The Superhumans of Malaysia: From SuperMah to Optimus Najib Prime- 1

We have 2 super humans in Malaysia. Each is said to be able to give guarantees. In the case of Mahathir he guaranteed the loan given to Tajudin Ramli to acquire 32% share of MAS in 1992. The guarantee was in the form of an overriding indemnity provision to Tajudin Ramli protecting him from losses should he mess up the acquisition.
Now, that is the type of captain needed by Mahathir to drive his NEP. Daulat Mahathir!
The current PM can also give guarantees. He can guarantee when FGVH lists, the returns to Felda settlers will be assured. That means, while Mahathir can walk on water, the current PM is given the attribute of someone who can control the free market. Adam smith, the man accepted by many as the Father of the science of Economics wrote about the invisible hand that regulates free enterprise. He got the name wrong. The invisible hand is Najib Razak. That superhuman attribute was given to Najib Razak by Chairman Isa.
Let’s talk about the first, first.
He is a former PM of Malaysia who, like Jesus can walk on water. That’s a description of his ability of doing the unthinkable, not of saintly qualities. He has come up with many conflicting advices on many occasions recently. He once suggested that UMNO is rotten the core. And of late he has been singing praises about UMNO. Is he an UMNO member? Has his membership been approved? If it has, it’s bewildering the MSM did not carry the story. Didn’t he leave UMNO during the PMship of Pak Lah and later applied to rejoin the party?
What many people fail to realize, is that Mahathir is a despotic ruler. He eschews democracy. He uses democracy to achieve the position of power. Once ensconced in power, Mahathir pursued only one aim- conferment of privileges unto himself. His remarks about the futility of questioning what happened to MAS in the 1990s, is symptomatic of the man, pursuing only one goal in his life- the entrenchment of privileges.
Privilege itself is anathema to democracy which is essentially about egalitarianism. Mahathir doesn’t want anything egalitarian.  He wants privileges in the form of selected captains of industry, in the form of protection of his children and friends doing business and so forth. The most damaging to us, is his insistence now, to perpetuate the rule of a corrupt and deceitful government lead by a corrupt UMNO and BN.
Look- MCA is said to be worth RM 4 billion. How on earth can a political party be worth RM 4 billion? It can only be that if it has tentacles in business. Political parties don’t do business. If they do, and like MCA which is worth that, they must have achieved that by the abuse of power and trust.
My point then is, if MCA which is a just a sidekick to UMNO is worth RM 4 billion; UMNO must be worth 5 times that. Let’s say RM 20 billion. How does it become that? Just like MCA it must have achieved that financial clout by having businesses which it acquired by using powers given to it by the rakyat. What do you call that? It’s called abuse of power, simpliciter. Naked abuse of power.
In one luncheon with ex ministers, Mahathir declared the government is corrupt from top to bottom. When he spoke of that kind of corruption, he included the current PM. Now he says good things about the government which is corrupt from top to bottom.
At other times, he suggested that voters elect on the basis of candidates personal qualities. Reject the party he says. That is essentially correct when you have characterized the ruling party as full of corrupt people. Then he did a series of volte face- he declared people must vote for the party irrespective of the quality of people who make it up.
How can a party not be corrupt if the people making it up are corrupt? Just why should we support a government that is corrupt from top to bottom?
So if you asked me whether Najib can reform UMNO, the answer is no. How can he dismantle a system on which UMNO survives? That will be the end of UMNO civilization. UMNO’s civilization lives on a system of tender-preneurship. Every level of UMNO leadership looks up at the party being able to give out tenders so that UMNO is worth at least 5 times the worth of MCA. If MCA is rotten, UMNO should also be 5 times as rotten.
Why is Dr Mahathir who is well into his 80s which theoretically speaking, places him in the twilight zone, still at it? It’s as though he is the parallel PM running this country. The fact that he does what he does quite consistently, suggests, the current PM despite his social media for popularity savvy-ness, requires hand-holding to lead this nation. That suggests despite the external popularity of Najib, he lacks substance to run this country. And according to the Oracle of S Putera, Najib is lost on how to run the country. He is long in form, but very short in substance.

The old Mahakutty still thinks the whole country owe him a living...
Lets pray he will live long enough to answer his crimes like those yesteryears of Suharto and Marcos!
Both holding hands to lead the country is too polite from you! It looks Mahakutty is squeezing his nuts and pulling this spineless Najib along..

