It's Hishammuddin, not Mat Taib!

update, 22/9, 1 am: Hishammuddin is a true politician. He said Joceline Tan's report on what happened during Thursday's meeting was "NOT VERY TRUE". In other words, the report was true. Read here.

Original article: In my posting on Umno's Gang of Four here, I mentioned Mat Taib when it should have been Hishammuddin. Thank you for pointing out the mistake. Muhammad Muhammad Taib is certainly not one of the Umno members who spoke out. In fact, Mat Taib has denied there was pressure for Pak Lah to resign, criticized Malaysians for believing too much in blogs, and challenged the notion that the BN is a weakened party.
"If the BN is really weak how could the government unveil caring budgets year after year since 2004?, he asked.
Hey, he's right, y'know! Read what else he's saying here.

I have always had the greatest suspicion about Mohd Muhd Taib.

He's utterly loyal to the PM as he was to Anwar Ibrahim in the 1990s.

He was one of the member's of Anwar's shadowy "Team Wawasan."

Editors of Umno-controlled media were asked by Anwar to endorse the Team and its members.

Johan Jaaffar, then the editor-in-chief of Utusan and I refused to acknowledge the team and two of its members -- Mohd Muhd Taib and Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik.

We had our reasons. Anwar reported our stand to both.

Both of them met me (separately) and I told them why I could not support them.

As it turned out, both got into trouble later and were forced to resign from their party and government posts.

But as a person, both are friendly.

It must be granted that Abdul Rahim did a lot for Malacca. He has been trying to make a comeback but to no avail.

But Mohd Muhd Taib has been luckier. He knows which side of the bread to butter.

Thank you.

Teresa yang mendapat makanan anjing dilokap seperti didakwanya sepatutnya 'berkongsi' dengan anjing tua dan bersyukur.

Maaf bro kalau lari dari tajuk :)

"Caring budget".

Have you come across any budget that has not been labeled "caring budget"?

We also have "caring government", "caring MPs and ADUNs" and also many that "carry b..ls".

Mat Taib, after reading what was said by you, you insult our intelligence. We do not foolishly and blindly follow all that were written in the blogs. We are far more capable to digest the contents than you think.
If MSM, did not feed the public with all the half truths and the ruling govt's propaganda, we will not stay so faithful to blogs for information.
Again, if UMNO-BN administration, is less corrupted, promote integration of all races and equality, we will not be crying for a change.
Anwar is promoting Bangsa Malaysia, what is UMNO and other component parties of BN still practice and believe in...racial politics?

M2M said, we should respect the social contract as agreed to by the founding fathers of the country.
--------------------------
We have heard it all before. Almost every UMNOputra has said it at one time or another. Unfortunately they did not mention the social contract was extended again and again until they want it to be perpetual. Not only that, they have twisted it and turn it to suit their needs and agendas never the need of the poor rakyat. When was it ever the same as those agreed by our forefathers?

Salam Rocky.
Plse tell Mike Tyson, people are not stupid as what they thought.

I think he has lost his malay culture and poem. Here i would like to remind him on one of them - mulut tempayan boleh ditutup, mulut manusia?

What's about the majlis berbuka puasa organised by Pak Lah. How many attended the invitation?

Porah lah Mat Taib. Your 'bodek' is the one that will bring UMNO to the grave.

And it is not Anwar that cause the 'ribut' but it is U and UMNO.

What budget? Hi Mat Taib, do U know that the increased of petrol cause all the upside down? BN promise to look into the toll that really sickening, but what happen, all UMNO and BN leaders just shut their mouth.

If not now, the 13PU, will c u all 'kick the bucket'

"If the BN is really weak how could the government unveil caring budgets year after year since 2004?, Mat Taib asked.

Bro, and what does that have to do with the colour of seagull poo in Brighton? Why do they keep making meaningless statements like this?

Bro, here is something that is real, relevant and frightening.

SMART TUNNEL FIASCO : There is a potentially life threatening situation in Kuala Lumpur. The SMART tunnel is not complete. A vital component of the tunnel is incomplete and it is being kept from the public.

Part of the Billion Ringgit project was the construction of an Exit Channel from the Taman Desa retention pond, out into the Sungai Kerayong in Salak Selatan.

This part of the project was originally costed at RM80 mill. and MMC-Gamuda was supposed to do it.

But thru another Flip Flop event, the contract was then given to another company at a new price of RM160 million (no prizes for guessing whose family are behind this company).

