TTF: The Malaysian Observer is right (see below). Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak is as strong as he can ever get. Now, there is a very good reason for this.
That reason has to do with a fundamental flaw in the strategy Pakatan Harapan has adopted in its bid to wipe Barisan Nasional off the map come the 14th general election (GE14). Let me explain:
If you were to embark on a mission – any mission – to do something, the first thing you would do is to come up with a plan of action to ensure that the mission is successful. To come up with such a plan, you would need to brainstorm with all members of your organisation before finalising some strategies agreeable to all within the organisation in question.
Now, the blueprint Pakatan Harapan is currently using was contrived and put on paper by Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his men back when he wasn’t on good terms with Lim Kit Siang. As a matter of fact, Pakatan Harapan had not even come into existence yet at the time the blueprint was finalised. Today, the DAP is trying to accommodate that very blueprint into its own plan of action and is finding it difficult to adjust.
The reason being, the DAP’s strategy has always been based on a campaign of lies, whereas Mahathir’s strategy was always based on the element of surprise. When the former premier first came up with his strategy, he was sure Najib’s days were numbered, as his past experience with Pak Lah told him that the government of the day would succumb to pressure by him if it were bombarded with issues it could not anticipate.
But the strategy failed
Unlike Pak Lah, Najib was able to anticipate each and every of Mahathir’s moves thanks to his team of media advisors. Now that the former premier’s strategy has been adopted by the DAP, the Prime Minister is also able to anticipate each of Emperor Lim’s lies a million times better than he ever could before. That has weakened the DAP, for the simple reason that the government gets the truth out even before the senior Lim has a chance to lie.
It is too late for Pakatan to come up with a brand new strategy. With all the infighting and disagreements among leaders within the coalition’s component parties, there is no way in hell they could ever brainstorm and agree on a common strategy in time for the upcoming 14th general election (GE14).

As 2017 draws to a close, we can still see Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak finishing out the year the same way he started it; active.
Even after delivering an inspiring address at Umno’s 71st annual general assembly; the Prime Minister did not take a break. As many have become aware, the United States President, Donald Trump in a move that surprised many heads of state around the world said that U.S would establish its Embassy in Jerusalem. Such a move effectively recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
During the Umno general assembly Prime Minister told the attendees that Turkish President Erodogan called him and asked him to attend as Malaysia’s voice is important.
Seeking the attendance of Prime Minister Najib further shows the respect and trust that he has earned around the world.
But the Prime Minister standing up for those are voiceless is nothing new. All one need do is think about how Prime Minister Najib and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang stood together to condemn the treatment of Rohingya’s in Myanmar.
Although the two men working together on a common cause drew criticism from the DAP-led Pakatan opposition; the two leaders did not let such criticism deter them from doing what is right for the good of the ummah.
Still, Najib’s work did not stop with standing up for social injustices.
In areas of the economy, Prime Minister Najib has worked to bring in foreign investment from regional neighbors as well as those from other locations
But all that was just the icing on proverbial cake so to speak. When one reads the Prime Minister’s budget speech a bigger picture can be seen of what Najib has been doing for all Malaysians.
It would have been easy for the Prime Minister to take his foot off the gas pedal even after accomplishing half of what was achieved, but he didn’t do it. In order for Malaysia to have even greater success and prosperity in 2018, the Prime Minister has to maintain the momentum that has already been built up.
Why is that important?
It is important because Najib’s experience has taught him that finishing the year strong will create even more success for Malaysians in 2018!
