    How the UMNOPUTRA Elites Are Fighting Back?

    The Elites will never release their grip on the nation's wealth and power easily. It will require total commitment from all of us to ensure that their rule is ended permanently.

    With the impending ascension of Anwar Ibrahim to the Prime Minister seat in Putrajaya, the UMNOPUTRA’s are sweating profusely. They are nervous and more importantly they are scared. Their once tight-grip on power and the country’s wealth is in serious jeopardy.

    In view of this, they are willing to set their individual differences aside. Please note that even from the olden days, feuds between feudal lords among the Malays were frequent and prolonged. The same applied today between the UMNOPUTRA. But, the circumstances doesn’t allow for such luxuries anymore. They have formed a committee dedicated towards maintaining their continued hold on power.

    They have agreed on three short term but crucial objectives:

    a. Destroy Anwar Ibrahim’s credibility and relevance. In short, destroy him completely.
    b. Bring PAS into Barisan Nasional and thus resulting in the break up of Pakatan Rakyat
    c. Ensuring smooth transition from Pak Lah to Najib for the PM position.
    They have formed a committee consist of important figures in the government. The committee includes the IGP, Panglima Angkatan Tentera, Ketua Setiausaha Negara, several senior civil servants, UMNO leaders and many more. In short every unit and resources of the Federal Government is at their disposal to achieve the objectives I mention above.

    Pak Lah is informed on this committee and knows their objectives, but are not informed of their moves and actions. Which means that this committee has a degree of immunity for all the actions they are going to take.

    Who Are These UMNOPUTRA’s?

    They are a class of people created by the British to ensure the country is ruled in according to the whims and fancies of the British after independence was awarded to this country.

    The British recruited them from a number of types of Malays namely those related to Royalties, Malay civil servants that served under the British and local leaders that was friendly with the British.


    When the British awarded Independence to Malaysia, they effectively handed over power to this elite class of the Malays. They ensured that British interest is protected and at the same time they consolidated their control of the country’s power structure.

    To find legitimacy in a Constitutional Monarch practicing democracy, they will require a political platform. They then formed UMNO, and later Perikatan to be that political platform.
    In other words, the default political platform for them is UMNO. They form the core support base of UMNO among the Malays. And through their diabolical and ingenius scheme they are able to subdue the non malays of this country as well.

    The Non UMNOPutra Malays are nothing more than servants to them. When the elite’s require their help, the elites will fan the “Malay spirit” among the Malays and the Malays will do whatever they want them to do.

    However, as far as wealth and opportunities, the lion’s share remains with the elites while the majority of the Malays survives on whatever scraps they throw at us.
    In order to subdue and guarantee the support of the Malay masses, they employ Malays in large numbers in the public sector. Thus, creating a culture of dependency among the Malays upon them. They also ensured that the Malay masses remains ignorant as the media and flow of information is severly controlled. The “Utusan Melayu” started out as a very critical newspaper to UMNO, but in the 1950’s the newspaper was taken over by force, thus subjecting the Malays to a prolonged period of darkness and ignorance. An ignorant Malay masses will follow the whims of the UMNOPUTRA at a drop of a hat.
    Other Motivations Of The UMNOPUTRA

    Apart from the need to monopolized the country’s resources, the other motivation that’s driving the UMNO potential relegation to irrelevance. For the first time in Malaysia’s history, those not from the elite linage will have the chance to chart the course of the country. We are talking about sons and daughters of farmers, laborers, tailors in short normal people will have the power to determine what goes and what doesn’t in the running of this country. The elites will have to live their lives like other normal people and their special treatment cease to exist.
    The scenario is best explained from a dialogue from the movie “Count Monte Cristo” when Edmund Dantes asked Fernon Mondego the son of Count Mondego why has he betrayed him. Fernon replied “ You are the son of a clerk and I am not supposed to want to be you”. The dialogue sums it up and applies to the current situation in Malaysia. A shift in fortune from the UMNOPUTRA elites to the general masses, is an eventuality that must be prevented at ALL COST.

    How The Committee Operates

    Basically they operate as they will. And they have full control of every arm and resources of the Federal Government. They will use their individual powers to ensure the 3 main objectives are achieved.

