One political party's reticence.

It has been months, after mp William Leong, told parliament and the public hears it. The community he heads, will call the two Ronnies, the present AG and his predecessor to explain the DNAAgate.
Until now, there's nothing. Perhaps William Leong is hoping, with the passage of time, all is forgotten.
I was disappointed too, when the MP of kota Melaka seemed apologetic about the DNAA. Instead Of Asking Probing And Robust Questions about a dubious DNAA, he berated opposition MPs for making noises about the DNAA. The issue is the DNAA not the normal conduct of the noisy opposition MPs.
The DAP too had politely asked for an explanation from the AGC. It seems the request is politely swept under the plush carpets of Putrajaya . DAP has since been quiet on the issue.
The public sees the DAP as the bastion and an uncompromising fighter against all forms of social injustices. Don't betray this trust .
The DAP is recalcitrant, obstinate and even evasive about playing its role as the mouthpiece of all law abiding citizens and right thinking members of the public.
It is diffident and unassertive and not robust when asking the government.
For these reasons, I am again posting the article. When will the Two Ronnies be called?

1. I don't care about other political parties, especially the opposition PN, over the vociferous noises they made over zahid's infamous DNAA. They're eager to win brownie points.

2. I am however, disappointed with the DAP, over its overall reticence, restrained articulations, laconic and almost mousy utterances, except for a few truncated typical opposition against jahids DNAA.

3. This kind of submissive behavior is so out of character with DAP. It has been perceived as being the vanguard in the fight against all forms of social injustices, indiscretions, corruption etc. Now, it seems to have accepted as trade off between shutting up and elevating the infamous DNAA to prominence.

4. As my former colleagues in shell would likely say, tiu kaw, tiu nia Seng !

5. DAP is politely and courteously asking the AGC to provide an explanation. In actuality, it doesn't accept the DNAA and yet it's worshipping the DNAA at the altar and for good measure, burning joss sticks

6. For God sake,si Fu, ah soh, ah Kong, this is not a political Phillips curve trade off . You don't pay for the blasted DNAA by zipping up

7. If DAP wants to do that,sit down in a corner, eat Bak kut teh, draw a painting or make an embroidery. Then asks the AGC to come up with for a sanitized explanation of the DNAA .

8. DAP needs to say clearly and emphatically to thick headed AGC, that it doesn't agree with the DNAA. It wants an explanation that convinces DAP and the public.

9. Better still , DAP prepares its own legal reasons opposing the DNAA. But release the document containing its reasons at the same time as the parliamentary committee sees the former and present AG. That way, the 2 AGs cannot prepare their answer tailored to circumvent DAPs objections .

10. Surely, DAP lawyers can list down all the technical arguments for objecting the DNAA. These are necessary but not sufficient. The technical objections must be tempered with wisdom and compassion which can only come from listening to the public. The people find the DNAA repulsive and obnoxious.

11. The statement by mp William Leong is welcomed. He told parliament that the committee he heads, would call the former and present AGs.

12. But we can't help feeling that the committee hearing will be a whitewash. The 2 AGs will come up with cerita Mak nenek .

13. If we are sincere about reaching the truth, why not also call the former head of prosecution, Raja rozela?

14. Perhaps, not only she could enlighten us about the prosecution, but for good measure, tell the committee why she was euphemistically asked to retire?

15. I am however a bit disappointed when the mp from kota Melaka spoke on the matter . What he spoke didn't serve any purpose -does DAP agree with the DNAA or does it not? That is the point.

16. He spoke about the formation of a committee headed by William Leong and the inclusion into that committee, the mischievous noise Maker, shahidan Kassim. For what purpose? Possibly to appear one up over shahidan .

17. I am not even sure whether attendance of the AGs before bill leongs committee is mandatory unlike appearance before the PAC .

18. When kota Melaka spoke about the matter, it's as though he regretted that the thunder of the DNAA issue was mostly monopolized by the opposition instead of the DAP. What to do?

19. If he regrets, then it is justified. People looked upon DAP as the rampart and bulwark in the fight against any forms of social injustices.

20. There is a quote wrongly attributed to e. Burke that reads, there's only one thing necessary for an evil to triumph. That is when good men stand idle. Corruption will triumph, when DAP is hesitant.

UMNOs chances in the kemaman by-election:slim and none

1. UMNO has 2 chances in the kemaman by election. Slim and none.

2. UMNO overestimates it's importance and it's relevance to any Malay interests .

3. The hard truth is , UMNO is no longer a mandatory requirement for the survival of the Malays in particular and Malaysia in general. UMNOs dismal results in the 2022 elections showed us that . UMNO is simply not relevant to Malaysia. A good government is and that minus UMNO.

4. The harder truth is, Malays and Malaysians picked themselves up, by pulling their own bootstraps.

5. This is UMNOs basic problem. It approaches the kemaman by election, as it does all elections and by elections.

The way UMNO approaches any elections has always been the same and characteristic of UMNO. It's the way of the arrogant, supercilious, pompous and conceited bastard. The embodiment of such attitude can be seen in the person of the UMNO youth chief. Such a character is only much loved by a degenerate like Tajuddin Rahman.

6. It's overall cocksure attitude, will prove to be UMNOs, to use the famous term used by F.A.Hayek, fatal conceit .

7. UMNO just can't shirk off its elitist and feudalistic psyche. As if affirming it's pompous attitude, it has to pick a brahmin candidate, a former defense chief

8. Well, like policeman, the general, upon retirement will discover, he has few civilian friends. And furthermore like Zahid once said, we will not support a candidate who enters our house, by jumping through the window.

9. So when the former army chief says he has a duty to serve, as a good soldier, he has it coming.

10. He is under a duty to serve alright, as a useful idiot and and as a sacrificial lamb.

11. Thus far, we have cited several reasons why UMNOs chances are slim and none. First, UMNO is not a determinant for the betterment of Malays and Malaysians. Second, people abhor UMNOs pomposity. 3rd, UMNO has chosen a wrong candidate, parachuted from somewhere .

12. Come to think of it, I too have a call of duty-to go to the toilet.

13. Do we see people dropping dead like flies because UMNO is not the government and the people not represented by UMNO MPs or ADUNs?

14. No is the answer which means that an UMNO government, MPs or ADUNs are NOT required. The betterment of the people is not dependent on UMNO. They need a good government.

15 . A good and an effective government under an effective leadership. Now the present terenganu government may not fit the bill 100%, maybe 60 to 70%, but that is enough for the people.

16. The pas government in Terengganu may be so so, but the people have demonstrated that they are willing to forgo the promise of meterial benefits sold by UMNO, in exchange for the promise of spiritual salvation sold by pas

17. Even though the promise of spiritual salvation is often ludicrous and absurd. Such as guaranteeing going to heaven or building an ecclesiastical government .

18. But compared to the crass materialism and the attendant widespread corruption which is taken as a normal characteristic of being a Malay, the kemaman voters are willing to forfeit them in favour of the promise of spiritual salvation.

19. What does PAS offer? A decent government acceptable enough, a promise of spiritual salvation and a generally universally accepted candidate

20. What does UMNO offer in return? A conceited, arrogant and hubristic attitude.

21. UMNO still thinks it's number one in Malaysian politics. So it offers the same stale stock in trade.

It thinks the Terengganu and kemaman people would succumb to its offer of material progress and development.

23.umno misses the point. The point is the people in kemaman attach lesser importance to material bribes than religious salvation, however absurd the latter may sound.

24. The kemaman voters can see through the farce and superficialities of the UMNO election machinery. There's nothing the cartoonic mat sabu or the big guns in PKR can do.

25. UMNO remains its usual self; an unrepentant, condemned and delusional creature. It's leaders exhibit the same obnoxious habits .

