Mahathir Najib's 'Arrogance and political vendetta will defeat UMNO in GE14

 Looking deep into Arifin Zakaria, Md Raus Sharif, Abdul Hamid Embong, Suriyadi Halim Omar and Ramly Ali.  their  eyes, or another’s, can be an uncomfortable experience because not all of us are prepared for the truths revealed We have all heard that eyes are the windows to the soul; they indicate the real you. Have you tried looking deep into your own eyes? Most people are scared of doing so, even as self-help gurus encourage us to do so. For, our eyes can sometimes reveal truths that we are not prepared to face. You could fool the whole world and even yourself into believing whatever your mind wants you to believe, but the accusing look, the hurt in your eyes will pull you up sharply. As beautifully put by a poet trying to explain the connection between eyes and the soul, “Eyes mirror our souls… actually they don’t. They have been carved out of our souls.”  
Anwar.A great leader ,like Ghandi,Mandela,Syu Ky,Abraham Lincoln,Lee Kuan Yew,will not and cannot perish from the scenario just like that, no matter what and how big the political obstacles were forced upon them.They will prevail one day.That day will come for Anwar.Maybe 3-4 years to come.Maybe sooner if he is pardoned by the King.But do not wish upon such unrealistic dreams under this regime of exploiters.They can jail Anwar.They can remove his courageous irritation and threat to their scheme of plundering the nation,but they cannot jail, extinguish the minds and spirit of the rakyat for change.Change for a more dynamic nation where all the citizens are equally and fairly treated.Change that is greatly needed before it's too late,before the damage is to the point of no return.If this nation has achieved greatness and prosperity, everyone,no matter what race,creed,religion,will achieve too.Can this nation under this regime of 57 years capable of bringing us that greatness?
Great speech. Even the judges are afraid to hear his words for they know deep in their hearts of their doings and embarrassed to face him even after they have submitted their verdict.
It is nothing but sheer political persecution of Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, who has won the hearts and minds of all right thinking and incorruptible Malaysians and the admiration of all Malaysians and the world at large.White House National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said Malaysia and the United States have a strong partnership and the United States is committed to expanding this cooperation on shared economic and security challenges.She said "In that context, we urge the government of Malaysia to apply the rule of law fairly, transparently, and apolitically in order to promote confidence in Malaysia's democracy, judiciary, and economy".

The 'strong partnership' and 'commitment' by the US with Malaysia is based on its perceived confidence in Malaysia to adhere to democracy, judiciary, and economy - but this perception hinges on Malaysia applying the rule of law fairly, transparently, and apolitically.

Message to note is that the US does not place much sentimental value to golfing and selfie-taking buddies. If you go out of line, they will drop you like a tonne of bricks.

..when your old shit was hammering your bearer away, preferring the back door entry, you observed and learned... you must congratulate yourself for attaining high marks on your observation. Now you speak like a pimp with authority on this rear end entertainment. You miserable
 Looks like the stinking ' men in cloak ' guilty conscience got the better of themselves and ran like pussies !! Are they so guilt stricken until they dare not stay to face Anwar? All their respect built over the years are gone in an instant. What a shame.Arifin Zakaria, Md Raus Sharif, Abdul Hamid Embong, Suriyadi Halim Omar and Ramly Ali, you will be taken to task by principled Malaysians one day for your lack of good judgment and spine shown today, and also for your political wickedness and treachery which you have no doubt committed so you can suck up to your political masters in UMNO and serve and further their and your own self-interests and self-preservation at the loss and expense of Malaysian public, national and democratic interests. And as surely as day follows night, you will be held to account by due process of a just rule of law for what you have done today to sodomise Mr Anwar Ibrahim, to sodomise all Malaysians and to sodomise Malaysia’s rule of law and justice and make kit into a laughing stock in the eyes of the world and its international audience. So you have been warned and put on notice as to those intentions, Arifin Zakaria, Md Raus Sharif, Abdul Hamid Embong, Suriyadi Halim Omar and Ramly Ali.

 “Let me say at once that we will never use this jurisdiction to uphold our own dignity. That must rest on surer foundations. Nor will we use it to suppress those who speak against us. We do not fear criticism, nor do we resent it. For there is something far more important at stake. It is no less than freedom of speech itself.”
In a democracy the people are supreme and all authorities, whether First Lady  or Prime Minister of , other ministers, judges, legislators, bureaucrats, police, army and so on are servants of the people. Since the people are the masters and judges their servants, the people have a right to criticise judges just as a master has the right to criticise his servant.this judgment is incorrect, totally unacceptable in a democracy

