Ultimatum by DAP to SAPP showed arrogant attitude

KOTA KINABALU, May 29, 2011: SAPP President said he was surprised by the harsh way that DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang had attacked SAPP as being unrealistic and for the ultimatum that SAPP must join PR on the ground that only PR can beat BN.

"As a matter of fact, Sabah DAP chief, Jimmy Wong Sze Phin, had called and sms to invite me to the DAP harvest festival. In order to reciprocate, I invited Jimmy Wong as a guest to my house and we had a nice chat on politics" revealed Yong.

Why I left for our ‘poorer’ neighbour

Contrary to most Malaysians who work overseas, I chose a less popular destination. I have been based in Jakarta for the past year and a bit. Most people look down on Indonesia as the poorer neighbour, much like the way Singapore looks at us. However, after living here, there is much to like, and below are some of the reasons why I prefer life here and do not plan to return anytime soon:

Bukan Aset, Tetapi Parasit Dalam PBS

Saudara Pengarang,

GENERASI pemimpin Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) masakini lebih tertarik dengan daya kuasa wang dan pangkat. Generasi pelapis yang tidak pernah merasai peritnya perjuangan jatuh bangunnya parti itu, lebih rela diulit mimpi indah berbanding matlamat sebenar perjuangan untuk membela rakyat.

Maka tidak hairanlah pemimpinnya terutama di pedalaman tidak perlu ke pejabat untuk bertemu rakyat. Cukuplah mencari mereka di mana-mana pusat hiburan sama ada siang atau malam.

Inilah hakikat fenomena yang berlaku di kalangan pemimpin pemudanya, yang bukan sahaja ego, bongkak malahan sombong dan angkuh. Ketokohan Huguan Siou juga sedikit sebanyak tercalar oleh sikap pemimpin di Keningau ini.

By Simon Sipaun

Life before Malaysia

"Arrogance, pride is always the beginning of the end.  It is only in the simple hearts of man, the simple hearts, the child-like candor of an adult, that the truth will be found and the way.  I am the way!  No one shall come to the Father but through Me, for I am the way.  All who deny My visit to your world, all who have not accepted Me as the Messiah, they are against Me, and as such, will seek to destroy all who uphold the truth." - Jesus, August 5, 1974

EXCLUSIVE: Mother of Steven Tyler’s aborted baby breaks 3-decade silence - is now pro-life

The iconic photo showing Julia Holcomb and Steve Tyler together.

May 21, 2011 ( – When Julia Holcomb was sixteen she and a friend contrived to meet Steven Tyler, the frontman of the multi-platinum-selling band Aerosmith, and now co-host of American Idol. 

Holcomb’s gambit was more successful than she could have imagined. She and Tyler met backstage after an Aerosmith show, and what followed was a passionate and drug-fuelled three-year relationship that nearly culminated in marriage, even though Holcomb was a full decade younger than the rock star. But the affair eventually spun out of control and ended explosively after Holcomb was pressured into aborting Tyler’s unborn child.

Sarawak’s super tragedy

A criminal who for decades held multiple portfolios of finance, planning and resources to plunder Sarawak left, right and center, leaving bones to the people.

Dayaks want number two slot in SUPP

KUCHING: The downfall of Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) in the April 16 state election has awakened its slumbering Dayak community.

Until that fateful day, the Dayaks in SUPP were just a quota or so, it appears.

Now, the Dayaks with their fours seats are the reason why SUPP is politically relevant.

Citizenship-for-votes in Sabah: I was not involved, says Anwar

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim conceded that he had some knowledge of the citizen-for-votes operation in Sabah, allegedly spearheaded by Umno in the early 1990s when he was the party's deputy president.

However, he said that whatever information he received were from "secondary sources" as he was kept out of loop in the highly covert operation popularly known as Project IC or Project M.

"It was a special operation under the Prime Minister's Office and the Home Ministry at that time directly under Mahathir (Mohamad) and Megat Junid (Megat Ayub).

Umno, PBS squeeze insignificant ‘brother’

Pushed to a corner, Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) president
Joseph Kurup will have to decide on his party's political future.
The recent spat between Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) and Umno over the Pensiangan parliamentary seat in the coming general election, tells us at least two stories – one of arrogance and the other weakness.

PBRS, refered to here in Sabah as a “mosquito party”, is a weak party and cannot be counted on to deliver Pensiangan for Barisan Nasional but Umno is as arrogant as before, if not more emboldened now.

Taib Shows True Colours In Tasmania

As news reports are beginning to show, Australia is beginning to get a true picture of Taib Mahmud and his behaviour in Sarawak.

TV scenes of rowdy loggers disrupting and breaking up a local meeting in a town hall in Huonville, Tasmania will not go down well.

The meeting had been called by environmentally concerned local people, who are anxious about logging in their area, which is being carried out by none other than Taib’s own family company Ta Ann.  The loggers are shown to have been aggressive and abusive towards the seated audience and one woman speaker was threatened with rape!


Project IC: Anwar has a case to answer

Anwar was not only DPM at the time, he was also Umno's head of operations in 1992 to 1994 to topple PBS. Can he really claim to be ignorant?'

'Anwar not involved in Project IC'

ONG: Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim may not be directly involved in the Project IC in Sabah. But don't forget that he was deputy prime minister from 1993 to 1998. I find it hard to believe that as DPM, he did not know about such a huge project. Huge in every sense of the word.

Sabah Snake Grass

Good News!!!
Recently, I met a man who had Lymphatic Cancer - Stage 4 with 123 lymph nodes affected. His cancer started in March 2008.

