As of this writing, it appears that Democratic Party machines in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania are trying to steal the election.
As reporters and commentators went to bed early Tuesday morning, all three states were too close to call, but President Trump led former Vice President Joe Biden by comfortable margins—far beyond what had been predicted in the polls. None of the networks called these states because enough mail-in ballots remained uncounted that it could swing either way, but Trump’s position looked good.
Below are some graphs representing the results of an attitude survey of Malaysians.
The study was released to the press by CIMB in conjunction with May 13 today. Commissioned by Nazir Razak’s bank, it was conducted by three researchers from Oxford University – Dr Ananthi Al Ramiah, Prof. Miles Hewstone and Dr Ralf Wölfer.

Jonathan Smith (JS) wrote: “He would gladly tell anyone who would listen how those 13 May riots in 1969 had radicalised him. He would speak of how far-left revolutionaries inspired him – of how his heroes Herbert Marcuse, Frantz Fanon, Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara would teach him that the old social order must be overthrown.

The ‘MH’ code of Malaysia Airlines also stands for Malaysian Hospitality — or so an unlikely “moralist” (more about him later) reminds us although some China citizens, i.e. the kinfolk of the MH370 victims, may not be inclined to agree.
But the heated public debates are not about the “exemplary work” done by the MAS cabin crew or how undeserved MAS is of the twin tragedies. Or even about apportioning blame as if MAS were a rape victim unfairly faulted for being skimpily clad — the misplaced “rape” analogy provided by Jahabar Sadiq, The Malaysian Insider editor.
My objection to the objectors (Jahabar the Moral Censor refers here) of open debate is based on respecting the spirit of inquiry.
Antara lain, Dr Chua menyeru kepada anggota Red Bean Army supaya tidak mengeruhkan lagi suasana dengan mempolitikkan tragedi MH 370 secara melampau. “Ingatlah bahawa tindak tanduk mereka yang melampau ini boleh memberi kesempatan kepada golongan yang tidak bertanggungjawab bagi menimbulkan ketegangan dalam negara,” katanya.Continue reading “MCA tutup sebelah mata terhadap keganasan RBA”→
