A Parody: Imam Apandi Ali says Najib is OK, we Malaysians are not

Not only is he (Najib) a democrat, he is also a pious religious leader who upholds Islam and will not hesitate to invite a respected religious party like PAS to form a unity government with UMNO.–Iskandar Dzulkarnain

Attorney-General Apandi Ali recently cleared Prime Minister Najib Razak of all charges relating to the RM2.6 billion donation and the RM42 million from SRC International that he received in his private bank accounts in 2013.

Instead of rejoicing at Najib’s good fortune as we get back to the daily grind, Malaysians are still speculating like stock market remisiers about his innocence. So what more do Malaysians want?

Why isn’t anyone apologising to Najib on social media or congratulating him for his innocence and honesty? Why is the Opposition still hell bent on implicating him and 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) on the misappropriation of funds?

Way before these developments, Najib hinted of an Anti-Najib Campaign and an international conspiracy to unseat him, and now it is horribly clear countries from the four corners of the world have reared their ugly heads to do precisely as he indicated.

Hong Kong… USA… Singapore… France and Switzerland are all jointly investigating 1MDB for purported fraud and money laundering to the tune of USD4 billion although the Swiss have quietly hinted that Najib is not being investigated.

Everyone knows that America is an enemy, while Switzerland should investigate their own corrupt citizens like Xavier Andre Justo, instead of meddling in other country’s affairs. Hong Kong is China’s stooge while Singapore should be thankful to Malaysia for its very existence and France would do anything to sell their military arms like submarines and nuclear power plants.

Less than three days after AG Apandi cleared Najib of all possible criminal charges, these evil governments started to accuse 1MDB of the misappropriation of funds without any concrete proof. Even France has revived investigations into the Scorpene submarine commissions deal and Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibu.

Malaysians should learn to call it a day. Now that Najib has been triumphantly vindicated, we should be thankful for having such an innocent and honest prime minister who will lead the country to greater heights if we just allow him ample room to do his job.

Even an Arabian Prince who was mistaken for the late Arab King trusted Najib so profoundly, that he willingly donated RM2.6 billion to our Prime Minister’s personal accounts. But instead of blowing the whole sum on the 13th General Election and to combat the waning Muslim Brotherhood threat, our prudent Najib only used up a measly RM62 million of it.

An instead of pocketing the rest like other ruthless and greedy politicians would have done, our prime minister promptly returned the balance or 91 per cent back to the King with an open heart. Such tall tales of chivalry are what fairy tales like the Arabian Nights are made of.

Barisan Nasional leaders can vouch for a fact that Najib is a righteous man who is incapable of corruption, money laundering, swindling or any other hurtful accusations levelled at him by the Opposition.

This is why so many BN leaders are willing to pawn their reputations to protect his impeccable character and sacrifice their careers to ensure no harm befalls dear Najib. This is what true sycophantic friendship is all about.

Everyone including Royalty knows that Najib deserves another chance. AG Apandi should be highly commended for his virtuous actions and for not buckling under the tremendous pressure brought on by the onslaught of negative public opinion.

Meanwhile, a courageous Najib can only smile at all the unthinkable accusations being levelled at him, knowing full well that in the end, the truth will set him free.

Najib has always come across as a moderate world class leader compared to the likes of Robert Mugabe or General Idi Amin. His suave, dashing good looks and charming demeanour immediately impresses anyone he comes in contact with.

For the past six years Najib has done so much to unite the nation with his 1Malaysia slogan, 1MDB and BR1M, and we should be thankful for his contributions.

With the untamed energy of a Bugis warrior, Najib is ready to take the country to the 21st century. He single-handedly abolished the ISA, replacing it with more effective laws like Sosma, Pota and the NSC Bill. He also saved the nation’s economy by implementing the highly popular GST.

With Malaysians getting more and more racist by the day, such laws are heaven-sent to divide and rule the nation, and to save Malaysians from themselves.

Not only is he a democrat, he is also a pious religious leader who upholds Islam and will not hesitate to invite a respected religious party like PAS to form a unity government with Umno.

Therefore, Malaysians should stop believing in the Opposition lies that one man could single-handedly bring an entire nation’s economy to its knees but heed instead the advice of our ministers on getting a second (or third) job instead to ride out the economic downturn.

Be thankful that the GST has saved the nation from getting stuck in an economic rut so that we can look forward to the next BR1M handout.

