“No clear Line in Politics ..Theory yes!”

aacca1A senior political analyst said to audie61,”There is no clear line in politics. He also made a clarification regarding PBDS candidates who stood in 1987 and 1991. During the Ming Court 1987, PBDS was at odds with Taib Mahmud and they joined forces with PERMAS to try to oust the then Chief Minister. PBDS leaders held positions in the Federal BN Government during this period but were outside BN in the State.”

So the headline on the article which is extracted fully Masing”Get this clear, Sarawak BN does not include Teras.UPP” leaves very much to be desired. The writer should have clarified the Minister’s statement instead of agreeing fully.

A source telephoned audie61 and even said,” the name of the game is that Masing only wants to rid off all challengers so that the DCM posts is within his reach. Fair enough to harp about it,but isn’t that challenging the Chief Minister’s statement of BN plus in the present ruling government?” PBB,SUPP,PRS and SPDP are of course the BN coalition but TERAS and UPP are helmed also by BN assemblyman and their members.

Teras,UPP are not anti-BN are they now? In political theory they are but politics is never a clear line.

The final candidacy will be very much to the Chief Minister wouldn’t it be? The 3 Presidents of the party will be giving their names of their candidates and its up to CM Adenan to give the nod to all the lists submitted. CM Adenan will want winnable candidates for all those seats which BN will be contesting. Isn’t that his decision plus inputs from the BN coalition members and his strategists?

Maybe,for the record audie61 would not know yet as they are not sitting in the Chief Minister’s chair.By the way,we are not stalking the writer but only asking why is that his focus is only UPP and in particular TERAS.

The full article which has been extracted. 

The people in Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras) and United People’s Party (UPP) will find BN’s door wide open if they take the cue from PRS president Dr James Masing’s statement on Oct 5. Masing had said the current political scenario in the state would not be an issue if the people concerned were not only thinking of themselves. The current stalemate could easily be settled if those involved were serious in serving their constituents. “In the 12th general election, we had a situation in Julau. It’s PRS seat and (Datuk) Joseph Salang wanted to stand as BN candidate but he was not a member of PRS.

So was Kanowit. It’s a BN seat and (Datuk) Aaron Dagang wanted to stand as a BN candidate but I said it’s a PRS seat. “So I went to see (then Chief Minister) Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud. Sir, I have a problem. Julau and Kanowit are my party’s seats, but the guys who want to stand there are not from BN. What am I going to do? “He said: ‘It’s simple, ask them to join you’. So I talked to Joseph Salang and Aaron Dagang to join us, which they did,” Masing was quoted as saying.

He said the reason Salang and Aron agreed to his proposal for them to join PRS was because they had the voters’ interest in mind. Masing further added: “So that’s how I solved the problem. Why make it so difficult, I cannot understand it because they think of what there is for them and not for the people who vote for them.

That’s the difference.” By “they” he can only mean the people in Teras – William Mawan, Peter Nansian, Sylvester Entri, Rosey Yunus and Paulus Palu Gumbang – and those in UPP – Wong Soon Koh, Dr Jerip Susil, Ranum Mina and Dr Johnical Rayong. Mawan’s declaration of “I am always Barisan, Barisan, and Barisan, through and through” will be seen as only political rhetoric if he keeps insisting Teras is a member of BN whether or not some component members of the ruling coalition agree.

Similarly, Wong’s BN posture cannot be genuine if he thinks UPP is the sole representative of the Chinese community and brushes aside Sarawak United People’s Party’s (SUPP) presence in the ruling coalition. Mawan and Wong must not think for a while that Teras and UPP are so important to BN that the ruling coalition will not hesitate to expel Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and SUPP just to facilitate the admission of the so-called BN-friendly parties.

BN will not do that to its component members not only because that’s not how BN solves differences in the coalition but also because there are people who know too well the difficulty, or rather the impossibility, of winning in the election if they don’t stand on a BN ticket.

I think that’s what Masing was hinting at when he said anyone aspiring to be BN candidates should not just rely on the ‘dacing’ (scale) symbol to win seats, but more on their own popularity. Who in Teras will dare say they can win even without having to be on the side of the BN?

Mawan, whose election debut was as a DAP candidate, certainly can vouch that the surest way to lose is as an opposition candidate like he once was. Who in UPP, with the exception of Rayong, dare claim they don’t need to use the ‘dacing’ symbol to win in the coming state election? Rayong won the Engkilili state seat under opposition Sarawak National Party (SNAP) ticket in 2006 while Masing stood on Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS) ticket against the BN twice – in 1987 and 1991. “

The real test of winnability is the ability to win without the use of BN symbol, especially in rural areas. So non-BN candidates cannot be supported by the BN political organisations until and unless they have been admitted to BN; otherwise BN is seen as fighting against the very laws it created,” Masing had said in his Oct 5 statement.

