MH 17 HOW DOES THE WEST KNOW SO MUCH SO SOON?

WAS PUTIN THE INTENDED TARGET OF THE MISSILE ATTACK

Times of India one of many media organizations reports that there is speculation that Vladimir Putin’s aircraft may have been the intended target of the missile battery that brought down MH 17. Both planes are painted in similar colours and if visual contact was required to take out the target, the colours of a Malaysian Airlines aircraft are eerily and deceptively similar enough to look like Putin’s Illyushin IL 96 aircraft.

Whats interesting is that the Times of India once owned by Bennett Coleman is a very pro western paper with one of the largest if not the widest circulation of any publication in the English speaking world.

The claim or suggestion by the Times of India is no more a conspiracy theory than that being floated by US vice president Joe Biden and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott about what and how MH 17 met its end.

Perhaps the Air India pilots who flew within visual range of the ill fated MH 17 could shed some light on what occurred. They were only 25 Kms behind MH 17.

ANOTHER UKRAINIAN SHOOTING OF A CIVILIAN AIRLINER? LEST WE FORGET

The precedent for the shooting of Malaysian Airlines MH 17 in the Ukraine is the shooting down in 2001 of a Russian built Tupolev passenger jet a TU 154 by Ukrainian Armed Forces missile batteries on October 4, 2001.

In that crash 64 Siberian Air passengers and 12 crew on board the ill fated aircraft en route from Novosibirsk to Tel Aviv were killed when the plane was shot down over the Black Sea by a Ukrainian missile. No reason was cited for the shooting down of the plane except for the speculation that it was a military exercise gone wrong. The victims were mainly Jews.

There was an outpouring of grief and the Ukrainians were described as anti Semites by various Jewish groups following this event (and for their history of supporting Hitler and their documented careless disregard for human life in world war 2). It did not help that at the time of the crash their denials over the shooting down of a civilian airliner were equally careless as it is with the crash of MH 17.

More notably the Ukrainian armed forces then too offered speculative reasons as to what happened attempting to blame others for the shooting down of the Air Siberia TU 154.

DENIALS THEN AS THEY ARE NOW

It took a while for the Ukraine to admit that it had in fact shot down the aircraft. And that too after considerable pressure was brought to bear on the Ukrainian leadership by Russian investigators.

Ukraine’s then-president, Leonid Kuchma, eventually conceded that the Ukrainian military was responsible for the shooting down of the Russian passenger jet.

The day of the shoot-down of the aircraft occurred at a time the Ukrainian military was conducting a massive exercise which involved shooting down 23 missiles at drones.

“Experts say that the radar-guided S-200, among the farthest-flying and most capable anti aircraft missiles in the arsenal of former Soviet nations (at the time), simply locked onto the Russian airliner after it raced past the destroyed drone some 20 miles off the Crimean coast,” the New York Times’ Michael Wines reported then.

Then President of the Ukraine Leonid Kuchma accepted the resignation of his Minister of Defense, Oleksandr Kuzmuk, following the admission that the military was culpable.

From 2003 to 2005, Ukraine paid a total of $15.9 million to families of victims following a deal with the government of Israel.

Oddly enough the Ukrainians today rush to play what they say (without independent verification) that they intercepted radio conversation between Russian backed separatists discussing the shooting down of an aircraft at the same time MH 17 went down.

The west likewise keen to demonize the Russians and to take the heat off  the Ukraine on one side whilst conveniently taking the attention off Israel’s butchering of Palestinians by Israel’s military on the other is playing up that smokescreen of Ukrainian “evidence” that Pro Russian separatists brought the aircraft down.

If it indeed was a Russian mistake then how different a mistake would it be to that of the US shooting down an Iranian Air civilian passenger aircraft in the late 1980’s? In that particular instance, the US claimed its radar could not distinguish between civilian and military aircraft. How criminally convenient. But the west bought that excuse till the Pan Am disaster over Lockerbie believed to be revenge for the downing of the Iranian passenger jet. But the US un willing to test the resolve of the Iranians if they went toe to toe over that incident chose Libya instead to pin the tail on for Lockerbie.

THE MYTH OF THE AUDIO INTERCEPT

The latest from the “audio intercept” as the Ukrainians claim to have in their possession is one which requires very close scrutiny for what it does not say rather than for what it purports to.

The Russians have one of the most sophisticated field radio systems for communication in a battle zone which is designed to hop frequencies and to avoid detection.

The Russian made anti aircraft radio or wire guided missile batteries (BUK) which the Ukrainians and the Americans say brought down  MH 17 is in the military inventories of both nations.

The BUK (s 300 or its predecessor S 200) is a Russian designed and built anti aircraft system often marketed to client states via Belorussia and the state arms corporation Rosoboronexport. To “brother states” like the Ukraine it is sold directly. Most former Soviet states have these missiles in their inventories.

It seems that social media is attributing many absurd claims about the crash of MH 17 to a pro Russian military commander.  And the US and Australia appear to be lending credibility to these absurd comments each time they appear in the  press.

IT WAS ” (THE MUSLIM) COSSACKS” AND THE GRU- GOOD GUYS BAD GUYS

The rush to blame Russia and the Cossacks (the ethnic Muslim Russians who live in the Ukraine supporting Russia) in the “intercepted radio messages” is suspect.  Being Muslims they the Cossacks are an easy target of hatred worldwide. The apocryphal so called radio message “audio intercept” released by the Ukraine does not support Russian  (or any other trained army) protocols for communication on the battlefront in the field.

The Russians and their allies do not contact the GRU directly just as the filed operatives of US backed militia in Iraq, Afghanistan or other battle zones do not contact the CIA and its director directly to report an event. It is highly improbable and would be unprecedented if it did occur.

NEW IDEAS NEW TACTICS- NO SUCH THING AS AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER

There was no such radio intercept of the downing of the 3 other aircraft supposedly downed by Pro Russians separatists in the Ukraine. Suddenly all sides change tactics radically with the Pro Russian separatists speaking to the head of the GRU Igor Sergun and a Russian Major in the armed forces of the Russian Federation we are asked to believe by Holland and the US.

Then we have the paradigm shift in Ukrainian tactics of intercepting highly classified but uncoded open line communications between pro Russian separatists and Moscow.

What is tragic about this incident coming so close to the heels of the yet unsolved MH370 incident is that civilians are now more than ever coming to grips that there is no such thing as “innocent bystanders in a conflict”. That phrase coined by a Palestinian hijacker who hijacked a BOAC VC 10 aircraft in the early 1970’s told his passengers appears to have been prophetic indeed.

A LESSON FOR MAS AND THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT

It is time the government of Malaysia and its national Airline learned how to deal with the world and the western media by engaging professional media consultants regardless of their race colour class or creed when dealing with such disasters.

There is nothing wrong in an investment in quality, impressive public speakers (without the fake US accents) personnel, trained, knowledgeable  and savvy when dealing with the international media.

As it stands the prime ministers own ability to impress is impaired following the MH 370 incident. The then acting minister Hishamuddin Onn although not incompetent was short of what the media had expected. There is a special skill required to deal with a media organizations and agencies run by sensationalists ready and waiting to bait an ill prepared minister or other official in such situations. And that damage from not being prepared in such situations may be irreversible.

There is an art and a skill not present within the existing Malaysian media scrum. Neither is it present in Malaysia’s government apparatus capable of dealing with such a situation. And that’s a disaster in itself.

Government needs spokespersons who are skilled. People who are informed, with a legal background, international current affairs specialists who are forensic, articulate and possessed of people and crisis management skills sufficient for them to be able to interact amiably with the diverse and often hostile international media that throng to KL each time something like this occurs.

The Staccato Malaysian accent is horrible and for most of the time not understood. With punctuation and expressions all misplaced in what should otherwise be a short and sharp response is often dragged on, disabled by the accent, the diction, mispronounced words and inappropriate analogies.

