The above looks like fake news. No details, no links given.
Googling “10 feb 2017 mahathir brim rasuah” does not produce anything on the above claim that Tun Dr Mahathir saiid on 16 Feb that “BRIM ada lah asuah …”
Any fake news laws should be aimed at pro-Umno/Bn fellows.
The very fact they can only harp on and on about various aspects of the tunnel without latching on to any real scandal is revealing. Ten years of digging and scrounging for real scandal, they have zero (except for the mega RM2million bungalow ‘scandal’ and one dead Sgor aide over a RM2K advance payment. And that official letter by an exco carrying out state policy. Wow, Najib and BN can say Penang is full of scandals. Meanwhile we have witnessed 1MDB, SRC, Arab ‘donation’, Felda Jln Semarak, Mara Aussie scandals, KLIA2 overblown budget, MRT overblown budget, PKFZ overblown budget, TRX overpriced sellback to Tabung Haji, overpriced road to speaker’s house, overpriced Tugu park project, jamil khir’s scandal, macc boss’ scandal, …
EU palm oil ban the last thing Najib needs as GE14 looms
Malaysia’s 50,000 smallholders fear they will be hurt most by the European Union decision to ban palm oil imports, estimated to cost the nation RM1.9 billion in export revenue annually. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, February 16, 2018.
THE European Union decision to ban palm oil imports has fuelled rural voters’ discontent with Prime Minister Najib Razak, posing a threat to Umno’s reign come the 14th general election.
Reuters reported that Malaysia’s 650,000 smallholders – already aggrieved over scandals plaguing the state-owned Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) and a drop in income due to plummeting palm prices – fear they will be hurt most by the ban, estimated to cost the nation US$500 million (RM1.9 billion) in export revenue annually.
With GE14 to be called by August, Najib, who is also Umno president, cannot afford to lose the rural Malay vote, which has been a virtual guarantee, keeping the party as head of the ruling coalition since Malaysia’s independence.
Jasa is nothing but the propaganda arm of BN. It’s existence is only to serve the political needs of BN. That taxpayers money is being used to pay for the Jasa officers’ salaries who delve in partisan politics is a travesty of the highest order. Get rid of Puad Zarkashi. Get rid of all Jasa officials. They are all parasites.
The Father of 1MDB wrong turns will turn to a downfall at Pru14.
1MDB is not just rasuah, it’s also curi, rompak and melanun.
RM2.6b ‘donations’ and SRC RM42m found in MO1 personal AmBank accounts, are they classified as fraud and negligence?
Tun Mahathir said they are piracy.
The Indian blueprint has many good points, such as more enrolment of Indians in the civil service or students who want to pursue higher education or special approval system for citizenship. But many in the B40 groups don’t qualify for these initiatives. Take the unit trust scheme… if B40 Indians have money for unit trusts, they wouldn’t be struggling with groceries and electricity bills.
DAP today asked the federal government what it plans to do to tackle the “big issue” of the rising cost of living, which sees Malaysians not feeling the impact of the nation’s economic growth.
Party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said action must be taken to address the matter as the people were struggling with rising prices.
“What are they (federal government) doing to stop this? The federal government must answer.
“There is proof that economic growth is not felt by the people,” he told a press conference in Penang.
The chief minister was referring to recent reports quoting Mydin boss Ameer Ali Mydin as saying Malaysia’s rosy gross domestic product growth was not felt by the people.
The managing director of the Mydin hypermarket chain, in a recent interview with radio station BFM, had said consumers did not have enough money to spend, and this could be seen in the drop in Mydin’s sales.
Ameer had said growth was fuelled by domestic consumption, but hypermarkets and supermarkets that controlled half of the grocery market in Malaysia were seeing negative growth.
He cited huge price increases in the last five years affecting basic food items, like cabbage (29%), ikan kembung (19.5%), Maggi chilli sauce (38.8%) and Ayam-brand sardine (30.6%).
“And you can say 6% may be because of the goods and services tax,” he was quoted as saying.
Najib and nobody in his gomen bothers about increasing prices.
Let them go to their doom at Pru14.
Umo/Bn must not be voted back into power.
Pos di atas ni nyata di buat dek puak pro-Jib. Dah tarak modai lagi, cakap mengarut, tak mau kasi bukti, ha nya tuduh saja.
Tapi rakyat maukan Najib U turn, mengaku dia seleweng 1MDB dan songlap berbilion Ringgit.
Nyata dia tak akan buat begitu. Jadi kita U turn kan dia terbalik, lingkup di Pru 14.
