Don’t Support Parties Having Many Problems – Sunday, 26 February 2012 00:13

PENDANG — Najib Tun Razak said the people should be wise in picking a party that has their interests at heart and not parties that are having many problems.

The prime minister also urged the people to not only not support such parties but also those in a pact but having different idealogies.

“One will say this, another that. One will support Israel and another will have many internal problems. We have no use for such problematic parties,” he said at an “Evening with the Prime Minister” function with the Kedah-Perlis Siamese community at Wat Nanai in Kampung Tok Set near here on Saturday.

Also present were Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor, Perlis Menteri Besar Dr Md Isa Sabu, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Jamil Khir Baharom, Housing and Local Government Minister Chor Chee Heung, Kedah Umno chief Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah, Kedah Umno deputy chief Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir, who is also Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister, and Boon Som Inong, the Siamese community’s representative in the Dewan Negara.

Najib said the people should support the Barisan Nasional (BN) as the BN government was one that cared for the people.

“We do not play politics. We do not promise the moon, stars and planets. We do not promise but we deliver. We have been doing this since three years ago…give us five more years and will transform the socio-economic landscape of this country.

“We will achieve our vision to make Malaysia a high income nation by 2020. But to do it we need the support of the people,” he said.

Imposition or allowing of apartheid policies is an extremely serious ‘many problems’ that PM Najib can solve before GE13 so we can EVEN CONSIDER voting for BN.

Understand History To Avoid Being Led Astray – Information Communications and Culture Minister Dr Rais Yatim – Sunday, 26 February 2012 00:05

KUALA LUMPUR — The people, especially the younger generation should learn and understand the history of the country to avoid them from being led astray, said Information Communications and Culture Minister Dr Rais Yatim.

He said history is an important subject in school for it enable accurate historical facts to be imparted without prejudice and distortion.

“Young people have never endured difficulties during the struggle for independence, they have not often heard the sacrifices made by leaders like Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Tun Sambanthan and Mat Salleh.

“If they do not understand history and the noble struggle made by the leaders, our mistake is because we never made them acquainted with history,” he said when opening the History of Malaysia Colloquium at Universiti Malaya here on Saturday.

Rais said a call by certain quarters for Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) leaders like Chin Peng and Rashid Maidin to be honoured as heroes could be sidestepped by studies and research conducted by local historians.

He said according to UM lecturer Dr Ho Hui Ling in his research entitled “The atmosphere in Malaya During Emergency 1948-1960 – A Survey “, 1,865 members of the security forces were killed and 2,560 injured by CPM insurgents.

“A large number of civilians were also killed in traditional villages. Indeed, the atrocities inflicted by communist insurgents during the Emergency was unprecedented.

“The rationale that Chin Peng and his comrades should be forgiven does not arise for they were mired in violence, killing thousands of people and destroying properties. There is no forgiveness for them.

“Why certain quarters feel that the leaders of communist terrorists should be forgiven and given a place in the society?

“Their acknowledgment is based solely on sentiment for they want to be seen to speak freely and argue independently,” said Rais, adding that certain quarters were also oblivious to history by disputing what was enshrined in the Federal Constitution, he added.

He said history should be understood, appreciated and capitalised to foster unity.

Those people are dead. Their children are different peeople, today’s world is a different world. Stop living as if India or China wanted to march in and put all racist Malays in prison, or behave and threaten or keep laws in a manner that will tempt the same. Even if India and China actually did that (perhaps in retaliation for ‘expelling’ as some politicians threatened), USA and Russia or even the Middle East may not even bother.

MCA A Stronger, United Party Today  – Sunday, 26 February 2012 14:20

KUALA LUMPUR — The MCA has emerged more united and stronger today after surmounting many crises, party president Dr Chua Soi Lek declared at the party’s 63rd anniversary celebration attended by more than 3,000 delegates, the highest turnout at any such a gathering of the party.

Two years ago, MCA was at a crossroads, but after a new team (of leaders) was elected, the party has been working hard to regain the trust of the people and make itself relevant again, he told the delegates at Dewan San Choon, here.

“We have to accept the fact that the people won’t support a party that is besieged with problems. We have to set our priorities right so that we can move in one direction. The way forward is to be in sync with one another and work in one common effort but having many goals,” he said.

Dr Chua said there is no room for splinter groups within the party as it will destroy what the party has built in the last six decades and there is no denial that there is internal bickering but the priority now is to build a strong foundation of growth for the party as well as the nation.

