Candid AGM ke10 PAS Kota Raja & Najib Jeneral perang tanpa askar

Posted: 15 Apr 2012 06:37 AM PDT

AGM PAS Kota Raja kali ke 10 pada hari ini begitu penting untuk PAS Kota Raja bagi memastikan PAS Kota Raja terus memacu kemenangan di Kota Raja pada PRU akan datang.

PAS Kota Raja sejak akhir-akhir ini menjelang PRU 13 kali ini mendapat durian runtuh dengan semakin ramai yang menyokong perjuangan Parti ini samaada dari ahli PAS sendiri mahu pun dengan kebanjiran keahlian baru yang menyertai PAS dengan meninggalkan perjuangan Barisan Nasional yang sudah tidak releven lagi bagi mereka.

Dengan setiap ahli PAS begitu komited dengan tugas dan tanggungjawab di Cawangan-Cawangan serta Daerah Mengundi bagi meneruskan kemenangan .... Umno Selangor dan Kota Raja pula seakan lumpuh dengan aktiviti peringkat akar umbi mati begitu sahaja (tambahan Ketua Bahagian pun tak pernah tunjuk muka). Umno tidak mampu menggerakkan parti pada peringkat ini. Harapan mereka hanya pada Najib ... maka Najib bolehlah dianggap sebagai Jeneral perang tanpa askar.

Umno Selangor hanya mengharapkan Najib untuk bergerak begitu juga dengan negeri-negeri lain. Ini bagus untuk Pakatan Rakyat bergerak secara bersepadu bagi menangkis setiap janji-janji Najib menjelang PRU ini. Nampaknya PR khususnya PAS begitu selesa untuk menambah kerusi di Selangor untuk mematikan impian Najib merampas Selangor.

Kukuhkan ukhwah - ikut sunnah Nabi - antara inti pati ucapan TYDP untuk terus mara
25.5.2012 Najib bubar Parlimen, 6.6.2012 hari penamaan calun 7 16.6.2012 hari mengundi
Antara peringatan Pengarah Pilihanraya PAS Selangor

Penuh Iltizam untuk mempertahan Parlimen Kota Raja, Selangor dan mara kePutrajaya
menjadi cetusan membara setiap perwakilan pada mesyuarat agung pagi tadi.
Barisan Nasional meletakkan Kota Raja sebagai tanda aras - TEWAS di Kota Raja maka berkecailah
harapan BN untuk merampas Selangor dan mempertahn Putrajaya : Najib kerap kali berulang ke Kota
Raja bagi tujuan ini, tapi semangat petugas PAS Kota Raja semakin mantap - Umno dan MIC Kota Raja
pasti menyampah melihant barisan hadapan Jentera Pilihanraya PAS Kota Raja ini.

Sokongan mantap dari Jentera DHPP bagi membantu mempertahankan kemenangan
YB Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud walau pun pertambahan pengundi begitu mendadak masuk
ke Kota Raja.

PAS FOR ALL - Ramai bekas wanita MIC kini bersama PAS 



Pengerusi DHPP Kota Raja merangkap Pengerusi DHPP Selangor dan juga Setiausaha
DHPP Pusat memberi jaminan akan bekerja keras bagi memenangkan calun PAS pada
PRU kali ini - komitment dan kerja kuat mereka sukar dinafikan.


Siap sedia melangkah ke Dataran Merdeka pada 28.04.2012 nanti.

Komik puji pentadbiran Najib diedarkan di sekolah...?

Posted: 14 Apr 2012 06:20 PM PDT

 

KUALA LUMPUR, 13 April — Komik transformasi yang memuji kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) telah mula diedarkan di kalangan guru-guru sejak beberapa minggu kebelakangan ini, dikatakan diagihkan jabatan pendidikan negeri.



Komik berwarna setebal 50 muka surat itu menampilkan karikatur seperti pemimpin politik utama dari gabungan pemerintah yang digambarkan dari sudut terbaik.

