Optimus Prime and his Autobot Transformers




What Najib has done is this. (1) Ask Mukhriz to go to the corner, play by yourself and be a good boy. While there, please ask your father to zip up. That was why Mukhriz was made the MB of Kedah. So that he stays away from the epicentre and Old Mahathir will hold him by the hand to guide. Let’s see Kedah apply Mahathir-nomics there.
The fault lies with PAS’s ustaz Azizan. He became careless with whom he became friends with. Of that, I am not going to elaborate.
Secondly, if Bentong Kali were alive, he will be given a cabinet post by Najib. Poor UMNO people- they see nothing wrong with their leader cavorting with the Indian version of Perkasa. By now, people should already know that Najib is a plotter and a master of intrigue and shadow play. The only people saying that this cabinet is a transformation cabinet are Najib and his docile Press. We are not saying that, because we can see the game plan.
Najib’s vision doesn’t extend much beyond trying to stay on as UMNO president. The facts, if the retired judge wants to hear are that Najib performed worse than Pak Lah and Najib lost Malay support. The fact is, my dear judge, Najib’s government is a minority government.
UMNO cheated its way through and UMNO buys itself support. In Raub, two days before the 5th of May my opponent who was already been given possibly RM2 million to defend Raub, called the Pahang MB and asked for additional funds. The MB asked- weren’t you given money already. Khai Mun must have spluttered some excuses and the MB finally conceded. We know the story – only a small portion of the money was distributed, the bulk just as the others did, was pocketed. Khai MUn and UMNO thought they could buy allegiance and conscience. If some UMNO members or supporters have not supported me, I could not have won Raub.
The fate of the Malays is never tied to thievery and corruption. The fate of the UMNO warlords and Minister on the other hand is. As a result, the UMNO system produced mediocre and half past six characters. Would the presence of these characters carry the transformation vision of Najib? He must be hallucinating!
Would anyone want to study under Zahid Hamidi who has a Ph.D. whose puerile thinking is expressed through his asking those who are unhappy with Malaysia, emigrate? That to me sounds like the thinking of a primary 6 student and hence puerile. His PhD has not done him any good and the University that conferred that degree to him hasn’t done justice to its reputation.
Confound the first past the post system. More people voted against Najib than for Najib. More Malays voted against UMNO than for UMNO. 3.6 million Malays rejected UMNO than the 3 million who voted. So don’t go on blaming others trying to conceal your failure. As one late UMNO friend from Kampung Ubai in Pekan like to say- Najib has failed! Dia fail! Fail!
The leader of HIndraf starved himself to near death in pursuit of a less than noble cause. He was aiming for a position in the government. He went down to Gelang Patah to denounce Kit Siang but the people down there knew he came to auta and temberang. The inclusion of so many Malaysian Indians in cabinet, does not make Najib’s cabinet a transforming one. It looks like cabinet that is screwing around with people’s emotions.
The only people saying this is a transforming cabinet come from the media industry controlled and owned by UMNO. The images and myths created about these personalities in the cabinet are all manufactured by the media. Najib’s image as we all know is cultivated by the media.
Najib has followed one principle throughout.- as with his notion of winnable candidates, the ministers who occupied the most important portfolios are his men. That will come in handy if he were to be challenged in the coming UMNO party elections. Hence the Home affairs minister ( who has power to jail anyone) and the Minister of Defence are his loyalists. Cousin HIsham will continue to cover up Najib’s spending track record when Najib was a long time Defence Minister. Zaid ‘Himmler’ Hamidi will look after the Home Affairs Ministry where he will be able to offer his solution to the social problem faced by this country. As a precursor to the transforming ideas coming from a barren mind, he has stated that those who are not happy with this country, can emigrate. Malaysia fortunately is not owned by him or UMNO.
A long time ago, a senior minister said that the good Chinese is a dead Chinese. The modern equivalent to that macabre observation is a good Chinese is an uncle tom Chinese, ready and willing to serve their UMNO master. The good Chinese is the MCA Chinese ready and willing to play lapdog to UMNO’s every wish and fancy. Hence the MCA Chinese and any Chinese who unashamedly debased himself to UMNO, is as good as dead. The good Chinese today are those who subscribed to UMNO’s master servant mentality.

They're so hard-pressed to find token chinese now that their MCA lap-dogs are too embarrassed to take up any position in government seeing as the chinese community has rejected them.

I agree that the reason for UMNO winning Kedah is the failure of Azizan. He was quite arrogant not only with his colleagues in Kedah but with the PAS and PR leadership too.

