    Jakarta Globe Swallows It Whole – 'Asylumer' Sob Story, No Shred of Proof! 

    I really do wonder at the pathetic standard of reporting in the local English-language media.

    He admits he came from Iran via Turkey and Abu Dhabi, but didn’t apparently contemplate seeking asylum in either of those countries. Nor does he aim to stop here in Indonesia.


    Well, maybe because he’s smart enough to know that the Turks and Gulf Arabs wouldn’t like having him there, any more than, as he says himself, the Iranians did – and maybe he has heard that every bludger-boat arrival in Australia gets free lodgings and three squares a day! 

    Bloody arrogance!

    And as for the JG, they just repeat whatever he says, despite no grain of proof for anything he says of his adventures prior to coming here, where he’s been capering about with fake documents and people smugglers – whom he could help the cops nail, if he’d a whiff of civic conscience.

    Mind you, he says some cops were in on the racket!  

    ‘Do you have money or should we deport you?’ I said, ‘I have money, don’t deport me’, and they said, ‘OK, $400, put it here and we will help you.’ After I paid them, they gave me a visa.




    Why don’t the intrepid JG hacks get those allegedly crooked cops’ descriptions from this undesirable alien and start doing some real investigative journalism? 


    If the JG scribblers are so partisan for these illegals, they should take some under their wing and provide food and accommodation for poor little Ghulab and his bludger buddies! 


    Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Marty ‘The Mouth’ Natalegawa is at it again, bleating more loudly than an Aussie sheep, unable to deny that Tony Abbott’s policies have worked successfully, stemming the flow and saving lives, but still whining instead of offering constructive help.

    Even the JG reporter has to admit where the fault lies.  Asylum seekers have for years used Indonesia as a transit point to cross to Australia…

    But will Marty shoulder the blame?

    And note the truth that shines out despite all the JG bias shown in the frst piece we posted on. Australia’s hardline policy of towing boatloads of would-be refugees back to Indonesia…

    • marty
    • ooooooooooo
    • N.B.
    • Not TO Indonesia, but BACK TO Indonesia!
    • Who let them set sail on an illegal voyage of intrusion into a friendly neighbour’s seas?
    • But when that neighbour does what it has every right to do, turn them BACK…whine, bleat, rant.

    The same report explains also that Oz common-sense on crimmigrants is actually helping Indonesia too - The UN refugee agency said last week the number of asylum seekers registering in Indonesia had dropped dramatically since December, from around 100 a day to 100 a week.

    So let’s change his nickname from Marty the Mouth to Marty the Ingrate. 

    PS -I just noticed, the second article quoted also appears in hear identical form in the Jakarta Post – can’t these allegedly Jakarta media even write stories about their own country’s foreign policies? Instead they’ve borrowed it from Agence France presse – pathetic, pathetic, pathetic!

    Labour Hoping Roma Votes Will Stop UKIP? 


    Figures across the political spectrum soon posted tweets opposing the campaign, and accused the party of scare-mongering. There were also comparisons to posters released by the far-right British National Party which carried the slogan: “British Jobs for British Workers…”

    It might have been more accurate an attack if the pinkos had accused UKIP of stealing LABOUR slogans! 


    But what is REALLY disgraceful is how Labour is turning to alien immigrants to interfere in a British election!


    Labour MP Mike Gapes said they were “racist” and appealed to “all decent British Commonwealth and EU citizens” to register to vote in May’s polls.


    . Yes, that’s another ‘benefit’ of the UK’s subjugation to the EUSSR – all those Roma parasites you read about messing up what remains of England’s (and Scotland’s and Ulster’s and Wales’) green and pleasant land?




    • o
    • They enjoy not only whatever welfare can be milked from the public purse but the right to vote for whichever candidates they think will best ease their snouts deeper into the tax trough!
    • ooooooooooooooooooooooo
    • snouts_in_the_trough
    • oooooooooooooooooooo

    But even Mr. Gapes hasn’t so far descended to inciting hatred. 


    • oooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    • Former Conservative minister Lord Debden: “UKIP stands for the worst in human beings: our prejudice, selfishness, and fear.”

    I had never heard of this frantic ranter!

    But it transpires his secret identity is John Selwyn Gummer, about whom sensible  Tories used to sing (a la Boy George) ‘Gummer Bummer Gummer,Bummer, Gummer Chameleon’ back in the Eighties.



    For even then, as Chairman of the Conservative party, his political colours were never quite fixed, blue or pink…and now he’s more of a green!

    Given his pro-panic views on so-called ‘global warming,’ there was much amusement as well as indignation, when he was appointed at Cast-Iron Cameron’s instigation to run the ‘Independent Committee on Climate Change.’

