WHY THE OPPOSITION & DISSENTING UMNO MP'S MUST VOTE DOWN THE SEMBURIT GOVERNMENT'S RECORD 2021 RM325 BILLION BUDGET!

by e.s.shankar







Refer: Estimated Federal Expenditure 2021

Firstly, the budget clearly appears to be a non-inclusive one. RM14 BILLION or 98% of specific allocations go to Bumiputras and ONLY 2%, to others. It is therefore, a political budget aimed at securing support for a "Muafakat/Consensus" govt, i.e. a purely Malay/Muslim majority govt comprising Bersatu, PAS, UMNO and some from Sarawak. "Others" comprising 40% of the population, will be reduced to 2nd class citizens with meaningless minimal or no representation at all, at both State and Federal govt levels.

Secondly, the are billions of ringgit under development and other expenditure budgets without any details or explanations. The most glaring of these are:
1. RM13.6 BILLION "Miscellaneous Capital Injections' under the Treasury budget.
2. RM2 BILLION under the Prime Minister's Office Development Budget.
3.RM17BILLION under Covid-19 Budget. RM17 BILLION with no details???!!!###@@@
4. 7% increase in PMO salaries while most other salaries have been cut..
Are all MPs expected to blindly approve this racist non-inclusive budget?
Unelected Finance Minister Zafrul (who openly campaigned for Najib in 2018), PM Muyiddin, Azmin Ali and Hamzah Zainudin are also misleading the people by threatening us that civil service salaries and essential expenses cannot be paid if the budget is voted down. But, there is enough money under emergency financial provisions to pay for all essential services up to June 2021. Even Bangladesh, whom many predicted will fail 40 years ago, is still surviving and actually showing some growth. So, Malaysia will not collapse economically unless we support this backdoor govt.
The truth is, the Semburits fear that the budget defeat will mean the end of their backdoor unelected govt. That is the real reason for all the spindoctoring and lies. Greed for money and power is at the root of all this evil politicking.
Accordingly, we must use this golden opportunity to throw out an unelected govt that is plotting to divided this country into "them" and 'us".
Donald Trump tried these racist White Supremacist (Ketuanist) and bigoted right wing Christians strategy in the USA. He failed miserably, voted out in 4 years!
We must ensure the same happens here, quickly, BY YESTERDAY!!

A BIGOT WITHOUT PRINCIPLES. EX-MALAYSIA PM MAHATHIR CONDEMNED BY FORMER AMBASSADOR TO FRANCE. SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

by e.s.shankar



My and Siti Kassim's Tweets to Mahathir yesterday. We must ALL speak up against anyone who condones and advocates violence and killing. We must especially condemn a sour and bigoted so-called "leader" who has lived way past his useful shelf life and who lashes out blindly and wildly, for an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth policy. As a Malaysian, I am ashamed that we have such an immature and disgusting citizen!

"This is the most disgraceful and pathetic tirade by a so-called elderly leader who has lost his senses. Instead of finding ways to heal wounds and promote international peace, you are talking up an eye for an eye philosophy."
"I am sorry to say, you are sick, sir. Being an apologist to murder and violence in the name of religion. This ladies & gentlemen is why we can no longer rely on politicians to be our saviour. We need to save ourselves. Support Gerak Independent!" @chedetofficial https://t.co/r3eFEqLlkv
"Some say read @chedetofficial blog before making judgment. I have and I still condemn any kind of statement that condone violence and killing in the name of any faith. Now do you understand why there's Islamophobia? Its reprehensible. He doesn't speak for me as a Malaysian.

