The “highest levels” of the former Malaysian Government who believed from “very early on that the MH 370 tragedy was a murder-suicide plot” must now speak up

The “highest levels” of the former Malaysian Government who believed from “very early on that the MH 370 tragedy was a murder-suicide plot must now speak up.

Both Malaysians and Australians must be shocked by the Australian Skynews announcement that former Australian Prime minister Tony Abbott has revealed Malaysian authorities believed the disappearance of flight MH370 was a case of pilot murder-suicide, as 50 Malaysians and six Australians, apart from 153 Chinese, seven Indonesians, four French, three Americans, two New Zealanders, two Canadians, two Iranians, two Ukrainians as well as from other nationalities were among the 239 persons who died in the air tragedy.

Abbott made the explosive comments in part one of Sky News documentary ‘MH370: The Untold Story’, which would be aired tonight.

“My understanding – my very clear understanding – from the very top levels of the Malaysian government is that from very, very early on here, they thought it was a murder-suicide by the pilot,” said Abbott who was Australian premier when the plane disappeared on March 8, 2014.

“I’m not going to say who said what to whom. But let me reiterate – I want to be absolutely crystal clear – it was understood at the highest levels that this was almost certainly murder-suicide by the pilot.

“A mass murder-suicide by the pilot,” said Abbott in a stunning claim.

The world would be waiting for the airing of the two-part investigation tonight and tomorrow night by Skynews as it reveals ground-breaking new details about the MH370 disappearance, which vanished from the radar screen while on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, and which had continued to baffle aviation experts, family members, friends and people from all over the world.

It would appear an international commission of inquiry into the MH 370 disappearance would be necessary as a result of Abbot’s revelations.

Why are PAS leaders panicking over Pakatan Harapan fulfilling its general election promises on power transition on Friday?

Three days ago, I asked: “Will PAS leaders and Opposition opportunists continue to stir the pot, hoping to perpetuate the perception that the Pakatan Harapan federal government is on its last legs?”

I had said that the “political situation should have stabilised after Anwar met Mahathir on Thursday and said that the Pakatan Harapan agreement of January 7, 2018 on the appointment of Mahathir as the seventh Prime Minister and the transition of power from Mahathir as the seventh Prime Minister to Anwar as the eighth Prime Minister would be finalised at the Pakatan Harapan presidential council on Feb. 21” but that “the prophets of doom and naysayers believed otherwise, claiming that a lot of things could happen before the PH presidential council meeting on Feb. 21”.

I have been proven right.

Parliament next month should not only be the most important in the 22-month Pakatan Harapan government, but also in the nation’s history, by implementing the most number of PH promises of a New Malaysia in the 14GE

The announcement by the PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man that PAS will move a “vote of confidence” motion in the Dewan Rakyat to support Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s premiership until the 15th General Election found unusual support from MCA and precipitated the country into a week of frenzy awash with plots, conspiracy theories and fake news of Statutory Declaratins by 138 MPs to torpedo the Pakantan Harapan Government in Putrajaya.

The climax of this political chicanery and psy-war to torpedo the Pakatan Harapan government was the explosive infographic by the MCA-owned newspaper trumpeting that 138 Members of Parliament had purportedly signed Statutory Declaration “for PM to stay the full term”, and a breakdown which political party the 138 MPs came from.

It was the most recent example of the unholy alliance between PAS and MCA to propagate conflicting lies to create an unprecedented scenario in Malaysia – where every ethnic community or religion was made to fear that it faced an existential threat from the other ethnic group or religion and where the DAP was painted as a political party performing the impossible tasks of being the greatest existential threat to Malay rights, position and future as well as that of Islam on the one hand while being the greatest existential threat to the rights, position and future of the Chinese and non-Malays in the country on the other.

All these foam and fluff should have been exposed by the statement by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim last Thursday after his meeting with the Prime Minister and Mahathir’s statement in Langkawi the next day that Anwar had provided an accurate account of what transpired in their meeting.

