Ketua Puteri UMNOngok:Janji autonomi PKR di S’wak tak masuk akal


This is one of the reason why we as Sarawakians should support Pakatan Rakyat in order for the 18 Point of Agreement to be finally honoured  after 47 years!!!!!! Before that,we must make sure Pakatan Rakyat form the next Federal and State Government!!!!!

Rosnah: Janji autonomi PKR di S’wak tak masuk akal

Ketua Puteri Umno Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin menyifatkan kenyataan Timbalan Presiden PKR Azmin Ali untuk memberi kuasa autonomi kepada Sarawak jika Pakatan Rakyat memerintah negara ini sebagai tidak berpijak di bumi nyata.Pernah baca 20/18 Point of Agreement tak?

Katanya kenyataan itu hanya bertujuan mengelirukan rakyat khususnya penduduk Sarawak.Siapa yang keliru?Apa yang mengelirukan?

Ketua Puteri Umno, Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid ShirlinRosnah berkata barisan pemimpin PKR kini sanggup membuat apa sahaja termasuk untuk meraih sokongan rakyat berikutan pelbagai masalah yang melanda parti itu termasuk berhadapan dengan krisis keyakinan terhadap barisan kepimpinan sedia ada.Media UMNO yang kata.Biar rakyat yang menentukan nya nanti di PRU13

“Janji-janji kosong yang ditawarkan pemimpin pakatan pembangkang termasuk yang terbaru untuk memberi kuasa autonomi kepada Sarawak amat tidak masuk akal,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan.Sekali lagi,pernah baca 20/18 Point of Agreement tak?

Rosnah berkata Sarawak, yang diketahui kaya dengan hasil galian dan sumber alam semula jadi, tidak akan dilepaskan oleh PKR yang sememangnya menunggu untuk menguasai negeri-negeri yang mempunyai hasil yang banyak.Begitu juga Sabah.Kenapa UMNO beria2 hendak menguasai Sabah sehingga sanggup menggunakan taktik kotor termasuk Projek IC M untuk menggulingkan Kerajaan PBS satu ketika dulu?


“Apa yang terjadi di Selangor sudah cukup untuk menyedarkan semua pihak bahawa kerajaan pakatan pembangkang yang diterajui PKR sangat tamak dan ingin menyapu bersih semua hasil yang ada di negeri itu,” katanya.Siapa yang tamak?Siapa yang sapu selama ini?Mana bukti salahlaku dan rasuah yang di lakukan PKR di Selangor?Khir Toyo Parti mana?


Rosnah berkata beliau hairan kenapa Azmin tidak menjanjikan memberi wilayah autonomi kepada Pulau Pinang sebaliknya memilih Sarawak jika pakatan pembangkang memerintah.Sekali lagi,pernah baca 20/18 Point of Agreement tak?

“Adakah kerana takut dengan DAP, lantas beliau tidak menamakan Pulau Pinang, sebaliknya memilih Sarawak semata-mata untuk mengambil hati penduduk di negeri itu sedangkan kerajaan Barisan Nasional telah membangunkan Sarawak dari pelbagai aspek sehinggakan rakyat di situ sentiasa memilih BN sebagai pemerintah setiap kali pilihan raya diadakan,” katanya.

Bodoh,Bangang,Bahlol,Bongok,Bengap.Hanya Taib Mahmud,keluarga nya dan Pemimpin2 BN Sarawak yang “Membangun”.Tak percaya?Sila klik di sini

World Bank confirms Sabah is Malaysia’s poorest state

KOTA KINABALU – The World Bank (WB) in Washington has confirmed through a new study that Sabah is not only the poorest state in Malaysia but it’s likely to stay that way for a considerable length of time given current efforts in poverty eradication.

The bottomline was that Malaysia’s economic planning in Sabah so far has not been for inclusive growth.

The study contained in the World Bank’s 2010 Malaysia Economic Monitor (MEM), the third in its series, was handed over last night to the state government by WB representative Emmanuel Jimenez, also Human Development Sector Director (East Asia and Pacific Region).

“Although efforts by the Government have somewhat brought down the poverty rate, it’s still not enough,” said Jimenez. “The MEM shows that Sabahans continue to struggle to make ends meet. This is more evident in the outskirts of the towns.”

