TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

Future of Democracy in Asia 85

 

Thank you very much for this opportunity to speak to the audience here. Malaysia has gone through a very furious transition. I was the leader for 22 years of the government party which ruled Malaysia for 61 years.

Now I am now leading the opposition and the opposition has now become the government. So I am not changing my stand first I say that I still see have the same old ideas about the authoritarian rule which I might been accused of being dictator during my time. But I beg to differ I was not a dictator but that doesn’t make anybody change their minds. Whenever they mention my name they always described me as a dictator and today a dictator is going to talk about democracy. But I don’t know whether I’m qualified or not. But I will try.

In the first place of course democracy is not an Asian invention it came from the west. Again I suppose from Greece but now the whole world has been told that you have to become democratic else has seen rapid changes taking place in many places.

And as a result of trying to be democratic they have met worst fate then when they were under authoritarian rule. So does that mean that authoritarian rule is best. Well of course we deny that because we think that the only system of government that should be practised by all countries must be the democratic system. But democracy is not something easy to handle. The basic rules of course is that the majority of the people have a right to choose a government to govern their country. But even in a democracy there
can be autocrat to rule rather tightly as I have been accused of. But if you want to make government work you have to have certain disciplines.

Asian minds are not accustomed to the idea that country can be ruled by the people. We have always had monarchs with absolute power and we have survived in a way of course. There were a lot of criticism again the monarchies rule they tend to be rather cruel to their own people in order to sustain themselves.

But now Asian are told that they should have democracy. And democracy mean not having any monarch or any dictator. It is people who will choose their leaders would lead the country. The assumption of course is that the majority of the people must know what is good for themselves.

Unfortunately they are distracted by other things like money for example. If they’re given money some of them would vote for whoever gives money whether he is a democrat or he is an authoritarian ruler. So sometimes or rather quite often it happens that democratically elected ruler can behave like a dictator and that’s what happened to Malaysia since 2013 when the Prime Minister who has been ousted took over. He introduced into democracy a new slogan and that slogan is called Cash is King.

In other words he’s saying that it is legitimate and proper to bribe in order to do to get anything done. But prime ministers are not paid very well. I think if you are in the public sector doing business you’re better paid. But for Prime Minister who is running whole country the pay is very very low. So if you want to bribe and you don’t have money he had to think of some ways to get money. And the previous Prime Minister decided that he would steal the money because he hasn’t got enough money to give bribes which will change the minds of people.

That show that even if we elect a ruler doesn’t mean that he will behave himself. There are mechanism for removing ruler who is not fair who is cruel and all that but sometimes the whole system can be can be converted to the dictators ideas and they will carry out his instruction because they know that they will be very well paid for that. So even in a democracy there can be dictators. And we find that when working with the democratic government too many people have got ideas which they think should be carried out out by the government and because they had different ideas from the government we have opposition parties.

Opposition parties normally can only criticise the government but seldom they can overthrow the government or bring government down. Unless of course it is a two party system.But two party is not very democratic. It means some people will have to forget their own ideas their own ideals in order to be a part of the other party the opposition. Only if there is a united opposition can democracy, can there be election to form the government.But it is not easy to have just two parties because many people would believe that they they are the right people to form the government.

And so when you see the regime change taking place in the Arab countries they, every one of those people who campaign, who demonstrated in order to overthrow the authoritarian government every one of them felt that they were the ones who should be running the government. But they are not united they come from various parties and the only reason why they think the government should be brought down is because they think they would be able to rule after the government is overthrown. But there are so many people who wants to be the government and of course immediately after the overthrow of authoritarian ruler there be will quarrel among the people who overthrew him.

Because you belong to different parties with different ideas. The end result may be Civil War at least tension and instability in the country. And they see in some countries they lost the ability to run the country. They become Failed Nations because they kept on quarrelling quarrelling with each other and not getting any benefit at all from democracy.

So we cant claim democracy as if one size shoes which fix all because each country each people have their own cultures and some of their cultures are so strong that it is difficult for them to change from having a dictator of an absolute monarch and replacing him with someone you elect merely by making a tick on the piece of paper. This is not common with them and therefore this idea can not be easily practise in many many countries in Asia and the Middle East. So we need to accept that democracy is not a perfect system it has his flaws but to make it work the mindset and the value system of the people must be capable of accepting rule by a person who is elected every 5 years. Sometimes of course it doesn’t last 5 years or something may go on to rule the country for 5 terms.

But all these are still seen quite democratic but some will fail because of the quarrells that take place all the time with the people snapping at the government and the government spending time and money in order to govern the country. He will not be able to govern in the country because he has to face a lot of disruptions coming from the very people who elected him.

So in Asia today we find not too many democracies. India is supposed to be the biggest democracy and but the others are quite totalitarian such as kingdom and countries of central Asia. In the east of course although leaders may be elected the ability to rule is not so good because of the constant sniping at the ruler whoever he may be. So the future of democracy in in Asia I think well will be something that will will not be achieve overnight as happens with some of the Middle Eastern countries. They change over night and today we see more problems than it was before they had democracy. You see civil war you see a lot of fighting and you’ll see a lot of disruption of the environment and they are unable to rule well or to get others to come and invest in their countries.

So I hope that people will understand that it takes time for people to become democratic. The value system must be suitable for democracy before democracy it self can be used as a method of running a country.

Thank you very much.

    Tun

    How many Malaysians realize that our beloved Malaysia became one of the four most important small countries of the World without much effort but only through the efforts and thinking power of just one person, a brilliant and courageous Leader, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    And how many Malaysians realize that Lee Kuan Yew with all the bluster and hot air FAILED to bring Singapore to be something unique and special. At the end of his day, Singapore ended up with common garden legacies created by him which FAILED eg. i) FTs. ii) The Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP. iii) The 2 casinos. iv) Temasek.

    These were Lee Kuan Yew’s contrived legacies for his inheritors after the loss of the huge and profitable Dark Under-counter trades which were mentioned by me previously.

    The failures came up for two reasons :- First, the eternal obsession of Lee Kuan Yew to do down or capture Malaysia as a slave colony. This became a dangerous distraction as it is shown to be today. Second. His thirst for Singapore to be academically the First in the World a’la the Ivy League and Oxbridge. This thinking was out-dated in the rough and tumble World of dog eat dog in terms of everything. In other words, Lee Kuan Yew paid in spades at his citizens expense by being a COPY-CAT.

    In stark contrast our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad proved his originality in ideas for the visionary development of Malaysia during his 22 year administration. No one can call Tun a copy-cat because all his projects were carefully thought out and planned accordingly. These stood the test of time as it is well-heralded.

    In other words, Tun with his intellect and common sense which are naturally inherent in his brain through a good dose of good DNA performed and delivered the vital goods as any leading Prime Minister of any other country could do so. He has always been World Class. Each of Tun’s project was original and derived from his intellectually inherent ideas which originated in his brain.

    But with Lee Kuan Yew who took an entirely different stance by worshipping the lofty temples of Western academia like the Ivy League and Oxbridge, put himself into a mental strait-jacket of being a copy-cat of everything which was Western, lock stock and barrel.

    In other words, Lee Kuan Yew’s brains did not learn how to think even though he obtained high marks at Cambridge but entered a down hill slope after leaving the university’s portals. And for him, it was a life-long down hill slope all the way.

    On the other hand, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad learnt how to think thoroughly and consider all options before he decided what to do.

    Hence, some ordinary folk found him firm and decisive in his Policies which they labelled as dictatorial without considering their own lack of intellect in understanding persons with higher intellect than them.

    This trait of labelling others is common amongst Malaysians to hide their inferiority complex. This also show the common use of insults and abuses by Chinese yellow mangy dogs which bark YUP! YUP! YUP!, resident in this Blog !

    But the main thrust of my comment is to show WHAT A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY LEE KUAN YEW MISSED BY NOT INVESTING IN GOLD WHEN THE PRICE WAS US$ 300 per ounce ! At the material time, he invested in FTs, 2 casinos, Temasek and the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPIPP which all FAILED to deliver. And he lost billions of US Dollars unnecessarily.

    The FTs were like pushing the economy with a string which could not breach 3% GDP 2002 to 2017. Temaeek was ill conceived because GIC was superbly managed for 30 years. At a stroke of the pen, billions of Singapore dollars were invested in mismanaged UBS and other common garden entities. The 2 casinos only provided more overcrowding in the Region. The Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP was a dangerous gamble. It only worked if 100% of the Malaysians were stupid.

    The four aforementioned legacies for the inheritors were thought to be safe by Lee Kuan Yew which did not consider that SINGAPORE MUST HAVE SOMETHING VALUABLE AND IMPORTANT TO RUB SHOULDERS WITH THE US AND THE EU !

    He forgot Singapore had nothing, not even water.

    Therefore, IT WAS ONLY NATURAL AND POWERFUL FOR SINGAPORE TO INVEST INTO 5,000 TONS OF GOLD AT US$ 300 per ounce despite the World Bank complaints. If Lee Kuan Yew could persuade Uncle Sam to do the Black Trades, hoarding Gold in Uncle Sam’s interest is no problem !

    Imagine Singapore having 5,000 tons of GOLD next to the United States with 7,000 tons, Germany 4,000 tons, France and Italy 3.000 tons, Russian and China 2,000 tons and India 1,000 tons. A real mover and shaker of the World.

    Furthermore, new industries in gold jewellery, banks, bonds, storage, refineries, exchange, etc would be created. A World Hub in Gold in Singapore which would then be worth guarding with a 300,000 strong military which is now only guarding peanuts.

    With Singapore’s skills in BLUFFOLOGY who knows whether Singapore’s Gold is in Singapore or not. Or whether it had really 5,000 tons more or less.

    All in all, 5,000 tons of GOLD in Singapore hands at US$ 300 per ounce would be worth more than US$ 2,000 per ounce NOW. Our beloved Malaysia would have become Singapore’s breakfast every morning. Instead of doing all the sneaky things to make our beloved Malaysia submit to the tiny red dot’s domination.

    Man proposes. God disposes. Fortunately, Lee Kuan Yew missed this GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO DOMINATE MALAYSIA WITH GOLD. He was too smart by far and no one dared to suggest something RADICAL AND POLITICAL TO FIRST DOMINATE MALAYSIA AND THEN THE WORLD AND BE UP THERE WITH THE GREATS WHICH LEE KUAN YEW HANKERED FOR A LIFETIME!

    This Golden Opportunity in Gold for Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore to be really on top of Malaysia is NOW GONE FOREVER !

    At the end of the day, it seems our beloved Malaysia being Normal and Humble willy-nilly is now ONE OF FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN AND MALAYSIA. Thanks to the brilliance and courage of one person, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who only used his logic and common sense. IMPORTANTLY TUN KNEW HOW TO THINK.

    The Story of Lee Kuan Yew and his missed Golden Opportunity illustrates that IT IS NOT THE UNIVERSITY THAT MATTERS. IT IS THE ABILITY OF HOW TO THINK AFTER LEAVING THE UNIVESTIY PORTALS THAT MATTERS. Our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is the finest example of a person who knows how to THINK ! Hence, his long and successful career in MEDICINE AND POLITICS. Now with current events, there are so many examples of people who do not think !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Tun

    My previous comment on the Crooked Bridge and Lee Kuan Yew succinctly revealed the root cause or motive of his Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP creation to save his LEGACY FOR HIS INHERITORS after leading all up the garden path from his life-long self created OBSESSION to do down Malaysia and other derring-dos like a huge military which perennially puts undue pressure on the social welfare services of a purported Socialist Government or State. The poor suffer through the high cost of everything.

    It is thought absorbing to note that Lee Kuan Yew placed great store and priority on the success of his Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP by his journey of last resort at the age of 85 in 2009 to the hot and humid Ulus under the pretext of saying farewell to old friends including your good self, Tun and had tea with the ex-First Lady of the land but not the Kingdom. As far as I know, his siblings and family members avoided visiting Malaysia since 1965 !

    His desperation arose by the realization of the first recession in Singapore at the turn of the 21st Century which underlined the writing on the proverbial wall for Singapore that Lee Kuan Yew’s real Miracle was over with the loss of the Black Trades to the BRICS through the 1990s. A significant movement was his daughter-in-law became the head of a speculative and ill-conceived outfit known as Temasek after a spell in the Chartered Industries which was in the armaments industry, due to a lack of business.

    It is important for all Malaysians to be aware what affected them in the past, and will do so at present and future. With full information and knowledge, then all Malaysians are as one in Unity, Loyalty and Thought. As it is now due to decades of brainwashing being wafted from the South with the assistance of the resources of the State, some Malaysians THINK THEY ARE SMART SINGAPOREANS. It is my duty to reveal all facts concerning the Sovereignty, National and Public Interest of our beloved Malaysia. No more. No less. Let the yellow mangy dogs bark YUP! YUP! YUP!

    I reckon the Third Generation of Malaysians from 1965 will stand in Unity, Loyalty and Thought being unaffected by brainwashing from the South.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Our beloved Malaysia will rise and rise with each passing day !

    Tun

    It irks me to read comments about why the Crooked Bridge should not be built in recent weeks.

    I find these comments are like all of us agreed to take-off in a plane and once in the air, some wanted to turn back and land. The Crooked Bridge was approved and agreed to during your last tenure as Prime Minister. Its construction began accordingly.

    NOW ITS CONSTRUCTION IS NON-NEGOTIABLE IN THE NAME OF SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL AND PUBLIC INTEREST.

    What is the rationale for abandoning it by the BN Government which came into Power after your distinguished service in 2004 ?

    The same BN Government eagerly rushed to the International Court of Justice at the Hague to lose the Rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh to Singapore in a jiffy when there was no action for over 50 years and after which, its elites published a book to humiliate our beloved Malaysia’s loss due to tango for two. What is so clever about this contrived maneuver ?

    Not only that, they opened the doors of the Khazanah to PAP cadres to pick at the low-hanging fruits which rightly belonged to us, Malaysians. Further to their cause with the full support of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, a hard-core PAP cadre of the same ilk was installed as the Chief Editor of the UMNO owned NSTP and to make him comfortable, he was given a lush Apache Sime Darby contract.

    From 2004, the 4th Floor Boys were the de facto Government until a stone felled on their chief think tank. Man proposes. God disposes.

    And much more Singapore connived theft of our Malaysia’s rights and assets were conducted in broad daylight with the best just taken out of the Khazanah without even a thank you very much ! That’s Lee Kuan Yew for you and me Tun !

    Why should Singapore objects to the modernisation of the old Causeway built at the turn of the 20th Century ? Because of Lee Kuan Yew’s objection the present Bridge on the Malaysian side had to be designed as such to modernise it.

    Now this objection came from Lee Kuan Yew who had already deliberately put up the EYE-JARRING DESIGN OF THE SINGAPORE CIQ COMPLEX PAINTED BLACK TO WARD OFF THE EVIL KARMA FROM JB AND MALAYSIA AS BELIEVED BY THIS SUPERSTITIOUS PERSON !

    His claim to fame had left him with 48 Failed Public Policies of Fables and Foibles. Yet, smelly yellow mangy dogs in this distinguished Blog still bark YUP! YUP! YUP! in his support of an ordinary fellow who made 48 horrible mistakes of Failed Public Policies at the expense not only of his own citizens but others like the Free Thais and Malaysians as well.

    Here is a selection of Lee Kuan Yew’s horrible mistakes out of 48 as an AUTHORITARIAN LEADER backed by the West during the Cold War 1948 to 1989 :-

    1. Lee Kuan Yew created the Anti-Cambridge Godless Neo-communist Political and Socio-economic System imposed on the citizens without their consent. This was supported by his Apparatchiks and the West. The only AUTHORITARIAN REGIME SUPPORTED BY THE WEST AFTER THE COLD WAR. Long ago, the System was called by the Western media, ‘authoritarian capitalism’ or ‘benevolent authoritarianism’ or ‘rich Cuba without the havanas but the bananas.’

    2. Lee Kuan Yew’s epic decision on the 2 Child Family Policy in 1972 was the ONLY ONE ever undertaken by a leader in this World. It was inhuman. Not even Hitler thought about it. Any one with scientific training would have abhorred this cruel Policy which ran counter to the all time classic of scientific thought as propounded by Charles Darwin in his ‘Survival of the Species’ in 1885 ! Lee Kuan Yew intended to create ‘geniuses’ like him and his wife. It is now proven he was no genius but self-narcissism and obsession promoted by the resources of the State of Singapore with his 48 mistakes. For over a decade, the 2 Child Policy brought untold sufferings, suicides, divorces, mental breakdowns, enforced sterilizations, emigrations, abortions etc which were enforced by official statutes like Income Tax to force the compliance of this cruel Policy. This thoughtless 2 Child Family Policy’s result can be seen to-day with 3.2 Million locals, 1.2 Million FTs and 800,000 PRs of which there are only 900,000 Chinese males aged 21 to 50 ! Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population. 2011. In a dynamic, competitive and tumultuous World, what can 900,000 Chinese do for Singapore’s future ?

    3. Lee Kuan Yew’s venture into the lush Black Trades during the Cold War 1948 to 1989 with Uncle Sam’s blessings, actually distracted him from true Nation building based on Democratic Precepts and Ideals. Not only that, his Life long obsession to do down Malaysia in every way or in more ways than one with his legal specialty of the fine print of dotting the ‘i’ and crossing the ‘t’ put paid to this weakness of his character which brooked no COMPASSION, TOLERANCE OR DISSENT which he believed to be weak traits but strangely in the field of human conduct, would have made him strong like our good Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ! Those around him became YES men without any check of balance especially after the departure of Dr Goh Keng Swee and S. Rajaratnam, the PAP ideologue. His distinguished wife played a role too in this.

    And what were the BLACK TRADES OF SINGAPORE 1948 TO 1989 ? These were as follows :-

    i) Hard and soft arms. ii) Sanctions breaking – China, North Korea, Myanmar, Middle East, Africa etc. iii) Toadying up to Dictators. iv)Smuggling – Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines etc. v) Money laundering. vi) Collecting Vietnam War debris free. vii) US R & R. viii) US Military bunkering. ix) US Aid. x) Income Tax Evasion by overseas Singapore companies.

    THIS BLACK TRADE WAS THE REAL ‘LEE KUAN YEW MIRACLE’. NOT THOSE GLITTERING BUILDINGS, GLCs etc. which actually do not produce fantastic revenues like THE BLACK TRADES MENTIONED ABOVE !

    For a very small population of only 2 Million 1948 to 1989 and a honest Government, the huge profits were not only meaningful but thrust Singapore into the First World by the 1990s. Now without the black trades profit, Singapore is left dangling in mid-air.

    The flashy Singapore World of glittering buildings and roads, Changi Airport, reclamation, GLCs, Asian Dollar, etc were the result of advice given to Lee Kuan Yew by the Dutch UN economic expert Dr Albert Winsemius, Adviser to the Singapore Government 1962 to 1984. Human development was the preserve of Lee Kuan Yew who adroitly screwed his own citizens down from 100% in 1959 to 62% in 2010. Vide Singapore Government White Paper on Population 2011

    After the end of the Cold War 1948 to 1989, Uncle Sam expounded his hegemonic spiel which eventually re-bounded on him, ‘ Globalization. Free Trade. Human Rights.’ in 1990. Thereafter, the BRICS moved onto Singapore’s lush hard and soft arms trades which spelt the end of her fizzy 7% GDP. This dropped to 2% GDP by 2002 from which Singapore NEVER RECOVERED AND HER GDP COULD NOT BREACH 3% for 15 years, 2002 to 2017 ! THIS IS SINGAPORE’S DILEMMA TODAY ! Man proposes. God disposes. Never harm or injure others if a person wants to sleep well at night. LEE KUAN YEW HAD BLOOD ON HIS HANDS WITH THE ARMS TRADE.

    In 1978, I came across Singapore’s arms trade by accident. After turning round the biggest corporate bankruptcy Folex Industries Berhad in 1977, I was looking for an investor in the Company. I was introduced to David Hsu the owner of Diaward Industries Pte Lid which produced soft arms like tents, webbing, helmets etc for the military. He told me that his Libyan agent retired to Monte Carlo after 5 years ! He also mentioned that his business was very profitable because people fight all the time ! With the advent of the BRICS after 1990, he closed shop and produced security gates for shopping malls instead.

    4) Lee Kuan Yew paid over the hill (as was his custom when he wanted to reward tycoons or achieve what he wanted) for Thaksin’s business to prevent Thaksin from building the Isthmus of Kra Canal. This purchase split Free Thailand into two bitter factions for the very first time in Thai history to this day. Innocent Thai men, women and children were either killed or injured. This also brought on 2 military coups d’etat. Lee Kuan Yew again has blood on his hands ! His thinking on the Kra Canal is based on 19th Century thinking on harbours. He believed the Kra Canal could finish off Singapore’s harbour trade. He was wrong. Even if the construction of the Kra Canal is announced to-day, it does not mean that the it would be ready tomorrow. The construction takes at least 10 years if not more during which time Singapore being a perfect logistic centre in everything from finance to supplies to managerial manpower would have gained tremendously. But Lee Kuan Yew killed the goose that laid the golden egg for Singapore with his dog in the manger attitude. THIS SELFISH ATTITUDE CAUSED HIS CITIZENS TO BE UNEMPLOYED WITH NO INCOME FROM 2002 TO 2018 with no foreseeable solution in sight. During the construction, Singapore could have not only re-invented itself but also grasp the opportunity which came to hand in the form of the Canal. But 16 years have gone by without any productive or beneficial result to the Singaporeans. As an example, just look at the way the malls and retail houses in the United States are killed by the e-business of the Net. It’s the AIR not the SEA which will rule the next 100 years.

    With only 4 selected examples of Lee Kuan Yew’s 48 mistakes, the results of these mistakes so engendered are not only horrifying but cruel in all respects in the last hold-out of AUTHORITARIANISM AS SUPPORTED BY THE WEST IN DEMOCRATIC ASIA !

