The ministry of labour trafficking?

1. A number of aides to minister Sivakumar have been interrogated by sprm .

2. These series of interrogation is in relation to these officers allegedly acting as middlemen collecting fees from agencies bringing in foreign workers, notably Bangladeshi workers.

3. There is a strong presumption of guilt on the part of these officers, as minister Siva saw it fit to suspend them.

4. There are no court charges against them. Yet the minister saw it fit to suspend them. that could only suggests that the minister thinks they are guilty as alleged .

5. While on the subject of immigrant workers, a few months ago, the PM publicly talked about this issue .

6. He was lamenting that it was unconscionable that an immigrant is fleeced up to 20k to work in malaysia. his emphaty towards the immigrant is very laudable.

7. For that empathy, I am inclined to rhyme a song chanted by Oxford students thus:-

8. Row row your boat
Gently down the stream
Belts off, pants down
Isn't life a scream!

9. The PMs empathy which was vociferously and volubly said was indeed laudable. But as Lenin asked a long time ago, what is to done?

10. If the PM is serious about eradicating corruption as regards the immigrant workers, why doesn't he outlaw the usage of agencies and middlemen by the immigration department?

11. Cut off the main source of corruption. Then redeploy immigration staff to process immigrant workers. Or are they too busy collecting luxury cars?

12. If the immigration department still insists on using 3rd parties to process it workers, select 2 or 3 on open tender basis. Evaluate what are some of the benefits that can be gotten by the immigration department from them, legally .

13. Now back to the Siva saga. I can't reconcile one thing. No court charges are brought against the 3 officers of the HRM, yet the minister saw it fit to suspend them.

14. If the officers are suspended on account of being investigated by sprm, this begs one question.

15. Minister Siva himself was questioned by the sprm on a few occasions. On the same reasoning, he ought to also go on leave.

16. A few DAP luminaries have defended Sivakumar. That is understandable. I, however choose to suspend judgement until the sprm has completed it's investigations.

17. I take a very different view from them, unfortunately. I think minister Siva SHOULD go on leave, for the following reasons.

18. He should go on leave not because that's an admission he's guilty but:-
A. Show that Dap people are made of sterner moral stuff
B.use his leave as a challenge to dumbass Zahid, who doesn't know how to respond.

19. Going on leave poses a challenge to Zahid who ought to respond appropriately.

20. If Zahid is aware of toynbee's challenge and response hypothesis, he has stronger reasons to go on leave . If Siva goes on leave on account of only being investigated by sprm, Zahid who has court charges should also take leave ..

21. Or is Zahid hiding behind the protective clause of hak istimewa melayu dan BUMIPUTRA or hiding behind the overused phrase of innocent until found guilty?

22. And so he clings on stubbornly to his post disregarding any moral compunctions/

23. We would have expected that a person who has massive doubts cast upon his integrity would do the honourable thing and go on leave. But then, Zahid, where got honour?

24. So, go on leave minister Siva not because you are guilty but to show dap people are made of sterner stuff and are principled . Also to serve as a mock and rapier sharp sarcasm to the thick skulled Javanese neanderthal and others in the court cluster .

25. I hear what is talked about by the pasir gudang mp. He has vociferously and intensely suggested that Siva go on leave. He cited collective responsibility as a chief reason and blah blah.

26. His reasonings are indeed persuasive, but I don't see the same intensity and vociferous -ness directed at Zahid. Or if has spoken about it initially, the heat has dissipated from the chicken shit!

Clemency and pardon for a convict- in- chief.

1. An umno leader from batu pahat, prayed in front of the holy kaabah. He prayed for the release of ds Najib.

2. He can pray for whatever he wants. But don't be angry if there are people who pray and entreat God to punish the thieving felon . Comprende?

3. That's typical umnoist behavior. When they are in trouble, they think God will only help them.

4. That's the trouble with umno people. They think God is an umno member just as the republicans think God is a republican.

5. Hence, they presume that their doas and supplications will be granted by God.

6. Most fair God does not distinguish between the dia of a plebian and an a patrician . The doa of a fuad zarkashi is not given more weight over the doa of a wak sontoloyo or wak jarwo.