 Chief Justice Arifin Zakariais the most evil of the species.Tyranny thrives on the weak and those who do not care. Tyranny does not survive for long, nor on ill-gotten gains, pomp and illusory power.For the winners, at best, it is only a temporary reprieve. GE14 might be the war to end all wars for the simple reason that the anger of the right-thinking rakyat now knows no bounds.The wrongs remain unanswerable by the responsible ones. Thus, don't expect weaknesses that will be overcome and mistakes can be prevented in future, for we are heading down the path of self-destruction. How long can we, lay people, go with it? Under the present adverse economic situation and with the country’s financial health continuing to deteriorate, we will be unlikely to make ends meet soon.
the majority knows that a great injustice had been delivered to Anwar and to the people of Malaysia at large. was more political than legal.The truth will always see the light of day. Karma always has its own strange way to come calling. No matter how grand or mighty or superior a title one carries before his or her name, it is always inferior to that being conferred by ordinary people - a people's hero. The truth will always prevail over evil, always.
 Anwar Ibrahim is going in (jail) for the third time and each time before he came out stronger. We shall pray for his good health to continue the struggle. He is like a proverbial phoenix. This is abridged version of an anonymous poem 
 “Out of my ashes will rise a new phoenix. A soaring being returning from death proving once again that life is eternal. I live forever because the spirit never dies.”
The war will go on for a long time to come, until tyranny comes to an end and men see justice and honour in all aspects of life. So far we have only witnessed the battles. Battles are won and lost. Do not forget, Robert the Bruce of Scotland lost seven battles.
The spirit of Anwar will and never be broken by physical incarceration.
a huge democratic breakthrough as it demonstrates that money, muscle and political power aren’t enough to win elections, David can defeat Goliath and startups can trump monopolies. It’s emphatic enough to settle all doubts about PKR’s durability as a political force.
 Najib government is creating a new norm where any person praising the prime minister is judged with a different yardstick, referring to the new found love in  for the Chief Judge saying that Saiful was a credible witness.

The perception that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is being persecuted is fuelled by “glaring anomalies”, including not charging the complainant, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, in the opposition leader’s sodomy case, says the Malaysian Bar.
Malaysian Bar President Christopher Leong said today the charge against Anwar was based on a provision of the Penal Code that has rarely been used.
“Given this, it is remarkable that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has beenMalaysian Bar President Christopher Leongprosecuted and convicted twice for an alleged offence of sexual acts between adults wherein the charge does not contain elements of coercion. It is a strange world that we live in. These glaring anomalies fuel a perception that Anwar has been persecuted, and not prosecuted,” Leong said in a statement in capital Kuala Lumpur.
The Federal Court yesterday dismissed Anwar’s appeal against the conviction and five-year jail sentence for sodomising Saiful in Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur in June 2008.
Anwar was charged under Section 337B of the Penal Code which provides a jail term of up to 20 years and caning, upon conviction. It was read together with Section 337A of the Penal Code, which criminalises sodomy and oral sex.
Leong said it was notable that the PKR de facto leader was not charged under Section 377C of the Penal Code with forced sodomy or sodomy rape, although there may appear to have been some allegations of coercion made in the proceedings.
Section 377C, which provides for sodomy rape offences, states that whoever voluntarily commits sodomy “on another person without the consent, or against the will, of the other person, or by putting the other person in fear of death or hurt to the person or any other person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term of not less than five years and not more than twenty years, and shall also be liable to whipping”.
“It may be said that Anwar has been convicted of an offence, sentenced to five years’ imprisonment, and will be disqualified from being an MP with respect to a charge that seems, on its face, to be a victimless offence.
“This has also given rise to questions or concerns as to why the complainant, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, who was alleged to have been a participant in the act of sodomy, was not charged for abetment under sections 377A and 377B, read together with section 109, of the Penal Code,” added Leong.
The Federal Court yesterday found Anwar guilty of sodomising his former aide Saiful in a condominium unit at Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, on June 26, 2008.
Anwar was handed a five-year jail term .In the summary of his judgment, Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria found that claims of political conspiracy by the defence team remained an unsubstantiated allegation. He also agreed with the High Court and Court of Appeal that Saiful was a credible witness.
Several countries, including the US, the United Kingdom, European Union (EU), Canada and Australia, have expressed concerns about the Federal Court’s verdict. They said that Anwar’s case raises questions about the independence and fairness of Malaysia’s Judiciary, and the country’s Rule of Law.
The High Commission of Canada said it was also concerned about selective prosecution under the Sedition Act in the country.

