Now PAS is MCA’s problem.”Fight or flight” is the only survival tool left.
‘Potentially casting them out of the political mainstream…’Umno no longer considers any of the BN component parties important.’ Former MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek, you need to ask yourself this: What are MCA, PPP and MIC contributing to BN? Voters, donations?MCA has now become an inconsequential and ineffective partner. It has become a lackey to Umno, an accomplice in Umno’s sins and misdeeds. it ever commented on the RM2.6 billion donated and banked into PM Najib Razak’s bank accounts?Has it said anything about the 1MDB crisis, about the free fall of the ringgit, the adverse impact of the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the use of the race card via the ‘red shirts’?They are endorsing Umno and PM Najib Abdul Razak’s scandals by not speaking up. MCA and the others can close shop if Umno and PAS were to link up.As for PAS and Umno taking control of the government, so be it. They will fight among themselves and perish. Indeed, they will learn the hard way.Who has made MCA irrelevant? All the leaders past and present who were more interested in lining their own pockets.And why is Umno so rich that they can buy the hearts of the holy ones? Because MCA is willing to close its eyes while the enrichment parties continue.Other than Umno, most of the other component parties are mosquito parties. MCA, MIC and Gerakan are pale shadows of what they were before.They are of no consequence to Umno. More important decisions are made in Umno meetings than BN or cabinet meetings.Umno and Najib don’t care anymore about BN non-Muslim parties as their members are referred to as ‘penumpang Pendatang’The problem is that MCA, MIC, etc, are so blinded by thirst for positions and power, it will be next to impossible to extricate themselves from Umno. be prepared for a massive rejection come next GE.after 58 years of walking together arm-in-arm on a multilane road, only a single lane on this bridge is reserved for the ‘chosen ones’ to cross. The rest can take a hike or take a dive
The late Nik Aziz Nik Mat upholds the Quran as his guide which explains why he does not want to associate himself with Umno.
Hadi Awang, on the other hand, has no issues going against the Quran because his religion is Umno.And the Day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands [in regret] he will say, “Oh, I wish I had taken the Messenger’s way. Oh, woe to me! I wish I had not taken that one as a friend.” (Surah 25:27-28)what PAS has to say, especially Hadi, because from our observation, he talks one thing and does the opposite, and he even stabs you in the back.No other leader has this magnetism like Najib. Remember, he even pulled in RM2.6 billion in donation
the details are somewhat cloudy) who gave RM2.6 billion to the man sitting next to you, Hadi Awang.Is it not good to emulate those who are generous? Or do you prefer to cozy up to those who are crooked while you disguise yourself in a robe of religiosity?
Mahathir-Muhyiddin (2M accusing Prime Minister called him a ‘coward’ and a ‘psychopath’ for his ‘political vendetta
The real cost of a bribe is all an eyewash Abdul Gani Patail was removed as Attorney-general because he was on the verge of filing charges in the 1MDB case.this in reference to the investigation of the special task force on 1MDB including claims that RM2.6 billion was deposited into Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s private bank accounts.the 1MDB perpetrator or perpetrators in court that his tenure was prematurely terminated?”The scrambling for cover was such it creates the impression that the charging was to happen today or tomorrow,Assuming that the case is in such an advanced stage, would the ‘sacking’ of the attorney-general and dismissal of the deputy prime minister and a couple of ministers seal the boiling cauldron?The potency of the executive power may be able to stop the 1MDB muck from being exposed in a court of law, but it has no power to stop it from being tried in the court of public opinion,The announcement of Gani Patail’s ouster said he had been removed for health reasons, although he told friends in Kuala Lumpur that he had no idea it was coming. He is due for retirement on October 6 but now has been shunted into a position as judicial and legal services officer. He was replaced by a former federal court judge, Mohamed Apandi Ali, who was described by a source as an UMNO stooge despite his position on the bench of the country’s highest court.The sackings are a vivid indication of the growing crisis over 1MDB, which according to a spate of officially unreleased investigations has looted hundreds of millions of US dollars that were said to have been diverted into accounts of financier Low Taek Jho, a close Najib family friend. Another US$680 million was traced from 1MDB-linked companies into Najib’s personal account at AmBank in Kuala Lumpur. The money was believed to have been used to fund the 2013 general election for the Barisan Nasional. As nearly as can be determined, 1MDB has the equivalent of US$11.8 billion in liabilities, an unknown amount of that unfunded. The fund, backed by Malaysia’s Ministry of Finance, is having trouble meeting its debt obligations and money has been steered from various government accounts to 1MDB to try to cover the losses.The surpsise ouster of Gani Patail may be an indication that the official tide is turning against Najib, as is the removal of the Special Branch chief. However, along with the others who have been removed, including cabinet ministers, Najib has neutralized – for now at least – almost everybody who opposed him.The most important event in Malaysia is Umno’s general assembly, not the general election.It is there that the direction of Malaysia is determined instead of the ballot box.And this time around, a seismic shift took place – somewhat under the radar – which could have massive repercussions in the future of politics in Malaysia.
