Will There Be D-Day For Selangor And Pakatan?

Hantu Laut

 As I have said in my recent post "Khalid Samad Outrage, Is the Royal Institution Under Threat?" there  seemed to be immense fear among Pakatan leaders that the Sultan may agree to a dissolution of the state assembly to resolve the Selangor impasse.

The regularly-cited constitutional expert Prof Dr Abdul Aziz Bari is a partisan pro-Pakatan supporter. Almost all of his prognoses in the past had been approbation of Pakatan Rakyat and antagonism of the ruling party.  Story here.

A question I would like to ask our learned professor how he arrived at his own logic that Khalid is a caretaker menteri besar? As far as the constitution is concerned a government only become a caretaker  after dissolution of the assembly and until such time the same or new government is installed, in most cases after completion of polling and the winner with a clear majority is established. In Khalid's case his government is still a going concern as there was no dissolution of the assembly yet.

For all intents and purposes Khalid Ibrahim is still the legitimate menteri besar accorded him under the Selangor constitution until such time a vote of no confidence is brought against him in the legislative assembly, or substantive evidence is presented to the Sultan that Khalid had lost majority support of members of the assembly. Until then Khalid is not a caretaker menteri besar. 

If he so wish, the Sultan can demand all 56 of the assemblymen to be present in front of him for him to determine the lost of confidence in Khalid Ibrahim, or the Sultan can ignore all that and allow dissolution of the assembly.

These Pakatan folks are one of a kind, they can without a flicker of guilt, right what is wrong and wrong what is right.

Remember the Perak debacle? How they wanted a snap poll after they lost the government to BN. How they ridiculed and harassed the Sultan of Perak and brought him into public odium and contempt.

The whole episode started when Pakatan inticed BN Nasaruddin Hashim to crossover to Pakatan. Even though they had formed the government in Perak, they were foolish enough to go on a wild hunt to steal BN assemblyman. 

Anwar, as always, the lousy chess player was outwitted by the wily foxes in BN, who not only succeeded in getting Nasaruddin back to BN, but brought along with him three Pakatan assemblymen. The departure of the three caused the collapse of the Pakatan government in Perak. 

Obviously, the Perak's mess had not taught Anwar a lesson. 

What the Sultan and majority of Malaysians know of Khalid's ouster and lost of confidence had been through the media, pro-Pakatan news portals blogs and directly from the Pakatan secretariat. The Sultan have not had an audience with Pakatan leaders yet to determine Khalid's fate.

Some Pakatan leaders and pro-Pakatan news portal/blogs are already having a field day pouring scorn on the Sultan even before he decides on the issue.

Initially,  PAS sided with Khalid and refused to accept Wan Azizah as replacement for Khalid, but after being lampooned by PKR and DAP,  bowed to the wishes of Anwar, PKR and DAP to put only Anwar's wife as  sole candidate for menteri besar, hoping to corner the Sultan into submission, leaving him no choice but to accept Wan Azizah. 

Article 53 (2) a..... gives the Sultan absolute and unfettered power to decide according to his judgement.The Sultan may or may not accept Wan Azizah.
Would Anwar accept if the Sultan rejected his wife and asked for new names to be submitted to him, or would he organise a street's party to seek justice?

Will there be dissolution day for Selangor and Pakatan?

Khalid Samad Outrage, Is the Royal Institution Under Threat?

Hantu Laut

I am surprise that Khalid Samad had taken the bull by its horn to ridicule the constitutional power of the Sultan of Selangor by using netizen's comments as a barometer to gauge the people's hostility toward the Sultan's absolute power,  a lie concocted to confuse the people, the Sultan has no absolute (mutlak) power. Story here.

As a lawmaker Khalid Samad should know better that the Sultan of Selangor and for that matter all the sultans in this country do not have absolute power. They only have constitutional power accorded to them under the constitution of their respective state.

I produce below the relevant section of the Selangor state constitution of the Sultan's power in the appointment of menteri besar:

I suppose the whole of the Pakatan gang is now worried that they may have to face the truth that the Sultan has the power given under Article 53 (2) a to ask for dissolution of the Assembly if it's in his judgement that Wan Azizah is not likely to enjoy majority support of the house. 

You can produce 40 signatures to show majority support for Wan Azizah, but it would still be up to the Sultan to accept or not to accept the majority resolution if he has any reasonable doubt.

This is the first time a Malay lawmaker had openly ridiculed the power of the sultan and used a rather stupid measure of netizen comments as opinion poll to justify his reproach of the Sultan even before the Sultan had acted on the matter.

For Khalid Samad information all comments that appeared in pro-Pakatan news portal such as Malaysian Insider, Malaysian Chronicle, Free Malaysia Today and so forth are filtered to allow only pro-Pakatan voices to get through and any adverse or anti-Pakatan comments are deleted on the spot.How he used it as a kind of opinion poll is difficult to understand.

Looking at the chain of events in Selangor and the angst against the Sultan will the monarchy system be under threat should Pakatan Rakyat come to power at the Federal level?

Unlikely, but with the rumbles of discontent one wouldn't know what the future beholds.

