Lapsing into Sterility: The Sorry State of UMNO's PAU and Cerita Kerajaan 3 Segi

How do you feel after a few days of theatrical choreographed orgy of Minion Leaders from the Ruling Party who thinks that they are the ONE AND ONLY outsource partner by the Raja2 Melayu to stand in the front lines of any assault on the Malays, Bumiputra and the Islamic Religion.

Bole belah?

For how many years have we not heard the same message being played over and over again.

Brani kira?

Go all the way back to Tun Mahathir's time...

Then try a little bit of Badawi...

And finally for the main course lap up the recent PAUs under Najib

Anything different?

At least in 2006 we had Mukhriz who dared to go against the norm

Mukhriz dibidas kerana perlekeh ucapan dasar Abdullah
KUALA LUMPUR 16 Nov 2006 -- Beberapa pemimpin UMNO hari ini membidas Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir yang menyifatkan ucapan dasar Presiden UMNO, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi semalam sebagai tiada mengandungi idea baru. (here)

This time tight grip...ada Solidariti ...jangan main main..

Year in year out we hear about their open admission that the party itself is in need of a serious repair

Be it from their conduct, their lifestyles, how they engage the new electorate, how they carry their perjuangan, new media, cyber this cyber that dan lain lain benda basi...

Don't you think that they need to fix themselves first before wanting to fix the problems for the Malays, the Bumi and the Muslim Ummah?

Anyway UMNO members allow me to share with you something divine.....

Beribu tahun dahulu this Ayat came down... oh sebelum gua lupa kat Malaysia ramai yg sembah Allah, selain dari orang Islam. Check my Allah out.
YOU ARE OBSESSED by greed for more and more (2) until you go down to your graves.1 (3)Nay, in time you will come to understand! (4) And once again:2 Nay, in time you will come to understand! (5) Nay, if you could but understand [it] with an understanding [born] of certainty, (6) you would indeed, most surely, behold the blazing fire [of hell]!3 (7) In the end you will indeed, most surely, behold it with the eye of certainty:4 (8) and on that Day you will most surely be called to account for [what you did with] the boon of life! 

 The term takathur bears the connotation of "greedily striving for an increase", i.e., in benefits, be they tangible or intangible, real or illusory. In the above context it denotes man's obsessive striving for more and more comforts, more material goods, greater power over his fellow-men or over nature, and unceasing technological progress. A passionate pursuit of such endeavours, to the exclusion of everything else, bars man from all spiritual insight and, hence, from the acceptance of any restrictions and inhibitions based on purely moral values - with the result that not only individuals but whole societies gradually lose all inner stability and, thus, all chance of happiness (Muhammad Assad The Message of the Quran Al Takathur (The Piling Up) here)

Krik Krik Krik

Let's go on.

Can I ask you all UMNO people a question?

Don't you realise that Allah has pointed this out giler lama dah.

Yang lu orang duk terhegeh hegeh ni pehal?

Fix that

Are you all fired up to take on the issues affecting our society?

Did you get that from the hambar?

Or from watching it...

Do you feel INSPIRED at all

I didn't watch any of it live.

Prefer to read the text instead. So today gua pun pergi cari la kat Google. Jumpa la a few links including the UMNO Official site (here)

Brader sorry minta maaf gua carik tak jumpa boleh bantu?

Gua pun tweet la benda ni

Sampai sekarang gua tunggu belum jawap.

Cyber itu ini ni benda 24 jam la pakcik.

Yg gua pelik tu pehal tak upload like 5 minutes after the speech.

Susah sangat ke?

Anyway today actually gua nak cakap sikit pasal perception Kerajaan Tiga Segi

PM as the someone who is acting on the Executive power to govern from YDPA, he can technically be in 3 places when he is undertaking the function.

How he does this is beyond my knowledge but what I see is his action.

What we saw in the last few days was this 3segi in action

Take the Sedition Act. It started with a speech for reasons beyond my understanding...a possible Bottom Left Kerajaan 3Segi observation...


Snowballed into NUCC

Remember them folks?

This is what they were supposed to do after being formed

Source here

Instead they focused on Harmony Act apekelancau ntah

Takde sape suruh main petik aja Janji Najib on Sedition Act kat website as part of their justification....

