Malaysia has descended into a hypo-kakistocracy (hypocrisy-kakistocracy) with the statement by Muhyiddin that he had advised UMNO Ministers not to quit

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Malaysia has descended into a hypo-kakistocracy (hypocrisy-kakistocracy) with the statement by the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, that he had advised UMNO Ministers not to quit.

Muhyiddin said he had advised the UMNO Ministers to remain in the Cabinet to take into account the people’s interest and the country.

Muhyiddin is being quite hypocritical, when what he really meant was that the UMNO Ministers should remain to take into account Muhyiddin’s interest and survival and not that of the country. Read the rest of this entry »

Sin Chew interview only exposed Annuar Musa as a “Little Trump” purveying disinformation and fake news

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

The Sin Chew interview of the sacked Barisan Nasional secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa exposed him as a “Little Trump” purveying disinformation and fake news, even when he had been elevated to Ministerial rank

Annuar gave three reasons why UMNO should not ally with DAP.

Annuar is the most hard-core top UMNO leader who had been going around accusing the DAP of being anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty – all despicable lies. Read the rest of this entry »

Restore the mandate to Pakatan Harapan and with Anwar Ibrahim as the ninth Prime Minister, Malaysia can begin to fulfil her aspiration to be a united, harmonious, multi-racial world-class great nation and “a beacon of light in a disturbed and distracted world”

UMNO, Bersatu and PAS have failed to form a stable government as the Malay Unity rhetoric has proved to be a false promise for Malaysia.

If I had made this statement, it would be taken as proof of the allegation that I am anti-Malay and anti-Islam, but this was stated by Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, the President of Warisan and former Sabah Chief Minister, at the recent Regional Outlook Forum 2021, hosted by the ISEAS–Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore last Thursday.

Shafie said Malaysian politics needs a reset in 2021 and beyond as the Malay unity rhetoric is proven to be a false promise. Read the rest of this entry »

Malaysia would only be out of the woods of the Covid-19 pandemic in July 2022 yet UMNO wants to have 15GE in the first quarter of 2021

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

If the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Khairy Jamaluddin is right that Malaysia is set to achieve herd immunity in 18 months against Covid-19 from February after the arrival of the first batch of the initial Covid-19 vaccine supply, we will only be out of the woods of the Covid-19 pandemic in July 2022.

Yet UMNO wants to have the 15th General Election by the end of the first quarter of 2021!

Will there be an UMNO leader who will rise to restore UMNO to its founding decades when UMNO Presidents were known for their unquestioned integrity and honesty and their acceptance that Malaysia is a plural society?

Are the kleptocratic UMNO leaders the worst enemies of the Malays and the nation in the challenges for Malays and Malaysia to compete with the rest of the world?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Yesterday, I asked Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah whether he agrees that Malaysia needs a new national consensus to return Malaysia to the road of a world-class great nation and save it from the fate and ignominy of a kleptocracy, kakistocracy and a failed state.

Can UMNO return to its founding decades when UMNO Presidents were known for unquestioned integrity and honesty?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Two recent news items attracted widespread attention.

The first quoted the Barisan Nasional secretary-general Annuar Musa as saying that there was a conspiracy to undo the UMNO and BN’s policy of ‘No Anwar, No DAP’.

The second quoted the UMNO advisory board chairman, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who said UMNO’s ‘No DAP, no Anwar’ policy may not be cast in stone. Read the rest of this entry »

Will UMNO MPs split into two factions with one voting against the 2021 Budget and toppling the Muhyiddin government?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Political pundits and cognoscentis are following closely the political scenario to see whether the 38 UMNO Members of Parliament will split into two factions, with one faction voting against the 2021 Budget during the Second Reading on Thursday and toppling the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government of Muhyiddin Yassin.

The views of one faction were articulated by the former Prime Minister, Najib Razak in his maiden speech as the new Chairman of the Barisan Nasional (BN) Backbenchers’ Club expressing conditional support for next year’s Budget. Read the rest of this entry »

Why did Zahid capitulate so fast and so completely after 30 days of Malaysian Game of Thrones?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

The past week confirmed what I said last Thursday that Malaysia was in the midst of an unprecedented political tornado with plots, sub-plots, counter-plots and counter-sub-plots emerging from the woodworks over the shape and form of the government of Malaysia – as the backdoor Muhyiddin government which emerged from the Sheraton Move conspiracy lacked the legitimacy, capability and resources to be an effective government.

