Going after Lynas - the danger of being overzealous

This is a press statement issued yesterday by the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (bloody long name for a ministry, if you asked me)

Take note of the words in the red circle, especially those at the end of the paragraph.

They are basically saying that Lynas Corporation was lying by claiming that its temporary licence to store its rare earth residue had been extended indefinitely while in actual fact it was only extended until Feb 15 next year.

Yup, the ministry was saying these Lynas people are bad lying people.

The ministry was referring to this earlier press statement by Lynas,

If you read carefully the words in the red circle, you would notice that Lynas didn't say anything about it getting an indefinite extension of its temporary licence.

It just said it got an extension.

I think the minister and her officers were all so fired up to get Lynas that they didn't read the statement carefully and ended up accusing the company of lying.

So, much later in the day, the ministry people, probably alerted by someone of the consequence of their overzealousness, sent out this second press statement,

See, in the red circle, there's no more accusation that Lynas was lying.

Well, of course, the DAP Minister, being the kiasu that she is, never going to admit being wrong, posted this on her Facebook page,

Hello Minister, when you are wrong, just admit it la, okay.

Next time, try not to be so overzealous just because you want to score some political points.

Because of the ministry's cock-up, I was told that all the news agencies, including Reuters had to retract their earlier stories done based on the first press statement which accused Lynas of lying.

That's quite embarrassing, okay.

Now, I'm just hoping that the review committee, despite at least one of its members being known to be supportive of the anti-Lynas movement in the past, will be fair and professional in handling their task (unlike the minister and her people).

Waiting for daybreak

Slept quite late but woke up a bit too early again.

This is not good.

Maybe I need to do another medical check-up.

Surfed around for something really interesting to comment, but can't find any.

All look the same and repetitive.

Nothing worth the effort.

Everything getting quite predictable.

Quite fucked up, actually.

I don't know why some people are trying so hard when it comes to politics.

As if it makes too much of a difference.

Okay, some make money with the contracts and such which came with the changes, but the rest have to deal with the same shit and getting the same shit as before.

And the ones who got the shit are those who tend to argue about politics as if it's a matter of life or death.

Quite stupid, if you asked me.

Maybe it's just for kicks.

Check out the comments section and you'll know what I mean.

Well, never mind.

On second thought, I don't think you should waste your time.

Actually, there's a problem with my heart.

Sometimes it hurts.

Remember someone as I was lying in the dark just now.

Missing that someone.

Really, things were tough.

Hopefully everything will be alright.

I can just pray.

That;s all.

I'm waiting for daybreak now.

Will do the stretching again.

The effort hurts quite a bit yesterday, but I need to keep on going.

Can't run yet.

Just walking for now.

Mizuno sports T-shirt bought at bargain price the other day

Need to be patient.

Need to be strong.

Khabib, what do you think of Waytha Moorthy's words?

This is interesting,

Minister claims ratifying ICERD will not affect Malays, Bumiputeras


In a statement, Waytha Moorthy assured that the government would engage all stakeholders to obtain their views on ratifying ICERD.
“The government is not rushing to ratify ICERD as it wants to gather as much feedback as possible,” he said as he dispelled speculation that ratifying the convention was intended to challenge or abolish Article 153. 
The Article touches, among others, on the special position of the Malays and Bumiputeras and the legitimate interests of other communities.
So the government is not rushing to ratify ICERD is it?

Ya, and that's just because of the uproar isn't it?

Here, read this story published by The Edge just a few days ago in case you haven't,

Govt to ratify six treaties

 including ICERD early next year 

Early next year?

This is end of October already la, and he claimed that it's not being rushed.

And these are Waytha Moorthy's words;


“I want to state that the ratification of conventions including ICERD is in line with Pakatan Harapan (PH)'s manifesto."
“The commitment is not only by me but also by the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department for Religious Affairs Datuk Mujahid Rawa. It is further strengthened with the statements of Foreign Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah and Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the United Nations General Assembly recently.”
“We need to remember that the ratification of ICERD may require the Government to modify several existing legislations and policies."

And what are those several existing legislations and policies that needed to be modified?

Ya, and he said Article 153 will not be affected.

Again, as I imagined, Khabib would say,

Well, of course the trolls will go to the comments section and call me a racist playing the racial card, Umno macai and such for writing this.

But let them be.

I'm used to them and their bullshit talk already.

Having said all that, let me tell you all that I honestly don't really care about Article 153 because I can do without it.

I'm not a poor Malay kampung folk who needs that provision to cut through the barriers imposed by all the other invisible racial discrimination in our multi-racial society to improve myself.