Right at this moment, Teras and UPP are not components of BN, until and unless they have been admitted into the BN, their winnability is not only suspect but irrelevant. However, the Teras and UPP people can make their winnability relevant if they are willing to play by the BN’s rule.

And Masing has just set the tone, if BN and your voters are your prime concern, then swallow your pride and play by BN’s rule. In Sarawak, that rule is set down by Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), PRS, SUPP and SPDP. It can’t be any clearer, Teras and UPP can’t be so dumb not to understand that. –

TERAS “certainly not from Pakatan stable.?”

auuuuWhat actually is the fuss that’s being ‘spiced up” and trying to crucify William Mawan. He is still a very Senior Cabinet Minister under the Sarawak Barisan National Government. He perceived without a doubt that there was a mutiny undermining his leadership in SPDP and switched sides to TERAS on 15th May 2013 and had 11 YBs by his side. Of course politics being so fluid  a new party “UPP” was born. The rests they say is history as branches from both BN friendly parties were set up.

There are movements as well to see an end to this unhealthy saga by talks to see William Mawan back to SPDP. It all depends though on how the Barisan Nasional Senior leaders can come to a compromise. No matter how we analyse on the situation the final card will be shown come the Sarawak State Elections.

For now lets look at this article from the antdaily with an open heart and an open mind.

The Sarawak state election is due in a matter of months but the future of Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras) is still as uncertain as on the day it was born, Thus, it is not a wonder when its president William Mawan keeps telling himself he is not dreaming. 

You can’t blame him for thinking he is in a dream world. He has to keep pinching himself, poke his sides and give his cheeks some light slaps to convince himself he is wide awake and in the real world. 

Saying “Teras is a BN party as it was born inside the BN” is giving himself the assurance he is standing on firm ground, not imagining things. 

That’s because it has all been like a dream, from a nightmare not too long ago. 

And not too long ago he was a captain of a ship but because life is precious anytime, all the time in fact, he jumped overboard when he thought a mutiny was brewing. 

The Ibans liken such a jump for dear life to jumping off the longhouse in a moment of fright and desperation instead of running down the ladder. 

When life is at stake, a 20-foot ladder is a long journey down, but jump, the next second you have the feel of Mother Earth under your feet. 

So Mawan took the plunge. 

In politics what he did is seen as a frog act, so politicians who jump are called frogs. 

And like any political frog, he swam safely ashore where be built himself a new ship.

His nightmare ended, and now it has been like one unbelievable beautiful dream. 

Teras is not a member of BN yet it has been treated like one. In fact, it is being treated in more special ways than Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP), the ship he abandoned when he did that frog act.

He remains a minister and his loyal rag-tag of frog soldiers continue to hold office even though they are not BN members.

They dish out grants and projects. They get to appoint their cronies as community leaders, councillors, even GLC-linked board members. 

If all that is not enough, Mawan has just appointed his sick brother as Temenggong. 

Say what you want, frog or toad, whichever of the species you tag him as, Mawan is power. 

Appointing his brother to the highest office in the native administrative system shows the kind of power he wields.

Now he thinks it is “a matter of time, formality and technicality before other components in BN accept us”. 

But right there he is probably lapsing into a dream spell because which BN component party or parties have changed their stand from confining Teras to the opposite side of the political fence?

State BN chairman and Chief Minister Adenan Satem, has lulled Mawan and company into a surreal world for too long and for that same length of period, Teras has been on cloud nine.

The fact is Teras is still not a BN member no matter how Mawan sees it, and no matter how he tries to convince himself and his followers.

 

CM Adenan Knows his”winnable strategy”

aacca1Seriously, as “election looms” all parties and candidates within the BN Sarawak coalition will be frantically fighting for what is theirs. The only safe seat though will be the Chief Minister’s seat . Do we need to say more? You figure it out…!

This article is extracted fully from antdaily and written by Joseph Tawie.

COMMENT:

Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras) is said to be so desperate to win the support of voters and the rural folk that it has to resort to using the names of Chief Minister Adenan Satem and Prime Minister Najib Razak to convince them in its war of attrition against its bitterest enemy – Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP).

Typical of its leaders’ argument is that its president William Mawan Ikom is in the Cabinet of Chief Minister Adenan Satem. And that the party is also allowed to use BN facilities. If the chief minister is not supportive of Teras, Mawan would have been dropped as social development minister, they said.

Even Mawan himself was reported to have said that “if we are not BN then how is it that party leaders are allowed by top BN leadership (Adenan and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak) to talk about BN, use BN facilities and distribute MRP funds and announce BN development projects like other BN elected representatives? “Teras is a BN party as it was born inside BN. It will be just a matter of time, technicality and formality before other component parties in BN accept us,” he said. His party is not only a member of the Sarawak BN, but it is also a “true blood” of BN because it was born inside BN.

By using this tactic, Mawan and Teras leaders may win the hearts and minds of the simple-minded rural folk, but it can backfire on them. According to PBB sources, Adenan is not happy with Teras leaders as they have put him in a hot spot where he would be criticised by leaders from SPDP, Sarawak United People’s Party and Parti Rakyat Sarawak for being biased.

