"Keeping The Rage" on 1MDB: PART 13

NORMALLY, Saturdaes /Sundaes (I knottily refer to my WICKEDend:) for Desi are for RUMInation, and where possible, I write of HAPPY TIMES/THINGS. But today, I'm not in that "happy reflective" mood -- YES, YOU GUESS'D RIGHT! -- Malaysians can NOT be in a possitive mood/mode UNTIL SOMETHING BIG, REALLY BIG, I would think as BIG as the United Kingdom's BREXIT -- earthshattering BIG!

Yesterday I ended my post PART 12 of this running series on 1MDB with a sidely noted observation at my socialist BF corners like the Babu stall or the kopitaim that "...many ordinary Malaysians are praying for divine intervention". This is especially true of my "polytikus kakis" of the Buddhist faith, Christian too. Especially the term "KARMA" crops up in such rresigned acceptance that humanly, we have done all we can to get rid of the present CRUEL REGIME under a CLUELESSWAN of a CEO, now fondly referred by the US Department of Justice and the Atoorney-General as dat "MO1"!.

My response is usually along these lines: " Sdr/i...., Desi is not so patient, By the time that bugger and family are removed from NegaraKu (MalSia), I and You2, may not be around to celebrate. Yes, DIVINE INTERVENTION is only GOoD if NegaraKu does not go bankrupt first, causing MISERY in most Malaysian lives. We are at the ABYSS of a failed state -- an Asian Zimbabwe -- I hope that ending from Above happens sooner than later, God help us.Amen".

Yesterday, I highlighted TWO PARAS with 8Stars, here follows a RELEVANT RECALL:~~~~

TODAY, exactly a year ago, SARAWAK REPORT, via

 reported thus:~~~~~~

ARREST WARRANT FOR THE PRIME MINISTER! - The Real Reason The Attorney General Was Fired - EXCLUSIVE!

ARREST WARRANT FOR THE PRIME MINISTER! - The Real Reason The Attorney General Was Fired - EXCLUSIVE!

Dumped before he could make his move? Gani Patail
Dumped before he could make his move? Gani Patail
Sarawak Report has acquired documents, now verified, which explain exactly why Abdul Gani Patail was dramatically fired on Monday.
The Attorney General was on the brink of bringing charges for corruption against the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
We have acquired the secret draft charge sheet documents, which Gani Patail was in the process of drafting.
They include a charge sheet for corrupt practices under Section 17 (a) of the MACC Act, allowing for punishment of a sentence of up to 20 years in prison under Section 24 of the Act.
In an unprecedented situation the person being charged was none other than the Prime Minister “Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Abdul Razak” along with a company director, Dato’ Shamus Anuar Bin Sulaiman.
The explosive information hits Malaysia in the middle of a highly controversial visit by the  British Prime Minister, who had been widely warned against making such a visit in the midst of Malaysia’ biggest political scandal in decades.
The documents, which were being worked in their final draft stages by the Attorney General, were sent to Sarawak Report following the sacking of Gani Patail and have now been verified by other senior parties.
Arrest Warrant for a Prime Minister!
Arrest Warrant for a Prime Minister!
In English the first of two draft warrants spell out the charges being brought by Malaysia’s most senior law officer (who was unconstitutionally dismissed by the Prime Minister the day after these drafts were printed).
The warrant cites that the Prime Minister and Shamsul Anuar and “another person still at large Nik Ariff Bin Faisla Kamil” on 26th of December 2014 at the AmIslamic Bank, Bangunan Ambank Group in Kuala Lumpur, as an agent of the Malaysian Government, namely the Prime Minister of Malaysia and special advisor of SRC International, did secretly obtain a sum of money amounting to RM27 million that was paid through the company Gandingan Mentari and Ihsan Perdana to “your account at AmPrivate Banking -1MY no 211201101880″ with the principal aim of obtaining a loan from Kumpulan Wang Persaraan pension fund.
“As such you have committed an offence under Section 17(1) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Act of 2009, under which you can be punished according to Section 24 of the Act, to be read with Section 34″.
The punishment cited at the base of the document is imprisonment of not more than 20 years and a fine not less than five times of the value of the bribe taken or RM10,000, whichever is higher.

Raiding Malaysia’s public pension fund KWAP!

