Sifting through the garbage of sex video scandal

Someone asked me last night as to why I was not writing something about the Azmin sex video nonsense.

Well, actually it's because initially I only have theories and not real facts about it.

I was trying to learn more about it as I wouldn't want to write something I'm not really sure of.

As of now, one thing is for sure, it's part of the intensifying fight between the camps of Dr Mahathir and Anwar over the promised transition of power which looks more than ever is not going to happen.

Yes, it's as written by some prominent bloggers over the past two days.

After all, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

Just look at who were making the statements over it.

I was actually told that it's Anwar making a pre-emptive strike to avoid himself being hit with something similar.

At the same time, the hit was directed at Dr Mahathir's preferred successor to undermine any attempt to immediately promote Azmin.

Quite intense, right.

And more to come soon from this fight.

At the moment, it's more or less a stand off.

Anyway, I need to caution you all on the importance of reading carefully to differentiate between the garbage and actual facts of the scandal as presented by our mainstream media, which I feel has not really changed much so far under Pakatan's rule.

Okay, let me help you all with this story by national news agency Bernama;

PKR rejects heinous and dirty politics - Anwar

These are actually about all the facts from the story while the rest are garbage;

excerpts 1 -

Anwar said the PKR fully supported the investigation by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on the allegations hurled at Mohamed Azmin and hoped that the process would be carried out fairly and thoroughly.

A sexual video was viralled in the social media purportedly involving Mohamed Azmin, who is also the Minister of Economic Affairs, and an accusation that a company's fund was channelled into the account belonging to the minister.


That's because Anwar wants Azmin to be investigated so as to put more pressure on him.

excerpts 2 -

To another question, he said for the moment no action would be taken against the PKR member, Muhammad Haziq Abdul Aziz who claimed that he was the individual in the sex video.

Of course la no action will be taken against the good boy.

As for the rest of the Bernama's story, they are just garbage you all should ignore. This Bernama's picture also;


Well, I don't blame the Bernama journalists and editors. I know that they are trying their best under the circumstances.

They need to keep their jobs and provide for their families. Really, I sincerely mean it.

As to, is it really Azmin in the video?

Why the hell should I care, okay. It really doesn't matter to me.

However, if you all care, then that's your right to be so. Suka hati korang lah.

Anyway, I'm just glad that except for one or two stupid pricks who tried to claim credit over the nonsense, Umno and it's friends have stayed away from it.

They should continue doing their own things.

Let the Pakatan people fight their own dirty war.

Who knows, maybe we can even have a snap election as early as next year.

The bocor airport for rakyat marhaen

This is bad,

'Waterfall' in klia2 - Netizens react 

to burst pipe at Gate K8


excerpts;

"OMG. In @ChangiAirport they have waterfall in the airport. #klia2 also building our own waterfall ke?" tweeted @rayongtim.
His tweet was in response to another Twitter user sharing a footage of a collapsed ceiling with water gushing at a lounge in klia2.
The footage posted by @UncleAhBoon was captioned, "This is serious...klia2..."
I have to congratulate NST for putting that part into the story instead of just the PR statement by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) which was the main highlight of the report by Malaysian Insight;
MAHB lauds speedy action to fix burst pipe at klia2
Sorry ya, I can only give you all Malaysian Insight's headline but not their story because unlike the NST's one, you have to subscribe to read their story.

Anyway, I think MAHB should not congratulate itself for fixing a problem which shouldn't be there in the first place as well as coming up with excuses as to why such a problem happened.

It should have make sure such things never happened.

Key word here is "maintenance".

You all at MAHB tak bothered nak buat maintenance ke sampai paip pecah dan bumbung nak roboh?

Or is it just at KLIA2?


Because it's an airport for budget travellers?

Less wealthy travellers get bocor airport, is it?

Is this part of being Malaysia Baru?

And KLIA2 is very new compared to KLIA. How come can bocor?

Actually, I heard all kind of bad things about KLIA2. Even the toilets were said to be inferior than those in KLIA.

Now I'm beginning to believe that they were true.

I think if I have the time. I'll go check it out one of these days because I have never been to KLIA2.

Whatever it is we shouldn't have a leaking and roof collapsing airport, okay.

