    1Malaysia is just a deception of the socalled illegal leaders losing all directions in running the country.

    The bank Negara Malaysia had a declline of RM157 billion in assets which are also the national wealth from May 2008 to May 2009.

    So where has all those money gone since TDM?

    First father and son PMs….with father involved in May13th riots…forcing Tunku to resign. Son… forcing Dollah to resign.
    Similarities of Tunku and Dollah personalities are starling close.
    End of “RAHMAN”……..end of UMNO BARU.

    I saw that gaping hole on the day the photo was first published. It was just another ‘Truly Malaysia’ moment. It would have been a wonderful surprise if the construction had appeared to be flawless.

    I wonder if there’s anybody in BN who actually regrets the continuous and obvious stumbling from embarrassment to embarrassment? I wonder if KuLi is taking a break from a bit of DIY at home at the moment thinking “Look at the state of that! I could have done it better myself!”?

    eryDo come to Sabah to see the illegal Sabah UMNO Hq in a newly completed building in Karamunsing?

    That building does not belong to UMNO but it is socalled UMNO Hq. There is a big story on this weird case.

    If you sit in the lounge in the Hotel Dynasty in Api-Api Centre, you will see the flyover (recently completed) slicing over the UMNO building like what you see the same symbol of a click in 1 behind Najib.

    Actually no key political parties in Sabah has own major building to stay in power. That happened to USNO (missing own Hq) and then Berjaya (soon own hq also sold) after losing sudden power; and Sabah UMNO hq is not actually owned by UMNO baru but by a questioned owner and funded by questioned methods as per Police Reports and RPK’s articles.

    So UMNO is in bad omen and that is good news for Malaysians in GE 13 soon.

    How not to have cracks ? UMNO’s publicity organs like Utusan are downright racist, and they don’t do anything about it. This leads to retaliation by the Chinese newspapers, which then leads to even more calls by UMNOputras for the “pendatangs” to be grateful or leave the country.

    This was never meant as 1Malaysia. It was always meant to be 1Malay and the non-Malay parties within BN know it but are never in a position to do anything about it.

    1Malaysia is about charging Anwar with consensual sex when the complainant lodged a report on sodomy, and now we know why – there are no physical signs of sodomy, so it must have been consensual. And if it is consensual, then the complainant should have been charged as well. Of course he wasn’t charged because the he happened to have a meeting with Najis prior to his report of sodomy.

    Surely IMalaysia can’t be Najis’ idea of putting the country on the world map for things that defy common sense. But then maybe 30 years from now, we will have our very own Najis’ Believe It or Not.

Instead, we should be glad that Najib is doing something positive and if we are going to act the way we do, we are just behaving the very way in which we are condemning. Let’s not get overboard.

    ///since there’s no physical signs of sodomy, so it must have been consensual, and since the complainant have a meeting with NR prior to his report of sodomy…..can we safely say the complainant and NR have a consensual sodomy act and than put the blame on Anwar/// – frankyap posted Today at 07: 26.32

    If there’re no physical signs of sodomy, then there is no sodomy, whether forced or consensual. They’re not interested in showing force in the act. Even consensual is an offence by secular criminal law and a henious sin/offence by Islamic laws and values immediately rendering AI unfit for any public office let alone Opposition head or future PM. As Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (AI) is glue to bind disparate PR’ parties together, AI’s credibility has to be destroyed if PR is to be undone from ruling coalition’s standpoint.

    Their advisers will recommend a three pronged counter strategy to destroy internal cohesion of PR – and buttress internal strength and popularity of BN.

    The First Prong: To destroy PR’s cohesion, the glue AI must first be dissolved. Secondly, PR’s weakness must be exploited to the hilt ie the greed for power and positions amongst PR’s officials, assemblymen and politicians. So money/positions have to be thrown at them to crossover either at state level as happened in Perak (and hopefully other vulnerable PR controlled state govts) or party level in case of PAS under euphemism of “Unity Talk”. At the same time MACC will keep a close survelliance on all these people. Sedition Act will be used when they speak out of line.