The crime referred to has already been widely reported following exposes by Sarawak Report and the Wall Street Journal at the start of this month.
We produced documents from the task force investigation into 1MDB, which showed that its former subsidiary SRC International (whose CEO is Nik Kamil) had made a number of payments into the Prime Minister’s personal accounts totalling millions of ringgit over a period from last December to this February.
The payments went through the companies Gandingan Menteri Sdn Bhd, of whom the Director was Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil (also wanted for questioning) and Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd, whose Director Shamus Anuar is also cited in the warrant.

Criminal Breach of Trust

A second, alternative draft charge was being worked on by the Attorney General, which Sarawak Report has also obtained.
Criminal breech of trust - does not even need a warrant for arrest say experts
Criminal breach of trust – does not even need a warrant for arrest say experts

The second charge relates to the same act on the same day, but refers more specifically to the Prime Minister’s position of trust with regard to the company SRC.  In English it reads:
In the Matter of Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court (Criminal Division)
Arrest Case No…………………………………………………
Draft First Charge
That you together with a person still at large, one Nik Faisal bin Kamil, on the 26.12.2014 at the AmIslamic Bank Bhd, Bangunan Anbank Group, No. 55 Jalan Raja Chulan, in the Federal Teritory of Kuala Lumpur, as agent(s) of the Government of Malaysia to wit the Prime Minister of Malaysia holding the post of Finance Minister as Special Advisor (Ameritus Advisor) to SRC International Sdn Bhd with common intention did corruptly receive a bribe in the sum of RM27 million from SRC International Sdn Bhd which was paid through Gandungan Mentari Sdn Bhd and Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd to your account with AmPrivate Banking – 1MY account No. 2112022011880 as an inducement to do an act or deed connected with the affairs of your principal to wit assisting in obtaining a loan of funds from Kumpulan Wang Persaraan (Incorporated) (KWAP) to SRC International Sdn Bhd. Therefore you have committed an offence under section 17(a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 punishable under section 24 of the said Act read together with section 34 of the Penal Code.
A conviction under section 24 would result in imprisonment up to 20 years and to a fine not less than 5 times the value of the bribe or RM10,000.00 whichever is the greater.
Police HQ Report No: IPJ/Rpt No: 252/2015


A close insider has now confirmed to Sarawak Report that Patail had arrived at his office on Monday morning expecting to finalise the extremely sensitive charges he was preparing against the Prime Minister, resulting from the investigations of the multi-agency task force into 1MDB.
“He was finalising it.  He went to his office and found he could not go in. Ali Bin Hamsa, the Chief Secretary to the Government, was waiting and he told him [the Attorney General, Abdul Gani Patail] that he was dismissed.  He could not even get his papers.”
Within hours of this secret drama at the heart of government, as all Malaysia knows, the Prime Minister had moved to effect what has been described as an attempted coup d’etat.
Fire on the 10th floor of Bukit Aman last night - it is where all the documents on white collar crime are kept.... a coincidence people are asking?
Fire on the 10th floor of Bukit Aman last night – it is where all the documents on white collar crime are kept…. a coincidence people are asking?
The head of Special Branch was removed, the Deputy Prime Minister was dumped and four members of the investigating Parliamentary Accounts Committee were elevated without choice to positions in Cabinet and its work was declared suspended.
Other known cabinet critics of the the 1MDB scandal have also been unceremoniously dismissed by the Prime Minister.
It has been also been announced that tomorrow’s meeting of the UMNO Supreme Council, representing the key leadership of the ruling party, has also been cancelled by the Prime Minister.
Now all Malaysia knows why the Prime Minister has moved to sack the countries top legal officers and top politicians.
In an irony of perfect timing the Prime Minister is now seeking to use the visit of Britain’s David Cameron as an endorsement of his unconstitutional move to hijack the State of Malaysia.
Endorsement by the UK of Malaysia's 'coup d'etat'?
Endorsement by the UK of Malaysia’s ‘coup d’etat’?
Will he get away with it, everyone is asking?

