The Petty Potato & yesterday’s news in pictures

Tan Keng Liang is the Gerakan Youth chief. He’s one of the very first to encounter Aunty Hannah doing her DAP SuperCyber Bully thing.

Oh well, haters like Hannah always gonna hate.

hannahyeoh-fat-gemuk mugHaters will hate potatoes
The feud between them goes back a long way. Previously Aunty Hannah called Keng Liang a “low class politician”.

She also thinks that the BN strategic communications director is another “low class BN MP!”

LIFE GOES ON…

The sun rose this morning, didn’t it?

Yesterday Najib merely followed Tun’s free advice given last month.

Pecat_Muhyiddin1

Muhyiddin should have resigned as a matter of principle if he did not condone 1MDB after having openly attacked the PM’s handling of the fund.

If Muhyiddin had lost confidence in his boss, then he ought to have done the honorable thing and recused himself from a cabinet where he was the second-most senior member.

In any case, he will now go quietly into the night. Do not expect him to launch any counter moves. He won’t.

Muhyiddin-Yassin1

On the notion of collective responsibility by the cabinet, Salleh Said Keruak blogged, “What do they discuss at the weekly Cabinet meetings, then, or do the Cabinet members just go to sleep?”

Salleh is the new Communications Minister. He’s a favourite Dapster target in the cyberworld.

I hope he won’t take no shit from those people and will not hesitate to borrow a leaf from PAS info chief Ustaz Tantawi ‘s playbook of using knees and elbows.

    I don’t think we have seen the end of Muhyiddin yet. Whilst he gracefully accepted himself being dropped from the Cabinet, he did say that he will continue to speak out on Najib and 1MDB.

    As for minachi, if she thinks that unelected “civil societies” can organise rallies to oust Najib, I wonder what she and the civil societies have been smoking, when three BERSIH rallies did not get them what they wanted from the Elections Commission and #Kita Lawan could only muster pathetic turnouts at the Saturday rallies to free Anwar, especially now that PAS which can draw the numbers is now out of the picture, unless they expect anti-Najib factions within UMNO to provide the numbers.

    Also, now that there is a new Attorney General, new DPM who also is the Home Minister and new Special Branch head I kind of feel that they will not be as lenient as before, not that I am a Najib fan but this is the new reality.

    If anyone is going to force Najib out, it will be forces within UMNO or a no confidence motion in parliament that can do it.

      Testing my gut instinct.

      There’s a lot of sound and fury now both by the opposition as well as Tun’s supporters but my feeling is that the real power of incumbency means that Najib will be successful in digging in and defending the fort.

      Trying to separate realpolitik from the rhetoric. Moving one level up in my political writing and maturity.

        Helen,

        I must say that Najib has preempted any move within UMNO’s rank to oust him.

        As for Muhyiddin, I believe he will remain graceful and “sabar” facing the predicament. No need to throw tantrum the way Anwar behaved once he was sacked.

        The worst will unfold before our eyes if Muhyiddin joins the useless Mohd Sabu in soon to be formed new political entity.

        But in all honesty, I believe Muhyidin realises he will total support from UMNO rank and file should he abandon UMNO

              The No 2 position will naturally bring support.

              My biggest concern is Muhyidin’s ability to remain graceful. So far, he is still calm.

              UMNO can not afford another sacked DPM throwing tantrum like a spoilt child.

              But I am relieve that Muhyidin is certainly no Anwar.

    I love the new cabinet and glad that Najib has gotten of the wooden ministers and those we did not support him.

    It is funny that a lot of Pakatoons who mocked, joked about and downright insulted Muhyiddin now calling him a hero. All the talk about being “Malay First” has been forgotten.

    The same thing has been said about AG Gani and I can recall how vicious the Pakatoons were on him for his role in Anwar’s sodomy case. Now they are tearing up and calling him a hero.

