UMNO/BN leaders and strategists expect UMNO, MCA, Gerakan and MIC to lose more seats in 14GE and this is why they are cranking up their campaign of lies, hate and fear, especially the triple lie-hate-fear tactics that if UMNO loses, the Malays will lose political power
The 14th General Election is getting closer and we can detect certain panic in UMNO/BN leadership quarters.
This is because some UMNO/BN leaders and strategists expect UMNO, MCA, Gerakan and MIC to lose more parliamentary seats in the 14th General Election, which is why they are cranking up their campaign of lies, hatred and fear, especially the triple lie-hate-fear tactics that if UMNO loses, the Malays will lose political power in the country.
This is a downright lie, for whatever happens in the 14th General Election, whether UMNO/BN is defeated by the Pakatan Harapan of PKR, Amanah, Pribumi Bersatu and DAP, the Malays will not lose political power in the country, for the following four reasons: Read the rest of this entry »

HOUSEWIFE Normah Yusof is used to getting messages promoting halal products on her smartphone but a recent graphic disgusted her.
The Bahasa Malaysia graphic read “Boycott Chinese-DAP products” in red capital letters against a black background. A smaller sub-heading read: “Kasi lunyai semua kedai kedai Cina DAP” (Let’s bankrupt Chinese-DAP owned shops).
Political analysts said Normah is a typical target for religious and racial rhetoric, as political parties, such as Umno and PAS, ramp up the psychological war in the run-up to the general election speculated to be this year. Read the rest of this entry »
It must be a new phenomenon in the world of Malaysian journalism – New Straits Times admitting that it has transformed itself from a “news-paper” into a “lies-paper”, without any compunction or sense of journalistic responsibility by claiming that it was only reporting on the “lies” by others in its pages and columns.
It is significant that the New Straits Times response to my speech at the Johor DAP State Leaders Retreat at Kukup, Johor on Saturday about UMNO/BN mainstream media unabashedly transforming themselves from newspapers to “lies-papers” made no attempt to deny that they were publishing “lies” instead of news, except to claim that they were publishing the “lies” spread by others.
Will the New Straits Times similarly oblige DAP and Pakatan Harapan leaders and print whatever “lies” concocted by them about the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, UMNO and Barisan Nasional in the NST pages and columns?
Of course not and this will be the correct decision for journalists must be guided by the canons of journalism, the most fundamental of which is that a newspaper should not degenerate into a “lies-paper”! Read the rest of this entry »
UMNO/BN mainstream media like Utusan Malaysia, New Straits Times, Berita Harian and Star should stop their demeaning role as “lies-papers” and return to their traditional and time-honoured role as newspapers
In the past four months, we see the transformation of UMNO/BN mainstream media like Utusan Malaysia, New Straits Times, Berita Harian and Star from newspapers into “lies-papers” as part of the UMNO/BN campaign to demonise Pakatan Harapan leaders and myself, where I am described as a devil, puaka, even jembalang; that I am anti-Malay, anti-Islam; cause of May 13, 1969 riots; a communist; a stooge of foreign powers; that I dominate Pakatan Harapan and made other leaders like Tun Mahathir, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and Mohamad Sabu as my stooges and puppets – all evils possible under the Malaysian sun!
But we can also notice something most unusual – that the intensification and escalation of the demonisation campaign of Pakatan Harapan leaders and myself, blatantly turning UMNO/BN newspapers into “lies-papers” through lies, fake news and false information, have not given the UMNO/BN leaders solace or relief, for they are beginning to realise that their worst escalation of demonisation campaign against Pakatan Harapan leaders and myself are not getting the traction or credibility to restore UMNO fortunes in the Malay ground.
This is one reason for the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s latest political and strategic decision to make Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as Minister for Special Functions in the Prime Minister’s Department, in addition to his portfolio as Defence Minister – clearly placing Hishammuddin as the No. 2 most powerful man in the Najib administration over and above the Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi.
Clearly, Najib is more fearful that UMNO would be defeated in the 14th General Election than in the 13th General Election in 2013 – and the reason why the demonisation campaign against Pakatan Harapan leaders and myself have reached ludicrous proportion. Read the rest of this entry »
Malaysia heading for major political change in 14GE as never before in nation’s 60-year history is there such widespread and deep-seated restiveness and unhappiness among the people, including the 1.6 million-strong civil service, against the UMNO/BN government
I believe Malaysia is heading for a major political change in the forthcoming 14th General Election as never before in the nation’s 60-year history is there such widespread and deep-seated restiveness and unhappiness among the people, including the 1.6 million-strong civil service, against the UMNO/BN Government.