Lastly, let’s give Najib a big hand for being found innocent, leading Malaysia into first world nation status and restoring democracy and the rule of law to this beloved land of ours.

The Altantuya Murder Resurfaces with a New Twist–The Game Sirul Plays

The Altantuya Murder Resurfaces with a New Twist–The Game Sirul Plays

by Amerik Sidhu

http://www.malaysiakini.com

COMMENT Former Police Commando Sirul Azhar Umar has indicated his intention to ‘expose’ the names of five personalities who have attempted to “bribe or coax” him into implicating Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.

What manner of Man is this Prime Minister?

This anticipated revelation is to manifest in Part 4 of a series of audio-visual presentations produced and directed from an Australian detention centre situated at Villawood, New South Wales and scheduled for release in the next few days.

Permit me to take the wind out of your sails, Sirul, by guessing the names of these individuals. They are most likely none other than Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar (accompanying your mother), ex-UMNO division leader Khairuddin Abu Hassan, Sarawak Report founder and editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad and your migration consultant, Robert Chelliah.

A Convicted Cold-Blooded Murderer in Skull Cap

Before I proceed further, let me say I find it incredibly incongruous for a convicted cold-blooded murderer – who has never denied shooting a poor defenceless young lady in the head twice, and blowing her body up with military grade explosives – to sit piously before a camera in a religious white skull cap and offer to the world at large, unsolicited narratives on your present position and your advice surrounding this murder.

First, let’s put the situation into perspective. You are not a celebrity. You have been captured by the Australian Immigration Authorities and incarcerated because you are a convicted criminal.

The Australians have, however, very kindly placed at your disposal the means by which you may challenge your detention under the provisions of the Australian Migration Act 1958 and the Regulations made thereunder.

You have taken advantage of these facilities by lodging with the Migration Authorities what may be described as a ‘Protection Visa’ sub-class 866. If you succeed in your application, you will be allowed to remain in Australia as a free man with permanent resident status.

You have been advised by your Australian lawyers and migration consultant that anyone applying for such a protection visa must undergo a process of character clearance under Section 501 of the Migration Act. The relevant minister must be convinced that it is safe for a person with a criminal conviction to be released into the community.

This entails the visa applicant being honest and truthful in his application. It behoves the applicant to describe in detail under what circumstances and conditions he committed the criminal offence for which he had been convicted – i.e. to attempt to reduce the gravity of the crime by way of “mea culpa”.

Extenuating circumstances

In other words, you will have to convince the minister that you are not inherently a criminal by nature, but were forced – by extenuating circumstances – to commit the offence; for example, in the course of your duties as ordered, which may have been the cause of your error of judgment at the time of committing that offence. You will also have to show genuine remorse and regret.

As you have yet to comply with any of the above criteria, your application for this visa looks as if it is doomed from the start, despite what you may have been told to the contrary.

Abdul Razak Baginda–The One Who Got Away thanks to Najib

Sirul, you have gone on record publically, at least twice, by making statements implying that you were ordered to commit this murder.The first occasion was during your trial at the Shah Alam High Court where you read out a lengthy statement from the dock after your defence was called. In this statement you categorically described yourself as a scapegoat used to protect those who were not in court.

The second occasion was when you gave an interview with Malaysiakini on February 17, 2015 in which you also categorically stated you were under orders to kill Altantuya, and that “those with motive for the murder are still free.”

You have not retracted these statements.Your Malaysian lawyers also confirmed on December 31, 2015 that you had applied for a ‘protection visa’ with the Australian authorities and if this was granted, you would be released from detention and would be free to be at large in Australia – but that the biggest stumbling block to obtaining this visa was your conviction.

Bearing in mind the criteria set in place for a visa of this nature to be granted in your circumstances (being a convicted killer), the only hope you would have is to come clean and explain why you committed this murder and under whose instructions.

Your Australian lawyers and your migration consultant have already informed you of this and have advised you to reveal the person or persons who gave you those orders, so as to assist your application for an 866 Visa.  You were about to do this until a hurriedly gathered posse of advisors from Malaysia (whose identities are available), descended on Villawood to persuade you otherwise.

A little concerned

I am reliably advised that amongst this posse were three Special Branch officers from Bukit Aman. They were in contact with a “Datuk” in Sydney who was then entrusted with the task of looking after your financial affairs and those of your son (who is still in Australia), and to identify a AU$1 million property into which you would move once your visa was granted, all to be financed by a certain party.