    Happily, one of the more responsible British media exposed exactly how independent that committee is!

    However, even in his glory days (!) he was a joke, so let’s just politely suggest he stuff his abusive rhetoric where global warming effects never shine!

    JIS Molestors – No Sickly-Soft Sentences, Please! 

    While attention is currently focused on Jakarta International School’s handling of the case, people are also concerned about how the perpetrators will fare if duly convicted. We posted on that petition demanding tougher sentencing last week A Petition – 5-15thn tidaklah cukup!   and last night on the demand by Pak Ihsan for ‘severe’ punishment.


    JIS Scandal – What They Did ‘Would Even Make An Adult Vomit!’ 


    It’s not often I find myself in agreement with the fanatic Mayor of Banda Aceh, Illiza, but she can’t be faulted with her call for life in prison for such wicked crimes.  


    ppp_tetapkan_illiza_kembali_dampingi_mawardy_nurdin_147 Mayor Illiza


    Incidentally, she was talking about the latest case of child molestation in the news, a cop accused up there in the so-called ‘Verandah of Mecca.’

    But looking back to last year, we must beware of sickly-soft sentencing, such as happened with a Deputy School Head in East Jakarta. 

    The culprit was a man named Taufan, formerly (thanks be!) Deputy Head of SMA Negeri 22, and he was found guilty. Although the prosecutor had called for seven years, the molestor got off with a mere four years and a fine.



    Ludicrously, the reported mitigating circumstances for the defendant were that he behaved politely , never been involved in legal cases , and had been a teacher at SMAN.




    So if the people eventually brought to court for sodomising that JIS kindergarten boy somehow manage not to spit or swear during their trial, have no previous convictions and have done the jobs they’re paid for, they can expect similarly spineless sentencing?




    Four years for a creep convicted of forcing a schoolgirl repeatedly to perform oral sex!?!

    That’s not justice – that’s a sick joke.

    And so is any system that metes out such moronic sentences.

    Chances are, of course, that with the widespread publicity, including even comment from the Presidential Palace,  the involvement of embassies ( because so many  expat families use JIS) and a multi-million law-suit in the pipe-line, somewhat more salutory sentencing might result.




    I’m all for the harshest penalties available, and regret the absence of capital punishment as an option in any such cases.

    But I do wonder what that girl’s family in East jakarta must be feeling as they read the current headlines.

    JIS Scandal – What They Did ‘Would Even Make An Adult Vomit!’ 

    One commenter asked me yesterday what has become of the female accomplice sought in the JIS rape case.

     I have no team of roving reporters, but I do try to keep readers up to speed with what’s going on – not least because I doubt the due diligence of some Jakarta journalists, although others do a pretty good job.

    What appears in local Bahasa Indonesia media does not always get into the English-language media, so here’s an update on the woman sought for her role in the crime.

    According to the Head of the Task Force for Child Protection, M. Ihsan,  the female suspect acted as the brains behind the abuse of the little boy.

    •  Ihsan
    • “If the child urinated untidily, he was punished. On each occasion, she decided the penalty, ” said Ihsan. The boy was ordered to perform sexual acts on a male suspect…
    • oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    The suspects, male or female, took pleasure in doing this. “She derived her own satisfaction when sentencing him . The acts demanded of the boy would be eough to make even any adult who heard about it want to vomit.”
    Ihsan urged law enforcement to punish the female suspect severely.

    So is this woman in custody or not? No clear news so far, but…





    String the bitch up, if she’s convicted. Along with the SOBs she aided and abetted.

    UK MultiCult Poll – It All Depends! 

    A poll by the often reliable Lord Ashcroft was published, deliberately timed, it seems, to mark the anniversary of Enoch Powell’s famous ‘rivers of blood’ speech, which of course he never made.


    • liberal-media-bias
    • ……………………………………
    • I have said often, but keep having to say again and again, that Powell, the greatest PM the UK never had, used no such phrase. Its constant repetition by journalists (who undoubtedly know they are lying) indicates as best as anything could the poisonous dishonesty that permeates the ‘British’ media.

    Enoch quoted the ancient Sybilline prophecy which foresaw the waters of Rome’s River Tiber foaming blood-red,  Rome entering a terrible time of troubles.

    And by God he was spot on.

    When helping parents fight the imposition of a multicult curriculum on their local school, years ago, I cautioned one dad who wanted to speak in the debate. He had prepared a speech using the term ‘multiracial’ where he meant to use ‘multicultural.’

    I pointed out that we had no quarrel with people of different racial origins who had embraced a British identity.

