Chief Ministers Men Series 3

GSTCome April 1st the much talked about GST will come into force. (The 6% of Goods & Services Tax ) GST (Goods & Services Tax), which is also known as VAT or the value added tax in many countries is a multi-stage consumption tax on goods and services.

GST is levied on the supply of goods and services at each stages of the supply chain from the supplier up to the retail stage of the distribution. Even though GST is imposed at each level of the supply chain, the tax element does not become part of the cost of the product because GST paid on

The opposition front have been making a lot of loud noises inside and outside of Parliament to the extend of the people following blindly and believing. The government is implementing the GST after only a thorough breakdown and careful study of the effects and also to ensure the people and economy will not be badly affected.

In Sarawak the GST will initially be felt ‘minor tremors”but in our CM’s series 3 the GST comes into effect with the Acronym “Gago Sangat Tok”- Actually the article will be focus on the lobbying of seats available for the 11th Sarawak State Elections.

The Hudud issue have got to the Pakatan coalition front of DAP leaving the front as it feels that they have been backstabbed at the back. Their statement reads,: “DAP Sarawak regrets that PAS has deviated from their PR common policy framework by pursuing the implementation of HUDUD law in Malaysia. With PAS remaining as a component party in PR Sarawak, DAP Sarawak has resolved and made the painful decision to quit from PR Sarawak” SO DAP will not have much to worry about GAGO SANGAT TOK (GST). They will need not to bow down to the demands with PKR and they will be able to venture in their “IMPIAN SARAWAK” where the rural seats will be their priority.

They will be calling their own shots and even if they do come together with PKR and other local parties they will have the upper hand. After all they have 12 ADUNS with PKR only 3 and the other an Independent. The game played by the DAP hierarchy in Sarawak looks simple enough to draw first blood to ensure that their voters will continue to believe in them as they are genuinely serious in their political fight. It will be so different for DAP if the BN Chinese based parties are not still at each other necks.

The Chief Minister Adenan have listened and handed down grants to the Chinese Community on Education and have done his utmost in eradicating corrupted officers who have their hands in illegal logging and even made his stand on stopping  the catcalls of PENDATANG.The Chief Ministers Men are trying their best but it seems the political parties involved are not heeding the calls. On the ground it does seem that it will still be very much an uphill tasks for the BN Chinese parties to regain lost ground.

LET US BE ABSOLUTELY TRUTHFUL ABOUT THE WHOLE SCENARIO. ITS THE ENEMY WITHIN WHO ARE KILLING THEMSELVES AND NOT ANY OUTSIDER.

SUPP and UPP have to understand that no other BN coalition parties are lobbying for the urban seats. Both of them at the time of writing cannot even be seen cordially at political functions.

DONT THE VOTERS KNOW …. ESPECIALLY THE URBAN ONES?

However in the rural bastion of safe seats for BN the scenario is very much dissimilar. The claims are more like what PBB Belaga Youth claims to contest in the New seats of Murum. This have also been counter claim by PRS who says that the seat is in their Parliamentary area of Ulu Rejang and their State seat  of Belaga. It is no secret that the lobbying have been intensified to the extend that the ADUN of Katibas  have even stepped in to ask all parties not to create the rift which will be of no benefit to the BN coalition. He is afterall a former Secretary general to PBB and he knows only too well the ultimate reaction from the top lleadership. ( This is not to be revealed here)

Lobbying of course in the rural areas comes in many forms and three or four days festivities at each constituency thrown by the aspiring candidates are not unusual. The Chief Ministers men have seen it too often in past campaigns and the signature campaigns are widely used as the Internet technology of Whatsapp  (print screen) or Emails will have very little effect in this rural areas. The Chief Minister has already a list of potential candidates drawn up by his inner circles and he will have the final say no matter who GAGO SANGAT TOK (GST) The political parties will all have their own lists no doubt but the final say will be left to the BN Sarawak Chairman as he will be leading the team to the elections.

Our intelligence sources say that many veteran BN ADUNS are hopeful that their previous track record will get them considered or retained for the 71 seats. The 11 new seats will be divided amongst the BN coalition and here will be seen new, fresh faced and younger candidates.

The AIR OF RUMOURTISM has that they will be changes in a few constituency amongst them ARE YOU READY? These are the lists which are widely spoken as the election candidacy hots up:- Tamin ,Semop Jemoreng, Jepak, Muara Tuang Layar Bukit Begunan,Lingga Tupong Batu Danau.It does seem that GST ADUNS have got on the ground and worked hard and hopefully will not be dropped from the final lists.

Of course the Chief Ministers men have said its the AIR OF RUMOURTISM but CM Adenan will say YOU UU..( these are the reasons and here are the reports from JASA,SB and grassroots )

Chief minister men knows that the TEAM matters more than a few who thinks that they deserve the chances again when they are not seen to be politically motivated no more and they have also outlived their political lifeline.  They might still be useful in other ways to the State administration and some will even be given government positions if BN are returned to power. Their experiences are much needed but to serve their constituencies is another matter.

GST will be implemented on April 1st but GAGO SANGAT TOK lobbying will be carried on till the final lists will be drawn. it does pay though to be close too the Chief Ministers Men and Series 4 to 13th will come sooner than expected. Until then just stay focus on your work which you have been assigned.”Don’t Over Over huh in your political ambitions as the…..

CM Sarawak will say this to all   “YOU…UU”

20% Royalty ‘The Truth is Out There”

MsiaKini # 1803I do wonder sometimes whether some of  our journalist friends are ethically doing their work correctly and reporting the truth. People do believe in spins because half truths could be real but when its only one sided reporting the news that comes out leaves a lot to be desired.

We received this piece of information and reading it in Bahasa Malaysia it does not even say the Sarawak State has failed. The Chief Minister needs the support of the people for a new mandate and he will push for the 20% royalty and negotiations with the Federal government. ( Translation from BM to English needs to be understood in the whole context )

PLEASE READ IT AND RE-READ AND DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SPIN IT OUT OF CONTROL. CM ADENAN KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING..

Kuching:  Ketua Menteri, Tan Sri Adenan Satem, memberi jaminan kerajaan negeri tidak akan menghentikan rundingan untuk mendapatkan kenaikan royalti minyak dan gas sehingga keputusan positif diperolehi.
Beliau berkata, tuntutan itu wajar kerana rakyat Sarawak berhak menikmati wang hasil bumi itu untuk meningkatkan taraf hidup setanding penduduk negeri lain.
Bagaimanapun katanya, beliau tidak mampu untuk mendesak Kerajaan Pusat supaya mempertimbangkan kenaikan royalti daripada lima peratus kepada 20 peratus itu tanpa sokongan padu rakyat.
“Sokongan yang saya maksudkan bukan hanya pada waktu pilihanraya sahaja, tetapi sokongan sepanjang masa terutamanya dalam isu tuntutan royalti ini.
“Dengan adanya sokongan padu segenap lapisan rakyat tanpa mengira fahaman politik, suara saya akan lebih didengari oleh Kerajaan Pusat dan PETRONAS,” katanya.
Beliau berkata demikian ketika berucap merasmikan Persidangan Pekebun Kecil dan Usahawan Komoditi Kebangsaan, di sini, semalam.
Turut hadir, Timbalannya, Tan Sri Alfred Jabu Numpang dan Menteri Perusahaan Perladangan dan Komoditi, Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas.
Adenan berkata, Sarawak menuntut kenaikan royalti itu untuk memastikan kemudahan infrastruktur yang lebih sempurna dapat disediakan untuk rakyat.
“Kita mengutamakan penyediaan kemudahan asas seperti jalan raya, bekalan elektrik dan air untuk rakyat khususnya di kawasan luar bandar.
“Selepas semua kemudahan itu disediakan di semua kawasan luar bandar, barulah kita memikirkan pembangunan yang lain. Kemudahan infrastruktur ini dapat kita sediakan dengan lebih baik jika kita mendapat penambahan royalti minyak dan gas,” katanya.
Katanya lagi, apabila pembangunan infrastuktur antara luar bandar dan bandar diseimbangkan, hasrat untuk mengurangkan penghijrahan penduduk akan dapat dikurangkan.
“Penghijrahan penduduk dari luar bandar berlaku kerana mereka mahu mencari peluang kehidupan yang lebih baik di bandar.
“Sebab itu saya merayu supaya diberi peluang kerana dengan mandat serta sokongan saya akan lebih keupayaan untuk memantapkan pembangunan negeri selain meneruskan rundingan dengan PETRONAS”katanya

Bloggers to be Unmasked…??

secretbloggerWouldn’t it just be timely for MCMC to expose or unmask all the bloggers.? Should they….??  Remarkably,it does seem that ‘someone” is being hit right at the heart and the subject matter is nevertheless being debated in the corridors of power. Will Justice be served many asks?

Our and most blogger opinions in cyber space are being scrutinised and many in power are feeling the heat. No one will be left unattended to as and when the blogger in question digs up all the dirt and posts it on line. The truth hurts and we know that many will rather be on the “good-side ” of these bloggers rather than be on the WRONGSIDE.