Shameful! Hadi Awang Should Resign Or Take PAS Out Of Pakatan!

Hantu Laut

Panas-panas tahi ayam! is a Malay idiom, which literally means as hot as the chicken shit that fizzles out very fast.

PAS President Hadi Awang has lost his mojo, the party decision sabotaged and reversed!

Read more below:

I really don't care whatever happened to Khalid, it's water under the bridge, that's no more the issue.

The pertinent question now is, can PAS be trusted ?

A man is only good as his word. PAS is now the biggest laughing stock for the entire world to see.

If Hadi Awang had any more self-respect left in him, he should resign as president, or take PAS out of Pakatan.

Tony Pua: Khalid Ibrahim Extremely Honest And Hardworking Menteri Besar

Hantu Laut

The speech was made by Tony Pua on 5 Feb 2014 praising MB Khalid Ibrahim as being an honest and hardworking menteri besar.

Within a matter of months Khalid Ibrahim has turned from honest-to-goodness Mr Clean to a devious double-dealing Mr Crooked.

Mr Pua, what happened to your outstanding ovation for Khalid Ibrahim?

Poor guy, someone must have squeezed his balls to toe the party line .

Would DAP And PKR Dare To Kick PAS Out of Pakatan Rakyat?

Hantu Laut

I frankly think PAS should part ways with DAP and PKR as they have no common ground, it was a marriage made in hell, of irreconcilable differences and of one feeling loftier than the other. 

Both DAP and PKR consider PAS a kampong party run by country bumpkins and dependent on DAP and PKR for its enhanced political performance. Otherwise, parochial PAS would be confined to Kelantan.

An insult PAS had swallowed all this while and taking it in its stride so far.

It's puzzling that with the constant bickering, mistrust and distrust among the partners the  politicians in DAP and PKR still want to stay together with the hudud wielding PAS.

The Khalid Ibrahim debacle may be the straw that will break the camel back and it looks like DAP and PKR are more afraid of losing PAS than the other way round.

Desperation has turned to more insults being thrown at PAS to decide quickly its stand on the issue

I am against hudud law and strongly feel that PAS mixing religion with running of a nation is not healthy for this multiracial and multi religious country.

PKR and DAP should stay in PR and work harder to challenge the BN in the next GE (General Election) and leave PAS to its own device.

A pick from a news portal on the Selangor impasse.

It almost seemed as if Hadi had forgotten that his party had shared the trenches with DAP and PKR in two wars – GE12 and GE13 – and had won significant battles along the way.
Also, for someone whose party under-delivered in GE13, whose refusal to change the menteri besar in Kedah caused the fall of the state to BN and who needed a chunk of non-Malay votes to win a chunk of parliamentary seats in the peninsula and state seats in Selangor, he was cocky and dismissive of the importance of PR to PAS.

Anwar Screw-Up Big Time, Is Fresh Elections In The Offing?

Hantu Laut

Is fresh election in the offing for Selangor?

Anwar Ibrahim has cut his nose to spite his face and had thrown Selangor into political turmoil that may see PR (Pakatan Rakyat) road to Putrajaya going up in smoke.

This man whom I have rejected as a leader since his days in UMNO has shown vacuousness of his highly questionable power grab that backfiring not only on himself but on the whole Pakatan Rakyat, which may see the demise of the three-party coalition.

Every step taken by Anwar and PKR against Khalid Ibrahim has been in the wrong direction. 

Anwar demanded that Khalid resigned to pave way for his wife to take over the MB position as Khalid was appointed by Pakatan Rakyat. For those with moral principle, this is nepotism of the highest order. Are there not enough qualified candidates in the PKR elected representatives line-up to become MB? 

Why his wife? 

Why not the wolfish Azmin Ali, who had been played out twice of the MB post by him.A promise he made to Azmin, but couldn't deliver because the other two partners PAS and DAP were not comfortable with Azmin.

We can rule out Azmin due to his unacceptability, which leaves PKR with 12 more choices. Are the Muslims among the 12 all dumb? If it's true no one in PKR is capable other than his wife why not pick someone from PAS to replace Khalid, as the MB post rightfully belong to PAS, which they sacrificed to PKR for peace sake.

This is where stupidity reigned over sensibility, Anwar caught with his pants down as exposed by his little boy wonder Rafizi Ramli that PAS was never consulted on the "Kajang Move" as PAS is not likely to agree. What's the point of a coalition if you don't trust your partner and do things on the sly?

Like morning dreams come true, PAS dissented saying Khalid has not done anything wrong to justify his removal. 

Anwar claimed that Khalid was appointed by PR, therefore, must abide by the decision, again this conniving otter made another big mistake.

Was there unanimous decision? 

It is now clear there wasn't any consensus at all. The God-fearing leaders in PAS have no time for Anwar's greed and connivance. PAS has also identified who are the moles in PAS, planted by Anwar to help further his ambition to become PM (Prime Minister) of this country, by hook or by crook.

By what transpired lately, PAS appears to have gotten fed up with the constant bullying by PKR and DAP and is prepared to leave the coalition if Anwar proceeded with the removal of Khalid and replaced with his wife.

PAS has no objection to other names, but Anwar appears not keen and insistent in putting his wife.