Ya, I'm talking about all that bullshit such as jobs for only applicants who can speak Mandarin.

Really, I can take care of myself without that Article 153.

But what really pissed me off was the bullshit peddled by the minister.

Today says something, tomorrow says something else.

Making announcements without even doing a proper study.

Simply talk to make it as if he is doing something.

Real shit minister, if you asked me.

The same with so many other ministers these days.

It's still not so bad if they are just stupid, but in this ICERD matter, the minister was also irresponsible and highly likely trying to promote a malicious agenda.

I hope Dr Mahathir will be even more careful in the selection of his future Cabinet.

I shudder to think of a possible Anwar's Cabinet because I think it will be even worse.

A probable new dawn for Malaysian journalism

I agree with my blogging captain Rocky that

Umno selling off its shares in Utusan and

 Media Prima (is not a bad thing at all)

For me, it's the best thing that could happen to especially those media outlets, and Malaysian journalism as a whole.

I have repeatedly pointed out in this blog, that those media outlets were dying and their cause of impending death was the stranglehold of press freedom by the powers that be over the last few decades.

Please check the archive of this blog, if you don't believe me.

And now all those nonsense look set to end and I'm sincerely happy about it.

It's the best chance for those media outlets to regain their credibility.

My hope is for the journalists of those media outlets and others to practice true journalism without the interference of politicians such as in the past.

That's also why I wrote this last post about the Malaysian media,

Hopefully, Mus will give the middle finger to any PH politician, minister or media handler who tries to dictate how Media Prima news outlets should publish their stories.

Even if Dr Mahathir calls for some favours which could possibly jeopardise journalistic integrity of Media Prima news outlets, I hope  Mus will say;

"I'm sorry Tun. We can't do that. That's against our journalistic principles and ethics. Furthermore, our duty as journalists is to safeguard the rakyat's interests and nothing else."

I expect nothing less than that from Mus, Ku Seman and other journalists like them once they control those media outlets.

Yes,  Rocky was totally right when he wrote;
For journalism or the people to benefit at all from this, though, Umno's exit from Utusan and Media Prima must mark the start of an end to the ownership of mass media by any and all political parties AND their proxies. And puppets. 

Do bear in mind that the journalists I mentioned in my post were considered heroes of the Pakatan people because they went against the BN establishment in the run up to the 14th general election.

At that time they said that the media outlets were shackled by the powers that be.

I have no problem with that at all as I have similar complaint.

If you bother to check the archive of this blog you would find that I have always been harsh towards those who controlled the media at that time.

Well, now that Pakatan is in power, it's to be seen if the journalists aligned with them, who now control the media outlets would remain partisan or revert back to their neutral journalist self.

Of course my hope is that they become true journalists whose only loyalty is to the Malaysian public instead of any political party.

Otherwise it's just going to be the same shit again, with maybe just a different stinkin' smell.

As for the Umno people who are against the decision to withdraw from the media outlets, they should realise that owning Utusan and Media Prima is not going to help their cause by much.

Come on guys, you all don't even know how to use those media outlets to your advantage.

In fact, you all just made it worse for your cause by the way you used those newspapers and television stations back then.

And you all dragged those media outlets into the longkang in the process.

I wrote this way back in March 2014, less than a year after GE13 and a long way before the Dr Mahathir versus Najib fight which led to the Umno's knock-out in GE14 last May (please click on the link to read).

Stupid media strategy leads

 BN into the longkang

Yup, they never listen, and true enough, into the longkang they went.


That's why they should just let those media outlets go.

Just concentrate on being a good opposition and pray that the rakyat see everything when Pakatan starts to fuck up.

For that, they should of course reserve their best prayer for the media of New Malaysia to be truly free and neutral to report all that so that the rakyat can see.

Okay, I know, freeing the media is part of Pakatan's manifesto, and Pakatan is lousy at keeping its promises, but who knows, maybe Mus, Ku Seman and the gang will really practice true journalism and give their middle finger to any attempt to control them.

Yea, maybe that will really happen.

I'm particularly looking forward to see them going against Anwar's media boys who inherited the place of his obnoxious team of the 1990s when he was the deputy PM. This is especially so in the event Anwar really takes over the PM seat from Dr Mahathir.

I'm quite sure that Mus, Ku Seman and the gang still remember how the big media bosses of that decade were bullied by Anwar and his people. Of course some became rich in return for allowing their head to be stepped upon but that's another story for another day.

Well, all the best to the new set of people at those media outlets.

Oh, by the way, Umno people should really just forget fighting their battle using the traditional media and instead try to improve their social media strategy and efforts.

