"Something's rotten in the state of Denmark" ..all is not well at the top of our political hierarchy! Reprise.

Thursday, 04 February 2010

Yang Amat Berhormat Dato' Seri  Mohd. Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia and President of UMNO is theoretically the head honcho in this part of the world. Numero Uno and Capo Di Tutti Capi (Boss of all). In as far as Malaysia is concerned there is nobody above him in the executive area. Theoretically, where it matters, he outranks everybody -even Mahathir!
Aisehman, in theory lah!
But just let us back up for a minute. Does he really outrank Mahathir? Does he outrank Muhyiddin? We all know that in most Embassies it is not the Ambassador that really matters! The Ambassador attends dinners and become the doyen of the social scene – while his number two or the head of intelligence really runs the show.
So here in Malaysia, Muhyiddin is number two. Number two does not become number one until number one goes. You think so? You must come from a galaxy far far away if you believe that! The jury is still out on whether it is Muhyiddin or Mahathir that will decide when Najib goes … but it is definitely not Najib. Then they tell you that you must not forget the oft-mentioned (in hush and revered tones by UMNO stalwarts) “Warlords” within the upper echelons of UMNO’s ruling elite. These “Warlords” are in a class of their own. Agreed. A class that outranks everybody within UMNO when it comes to grabbing the spoils of Politics from the National coffers! Heh heh heh … 
Then there are the “others” … who are just about equal. But even here the doctrine of “primus inter pares” prevails. No, I am not trying to impress you with my knowledge of Latin - it is just a phrase which indicates that a person is the most senior of a group of people sharing the same rank. And what is the rank or office held? It is those people or group of people that holds “Najib by his balls”! 
First among the equals (for now!) is this Saiful guy … or should I say gay? This arsehole (figuratively and literally if you want to be unkind and I do want to be unkind!) he has got Najib by the balls. As I am fond of reminding everybody – when you have a guy by his balls … his heart and mind follows unquestionably. But seriously, Najib, may I ask what business is it of yours to find out what is in, or was, or still is, within Saiful's anus? Or to be more exact, what business is it of the Malaysian Judiciary to find out what is in Saiful's anus? Is this the best you can do to get the opposition and Anwar out of your way? Why? Is the election process so intimidating that you are prepared to subject yourself and our already tainted Judiciary and all of Malaysia to the ridicule of the world by persisting with this sodomy two case against Anwar?
What will happen if Najib gets a call from Saiful tonight:
Ni Saiful, Dato' Seri.
Ummmm … hari ni macham mana di Mahkamah?
OK, Dato' Seri. Keadaan terkawal tapi saya rasa … yadayadayada … (as Seinfeld will say!) … and you can be sure that when Saiful asks Najib to jump, Najib will ask  ‘how high’ . Word of advice to Saiful – make hay while the sun shines.
Get my drift? For now, this Saiful guy controls Najib’s future. Saiful decides whether Najib will remain as PM. If you were Najib would you not face each day with dread and trepidation wondering what will come out in the courts as the case unfolds? Already you are being subpoenaed by Anwar. Your wife too. You control the Judiciary but will you know what will come out from the defense team? The right honorable Karpal Singh will now have the opportunity of cross-examining you and your wife. Already, Karpal is salivating just at the thought that this case will put you in the dock, under oath, without PDRM or UTK around to do your bidding. Do you think you can outsmart the Lion of Jelutong in a one-on-one face-off? Ahhh words fail me but the prospects to come of this confrontation will surely make my day today – any day! Better than eating Nasi Dagang - and you all know that I never ever put anything above having my favorite Nasi Dagang from Kampong Baru! 
A close second is Razak Baginda, Bala and the two UTK ‘fall guys”. The three are on the same level. I say almost because that Razak Baginda guy is A-Ok in London. A-OK financially and without worries about being arrested – by PDRM, MACC or Jakim. The two UTK fall guys are in the “keadaan terkawal” mode. Bala is a loose cannon but he has a credibility problem with what he says though I am sure he still has a few aces up his sleeves when push comes to shove.
