Perception is everything for Pakatan, even if it means flogging a dead horse. From recycling of issues to spinning crimes committed into acts of chivalry.
When Teoh Beng Hock died while in a MACC building, it was the BN’s fault although Beng Hock was being interviewed for things DAP office-holders were being investigated for. No matter that the BN loses out for not getting juicy stories of Pakatan corruption with the death of Beng Hock, BN is responsible although it sounds very illogical.
When Tokong Lim Guan Eng and when his henchman Phee Boon Poh were hauled up, again BN got the blame for politically-motivated acts. The same goes to the time the MACC raided Selangor’s Menteri Besar Incorporated for its fishy deals with UNISEL, BN was blamed.
It seems that the Pakatan is above the law. They get away with murder by blaming the BN for their failures. When Pulau Pinang gets inundated by countless flash floods, the BN gets blamed. When it is pointed that they should not blame the BN after being in power for two terms, they put the blame on God.
Yesterday, it was announced that the brother of a prominent Pakatan Member of Parliament was arrested together with two other staff of the said MP’s office for graft, the MP was quick to say that the arrests are politically-motivated.
This is the same MP who was recently implied by rabbit-toothed MP Pony Tua for being submissive to thugs.
Even someone implied by a fellow Pakatan member as allowing thugs to flourish blames the MACC for the wrongdoings of his own brother and staff members.
Chief Commissioner of the MACC Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad chided the MP, Sivarasa Rasiah, for making such claims. He said the action against the three individuals was conducted professionally in line with the efforts of the commission to rid the country of corruption.
“We stress that the arrest of the individuals is not related to politics. We are doing it professionally and not due to politics as the MACC has no time to be involved in politics,” he said to reporters in Terengganu yesterday.
When things don’t go their way, blame others. When it is members of the BN that get arrested, they would be quick to announce that the BN is corrupted.
When Najib Razak was investigated for the 1MDB fiasco, Pakatan was quick to ask Najib Razak to go on leave. No such calls have been made even when Pakatan criminals were being charged or found guilty on countless times by the courts.
Such is the impish behaviour of the goons from Pakatan. Yet, unbelievable as it may seem, there still are retards who continue to support and vote in these obstreperous clowns.
Before I continue, please let me congratulate a few people here. This Merdeka spirit is certainly in the air now.
I would like to congratulate the Malaysian SEA Games 2017 team for the highest Gold medal tally thus far. 145 Gold medals bagged out of 404 out for grabs. That accounts for 35.9 percent of Gold medals for this Games. The last time we had SEA Games here in Kuala Lumpur we could only manage 111 out of 391, and that made only 28.4 percent. If anyone were to put a “Rindu Zaman Mahathir” hashtag to KL2017, this would be the best time to do so.
Quick to claim credit for Malaysia’s victory is Azmin Ali who said that it was Selangor’s policies that had helped Malaysia achieve this victory. Someone should remind that this is not SUKMA or MSSM. This was a national effort and many Gold medals also came from people who are not part of Selangor.
Secondly, I would like to congratulate Mr Sotong himself. Yes, today the Appellate Court awarded him with RM10,000 which Pemuda UMNO’s Azwan Bro has to pay on top of the RM1.5 million he managed to squeeze out of 7,000 odd “donors” who believe in his dysfunctional NGO, that had gotten fellow party member Latheefa Koya’s boxers in knots, accusing Rafizi of getting help from the Deputy Prime Minister. Maybe Latheefa has realised that not once has Rafizi ever attacked the DPM openly, not after 21 August 2013. But with Najib Razak, no matter how many times he’s found guilty for telling lies, he keeps up his attacks. Maybe Rafizi is an UMNO agent as claimed. It does make you wonder doesn’t it? Only Rafizi can answer this.
My final congratulation goes out to the Judiciary system for proving time and time again that it is free from political influence. The same Court that gave Mr Sotong RM10,000 also found U-Turn Mahathir’s claim and insistence that Najib Razak is a ‘public officer‘ is a total FARCE. The verdict could have gone the other way round had this taken place before 2003, and those who love the “Rindu Zaman Mahathir” hashtag should again apply the hashtag to this event.
Now, back to the main story. Today, two people attacked the MACC using the same points. They are R Nadeswaran, a former journalist last seen wth the Sun Daily, and Eric Paulsen the lawyer who is never seen upholding the law and is always challenging the spirit of the Federal Constitution.