    But it seems, their hold on the government is not as strong as it once were. One thing, government employees are themselves reeling from the effects of high prices and high petrol prices. Nearly every government employees are not spared from the dreaded arms of inflations.

    That explains why there is so much leaks in their movement. How do u explain a confidential doctor report of Saiful being leaked to the public, or the various meetings held between PAS leaders and UMNO leaders being known to the masses.

    They cannot operate as effective as they once could. They too are feeling the fury of the masses.

    Race And Religious Issues Are Mere Distractions

    They are not even an issue, but they are used to fan undying and unlimited support of the Malays to them. In addition, the Malay issue is used to create dissensions within the ranks of Pakatan Rakyat.

    They need to fan the fury of the Malay because each time that has happened, UMNO will reap it’s benefits.

    The real issue is corruption and abuse of power. And how the country has is going down the drain because of the UMNOPUTRA greed.

    The economy needs to be reformed so it can be dynamic and able to compete at the international level. Not serve as a tool to feed the UMNOPUTRA in ways and means that they please.

    How PAS Was Nearly Won

    They used their mole in PAS in the form of Mustafa Ali and fan the Malay spirit. On top of that, they awarded Rameli Musa a RM2b contract. Being Rameli Musa a respected figure among PAS leaders and a financier of PAS, some of the PAS leaders fell for his deception.

    Again, all this would not have happened without the support from government apparatus. But, they never expected Tok Guru Nik Aziz to resist so vehemently. And so their plans have failed, for now.

    Conclusion

    Do not kid ourselves. They are fighting back. And they will not cease the country’s level of powers and resources that easily. They will fight tooth and nail and they will ensure that their status quo is intact.

    On our side, we should take precaution and never allow ourselves to be fooled by their propaganda or deceptions. Also, we must never cease to move towards eradicating the UMNOPUTRA and we must ensure our goals are achieved without a hitch.

    The new colonialists
    Written by Toh Leong

    LETTER My father supported the Alliance and later Barisan via MCA. To my father, BN represents stability and is a coalition that takes care of all Malaysians. It was a coalition of equal partners. We were all Malaysians, but of different races.

    Any good Malaysian would want to see a better Malaysia. We will like to see a political coalition that not only creates stability, but also unity, wealth, prosperity, development, equality and win-win scenarios for all.

    Any good Malaysian will want to remove a new set of colonial master if only they are aware. These colonialists are just exploiting the resources in this blessed land. They can easily live any where in the world later, considering the amount of wealth that they have accumulated.

    Here are some of the reasons why I feel a new set of colonialists is in place.

    1. RM888 billion has flowed out of the nation as capital flight when it could have been used to finance thousands of projects. Isn't this hijacking effort the same as what the old colonists who repatriate funds back home?

    2. Contracts are given away without tender to cronies connected to colonial master. At the least, in the old colonial days, public contracts are given to the so called PWD.

    3. Public lands are transferred to the cronies and connected for a song. Many plantations in Malaysia belong to old colonial master via this route.

    4. The IPP's are indirectly taxing everyone, Malays, Chinese, Indians and others by the terms in their agreements. This is the sort of agreement that was signed by the colonial master of the past and by the gomen of the present.

    5. Agreements signed with the highway and water concessionaires guarantee profits and ever increasing rates. Only a colonial master will sign such an equal agreement on behalf of the rakyat.

    6. The old colonial master introduced ISA, Sedition Act and many oppressive laws in the nation. The present colonial master not only enhance those acts, but added new ones such PPPA, OSA, etc. Why can't we let new ideas and opinions flow so that together we can build a better nation?

    7. Under the past colonial masters, we have Austins, Minors, Oxford from one nation only. Today, we have protons and peroduas. To protect this industry forever, the prices of other cars are raised through taxes and other duties.

    8. We were really a cosmopolitan nation where the races live in harmony, during TAR's era. Good relations are screwed up because the new colonial power controlling us need to create an imaginary enemy. Divide and rule is strategy of a colonial master, whether old or new. Isn't ketuanan Melayu a divide and rule strategy?

    9. Only certain people can get AP's to buy cars of a certain category. The monopoly enables them to get make billions. Even the old colonial masters didn't think of this lobang.

