What say you now?

Actually, the pro-Umno Bloggers are wrong. PKR started its expose only in June 2012, less than two months ago. Malaysia Today already revealed the links between Tan Kay Hock and Najib more than two years ago back in 2010. And one year before PKR started screaming, Malaysia Today had revealed that George Kent would be getting the Ampang LRT project.

PKR denies Treasury officer is George Kent whistleblower

(The Malaysian Insider, 15 August 2012) – PKR has denied claims by pro-Umno bloggers that the Ministry of Finance’s (MoF) Datuk Fauziah Yaacob is the whistleblower for the controversial award of the Ampang LRT Line extension project to the George Kent joint-venture.

PKR said today the “attacks” against the ministry procurement committee’s secretary are meant to warn the civil service not to go against the decisions made by the Barisan Nasional (BN) federal government.

“I can confirm that Datuk Fauziah Yaacob is not the individual responsible for giving the documents to Keadilan,” PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin told reporters here.

“We feel this attack on Datuk Fauziah Yaacob who is a very senior civil servant…is intended to strike fear and intimidation among civil servants,” said PKR’s Rafizi Ramli (picture), who was also present at the press conference.

He claimed that the bloggers who had written on Fauziah “receive support” from Umno leaders, with “half of them paid by Umno”.

The PKR strategic director said he found the bloggers’ “attack” to be an “unethical move by BN and Umno to warn whistleblowers especially from the civil servants.”

“I think they fear that more and more civil servants will come forward and become whistleblowers.”

Rafizi has repeatedly accused Datuk Seri Najib Razak of interfering in the tender bid and granting the multimillion contract to George Kent, which he claimed was controlled by a “close associate” of the prime minister and which also scored one of the lowest points in the technical and commercial evaluation for the project.

Last month, state-owned infrastructure firm Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd announced that the George Kent-Lion Pacific joint venture (GKLP-JV) had won the deal, which George Kent said is worth RM956 million.

George Kent had also denied the “baseless allegations that GKLP-JV failed the full technical and commercial evaluations.”

*****************************************

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak who knows that the Internet and social media has emerged as a very potent political weapon now has a team of pro-Umno Bloggers to act as his spin-machine. And I personally know most of them and do keep in touch with them from time to time. No doubt we are adversaries, but we maintain a cordial relationship just like how the CIA and KGB used to do in the days of the Cold War.

By the way, while on that subject, back in 2006 I attended a function at the Perdana Leadership Foundation in Putrajaya where Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ‘holds court’. In his speech, Dr Mahathir made a reference to spin-doctors and he glanced at me as he said that. Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who was in the audience and sitting in the front row also turned to look at me. Ku Li smiled and pointed his finger at me, meaning to tell me, Dr Mahathir is talking about you.

So it appears like Dr Mahathir and Ku Li understand what I am. And what I am not is I am not a journalist or reporter and Malaysia Today is not a news portal but a psychological warfare outfit. This is something that manyMalaysia Today readers just can’t seem to understand and because of this lack of understanding they moan, groan, lament, bitch and complain about what I am doing.

The trouble with Najib’s pro-Umno Blogging team is that they are not as clever as they think. And sorry to sound pompous but I can lick them with one arm tied behind my back. I mean, if I am good I am good and should I be apologetic about that? And humility is certainly not my middle name if you know what I mean.

Anyway, the pro-Umno Bloggers have ‘identified’ the whistleblower in the George Kent-Ampang LRT revelation — or at least they think they have. And this has forced PKR to issue a statement denying it, which you can read above

Actually, the pro-Umno Bloggers are wrong. PKR started its expose only in June 2012, less than two months ago. Malaysia Today already revealed the links between Tan Kay Hock and Najib more than two years ago back in 2010. And one year before PKR started screaming, Malaysia Today had revealed that George Kent would be getting the Ampang LRT project.

That’s right, one year before PKR jumped onto the bandwagon and started screaming, Malaysia Today already told you that George Kent is going to get the LRT project. But did anyone bother to talk about it?

We told you a year before it happened that this was going to happen. But only after it happens you get hot around the collar and start screaming blue murder. Why not make all this noise before it happens to make sure it does not happen? Do you achieve anything now by trying to lock the stable door after the horse has bolted?

Quite a number of readers posted comments in Malaysia Today asking me why I am exposing the wrongdoings of the opposition. Why not expose the wrongdoings of the government instead? I normally just delete such comments and don’t even bother to post them because it is a total waste of time.

Hello, you idiots, one year or two years before something happens I tell you about it. Sometimes even five years before it happens I tell you it is going to happen. Now that it has already happened you scream at me and demand to know why I do not expose this wrongdoing.

What a stupid statement that can only come from stupid people. What is there to expose? It has already happened. You all know about it. It is already all over the news. What is there to expose what is already exposed? You want me to strip naked a naked person? A naked person is already naked. How to strip naked a person with no clothes on? Bodohnya!

The Ampang LRT is not the only expose we made long before it happened. There are so many other revelations that Malaysia Today made long before the event. And what did the opposition do about all these revelations? Zilch! They did nothing about them. Then, years later, when it finally does happen, they start screaming and foaming at the mouth.

PKR is now denying that Datuk Fauziah Yaacob from the Ministry of Finance is the whistleblower. Aiyoh! Why just deny? Denying is what Barisan Nasional and Umno does.

Najib also denied that he had an affair with Altantuya Shaariibuu or even knew her. But you all do not believe him. You cannot accept a mere denial. So why should anyone accept a denial from the opposition as well?

Tell the truth. Don’t just deny the allegation by the pro-Umno Bloggers. Tell them that Malaysia Today was the whistleblower. And tell them that PKR only started talking about the LRT project one year after Malaysia Todayhad revealed the matter.

Is this so difficult to do?

And tell them that since 2004 Malaysia Today has revealed so, so many things and is still doing so until today. And also tell them that Malaysia Today is not an opposition portal because it whacks the opposition as well as the government. And spare Datuk Fauziah Yaacob the agony of being accused of doing something that she did not do. Then let the police come for me instead of punishing the most unfortunate Datuk Fauziah Yaacob who is not guilty of anything.