We need an answer.
There is one. I am not being unmindful of potential consequences in a Muhyiddin- Mahathir,-military zone, although at some point the big powers will have to grapple with the possibility of Muhyiddin- Mahathir,’s tactical weapons finding their way into the hands of cyber terrorists. The time has come for a war doctrine against cyber terrorism that has no space for alibis.Anyone who provides sanctuary to tyhis traitor – whether individuals or governments – must be punished, swiftly and decisively, through collective action. there has to be a cost to hypocrisy.
asks a question that repeatedly withers on the dry sand of evasive clichés. How long will the apartheid of two laws for the same crime continue in UMNO ?,Dont cross the line a manipulative phrase designed specifically to provide cover for perpetrators of crime Neither UMNO nor PAS public opinion would accept such a pussyfoot leadership.
It was surprising therefore that general secretary, should choose a long-distance trident that punctures three fundamental positions of his party UMNO. He acknowledges, courageously, that the present government has been a political disaster; he bemoans the rise of a new plutocracy within that is distant from voter.
a Najib family-run possess the commitment and resilience to survive such a difficult 2018 election ahead? Many UMNO leaders who back Najib no longer believe they can win in 2018 But there isn’t a gambler in a casino, or in a general election lottery, who will accept defeat before a last throw of dice an UMNO formula that has been a populist pillar of the entire democratic hierarchy. has lifted debate from that usual mundane swamp of me-too pandering.Politics has no space for lost-and-found options. What is lost, remains lost.A core problem with Umno democracy is the sanctimonious worship of sacred cows. Some issues are placed on an altar high above all levels of debate. Even discourse is sacrilege . It is not a question of right and wrong; or, more accurately,that no one would donate such a colossal sum of money, why should 1MDB scandal be banished from discussion? Umno vice-president Hishammuddin Hussein said “If you don’t have the ability to absorb whatever has been thrown at you, how are you going to lead the country?” at a speech launching Umno Youth’s Akademi Kepimpinan Kapten Hussein
Datuk Seri Najib Razak is unfit to be the prime minister of Malaysia due to “wrongful conduct” in receiving RM2.6 billion into his personal bank accounts, the multiple scandals. So Mahathir, Muhyiddin, cashiered Rural and Regional Development Minister Shafie Apdal and others have begun a war of attrition, going to grassroots members throughout the country in an attempt to persuade them that Najib and his associates have to go or the Barisan Nasional, the national ruling coalition led by UMNO, will lose the next general election. has shown the capacity not only to pull voters in its direction but also to transfer votes not to Najib
When aftershocks trembled through did not indulge in the luxury of diagnosis without the difficult demands of a prescription.The basic question does not change: who can win? But the answer does. It is dynamic, and roams across multiple options to rest upon the most useful signal to an there can be only one candidate in a seat. For Najib, the central message of 2013 has two principal elements: a credible promise to lift Malay’s economy out of the doldrums of paralysis; and the assurance that it will be an inclusive force that reaches out to all segments of the nation. This is the necessary evolution from popularity to governance. Popularity is possible from negative factors, like rage against corruption, mismanagement, ineptitude, and abuse of power associated with the operations of 1MDB, it appears – according to accounts from the blogging world close to UMNO’s corridors of power – that participants in the assembly meeting may have witnessed an admission of non-transparent and non-accountable political funding on a scale quite unprecedented anywhere in the world. but governance is fashioned by a positive agenda. You are elected by most of the people; you rule for all the people.