    10. You encounter hundreds of obstacles when you are in business, but it can be solved under the counter. At least the old colonial master will formulate some rules and policies and stick to it. Now, we have the rule of man, rather than the rule of law.

    11. Many murders and homicides are not solved. There are sandiwara just like what the American colonialist did in foreign soil. Remember how the Americans pretended that there weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Wasn't it pure sandiwara.

    12. As per colonial power, many projects were and are going to be bulldozed through. Proton, Petronas twin towers, Warisan Merdeka tower, Asia Rare Earth in Bukit Merah, Lynas radioactive thorium in Kuantan, Bakun Dam in sarawak are just a few in my mind.

    13. The police, judiciary, civil service and other institutions of governance appears to be under certain political influence and control. The old colonial master at least practices certain amount of separation of powers. Of course, they can easily change the laws to suit themselves.

    Mind you, I am not blaming the Malays, but a very small elite group of society that is in political control. I called them colonialists because they are exploiting the majority, irrespective of race, as exactly as the old colonial master.

    It's a thought, and freedom of thought should be a universal right.

    Outsourcing the dirty work to PERKASA. Use race, fear and hatred to gather the sheep around them. Create a bogeyman to vent their anger against. Then with complete hypocrisy, tell the victims not to feel bad.

    RPK's take on psychological warfare: Bridge over trouble waters.

    Bridge over troubled water

    NO HOLDS BARRED
    Saturday, 07 May 2011 Super Admin

    So you see, while the opposition and alternative media train their guns on MCLM, Malaysia Today and RPK, the mainstream media attacks from the rear and play up the Ketuanan Christianity, Islam under siege, and the Malay rights and privileges issues.

    NO HOLDS BARRED

    Raja Petra Kamarudin

    Divide and rule
    By Elijah M, Lim Kit Siang’s Blog

    This is Umno’s strategy to remain in power in Malaysia: make the Malays feel like the Chinese and Christian communities are threatening their hold on power and position of Islam.

    They need the Malays to come out in force at the coming elections and vote for Umno candidates in a big way. But in their calculation for that to happen, they must have an imaginary enemy for the Malays/Muslims.

    Given than the Chinese have generally deserted the corrupt and self-serving MCA and Gerakan and by extension, BN, they qualify as a prime bogeyman. They are portrayed as slavish supporters of Chinese-based DAP and harbour ambitions of taking over political power from the Malays.

    Now the Christians following their support for Pakatan Rakyat in the Sarawak and their refusal to be submissive to a government, which has molested their religious rights, are also being lumped by Utusan Malaysia and pro-Umno bloggers as enemies of Islam in Malaysia.

    Such is the stupidity of these guys that they portray a prayer session in Penang with a few DAP politicians as oath-taking. Just a pointer: the only oath that Christians take is to our Lord and Saviour. Therefore, we obey God and not men.

    The bloggers hope to persuade Malay/Muslims that Christians are working with DAP to push for a Christian prime minister. I suppose these blinkered souls forgot about the Federal Constitution.

    They also forgot to tell their readers that Chinese or Christians (who by the way are mostly non-Malay bumiputeras) are not interested in political power but are interested in good governance, fairness, integrity, rule of law and equal opportunities.

    And before we believe that this strategy of divide and rule has not got the blessings of the top Umno leadership, we should think again. The policy of hammering Chinese/Christians and demonising DAP is state-sponsored.

    Just listen to Muhyiddin Yassin and other Umno leaders. Of course, Najib Razak plays the good cop but he has stayed silent as Utusan Malaysia slams Chinese.

    Instead of worrying what kind of a country he will lead, he has chosen to look the other way as Chinese and Christians are painted as usurpers of power.

    One lesson I suppose we can take from this is that Umno does not want or need the support of Chinese or Christians. So much for the Rukun Negara or 1 Malaysia.
    *************************************

    This is the hard truth. Pakatan Rakyat is in trouble, serious trouble. Barisan Nasional is winning the perception war. And everything that Pakatan Rakyat does just makes it worse. The more they dig in and hold their ground, the deeper they get bogged down into the rut. And this is because Pakatan Rakyat has amateur numbskulls in charge of its perception war.