Sebaliknya, pemimpin pembangkang digambarkan bersikap negatif dan jahat, seperti pada muka surat 31, yang menunjukkan seorang lelaki bercermin mata bersama dua lelaki separuh bogel yang dilihat dikaitkan dengan pesaing Najib, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Penasihat PPKR itu dituduh meliwat bekas pembantunya Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, bagaimanapun dibebaskan oleh Mahkamah Tinggi awal bulan ini setelah mengambil masa hampir tiga tahun untuk perbicaraan.

"Kementerian Pelajaran boleh mengadakan mesyuarat dengan kami bila-bila masa. Kali ini, kami diberi taklimat tentang pencapaian kerajaan sejak beberapa tahun lalu," kata seorang guru kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Guru itu yang meletakkan syarat agar namanya dirahsiakan berkata telah menghadiri satu taklimat bertajuk "Wacana Transformasi Minda" anjuran jabatan pendidikan negeri yang disertai pengetua sekolah dan guru penolong kanan.

"Kami telah diberitahu bahawa kerajaan merupakan kerajaan yang baik tetapi tiada arahan untuk mengundi sesiapa.

"Tetapi setiap daripada kami mendapat buku, yang menyokong diri sendiri," tambah guru itu.

Mandat pemerintahan BN akan berakhir suku pertama tahun depan dan spekulasi mengatakan pilihan raya umum akan diadakan awal, mungkin beberapa bulan akan datang.

Guru merupakan populasi terbesar bagi tenaga kerja awam, antara sasaran terpenting untuk menyokong BN.

Bukan semua sekolah menerima komik itu. Beberapa guru yang dihubungi The Malaysian Insider tidak mengetahu tentang perkara itu.

Kementerian Pelajaran masih belum memberikan sebarang respons tentang perkara itu.

Buku komik itu dikatakan diterbitkan Mj Publication Sdn Bhd, yang beralamat di No 12/9, Jalan Jati 2, Persiaran Barat, 68000 Ampang, Selangor.

Bagaimanapun carian dalam direktori perniagaan gagal mencari alamat itu. Pemeriksaan di Google Maps juga menunjukkan alamat itu tidak wujud, sekaligus menimbulkan keraguan penerbit itu.

Komik itu juga tidak memaparkan permit pencetak, yang merupakan satu syarat yang dikehendaki Kementerian Dalam Negeri.

The Malaysian Insider berjaya mendapatkan satu salinan komik itu yang menggambarkan karikatur Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak yang memegang bendera kebangsaan dn satu kumpulan yang mewakili pelbagai etnik Malaysia dengan perkataan, "Saya tidak akan memecahkan kepercayaan anda" di muka hadapan komik itu.

Pelbagai jenis gambar-gambar yang memuji kepimpinan dan dasar-dasar BN, seperti bagaimana pentadbiran Najib membantu menyediakan insentif-insentif kepada belia di bawah konsep 1Malaysia.

Pada halaman 38 juga menggambarkan Najib digambarkan seperti wira terkemuka dan terbang di atas orang ramai yang memanggilnya "Hi!Superman".(malaysianinsider)

Please bear in mind that a new era has begun, Bosses, watch your back infact, watch where you tread your path as well. Too many backdoor dealings, plenty even through the ceiling trapdoors and latelly even through sewer manholes, that is why it has been smelling so bad of late. The pen is mightier than the sword. the web permeates through even the stiffest surface..
What is wrong will be read as wrong and will not be misconstrued as right by the oppressed.God and the Universe is watching you and your souls will soon be restless until eternity.

CCF meant to save AirAsia under the pretext that MAS needed help. For a start which arilines going to buy the 200 airbuses that were committed ot purchase by TF? AA X already cut its room by another 4 to only about 7 routes from 13 originally. Where is the Pariah going to do with the excess aircraft of 6 where the routes were cut?

We know that Amok, TF and Rashdan are very close friends. I hope that the PM will now that theis this shae swap and CCf filled with conflicts of interest.