SAY NO TO CO-OPERATION/SUPPORT FOR BUDGET 2021! NO TO UNELECTED PM’S AND GOVT! NO TO CORONA DICTATORSHIP! NO TO SLAVERY!

by e.s. shankar


In late February this year, Mahathir, without consulting Pakatan Harapan (PH) party leaders, shockingly tendered his resignation as PM to the King who then asked Mahathir to form a Unity Govt. He refused. Mahathir had lied and lied and lied on his election promise to hand over power to Anwar Ibrahim. While Mahathir was napping, Muhyiddin, Azmin Ali and Hamzah Zainudin from PH managed to convince the King that they had the numbers. Muhyiddin was sworn in as PM and together with support from UMNO, PAS and GPS (Sarawak), formed an unelected govt under Perikatan Nasional (PN). Mahathir, who had plotted with key PN founders to particularly remove DAP from govt to form an exclusive Malay-Muslim Party (Muafakat), was unceremoniously dumped by his co-conspirators!
So, Mahathir was driven by a pathological hatred of Anwar and a bigoted, racist agenda against DAP. Muhyiddin, Azmin and Hamzah were also driven by a Malay-Islamic agenda and out the window went any pretext of a multi-racial inclusive Malaysia. Since then, PN, packed with incompetent Ministers, has lurched from one crisis to another. Many suspected that they no longer had 113 seats to form a govt.
In late September, Anwar staked his claim to form a new govt, announcing that he had between 120-129 MP’s in his camp, including (secret) support from UMNO. However, UMNO soon backtracked on this and announced continued co-operation with PN. It appears that Anwar’s gambit has failed. But many in UMNO were unhappy that Muhyiddin’s minority party, Bersatu (PPBM), had seized key Cabinet posts and lucrative well-paying sinecure jobs in GLC’s, grossly out of proportion to the number of Parliamentary seats it had.
Then, last Friday, PM Muhyiddin announced that PN would be seeking to impose a national EMERGENCY, purportedly to help battle Covid19 more effectively. The majority of the PEOPLE saw this as a clear sign that PN was attempting to impose undemocratic authoritarian dictatorship rule as it feared losing a vote of no confidence or the defeat of its 2021 Budget in Parliament (from 2-6 November). This attempted October Putsch (kind of coup) was nipped in the bud as the Agong (King) and the Rulers firmly rejected it on Sunday.
In any civilized country where principles, ethics, morals, honour, integrity, dignity and self-respect matter, the Prime Minister and his Cabinet would have tendered their resignation Sunday night. In Japan or Korea, they would have committed mass seppuku (hara kiri) or suicide.
In Malaysia, they and many brainless idiots and bleeding heart liberals are now talking about a pact between these would-be dictators for a ‘Confidence and Supply Agreement’ with the Opposition, so that the 2021 Budget can be passed. This is a red herring. Their real intention is to keep the failed would-be dictators in power until 2023. Their aim is to slowly enslave us, suspend Parliament and rob us permanently of our Constitutional right to vote and choose our own govt.
Firstly, all money for govt expenditure, including payment of civil service salaries and pensions up to 31 December 2020, was approved in 2019. Secondly, an additional RM11.97 BILLION was approved by Parliament in August this year.
Thirdly, highly emotional arguments are being used to scare the people into supporting the dictators. Fears are being spread that Covid19 will kill all our children and wipe us out if the Budget is not passed. But, between 2010-2017 Najib spent RM97 billion in excess of the annual approved Budget. These were approved by Parliament in succeeding years.
So, neither the civil service, govt nor the fight against Covid19 will be paralysed if the 2021 Budget fails to get Parliamentary approval. There are clearly ways and means of providing for ALL additional emergency funding to battle Covid19 EVEN IF THE 2021 BUDGET IS NOT PASSED! Also, as Muhyiddin showed in March, it only takes a few days for a new govt to be formed and get running effectively.
Ultimately, we must get rid of an unelected govt corrupted absolutely by lust for power, as soon as any opportunity presents itself. We must NEVER accommodate or break bread and wine and dine and party with the DEVIL. We must strike while the iron is hot. That moment is NOW and the event is Budget 2021.
Only fools and those with evil and suspect agenda will support a regime that is Ketuanist, excludes more than 50% of the population from representation in govt and GLC's and hides behind Covid19 to take us back to the Dark Ages!
So, all those who agree must immediately petition their MPs and Aduns on their social media platforms - Facebook, Youtube, Messenger WeChat, Tik Tok, Whatsapp, Instagram, Telegram, Snap Chat etc - and say:
NO CO-OPERATION/SUPPORT FOR BUDGET 2021! NO TO UNELECTED PM’S AND GOVT! NO TO CORONA DICTATORSHIP! NO TO SLAVERY!

