Kit Siang seorang yang jujur tolak tol,yang lain hipokrit...


Lim Kit Siang memang dikenali sebagai tokoh pembangkang veteran dan tegar dalam politiknya bersama DAP. 

Selepas puluhan tahun bergerak bersama parti itu, di mata seorang bekas pengarang, Lim adalah satu-satunya ahli politik yang benar-benar mahu menghapuskan tol di lebuh raya.

Kata Mustapa Kamil Mohd Janor, selain Lim pemimpin lain dianggap sekadar bercakap mengenai tol untuk meneruskan kelangsungan politik masing-masing.

"Satu-satunya orang yang saya akan percaya jika dia bercakap mahu menghapuskan semua toll ialah Lim Kit Siang.

"Yang lain akan berkata begitu hanya untuk kelangsungan politik mereka," katanya.



Kenyataan bekas pengarang kumpulan New Straits Times itu dimuat naik di media sosial selepas Datuk Seri Najib Razak menceritakan bagaimana kerajaan "terpaksa" membatalkan keputusan diambil pemimpin terdahulu.

Kata perdana menteri langkah berkenaan diambil demi kesejahteraan rakyat. Antara langkah yang diambil kerajaannya ialah menghapuskan tol di beberapa lebuh raya.

"Ia bukannya mudah tetapi saya tak setuju membayar tol setiap hari adalah baik untuk rakyat.

"Bagi Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan dan Lebuhraya Karak, sesekali tak mengapa. Tetapi bayar tol sehingga empat kali dalam satu hari siapa tak marah?" katanya lagi.


Kata Najib beliau merungkaikan apa yang dirasakan tidak memihak kepada kepentingan  rakyat Malaysia.

Pada beberapa dekad lalu Lim memang dikenali begitu lantang menolak pelaksanaan kutipan tol di lebuh raya di negara ini.

DAP sendiri pernah menganjurkan beberapa protes bagi membantah dasar berkenaan. Kebanyakannya berlangsung ketika kerajaan dipimpin Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Kini Dr Mahathir adalah salah seorang pemimpin pembangkang yang gigih menyerang kerajaan ketika tarikh pilihan raya umum semakin hampir.


Najib pula sering menggunakan program umum yang dihadirinya untuk menyerang Dr Mahathir - bekas pemimpin Umno yang bertanggungjawab menaikkan namanya sebagai perdana menteri.

Menujukan pertanyaan secara langsung kepada Najib, Mustapha Kamil mempersoalkan pendirian perdana menteri ketika kerajaan membenarkan sesebuah syarikat mengutip tol.

"Di mana Najib apabila semua perjanjian konsesi tol itu ditandatangani dulu?" katanya. - mk

The Two Tuns in Bangsar...

This morning a multiracial visitor at Banana Banana Restaurant in Bangsar was shocked by the presence of Tun and Tun Siti.

While the two Tuns were shocked by the spontaneous reaction of all the visitors who stood up and gave applause to the two couples.

What triggered such a reaction ?.

It is none other than the manifestation and demonstration (or more accurately) the emotions of the feelings and the emotions of the people who have been buried and buried all this time. 

Malaysians who have been paralyzed without being able to do anything to see Najib and Umno do the wrongdoing for the sake of disobedience without being ashamed, embarrassed and far beyond fear. 


As the people of all walks of life go through the depressing and burdensome life.

And Tun's presence at the restaurant this morning as a prospective Prime Minister Pakatan Harapan was seen as a light at the end of a dark, cold and long tunnel. Bringing newness, hope and new spirit. 

Malaysia is not just about to recover but it will reach the vision of the Tun (so far). - Photos-Mohamad Mohd Hanizam Yunus,Firdaus Abdullah, steadyaku47

Pak lebai miang...

A man, clad in a white jubah and kopiah, has been accused of touching a woman’s thigh while riding a train on the Sri Petaling LRT line here.