If Pakatan can exploit the social media when they were the opposition, Umno people must believe that they can do the same as well.

And please la, stop spending money on those dick heads currently claiming themselves to be Umno's cyber generals. Find proper ones with sincere heart who believe in the struggle to lead the team.

Okay, enough of that. This post is getting very long already and I'm starting to get a headache.

I'm going back to watch MMA fights on You Tube.

More fun.

Here, watch this;

See, more fun, right?

Kelantan, a failed state?

I laughed quite a bit when I read this,

Guan Eng regrets Kelantan PAS
 leadership's biased reactions


Lim also questioned why the strong and harsh reactions were not shown by the Kelantan PAS leadership when former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced on Jan 28,  that the Kelantan government had to depend on the financial aid from the federal government to pay the wages of the state civil servants.

“Instead, when I, as the Finance Minister, made the same statement, the PAS leadership went to extreme so as to accuse me of holding grudges against PAS when all I did was saying that Kelantan government is a failed state in terms of economy as it is unable to pay the wages of state civil servants,” he said.

Basically, he was saying "Najib can, why I cannot?"

That's being so childish, okay.

However, I think what made the Kelantan Pas leaders being so pissed off with Guan Eng was the way he said those things about their state.

You all know lah Guan Eng....very arrogant and irritating most of the time.

For one thing, the supposedly evil Najib didn't use the word "failed state" to describe Kelantan.

I don't like Pas either, but I also wouldn't use those words to describe the Pas-ruled state.

It's just not right, okay.

I do wonder what the late Nik Aziz would have thought now about the guy he once fondly described as akin to Khalifah Umar Abdul Aziz calling Kelantan, which he led as MB for many years, a failed state.

Ya, back then when DAP and Pas were together in Pakatan Rakyat, Guan Eng never said such things.

Please click on this link to really understand what is actually a failed state,

Failed States

Failed states can no longer perform basic functions such as education, security, or governance, usually due to fractious violence or extreme poverty. Within this power vacuum, people fall victim to competing factions and crime, and sometimes the United Nations or neighboring states intervene to prevent a humanitarian disaster. 

No matter how backward and poor you think Kelantan is, the state is actually not the same at all as Somalia, Afghanistan or Syria.

And no matter how bad you think Pas people are, they are not like those Islamic State or Taliban people.

Really, Kelantan is still okay.

It's not much worse than states such as Terengganu, Kedah and Perlis.

Just because these states need grants from the Federal government doesn't mean they are failed states.

After all, Malaysia is a federation and therefore it's the federal government's duty to make sure all the states function for the good of the people of the state, who are all Malaysians just like the rest of us.

Well, at least that's how it was during the previous administration.

Don't know lah how it is now that it's Malaysia Baru.

Maybe the concept has changed.

Maybe now if a state doesn't have enough revenue, a federal minister has the right to throw insults such as calling it a failed state.

I'm sure it would be called "being transparent" or "honest opinion" or "sincere remark".

Anyway, I'm actually tempted to touch on the fact that Kelantan has always been exclusively governed by Malay Muslims....but then again, I don't want to be accused of trying to play the race and religious cards.

You know lah, in this Malaysia Baru, it's best not to use the words Malays and Muslims too much or at all.

Interesting statement by Dr Mahathir on Anwar

This is an interesting angle taken by Singapore's Straits Times over Dr Mahathir's interview yesterday,

No guarantee on successor, says Malaysian PM Mahathir


"I will go one day and surely there will be a replacement. If the people want Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, they have the right to have Anwar.
"I cannot guarantee it… all I can do is I promise that after I resign, Anwar will take over, but it will be up to the people to choose," said the 93-year-old prime minister.
The way I read it, Dr Mahathir was saying that ultimately, the people will decide whether Anwar will replace him as prime minister.

Actually, it's rather odd that he puts it that way.

That's because it's more or less putting the Dr Mahathir-Anwar succession plan out in the open without any definite end game.

For me, Dr Mahathir's message is that despite his agreement with Anwar, the rakyat still have a choice over the matter.

In what way? I don't know.

Maybe there will even be an early snap general election.......hey, anything can happen. With Dr Mahathir, everything is possible, okay.

After all, he said it's for the people to decide on Anwar when he steps down as PM about one and a half year from now as promised.

Come to think of it, that should be the way as Anwar will need a fresh mandate to lead the country.

GE14 was clearly a Dr Mahathir's show.

A huge bulk of Pakatan's votes were from his supporters, many coming from even hardcore Umno supporters.

