Draw the line in the sand clearly and unequivocally that the Pakatan Harapan Government is committed to the objective to wipe out the kleptocracy of the Najib government which was ousted by Malaysians in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018

Let us not be squeamish but draw the line in the sand, clearly and unequivocally, that the Pakatan Harapan government is committed to the objective to wipe out the kleptocracy of the Najib government which was ousted by Malaysians in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018.

MCA has stood out as the only political party so far to openly object to the internal memo by the Solicitor General III Mohamad Hanafiah Zakaria using the term “kleptocracy” to refer to the former administration of Najib Razak, ahead of his corruption trial tomorrow.

I am not aware that any MCA Minister or leader had expressed any objection or outrage when the US Attorney-General Loretta Lynch described the US Department of Justice’s kleptocratic litigation to forfeit 1MDB-linked assets, where the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak was singled out although only referred to as “Malaysian Official 1” (MO1), in July 2016 as the “largest single action ever brought by the department’s Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative” or when in December 2017, after a change of United States administration, the then Attorney-General Jeff Sessions described the 1MDB case as “kleptocracy at its worst” at the global forum on asset recovery in Washington and pledged that the US
Department of Justice was “working to provide justice to the victims” of the 1MDB scandal.

Why is MCA expressing outrage only now? Read the rest of this entry »

Post-14GE Malaysia is facing the most toxic and vicious politicking in the nation’s history

Malaysia in post-14th General Election is facing the most toxic and vicious politicking in the nation’s history.

If Malaysian politics was as toxic and vicious in the past as now, my LLB (Hons) degree would have been raised as an issue – in the way that Pakatan Harapan leaders, whether Minister or Deputy Minister, are now being questioned about their academic qualifications, whether with or without basis.

I must thank my lucky stars that I was not questioned about my LL.B. (Hons) degree and asked to prove my credentials, as it would be quite a bother to do so – as I do not know where is my LL.B. (Hons) certificate.

DAP is always a “friend of Islam” which is moderate and tolerant which will make Malaysia a world top-class nation and not an extremist and intolerant Islam which divide Malaysians and will destroy the Malaysian Dream

Today is the 116th anniversary of the birthday of the first Prime Minister of Malaysia Tunku Abdul Rahman.

Thirty-six years ago, on 8th February 1983, on the occasion of his 80th birthday, Tunku issued the clear public message that plural Malaysia should not be turned into an Islamic State.

Four days later, on 12th February 1983, on the occasion of his 61st birthday, the third Prime Minister, Tun Hussein Onn publicly supported Tunku’s call. Read the rest of this entry »

Does Wee agree that Hadi’s latest utterance that DAP is an “enemy of Islam” is the typical example of the toxic and vicious politics of lies, hate, fear, race and religion which will destroy Malaysia, condemning it to a failed state, if not countered?

I am still waiting for the reply from the MCA President Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong whether he is aware that he would have lost his deposit in Ayer Hitam parliamentary seat in the 14th General Election under the PAS President Hadi Awang’s dictum that Muslims must vote for Muslim candidates.

I am very intrigued by Wee’s defence of the political co-operation between the BN component parties and the PAS.

Does Wee agree that PAS President, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s Facebook posting yesterday, accusing the DAP as an “enemy of Islam” as the reason why PAS ended its alliance with DAP some years back, is the latest typical example of the toxic and vicious politics of lies, hate, fear, race and religion which will destroy Malaysia, condemning it to a failed state, if not countered?

Wee Ka Siong would have lost his deposit in Ayer Hitam under Hadi’s dictum that Muslims must vote for Muslim candidates

MCA President Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong would have lost his deposit in Ayer Hitam parliamentary seat in the 14th General Election under the PAS President Hadi Awang’s dictum that Muslims must vote for Muslim candidates.

Did Wee realise this when yesterday he defended the political co-operation between the BN component parties and the PAS as a common feature of Malaysian politics?

In the Ayer Hitam parliamentary constituency in the 14th General Election, Wee won 17,076 votes, beating the Pakatan Harapan candidate Liew Chin Tong who won 16,773 votes, with a sliver-thin majority of 303 votes. Read the rest of this entry »

What is MCA’s stand that the MIC candidate for Cameron Highlands by-election should be dropped in favour of an UMNO candidate?

The MIC top leaders seemed to have gone into hiding or appointed the UMNO Supreme Council member, Tan Sri Noh Omar, to be the MIC spokesman to respond to questions directed at MIC leaders.