But Bro, here is the gull : the Exit Channel was never constructed. And here is the poo : the RM160 million has been paid out.

No Exit Channel but RM160 million paid!

Todate the SMART Tunnel has only had to cope with unusually heavy rains of rather short duration only. People in the project warn that if it rains heavily for say 5 hours or more the SMART tunnel will not perform as per specs because there is no proper Exit Channel to handle the flood volumes of water.

This means the SMART tunnel will back up and Kuala Lumpur will be flooded again. Bro, we need to highlight this because this is an event that WILL happen. Its not a 'maybe' situation.

Bro,
What do we expect Mat Taib ala i no speaking engelis to say??Of course he had to act like Chiwawa,do what his master wan him to do la,that why he is umno barking(informasi)tool.To us,he is already history....

monsterball said...

Mat bin Mat owes alot to Dollah.
He will sink or swim with PM.
That's hopw much UMNO ministers care for Malaysians.
Six months passed after election....non stop talking about themselves.

Mind you, we are talking about him, the Mat carrying stash of Aussie dollar,in cash, years ago ...... one would rather choose to trust the credible bloggers.

correct correct correct!
UMNO never been weak otherwise how can Mat Taib got 1 million US dollar cash to carry to Aust.

rams609 said...

(This is) very unfortunate as many Malaysians believe too much in blog material, whereas in the United States their citizens investigate first blog details and do not blindly believe what is written.

WHICH UNITED STATES ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT MAT TAIB? WHICH BLOG DID YOU GET YOUR INFO FROM?!

KATA ORANG INDONESIA : ASAL NGOMONG AJA LU!

Berita dari gunung said...

Mat Taib is right. He categorised pressure as mere differences in opinions. Then again, understanding what solidarity means, there is growing suspicion that UMNO at the top is in disarray. Thats more of a reason for Abdullah to step down.

Dont wait until it is too late. For a moment I thought tears in UMNO supreme council meeting on thursday were real.

Someone mentioned about efforts made by Khairy, alwi and zaki after the council meeting for Abdullah to hold on. Now, thats the real PRESSURE!

But of course he is for a "carrying budget".

Dear Kadir Jasin, Greatest suspicion you are right !!Bila dengar dia dah buat comeback dalam Cabinet Pak Lah post PRU, memang terkejut- Why must have this "expired goods" like him lah??? Pak Lah needs this type of 'yes man' for undying support and loyalty. Pandai Mike Tyson tu.... Berjaya tipu Almarhum Sultan Selangor dulu masa dia MB selangor, kata tak nikah anak dia... Lepas tu case bawak beg penuh duit ke Australia tak paham cakap English Mat Salleh sana. Aduh, malu nak kata apa ada Cabinet Minister macam ni. Sekarang ni pun apa kerja sebagai Ketua penerangan UMNO?? UMNO doesnt seem to be "informed" of anything on the ground or is everything just made to look good? Or are they in constant denial ? Mike Tyson ...failed as Ketua Penerangan UMNO.

If only I could just pack up and leave, but I can't this is MY HOME, MY MALAYSIA, so why don't those WOLVES who have foreign properties abroad and secret SWISS account just pack up and go. Don't create so much trouble,confusion and havoc as we the average MALAYSIANS need to brace ourselves for the coming global financial tsunami. We are worried about mundane things like putting food on the table and what going to happen to our future generations once our natural resources are depleted?

When oil and commodities prices were up, we being the NET EXPORTER was in a more ADVANTAGEOUS position than other country in the region, but did we act CARING then? The action was to increase fuel price by more than 70cts, now prices are down how much CARING was shown?
There will be a serious deficit and how is this going to be financed? Maybe he should show he CARES by bringing in MONEY to MALAYSIA in briefcase from DOWN UNDER, or where ever he keeps the foreign reserves to finance this deficit.

We DO NOT NEED for these WOLVES to raise the ANIXETY LEVEL with all this WAYANG KULIT. If U must fight over the gravy train stops, go ahead, but do the HONOURABLE thing and leave us in PEACE.

THE TIME LIMIT FOR UMNO MT HAS OVER!!!!!!!
As predicted the spinning doctors around Pak Lah will create the perception that the majority of UMNO MT are all behind him and the controlled newspapers especially NST dumped all the bullshits in the front page.
Besides that, Najib quickly interfered the heated discussion for his own self benefit......
I predicted Pak Lah and KJ may have chance to win using all of their money to buy the votes during UMNO next election or the other way around shall be UMNO is going to be overhauled by new leaders which has been hoped long time ago by the public.
In any case, the credibility of UMNO MT and its leadership has been badly and chronically eroded in the eyes of most malaysians judged from the performance so far.....
I personally support DSAI for power change in Malaysia even though PAKATAN RAKYAT has not proven yet but at least we all give them a chance to prove. They may have the same fate like Pak Lah if they repeat the same blunders but again that is the basic rule of the democractic country. UMNO may play the racial cards, but again what genuine strengths and achievements they have shown so far......I do not worry so much on this because Pak Lah has had even worse record in this area and furthermore Sultans still exist and Malay is still the majority. When DSAI is in power, I believe this shall be blessing in disguise for UMNO to reinvent, restructure, clean up (whatever you call it) the party for long term benefit for malay and the country in the whole......
AT THE END, BIAR RAKYAT YANG MENENTUKAN MASA DEPAN MALAYSIA......

This is the season to blame the press. Yeah, Hishamuddin blamed the Star for being inaccurate. I guess he is just peeved that his name was given away. If he is a man, he should be a man to admit that it was him who spoke up. What is wrong with speaking your mind?

Dosa Dosa Khir Toyo-Malaysiakini


Wak juga orang Jawa tapi wak tak suka apabila orang Jawa jadi sombong dan khianati bangsa Jawa.. Wak lega apabila Khir Toyo tidak lagi menjadi Menteri Besar tapi wak tidak puas hati bila dia tidak di bawa ke muka pengadilan dan terlepas dengan segala dosa yang dilakukan semasa menjadi Menteri Besar dahulu.


Kita renung kembali dosa-dosa yang telah dilakukannya dahulu :

1. Meluluskan projek pembina jalan merentasi bendang termahal, di Sekinchan, sejauh 20.5 km, bernilai RM92.5 juta kepada kontraktor yang hampir disenaraihitamkan, Meram Holdings. Menurut taksiran JKR, kos jalan itu tidak boleh melebihi RM50 juta. Subkontraktor yang menjalan semua projek berkenaan, Cabaran Wangsa, di miliki Pua Kim An, 27 tahun, tuan rumah yang pernah disewa oleh Khir, manakala seorang lagi pengarah syarikat, Ahmad Tarmizi Tajjeury adalah kroni Khir yang juga mendapat 100 ekar tanah yang memberi keuntungan minimum RM20 juta.

2. Meluluskan tanah 400 ekar di Shah Alam, pada 20 Disember 2000 kepada empat syarikat berbeza (Layar Kekal/ Tirai Gemilang, Samasys, Usahasewa Sdn Bhd), tetapi seorang nama pengarahnya (Samsuri Rahmat) hadir dalam semua syarikat tersebut, iaitu seolah-olah Khir meluluskan tanah berpontensi tinggi itu kepada seorang sahaja. Nilai tanah di kawasan berkenaan boleh mencapai RM1 juta untuk satu ekar. Samsuri boleh untung minimum RM300 juta dari tanah tersebut.

3. Meluluskan tanah kepada kroninya secara berulang kali dalam tempoh masa singkat. Daripada hanya dua mesyuarat Exco Kerajaan Negeri yang diambil secara rawak, iaitu pada 20 Nov. 2000 dan 4 Julai 2001, sekurang-kurangnya empat nama bertindan yang mendapat 100 ekar setiap orang, Ahmad Tarmizi Tajjeury, A.Rahman Mokhtar, Suzilawani Mustaphin dan Ali Nordin. Semua mereka ada hubungan, sama ada dengan Khir ataupun Setpol, Dr Karim Mansor. Sebahagian tanah ini telah dijual, dan pemiliknya boleh mengaut keuntungan RM200,000 seekar tanpa mengeluarkan modal walaupun satu sen.

4. Meluluskan tanah seluas 50 ekar setiap seorang kepada empat pemohon yang hanya baru berusia 20 tahun (Ahmad Azmir, Noor Ashikin, Mardhiah, Azril Yusri).Salah seorang darinya adalah anak pegawai Daerah Kuala Langat, di mana lokasi tanah itu dikesan. Difahamkan sebahagian anak-anak muda ini tidak tahu pun yang mereka mendapat tanah berkenaan kerana mereka hanya penama bagi pihak yang rapat dengan Khir. Mereka ini hanya menjadi pengarah syarikat, tidak pun sampai 40 hari sebelum Exco meluluskan permohonan mereka. Beberapa syarikat terbabit dikenal pasti mempunyai pemegang syer yang sama, yang terdiri dari dua wanita yang ketika permohonan diluluskan baru berumur 24 tahun.