    I think finally Najib woke up from his slumber. Syed Keruak is the perfect candidate to be the Comm and MM Minister. He gonna wield the big stick at all those cyber bullies and nasties and terrorists who are running riot in the Malaysian cyberspace.

    Nur Jazlan too is not gonna put up with the nonsense of the Dapsters and their leaders.

    And with his DPM position, Zahid should show who is the boss to all those who are calling for street demo.

      Will the new A-G petition the ICJ to “reopen” the Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Putih case?

      Will he able to provide legal justification for tearing down the Malaysian part of the Causeway and replacing it with the “crooked (scenic) bridge”?

      Will he be able to renegotiate the water supply agreement with Singapore, as far as the legal issues are concerned?

      Will he able to advise the government how Clare Rewcastle-Brown can be extradited from the the UK to Malaysia?

      As far as facing down the “Dapsters” and the “evangelistas” are concerned – it would be nice to create “martyrs”, would it not?

      Christianity was built on martyrs anyway.

      And crackdowns on religion can be countered with sanctions….as some quarters in the West are itching to do.

      It depends on who carries the biggest stick, see?

      Not limited to Malaysia, of course!

        re: “Will the new A-G petition the ICJ to ‘reopen’ the Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Putih case?”

        What’s your obsession with S’pore? M’sia has already let this slide.

        re: “Will he able to provide legal justification for tearing down the Malaysian part of the Causeway and replacing it with the ‘crooked (scenic) bridge’?”

        Hullo. Najib is PM, not someone who is Tun’s proxy. The Half Bridge is not Najib’s idea or policy. You keep plucking non-issues out of the air.

        re: “Will he be able to renegotiate the water supply agreement with Singapore, as far as the legal issues are concerned?”

        The water agreement is legally binding and it’s not in the news here. Again your S’pore obsession is showing. Do you realise you’re talking to yourself on topics that nobody else is taking you up on? Buat menyemak jer.

        re: “Will he able to advise the government how Clare Rewcastle-Brown can be extradited from the the UK to Malaysia?”

        Pls clarify. Who from the gomen mentioned extradition? I remember coming across the news item but can’t pinpoint the official who said it. Or was it reported in TMI, in which case I’d take it with a bucket of salt.

        “obsession with S’pore? Those are your words, not mine.

        British PM David Cameron, on Lee Kuan Yew’s commitment to transparency and tackling corruption: “It was his commitment to tackling corruption that helped to give people confidence to invest in this incredible country. And it is no coincidence that Singapore’s climb to the top end of the global indices for anti-corruption and ease of doing business have gone hand-in-hand with its global success.” (Singapore Straits Times, July 29, 2015).

        President Joko Widodo: “As you know, two of my children went to school in Singapore. My family and I like Singapore. We respect Singapore. We admire Singapore.” (Singapore Straits Times, July 29, 2015).

              I’ve never denied Singapore’s achievements but S’pore is a compact metropolis with 3/4 Chinese population and it is secular.

              Malaysia is a sprawling landmass stretched across the South China Sea. We have less than 1/4 Chinese and we’re a Muslim country.

              The S’pore success you keep pushing in my Comment space may not be what the Malay-Muslim majority desire. Values and priorities are different.

              Why do you persist in sledgehammering a square peg into a round hole? Can’t you respect what Malaysians want for ourselves because generally I do not hear Malays – with the exception of Zaid Ibrahim – sighing to emulate S’pore?

                Exactly right – what do Malaysians want for themselves?

                By “Malaysians”, I assume you are not referring to any particular ethnic group or race, are you, but to “all Malaysians”? With the same values and objectives?

                And then you zoom to “Malays” not wanting “to emulate Singapore”. So much for “Malaysians” and “all Malaysians”. Which also exposes your worldview.

                Of course, we wouldn’t want to refer to “economic migrant” Malaysians who work in Singapore. Including a fair number of Malaysian Malays. Because that would be irrelevant as there is nothing wrong with people wanting to earn a living and support their families.

