Antara chauvinis, komunis dan pengkhianat

Sudah wujud kerjasama politik yang matang serta boleh diterima pakai masyarakat majmuk Malaysia sejak awal tahun 1950-an lagi. 

Kerjasama di-antara wakil kaum utama dinegara ketika itu adalah langkah persatuan awal politik kaum-kaum berlainan, terutamanya orang Melayu dan orang keturunan Cina. 

Umno yang mewakili orang Melayu pada ketika itu berkerjasama dengan MCA yang mewakili orang Cina kerana masing-masing menguasai sokongan orang Melayu dan orang Cina dalam keadaan hampir 'mutlak'.

MCA ketika itu berdiri sebagai ketua kepada sebuah gabungan besar badan-badan bukan kerajaan (NGO) serta persatuan-persatuan kaum, suku serta perniagaan yang mewakili kaum Cina diseluruh negara.

Umno berkerjasama dengan  MCA sebelum dan selepas Merdeka pada tahun 1957 kerana Malaysian Chinese ASSOCIATION pada ketika itu adalah wakil kaum Cina di Malaya dan kemudiannya Malaysia. 

Sehingga tahun 2014 sokongan untuk MCA kekal kukuh walaupun goyah ketika DAP melonjak seketika bersama segolongan besar masyarakat Cina. 

Status MCA pada hari ini jauh berbeza. Mungkin tidak sampai 20% masyarakat Cina yang masih bersama dengan parti politik itu. (Saya sedia diperbetulkan dalam jangkaan ini)

Sokongan masyarakat Cina telah beralih kepada Democratic Action Party (DAP). Mungkin ada pelbagai alasan serta andaian tetapi yang nyata masyarakat Cina melantik DAP sebagai wakil politik mereka. 

Baru-baru ini seorang menteri kanan kerajaan Barisan Nasional dari Umno menemplak dan memperkecilkan MCA kerana telah hilang sokongan masyarakat Cina. 

Menteri itu berkata beliau akrab dengan pemimpin DAP kerana sokongan orang Cina untuk DAP adalah jauh lebih besar dari sokongan mereka untuk MCA.  

Itu pertengkaran terbuka di-antara dua parti BN yang yakin bahawa rakyat masih menyokong mereka. Keadaan sebenar umpama 'jauh panggang dari api'.

Keputusan pilihanraya-piliharaya yang diadakan SPR sejak 2008 adalah rujukan muktamad angka dan peratusan. 

Jadi, kenapa kerjasama antara kaum yang dijalin dari zaman negara belum merdeka lagi harus diketepi demi kepentingan sempit sebilangan yang tamak kuasa? Mana mungkin kepentingan yang khianat dan tamak mengatasi kepentingan rakyat dan negara? 

DAP adalah parti politik yang mewakili majoriti rakyat Malaysia kaum Cina pada ketika ini. Kaum lain yang ingin berkerjasama dengan kaum Cina demi kelangsungan politik perpaduan tidak boleh menafikan status DAP dalam politik Malaysia pada waktu ini.  

Kerisauan 'orang Melayu grassroots' tidak boleh menerima kerjasama politik dengan DAP adalah pendapat sebilangan kecil yang ingin terus mempengaruhi minda orang Melayu terutamanya mereka yang alpa akan situasi sediada dalam negara. 

Pemimpin seharusnya menerangkan realiti politik kita ketika ini dan mengajak masyarakat, terutamanya orang Melayu, keluar dari kepompong lama. Rakyat dahagakan satu kerjasama baru antara masyarakat majmuk kita. Rakyat mencari pemimpin.

Pemimpin tidak wajar mengambil pendekatan populis ketika negara memerlukan kepimpinan untuk menyelamatkan kita dari perigi buta. 

Agak mustahil orang Melayu tidak boleh berkerjasama dengan wakil sah orang Cina pada waktu ini jika 60 tahun lepas mereka sanggup berkerjasama dengan wakil sah orang Cina ketika itu. Apa bezanya niat dan matlamat, dulu dan kini?  

Sekian lama penyokong kerajaan Barisan Nasional, termasuk saya sendiri, tidak bersetuju dengan DAP kerana pemimpin parti itu bersikap chauvinis. Ini tidak dapat dinafikan tetapi sikap chauvinis dan perkauman melampau ini bukan lagi hak mutlak segelintir pemimpin DAP. 

Sekarang ini kenyataan-kenyataan yang jauh melampaui batas dan menyakitkan hati masyarakat kerap dilontar golongan lain yang dahulu menuding DAP. 

Agak pelik jika orang Melayu 'tidak boleh menerima' DAP yang mewakili kaum Cina di-Semenanjung Malaysia apabila mereka boleh menerima Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) dari Sarawak. 

SUPP ditubuhkan pada tahun 1959. SUPP menyertai Perikatan pada tahun 1970 dan kekal setia bersama Barisan Nasional sehingga kini. 

