Music To Start My Day and End My Week...

.....there was music to accompany our aerobics class this morning at Taman Lembah Kiara in Taman Tun Dr Ismail...Hurray!

Because of a technical problem at the park, our instructor had not been able to play his music for our session the last three weeks.

So, finally...this morning was good!

But, hush....don't ask me about other things, ok?

I can tell you about last night's All-Blogs 100 Days gathering, though.

It was great ---so many people were there, among whom were newly-elected wakil rakyat, Nuru Izzah Anwar ( who came with hubby Raja Ahmad Shahrir), Loh Gwo Burne, Wee Choo Keong and Mukhriz Mahathir.
Marina Mahathir, Raja Petra Kamaruddin and wife, Marina as well as Engku Emran and celebrity wife, Erra Fazira were also among the more than 100 people at Blog House.

Nurul Izzah and Marina chatted for a bit. Raja Petra was invited to say a few words. He refused to be drawn into making any strong political statements. But, nobody was disappointed.

Instead, he said at Blog House, everyone comes together and discard their political (or personal) differences.

Read more about it H E R E.

To a better week ahead!

Analysis - Sodomy Allegation and SDs; Who the real conspirators are? The invincible and power 3rd party behind all this?

Let's track the issue and see if we can detect who the real conspirators are likely to be.
Anwar's people accuse Najib as being the conspirator in the sodomy allegation, and vice versa i.e. Anwar's people meanwhile being accused of masterminding the statutory declarations (SD) implicating Najib.
But is there a possibility that there is an invisible yet powerful third party who is conspiring to ignite a war between Anwar and Najib?
Let's find out.
1) It would be extremely foolish for Najib to meet Saiful at the comfort of Najib's residence barely a few days before Saiful's police report was leaked to the media, if Najib is really part of the conspiracy to smear Anwar. And I don't think Najib is that foolish. It looks more as though Najib is being set-up by a third party.
2) Why would Saiful would want to meet Najib first before lodging a police report? Who suggested to Saiful to meet Najib and who facilitated his meeting with Najib? The same third party?
3) How come it wasn't the police but Anwar that leaked Saiful's police report to the media? Who gave such info to Anwar? The same third party?
4) A photo of Saiful and Najib's aide, and photos of Saiful with 3 other Ministers appeared on the internet in the middle of the night i.e. within hours of Anwar's press conference. Is it the same third party, who has a 'file' on Saiful who sent such photos to Anwar's camp in order to link Najib to the accusation?
5) Anwar claimed to have recently obtained some evidence linking the IGP and AG to some wrongdoings. Again, the same third party sent that dossier to Anwar?
6) Balasundram claimed that he made the 1st SD under duress. Is it the same third party that forced Bala to make that 1st SD?
7) Anwar claims the DPM's office is plotting to assassinate him. Who feed him such ridiculous info? The same third party again?
[Balasubramaniam's retraction statutory declaration was affirmed before commissioner of oaths Zainal Abidin Muhayat, bearing an address that has been traced to Zul Rafique & Partners - a pro-establishment law firm owned by Zulkifly Rafique who is Federal Territories minister Zulhasnan Rafique's brother. Raja Petra has many articles on this legal firm]

An invisible and powerful third party behind all the above?
Think about it.
Now, assuming if Anwar's sexual tendencies is true as alleged (even 10 judges agreed with that. See
1) Dr M: Court ruling doesn't mean Anwar didn't do it

2) "If we count, we will find that all the 10 judges who heard the case of Anwar sodomising Azizan (Abu Bakar, his former family driver) agreed that Anwar committed sodomy, although the two (judges) used technical reasons to not find him guilty," he said in his blog Che Det.


