After much speculation the Prime Minister's Office today released a press statement citing long time deputy governor of Bank Negara deputy governor Muhammad Ibrahim as it's new governor replacing Zeti Aktar Aziz.
"Muhammad Ibrahim, the deputy governor of Malaysia's central bank, has been named as its new governor in a statement released by the Prime Minister's Office on Wednesday (Apr 27).

A smudge named Maha City came complete with a MahaTower in Langkawi!


To be constructed in an already congested not that so big an island!

Artist impression of Maha phallic symbol. Drawing is always nice bit Not too late to be stopped!

A smudge on this beautiful isand to be named Maha City!

Yes I saw this project in the town of Kuah in Langkawi island, probably mooted and initiated under the administration of the recently "replaced"former Mentri Besar of Kedah.
Islanders spoken too said the tower is going to mar the landscape of the island, and the name of the project and the soon going to be erected tower does not bode well with many.
"The tower is being named after some disgraced politician we shall not name here,"said my taxi driver recently. Yes the name Maha does not bode well for many Malays, especially, in Langkawi.
Perhaps the new mentri besar of Kedah can make an executive decision to re-name the tower say for Maha Tower to change it to say People's Tower, or any other name but Maha?
Malaysia is  not in a culture where we build monument to be later named after some despicable people, persons or politicians?
I am just saying!

Such issues are beyond good manners, sir! (In reference to Mahathir)

Trust me no Malay will miss him for too long if he is sacked from the party!


Gentleman all the way through until just now eh!

Some of the more dubious and dodgy people he associates himself with!

He lost the plot to a serial evil Chinese.



It was after "push comes to shove" and then "the last straw the broke the camel's back" that this nasty old man had to be "brought to heel"!
I am referring to PM Najib Razak and the cabinet who  decided to drop former, ex, ceased-to-be-prime- minister Mahathir Mohameed as advisor to a state owned Petronas.
Najib's decision was made out of a simple logic, if you try to overthrow the PM and his government and at the same time reaping all the goodies that the government offering you is simply not right.
No, the decision to get rid of Mahathir had nothing to do with: "Najib Razak, pink lips and supposedly soft and too nice a man (and nice men don't win wars, someone tells me all the time), has done something crude as oil: the PM has ended Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's tenure as Petronas Advisor! " read more here.
No Najib was not being as crude as oil when sacking Mahahtir, he was being doubly and treble-ly gentleman and civilised even when after Mahathir incessant attack on him  until push comes to shove.
Najib now must make the decision to get rid of all the Umno members who signed the declaration to get rid of the current PM, and Najib must do it really quick.

Just for the record:
Mahathir never liked all the previous PMs of Malaysia, including the current one.  Does this mean he is the best ?????  I am sure Malaysians are not stupid to believe so, or are they? To believe in  this man, who also once tried to get rid of the country's monarchy system?

They all have lost the plot.!!!!!......







Overpowered, overtaken and blinded by their unbridled selfish ego driven by their own warped sense of private agenda, hatred and anger and probably also by their greed, few senior Umno politicians have definitely lost the plot vis-a-vis the Malay politics in the first place.
Unclear with concept of the Malay survival was what drove Muhyiddin Yassin to do what he did and now he faces the possibility of being thrown out of Umno for going against the Umno struggle.
I can understand why chauvinist and corrupt Chinese politicians and losers members of the Malay opposition, who rallied together with an Indian-Muslim former prime minister trying to get rid of Najib Razak, I cannot understand why Muhyiddin!?
Now then what are they really saving Malaysia from? Well they are actually saving Malaysia for themselves.
For the former Indian-Muslim ex-PM he was probably trying to save his sons' billions from being investigated  for corrupt ill gotten gain.
   PM: "He was also angry because the sitting PM could not play ball with him vis-a-vis his overseas wealth that he tries to bring home with one eye closed.
   PM: "He wants to bring home his overseas accounts without telling BNM, I said I cannot close my eyes everyone is accounted for?"
   PM:" This man also had the audacity ordering me to dish out huge contract to his cronies (five of them) mostly already a filthy rich Chinese tycoons.  I said I cannot!"
   PM:  He is also under a notion that I am his gopher (a go-boy) doing his bidding for him.
Many stuff the PM can say about this former Indian-Muslim ex-pm but he wont.
But one thing is for certain that all those Malay Umno members who sat with the opposition and the former ex-Indian-Muslim pm must be expelled from Umno for urging Najib to resign.
Finally we need to save Malaysis from riff raff like Lim Kit Siang, Ling Liong Sik, Mahathir a/l Moehammad, Mat Sabu and Muhyiddin.
Here an idea, may the king can pardon Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim and set him on the man that incarcerated him!

Poorly educated but incredibly successful people!



Abraham Lincoln: He was not educated and yet.....

You know Steve Job on of the things he was, a school dropout!

Basically Lim Kit Siang is a racist old man, I have made up my mind!
His incessant search for the DAP's Holy Grail, that is the form of Malaysia for the chauvinist Chinese, will never end until he drops dead.
He will denigrate and condemn anything Umno and Malays, even to a point where some Malays are even falling for his evil diatribe.
Recently he condemned the newly appointed Kedah mentri besar as being uneducated thus deemed to be not fit to be a chief executive of a state. For this old racist I will say "Stupid racist is as Stupid racist does."
Did you know that there were and still are many poorly educated people who are incredibly successful in their own fields? Read Here...
Like many poor Malays who did not make it well in school for what ever reason, including the new mentri besar of Kedah Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah, they however excelled in other aspects of life.
Bashah may not  have tertiary education but he did so well bringing up his siblings and children successfully to achieve what he personally could not do.
Well, racist Kit Siang and for those of you uppity snort face snobs who think Bashah is not  fit to manage a state to think again.
One thing about us Malays that chauvinist and racist people must know we are quite resilient, in every aspect of problem that we as a race is facing or will face!

Like their cheese, Groses Arschloch Swiss AG yarn is full of holes!!!

Exclusive: Malaysian cabinet minister tells the Guardian the Swiss attorney general got his facts wrong in US$4bn corruption allegations

The Guardian
By Oliver Holmes
Tuesday 2 February 2016

Malaysia has accused Switzerland of breaking protocol and circulating misinformation when its attorney general said last week that billions of dollars had been stolen from Malaysian state-owned companies.

In the most scathing response by a member of the government to date, Malaysia’s Minister of Communications Salleh Said Keruak told the Guardian that “these premature statements appear to have been made without a full and comprehensive appreciation of all the facts.”

Decision to clear Malaysian prime minister 'impossible' to overturn

‎-----
“It’s very unusual, and against normal protocol, for a senior official of one country to speak publicly on the internal matters of another country. Yet that is what the Swiss Attorney General has done,” he said.

Najib was himself cleared of corruption in Malaysia a week ago by the country’s attorney general, who said the Saudi royal family was the source of a $681m “donation” to Najib’s personal accounts just before the 2013 election.

While the Swiss attorney general’s office told the Guardian that Najib was not under accusation, the announcement focused intense international pressure on the government just three days after Najib said accusations against him had “been comprehensively put to rest”.

Cabinet minister Salleh told the Guardian that Swiss Attorney General Michael Lauber should have first contacted his counterpart in Malaysia.

“Does the Swiss AG normally talk to the media first, and then the relevant authorities afterwards?” he said. Salleh said 1MBD had undergone extensive audits since 2009 and the $4bn figure “simply could not have been misappropriated under such conditions.”

He accused Lauber of inferring that the Malaysian attorney general had been uncooperative “when in fact Malaysian authorities have been waiting to hear from their Swiss counterparts for many months,” he said, referring to case evidence Malaysia has requested from Switzerland.

Malaysia’s attorney general agreed over the weekend to cooperate with his Swiss counterpart.

Salleh also accused Lauber of spreading misinformation for saying Malaysian companies being investigated have made no comment on the losses they are believed to have incurred.

“As anyone following developments related to 1MDB is well aware, the company has issued statement after statement – providing detailed explanations, and a breakdown of its financials - to address questions that have previously been raised about these alleged losses.”

“In certain Western media outlets, there exists a bias that it’s the institutions and governments of developing ‎countries that don’t play it straight, while Western governments do. In this case, the actions of the Swiss Attorney General prove the opposite,” he said.

Asked to respond to Salleh’s comments, spokesman for the Swiss attorney general André Marty said: “As a law enforcement body and judicial authority, the (Office of the Swiss Attorney General) has not to comment on political statements.”

Marty said his office “took note with satisfaction of the reaction of its Malaysian counterpart and of its commitment to fully support Switzerland’s request for mutual assistance.”‎

The RM2 billion ‘donation’ Mahathir kept a secret from you

December 9, 2015

The Third Force
‘Prime Minister’ is proving to be a title too horrific to bear for Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak. Ever since Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Daim Zainuddin chaired the roundtable in London on the conspiracy to oust the Prime Minister late last year, sleep has not come easy for Najib, who may have been sharing a bed with bloodthirsty politicians all this while.
The meeting with some of the biggest deals in corporate-Malaysia, was to discuss ways in which Mahathir could finance a long-shot campaign meant to put a fix on Najib. The broad idea was to wage a war of perception against the government on as many fronts as possible, even if it meant the destruction of UMNO and the economy.
article picture 1-1
“Mahathir and Daim organised a meeting last year, attended by some of the foremost political capitalists known to both the ruling coalition and the opposition”
The attack on the ringgit
The only virtue that emanated from the meeting was that it ended. Right after that, Mahathir began courting scorn over every initiative that had Najib inscribed to it. The modus operandi was simple; “if it was a Najib move, it was a bad move.”
Amongst the initiatives that were flagged for Mahathir’s slings and arrows was the economic reform package the Prime Minister had instituted right after an announcement he made on the 2nd of May 2009.
The reforms, meant to spur growth by stimulating a high-income, all-inclusive and sustainable economy, triggered a positive response from investors and caused the financial system to move closer than ever towards the efficient frontier. Five years after the announcement, Bloomberg outlined Najib’s reforms in very promising flavours.
A report by the New York based news agency on the 13th of August 2014 noted how gross domestic product had, for the first quarter of 2015, seen a 6.2% increase, surpassing as it seems the 6% annual growth the Prime Minister had hoped to register through 2020. According to Bloomberg, per capita gross national income (GNI) had risen to USD 10,060 in 2013, crossing the USD 10,000 threshold for the first time in Malaysian history.
The bottom line showed a growth impressive enough to turn Mahathir red in the face. Najib, whose economic call to action had somehow narrowed the gaps in Purchasing Power Parities (PPP) with regional economies, had done a helluva job, better even than Mahathir or Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (Pak Lah) afforded in their first five years in office.
article picture 2-2
“From 2010-2014, the Najib administration registered a 19.76% increase in Gross National Income (GNI), more than double the 8.06% increase for a period that began in 1981 and ended in 1985 under the Mahathirian regime. The ‘vote of confidence’ by investors for Najib made Mahathir jittery, which is when he decided that the economy had to fail, whatever the cost. It was the only recourse to retiring Najib from office and even politics, for good”
The positive shift in attitudes among investors towards Malaysia’s economy triggered a chain reaction, making the USD15,000 threshold in Gross National Income seem meagre. Better yet, Najib stood optimistic that the threshold would be crossed two years ahead of target, lodging the country firmly into the World Bank’s ledgers as a high-income economy by 2018.
These figures pointed to an arch that read “Vision 2020; you’re on track.” This, of course, infuriated Mahathir, who had by then architected a plot for Najib to be retired by 2015. But we’ll get to that soon enough in another article.
Suffice to say, the only recourse Mahathir saw was to attack the ringgit by a slingshot, which explains why the target was always 1MDB, the so called RM2.6 billion in donations and everything else that had an economic ring to it. Mahathir wagered on the likelihood that Najib would stoop to his bidding and retire, like Pak Lah did in 2009.
On the 30th of September 2015, Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz weighed in on the weakening ringgit and put it down to global market forces. Though she did make perfect sense, she had apparently been struck by a pathological disorder many are now calling ‘Mahathiresia’. It’s a variant of amnesia, except that the afflicted are those who let slip from their memories stuff Mahathir prefers that you do not know.
article picture 3-3
“Zeti knew that the reports by Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report were criminally subversive and largely inaccurate, but refused to come to Najib’s defence”
And what Zeti knew, as did Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Tan Sri Rashpal Singh, Jessica Gurmeet Kaur, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail and Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed, was that the February and July media onslaughts by Wall Street Journal and Sarawak Report were works of fiction. Nearly all of them were aware that the editorials were powered by Mahathir and Daim for morally corrupt and criminally subversive reasons.
The reports were contrived to bug the eyes of investors over portrayals of massive corruption scandals and economy-crushing complicities. By March 2015, the talk in town was that 1MDB and the mysterious ‘disappearance’ of the RM42 billion was causing the ringgit great harm. These were works of fiction, designed to strike fear in the hearts of investors and trigger a glut in liquidity.
The long and short of it is this; the currency was devaluing at an artificially accelerated rate due to a media fuelled smear campaign. At the same time, legislators were going crazy over talks that the economy was crippling and that the country was going bankrupt. It was around then that several BN pipsqueaks started growing balls and came right out to pour scorn over the state of the Malaysian economy.
The mudslinging and the deluge of media clichés by Mahathir and his henchmen created a snowball effect that was plunging the ringgit closer and closer to the RM4.5 mark. But it was all part of the plan. The ringgit depreciated more than it should have, while Mahathir and Daim tipped their glasses over what they thought was a perfect storm that would do Najib in once and for all.
Funding the mudslinging campaign
The smear campaign Mahathir and Daim had contrived bore a price tag only patrons of the billionaires club could afford to split a cheque on. Both the Tuns were reluctant to ride a coup d’ etat on stash they’d have to fork out from their secret green vaults. If money was needed to destroy Najib, it had to be somebody else’s money, not theirs.
With this in mind, the two Tuns tabled a ballpark figure at the London meet, attended also by some of the foremost capitalists in the political arena, listed below:
1. Berjaya Corporation Berhad CEO Dato’ Seri Robin Tan Yeong Ching
2. Usaha Tegas Sdn Bhd CEO Tan Sri T. Ananda Krishnan
3. Genting Group Head of Strategic Investments Dato’ Justin Leong
4. YTL Corporation Berhad Managing Director Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Francis Yeoh
article picture 4-4
“These corporate bigwigs were complicit with Mahathir and Daim in a plot to topple the Prime Minister by artifice”
The group settled on a R 2 billion figure, RM600 million of which was shelled out in worldwide media coverage by a US based lobbyist and Public Relations Group. It seems that the remainder of the fund was used to grease the palms of some Members of Parliament (MPs), local media portals, bloggers, and several other well connected persons closely linked to both Mahathir and Daim.
Now, the provenance of the funds is one thing. But the manner in which the remaining RM1.4 odd billion was accounted for and subsequently disbursed is a question that begs some urgent answers. It is believed that both Mahathir and Daim cobbled together the idea that a total of 40 legislators from UMNO, MCA, MIC and DAP could be bought over at a price that averaged at RM10 million a person.
It would be interesting to know if any of the projected 40 MPs were remunerated, and if so, how the money was channelled. Specifically, were Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Dato’ Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan among those paid to run the gamut of conspiracy against Najib?
Be that as it may, the funding exerted some downward pressure on the ringgit and gave rise to several subversive groups, some of which were from UMNO and the rest, from DAP and MCA. These groups engaged in mudslinging campaigns together with a complicit media to have Najib thrown out of office together with the trash before the 31st of July 2015.
article picture 5-5
“Muhyiddin acted as the go-between for Mahathir to solicit support from the blogging community and several other BN and opposition politicians”
Perhaps it would be a good idea for authorities to freeze the accounts of all those implicated herein to put a trace on what may have been the biggest flow of stash in recent political history. It is highly likely that the MACC, all gutsy and egomaniacal over their pursuit of conspiracy, would stumble upon some dubitable balance sheets that would point to accounts of politicians and several well connected persons.
Where did the RM 600 million go?
Prior to the London meet, Mahathir had already solicited the help of Clare Rewcastle-Brown, best known as the patriarch of all that is subversive and controversial. By February 2015, the Sarawak Report’s founding editor had roped in two head honchos from the local media scene and began to work her guile in an article that was titled “The Heist of the Century.” (refer http://www.malaysia-today.net/the-macc-is-playing-pucks-with-the-rakyat-part-2/).
While Clare did work her guile to perfection and got the ball on conspiracy rolling, she wasn’t without resources. Help came in the form of two Tuns who inveigled and at times, blackmailed politicians and officials from several government agencies into a plot to topple the Prime Minister.
But that makes for another story, where I’ll tell you precisely why Mahathir needed so desperately to topple the Prime Minister.
To be continued…