It is best that Malaysia give the media a plausible explanation of events than for them to make up their own minds and lend their own interpretations in frustration from dealing with incompetent spokespersons.

Such a situation always ends up causing untold damage to a nation that has gained so much in a short time and has so much to lose in a shorter time by the poor handling of these events.

 

 

 

ANWAR THE END

ANWAR: A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS

The Malaysian opposition in politics is doomed to repeat the failures of its leading light Lim Kit Siang, the longest serving opposition leader anywhere in the world.  Being in opposition is all Lim it appears has achieved in his political lifetime. And that’s Lim’s legacy. It is now likely to be passed on like that proverbial poisoned chalice  to Anwar Ibrahim or anyone else who succeeds him in opposition.

Recent events and developments in the fortunes of  Parti Keadlian Rakyat (PKR) leader seems to suggest that Anwar may have already drunk out of that poisoned chalice of Lim’s.

The Malaysian government (if that’s who is behind  the timing of the Court of Appeal decision against Anwar: although there is no evidence to back up that proposition), could not have chosen a better time to destroy Anwar Ibrahim than now. With the reversal of his acquittal on the charge of sodomy in the High Court of Kuala Lumpur Anwar is now set to face a further test of his credibility as a person and as a politician. 

Yet there are those who will say that the Court of Appeal’s decision on the Sodomy charge against Anwar Ibrahim is politically motivated and timed. Lawyers are amongst these critics. And if it is indeed the case that the timing has been politically motivated then, why not? we ask.

Anwar is a politician with a history of playing dirty and outside of the Rule of Law and the rules of fairness and justice (The Fairuz Video for one).

For all intents and purposes Anwar’s ambitious play for the Kajang seat is over before it even began.  A political still birth. His political fate has been sealed with a criminal conviction and a jail sentence.

Anwar may now be barred from contesting the Kajang by election under Article 48 (e) of the Federal Constitution. Under that particular article of the Federal Constitution he is disqualified under the Constitution from holding office as a member of parliament.

The courts are not bound to stay the sentence imposed on him by the Court of Appeal pending a further appeal on his behalf. A stay of execution is not a right that accrues to Anwar but a discretion in the hands of the judges to exercise if they are persuaded to do so. And considering how the legal fraternity and Anwar have treated the courts in the recent past, they should not expect the good graces of the courts and judges who they have brought into disrepute to prevail. The courts are not inclined to show any mercy or tolerance for the man or his mission. It would be inimical to justice and the preservation of the reputation and integrity of the courts and its judges to do so.

An analysis of the law and a prelude to Anwar’s acquittal being quashed is to be found in our earlier article here from 201.

https://takemon.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/anwar-naked-but-free/

PARALYZED FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES

The US, especially presidential hopeful and big time Anwar supporter, Hillary Clinton and her president Obama are in a pickle in the Ukraine now.

Having backed a bloody coup there by the Nazi group Svoboda in the Ukraine ( a group not unlike what Bersih is to Malaysia), the US and Hillary are now faced with a reality they had not foreseen or calculated into the matrix of politics in that region. Those same failures appear to have manifested themselves in Egypt, Syria, Malaysia, Thailand and Libya.

These American funded “Springs” abroad are quickly turning into winters of discontent and rivers of blood everywhere. In light of whats happening in the Ukraine and with Putin’s fight back and local resistance, Anwar and his problems pale into insignificance and irrelevance as far as the west is concerned. Anwar and his mates (Ambiga included) are no priority for the west to deal with now.

The west have bigger fish to fry and their hands are getting burned in the process. Their media will throw a one liner on and off in the interests of hedging their bets on Anwar Ambiga and their minions. Anwar is a non entity. Ambiga is on a very slippery slope and a watch list.

WHO AND WHAT IS ANWAR?

Anwar is a man whose sole objective in his personal and political life has always been his ego and that of his family dynasty  interests (apart from demonizing Dr. Mahathir). And as long as that remains his creed and the main focus of his politics he will continue to be a target of his opponents, friends and foes alike. And as long as he treats the law and the courts with contempt, he can expect nothing better in return.

Anwar will continue to fall into traps he sets for others and in the process he will continue to shoot himself in what remains of his already shot out foot.

The fact of Anwar Ibrahim’s bi sexuality is legend from his days at Malay College. The fact he has been unable to shake off allegation after allegation against him in this regard is where his main problem lies. His supporters are in large part to blame for his problems. Its always been and always will be only about Anwar and his family versus Dr. Mahathir and not about his no show policies. And that’s been a fatal flaw for the opposition and Anwar in general.

Western Gay lobbies wanting to transplant their life styles and interests into the Malaysian socio political and cultural milieu stand tall amongst Anwars backers. The others who pursue personal and political interests of their own using him are the likes of Ambiga Sreenivasan  and the Kit Siang dynasty. Neither of the latter or former are any different to Anwar in many respects.

In previous articles on this blog we warned of these so called Anwar supporters. Anwar paid no heed to these warnings. Instead we were subjected to the invectives and threats by PKR supporters and followers .

Anwar should have learned to rely less on each of these so called ‘supporters,’ each of who has an agenda of their own whilst riding comfortably on his coat tails. There is no cohesion within the opposition. There never will be any as they represent disparate mainly personal interests which have no alignment with national priorities. And they never will win in their present form. That’s also because the opposition one hears of is not the only opposition to government in Malaysia. PKR are merely another set of loud mouths amongst many.

THE OPPOSITION AND ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COURTS

Each time the “opposition” to government in Malaysia receives a favourable judgment in the Malaysian courts, they refer to the judges who hand down those judgements as “Brave” “Great” and “Good”. Whenever an unfavourable judgment comes down on any of them or their activities however just that judgment may be, they attack the government in all its forms, the judiciary and the courts in the process.

Such conduct may be forgiveable (although it is not) when lay people attack the integrity of the courts and judges. However these attacks are often the work of lawyers and politicians. As lawyers these critics are officers of the courts, sworn to protect its integrity, to maintain and uphold its dignity at all times. They do not. That’s a dereliction of the duty of the Malaysian Bar Council and its members. And the buck ought to stop with them.

Back to Anwar Ibrahim and his present dilemma. Anwar may have thought he was running free. However he does run around like a desperate man with his past catching up behind him (if you will excuse the pun).

Anwar knew all along that the ghost of his Sodomy past ( and other sexual indiscretions) would come back to haunt him. The video images of Anwar in his tryst with an unnamed prostitute was merely the tip of a large moral iceberg. His wife and daughter as first family in waiting ought to have said or done something about it. They did not.

ANWAR THE MAN ?

Anwar has never been known for his discretion. Quite the opposite. He has an ego the size of Mount Everest. Where he has no stage he  is prone to creating one either by standing on the weaknesses of others or by creating a platform of cheap rhetoric and personal attacks on others he despises. Judges, the courts and parliament. This is because Anwar is a man with whom time has caught up and to whom his mortality is now a reality.

He looks gaunt, tired, frail and emaciated at the best of times. The reasons for this are best known to those close to him. Anwar does not like being attacked. He does not mind others being the target of his bile and vitriol though.

Anwar has nothing of an achievement in political terms to boast of as a politician or a leader. His promises of late (the last decade) have been remarkable for its failures to deliver. He has never given up an opportunity to miss out on an opportunity either.

ANWAR’S PROMISES OF A SECULAR DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT AND FAIR PLAY

The contradictions of Anwar and his PKR (his family) are best manifest in the recent matrimonial dispute between his daughter and her beau.

Whilst spitting out secularism and democracy from one side of the PKR mouth to frothing point, Nurull Izah chose the jurisdiction of the Syariah courts to launch her divorce proceedings against the prince she married. So much for support of secular promises by the PKR.