Sabah is far behind other states

According to Jimenez, the deep levels of poverty in Sabah could be seen from the fact that although the state has only 10 per cent of Malaysia’s population, it has 40 per cent of the poverty. In contrast, Selangor which has nearly a quarter of the country’s population has less than 10 per cent of the poor.

The WB has also identified that most of the poor can be found in the rural areas mainly among the Rungus in the north and Orang Sungai in the east, both Kadazandusun groups; and the Suluks in the east who are a Muslim group from the Philippines from the days of the Sulu Sultanate. There are also poor among all other communities including in the urban areas among the Chinese.

Nasrun, in his comments, praised the WB for accurately identifying poverty and regional disparity as the main critical issues concerning Sabah. He disclosed that the MEM was put together with input from Sabah which was visited by a WB team several months ago.

“We are fortunate to have access to the WB’s vast expertise in addressing issues of poverty, regional disparity and inclusive growth,” said Nasrun. “They can advise us in taking a holistic approach towards addressing these challenges.”

He lamented that if compared with the states in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah is very much far behind in both hard and soft infrastructure.

Same shit different day


 

Taken from The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 — Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Abu Kassim Mohamed today intends to push the Najib administration members to declare their assets publicly.The Cabinet members now declare their assets to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak annually but it is not made public.

“Declaration of assets is very, very important,” Abu Kassim said at the 15th Malaysian Law Conference at the KL Convention Centre here.

The nation’s top graft fighter was responding to a suggestion from former Bar Council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan that the assets of politicians — particularly those in the Cabinet — and the judiciary be made publicly available for the sake of transparency.

“I agree with you… Everybody — for example, the minister or the judiciary — has to declare,” he told Ambiga.

Following the thumping Barisan Nasional (BN) took in the March 2008 general election, then-Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had directed Cabinet members to declare their assets in a bid to appease a public that was increasingly sceptical of BN’s capacity for reform.

Ministers, as well as deputy ministers, were required to fill in asset declaration forms with the MACC’s predecessor, the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA), with the intention of making the information available online for public scrutiny.

However, Abdullah backed down from this plan after facing stiff opposition from ministers, who felt that it would be an invasion of privacy for the public to know their financial worth.

Abu Kassim earlier assured Ambiga that he was willing to investigate cases involving Cabinet members impartially without any regard to their political affiliation.

“I can assure you, if there is a case… against any Cabinet member and we didn’t investigate, I’m willing to go down,” he declared, by way of assurance.

He added that he was, in fact, already investigating Cabinet members for alleged corrupt practices but stopped short of elaborating.

MACC has come under sustained fire after its January 2008 start for what detractors claim is a poor record of prosecution and ineffective fight against corruption.Read more here

Pengayau comment

Im getting sick and tired of all this Rhetorics and Polemics.There is no need for me to keep on repeating the same comment and statement  for over and over again.I let it to the readers to decide.If MACC failed to get their job done,well,just wait for the Rakyat to take  some “Serious Action” in the next General Election.Brace,brace,brace for the IMPACT!!!!

‘Zaman joli katak sudah berakhir’


http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/120890

Zaman ‘joli katak’ sudah berakhir dan wang ‘loteri minyak’ makin berkurangan, khususnya akibat kelemahan pengurusan kerajaan, kata pemimpin veteran Umno Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

 

 

 

 Menurut pengasas Petronas itu, rancangan asal gergasi petroleum itu tidak termasuk mengeluarkan minyak berlebihan untuk membayar kos projek kerajaan bernilai berbilion ringgit.

“Ia bermula dengan perjanjian (pembelian peralatan ketenteraan) dengan (perdana menteri Britain pada masa itu) Margaret Thatcher.

“Kemudian, pengeluaran minyak tiba-tiba berganda daripada 650,000 tong sehari kepada lebih satu juta tong sehari (untuk menampung pembelian senjata). Itu sudah terlalu banyak untuk kita,” katanya.

Sebagai seorang perancang utama kepada rancangan minyak Malaysia, bekas menteri kewangan itu kini cuba untuk membetulkan keadaan, lebih-lebih lagi untuk negeri asalnya sendiri yang beliau percaya mempunyai “hak berdaulat” untuk menerima bayaran royalti minyak bagi sumber yang ditemui di perairannya.