But suddenly, with the statement by the UMNO President, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s yesterday reaffirming UMNO’s support for Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the Perikatan Nasional government, Malaysia’s Game of Thrones seemed to have ground to a halt.

Compare Zahid’s statement on Sept 23 that many UMNO and BN MPs had voiced support for PKR President, Anwar Ibrahim to form a new government and that he respected their position to his statement yesterday calling for a “political ceasefire” so that tackling the Covid-19 pandemic and its economic impact on the people can be prioritised.

Najib gripes that UMNO is blamed for the third wave of Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia when it was solely the fault of Bersatu

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Malaysia is now in the midst of an unprecedented political tornado.

The next six-and-half weeks will see plots, sub-plots, counter-plots and counter-sub-plots emerging from the woodworks over the shape and form of the government of Malaysia – as the present backdoor Muhyiddin government which emerged from the byzantine Sheraton Move conspiracy lacks the legitimacy, capability and resources to be an effective government.

This is why in the first public pronouncement by the former Prime Minister and UMNO President, Datuk Seri Najib Razak since he was toppled in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, explaining why UMNO should drop support for Bersatu, he griped that UMNO is blamed for the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia as a result of the Sabah state general election when it was solely the fault of Bersatu.

UMNO would only have changed if it fights for all Malaysians and not just for one race, condemns 1MDB scandal, corruption and abuses of power in all forms

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Sabah UMNO leader Bung Moktar Radin has asked the people of Sabah to give UMNO a chance as UMNO and BN have changed and are committed to a fairer, transparent and trustworthy administration.

At the launching of the UMNO and BN manifesto Aku Janji, the foul-mouthed Bung Mohtar who is notorious for desecrating Parliament with four-lettered words and despicable utterances particularly against women, said UMNO and BN have changed because they want the people to support them.

Why has Tok Mat descended to the level of paid UMNO cybertroopers?

Mengapakah Tok Mat kini seakan-akan seorang askar siber UMNO?

Saya terkejut dengan Timbalan Presiden UMNO Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan yang kini kelihatan seakan-akan seorang askar siber UMNO, menanyakan mengapa saya masih belum bersara dari politik.

Saya telah katakan tahun lepas, semasa PRK Sandakan, yang saya bersedia untuk bertaruh dengan Tok Mat bahawa Tun Dr Mahathir akan mengotakan janji beliau untuk memberikan jawatan Perdana Menteri kepada Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan tidak membubarkan Parlimen sebelum berbuat demikian. Tetapi Tok Mat tidak berani menerima cabaran tersebut walaupun saya telah berikan dua hari untuk beliau menerimanya.

Tidak ada sesiapapun yang terkejut jika seorang askar siber perlu bekerja lebih masa untuk memanipulasikan isu semasa. Tetapi untuk Tok Mat berbuat demikian, sedangkan beliau sendiri pun bertanggungjawab dalam menjayakan Langkah Sheraton — yang telah membuatkan taruhan ini tidak bermakna lagi — yang bukan sahaja telah menamatkan pentadbiran Tun Dr Mahathir dan Pakatan Harapan, malah juga menjadi punca gelombang kedua wabak Covid-19 berlaku dalam negara kita yang telah mencatatkan 6,656 kes dan 108 kematian.

Who will believe that the 42 BN MPs and 18 Pas MPs now support Pakatan Harapan 14GE Manifesto and the arrest and trial of Najib and former top BN leaders – and if so, will they make such a declaration?

Siapakah yang akan percaya 42 MP BN dan 18 MP PAS kini menyokong manifesto PRU14 Pakatan Harapan dan penangkapan Najib dan pimpinan BN — dan jika benar, adakah mereka akan mengumumkan perkara ini?

Parlimen dijadualkan untuk bersidang semula pada 9 Mac ini dan tarikh ini juga menandakan bulan ke-21 selepas pilihan raya bersejarah 9 Mei 2018, di mana seluruh dunia telah menyaksikan kepimpinan Malaysia dalam memperbaharui harapan dalam sistem demokrasi sedangkan berbagai negara menyaksikan pengunduran sistem demokrasi memberi ruang kepada rejim autokratik dan kleptokratik.