On another score, his wife and daughter both have an overriding obligation to their constituents and to the public they claim to serve, to have said something about Anwar’s sexuality and, at the very least to have said something about the state of their family. They are after all a first family in waiting and we have a right to know about them.

There is no privacy in public life for them to hide behind. As public figures their trademark has been to condemn and defame anyone who they disagree with. Yet Wan Azziza and Nurull have remained deafening silent on at least the video. What kind of first family does the country deserve?

In the view of the PKR Datin Rosmah, the family of former Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohammed is fair game but not the first family in waiting of Anwar, Wan Azziza and Nurul.

A year ago the country was in the grip of election fever. Anwar was so confident he would trounce the Barisan to snatch government from them and went around distributing victory speeches to select western media representatives, requesting an Australian journalist put the finishing touches to his draft.

It was not to be so and he cried foul losing the support of even those Gay journalists from abroad who crowd around the man often enough hoping he will be the crest of that tsunami sweeping the west in the advancement of Gay rights ‘uber alles’.

We reported from interviews with prominent Saudi Wahhabi clerics just prior to the elections last year 2013. Each of these clerics said Anwar categorically that Anwar was the forerunner to an Islamic state in Malaysia. And they blessed him.

A GOOD OPPOSITION IS NECESSARY BUT NOT THE PKR

Anwar is not being honest. He never was and never will be. There is and always will be need for an opposition whether that be in Malaysia, England, Japan or the USA. But an opposition for the sake of an opposition is a recipe for disaster as it is evident in Malaysia.

A weak and incompetent opposition like the PKR strengthens government and reduces its efficiency paving the way for weaknesses and yes corruption. But there is an opposition in Malaysia and it is not only the PKR or Chinese assemblies like the DAP.

The opposition we speak of does not take to the streets on Hillary Clinton and George Soros’s money or that of the National Endowment for Democracy. They are more into engagement and negotiation, proper political discourse and argument even if through blogging and writing.

The opposition we refer to are people who are proudly independent and can rely on their own intellect, intelligence and their ability to fight within a democratic parliamentary constitutional government. Their arguments based on merit, fact and not rumour. But they are not the stuff the pretend journalists of the alternative media are interested in. These are the silent achievers who do not have a finger in someone else’s pie.

A BAG OF HOT AIR

Anwar shifts his policies (what policies?) and his preferences, his position on any topic like the proverbial fly does from turd to turd. He has no policies other than the borrowed clichés from wherever it falls.

He moves from constituency to constituency and from electorate to electorate unnerving even some of his closest aides and advisors. And yes Bloomberg and other trash rags seeking world domination through street campaigns would love that.

Anwar has not once posited a single costed policy of his which could be identified as an alternative to what government can or already does not provide to the citizens of Malaysia. He instead boasts of a ‘one size fits all’ raft of promises which can never be achieved in the manner he says it could be.

SODOMY AN ACQUITTAL CAN BE APPEALED- BAD LEGAL ADVICE

In 2012 a court acquitted (not dismissed ) Anwar on a charge of sodomy against his wife’s driver. That acquittal if read closely, was a precursor to an appeal. That appeal has now resulted in a higher court setting aside or overturning that earlier acquittal. The reasons for the earlier court’s decision was flawed.

That decision was unsound and the reasoning for that acquittal was peppered with appealable content chapter and verse. Anwar allowed to speak from the dock let out a tirade then which was used to hang him recently. That was the fatal flaw of his over confident lawyer. He hid from an opportunity to be cross examined, his alibis (all 13 of them) having disappeared in the heat of the hearing.

Adding to this problem one might want to know why someone like Anwar, a moving target of the government as he claims he is, would continually find himself in hot water.

To find an answer to that question a cursory read of the application drafted by lawyers acting for the Catholic church in the Allah affair would hold a clue. Anwar was and continues to be represented by incompetence from amongst the Malaysian legal profession to compliment his own.

BAD LEGAL SKILLS HANG THE DEFENCE

The Church’s application is a prolix document which relegates to a small appendix at the end of their application, the questions they seek to have resolved by the court.

A copy of that 50 page document is supplied in PDF form at this site: http://www.loyarburok.com/2014/03/05/allah-submissions/

The document is preceded by what is meant to be a set of legal arguments. Much of what is in their pleadings in that document is not footnoted, has little reference to legal authorities or merit from a legal perspective. It is desultory and haphazardly cut and paste. It has little in the character of properly drafted set of pleadings by skilled lawyers.

This is what Anwar and the church are faced with as an opposition to government. And till they are able to correct those flaws in their strategies and their ranks they are doomed to wander in the proverbial political wilderness.

ANWAR A MAN WITH MANY DAGGERS STUCK IN HIS BACK

It was clear a long time back that Anwar would never be prime minister of Malaysia. At least not while he has his so called “allies” and “advisers” remain with him in the PKR.

There is not a single force within the opposition from Bersih, especially Bersih who has not made or sought to make a deal independent of Anwar during these past 3 years with the Najib government in office.

There is much evidence and documented evidence at that, that Bersih and the DAP have all acted in a conspiratorial manner to hasten Anwar Ibrahim’s demise politically.

There is much evidence that Berish’s leadership had indicated in private conversations that Anwar would never be PM. Yet the mule cart rolls on as the wheels fall off one by one and the mules die.

GUAN ENG FOR PM

DAP COMES OUT INTO THE OPEN

At last we here at this blog get to respond to Lim Guan Eng and his party the DAP in opposition. The DAP hope to be government after 5 May 2013 and are quite hopeful. They have now outlined their reasons as to why Malaysia “Deserves Better” and we accordingly respond to each of their statements in this regard.

The coloured responses below are ours in response to Lim Guan Eng’s “Open letter” being circulated by him in an intensive disinformation campaign on the eve of the 13th general elections via the internet by email.

GUAN ENG’S OPEN LETTER TO MALAYSIANS

Open Letter By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng To All Malaysian Voters

Following The Dissolution Of Parliament To Make Way For The 13th General Elections:

To All Malaysians Who Believe That Malaysia Deserves Better

As we count down towards this ground-breaking 13th General Election, you can play a significant role in changing the course of our country’s history. By simply daring to change, you bring a brighter future for a Malaysia free from fear, free from ignorance and free from corruption.

A great aspirational statement from Lim Guan Eng leader of the DAP party in opposition. It is what all decent and civilized people should aspire to.

 Malaysia Deserves Better!

This historic general election will be about the economy and which party has the correct policies, ideas, ideals and principles to make our livelihood better.

What is meant by our livelihood? Is there a collective livelihood? If so what is it Guan Eng?  More importantly what costed policies do the Pakatan and DAP have which would make Malaysia better off economically and displace the policies they call ‘corrupt’ which has brought Malaysia the prosperity of the past 4 decades?

So the Economist, the UN, the CIA’s economic unit and the British, Australian and Japanese are all wrong in their assumptions that Malaysia’s economy is ranked as one of the better managed and more stable in the world? Malaysia is a country that is and has been for some time now the envy of many European nations. Those European nations are now facing an irreversible economic decline and bankruptcy.

Those nations in decline include Britain (without the Great) and France both of who shamelessly support the DAP’s dirty Bersih campaigns by funding their sinister NGO’s. Is Guan Eng suggesting that Malaysia now follow the path and the bankrupt policies of Europe, a continent in decline?

Malaysia is caught in a middle-income trap. Many find it hard to believe that in 1966 Malaysia’s GDP per capita of USD350 was ahead of South Korea’s USD130. Almost fifty years later, Malaysia has improved to USD9,977 whilst South Korea jumped ahead of Malaysia to USD22,424.

The forces of economic convergence are powerful, but not omnipotent or invincible. Poorer countries often grow faster than richer ones. This is largely because imitation is less costly than innovation.