“Ianya bukan isu yang sukar sebab selagi minyak itu ditemui di perairan Kelantan, sama ada ianya kawasan usaha sama atau sama ada ia di luar pantai dalam zon ekonomi eksklusif negara, Petronas tetap perlu membayarnya,” katanya.

 

 

 

 Seperkara lagi yang perlu dijelaskan ialah rundingan di antara negeri dan pusat, yang disifatkan Tengku Razaleigh sebagai lapuk dan tidak mampu menyediakan pulangan yang diperlukan bagi pembangunan di setiap negeri.

Bekas menteri kewangan itu, dalam wawancara dengan Malaysiakini minggu lalu, juga tidak kisah dengan peringatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin supaya jangan menerima jemputan pembangkang untuk mengetuai satu kaukus parlimen berkenaan royalti minyak.

“Saya tidak peduli siapa yang beri amaran. Saya lakukan ini demi negara. Saya tidak terhutang budi dengan sesiapa.

“Saya tidak peduli. Saya mahu lihat hak daulat rakyat ini terjaga,” katanya lagi.

1.PETRONAS now has to SUPPORT the MASSIVE spendings of CORRUPTIONS

2.It is what being called CORRUPT GOVERNANCE of UMNO led Barisan Kurang Rasional

3.Billions ringgit has been in the POCKET of some LEADERS in UMNO for such a long time ago

4.This could be worse if we still let this CORRUPT GOVERNMENT to lead us

5.Sabah and Sarawak has been long SHORT-CHANGED after all the WEALTH that they took from OUR OIL&GAS RESOURCES

6.Do we still need this CORRUPTS to lead us?

7.Do we still can DENIED the GOODNESS of BARISAN KURANG RASIONAL?

X-Fail: Persoalan yang belum terjawab


Original Post  http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/120807

Rakyat Malaysia menunggu ketibaan 2010 mengharapkan jawapan kepada isu-isu yang belum selesai tahun ini. Berikut adalah 10 kes sepanjang 2009 yang belum selesai. Namun mungkin masih ada lagi yang tidak tersenarai di sini.

 

 

 

 Nasib Anwar bergantung pada bicara liwat 11

Awal bulan ini, parti komponen Pakatan Rakyat memperkukuhkan lagi kerjasama antara mereka dengan mempersetujui satu rangka dasar bersama.

Dengan mengetepikan ideologi politik, pakatan PKR-DAP-PAS telah berjaya duduk semeja untuk mengenal pasti bidang-bidang kerjasama dalam usaha untuk menawan Putrajaya dengan teraju Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Bagaimanapun, masa depan Pakatan masih dilindungi awan gelap kerana Anwar sendiri berdepan dengan perbicaraan kes liwat – bagi kedua kalinya.

Ia sepatutnya perbicaraan terbesar 2009, tetapi ia tidak berlaku selepas ketua pembangkang itu memfailkan cabaran demi cabaran di mahkamah terhadap tuduhan tersebut.

Ketua umum PKR itu memfailkan banyak permohonan – daripada memohon mendapatkan tambahan maklumat, kepada permohonan untuk membatalkan tuduhan tersebut. Namun, penghakimannya tidak memihak kepada beliau.

Perbicaraan liwat tersebut dijadual bermula pada 25 Januari ini dan ditetapkan berjalan selama sebulan. Apakah Anwar akan merengkok di penjara untuk kedua kalinya? Dan apakah yang akan terjadi kepada Pakatan jika itu menjadi kenyataan?

 

 

 

 GST dan sumber minyak yang semakin kehabisan

Kerajaan dalam keadaan terdesak untuk memperolehi sumber kewangan tambahan selain daripada hasil sumber minyak dan cukai pendapatan. Petronas menyumbangkan 40 peratus daripda bajet negara sejak sekian lamanya tetapi keadaan ini mungkin terjejas kerana negara semakin kehabisan sumber itu diterokai.

Daripada 12 juta rakyat yang berkerja, hanya 1.8 peratus – atau 15 peratus sahaja – yang membayar cukai pendapatan. Yang lainnya berpendapatan rendah dan tidak perlu membayar cukai. Ekoran keputusan kerajaan mengurangkan cukai korporat daripada 40 peratus pada 1988 kepada 28 peratus sekarang, maka pengenaan cukai baru teramat diperlukan.