    Conclusively, to his mindless Malaysian supporters, the objection and non-cooperation by Lee Kuan Yew on the New Bridge WAS HIS HORRIBLE MISTAKE, ONE OF 48 MONUMENTAL ONES OF HIS FAILED PUBLIC POLICIES OF FABLES AND FOIBLES. YUP! YUP! YUP! so barked the residential yellow mangy dog of this distinguished Blog.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! As we Malaysians say ‘Where got not to build the Crooked Bridge, stupid ?

    When the New and Incorruptible Government took over from the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government on 10 May 2018, I thought that Penang would take proper steps in its developments of the island because of its unique position – firstly as a unique tourist spot and secondly as a catalyst for the development for itself and the Northern States as far South as Perak.

    I also thought given the opportunity with a friendly Central Government, Penang should have a review of its previous endeavours which got it no-where because of its tendencies to ape Singapore which one should consider as an entirely different kettle of fish altogether !

    Further, it seemed logical and practical to me that the State of Penang, Kedah and Perlis should get together to develop the Region socio-economically together because before the arrival of the British in 1779, Penang and Kedah were one. It does not make much socio-economic sense for these two States to do things on their own when they are part of each other, demographically and geographically.

    Instead of competing for the same industries etc, it pays for the 2 States to complement each other as regards all activities.

    My view is that Penang should be developed as the No 1 Resort Destination of the World. Instead of the half hearted and lukewarm activities undertaken towards this goal.

    And Kedah be encouraged to be a top industrial and eco-tourism centre of the North Region.

    A sort of Klang Valley of the North was envisaged.

    With this approach there are lots and lots of opportunities for all to fill in between these activities.

    I see with proper dove-tailing, monitoring, funding and planning, Penang and Kedah become powerful and effective as conjoined socio-economic States.

    There is no necessity whatsoever to dig, reclaim or chop and change the present pristine beauty of Penang Island. The emphasis should be on its mainland portion.

    And as for Kedah, this is the most important State with a huge socio-economic potential given the ideas and the inclination. All the ingredients are there for the taking and the making.

    Why even today there seems to be a measure of hesitation as regards Penang and Kedah, this I do not understand ? I have so many ideas for the development of these two valuable real estates without aping Singapore for now and the future rapidly and cheaply. Yet, things seem to be stuck in the mud somewhere and somehow.

    Let’s us hope tomorrow will be a better day for these 2 States. No more agonising haplessly over floods and landslides with unnecessary deaths and injuries to anyone or dream about the wonderful revenues accrued by Singapore which actually were derived from the arms trades of 1948 to 1990 and not from what we see today, its glittering buildings.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Penang, Kedah and Perlis are the States with tremendous potential with minimum cost if the right ideas are retrieved from the deep recesses of the brains.

    Horror of horrors this morning Tun !

    All the newspapers at PETRONAS and Shell were sold out in Malay, English, Chinese and Indian languages. A sign of the times Tun !

    What caused this sell-out of the papers ? Was it the great Penang land-slide or the great menu of CBT, money laundering and bribes as alleged by our ex-DPM.?

    All in all, I could see the look of incredulity in the face of some fellow citizens around me. Whatever was the cause of this silent uproar in the minds of the citizens, one thing which is uppermost in the minds of all must be the question. Who is next ? Man proposes. God disposes.

    There were so many times in my Life that I thought about how many of us could be the PM or the DPM or even a YB ?

    Positions which some hanker for throughout their lives. The privileged person in such an honourable position must surely presents himself in the most acceptable manner as were possible. And not have the mind-set of a jaga kereta who is just as honourable as anyone else, with all due respect !

    But our beloved Malaysia between 2004 to 2018 seemed to engendered a whole generation of elites with the minds of jagas kereta – money for services rendered in all forms and manner.

    How could such a dastardly mind-set happened in a supposedly mature and progressive Society like our beloved Malaysia independent since 1957. Her progress was as smooth as could be from 1957 to 2004 after which ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE AS REGARDS SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST, PUBLIC INTEREST,SPIRITUAL VALUES, ETHICS, PROPRIETY, STANDARDS, INTEGRITY, HONOUR,ETC.

    This spelt the complete collapse of an established Government which was in existence for over 60 years. Fortunately, we have a responsible, courageous and brilliant Leader in the form of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad or else our Malaysian Goose would have been properly cooked by Singapore via the Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP and eaten up by China for breakfast.

    What had happened to our beloved Malaysia between 2004 to 2018 was astounding in historical terms !

    Man proposes. God disposes.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    When you put any tom, dick and harry to replace the name that mubarakchan hates so much, then, you will know whats in his mind.

    When journalist from straits time asked the late mr lee on what he wants to see singapore to be in 50 years from now, he answered immediately with ‘ by that time i am death’.

    If he had choice to choose again, i think he will not want to be the prime minister of singapore again because thats hard work, huge responsibility and lots of sacrifices needed to be made.

    The rest is history.

    It is interesting to note that as a trained scientist like you, I have noticed that whenever I present the through facts about how LEE KUAN YEW CHEATED TO GET INTO CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY BY THE BACKDOOR WITHOUT THE REQUISITE OPEN ENTRANCE, THE REQUISITE LATIN OR GREEK AND WAS OVER-AGED BY 4 YEARS WHICH WAS FORBIDDEN BY THE RULES OF CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY.

    This afternoon the screen of my computer exploded with the seismic force of a 9.0 earthquake with the multiple revelations of the malfeasances of the 2nd highest leader in the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government as charged in Court.

    THIS SI A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO STOP ONCE AND FOR ALL THE OPEN AND CRASS BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION OF THOSE IN POWER BY TAKING BACK ALL THE CORRUPT MONOPOLISTIC FRANCHISES ONCE THE COURT HAS RULED ON THEM AND RE-TENDER OPENLY.

    It is only proper in the name of good governance like Japan that the corrupted franchises be re-tendered openly on an even level playing field so that in the name of justice and fair play all entrepreneur are equal in the competitive World of business.

    As we can see now clearly that only those who are prepared to pay the big bucks not only gain access but acquire precious monopolies for prices FAR BELOW THE FAIR MARKET PRICE Because if an open tender had been undertaken by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, A FAR HIGHER PRICE WOULD HAVE BEEN ACCRUED TO THE BN GOVERNMENT. But in this case, an individual was alleged to have pocketed the money in return for the granting of the monopolistic franchise – just for a few miserable bucks which reflect the pastoral minds of some !

    THIS IS THE REASON WHY ALL DEMOCRACIES DO NOT DO BUSINESS AND ALL PROJECTS ARE TENDERED OPENLY AND TRANSPARENTLY. No GLCs for them !

    The New and Incorruptible Government should take back all the corrupted franchises once the Court has ruled on the cases and re-tender openly.

    THIS IS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO CONTAIN CORRUPTION WHICH IS NOT TO BE MISSED TUN. Because in future, the bribers would have to think not only once but twice before BRIBING A MINISTER CHEAPLY FOR A MONOPOLY and lose all at the next GE. It is worth considering, Tun ! Maybe the recalcitrant companies are permitted to re-tender too which means MORE MONEY FOR THE GOVERNMENT OPENLY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    The more I think about the Crooked Bridge as labelled by Lee Kuan Yew the more I am convinced that this half built and abandoned New Bridge which was aborted by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government at great expense and at the behest of little Singapore SHOULD BE BUILT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

    NO NATION WORTH ITS SALT CAN LIE DOWN AND BE TREATED LIKE THIS. Like a eunuch !

    A tiny isle telling a Giant to give up the ghost AND BE MADE A LAUGHING STOCK AT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA’S EXPENSE. Like this we look stupid in the eyes of the World.

    NO SELF RESPECTING NATION IN THE WORLD WILL SUBMIT TO SUCH SELF-HUMILIATION IN CONNIVANCE WITH OUTSIDERS. It’s Treason.

    Where else but Malaysia ? And self-admit to the pandering of others that the bridge is wrong when in fact IT IS NOT WRONG BUT CORRECT ? Stupid on all counts.

    Where is the Sovereignty and the National Interest ? In this particular case, the Public Interest in the smooth use of the New Bridge.

    BESIDES, THE ABANDONED REMAINS OF THE HALF-CONSTRUCTED STRUCTURE CANNOT AND WILL NOT AND SHOULD NOT STAND AS A LAUGHING LEGACY OF TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO COME. The Rakyat will not permit.

    It is disgraceful and thoughtless for any true Malaysian to be against a properly designed New Bridge for Public use and not for the use of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who understood the true meaning of SOVEREIGNTY, NATIONAL INTEREST AND PUBLIC INTEREST.

    The crooked design was forced upon Malaysia by Lee Kuan Yew’s intransigence !

    Yes Tun ! No one in the World with any sense and logic can LAUGH AT THE CROOKED BRIDGE LABELLED BY LEE KUAN YEW AS SUCH. Once its up, the Crooked Bridge becomes his 48th Mistake in his Failed Fables and Foibles of Public Policy INSTEAD OF TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD’S ! Who laughs last, laughs best ! No more. No less.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Your Way on the Crooked Bridge as labelled by Lee Kuan Yew is also my Way !

    GDP of indonesia stands at >usd4,000

    GDP of india stands at >usd2,000

    Even china stands at >usd9,000.

    Data macam ini tak boleh tipu punya.

    The only think politicians can do is to pick which gdp they want to show off to sedapkan hati boss mereka masing2 saja.

    Buat jasa kepada negara mesti ada special title?

    Jika macam ini semua pengundi pun layak dapat special title, betul tak?

    Even the richest men and women do not want to be associated to these titles, entah kenapa mereka kena ada special title ini.

    Mereka tak takut orang bawah mereka pakai title ini to cheat ke?

    Dulu dah banyak kes macam ini berlaku, and by looking at the sifat local politicians, all they care is to get titles so easy to get grants minus hard, wise or smart works for self worth development kut.

    Yup, it is disappointing, and sad to realize after more than 60 years of merdeka, they still treat the public money like their family money.

    Tun

    These few mornings were dull and desultory with hardly a whiff of wind in the firmament. But as I am always exceedingly happy and contented like you Tun, I had more on my plate which is the forthcoming weekend when I could snooze a few more hours than weekdays. Such is Life for all of us.

    Sometimes, I wonder why some people grabbed so much money which they have no time or attention to spend properly given their superficial intellect which forbids them from appreciating the finer things in Life which is not cheap diamond trinkets, yachts, jet planes, Manhattan condos and the like.

    If I had that sort of money, I would have purchased Harrods, or buy a stable of race horses and compete in all the important Gold Cup events in the World, from Melbourne to Ascot, or a Rembrandt or a famous hotel in Paris, or buy up the Rolex Group too instead of buying 10,000 Rolex watches and find difficulty in housing them or engage a British Royalty to be my PR person or but the most valuable Islamic artefact in the World or if I have a sweet tooth, Lindt would be on the top of my wish list or Burberry’s which makes expensive handbags as well and the list of high class houses of luxury goods is endless.

    But it is a great shame, Tun, that at the end of the day, those Malaysians with mountains of cash turned out to be quite ordinary and culturally illiterate by buying the run of the mill items or common garden stuff which they thought was high class.

    For example, in the early 1970s, I visited a Singaporean billionaire’s office. I found him and his relatives were pouring over packets and packets of yellow diamonds from a Jewish diamond dealer. My friend said, ‘ Buy some these are cheap.’ Yellow diamonds are the cheapest in the field. I smiled and asked him why he was stocking up on packets of cheap yellow diamonds. His nonchalant reply was that the yellow packets of diamonds were for the wives of Australian politicians in a place where he had business interests. It is a small World, Tun ! It is no fairy tale as one fake Chinese looking type with a fake pseudonym once remarked because the specimen was jealous.

    And what headline for you and me Tun ? Nothing much to talk about as the business of Government and governing get into its NORMAL strides.

    As usual when there are fresh faces, there will be fresh remarks of one kind or another. Remarks which are sometimes at cross-purposes with the main stream Leadership.

    This struck me as the neophytes seemed not to realize that they are no longer in the OPPOSITION. This trait can easily be detected in the hasty rush to speak via the media to state their case. And the following day, they retract what they spoke the previous day without blushing or regret.

    These neophytes are very fond of seeing their photos in the press as could be discerned. Maybe they should spend time to study how their Ministries work and how the office boy stick stamps on envelopes and tracing their organizational chart upwards to their lofty Ministerial heights at the beginning of their tenure before they lose control of everything like the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government.

    It was the free flow of comments on the Crooked Bridge and the Third Bridge which caught my eye.

    Sovereignty, National Interest and Public Interest govern the construction of the New Bridge. No more. No less. It was approved long ago.

    The Third Bridge does not merit any attention at all because it crosses shipping lanes which require expensive tunnels or lift bridges which hamper traffic. Besides, the Third Bridge is located in sparsely populated regions in both East Johor Baru and East Singapore. Economically, it is a NON-STARTER FOR THESE IMPORTANT REASONS. It is not even a moot point.

    You are correct Tun, the New Bridge serves a useful purpose for the general Public. And to counter the ghastly black of the Singapore CIQ Complex, the New Bridge should also be painted black to match its opposite counterpart ! It’s not tit-for-tat. It’s aesthetic design for harmonious purposes and reasons.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun ! Sovereignty and National Interest should be engraved in the hearts of all Malaysians especially those who lead us for NOW and the FUTURE.

  14. mubarakchan Oct 18,2018 10:17 PM

    Tun

    You are absolutely correct when you said that Malaysia does not need Singapore’s consent to build the ‘crooked bridge’.

    It is indeed surprising that some Malaysians are not aware of Sovereignty and National Interest. Maybe they are ignorant on the meaning of these words, Then, it is time to teach the young the true meaning of these words instead of wasting time talking about the colour of uniforms and shoes or bring down the entry standards of our established universities.

    It is so very important that we Malaysians understand these words Sovereignty and National Interest or else we are no country at all. Just a bunch of humanity so to speak. As I mentioned before Nations had fought to the death and refused to surrender when it came to Sovereignty and National Interest for thousands of years.

    Yet amongst us there are some who think our beloved Malaysia is doing something wrong by building a MODERN BRIDGE FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL. It was Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew who always took advantage of our beloved Malaysia to make a mickey out of us and laughed behind our backs.

    HOW MANY MALAYSIANS NOTICED THAT THE SINGAPORE WOODLANDS CIQ COMPLEX WAS SPECIALLY DESIGNED AND PAINTED BLACK FOR FENG SHUI PURPOSES AGAINST THE KARMA WIND FROM OPPOSITE MALAYSIA ?

    How many Malaysians noticed that this Singapore Government structure was deliberately designed and painted black to jar the Malaysian eye when looking at it from the JB side of the Causeway ?

    How many Malaysians know that Lee Kuan Yew was alleged to believe in feng shui to ward off the Devil and was rumoured to have a Buddhist priest in tow for instant consultations until the soothsayer died ?

    These might be little things to some brainwashed Chinese looking specimens with fake names and unspecified and dubious beliefs. But the reality is when the whole panoply of the actions and motives of Lee Kuan Yew are studied as a whole from the beginning to the end, the total added up to more than the sum of the whole.

    And yet, the dull types on this side of the Causeway still lap up the brainwashing propaganda or rubbish which kept on wafting to these shores from that tiny isle.

    THE LATEST IS THAT A TINY ONE STREET TOWN WITH ITS CITIZENS GEARED UP TO THE HILT CANNOT BEAT THE GREAT UNITED STATES IN COMPETITIVENESS !

    From its previous No 1 position, Singapore felled to No 2 behind the great United States, a true leader in World competition. In fact, Singapore should have been ruled out of many surveys because of its tiny size WHICH IS EASY TO DO THINGS. Only 3.2 Million indigenous Singaporeans.

    But the crux of all these shows how adroitly Lee Kuan Yew whilst he was alive use the apparatus of the State to project his apparently superb image into the soft and nubile minds of ignorant Malaysians. He never projected himself as getting into Cambridge University by cheating through the backdoor without taking the Open Examination, did not have the requisite Latin or Greek or was over aged by 4 years which was verboten as an entry requirement.

    OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD NEVER PROJECTED HIMSELF AS BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS AND PASSED HIS EXAMS AT THE FAMOUS KING EDWARD VII MEDICAL COLLEGE SINGAPORE WITH FLYING COLOURS. All graduates of this medical college were solid examples of what were the best in medical education. Many became famous surgeons and physicians by passing important exams in London. Lee Kuan Yew was last in the Bar Finals in London !

    By labelling the modern bridge which design was created because Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew refused to co-operate and called it SNEAKILY AS THE CROOKED BRIDGE FOR EASY BRAINWASHING PURPOSES, Lee Kuan Yew tried to use the court of Malaysian public opinion against the bridge.

    LEE KUAN YEW FORESAW THROUGH HIS SUPERSTITION THAT THE CROOKED BRIDGE IS A COUNTER TO HIS DEVILISH BLACK WOODLANDS CIQ COMPLEX. Once the Crooked Bridge is up, SINGAPORE WILL BE DOWN ACCORDING TO HIS SUPERSITITIOUS BELIEF..

    HENCE, THE FASTER THE CROOKED BRIDGE IS UP THE FASTER SINGAPORE GOES DOWN.

    Therefore logically, Singapore should have co-operated in re-building the Causeway with Malaysia. Lee Kuan Yew again made a mistake.- his 48th !

    BUT LO AND BEHOLD ! OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD CAME UP WITH THE BRILLIANT CROOKED BRIDGE IDEA WHICH COINCIDENTALLY AND BY ACCIDDENT COUNTERS THE BAD KARMA FOR MALAYSIA COMING FROM THE DEVILLISH BLACK WOODLANDS CIQ COMPLEX. For Singapore these days, all bad things come in a rush ! Man proposes. God disposes. The lesson for all of us is that NEVER HARM OR TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OTHERS IF YOU WANT TO SLEEP WELL AT NIGHT.

    For all the reasons in the World, and in the interests of the Rakyat, Sovereignty and National Interest, our beloved Malaysia cannot and will not and should not LEAVE THE CROOKED BRIDGE ABANDONED !

    The sooner the CROOKED BRIDGE IS UP THE BETTER FOR MALAYSIA’S DIGNITY, SELF-RESPECT AND SOVEREIGNTY !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun ! Sovereignty and National Interest should always be our watchwords ! The No.1 lesson in Civics for all school-children since some Malaysians are numb-skulls on this important subject !

    A dull and desultory morning without a whiff of wind at all. My fellow citizens are on the highways and byways again driving to the allotted places of work all over the capital and Selangor – the hub of a dynamic country, Malaysia. There were no headlines galore but the usual conjectures on which culprits would be charged next in Court for their crimes. The only headline of interest to me, thus :-

    ” LUKEWARM SUPPORT FOR THE CROOKED BRIDGE.”

    This headline is not at all surprising given the multitude of the expose of horror mega projects which the MOF could reduce one from
    RM 30 Billion to RM 15 Billion. In factor the contractors should be punished for connivance to cheat the Government. However, crooks are seldom punished in this country.

    And in comparison the Crooked Bridge turns out to be cheap for the simple reason that it facilitates the through passage of people through the Immigration Controls which now hamper the flow because of the lack of space and control booths. So much for the technical details. When the Crooked Bridge is built again, the following points should be considered :-

    1. The Crooked Bridge was approved and launched by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Government.

    2. It is a Sovereign Project in the National Interest.

    3. The Crooked Bridge was the name given by Singapore.

    4. The Project was aborted with compensation by the subsequent BN Government after Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s retirement in 2003.

    5. The Project was aborted by the subsequent BN Government which did the following :-

    i) The Crooked Bridge aborted at a great cost in compensation.

    ii) Malaysia rushed to dance the tango after there was no activity on the Pulau Batu Puteh for decades. And the Rocks were lost in a jiffy. A book was published by the Singaporeans to show how clever they were.

    iii) The 4th Floor Boys were the de facto Government.

    iv) A nobody could grab 1,000,000 barrels of oil from tight fisted Saddam Hussein and ended at the top of the UN Sanctions List which was circulated around the World.

    v) The famished Singaporeans rushed into the wide open doors of the Khazanah and rushed out again with the Avenue, etc at Singapore Big Sale prices.

    vi) A hard core PAP was the Boss Editor of the UMNO NSTP with a lush Apache Sime Darby contract on his lap to make him feel comfortable in the hot and humid Ulus.

    vii) European socialites were welcomed at the Yacht Races in Trengganu

    viii) NS camps were established to suck money out of the Treasury to build camps, make uniforms and boots, transport personal, cater food for all etc.

    ix) Big bucks were quietly retrieved from GLC palm sludge and factory wastes.

    x) There were some fancy moves at Danaharta.

    xi) Floundering MAS was not spared.

    xii) More Government skyscrapers were built in Kuala Lumpur central than in Putrajaya !

    xiii) GLCs were created from ex-Malay owned companies in the name of protecting Malay interests and making money for the Rakyat. A Communistic move which was only adopted by 3 authoritarian States, Singapore, Russia and China. Billions of ringgits were made by the few who were in control and with no ownership !

    xiv) Did the Rakyat benefit from all these BN activities ?

    xv) 2004. The beginning of the fun and games at the Rakyat’s expense which ended on 9 May 2018 when the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government was kicked out.

    AND YET THE SINGAPORE LABELLED ‘ CROOKED BRIDGE ‘ TO BE BUILT TO FACILITATE TRAVEL BETWEEN JOHOR BARU AND SINGAPORE WAS ABORTED WITH A HUGE COMPENSATION IN 2004 ! Sovereignty and National Interest thrown out of the window by those who sworn in front of our Yang Di Pertuan Agong to safeguard them, Tun !

    First I agree that the Crooked Bridge should be built given the right timing and priority.

    Second, it was mentioned somewhere here in this distinguished Blog that Malaysia harasses and bully the tiny red dot. Nothing of the sort ever took place since Merdeka. In fact, it was the other way round !

    This is the BIGGEST LIE EVER AND ITS MISINFORMATION FROM SINGAPORE TO COVER HER LONG LIST OF TAKING ADVANTAGE OF MALAYSIA’S ASSETS FROM 1962 TO THE MALAYSIA KILLER TPPA/CPTPP- 2018. Vide My comments with factual lists in this distinguished Blog.

    Malaysia did nothing which harmed Singapore – 1957 to 2018 !

    Man proposes. God disposes. Despite all the assets which Singapore took from Malaysia, SINGAPORE IS NOW IN A DILEMMA CONCERNING HER FUTURE GROWTH ! Singapore’s GDP could not breach 3% 2002 to 2017 ! With inflation included, there was no GROWTH at all !

    Eventually in the name of Sovereignty, National Interest and Public Interest in the Causeway, the Crooked Bridge will have to be built sooner or later ! It’s cheap compared with the RH 50 Billion – RM 100 Billion BN Projects which are now under review !

    Malaysia Boleh ! Sovereignty and National Interest for our beloved Malaysia always, Tun !

  16. mubarakchan Oct 17,2018 9:59 AM

    Tun

    I love to talk about the subject of Sovereignty and National Interest. Two words which have been formalised in modern terms but actually thousands of wars were based on these two apparently innocuous words since the Jurassic Age.

    Men in skins fought over all sorts of material possessions. And we fast trek down the Ages right to the First World War which was fought by the European Powers over Sovereignty and National Interest. Otherwise, their citizens would not have died for the call to duty by their respective Governments.

    Yet, the First World War did not satisfy the lust for Sovereignty and National Interest through the use of naked and brutal military might. The fires of Nationalism burnt bright in Hitler and those who supported him. In fact the whole German Nation did throughout the Second World War. War films on this episode of German history showed the zeal and fervour the Germans sang their National Anthem even after the disastrous defeat at Stalingrad – the nationalism, the brainwashing by the State !

    After the defeat of Germany, the Allies tried to DE-NAZIFY the Germans. They found it could not be done as every single German was NAZIFIED through NATIONALISM.

    Sometimes I wish our Malaysians have a deeper view of World events past and present in order to understand the importance of Sovereignty and National Interest. Then only we all understand the magnitude of the abuse of Power during 2004 to 2018 by those who do not understand Sovereignty and National Interest. This is called TREASON in all countries of the World.

    Which countries are involved in the battle for Sovereignty and National Interest in the past 100 years ? To name a few and they all die for their countries Sovereignty and National Interest :-

    1. The First World War – 1914-1918
    2. The Spanish Civil War – 1937-1938
    3. The Second World War – 1939-1945
    4. Malaya’s Counter-Insurgency – 1948-1990
    5. India v Pakistan – Kashmir – 1949-2018
    6. Palestine – 1949-2018
    7. Korean War – 1953-1954
    8. Vietnam War – 1962-1975
    9 The Falkland War – 1984
    10. First Iraq War – 1990-1991
    11. Second Iraq War – 2001-2002
    12 Afghanistan War – 2003-2018
    13. Ukraine-Russia Tussle – 2013-2018
    14. South China Sea Conundrum – 2013-2018

    And more military tussles will come in the future in the name of Sovereignty and National Interest.

    From 2004 to 2018, our beloved Malaysia was wide open for ALL TO GRAB HER ASSETS WITHOUT CONSIDERATION OF SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST, THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD TO DO SO. It’s ahameful when a Government is ENGULFED IN ALL SORTS OF MALFEASANCES.

    And unfortunately, only 4 of Malaysia’s Prime Ministers understood the meaning of a Country, a Nation in relation to Sovereignty and National Interest due to their INTELLECT, FAMILY BACKGROUND, EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, VISION AND COMMONSENSE.

    The first was the Tunku who could do the broad strokes to launch a New Nation. The second was the Great Statesman, Tun Abdul Razak, a brilliant thinker and implementer who could sort out the complexities of a young, immature and diverse Nation in crisis, to place it on a launching platform in the name of an even playing field for all. It worked to this day. The third was the solid and tough on the Rule of the Law, Tun Hussein Onn who prepared the pristine platform for our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to push the Nation forward through his dynamism, vision and common sense.

    At this juncture, I would like to point out the importance of COMMONSENSE WHICH IS LINKED TO A PERSON’S INTELLECT. A person can only be born with it. Common sense cannot be acquired !

    Also, it pays to be reminded that the 4 Great Prime Ministers could govern from the apex of the proverbial and virtual pyramid of Power by ensuring that goodies were always flowing down to us the proletariat at the bottom or base.

    BUT BETWEEN 2004 TO 2018, THE GOODIES WERE SEEN TO DEFY GRAVITY BY FLOWING UP TO THE APEX OF POWER LEAVING NOTHING TO FLOW DOWN THE DRY SLOPES OF THE POWER PYRAMID. All the Rakyat were frustrated and in silent anger, and at one go, voted en masse for CHANGE on 9 May 2018.

    IT IS APPARENT THAT A PERSON WHO DO NOT HAVE THE ATTRIBUTES OF THE 4 GREAT PRIME MINISTERS TO RULE OVER MALAYSIA AND HER RAKYAT, WILL BE A NON-STARTER AND A FAILURE.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Together, our beloved Malaysia will go places under your Leadership of the New and Incorruptible Government. IT IS BETTER LATE THAN NEVER ! As the saying goes,’ Our goose was nearly cooked ‘ by the Corrupt and the Uncaring BN Government which adherents still argue they had done the right thing. It is good we have FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR ALL OUR CITIZENS, TUN ! No problem !

  17. mubarakchan Oct 17,2018 6:39 AM

    Tun

    Good Morning to you ! A quiet morning with no drizzle of rain or a whiff of wind in the environment. People as usual are going to work dutifully as always as it has become a habit. Through the years here in this distinguished Blog I noticed there is a lack of awareness of the important presence of the words ‘SOVEREIGNTY’ and ‘ NATIONAL INTEREST.’ No one seems to be aware what these words mean to our DEMOCRACY, FREEDOM AND GOOD GOVERNANCE of our beloved Malaysia.

    The Chinese definitely do not care about SOVEREIGNTY and NATIONAL INTEREST.

    Maybe it is because of the communal stance of their Malaysian Politics which they could not move on to a higher plane of NATIONALIST POLITICS. Hence, the political motives of certain political leaders in the 1960s have made the Chinese pay the price of being manipulated by those who are wily but not smart.

    From 2004 to 2018, our beloved Malaysia really paid the price when the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and the elites fell for the weakness of the flesh and the soft under-belly due to all sorts of temptations coming from many directions.

    Little do they know that a country, like a family and ultimately like a person is always under threat if there is something to be taken advantaged by the outsiders. Hence, I kept on repeating the many instances of our beloved Malaysia taken for a ride by tiny Singapore using the same ancient tactics of old eg. wine, women and song.

    Where else but Malaysia ?

    In my life, I have never heard anything more absurd as recorded of a parasitical in political and money terms, of a tiny country eating off the largesse of another country many times bigger than itself. This is the most unique event in the history of the World !

    Flatteries like abang adek or 5 eyes or private retreats or very hot relationships and Presto ! All the treasures of beloved Malaysia are for the taking by this tiny isle.

    Of course, Tun, we were not born yesterday. But there are many who do not know whether they are coming or going but only focussed on material things. BUT THESE ARE IMPORTANT LEADERS OF THE LAND WITH DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE RAKYAT THEY WERE ELECTED TO RULE !

    HOW MANY MALAYSIANS ARE AWARE THAT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS BEEN UNDER THE MICROSCOPE OF MANY COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD ? Our prominent personalities, their fables and foibles etc are recorded and studied and filed away for future use.

    Singapore was the first to record the behaviour, sexual peccadilloes, wealth etc of our present and possible important personalities. The ISEAS was specially established in 1972 where young and ambitious UMNO types were invited to speak at a forum and the following day, a glowing report on their performance would appear in the Straits Times. Vide. Straits Times Library. Some of them were involved in the TPPA/CPTPP and fortunately Man proposes. God disposes. The satrap failed.

    Nomura Institute Tokyo was established before INSEAS 1972. One of its function is to study the Chinese of South East Asia. To discover who are pro-Japaness or anti-Japanese. Before a young Japanese executive travels to these places, he spent time studying the Chinese inhabitants living in the country to which he was posted to. So cautious are the Japanese.

    These two instances of nationalistic approach in the interest of Singapore’s and Japan’s SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTERESTS stretch far beyond the shores of these countries. For a proper and normal Sovereign State, this is the way to go about it.

    Yet on 9 May 2018, our beloved Malaysia and her political leadership in the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government were not aware of Malaysia’s SOVEREIGNTY and NATIONAL INTEREST since 2004. A remarkable state of affairs on any count.

    If those had our SOVEREIGNTY and NATIONAL INTEREST IN MIND THE CROOKED BRIDGE WOULD NOT HAVD BEEN SCRAPPED WHEN THEY ASSUMED POWER IN 2004 !

    Therefore, the losses in terms of everything which Malaysia lost during 2004 to 2018 were IMMEASURABLE. A Report stated that One Trillion ringgits flowed out between 2003 to 2010. But it must be much more than this.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Again the CROOKED BRIDGE is far more viable, commercially attuned and Rakyat friendly than to spend RM 50 to 100 Billion building the HSR which runs 99% on Malaysian soil and ferries 99% of the high class passengers to Singapore and the Rakyat left out. One cannot be more stupid than this.

    Singapore spends pea-nuts on the HSR which her costs could be recovered via the lease,not sale of land around the HSR station. HSR IS FREE FOR SINGAPORE.

    The Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government undertook to acquire land and build the huge infra-structures in support of the HSR on Malaysian soil for billions of ringgits of BORROWED MONEY. What a stupid act !

    II IS TIME OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA REGAINS ITS SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST WHICH WERE GIVEN AWAY BETWEEN 2004 TO 2018 !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Without our Sovereignty and National Interest we can never become a Nation !

    If the news that the CROOKED BRIDGE IS AGAIN ON THE TABLE, is not fake, I give this Project my full support in the interest of Sovereignty and National Interest.

    Also, outsiders must be taught a lesson that bribery and corruption applied on the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government must not be permitted to get away in broad daylight whether it is tango for two or the TPPA/CPTPP because these tantamount to TREASON !

    Our beloved Malaysia must have pride and be proud of ourselves and not sell ourselves ALL THE TIME TO OUTSIDERS AS SHOWN BY THE WEAK LEADERS.

    With your New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat have our dignity, pride and self-respect again.

    xii) Even the palm oil sludge and factory wastes amounting to millions of ringgits ended up in someone’s pocket to this day from 2003 to 2018 !

    Tun

    For those who think I am long-winded, I beg them not to read my following chronology of horrible events after your retirement in October 2003. But as the brilliant lady lawyer from Singapore once told me that the news today will be forgotten tomorrow. So it pays to be repetitive on important matters which affect all our livelihood, Tun !

    1. 2004 -2009. i) A pukka upper class yachting event in Trengganu
    ii) Sime Darby sponsored 9 years of New Zealand Ocean
    Racing.
    iii) Khazanah was wide-opened for famished Singaporeans
    to feast on low hanging fruits one of which was
    called the Avenue..
    iv) The 4th Floor Boys were the de facto Government of
    the Day. Horror of all horrors.
    v) A nobody could grab 1,000,000 barrels of oil from
    tough Saddam Hussein and ended up at the top of the
    UN Sanctions List published around the World.
    vi) A hard-core PAP cadre became the Boss Editor of the
    UMNO owned NSTP with a lush Apache Sime Darby on
    his lap to ease the rigors of the hot and humid Ulus
    v) The Government RUSHED to dance the tango immediately
    after Tun’s retirement. As a result, our beloved
    Malaysia lost the Rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh. So easy
    vi) Most times the Government was travelling as though
    there would be no tomorrow. Jet lag types were seen
    snoozing in the Dewan Rakyat, not Dewan Rumah.
    vii) Even the floundering MAS was not left in peace.
    viii) What we know we know. What we don’t know we don’t
    know.
    ix) NS was cooked up for some to do some home cooking
    via camp catering, uniforms, transport, construction
    contracts etc at the expense of the young children
    even though the school teachers were doing an
    excellent job promoting peace and harmony.
    x) Companies once belonged to Malays were now called
    GLCs. Those between 2004 to 2006 made good, very
    good. The early bird catches the worm !
    xi) My Suit against the Trustees of my Father’s Estate
    taken out in 2002 was dealt as follows :-

    2003. The Judge ruled it was a Singapore Probate
    even though the Probate was emblazoned by
    the Supreme Court of Malaya 1949. He retired.
    2004-6 The next Judge sat on it for 3 years and was
    promoted to the highest Court in the Land.
    2006 The following lady Judge told me to settle
    with the Trustee who refused to show the
    books for over 10 years ! She did nothing
    2007 This lady Judge said the same as the previous
    2008 This lady judge said the Case was too wide
    and asked me to narrow it down within 7 days
    7 days later, she dismissed my case and
    said she was transferred to Shah Alam which
    she must have known 7 days before. Later she
    was promoted to the highest Court in the land
    2009 The Judge told the Defendant, he was ready
    for the Trial if he does not agree to a
    Consent Order. The Defendant admitted defeat
    after 8 years of delaying tactics using
    bribery and corruption via a famous British
    established legal firm which is only in name.
    xii) The Minister of (for) Tourism not only toured
    Southern Antipodes where sheep and kangaroos
    outnumber the inhabitants with her family but
    also using the Rakyat’s money to sponsor at
    great expense a Malaysian Orchid exhibit at
    the upper-class Royal Chelsea Flower Show
    London to promote tourism for London. Her
    Majesty the Queen awarded the exhibit with a
    Gold Medal which rightly belongs to the
    Rakyat, not to the Minister.

    2010-2018 i) 1MDB will not be mentioned because it is so famous.
    ii) This period is the GREATEST CHURNER OF MULTI-BILLION
    DEALS WHICH OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA HAS NEVER SEEN
    BEFORE.
    iii) My young son’s savings in a bank of RM 78 was
    requisitioned on the pretext of his IC not up-dated
    He had this savings account for 40 years. This shows
    the Government coffers were completely EMPTY.
    iv) Only fiefdoms gave out MONEY to the fiefs in ancient
    times.
    v) The lee Kuan Yew creation to save his Legacy,
    TPPA/CPTPP or Malaysia Killer was signed by/with
    those responsible completely in Lee Kuan Yew’s
    pocket. If the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government
    had won on 9 May 2018, Malaysia would have
    seamlessly become a Slave Colony of tiny Singapore
    which would control the BN Leadership through wiles
    and China provides the MONEY from the purchase of
    Malaysia’s land and assets. Malaysia properly caught
    between the Devil and the deep blue Sea or between a
    Rock and a hard place ! No Sovereignty and National
    Interest remembered at all !
    vi) The KTM with huge assets of 25 miles of rail-track
    and steel rails together with acres of land at
    Woodlands and Tanjong Pagar, ENDED AS HALF AN OFFICE
    BUILDING IN SINGAPORE. A sweetheart deal by any type
    of measurement !

    ALL THE ABOVE-MENTIONED EVENTS HAD NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE 2004 IN THE HISTORY OF OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Tun

    Your original and illuminating discourse on ‘FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY IN ASIA’ strikes a chord in those who love and serve their countries without fear or favour.

    A good indication of the state of the Leadership of the Government of a country is to observe how the Prime Minister smiles.

    I am happy to note that these days since 9 May 2018, you and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah are both smiling every day. This is good because purported scientific studies have pin-pointed that a person who is happy will have less ailments with a good prospect of living out a full life with longevity to boot. With this demeanour, our beloved Malaysia is assured of being led by a happy and smiling Prime Minister who has all problems under his control under the rule of Law and will not behave like a weak tyrant taking advantage of the Rakyat’s trust.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR THE NEW FLOWERING OF OUR NEW MALAYSIA AND DEMOCRACY AS PRACTISED IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA AS WE USED TO KNOW IT UNTL 2004 WHEN A GROUP OF INTERLOPERS TOOK OVER and turned the country upside down.

    We cannot have Democracy when the Rule of the Law is disregarded and weakness of the flesh holds sway. THIS IS BACK TO THE LAWS OF THE JUNGLE.

    You rightly mentioned that we Asians are used to be ruled under Kings, Sultans and Monarchs. In other words, the political development concerning such rule when extrapolated in Western Democracy terms could be place somewhere in the 19th Century when Western countries were reverting to the practice of political governance via the House of Parliamentary style.

    It was fortunate that Malaysia began at the outset a Democracy with a Constitutional Monarch. And we ambled along NORMALLY under the Rule of Law as followed by you, Tun and your distinguished predecessors, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn until after you retired in October 2003. The all hell broke lose in Western terms until 9 May 2018.

    With a beautiful hindsight, most commentators here except for those Chinese looking fakes with fake names, can pin-point to MONEY. But it is more to all this mess than MONEY which no single finger can elucidate the root cause of such absurd and gigantic political upheaval of an otherwise NORMAL, PEACEFUL AND HARMONIOUS NATION which was Malaysia. What are the purported factors then, Tun, we may ask ?

    MONEY, WOMEN, GOLF, TRAVEL, LOW IQ, LOSS OF SPIRITUAL VALUES, GAMBLING, DRINKING, PENT-UP DESIRES FOR 22 YEARS UNDER YOUR NORMAL ADMINISTRATION, PEER PRESSURE,LAZINESS, CORRUPTION BY ABSOLUTE POWER, ETC.

    The only answer to the frailty and broken promises of Humankind is that the disgraceful behaviour from 2004 to 2018 was the result of the SUM OF ALL THAT WHICH BECAME BIGGER THAN THE WHOLE.

    In the end, the whole mess went out of CONTROL AND THE 60 YEAR OLD BN GOVERNMENT WAS HAPLESS AND POWERLESS WITH ALL THE POWER AND MONEY AT THE HANDS OF THE LEADERSHIP.

    Something like the Fall of Rome or the Ching Dynasty.

    Fortunately, the conquerors are not vandals or the fallen Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government got raped as well like the Rape of the Sabine women of ancient Rome. Fortunately, the winners are civilised, do-gooders and with SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST IN THEIR MINDS TO SERVE THE RAKYAT WITHOUT FEAR FAVOUR OR TITLES !

    Finally, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat and Political Leadership under our brilliant and courageous Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad reached the attainable goal which was once thought to be unattainable – to do the impossible by kicking out the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government with its tyrannical ways.

    With the awareness of our SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTEREST WHICH ARE VERY IMPORTANT AND ESSENTIAL IN A DEMOCRACY, our beloved Malaysia and her Rakyat can now go places and upwards to the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan AS ONE OF THE FOUR MOST IMPORTANT SMALL COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD BEING BRITAIN, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN AND MALAYSIA.

    The only WAY for us is Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s WAY WHICH IS UP AND UP TO RUB SHOULDERS WITH THE GREATS. And why did our beloved Malaysia come so far and succeeded IN WESTERN DEMOCRACY TERMS A’LA THE MOTHER OF ALL PARLIAMENTS STYLE ?

    We must NEVER forget the sacrifice, dedication and contribution to the cause of Western Democracy in our beloved Malaysia in the SEPARATION OF THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS IN THE COUNTRY BY THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, TUN HUSSEING ONN, AND TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD DURING HIS 22 YEARS ADMINISTRATION. Their caring attitude which flowed from their sincere and honest hearts for the Rakyat. Finally, their FIRM RECOGNITION THAT MALAYSIA OBSERVED TO THE FULL OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND NATIONAL INTERESTS no matter what TEMPTATIONS WERE OFFERED BY THE DEVILS.

    And proudly I observe that only DEMOCRATIC INDIA AND OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA STOOD THE TEST OF TIME AS PRACTISING DEMOCRACIES SINCE OUR INDEPENDENCE OR MERDEKA in Asia. The rest are either to tiny or took the wrong steps at the beginning of their independence to re-establish a fair and just Democracy again without bloodshed.

    THIS IS THE STORY OF DEMOCRACY IN ASIA IN SUPPORT OF OUR BRILLIANT AND COURAGEOUS TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD’S DISCOURSE !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Keep smiling Tun and Tun Dr Siti Hasmah ! We Malaysians love to see you both smiling which means we are NORMAL IN PEACE AND HARMONY AGAIN !

    Tun

    This Monday morning is one of the finest for this year. The Opening of the Parliament with the full complement of political leaders of the whole Malaysian spectrum.

    The day began rather cool but as usual I am exceedingly happy that our beloved Malaysia is fast settling down to a NORMAL and steadfast stance once again under your Leadership. What more does one want in our country but a good normal life, a job, a family, children, a house and a car in peace and harmony. All under a fair and just Government of the old and the young, the good and the great. The horrors of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government are slowly being unfold. This morning only one headline struck my eye, thus

    1. NST. ‘ Syed Saddiq. ONE IN 10 YOUTHS THOUGHT ABOUT SUICIDE.’

    The Youths are the flower of our Nation. The future Leaders and Makers of the Land without which nothing will grow and progress.

    It is incumbent on all Governments to nurture the Youths as we ourselves have been nurtured by our forebears – a responsibility which is inherent in all of us Humankind. We pass this Torch of responsibility and duty from generation to generation without prompting.

    But the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government had FAILED not only the Youths but all the Rakyat as well by their gross abuse and theft of the wealth of our beloved country.

    We were given NOTHING AND NOW LEFT WITH NOTHING.

    For example, essential laws like the Trustees Act 1949, Company’s Act 1965,and the Bankruptcy Act 1967 were never really revised and brought up-to-date. The Minister of Law, 3 of them did nothing to revise and bring these 3 essential Acts up-to-date as befits a progressive and modern Nation like Malaysia.

    It was alleged the last BN Minister was famous for proposing to turn the RRI Station at Welwyn Garden City, UK into a sports complex at a cost of RM 350 Million to train Malaysian athletes to World standards by flying them to and fro 7,000 miles.

    The same Minister misled nearly 300,000 young bankrupts the majority of them Malays BY NOT REVISING THE BANKRUPTCY ACT BUT ONLY ATTACHED AN AMENDMENT TO IT. IT WAS ALLEGED THIS WAS DONE BECAUSE OF PRESSURE FROM FINANCIAL INTERESTS WHICH DARE NOT DO THIS IN SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA. A weak, a very weak BN Government. Vide. The Star ‘BANKRUPTCY LAW OUTDATED ‘ Page 25. 25 June 2018.

    And the Trustees Act 1949 had never been revised since 1949. This is an important and essential Act for commerce, middle class families, bankers, lawyers, share-brokers, entrepreneurs. Singapore, Hong Kong, Britain and Australia revised the Trustees Act up to the very minute as it is of such great importance. Malaysia had 3 Ministers of Law in the BN Government. They did nothing 2004-2018 – 14 years,

    With the 300,000 young bankrupts, majority Malays, who were neglected and misled by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and the 550,000 mentally disturbed Youths as mentioned by YB Syed Sadduq, our beloved Malaysia has a duty and responsibility to these Youths that they are protected, safeguarded and given a second chance in Life.

    With the shameful pursuit of money by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, all care and consideration to help and benefit our Youths were forgotten. The figures which I presented are the results of such a callous BN Government. It is not only Money Money Money which counts but also OUR HUMAN EQUATION OF JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS FOR ALL IS MORE IMPORTANT.

    The 300,000 young bankrupts, majority Malays and the 550,000 mentally ill youths should not be down-trodden by the powerful and in good health. But the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government was a non-starter from 2004 to 2018

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Tun

    Another quiet Sunday morning in Kuala Lumpur where some parts had a bit of drizzle of rain in the early morning. After DSAI victory in PD, all is quiet and relaxed again. And as for those noteworthy, trustworthy and newsworthy headlines, I had to look high and low to find a couple, thus :-

    1. ‘ DON’T NEED A SNIPER TO KILL ME , LIM QUIPS ON SCRAPPED PLAN TO BULLET-PROOF MOF FOR RM 7 MILLION.’

    2. ‘ PREVIOUS GOVT USED UP 11.4 BN JAN TO APRIL.’

    It is indeed astonishing that the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government went to such great lengths to protect those officials in the MOF which Ministry is the most unlikely to be attacked. Not only that the very idea to spend and waste RM 7 Million instead of spending it on social welfare is most uncaring.

    And I do not think the cost is anything like RM 7 Million. If it is the real armour glass, it costs much more than RM 7 Million ! The offered product cost not more than RM 4 Million. A low ranking official must have thought about this and put himself on the line for some baksheesh too.

    As one UMNO Division chief once told me when I tried to make an appointment for my friend to meet a Minister, why he wanted RM 500,000 for the task with no guarantee of success. He blandly replied that he could see the top was making a lot of money and they would not look after him at the end of the day. Therefore, he has to look after himself now as he munched a club sandwich in a 6-Star hotel. His foresight proved to be correct. But he did not get his absurd request.

    Then, there was this brilliant Muslim Indian boy who returned from London and worked in one of the Government’s hi-tech outfits. His Boss requested him to do the Budget which he estimated to be about RM 5 Million. His Boss instructed him to increase it to RM 10 Million. He was very upset and complained to his father who advised him wisely to do as he was told. Thereafter, the brilliant young man returned to London. Corruption was everywhere under the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government. 2004 to 2018..

    And the FM stated that the BN Government used up RM 11.4 Billion January to April 2018.

    If this is the case and after investigation that money has been spent outside of the Budget without authorization, there is a case for prosecution regarding theft and criminal breach of trust. The whole Government was responsible for this blatant act.

    No one should be exempted because this sort of behaviour is utter disregard of the Rule of Law and Proper Governance by those who were elected by the Rakyat AND THEY SWORE BEFORE THE YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG ON THEIR APPOINTMENT. The Rakyat interests must be safe-guarded and protected in a just and fair manner from abuse and malfeasance committed by those in Power.

    If within a few months so much illegal activities were undertaken by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, one cannot imagine how much theft, damage and abuse of the System took place between 2003 to 2018. It was reported that ONE TRILLION RINGGITS FLOWED OUT BETWEEN 2003 TO 2010. Even a minor Government official could amass RM 2 Billion WITHOUT MUCH EFFORT !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

  25. HBT456 Oct 14,2018 6:43 AM

    Roti canai ke atau capati, mereka tetap indian food.

    Yup, they thought by creating a perfect storm down south, political parties will move up north kut with snap of finger.

    Yup, we are pendatang to them no matter how hard we work, and we could be targeted as the duri dalam daging with their oops lalang, oops cantas.

    The states’ sultan also not worry, who are we the pendatang to worry?

    Therefore dont waste time and effort in hoping that they will accept and respect us as part of malaysia.

    Jika negara ini jadi republican of bangladesh is ok with sibotak and the likes, by all means go ahead.

    But you cannot stop others from being racist when comes to state rights.

    Jika mahu copy, you cannot just copy paste 100% and claim the content is yours, dont you think so?

    Tun

    I have been quiet the past two mornings due to the lack of newsworthy, noteworthy and trustworthy headlines since you departed for Bali.

    The headlines were no headlines at all but conjured up as headlines purported to be uttered by some incorrigible liars in our political spectrum. However, as I skimmed over the papers again to get my money’s worth, the following struck my eye, thus :-

    1. ‘ THE HARAPAN MANIFESTO IS WORTHLESS ‘

    2. ‘ GUAN ENG CLAIMS BN GOVT BLEW BILLIONS MONTHLY IN RUN-UP TO GE 14.’

    3. ‘ TOLL FREE TOLLS NOT POSSIBLE.’

    4. ‘ WE MUST NOT SCORE OUR OWN GOAL’.

    As a long-time bystander on Malaysian Politics, what the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government did in its last gasps in Power was not only unforgivable but treasonous to say the least from 2004 to 2018.

    The wanton disregard for our Sovereignty and the National Interest both of which seemed not only have been forgotten but also thrown out of the window. Those in Power treated the Power as Absolute in belonging to them.

    The Rakyat’s money held in trust in the coffers were for the taking by them and their cronies, even those from the famished State of Singapore who came rushing to the hot and humid Ulus looking for low hanging fruits which they found plenty. From the open vaults of the Khazanah along the Avenue to the 4th Floor Boys down to that hard-core PAP cadre with a lush Apache Sime Darby contract on his lap as he sat as the Boss Editor of the UMNO owned NSTP and on to the ordinary fellow who could grab 1,000,000,000 barrels of oil from the tough Saddam Hussein with Malaysia ending up in a tango for two which resulted in losing the White Rocks of Pulau Batu Puteh. This is what we know which the Rakyat does not know or will never be known until there are further revelations of malfeasances by the highest circles of the Land during that horrible Dark Era 2004 to 2018.

    If not for the stupid fat boy bungles, all the dirt would never be known because the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government would still be in Power after 9 May 2018 with our beloved Malaysia smoothly enslaved as the SLAVE COLONY OF TINY SINGAPORE VIA THE TPPA/CTPP. Man proposes. God disposes !

    There is an ancient saying,’ IT IS LIKE A SNAKE TRYING TO SWALLOW AN ELEPHANT.’

    Like all Manifestos the PH Manifesto was based on the available facts and information as released the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government whilst they were in Power which was in their hands from 2004 to 2018.

    What is the complaint when the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government could not maintain Power even by throwing billions and billions of ringgits as alleged by the FM ?

    This is a good pointer to investigate all the criminal breaches of trust committed by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government and bring all the culprits to be charged in the Court.

    Or else our beloved Malaysia will never be able to expunge this shameful episode from our records. And the crooks get away scot-free as usual ?

    If the FM had stated that our beloved Malaysia had run up a debt of ONE TRILLION RINGGITS by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, where is the money to fund the TOLL FREE TOLLS and the rest of the promises as engendered in the PH Manifesto which promises ARE ENTIRELY BASED ON THE MONEY AVAILABLE AS ASSUMED TO BE LEFT BY THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT ON ITS DEPARTURE ?.

    But sadly, NO MONEY WAS LEFT BY THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT as its secrets were revealed after 9 May 2018.

    For the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government to keep on harping on the non-performance by the PH on its Manifesto is just like putting the cart before the horse. WHERE IS THE MONEY BN GOVERNMENT AS THE FM HAS ALLEGED IT WAS ALL SPENT BEFORE GE 14?

    I for one did not get any money. Nor anyone whom I know got any either. Where has the money gone, BN Government ?

    THE WHOLE OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LOSS OR CRIMINAL BREACH OF TRUST FOR THE MISSING MONEY IF SPENT OUTSDIE OF ANY GOVERNMENT BUDGET WHICH GOVERNS THE LEGALITY OF ALL EXPENDITURES – Because money was spent WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORIZATION. This is NORMAL GOVERNANCE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. Thieves go to jail.

    IT IS HIGH TIME THAT THOSE IN CONTROL OF MONEY DURING THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT REGIME 2004 TO 2018 THAT ALL MONIES MUST BE ACCOUNTED FOR VIA THE BUDGETS, IF NOT IT IS CRIMINAL BREACH OF TRUST AND THEFT.

    To those in the know, do not think anyone is safe from prosecution because all are open to prosecution now and any time in the future.

    THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DAY MUST SHOW ITS PROBITY, ETHICS, STANDARDS, PROPRIETY AND THE RULE OF THE LAWS IF IT SEEKS TO BE RESPECTED BY THE RAKYAT AND THE WORLD.

    A little kitten or Mickey Mouse attitude to CRASS, BRAZEN AND OUTRIGHT THEFTS BY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AT ANY LEVEL, HIGH OR LOW CAN NEVER BE TOLERATED because they are suppose to be the ROLE MODELS OF GOOD BEHAVIOUR, HONESTY, SERVICE, SECURITY AND LEADERS OF A COUNTRY.

    And in our beloved Malaysia, these high and mighty folks are alleged to steal the Rakyat’s money by the Billions of ringgits for years and years, 2004 to 2018 ! What a shame ! It was reported ONE TRILLION RINGGITS flowed out of the country between 2003 to 2010 before 1MDB !

    When this gigantic sum of money flowed out and our Ringgit depreciated, IT IS TANTAMOUNT TO THESE CROOKS ROBBING THE WHOLE POPULATION TO ENRICH THEMSELVES AT THE RAKYAT’S EXPENSE WHICH HAPPENED DAILY 2004 to 2018 ! – Because the cost of living and daily essentials went up and up 2004 to 2018 ! It is as simple as this. A blatant misuse of Power giving rise to TREASON !

    Hence, it is appropriate that our good and beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad warningly said, ‘WE MUST NOT SCORE OUR OWN GOALS.’

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! We Malaysians should not be so stupid as to score our own goals because to-day’s World is a very small World. Secrets are very difficult to hide as we can see from recent events.

  27. HBT456 Oct 12,2018 4:42 PM

    Even Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Indian activist, who lead indian independence against british rule, and became the president of indian national congress with history of 132 years, and today it has became a very small political party in india.

    His death is said to be assasination on jan 30, 1948 in new delhi, india.

    I guess i can imagine when the movement of indian independence against british rule in its peak, it must have ruined the family wealty of many indian elites connected to british businesses.

    The rest is history.

    To repeat such horrendous movement?

    Yup wealth does not pass through 3 generation, and what comes around will go around.

    We who live in the centre of Malaysia have a responsibility and duty to the rest of the country.

    For example, here in the capital, we have quiet, equable and fine mornings, most mornings of the year. But sometimes, unfortunate weather hits the peripheral parts of our sprawling country in unexpected ways, like the under-expected storms and flooding in the North and other places. This is where our centre must be strong and steadfast to bear the vicissitudes of our unfortunate fellow citizens with help and succour. This is a duty which all Malaysians are obliged to help and assist.

    Even though, we cruise safely to work or deliver our children to schools in a calm and windless morning, I reflected on the fortunate streams of school-children trooping quietly and orderly towards their class-rooms every morning.

    I also reflected that racism never appeared in the minds of the young until either their parents or peer pressure put this evil thought in them.

    I believe I was saved from this influence due to certain unexpected circumstances which affected my teenage years and escaped from being influenced by my parents or peers on racism. Hence to this day, every person looks the same to me. Besides, my profession forbids such extraneous thoughts or else I become ineffective and cannot deliver.

    Such are the factors which affect any person’s Life with its ups and downs. I always believe in avoiding problems and move on. But there are some who would take up the cudgels and challenge the wind. This is well-illustrated by the ONE AND ONLY HEADLINE WHICH CAUGHT MY EYE THIS MORNING, thus :-

    1. Malay Mail. ‘ STORM OVER MRT2. ‘ I did not see any storm anywhere except in Florida, USA which is now threaten by the Hurricane Michael.

    2. Financial Daily. ‘ IS RM 2B a bridge too far ?’ This does not say anything really.

    For those who are in the know, these headlines refer to the same subject matter being the cancellation of the underground work project which was once signed by the BN Government with the contractors in question. This is the basis of the contractors furore.

    But to add to the above scanty information which seemed to catch the eye and explained nothing, it struck me that IT IS ODD FOR A PRIVATE ENTITY TO CHALLENGE THE WISDOM OF THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT ON THE ONE HAND AND TRY TO MAKE A DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT TO BEND TO ITS WISHES WHICH HAVE NO SUBSTANCE, ON THE OTHER.

    To quote the famous words of our distinguished Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tun Ismail Mohd. Ali who was famous for his integrity and ethics, ” IT STINKS.”

    For the now disconnected Group making just a big fuss, this not only draw the attention of the World onto their purported plight but also raised MANY QUESTIONS AS TO WHY THEY MADE SUCH A BIG FUSS NOT ABOUT THEIR IMMEDIATE FINANCIAL MATERIAL LOSS BUT THE LOSS ONLY CONCERNING THEIR PURPORTED 20,000 EMPLOYEES.

    These folks even raised certain ominous questions to FRIGHTEN THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT AS LED BY TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD AND HIS TEAM by citing possible legal suits all round.

    I like to remind all and sundry that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his Team were not born yesterday. They already know the hidden reasons behind the FAKE STORM IN THE MEDIA RAISED BY THE INEXPERIENCED RECALCITRANTS. I can guess why. Malaysia is a small in the World of Construction and Engineering. OK ?

    As far as we know about engineering and construction, 1 + 1 must be 2 ! The professional answer. No engineer passes his or her exams by giving 1 + 1 = 4. Which is the ‘open book approach’ as proposed. It’s that simple.

    HOWEVER, THE INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS ENGAGED BY THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT HAS REPORTED THAT THERE WAS RM 4.19 Billion which could be saved from the Contract. But the contractors still insist ON ‘OPEN BOOK APPROACH’. This is an impossible approach which is NON-PROFESSIONAL AND CASTS A CLOUD OVER THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT IF ACCEPTED.

    Either the suggestion was made without thought or IT IS A TRAP TO CATCH THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT WITH ITS PANTS DOWN SO EARLY IN ITS ADMINISTRATION OR THERE IS A BIG HOLE SOMEWHERE IN THE KINGDOM WHICH NEEDS TO BE FILLED SOMEHOW, SOMETIME ! In our beloved Malaysia, nothing is unexpected. But our Prime Minister and his Team knows BEST to deal with this OPEN DEMAND VIA THE MRDIA FOR BILLIONS OF RINGGITS OF THE RAKYAT’S HARD-EARNED MONEY !

    Wow ! The Consultants worked out for this portion of the rail-works,that there is AN OVER-CHARGE OF RM 4.19 BILLIONS. The Contractors are willing to let go of a huge RM 2 BILLIONS ! TO WHERE WILL THE RM 2.19 BILLION GO or gone if there is no hiccups ? Strange to say this is my RM 64,000 question.

    And by how much did the completed portion was over-charged to the BN Government ?

    An ancient saying, ‘ A big tree catches the wind.’

    In my career I have done most legal and big businesses in Malaysia. But I never wanted to do property development and construction because of its anti-social quirks which I rather kept away. No headaches like this.

    I give YB TONY PUA, POLITICAL SECRETARY TO THE MINISTER OF FINANCE FULL SUPPORT AND FULL MARKS FOR EXPLAINING LOGICALLY AND CLEARLY WHY THE GOVERNMENT TOOK A STAND ON THIS ISSUE. If it does not, no one will respect it anymore.

    THEREFORE FOR THE NEW AND INCORRUPTIBLE GOVERNMENT NOT TO ACCEPT THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF ITS OWN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS AND BEND DOWN TO THE ‘OPEN BOOK APPRACH’ PROPOSED BY THE CONTRACTORS STINKS OF SOMETHING FISHY WHICH WILL ENSNARL THE PH GOVERNMENT FOR THE REST OF ITS TENURE. And also in engineering 1 + 1 = 2, NOT 4. Hence in Engineering, the phrase ‘ OPEN BOOK APPROACH ‘ or ‘ TRADE SECRETS ‘ is UNPROFEESIONAL AND DOES NOT STAND TO SCRUTINY IN ANY COURT.

    As we Malaysians say.’ Where got trade secrets in Engineering ?’

    Kudos again to YB Tony Pua for stating the OBVIOUS IN HIS LETTER AS PUBLISHED IN THE FINANCIAL DAILY TODAY.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! The suggested ‘Open Book Approach’ is a TRAP because the independent consultants have already stated that there is a RM 4.19 BILLION extra cost which could be REMOVED ! Even one Ringgit payment is CORRUPTION as the World sees this today !

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    In the light of the new national car project, I would recommend that it should be an electric or hybrid car.

    1. The purpose of having a car in Malaysia is no more about going from one place to another, nevertheless it is a personalised means of transport.

    2. In the near or not so near future, people will still want their own set of transportation. Thus the demand still there. But somehow the technology need to be updated quickly.

    3. It is also important for us to acknowledge the depleting source of oil and the climate change challenges ahead.

    4. Thus I recommend;
    a. A target for the country to achieve at-least 50% of the cars on road are hybrid or full electric (or sustainable energy) as we are going for the SDG.
    b. 3rd Malaysian/Asian car must be clean and intelligent car.
    c. To spur industry of retrofitting old good car with electric engine. This should reduce the numbers of going to be scrapped cars and itself is a new industry no one endeavour in mass scale before.

    Thanks Tun.

    Best regards,
    fbm

    Tun

    It is a good feeling for me when I am in your distinguished Blog. The feeling of amongst good friends who are not FAKES with bad brains hiding cowardly behind FAKE NAMES like those who only look like Chinese !

    Every morning I am as happy as Punch as the saying goes after successfully ferried my grand-daughter to her Sekolah Kebangsaan. I have always supported and put my children to the Sekolah Kebangsaan unlike some who found that their children could not take the Vernacular Schools and had to transfer them mid-way to the Sekolah Kebangsaan. What happened to those who could not and had to stay behind in the Vernacular Schools. Or just to learn Mandarin or be good at Maths ? I found anyone can speak any language given the time and the inclination. No big deal. And as for Msths., this is no problem either given the same motives. It is all in the genes or a child is a slow developer. At the end of the day, we should by on an even playing field by age 21 !
    After digressing on my happy thoughts, suddenly a gush of headlines poured forth from the venerable Malay Mail. Headlines which are trustworthy, noteworthy and newsworthy to make them interesting, thus :-

    The Malay Mail.

    1. ‘ NEW TAXES TO PAY DEBTS ‘ The Mother of all Headlines this wonderful morning. We pays and pays for the corruption by crooks in HIGH PLACES !

    2. ‘ LIM; GOVT NOT MEANT TO BE IN BUSINESS.’ The very first positive and sound statement. Kudos to Mr Lim.

    Ah Mr Lim has finally struck the right note! The NUB or CRUX or EXCUSE OF THE CORRUPT AND UNCARING BN GOVERNMENT WHICH USED THE GLCs AS A SLOGAN TO PROTECT MALAY INTERESTS AND MAKE MONEY FOR THE RAKYAT.

    In reality, the GLCs were used to make money for those who own no shares or they are not Civil Servants by playing 19 hole golf in Perth, Yunnan, Bangkok etc, casinos, sky-high salaries, expensive cars and restaurants, First Class travel, Board Meetings in London, overseas schools for the kids, palm oil sludge, factory wastes, fake Boteros & Picassos etc.

    This orgy at the Rakyat’s expense WENT ON FOR 14 YEARS 2004 TO 2018 ! It was utterly MAD and CRAZY !

    If not for the stupid fat boy bungle, no one would have realised the HUGE QUIET RAPE OF THE RAKYAT’S MONEY VIA THE GOVERNMENT’S COFFERS – worse than the Rape of the Sabine women of ancient Rome – because we all trusted Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his distinguished predecessors, the Tunku, Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn from 1957 to 2003.

    Little did we realise their successors had NO INTEREST IN THE WELFARE AND CARE OF THE RAKYAT AT HEART ! Fortunately, after the DARK ERA 2004 TO 2018, we have a NEW DAWN NOW AWAKENING !

    A Democratic Government has no business to do business in the Private Sector, none whatsoever. A Democratic Government is to rule and serve the Rakyat by putting up the right infrastructures etc for them to earn a living and make money for the Government to tax which money is used for the Rakyat’s benefits social welfare, infrastructures etc.

    People in high places should not COLLECT 10,000 ROLEX etc or CASH.

    The GLCs were a creation of Lee Kuan Yew by accident and born out of necessity for Singapore’s survival.

    It happened this way. After the 1966 Separation, Dr Albert Winsemius the Dutch UN Economics expert employed by the Singapore Government since 1962, advised the establishment of the Jurong Industrial Park, reclamation etc. At first, the Singapore Government encouraged the traders to become industrialists by founding Starlite Ceramics, Fair Lady Hair Wigs, Eupoc, Far East Levingston, Singapore Textiles (HK), Diaward Industries (HK), Regent Hair Wigs etc. All employed Malay employees. Most failed because of branding problems and Singapore’s tiny market. With a crisis on his hands, Lee Kuan Yew turned to monopolistic government owned activities like SIA, Asian Dollar, DBS, Keppel, Sembawang, NOL, Chartered, UIC, Intraco etc to keep Singapore’s employment rate and revenues afloat.