The 53-second clip allegedly shows the elderly man moving his right hand towards the female passenger, who was seated next to him. The man appeared to glance down towards the woman’s left leg intermittently. He was also shown moving his fingers until they made contact with the woman's limb.

The woman, who appeared to be asleep, did not move and seemed to be unaware of the man’s actions.

“I have heard of such incidents but I have not seen it with my own eyes. This happened on my way to work in the Sri Petaling LRT line. He stopped when he noticed the Malay couple beside me eyeing him.

“He straight away got off the train at that stop,” the Netizen who uploaded the video claimed in a Facebook posting.

The Netizen advised passengers not to sleep, use their mobile phones or talk to their colleagues during train rides. She also urged Rapid KL to step up security to prevent such incidents from recurring.

Rapid KL, in a reply to the complainant, said the matter has been forwarded to the relevant parties. - nst

Pandangan AG bebaskan Najib 
dari 1MDB bukan kebenaran mutlak...

Kesimpulan dibuat Peguam Negara (AG) Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali bahawa Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak tidak melakukan sebarang kesalahan dalam isu 1MDB, tidak boleh dianggap sebagai "kebenaran mutlak".

Anggota Parlimen Bukit Gelugor, Ramkarpal Singh, berkata ini kerana perkara itu bukan diputuskan oleh peguam negara atau Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM), tetapi sebaliknya oleh mahkamah.

"Dengan rasa hormat, saya berpendapat bahawa adalah salah untuk membuat kesimpulan pasti bahawa PM tidak melakukan salah laku berkaitan dengan 1MDB hanya kerana AG dan SPRM seolah-olah berfikir demikian.

"AG dan SPRM tidak diiktiraf sebagai penimbang tara dalam undang-undang. Oleh itu, kenyataan mereka mengenai kelalaian PM dalam saman 1MDB, hanya pandangan mereka mengenai perkara itu.

"Pandangan tersebut tidak boleh dianggap kebenaran mutlak kerana hanya mahkamah yang diiktiraf mempunyai kuasa untuk membuat pernyataan kehakiman mengenai perkara itu," kata peguam berkenaan dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.

"Oleh itu, sama ada atau tidak PM melakukan salah laku berhubung 1MDB hanya boleh diputuskan secara mutlak oleh mahkamah undang-undang yang diiktiraf setelah menimbangkan bukti mengenai perkara itu."

Beliau mengulas keputusan Mahkamah Rayuan yang mengambil perhatian kehakiman bahawa Najib tidak melakukan salah laku berhubung 1MDB berdasarkan kenyataan Apandi Ali pada 26 Jan 2016 dan kenyataan SPRM.

Ramkarpal berkata beliau mendapati "sukar untuk memahami logik di sebalik alasan Mahkamah Rayuan itu".

"Sekiranya Mahkamah Rayuan benar, semua pendakwaan yang dipersetujui oleh Peguam Negara tidak perlu didakwa di mahkamah kerana keputusan untuk mendakwa mestilah bermaksud terdapat bukti yang cukup dalam fikirannya terhadap seseorang tertuduh.

"Sekiranya mahkamah boleh mengambil perhatian kehakiman mengenai perkara ini, mengapa perlu bukti dikemukakan di mahkamah?" soal beliau. - mk

A mind-boggling decision by the judiciary...

When the court of appeal via Justice Yaacob Md Sam held that the court took a judicial notice that Prime Minister Najib Razak did not commit any wrongdoing with regard to 1MDB, I was totally speechless. I sincerely believe that even the entire world would, by now, take judicial notice of the state of Malaysia - that is how bad the state of our country is.

Judicial notice is a legal term coined by the legal fraternity to refer to a well-known and undisputed fact. Thus, any fact falling under the realm of judicial notice requires no proof at all. Its truth is too obvious to be unduly ignored.

