Perbandingan harga rumah untuk kes @cmlimguaneng #jalanpinpon

RUMAH DI PERMATANG PAUH DAN SEBERANG PERAI SEKALI GANDA LEBIH MAHAL DARI RUMAH GUAN ENG.

P.Pinang terbahagi kepada dua bahagian. Sebelah pulau dan sebelah seberang. Sesiapa pun akan tahu, sebelah pulau adalah kawasan yang ada klas. Manakala sebelah seberang pula kawasan yang kelas kedua. Rumah2 dan tanah2 di sebelah pulau harganya melambung2 tinggi jika nak dibandingkan dengan seberang. Tapi logikkah rumah LGE yang terletak di kawasan yang ada klas di sebelah pulau harganya sekali ganda lebih MURAH dari rumah di seberang ? Lihat gambar2 dan angka di bawah sbg bukti.

Sumber : mudah.my

Gambar 1 : Sebuah rumah di PERMATANG PAUH yg berkeluasan 1540kp ditawarkan untuk jualan pada harga RM 880'000.00. Bersamaan RM 571.43 untuk sekaki persegi.

Gambar 2: Sebuah rumah di SEBERANG PERAI yg berkeluasan 2240kp ditawarkan untuk jualan pada harga RM 1'200'000.00. Bersamaan RM 535.71 untuk sekaki persegi.

Gambar 3 :  Sebuah rumah di GEORGETOWN yg berkeluasan 9411kp ditawarkan untuk jualan pada harga RM 5'880'000.00. Bersamaan RM 624.80 untuk sekaki persegi.

Gambar 4 : Rumah Lim Guan Eng di kawasan berkelas tinggi di GEORGETOWN yang berkeluasan 10'161kp, dibeli beliau pada harga RM 2'800'000.00. Bersamaan RM 275.56 sekaki persegi.

Orang kampung, orang Kelantan pun boleh fikir harganya tak logik. Tapi Lim Guan Eng seorang KM di Pulau Pinang dan orang yang menjaga hal ehwal tanah di negeri itu boleh jawab "saya tak tahu harga kerana saya bukan ejen hartanah". Apa lagi mahu kelentong Mr Tokong ?

Bila Mahathir Nak Pulangkan 100 Billion Aset Umno – RPK

(FB) KUALA LUMRUR – Bekas presiden UMNO, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad dicabar supaya menjelaskan mengenai aset RM100-RM200 bilion milik UMNO dan sudahkan aset ia dipulangkan kepada parti itu.

Blogger politik, Raja Petra Kamarudin menuduh Mahathir menukar parti Melayu itu daripada sebuah parti politik kepada syarikat korporat selepas pendaftaran parti itu dibatalkan dan dibentuk semula akibat perebutan kuasa Mahathir-Razaleigh pada penghujung 1980an.

Raja Petra membuat tuduhan itu dalam tujahannya terhadap Mahathir, yang mengerakkan kempen menjatuhkan Presiden UMNO dan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak, selepas berjaya mengulingkan penggantinya, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Kempen Mahathir itu menyorot perhatian ke hal kewangan syarikat berkaitan kerajaan, 1MDB, dengan penekanan kepada deposit US$600 juta dalam akaun peribadi Najib yang menurut pemerintah sebenarnya derma politik dari Arab Saudi untuk pilihan raya umum 2013.

RPK dalam tujahannya berkata bekas perdana menteri itu telah berbohong dalam surat terbukanya kepada ahli-ahli UMNO minggu lalu, dalam cubaan menarik sokongan mereka untuk menjatuhkan Najib.

Beliau berkata Mahathir tidak menceritakan sepenuh kebenaran dan berbohong untuk mengambil kesempatan diatas generasi muda yang tidak arif akan sejarah UMNO dan dirinya.

Beliau berkata UMNO dihimpit masalah kewangan akibat daripada pembatalan pendaftaran parti itu oleh mahkamah selepas Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah hampir menumpaskan Mahathir dalam pemilihan parti 1987.

Semua aset UMNO dibekukan dan banyak cawangan dan bahagian UMNO disaman oleh bank. Menjelang pilihan raya umum 1990, UMNO tidak berduit dan terpaksa merayu sumbangan daripada tauke-tauke kaya dan ahli-ahli perniagaan," kata Raja Petra.

Tentu sekali sumbangan itu bukan seikhlas hati," tegasnya dan parti itu membalas 'kemurahan hati' penderma dengan konsesi dan kontrak melalui penswastaan aset kerajaan, pemberian permit dan cara lain.

Bermula dari situlah UMNO bertukar daripada parti politik kepada entiti korporat," tulis Raja Petra. Mahathir pada ketika itu memutuskan bahawa UMNO memerlukan berbilion ringgit untuk kempen sekiranya tidak mahu hidup susah.

Turut diputuskan kemewahan UMNO tidak akan dipegang atas nama parti, tetapi atas nama pemegang amanah, penama dan proksi. Presiden UMNO, timbalan presidennya, bendahari dan beberapa yang lain diberi tanggungjawab untuk menyimpan wang tunai, aset dan pelaburan UMNO atas nama masing-masing, jelas Raja Petra.

Beliau menekankan bahawa penemuan RM2.6 bilion dalam simpanan Najib itu adalah akibat daripada perbuatan Mahathir sendiri.

Bahkan, Mahathir sebagai seorang penama masih memegang kira-kira RM100-RM200 bilion harta UMNO," kata Raja Petra.

Beliau mencabar Mahathir supaya memulangkan harta itu sebelum mencabar Najib berkenaan RM2.6 bilion yang disimpan dalam akaun peribadi.

Raja Petra berkata "ratusan pemimpin pembangkang tahu perkara ini", dan menamakan Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail antara yang tahu.

Menurut Raja Petra, Kit Siang telah memohon injunksi terhadap United Engineers Malaysia (UEM) pada 1988 apabila syarikat itu, yang merupakan salah-satu daripada proksi atau penama UMNO, diberi kontrak Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan.

Mereka tahu mengapa RM2.6 bilion dimasukkan ke dalam akaun peribadi Najib dan bukan akaun bank UMNO. Ia kerana sistem yang diperkenalkan Mahathir pada 1998," kata Raja Petra. "Mereka berpura-pura tidak tahu supaya mereka boleh menjadikan RM2.6 bilion sebagai isu. Rakyat Malaysia termakan penipuan itu bulat-bulat."

Beliau mencabar Mahathir supaya menjelaskan apa jadi dengan aset RM100-RM200 bilion milik UMNO itu dan mengapa ia disimpan atas namanya dan bukan parti.

Raja Petra mencabar bekas pemimpin UMNO itu supaya menunjukkan bukti beliau telah memulangkan harta parti itu kepada parti.

Mahathir's festival of lies

Mahathir should explain what happened to RM100-200 billion of Umno's wealth. He should also show the evidence that he has returned that RM100-200 billion to Umno. And he further needs to explain why in the first place that RM100-200 billion of Umno's wealth is being held by him and not by the party.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

Raja Petra Kamarudin

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is at it again, lying through his teeth. In his message to the Umno branches (SEE BELOW), Mahathir has stated many half-truths and lies. The younger generation who are ignorant of the history of Mahathir and Umno would probably swallow this 'letter' wholesale. Anyway, let me correct the errors in Mahathir's 'letter'.

Walaupun saya disingkir sekali dan tinggal UMNO dua kali, saya tidak pernah menyertai parti lain.

Yes, Dr Mahathir has been sacked and/or left Umno a number of times in the past. However, as he said, he never 'joined' another party. But that is only because if he joins another party then he would be barred from rejoining Umno (and he only merajuk but wants to rejoin Umno later once he gets what he wants). And joining here means to fill in the form and sign up as a member of the party plus pay the RM1.00 (or RM2.00) fees.

Mahathir, however, did join other parties (as in join the gang where no forms need to be filled in or signed and fees paid). And he joined these parties, which were all enemies of Umno, to attack Umno. In fact, from 2006-2008 he even campaigned against Umno and told Malaysians to punish Umno by voting for the opposition.

And in the 2008 general election Malaysians did just that, which was at the behest of Mahathir.

So the word 'menyertai' or 'join' is merely a technicality here and an issue of semantics. PAS has one million registered members. However, there are another one million members of PAS who have never filled in the form or paid their membership fees. But they are still PAS members with or without the form.

DAP, as well, has only a few registered members. But there are ten times more non-registered members who still consider themselves as members of DAP even though no form has been filled in and signed or membership fees paid.

Anyway, what is the mere RM1.00 membership fee when the 'unregistered members' donate millions to DAP?

So, yes, Mahathir did not 'join' (as in fill in a form) the opposition when he left or was sacked from Umno. But he did join them nevertheless. And, today, no one will deny that Mahathir is thede facto Opposition Leader.

Saya tetap setia kepada UMNO. Saya sayang UMNO bukan kerana nama-nya UMNO tetapi kerana perjuangannya untuk bangsa, agama dan negara.

Yes, and Mahathir demonstrated this in 2006-2008 by asking Malaysians to punish Umno by voting opposition. And what he is doing today is going to make Malaysians vote opposition again in 2018.

If that is how Mahathir loves Umno I fear what will happen if he ever hates Umno.

Tidak ada Perdana Menteri terdahulu yang menjadikan UMNO sebagai benteng untuk pertahankan diri, tidak Dato Onn, tidak Tunku Abdul Rahman, tidak Tun Razak, tidak Tun Hussein.

What Mahathir failed to mention is that Onn Jaafar left Umno to start another party (and never returned to Umno) while Tunku Abdul Rahman and Tun Hussein Onn never joined Umno Baru and died outside Umno because they regarded Umno Baru as 'parti Mahathir' and not the original Umno that was formed in 1946.

Hence these ex-Umno leaders and Prime Ministers of Malaysia regarded Umno Baru as Mahathir's benteng untuk pertahankan diri — the very thing that Mahathir said the other Umno leaders before him did not do (and which Mahathir alleges Najib is doing). In short, Tunku Abdul Rahman and Hussein Onn (plus hundreds of other Umno leaders) accused Mahathir of precisely what he is accusing Najib of.

Pemimpin-pemimpin yang masih ada dalam UMNO kebanyakannya berada kerana kepentingan diri, kerana takut kepada Najib, kerana dapat nikmat dari Najib.

Yes, unfortunately that has been the Umno culture since 1981 when Mahathir took over as party President cum Prime Minister. And that is why HALF of Umno (yes, HALF of Umno) turned against him in 1987.

Mahathir had turned Umno into his personal party and he used money and threats to keep the members in line. Some of those who opposed him were even declared bankrupt. He also used the Internal Security Act on Umno leaders who spoke out against him. One of those is today the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia.

If, today, Najib is guilty of these 'crimes', as Mahathir alleges, it is because 30 years ago Mahathir introduced this system and culture into Umno. Hence Mahathir is merely a victim of his own creation. As they say, what goes around comes around, or those who live by the sword die by the sword.

Mereka tidak peduli akan skandal kewangan yang melibat Najib, akan wang berbillion yang ada dalam akaun bank Najib. Sesungguhnya Perdana Menteri Malaysia tidak boleh miliki wang berbillion atau terima wang sebegitu banyak.

In 1988, when Umno was deregistered, the party faced a lot of financial difficulties. That was because Umno's assets were all frozen and the banks were suing many Umno branches and divisions. When the 1990 general election came, Umno had no money and it had to go begging for donations from rich towkays and businessmen.

Of course, the donations were not free. Umno had to grant a lot of concessions, businesses and contracts — privatisation, quotas, permits, etc., included — to these businessmen. And that was when Umno was turned from a political party into a corporate entity.

Yes, 1988 to 1990 was the turning point for Umno. That was when Mahathir decided that unless Umno had billions (or tens of billions) to its name, then the future was going to be tough going.

It was also decided that no longer must Umno hold all its wealth in the name of the party. From then on Umno must use trustees, nominees and proxies. And almost 30 years ago it was decided that the Umno President, Deputy President, Treasurer, etc., would hold in their personal names Umno's cash, assets and investments.

So what is Mahathir talking about? The RM2.6 billion cash that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is or was holding in his personal bank account is what was agreed back in 1988-1990. The Umno President, Deputy President, Treasurer, etc., are supposed to act as Umno's trustees, nominees and proxies.

In fact, Mahathir is still holding an estimated RM100-200 billion of Umno's wealth as trustee. Maybe Mahathir should return that RM100-200 billion to Umno and then talk about the RM2.6 billion that Najib held in his personal bank account.

Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng, Anwar Ibrahim, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and the hundreds of other opposition leaders all know this. Remember when Lim Kit Siang went to court to try to obtain an injunction against UEM back in 1988? This was because UEM was one of Umno's many proxies or nominees. So they all know why the RM2.6 billion was banked into Najib's personal bank account and not Umno's bank account. It is the system that Mahathir introduced in 1988.

They are only pretending they do not know so that they can make an issue of the RM2.6 billion. And Malaysians are swallowing this lie — hook, line and sinker. This shows how stupid Malaysians are to be easily conned by this 'Najib stole RM2.6 billion' lie.

The rest of what Mahathir said are mere rhetoric, insinuations, slander, conjecture, and so on. If Mahathir really has any evidence to back up his claims then why does he not produce them? He makes allegations and then asks the accused to prove his innocence.

Mahathir should explain what happened to RM100-200 billion of Umno's wealth. He should also show the evidence that he has returned that RM100-200 billion to Umno. And he further needs to explain why in the first place that RM100-200 billion of Umno's wealth is being held by him and not by the party.

And don't tell me that I need to prove that Mahathir is holding RM100-200 billion of Umno's wealth. According to the new 'rules of the game', the accused needs to prove innocence and not the accuser prove guilt.

SURAT KEPADA AHLI-AHLI CAWANGAN UMNO

Saudara-saudari sekalian,

Assalamualaikum,

Izinkan saya menerangkan sedikit berkenaan keputusan saya untuk keluar dari UMNO. Berbanding dengan pemimpin-pemimpin "UMNO" yang ada sekarang, saya lebih lama berada dalam UMNO. Walaupun saya disingkir sekali dan tinggal UMNO dua kali, saya tidak pernah menyertai parti lain. Saya tetap setia kepada UMNO. Saya sayang UMNO bukan kerana nama-nya UMNO tetapi kerana perjuangannya untuk bangsa, agama dan negara.

Hari ini "UMNO" tidak lagi berjuang kerana bangsa, agama dan negara. Hari ini perjuangan "UMNO" terhad kepada pengekalan Dato' Sri Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri. Tidak ada Perdana Menteri terdahulu yang menjadikan UMNO sebagai benteng untuk pertahankan diri, tidak Dato Onn, tidak Tunku Abdul Rahman, tidak Tun Razak, tidak Tun Hussein. Saya juga tidak menggunakan UMNO untuk mempertahankan diri. Bahkan saya, seperti Tunku, rela meletak jawatan.

Oleh kerana perjuangan UMNO sudah bertukar, maka pertubuhan ini bukan lagi UMNO. Ia sudah jadi pertubuhan lain. Pemimpin-pemimpin yang masih ada dalam UMNO kebanyakannya berada kerana kepentingan diri, kerana takut kepada Najib, kerana dapat nikmat dari Najib. Mereka tidak peduli akan skandal kewangan yang melibat Najib, akan wang berbillion yang ada dalam akaun bank Najib. Sesungguhnya Perdana Menteri Malaysia tidak boleh miliki wang berbillion atau terima wang sebegitu banyak.

Dalam perjuangan kita perlu menentukan sasaran utama kita. Sasaran kita ialah Najib kerana dia merosakkan imej negara, menjadikan negara yang terkenal didunia sebagai mempunyai amalan rasuah tertinggi.

Kita lihat di Timur Tengah orang Islam yang anggap orang Yahudi adalah musuh mereka yang sebenar tetapi mereka lebih utamakan permusuhan sesama mereka sehingga mereka berperang sesama sendiri. Akhirnya Israel tepuk tangan melihat orang Islam membuat kerja mereka. Di Malaysia hari ini bukan parti lawan yang menjadi musuh utama tetapi Najib, kerana Najib merosakkan parti sehingga hampir kalah PRU 13. Parti lawan tidak boleh kalahkan kita. Tetapi Najib boleh.

Najib sudah menjadikan UMNO sebagai parti miliknya sendiri. Malangnya kepimpinan Najib melemahkan parti. UMNO tetap kalah PRU 14 jika dipimpin oleh Najib. Adanya parti lawan sejak merdeka tidak pernah menghapuskan sokongan rakyat kepada UMNO sehinggalah Najib memimpin UMNO. Prestasinya lebih buruk dari Abdullah.

Yang menimbul masalah dan kepincangan dalam negara ialah Najib. Hutang negara meningkat sebanyak lebih dari 50 billion Ringgit kerana 1MDB. Sebilangan besar dari wang ini sudah hilang. Untuk menampung wang yang hilang ini, Najib menjual tanah Kerajaan yang dibeli dengan harga RM60/- satu kaki persegi kepada Tabung Haji dengan harga RM3500/-.

Tiba-tiba dilaporkan Najib mempunyai wang sebanyak RM2.6 billion dalam akaun peribadinya di Ambank. Juga wang sebanyak RM42 juta dari SRC ada bersama. Dakwaan kononnya semua wang ini adalah hadiah dari orang Arab tidak masuk akal. Perdana Menteri Malaysia tidak harus terima wang yang sebegitu banyak dari sesiapa pun.

Pemerintahan Najib kejam. Siapa yang menegurnya disingkir dari parti, dibuang jawatan, ditangkap dan dihadapkan ke mahkamah. Undang-undang baru dibuat untuk memberi kuasa kepada Kerajaan Najib memasuk dalam tahanan siapa sahaja tanpa dibicara.

Kerana semua ini saya keluar dari parti pimpinan Najib dan sebagai rakyat negara tercinta ini saya akan sambut desakan ramai rakyat untuk membuat sesuatu bagi mengembali pemerintahan yang adil ke negara ini.

Saya menjemput ahli-ahli UMNO yang sayang kepada perjuangan asal UMNO membantu saya untuk menyelamatkan parti dan negara ini. Kemukakanlah usul undi tidak percaya terhadap Najib sebagai Presiden parti dan Perdana Menteri di mesyuarat-mesyuarat cawangan UMNO. Usulkan juga agar pemilihan parti tidak ditangguhkan, dan dilaksanakan pada tahun ini juga

Kita tidak boleh tunggu PRU 14 kerana UMNO yang dipimpin oleh Najib tetap akan kalah. Sekali UMNO kalah ia tidak dapat dipulih semula.

Terima Kasih

Selamat bersidang

Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad

Dr Mahathir Desak Orang Melayu Sokong DAP

(Suara TV) – Bekas perdana menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad hari ini merayu agar masyarakat Melayu melupakan seketika permusahan dengan DAP bagi melawan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak

Menurut Dr Mahathir beliau sedar ramai orang Umno yang terkilan dengan tindakannya untuk bekerjasama dengan Penasihat DAP, Lim Kit Siang ketika sidang akhbar 'Deklarasi rakyat' Jumaat lalu.

"Ramai ahli UMNO yang rasa terkilan dan tidak senang melihat Kit Siang dan DAP berada diatas pentas yang sama dengan UMNO dan pemimpinnya, yang lama dan yang baru. Kenapakah ahli dan pemimpin UMNO sanggup bersama dengan DAP dan Kit Siang?

"Amat sukar bagi ramai dalam kedua-dua parti yang bermusuh ini menerima bahawa mereka yang menghadiri dan menandatangani deklarasi menolak Najib, menghadiri bukan sebagai ahli dan pemimpin parti politik atau gerakan, tetapi mereka hadir sebagai "citizen", rakyat Malaysia yang khuatir akan kesan buruk perlakuan Najib sebagai Perdana Menteri" katanya dalam tulisan terbaru di blognya hari ini.

Menurut Dr Mahathir, beliau terpaksa mengambil tindakan tersebut kerana kerana tidak mempunyai pilihan lain untuk memastikan Perdana Menteri berundur.

"Oleh itu tokoh-tokoh dalam pelbagai bidang terpaksa membelakangkan pertubuhan dan perjuangan mereka supaya suara mereka dapat diperdengarkan kepada semua. Mereka perlu bertindak sebagai "citizen" (rakyat) dan bukan lagi sebagai parti atau badan-badan tertentu.

"Kesedaran inilah yang menyebabkan mereka yang bermusuh membelakangkan permusuhan buat sementara. Mengutamakan parti masing-masing bermakna menyokong dan mengekal rejim Najib," tegasnya lagi.

Bekas Perdana Menteri itu membangkitkan apa yang berlaku kepada umat Islam di Timur Tengah, yang gagal melupakan perbezaan sesama mereka bagi menentang musuh bersama.

THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO REMOVE NAJIB AS PM IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR EYES

Umar Mukhtar

Amanah's Strategy Director, Dr. Dzulkefli Ahmad, has appealed to reform-minded Malaysians to put aside all differences among them and focus on removing Najib Razak as prime minister. The reason being Najib is the biggest stumbling block to reforms in the country.

I would then go a step further. The best way to remove Najib Razak, in order to achieve the above ends, is to get rid of Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and have nothing to do with him in the noble efforts by reformists to cleanse this country of the mess, which incidentally, were created by him.

We want him out of the scene, this stumbling block.

Is it because he is no longer powerful and influential that we want him out of the picture? Is it because he can no longer reach out to the pockets of the population, which the reform movement could not, and is therefore indispensable as a partner as put forth by some over-the-hill thinkers from Amanah?

Is it because we don't want to be associated with born-again democrats? Is it because he has not been elected to lead us but it was just agreed to by a handful of people who think they represent the majority of Malaysians? It is because we are not really serious about winning?

On the contrary, we are dead serious about reforms. And that's why Mahathir has to go.

There are far too many of my friends out here who are still not on the bandwagon to remove Najib yet because they say Mahathir is there. Politicians can rationalise all they want about why they are keeping him, but we true reformists know of only one thing – you do not breed poisonous snakes just for them to eat rats that are bothering you. After the rats are gone, are we to welcome the snakes into our homes to play with our babies?

Our objective is to remove all pests and not breed one pest to kill another pest. Otherwise who will remove the winning pest after the job is done? Another bigger pest? It's about time that we know how to get rid of pests ourselves.

Further, this pest has never disavowed biting humans. Are we to trust him slithering around the house hissing with his forked tongue? Are we so trusting of this snake just because he says he hates rats so much? Snakes hate rats because they compete for the same food. We hate rats because they are dirty disease-bearing scum. So we hate rats too, but that does not mean we are buddies with snakes.

It's like the perverted-thinking armchair theorists of the CIA who espoused that the best way to oust the Basheer Assad of Syria was to arm the Syrian rebels. Millions of dollars were poured in but to no avail. They were too soft according to the Americans. Some smart-ass suggested pouring of hundreds of millions of dollars more.

As intended, it was enough to attract jihadists not unlike those who fought the Russians in Afghanistan. A monster with a difference was thus created and the result is the whole world is struggling now with the richest terrorist group in the world. Basheer is still up there barrel-bombing innocent civilians but Iraq is now badly split. So much 'for the enemy of my enemy is my friend' bullshit.

Trust? Remember just before the 1999 general elections when the then PM Mahathir felt threatened by his own race? He promised Chinese voters the sky and the moon. The Chinese rallied behind him and saved his ass. After the elections he was reminded of his out of this world promises and he just shrugged his shoulders and said that he was not going to do anything about them because he only said those things to win the election. It's on record.

The gall of it all! Can you believe this Mamak? But there's a sucker born every day. And there's more coming because they would like to think that they are so smart and so sophisticated thinkers. They say that they need a powerful partner to win. But the fact is after winning, can the weak beat the powerful? And Mahathir will be installed as chief reformist? What a joke.

Remove Mahathir, the stumbling block, the obstacle to reforms, and many more will be there with you. Otherwise, naughty thoughts do cross our minds. What if Najib is kept as PM and enjoy watching Mahathir jumping around like a cat on a hot tin roof. After all, it's no loss to us. It would be the same for us if the so-called reform movement wins with Mahathir on top anyway

Pakatan jatuhkan PM sia-sia – Hadi

KUALA LUMPUR 9 Mac - Pas menyifatkan pakatan Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad dan pembangkang bagi menjatuhkan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak sebagai kerja sia-sia.


Presidennya, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang ketika menegaskan perkara itu berkata, setiap tindakan yang mahu dilakukan perlu munasabah dan tidak boleh dilaksanakan secara gopoh.


Sebaliknya, Ahli Parlimen Marang itu berkata, sebarang perubahan kerajaan perlu dilakukan secara demokrasi sama ada melalui pilihan raya atau undi tidak percaya.

"Saya sudah membuat kenya­taan awal ada tempat yang kita bersetuju dan ada perkara kita tidak bersetuju. Kita bersetuju perubahan hendak dilakukan tetapi tidak bersetuju (dibuat secara) gopoh.


"(Kalau) hendak buat undi tidak percaya pula mestilah majo­riti di Parlimen, mesti orang UMNO sendiri (bersama). Kalau UMNO tidak ubah, kita sahaja 14 kerusi ini nak ubah, nak buat apa?


"(Oleh itu, pakatan) itu sia-sia (kerana setiap tindakan) mesti ada munasabahnya," katanya kepada pemberita di lobi Parlimen, hari ini.


Jumaat lalu, bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin dan bekas Menteri Besar Kedah, Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Mahathir adalah antara 58 orang yang menandatangani deklarasi bagi menyokong penyingkiran Najib.


Acara menandatangani deklarasi itu yang diketuai Dr. Mahathir, turut disertai Lim Kit Siang daripada DAP; Menteri Besar Selangor, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali (PKR) dan bekas Presiden MCA, Tun Dr. Ling Liong Sik.


Mengulas lanjut, Abdul Hadi berkata, pemimpin-pemimpin parti itu juga tidak ada kata sepakat atau sebulat suara berhubung deklarasi tersebut memandangkan ada antara pemimpin mereka turut hadir dalam majlis deklarasi itu.


Katanya, kepemimpinan parti itu juga belum memutuskan sama ada mahu mengadakan mesyuarat berhubung perkara itu atau sebaliknya.


"Ada perkara kita mesyuarat, ada perkara yang perlu kepada pandangan kepemimpinan parti, bukan semua perkara nak mesyuarat.

Response to Syed Saddiq’s Shoot-in-the-Dark Diversions @syedsaddiq

Saudara Syed Saddiq,

You had accepted my challenge to debate on 1MDB (and supposedly also later on Tabung Haji) but the Debate Thread created has seen only deafening silence from you. I know I said you could take your time responding but you have not argued on even one of the 11 allegations I listed down. I had asked you to at least state whether you agree or disagree with any of the allegations and your argument can come later. I even let you have the flexibility of modifying, deleting and adding allegations. Nothing on the debate thread.

Anyway, while waiting for you I thought I might as well respond to your first "argument and concerns" that was obviously intended to be a diversion from the allegations I listed down. Diversion pun diversion lah… I'll humour you anyway but let me say though, that this is the kind of tiresome questioning that I had wanted to avoid because it simply shows you are shooting in the dark and flinging as much mud as possible at the wall hoping some will stick but yet not prove anything.