Be prepared to face the wrath of the bloggers when they get their act together. The pen is mightier than the sword but they are ways to stop the bloggers but authorities would rather scrutinise their writings before acting. MCMC knows best and they would not just act as per what this extracted article have in mind.

The extracted article  

Umno leaders have described the anonymous bloggers who attacked Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and others as cowards and non-credible, saying it is unethical to hide behind unnamed postings to attack people.

Kedah Umno leader Datuk Othman Aziz said it was irresponsible of the anonymous bloggers to play up issues related to state investment firm 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) merely to split the country’s leadership.

“If we want to raise an issue, we have to be responsible and comment responsibly. We cannot try to confuse the readers or worse, exploit an issue until we pit one person against another,” said Othman, who is Jerlun MP.

Besides Dr Mahathir, The Edge publisher Tong Kooi Ong and CIMB Group chairman Datuk Seri Nazir Razak had also been attacked.

The Edge recently revealed that the blogger behind the malaysianexpose.wordpress.com which carried several accusations against the trio, is also behind other blogs which have published complimentary articles on businessman Low Taek Jho.

Low has since denied being part of attacks, saying he respected the trio for their professional achievements.

Othman said it looked as though the anonymous bloggers had the bad intention of seeing the country ruined.

“As a responsible citizen, Dr Mahathir will give his views if he feels there are mistakes that needed to be corrected.

“If such anonymous attacks continue, in the end it will affect our country’s economy. Will we be happy to see our economy become haphazard?” he asked.

He said it was pointless for the anonymous bloggers to succeed in their attempts when in the end, the ones who lose out are Malaysians themselves.

“His motive might be political and might be aimed at toppling the current government. He may succeed but what’s the point; in the end, the country might be in chaos.”

Sabah Umno leader Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin said the bloggers’ actions were aimed at seeing two of the country’s senior leaders clash.

This, he said, was evident in the actions of numerous bloggers who raised issues to provoke a clash between previous leaders like Dr Mahathir and former finance minister Tun Daim Zainuddin, with prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“This should be stopped because I don’t see any positive impact from such actions,” he said.

The Kinabatangan MP said bloggers must be ethical and responsible in their writings and not make any allegations without facts.

“As a responsible blogger, one cannot simply write without concrete facts to back it up,” he added.

Umno leader Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said while it is quite normal for writers to have pen-names, it is another thing entirely when one hides behind anonymity of the Internet to attack people.

“Being anonymous is something else. It is as if one is hiding from something, more so when you are attacking someone else. It is unethical to hide behind the anonymity of blogs to attack people,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

He suggested that those who have been maligned or wrongly accused by such bloggers lodge reports with either the police or the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said unethical bloggers who make a living as weapons of powerful people have abused the Internet.

“In this case, it’s clear that there is political motivation behind the actions of all the parties involved.

“But I think people are smart enough to know this is a game of vested interests,” he said.

Nur Jazlan, who is Umno’s Pulai MP, believed anonymous bloggers are on the payroll of individuals or parties to go around disparaging the reputations of others.

“What would be their motive to smear peoples’ reputations if not for money?”

However, he said it will be very difficult for MCMC to stop such acts as the Internet is an open platform, adding that Malaysians must be educated on such matters.

Pengerang MP Datuk Seri Azalina Othman said she was disgusted by such acts, describing them as “cowardly”.

“If you are championing a cause, why hide behind anonymity? If you are a blogger, put down your name… I think it’s a bit cowardly not to.

“You have the freedom to write whatever you want to write, you should put your name to your opinions,” said the former Puteri Umno chief.

Kelab Chedet exco member Mohd Ikhmal Abu Bakar said anonymous bloggers have no credibility, unlike those who put their names and face to their writings.

He cited the example of Dr Mahathir who he said takes responsibility over his blog postings.

“I ask that these anonymous bloggers come forward and show yourself. Do not attack and hide behind the anonymity of your blogs.

“If you are brave enough to criticise, you should be brave enough to put your name to it,” he said.

He said those who attack personalities but hide their identity have no “value”.

“These people have no credibility and to me, their writing has no impact. People do not know who he is.

“If The Malaysian Insider did not come up with the story, people will ignore the blogger,” he said, referring to the blogger who made accusations of currency speculation.

“The public should not believe in the writings by anonymous bloggers.” – February 4, 2015.

Ridhuan Tee Abdullah”Internal Investigation..?”

adscaPKR will not let go of this issue so easily. Certainly they will be an investigation by the relevant authorities an aides close to the Chief Minister Adenan.

