Taib Feeling The Heat, Getting More Irresponsible Each Day!

In the face of widening discontent and opposition to his rule amidst revelations of his corruptly obtained wealth around the world, Taib Mahmud is getting more irresponsible by the day.

It is increasingly becoming apparent that he wants to go down with the sinking ship which he himself has torpedoed. The problem is that he does not want to go down quietly but fighting and putting the blame on others for his and BN Sarawak's predicament, as the following report in the Borneo Post makes clear:

Sarawak Headhunter's comments below in red as usual. 

I will resist any attempt by irresponsible groups to destroy govt — Taib

This headline is itself irresponsible, destructive and divisive. Who wants to "destroy" the government? Have any of the Pakatan Rakyat-run states in Malaya "destroyed" the government? Obviously not, because they are the government in those states.

Why should the opposition suddenly become "irresponsible" because there is a good chance that they can become the government?

Is it not Taib himself the irresponsible one who has destroyed the government by dictatorially corrupting it for his own personal benefit and that of his family, henchmen and cronies?

Does any Sarawakian still doubt this in the light of the recent revelations in Sarawak Report, "Exclusive - Taib's Foreign Property Portfolio"? 

BALINGIAN: Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud reiterated yesterday that he was prepared to face politicking by the opposition to resist any attempt by irresponsible quarters to destroy the government.

It is now up to the people of Sarawak themselves to resist Taib and his continuing irresponsible  acts of depriving them of the state's wealth and resources, their customary land and livelihoods.

Taib and the Sarawak BN have to be destroyed if the people want to reverse their poverty and herald in a new era of real prosperity, progress and development. Or do Sarawakians still want to remain humbly in poverty under Taib's thumb?
RACE BEGIN: Taib shoots a pistol to flag-off a boat race at Sungai 
Balingian waterfront.
LET THE RACE BEGIN: Taib shoots a pistol to flag-off a boat race at Sungai Balingian waterfront.

He should have shot himself instead! Or perhaps the useless and stingy Leo Toyad! That would have been better for the people of Mukah/Balingian and Sarawak.
This was to avoid the people from experiencing a bitter, dark and directionless life when the government institution is destroyed as a result of unscrupulous actions by members of the opposition who only know how to criticise and bad-mouth the Barisan Nasional (BN) government to achieve their selfish agenda.

What selfish agenda do the opposition have? They want to take over the government to have the state's wealth all to themselves like Taib?! WHO has achieved his selfish agenda if not Taib? WHO is the unscrupulous one if not Taib?

And now he has the cheek to say that he wants to avoid the people from having a bitter, dark and directionless life (without him) when they are already experiencing that under his regime?

The government institution has already been destroyed by Taib and his minions by their corruption, money politics, intimidation, oppressive conduct and subversion of democracy.
Taib also reminded the people not to attack government institutions and leaders blindly if they had any personal grudge and hatred against certain leaders as this could also destroy the government and bring misfortunes and hardship to the people.

Notwithstanding that Taib's government deserves to be destroyed, what more misfortune and hardship would it bring upon the people by changing the government that they are not now suffering under Taib?

Sarawak Headhunter has no personal grudge or hatred against Taib and other so-called BN "leaders". It is a matter of principle. It appears that most if not all of them are greedy, selfish and irresponsible and only care for themselves, not for the people.  

Talking in Malay, Taib said: “Kalau marah dengan nyamuk, jangan bakar kelambu. Kerana kalau kelambu terbakar, nyamuk lain datang, maka tiada pertahanan lagi.”

Macam mana kalau nyawa dan harta kita diancam oleh buaya rakus macam Taib? Ini bukan soal membakar kelambu sahaja kerana seekor nyamuk. Kalau kita bunuh buaya itu, apakah buaya lain akan datang dan kita tiada pertahanan lagi atau buaya lain akan jadi takut?

Literally translated to mean: “If one is angry with the mosquito, do not burn the mosquito net because if other mosquitoes come then there is no more defence and protection.”

What about if our lives and property are threatened by a rapacious crocodile like Taib? This is not just a question of burning a mosquito net because of one mosquito. If we were to kill that crocodile, will other crocodiles come and we have no defences left or will the other crocodiles get scared?
Taib made the remarks in his speech as guest-of-honour at ‘Pesta Bederun 2010’ festival at Sungai Balingian waterfront here yesterday.