This assumption does not necessarily  conclude that every poor country of say 50 years ago has caught up, as a recent  study by the Economist  has shown . That study by the Economist plotted the income per capita (adjusted for purchasing power) of each of a group of poor countries relative to that of the USA in 1960 and in 2008. That same study was also featured in the World Bank’s China 2030 report.

If each of the countries in that study had caught up with the US, they would all be found to have been on parity at least with the USA . However the truth is this. Most countries in that study (except the USA) that were middle income in 1960 remained  in the middle income trap in 2008. The study took in at least 25 countries.

Only 13 of the countries in that study escaped this middle-income trap, becoming high-income economies in 2008.

One of these success stories in this study, was Greece. (The Economist). Now therein lies the wisdom of Guan Eng’s “escaping the middle income trap” theory.

Does Malaysia need to go down the path of Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ireland and Greece? If Guan Eng and Anwar get in Malaysia will.

We note Guan Eng studied economics at Monash University, a University whose vice chancellor was forced out of office in the 1990’s (Professor Robinson) for the offence of plagiarism..

Since March 2008, a 2-party system gives us both a choice but also make our choices count. Countries that were once less developed than us like South Korea and Taiwan have transformed into high-income economies while we remain stuck in the middle-income trap.

At least Malaysia has not regressed. It is not caught up in the poverty trap of the 1960’s when Guan Eng imagines Malaysia was a “wealthier state” than Korea and Taiwan. And that’s more significant an observation Guan Eng chooses to avoid recognition of.

Both South Korea and Taiwan have since the 1950’s been the recipient of large infusions of funds and aid from the USA. The reasons for this being in the case of Korea (south Korea) what you witness a revival of now. The threat of communist expansion from the North and China.

The threat of China in all its forms including Chinese enclaves in South East Asia has not abated. It is merely tolerated. Their economies are made up of different components as those of Malaysia’s. Taiwan’s budgets like that of Israel’s is heavily underwritten by the US. It is unable to singularly fund its own defence budget.

Why do people think the US is spending hundreds of billions of dollars setting up bases in the Philippines and Australia having jettisoned its age old ally Pakistan in favour of India for? is it to contain a Malay threat? No of course not. it is the Chinese all over again.And with the Guan Eng DAP mentality is it any wonder? There is a re alignment of world realities and the Chinese are not part of it.

Taiwan also was for a very long time was a pirate state that  did not conform to international law. It was not recognized by the world community and as a consequence it thrived by being a black market state with an authoritarian regime killing its political opponents. It profited from theft of intellectual property, piracy and counterfeiting goods. Penang too has for  along time under the Chinese been a haven for pirated and counterfeit goods. Is Guan Eng suggesting we continue down that path of “economic prosperity”?

Of course much has changed since the 1950’s and 1960’ which Guan Eng refuses to concede. His argument above in this regard is redundant because Malaysia did not have the luxury of playing against the rules like Taiwan did. Malaysia plays by the rules. It has always been a democracy. South Korea and Taiwan have only recently over the past decade or two embraced the concept of democratic government even so they struggle to come to grips with it.

Economics is not simply about making money. It is about making choices with the scarce resources we have. Malaysia has managed it well especially under the Barisan its allies the MCA and in particular Dr. Mahathir Mohammed,  a point you admit to in a very unsubtle way in your last claim here.

 In 1963, Malaysians were richer than the Koreans and Taiwanese, with a per capita income of 13.6% relative to US income, whereas Korea and Taiwan per capita incomes were both lower at 10.7% and 12.6% respectively. 50 years later today, Malaysia is way behind being only half as rich as Korea and Taiwan.

THE MYTH OF THE GUAN ENG’S  TAIWAN KOREA COMPARISON EXPLAINED

The gap is as Guan Eng correctly states in the above paragraph “relative”. Korea (south) was recovering from a long and devastating war that divided the nation in two. It could not in its wildest dreams have been rich by any standards then. Any prosperity it had and it has today will be squandered by its massive military budget as the current situations there demonstrates. 

Malaysia’s population has more than doubled since then. What about the populations of Taiwan and South Korea, are these considered in your relative comparisons? Taiwan reaped billions from making fake consumer goods under the protection of the US. The excuse being it was an anti communist against China. South Korea received billions in foreign AID  (mainly US military related).

The US would fudge any figure so as not to demonstrate the devastating effects of the war in these places. If it did the communists would have succeeded in their propaganda. Korea is still struggling. And it will so till the military and political problem with the North is resolved.

COMPARING APPLES WITH APPLES

The figures Guan Eng provide although not totally correct are not critical. But he must be prepared to explain them not in terms of 4 numbor eko types of calculations. The world was a different place in 1963. China and the former Soviet nations were not part of the international economy then. India and Africa, South America and certain other nations could not participate meaningfully in the international economy because they had only recently emerged from colonial domination and were finding their feet.

Demand for certain goods and services which give some countries an economic advantage over others did not exist then. Like electronics and computers.

Malaysia had lots of rubber and oil palm plantations then owned by the British till Dr. Mahathir encouraged Malaysian to take them over. Then rubber lost its value in the world market. Synthetics took over. The science was not there to foresee investments in alternatives. 

Being richer then meant having some running water and not having large chunks of the population running around naked and suffering malnutrition and going to a toilet that was not the bush.

Applying Guan Eng’s weak arguments one could say the New Zealanders are wealthier than the Saudis which is not altogether incorrect.

But what makes that difference? Are they two similar countries with similar political, cultural and physical characteristics, needs, resources and objectives?

Monash university economics degree with a Chinese slant to it at work here

There are 3 critical success factors namely a functioning democracy, fighting corruption and building human talents. Bad governments that fail to deliver are replaced through democratic elections by good governments resulting in progressive reforms and improvements. Corrupt leaders are replaced by those with integrity. And the country’s prosperity is underpinned by building and retraining human talent.

3 CRITICAL FACTORS CORRUPTION DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES AND HUMAN TALENTS EXPLAINED

THE MYTH OF DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT AND PROSPERITY

Singapore which you and your father and dare I say most DAPsters admire have not had democratic government for over 4 decades and they are doing incredibly well.

South Korea you mentioned like Taiwan only recently has embraced a limited form of democracy and look at the result. Would you live in South Korea today for all the tea in China? Neither Taiwan, China, the US or Korea can in any way demonstrate the absence of corruption in their midst. It matters a lot what you consider corruption.

Singaporeans have been voting with their feet for a long time now.38% of that island state’s citizens  have migrated to be replaced by immigrants from China, Taiwan, Korea (like Lorraine Han’s father-CNBC reporter), Indonesia, India and other countries. What’s your DAP idea of democracy and talent?

CORRUPTION AND PROSPERITY

Guan Eng is right. Corrupt leaders are eventually replaced with people of integrity. That’s why Malaysia got rid of Tengku Abdul Rahman and replaced him eventually with Dr. Mahathir. What do you term corruption? The Malaysian Bar or the DAP who excise Indians and Malays from its ranks?  That too is corruption. Corruption in its classic definition is moral turpitude and not affirmative action or graft.

Graft is the least form of corruption. The recipient of a bribe accepts a bribe often out of necessity. The giver like your many Chinese towkays corrupt the system by giving it, putting temptation in the way of the weak where merit then becomes a casualty of the bad government you create.

In Singapore the government’s sovereign fund Tamasek lost $65 Billion in the GFC between 2007-2009. That loss surely cannot be blamed on “corruption” could it? Why? because in Singapore it was the Chinese, which you Guan Eng and your father admire so much who were responsible for the bad investments made by Tamasek.

Were Malays or the Barisan government responsible for that financial disaster in Tamasek? Strangely Guan Eng omits any mention  of the failures of a government he and his father worship and often refer to as their role model for an alternative Malaysia.

