DAP Sudah Angkat Bendera Putih?



(PENGAKUAN TERBUKA LIEW CHIN TONG: SANGAT SUKAR UNTUK PAKATAN HARAPAN MENANG PRU 14)
(KOMENTAR BERITA HARIAN, JUMAAT, 23 JUN 2017)
Menarik sekali bila di saat menyambut hari raya ini berkesempatan membaca wawancara empat pemimpin tinggi Pakatan Harapan (PH) di dalam laporan akhbar mingguan The Edge Malaysia keluaran 19-25 Jun bertajuk “Run-Up to GE 14” (“Menjelang PRU 14).


Pemimpin tinggi PH ini ialah Pengerusi PPBM, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Naib Presiden merangkap Pengarah Pilihan Raya PKR, Nurul Izzah Anwar, dan Pengarah Strategi AMANAH, Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad, dan Pengarah Pendidikan Politik Kebangsaan merangkap Pengerusi DAP Johor, Liew Chin Tong.
Paling menarik adalah membaca pengakuan terbuka Chin Tong, yang diperkenalkan sebagai “Strategis DAP”, mengenai kelemahan PH. “Kita tidak kuat” (“we are not strong”), kata beliau, “sebahagiannya kerana persoalan kepimpinan kita sendiri” (partly because of our own leadership question”, termasuk “siapa akan jadi PM?” [“who will be PM?”].
Chin Tong juga mengaku bahawa PH hanya sekadar tahu menyerang tetapi mempunyai masalah di dalam menawarkan dasar-dasar mereka sendiri. Kata beliau, “offer(ing) policies is where we are lacking”.
Turut diakui adalah bahawa tahap sokongan pengundi bukan Melayu, khususnya pengundi Cina, terhadap PH sekarang menurun pada tahap 65% berbanding 85% di dalam Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-13 (PRU 13) kerana faktor “kepenatan” (“fatigue”).
Sebab itulah, bagi Chin Tong, PRU 14 “sangat sukar untuk PH menangi” (“will be very difficult [for us to win]”) kerana ia hanya akan berlaku bila para pengundi Melayu yang biasanya mengundi untuk UMNO mengundi untuk lain-lain parti (“when Malay voters who usually vote for UMNO vote for other parties”) dan ini perlu berlaku secara menyeluruh (“it has to be a groundswell”).
Kata Chin Tong lagi, PH terpaksa berdepan dengan dua isu kepercayaan utama: sama ada Anwar dan Mahathir serta orang-orang mereka boleh mempercayai sepenuhnya satu sama lain dan membina satu kerjasama yang asli (“We have to deal with two major trust issues: whether eventually Anwar and Mahathir and their people can fully trust each other and build a genuine collaboration”).
Berbeza dengan nada optimis sesetengah pemimpin PH yang lain, Chin Tong kelihatan agak pesimis dengan mengutarakan perasaan ragu-ragu beliau pada akhir wawancara ini. Ujar beliau, “sama ada kita boleh mencipta satu keajaiban, saya tidak pasti” (“whether we can create a miracle, I’m not sure”).
Saya melihat luahan Chin Tong di dalam wawancara ini sebagai luahan realistik seorang strategis DAP di dalam persekitaran keintelektualan yang tentu saja sangat jauh berbeza dari laungan retorik dan bombastik pemimpin PH lain, malah beliau sendiri juga pada ketika berbeza, selaku ahli-ahli politik di dalam persekitaran partisan.
Malah, jika dilihat kepada kenyataan-kenyataan Dr Mahathir, Nurul Izzah dan Dr Dzulkefly di dalam wawancara sama pun jelas terpancar kebenaran apa yang Chin Tong katakan ini.
Pengakuan Chin Tong bahawa PH mempunyai masalah di dalam menawarkan dasar-dasar mereka sendiri, selain terbukti di dalam kegagalan PH mengemukakan dokumen dasar-dasar bersama mereka, turut terlihat di dalam kenyataan-kenyataan Dr Mahathir, Nurul Izzah dan Dr Dzulkefly di dalam wawancara ini.
