Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim has been urged to reveal the names of PKR leaders who had tried to influence the valuation on the state’s water assets.

MCA central committee member Ng Chok Sin said Khalid’s ‘expose’ was a serious issue as water involved the people’s welfare, health and public funds.

“I urge Khalid to reveal the names of those PKR leaders involved so that the rakyat will know them for who they are,” Ng said in a press statement today.

He added that the Selangor Menteri Besar was beholden to the people and as such must report this matter to the proper authorities.

“The public’s money cannot be abused solely to benefit a few within PKR,” stressed Ng.

He also pointed out how the revelation seems to be linked with claims made by former PKR member Zaid Ibrahim that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim wanted to influence the water deal.

The Selangor MCA state liaison committee secretary urged Khalid to make it clear as to whether the party leader he was referring to was Anwar.

“In light of the Kajang by-election, I urge Khalid not to delay the truth any further. The people of Kajang have a right to know who exactly they are voting for as their representative.”

Ng said it was evident that PKR was not free of practicing cronyism despite their continued claims of being transparent.

“I ask the voters of Kajang to support a leader who has credibility, not one who only looks out for himself and his cronies,” he said.

He also urged DAP and PAS to demand an answer from Khalid “if they really respect the concept of transparency.”

“They should order Selangor’s Select Committee for Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) to probe these PKR leaders, instead of continuously keeping silent and turning a blind eye to the PKR’s wrongdoings.

“They have kept silent on PKR’s democracy abuse with regard the Kajang by-election, I strongly advise them to not keep quiet on this issue too,” said Ng.

- looks like most analysts agree that Malaysia is being managed well from an economic point of view and well-placed for faster growth over the next few years.
In their latest analyst report on Malaysia dated 24th Feb 2014, top international bank Credit Suisse has praised PM Najib as an economic hero and has said the ETP is showing great results and he has made bold but temporarily unpopular steps that have strengthened the economy which will eventually benefit the Rakyat in the next few years and hence positions PM Najib for a good 2018 GE14 showing.

Credit Suisse is a member of Wall Street's bulge bracket, a list of less than a dozen of the largest and most profitable banks. The company has been identified as one of the world's most important banks, upon which international financial stability depends. The bank is also one of Fortune Magazine's most admired companies.

Excerpt from Credit Suisse's report on Malaysia:
We believe that PM Najib will be feted as an economic hero. On
his watch, we have seen strong GDP momentum and transformation.

PM Najib represents a country with little political risk, given that he now has a ‘real’ mandate, with two election wins (GE and UMNO) under his belt. Any talk of a political challenge is highly parochial, in our view.

He is considered an economic hero by institutional investors. Malaysia sailed through the Global Financial Crisis unscathed and even saw economists upgrading their GDP forecasts as the benefits of the ETP were felt.

Indeed, our economists have just upgraded their forecasts last week, expecting 2014 GDP growth of 5.3%.

Balancing the fiscal budget
PM Najib has aggressively tackled the fiscal deficit via a programme of austerity and the promise of GST, much to the delight of investors.

While this was never going to be popular domestically, if the markets are convinced that Malaysia can balance its fiscal budget, it will lead to a better credit rating, which will translate into a stronger currency without the need to raise rates and therefore a stronger economy. As the benefits are reaped by the people, the pain will be forgotten and PM Najib will be feted as an economic hero, both at home and abroad.

If that happens, he will, in our view, be well set for 2018 elections.

Famous for his fickle decisions, Waythamoorthy lost people’s trust long ago and has no right to call for the resignation of PM Najib . He lost the plot long ago while masquerading as a hero for his community when realistically, his actions show otherwise.

His call for the PM’s resignation and criticisms of the government’s effort to help the Indian community are hopeless insults rolling off its intended targets like water off a duck’s back. The PM has not betrayed anyone but Waythamoorthy who has betrayed his community via his childish attention-seeking tantrum.

What have you, Waythamoorthy, done to earn the respect of Malaysians and the high moral ground to call for the resignation of the Prime Minister of this country? Such delusional thinking does you nothing. You are oblivious to the fact that you have also lost the nambikei of ALL Malaysians because:

1. You did not resign as a gentleman for you did not have the decency to see the PM to talk to him about your grouses or your intended resignation.  By that irresponsible and selfish move, you gave up that chance to make a difference in the community and the nation.

2.Eight months ago, you signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the BN, just before the 13th general election last year  to champion the Indian community’s agenda. Then you were appointed Senator and deputy minister in the Prime Minister's Department to take care of affairs of the Indian community but you readily threw it away when the going seemed tough after some ministers asked you to resign.

3.You have the audacity to accuse the government of ‘dragging its feet’ to help Indians when it is posted for all and sundry to see HERE and THIS LINK how the government has spent, invested and done so much to help the Indian community including:

•    Committing RM540 million for infrastructure development in Tamil schools since 2009, including two recent Budget allocations of RM100 million each in 2012 and 2013.
•    Allocating a special fund of RM20 million in 2013 for infrastructure development and refurbishment works in 13 fully-aided Tamil schools
•   Working with The Community Chest through a public-private partnership with Government to fund 53 Tamil schools a total of RM20.1 million
•   Approving 7 new Tamil schools in the country, the first big increase in the number of Tamil schools since 2000
•  Establishing the Action Plan for Tamil Schools Unit under the PM’s Department to monitor Tamil school issues and to develop a blueprint to chart a
bright future for Tamil schools in Malaysia
•  Cooperating with NGOs with funding from the Federal Government and The Community Chest to set up ICT labs in 38 schools nationwide

Where is your conscience, you make-believe hero? Who has not delivered promises?

It is YOU!

You dare announce to the world about how over the last eight months, you ‘had at least 16 meetings with the prime minister at his office in Putrajaya and how you pushed for the naming of the new unit you want to head. You are nitpicking over a name when the record shows that the government has really gone all out to do much more than before for the Indians.  Are you being fair?