Your solicitor, Christopher Livingstone, barrister Matthew Golan, and migration consultant Robert Chelliah, were a little concerned that your application for the 866 Visa would stand little chance of success unless extenuating circumstances for the murder were put forth.

You appear to have ignored this advice and instead were persuaded to partake in what can only be described as a very feeble attempt to extricate yourself from your very own committed admissions of unseen hands directing the extermination of a Mongolian irritant.

You now intend to come out with the final (presumably) audio-visual presentation releasing the identities of those you accuse of trying to bribe or coax you into revealing the personality involved in issuing you with those orders to kill. One of these individuals might even be your own mother.

Let us focus on the word ‘bribe’. This would inevitably involve an exchange of currency – in one form or another – in return for a favour. I sincerely hope you disclose the precise sums offered to you by the persons you intend on fingering, because this will inevitably raise further questions in relation to the funding you have received over the past 10 years and from whom these funds came.

You previously engaged the services of two very prominent and capable criminal lawyers, Kamarul Hisham and Hasnal Rezua Merican. These barristers spent a total of 165 days in the Shah Alam High Court defending the charge brought against you. These lawyers then handled your appeal to the Court of Appeal and defended the prosecutor’s appeal to the Federal Court.

Throughout this period you were an out-of-work former Police Corporal, languishing in the Sungai Buloh penitentiary with no access to funds. Your lawyers could not have survived without payment, which would have been substantial for the amount of work involved. How did you manage to pay them?

Who funded your travel to Australia? Who is funding payment of the fees charged by your solicitor, barrister and migration consultant in Australia? Who is paying for your son’s education and living expenses in Australia?

Who funded Sirul?

And who is paying for the continued services of your Malaysian legal team for the work they are doing for you in Australia, and all their travel and accommodation expenses for the numerous trips they have made to Villawood? And who is paying your ‘Datuk butler’ in Sydney for looking after all your needs?

I am sure these are some of the questions every right-thinking Malaysian is asking.In the last audio-visual presentation you made available to the press, you had taken pains to point out that Najib was not involved in the murder you committed. You said it was a big sin for you to slander a person, that Najib was never involved and that he had no links to the case.

One wonders why you found it necessary to make this statement? I am unable to identify one single person who has gone on record directly accusing Najib of involvement in Altantuya’s murder.

Bearing in mind the fact that you, yourself, have gone on record unequivocally insinuating you were made to commit this murder – presumably against your will – and that someone ordered you to do so, this begs the question why, out of 30 million Malaysians, you have chosen to exonerate only one man?Your attempted protection of Najib has only succeeded in opening a Pandora’s Box of suspicions where none may have existed.

Considering the entire circumstances, and specifically acknowledging the fact that you have said you had absolutely no personal motive to kill Altantuya, anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have to conclude that you have been persuaded to refrain from revealing the identity of the person who ordered you to commit this murder with misguided promises of financial security in return.

These promises could only have come from one man, who obviously wields great clout and who appears to have access to vast sums. Who is this man Sirul?

Simply put, you are in a right pickle, mate. If you don’t tell the Australian Immigration authorities why you did this to Altantuya, you will not get your visa. And without your visa, you will remain in detention forever because the Australians won’t allow you to be extradited back to Malaysia as you face the death penalty there, and they don’t agree with it.

My guess is this impasse will be solved once your death sentence is commuted to one of life imprisonment, or you are granted a pardon. Only then will an application for extradition succeed and the Australians will quite happily hand you over to the Malaysian Police. Who knows, perhaps someday you will be known as ‘Datuk Sirul Azhar Umar’ even? Others have been awarded honorific titles for much less, after all.

Scorpene Submarine Corruption Case –Former President of Thales International Asia indicted


January 30, 2016

Scorpene Submarine Corruption Case –Former President of Thales International Asia indicted

by John Berthelsen

http://www.asiasentinel.com

Former boss of a French defense company has been indicted in Paris on charges of bribing Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, involving one of the most notorious scandals in Malaysian history, including sex, corruption, murder and political chicanery.

Finally! French Act in Altantuya Murder Case

Bernard Baiocco, 72, former president of Thales International Asia (Thint Asia), a unit controlled by the French munitions manufacturer DCN, was indicted on Dec 15. for “active bribery of foreign public officials on people including Najib Razak,” according to Agence France Press, quoting judicial sources.