7. Fuad may doa for the release of the convict while wak sontoloyo is praying the convict pays for his sins.

8. Umno doesn't have complete faith in doa , that's why it asks it's members to sign a petition asking clemency from the king.

9. But there's a glitch. The letter or warkah asking for clemency has not been sent yet by Najibs lawyer, prison lawyer or a lawyer representing Najibs family.

10. That's a bloody faux pas, gaucherie or peccadillo on the part of umno. Because of the indiscretion, umno enters the prn in the 6 states, as the weak link.

11. The faux pas is a poor reflection of umno.
It does not respect the law
# it will bend the law until it suits them
# it will use political pressure to subvert the law
# opens up umno to all form of criticisms imaginable.

12. So, it's not a good strategy for PH to sacrifice seats in all the 6 states. In fact, PH needs to limit umno . But as usual, umno will act as if the tea spoon is bigger than the dinner spoon .

13. Meanwhile , convict Najib is behaving like a privileged prisoner. Special rights of BUMIPUTRAs perhaps? He goes to court not handcuffed and escorted by a fleet of cars and a phalanx of state paid escorts.
He is seen carrying a hand phone
He wears zegna or Gucci suits instead of prison garb .

14. Hey,sob sob other daddies are also spending raya with fellow inmates.

15. It is a demonic and fiendish evil move by umno to circumvent the law .

16. So I must say sorry beforehand as I shan't leave this subject of clemency and pardon to the Agong alone. The issue is of paramount importance and it's significance wide ranging, that I shall be remiss in my duty as a loyal subject if I do not give my opinion on it.

17. Whether my opinion is listened to by HM is immaterial. I am one of the many conscientious objectors who wants Najib to pay for his crime .

18. Clemency and pardon ought not to be given cavalierly. The issue must be studies meticulously,all round. It's not like playing polo at padang polo or plucking pauh in permatang pauh or eating temosa raja.

19. Let me give you the irrational reasons first. Why Najib alone? Why not pardon too the rapists, murderers and the incestuous convicts?

20. Najib raped and murdered this country by his corruption. He is the same class as the other degenerates .

21. Will the pardon if given, also cover possible future convictions? There is a strong possibility that Najib may also be convicted for 1MDB offences. Let's not kid ourselves. The tributaries are polluted, it's impossible for the main river to be pristine.

22. The other supporting actors in the 1MDB scandal have all been convicted, it's impossible to believe Najib will be exonerated. Hence to give the felon-in-chief a pardon, is like giving him a carte blanche to murder .

23. We must not allow umno, Zahid and Najib to make a mockery over the law. If we believe that no one is above the law, it must also mean to refrain from doing anything that prejudices the law .

24. Asking for a royal pardon is therefore inimical to the concept that no one is above the law. On the other hand, it sends the message of ' break the law, ask for pardon later '.

25. Asking for a royal pardon is not just asking for a relief of one person. Imagine the damage and hurt it does to the country, it's reputation, her good name, the trust to it, national amour propre and the country's value system.

26. The country will be seen as having no honor, it has no dignity, no respect for universally accepted values system. It is the refuge and den for crooks .

27. Is Najib the felon in chief bigger than Malaysia, or is Malaysia worth fighting for. Shall we abandon this country for a crook?

28. Consider also the damage done to the King, PM and the judiciary. All these people and institution will not be unscarred.

29. The king will no longer be seen as a fountainhead of justice. He no longer protects the weak and the powerless. He will be seen as protector of the privileged and the rich. He is seen as a compromiser , siding with the secondhanders ie those who compromised for convenience. All these caused by red lips Najib.

30. We are looking at the king to protect the good name and reputation of the country. Malaysia is a law abiding country and not a haven for privileged crooks

31 . People are looking at the king to affirm what is right and not to bend the law for the pleasure of one person.

32. The PM's reputation will also take a bad beating. It's good to know he's in the pardons board. He is expected to do what is right .

33. And the right thing to do is to uphold the sanctity of the law. If he were to support clemency, it could only mean he has sacrificed the law for political gains. Or it could mean, umno has blackmail him into capitulation.