    Politics is not about the truth. It is about perception. Never mind what is true and what is false. It is what people perceive that counts. And currently what they perceive, whether it is true or not, does not favour Pakatan Rakyat.

    Lib Dem learned this the hard way two days ago on Thursday. This is what Nick Clegg said today in his letter to the party members:

    I think it is clear that we need to do more to show people in the party and beyond what we are doing in Government and, perhaps more importantly, why. Because we are achieving a great deal. The BBC estimates that we are implementing 75% of the policies of in our manifesto, compared to just 60% of the Conservative manifesto.

    Of course, as Liberal Democrats, we are all bitterly disappointed that the referendum on the Alternative Vote has been lost. We will always remain passionate supporters of reform. But we must respect the will of the British people. This time, we were unable to convince them of the merits of this particular change.

    Lib Dem did not lose Thursday’s elections because it had not performed. In fact, it had. But it failed to convince the voters as Nick Clegg said “of the merits of this particular change”.

    Lib Dem depends on the younger voters. That was how it got in a year ago. But barely a year in office and the young turned on the party -- my daughter included who demonstrated in London against the government after voting Lib Dem in the recent general election. Just a few months after voting for the party, she turned and demonstrated against the party (even my wife and son voted against Lib Dem....sigh....).

    Barisan Nasional knows that it needs the Malay votes. It can afford to lose all the non-Malay votes but as long as it retains the Malay votes it will always be in power. So it needs to turn the Malays against the opposition. And this is the game plan.

    Now, I say Barisan Nasional, not Umno. Of course, Umno is the mastermind. But Umno can’t do it alone. MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP and the many Sabah and Sarawak parties also need to play the game. And they do.

    First, the Chinese members of Barisan Nasional frighten the Chinese Diaspora by telling them that if the opposition comes to power then PAS would be in charge and Islam would be imposed on all Malaysians, Islamic laws included.

    Then the Malay members of Barisan Nasional frighten the Malay Diaspora by telling them that if the opposition comes to power then DAP would be in charge and Christianity would be imposed on all Malaysians and Christianity would become the official religion of Malaysia.

    That is the issue of religion. Further to that the Malays are told that if the opposition come to power then the special rights and privileges of the Malays would erode and the Malays would be reduced to second-class citizens in their own country.

    Then we have the sodomy allegation and the sex videotapes of Anwar Ibrahim issue. This is supposed to paint a scenario that Anwar is not as Islamic as he pretends to be but is actually quite an immoral person, meaning he is a munafiq or hypocrite.

    The Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM) and Malaysia Today are not spared either. MCLM is being touted as a spoiler who is splitting the opposition votes by triggering three-corner fights. So now MCLM and Pakatan Rakyat are working parallel to each other but not in concert. The way things are going MCLM and Pakatan Rakyat may never be able to work together to face the next general election.

    There is of course one solution to this. MCLM can close down and not bother to contribute to the next election. That would solve the problem of the perception that MCLM is a liability to the opposition. And that is what many would like to see happen, even those from Pakatan Rakyat.

    But will this help the opposition cause? MCLM stayed out of the recent Sarawak state election. Did this help the opposition? Did they do well? Were three-corner fights avoided? That did not solve the problem did it?

    Now Malaysia Today, and I personally, are under attack from friends and foes alike. Here again the theory of ‘never mind what is true but what is being perceived is what matters’ rings true.

    Both the mainstream media as well as the alternative media have succeeded in propagating the ‘Raja Petra has made a U-turn’ story. I can understand the government-controlled mainstream media doing this. That is their job. What I can’t understand is why is the opposition-aligned alternative media also propagating the lies of the mainstream media?

    The alternative media appears to have become an extension of the mainstream media.

    So you see, while the opposition and alternative media train their guns on MCLM, Malaysia Today and RPK, the mainstream media attacks from the rear and play up the Ketuanan Christianity, Islam under siege, and the Malay rights and privileges issues.

    In short, MCLM, Malaysia Today and RPK, are bogged down in trying to fight off ‘friendly fire’ while the opposition gets machine-gunned good and proper.