                And what “values and priorities” are you writing about? Corruption-free? Good education? Meritocracy? Freedom of religion? Good governance? A government “of the people, by the people and for the people”?

                Let’s be specific here.

                  Those who arrogate the garland “Malaysian Firster” to themselves obviously wanna emulate S’pore. After all, the DAP was born from the loins of the PAP. Even their logos look quite alike.

                  However, the Malays don’t worship at the S’pore altar. And it is Umno that is controlling Putrajaya since MCA has been decimated to become a parti bangkai.

                  Umno represents the Malays. Hence, I do not see the kind of keenness in Umno comparable to the adulation you shower on S’pore.

    Before I make my comment, I would really appreciate it, I really mean it when I say it, that you should add a caption warning your readers that you’re going to include a picture of Hannah Yeoh. Her face, the pic, it’s a living abomination. For your readers’ health, both physical and mental, post a warning sign first. Thank you.

    Hannah Yeoh is a first class bully, no doubt about it. But a first class bully only in terms of bullying the weak and powerless. Up against people like you, she’s nothing. She can only pick on the weak and powerless because these people have no means to fight back. I doubt if she has the guts to respond to Tan Ken Liang. TKL is up for it, why else would we think otherwise ? But of course her Yeoppies, the suckers doing her bidding, the mindless worshipers of cult, they will respond on her behalf. Leon Lee, that f*** is one ‘fine’ example.

    Najib should have dismissed his deputy a long time ago, but better late than never. If you want to play solo, get lost. Politics is a team’s sport. Said is a favorite target of the Dapsters and I too hope he adopts a take no prisoners’ approach. You don’t play nice with these people. You take them head on. At least now Abdul Rahman Dahlan has company.

    Bersih calling for street demos ? This is a joke, a circus. Now that Pas is no longer in Pakatan, who’s going to do the work of mobilizing the Malays ? You expect the Chinese to take part in the demos and face the wrath of the men in uniform ? Forget it. Just forget it. The game is already up.

          It’s better than being paranoid bullies who sound off about race and religion and who have no qualms about denigrating those who don’t agree with their “mono whatever” worldview.

          And being “sneaky” is always portraying oneself as being the underdog being victimised by powerful lobbies who espouse other agendas, while “sneaking” in punches under the belt.

            (2) Those folks sound off and denigrate other religions upfront. You may not like them, and they may not like you but that’s life. We don’t have to like/love everybody.

            (3) On the other hand, the Quran explicitly warns against the love-love-love group – munafiqun whom butter won’t melt in their mouth and who feed the gullible an overdose of sugar. Muslims of course should pay heed to the injunctions in the Quran 2:120.

            (4) If an individual without the support of any institutional resources is not the underdog, then who is?

            If this said individual – who is being stalked 24/7 by creepy Christian and J-Star network powerful lobbies conducting an incessant smear campaign (you read Annie and Rocky, so I’d know) – is not the victim of harassment, then what is?

                  I doubt that God makes distinctions as to how He is addressed or worshipped.

                  Maybe those who claim to know the Heart and Mind of God believe otherwise.

              Rocky and Annie have deleted scores of harassment before they decided to ban.

              It also happens in SAA’s and a few other blogs I needn’t list. It’s a concerted smear campaign (especially when vicious lies are concocted), not a one-off snarky comment.

                I do not know if rockybru has banned or deleted criticism about you in your blog. I did a search and many snarky comments about you are still there.

                I did read that Annie removed the comments after you wailed about it. How ironic that a person who incessantly spews vitriol about a state assemblywoman lives in a glass house.

                  My comments about Hannah are grounded/with basis.

                  If I had in any way slandered her, she would have made a police report already. She’s ‘trigger happy’ in her threats and has already made several police reports against Malay bloggers and Facebookers.

                  As for Annie and Rocky, there is no reason for them to allow their blogs to be hijacked by creepy Christians carrying out a personal vicious vendetta against me, and especially when the comments are totally off-topic and outright lies to boot.

                  re: “So people make disparaging comments about you in response to an article… about you, aside from one-off comments. That is your evidence of a so-called organised smear campaign??”

                  A smear is spreading fitnah. Since what they say are lies, then it’s obviously a smear campaign. I’ve already given an example of their viciousness, e.g. what they did to Chew Mei Fun in the Kajang by-election campaign.

                  The lies they’ve spread about me has damaged relationships and hurt my personal friendships. The people capable of doing such a thing are bangsat. They’ve fabricated lies as vicious as they ones they concocted about Chew Mei Fun, Joceline Tan and others.

                  And the comments were entirely irrelevant to the subject matter where I’m not mentioned by the bloggers (Rocky, Annie, SAA, etc) at all. Annie is aware of the irrelevancy. If not, she would not have decided to ban the creepy Christian stalker from commenting about me.

    hi kak helen,
    normally you will come with charts and graphs. what about number of BN’s MPs in Johor and Kedah? Can they swing to give surprise to AhJibgor? Sorry about my English…thx

      They won’t. Not many Johoreans are unhappy. Azalina is happy. She’s MP Pengerang (Johor). Nur Jazlan is happy. He’s MP Pulai (Johor).

      Hisham, Shahrir, etc are holding steady.

      The talk of ‘no confidence’ vote is dakyah pembangkang je. On 16 Sept 2009, Anwar and Pakatan couldn’t swing the MPs either.

    And I agree with Kadir, that sackings of Muhyiddin and others will not going to make the 1MDB scandal disappears.

      I tell you LKS was the happiest man yesterday. He was happy, happy, happy rallying up his troops and supporters, kind of striking while the iron is hot.

      While I hope that Najib will be removed, yesterday he made his do or die move to gather his supporters around him. I believe the only thing that will bring him down is if found criminally at fault on the 1MDB issue, not just incompetent or negligent but there must be a criminal element that can bring charges against him, OR if for some other reason he steps down.

      LKS, Ambiga taking advantage of yesterday’s announcement may get some people excited but for most of the non-urban Malays, it’s a signal to close ranks and if they have to support Najib, so be it.

      But I still want a new PM. This one is seriously tarnished.

        Exactly! I have 2018 in mind, and “over my dead body” the DAP’s creepy Ch******ns are gonna occupy Putrajaya. So I guess with that end game in mind, we might just have to bite the bullet come what may.

        “I tell you LKS was the happiest man yesterday. He was happy, happy, happy rallying up his troops and supporters, kind of striking while the iron is hot”

        He is happy but I don’t think he is on the way to become DPM. With all the events happening, LKS thinks it is quite easy to jentik the Malays since UMNO is weak. I predict PAS will insist all the GHB keluar party and there will be a many bi-elections. GHB will kalah teruk and either PAS or UMNO will take the reigns.GHB perhaps will do well in certain parts of Selangor but the Malay motherland will sure to reject them.

        With the “extremely warm” welcome LKS and Evengelistas had in Johor, DAP would not have much support in Johor except perhaps in the Chinese areas.

        Areas with 50/50 Malay support would certainly see more UMNO or PAS wins. I don’t think PKR will do well except for Anwar fan areas. GHB would not get much support.

        As for MCA, I don’t see any hope for them. The Chinese would go for DAP and the Malays will see them as a “duri” – judging all the recent memandai-mandai MCA answering in DAP fashion. Their comments on hudud will certainly bring no favour among the Malays to MCA. Gerakan perhaps will do better and MIC status quo.

        In Sabah and Sarawak, I don’t think the Christian Bumis will support Pakatan 2.0. In fact I know of a few Chinese Bumi leaders who are so pissed off with Semenanjung politicians for hijacking their “Allah”. Don’t expect GHB or PKR to do well them. DAP again would be in Chinese areas.