In your resignation, why did you not tell Malaysians that under the Janji Ditepati  programme, the government has:

• allocated RM50 million for skills training programs targeted at 3,200 Indian youth from plantation backgrounds to increase their employability
•  Funding an independent NGO to launch pilot programs and eventually establish a training center that can train and place 1,000 school dropouts
• Establishing Koperasi Suria and provided funding of RM8 million to transform existing Indian sundry shops and automotive workshops, with 69 such transformations already completed
• Establishing the Special Secretariat for the Empowerment of Indian Entrepreneurs (SEED) to assist Indian businesses in obtaining financing and to
•  Reserving RM150 million in SME loans for Indian SMEs etc, which Malaysians can read HERE.

Obviously, you have this penchant for stage theatrics and this exit from the Prime Minister’s Office should be your final curtain call. For all the failed projects, unkept promises for which you are infamous,  you should retire gracefully instead of continuing your attacks on others. Think of ways to help your brother.

Your hunger for power can never be satiated. When snubbed by Anwar before GE13, you ran to BN who took you in, gave you status and power but when you almost had it all, you threw it all away. But we must thank you for with that, you ended your masquearade, threw away your mask and revealed the real you.

So far, PM Najib has tried his best to keep to his promises and if you had not abandoned a ship sailing happily in the ocean, hundreds of thousands of poor Indians in need  could have benefited if only you cared enough to stay and to help. Of course, you did not because it is not in you to be so kind and selfless.

I challenge Waythamoorthy to a debate with the Prime Minister’s department to let the people know the real situation and who is the real traitor and/or  liar.

You betrayed yourself, Indians, Malaysians and people who believed in you after you enjoyed benefits bestowed upon you by the government and then you encouraged Indians to vote for BN. Now you doth protest, quit, and proclaim you have been used?

Look at yourself in the mirror. What do you see?

You have left behind hardly anything of value safe for your meaningless theatrical tirades. So you think you were a hero, Waythamoorthy. Only in your dreams.

PKR strategist Rafizi Ramli has promised to disclose information about Zaid Ibrahim that he says will damage the latter’s reputation.

Commenting on Zaid’s call for a debate with Anwar Ibrahim, Rafizi told FMT today that he would wait till this Wednesday to reveal the “dirt” he had unearthed that would put his boss’s challenger on the defensive.

Zaid announced last week that he would challenge Anwar in the Kajang by-election and has sought a debate which the PKR leader has declined.

“I know that Zaid has been attacking Anwar, projecting himself as having better credibility,” Rafizi said. “His campaign theme is about attacking Anwar on his credibility.

“I will answer Zaid’s criticisms on Wednesday. I’ve been meaning to answer earlier, but I haven’t had the chance. So if he can be a bit patient, things will be a bit more fun.

“I’ve got some things to throw at Zaid. He’ll have to explain a few things about his own credibility.”

Zaid said he wanted a debate on issues ranging from personality to policies and that he would reveal the “real” reasons behind Anwar’s decision to contest. He also said the debate would help voters decide whether he or the opposition leader was a more credible candidate.

But Rafizi said the debate was unnecessary and would only distract voters from the “real” battle, meaning the one between Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional.

“At the end of the day, the real contest is between Pakatan and BN,” he said. “As much as we celebrate democracy and Zaid has every right to contest, at the same time we shouldn’t divert the public from the real contest and issues.”

He said it would be pointless for Pakatan to focus on Zaid’s challenge because there was “very little Zaid could do for the rakyat”.

Rafizi dismissed a suggestion that Anwar’s refusal to debate Zaid would affect his reputation, pointing out that his boss had often received such challenges and had regularly brushed them off.

“Every Tom, Dick and Harry has challenged Anwar for a debate, even Perkasa, even (Youth and Sports Minister) Khairy Jamaluddin. Anwar cannot entertain all debates.

“If he does, then when will it ever stop? All the independent candidates will want to debate him too—Yuktes Vijay, Herman Tino. It will become a circus.”

Rafizi said a debate must be something that is meaningful to the public and not a platform to satisfy some “people’s lust for attention”.

Equal impact
He said a debate between Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and Anwar would be meaningful because the two had equal impact on Malaysian politics.

“So if there is a challenge from BN for a debate, then I’m sure Anwar would be more than willing to reconsider,” he said.
Apart from the usual government suspects, Facebook users in Malaysia now think that Facebook Inc may have had a hand in blocking access to at least six pro-Pakatan Rakyat webpages, and are pushing the American company for an answer.

Three Chinese-language pro-Pakatan Facebook users have complained to Facebook Inc that their pages were inaccessible by users in Malaysia since last Saturday, but the California-based social utility company has kept silent, they said.

Six pro-Pakatan Facebook pages are currently inaccessible, while deputy Information Minister Jailani Johari said today that he was unaware of any government bans on these pages.

"You're saying you received a report from a third party that infringes or otherwise violates their rights that led you to make such an action.

"How easily and hastily that judgment was made by Facebook. Don't you see by passing that judgment, you have rudely removed the rights of free speech of Malaysian people?

"We strongly urge you to lift your ban immediately," addressed one of the blocked Facebook pages named, ‘Sharing Yours Sharing Mine’, in a message to the Facebook Team.

‘Sharing Yours’ said that they replied after receiving a notice from the Facebook Team, informing that its webpage has been blocked because of a complain from "a third party".

"We strongly encourage you to review the content you have posted to Facebook to make sure that you have not posted any other infringing content, as it is our policy to terminate the accounts of repeated infringers when appropriate," the private message from the Facebook Team warned.

No response yet
‘Sharing Yours’ said that they have since written back in protest to the ban twice to the Facebook Team, but as of Monday afternoon, there was still no response.

They seriously questioned the political bias and incorruptibility of Facebook.

Another two Facebook users - who are frequent commenters on pro-Pakatan news stories - have also written an open letter to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

"As an American company, your corporate move to block at least the following two pages from Malaysian users - and - is a shame to Facebook."

"Disregarding that it is due to political pressure from the local government or (that they have paid) Facebook to filter Malaysians out, it is a shameful denial of freedom of speech."

They threatened to migrate their web content away from Facebook and to use rival hosts such as Google instead. The letter has been popularly shared by other Facebook users.