"Keeping the Rage" on 1MDB: PART 12

From my steady blogger matey Down Under who urges, like Desi, that MALAYSIANS MUST CONTINUE TO KEEP THE RAGE on 1MDB! -- YL, Desi

Not only Rosmah’s son (with her first husband), Riza Aziz, couldn’t return to America temporarily while the US DOJ is hot on his tail, some US$1 billion worth of assets – hotels; luxury real estate in Manhattan, Beverly Hills and London; fine art; a private jet and even the highly successful 2013 film “The Wolf of Wall Street” – vaporised into thin air.

JUL28 2016

By pro-Najib bloggers’ admission, everyone including the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was caught off guard with the press conference held by the U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and US Department of Justice, exposing that billions of US dollars were indeed “stolen” from 1MDB – a fund set up and chaired by Najib Razak himself since 2009.

As chaos erupted in the Prime Minister Office, Najib’s advisers were summoned for meetings and brainstorming on the best damage control money can buy. They couldn’t find one because the A.G. Lynch was beyond their control, let alone US DOJ or FBI. Of course, PM Najib was extremely furious, but nothing beats Rosmah Mansor who almost fainted.

Not only Rosmah’s son (with her first husband), Riza Aziz, couldn’t return to America temporarily while the US DOJ is hot on his tail, some US$1 billion worth of assets – hotels; luxury real estate in Manhattan, Beverly Hills and London; fine art; a private jet and even the highly successful 2013 film “The Wolf of Wall Street” – vaporised into thin air.

Sure, those were acquired with allegedly stolen money originated from 1MDB. Still, the “First Family” had put in considerable amount of time and resources into planning what eventually turned out to be the biggest theft of the century. Hey, we should give credit where credit is due (*grin*), right? In haste, the “First Family”, still fabulously mad, decided to take revenge.

Deputy UMNO Youth Leader, Khairul Azwan Harun, was sent to make a local police report against the former Governor of Malaysia’s Central Bank Zeti Akhtar Aziz, former Attorney-General of Malaysia Abdul Gani Patail and the outgoing head of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Abu Kassim Mohamed.

Through the police report, the “First Family” was essentially crying, whining and bitching about the three individuals of providing confidential information to foreign agencies, including the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), without authorisation. The report also insists that the three individuals named were conspiring to topple Najib and the democratically-elected Malaysian government.

The primary issue that is causing pro-Najib bloggers, politicians and supporters beating their chests and screaming until foaming on the mouth is this – the Government of the United States should have first checked with the Government of Malaysia (read: Najib Razak) whether the complaint is legitimate before taking action (of telling all and sundry about Najib’s involvement).

In other words, A.G. Lynch and DOJ should have called the Prime Minister Najib Razak Office and asked – “Hey Mr. Prime Minister, we received stacks of evidence that your stepson Riza Aziz and your friend Jho Low have stolen billions of dollars from 1MDB. Can we confiscate their assets such as the luxury real estate in Manhattan, Beverly Hills and London, fine art, and a private jet?”

Najib’s minions are also complaining that 1MDB wasn’t consulted by the US for information. Well, perhaps they were right. Perhaps the American government should have had contacted Pablo Escobar and asked nicely whether he was a drug dealer before conspiring with the Colombian government to hunt, shoot and kill the Colombian drug lord in 1993.

They’re also accusing Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Abu Kassim Mohamed of secretly contacting the US authorities. In short, Najib Razak, either brilliantly or stupidly, is accusing the United States of a deadly conspiracy to overthrow his government, the same way Turkish President Recep Erdogan accuses the US of the recent failed coup d’état.

More importantly, by launching the police report locally (they never dare to do so overseas, for some strange reason); it actually adds credential to the corruption case – that A.G. Lynch and DOJ were right to seize the billions of dollars allegedly stolen from 1MDB. After all, it’s not everyday you see a country’s top-3 heads of enforcement agencies being accused of conspiracy.

Hey, wait a minute. Attorney General Lynch and DOJ didn’t name Prime Minister Najib Razak as one of the people who had stolen money from 1MDB. They only mentioned Riza Aziz and Jho Low. With the police report, does that mean the Malaysia government now officially admits “Malaysian Official 1” is indeed Najib Razak (*grin*). If not, why bother with the DOJ accusations at all?

********To the United States, it only goes to show that the powerful Najib Razak has everything to hide if former Governor of Malaysia’s Central Bank Zeti Akhtar Aziz, former Attorney-General of Malaysia Abdul Gani Patail and the outgoing head of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Abu Kassim Mohamed are to be arrested, intimidated and persecuted.