Really, that's just not right MAHB.

You all can't have this don't care attitude even with that almost total monopoly of airports in this country.

After all, you all charge the travellers using KLIA2 with the same airport charges/taxes as those in KLIA.

I don't know whether you all realise it, but I was made to understand that almost half of the amount we paid for our plane tickets went to things like airport taxes/charges.

Why can't they make use of that money to ensure we have good airports....instead of bocor airports.

By the way,  the Tourism minister and several others are now making noises about expensive airfares such as reported in these stories;

PKB gesa syarikat penerbangan kaji semula kadar tambang Sabah-Semenanjung

Harga siling, dasar langit terbuka murahkan tiket penerbangan

The way I understand it, they were mostly demanding for the airlines to reduce the airfares.

Obviously they were ignorant of the fact that it's the other things included in the airfares that made up almost half of the ticket prices.

Yup, those extras such as airport charges/taxes for the use of leaking, collapsing airports made the airfares more expensive than they should be, okay.

And those people should check back this story on a statement by the Transport minister in September last year,

Tiada harga siling tambang penerbangan

Well, that's more or less the government saying it's not reducing those other charges.

So, if the government doesn't care to do the necessary to reduce airfares, why should we expect the airlines to be more benevolent?

A doctor in the house Part 2

This is a comment I received just now at my last post;

Politischeiss8 June 2019 at 18:25
Da Mahn has spoken - FULL STOP

All the noises, bleats and whines which have followed are just like farts against thunder.

"Decision on Latheefa’s appointment final, says Dr Mahathir"

https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2019/06/08/decision-on-latheefas-appointment-final-says-dr-mahathir/1760299

I almost laugh when I read that.

Hey, what did you expect? Quite funny, right.

Let me make it easier for you all, just click on this link to read the whole story;

Mahathir says Latheefa’s appointment final


Nonetheless, I think we must particularly take note of this part of the story;

excerpts

Dr Mahathir said this when asked to comment on media reports that PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was of the opinion that the Prime Minister should clarify Latheefa’s appointment as the new MACC chief.

It's basically Dr Mahathir saying "Shut up Anwar, I'm in charge and I don't have to answer to you or anyone else".

Well, the fact that Dr Mahathir is not even considering Anwar's opinion for him to clarify the appointment was quite hurting for Anwar, I guess.

This is like in the 1980s and 1990s, when Dr Mahathir was fully in charge.

I believe that Anwar could feel the chill going down his spine when he learnt of the handsome old man's statement.

He should know now that Dr Mahathir will whack him again if he tries to get in the way, just like it was back then.

I now even suspect that he appointed Latheefa to that post just to send that message to Anwar.

Surely Dr Mahathir got some aces up his sleeve now.

If I'm Anwar, I really better back off.

Let Dr Mahathir runs the country as long as he wants and in any way he pleases.

Really Anwar, it's not worth going to jail again at your age now.

Well, this is what the majority of people who voted Pakatan Harapan in GE14 wanted - Dr Mahathir in full control of things, just like it used to be back then.

Right isn't it?

For the young ones who were not yet born or still small kids at that time, get use to these sort of things.

Try to get one of those books on Mahathirism and read it.

Understand it well, so that you all can adjust yourself to this Malaysia Baru.

Oh, and I think they should start on the Part 2 of this book;


Cheers.

Waiting for the implosion (updated)

UPDATES

Yup, it's starting already.

Anwar wants Mahathir to clarify Latheefa’s appointment


ORIGINAL POST

On the same day Latheefa Koya was appointed as MACC head, which was on Raya eve, there were these other stories of Dr Mahathir's strongmen;


Rein in supporters pressuring Dr M 

to quit, PM's pol-sec tells Anwar



Ministers should step up and stop relying 

on Mahathir, says PM's media advisor


The first one is on Zahid Md Arip and second on Datuk Kadir Jasin.