 Police closing a case by saying it was another instance of "all sins are pardonable" for Najib sympathizers. had cases of bungling against her and absolving her now betrayed political considerations.
  We live in the BN's Alice in Wonderland world of judicial justice. One where two carefully selected special unit police bodyguards of the deputy prime minister (DPM) suddenly kidnap, kill and blow up a Mongolian woman whom they did not know and are sentenced to death. However, the "motive is not known and need not be known". The person giving the orders and covering up the case is free.
Najib's outfit as a symbol of corruption. PM talks of skill development. He should himself develop the skill of telling the truth,"Then we have a sodomy case where all the international observers, jurists and laymen agree that this Saiful Bukhari Azlan character who does no work, has no qualifications but can afford to live in luxury and comfort with his family, is a believable witness. All contrary evidence is not acceptable, except those of the prosecution.

Kim Quek's points are telling. The doubts about the evidence based on the semen should have been enough to bring about an acquittal. What more the circumstances in which the prosecution was brought and the man who was charged.

Judges are not crackers packed in a vacuum box to maintain their freshness, they are living beings who must be alive to the truths beyond the prosecution and the evidence. And sodomy at that.

Are we to believe that we are still living in an age when five elderly judges will consider such a crime against such a person without knowing the circumstances in which it was brought? Are we to believe them to be automatons making decisions from a vacuum pack?
With controversy still simmering over yesterday's Federal Court verdict throwing Anwar Ibrahim into jail, an independent observer has described the judgement as 'superficial, failing to adequately deal with key issues brought up by the defence team'.

Inter-Parliamentary Union observer and Queen's Counsel Mark Trowell pointed out that Chief Justice Arifin Zakaria's findings on the DNA material effectively ignored the testimony of Professor Dr David Wells and Dr Brian McDonald both who raised serious doubts as to the integrity of victim Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan's DNA samples.
Senior UMNO  leaders who have been keeping their grievances to themselves for the last nine months, suddenly started calling up each other and talked about the "mistakes" that had been made by the party leadership or just asking "what is happening?" as the first signs of breaking the silence that had taken over since Najib came to office. The murmurs in the party against some of the decisions taken by Najib-Rosmah leadership grew louder According to party sources, the arrogance and even misbehaviour of UMNO ministers  but it has already blown lid off the voices of dissent that have been brewing among the "disregarded"  the voices of protest are getting louder even if it is in hushed tones so far, but the leaders are planning to put their grievances and criticisms across at party fora, now that the opportunity has come up 
Right now, the supporters of Prime Minister and UMNO President Datuk Seri Najib Razak are in the midst of a psy-war against his critics, some resorting to the old party playbook of sex allegations and financial scandals to all-out cyber attacks.
While Tun Daim Zainuddin has been quiet, his former boss, Malaysia’s longest-serving Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, has turned up the ante by offering caustic comments about a leadership he no longer supports.
Najib as 1MDB advisorHis Leadership at Stake
For Najib, it is his leadership at stake. For Dr Mahathir and his supporters, it is UMNO’s fate at the next general elections as the party and BN have collectively lost more votes in the last two federal polls.This could have prompted the eminent G25 moderate Malays, who have taken on the media platform to voice their concerns about the state of affairs in the country.
They may be just speaking their minds out, but what they have said makes a lot of sense, especially since this country cannot continue to run on injustices done to another fellow being. Their voices may indeed represent the voices of the silent majority.
From what I can see, Najib is now trapped. He has no choice but to veer further right, and possibly see an alliance with PAS or even the Mahathir camp as the only way to fortify his position.
However, should that happen, it would immediately split PAS into two, with one camp following its president, Hadi Awang and another camp working closely with Pakatan.
And, giving in to Mahathir’s camp may only mean an early demise of his own political career. Barely seven years ago, Najib has seen how Abdullah Badawi was forced to vacate the position by Dr Mahathir and he is fighting hard to ward off Mahathir’s missiles.
Given his precarious position and Dr Mahathir firing ‘solid’ bullets at him, and now, Anwar is no longer a threat to Mahathir’s camp, Najib has too much to lose the moment he stepped down. It will not be a do or die with Dr Mahathir.
In the past, Dr Mahathir has seen how a free Anwar was able to steal the people’s heart causing people to revolt against him, especially when Mahathir tried to topple Abdullah Badawi in the run up to the 2008 General Election, but now, with Anwar being thrown into prison, the people lack a leader.
It is public knowledge that Mahathir can now have a freehand with his campaign to remove Najib. By any calculations, Najib would rather have the people divided, than for them to become too strong that he can no longer hold on to the country’s top position.
Going by the media reports on 1MDB, Riza Aziz and Jho Low, when a more united front is led by one of his successor in UMNO, Najib may end up being thrown into prison himself as a scapegoat for all of UMNO’s sins, should he be convicted for corruption or for other trumped up charges.
As these theories were being flaunted, for my few friends from Sarawak, they vow to cast their vote against any party that is linked to Barisan Nasional. “That’s for sure!” concluded one of them.