5. Bagaimana Khir, pada bulan Mac 2001, hanya selepas 5 bulan menjadi MB, boleh membayar semua baki pinjaman rumahnya sebanyak RM150,000 secara tunai kepada BBMB Kajang. Kalaupun beliau tidak membelanjakan langsung elaun MBnya, beliau tidak mampu membayar semua pinjamannya itu.Rumah itu juga diubahsuai dengan kos yang besar, ini belum lagi dikira kos membina rumahnya sekarang di Simpang Lima, Tanjung karang, yang menelan belanja lebih RM300,000.

6. Menggunakan kuasa dan pengaruhnya sebagai Pengerusi PKNS untuk mendapatkan sebidang tapak banglo di Lot 14, Jalan 2/1G, Seksyen 2 Tambahan, Bandar Baru Bangi dengan diskaun hebat, 50%. Khir berbohong di Dun Selangor pada 31 Oktober 2001 apabila mendakwa beliau tidak membeli tanah itu, kononnya kerana tidak mampu dan dia juga menafikan pernah menerima dua tawaran dari PKNS dengan harga yang berbeza-beza. Salinan pembayarannya telah diperolehi.

7. Khir memberi sumbangan peribadinya, berbentuk telur ayam, ayam dan peralatan sekolah kepada pengundi di kawasannya, di Sungai Panjang pada 25 Disember 2000. Nilainya hampir RM200 ribu. Apabila dipersoalkan dari mana sumber kewangannya, beliau, melalui akhbar Malay Mail pada 15 Januari 2001 mendakwa sumbangan ayam diperolehi dari Lintang Bistari Sdn Bhd sebuah syarikat bumiputera yang menurut Khir adalah syarikat ternakan ayam terbesar di Sungai Panjang. tinjauan menunjukkan bukan ayam atau reban tidak ada di kawasan berkenaan, malahan bulu dan tahi ayam pun tiada.

8. Pada 17-18 April 2001, meluluskan kawasan kayu balak Kompartment 78 Hutan Simpan Hulu Langat kepada Fungsi Mewah Sdn. Bhd, seluas lebih 1200 ekar. Fungsi Mewah dimiliki oleh Pua Kim Seng, adik Pua Kim An, yang mana rumahnya bersebelahan rumah sewa Khir di Sekinchan dahulu. Pua Kim An juga dikesan mendapat tanah 100 ekar di Shah Alam. Keluarga Pua ini menyumbangkan dana kewangan yang besar kepada Khir semasa kempen pilihan raya 1999 dahulu.

9.Projek membekal dan memasang paip air besi keluli MS1200mm, dari Semenyih ke Banting sejauh 37.3 km, bernilai RM82,385,182.. Projek ini terlalu mahal dari taksiran awal, yang tidak boleh melebihi RM40 juta. Dan jika sumber air diambil dari Pekan Dengkil kemungkinan jaraknya dapat dipendekkan menjadi hanya 20 km dan ini lebih menguntungkan. Ahli keluarga terdekat Khir didakwa mendapat imbuhan berpuluh juta daripada kontraktor LBH Engineering.

10. Meluluskan konsesi membekalkan peralatan paip air untuk jabatan Bekalan Air Selangor kepada syarikat milik Naib Ketua Umno Tanjong Karang, JAKS Sdn Bhd. Harga paip JAKS 50% lebih tinggi daripada harga kilang. Bayangkan, untuk 1 meter paip, harga JAKS adalah RM900 sedangkan harga kilang hanya RM600. Selangor mahu tukar 5,000 km paip,jadi berapa untung JAKS?

11. Meluluskan kawasan balak di Kompatmen 78, Hutan Simpan Hulu Langat, seluas lebih 1,200 ekar kepada Fungsi Mewah, milik Pua Kim Seng, iaitu abang kepada Pua Kim Seng, bekas tuan rumah yang pernah disewa Khir di Sekinchan. Keluarga Pua ini juga mendapat kontrak membina jalan termahal (RM4.6 juta untuk 1km)merentasi sawah padi daripada Meram Holdings, kontraktor yang hampir disenarai-hitamkan.

