TPPA

1.   Pihak Kerajaan tidak peduli akan apa saja cara penentangan dilakukan oleh sesiapa saja di Malaysia atau di luar negara yang meminta agar tidak menandatangani TPPA. Mereka akan meneruskan juga menandatangani perjanjian ini.

2.   Menteri MITI menyakinkan kita bahawa kita boleh membatalkan perjanjian ini pada bila-bila masa.
3.   Benar, kita boleh membatalkan perjanjian ini. Akan tetapi, ia tidak mudah untuk dilakukan dan melibatkan kos yang akan memufliskan kita.

4.   Dalam perjanjian TPPA, pihak syarikat boleh menyaman Kerajaan untuk kehilangan keuntungan termasuk keuntungan masa hadapan jika tindakan Kerajaan menyebabkan kerugian.

5.   Dalam satu kes yang berlaku di sebuah negara di Latin Amerika, pihak Kerajaan mengambil keputusan untuk menghentikan operasi perlombongan yang diberikan kepada sebuah syarikat Amerika. Pihak syarikat Amerika menyaman Kerajaan di atas kehilangan keuntungan termasuk keuntungan masa hadapan yang berjumlah beberapa bilion AS Dolar.

6.   Keputusan untuk menarik diri daripada TPPA akan menyebabkan kehilangan keuntungan dan kehilangan keuntungan masa hadapan oleh syarikat yang melabur di Malaysia atau berdagang dengan Malaysia.

7.   Penarikan diri akan melibatkan pelbagai syarikat dan melibatkan kerugian berjumlah berbilion ringgit. Kita tidak boleh mengharapkan simpati dan sikap ambil berat mengenai apa yang akan berlaku pada ekonomi dan kewangan kita daripada pihak mahkamah. Tiada cara yang boleh digunakan untuk memberi tekanan atau memberi rasuah kepada pihak mahkamah. Kita terpaksa membayar berbilion ringgit.

8.   Jadi, tolong jangan bercakap mengenai menarik diri daripada perjanjian yang mengawal perdagangan dan pelaburan yang dipanggil TPPA. Ia tidak mempromosi perdagangan bebas. Ia didedikasi untuk perlaksanaan perdagangan.

9.   Harus ingat bahawa kita tidak pernah menandatangani perjanjian seumpama ini apabila kita menjadi negara perdagangan ke17 terbesar di dunia. Kita bebas melindungi negara kita dan mengadakan polisi yang berguna untuk rakyat Malaysia. Pada masa itu, kita berkembang pesat. Kita berdagang dengan sesiapa sahaja yang kita suka.

10.  Saya boleh menyatakan banyak lagi perkara tidak elok mengenai TPPA tetapi Kerajaan tidak peduli. Kerajaan akan melakukan apa yang ia kehendaki. Jangan soal kenapa. Anda tahu apa jawapannya apabila menyoal Kerajaan.

SERANGAN DI PARIS 

1.   Setiap orang termasuk setiap orang yang berugama Islam harus mengutuk perbuatan pengecut yang dilakukan oleh orang Islam di Paris apabila 100 orang yang tidak berdosa telah terbunuh. Ini bukan hanya satu kejadian tetapi merangkumi satu siri serangan terancang di beberapa tempat di Paris. Sudah tentu, kejadian ini memberikan imej buruk kepada agama Islam serta penganutnya yang secara praktikal, memang dikaitkan agama Islam dengan keganasan.

2.   Ternyata, sesuatu harus dilakukan untuk memberhentikan serangan seumpama ini. Kerajaan Perancis sedang membentuk pasukan campuran untuk menentang ISIS dan menentang keganasan secara am. Kelihatan seluruh dunia bersedia untuk bergabung bagi menentang ISIS secara khusus.

3.   Jika kita bersedia untuk mengkaji sejarah, kita pasti menyedari keganasan telah meningkat sejak kebelakangan ini. Pengganas menjadi semakin menakutkan dan semakin ganas.