They want him to be hated by SPDP, SUPP and PRS which are members of the State BN, said the PBB sources. “This is a bad move on the part of Teras, and it should not resort to name-dropping of the chief minister to win support,” they said. True, Teras leaders cannot bluff people as the facts are obvious that they and the leaders of United People’s Party (UPP) are not invited to any BN function.

The absence of Teras and UPP elected representatives at a meeting between Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and BN elected representatives in Kuching last Saturday spoke volumes of the fact that the two parties are not members of BN despite claims by the two parties. After the meeting, Adenan said that the majority of the incumbent elected representatives from BN would be retained in the coming state election.

No mention was made with regard to the future of the five elected representatives from Teras namely William Mawan Ikom (Pakan), Peter Nansian (Tasik Biru), Sylvester Entri (Marudi), Rosy Yunus (Bekenu) and Paulus Palu Gumbang (Batu Danau), and from UPP’s Wong Soon Koh (Bawang Assan), Johnichal Rayong (Engkilili), Ranum Mina (Opar) and Jerip Susil (Bengoh).

Again at the BN Youth meeting during the weekend in Ulu Belaga, youths from Teras and UPP were not invited. What does all this show if not for the fact that they are outside BN. Meanwhile, heated debates are raging between Teras leaders and SPDP leaders whether Teras is a member of State BN or not. SPDP vice-president Rayan Narong accused Mawan of being out of touch with reality and of being arrogant for ignoring the joint stand of SPDP, SUPP and PRS.

The three BN component parties would strongly oppose the entry of Teras into the ruling coalition. “The key to BN holding on to power is unity among the component parties. Does Mawan think the ruling coalition is willing to break up this unity just for the sake of Teras?” said Rayan.

“Technically it is impossible since the BN agreement stipulates that all the component parties must agree before any party can be admitted into its fold and SPDP, SUPP and PRS have made their objections to Teras joining BN very clear,” he said.

On Mawan’s claim that Teras was born inside BN fold, Rayan said that Teras leaders including Mawan himself had resigned from a BN component party to facilitate the formation of the party. “How can Teras be born inside the BN fold when its leaders and members do not belong to any BN component party,” Rayan asked. Defending Mawan,

Teras grassroots leader Pasang Ngelambai accused Rayan of refusing to understand that the people wanted candidates who had the people’s welfare at heart. BN, he said, wanted to field winnable candidates, and Mawan is one of them. –

“Ugliness and Hatred on Line-“

Extracted fully and This is an opinion from Sarawakian Edgar Ong

If you have an account on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram you would have noticed that there are far too many postings showing people sharing news, images, videos and personal opinions about subjects verging on the edge of being censored – some due to their opinionated sense of perversion or twisted perspective or insane ideas and views.

Most of the time you find yourself bombarded with ugly, nasty and unpleasant images, news and videos. I am talking about pictures and photographs of abused infants, minors, pets and animals. I am also including those barbaric and savage images and videos of heads and limbs and other bodily parts being chopped off.

Bad news sells. That’s what is basically bringing in the eyeballs into Facebook and Twitter accounts, and some delight in seeing their posts being seen or “Liked” so many times as if they are trying to break their own personal best record!

Why indeed are people sharing so much ugliness and hatred? Is it the shock-value factor that they are after? Is it an inner sense of feeling good about themselves that they are above all this? Or is it some grotesque and twisted sense of satisfaction about showing off to others what they feel is wrong with the world at large?

Perhaps only a psychiatric observation can give us the answer.

Wouldn’t the world be a better and nicer place if we, or at least the majority of us, share good things – the joyful, the beautiful, the caring and the loving news and images that we have seen, read or viewed?

Many friends suggested that we should share more of the good things in life – how to be better parents, better companions; how to live a healthier life; how and what to do with your free time and the list is endless.

We can share about food and drinks, music and reading; travel and cooking – even share news of family and friends and how they are doing and what you’ve been up to. Surely all this is a lot better than being just being a constant voyeur and peeping Tom into other people’s nastiness, ugliness and bad tidings?

Six months ago, I started a Facebook page called “Kuching Flood Feedback” specifically for those who had wanted to share and inform others about the flood situation in and around Kuching. Within a few weeks it had taken off and grown popular and had over 500 members.  When the flood situation improved I thought of closing it down.

Many members implored me to keep the page alive as it proved to be of value and interest to them, so I renamed it Sarawak Public Feedback, and increased the forum’s coverage area to Sarawak, to also include other subjects of public interest.

Today, there are 7,694 members not just from Kuching or indeed Sarawak. The subject matter now also includes public policies and politics.