    He coined GLCs for these profitable Government linked corporations in the 1980s.

    BUT THE REALITY WAS THAT THE WHOLE SATRAP WAS HELD UP BY THE HUGE REVENUE GENERATED BY THE UNDER-COUNTER BLACK TRADES IN ARMS (hard & soft) TRADING, SMUGGLING, SANCTIONS BREAKING ( China, Myanmar, N, Kores, Libya, Iran), TOADYING UP TO DICTATORS, R & R, US AID & PAYMENT FOR BUNKERING OF MILITARY SERVICES, COLLECTING FREE VIETNAM WAR DEBRIS,MONEY LAUNDERING ETC.

    These constitute the LEE KUAN YEW MIRACLE not the often touted glittering buildings and the highway and byways of modern Singapore, the Changi Airport, reclamation, etc which rightly were the IDEAS OF DR WINSEMIUS. To explain by FAKE INFORMATION, lee Kuan Yew deliberately mis-represented what ALL CAN SEE AS HIS MIRACLE AND NOT THAT HUGE UNDER-COUNTER BLACK TRADES AS MENTIONED ABOVE !

    Commonsense tells us why a tiny isle with no human and natural resources resources was not lauded by the Western World for their wonderful achievement ( the smart people are actually in Malaysia ) FOR MAKING SO MUCH MONEY TO JUMP FROM 3RD CLASS TO 1ST CLASS WITH A SIZEABLE MILTIARY TO BOOT ?

    It does not make any sense to me. THIS IS NOW PROVEN TO BE THE CASE WITH THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE BLACK TRADES AFTER THE BRICS MUSCLED IN AFTER THE END OF THE COLD WAR 1990 onwards. This confirmed that Singapore’s GDP never breached 3% 2002 to 2017. This means the deficit of 2-3 % was due ENTIRELY TO THE BLACK TRADES OF LEE KUAN YEW – his Miracle ! No matter how hard Singapore tried with Malaysia Killer TPPA/CPTPP, tourists, casinos, importation of FTs, all manner of hi-tech or bio-tech industries etc, THE REVENUES FOR SINGAPORE CANNOT BE COMPARED WITH THE HUGE PROFITS FROM THE PEOPLE KILLER THE BLACK TRADES OF THE COLD WAR BENEFITTING SINGAPORE 1948-1989 ! This is a fact. It does not make sense for Singapore to make so much money over our beloved Malaysia which has everything including BRAINS. Now it is all very transparent. Man proposes. God disposes. Or according to Balzac,’ Behind every great fortune, a great crime !’

    Soon, Singapore will run out of its fat reserves if the elites still cannot produce the requisite white rabbits out of the proverbial hat FOR SUSATAINABILITY AND SURVIVAL. The writing is on the wall !

    Finally, no Democratic country does business to make money for the people. Singapore could control the GLCs in a tiny place with Lee Kuan Yew’s close monitoring of bank accounts and sexual peccadilloes. Russia and China thought GLCs are a half-way house between Capitalism and Communism. Later RAMPANT CORRUPTION AND NEPOTISM ERUPTED IN THEIR VAST LANDS which lasted to this day.

    MALAYSIA’S LEADERSHIP FROM 2004 TO 2018 ADOPTED GLCs TO MAKE MONEY FOR THEMSELVES AT THE EXPENSE OF THE RAKYAT – a total waste of the Rakyat’s TIME AND MONEY.

    The whole Nation was held back in terms OF EVERYTHING CONCERNING WELFARE, DEVELOPMENT AND GENERAL PROGRESS WHICH BROUGHT OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA TO HER KNEES. What a shame !

    Just 2 examples out of hundreds or thousands.

    Khazanah invested RM 80 Million in an Israeli bra, undies and lingerie business to make the future comfortable for 500,000,000 Indian ladies which was lost in a jiffy !

    Khazanah invested RM 2 Billion in UBS just to carry Lee Kuan Yew’s legs because Singapore has a substantial interest. This RM 2 Billion was lost in a jiffy.

    Where is the money for the Rakyat’s welfare today with such corrupt and uncaring BN Leadership ? No wonder the Singaporeans respect them who bought respect with the Rakyat’s money !

    3. ‘ GDP TO REMAIN ON GROWTH PATH INTO 2019.’ Malaysia is fortunate to have the PH Government led by our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in place at the right time. Or else, the Malaysians become the slaves of the Slave Colony of Singapore via the TPPA/CPTTA and end up dressed in rags !

    Yes ! The GDP is out-dated in its measurement of the distribution of wealth amongst the populace. Tiny states like Singapore could not be measured accurately in terms of the bottom-most citizens when its Government looks to the sky always. Huge nations like China could not apply the GDP effectively because it is the Policy of the country to look after the poor and too much employment is difficult due to over-crowding in the urban places. China has to modify the GDP to her own needs.

    Malaysia will do well to focus on reducing on our unemployment especially our graduates. This I believe could be achieved in 3 years time or earlier.

    4. ‘ RENEGOTIATED LAND DEALS RAKE IN RM 149m FOR CITY HALL.’ In one instance, so much money is recovered. But this has been going on since 2004 under the rule of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government. City Hall’s corruption is legend since the 1960s. Some ex-officers could afford houses in Bukit Tunku on retirement !

    5. ‘ 11 COPS LINKED TO PROTECTION RING NABBED.’ If the PDRM personal are well-looked after like free housing, allowances for families etc, why should they be crooks if their LEADERSHIP sets an example of caring for them ?

    6. ‘ 20,000 STUDENTS STRANDED AS SKILLS FUND SHRINKS ‘. This is bad, very bad. This is the result of RECKLESS CORRUPTION AT THE VERY TOP WHERE THE LEADERSHIP DOES NOT CARE BUT ONLY PAID LIP-SERVICE TO MAINTAIN POWER.

    It is very bad to take it out on hapless children who depends on the Government for their livelihood and survival. Another instance of the loss of our famous traditional Malaysian caring for others who are disadvantaged. Instead, the collection of 10,000 Rolex watches and cash is more important !

    7. ‘ MALAYSIA TRUMPS S’PORE IN TACKLING INEQUALITY.’ This is self-explanatory.

    Malaysia beats Singapore in everything except for their high-pressure cooker Education System which is UNDESIRABLE FOR MALAYSIA. We want to avoid suicides by young people and mental breakdowns with concomitant inferiority complexes and ivory tower types which are useless in an emerging nation. We must deal with such problems in our unique caring and humane manner. No brutal or rough stuff for us, Malaysians.

    We have more geniuses in Malaysia than Singapore which has NONE.

    Or else, Singapore would not be in such a DILEMMA today. Man proposes. God disposes.

    Just yesterday, it was reported that Starhub will sack 200 workers. My relative an ex-banking executive is still a Grab taxi-driver.

    Yesterday, Singapore’s Foreign Minister exhorted his countrymen to respect our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. First, he is just stating the obvious. Our Tun passed his exams in the King Edward V11 Medical School, Singapore with flying colours. Acheh !. Second, our Tun and Malaysia did nothing wrong with Singapore. BUT FROM 1962 TO 2018, SINGAPORE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MALAYSIA AT EVERY TURN, FROM WATER TO SHARES TO PAP CADRE AS BOSS OF UMNO NSTP TO ROCKS TO MALAYSIA KILLER LIKE THE TPPA/CPTPP. Who else but SINGAPORE ?

    The list of instances where Singapore screwed Malaysia is endless so to speak – AND BOTH ARE SOVEREIGN COUNTRIES TOO ! Of course, our Tun should be respected not only by all Singaporeans but all the World too. As a qualified Doctor, he does not TALK NONSENSE without facts.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! I reckon we will be a Malaysian Tiger again by 2020. Thanks to you and your Team. We nearly became a kitten or Micky Mouse for Life or a Slave Colony of Singapore !

    Tun

    We Malaysians are really spoilt people.

    We wake up early in the morning, prepare ourselves either for work or to ferry our children to the schools. And each morning without fail, we are greeted by a pleasant, cool and bright morning with sunshine. Only sometimes, and I stress, only sometimes are we met with a slight drizzle of fine rain. There has never been a heavy downpour early in the mornings unlike the monsoon season in India where it rains non-stop, literally dogs and cats day and night.

    Yes, Tun ! We Malaysians are spoilt to the core by the warm and equable weather with no major disasters like typhoons, earthquakes or tsunamis. And yet our beloved Malaysia was nearly destroyed by our own hands. – the hands which were elected into the highest office in the land !

    I always think back to the close shave which our beloved Malaysia had up to 9 May 2018. AND THE SACRIFICES OF YOUR ILLUSTRIOUS PREDECESSORS THE TUNKU, TUN ABDUL RAZAK AND TUN HUSSEIN ONN.

    It was all 99% hard work by those who decided to unite and line up behind your brilliant and courageous leadership to bring back not only the notion but in practical terms how our beloved Malaysia should be govern on an even keel, fair and just, and without the outrageous corruption and uncaring attitude as perceived by all and sundry.

    And as a result of the collapse of the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government, every headline in this morning’s newspapers concerns the mess left by them. This morning, it took me sometime to come across a headline which is meaningful and has wisdom. Only one, thus

    NSTP.’ DR M : DON’T DWELL ON THE PAST.’

    Yes, Tun ! We Malaysians have to be reminded all the time that our very existence in this wonderful land did come at a cost. A cost which has to be borne by all and sundry that without being constantly aware of how Malaysia came into being after so many centuries of living together in peace and harmony, all our wonderful mornings could just go up in thick smoke in a jiffy ! In the 1980s, the brilliant lady lawyer in Singapore told me that in our country, the news today will be forgotten tomorrow !

    Your call for all to unite and not base our actions on our lingering thoughts of the past is indeed logical and binding for all of us the Rakyat to unite behind your lEADERSHIP of the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great – A WAKE UP CALL.

    Without the Unity for progress and with the penchant to dwell on the past, we the Rakyat and our beloved Malaysia cannot progress on any terms, politically or socio-economically.

    The 9 May 2018 GE have been decided by the Rakyat on who should now lead the Nation and clean up the corrupt mess or Augean Stables. And it is the incumbent Government of the day, the PH which all and sundry should unite and support and not dwell on the past, as you succinctly stated, Tun.

    As one Tan Sri once told me, ‘TODAY IS TODAY. YESTERDAY WAS YESTERDAY.’

    With a clean slate, the New and Incorruptible Government can focus on the Policies which are focussed on serving the Rakyat needs for now and the future especially with the new locus standi that Malaysia is now one of 4 most important small countries of the World being Britain, Switzerland, Japan and Malaysia. And under your wise and experienced Leadership Tun, Malaysia and her Rakyat will go places – upwards towards the likes of Visionary Switzerland, Democratic India and Good Governance Japan.

    We just need a successful National Car Project to finish our New Malaysian tapestry with your iconic signature to sign off.

    We will be up there with the Greats. Not forgetting that there are billions and billions of ringgits of ill-gotten gains to be retrieved overseas from the crooks since 2004 which will take some time. Better late than never Tun ! One Trillion ringgits were reported to have flowed overseas between 2003 to 2010 before 1MDB !

    THE PH GOVERNMENT BY TAKING ACTION EVERY DAY TO RETRIEVE THE BILLIONS OF RINGGITS FROM THE CROOKS OVERSEAS, CORRUPTION IS HELD AT BAY OR REDUCED BY REMINDING THE PROSPECTIVE CROOKS AND THE WORLD THAT MALAYSIA HAS ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CORRUPTION. Let the probes and so on be a daily occurrence to stop or reduce this cancer once and for all. A sen spent on this preventive action will save Malaysia and her Rakyat billions of ringgits in future with no headaches !

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! Retrieve the billions of ringgits home Tun ! Why let this money benefit other countries which do not need it ?

    Good evening Tun

    My ex partner dalam unit trust keturunan Cina agama Christian. I sebut ex sini sebab beliau passed away 2 years ago.

    He was a very nice kind man. I tidak ada masaalah denganya. Balik rumah pun dia sering sebut my name, sampai hari ini anak2 dia ingat I.

    I ingat masa mula2 dia recruit ramai agent Melayu, dia rajin juga argue soal agama dengan agent beragama Islam yang lain. Jadi debat besar. Dengan I taklah sebab dia tau I simple, your religion is your religion, my religion is my religion, we are here to do business, so be it.

    Tapi lama lepas itu dia puji pula agent Melayu, dia kata nak kapal terbang pun sempat sembahyang dulu. 5 waktu sehari sembahyang sedangkan orang kristian tidak.

    Jangan salah faham, dia tak pernah tukar agama, dia meninggal dalam agama yang dianuti. Malah semasa hidup dia rajin derma income yang dia dapat pada sebuah church kecil yang diikutinya. Dia pernah bercita cita nak jadi pastor.

    I rasa soal agama, ada baik hanya penganut yang boleh kritik, agama lain baiklah jangan bercakap cakap lebih.

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Mohon izin Tun:

    Saya ingatkan Dr. Mujahid ada kelulusan dalam bidang Undang-Undang Syariah, tapi sangkaan saya meleset.

    Pendidikan Dr. Mujahid Yusof, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri (Agama):

    1) Doktor Falsafah (PhD) Siyasah Syariah (Sains Politik), UM
    2) Sarjana (MA) Pembangunan Sumber Manusia, UPM
    3) BA Bahasa Arab & Sastera, Al Azhar, Mesir

    Maksudnya dia bukan pakar dalam bidang Undang-undang dan Perundangan Syariah. Ish..Ish..Ish…

    Latar belakang pengajian saya bukan dalam bidang Sastera. Maaf cakap, kalau setakat ketiga-tiga ijazah yang Dr. Mujahid ada, kacang saja untuk lulus… 🙂 🙂 🙂 Cuma hafal dan buat penyelidikan sikit-sikit…Persoalannya, adakah hasil penyelidikan beliau menjadi rujukan para penyelidik di peringkat global? Apa sumbangannya kepada dunia? Atau setakat di Malaysia saja ia dirujuk?

    Lihatlah betapa sombongnya kenyataan Dr. Mujahid
    ( http://www.sinarharian.com.my/nasional/mujahid-kesal-sikap-agamawan-1.888999 )

    /// “Yang cakap di media sosial saya tak hairan, bukan tahap kita nak bincang dengan mereka tapi ada yang cakap tahap agamawannya yang dihormati masyarakat. Paling tidak ambillah satu sikap, biar minta penjelasan daripada menteri dulu.

    “Kalaulah kita hormat dia… kalau kita tak hormat dia memang dari awal lagi tanya saja belasahlah,” katanya di Persidangan Meja Bulat: Falsafah dan Tatacara Hukuman Jenayah Syariah Dalam Mencapai Matlamat Rahmatan lil Alamin, di sini, hari ini.///

    Ewah…bukan tahap dia untuk berbincang dengan orang di media sosial? Apa dia ingat tahap pengajian dan kedudukan dia hebat sangatkah? Memang angkuh dia ni…Silap2 haribulan tersungkur di PRU akan datang. Dalam negara yang mengamalkan demokrasi, jangan angkuh sangat.

  39. SSLEE Oct 8,2018 2:26 PM

    Dear PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,
    Please allow me to repost an article I posted in i3investor:
    https://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/Sslee_blog/177025.jsp
    Reproduce as below with some editing:

    I was advised by my senior that the best way to understand Scriptures is not in the literal interpretation but read it with an open minded and interpret the many mythologies with reference to the history of mankind. Below is his interpretation on: The Story of Adam and Eve(original sin)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_and_Eve
    Original Versus Interpretation: Doing what comes naturally https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teavjYI9pdM
    For almost the whole of human history, from at least 2 million years ago, mankind has lived by doing what comes naturally, a nomadic life of hunter-gatherer where mankind move around from place to place over the seasons and year following the food trail. Men were hunter (Hunting animal and fish) in a small group and women were gatherer and caretaker of child (Gathering edible items of any kind from fruits/nuts/seeds to insects). Life in a nomadic society wasn’t bad as they were in many ways much healthier, stronger and happier as they hunt-gathered just enough of their foods and share all their food together since food cannot be stored. They enjoy hunting, feasting, spending their leisure time with family, caring for each other, tools making, cave paintings etc and live a life of peace, tranquility and social equality as everyone were hunter-gatherer (Equality in work and society).(Garden of Eden)
    Things only come to a change a mere 10,000 year ago where women (Eve) after many years of gathering edible of any kind from fruits/nuts/seeds and insects and for her desire/want to settle down in more stable and secure life (Serpent) experimented and discovered that edible fruits/nuts/seeds can be cultivated and animals can be domesticated (tree of the knowledge of good and evil) persuaded Men (Adam) to become farmer.(The forbidden fruit)
    From land cultivation and livestock faming, food can now be stored and thus allowed accumulation of wealth (original sin) a new sinful/evil and an inequality world was opened up to mankind in growing of wealth and safeguarding of wealth. (Greed/craving, cling/attachment, fear/insecurity, envy/resentment, distrust/anger, hate/prejudice, worship/sacrifice, divine/god, landlord/capitalist, slave/labor, trader/marketer, craftsman/artisan, thief/robber, we/us, they/them, tribes/nations, kingdoms/empires, leaders/tyrants, murderers/conquerors and etc)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFIa3FNnFZM

    The Garden of Eden (hunter-gatherer) is now gone and lost forever. What we inherited is the current world with many social ills cause by human own doing of wealth creation and accumulation. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-richest-1-people-in-the-world-are-on-track-to-control-two-thirds-of-wealth-by-2030-2018-04-10
    The reality check, if we humankind still continues on the current wrong track of wealth creation and accumulation but lacking in compassion, love, altruism, wealth sharing and place great emphasis on worship instead of sacrifice/good deeds then by 2030 the richest 1% will own two-thirds of global wealth.

    Mahatma Gandhi listed the seven social ills of modern society as:
    1. Politics without principles.
    2. Wealth without work.
    3. Pleasure without conscience.
    4. Knowledge without character.
    5. Commerce without morality.
    6. Science without humanity.
    7. Worship without sacrifice.

    https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Mother_Teresa
    I can only wish if only there is less worship and more sacrifice/good deeds as epitomes’ by Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta devoted/sacrificed her whole life caring for the sick, the homeless and the poorest of the poor in the slum of Calcutta.
    I cited her quote below to reflect her thought of humaneness, love, selflessness, devotion, compassion, empathy, sacrifice, suffering, pain, loss, darkness, hopelessness, despair, dead and question the absent of god’s mercy.
    • I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper’s wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?
    • Don’t look for big things, just do small things with great love….The smaller the thing, the greater must be our love.
    • If I ever become a Saint — I surely be one of “darkness”. I will continually be absent from Heaven — to light the light of those in darkness on earth.
    • One day I met a lady who was dying of cancer in a most terrible condition. And I told her, I say, “You know, this terrible pain is only the kiss of Jesus — a sign that you have come so close to Jesus on the cross that he can kiss you.” And she joined her hands together and said, “Mother Teresa, please tell Jesus to stop kissing me”
    • They say people in hell suffer eternal pain because of the loss of God – they would go through all that suffering if they had just a little hope of possessing God. In my soul I feel just that terrible pain of loss, of God not wanting me, of God not being God, of God not really existing (Jesus, please forgive my blasphemies, I have been told to write everything). That darkness that surrounds me on all sides. I can’t lift my soul to God – no light or inspiration enters my soul. I speak of love for souls, of tender love for God, words pass through my words [sic, lips], and I long with a deep longing to believe in them! What do I labour for? If there be no God—there can be no soul.—If there is no soul then Jesus—You also are not true… Jesus don’t let my soul be deceived—nor let me deceive anyone. In the call You said that I would have to suffer much.—Ten years—my Jesus, You have done to me according to Your will—and Jesus hear my prayer—if this pleases You—if my pain and suffering—my darkness and separation gives You a drop of consolation—my own Jesus, do with me as You wish—as long as You wish, without a single glance at my feelings and pain… I beg of You only one thing—please do not take the trouble to return soon.—I am ready to wait for You for all eternity.

    Worship/Faith without Sacrifice/Good Deeds is worthless. If everyone practiced their faiths by good deeds (Love God thus Loves everyone and sharing their wealth) and not just words/worships then for sure we can recreate THE NEW GARDEN OF EDEN on planet Earth.

    The world will be a much better place if we build wealth and at the same time give and share wealth. I wish more and more major shareholder of listed company in Bursa will emulate kind hearted Tan Sri Teh Hong Piow, founder of Public Bank in building and readily sharing the wealth of Public Bank with all the employees and shareholders with generous bonus/dividend and good capital gain. He is loved, respected and praise by the entire employees/shareholders. He is the shining example, the epitome of what all for one and one for all really mean.
    https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/highlight/2018/05/03/6000-gather-to-thank-teh-hong-piow-for-piloting-public-bank-to-success/

    May god be merciful to all and bless all.

    Thank you.
    Yours truly,
    SS Lee
    PS: What can we do to practice good deeds as well as good thoughts? What sacrifices are you willing to make to help others? Are we making a true sacrifice by telling others how hard we worked and that they can be what we are if they only try? Should we simply tell others to pull themselves up by their boot straps? Are all people really created equal in the sense that everyone has an equal chance at health, resource, education, work, government and happiness? Can we help make it so by sharing what we have with others?

