How Rude can a Prime Minister be ?


There are about 195 countries in the world today. Many current and former leaders of these countries are statesmen or stateswomen, with the exception of some less than honourable or even rude leaders. In the lastest news, 1 leader of these countries has recently distinguished himself and stood out to be crude and vulgar in the public forum. Najib Razak, the prime minister of Malaysia has surely carved a reputation for himself as an unrefined person with low-minded characters. You can watch the following video, courtesy of Johor Times, to ascertain the facts stated:



Najib started by calling the opposition leader, Mahathir Mohamed, with vulgar phrase 'Kepala Bapa Kau'. It literally means Your Father's Head. It is a phrase deemed very rude, crude and vulgar (bahasa kasar) in Malay language. Najib admitted that the phrase 'Kepala Bapa Kau' was 'bahasa kasar'. He was unapologetic and said 'Kepala Bapa Kau' deliberately, even though he followed that phrase with 'sorry' with an unconvincing grin.

Ex-patriates and tourists in Malaysia are strictly advised against using 'Kepala Bapa Kau' in their communication with any of the locals, matters not their ethnicity. It is a commonly known unacceptable 'bahasa kasar' in Malaysia.

The prime minister went on to use 'stupid' to describe Mahathir and the opposition alliance. He re-emphasied his use of 'stupid' by calling Mahathir 'bodoh'. Stupid can be best used to describe the Malay word 'bodoh'.

A Chinese food restaurant in London Chinatown, Wong Kei, once known as the rudest restaurant in London, made rude manner as a way of attracting customers. "How rude do you think your waiter can be?" was their tagline. Malaysian tourism ministry should immediately promote Malaysian prime minister as an attraction to tourists around the world. They must catch a glimpse of this man, probably the rudest prime minster in the world. "How rude do you think our PM can be?" should be a Malaysian tagline.

Najib is no ordinary leader. He is one self-claimed moderate Muslim in international forum that is hard to come by and constantly perplexing many Malaysians. Despite his self-claim, he is quietly supportive of other leaders in his party who are behaving in violent manners and disregard for the rule of law. There have been many allegations of corruption, money laundering, murders surrounding the leadership of Najib.

Please watch the below if you can not play the above video:

Malaysian PM for the United States of America


This is the best that Trump, the president of the United States of America (US), can hope for. The prime minister of Malaysia, a relatively small country in Asia, is pledging to strengthen the US's economy.

The people in Malaysia has actually chosen a prime minister who is determined to strengthen the US's economy. So much so that he had to fly almost 24 hours to meet Trump at Washington DC to pronounce his pledge to pump USD20 billion into the US's economy.  Imagine this. The US has a GDP per capita of USD52,000, while Malaysia has a GDP per capita of USD9,000. The US is the world's largest economy with the highest GDP.


US
Malaysia
GDP per capital
USD52,000
USD9,000

GDP or gross domestic product is a measurement of economic income in a country. Who requires help more?

It was not a trade talk as claimed by the Malaysian mainstream media. It was only a meeting worth 5 minutes and 50 seconds. There was no negotiation or discussion. It was only Najib presenting his pledge to Trump in the interest of the American economy. If you listened closely, Najib was behaving as if he was pledging to his boss what he intended to do, i.e. to strengthen the US's economy.

Trump was happily nodding away and said yes to the pledge by Najib. If you wanted to be cynical, you might have suspected that the content of the pledge was most likely written by Trump's daughter or son in law.




You can alternatively watch it on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0YDkEhvsNE


Najib, who is also known as MO1 (Malaysian Official 1) in an investigation into money laundering by the  US Department of Justice, is pledging USD3-4 billion to help Trump's infrastructure projects. The most famous infrastructure project by Trump is the wall that will divide the US and Mexico. Who say the Americans or the Mexicans are paying for the wall after all? 

Its Malaysians paying for the much publicized wall by Trump!!

Are you embarrassed as a Malaysian?

1 Malaysia, Several Murders and Many Corruptions


This is '60 minutes', a current affair program aired by the 9Now TV network in Australia. It is a shocking news about a murder made in Malaysia.