Sarawak election is hot topic on Sarawak Facebook pages
Sarawak election is hot topic on Sarawak Facebook pages

No prizes for guessing what subject is now the hottest topic on Sarawak Public Feedback. It’s Malaysian politics – with a slant towards Sarawak, of course. Members get all hot and bothered and threads extend into the hundreds when it comes to debating issues from ‘Sarawak for Sarawakians’ to ‘Najib’s scandals’ to ‘Adenan’s popularity’.

Other non-politically minded members try their best to contribute, from time to time, their posts about local history, culture, food, places to visit and so on, but these posts amount to less than 20 per cent of total postings.

Sadly, social media, instead of sharing the good things in life, has become a platform for people to sound off – and when they do that it’s usually about politics and bad news.

Hishammuddin….The Journey.

ahishammuddin

Contributors:- Angus & Natassha continues on Series 3

Born on 5 August 1961, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has all the hallmarks of a potential Prime Minister.

That he has successfully steered away from the current controversies and is safe (at least for now) from darts, arrows and missiles and has not been embroiled in ongoing raging issues shows he has truly come of age as a Malaysian politician.

His portfolios have been nothing but impressive and all have given him the edge over other contenders to take over the helm of government should there be a change of leadership.

His journey to the top (or almost at the top) has been marked by an astounding record of achievement.

Currently, he is Minister of Defence of Malaysia, a portfolio he has been holding since 16 May 2013.

Datuk Seri Hishammuddin was Minister of Home Affairs from 2009 to 2013.

For five years, he was the Minister of Education  from 2004–2009.

Prior to that position, he served as Minister of Youth and Sport (1999–2004).

As acting Minister of Transport (2013–2014), Datuk Seri Hishamuddin achieved international prominence in March 2014, as the minister responsible for investigating the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

His eloquence when contending with questions from international press, his composure when all else seemed to be falling apart, his compassion when dealing with bereaved families left a lasting imprint in the hearts of all who the brilliant manner in which he handled the challenging post-MH 370 scenario.

In terms of organizational structure, as one of the party’s three vice-presidents and former chief of the party’s youth wing from 1998 to 2009, Datuk Seri Hishamuddin is definitely a man of substance within UMNO.

Notwithstanding, he is also the son of Malaysia’s third prime minister, Hussein Onn, and the cousin of the sixth and current prime minister, Najib Razak. His mother, Suhaila Noah, was from an illustrious family and his great-grandmother (mother of Hussein Onn), was a Circassian from Turkey.

With such an impressive background in bloodline and experience, there seems to be only one spot in his record book – the kris waving incident at the 2005 UMNO convention. Through time, it appears this has not been a setback in his political career as he has come forth stronger than before.

When Mahathir made the announcement of his retirement Hishammuddin was pacifying Tun with Rafidah n others. Does this not show he is a favoured one?

angusHe even visited Taib Mahmud and when he went back to peninsular he was down with heart problems. Does this also mean that he is not destined?

Najib does not want Hishammuddin to be in front yet or else he too will be brought down.

Yet, the question remains. Why is Najib keeping Hishamuddin in the shadows?

As a dark horse, given the experience and breeding he has, Hishamuddin may just race to the
front and overtake all other contenders to the PM’s position.

We will have to wait and see.

Whither Now,Malaysia?

At9NoRDQLaGENE4VySjxrKJyUYkMl8JbYJF2funF7RgiThe seeds of disunity, disinformation, and distrust have been sown in Malaysia. In the midst of economic problems and despair, there is always hope that our nation can ride the storms that beset us. For that, Malaysia needs a firm leader with wisdom and foresight.

Two years ago, when speaking at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club in Tokyo (2013), Mahathir said UMNO would still support Najib ‘because of a lack of an alternative’. His words and actions today show a sharp 360-degree departure from that observation.

Numerous probes from various countries, including Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad that has more than $US11 billion ($15.3 billion) in debt.

The latest to join the fray is the FBI, which began investigations into money-laundering allegations related to our PM shortly after the arrest of Khairuddin Abu Hassan before his intended trip to the US to meet law enforcement officials about the 1MDB fund.

Against this backdrop, is Najib the best leader who can steer Malaysia out of troubled waters?
Malaysians are eager to cast the first stone at the sinner than to submit solutions to what is perceived as a critical problem to national stability.

Rumblings of discontent from the north to south, east to west have not been accompanied by any affirmative solution should the PM, for whatever reasons, decide to step down.

The status quo has dealt with detractors strategically and the record shows a significant number cowered in the face of pre-emptive strikes while others have had no qualms voicing their frustration.

Selective amnesia prevails as majority can only remember a ‘tainted’ 1MDB, preferring to forget that under Najib, we have had a very peaceful nation with no propagation of racist policies such as during Mahathir’s time (BTN), or cronyism.

Unlike his predecessors who did not have economics background, as an Economics graduate, Najib established and has been achieving targets for the Government Transformation Program (GTP), thanks to his foresight in engaging best economists and experts in the respective fields.