Why does Najib administration need to send a junior Deputy UMNO Youth Leader to do the dirty work of harassing retired Zeti and Gani and soon-to-retire-Kassim when they could easily get some American lawyers to defend their casein the United States, if Mr. Najib Razak, Riza Aziz and Jho Low were indeed innocent of money laundering and corruption?

It’s pretty simple. If the Malaysian “First Family” is indeed as clean as a whistle, no amount of information and documents could be used to overthrow them. If there was a simple explanation on how Riza Aziz and Jho Low could become billionaire overnight, there’s no reason and justification for the Government of the United States to target PM Najib Razak or his family members.

Relax Najib, Here’s Why The Mighty U.S. Dares Not Shame Or Arrest You

JUL22 2016

Najib Razak is in an awkward position. What this means is the Malaysian prime minister is like Chua Soi Lek, the former President of MCA (Malaysian Chinese Association) who was forced to admit and subsequently resign after his sensational sex DVD scandal. Unlike Mr. Chua, however, Mr. Najib is a man who knew no shame.

Nope, Mr. Najib wasn’t caught with his pants down bonking another woman; although he was allegedly did so in a Port Dickson hotel room with singer and actress Ziana Zain when he was then Malaysian Defence Minister. But his 1MDB and RM2.6 billion scandals brought so much shame to the country that Chua Soi Lek looks like Hugh Hefner instead.

Mr. Najib is in an awkward position because whenever he meets foreign leaders, he can’t help but notice a smirk on their face. True, he knew no shame but that doesn’t mean he has no dignity. Unlike North Korean Kim Jong-un orZimbabwean Robert Mugabe, Najib takes very personal on how world leaders think of him. After all, Malaysia is still a democracy country.

When U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch announced on Wednesday (July 20, 2016) that the Justice Department filed lawsuits to seize assets that it said were the result of US$3.5 billion that was misappropriated from 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Bhd), a fund set up by Najib Razak himself in 2009, the Malaysian prime minister almost fell off his chair.

The son of Razak had been given the impressions by his No.1 bootlicker – Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak – and his band of supposedly top-brain advisers that FBI would drag their feet in the 1MDB investigation. That explains why Mr. Salleh suddenly made a spectacular U-turnand dismissed his “usual” claims of an international conspiracy against Malaysia.

Prior to the unexpected announcement by the U.S. prosecutor, Mr. Salleh has been consistently rubbished allegations by the Wall Street Journal, Sarawak Report and every private-owned media about his boss Najib’s involvement in the embarrassing but damaging twin scandals – calling them international conspiracy against the country.

Salleh took it that because President Barack Obama had golfed with PM Najib Razak, diplomatic calls were exchanged between both leaders for the investigation to be dropped, or at least halted. After all, A.G. Lynch was handpicked by Obama and had, together with FBI, carried out the president’s errands such as the recent cover-up for Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

Unfortunately, Najib’s 1MDB was too explosive and massive to be covered up by Obama administration. Coincidently, Attorney General Lynch openly declared – “The Department of Justice will not allow the American financial system to be used as a conduit for corruption,” – just a day after Donald Trump officially became the Republican Party’s presidential nominees.

The fact is, Barack Obama is struggling to ensure Hillary Clinton successfully become the first woman president, and continue Democrats’ agenda. The last thing they want is for Trump to make bombastic allegations that Obama and Lynch deliberately cover-up Najib’s corruption, and Hillary would continue such practice if voted to the White House.

To cover-up Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is one thing. But to cover-up Najib Razak’s 1MDB scandal, involving a whopping US$3.5 billion allegedly diverted from 1MDB funds, is another “very damaging” thing. 1MDB’s scandal is so hugethat it creates a new record as the U.S. largest single action ever brought under the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative.

Make no mistake about the exciting announcement from the U.S. Department of Justice. President Obama and A.G. Lynch weren’t interested in shaming PM Najib Razak, let alone prosecute him. If one looks hard enough, Lynch was merely acting based on “complaints”, and the Justice Department was merely talking about “recovering” money.