You can also view it on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maJx0r6R-Q4 

On the other hand, this news equals to no news in Malaysia. 2 bodyguards of Malaysian prime minister's wife, Rosmah Mansor, were convicted. While the case was to be heard by the highest court in Malaysia, one of them, Sirul, was able to take a plane at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia and left for Australia. The police force and immigration had 'totally no clue' that he bought air ticket, got his immigration clearance, and boarded an airline owed by a Malaysian tycoon. The other murderer, Azilah, is seeking a pardon from the Malaysian authority for his crime and is likely to succeed. 

Other reported deaths linked to the Malaysian prime minister included Kevin Morais, PI Bala, etc. Former attorney general, Abdul Gani's driver was also shot and wounded as recently as August 30, 2017, as a possible warning to Gani.

Malaysia was once known as one of the Asian tigers, an economic powerhouse in Southeast Asia, but it is better known for murders and corruption nowadays.

'Ridiculous' Has A New Name In Malaysia?


Things are happening quickly in Malaysia. The once revered Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is now a subject of ridicule and insults. He led the ruling regime, dominated by UMNO (United Malays National Organisation), in Malaysia and became the longest serving prime minister. Mahathir was the president of UMNO and the prime minister of Malaysia for 22 years. As a result of his contribution to the nation-building, he was given the title 'Bapa Pemodenan Malaysia' or 'Father of Malaysian Modernization' in 2003.

Mahathir is however now being investigated for numerous incidences during his time as the prime minister. The incidences happened 20 to 30 years ago. Umno and its pool of leaders did not seem to know that these incidences happened at that time. No accusation of abuses or wrongdoings was ever hurled against Mahathir prior this. He is now accused of money speculation in 1992; Memali incidence where villagers, in defense of a religious leader, were attacking policemen in 1985; blamed for having a father or grandfather with Indian ethnicity, etc.



These Umno leaders who are throwing allegations against Mahathir are aged 50 to 60 years. None of them however remembered any of the incidences for the last 20 to 30 years. They suddenly remembered them practically overnight.

There is only one thing that Mahathir is doing differently today. He has been making critical comments of the alleged abuses and money laundering cases of the Malaysian current prime minister, Mohammad Najib Razak. 

Mahathir may be an extreme case where a former Malaysian prime minister is persecuted in Malaysia. The rest of Malaysians are not spared, unless they support Najib. The following ordinary Malaysians have been charged in the Kuala Lumpur Session Court for making comments about Najib, perhaps to his displeasure:

  • Recruiter Nor Sabariah Abdul Kadir, 29, was reportedly accused of leaving a comment about Najib on Facebook page
  • Storekeeper Ng Thai Quen, 19, was accused of posting an edited image of Najib and his wife, Rosmah Mansor, on his Facebook page
  • Roti canai seller Mazlan Yusoff was accused of posting an article titled “Zimbabwe Today Is M’sia Tomorrow” with an edited photo of Najib and China’s former leader Mao Ze Dong.

It is not surprising that some UMNO members call their party United Mohammad Najib Organisation, and not United Malays National Organisation.

What is Wrong with the World?


BREAKING NEWS, June 27, 2017:

Attorney-General of Malaysia, Mohamed Apandi Ali today described the latest United States of America (USA)'s Department of Justice (DOJ) civil lawsuits related to the Malaysian sovereign wealth fund, 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), as politically motivated.


It must be hard to run a good and clean government. You have so many countries which are envious of you. They constantly make politically motivated civil and criminal investigations and charges against you. The country in question is Malaysia. You hear how Switzerland, the USA, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Singapore, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates, etc have been relentlessly investigating alleged wrongdoing of 1MDB with a political purpose of damaging the impeccable reputation of Malaysia, in particular, its prime minister, Najib Razak. Najib is the founder and the person in charge of 1MDB.




You just cannot believe how these European, American and Asian countries can be working together to tarnish the good reputation and governance of Malaysia. These countries seriously have nothing better to do?

Can you imagine that Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, has a dedicated page on 1MDB scandal? Click on the below to read about it:

The prime minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak, is a self-claimed golf buddy of president Trump of the USA. This did not stop the DOJ from seeking to recover more than $1.5 billion obtained from corruption involving 1MDB. Najib even has a signed photograph of Trump and himself on his desk.The supporters of Najib are crying foul! 