Maka munculkan cukai barangan dan perkidmatan (GST), yang dikatakan pada kadar 4 peratus dan bakal menghasilkan pendapatan tambahan RM1 bilion kepada kerajaan. Tapi kerajaan memerlukan tambahan kewangan lebih daripada RM1 bilion untuk menampung kekurangan kutipan cukai, maka GST dijangka meningkatkan pada masa akan datang.

Penentang GST berhujah bahawa ia menguntungkan golongan kaya kerana ia akan memindahkan beban membayar cukai kepada rakyat
biasa. Daripada memperkenalkan cukai baru itu, mereka menyarankan supaya kerajaan menangani pembaziaran dengan mempertingkatkan usaha membanteras rasuah dan memperkenalkan tender terbuka untuk projek kerajaan.

Pakatan Rakyat and the Making of a Two Party System

Keynote address by Anwar Ibrahim at IKD Symposium on 21 November 2009.

It is a great honour to stand before you to talk about what can be described as a revolution in the collective consciousness of this nation. Last March, by the stroke of the pen, the people of Malaysia shattered all of the preconceived notions that denied the possibility of political change. In place of these old assumptions a new memory of our nation’s heritage and the self-image of its people has emerged.

Until now many of our elected representatives have failed to uphold the mantle of public office. Their interest has been an exercise in greed and avarice and not what Vaclav Havel described as a heightened responsibility for the moral state of society, and to seek out the best in that society and to develop and strengthen it. For it is only with leaders of such caliber that we can expect a government that is fair and abides by the Rules of Law, outlined in a Constitution that grants legitimacy to the very existence of that government. Anything short of this would be an injustice that approaches tyranny.

We had been weaned for many years on the notion that submissiveness and frailty were a prerequisite for the stability of the nation. Our diverse ethnic makeup, rather than an asset, was treated as a powder keg that could be ignited by the slightest spark. Economic development was not compatible with the freedoms that have been established in other democratic nations. On the contrary Malaysian democracy would be circumscribed by profoundly un-democratic rules. There was a freedom of speech but only on certain subjects. The freedom to associate was granted, but only with approved license. Due process, a fair and an impartial judiciary were granted only insofar as they did not encroach upon the vested interests of the rich and powerful. These measures were taken unscrupulously in the name of security and peace.

of democracy, there is no monopoly on the principles of political freedom and liberty. The tradition of public discussion can be found across the world such that Tocqueville in his observations on American political culture said that democracy can be seen as part of “the most continuous, ancient and permanent tendency known to history.” What Locke said in the 18th century we can find explicit precursors in the Muslim tradition. Consider the Prophet Muhammad’s Last Sermon in which he asserts the importance of property rights and the sanctity of contracts, women’s rights and racial equality. Remember this was 1400 years ago! The narrative does not stop there. al-Shatibi, the Andalusian legal scholar, articulated more completely the maqasid al-Sharia, the Higher Objectives of the Islamic Law, which sanctify the preservation of religion, life, intellect, family, and wealth; objectives that bear striking resemblance to Enlightenment ideals that would be expounded centuries later.

This is of course all theoretical. Even the Malaysian Constitution talks about equal protection under the law and proposed a system of checks and balances on power. Yet 52 years later, and after nearly 700 amendments to the original text of that document, few would argue that the original spirit of the Constitution remains intact. The upshot is that Malaysia’s experience as a pseudo democracy has been a utter disaster.

A nation blessed with vast wealth and a people with the ability to learn and excel has been left in the lurch by decades of failed policies. Hope in a brighter future has been snuffed out by the blunt instrument of state power and the cancer of corruption. Certainly the thin veneer of success has been made our country appealing to the eye. As far as developing countries go we are far ahead of the pack. But when we look under the hood, as Malaysian citizens must do on a daily basis, we are confronted with myriad contradictions – a crumbling education system, second rate health care, massive shortcomings in public transportation and crime rates which are perpetually on the rise.

It is no surprise when we see recent figures citing nearly 800,000 Malaysians professionals now working abroad.

The idea of a two party system has been talked about ad infinitum since the Spring of last year. The excitement many have expressed over the advent of this new dimension in Malaysian politics might suggest that the mere existence of a viable second party is itself the holy grail of a democratic state. Some might even draw the conclusion that once in power this alternative voice would swiftly rectify the monumental ills that have been heaped upon Malaysian society by the Barisan Nasional.