History of sorts had been made as this is the first time that the MIC national leadership has to appoint an UMNO leader to be its spokesman.

My question yesterday was – Who will decide who will contest the Cameron Highlands by-election on behalf of Barisan Nasional? Barisan Nasional, UMNO, MIC or PAS?

But Noh has also demanded that MIC give way to UMNO to field the Barisan Nasional candidate for the Cameron Highlands by-election.

It has been reported that the latest development about the BN candidature for Cameron Highlands by-election had come as a shock to the top MIC leaders as most MIC divisions had sent people to assist in Cameron Highlands. Read the rest of this entry »

Will Wee Ka Siong apologise and demonstrate his contrition for being an “enabler of Najib kleptocracy” in the last three days of this year?

Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong is the Datuk Seri Dr. Zahid Hamidi of MCA.

At least when Zahid claims to represent the Malays, he can do so without batting an eyelid.

Can Wee honestly and honourably claim to represent the Chinese, even in the
Ayer Hitam parliamentary constituency?

Wee is the sole MCA MP in Parliament. But who sent him to Parliament – the Chinese of Malaysia or UMNO’s Malay vote bank?

Apology to Wee Ka Siong – I did not realise his intellectual capabilities and standards are as low as other MCA leaders

I must apologise to the MCA President, Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong as I had not realised that his intellectual capabilities and standards are as low as the other MCA leaders.

When I lamented on Tuesday that the national education curriculum needed an overhaul as it was producing political leaders “who do not understand a simple statement, reading what is not there at all”, I had not included him in the category.

Last Thursday, I had said in Luoyang, Henan that the DAP will never become MCA2 as DAP leaders will not be as spineless as MCA leaders and that DAP will not hesitate leaving the Pakatan Harapan coalition government if the objective of New Malaysia was abandoned.

I observed in Kuala Lumpur on Christmas Day that my Luoyang statement sent the Opposition into sixes and sevens, feeding on their fevered imagination, with a PAS leader trying to provoke the DAP to quit Pakatan Harapan, while one MCA leader urged the DAP to “”grow a backbone” to exit the government and another MCA leader “hit the jackpot” and unconsciously condemned all MCA leaders with the statement that DAP did not qualify to be MCA2.

Even the new MCA leadership post-Najib-as-PM dare not repudiate the 1MDB kleptocratic scandal

It is pathetic witnessing the MCA leadership spewing garbage and falsehoods – all in an abortive effort to hide the fact that even the new MCA leadership post-Najb-as-PM dare not repudiate the infamous 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal which had earned Malaysia the infamy, ignominy and iniquity as a global kleptocracy.

This is what happened yesterday, which was reported by Malaysiakini article entitled “MCA: When will Kit Siang apologise for Dr M ‘most corrupt’ PM claim?” Read the rest of this entry »

Most mortifying mistake of MCA General Assembly was not the resolution that BN dissolves, but its craven and cowardly failure to repudiate Najib for the 1MDB scandal which turned Malaysia into a global kleptocracy

It must be the most humiliating experience of the MCA in its 69-year history – worse than the 2103 General Election when it became a 7/11 politcal party, or the 2018 general election, when it degenerated into a mosquito party winning only one parliamentary seat – and as UMNO President Datuk Zahid Hamidi caustically reminded yesterday, a victory based on support of Malay voters!

In the last two days, whatever is left of MCA pride and dignity were dragged over the coals by UMNO leaders, with Zahid reminding MCA to know its place; UMNO Deputy President Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan urging MCA to leave Barisan Nasional (BN) immediately, remarking that he would be “very thankful” if MCA quits BN as “We cannot afford to have a burdensome friend when we are already having a tough time, politically” while even the UMNO-owned Malay daily Utusan Malaysia also joined in the fray, lashing out at MCA for overstepping its authority, branding the party a “weakling” and insignificant member of the former ruling coalition.

But the most mortifying mistake of last Sunday’s MCA General Assembly was not the resolution that BN dissolves, but its craven and cowardly failure to repudiate former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak for the monstrous 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal which turned Malaysia into a global kleptocracy.