The time has come for Malaysia to become a normal democratic country, where the voters can peacefully and democratically change the Federal Government in Putrajaya through the ballot box, as in countries recognized as normal democracies, whether the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the European countries like Germany, France, Italy and others, or even Asian countries like Japan, India, South Korea, Philippines and Indonesia.
The voters should not be threatened with chaos, riots or undemocratic and authoritarian measures to frustrate the democratic will of the people expressed in a general election, as the UMNO/BN leaders are trying to do.
In trying to cling on to power, UMNO/BN politicians have resorted to the politics of lies, fear and hate to disseminate the fear among Malay voters that if UMNO is defeated in the 14GE, Malays will lose political power and their rights in the country.
This is of course rubbish and nonsense, for the Pakatan Harapan coalition comprising DAP, PKR, AMANAH and Pribumi Bersatu want to win, not just the 14th GE, but the 15th, 16th GE and others so that it could continue to form the Federal Government – which means that the Pakatan Harapan government must demonstrate that it could deliver results and do better than the UMNO/BN government to protect and promote the rights and interests of all communities in the country, including the Malays.

It is because of counter-productive antics by UMNO leaders like Irmohizam Ibrahim that Hishammuddin has been given super-added powers to create proper conditions for Najib to fight and win power in the 14GE
UMNO Supreme Council member and MP for Kuala Selangor Irmohizam Ibrahim is the latest UMNO leader to make a fool of himself, aggravating the critical political scenario where the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, is fighting for his political life in the forthcoming 14th General Election.
Imohizam accused DAP Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua of lying when Tony said that a private member’s bill from the Opposition had never been given a chance in Parliament.
“This is an obvious falsehood which they try to peddle so that the rakyat will believe their every lie.
“This is because private members’ bills from the opposition have been tabled in parliament before, and it is very strange if they deny this themselves.”
Irmohizam said in 1977, three opposition private members’ bills were put forth, two by me and one by DAP’s Kinta MP Ngan Siong Hing.
Irmohizan even lambasted me for not correcting Tony Pua’s statement and claimed that this was all a part of an Opposition exercise to “trap and deceive” the people with lies and falsehoods.
I checked Tony Pua’s FaceBook posting dated April 6 which said:
“Opposition motions and bills have never made it to the House Floor for debate in the history of Malaysian Parliament (after the Standing Orders were amended in 1978) because BN controls what gets tabled, in collusion with the House Speaker.”
Tony is right. Until the Standing Orders were amended, DAP MPs including myself were submitting motions to seek leave of Parliament to move private member’s bill, which had to be debated (although invariably denied) as they occupy a higher order of priority than government business (such as government bills and motions) in the parliamentary Order of Business.

After alleging that I “remote-control” Pakatan Harapan leaders and MPs, will Ismail Sabri next allege that I “mind control” Mahathir, Anwar, Azizah, Muhyiddin, Azmin and Mat Sabu to be my stooges and puppets?
The UMNO/BN demonization against me has reached fever pitch, when UMNO Minister for Rural and Regional Development, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob could accuse me of “remote control” of Pakatan Harapan Members of Parliament, including Muslim MPs.
Is Ismail next going to accuse me of “mind control” of all Pakatan Harapan leaders, including former Prime Minster, Tun Mahathir Mohamad, former Deputy Prime Minister and PKR Ketua Umum, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Parliametary Opposition Leader and PKR President, Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, former Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of Parti Pribumi Bersatu, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Selangor Mentri Besar and PKR Deputy President, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and President of Parti AMANAH, Mohamad Sabu to be my stooges and puppets?
It is sad to see UMNO/BN leaders, propagandists and cybertoopers continuing to insult and run down their own race by suggesting that top Malay leaders who had been Prime Ministers or Deputy Prime Ministers, Presidents or Deputy Presidents of UMNO, are men of such low moral character and caliber as capable of becoming puppets or stooges after stepping down from their former positions!
Will they next suggest that former Prime Ministers Tunku Abdul Rahman and Tun Hussein Onn as well as former Finance Minister and former Semangat 46 President, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, had also been my stooges and puppets, victims of my “remote control” or “mind control” when we were working on a common cause in the national interests?

UMNO/BN leaders and propagandists should not be so unpatriotic as to undermine sixty years of nation-building efforts with their irresponsible politics of lies, hate and fear
This year the country celebrates the 60th anniversary of the attainment of Merdeka on August 31, 1957, but it is most ironical and shocking that this is also the year where UMNO/BN leaders, propagandists and cybertroopers have taken their politics of lies, hate and fear to an unprecedented level undermining 60 years of nation-building efforts in the country.
