The "Line-Up" Has To Go

Barisan has to go

ZAID UNTUK RAKYAT

 by Zaid Ibrahim

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the country’s entire system of administration has to change.

The former Inspector-General of Police’s revelation that Ministers and other higher-ups sometimes directed him not to arrest or investigate certain individuals for alleged criminal acts is a clear case of obstruction of justice, one that has been going on for many years.

For as long as UMNO remains in power, this practice will continue because UMNO leaders believe that they are the law. Did you hear anyone at the UMNO General Assembly express their concerns about these matters? Of course not – they would rather focus on threatening Malaysians with incidents like May 13, which they said would recur if the Barisan Nasional loses power in the next General Election. They also warned that an Opposition win will bankrupt the country.

Businessman Deepak Jaikishan’s disclosure about the alleged role of a member of the Prime Minister’s family in getting private investigator P. Balasubramaniam to retract his first statutory declaration on the murder Altantuya Shaariibuu also bodes ill for the country. Bala told me that he left the country with his wife and child in the middle of the night because they were told to leave for their own safety. It looks like the use of force, intimidation and money will not end if the BN retains power in the coming elections.
Malaysians have a clear choice: we must remove those who flout the law from their political perch or endure more of such blatant abuse of power. We must not regard this obstruction of justice as a small matter. The PM claims that the BN is holistic whilst the Pakatan Rakyat is chaotic. But the PR has been administering its states well and there has been no chaos.

Even if what the PM says is true, I for one would rather have a PR that is chaotic than live under a BN rule where bodyguards kill without motive, or where witnesses are forced to leave the country to save themselves. No democratic government anywhere in the world could have survived the kind of scandals we have witnessed under Najib’s rule. There is no greater ill than the obstruction of justice, especially when it is perpetrated by those in the higher echelons of power.

The PR is only chaotic about articulating some of their policies, and they will have their disagreements on matters like concerts and hair salons. Maybe they will also fight about issues involving gays and lesbians. But I do not believe that they would go so far as to call on the IGP to do their bidding, including the willful obstruction of justice the way UMNO does. They are, in fact, much more decent than the BN.

You can be impressed by the fiery rhetoric at the UMNO General Assembly but these are actually empty words, bereft of meaning.  Theirs are desperate voices full of fear, because they know that their days are numbered. We all have to make sure they will not rule again.

I believe there are many incidents that are blatantly committed by BN that are swept under the carpet. And the people has taken to this as a norm, sadly.

I don't see how PR's rule is chaotic, perhaps if you only read what they print in the newspaper. If one were to actually go to Penang, Selangor, and especially Kelantan, you'll get a totally different picture than what is painted for you. Kelantan is pretty liberal and not as what you're being forced-fed with.

Funnily, I don't see why the BN has to keep bombarding and throwing shit at PR if they are doing such a good and holistic job of running (more like ruining) the country. I for one believe that action speaks for itself.

And why do they still use Dr M? Do they not know that he is not quite the popular fella anymore?

Go figure. I know where my vote's going this time round. It'll be blue of course, but the lighter blue.

Like many countries that are facing elections, Malaysia is a country that has to turn a difficult bend around the road.

That turn has to be handled well lest the car overturns or skids out of the road.

The optimistic scenario would be for a peaceful transition of power from BN to Pakatan.

The realistic scenario is a zero sum game. If BN wins, the citizens suffer. If Pakatan wins, BN may create trouble and chaos that the citizens will eventually suffer for a few years. This is actually quite palatable as citizens hope the international community to come to put any undemocratic element in check. And the new government will have the chance to prove itself for the rest of the next four years.

Fat hopes. The real enemy facing Malaysia and other smaller nations is the One World Government that is getting ready to being formed soon. This OWG or NWO (New World Order) is ruled by a wicked elite that has sowed the seeds of unrest and economic devastation in Europe and the Middle East. America is already coming under its power.

Asia is next. So the ideal scenario for Malaysia is to have a coalition government bet BN/PR to fight against the loss of sovereignty to the NWO. They will fund chaos and unrest, they will divide us into rich and poor, Chinese and Malay, left anf right just as they have done in America today.

The geopolitical mystery is where does China stand. I believe China/Russia/Europe/US have their own NWO representatives who will manufacture regional conflicts that lead to the formation of a global government. This has been planned since the early 19th century by Cecil Rhodes, the CFR and the Bilderburgers (Rothschilds/Rockefellers).