4.   Pihak yang mengambil berat pasti menyedari perbuatan keganasan ini banyak berlaku di negara-negara Arab di Timur Tengah. Senuanya bermula dengan pembentukan negara Israel di atas bumi Palestin. Penduduk Arab Palestin telah dibunuh beramai-ramai dan dihalau dari negara mereka oleh kumpulan pengganas Irgun dan Hagarah milik Israel. Mereka kehilangan tanah mereka, rumah mereka dan dusun buah-buahan mereka. Mereka terpaksa tinggal di kem pelarian yang menyedihkan di negara lain di kawasan berhampiran. Lebih 60 tahun mereka merana akibat daripada rampasan tanah ini. Pada mulanya, beberapa negara Arah cuba mengambil semula tanah milik Palestin menerusi perang konvensional. Dari tahun 1948 hingga tahun 1982 mereka menyerang Israel. Akan tetapi, setiap kali mereka dikalahkan oleh Isreal kerana Israel diberikan bantuan senjata, bantuan kewangan dan bantuan ketenteraan oleh Amerika dan negara Eropah.

5.   Negara Arab menerima kenyataan bahawa mereka tidak akan dapat mengalahkan Israel menerusi peperangan. Setelah tahun 1982, mereka berhenti mencuba. 

6.   Pada tahun 1987, Yasser Arafat menubuhkan kumpulan PLO Al Fatah dan memulakan intifada pertama. Pada awalnya, kanak-kanak Palestin membaling batu ke arah kereta kebal Israel. Pihak Israel membalas dengan menembak kanak-kanak Palestin dengan peluru getah dan peluru hidup serta membunuh, menangkap dan memenjara rakyat Palestin. Pihak Israel mengembangkan wilayah mereka dengan membina penempatan di atas tanah milik Palestin. Tidak pernah berlaku penubuhan penempatan di atas tanah milik orang lain. Akan tetapi, dunia tidak mengutuk Israel.

7.   Kemudian, rakyat Palestin menubuhkan unit gerila untuk menyerang Isrel dan Israel membalas dengan mengebom dan memusnahkan bandar dan kampung Arab. Ramai orang Arab ditahan dan dipenjarakan tanpa becara.

8.   Apabila rakyat Palestin mencari perlindungan di Lubnan, Israel menceroboh Lubnan dan membunuh ribuan pelarian Palestin yang berlindung di kem Sabra dan kem Shatila. Mereka memaksa pemecatan PLO dari Lubnan.

9.   Rakyat Palestin menggunakan bom berani mati. Kesannya, amat sedikit tetapi perbuatan mereka dilabel sebagai keganasan. Mereka juga menyerang Israel dengan menggunakan roket primitif tanpa sebarang kesan. 

10.  Israel membalas dengan menyerang Gaza, Jenin dan lain-lain bandar menggunakan roket sehingga ribuan rakyat terbunuh dan ratusan ribuan cedera.

11.  Bagi membina kembali rumah-rumah yang dimusnahkan oleh Israel dihalang oleh Israel dengan pengadang bangunan. Pengadang ini menghalang penghantaran makanan dan ubat-ubatan sampai ke Gaza dan kampung serta bandar yang telah dimusnahkan. Mereka yang terselamat terpaksa berlindung di runtuhan bangunan dan di khemah yang memdedahkan mereka pada cuaca dingin pada musim sejuk. Hingga ke hari ini, mereka masih tidak dapat membina kembali rumah mereka.

12.  Penduduk Gaza membuat roket primitif dan menyerang Israel dengan kesan kerosakan sedikit. Israel membalas kembali dengan menghantar roket dan mengebom Gaza dan menceroboh Gaza dan memusnahkan hampir keseluruhan bangunan termasuk sekolah dan hospital.

13.  Kemudian, Iraq deserang oleh tentera Amerika dan tentera British dan Saddam Hussein digulingkan dan digantung. Tanpa Kerajaan yang kuat, Sunni dan Syiah mula bertelagah dan bertindak kejam sesama sendiri. Semasa pemerintahan Saddam, mereka hidup dalam aman damai.

14.  Kemudian, pihak Barat memaksa Arab menggulingkan Kerajaan autokratik di banyak negara Arab. Akibatnya, berlaku kacau-bilau, anarki dan perang saudara.

15.  Di Syria, berlaku pemberontakan. Perang saudara telah memusnahkan seluruh negara. Seramai empat juta rakyat Syria telah meninggalkan negara mereka. Keadaan mereka amat menyedihkan. Keadaan yang sama sedang berlaku di Yaman. 

