    The frivolous one and his band of sycophants are chiding the chivalrous steward of the nation for his incisive examination into their humongous frivolity with the national treasury.

    Dr. Mahathir is full of bullshit. Dr. M ni bukannye ade financial background.

    1. “Any suggestions of wrongdoing in the online allegations about the partnership are simply false. All the capital invested by 1MDB has been returned — with profits,” an unnamed PetroSaudi spokesperson was quoted as saying in a statement released here Friday. – http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v8/bu/newsbusiness.php?id=1116632

    2. ARUL KANDA : Saya adalah orang Malaysia, lahir di Kuala Lumpur dan menghabiskan zaman kanak-kanak di Kelantan dan Sitiawan, Perak. Di UK juga, saya memeluk Islam pada 2004 sebelum mendirikan rumahtangga dengan isteri saya, seorang wanita Melayu, Shariza Mohd. Ashraf. – http://www.utusan.com.my/bisnes/korporat/1mdb-miliki-kredibiliti-teguh-8211-arul-1.59957

    3. “Tiada siapa mahu datang bertanya terus kepada kami, walaupun kami membuka pintu untuk memberi penerangan,’’ kata Presiden dan Pengarah Eksekutif Kumpulan 1MDB, Arul Kanda . Jho Low tiada kaitan dengan 1MDB dan saya tidak menjumpai sebarang dokumen yang mengaitkannya dengan syarikat ini. Malah, dakwaan yang mengatakan ayahnya atau kawannya menjadi pengarah di 1MDB juga tidak tepat. – http://www.utusan.com.my/rencana/1mdb-tamatkan-spekulasi-1.59530

    4. There will not be any systemic threat to Malaysia’s banking system even if 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) defaults on its loan as local banks’ exposure to the state wealth fund is collateralised, said Moody’s Investors Service. – http://1mdb.com.my/news-coverage/1mdb-unlikely-to-pose-systemic-risks

    5. Nur Jazlan, “In 1MDB’s case, a reputable international auditing firm has done that and cleared it. So what are we going to produce as a basis to call up 1MDB and do our investigation?” – http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/no-basis-to-audit-1mdb-again-pac-chief-says

      re: “Dr. M ni bukannye ade financial background.”

      Dr M tackled the Asian “financial crisis” in 1998, and even a Nobel Prize-winning economist like Joseph Stiglitz (with the benefit of hindsight) said that Tun’s unorthodox prescription was correct. Another Nobel-winning economist Paul Krugman analysed Dr M’s methods @ Slate magazine, 14 Aug 1998.

      On the other hand, what banking qualification/experience does Najib have to commit billions of ringgit to 1MDB?

      re: “Any suggestions of wrongdoing in the online allegations about the partnership are simply false.”

      Plain denial. Come up with a more satisfactory explanation, boleh?

      re: “saya memeluk Islam pada 2004 sebelum mendirikan rumahtangga dengan isteri saya, seorang wanita Melayu, Shariza Mohd. Ashraf.”

      What has Arul Kanda’s religion got to do with his professional credibility as a banker?

      re: “Tiada siapa mahu datang bertanya terus kepada kami, walaupun kami membuka pintu untuk memberi penerangan,’’ kata Presiden dan Pengarah Eksekutif Kumpulan 1MDB, Arul Kanda.”

      Why wait for people to approach him? He can issue a press statement if he wants to provide an explanation.

      re: “Jho Low tiada kaitan dengan 1MDB dan saya tidak menjumpai sebarang dokumen yang mengaitkannya dengan syarikat ini. Malah, dakwaan yang mengatakan ayahnya atau kawannya menjadi pengarah di 1MDB juga tidak tepat.”

      Kawan ayahnya yang menjadi pengarah, ikut khabar.

      re: “There will not be any systemic threat to Malaysia’s banking system even if 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) defaults on its loan as local banks’ exposure to the state wealth fund is collateralised, said Moody’s Investors Service.”

      So, 1MDB is defaulting on its loan – but no worries? IMDB acquires state land at fire sale prices, revalues upwards the land worth and uses as collateral – but Malaysians are not supposed to be concerned?

      re: “In 1MDB’s case, a reputable international auditing firm has done that and cleared it.”

      So where’s the money now?

        That’s not formal qualified financial background whilst Najib indeed has Degree In Economic from Nottingham Uni.

        re: Plain denial. Come up with a more satisfactory explanation, boleh?

        PetroSaudi is direct shareholder and stakeholder in 1MDB. Why do you think they wanted to invest in 1MDB if it got problem?

        re: What has Arul Kanda’s religion got to do with his professional credibility as a banker?

        Sentiment of Bumiputra’s company to invest in 1MDB will be positive. Please learn basic economy.

        re: Why wait for people to approach him? He can issue a press statement if he wants to provide an explanation.

        What does Arul has to explain if there was no major problem? Should he make a PC just because Rafizi Jambu menyalak mcm anjing? Who the hell is Rafizi in 1MDB?

        re: Kawan ayahnya yang menjadi pengarah, ikut khabar.