Zahid was quite harsh, actually.

excerpts;

Zahid, in his response, used an analogy of a mangy dog which barks at passersby in a neighbourhood when it senses its master’s frustrations.
“The dog is not barking for the first time, it has barked many times, this being the latest. Whoever passes by the house, it will bark, it has a sickness,” he said.
Asked what “sickness” the dog has, Zahid said it has “penyakit kalah di bahagian” (sickness from loss of the division).
“It’s not just one person, I hear there is another, Klang or Kapar. I see this as a plot to pressure Dr Mahathir, it will not stop here and it will continue after Hari Raya.”
Zahid said the dog cannot be calmed by anyone but its master.
“So I hope the master will speak up to silence them, if not people will say that the master is in cahoots with the dog,” he said, adding that he hoped this was not the case.
“We live in the neighbourhood together, we don’t really care if the dog barks but this seems to be going overboard to the point we are uncomfortable.”
So, Anwar's supporters are now like mangy dogs, eh Zahid.

I wonder what Anwar's people think Dr Mahathir's supporters are akin to nowadays.

Mangy swine?

My read into this is that the likes of Zahid in both Dr Mahathir and Anwar camps are all gearing up for the coming fight next year in the very likely event that there's no transition of power as promised.

Datuk Kadir, who represents the more intelligent side in Dr Mahathir's camp saw the danger of Pakatan's implosion from such a fight and tried to buy time as much as possible.

excerpts;

Commenting on the transfer of power to Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s Anwar Ibrahim, Mr Kadir recounted how he told those at the seminar that while PH’s election promises were not cast in stone, the transition from Dr Mahathir to Mr Anwar “was clearly stated and was the linchpin in the pre-election agreement”.

“I told them that they should be encouraged by Mr Anwar’s recent statements that he wasn’t in a hurry and that Dr Mahathir would continue to play a major role thereafter,” he said.
As for concerns over whether there would be any u-turn in policies after Mr Anwar takes over, Mr Kadir said this would be “unlikely”.

Yet Datuk Kadir, being among the harshest critics of Anwar during the Reformasi days of late 1990s surely knew that the fight is inevitable.

How can it be otherwise after these sort of things;


I don't think Datuk Kadir would be so naive as to believe that Anwar could truly forgive all that and will not take his revenge after he got the power to do so.

I believe he was just trying to keep the peace for now so that the fighting would not start too early before the deadline which was supposed to be in May next year.

Meanwhile, they are gathering all the bullets and power for the showdown.

Well, while all these were going on, Umno, Pas and their gang have been rather quiet, especially after their victory in Rantau.

From what I know, they are moving quietly on the ground, building strength at the grassroots level.

Better that way, I guess.

Just wait for the Pakatan implosion and meanwhile avoid making mistakes such as issuing unnecessary statements.

Yup, that's the right way to do it.

So much for MACC's independence (updated)

UPDATES

Please note that these statements were not made by Umno, Pas or their friends.

Pelantikan KP SPRM tidak dirujuk jawatankuasa Parlimen

excerpts;
"Pakatan Harapan (PH) dalam mementingkan kepentingan awam dan kebebasan SPRM, menyebut mengenai janji menerusi manifestonya bahawa SPRM perlu merujuk kepada Parlimen.
"Tanpa merujuk kepada kemampuan peribadi, integriti dan perwatakannya, pelantikan Latheefa yang juga ahli PKR, satu parti dalam kerajaan PH akan menjejaskan kepercayaan orang ramai terhadap SPRM.
excerpts;
He said he did not get any resignation letter from Latheefa, who announced that she “sent in” her resignation as ordinary member of PKR, a component party of the ruling Pakatan Harapan, yesterday with immediate effect when she was informed she would be appointed to lead the nation’s anti-corruption agency.
“As of today, her name is still in the system,” Saifuddin told Malay Mail.
When asked if ordinary PKR members need to submit resignation letters to the party secretary-general, Saifuddin said: “For this high-profile case, she should write to sec-gen. That would be the proper way to do.”

ORIGINAL POST

We, Malaysians got this news on raya eve today,

PKR’s Latheefa Koya is new MACC chief as Shukri Abdull ends contract early

Honestly, I was shocked that they were being this blatant.

Not even Umno at its worst had done such thing.

But of course, a short while later we got this follow up news

On taking MACC helm, 

Latheefa resigns from PKR and LFL


Ya, sure, with that MACC will remain independent.

Whatever.