MAS staff got to stand up against this bloody Nanny Danny, who is a disgrace to the Malay. If he dare come out to deny that he upgraded his maid to First Class. The Voyage Reports have been ciculated all over MAS.

All CCF activities must be stopped immediately. Shame NoLLAN and PlaneConsult must be told to get out of MAS premises.THey are not working in the interest of MAS bu AirAsia and AAX.

Ptui! PTI! PTUI! PTUI! PTUI! to the TRIO and Nanny Rashdan and family. Since you dare to swear in Allah’s name, MESTI MAKAN DIRI AKHIRNYA.

Didn’t know that the CCF also extended to whatever that are owned by the Pariah, MAS had to contribute monetary or facilities. But not the other way around.

The examples are the 18 million sponsorship of QPR home jersey, the killing of Firefly jet service and the recent uplifting of the AA X passengers.

Nanny the Danny please get out of MAS. You and your immediate boss Azman Mokhtar are the main culprits in this dirty deal. MAS staffs mud do wheat we can to get rid of this scum of the earth from MAS.

From what have been exposed this bast..rd only deserve to e in hell if there is room for him.

Danny boy, by the way have upgraded your maid to your master bedroom with your shameless wife. A good wife wold have advised the Danny boy cum bullshitter to stop the maid from coming to the First Class cabin.

Good day YB

Thank you for your efforts on the mas/AA issue.

1) We refer to the article on dca pilots flying with honorary ATPL with AA.

The pilot of the AA plane that crashed in kuching was believed to be an ex-dca pilot. It will be interesting to know if he was holding an honorary atpl???
If he was, then that flight would be an illegal flight!

AA will have to reimburse the insurance company that underwrite the crashed plane as the flight would have been illegal to start with, as there is no insurance coverage for illegal flights.

They can use the honorary atpl only in Malaysia and that also for check flights, not as operating crew of a flight. You can check this with CAA of UK. Our laws are adapted from CAA UK.

AA will be in serious trouble with the civil aviation authorities of the countries that AA fly to in this asia pacific region for this breech if improperly licensed pilots.
You should forward this to the various aviation authorities in this asia pacific region for them to access the legality and safety issues of the situation. (including list of the "honorary" names) Nobody wants an illegal flight into their country.

2) Is there a anyway to find out if AA-X has a valid and legal AOC (air operators cert.) ?
AA-x was born out of FAX which in turn was born out of RAS/mas, east Malaysia ops.
AOC as we understand is "operator specific" and is "operations specific".
If the original AOC was for FAX for rural air service ops, then without specific approvals and changes/amendments, AA-x ops will be questionable…….since day one ???

3) We have heard that AA-x is trying very hard to offload/sell to mas their excess A330 planes after their route cuts and new planes coming in.

Their planes are HD seating configuration and does not meet mas requirement but AA-x is pushing/forcing hard.
AA is also trying to force mas to sell off their own B737 and buy AA's excess A320's which they overbought and now cannot use or sell.

Open Letter to Dr M: Is The Tun Hallucinating?

Posted: 15 Apr 2012 05:44 AM PDT

Malaysia Chronicle

My dear Tun Dr Mahathir

I'm at a loss as to whether you are hallucinating or failing to see the reality.

Your views on Penang and Selangor are misconceived and misplaced. You come across as a dishonest politician determined to score political points and mislead Malaysian voters. You do no credit to yourself nor do you live up to your reputation as an elder statesman (Bernama, 29 January 2012).

Your statement, "They have already been given a lot of chances. A lot of unhappy things have happened in Penang, the same (is happening) in Selangor," does not make any sense at all. "They have been given a lot of chances", you unreasonably claim.

Pakatan only came to power on March 8, 2008. They have been in office only for four short years. What chances were given to them and who gave them those chances? What are you talking about? What miracles were you expecting them to perform in this short period of time?