Those votes were the true reason for the new ruling coalition's landslide victory.

And they are for Dr Mahathir, not Anwar.

So, if Anwar wants to prove that the rakyat do indeed want him to take over from Dr Mahathir as PM, then he should have his own show.

Well, at least that's how I see it.

Otherwise, it's just Anwar riding on Dr Mahathir's back to Putrajaya.

Seriously, how many of you all actually voted Pakatan because you want Anwar to become PM?

Ya, seriously.

The PD by-election?

Well, I borrowed Khabib's answer for that one,

Sunday 21 October 2018

Getting fit, be humble

I'm going shopping with my cousin today.

Need to buy myself a pair of proper training shoes.

Need to exercise.

Probably even need to enlist at a gym.

Really, I'm getting quite fat and unfit.

I keep wasting time doing nothing these days  instead of doing healthy things.

Yesterday I spent almost the whole day playing snooker on my phone

and watching a stupid Korean drama

I was not even bothered to check on the political nonsense as usual. It's getting too stupid and disgusting anyway.

However, it just so happened that I watched some MMA fights on YouTube later last night and they actually inspired me to get fit again.

Especially this less than five minutes fight which took place just earlier this month

That's fun, isn't it?

I wish I can fight like that.

Maybe sit on top of one of my haters and punch the living daylight out of her/him like that.

Hahaha....I know that's wishing too much.

I learnt silat gayong and was quite good at it when I was a teenager, but that's a very long time ago.

Now, I'll be happy just to be fit again.

And I must always try to remember what Khabib said

Yes, be humble.

Coffee shop rambling

Wanted to go home but the traffic jam is always very bad at this hour.

Google Map just told me that it would take me more than an hour to reach home if I go now.

It's always like this on Friday evening.

So, I'm sitting alone here killing time at this coffee shop.

Not much to write actually.

Except maybe the Zahid's prosecution today.

But honestly, I'm not really interested in the story.

They are just doing what I expecting them to do.

I believe they will charge all the other Umno leaders too.

They are going to kill the party altogether.

It's exactly what I told my friends who are formerly with Umno but joined Pribumi before GE14.

They all said that they just wanted to defeat Umno to get rid of Najib and his gang.

That Umno will be revived after its defeat.

Of course now they know that's not going to be the case.

Now they want Umno dead.

Now they are saying that all Malays must unite under Pribumi.

They wanted all those Umno members to join the new party.

Well, Malays have never been united even under Umno.

But it doesn't really matter to me.

Despite what my haters said, I was never really under Umno.

Never a party member, nor employed by the party.

Ya, I used to help them, but I don't really take instructions from them.

I prefer it like that.

So, I definitely wouldn't join Pribumi.

I wouldn't join the other parties either.

No reason for me to do that.

I'm just going to do or write whatever I think is right.

What people think of me doesn't really matter.

What matter to me now is that I can earn a decent living, not harm others and hold on to what I believe to be good ideals.

No need for me to crack my head over all these political nonsense.

I intend just to do the best that my abilities permit me.

If I feel down, I'll just pray to Allah for the best.

If Malaysia Baru turns out to be fucked up, it's because that's what the country deserves.

The same if it turns out okay.

No need for me to worry about it too much.

After all, I don't have super power to change things much.

I'm just an insignificant anonymous blogger.

Okay, I better stop rambling.

Maybe I'll go to a nearby KFC for dinner and hang over there until the traffic improves.

All important first round goes to Lynas people (updated)

This is indeed good news

Neutral experts for Lynas review committee

I'm taking this in good faith. That the neutral experts are really neutral and expert in the field. And that no one will influence them on how to do their work and conclude their findings.

I think Dr Mahathir must have put pressure on environment minister Bee Yin to do this one properly.

I imagined the handsome old man saying this to Bee Yin,

"This is number one bullshit. You are making us look bad by wanting to put that crazy Fuziah and nut case Wong Tuck in the committee. Put real experts in there if you really need to do this nonsense."

Something like that.

I have the suspicion that Dr Mahathir thinks all these Lynas radiation thingy was just nonsense. Otherwise he would have said something about it back then when the likes of Fuziah and Wong Tuck started to ride on the issue to win the general election in 2013.

I'm quite sure he didn't say anything to support those two and will never do so.

You can read my concerns earlier over the issue at these links;

Then of course came this good news,

MP Fuziah withdraws from Lynas review committee

Don't know how Kuantan people can vote her to be their 3rd term MP. Real crazy.

Well, as I wrote earlier, all Lynas wants is for the review committee to be neutral.