The Sarawak United Peoples' Party, or SUPP (Chinese砂拉越人民联合党MalayParti Rakyat Bersatu SarawakIban: Gerempong Sa'ati Ra'ayat Sarawak) is a political party in Malaysia. The party is one of the constituent members of the ruling Barisan Nasional. It was established in 1959 mainly by leftists and working class Chinese, many of whom were members of the underground communist movement in Sarawak. - WIKIPEDIA

I interviewed Bong Kee Chok in Kuching many years ago for a short feature. He was then a loyal member of SUPP. The party had even nominated him for a state award which was cancelled at the eleventh hour. Guess Bong Kee Chok is still a member of Barisan Nasional via SUPP.     

This reference to SUPP is not in any way meant to insult or ridicule the party and or its members but is merely a lesson to those who think politics is cast in stone. It is also for those who forget easily. 

There is also ample proof that we, as a nation, have managed to tame communism. 

I believe chauvinism too could be managed, but not treason.

PERINGATAN - Melindungi pengkhianat adalah jenayah





Sidang akhbar bersejarah ini diadakan pada 25hb Januari 2016, lebih kurang tujuh bulan yang lalu, di  pejabat Peguam Negara Malaysia Putrajaya. 

Kandungan sidang akhbar ini diketahui seluruh dunia tetapi sehingga kini ramai yang masih mempertikaikan keputusan Apandi Ali yang dikatakan bertindak lebih sebagai peguambela orang yang disyaki (Najib Razak) daripada tugas hakikinya sebagai peguam negara. 

Dengan bukti-bukti baru yang dikemukakan Kerajaan Amerika Syarikat mungkin Apandi akan membaca kembali kenyataan beliau tempohari kerana isunya bukan sekadar kredibiliti Apandi sebagai peguam negara tetapi juga berkisar dengan kelakuan jenayah melindungi penjenayah.

Kelihatan disebelah kiri Apandi Ali (dalam rakaman video diatas) adalah Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad (yang memeriksa teks kenyataan yang dibacakan peguam negara dengan teliti). Ketika sidang akhbar ini diadakan pada bulan Januari yang lalu Dzulkifli bertugas dibawah Apandi di Jabatan Peguam Negara. 

Kini Dzulkifli adalah Ketua Pesuruhjaya Suruhanjaya Percegahan Rasuah Malaysia. Perlantikan Dzulkifli memang telah dijangka sejurus selepas sidang akhbar di-atas. 

Jangan terkejut dengan amaran terbaru Dzulkifli, khususnya yang ditujukan kepada penjawat awam, kerana itu adalah tugas terbaru beliau. Saya pasti Dzulkifli sedar bahawa ramai yang sedang memerhatikan beliau secara dekat, dari dalam dan luar SPRM. 

Untuk makluman, Najib Razak adalah penjawat awam.    


p/s 

Bersubahat melindungi jenayah juga adalah jenayah, lebih-lebih lagi jika yang bersubahat itu adalah mereka yang diamanahkan untuk menegakkan undang-undang yang termaktub dibawah Perlembagaan Malaysia. Pastinya hukuman bagi jenayah melindungi kesalahan jenayah akan lebih berat jika yang cuba dilindungi itu adalah pengkhianat negara.

TMJ : What is your message to the PM ?


Tengku Mahkota Johor - Bearer of the Rakyat's message
Well, the much revered Tengku Mahkota of Johor Tengku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim has made it public that he would be meeting Prime Minister Najib Razak, the infamous Malaysian Official 1, for tea on August 12, 2016. 

The TMJ revealed this during his casual chat with Harith Iskander on the Obviously Harith Iskander live show over Asto Awani last night.

If you listen carefully the TMJ also said "If you all have any message (that) you want me to pass to him... you can see me after the show".  

The time code of this gem of a message is from 34:30 to 35:10. Go listen again. Do listen to the whole episode too, its really worth your time.
Ampun Tuanku. I'm aware that your Highness' offer to be Royal messenger could be a limited one that applies only to those who were present in the studio but would Tuanku please consider making it available to all Malaysians ?  

Ampun Tuanku. Judging from the current state of affairs in our beloved  country I'm very sure there are millions of other Malaysians who are very keen to send their heartfelt wishes and messages to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. 

Ampun Tuanku. Malaysians are generally excited simply because, if our wish is granted, the bearer of the Rakyat's Message will be none other than Brigadier General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim. 

Ampun Tuanku beribu-ribu ampun, sembah patik mohon diampun.

1MDB scandal - Challenge the US Attorney General if you are innocent

The consequences of Justo’s leaks are still reverberating around the world. When the US Department of Justice laid out the case against 1MDB last week, it pulled no punches. “The Malaysian people were defrauded on an enormous scale,” said Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s deputy director. US officials told the Guardian that any party who wanted to contest the attorney general’s claim must file a response in a federal court within 60 days to answer the factual allegations. The Guardian 
Loretta Lynch the brave AG
Well the US officials' statement in The Guardian sounds very fair, clear and could easily be understood by a 10 year old kid. Those who are not happy with US attorney general Loretta Lynch could challenge her in a court of law. 