    Tun,

    Assalamualaikum. This is not related to the topic above. But I ‘m going to put it down here anyway. Tun, I really respect and have full confidence in your administration. I think and many of us too that you are the main reason why PH managed to win the recent election. I think you have chosen your cabinets well and I believe we need to give ample time for the cabinets ministers to learn and adapt and put forward their ideas to make this country as the Tiger of Asia again. I understand that such task is difficult because you have inherited a ‘very sick’ government that was infected by deadly disease from top to bottom. But again I stress that I have full confidence in you and your ministers especially Dr Mujahid and Dr Maslee to take up the challenge. I am comfortable with Datin Seri Azizah and I was pleasantly surprise by her performance as the Deputy Prime Minister. But I never had any confidence in her husband as a leader and I think he is out of touch and no longer relevant to the people. He’s a populist and he has proven that he was not a great leader. I sincerely hope and pray that he will not win the PD election. It is so unfortunate that Rafizi could have come forward with this idea despite being a brainer. Dia dan DS Anwar cuma pengacau sahaja. I don’t even mind that Isa would win so that DS could not be in the government.

    Semoga Allah SWT panjangkan umur Tun berdua dan memberkati usia Tun berdua. Terima kasih yang tak terhingga kepada Tun berdua kerana masih sanggup menanggung beban yang amat berat ini. Hanya Allah SWT sahaja yang dapat membalasnya. Semoga Tun tergolong dalam golongan yang mendapat syafaatNya.

    Bak kata, too many cooks spolied the soup.

    Yup, it is ether they merge and become stronger or adpat to the future to become stronger, it is up to the top decision makers.

    Yup, forced merger can make the economy move backward, and could caused anarchy to the share market and forex.

    We have gone through that for the past few decades, and until bn is out few months back.

    The decision in the hands of the political parties of both divides.

    Boleh means boleh.

    Tak boleh means tak boleh.

    You can never pregnant 9 women to make a baby.

    Some issues just need time.

    Yup, for those who live in glass door should never baling batu.

    Hang bermaksud hamsap, i mean lucah punya writing in macam dulu punya jelita ar?

    Aku pun pernah baca apa si perempuan main dengan kuching kesayanganya during the 90s in their column oleh doctor apanama.

    Macam ini, that was during the 90s, and hiv happened when human main dengan binatang jinak, bukan liar.

    Kenapa?

    Jika binatang liar, mereka pasti akan ditelan binatang ini.

    Dulu, world health organization memang tak tahu kenapa boleh jadi macam ini.

    Rupa2nya, di negara yang amat miskin, mereka memerlukan penternakan untuk bikin daging.

    Imagine, these penternak yang amat miskin dan langsung takda pengetahuan of diseases or jangitan virus, setiap hari bersama binatang ternakan mereka dan apabila takda kerja lain, dan bila nafsu sampai, mereka terus main aja.

    Kini, mereka mana berani nak main kerana ia akan mengundang penyakit muat, betul tak?

    But, porn child memang a crime di negara yang maju, entahlah di negara malaysia ini.

    As for same sex, atau prostitution, mereka sudah mahir in protecting themselves, therefore, it wont create troubles to the health ministry.

    If they still stuck in dulu punya mindset and still want to pass down to their next generation, and masih dillie dellie dan tak mahu eye to eye level talks, yup, voters will abandon them, and thats for sure.

  44. Sri Sense Oct 8,2018 9:50 AM

    Good morning YAB Tun

    Berita sekarang penuh dengan Rafizi menang.

    I nak share my story.

    I sebenarnya buat part time unit trust agent since 1997. I masuk bidang ini sebab nak belajar cara pelaburan yang baik. Since I tak pandai kira2, I jadi recruit pada seorang China accountant.

    Walaupun I ini buat part time tapi merasa jadi runner-up top agency manager peringkat kebangsaan satu masa dulu. Strange kan? Part time tapi boleh dapat anugerah.

    Bagaimana nak build agency? Like insurance agency, sama juga dalam unit trust agency, rely on people, so jawapan sini kena recruit people dan train mereka. Tapi nak jadi agent kena duduk exam, lulus, baru dapat lesen. Tak ada lesen tak boleh jual.

    So ada orang yang baru duduk exam, hari2 tanya bila dapat lesen. Tak tanya lulus ke tak, tapi tanya bila nak dapat lesen. Ada orang tu tak peduli langsung, suruh duduk exam dia buat, lepas tu diam senyap tak tanya apa pun.

    From my experience and my partner experience, orang yang sering tanya bila dapat lesen, bila dapat lesen tak jual. Tapi yang diam tu nanti yang akan buat kerja dan berjaya.

    Moral of the story, yang tak sabar2 nak sesuatu tu selalunya, bila dah dapat, dia relaks je. Dia tak pandang jauh dari dapat lesen atau apa yang dikehendaki.

  45. mubarakchan Oct 8,2018 9:11 AM

    Tun

    A Monday morning is what I always look forward to every week-end. It is nice to have public holidays for most. But too much of it is not conducive to a person attuned to working to achieve something in Life. However, people must realize that it is better to have a job or work to do rather than being unemployed and sitting at home.

    As I ferried my grand-daughter to her Sekolah Kebangsaan, the traffic flowed at a normal speed which demonstrated that people are relaxed and happy in their minds as they headed towards their places of work. A good omen for all and sundry. Another fine and classic Malaysian good morning for you and me Tun. And what about the headlines ? There is only one of note.

    Malay Mail. ‘DAIM PLEDGES TO RESOLVE LOW INCOMES OF FISHERMEN.’

    This important headline jolted my senses and caused me to reflect on the countless of train journeys which I have made in Japan and Switzerland through the beautiful rolling countryside of these wonderful countries. Not only that, as the train rolled out to the countryside, the views of farmlands and the habitat of both the farmers and their keep could be seen in these landscapes of peace and contentment.

    During these trips, I always wondered how advanced industrialised countries like Japan and Switzerland with their highest standards of living in a small land mass could up-keep their farmers and keep them in the countryside.

    Eventually, I realised that the Government had a duty to maintain the farmers due to historical precedents and political reasons being the backbone of the country. And that it is pointless to have all the inhabitants in the towns and the countryside is deserted and devoid of Life, human beings and animals. As a result, I could only conclude that the disadvantaged farmer or fisherman is subsidized by the Government. This is the only way because the stand alone fisherman or farmer will be wiped out in the free market place by just one down turn. And in Malaysia it is desirable to keep the fishermen and farmers out of the clutches of the credits given by the middlemen as far as possible.

    Tun Daim Is c0rrect to emphasise the plight of the fishermen and the farmers.

    A marketing board is no solution. It is better to let free market principles reign in the market place for the fishermen and the farmers, and others.

    BUT LET THE GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZE THE FISHERMEN AND FARMERS MONTHLY WITH CASH.

    The essential needs of a fisherman or farmer are food, education for the children, a roof over their heads, transportation. I feel a marketing board gives rise to red tape and corruption. It is better to subsidize these fishermen and farmers who need cash more than anything else. AND THE SUBSIDIES WILL NOT BE ANYTHING WHICH RUNS INTO BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF RINGGITS LIKE THOSE STOLEN BY THE 1MDB CROOKS AMONGST OTHERS.

    In recent years, I have noticed that Malay itinerant hawkers have discovered the best market places for themselves are in the commercial areas of Bangsar, TTDI and Sri Hartamas. Some of them come from as far away as Pahang.

    Just a few days ago, my wife bought some very good rambutans from a Malay itinerant hawker who came all the way from Pahang. He was selling the rambutans at RM 6 per kilo by weight. Here is an example of an enterprising person who knows how to market given the support which he had in Pahang.

    On the other hand, decades ago, it was alleged that some FELDA settlers were selling the fertilizers given to them to outsiders. Hence, it is better for the Government to subsidize fishermen and farmers with cash instead of equipment which they would sell at a loss eventually or did not maintain. The exception would be a larger piece of equipment like a fishing boat or a harvester under Government supervision through a co-operative.

    All in all, to resolve the low incomes of fishermen as suggested by Tun Daim is a MUST for our beloved Malaysia because all Malaysians should be on the same level playing field under the Sun. Because we care for our fishermen and farmers like Japan and Switzerland, Malaysia stands out as a country which cares for all her citizens and not only those in the towns.

    If Japan and Switzerland have been doing this by assisting the fishermen and farmers, Malaysia can also follow along a similar route or manner.

    I strongly believe that Malaysia has the capability to raise the incomes of fishermen and farmers as pledged by Tun Daim. And the cost to do so is minimal with the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great as led by our Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! We care for the fishermen and farmers like anyone else !

  46. HBT456 Oct 8,2018 8:16 AM

    Yup, malaysia is a blessed country with plenty of oil, henceforth, we dont need nuclear power.

    Even when ktm, ercl and hsr merged, we still need petrol to generate transportation needs which is vialable in any countries with roads and highways.

    It depends how you do it so that it is more rewarding and less damaging to the environment.

    But sadly and unfortunately, it is still about my way, your way after more than 6 decades of merdeka.

    To those in power, they are more interested to rich themselve first via qe method just to increase the muslim population through back door.

    They are not only being unfair to their own race, they are being unfair to other races as well.

    This is malaysia, and malaysia is part of south east asia region.

    This is a political fact that no one can deny.

    It is either we adapt, or we will be left behind.

  47. musato Oct 8,2018 8:02 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya banyak kali baca tentang Mujahid kata wartawan silap faham berkenaan kenyataan beliau.

    Berkenaan isu nafsu ini biasanya saya tak bagi terus link kat sini, bukan apa, takut menda yang tak elok tu saya tanggung dosanya sekali kalau tersebar.

    Lagipun kat sini ramai lapisan yang membaca.

    Rasa saya Tun hanya google search yang biasa biasa saje.

    Cuba Tun google search ‘Melayu Tumblr’ dan scroll ke bawah cari video video dan tekan play.

    Kemudian Mujahid boleh kata wartawan silap faham kenyataan beliau.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Akhirnya umno tertumpang after 6 decades in power.

  49. HBT456 Oct 8,2018 7:41 AM

    Yup, when the law is changed from jaga jiwa dan hati muslim to jaga jiwa dan hati melayu, it will make them more confused, aimless and directionless.

    When the law is changed just to make favor someone, or a political party, then, the non muslim and non malay will have the choice not to merge with them.

    They are already slow and behind in the past.

    With the slogan of keranamu malaysia, they are even slower and more behind because of hak istimewa.

    When the slogan changed to gemilang, cermerlang and terbilang, they became more slower, more biadap and more sombong.

    Then the slogan of 1 malaysia is born, and akhirnya umno.

    Unless, they really think nasi lemak and roti canai can build the tallest building in south east asia region by demoralizing other races.

    Unless, they really believe keris gergasi with kek pulut can build the strongest islamic hub in south east asia region by demoralizing other races.

    It is up to both of the political divides to decide who have the biggest bite of the kek pulut.

    Ps: look at ktm and their service, you will how good efficient they are, tak gitu sibotak?

    Assalamualaikum wmwbt Tun.

    Cuma nak tanya, apa masih perlukah sekolah2 asrama penuh seperti SDAR, STAR, MCKK, Tun Fatimah, Kursiah dll wujud sebagai sekolah “jantina tunggal”. Cuba pakat tengok kesan saikologi dan egoisma mereka keluaran sekolah2 “jantina tunggal” ini berbanding yg bersifat “pelbagai jantina”.

    (2) Mungkin para professional ahli saikologi pendidikan dan kemasyarakatan boleh mula berbincang tentang hal ini. Cuma singkirkan soal sentimen dan nostagia. Lihat kpd kepentingan Melayu dan Negara dari sydut Islamnya.

    Jaga diri Tun. Semoga Kerajaan dapat merobah cepat aoa yg BN tidak perbuat dgn baik.

  51. asahamat Oct 8,2018 3:37 AM

    Assalamualaikum wmwbt Tun.

    Nampaknya, banyak perkara yg Menteri2 PH buat atau kata yg ada pihak tengok tak berapa betul dan boleh dijadikan “polimik” tak sihat.

    (2) Saya rasa elok Kjaan sekarang tengok cara @ kaedah PR yg Kjaan gunakan esp RTM. Saya tak nampak RTM telah berubah, dari meneruskan budaya “polimik @ politicking” kpd budaya penyampaian maklumat @ pendidikan berkesan. Mungkin profrssionalisma para pendokong RTM telah jumud @ sedang menghadapi masalah kewangan @ kedua-duanya.

    (3) Contoh dlm isu2 yg boleh mengundang polimik, elok guna RTM utk dijadikan media “academic discourse” dari para Menteri buru2 buat kenyataan. Biar ahli2 yg pakar dalam bidang tsb berbahas dan Menteri taklah perlu ke depan dlm semua hal.

    (4) Saya nampak, kebanyakan masalah polimik di negara ini ialah bila orang politik selalu “gelojoh” hendak ke depan n tidak menggunakan mereka yg professional utk ke depan. Penyakit lama, orang politik serba semua tahu masih terlalu menjalar dalam Governance Kjaan kita. Wajar para ahli politik kini mulai mengamalkan “biar jauhari juga mengenal maniksm”. Menteri biarlah lebih menumpu soal2 dasar dan prinsip. Biarlah soal operasi @ pentadbiran itu menjadi hal jentera kerajaan.

    Jaga diri Tun. Semoga Kjaan focus utk buat kerja dari timbulkan “polimik”.

    To ordinary prc nationals, they dont like usa because they perceived usa wants to force and smoke china to go into war with them.

    If usa president trump really wants to force them into war, they too had no choice, and will go for it.

    Thats politics.

    In diplomacy, to china, when negotiation failed, then, culture or bullet exchange pun takda masalah.

    This is call show hands what.

    Only americans can play, you think prc nationals dont know how to play?

    Jika mahu main politik, kena main dengan cara yang betul.

    Jika tidak, kedua2 negara besar ini pasti akan dijadikan bahan untuk media menulis.

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    Negarawan Paling Senior Di Atas Planet kata orang Amerika Syarikat

    Bercakap Dari Hati Yang Ikhlas Tanpa Rasa Gentar Atau Berat Sebelah

    Sewaktu ayahanda Tun di AS banyak pihak di sana mahu dengar pandangan ayahanda Tun tentang kebangkitan negara China dari sudut ekonomi global sementara AS cuba menyekat China dengan Trump mengisytiharkan perang dagang ke atasnya.

    Tertarik dengan pandangan sinis, bernas dan bersahaja dari ayahanda Tun yang mengatakan negara kita telah lama menjalinkan hubungan dagang dengan negara China sejak beribu tahun lamanya dan tidaklah sampai ia menakluki kita.

    Lain pula ceritanya dengan negara Eropah (Portugis) yang mula menjalinkan hubungan dagang pada tahun 1509 tetapi dua tahun kemudian kita pula dijajah.

    Bukankah kita perlu takut dengan Barat terutamanya AS lebih dari China kerana AS yang risau dengan kekukuhan ekonomi China hari ini dan juga risau apabila China yang miskin beberapa dekad yang lalu.

    AS tahu Najib pula pro AS sehingga skandal 1MDB dibongkarkan DOJ dan Jho Low sengaja mengalihkan kiblat ke China untuk selamatkan dirinya dan Najib.

    Selama ini kita boleh bangunkan negara tanpa pinjaman China dari syarikat China, material dari China dengan pekerja2 dari China dan duit tidak pernah mengalir masuk ke Malaysia tetapi sentiasa mengalir keluar.

    Ayahanda Tun dari dahulu suka guna acuan sendiri untuk pulihkan ekonomi dan tidak pernah berkiblatkan barat atau AS atau IMF dan atas asas ini risau bebenor memikirkan sdr ABI yang pro-Barat dan AS itu 🙁 .

    Sekian.

    p/s : Benarlah kata ayahanda Tun baru2 ini bahawasanya orang2 tua ini kadangkala digalakkan bertikam lidah untuk memastikan otak mereka sentiasa cergas dengan membaca dan menulis tetapi kalau boleh jangan terlampau sensitif sehingga semuanya dianggap fitnah 🙂 .

    Good evening Tun

    I ada baca berita yang Mujahid sebut editor putar belit apa beliau cakap.

    Setau I kes2 begini usually sebab jiran report. Government department tidak akan datang kalau tidak ada report. Mereka takan ketuk pintu rumah orang tanpa report. Kalau nak bersedudukkan ada baiknya jangan duduk area orang Melayu. 🙂

    I tak tau the system now, sebab most kawasan urban dan suburban dah ada guard house. Kalau nak masuk kena tunjuk IC. Kalau kata nak pergi rumah nombor ini, chances are the guard akan contact owner dulu, sebelum yang nak masuk dapat masuk.

    Mungkin mudah di luar bandar but I don’t think that easy if tinggal di bandar besar.

    Back in the late 80s, I pernah tinggal kat Ampang, a double storey terrace house. 3 bilik di atas 3 lelaki tinggal. I ambil bilik bawah sebab I perempuan.

    I have no problem dengan penyewa bilik lain, but the problem datang from a girl yang boyfriend nya tinggal di bilik atas. Dia sering datang tinggal di bilik boyfriend, though the boyfriend macam tak layan dia dengan baik. Dia tetap suka tinggal situ.

    So satu malam pencegah maksiat datang, intai kat tingkap bilik I. Apa mereka nampak? I yang baru nak tukar baju. Ofcourse I jerit. To cut the story short the girl pada malam itu kebetulan tak tidur situ.

    Anyway bila abang ipar girl ini dapat tau, the next time the girl datang situ, dia kena pukul, sampai arial radio I patah. Puncanya the girl lari masuk bilik I. Abang ipar kejar. Bila kena bantai radio I pun kena. Dah Datok dah abang ipar dia sekarang, celebrity, tak payah sebut nama.

    Satelah kena pukul teruk tak serik datang lagi. I pun malas nak layan, I pindah rumah. I heard she and her boyfriend got married, dan cerai lepas tu. Did not know how long the marriage last.

  59. Hajar Oct 7,2018 2:09 PM

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. Dalam Sistem Demokrasi, para pengundi @ warganegara berhak untuk mengkritik pemimpin2 Kerajaan yang memerintah (asal tidak keterlaluan / memfitnah). Jadi, saya sebagai warganegara Malaysia berhak mengkritik apa saja tindakan2 dan keputusan2 Kerajaan PH yang pada pandangan saya ternampak tidak betul.

    2. Kritikan2 saya memang berkaitan isu2 yang melibatkan rakyat (dan saya), dan bukannya saya mengkritik / mengutuk / mengejek penampilan, fizikal atau usia seseorang seperti yang sesetengah ‘bloggers’ gemar lakukan (kesian betul…dah tak ada modal lain…). Ada warga tua yang menyertai blog Chedet setelah ‘pencen’ membuat andaian ‘bijak’ lah kononnya bahawa orang yang menyertai blog Tun semenjak 2008 ialah orang pencen (dan wajar diperlekeh otak dan dihina fizikalnya…ini satu kebodohan melampau..). Setahu saya pengunjung2 blog Tun ada juga di kalangan pelajar sekolah dan Universiti.

    3. Izinkan saya Tun untuk ulas isu berikut:

    Tiada lagi operasi khalwat waktu malam – Dr Mujahid

    /// KUALA LUMPUR: Tiada lagi ketukan pintu di waktu tengah malam oleh pihak berkuasa agama yang menyiasat laporan khalwat atau salah laku lain.

    Sebaliknya, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa menegaskan bahawa apa yang dilakukan oleh orang Islam di belakang pintu tertutup bukanlah urusan pihak kerajaan.

    “Katakan anda melakukan sesuatu dalam ruang peribadi anda, saya tidak akan campur tangan. ///

    http://www.mstar.com.my/berita/berita-semasa/2018/10/06/khalwat-bukan-urusan-kerajaan/

    Astaghfirullah…Baru sahaja menjadi Menteri, Dr. Mujahid sudah menunjukkan betapa liberal dan dangkalnya pemikiran beliau yang tidak selari dengan ajaran Islam yang sebenar.

    Dalam erti kata lain, sekarang ini di Malaysia (kalau ikut kenyataan Dr. Mujahid), pasangan yang beragama Islam boleh bebas BERSEKEDUDUKAN (tinggal serumah tanpa ikatan perkahwinan), dan tanpa rasa takut atau bimbang untuk melakukan maksiat asalkan dilakukan di “belakang pintu tertutup”.

    Ish..Ish..Ish…Pasangan Islam yang buat maksiat di “belakang pintu pejabat/ hotel/ pondok/ kenderaan, khemah, etc.” yang tertutup (asal ada pintu) pun bolehlah agaknya. Entahlah.

    Umat Islam memang wajar (wajib) menegur dalam hal kemungkaran. Kadang-kala, bila jiran menegur (kemungkaran), pasangan yang ditegur buat dek saja (tak makan saman). Sebab itu perlakuan2 sumbang akhirnya dilaporkan kepada pihak berwajib (tidak mahu bersubahat). Kita tidak mahu perlakuan sumbang/maksiat khalwat (bersekedudukan) menjadi budaya kita. Kadang-kala, kita terpaksa mendedahkan aib seseorang untuk mencegah perkara2 mungkar dari terus berleluasa.

    Bercakap dan membuat keputusan secara terburu-buru tanpa berfikir panjang sudah jadi ‘trademark’ ahli2 Kabinet PH. Amat menyedihkan.

    Maaf Tun, saya terkilan bila baca kenyataan Tun berkenaan hal yang amat penting dan sensitif ini.

    Astaghfirullah…

    Terima kasih Tun.

    – Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa merahmati Tun sekeluarga –

  61. mubarakchan Oct 7,2018 8:45 AM

    Tun

    Many people must have asked you about the secret of your wonderful health. A secret which made you outlasted other persons more than half your age. As I commented early on your evergreen physical activity in support of your evergreen political activity, it was ‘ A QUALIFIED DOCTOR’S SECRET !’

    You were quoted in the media with two versions of the same coinage which makes your tongue in the cheek remark all the more amusing to most which are your supporters and un-amusing to the naysayers of the moment. Why at the moment ?

    You have not only seen it all. But also how some have ingratiated themselves with you from nay to yea for their usual benefits. And this is the best joke for you of a Lifetime. How yea-sayers become nay-sayers, or nay-sayers become yea-sayers appearing in stark colours without shame in our Malaysian Political Spectrum. That’s Humankind for you and me, Tun. The word gratefulness is missing in some vocabulary. Your quotes of the day :-

    1. ‘My quarrel with Najib kept my brain active in old age.’