Blocked Pakatan-DAP fan page accuses PM Najib and FaceBook founder Mark Zuckerberg of conspiracy to block their fan-page
Yesterday, the popular Pakatan supporters page, "我们全力支持民行 We Fully Support PKR<DAP>" which was blocked by FaceBook two day ago from being accessed in certain regions, has posted this particular post on their page that PM Najib's visit to meet FaceBook Founder Mark Zuckerberg is positive proof that FaceBook is collaborating with the Malaysian Government to suppress freedom of speech, suppressing the TRUTH and from exposing their corrupted ways.

For your information, PM Najib visited Facebook HQ on 25th September 2013, which is 5 months ago and the ban on their page only happened two days ago. So it is highly unlikely.

What do you think?

Barisan Nasional (BN) Kajang state seat by-election candidate Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun today slammed Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) wanita chief Zuraida Kamarudin's recent statement describing her as BN's 'sacrificial lamb' in the coming by-election.

Chew said Zuraida should not have made such a remark as it not only looked down on women but also on herself (Zuraida) as "she is also from the same gender".

"The party (MCA) makes the best effort to select the right candidate and, for me, this is a recognition for women.

"But Zuraida looks down on women. She should not have made that remark which insults her own gender," she told reporters after the 65th MCA anniversary celebration and extraordinary general meeting, here, today.

Chew said that despite the various allegations levelled against her, she was in high spirits and would work hard to win the by-election.

She also hoped the voters in Kajang would give her their support to enable BN to strengthen its role as the opposition in Selangor.

MCA Selangor Wanita Chief Ong Chong Swen added It is unacceptable for PKR's Kajang by-election committee deputy chief Zuraida Kamaruddin to belittle women politicians. As a woman, she should have upheld the status of women in politics and social rights as well as to support women participation in politics.

Hence, it is deeply regrettable to read her statement as a female Member of Parliament for Ampang accusing Barisan Nasional of “(fielding a woman candidate as a scapegoat) to shoulder the blame…” or that Mei Fun is “used as a political pawn (by men)”.

How could Zuraida say something derogatory to women that betrays her conscience just to ensure her political master - Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim may winning the by-election?

If BN candidate Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun is being “used” by men in this by-election, then Zuraida must also have been used by men in PKR to contest in the 308 and 505 General Elections.

Women’s participation in any election is a recognition of a the female gender’s capability and status regardless of winning or losing in any polls.

This form of ridiculous thinking by Zuraida must be rejected.

Is this the product of PKR in grooming women politicians? If it is not, Zuraida is not fit to be the party's Wanita chief.

Zuraida's statement:
Yesterday, PKR women chief, Zuraida Kamaruddin had said that, "It is least expected that MCA did not field its strongest candidate and President Liow Tiong Lai to contest against Anwar Ibrahim in Kajang. A commander who uses subterfuge in order to gain public support must be strongly condemned."

"Chew Mei Fun is clearly a scapegoat in this case - fielded to shoulder the blame should she lose in the by-election. Why field a woman candidate only when the chances of winning are slim? Women should be fielded in winning seats instead."

"This is so typical of MCA to keep winnable seats for men and assign tough ones to women," said the Ampang MP.

"Here is an opportunity for Chew to make a stance that a woman’s dignity should come first and that women should not be expected ‘to stand up and die’ whenever summoned by men or merely be used as a political pawn," she added.

Zuraida pointed out that the international target of encouraging at least 30 percent women’s participation in decision making should be taken in a more serious manner.

"Chew’s action of accepting the offer to contest will jeopardise women’s credibility to contest in the future," she said.
CYBERJAYA: EXERCISING her rights as a citizen to support a political party of her choice, in this case Barisan Nasional, has resulted in death and rape threats on her Facebook page instead.

The victim, who ia a member of the Malaysian Youth Rights Movement, had gone to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) yesterday to lodge a report.

She was accompanied by the movement head Shen Yee Aun, who said the girl is in her early twenties.

Shen said the girl had shown her support for the ruling coalition via a video to rebut a parody video posted by the opposition on the issue of changing leadership.

Since then, the victim has been the subject of torment.

The girl declined to talk and have her picture taken by the media as she feared for her safety.

Shen said the report made to the MCMC was on the basis of cyber bullying which also contained the elements of threats.

He said the abusive comments were posted on the victim's FB profile and the video she acted in was shared in several pro-opposition pages.

He claimed the opposition's cyber troopers could have played a role in the matter.

"She has received more than a thousand lewd and vulgar comments for being in the video that shows support for BN.

"Her life has been threatened and they even threatened to rape her," he told reporters yesterday.

Shen added that a report would also be lodged with the police today as the girl fears for her safety.

Refusing to divulge further details on the victim for safety reasons, Shen expressed hope that the commission would take action to weed out the alleged opposition cyber troopers.

At the same time, Shen wanted the commission to look into the defamatory comments that had been posted on his movement's page on Facebook.

"We are a non-governmental organisation (NGO) movement that is politically neutral for the youths and I don't see why these cyber troopers need to insult or post unnecessary comments on the page," he said.

He also sought MCMC to look into edited photos of political leaders especially those of MCA which insinuated insults.

Shen added that such attitude should not be encouraged and stopped as it could defile the maturity of youngsters in the nation.

Wah, this person very misleading.. he go and say BN govt sold thousands of acres of land at Tanjung Tokong at RM1 per square feet and included it in his calculations and say the previous BN sold land too cheaply.

Please... that Tanjung Tokong land was NOT EVEN LAND! It was a reclamation project awarded 15 years ago and the price of RM1 was just the rights to reclaim and once reclaimed the developer still have to pay for land alienation premium and also the conversion premium and also hand-over 10% of the reclaimed land BACK to the State Govt. As part of the deal, the developer also had to build subsidized low-cost housing.

Why do you divert the blame with misleading figures away from the fact that you sold land below current Market Price at Batu Kawan to ASPEN at just RM45 per feet and allow 5 years free installment at just RM9psf per year?

BTW, how can you go and compare the price of prime COMMERCIAL land to INDUSTRIAL land?