Namun begitu, adakah kerajaan Pakatan Harapan akan masih wujud pada 9 Mac 2020 ini, atau adakah kita dan seluruh dunia bakal menyaksikan Malaysia dalam satu keadaan yang buruk dan zalim di mana mandat rakyat yang diberikan pada 9 Mei 2018 untuk menyelamatkan negara ini dikhianati oleh sebuah kerajaan pintu belakang yang menggunakan nama Pakatan Harapan untuk membunuh Pakatan Harapan dan untuk menghalalkan kepulangan kleptokrasi ataupun lebih teruk lagi, kemunculan kakistokrasi di mana anasir yang paling teruk, paling tidak berkelayakan, dan paling tidak berprinsip menduduki jawatan tertinggi negara?

Dalam memperkenalkan Manifesto Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14, Buku Harapan, Pengerusi Pakatan Harapan Tun Dr Mahathir pada 8 Mac 2018 telah mengatakan: Read the rest of this entry »

Asyraf’s lies and hate speeches are the real threats to Malay and Malaysian dignity and the reasons why strong corrective action are necessary and imperative to prevent fake news and hate speech to incite inter-racial and inter-religious polarisation from destroying Malaysia

Pembohongan dan ucapan kebencian daripada Asyraf adalah satu ancaman terhadap maruah orang Melayu dan rakyat Malaysia dan menjadi satu sebab perlunya untuk satu tindakan yang tegas untuk mengekang berita palsu dan ucapan kebencian — yang menghasut polarisasi antara kaum dan agama — daripada terus memusnahkan Malaysia

Bekas Presiden Majlis Peguam Malaysia, Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan telah mendedahkan bahawa kenyataan Ketua Pemuda UMNO berkenaan “10 alasan kenapa Perdana Menteri Dr Mahathir wajar singkirkan DAP dan PKR” gagal untuk melepasi ujian fakta kerana tidak dapat disokong dengan sebarang bukti sokongan. Namun begitu, perkara ini tidak menghentikan penyebaran berterusan berita palsu dan ucapan kebencian yang bertujuan untuk menghasut polarisasi antara kaum dan agama dalam Malaysia pasca PRU-14.

Ambiga berkata beliau mempunyai 50 alasan mengapa UMNO tidak perlu kembali berkuasa. Kini alasan itu bertambah kepada 51.

Penyebaran penipuan, berita palsu dan ucapan kebencian untuk menghasut polarisasi dan konflik antara kaum dan agama kelihatan seperti sudah menjadi satu-satunya strategi pihak Pembangkang untuk melawan usaha Pakatan Harapan untuk dalam menjayakan sebuah Malaysia Baharu yang menjadi negara terulung berteraskan perpaduan, keadilan, kebebasan, kecemerlangan dan integriti.

Saya pernah berharap Kongres Maruah Melayu dapat menjadi perintis untuk satu kempen yang melibatkan semua rakyat Malaysia untuk mencapai Zaman Kegemilangan Malaysia sebagai negara terulung berteraskan perpaduan, keadilan, kebebasan, kecemerlangan dan integriti serta membuktikan kepada dunia bahawa Malaysia adalah kisah kejayaan pertemuan empat tamadun besar dunia – Melayu / Islam, Cina, India dan Barat – bukannya menjadi gagal kerana Konflik Peradaban.

Harapan ini ternyata silap. Read the rest of this entry »

An example of the evil and lunacy of the recent upsurge of fake news and hate speech to incite inter-racial and inter-religious polarisation and conflagration

I discovered today another evil and lunatic example in the recent upsurge of fake news and hate speech to incite inter-racial and inter-religious polarisation and confrontation and why the government must take immediate action against such dangerous trash.

The following post on the social media accused the DAP as the real organiser of the Malay Dignity Congress, making use of Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and Bersatu.

Under the heading “KONGRES MARUAH MELAYU AGENDA POLITIK TERDESAK DAP MELALUI PPBM – MELAYU JANGAN TERJERAT”, it said among other things:

“Seperti yang kita tahu keterlibatan Hamzah Zainuddin dan Latif Ahmad menjelaskan bahawa ianya dirancang oleh PPBM melalui beberapa ‘Pelompat Parti’ dan YB yang tidak bermaruah. AMBO juga yakin bahawa kongres ini merupakan perancangan DAP menggunakan Mahathir dan PPBM untuk menyaingi atau sekali lagi menipu dan cubaan untuk mengelirukan orang melayu dengan kongres-kongres seperti ini.

“Hamzah Zainuddin dan ramai lagi pelompat parti yang berada dalam PPBM ini sedang digunakan oleh Mahathir untuk memecahkan kesatuan melayu yang bersatu dibawah Penyatuan Ummah UMNO/PAS. Sekali lagi DAP menggunakan formula yang sama iaitu pecah dan perintah. Mahathir diberi tanggungjawab dalam memecahkan penyatuan melayu antara UMNO dan PAS. Read the rest of this entry »

Malaysians must give serious attention to the latest Oxford Internet Institute (OII) Report on “The Global Disinformation Order: 2019 Global Inventory of Organised Social Media Manipulation” as it gives a timely warning of the national risks if fake news and hate speech to incite inter-racial and inter-religious polarisation in Malaysia are allowed untrammelled licence

Malaysians must given serious attention to the latest Oxford Internet Institute (OII) Report on “The Global Disinformation Order : 2019 Global Inventory of Organised Social Media Manipulaiton” as its give a timely warning of the national risks if fake news and hate speech to incite inter-racial and inter-religious polarisation in Malaysia are allowed untrammeled licence.

Fake news and hate speech are evil influences by themselves, but when coupled with the agenda to incite inter-racial and inter-religious polarisation in plural Malaysia, they become exceedingly toxic and destructive which must be checked if the fabric of Malaysian society is not to be torn asunder.

The latest OII report finds that organised social media manipulation has more than doubled since 2017, with 70 countries using “computational propaganda” to manipulate public opinion.

Facebook is the platform of choice and is used in formally organised campaigns taking place in 56 countries.

The report states that such tools are used in 45 democracies, by politicians and political parties, to amass fake followers or spread manipulated media to garner voter support. Read the rest of this entry »

PAS-UMNO Himpunan Penyatuan Ummah (HPU) is not about Malays or Muslims but about saving UMNO from oblivion and keeping UMNO leaders out of jail and giving PAS the opportunity to be Big Brother in a PAS-UMNO alliance and for PAS President to have a shot to be Prime Minister of Malaysia

Himpunan Penyatuan Ummah (HPU) PAS-UMNO bukan tentang orang Melayu atau Islam, sebaliknya tentang menyelamatkan UMNO daripada dilupakan dan untuk mengelakkan pemimpin UMNO daripada meringkuk di dalam penjara dan memberikan PAS peluang untuk merasa menjadi Abang Besar dalam gabungan PAS-UMNO dan untuk Presiden PAS mencuba nasib untuk menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia

Himpunan Penyatuan Ummah (HPU) PAS-UMNO di Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra UMNO Sabtu lalu, bukanlah tentang Melayu, Islam atau Raja-raja Melayu tetapi untuk menyelamatkan UMNO daripada dilupakan, malah untuk mengelakkan pemimpin UMNO daripada meringkuk di dalam penjara sepanjang hayat mereka dek kerana amalan rasuah dan salah guna kuasa semasa mereka berada di dalam kerajaan, dan memberikan peluang untuk PAS merasa jadi “Abang Besar” dalam gabungan PAS-UMNO dan menjadi penyelamat kepada UMNO yang kleptokratik — inilah sebab mengapa ia digelar sebagai klepto-teokrasi — dan untuk memberikan peluang yang julung-julung kalinya buat Presiden PAS untuk menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia setelah dinafikan peluang berkenaan semasa berada di dalam gabungan Pakatan Rakyat.

Untuk mencapai objektif-objektif berkenaan, gabungan PAS-UMNO perlu mencipta suasana yang dipenuhi rasa ketakutan, cemas dan kebencian yang tidak berasas dan diada-adakan di kalangan orang Melayu dan Islam, yang merupakan majoriti pengundi di Semenanjung Malaysia, dan untuk pertama kalinya setelah merdeka, kaum Melayu dan agama Islam kononnya berdepan krisis eksistensial, menepikan tiga fakta asas berikut:

Pertama, siapa yang berada di dalam kerajaan sejak enam dekad yang lalu dan bagaimana mungkin untuk kerajaan Pakatan Harapan memperbetulkan masalah yang diciptakan UMNO dalam tempoh masa satu, dua atau lima tahun sedangkan hegemoni UMNO dalam kerajaan telah bersarang selama enam dekad lamanya, yang agenda sebenarnya bukan untuk mengangkat taraf kehidupan bumiputera tetapi sebaliknya untuk mewujudkan UMNO-putra yang hari ini telah menciptakan kleptokrat global Malaysia pertama yang menjadi watak penting dalam skandal rasuah membabitkan 1MDB. Pakatan Harapan tidak akan menghapuskan apa yang baik untuk negara, tetapi akan melaksanakan pembaharuan terhadap apa yang buruk dan menjejaskan negara;

Kedua, fitnah terbesar bahawa DAP kononnya anti-Melayu, anti-Islam dan anti- Raja-raja Melayu, sedangkan DAP telah berulang kali menegaskan, di dalam Parlimen dan di dalam dokumen dasar sejak lima dekad lalu, dan di dalam pengumuman dasar asas gabungan politik DAP, sama ada Gagasan Rakyat, Barisan Alternatif, Pakatan Rakyat dan terbaharu Pakatan Harapan, menegaskan dan menegaskan semula sokongan dan komitmen DAP terhadap perkara asas dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan, terutamanya berhubung bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa rasmi, Islam sebagai agama rasmi dan sistem raja berpelembagaan di Malaysia.