Compare their short term of office to the Barisan Nasional's nearly 55 years of tenure – truthfully and honestly. We can justifiably throw back at the BN the very words you had uttered: "They (BN) have already been given a lot of chances. A lot of unhappy things have happened in Penang, the same (is happening) in Selangor." This is indeed a valid observation requiring an honest answer from you, dear Tun.

More than half a century

Indeed, 55 years is a very long time. It is more than half a century. The BN have been given all the chances it wanted and needed. But what have the BN achieved during their long tenure in office except undermining our unity and keeping the people apart? Our unity has been destroyed by senseless and thoughtless policies and statements without a care for the welfare of the majority of Malaysians who are peace-loving and poor.

Yes, Tun, if anybody had been given too much chance it is the BN. Indeed, what more can the BN do which they had failed to do during these 55 years? What miracles can the BN now perform to transform this country into a haven for all citizens and provide them with a dignified livelihood?

What do you actually mean by claiming, "They have been given the chance. What's there left to try. If we allow the situation to deteriorate badly, it will be difficult to repair."

Your rambling statement, "If we allow the situation to deteriorate badly, it will be difficult to repair" comes across as ridiculous and garrulous. What has the Pakatan done that has brought about the deterioration? What is that they are doing that would render the problem beyond repair? Please be specific and enumerate the wrongdoings of the Pakatan.

Don’t make statements you can’t back up

Tun, you should not make sweeping claims that are without merit. Many Malaysians are truly disappointed and disillusioned with you and justifiably feel that you have out-lived your usefulness as a political leader. You had your time and you did things the way you wanted to. That period is over and done with. There is nothing more for you to do.

Both Penang and Selangor have attracted the biggest FDI totalling more than RM15bn, which is unmatched by the BN-controlled states. Doesn't this indicate positively that the Pakatan-controlled states are performing very much better in spite of their short term of tenure and lack of administrative experience and expertise? Honestly, dear Tun, doesn't that deserve some praise?

You kept everything under wraps and resorted to the Official Secrets Act (OSA) to deny citizens their right to be informed. A lot of scandals and corruption prevailed because they are kept from the purview of public scrutiny and guarded as state secrets.

The Pakatan-controlled states in Selangor and Penang, on the other hand, have promulgated a Freedom of Information Act in order to be transparent and accountable. Tun, isn't this something that has to be complimented?

Cronies and corruption

Under your tenure for 22 years, many crony politicians became wealthy beyond imagination and without being accountable for their wealth. Elected representatives and cabinet ministers declared their assets only to you and, according to certain well-informed circles, you had used this information to secure their unquestioning loyalty. That was how you had your way – it was your way and no other way!

We are reminded of the episode concerning the removal of Osman Aroff, the then Menteri Besar of Kedah, who had enjoyed the support of the majority of assembly members in Kedah. These assembly members went to see you, dear Tun, to plead for the retention of their MB. You, reportedly saw them individually and after that they all returned to Kedah abandoning Osman Aroff. Rumour had it then that you had a file on each of them and that forced them to fall in line behind you.

Dear Tun, Pakatan-controlled states of Selangor and Penang did something that you wouldn't dare dream of doing. All their Exco members declared their assets publically. This is something that civil society of Malaysia has been campaigning for, for a very long time, claiming that this would curb corruption and check abuse of governance.

But you would not be persuaded. You wanted to be the sole privy to the corruption and abuse so that you would have absolute control over politicians holding public positions.

Many Malaysians, in the past, have worked loyally and faithfully and had contributed to the progress of this country. These old timers who retired many years ago are forced to struggle to live a hard life with their meagre pensions in these times of hardships. Their counterparts of modern times, on the other hand, draw reasonable pensions to lead a decent life. The hardships suffered by these senior citizens have not been addressed. Their contributions were not even acknowledged.

But the Pakatan government in Penang has been giving out RM100 once a year for the last three years to express their appreciation to these senior citizens. Admittedly, this isn't very much but the very thought of appreciation really warms the hearts of these people. With the vast resources available to the BN, they are placed in a far better situation to do more to help these unfortunate people. But why, dear Tun, did the BN government not bother doing this? They could have shown a generous face and given more to these people with all the wealth at their disposal. But they did nothing!