Najib is enmeshed in yet another monumental scandal in Malaysia today over US$681 million mysteriously deposited in his personal account in AmBank Malaysia in 2013 that has nothing to do with the affair when he was defense minister, although both cases illustrate the depth of corruption that has overtaken Malaysia. At least four questionable deaths, three of which were outright murder, have been linked to various cases involving Najib.

As stories have increasingly tied him to wrongdoing, he has sought to intimidate the domestic press, most of it owned by government-aligned political parties.  He has sought vainly to buy up opposition websites and has blocked two of the toughest international critics, Asia Sentinel and Sarawak Report, as well as Medium, a popular blog platform used as a mirror site for opposition publications.

Najib was Minister of Defense at the time of the alleged bribe, amounting to €114 million which appears to have been passed on to the United Malays National Organization. In the early part of the first decade, he embarked on a whirlwind of defense purchases, almost all of which were tainted by bribery. However, it was the purchase of two French Scorpene submarines that represented the most spectacular scandal. The episode was the subject of a prize-winning series of stories by Asia Sentinel.

Baiocco was held in custody for 48 hours, according to AFP, together with the Directorate of Naval Construction (DCN) for the sale, who was also indicted for complicity in misuse of corporate assets, the sources said. According to documents made available to Asia Sentinel in 2013, the scandal involved French officials all the way up to including Alain Juppe, then the foreign minister, and was conducted with the knowledge of then-Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

DCN weapons sales across the world were the subject of astonishing scandals, including the deaths of French engineers in Pakistan, reportedly because bribes to Pakistani generals were stopped by French President Jacques Chirac. Others died in Taiwan. DCN has been accused of bribing government officials in half a dozen countries.

“This is an important and encouraging step,” William Bourdon, the crusading French lawyer who brought the case on behalf of Suaram, the Malaysian reform NGO, told AFP. “The French judges show, even if the investigation goes on, their ability to dissect complex corruption mechanisms. In some respects, the investigation is just beginning.” Bourdon was kicked out of Malaysia when he flew there in 2013 to attempt to interview witnesses involved in the case.

The story gained notoriety with the October, 2006 murder by two of Najib’s bodyguards of Altantuya Shaariibuu, a jet-setting Mongolian interpreter and party girl who was said by a Malaysian private detective named Perumal Balasubramajiam, in a sworn statement to have been the plaything of Najib before she was passed on to Razak Baginda, reportedly, the private detective said, because Najib felt a foxy girlfriend who liked anal sex would impede his progress to the prime minister job.  Balasubiamaniam later died of a heart attack although his associates in Kuala Lumpur believe he may have been murdered via an injected drug to induce heart failure during a visit to a government-run hospital.  He died shortly after the visit.

Asia Sentinel was given the Society of Publishers in Asia’s highest award for investigative reporting in 2012 for its series of stories on the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu and the massive corruption connected to her death with the purchase of Scorpene submarines by the Malaysian government from the French government-owned munitions maker DCN and its subsidiaries. A package of the stories can be found here.

After supposedly being passed on to Razak Baginda by Najib, according to reports in Kuala Lumpur, Razak Baginda and Altantuya toured Europe in Razak Baginda’s Ferrari, pausing for pictures in Paris, before the two broke up. But the 28-year-old Altantuya, apparently pregnant, was furious that the US$500,000 promised her for her role as interpreter in the final stages of the Scorpene deal, flew to Kuala Lumpur to demand payment according to a note she left behind in her hotel room.  She was abducted in front of Razak Baginda’s house in Kuala Lumpur by Najib’s bodyguards and murdered, according to a cautioned statement delivered by one of the two that was never delivered in court. Her body was wrapped in C4 explosive and blown up, presumably to destroy the DNA of the fetus.

The trial of the two, lasting months, was by all accounts designed to steer away from any indication of who had hired the two to kill her. It is a question that has never been asked, and in fact an appellate judge ruled that asking motive in the case was irrelevant. Eventually the two were pronounced guilty and sentenced to hang. However, temporarily freed on appeal, one of the two, Sirul Azhar Umar, fled to Australia where he is being represented by two United Malays National Organization lawyers.  Why UMNO lawyers are defending a convicted murderer in Australia has not been explained.  He is said to be negotiating for a huge bribe to keep his mouth shut.

In Paris, according to AFP, the prosecuting judges said they suspected sums from a firm called “C5 commercial engineering” provided for  payment by DCNI, a subsidiary of DCN, of €30 million to Thales International Asia, for “selling expenses for export (FCE).”  The “selling expenses” are suspected of being a bribe. 