Bila dimaklumkan bahawa para pengundi sedang menanyakan apa yang PH boleh tawarkan jika mereka menjadi kerajaan, Dr Mahathir sekadar memberi jawapan pendek “urus-tadbir baik” (“good governance”) tanpa mampu memberikan sebarang perincian terhadap apa yang beliau maksudkan dengan “urus-tadbir baik” tersebut.
Bila ditanyakan mengenai dasar-dasar ekonomi yang akan PH laksanakan jika mereka memerintah, Nurul Izzah sekadar mampu memberikan jawapan-jawapan kabur seperti “jika anda boleh menangani kebocoran” (“if you can arrest leakages”), “kesukaran meruntuhkan satu sistem yang telah dilaksanakan” (“how do you dismantle a system that has been implemented?”), “satu pelan keluar” (“an exit plan”) atau menyatakan “Malaysia di bawah pemerintahan PH tentunya akan menjadi satu pemanjangan kepada Selangor dan Pulau Pinang” “Malaysia [under PH rule] will definitely be an extension of Selangor and Penang”).
Bila dimaklumkan bahawa ramai pengundi tidak berani mengambil risiko dengan PH, Dr Dzulkefly sekadar menyatakan “adalah penting dan kritikal bahawa PH mesti boleh menyatakan dan mempertahankan dasar-dasarnya dengan lantang dan jelas” dan “kita akan menerangkan dengan jelas dasar-dasar dan manifesto kitaserta apa kita akan buat jika kita menawan Putrajaya” tanpa mampu memberikan sebarang perincian terhadap dasar-dasar ini.
Begitu juga dengan persoalan “siapa akan jadi PM?” yang didakwa oleh Chin Tong sebagai sebahagian punca kenapa PH “tidak kuat” yang sehingga ke hari ini masih belum berkesudahan, malah menjadi semakin hangat, walaupun setelah Anwar mengumumkan penolakan beliau dari menawarkan diri sebagai bakal PM PH.
Persoalan ini berkait-rapat pula dengan isu kepercayaan antara Anwar dan Dr Mahathir serta orang-orang mereka selain kemampuan mereka membina satu kerjasama yang asli yang turut ditimbulkan oleh Chin Tong kerana sehingga ke hari ini unsur-unsur keraguan masih kelihatan sangat membara, khususnya di kalangan pendokong PKR terhadap Dr Mahathir.
Di dalam wawancara ini sekalipun, Nurul Izzah, walaupun mengakui tidak pernah membenci Dr Mahathir dan hanya membenci tindakan-tindakan beliau (“I never hated the man, I hated the actions”), masih mengulang hakikat beliau memerintah secara kuku besi (“Mahathir ruled with an iron fist”) walaupun PKR telah bergabung dengan PPBM.
Nyata sekali Dr Mahathir, seperti dakwaan tokoh veteran UMNO, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, di dalam wawancara sama bahawa menguasai seluruh perjalanan PPBM (“runs everything (in PPBM)”), dan para pendokong beliau sedang berusaha untuk melonjakkan beliau sebagai pemimpin de facto dan bakal PM PH.
Tentangan kuat kelompok tertentu di dalam PKR terhadap usaha untuk melonjakkan Dr Mahathir sekali gus menjadi petanda bahawa isu kepercayaan antara Anwar dan Dr Mahathir serta orang-orang mereka ini tidak akan reda, walaupun jika beliau berjaya dilonjakkan.
Ini ditambah pula oleh pengakuan tersirat Dr Dzulkefly mengenai ketidakmampuan AMANAH menawan hati golongan Melayu luar bandar dan mengenai kebergantungannya kepada kerusi-kerusi campuran yang menjadikan tugas PH untuk menawan undi Melayu menjadi lebih sukar.
Sebab itulah telahan Chin Tong bahawa adalah satu keajaiban jika PH mampu menawan Putrajaya, dan bahawa beliau sendiri tidak pasti jika keajaiban ini berjaya dicipta, perlu diakui oleh para pemimpin PH lain yang tidak seharusnya lena dibuai mimpi musim raya.