i) Is it a possibility that Saiful (being a jambu..) is being 'planted' in Anwar's office as a way to 'induce and trap' Anwar (even without Saiful realising he is being used) by the same third party? (Well,one way is to find out from Saiful who suggested to him and facilitated his entry into Anwar's office).
2) Is there a possibility that there sodomy case did happen as alleged (as it was a trap laid by the third party using Saiful even without the latter's knowledge), and its exposure is however being manipulated to link to Najib (again, by the same third party)? So that a war will ignite between Anwar and Najib?
No doubt such exposure at the end of the day is putting the Government in a bad light, thanks to Anwar's powerful spin and propaganda machine. No doubt Paklah as the head of the Govt is the one affected since confidence in his Govt is being eroded by claims of conspiracy and link to a murder case etc.
But such bad publicity for the Govt has no immediate and tangible impact at all since the next general election is 4-5 years away!
Having said that, however, if we were to compare between Paklah, Najib and Tun Dr. M, the impact of such allegations (both alleged sodomy and SD linking to Altantuya's murder) have varying effect on the three of them, with Paklah being the least affected!
Why?
The mainstream media is having a full day recapping the recent sodomy allegation to the 1998 sodomy charge against Anwar; implying that a political conspiracy was hatched by the previous Administration at that time, . thus putting Tun in a bad light. Even the IGP and AG are now accused by Anwar to be part of the conspirators back then.
At the same time, the Statutory Declarations (By Bala and RPK) gave bad publicity to Najib.
Despite all these, notice that Anwar (through Wan Azizah) actually met Paklah to seek help and assurance from him. So in essence, Paklah personally is not affected (in the court of public opinion) at all by those allegations. But Najib and Tun, yes.
Assuming that there is indeed an invisible and powerful third party which plotted and hatched the conspiracies to pit the two camps (Anwar's and Najib's) with each other, what is their main motive then?
Well, one can't help but notice that the ONLY major political event coming up is the UMNO elections due at the end of the year!
With UMNO's divisions in at least four states, UMNO's Management Committee (Najib, Muhyiddin, Rafidah, Hishamuddin and Noraini) and even the majority of Supreme Council members putting strong pressure on Paklah to step down, Paklah's position looks increasingly untenable. Judging from the mood on the ground, there are even talks that some forces are hatching that Paklah won't get enough nominations from UMNO divisions to even qualify to run as President!
Since Najib has indicated that he hasn't decided whether to contest the presidency (thus implying that he is open to being nominated as President), the real battle taking place now is actually on the ground in UMNO's over 200 division. And not in the media!
The only way (that the conspirators think?) for Paklah to survive politically is to ensure that 'dirt' sticks on his successor hoping that either one of these two things may happen;
1) Najib may succumb due to the pressure and declare publicly (or even privately to the Divisions) that he will not accept nominations to the post of President (Who knows maybe the 'attacks' on him may stop after that?)
2) Even if he does not do that and willing to be nominated instead, the bad publicity from those allegations (they hope) may deter UMNO Divisions from nominating him as President since he is tainted.
Makes sense?
Now, isn't it clear from the analysis above that the third party (if it exists) is not only pitting Anwar against Najib, but is also 'screwing' both of them as well?
Isn't it clear that Tun Dr. M's name is also being dragged in the mud as well from the sodomy allegations? (kiling two birds wil one stone, eh?)
Isn't it clear that the clear winner in both cases is actually Paklah? Mere coincidence?
Now the question is – At the end of the day, will we actually get to know the truth what happened in both cases (sodomy allegation against Anwar & Altantuya murder case)?
Or a round of deception for political expediency will take place, yet again?

Nuraina,
A really great way to end the week. Enough of politics already.

Phew.. well certainly nice to get a breather from the circus going in right now. And good to hear the All-Blogs 100 Days went well too. Yes, let's hope to a better week, months, years ahead. But why do I have this hollow feeling that that's not going to happen?

to Are we being diverted?

take a rest from politics, let the politicians handle their own problems and do their own work. There is no use in assuming anything at the moment.

Go enjoy a movie, a game,karaoke or something.. as long as you feel good and fresh the next day or when you meet friends :D

While everyone are so busy with the "Malaysia's Circus", nobody notice of the new electric tariff and also the abolishment of 20-days interest free of credit cards. What will happen to us, the citizen? The richer getting rich..the poorer getting poorer, the in between stuck in the middle..

Hi, Nuraina
I am posting something you might be already well verse by now.
The HEARSAY of SD.

Below is just something to make this legal aspect of RPK SD more simplify to be understood by normal people. Since it is copied from my posting in my active blog (which got nothing to do with politic blog), some part might sound a little harsh.

*****************************
Titled : The Magician & The Fool

By now most should know that RPK SD is just a Blatant Lie.

But why there is this small nudging question of
"Why will he Lie so Blatantly, doesn't he afraid of the BIG consequences of his allegation in view of the GREAT seriousness of his accusation ?"
"Since he is not afraid of the dire effect of his LIE , then there is a possibility of his LIE is not a LIE ?"

The biggest mistake of most sceptical or believer on RPK SD is on stressing on the BIG consequences of his allegation in view of the GREAT seriousness of his accusation.

What if I tell you the consequences he will received if he is proven wrong is indeed very SMALL .
And his allegation is actually is of LITTLE seriousness instead.
And in view of this SMALL consequences and LITTLE seriousness, doesn't this explain why he dare to make the SD at the First place ?

What RPK did was to CREATE the ILLUSION of making small thing look BIG.... and woala ... everyONE been FOOLED .
Can I explain more elaborately on these ? Why don't you try it first.


*********************************

Titled: RPK, The Informant & The Judge

In The Donkey Court

Judge : RPK, why do you lie about your SD ?
RPK : No, I did not lie.

Judge : You mean you have proof that Rosmah was at the crime site ?
RPK : No, that is not my SD is all about ?

Judge : What is your SD is about then ?
RPK : I declared that I hear my imformant said that Rosmah was at the crime scene.

Judge : Now ... you are NOT going to tell who is your imformant so that we cannot certify your SD isn't it ?
RPK : As a matter of fact, I have bring my informant to certify my SD.

Judge : WHAT !!? Really ?
RPK : This is my Informant ~ Mr.Linggam/ Anwar/AhChong/Badawi (Choose anyone, it won't change a thing)

Judge : So Mr. Linggam, did you say that Rosmah was at the crime scene ?
Inform: Yes, I did.

Judge : How do you know Rosmah was at the scene ?
Inform: Actually I was drunk when I say it. I say it at my personal home. I did not make a statutory declaration that it was true.

Judge : So, you did not believe that Rosmah was there ?
Inform: What I believe or not is not important. I did not swear on anything and I did not say or spread it to the Public too.

Judge : How come you never come forward to clear this thing up before ?
Inform: How do I know that it was me that RPK is talking about ? He just declared the guy as 'Infromant.'
Anyway I can't really remember about it, I was drunk.

RPK : So, Judge ~ my declaration of what I hear is true, isn't it ?
Judge : Yes. It is true.

Inform: Judge, since I did not declared anything, but say it at my personal home, that's mean I did not break any law ?
Judge : Yes. You did not break any law.

Judge : whoaaa... like this I also can declare anything too !
RPK : Yes you can judge. RM 4 only. Need my help ?

***

Anyone still want to call him HERO ?
Anyone still want to call him courageous ?
Anyone still want to call him a person who dare to take account on what he said ?
**********************************

Title : untitled

So, the One been called 'THE BLATANT LIAR' is actually not a LIAR after all

**********************************

Title : untitled


That is the reason why Rosmah does not waste time trying to SUE him !
Sueing for what ? Saying her at the crime scene ? No, he did not say so.
How about sueing the informant ? No, the informant did not declared anything.

Although RPK did not LIE, his intention is obvious
~ to create a pillar for LIEs to be spread directly or indirectly from his SD.
~ to tarnish Najib image
~ with this "CUNNING" effort
~ people are manipulated, fooled and confused
~ it also started and fanning more LIEs and SLANDERs
~ which if not counter will start to be absorb and parasiting into our Blogging Cultures.