Felda boss says fraud, PM says negligence. PM wants to protect former Felda Chairman Isa Samad who he was indebted for helping him out in “the Port Dickson matter”?
But PM’s office has said carry on with the investigations and forensic audit. Just for show, talking tongue in cheek?
Can STL throw some light on the infamous Port Dickson incident?
STL can, but won’t.
STL is on Najib’s side now.
STL = Supporting The Liar?
Thuggery by Umno/Bn supporters in Johor Bahru.
Johor Pakatan Harapan leaders cried foul after a group of villagers scuttled their event at a local stall in Johor Bahru.
Johor Bahru MP Shahrir Abdul Samad said it was unfair to blame Umno for the fracas, adding that there were customs to adhere to when entering a village.
What customs? Need to pay tax? Need to bow down to then the Umno thugs before can organize aPH event?
What utter nonsense. If the Police did not top the PH event, why the bloody hell did the Umno goons did it? They should be arrested.
Jamal Yunus samseng antics is now in Johor… wonder what the Johor Sultan would say?
This angry mob obviously comprise of UMNO sympathisers who told the opposition they are not welcomed since they criticise UMNO. Is Shahrir going to say that if they are not UMNO then he is totally not responsible? As a senior politician, is this the kind of thuggish behaviour he condones? Has he said anything about “this is a democracy, people have right to gather, listen to opposing views, people should refrain from any kind of intimidating/harrassing conduct” etc? Did he say “these are not our guys – what they did is shameful – I hope the police will investigate”? If he said no such thing, then he aspires to benefit from these kinds of thuggery, and that is not acceptable.
UMNO Malays are violent and aggressive and that is their only way of engagement. PH Malays are civilized and willing to engage in constructive debate but not them. This violent culture is exhibited from people who does not have any simple logic and also commonsense. There is a lot of work to be done to cure this people of such mentality. Good Luck to PH as they have a huge task ahead if they do form the next government.
What about the police? Are they going to step up and say those who intimidate will be arrested? A responsible police force, on the eve of general election, should already do so and enforce the law.
the “rudeness” of the agitators for stopping DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang from attending the Pakatan Harapan “meet and greet””session in Kampung Bakar Batu.
“Johor Harapan had issued a statement to express our disappointment over the act by the thugs of Umno and BN to stop our event, which is usually held there to celebrate the Chinese New Year,” TS Muhyiddin said.
A number of Harapan leaders had visited the area to distribute mandarin oranges to residents ahead of the celebration…
Disrupted by Umno thugs. What utter thuggery.
JDT Royalty is silent onthis matter.
Royalty is above politics.
Royalty seems to align with BN.
Pekema wants Putrajaya to intervene in Geely-led Proton
The Malaysian Association of Malay Vehicle Importers and Traders (Pekema) has called on Putrajaya to intervene in Geely-led Proton, claiming that several policies the company was introducing could see bumiputera distributors and vendors closing shop. This is a serious development and Najib must be held reponsible for letting those happen.
“We ask that Proton and the government take note of the importance of the bumiputera agenda which is no longer a priority to the new Proton management. But Najib has not been seen as much concerned with the Malay agenda. Tun Mahathir’s 22 years rule led to the creation of one Malay billionaire – yed Mokhtar Bukhari. Najib’s 6 years rule also led to the creation of one Malay billionaire – RM2.6 illion in his bank accounts.
“We see that Proton has strayed from its original objective. We are worried that Proton is being fully controlled by Geely,” Pekema president Zainuddin Abdul Rahman said in an interview with Mingguan Malaysia. Blardy hell, China’s Geely has only a 49.9 percent stake in Proton, not majority shareholding. Yet allowed to damage the Bumiputera interests in running the company.
Zainuddin said, “It is not impossible that in five to six months time, the bumiputera vendors for Proton will die off, their businesses will close down.” That’s why it’s damn important that a new government be elected to run the country and set things right at Proton in seeing that the Malay businesses are not scuttled.
Distributors who fail to settle payment with Proton within 60 days would also have their operations blocked.
Zainuddin also complained about the corporate discounts given by Proton, such as that given to Hokkien associations. Damn racist China-mali Proton CEO.
“The 10 percent discount given to Hokkien associations, Petronas staff, DRB-Hicom and financial institutions affects sales of Proton distributors, as buyers would buy cars directly from Proton and not from distributors.
“This is clearly a form of discrimination against distributors who are not able to give special discounts,” he said.
Did Najib sell Proton to Chinese because it was Mahathir’s brainchild?
