Hero or Zero?

Version with some editing by author.

Let your blood pressure rise.
The scene at the PWTC was chaotic. After explaining to the not so clever horde of UMNO youths, the adrenalin-charged youths, trampoline-tossed Najib in triumph. 
Najib was red-faced fearing that if these dangdut in mind later youths were to spread out, he will fall on the concrete parqueted floor.I was told that Najib gave them a need to know briefing and the UMNO youths did not need to know much.

Najib has scored an earth shattering victory over Dr Mahathir it seems. In celebration, the matronly looking UMNO women ululate, the nubile UMNO Puteri will put on their finest skin-tight kebayas, the old UMNO men would have counted the money given, the UMNO young men trampoline-toss Najib.

Najib is 63 years old with thousands of supporters battling out a 90 year old lion. Najib will win hands down- sure lah. No need to say lah.

But the 90-year old is Dr Mahathir- and I am surprised at myself for writing this today, is the man who can do impossible feats such as walking on political waters. With Mahathir, we must expect the unexpected.

Never for one minute must we think, that the 90 year old Mahathir entered this battle without being unprepared. He has hidden arsenals which when trained and then released at Najib, the ketum-driven UMNO youths and the decadence-induced ketua bahagians,  will cause them to abandon Najib just as they now fete Najib as if he were a hero.

The fact is, Dr Mahathir has shown to everyone, Najib is a Zero. In a society where we hold the old in reverence, Najib has only shown himself to be  a person with poor upbringing.

Because what Dr Mahathir asked and will say in the coming days, resonate well with the people. The UMNO people are 3 million strong while outside- there are 25 million people who believe Mahathir and will vote Najib and UMNO out.

The crux of the mater Mr PM- is believability. The people believe Mahathir more than they believe you. Just as the people find it hollow when he spoke of wasatiyyah and Maqasid shariyah. What can he- a person deficient in religious training until perhaps recently- do, when the Islamic studies trained author of Islam Hadhari fizzled? 
It’s a question of believability my friend.

All this while, Najib is just a pure mechanic- doing what is expected of any average minister, the job he is given. He had the personnel, the resources, the machinery, the structure already set to do a job.

Back in Pekan- as I said a long time ago, if you place the village idiot Mat Tompel in the posts Najib has been placed in- Mat Tompel could and would have delivered the same performance as Najib did. Only Pekanites know who Mat Tompel is. 
Please note  that I am not saying PM Najib is of the same standard as Mat Tompel, but that Mat Tompel can do the same job if he were given all the resources as Najib got.

What has Najib done since 2009- the cut-off year he took over from the not so clean Mr Clean?  We will write about that some other time, if the situation requires.

Since 2009, he has coined the empty slogan of 1Malaysia. He wants a 1Malaysia but hasn’t got the structure to achieve that. 1Malaysia presupposes a 1Malaysia government- which is translated in practice, so that it can be understood by the UMNO loyalists- as being a unity government.

Najib forms a government with losers- MCA with a pathetic team of 7 MPs and 11 state assemblymen earning it the moniker the 7-eleven party, MIC which has less number of elected MPs than the Malaysian Indians in DAP. 
Losers all, they can do nothing but carry the UMNO flags. 
UMNO owes its political life to the life-supporting machine of the East Malaysians- the fluid Sabah MPs and the increasingly assertive Sarawakians.

So what Najib does at the end of the tiresome sloganeering of 1 Malaysia- is just singing along while cupping his groin, with the singers at the various songs written in strained-conviction. Even the singers knew it was also a make believe environment.  They along with Najib got to show the 1 finger salute. Up yours too.

Since 2009, Najib has unleashed the economic destruction of Malaysia. Not the economic transformation. When he came in as PM- he declared to the MOF people – he wants to sell off government assets. Read that- as ripping off the nation.

He has caused to be created- a string of special business entities, designed to suck money out. He has also caused the financial scandals he inherited to be written off, simply because, as it now turns out, so that he can justify the present economic mess and plunder.

The RM12 billion scandal ridden PKFZ is replaced with the RM49 billion liability in the form of the infamous 1MDB. buy shelf-life ending IPPs for billions, Pay jho Low USD700 million, paid the Arabs here and there USD20 million, and placed the billions in God knows where.
And Najib cant explain the simplest of questions as to why, government money cannot be deposited in local banks. unless someone else has got a lien on the money or its laundered money. The Chinese ahlongs can do better financial management la.

Then we have FGV which has only left the 112, 635 felda settlers gawking in disbelief and later cry in anguish; we have the pembinaan BLT which was supposed to build Police quarters and stations, we have pembinaan PFI, we have SRC and we have so many others.

These my dear readers are the blood sucking instruments the great transformer has created. And he is trampoline-tossed for that.

Now, let us wait, for the calculated response of the 90 year old. 
We caya lu lah Doc.