16.  Seluruh dunia Arab berada dalam keadaan huru-hara kerana orang Arab bertelagah sesama sendiri. Kumpulan pemberontak Syria dilatih, dilengkapi dan diberi bantuan kewangan oleh kuasa besar luar  untuk menentang Kerajaan Bashar Assad. Kerajaan bertindak balas.

17.  Ada pemberontak menggunakan senjata yang dibekalkan oleh Amerika untuk menentang pembentukan Islamic State. Untuk diketahui dan ditakuti, mereka menggunakan kekejaman yang tidak pernah didengar. Mereka menyembelih leher tahanan yang tidak bersalah dengan menggunakan pisau pendek dan menembak mati ramai tahanan termasuk remaja lelaki. Mereka membakar hidup-hidup beberapa tahanan mereka. Kini, mereka telah mengembangkan aktiviti mereka ke Eropah, menembak orang yang tidak bersalah.

18.  Walaupun operasi ketenteraaan ditambah bagi menentang kumpulan ini memang logik dan mungkin efektif namun perbuatan keganasan dan membunuh orang yang tidak bersalah tidak akan berakhir. Kematian ketua mereka atau pembunuh mereka akan digantikan dengan pelatih baharu dengan kemungkinan bersifat lebih kejam.

19.  Hanya satu cara untuk menangani keganasan ini adalah menyelesaikan sebab utama antaranya adalah sokongan tidak berbelah bagi kepada Israel oleh Amerika dan negara Eropah. Ini harus dihentikan.

20.  Pembentukan negara Israel ialah fait accompli yang harus diterima termasuk orang Arab. Mereka mempercaya perjanjian Stockholm tetapi penentangan Israel masih diteruskan. Mereka membunuh Yitzhak Rabin bagi memastikan keamanan tidak tercapai.

21.  Memang melampau dan bersifat jenayah membunuh kanak-kanak yang membaling batu, menangkap mereka dan memenjarakan mereka selama bertahun lamanya.

22.  Mewujudkan penempatan di atas tanah milik Palestin dan mengusir rakyat Palestin dari tanah mereka, membuat jalan raya di atas tanah milik Palestin dan rakyat Palestin dihalang menggunakannya, halangan jalan raya diadakan untuk mengganggu perjalanan rakyat Palestin di Palestin, melambatkan ketibaan wanita hamil ke hospital sehingga mereka melahirkan anak di panghalang jalan raya, membina dinding untuk memisahkan perkampungan, membunuh ribuan pelarian Palestin di kem pelarian, memecah masuk ke dalam hospital untuk mengheret rakyat Palestin yang tidak sihat untuk pelaksanaan hukuman mati, menghalang bantuan makanan, ubat-ubatan dan bahan binaan untuk tiba kepada rakyat Palestin, menangkap ribuan rakyat Palestin dan menahan mereka tanpa bicara bertahun lamanya, menggunakan mereka sebagai tebusan untuk ditukar dengan rakyat Israel yang berjaya ditangkap, memusnahkan bandar, kampung dan Semenanjung Gaza dengan roket, bom, senjata berat, kereta kebal dan traktor, seringkali memusnahkan rumah ketika penghuni rumah masih berada di dalam rumah dan macam-macam lagi kekejaman yang masih dilakukan oleh Israel.

23.  Semua perkara ini adalah salah, berlawanan dengan undang-undang negara dan undang-undang dunia, bertentangan dengan perlakuan manusia, tidak berperkemanusiaan dan tidak bermoral. Akan tetapi, orang Eropah yang menyatakan bahawa mereke percaya peraturan undang-undang, percaya kepada hak asasi manusia, percaya kepada keadilan tidak mengutuk Isreal dan tidak menghentikan mereka. Malah, mereka seolah-olah menyokong segala perbuatan salah Israel.

24.  Dunia tidak peduli kesengsaraan rakyat Palestin seolah-olah rakyat Palestin bukan manusia.

25.  Penderitaan yang ditanggung oleh rakyat Palestin, ketidak adilan terhadap mereka, perasaan malu turut dirasa oleh orang Arab dan orang Islam. Marah dan kecewa, dimalukan, tidak dapat bertindak balas secara konversional, dipandang rendah kerana kepercayaan terhadap agama Islam, orang Arab dan orang Islam terpaksa bertindak balas sekerap mungkin.

26.  Maka, perbuatan yang dikatakan ganas meningkat. Semakin mereka gagal semakin bertambah kekejaman mereka. Apabila tiada negara Islam mula bertindak, mereka cuba menubuhkan negara sendiri. Tidak dapat melancarkan perang konvensional, mereka melakukan apa yang digambarkan sebagai perbuatan ganas.

27.  Dan, perbuatan ganas ini akan berterusan dan meningkat sehingga satu usaha konkrit diambil untuk menangani penderitaan, malu dan ketidak adilan yang ditanggung oleh rakyat Palestin, orang Arab dan orang Islam oleh Israel disokong oleh Eropah dan Amerika.

28.  Saya tidak bersimpati terhadap IS dan amat benci terhadap keganasan yang dilakukan oleh mereka. Apa yang dilakukan oleh mereka bertentangan dengan ajaran Islam dan perilaku manusia.

29.  Keganasan merupakan punca penderitaan rakyat biasa. Mereka tidak tahu bilakah mereka akan menjadi mangsa keganasan. Kita menerima idea untuk menghentikan perbuatan ganas. Akan tetapi, dengan hanya menggunakan ketenteraan tidak dapat mengalahkan pengganas. Hanya dengan menyelesaikan masalah utama dapat mengalahkan keganasan.

30.  Punca keganasan telah diketahui dan disenaraikan di atas. Sikap enggan berkompromi oleh Israel harus dihentikan dan penempataan dan rampasan tanah rakyat Palestin harus dikembalikan. Apabila semua ini dilakukan, barulah kekecewaan dan kemarahan dalam kalangan orang Islan dan perlakuan akan keganasan akan berkurang. Kegagalan mengaku sebab utama hanya akan mendorong kesinambungan dan peningkatan perbuatan ganas.

THE UMNO PRESIDENT SPEECH

1.   The UMNO President speech at the UMNO General assembly 2015 is really disappointing. It's concentrated and limited to self-defence.

2.   The President claims that he is Gentleman, kind, brave, not coward and won't resign.

3.   Party's struggle and his leadership wasn't mentioned. Problems like 1MDB and RM2.6 billion in his account in Arab Malaysian Bank were not explained. Delegates would like to know about this so that they could explain it to members and people.

4.   No comment about country economy is getting worse, Ringgit value is depreciating and its implications to cost of living and import cost and there isn't any proposal about how to overcome these problems. Also, didn't touch about problems arose due to GST. Only explained about how the government is saved by this heavy tax charged on the people.

5.   No comment about education policy and the use of messy intermediate language.

6.   The points raised and stressed are Deputy President, Vice President and members are assisting President.

7.   The assistance mentioned in constitution is Deputy President and Vice President roles are regarded as support to President. Actually, assistance means assistance. In English, it means 

'assist" or "help". "Assistance" and "help" means giving opinion or advise about policies and actions proposed by the President. If the President is weak or unwell, then the Deputy President and Vice President will help. If the President is wrong, then the members have to correct him.

8.   But, the President only interprets assistance as support. That's what was mentioned in the speech "loyalty to leadership" is like come when called, go when asked to leave - The nobility principle of loyalty". That's all the President needs.

9.  Members at all level don't have to think, don't have to give any contributions but come when asked to come, leave when ask to go. When the President tells you to destroy the party, just destroy. Don't question, don't criticize and don't argue. This is party President policy and wish.

10.  If disobey to President's order or highlight his mistake, then action will be taken to suspend or expelled from party.
11.  There will be threat that police will be called in to question and charged.

12.  I was not only questioned by the police but also banned, worse than the opposition party leader.

13.  All doors were closed until I can't meet and talk to UMNO members or people. Hotels were issued warning that will lose business if I were allowed to speak at their halls.

14.  Deputy President is not allowed to officiate UMNO wings meeting according to party traditional. Deputy President was expelled from Deputy Prime Minister post. So is Shafie Afdal, the Vice President wasn't allowed to speak after being sacked from minister post.