And then, as one of our friends have reminded me … there are the “pictures” and “sightings” that other interested Government and “persons unknown” from “parts unknown” have that would be “of interest” to us. The mind boggles at the myriads of possibilities … but like the Karpal thing, these possibilities and prospects brighten the otherwise wretched existence of the much trodden and deprived Rakyat of this nation.
What about the three frogs from Perak! Najib must have had to force himself to deal with those sleazebags but he had to! To survive in UMNO requires one to have the ability to lower oneself to the level of all those that you have to deal with – so if you have to deal with greedy, corrupt and unprincipled frogs – you become one! Of course, with practice you become better at it as time goes by. Hell, he might even begin to enjoy doing it, as it becomes part and parcel of his survival mode. 
Now, we must not forget Rosmah. She ranks quite low. Below Bala and the two UTK fall guys … or as some bright spark might insist on saying … under Bala and the two UTK fall guys! Do you think Rosmah will ever be able to rise to the occasion? Do her duty as Azizah did when she stepped forward in Anwar’s absence to do what she must for her husband? This will indeed be a sight to behold. She must already be busy dieting to show her very best side in court! It is one thing to have your airbrushed images plastered all over the NSTP  - another to stand in court for all to view you “unbrushed!”. She will never forgive you, Najib for subjecting her to all this. Methinks her bite and her bark is as good as you will ever get in this part of the world … bar possibly that of Mahathir! With Najib she has power and money! Without Najib she is nothing. It is in her interest to keep Najib  where he is. Nevertheless, Najib knows Rosmah knows too much. So he is beholden to her. I am not too sure what “beholden” means but I have been assured that it is not good to be “beholden” to anybody. Not even your wife. Especially if your wife is Rosmah!
And then of course there is  Mahathir. Did Najib owe his early but very timely (the Altantuya case was closing down on him) entry into the Prime Minister’s Office to Mahathir? Was it not Mahathir that finally drove Pak Lah into the sunset? Was it not Mahathir that persuaded Muhyiddin to “tunggu sekejap” and get behind Najib for the time being? And for all that what is the pay off? The down payment was a son in Cabinet. God knows what has come since then.
So when you think of all this, is Najib really the head Honcho? Capo Di Tutti Capi? Does he call the shots in Malaysia? Is he really the Prime Minister of Malaysia or simply a seat warmer for who is to come next! Heck! What can he really do? Well, for starters, we know that he can instruct PDRM, the Judiciary and all relevant Government Machineries to go see what is in the anus of this Saiful person. Najib’s and UMNO’s political future depends upon the outcome of this investigation. Or more to the point, UMNO is now so desperate, so bankrupt and so devoid of options for its own survival that it has to resort to the unsavory act of trying to prove what was in the arsehole of this Saiful gay for its own survival! 
After this sodomy two case, whatever the verdict, in as far as Anwar is concerned there is closure. Whatever appeal, if any, will be part of the continuing saga of DSAI. But Anwar has gone through the legal process and he has had his day in court and been judged by a judiciary however tainted. There is closure.
Najib meantime has still to submit himself to the same process for his part in the murder of Altantuya (to mention just one issue!). And so we wait! It is taking forever to try and resolve Perwaja. Eric Chia went to his grave denying the elephant in the living room. PKFZ is just starting. Then there are the Teoh Beng Hock, Kugan, Istana Mahligai of the Toyo’s, Perak … too many to list … all of these floating around and waiting to be resolved. As the Aussies like to say, these cases might go around for a walkabout to the never never … but somehow, sometime, somewhere in the near future it will all be resolved. It will all come out! Until then we will sit and watch the spectacle of Najib and UMNO and the Judiciary become the butt (forgive the pun, but I just could not help myself!) of jokes and ridicule all over the world all just because of Saiful’s arsehole that is no bigger than the minds of those UMNO “leaders” that is now running … or should I say ruining - our country. Stupidity, thy name is UMNO! 