The UMNO/BN campaign of demonisation of DAP and DAP leaders as anti-Malay and anti-Islam is a most unpatriotic act and a great national disservice, because they are based on lies and falsehoods and seek to create racial and religious hatred and animosities, which would undermine sixty years of nation-building efforts.
Since its formation 51 years ago, DAP had always been a Malaysian party fighting for the interests of all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region, as it was never a party for any particular race or religion.
In the first general election contested by the DAP in 1969, DAP polled over 286,000 votes, winning 13 Parliamentary and 31 State Assembly seats , while in the eleventh general election contested by the DAP in May 2013, DAP polled about 1.8 million votes winning 38 parliamentary seats and with over 100 State Assembly seats in ten of 13 states in Malaysia. Throughout the eleven general elections contested by the DAP, we had a multi-racial slate whether for parliamentary or state assembly candidates, or for the final list of elected representatives.
Throughout the 51 years, DAP had campaigned for the interests of all Malaysians, as DAP leaders had never preached hatred or animosity against any race or religion.
In fact, Lim Guan Eng went to jail in 1998 and lost his position as Member of Parliament for defending the honour of an underaged Malay girl – a sacrifice which had never been duplicated by another political leader in Malaysia. Read the rest of this entry »
Najib should straighten out UMNO/BN leaders, propagandists and cybertroopers in their demonisation campaign against me – decide whether they are attacking me for wanting to be Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister after the 14th General Election and not vacillate between the two
The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, should straighten out the UMNO/BN leaders, propagandists and cybertroopers who had been launching a demonisation campaign against me in the last four months – and decide once and for all whether they are attacking me for wanting to be Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister after the 14th General Elections and not to vacillate between the two.
When the UMNO/BN demonisation campaign against me was launched some four months ago, I was targetted for wanting to take over the Federal Government in Putrajaya as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Since then, the UMNO leaders, propagandists and cybertroopers have been vacillating – from originally attacking me for wanting to become Prime Minister to wanting to become Deputy Prime Minister, but in the last few days, the UMNO propaganda demonisation campaign have returned to the original theme of targetting me for wanting to be Prime Minister.
Clearly, the UMNO demonisation propagandists are a confused lot as they cannot make up their mind – whether I am plotting to become Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister! Read the rest of this entry »
How many times have Najib met Jho Low, where and when, after the 13th General Election and did the Prime Minister meet Jho Low during his last official visit to China?
I am intrigued by the high-powered and well-orchestrated UMNO/BN demonization campaign against me in the past three months, which appeared to be reaching a climax in the past week.
But I detect something unusual in this UMNO/BN demonization campaign, using a rojak of lies, fake news and false information through UMNO/BN owned and controlled “mainstream media” and the social media to demonise me as a devil, an hantu, puaka or even jembalang; that I am anti-Malay, anti-Islam; that I was the cause of the May 13 racial riots in 1969; that I am a communist; a stooge of Singapore PAP, etc, etc.
Normally, a propaganda campaign starts with light-weight personalities reaching a crescendo with the participation of increasingly heavy-weight figures. But here we see the reverse taking place.
The demonization campaign of the BN Director of Strategic Communications against me started with heavy-artillery salvos from principal UMNO leaders and Ministers but it is in danger of petering out, as seen by deployment of the UMNO Youth deputy chief, Senator Khairul Azman Harun in the UMNO/BN media, New Straits Times and Utusan Malaysia today.
It is quite laughable to see Utusan Malaysia employing a special logo in this demonization campaign against me, with images of myself, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Tun Dr. Mahathir, Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Mohd Sabu and the wordings in a red-boxed caption “ASALKAN BUKAN PAKATAN KIT SIANG”, but somehow, the demonization campaign is unable to enlist personalities of heavier political weight to join in but have to make do with persons of lesser political weight like a UMNO Youth deputy leader.

Why Abdul Rahman Dahlan evades the question why he is not fighting his own battle and instead, run crying to “MO1” for SOS to direct other UMNO Ministers and leaders to come to his rescue?
The self-styled Barisan Nasional Director of Strategic Communications (in actual fact, BN Director of Strategic Lies), Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan should not evade my question to him yesterday why he is not fighting his own battle and instead, run crying to “MO1” for SOS to direct other UMNO Ministers and leaders to come to his rescue?
When I told Abdul Rahman yesterday to stand on his own two feet to fight his own battle, and not to depend on other UMNO leaders to come to his aid, at least five UMNO leaders – four UMNO Ministers and one UMNO Deputy Minister – had already been enlisted into Abdul Rahman’s demonization campaign against me.
