RPK, Anwar, Najib, Guan Eng, Soi Lek – all can debate!


Why are we consciously or unconsciously fighting each other? Reports that Anwar doesn’t want to debate with RPK and various accusations hurled around now appear quite unfounded is just a waste of time. Julian Assange only wanted to make a documentary and interview these personalities to enhance his production. No debate whatsoever.

The one debate that we are all waiting for is between Najib and Anwar.

If it is ever possible to wish for a debate of the century, it is this one! A classic in the making that Malaysia has never seen.

Dissecting RPK: He was just being honest


I didn’t read the spins that the Main Stream Media made. Just watch this video on the interview here.

The conclusion one can draw is that RPK was just being himself speaking what he believes is the truth albeit sometimes hard to take. Yes, they are his opinions and yes as opinions go, the interview doesn’t carry many facts to back them up except in some cases. I am not defending RPK but he is just trying to call a spade a spade.

There was nothing on MCLM so I can’t comment on the reasons why the movement’s president resigned. But what we can tell is as follows. You be the judge when you watch the interview.

Relevance of Anwar

This is politics. As long as it is expedient, Anwar will always be held in the highest esteem by the party, PKR, as well as by the Pakatan partners of DAP and PAS. RPK is right to say that the people is not in love with Anwar to vote for Pakatan. They see that Pakatan under Anwar is the only real alternative to Najib and BN.

2012: Interesting Times Ahead


Malaysia enters 2012 with many uncertainties but also with many certainties. We are looking at interesting times this year for sure. Let’s take a quick look at what lies ahead.

Uncertain

  1. RPK an Umno blogger? His interview in Singapore has been set ablazed by the MCM to haunt Anwar and PKR. Rumors are running rife that he has been bought by Umno and is given a free pass home to Malaysia. Is that so? It can be true or it can be a game to toy with Umno. RPK is not stupid and neither are we Malaysians. We shall see and time will tell the truth about this matter.

So much “news” in Malaysia these days


Malaysia is brewing with “news” these days.  Here is a quick roundup in case you missed them.

Wikileaks on Anwar (read here) as well as Najib (read here) are causing much difficulty for them as well as the countries (read here and here) alleged to have made the statements.  These are difficult times for both Anwar and Najib in damage control mode.

Perkasa leader Ibrahim Ali again made headlines coming to the defense of Najib (read here) while Najib has remained silent thus far.  Further extreme ideas include Perkasa demanding the Najib administration to build a special museum commemorating May-13 (read here).  His latest taunt reflects a poor judgment on his part on nation building interest which is deplorable to say the least for this politician.  One wonders if he actually knows the facts behind the unfortunate event or is bent to force his personal view on the matter.

Turn Your Eyes on Kuala Trengganu


January 17 is the next important date for Malaysians.  The Kuala Trengganu (KT) by-election has turned out to be another mother of by-elections so to speak.  The Parliamentary seat is now up for grabs and PAS has Abdul Wahid Endut against Umno’s Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid Wan Salleh.

However, in light of the bigger picture, it is Pakatan Rakyat‘s advisor Anwar Ibrahim verses Barisan Nasional‘s Deputy President and Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak.  This is a classic clash of the giants and much is at stake.  It is a Parliamentary seat as well as a moral victory for whichever party that wins it.  It may herald a new watershed of events and become a growing force of disenchantment against the Government or it can become a major stumbling block to a vision of replacing the Government.

Either way, this by-election has all the makings of a historic event.

Consensual Sodomy? A likely crocked up story (Updated)


Malaysia Kini is currently carry an online poll asking “Should the Anwar sodomy charge be dropped?” Interestingly but not surprisingly, the current result shows over 92% of the 1,464 respondents say yes (read here for more updated stats).

Speak to whoever you know and there is a sense of frustration, disbelief as well as anger that this episode has been used as a public assassination of Anwar’s political career.  If this is not politically motivated, then why are politicians so keen to make a statement?  Why did the police swoop in to arrest Anwar?  Why did our dear foreign minister brief so many foreign country ambassadors?  Why is the Government trying to pretend to be not involved when the public clearly sees their involvement?  Why is Saiful being protected by the police and I presume given immunity in this charge solely against Anwar for “suka sama suka” (consensual) act?  There are more unanswered questions with more revelation by RPK too.

Protect Saiful and screw Anwar!  And we are told that this is not political.  Hah!  Are Malaysians stupid?  No we are not and don’t take us as fools please!

Sodomy vs Economy: Who cares for us Malaysians?


It is so exciting to read about Anwar hitting the road for the impending Pematang Pauh by-election over the weekend.  Sounded like the prelude to a national transformation with speculation that he will win handsomely.  Main stream media played down his thunderous heart moving ceramahs and played up the unfortunate incident of the Guang Ming Daily’s photographer being roughed up.  One would have thought that this incident reported by the MSM being the highlight of the Anwar trail.  Sad news reporting but then again, MSM is proven yet again to be a Government propaganda machine.

Today, we know that the Pematang Pauh by-election will be on 26 August.  Shortly after that, Anwar is served a summon to appear in court tomorrow morning at 10am.  Then RPK writes another startling exposé with details of a complicated conspiracy (read here) to show how Anwar and RPK are being setup for the fall and be removed from being an obstacle to the powers to be.  This is all too disturbing to Malaysians and a cause for all of us to worry even more!

Police Independence – Does it matter?


Given the rate that our Government is making public statements on current police investigations and in some way representing the police to call on Anwar to give his DNA, one wonders if the police is truly independent or not!  Maybe that’s not the right question to ask.  Maybe it should be “Can the Police be independent?” and the answer is a resounding NO!  Why?  Does it matter?

Updated 3:20pm: RPK Released On Technicality or Bail???


Interestingly, there were conflicting reports as to why RPK walked.  Did he post bail as some reported (read here) or was he released on technical grounds (read here)?

This is a classic example of simply NOT believing everything that is posted anywhere, be it in online blogs or news or even the Main Stream Media (MSM).  As a common reader, I believe we must use our good judgment on the facts of the matter.  When the facts cannot be verified, we just take it with a pinch of salt.  Depending on who posts them, maybe more than a pinch 😉

A Historic 4 Days in Malaysia


July 16 – Anwar arrested on sodomy charges with a SWAT style swoop and a convoy of vehicles and ski masked personnel; interrogated for 6 hours, sent to hospital for examination (read here), appeals for all to be calm.

July 17 – Anwar released on bail; RPK arrested on his way to the Police HQ (read here), charged in court for defamation.

These two days have push the limits of the tolerance of the opposition parties and the general public to a new high. More police road blocks were set up this morning causing grievious inconvenience to the morning rush hour folks, all caught by surprise yet again a repeat of the police road blocks on Sunday and Monday morning.

What is happening? Why is it happening?

Speculation is now all time high and mostly not in favor of the ruling Government. High handed tactics and a general public perception that the Government is doing all they can to stay in power even to the extent of bring out the army and these two days of horror are driving the public to question the Government even more.