South China Morning Post
Has Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak washed his hands of the home-grown car manufacturer Proton just because it is the brainchild of his mentor-turned-arch rival Mahathir Mohamad?
The ONE who brings justice goes to jail. The ONE who broke the law walked free…. All those who care must wake up and do your part… I don’t like Pakatan Tada Harapan… I have high regards for Tun M but dislike him. But compared to the fiasco as of now, I’ll go for Pakatan Tada Harapan…. Please remember to target rural folks vote, the weakest link in Pakatan Tada Harapan… You only need 3-5% more vote swing…. It is reachable and if everybody do their part, BN is history. I want to see WHO WILL GO TO JAIL!!!
The mentality of the undirosak camp saddens me. It’s like insisting on driving a car with faulty brakes, because you havent found the perfect car with all the bells and whistles. Be careful you dont wind up dead. What i find sad is that in their somewhat arrogant idealism, they have not given a thought to all those who have perished because of the present regime’s excesses or incompetence, even if indirectly. Let’s try counting – 200+ dead in custody incl poor A Kugan, Dhamendran etc, poor Teo Beng Hock, 250+ people on MH370, 200+ on MH17, the 30-40 on the Genting bus crash and i forget how many others, victims of the Eco City bridge collapse, penang flyover collapse, you know who’s structure collapse, the victims of the Camerons flash flood,…go on, has any undirosak flers bothered to make a list?
Those who dislike Mahathir should also boycott Japan and Japanese goods given the past atrocities of WW2 Japan. Otherwise you are just an hypocritical nonsense.
I like the words “hypocritical nonsense”. They actually are. Fitting description.
Many do it simply out of resentment against Najib. They don’t know the implications of not voting and the value of their votes.
Resenting Najib, they should go out and vote against Najib. That way, there’s a chance of voting Najib out of office.
Damn the bloody British colonialists and their running dogs (a few existing until to day) who said the Malays are lazy and stupid. They should read the following and eat their words and their shit –
Why Nasa scientist Amani chose M’sia over the stars
April 2014, a young scientist by the name of Dr Wan Wardatul Amani Wan Salim became the first Malaysian to launch a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) satellite to space.
Just 36 years old at the time, Amani was entrusted to lead a team of 28 scientists, technologists and engineers to work on Nasa’s first ever “astrobiology” programme used to test how living cells would respond to a lack of gravity.
The project was eventually launched as a nanosatellite together with a SpaceX rocket as part of Nasa’s Journey to Mars mission.
The Penangite’s journey to rocket science began when she still an electrical engineering student at the University of Minnesota. Out of curiosity, she volunteered her spare time working in laboratories.
Her first job? Washing glass slides and cover slips for microscopes.
“People might ask, ‘Who wants to clean glass slides?’ it’s so boring right? But that job led me to Nasa.
“I worked in these laboratories because I wanted to learn, but because I did the work so well, they started paying me and giving me opportunities. To the level that the professor recommended me to do a PhD (in biomedicine),” she recounted when met at the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), where she presently teaches and conducts research.
Since moving back to Malaysia in late 2014, Amani has shifted her focus from satellites to creating simple devices for local communities.
She has built a simple sensor that enables just about anyone to test water samples for any harmful bacteria, especially useful in flood conditions. She and her team are currently building a reusable, affordable and non-invasive device to monitor blood glucose.
“I could have easily gotten a job at Nasa, but I wanted something more, I wanted to solve real problems.
“It’s not that I wasn’t solving problems in the US, but there are already so many people solving problems there. When I looked at the context of Malaysia, I saw that I could solve this and solve that…
This is why Singaporeans should migrate to Malaysia
“You want to curse and defame your leader on Facebook? said the message, most probably prepared by a team that has been put in place to defend Malaysian PM Najib Razak against his detractors and against the opposition pact.
The answer to the question: “Leave Singapore lah and go to Malaysia. They can curse their Prime Minister every day.”
NO, NO, NO. NEVER.
I don’t like or support Najib, but I don’t want Singaporeans to migrate to Malaysia!!!!
“awarded the massive undertaking to a conglomerate that barely had the means to service its obligations to CRCC” –
Watta fook. Those Chinese companies slected on the TRX ?) development could not raise funds and the MOU got unilaterally terminated.
Any further news on the reports that Fortune 500 companies / top world companies were invited to bid? Did they bid, or scared out because of the political and other uncertainties in this country.
If they bid, were the lis of participants announced? Was ny bid selected and announced?