But, was the court right in holding that it took judicial notice that Najib did not commit any wrongdoing in respect of 1MDB simply because the learned Attorney General (AG) Mohamed Apandi Ali (photo) had made a decision halting any idea of prosecuting Najib. According to the learned judge, the finding by the AG, absolving Najib from any wrongdoing in IMDB, was widely reported in public domain. Thus, the court was entitled to rely on this fact to derive its opinion on judicial notice.

With the greatest respect, I am of the considered view that the learned judge was plainly wrong. Yes, he could rely on the finding of the AG in not prosecuting Najib for any criminal offence relating to the 1MDB scandal as a basis for judicial notice. I don't think any Malaysian, and for that matter, not even Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua and his lawyer would have disputed such a notorious fact.

However, the judge's ruling on judicial notice should have ended there namely the learned AG did not want to proffer any criminal charge against Najib. Period.

Unfortunately, the learned judge went the extra mile. He held that the decision by the AG in not charging Najib for any criminal offence signifies that Najib did not commit any wrongdoing with regard to 1MDB.

Herein, with due respect, lies the manifest error. The learned judge should have realised that the decision of the learned AG in not prosecuting Najib could have been motivated by multiple reasons.

One of such reasons may indeed be that Najib did not commit any wrongdoing. But that reason should have never been concluded as the sole reason in this case. After all, Najib did acknowledge recently that 1MDB was problematic.

Anyhow, whenever any decision by the learned AG is open to several interpretations, it definitely does not qualify to be termed as judicial notice. What more if the decision is riddled with controversies.

Be that as it may, such a decision by the learned AG should have never been concluded as only one single fact, i.e Najib did not commit any wrongdoing in relation to 1MDB.

The court also opined that the decision of the learned AG in not making a prosecutorial decision against Najib in relation to 1MDB was also within the framework of Article 145 of the Federal Constitution. That very Article confers to the AG the power and discretion either to prosecute or not to prosecute any person for any criminal offence.

If one looks at Article 145 ( 3 ) of the Federal Constitution, one will definitely notice the word "may" has been deliberately used. It indicates the intention of the framers of our supreme law.

In my view, the word "may" simply means the discretion of the AG under the said Article is not absolute. Even in Singapore, the court there did not agree with the proposition that the AG is empowered with absolute power in a criminal enterprise.

After all absolute discretion is a contradiction in terms. As rightly pointed out by Lord Acton "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

With the greatest respect to the Court of Appeal, its abovesaid decision is only capable of being called one name only - mind-boggling. - Hanipah Maidin,mk

Ahli Parlimen Gua Musang Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah yakin Barisan Nasional (BN) mampu membawa pulang lebih 500,000 rakyat Kelantan yang berhijrah ke negeri lain kerana faktor kerja, untuk menabur bakti di negeri itu jika BN diberi mandat mentadbir Kelantan pada pilihan raya umum ke-14 (PRU14) nanti.

Tengku Razaleigh yakin BN mampu membangunkan kembali Kelantan merangkumi semua aspek seperti pendidikan, ekonomi dan infrastruktur, sama seperti yang dinikmati oleh negeri lain ketika Malaysia sedang menuju ke arah status negara maju.

“Sejak lebih 20 tahun lepas rakyat Kelantan terpaksa berhijrah ke negeri-negeri lain kerana PAS tidak mampu membangunkan Kelantan sekali gus gagal menyediakan peluang pekerjaan kepada penduduk di negeri ini.

“PRU14 ini adalah pertimbangan terbaik untuk rakyat menyokong BN kerana hanya BN sahaja yang mampu memulihkan keadaan itu,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas Majlis Perasmian dan Penyerahan Dewan Orang Ramai di Pos Brooke hari ini.

Katanya, beliau sudah menjadi Ahli Parlimen Gua Musang selama 45 tahun dan tidak pernah tewas pada pilihan raya umum yang ditandinginya.