12. Khir membayar RM10,000 sebulan bagi tapak banglonya, di Lot 14, Jalan 2/1G, Seksyen 2 Tambahan, Bandar Baru Bangi, yang dibelinya daripada PKNS dengan harga diskaun 50 peratus. Sumber pendapatannya dipertikai kerana sebelum ini beliau membayar tunai RM150,000 untuk selesaikan pinjaman rumahnya di Kajang, selepas lima bulan menjadi MB.

13. Beliau mengarahkan Pengarah JKR Selangor, melalui nota pensil (agar dapat dipadam jika timbul kontroversi kelak), agar menyerahkan projek yang membawa keuntungan lumayan kepada kontraktor kroni. Antara projek terbabit ialah pembinaan jalan di Sabak Bernam, masjid di Puchong Perdana, kem wataniah dan kuaters kakitangan SUK di Shah Alam.

14. Khir mempunyai hubungan rapat dengan kontraktor yang memohon projek kerajaan negeri, misalnya beliau bersama keluarga pernah bermalam di sebuah resort mewah di Janda Baik milik kroninya. Majulia Sdn. Bhd. Ini bercanggah dengan surat akujanji yang ditandatanganinya di depan Sultan Selangor.

15. Menswastakan kutipan tunggakan pembayaran ansuran bulanan rumah awam kos rendah seluruh Selangor kepada syarikat kroni, Noble Nexus Sdn Bhd melalui perjanjian konsesi pada 27 September 2001. Untung lumayan dapat dipungut secara mudah kerana tugas Nobel Nexus hanya menghantar notis saman dan 30% kutipan menjadi miliknya.

16. Meluluskan pembelian kenderaan rasmi kepada Exco Kerajaan Negeri Selangor dan Menteri Besar (dirinya sendiri) melalui mesyuarat Exco ke 25/2001 pada 26 September 2001, tanpa melalui prosedur yang lazim digunakan. Usia kereta rasmi MB belum sampai lima tahun (didaftarkan pada Jun 1997), dan tempoh Khir menjadi MB baru setahun iaitu tidak sampai lima tahun seperti sepatutnya. Beliau juga tidak merujuk kes ini kepada Perbendaharaan dan Ibu pejabat JKR di Kuala Lumpur. Meskipun menyentuh kepentingannya, di mana kereta rasminya Merc S320L, no. plat BGF7337 ditawar untuk dijual kepadanya, Khir masih mempengerusikan mesyuarat dan tidak mengisytihar kepentingannya.

17. Khir mengarahkan agar semua minit dan kertas mesyuarat exco dikutip semula selepas mesyuarat tamat, manakala segala bahan-bahan penting mesyuarat Exco yang dipengerusikannya sejak Ogos 2000 tidak dibenarkan disimpan oleh Exco lain. Selalunya kertas-kertas penting itu diedarkan kepada anggota Exco sehari sebelum mesyuarat, iaitu pada Selasa, tetapi selepas isu rasuahnya terbongkar, ia hanya diserahkan selepas setiap Exco duduk di kerusi masing-masing. Maknanya, "Exco Selangor masuk mesyuarat berlenggang, keluar pun berlenggang."

18. Meluluskan hampir 11 ekar tanah di Bandar Baru Bangi, yang diwartakan sebagai kawasan rekreasi, kepada syarikat kroni, Bestarama Sdn Bhd. Masyarakat setempat membuat bantahan kerana setakat ini banyak kawasan hijau dibangunkan demi mengejar keuntungan lumayan. Bestarama boleh untung segera lebih RM14 juta. Menariknya, pemegang syer Bestarama juga pemegang syer Noble Nexus. Kedua-dua wanita itu hanya penama bagi suku-sakat Khir.

19. Menggunakan ratusan ribu ringgit wang kerajaan negeri untuk membeli iklan dua muka penuh berwarna dalam Utusan Malaysia, sekurang-kurangnya pada 1 Feb, 16 Mac 2002, bagi menjawab serangan Lutfi Othman yang mendakwa Khir mengagihkan tanah (yang luas dan mahal), pelbagai projek besar, balak, buat kroni dan suku-sakatnya.

20. Mengeksploit mesyuarat Majlis Tindakan ekonomi Selangor (MTES), untuk meluluskan segala tanah & projek kepada sesiapa yang disukainya tanpa kehadiran Exco lain. Mesyuarat Exco esoknya (pada setiap Rabu) hanya mengesahkan saja. MTES, menurut bekas penasihat undang-undang negeri, adalah tidak sah dari segi legal kerana ia merampas kuasa mesyuarat Exco.