    Did none of these idiots from Pakatan Rakyat read Sun Tsu or what? Losers! Now we are fighting three fronts -- the enemy plus each other.

    This is like trying to build a bridge over troubled waters.

    This is a very serious danger facing Malaysia. UMNO is prepared to sell the country to foreigners just to hang on to power. This strategy is a colonization tactic first used by the British against the Malays. Now UMNO is using it against all Malaysians. If we let UMNO get away with this, we go the way of Myanmar and one day, the Malays will wake up to realize that they are now a minority.

    We can see clearly the UMNO War Machine at work.

    Rat Race Part VI - How did UMNO stay in power? Answer- The 14 Characteristics of Fascism

    We are there already!

    The 14 Characteristics of Fascism

    by Lawrence Britt
    Spring 2003
    Free Inquiry magazine

    Political scientist Dr. Lawrence Britt recently wrote an article about fascism ("Fascism Anyone?," Free Inquiry, Spring 2003, page 20). Studying the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia), and Pinochet (Chile), Dr. Britt found they all had 14 elements in common. He calls these the identifying characteristics of fascism. The excerpt is in accordance with the magazine's policy.

    The 14 characteristics are:

    Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
    Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.


    Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
    Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.


    Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
    The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.


    Supremacy of the Military
    Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.


    Rampant Sexism
    The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and anti-gay legislation and national policy.


    Controlled Mass Media
    Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.


    Obsession with National Security
    Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.


    Religion and Government are Intertwined
    Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.


    Corporate Power is Protected
    The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.


    Labor Power is Suppressed
    Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed .


    Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
    Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.


    Obsession with Crime and Punishment
    Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.


    Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
    Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.


    Fraudulent Elections
    Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

    Sounds like a 'famous' Mamak.

    Hallmarks of a Fascist Regime

    Contributed by skip on December 8th, 2002

    One leader who has nearly absolute control of government, despite pretense otherwise. There is no effective opposition to his policies.

    All opposition held in check through various overt and covert means (although they go thru the motions of being an opposition).

    Limited public debate about policies.

    Control over media. Media only reports what government allows it to report. Covert Censorship.

    Rigged Elections

    Constant appeals to Patriotism with lots of flag waving. Flags and/or images of the Leader appear everywhere. Those who don't follow along are singled out and ridiculed.

    Vocal Opponents end up dead under mysterious circumstances (Like Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy, Paul Wellstone for example)

    Leader passes laws giving himself even more powers

    Controls the masses through Fear Mongering

    Scapegoating. Certain class of people blamed for the problems the leader faces, justifying new laws and military actions.

    Must have an ongoing war to keep people's minds off how fucked their own government is.

    No real policy to improve the lives of the average person.

    Leader surrounded only by trusted friends and business people who profit handsomely.

    Most actions favor insiders, friends and Corporate entities at the expense of the people. Laws that monitor and control business practices are removed.

    Constantly preaching morality to the masses (to cover their own immoral actions)

    Government involved in numerous illegal activities, all kept secret through various means.

    Violates, disrespects or refuses to agree to World Conventions on Human Rights, international norms of conduct, and other laws. All manner of excuses offered.

    Spy agencies given broad new powers and funding.

    Government increases covert activities against its own citizens. Citizens are urged to spy on citizens.

    Many civil liberties restricted or suspended.

    An incredible amount of blood is spilled, with no obvious benefit except to those in power.

    Does ANY of this sound familiar where you live?

    Then YOU'RE LIVING under Fascism!

    Some well known fascists:

    Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Marcos, Saddam Hussein, Noriega, Suharto, Sukarno, Pinochet, Milosovich, Bush

    Please note at one time or another most of these people were either trained or supported by the US government and had numerous business dealings with US corporations.

    The dark side led to the growth of the Nazis and Hitler. And Big Government!

    Manipulation through Opinion Polls by Gallup and Roper - the science of polling of the rational person.

    The creation of hatred and enemies to distract the masses. Politicians became convinced that the masses had to be controlled for their own good.

    The Century of the Self - 3 of 4 - There is Policeman Inside all our Heads, He Must Be Destroyed



    1970's.

    The other extreme - allow the individual to reach for all their inner desires.

    Psycho-analysts became a tool of the Conspiracists.