He said MCA needs to continue to evolve, innovate and anticipate so that the party can be an inspiring force in the Malaysia of tomorrow.

“Being a political party, we have to anticipate the challenges in today’s political environment which has become more demanding. Leaders can come and go but the party will continue to exist,” he said, adding that different party leaderships would have different styles, approaches and initiatives.

Therefore, in line with the new political culture, he said, the MCA has taken a more high-profile approach in politics, set achievable goals and branded the party accordingly.

“Although MCA has been perceived as more vocal and more effective in solving problems now, the problem we face is that the people may not be aware of what we are doing. They are more critical of what you have not done or failed to do,” he said.

Nevertheless, he said, the party firmly believes in upholding the responsibility and would continue to articulate the hopes and expectations of the people.

Dr Chua said MCA remains relevant as there are people who still rely on the party for help.

“At the MCA headquarters, we receive hundreds of calls daily seeking help.

Our complaints bureau has also been a hive of activity always. This is because MCA does not only talk; we walk the talk, and work and deliver,” he said.

The party is not in the business of trumpeting its achievements, unlike certain political parties which do not do much and are only good at glorifying and magnifying what they do, he said.

“Our only appeal to the people is to be fair to the MCA when making their evaluation,” he said.

He also said that though MCA is Chinese-based, the party’s programmes are structured to benefit the multi-racial population and it has diversified from its ethnic-based image by no longer looking at or addressing issues solely on the standpoint of a Chinese, Malay or Indian perspective.

“We are for a social contract that is inclusive to better serve the people in all fairness and in realising the wishes of the rakyat (people). This is also in line with the 1Malaysia agenda of ‘People First’,” he said.

Police Propose AG Charges NFC Chairman For CBT – Sunday, 26 February 2012 00:20

KUALA LUMPUR — Police are proposing to charge the chairman of the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) Dr Mohamed Salleh Ismail, the husband of the Minister of Women, Family and Community Development Shahrizat Abdul Jalil for criminal breach of trust.

Bukit Aman Commercial CID director Syed Ismail Syed Azizan said the proposal was in the investigation paper being prepared by police after it had been returned from the Attorney-General’s (AG) office on Tuesday to investigate several other matters.

“The investigation would be sent back to the AG shortly,” he said when contacted by Bernama, here last night.

The issue on NFC headed by Mohamad Salleh as the executive chairman began to receive public attention after the Auditor-General’s 2010 Report in October said NFC failed to meet the objective of its establishment.

It became a hot issue when the opposition alleged misappropriation of the government’s RM250 million allocation to NFC.

NFC is a beef valley project in Gemas, Negeri Sembilan to increase the production of local beef and reduce national dependence on imported beef.

Only 8 excos will be sworn in on Tuesday, says Azizan – February 26, 2012

ALOR SETAR, Feb 26 — Only eight Kedah state executive councillors (excos) will be sworn in for the 2012 term on Tuesday as compared to 10 slated earlier, Bernama Online reported the Kedah mentri besar as saying today.

Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak (picture) said there would be no new faces in the line-up for Tuesday and that two more excos will be appointed in the near future who may not be current excos.

He added that although the list has been finalised and submitted to the Kedah Sultan, there is an overlap between the incoming and outgoing excos, who will only be completing their terms on March 7. As a result, all 10 excos cannot be sworn in at the same time on February 28.

In an apparent reference to rumours that two current excos had declined to accept their re-appointments, Azizan said every exco has the right to decline his appointment, noting that the state government had no problem filling the vacancies anyway as many assemblymen had offered to take up the posts.

The excos in question are said to be Kedah PAS deputy commissioner I, Datuk Phahrolrazi Zawawi, and Kedah PAS deputy commissioner II, Datuk Dr Ismail Salleh, who are the excos for Housing, Local Government, Works, Utilities and Energy and Health, Non-governmental Organisations, Human Capital Development, Science and Innovation and Information and Communications Technology respectively.

It has been speculated that the two men are unhappy about Azizan’s leadership in relation to various issues that have affected his administration in recent years.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

No local council elections – FAIL. The people have the right to chose who gets to be excos or if the laws need to be amended so that citizens can vote rather than cronies be placed by a political party. This measn that the political party has bad policies in refusing to amend or allow people to choose excos.

