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 »

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 »

A “coup d’etat” has taken place in UMNO/BN government – not to topple the PM but to protect the PM

A “coup d’etat” has taken place in the UMNO/BN government – not to topple but to protect the Prime Minister.

There can be no administrative or ministerial justification for the additional appointment of Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as Minister with Special Functions in the Prime Minister’s Department while retaining his portfolio as Defence Minister, except for the political and “strategic” one of protecting Datuk Seri Najib Razak from being ousted as the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia – whether externally as a result of defeat in the forthcoming 14th general election or from being toppled internally as Prime Minister before the polls.

Najib has already set record as the Prime Minister with the most number of Ministers in the Prime Minister’s Department, and Hishammuddin will be the tenth Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.

But Hishammuddin will be completely different from the other nine Ministers, as he will be the most powerful Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Irmohizam said:

“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?

HOW AN ILL-FATED STOCK LISTING COULD SWAY MALAYSIA’S ELECTION

BY PHAR KIM BENG
South China Morning Post
9 APR 2017

The controversial listing of the Federal Land Development Authority’s commercial arm has left many of the Malaysian government’s key supporters – the rural poor – rethinking their allegiances

Viewed from afar, Malaysia’s ruling party, the United Malays National Organisation (Umno), might seem nigh-on unchallengeable in the general election expected as early as this year. After all, it has been in power since the country’s first such election in 1955 – two years before the country’s independence from Britain.

Yet, while it is undeniably strong, its armour is not without chinks. The party cannot afford to lose the support of Malaysia’s rural constituencies – a dependency that has entwined its fate with that of the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) for the past 60 years and may now represent just such a weak spot.

Felda was created by Umno a year after its maiden election win to handle the resettlement of rural poor into newly developed areas and smallhold farms. It went on to alter the development of Malaysia beyond recognition as large swathes of unused land became well-irrigated plantation schemes that transformed both agricultural exports and the incomes of its rural communities.

Settlers on Felda land have remained fiercely loyal to Umno, which forms the backbone of the ruling coalition Barisan Nasional (National Front), ever since and have played no small part in defending Umno’s grip on power. Of the party’s 86 parliamentary seats, 54 are from constituencies on Felda-developed land.

But there are signs Umno’s grip may now be loosening with opinion among its erstwhile diehard support base now deeply divided by the government’s handling of the listing of Felda’s commercial arm – Felda Global Ventures (FGV) – on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange in May 2012.

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 »

Kenapa Kit Siang bangkit mencelah pembentangan usul Haji Hadi

oleh Izmil Amri
Roketkini
Pada 6 April 2017

Bertubi-tubi orang memarahi Ahli Parlimen Gelang Patah, Lim Kit Siang yang dilihat cuba menghalang Ahli Parlimen Marang, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang daripada membentangkan usul persendiriannya yang penuh kontroversi di Parlimen hari ini.

Hadi sudah beberapa kali sebelum ini diberi ruang oleh pihak kerajaan untuk membentangkan usul yang lebih dikenali sebagai RUU355 itu, namun beberapa kali itu juga memohon untuk menangguhkan pembentangannya.

Usul Hadi itu mendapat keistimewaan hari ini apabila pihak kerajaan semalam menangguhkan lima rang undang-undang yang sebelum ini disenaraikan mendahului usul Hadi, setelah Dewan Rakyat terus bersidang sehingga hampir subuh.

Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin menjelaskan bahawa kerajaan telah meminta supaya usul Hadi diberikan keutamaan.

Proses tersebut kecoh seketika, apabila beberapa wakil rakyat pembangkang bangkit mempersoalkan kenapa hal tersebut berlaku; sedangkan baru sahaja minggu lalu Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak mengumumkan bahawa kerajaan tidak akan mengambil alih usul Hadi, dengan alasan ia adalah konsensus Barisan Nasional.

I will accept a public debate with the Prime Minister or any senior UMNO leader on “Who is a Malaysian Patriot” or “What are the challenges of a Malaysian Patriot in 2017”

I feel sad that my appeal yesterday to UMNO leaders and Utusan Malaysia to stop insulting or running down their own Malay race by suggesting that top Malay leaders who had been Presidents or Deputy Presidents of UMNO, or Prime Ministers, Deputy Prime Ministers or Ministers, are men and women of such low character and morals that they are susceptible to become stooges or puppets after stepping down from their high office, had not been heeded!

I am not a Malay, but I think this is a calumny of the worst kind about the Malay race, and I want to protest against it in the strongest possible terms.

It is shocking and ironic that such calumny of the Malay race is coming from the incumbent Malay leadership in government and Utusan Malaysia, which are facing a life-and-death struggle to retain popular Malay support!

