Najib/Hisham – have you lost all power over Utusan spin-doctors?

UMNO’s spin doctors in Utusan Malaysia are scraping the bottom of the barrel bringing out of the woodwork discredited personalities to weave lies which positively damage Malaysia’s national interests and international image.

The latest incident is the surfacing of the discredited Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Rahim Noor who gave an interview with Mingguan Malaysia on Sunday alleging the Bersih 2.0 rally could open the door to Jews and Israel to infiltrate Malaysia as there were parties who wanted countries like Malaysia that was against Jews and Israel to be toppled.

Although Rahim Noor established his professional career as Special Branch Director (just as he destroyed his service as IGP because of his criminal assault of Anwar Ibrahim in the infamous “black eye” episode in 1998), he could have no evidence for his sensational allegation in the Mingguan Malaysia interview apart from a very fertile figment of imagination.

However, based on Rahim Noor’s unsupported allegation, Utusan Malaysia carried an editorial yesterday as good as warning that the “Jew are coming” as a result of the Bersih 2.0 rally.

Either the Utusan Malaysia spin doctors have the full endorsement and a blank cheque from the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein to spin their worst, or the Umno spin doctors are totally out of control and neither the Prime Minister nor the Home Minister has the power to exercise any control over them even when they go on a rampage positively damaging Malaysia’s national interests and international image.

Which is which, Najib and Hishammuddin?

    The Ibrahim Ali Award 2011 recipients–
    1. Rahim Noor for giving a black eye to the malay jew Anwar

    2. Koh TK for allowing the mata sepets and kakai botoys to be classified as ‘pendatangs’, almost the same category as the Filipino and Indon ‘pedatang harams’

    First it was communism….but it didn’t stick
    Then it was foreign government intrusion….it didn’t stick either
    Next it was anti-monarchy….and it didn’t stick either
    Next it was anti-Islam….and it didn’t stick either
    Now it is a Jewish conspiracy….and it won’t stick
    So the next thing Utusan will say is that it is an extra-terrestrial conspiracy….and it just might stick

    UMNO uses its supporters in a strange manner. They use people with impeccable credentials such as Rahim Thamby Chik and Rahim Noor.

    Najib is completely lost since after BERSIH 2 walk and his trips to England and Italy made it worst for him.
    Come 21st July…the 2 submarines will be headliners.
    He will be in orbit …sleeping ..eating and resting his very troubled mind.
    It is a typical common case…you asked for it….you will get it.
    It is every action has and equal reaction.
    It is a test for God’s laws.

    It is time we Malaysians think of the Jews as a human race rather than people who are all out to destroy the Muslims.The Jews live peacefully with all other races in the world and even in Israel.When a race is driven to the wall they will protect themselves.Jews had contributed to the progress of humanity including helping in greater understanding of Islam.Many Malaysian Muslim do not understand the feelings of the Jews that they are carried away by the ulamas who want their head.Though the Jews control one of the main mosques of Islam they have not prevented Muslims from visiting them including many muslims and non muslims political leaders from Malaysia.We spend billions of dollars buying military tecnologies from western countries when Israel can give bettter weapons at a cheaper rate.They are so advanced in many fields that Muslim nation will take another 100years to come near them.If oil dries out they have the technology other than nuclear energy to run any country.They are so well prepared that America defends them at all cost.Muslim nations should not make the mistake Gadaffi and Syria made.Malaysia should remember that other than Islam and the pilgrimage Arab nations contribute next to nothing to make Malaysia a strong country.Look at Singapore who had made full use of the Jews right from the 60s that they can put our military into shame within 30 minutes.Such is the capability of Singapore that as a nation they highly respect the Jews.We have nothing to lose and “the Jews are coming “are fears for the Kampong Malays who live in the Sarong of the village imams that they do not know the reality.It is time for Njaib to open up relation with Israel like what he did now by having diplomatic relation with the Vatican though many in the Umno felt the discomfort.Utusan Malaysia, the official fanatical organ of UMNO, will see the end when the opposition comes to power in the next election.It will be replaced by the “Nadi Malaysia” which will report the truth and no fabrication as Utusan Malaysia have been doing from the time of its inception.Rahim Noor does not understand the people’s feelings.He should go back and ask his grandchildren what they think of Bersih 2.

    First let us settle our own country problems before thinking about the Jews or Africans or anyone.
    Malaysians are suffering for no reason and we are a very small country compared to many developed countries.
    We are very rich made very poor by a corrupt government for decades.
    Lets us solve our problems first before talking about the Jews…and Palestinians need mush more help than Jews……right now.

