First there’s this story by Berita Harian
Sumber berkata, satu majlis khas kemungkinan diadakan di Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra (PWTC) di sini untuk semua bakal calon.
Pada majlis berkenaan, Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak selaku Pengerusi BN dijangka menyampaikan surat watikah sebagai calon kepada mereka terbabit.
Mengenai tarikh majlis penyampaian watikah itu, sumber berkata ia bergantung kepada bila pembubaran Parlimen dan tarikh penamaan serta pengundian ditetapkan Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR).
Menurut sumber itu lagi, perkara ini tidak pernah dilakukan sebelum ini, tetapi ia berbeza kali ini, bagi memberi semangat kepada semua calon untuk berdepan PRU-14 yang disifatkan sebagai ‘ibu kepada segala pilihan raya’.
The BH story was written by veteran journalist Kadir Dikoh.
That then created a firestorm of rumour.
The “majlis khas” at PWTC was later on reported to be held on April 2.
But last night someone forwarded this to me;
22 Mac 2018
Pejabat Perdana Menteri ingin menjelaskan laporan akhbar hari ini bahawa pengumuman calon Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 akan dibuat oleh YAB Perdana Menteri Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak pada 2 April hanya merupakan satu spekulasi pihak media.
22 Mac 2018


When I saw that, I told myself that this was yet another cock-up by the BN media handlers.
They just can’t make up their mind with what they want to do.
I know BH would not publish such a story without directive from “above”.
And they keep doing this nonsense.
Just look at the mess they created with the “lost” Felda land issue.
and this one,
All that in BH.
I wonder what is really happening to the newspaper after they purged its top editors there via the last Media Prima’s VSS exercise half a year ago.
Well, maybe their new three-in-one newspaper concept is not really working very well.
Either that, or maybe they are in the process of downgrading BH by ruining its credibility and later closing it altogether to save cost.
They seemed good at that….tak cukup untung tutup, nak naik pangkat cantas orang….well, whatever.

PASIR MAS,23/03/2018,A poster Ibrahim Ali can be seen along Japan Tendong Pasir Mas,MALAY MAIL/AZINUDDIN GHAZALI
PASIR MAS – Datuk Ibrahim Ali went straight into “election mode” today in his hometown in Kelantan, after revealing yesterday that he will again vie for a Parliament seat here.
This morning, the president of Perkasa held a meeting with his trusted followers and supporters at the headquarters of the Malay rights group’s Pasir Mas and Rantau Panjang headquarters — which he dubbed “Headquarters of the People’s Struggle”.
“This morning was the operations meeting for the campaigning. Our focus will be to appeal to outstation, young and women voters. We also discussed the war of nerves,” Ibrahim told Malay Mail here.
Ibrahim also announced that he would launch his campaign team for Pasir Mas and Rantau Panjang next Friday — with an expected manpower of 3,000 people.
He said yesterday he had not decided if he will run in Pasir Mas or Rantau Panjang.

Over in Pasir Mas, several banners announcing the award ceremony on display along the road, complete with a photo of Ibrahim in his ceremonial uniform.
At an intersection in Tendong, a state seat under Pasir Mas, yellow flags were fixed to lamp posts — emblazoned with a black vector illustration of a fiery Ibrahim hoisting a hand in the air with the words “Islam Dijulang; Bangsa Diperjuang”, Malay for “Islam exalted, nation defended”.
Nearby, a white banner was hung with hasty scrawls in red: “Penduduk Tendong perlukan Tok Him di Parlimen”, Malay for “Tendong folks need Tok Him in the Parliament”, referring to Ibrahim’s moniker among locals here.

He was demolished as an independent candidate in the 13th general election by PAS’ Nik Abduh Nik Aziz, who won by over 8,000 votes in a two-way fight. When he previously ran as an independent in 2004, he also came in last among the three candidates.
Ibrahim was previously Pasir Mas MP three times: In 1986 as a Barisan Nasional candidate; in 1990 representing Semangat 46; and in 2008 using a PAS ticket.
However, it has been rumoured that Nik Abduh will not be seeking re-election as an MP, choosing to return to his late father Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat’s state seat of Chempaka, in an alleged bid for a top post in the state government.
Pakatan Harapan will field a candidate from PKR.
Ibrahim was also quoted as saying yesterday he may also contest the neighbouring Rantau Panjang federal seat, which would pit him against incumbent PAS MP and women’s wing chief Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff, who won by a majority of 6,276 in 2013.