Affected parts: 1st: Right lung, 2nd: Left lung, 3rd: Groin, 4th: Eye and 5th Mouth.
After 9 chemo therapies he stopped the treatment on 10/11/2008 because 5 specialists said he can only survive for 3 months. Today, after more than 2 years, he has recovered and is still living. Thanks to the Sabah Snake Grass (Clinacanthus) which he planted outside his house.
He blended the leaves with green apple (minus skin and seeds) and drank them after breakfast everyday.

False prophet Harold Camping predicts the world’s end — again

If preacher Harold Camping is right, Jesus will return on May 21, 2011 and the righteous will fly up to heaven, leaving behind only their clothes, USA Today writes.
That will be followed by five months of fire, brimstone and plagues, with millions of people dying each day and corpses piling in the streets. Finally, on Oct. 21, the world ends exactly as the Book of Revelation says it will — with a bottomless pit, a lake of fire and, at last, a new heaven and new earth.

Apocalypse Weekend: Harold Camping Says the World Ends Saturday. He's Said that Before

Julie Baker proselytizes on a New York City
street with others who believe the world
will end on Saturday.
In a comfortable office, Bible placed firmly atop his lap, 89-year-old Harold Camping is preaching with utter certainty about the end of the world. "May 21, 2011, is the day of judgment," he says with conviction, in a YouTube video posted last year. "It is the day that ends all gospel salvation activity ... It is the most important day by a billion times than any other day the world has ever known."

Austrian video - Must see

It seems the snow ball is rolling down the slope, smashing everything in its way, it started by the Dutch PM who said it loud and clear that Islam is a sick ideology, then the Norwegian PM, sent the 200 million $ back to Saudi Arabia telling them that if you need to build a mosques in my country, start by building churches in Saudi Arabia. Now, the Austrian PM is accusing the Turkish regime that they are a bunch of criminals, and asking the Turkish ambassador to take his sick ideology and return to his country. When Sulman Rushdy said it few years back, no one believed him, and the Islamic world put a price on his head, now, they are realizing that he said the truth...

‘Operation Taibetes’ – Three months for Taib to step down

‘Operation Taibetes’ – Three months for Sarawak CM to step down

Firstly, let me explain ‘Taibetes’.

What is ‘Taibetes’?

It is a name coined by MoCS for a plague ‘founded’ and thus named after Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud. The ‘disease’ is only synonymous with Sarawak.

Marina Mahathir's Response To Negara Ku .....

Some self-appointed defenders of Islam including the chief of "1 Malaysia " have insisted that Catholics should use "Tuhan" instead of "Allah" to address the Catholic or Christian God. 

But in the national anthem, "Tuhan" (not "Allah") bless the country (...Tuhan kurniakan...).  How now ?!!!.  If Malay-Muslims are that easily confused as portrayed by some politicians, they must be thinking that Malaysia is blessed by the Catholic/Christian God, and the Muslim God "Allah" is perpetually on leave.

Islam Under Attack? What about Christians?

Those who claim Islam in Malaysia is under threat should really spend a day trying to live as a Christian here.

KOTA KINABALU: A well-known activist, who has closely observed Sabah’s political landscape since the formation of Malaysia in 1963, has some advice for PKR – be more respectful and sensitive to Sabahans and Sarawakians.

Veteran activist and politician Fredoline Edwin Lojingki, 70, said the advice, if heeded, would help PKR and its Pakatan Rakyat partners in their march towards Putrajaya.

Najib's own rag-tag coup d'etat army?...RELA swelled to 2,042,215 members.

 Now everything falls into line:

 1. Millions of ringgit spent on unaccounted for arms, amunitions etc

 2. UMNO youth going for military training with RELA

 3. Najib's stating to the effect that if BN doesn't win (the next GE) nobody will and more recently: Malaysia will not be like Egypt.

 4. The hugely expanded staff in PM's department (43,000 +) make quite a sizeable voter base as well as in "influencing" voters when the time comes.

Briged Setia Negara - exclusive Perkasa militant group approved

The writing is on the wall.  Unfortunately, it looks like something ugly is in the making.  Remember, before Hitler became a dictator in Nazi Germany, he formed the Brown Shirts movement, which later became the SS.  Subsequently, this same group of people carried out all the atrocities of the regime.  So, watch out !!  DAP MP Teresa Kok is smart to have spotted it..  If the people are still passive to all this, there is little hope in Malaysia. 
Are they preparing for something 'BIG' if UMNO/BN don't get much support in the next election?  Can they graceously loose?  Time may be running out and danger lurks, so clearly.

‘Sabah has immigration powers’

The state BN government can act on its own to deal
with immigration issue, says former PKR vice-president
Jeffrey Kitingan.
KOTA KINABALU: Borneo rights activist Jeffrey Kitingan believes that Sabah Barisan Nasional (BN) partner, Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS), is barking up the wrong tree by asking the federal government to grant immigration powers to the state.

Rock Salt or Sea Salt.

STRESS RELIEF. Is salt bad for hypertensives?

What is bad for hypertension is iodized salt, which is a fake salt.  It is made up of only 3 synthetic chemicals, sodium, chloride, iodine. It does not melt in water (glistens like diamonds), does NOT melt in the body, does not melt in the kidneys, gives kidney stones, and raises blood pressure. However, it is the salt favored by the synthetic drug-based doctors who say it is very clean and sanitary, pointing to how white it is and how it glistens like   diamonds. The fake salt is man-made in a factory.

‘Sabah BN will fall’ over illegal immigrant issue

KOTA KINABALU: The recent murder of a by-stander, during a robbery by an illegal immigrant in Sabah, has thrown into sharp focus the giant in the room – the massive presence of illegal immigrants in the state.