BIGGEST JOKE: AFTER PILLAGING BILLIONS FROM 1MDB, NAJIB SAYS ‘IRRESPONSIBLE’ TO LOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF THE PEOPLE’S MONEY BY KEEPING PROTON

PUTRAJAYA had no choice but to extend a credit line of RM1.7 billion to Proton Holdings Bhd to save 10,000 jobs, the prime minister said today.
Najib Razak said if Proton had closed, the ecosystem surrounding the national carmaker, which accounts for some 200,000 jobs, would also suffer.
“Yes, Proton was in trouble and the government was called upon to help the firm, which resulted in the soft loan we extended in 2016.
“The government helped because we cared about welfare of those hundreds of thousands of people who had jobs within Proton,” he said during the signing ceremony between Zhejiang Geely Holding Group (Geely) and DRB-Hicom.
Last month, Geely agreed to buy the ailing national carmaker from DRB-Hicom.
Geely, which controls Hong Kong-based Geely Automobile and Sweden’s Volvo Car Group, acquired a 49.9% stake in Proton.
It was reported that the government extended its line of credit amounting to RM1.7 billion on top of a RM1.2 billion soft loan last year, to support mounting operational costs and lacklustre sales.
Najib said there were also those who asked why Proton was being helped when it was a private entity.
“The reality had dawned on almost everyone, namely, that the business model was, and had always been unsustainable in the long run.
“For far too long, the unrealistic dreams and lack of commercial understanding of its former chief tester had been indulged.
“He would still prefer Proton to be 100% Malaysian owned and lose hundreds of millions of ringgit a year,” Najib said, referring indirectly to Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who started Proton in 1983 during his second year as prime minister.
Najib added: “But that is the people’s money and it would have been irresponsible for us to continue with a business model that was never going to succeed.”
He said there are some who are trapped in old ways of thinking, playing on baseless fears about foreign investment leading to a loss of sovereignty.
“Let me tell you that that will never happen on my watch. But in any case, that view is economically illiterate. Rejecting foreign direct investment, for ill-informed and sometimes frankly racist reasons, would only lead to the impoverishment of Malaysians and the erosion of our competitive edge.”

Najib was confident the new partnership between DRB-Hicom and Geely will see Proton become one of the leading carmakers in Southeast Asia and one of Malaysia’s great exports to the region.
“But we set a condition to Proton to find a strategic partner that can help achieve economies of scale.
“It was clear that to do this, Proton needed to go beyond its home shores, and the only way it was going to be able to do that was to align itself to a global giant.”
Geely today signed a definitive agreement to acquire the 49.9% stake in Proton.
The signing was inked between Geely Auto Group president and CEO An Conghui and DRB-Hicom Group managing director Syed Faisal Albar at the Grand Hyatt, Kuala Lumpur.
Geely also today acquired a 51% stake in Lotus Advance Technology Sdn Bhd.
Najib later unveiled the first public viewing of the Boyue SUV, which is part of the deal will Geely. Proton will have the rights to use the right-hand drive model of the car for Asean.

ROSMAH’S ILLICIT DIAMONDS IN PRIVATE SECURITY BOX AT AMBANK? GIVE THEM BACK TO THE PEOPLE – NURUL TELLS MO1’S WIFE DIAMONDS BOUGHT WITH STOLEN MONEY ARE ‘NOT FOREVER’