    The Second Prong is to recover Non Malay votes whilst not alienating Malay support. Hence 1M, PSD Scholarship based on pure merit, perseverance with teaching Mathematics and Science in English (forcing AI to take an opposing position to that), whilst the No. 2 reaffirmed Malay rights and existing affirmative policies, never mind the irreconcilability of one policy based on Meritocracy and the other, non-Meritocratic Affirmative Policies.

    As hungry people will become enraged voters against the ruling coalition, the Third Prong is (understandably) to manage economy in such turbulent times by making it investment friendly by selective liberalisation (so as not to undermine pre-existing Affirmative Policies too much), shore the financial institutions by Bank Negara’s conduct of stress test for non performing loans, blanket government guarantee for bank depsits until 2010, free liquidity by keeping down fixed deposits rates and keping costs of funds low for business borrowers (figuring prominently developers/contractors and their purchasers) to shore up, if necessary, artificially, the demand against over-supply of properties, since the property sector is one of the main pillars holding together various spokes in the entire domestic economic wheel – all these in hope that we could circumvent and hold together until the global economic hurricane blows over and by-pass us!

    More than ever, especially for a leader laboring under the handicap of various political baggages, the very continuance of office and survival of power – and systemetic dismantling of these political baggages by peoples’ forgottence) would provide the impetus to strive very hard and strenously to make all three pronged approach work so that the trend against ruling coalition will be arrested, and Opposition will not have the chance to gain power in the coming elections!

Of course he can rape a person without leaving a mark! In fact, he can rape a person without them even knowing it! He is actually a member of an ancient jewish arsassin cult.

    The 3 BN component parties are out to perpetuate racial politics, 1Malaysia is just a way for them to avoid certain defeat at the 13GE. If BN leaders really want to embrace the 1Malaysia concept, then all the 14 component parties should dissolve and become a single political party. By their inaction, it is crystal clear that the leaders themselves do not agree with the 1Malaysia concept, then how to expect the people to understand that the leaders really do mean it?

    Jeffrey,you said forced or consensual,these guys are not interested in a sodomy case like this one we talking about,then AI case is a kind of evil intentional conspiracy between the complainant and NR to overthrow AI from politic.After all if you can’t provide evident/s of consensual or force,then again AI has no case to answer,hence it should be dismissed immediately. It’s your word against mine,no witness, no contract, no nothing ,no case,hence both can go free.But why isn’t in this AI case ?.What’s the fuss,then ?.

How can one peddle along with the concept when there is no Chinese, Indians, Ibans, Kadazans and other races standing unified? While it may sound petty but the underlying truth is indeniable.

    “As hungry people will become enraged voters against the ruling coalition, …” (Jeffrey)

    Jeffrey is trying to do a very profound analysis on the economic situation which Najib faces now. However, whether the hungry people will become enraged voters against the ruling coalition remains as a question which dictates different answer in a different situation even if a certain State Government is having much more disposable natural resources on hands than the other State Government.

    For the past 51 years, Barisan Nasional (or its predecessor the Alliance) was able to win the majority votes in the General Election mainly due to one reason, that is, the ruling coalition was able to take control of massive scale of natural resources being bestowed by God and made use (or abuse) of these natural resources such as State Lands and Oil Incomes as the bait to entice people to vote for it through the practice of Grace Politics.

    With the fast depletion of aerable lands and timber resources in the industrialised states such as Selangor, Penang, and Negeri Sembilan, there will be not many ways and means left for the present State Governments, whether from BN or from PR, of these three states to exploit in order to fish much more votes by using land grants or timber concession grants as the bait.

    Some agricultural states like Kelantan, Trengganu and Pahang are still having plenty of state lands which are yet to be exploited and can be given by the respective state government to its respective party supporters as the granted land in order to raise the party campaign fund for General Election. However, the people’s political inclination in Kelantan is always leaning towards PAS whereas the people of Pahang still prefer Umno. And the people of Trengganu are quite divisive in politics, with past records indicated that about 50% of them wanted PAS and about 1/4 of them wanted Umno and the other 1/4 of the Trengganu people might want the royal patronage of the Sultan. Definitely Grace Politics will still play an important role in these three states.

