Mohd Radzhi Salleh betrayed PKR

Have a good look at this photo of Mohd. Radzhi Salleh, Lunas state assemblyman and former PKR member but now declared himself an independent while supporting the Federal Government of Najib:

Note that he never gave any substantive reasons for leaving PKR, only giving a vague statement he is not happy with the PRK leadership without giving actual reasons or justifications.

Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise. Pakatan Rakyat had problems getting quality candidates to stand for election last March and are now paying for it. Read about those difficulties by Nat, a PKR member who should be in the know at Radzhi: The BN bloodthirsty crossover onslaught continues.

However, all these betrayal by such unsuitable candidates is bringing a cleansing to Pakatan Rakyat, particularly PKR and I am sure when the next General Election comes, Pakatan Rakyat will be cleansed of all weak and unsuitable candidates.

BN caught red-handed: Election Commission closed down Welfare Ministry event

Are we finally seeing some semblance of independence and fair play from the Malaysian Election Commission. All along, the Malaysian Election Commission had been seen as closing both eyes to wrongdoings by the UMNO/BN breaching the election rules.

PKR had complained that BN had abused government machineries for election purposes at the Barisan Nasional ceramah at Sama Gagah village where Deputy Information, Communications and Culture Minister Heang Siak Kee was giving a speech plus there was a Welfare Department bus with the department logo was parked plus BN flags, buntings and other materials. There was even the words "Please vote BN" written in Chinese characters on the stage. Sim Tze Tzin, Pantai Jerajak state representative also claimed that Heang Siak Kee had told participants that those above 60 years of age can claim RM200 from the organizers.

This time a surprise enforcement team led by Election Commission officer Sulaiman Abdullah raided the function and ordered it closed. Minister Heang Siak Kee shamefacedly had to stop her speech half-way and sneak away with shame.

Let us hope that this is the start of a new beginning for the previously highly tainted Election Commission. There is still one outstanding issue sticking up like a sore thumb - Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin use of an Armed Force helicopter on UMNO business. That is corruption and abuse of power.

Khir Toyo denies allegation; MACC Selangor Deputy Director on leave

by Chen Shaua Fui, Merdeka Review

The Deputy Director of the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission or MACC (Suruhanjaya Pencegah Rasuah atau SPRM), Hishamuddin Hashim whose name was mentioned in the mystery letter that was broadcasted yesterday, have taken emergency leave today.

Reporters from Merdeka Review tried to interview him regarding the allegation in a "mystery letter" that was exposed in "Malaysia Today", in his office. However, the office staff informed them that Hishamuddin has take leave and will not be coming in to office today.

The reporters thus failed to get his response regarding the allegation that was thrown at him as was broadcasted in that letter.

Meanwhile, former Selangor Chief Minister, Khir Toyo who was implicated in a "plot to bring down the Pakatan Rakyat Selangor government" in the "mystery letter" yesterday, denied all the allegations in his blog.

Khir Toyo who is currently in Mecca, claimed that all the allegations in the "mystery letter" are defamation and slander, and declared that he will make a police report when he return to Malaysia.

I wish I have the capability of writing stuff with this post title as the real author of MUHYIDDIN DESPERATELY WANTS TO GO TO HEAVEN is none other than RPK (Raja Petra Kamaruddin) of Malaysia Today. He seem to have phenomenal memory of the past plus very credible sources of information that we lesser mortals do not have. You should go to MUHYIDDIN DESPERATELY WANTS TO GO TO HEAVEN to read what RPK has to reveal about our Deputy Prime Minister.

Muhyiddin Yassin: please read Citizen Nades report

Muhyiddin Yassin is both Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister, a very crucial post that can impact seriously on the future of our young ones as well as the future of Malaysia. Right now the Malaysian education system is very unhealthy with incompetent teachers. Muhyiddin so far had failed to impress as the second highest leader of our country with his series of nonsensical statements. Let us hope he reads about what R. Nadeswarn (Citizen Nades) wrote in the Sun recently: Teaching children to fail

Someone sent Nadeswaran a brown envelope containing a note with the header: Jabatan Pelajaran Negeri Selangor: Program Peningkatan Prestasi UPSR (Selangor Education Department: UPSR Performance Enhancement Programme). It was a mathematics test preparatory paper for Standard Six pupils who would be sitting for the exam next month. Apparently, of the 40 questions, there were 33 grammatical mistakes, that is, a horrible 75%.