SEMBURIT GOVERNMENT DOOMED TO FALL IN A MATTER OF DAYS?

by e.s. shankar




Coupled with UMNO head honcho Zahid Hamidi doing nothing when Anwar said he had UMNO members backing him, MIC pulling out of PN, Sec Gen Ahmad Maslan (3.8 GPA/Harga barang boleh turun kerana GST) and Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin saying UMNO might pull out of PN and Ku Li rising from the grave, the writing is surely on the wall! CLICK HERE. #NotMyPM is doomed to be the shortest serving PM in our history and the Semburits, history!

News has also just emerged that Tengku Razaleigh (Ku Li) submitted a Vote of No Confidence motion against the sitting govt to the Speaker of Parliament, Datuk Azahar Harun.


Folks, get ready for yet another change of govt in a matter of days.

What type of govt? A compromise, weak one.

A little bird tells me that there will be a coalition of PKR, DAP, Amanah, UMNO, MIC, GPS (Sarawak) and Warisan (Sabah). Anwar will be PM, Ku Li, Finance Minister. The appointments of 2 Deputy Prime Ministers, one each from Sabah and Sarawak, will be part of the deal.

The real battle will be at the 2023 General Election. The game of thrones is on!

WHY HAS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ALLOWED UMNO-CONNECTED & NAJIB'S LAWYER 32 MONTHS GRACE TO APPEAR IN COURT, IN MAY 2021, TO ANSWER RM9.5 MILLION MONEYLAUNDERING (AMLA) CHARGES AND FAILURE TO DECLARE THIS SUM TO THE INCOME TAX DEPARTMENT?

 by e.s. shankar















Lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah pleaded not guilty in SEPTEMBER 2018 to 2 charges of unlawfully receiving RM9.5 MILLION in SEPTEMBER 2013 and FEBRUARY 2014 from ex-Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.
Reports published by Sarawak Report allege that this money was part of amounts missing from the books of 1MDB and/or SRC, both 100% Ministry of Finance owned companies. Najib was then also the Finance Minister.
First, Shafee claimed that it was "nonsense" that he had been paid from 1MDB/SRC's missing funds. Then, he explained that the RM9.5 million was payment to him for legal services rendered over several years to UMNO/BN and that he had utilised it to help out a friend who needed a new house. He did not clarify why UMNO/BN's legal expenses had to be paid by Najib from his personal bank account. CLICK HERE.
It's bad enough that Najib, pending his appeal, has been allowed to walk about freely while undermining Pakatan Harapan despite being convicted in July 2020 for corruption and sentenced to 72 years jail plus a fine of RM210 MILLION.
Now, Shafee has being given 32 months grace before he finally appears in court???!!!###@@@*** Is this normal or is some kind of double standard being applied? WTF is going on?
The Attorney General Idris Harun, Chief Justice, #NotMyPM and Deputy Law Minister Takiyuddin (from PAS) must all be held accountable for this fiasco. Where is justice being seen to be done? Is this simply not appallingly and scandously outrageous?
As the saying goes, Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied! CLICK HERE.

NAJIB'S SRC APPEAL STARTS FEBRUARY 2021???111@@@***Wtf! ANOTHER 5 MONTHS OF FREEDOM? WHY IS HE NOT IN BAMBOO RIVER RESORT ALREADY?

 by e.s. shankar












In July 2020, ex-Prime Minister Najib was found guilty of corruption, sentenced to 72 years prison and fined a whopping RM210 MILLION. More than RM1 BILLION had flowed through his personal bank accounts as well as RM42 million (of RM4 BILLION) that SRC (100% owned by the Ministry of Finance headed by Najib as Finance Minister) had borrowed from government pension fund, KWAP.
When found guilty, Najib expressed no remorse and maintained his pathetic claim that, although he spent a lot of the money on personal expenses for himself, his wife Rosmah and family members, he did not know the money was in his bank account or benefit from it. He also said that he did not personally benefit from hundreds of millions of ringgit he "donated" to UMNO and BN political parties, although it helped him get re-elected as prime minister in 2013.
Yet, Najib is not in jail. He's been free to travel up and down the country, even campaign for PN in the Sabah elections last week and undermine the Opposition.
Have you not read of hundreds, if not thousand of cases, where those convicted even of minor crimes, are forced to go to jail, especially if they can't pay the fine, pending appeal?
So, why is Najib still free? Why has the judiciary system been so kind and accommodating and lenient with him? Are you not burning with rage? CLICK HERE.
So, please don't just read this article and fume in silence. Call, write, email, telegram, instagram and whatsapp your MPs, Aduns, Ministers, especially the Deputy Law Minister Takiyuddin (PAS) and the #NotMyPrime Minister. Let's put serious pressure on them.
Please share your rage and this post!