PKR has stripped Khalid of his membership making him an MB without a party and PAS showing its displeasure with Anwar by inviting Khalid to join PAS.

PAS has thrown a spanner in the works and not likely to change its stance.

With Khalid out, PKR is now left with 13 ADUNs and if Khalid join PAS the likelihood of PAS demanding the MB to come from PAS is highly probable.

Khalid may go for broke. A dissolution of the assembly and fresh elections is even of higher probability.

I have said many times before that this coalition of strange bedfellows will one day disintegrate because they have nothing in common other than dreaming of taking over Putrajaya, which will also end up in chaos as PAS is not comfortable with Anwar as PM as revealed by little boy wonder Rafizi Ramli, the so-called architect of the "Kajang Move". 

As they say "never send a boy to do a man's job"  

Anwar has stripped himself naked of his true colours. This is his biggest blunder. I expect many of his faithful supporters would have seen through the smoke screen and will shy away from him.

Anwar will soon be a liability to Pakatan Rakyat.

Khalid Ibrahim will eventually have to go, but not before he inflicts more serious damage on Anwar's reputation. 

There is a Chinese idioms that says "greed over small gains brings big losses"

Anwar screw-up big time.

Anwar Ibrahim A Bad Chess Player, Checkmated By Khalid.

Hantu Laut

Anwar Ibrahim is a poor chess player compared to Khalid Ibrahim, who checkmated him of his insatiable desire to kick out Khalid and make his wife Wan Azizah as the Menteri Besar of Selangor. 

Strange as it may sound, PKR had also issued Khalid with a show cause letter, which stated among other things the following.

The letter dated 5 August 2014 sates that Khalid had, by way of a press statement on 22 July 2014, defied the decision of the Majlis Pimpinan Pusat (Central Leadership Committee) to put forward Dr Wan Azizah as the MB (Menteri Besar) of Selangor.

What's the point of a show cause letter from the party when the MB position comes under the purview of the state legislative assembly and only members of the the house with consent of the Sultan can remove Khalid as MB.

Even if PKR sack Khalid from the party, but he still enjoys majority support of the house, he can still legally continue as MB.

A simple majority can oust Khalid. The house has 56 seats, Pakatan needs minimum of 28 ayes have it, to remove Khalid. PAS with 15 seats in the assembly refused to give assent to the removal of Khalid to be replaced by Anwar's wife Wan Azizah. PAS leaders are convinced Khalid has done nothing wrong and see Anwar's desire to put his wife as the MB an immoral act.

It is obvious Anwar can't get enough lawmakers to support him in a vote of no confidence against Khalid and is now resorting to dirty Nazi type tactic of hounding Khalid by disseminating false propaganda and spurious character assassination about Khalid's wrongdoings to mislead the Selangor people.

Looks like little boy wonder Rafizi Ramli's "Kajang Move" has turned sour and has turned docile Khalid into a badass. Little boy wonder thinks Khalid can be bullied into submission. How wrong can he and Anwar be!

Khalid stood firm because he has enough lawmakers behind him in the event of a showdown and also hold the trump card in the event of anticipated foul-up in the house, last resort...... a dissolution.

I hope PAS stood steadfastly against the onslaught of bullying from PKR and DAP and stood by their principle.

Khalid has made a good menteri besar and no reason to replace him.

Anwar is a dangerous man and should never be allowed to always have his ways.

Iraqi Christians are raped, murdered and driven from their homes – and the West is silent.......the Telegraph.

May I ask this lamed historian has he done any proper research who created the monster ISIS? ... and in the past, the making of Saddam Hussein, the Mujaheedins, Osama and Al-qaeda and the Contras of Nicaragua?

Who are the devils that created these monsters?

ISIS was created by the US, Israel and Britain to destabilise Syria and the whole of the Middle East region using Islam as the bogeyman to sway world's opinion against Islam and Muslims. The Zionist agenda include the extermination of small pockets of Christians to strengthen the doctrine that Islam is an evil religion. Many top brass in ISIS were trained by CIA and Mossad coaxing the use of unspeakable violence against its enemies to instil fear in the population. Killing Christians would give added value to the monstrosity of Islam.

Like everything else the Western powers had created in the past, the monsters they created went out of control and came back to bite them in the asses.

ISiS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was recruited by the CIA after the American released him from Camp Bucca during the Iraqi War and was later trained by the CIA and Mossad to fit their long term plan for the Middle East region.

One should ask why not have the US and its Western allies executed military intervention in Iraq to stop the ISIS advancement?

Even more perplexing, the Iraqi soldiers numbering almost 1.0 million strong trained by the US military have bolted,or were asked not to resist the ISIS advancement in Iraq.


What happened in Iraq is not Muslims killing Christians, it's Christians sponsored atrocities against Christians, who had become dispensable commodity in furtherance of Israel and Western powers imperialistic agenda for the region.

That's why the West is silent.

Islam is not evil, every level-headed Muslim knows that and it's plain to see there are many stupid Muslims around the world, who are easily cheated and tempted by money and power at the expense of their own religion.

To me they are not Muslims, they are heretics, or murtad.