What has been conveyed is indeed very intriguing. My take is that if PKR were to take over the government, it would be the only way UMNO can be revamped viv a vis the revelation of all the wrong doings of the high ended UMNO leadersand corrective actions from then on. I can see a lot of detriments on the side of these people if PKR comes to power as the whole web that interlock each other in the world of personal enrichments would collapse like the fall of the mighty Highland Towers. It would be good to start afresh for the sake of the Malay dignity but will they be willing to sacrifice. So far, the answer has been metaphorically describe as "over our dead bodies" through the "Anwar must be disposed off at all cost".

While it pains me to see UMNO be whipped good and proper, its high time that this has to be done to rid the party of the cancerous parasites that has grossly dominated to party skewing it off tangent.

Lets pray he lives long enough until the PR govermment rules and put him into open trial and let him answer the charges.

Dato you can also add that he once called Pak Lah's government, which included Najib, as a half past six government. Other than Pak Lah, all other half past six characters are still in government.

Dear Sakmongkol

“Why is Dr Mahathir who is well into his 80s which theoretically speaking, places him in the twilight zone, still at it?”

Well, you answered the question yourself: Najib is useless. That’s in fact what Mahathir is signaling by constantly being in the news making statements of all sorts, trespassing on to the domain of the PM. But Najib is elegantly silent. He seems to have nothing to say as major events unfold across the country. If a visitor had dropped by from Mars, it would have concluded that the legislative CEO is an old, senile man called Mahathir, not that pink-lipped, smiling, garland-draped man from Pekan.

What Mahathir is doing to Najib is really no different from what he did to the sleepy PM, his immediate successor. In his demented mind, no one can be as good as him. If he ever made a mistake, it was to have stepped down too early. He would have made a good dictator in the image of those just deposed in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, and the one about to topple in Syria.

We know what those dictators did to their respective countries. We don’t want to go down those routes. We seek an orderly change to a more peaceful and brighter future. But that future can only emerge if we get rid of this eunuch called Najib Razak. By the way, if Mahathir thinks Najib is stupid, he really is not far off the mark. What do you think of someone who says the MACC can be made independent only if BN gets its 2/3 in Parliament? UMNO/BN will stay corrupt and unpunished unless the people strengthens their ability to remain unaccountable.

Dato,super human Dr Mahathir,the man who can walk and also runs on water.He is also the reason Malaysia is in a mess today.Mass corruption and cronism.So the man who walks on water also plays with fire too.

MCA is worth 4 billion ringgit and big bro Umno is worth 20 billion ringgit.When Dr Mahathir was PM,his crony the Chinaman and Dr Mahathir's frontman Vincent Tan just moved down from Johore,if I am not wrong.He was renting a terrace house off old Klang Road.

When he first came down from Johore he was driving an old Benz.Later he moved away.Then I heard that he was a front for the master politician.Five or six years later I saw him on the streets of KL.He must have at least half a dozen bodyguards with him.

If Vincent Tan is worth 4-5 billion then Daim should be worth more than him.And the master politician who can walk on water is worth at least 10 times more than them.

Now every ministers and their cronies from the ruling BN thinks that it is their birth right to loot as much as possible like there will be no tomorrow.After GE 13th if Umno/BN is still voted back into power,Malaysia will be next on line to join the PIGG'S family.

Why are we paying attention to this old goat????

The greatest tragedy that befalls this great and most blessed country is the stupidity or is it naiveness of its people,who consistently support a government that is ripping them off big time. Until the people wake up from their slumber, this country will continue to slip down the abyss, until it reaches a point of no return. then all of us will suffer.

I just wonder, when will the rakyat finally realized their own folly.

There is a saying in Chinese which loosely translated means, "The net of justice is loose but not porous." You reap what you sow. Some people seem to be able to get away even with murder, but I believe ultimately there will be pay back time, in due course, in some other forms.

The general malay mind is subservient due to generations of feudal injection.Mahathir uses this as his tool to evoke the sense of fear and gratitude among peasant malays.
He is the adviser to PROTON and PETRONAS. The Federal cabinet is still full of his appointees.