“I don’t mind not becoming a YB (candidate in the next election) but I will strongly resist any attempt to destroy the government by the opposition,” said Taib.

The opposition only wants to take over and reform the government, not destroy it. In the process of course, Taib himself and the BN may get destroyed once it is clear to the people what they have done all these years, but that is the whole idea!
Taib said that he has contributed a lot towards the progress and development enjoyed by Sarawakians after being in politics for more than 40 years.

Rubbish! He has by his own admission left the people still poor , destitute and humbly begging for crumbs from his politics of development. At the same time, he and his family, their henchmen and cronies have become fabulously wealthy from Sarawak's resources and they have stashed most of this wealth overseas, beyond the reach of Sarawakians, or so they think.
Therefore, it would sadden him to see his noble efforts destroyed by irresponsible quarters who only knew how to talk.

Who's talking now? His noble efforts? To enrich himself? Indeed!
He also took the opportunity to remind the people to be appreciative of the noble efforts made by the government to enhance the income and quality of living of the people by strengthening peace, unity and harmony in their respective communities.

Why are there still so many poor and deprived people in Sarawak then, in spite of all these "noble" efforts? Why has the income and quality of life for the majority of Sarawakians not been enhanced, to the extent that many, especially the natives, have to seek a livelihood in the other states of Malaysia?
“It is very important for the people to understand that money and wealth alone cannot bring development and progress to the people. We need peace, unity and political stability in bringing development to the people,” added Taib, pointing to countries like Somalia and Sudan as examples of nations rich in wealth and natural resources but politically unstable and disunited resulting in great sufferings among its people.

This is the standard ultimate excuse not just for their failures but to keep them in office in spite of all their failures. When all excuses fail, intimidate and threaten the people with strife, disunity and political instability for even daring to think of changing the government. This is the ultimate trickery and treachery in their arsenal of weapons to use against the people.

Sarawakians, do not continue to be tricked or fooled by them!
There will be NO strife, disunity or political instability by a mere change in government. This is a normal democratic process every 5 years or so.

The only people who are threatened by any change in government are those who have been taking full advantage of their positions for so long at the people's expense.

These monkeys have invaded our homes at our invitation and have been having an almost endless free feast for the last fifty years and they now want to kick us out of our homes! Time to hand them the bill and show them the exit!
Taib also reminded the people not to let our country become bankrupt like Greece in the European Union where its people are chaotic and suffer greatly.

If our country becomes bankrupt, it will be because of the likes of Taib, Najib and gang.
In his speech at the function, member of parliament for Mukah Dato Sri Dr Muhammed Leo Toyad pledged his support for Taib to become Balingian assemblyman to bring more development and progress to the people in the constituency.

The useless Leo Toyad is just a yes-man, low-level facilitator of Taib's corruption and traitor to his own people.
Also present at the function was a political secretary to the Chief Minister and Jemoreng assemblyman Abu Seman Jahwie, Mukah resident Saudi Narani, organising chairman councillor Abdul Akub Arbi, Sarawak administrative officer (SAO) for Balingian Albania Linus Lukong, senior government officers and community leaders.

All participants in the rape of Sarawak and its people. 

See also the report in Free Malaysia Today, "Don't abandon BN because you don't like me".

Well Taib, Sarawak Headhunter has news for you, we are abandoning BN because we don't like BN and because we don't like you as well!

We will resist all attempts by irresponsible you to stay on!

To all Malaysians including myself. An inspiring speech and appeal by Hannah Yeoh of DAP.

So many people have been telling me just how frustrated they are with the current political situation in our country. Some have told me that they regretted voting for change because of the political instability now and would prefer returning to their old style of voting – vote for stability and forget about having a stronger opposition and greater check and balance. I shudder at the thought of this!

One needs to remember the reason why we are seeing such great resistance for change is simply because there is much to lose for those who have been in power for so long. For decades there has been so much abuse of power, unchecked misuse of public funds and plain dirty corruption. With a stronger opposition now, they stand to lose their illegal sources of income and some may even be charged and sent to prison if they are found guilty. With this in mind, they will fight at all costs to reclaim back power and to ensure they can continue to steal public funds from the people for their own enrichment. We are not just dealing with differences in politics; we are combating evil forces who will not rest till they secure back their powers and illegal sources of income.