Claims of kleptocracy, money laundering, fraud and implied treason following the US Department of Justice / FBI's joint investigations on 1MDB-linked crimes could be contested in a court of law. 

To begin with Prime Minister Najib Razak, who is the thinly-veiled Malaysian Official 1, should instruct his lawyers to file a response in a federal court (I suppose in the US) within 60 days. 

You can file it on Monday without having to wait for another Tuesday, if you have anything factual to prove that Lynch is wrong.  

I'm sure Najib could seek help from the local Legal Aid Bureau or the Malaysian Bar Council if he feels that his lawyers are not competent enough to stand straight when facing Lynch the US Attorney General.

Malaysian Official 1, if you don't file a response just zip it. We have had enough of your shadow play and outright lies. 

Just to recap below are recordings of Lynch and her fellow investigators press conference during which the 1MDB-linked kleptocracy was unveiled, as the biggest in US history. Listen carefully to the choice of words used to explain the crimes against Malaysia and Malaysians.

Actually Rosmah Mansor's son Riza Aziz and his buddy Jho Low who were named in the DoJ civil suit together with another Arab conman could start filing their response at a federal court in the US if they still happen to be partying in the US. I'm not sure if you could file a response in a US court while drowning your sorrows in a fortified bungalow in KL. No harm trying though.
Riza the stepson

Just remember that Loretta is not Apandi Ali and Apandi Ali is not Loretta. Btw, how many Tuesdays are there in 60 days from the 20th of July?

Remember Xavier Andre JUSTO ?

Many will have to pay for this heinous crime. Not only Najib, Jho Low, Riza and the bunch of thieves and traitors but the others who knowingly became accessory to this despicable crime. The list would certainly include all those who wanted us Malaysians to believe that Justo was the bad guy who wanted to 'topple democratically elected Government' The Malaysian media, particularly those who packed lies as exclusive reports will also have to pay a very heavy price. 

Imagine what would have happened to us Malaysians if both Justo and Claire Newcastle Brown are as intelligent as the entire Malaysian Cabinet ? 

The Malaysian Cabinet is made up of politicians from 13 political parties representing a cross section of the society and ALL of them fully support Najib Razak, the infamous #MalaysianOfficial1

The ruling coalition Barisan Nasional is made up of 13 different parties and NOT a single entity made up of Umno, Umno and Umno. 

p/s Malaysia owes both Claire and Justo, no doubts about that.


1MDB: The inside story of the world’s biggest financial scandal


On 22 June 2015, Xavier Justo, a 48-year-old retired Swiss banker, walked towards the front door of his brand new boutique hotel on Koh Samui, a tropical Thai island. He had spent the past three years building the luxurious white-stone complex of chalets and apartments overlooking the shimmering sea and was almost ready to open for business. All he needed was a licence.
Justo had arrived in Thailand four years earlier, having fled the drab world of finance in London. In 2011, he and his girlfriend Laura toured the country on a motorbike and, two years later, they got married on a secluded beach. The couple eventually settled down in Koh Samui, a tourist hotspot, just an hour’s flight south of Bangkok. After trying out a couple of entrepreneurial ventures, Justo eventually decided that he would go into the hotel business. He bought a plot with an imposing house and began building: adding a gym, villas and a tennis court.


That June afternoon, he was expecting a visit from the tourism authorities to sign off on the paperwork. Instead, a squad of armed Thai police burst through the unlocked door, bundling Justo to the groundThe officers tied their plastic cuffs so tightly around Justo’s wrists that he bled on the dark tiled floor. The police quickly moved into his office, ripping out the computers and emptying the filing cabinets.
After two days in a ramshackle local jail, Justo was flown to Bangkok and paraded before the media, in a press conference befitting a mafia kingpin. Still wearing shorts and flip-flops, he was flanked by four commandos holding machine guns, while a quartet of senior Royal Thai Police officers briefed the assembled reporters on the charges against him.
Justo was charged with an attempt to blackmail his former employer, a little-known London-based oil-services company named PetroSaudi. But behind this seemingly mundane charge lay a much bigger story.

Six months earlier, Justo had handed a British journalist named Clare Rewcastle Brown thousands of documents, including 227,000 emails, from the servers of his former employer, PetroSaudi, which appeared to shed light on the alleged theft of hundreds of millions of dollars from a state-owned Malaysian investment fund known as 1MDB.
The documents that Justo leaked have set off a chain reaction of investigations in at least half a dozen countries, and led to what Loretta Lynch, the US attorney general, described last week as “the largest kleptocracy case” in US history. -

It beats common sense why members of the Malaysian Cabinet are still throwing their little left weight behind a known thief.  
Please also read The Guardian's editorial that fits perfectly into Najib Razak's GLOKAL.

The old man who can't even throw stones to break a glass is super star again. He didn't have to break a single glass to send thieves living in the glass house running helter skelter, like the Malay saying "lari tak cukup tanah".