When he realised that they've gone rogue he came forward

KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak criticised the Bar Council today for openly discussing the contents of the yet-to-be finalised national harmony Bills, hailed as progressive laws that have met strong resistance from conservative members of the establishment. The prime minister said the disclosure was against the spirit on which the National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) was founded, adding that the consultation process in drafting the laws were meant to be done “confidentially”. “NUCC is not the right forum and platform to discuss this… it is meant to be done confidentially,” Najib told reporters after chairing the Umno supreme council meeting here. “What the Bar Council is doing is against the purpose of the NUCC. All the discussions and details should be discussed behind closed doors,” he said, but without naming anyone in particular. (here)

Anyway you all remember when I wrote about the need for consent about any amendments of Sedition Act 1948 (here) ?

Allow me to reproduce the key point from that...

 Article 159 (5)
(5) A law making an amendment to Clause (4) of Article 10, any law passed thereunder, the provisions of part iii, Article 38, Clause (4) of Article 63, Article 70, Clause (1) of Article 71, Clause (4) of Article 72, Article 152, or 153 or to this Clause shall not be passed without the consent of the Conference of Rulers.

The Sedition Act changes in the 1969/70 was made under the Clauses of Article 10 (4)

Article 10 Freedom of speech, assembly and association. 
(1) Subject to Clauses (2), (3) and (4)— (a) every citizen has the right to freedom of speech and expression; 
(2) parliament may by law impose— (a) on the rights conferred by paragraph (a) of Clause (1), such restrictions as it deems necessary or expedient in the interest of the security of the Federation or any part thereof, friendly relations with other countries, public order or morality and restrictions designed to protect the privileges of parliament or of any Legislative Assembly or to provide against contempt of court, defamation, or incitement to any offence;
(4) in imposing restrictions in the interest of the security of the Federation or any part thereof or public order under paragraph (a) of Clause (2), parliament may pass law prohibiting the questioning of any matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of part iii, Article 152, 153 or 181 otherwise than in relation to the implementation thereof as may be specified in such law (source Federal Constitution

Bukan YDPA aje beb..... Conference of Rulers

Fantastic situation don't you think.

Now we got a possible observation from the bottom right of the triangle a few days back with the "UTurn announcement" and subsequent clarifications...

I was disappointed

Gua tweet dia....jarang gua buat

Cause if you did that you wouldn't hear this

Source here

Well worry not people the thumbs are up

All fine and dandy now. Let's chill and watch this unravel further.

“Najib’s announcement will have no effect if the court decided that the Sedition Act is invalid,” Gobind said when met by Astro AWANI.
Lawyer Yusmadi Yusoff, said although the court will soon decided on the validity of the Sedition Act 1948, the decision will not prevent Najib from obtaining a new ‘mandate’ in Parliament, by creating a new version of the Act.
Yusmadi said, if the court decides that the Sedition Act is invalid, Najib may create ‘Sedition Act 2.0’. “We have to remember the court is set to decide only on the Sedition Act 1948. Najib can still create a new version of the Act,” he said.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced during his keynote address at the 68th Umno General Assembly on Thursday that the Sedition Act 1948 will be maintained and strengthened. He added the amendments to the Act will be tabled at the upcoming Dewan Rakyat session. Read more here 

Anyway whatever happened to Muhyidin's cadangan?

Isn't that just way too obvious folks?

We heard the term Pengkaderan....

Apa hasil satu tahun?

Now we hear Peremajaan

While Opposition favourite mascot is still out there somewhere...

Well I've heard of how great she is and all...

But what does she represent to the man on the street? How many of that across your whole eco-system?

I can go on but I think you know what I mean rite.

So go fix yourself up UMNO

Inspire the Malays and Bumiputras again.

Drastic moves are required... no doubt... but sometimes you gotto do what you got to do...

As for issues affecting the Malays, Bumiputra and Islam I think it deserves a separate post altogether in a more neutral setting instead of being cluttered with UMNO's noise.

Gnite folks

PS: Mr Prime Minister you need to effectively manage the Public Perception of the Triangle, how critical decisions are being made and announced to the public. Your competitor can't even get their leaders to sit together and endorse a policy. You on the other hand has the institutional knowledge embedded in Barisan, armed with UMNO's core spirit and the Al Quran and Sunnah to guide you. Tak bole la main selamba dog aje terjah policy action camtu. We the Rakyat can see through all that

An Open Letter to UMNO PAU Delegates: You are barking at the wrong tunggul

Dear PAU Delegates

I write to you today as a concerned citizen of Malaysia. I'm fully aware of some of your intentions to debate the existence of Vernacular Education within our National Education system.

