With two weeks to go till the end of Ramadhan, news leaked out that the confirmation of any bonus payout will only be made known this coming Tuesday. And already netizens are up in arms over it.



And it seems Pulau Pinang is mulling to cancel its binus payout due to short of funds, as seen in the discussion below:


The Pulau Pinang state government had recently announced that it will give bonus to its civil servants, but with certains terms attached:





The bonus is for 0.75 months or RM1,000 minimum, whichever is higher. This goes to show that the Pulau Pinang government is no longer cash rich.

In order to be able to pay the bonus out, and to continue keep the administration running, the Pulau Pinang state legislative assembly recently passed an enactment to allow the state government to take an undisclosed amount of cash loan from the EXIM Bank of China.

As in the words of Tokong Chao Ah Beng, “borrow money to make more money.”


It seems that the business of running a state government is all too easy. It does not matter how you manage the finances, if you run short of cash, borrow.

And it does not matter who has to shoulder the burden of repaying this debt. According to portal Utaranews, each Penang Lang will have to pay back RM28,000 for this loan..

What does Tokong care? He’s going to jail and he’ll be fed and cared using the money that the Penang suckers pay in the form of taxes. So not only do they have to bear RM28,000 each, but in fact RM28,000 + x being the anount Tokong will be living off them.

This shows how the Pakatan-led states government is totally not in sync with the wishes and wants of the rakyat. They are always dancing to their own tempo, and not with the rakyat – just like this pathetic attempt by DAP MP for Bukit Mertajam, Steven Sim Chee Keong, to be in sync with his constituents.

Delusional old crap

The above is an extract from an interview of a psychopathic and delusional old man by the Nikkei Asian Review yesterday.  He said that he had never abused his power when he was the Prime Minister.

If you have a copy of Barry Wain’s ‘Malaysian Maverick‘ you can see the list of abuses that Mahathir had done during his premiership.  And those are only the ones that Mr Wain had discovered.

Time Magazine quoted an economist at Morgan Stanley in Singapore as saying that the country might have lost as much as US$100 billion since the early 1980s to corruption. Under Mahathir’s 22 years term, there were monetary losses amounting to over at least hundred of billions of Ringgit and this excluded those unaccounted for, and irretrievable.

Another politician, Syed Husin Ali, whose party is now worshipping Mahathir said, “Petronas has neither been fully transparent nor accountable with how it spends its money, especially in aiding and abetting Tun Mahathir to indulge in unproductive construction of mega projects, to bail out ailing crony companies and corporate figures, and to involve itself in excessive and wasteful spending on celebrations and conferences.”

For the record, Mr Wain has never been sued by Mahathir.  Neither has Mahathir’s foe-turned-best friend Lim Kit Siang been sued for his remarks on the former.

Lim Kit Siang aka The Emperor once wrote:

If we examine the decade of the Mahathir administration, we will find that the scandals, unaccountability, the human rights violations and abuses of power have one common thread – to protect and further the economic interests of the ruling political elites. This necessitated a growing concentration of political power in the hands of the Executive and increasingly in the hands of the Prime Minister, at the expense of the fundamental constitutional principles of the Separation of Powers among the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary, the Independence of the Judiciary and the Rule of Law.

Under his political culture, the role of Law and Judges is not to ensure justice and protect human rights, but to protect the vested economic interests of the powers-that-be from expose and jeopardy.

Two-thirds parliamentary majority has become a blank cheque for abuses of power and human rights violations.”

Emperor Lim was notably vocal on the issues of the Forex scandal that all but wiped out our Bank Negara reserves and also the BMF scandal before he became the jockey that now rides on the political mule called Mahathir.  But the things he wrote on Mahathir are still there waiting to be used against the latter should he (Mahathir) forget his current position – a mule.

As a matter of fact, Emperor Lim also has examples of abuse of power in relation to freedom of the press during Mahathir’s time – and I am not talking just about Ops Lallang.


So for Mahathir to claim that he never abused his power as the Prime Minister is an absolute farce.  It only goes to show how desperate he is to paint a false picture of his past to the youngsters who were yet to be born when Mahathir had this country beneath his fists.

He thinks that the Pakatan will collectively agree to his ambitions of either putting his son as the Prime Minister or he become one himself based on his 22-year experience.

But we all know that no one in the Pakatan wishes to have another one term of Mahathir remembering what he was capable of.  So they will just ride on his anger towards Najib Razak…like the old mule he is.

Apparently the hand-holding incident involving Zairil Christopher of DAP and FMT’s Nawar Firdaws took place in Kuching.

Nawar Firdaws is also said to be the girl seen intimately dancing with Zairil Christopher in several photos at a drinking hole in the Hartamas area.

She is recognised for almost always writing against Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.


Both the DAP and web portal FMT are still silent over this issue.

While not openly defending Zairil Christopher, it is expected that Zairil Christopher would be exonerated by the DAP simply because he is Tokong’s errand boy and is the one actively screwing the Malays.


This is the general style of the Pakatan that fights for the people. Those who are not in the circle of those in power will get chucked out while those who rub shoulders with party supremos get away with murder.

For instance, Rafizi Ramli who is from Wan Azizah’s camp and had been found guilty in a court of law on at least four occasions for incitement and slander is still regarded as a hero.

Adam Rosly who is not from Wan Azizah’s camp, charged in court for giving false statements to the SPRM will be given disciplinary action by PKR.

Loh Chee Heng, the Selangor ADUN accused by the DAP of corruption was expelled from the party. He has never been charged in court for the alleged corrupt practice.

Yet, Tokong Lim Guan Eng, the Chief Corrupted Minister of Pulau Pinang, is still running the administration of both the Pulau Pinang state government and the DAP. He was charged in court for corrupt practices while being in office, the same way some Javanese guy was jailed for.

Meanwhile, the always Missing-In-Action MP for Gelang Patah, Emperor Lim Kit Siang, has been going around meeting voters in Pulau Pinang – something he does not do in his own constituency.


Dà Shi Kit Siang knows that it is only a matter of time that his son the Tokong will be languishing in jail and somebody needs to keep the Lim Dynasty in power.

Of course the Tokong will never get expelled from the DAP for being corrupted. That is how it works in North Korea as well.

And neither will FMT be giving it much coverage either. The only thing that would be of interest to the portal’s writer is Zakar Zairil Naik.

PAS delegates at a Muktamar – photo courtesy of Perak Today

It is almost 29-27 in Selangor.

Yesterday, the Dewan Ulama PAS voted for the party to end its ties with DAP-lackey, PKR. Today, the Muktamar Pemuda PAS voted for the same.

Tomorrow, the Muktamar PAS will decide if it will continue to work with PKR or not.

This would see the end of the 19-year alliance that started with Mahathir’s ousting of Anwar Ibrahim.

PKR has already called PAS’s bluff. Saifuddin Nasution has already called for PAS Selangor Exco members to quit their posts if the decision to sever ties with PKR is final.

Even with PAS out of the picture, the Selangor Pakatan government holds on to the seat of the government with a simple majority.

Pakatan would be down to the last three parties in Selangor: PKR, DAP and PAN.

But this would mean the true master in Selangor which is DAP, holds the largest number of non-Malay seats in the government. They hold 14 seats while PKR has only 13 of which three are non-Malays. PAN, which lives at the mercy of DAP only has two.

It is very unlikely that PAN would go against DAP’s wishes in Selangor.

It was bad enough during Abdul Khalid Ibrahim’s time when the Malays in Selangor were stronger. DAP was the one calling the shots.

It would be interesting to see how much real power Azmin Ali would have after the Muktamar tomorrow.

Especially when there is already a marked increase in the number of Chinese voters in the Shah Alam Parliamentary constituency.

Raveentharan a/l V Subramaniam, former Parti Keadilan Rakyat state assemblyman for Batu Uban in Pulau Pinang is in hot soup after the Inspector-General of Police instructed the Royal Malaysian Police for the former’s seditious post in hi Facebook account.

The IGP instructs the Bukit Aman Media Social Monitoring Team to haul up Raveentharan

Raveentharan, a Georgetown-based lawyer who was dropped from the candidates’ list during the 13th General Elections quickly apologised to Muslims in Malaysia saying that he did not mean to offend Muslims and that his best friends are Muslims.

Raveentharan is not new to controversies. In 2009, two SMS messages were made viral, sent by an unknown alleging that he sodomised and physically abused his ex-wife.  In 2013, he was dropped from PKR’s list of candidates for the 13th General Elections in favour of T Jayabalan.

Below are screen captures made from his Facebook account, courtesy of Dr Aznil Hisham:

Suddenly Raventharan is not so brave anymore. And as for his apology, I leave that to you and for the authorities to decide.

I would like to see him charged in courts.

  • Comments Off on Water: Azmin Should Stop Blaming Others
Mengapa? Why?

Mengapa? Why?

For the umpteenth time, the Petaling district in Selangor have to face waterless days because someone decided the rivers are the best place to dump chemical wastes.  What has the Selangor state government done about it? Apart from blaming the Department of Environment, the Menteri Besar, Azmin Ali has done nothing.

air

Investigation by the Selangor water authority has traced the pollution to its source and not only have taken water samples from the alleged source, but even named the source.  Yet, Azmin chose to blame the Department of Environment for being slow in acting against the perpetrator citing that the Selangor Water Management Board has no authority to act.

Therefore, let me introduce this seemingly alien State Enactment to the clueless Menteri Besar:

Selangor Water Management Board Enactment, 1999

Selangor Water Management Board Enactment, 1999

There are powers accorded to the Board that the state government.  Section 40(1) of the Enactment states that the Board has the responsibility to arrange and control all water resources. This includes buffer development, the management, use and the conservation of water sources while Section 41(3)(d) the Board is allowed to take whatever steps deemed necessary to protect water from contamination and the improvement of its quality. Which part of the Enactment that is not clear to either the Members of the Board, or Azmin himself?

Section 43(2) of the said Enactment empowers the Director of the Board to instruct by writing any activity, work, structure or building that is located within the flood zones, river reserves, or coastal areas that the Director deems to cause the degradation in quantity of water flow, quality of water, or to cause pollution to improvise or stop the activity, or to modify or to relocate the building.  The Director even has the power to enter such premises at any time and inspect as given by Section 43(3).

I have, in different previous posts (Water, Water Everywhere dated 28th October 2011 and Water, Water Everywhere Part 2 dated 4th November 2011), pointed out the need to protect the water catchment areas.  The value chain starts at water catchment areas and therefore it is imperative that state governments take steps to protect these areas by gazetting them under a specific Act for Water Catchment Areas, and not as it is now, under the Forestry Act.  We often find water resources polluted by human activities in these areas such as logging (legal and illegal), farming, plantation, manufacturing, animal husbandry and indiscriminate dumping of rubbish despite having these areas gazetted under the Forestry Act.

Lo! And behold! The power had already been given to the Board through Section 48 of the Enactment which you can read below (unless you are one of those who criticised Zahid Hamidi for his poor command of the English language while you cannot even speak in Bahasa Malaysia despite holding a Malaysian Identity Card):

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-16-44-23

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-16-44-38

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-16-44-49

So, what are you waiting for, Azmin? Why are you still playing the blame game? This is the effect of the incompetency of the Pakatan government that politicises every single thing that has now caused misery to hundreds of thousands of water account holders in Selangor.  And not only that, the arrogance of biblical proportions that your Executive Councillors and you have make you think that you have the right to play with the lives of those in need of water such as at the Serdang Hospital that had had to declare an emergency for being in dire need of treated water supply.

Screenshot of Free Malaysia Today's post on the emergency situation at the Serdang Hospital (http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/bahasa/2016/09/27/tiada-air-sejak-jumaat-hospital-serdang-dalam-darurat/)

Screenshot of Free Malaysia Today’s post on the emergency situation at the Serdang Hospital (http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/bahasa/2016/09/27/tiada-air-sejak-jumaat-hospital-serdang-dalam-darurat/)

Since being given the power to administrate, the Pakatan-led state government of Selangor has given the rakyat nothing but excuse upon excuse to NOT solve its water woes.  Starting with saying that there would be enough water and the Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant is not needed and one suggested by a Pakatan-suporter that there are better alternatives to the Langat 2 WTP.  Yet, nothing was done to solve the problem.  And only in February 2014 that the state government conceded that the Langat 2 WTP is needed after all, a realisation that caused former Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim his job as the rest of his administration and also party office holders did not subscribe to his view.

The Pakatan-led state government should pull its act together and stop giving excuses when it is empowered to protect water sources.  If it does not have the political will to do so, make way for the party that would.

Period!