Langkawi MP Nawawi Ahmad used to be a rising star in Umno.
Before he went into politics, Nawawi was widely perceived as among TNB’s most outstanding engineers. He also sat on the board of KTMB.
In the 2013 general elections, Nawawi put his engineering talent into good use, developing a highly systematic and efficient organization war tactic to thump his Pakatan Rakyat opponent.
He was praised by Umno for his electoral performance and was invited to pen a report to inspire the others.
No one can deny that Nawawi is a very smart guy. His political future would have been very bright if not for his one big weakness: being overly impulsive.
When the entire country was complaining about the escalating cost of living as a result of GST implementation, Nawawi responded on Facebook: “If you can’t accept GST, migrate to the Moon!”
And when the US Department of Justice mentioned about MO1, he rushed to the PM’s defense: “MO1 is the King, because His Majesty holds the highest office in Malaysia.”
His MO1 definition apparently enraged the then Yang dii-Pertuan Agong, who was also the Sultan of Kedah, and he was forced to offer “a million apologies” to His Majesty.
Much earlier, he came under public wrath for publishing the picture of Karpal Singh killed in a road accident.
Such trivial acts of foolishness have not rocked his position, but the upcoming GE14 will put him to real test!
Will he be able to defend his seat if Mahathir were to contest the Langkawi parliamentary seat?
He told me at the Langkawi Umno building, “I respect Tun, and admit he did a lot for Langkawi and the country.
“That’s why I don’t want him to come here, because election is all about fighting the rival. There may be harsh words that will hurt the feelings of this old man.”
Nawawi cautiously responded to Mahathir’s challenge.
“Anyway, from the many surveys we have conducted, BN can easily beat any PPBM candidate, including Mahathir.”
Confident as he is, many familiar with Langkawi politics, including those in Umno, confess that Nawawi is indeed no fight for Mahathir.
They feel that while Nawawi is competent and diligent, he pales when put alongside strongman Mahathir.
Nawawi and Mahathir is like David and Goliath, a young boy and a 9-foot-tall giant!
Some in Umno are of the opinion that the party should field a much stronger candidate to fight Mahathir, and this candidate must be a local who can be accepted by the voters.
There are very few who meet the criteria. Ayer Hangat state assemblyman Mohamad Rawi is perhaps the only one that comes into mind.
While Umno believes Nawawi does have a chance to fend off Mahathir’s challenge, that chance will be significantly boosted if Mohamad Rawi — who outshines Nawawi in competency, personal charm and approachability — were to be fielded instead.
When I met Rawi at Wisma Darul Aman in Alor Setar, he gave me a hug as if he was seeing a long lost friend.
He is that kind of “political animal” who knows how to engage people and communicate with them.
Indeed Rawi is more popular than Nawawi in Langkawi. He can befriend anyone, Malays or Chinese, and will answer to the needs of people seeking his help. Many know that he is a strong contender for the Kedah MB office in future.
He told me admittedly that the party leadership might want him to take Nawawi’s place to confront Mahathir.
He was confident he could beat Mahathir: “People love Mahathir, but they love Umno more!”
While Rawi may appear a little more eligible than Nawawi, he is at best just another David compared to Mahathir.
But in the legend, it was David who eventually took down Goliath with stones.
In Langkawi, even though both Nawawi and Rawi are never as powerful as Mahathir, they have the formidable backing of Umno with its inexhaustible resources that could reach out to every single household on the island.
Here, David is not fighting the giant alone. He is backed by a mighty army.
While Mahathir is still a giant basking in his past glories, he is fighting the war solitarily, and is perhaps too old to fight now!
Kedah PH secretary Dr Abdul Rahman Ahmad has admitted that Langkawi is a grey area that even Mahathir may not win.
Picking a wrong battleground could cost the giant dearly, but is there another viable option if not Langkawi?
Whatever the outcome will be, the clash between David and Goliath in Langkawi is poised to become another classic in the nation’s history.