That's because they were sure they will win the case if the review is to be done professionally and its findings are based on evidence and facts.

Now that they won that part of the battle, things must look better for Lynas workers and others who support them.

I wish these people all the best.

InsyaAllah, they will still have their job, business and other good things after the committee had done with its review.

UPDATES at 13:03


Dr Mahathir actually did say something previously about Lynas.

I just found this one by Bernama dated Dec 18, 2012

Mahathir agrees with government on Lynas

Kuala Lumpur, Dec 18: Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed has agreed with the government's decision to continue with the Lynas rare earth processing plant in Gebeng, Kuantan and disagreed with protesters that the plant was dangerous.
Condemning the action of protesters over the heavily politicised rare earth plant in Kuantan, he said the nation needed to accept that it was not harmful, and important for the country to reap the benefits from the existence of rare earth in the country.
“I think we need to stick to the fact that it is true that there are nuclear materials that are very dangerous and need to be handled carefully and with responsibility.
“Rare earth is not dangerous like nuclear…rare earth is not yet known to cause diseases among users of its end product,” he said in his speech at the Chemical Industries Council of Malaysia (CICM) Responsible Care Awards 2011/2012 dinner, last night.
He said rare earth, used as a component for batteries and magnets, was a very important material for the electronic industry.
He said that the process undertaken at the Lynas plant was not a dangerous process and its safety had been assured by the world’s best expert and certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Meanwhile, Responsible Care Awards 2011/2012 saw Petronas subsidiary, Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd, winning six gold, four silver and 13 merit awards under the Corporate Awards category for the Six Codes of Management Practice.
“As a chemicals industry leader, Petronas Chemicals is constantly vigilant in observing health, safety and environment standards and continuously strives for the best practices,” CICM president/chief executive officer Dr Abd Hapiz Abdullah said.
The awards are the chemical industry’s unique global initiative to drive continuous improvement in all aspects of safety, health and environmental performance. - Bernama

Khabib, what do you think of Anwar's victory in Port Dickson?

For me, the biggest story the past week is not Anwar and his antics in PD.

The biggest story for me the past week is this guy

In case you don't know him, he's

Khabib Nurmagomedov

the light weight world champion of mix martial art (MMA).

What I like most about him other than his fighting prowess is that he is a good person, devout Muslim, and always humble attitude. He can also be quite funny sometimes.

He successfully defended his title in a fight the other Saturday, beating MMA superstar

Conor McGregor

I really enjoyed watching the fight....and the brawl after the fight.

That includes the built up to the fight too,

and what happened after Khabib's victory

Well, I hope to see more of Khabib's victories in future.

On the light side, since I watched his victory over McGregor, I did imagine asking Khabib this,

"Khabib, what do you think of Anwar's victory in Port Dickson?"

And I imagined this is his reply,


Things they hope you'll not notice about PD results

Some of you all got so excited about Anwar winning the PD by-election yesterday and started commenting on it at my last post which has nothing to do with the nonsense at all.

So, I think I better do one a bit about it so that you all can comment properly instead of trolling at a totally unrelated post which is rather irritating.

I have half in mind not to publish them but considering that you all had took the trouble to write, I just let them through.

Anyway, please try to refrain from doing it again as I will probably treat them as spam next time.

Okay, first, this is the headline of Bernama's report;

Anwar wins with a bigger majority in PD

Read carefully the first paragraph,

PORT DICKSON,  Oct 13 (Bernama) –  Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidate Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim won today’s Port Dickson by-election with an even bigger majority than in the 14th general election  (GE14).

The use of the word "even" emphasis the significance of the bigger majority.

Actually, it's a kiss ass report.

If you go to the Bernama website and read their PD by-election reports, you would understand what I'm trying to tell you.

Well, never mind. I understand that the people there need to keep their job.

Okay, other than the highlighted bigger majority to show how popular Anwar is, let's look at the statistics a little bit closer and compare them with those of GE14.

Please click on this link;

Port Dickson by-election

Three things to note:

1. Turn out 
PD by-election : 44,136 or 58.25 per cent
GE14 : 62,548 or 83.16 per cent

What I think : Almost half of the voters in PD don't really care about the by-election even though it was supposed to usher in Anwar as the new prime minister of Malaysia. Well, they should be more excited because their MP is going to be the PM. Over 18,000 voters during GE14 didn't turn up for the by-election. They were definitely more enthusiastic during GE14 to put Dr Mahathir as PM.

