A Royal Snub: Mahathir Courts the Agong’s Displeasure

The previous Agong invited Mahathir to the Coronation but the current Agong un-invited him. And no one would have known had Mahathir’s daughter not caused the ‘un-invitation’ letter to go viral on the internet. Effectively, the Agong has struck Mahathir off the protocol list and has declared him a pariah who is not fit to hold his Tun title. The decent thing for Mahathir to do now is to surrender back his Tun title to show he still has some principles, pride and dignity and is not shameless.

The Sultan of Kelantan, DYMM Sultan Muhammad V, was chosen as the 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong at the 243rd Conference of Rulers held at Istana Negara here on Friday. In a official statement, the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal, Datuk Seri Syed Danial Syed Ahmad, said the appointment would take effect on 13 December 2016, for a period of five years.

Since then there has been a very interesting development to what would have normally been quite a boring event. And that interesting development is that an ex-Prime Minister with a knighthood (a Tun is equivalent to a Sir) was invited and then uninvited to the Coronation of His Majesty the Agong next week.

This is actually not the first time Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad suffered a royal snub. Earlier, Mahathir was not invited to DYMM the Sultan of Johor’s Coronation and to the wedding reception of Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim.

The fact that the Sultan of Johor snubbed Mahathir is apparent when Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, also an ex-Prime Minister with a knighthood, was invited (and was seated at the main table with the Agong the other Sultans, including the Sultan of Brunei, and the Johor princes and princess) while Mahathir was not.

The message that the Sultan of Johor was sending Mahathir and the whole of Malaysia could not have been clearer. But in this latest episode Mahathir was not just not invited, like in Johor’s case. Mahathir was actually invited by the previous Agong (Kedah) and then uninvited by the current Agong (Kelantan). And Malaysians would not have known about this if Mahathir’s daughter, Marina, had not viraled the ‘un-invitation letter’ on the internet. So the leak was actually an inside job, probably meant to garner sympathy and support from Malaysians.

In fact, not many people were aware of this un-invitation if Marina had not publicised it. And the fact that Mahathir was originally invited to the Coronation (by the previous Agong) and then uninvited (by the current Agong) not only makes this the first time in history for something like this to happen but also is as good as declaring Mahathir a pariah who is not fit for a knighthood or Tun-ship.

A public plea to have Maria and Mahathir declared Enemies of the State and arrested

mahathir-bersih-1Source: Malaysia Today

The Third Force

This article is a public plea and constitutes a spinoff to an article featured by Malaysia Today last Monday, the 5th of December 2016. The article, The world’s biggest media conspiracy by George Soros, Clare Rewcastle and Dr. Mahathir to destroy Najib, 1MDB and Kadem Al Qubaisi, constitutes the fifth part to what may turn out to be a 20-part series, exploring a global conspiracy by world renowned financial elites to impose a remote form of jurisdiction upon Southeast Asian economies.

Maria Chin Abdullah a.k.a. Mary Chin Cheen Lian, a 60 year old Malaysian national currently heading Bersih, a coalition of Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), is without a doubt a threat to national security. Her collusions with an international syndicate (hereinafter referred to as the syndicate) of global financiers to commit lèse-majesté against the administration of Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak has effectively turned her into an enemy of the state.

The Federal Constitution stipulates that the executive power of government is vested in the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, exercised by him on the advice of a federal Council of Ministers. By virtue of this reasoning, an attempt to commit democratic thievery against the head of executive, appointed by the constitutional monarch himself, is tantamount to waging war against His Majesty, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, which in Malaysian jurisprudence is an act punishable by death.

Maria, along with a team of saboteurs led by former Malaysian premier Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad, conspired with the syndicate not only to commit democratic thievery against government, but to sabotage the economy and the ringgit by sparking chaos in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur. I hereby declare and commit to the idea that Bersih, a coalition purportedly on a mission to reform the Malaysian electoral system, was in fact the artifice through which Maria and Mahathir planned and executed the scheme.

By liaising with the syndicate, Maria had knowingly or unknowingly associated herself with a nexus of syndicated criminals tied to world renowned billionaire George Soros, whose associations with drug cartels and terrorist groups are considered in the aforementioned article. Continue reading

DAP man quits party, lost faith in Kit Siang and slams Mahathir partnership


Source: Malaysia Outlook

DAP Chai Leng Park branch publicity secretary Shamsher Singh Thind has quit the party with immediate effect.

Shamser said in a press statement today that he had lost faith in the party leadership, especially with Lim Kit Siang.

He has tendered a month’s notice in writing to the DAP secretary general in accordance with Clause VI of the party constitution which was handed to the office on Nov 11.