    Perlis is a small state but the Perlis people are inclined to obey to the Raja of Perlis because Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Jamalullail was a king who is always friendly and close to the subject. Even though there are not many natural resources found in Perlis, the people of Perlis will tend to obey the Raja in the political inclination.

    Now the states which are found to be shaky in the political inclination are Johor, Melaka, Kedah and Perak. Most Malay voters in Melaka might like to uphold their status as a privileged ethnic group in Malaysia in order to preserve their Malay traditions, which are largely influenced by the Minang Karbau sectarian group of people. In Johor, since many Johoreans are able to earn relatively much better income by working in Singapore and also from the business transactions with Singaporeans who visited Johor, those Johoreans who stand to gain from the good relationship with Singapore (including the Malay businessmen who exported vegetables, fishes, chickens, beefs and muttons to Singapore) will quite likely prefer to vote for BN so long as BN chooses to maintain a good bilateral diplomatic relation with Singapore.

    Kedah and Perak are much more difficult to predict. It seems that PAS State Government of Kedah cannot do much in bringing the economic prosperity to Kedah due to PAS’s conservativeness in economic policy by requiring some housing projects to meet the quota of selling by at least 50% of the number of houses built to the prospective Malay house buyers. Such a policy will largely curb and restrain the demand for housing in Kedah. In Perak, Pakatan Rakyat will stand a good chance to win by the next election because the Perakian people are going to have strong will of wanting to teach Najib a lesson for his illegal, illegitimate, undemocratic, and gutter-style power grab in Perak.

    Sabah and Sarawak are two states which are full of variables during a general election. Whether Sabahans will continue to cast votes for BN when the next general election comes will all depend on whether Sabahan tribal leaders are going to trust Najib more than their trust in Anwar. As for Sarawak, I think the coming state-wide election of Sarawak will be the time for Sarawakians to say a big “NO” to the greedy and dictatorial Iban tribal head Taib Mahmood due to the shameful and eye-sored unequal distribution of income in Sarawak!

    In short, even though economic factor is important in deciding which party camp, BN or PR, will win in a general election, economic factor is not the sole crucial factor. There are other factors which may be equally important in determining the decisiveness of people in their political behaviour of casting a vote, whether in favour of BN or in favour of PR. These other factors include the loyalty towards the state ruler, the degree of people’s religiosity, the economic interdependency between the Malaysian people’s home country and their neighbouring country, and the political passion towards the opposition party which is perceived by a voter as the representation of voices of righteousness and natural justice.

    Below are part of the news reported by Malaysian Insider on 29.06.2009 on Najib’s intended new policy:

    “In addition, the Najib administration is also considering setting up a RM10 billion National Equity Fund. The beneficiaries of the fund will be young Bumiputera companies.

    Government officials told The Malaysian Insider that the plan is to identify new companies, take a stake in these entities, help them list on Bursa Malaysia and exit as a shareholder when good returns on the investment are realised.

    It is unclear whether this method of nurturing a class of Bumiputera businessmen is going to be different from the discredited approach used in the 1990s to help create corporate captains like Tajudin Ramli and Halim Saad.

    The corporate class then benefited from sweetheart deals and government largesse.

    Their brittleness was exposed during the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997.

    The fund is also an acknowledgement that Najib has to balance the liberalisation of the economy with a safety net for the Bumiputera community and a reaffirmation of a reality of doing business in Malaysia: that the interests of the Malay/Muslim community cannot be ignored by any prime minister.” (Malaysian Insider)

    So, our genius PM is going to adopt the outdated tactics, the Cantonese people’s so-called LOO (means toilet) tactics, which had ever been used by Dato Seri Lee San Choon and Mr Tan Koon Swan of MCA during late 1970s and early 1980s for doing the political fund raising (through hanky panky management practice) in the scheme of Kojadi. By assessing the inflation-adjusted negative internal rate of return given by Kojadi and by the Unit Trust operated by Johor State Government called Dana Johor throughout a long investment period, I do not see that many Malaysian people will be interested to bet their hard-earned money on a prodigal political playboy, lest they may have to either lose their pants or lose all their coffin money into the hands of this political joker!