    Bersih 2.0 rally could open the door to Jews and Israel to infiltrate Malaysia? They were here before Bersih: AIG Insurance, Intel, Compaq Dell Computers Goldman Sachs, we wear Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Benetton, GUESS, Hugo Boss, we eat/drink Starbuck McDonald, Nestle, Haagen-Dazs ice cream, , Dunkin’ Donuts with their many local outfits here with our politicians’ cronies as as shareholders or directors. All aspects of Internet has got something to do with Jews from manufacture of Dell computers here use of Microsoft Google, Facebook, Oracle, etc. Even Astro beams to us movies and tv programs from Warner Brothers/Fox, MTV,ABC, Paramount studios, CBS, Bloomberg (with substantial Jews interest)? Aren’t we already well infiltrated ???

    watch out umno, you pile on so much crap on the unsuspecting kampung folks hoping something would stick that even they start smelling the stench. keep it simple, pick one thing and stick the hell to it. exhibit: anwar. first you said he violated a man, then you said he was caught on video w/ a woman. both now seem so fake people start to think maybe anwar is interested in neither :)
    bottom line is the things umno make up are so frivolous people don’t know if they should laugh or cry.

    Najib – full endorsement or lost control of UMNO’s spinmasters? Its obvious the latter! He’s made to look a bungler. His 1 Malaysia policy at home & foreign policy to forged diplomatic ties with Pope, cultivate allies, better relations with US all sabotaged. How could attack on Bersih be linked to Jews, whom their friend Pope Benedict XVI personally exonerates from blame for causing death of Jesus in his latest book, “Jesus of Nazareth, Part II? He compromised with Bersih on “stadium” but others made sure that no compromise of Merdeka Stadium could be reached. He strutted on international stage to call for moderation. At home here his own party people & media organ made sure fingerpointing and scapegoating of Jews ala TDM’s legacy is alive & kicking !

  16. #16 by Jeffrey on Wednesday, 20 July 2011 - 8:30 am

    The sabotage has to be viewed from this context: When TDM left office, he also left a power vacuum in terms of someone strong enough in terms of personal power/charisma to keep the raging ambitions of party warlords at bay. Where even Pak Lah with GE’s endorsement failed, Najib lugging along a huge baggage and a personal style that is tangential rather than frontal in confronting a challenge, faces even greater internal strife/resistance/dissension on the issue of how to lead UMNO to preserve power and to beat Pakatan Rakyat’s 308 resurgence.

    (Contiuing from preceding post)

    Because PM opts to meet PR’s challenge by seeking UMNO’s ‘reinvention’ via baby steps of inclusive 1 Malaysia and financial liberalisation, his party challengers/warlords take the contrarian hardline sectarian stance of opposing reforms and ratchet up UMNO’s traditional ethno/religious centric’s Ketuanan, targeting Jews etc (TDM’s legacy). In this the challengers have broad/ubiquitous support from the whole spectrum, from the retired kingmaker to civil service, NGOs like Perkasa. His own appointed ministers switch loyalties to the side that looks more likely to be victorious in a power struggle.

  19. #19 by Jeffrey on Wednesday, 20 July 2011 - 8:53 am

    As a result, he faces internal sabotage everywhere within his party. [It’s pathetic to see his own office having to weakly say that the govt distances itself from the position of this editor or that NGO without strength to tell them to shut up or face the slammers!] Outside it, PR and its taunts of his policies – reduced to mere empty slogans (1 M’laysia, People First Performance Now) and crisp acronyms (ETP, GTP, NKRAS) – contradicted. Out of the country he faced an aggressive media, questioning Bersih’s handling by the govt and diplomatic faux pas of the Queen that dressed in yellow. No wonder he had a mild brain stroke from stress of how to hold things together. Its a price of trying to hold on to the prize of the PM’s seat.

  20. #20 by dagen on Wednesday, 20 July 2011 - 9:01 am

    Jib actually has been sidelined. He is no longer important to umno. I suspect people in umno are already gearing up to get rid of him. But do I care? Noooooo! What bothers me is umno. I want umno out no matter what. And I dont care who in umno got rid of who.

    To me umno is just a heap of lies and nonsense. Anti-umno used to be labeled as anti-malay. For a while that label was annoying a lot of non-malays. That went on until malays too started to anti-themselves by going anti-umno. So umno got desperate and scared. To win them back umno created the anti-islam label. It would be un-islam to anti-umno! Of course the stupidity of that equation is obvious. It didnt work at all and meanwhile more people (esp malays) turned anti-umno. But that would be anti-agung, came the next, by then, panicky response. Huh? Wot? Anti-agung? Really. This is truly a classic no-brainer and preposterous statement and it does not deserve any response.

