To all my friends, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.


Thursday, December 24, 2015

Is the inevitable also going to happen to the MACC investigation report? Your guess is as good as mine.


Where is our hope?

As the Barisan government veer further and further from its objectives of looking after the interests of the people, and losing their trust, we are dismayed the 3 months old opposition coalition has yet to pull themselves together to offer an alternative government that deserves our trust. As pointed out by political scientist Dr Welsh, lack of cohesion and forward looking approach to problem solving is dragging Harapan from delivering hope.

We may react in several ways. We can switch off and let fate run the nation. We are just so sick of the immature and divisive talks by the politicians except for a few that we are tired of analyzing our affairs and offering answers. We are not solving any problems. There are no consolidated approach to confront our government. Everything from BERSIH to G25 are based on specific agendas.

Sometimes I wonder should we not form a new party based on common ideals of caring Malaysians with minimal politicking? All the problems are before us and we know the answers. Just that there is no body to materialize this hope. Sure, one more political party will not answer our woes. But what if it is the People's Party formed by the ordinary people for the people without hidden agendas? Too idealistic? A start must begin where our politicians has failed us.

Or we can throw our support upon Harapan even if it isn't ready or not the ideal coalition we want it to be, hope that it will grow in strength and experience. We need leaders who think differently from the UMNO, MCA and MIC mindsets. As they offer to lead we avail to them our trust and guidance.
Lastly we can let the devil continue another 5 years which will extend to 10, 15 and beyond as he discovers the art of perpetuating his control through manipulation of the vulnerable electorates and jailing his opponents. In this case prepare for life to become more restrictive as personal freedom and choices are controlled.

Throughout history we read of overthrow of corrupt governments and leaders by force if necessary when democratic process are frustrated. Malaysians are not ready nor capable of sacrificing our creature comforts for the larger goal of saving the country from ruin. We are good analysts and critics but when asked to put them into action we look away.

How many offshore and outstation voters will return to vote against BN come 2018? Will they say it's hopeless? Or will they place hope that it will be a watershed year for us and return in drove to cast their votes to overthrow BN democratically?

How many are praying hard for divine intervention to restore good governance? We are not only battling in the flesh but in the spiritual realm too. Believe me, Malaysia is being fought out between forces of evil and good. Do we have faith that good will triumph over the present evil? I believe our country is a paradise worthy of all support to be rescued from the evil regime. We cannot resign to giving up because we don't have the number yet. Through patience and persistence, covered by a daily dose of hope we shall defeat it and build a better nation. Never give up.

At last, he finally gets a ticking off.




 The Malaysian Armed Forces Veterans Association (PVATM) will not hesitate to impose disciplinary action against Ali Tinju if he continues to tarnish the image of the association.

According to PVATM executive council, Ali Tinju, whose real name is Mohd Ali Baharom, had often made racist statements which could cause disharmony among the multi-racial people in the country.

Apart from contradicting the practice and principles adopted by veterans of the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM), the action by Ali Tinju was also deemed to have given the ATM veterans a bad image.

"Racial sentiments propagated by Ali Tinju can affect efforts by the country's leaders to unite the people of all races and religions in Malaysia," PVATM said in a statement here today.

According PVATM, Mohd Ali had served in the Royal Malay Regiment for eight years and joined the association after registering with the Petaling, Selangor branch, but he was not an active member.

The Federal Territory and Selangor Malay Army Veterans Association established by Mohd Ali had already been dissolved by the Registrar of Societies on April 1, 2014, for failing to comply with certain rules and regulations under the Societies Act 1966, PVATM said.

Mohd Ali had previously sparked controversies through several actions, including by performing a 'butt dance' in front of Bersih co-chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan's house and staging a street demonstration during the Low Yat racial brawl.

Malaysia in dire straits and the worst to be affected will be the ordinary Malays. May God save us all.

This is what Syed Akbar Ali has to say:

How Much Longer Will The Malays Keep Quiet And Buat Tak Tahu?

Here is a comment from today about the situation in Malaysia :
Aeon Seremban is closing down 31 Dec 2015.
Aeon Penang is closing down too end Dec 2015.
Giant supermarket at Segamat is closing down too.
Baru balik dari Aeon Big Kota Damansara petang tadi lengang
Saya tanya cashier apasal sikit sgt org..dia senyum je.
Tempat parking kereta boleh main bola.
Memang sudah start slow down
In the next few weeks, close to 20,000 workers will lose their jobs in Malaysia.
Banks, finance houses, electronic companies, oil and gas companies, PMC and many more firms.
Just a few weeks ago, the Moron said if they did not collect that RM32b in GST taxes, the gomen will not have money to pay the salaries of Civil Servants.
Now they are saying that the salaries of Civil Servants will be increased next year.
Where are they going to get the money?
Today I heard it again that the Jalan Masjid India area is facing serious problems.
First of all that mamak retailer fellow linked to the Hippo is facing serious cash flow problems.
Over extended, borrowed too much money and now business being killed by GST.
Cashflow tight and that big shopping complex near Masjid India they took over is not generating enough cash.
Also the talk is the Hippo has cut him loose.
Does not want to be linked to a textile merchant ha ha ha.
Businesses are closing down in Masjid India.
"For Rent" signs are popping up.
Two bumi shoplots are now available for sale at the ground floor of Wisma Yakin alone.
(Melayu miskin dulu).
Tudung sellers cannot pay RM10,000 a month rental for their lots.
They are closing down.
They cannot even pay if there is a 50% discount ie RM5000 a month.
Business is very bad.
Full sized shops are renting for RM90,000 per month.
Less prominent spots are renting for RM40,000 per month.
Businesses operating here will be closing down or renegotiating their rentals.
All because of GST and Minimum Wages.
Many of those affected are Malay stall owners.
Melayu miskin dulu.
They are going out of business.
How much longer will the Malay people be able to bear this?
I think I have the answer.
Until their pockets literally become empty.
Like a car running out of gas and then just stopping dead on the road, so will the Malay people tolerate all this until they literally run out of money in their pockets.
Even then they may just say, 'takdir, cobaan, dugaan, kena sabar, banyaklah tawakkal, berdoalah, banyaklah beribadat' or something similar.

