Opposition supporters and stooges will lap everything DAPigs say. Watch my mouth not my action.
In Selangor, Penang, etc, BN is the Oppoistion.
Ture, only open their mouth and no action.
Action on seleweng and songlap 1MDB funds, plenty.
Aiseh, MCA, where to put your faces when got told –
Zahid tells MCA to buck up
the Bandar Tun Razak parliamentary seat:
Zahid said MCA was allowed to contest the seat in two previous general elections, but it was Umno that did all the work.
Itulah..bila ditegur menteri hebat macm Nazri kata orang meroyan. Dunia dah cukup perli Malaysia melalui Jho Low. Kenapa sayang sngat pd pemutar alam Jho Low?Berbillion Rgt wang Negara lesap. Ingat bila pelepah gugur pucuk jgn ketawa. Saya masih menteri, lupa kot? Siapa meroyan?
Malaysia’s debts have crossed the RM1 trillion mark if Putrajaya-backed loans are taken into account, said economists.
They were responding to Prime Minister Najib Razak’s statement recently that Malaysia’s debt would shoot up to RM1.1 trillion if Pakatan Harapan abolished the goods and services tax and existing tolls.
Najib said PH’s promises would plunge Malaysia into a further RM416 million debt on top of the current RM685 billion debt, taking the total amount of debts to more than RM1 trillion.
Former World Bank economist Dr Lim Teck Ghee, however, said it is an election “shock and awe” tactic as the federal government debt is close to RM700 billion as at September 2017.
“And this does not include government-guaranteed debt, including the ones from 1Malaysia Development Bhd, which is more than RM200 million,” Lim told The Malaysian Insight.
“In fact, if the federal government debt under BN continues to grow at the same rate as it has during the past decade, it will reach more than RM1 trillion by 2021; RM2 trillion by 2028 and RM3 trillion by 2032, according to reliable estimates,” said the Centre for Policy Initiatives CEO.
Lim said while the prime minister and BN leaders have a right to ask what happens to the country’s finances when the GST and other important sources of revenue are abolished by Pakatan, he should direct the comments “at his own leadership and government”.
“As to the debt that the younger generation will inherit as a result of government excesses, leakages and mismanagement, many will feel that his warning should be directed at his own leadership and government.
“People in glass houses should not throw stones,” said the former Universiti Sains Malaysia and Universiti Malaya professor.
Other than offering close to RM1.6 billion in cash handouts and debt waivers to key Felda voters and more cash assistance to pensioners, the prime minister had not given any substantive policies to stimulate a lagging economy.
The trouble with Najib is that he doesn’t recognise that we have a problem with the economy. That is Najib’s fundamental problem.
At the moment, Najib sings praises about the economy. But imagine those people who have to work three jobs a day. Imagine what they feel.
They suffer, and they know that they suffer more now compared to five years ago. People know they are economically less prosperous and more disadvantaged than five years ago. And there is a very strong sense of this among the people.
Civil society groups today vowed to fight for the return of CHF104 million (RM430 million) linked to 1Malaysia Development Bhd even as the Swiss Social Democratic Party (SP) drafts a new motion to have the money returned to Malaysia.
Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) director Cynthia Gabriel and Bersih 2.0 acting chairman Shahrul Aman said they uphold their right to pursue justice for the return of the money.
They said with Global Bersih, Swiss civil society group Bruno Manser Fund (BMF) and 110 endorsing Malaysian civil societies, they would continue to build the case.
They also do not buy 1MDB’s excuse the money did not belong to the state investor.
BN’s meek response to The Economist’s scathing article on Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak suggests that Malaysia does not have a good case to defend itself, said constitutional expert Abdul Aziz Bari.
The correct response, he said, was to sue the publication for defamation rather than directing the Malaysian high commissioner to the UK to write to write a letter to the editor of The Economist.
Just learn from Singapore that can sue publictions for defamation, can donate the cost of damage to charities.
H0w to sue? All details of the dirt will come out.
What DoJ said and what appeared in the the Swiss and Spore courts were not fake news.
The majority of rakyat are awakened to the fact that Tun Mahathir with his Bersatu party can only bring down UMNO in GE14 due to the uneven playing field perpetrated and perfected by the UMNO party through blatant gerry-mandered sanctioned by his Election Commission, political harrassment by ROS, MACC and PDRM and relentless brainwashing our our poor rural kampong folks through government mass media from RTM, TV3 and Utusan as well as BTN and JASA with the race and religion narratives that, “Hanya UMNO yang boleh membela kehidupan and hak-milik Melayu” for the past 50 years.
Tun Mahathir must strive to reach out these poor rural voters at Felda Settements and enlightened them about the corrupt practices of MO1 through his unremorseful lying, cheating and stealing of public funds from the hard-earned coffers of their FELDA, Tabung Haji, KWAP and GLCs since Tun Mahathir understand the psychics and thinking of our poor rural kampung folks more than any other opposition parties with his vast 22 years of political experience of PM governing the nation. The rakyat will be deprived of a clean, fair and just GE14 election by MOI through cheating ,vote-rigging with all of the above government machineries at his disposal. Pakatan Harapan and the rakyat must be united as one community to stop the bleeding of our beloved Malaysia with New Hope and New Aspiration to ‘Membina Negara, Memenuhi Harapan’ to make Malaysia proud and great again.
“are awakened to the fact that Tun Mahathir with his Bersatu party can only bring down UMNO in GE14”
Not really, most are “awakened” to the fact that U-Tun Mugathir “Anwar masturbating this man!” McKutty’s PPBM = Pig’s Pe nis Blowjobbers of Mugathir party, as an illegal entity, is due to close any day now.
Dead party won’t be able to do anything – even with “million plus” bogus signatories.
And old old old dying zombie Return of the Mummy longkang pharaoh Mugathir “Memali Monster” McKutty cannot do anything against Najib even after his new desperate attempt to bless sodomy and rehabilitate Anwar!
Just before the election, Najib would get Anwar released, whereupon, Anwar’s first and last deed would be to get his blessed tormentor the Kerala Kobra to bend over!
All are personal tirades, rude, abusive and vulgar, wild allegations, re-cycling of what he has said before, endless name calling like a school boy.
All because he is mad –
Ang Tao Peng is a mad person. Long said to have been diagnosed having schizophrenia.
Despite being periodically reminded to take his pills, he refused to do so. His abuses here must be disabused by responding to his comment each and every time he shows up. So that the non-regular visitors know the comments come from a madman and are not to be believed.
His most obvious schizophrenia symptom is delusions of grandeur. Deluding himself into thinking and claiming he is very clever, very rich, etc, which he is not:
1. Claimed to have degrees from “four top US and UK universities” and a string of professional qualifications and awards. When asked, he refused to say even the names of the universities. When told he’d be checked against the Register of graduates of Oxford or Cambridge Universities, he quickly said the name he uses here (made to look like a genuine, full name) is not his own.