TALENT AND TALENT BUILDING

What talents do the Americans who support you have other than the talents of migrants like our children (children of migrants themselves) contribute to there? At last count over 30% of NASA were of south Indian extraction. That position has changed. People move on as the does any economy.

You can try to build and retain good talent and the Barisan has done that including building the talents of Guan Eng, Anwar Ibrahim, Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Nurrul Anwar. Each of these people are recipients of Barisan programmes, the NEP for the Anwar family, and the breaking down of barriers so that as Malays they would not be discriminated by the others anymore. It worked.

In the 1960’s, the majority of Malays were peons, drivers, servants and lowly paid workers. Today they manage large corporations, are doctors, engineers, lawyers and other professionals which is something you in the DAP and the Chinese in general can’t stand to see. So you attribute their progress to corruption and the exit of migrant Chinese and Indians to bad government?

The greatest gift that a good government can bestow to our future generation is not cash handouts but knowledge, education, a just system with integrity and equal opportunity. Only then can we live with dignity and our young live better than us.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AFFIRMATIVE ACTION AND HAND OUTS AS GOOD ECONOMIC POLICY

Cash handouts certainly help. Scholarships to Malays (the majority) who were denied these before and immediately after independence have managed to bridge the gap with the NEP. There is more work to be done.

The Chinese like Guan Eng who go abroad from Malaysia certainly do not turn out to be unrecognized Einsteins. They too are recipients of cash handouts but their handouts come from foreigners wanting to destabilise Malaysia.

Affirmative action is alive and well in the US, Australia, India, China, New Zealand, the UK and elsewhere. There the people do not complain like the Chinese in Malaysia do.  They are civilized enough to understand its significance in addressing certain social and economic imbalances in society to create a more level playing field. It is called positive discrimination. But it is not like what you have in Singapore the DAP’s role model.

In Singapore  as an exception to the above rule, when the Indians and Malays began to do well and prove themselves through competition there, Lee Kuan Yew made Mandarin the unofficial national language to keep the non Chinese a step behind the Chinese. Keeping the NEP alive is not a luxury. It is a necessity.

Even India has adopted the “dole” of paying social security model to its below the bread line citizens. Cash handouts where it matters.

India’s runs into hundreds of millions of recipients. And guess what? They are doing well as a nation. Better than Greece, Spain, Italy Portugal and Ireland. Maybe not cleaner in appearance but certainly better economically and that’s what matters.

 Malaysia Deserves Better.

In contrast to these two countries, Malaysia is No.1 in the world in terms of illegal capital flight per capita, with a loss of RM 32,000 for every Malaysian, which is more than even China with a loss of RM6,400 per capita during the same period of time. No wonder then, that our national debt has doubled from RM267 billion in 2007 to over RM502 billion today, five years later.

THE HISTORY OF RECENT FLIGHT CAPITAL AS A WEAPON OF DESTABILIZATION

Much of the flight capital of south east Asia is from the  Chinese running away with their untaxed hoarding of foreign exchange and black money.

Singapore has put clamps on them and the practice.  In Indonesia the Chinese had the US to help the Lim Soe Liems and the Sutanto’s  to park their ill gotten gains pillaged from Indonesia’s treasuries and banks during the Suharto era in Singapore banks and treasury notes.

The same with the Chinese from Myanmar like the late Lo Hsin Han the opium and heroin warlord. Lee Kuan Yew hanged his mules in Changi jail whilst banking his drug money in his state’s banks (Helen Vatsikopolous Dateline SBS TV 2003)

To top it off, Guan Eng claims Malaysia has been running a budget deficit for 15 years in a row.

The last time Malaysia recorded a surplus he says was “when Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim was Deputy Prime Minister. It is imperative that he be elected as Prime Minister to put Malaysia back in the black.”

You can fool some of the people some of the time. You can’t fool all of the people all of the time.

Malaysia has run surpluses more than you give it credit for. Remember what I said earlier about your economics degree from Monash? Perhaps that’s where the problem lies and your future and Penang’s is not looking good by the minute.

Remarkably you say is Malaysia did enjoy a surplus when Datuk Seri Anwar was Deputy Prime Minister. What you fail to say is that a country is not led by its Deputy Prime Minister. The country is run by its government led by its Prime Minister who during Anwar’s time as Deputy prime Minster, when there were surpluses, was Dr. Mahathir. (Hard to swallow?).

 Anwar presided over the failure of most of Malaysia’s non-banking financial institutions like the insurance sector in the early 1990’s when he was minister for finance. You fail to say that. Remember the Mercantile Insurance scam run by the Chinese taxi drivers and insurance agents in the Selangor area issueing cover notes running into over 2 Billion MYR? Or have you conveniently forgotten that? Anwar was finance minister then.

By learning from South Korea’s three critical success factors, we can arrest Malaysia’s graceful decline. Pakatan Rakyat has proven that we can run a clean, accountable and transparent state governments. We have overturned deficits into surpluses, reduced our state debts, increased our assets and reserves, and managed to save billions of public funds through open competitive tenders. More importantly, we have channelled our savings to the people through our people-centric social programmes. With your help and support, we can do the same for Malaysia.

CORRUPTION, TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT, BILLION DOLLAR TYPOS AND GOVERNMENT SURPLUSES

Identify the corruption  Guan Eng you  say of others which has plagued government and the country. And we will be happy to fund any legal action against individuals or institutions where there is evidence to support. Identify the clean smooth government any of your states run.

But what about the $360 million investment by Penang’s deputy chief minister in  a technology park in Wuhan China? No accountability no available report in the investment using public funds no explanation not even to parliament. Is this not like the unlawful slush funds given to Bersih by the Selangor state government to Ambiga to overthrow a duly elected government? Corruption did you say Guan Eng?

What about the “oversight or typo” of several billions of dollars of government money thrown like so much pig feed into a Chinese run tunnelling project? Again is that the product of a Monash University economics degree?

And what socio economic programmes do we refer to here? Driving out Indian squatters, selling Malay land as if it belongs by natural rights to the Chinese?

There is no compulsion on any government  to produce surpluses. The primary objective of government is to balance the budget. It is the pursuit of naked profit like naked surpluses that has brought the west to its knees.

The dead Margaret Thatcher did that as did her US counterpart Ronald Reagan. Neither were motivated by balance or long term prosperity. They encouraged “spend spend spend” economics to look good whilst putting the knife to social, welfare, education and health funding. That’s how they secured their surpluses. Everything was privatized.

Today Britons are asking for Thatcher’s funeral to be privatized and not burden the state with the $11million pounds it is likely to cost the state.  And why not? Malaysia deserves better indeed.

Malaysia Deserves Better!

I also wish to assure you that policies which will benefit the people will not bankrupt our country – only corruption will. Our promises in our Pakatan Rakyat Manifesto amounting to RM46 billion can easily be funded by an “anti-corruption dividend” of 25% from the RM206 billion worth of annual government procurements and projects. 25% amounts to RM51 billion in savings that we can potentially reap, which is more than enough to pay for our promises.

Really and where is the costing for your dream? Reigning in Corruption means taking back valuable licenses in banking, mining, gaming, land development and other public supply profit centres to be auctioned properly to the public and to a meritorious bidder in the Gaming licenses given to Genting’s Lim Goh Tong by Tengku Abdul Rahman.

Reining corruption also mean taking the sugar monopolies from Robert Kuok again a “gift” to the man and his brothers and not the result of a competitive public tender with merit being a casualty again. Reining corruption will also mean bringing Vincent Tan’s empire to heel, the Yeoh Tiong Lay empire under scrutiny, the Tiongs and Wongs of Sarawak whose empires were built on “gifts” (Graft and bribery) against what should have been competitive bidding processes.

If you are game enough to do it we have a list aided by good competent intelligence you will not be able to find if it were stuffed down your mouth. But you have to be serious. Or is your best comeback that we are racist?

Let us move forward to an international and intelligent state – one that educates and nurtures talent; one that promotes and rewards diligence, expertise and entrepreneurship; one that is liveable by being clean, green, safe and healthy; and one that practices integrity, justice and people-centric governance.

An intelligent state does not sound like what you are promising here. You are speaking of a Chinese dominated state like Lee Kuan Yew created in Singapore after promising he would create a meritocracy. A state where any semblance of the democratic process has been crushed by Kuomintang thugs.

Once bitten twice shy. But there are thumby’s and Miriam Mokhtars around and you can have them. As for the rest of us 5 May will be the day you and your Chinese chauvinists will be crushed. Malaysia deserves better. Of course it does. Better does not mean DAP or Pakatan.

Malaysia Deserves Better.

The only progress is change. Only when you have the courage to change, then can you live with dignity. The time has come for us to connect with each other as Malaysian brothers and sisters.

Guatama Buddha once said “Change comes not because of you but inspite of you”. The Chinese have no brothers and sisters unless there is trouble.

After the May 13 riots of 1969 the Chinese were so readily embracing the Indians calling them “Aneh” (older brother). As soon as they found their feet and gained the economic advantage bribing the public service to the hilt, they dislodged the Tamils from rubber plantations sending them to the streets and slums, engaging them as their thugs and enforcers inciting racial divisions between them and the Malays.

That’s okay once twice but not anymore. The DAP and Guan Eng’s demolitions of their homes and temples in order to allow towkays to build ugly terraces and high rises for speculative purpose’s in pursuit of a naked profit will not go down well now. Selangor is a prime example of the opposition’s greed and incompetence.

You do not share you do not care unless your “brothers and sisters are Chinese” jaundiced and slanted as your policies.

Where your problems be it Malay, Chinese Indian, Kadazan or Iban are our problems. Where your leaders, are our leaders. And where your children, are also our children. And where your hopes are our aspirations.

YOU THE DAP THE PAKATAN THE CHINESE CHAUVANISTS ARE OUR COLLECTIVE PROBLEM.

The forests cut down by the Tiongs and the Wongs in east Malaysia are not the problem of the BN. These are Chinese towkays bribing their way into obscene profits. Yeoh Tiong Lay goes to Church on Sundays but rapes the forests and funds NGO’s who supposedly care for the Orang Asli, Kadazans and Ibans all of who have been driven to an urban jungle planned by DAP and their allies where they can be exploited by the Guan Eng’s of this world.

We do not want to fear the government but the government to fear us. Join us in giving hope to you and the young.

We have no reason to fear the government. For the reasons given above we have every reason to fear and loathe you, the DAP and the exclusivity of the Chinese. Racist???

Let us connect with each other so that we can face the challenges of the future together. In preparing for the future, let us not let BN steal our children’s future as they have stolen ours for the last 56 years. Ini kali lah!

Where were you these 56 years that you see it so necessary to “connect with us now”? Go Away. You want power at all costs. Sorry you must be able to prove your worth with the proofs of your assertions and not by repeating Lee Kuan Yews and the  Kuomintang and Chin Peng’s lies of all those years ago. You want government try harder as the opposition first.

Malaysia Deserves Better. Malaysia deserves better than another Chinese enclave in South East Asia. One Singapore is one too many

Sincerely,

Lim Guan Eng
DAP Secretary-General

DEEPAK MORE DELUSIONAL THAN EVER

A MAGIC CARPET RIDE TO INFAMY

Deepak Jaykishan was not so long ago the favourite whipping boy of the opposition. With “impeccable” connections  he claimed to the first family, selling carpets (or was he just a carpet bagger?) doing errands for them (again of his own material) speaking volumes of the virtues of the Prime Minister and his wife he also boasted to the gullible his ability to sew up deals worth hundreds of millions of Ringgit with just a telephone call to Datin Rosmah.

All that came to an abrupt end when someone in the opposition got the man Deepak by his short and curlies. His investors in tow, the corporate watchdog and several businessmen who had also backed Deepak on the basis of his boasts realised Deepak was not all he was cut out to be. A fraud of such an unprecedent scale linked to this man had begun to unravel.

Deepak had fallen on his own sword. A braggart with tall tales of his near magical business prowess, he managed to snare in the gullible with outlandish claims of being able to make quick and obscenely large fortunes at the stroke of the pen and at the dial of a telephone to the prime Ministers wife. A man suffering delusions of grandeur much like his new mentor Anwar Ibrahim, Deepak has now joined that celebrated group within the opposition of liars, cheats and charlatans.

THE COMPANY YOU KEEP

First there was the over hyped self proclaimed messiah and redeemer of the “Rakyat” Raja Petra Kamaruddin, RPK. A blogger extraordinare a pathalogical liar and turncoat who was the oppositions pin up boy till RPK was betrayed by the opposition, turned on his friends and the opposition, betrayed others and exposed for the charlatan and the liar he turned out to be. The opposition had a huge vacancy in their credibility gap to be filled.

Behind Anwar Ibrahim stands the lawyer Sivarasan. Behind Deepak and Balasubramaniam by default stand prominent elements of the Malaysian Bar. Behind the Malaysian Bar looms large the shadow of foreign money, channeled through various NGO’s.

On each of their shoulders stands tall an intellectual and political dwarf in Ambiga Sreenivasan. Sreenivasn an opportunist and self serving individual has loyalties to none other than to herself and her masters in the civil societies movement.

Each of these entities and individuals have engaged in a campaign of defamation, deceit and the disinformation on behalf of a desperate crumbling opposition. Disinformation is a critical plank in the Pakatan’s only policy platform and strategy. That strategy in turn is peppered with personal attacks and sensationalism.

With independent polls indicating a tectonic shift towards the Barisan government especially from the Indians, rural Malays and now the Chinese, it is no wonder that the opposition now in desperation have had to trawl the bottom of the heap in search of a Deepak character to shore up interest in their existence and their dwindling fortunes. It is a strategy that has begun to backfire on them disastrously. And here is why.

DESPERATE DEEPAK

Deepak’s latest tirade against those he believes have scorned him is addressed to Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammed in a letter. In that letter it is clear that Deepak and those like him have little or no idea of how government or the justice system works in Malaysia. Even less do they understand how business and the conveyance of land is carried out. And that is a tragedy. Because behind Deepak are lawyers. Prominent Malaysian lawyers.

And the opposition it seems is only too happy to have the delusional Deepak wallow in his cesspool of ignorance as long as he throws mud. Because some of it will stick and that’s all that matters to the opposition.

Now here’s the rub. Deepak in his disinformation campaign implicates himself in the commission of serious civil and criminal offences against the company’s code in Malaysia. And sadly he appears oblivious to the extent and the consequences of his admissions.

Deepak can’t run or hide from his admissions now. He instead behaves like the proverbial ‘woman scorned’. Perhaps he is another of those men taking on the persona of women when the lights are out? Well if he is he certainly is in the right camp now and in good company.

ANALYSING DEEPAK AND HIS ILLEGAL HOARDING OF FOREIGN EXCHANGE 

The letter directed to Tun Dr. Mahathir is full of self-righteous indignation and feigned outrage. The man begins with a complaint of a raid conducted by Bank Negara on his premises for what appears on his own material to be foreign currency regulation breaches. Thus begins the first in Deepak’s self inflicted wounds eroding his own credibility as a witness and as the individual on whose testimony the opposition seeks to win political points.

He does not explain how he accumulated the hoarding of foreign currency in his possession in breach of the law during that raid by Bank Negara. Instead Deepak ascribes ownership of that money to the first family. He offers no proof for that allegation he raises in his defence to the raiding officers. Except for the uncorroborated statement of his about the first family owning the money made to the arresting officers Deepak is prima facie liable for the hoard of foreign currency in his possession. And in Deepak’s and the opposition’s view naming Najib Razak and Datin Rosmah is a lawful defence and proof of his assertions.

Deepak then asks Dr. Mahathir in that letter to believe that some grave injustice against him had occurred by the raid. This according to Deepak is because he attributed his large hoarding of foreign currencies to the first family’s instructions to him to hold it. The story gets more interesting and bizarre as he tries then to besmirch the credibility of the CIMB and its chairman the prime minister’s brother in the process as well.

Deepak offers no reasonable excuse or defence to having breached foreign currency regulations. If the  excuses he proffered alone were legally admissible as a defence, then anyone could lawfully blame the first family as a defence to committing murder, stealing, cheating, lying and fraud by applying the “Deepak defence” and get away with it. We would simply have to say “the devil made me do it”.

DEEPAKS LETTER – TURNING TO TUN DR. MAHATHIR MOHAMMED-

A DESPERATE OPPOSITION IN SEARCH OF CREDIBILITY

Now let us examine the credibility of Deepak’s claims that the first family asked him or ordered him to hoard large amounts of foreign currencies in breach of the law. Lets not forget for a moment that the Prime minister’s brother is head of the largest bank (an international bank) in Malaysia in the CIMB.

Common sense would tell us that if the first family were so inclined to commit breaches of the foreign currency law by hoarding foreign currencies like Deepak did, they could have accessed the vast private and secret banking networks in the region leading to Singapore, Dubai and Switzerland. They could have used the services of CIMB to facilitate such a transaction. Instead Deepak wants us to believe they chose him above all the other safer and more reliable means of achieving what Deepak says they were trying to achieve.

In his tirade disguised as a letter to Dr. Mahathir Deepak then goes on to claim a “landmark legal decision” in his favour on the Bangunan Angkasa, Bukit Raja land deals. Again using this failed deal he grabs the opportunity to once more tarnish the reputations of the first family.

In the letter he claims the first family and the government failed to enforce the court’s ‘landmark’ decision in his favour. Is it really up to a former or serving Prime Minister to interfere in a court’s decision? Is this what Pakatan’s leaders would do in government? What are we facing here, a bunch of tyrants and fascists parading as democrats and a government in waiting? Remember Deepak is not alone. He has a bevy of lawyers in the background prompting his every move like they did with Balasubramaniam.

GAZUMPED

More tragically Deepak tries to describe a land transaction which he was party to in terms that suggest  he attempted a leveraged deal (gazumping) which did not work in his favour. He was gazumped in the end. There are no anti gazumping laws in Malaysia as regards to land transactions.

He then advances a more bizarre theory which can only be described as an act of unmitigated stupidity by him and his lawyers. Their negligence to their client Deepak led to someone else benefitting from the decision of the CIMB, to sell the property at the centre of his ‘deals’. Deepak does not say the deal was not properly consummated or that he had no title to the property. The seller changed her mind. Deepak thinks that’s against the law. The seller had all right interest and title to dispose of to whomsoever she chose to deal with. And exercise that right she did.

Deepak does not tell us the full story. Deepak had arranged for a third party company to purchase what he was intending to purchase himself through a leveraged transaction which failed. The third party was not Boustead but it got wind of the transaction as did the CIMB, and as the seller did not wish to conclude the sale to Deepak. The bank intervened and sold it off to someone Deepak did not approve of.

DEEPAK AND THE MAGIC MONEY TREE

What Deepak is trying to tell the world is this. Everytime he fails at something including his many other hare brained ideas someone else has to carry the blame for his failures. Deepak was lucky. He managed to con a large number of people to put their money into his many schemes. Because at one time he did sell carpets amongst other things to the Razaks. He has used that connection of his to exaggerate his relationship to the first family and to government ministers in order to entice investors to his schemes.

Deepak does not say how he raised significant amounts of money from the public to fund many of his get rich quick deals in breach of the corporations act. Deepak has still not accounted for his very large hoardings of foreign exchange in his possession. Blaming it on the first family without any admissible evidence with his history of name dropping and exaggeration is not what the law calls proof of innocence.

What he also conveniently fails to disclose in the letter to Dr. Mahahtir is the reason for the quantum of money he offered to acquire these properties and why it was so high. No one forced him into a purchase it. He went in to the deal voluntarily.

Deepak failed to lodge a proper prospectus and failed to provide other disclosures required under the law of anyone seeking to raise large sums of money from the public. Deepak does not identify the sources of his bounty and neither does he provide evidence of his right to take money from the public for some of his schemes without disclosures or a proper prospectus.

DEEPAK OPPORTUNISM AND OPPORTUNISTS

Deepak was never one shy of the cameras then and neither is he shy of them now. He took photos with anyone he thought had standing in the community, especially in government. Deepak then flaunted his connections to the many gullible get rich quick common folk who believed Deepak could pull Rabbits out of the hat for them. Its called social climbing and Deepak made a living out of being a social climber. What Deepak did with his name dropping and photo opportunities is only equaled by the Gold Scammers who scammed thousands of their savings using photos of the scammers with government officials.

When his schemes failed, with many people (investors) literally baying for his blood, Deepak went to the press and contacted lawyers aligned to Pakatan. These are the same lawyers who assisted Balasubramaniam perjure himself through the 2 statutory declarations they drafted for him. They then arranged press conferences and the spiel in the blogsphere of the opposition to spin yarns about conspiracies, corruption, murder and multi billion dollar scams involving the first family.

If any of what Deepak says is true, then he is prima facie implicating himself in the commission of serious criminal offences. Apart from lying and defaming others Deepak has been attempting to carve out for himself what he believes would be a special place in the sun under a new government of Pakatan he dreams of like Anwar and the DAP.

Deepak is not alone. Sadly there are “journalists” other professionals and business people who smell blood and believe there is a change of government in the air. And like stray dogs and vultures they queue up to bark in the night in the vain belief they will somehow benefit from the change in government they expect come GE 13. If that’s not moral turpitude (corruption) they complain of then what is corruption?

SELECTIVE DISCLOSURES AND HALF TRUTHS

Going further into Deepak’s letter to Dr. Mahathir to the claim of a ‘certain Islamic bank’ which according to Deepak conspired to injure him, once again he implicates himself in a suspect ‘corrupted’ deal. The commission of an offence (by his own admission again) which he blames others for and offers no proof of his assertions. Throwing more mud getting his hands dirty in the process.

Note the qualification of the bank being an ‘Islamic’ bank as if it mattered. That qualification is irrelevant unless one advances it as an opposition policy statement by a bum boy which Deepak clearly is. If he was serious about his allegation against the bank in question he would name the bank in much the same way he has named Datin Rosmah and the Prime Minister so many times in his other unfounded allegations. Each time Deepak has raised their names he offers no proof of his allegations against any of them. A liar at work here. A queer liar bought and paid for by a politically and morally bankrupt opposition.

Deepak should stick to Punjabi or Hindi whenever he writes or speaks. The man is semi literate and a liar. He asks Dr. Mahathir:

Now why is it that after such clear incriminating evidence, till to date there has been no investigation on Rosmah, Najib or Nazim (Najib’s brother)? This takes selective prosecution to an entirely different level doesn’t it? How does Tun suggest I seek duress then? Let’s talk about my court experience now”.

THE PUPPET MASTERS PULLING DEEPAKS STRINGS- AN OPPOSITION IN CRISIS

He seeks duress? No he means redress. Like Balasubramaniam using words like susceptible in his SD. Deepak is clearly being led by someone else here. He is indulging in someone else’s vocabulary. Anyway why does he seek legal advice from Dr. Mahahtir? Clearly because he does not understand how the legal system works, how one does not go to a chemist for bread or to the opposition or him for the truth.