Muhyiddin Yassin, please surf over to the Sun and read for yourself the depth to which our Malaysian education system has plunged with half past six teachers who cannot even write a decent sentence without grammatical error

BN's Permatang Pasir candidate Rohaizat Othman offence personal

The Permatang Pasir Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate Rohaizat Othman, a lawyer, was struck off the Malaysian Bar for a personal offence, according to Bar Council president Ragunath Kesavan which was reported at The Edge (Rohaizat's offence a personal misconduct, Ragunath says). The offence is related to stakeholders' money from Koperasi Pekebun Getah for which Ragunath says there was no account.

Ragunath: "The offence was for personal liability and does not involve any other persons as Rohaizat was named by the complainant, and not his partner. Rohaizat was disbarred on March 7 last year and he appealed against the Bar Council decision to the High Court, which also dismissed his appeal on Aug 12 this year. When the board looked into this matter and the order was made, there was no reimbursement to the stakeholders involving the sum of RM140,000. Even if you pay, the offence has been committed and it is a serious offence as this involves dealing with client's money. If you are an innocent party, you would not be found guilty by the disciplinary committee and the charge leveled under Section 103D is tantamount to criminal misconduct."

Voters in Permatang Pasir when they go to the polling station to cast their votes in this "buy election" should take this into consideration and hopefully will cast their votes for the PAS/Pakatan Rakyat candidate Mohd Salleh Man.

Protest song - it isn't nice

The song "It isn't nice" was one of the songs sung in the 1960s by civil rights marchers in the US, without whom Obama would not be able to even sit with the whites in a bus, let alone reside in the White House. The words and music was composed by Malvina Reynolds and was copyrighted in 1964 by Schroder Music Company, and was renewed in 1993. The Japanese version is banned in Japan. Here is part of the lyrics (for the full lyrics, refer to Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems:

It isnt nice to block the doorway
It isnt nice to go to jail
There are nicer ways to do it
But the nice ways have all failed
It isnt nice; it isnt nice
Youve told us once, youve told us twice
But if thats freedoms price
We dont mind ...

"It isn't nice" sung by Heather Lev:

Beginning Anti-ISA rally Masjid Jamek

Here is a video recording the beginning of the 1 August Anti-ISA rally starting from Masjid Jamek:

Go to Anti-ISA Rally 1st August for more photos and report.

Anti-ISA Rally August 1

The Anti-ISA (Internal Security Act) Rally is scheduled to begin at 2pm. From experience at the 9-11 BERSIH Rally where the Pasar Seni and Masjid Jamek LRT stations were locked down and trains forced to bypass the stations, today I chose to take the LRT to Pasar Seni early and reached there around 11am. As I headed towards the escalator, I already spotted 2 police armed with pistols.

There was a Police lockup truck parked next to Pasar Seni which was already filled with arrestees. Sigh! They have already started arresting at such an early stage. Also spotted were 2 police with Alsatian dogs patrolling the car park.

Police were milling around and I spotted a few traffic police (white uniform) mixing with the regular police (dark blue uniform). Let's hope the rally will be allowed to proceed with police directing traffic rather than to interfere with the rally:

From Pasar Seni, I walked over to Masjid Jamek. The time was 11.45am and already there was a crowd. A helicopter was buzzing overhead:

Not much seemed to be happening here. I spotted a Malaysiakini reporter cameraman chatting with 2 foreigners, explaining what all the fuss was about. :

Parked nearby next to Masjid Jamek was another police lockup truck (Black Maria):

The police seemed very trigger-happy apparently arresting at will. Here are some photos of those arrested, among which was 2 women with black tudung and veil:
