Najib, watch this: Mahathir mobbed in KL

Check this out. The reception Mahathir got at a function should give Najib something to think about, maybe even a few sleepless nights.

Now, I am no Mahathir fan. Like many others, I believe the rot – the concentration of power and rampant corruption – in this country began during his tenure. But credit to him for persistently highlight the 1MDB fiasco.

Still, I believe the wily Mahathir is riding on a wave of public discontent with the administration helmed by Najib, whose popularity is at an all-time low. (Memo to Wong Chun Wai: Media ‘public relations’ propaganda e.g. The Star’s fawning front-page interview with Najib yesterday, is not going to help.)

There is something else percolating beneath the surface, and it is not just due to 1MDB and all those scandals, GST and price hikes, though these may have hastened the premier’s plunging approval ratings.

More seriously for Umno, its traditional support base has cracked.

What has caused this fragmentation? Check out Francis Loh’s analysis in Aliran.

Tun Mahahtir : ” Sepatutnya Najib Razak DiSiasat Polis Bukannya Saya”

Very good speech by Dr M. Unfortunately the mainstream media did not report it. Noticed there was no mic from TV3, TV1 and Awani. So the rural Malays are deprived of the information. We should send the clip on WhatsApp to the kampung Malays.

MACC cannot reveal the identity of the individual who gave RM2.6 billion to Najib Razak, saying doing so would violate the MACC Act 2009.

MACC director of special operations, Datuk Bahri Mohamad Zin, said the anti-graft commission had no issue disclosing the details of the probe into the donation as well as SRC International if the laws were amended.

Media statement by DAP Johor Chairman Liew Chin Tong on 19th December 2015 in Johor: An UMNO – PAS coalition and its impact on all of us A coalition between UMNO and PAS is very likely to take shape following Prime Minister Najib Razak’s speech at UMNO General Assembly recently, as well as Najib and Hadi Awang’s joint appearance in pink Baju Melayu at the Regional Conference (Multaqa Serantau) for Al-Azhar Graduates yesterday. The UMNO-PAS merger is part of a series of “once-in-a-generation” political earthquakes, aftershocks and realignments in 2015 and beyond. On the one hand, in the aftermath of… Read more »

Former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin and former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad are planning to use a two-pronged strategy against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, according to a political insider.

The first part entails convincing the grassroots and the 30,000 branch chiefs to abandon the prime minister, said an Asia Sentinel report today.

This would include distributing books and pamphlets detailing corruption as well as holding ceramahs for the grassroots members.

The second part is more long-term – preparing for the party elections due to be held in 2018.

Malaysia Chronicles: POST AGM, NAJIB STILL BANKRUPT OF IDEAS, INTENT ONLY ON FIGHTING DR M, MUHYIDDIN The most glaring evidence and outcome of the recently-concluded UMNO annual general assembly was undoubtedly that the political party continues to cast a pall of gloom over the nation by its dark presence. If anything more can be gauged from this UMNO gathering, it is a certain fact that they are going down the wrong way. By harking on their hare-brained “Ketuanan Melayu” or Malay Supremacy ideology, UMNO has caused the silent majority of Malays to become ashamed and embarrassed. This is because the… Read more »

All feudal hegemonistic movement, inherently parasitic, has this project problem of eventual fragmentation. From Roman Empire, Mafias, Nazi, dictatorship. communism, they eventually falter and breakaway. But they do not die easy. KKK is a renmant of Nazi which got inspired by the Romans. But the radical Islam is the most efficient of them all and will be the most stubborn to defeat. Najib is playing Fire with Hadi’s PAS at the cost of our future. He is a many times loser in high stakes poker – just someone else pays for it – go ask Muhiyiddin and Shafie Apdal. e… Read more »

One Umno rep is asking for BR1M of RM500 per month at Umno Assembly.

Is she inspired by the Finland’s Basic Income Plan (800 Euros/ month)?

A picture speak a thousand words.
Go to this article and see the face of Mahathir and how he has been humilaited and tore apart
When Umno gave Najib a standing ovation only two people on stage did not stand up — Muhyiddin and Shafie. On the second standing ovation, Muhyiddin and Shafie had no choice but to also stand and join the applause. That is a fate worse than sacking from the party.

Najib self proclaimed to be a gentleman while muzzled Muhyiddin and later yelled madly that he shall not retreat and surrender.

Many analysts said Najib got support from the division Chiefs but not the grassroots of Umno. Perhaps the political donations are vaporized at the stem and could not trickle down to the roots?

Najib openly offered PAS a relationship (tali silaturrahim) and brother‎hood (ikatan ukhuwah) towards building a ‘perfect Malaysia’.

BN is thus not deemed perfect with MCA, MIC, PPP and Gerakan?
Is Umno ready to embrace hudud to be perfect?