As for Mukhriz, Najib had wanted to sideline him by sending him to DUN not expecting UMNO/BN could actually recapture Kedah. Now its going to be interesting as Mukhriz's image as MB will be boosted within UMNO. Mahathir will have it easier to promote this son of him to vice president and later deputy president after Najib is pressured to step down the Pak Lah way.

dato;

transformer is basically shape-shifting.

changing shape and sizes but the same underlying material/substance or lack of it.

Are you sure that their MCA lap-dogs are too embarrassed to take up any position in government?

For me they orchestrated another drama to cheat the Malays again, aren't they?

Pok Li 17 May 2013 10:41...

For yes it is if it just one among many others significant reason...

In other words, it is only the reason to cover many others significant reasons.

Dato,now that the storm has passed and everyone has settled down lets ponder what went wrong.

Najib is blaming the Chinese for Umno/BN faring so badly.But who do we blame for PR doing so badly.Afterall it was their election to lose,as their had the momemtum and people's power on their side.

Over confidence and greed of power sank the PR.PKR not wanting to allow the PR friendly Sabahans to take on Umnmo/BN one on one,causing a free for all.Contesting so many seats when they cannot look after their own backyard.Even Anwar's majority has dropped tremendously.And Permatang Pauh was suppose to be Anwar territory.

And PAS screaming hudud down to the wire.Hudud was suppose to be for CSL to scream as he has nothing else to shout about.

Only the DAP was the only better organised and disclipined party.If not for some DAP leaders in Perak and Johore,the PR would have won a few more seats.

Had PKR concentrated on contesting less seats,they would have ended up winning more seats.That is if they had concentrated their manpower on protecting the seats they last won and on a few more winnable seats.

What is the point of holding protest rallies now.Having crowds of 50k-100k screaming Umno/BN cheated in the elections.Even Mahathir did not deny giving IC's to foreigners.So it is an open secret that there will be cheating in the tightly contested seats.Why not mobilise the 50k-100k crowd showing up in protest rallies to monitor the elections and catch the phamtoms.Now after the fact there is no point crying wolf anymore.

Dear Sakmongkol

Transformation through a transformational cabinet? No such thing will happen. On the night of the results Najib laid the blame of BN’s less than desired result on the so-called Chinese tsunami, when in fact it was a Malaysian urban revolt against a corrupt and inept government. If the number 1 man misreads the situation so badly, can we hope for real political changes to emerge?

Now we have one of his key transformational minister – Zahid – telling dissenting Malaysians to emigrate if they don’t like the electoral system. How can any responsible politician, let alone a public servant (that’s what ministers are; they are not our masters) spewing such nonsense. 51% of the people voted against BN, and theoretically 5.6 million Malaysians of all races said no to BN. Is Zahid telling 5.6 million Malaysians and their families to get lost? If they really did, this country would suddenly be half empty especially the cities and towns. Only the kampongs and Felda plantations would remain populated.

Did Najib, who talked about reconciliation, slap Zahid down? No, not a word. Instead we have this new Sports and Youth minister defending him, saying this is Zahid’s personal opinion, that is, it doesn’t really count, and is therefore not government policy. Well, this contradicts what the boss said in his first cabinet meeting. Najib had told the new crew that what each minister does or says binds the entire cabinet, and so they had to be careful when speaking to the media. But on day 2, Zahid torpedoed this new policy. May be that’s why this incompetent minister was moved from Defence; you can’t have guys shooting their colleagues accidentally. The dreadful thought is that this Zahid fella is now in charge of the Police, and he can really harm us if that is his attitude to dissent. Bossing the army he was divorced from the public and could do less harm.

A word on reconciliation. What is this all about? The position of PR on corruption, cronyism, racism, and people welfare are not reconcilable with the policies and practices of UMNO/BN. It is not a question of Chinese reconciling with Malays as Najib and Khairy seem to think. GE13 was never about the Chinese versus the Malays.

So, transformation remains a lost hope. Realistically, it will be business as usual.

Sak,
Isn't it too late that PAS has realised that the person to helm Kedah should be Mahfuz Omar. Well, never mind, I do hope that you can remain in Pahang to strenghten DAP machinery
Don't sack Koh Boon Heng. Bring him back. That Fauzi fella is another tyrant. Perhaps, because PKR incompetent that leads to Pakatan Pahang unable to capture more seats & let alone take over Pahang
Convince Aspan to take lead in NS. Zaril on the other hand to work on to bring in calibre malays into DAP Kedah while strenghtening DAP Penang. I felt it's very unhealthy to continue to rely on PAS & PKR for melayu votes.
It's really time to threaten PAS. Either you give up your entire seats in Penang, or give up some kedah seats