34. I hope, he has not forgotten the fact that he himself had to spend a long time in prison before getting pardoned.

35. Ignore the opinions of the council of kangkung professors. They are a fraternity of sexual perverts wanting recognition for something. Najib is a bane for the unity government. It's wrong to say that Najib is popular among the malays - perhaps popular only among the sex starved ignorant makciks, ah sos and achis . There are enough God fearing malays who will support the unity government.

36. The judiciary too will be scandalised. After conscientiously rebuilding it's image after being butchered by Mahathir in the judicial crisis in 1988 I think, the judiciary will be seen as being buyable.

37. It has sold the scales of justice for political expediency

38. The judiciary will lose its credibility and along with it, the trust of the people in the judiciary. That will happen if it bends over to rescue one crook. When it bends over, it will get a good shagging.

39. Seems to me, the basis for clemency and pardon is based on 2 faulty premises. One is the one dissenting judgement over 4 concurring judgements. Is 1 bigger than 4? Is that BUMIPUTRA math? Second, is the conspiratorial findings of sprm when it acted ultra vires, when investigation Mr justice nazlan.

40. Judge Rahman sebli must have rue the day he made the dissenting judgement. To eventually know that his judgement is going to be mischievously used to get a pardon for a bloody crook.

41. I think, at the high and apex courts, a dissenting judgement is just a difference in opinions. We should not read it as more than it deserves.

42. In my opinion, the findings of sprm are essentially wrong. It was supposed to investigate corruption on the part of justice nazlan. Where is it?

43. In particular, the case of the rm 1 million . Instead it made findings on the judge code of ethics which it is not authorized to and is no authority on. It has therefore acted ultra vires.

44. So, minister Azalina aids and abets an ultra vires conduct, when writing a letter to Najibs lawyers.

45. That would give the impression than an umno minister is conspiring with sprm to get Najib pardoned. The PM and the judiciary must stand firm against this unholy alliance .

46. The people of Malaysia must be mad to condone and countenance the pardoning of a crook . As to why they are afflicted by this mad cow disease , I can only conjecture.

47. Many years ago, I read a book edited by the famous Indonesian literati, hb jassin it's a book called langit Kian mendung .

48. It contained the short story langit kian mendung by a fictitious writer, kipandjikusmin.

49. The short story caused a religious furore much like kassim Ahmad's sidang ruh

50. A group of angels petitioned God to 'turba' or turun bawah to earth, particularly a place called Malaysia.

51. The wanted to research because of late, few Malaysians qualify for heaven. So they rode the celestial buraq down to earth .

52. Suddenly, kaboom! they crashed against an American satellite but were catapulted to Malaysia.

53. There, they observed people have gone mad and drunk because of ridiculous fatwas from mullahs from a religious party and the web of deceit spun by Najib and his minions.

54. So, dear readers, I can't in all conscience leave the issue to the Agong alone. He needs all the opinions he can get, including from a lowly person such as I.

55. There you are, I have given my opinion. A pardon should not be given to Ali babavum Najib.

56. Whether you agree or not with my opinion, is no skin off my nose.

57. As to my opinion, I would like to paraphrase Christopher Hitchens. My own opinion is enough for me .And I reserve the right to have it defended against any consensus, any majority, anytime, anywhere,any place.

58. And if anyone doesn't like it, pick a ticket, que up and kiss my ass.


Monday 10 April 2023

M's reactionary and revisionist politics.

1. In this country, we don't mindlessly and thoughtlessly jail a 98 year old man. So, Dr Mahathir can ventilate all sorts of diatribes against Anwar. I am afraid, despite the urgings of some people, Dr Mahathir will not be charged under sedition laws.

2. Dr Jekyll Mahathir was to unveil a Malay proclamation, not unlike the previous Malay dignity proclamation. It was scuttled by pm Anwar, as it should be .

3. The preservation of a harmonious and multiracial society is paramount. Any that's to it, even from a pesky old man, must be extinguished. PM Anwar did the right thing.

4. Mahathirs constant bitching of Anwars government is personal in nature. The truth comes out in the end. Mahathir seems to nitpicking on everything. It seems that what is not thought of by Mahathir isn't good for Malaysia.