The lawsuit doesn’t name Mr. Najib and no charges were brought against him, although there are 32 references in the complaint to “Malaysian Official 1″, a description that fits no one else but Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak himself. The 130-pages lawsuit, however, would be damaging to Riza Aziz (Najib’s stepson) and Jho Low (confidant of Najib).

The way this case is going to develop is pretty predictable. There’s no way Najib would allow his stepson to be charged, let alone spend some time in prison. That would break self-proclaimed First Lady Rosmah Mansor’s heart – badly. Mr. Jho Low and Khadem Al-Qubaisi would be the fall guys who would gladly admit they had willingly given US$238 million to Riza as “gift money”.

The drama requires Riza Aziz to be innocent, so that Najib Razak can be as clean as a whistle. One should take note that NO criminal charges were filed by the Justice Department. Therefore, nobody would go to jail. What the Obama administration can do to scratch Najib’s back is to put up a drama – a lawsuit to “recover” the illicit money, not sending people to prison.

As we had mentioned, if the United States wanted to put Najib on trial, there’s no escape for the son of Razak. It’s rare but the U.S. government simply needs to deny PM Najib Razak an A-1 (diplomatic) Visa as head of state. Without this visa, Najib doesn’t enjoy diplomatic immunity anymore. However, only President Obama can exercise his authority to deny the visa to Najib.

The simple fact that the U.S. Justice Department wasn’t interested in criminal charges despite overwhelming evidence that Najib and his gang have insulted and raped the American financial system proves that Obama and Lynch are willing to close one eye. Now, do you understand why Minister Salleh Said Keruak’s made a humiliating U-turn?

If Salleh had sung the same old song like a broken record that the latest U.S. Justice of Department’s move was an international conspiracy against Malaysia, essentially he would be starting a provocation against the Government of the United States. Being challenged, all pro-conservative American news media would pick up the news and Obama would be forced to retaliate “seriously”.

Even if Obama wanted to, of which he doesn’t, the U.S. cannot afford to start a confrontation with his so-called moderate Muslim Malaysia, who is supposed to help America in the fight against the terrorism. With former de-facto opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim in jail and the opposition in disarray, the U.S. simply hasno candidate for a regime change.

For that reason alone, PM Najib Razak is safe because the United States dares not shame him, let alone arrest or prosecute him. To the U.S., Malaysian Najib Razak is no Panamanian Manuel Noriega or Iraqi Saddam Hussein. Najib is just a super corrupt leader, something which both U.S. Democrats and Republicanssubscribe, endorse and embrace.

But do you know what the funniest thing about this U.S. lawsuit is? Ultimately the billions of dollars of looted assets to be seized by the U.S. government will be returned to the country affected – Malaysia. Unless PM Najib resigns, which is highly unlikely, he’s actually getting back all the money he had allegedly laundered to his stepson Riza Aziz in the first place!

Teresa Teng: The Moon Represents MY HEart!

Normally, Desi ruminates on the weekend (OFTEN I SAY the wickedend, Cos I ask my friends who want to treat me to do son only on Sat/Sun as I can become a Kapitalist, not the Socialist on weAkdays:) -- but I make an exception today, a GOoD Thursdae so that we Malaysians can escape the daily RAGE within our heARTS reading about the greatest SCANDAL besienging NEGARAKU that we all love.

With Teresa Teng's international reputation with her love songs conquering hearts w.w.w. -- including TWO Malaysian MALAYS who went to Beijing singing this song to win an international singing CONtest....); so let's calm our heart, mind and soul to ENJOY the soothing voice of :-------


The Moon Represents My Heart

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Moon Represents My Heart" (Chinese: 月亮代表我的心; pinyin: Yuèliàng Dàibiǎo Wǒ de Xīn) is a Mandarin song. It was made famous by Teresa Teng.



The lyrics to the song were written by Sun Yi (孫儀)[1][2] and the music was composed by Weng Ching-hsi (翁清溪).[3] It was first sung by Chen Fen-lan (陳芬蘭) in around 1972 or 1973[3][4] but was made famous by Teresa Teng's version later in the 1970s.[5][6] Teng's rendition, which is three minutes and 29 seconds long,[7] was described as a "love song with a waltz-like lilt".[8]

Cultural impact in China

Until the late 1970s, foreign music had not been allowed into mainland China for several decades.[2] "The Moon Represents My Heart" became one of the first popular foreign songs (called "gangtai" songs) in the country under the new Open Door Policy.[2]
A short clip of "The Moon Represents My Heart" by Teresa Teng.