2. Claimed to have “posh” properties in UK, Singapore and Indonesia. Claimed that his family have migrated to Europe bringing their wealth along. Yet admitted he is living in a far-flung, non-commercial or regional centre – Sibu, Sarawak
3. Claimed to “belong to a family of bankers and industrialists” but refused to say whether from Shanghai or where, yet he is living in non-industrial Sarawak
4. Claimed to have many friends. But admitted in here last Chinese New Year eve that he went out to buy fried kuayteow for dinner, eating alone and desolate, on a CNY eve
Other examples showing that he is mad:
1. Always rude, abusive and vulgar in his comments. In the process, he constantly lies, cheats and cons readers here
2. Always puts out loose opinions, makes unsubstantiated, unjustified and not-even-explained wild claims and allegations
3. Often racist, seditious and subversive. Anti-Malays, anti-Islam, even anti-Hakkas and anti-Hokkiens. To the extent that Mubarak Chan has noted an observation that Ang is not a Chinaman
4. Keeps talking about the existence of a “moderator” in a non-moderated blog like STL where anyone can write a comment, click the “Post Comment” button and it’ll automatically appear on the blog page without a moderator making it so
5. At 79 years old, mad Ang often behaves like a child. Always name calling and saying such things as DAP = Dead And Past party, DAP = Duplicitous Amoral Party, DAP = Desperate And Panicky party, etc. Signs that he is mad.
Essentially, 1MDB borrowed money and most of the borrowed money was allegedly stolen by transferring it out through a convoluted process into accounts controlled by an associate of the prime minister, Jho Low.
A total of US$681 million (RM2.7 billion) came into Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s account before US$620 million (RM2.5 billion) was transferred back. These are facts.
It is unprecedented in the annals of Malaysian history. Never before was money “stolen” from a government-owned company (100 percent owned by the Minister of Finance Inc) in such a manner and tens of billions of ringgit at that.
It is much bigger than the Bumiputra Malaysia Finance (or BMF) scandal (RM1.8 billion) and much more blatant and audacious.
There is a hole in 1MDB which at some time will show itself, despite all the denials by the government simply because one cannot hide the movement of international funds.
The government is already engaged in desperate moves to try and fill up these holes such as getting into lopsided contracts with others, including companies from China.
Such things are a double-whammy as more and more money is thrown away through overpriced contracts and the like to try and return money into 1MDB accounts and to perhaps steal some more. No matter what they do, such flows can eventually be traced through the international financial system.
It is through identification of international flows that the US Department of Justice (DOJ) has managed to obtain an overwhelming amount of evidence that money was stolen and laundered for the purchase of luxury assets including a US$27 million pink diamond necklace.
If we don’t collectively get rid of this government and hold it to account for all the losses incurred at 1MDB, the future of this country is very bleak indeed.
Now this MO1 guy admitted we have 1 trillion debts that he has created. So we know he has abused the collection of GST to pay for his luxury living and his robbery. Guys kick him out. How much more is he going to enrich himself? Enough is enough!
The incumbent for Pekan is so inundated with questions from all over the world about 1MDB, he forgot his constituents are drowning from flood waters. You cannot point to Selangor’s localized water problems and compare it to the scale of 1MDB’s damage to the entire nation and its future viability as a economic destination.
Kurang Ajar Tulisan Cina Bukit
Pendatang ini kurang ajar tak habis habis. Di beritahu dengan Bahasa Inggeris berkali kali pasal menggunakan tulisan cacing di blog yang biasa dengan BI dan BM, tidak di peduli nya. Tak hormatkan Perlembagaan Negara berkenaan penggunaan BM dan bahasa ibunda.
Ini nyata Cina Bukit, turun temurun “hill tribes of South China” yang professor sejarah kata menduduki Selatan China sabelom penduduk Utara China turun ke selatan beribu tahun dahulu. Berkahwin campuran dah beribu tahun, tapi tabi’at Cina Bukit itu tidak hilang.
Mereka di bawa ke negara ini dek celaka British kolonial sebagai kuli (coolies) di abad 19. Cina Bukit sudah tentu tidak bertamadun, tak reti bahasa, tak hormatkan sesiapa, tak hormatkan Perlembagaan negara berkenaan Bahasa Kebangsaan, maka telah di halau berhijrah ke negara yang Perlembagaan nya mereka hormati.
If you don’t respect and abide by the Constitution of the country fully, you should leave. You’ll be happy and others left behind will also be happy.
If You Are Not Proud To Be Malaysian, Go Far Away, no need to stay here – Najib in Kota Bahru
If you don’t agree with the constitution, leave
Muslim NGO chief Ismail Mina Ahmad: If you don’t agree with the constitution, leave
The leader of a group of Islamic NGOs has called on those who don’t agree with the Federal Constitution to find another country to live.
Gerakan Pembela Ummah (Ummah defenders movement, Ummah) chairperson Ismail Mina Ahmad also said that those who seek to change the constitution should be opposed. (The sensitive Articles of the Constitution are protected by the Sedition Act, cannot be discussed, let alone be amended).
“We urge all citizens to defend and respect the Federal Constitution. All attempt to give a (different) interpretation or to confuse or change (the constitution) must be opposed.
“So whoever doesn’t agree with the Federal Constitution, they can go find a country that suits them and go live there,” Ismail Mina said in his keynote address at the Ummah Uprising convention in Kuala Lumpur today…
MCA Civil War?
A plan to field Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s political secretary Wong Nai Chee in Alor Gajah has sparked revolt among local BN ranks.
According to Oriental Daily, MCA president Liow Tiong Lai reportedly informed incumbent Alor Gajah MP Koh Nai Kwong last night that he would be moved to the Machap state seat, which falls within the Alor Gajah parliamentary constituency.
Alor Gajah MCA responded by cancelling a party event scheduled for this Friday, with division secretary Chew Chong Lin even lashing out at Liow.
Chew told Sin Chew Daily that Liow, as MCA president, should not abuse his power to decide on election candidates, as it could result in a backlash.
The crisis in Alor Gajah has no bearing on how MCA will fare in GE14. Whoever MCA fields in any seats will make no difference to its political future. Malaysian Canine Association as far as the Chinese are concerned is on artificial life support which will be shut off after GE14.
Called ‘thief’ twice in 48 hours, Kit Siang wonders if Najib will sue.
But Najib said he would sue WSJ, NYT etc a few years ago, still he has not sued until now.
A court case will spill all the beans. Therefore, he’d rather not sue.
The beans will cause huge stomach aches.
期望美國司法部在大選前送個大禮給馬來西亞人民，1MDB 案件大披露 ！！
Despite being told in the past,
the bloke comes out again with worm writing in a blog where the readers are used to BI or BM, possibly thinking his is a higher culture, not respecting the Constitution of the country Article 152 stating the National Language of the country is BM.
He should read the following:
The Myth of the Chinese Cultural Pre-eminence
Ancient Chinese records aggrandized Chinese culture while at the same time denying the achievements of other cultures and races. Chinese historical documents had often been re-written, making it difficult to ascertain the truths.
The burning of the books occurred not just over 2,000 years ago during Emperor Chin Shih Huang Di, but also in the 1960s during the so-called Cultural Revolution of Mao Zedong.
Chinese history claimed China as the “Middle Kingdom”, others around them, and even far away, as “barbaric and uncivilized”.