This is a very unique situation in the history of the human race.

Let's face it, there is no such thing as "moderate" in the vocab of UMNO anymore. To hold an anti-Christian seminar during this season of Christmas is most unthinkable.



Najib and all his pretenses about being moderate is nothing but one HUGE lie to mislead the rakyat and the world. His odious administration thrives only in corruption and endorsing racial & religious intolerance!!!No wonder, The Washington Post called him the Champion of Double-talks.

Quote:
Sarawak PKR chairman Baru Bian has urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to “stop his religious (moderation) pretence” and “throw the 1Malaysia lie into the bin”, for failing to end Christian-bashing in the country.

The old boy of Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), outraged that his alma mater had the gall to hold another anti-Christian seminar after the outcry last year, said the moderate Islamic country that Najib tried to portray to the world was “long dead”.

Baru said anti-Christian programmes “whipped up feelings of insecurity and fear in Muslim youths by demonising Christianity”.

“What started as Umno using Christianity as the bogeyman to divide and rule the people is leading to the radicalisation of Islam in this country, and the consequences will be catastrophic,” the Ba Kelalan assemblyman said.

He said the anti-Christian seminar the university held recently was also “odious and dangerous” and the university’s continued programme was due to the failure of the attorney-general (A-G) and police to act on it.

“Why did the A-G not pursue the matter last year?” Baru questioned the lack of action on last year’s seminar on the use of the word “Allah” and Christology.

The seminar featured speakers from Indonesia where the audience was told that undercover Christian priests had been sent to Malaysia under different guises, including working with Muslim children as football coaches, to proselytise and convert Muslims.

“It was reported then speakers at that May 2014 talk claimed Christians were betraying God unless they converted to Islam and called the New Testament gospels ‘fake’ as Jesus Christ was not divine.
“This is clearly blasphemous against Christians and the A-G had no reason to stop investigations.
“No wonder UiTM is not bothered about all the police reports made against it last year.”

Baru said the A-G’s failure, combined with the reported presence of a police officer at the latest seminar, it was no wonder the university continue to hold these seminars with impunity.

He said what appalled him even more was that instead of warning them against holding the seminar, the police sent a speaker to the event.

“What does the police force have to do with strengthening the ‘akidah’ of Muslims?

“They are supposed to keep law and order, not dabble in religious instruction.

I found this in the comic section of a newspaper today.

 One person comes to mind is Mohammed Rizalman Ismail, ex-Malaysian envoy to New Zealand.

What will it be like at the UMNO AGM?

Is UMNO as democratic as Najib wants us to believe with all this paranoid activities???  More realistically, UMNO is turning Najib to become a dictator by weeding out all the anti-Najib attendants of this AGM!!!!

Quote:
Just a reminder. Tan Sri Muhyiddin is organising his own gathering on the 7th December 2015 at 8:30 PM at the Dewan Kelab Sultan Sulaiman at Kg Bharu. Every Malaysian is welcome - tak kira your race, religion, political affiliation etc. It is time to close ranks. Show solidarity.

Plenty of coffee shop talk about the Perhimpunan Agong UMNO that begins on the 8th December 2015. It also depends on which coffee shop.

Here is a gist of the points floating around in one or two coffee shops. (If you have heard more things, please send in your comments. Thank you).

1. Only the president will talk. So far the deputy president (TSMY), one vice president (Shafie) are not allowed to speak. It will be a rubber stamp perhimpunan.
2. Delegates are being screened carefully. Only the extreme brown nosers will be allowed in. Speeches have already been screened. Cannot deviate from the script.
3. And get this folks, to make sure no one else gets into the proceedings, there will be different Security Passes issued everyday. This is really paranoid. This has never happened before. (May I suggest that the delegates be X-rayed before and after every session. Because aliens may abduct them in between and do bad things to them.)
4. Johor MB Khalid submitted a list of speakers and topics. All have been rejected. Khaled Noordin's choices are considered too risky. Huge parts of Johor UMNO are now considered 'enemy of the party'. And UMNO was founded in Johor.
5. Tun Dr Mahathir will attend the assembly. There are rumours that some people will boo Tun Dr Mahathir. Even to think of doing such things signifies that UMNO is already dead. If they boo the Moron instead, UMNO has a chance to live.
6. The 1MDB and the RM2.6 Billion donation are taboo issues. There will be absolutely no discussion or mention of the 1MDB or the RM2.6 Billion allowed at all.
7. The president's speech is going to focus on one big item : Cium b*nt*t. This shall be the main thrust of his speech.
The angle is kalau tak cium b*nt*t president, then tahun ini banjir akan lagi teruk, lebah kelulut akan jadi bisa balik, air pasang tak akan surut, Sungai Pari akan mengalir ke hulu,ekonomi Melayu merosot, no Malay unity, BR1M endangered, tambang LRT akan naik lagi, tambang ERL akan naik lagi, Tol akan naik lagi, Melayu akan kalah kuasa politik bla bla.
The main focus is just one line : 'Mesti cium b*nt*t presiden.'
7. It looks like PAS will be mentioned. If so it will be the first time that PAS will be mentioned in a Perhimpunan Agung as possible UMNO partners. That shows exactly how ridiculous UMNO has become. Talk is Bawang and Jin have already got their gold dinars. < Unquote>

Reject the National Security Council Bill 2015


Sign the petition here ....