After this I expect you to state your position for each allegation and argue your case based on facts, logic and common sense on the debate thread. No more delaying and diversion tactics from you please — show respect for the public who are waiting for you to argue your case.

So okay, I'll respond to your diversion:

Hello mate!

To facilitate this debate/dialogue, i'll structure my concerns in 3 segments: 1) Interference into the ongoing investigation 2) 1MDB-Business model (Political financing) 3) The lies & flip flopped excuses

1) INTERFERENCE IN ONGOING INVESTIGATION

Whys was the special task force set up last year broken up by the PMO/DS Najib?

First of all, the "special task force had no legitimacy. Under what authority could it be legally constituted? Secondly, it was not "broken up" by Najib but it died a natural death when the new AG had the sense to see not only was there no good purpose for it but a prosecutor cannot be part of an investigation — surely that is common sense. Not having such a task force does not prevent BNM, MACC, PDRM and AGC from cooperating with each other (like they had always done before in cases involving the illegal transfer of funds, smuggling and underground activities) but at least it minimises illegal collusion and conspiracy among government officers with hidden agenda. Furthermore, the task force was supposedly set up to investigate WSJ's claims that donations came from 1MDB and very early on it was established by MACC itself that the money did not come from 1MDB. (Refer to my rebuttal to Allegation #1: The RM2.6 billion donation came from 1MDB — which you have conveniently ignored). It had also been known early on that the "personal" account that received the money from SRCI was not managed by Najib but by others. Conclusion: The dissolution of the task force has no impact on the final verdict.

-2 High ranking special branch officers removed/transferred after in the midst of the investigation. -Members of the PAC upgraded to become Ministers in the cabinet in the midst of the investigation. (Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican (deputy foreign affairs minister), Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin (tourism and culture deputy minister) and Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau

I stand corrected but I believe the SB officers were removed for insubordination. It was also clear from news reports that at least one of the SB officers declared his loyalty to Tun M and not to the government therefore his judgment would be biased and corrupted. As for the PAC members, at most it merely delayed the process but why should being in the PAC prevent members from being promoted? In any case I don't see how these transfers destroyed or changed any evidence to prove allegations. Please answer this question: Did any evidence or investigation papers go missing as a result? If so then what evidence / papers was destroyed? If no evidence / papers went missing then you are making a big issue out of nothing i.e. just a directionless diversion. Conclusion: No impact on the final verdict.

- 2 high ranking MACC officers transferred out and in again. A clear act of intimidation. Also, having MACC officers house raided.

There were grounds for suspicion of leakage of documents by MACC and conspiracy to illegally topple a leader. MACC officers are not immune from being investigated. The officers don't sound that they are intimidated. On the contrary the MACC officers were cocky making statements to the press to the extent that Tan Sri Abu Kassim had to issue a disguised statement basically telling them to shut up. Regardless, did any evidence go missing as a result? If so then what evidence was destroyed? If no evidence went missing and they can still leak information then this is a non issue. We have also been overtaken by events whereby MACC has "completed" their investigation and yet provided no evidence of crime committed. Conclusion: No impact on the final verdict.

- The former Attorney General, arbitrarily retired due to "health reasons" despite him saying otherwise. Why is that?

If you were more perceptive you would pick up that the official "health reason" was for him to make a graceful exit. He could have been sacked for incompetence, negligence, non-performance and/or conspiracy to illegally topple the PM. He could also have been jailed and lose his pension. Nothing is stopping him from babbling to the media -- why do you think he is quiet? Whatever evidence Gani had, MACC and BNM would logically also have since they were in the same "task force" therefore Gani's exit would not affect the evidence, if ever there was any. Conclusion: No impact on the final verdict.

I wrote about Gani's retirement and suspected conspiracies on 09/7/2015: OOP… BE-LEAVE IT OR NOT , on 28/7/2015: ZAPPERS ARE AG-ITATED and on 31/7/2015: FROM FALSE CHARGE SHEET TO TRUE STUPIDITY

-The Bank negara report (stating wrongdoing of 1MDB) sidelined by the newly-appointed AG of MAlaysia, handpicked by DS Najib.

State SPECIFICALLY and EXPLICITLY the alleged wrongdoing of 1MDB. What evidence did BNM provide? Did BNM say the RM2.6b was from 1MDB - Yes or No. Did BNM say there was money laundering - Yes or No. Did BNM say the donation going into a "personal" account was a crime - Yes or No. My answer to each question is No but you are welcome to prove otherwise. It is also an open secret that BNM has always known and had approved the large donations going into the bank account as well as 1MDB's offshore payments. See if you get the point in these posts: "BNM STATEMENT.... THAT'S ALL YOU'VE GOT?" and, for a bit of humour, "YOU CAN BANK ON THE AGC". Conclusion: You're grasping at straws.

-The MACC findings sidelined as well by the newly appointed AG. (Why is that?) The appeal committee soon to be replaced. The new AG not turning up to the meeting with members of the appeal committee.

State SPECIFICALLY and EXPLICITLY what the AG got wrong with MACC's findings and not short-string it with MACC being "sidelined". The AG went through the IPs before arriving at a decision and theAG explained his decision in a press statement. Also there is no such thing as an "appeal committee" — where did you conjure that up? The meeting between MACC and AG was not intended to be a formal meeting. MACC had wanted to make a courtesy call to the new AG. And since there was nothing official or urgent about the meeting, the AG postponed it because he was summoned by the Sultan on a particular legal issue on national interest that I am not at liberty to mention. If you meant the ORP, which is not an "appeal committee" by the way, then why did the ORP deny MACC's statements? Conclusion: You're grasping at straws.

-Why charge DS Khairuddin & Matthias Chang under SOSMA for reporting this alleged corruption abroad? What is there to hide?

They were not charged under SOSMA. They were charged under Section 124L of the Penal Code. SOSMA is not a law but a procedure. They are being charged for sabotaging banking and financial services and deservedly so. That aside, what evidence did they provide to substantiate their allegation of corruption? What is there for Khairuddin and Matthias to hide from the public that they were willing to share with foreign authorities? I suspect doctored documents and/or selective information that do not tell the true story.

I mean, HK, Switzerland, Singapore & US have opened up investigations into the matter. There must be some truth behind their statements.

What evidence has been provided so far to show there was corruption? None. In this respect the Swiss AG said Najib was not being investigated, the FBI did not arrest Najib when he was in the US recently and Najib has not been afraid to travel abroad despite there surely must be "some truth behind their statements". Maybe you can explain why. Conclusion: You're grasping at straws with merely "There must be some truth behind their statements" — that is not an argument.

-Media critical of this issue widely suppressed. The Sarawak Report/The Edge/Medium and now TMI. Why not take them to the court instead?

You should know that many times TMI has changed their news article headlines because they were misleading They should have been blocked very much earlier. The Edge also made a u-turn on their reporting of 1MDB when they reported the Edra sale — they only had good things to say. Whether any of the media is taken to court later is up to 1MDB and/or the government and it may depend on timing. Maybe they are waiting for the right time e.g. for all reports to be finalised and official that can then be used as undisputed evidence in court. Having said that, will you then make a u-turn if 1MDB or the government sues? Yes or No. If you say you will wait for the court verdict then we all know that the court process will take too long. That being the case the government might as well focus on other priority issues. Not taking any of the media to court is not evidence of wrongdoing.

Aren't these based in Malaysia? Kalau nak bawa ke mahkamah, senang.

Senang? Look at how many cases have taken years to conclude. Don't be naive. Do you recall when TMI made 4 apologies in a week and were not taken to court? Tell you what, why don't you ask those media to take 1MDB to court if they feel 1MDB was wrong to accuse them of lying and spinning. It will give them a chance to prove their allegations.

I won't even start on WSJ/BBC/Al Jazeera/NYT (list of others who have also made the same allegations)

What about them? State SPECIFICALLY and EXPLICITLY the allegations they made so that I know you understand what you're talking about. You couldn't even comment on the specific allegations I listed in the other thread made easy for you. The lies are easily disproved without taking them to court (e.g. source of RM2.6b) while ambiguous statements are not worth taking them to court. Whether to sue or not also depends on legal technicalities and the impact it will have on the Saudi donors but surely you agree that is poor journalism standards and pathetic for WSJ to quote unknown sources without any corroborating evidence. Indeed WSJ was short of answers during the live Q&A session with the public on Facebook so please explain why do you still believe them - See my status "QUESTION AND NO-ANSWER SESSION WITH WSJ" .

Are all of these coincidences?

Coincidences of what? Same news reports? Of course not a coincidence. For example, the NY Post would quote WSJ and Sarawak Report. Sarawak Report parrots local tabloids and even Rafizi's blog. FMT, TMI, MKini quote each other etc. The Edge owns TMI. WSJ, New York Post and Sunday Times are owned by Rupert Murdoch. So please, use common sense. Conclusion: Not a coincidence but coordinated and poor standards of journalism.