Deepak has not produced one single iota of evidence that can be corroborated to support his many far fetched allegations to give it a character of legitimacy or truth. These are the rantings of a cheat caught out in the act then implicates himself by confessing openly to committing criminal and civil offences then saying “the devil made me do it”. Deepak echoes mindlessly the strategy and policies of a politically bankrupt PKR.

Yes we do need an opposition to make government work. But no one in their right mind would want to be tainted, to be caught backing or to be seen supporting an opposition to the truth, an incompetent bunch of liars whose only policy is a personal vendetta against Dr. Mahathir and UMNO.   Clearly inspite of their claims to be persecuted, the Chinese are Anwar’s puppet masters supported by disgruntled middle class Malays who feel marginalized.

Anwar now struggles to tell the population his will not be “a Chinese government”.  Now if the Chinese dominance of a Pakatan government is not a concern for the majority and not a reality, why does Anwar need to re assure people his will not be a Chinese government? What about the DAP campaigns which scream otherwise?

The PKR’s only policies to date are anti Mahathir statements, unfounded allegations against a sitting prime minister and his wife conveyed by the septic voices and minds of Raja Petra Kamaruddin, Balasubramaniam and now Deepak Jaykishan. The ugly hand prints of those members of the Malaysian Bar who have been supporting Sabah secessionists all the time is clearly evident smudged all over Deepak’s campaign.

DEEPAK’S LAW. A NEW BILL INTO LEGISLATION UNDER PAKATAN?

By Deepak’s law, dealing in land whilst in office amounts to the commission of an offence by a senator he names. To him this is because she either bought or sold land whilst in office. By his standards (and his law) most world leaders are therefore criminals and crooks. So why did Deepak who believed it to be wrong engage with the senator? Is he not then guilty of aiding and abetting her in the commission of an offence at least?

Under Deepak’s law Lee Kuan Yew and his family would be crooks for being proprietors of the Tat Lee Bank (since restructured) amongst other major investments they hold. The Bush family would be crooks for ownership of Zapata Oil and other oil and gas and banking businesses worldwide. Dick Cheney would be breaking the law for Haliburton and Hillary Clinton for indulging in her private financial interests whilst in office. Of course there is Baroness Margaret Thatcher (who Deepak has claimed to associates he knows personally) for being a major shareholder in Burma oil.

But where in the constitution of Malaysia or the rules of parliament of Malaysia does it say that a member of parliament whether it is the prime minister or a senator is prohibited from buying or selling real property or engaging in business generally whilst in office?

Notice how conveniently Deepak avoids mention of Karpal Singh and his son owning and operating a legal practice (as a business) whilst serving the public and the country through their parliamentary office like Sivarasah? Now should that also not be an offence according to the law of Deepak (or the Pakatan)?

DEEPAK’S BREACHES OF THE LAW SWEPT UNDER HIS CARPETS

Deepak blames Raja Ropiah for “purposely” delaying the issuance of some document in his favour. What he does not say is that his lawyers failed him by not being vigilant in the conveyance of the property in question. Ropiah’s side found an advantage and took the benefit of it to themselves. Unless of course he is saying that Ropiah’s actions were outside the statutory requirement for providing such a certificate or that she was bound by law to do so.

It is called a commercial decision and prudent decision making in commerce. Deepak is clearly incapable of such decisions because his entire existence has been built on smoke and mirrors and through defrauding people claiming he had the first family in his pocket. Not the case.

Deepak is presently being hounded by many people who placed their faith and their money in him to pull rabbits out of an empty worn hat. What came out of it instead was a can of worms and cupboard full of skeletons.

Apart from a litany of what can only be described as half truths, outright lies and manufactured situations and conspiracies Deepak also proclaims his commitment to working for Malaysia as the Tun (Dr. Mahathir) had done and continues to this day.

Deepak’s listed public company has been involved in a number of sham schemes called “pump and dump”. Deepak the braggart and liar makes statements to the public as an officer of a public company he controls that drives the price of its shares upwards, dumps significant amounts of it to gullible speculative buyers then tries to conceal his crimes by blaming those who he has an axe to grind with.

Riot if Pakatan Loses GE 13

FAILURE NOT AN OPTION 

Following Time Magazine’s recent revelation that the opposition political parties in Malaysia have set up bases in Singapore to manage the logistics of ‘transporting and managing’ voters at the next general elections in Malaysia, newer and more disturbing information about a more sinister strategy and tactic of the opposition led by the sentient minds behind Bersih has begun to emerge.

It has been leaked that the diplomatic missions of Australia, the UK and the US have devised contingency plans for their citizens in the region for the period during and after the next general elections to be held in Malaysia this year.

According to an Australian embassy official, ‘it is a precautionary move’ which is ‘standard procedure’  advised by the Department of Foreign Affairs in Canberra during elections in any of the countries of this region.

“Not so” according to a reporter from a foreign press agency familiar with the workings of the Australian mission in KL. The reporter is himself based in Singapore. According to his sources within the Malaysian opposition parties, he has it on good authority that the opposition in Malaysia led by Bersih and the Pakatan intend to take to the streets to agitate to bring down the Barisan government if the Barisan wins another term in office. They plan to agitate till any new Barisan government is brought down.

Agitation has been planned to take place in the main cities of the states of Penang, Selangor, Johor and Perak immediately after the elections if the opposition parties do not secure an outright win that they expect at the next general elections to be held later this year.

“It is a foregone conclusion in the minds of many of the small but highly vocal Malaysian opposition leaders that they will win government at the next general elections to be held in Malaysia” according to our source.

A Malaysian government spokesman when contacted on the leak would not comment beyond the point that ‘all precautions and contingencies have been considered by government and its security apparatus’.

The spokesman went further to say that government had been monitoring each of the groups who have a violent and disruptive agenda for the general elections. The government he said would take stern and swift measures against any conduct by anyone that would be deemed to be disruptive and a threat to peace, stability, law and good order.

THE OPPOSITION’S POSITION-WE SHALL OVERRUN

A group consisting of ” representatives” of 4 NGO’s, one from Bersih, one from each of the Malaysian Bar Association, a Christian clergyman and a former government servant all of whom requested anonymity met at a breakfast session  in Kuala Lumpur with the writer on 12 February 2013 to discuss the political situation in Malaysia. All of them  without equivocation admitted to the plans for street agitation in the event of a Barisan victory.

Each of them separately and in unison appeared to echo the position of the other suggesting that they had a ‘moral role to play’ in ensuring free and fair elections in Malaysia.

When asked by the writer what they meant by “free and fair elections” a central theme of their attack on the Barisan government, the member of the Malaysian Bar Association at the meeting volunteered a response as follows:

if Pakatan does not form the next government, you will know that it has not been free and fair and we will agitate till Najib’s government and the Barisan falls. We have prepared press releases, media presentations and links to the ‘outside world’ via operational centres in Jakarta, Singapore and Bangkok to take the message out that the elections were rigged”.

When queried about the validity of such statements and presumptions, the response from the Malaysian Bar Association representative was equally baffling:

“It is up to the government to prove it was free and fair. We have proved that elections in this country since independence, especially the last general elections in 2008 were rigged”. He further quoted Datuk Ambiga Sreenivasan as being a “credible source of the proofs that the electoral commission is corrupted” and that the government of Najib Razak has made provisions to “rig the next general elections”.

OPPOSITION STATES SLUSH FUND THE RIOT

A more disturbing revelation made by the NGO’s at the above meeting confirms the long held suspicion that each of the states that is currently in opposition hands has contributed to a slush fund to be used to finance a media campaign and the agitation planned for the post election campaign of disruption reinforcing what Datuk Ambiga Sreenivasan admitted to in a Malaysia Kini interview last year.