The National Security Council Bill 2015

How oppressive or stringent is the recently-passed National Security Council Act? Is it enacted strictly to combat terrorists who pose a national security threat to the country? Unfortunately, Najib and his administration have certain ulterior motives. This draconian act will give him broader power to deal with any threats even against dissidents, whistle-blowers, critics and also arrest and imprison those patriotic Sabahans and Sarawakians who demand for secession from Malaysia!!!!All these boil down to one thing-Najib is turning into a dictator and he has every intention to rule the country with an iron fist-like it or not!!!!!

Quote:

National Security Council Bill 2015
The Bill was passed in Parliament on Thursday, December 3, 2015. Primarily intended to combat
terrorism, a National Security Council (NSC) will be established and headed by the Prime Minister under the law. It encompasses broad powers to declare ‘security areas’ and arrest, detain and seize property without warrant.

Why are we concerned?
1. Wide powers under clauses — lack transparency, accountability and respect for individual rights Clause 6: NSC consists of PM, DPM, Minister of Defence, Minister of Home Affairs, Minister of Communication and Multimedia, Chief Secretary to the Government, Chief of Defence Forces, and the Inspector General of Police. All are appointed by PM and report directly to the PM.
Clause 18 (1): PM has full discretion to decide where is “security area”
Clause 18 (3) and (4): Initial declaration of “security area” lasts for six months but may be renewed by PM indefinitely
Clause 22-30: Security forces can arrest without warrant; stop and search; enter and search premise; take possession of any land, building or movable property.
Clause 37: All NSC’s affairs are done is absolute secrecy
Clause 38: No action or lawsuit can be brought against NSC
The term “national security” was not clearly defined. It can be “economic stability,” “national unity,” or “political stability.”

2. Hasty passage of the Bill
The Bill was presented to Parliament and passed within two days. Member of Parliaments, lawyers and human rights activists have raised concerns over the lack of consultation. Alor Star MP called it the “death to democracy in Malaysia.”

3. Constitutional validity — overstepping Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA)’s powers?
The Bill effectively provides the PM emergency powers without the need to declare a state of emergency under Article 150 of the Federal Constitution, which was a power previously exclusive to the YDPA. The extensive powers also mimic those under the Emergency Ordinances, a law that was repealed by the parliament in 2011.

Conclusion
The potential abuse of the law is unsettling. Never had we a law that provides wider and unfettered powers in the hands of a few executive elites. Since there are already enough laws to combat terrorism in Malaysia, a new law that further encroaches on individual liberty is grossly alarming.
The rash manner in which it was passed only fuels speculation on the real basis behind it. We strongly urge the government to withdraw the National Security Bill 2015.

More non-Chinese in SJKCs?

There is a steady increase in the enrolment of non-Chinese pupils in Chinese schools in Malaysia over the last five years. As the fertility rate of Chinese Malaysians continues to drop, so does the enrolment of Chinese pupils in Sekolah Jenis Kebangssan Cina (SJKC), but the reverse is happening with non-Chinese pupils.

In just five years, the ratio of non-Chinese to Chinese pupils studying in SJKCs has doubled. In 2010, there was one non-Chinese for every 10 Chinese pupils in SJKCs, and this has grown to two non-Chinese for every 10 Chinese pupils in 2014.

The number of Chinese pupils in SJKC has reduced from 539,621 in 2010 to 483,852 in 2014 while the number of non-Chinese pupils increases from 72,443 in 2010 to 87,463 in 2014. This shows a 10.3 per cent drop in Chinese pupil enrolment at SJKCs.

On the other hand, non-Chinese pupil enrolment went up by 20.7 per cent. The sharp and steady increase is despite pressure by opponents of SJKCs asking for the closing of vernacular schools in Malaysia as they purportedly lead to racial segregation.

This shows that fellow citizens of non-Chinese descent, especially non-Chinese parents of children in Chinese schools, are not buying into this fallacy. It is also a testimony of their confidence in SJKC, which a person of high political office has finally acknowledged.

In endorsing Chinese schools, Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem hit out at Putrajaya’s policy of not recognising the Unified Examinations Certificate (UEC), calling it stupid and senseless.
The UEC is a standardised examination taken by students in all 60 Chinese independent secondary schools in the country. A number of international universities, including the prestigious Oxford University in the United Kingdom, recognise the qualification.

However, Putrajaya does not recognise the UEC on the ground it does not follow the national education curriculum. Adenan’s argument is that failure to recognise the UEC will lead to a brain drain and exodus of talent to countries which recognised the qualification.


While this move by Sarawak has resulted in a tug of war between the state and federal government over the recognition of the UEC, SJKCs continue to face several problems.
Based on the national census in 2010, fertility rate of the Chinese declined the most among all races. It has declined from 2.6 per cent  in 2000 to 1.5 per cent in 2010.

Figures from Education Ministry show that up to 2011, 96 per cent of Chinese pupils are in Chinese primary schools, an increase of 4 per cent compared with 92 per cent in year 2000. Due to the low fertility rate, the number of Chinese pupils in Chinese primary school has reduced by 55,769 in the past four years while non-Chinese pupils increase by 15,020.
The drop in Chinese pupil enrolment is leading to the closure of smaller SJKCs in remote areas. However, the situation is different in urban areas as non-Chinese have pushed up the pupil populations in these schools.

Close to half of pupils in two Chinese primary schools in Kuala Lumpur are non-Chinese, with SJKC St Teresa having 45 per cent non-Chinese pupils and SJKC Sentul Pasar Peng Meng having 40.8 per cent of non-Chinese pupils.