The prominent celebrities of Hollywood such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Miranda Kerr, the beneficiaries of gifts allegedly purchased with misappropriated 1MDB funds, have handed over 1MDB-linked assets worth millions of US dollars to the DOJ. I have to say that I pity Miranda Kerr who spent a year dating Low Taek Jho (Jho Low), the person helping Najib and 1MDB, but received 'disappearing' illegal gifts from him instead. She must have felt cheated.

When will the world stop the endless politically motivated moves against Malaysia? Apparently, corruption and money laundering are not necessarily illegal in Malaysia. They are loosely called as donation. They are all just donations. What is wrong with the rest of the world...?

How Corrupt is Malaysia?


This one simple question about Malaysia can get you plenty of news, articles and Youtube videos from all over th world. You will find out that Malaysia is the only country from Southeast Asia that is in the list of the top 5 most corrupt countries in the world.

The TIMES, a global publication, recently stated that Malaysia is the 2nd most corrupt country in the world only losing out to Brazil in its These 5 Facts That Explain the State of Global Corruption. Thankfully Malaysia is ahead of China, the other country from Asia in the top 5 list. Yes, you read me correctly. Malaysia is way ahead of China that is only in forth position (No. 4). Malaysians is still holding the title of the most corrupt country in Asia!!!

Malaysia has been in the top 2 rankings in the world since Najib Razak took over as the prime minister. It was only in 2013 that Malaysia held the crown of the world champion in corruption. Malaysia really does not need any Olympic medal to put the country as one of the top countries on the world map.

Reading about Malaysia is sometimes not as mesmerizing as watching a Youtube video. This is a concise  3 minute video below that you should watch:




If you are willing to spare just 9 minutes, you can watch a more established TV Channel 4 news broadcasted in the United Kingdom:





Corruption in Malaysia is seemingly good for British businesses. If you think the United Kingdom is serious about anti-corruption practices, please watch the British Channel 4 news below and think again.




The reality in life is that no one will help you unless you help yourself. Malaysia will continue to be one of the most corrupt nations in the world unless the Malaysians are willing to stand up against the corrupt regime and its practices.

Making Malaysia Famous Around the World


To Love is to Marry?
To Love is to Rape so that you can Marry her!

The above remarks may seem ridiculous but that is the philosophy behind the arguments of a Malaysian Islamic court judge turned law-maker, Shabudin Yahaya. He is a strong supporter of prime minister Najib Razak, the leader of the ruling regime in Malaysia, Barisan Nasional (BN) which is dominated by United Malay National Organisation (Umno). Let's see some of his remarks:


"When we discuss 12- and 15-year-olds, we don't see their physical bodies because some children aged 12 or 15, their bodies are like 18-year-old women,... Some girls who reached puberty when they were as young as nine years old. Hence, it was not 'physically and spiritually' a barrier for her to marry."



"There was nothing wrong with a rape victim marrying the rapist as it could serve as a 'remedy' to the increasing number of social problems."


"Although rape is a criminal offence, the rapist and the victim should be given a second chance to turn a new leaf in life."

"Perhaps through marriage they can lead a healthier, better life. And the person who was raped does not necessarily have a bleak future. She will have a husband, at least, and this could serve as a remedy to her."

"The girl (victim) becomes safer when she is married rather than when she is left alone. Don't assume they (rapists) remain bad people,"



Crime of rape can be justified as long as he is willing to marry her. Seriouly? Shabudin Yahaya denied his remarks a few days later by blaming the journalists for misquoting him. "The media has taken his words out of context," he added. 

Shabudin Yahaya got away unscathed despite his upmost immoral and degrading remarks. How would he be misquoted? You can listen to his remarks in Malay here:



You can alternatively listen to the summary below:



Najib Razak might have made Malaysia famous worldwide for the alleged money-laundring cases by his brainchild, 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) the last 2 years.  His lieutenant has certainly made Malaysia famous again for his life philosophy allegedly based on Islam.

Shabudin Yahaya caused quite a stir around the world as you can see below:
