1066 My Kirkby College Number & All That . . .

1066, well remembered by the British, is considered one of those dates in Medieval England which is difficult to forget. At the start of 1066, England was ruled by Edward the Confessor. By the end of the year, a Norman – William the Conqueror – was king after defeating Edward’s successor, Harold, at the Battle of Hastings. With three kings in one year, a legendary battle in October and a Norman in charge of England, it is little wonder that people rarely forget the year 1066. Many historians view 1066 as the start of Medieval England.

When I was in Kirkby Teachers’ Training College (Liverpool, UK) in 1959/60, I was viewed with much curiosity & interest by the administrative staff, including Principal (Papa) Gurney because of my college number 1066. Though I learned British history in Malaya (then known as), I must confess I wasn’t much of a lover of British history or for that matter any history. My dislike for history was due to the fact, I always got events & dates confused. So I was unaware & oblivious of the tremendous significance that my college number was invoking.

Our history lecturer Mr Kennedy was exceptional good in his field of making history come to life. He taught us mainly on the History of British Malaya & all that was true happenings historically . . . there was no attempt in historical cover-up. History cannot lie! I remember well:

  • the story of Parameswara aka Iskandar Shah (1344 -1414) who fled the island kingdom of Singapore (when it fell to the Kingdom of Majapahit) to establish the Malacca Sultanate in 1402. He was a Hindu, later converted to Muslim.

  • the story of the legendary Admiral Hang Tuah and his 4 sworn brothers – Hang Jebat, Hang Kasturi, Hang Lekir and Hang Lekiu. All five of them for courage & fighting skills shown were appointed as warriors by the Sultan of Malacca. They were in fact Chinese Muslims from China as I later learnt. Sad to say, for political reasons best known to UMNO (the Malays’ political power), their stories are today lost & torn from the pages of the Malaysian history.

  • British Intervention in Malaya 1873. The British first became involved with Malay politics formally in 1771, when Great Britain tried to set up trading posts in Penang, formerly a part of Kedah. The British colonised Singapore in 1819. Here British played its highest order of diplomacy & under the guise of settling peace between rivalling clashes of economic interests, especially in the tin industry then, they very shrewdly came stay as colonial masters. Independence was granted on 31 August 1957.

The commercial landscape of Malaysia was undeniably established by the Chinese, the “most assiduous race in the economic pursuit”. The towns & cities all bear Chinese characteristics even today. Chinese traders & businesses were/are everywhere – factories, tin mining, rubber plantations & just about any commercial activities.

Dato Musa Hitam, a former Deputy Prime Minister, deposed & cast aside by none other than Mahathir, made one little known secret when addressing a group of us who were then involved with the political defunct ADMO group – Alliance Direct Membership Organisation. This organisation was conceived in 1970s with the brilliant idea of doing away with communal/racial politics & to attract professional people from all walks of life irrespective of colour, class or creed. Dato Ghaffar Baba, the DPM, was then our advisor & overseer. We were under the Alliance (present Barison National).

In Ipoh (Perak State) its chairman was Sir James Crawford, a British rubber planter stationed in Sungei Siput, & I was than his secretary for the group. We were attracting a lot of members, English speaking professionals – teachers, lawyers, doctors & business people. From records known, membership in Kuala Lumpur soared even more. We were getting the cream of the population mass.

However, ADMO died a quick political death, when we heard no more of it! It was presumably a political suppression . . . moving too quickly for comfort.

What did Dato Musa Hitam tell us? He said the Chinese were themselves to be blamed right from the beginning. Industrious, diligent & intelligent as the Chinese are, they were overly concentrating on businesses & trade and virtually ignoring the advantage of having political power. With political power comes the control of economic power.

The Malays couldn’t/can’t match the Chinese or the Indians in the economic war, but now they are the political masters, kings & queens.

Historical facts can’t be disputed or gainsaid.

History is an academic discipline.

US Dilemma: Is The Power Obama’s?


By P Chong                                21 April 2010

All this “The TIME 100 Poll: Who Are the World’s Most Influential?” is a silly exercise to say the least, when the truly powerful man or family is really behind the scene – unknown!

The Rothschilds Family

What ramifications & implications do you expect from this statement: “Let me issue & control a nation’s money & I care not who writes the law.” ~ Mayer Amschel Rothschild in 1790.

According to a Weiss Research Inc. recent survey, “more than 90% of their readers believe that Washington will NOT stop its spending or borrowing or money-printing binge in time to avoid a bond market meltdown . . . soaring interest rates . . . and, ultimately, a tragic, double-dip recession.” This is a fast changing world, faster than we can keep up with. Events are being fast-forwarded . . . there is no rewinding or replay. You’ve just got to keep in step, lest you lag behind.

Even according to a report by RT-TV, as high as 80% of the general public do not trust Washington!


Like in a Shakespearean play or the Hollywood show, the world is a stage, and all the politicians are merely acting their parts. In the social-economic-political world of US, who is really running the show? Is it Barrack Hussein Obama, the 44th & current President of the United States of America, the most powerful man on earth? What would your educated guess be – the government such as the Congress or Senate, the people we elected, the Pope, the Secret Elite or Illuminati or Others?

You’d never know through the secret maze of intrigue & conspiracy. It is a truism that powerful men can dangle their political puppets on the string & play according to their tune. Behind that apparent power lurks an even greater power – unseen, unheard without a tinge of publicity or popularity.

Retrospectively, there have been a number of events that seem to just happen – well-known assassination of Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy . . . and the most recent 9/11 disaster & the on-going wars in Iraq & Afghanistan. First we hear the news from the media with all their presentation & explanation. Then the conspiracy theories begin to surface. You go through reading & researching the information. Finally, you’d be left in limbo wondering whether you’d ever know the truth or be perpetually confused.

The truth is you cannot trust the major media owned mainly by the Secret Elite who only tell you what they want you to hear. Their purpose is to confuse & frustrate the public so that we will turn to them for answers. They want to control you in any & every way possible.

Who are the Secret Elite, alternatively known as Illuminati. Some call them the Freemasons or Socialist and some the Government, but the truth is “they are all of these & more.” Is the name “Rothchild” familiar to you? If not, it might interest you to read more about them. It is believed that the Rothschild family used the Illuminati as a means to achieving their goal of world-wide dominance as far back as history goes.

It is not expedient here for me to cover the details which are adequately & abundantly found in the web. The crux of the matter is never to believe all that you read or see in all their entirety. Like it often happens, a lot of junk & scam or hoax get circulated through the electronic mail – so just be wise & cautious.


All that glitters is not gold” ~ the old familiar proverb.

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings)

The Devil tempts you to play,

sets you astray &

then pulls you away!

LATEST UPDATE ON US DEBT CRISIS

Some days you should just stay in bed!
Every American (And Canadian) Needs to Watch This……….
This is  scary!
This is supposedly a NON-PARTISAN video produced by an
accountant, Hal Mason, retired after 27 years with IBM. He looks at
the budget, its revenues and expenses, and very simply illustrates the
problem. Amazingly, we get all the media talking heads blathering and
shouting for hours and never get clarity. This guy provides all the
clarity you need in just a of couple minutes.