26. From the mindless diatribes of the UMNO youth chief, to the thuggish demeanor of wak jahid and to the comical Antic of lil' Lan, the pontian gnome, UMNO is its despicable self .

27. UMNOs campaigns are nothing more than political entertainment and storytelling about nothing. It can't campaign saying the DAP will control the government because it's not true. And also because it has been telling that lie all the while.

28. The most idiotic statement to come out from the mouth of the UMNO president took place when he said that PAS is in panic mode and has no candidate when it fielded the MB as its candidate .

29. The Javanese neanderthal is unaware of what sun Tzu said. Sun Tzu says, nothing is lost more than by doing things halfway. When confronting the enemy, destroy him in body and spirit.

30. PAS is more aware of the infidel sun Tzu's theory on war than Zahid. That's why they put up the MB as candidate. Destroy the body and spirit. They are out to win not to humour Zahid.

31. And poor lil' Lan, the pontian gnome was made to dress up to show UMNOs religiosity. Replete with skull cap and maybe sarong and robe, to show his Islamic credentials.

32. But the people of kemaman all know its all fake. And I know for a fact, that the UMNO people are allergic to mosques and suraus .

33. Which can only mean that the UMNO kemaman division under the leadership of the moron Mat Said has neglected the spiritual brainwashing, indoctrination and pontification aspects of local politics.

34. And now, UMNO will reap what it sowed. It's own laggardness and indolence are capitalised by PAS. Its a by election UMNO chooses to lose.

35. When push comes to shove, UMNO can't deliver the goods. It can only win in areas where the majority of voters are as bigotted as them.

36. It's inconceivable that the people of terenganu who had voted 100% for PAS would now give UMNO a beachhead. Furthermore, the decision of the election court was really faulting the kemaman voters for being 'cheap' enough to be bribed. They will now punish UMNO for this insolence.

37. For these reasons, I say UMNOs chances in the kemaman by-election are slim and none.

The Washington PC and the Revealing Flotilla issue

1. Someone sent me this video clip. This prompted me to give a few comments.

2. I am very disappointed with the quality of the reply. I hope I am not alone feeling disappointed.

3. The answer was confusing and very very off tangent. Very off the mark.

4. The pm was ill prepared. The research officers at the PM's department did not brief the pm on a very current topic and must have been scratching their balls . Hey, be ready at my typical colourful description .

5. The pm was asked on the Gaza flotilla issue. Why did Malaysia regard it as an important issue. It's just inconceivable that the research officers at the PM's department do not stay abreast on this issue. You suckers telah menjatuhkan kemaluan Pak Nana. sungguh kurang sopan!

6. Before we go discussing as to why Malaysia regarded the issue as important, let's discuss what the episode reveals about the PM. This is based solely on the conduct of the PM at the Washington interview . Remember that

7. The few things we can discerned of the pm is follows.
A. The pm is incapable of giving a direct answer.
B. The pm isn't witty enough to give an impromptu answer
C. Different question asked, different answer given. It shows that the PM cannot stick to one theme and his mind meanders.
D. More damaging, it can mean you can't hold the PM on his words. Anything in his mind is ephemeral . Or to put it more bluntly, you can't trust him.

8. The last observation comes at no surprise. Promises given were a thing of the past, promises broken are a thing of the present.

9. What's the impact? The impact is, it affects your political longevity. You can't stay long as a leader, if you keep reneging on your promises. If you promised something, you'd better carry them out.

10. So far we have little done in the way of weeding out corruption, wastage, abuse of power, ensuring the country is run on law and order. There is law, but order is sacrificed.
The DNAA given to Zahid, shows that order has been thrown out of the window.

11. Law and order requires that stiffer and proportionate sentences be given to law breakers and not watered down sentences. If powerful law breakers do not mind commiting crimes knowing they would possibly get discharged, they would happily commit them. The powerless and voiceless will be at the mercy of the full extent of the law.