15. Is it the attitude of kind Gentleman?. It's more to bossy attitude who tie enemy's hand so that he can be beaten without resistance. Previously, it's normal to challenge President and the challenger are free to talk anywhere. But now anymore. 

16.  Now, Zahid as Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister will try to get me questioned again by the police because of my speeches and writings in my blog. Under what law I'll be question. In a democratic country, it is not wrong to advise a Party President or a Prime Minister to resign. Why was I single out whereas thousands asked Najib to resign (banner brought by audience to Kedah VS Selangor match asking Najib to step down). No one is above the law in the principle of justice.


17.  Due to restriction, UMNO delegates in UMNO General Assembly are unable to ask about 1MDB and money in Najib's account that were said belongs to UMNO. The 2.6 billion Ringgit in Arab Malaysian Bank has been transferred to Singapore. UMNO is entitled for the report regarding this money . Previously, donation is given to UMNO President and deposited in UMNO fund under UMNO trustees care. The fund will be passed to new UMNO President during leadership change as UMNO money and not as President money. Why wasn't UMNO informed and the 2.6 billion Ringgit wasn't given to UMNO when Najib claimed that the money is belong to UMNO and not to him. Keeping the money is s crime.

18.  Furthermore, provide proof about income tax payment when the money was in Najib's personal account. This is also part of the law. Arab Malaysian Bank was fined 50 million Ringgit for unknown reason but as of now, Najib as the owner of the money wasn't fined at all. Which part is said that Prime Minister is above the law.

19.  The UMNO President speech in UMNO General Assembly is disappointing.

20.  Some quarters didn't even understand at all about the issue plaguing the party. They thought that it's relationship problem between the President and Deputy President. Therefore, with a handshake, all the problems will be resolved.

21.  This is not about relationship or friendship problem. This is about the President's wrongdoing that could cause the party to lose in election.

22.  Party have to choose whether the President explains the whereabout of the missing money and return it to UMNO or government or resign.

23.  But the President choose to stop the investigation about missing Government billions Ringgit. Replacing the investigation officers with unreliable will not erase people's doubt. By saying that the investigation is on going and it could be sub-judice and couldn't be discuss will not be accepted by the people. The case is not in court and discussing about it won't be sub-judice. Therefore, it's not against the law if the President explains about 2.6 billion and 1MDB. Not explaining them means there is a basis for the accusations. Again, the party will get the impact in GE14.

24.  The President claimed that 'he is willing to lead the holy fight for the Malays and Bumiputera' is unacceptable because Najib is the one abolish Ne Economy Policy and pressured Malays contractors until they becomes bankrupt. Scholarship for Malays were reduced.

25.  All these disappointed Malays and UMNO members ant they cheered when Najib was asked to resign.

26.  If Najib resign, it'll be well received. Only then, he is a kind Gentleman.

NAJIB'S BRIEFING

1.   Najib claimed that the reason I'm not supporting him is because I didn't get what I want.

2.   I don't have to ask for anything for myself. When I resigned I declined Government's offer of free land in Putrajaya as offered to the ex-Prime Minister. I requested to buy a piece of land in Putrajaya and I paid one million for it . The money is from my saving of 29 years in Government. Not from loan.

3.   I've returned to the Government all the gifts I got when I was in Government. It can be viewed at Langkawi Gallery and PM former resident in Jalan Terengganu, off Jalan Damansara.

4.   What I requested from Najib is for the country and for the people. My request was rejected and I still supported him in GE13. Although I said that Najib have to resign if his performance in GE13 is worse than Abdullah's in GE12, I still supported him even though his performance is worse than Abdullah's in GE12.

5.   Only when his secret loan and the loss incurred by 1MDB was exposed I withdrew my support to Najib.

6.   If the reason is because of crooked bridge wasn't built, I'd have withdrawn my support long time ago. If the reason is because the dual electric track wasn't built from Johor Bahru to Padang Besar, I'd have withdrawn my support to Najib long time ago. Not because my request for the nation wasn't fulfilled, I withdrew my support to Najib.

7.   Najib used to come and see me and ask me what I want. I thought it was a sincere request and I mentioned a few projects for country development. Then I realised that it's a way to bribe me not to raise the 1MDB issue.