However, his enemies would never acknowledge these achievements including results in reducing crime, fighting corruption, improving student outcome, raising living standards of low-income households, improving rural basic infrastructure and improving urban public transport.

His effort to implement the GST has not been well received even though over 200 countries have implemented this tax system.
Throughout his tenure, our PM has not been racist nor has he been like Mahathir who supported Ibrahim Ali’s call to burn bibles and had said it was not an issue “as long as there were good intentions.”

Najib’s tenure as PM has not seen any untoward incidents arising from religious conflicts such as the Memali incident during Mahathir’s time. Yet, Malaysians are ready to throw rotten tomatoes at our PM, because of the spin propaganda to topple him.

It is only fair that the world awaits the verdict of local and international 1MDB probes before condemning our PM.

At the same time, it is reasonable to consider if there is any worthy successor to Najib should circumstances necessitate a change in leadership.

It is highly plausible that former DPM Tan Sri Muhyddin Yasin is the best candidate for the position because he proved his mettle by putting his party and country before his path to the top. Even though he paid a paid a heavy price for speaking up about 1MDB, his courage to speak up for his beliefs show compromise is not in his vocabulary but steadfastness in vision and loyalty to UMNO. Currently, he commands very strong support not just from Johore or UMNO but also across the board. His vast experience in public administration and excellent public relations skills are more feathers to his cap.

In such a heated ambiance where a small spark can trigger an avalanche of possibilities, having a hotheaded leader such as DPM Zahid Hamidi is risk few would favor, especially when leaders need to close ranks for the nation to move forward. His close relationship with Lim Guan Eng is another liability, which cost him many brownie points from grassroots support.

Khairy Jamaluddin’s share ratings might improve in a decade. His gungho approach and selective silence as and when situations favor him, not forgetting the baggage of his past as a fourth-floor boy, undermines his charisma and the aura of being a former PM’s son-in-law.

As the longest serving MP, Tengku Razaleigh stands far above many other contenders to premiership. His inertia to usurp power at all points of time underscores his courteous ways. He could have fought for the top position but he took the road less taken and until today, will only step into place if the position is handed to him. In terms of morals and ethics, this Prince has not been embroiled in any dispute or scandals that exploded during the tenure of Mahathir, Badawi, and Najib. Age is not in his favor and he is recovering from a recent bereavement. When duty calls, will he rise to the occasion?

The road ahead is paved with many obstacles – some seemingly insurmountable and others fragments that could fit once a great leader can seal the cracks in the path.

As for now, is Najib the best leader to steer Malaysia to 2020?
Speak up, Malaysians!

ARTICLE WRITTEN BY ANGUS ELIJAH

  • political analyst who have been with audie61 team since its inception . Went overseas to polish up his writing skills and have come back fresher and dynamic perspective and looking towards the year 2020. A contributor of National Politics and will have no qualms about writing facts rather than fiction.

  • ANGUS is infectious and stay tuned together with audie61 TEAM as we approach the Sarawak State elections and GE14.

“Orang Malaya Tag”

Aorang malayaAll Old collaboration/partnerships no matter how strong their relationship will end if disagreements and “FITNAH” {allegations) are not checked. It has taken a good (6) months when the Ides of March took effect and on 17th of September 2015 in “Soal Jawab Programme on TV3” CM Adenan became our saviour. Mr. U U afterall is now my best friend forever. Thank you for putting it right and saying its TRADITION.

audie61 was under attack from all angles and even have to say goodbye to a TEAM we built from ashes to a respectable “SEMUT SARAWAK SAYA SUKA” Team . Adolf Hitler had the SS group,mosts cyberwarriors have the SSS that is “saya shok sendiri” but we had nearly 20 of the elite snipers who went about their work without fanfare but did their work accordingly and reached the masses on the ground.

Its no point writing and postings if it doesn’t even scratch the surface of the intended netcitizens if one spams and reposts and retweets says a Minister close to Najib. 

Where are all the bloggers plus troopers hiding? All are playing it safe to say the least as Mahathir is also their former boss and Najib is the present PM but who have criticized them openly.

audi11111Truth be told cyber troopers/bloggers are a special breed says a former group editor of a leading newspaper. Seasoned Bloggers can smell a rat from a distant while todays new journalists/reporters just try to pick on the carcasses left behind. A chain command it could be but a press aide to a senior Minister fails to see the significance of the TEAM of Bloggers/Graphic designers.

What did the late Lee Kuan Yew said, “No Man is an island” and if the people in power fails to see this and still live in their comforts of their cushy chair and airconditioned rooms they soon will be ousted too. It only takes a spark to start a fire and if mosts bloggers are being sidelined the “PERCEPTION WILL TURN FOR THE WORST”

Even an Assistant Minister in CM Adenan’s cabinet agrees. He says,”in politics perception is the No.1 KILLER  to any politicians”. we have been keeping very silent of late as we have been “FITNAH” and saddened that our team was decimated by outside forces.

