Dr.M's Proxy Din Has Started
Creating A New Kleptocracy Order...
People who think politicians would not or should not play politics during the Coronavirus pandemic are a bunch of fools. They thought corrupt politicians would give a damn about an outbreak. In every crisis, there is an opportunity. It was absolutely hilarious when former premier Mahathir Mohamad said yesterday that there is no need for popularity contests during Covid-19 outbreak.
As an old fox, he should know better than anyone else that now is the best time to play politics and undermine the incompetent and clueless Muhyiddin government, the same backdoor government whose legitimacy is in question, and the same traitor who had betrayed Mahathir himself by plotting with UMNO crooks and PAS extremists behind his back
Right after a declaration of MCO (movement control order) on March 16, PM Muhyiddin Yassin wasted no time in playing politics when he chaired a special National Action Council meeting the next day with all the chief ministers – except those from the states controlled by opposition Pakatan Harapan, namely Selangor, Kedah, Negri Sembilan, Penang and Sabah.
The comical stunts demonstrated by Health Minster Dr Adham Baba, whose “drink warm water to kill the bloody Coronavirus” formula had shocked the world’s top scientists, and Doraemon Minister Rina Mohd Harun, whose advice to all women to talk and giggle like Doraemon had taken the world by storm, were political moves to impress – but failed – upon the people.
Even the authorities’ pussyfooting in hunting the remaining stubborn Tabligh religious members who refused to come forward to be tested for Covid-19 was a careful political move not to offend the sensitive Malay-Muslim vote bank. There’s a reason why Malaysia is still plagued with 3-digit new cases, despite having the fourth strictest movement control in Asean. Go figure!
The permission for beer makers Heineken and Carlsberg to resume their operations, only to retract it, was a political stunt to divert attention from dozens of screw-ups by Muhyiddin’s half-past-six ministers. The creation of a post – Special Envoy to the Middle East – was a wasteful, yet a necessary political move to pacify PAS president Hadi Awang who did not get to become deputy prime minister.
Acting innocence in front of the TV and portraying a generous government by splashing truckloads of cash to the people was just a smokescreen. The prime minister knew that “cash” could easily blind gullible people. Behind the scene, Muhyiddin spends most of his time playing politics. And his true face is emerging – slowly but surely – as the lockdown enters the second month.
All hell breaks loose after Islamist party PAS secretary-general and de-facto Law Minister Takiyuddin Hassan announced that all MPs (Members of Parliament) of the Perikatan Nasional backdoor government who currently do not hold positions in government will be made heads of GLCs (government linked companies). It means the scumbag politicians will rob more taxpayers’ money.
GLCs are companies that have a primary commercial objective and in which the Malaysian Government has a direct controlling stake. In essence, they are business entities, not political parties. Exactly how could corrupt and extreme politicians add value to private or public companies? Still, some shameless politicians could justify such daylight robbery.
Mohd Zuhdi Marzuki, a PAS central committee member with “IQ of a carrot”, claimed if all the MPs can be appointed as chairpersons of government linked companies, they can act as the people’s representatives to “monitor” those companies. Sure, what could possibly go wrong. The last time a politician was put in charge of Tabung Haji, he happily laundered RM139.3 million.
Yes, we’re talking about UMNO warlord Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim (former Tabung Haji chairman) and his brother Abdul Latif, who had abused their position to enrich themselves with corruption and money laundering. Similarly, former Felcra chairman Bung Moktar and his wife Zizie Izette had taken bribes in a RM150 million investment in Public Mutual unit trust products.
In fact, the Tabung Haji was so screwed up that by December 2015, Zeti Akhtar Aziz, Governor of Bank Negara (Central Bank) sent two letters to the chairman of the fund, Abdul Azeez and copied to the then-PM Najib Razak, who was also the Finance Minister – warning that the pilgrims’ fund was on the brink of collapse and a massive bail out by taxpayers may be required.
Will Azeez Rahim be re-elected as Chairman of TH ?
