Rumours of a Selangor 'coup' unleashes pre-emptive moves

Rumours about a BN-Umno engineered Selangor coup are making the rounds among political circle and Pakatan leaders are not taking it sitting down.

This is certainly a well-planned coup attempt by BN-Umno same as the one they did it on Perak on last February. Well, we hope that the Selangor Pakatan leadership will plan its strike back before it is too late.

Learn from the experience that Perak Pakatan had undergone. The BN-Umno had the MACC and various security apparatus to support their coup attempt. The Selangor Pakatan need to sit down together to come up with their next course of action rather than to deal with petty political squabbles amongst PKR, DAP and PAS.

Remember, the Umno president Najib Razak had pledged to retake Selangor at any cost and if he is serious about this, he will do it at any cost, by riots, by force or any ways he wants, even the armed forces tanks might be send in to topple the state government.

Therefore, we hope the Selangor Pakatan will start doing their homework before it is too late. Be extra careful and maintain your alert at any possibilities. These Umno people are really uncivilised and they could resort to anything if they want.

BN versus BN

With both MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Sarawak People’s Democratic Party (SPDP) treasurer-general Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing who is also the BN Backbenchers Club president openly at loggerheads now over the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) irregularities, it is Barisan Nasional versus BN now.

The MCA president who is also transport minister lodged a police report recently against Tiong over the latter’s allegation that he had given RM10 million to Tee Keat to support MCA’s divisional spending.

According to Tiong he had donated RM10 million to the MCA president last year after he was requested to do so by Tee Keat. The money was also alleged to have been paid in cash in three stages during a meeting between the two men at Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur respectively.
Both Tiong and Tee Keat are now exposing one another about their previous ties, relationship, friendship and their deals as well.

When Tee Keat pledged to tell all about the PKFZ scandal which caused the massive losses in billions of Ringgit, the core player of the project Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) of which Tiong is also the chief executive officer was frequently mentioned as part of the scandal.

Tiong who is the CEO of KDSB is definitely very hot up against Tee Keat by now for making KDSB a scapegoat to this scandal. Due to this, Tiong decided to expose and tell all about his deals with MCA previously which may in turn affect the credibility of Tee Keat as both MCA president and transport minister.

Apart from the RM10 million claim that help to strengthen MCA, Tiong’s deputy CEO in KDSB had also claimed that Tee Keat had also used his personal air transport several times to travel to certain locations.

In this case, will the MACC be interested in having this case probed and bring those who are responsible to justice? Maybe MACC is only interested in cases that involve only a few hundred Ringgit and cases that are fabricated against opposition party leaders and members.

Even though the PKFZ scandal cost the BN federal government about RM12 billion in losses, it is merely a BN case and the MACC would not take its initiative to intensify its investigation on those wrongdoers and prefer to investigate non-existence cases involving opposition parties.

In this event, the MACC cannot even demonstrate its effectiveness and professionalism as claimed by MACC officials all this while. It only serves the purpose and interest of their political master, Umno.

And since this scandal involves corruptions practically, why didn’t the Port Klang Authority (PKA) lodge their report with MACC against KDSB but instead did its report at the police commercial crime investigation department?

Well, even the PKA did not trust the MACC now as they knew that organization is merely an Umno’s political tool. That is why PKA preferred the police commercial crimes investigation department to investigate the case.

In conclusion, both Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing should resign from their positions respectively as these two men’s reputation has been tarnished politically and ethically by their own doings.

But we could see these two men are not brave enough to face the facts. Can they face the people and the voters then?

Umno youth leaders to undergo military training

According to the MalaysianInsider report on 9 Aug recently, Umno will be making arrangements to send all its youth leaders including its youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin to undergo military training. The training module would be a commando-type.

Umno vice president and defense minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is the core person taking charge of this program in his capacity in the defense ministry.

Well, what was the political motive of providing military training to all these Umno youth leaders? According to some source, the aim of this training is to establish a party militia force in order to provide security and political intelligence to the top party leadership. Apart from that, the said militia force would also be tasked to protect the party’s interest.

This remind us on how Chancellor Adolf Hitler build his Nazi Party’s militia and security unit into a large military force called Sturmabteilung (SA) and the Waffen-SS (SS) which nearly posed a threat to the German regular army, called the Wehrmacht.

The SA forces took up the role of auxiliary police force in Germany while the SS became a party military force consist of group, divisions, regiments, battalions and company levels which was equivalent to the regular army.

During Hitler’s reign over Germany and all over Europe, the SA and SS were widely used to organize ethnic cleansing, wiping out local resistance and create fear amongst the people over its rule and the Nazi empire.

Besides, the SA and SS were also used in Germany itself to curb local opposition against the regime and to put down the German resistance who aimed to assassinate Hitler and topple the Nazi administration.

So, with Umno youth leaders undergoing military and commando trainings, what is the current direction of the party now? To remain in power forever by force! We had seen the experience in Europe during Hitler’s era.

Dartuk Rais internet filter plan

We wish to express our grave disappointment over the BN federal government’s plan to filter control the flow of blogging and internet news portals. These actions are greatly undemocratic and dictatorial in human rights aspect.

What the information, cultural and heritage minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim planned to do for the BN clearly shows that the BN-Umno coalition had totally conceived defeat. They wanted their mainstream media to continue monopolize the information flow to the public. They wanted all information to the public to be censored to ensure BN and Umno continue to stay in power for as long as they want.

Besides, the BN also intend to filter the internet in order to severe the communications between the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) and the people as a whole. The problem they should think is, are they able to do that?

The BN-Umno coalition government did not want the truth to be channeled to the people. They knew that it was because of our bloggers who spread to the public the truth about BN and Umno’s wrongdoings, corruptions and power abuse, they lost badly in the last general elections.

We also welcome a BN component party member, Gerakan who openly protest plans to censor the internet and hope they will not go backward just because of Umno’s pressure. Gerakan had earlier stated its intention to join the Anti ISA rally on 1 August but pulled out in the last minute due to pressure from their BN dominant party Umno who voiced their dissatisfaction over Gerakan’s non-BN move.

Look, even in the BN fold there are no practical democracy at all. All BN component parties do not even have they rights to express their opinions or voice their criticisms over certain issues of public importance. They are required to respect and support whatever decisions made and determined by the dominant force of the coalition, Umno without any questions or say in opinions.

MIC politicising Buah Pala to cover up Maika

The MIC and its party president Samy Vellu had failed to protect the interest of our fellow Malaysian Indians for decades.

It has been almost 30 years now ever since our Malaysian Indian friends had invested heavily in Maika Holdings Berhad with high hopes that their profits and investments will reap one day. Unfortunately, what have they got today? Nothing at all! The Maika’s businesses and ventures has been a total failure all these years which cost all the shareholders and investors funds and monies.

Where did the monies of all these poor investors gone to? What has Samy Vellu done about this to settle their grievances after all these years, when he was a powerful minister in the federal government? Well, he did nothing the Malaysian Indians but only cares for his wealth and his pocket.

Samy Vellu boastfully said that the Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng can settle the Kampung Buah Pala issue with only a stroke of his signature in his capacity but as MIC president he cannot even settle the Maika scandal after all these years.

This shows that Samy had admitted his guilt and his inability as well, but he still insist and wanted to stay on to power as MIC president eventhough he had lost his Sungai Siput parliamentary seat and his ministerial position after the previous general elections.

Now, when the Kampung Buah Pala issue turned sour, MIC politicized it and tried to become a superhero rushing over there to defend the affected residents, but they never being able to do anything at all.

The real question is, where were all those MIC leaders, and what have they done to prevent this from happening when the previous Penang Gerakan-led Barisan state government approved and sold the land to the developer. Why are these MIC leaders keeping so quiet and cowardly run away just like that?

Therefore, no matter what the MIC has been doing right now, the party had become irrelevant and cannot be reformed anymore.