        Are you accusing Arul as a liar?

        re: So, 1MDB is defaulting on its loan – but no worries? IMDB acquires state land at fire sale prices, revalues upwards the land worth and uses as collateral – but Malaysians are not supposed to be concerned?

        Malaysian should concern if the 1MDB was default. But is the 1MDB really really default?

        re: So where’s the money now?

        What money? Do u know how investment works? Do u even know what investment really means? Please learn some basic economy and financial.

          re: “That’s not formal qualified financial background whilst Najib indeed has Degree In Economic from Nottingham Uni.”

          Well, despite Tun’s lack of formal qualifications, he managed to pull our country through the 1998 crisis and was commended by a Nobel Prize-winning economist no less.

          As for Najib’s Degree in Economic from Nottingham Uni, err, he got graduate, ah? Boleh tengok convo photo?

          re: “Why do you think they wanted to invest in 1MDB if it got problem?”

          I thought it was the other way around and that it was 1MDB that “invested” in PetroSaudi?

          re: “Sentiment of Bumiputra’s company to invest in 1MDB will be positive. Please learn basic economy.”

          Oh I see. So now the religion professed by the company CEO is a feature of “basic economy” that we must learn. Do the Economic faculties of universities elsewhere in the world teach this in Economics 101?

          re: “What does Arul has to explain if there was no major problem?”

          Okay, no problemo. Fine and dandy. Why do you even need to come here (to my blog) then? :)

          re: “Should he make a PC just because Rafizi Jambu menyalak mcm anjing? Who the hell is Rafizi in 1MDB?”

          No need. Just continue to mosey along as you’ve been doing.

          re: “Are you accusing Arul as a liar?”

          Tsk, tsk, tsk. So unprofessional and lacking composure carrying out in your corporate relations. Let’s see, Arul said “dakwaan yang mengatakan ayahnya atau kawannya menjadi pengarah di 1MDB juga tidak tepat”.

          So Arul is denying that Jho Low’s father is a director. Arul also denied that Jho Low’s friend is a director. In short, the director is not (a) Jho Low’s father and not (b) Jho Low’s friend.

          The reports said that the director is (c) Jho Low’s father’s friend. There’s a difference between (c) and (a) & (b). Like this also you’re not able to compute.

          re: “Malaysian should concern if the 1MDB was default. But is the 1MDB really really default?”

          Tun suspects that 1MDB borrowed RM2 billion from a billionaire tycoon to stave off the impending default. And now the latest report is that the Cabinet has approved a huge loan. As long as 1MDB can find lenders, then I guess 1MDB (not yet) really really default. How long can 1MDB keep borrowing, you reckon?

          re: “What money? Do u know how investment works? Do u even know what investment really means? Please learn some basic economy and financial.”

          Well, if the 1MDB people know so much about “economy and financial”, then they’ve got absolutely nothing to worry about, have they?

          wow, bukan main you ni, TDM pun you berani humiliate? Where were you during the 1997 financial crisis?

          ” Please learn some basic economy and financial ”

          Yah, you are the expert, so why not you tell us how 1MDB can assure and show the people how are they going to settle the 40+ billion hutang without dragging the country into the dogs?

          Also, for the first time in history, the government has to borrow money from individuals to settle partial of the 1MDB hutang. Is that not a terrible sign all is not well with 1MDB?

          You may be smart but I think common sense is missing in you.

      Dr M tak ade finanicial background? Which coconut shell you come out from?

      Just because he doesn’t have a PhD in Finance or an MBA, doesn’t mean he doesn’t know about financial management. He was the Finance Minister for quite sometime, you know. As the Finance Minister, he knows the ins and outs of public finance, the workings of Bank Negara and the commercial banks, funding processes for government and its agencies.

      I would rather err on the side of TDM and get some serious answers from 1MDB and the AG and the PAC, than be on the side of the PM, nodding at his excuses and then one day be shocked when big fat worms come out of the 1MDB can.

        One of the reasons I’m disillusioned with blogosphere, i.e. that some established bloggers can choose to be on the side of the PM in this 1MDB matter.

    It appears that Tun’s blog has been suspended/denied access after this posting. We all know whose dirty work to block the access to Tun’s blog and this reaffirms that there is huge mess in 1MDB and lot’s of cover up need to be done.

    There is a saying-“Siapa makan cili dia rasa pedas”. And it seems that Mr.Pee Emm is having sleepless nights now.