The previous Pakatan Harapan government, which despicable Muhyiddin had toppled, had also rescued Felda with RM6.3 billion of taxpayers’ money due to crooks and thieves like former Felda chairman Isa Samad and former PM Najib Razak. In total, a whopping RM24 billion was spent to bailout Tabung Haji (Hajj Pilgrims Fund) and Felda alone.
And do we need to start on 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Bhd) scandal, a sovereign wealth fund, which had accumulated a staggering debt of RM50.75 billion? Not only Najib appointed himself chairman of the board of advisers of 1MDB, he also paid himself RM120,000 per year as allowances – on top of plundering at least US$4.5 billion (RM19.5 billion), according to U.S. Department of Justice.
But we know why Mr. Mahathir appears to have accepted Muhyiddin as his successor, despite his initial cries that he was incredibly sad with the betrayal of his most trusted lieutenant. The 94-year-old fox was the real puppet master who had given his blessing for Muhyiddin to topple his own government. The coup was to deny PM-in-waiting Anwar Ibrahim from taking over the leadership.
In the same breath, Mahathir could use Muhyiddin as his proxy to tap into the 6-million support base of UMNO and PAS to retain power. On its own, Mahathir’s weak party Bersatu (PPBM) had only 25 seats in the 222-seat Parliament. Not only had the old man stolen 11 MPs from Anwar’s PKR party with the defection of Azmin Ali’s faction, Bersatu now controls PAS’ 18 MPs and UMNO’s 39 MPs.
The sudden migration of 11 MPs linked to Azmin, who was caught in a gay sex video scandal, has increased Bersatu’s “direct and indirect” number of MPs to 36. We had said this a dozen of times and we’ll say this again. Mahathir’s endgame is to merge his party with UMNO. And now Kadir Jasin, Mahathir’s media and communications adviser, has admitted that possibility.
The idea of giving every UMNO and PAS MP (who had not been given a minister or a deputy minister post) a chairmanship in GLCs is clearly a despicable act of bribery to buy the loyalty of allies, especially UMNO warlords. With Bersatu’s strength ballooned to 36 MPs, it can now negotiate – on an equal level – with UMNO’s 39 MPs to form a new Malay party that possesses 75 MPs.
Of course, now that his proxy Muhyiddin is in the driver’s seat, Mahathir could save the embarrassing moment of having to rub shoulders and sharing jokes and laughters with the same UMNO crooks whom he had despised and condemned earlier, such as Najib Razak, Zahid Hamidi, Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, Tengku Adnan, Bung Moktar.
Whether he realizes it or not, the disgraceful PM Muhyiddin is building a “New Kleptocracy Order” – feeding all the power-hungry, immoral and corrupt politicians from UMNO and PAS with a bloated Cabinet of 71 ministers and chairmanships in GLCs. Mr. Kadir should stop insulting people’s intelligence by constantly trumpeting that Mahathir would not accept UMNO en bloc.
Perhaps he should explain the speculation that his boss’ son, Mukhriz Mahathir, may not challenge the so-called traitor Muhyiddin for the presidency of Bersatu. If indeed Mahathir can’t stomach the prospect of the return of crooks like Najib Razak and Zahid Hamidi to power, should not Muhyiddin be denied his chance to retain his post uncontested in the upcoming Bersatu election? - FT
Din,you agree GLC to be headed by MPs? Have you not learned from what you discovered in Felda,TH,MARA..etc.Politicians are not businessmen they are opportunist...
If Dr M had allowed the Police to proceed with their investigation and charge Azmin for the video tape, there would not be a back door Govt today! - - f/bk
PM riding on Covid-19 Pandemic
and the Economy...
I could have been wrong when I stated in my Sinar Harian column on Sunday that the toppling of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Government by the Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin-led faction of the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) had nothing to do with the Covid-19 pandemic or the economy. It might be the case at the point when an uprising was mounted against Bersatu Chairman and the then Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, on February 23 but might no longer be the case now.