‘Diamonds are intrinsically worthless, except for the deep psychological need they fill’ – Nicky Oppenheimer
It was Tiffany that made diamonds the in thing for women in the 50s.
Captions like “Diamonds are Forever,” and “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friends,” made Tiffany’s sale go through the roof, literally becoming a household name in the age of conspicuous consumption in the US.
Fortunately for some, the carbon-clad reality hit home, and all that glitters, shine less when bathed in bloody conflict – as clearly exposed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie, Blood Diamond. The abundance of blood diamond all over Sierra Leone was one of triggering reasons behind the Sierra Leone Civil War which took place from 1991 to 2002.
Also, the government crackdown on large-scale free-for-all blood diamond mining in Zimbabwe in the early 2000’s resulted in the deaths of more than 200 people who were shot with automatic rifles, while tonnes of people were beaten, tortured and raped by the soldiers.
All in all, a staggering three to four million people were estimated to perish due to diamond mining, associated with multiple factors including unsafe working conditions and continuous civil conflicts.
In Malaysia, it would seem that the fetish with diamonds has lasted until today – for some, at least.
James Bond movie flicks like “Diamonds Are Forever” was all the rage in the mid-1970s.
Malaysians took to 007 like it was one of their own, with Jins Shamsuddin donning the role of Malaysian James Bond, often in collaboration with HK movie stars loaned by Shaw Brothers. It was the golden age of Malay movies, as working with non-Malay and international business groups became the norm.
Of course, there was the infamous Mat Bond too, with his slapstick gimmicks and wildly creative ventures into the world of organised crime.
But instead of confining ourselves to the making of better movies in Malaysia, funds pilfered from 1Malaysia Development Fund (IMDB) were channelled to Red Granite, a Hollywood-based production house. The movies the company made mimicked the hedonistic and immoral world of Wall Street seemed like a page from certain characters in Putrajaya.
While the Malaysian national film agency, Finas publicly mentioned that RM500 million worth of funding is required to seriously pursue quality filmmaking and developmental activities, only RM80 million was approved by the Malaysian government in Budget 2017, in order to facilitate the growth of creative industries and film production.
Whereas, more than US$100 million was poured in by Red Granite to produce ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, a Martin Scorsese-directed movie which made a grand total of US$392 million. Personal gains seem to take centre stage over public interest, a recurring theme in Najib Abdul Razak’s administration.
Diamonds, akin to a lesser version of blood diamonds, were bought with the debt leveraged on the Malaysian government’s good name, were bought and given away to the likes of Hollywood starlets like Miranda Kerr and even the “spouse of MO1 official.”
While we await Miranda Kerr’s good sense to surrender the diamonds to the US Department of Justice, those that ended up in the hands of the wife of the “MO1 official,” remains shrouded in mystery.
When diamonds are bought with the money pillaged from Malaysia, it goes without saying that “diamonds are not forever.”
Handing them over to the US Department of Justice remains the only right thing to do. Strangely, the US Department of Justice is seizing the 1MDB money and diamonds to be returned to the Malaysian people.
Since this is the move of US Department of Justice, it is high time that a bipartisan committee is formed to find out how these funds, including diamonds and all, can be returned to the shores of Malaysia. Or, perhaps they never left Malaysia at all, and are now in the private security box of a certain AmBank account?
As demanded by the Parliamentary opposition leader Dr Wan Azizah yesterday – this 28th of June must be a day of reckoning for those responsible for the 1MDB gargantuan scandal. It begins through deliberation between opposition lawmakers in parliament, as our incumbent BN counterparts continue to be dazzled by glittery carbon.
We have to chart a clear path for stolen assets, goods, and jewels to be returned to this country.
We owe it to 744 top SPM students who were deprived of their desires to further their tertiary studies in prestigious universities despite being promised to by the Malaysian government.
We owe it to the disabled community whose resources and infrastructures are lacking, poorly maintained and misused by certain parties.
We owe it to the sickly and needy who are experiencing physical, emotional and financial burden attributed to the progressively unaffordable medical costs.
Just as Jho Low said “size matters,” when he asked for the bigger and best pink diamond, seizure matters even more, now that the civil forfeiture has proceeded apace, and thousands of Malaysians are left stranded with less higher-educational opportunities and reduced healthcare benefits under the BN.
All that glitters surely fade away if left unfettered.
NURUL IZZAH ANWAR is Lembah Pantai MP.

Sarawak Report looks to crowdfunding to defend Hadi’s suit

Whistleblower site says this is a politically motivated attack and that those involved are hoping it will settle the action rather than place a defence.
sarawak-report-crowdfunding-1
PETALING JAYA: Whistleblower site Sarawak Report has turned to crowdfunding in efforts to raise £30,000 (RM165,000) to defend a suit by PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.
According to its crowdfunding page, the news portal had raised £15,653 at the time of writing, with 29 days left to go.
In a statement on the page, titled “Defend Sarawak Report”, the news portal said it believed it had a strong case against PAS.
“We believe we have a strong case and need to stand up to the big money that appears to be flowing into their action.”
On April 21, Hadi filed a suit against Sarawak Report at the London High Court.
PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan said the party was seeking substantial damages and an injunction to compel Sarawak Report to remove the article titled “As Najib Denies All Over 1MDB, Let’s Not Forget His Many Other Criminal Connections”.
The suit is over a claim in the article that RM90 million was “reckoned” to have entered the accounts of top PAS leaders to woo them into supporting Umno and Barisan Nasional.
At its recent muktamar, PAS had set up a special fund to collect money to cover the “costly” legal expenses of the suit. The Islamist party reportedly sought to raise RM200,000.
In its statement, Sarawak Report singled out Hadi, whom it said had taken exception to being caught up in the 1MDB scandal.
“PAS president Hadi has said he views our comments as a personal attack on his reputation in the UK, yet he is seeking to avoid placing security of costs in the UK court before we file our defence.
“This forces us to pay for expensive legal support to file that defence, money we have little hope of retrieving, whether or not he continues with his case.
“We believe this is a politically motivated attack and that the people involved are hoping we will settle the action rather than place a defence. They will then use that outcome, backed by BN’s powerful propaganda machine to seek to discredit us.”
The news portal urged people to help it fight the case “in order to counter this the latest of so many attempts to discredit our work”.

Lego condemns bootleg IS toys sold in Malaysia

The play set named ‘Falcon Commandos’ features IS jihadists with weapons and is part of a series of Lego-style toys sold online via a Chinese retailer.
lego-isis-1
PETALING JAYA: Danish toy manufacturer Lego has condemned the production of figurines, made in the style of its own famous plastic play figures, themed on violent Islamic State fighters wielding weapons like chainsaws and bombs.
Its spokesperson Camilla Pedersen was quoted by RT.com as stressing that the toys have nothing to do with the family-owned company.
“The product is not a Lego product – nor are the bricks in the set Lego bricks,” she said.
“As a company dedicated to inspiring and developing children, we would naturally never make a product like this.”
The RT report on Wednesday cited Perak schoolteacher Mahnun Mat Isa, who reportedly said last month that he had found the China-made toys and reported the matter to the police and state Islamic council.
“I came to know about it when my son who was playing with the toy showed me the ‘terrorist’ character holding a banner which displayed the words ‘Allah’ and ‘Muhammad’,” he reportedly said.
“I ask the authorities not to freely allow the entry of toys that touch on religious sensitivities in this country,” he added.
Kerian district police chief Supt Omar Bakhtiar Yaacob confirmed receiving the police report on the matter.
The RT.com report said the play set named “Falcon Commandos”, which pitches “information intelligence officers” against the IS jihadists, is part of a series of Lego-style toys being sold online via a Chinese retailer.
It said images on the set’s box show IS fighter figurines tossing dynamite sticks and launching a flaming oil barrel from a catapult, and a militant fighter armed with a chainsaw looking at a man’s decapitated head.
According to the Australian 9News website, the “Falcon Commandos” series has been seen on a major Chinese online retail platform which states it can also send the sets to Australia. -FMT

Mahathir’s secret arrangement with the Clinton Foundation

“On the 20th of June 2016, Mahathir instructed his right-hand man, Daim Zainuddin, to initiate the transfer of USD5 million through channels linked to the Clinton Foundation. The money was a ‘donation’ to assist Mrs. Clinton in her campaign against her Democratic contender for the White House, Bernie Sanders. By the 18th of July 2016, Lynch had received a portion of the sum – some USD1.12 million – through a proxy channel linked to the Clinton Foundation”
THE THIRD FORCE
On the 20th of July 2016, former United States (US) Attorney General Loretta Lynch broke the internet when she announced the filing of civil forfeitures complaints against a movie production and distribution company. The announcement, made in the presence of Andrew McCabe, pertained allegations of fraud involving Red Granite Pictures, a company co-founded by Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland.
Lynch got a hold of that information the very next day.
During the DoJ press conference, she ‘revealed’ that several companies linked to Red Granite had benefitted from the corrupt practices of 1MDB officials, resulting in money being laundered through the United States (US) financial system. Riza and McFarland, who serve as co-chairmen and producing partners in the company, were implied as having assisted these entities purchase assets worth approximately USD1billion using funds siphoned from the Malaysian wealth fund.
However, not only did Lynch lie, there is something very sinister about the whole affair that involves a complicity to move ill-gotten funds to and through the Clinton Foundation. Today, in part 18 of this series (links below article), I am going to lay bare that complicity and tell you why Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, a former Malaysian premier, arranged to transfer the USD5 million I made public last Saturday, the 17th of June 2017 (READ HERE).
But first, the DoJ announcement:

Why was it a lie?