“Kit Siang and other prominent opposition leaders have made criticism remarks against Mahathir and Muhyiddin in the past but now it has all changed.

“From what I see, either Kit Siang lied about Mahathir and Muhyiddin, or he has no problem working hand-in-hand with those who abused their powers and who were corrupt in the past.

“Whichever view is adopted, the point that I want to prove is that Kit Siang has lost his credibility.

“Although I admit that the country is not doing well at the moment, I refused to accept the fact that Najib Razak is the greater evil, compared to Mahathir and Muhyiddin Yassin.

“Even if Najib is so far the worst Prime Minister of Malaysia, what can Pakatan Harapan do with its former ally, PAS, and the newly formed Malay-based party?” Shamsher asked.

He highlighted that according to Clause 5 of the Pakatan Harapan Agreement, the presidential council is given the power to make a final decision to decide whose candidate will contest in any particular constituency during an election, in the event the parties are unable to reach an agreement.

However, the presidential council failed to make the final decision and as direct result, both PKR and DAP contested against each other in six state seats during the Sarawak Election 2016. Continue reading

Mahathir’s Motivation

mahathir-bersihSource: LSS Report

The image of Mahathir in a BERSIH 5 shirt while doing a video advertistment to promote the event was a real eye-opener for many people – some people applauded him while many others were turned off.

We may never know if his presence was the reason why BERSIH 5 attendance was down by as much as 80% as estimated by BERSIH themselves or down 60% as estimated by MalaysiaKini but that is not the focus of today’s article.

Much has been said about Mahathir’s recent U-turns, many of which have puzzled friends and foes alike. He has made so many that we can only speculate what else more in future where he would make similar U-Turns in support of DAP’s stand.

There are already a lot of these U-turns – some of which are shocking, including his his call in the foreign media for foreign intervention in Malaysia.

So, what had motivated the former Prime Minister to make such shocking U-turns which is so out-of-character based on his past track records that to many, it has made him look like the ultimate shamless hypocrite?

Unless Mahathir spills the beans himself, we can only speculate.

But it is easier to say what is not the reason than to say with certainty what is the real reason. Let’s list them all down.

It is not because of 1MDB or RM2.6 billion or any alleged corruption.

Why do I say this? Well, Mahathir had actually publicly announced in August 2014 that he had pulled back support from Najib. Remember this date, August 2014. This event had sent shock-waves in the local media at that time.

This is way before there were any allegations on 1MDB or any hint of RM2.6 billion in PM’s account. Continue reading

Forgiving Mahathir is not the same as trusting him


Source: Malaysia Impact

Do you remember 1998? People are in the streets peacefully chanting “Reformasi” and carrying banners with the words, “Mahathir Undur!” Soon, they are chased by riot police, who kick them and beat them with batons. The brutal, vivid scenes are captured by AP reporters. Many demonstrators are arrested. Yet the prime minister who oversaw that crackdown is now celebrated at protests. He himself now views protests as necessary.

Do you remember the Bank Negara forex scandal? Or the Perwaja Steel scandal? Or the Bumiputra Malaysia Finance scandal? (Google all of them.) Do you remember the frequent bailouts of failing companies, including MAS, at a steep loss for taxpayers? Yet the prime minister during all those events now says he’s concerned about corruption, malfeasance, and incompetence in the government.

Does anyone believe that Mahathir is a changed man?

Do you remember when he attacked Tunku Abdul Rahman for being too nice to the Chinese? Do you remember when he was the patron of Perkasa, an organization notorious for its racial rhetoric? Do you remember when he criticized Najib’s effort to remove the 30 percent bumiputera equity quota for many companies? That quota-lifting was a welcome and progressive pivot away from race-based policies. Yet Mahathir now has the gall to call Najib “very racist.”

Do you remember all the politically motivated arrests that happened under Mahathir’s rule? Do you remember when he opposed repealing the Sedition Act when Najib proposed the move? Do you remember when Mahathir blamed a rise in crime on the abolition of the Internal Security Act (ISA) and the Banishment Act? Yet he now complains about Malaysia as a “police state“, apparently alarmed at the lack of freedom and democracy.

Do you remember when Mahathir pushed for Tunku to be removed from power? Do you remember when he did the same to his own successor Abdullah Badawi because the latter refused to do his bidding? Yet Mahathir is now portrayed by many as a selfless statesman who wants to ‘save Malaysia’ from Najib. Give me a break. Don’t you see the pattern here?

This isn’t about setting scores, or seeking justice for past sins. Too many are fixated over whether Mahathir should be forgiven, since he has now joined their crusade against Najib. But that’s entirely beside the point – forgiveness is a red herring dreamt up by those desperate to soothe very legitimate doubts about our former dictator. Continue reading