Hadi thinks Malaysians are fools to believe the latest PAS fairy tale that its confidence motion is to save the nation, when in fact it is to torpedo the Pakatan Harapan government and advance Hadi’s choice for Malaysians to be goat-herders or pig-herders

PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang thinks Malaysians are fools to believe the latest PAS fairy tale that its confidence motion in Parliament next month is to save the nation when in fact it is to torpedo the Pakatan Harapan government and advance Hadi’s choice for Malaysians choose to be goat-herders or pig-herders.

It is also proof that the present PAS leadership is never committed to the principles of parliamentary democracy and will be the first to dispense with democratic principles and practices if given access to power, just as the present PAS leadership has exhibited its disloyal attitude to the Constitution and the Rukunegara after the 14th General Election, supporting corruption and kleptocracy as well as approving lies and falsehoods, sanitised as being “shariah-compliant”.

Hadi claims that PAS MPs are not “cowards” and even concocts the lie that DAP MPs are not united on the issue.

This is the latest example of “shariah-compliant” lie sanctioned by the present PAS leadership.

What is the political future of Malaysians for the present PAS leadership – a kleptocratic Malaysia, teeming with “shariah-compliant” sin and lies, for the people to choose to be goat-herders or pig-herders? Read the rest of this entry »

Parliament should honour Kevin Morais who gave his life in the battle against corruption and the heroes and heroines who saved Malaysia from the 1MDB kleptocracy

A little-noticed event in the anti-corruption battle which should have deserved greater and deeper public attention took place on Tuesday – the posthumous award to the late senior deputy public prosecutor, Kevin Morais.

In honouring Kevin Morais with the Perdana International Anti-Corruption Champion 2020 Award at a ceremony which launched the Perdana International Anti-Corruption Champion Foundation (PIACCF), the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad said the award symbolised PIACCF’s appreciation to all the brave officers who suffered in upholding their integrity.

In his speech, Dr Mahathir also acknowledged the contributions of former Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, former Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz and former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull in exposing the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.

He said it was a significant case, as it became the turning point of Malaysia’s political direction and sparked an awakening among Malaysians.

“Their collective courage and determination brought a kleptocratic regime to its feet, in an unprecedented show of people’s power,” he added.

Parliament, which is reconvening next month, should honour Kevin Morais who gave his life in the battle against corruption and the heroes and heroines who saved Malaysia from the 1MDB kleptocracy. Read the rest of this entry »

A question which is also an indictment

There are those who think that it is naïve for me to pose the question: Will the Opposition play its role as an honest, constructive and loyal Opposition to the Constitution and Rukunegara instead of trying its utmost to polarise and divide Malaysians through the politics of race, religion, fake news and hate speech?

This is a question which is also an indictment.

I had not expected any answer from the Opposition and there was none. In the new Internet era of 24-hour news cycle, the two-day total Opposition silence to my question on Tuesday is very eloquent and conclusive proof that the Opposition will continue to be dishonest, destructive and disloyal to the Constitution and Rukunegara so that it could divide Malaysians through the politics of race, religion, fake news and hate speech.

I have always believed that in any democracy, the Opposition has an important role to play to provide the necessary check and balance to prevent abuse of power and other deviations, but it must be an honest, constructive and loyal Opposition – not to the government of the day, but to the country and the basic nation-building documents like the Constitution and the Rukunegara.

I have never believed that to be an effective Opposition, one must be dishonest, destructive and disloyal to the Constitution and Rukunegara which best describe the present Opposition. Read the rest of this entry »

Will the Opposition play its role as an honest, constructive and loyal Opposition in accordance with the Constitution and Rukunegara instead of trying its utmost to polarise and divide Malaysians through the politics of race, religion, fake news and hate speech?

At last an Opposition leader has spoken the truth when the UMNO deputy president Mohamad Hasan lamented about the level of politicking in the country, stressing that it is Malaysia that required a vote of confidence.

Referring to the PAS move for a vote of confidence for Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in the Dewan Rakyat next month, Mohamad Hassan said:

“Recently, there has been a lot of politicking in Malaysia, so much so that we forget the country is facing several critical challenges.

“Malaysia is the one that needs the confidence vote. If Malaysia fails to resolve the crisis of confidence which it is facing, Malaysia will continue to remain as a mediocre country.”

