Chua Soi Lek – I do not like or hate him. I pity him

Former MCA President Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek can deny until the cows come home and allege that I had twisted his words in claiming that he had likened UMNO-MCA relationship to father-and-son relationship but just ask the Malaysian reading public what conclusions they would draw from Chua’s earlier and subsequent statements.

May be Chua had not expected the intensity of the fallout of his “when your father gives you money, will you ask your dad where the money comes from” statement, but it shows that there are things for even an old hand in politics to learn.

Chua is not stupid or dense, although he is prepared to sound stupid or dense if this will help his cause. Read the rest of this entry »

Hadi has proved himself a disgrace to political Islam as he cannot comply with my 48-hour challenge to substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan

PAS President, Datuk Haji Hadi Awang has proved himself a disgrace to political Islam as he cannot comply with my 48-hour challenge to substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan.

I am reminded of Saturday’s 47th ABIM annual congress at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia in Nilai themed “Visi Islam dalam aspirasi Malaysia Baharu” and the keynote address by Professor Datuk Dr. Siddiq Fadzil on “Malaysia Baharu & Kesinambuangan Reformasi Islahiy”, where Dr. Siddiq stressed that the prerequisite for the building of a New Malaysia is to undertake a “human and cultural transformation”.

Most important questions for all MCA leaders are not whether MCA leaving BN but whether MCA dare to denounce Najib and 1MDB scandal for the infamy of Malaysia becoming a global kleptocracy and vow support to Pakatan Harapan to transform Malaysia from global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

MCA must thank its former MCA President, Datuk Chua Soi Lek for crystallising some of the issues which MCA must confront if it is to survive after being reduced from a 7/11 into a ½ political party from the 2013 to the 2018 General Election, i.e. a party with seven MPs and 11 State Assemblymen to a party with one MP and two Assemblymen!

At its height, MCA had 30 MPs and four federal Ministers, but in the 2018 general election, it secured only 639,165 votes (or the support at most 200,000 Chinese voters although it boasts of a membership of more than a million members).

UMNO and all present and former BN parties (including UMNO, MCA and MIC) should return RM470 million to public coffers as they had been misappropriated from 1MDB

I was earlier asked at the 47th ABIM annual congress at Universiti Islam Malaysia in Nilai about the comment of the former MCA President, Datuk Dr. Chua Soi Lek about the linkage between the MCA and the world-infamous MDB scandal, which caused Malaysians whether inside or the country to hold their heads in shame for the past few years when thinking of the infamy and ignominy of Malaysia being regarded as a global kleptocracy.

I have since seen news report that listed the RM470 million from former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal banking accounts and which were traceable to 1MDB, which had been diverted to Barisan Nasional parties for the 13th general election, including the following.

Hadi will be a disgrace to political Islam if he cannot substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan

I am astonished by the allegation by the PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang that DAP is guilty of “sikap diskriminasi…yang tidak menyokong hasrat kerajaan untuk membawa pembagunan saksama kepada lima negeriu termasuk Terengganu dan Kelantan”.

In a Berita Harian online report which appeared at 4.07 pm yesterday, under the heading “PAS dakwa DAP diskriminasi pembangunan Pantai Timur”, Hadi was quoted as saying that “diskriminasi DAP terhadap hasrat Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk memajukan negeri Pantai Timur begitu ketara”.

The Berita Harian report said:

“Beliau berkata, DAP yang mendominasi kerusi di Pantai Barat dilihat sebagai punca yang boleh menggagalkan usaha Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk berlaku adil dan saksama dalam membawa pembangunan kepada negeri.

“’DAP bersikap tidak jujur terhadap keadilan apabila kepemimpinan parti itu masih berdegil kerana enggan mempedulikan pembangunan di negeri Pantai Timur dan Utara, termasuk Perlis serta Sabah dan Sarawak.

“’PAS menyokong penuh hasrat Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad untuk melaksanakan pembangunan di Pantai Timur dan Utara supaya pembangunan lebih setara dapat dilakukan.

“’PAS juga meminta semua parti komponen Barisan Nasional (BN) yang bersama-sama sebagai pembangkang supaya menyokong hasrat Perdana Menteri untuk melakukan reformasi kerajaan.

“’Namun malang apabila ada parti komponen dalam PH sendiri tidak menyokong dan saya berterus terang parti itu adalah DAP,’ katanya ketika ditemui di kediamannya di Rusila, di sini, hari ini.