“PRU14 merupakan penggal ke-12 saya bertanding dan ada beberapa pemimpin BN yang datang jumpa saya minta saya terus bertanding lagi pada kali ini. Saya akan pertimbangkannya,” katanya. - fmt

How ‘haram’ is this? Najib and Co. turn to 'suckling pig' to win Malay votes against the Chinese...

Everyday, we are seeing more proofs that the UMNO/BN coalition is arming itself with two new weapons for the 14th General Elections – fake news and corruption.

Najib and the UMNO/Barisan Nasional coalition are the worst culprits in concocting and peddling fake news and false information, but the UMNO/BN strategists and propagandists want to weaponise the fake news issues with new legislation and mechanism purportedly to combat fake news, but whose real purpose is to harass and persecute Pakatan Harapan leaders and supporters over fake news allegations while giving the UMNO/BN leaders and supporters immunity and impunity for the fake news they concoct and disseminate against Pakatan Harapan.

The attack launched by UMNO/BN cybertroops on the social media posting a fake photo of Muslim Pakatan Harapan leaders eating at a table where pork is served is one recent example.

The photo shows state PH chief Mukhriz Mahathir and Amanah president Mohamad Sabu eating at a table where a roast suckling pig could be seen.

The Facebook user posted the photo on Tuesday, captioned: “Nak undi Cina punya pasal sehingga sanggup makan babi. #Undi Pas.” (Because they want Chinese votes, they would even eat pork. #Vote PAS.)

This is fake news, as the sucking pig had been photoshopped, and this could be easily proven when compared to the original photograph.

In another instance, DAP Selangor and Wanita DAP leader, Young Syefura Othman(Rara) was target of the UMN0/BN cybertroopers and was accused of partaking in a Chinese festivity to chop up a sucking pig, when in fact she was not in the photograph or event at all!

It was a PKR event and those in the photograph were the Selangor PKR State Exco, Elizabeth Wong, PKR State Assemblywoman, Chua Yee Ling, and PKR Selayang Councillor Fok Wai Mun. Rara was not in the photograph or event, but she was defamed and Fok was falsely identified as her husband.



Such campaign of lies, fake news and false information must be condemned without reservation, and I must ask whether the Azalina Fake Committee on Fake News is the latest UMNO/BN stratagem to accuse and charge Pakatan Harapan of fake news, camouflaging the mass of fake news which UMNO/BN cybertroopers are concocting and peddling in the run-up to the 14GE.

The same applies to the corruption issue. The script is to use the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and other outfits to tarnish the image of Pakatan Harapan leaders as equally corrupt as Barisan Nasional leaders, and that on the score of integrity and corruption, the voters do not have much to choose between Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional.

This is why for the past month, the MCA Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong carried out the special assignment to undermine and destroy public confidence in DAP and Pakatan Harapan by ceaseless attacks on the Penang State Government’s undersea tunnel project, even to the extent of sabotage of the Penang undersea tunnel project.

This is most immoral and unethical for the greatest legacy of the Najib administration is undoubtedly the appellation of a global kleptocracy as a result of the world-infamous multi-billion dollar 1MDB kleptocratic money-laundering scandal, which has landed Malaysia with the worst ranking of TI CPI for the past 23 years. - limkitsiang.com

Woman dries panties using 
airliner's overhead vent...

Earlier this week, a woman on a Ural Airlines flight was filmed literally airing her dirty laundry on the plane.

The video, shot by a fellow passenger and shared on social media, shows the woman making the most of her air travel time by drying her underwear using an overhead air vent on the plane.

According to fellow passengers on the flight from southern Turkey to Moscow, the woman was nonchalant about the whole process which lasted about 20 minutes, and didn’t seem remotely embarrassed.

While fellow passengers were left puzzled by the woman’s unusual behaviour, none of them said a word to her.

According to the Daily Mail, one passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, said: 

‘Everybody was looking with interest and confusion, but everybody remained silent.’ –SAYS.COM

Tanpa imej sederhana,PAS hanyalah sperti klon UMNO...