Then the mantra for leaving PH was the survival of Bersatu. Muhyiddin and his supporters in the party’s Supreme Leadership Council (MPT) had argued vehemently that Bersatu would lose the coming General Elections if it remains in the PH. The reason being, the Malays could not accept the cooperation with the DAP. This, they said, was amply seen in the defeat of Bersatu’s candidates in the Semenyih state by-election in March 2019 and the Tanjung Piai parliamentary by-election the following November.
Also the majority of the MPT members were not comfortable with the prospects of Dr. Mahathir handling over power to the PKR leader, Anwar Ibrahim. But looking at Muhyiddin’s moves since being sworn in on March 2, it is clear that he is taking full advantage of the pandemic and the economic chaos to secure and strengthen his position as the Prime Minister.
He acknowledged the legitimacy deficit of his backdoor government or the government that came in through the roof, according to Pas President Abdul Hadi Awang. On March 27, when presenting his first Economic Stimulus Package, Muhyiddin openly admitted in a nationwide broadcast that “..this government may not be the government that you vote (sic) for.”
First of all, he used the pandemic as an excuse to postpone the sitting of Dewan Rakyat from March 9 to May 18. This would give him time to gather support should there be a vote of no confidence against him.
Second, he created a large Cabinet assisted by an ever larger number of deputy ministers. He sacked board members and top executives of GLICs, GLCs and government agencies appointed by the PH Government to be replaced by his political allies starting with the appointment of the Machang Umno MP, Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub, as Chairman of the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB).
Today, the Pas Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in-charge of law and parliamentary affairs, Takiyuddin Hassan, was quoted as saying that government MPs would be appointed to head GLCs. Muhyiddin has also been accepting all and sundry into Bersatu without consulting the MPT. The PKR MPs aligned to Mohamed Azmin Ali had reportedly been admitted into the party.
The Movement Control Order (MCO) also gives him room to strengthen his position in Bersatu. All party activities, including divisional annual general meetings and leadership elections, are being postponed. He is being challenged for the post of President in the party’s first ever leadership elections.
Dr Mahathir had already won the Chairman’s post uncontested. That would pose a problem for Muhyiddin as they are not seeing eye to eye on the coup and the en bloc acceptance of members into the party.
The party is fractured. Among the original members, some are aligned with Dr Mahathir while others support Muhyiddin. Then there are the Umno MPs who crossed over after the 2018 GE and the Azmin faction of the PKR who allegedly joined after Muhyiddin became the PM.
He does seem to mind that his publicity-hungry Umno ministers are stealing the limelight and, in the process, making mockery of his government. It would appear that these seasoned Umno Ministers are setting the narrative of the government.
This leads to speculations that he may eventually merge Bersatu with Umno and used his position as PM to lead the merged entity. This could be a way for him to get rid of Dr Mahathir for good. The latter had said he would not accept Umno en bloc into Bersatu although he was willing to accept Umno leaders as individuals.
It is very clear that Muhyiddin is leading the country back to the last two decades of Umno era when good governance, accountability and professionalism were not the priority. Nobody had seriously wanted to make Muhyiddin PM. Now that he had successfully made himself PM, why should he not consolidate his position and, hopefully, win the next GE. Or at the very least hangs on to the position for the rest of the parliamentary term.
That’s what he is doing. He is buttressing his position by dispensing favours so that when the Parliament sits in May, the chances of him being defeated in a no confidence motion are minimised. He is also shrewdly making himself indispensable and unchallenged by not appointing a Deputy Prime Minister. Instead he appointed four Senior Ministers who are theoretically beholden to him and, therefore, are not likely to gang up to challenge him. - A.Kadir Jasin
DAP jadi convid kepada PPBM...
Memahami apa yang dinyatakan A Kadir Jasin kenapa PPBM beriya-iya benar meminta Mahathir meninggalkan PH ialah untuk memastikan PPBM akan menang dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang. Ada teori dikeluarkan teoritis parti itu (sang metera) pinjam istilah A Kadir, sekiranya PPBM kekal dalam PH mereka akan kalah, PH akan kalah kerana rakyat menolak DAP. Dalil yang diberikan ialah kekalahan calon PPBM di pilihan raya kecil Semenyih dan Tanjung Piai.