    2. ‘My quarrel with Najib kept my brain sharp.’

    How many of us may have the privilege of quarrelling with the ex-Prime Minister, Tun ? None is the answer.

    So it is good that you kept all of us in the dark as to how to keep ourselves in a tip-top condition right up to 100 and beyond.

    It is good also that your remark gave a jolt to the young generation who are still wet behind the ears that they will NEVER DIE ! I have a list of 65 names which showed they do die young. The youngest was 39 !

    With the realization of a person’s sensitivity, I never ask another person how old they are or what they do for a living. But I have such questions constantly thrust upon me by younger people at the first opportunity. I always smiled and said nothing.

    As a qualified doctor you would agree with me that our brains are not only our most valuable asset to advance or do ourselves in during Life as recent events in our beloved Malaysia have shown us. The functions of the brain to this day have still not fully reveal its secrets governing vital functions in our bodies.

    We know important hormones are secreted to facilitate the functions normally from its cells both in the grey and white matter. The reason for this knowledge barrier is simply that we cannot experiment with a human being’s brains. And as you rightly said the best we can do is to keep the juice (hormone) flowing normally by being active.

    This has proved effective and correct in your case. We see many become aged at 40 and many at 50 onwards. Sometimes, we pin this down to our genes. But nothing more. No one really knows why some age faster than others. So we can only do what is best under our own control which you have stipulated, Tun !

    With a simple understanding of the brain, we can map out the course of our health and longevity accordingly.

    From my own experience and that of others, I found our brains performed best between 18 to 30 years. It is reported that geniuses produced their best works during this age. From 30 to 50, our mental faculties are on a gentle downward slope together with our physical activities. This is the moment when all of us think we are Supermen ! A steeper mental and physical downward gentle spiral occurred from 50 to 72. At this point, the loss of mental abilities and physical attributes take a sharper down turn. There is no escaping this route by anyone.

    But for those like you Tun who knew how to keep the brain healthy and strong, the functions of the brain still could be maintained at a high level comparatively.

    Like you Tun, who can maintain a highly level of discipline,commonsense sobriety, frugality in our every day living and in our diet and think of goodness all the time ?

    No smoking. No gambling, no drinking, No over-eating. No late nights etc In the main, a normal human being would have thought nothing of it. Hence, the doctors knowing the frailty of Humankind always without fail advise their patients that they can do everything but do not abuse the privilege. Practice what they preach as it is said.

    And finally, who would know how to keep oneself fit and healthy from age 21 onwards ? Not many. Only the doctors.

    A good example is the articles produced by you here Tun and those incoherent driblets by HBT456. The difference between a good brain and a bad one is the QUALITY OF ITS LIFE ! No more. No less.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! I will be buying a RED National Car in 2020 ! That’s what my brain told me yesterday, Tun !

    Siapa nak jadi PM ?
    Apa tujuan Niat anda sebenar ?
    Ini ukuran nya disamping kebijaksanaan , amanah , berakhlak , berani kerana benar ,berani mengatakan tidak ,berani membuat perubahan dan pelbagai lagi

    Adakah ciri ini kita lihat ada pada Anuar yg kita lihat ada pada Tun Mahathir
    Apakah niat Anuar sebenar ?

    Tun berjanji pada Anuar
    Kami rakyat Malaysia tidak berjanji pada sesiapa

    Jika benar niat Anuar Tulin dan Ikhlas
    Maka Malaysia akan menentukan

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    ANWAR 789 —-> TPM ke 13..?

    MANJANYA ANWAR..

    Langkah bijak politik dari ayahanda Tun apabila memilih untuk turun ke padang membantu bekas TPM ke 7 yang menghadapi pertandingan 7 penjuru di PRK PD.

    Walaupun mengikut fakta sewaktu ayahanda Tun menjadi Pengerusi BN beberapa dekad lalu tidak pernah pula turun berkempen untuk mana2 PRK.

    Inilah kes Anwar minta dimanjakan terlebih pulak, sudahlah diampunkan begitu sahaja sekarang mahu didokong pula bekas TPM ke 7 ini ke laluan PM ke 8 di negeri 9..

    Sekian.

    p/s :
    Bisa MP tapi PM belum bisa.

    Peringatan : TPM ke 13 sila abaikan.

    Dont feel bad for this mca since you have done your best to bring malaysia to where we are today.

    Yup, we are alawys pendatang to them eventhough we have been in here for few generations.

    Therefore, jangan pandang, jangan marah mahupun hasut.

    In terms of numbers, we have already loose out.

    Therefore, dont waste time in begging here and there to maintain the chinese language.

    Jika mereka mahu bagi, then be grateful.

    Jika mereka tak mahu bagi, we can always learn ourselves.

    Why?

    Being a chinese who cant write their names in han language, it means a shame as chinese.

  65. Hajar Oct 6,2018 2:57 PM

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    1. Bagi golongan yang betul2 faham erti Demokrasi, mereka bukan jenis yang suka buat kacau/ merusuh, atau sikit2 mahu tunjuk perasaan di khalayak umum jika tidak puas hati dengan apa saja isu.

    2. Rakyat yang matang dan boleh berfikir secara logik sedar dan tahu bahawa Kerajaan (Malaysia) boleh ditukar secara aman damai melalui Pilihanraya Umum (PRU). Undi kita amat berharga.

    3. Pada pendapat saya, Tun berjaya menerapkan banyak nilai2 murni di jiwa rakyat jelata semasa Tun menjadi PM ke-4 selama lebih 22 tahun. Salah satu nilai murni tersebut ialah agar rakyat tidak sesuka hati berdemo secara haram dan menyusahkan orang lain, kerana setiap kali ada demonstrasi jalanan, banyak orang yang tidak berdosa mengalami kerugian (jalan sesak, bisnes terganggu, etc). Kerosakan harta awam turut merugikan Kerajaan. (Tetapi Tun pula telah pernah berdemo 🙁 .. nasib baik didikan baik Tun masih dipegang oleh majoriti rakyat.)

    4. Kerana kejayaan Tun mendidik majoriti rakyat Malaysia untuk menghargai keamanan yang kita ada, peralihan kuasa selepas PRU14 berjalan dengan baik, dan pihak yang kalah tidak melakukan huru-hara. Bodohlah orang yang menafikan hakikat bahawa kesedaran majoriti rakyat (termasuk pihak yang kalah) tentang pentingnya menerima kekalahan dengan hati terbuka banyak menyumbang kepada peralihan kuasa secara aman.

    5. Tentang PRK PD, saya harap Tun fikir kembali (batalkan saja) tentang rancangan Tun untuk turun berkempen di PD bagi menyatakan sokongan kepada Anwar Ibrahim. Tun tidak perlu terlibat dengan PRK PD yang dari segi moral memang tidak patut berlaku.

    6. Lagi satu, antara bekas PM Najib dan Anwar, kita tidak boleh jangka siapa yang lebih teruk (sebagai PM). Pada pemerhatian saya, DSAI akan jadi PM yang lebih teruk (dari DSN). Kita lihat sahaja nanti (jika Allah izinkan DSAI menjadi PM). Mungkin ada hikmahnya jika DSAI menjadi PM supaya apa yang digembar-gemburkan tentang kehebatan beliau boleh beliau buktikan (tong kosong saja dia ni…).

    7. Anwar belum pernah jadi PM. Tun mana boleh jangka apa yang beliau boleh lakukan selepas menjawat jawatan PM. Dulupun Tun menyokong bekas PM Najib, dan kita lihat apa yang berlaku. Tun sendiri pun terkejut dengan kerakusan bekas PM Najib. Saya harap Tun tidak melakukan satu lagi kesilapan yang (lebih) besar di mana Tun tersilap menilai perangai seseorang yang Tun sokong untuk jadi PM. Jika Tun tersilap lagi, habislah kita…

    Terima kasih Tun.

    – Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa merahmati Tun sekeluarga –

    It is indeed good news to mca, and thank you for kicking out mca from barisan nasional, so that the chinese voters will not be the punching bag again and again for the mubarakchans and the gangs.

    Now the mubarakchans and pakatan harapan can eat the chocolate all by themselves.

    Yup, when leaders felt they no longer have the luxury of time, mereka pasti akan kocoh sini, kocoh sana.

    No worries, in less than 5 years, there will be another general election called.

    Mca too, will not go for hard landing.

    Boleh means boleh.

    Tak boleh means tak boleh.

  67. Sri Sense Oct 6,2018 1:36 PM

    Good evening Tun!

    Wah banyak betul kerja rumah kena buat hari ini. I ada dengar sosek sosek Tun dah ada cybertropper, kalau ada kosong I nak apply, boleh?

    Sempena election PD ini banyak betul cakap2 kat media massa. Kalau Tun tanya I, jika mengundi di PD, nak undi Anwar, tak? Pantas I jawab, Tidak.

    I sebagai yang tak mengundi disana boleh bagi banyak alasan kenapa I tidak akan undi Anwar.

    1. TIADA TANDA SYUKUR : Ketika baru keluar dari penjara, Anwar terus naik pentas, siap cium tangan sendiri (ada keluar dalam news portal) mengajar LGE macam mana jadi Minister of Finance. Anehnya disini kenapa Anwar tidak buat doa selamat, panggil orang masjid, kenduri di rumah. Bukan kah itu sering dibuat orang Melayu beragama Islam, tambahan bila usia dah meningkat senja.

    2. TIADA TANDA BERIBADAT : Kenapa dibulan puasa, isteri beliau pernah sebut nak pergi masjid bersama (ada keluar dalam news portal) tapi yang I nampak Amwar pergi overseas instead. Bukankah baik jika mereka berdua pergi masjid dalam bulan yang mulia, kalau tiada ada masa pun, sekali sekala bersama, especially umur mereka dah meningkat senja.

    3. TIDAK BIJAK JAWAB : Kenapa semasa disoal, samada beliau homo. Tiada jawapan terus dan lurus diberi. Anehkan, bagi seorang yang sering bercakap bagai seorang sastarawan negara ketika dipentas dan khalayak ramai.

    Namun ada juga sebab2 lain I dengar kenapa ramai rasa beliau tidak layak jadi PM, rasanya tak penting I tulis lagi, sebab online dah ada.

    Kawan2 hubby pula kata sebab kocoh. Kocoh nak keluar penjara. Kocoh nak jadi MP. Lepas ini mesti kocoh nak jadi DPM. Lepas itu kocoh nak jadi PM pula. Serba macam kocoh pun akan ada nanti.

    Sebab terlalu kocoh maka ada macam2 kes, termasuk full and free pardon dipertikaikan ramai. I tak blame agong, I bet someone lobbied for the royal pardon; must be LGE or DPM or both.

    Anwar no Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela makan 4 tahun baru tanding.

    That’s all I can say. Tun boleh cuba bantu, pilihan still ditangan rakyat. Biarlah pilihan kali ini bersih, cekap dan amanah.

  68. milshah Oct 6,2018 10:48 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    I would like to comment something that has been on my mind ever since Pakatan Harapan won the election. Being a politician you may have noticed this too. When Pakatan Harapan won, it caught everyone by surprise. Najib and his co-conspirators took time to absorb the result, which resulted in the delay of the GE result announcement, but in the end they had to accept the will of the rakyat. However, that didn’t stop them from making certain maneuvers.

    If Pakatan Harapan is to win, they had to accept, but it is one they cannot accept is Tun Mahathir becoming the Prime Minister again. They had caused too wrong to Tun, and Tun knows all their evil deeds. If they had won the GE, our beloved nation would have been destroyed.

    Their thinking was, yes, Pakatan had won the election, but as at least let’s not make Tun Mahathir Prime Minister again.

    And so, the first thing we heard was the phone call by Najib to Anwar on the day the GE result was announced. Najib wanted to make a deal with Anwar, since PKR won the most seats among the Pakatan parties. But Anwar would have none of this, he told Najib to deal with Mahathir.

    And then, there was the pardon. The speed at which Anwar was given a full pardon was amazing. Would Anwar have been given a full pardon, if BN had won the election?

    And then, there were talks that someone wanted Kak Wan to become the Prime Minister, since again on the basis the GE was won on PKR logo and therefore the offer to be PM should be given the President of PKR. Again Kak Wan declined on the basis it was agreed among the coalition for Tun to become Prime Minister.

    And recently the UMNO AGM, there was again talks of a unity government, between UMNO and PKR, which was again dismissed.

    Even the PD election, in which Anwar is contesting, UMNO decided not to contest.

    There is a sense of so much fear from the other camp not from Pakatan Harapan but from Tun Mahathir. And there is a sense Anwar will be their savior from Tun Mahathir.

    As for Anwar, he must realise, the other camp, wanting so much to friend and cosying up to him, I believe, is not out of really want to be nice to him, but more out of fear of Tun. They hope, when Anwar becomes the 8th Prime Minister, Anwar won’t be harsh to them, as Tun might. Anwar must understand, Tun governed as he did, because what if what they did, was a terrible sin, they betrayed the rakyat and the nation.

    My hope is when Anwar becomes the Prime Minister, he would not be influenced by their cosying up. A wrong is still a wrong, and they must be held accountable for what they did to the rakyat and the nation. My hope is even after Tun, Pakatan Harapan would continue to uphold the rule of law and justice.

    Let this be a lesson to everyone not to betray the trust of the rakyat and the nation.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Sistem nilai masyarakat perlu dibetulkan dahulu sebelum kita membetulkan sistem mentadbir.

    Samada diktator, demokrasi atau monarki pemimpin perlu disokong oleh rakyat.

    Penolakan oleh rakyat terhadap pemimpin tertinggi negara secara liar akan mengakibatkan kejadian yang tidak aman serta berlakunya pergolakan dalam negara.

    Malaysia berpegang pada Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah. Kita mengikut Imam As Syafie.

    Kita diterapkan dengan nilai nilai sistem yang bersopan santun dan berbudi bahasa.

    Saya tidak melihat tujuan untuk menukar pemimpin itu sebagai sukaria. Kita perlu menjustifikasikan kenapa kita perlu melakukan pertukaran.

    Ia perlu mengikut Al Quran, Hadith dan Ijtimak Ulama.

    Samada anda diktator, demokrasi atau monarki, Islam melarang keras untuk mengulingkan pemimpin. Ini kerana dibimbangi huru hara akan berlaku.

    Huru hara bukanlah ditakuti oleh kita, akan tetapi huru hara itu adalah kesan dari bunuh membunuh di antara satu sama lain, bagi yang menentang dan ditentang.

    Alhamdulillah kita beruntung kerana pernah ditunjukkan jalan oleh Allah swt dalam perkara ini.

    Kita punyai sedikit kelebihan dalam perkara ini, dan ia telah kita gunakan serta telah terbukti bahawa ia beroleh kejayaan. Iaitu kita melalui jalan piihanraya sistem demokrasi. Kita menang 2/3.

    Adalah tugas Tun sekarang untuk mengukuhkan lagi sistem nilai masyarakat.

    Sistem nilai yang betul akan melahirkan lebih ramai pemimpin yang berkaliber pada masa hadapan, walaupun sekarang kelihatan bakal bakal pemimpin pun tunggang langgang sekali.

    Pegangan Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah telah dibuktikan benar. Ia adalah hanya 1 yang benar dari 72 cabang yang ada.

    Kita perlu mengukuhkan lagi dan terus mempertahankannya.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  70. HBT456 Oct 6,2018 6:53 AM

    Yup, no one can buy power with money forever, henceforth, general election must be called.

    Mubarakchan can continue with all the bullshits of this and that.

    The most stupid leaders in this country is the chinese.

    The most pampered leaders in this country is the malay.

    The most clever leaders in this country is the indian.

    Banjir pun tak dapat disetel, even when pas vowed with gergasi keris to potong kek pulut pun tarak guna.

  71. HouseWife Oct 6,2018 2:42 AM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Democracy or whatever system designed championed by countries all the world over are man-made. Anything man-made are with flaws and defects, can be cracked and breached to insulate or cover-up a damaged situation. This is nothing unusual because it has happened whereby intelligent but corrupted persons linked to the government are hand-picked and engaged to be collaborators. Crooks preferred crooks. But as usual nothing good comes easy. Tun is attacked for speaking out and criticizing on violence, oppression, injustice, abuse of power, sufferings, disrespect perpetrated by countries claimed to be democratic and have huge super powers. So glad Tun has shown this beloved country the bright road to eradicate crook-nose, hook-nose and the corrupt.

    Is there a situation in PD, Tun that you need to go down there? Do you have to response to their SOS? Will the situation be any better if you helped out? Of course it would if you go as the PM of Malaysia it would be a great boost to their side but would it be fair, Tun? DSAI has everything needed, funds, bodyguards, government machinery but he still need Tun to help in the campaign. If he couldn’t handle this situation himself and bring success single-handed without direct support from Tun how were we to hand this country to him? This PD move is their idea so they should work extra pretty hard fair and square to woo bigger votes and win. Don’t drag Tun and then blame Tun if things go the opposite.

    Anyway, Tun this talk about “quarreling” it’s too trivial as an excuse. I mean people do talk, slander and gossip so if politicians who are good inside out this should not damage their reputation too much. As you said thick-skinned politicians can tackle and withstand anything that is obviously a sham. If you have to, Tun just do little little only. Don’t stressed out yourself, Tun. Let the people who created this so brilliant move run the entire show themselves till the very end. Sincerely I wish them luck.

    May Allah bless Tun always and protect Tun wherever you might be. May Allah give you great wealth in health so you can lead us for many many years to come, InsyaAllah. Take extra care of your safety and Thank you Tun.

    Tun

    The day began with a fantastic morning. The sky was completely cloudless with a tinge of pale orange in the eastern horizon which according to my beloved mother who told me when I was a boy that the following day will be nice and dry, no rain. So much for the state of our weather in this country which we were born in and grown to love except for some misled souls turned by brainwashing.

    So much for the fine weather and lack of natural disasters in this wonderful land of ours since eon times. However, our newspaper headlines do not match with the wonderful weather we always have. And this morning as I slurped in my wonderful RM 3 nasi lemak and poured over the headlines, this was what struck me hard in my eyeballs, the bad headlines :-

    1. FT. ” WIFE OF FORMER PRIME MINISTER CHARGED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING.’

    2. FMT ” PENSIONS, HEALTHCARE COSTS MORE PRIORITY THAN RM 1 TRILLION DEBT.”

    3. NST ” PM. WE’LL LOOK INTO FAULTY BUOYS ”

    4. NST.” NUCLEAR POWER IS OUR GREEN FUTURE ”

    5. NST.” HEROES “.

    As a group of headlines with a collective meaning, these show the state of affairs concerning NORMAL BEHAVIOUR, COMMONSENSE AND RULES WERE MISSING IN PRACTICE.

    1. ” WIFE OF FORMER PRIME MINISTER CHARGED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING.”

    Where else but Malaysia ? Where else the wife of a Prime Minister could have access to so much money as to launder it whilst the husband was in the office of the Prime Minister, mixing up PUBLIC MONEY WITH HER HOUSEKEEPING MONEY ! Where were the rules and regulations governing the behaviour of a Prime Minister who was elected as the paradigm statesman of the country by all concerned. And here, his wife is alleged to be dipping her hand into lots and lots of Public money as charged. The First in the World to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records. Where else but Malaysia ? She would have well spent her time laundering her family clothes instead of doing big business LAUNDERING MONEY BELONGING TO THE RAKYAT ! Like this, she would be happy today like you and me, Tun ! And on second thought, how could this gentleman be the Prime Minister when a situation like this arose ?

    2. FMT.” PENSIONS, HEALTHCARE COSTS MORE PRIORITY THAN THE RM 1 TRILLION DEBT.”

    The Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government walloped the revenues up-front and neglected the payment of recurrent expenditures like salaries, pensions, healthcare, education, social welfare and maintenance of the military as well. The One Trillion ringgits are still sitting in the overseas bank accounts of the crooks and ALL EFFORTS SHOULD BE MADE TO RETRIEVE THEM NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT OR HOW LONG THESE WILL TAKE.

    3. NST. ” PM. WE’LL LOOK INTO FAULTY BUOYS. ”

    This statement arose out of the dire neglect of the security maritime deep sea buoys deployed to give warning of tsunamis to come in the adjacent areas near the sea. This statement should not have been made by the Prime Minister who has more important things to consider than maritime buoys.

    This showed the dire neglect by the Corrupt and Uncaring BN Government who walloped so much Public Money for themselves that the Public Coffers are empty to service routine Recurrent Expenditures. Not only that, it is legend that the military equipment or other mechanical devices or vehicles which the Federal Government bought through the decades always broke down after a period due to the lack of follow-up and routine maintenance. Warships lie idle in ports. Submarines do not submerge. V-100 or tanks do not move. Jets do not fly.

    The New and Incorruptible Government has plenty to do in their hands.

    TAKE THE CASE OF THE DBKL. NOT ONLY ARE THEY FAMOUS FOR MAKING BUMPS ALL OVER FOR THOUSANDS OF RINGGITS EACH, BUT THE GREEN SPACES ALONG THE BY-WAYS AND HIGHWAYS ARE PLANTED WITH ALL SORTS OF FLOWERING BUSHES WHICH NEEDS CONSTANT WATERING AND TRIMMING (MANPOWER) AND THIS APPLIES TO THE WHOLE OF KL. How much money is wasted in the maintenance of flora only SUITABLE FOR THE GARDEN OF A HOUSE. MILLIONS OF RINGGITS OF PUBLIC FUNDS ARE WASTED IN THE PLANTING OF MORE AND MORE FLORA OF ALL DESCRIPTIONS. And the maintenance if any which goes with it. AND WHERE IS THE MONEY TO MAINTAIN SALARIES, PENSIONS, HEALTHCARE ETC.