Ketiga, realiti demografi di Malaysia yang memberi jaminan bahawa orang Melayu tidak akan kehilangan kuasa politik, tak kira apa jua yang akan berlaku terhadap UMNO atau PAS dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang. Read the rest of this entry »

The PAS-UMNO HPU and its Charter last Saturday have resulted in escalation of fake news and hate speech in the manipulation of issues of race and religion to polarise inter-racial and inter-religious relations in the country

The PAS-UMNO Himpunan Penyatuan Ummah (HPU) and its Charter last Saturday have resulted in the escalation of fake news and hate speech in the manipulation of issues of race and religion in the past five days to polarise inter-racial and inter-religious relations in the country.

First, UMNO Vice President and former Minister, Datuk Ismail Sabri perpetrated the fake news that Jakim and the halal certification process had been transferred to the Finance Ministry, and disseminated the hate speech to create alarm, fear and hate among Muslims that non-Muslims are now responsible for the halal certification process.

Next, on Malaysia Day on Monday, PAS President, Datuk Seri Hadi Awang perpetrated the vile and divisive fake news at a Malaysia Day function in Bintulu that DAP wanted to give control of the state and its wealth to the Chinese and disseminated the equally vile and divisive hate speech to create alarm, fear and hate among Malays and Muslims that the DAP was “the biggest leader” in the Pakatan Harapan government in Putrajaya to ensure “the wealth for Chinese only, not for all people; other people are left behind”!

Third, since the PAS-UMNO HPU and its Charter, there had been an upsurge of vile and divisive fake news and hate speech on the social media exploiting the 3Rs to depict a false picture of DAP as anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty.

Fourth, the PAS Deputy President, Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man yesterday ramped up the attack on DAP alleging that it was pursuing a “Christianisation agenda”, citing as example the speech by the Deputy Youth and Sports Minister and DAP MP for Bukit Mertajam, Steven Sim, at a “New Malaysia Narrative” forum on “Anak Malaysia? Our Story of Past, Present and Future Malaysia” at Mega Chinese Methodist Church in Kota Damansara.

I was shocked by Tuan Ibrahim’s allegation when I first read it in the media, but Steven Sim has since explained that he was speaking to Christians in a church and had discussed their responsibilities as Malaysians. Read the rest of this entry »

Third proof that HPU National Co-operation Charter is Charter for Fake News and Hate Speech – upsurge of fake news and hate speech on social media exploiting 3Rs to depict a false picture of DAP as anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty within 48 hours of the Charter

The third proof that the so-called National Co-operation Charter signed by PAS and UMNO at the Himpunan Penyatuan Ummah (HPU) at the UMNO headquarters at PWTC on Saturday was actually a Charter for Fake New and Hate Speech was the upsurge of fake news and hate speech on the social media exploiting the 3Rs to depict a false picture of DAP as anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty within 48 hours of the signing of the Charter.

The first proof was the speech by the UMNO Vice President Datuk Ismail Sabri at the HPU on Saturday perpetrating the fake news that Jakim and the halal certification process had been transferred to the Finance Ministry, and the hate speech to create alarm, fear and hate among Muslims that non-Muslims are now responsible for the halal certification process.

The second proof was the speech by the PAS President, Datuk Seri Hadi Awang in Bintulu at a Malaysia Day event where he perpetrated the fake news that DAP wanted to give control of the state and its wealth to the Chinese and the hate speech to create alarm, fear and hate among Malays and Muslims that the DAP was “the biggest leader” in the Pakatan Harapan government in Putrajaya to ensure that “the wealth for Chinese only, not for all people; other people are left behind”!

The third proof was that within 48 hours of the signing of the so-called National Co-operation Charter by PAS and UMNO leaders, there was an upsurge of fake news and hate speech on the social media exploiting the 3Rs to depict a false picture of DAP as anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty.