Memang tepat kalau parti itu mengambil langkah awal untuk menyelamatkan diri. Tetapi soalnya apakah PPBM atau orang yang bermetera dengan teori itu akan berjaya, PPBM akan pasti menang dalam pilihan raya nanti? Mungkin langkah bergabung dengan serpian PKR kemudian berpelukan dengan musuh Umno dan Pam ia boleh menyelamatkan parti itu.
Saya mahu persoalkan satu perkara sahaja dalam beberapa banyak faktor yang tidak mudah untuk PPBM menang nanti, yakni tentang DAP. Apakah parti itu sedar yang DAP menguasi 42 kerusi di mana semua kerusi itu adalah kerusi majoriti Cina dan kawasan campuran dimana mana yang bukan dominasi Melayu. Apakah jaminan dan keyakinan diletakkan PPBM bahawa mereka dapat mengatasi DAP yang memiliki 42 kerusi itu?
Nampaknya bukan semudah itu apa lagi dalam mood hari ini orang Cina seperti juga orang Melayu dan India yang mengharapkan sebuah negara demokratik, menghormati mandat rakyat, marah dengan peristiwa rampasan kuasa itu. Ertinya 42 kerusi DAP itu tidak boleh diletakkan di bantal mimpi.
Muhyiddin dan kerajaan PN boleh kekal sehingga habis tempoh kemudian mengusai Piraum ke - 15 nanti dengan syarat mereka dapat melalukan terbaik dalam masa dua tahun setengah ini. Soalnya apakah Covid-19 tidak menghalang mereka. Kesimpulannya DAP tetap menjadi “Covid-19” kepada PPBM dan PN. - mso
Mitos Islam terancam
dan rejim Bani Melayu...
Saya nampak yang seronok dengan rejim Bani Melayu ni cuma para pembenci Anwar, pendengki Amanah dan pewirid DAP je.
Adapun rakyat yang rasional dapat melihat bahawa rejim PN ini beroperasi tanpa mandat, tanpa manifesto, tanpa halatuju, tanpa common platform, tanpa wawasan, tanpa KPI, dan yang paling menjolok mata ... tanpa maruah.
Menteri-menteri dilantik bukan kerana merit, tetapi sekadar untuk membeli kesetiaan politik dan kuasa. Tak cukup jawatan menteri, jawatan GLC difaraid macam cerita P Ramlee, "satu untuk engkau, dua untuk aku".
Retorik Islam Melayu hanya indah khabar. Setelah kuasa ditangan tiada apa lebihnya rejim baru ini dari sudut Melayu dan Islam. Malah satu demi satu para penunggang agama menjilat ludah dan kahak mereka tanpa segan silu.
Industri arak terus dibela. Judi bertambah. Pemandu mabuk tetap sama walaupun waktu PKP. UEC diiktiraf. Sekolah vernakular berjalan macam biasa. Pembunuh Adib masih bebas. Hudud tak payah cerita laaa ... langsung hilang dari radar.
Dari sudut ekonomi, kerajaan baru juga kelihatannya sudah hilang kawalan. Muhyidin terpaksa mengambil semula falsafah pentadbiran Najib iaitu 'cash is king'. Rakyat digula-gulakan dengan pemberian tunai sehinggakan orang kaya pun layak mendapat bantuan wang tunai. Samada kelangsungan kewangan negara berupaya atau tidak dari sudut jangka panjang itu bukan lagi perkara penting. Pengukuhan kuasa politik buat masa sekarang adalah segala-galanya buat rejim baru ini.
Untungnya rejim baru ini ialah sikap PH sebagai pembangkang yang professional dan bertanggungjawab. Mereka tidak memainkan sentimen perkauman dan kebencian agama sepertimana ketika Bani Melayu menjadi pembangkang sebelumnya. Mereka tidak menyebar fitnah dan pembohongan. Mereka mengkritik dengan hujah dan fakta. Mereka turut memainkan peranan aktif memberi kesedaran kepada rakyat agar mematuhi peraturan PKP dan membantu rakyat yang memerlukan.Rakyat mampu menilai dengan adil. - Jamzuri Ardani
Ramai yang ambil kesempatan dari Anwar...
Ada seorang siswi dari sebuah universiti membuat poster mengatakan Anwar sebagai Mat Jenin Malaysia, dengan slogan, “dahulu berangan sekarang meroyan,” Kenapa saya memberi respon kepada siswi berkenaan, walhal dia masih boci (bocah) lagi. Dan kenapa dia menjadi Anwar sebagai sosok dikritiknya bukan orang lain? Siswi berkenaan terpengaruh dengan persekitaran yang ada kepadanya, mungkin dia dari keturunan Umno totak. Jadi tidak ada masalah kalau dia mengatakan Anwar demikian.
Dan siswi itu sebenarnya bijak, apabila dia serang Awnar dia akan mendapat perhatian. Dia tahu nilai tambah yang ada kepada Anwar. Orang akan melihat kepadanya sama ada dalam bentuk baik atau jahat. Dan apa dilakukan siswi berkenaan mengambil kesempatan ke atas sosok bernama Anwar adalah sesuatu yang sudah jadi satu macm mata pencarian. Bukan sahaja siswi itu mahu guna Anwar mendapat sejuring perhatian, tetapi masih ramai lagi.
Nasib dan kelebihan Anwar di mana dia berada dia akan diambil kesempatan dan menguntungkan orang lain. Namanya Anwar bermaksud, “bercahaya” dia memberi cahaya kepada roang biar pun dianya masih belum terang benderang.
Bukan sahaja siswi yang hingusan dan belum pun tahu bertahrah, (mungkin juga basuh kencing tak siram) sepenuhnya menggunakan Anwar sebagai modal untuk mencari populariti atau mendapat perhatian, bahkan orang yang lebih dianggap pintar dan mempunyai rangkaian lebih luas pun turut menggunakan Anwar.
di Malaysia bermula dari gerakan reformasi.
Dan sepanjang saya mengenali politik dan mengikuti jejak politik Anwar saya tidak nampak apa yang dilihat oleh siswi berkenaan yang Anwar adalah Mat Jenin. Mungkin dalam konteks untuk jadi perdana menteri, beliau kata begitu. Tetapi harus difaham untuk jadi PM adalah cita-cita Anwar yang masih dalam memperjuangkannya. Dan adalah “budak” (bodoh) kalau orang masuk politik tidak mahu mengejar kedudukan dan jawatan.
Orang yang setulus dan sejujur Abdul Hadi Awnag pun mahukan jawatan. Dia tidak minta tetapi ambil bila diberi. Jadi, untuk mengata dan menggelarkan Anwar dengan apa-apa konotasi carilah yang tepat bagi mengelakkan kedangkalan ilmu kita. Buah cempedak di luar pagar, ambil galah tolong jolokkkan. JIka tak tahu tolong belajar, jangan nanti disorak-sorakan. - mso
Awak boleh gelar masuh politik macam-macam, tapi bukan atas nama Islam. Sampai bila nak guna Islam untuk pecahbelahkan orang?
Tak payah nak politik sangat dik. Belajar kasi habis dulu. Bahagiakan mak ayah kau. Capai dulu apa yang kau nak. Mahasiswa Islam tak perangai macam ni dik.
Sebelum kau jadi mahasiswa Islam, Anwar Ibrahim dah pegang Presiden ABIM dah dan Hadi Awang sebagai ahli ABIM. Kau lahir terus dapat nikmat dunia. Kau tak merasa lagi sakit politik ni. Bahagiakan mak ayah kau dulu tau. - f/bk
Its pure stubbornness or sheer stupidity...