The founding President of UMNO, Datuk Onn Jaafar, was once denounced as a traitor to the Malay race. So was once Tunku Abdul Rahman, even Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah when he formed and headed Semangat 46, and now Tun Mahathir and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

It is time that Malaysian politics, on the 60th anniversary of the country achieving Merdeka on August 31, 1957, become less infantile and racist and more mature and Malaysian.

Can we expect the present UMNO/BN leadership in Putrajaya grow with the times to lead Malaysia towards this era of more mature and Malaysian politics? 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 »

Imagine the protest and demos all over the country if a DAP MP had proposed a Bill which is alleged to show contempt for the Malay Rulers!

Mohamed Tawfik Ismail, the son of the second Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman, yesterday filed a lawsuit asking the courts to declare that PAS President, Datuk Seri Hadi Awang’s private member’s bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act (Act 355) is unconstitutional, and seeking an order from the High Court in Kuala Lumpur to prohibit the Dewan Rakyat from allowing Hadi’s motion to be tabled and debated in Parliament.

The grounds advanced by Mohamed Tawfik was that Hadi’s private member’s bill was unconstitutional, flouts Parliamentary procedures and in contempt of the Rulers’ Conference as prior consent was not obtained.

Imagine what would have happened if there is a court application against the DAP on the ground that a DAP MP had submitted a private member’s bill which was in contempt of the Rulers’ Conference as prior consent was not obtained.

The Office of the UMNO Directorate of Strategic Communications/Lies would have swung into action and hordes of protestors and demonstrators would have demonstrated outside DAP offices in the country for being anti-Malay Rulers, making all sorts of demands, while on the cyberspace, the UMNO cybertroopers would be working overtime to demonise DAP leaders as having committed treason in showing disrespect and contempt for the Malay Rulers.

My third lesson for Abdul Rahman Dahlan – 邪不胜正 (Evil cannot triumph over good)

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 »

Any passage of Hadi’s private member’s bill motion in Parliament next Thursday will make a total mockery of BN Supreme Council decision that BN government will not take over Hadi’s private member’s bill to amend Act 355

After the announcement of the Barisan Nasional Supreme Council decision on Wednesday night by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak that the federal government will not takeover PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang’s private member’s bill to amend Act 355, attention has shifted to whether Hadi will be able to move his private member’s bill motion next Thursday (last day of the present Parliamentary meeting) and whether there would be a debate and a vote, and if so, what the voting outcome would be like.

Any passage of Hadi’s private member’s bill motion in Parliament next Thursday will make a total mockery of the Barisan Nasional Supreme Council decision that the BN government will not take over Hadi’s private member’s bill. Read the rest of this entry »

Two important outcomes of BN Supreme Council meeting – averting final funeral rites for a consensus-based BN and clear affirmation that to criticize or even oppose Hadi’s private member’s bill is not being anti-Islam

Two days ago, I asked in very blunt language whether the Barisan Nasional founded by Tun Razak in 1973 will be finally buried with the consensus-based political coalition of 13 political parties replaced by a political coalition which does not operate on consensus principle but solely on the political hegemony of UMNO.

The Barisan Nasional Supreme Council meeting last night prevented the necessity to perform the final funeral rites for a consensus-based Barisan Nasional founded by Tun Razak 44 years ago, although there are adequate examples and developments that consensus-based Barisan Nasional coalition is quite sick and in quite a terminal stage.

Such examples and developments occurred in the last two Parliamentary meetings in May and October/November last year where UMNO Ministers unilaterally gave priority to PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang’s private member’s bill motion without consultation, consent and consensus from the other 12 Barisan Nasional parties and the unilateral announcements by both the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi that the Barisan Nasional government will take over Hadi’s bill and will table Hadi’s bill in the present meeting of Parliament.

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 »

Are we in the last ten days or fortnight of the 44-year-old Barisan Nasional founded by Tun Razak in 1973 as a consensus-based political coalition if UMNO imposes hegemony by unilaterally taking over Hadi’s private member’s bill on RUU 355, whether on April 6 to 10?

Are we in the last ten days or fortnight of the 44-year-old Barisan Nasional founded by Tun Razak in 1973 as a consensus-based political coalition if UMNO imposes hegemony by unilaterally taking over PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang’s private member’s bill on RUU 355, whether on April 6 (the last day of the present Parliamentary meeting) or on April 10 (extension of present Parliament)?

Will Barisan Nasional totally change its character in the next 10 to 14 days from a political coalition where there must be the 3Cs, consultation, consensus and consent from and with everyone of the 13 Barisan Nasional component parties before a policy, measure or decision can become Barisan Nasional government policy, measure or decision into one where the Barisan Nasional is only a coalition in name but accepts UMNO hegemony, where what UMNO leaders want and desire become the law in Barisan Nasional?