By the way, it is not accurate to say the land is for IKEA since IKEA uses only a small part of that land, the rest is going to be yet another property development project by ASPEN group - which is 49% owned by Ivory Properties, the same company that you sold land cheaply (also with 5 year interest-free installments) at Bayan Mutiara only 3 years ago at RM240psf and just 3 years later, the houses there are now selling at more than RM1,000 psf.

Rebuffed by keepers of his own faith when he tried to preach at a mosque last month, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was welcomed with open arms at the church of the Holy Family in Kajang after the English and Mandarin masses today.

Parish priest Father George Harrison welcomed the opposition leader as "our brother" before he gave the floor to Anwar, who vowed the 1,200-strong crowd with his 25-minute speech on various issues.

But it was Anwar's bold and direct approach to answering the questions from the congregation that impressed the crowd.

When he was asked about his stand on the religious issues currently affecting the country and the rights of Bahasa Malaysia-speaking Christians to use the word Allah, Anwar said that even international Muslim scholars thought it was a subject unworthy of debate.

"When I asked an international scholar about it, he asked me what kind of question that was.

"I told him it was Umno's question, so he explained that Muslims recite five times a day: "Praise be to Allah, Lord of Heaven and Earth.

"So, if Allah is Lord for the entire universe, how can there be limitations?" Anwar pointed out.

He also stressed that for Umno, the Allah issue was clearly not about faith.

"If it was, then their stand must be binding on all. But in this case they are saying Sabah and Sarawak can use the word but not in the peninsula," Anwar said to loud cheers.

He then joked that this meant that a person who boarded a flight from Kuching to Kuala Lumpur will say "Insyallah I'm going to KL" when he gets on the flight but when he lands, he will have to say "Alhamdu Lord".

Anwar’s meeting of the Catholics at the Holy Family church hall comes amidst religious tension between Muslims and Christians which was reignited last year when the Court of Appeal had ruled in October that the Catholic weekly Herald could not use the word Allah in its publication.

The church is appealing the decision.

Herald had won a High Court decision in January 2009 that had overturned the Home Ministry's ban on the use of the word Allah in its publication.

Robert Kuok was NOT forced out of Malaysia's Sugar business
- in 2009, Robert Kuok announced he was exiting the sugar business in Malaysia and many Chinese Malaysians believed (and still believe) that Robert Kuok was forced to sell due to govt pressure or due to racist or crony reasons and that Robert Kuok is now pissed-off at Malaysia and will never invest back here again

- This is not true as the shrewd Robert Kuok sold the sugar business for purely commercial reasons.

- Kuok's PPB sold its sugar business for RM1.25billion to Felda and received a good price for it.
- The first and most important reason is that Sugar price in Malaysia is a price-controlled item and the world-wide price of sugar was rising tremendously during in 2008-2009 due to sugar cane crop failures in Brazil and India and also because much of the sugar was being diverted to make ethanol (due to high world oil prices). Since the cost of raw materials and production would then be higher than the controlled price of Sugar in Malaysia (which was the second-cheapest in the world), this would be bad business for Robert Kuok.

- The second reason is that Robert Kuok had a better deal and within months of selling the Sugar business in Malaysia for RM1.2billion, he went to buy the much larger sugar business in Australia (and the 5th largest in the world) for RM5 billion (US$1.5). Sugar price in Australia is not price-controlled. Nobody goes to buy a multi-billion business without years of planning and study!

- And as for Robert Kuok no longer interested in Malaysia because he is pissed-off... in April (just 2 weeks before GE13), The Kuok group invested Rm200million and has teamed up with Khazanah to develop a RM1billion project in Iskandar Johor.
- and just two weeks ago, Robert Kuok donated RM100million to the Universiti of Xiamen in Malaysia.

Kuok’s vehicle, PPB Group Bhd, is getting RM1.25bil from the sale of its sugar refineries and land used for sugar cane cultivation to Felda. Of this, the largest asset is the Malayan Sugar Manufacturing (MSM) operations, that was sold for RM1.2bil.

PPB Group said its cost of investment in MSM was RM60mil (incurred from 1976 to 1999), thereby giving it a massive gain of RM1.17bil from the sale.

Furthermore, the price of RM1.2bil represents a price-earnings multiple of 9.8 times MSM’s FY2008 earnings and a price-to-book ratio of 2.46 times. On both counts, the deal seems to have been reasonably priced.

Kuok invests in Iskandar:

Why Robert Kuok exited the Sugar Business

Teresa Kok deserves a ‘slap’, no doubt about it, maybe not physically but definitely on her bloated ego. Her arrogance has shrouded her ability to reason, act and think as a politician.

As a member of parliament from DAP, she for sure had no grounds to produce and ‘act’ in her Chinese New Year video that went viral on the net.

It is shameful that DAP’s top leaders have defended her video, citing it was not seditious in any manner. It is disgusting that the very same DAP that goes around the nation boasting of being a champion for all races had stooped so low in condoning a video that had belittled the nation grossly.

DAP had always lamented that Barisan Nasional is the leader of gutter politics but with Kok’s video, I wonder what sort of politics they practice now?

The DAP has proven beyond doubt that it is nothing more than another group of humans who will do anything to achieve its desires, which is to take over the governing of the country at all cost.

Kok’s video unveiled the camouflaged image of DAP, a party that respects no other race but only thinks for the Chinese.

Kok’s argument that the video did not mention any names, in her defence, is really insulting the intelligence of all Malaysians. It is crystal clear that Kok was making sly innuendos, hitting below the belt of certain individuals and the Malays in particular.

Come on, we are not that dumb not to understand her cunning message to the nation.

As a politician and an elected rep, she lacked maturity and wisdom in sending out the message she really intended to during the festive season.

It was distasteful and sour to do so on an auspicious occasion like the Chinese New Year (CNY). Kok just wanted to show how the Chinese in Malaysia think that they are far superior in Malaysia than other races.

No doubt, all is not well in the nation but for her to ridicule the people of Malaysia blatantly completely defies logic when she is also a citizen of the country. Is she implying via the video that since she is a Chinese descendent, she has the right to denigrate other races during Chinese New Year?

Morally wrong
Occasions like the CNY or other festivities should be optimised to close ranks and implant seeds of harmony among various races but Kok thought it would be more appropriate to release a damaging video in the public domain to score brownie points with her foolish supporters and followers.

