MH370 (9M-MRO) – FAKE NEWS PRODUCERS WELL FINANCED TO ATTEMPT DERAIL THE MALAYSIAN RESPONSE SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

MH370 (9M-MRO) – FAKE NEWS PRODUCERS WELL FINANCED TO ATTEMPT DERAIL THE MALAYSIAN RESPONSE SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

From the start, I cried out, that there are shenanigans, political and media Trojan horses, ‘aviation experts’ and fake news producers and stations and individuals allegedly paid millions to derail the Malaysian response (our response) to the MH370 tragedy!

So expect new out of the blue news narratives, claims, conspiracy episodes, perhaps, even debris planted or found!
More claims and counter claims!

I am told already of the plot and that some of those I had trusted were actually betrayed and two timed me which was disgraceful!

The intelligence community and world is small and it usually comes out!

This is not about a group of international shenanigans well-funded and supported against this Malaysian effort but about an aircraft which we lost March 8th 2014 with 239 people on board and my team and I using our own financial reserves to make a difference!

But they have taken our challenge personally as we stand in their way to fame and fortune of writing books, co-producing movies, tour lectures and huge payouts allegedly one already made in the tune of US$2 Million to discredit me?

But the good to come out of this is there are some among our early critics who now see us for what we really are and sympathize with us and I thank them for communicating with me after all these years!

So watch the media, the TV stations, paid journalistic articles, spook stories where MH370 is, what happened really and other fake news and conspiracy theories coming out in sequence!

And uphold us as well, as we do what is right in the sight of God and man!

JOY & PRAISE AS PALACE ANNOUNCES HRH TENGKU ABDULLAH AS PAHANG SULTAN SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

JOY & PRAISE AS PALACE ANNOUNCES HRH TENGKU ABDULLAH AS PAHANG SULTAN SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

Finally, it is joyous to hear that HRH Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, will be proclaimed as the sixth Sultan of Pahang on Jan 15, replacing Sultan Ahmad Shah, according to palace announcement!

I had alluded to this in my earlier blog posting yesterday.

It has also been widely speculated that HRH Tengku Abdullah, who had been serving as the Regent of Pahang, would succeed his father.

Many indications pointed to this like last night’s shouts of “Daulat Tuanku” (“Long Live the Sultan”) being heard towards the end of a three-hour meeting of the Pahang Royal Council.

That meeting, as I am advised by sources was to seek the council’s consent for Tengku Abdullah, who has served as regent for over two years, to be proclaimed as the Sultan.

The proclamation of Tengku Abdullah as sultan paves the way for him to be appointed the next Yang di-Pertuan Agong, following the decision by Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan to step down as King on Jan 6.

Going by the rotation system, the Sultan of Pahang is next in line.

As I stated yesterday, HRH Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah will make a great 16th Malaysian King bringing his academic and administrative skills, vision, experience and of corporate governance when he leads the nation!

May the ALMIGHTY continue to guide, protect and bless HRH in all these tasks and responsibilities!

 

MALAYSIAN ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE ON WHY HRH TENGKU MAHKOTA OF PAHANG WILL MAKE A SUPER 16th KING.

MALAYSIAN ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE ON WHY HRH TENGKU MAHKOTA OF PAHANG WILL MAKE A SUPER 16th KING.

HRH has many talents that have been tried and tested!

He is also a national and international figure of great respect and adulation globally!

He has always carried himself with such dignity and decorum.

But from where I come from, which is not politics, but from over 40 years in the arena of social work, public policy initiatives, consumerism and working for the betterment of the Malaysian public, I cannot but hail HRH  Tengku Mahkota of Pahang, Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah as a ready and much needed figure to lead Malaysia as our next king!

And why do I say this?

My late step father in Kuantan, was extremely close to the Pahang Royal household and so is my medical doctor, step brother, which assisted my insights!

More importantly during that incident several years ago, I had an opportunity to see and observe HRH in action, as HRH advised all the stakeholders as the state faced a vicious flood situation in 2016!