KITA: Zamil not party leader – February 26, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 26 — The People’s Welfare Party (KITA) today denied that Zamil Ibrahim has been appointed as the new head of the party to replace Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, Bernama Online reported today.

KITA secretary Masrum Dayat said in a statement that recent newspaper reports on the purported appointment were erroneous.

He also said an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) supposedly held in Kota Baru yesterday to remove Zaid as president and install Zamil in his place had not been sanctioned by the party.

KITA’s Kelantan chief Abdullah Sani Musa was reported to have confirmed that the EGM had taken place yesterday.

The party president may only be replaced according to the party’s constitution and rules, Masrum added in the statement.

He countered a KITA central working committee meeting held on February 17 and attended by 25 of its 30 committee members had unanimously rejected Zaid’s offer to step down as party president.

He also said KITA would not be dissolved but members who opted to back “renegades” would face stern disciplinary action, including termination of their membership.

Zamil, together with Penang KITA chairman, Tan Tee Beng, who is also Nibong Tebal MP, were sacked by KITA for allegedly breaching party discipline.

KITA will cooperate fully with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) over complaints raised by dissatisfied members, he added.

The party, which was formed a year ago, was issued a show cause letter by the ROS on February 9, asking that it explain why it should not be de-registered following allegations it had violated several provisions of the party and articles of association.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Hey there you cannot APPOINT anyone and be a democratic party, the ROS should demand that for political parties, a quorum of 66.6% be implemented (this means PKR’s CC is invalid, because PKR only had a quorum of 8% – ask PKR leader Badrul . . . ). On a lighter note . . . whats with that name?!? Masrum?!? Ya gotta be kidding, wheres he supposed to be from, Mario Brothers? Both Mega-Mushroom from Mario Bros.

The shameless lot – Spencer Gan – February 26, 2012

FEB 26 – When exactly did Malaysia reach this point: where those sullied by wrongdoing (NFC) and the mother of all wrongdoing (PKFZ) speak without shame, even with arrogance.

There is no remorse or humility. Aren’t those who are wrong or who have misused public funds supposed to show some sorrow or at least keep silent?

Not so the people at the National Feedlot Corporation (NFCorp) or the political party whose politicians fleeced Malaysians of billions of ringgit, the MCA.

A day after the police said that it was recommending that the directors of the NFCorp be charged with criminal breach of trust, the NFCorp hit back and cast aspersions on the motives of the police. It then went on to accuse the police of not understanding key ingredients of the offence.

Imagine the chaps who used your money and mine to buy condos not in the name of NFCorp here and in Singapore; to purchase umrah packages, to pay their credit card bills, etc and doing as they wished with a government soft loan having the temerity to slam the police for improper motives!!!

Till today, we have not had a sorry or any remorse from the people at NFCorp. All we have had is aggression and excuses and ridiculous explanations.

And how about Chua Soi Lek and the MCA. Not a day goes by without them making some accusation against Pakatan Rakyat (the latest one is that Malaysia  will become bankrupt within two years if Pakatan takes control).

This warning is coming from the political party that gave us a RM12 billion hole thanks to the corrupt and conniving ways of its politicians who ran the PKFZ. I have not heard Soi Lek or any MCA politician put up their hands and say sorry for fleecing the Malaysian taxpayer.

But I suppose asking these people to act with a modicum of decency is too much. Anyway, while we are on the subject of bankruptcy, wasn’t it Idris Jala who warned that Malaysia was on the road to bankruptcy given the profilgacy of the government.

And correct me but isn’t this the government which has “borrowed” ideas of Pakatan Rakyat’s Buku Jingga and abolished toll charges on some stretches of highways.

But what is astounding is that we have in Malaysia a situation where those accused/guilty of wrongdoing are lecturing the rest of us.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Because both BN lapdogs and Pakatan Rakyat both have let the APARTHEID issue which is the FIRST article of the the *UNHCR* slide, the ‘Shameless Lot’ think they can get away with anything.

Article 1. – All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. If equality and apartheid can exist, the above is nothing compared. Indeed would Malaysians consider ignoring the above in exchange for the below 3 items? Ending corruption in the above case may affect a few THOUSAND people, but ending APARTHEID will improve the lot of a few MILLION.