Those thinking theirs is a higher culture and others have a lower one must read what History Professor Wang Gung-Wu (formerly of Universiti Malaya, now in Singapore?) said in his essay “Early Ming Relations with S.E.Asia” pg. 36:
“ … All peoples who believed that they alone were civilized did so because they thought their neighbours less civilized than themselves. This view was often proved wrong by subsequent contact with other civilized peoples.”
Another academician, Albert Kolb, also pointed out in his book, “East Asia”, 1971,
“For a long time, it (Chinese culture) was taken to be older, and possibly also richer in original features, than in fact it is”. (Pg 25).
“Chinese culture cannot be thought of as originally Chinese because the Chinese themselves emerged gradually as a blend of many races and peoples”. (Pg 26).
According to Professor Wolfram Eberhard, in his book “A History of China”, 1977, writings about ancient China were inventions of a later period, what were said to have been done by the Chinese rulers and the dates they were said to have been done appeared to be even later still. All these indicated that historical writings in China were meant to serve certain politico-ethical objectives.
These are the words Professor Eberhard himself wrote:
“Furthermore, we can now state with certainty that the historical data which were given in written documents for times down to 1,000 BC are false. They are the result of astronomical-astrological calculations, made by specialists of later times who pursued their own special political aims by doing these calculations”. (Pg 1).
If you don’t respect and abide by the Constitution of the country fully, you should leave. You’ll be happy and others lefyt ehind will also be happy.
Without instructions and approval from the Chairman of 1MDB’s Board of Advisors, do you think the money could had been stolen and remitted to various countries? By remaining silent, ensuring inaction by various enforcement authorities of Malaysia and declaring Auditor General report on 1MDB as Official Secret Act will not disassociate MO1 from money laundering charges. Ahmad Rasidi’s letter will not stop the whole world from slandering our Prime Minister. We know the reasons why MO1 will never bring any action to any court against those who slandered him because he will be like jellyfish melting under the sun when taken out from the sea.
” These are facts.”
You mean just like:
Anwar is a sodomiser,
Anwar is not a sodomiser?!!!
Or Mugathir’s father was not a “Malay”,
Mugathir’s father was a “Malay”?
And, of course, the Kerala Kobra would become PM for life and get Anwar released so that Anwar can become PM!
“Phcuk me!” is what the Kerala sarabat stall performing fakir Mugathir “Anwar masturbating this man!” McKutty should say to Anwar!
And Anwar will!
Komen bodoh tak akan di jawab
DAP’s stand against adultery?
Why not ask the Umno guy reported to have a “Port Dickson hotel affair”?
Fake news? Just because it is about an Umno guy? Fake news only for stories whacking the Opposition?
If you think so, lkamu sikola mana?
Having the evidence of “Port Dickson hotel affair”, Isa samad will not be charged for the Felda Jalan Semarak issue by MO1.
“DAP’s stand against adultery?”
Ain’t it: Blessed are the adulterers, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs?
Blessed is the DAP = Deviants And Philanderers party.
Tun Mahathir confident about Pakatan Harapan’s chances, believing that the opposition coalition can capture more than 100 seats in Peninsular Malaysia.
“If we have the support from Sabah and Sarawak, and a lot of them are supportive of us, I think we can form the government,” he said.
Of course Umno/Bn will continue using very unfair tactics, including gerrymandering, cash handouts of government money. But the voters are fed up with the 1MDB “theft, robbery and the Bugisman piracy” (re Tun M) , the hugelu unpopular GST, t.he ever increasing prices of goods.
Yes, Pakatan Harapan can form the government after Pru14.
“with the support from Sabah and Sarawak” –
The following report on the frustration of voters in Sabah and Sarawak shows Pakatan Harapan can form the government at Pru14 –
Prices of goods in rural areas still too expensive in Sabah, Sarawak’
Ago Anak Dagang (BN-Kanowit) said the prices of goods, especially in remote and rural areas in the two states, were still considered more expensive than in the urban areas.
“Through the current system, the goods are delivered through a third party.
“However, prices of the goods is still more expensive. This system does not work.
Najib Razak, when tabling the 2018 Budget in Parliament last year, had announced that the government would continue the Essential Goods Price Standardisation Programme in Sabah and Sarawak, with a total allocation of RM80 million.
Where got effect? Where did the money go? Note that the report is by Bernama, the gomen’s national news agency, therefore cannot be fake news.
Following Mahathir’s reconciliation with Anwar, he had repeatedly denied that his move to dismiss the latter as deputy prime minister in 1998 was political, instead blaming the police.
But the latest imprisonment of Anwar was on a sodomy charge during Najib’s PMship. Anwar had taken the Opposition to winning the popular vote and giving Najib the worst election results in Pru13.
Who was responsible for having that charge brought up – up to you to decide.
Sunshine, you approve of holy sodomy, then?!
Another komen bodoh – people talking about who was responsible for the sodomy charge, the bastard Ang talks about approval of socomy.
Actually, it’s komen gila. Gila has no bounds – short comments, long comments. Especially those showing his delusion of grandeur, a clear symptom of schizophrenia.
Six countries have taken action on 1MDB so ar, including Switzerland, US and Singapore.
Now the British Financial Times says: UK authorities face calls to get tougher on 1MDB matter
International watchdog Global Witness has been putting pressure on UK financial regulators to take tougher action in the 1MDB matter, according to the Financial Times.
Specifically, Global Witness wants the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to investigate the Royal Bank of Scotland and Standard Chartered, both UK-based banks, for handling more than US$2 billion funds allegedly embezzled from 1MDB.
Both banks were fined by Swiss and Singaporean regulators in relation to the 1MDB matter while US authorities are still investigating the entities.
“Just because foreign regulators have investigated it doesn’t let the FCA off the hook,” Global Witness senior campaigner on banks and corruption Murray Worthy was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, adding to Global Witness’ voice was UK Labour MP and anti-corruption campaigner Margaret Hodge.
“It is time for the FCA to take firm action to hold banks that handle dirty money to account (and to) explain its apparent inaction over this case when other countries completed their investigations over a year ago,” she was quoted as saying.
The US Department of Justice (DOJ) believed at least US$4.5 billion in funds was allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB and laundered through the US financial system to acquire various assets.
The DOJ has sought to seize around US$1.7 billion in assets allegedly acquired using the stolen money.
Is the following fake news?
DoJ has a Kleptocracy Division dedicated to the promotion of democracy and getting rid of Kleptocracy, therefore does not sound logical wanting the US court to seal 1MDB-related status updates.
The US Department of Justice is seeking to provide updates on 1MDB-related cases to a US court behind closed doors as claimed by Malaysiakini.
“Contemporaneously with the filing of this status report, the government is submitting a request to file, under seal and in camera, a more detailed declaration and status report.”
The US Embassy in Malaysia should be reporting and advising the US government of the deluge of comments and opinions expressed in Malaysia wanting the DoJ help in getting rid of Kleptocracy in this country.
The above could indeed be fake news.
The Special Adviser to Najib’s government on socio-cultural matters, Rais Yatim, does not say things in the category of fake news when he talks on 1MDB –
Rais Yatim said: “This Malaysian (Jho Low) was hunted in eight countries in relation to the misappropriation of billions in 1MDB funds. I am only asking that those responsible open an investigation paper and do their jobs,” said Rais Yatim in a Twitter post.