SABAH ELECTION RESULT. WHO SHALL BE APPOINTED THE CHIEF MINISTER AND FORM THE NEW GOVERNMENT?

by e.s. shankar

The PEOPLE of Sabah have spoken and we must accept the result. Officially, Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) won the elections with 38 seats as follows. CLICK HERE.
Perikatan Nasional (PN) - 17
BN (Barisan Nasional) - 14
Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) - 7
The other winners were:
Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) - 29
Parti Keadilan Rakyar (PKR) - 2
Parti Pertubuhan Kinabalu Progresif Bersatu (UPKO) - 1
Independents - 3
Total seats: 73
Under Sabah's Constitution:
"The Yang DiPertua Negeri (YDPN) shall appoint as Chief Minister a member of the Legislative Assembly who in his judgement is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Assembly..."
However, GRS is only a coalition and not not a registered political party.
So, the YDPN may well appoint as Chief Minister, Shafie Apdal, since his Warisan is the registered political party which won the most seats (29), and ask him to form the government with others, if he can.
For that, Shafie requires a minimum 37 seats (8 more). Much therefore depends on whether Shafee can persuade PBS (7 seats), PKR (2 seats), UPKO (1 seat) and the 3 Independents to join Warisan. That would give him 42 seats and a fairly comfortable majority of 11 seats over the remaining coalition members of GRS.
So, it's neither quite over for Shafie Apdal and Warisan nor timely for the Semburit (backdoor) #NotMyGovt and #NotMyPM Muhyiddin to pop the (non-alcoholic) champagne bottle and celebrate just yet. It's SHOWTIME and we all have the front seats.

As Najib said; "There are endless possibilities"!!!

LIM GUAN ENG, DAP & EX-PH GOVT VINDICATED 100% ON ALLEGED RM6.61 BILLION NO OPEN TENDER DIRECT NEGO CONTRACTS. HALF-TRUTHS, INNUENDOS & PLAIN LIES BY SEMBURIT @NOTMYGOVT EXPOSED! NEW FINANCE MINISTER ZAFRUL SHOOTS HIMSELF IN THE FOOT!

by e.s. shankar

All it takes is a close look at the numbers to expose the shameful, deceitful attempt by the Semburit #NotMyGovt to mislead Parliament and the Rakyat (citizens) that ex-Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng, DAP & the PH govt were corrupt. All these smokescreens and red herrings are being thrown around to distract attention from the FACT that ex-UMNO/BN PM Najib Razak was convicted, fined RM210 MILLION and sentenced to 72 years in jail in the RM42 million SRC corruption/abuse of power case and ex-DMP Zahid Hamidi faces 47 charges for AMLA, corruption, abuse of power etc., not to mention a slew of UMNO politicians facing similar court cases.


Here are what close scrutiny of the figures clearly PROVE:


1. RM4.5 BILLION or 68% (nearly 2/3) of the RM6.61 billion relates to a double railway electrification contract awarded by the ex-UMNO/BN govt to Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT, a GLC) on the last day of the BN govt in March 2018. Subsequently the PH govt managed to reduce the contract by RM800 MILLION!!!


2. RM900 MILLION (nearly 14%) relates to RMAF aircraft maintenance defence and related contracts which are continuations of BN contracts which CANNOT be secured by OPEN TENDER due to urgency AND limited expertise.


3. A contract for RM271 MILLION was awarded to Datasonic S/B linked to Zahid Hamidi's corruption trial.


4. Only an idiot would include in this list RM30 million paid for World Cup Football tv transmission, as the rights were held by 1 company only, AND the cost was 100% subsidized by Maxis & Air Asia!!!