Non-Chinese pupils in SJKC Sam Yok and SJKC Chiao Nan are in the range between 30 and 40 per cent  while non-Chinese pupils in four Chinese primary schools – SJKC Chung Hwa Girl’s School, SJKC Kong Hon, SJKC Sentul and the newly opened SJKC Wangsa Maju  – are between 20 and 30 per cent.

The other problem faced by SJKCs is their locations in business district and they face traffic congestion. Plans are afoot to relocate SJKC St Teresa, SJKC Lai Ming and SJKC Imbi to overcome this problem and change the distribution of SJKCs in Kuala Lumpur.

Is Adenan Satem crossing a bridge too far?

I believe Adenan is pushing the envelope. First, the recognition of the UEC. Then came the recognition of English as a medium of instruction alongside BM and now, the move for full autonomy. He wants to recall all the powers taken away by the federal government, and that PutraJaya should adhere to the MA63.

 CM ADENAN : "We will also insist on Full Autonomy for Sarawak. We want the Malaysia Agreement to be honored in all aspect. Let us be reminded that we are people who have enjoy peace and prosperity...janganlah kita biar ia tergugat...I can assure you we will take care of Sarawak the best way we can.  Let us dedicate ourselves to the service of Sarawak, our country and the people..."

Are we on the threshold of World War III ??


 So Turkey shot down a Russian jet. Putin is angry and he likens this to 'a stab in the back from a friend.' Russia will now retaliate by bombing Turkey. Being a member of NATO, the Americans will not sit idly by and will support Turkey by entering Syrian airspace to shoot down Russian jets.

China, an ally of Russia, too join in the fray by attacking the American fleet in the South China Sea as a show of old communist fraternity. The Chinese soon built a well fortified base on the Spratly Islands. 

The Americans in the meantime will call upon their closest ally, the Philippines, to render aid. The ASEAN region, which has long been declared a zone of neutrality, is now in doubt, as each country is slowly sucked into the conflict. The Americans, inevitably, has opened up two fronts.

Meanwhile, China called on the North Koreans to contain the Japanese and the South Koreans while they focus on the South China Sea against the Americans.  This was  to ensure that Japan and South Korea who are allies with the US would not launch any attack on Chinese soil.  The North Koreans, who long despise the South Koreans and the Japanese, begin to move their large navy into the Tsugaru Straits. The invasion is broken up into two, with one group heading north to capture Sapporo in Hokkaido, while another group head south via Honshu to capture the city of Tokyo. Japan is unable to defend itself as they are being constrained by their 'peace time' constitution. Japan capitulate.

Meanwhile in the middle east, Russia receives a boost from Iran. The Americans continue to supply arms and military hardware to ISIS to help them fight the Iranians and the Russians. In order not to be left out, Hezbollah, sends in its men to support its Shiite brothers, the Iranians. This was in retaliation for an attack by ISIS on the Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut on November 12 2015. However, the Kurds/YPGs/Peshmergas who have been gaining substantial ground prior to the downing of the Russian jet, are now sandwiched between the Turks in the north, and ISIS in the south who found themselves rejuvenated with arms supplied by the Americans and the Saudis. Defeat for the Kurds is imminent.

 Hamas in support of Hezbollah, start to re launch rocket attacks into Israel.  This was to ensure that Israel will not take this opportunity to attack Hezbollah since most of their men would have joined the Iranians in their fight against ISIS.  Israel activates its Iron Dome.

France, in the meantime, is caught in a quandary, but finally decides to join the Americans. The Russians feel that after Turkey, this is yet another 'stab in the back from a friend.' In the meantime, the European Union is in disarray as states go loggerheads on the handling on the refugee crisis and it is now every state for itself.  As a result of the bombing of Turkey by the Russians, this has created more refugees, this time from Turkey.  In view of the weakened state of the EU, ISIS cells all over Europe were activated simultaneously with attacks on civilians.  Thousands perished.

As the conflict escalates on the two fronts, the Russians finally throw in their Ace of Spade, the intercontinental ballistic missiles.

I woke up with perspiration trickling down the side of my face and quickly went to the balcony to breathe in a gust of fresh morning air, and I noticed that the sky was still blue and the birds were happily chirping away.

The unenviable position of the Americans

Uncle Sam is in an unenviable position as far as the Middle East conflict is concerned.

With the atrocities committed by ISIS, the US is now blamed for the loss of innocent Syrian and Iraqi lives by being the initial co-sponsor of this militant group. The aim was to topple President Bashar al-Assad who was responsible for the killing of his own people by the thousands using chemical bombs and ISIS was thought to be a good idea at that time to topple the regime.

On the other hand, the Americans could have laid back and said, "This is not our problem", human rights groups and other nations will step up the criticisms on American human rights stand. Some will even called it the American hypocrisy.

Well, looks like, DAMNED IF YOU DO AND DAMNED IF YOU DON'T.

Will Najib do what President Fran├žois Hollande did?

It's sad that an innocent person has lost his life to a bunch of religious fanatics. Now the BIG question, will Malaysia send in its fighter jets to bomb the daylights out of these b******s or will Bernard Then become just another statistic because he is Chinese. If France is bombing ISIS in Raqqa where the latter's headquarters is located, in retaliation for the killings of its citizens, I am sure Malaysia can do the same with Abu Sayyaf. What say you Najib? What say you Hishamuddin?

RIP Bernard Then

To all my Hindu friends, Happy Diwali ....

May the light of this day continues to shine upon you and your family.


The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement

Important decisions, in Malaysia's case, are already made-to-measure by others.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty legislation is 5,554 pages long, twice that of Obamacare and nearly 3 feet high, filled with 2 million words, it measures exactly 2 feet high and weighs an amazing 100 pounds.

Anyone, thinking Malaysia's Administrators, much less the Politicians, will read that....needs their heads examined.

The most divided nation ....

Let's study how divided we are and the outcome should put us into the Guinness Book of Records for being the most divisive nation.

1. First, we have the Bumiputra and the non-Bumiputras.
2. Then, we have Muslims and the non-Muslims.
3. Within the Muslim community, a sub-division is seen between Sunnis and Shiites.
4.  Amongst the Muslims, it is divided between UMNO Muslims, PAS Muslims and PKR Muslims.
5. If that is not bad enough, we are further divided between Semanjung and East Malaysia with different set of laws, polices and rulings.

6.  With the dichotomy of Bumiputra in place, it is sub-divided between UMNO bumiputras and non-UMNO bumiputras.

Now, the latest, a proposal is being made to divide the nation further and that is, trolleys at supermarkets will be marked for Muslims and non-Muslims usage.  If that is the case, what about the shopping baskets?  What about the plastic bags available to customers to put their purchase in?  I am totally lost for words.  Read news article HERE.


Quite frankly, at the supermarkets, why don't we trade in different currencies as well, one for Muslims and the other, for non-Muslims?  If this proposal was to be adopted and implemented, I am definitely going to shop elsewhere where I don't have to endure religious discrimination.  The authorities must think that the non-Muslims are suffering from some form of skin disease, like leprosy, that the Muslims must avoid at all costs.  What an insult !!!

Just thinking off the cuff.  What if the Hindus too demand for beef-free trolleys?

Dayak professionals joining DAP a big blow to BN parties.


Something must be good about the DAP. Despite state leaders proclaiming that Malayan-based parties like the DAP are not welcome to Sarawak, a group of 12 Dayak professionals have joined the predominantly Chinese-based party.  

There must be a very strong reason why the group joined the DAP which cannot reward them with positions and contracts and other “goodies”.

Therefore, their move came as a big surprise to Sarawakians, especially to PKR and Dayak-based BN parties.

The 12 are Richard Lias, secretary general of Dayak National Congress; Philip Tero, founding member of Sarawak Dayak Graduates Association; Paul Raja, lawyer and until recently Bintulu PKR division chairman; Baba Emperan, a businessman; Ali Basah, lawyer and former PKR member; Frankie Bendidang, former walikota of Kapit and a former Kapit PKR division chairman;  Douglas Alau, former university lecturer; David Kalom, former deputy director of Mara;  Granda Aing, businessman and former PKR member;  Robert Tella, former lieutenant commander in the navy; Edward Agong, former teacher; and Gabriel Ajan, a Petronas employee.

It’s reliable learnt that another group of Dayak professionals will join DAP later. It’s understandable if they had joined PRS and SPDP. As professionals they would find their political life very bright in these two parties.

They would certainly be given a “red carpet” welcome as they would help boost the morale of the two parties, especially when some of them had abandoned PKR.
So, many are therefore wondering why, of all political parties, they chose DAP? And why did some resign from PKR to join DAP?

You certainly cannot accuse them of being opportunists, because DAP can only share with them the party’s struggle for fairness and justice, hard work and sweat and not “goodies”.

Lawyer Paul Raja, who spoke on their behalf explained that they joined DAP because they realised that DAP was the best party at the moment through which the Dayaks can fight for their rights.

He said that they saw a “bigger” hope in DAP than in PKR.

“We have deliberated and thought about joining DAP for some time. We finally realised that the best vehicle for us at the moment is to work with DAP – a national party.

“We do not want to join local parties because they are the ones who are suppressing Sarawakians and they are working with BN parties in Malaya,” said Paul, who was until recently was the Bintulu PKR chairman.

The local parties he referred to are Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP), Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP), Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras) and United People’s Party (UPP).

Paul said that they saw the Dayak community not only being marginalised, but also forgotten and the whole blame lay on the shoulders of Dayak leaders in BN.

“Although in the beginning Dayaks were a potent force, as time goes by through political manoeuvrings and political divide and rule, slowly we see the Dayak community descending into a spent political force.

“Now we are slowly seeing that as far as politics is concerned, the Dayak community has become irrelevant, and it is almost going into oblivion.

“We joined DAP to restore our dignity and rights,” he said.

He said that there was something wrong with the Dayak community and he blamed the current state of the community to the inefficiency of Dayak political leaders.

“We can’t blame the community for its communal predicament and problem, simply because the Dayaks are just following.”

The blame should be on the leaders who were duty-bound and elected by the people to speak on issues affecting the rights and welfare of the Dayaks, but they chose to keep quiet, he said.
Paul said: “Our leaders have gone to the extent of trying to suppress members of our community and Dayak non-governmental organisations from voicing their problems.  

“By so doing, they have become the enemies of the people.

“With this great concern we have as a group today decided to join DAP because we know that DAP is a national party. We know for a fact that DAP is fighting for the rights of all Malaysians.”

At the press conference, Paul handed over a seven-point “DAP Dayak Blueprint” to state DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen.


The blueprint which will be their manifesto in the coming state elections touches on issues which are close and dear to the hearts of the Dayaks.

This what Canadians think of the new leaders in the cabinet. Kudos to Justin Trudeau.


The PEMANDU report on the need to bring English back to our education system.

Now read the full news report and view the three videos released by PEMANDU that highlight the urgency of bringing English back into the mainstream of our education system. The current condition is what I would describe as pathetic that secondary students could not even string a simple sentence nor the ability to read or write the language. A survey was done and 90% of the respondents agree it is time for the government to urgently address the issue. Are we too late already?

The PEMANDU report.

Teacher Hasnah Omar from SK Bukit Beruntung in Selangor says even to get one person to read in class takes a lot of patience. A series of video clips by Pemandu seeks to drive home the importance of mastering English language, following a survey which showed the poor grasp of the language among school students. – GTP Roadmap Youtube, November 6, 2015. - See more at: http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/pemandu-videos-underscore-need-for-english-proficiency#sthash.AHuhm7Cx.dpuf

Penang to give bonus, waive assessment rates to tackle rising cost of living

The Penang Government has tabled a deficit RM1.1 billion Budget 2016, the state’s fifth straight deficit since Budget 2012 tabled in Nov 2011. The deficit was an increase by 11.36 per cent or RM112.83 million from last year’s RM992.8 million.

Among highlights, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng estimated that his administration would spend RM20.7 million to pay the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and fund the replacement of old government vehicles. “The government has accumulated RM880 million in reserves in the last seven years, compared with RM373 million in reserves accumulated over 50 years until 2008 by the previous Barisan Nasional (BN) administration,” said Lim.

The RM220 million contribution to the state Consolidated Development Fund (CDF), he added, was to fund the Penang Government’s RM216 million Budget for affordable housing schemes in the state.
Budget 2016 sees RM346 million for development expenses, a hike by 53.4 per cent or RM120 million from this year’s RM225 million. The state allocated RM952 million for supply expenditures inclusive of RM26 million for liability expenses.

Penang Opposition Leader Jahara Hamid said that she would work on the details and debate on various aspects of the Budget when the State Assembly resumes business on Monday November 16 after the Deepavali holidays.

“It’s an accounting fiasco. The budget was inflated to be in deficit. Anybody can do that,” claimed Jahara.

“The state budget was deliberately overestimated to hoodwink the public into believing the Pakatan Government had saved more money than the BN Government.”

She charged that the Chief Minister was trying to portray his administration as better finance managers than the previous administration. “The Budget was clearly pre-planned to make the state government look like as if it had saved money,” she added.”

My, my, this certainly does not look good for Najib. A letter from the International Court of Justice.





Our authorities must have taken leave of their senses. Because of that idiotic ruling on attire into government offices, including hospitals, it has cost the life of a 2-year old toddler.

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE !!!!

Two-year-old toddler denied treatment as his mother’s pants was apparently too short.

Europe is in a big mess now.


A Female Physician in Munich, Germany sends a message to the world ...

Yesterday, at the hospital we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other Munich hospitals is unsustainable.  Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals. 

Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and, we, women are refusing to go among those animals, especially from Africa.  Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse.  Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units.

Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat them.  If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash.  This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children.  They abandon the children with pharmacy staff with the words, "So, cure them here yourselves!"  So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.

Truly we said openly : Where are all those who welcomed these refugees in front of TV cameras, with signs at train stations?!  Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will definitely not be able to get rid of them.

Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million.  Now it will be at least 3.5 million.  Most of these people are completely unemployable.  A bare minimum of them have any education.  What is more, their women usually do not work at all.  I estimate that one in ten is pregnant.  Hundreds of thousands of them have brought along infants and little kids under six, many emaciated and neglected.  If this continues and Germany re-opens its borders, I'm going home to the Czech Republic.  Nobody can keep me here in this situation, not even double the salary than at home.  I went to Germany, not to Africa or the Middle East.

Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the cleaning woman, who for 800 Euros cleans every day for years, and then meets young men in the hallways who just wait with their hands outstretched, want everything for free, and when they don't get it, they throw a fit.

I really don't need this!  But I'm afraid that if I return, that at some point it will be the same in the Czech Republic.  If the Germans, with their nature cannot handle this, there in Czechia it would be total chaos.  Nobody who has not come in contact with them has not idea what kind of animals they are, especially the ones from Africa, and how Muslims act superior to our staff, regarding their religious accommodation.

For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseased they brought here, but, with so many hundreds of patients every day, this is just a question of time.

In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed over an 8-month old on the brink of death, which they had dragged across half of Europe for three months.  The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany.  They physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU.  Nobody has been punished.

The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we know about it through email.  What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife?  Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurse's face and so threatened her with infection?  At a minimum he'd go straight to jail and later to court.  With these people, so far, nothing has happened.

And so I ask, where are all those greeters and receivers from the train stations?  Sitting pretty at home, enjoying their non-profits and looking forward to more trains and their next batch of cash from acting like greeters at the stations.  If it were up to me, I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital's emergency ward, as attendants.  Then, into one building with the migrants so they can look after there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today are in every hospital here in Bavaria, and without medical help.

Monday Humour

It's been quite a while since I ceased my Monday Humour column, not because there are no humour to post, but on the country, there are tons of it especially coming from the clowns in PutraJaya that I found it difficult to pick the appropriate ones.

Okay, here is one, which I know you guys are going to get a kick out of it.  Idris Jala, the CEO of PEMANDU, said that we are so transparent that it caught a senior Singaporean minister by surprise.  And with that, he felt UMNO has now been vindicated from all corrupt dealings.  Did he realise that the Singaporean minister could mean it as a insult?  Well, if he wants to feel 'syiok sendiri', who are we to stop him,  I guess it's good to let him have his day after all the brickbats he has been receiving from the public.

I have been down so badly with the haze, I guess I could do with a laugh or two sometimes.  Thumbs up, Idris, you just made my day.

You may read the joke here.

October 22 2015, a date that will live in infamy!

My apologies for not blogging of late as I have been held back by work and if that was not bad, I was brought down by the haze, again.  Feeling much better today,  the first thing I would like to address is Lim Kit Siang's suspension from Parliament.

Now this is what Liew Chin Tong has to say.

Kit Siang's battle is not over yet.

Over the course of the last half century, numerous attempts by the ruling elite to silence Lim Kit Siang had failed. The latest – suspending him from Parliament for half a year – will not silence Kit Siang’s voice for the nation.

On the contrary, 50 years after he started as a political novice with a yet-to-be-registered party then – the Democratic Action Party – Kit Siang is not done yet. The powers-that-be still want to silence him because they know many Malaysians listen to Kit Siang. The people trust Kit Siang more than they do Barisan Nasional.

So, what did Kit Siang do at the Parliament this week? He was merely doing his duty as a Member of Parliament, i.e., to voice his opinions and to state facts. He was commenting on Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin’s role in preventing the Public Accounts Committee to hold its meetings after chairperson Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed was elevated to the government’s frontbench.

The PAC was at the height of investigating the 1MDB scandal with the troubled company’s past and present CEOs were about to appear before the Committee. The hearings never took place.

The series of moves by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak – sacking of Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, and a strategic cabinet reshuffle – were aimed at averting a crisis that could possibly lead to Najib being charged in court.

Four Barisan Nasional MPs who sat on the PAC were promoted to the front bench in an attempt to stall the investigations into the 1MDB scandal. They are Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed, Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican, Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin and Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau.

The Committee has still a Deputy Chairman and nine MPs who could still form the quorum for the Committee to carry on its investigation. At that critical juncture, Tan Sri Pandikar prevented the PAC from meeting and carrying out its duties.

Nur Jazlan could have resisted the offer and continue to lead the PAC. Speaker Pandikar could have ruled in favour of those who want to see the Parliament playing its true check-and-balance role by not preventing the PAC to function.

Jazlan and Pandikar lack a sense of history. They could have changed the course of history for our nation. They could have sided with the rakyat, and not with scandal-ridden Najib. They missed their date with history.

Whereas Kit Siang has proven his worth. He is but one of many casualties of the 1MDB scandal; from Gani to Muhyiddin, to Tony Pua, MACC officers, former Special Branch Deputy Director, and many more.
The veteran DAP leader has said, “What I said when I sought clarification from the MP for Sepang, Mohamed Hanipa bin Maidin who was speaking on the debate on the appointment of the Chairman of Public Accounts Committee was whether he agreed that the Speaker has no powers under the Standing Orders to stop the Public Accounts Committee, in the absence of a PAC Chairman, from continuing with its 1MDB investigations and which was therefore an abuse of power.”

Speaker Pandikar’s usual refrain is that MPs can move a motion against his decision “which is ultimate”. In a Westminster Parliamentary setting in which the Government has majority, the Opposition would not have the number to censure the Speaker.

Even if Kit Siang were to be subjected to this ordeal, he should be given due process through a Committee of Privileges hearing. DAP Legal Bureau Chief Gobind Singh explained to Parliament that it is clear that in the case of alleged contempt of Parliament such as the case of Kit Siang, the Speaker cannot bypass the process of an inquiry by a committee.

Standing Order 80A “Notwithstanding the provisions of Standing Order 80 relating to the Committee of Privileges, in any case where it appears to the House that there has been the commission, whether by a member or by any other person, of any acts, matters or things as are made punishable as contempt under the Houses of Parliament (Privileges and Powers) Ordinance 1952, the House may appoint a committee to summarily enquire into such a case and appropriate action in accordance with the said Ordinance.”

I told Parliament that the Speaker should reverse terrible precedents set by this Parliament previously that a member could be “summarily executed” through the brute force of Government majority in the form of a motion and a vote in the House.

Lest we forget, Opposition MPs such as Fong Po Kuan in the year 2000, Karpal Singh (2004), Gobind Singh (2010), Anwar Ibrahim (2010) and N. Surendran (2013) were suspended in this manner.

In the more democratic Westminster parliaments, suspensions are generally meted out for several days to maintain the order of the House if it is relating to the conduct of MPs in the House. In the British parliament, suspensions are also used against MPs who were involved in financial improprieties, not for exercising free speech without fear or favour.

In Malaysia, suspension is just a punitive tool to silence members of the Opposition. But Kit Siang will not be cowed. He told Parliament that his sacrifice would not be meaningless because it would make the people more aware of the embarrassing 1MDB scandal.

Fifty years in politics, he is still the man the powers-that-be feared and still the ultimate symbol of defiance and anti-establishment. Barred from entering Parliament for half a year, Kit Siang is on a new journey to meet Malaysians of all walks of life.

Plans are underway to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of DAP on 18th March 2016, as well as the 50th Anniversary of Kit Siang’s entry into politics on 1st December 2015, and his 75th birthday on 20th February 2016.

We shall not be moved. We shall remember the words of Thomas Paine, an 18th century philosopher activist, “the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph”.

Tajuddin Abdul Rahman may have 'slapped' up a storm


Umno’s Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman should carry out his promised threat to slap an ethnic Chinese if he is willing to face the consequences, Taman Tun Dr Ismail DAP member Zulhazmi Shariff said today.
In the wake of the interracial storm, Zulhazmi told the deputy agriculture and agro-based industry minister to be mindful of his influential position as the people will hold him to his promises.
“My personal stand, I ask that he slap first. Don’t just talk, slap first, then we’ll see what happens,” the DAP man challenged Tajuddin in a news conference here.
Zulhazmi called on Tajuddin to rein in his personal sentiments if he wanted to be seen as a “leader and as an administrator”.
Also at the same news conference was Pahang DAP chairman Tengku Zulpuri Shah Raja Puji, who called on the Perak mufti to advise the Pasir Salak MP on the dos-and-don’ts as a Muslim leader.
Yesterday, Tajuddin was recorded by news portal Malaysiakini as issuing a warning to Chinese Malaysians that they were asking to be slapped for complaining about issues in the country to a third-party, ostensibly in response to the aftermath of last month’s “red shirt” rally that prompted China’s ambassador to Malaysia to comment that Beijing would not hesitate to speak out against any threat that may affect the country’s ties with Malaysia.
“I want to warn the Chinese Malaysians, don’t think when you have a problem, you want to complain — just a little bit also complain — that there will be people to protect them.
“Nak kena lempang macam itu,” the deputy minister was quoted as saying.
Earlier today, MCA also said that it will issue a formal protest note to Barisan Nasional and was also seeking an apology from Tajuddin as the latter’s statement had “seriously” insulted the Chinese community.
However, Tajuddin has since accused Malaysiakini of misquoting him in its article, which had translated the Bahasa Malaysia portion of his remarks to mean that he was threatening to slap the Chinese.