Thats is what Rais, who carries the status of a minister, said when telling his colleague, Salleh Said Keruak, to “spare the sarcasm” after Rais was accused by the communications and multimedia minister of being influenced, among others, by the foreign media.
Meanwhile, Jailani was asked by a commenter to:
1. Make public the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report that is classified under Official Secrets Act (OSA).
2. Sue Indonesia’s Tempo, sue the DOJ, sue WSJ and any news media that have published damaging articles on 1MDB and MO1.
3. Take legal action against countries that have prosecuted people found to have committed wrong involving 1MDB.
4. Disclose all of 1MDB accounts and show us that its billions have “not” been lost.
5. Ask Jho Low to return to Malaysia and address the nation in public since all of you have declared he has done no wrong.
Special adviser to the government Rais Yatim has questioned the apparent love for businessperson Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Taek by certain quarters.
Rais said this in response to Tourism and Culture Minister Nazri Abdul Aziz’s criticism of him after he raised concerns about Low and 1MDB.
“When criticism is made (about 1MDB), “menteri hebat” such as Nazri accuse people of whining (meroyan).
“The world has made a mockery out of Malaysia due to Jho Low.
“Why the love for the spinner Jho Low? Billions of ringgit belonging to the country have disappeared,” he said in a Twitter posting.
Rais Yatim is serving under a kleptocrat and a known thief and a murderer called MO1. Everyone know it and Rais knows it. Jho Low is the henchman for MO1 and if Rais is questioning why MO1 is supporting Jho Low, the only decent and principled thing for Rais to do is to resign his post and from UMNO and join the Opposition to fight MO1. There is no need to wait for Najib to tell him to quit.
He’s better inside than outside the Umno/Bn circuit.
Alhamdulillah, more effective whacking of Najib, say Pakatan Rakyat guys.
“UK authorities face calls to get tougher on 1MDB matter”
Did they, really?
So what are the RBS and HSBC, then?!
Asking silly questions, you get no answer.
Damn lazy rentseeker.
Associate Professor Maszlee: Bersatu will set ‘Malay tsunami’ in motion
A series of events have unfolded since the myriad 1MDB exposés by international publications, but the most significant could be Najib’s expelling of TS Muhyiddin Yassin.from the post of Deputy Prime Minister.
Muhyiddin’s departure was followed by former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad quitting Umno to form Bersatu.
New Bersatu recruit, Assoc Professor Maszlee said, “With Mahathir and Muhyiddin leaving Umno, we never thought that a new party would emerge in order to capture the Malay votes, hence erasing all their (voters’) fears of uncertainty or insecurity.
“Bersatu has that role in enabling or ensuring the coming of the Malay tsunami,” said Maszlee.
BN now have confidence only in a few –
Report: More BN leaders to be given ‘two seats’ task
BN likely to field ‘popular’ leaders like Zambry in both Parliament and state assembly elections.
Many others are no longer popular? The new ones have no chance?
Why no Indian Tsunami?
Are they too consumed with nambikei and BR1M dedak and forget their fiture?
Not even an Indian ripple!
“Bersatu will set ‘Malay tsunami’ in motion”
“Motion” obviously meaning shit!
As in passing motion.
As in PPBM = Pigs Passing Bersatu Motion.
But crazy bastard Ang Tiunama Peng even eats his own shit.
A silly comment gets a reply in kind.
Deputy Minister for Communications and Multimedia Jailani Johari, as quoted by the Malay language Sinar Harian daily, has warned the foreign media against publishing “fake news” linking Najib to 1MDB.
“The ministry has identified several news portals that are trying to revive the 1MDB issue following the seizure of the Equanimity. Among those portals are The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Economist, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and the latest, MSNBC,” he was quoted as saying on Sunday (March 11) by Sinar Harian.
Is he joking? Is he very smart saying so? The government has not sued those organizations since some of them broke the news ages ago.
Will Najib sue foreign media for calling him a thief, asks Kit Siang
The Malaysian Insight
‘IT’S THE MALAYSIAN GOVT WHO SHOULD SEIZE JHO LOW’S YACHT & ARREST HIM’: MAHATHIR
It is more likely Najib, after winning the coming election, will seize Mugathir “Anwar masturbating this man!” McKutty’s and his child
Aren and cronies’ assets!
And Anwar would asset or ass-phcuk Mugathir foremost and last, once Najib gets him released!
Nonsensical talk from a mad bastard Ang Tiunama.
His madness has been explained time and again.
The government has met with internet giants Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, as well as the Asia Internet Coalition, to get feedback on its proposed fake news legislation.
“The discussion received a positive response from the social media providers,” Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Azalina Othman Said said in a statement today.
Wonder how she arrived at that conclusion.
.. Facebook’s refusal to share data undermines global response to fake news
The social network’s refusal to give access to its treasure trove of data is harming countries’ response to fake news.
The company refuses to give researchers, academics and journalists access to data it collects on people’s individual Facebook pages. That makes it almost impossible to track, analyze and predict how waves of online misinformation — last week’s Italian election again showed how such fake news could circulate rapidly among voters — are spread on the world’s largest social network.
Disinformation, spread by homegrown activists and foreign actors, is now part of almost every country’s election cycle. And without a full understanding of what is posted and circulated on the social networking giant, policymakers in Brussels, London and Washington are left fighting blind when figuring out how best to tackle online misinformation just as people’s trust in what they read online has hit an all-time low.
Facebook rejects claims that it’s not doing its part in tackling fake news … it can’t just hand over people’s data to any researcher or journalist that asks for it.
Without such independent research, countries’ lawmakers must rely on the company’s own analysis about what type of misinformation is spreading in this no-go zone
Facebook officials cite fears that sharing private data would create a precedent in which others (read: the authorities) could also come calling.
Ms Azalina, who heads the special committee on fake news that is drafting the new law, said it would curb fake news that threatens public order and national security.
“The law drafted will also protect society from becoming victims of fake news. I believe it can curb the global phenomenon of fake news and false information from becoming viral and cancerous to the nation,” she said.
But there are so many laws that cover “fake news” already. Including the Sedition Act, the Penal Code, etc.
What the heck, some one said there are hundreds of existing statutes and regulations that cover those misdeeds stated by Azalina.
The issue is enforcement of those rules and regulations. Not more rules and regulations.
DPM Ahmad Zahid said that the media and Government should work together on how to resolve challenges faced by print and electronic media in the wake of alternative media. On a bright day, you can see some sparks flying around.
He also raised the issue of self-regulation in the media industry, saying one way would be the setting up of a council or appointing ombudsmen.
Last year, the Home Ministry issued one stern warning letter, two warnings, 14 reminders, 44 advisory and four show-cause letters for violations under the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984.
There you go. There’s also the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984.
So much hoo haa about “fake news law” just to frighten the voters for Pakatan Harapan into silence and acquiescence during the Pru14 campaigning?
Be fair lorr. I want a “fair law” law.
“just to frighten the voters for Pakatan Harapan into silence and acquiescence during the Pru14 campaigning”
And they should be!
Pantakan Harakiri supporters are more than often ignorant, witless, uncultured and uncivilised fcukwits – who always fcuk themselves as they try to fcuk others!