Problems playing this file? See media help.
Teng's songs over the following decade revolutionized music in China. Her singing, described as "soft, sweet, often whispery and restrained," was considered the "ideal" in gangtai music at that time.[2] The style was in striking contrast to the then officially-sanctioned songs in mainland China which were often revolutionary songs, and made a strong impact on its listeners.[2] She became so popular that "within months the country was literally flooded with [her] songs."[2] "The Moon Represents My Heart," however, is often cited as one of her best-known or most popular pieces.[9][10][11][12]
Before Teng's music arrived, love songs were nonexistent in China.[2] As film director Jia Zhangke later said, "'The Moon Represents My Heart' [was] something completely new. So people of my generation were suddenly infected with this very personal, individual world. Before that, everything was collective..."[13]


Teng died of an asthma attack in 1995,[13] but "The Moon Represents My Heart" has been performed frequently in Asia into the 21st century, including in places like Malaysia,[14][15][6] Singapore,[16] and Taiwan[17][18]—even at political functions.[19] It has been covered by several famous singers, including Shila Amzah, Faye Wong, David Tao, Andy Lau, Leslie Cheung, Jon Bon Jovi[20][21] and Hong Kong a cappella group, Metro Vocal Group. The song is considered a "classic,"[17] and according to one source, "Chinese all around the world are familiar with [it]."[22]
"The Moon Represents My Heart" is also popular in karaoke,[8] with one chain in Singapore listing it at #42 on their hits list (which made it the highest ranked of all Teng's songs).[23] According to The New York Times, it is one of the best-known Chinese pop songs of all time.[24]

Copyright status

Lyricist Sun Yi filed a lawsuit against the Li Ge Record Company (麗歌唱片公司). Sun lost the lawsuit, so the company owns the copyright of this song.[1]

    Teresa Teng, famed in Asia for Love Songs, passed away 20 years ago in Chiang Mai, Thailand when she was only 42 years old. She recorded songs not only in her native Mandarin but also in Taiwanese Hokkien, Cantonese, Japanese, Indonesian and English. Teng’s singing style conveyed simplicity and sincerity. Yeh Yueh-Yu, a professor of Cultural Theory at the University of Southern California said, “It was the sweetness in her voice that made her famous. She had a perfect voice for folk songs and ballads, and she added traditional folk song style into Western-style compositions.” Her voice was also described as being “like weeping and pleading, but with strength, capable of drawing in and hypnotizing listeners.” Songwriter Tsuo Hung-yun said Teng’s voice was “70% sweetness and 30% tears.”

    Vanatsaya Viseskul 朗嘎拉姆, a 16 years old girl from Thailand appeared in a famous reality talent show – “The Voice of China” in Beijing wowed four judges and the audiences for her similar voice and appearance to Teng. Vanatsaya Viseskul, not knowing any Mandarin, started to sing Teng’s songs when she was seven. She told the judges at the “Voice of China” that she could sing after listening Teng’s songs only two to three times.  She learned 25 Teng’s songs in one disc just in three months.  In one of her interviews, she said she had a special feeling toward Teng whom she never met when she first listened to her song. She told her parents that she wanted to learn Mandarin and visit Taiwan where Teng was born one day. After the show, close to half a million fans is following her at Weibo (Twitter in China) and she is now preparing the final contest stage at “The Voice of China” Season 4. No matter whether you believe in reincarnation or not, one thing you cannot deny is that she sings pretty well. Besides, her determination of achieving her dream to become a singer in a foreign country is praiseworthy.

    Najib has cut off not their testicles but something more valuable to a human being: he has removed their self-esteem and dignity; and by putting fear in them, they oblige and kiss his hands and promise to be loyal to him for ever and ever.

    Eunuchs with testicles
    By Zaid Ibrahim.
    In the days of emperors who ruled over vast empires, servants whose testicles had been cut off were employed by these emperors as their palace guards.

    The emperors required men they could trust implicitly to take care of their concubines and mistresses—some emperors had more than a thousand wives.

    The emperors could not trust “normal” men to keep their mistresses “chaste” and not go looking for pleasure with the palace guards, so a generation of eunuchs—males who were rendered incapable of sexual acts by mutilation and castration—grew to serve the emperors’ special needs.