    Since some folks are so crazy admiring LEE KUAN YEW, I suggest they GO AND ADMIRE HOW LEE KUAN YEW TURNED SINGAPORE INTO A GARDEN CITY WITH THE RIGHT SORT OF PLANTS AT MINIMUM COST ! This is only one area which LEE KUAN YEW TOWERS OVER DBKL IN TERMS OF SAVING MONEY AND NOT WASTING MONEY IN CORRUPTION TERMS. Has the DBKL heard of Lee Kuan Yew creepers and bourgainvillas the perennial flowering plants ?

    4. NST. ” NUCLEAR POWER IS OUR GREEN FUTURE.” Is this a joke ?

    You are correct in completely dismissing the use of NUCLEAR POWER IN OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

    The Author of the article went on and on dreamily in his ivory tower quoting the likes of Bill Gates and Western personalities from another World about the goodness and the sweetness of NUCLEAR POWER.

    Maybe the Author was not born in the 1980s yet when there was a mighty power breakdown in Bangsar. It was alleged a Dutch boy was despatched from ye olde Singapore to turn on or off the right switch as the saying goes.

    Not only that a struggling contractor who inveigled himself via a draughtsman to touch base with the source became handsomely rich from a lush contract to generate power to this day. Who says the Chinese are disadvantaged. Maybe by those who do not use their brains but their mouths.

    And the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster in Russia. My brother flew over it in 1988 and died of leukaemia in 1992. There have been disasters concerning nuclear plants in the US and the UK which have been covered up.

    In the recent Fukushima Nuclear Plant disaster about 200 miles from Tokyo, the Western countries advised their citizens to avoid travelling to Tokyo. This was followed by advertisements encouraging tourists to visit Japan put up by the Japanese Government. So far all the NUCLEAR POWER DISASTERS HAVE OCCURRED IN LARGE COUINTRIES WITH LARGE POPULATIONS.

    IF SUCH A NUCLEAR DISASTER HAPPENS IN MALAYSIA, ALL MALAYSIANS WILL BE WIPED OUT, THE MALAYS, THE CHINESE, THE INDIANS AND ALL. NOT ONLY THIS SINGAPORE WILL BE DESTROYED, AND INDONESIA, THAILAND, CAMBODIA AND VIETNAM DISABLED. Thanks to the happy-go-lucky Malaysians who do not care about maintenance of their equipment or procedures.

    ALL MALAYSIANS WOULD HAVE GONE FOR 5,000 YEARS, DEAR AUTHOR !

    I predict ALL OF ASEAN WILL OBJECT TO MALAYSIA PUTTING UP A NUCLEAR PLANT. THEY WOULD BE STUPID NOT TO. TO STOP THIS ABSURD PROJECT FULL OF CORRUPTION.

    Yes ! Corruption in Malaysia will also affect the NUCLEAR PLANT BECAUSE OF NEPOTISM, NO MONEY TO EMPLOY PUKKA PERSONAL, NO MONEY TO KEEP THE NUCLEAR PLANT IN A TIP-TOP CONDITION FROM OVER-HEATING. 1001 things will make THE MALAYSIAN NUCLEAR PLANT BLOW UP TO KILL THE 31 MILLION MALAYSIANS, THE MALAYS, THE CHINESE, THE INDIANS AND ALL FOR 5,000 YEARS.

    And the Author without thought that present day Malaysia is contributing to the Green World because of our still standing forests. And also China and America, maybe India still ignore the Green, Green World with their populations of 2.8 Billions compared with Malaysia’s miniscule 31 Millions. Dear Author the World has globalised since 1990 !

    THE NUCLEAR PLANT CAN ONLY APPEAR IN MALAYSIA BECAUSE OF CORRUPTION. NO MORE. NO LESS. AND ASEAN WILL OBJECT.

    5. NST. ” HEROES “. I offer my heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the bereaved families of the HEROES. An event which should not have happened given the circumstances.

    It is a well-known fact that disused mining ponds in Malaysia are death-traps for all, swimmers or non-swimmers. The ponds are deep with steep sides and cold water. There is no foot-hold if a person jumps into the cold water which freezes up the body. These are all death-traps to the unwary. For 6 firemen to be caught in such a situation, it seems there was a slip somewhere when the first victim had already gone under sometime before this. I suppose other factors would have saved the day. Our main concern now is to prevent further mishaps and LOOK AFTER THEIR FAMILIES WELL.

    The above-mentioned collection of neglect, the lack of maintenance of equipment and corruption due to the neglect of rules and regulations is a collection of bug-bears facing any Government and not least of all the New and Incorruptible Government of the old and the young, the good and the great as led by our Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    I would say the function of khazanah is similar to tumasek of singapore.

    The difference is khazanah connects themselves to muslim countries in the middle-east due to o & gas industry to make the biggest halal hubs in financial and manufacturing sectors via 1mdb and felda global in south east asia with a population of 30 million including sabah and sarawak.

    On the hand, tumasek singapore connects themselves to the world’s top cities based on merits and world standards with 6 million plus population.

    The late lky did mention, the local politics have too much arab influences.

    Even the melayu also feel alienated, you think other races do not feel this way?

    If you are not a muslim syariah mps, will you be able serve willingly by forcing you to follow the lifestyle of muslim?

    Itulah sebabnya umno bn tertumpang keranamu malaysia pada 9 mei 2018.

    Yup, this show all systems can fail if the owners made the wrong decision, but the country name is still malaysia.

    We cannot change the past, but we definitely can improve in the future.

    P/s: 6 anggota pdrm mati lemas to save a life, and those senators involved and igp needs to address this problem in the public as pdrm is public civil servants under malaya federation on why this happened, and how to prevent it from happening, not by sekadar baca doa, then, the case is closed.

  75. HBT456 Oct 5,2018 8:58 AM

    This apply to asian mahupun south east asia region.

    For those who cannot accept and respect other races, then, they must stay in kampung and jaga their own kampung.

    So much domestic social crimes, what so you do as the misnitry concern?

    Changing law is very tough and difficult because no one can see the impact in the long run, therefore, law shouldnt be changed just to favor someone, or political party.

    To be or not to be, that is not the question.

    Able or not, we will see how far kita semua can go.

  76. HBT456 Oct 5,2018 8:51 AM

    The definition of tolerate is to accept behaviour and beliefs that are different from your own, although you might not agree with or approve of them.

    The law that is passed and approved by the majority of the mps based on tolerance, then, the ultimate result is tidak kukuh, atau ultra.

    After so many years of doing hardtalk and softtalk, there dont seem to be a political, economic or social solutions, henceforth, programmes are here to bring malaysians of all races to reach a common goal, bukan?

    The key word to move forward is INTEGRATION of all races, bukan force assimilation mahupun soft assimilation of ketuanan melayu mahupun ketuanan islam based on vote counts whereby winner takes all.

    Everyone is aware agong and states’s sultan are malay, and the official religion of malaysia ia islam.

    Therefore, no need to continue playing with these issues again and again, dah merdeka more than 6 decades, cucu cicit pun ada, tak cukup lagi ke?

    Tun

    At this time of a person’s Life, shall we say we have seen it all. Really Tun ? With us Humankind nothing is surprising, nothing is beyond expectations. That’s Humankind for you and me. Round and round we go about our lives in Politics, Sports, Science, Wars, Inventing things or whatever through the centuries from the time of long ago when we all were supposed to be disparate tribes wearing loin cloths if not skins.

    Humankind despite their civilizations are no better than the animals in the jungle or the African wild, killing each other for space. The killing has never stopped since the beginning of Humankind. The history of Humankind is a history of wars, conquests and more killings. The creation of kingdoms and empires in different times and places. Through the centuries of wars and strifes, Humankind had only known peace under despots which came one after another in different regions in most parts of the World even the Incas in the Americas have them – the despots.

    Suddenly arising from all the sword and the blood of civilised Humankind, we chanced upon 19th Century Britain which by then had absorbed the Irish, the Welsh and the Scots through conquests by the wily English. With the centuries of strife and bloodshed in their quest for Power and to Rule over others, the British did not create the Mother of all Parliaments but the realisation of debates and majority Rule was the way to go in the pursuit of Success and Wealth in Britain’s 19th Century Industrialization. This boom was great at the expense of the poor masses and the newly conquered colonies of the World. The Wealth so engendered can still be seen in the huge estates with magnificent palaces dotting the countryside of Britain. Sometimes abandoned or still lived in. That was the result of sorting out politics on an even plane to face the World of Britain’s foes or rivals to create an Empire which the World had never seen before and on which the Sun never sets. The Power of Democracy in Britain’s self or National Interest. The other countries of the World later developed the same political forums not for fun but of Survival of the Fittest with a strong underbelly after realising that the Kings or Queens who ruled them were mainly ineffective or devoid of ideas having been corrupted by Power and Wealth. In other words, two heads are better than one.

    Like a tiny seedling in a primeval forest, this Democracy of the Mother of All Parliaments grew in lands far away as the panaceas to rule by despots, kings or dictators. The Rule by the Majority. Some succeeded in Europe but crooks like Hitler could manipulate Democracy for his purpose and others like him as well. Throughout the 20th Century, Democracy struggled to establish itself in many countries. With the collapse of the British Empire, the British left different manner of Democracy in different lands arising from their demographic manipulations like importing East Indians to Guiana, South Africa, Malaya ,and Chinese to South Africa, Australia, Malaya to fill their commercial needs. At Independence or Merdeka of these former colonies, a Constitution created to tailor fit for each ex-Colony. Many failed thereafter due to the usual excess and abuses of Humankind.

    Malaysia I would now say the Lucky Land, escaped the wanton excesses and abuses by her governing Rulers right up to 2003 because the first four Prime Ministers were well prepared and selected for the job to Rule the Rakyat. They were intelligent too. The fifth, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is exceptional in that he had to be brilliant to be able to qualify as a DOCTOR to save lives. How to save lives ? Years of study and practice using one’s brains with discipline and controlled emotions. a DOCTOR CANNOT BE SEEN CRYING IN FRONT OF A DYING PATIENT WHOM HE WAS SUPPOSED TO SAVE ! Right ? With a highly intelligent and trained mind which absorbed all details plus his doctor’s little book, nothing escaped his scrutiny. However, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was a giant in the making. He had weaknesses which the wily CLOSEST AIDES EXPLOITED HIM. His greatest weakness is his COMPASSION AND THE ETERNAL DESIRE TO HELP OTHER ALWAYS. All doctors have these traits which are good for doctors and prime ministers BUT NOT THE ATTRIBUTES FOR MAKING A HUGE FORTUNE which requires different human attributes. So, when Tun admitted he made some mistakes, I truly and sincerely believed him.

    From 1957 to 2003, our beloved Malaysia’s unique Malaysian style Democracy with a Malay bias and our loyalty and devotion to the Constitution, our Yang Di Pertuan Agong abd the Royal Sultans rested with the Head of the Federal Government, the Prime Minister.

    IN THEM, THE PRIME MINISTERS OF MALAYSIA 1957-2003 WE TRUSTED. THEY DELIVERED THEIR HONESTY, CARE AND LEADERSHIP TO US THE RAKYAT. We have always been not stupid or subservient but through our own natural Asian courtesies and respect for the advice of Elders and accommodation between different communities , we Malaysians tend to be more docile in the eyes of the foreigners. Not so. History has shown us to be tolerant and patient with crisis and problems and not to rush to the streets burning, killing and raping.

    9 May 2018 GE WAS A GREAT PROBLEM OR CRISIS SAVER FOR US MALAYSIANS BY WAY OF OUR MALAYSIAN STYLE DEMOCRACY – our civilised way. IT ONLY HAPPENED BECAUSE WE HAD THE RIGHT LEADER IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME ! Others have failed in their efforts to capture Putrajaya since 1997 ! Let us all remember for our own sake’s in the National Interest. We must never forget significant milestones in our beloved Malaysia’s colourful history.

    AND WHEN THE LEADERSHIP OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DID NOT PRACTISE DEMOCRACY BUT ONLY PAY LIP-SERVICE TO IT FROM 2004 TO 2018, the only device legitimately and in acivilised manner was to kick out the recalcitrant via our Malaysian Style Democracy with a Malay bias – the BUMIPUTRA AFFIRMATIVE POLICIES to uplift all to an even playing field. This bit of Democracy was actually what made our beloved Malaysia ticked all these years amongst others as promised by one Prime Minister after another but lost its meaning between 2004 to 2018 due to greed, weakness of the flesh and the soft underbelly COMPOUNDED BY SHADY FOREIGN TYPES IN SUITS READY TO EXPLOIT ANY WEAKNESS OF THE MALAYSIAN LEADERSHIP WHICH WAS PLENTY BETWEEN 2004-2018.

    Democracy survived in our beloved Malaysia. Cynically, Democracy saved itself with the right Leadership. Thanks to our courageous and brilliant Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Be a doctor to be sure of becoming the Prime Minister of Malaysia one distant day.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Dictator means saddam hussein needed to be mean, heartless and ruthless in killingthose rivals who opposed him during the 70s.

    Meaning people including his relatives were afraid of him, not because they respect and accept him as leader.

    The 1st female prime misnister of pakistan benazir bhutto, a muslim, was assasinated.

    The closet muslim legal aide of myanmmar prime minister ang sang suu kyi was being assasinated few years back in broad day light, if you are in her shoes, how will you feel?

    Even when north and south korea united, 2 political system will still be there for many generations to come, that is north korea remains as 1 party system, and south korea remain is a multi-party systems.

    We have gone through so many ugly politically propagated protests, jika masih tak cukup hodoh lagi, then, they really have to ask themselves again, are they not good enough, or are they not rich enough?

    To open up, or to nail the coffin, it is up to them to decide.

    Even when we know the truth, thats nothing we can do jika mereka tak rasa segan mahupun insaf.

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Democracy is a means, it is not an end. We don’t apply democracy for the sake of democracy. We can see how democracy have affected many middle east countries. For example Iraq, where the President Saddam, was seen as a dictator. The western powers dispose of him and installed democracy to Iraq. But did the Iraqi people benefited from this democracy? On daily basis, we can read news on Iraq like suicide bombings, secterial attacks between Syiah and Sunni, etc, etc. Has democracy benefited the Iraqis? Clearly it has not. Where are the Americans and British who said they disposed Saddam to make Iraq a better country now that Iraq is in state of chaos? Even though Saddam maybe a dictator, at least he brought progress to the Iraqi, at least there was no fighting between Sunni and Syiah. So I agree with Tun, we don’t practice democracy for the sake of democracy. It does not mean if every country in the world adopt a democractic system, the world will be a better place.

    However, for Malaysia, we were fortunate we had a democractic system. But democractice system alone is not sufficient. The voters must also know how to use the democractic powers given to them. And we needed a coalition of parties led by a strong leader to convince the voters to vote for the right party.

    During Najib as Prime Minister, alot of things was thrown at him but failed. The 4 Tan Sri to investigate the 1MDB scandal was disbanded, the audit report was classified as Official Secrets documents, some newspapers had their licenses revoked or suspended, Bersatu was suspended before the election,Harapan registeration was in limbo, corporate company’s that funded the opposition was investigated for income tax, etc, etc.

    He was able to dodge everything thrown at him. Not only that, those who investigated him was eather replaced or faced criminal charges for “attempting to topple a democratically elected government”.

    When all hope seems but lost, during GE 14, the people rose and used their voting powers to change the government. It was a miracle, nobody, even the oppositions, deep in their hearts thought possible. Only and only then, was Najib defeated.

    So democracy does work, as in the case of Malaysia for the GE 14, but it does also have its shortcomings, and does not necessarily work for all nations of the world.

    Good evening Tun!

    I baca berita ini 2 hari yang lalu https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2018/10/01/hannah-defends-views-after-getting-roasted-in-sarawak/

    Kalau tanya I mana yang salah. Dua2 pun salah.

    Satu nak Malaysia Baru. But the Malaysia Baru masih ada ramai rakyat dalamnya tak reti cakap Bahasa Melayu dengan fasih. Malah ada yang tak nak iktiraf Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Penghantaran. Kalau kita ingat baru2 ini ada berita Sultan Johor menegur tentang kegunaan bahasa.

    Indonesia, Filipina, Vietnam, semua tempat ini ada keturunan China, tapi mereka fasih bahasa negara mereka, tak sama macam di Malaysia.

    The other pihak pula Sarawak for Sarawakians. Ini lagi best dia panggil kita disini Malaya. Dulu I pergi Miri pun mereka panggil I orang Semenanjung sama macam orang Brunei panggil I orang Semenanjung. Memang some masih panggil Malaya. That was like 7 8 years ago.

    Perlu ingat Malaysia dah Merdeka 61 tahun.

    A sad day for Malaysia today. Our beloved icon Datin Sri Rosmah Mansor has been detained and will be charged tomorrow. What have you done.

    She is supposed to be above the law you know. We allowed her to have so much money and to spend. The more she spends the more dignity she brings to us as our icon.

    Dignity of a race has been raped by those who only understand the rules as they are written. It is beyond the written rules and laws. The silent codes that must be respected and never violated that these people can never understand.

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    And now you are the only dictator who is talking about democracy.. 🙂

    We are so amuse so to speak dear Sir!

    p/s : You cries for the coolness of the rakyat’s eyes, ayahanda Tun.

    Good morning dearest Tun

    One of the foundations of democracy is the assumption that all votes are equal. Well, that’s the theory—but in fact it is rarely so (more on that later).

    In a democracy, tribal mentality is very dangerous, because it will make you vote “for your team” instead of voting according to issues. That means that whoever leads “your team” can rest assured that they have your vote, and instead of focusing on your interests, they can proceed to deal with their own. You can see that a lot in UMNO or even in big offices, bila cakap kat manager, manager tak pass kat management, your agenda tong sampah, his agenda in 🙂

    Well, nothing is perfect in this world. We just try to get along with each other. If we can’t, avoid it la. You can migrate also, nobody tahan you. Unless hutang bertimbun ada court case maybe susah la. At least dalam democracy system ada pertukaran leaders but in communist system tiada. A leader can be forever there sampai mati. China for example. The danger for them to do business with negara2 democracy also masaalah, the leaders in those countries keep on changing, at least 5 years.

    Terlanjur bercakap pasal business, I nak share story ini, I pernah ikuti kursus MARA, like more than 10 years ago.

    Trainer pernah cerita ini, dia kata ada seorang bekas Kerani Besar kerajaan, bila pencen buka kedai runcit. Satu hari datang pelanggan. Tauke duduk kat kaunter. Pelanggan ini tanya ada rumah sewa. Tauke jawab cuba awak keluar dan lihat papan tanda atas, apa tulis situ.

    Trainer kata macam mana niaga lagu ini, sepatutnya bila orang bertanya, dia patut cari kan la, dapat extra duit dengan arrangement tersebut. His shop pun akan ada ramai pelanggan datang, sebab semua pun ada dan dia boleh buat.

    Ini cerita lama Tun. Ini pula cerita baru.

    I ini ada main game online. Ada masa nak beli barang online tak mau pakai credit card, I pakai MOL points. I pernah pergi kedai Cosway yang owner orang Melayu, dia kata tak ada, tapi MOL points website kata Cosway ada jual. Bila gesa2 barulah owner check dalam system, sah memang ada, sudah pula tak tau guna.

    So I pergi berapa tempat dan tanya, sebelum I complaint I kena buat cukup research dulu kan.

    I pergi satu lagi Cosway pekerja perempuan asyik main talipon, bila tanya jawab, tak ada, cuba MyNews. Bila tanya MyNews berdekatan, jawab ada jual tapi internet down. Sikit punya pusing orang Malaysia buat orang Malaysia. Lagu mana tu Tun?

    So finally, masa nak tuang minyak kat kedai Shell yang biasa, I terus tanya budak Bangla yang isi minyak, sini ada jual MOL points? Dia jawab, MOL points, itu topup ka, ada2.

    Macam mana tu orang Bangla lagi pandai.

    Whoever becomes the next prime minister, he will no longer enjoy 2/3 majority votes to dictate what he sees fit, and thats for sure.

    When the public trust is betrayed, it could never be earned back though.

    I already said, jika betul2 mahu ambil kira, we have to go back to the past events that lead to look east policy, depeg of rm against trading us dollar and capital control policy since the arrest of anwar on 1.9.98.

    Yup, each financial crisis can never be the same since no one knows what will happen henceforth, general election must be called.

    But, when syariah mps outnumbered non syariah mps, then, as non muslim, you should know it is time to kiss goodbye forever.

    Not being in the federal government is not the end of the world, therefore, treat it as the blessings.

    The ball is on macc at putrajaya.

    Greed vs fear, mubarakchan decides.

    My own way of thinking
    End day there is no perfect solution to any problem

    US seems Very democratic on the surface
    But the fact is its politician behaving Communist and very dictator
    Using force , Military oppression at expense of human lives
    Just to make sure they get their way

    The facts All or almost all Politician are Hypocrites
    Always point finger at others yet pointing 4 fingers at themselves which they did not realize or perhaps refuse to realize

    Today Govt will have the opposition to oppose in Parliament
    What do they oppose ?
    Oppose for the people for the nation benefits or just using it for their own hidden benefits
    So much so we see ugly argument in Parliament
    Much most in Malaysia , South Korea and several Govt
    Much so the Oppositions voice are quite in par with the Govt

    In Singapore we can see much mature Parliament
    As Opposition voice are much less heard thus much weaker
    The Govt will squeeze yr balls before you could even utter a word

    People give you names ? Dictator ?
    Prophet Muhammad p.u.h face far most accusations than this

    I don,t believe in Party competing another party to form a govt
    Different Party will compete , campaign, pointing fingers at others now and then
    The best Party selected will Win

    My Vision of building a Govt
    Individual competing another individual
    Those interested talented person who have the will , The sincere intention comes forward to form a Govt
    From these group of people , they will chose the best individuals within for the right post

    From these formations a system to elect their own leader , their own Ministers
    They will not be allow to have their own Business as it will conflicts their role in Govt . Those will be paid comfortably for so not they will be corrupted

    As most Party that form a Govt , end say .Every will tends to benefits the posts for their own individual interest or business