    Pada 11 mac utusan melaporkan duit 1 billion lebih di bawa balik dari pulau Cayman tetapi disimpan di Singapura .
    Pertama sekali dalam sejarah seorang PM Malaysia samada tidak mempercayai ataupun takut pada sebuah badan berkanun yang dengan gigih menjaga kepentingan kerajaan serta rakyat keseluruhannya ,apa kurang bank-bank di Malaysia ?
    Helen , saya orang kampong hanya lulusan SPM boleh terfikir betapa peliknya dan tidak masuk akal jawapan oleh DS Najib inikan pula Tun Mahathir .
    Teringat arwah bapa saya , jika kita menjadi ketua tidsk kira samada keluarga , masyarakat , di tempat kerja atau apa-apa pun .
    Bila ada krisis ( kecemasan ) dalam oganasasi beberapa perkara jangan sesekali dilakukan antaranya .
    Kalaupun jawapan harus diberi , mestilah relevan dan boleh diterima kepada soalaan yg di tanya ataau pun lebih teruk lagi cakap tak tahu,
    Seorang ketua kalau tak tahu (clueless) sekali pun harus berpura -pura dan nampak berkeyakinan kepada anak -anak buahnya akan kepemimpinanya , apa gunanya adanya penasihat ( bukan penasihat 20% kepada Sidiq Segaraga).
    Sebagai ketua juga ada benda yg tidak boleh dibertahu sewenang-wenangnya kepada orang bawahanya ,bukan apa untuk mengelak kurang yakin orang bawahan kepada kepemimpinannya .
    Selesai GE 13 , ada yg menyatakan masa di mana kerajaan ( DS Najib ) tahu segala – galanya telah berakhir (so true ).
    Jangan alih segala kesalahan kepada orang bawahan (classic case)
    yg dilakukan oleh bekas preseden MCA , walau dia tidak bersalah sekali pun kenyataan yg di buatnya semakin menampakan pepincangan serta kelemaham pentabiran serta dirinya .
    Macam arwah bapak , saya ini “old school “, jawapan yg ideal ialah “yes sir , no excuse sir and i take full responsibility sir ” .
    Ini pendapat saya saja .

    Dr. Mahathir Mohammed is not anyone or anyone’s fool. Censorship is not a practical or effective way of silencing anyone especially if that anyone is in the category of Dr. Mahathir Mohammed.

    Dr. Paul Krugman who I met in New York City at a Private dinner admitted that Dr. Mahathir’s methods in reining the financial crisis in Malaysia were (although) unorthodox) “highly effective and successful”. But why do we need Dr. Krugman t tell us that? The facts speak louder than words.

    Krugman’s comments were also published in a journal which I am unfortunately unable to cite on this point.

    The fact remains that whilst others sang a requiem for the Malaysian economy Dr. Mahathir set out to work, rolled up his sleeves and pulled rabbit after rabbit out of the ‘economic hat’ for the nation under his stewardship inspite of the US placing Anwar in his midst to disrupt it and hand it on a silver platter as another failed economy to the US and the World Bank.

    To censor someone as prominent and with the track record and following as Dr. Mahathir is, is to draw more attraction and scrutiny to what is being said (or in this case what is not being said).

    Censorship is a trigger and lightning rod for the type of precipitous conduct and public reaction the prime minister does not need or want at this stage of his political career. Such action compels people to look behind the censorship and to become inquisitive. Curiosity is not only a woman’s cause. It is our cause.

    Rumours and conspiracy theories have a habbit of shaping themselves into plausible truths in the face of censorship, inexplicable silence, partial, selective explanations of situations and the vacuum all of these create. Once we embark on that slippery slope of censorship, half truths and silence there is no turning back.

    Dr. Mahathir is a credible voice whether in opposition or in government. He is credible even when being neutral and saying nothing whilst being censored.

    The censoring of Che Det has set the political environment in Malaysia and abroad on fire. The PM may not have intended it. His advisors who advised him on this course have a lot to answer.

    The silence of Dr. Mahathir is deafening and people will ask the government to ‘turn it down a bit’.

    In the absence of a credible opposition in Malaysia, Dr. Mahathir remains the conscience of the nation. He cannot be ignored. He is never ignored and what he says must not be ignored.

    One does not have to agree with everything he says. But to ignore and censor him is folly especially at a time when uncertainty, instability and rumour is rife in the face of challenges which require candid, rational answers not forthcoming.

    Censoring Dr. Mahathir may be the poisoned chalice this government drinks out of. Somehow I know I am not imagining things when I hear the bells toll, that they toll for the PM.

    It looks like the drunken multi million consetan Paul Stalden had instructed the dungus at PMO to launch counter attack on 1MDB issue.

    “Our doors are always open”-okay then why not answers all the questions that being asked instead of publishing Arul’s resume here? Whoever he marries is not our business because we all want to know where is the money.

    PSI can issue any statement the hell i cares but no one is answering all those questions. Now the money is kept in Singapore. Did Jho Low had to deliver it recently so S’pore is safe because if it is in Malaysia, we will all know when and how much came in.

    Even Pee Em’s answer is half cooked-he did not mention how much is in SIngapore’s account. Could be RM 1, or RM 10 for that matter.

    Give Paul Stalden more whisky and bikini clad women so that he can come out with better “Tai Chi”.