And DAP supremos think that it was a gigantic effort and Kok indeed needs to be credited for making a fool out of herself.

Seems like DAP is nothing better than any other race-based party and it will defend its grounds even if it knows it is morally wrong. It forgets that two wrongs do not make a right.

Kok had ‘slapped’ the entire nation on the international front with the video and yet she cries innocence as though there was no damage done by her.

Indeed, it was her very own boss Lim Kit Siang who had said days earlier that all efforts must be made to avoid another May 13, but looks like Kok had just fuelled the strained race relationship in the country with her ‘Onederful Malaysia CNY2014′ video.

As said earlier, Kok needs to be ‘slapped’, but with all available legal avenues. The authorities must put a stop to vainglorious individuals like her who are self-centered.

Why did Rafizi Ramli equate what happened in Kelantan in 1977 to what is currently happening in Selangor?

In Kelantan in 1977, it was an internal party matter involving the ruling party of the state, PAS. Selangor is not being ruled by PKR but is being ruled by Pakatan Rakyat and PKR holds only 14 of the 56 state seats (now 13 since Kajang is already vacant).

Even if 13 of the PKR State Assemblypersons pass a vote of no confidence against Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim in the Selangor State Assembly (like what happened in Kelantan in 1977), PAS and DAP still control 30 of the 56 seats or 31 if Khalid were to be included.

Hence, how can the state fall unless Barisan Nasional adds its 12 votes to that and DAP joins them with another 15? Then they would get 13 (PKR), 15 (DAP), and 12 (BN) to total 40 out of 56.

Okay, the declaration of the emergency in Kelantan in 1977 was not because of the vote of no confidence against the MB in the Kelantan State Assembly. It was the result of rioting on the streets and the burning of the cars, shops and houses. The Chinese and Indians were not involved. They stayed indoors and locked their doors and windows. It was Malay versus Malay, or PAS Malays versus PAS Malays to be more accurate.

Is Rafizi saying that the PKR Malays are going to take to the streets to riot against fellow PKR Malays, the pro-Khalid faction versus the pro-Azmin faction, like what happened in Kelantan, in the event that a vote of no confidence is passed against MB Khalid? More importantly, I think, is this question: are they planning a vote of no confidence against MB Khalid?

Maybe Rafizi should explain what he meant when he said that Selangor might turn out like Kelantan if Anwar does not take over as Menteri Besar. This is very worrying because in Kelantan it was a purely Malay affair but if they are planning to do the same in Selangor as what happened in Kelantan it would not be confined to just Malays versus Malays or PKR Malays versus PKR Malays since PKR is not a Malay party.

Oh, and one more thing, this kind of talk (Anwar assured of Chinese votes) does not help either. Is Pakatan Rakyat trying to suggest that Anwar’s future is in the hands of the Chinese or that the Kajang by-election is going to be a contest between the Chinese and the non-Chinese?

And you get angry when Umno attacks the Chinese. But you yourself are suggesting that the Chinese are the ones propping Anwar up. Isn’t this silly?

One of the main reason why I reject Pakatan Rakyat and their politics of hate, violence and desperation for power at the expense of peace and harmony...

See for yourself whether you want to be associated with these kind of people who claim they are "fighting for democracy" - just like you are.

It is my opinion that the Blackout lies and the Blackout505 rallies after GE13 was planned because Pakatan knew that they were going to lose GE13 much earlier (of course they knew, they do surveys too) - which is also why Bang Non announced Pakatan had won so early at 7pm on that day even though vote-counting has not been completed yet.

Pakatan hoped that by spreading lies of Pakatan being cheated of the elections would plant the seed of public anger and the constant Blackout505 rallies would fan this and the rallies would grow and grow until they are big enough to topple the govt - Arab spring style, which would definitely lead to years of chaos and economic ruins Arab spring style.

Fortunately for Malaysians, the haze worsened and the rallies died out.

I call this divine intervention and justice from the gods.

I have noticed that some Malays hate Nazir Razak for being successful and accuse him of being corrupted. Why is that so? Can't smart and hardworking Malays become successful and rich?

Yes, his family background may have helped but so did his talent, hardwork, education and loyalty.

Did you know that Nazir Razak has a Masters in Economics from Cambridge University?

Upon returning from his studies in 1989, he joined CIMB at the age of 23 and has stayed there since. He has worked a total of 25 years with the same company.

Nazir Abdul Razak was born in 1966 in Kuala Lumpur. His father died when he was 10 years old. He attended St. John's Institution and Alice Smith School and continued his secondary education in the United Kingdom from age 13. He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Economics and Politics from the University of Bristol and went on to obtain a Master of Philosophy in Development Economics from the University of Cambridge.

It is learnt that the house of elderly ustaz, Najib Darus, 62, faces demolition by the local municipal council this Feb 28 and the NGOs insisted that something be done about the matter if Rafizi was serious in helping the rakyat with his strategies.

In the 11pm incident, the group asked to meet and speak with Rafizi to look for solutions.

But Rafizi who appeared calm and unfazed asked for the letter to be handed to him and told the group to “go home and sleep”.

“You’ve handed me the letter, I will look into the matter now you all can go home and sleep,” Rafizi, who is also Pandan MP was heard saying.

This apparently sparked outrage among members of the group who challenged Rafizi to meet with them but the latter was unperturbed.

One of the members of the group was heard shouting, “kata nak mai jumpa rakyat tapi bila kami nak jumpa dia lari” (said he wanted to come meet the rakyat here but when he is approached, he runs away).

They were heard shouting for Rafizi to step down and resign and to “balik Kajang makan satay”

Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim is in a fix — he has to put up a strong and confident front — but the reality is the Selangor mentri besar is in a real big problem.

PKR de facto chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is after his head, given the fact quarters are justifying Anwar's move to contest in Kajang to work his way up to the mentri besar chair.

The justification was first aimed at ending the spat between Khalid and PKR's deputy president Azmin Ali but was later supposed to stop BN from 'taking over' the state. Later, it emerged that Khalid was a good administrator but quite naive and the federal government might declare a state of emergency in Selangor.