Sometimes I feel equally frustrated and disillusioned about the political situation too. Sometimes I lie awake thinking of how to effect change in this land. Some days I cry while driving in between meetings thinking of what’s left for the future generation in this land if we give up now. I have endured much verbal attack from political enemies, accusation after accusation of me not doing anything for my constituents and etc. No one truly understands the resistance we face daily in discharging our duties except for my fellow PR assemblymen. Robert Kennedy once said *Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator and change has its enemies.*

Our enemies are resisting change but we must stand firm and continue to push for a competent, accountable and transparent government. At the end of each day, as I lay myself to sleep, I ask God for strength, wisdom and protection to face the next. I look forward to the end of the term when I can tell the people of Subang Jaya that I have remained clean and have not stolen any of the taxpayers’ funds.

As reminded by Raja Petra in his blog “*Please continue your struggle to make Malaysia a better place for our future generation. This country belongs to them and it is for them that we struggle.”

All hope is not lost. Come the next election, vote out the corrupt once and for all. Hang in there supporters and friends, the best is yet to come!

Taib and UMNO controlled BN in Sarawak will not have any new strategy except to throw money and announce new projects as they have been doing for the past 48 years.

KUALA LUMPUR: The federal government while denying it had used development projects to woo voters during the Sibu by-election, nevertheless admitted that it approved 107 projects worth RM37.7 million during the campaigning period.

Despite that, 70% of Sarawak which comprised almost all rural constituencies remain undeveloped and deprived of even basic amenities, electricity and treated water.

If you have parents, siblings and relatives living in rural areas, do you still want to see them living in poverty and suffering financial and emotional hardships and confined to perpetual poverty and mental slavery by UMNO controlled BN government?

UMNO and PBB are controlling majority of rural constituencies to remain in dominant power and ensuring the rural population remain hopelessly out of touch with the reality of what a developed and modern nation can offer to every citizens.

Give them the moral and spiritual supports to embrace Change and vote against Corruption, Abuses and Mismanagement of the UMNO controlled BN government. The rural population and voters must gang up to choose a new government and they have a choice now in Pakatan Rakyat.

SNAP is back, the forceful whisper echoed across the rainforest of Borneo.

The return of “Rentap” against the axis of evil which for almost 30 years had colonised and enslaved the minds and spirits of the rural poor?

Through SNAP, Pakatan Rakyat will be in a stronger position to educate and free the predominantly poor Dayaks living in some of the most inaccessible parts of Sarawak from mental and economic slavery perpetrated by UMNO controlled BN.

The battle of the rainforest to defeat UMNO hegemony and Taib’s empire has begun!

Sarawak4Change! Vote Pakatan Rakyat!

There are two important and urgent things that SNAP needs to do. SNAP needs to strengthen its Administration and Communication while embarking on a robust selection of qualified and credible candidates who are able to quickly embrace the new role of working with Pakatan Rakyat and bring immediate added value to the party.

Activate all previous branches and establish an actively manned service centre in all constituencies where it has support base. Ensure transparency and competency in its administrative procedures.

Communicate effectively to its supporters and rural voters that SNAP is not against the government or anti- government. Let it be known that SNAP is partnering Pakatan Rakyat and is against the UMNO controlled BN government led by Taib Mahmud in Sarawak, which had delivered less than 30% of all its promises to the rural communities and citizens in the last 48 years of governing Sarawak.

As a result of UMNO controlled BN government mismanagement of fund, resources and blatant corruptions, leakages and wastages and cronyism, and the wicked intention of Taib Mahmud to keep the rural Dayaks in perpetual poverty and confined them to begging for subsidies and grants, the people need a new government to protect their interests and ensure speedy and systematic developments are brought to the door step of the rural poor and farmers.

In Pakatan Rakyat, the people have a choice now and they don’t need another 5 years of empty promises from UMNO controlled BN government when the people had already wasted 48 years.

That's a great rebuttal of the lies that Taib The Robber has put forward to justify his robbery of Sarawak.

Taib should be head hunted (potong itu kepala) and have it displayed at one of the long-houses as a victory trophy.

Or has the Sarawak headhunters of present day Sarawak become too effeminate to do it?

All Sarawakians should rise to the challenge to remove this badly stained Taib and family and cronies, recover all their ill-gotten gains and let them live out their lives on state charity (jail) for their remaining years.