“Beliau mengulas reformasi kerajaan yang digariskan dalam Kajian Separuh Penggal Rancangan Malaysia Ke-11 (RMK-11) dibentangkan Dr Mahathir di Parlimen, semalam.

“Abdul Hadi yang juga Ahli Parlimen Marang berkata, contoh paling ketara ialah sikap tidak jujur kepemimpinan DAP apabila tidak bersetuju dengan cadangan Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk mengembalikan royalti minyak sebanyak 20 peratus kepada negeri pengeluar, termasuk Terengganu dan Kelantan.

“Katanya, DAP sebenarnya mewarisi sikap penjajah apabila meninggalkan negeri yang majoriti penduduknya Bumiputera.”

Hadi will be a disgrace to political Islam if he cannot substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan.

Lies and falsehoods are as sinful in Islam as in other great religions in the world, and no honourable religious teacher will resort to lies and falsehoods to advance his personal agenda.

I am giving Hadi two days to substantiate his allegation or he will stand convicted in the court of public opinion in Malaysia and the world of resorting to lies and falsehoods to pursue to his political ends.

I do not know whether Hadi’s latest resort to lies and falsehoods is part of the PAS’ latest effort to save some of the “shipwrecked” passengers in Barisan Nasional.

A Malaysiakini report yesterday quoted the PAS Mentri Bensar of Kelantan and PAS Deputy spiritual adviser, Ahmad Yakob, as saying that based on developments before the May 9 general election, PAS foresaw that the “BN ship” would be damaged, and that although PAS does not want to build a new ship to save BN, PAS must save some of the passengers who “were experts in certain fields who could help further the Islamic struggle”.

He said PAS could save and “use the passengers from that ship for the benefit of our struggle”.

I am intrigued by this new political theory of PAS Islamic struggle, and wonder whether they are thinking of the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi, the UMNO Deputy President, Mohamad Hassan Vice Presidents Ismail Sabry Yaacob, Mahdzir Khalid, Khaled Nordin, UMNO Secretary-General Tan Sri Annuar Musa, and wider in the Barisan Nasional context, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong and why PAS is so ambivalent and ambiguous about its stand on the 1MDB scandal and the infamy of Malaysia as a global kleptocracy all these years.

Is Wee one of the “shipwrecked” BN leaders to be saved by Hadi and PAS?

This is why I had pointedly asked whether Wee is prepared to redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament and outside to denounce Najib and the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and pledge full support to Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy.

Or is Wee going the follow the ambivalent and ambiguous stand of Hadi’s PAS?

The most outstanding aspect of the last five months of post-14th General Election, whether in Parliament or outside, is the conspiracy of silence involving all UMNO/Barisan Nasional leaders (including PAS), especially those who had been Ministers in Najib’s Cabinet like Wee Ka Siong, on the greatest and worst corruption scandal in the country’s history – the monstrous international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal which had given Malaysia the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of a global kleptocracy.

In the past five months, Wee Ka Siong had never spoken about the 1MDB issue, nor had any other UMNO/BN/PAS leaders, whether in Parliament or outside, although it is the single biggest global issue confronting Malaysia.

Can Wee explain how many statements he had issued since he had lost his Cabinet position because of the toppling of the Barisan Nasional government in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, and whether there was a single statement on the greatest national shame in history – the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal?

Is Wee prepared to make a clean breast and tell Malaysians the whole story of MCA’s involvement in the 1MDB scandal as MCA is not an innocent party in the 1MDB scandal.

Former MCA President Datuk Dr. Chua Soi Lek had in November 2015 made a startling revelation about Najib’s RM2.6 billion “donation” scandal in his personal banking accounts before the 13th General Election, when he recollected how Najib had in a BN Supreme Council meeting before the 13th general election made an “unprecedented pledge to fund BN component parties”.

Chua had said:

“I remember clearly. I was the first to thank him.

“I said I have joined politics for more than 20 years and have gone through five general elections. (We) have never received a single sen from BN before.

“So everyone agreed and many thanked him. When the election came, he delivered – he was able to disburse some funds (to the component parties).

Is the present MCA leadership under Wee as the MCA Deputy President prepared to come clean about the whole sordid tale of involvement of MCA in the 1MDB scandal.

This has become all the more pertinent, relevant and pressing in view of the grouses publicly expressed by UMNO leaders over the 45 charges of corruption, criminal breach of trust and money-laundering which had been levelled against the UMNO President and former Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi at the Kuala Lumpur High Court today.

For instance, the UMNO Batu Pahat chief and former Deputy Minister, Mohd Puad Zakarshi, in alleging that the prosecution of Zahid is an attempt by the Pakatan Harapan government to “kill” UMNO, had asked why the no action had been taken against leaders of other Barisan Nasuional or former component parties?

He asked: “There are no MCA, MIC or Gerakan leaders being hauled up and charged. Why? The answer is simple – Mahathir is not interested. To him, all these parties are dead and do not need to be ‘killed’ further. But Umno seems to die hard.”

Will Wee answer Puad.

Or will the answer come from former MCA President, Dr. Chua Soi Lek at the launching of his autobiography, Like Me or Hate Me: Rising from the Political Ashes, in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow?

When will Wee Ka Siong redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament to denounce Najib and the 1MDB scandal and pledge full support to Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

MCA is having national party elections early next month.

But when is the sole MCA MP in the Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong, who is aspiring to be the new MCA President, going to redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament to denounce former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak for the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and pledge full support to the Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

Three unusual sights during Mahathir’s speech on 11th Malaysia Plan Mid-Term Review in Parliament yesterday

There were three unusual sights during the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s speech on the 11th Malaysia Plan Mid-Terrm Review in Parliament yesterday.

First, the empty seat opposite the Prime Minister across the parliamentary aisle in the Opposition benches. The seat was empty as the Parliamentary Opposition Leader had been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and expected to be charged in court today on 45 counts of corruption, criminal breach of trust and money-laundering.

Second, the second Opposition seat next to the Parliamentary Opposition Leader, which is occupied by the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak. During Mahathir’s entire speech on the 11th Malaysia Plan Mid-Term Review, Najib never raised his head to look at the Prime Minister, eyeball to eyeball so to say, but kept his head down.

A concession of total moral and political defeat and capitulation by Najib Razak? Read the rest of this entry »

Why is Wee Ka Siong admitting he is part of the Najib propagandist and cybertrooper outfit to paint the Pakatan Harapan Ministers in the worst possible light?

I wonder why the MCA Deputy President, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong is so impatient as to admit that he is part of the Najib Razak propaganda and cybertrooper outfit to paint Pakatan Harapan Ministers in the worst possible light to bring about the downfall of the Pakatan Harapan Federal Government before the 15th General Election in 2023?

Two days ago on Tuesday, 16th October 2018, I issued a statement advising the Education Minister, Maszlee Malik to stop talking about socks and shoes so as not to fall into the trap of former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and UMNO propagandists and cybertroopers to project the image that he is a very mediocre Minister who has very limited vision and objectives in the transformation of education in the country and instead prove that he is a better Education Minister than Najib himself.

The first to respond to my statement was not Najib or any of his UMNO propagandists, but Wee Ka Siong, when I had not even thought of him or referred to the MCA!

What could make Wee “confessing without being beaten”? Clearly, he is suffering from a “guilty conscience” of being part of Najib propagandist and cybertrooper outfit although it is over five months since the 14th General Election where UMNO/BN was toppled from Putrajaya.

Advice to Maszlee to stop talking about socks and shoes so as not to fall into the trap of Najib and UMNO propagandists and cybertroopers but to prove that he is a better Education Minister than Najib

I advise the Education Minister Maszlee Malik to stop talking about socks and shoes so as not to fall into the trap of former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and UMNO propagandists and cyber-troopers to project the image that he is a very mediocre Minister who has very limited vision and objectives in the transformation of education in the country.

The latest example is the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak staging a “cat crying over a dead mouse” act to humiliate Mazslee, pretending to laud Maszlee for his “farsightedness” in looking to change the colour of school students shoes and socks and suggesting that Maszlee should look into the colour of school children’s uniforms and school buildings.

Najib even feigned outrage at the criticisms directed against Maszlee over the issue of shoes and socks, and said it was a pity that BN Ministers had not realised the importance of the colour of shoes and socks to “the wholesome development of a student”.

This is a very low blow by Najib and Malaysians cannot but ask how much lower Najib would descend in order to distract attention from his world infamy of a global kleptocracy – the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal.

Today, Maszlee lamented that his “trivial” comments about the colour of students’ socks and school was highlighted by Utusan Malaysia, while his more important point about university hospitals was ignored. Read the rest of this entry »

PAS leadership admitting for the first time PAS is “down” but PAS will go further “down” if the PAS leadership continues to take a contrary position from two former PAS Presidents Fadzil Nor and Yusuf Rawa and former Mursydul Am Nik Aziz

At last, the PAS leadership of Datuk Seri Hadi Awang has admitted that under its stewardship, PAS is “down”.