TANPA IMEJ SEDERHANA, PAS HANYA SATU LAGI UMNO, KATA PENGANALISIS

Beralih ke arah lebih ekstrem dan menguburkan imej kesederhanaan yang disemai ketika zaman Nik Aziz Nik Mat, PAS kini seolah-olah menjadi cermin Umno, kata penganalisis politik.

Keputusan parti Islam itu untuk menggugurkan slogan seperti “PAS untuk semua” dan strateginya untuk fokus semata-mata pada isu kaum dan agama, bermakna ia akan hanya menarik pengundi daripada kumpulan yang sama dengan Umno.

Pensyarah politik dan dasar awam Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Dr Mazlan Ali berkata berdasarkan kajiannya pada 2015, kesedaran PAS tentang nasionalisme Melayu-Islam semakin meningkat, terutama selepas kematian Nik Aziz yang juga mursyidul am parti itu pada 2015.

“Konsep syumul dalam Islam yang dipegang PAS sebelum ini tidak lagi diamalkan  ,” kata Mazlan kepada The Malaysian Insight.

“Kita sedang melihat kecenderungan bercakap tentang isu Melayu. Ini bermakna PAS akan bercakap tentang perjuangan Melayu-Islam, yang sudah lama diperjuangkan oleh Umno,” katanya.

Sehubungan itu, sukar untuk pengundi atas pagar untuk membezakan antara PAS dan Barisan Nasional (BN).

Pensyarah Universiti Malaya, Dr Awang Azman Awang Pawi berkata kedua-dua PAS dan Umno pada masa ini menggunakan isu agama untuk mendapatkan sokongan.

“PAS menggunakan isu agama sebagai talian hayatnya dalam politik. Pendekatan politiknya hampir serupa dengan Umno,” katanya. 

Kedua-duanya, PAS dan Umno sudah sekian lama bertanding berebut undi Melayu-Islam, tetapi di bawah kepimpinan Nik Aziz, terdapat langkah lebih sedar oleh kepimpinan PAS untuk bekerjasama dengan parti pembangkang lain dan menggunakan agenda lebih besar iaitu termasuk hak asasi manusia dan mempertahankan hak perlembagaan bagi bukan Islam.

Nik Aziz sering mengkritik isu rasuah dalam kerajaan dan sangat lantang bercakap tentang skandal 1MDB.

Keputusan parti itu untuk lebih sederhana memberi kemenangan kepada pada pilihan raya umum (PRU) 2008 dan 2013. PAS memutuskan ikatan dengan DAP pada 2015 dan PKR 2016, susulan keputusan parti itu untuk melaksanakan undang-undang hudud di Kelantan. 

Kenaikan pangkat Abdul Hadi Awang ke jawatan tertinggi susulan kematian Nik Aziz, juga tidak membantu parti Islam itu.

Hadi menjadi lebih mesra dengan Presiden Umno dan Perdana Menteri Najib Razak dan kelihatan seirama dengan kebanyakan dasar yang dibawa Umno. Hadi dipetik sebagai berkata PAS akan bertanding dalam PRU sebagai sebahagian gabungan baharu, Gagasan Sejahtera dan akan melihat BN dan Pakatan Harapan sebagai musuh pada PRU14.

Tetapi, pakar melihat keputusan Hadi itu akan menyebabkan pertandingan tiga penjuru berlaku di Malaysia barat dan ia akan memberi kelebihan pada Umno dan BN.



Menang atau kalah

Profesor Universiti Utara Malaysia, Dr Mohd Azizuddin Mohd Sani memberi gambaran suram untuk PAS.

Katanya, jika parti itu terus memainkan sentimen kaum dan agama, ia akan tenggelam dengan kekuatan dan kebesaran Umno, dan akan ditolak oleh pengundi moderat.