Is the MCA AGM today being held behind closed-doors to protect Wee Ka Siong and the MCA leadership from attacks from MCA delegates for aiding and abetting Najib in the 1MDB scandal as well as for the new extremist and dangerous MCA politics of lies and hate

I had said at the opening on the DAP Ayer Keroh Activities Centre in Malacca yesterday that the new MCA President, Datuk Wee Ka Siong should lead the entire MCA leadership to make two abject apologies to all Malaysians at the MCA General Assembly today – firstly, for aiding and abetting former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak in the 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and making Malaysia a global kleptocracy and secondly, for the new extremist and dangerous MCA politics of lies and hate as exhibited in yesterday’s MCA Youth Assembly.

Would Wee Ka Siong and tnhe MCA leaders have the qualities of wisdom, humility and patriotism to make this double apology at the MCA General Assembly today? Read the rest of this entry »

The new MCA President, Datuk Wee Ka Siong should lead the entire MCA leadership to make two abject apologies to all Malaysians at the MCA General Assembly tomorrow – firstly, for aiding and abetting former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak in making Malaysia a global kleptocracy and secondly, for the extremist and dangerous MCA politics of lies and hate as exhibited in today’s MCA Youth Assembly.

When I was at the City University in Hong Kong last week, a Malaysian told me that for several years before May 9 this year, he was ashamed to identify himself as a Malaysian because of the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal which caused Malaysia to be regarded worldwide as a global kleptocracy.

This was not an isolated case, as the shame and infamy of the 1MDB scandal caused many Malaysians before the 14th General Election to avoid disclosing that they are Malaysians when they were overseas, telling white lies that they were from Singapore, Indonesia or Thailand.

Two “laughing stocks” in Malaysian politics within 48 hours

Malaysian politics achieved two new records of sorts within 48 hours – both highlighted by none other than the new MCA President, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong.

In the first instance, Wee had captured the essence when he said that the UMNO President, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi had been turned into a “laughing stock” after his overture to PAS for a UMNO-PAS merger were ignored. Read the rest of this entry »

Chua Soi Lek – I do not like or hate him. I pity him

Former MCA President Datuk Seri Dr. Chua Soi Lek can deny until the cows come home and allege that I had twisted his words in claiming that he had likened UMNO-MCA relationship to father-and-son relationship but just ask the Malaysian reading public what conclusions they would draw from Chua’s earlier and subsequent statements.

May be Chua had not expected the intensity of the fallout of his “when your father gives you money, will you ask your dad where the money comes from” statement, but it shows that there are things for even an old hand in politics to learn.

Chua is not stupid or dense, although he is prepared to sound stupid or dense if this will help his cause. Read the rest of this entry »

Most important questions for all MCA leaders are not whether MCA leaving BN but whether MCA dare to denounce Najib and 1MDB scandal for the infamy of Malaysia becoming a global kleptocracy and vow support to Pakatan Harapan to transform Malaysia from global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

MCA must thank its former MCA President, Datuk Chua Soi Lek for crystallising some of the issues which MCA must confront if it is to survive after being reduced from a 7/11 into a ½ political party from the 2013 to the 2018 General Election, i.e. a party with seven MPs and 11 State Assemblymen to a party with one MP and two Assemblymen!

At its height, MCA had 30 MPs and four federal Ministers, but in the 2018 general election, it secured only 639,165 votes (or the support at most 200,000 Chinese voters although it boasts of a membership of more than a million members).

UMNO and all present and former BN parties (including UMNO, MCA and MIC) should return RM470 million to public coffers as they had been misappropriated from 1MDB

I was earlier asked at the 47th ABIM annual congress at Universiti Islam Malaysia in Nilai about the comment of the former MCA President, Datuk Dr. Chua Soi Lek about the linkage between the MCA and the world-infamous MDB scandal, which caused Malaysians whether inside or the country to hold their heads in shame for the past few years when thinking of the infamy and ignominy of Malaysia being regarded as a global kleptocracy.

I have since seen news report that listed the RM470 million from former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal banking accounts and which were traceable to 1MDB, which had been diverted to Barisan Nasional parties for the 13th general election, including the following.

Hadi will be a disgrace to political Islam if he cannot substantiate his allegation that DAP discriminates against the East Coast by opposing equal development for Terengganu and Kelantan

I am astonished by the allegation by the PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang that DAP is guilty of “sikap diskriminasi…yang tidak menyokong hasrat kerajaan untuk membawa pembagunan saksama kepada lima negeriu termasuk Terengganu dan Kelantan”.