It seems that your top leaders in the party is getting jittery and have put the "moderation" gear on overdrive these past 48hours.

Frankly, I would suggest for you to look at the Matahari and Bulan promise made by your Deputy President, the Malay First Malaysian Second according of Lim Kit Siang

Watch him at minute 1:49 to 2:00 and hear how the Ahbengs do their Ching Chong Clap

His boss your party supremo has gone on record at the recent MCA assembly to say

“Don’t worry about Chinese vernacular schools. Chinese education has always been a part of the Constitution and its continuity is ensured in the national education blueprint,” source here

So we got the current serving Minister of Education promising Matahari dan Bulan and another doing his interpretation of the Constitution.

On the other side you've got Barking Dogs who goes around saying that questioning the existence and advocating closure of Vernacular Education is Seditious

Is Inequality Color Blind?

Income and Wealth inequality is a long standing problem. It is harmful to society in various ways that one can imagine. Allow me to share with you a Social Epidemiologist take on the subject matter rather than an economist view point.

Please spend the next 15 minutes to watch this TED Talk by Richard Wilkinson, Co-Author of the Spirit Level (2010), a book that raised a lot of eyebrows simply because the statistical observation apparently didn't meet the technical scrutiny (here). Both the Authors responded to all their critique and launched The Equality Trust (here), a social movement with a goal to improve quality of life in the UK and reducing economic inequality.


Merbahaya.....gerun level 5

Fast forward to 2014, when the Non French speaking people of the planet finally got their hands on Capital In the 21st Century by the French Economist Thomas Piketty.

Sedition R Us: A word of caution to GHAH

Guess what folks....a new "movement" was initiated....

KUALA LUMPUR: A new movement, comprising 112 NGOs, has been set up to pressure for the abolition of the Sedition Act. The Abolish the Sedition Act Movement includes Suara Rakyat Malaysia, Lawyers for Liberty and Amnesty International Malaysia. The group said in a joint statement today that the Sediction Act was broadly defined and easily open to abuse by the government. They said over the past one month, the Sedition Act had been used against opposition leaders, a law professor and a journalist in a new wave of political repression and terror. Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall Civil Rights committee chairman Liau Kok Fah said the charges under the Sedition Act was similar to Ops Lalang. “Is this the Ops. Lalang 2.0?” he asked. The movement wants the Sedition Act 1948 repealed and all charges against the people involved dropped with no replacement Act introduced with similar draconian provisions. In 2012 and 2013, Prime Minister Najib Razak had promised to repeal the Sedition Act but had failed to do so, as the recent crackdown had shown. Also present at the press conference was social activist Hishamuddin Rais, who is among those charged under Act. (here)

It seems that most folks are pre-occupied with the "promise" made by Najib

14. Semasa pembentangan Rang Undang-undang Kesalahan Keselamatan (Langkah-Langkah Khas) di Dewan Rakyat pada 16 April 2012 yang lalu, saya telah mengumumkan bahawa Kerajaan akan mengkaji semula secara komprehensif Akta Hasutan 1948 tanpa mengetepikan apa-apa opsyen, yakni sama ada untuk meminda peruntukan-peruntukan yang sedia ada atau memansuhkan Akta yang sudah berusia lebih 64 tahun tersebut sama sekali. 

15. Kerajaan telah membuat keputusan agar Akta Hasutan 1948 dimansuhkan dan digantikan dengan suatu rang undang-undang yang dikenali sebagai Akta Keharmonian Nasional. Keputusan menggantikan Akta Hasutan dibuat kerana kita mahu mencari mekanisme yang dapat menentukan keseimbangan terbaik di antara keperluan menjamin kebebasan bersuara setiap warganegara sesuai dan selaras dengan peruntukan dan jaminan yang terkandung di dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan keperluan untuk menangani kompleksiti kemajmukan yang wujud di negara ini. (here)
It went from "Mengkaji semula secara Komprehensif" to "telah membuat keputusan agar Akta Hasutan 1948 dimansuhkan"

My first question would be where is the output of the Kajian Semula Secara Komprehensif?

Bole tengok tak? Ke National Secret? Takkan takde white paper on the Pro and Cons of the retaining Act and what should the framework of reform be?

And my bigger question ......have you consulted Majlis Raja Raja?

Why so you may ask