5. When he resigned after 22 months, it was done only to derail Anwar from being PM. That shows Mahathir is vengeful and thinks highly of himself alone. That without him as pm, Malaysia will fail .

6. Well, Mahathir is not the measuring stick by which to measure Malaysia's success. Indeed, Mahathir showed us what not to do.

7. Among other things, we must not be soft bellied when dealing with corruption, we must not play God and choose winners in a free market, we must not create unnatural monopolies and oligopolies, insist on creating a deregiste economy where big government is the preferred choice and say that's good economics and so on.

8. What you had were Mahathirism and Mahathirnomics-
Social and economic policies widely regarded, wrongly, as panacea for most of our social ills.

9. They were not. To say that Mahathirism and Mahathirnomics did a disservice to Malaysians especially the malays is an understatement. For 22 years, the twin evils deluded Malaysians in general, and the malays in particular into believing that the thoughts of Dr Jekyll Mahathir were a blessing for them. They were in fact more of a curse for them. For 22 months, Malaysians were bullied and the sullied ideas of mahathir were foisted on them.

10. It is indeed a case of fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me. We should all be ashamed into believing that ailments requiring aspirin, were prescribed with off the shelf Panadol.

11. Even worse, Mahathir this time around, did not even want to prescribe Panadol but to apply arsenic on Malaysians especially the malays

12. Indeed, to quickly cover up and prevent people from scrutinizing the deficiencies of Mahathirism and Mahathirnomics, the crafty doctor, was planning to hold a public gathering which would listen to a 12 point Malay declaration, authored by the ghoulish doctor himself .

13. The planned gathering was stopped by the government authorities. And the hotel near the PETRONAS twin towers which was to provide the venue for the gathering, cancelled the booking by the Malay rights group.

14. It's not a question of' is the government scared of the gathering, but because the intention of the gathering being malicious. Hence, the gathering was outlawed .

15. The intention was not to enlighten the public and the listeners, elevate intelligence or expand reason . No, it's purpose was to heighten Malay paranoia and xenophobia and simply, hatred towards non malays.

16. PM Anwar did the right thing to outlaw the gathering. Unchecked, it could lead to the escalation of bigotry, jingoism and open hostilities. The preservation of a harmonious society is paramount. The action of the PM, showed he is firm to preserve such a society. He acted responsibly.

17. Ironically, Dr Mahathir would have let the dogs out and outlaw such a gathering.

18 . PM Anwar is doing exactly different from what the Dr prescribed. That causes Mahathir to go maniacal .

19. We see corruption being eliminated slowly but surely, no more playing economic favorites, economic liberalization instead of pervasive deregister economy, free market instead of monopolies and monopsonistic business deals etc .

20. The horrified Mahathir is looking at his legacies being dismantled one by one by Anwar. He can't take it and responded like a cornered (paper)tiger.

21. Mahathir responded in typical mahithirisqe way. He may be taking a leaf from the playbook of a Mussolini or Hitler or a Kim IL sung.

22. Mahathir said a lot of piffle and poppycock in his many PCs. He would have said the same things had the gathering taken place.

23. Only to show his personal animosity towards Anwar. So he pours out arsenic over everything Anwar does . Mahathir is behaving like if something is not thought of by him, it's no good for Malaysia.

24. The world, dear sirs, revolves not because of M, but despite of M. Dr M comes across as a depraved, demented old man unhappy about him being treated as insignificant. Certainly, he fits the description of non compos mentis.

25. Among the things he said via his many press meets, were
Anwars government is not Malay centric
Anwar is a dictator
Anwar is too liberal about religion and by implication, Islam is under siege
Anwar will be tolerant towards lbgts
Anwar government talks more than deliver
That mps have rights to oust Anwar .

26. The linchpin of M's criticism is that anwars government is not Malay enough. This accusation falls flat upon closer scrutiny.

27. It's obvious that racial Superiority and Malay triumphalism is on top of his mind. He's so obsessed with his master race thinking, that he forgets the government is already Malay and BUMIPUTRA centric .

28. M's not being Malay centric enough, ignores the fact that almost the entire government institution is already BUMIPUTRAcised. The cabinet for instance is composed overwhelmingly of BUMIPUTRAs.