Better warnings or even a law to protect the monkeys against themselves – as they fcuk themselves out of any election victory!
That’s your opinion. Which is shit.
Mine is much better. Which is all the opposite of yours.
But I won’t claim to be a genius. Only mad bastards like you do.
Najib told the audience at the “Budget with the People: Civil Servants” at Kolej Sains Kesihatan Bersekutu, Tanjung Rambutan that he has often been the victim of fake news.
He has been told to sue Sarawak Report, WSJ, NYT etc but has not done so. That shows it’s not fake news.
MP: Will PM take legal action against foreign media?
Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching said that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has a habit of suing critics and media organisations locally, but does not appear to have the appetite to do the same abroad.
“That shows it’s not fake news.”
The half-eyed Taiko BrylcLim Kutty Siang said he went to see his lawyers about suing that RPK for saying he had a RM1 billion bribe from the Kerala Kobra Koolie Krook Konman Mugathir “Anwar masturbating this man!” McKutty.
Nobody’s ever heard anything about that from the old old old half an eyed babi butcher’s scum anymore!
Who wants to believe the half Mat Salleh bastard RPK?
Robert Kuok is already suing him – at least reportedly taking some action against him.
Just like the mad Ang Tiunama Peng bastard. But nobody wants to sue Ang. Because they won’t get anything out of him – he has no money or anything except his dong and two marbles.
Now the MO1 thief will be linked to $$1 trillion debt! The end is coming. He is so disbelieved by the rakyat that people jump to bad conclusions when he opens his mouth.
Harapan can finance the existing debt and the loss of revenue from possible GST reduction/elimination by transparent tendering for public sector deals, by limiting civil service automatic replacements of natural attrition (resignations/retirements/death/boarding-out) and many other ways. Also Pakatan can recover the 1MDB loot from the thief, his step son and Jho Low.
GIVE PH A CHANCE! They have already demonstrated what they can do in 10 years governing Selangor and Penang.
The PH leader Tun Dr Mahathir, has ruled the country for 22 years.
More experience in ruling the country than any one else.
PH certainly has the experience and the ability to rule the country.
“More experience in ruling the country than any one else.”
That’s why Barry Wain called him a corrupt dictator thief mother of all thieves!
And why Lee Kuan Yew spat on him and treated the blackie Kerala monkey like a toe rag!
Again, just the opinions and wild allegations of frustrated blokes.
Actually, it’s Tun Mahathir who treated LKY like he did not exist – he simply ignored LKY.
Pakatan Harapan (PH) had pledged to remove goods and services tax (GST) in its election manifesto last week.
Ministry of Finance secretary-general Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah told The Star the country stood to lose RM45 billion a year if it abolished the GST.
But the PH gomen will do savings in expenditure (like no more executive jet and other perks for the PM’s wife) and impose taxes that don’t burden the poor and the low income.
Najib and family are used to luxurious life like eating special rice imported from South America and such – does he care about the poor and the low income?
Pssst, are questions also fake news? Hehe.
“But the PH gomen will do savings in expenditure”
And like the hundreds of millions s”Splash” out on undersea tunnel “consultancy fees”, too!
Not to mention that permanent haemorrhage of public money on that crap Proton “drainchild” of moron self-proclaimed automaker Kerala bukit sarabat stall fakir bullockshitter Mugathir “Anwar masturbating this man!” McKutty, a used bullock cart salesman!
Thank Allah, the Chinese saviours took over Proton, the next best thing they do would be to get rid of those useless Mugathir-bred parasite concessionaires still wanting the country to fund them!
Of course the bastard Ang Tiunama Commie Chinese Secret Agent Provocateur will try to drive a wedge between the races in Malaysia.
Talking about ridding the Bumiputera Proton concessionaires.
Now even instigating the Commie Chinese to do so. He could have spoken to his Commie Chinese Masters about that but was told to shut up.
Aaaah, the fate of small fries .. undeclared .. only as a Secret Agent, too.
The consultancy fees “splash” are mere allegations.
But DoJ has started court actions on seizure of assets related to 1MDB “stealing, robbing and pirating (according to TDM) and money laundering.
Pakatan Harapan is coming in for the first time in this GE. How can Najib accuse PH’s manifesto of increasing the nation’s debt. He must be a magician to know the outcome with one look at the manifesto. Look at your back Najib, see the loads & loads of debts behind you. Don’t try to pull wool on our eyes. Better get ready to give up your “blufology” & stand for a free & fair election.
It’s called guilty conscience.
Wonder how much concience he has in other aspects of politics.
Or the economy.
Or the elections.
“How can Najib accuse PH’s manifesto of increasing the nation’s debt. He must be a magician to know the outcome”
He doesn’t need to be anty “magician”.
Pantakan Harakiri champions the champion of all ultra big-time losses made by that ignorant moron Kerala bukit that Kerala Kobra Koolie Krook Konman soiled Kelingnex ar sewipe Mugathir “BNM Massacre” McKutty.
Every mega project and every little project the Kerala Kobra touched turned into mega losses that bled public fund massively!
If anything, Mugathir is a magician at making money disappear, he is a great Kerala sarabat stall performing fakir!
Don’t be stupid, bastard Ang Tiunama.
The 500 acres of prime land that was the Sg Besi old airport has gone dunno where under Najib.
Bandar Tun Razak developers are also quiet. Maybe got whacked by the Chinese government tightening controls on outflow of money from China to protect their own currency.
too mor days march 17, 2018 come.
any balls to bubar kah! or still search the “sparking ball”

Subservient to Umno has been MCA’s culture. According to the Negri Sembilan MCA liaison chairman, MCA wasn’t informed over Zahid’s visit. Obviously MCA was sidelined. This N.sembilan MCA man should have openly voiced & protest for being sabotaged. Regrettably, he just mentioned that the non invitation to MCA by the organiser must be an unintentional & of technical error. For past six decades, MCA’s inherent gutless, selfish culture has been distasteful to all especially the ethnic Chinese. It’s a matter of time MCA vanish from the political platform in Malaysia.
This was the background –
MCA bashing continues, this time Zahid does it in Rembau
Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also deputy BN chairperson, has again ticked off MCA over its electoral preparations.
Speaking in Rembau today, Zahid criticised Negeri Sembilan MCA for failing to send a representative to a BN event.
When Zahid visited the parliamentary constituency of Bandar Tun Razak yesterday, he also ticked off the local MCA division.
“Twice we have given MCA this seat, isn’t that true?
“Who did the work? Umno did,” he had said.
Habis lah MCA.
That miserable State MCA chief Lim Chin Fui appears to be doing UMNO a favour by making excuses for them, that is was the fault of the organiser, must be a technical issue, that a mistake was made. Lim’s statement was exactly what would be expected of a lily-livered servant in the presence of a terrifying bully. And I suppose tomorrow it would be all kiss-and-make-up. Don’t forget the selfies.
MCA will be the biggest loser in Johor in the next elections, losing three out of the four parliamentary seats in the state, analysts said.
The second-largest component party in Barisan Nasional is only likely to retain Ayer Hitam currently held by its deputy, Wee Ka Siong.
“In Johor, MCA seats are the most at risk,” Ilham Centre executive director Hisommudin Bakar told The Malaysian Insight.