UMNO Is The Downfall Of The Majority Malays As A Viable Race

Michael sent me this article a few days back. As I read it it became familiar and I thought that maybe....just maybe I am the one that wrote it. Throughout the article I find that it became more and more me....I could not find it on my blog because I do not know where to look amongst the 2000 postings that i have done.. I have yet to have a good reference system...anyway what made me think it is me is the ending:

You are one with me and we are two.

If I may say so (ahem) it is a good article and I thought I will repost it here together with comments from Outside the Box etc. to share with you all. If anyone can confirm that I wrote it : Good. If not I say thank you to the one who did!

UMNO Is The Downfall Of The Majority Malays As A Viable Race? By Syed Akbar Ali

By Syed Akbar Ali@

I received the following article from one of my Blog readers. Thank you bro. It says this article has been floating around the Net for some time. It also says that the writer of this article is an “enlightened Malay”. From the face of it I don’t think a Malay wrote this article.

I have read it and there are various parts of it that I agree with completely but there are also many parts of it which I don’t agree with.

UMNO Is The Downfall Of The Majority Malays As A Viable Race
Written by an enlightened Malay (a market analyst).

The Malays Are Lost And Waylaid - At The Crossroads Of A Malay Dilemma.If you happen to travel around this country and check on the statistics, especially the pasar malam, find out who runs the stalls and their businesses? Check out our beloved Chow Kit Road, and see who owns the thriving commerce? Or visit the Pudu wet market and see who is shouting for customers at 4 am (even before the cock crows).

Half the businesses now are with the foreigners, another half with other races, the Malays only have land titles left (especially reserve land of no value). All the GLC's are still in Malay hands, but not for long; otherwise all will be sold off in no time at all. As a people, the Malays are not known for perseverance and enduring commitment. They have no business acumen. Being entrepreneurial is a steep climb for them and the Malays have no stamina to stomach the strains and stresses. I speak from experience. They are easily swayed by circumstances.

More than half our local workforce are pendatangs (Indons, Myanmars, Nepals, Vietnamese, Banglas!) This country is not only bankrupt as said by Idris Jala, but also - telah dilelongkan. The poorer of the majority Malays left behind will become beggars and mat rempit, mat gian, mat ragut and mat dadah (they are all subsidized by our government funding to buy their No 1 drugs of escapism to run away from a harsh reality - Metadon). Who culled their own Malay race? Nobody but UMNO-BN itself! I rest my case.

Since 1957 UMNO has effectively carried out the population engineering of our country to ensure its own long-term survival by creating the myth of a two-pronged “Ketuanan Melayu” strategy of mind control. “Ketuanan Melayu” for the majority Malay masses who are lulled and numbed into a feeling of being superior over the non-Malays because of their demographic numbers; and “Ketuanan Melayu” for the favored UMNOputra Malay political elites through the accumulation of massive material wealth and power for themselves and their cronies. And while UMNO has failed by almost any measure you chose to gauge them – good governance, ethics or morality – without question they have succeeded too well in the social engineering exercise after the bloody race riots of May 13, 1969.

The duplicity of UMNO in proclaiming 1Malaysia - Satu Bangsa, Satu Negara -while all the while undertaking a relentless program to whittle down the numbers of the non-Malays through a very precise and focused political initiative is breathtaking in its effectiveness!

Consider this -

In 1957:
– 45% of the population were Chinese
– 12% of the population were Indians

In 2010:
– 25% of the population are Chinese
– 7% of the population are Indians

Over 600,000 Chinese and Indian Malaysians with red IC status were rejected repeatedly when applying for citizenship and possibly 60% of them had passed away due to old age.

Since 1957:
– 2 million Chinese have emigrated
– 0.5 million Indians have migrated

– 3 million Indonesians came over to Malaysia to become Malaysian citizens with Bumiputra status even if they stay less than 5 years. (Nett gain 0.5 million and an additional of 3 million manufactured Bumiputras like Muslim Indonesians). The most famous is none other than Mohd Khir Toyo who stayed for 20 years but became MB of Selangor.

In the not too distant future, I reckon Malay bumiputras may have to worry about 2nd or 3rd generation Indonesian migrants, owing to the virtues of hard work and thrift taught by their parents, or grandparents, would have surpassed the majority Malays in terms of socio-economic progress. Mohd Khir Toyo is smarter than most local-born Malays in terms of amassing his personal wealth at the shortest duration of time. Even Muhammad Muhammad Taib is no match for him. That's how smart Khir Toyo is.

Instead of teaching their people the virtues of hard work and perseverance, the UMNO warlords are proclaiming Ketuanan Melayu

Whereas the Indonesian newcomers went out to work before you become awake and they are not home yet when you call it a day and went to bed. Will the majority Malays consider them a threat when they deservedly find new wealth? The Indonesians respect the Chinese for their business acumen and diligence. Do the Malays think likewise if not indulge in unguarded jealousy and envy?

Now the non-Malays are well aware of this tinkering and engineering of our population and it would do us Malays no good to say that it was UMNO’s doing and that we had no hand in what happened at the end of the day. As a Malay I was then comfortable that UMNO was the dominant partner in the Barisan Nasional. It was indeed comforting to know that Malays controlled four of the five major banks. We were also in control of UMBC, MISC and Southern Bank – all previously owned by the Chinese. But seemingly the Chinese-owned Public Bank which is not in our control is moving ahead of the others still in economic prowess and competitive skills. What’s wrong with our control?


Between 1968 to 2000:

– 48 Chinese primary schools shut down

– 144 Indian primary schools closed

– 2637 Malay Primary Schools were built

Of the total government budget for these schools, 2.5% were for the Chinese, 1% for the Indians and a whopping 96.5% for the Malay primary schools.