29. The Dap has only 4 ministers in the cabinet. It's incredulous to believe that 4 non Malay voices can overwhelm the voices of the bumis.

30. So what really is the main intention of the Malay Declaration? If the intention is to provide inputs to the Anwar government, that can be achieved by less militant way.

31. If such a declaration is in name only and will never mean the forceful taking away of non Malay interests, then why is there a need for a declaration in the first place?

32. Hence Malay rights and interests are vigorously implemented with or without a declaration.

33. In my opinion, the intention of the gathering and declaration is to accentuate Malay paranoia and siege mentality driving them into a maniacal frenzy.

34. That could lead to catastrophic consequences. The PM is therefore right to stop M's manipulation.

35. Also, I find such a declaration to be superfluous. If Malay rights and interests are already protected by various clauses in the constitution, looked after by the King, guaranteed by the numerical superiority of the malays, implemented by overzealous bigots, why the need for a declaration by a 98 year old man?

36. I am weary of the use of Malay fears and paranoia. Or for that matter of special rights clauses. Like Samuel Johnson said, patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.

37. Similarly, the false use of Malay paranoia and fears, is the last refuge of scoundrels. It is nothing but reasons to ignite Malay suspicions and distrust.

38. And I find the various special Malay rights clauses in our constitution as being offensive,ie their false uses

39. Because just as patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels, Malayism is also the last refuge of scoundrels, of bellicose, belligerent and pugnacious people.

40. False usage of the various special rights clauses hides a litany of repulsive self entitlements. Under them, the Malay is entitled to be lazy and indolent, to be mediocre, to steal, to be corrupt, to ravage the law, entitled to be pitied on, entitled to be pardoned, entitled to have an RCI where none is justified and so on

41. So the declaration is just melodramatic and prima donnish only .

42. I want to address 2 other issues raised by M. That Anwar is a dictator and mps have the right to our Anwar. Both are patently wrong.

43. The right of a sophistical, spurious and perverse statement by M. The purpose of mps is to be the mouthpiece of the rakyat, to better their lot, to give voice to the voiceless etc.

44. Not to undermine a government or to effect a governmental change by evil machinations. Then, mps are nothing more than power crazed individuals.

45. If the vocation of mps is to scheme and plot the downfall of a ruling government like anwars, then we have a sorry excuse for electing such characters. M is sedetiously the inviting these characters to constantly cause turmoils, upheavals and instability.

46. Instead of busying themselves in making the lives of the community they served better, they would rather engage in the power grab proposed by M.

47. They behaved like a group of mob- thus we have a mobocracy, a mafiacracy, a yakuzacracy with boss M at the helm.

48. Have we forgotten the rule that in a democracy, we change or replace a government through the ballot box. Not by some evil machinations expounded by the devillish doctor.

49. On a very general level, power grabbers are by definition, corrupt people. Lord Acton says that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. That must mean that those who seek power for power sake, must be corrupt or will eventually be one .

50. Others have widely condemned M for calling Anwar a dictator. I feel inadequate to follow them in their footsteps. I shall however try to debunk M in other ways.

51. During M's time, we saw autocratic rule, sanitized corruption, what was not thought of by M M was not good enough for Malaysia. He chose winners over free economic competition, that's how the term crony arose, created a plethora of monopolies from cooking oil to onions, established a deregiste economy and so on-the unmistakable characteristics of a dictatorial rule .

52. Anwar is doing exactly the opposite . There is no autocratic leadership, as much consensus is reached, Anwar will not tolerate any variants of corruption, doesn't play God in picking economic favorites, slowly dismantling monopolies and liberalarizing the economy.

53. The actions taken by Anwar have earned the ire of a horrified M. He's looking at his legacy going up in smoke before his very eyes.

54. Mahathir wants to talk about Malay paranoia, fears and siege mentality. He wants to rescue his dying relevancy. Nevermind if the community is destroyed as long as his evil plan succeeds .

55. We all must reject his evil machinations. We must support Anwar where support is due. The way of Mahathirism is over .

56. Mahathir's politics is reactionary and revisionist. He wants to return to the old days of doing things. Well , those halcyon days are gone . Anwars way is the new way.