    1Malaysia not only has cracked but will soon explode!

    World Bank says Malaysia’s governance worsened in last five years
    By Lee Wei Lian

    KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 — A study by the World Bank suggests that Malaysia’s governance has deteriorated since 2003. The country fared worse in four out of six good governance categories in the World Bank study and improved in only two as of 2008.

    The nation also lags well behind the scores of high income countries such as Australia, Japan and Switzerland. It scored better than Indonesia but remained far behind Singapore. Indonesia, however, saw its governance scores improve across the board since 2003.

    Malaysia saw its performance drop in four categories — voice and accountability (level of democracy), political stability, regulatory quality and control of corruption.

    In terms of its relative position to other countries, Malaysia also fell further behind countries in the same categories. It recorded an improvement in performance and relative position in only two categories — government effectiveness and rule of law.

    The World Bank study uses a percentile method to show the relative ranking of a country. For example, a country with a ranking of 60 means that its score is higher than 60 per cent of countries in the study.

    Malaysia has a rank of 32 (2003 ranking — 38) for voice and accountability, 50 (57) for political stability, 84 (80) for government effectiveness, 60 (70) regulatory quality, 65 (63) for rule of law and 63 (65) for control of corruption.

    It is an indication of the divergent paths that Malaysia and Singapore took upon their split in 1965 that Singapore is the highest ranking country in three categories and near the top in all except for voice and accountability, where it ranked in the bottom third with Malaysia.

    While Indonesia ranked in the bottom half for all categories, it nevertheless saw both its relative position and raw scores rise in the past five years. Significantly, Indonesia appears to be doing better than both Malaysia and Singapore when it comes to the practice of democracy.

    While the study does not make a link between a country’s income and good governance, broadly speaking, countries that enjoy high incomes such as Australia, Canada, Sweden and Switzerland tend to score and rank near the top in all categories, while the poorest countries are likelier to cluster near the bottom.

    Malaysia’s numbers suggest that the government’s emphasis on service delivery over the past five years is gaining traction but it is losing the fight against corruption despite numerous promises to eradicate the scourge.

    Voice and accountability, defined as the extent to which a country’s citizens are able to participate in selecting their government, as well as freedom of expression, freedom of association, and a free media also deteriorated during this period.

    In the category of political stability and absence of violence/terrorism, which measures the perceptions of the likelihood that the government will be destabilised or overthrown by unconstitutional or violent means, including domestic violence and terrorism, Malaysia peaked in 2005, the year after the ruling Barisan Nasional government won its biggest ever mandate.

    It went downhill from there and reached its lowest point in the last five years in 2008, which saw protestors and police clash on the streets and was also the year that the opposition made record gains at the ballot box.

    The World Bank study, called the Worldwide Governance Indicators project, reports aggregate and individual governance indicators for 212 countries and territories over the period from 1996 to 2008.

    Surly he is blaming on world recessions…while investment to other S.E.A countries grew.
    Today he announced more relaxed and attractive packages to lure investors.
    When getting better….the will come out with their smart ways to control investors…like before.
    So many move out….because UMNO interfere and insists they sell their products to a UMNO company to make the said products much more expensive to consumers.
    Especially medical products…giants ran away.
    Mitsubishi was forced to give up Proton..
    UMNO is welknown to be ungrateful sly foxes.
    Anything concerning money….the are greedy for it.
    Now we a forced to employ maids …much higher salaries…due to UMNO’s lousy managements and reputation on human rights.
    They treat certain Malaysians as second class.
    How do you expect UMNO improve on human rights status…to foreigners?
    Lets see….how many foreigners will invest under an unelected PM.
    Democracy is getting from bad to worst.