All claims made to justify Anwar’s candidacy made Khalid look like a fool, that all this while he was not good enough material for mentri besar and he needed to be replaced by none other than Anwar himself.

Khalid appears to be pushed to the corner yet he still puts on a broad smile in public despite knowing he is being ‘played out’ by his own party chief and Azmin’s men.

The latest is — despite claims that Khalid is not a good politician — he is being made the party by-election director of operations, leading the charge to retain the Kajang seat.

Khalid is no strategist or political animal because if he is, he would have ‘politically killed’ Azmin long before the Selangor Development Corporation (PKNS) episode.

He is not even an active player in the party, holding no position except as an elected member of the party's political bureau by virtue of him being mentri besar. It is the highest decision making body of the party but Khalid is seldom present at those meetings.

With his recent appointment as by-election director, Khalid is being put in a position where he carries the burden of being blamed for any unwelcome outcome — if Anwar wins with lesser majority than the previous assemblyman, he will be blamed for using incorrect strategies; and if Anwar wins with a higher majority, all credit will go to Anwar.

Whichever way, Khalid will still not get any credit and he will still be replaced as implied by Rafizi Ramli, the mastermind behind the 'Kajang move'.

Selangor needs a mentri besar that can stand up to Umno’s onslaught.
A group of 22 former contract employees of Selangor subsidiary PHSB have claimed that their employer violated proper procedure when it abruptly terminated their contracts on February 4.

In a statement today, the group claimed that they were called into an unscheduled meeting that morning and each of them were then given their termination letters, stating that it was with immediate effect. They claimed to have not even received a notice of 24 hours.

Spokesperson for the group Dr Alif Aiman Abdullah also challenged the official reason given for their termination, which was that it was part of a re-structuring exercise by PHSB and parent company PKNS.

Alif Aiman said none of the usual processes involved in a corporate restructuring exercise, such as developing process flows, assessing manpower needs, and revenue and cost projections, were done either by the senior staff of PKNS or PHSB.

“Where are the above reports? No handover procedures were followed, no replacements announced. Staff were simply asked to immediately leave the premises,” he said.

“The explanation that this shameful act was conducted as part of a restructuring exercise therefore holds no credibility and is seen as yet another sham,” said Alif Aiman, who is former head of marketing of PKNS.

He said all PHSB staff were seconded and placed in positions within the parent company PKNS, the Selangor government’s development arm.

Two days after they were terminated, Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim defended the move, saying it would save the company RM7 million a year.

Abdul Khalid said the termination was above board and according to procedures as stated in their contracts. The employees would also be given two months' severance pay.

Abdul Khalid said the termination of the employees was in line with the integrity pact policy implemented by PKNS to ensure good corporate governance.

Those dismissed were asked to reapply to PKNS later and would be deployed according to its needs.

The move was criticised by Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) deputy president Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid, who described the sudden termination as "cruel" and accused the corporation of violating the law.

Alif Aiman also refuted claims that the company would be saving RM7 million from the exercise, claiming that the salaries of the 22 last year only amounted to RM2 million.

“PHSB have helped them reap hundreds of millions of ringgit each year since joining PKNS, yet do not share in most bonuses or perks. Where is all this money being used?

“Where does PKNS get its RM7 million ringgit cost for PHSB staff from? Their salaries for 2013 were only RM2 million. By comparison, PKNS staff salaries were about RM70 million for the same period.

"PKNS overheads for 2013 was over RM150 million. Were there any cost savings made before putting key loyal staff and their families in hardship?” he asked.

No, you do not need to apologise to me. The fact that many of you are sitting in front of your computer in stunned silence is a good enough apology for me. I know you are speechless and do not know what to say. And for sure you are not going to say, “Fuck me! Raja Petra Kamarudin was right all along!”

Malaysians have huge egos. The way some Malaysian Chinese talk about how worried they are that the Kajang Malays would be tricked (hence they are stupid) into voting for Barisan Nasional and how worried they are that the Kajang Indians would be bought (hence they are crooked) and would vote Barisan Nasional demonstrates that the Chinese pandang rendah the Malays and Indians.

And surely those who pandang rendah the other races are not going to apologise. The most they would say is, “So what! Barisan Nasional is far worse. Pakatan Rakyat is not as bad as Barisan Nasional. And you cannot expect 100% corruption-free. If 50% also that is good enough to support Pakatan Rakyat.”

Back in late-2010 when I first revealed the shenanigans in the Pakatan Rakyat run Selangor State Government, plus the shenanigans in the various state agencies and/or GLCs, plus also in the Local Councils in Selangor, the first response from you people (plus those in Pakatan Rakyat) was that I had turned, I had been bought over, I am now a turncoat, and whatnot.

The only reason I revealed these shenanigans is because I had been paid to do so and for no other reason other than that, you losers said.

Then, in early 2011, after the whacking you people gave me, I went on TV to repeat everything I had said earlier and you all gave me that same treatment and vilified me to kingdom come.

And do you know what? Now those people who said all those nasty things about me are the same people who are saying nasty things about each other and are accusing each other of all sorts of shenanigans. And, meanwhile, the rest of you remain as quiet as church mice as if Anwar Ibrahim’s dick is stuck deep down your throat.

But hold on. This is not over yet. This is just the beginning. After this, in the run-up to the Kajang by-election, I am going to reveal more and more and supported with all sorts of documentary evidence as well.

In the meantime, why don’t you ask Anwar Ibrahim to reveal all those documentary evidence that he is hiding in his underwear that the Chinese businessman gave him regarding how much money he had paid Azmin Ali in return for certain ‘favours’.

And the reason this Chinese businessman went to Anwar to complain and to hand him the evidence is because he was pissed that after paying the money he did not get those ‘favours’ as promised and as what he paid for.

Anwar then summoned Azmin who admitted that he had, in fact, received the ‘election contribution’, which he did not declare not because he wanted to sailang the money but because it was illegal and the party’s candidates would get disqualified if the Election Commission (SPR) found out.

Azmin then explained that he could not deliver the ‘favours’ to the Chinese businessman because Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim was blocking all his moves.

