And this is Johor
The BN stronghold and Umno fortress …
The fixed deposit of the ruling party …
The state that DAP wants to take over by the next election … muahahahaha
Take Johor for Jesus!
Interesting how 2008, the Year of Makkal Sakti, marked the intersect of Umno’s plummet and the opposition’s skyrocketing – see line graphs below.
Note: The opposition candidate for Pulai in 1999 was from Keadilan
Effect of the Chinese tsunami
In 2013 (GE13), Umno incumbent Nur Jazlan Mohamad retained his Pulai Parliament seat with an unimpressive majority of 3,226 votes. His constituency has a Chinese electorate of 41 percent.
In the previous election (2008/GE12), Nur Jazlan’s majority was 20,449. Before that in GE11 (2004), his majority was a whopping 34,926.
From 34,926 → 20,449 → 3,226 votes, Nur Jazlan’s majority has been in a free fall, reduced by more than ten-fold in less than 10 years.
The opposition, on the other hand, has been rising and rising. In Johor, mind you.
PAS candidate in Pulai, Nasir Wahab had garnered 7,480 votes in the 2004 elections. Contesting under the PAS banner in 2008, Abdullah Ideris managed a breakthrough 17,587 votes.
But came the last election of 2013 however, big gun PAS candidate Salahuddin Ayub collected a most impressive total of 40,525 votes. That’s a steep hike for his party and coming pretty close to Nur Jazlan’s tally.

What is happening in Johor?!
And another thing. Like in Gelang Patah, the ratio of Malay voters in Pulai has been steadily shrinking.
In the last election, Malays had dipped under 50 percent (47%) and for the first time no longer formed an absolute majority of the Pulai electorate.
Percentage of Malay voters in Pulai
- 1999: ↔ 58 percent
- 2004: ↓ 53 percent
- 2008: ↓ 51 percent
- 2013: ↓ 47 percent
Parliament seat in Johor
- 1999: Abdul Kadir Annuar (Umno) vs Ismail Awab (Keadilan)
- 2004: Nur Jazlan Mohamad (Umno) vs Nasir Wahab (PAS)
- 2008: Nur Jazlan Mohamad (Umno) vs Abdullah Ideris (PAS)
- 2013: Nur Jazlan Mohamad (Umno) vs Salahuddin Ayub (PAS)
Umno nepotism — Nur Jazlan was given his father Mohamad Rahmat’s seat to contest.
Effect of the Chinese tsunami, another sample
State seat in Johor under the Pulai Parliament ward
- 1999: Osman Sapian (Umno) vs Mohidin Yahya Shamsudin (PAS)
- 2004: Osman Sapian (Umno) vs Ibrahim Masran (PAS)
- 2008: Osman Sapian (Umno) vs Suhaizan Kaiat (PAS)
- 2013: Tengku Putra Haron Aminurrashid (Umno) vs Suhaizan Kaiat (PAS)
The same pattern as in Pulai – i.e. Umno sinking, opposition strengthening – is mirrored in Kempas.
ABOVE: “There shall be no retreat no surrender!”
Either you’re with us or against us
Adun of Kempas, Tengku Putra Haron Aminurrashid bin Tan Sri Tengku Hamid Jumat (below) is a patriot. Really. He’s founder of the Patriot Foundation.
Najib’s war cry of “No Retreat! No Surrender!” keeps ringing in the ears of YB Tengku Putra Jumat (TPJ).
He’s one Umno leader who believes that the recently concluded Umno general assembly reflected a closing of ranks while ending with “a show of force”.
TPJ said, “With only 2-½ years left on the clock, it is time we employed the George W Bush doctrine of ‘Either you’re with us or against us’.”
“No two ways about it.”
He also urged the Umno president, “Take no prisoners either, Sir!”
Let’s see you keep them, YB.

Thanks for the article.
As usual, you have facts and figures behind your political articles.
Given that PAS is almost guaranteed to work with UMNO in the future, those seats you mentioned above look like staying with UMNO in PRU14.
Google and Nasa are collaborating to put quantum computers to work in solving the most complex AI problems (“Why Google’s new quantum computer could launch an artificial intelligence arms race” – http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2015/12/10/why-googles-new-quantum-computer-could-launch-an-artificial-intelligence-arms-race/)
Good old-fashioned brainpower at Google.
Why talk about AI when loudmouth Jerusubangites don’t even possess simple common sense?
They thot they saw
puddy catsphantom voters in Subang Jaya at the polling centres.
But wait! Their Adun won with a majority of 28,069. With DAP having that kind of landslide in numbers, why would BN bother sending a busload or two of alleged ‘phantom voters’ to a sure-win DAP area. The purported phantoms would have been better sent to Bentong.
AI won’t help when the Dapster-evangelistas haven’t even got native intelligence.
Morality and Cognitive Science:
What do we know about how people make moral judgments? And what should moral philosophers do with this knowledge? This article addresses the cognitive science of moral judgment. It reviews important empirical findings and discusses how philosophers have reacted to them.
Several trends have dominated the cognitive science of morality in the early 21st century. One is a move away from strict opposition between biological and cultural explanations of morality’s origin, toward a hybrid account in which culture greatly modifies an underlying common biological core. Another is the fading of strictly rationalist accounts in favor of those that recognize an important role for unconscious or heuristic judgments. Along with this has come expanded interest in the psychology of reasoning errors within the moral domains. Another trend is the recognition that moral judgment interacts in complex ways with judgment in other domains; rather than being caused by judgments about intention or free will, moral judgment may partly influence them. Finally, new technology and neuroscientific techniques have led to novel discoveries about the functional organization of the moral brain and the roles that neurotransmitters play in moral judgment.
Philosophers have responded to these developments in a variety of ways. Some deny that the cognitive science of moral judgment has any relevance to philosophical reflection on how we ought to live our lives, or on what is morally right to do. One argument to this end follows the traditional is/ought distinction and insists that we cannot generate a moral ought from any psychological is. Another argument insists that the study of morality is autonomous from scientific inquiry, because moral deliberation is essentially first-personal and not subject to any third-personal empirical correction.
Other philosophers argue that the cognitive science of moral judgment may have significant revisionary consequences for our best moral theories. Some make an epistemic argument: if moral judgment aims at discovering moral truth, then psychological findings can expose when our judgments are unreliable, like faulty scientific instruments. Other philosophers focus on non-epistemic factors, such as the need for internal consistency within moral judgment, the importance of conscious reflection, or the centrality of intersubjective justification. Certain cognitive scientific findings might require a new approach to these features of morality.
A sense of balanced restraint is necessary when encountering technological optimism
Good old-fashioned brainpower should be used for the betterment of the human race and not for destruction. http://io9.gizmodo.com/leading-experts-sign-an-open-letter-calling-for-a-ban-o-1720367895
Geniuses like Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk are calling for a ban on AI weaponry. That’s good old-fashioned brainpower at work.
Ramai penyokohg UMNO ,berusha untuk menyelamatkan UMNO ,tetapi ahli UMNO mengatakan tidak ada yang tak kena dengan UMNO.
Siapa yang bermasaalah sebenarnya .
The problem with Najib is his intellectual shallowness. But this also true of the current batch Ummo leadership as they were born after the wars.
Thus they are not aware that beside fighting the british, the malays fought China who wanted to control malaya through Chin Peng, They did nnot know that the Chinese killed 20 000 Malays,police,army and civilians.
Bukit Kepong massCre by the Chinese are just film making to Najiib
but the reality was that it took the malays many lives to fight off China.
China territorial ambition had started back then but they were poor then.
What Malay nationalist should think of is how to reduce the security risk from Chin Peng cousins in DAP just like Donald Trump is concerned about Arabs in US.
Ah Jib Gor allowed greed and haughtiness to permeate his neural network to no good.
I Iove the way you sock it to them Helen. Me? Just don’t know how to do it.
As the song goes “…and one fine day you’re gonna make them understand…”.
Keep socking it to them.