    The castration was done early and because eunuchs were employed in the inner palace areas, they had the proximity and opportunity to mingle with the emperor, his concubines and key palace advisors.

    The eunuchs then used these opportunities to influence the emperor and advisors on policy matters and would regularly interfere in affairs of state. This is one of the reasons why eunuchs held important positions in the empire, not to mention acquiring vast wealth and power.

    I have to explain this for you to be able to explain to others (especially foreigners) why Datuk Seri Najib Razak is still all-powerful.

    Najib, the great emperor of the 21st century, has done what others can only dream of doing, which is to be the wealthiest Prime Minister in the history of the Malaysia and perhaps even the world.

    Najib has survived months of bad publicity in the global media and despite the recent actions of the US Department of Justice (which has detailed his modus operandi to rip off the country of more than USD3.5 billion), Najib still commands a lot of support from his Cabinet colleagues, his party, the civil service, the Police, journalists in the mainstream media and the bloggers, not to mention the judiciary and Members of Parliament.

    How does one explain this phenomenon?

    We cannot blame it entirely on a weakened and disorganised Opposition. It’s also unfair to expect ordinary Malaysians to feel sufficiently “outraged” to march on the streets seeking Najib’s removal when many of them are just getting by selling nasi lemak or working as manual labourers.

    Life for most Malaysians is hard. Finding food and enough extra cash for the tolls must remain a priority instead of being involved in political agitation.

    The real reason why Najib remains Prime Minister despite what has happened is his success at creating a long line of eunuchs to serve him. These eunuchs are different from the eunuchs of the Middle Kingdom in only one respect—their testicles are intact—but in everything else they share the same characteristics.

    Najib has cut off not their testicles but something more valuable to a human being: he has removed their self-esteem and dignity; and by putting fear in them, they oblige and kiss his hands and promise to be loyal to him for ever and ever.

    They will do anything and everything for him: they fear him, and feel they are nothing without his grace and blessing. Their collective defence of their “Emperor” gives them a sense of belonging—and they are well-rewarded for their zeal.

    But the eunuchs of today need millions to sate their appetite and some even get titles normally reserved for those few whose service to the nation has been exceptional and long.
    These eunuchs do not serve the Government or the country. They see no distinction in (nor do they understand) the modern concept of separation between the head of government and the country. They see no difference between truth and lies.

    They see no need for the head of government to be accountable to anyone, since the interest of the Emperor is synonymous with that of the state, like Louis XIV of France. As such, laws are necessary but do not apply to the Emperor if he is disadvantaged or adversely affected by their application.

    Our modern eunuchs are ever-willing to die for their Emperor, so it is nothing for them to lie, spin half-truths and behave as if the whole world is made up of fools.

    The question is, what about us? Do we care enough about the country and do we feel sufficiently strong to stand up to these eunuchs without fear? If we do, then there is hope, but the sooner we act, the better.

    Fire destroyed London 350 years ago, but the city was rebuilt by the great effort of the British people. Our country too has been destroyed, not by fire but by castration. I just hope the Malaysian people can rise to rebuild the country once again.

    The Universe is aswirl with news of serially lying, misappropriating, defrauding, plundering and looting PM Najib's global record swindle of 1MDB's $46 billion debt and RM30 billion hole in its balance sheet. Not to mention him being linked to two murders - Altantuya (CLICK HERE AND HERE) and Hussein Najadi. But let us not be totally distracted by that and lose track of the unaccounted for RM28 billion debt racked up by another "project initiative" by Najib doubling up as Finance Minister, at the Ministry of Finance (MoF). Najib's comrade in arm is also there, namely, Secretary G... more »

    Finally, serially lying, defrauding, looting, plundering and international money-laundering Malaysian Prime Minister Najib, has been nailed right between his eyes. As far back as in early 2013, I had written that the financial affairs of 1MDB stank to high heaven, and that it had fraud and fake and dummy corporations written all over it. At that time, 1MDB's loan exposure was RM20 billion, which has now blown to over RM50 billion. CLICK HERE. I had also said later that it is obvious to those who understand a bit of finance and accounts, that this rape of 1MDB and the related RM30 b... more »