Kencana was a contractor to PETONAS, now a concession holder sharing profits.
He asked Khazanah to sell PROTON to DRB.
Today Bank Islam announced profit of 567 MILLION. However just two weeks ago Bank Islam filed a notice to High Court to write off 500 Million from its books brought forward since 2003. This was filed quietly without any fanfare.To-date Bank Islam has not disclosed the loan defaulters.
Tajudin Ramli is lucky because all the creditors have deleted the bad loans. Malaysia Incorporated ala Mahathir.

Mahathir early leadership bring fresh air and new perspective towards Malaysia development.He runs very fast towards bringing Malaysia to be the modern and developed nation that he hope to be. I know he has some grudge agains Mat Salleh in Britain who thought that Malaysian live on top of tree and he build KLCC to prove that if it is true,then Malaysia has the tallest tree in the world to live in.

His mistake is his knowledge of how rich Malaysia is at that time and did not fully realize how many poor Malaysian.What the four PM before him has been saving for a steady progress and beneficial to all has been squandered most of it during his administration in his quest to create fake, rapid and overzealous development, shared only between a few.He resign because he could not bear the fact that if he lives long enough,people will know that he will never achieve Vision 2020 as Malaysia will be bankrupted upon reaching the magical year of 2020.

A renown judge once was quoted as saying. "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely." If the rakyat do not wake up from their slumber and still give Najib two thirds majority in Parliament, they will soon realize that the whole country is plundered altogether.

Mamak Kutty still thinks that he rules the whole country. He suffers from amnesia which will soon develop into dementia and later to Alzheimer's Disease. That's why we call him Apa Nama.

Dato Sak
I agree with Anom 10.11. Lets just pray that this cunning mamak will live long enough ( Arwah Ustz. Fadzil Noor did pray to that) to answer for his wrong doings in this world and crimes to the Malaysian.It is useless to debate with this twisted and possibly mentally sick butcher Memali pesents.
Best wishes

Sir, all I can comment is that I salute you on your thoughts and analysis. Whether previously as an UMNO member or now as a DAP member, yours is the first blog I read, when I come home from work, after dinner with family. I wish I can do more, like you, but I`m one of those rakyat who has a 12-15 hour day job to cari makan, so, very little time to be a blogger or activist. But I can vote and I will. And your blog writings have helped me to decide who I will vote for.

Salam Sir.

Ah Jib Gor is MM's puppet cuz MM has both pockets full of Jib's dirt.MM is the C.E.O of Msian's economic.Jib only endorsed it.

When BNs' policies benefited his family,BN is good.If not,BN is rotten.Surely he holds the keys to every cupboard of BNs' minister skeletons cuz they are really scared of him.He had tied them all to be his servants.

The MM's era till now is the darkest period of Malaysia's history.Praying and hoping the majority of the rakyat will kicked BN out of Putrajaya and bring back the sunshine we once had.

"Ahmad Maslan said the listing exercise will raise RM 21 billion."

I think he said the market capitalisation will be $21 billion i.e. total no. of shares x KLSE value per share after listing.

Thta's not the same thing as saying the listing will raise $21 billion. Not unless they get EPF & PNB/Khazanah to buy over all the shares! God forbid.

we are all of 1 Race, the Human Race

setuju dgn artikel tuan....mahathir beri isyarat nak jadi PM semula.


> Hari ini pertembungan politik ialah pertembungan politik antara kerakusan Dr. M dengan ketelusan Anwar Ibrahim. Kali ini terutamanya selepas tsunami politik 8 Mac 2008, lapangan politik bukan pertempuran Anwar-Pak Lah atau Anwar-Najib, tetapi adalah pertarungan politik Anwar-Mahathir.

Sanggahan-sanggahan Mahathir terhadap kepimpinan UMNO masa kini menguatkan gambaran kepada ahli UMNO bahawa mereka perlu kembalinya Mahathir sebagai PM.
Mahathir sedang menunggu.......

Saya tidak fikir Dr M mahu kembali semula.Pertembungan tetap antara BN dan PR.Mantan PM hanya memberi pandangan sahaja.PRU 13 akan menenukan siapa yang rakyat pilih.Jadi undilah siapa yang anda fikir boleh membawa kita kearah yang lebih baik.
Tidak ada bukti Dr M mahu. meneraju negara.Salam