5. In conclusion almost 99.77% of RM6.61 BILLION represents contracts signed under UMNO/BN ex-govt of thieves, MNC expert contractors or under a genuine certificate of emergency involving national security.


Corruption by ex-PH govt? LIES, LIES and more LIES by Semburit #NotMyGovt under #NotMyPM Muhyiddin.


The Rakyat must vote them out the first chance we get!

LIM GUAN ENG NEVER ASKED FOR A BRIBE OR RECEIVED 1 CENT OF BRIBES! NEVER!

by e.s.shankar



With regard to the RM6.3 billion Penang Tunnel contract, alleged corruption case/charges and based on MACC documents leaked and published at RPK's website, it would appear that:

1. Lim Guan Eng (LGE) NEVER asked for any bribe. NEVER!

2. Accuser Zarul Zulkifli, MD of Zenith Construction, NEVER gave any corrupt money directly to LGE. NEVER!

ALL we have are Zarul's words that the alleged payments were in cash for which he neither had witnesses nor receipts. He is also on public record of having said in 2019 that there was no corruption and that MACC had cleared him. Refer https://bit.ly/30ZiJCo

So, it would appear that there is absolutely no prima facie case against LGE.

Zarul also says he gave bribes to ex-BN Ministers or their representatives as follows:

1. Nazri Aziz
2. Ismail Sabri
3. Nur Jazlan
4. Rahman Dahlan

Why is it that LGE has been charged with SOLICITING a bribe but not BN Ministers or Zarul for allegedly bribing politicians?

All we seem to have are mere allegations with not a shred of visible or tangible proof.

Is this a case of selective prosecution and LGE, a victim of a political witch hunt, as claimed by some DAP and other politicians, including Mahathir?

WHAT DOES IT TELL YOU ABOUT NAJIB'S CHARACTER?

by e.s. shankar


What are the most important things that have emerged about the character of Najib Tun Razak - ex-Prime Minister, Finance Minister and 1MDB founder and Chief Advisor/Sole Authority - vis-a-vis his 28th July 2020 conviction on all 7 charges in the SRC RM42 million Corruption (abuse of power), Criminal Breach of Trust (CBT) and Money-laundering (MLA) case?


Imho, they are:


1. He is still in a state of denial despite the fact that he was told subsequently that the money was transferred from SRC to his personal bank a/c.


2. He has not expressed any remorse about spending the RM42 million, much of it for political gain and also personal and family expenses.


3. He has not once mentioned making repayment of a single cent of the RM42 million. That money has disappeared forever. Why should the Rakyat be stuck with the bill?


RM42 million is not peanuts by any standard, anywhere. So, the 12-year concurrent sentence and RM210 million fine seems very appropriate. He's lucky he's not already serving time at Bamboo River Resort!


There is also the larger issue of the missing RM2 BILLION so-called Saudi Royal donation (rubbished by the judge) which he claimed he returned to the donor. But the United States Department of Justice (USDoJ) states in its 2016 & 2017 Statutory Declarations that it was returned to an offshore bank a/c controlled by Jho Low!!!


How did this man ever become our Prime Minister?

17% OF PROJECTED GDP RM250 BILLION STIMULUS PACKAGE BUT CITIZENS AND BUSINESSES BEAR THE BULK OF THE COST?

by e.s. shankar


Dear Ministers of #NotMYGovt#NotMyPM @Muhyiddin
@AzminAli @tzafrul_aziz @Mustapa_Mohamed @AnnuarMusa:


Adakah ini merupakan 17% GDP Malaysia berdasarkan anggaran RM1.47 Trillion bagi 2019 yang tidak tercapai? Dan yang tidak akan dicapai pada 2020 kerana harga minyak terjunam ke US$20-30 ppb, kejatuhan harga minyak sawit dan Covid-19?