Nades in his piece said that a lot have been said in criticising the MACC previously but the MACC has never reacted in the same manner as it has reacted towards the Phee Boon Poh case. Back in those days he wrote, people used to ask why hadn’t the MACC gone for the “sharks” and the “whales” but instead get all the “small fries.”
But back in those days the MACC was the darling of the Opposition too. I am sure you would all remember how glory-hunter Lim Kit Siang told the world that the MACC’s crusade must be supported.
Let us not talk about the “back in those days”
stuff now shall we? Else we could also use the “Rindu Zaman Mahathir” hashtag here too and do comparisons on how many whales and sharks have been arrested by the MACC’s predecessors.
Lim Kit Siang et al stopped supporting the MACC’s crusade when several of theirs have been found to be whales and sharks too! Where is the consistency in fighting corruption here?
Eric Paulsen even added why must MACC take such an intolerant and extreme view when the issue being commented upon is of public interest?
For Eric Paulsen MACC is being intolerant as, as put by Nades, in the past there had been lots of opportunities for the MACC to sue people but never did.
Again, that’s in the past. I wonder if either Nades or Eric Paulsen realised that none of those making noise in the World Wide Web over MACC’s catching of small fries were under investigation, as Phee Boon Poh still is. He was released from remand and is still under investigation. He has not been exonerated from any offence nor has he had any charge dropped.
A Magistrate acts within the ambits of the law. He interpreted the law in his learned capacity. It was the High Court that had a different interpretation. And now the MACC is asking the Appellate Court (yes the one that made Sotong a victor and Mr U-Turn a loser) for its interpretation of the same.
And again, a reminder, Phee Boon Poh is still being investigated. He has not been charged and then found not guilty.
The remand would only have been illegal only if the MACC refuses to release Phee after the remand order was set aside.
As for Nades, a big fish such as a whale or a shark would be nothing less than having Najib Razak in the accused dock. Such view is already biased and myopic. Which is the reason I do not refer to him according to his nom de plume CITIZEN Nades, as I too, am a CITIZEN and he does not speak on behalf of me.
Nades asked why has the MACC not said anything about the SRC International which, accroding to Nades, was investigated by the MACC but they had nothing to show, implying that the investigation has already been concluded.
This is the peeve that I and a few defence bloggers have about the quality f our journalists – they don’t read. They often wait to be spoonfed with press releases and type away so that the agency they represent would be the first to publish it.
Back in early last year, the MACC had investigated the so-called involvement of Najib Razak in SRC International and had found nothing that could incriminate the Prime Minister. So on the road leading to Najib Razak it was ‘No Further Action.’
However, investigation papers have been opened for the people who actually ran SRC International and that is still in the investigation process. Must MACC tell everything about the case to the whole world?
So, there have you. Phee Boon Poh is being investigated so he should not make any statement trying to influence a court of public opinion. And neither Lim Guan Eng, nor Nades, nor Eric Paulsen should also try to unfluence a court of public opinion by saying that Phee Boon Poh was illegally detained.
Have we actually chosen the same people again and again and again for the past 60 years? Really?
As a law teacher he ought to know that we have not voted the same people. Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Razak, Tun Dr Ismail, Tun HS Lee, Tun Tan Siew Sin, Tun Sambanthan, Tun Manickavasagam, Tun Omar Ong, Tun Ghafar to name a few stalwarts from the Alliance and BN have stood down from elections.
I know for sure that for the past 48 years Lim Kit Siang has been an election candidate, from Kota Melaka to Gelang Patah, and now is planning to move to Pulau Pinang and/or Kedah. We also have a 92-year old dictator who has also offered to contest for Pakatan Harapan.
And as for popular vote, is that the legal voting system that we are practising here in this country? If so, why should we vote by constituency? I personally opine that Azmi Sharom is either one stupid person, or is maliciously misleading the people of Malaysia with his lies, and The Star, for publishing such claim, is equally guilty for abetting to the offence no matter the disclaimer.
Do you know really want to know what freedom is? Freedom is being free from ignorance, free from being stupid. And especially free from coordinated stupidity.
Keep Malaysia stupid-free for the next 60 years and more please!
In a somewhat anticipated move, Emperor Lim Kit Siang has come to the defence of his breadwinner, Tokong Lim Guan Eng.