I hope our dudheads know what they are doing ....

So, the China Ambassador to Malaysia, H E Huang Hui Kang, has been summoned to appear at our foreign ministry office today to explain for his presence and the statements made by him during his recent visit to Petaling Street.  Knowing these dudheads, they might just screw up the meeting. As a reminder ...


The nation must thank Jibby's servant, Jamal Yunus, for adding another feather in Najib's cap.  Already with local lawsuits, foreign media jabs (with evidence), the haunting of the Altantuya's murder, Sirul's revelation; UK, Swiss, USA and French enforcement investigations, and now ..... CHINA??  This guy truly must be having a death wish of sorts.


No more public demonstrations?

Street demonstrations should not be repeated as they are not Malaysian culture", so said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. Helloooo ..... Malaysian street demonstrations against the government of the day were not the brainchild of Bersih, DAP, PKR or PAS. Rightly or wrongly, it was you people in UMNO who started it when you demonstrated against the British proposed Malayan Union, but then we added colour to it that's all, and you guys followed.

250,000 at the Red Shirt rally. Must be the figment of someone's imagination.

Annuar Musa claimed that there were 250,000 present at the Red Shirt rally yesterday, but this report proves otherwise.



Rafidah Aziz speaks ....

DEAR MALAYSIANS ...wherever you are..

Many of you are probably in the same frame of mind as I am now..feeling nervous and jittery about September 16.

I have been told about people stocking up on food. Reminders not to be in the City tomorrow. That there will be roadblocks ...So, instead of our Malaysia day being a day for celebration, for taking our families out for meals, to go to the malls...to do window shopping...in short to enjoy the holiday ..we are of two minds about whether to shut ourselves in the house, or risk getting into traffic jams and confronted by roadblocks.

HOW ON EARTH HAVE WE COME TO THIS SITUATION ?


The emergence of the divisiveness of the " US " and "THEM" & the " WE " and "THEY" syndrome.
If you dare voice something not seen to be aligned ,wth what is determined "acceptable" ,however rational and correct what you said may be, it will be DEEMED as " in opposition " and therefore " against" whoever it is directed to.


THAT has now snowballed into groups of "THEM " and "US"...made worse by racial undertones and insinuations. 


Can constructive criticism and voices from the heart NO longer be tolerated ? Must there always be the cattle herd mentality, that follows blindly without rationalizing and understanding of all things before us ? 

Must we propagate a new culture of personality cults, and relegate the Nation to a low priority ? Must it always be "either you are with us or you are against us "...reminiscent of Bush , who eventually triggered the havoc that continue to plague Iraq ...and the neighbouring countries.


When people decide to demonstrate through group action, it is vital that they fully understand WHAT EXACTLY it is that they are trying voice out, and demonstrate against..


It SHOULD be about issues that are important to the country and to the vast majority of Malaysians..
CERTAINLY NOT merely in retaliation to something others did...and worse still to use the race card as the excuse.


We are living now in confusing, worrying and troubling times..


And there are still those who seem rather callous about calling for a halt to actions which can only worsen the situation.
    

Is there such a dearth of Leadership which can guide people to do the right things...to prioritize the interests of the Nation..and the interests of the majority of Malaysians? Leadership which UNITES rather than DIVIDES?

Leadership which calls for calm and reason to prevail...strong enough Leadership to remind everyone to preserve peace and respect each other.


Its not the colours of the shirts of the groups that matter or the manner in which muscles are being flexed to show the difference between "Them " & " Us"..
 

It is the VALIDITY and the CREDIBILITY of the RATIONALE for the group action.
     

Some said it is about " permainan politics"..." the political GAME"...which I am NOT capable of understanding.
   

I confess ..I DONT KNOW HOW TO "PLAY" POLITICS ..AND I NEVER PLAYED "POLITICS"..
 

POLITICS is much too serious to subject it to the frivolity equal to playing some game.
   

We need politics of DEVELOPMENT OF NATION AND COUNTRY..POLITICS TO MOVE MALAYSIA FORWARD ...AND POLITICS TO ENSURE MALAYSIA SURVIVES WELL IN THE HIGHLY COMPETITIVE REGIONAL AND GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT..
     

It is NEVER about the politics of individuals, of minority vested interests.,or the politics of one upmanship...and politics of continuing to separate between "THEM and "US "..
 

RATHER it should be POLITICS OF OUR MALAYSIANS TOGETHER, FOR NATIONAL INTEREST.. the POLITICS THAT FOSTER AND FORGE UNITY AND UNDERSTANDING.
POLITICANS THINK OF THE NEXT ELECTIONS, STATESMEN THINK OF THE NEXT GENERATION.

A government holding a protest rally? This is real weird ....

You know what. This is the first time in the history of our country or for that matter in any country, that a government has to hold rallies to protest against the people who want an end to corruption and a demand for fair elections, from the same government.
Am I missing something here??????

And to lead the charge is none other than you know who from the UMNO government.  If this is not weird enough, he is even showing the ISIS one finger sign.  What they will do to get the attention.