8.   But the loss incurred is huge. Entertaining my request is not a reason to make me close my eyes about the missing billions, Government billions. Therefore, I continued raising 1MDB issue and suddenly there were 2.6 billion Ringgit in Najib's personal account.

9.   Never been a Prime Minister in Malaysia history owns this much of money. Prime Minister of Malaysia shouldn't own 2.6 billion Ringgit.

10.   What is clear is without this much of money, BN and UMNO won much better than Najib in GE13. Money can't give victory. Providing service and sincerity give victory to party.

11.  By saying that the money is donation from those who wished to stay anonymous. They are unwilling to give to UMNO but they are willing to give to 'leader' and they are only willing to give to Najib as leader to be kept by him in his personal account. It's nonsense unless there is no intention to give explaination about the source of money and its expenditure.

12.  By claiming that Bank Negara knows. What is the proof that Bank Negara knows. Why did the AG rejected Bank Negara's report. Why did the AG didn't trust Bank Negara whereas we are required to trust Bank Negara when mentioned by Najib, but not by Bank Negara.

13.   Is it more convincing with Najib saying that Bank Negara knows that Bank Negara report itself. Money amounting to 50 million and above need to get approval from Bank Negara. Just show the Bank Negara's approval about 2.6 billion Ringgit and Najib will be believe.

14.   Attempts to smear my name by saying that I, too, caused Government to lost money due to unprofitable actions and investments. Najib admitted that in business there is profit and loss. The important thing is all is written in a transparent and open account. And,  it's being done by responsible Government officers. I wasn't involved in management especially in capital management. My job ends with approving investments. I'm not the manager or the executive adviser.

15.  But, Najib established 1MDB sponsored by Government's one million. Najib also became the Adviser to 1MDB.

16.  1MDB's loan is RM42 billion Ringgit, that is, 42,000 more than its capital. The loan is made with a very high interest rate and 10% commission to Goldman Sachs.

17.  The money was used to buy old power station that nearing its expiring date with higher than market price. Their RM18 billion loan is taken over accumulating to RM50 billion loan.

18.  All power stations incorporated to become Edra. But, the return money is so low, unable to pay its interest and finally sold. The company unable to get listed because of account couldn't be verified by auditor. It have to be sold to China owned company because TNB is unable to pay the price that could settle the RM18 billion loan.

19.  Balance of the loan is used to buy Government land at a very low price, RM60 psf whereas the land close to it was sold at RM7,000 psf. At what price the airport land was purchased wasn't mentioned.

20.  The land occupied by squatters in Penang was bought with a very high price. Difficult to develop.

21.  There were attempts to sell land in Jalan Tun Razak that was bought with RM60 psf from Government to Tabung Haji with RM3,000 psf (50 times more). Is it wise for Government to lose RM2,940 psf. Is this 1MDB's strategic business?

22.  Did I ever make anything like this? Prove it. Don't accuse.

23.  It's said that the economy is not in bad shape.

24.  Reality is, Ringgit value and share prices are plunging badly. Cost of living is increasing with GST, petrol subsidy reduced, toll and fares increased etc.

25.  Increase in income but reduced purchasing power because the value in Ringgit in decreased. Unemployment is increasing including university graduates. Businesses and industries are facing unsolved problems.

26.  Did I spoil country image?

27.  World newspaper have reported about Jho Low and his friendship with Najib, his lifestyle and purchasing luxury houses, sponsoring Wolf of Wall Street film with Najib's stepson earlier than I mentioned about 1MDB. All these spoiled country image. It become worse with report about 1MDB's investment, then RM2.6 billion found in Najib's personal account.

28.  If there is anyone who spoiling country image, it is Dato Sri Najib himself. Our country image was good before.

29.  If all these accusations about Najib is slander, then Najib should prove otherwise. Najib should sue all these newspapers. Until now, no action is taken other than scaring those who speak up or made police report by interrogated by police, detained and bought to court. Never been before where those who reported crime to police was accused of sabotaging democracy or topple Government. Also, the lawyer who complained about this is also questioned by the police and detained.

30.  Rural folks may don't care. Maybe because newpaper wasn't allowed to report. But, just because they don't care, adultery and crimes cannot be legal.