Similar to Selangor, Johor has many mixed seats. Based on 2015 statistics, Johor has 55% Malay, Chinese (30%), Indian (6.5%) and others (8%).
If DAP fields its star candidates, such as Liew Chin Tong, Teo Nie Ching and Wong Shu Qi, in southern and central Johor, MCA is at risk of being wiped out.
He said: “80% of the Chinese voters are pro-opposition. If DAP puts out strong candidates, it will win big.”
“If DAP puts out strong candidates, it will win big.”
So why the need to dig out that old old old zombie from the land of the living dead, and rehabilitate the pharaoh’s mummy Mugathir “Anwar masturbating this man!” McKutty, then?!
Obviously those DAP = Dead And Perished party monkeys can’t win without churning the corpse of the Kerala Indian who has to join a Chinese party in order to be a 2%”Malay”!
Now make us laugh!
Free food handout from Turtle Tokong’s dato sri Kerala roti and Melaka baba roti cina roadshow!
You have no clue about politics, eh?
But being a mad bastard Ang Tiunama, you are excused.
The readers here are laughing at you.
Poor MCA, Liow now crying at Zahid openly criticizing MCA –
Inappropriate for Zahid to openly criticise MCA, says Liow
MCA president Liow Tiong Lai said it was inappropriate for Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also the BN deputy chairperson, to openly criticise MCA.
This was after Zahid reportedly chastised the party for their apparent failure to turn up at a BN event in Rembau yesterday.
1MDB: RM430m seized by Swiss gov’t doesn’t belong to us
Wo said so? 1MDB said so? So many people disagree with that.
Instead, 1MDB claimed the seizure revolved around a dispute between Swiss banks and the Swiss government.
“According to the Swiss Finance Minister Ueli Maurer, the relevant banks have disputed the actions of Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (Finma) and are appealing the action in the Federal Administration Court.
“Thus, the CHF104 million is being claimed by the relevant banks. 1MDB said the amount was the disgorgement of profits ordered by Finma against certain banks, which allegedly violated Swiss law.
1MDB insisted that none of its funds had been misappropriated. People don’t believe that. Until the 1MDB audited accounts and the Auditor General’s Report on them are released to the public info, not hidden under the OSA.
Nazri: Rais, Rafidah are ‘frustrated people’
Really? If they frustrated, what are you?
I have so many words to describe you.
But my parents taught me manners and I will say things with decorum and decency.
The Court of Appeal has reinstated the government as a defendant in the RM100 million suit filed by Shaariibuu Setev and his grandchildren over the death of Mongolian translator and model Altantuya Shaariibuu.
What exactly are fake news? How would they define fake news? Those questions have been asked many times but no answer.
A report in the well respected TIME magazine says the lexicographers – those who watch words spread – are still tracking the way people use them and have not even defined fake news. So, how is the Malaysian government trying to define words that are not even in the dictionaries yet?
One opinion given: Though Donald Trump is partly responsible for the currency of that phrase, the definition won’t be true to the way he generally uses the term so much as the way it is used to describe alleged attempts by Russia to meddle in the 2016 election. The definition will be something like this:
fake news: false news stories, often of a sensational nature, created to be widely shared online for the purpose of generating ad revenue via web traffic or discrediting a public figure, political movement, company, etc.
But the fake news law being drafted by the Malaysian government has anything to do with “ad revenue”?
Trump might claim that this definition works just fine — that when he sums up all the work done by CNN, ABC, CBS, the New York Times and the Washington Post as “Fake News!” in a single tweet – this is precisely what he means: that those outlets are producing false stories aimed at discrediting him, Public Figure No. 1.
So, can fake news law be based on the Trumpian single tweet?
Although Trump does deploy the term to highlight errors, both the President and his supporters use “fake news” to cast a wide net over plenty of articles that are chock full of truth and facts. In general, the Trumpian version of the phrase functions more as a slur against mainstream media outlets that some conservatives believe are inherently flawed by an unacknowledged liberal bias.
Hence the fear of the public: “slur against mainstream media outlets.”
What is mainstream in US is not necessarily so in Malaysia.
That needs another definition!
Gelang Patah MP Lim Kit Siang has questioned why a special committee involving MPs from both sides of the political divide had not been formed in formulating the anti-fake news law.
In a meeting in Parliament today he asked why has the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Azalina Othman Said ‘not honoured her undertaking that the Fake News Bill would be formulated by a special committee involving MPs from both sides of the divide.’
So many questions. So few answers.
The TIME magazine article says Americans don’t seem to agree on much these days, including the meaning of words, and that goes doubly for politically fraught ones. More so of Malaysians – and English is not our mother tongue.
Even terms like white supremacy are undergoing shifts. While some might hear “white supremacy” and envision neo-Nazis advocating for a white ethnic state, others are now using the term to refer to societies in which white people have historically had rights other groups have not (to vote, to own land) and continue to have privileges others do not. In the former sense, it is an odious vision. In the latter, it’s reality.
“There are two very real senses of fake news out there,” says Dictionary.com’s lexicographer Jane Solomon, “and we have chosen in our next update to only define one of them.” In part, she says, that decision turned on the lexicographer’s principle of defining what is probable versus what is possible. Note that those are the thinking of the lexicographer. What about the law drafters and law makers?
Many people have been turning to dictionaries to look up a definition for fake news – Oxford says it is one of their most common failed searches (no results) these days – and Solomon wants people to get a definition that reflects “the wider understanding of what fake news means.” The Malaysian drafters of fake news law should do that, too.
Dictionary.com’s choice also reflects lexicographers’ deep commitment to neutrality. They don’t define words because they like them or write definitions that fit their ways of thinking: they do their best to mechanically reflect and distill the ways in which English speakers are using words in daily life. Sometimes that means adding “usage notes” about the context in which a word was popularized or adding a label like slang or derogatory in front of the definition. But would the fake news law being drafted in Malaysia fully take into account all these? Would they have neutrality in mind when defining the words “fake news”? I seriously doubt it. Their intent is not lexicography but political. Like all laws are.
But sometimes that commitment means not adding a definition at all. A word’s inclusion in a dictionary confers legitimacy on both words and the meanings that accompany them, which is why definitions are summoned in legal arguments and cited in court opinions. And that is why no respectable dictionary is ever going to write a definition for fake news that simply reads “the failing New York Times.” Hahaha.
Craig Leyland, a senior editor at the Oxford English Dictionary who works on new words, says that they’re keeping a close eye on the phrase but have not broken out started to defiine fake news yet because the meaning is still evolving. The term has been used since the 1800s, he says, and for most of that time, its meaning was obvious, no more than a synonym for “false news” or “spurious news.” But fake news has “gained an extra layer of meaning” since gaining prominence over the last year, he says, “so that now there’s a case for us to define it.”
So, the English language speakers have not even defined fake news but the Malaysians are starting to do it?
” fake news meaning is still evolving”
So if Malaysia makes fake news law and later Oxford dictionary defines the words but different from the fake news law, how?
Ban Oxford dictionary? Amend the fake news law? Or run away from this planet?
Note that only recently before he died yesterday, the genius Astrophysics Professor Stephen Hawking warned mankind to migrate to another planet in the next 200 years or we will become extinct.