They were the Minister for Rural and Regional Development, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the Minister for Education, Datuk Mahdzir Khalid, the Minister for Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism, Datuk Hamzah Zainudin, Minister for Communications and Multimedia, Datuk Seri Mohd Salleh Said Keruak and the Deputy Transport Minister, Datuk Ab Aziz Kaprawi.
By today, this “Support Abdul Rahman’s Demonisation of Lim Kit Siang” has expanded to include the Minister for Housing and Local Government, Datuk Nor Omar and the Wanita UMNO chief, Tan Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, whose statements appeared in the UMNO/BN mainstream media and I expect more UMNO/BN Ministers and leaders to join in the demonization campaign at the behest of “MO1”.

Fight your own battle Abdul Rahman, why you have to run SOS to “MO1” to direct other UMNO Ministers and Deputy Ministers to come to your rescue?
Let me tell the Barisan Nasional Director of Strategic Communications, Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan: Fight your own battle, why have you to run SOS to “MO1” to direct other UMNO Ministers and Deputy Ministers to come to your rescue?
Suddenly, in the last 24 hours, four UMNO Ministers and one UMNO Deputy Ministers have come to the rescue of Abdul Rahman, shoring support for the BN Director of Strategic Communications and opening fire on me as part of the latest UMNO/BN demonization campaign. Read the rest of this entry »
Malaysians must Save Malaysia, which lost it way in failing to be an exemplary economic and political success in the last six decades, to reset nation-building directions and policies
My political life started in Batu Pahat, from my political interests in my school days in Batu Pahat High School.
My class of the Year 1959 in Batu Pahat High School had been quite active and outstanding, as it produced six doctors including a surgeon (Dr. Chong Guan Chock, Dr. Chan Soh Ha, Dr. Hee Tien Lai, Dr. Chia Sze Foong and Dr. Ow Yang Chee Wah), two engineers, two lawyers, two architects, two journalists, two university academicians, an accountant, a quantity surveyor, a town planner, a timber grader, a dozen educationists and teachers as well as others.
It produced three Members of Parliament who became a Minister (Datuk Mustapha Mohamad), a Deputy Speaker (Dr. Hee Tien Lai) and a Parliamentary Opposition leader.
I did not get involved in politics until 51 years ago, and I can still remember seeking the views of classmates at the end of 1965, and they thought that it was quite crazy for me to give up a comfortable and secure job as a journalist for the unknown challenges and terrain of direct political involvement.
The last 51 years had not been a holiday or a “bed of roses”, but a tough political journey and even a “crown of thorns”. Read the rest of this entry »
Today is April 1 or April Fools’ Day. As part of April Fools pranks, some newspapers report fake stories to fool the readers.
This was what I thought when I saw the New Straits Times Page 10 headline and report: “KIT SIANG ‘PRETENDING TO BE ELECTED LEADER’” with a second headline “Only those who are blind and naïve cannot see that the DAP adviser is a dictator, says Hamzah”.
I realized that this was not a April Fools’ Day prank, however, when the other UMNO/BN owned and controlled mainstream media also carried the same story, making the top of Utusan Malayia Page 13 with the headline: “Kit Siang seorang dictator?” and the Berita Harian which devoted the whole of Page 9 to “Kit Siang pemimpin dictator: Hamzah”.
Clearly, this was deadly serious business – part of a massive propaganda psy-war against me! Read the rest of this entry »

Bagi kebanyakan orang Melayu, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad adalah pejuang bangsa. Dalam konteks ini, ia membawa dua maksud, iaitu bangsa sebagai kaum dan bangsa sebagai negara (nation).
Mereka yang menyanjunginya pasti tidak lupa amanat terakhir beliau sebagai Presiden UMNO sewaktu berucap di perhimpunan agung parti ke-54 pada Jun 2003 yang mengingatkan ahli dan pemimpin parti agar tidak mengkhianati bangsa, iaitu kedua-dua maksud bangsa; Melayu dan Malaysia.

Pagi tadi saya hidupkan semula telefon lama yang sudah separuh nyawa. Telefon pintar yang dibeli pada tahun 2014 itu telah saya ganti dengan yang baru. Pastinya lebih canggih dan laju. Namun kerana sedikit rasa sentimental, saya hidupkan kembali setelah hampir tiga bulan ia ‘mati’.
Meski sudah hampir ajal dengan bateri yang hanya bertahan tiga jam, saya kira ia masih boleh diguna untuk tugas-tugas ringan menjadi penggera bangun tidur dan buat memainkan radio. Maka telefon itu akhirnya saya ‘reset’ ke tetapan kilang, dan ia pun kembali ke fitrah asalnya.
Demikian nasib barang-barang elektronik zaman kini. Asal berpenyakit, tekan butang ‘reset’ maka sihatlah ia semula.