By the way, BBC reported "… the payment was authorised from the very top - from Saudi Arabia's late King Abdullah - with funds coming from both his personal finances and state funds… The purpose of the donation was simple, said the Saudi source - it was to help Mr Najib and his coalition win the election, employing a strategic communications team with international experience, focusing on the province of Sarawak, and funding social programmes through party campaigning". CNBC also then quoted the BBC so why don't you believe both CNBC and BBC?

I say otherwise.

Am I supposed to be convinced merely because you "say otherwise"? That is not the quality of someone who is supposed to be debating champion of Asia. I'm still waiting for you to provide your argument and facts to substantiate allegations. "I say otherwise" is merely a bare denial, not an argument.

2) 1MDB Business model

- 1MDB borrowed RM20 Billion to purchase 3 power plants (over priced by 12.1 BILLION), then eventually sold it for RM9.83 Billion (at a loss of 2.27 BILLION).

As alleged by the WSJ & SR corroborated by documents & paperwork, the money was then used for campaign funding (through a special account)

Please elaborate what you mean by "over priced by RM12.1 billion". You then contradict yourself by saying it was sold at a loss of RM2.27 billion. Did 1MDB manage to add value of almost RM10 billion between the time they bought and later sell the power assets? That would be hugely impressive — unless, of course, you were wrong i.e. the purchase wasn't overpriced by RM12 billion in the first place. Nonetheless if you can explain how they overpaid by RM12 billion then you should also be able to explain how they recouped RM10 billion before the sell-off. Also can you please tell me what kind of IRR 1MDB was looking at, which indicated the purchase to be overpriced by RM12 billion — or were you merely comparing to the net book value of assets?

But actually, 1MDB did not make a loss of RM2.27 billion. You forgot to take into account the fact that the buyer would also take over the liabilities. The RM9.83 billion is cash equity without debt — did you not do your homework? Meaning, with the buyer also assuming the debts, the overall price will be much higher (about RM17 billion), which essentially rubbishes your claim of a RM2.27b loss. (Did you also then understand the Bandar Malaysia party equity sale? Read my post where Sat Dee was schooled).

Is this legit?

The allegation that 1MDB's money was used for campaign funding? Of course it would be wrong. So can you show me where in the financial statements of 1MDB it shows that money was used for "campaign funding"? You won't find it because it didn't happen. I already laid the facts that imply "campaign funding" vis-a-vis the RM2.6b did not come from 1MDB and I am still waiting for you to provide other evidence, facts or logical reasoning that show otherwise. You have not read or totally ignored my argument based on the facts given. (Refer to my rebuttal to Allegation #1 in the debate thread).

-1MDB invested or lent a total of US$1.83 billion to Petrosaudi International (PSI) Limited between 2009 and 2011 under the pretext of bogus projects or non-existent assets. Bank Negara Malaysia had demanded 1MDB return above money to Malaysia as their approval was given based on misinformation submitted by 1MDB. Of this sum, a total of US$ 1.45 billion was directly and indirectly siphoned off to Good Star Limited and other companies controlled by Low Taek Jho.

You are recycling wild allegations without showing anything to substantiate them.

Also refer to my rebuttal on Allegation #2 (US$700 million was siphoned out via Good Star Limited) in the debate thread.Refer to my postings (links given above) on BNM's ambiguous statement.I had already shown in the debate thread why even US$700 million could not have been stolen from 1MDB, let alone your ridiculous figure of US$1.45 billion. Now show me how US$1.45 billion could have been siphoned out without detection by auditors, BNM, MACC or PAC. (If you want to show a colourful chart of money flow then be prepared for me to grill you on the chart later — better to save yourself that embarrassment if you can't prove any crime based on the chart).You are also implying that auditors signed off on fraudulent and falsified accounts. We are talking about US$1.83 billion of non existent assets according to you. I challenge you to make a police report against the auditors or at least submit your case to MIA or MICPA. Ada berani?

To hide the missing funds, 1MDB "disoised" its investments and loans to PSI for US$2.318 billion, claiming to have made a profit of US$488 million. However, no money was returned to Malaysia. Instead, 1MDB claimed it invested the funds in Cayman Islands that was subsequently found to be an unlicensed investment manager.

Sorry, I don't know know the meaning of "disoised". I assume you mean "disposed"? (Next time you should read and understand properly whenever someone sends you something to copy paste. If the word doesn't make sense, just ask him). The investment made, proceeds and US$488m gain are correct but you are clearly ignorant about other facts. Refer to my rebuttal to Allegation #2 (US$700 million was siphoned out via Good Star Limited) in the debate thread. The investment also appeared in 1MDB's FY2014 financial statements so do you expect people to take your word versus Deloite (the auditors who said they still stand by the accounts), the Auditor-General and PAC even if you don't believe 1MDB's official statement? What have you got to show that I should believe you instead of them? I don't know details about Bridge Partners -- though I believe they were licenced at the time they held 1MDB's investment -- but it doesn't change the fact that after the redemption the financial asset was held through BSI Bank Singapore without any issues. What are you actually concluding here? At best there is an administrative irregularity and at worst you are telling a lie.

This subsequently led to KPMY (one of the auditors) being sacked. Is this a fair practice in the midst of a crisis?

KPMG (not KPMY) was not sacked. Change of auditors is nothing unusual and MK2 Husni in a TV interview already explained that international standards recommended the change of auditors preferably every 3 years. If KPMG was sacked over irregularities in 1MDB, they would have a duty to report fraud so why didn't they? KPMG partners would not risk going to jail. Even if KPMG was "sacked", the next auditor (Deloitte) would not dare endorse the cover-up of any crime or endorse an accounting disclosure /omission that would violate accounting standards and the Companies Act. Bear in mind that it is a big team of people (juniors, seniors, supervisor, manager, partners) doing audits and any one of them can anonymously blow the whistle to authorities or even leak information to pro-opposition leaders if there was a crime being covered up and that would have triggered an investigation into audit working papers. But like I said on the debate thread, we don't see KPMG or Deloite shredding papers like Arthur Andersen did during the Enron scam.

- 1MDB also took another loan of US$975 million from a Deutsche Bank-led consortium in September 2014, for the very same purpose of compensating Aabar for the terminated options. The Wall Street Journal has exposed the fact that these money have been paid to a different British Virgin Islands entity with a similar name, "Aabar Investment PJS Limited", whose beneficial owner is completely unrelated to IPIC.

What we know is that 1MDB did pay Aabar from the proceeds of the first redemption of US$1.22b — refer to the disclosure note in 1MDB's FY2014 audited accounts. Whether part of the US$975m loan was also used to pay for the option termination (assuming more than one payment) is at best secondary and at worst totally meaningless and irrelevant. The question you should ask is, has IPIC demanded or sued 1MDB for any money owing to them? The answer is No. Why not? Obviously because 1MDB paid them. That's common sense. But if common sense is not good enough then look at IPIC's financial statements for any contradiction or consistency as the case may be.

Let me tell you why your claim that 1MDB did not pay IPIC's Aabar is wild, baseless and illogical. Let's see the evidence and then apply logic and common sense. For evidence look at the interim accounts of IPIC for the period ended 30/6/2015. In the accounts (Note 22 page 30) I'll paraphrase into layman terms that it says (i) IPIC gave up the options (ii) IPIC paid 1MDB US$1 billion to settle the US$975m loan and other liabilites (iii) IPIC took over 1MDB's US$3.5b loans, and (iv) IPIC waived other debt owed by 1MDB to them. Now let's use logic and common sense: If 1MDB had paid someone else and not IPIC/Aabar, would IPIC have done all that? Think real hard before you answer so that you answer sensibly.

- 1MDB announced that it made a 2nd and final RM1.1 billion redemption if the Caymans Island investment in January 2015. Initially, the Prime Minister told Parliament that the sum wes held in cash in BSI Bank, Singapore. However, two months later in May 2015, he inform Parliament that it was not cash but "assets". Subsequently, it was explained that these assets were "units" which meant that they were never redeemed in the first place. This proved that 1MDB and Prime Minister have ben consistently lying to the Malaysia public. It also means that the MONEY INVESTED IN PETROSAUDI which was reinvested in Caymans Island, are still missing and unaccounted for.

Firstly, saying "This proved that 1MDB and Prime Minister have ben consistently lying to the Malaysia public." is a pathetic and desperate conclusion on your part. The error was merely administrative and did not at all mean any money was missing. The BSI asset is a cash equivalent asset. Go pick up a set of financial statements of and you will see a line item in the Statement of Financial Position (Balance Sheet) called "Cash and cash equivalent". It was a minor, insignificant and inconsequential inaccurate description of the asset and nothing more. What you need to show is whether the BSI asset was worthless (see next paragraph below and also refer to my rebuttal on Allegation #2 and later Allegation #10 in the debate thread) or even a risky illiquid asset. I know you will not be able to but by all means give it a try for entertainment purposes.

Secondly, how on earth you conclude "It also means that the MONEY INVESTED IN PETROSAUDI which was reinvested in Caymans Island, are still missing and unaccounted for" is beyond me. If that were true, where did money come from to pay for the termination of IPIC/Aabar's options, working capital and interest payments? Make sure you answer that question. However, if you then want to claim the money came from the US$975m Deutsche loan then explain how they gave out the loan based on money/asset that is "still missing and unaccounted for" as collateral.

-I also wonder why the banker at Goldman who dealt with the 1MDB scandal leave office when investigations are ongoing in the US? *this is know the answer to, but you'll just have to wait another few months for the news to be out ;) *

I also wonder why and how it proves any allegation. If you have to wait a few months to know then I take it to mean you don't know. And if you don't know then you are just shooting in the dark trying to create a diversion. Conclusion: Let me know in a few months.

3) The lies & flip flopped excuses. -From "The money is not in the account" to "fine it is, but it's a donation" Btw i am being generous by skipping the ludicrous notion of it being used to fight ISIS (despite the money coming in BEFORE ISIS ever existed) and more funny funny stuff.

Show me proof of any statement from Najib that said "the money is not in the account". What I recall is that he said it was not for personal gain. Conclusion: You haven't done basic homework.

-Is it a donation then?

Yes. Otherwise state what you believe it is and substantiate your position with facts, not aimless questions.

-The Saudi Foreign Minister stated there was no record of such a gift by the Saudis. He suggested it was probably a Saudi investment. (NOTE- The Saudi led investments companies which were started for 1MDB linkes to Jho Low.....i wonder why?)

*Look at documentations and money trails by WSJ and NYT*

You forgot to mention the part where the Saudi minister said the AG was right to clear Najib of any wrongdoing. But let me understand this: you actually admit that he "suggested"? Well, you're right. He "suggested" because he is not privy to all the details of the donation. So how does that prove it wasn't a donation? Even if he "suggested" it was an investment, it may be because the US was also listening. Another reason could also be that to him, helping a Muslim government win elections is an investment obviously not in the quantitative sense but qualitatively in terms of the interest of the ummah. In any case, like I said, it was reported that the minister said the AG was right to clear Najib of any wrongdoing so you should also take that "suggestion" on board. Wait a minute…. do you then agree the money was indeed from Arab donors and not 1MDB, even if it was an "investment"? You are then contradicting yourself. Make up your mind. Conclusion: You tell me.

FINALLY, IF IT IS A DONATION, WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD DATUK SERI NAJIB RETURN THE REMAINING USD 620 MILLION?

I don't know why you put all that in CAPS as though you thought you had a slam dunk. We are not privy to the conditions of the donation. If it was for the election and not all of the money was used by the time the election was over and won, then the money should indeed be returned and you should be praising PM for his honesty. If it was not a donation then what was it? If you are implying the money was not from Arab donors then why mention that the Saudi minister "suggested" that the money was for "investment", meaning it was not from 1MDB? Like I said above, you are contradicting yourself. Conclusion: Again, you tell me.

SO yeah.

Enjoy the read.

It was a tiresome read because of the recycled questions and you totally avoided stating your position and giving arguments to the 11 allegations against 1MDB. It was even more tiresome replying. Nonetheless, now that I have humoured you, I expect you to respond to all of the allegations I listed down in the debate thread created specially for you. You have disappointed many people who have been waiting for the debate to commence so please don't make them wait any longer. Like I asked for earlier, at least immediately indicate for each allegation whether you believe it to be true or false - the argument can come later.

- AA -

P/S - Friends, if you detect what you believe to be a clear mistake, misinformation or an untruth in this post please let me know. I'll then consider and amend accordingly if need be. Thank you.

One day, Najib will be forgiven

If Najib leaves and someone else not in favour of the Opposition becomes the next prime minister, this same cycle will repeat again?

Karamjit Gill

Adolf Hitler who is undoubtedly the world's most hated dictator was responsible for mass destruction as he spread his ideology of Nazism. It has been more than fifty years since Hitler shot himself, but till today the Germans are ashamed of Hitler's antics. His book and flags are banned in Germany. It is not about politics. It is about his inhumane ideology.

However, politicians in Malaysia today have redefined the game of politics. Malaysia's most autocratic prime minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is forgiven and is a national hero. The word integrity does not exist in Malaysia.

PKR was formed on the basis of anti-Mahathirism, but today they are applauding the founder of Mahathirism.

Nurul Izzah Anwar who shed tears of agony for growing up without her father and losing her childhood has forgiven the man who stole it all from her. So, it was all about power after all isn't it?

For more than 30 years the Opposition attacked Mahathir and fought to free this country from Mahathirism, but is now working with the very same man they spat at. And it is only to supposedly save Malaysia from Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.

Therefore, if Najib leaves and someone else not in favour of the Opposition becomes the next prime minister, this same cycle will repeat again?

If Najib decides to go against the next prime minister as well, I can only imagine the Opposition shaking hands with Najib and say, "we forgive him". The declaration that has been signed to oust Najib is akin to the Opposition showing us the middle finger to everything we have been fighting for.

Mahathir destroyed Malaysia. Corruption, nepotism, racism, cronyism, killing of the judiciary independence, self-empowerment, disunity, and many more problems in the country today is Mahathir's doing. I always hoped one day our children would learn how evil Mahathir was during history lessons, but looks like Mahathir will only be applauded as a hero in the textbook because the 'big-hearted' Opposition has forgiven him.

Najib alleged corruption scandal is like a schoolboy in front of Mahathir. RM 2.6 billion is the reason to oust Najib? How is it okay that Mahathir robbed more than RM 100 billion from the country?

Going by Mahathir's theory of Najib being guilty because he did not sue the Wall- Street Journal (WSJ), Mahathir is guilty too because he did not sue the WSJ when they alleged Malaysia lost RM 100 billion under Mahathir's leadership.

Lim Kit Siang has admitted that he has nothing personal against Mahathir, and it was all about politics. It may be for you Lim, but it is not 'only about politics' for us. Tomorrow you will make up with Najib and sing the same song too and you expect us to buy into your absolute ridiculous reasoning? After all, Lim has proven the words of BN ministers that he has no integrity. He will form an alliance with anybody, even the devil for the sake of power.

I wonder how the late-Karpal would have reacted if he heard Lim's true revelations. At least Gobind Singh Deo has shown us that he is a man with integrity for not participating in the pack with Mahathir. It is time for Lim to leave DAP. Gobind should take over and lead DAP if DAP wants to move forward rightly.

Ibrahim Ali of Perkasa is also spearheading the declaration to oust Najib. Is Perkasa also a rightful organization now as they are working with the Opposition?

Tun Dr. Ling Liong SIk, Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib a.k.a Mat Taib, and the rest of the crooks are all forgiven because they conjoined to oust Najib.

Now, we all can rob the country, join the Opposition, and be forgiven as long as we go against the sitting prime minister. Bravo Pakatan!

Dr Mahathir jatuhkan imej diri sendiri

(Sinar Harian) SHAH ALAM – Tindakan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad mengheret bersama beberapa bekas pemimpin kerajaan termasuk Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin bersama untuk menjatuhkan pemimpin negara telah meruntuhkan imej beliau sebagai tokoh negara.

Menyifatkan ia dilakukan demi kepentingan politik peribadi, Pengerusi Gabungan NGO Melayu Malaysia, Datuk Jamal Md Yunos juga menggambarkan tindakan Dr Mahathir sebagai amaran awal terhadap perpecahan rakyat negara ini.

"Amat malang sekali apabila Mahathir gagal membuktikan kesemua tuduhan yang dilemparkan kepada (Perdana Menteri) Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

"Mahathir telah mencabuli sistem demokrasi negara malah merosakkan imej beliau sendiri," katanya menerusi kenyataan, hari ini.

Semalam Dr Mahathir duduk dan berdiri sama baris dengan barisan pembangkang pada sidang media Deklarasi Rakyat di Rumah Kelab Persatuan Alumni Universiti Malaya, di Kuala Lumpur.‎

Pada sidang media terbabit, Dr Mahathir memaklumkan yang deklarasi rakyat berkenaan adalah bagi mendesak Najib untuk melepas jawatannya melalui saluran aman dan mengikut undang-undang dibenarkan serta turut menyingkirkan semua pihak yang bersekongkol dengannya.

Selain itu, Dr Mahathir memaklumkan deklarasi tersebut juga turut mendesak pemansuhan semua undang-undang dan perjanjian baru yang jelas melanggar hak asasi dibawah Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan melemahkan polisi terpilih.

Najib: ‘Mungkin ada yang mudah lupa prinsip BN’

SHAH ALAM – Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak hari ini memaklumkan bahawa perikatan dan kesetiaan di kalangan ahli parlimen Barisan Nasional (BN) masih tetap kukuh walaupun dihimpit dengan pelbagai isu.

Menerusi kemas kini status di laman sosial Facebook peribadi milik beliau hari ini, Najib memuat naik gambar sekitar pertemuan bersama ahli Parlimen BN yang diadakan di Seri Perdana semalam.

Pertemuan tersebut adalah bagi mesyuarat 'Pra-Majlis' bersempena sesi Dewan Rakyat yang akan mula bersidang, esok.

"Mungkin ada yang mudah lupa akan prinsip perjuangan BN dan memilih bekerjasama dengan pembangkang untuk menentang kami baru-baru ini.

"Insya-ALLAH, kita akan terus melaksanakan tanggungjawab kami dalam BN yang diamanahkan oleh rakyat," tulisnya.

Kemas kini status berkenaan dipercayai merujuk kepada tindakan bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yang mengetuai kumpulan lebih 50 orang termasuk Lim Kit Siang daripada DAP dan Menteri Besar Selangor Datuk Mohamed Azmin Ali daripada PKR dalam memeterai deklarasi menyokong penyingkiran Najib sebagai perdana menteri.

Penandatanganan lain termasuk bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, bekas Menteri Besar Kedah, Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir dan bekas Presiden MCA, Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik.

RELEASING ANWAR NOT PART OF ANTI-NAJIB MOVEMENT, SAYS DR MAHATHIR

(TMI) – Releasing Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is not on the agenda of the new movement driven by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to remove Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from office, the retired leader said today.

"We are concerned about removing Najib," the former prime minister told reporters who asked if he would also support the campaign for Anwar's release, following the signing of the "Citizens Declaration" that includes a call for Najib's removal as prime minister.

Prominent human rights lawyer Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan had said during the press conference that releasing Anwar had to be part of the movement's declaration.

The PKR de facto leader has been serving jail time since February last year after the Federal Court upheld his conviction for a second sodomy charge.

He faced his first charge and was found guilty after being sacked as deputy prime minister by Dr Mahathir in 1998.

Anwar and the opposition have claimed that the charges against him were a conspiracy to end his political career.

“NO PROBLEM FOR DAP TO RULE THE COUNTRY, AS LONG AS IT’S NOT NAJIB” – MAHATHIR

(Malaysian Digest) – For a desperate man like former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, it no longer matters which political party takes over the country in the future as long as he can remove Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak from office.

Speaking to the media at the Universiti Malaya Alumni Association Club at the press conference held after he signed the 36-point Citizens' Declaration, the longest serving ex-premier admitted that he is willing to allow his one time arch nemesis, DAP, to replace the incumbent ruling party Barisan Nasional (BN).

"We want a clean election. It is the voters' right to vote for the Opposition. I can't stop any party from competing [in the election]," the 91-year-old said.

Asked if he would join the campaign to express his support towards jailed Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, he remarked, "I'm not campaigning with or for UMNO, I am campaigning for the citizens of this country to remove Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak."

The principles which Tun M holds now are in stark contrast for what he stood for when he helmed the country between 1981 and 2003, which sees him now in desperate partnership with DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang in a bid to unseat UMNO and BN.

Dr Mahathir can only accept his son Mukhriz as the new PM

But Dr Mahathir hopes his son can still make it. While he says he wants Najib ousted, he refuses to say who he wants as the new Prime Minster once Najib is ousted. He only says he does not want Najib as the Prime Minister any longer and does not agree to Anwar taking over. Maybe Dr Mahathir should declare that he wants Mukhriz to replace Najib so that we can all know the real endgame and can tailor the game plan accordingly.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

Raja Petra Kamarudin

Mukhriz says wants to be Umno VP before party's possible defeat at next GE

(The Malaysian Insider, 7 October 2013)  Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir wants to win the Umno vice-presidency at the October 19 polls before the party loses power after the 14th general election due in five years. The Kedah Menteri Besar, among five others vying for the three vice-president posts in Umno, feels the Malay party is running out of time, based on the results of the last two general elections.

"If my decision to contest is too late, who knows, at the coming general election we might lose power. Umno is running out of time. We saw what happened in the 12th and 13th general elections, so what will the results of the 14th general election be?"

"If we are still not anxious and want to wait for the next 10 or 15 years, we will face the repercussions," he told The Malaysian Insider on the sideline of a meet-the-candidates session at the Putra World Trade Centre (PTWC) in Kuala Lumpur recently.

**************************************************

Mukhriz lost but feels 'blessed'

(Bernama, 20 October 2013) – Despite losing his bid to be one of Umno vice presidents, Mukhriz Mahathir has pledged to continue contributing towards the transformation of the party. Mukhriz, who is Kedah Menteri Besar, said he could still contribute in his capacity as the state Umno liaison committee chairman.

"I don't think that with the results I'm suddenly totally out of the picture. It's my hope that party president (Najib Tun Razak) will still consider giving me a place in the Umno supreme council so that I too can contribute towards ensuring we can do better in the 14th general election," he told reporters at the Putra World Trade Centre here last night.

Mukhriz failed to clinch the third vice-presidency slot in a keenly fought battle against Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, garnering 91 votes against the latter's 100 when the official results were announced at about 1.40 am today.

The outcome saw incumbents Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Mohd Shafie Apdal and Hishammuddin retain their vice-presidency for the 2013-2016 term.

**************************************************

Whoever thought we would see the day when DAP would emerge as the new Kingmaker for Umno. DAP is going to determine who becomes Umno's President and in the same process the Prime Minister of Malaysia. And that was basically what happened on the afternoon of Friday, 4th March 2016 when the 58 ANC (Anti-Najib Campaign) activists met to officially launch the second phase of the effort to oust Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak after the epic failure of the first phase that dragged on for a year but ended up nowhere.

Anyway, different people expected different things to come out of Friday's launch of phase two of the campaign to oust Najib. While all may have been united about one thing — that Najib has to be ousted before the next general election expected in 2018 — that was the only thing they could agree on. As to what happens thereafter is left 'open'.

I suppose they will have to proceed from thereon on an 'agree to disagree' basis because they disagree on almost everything other than that Najib should be ousted.

For example, Ambiga wants Anwar Ibrahim to take over as Prime Minister if and when they oust Najib. How that is going to happen was not explained and whether all the others share that same aspiration was also not clarified.

Anwar will be out of jail in 2020. But then he cannot contest any election until after 2025. The next general election will be in 2018 and the one following that would most likely be in 2023. So Anwar cannot contest that general election but will have to wait till 2028. By then Anwar will be past 80.

Does Malaysia really want an 81-year old Prime Minister? By then Malaysia's population would be 36 million. Are you saying that out of 36 million Malaysians — more than 95% who will be below 80 years old — there is not a single person who can run the country? In fact, more than 88% of Malaysians are going to be below 50 so surely we can find someone below 50 to be the Prime Minister.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, however, does not want Anwar as the new Prime Minister if and when Najib is ousted. First of all, Anwar would have to be given a pardon and released from jail if we do not want to wait until 2028 when Anwar is past 80 before he can take over as Prime Minister. What will happen in the meantime during those 12 years while we wait for Anwar? is Malaysia going to have an Acting Prime Minister for the next 12 years?

If we want Anwar to take over now, as soon as Najib is ousted, then not only must he be given a pardon but someone would have to vacate his or her parliament seat so that a by-election can be held. Anwar would then have to contest this seat and win it. That may take two or three months (or longer). So in the meantime during those few months the country would have no Prime Minister.

Then we have the problem of Anwar being the leader of the party that holds the minority seats in parliament. So Anwar would have to buy over at least 30 or so Barisan Nasional Members of Parliament and get them to cross over. That could cost around RM1 billion depending on how much these Barisan Nasional Members of Parliament want. But since this exercise is to make Anwar the Prime Minister then the asking price is not going to be cheap. So Anwar would have to get ready RM1 billion in case.

The man who Dr Mahathir wants as the new Prime Minister is his son Mukhriz. And Dr Mahathir has to make sure this happens while he is still around. Once he is gone then Mukhriz's chances becomes even slimmer.

Dr Mahathir was hoping that Mukhriz would win the party contest and become one of the three Umno Vice Presidents — and he had hoped that Najib would help make this happen. He wanted Najib to make sure that Mukhriz wins. Najib, however, did not help Mukhriz win and this upset Dr Mahathir big time.

It was after that when Dr Mahathir decided to punish Najib for not helping his son. At least as one of the three Umno Vice Presidents Mukhriz's chances of becoming the Deputy Prime Minister and eventually the Prime Minister would be better.

So the ANC wants Mukhriz as Prime Minister. The Pakatuns, however, want Anwar. But before any of the two can be the Prime Minister they first need to be a Member of Parliament. As a non-Member of Parliament they would not qualify. How is that going to happen?

Anyway, we can understand Dr Mahathir's frustration and can appreciate why he is so angry with Najib. Because Najib refused to help Mukhriz that has shattered Dr Mahathir's dream for his son to become the new Prime Minister.

But Dr Mahathir hopes his son can still make it. While he says he wants Najib ousted, he refuses to say who he wants as the new Prime Minster once Najib is ousted. He only says he does not want Najib as the Prime Minister any longer and does not agree to Anwar taking over. Maybe Dr Mahathir should declare that he wants Mukhriz to replace Najib so that we can all know the real endgame and can tailor the game plan accordingly.

(Sinar Harian) KUALA LUMPUR - Tan Sri Muhyiddin ‎Yassin berkata, beliau masih ahli Umno meskipun jawatan beliau sebagai Timbalan Presiden Umno telah digantung pada Jumaat lalu.

Dr. Mahathir's resignation not shocking - PM Najib

(Bernama) – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's decision to quit Umno did not come as a surprise. He also said it would not divert Umno's focus from helping to drive national development and ensuring the wellbeing of the people.

"In Umno, we will proceed with our agenda because we still have much work to do. I hope we will focus on issues that we have to champion so that Umno will be much stronger in facing numerous challenges, particularly in our preparation for the next general election," he said.

Najib, who is also Umno president, was responding to reporters' questions on Dr Mahathir's resignation in Jeddah today.

Dr Mahathir announced on February 29 that he was quitting Umno, reportedly because he had become disillusioned with the party.

Dr Mahathir, the former prime minister and former Umno president, left the party for the first time on May 19, 2008, after reportedly losing confidence in the leadership of the then prime minister and party president, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

He rejoined Umno on April 4, 2009, when Najib assumed the leadership of the party and country.

Asked whether Dr Mahathir's quitting Umno would have implications on the party, Najib said: "Most probably not, because the impact is only felt when it is for the first time. When it is for the second time, many will feel that it will not have any impact that can jeopardise Umno's position."

MASALAH SOSIAL DI KALANGAN ORANG ISLAM


POHON AMBIL PERHATIAN

Fakta Kes

1. Mengikut Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN), Datuk Alwi Ibrahim (pada tahun 2008 ,sekarang KSU Kem.Dalam Negeri ), seramai 17,303 anak luar nikah Melayu atau tidak sah taraf didaftarkan di seluruh negara sepanjang tahun lalu. Bilangan itu meningkat 762 kes berbanding tahun sebelumnya. Pada 2008 seramai 16,541 anak luar nikah didaftarkan di JPN manakala pada 2007 seramai 16,100 orang.

2. 17,303 setahun anak luar nikah Melayu (Islam) dilahirkan di Malaysia pada tahun 2009. Ini bermakna 17,303/365 iaitu 47 kelahiran anak luar nikah Melayu (Islam) dilahirkan setiap hari di Malaysia pada tahun 2009 bersamaan 2 kelahiran anak luar nikah Melayu (Islam) dilahirkan setiap jam di Malaysia pada tahun 2009. Ini juga bermakna 47 kes zina yang menghasilkan kehamilan berlaku setiap hari di kalangan Melayu (Islam) pada tahun 2009.

3. Seandainya 47 kes zina ini mewakili 1% daripada kejadian sebenar maka 4700 kes zina di kalangan Melayu (Islam) berlaku setiap hari di Malaysia pada tahun 2009. Ini bermakna sebanyak 4700 pasangan lelaki perempuan melakukan hubungan seks haram setiap hari.

4. Berdasarkan kepada laporan rasmi, Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) melaporkan terdapat lebih 257,000 sijil kelahiran didaftarkan tanpa catatan nama bapa, sejak tahun 2000 hingga pada bulan Julai 2008.

5. Ini bermakna secara purata, 2,500 kes anak luar nikah direkodkan pada setiap bulan atau 83.3 kes pada setiap hari. Jika diunjurkan lagi, satu kes pendaftaran anak luar nikah berlaku dalam setiap 17 minit 17 saat.

6. Amat menyedihkan kerana menurut statistik pendaftaran kelahiran kelahiran anak luar nikah dalam tempoh 4 tahun sahaja

(1999-2003) 30,978 dari 70,430 (44%) orang bayi tidak sah taraf yang dilahirkan adalah anak orang Islam.

Pecahan mengikut negeri:
Selangor = 12,836 orang

Kuala Lumpur = 9,439 orang
Johor = 8,920 orang
Sabah = 8,435 orang
Negeri Sembilan = 4,108 orang

Kelantan = 1730 orang
Perlis = 691 orang
Sarawak = 617 orang
Terengganu = 574 orang
JUMLAH = 70,430 orang.

Moga Allah Permudahkan Segala Urusan Kita..

"Tapi dia menyertai politik hanya selepas saya tinggalkan politik," katanya ketika sidang media mengenai pengemuman keluar Umno di Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana hari ini.

Dalam sidang media tersebut, Dr Mahatir mengumumkan untuk meninggalkan Umno buat kali kedua selepas meninggalkan parti itu pada Mei 2008‎, bagaimanapun menyertai semula  pada tahun 2009.

Dr Mahathir dan isteri umum keluar Umno

PUTRAJAYA - Bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad hari ini mengumumkan meninggalkan parti Umno buat kali kedua.

T‎indakan itu dibuat sebagai tanda protes terhadap Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Dr Mahathir berkata, langkah itu diambil ‎kerana parti itu bukan lagi seperti Umno dahulu, ia sebaliknya hanyalah sebuah parti penyokong Najib.‎

"Saya tinggalkan Umno kerana ia kini adalah parti untuk melindungi Najib dari sebarang kesalahan yang dilakukannya.

"Saya tak boleh jadi ahli untuk parti sebegitu memandangkan Umno berjuang untuk menentang Malayan Union, mencapai kemerdekaan serta pembangunan Malaysia," katanya ketika sidang media di Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana, di sini, hari ini.

Dr Mahathir pernah meninggalkan parti keramat itu pada Mei 2008‎, bagaimanapun menyertai semula Umno pada tahun 2009.

Difahamkan, tindakannya meninggalkan parti pada waktu itu dibuat kerana kekecewaannya terhadap pucuk pimpinan parti tersebut.

Dalam pada itu, Dr Mahathir berkata, disebabkan oleh perubahan dalam strategi dan polisi bagi melindungi Najib, Umno tidak lagi berfungsi mengikut perjuangan asal parti itu.

Beliau berkata, negara kini sedang berdepan dengan hari-hari teruk dimana ekonomi negara semakin menurun.

"Penilaian terhadap ringgit negara semakin teruk malah pelaburan dalam dan luar negara juga turut terkesan.

"Selain itu, imej negara juga semakin terjejas disebabkan oleh ekonomi yang makin teruk," katanya lagi.Disamping itu, Dr Mahatir memaklumkan yang beliau juga tidak mempunyai perancangan untuk menubuhkan atau menyertai mana-mana parti lain selepas ini.

Dalam pada masa yang sama, Dr Mahathir turut memberitahu media bahawa isterinya, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah juga akan turut meninggalkan Umno selepas ini.

Pak Lah yakin Najib mampu corakkan negara

KUALA LUMPUR - Bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yakin Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak mampu menyambung kecemerlangan legasi kepimpinan bapanya Tun Abdul Razak Hussein dan dapat mencorakkan masa depan Malaysia yang memenuhi segala potensi.

Abdullah berkata, sejak Najib mengambil alih kepimpinan negara daripadanya pada 3 April 2009, banyak transformasi telah digarap untuk membawa Malaysia ke pentas yang lebih tinggi.

Menurutnya, transformasi itu bukan sekadar omongan kosong, tetapi telah dan sedang dilaksanakan dan mula mencapai kejayaan-kejayaan yang dibanggakan.

"Saya harap Datuk Seri Najib akan dapat memberi perhatian kepada perkara ini, agar bila negara menyambut 100 tahun pembentukannya, Malaysia kekal sebagai sebuah negara yang berpegang kepada prinsip demokrasi, Malaysia kekal sebagai sebuah negara dengan identiti yang utuh.

"Malaysia akan muncul sebagai sebuah negara yang mempunyai tenaga kerja mahir bagi mengisi permintaan ekonomi...Malaysia sebagai sebuah negara yang memenuhi segala potensinya," katanya semasa berucap melancarkan buku 'Najib Razak Berjiwa Besar: Empat Dekad Menongkah Arus Kepimpinan dan Politik (1976-Kini) di sini hari ini.

Turut hadir ke majlis itu isteri perdana menteri, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor serta beberapa menteri, timbalan menteri dan menteri besar.

"Saya sebagai seorang ayah, yakin dan percaya, bahawa jika Allahyarham Tun Razak masih ada bersama kita pada hari ini, beliau pasti cukup berbangga dengan apa yang telah dicapai oleh anak sulungnya dalam mengisi sebuah ruang cukup besar yang ditinggalkan beliau," kata Abdullah.

Abdullah berkata, Najib telah mengharungi pelbagai cabaran selepas 40 tahun perjalanannya dalam politik dan segala tindakan, perancangan dan kepimpinannya, bakal menjadi penentu kepada Malaysia dalam menuju 100 tahun kemerdekaannya.

Di akhir ucapannya Abdullah atau lebih mesra dengan panggilan Pak Lah turut memberikan nasihat kepada Najib: "Najib, terus berpegang dengan prinsip-prinsip bapa anda.  Anda telah melakukan yang terbaik buat Malaysia. Namun perlu sentiasa ingat perkara paling penting yang ditinggalkan seorang pemimpin adalah karakter.

"Kestabilan politik dan kejayaan ekonomi adalah penting namun ingat karakter- integriti, kejujuran dan empati. Itu yang mengingatkan saya kepada bapa anda dan bagaimana saya mahu anda juga diingati.

"Ambil ini sebagai nasihat daripada orang tua. Jadilah seorang pemimpin yang disayangi dan dihormati. Bukan yang ditakuti dan dipatuhi. Saya berdoa ke hadrat Allah anda akan dipandu ke jalan yang betul bagi masa depan negara kita yang tercinta."

Buku setebal 467 muka surat tulisan Prof Datuk Seri Dr Khairil Annas Jusoh dan Dr Sabri Mohamad Shariff menceritakan proses pendewasaan Najib dalam politik bermula 1976 hingga menjadi tokoh yang disegani pada hari ini. - Bernama