Corruption has become so rampant that so much of our wealth is either lost or stolen to the detriment of the nation. Contracts given to crony companies with inflated costs have drained our wealth. Highway toll agreements, the Tajuddin-Malaysia Airlines out-of-court settlement, the rescue of Bank Rakyat and Bank Bumiputra, the reckless forex fiasco in the UK, the bungling Maminco tin-buying spree, to name a few – they have all resulted in the loss of billions of ringgit that could have alleviated the plight of the poor. These are, unfortunately, dear Tun, your legacies that brought terrible hardships for the homeless and the helpless.

Uplifting the people

You wouldn't have open tenders for projects that would have saved billions of ringgit and secured the services of contractors with ability and proven expertise. That would have prevented some contractors from running away without completing their projects and ensured that buildings wouldn't collapse because of poor workmanship and inferior materials. But repeated episodes of cheating contractors and uncompleted projects did not seem to disturb the conscience of those in charge. It was business as usual and billions of ringgit were regularly squandered without a care in the world.

On the other hand, now we have open tenders in the Pakatan states and Class F contractors are very happy and contented with this arrangement. According to these contractors, under the previous BN government, one had to have connections to get a contract and one had to give inducements to be considered favourably. Otherwise, getting contracts would have been impossible. But now, with open tenders, the deserving have been rewarded with contracts and they have delivered the completed projects on time. Isn't this something that has to be appreciated, dear Tun?

Malaysian workers have been struggling for years for a minimum wage policy. The Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) has been championing this issue for decades. But it was opposed vehemently by the Malaysian Employers Federation, which wanted to reap hefty profits from the sweat of the workers. And the Malaysian government did not have the political will to implement the minimum wage policy. Thus we lost our local skilled workers and builders who left the country to work elsewhere. But the exploitation continues to this day with the employment of foreign workers.

Isn't it praiseworthy that the Pakatan government in Selangor has implemented a minimum wage policy for all its employees in GLCs as from January this year? They are paid a minimum salary of RM1,500. Shouldn't the employees enjoy the fruit of their labour, dear Tun?

Farmers in the new villages of Perak who have been tilling the land and growing vegetables and fruit for the country for generations were exploited and kept in a state of uncertainty as to their livelihood as they did not own the land. Every election this became a moot point for the farmers. Whether their TOL would be extended or cancelled was a worrying experience for these farmers. And when the BN wins the election in Perak, the TOL of these farmers would be renewed. The message was very clear. Vote for the BN or your TOL would not be renewed. They were beholden to the BN for the extension of their TOL.

The Pakatan government gave them the land titles and their dignity and freed them from their unnecessary anxiety. The rational was these farmers have been on the land for generations and have been serving the nation with their produce and they deserved the land titles. Isn't this something wonderful that deserves to be congratulated, dear Tun?

Every voter who dies in Penang and Selangor is given RM1,000 and RM2,500 respectively for funeral expenses. This assistance is greatly appreciated, especially by the poor. For the first time a voter receives something very specific and substantial when he or she dies. This had never happened under BN rule. They bribe the living for their vote and forget them when they are dead. Under the Pakatan rule they take care of the living and the dead! Don't they deserve a pat on their back, dear Tun?

All this caring and giving must make a great impact on the people. If given more time there will be other good policies that will benefit the people and perhaps make it difficult for the BN to make any headway in the future. Is that what is worrying you, dear Tun? Is this what you meant when you sounded the warning to the BN, "If we allow the situation to deteriorate, it will be difficult to repair"?

You have correctly foreseen the inevitable doom for the BN. You have realised that it will be difficult to undo the good deeds of the Pakatan. In comparison, the BN will be cast in poor light and cursed for neglecting the majority of the deserving Malaysians who are poor. You are seeing what is impending and you have the right to fear the inevitable, dear Tun!