Tetapi kalau yang menanggung sakit itu sebuah negara, di celah mana harus ditekan butang ‘reset’nya. Read the rest of this entry »
My second lesson for Abdul Rahman Dahlan is the Confucian saying 名正才能言順 as he is not BN Director of Strategic Communications but BN Director of Strategic Lies
Today, I want to give Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan a second lesson, which is the Confucian saying 名正才能言順 as he is not BN Director of Strategic Communications but BN Director of Strategic Lies.
In a nutshell, the Confucian saying means that “The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name.”
If for political mileage and survival, Abdul Rahman must mastermind a campaign of lies, fake news and false information against the Opposition, don’t couch them as euphemisms when they are downright falsehoods, like claiming that he is Director of Strategic Communication when he is nothing more than Director of Strategic Lies.
Abdul Rahman had been responsible for many “strategic lies” which include: Read the rest of this entry »
Rahman Dahlan reminds me of the Chinese saying 朽木不可雕 as he continues to score his own goal despite my earlier attempt to educate him – but he is unteachable as he is unlearnable!
Abdul Rahman Dahlan reminds me of the Chinese saying 朽木不可雕 as he continues to score his own goal despite my attempt to educate him.
For the past three days, I had tried to educate him what a BN Director of Strategic Communications should do and should not do.
For instance, I told him that he should not be sabotaging any efforts by DAP grassroots members and leaders who allegedly want a change of DAP party leadership and want me to retire from politics, as this is what he did when he publicly championed their cause – but all these allegations are of course a figment of his imagination!
Furthermore, I told Rahman that if he is right that I am such a failure in DAP, he should just quietly pray that I do not retire and continue to be active in DAP affairs to bring ruin and disaster to DAP which best serve the interests of UMNO/BN coalition.
But Rahman does not undertstand such simple logic and reasoning, which any intelligent student would be able to grasp immediately.
Why is Rahman scoring his own goal, in wanting me to retire from DAP when it should be to the UMNO/BN interests that I continue – as according to Rahman , I would be causing the DAP’s downfall as I am such a DAP failure!
In fact, he should be singing praises of me to entice me to continue to be active in DAP and banish all thought of retirement since I am such a failure in DAP and is of such great service to UMNO/BN!
Why is so Rahman so dim and blur about what is strategic for UMNO/BN, and what is not? Read the rest of this entry »
Rahman Dahlan should prove he is a patriot by asking Najib to resign as Prime Minister if Najib is not prepared to clear Malaysia of the curse, infamy and ignominy of being ridiculed world-wide as a global kleptocracy because of 1MDB money-laundering scandal
I am quite bemused by the latest antics of the Barisan Nasional Strategic Communications Director Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan, although I must thank him for finally resolving the question in my mind as to what are the job specifications of a BN Strategic Communications Director – which is clearly to create and amass “strategic lies” about the Opposition and to use them to attack the Opposition parties in the BN-UMNO owned or controlled mainstream mass media and the social media.
This is the reason for the outpouring, close to an avalanche, of demonization of myself in the last three months in the UMNO/Barisan owned or controlled mass media, like the New Straits Times, Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian, Star, or TV3, when for the past half a century of my political activities, I was blacked out in these media, with clear directive given in one mainstream media that my photograph was never to be used.
Now I appear almost daily, if not in New Straits Times, then in Utusan, Berita Harian, Star or TV3, even with pictures – but there were no news, facts or truth, but downright lies, falsehood and fake news.
A recent egregious example of such lies, falsehoods and fake news is the allegation that Tun Mahathir and I had a secret meeting on Dec. 3 last year where a secret deal was struck that Mukhriz Mahathir would be the Prime Minister and I be the Deputy Prime Minister, when there was never such a meeting between Mahathir and myself on Dec. 3, and we had never discussed the subjects of Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister in our discussions so far.
The latest example of such BN “strategic lies” is that I had masterminded electoral fraud in the DAP party elections in 2012, which is a new twist to a tissue of lies which had been concocted and disseminated in BN/UMNO misinformation campaign in the past few years.
Abdul Rahman wants me to retire from politics for failing to topple Barisan Nasional in previous general elections and he said that I should “feel ashamed” towards DAP party members and should make way for other capable leaders.
It is Abdul Rahman who is a man of no shame, who does not realise that he is making a fool of himself, trying to shed “crocodile tears”.
If I am such a political failure in DAP, then Abdul Rahman should be praying fervently that I will remain instead of wanting to see me retire. What hypocrisy, cant and utter bunkum from the BN Strategic Communications Director! Read the rest of this entry »