2. The votes that Anwar received
Anwar's votes at the by-election : 31,016
PH candidate's votes during GE14 : 36,225

What I think : About 5,000 PH supporters during GE14 couldn't care less about Anwar. Hey, PH supporters in PD, it was not a normal by-election, okay. It's Anwar for PM. How come you all gave that nobody PH's GE14 candidate more votes than Anwar?

3. The votes of Anwar's nearest rival
Pas candidate's votes in the by-election : 7,456
Pas candidate's votes for GE14 : 6,596

What I think : If the PH candidate was only to face a Pas candidate in GE14, his majority should be 29,631 and not 17,710. Anwar's majority in the by-election is 23,560. So, Anwar's trumpeted bigger majority is not really a big deal. If BN had contested or campaigned for the Pas candidate, Anwar will still win but he may not look very good at the end of polling day. Maybe you all should ask Zahid again why BN boycotted the by-election. I mean really really ask him.

Okay, you all Anwar's fanboys, knock yourselves out.

Najib the troll

Yesterday, there's this story by national news agency Bernama,

Police confirm Najib's aide lodged police report

excerpts ;

Yesterday, Najib in his official Facebook status, said he had asked his aide to lodge a police report to enable a police investigation to be initiated regarding the allegation that he was involved in the case of the murder of several individuals including Mongolian model, Altantuya Shaariibuu and Deputy Public Prosecutor, Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais.

I was like, what the hell this Najib is trying to do.

Honestly, I don't follow Najib's FB page. In fact I don't even have any active FB account. Last time I set up one was just to play Zynga Poker game.

So I asked my best friend, who is a homemaker living in Kuantan what was going on.

She's quite a fan of Najib's FB page these days. Said she enjoys Najib's trolling and think he's quite funny after no longer being the PM.

Instead of explaining to me, she forwarded this piece, which writer I honestly don't know;


Bagi yang tak mengikuti apa kisahnya, ini kronologi peristiwa:

1. Lim Kit Siang tuduh Najib terlibat pembunuhan Teoh Beng Hock, Altantuya dan Hussain Najadi.

2. Najib kata dia tak terlibat.

3. LKS tak puas hati dan kata akan minta gomen mulakan siasatan baru.

4. Najib kata dia setuju dan dia mohon ia dipercepatkan.

5. LKS u-turn kata dia takkan buat dan kalau Najib ikhlas, Najib sendiri dah biat siasatan masa dia PM.

6. Najib kata zaman dia PM memang ada siasatan dan siasatan dapati dia tak bersalah. Pembangkang masa tu juga yang tak puas hati. Kata mahkamah kena beli. Jadi buatlah sekarang ketika pembangkang dah jadi gomen.

7. LKS taichi lagi kata Najib tak faham dan tak rasional.

8. Najib boring, dia kata nanti dia suruh pembantu dia sendiri lapor pasal diri dia dekat polis.

Kesimpulan: Najib lapor Najib.

Ok. Kenapa den up pasal benda ni ada 2 sebab.

Pertamanya den faham rasa frustration orang menuduh kita bertahun-tahun, cerita buruk apa semua bagai tapi bukti satu apa pun yillek. Cerita pasal TP makan dedak amik dana apa benda semua ni dah selalu kena.

Dijaja cerita tu diseluruh pelusuk media sosial tapi bila diminta bukti, bersembunyi, taichi, pusing sana pusing sini. Dijemput datang ke pejabat untuk tengok akaun sendiri pun depa tak nak.

It's frustrating and annoying.

Keduanya, den menulis benda ni sebab Najib ni selalu dicop sebagai kepit dan 'no balls'. Meh den share sikit pandangan den.

Den antara orang yang sangat vokal menyokong Tun M di media sosial dulu semasa Tun serang Pak Lah. Lebih-lebih lagi dengan cerita Budak Tingkat 4, den pun berapi-api setuju Pak Lah step down.

Lepas tu Najib naik.

Den punya doa masa Najib naik tu cuma satu; "Berikan Malaysia seorang pemimpin sekuat Tun Dr Mahathir."

Yes, awal tu den macam korang jugak. Mashaa Allah lembiknya Najib ni. Tak garang, tak vokal, kepit-kepit, ucapan pun tak ummphh..

Den sebagai advokator untuk sejarah Melayu diangkat dan segala yang termaktub di dalam perlembagaan diperkasakan, pada awalnya amatlah tak puas hati dengan Najib ni.

Tapi apa yang mengubah persepsi den adalah fakta bahawa Najib ni bab ekonomi (ada orang panggil Najibnomics) dan bab 'foreign diplomacy' tersangatlah power.

