Now only the real Power vs power show begins…. the road to the PM’s throne.
Now only the real Power vs power show begins…. the road to the PM’s throne.
So how was the suspense? Anyone had heart attack yet? Well it’s easy to sum up most Malaysians prefer cash for votes. A battered nation yes… Nevermind next 5 years it’s payback time for those small handouts prepare to pay up and don’t complain ok…. Happy moaning
Come-on what’s so bad to have toxic stuff in your backyard? adds a little tonic to your water maybe your kids will grow up as X-men which they all wish too anyway…
Remember let’s vote BN for a superb Toxic-city.
Lets’s vote BN aka Bangla Nation! Sokong pembentukan satu negara baru dengan banglaputra baru. Sokong BN! Bangla Negara…
I feel Malaysians as a whole got the same symtoms as I’m feeling now. I mean Fever can drive you mad, Sorethroat can render you voiceless/speechless and looking at the Pendulum too long will make you loose sight. What does this all mean? As simple as falling sick can distract you and make you less productive. Its exactly what’s happening to me and I suppose all of us maybe?

Our bro Haris got a call .. what here’s whats said http://harismibrahim.wordpress.com/2008/10/16/stay-calm-and-stay-cunning-dont-react-for-now/
Lil Hummingbird caught up with me at the lay-by heading out of KL last night.
‘Jaya, Shar and Chee Seng are spot on’, he said.
‘Who is Jaya, Shar and Chee Seng? And correct about what?’, I asked
The comments by Jaya, Shar101 and Chee Seng reproduced below.
Banning Hindraf is a “smoke screen” to divert the nation’s attention from the ‘private sms’ and ‘public Eurocopter’!!
Only hope Hindraf’s does not fall into the ‘trap’ by responding as they ‘expect’ the reaction to be!
Need for a rational but strategic response is paramount.
Never mind the legal technicalities, bro.
It’s become obvious the authorities did not bother to heed Hindraf’s call nor did they provide a proper avenue for Hindraf to channel their grievances.
Militant UMNO needs a bogeyman.
In Hindraf, they found one or putting it another way, the UMNO-led BN government and the MSM have manipulated/reported events since Nov ‘07 to paint Hindraf as such.
Things will get worse now.
Hindraf going ‘underground’ will create opportunities for the powers that be to set up state-organised covert groups masquerading as Hindraf to spread chaos.
Unless AI and PR have better options.
We seriously need a political solution to avert a social disaster from happening. Question is – Will AI take the lead?
Chee Seng :
Is this a strategy to try and incite another May 13 or Ops Lalang?
Looks like it. Close observers of Malaysian politics have sensed a shift in the political climate since Dollah announced he decided not to seek re-election. The racism displayed by UMNO is no longer random. There seems to be more cohesion and focus in its expression.
It’s reminiscent of Ops Lalang i.e. a racially-charged scenario engineered by Mahathir who then swooped down on dissenters. Both situations also occurred when UMNO’s grip on power was under threat. Both situations cowed the nation into submission and allowed UMNO to weasel their way to a stronger grip on the nation.
It would seem that today the strategy has not changed, but tactics are a little more refined this time. Not because UMNO has become smarter, but because of their clumsy moves since March 8, they have to tread more carefully.
And since Najib, Muhyiddin and Mahathir seems to be one big happy family now, it’s pretty obvious Mahathir is calling the plays in the game.
So if we interpret everything that’s happening in our country now through the assumption that it’s all building up Ops Lallang 2 or May 13 pt 2, the strategies employed becomes obvious:
Step 1. First neutralise the Generals of change – RPK and Anwar
Step 2. Then incite the Malays to fever pitch – using Ahmad Ismail, Utusan Melayu, Khir Toyo, etc to paint everything uttered by non-Malays as anti-Malay
Step 3. Antagonise non-Malays – blatantly lie about Teresa Kok, RPK, the Sin Chew reporter, demonise HINDRAF, rip up KTK’s photo, etc, etc, etc.
This is moving the pawns into position for battle!
The next logical step would be:
Step 4. Confound the lieutenants to eliminate the second-tier leadership of the movement for change.