Life on Earth could be wiped out by a disaster such as an asteroid strike, AI or an alien invasion, over-population, human aggression or climate change. (Human aggression includes politically motivated?)
He believed, if our species had any hope of survival, future generations would need to forge a new life in space.
Russian President Vladimir Putin about a week ago said if Russia is attacked with nuclear weapons, he will wipe out the world “because what’s the use of the world if there are no more Russians? Or words to that effect.
The Professor’s warning has solid basis.
But Umno/Bn do not have to leave Earth!
“The Professor’s warning has solid basis.”
And where is that, then, in relation to “Russian President Vladimir Putin about a week ago said”?!

And so the bastard Ang Tiunama Peng comes in again. The same style as before, in the attempt to show he is more than one person – using two names. He has been known to be a split personality, suffering from a multiple personality disorder as well.
But his usually being rude, abusive and vulgar has come out again, using the intentionally misspelt word dick and such. The medication given him intravenously at the mental hospital when he was last straight-jacketed and rushed there by the ambulance must have worn out its effect. Soon he’d make a nuisance of himself in public again, an ambulance called, he’d be straight-jacketed, rushed to the mental hospital again. And he’d disappear from here for the duration of the treatment, peace would prevail here until he gets discharged again.
He having been diagnosed with schizophrenia can be expected to be like that from time to time.
Hannah the hypocrite hippo is selective in her “righteous” condemnation and pontification, and that is typical of all those using the Almighty’s name in vain.
While the big barrel of lard wobbles around calling herself “God-fearing”, there has never been any evidence the Almighty gives the blessed shit about the Hypocrite Hippo’s claim.
Anyone can claim s/he is doing God’s work, and the bigges deluded, liars are frauds are best at that!
The biggest Hippo of all is the bastard Ang Tiunama Peng now trying to show there are two of him blogging in here, in different names. Constantly lying, cheating and conning readers, as explained in his CV.
He claimed to be a no-God Free Thinker but shows aoncerned about “God Almighty”. Twisted tongue, forked tongue bugger.
Every now and then Hannah the Hypocrite Hippo would dress up like a Muslim to fool Muslims how accepting and tolerant she is toward the Muslims.
If she is tolerant and accepting toward the Muslims, there is absolutely no barrier to her becoming a Muslim at all.
But why is it the Hypocrite Hippo does not want to be a Muslim?
It is simply because she thinks there is nothing in Islam that would interest her enough to want to change her religion, and merely acting accepting and tolerant – and,of course, covering her grotesque fat barrel of lard with a large Muslim attire would be as far as she would go to look generous to the Muslims.
And, I suppose her Muslim supporters ought to feel very grateful for her token gesture.
The foul-mouthed bastard Ang Tiunama Peng is at it again.
Always rude, abusive and vulgar, but after disappearing (rushed to the mental hospital by the ambulance in a straight jacket), he’d not use vulgar words. Until his mental illness shows again.
When mad, he’s anti-everything. But then, that’s what madness is all about.
Take your pills, mad bastard old man Ang Tiunama.
Can Chris now go and have another three wives?
… and with the blessing of the fat barrel of lard Hannah the Hyprocrite Hippo, Amen?!
They all can have wives. But the bastard Ang Tiunama Peng can’t. At 80 years old his dong no longer stands to attention.
Wow! You have wet dreams with fantasies of mounting a fat Hannah the Hypocrite Hippo, eh?!

Aiseh, Ang Tiunama, why make a fool of yourself in here? Stay out and you won’t be made a clot.
If you have to come in, write sensible stuff, man. Don’t be a stupid idiot like you always have been.
You show your stupidity right from your 2nd paragraph.
Then back to your usual idiotic accusation on “known human language” when you, as a Shanghai dog, know only to bark. Kung kung.
Then show your delusion of grandeur, symptom of schizophrenia, madly claiming others “cannot match my posts for quality and sense – and brilliant use of the English language in a million light years!” Take your pills, mad old man Ang.

Wow, Forest City project in Johor still gets whacked even from as far away as New York.
New York Times headlined it as “A Malaysian Insta-City Becomes a Flash Point for Chinese Colonialism — and Capital Flight”
Forest City is expected to accommodate 700,000 residents. It is billed as one of China’s biggest overseas development projects, but it is hardly the world’s first insta-city. In the last two decades, more than 100 new cities have been (or are being) created from scratch, according to Sarah Moser, an assistant professor of geography at Montreal’s McGill University. They exist even in Nigeria, Uganda, Myanmar and Indonesia.
Nepali guards patrol Forest City around the clock — in part, one salesman said, because Chinese clients might not feel comfortable interacting with local Muslims.
The sheer volume in sales means that Forest City raked in more than $3 billion in 2016 alone, according to the company. Much of this money was Chinese flight capital, but Country Garden has tried to make buying into Forest City seem almost patriotic. One Olympic-themed show unit features the gold-medal shooters Du Li and Pang Wei, who have invested here, too.
A sign proclaims in Chinese: “Welcome home, Olympic champions!” The blokes trying to glorify China’s athletes’ success claiming this is thier home, they of course don’t care about the sentiments of the local people. Ultra kiasus.
“Flash Point for Chinese Colonialism,” said the NYT news heading. Damn the locals allowing that.
Repeat, for effect –
Forest City encountered significant setbacks in 2017. The uncomfortable fact that hundreds of thousands (at an average 4 per family, they may total 2.8 million) of Chinese may soon be residents of Malaysia led a former prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, to lash out at the project last year. “We should realize that once we sell land to others, we no longer have any ownership over it,” he said. The sultan of Johor accused Mahathir of “playing the politics of fear and race” ahead of nationwide elections in which the former prime minister is running. But Mahathir, 92, railed on. He even compared the situation to the sultanate’s sale of the neighboring island of Temasek to the British nearly two centuries ago. That island is now the wealthy city-state Singapore.
Forest City is not a government infrastructure project, but it is a largely autonomous Chinese outpost in a strategic location. “Where else in the world has a foreign company created new land in another country, populated it with people from its home country and asserted sovereignty over it?” Moser asks. “This is a brand-new level of colonial expansion.”
And yet the greatest blow to Forest City last year was struck by the Chinese government .. fears the exodus of its citizens’ new wealth. Over the last decade, China has seen an estimated $3.8 trillion in capital leave the country, much of it going into offshore real estate. In an effort to crack down on rampant capital flight, Beijing tightened its capital controls, making it nearly impossible for investors to send large amounts of money out of the country. The limit on foreign transfers remains $50,000 a year per person, but now senders must sign a pledge that no money will be used to buy property — and face investigation if they violate the pledge. The tougher controls have strengthened China’s currency and stabilized its foreign reserves, but many Chinese investors, including Forest City customers, were left stranded: They had made down payments on their tropical idylls, but banks wouldn’t let them send the rest.
Soon after the restrictions were put in place, Country Garden shuttered its Forest City sales offices in China — “for renovation,” a notice said — and scrambled to find new customers in Dubai, Japan, Thailand and beyond. Forest City hasn’t revealed its 2017 sales figures, so it’s hard to tell just how much its business has suffered.