Den tengok fakta-fakta ekonomi:

- Zaman Najib rizab negara naik malah pegangan ekuiti PNB yang mewakili Bumiputera pun naik.
- SSM mencatatkan kenaikan jumlah syarikat Bumiputera tumbuh macam cendawan.
- Banyak agensi-agensi usahawan Bumiputera dan dana disediakan.
- Bantuan kewangan kepada marhaen bawahan termasuk nelayan, petani dan peladang banyak diberikan yang rata-ratanya Bumiputera dapat.
- Skim perumahan dilaksanakan.
- Pusat pendidikan yang fokus pada TVET, Kolej Komuniti dan sebagainya diwujudkan sebagai sebahagian bantuan Bumiputera.
- Najib pun mengamalkan sikap terbuka, dari aspek berdagang sampailah aspek kebebasan bersuara.
- Hubungan antarabangsa menjadi baik.
- Dan macam-macam lagi.

Den dan keluarga memang beza kehidupannya. Dari keluarga susah, alhamdulillah den, adik, arwah abang, bapak dan mama, kehidupan bertambah baik.

Benda tu buat den fikir...

Pemimpin yang kuat ni tak semestinya dia kena pandai berucap, suara kena degor-degor, ayat kena tajam dan lantang. Pemimpin yang baik ni adalah pemimpin yabg buat kerja.

Yang tunjukkan melalui kerja-kerja yang dia buat dan persetankan apa orang nak cakap pasal diri dia.

Eh bukan calang-calang orang dapat reverse timebomb negara, beli balik semua IPP dan konsesi tol yang berat sebelah tau. Tumpu pada prasarana dan infra rakyat, dan bukan gedung-gedung elit untuk orang kaya-kaya saja nikmati. Bukan semua pemimpin yang nak kongsi kekayaan negara dengan rakyat tau.

Bertahun-tahun pemimpin negara cerita pasal GST tapi tak berani buat, dia selamba buat walaupun tau tak popular tetapi sangatlah perlu untuk memastikan ekonomi negara pacu ke depan. Rata-rata bisnes berkembang bawah dia.

Itu yang buat den akui Najib ni pemimpin yang baik.

Bukan pemimpin terbaik sepanjang zaman, bukan tak ada cacat cela, bukan tak ada kelemahan. Tapi overall, dia jaga Malaysia dan rakyatnya dengan baik.

Kalah Najib ni bab persepsi dan imej je lah. Nampak lembik.

Lebih teruk lagi orang keliling dia dan orang yang dapat segala kemudahan sebab diorang pun tak backup dia. Plus pasal 1MDB tulah yang den masih berpegang pada kepercayaan den bahawa its a corporate shit. Nothing more nothing less.

Pada den sekurang-kurangnya Najib tak senyapkan apa yang jadi macam syarikat-syarikat besar lain yang lepas di bail out pun gagal. Najib tukar Arul Kanda untuk jaga dan bisnes mula nak nampak kembali ok.

Tapi tulah.. Sayangnya baru nak tunjukkan hasil optimum lepas siap TRX. Tak sempat..

Apa pun, ni dia dah lapang, kerjanya kuat troll pulak. Tajam pulak tu.

Hari ni troll level dewa-dewa, NAJIB LAPOR NAJIB.

Good luck DS.

Shutting down Lynas may tilt the balance of global power (updated)

A friend who is a former newspaper editor the other day asked me to do more research on rare earth after he read this previous posting of mine,

Lynas' worries - the risk of not being factual and objective

He said the issue could actually have global impact as processed rare earth is a vital raw material in the arms industry.

He said the possible shutting down of the Lynas plant near Kuantan, Pahang could actually tilt the balance of global military power as currently China produces over 90 per cent of rare earth with yearly output of 105,000 metric tonne.

A distant second is Australia with 20,000 metric tonne per year. This is the amount being processed at the Lynas plant.

According to my friend, the rare earth processed here is critical for the "free world" in the event China stops the supply of its rare earth to countries such as those in Europe, US, Japan and South Korea.

Aside from being important to the production of peaceful electronic and IT products such as our smart phones and computers, rare earth is also critical in the production of hi-tech weapon systems.

In the event of hostility with the West, my friend said China is almost certain to stop its export of rare earth to hostile nations, thus cutting off the production of their weapons.

"For such a scenario, the rare earth produced at the Lynas plant in Kuantan will be more important than ever for the free democratic countries," he said.

He went on to say that China and its allies such as Russia will benefit from the possible closure of the Lynas plant as they would have almost total control of the world's rare earth production, thus rendering the West at their mercy even during peace time.

"You should try to find out whether there's more to it than what it seems with this effort to close down the Lynas plant. Who actually funded those people who claimed to be environmentalists?" he said.

"And don't you think it's odd that the environment minister delegated the responsibility of handling this case to an MP who is a deputy minister in charge of religion? Furthermore, Fuziah is the MP of Kuantan while the Lynas plant is in the constituency of Indera Mahkota," he added.

The MP of Indera Mahkota is Saifuddin Abdullah, who is also the Foreign Minister.

To be honest,  I was a bit lost when he told me all that as I'm not really a technical person.

So, as usual I googled.

I typed "rare earth missiles" and at the very top is this,
5 Military Technologies Reliant on Rare Earth Elements 

Then there's also this from just last week,
China Dominates Rare Earth Mineral Supply to Sabotage US Military

There are many others if you care to google on the subject matter yourself.

Okay, maybe many of you all don't like the US and its allies and feel that it's good to help China by shutting down the Lynas plant. However, as my friend argued, an imbalance in the geo-strategic position of nations will not be good for the whole world in the long run.

I think even Dr Mahathir would agree on this point.

And to possibly have people claiming to care for the environment  but actually working for the interest of other country is not good either.

I can't possibly dig more like what my friend asked me. I'm a nobody, okay. For this one,  I'm just hoping that someone with authority will read this and consider doing the digging for the truth in the interest of the country.

By the way, all this reminded me of a conversation I had with the well known Indian-born US journalist Fareed Zakaria a few years ago.

I remember these words of him very well - "Everyone respects China, but no one really wants to go and live there. Given the choice, those who wished to migrate will choose US over China. You can even ask that among Malaysians of Chinese ethnicity. I'm quite sure most of them will choose US."

Well, the reason is quite obvious. No matter what are our grievances with US and its allies, we have to admit that they are the "free world".

I actually asked my mother to make the choice back then, just for fun.

"Ma, you prefer to migrate to China or US?"

Despite her being proud of her Chinese heritage,  I was not surprised when she said,

Dr Mahathir may save the 20,000 jobs

Thanks to Dr Mahathir,

Gamuda, MMC shares rise after decision

 to review MRT2 cancellation


In a statement yesterday, MMC Gamuda KVMRT (T) Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between Gamuda and MMC Corp, said it welcomes the decision by the Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, to review the cancellation of the MRT 2 Underground Contract with MMC Gamuda.

Well, unlike the DAP leaders controlling the Finance Ministry, Dr Mahathir knows that 20,000 people losing their job is not a good thing.

Maybe Dr Mahathir had considered the review because he  read these sort of reports,

Petition to save MRT2 jobs attracts

 25,000 responses within a day


“Five months ago, we voted for a better Malaysia. We never polled to become jobless. Never have I ever been so frustrated and disappointed,” wrote MMC-Gamuda’s quantity surveyor Fatin Syazwani at Facebook.
“During the election, we were hoping for a government that will provide stability and opportunities. Please don’t tell us to start a business. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea,” wrote MMC-Gamuda engineer Farid Khosim.
Hopefully, those workers will still have their jobs after the new round of negotiations between the government and MMC-Gamuda.

As for the DAP leaders' lack of compassion, I'm actually not surprised by their attitude.

Even their fanboys have the same mentality.

These are some of the comments on the matter that I received from them at my last posting

i will never engage these former mmc gamuda people, look like even my project go bust i still owe them a living...they shud be more enterprising mcm dumbos pandai cari makan oops shud not be revealed dumbos trade secrets wakakaka

  1. mcm mmc gamuda macais who blamed PH for busting them, will annie + other macais also blame PH for busting umno LOL
  1. let say msian population 30 million, imagine 29,980,000 hv to suffer & pay for these 20,000 overpriced mrt2, this is really sad sobbing :(
  2. #saveMRT2 smack of #savedumbos+cronies using those sohai mmc gamuda employees as sacrificial pawns
Sometimes I'm not so sure why they have to be so arrogant.

There's really no need to be like that.

Okay, I know I can't really blame them 100 per cent for such an attitude because they were probably just trying to behave and look like their top man Guan Eng.....

.....but seriously, they really don't have to be like that, okay.

Just be yourselves DAP people. I know that some of you are really nice and good people.

I know that it may be fashionable for you all to try to emulate your Guan Eng idol like that Melaka Adun, but I think you all also know that there is no real need to be so inhumane by calling people who are on the brink of losing their jobs "sohai" and "macai".

As you may noticed by now, most of the MMC-Gamuda workers actually voted for Pakatan in GE14.

They must be feeling very rotten if they really lose their job, okay.