This can be done by crackdown or distractions. Since they have seen the rakyat’s recent reaction to crackdown, distraction is the more likely strategy employed.
Is it being implemented now? I believe so.
Plenty of issues are being thrown out into the open that divert attention away from people’s clamour for change of govt have recently surfaced – Cabinet absent from Parliament, refusal to re-table Budget 2009, fuel price decrease, RPK’s trial postponement, Utusan’s spat with Teresa Kok, banning HINDRAF, rumours of Zul joining UMNO, etc etc etc.
This will throw up plenty of fires to keep the remaining civic leaders busy. So instead of a concentrated push for changing the BN govt, the people’s energy is diverted to defending and supporting RPK, Teresa Kok and HINDRAF and trying to make heads or tails of the whole plethora of senseless issues.
These issues cannot be interpreted or reasoned out because they are designed to be senseless! So while the PR & civic leadership are thus occupied, the real strategising is going on between TDM, Najib and Muhyiddin.
Step 5: Strike decisively – Shock and Awe
Dear friends, it’s been 7 months since the election and the BN/UMNO has not shown any inclination to change or reform. In fact, we see their position hardening against dissenters. Now that the unholy trinity is finally in charge, the game will be up very soon.
We need regime change in this country if we ever hope to see real reforms. And we need it more desperately than ever with the global recession bearing down on us. (One can only assume that the PM-to-be refuses to table a new budget because when recession hits this country, we’ll be too busy worrying about our rice bowl than regime change.)
Let’s not be distracted from that goal.
How can we play our part in all this?
Do not be drawn into their evil trap! Do not get angry by their actions/words – that’s exactly what they want! Do not flame websites or blogs with our reactions to their shenanigans. Do not counter their comments.
Let’s stay focused! Our leaders in Parliament and in civic society need all our support!

THIS REALLY SUCKED~! I was about to post my photos for BUM2008 since I came home early today but to be greeted by Raja Petra in hand cuffs really spoild my day! (I think many ppl’s as well) COMMON LAR! Cuffs for an alleged sedition case?
THE REAL TOWERING MALAY
Sedition (by wikipedia)
Sedition is a term of law which refers to covert conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority as tending toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel.
Because sedition is typically considered a subversive act, the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where those legal codes have a traceable history, there is also a record of the change of definition for what constituted sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within study of persecution.
The difference between sedition and treason consists primarily in the subjective ultimate object of the violation to the public peace. Sedition does not consist of levying war against a government nor of adhering to its enemies, giving enemies aid, and giving enemies comfort. Nor does it consist, in most representative democracies, of peaceful protest against a government, nor of attempting to change the government by democratic means (such as direct democracy or constitutional convention).
Put simply, sedition is the stirring up of rebellion against the government in power. Treason is the violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or state and has to do with giving aid to enemies or levying war. Sedition is more about encouraging the people to rebel, when treason is actually betraying the country.
Now to many of us, we know who is the worried person (no names cause I might get to bunk with RPK). We also know who needs to hide some shit. We also know who missuse our Men-in-Blue for their own benefits. Now no other BN supporter had ever been hand cuffed over a seditious remark or posting and we all know there are such seditious attempts. Neither did Men-in-Blue come knocking on their doors. Even AP cloners and Money Laundering Fake Palace Builder in BakKutTeh town were allowed to walk free and no Men-in-Blue officers dares to hand cuff them even when many police reports were made.
Sick that this country is SO DAM SICK. Its really SICK to the point that someone not important (actually knows too much) can be blown up to bits by some person/s that has access to C4 which is to be from our special Men-in-Blue. It is also SICK that the Drama Minggu Ini court case is heading to dead ends like all Pak Lah’s projects.
Now I really wish defacto PM in waiting Anwar just make some party hoppers hop over and pull out the PM post from Pak Lah feet while he’s still busy with Umno’s problems. That way Anwar can free all ISA detainees and throw RPK’s case out by throwing the head of Men-in-Blue out. Later he can dig out all the dirt on all BN ministers and throw them is jail for raping this nation for so many years. As Anwar was formerly from the wolf’s pack, I’m sure he knows where to start digging.