          The YBs need not vacate their seats. The DUN and Parliament seats ‘belong’ to the candidate, and not to his party.

          DAP’s Jelapang Adun Hee Yit Fong and three of her PKR colleagues quit their parties and became BN-friendly independents in Perak. Their switch paved the way for BN to take over the Pakatan state government.

          There was nothing the DAP or PKR could do then to recover those DUN seats and prevent the Nizar administration from being toppled. So from the Perak experience, we know that seats are considered as being personal to holder and not to his party.

    Zahid was appointed Minister of Defence in April 2009 and was appointed as Minister of Home Affairs in 2013 and I had been following him since. I feel very secured with his appointment, Alhamdulillah.

    And Salleh. He grew up in the world of politics. Darah dan semangat perjuangan Bajau lain ya. His late father’s home was like ‘rumah rakyat’ sentiasa terbuka for his people. We don’t see these practices with other politicians.

    Semangat perjuangan Anwar, Azizah, LKS, LEG and Ambiga are nowhere near and definitely they are no match to him.

        Imagine if Najib were to drop dead for whatever reason (ajal di tangan Tuhan) or did another Nixon-resignation thing, it would be awkward that a non-Vice President of UMNO would be PM of the country.

        Zahid as PM? Helen is now feeling uneasy, eh?

        I think the opposition party goons are also unsure how to react. Life will be difficult for them should Najib is replaced by Zahid.

        But will Muhyiddin allow Zahid to be PM, then? He is Timbalan Presiden UMNO, you!

        Now things are getting really muddled.

          So Najib can hold the uneasy non-Malays to ransom – you oust me, Zahid will become PM :D

          re: About the Umno hierarchy translating into PM & DPM posts

          Tun Hussein Onn picked Dr Mahathir to become his deputy over two Umno vice-presidents Ghafar Baba and Tengku Razaleigh who both had who had higher votes than Dr M.

              DPM was Hussein Onn.

              Tun Razak died in office (the only one of our PMs to do so). So Hussein Onn moved up, and one of the 3 Umno VPs was selected to become DMP.

            Nobody in PR camp loved loved loved him. MalaysiaKini try to sabotage him and fail and it is a known fact he disliked them.

            If he become a PM it’s a worse case scenarios now.

    The fickleness of politics. Or is that the hypocrisy of politics. Suddenly Muhyiddin and Ghani have supporters in DAP and PKR.

    Removing your deputy from your team is the right thing to do if he screws you. It happens in big corporations and small companies. The question remains if he (Najib) is able to stem the tide of negative perceptions of him and his wife after the removal of those who have been unsupportive. Maybe a collective team might work out better for him.

    I just think he carries far too much baggage and it might be better for BN to have a new leader if it is to be successful in GE14.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful for DAP and PKR if Mahatir came back? Maybe a street demo organised by the opposition might not be such a bad idea if it means putting Mahatir back in power through his proxy.

    Saya ucap tahniah kepada Ahmad Zahid Hamidi kerana dilantik sebagai TPM dan juga Menteri Dalam Negeri. Saya yakin sebagai TPM dan Menteri Dalam Negeri yang tegas dan amanah,, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi akan mengambil tindakan yang tidak berbelah bagi dan mendakwa mereka-mereka yang terlibat dalam kes penyelewengan wang dalam 1MDB tanpa mengira kedudukan orang yang terlibat, hatta terhadap PM sekali pun. Perkara ini tidak boleh bertolak ansur lagi.

    Saya juga yakin Ahmad Zahid Hamidi akan segera mendapat laporan dari IGP tentang 1MDB dan mendakwa mereka yang terlibat itu.

    Saya nampak Malaysia akan dipelihara oleh Allah dari masaalah besar 1MDB ini dengan memberi seorang PM yang baru iaitu Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