And that was when Anwar and Azmin decided that Khalid has to be removed.

Last ten years - Ringgit and Singapore Dollars appreciate against major world trading currencies
However, Singapore dollars have appreciated against the major world trading currencies faster than Ringgit Malaysia has although both have strengthened.

Conclusion: Over the last ten years, it is not Ringgit Malaysia that has grown weaker but have actually grown stronger - just not as fast as the Singapore dollars.

As a MP for Seputeh, Teresa Kok must realize that as an elected leader, she has the responsibility of upholding values and ethics that sow the seeds for unity and not dissension. In the hullabaloo arising from her controversial Chinese New Year video clip, Teresa Kok clearly used satire to bypass political censorship in her most distasteful rendition of political criticism. Those in the video clip not only insult via subtle innuendos, alluding representations, and passing comments, she and the others in the clip brazenly run down the country distastefully.

Right-thinking viewers are appalled by the sick and warped humor and the fact that the arrogant culprits brazenly refuse to acknowledge that the whole production smacks with malicious intent. That she had the gumption to be in the video and yet lack the grace to acknowledge the fact that she had overstepped boundaries is outrageously disgusting.

Teresa Kok claimed the video clip was produced with humor and fun for her audience among the Chinese community who speak Mandarin and Cantonese. If that were the case, why did she include English subtitles for those who cannot understand those dialects? Far beyond her claims, there is clearly a mischievous motive behind the production as evidenced by the script and characteristics/names of the other three characters. For example, the Feng Sui lady is Master Yan Yan alluding to Ng Yen Yen.

The well-endowed woman, Mrs. Jit, resembles the PM’s wife in terms of hairstyle and other statements that echo Rosmah’s statements on saving money for diamond rings, Birkin handbags, and other sickening innuendos. The man has an uncanny resemblance to Wee Ka Siong in appearance and crying episode.

In a most revealing, abominable and audacious revelation, Teresa Kok was arrogant and resorted to revolting name-calling retaliation showing her lack of respect for fellow leaders and her warped malevolent side. Here are some of the labels she used in her press statement:

• She called critics of her video “racial bigots” and “stupid” for failing to appreciate the concept of satire.

• She singled out Umno minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal and MCA’s Koh Nai Kwong for apologies, saying the duo had falsely accused her of mocking local security forces who fought during the Lahad Datu intrusion last year.

• She lashed out at MCA for being “political parrots,” accusing the party’s leaders of repeating the comments and actions of “racial bigots and extremists.”

• Kok is reported to have said Wanita MCA chief Heng Seai Kie as an example of a leader who could not accept political satire... and has shown her stupidity by calling on MCMC and police to intervene and stop my video for the nation’s stability and unity.

Is such behavior becoming of a Christian (Catholic) MP? While on one hand she has the gall to make such an offensive video and on the other hand, has no guts to apologize or to admit her video clip of political satire is most inappropriate and out of line for the CNY celebrations . Neither does she dare to admit it was produced to reframe the representation of current issues to her advantage, through her lens, her perspective and that of DAP. Impressive?

By definition, satirical literature is different from pure comedy, as it is “not meant to elicit laughter just for the sake of laughing, for that is called clowning. It is a form of black comedy that reflects the political and social pains of every citizen.” Granted that for a long time, satire has long been used for political criticism with a specific target and an ideal for comparison description of a folly or vice. However, Teresa Kok and her DAP partners-in-satire must realize that whilst there is freedom in using satire, we should exercise responsibility in how we use it and not abuse others verbally after that!

From ancient times, satirists have shared a common aim: to expose foolishness in all its guises — vanity, hypocrisy, pedantry, idolatry, bigotry, sentimentality — and to effect reform through such exposure. The many diverse forms their statements have taken reflect the origin of the word satire, which is derived from the Latin satura, meaning "dish of mixed fruits," hence a medley.

Certainly, that video clip does not effect reform; rather it stirs unrest and a host of negative sentiments. To hide behind the mask of innocent tomfoolery or comedy in the name of fun is nothing short of being hypocritical. If she really had the intention of using political satire, why couldn’t she have used it in a non-offensive, non-divisive manner so that everyone can laugh at it in good fun because it is well-written, entertaining and everyone, including the satirist, clearly knows and admits who/what is the target.

Unfortunately, the political landscape in Malaysia is diving downwards as there is so much filth being spewed by irresponsible netizens to the extent that democratic space is filled with malice, hatred, and spins. It has almost become second nature for many to criticize insensitively, irresponsibly and bluntly rather than responsibly choosing the appropriate responses, analogy, words, or message with an entertaining allusion to some ongoing controversy, which can breed more understanding of core issues rather than inciting anger and hatred.

Life is filled with choices. Obviously, Teresa Kok has a knack of making the wrong choices. Her detention under the ISA for one week in 2008 did not teach her precious lessons of responsibility in what she says publicly. Then, her claim that the quality of food served to her during her incarceration was so bad that it was similar to dog food was carried by Utusan Malaysia which reported her statement. Kok claimed Utusan was manipulating her words, denied making that statement, and instead insisted that she had said that the food was only slightly better than dog food. Later, she admitted to making contradictory statements. (Wikipedia)

Finally, many Malaysians mudah lupa that Teresa Kok triggered a controversy when she aired a clip that showed a female police officer ordering a female detainee to do nude squats in the nude. Kok claimed the victim is a Chinese national when in reality, she is a Malaysian now identified as Hemy Hamisa Abu Hassan Saari. So, judge for yourself whether Teresa Kok has been consistently inconsistent in her responsibility as a MP.

Making catchy slogans such as ‘A Cleaner and Greener Penang’ is a task which can be easily delegated to professionals. Such a tagline looks good on billboards but is very different from reality because the Penang state government is certainly in deep waters following a media report on beach pollution stemming from pungent black effluence from the river that spread to the Batu Ferringhi beachfront. Apparently, erosion has also defaced a 50m stretch of beach, rendering it unsuitable for use. Worse still, the Department of Environment (DoE) officers are discouraging people from swimming in the waters, following suspicion that the contamination could be caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria. Such a scenario will have severe repercussions on the tourism industry in Penang.