    As a matter of fact none of these labels worked. Because anti-umno sentiment and momentum continued to swell. So a really desperate and panicky umno has to invent more new labels. Labels that can work. Anti-umno-ists are are are … terrorists, umno said. Yeah, They are communists too. And and are working for a jewish takeover. Pretty soon – believe you me – umno will go gaga over the thought that anti-umno-ists are actually aliens bent on invading the country and taking control of it.

    I dont know about that umno. Really, I dont know. But I noticed how stupid and idiotic you looked when you uttered those hypotheses. Are you also hearing voices in your head, umno?

    On the personal front, if he were to say that, for the preservation of long term health – stroke could lead to paralysis and coma, a state of living vegetable- he might, on doctor’s advice, consider giving up office now to enjoy a more tranquil & comfortable life of Tunship, he might risk an immediate injury to health by being clobbered by the better half, something that his predecessor did not have to countenance! He has a real problem.

    For Najib, holding on to the PM’s seat has its price. For Rosie, holding on to the seat is a prize.

    Seriously though, I always wondered what happened during the time the UMNO supreme council met to engineer the resignation of Badawi and to coax the return of Mamakthir to UMNO. Some of us suspected that there was a power-sharing arrangement put in place where Najib had to share power with several others, including his current deputy.

  23. #23 by undertaker888 on Wednesday, 20 July 2011 - 9:20 am

    The biggest threats to this country are not the Jews, Christians, communists or the pendatangs, but umno and its ugly hordes.

    These are the real threats- umno friendly crusade Ali. mamak bendahara. Umno corrupted warlords. Forever kowtow king Gerakan, MIC and MCA. they should be charged for abetting and harboring criminals when PR took over. If they did.

    ///Some of us suspected that there was a power-sharing arrangement…/// – Godfather

    Whilst difficult to get evidence of these sorts (unless one’s an insider), the suspicion is (from an objective outside viewpoint) reasonable considering:
    • The office of PM by constitution & convention here is very powerful – that’s why it’s the price- and proof is in the way a strongman like TDM could place on institutions under his thumb. The way this Office has been rendered ineffectual where power cannot be wielded (except with a weak disclaimer of distancing this position or that) infers an “arrangement” especially when entry was brokered by the strongman determined that his legacy is not to be dismantled and the hierarchy of succession be in place leading to his son’s political ascendancy to the apex in due course after selected others have taken their turns…
    • Once arrangement is set (within your expression ”den of thieves”), even thieves have their preverse honour to abide to an extent with the gentleman pact agreed.
    • Besides if the no. 1 does not abide by power arrangement, the coalition that will be formed against him to exit would be so fast that he has no time to blink. Again he’s policy is uphill because opposition to his formula of UMNO’s re-invention & reform will be easy enough to galvanise anytime since vested interests of UMNO members/cronies would defend status quo anytime to threat of change. He dares not therefore upset apple cart.

    Rosie’s gonna want to stay a little bit longer at the PM’s residence. After all, the perks are incredibly generous. However, she’s also getting lazy. She could have taken the new A330 jet to New York to shop, but instead she chose to instruct Jacobs and Co. to send a huge stone for her inspection. Now that she has sent back the stone due to adverse publicity, how long will it be before some UMNO crony gets the instruction to pay for the stone for the First Lady ?

    If there was indeed a power-sharing arrangement, then Najib was worse off with that. AAB depended on Najib’s support, and Najib was PM in fact when AAB was PM in name. AAB could still cling on as a nominal PM if Najib allowed him to. Muhyiddin together with the Calicut Kaka-Mamak might still try to wipe out the team, but would most likely not succeed. Now Najib is the target.

    In Slippery Malaysia,political Spin Doctors like mathadir mohamad, Chandra,Ibrahim Ali ,Rais Yatim ,Nazri morons continously bulls*** …and But these hateful Idiots don’t carry their lying statements to their logical conclusions. Maybe they are incapable of rational and logical thought. Seems so by their statements. Perhaps we should set up some mental rehab for these less-than-civilized and illogical denizens of Malaysia and anywhere else where such tribalism is spouted.…
    Just take a closer Look today Umno morons benefit their Regime of Supremacy like using APCO for cover up the Evil deeds and brutal expression which is the Real manesfestation of Umno Political Abuses of Constitutional laws inorder to survive>>
    Its definitely Skeptical ?? or rather FULL OF POLITICAL LIES
    BTW we all can visualised daily >>>Umno spending millions of Ringgits yearly just funding for all ALL THESE UMNO ECONOMICALstatnant growth social stability PUBLICITY to gain Foreign Investments trust FDI thro APCO ,social media etc