Tuan S'mkl, salaam, tq for your spirited write-up, however even as you showered scorn on the p.m.'s supporters, you have targeted mostly the mentally challenged sections of society. There are however many who are reasonably literate with a modicum of education such as high court judges, university professors, media bosses, heads of the armed forces, many muftis and 'heads' of religion and such who would give their right arms to see the status quo and power structures persist, nay even prevail.

Dato, you have done it again. Your recent postings are spot on on many issues and the most interesting ones on the Najib/Mahathir feud are not to be missed.
Najib is fighting a losing battle. We know how crafty Mahathir is. He would not throw a brick at his enemy without preparing for the other guy to throw something back at him. And the more Najib reacts, the more aggressive the old man will response. It's a losing battle from the start for Najib. Mahathir knows about the Altantuya murder than he lets on. Its his trump card.
Notice that apart from the recent passive TV show, Najib hasn't touch the old guy. Why? Najib downfall is imminent.

If this is South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Afica, Thailand, Philippines etc... you know how thieving leaders would be dealt with.
Najib has destroyed Malaysia. Cost of houses has tripled since 2009. Malaysia has achieved the high cost nation status.Ringgit has touch 3.80 to USD with the help of soros.

This scandal ridden PM is open to being blackmailed.He has been blackmailed by Singapore.Everything he did has been to the interest of Singapore.
All Money crazy UMNO leaders like that Lebai pulut kuning from Kedah is very eager to cash in.

Whatever one may say, if BN wins Rompin, Najib will go to town with the victory as though it is an endorsement of his premiership.
And Malay(sian) voters can be real stupid when they see RM, RM, RM.
That's what Najib will do. The Malays will forget 1MDB or Altantuya and Sirul.

Ahmad Maslan-the skimmer of Felda,s Contractors, Lebai Tempoyak and most in the Najib circus, are nothing but reflect Najibs low IQ and EQ.

Looks like UMNO's Najib's faction is hitting Doc M below the belt, by attacking the fruit of his loins. at the moment seesm to be Mukhriz,but when they start grappling in the mud ,don't be surprise if the other 2 Mirzan/Mokhzani get slung by the mud. Getting personal.When you attack the man's family,his son in question, one wonders whether TDM's pride and super ego will let it slide so easy. Will he back off ? When his pride as the elder statesman is being undermined ,that will mean he has to swallow his ego by conceding defeat to Najib. Can TDM afford to lose to Najib? If that happens , he may never be able to recover from the humiliation and lost of face.
Or will TDM do the same strategy,hit below the belt, hentam lower levels in UMNO and work his way

I pray to God that you're right, that Tun M has a trump card up his sleeve. Otherwise, it looks like it's all over.

It's ok, it will be one for BN in Rompin and one for PR in Permatang Pauh.

I always think that only Anwar can take on Mahathir if he is Prime Minister. That's why by hook or by crook Mahathir wants Anwar behind bars. And he managed to get Najib to do the job for him.

Najib is definitely no match for Mahathir.

I guess at the end of the day, the one who has the greatest war chest will win! Meanwhile, sit tight and watch for more mud-slinging from both sides.

Zero. He doesn't have the grace or class to go when found wanting at the highest level and facing accusations of being implicated in murder and calculated, massive financial fraud.

They'll have to drag him out kicking and screaming.

PM's "chief of staff" is no longer around, gone to his happy hunting grounds. The misconception is that JJ was a brilliant strategist, but look at the results. PM is no better off despite all the hip slogans, presidential campaigns and all the money thrown in. He seems to be worse off. But without this right hand personal aide, PM is truly lost.

Wow, these UMNO people just love scandals judging by the way they cheer their scandal laden Najib hero. To us sane Malaysians, they are really award winning sitcom casts who do not know what is right and wrong. The PAS grassroots people (not Hadi of course) must be horrified of the possibility of having to work with them.

By having all these sitcom shows, Najib is trying hard to give out the message that he still have the support in order to ward off those people who is waiting to show their cards and dump him.

I'm now waiting for Dr. M to throw a feather into the camel's back. It would then lead to a very nice orgasmic ending even though I would love Najib to stay on as PM so that Pakatan can easily take over Putrajaya.

Either way, it will be a big win-win for the Rakyat.

Whenever I go through the mainstream media,it's the opposition that gets the blame.1MDB loosing billions Ringgit has got to do with bad management.Issues like this if not solved will certainly effect investor confidence in the long term.

This rumours going around on social media and in the coffeeshops about the helicopter explosion being one of the chess move by one side against the other - it's scary lah Dato...

GST VS GSB 15 April 2015 at 18:32  

Dato '

Your writing about Najib is so sharp and spicy. I laughed myself to read it. As someone who almost closed to Najib one time, you definitely know who is PM Najib right?. Video of your past lecture you on youtube might definitely can help people become more familiar with the background of PM Najib. But do Najib and UMNO more Islamic if he and his party supports hudud proposed by PAS compared Tun M which has clearly rejected hudud?. PAS now need Najib more, not Tun M. What do you think Dato?.