On a recent Saturday, a few hundred visitors — almost all of them Mandarin speakers — circulated through the sales gallery. No transactions seemed to be taking place.
“Where else in the world has a foreign company created new land in another country, populated it with people from its home country and asserted sovereignty over it?” Moser asks. “This is a brand-new level of colonial expansion.”
Tun Dr Mahathir railed on. He even compared the situation to the sultanate’s sale of the neighboring island of Temasek to the British nearly two centuries ago.” – Singapore. Those responsible never learnt.
The UMNO/BN government which allowed that must be toppled at Pru14.
Women or Men alike should not talk about their stand against adultery for they themselves may be one of them one day. You can be any race or any religion. Personal feelings and politics are best kept apart.
“Personal feelings and politics are best kept apart.”
You mean we all should be impersonal – and subhuman oink species like you?
Even when you mostly cut and paste other people’s “personal feelings” just because as a pig stupid and pig lazy Mugathir “BNM Massacre” McKutty, you are totally incapable of making any of your very own personal comment!
Adultery, if you know anything about Islam, is a sin.
And anyone not like a pretend “Chinese” – or it pretend “Malay” can have his or her ar se whipped for fcuking about if not married.
That kurang ajar biadap Kerala Kobra Kerala bukit soiled Kelingnex ar sewipe Mugathir “Proton Disaster” McKutty may now bless Anwar’s sodomy, sodomy is also still a sin and crime in Islam!
Still, good luck to your wild wet dreams humping the fat Hypocrite Hippo!
You, schizo-stricken old man Ang Tiunama, have always been impersonal since the day you came to this blog.
Your always being rude, abusive and vulgar, constantly lying, cheating and conning readers here (as stated in your CV) have made you unable to interact with others here. The result: you have always been whacked and shitted to kingdom come.
And you appeared to have just found out that adultery is a sin in Islam? You have not discarded your Chinese school mentality, mixing only with Chinese school “graduates”? No wonder you are so damn ignorant of so many things. Real Cina Bukit.
Now vulgar again and name-calling endlessly, are you? Discard your kurang ajar Cina Bukit coolie pendatang mentality then you’ll be acceptable to a few in here, ok?
Waaaaaah, Malaysian High Commissioner To The UK Tells The Economist off for publishing an article ‘based on falsehoods’. An ‘arrogant colonial mindset,’ he said. He’ll surely get a promotion to a higher level post, maybe as Ambassador to US and – with a ton of luck – be in the company of Donald Trump and embrace Trump’s “fake news” stance.
He wrote a letter to the editor of The Economist dated 15 March 2018 bringing to the attention of the publication “the biased reporting of its articles “Stop, thief!” and “Tilting the playing field” published on 10 March.
He said those contained “serious errors and reeked of an arrogant colonial mindset, disparaging our prime minister, government, police, judiciary, election commission, media and even our voters”. Hahaha, “our voters”. He didn’t read that they voted for the Opposition at Pru13 – 52% of the popular vote.
Of course the comments to those include one that asked: DO you believe the Ambassador or The Economist? To those in the know, that needs no answering.
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad slams PM Najib Razak for ‘destroying the country’
Dr Mahathir accuses Mr Najib of promoting corruption on a huge scale
He says the UMNO party is now supporting an authoritarian government
Mr Najib will reportedly meet Malcolm Turnbull on the sidelines of the special ASEAN Summit
Dr Mahathir is Malaysia’s longest-serving prime minister who resigned from the ruling United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) party in February 2016 after becoming increasingly critical of Mr Najib’s leadership in the wake of the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) corruption scandal.
He then formed a new political party and teamed up with his one-time sworn enemy Anwar Ibrahim in a bid to oust Mr Najib.
The 92-year-old has been chosen once again as a candidate to run for the country’s top job in the coming general election to be called by August.
“It is very much about getting rid of Najib. He’s a monster in the view of most people in Malaysia,” Dr Mahathir said.
“They think that he is just about enriching himself, having a good life and at the same time using money to buy support, or promoting corruption on a huge scale, stealing government money by the billions of dollars.
“This is not something that we want to see.”
Dr Mahathir, now leader of the Malaysian United Indigenous Party, expected this would be the “dirtiest election ever” and said the only way Mr Najib would win was by cheating.
“We are very strong, we think we can win but what I do think is that he will cheat to the maximum,” he said.
“If we lose it is due to cheating, fraud and things like that.”
Dr Mahathir said he had no choice but to form a party to oppose the Government in order “to revive the ideals of the nation”.
“Anwar and me of course have differences, but the problem facing the country is so big today that we have to relegate all our past experiences to the background and focus on trying to rescue or to rehabilitate this country from this administration, which is going to totally destroy this country,” he said.
“We feel this is far more important than our quarrels, and therefore we should team up together and face this problem and overcome it.”
Najib should respond to ‘avalanche of accusations’ by foreign media, says MP
Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin said Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak should respond to the “avalanche of accusations” from media outlets around the world before Parliament is dissolved to make way for the 14th general election.
He said he had done his research and there were 20 foreign media outlets that had reported on 1MDB recently from not only Western countries, but also Thailand, the Middle East, China, Singapore, Philippines and others.
Bloody Good Comment On Fake News Law in http://www.malaysiakini.com/columns/416020 –
The mantra that Prime Minister Najib Razak espoused before the election in 2013 was: “The days of the government knows what is best for the people are over. We will engage the rakyat whenever there is a need to.”
Five years later, these infamous words hold little value in view of the proposed fake news law which is being rushed through without all stakeholders being consulted.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Azalina Othman had meetings with representatives of social media platforms. Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi hosted a lunch with media editors and owners. What about journalists and journalists’ groups?
What was the outcome of these meetings? Some of those who attended were more interested in advertisement revenue lost to Google and Facebook or too busy ghost-writing blogs for their political masters. The people who do the actual work have been conveniently left out and are totally in the dark over the proposed legislation.
On March 8, Azalina was quoted as saying that the draft would be submitted to the cabinet in two weeks’ time. In Singapore, a 10-man parliamentary committee is holding hearings on similar laws. Anyone who wants to give his or her take on the proposed laws can do so. In Malaysia’s case, why the rush?
And to explain the sort of mess journalists are likely to get in, here’s a hypothetical scenario.
Assuming there is a politician who supports and advocates the government’s anti-gay policy and but leads a double life. That politician makes statements against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community but as weekend approaches, the person indulges in secret trysts. Naturally, that individual would be labelled a hypocrite who does not practise what one’s preaches.
The above is a concoction. I just want to use it to illustrate the kind of problem we could face with the proposed fake news law.
So if what is written above is not true, would it breach the new law that is being promulgated? Will there be any politician coming forward to complain that this is fake news?
But who was the reference made to? I may have been referring to the House of Commons where MPs have come out and declared themselves as gays or lesbians. I could also be referring to India where there “closet lesbians”, who because of adverse publicity, maintain secret liaisons.
Herein is a major problem. Would I have committed an offence under the new law? Who would say that I was referring particularly to him or her? Does he or she have to prove that he or she is not gay? Or do I have to prove he or she is one? Do I have to produce witnesses who had seen this person in intimate positions with someone of the same sex.
