78-Day Countdown to 13GE – UMNO/BN will dish out “Lies, lies and more lies” with approach of 13GE but Malaysians must not be distracted from the Big Issues of National Reform and Renewal in 13GE

There is no sense of remorse or contrition by UMNO/BN leaders, propagandists and their mainstream mass media (MSM) at the deluge of lies, falsehoods and invectives directed at Pakatan Rakyat parties and leaders, without regard for the most basic human decencies to respect family sufferings and sorrows because of private pain and hardships as in the case of Sarawak DAP Chairman and MP for Sibu Wong Ho Leng, his wife Irene Chang and their five children.

It is really despicable and contemptible that although Irene never gave any interview or complained against the party or party leader, a totally false and fictitious account had been published quoting her as castigating the party and party leaders as “heartless” over Ho Leng’s “brain tumour” treatment, even claiming that Ho Leng collected RM10 million for election expenses but only RM4 million were spent while RM6 million were hijacked by DAP Sarawak and DAP Hq.

As Ho Leng has said about the totally false and fictitious account about Irene complaint, “there is not even one sentence in there which is true”, the RM10 million allegation like the equally preposterous claim that the DAP spent RM1.3 million to produce the recent Gangnam video, are complete fabrications.

UMNO/BN will dish out “Lies, lies and more lies” with approach of 13GE but Malaysians, including DAP and Pakatan Rakyat leaders, members and supporters, must not be distracted from the Big Issues of National Reform and Renewal in the 13th general elections, now that the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak has come up against the wall against any indefinite postponement of the polls.

The Big Issues of National Reform and Renewal include the agenda to stamp out corruption and end the debilitating illicit outflow of capital; make Malaysia safe from crime and free from the fear of crime for its citizens, tourists and investors; restore the efficiency, independence and professionalism of key national institutions; revamp the education system to make Malaysia competitive, prosperous and progressive; and foster greater unity among Malaysians regardless of race, religion or region to make Malaysia an international model of a multi-racial and multi-religious society which is also a successful democracy.

The unscrupulous, dishonest and dastardly resort to “Lies, Lies and More Lies” in the UMNO/BN election campaign strategy is a reflection of the growing desperation felt by UMNO/BN leaders that the 13GE may see them ejected from Federal power in Putrajaya – the first time in 55 years.

This is also why UMNO/BN leaders and propagandists are also escalating the politics of hatred and conflict, inciting racial and religious polarisation although this is the very antithesis to Najib’s signature 1Malaysia policy for Malaysians to regard themselves as Malaysian first and their race, religion, socio-economic status and region second.

In fact, Malaysians today have never felt less “1Malaysia” in Najib’s four-year premiership since April 2009.

When former Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir, could question the citizenship qualifications of one million non-Malays who were made citizens by Bapa Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman as part of the Merdeka Agreement and “social contract” before Merdeka in 1957, it is no less than a total repudiation of Najib’s 1Malaysia Policy.

UMNO/BN wants Malaysians to quarrel about the past – going back to over half a century.

In contrast, Pakatan Rakyat wants Malaysians to unite to build a united, tolerant, prosperous and progressive future for all our children and children’s children, so that Malaysians can stand tall in the international community of nations.

Malaysians should move forward into the future with new hopes and dreams and not allow themselves to be tied down by the past fetters of the politics of lies and falsehoods as well as the politics of racial distrust and religious animosities.

    With the recent revelations by the ex-igp, the carpetman and now by the RCI witnesses, all of umno’s thunderous lies (well that was what those lies were designed to sound like) sound more like annoying cracking noises of firecrackers.

    ///without regard for the most basic human decencies to respect family sufferings and sorrows…///

    The author knows no shame after such a flagrant violation of journalism ethics.

    What makes me uncomfortable is that when you look at Mahathir’s replies, Perkasa replies, Listen! Listen! Listen!, Rosmah and Najib’s replies to Deepak, even Muhiyiddin actions and replies – they LOOK amateurish – the same things they have done traditionally taken up to a notch and under the glare of new media..

    If you accept their strategy is merely to go for the hardcore ultra-Malays support, it seems foolish because the numbers can’t be that many…To throw away the middle-ground almost entirely, to offend almost every single other group – Sabahan, Sarawakians, Indians, Christians, orang Asli – its just highly risky..

    My fear is they may have a plan – a foolish lunatic one – one that result is simply unacceptable to even the calmest mind – what then?

    ///He (ex-general) says while RM7 billion is spent on defence annually, our military does not have equipment that meet the standards.///–Malaysiakini

    Equipment purchase facilitates transfer of funds, not the defence of the country. That’s RM 7 billion is needed annually, and people got murdered because of that.

    ///The Chinese community and young voters make up most of the fence sitters who will determine the winner of Election 2013, with a University of Malaya Centre of Democracy and Election (UMCEDEL) survey showing also that Barisan Nasional (BN) is ahead by five percentage points in its bid to retain power.A total of 1,409///–MalaysianInsider

    They have long decided but just would not tell! The undecided are for Pakatan Rakyat, and why should they tell?

    With elections’ battle drawing nigh, wonder if PR is ready to penetrate into BN strongholds – Felda and rural areas.

    DAP spent RM1.3million on to produce Gangnam video.
    That would be the normal cost for BN’s standard.
    Like setting up a Facebook account by Ministry of Tourism.

    Things are already lunatic

    Here is the message to all Malays, with all my sincere heart. After what Mahathir said about Sabah and Chinese-Indian citizenship, the world today consider him and his kind simply HATERS.

    Mahathir and his kind broke the law. If they can do it to Sabahan, Chinese, Indians, Christians, – eventually they will do it to Malays too. Things must change TODAY, not tmrw, not a few more years from now, today. If thinks don’t change now, things will go down the hill for certain for EVERYONE. We who tried, won’t wait, we will simply leave and Mahathir and his kind will turn to YOU.. – that is what happens to HATERS – always in each and every instance in history and even today in Gaddafi, Mubarak, Mugabe, Assad – they turn on their own..When that happens – if you say tmrw or in a a few years, don’t blame anyone if they also say tmrw and a few years or even if they don’t care at all..

    Bigjoe, there are already doing this to the Malays what they had done to the Sabahans. How many of those real Malays from the times of the Tunku do you see today. The mamaks, pakistanis, bangladeshis, etc. etc. etc.? The systematic marginalisation of the minorities were done with. What remains is the systematic changes to the DNA of the core race that need to be completed. The bringing in of the millions of mostly muslim illegals is only part of the preconceived agenda. They could have been more selective, but why? Only the top 20% Umnoputra holds the wealth of this nation under the guise of the NEP. Food for thought? You bet it is!

    The scent of money and titles has numbed all their senses. They have been trained to be like vicious dogs. No mercy, no apology, no compassion, no brain. That’s their traits.

    The day will come. The day will come when BN is booted out. Just be patient and chip the foundation of the stumbling rock that is our nation’s bad luck. ABU ABU.

    Federal Constitution amended more than 600x in 50 years. The indian muslims cannot call themselves Malay with the exception of the one, of course. Obama is an American!