In an article published by left-leaning Malaysiakini Kit Siang, in a reaction to MACC’s Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad’s ultimatum to Guan Eng, said that Dzulkifli should not fall victim to hubris and power, quoting Lord Acton’s axiom “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Quoting the US Department of Justice (DoJ) suit Kit Siang said that from page 339 to page 348 of the DoJ document that it traced the RM2.6 billion that made its way to Najib Razak’s account from 1MDB.
Pony Tua may have said something to reporters after signing the report but he should have resigned from the PAC and refused to sign should he have had any doubt or disagreement with the findings of the PAC.
He did not.
So why is Kit Siang contradicting his own people in the PAC that includes Pony Tua?
As for the axiom “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely“, Kit Siang should first and foremost look into the mirror and tell that to himself.
What about the gag order issued on DAP vice chairman M Kulasegaran after he gave the party’s Perak secretary Nga Kor Ming a dressing down over his alleged abuse of power? Did M Kula not dress down Nga Kor Ming because of the latter’s wife’s company, Ethan and Elton Sdn Bhd, was awarded the tender to tailor lounge suits for Ipoh city councillors when Pakatan Rakyat was in power in Perak?
The award was given despite the company having charged the highest price for the suits. Rivals also pointed to the fact that the company was registered with the Companies Commission Malaysia barely 42 days after Pakatan formed the state government.
And now that his son has been charged on two accounts of corrupt practices, why is he not giving the MACC the same support he accorded when the MACC was investigating Najib Razak? Ask Guan Eng to also look into the mirror and tell himself that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely!
When the MACC arrested and charged BN’s exco members in Johor and recently one of its powerful veterans, did BN cry like the DAP does? When Khir Toyo was charged in court and subsequently jailed for the same offence your son has committed, did BN cry like you?
So, remember what you said to the rakyat in 2015, Kit Siang? “This situation of police harassing MACC must stop!”
So now stop harrassing the MACC and let them do their work. What is it that you are so afraid of?
INTEGRITI tidak membawa apa-apa makna kepada Lim Kit Siang. Parasit raksasa ini hanyalah seekor parasit – binatang politik yang gemar mengambil kesempatan untuk hidup dengan memperkudakan apa jua yang boleh membuat beliau terus hidup dalam dunia politik demi kuasa dan cita-cita untuk menjadikan DAP kuasa politik unggul secara hakiki tanpa semestinya berada di tonggak kuasa.
Kalau dahulu Mahathir merupakan diktator yang zalim, perompak Bank Negara Malaysia, kini demi politik Mahathir dijadikan kaldai tunggangan beliau – maksum, suci dari segala dosa lampau.
Kita masih belum lupa betapa hipokritnya Lim Kit Siang berjabat tangan dengan Datuk Rohaizad Yaakob dari SPRM sebelum ini dengan harapan untuk memperkudakan SPRM dalam isu 1MDB. Siap menyeru kepada rakyat Malaysia untuk memberi sokongan kepada SPRM dalam siasatan mereka terhadap isu 1MDB. Lain pula pendiriannya kini.
Baru-baru ini dengan tertangkapnya Exco Pulau Pinang, Phee Boon Poh telah ditahan oleh SPRM dan direman kerana telah melakukan suatu perbuatan rasuah dengan menyalahguna kedudukan beliau sebagai seorang penjawat awam untuk memperoleh kepentingan untuk orang-orang lain.
Walaupun DAP yang meneraju pentadbiran kerajaan di Pulau Pinang telah baru-baru ini menandatangani Ikrar Bebas Rasuah SPRM, Lim Kit Siang telah menuduh SPRM sengaja menangkap Phee Boon Poh kerana hendak menutup perhatian terhadap gejala rasuah di negara ini.
Lim Kit Siang memberitahu bahawa beliau sudah 30 tahun mengenali Phee Boon Poh, maka mustahil Phee Boon Poh merupakan seorang yang mengamalkan rasuah.
Saya tidak hairan sekiranya Lim Kit Siang tidak mengenali Phee Boon Poh yang sebenar walaupun telah mengenalinya selama 30 tahun kerana Lim Kit Siang juga tidak mengenali anaknya Lim Guan Eng walaupun telah menjadi anak beliau selama 54 tahun.
SPRM sejak dinakhodai oleh Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad merupakan satu institusi yang amat aktif menangani gejala rasuah, dan tangkapan dilakukan tanpa memilih bulu. Semasa Exco Johor, Latif Bandi ditahan SPRM ia merupakan satu bukti yang kukuh bahawa SPRM adalah telus dan berlaku adil.