I have never said that PAS is “out” but I dare to forecast that so long as the Hadi leadership continues to take a contrary position from the two former PAS Presidents Fadzil Nor and Yusuf Rawa and the former PAS Mursydul Am Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, PAS will continue to go further “down” in the Malaysian political landscape.

In response to my statement yesterday, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan said I should not underestimate PAS party despite its weaker results in the May 9 general election and although PAS is “down”, it is not “out”.

The Kota Bharu MP noted that his party had gone to the polls without relying on the support of others, unlike Amanah, PPBM or even DAP.

Is the PAS Secretary-General suggesting that that he envisages a day when PAS on its own can win a general election in Malaysia, without support from any other political party? If so, the PAS leaders are living in a world of their own, unrelated to the realities on the ground. Read the rest of this entry »

Port Dickson by-election is as history-making as the 14th General Election result of May 9, 2018 with a three-point five-month verdict endorsing a New Malaysia, Anwar Ibrahim as the eighth Prime Minister-designate and a New Port Dickson to restore PD’s previous glory and pre-eminence

The Port Dickson by-election is as history-making as the 14th General Election result of May 9, 2018 with a three-point five-month verdict endorsing a New Malaysia, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the eighth Prime Minister-designate after Tun Dr. Mahathir and a New Port Dickson to restore Port Dickson’s previous pre-eminence and glory as a premier tourist destination.

Despite a low voter turn-out of 58.3%, Anwar secured 31,016 votes or a 23,560-vote majority, which eclipsed that of the PKR’s Danyal Balagopal Abdullah who won the seat in the 14th general election by a margin of 17,710 votes with a voter turnout of 83%. Read the rest of this entry »

Its all too late, as the need to re-open Altantunya murder case is no more a distant thunder but in the very forefront of national consciousness of all policy makers and Malaysians – thanks to Najib himself

I must congratulate former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak for landing a new occupation – making a cameo appearance in a South Korean television drama as it not easy for a former Prime Minister of Najib’s “stature” to find a new occupation.

But he has probably committed the biggest blunder in his whole life when he tried to be a “hero” on the issue of re-opening of investigation into the mysterious murder of Mongolian model Altantunya Shaariibuu, striking the posture that he would order his assistant to lodge a police report against himself so that the authorities can start investigating if he was involved in several high profile murders while he was in power – which included the Altantunya Shaariibuu murder case.

The Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) report should be tabled as a White Paper in Parliament and a Parliamentary Select Committee on Institutional Reforms formed on the CEP proposals to be implemented, including the system for the appointment of judges

The Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) report should be tabled as a White Paper in Parliament and a Parliamentary Select Committee on Institutional Reforms formed on the CEP proposals to be implemented, including the system for the appointment of judges.

Recently, the CEP chairman Tun Daim Zainuddin called on the government to make the CEP’s recommendations available to the public.

He said that as part of the CEP’s efforts to look into the government finances, it had interviewed more than 300 individuals, including bankers, businessmen, civil servants, civil society members and union officials.
Those interviews had revealed a culture of turning a blind eye towards corruption.

Will Najib join me in a joint petition to the Prime Minister to re-open investigations into Mongolian Altantunya Shaariibuu? Will he second my motion if I propose in Parliament a re-opening of investigations of the Altantunya murder?

I said on Thursday that former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is guilty of telling lies almost every day.

To my astonishment, Najib immediately complied by telling a lie which I exposed in my statement yesterday.

Last evening, Najib was responsible for another lie when his aide lodged a police report to demand investigations into my claims that several high-profile deaths or murder cases should be reinvestigated. Read the rest of this entry »

How theatrical! When will Najib “order” police report against himself on the 1MDB scandal to establish his innocence?

How theatrical! When will former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak order his assistant to lodge a police report against himself on the 1MDB scandal to establish his innocence?

This will be the thought of many when they read news report of Najib “ordering” a police report against himself, so that the authorities can start investigating and establish his innocence of several high profile murders while he was in power.

I said yesterday that Najib is guilty of telling lies almost every day.

He has told another lie.

He said I have made “repeated calls” to the authorities to re-open investigations into high profile mysterious deaths.

Let me tell Najib that I had only once called for the re-opening of investigations into the high profile mysterious deaths like Altantunya Shaariibuu, Husain Najadi, Kevin Morais and Teoh Boon Hock after the Pakatan Harapan came into power in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 – and not “repeated calls”!

Najib’s theatrics remind of two other theatrical events. Read the rest of this entry »

Great news and fantastic breakthrough, Nie Ching!

Its great news and fantastic breakthrough, the announcement by the Deputy Education Minister, Teo Nie Ching in Kuching that stateless children in the country can now enroll in government schools beginning next year by merely producing their birth certificate.

Nie Ching said undocumented children still enroll themselves but they have two years to produce the necessary documents.

Apart from birth certificates, these children could produce either their adoption certificate if they are adopted or any court order.

It is estimated that there are about 300,000 stateless children under the age of 18 in the country.

The Education Minister, Maszlee Malik and the Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching must be commended for resolving this very nettlesome problem, as in the past, it’s quite troublesome for them to enroll in government schools.

Teo’s announcement that the new policy also applies to them continuing their studies in secondary schools, allowing them to take public exams like the PT3, SPM, STPM is also be be applauded.

The great news and fantastic breakthrough announced by Nie Ching is the New Malaysia we want to build – a New Malaysia with greater compassion and more emphasis on human rights – after the historic decision of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018.

Will Isa and PAS candidate lose their deposits in the Port Dickson by-election tomorrow?

The polling survey by Institute Darul Ehsan (IDE) on the eve of the by-election tomorrow is most interesting – not whether Anwar Ibrahim is on track to defeat his six opponents or Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan will sink to the bottom, but that the PAS candidate would only maintain its 11% of the votes in the 14th General
Election while former Mentri Besar Mohd Isa Samad would only garner 10 per cent of the votes cast.

If Isa Samad had not contested, and the bulk of the majority of UMNO votes had gone to the PAS candidate as conspired by UMNO and PAS leaders, then the PAS candidate would be able to retain his deposit in the by-election as PAS secured just short of 11% of the votes cast in the last general election (short of the 12.5% of the votes cast necessary to retain his deposit).

Many had expected Isa to do better than the PAS candidate in the by-election but the IDE survey shows otherwise, that PAS would maintain its 11% of the votes cast previously while Isa would get only 10 per cent of the votes cast, both forfeiting their deposits in being unable to get at least 12.5% of the votes cast.

This will have several implications. Read the rest of this entry »

An Open Letter to the Voters of Port Dickson – Be the first parliamentary constituency to endorse the 14th General Election result and claim ownership for the task of building a New Malaysia

Dear Voters of Port Dickson,

Malaysians saved Malaysia and made history on May 9, 2018, giving Malaysians a second chance to reset nation-building policies so that Malaysia will not become a failed and rogue state, on top of being a kakistocracy and global kleptocracyl

On Saturday, the voters of Port Dickson by-election has the opportunity the make history for the second time in six months, not only to vote for Anwar Ibrahim, the eighth Prime Minister-designate for Malaysia, but even more important, to endorse the 14th General Election result of May 9, 2018 and to claim ownership for the task of building of a New Malaysia.

A New Malaysia cannot be accomplished in a hundred days or in six months, but will take a decade of two. All Malaysians must develop a Big Picture and Long-term Vision perspectives. Read the rest of this entry »

Can Najib explain why he had never expressed any compunction or remorse for transforming Malaysia into a global kleptocracy in his nine years as 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia?

I read the latest fulminations by Datuk Seri Najib Razak with shock and sadness, that the former occupant of the highest political office in the land could be so devoid of both sense and sensibility that he could indulge in a daily nonsensical verbal diarrhoea agaisnt me, confirming that he has no respect whatsover for for the noble values in life, i.e. truth, justice and honour.

Before the 14th General Election, he indulged in lies, falsehoods and fake news as alleging that when Pakatan Harapan captures power, I will edge out Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia, that the DAP has a Christian agenda to replace Islam with Christianity as the official religion of the country (when I am not even a Christian) and that the Malay monarchical system will be abolished and Malaysia become a republic.

This is the sixth month of the Pakatan Harapan government in Putrajaya, and none of these great lies have come to pass – and they will not come to pass under any Pakatan Harapan government in the future.

Now, after UMNO/BN’s surprising defeat in the 14th General Election, where he was toppled as Malaysia’s sixth Prime Minister – although he had expected to win big and even recapture parliamentary two-thirds majority with gerrymandering of parliamentary constituencies, undemocratic practices and repressive rule – Najib is resorting to comparatively smaller lies against Pakatan Harapan and DAP leaders.

Najib is guilty of telling lies almost every day. Read the rest of this entry »