12. The slippery answer given by the PM, reveals that he is a person driven more by what is more convenient and advantageous to him. Shifting from answering the flotilla issue and rambling on the Allah issue, shows that he will avoid answering an inconvenient issue and talked about unrelated issue .

13. To me, that means we can't hold on to his words. He will avoid tackling the hard issue and would rather move on to subjects over which he has rhetorical mastery .

14. Which leads us to believe that most of what he spoke and speaks on stage, were and are all empty rhetoric. He will probably allow the exact opposite to happen.

15. Then it will be more of the same. More and widespread corruption, more wastage, more abuse of power, more embezzlement and sakau.

16. He will encourage us to forget and stay muted on Zahid DNAA issue, brushed aside the issue of the purchase of expired vaccine and probably 'fondle' the issue of giving Ali babavum Najib a royal pardon.

17.its obvious, the pm can't give a direct answer. This can mean he doesn't know this subject, ill advised by his research officers. Sack them because their lethargy and deficiencies all all borne by the PM.

18. Unlike Mahathir, the PM showed he isn't worthy enough to give an ascerbic rejoinder. An opportunity to condemn Israel and its chief benefactor, the apple pie imperialist

19. Just so, why is the flotilla issue important? Chiefly because it's simply against human decency and must be roundly condemned .

20. First what right has a well armed country to put up a blockade against an emaciated people? It's the same like starving the Gazians, 'austhwitzing' them.

21. On 31st May 2023, a flotilla of 6 ships carrying much needed aid were to arrive at a port in gaza.they were attacked by Israeli ships and resulted in the death of 10 volunteer, mostly Turkish people .

22. In the first place, the blockade cannot be justified on any grounds. It should be condemned as armed bullying .

23. But it's the muted response by the west, especially USA, Europe and UK that is despicable. Malaysian condemns the farce and duplicity .

24. Their common response reveals:-
A. The hypocrisy of western diplomacy
B. The western supremacy complex
C. Islamahobic and anti Islam
D. Residual racism of the west.

25. The representation of these elements makes the flotilla issue important to Malaysia and other countries .

26. The flotilla issue reveals the hypocrisy of western/white diplomacy. They bend backwards to excuse Israel of doing every unconscionable atrocities . Using their 'white' diplomacy they confer upon Israel the right of defending itself while refusing the same right for coloured Palestinians. Theirs is a lollipop diplomacy, licked by a tongue not unlike that of a chameleon's, a tongue that curls backwards .

27. Western, especially USA diplomacy really consists of subterfuge pitting off one party against another, but actually benefiting their choice party. While comforting the Palestinian with false promises, they applaud the Israelis for removing the stones in their Shoes.

28. Thinking about it seriously, you will realise that western and especially US diplomacy is an extension of supremacism in various forms, in their political intercourse. The Palestinians are really screwed.

29. Supremacism,being the belief by one particular group(read the west) that it is and will always be superior than non west culture.

30. The supremacism of the west is it almost always, based on its belief that the west is superior in terms of:-
A. Culture
C. Morality
D. Ethnicity and racial. This refers to the the residual racism encoded in the deep recesses of their emotional constitution. But it's always there and resurfaces under the name, diplomacy.

31. Now , there is new form of supremacist thinking, espounded by people like sueElla Braverman of the world, which is that the Palestinians are like that, because it's their life choice.

32. It's the fault of the Palestinians. They chose a life of the homeless, living in squalor and smeared in holy camel dung.

33. Correspondingly, the west does a service to humanity, by worsening the situation of the Palestinians. Lets hasten the ethnic cleansing because the west can't stand the sight of them.

34. The flotilla issue is important to Malaysia because aggression cannot be tolerated. The blockade is wrong

35. The issue is also important because western response is essentially, disguised bigotry hiding all the supremacist values we mentioned above.

36. Hence, the PC in Washington was important because it revealed some hard truths .

37. It certainly showed the shallowness and infirmativeness of the PM's political constitution. It revealed the the PM has the tendency to sweep the principal issue and veered to pontificating on issues he is comfortable with, but people in the audience know nuts of

38. Nearer to home, we can certainly deduce, the PM will sweep the major issues under the thick Putrajaya carpets .We most likely won't be hearing about the LCS scandal, the OPV issue, the howitzer cannon issue , purchase of unusable ventilators, purchase of expired vaccines etc. But we will be hearing more of his personal vendetta issues about him settling old scores.

39. The Washington PC certainly exposed the West's hypocrisy in more ways than one.

40. Many friends find it hard to believe that my continuous harsh criticisms of the PM, I still am supportive of him. Yes I do, for the reasons I have said in previous articles. He remains the best hope for Malaysia, provided he's willing to listen

41. No, I won't throw him under the bus but I won't stay silent either. The PM requires guard rails to help him walk on the slippery road of the country's leadership.

'The vulgar people are always taken in by appearances and the world is full of them.' Signore Machiavelli. Part 1

1. Two things that Machiavelli said, remained fresh in my mind all the time.

2. The first was that ' the vulgar people are always taken in by appearance and the world is full of them .

3. Translated into more current terms, it would read as the idiotic people are taken in by appearances and the world is full of them.

4. Hence, the idiots would typically say, hey the pm kuat kerja gila. They would say this in such forceful manner, as though the manner in which they say it, would suggest that's it's an uncontestable truth

5. Perhaps they are taken in when the pm appears to working maddeningly hard when eating at warungs here and there, praying here there and everywhere, escorted by a phalanx of bodyguards including now, security details in dark glasses running alongside his car all of which convinced the idiots, PM kuaat kerja gila woi .

6. We have never seen security details running alongside the PM's official car before. The present PM must indeed be working kuat gila! To the point that his own personal safety is compromised .

7. The seriousness of the compromised security issue is sufficient to prompt the IGP to say, the PM's personal safety is top security. Don't play play!

8. So he puts security details running alongside the PM's official car. Like the American President. The Malaysian El presidente!

9. Maybe the threats against the PM are real. Who are we to question matters of security? Only mahiadin and Hamzah will dispute it. But we must also not dismiss the possibility the PM enjoys big burly and sweaty big asses running infront of him . Waduuh!

10. But like Walter Mondale said, following ms Clara Peller in the Wendy commercial said, where's the beef!!!!

11. The whirlwind assertion that the PM kuat kerja gila, must be evidenced by the results that matter, produced. And the results are dismal.

12. Where are the results of the PM's kuat kerja gila my bigmouth friend? There are shortages of rice, cooking oil and other food items. The ringgit is very down. Inflation despite the yearbook explanation by the senator minister, is high. The economy overall, has bombed. The result of kuat kerja gila?

13. The shortage of rice, poultry and other foodstuff is very depressing. This reflects the buffoonery of the said minister.

14. Although he is my friend, his incompetence in terms of work, won't insulate him from my usual strident criticisms.

15. When he replied a question in parliament by asking the questioner, why he eats more expensive imported rice, I thought that was a 'Poh Kee Mak' answer. I am not swearing ya, that's a name of a character in Pak Sako's novel, in case you don't know.

16. It didn't occur to him, some of us buy more expensive imported rice is because we can't buy locally produced rice.

17. So, the myth about the PM kerja kuat gila, is made worse by having incompetent fools in his cabinet.

18. Because vulgar people are taken in by appearances, it remains for Anwar to manage his appearance, image and perception .

19. There will always be useful idiots like the mp from Hulu Langat,who will amplify, embellish and perpetuate the farcical image.

20. In truth, Anwar maybe far removed from the appearances his image want us to believe. He actually maybe an obnoxious fellow, develish and imperial and Mandarin like. He surrounds himself with lackeys who will work overtime to preserve his imperial self. And there will always be useful idiots who will chorus the farce .

21. Meanwhile, Pak Nana will capitalise on the idiocy of the majority.

Part 2. The other thing Machiavelli said.