It is because of such irresponsible and unhealthy level of politicking by a dishonest, destructive and disloyal Opposition to the Constitution and Rukunegara, that twenty months after the historic, peaceful and democratic change of government in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 – one of the few victories of democracy in the world in the past decade – that Malaysia has become a very polarised and divided nation where the politics of race, religion, fake news and hate speech sow and incite suspicion, doubt, distrust and hatred among the different communities, and generate the baseless fear that each community is facing an existential threat with regard to its ethnicity, rights, religion and culture.

Fully support call on the Attorney-General to review the case of disabled person Mohamad Sani Isa who is jailed today for attempting suicide as Parliament is in the process of decriminalising suicide

I fully support the call on the Attorney-General Tan Sri Tommy Thomas to review the case of disabled person Mohamad Sani who is jailed today for attempting suicide as Parliament is in the process of decriminalising suicide.

This will be in keeping with the Pakatan Harapan’s promise of a New Malaysia – a more humane and caring nation that looks after the welfare of the more unfortunate sections of society.

Today, there is the good news that Malaysia has achieved its best score and rank to date on the Democracy Index, placing 43rd from a total of 167 countries.

The Democracy Index 2019 report, released by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), gave Malaysia a score of 7.16 from a maximum score of 10.

Malaysia had scored between 5.98 and 6.88 since the index began in 2006. It was ranked 52nd last year with a score of 6.88.

Malaysia’s score of the Democracy Index 2019 improved and the country rose nine places in the global ranking from No. 52 last year to No. 43 out of 167 countries.

One important reason why Malaysia had been falling down the slippery slope of a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state is because the nation’s leaders had disregarded the compass of nation-building which our forefathers had put together, in particular the Malaysian Constitution and the Rukunegara.

UiTM should dismiss Musa Hassan as lecturer at its Centre of Media and Information Warfare Studies (CMIWS) as the former IGP has become a “poster boy” not only for media illiteracy but also for lies, fake news and hate speech

UiTM should dismiss former Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan as lecturer at its Centre of Media and Information Warfare Studies (CMIWS) if it aspires to be a centre of excellence for its information warfare centre, as the former IGP has become a “poster boy” not only for media illiteracy but also for lies, fake news and hate speech.

Last October, Musa made himself the joke in the cyber world when he demonstrated his media illiteracy by showing that he did not know that The Onion website was a satirical news website when he defended his comment against an old Onion article on terrorist Osama Bin Laden and the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), entitled “CIA Issues Posthumous Apology After New Evidence Clears Osama Bin Laden Of Involvement In 9/11 Attacks”.

Recently, Musa again made a fool of himself when he tried to poison the minds of the new generation of Malaysians alleging that DAP has an agenda to rewrite history by reviving the communist ideology.

In doing do, Musa denigrated the Special Branch of the Malaysian Police as an useless and incompetent outfit, when in fact the Special Branch is one of the best of its kind in the world. Read the rest of this entry »

DAP demonisers should make up their mind – Is DAP communist, want to revive communism, Christian committed to set up a Christian state in Malaysia, Chinese chauvinist, anti-Islam, anti-Malay, anti-Indian, anti-Chinese, puppet-master of Mahathir, stooge of Mahathir – as it is impossible for DAP to play so many conflicting and contradictory roles

DAP demonisers should make up their mind – is DAP communist, want to revive communism, Christian committed to set up a Christian State in Malaysia, Chinese chauvinist, anti-Malay, anti-Indian, anti-Chinese, puppet-master of Mahathir, stooge of Mahathir – as it is impossible for DAP to play so many conflicting and contradictory roles.

In actual fact, the DAP is none of these, as it is a patriotic Malaysian political party upholding the Malaysian Constitution and the Rukunegara principles and fully committed to improving the socio-economic welfare of all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region and wants to see Malaysia succeed as a democratic, just, progressive and prosperous nation which can take its rightful place in the international community.

The latest demonization of DAP came from the former inspector-general of police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan who in a lecture at Universiti Teknologi Mara tried to poison the minds of the new generation of Malaysians by alleging that DAP of an agenda to rewrite history by reviving the communist ideology.

DAP is a political party with a 54-year history, and although DAP leaders had previously been detained under the Internal Security Act, neither the DAP nor any of the DAP leaders had ever been accused of being a communist or support of communist causes. Read the rest of this entry »