Escherichia Coli, a bacteria found in the gut of warm-blooded animals, is an indicator of fecal contamination in fresh waters. DOE reports in the past have shown the main source of pollution identified is pollutants in the rivers’ outflow from the discharge of domestic sewage in residential areas and business premises. The presence of E-Coli in Penang waters was reported as early as 1978 by JD Owens of University of Sydney. That the problem still exists today in a worse scenario clearly shows our state government is moving backwards!

For all the hyped Competency, Accountability, and Transparency maxim preached fervently by CM Lim Guan Eng, we see the incompetence of the state in upholding and maintaining Penang. We see how there is little accountability as the state authorities have yet to provide a reasonable and accountable response. Transparency is lacking, as findings of research of beach waters off Penang have not been disclosed.

It is pointless to boast about Penang when tourists are greeted with a disgusting black patch instead of aquamarine blue seas. When tourists descend on the beaches or even many streets in Penang (evidence in Penang Watch Facebook)), they will discover to their horror, that their dream paradise island is actually a chaotic situation rubbish dump. Such a situation is because the local authorities, despite being trained by consultants (another LGE brainwave), are not vigilant in their duties.

DAP adoring fans that laud and magnify glam projects in Penang turn a blind eye to the state government’s flippancy about pollution off Batu Feringghi and coastal areas. Probably, most are scuttling around trying to get things into place for the second bridge and the proposed tunnel (which has not gone down well with Penangites at all).

Until now, the authorities concerned have not put up notices around the area warning tourists about the danger nor have they assigned guards to make sure tourists stay off the beach. They have also not advised sports operators to avoid the waters for now. Such a lackadaisical attitude clearly shows their misplaced priorities and lack of concern for the well-being of Penangites and visitors. The NST report noted the presence of a DID automatic water quality monitoring system, which looked abandoned as the equipment was rusty and overgrown. Competent?

According to a research on Marine Pollution at Northeast of Penang Island ( ) in 2012 by undergraduates of Universiti Teknologi Petronas:

Laboratory results show that Gurney Drive is the most polluted location compared to other sampling points as it received flows from the existing island. The highest COD was 550 mg/L recorded at Gurney Drive followed by 290 mg/L at Sg. Fetes and 187 mg/L at North Tanjung Tokong. This study shows that the marine pollution was contributed from various sources with different impacts and resulted from the discharge from the existing mainland itself. Thus, pollution input should be controlled and mitigated for better water quality in the future.

A study by P.M. Sivalingam on Ocean disposal and land reclamation problems of Penang, Malaysia in 1984 showed that “rapid development in Penang has cost it negative environmental impact to the marine zone. Marine zone of the Penang is heavily polluted due to the activities of land reclamation and the direct sewage discharge into the sea (Sivalingam, 1984). This study illustrates how improperly treated sewage and waste from the hinterland contributes to the polluted coastal waters.”

Forget all the sugarcoated words so easily spewed from the mouths of state leaders. Penang is definitely suffering from environmental degradation – a price we all have to pay due to rapid overdevelopment so eagerly promoted by the current state government who will never admit that we have low water quality in rivers and sea, mudflats, destruction of mangrove forests and water catchment areas. Hence, the fishermen suffer from dwindling catches. Now, we face solid evidence of the deterioration of healthy ecosystem off Penang beaches.

For crying aloud, I am not against development but any development must be carefully monitored to ensure the environment and the lives of local residents are not adversely affected.

Has the state government seriously enforced the Environmental Quality Act 1974? Have they bothered to read the Penang DOE annual report for 2011, which revealed that 10 out of 24 rivers in the seven river basins in the state are classified as polluted? That report revealed how most rivers and the sea in Penang are polluted by industrial effluents, sewage and rubbish threatening at least 40 species of river and marine life.

Some may dismiss this situation as a one off situation without realizing this is just the tip of the iceberg of horrors. The DOE report on marine water quality found highest readings of Escherichia Coli in Kuala Sungai Pinang (Jelutong), Kuala Sungai Pinang (Balik Pulau), Kuala Sungai Prai and Kuala Sungai Juru.

The state government owes it to Penangites to restore Penang to its former state of beauty and splendor. The Pearl of the Orient lost its glow long ago and the state government is still preening its feathers in its own la-la land of dollars and cents, blind and apathetic to the cries of Mother Nature and Penangites. Don’t make promises if you have no intention of keeping them! Time to wake up before you are kicked out in the next GE!

Many of my Indonesian Chinese friends keep telling me to be wary of DAP.

This party is evil,they continually reminded me.Malaysia is such a beauty, a real peaceful and harmonious country for everybody,why must this DAP tried so hard to destroy her? 

History of the Indonesian Chinese may repeat itself here in Malaysia for the Chinese community if they were to continue supporting DAP in creating unending mistrusts for the moderate Malays.

What would DS Najib do if forced to the corner?

Malays are Malay, for race survival they would unite under any circumstances. Prove me wrong? 

Back in the 60s,the Chinese communist party and the Chinese Nationalist party Kuomintang both having vast local supports due to their excessive financial capability were head on with each other until the end of President Sukarno's era.The new President Suharto realised that these troublesome Chinese must be marginalised somehow to save Indonesia from chaos.

The new gov't started by forcing them to change their name to Indonesian,Chinese characters were not allowed for display in public area,majority of the Chinese schools were closed,income tax dept were all over them to ensure that they pay back what they have over taken,business licences were limited to them to prevent them from controlling the economy and so on and so on.

Do we want all these to happen here in Malaysia?The opposition wouldn't care a hood of what would happen to the populace and the country.What they wanted for all these years is to topple the moderate UMNO-BN to form a government of their own regardless of all consequences.

After the GE13,as evidently seen that the PR coalition have had brought the Chinese to no where and of late,their MPs are digging graves for the Chinese and the non Malay to jump into.The Chinese community better wake up and started thinking seriously before things spiralled out of control.

Going head on with the ruling UMNO moderates bring us to no where,you are only forcing them to take extreme measures to further excluding all the non Malays in the political arena for their own survival.

Hidup Malaysia!