Some people do take advantage of Sarawakians generosity and naivety. audie61 was lured into the trap and chopped off conveniently with an ulterior motive. The big picture is starting to surface now and from what we have gathered it is no wonder, that Najib’s Prime Ministers Office is being taken for a ride with millions of dollars used not for churning “positive perceptions and press releases” but it did not filter through and paid accordingly on the work done.

A political strategist, degree holder, diploma holder and a high school graduate will be paid accordingly but did the PMO expected this backlash until PM Najib had to come out openly and criticise the bloggers. Who are facebookers, twitterers without the right strategists?;They just click without a care in the world.

WE DONT BLAME PM NAJIB FOR THIS. HIS THINK -TANK AND STRATEGISTS GOT IT ALL WRONG AND GAVE IT TO THE CRONIES WHO KNOW VERY LITTLE OF BLOGGING TO HEAD A TEAM. 

“PERCEPTION IS THE VERY ESSENCE OF WRITING AND POSTERS ARE VALUE ADDED TO THE WRITE UPS AS ONE KNOWS PICTURES PAINTS A THOUSAND WORDS’

AAAERWhen PM Najib was being attacked and pushed to the corner he was left gasping for air. The cyber team had to find newer methods to come out to safeguard the Prime Minister. The MCMC cyber division had to come out with even a forum”Nothing to Hide” which obviously backfired.

The BN supreme council was called in and we went to the extend of starting a poster where most were implicated. But where did the cyber team hide said a source? That we did not know until a movement #kekalnajib came about. But they were hard press into submission as Tun Mahathirs bloggers were light years ahead of them and knows their modus operandi. (They ate the #kekalnajib team for breakfast in a whatsapp message to audie61)

SO “ORANG MALAYA TAG “you know we meant no harm and CM Sarawak is indeed our saviour. Please Sarawakians are not backwards and naïve as you all think. We are light years ahead as we know nation building we have to sacrifice for the better good.

Najib looks at Sarawak/Sabah and he knows that infrastructure development is way behind and now he is turning to us not for survival but to ensure that Sarawak will be on par soon.

Thank you CM Adenan.

BN Plus will do “More Harm than Good” to CM



auuuuThe Rural Bastion of BN will only be secured if there are no infighting amongst BN parties and its grassroots. That is the rule of politics and it cannot be more specific than that

The younger set of dayak educated intellectuals and voters are now weighing all the options and they are slowly and surely a force not to be taken lightly.

A number of them when interviewed by audie61 said,” yea we have high respect for CM Adenan but  6% GST, 1MDB,currency exchanges, high prices of goods , plus political instability does not help Mr.UU.”

His rhetorics are well received but he needs to ensure that the TERAS & SPDP loggerheads must be solved before elections is called. 8 seats on offer and seriously, if dissatisfaction sets in it will allow the opposition to capitalise.

CM Adenan with over 30 years of experience knows the Opposition well enough but he has reservations on the voters.His warcry of “Bagi saya Peluang 5 tahun lagi” is certainly well thought of but its the infighting amongst BN members which will turn to “hollow” victory if there are major losses.

Surely, his recent meetings with Tiong King Sing have set the wheels in motion for an amicable solution. The top leaders might be hugging each other but the 2nd echelon leaders would be aggrieved if Mawan does take a step back to his former bastion of SPDP.

Politics anything is possible and we wouldnt be surprised if CM thanks Mawan and Tiong for putting differences aside for the better good of BN Sarawak.

Stay tune for more….!!!!

BN Plus “U-Turn..Home comforts of Kam Pua Politics..!!”

aeeeeeIt’s a sucker punch.

According to a TERAS member and former SPDP SC,”We remember very well at the PRS headquarters in the Press Conference that James Masing said,”a certain personality” must not be there.” Now is it done just to derail the CM Adenan’s earlier masterplan?

After some investigative works, we were informed that prior to the afternoon Press Conference on May 15th 2014 when this plan was given the go-ahead of getting the “YBS without a home together” Mawan was still indecisive. How could he betray his good friend and ‘ally” in Tiong King Sing?

Mawan was in a dilemma or was he? …Wouldn’t you be..when you are about to betray a Friend of many years..?

In reality, he could be MISLED according to sources from the ground. It could be seen clearly who initiated the rebellion as per the press conference led by the former SPDP youth secretary and the former SPDP women secretary The  leaders and some ” hardcore” members of S.C. look at this as ‘opportunity” to teach Tiong a lesson and also to be given positions and other perks.

Politics changes all the time and their days are “numbered” and they will be scrapheap soon if the next phrase of Political re-alignment comes to fruition. They will have their names in the annals of the history books if ‘someone” decides to write.

The women secretary took herself out of the equation when she smelt a rat. She has since kept a low profile which is a credit to her. SPDP members who are still with the party have not forgotten about this episode and they will gladly welcome back their former President but of course the rests have to join the queue while some will end up put in a very cold and isolated freezer.