Selebihnya, pada hari ini, Bank Dunia telah megurangkan sasaran GDP Malaysia bagi 2020 ke negatif 0.1%, bermakna kemungkinan recessi. Tekan di sini - https://www.theedgemarkets.com/…/world-bank-lowers-malaysia…

Rakyat mesti diberitahu apa yang benar dan bukan yang diputar belit!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Dear Ministers

Does this represent 17% of Malaysia's GDP based on 2019 estimate of RM1.47 Trillion, which was not achieved? And which will likely not be achieved in 2020 due to oil price crashing to US$20-30 ppb, drop in palm oil price and Covid-19?


What more, the World Bank today lowered Malaysia's 2020 GDP target to NEGATIVE 0.1%, meaning recession is on the horizon! Click here - https://www.theedgemarkets.com/…/world-bank-lowers-malaysia…

The citizens must be told the truth and not be confused with loads of spindoctoring!

SOME RECOMMENDATIONS ON HOW TO SAVE MALAYSIA FROM THE MOTHER OF ALL RECESSIONS AND 5-10 MILLION BECOMING UNEMPLOYED!

by e.s. shankar

The general perception of the Rakyat seems to be that the new govt and its think tank (if there was one) did not deliberate sufficiently in depth on matters. It failed to seal all loopholes and explore all aid packages to employers and employees before announcing on 16th March 2020 its 'Restricted Movements Order' policy under the '1988 Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act'.

It's incredible that 63 years after Independence, 61 of which were under UMNO/BN rule, and despite Nipah and SARS virus deaths, Malaysia is grossly underprepared to tackle Covid19. In 2015, BN announced with great fanfare the formation of the National Disaster Management Authority (NADMA). Now we have a disaster and no idea who's really in charge. The utter lack of a continuous blitz of warnings and advice on Covid19 via the Ministry of Communications & Multimedia (MCMM), Bernama, RTM, TV, MSM and govt websites is a clear sign of ignorance and incompetency.

Regardless, there are 3 areas the Semburit govt needs to address by yesterday:

1. SAVE THE EMPLOYERS & EMPLOYEES FIRST, AVOID THE MOTHER OF ALL RECESSIONS!

Many employers, especially those in the retail sector, suddenly have NO cash (or reserves) to pay staff salaries for March or April due to shut down of business premises, shopping malls and shops. The situation will become worse if Covid19 prolongs. The govt has billions of ringgit in reserves arising from TNB's 1.6% monthly electricity surcharge on consumers and Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF), Socso and Employment Insurance Scheme (EIS) contributions.

The normal usage of these funds are restricted by law. But at this moment of a pandemic and local and global emergency, it is simply a matter of an Executive Order by #NotMyPM for govt to release RM10 Billion to start with, to subsidise private sector employees and to bear at least, say, 75% of basic salary for 3-6 months. What else is Employment Insurance for?

Otherwise, as much as 5-10 million workers could be forced to go on no-pay-leave or retrenchment permanently! This could then see the mother of all recession setting in soon, hastened by businesses being unable to pay rent and creditors.

The silence from our new Finance Minister, Minister for MissEconomics and the (un)thinking tank is deafening!

2. GET THE ARMY MOBILISED

Malaysia apparently has a standing army of 400,000 excluding reservists. Surely, they and their fleet of trucks could be deployed to distribute fruits and vegetables from Cameron Highland to major markets, hypermarkets, supermarkets etc, instead of allowing them to perish?

No doubt it is not the ideal employment of the army. But, dammit, this is a once in a 100-year emergency and will justify that action!

3. FORCE THE BANKS TO DO NATIONAL SERVICE

Bank Negara Malaysia has ordered all banks to freeze home loan repayments for 6 months (but interest will still be charged at compound rates on monthly rest). This is good but does not go far enough.

It should be extended to individuals with hire purchase loans. ALL interest should be waived for 6 months as well. The consumer has been ripped off by banks with high interest rates now for years, not to mention ATM and bank charges while paying a pittance on savings account balances. It's payback time for the banks. They can survive even with losses of a billion or two over the next 12 months.

Everyone must badger and bug the PM and MP/Aduns and the govt to act quickly to save the economy and country.

I hope the Semburit PM and (wooden IKEA) Cabinet read and implement my suggestions ASAP. If they run out of ideas, I am available 24/7 for consultancy!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Please share if you agree! Tqvm