Vote only for MPs who will endorse with intention to grant :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

Hisham: Virtual firing range to help youths understand guns, police – by Yow Hong Chieh – January 25, 2012

In Uncategorized on January 27, 2012 at 6:28 pm

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 25 — Rela Youth cadets will soon be able to sharpen their marksmanship skills at a RM6.56 million high-tech virtual shooting range, where they will handle simulation firearms.

The simulation centre at the Rakan Muda Complex here can cater to up to 14,400 trainees a year and aims to “foster youth interest in security and public order issues through the activity of shooting”.

Soldiers undergo training with a virtual shooting range. — ng.mil pic
The virtual firing range will run on South Korea’s Intelligent Marksmanship Training Simulation System (IMTS), said to be two generations more advanced than similar systems used in the US.

It is understood that there are over 40 such ranges in South Korea, which are used to train its police force.

IMTS was purchased for RM5.15 million, while upgrading works for the complex cost RM1.5 million.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said he hoped trainees would be able to better understand the pressures of being a policeman when faced with a life-or-death scenario.

“Maybe the youths will see how difficult it is for the authorities to carry out their duties when faced with certain situations so they won’t easily point fingers and accuse the police in certain cases,” he told reporters after visiting the centre.

“I ask those who accuse the police (of wrongful shooting) … to come to this centre. They can see for themselves what they will do when faced with the choice of shoot or be killed. It’s not easy to make such a decision.”

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Shabeery Cheek, who was also present, said the simulation firing range is safer than a real one as lasers and not bullets would be used.

He said the centre can also stay open for longer hours than outdoor firing ranges, the use of which is subject to the weather, and can be maintained more easily with fewer personnel.

Shabeery also explained that the server used to power the simulation could later be hooked up to other virtual shooting centres, saving money in the long run.

“It may cost more at first but later it’ll be cheaper,” he said, stressing that the cost saved on ammunition alone would be substantial.

Those who complete their training on the simulator can then go on to test their skills at a real firing range, he also said.

A virtual war games module will also be added to the simulation centre in future to teach trainees about tactics.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

The feel and use on real life and online (much like paintball gun paintball projectiles are 8 times slower than bullet guns) is entirely different.

PLEASE use a live firing range if you have any respect for REALITY at all Home Minister. Also those firearms should be replaced with non-lethal weapons, specific suggestion being :

(1) Tennis ball hurling ‘nerf guns’ which are quite decapitating at a certain rate of fire and range (ask how many ‘ham tam’ bolas one can take, not alot I tell you especially if fired from a gun like device),
(2) tranquiliser darts (these can be abused so not the best option), or at most
(3) somewhat lethal tasers (only to be used if met with lethal force, the good guys always try to ‘bring ’em in alive’ what more RELA being not even real police to begin with).
(4) potentially lethal (but less likely to kill than bullets) broomsticks in shotguns – ‘Emergency Style’ . . .

Firearms are designed to kill and if maiming is not even the intent or troublesome for prison conditions later, civilians should never allow para-police groups like RELA to use firearms on them and AFTER training in an ‘online’ not even real environment to top things off. Have the MPs vote on this and probably you’d find the above non-lethal sugggestions preferred. Even citizens do not like the non-violent criminals to die under small arms fire.

These practice sessions should also best be done IRL along with running (with RELA member’s own legs) in real life rough terrain – not online, it could save RELA personnel lives and make them more sure footed even if a few bumps and bruises occur during training. How can resting elbows on cushioned pleather gun range supports, or lying on a mat in front of a computer widescreen in an airconditioned room constitute training? The taxpayers would not allow their money to be spent in this unreal/online manner? In fact one wonders if RELA itself should be paid such high allowances (will they be paid to play ‘Counterstrike’ type games as pretend storm troopers?) to begin with when real workers don’t even have minimum wage?

What does RELA fill in where the cops don’t already do? How about scraping RELA allowances and giving the cops a higher salary and better incentive to do better work?