This was the PC,” Sixteen divisional Youth chiefs, claiming to represent 5,263 members, and 10 divisional Women chiefs, claiming to represent 10,000 members, announced they have quit Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP). http://www.theborneopost.com/2014/05/19/26-youth-and-women-division-chiefs-say-quitting-spdp-to-join-teras/

Led by former SPDP Youth secretary Khairuddin Abdul Kadir and former SPDP Women secretary Olivia Chan, they announced at a press conference yesterday that they wanted to join their former party president Tan Sri William Mawan in the newly formed Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras).”

How come SPDP is still very much intact they ask..? Who was the schemer?

If the leaders had ten of thousands party members with them no one would dispute that. If they dare to take the lead they will be the first to face the wrath of the political in coming storm. Please don’t put the blame that its the Chief Minister Adenans Plan. The whispering campaign plus ‘pokok goyang”have even gone as far as “Adenan failed”

What happened in the Pullman hotel where and when the YBS met and subsequent meetings does not point to Adenan? Lets get it clear ,don’t lah if its not working blame Mr.Oooh ha oooo ha oooo ha. The “so-called plotters” failed.

Mawan and Tiong should have “kampua mee “together and see where they can go from here.

Mawan is a survivor and a very tenacious one and he should know that those who promised the world in terms of numbers should not be championing for themselves anymore but be blown away like the mists.

They know who they are and they must be willing to take the fall. Mawan and Tiong love their ‘charkueh tiaw” and kampua mee.

Pic 1Masing has already won the battle. He won it without even a fight. He had the BN “merger of minds” . The 11 new allocated seats are a lifeline to Adenan. He knows it and he will use this to achieve his mandate. Adenan already spelt it out clearly where the battleground is. Its the rural areas and he will not sacrifice his high ground to the opposition and more so to the infighting between TERAS/SPDP.

The “Sarawak for Sarawakians” movement is another factor which must not be taken lightly especially in the rural areas where ‘drumming into the minds” does take effect to especially to the younger set of voters.

Adenan have informed the BN coalition partners and grassroots members know the ‘history”  of all the opposition parties and their members. He will plan everything before he calls for elections. He understands the situation but does Mawan,Tiong,Masing know whether he wants them to fight head-on or call for a strategic truce of some kind.

Adenan as commander in chief  would not take too much risks or chances. He will go back to his drawing board and assess. This must have  cropped up in his mind when he was the executor behind Taib Mahmud. Its time for his executors to also know.

” The D-Day invasion of Europe was one of the most thorougly organised in history. With 175000 troops from four countries involving 5000 ships.every detail was planned scientifically. The invasion was practised for months in various venues. During the run up to the invasion,the Allies created various “DECEPTIONS” about where and when the invasion would occur”

Sarawakians-must-realise_1024x576There must be a carefull balance and he knows the ‘dayak sentiments” and groundswell is gaining momentum as new and untested young dayak voters are very well informed. The dayaks would want very much to be “recognised and respected” after struggling to get a firm footing. If the Merger is realised there should not be U-Turn.

The BN candidate will be nominated by the party and agreed in principle by the BN4 team. of course its the prerogative of the BN State Chairman but he too needs to get the blessing from the overall BN Chairman. The BN candidate needs to be elected by the people and it is also up to the party to lobby for Ministerial posts. The final say in lobbying will be up to the Chief Minister as its his prerogative. That’s basically the standard operating procedure for all assemblymen.

In this Merger process the UPP/SUPP dilemma should not be brought up. The parties of PRS/SPDP/TERAS will be showing them the way and no one should stay in the way and act as spoiler. This could be used as a yardstick to show that even how bitter the pill it could be swallowed.

Mawan a veteran politician knows when the bricks are being pilled in, he of all people would not want to stay there and be buried under it. There are indications from our various sources that  Barisan Nasional leaders would welcome such a movement which will make BN stronger going into the State elections.

James loves a good kampua too and he does get it all the time when he pays a visit to Belaga which is also a PRS stronghold. Mawan and Tiong loves a Peninsular “Char Kueh Tiaw” but if invited by Tiong for a local foochow  “Kam Pua Mee” he would come. Having said that,”the rebellious few who only champions for themselves must be put in the back burner for now.

Joseph Entulu knows that PRS being a strong and solid party needs to look at all options first and he could put a stumbling block to the “merger of minds’ of PRS/SPDP/TERAS.

The enemy is not outside of BN. It is inside and those who don’t try to resolve their differences will not escape the eyes of the executors. The Commander in Chief besides the executors have his two Generals in Johari and Tengah those rebellious few will be spent force.

Adenan and his executors knows Sun Tze’s central thesis that is “YOU CAN AVOID FIGHTING WHEN YOU PLAN THE RIGHT STRATEGY

The first move has been initiated by SPDP in their August 16th Supreme Council meeting. Adenan knows the battlefield well and he has scars to prove it. Adenan cannot afford this large scale war amongst BN component  parties and BN friendly parties to continue. The opposition will capitalise and the voters will turn their backs especially so when there is infighting. Time to end all the bickering and go into battle as a solid front will be BN and Adenans chances of an overwhelming majority.

