Transforming The News For Malaysians

Our Prime Minister’s recently launched “Government Transformation Programme”(GTP) is yet another public relations stunt, still believing that Malaysians are an ignorant lot. This public relations act was a gross failure, wasting public funds at a time when Malaysians, especially Sabahans, are suffering financial hardship due to increased cost of food and shelter. But it must have succeeded in making some cronies happy.

1Malaysia, would perhaps be the mother of all publicity stunts catered to hoodwink the people,by the current regime.The recent outburst by Nasir Safar,a special officer to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and a former assemblyman for Pulai Sebatang in Johor, caused a furor at a seminar on the 1Malaysia concept when he made derogatory remarks about Chinese and Indian immigrants coming to Malaysia.The racist remarks made by this 30 year close friend of Najib,is tantamount to being seditious and should be immediately reprimanded.

To think that Malaysia has transformed is not totally wrong, having lost it’s relevance and credibility among investors, not forgetting being a laughing stock in the global community.

The Government has miserably failed in addressing the recent spate of burnings,arson attacks in Churches and surau’s, and most recently wild boar heads found “placed” in a mosque.

I thank the Almighty Allah, that Malaysians have matured by leaps and bounds in understanding and realizing that these lowly acts were politically motivated by those currently walking the corridors of power as a desperate move in wanting to stay in power. Minister of Misinformation, Rais Yatim, in Port Dickson recently, said “Readers will most likely shift to the Internet”. One doesn’t need to be a rocket scientist to know this but shockingly, our “learned” Minister of Misinformation is only now aware of this. Much important news and the truth about it never seems to appear in Malaysia’s main stream media, unless given the go-ahead.

An avid reader stumbled upon this piece of information which was never published or reached the shores of Malaysia or did it? How did this one get away?

PM Najib’s Visit to USA Last December was not well received by the White House.

Prime Minister Najib Razak was in Washington DC on 26th December 2009, busy eating nasi lemak and mee goreng as BERNAMA proudly reports. No mention of meetings with State Department, on Capitol Hill, with the White House, or any think tanks. Instead he bragged about 1Malaysia to the choir of Malaysians who had already heard it so many times. He also offered some comments on Malaysia’s economy, which according to a recent report is failing to make much progress these days.

No media in US would want to interview him and also no one in US would like to be seen with him.Also at the same time India’s Manmohan Singh was in the US and what did Barak Obama do? He went out of his way to charm both Mr. and Mrs. Manmohan Singh in a White House black-tie state dinner.He didn’t even notice Najis’s presence in the US.Tell me if not the Mongolian girl then what is it that merits being ostracized in the States for Najis? However Barak Obama has placed great respect for the Minister Mentor of that tiny red dot to invite him to the White House in late October for a tete-a-tete with him so that he can pick Harry’s brains on what his thoughts are of a changing world and America’s role in it.And LKY is no longer the PM of Singapore!….Recieved Through Email

What is the point of a 20 million dollar contract with APCO if our prime minister cannot even get a manufactured speaking slot at the National Press Club? We’re not even talking about Brooking or SAIS where one has to have something meaningful to say to be invited. Anyone can speak at the Press Club so long as they can afford the cost of organizing the function. Does the concept of 1World not carry much weight in the halls of international diplomacy or in the most powerful city in the world? I guess not.
I think taxpayers should demand to know why, after spending that much money on a DC lobby our prime minister cannot even get an interview on the local news.