The fact that 2637 Malay primary schools were built between 1968 to 2000 implied that the engineered process of retarding our majority Malays or bumiputras is getting obvious. At the end of their school lives, they have nowhere to go except to stay put in this country, as like idiots they have nowhere else to go because everywhere they are faced with a serious language problem and a communication breakdown with others. They will, like it or not, have to support the Ketuanan Melayu concept to survive for their freebies or welfare. The mentality is - No need to work and money will still come. Scions of the rich and wealthy UMNOputras will be educated overseas and return to continue to rule over their poorer local cousins.

Petronas petrol stations?

Of the 2000 station the Malays owned 99%. Yes…we the Malays were indeed in control. In control of what? We were in control of all the business licenses and permits for Taxis and Approved Permits (APs).

We were in control of Government contracts of which 95% were given to Malays.

We were in control of the rice trade through Bernas that bought over 80% of Chinese rice millers in Kedah. Even Robert Kuok aka Sugar King was forced to sell his sugar franchise to UMNO crony interests so that the Malays are deemed to be in control of the sugar market; and the other essential basic items.

We were in control of bus companies. Throughout Malaysia, MARA buses could be seen plying all the routes. Non-Malays were simply displaced by having their application for bus routes and for new buses rejected. Many local Chinese owned bus companies are already kaput in the urban centers.

Every new housing estate being built had a mosque or a surau. None, I repeat “no” temples or churches were built for any housing estate even if the majority residents are non Malays! We even blare the loudspeakers in every mosque calling for Azan at maximum volume just so to tell the non Malays and non Muslims that we are in control!

So why with control over all these highly visible entities and business opportunities are the majority Malays still unable to stand tall and with pride over and above the non-Malays? We are unable to so do because it was not the Malays that benefited from these opportunities - only the favoured UMNOputras enjoyed the benefits, and the poorer among the majority Malays were merely taken for a ride as their name were used by UMNO to hijack the national agenda. The Chinese bogeyman and the Malay hobbyhorse work wonders for UMNO to play one against the other in their evil scheme of Divide and Rule to suit their survival plan.

Why must UMNO constantly harped about the need to spoon-feed the majority Malays – about Ketuanan Melayu when it is already in place and about Bumiputra status and all the privileges and rights that goes with that special status?

And as a Malay I want to ask the non-Malays why you still chose to live in a country whose racist government has by its actions and deeds done whatever it could to make you not feel welcomed as a Pendatang? The non-Malays I know have all told me the same thing – Malaysia is their country – they know of no other country they can call their own. And so they stay and put up with the abuses and nonsense.

The difference now is that there are enough Malays who are ashamed by the nihilistic antics of this ultra racist Malay political organization call UMNO. There are enough Malays to tell the non-Malays that we feel your pain, too. We understand your frustrations and despair at not being treated as equals in a country you call your own.

You must remember that UMNO will never treat you as equals or partners in progress. They want eveything for themselves. If you are not happy you can get out. UMNO does not give a damn if you're a rocket scientist or Albert Einstein Reborn. If you are non Malay you are 2nd class pendatang. Remember that well.

And enough non-Malays had migrated abroad to cause our country to understand that their loss is another country’s gain. Singapore gained the most. A loss, which our country can ill afford to sustain in the long run. Only dumb and stupid Malay leaders deny the causes.

And more important, all these groundswell of disgust and contempt at UMNO has manifested itself in a way these political idiots cannot understand – losing our votes in the 12th General Elections on 10 March 2008. Say Amen for that. Instead of seeking penance these racist bastards scream for bloodshed and mayhem still.

And so we wait for the 13th General Election in 2011 which we hope will dish out the relevant karma for UMNO and its lameduck Barisan Nasional partners. The stooges and the parasites.

Meantime understand what they have done to us all – not only the non-Malays but also to the Malays and do not allow UMNO or Barisan Nasional to play the race card and start their divide and rule antics on us anymore.

You are one with me and we are two.

United we stand divided we fall.

One for all and all for one - is our game plan

Outside the Box comment: 
Here are my comments. Of course the ruling party for the past 54 years has to bear the burden of the blame for ALL our shortcomings. I say ALL, because after 54 years UMNO and the BN just simply cannot say that it is not their fault.

But the fault lies not entirely on UMNO because the article here says it is the Malays who have failed to achieve their spot in the country. Don’t the Malays themselves deserve the blame for this too? Why just blame UMNO?

The article is titled "UMNO Is The Downfall Of The Majority Malays . . " OK. So what about the minority “non-UMNO” Malays? Have they prospered better than the majority ‘UMNO” Malays? The PAS has been ruling Kelantan for 20 years now. Have they prospered? Nope. They are worse off.