He too will not just let this incident be brushed under the carpet as it will affect his credibility as a leader who has yet to be tested in a battle ,”the State Elections.”

How the AXE COMES DOWN on those responsible is not in our hands and we know for a fact that CM Adenan will not let up until he smoke those responsible out of their FOXHOLES.

We know Adenan “has a very Fierce Face” when he mentioned it in his 100 days Interview. But beneath his face he has a kind heart but when he is angered he doesn’t show unlike the “HULK” but he will investigate it fully. He for one does not want to see any divisions within PBB and to those who thinks that they can DERAIL HIS PLANS through this they must have tuned into the WRONG CHANNEL.

This we extracted from Adenan. We are sure that he will not let up on this matter or else his good work will just be flushed out in an instant.

At a press conference to mark his 100 days as Chief Minister, he said racism and religious intolerance were “not in character with the people of Sarawak”.

“We have lived harmoniously all these many years and it is my responsibility to see that we, people of all races and culture, continue to live harmoniously together,” he said.

“May 13 never happened here. As far as Sarawak is concerned, May 13 (race riots in 1969) was a distant thunder on the other side of the hill.”

This is the strongest yet from CM Adenan,”One way to safeguard the harmony in the state, he said, was to keep religious fanatics and racists “of all colours” out.

HONESTLY, DO YOU THINK ADENAN WILL NOT TAKE ACTION ON THIS ISSUE..?

 

 

 

Bible Seizure..I don’t want to hear about it anymore

T03398Tan Sri Dr James Masing doesn’t want to hear of another Bible-seizing incident.

“I don’t want to see or even hear of another incident involving the seizure of our Bibles. Don’t let it happen again,” the outspoken Land Development Minister from Sarawak told theantdaily.

He was commenting on the return of the seized Bibles today to the Association of Churches in Sarawak which signalled an end to the religious saga that hogged the nation since January this year.

The release of 321 copies of the holy book, however, came with two conditions; one, that they are not to be distributed in Selangor, especially among Muslims, and two, they are only for Christians in Sarawak.

Nevertheless, for Christians throughout the country, news of the release of the Malay and Iban-language Bibles was a welcome relief.

Arguing that the seizure was illegal in the first place as it went against the Federal Constitution, which guaranteed freedom of worship, Masing felt that some overzealous officials had gone overboard.

“It’s illegal in the first place…even the AG has ordered the Bibles to be returned. They should not have detained the holy book until now,” he said.

The minister appeared upset with the conditions that the Iban-language Bibles should not be distributed in Selangor and could only be used in Sarawak.

His concern is understandable as there is a sizable Sarawak population in Selangor who are Christians. And this group has been using the Malay and Iban-language Bibles.

So what happens to the thousands of Sarawak Christians residing in Selangor who have all along been using the Iban-language Bibles?

Says Masing: “There should be no restriction for Sarawak Christians in Selangor as long as these Bibles are only for them. Of course it would be wrong if they are given to non-Christians.”

The controversy began in January this year when Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) officials seized the Bibles from the Bible of Society of Malaysia (BSM) on grounds that the Bibles violated a 1988 Selangor enactment which prohibited non-Muslims from using the word “Allah”.

The Bibles were handed to the chairman of the Association of Churches in Sarawak, Rev Archbishop Datuk Bolly Lapok, in a simple ceremony at the Istana Alam Shah in Klang witnessed by Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah and Menteri Besar Azmin Ali.

After the ceremony, Azmin had twitted that an “amicable solution” had been reached.

Unlike his predecessor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, Azmin had taken a tougher stand and stood up for the Christian community, arguing that the Bibles did not belong to the Muslims and therefore should be returned to the Christians.

“Islam has never asked its followers to disrupt the harmony of other faiths. It is our duty to respect the practice of the other religions in the country. This is a multi-religious society. This is not Saudi Arabia or Sudan. This is Malaysia. This is Selangor.”

His remarks were welcomed by the Christian community.

The MCA, meanwhile, in urging Azmin to ensure there is no repeat of the fiasco, regrets the condition which prohibits the distribution of the Iban-language Bibles in Selangor.

Gan

The party’s Syariah Law and Policy Implementation Special Task Force chairman Gan Ping Siew questioned how Sarawak and Sabah Bumiputeras working in the armed forces, police force, civil service or studying on the peninsular alongside with Orang Asli Christians whose first language is Bahasa Malaysia would refer to their scriptures.

He called on state governments to look into the relevant provisions in the state enactments to enable Malay-speaking Christian Bumiputeras and Orang Aslis to have access to Bahasa Malaysia or native-language versions of the Bible in their homes and places of worship in the peninsula.