Another company, the Hong Kong-based Terasasi Ltd., whose main shareholder was Razak Baginda, received almost the same amount for consultations. Investigators suspect the consultations of being a front for bribes.

The counsel for Mr. Baiocco, Jean-Yves Le Borgne, said his client’s indictment was based on “legal acrobatics” because “there is no evidence” that the former minister had received funding and its advisor must be considered a “commercial agent,” therefore outside the scope of corruption of public officials.

Don’t Make Kevin Morais a Hero, says Raja Petra Kamaruddin

http://www.malaysia-today.net/stop-turning-kevin-morais-into-a-fooking-hero/

The bottom line is: Kevin was not a saint and hero as many are now saying he was. He was just one more slime ball and scumbag. And he served his masters in the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), MACC, and the Attorney General’s Chambers to fix up innocent people on fabricated charges. And he was NOT murdered on the orders of the Prime Minister, as some are insinuating. He was murdered because he did dirty deals and those who do dirty deals normally risk that sort of retaliation and retribution. That is called payback.

NO HOLDS BARRED

RPK and The Dilemma

Anwar Ibrahim was an  enigma to many of you people. Well, at least while he was in UMNO and when he whacked Chinese schools and Hindu temples and helped make many corrupt China men and Malays extremely rich. And then he became God’s gift to Malaysia and the person who was going to become Prime Minister and who will save the country from the very party that he tried to take over but failed — meaning UMNO, of course.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was a dilemma to many of you people. Well, at least when he threw Anwar into jail and detained so many people without trial and killed so many people in Memali and spent RM100-200 billion of the country’s money and destroyed the judiciary, etc. And then he became God’s gift to Malaysia and the person who was going to save Malaysia by ousting Prime Minister Najib Razak and replace him with a puppet who will rule Malaysia by proxy with a Council of Elders telling him what to do.

Kevin-Anthony-Morais-Rosli

Kevin Anthony Morais was a scumbag to many of you people. Well, at least when he tried to fix up lawyer Rosli Dahlan on fabricated charges on behalf of the A-G and IGP who wanted to bring down the Director of the CCID who was investigating the shenanigans in MAS that led all the way to those who walked in the corridors of power. And then he became Malaysia’s latest hero because he was murdered for reasons we do not know yet but which everyone assumes must have something to do with the Prime Minister because that story sounds nicer than the other story even if the other story may be true.

Well, Malaysians have short memories, as Dr Mahathir is fond of saying. So they forgot what Din Merican wrote five years ago in December 2010 (READ HERE). Amongst what Din said were:

On Monday December 20, Lawyer Rosli Dahlan will be in the dock of the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court to be adjudged whether he is guilty or innocent of the charge brought against him by A-G Gani Patail using the MACC. That will be the verdict by a court of law.

I have attended Rosli Dahlan’s trial from Day 1 until it ended. I know the charge, I know the facts, I have seen the MACC witnesses in action giving evidence ,and I have heard the MACC DPPs delivering their submissions. I will now pronounce this verdict by the court of public opinion.

The accuser is Senior DPP cum Assistant Director of Legal & Prosecution MACC, Anthony Kevin Morais. He prefers to use his second name as his first and thus he is called Kevin rather than Anthony. Kevin regards himself as learned in the law with wide powers conferred on him by the MACC Act and its predecessor legislations. Kevin does not like to be questioned as to his decision making, a trait passed down from the Attorney- General Gani Patail himself. The philosophy of power that this higher echelon of the A-G’s Chambers subscribe to is that “We command, you abide”.

He looks rather youthful for his age. He is a dapper dresser and is very well-groomed, putting to shame some of the shabby looking lady DPPs. He powders his face, puts on mascara, rouge and lip gloss when he is in court with well manicured finger nails. With such attention to personal vanity, he looks even more attractive outside of office hours.

Kevin’s sexual orientation is unknown although Malaysia Today’s report out of London suggests that he has an older English boyfriend whom he spent time with last Christmas. He is unmarried, and it is doubtful if he ever will, at least not in Malaysia. As such, there is nothing to be said of his family values.

Although born a Catholic, his present lifestyle would invite ex-communication by the Pope in the Vatican. Because of the predominant number of Malays in the Legal and Judicial Service, his flair of the English language places him amongst the more competent government lawyers. Thus he interprets the law as he wants to, and not as how it should be.

Kevin hopes to be a Judge one day to fill in the vacuum left by another Indian Judge with an English sounding name, Justice Augustine Paul, whose eminence was in ruling every piece of defence evidence in Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy I as “Irrelevant”. Consequently, the Good Lord rendered him irrelevant by recalling him to permanent abode six feet underground.

Life was all sunshine and rosy for Rosli Dahlan – he had a good happy family, his firm had expanded, his practice was flourishing. Nothing, it seemed, could have gone wrong, that was until Rosli decided to defend his friend, the former Director of Commercial Crimes Investigations Dept (CCID), Commissioner of Police Dato’ Ramli Yusuff. Since 2006, Ramli was targeted to be eliminated from PDRM by former IGP Musa Hassan and by A-G Gani Patail.

Musa Hassan had to eliminate Ramli because Ramli had discovered his links with the BK Tan syndicate which was about to nationalise and corporatise the illegal money-lending Along syndicates. Gani Patail wanted to eliminate Ramli because Ramli had recommended that the former MAS Chairman, Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli, should be charged for various offences, whereas Gani Patail had already cut a deal with Tajuddin’s proxy – Shahidan Shafie.

You can read more about that case HERE, which Din Merican has laid out in detail.

The Unusual TPPA Partners: Najib Razak and Barack Obama

The Unusual TPPA Partners: Najib Razak and Barack Obama

http://www.financetwitter.com/2015/10/obama-picks-najib-as-friend-because-the-president-is-mentally-unwell.html

By now, it’s an international knowledge that Prime Minister of Malaysia – Najib Razak – is allegedly linked to corruption, money laundering and the murder of Mongolian Altantuya. No previous Prime Minister has been so popular, not even the evil dictator Mahathir Mohamed. And if everything goes well, Najib could overtake Mahathir as the longest serving Prime Minister.

Najib Razak Worry Sad - Al Jazeera Exposed Altantuya MurderFBI Department of Justice DOJ - Najib Razak and Rosmah Mansor - inset Riza AzizCoincidentally, both Mahathir and his self-picked successor Najib were sworn in as the most powerful man in the country at the age of 56 (*spooky*). When Mahathir resigned in 2003, he was already 78-years-old, having ruled for 22 years. He, however, chose to retire because his popularity dropped like a rock. Still, UMNO controlled two-thirds majority.

Najib, on the other hand, performed worse than his predecessor – Abdullah Badawi – when he lost the popular vote to merely 47%, the first in the history of Barisan Nasional that he leads, on top of a failure to recapture two-thirds majority that Badawi had lost earlier on. He’s now into his sixth year of premiership; another 16-year to go before he can match Mahathir’s record.

Najib Coward, Badawi Clueless, Mahathir DictatorThe Infamous UMNO Trio

But even with roughly one-third of his journey before breaching Mahathir’s 22-year-rule, Najib has already broken every Mahathir’s record imaginable. He has accumulated more than RM600 billion (new definition in debt is close to RM800 billion) in external debt within 6-year of premiership, in comparison to Mahathir’s RM200 billion by 2003 when he retired.

Judging by his habit of spending taxpayers’ money and borrowing as if there’ is no tomorrow, Najib could easily create another record of breaching RM1 trillion in external debt before 90-year-old Mahathir fade into the hereafter. Najib regime also has proudly purchased more private jets for his official (and private) use than any other Prime Minister in Malaysia .

Najib Razak Admiring Airbus A350 - Private JetIt is perplexing to think why Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor need 6 private jets, with the latest ACJ319 (registered under 9H-AWK) purchased last December. Nevertheless, he is the only Prime Minister who had convinced some wealthy Arabs for donations to the tune of RM2.6 billion, without any strings attached, a feat which charismatic Mahathir could not achieve.

Bad luck or otherwise, it was also under PM Najib Razak that Malaysia saw the loss of two commercial planes in a single – the still missing H370 and the crashing (shot-down) MH17 – killing more than 500 innocent lives in both incidents. Despite not experiencing global financial crisis such as the 1997-98, the ringgit plunged to as low as RM4.48 to US$1 dollar under his administration.

Chinese Ambassador Huang Hui Kang and Wife at Petaling Street ChinatownFor the first time, a Chinese Ambassador had taken the trouble to visit Petaling Street (Chinatown) while warning Beijing would do everything under its arsenal to protect its investments, after Red Shirts gangsters endorsed by Najib regime threatened to terrorise the area which could possibly start a racial riot.

If the above are not enough to make you give Najib Razak’s Facebook a “Like”, here’s another one. In a very rare event, nine Malay Sultans issued a decree urging the PM to complete the investigation into the infamous 1MDB scandal as soon as possible and to take appropriate action against those implicated; something that never happened during Mahathir’s iron-fist-and-evil administration.

Altantuya Murder - Al-Jazeera - Murder in MalaysiaOn the global front, Najib has definitely beaten Mahathir hands down when western media such as the New York Times and Wall Street Journal published his corruption and money laundering allegations. Qatar-owned Al-Jazeera saw it fit with publication about the murder of Altantuya allegedly linked to Najib. Even the FBI has started investigation on him.

But Najib couldn’t care less because he’s very proud that President Obama chose him, of all the world leaders, as golfing buddy. The thought of “Obama’s Chosen One” alone makes Najib orgasm almost every night. And he isn’t ashamed about calling himself the only prime minister ever recorded doing so (golfing) with the leader of the global superpower.

Obama and Najib at Golf Session1MDB Najib 700 Million Donation - Obama and Staffs Laugh At Arab MoronsSo how could a right-thinking President of the United States chose a leader such as Najib Razak as his golfing buddy, besides making him a puppet of U.S. to do all the biddings such as the just concluded TTPA? Turns out, the POTUS – Barack Hussein Obama – could be mentally unwell. That’s a polite way to say Obama is crazy.

Before you foam at the mouth and bleed from the nose, the accusation that Obama is mentally unsound doesn’t come from us. John Schindler, a former NSA intelligence analyst and a former professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, claims that a senior European diplomat told him that the entire government of a European country considers president Obama to be literally mentally unwell.

Had a senior EU diplomat, old friend, ask me today, “How does your impeachment work? My government believes Obama is quite mentally unwell.”

Schindler tweeted – “Had a senior EU diplomat, old friend, ask me today, ‘How does your impeachment work? My government believes Obama is quite mentally unwell.’” The wording indicates that the opinion is not that of a single person, but rather the whole government of whichever European country the diplomat is from.

If the allegation is true, it means the governments make up the EU – Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom – think Obama is mentally unsound.

Barack Obama Mentally UnstableWell, it seems the Europeans are catching up with what most of Americans have been saying all this while – that Obama is mentally unstable – judging from the policies he has made so far. Wait a minute – does this mean Najib Razak has befriended a POTUS who has mental problems? Hmm, Najib should be careful when Obama takes that swing next time.

Leave the Red Shirts alone and let them self destruct. They are supporting a discredited UMNO Prime Minister, purportedly to redeem Maruah Melayu. Something else worthy of your support and generosity is happening in Kuala Lumpur on Malaysia Day, September 16. 2015.

So, not all are bad news since Malaysians are fighting back to safe their country from perdition. I am sorry that I am unable to be there in person. But I will contact  Dato Ambiga Sreenevasan on how I can support this worthy cause. Please give generously.

Listen to my good friend and fellow civil society activist, Dato’Ambiga  at Oriental Hearts and Minds Institute function to launch the Dr. Tan Chee Khoon Lecture Series and Fund–Raiser in honour of this great Iconic Malaysian and Model Member of Parliament, known during Tunku Abdul Rahman’s premiership as Mr. Opposition–Din Merican.

Here is  the OHMSI message:

Integrity, in essence, represents doing the right thing at all times and in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching. For the past 10 years, we have had a specific focus on ‘Integrity’ and constantly engage communities to support or initiate action on specific issues relevant to them.

To mark our 10th anniversary, we are pleased to announce the launch of our inaugural Tan Sri Dr Tan Chee Khoon Lecture Series cum fund-raiser to recognise the man and his contributions, and promote his ideals and legacy in political life.

Championing the local integrity scene today is Civil Society advocate and former Bar Council President, Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan who has relentlessly campaigned for cleaning out all forms of corruption, and mobilised society for greater transparency and election reform.

Dato’ Ambiga will deliver the inaugural lecture themed “Integration with Integrity… Without Fear or Favour” speaking for how the Federal Constitution remains our only hope for integration with integrity as a 1Bangsa Malaysia. The late TCK stood for these values.