He was administratively strict, articulate and reminded all parties and stakeholders involved in providing flood relief assistance to potential victims to set aside political differences and focus on providing equal treatment to all.

He advised that no one should be sidelined and the need for strategic coordination, administrative vision and good governance mechanism put in place for the good of everyone.

HRH was also aware of the realities at ground zero in national and state calamities!

He was addressing that of unknown challenges that may crop up in national and state calamities as we cannot have envisaged all issues in a fast changing crisis situation.

He advised all the parties telling them that there could be some weaknesses or delays, but not to turn them into controversies.

That team work was critical!

He was super strict as well as he stated that they should not resort to practicing village politics (“politik kampung”).

HRH advised that there should be no incidents of victims not receiving food, or allowed to register for shelter.

That the rehabilitation and response mitigation process be made simple and depart from bureaucratic fiascos.

I was very moved hearing him state that this was the time to mobilize a total response where all state government agencies, corporate bodies and individuals should come forward to provide assistance in whatever form, to lessen the burden of flood victims!

The operative word HRH emphasized was – ‘flood victims!”

Where HRH stated clearly those victims regardless of their race, religion and background must be assisted!

We pray that through the grace of the Almighty – HRH Tengku Mahkota of Pahang, Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah will be elected Malaysia’s 16th king!

LEAD MALAYSIAN ASEAN APEC CONSUMERIST CALLS FOR AN INTER-CABINET COMMITTEE TO ADDRESS PRICE DISPARITIES AT THE MARKETPLACE.

LEAD MALAYSIAN ASEAN APEC CONSUMERIST CALLS FOR AN INTER-CABINET COMMITTEE TO ADDRESS PRICE DISPARITIES AT THE MARKETPLACE.

It has been over 7 months after GE14 and Malaysian consumers are continuing to struggle with the whole question of cost of living issues, despite claims and counterclaims otherwise!

This is despite the alleged “benign” inflation of 1% in 2018!

Many have since joined in this mantra adding their opinions; some recycled which has to have any impact in the marketplace.

In the last week alone – there have been official statements on the possible increase of costs for public utilities, which include water without any consultation at all with stakeholders!

Is it then time to address these issues and disparity by urging the government to use the newly revived weekly fuel pricing system as an inspiration for policy-makers and consumer intelligentsia to devise a method of controlling the prices of daily essentials and the costs of transport and utilities?

Is it also time for the establishment of a taskforce comprising of representatives from all ministries, government officials and consumerists to study the market, monitor prices, re-look at the availability and distribution of essential consumer goods and critical services, which includes the prices of utilities to take over control from those allegedly playing mischief with the marketplace?

The taskforce should be chaired by the deputy prime minister to give it bite.

As a consumerist with a track record of over 40 years, one appointed by the previous government to the cabinet committee on costs of living and one who actively recommended the weekly fuel pricing system to the Najib administration, which produced stability and results, I believe a similar formula for the pricing of essential goods would, apart from ensuring a fair market, keep consumers informed of price changes and give them an understanding of the reasons behind such changes.

For example, when the price of fish or vegetables goes up in bad weather, or the sudden price increase or shortage in meat, eggs and other consumables the public could learn of this from information given by the proposed panel who will then provide advisory on a response.

The same with cost escalation on public utilities, housing, transport, healthcare and education to cite the core needs!

Consumers would be delighted as all they seek is up to date information why there are disparities and unaccountable prices runaways and the proposed intervention undertaken by the government to stabilize he situation.

They will also be happy that the government of the day is taking these huge challenges seriously with an executive taskforce monitoring the marketplace and the behavior of stakeholders, the latter comprising of suppliers and retailers could not raise prices at whim because of the monitoring done by the panel.

And the punitive sanctions that awaits those abusing the system which incudes the suspension or blacklisting of one’s business license!

It is time to declare war against those who are manipulating the marketplace!