In a Berita Harian online report which appeared at 4.07 pm yesterday, under the heading “PAS dakwa DAP diskriminasi pembangunan Pantai Timur”, Hadi was quoted as saying that “diskriminasi DAP terhadap hasrat Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk memajukan negeri Pantai Timur begitu ketara”.

The Berita Harian report said:

“Beliau berkata, DAP yang mendominasi kerusi di Pantai Barat dilihat sebagai punca yang boleh menggagalkan usaha Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk berlaku adil dan saksama dalam membawa pembangunan kepada negeri.

“’DAP bersikap tidak jujur terhadap keadilan apabila kepemimpinan parti itu masih berdegil kerana enggan mempedulikan pembangunan di negeri Pantai Timur dan Utara, termasuk Perlis serta Sabah dan Sarawak. Read the rest of this entry »

When will Wee Ka Siong redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament to denounce Najib and the 1MDB scandal and pledge full support to Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

MCA is having national party elections early next month.

But when is the sole MCA MP in the Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong, who is aspiring to be the new MCA President, going to redeem MCA’s honour, dignity and self-respect by taking a firm stand in Parliament to denounce former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak for the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and pledge full support to the Pakatan Harapan government to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a model democracy?

The most outstanding aspect of the last five months of post-14th General Election, whether in Parliament or outside,is the conspiracy of silence involving all UMNO/
Barisan Nasional leaders, especially those who had been Ministers in Najib’s Cabinet like Wee Ka Siong, on the greatest and worst corruption scandal in the country’s history – the monstrous international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal which had given Malaysia the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of a global kleptocracy.

Wee Ka Siong had never spoken about the 1MDB issue, nor had any other UMNO/BN leaders, whether in Parliament or outside, although it is the single biggest global issue confronting Malaysia.

Can Wee explain how many statements he had issued since he had lost his Cabinet position because of the toppling of the Barisan Nasional government in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, and whether there was a single statement on the greatest national shame in historty – the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal?

Why is Wee Ka Siong admitting he is part of the Najib propagandist and cybertrooper outfit to paint the Pakatan Harapan Ministers in the worst possible light?

I wonder why the MCA Deputy President, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong is so impatient as to admit that he is part of the Najib Razak propaganda and cybertrooper outfit to paint Pakatan Harapan Ministers in the worst possible light to bring about the downfall of the Pakatan Harapan Federal Government before the 15th General Election in 2023?

Two days ago on Tuesday, 16th October 2018, I issued a statement advising the Education Minister, Maszlee Malik to stop talking about socks and shoes so as not to fall into the trap of former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and UMNO propagandists and cybertroopers to project the image that he is a very mediocre Minister who has very limited vision and objectives in the transformation of education in the country and instead prove that he is a better Education Minister than Najib himself.

The first to respond to my statement was not Najib or any of his UMNO propagandists, but Wee Ka Siong, when I had not even thought of him or referred to the MCA!

What could make Wee “confessing without being beaten”? Clearly, he is suffering from a “guilty conscience” of being part of Najib propagandist and cybertrooper outfit although it is over five months since the 14th General Election where UMNO/BN was toppled from Putrajaya.

All political parties, individuals and organisations complicit in the 1MDB scandal, like all the BN parties, PAS, Parliament Speaker and media, must repent and redeem themselves for, directly or indirectly, aided and abetted Najib Razak in the monstrous 1MDB scandal

The failure of the UMNO General Assembly on Sunday to adopt a resolution to condemn and sack Datuk Seri Najib Razak from UMNO for the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal is proof that UMNO and UMNO leaders continue to be complicit in the monstrous 1MDB scandal.

The 1MDB scandal will continue to be an albatross round the neck of UMNO and UMNO leaders.

Malaysians must thank Wanita Umno delegate from Batu Pahat, Masurana Samian, who wore a “MACC lock-up” orange-coloured T-shirt to the UMNO General Assembly on Sunday, as henceforth, UMNO and UMNO leaders are literally garbed in the orange-coloured MACC uniform!

But it is not only UMNO and UMNO leaders who must repent and make amends, all political parties, individuals and organisations complicit in the 1MDB scandal, like all the Barisan Nasional parties including MCA, Gerakan, MIC, the Sabah and Sarawak BN parties, as well as PAS, the Parliament Speaker and the printed and electronic media, who had been complicit in the 1MDB scandal, must repent and redeem themselves for directly or indirectly aiding and abetting Najib Razak in the monstrous 1MDB scandal.