Musa Hassan should stop demeaning police leadership, slams Robert Phang – by Robert Phang – 14 December 2011

In Uncategorized on January 15, 2012 at 10:47 am
Utusan Malaysia reported that the former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan was a keynote speaker at the 25th Media Criticism Colloquium organised by the Faculty of Communication & Media Studies, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). Tan Sri Musa is reported to have said: “Kita selalu membaca atau mendengar mengenai penurunan kadar jenayah, tetapi rakyat masih berasa tidak selamat kerana tidak yakin dengan maklumat penurunannya yang diterima itu,” In effect, Musa Hassan is questioning the credibility of the statistics provided by the Polis DiRaja Malaysia (PDRM) and the Home Ministry about the reduction of crimes in the country. In effect, he is questioning the integrity of the present leadership of PDRM under current IGP Tan Sri Haji Ismail Omar and the Deputy IGP Dato’ Seri Khalid Abu Bakar in reducing crimes and in making the country safer It should be noted that the image of the PDRM was at its lowest during the time that Musa Hassan was the IGP. Crime rate was very high and on the rise. He was embroiled in many controversies. His ADC wrote an open letter of allegation accusing him of creating a fictitious blog to frame Deputy Home Minister, Dato’ Johari Baharom, and called him a “pengkhianat bangsa”. Former OCCI KL Dato Mat Zin also accused him of fabricating evidence and perjury. There were allegations of corruption against him including his complicity with an underworld operator Goh Cheng Poh @ Tengku Goh in the loan shark menace during that time. That resulted in six rank and file policemen and even the Director CCID, Dato Ramli Yusuff, being charged by AG Gani Patail. They have all been acquitted. Musa Hassan is the first IGP in the history of the county and the PDRM to appear in court to give evidence against his own Director CCID, Dato Ramli Yusuff. In acquitting Dato Ramli, the Sessions Judge in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah delivered a damning judgment calling Musa Hassan in effect as a liar. It was because of his failure to control the rising crime rate that the government tasked the Home Minister, Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, to develop innovative crime prevention measures and making it one of the National Key Result Area (NKRA). It was through this initiative that the crime rate had been successfully reduced. Yet, Musa Hassan accused Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Hussein of interference with the internal affairs of the PDRM when his contract as IGP was not further renewed. All these are still fresh in the minds of most Malaysians. Thus, it is very mischievous of Musa Hassan to question the accuracy of the national crime index to discredit the efforts of the PDRM. The fact is this, the current Deputy Home Minister, Dato Abu Seman Yusop, has just disclosed a recent study on Global Peace Index 2011 by an Australian based Institute for Economics and Peace which rated Malaysia as 19th among 153 countries in terms of being secure. This is also the highest ranking within South-East Asia. Musa Hassan should accept and recognise such internationally conducted and respected study instead of sounding like a sour grape. Musa Hassan should not use a media colloquium to cast aspersions on the Police Force that he once led. As a Principal Lecturer of the Centre for Media and Information Warfare Studies, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), he ought to know the impact of such mischievous statement and journalistic slant. My Muslim friends tell me that there is even a chapter in the Holy Quran that forbids Muslims from sowing the seeds of suspicions and discord: “ Say: I seek refuge with the Lord …from the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper),… ” Musa Hassan should know all these things better as had just been a victim of false rumour mongering about his marriage to an artist with a huge multi-million ringgit dowry. That is of course false and I applaud him for lodging a police report against these mischief-maker. I would also encourage him to sue them for defamation to clear his name. Thus, Musa Hassan should not do the same thing to others, as in the Christian saying: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (The Bible-Matthews 7:12) In the spirit of Christmas, I ask that we, Malaysians, stop all these suspicion, back-biting, casting aspersions and from creating dissensions that would cause divisiveness and chaos in our society. We should stand as one united people – as 1Malaysia! “HUMBLENESS IS GOOD VIRTUE, ARROGANCE SHALL FALL, THE MEEK WILL RULE THE WORLD”.

Bla bla bla . . . – as 1Malaysia! . . . We have enough ra-ra politicians and don’t need another platitude spewer – and a Xian one to boot. Tan Sri Robert Phang, 1Malaysia is not about defending any religion or any uniformed group. It is about the below 3 items as all good and serious governments should be :
 
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
 
Could Tan Sri Robert as enthusiastically endorse the above 3 items instead of going all ra-ra on all disenfranchised and oppressed citizens? Stop quoting so many bible lines. To be PC, it is best to consider the ‘proselytizative’ effects of quoting from the bible, which is unethical if there was any such intent. Rather contrived attempt at making friends with the police and promoting Xianity subtly if anything, and at the expense of not mentioning APARTHEID no less, you’re not going to sell everyone out as so many have now are you?
 
Endorse. Otherwise file suit on the basis of Articles 1 and 18. Some of us do not have the network or experience or training, but unless you want to be all of the aboveexcept GUTS, better take action now while you’re hale and hearty.
 
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