Umno regime now desperate for survival,s It is entirely within the logic of turbulent democracies that a dream run should be interrupted by a wake-up call. It might be pertinent to note, in this context, that dreams are best shaped into reality with the help of daylight. Among the dangers of darkness is that it obscures the bumps on that twisting road to regeneration. Those who know Najib are aware that, as master of the long game, he is not going to be deflected by the short pass; he will NOT absorb the stumble and restore his stride towards that horizon .The basic question does not change: who can win? But the answer does. It is dynamic, and roams across multiple options to rest upon the most useful signal to an there can be only one candidate in a seat.

Accept the reality and the very serious necessity to thrash these issues out among then you create your own trouble. You may be happy to see that fellow, but you should cry because by doing that you are destroying the party.
MCA will not interfere with Umno’s decision to extend an olive branch to PAS, despite MCA’s fervent opposition to Reaching out to PAS
In UMNO Najib fight, can Pas come to rescue?With Najib at helm UMNO is at its knees.
Malays have handed over their vote as proxy in the hope of their ecomomy security and some degree of welfare. The first beneficiary was UMNO. That illusion evaporated in stages over corruption and the antics of Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor, who has openly flaunted vast wealth. Malay support – the backbone of the party – has fallen to 31 percent, according to the most recent poll, driving UMNO to make common cause with Parti Islam se-Malaysia, the rural-based Islamic fundamentalist party. Chinese support has fallen to less than 5 percent. to be replaced, in phases, by trust in regional formations.What was common is that in neither case did the transfer occur through PAS intermediaries.It is perfectly valid to point out that we do not have proportional representation.
Malays understand this, which is why they has taken over six decades of experience for a murmur to crystallize into a cause. They might have remained content with the status quo if they felt that they were getting economic benefits on par with others. They now realize that instead of an economy, those who usurped their vote left them only with a harvest of fear. The young are tired of clichés. They want education. Their habitat and skills are largely urban rather than rural. They want jobs. They are starved for employment DAP .understands the curve in electoral equations, and has learnt from what might be called the new template Najib has no willpower to carry his momentum into next election
With the United Malays National Organization’s annual general meeting out of the way last week with his Deputy Muhyiddin, safely intact with and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak in the saddle as expected, is expected to set off on a new course a guerrilla war.in making
It is sickening that Umno has been rotting to the core as seen in the recent Umno AGM where the focus is on saving a tainted and inept leader instead of discussing the woes and pain suffered by members and citizens with the spiraling costs of living due to GST and poor governance and fiscal policies!! The bleak business sentiment,poor income for Petronas, the GST woes of small traders and lacklustre/poor housing and construction industries and economic outlook next year is going to hit the poor, youths and the working class hard!! Yet the current Cabinet only offer is to ask people to eat ‘sauce and rice’ to live!! Hopeless indeed is this bunch of Minister
Malays in general are a respectful and smart people. That include those in Umno. What we see now in Umno is not the majority supporting Najib but those in the top leadership like the division leaders. How can a proud and honest race of people accept a person who receive 2.6 billions into his bank account and pretend it is not for his personal use. Then he should show everyone where is the balance of the money. So this campaign to reveal to the grassroots is commendable. And I am sure they know there is no free lunch. So if Najib is really given the money by Arabs then he owes them big favours.