PAC didn't say I stole from 1MDB, says PM Najib

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said he was not implicated by the Public Accounts Committee's investigation on 1MDB.
"I urge everyone to read their report. We need to ask ourselves some key questions. Firstly, did any paragraph claim that I stole 1MDB funds? Absolutely not.
"Secondly, did the report state I committed a crime? Did I do any wrong? The answer is no.
"Finally, in the report, did it say the donation from the Saudi government was from 1MDB? Absolutely not," he said.
Najib said this during a question-and-answer session with former minister Idris Jala prior to the launch of the first national transformation plan (NTP) report.
Najib had ordered an investigation on 1MDB to be done by the auditor-general and the PAC in 2015.
Following this, the PAC's report had pointed out several management problems and recommended further investigations by the police. To date, no one has been charged.
Investors still have confidence
The auditor-general's report on 1MDB, which Najib once promised would be a public document, has been classified.
However, much has happened since PAC filed the report, most notably punitive actions against banks and bankers involving 1MDB funds in Singapore and Switzerland.
The US Department of Justice is also seizing assets which were allegedly acquired with money laundered through 1MDB, such as the US$250 million mega-yacht The Equanimity.
The DOJ also claimed that US$731 million was siphoned from 1MDB and ended up in the bank accounts of a certain "Malaysian Official 1".
To a question by Idris on whether investor confidence was on the decline due to the 1MDB affair, Najib this was not true and pointed to the rapid development of Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) project as proof.
TRX was formerly a 1MDB project that has been taken over by the Finance Ministry after the company faced severe debt repayment problems.
1MDB, envisioned as a sovereign wealth fund by the Najib-administration in 2009, had problems repaying loans in 2015. Its present debts stand at RM31 billion. -Mkini

Yoursay: MB Negeri Sembilan using age-old tactic - shoot first, apologise later

YOURSAY | ‘Will Mohamad Hasan be held responsible if his words bear fruit?’
Worried Sick: Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan has brought shame on the people of Negeri Sembilan. I had such great respect for him. Now I know he has no scruples.
I listened to his talk to the mainly young members of Umno instigating them to wreck business outlets that slander the BN government. Yet he has the gall to say that it was said in jest. How stupid he thinks we are.
If there is any violence in the state before or after GE14, will Mohamad be held responsible? It is a pity, isn't it? One man can cause so much of trouble and hate for self-serving reasons.
Red Hero: So, the Negeri Sembilan MB will in all likelihood not be investigated for this serious allegation of inciting violence, although police reports against him have already been lodged.
But Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng is already being investigated for singing an anti-GST song with children. Go figure.
Hank Marvin: Good move, brigadier general Mohamad Arshad Raji. The Negeri Sembilan menteri besar is caught in the act.
It is clear for anyone who has seen the video that he was inciting violence in his speech. With Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin standing next to him to boot.
Nuckin Futs: "Mohamad had since claimed that his remarks were taken out of context, and were only meant to inspire confidence among the youth to work harder."
Right. Working harder on violence? How can this video be taken out of context? Shameful menteri besar, brainless youths.
Kamikasi: The “gangster-like” menteri besar, like all BN toadies, will shoot first and then say they are quoted out of context. In this case, he said he will bail out the gangsters.
Isn't this a blatant assurance to the crooks that no harm will come to them if they get physical when dealing with people they don't like.
Anonymous_b3cdcd05: This “foot in mouth” plague is reaching endemic proportions. Who encourages youth to work harder by advocating physical action against one’s opponents?
Arshad is not off the mark in admonishing Mohamad, saying that his conduct is likely to mar GE14 with violence.
The home minister recently warned that he is monitoring potential trouble-causing groups during GE14, whatever that meant. Was he in fact referring to Mohamad and his group of “hard working” vigilantes in Rembau?
Clong Views: Arshad, I salute you, sir, for chiding the menteri besar. Of course, it is common for our leaders to launch into inflammatory rhetoric, and then back track by saying the speech were taken out of context.
This is no joke. Even the home minister warned parties and their leaders not to make inflammatory remarks in the run-up to the 14th general election. But it remains to be seen if the police will actually act upon these orders.
Anonymous 2475091498015598: Yes, 61 years of Umno dominating political power in Malaysia has made them bold and arrogant enough to say anything they like.
In Parliament, we have one notorious character who can get away with using vulgar language without any consequence, another minister who is just as vulgar, and now a menteri besar acting like a hooligan.
What surprises me is Khairy being party to such uncouth behaviour in the background. So much for being an “Oxford graduate.”
Anonymous 2436471476414726: Good effort, Arshad, but the sad truth is the menteri besar will not be investigated because he belongs to that privileged group who is above the law. 
This group of people can say or do anything they like, including theft and money laundering, with impunity.
Those critical of the government just need to say some milder words and the men in blue will be upon them in the blink of an eye.
Alan The Chan: Thank you, Patriot, for speaking out. I am a 77-year-old man and have seen how our beautiful, multiracial and blessed country being destroyed by the leaders we have at present.
Anonymous 07988903: Coming from an incumbent MB who is supposed to be a role model for the youth, he epitomises what is truly wrong with this nation.
51 Kebabs: Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and the inspector-general of police Mohamad Fuzi Harun both said they have identified all the potential troublemakers in GE14.
The IGP even gave the figure of 1,100 potential provocateurs identified. How much is anyone willing to bet that none of those in the audience will be on that list?
Just A Malaysian: I am getting sick of this kind of barely-veiled thuggery. Stupid, greedy and evil.
Arshad, I salute you. People like yourself should be running this country. The present leaders we have belong in the gutter instead.
Mano: This really shows the behaviour of all the warlords. Give them another term, and future generations will be saddled by not just debt but begin to normalise uncouth behaviour.
Anonymous 242641505703475: Most cultures teach honesty, humility, responsibility, accountability, morality. If a person is honest, humble, responsible, accountable and moral, he will never resort to violence.
Violence is not in any culture. Violence is gangsterism. Violence is taboo in a civilised nation. Violence is thuggery.
Mahatma Gandhi taught the world to be non-violent. And he won independence for India through non-violence.
Violent leaders have no place in society; least of all in a political position. Malaysia is a peaceful nation; it has no room for violent leaders. And people should condemn such violent leaders.
What Me Worry: The Rembau MP was seen sheepishly grinning in the background when that the menteri besar was talking thrash. I wonder whether the leaders in their party condone this?
Silly question. Of course, they do. -Mkini


