Anwar and the death ropes



The PKR headquarters today issued a statement on DS Anwar Ibrahim’s nationwide road tour ahead of the final appeal of his sodomy conviction at Federal Court on Oct 28 and 29.


The road tour will start with a Deepavali function in Klang on Oct 21, followed by other functions in Penang, Kedah, Perak, Terengganu, Pahang, Malacca, Johor, and Selangor.


The climax of the “Himpunan Solidariti Bersama Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim” will be at Stadium Kelana Jaya on Oct 27.


It’s an obvious attempt by Anwar to pre-empt the possibility of the Federal Court upholding the decision by the Court of Appeals which sentenced him to a five years imprisonment for sodomising his aide.


The Court of Appeals had in March overturned a lower court’s decision which had acquitted him of the charge.


The road tour will be Anwar’s attempt to whip up public support for him, which he hopes will damage the ruling Barisan Nasional and to a certain extent influence the court’s decision.


It is the same strategy which he employed when he was sacked from his deputy prime minister post on Sept 2, 1998.


Anwar had then went on a whirl wind tour of the country to galvanize support for himself.


It triggered the Reformasi movement which resulted in a string of violent street protests in downtown KL before Anwar was arrested and jailed for abuse of power.


BN took a severe blow at the 1999 general election, with Malays’ votes for the coalition being reduced to just about 37 per cent.


The Chinese community, spooked by the violent Reformasi protests which participants were overwhelmingly Malays, went all out to support BN, thus saving the coalition at the polls.


This time, Anwar is hoping for the same to happen again…except of course the part where the Chinese community’s votes save BN.


It is however doubtful that he will get his wish.


Back then he was only 51. Now he is 66.


I don’t think that many young people are fanatical about Anwar now.


How many of them are willing to go to the streets just to defend him?


Are young DAP supporters willing to clash with the police over Anwar?


How about Pas people? Is it going to be a jihad to go to the streets to prevent Anwar from being jailed for committing sodomy?


I don’t think so.


The Pakatan people do not say it out loud but I think most of them are actually glad that Anwar may soon be out of the picture.


He is actually a liability to them now.


I had talked with many Pakatan supporters about Anwar and his political baggage, including his sexual exploits.


Most of them said it’s not that they do not believe in those unsavory things BN people said about Anwar, but the overriding objective of getting rid of the BN government necessitate them to overlook all that.


In any debate I had with my Pakatan friends, the best way to silence them was by asking them whether they believe that it was Anwar who was featured in the sex tapes.


” Anwar can screw a donkey for all I care, but BN must be toppled,” said a DAP friend once when I asked that question. And that ended the debate as we then laugh about other funnier things than the mental picture of an old man having sex with a donkey.


I actually believe that Pakatan will be stronger once someone younger and with less baggage such as Azmin Ali takes over the helm of PKR.


The Pakatan coalition actually has a number of capable young leaders from all three component parties of DAP, PKR and Pas.

Perihal Elaun Keraian Kakitangan Kerajaan

ELAUN KERAIAN
BAGI pegawai-pegawai kerajaan gred 43 ke atas, mereka di peruntukkan dengan elaun keraian yang merupakan sebahagian daripada pendapatan mereka. Elaun minima RM400 sebulan di kecualikan daripada cukai pendapatan.

Imbuhan Tetap Keraian yang diberikan kepada pegawai dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan Tertinggi dan pegawai tertentu dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan dan Profesional merupakan elaun yang dibayar atas kadar tetap secara bulanan.

Tujuan pemberian Imbuhan Tetap Keraian adalah sebab jawatan dan tanggung jawab pegawai memerlukan mereka meraikan tetamu bagi mewujudkan suasana ramah mesra. -- FAQ SSM oleh JPA

Namun pada kebiasaannya, Imbuhan Tetap Keraian ini hanya digunakan untuk meraikan diri sendiri ataupun keluarga sendiri sahaja ataupun untuk membayar hutang-hutang peribadi sahaja.

Andai kata ada tetamu yang datang ke pejabat dan mereka di jamu, itu adalah dari perbelanjaan pejabat. Malahan ada pejabat yang membayar makan minum tetamu yang diraikan di hotel/restoran menggunak…

#SIAPA_ARAH_BUNUH_ALTANTUYA?

(By: Ariff Ahmad)
Walaupun Kerajaan Australia telah bersetuju untuk membenar Sirul dibawa pulang ke Malaysia tetapi reaksi Mahathir terhadap isu tersebut adalah seperti dia tidak berminat untuk membenarkan Sirul Azhar pulang ke Malaysia (sila rujuk FAKTA 1).  
Mengapa Mahathir tidak berapa bersetuju dengan cadangan tersebut. Untuk memahaminya, maka kita perlu rujuk kepada sejarah pembelian kapal selam tersebut.
Mengikut siasatan saya, Rancangan untuk membeli kapal selam telah mula dibahas di Parlimen seawal tahun 1993 lagi (sila rujuk pada beberapa SCREENSHOT HANSARD dibawah). Persoalannya ialah, jika Mahathir sebagai Perdana Menteri merangkap Menteri Kewangan berkata dia tidak tahu tentang rancangan hendak membeli KAPAL SELAM, jadi apa yang Mahathir buat semasa isu tersebut dibahas di Parlimen. DIA TIDUR AGAKNYA  
Ini adalah fakta-fakta tentang siapa yang terlibat didalam pembelian kapal selam Scorpene
👉1) Yang mencadangkan pembelian kapal selam ialah
a) Mokhzani Mahathir dan 
b) Ibrahim M…

APA SEBENARNYA TUN MAHATHIR MAHU?

TS Zeti dan Tun Daim telah mengakui ekonomi negara kekal kukuh dan rezab simpanan negara mempunyai rm436 billion, tertinggi dalam sejarah negara!
Terbaru Tun Mahathir telah membuat kenyataan yang mana 1MDB ...penubuhan siasatan diRaja ( RCI ) tidak perlu kerana tiada bukti kukuh untuk disabitkan kesalahan pada Najib.
Kini semuanya sudah nyata dan jelas..100% sebelum ini isu2 tersebut telah di politikkan kerana ada sesuatu yang tersembunyi hanya Najib dan Mahathir sahaja yang mengetahui.
Dulu Mahathir kata Najib dan kerajaan BN perlu ditumbangkan untuk menyelamatkan negara dari MUFLIS  dan juga tak mahu aset2 negara dijual ke negara luar. 
Malah dengan konsisten mengatakan Najib penyamun dan pencuri harta rakyat serta mengayakan keluarga mereka.
Hanya 5 hari sahaja Mahathir dapat kuasa..segalanya sudah terjawab hanya dengan kenyataan Zeti dan Daim sahaja.
Adakah Mahathir jujur dengan perjuangan agama bangsa dan negara?
Dalam sejarah satu permainan politik yang amat kotor...fitnah, pembohongan…
