cakap cakap...Najib giving up?

You want to know what it will be like in the coming days as a desperate Najib tries to hangs on to his job? 

Glancing through yesterday's headlines, the following are just three reports on 1MDB and the ramifications of its current malaise - or as some wags would have it, its impending demise.    

  • Need for PM's approval on 1MDB deals a known fact, CEO says.
  • The requirement to obtain the prime minister's written approval for any financial deals undertaken by 1 Malaysia Development Bhd was never hidden from public knowledge, the troubled fund's chief executive said today.
  • Bank negara confirms told about 1MDB-BSI 'cash' issue by Singapore.
  • Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) today confirmed receiving a report from its Singapore counterpart on a complaint lodged by BSI Bank about 1Malaysia Development Bhd's

  • Tenaga loses RM6b after shares drop amid rumours of buying 1MDB assets.
  • Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) has bled RM6 billion after speculation that the electricity company may buy 1 Malaysia Development Bhd's (1MDB) power assets caused its shares to drop in the share market.

In a nutshell it confirms what we already know about 1MDB.

The first report confirms that Najib Tun Razak approved all financial deals undertaken by 1MDB. In short he had knowledge off and approved in writing all financial deals undertaken by 1MDB. The same financial deals that has caused 1MDB current RM42 billion debts.

The second report confirms that 1MDB has officially reached that level that has made it necessary for another country's financial authority - in this case Singapore's Nasional Bank  - to inform Malaysia's Nasional Bank of a complain lodged by a Singapore Bank against 1MDB.

The third report heralds the impending financial Armageddon when the 1MDB shit really hits the proverbial fan! Just on a rumor that it might be involved in a 1MDB "bailout" has caused TNB to lose RM6 billion. 

And are there still Umno leaders waiting in line to praise Najib Razak for his wisdom and sterling leadership of our nation? 

The same Najib that is now being called a LIAR to his face by Tun Mahathir? 

I am running out of adjective to hantam Najib with but "village idiot" seems appropriate given the present conundrum he is now in. 

What do you think he will be thinking about while doing his morning ablutions today? He is standing naked in the middle of Seri Perdana's master bedroom bathroom and he is trying to decide whether he needs to empty his bowels, brush his teeth or  have a shower first. He cannot decide because his brains are all scrambled with thoughts of 1MDB, thoughts on whether he will still be PM at the end of the day and most worrying of all, with thoughts of what Rosmah would do to him if he did lose his job as PM. 

So Najib is standing naked in the middle of Seri Perdana's master bedroom bathroom dithering about what he should do : like a village idiot trying to decide whether he has enough time to unzip his trousers before he pees even as he has already started to pee in his pants. And I think the state of Najib's mind this morning would see him doing all three - empty his bowel, brush his teeth and have a shower at the same time -  because that is how he is running our nation from the time he became PM. Like a village idiot who has no clue as to what he is doing!

But stupidity alone does not explain what Najib is doing. 

It takes a village of idiots to keep that idiot of a Prime Minister in office! 

BN, Umno and the PMO has plenty of them - all putting up their hands eagerly waiting to be counted as a fellow idiot.  And you must not forget the large contingent of "rent an idiot crowd" that are called upon from time to time by Najib and his village of idiot to front up in public places to "show" their support for that idiot of our Prime Minister! 

I have said it before and I will say it again. We are past the tipping point.  Give up lah Najib...give up before they come for you and have their way with you.

Flyer1668 comment on Arul Kanda giving the finger to PAC

steadyaky47 comment: Just when we thought that this Najib feller cannot do anything more stupid than what he has done so far ...he comes up with more!

Does anyone in Bolehland think that Arul Kanda would dare to give the finger to PAC if Najib had not given his nod to Kanda to do so?

Najib o Najib....aku panggil engkau bodoh engkau marah pulak!

Najib is on a one way trip, no stopping at go to collect $200, no about turn, no u turn, no diversion....not left or right turn....he is on a one way trip to Hell and there is no turning back. Read what flyer1668 has to say about it all. I agree!

"Arul Kanda giving the finger to PAC"

Pak Hussein,

Just to share this...

"He also stressed that when concerns began to be raised pertaining to 1MDB, he has ordered the A-G and the PAC for a detailed explanation."

“I have ordered the A-G and PAC to investigate 1MDB’s books.

Anyone found guilty of embezzlement or misappropriation will be brought to justice..."

May 17, 2015 - 1MDB: Najib Promises To Bring Those Guilty In Embezzling To Justice -

Well, Arul Kanda has been well advised & groomed by his "Masters" & so the same finger also applies to PAC's from his Master...!

"...There is something about a court of law that scares Prime Minister Najib Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor. Why?

Because in a court of law, anything you say will be recorded for public record and you would not dare, unless intentionally, lie in an open court.
So when the issue of calling the first couple to take the witness stand in the sodomy trial against Anwar Ibrahim came around, both Najib amd Rosmah took the easy way out - show us the subpoena!

The KL High Court was told they had refused to co-operate. Interviews are usually conducted to determine whether a witness will be called to testify in a trial. “They have refused to come to court, to be interviewed by the defence unless they were served with a subpoena,” Solicitor-General II Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden told the court.

More than likely, Najib and Rosmah may have been briefed by the Attorney General, who must have assured the first couple it was fine to hide behind technicality. Both husband and wife have been accused of hatching the sodomy charges iagainst Anwar in a bid to tarnish and derail his political career.

A subpoena or summons is issued by a court of law to compel a person to be a witness in a court of law. It is provided for under Section 34(1) of Act 593 - Criminal Procedure Code. And this is the technicality that Najib and Rosmah are hiding behind. Until and when a judge signs a summons order, the two are not obliged to appear in court.

Judiciary muzzled since the 80s

This bit of technicality enforces the fact that the Judiciary in Malaysia is in such a broken state that law and order is dictated by an elite few who hold high office in Malaysia.

The 1988 Malaysian constitutional crisis (also known as the 1988 judicial crisis) was a series of events that began with United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) party election in 1987 and ended up with the suspension and the eventual removal of the Lord President of the Supreme Court, Tun Salleh Abas, from his seat.

The Supreme Court in the years leading up to 1988 had been increasingly independent of the other branches of the government.

Matters then came to a head when Mahathir Mohamad, who believed in the supremacy of the executive and legislative branches, became Prime Minister.

Many saw his eventual sacking of Salleh Abas and two other Supreme Court judges as the end of judicial independence in Malaysia, and Mahathir's actions were condemned internationally.

Since 1988, there have been regular calls for an official review of the government's actions throughout the crisis.

In 2008, newly appointed de-facto Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim said the government had to make an open apology to the sacked judges, calling the government's actions during the crisis "inappropriate". Not long after, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi called the crisis one which the nation had never recovered from, and announced ex gratia compensation for the sacked and suspended judges.

And though all the above was done by Najib’s predecessor, it had not return the judiciary to its former state. Instead, Najib himself has successfully manipulated the courts so as not be called as witness even-though his involvement in both the Scorpenes and Sodomy II cases are glaring..."

You be the judge.

Quickies : Arul Kanda giving the finger to PAC.

1MDB chief Arul Kanda to skip PAC probe tomorrow

KUALA LUMPUR, May 25  — The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will not get to grill 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) chief executive Arul Kanda Kandasamy tomorrow as he has excused himself from attending the parliamentary committee hearing.

It is understood that Arul and his predecessor, Datuk Shahrol Halmi, had written in to inform the committee that they would not be able to attend the hearing as they are currently overseas.

steadyaku47 comment : 

This is the reaction of a number of people who were asked for their reaction to Arul Kanda Kandasamy excusing himself from attending the parliamentary committee hearing on 1MDB. I have nothing to add to their comments.

cakap cakap... Syiok sendiri aja!