Somehow I suspect that this is going to be part of their coming civil war when Anwar was supposed to take over the premiership from Dr Mahathir next year.

Bear in mind that Latheefa is definitely not in love with Anwar and his gang.


Well, I'm not going to write my full thought on this nonsense for now as it may spoil my mood for whatever little raya celebrations I'm supposed to enjoy.

After all, this is Malaysia Baru, so they can do whatever they want.

Malaysians voted for them what.

I'll just wait for their spins on this and have a good laugh later.

Okay guys, happy hari raya.

Cheers.

Mat Sabu's defence policy

If you read this story by The Star

Mat Sabu: Region faces complex security dynamics


or this one by FMT

US-China row affects regional stability, says Mat Sabu


which were written as reports from the IISS Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, you would probably think that there's nothing wrong with our defense minister.

He sounds quite ministerial and even a bit boring.

Actually, those stories are part of the magic tricks of our media in this age of Malaysia Baru which is begining to feel more and more like Malaysia Lama when media outlets spun their stories to make ministers look good.

Well, this is Mat Sabu in video at that premier Asia Pacific defense and security summit,


Yup, that's our defense minister.

Nice or not?

And he is the president of one of the parties in the ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition.

Okay, I'm not going to say anything about the standard of his English because I have no problem with people who speak the language that way. I'm not an arrogant Anglophile snob.

I just want you all to concentrate on the message that Mat Sabu was trying to convey....if you can understand what he was saying la.

My favourite part is when he said that the Chinese Coast Guard is bigger than our navy and because of that there's nothing we can do except to talk to them if the Chinese decide to come over and do whatever they like in our territory.

In all seriousness, if our own defense minister can say that in front of an international audience, then we may as well close down our navy and save the billions of ringgit for our country's defense.

Heck, why not close down our entire armed forces while we are at it. Let's not waste our tax payers' money.

Just roll over and die whenever anyone wants to invade our country.

Yeah, why bother, right?

Even the Singaporeans have better looking armed forces than ours. So, tell the world la that we are going to let them take over our country if they feel like it.

And I wonder what our soldiers, sailors and airmen of Angkatan Tentera Malaysia think of what Mat Sabu said at the event.

The guy who is more or less in charge of them basically said that they are quite useless.

All those sacrifices, and lives lost while defending this country over the years amount to nothing for this current defense minister.

He can't even seemed to remember how our armed forces defeated the communist insurgency, won the confrontation with Indonesia and other instances when our men and women in uniform did good in defending our country.

I don't know lah, but this sort of idiocies among the Pakatan ministers are really getting on my nerves.

And it doesn't seem to be getting any better any time soon.

Pre-raya blues

It's already raya mood now.

Many have went balik kampung, taking the whole week as holiday.

I'm not going anywhere though. Staying put in KL.

As usual, I don't really celebrate raya like most people.

Just the compulsory two or three visits of close relatives. That's all.

No baju raya, duit raya, raya open house and such.

For me, raya is time to rest.

Resting is celebration enough.

But, that's me. You all celebrate lah as according to what makes you all happy.

Tomorrow I'm planning to pay the compulsory zakat fitrah for myself and my family.

That's my routine as raya draws near.

I used to pay for my beloved too, just simply because I thought maybe Allah will give us blessing if I pay a bit extra.

I know, that's rather stupid but I just like the idea.

Anyway, this Ramadhan was not so bad.

I tried my best.

Still, I don't think I got full marks for my puasa. My puasa was definitely not perfect.

Hopefully Allah will be a bit lenient on me.

By the way, this is going to be the second raya for Malaysians under the Pakatan rule.

I wonder if people are happier compared to when raya was under BN rule.

For one thing, are preparations for raya now cheaper without GST?

You all have enough money for raya or not? Still have a job?

Well, politics aside, I hope you all are alright one way or another.

Sorry ya, today I'm not really in good mood and actually quite tired.

Someone made me very angry this afternoon until I got very exhausted.

Don't know what's wrong with me that I got so angry like that,

No energy now except for just this little bit of rambling.

Hope you all don't mind too much.

Here's a song I've been humming since this morning, Hope you all enjoy it.


Ciao.