Join our campaign on this Malaysia Day, September 16th at Connexion @ Nexus for greater integrity in this nation-state and enjoy the evening with good dinner, great company by supporting this very good cause to revive integrity in Malaysia. If you cannot attend, please take a table and we will fill up your seats with students from local colleges and universities.

 Malaysia: A Shameless and Racist Nation under Najib Razak

by J.D. Lovrenciar@http://www.malaysia-chronicle.com

For how long more must we Malaysians suffer the torrent of shame? How long more must we live with all the tribulations? The political landscape is being riddled with allegations, scandals and expose after expose. The economy takes a beating unceasingly with no one able to say what the Ringgit will be worth tomorrow.

UMNO Red Shirt Goons

And the Prime Minister asks for another six months. How long more? That is the question on every citizens’ minds and the talk of the town. Why must the Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Razak face so many monumental scandals revolving around him like a raging, stinking cesspool?

If the government’s sovereign fund, 1MDB was managed soundly like any other business entity or at the least resolved satisfactorily, would the nation not have been spared the global shaming? Over six years, since 1MDB was hatched in 2009, we knew nothing. The world knew nothing. But in the span of recent months all hell has broken loose and Najib, the captain of 1MDB, insists all will be cleared in six months.

And nobody knows how. He does not give credible reasons and justifications that can not only convince Malaysians but just as critically important, the global community of discerning observers and concerned investors.

Altantuya returns to haunt us

KDAltantuya

Now the mother of all murders has exploded: If guilty of 1MDB corruption, jail time awaits Najib but for murder – it’s the death row. That aside, the mother of all murders has been burrowed up again. The Aljazeera expose on its 101 is viewed by decision makers around the world.

Malaysians have also been paralyzed by the ‘documentary’ – not just a ‘news’ report mind you. Despite the Palace of justice having rendered the verdict, the questions keep coming back like a relentless boomerang. Why?

Surely Al Jazeera would not want to make a fool of itself and squander off its hard-earned reputation because of a murder story in a third world country, would it?

Aging before his time and why?

And to add to the derogatory impact on our national integrity and reputation, only now we learn that the reporter was thrown out of Malaysia for working on the expose. And if that is not enough, we are now threatening to go after the reporter who is not a Malaysian citizen.

When the Transparency International Council met here and sledge hammered Malaysia’s questionable and worrying state of graft in the full view of international media and about 1,000 delegates from over 100 countries around the world, we shouted back at them demanding that they did not respect the host country.

We did not scream at the corruption. Instead we trained our cannons on the highly credible leaders who spoke without fear or favor. Meanwhile the Ringgit is plunging but we stoically maintain that our fundamentals are string.

Mysterious disappearance of AT LEAST 2 key govt figures

Add to all these the mysterious disappearance of at least two key figures in government. Inevitably, the public is speculating since nothing is forthcoming from their leaders and especially Najib.

What we have are all the sandiwara distractions like the ‘red shirts’ and race bashing. We also have ridiculous allegations that Malaysians are trying to topple their government. We hear that some individuals are committing treason by peddling lies to ensure they can oust the sitting Prime Minister.

Indeed the country is being besieged not by any foreign power but by our sins of omission and commission. People are sharing similar sentiments at the work place, in the weekend markets, in neighborhoods and with every conversation – why is Najib insisting that he wants to remain in power?

And why are there some idiots willing to fight tooth and nail to defend him using only racial slurs to incite hatred and destroy racial harmony just to keep this dishonest and corrupt leader in power. Truly it is bewildering. Every night Malaysians end their shop-talk and go to bed with that insecure feeling of ‘what is next tomorrow?’.

Dr M a reborn hero

Ex premier Mahathir Mohamad has called for Najib to resign as well as demanded an investigation into Altantuya’s murder be re-opened. . The just released Al-Jazeera video claims that Najib’s close friend Razak Baginda had pulled the trigger, while Sirul and another cop Azilah Hadri used  C4 explosives to blow her body beyond recognition.

It is therefore not surprising why people are willing to throw their support for Tun Dr. Mahathir’s call for Najib to step down even though they may not regard Mahathir as a spotless leopard.

It is also not uncommon to hear street conversations stating that ‘at least Pak Lah (Najib’s predecessor) had the grace to quit in the best interest of the nation rather than fight for extended time behind the wheels of the nation’.

So how long more must Malaysia endure.  In any case it is a decision that Malaysians must make and if they fail to do so, they must take personal and collective blame. Meanwhile some media in Malaysia choose to survive by the philosophy of ‘see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil’.
