“Rumsfeld has beneficial interests in some of the mines, as do Blair, Cheney and a Singaporean stockbroker who goes by the name of Danny Lee. The former US Secretary of Defence is also a leading patron of the HF from which Anwar and his wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, derived USD5 million between the years 1999 and 2000. Unbeknown to many, it was Rumsfeld who helped arrange funds that led to the establishment of the Free Anwar Campaign (FAC) on the 27th of July 2000″
THE THIRD FORCE
On the 29th of January 2002, Tan Sri Vincent Tan sought recourse to the Kuala Lumpur High Court to stop an ex-journalist from damaging his business concerns. Three years later, a bus company in Australia triggered action pursuant to law against the same person for sullying its reputation and coercing its directors. Blackmail, extortion, bribery, defamation – these are but some of the transgressions many from around the world attribute to this one fellow, a Malaysian-Indian currently residing in Sydney, Australia.
Who is he?
Well, here’s introducing to you Ganesh Sahathevan, a man who went down south chasing his dreams but ended on his hands and knees cleaning town busses instead. A seeker of fame, he found himself jobless right after attempting extortion and blackmail on the directors of Sydney Busses, a company he accused of providing toxic chemicals to its cleaners. But it wasn’t long before he got to know an interest group from the United States (US) that specialised in regime changes and acts of espionage.
Thereafter, his fortunes saw a steep incline as he became the proud owner of multiple blogs, two of which were dedicated to criminalising Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak. One of these blogs, sahathevan.blogspot.com,was blacked out by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for multiple violations of Malaysian law. The other, realpolitikasia.blogspot.my, just released an article that brought fresh allegations against the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Last Friday, Ganesh implied that US president Donald J Trump granted himself new powers following an announcement made by the country’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. By highlighting select excerpts from statements issued by the duo, the blogger further implied that the granting of those powers had to do with assets worth over USD1 billion that the Department of Justice (DoJ) seized pursuant to its kleptocracy initiative. On the 20th of July 2016, the department announced that the assets may have been purchased using money stolen from 1MDB.
Is that the truth?
Of course not.
As a matter of fact, you needn’t even ask me that question. All you need to do is head over to the official site of the White House and study the Executive Order Trump signed last Thursday, the 21st of December 2017. For the record, this is the order that granted Trump the very powers Ganesh made a helluva fuss about. Comb through the order, and see for yourselves if the names ‘1MDB’ or ‘Najib’ appear. If they don’t, how could it have anything to do with assets the DoJ seized?
See the lie?
Still, what’s the deal with the seized assets?
As one of our patrons pointed out previously (READ HERE), not only did the FBI under the direction of James Comey – who was fired by Trump on multiple counts of misfeasance – ignore Malaysian law enforcement agencies, it failed even to get in touch with 1MDB or any of its attendant concerns when recommending that the DoJ seize the assets. Just so that you know, the assets were seized following complaints lodged by a Malaysian residing in the US along with lawyer Matthias Chang and Dato’ Seri Kharuddin Abu Hassan.
Ironically, their testimonies were never included in the DoJ’s 2016 and 2017 reports. That effectively turned the reports to a set of fictitious documents founded on the grossest of errors, wilfully contrived to deceive and mislead those to whom they were addressed. The element of fraud is brought to fore the minute one considers that the FBI had yet to complete probes into the complaints at the time the assets were seized.
But that’s not all.
The fact that the DoJ has yet to name 1MDB officials implied in its reports is highly irregular and unprecedented in American history. The fact that it chose to announce the seizures on live television speaks of deliberate attempts by quarters linked to the past and current US Attorney Generals to shame the administration of Najib Razak, implied as being Malaysian Official 1 (MO1).
So Ganesh is a DoJ agent then?
Ganesh was paid to confuse voters ahead of the 14th general election (GE14). This fellow is a serial traducer whose job is to assist a US interest group defame leaders whose regimes the group intends to bring down. The person arranging the bucks for Ganesh is a journalist who goes by the name of Ginny Stein, a correspondent for the Australian Broadcast Corporation (ABC) currently assigned to the Philippines.
Now, the ABC is no stranger to controversy. On the 28th of March 2016, the network broadcast the State of Fear (WATCH HERE), a documentary program implicating Najib in the murder of former Deputy Public Prosecutor Kevin Morais (READ FULL STORY HERE). The work of fiction was aired by Four Corners, a current affairs program whose Linton Basser was paid USD200,000 just to anchor that one episode.
Ganesh was paid half that amount.
Are you serious?
Like Basser, Ginny obtained funds to pay Ganesh from the same money pot that Dr Mahathir Mohamad scraped dough from to bribe the ABC. The pot is managed by Abbas ‘Eddy’ Farouq, a man who had a huge hand in the way the State of Fear was edited.
Yesterday, it was Linton Basser. Today, its Ganesh Sahathevan. Tomorrow, there will be another fellow popping up from out of nowhere with incredible claims against Najib and his administration. Dig deep, and you will find that this next fellow will also be tied one way or the other to Mahathir and his cohorts. In Ginny’s case, she actively consorts with Clare Rewcastle Brown, the Chief Editor of Sarawak Report.
And therein the irony.
You see, Clare told the whole world that she does what she does to champion justice. Yet, she has not exposed Ginny’s role in diverting media attention from the blood money several US corporations are paying families of abductees killed in Johannesburg mines. Not only is Ginny paid big bucks for the role, she helps mediate new deals between South African mine operators and her paymasters, including the biggest of them all, Tony Blair.
Clare is well aware of all this. As a matter of fact, she herself consorts with a group of Emirati businessmen who deal extensively with the owners of those mines. She knows all about the mysterious deaths of the abductees and the millions people like Blair are paying Ginny. Yet, she has done nothing to bring Ginny to justice. Tell me, is the Sarawak Report Chief Editor herself earning the kind of bucks Ginny is getting from her sponsors?
Blood money, anyone?
Who own the mines?
The same people Daim Zainuddin deals with.
Now, we’re talking persons with extensive links to the Clinton Foundation and a group of TPG financiers led by Paul Wolfowitz (World Bank President, 1st of June 2005 – 1st of July 2007), Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney (US Vice President, 20th January 2001 – 20th January 2009), the Washington based Heritage Foundation (HF), the Soros-financed International Crisis Group (ICG) and the Cheney-run Foundation for the Future.
Rumsfeld has beneficial interests in some of the mines, as do Blair, Cheney and a Singaporean stockbroker who goes by the name of Danny Lee. The former US Secretary of Defence is also a leading patron of the HF from which Anwar’s wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, derived USD5 million between the years 1999 and 2000. Unbeknown to many, it was Rumsfeld who helped arrange funds that led to the establishment of the Free Anwar Campaign (FAC) on the 27th of July 2000.
Yes, Rumsfeld prefers to work behind the veils of scrutiny and is not known to most of the FAC’s patrons to this day. Weeks prior to Raja Petra Kamarudin’s (RPK) detention by the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), he got Ginny to link the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) with a couple of jihadist organisations spread across the greater Arab World.
Whatever on earth for?
To sully Anwar’s reputation, of course.
As much as this may surprise you, Rumsfeld planned to draw controversy towards the sacked deputy premier as a measure of contingency should the latter turn rogue. And there’s nothing really odd about this – the Americans always believe in lacing their stooges with controversy to render them beholden to their whims. Back in 2001, Rumsfeld decided to zero in on RPK to trigger some alarms in the CIA.
The person who brought Anwar into the IIIT was none other than Jamal Barzinji, an Iraqi-American businessman who already was on the CIA’s radar. Days after being appointed Secretary of Defence, Rumsfeld got the agency to flag Barzinji as a Hamas mole. When the CIA discovered that Mahathir was about to zero in on members of the FAC, Ginny told the then director of Central Intelligence, George J Tenet, that RPK was the webmaster of a site run by the FAC and that the blogger was himself an agent of Hamas.
That immediately drew the CIA’s attention to Anwar, who Rumsfeld insisted was “under control and in no way a threat to the US.” But quietly, he got Ginny to float the idea that RPK was acting on Anwar’s instructions to trigger bloodshed in central Kuala Lumpur. Although we at TTF are unclear at this point if this had anything to do with the blogger’s arrest, we’re told that the then Inspector General of Police (IGP), Tan Sri Norian Mai, informed him that his arrest had something to do with his “links to an international terror organisation.”
RPK has confirmed this.
TTF has since discovered that the person Ginny tasked with sullying his name (in the later years) was none other than Ganesh Sahathevan, the very extortionist who attempted blackmail on Sydney Busses in 2005. Ginny took the heat of Ganesh by helping settle some of his outstanding legal fees. In return, she tasked him with destroying RPK, the IIIT and the Malaysian based International Institute for Islamic Thought and Civilisation (ISTAC) by linking them with Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic-Jihad (PIJ) and even the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
And today, Ganesh wants you to believe that Trump is after Najib.