Hi has not been a good week for me....blogging wise lah....not life wise! Life is still good but blogging wise I got that once in a blue moon dreaded "mental block". I simply did not have the mood to write and when that happens I know better than to fight it....thank God that changed over the weekend. Back to speed as of Sunday!

Winter is upon us in Melbourne - and Winter in Melbourne is wet, windy and cold but no complains from me because its all good when you are dressed for the weather. Even the rain is a welcomed bother when it comes because it gives a sense of calm and freshness all around me. 

I am now writing for Berita Daily.  At 67 years of age I am loath to put myself to any writing datelines and it took some thinking for me to do this but a friend there asked that I do so and knowing his work ethics, I had no hesitation in doing so. It still gives me a "kick" to see my articles published there. Syiok sendidri aja!

For a few months I was with Nuffnang and has adverts plastered all over my blog. I worked hard at increasing my reader base and managed to more than double the clicks that I normally have but after a few months all that translated into was about RM$10 income a week. I just did not see the point of having adverts all over my blog for that amount of money I cancelled out of Nuffnang. Has anybody else earned more from them?

 I have stopped viewing those beheading and execution videos that is all over You Tube. I do not think I can stomach anymore of those kind of insane brutality - what one human being can do to another human being is beyond belief. And I am getting sick of the constant Muslim/Islamic bashing that is also all over the Internet! Can you get it into your head that people are different from you? I have never tasted Avocado and I hate Chilies. Does that make me an evil person to someone who likes Avocado and loves Chilies? If you have something against Muslims, Christians or Buddhists then just leave them alone. Do not go looking for things to say or do against them. Just accept that there are people who are different from you, have views that are different from you and do things that are different from you. And leave them alone....unless they intrude into your personal space.

Now politicians are a different kettle of fish. They intrude into my personal space all the time - especially those in Malaysia. They are ruining my country, bashing my people and making a mockery of all the morality and ethics that they have promised to uphold and practice. So must hantam them lah!

Almost noon on a Monday and I have to think about lunch and plan for dinner. No washing to do this morning because I did all that I had to do on Sunday. Another week to live out and another day to go through with those that I love close by. May the coming week be as good for you all as I will make mine to be as good as I want it to be for me. Peace.     

Is Najib and Rosmah suffering from delusions of grandeur?

Is Najib suffering from delusions of grandeur?
The fight now is whether to allow that delusion of grandeur of the PM and his wife to fester and blight out economy, our government, our future and our way of life
Hussein Hamid
So why is Najib the way he is? A bumbling "I walk into walls" kind of Prime Minister who seems oblivious to the fact that his tenure as Prime Minister is under severe threat?

Why indeed! He wants to remain Prime Minister for all the wrong reasons!

He and his wife have grown accustomed to living in Seri Perdana. Grown accustomed to the Police out riders and security details that follows them everywhere. With the Private Jets at their beck and call to go where there is government business to do - to Milan, to New York, London...places where the shopping do not get any better! And of course there are those millions if not a billion or two of ringgit to be made if anyone is inclined to abuse and misuse the office of Prime Minister for financial gain.

The office of Prime Minister in the hands of Najib and Rosmah gives new meaning to money politics, nepotism and what arrogance in high public office constitute - especially when there are no consequences or punishment for what they do.And this we have seen happen time and time again as the Prime Minister and his wife eagerly tests the limits of what a Malaysia Prime Minster and his wife can do while in office.

Najib is President of Umno, head of Barisan Nasional and Prime Minister of Malaysia at the pleasure of Umno, its office bearers and its members.

How that ' pleasure' is given and sustained between periods of Umno's party elections is a fascinating mix of money politics, patronage and factionalism as decided by those seeking those high office that are on offer from time to time during Umno's party elections.

How this has been done in the past and how it is being done now has been the subject of countless discussions, debates and many many articles written more times than there are seconds in a minute, in an hour or even in a day. Suffice to say that matters have come to a head within Umno because Umno has once again agreed to disagree amongst themselves.