Then his Oooo ha’s will sent a strong signal to everyone that its his MANDATE ………

BN PRS/SPDP/TERAS “Merger of Minds”

Does everything come a full circle? Not everything, but most of it. Well, are you going to dispel the fact that all the leaders of these three parties will go back to their beginning into ONE BIG ENTITY.

A senior SPDP politician Datuk Paul Igai was quoted,” he expected a “major development” to take place before state elections are called. TERAS Supreme Council member concurred and called it ,”merger of the minds” Tan Sri James Masing was cautious in his choice of words,”“Let’s see what are the reactions of our members first to the merger proposal”

At the recent PBB MKT meeting on the 16th August 2015 CM Adenan was asked a question,”Have you indicate to other parties to prepare for elections. I do that all the time he said.” But he added and “TO RESOLVE THEIR DIFFERENCES…..it could be seen that the Deputy President and Senior Vice President of PBB Abang Johari and Awang Tengah nodded with agreement with the CM Adenan.

An argument put forward by a BN sympathiser,”Will PBB allow this merger of minds to happen? The dayaks will all be housed in one big house and they will be a threat to PBB. Of course if you look at the political mathematics that would not even be a threat as PRS 9 Seats, SPDP 8 seats only totals to 17 seats, SUPP are by consensus allocated 19 seats while PBB 35 seats.

It must be noted though that politicians by and large will follow the flow of the river and will not try to go against the current to stay alive politically. PBB with 35 seats will of course be fearful of SUPP/PRS/SPDP combination but has the TERAS and UPP card at the moment to play with.

Adenan still requires a fresh MANDATE and he will need his executors to move and solve both issues and affecting the parties concerned or to come out with a BOLDER APPROACH OF “merger of minds entity in PRS/SPDP/TERAS. Solving the rural based parties problems would see PBB and the new entity winning,winning back losts seats and maintaining the grip for Barisan Nasional.

19 seats which are allocated to SUPP which the majority have been taken over by DAP will see the dominant Chinese Urban based parties slugging it out between SUPP/DAP/UPP/independants which according to a Chinese analyst ‘the bests man win”. Chinese voters are being enticed he said by Adenans call for greater control of Education for the state which is good no doubt. However this are just populists statements and one would wonder what DAP or the opposition pact would come out with come election day.

One clear indicator would be,” Will the BN Federal Government dare to answer the EDUCATION question?” if they are tight-lipped over the education issue, the analyst said the tables will not turn for the BN candidate to make much impact against the DAP. The issues at hand with the higher prices for goods, ringgit spiralling out of control and other factors will affect the urban cyber savvy voters.

As for the rural seats its not so much that the leaders of the political parties are at logger heads but the constant pushing, back biting and annoyance comes form those second echelon leaders. A senior leader said to us,”  if you look at SPDP/TERAS its people like Robert Ayu, Alexander Asing, Banyi Beriak who wants to stand and be a candidate and knows that with BN ticket in Sarawak chances of winning in the rural areas is 60%. Who doesn’t want to be BN Assemblyman? Mawan,Tiong have their own seats in ADUN and MP and they are comfortable in their own right”

So the question is who are making it impossible for the parties to merge or at bests to see the SPDP/TERAS combination back to its former glory? One political pundit remarked,” Did you know that Tiong and Mawan as friends had “cha kueh tiaw” together in KL after the Parliament sitting? Of course we would say,true or not which is commonly asked  plus are you trying to create a friction for Mawan and the other TERAS aasemblyman?”

It does seem that some Sarawak based Peninsular Bloggers up to no good again. Our political pundit says PBB/BN  knows who they are and they should not meddle in Sarawak affairs.Moreover they are not fine tuned to the local cultures even though some are married or have decided to live in Sarawak. Our political culture is now being tested to the fullest as the ‘minds have been bombarded with more lies, allegations, defamation and names selling.

He continued,”Truth can become Untruth while Rumours can become Truth” All these political movement are for the “BETTER GOOD OF BN SARAWAK” Some who yearn for political standing will need to wait for their turn as the road deviates and they need also to fine tune to the Sarawak political landscape.  

It’s not something new on the political mergers and we all are not too excited about it. Or are we? Even one of the executors from PBB  looks at it as a Unity of the Dayaks? Certainly if it happens we will witness the history of A FULL POLITICAL CIRCLE .{ chronology:- Sunday 16th August 2015 SPDP seriously talked about merger. PRS initiated the idea very much earlier in 2006 but was given cool reception (vice-versa). Today 20th Augusts 2015 its all splashed in the mass/media.}

Adenan would be saying to us all oooo ha, ooooha, ooooha U U…. Case solved...Thanks for giving me another 5 years as CM Sarawak”