On the 2nd of April 2016, Hilary Rodham Clinton undertook to enter an agreement with Khadem Al-Qubaisi, the former Managing Director (MD) of an Abu Dhabi investment firm, the International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC). Mrs. Clinton, then in the running for the White House, agreed to pay the Emirati businessman USD700 million in return for some assets worth approximately USD1.25 billion.
Nine days later, Peter Comey arranged to conceal transfers worth USD700 million from the Clinton Foundation to offshore entities based in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). These entities were linked to Qubaisi despite being registered under the names of some Emirati stockbrokers and Americans attached to Barclays and JP Morgan & Chase.
Just so that you know, Peter is the brother of fired FBI director James Comey and is a senior director at DLA Piper, a multinational law firm with over 30 branches around the world. Assigned to handle taxes for the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Family Foundation, Peter undertook to write the USD700 million off as ‘donations for charitable causes’ and sought tax exemptions for the Clintons.
On the 1st of July 2016, the Clinton Foundation pledged to transfer equity and property worth USD350 million to persons associated with James, then the director of the FBI. The transfers were contingent upon and subject to terms of a very secret agreement James entered with Mrs. Clinton on the 17th of May 2016.
Under the terms of the agreement, James was to keep secret the billion dollars that a group of Emiratis contributed to the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Family Foundation between the years 2012 and 2013. The contribution constituted payoffs for strategic intelligence and defense secrets belonging to the US government that Mrs. Clinton leaked to the Emiratis within the said period.
Now, these secrets – the leak of which you’re reading for the very first time here – were eventually sold to ISIS and other militant groups scattered across Libya, Saudi Arabia, the Republic of Qatar and Kuwait. The sales fetched the Clintons some USD5 billion, a quarter of which flowed though the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Family foundation between the months of January and February 2016.
By March, the Clinton’s were worth a whopping USD30 billion, discounting, of course, the sum in dollars they siphoned from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) between the months of April and July 2016. Lynch knew all about the funds Mrs. Clinton sponged off the DNC records, but couldn’t do much as she herself was on the ‘Clinton payroll’.
On the 5th of July 2016, a much wealthier James announced that his office would not recommend prosecutors to charge Mrs. Clinton for “mishandling sensitive government information” while she was Secretary of State. The announcement rocked the Trump presidential campaign – Trump and his supporters were convinced that Mrs. Clinton would be buried under the email trove WikiLeaks had dumped into the internet earlier.
A week later – just a day prior to the DoJ announcement – Mrs. Clinton pledged further transfers of equity and property worth another USD350 million to Peter, bringing the total amount she pledged to the Comeys to USD700 million. Now, that was the exact price she paid Qubaisi for the assets he sold to the Clinton Foundation on the 11th of April 2016.
The sale was negotiated through a quid pro quo arrangement that required Mrs. Clinton to fast track a planned announcement by the DoJ. The announcement was set to imply that the Prime Minister of Malaysia had colluded with 1MDB officials to spirit money through US financial institutions. Qubaisi needed the announcement for very specific reasons and unequivocally agreed to all of Mrs. Clinton’s terms and conditions.

Why did Qubaisi need the DoJ announcement?

The assets Qubaisi pledged to the Clintons were based in the US, parked under the names of the Emirati stockbrokers I spoke of earlier. These Emiratis were closely allied to the (then) chairman of Barclays, Marcus Ambrose Paul Agius. Just so that you know, Marcus is the man who, in 2014, insisted that Clare Rewcastle Brown be roped into a conspiracy to bankrupt 1MDB (READ HERE).
Qubaisi acquired those assets in 2005 using ill-gotten wealth he channeled through a network of opaque entities based in the BVI. These entities pulled that wealth into legitimate assets – then worth USD700 million – using hedge funds belonging to the Carlyle Group and others linked to Marcus and George Soros (READ HERE).
The assets were purchased at the height of a housing bubble that Soros artificially inflated between the years 2005 and 2006 (READ HERE). When Mrs. Clinton offered Qubaisi USD700 million, it presented him an opportunity to dispose of those assets without losing a cent. As a matter of fact, the difference (between the sale price and market value) afforded him the USD500 million tag that Mrs. Clinton put to guarantee the filing of civil forfeitures complaints against Red Granite Pictures.
Now, Qubaisi didn’t mind paying the price, considering that he made USD1.1 billion simply by moving 1MDB funds around the BVI before locking USD600 million into a different set of assets, now worth approximately USD1.5 billion (READ HERE). What mattered most to him was the fast tracking of an announcement by the DoJ. He needed to convince Abu Dhabi that Najib conspired with IPIC insiders and his son in-law, Riza Aziz, to divert funds meant for the Emirati firm into companies linked to Red Granite.

Why did Mrs. Clinton need the DoJ announcement?

Mrs. Clinton needed to impress upon Trump supporters that she was serious in combatting terrorism and instances of money laundering involving Muslim nations. Back then, Trump had repeatedly told his campaign that the Democratic presidential hopeful was protecting terrorist organizations to remain “politically correct.” Then, on the 16th of June 2016, Trump said something that changed the course of the Clinton campaign permanently.
On that day, the Repubican presidential candidate accused Mrs. Clinton of supporting policies that brought the threat of radical Islam into the US and other parts of the world. Later that day, Mrs. Clinton’s popularity ratings suffered such a beating, that charging the leader of a Muslim majority nation with fraud topped her list of things to do.
But that wasn’t the only reason.
Mrs. Clinton knew that the assets Qubaisi sold to the Clinton Foundation were purchased using wealth derived from the billions HSBC made through “systemic fraud schemes.” Not only did Lynch help Mrs. Clinton conceal the fact, she knew of the billionaires, arms dealers, terrorists and drug lords who spirited dirty money from the Mideast through the bank (READ HERE).
On the 5th of February 2016, New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman – a longtime Lynch apologist – fined HSBC USD470 million for its role in “abusive mortgage practices.” The fine was a mere slap on the wrist and a ploy to convince the intelligence community that Lynch was serious in combatting instances of fraud involving US financial institutions.
However, the ploy didn’t work.
Four months later, on the 7th of June 2016, Mrs. Clinton was told by Peter that the intelligence community knew of her dealings with Qubaisi and the money he spirited through HSBC in 2005. According to Peter, the former IPIC Managing Director was thought to have helped channel drug money from Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela and the Mideast through the Clinton Foundation.
The information prompted Mrs. Clinton to fix a date for the DoJ announcement in a bid to convince the CIA and FBI that she suspected Qubaisi of conspiring with Najib to spirit ill-gotten wealth through the US financial system. The announcement also allowed her to legitimize the USD700 million the Clinton Foundation transferred to the BVI simply by giving Qubaisi exactly what he wanted.

What was Mahathir’s arrangement with the Clintons?

On the 8th of June 2016, Peter got in touch with Mahathir and told him to arrange the transfer of USD5 million to guarantee a commitment by the Clinton campaign against Najib. The former premier was assured that the DoJ would file the report Matthias Chang had prepared and handed over to McCabe’s team in January. According to Peter, McCabe and Lynch “are on our side.”
Back then, Mrs. Clinton, who was yet to be announced the Democratic presidential nominee for the White House, had long clinched a decisive victory over Bernie Sanders, crushing hopes that the Vermont Senator could alter the course of the Democratic presidential race. Mahathir needed very badly for Mrs. Clinton to win. His American ally, former Secretary of State John Forbes Kerry, told him that a Clinton win would mark the end of Najib’s career as Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Peter assured Mahathir that the DoJ would imply Najib in a conspiracy to defraud Malaysians without actually naming him. In return, Peter needed an assurance from the former premier that the opposition would wage an all-out assault against Najib in the alternate media to impress upon Malaysians that the Prime Minister was Malaysian Official 1 (MO1).
On the 20th of June 2016, Mahathir instructed his right-hand man, Daim Zainuddin, to initiate the transfer of USD5 million through channels linked to the Clinton Foundation (READ HEREHERE andHERE). The money was a ‘donation’ to assist Mrs. Clinton in her campaign against her Democratic contender for the White House, Bernie Sanders. By the 18th of July 2016, Lynch had received a portion of the sum – some USD1.12 million – through a proxy channel linked to the Clinton Foundation.
That, in a nutshell, was Mahathir’s arrangement with the Clintons.
To be continued…