Seperti biasa, sesuai dengan sifat parasitnya, Lim Kit Siang terus memperkudakan isu tersebut dan menyeru agar Menteri Besar Johor juga turut pergi bercuti kerana membiarkan rasuah menular di dalam kerajaan negeri Johor.
Namun apabila diseru supaya anak beliau Lim Guan Eng yang sedang menghadapi dua pertuduhan rasuah itu bercuti kerana kesnya sama dengan kes bekas Menteri Besar Selangor Khir Toyo, beliau dengan lantasnya berkata bahawa kes Lim Guan Eng dan Khir Toyo adalah berbeza sedangkan kedua-duanya menyalahgunakan jawatan dan kedudukan untuk meraih keuntungan dan kepentingan untuk diri sendiri.
Untuk menggembirakan hati Lim Kit Siang (dan untuk menyelamatkan kedudukan), seorang lagi pemegang jawatan DAP juga terpaksa akur dan tidak menyuruh Lim Guan Eng bercuti dari jawatan Ketua Menteri kerana telah didakwa di mahkamah walaupun sebelum ini beliau sendiri berkata bahawa Lim Guan Eng tidak perlu bercuti dari jawatannya melainkan beliau telah didakwa di mahkamah.
Mungkin beliau pelupa sebab nama beliau Pony Tua.
Lim Kit Siang harus ingat bahawa SPRM serius dalam usaha membanteras gejala rasuah di negara ini dan tidak akan berkompromi dengan mana-mana pihak yang cuba memperkecilkan Suruhanjaya tersebut. SPRM bukannya milik Najib Razak mahupun Lim Kit Siang. Ianya bertindak untuk memelihara kepentingan rakyat, bukannya sebagai budak suruhan mana-mana pihak.
Oleh itu Lim Kit Siang harus menunjukkan sikap lebih bertanggungjawab memandangkan beliau merupakan seorang Ahli Parlimen dan veteran dunia politik yang rakan sebaya hampir kesemuanya telah mati kecuali Mahathir. Maka, beliau harus bersikap lebih matang dari ahli-ahli politik yang lebih muda dari beliau.
Dan nasihatilah semua wakil rakyat DAP dan dari parti-parti Pakatan yang lain supaya hentikan budaya sapu-menyapu untuk memperkayakan kocek sendiri kerana rakyat yang harus menanggung segala kenaikan kos akibat perbuatan rasuah mereka.
Baru sahaja sebut pasal sapu-menyapu, t-shirt SPRM pun kau naak sapu bawak balik selepas dibebaskan dari tahanan reman.
Teruk perangai DAP ni. Susah bila bos mereka sendiri tak sanggup nak lihat wajah hipokrit dalam cermin setiap hari.
Not too long ago Al Jazeera interviewed U-Turn Mahathir. In the interview Mahathir told all sorts of lies about the politico-economic situation of Malaysia. Among the things he said was:
“Malaysia will go to the dogs.”
Many disagreed and wondered why, that despite the good showing of economic growth, concurred by the world’s economic institutes, Mahathir said that Malaysia is now as doomed as when he was at the helm.
Mahathir’s 22 years of plundering the nation including allowing the Bank Negara to come to the brink of collapse during his tenure is now being investigated by a Royal Commission of Inquiry and the man is desperate to put the stops to it as it could lead him to become the oldest conman to be jailed.
Even PONY TUA, DAP MP for Petaling Jaya U-Tua wrote about Mahathir’s practice of cronyism once upon a time. Of course like the good Christian PONY TUA is, this is swept under the Pakatan carpet.
Mahathir has hinted that he might have to become Prime Minister again – a very scary thought. Almost all of us remember what it was like during his time to blog and be sent to Kamunting under detention without trial..
He covered that up later by naming a few people as potential Pakatan Prime Ministers including the useless Mat Sabu whose job in Pakatan is nothing more than to promote the “Planet of the Apes” franchise as well as hugging Chinese girls. Something he could not do when he was in PAS.
We all know that Mahathir knows only he is fit to become a Pakatan Prime Minister. He never stopped becoming the Prime Minister or power-broker until Najib Razak put a stop to it. And he is incensed by that.
Although he did not name himself a Prime Minister again, he has again hinted as being the person most qualified for the job. He is now Pakatan’s TOP DOG!