KL: Lim Kit Siang said signs of great disunity “deep in bowels of Umno” lead to implosion in  party.
cited several instances of “rude politics” by Umno leaders angered  party’s veterans.
1.  Rais Yatim warned  such politics would hurt Umno.
“Rais spoken out about Jamal Yunos carrying coffin to Selangor state secretariat, against Islam and Malay culture.
2. Rais also questioned Salleh Keruak for defending Jo Lo instead of upholding justice
3. Rafidah Aziz rebuked authorities failing to locate super yacht when she herself could spot it
4. also NS MB  urging Umno Youth to flip over tables at pro-opposition coffee shops.
Association of Patriots calling on MB to apologise.
(Arshad) called speech unbecoming of politician and state leader.
such gangster-like conduct totally wrong and unacceptable in M’sian culture
5. call by Umno veterans to stop attacks by party leaders against  Dr Mahathir or risk losing Kedah
(Mubarak) said Dr Mahathir is highly respected in Kedah.
6. Umno veterans secretary Mustapha Yaakub declaring no sane Umno leader would ever support Jo Lo, much less “love” the man.
Mustapha said treason to defend Jo Lo
7. public rumblings and cries from deep in bowels of Umno and Malay society
8. no sympathy and concern from those in power in Umno
My comments :  They should have dissolved Parliament last year when the Pakatan Harapan had not yet solidified, before the PH unanimously agreed on Tun Dr Mahathir as their candidate for PM. And before the PH could agree on the seat allocations. The PH was perhaps at its weakest.
And then as more time passed the more they bungled. The list cited by Mr Lim above is exactly to the point. The BN is making a fool of itself day by day.
We do not know what other bungles they will make tomorrow. Each nonsensical statement  and action will cost the BN more votes.
And now the 1MDB investigations in the US, Switzerland and other countries are picking up steam.
Time is certainly not on their side. When they finally dissolve Parliament they may not have any supporters left.
