The Coalition for Free and Fair Elections or BERSIH and soon to be aka BULLSHIT 3.0, chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan "admitted to Bersih receiving some money from two US organisations — the National Democratic Institute, NDI and Open Society Institute, OSI — for other projects which she stressed were unrelated to the July 9 march."
Believe what you want but the NDI or National Democratic Institute for interfering in International Affairs had this in their Malaysian Current Political Situation -
"In November 2006, NDI conducted a series of single-party training sessions on strategic communications and messaging. NDI conducted a workshop for the fledgling Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (BERSIH) that focused on improving the action plans of each participating organization or political party in accomplishing their objectives.
NDI's program for Malaysia is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
Ah! The NED or National Endowment for Democracy, "In a multitude of ways, NED meddles in the internal affairs of numerous foreign countries by supplying funds, technical know-how, training, educational materials, computers, faxes, copiers, automobiles, and so on, to selected political groups, civic organizations, labor unions, dissident movements, student groups, book publishers, newspapers, other media, etc . NED typically refers to the media it supports as "independent" despite the fact that these media are on the US payroll."
Yes, the same NED with "The Myths of ‘Democracy Assistance’: U.S. Political Intervention in Post-Soviet Eastern Europe" and now in Malaysia as explicated above -
"The methods of manipulating foreign elections have been modified since the heyday of CIA cloak and dagger operations, but the general objectives of imperial rule are unchanged. Today, the U.S. government relies less on the CIA in most cases and more on the relatively transparent initiatives undertaken by such public and private organizations as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Freedom House, George Soros’s Open Society, and a network of other well-financed globetrotting public and private professional political organizations, primarily American, operating in the service of the state’s parallel neoliberal economic and political objectives."
Oh, oh, not only NED but also George Soros' OSI, eh Madam Ambiga.
In the above article, the following excerpt is a glaringly accurate description of Madam Ambiga and her not too strange bedfellow, Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim,
Indeed, “democracy assistance” is a growth industry. The election of “free market” politicians and parties is the gateway through which all sorts of international carpetbaggers and con men, including electioneering experts, are certain to follow.Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim the “free market” politician of the NED says "Defending free markets has at its core a conviction of the necessity to defend freedom." and "Supporting freedom and free markets is not an academic issue, but rather a practical way to enhance human well-being around the world."
The Brother and his dancing partner, Sister Ambiga dances to the tune of the NED, who "By dealing with private groups abroad rather than foreign governments, NED invariably ends up playing favorites, engendering strife within the very democratic movements it seeks to assist." - Loose Cannon: The National Endowment for Democracy.
So, when the Sister "Bersih 3.0 necessary due to ‘haste’ in holding polls, Ambiga tells EC" and the Brother, "Back Bersih rally, Anwar tells voters.", those who have never voted will swallow BULLSHIT 3.0 hook, line and sinker.
For them who have never voted, we who have voted will tell you, don't fall to these two cons.
For some insights into how voting is done, checked and balanced, read OutSyed The Box, "Part 2 : Tak bersih - Lim Chee Wee" - Remember it is not a sin to speak the truth.
While there's NOTHING TO HIDE: Election Commission calls Bersih to tender evidence, "Panel: Back claims of electoral fraud", once in a blue moon from The Malaysian Insider, "Bersih 3.0 is jumping the gun"