“PAS jadi lebih konservatif, bersikap seperti Umno bila bercakap tentang Islam, agenda Melayu, sesuatu yang sudah lama Umno lakukan.

“Jadi, PAS perlu melihat semula identitinya kecuali jika mereka memang merancang untuk jadi seperti Umno,” katanya. – themalaysianinsight

Dr Siti Hasmah Ali revealed that she felt sad when Pakatan Harapan announced her husband Dr Mahathir Mohamad as its prime minister candidate.

Perhaps this was the reason for her tearing up when the announcement was made during the opposition coalition's convention in January.

In an interview with   Oriental Daily News , Siti Hasmah said she felt sad because Mahathir was no longer 56, which he was when he became prime minister in 1981.

"I asked him why he is willing to sacrifice to be the prime minister candidate again? (I asked) can you still do it at this age?

"He said he is doing it because he has a responsibility to return the nation back to the age of unity, development and peace. He thinks he can make Malaysia strong again, "she added.

Siti Hasmah said even if Mahathir became the seventh prime minister, the 93-year-old politician would face a tough challenge as the nation is no longer the same as when he first assumed the post.

"Mahathir took over a prosperous Malaysia from Hussein Onn but (Mahathir's successor) Abdullah (Ahmad Badawi) and (Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) have created a mess," she added.

Siti Hasmah hopes that Hope members would work together to help Mahathir and not rely on him alone to deliver.

Mahathir's horse has 'retired'

Noting that her husband is still in good health, she said Mahathir has been forced to ride a bicycle instead of a horse since the horse has "retired".

She then joked about how Mahathir's horse had "retired" but her husband continues to remain active in politics.

Siti Hasmah, 92, also revealed that accompanying Mahathir to the numerous functions and events have taken a toll on her.

"I am definitely tired. I lie in bed not wanting to move. I follow him around not because I am good in politics but to take care and support my husband, "she said.

She quipped that she calls her own "cabinet meeting" every Wednesday to scrutinize Mahathir's schedule to ensure he is not overburdened. - mk


'Plastic bag' BN for past, 
'reusable bag' Harapan for future...

Brandishing two different bags – one plastic and the other reusable – Dr Mahathir Mohamad made a veiled call for Malaysians to confine the ruling coalition to the annals of history in the coming general election.

In a brief video clip posted on Twitter, the 93-year-old former premier weighed in on the recent promise by Selangor BN information chief Satim Diman that should it recapture the state, it would do away with the current ban on plastic and polystyrene packaging imposed by the PKR-led government.

“BN wants to reintroduce plastic bags and this will be bad for the future because of the amount of rubbish that will accumulate in this country.

“On the other hand, Pakatan Harapan wants you to use a disposable bag or reusable bag.

“So BN is for the past, (camera focuses on his right hand holding the plastic bag) dirtying the environment with plastic but Pakatan Harapan (camera focuses on his left hand with the reusable bag) is for the future, where bags like this will be reused again and again,” he added.
At present, consumers who insist on plastic bags while shopping for groceries are charged 20 sen per bag.

Satim's statement also drew criticism from DAP lawmaker Lim Lip Eng, who described it as the height of idiocy to offer free plastic bags amid the global effort to reduce plastic waste.

He also pointed out that it is not only the federal opposition-led Selangor and Penang which have such a ruling in place but also the BN-ruled Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Labuan, and Johor.

Speaking at a dialogue last week, Satim said the return of free plastic bags was part of the BN manifesto.

"This is part of the BN manifesto if BN gets back the Selangor government, no more payments for plastic bags. Do you want this?" he asked his audience.

Meanwhile, Selangor BN chief Noh Omar said that shops should pay consumers 20 sen if they bring their own bags.

"Businesses should give 20 sen to consumers who bring their own bags, and not charge those who don't bring one but want a plastic bag.

"This way, it will teach consumers about the dangers of plastic bags, which can pollute the environment," he added, saying BN would implement this if it wins the coming polls. - mk