    Plenty of those GOOD immigrants existed then, and today, people like those I’ve mentioned before, those two UKIP candidates, one from Sri Lanka, one a black man in Croydon, guys a different colour from me but just as true in their allegiance to Queen and Country as any – more so than some Lab/Lib/Con MPs, I’d say.


    • multicult3
    • =================================

    Of course it’s iniquitous, nothing less describes forcing girls to sit separately from boys on the class-room, and it’s downright wicked to have them all listen to a traitor ‘cleric’ who endorses sectarian terror gangs.

    But that’s multiculturalism!

    If you invite aliens in and say there’s no need for them to abandon their barbarism, whether its pernicous nonsense like ‘honour-killings,’ or polygamy, or child-marriage, or forced marriage, or female circumcision, or primitive inheritance laws that discriminate against women, that’s ENTIRELY RIGHT AND PROPER – if you’re sincerely in favour of treating all cultures with equal respect.


    On the other hand, it’s entirely wrong and improper if you’re -

    A    a decent human being


    B    British (or Canadian, or American, or Australian)


    • out with them
    • =======================
    • That’s what Enoch surely foresaw, and why multicult must go.

    “I Trust Our Teachers!” JIS Principal – But Foreign Embassies Now Actively Involved! 

    Those media represented at the JIS press conference are filing in gaps in our previous report, which was based on Trans TV’s afternoon bulletin.

    Principal Tim Carr defended alterations to the toilet area where the alleged child-rape occurred, changes which he said had been carried out in response to police advice on improving safety.–ini-tanggapan-kepala-sekolah-jis 

    This comes after the victim’s family lawyer complained of tampering with the crime scene.


      Tim Carr


    Having announced that JIS has completed manuals and protocols for students if out of the classroom to go to the bathroom, as well as guidelines for teachers who will be monitoring, the Principal declared that “I trust our teachers. There’s no teacher suspected of involvement in this case.”  -

    I hadn’t heard of any such suspicion!

    But Tim Carr’s assertion is nevertheless welcome. “There is no reason for students to be afraid of our teachers. They are good people and loving to the students.”  

    He also issued a downright denial of any knowledge of any other case of sexual molestation at JIS. “There are only allegations, unproven. So far, that’s mere conjecture!”


    •  Lydia- 

    Well, so much for the outburst by the Ministry’s Ms. Lydia last week! 

    Having already pledged to work with the Indonesian authorities, however, Mr. Carr now tells us that JIS is setting up its OWN investigative team, comprising ( among others presumably) foreign diplomats!

    Our team is to work closely with the Embassies of the United States , Australia and the UK.”

    THIS was the one big surprise, I’d say.


    UK embassy


    Exactly what are these embassies meant to investigate? The crime-prevention aspect? If so, are the local police content to be side-lined, as that’s how it may be perceived?  If it’s school hiring policies, what’s the diplomatic input going to be? Intensified vetting, a la MI5/6?

    I have no idea.

    But it should be made absolutely clear that the results of this investigation will be published in full.




    Today’s press conference was a welcome step forward, but it took them long enough.

    Total transparency is a MUST from now on.

    STOP PRESS Jakarta International School Boss Holding Press Conference, NOW! 

    STOP  PRESS  -  JIS  has been holding a press conference in the Hotel Sultan, even as I typed this. Report later.

    Well, I just watched on Trans TV what were presumably the highlights of that JIS press conference, and Mr. Carr appeared satisfied that there were no other cases to talk about. He’s going to meet with the Ministry, where Ms/ Lidya will no doubt bring up the fact that SHE has heard differently.
    I find this mildly confusing, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

    Anyway, before that press conference, I had written what was to be today’s post on the subject, which I leave unamended. for your inspection.


    The JIS scandal as I predicted is not abating but threatens to spread to other international schools, with the alleged rape victim’s family lawyer ‘recommending the evaluation of other international schools.’  Attorney O C Kaligis . He ‘s gunnig for the closure of the JIS kindergarten too, with accusations that the school management ‘had tampered with the crime scene!’


    I have tried to remain objective, but the general mood out there seems to be reflected in the Jakarta Post’s latest report, which describes JIS as displaying a muted and standoffish reaction to the case.

    That’s hard to disagree with, although it’s a great shame that the Education Ministry’s Director General (Early age education programs) Lydia Freyani Hawadi had to blurt out some personal prejudices against how normal teens dress. One wonders if she expects them to don head-shrouds and follow the moronic advice of the MUI that ‘curves should not be shown.


    Mind you, JIS seem determined, having found themselves in a bit of a hole, to dig relentlessly, if what Ms. Lydia says is true.

    “Every time our ministry tries to enter the school for its evaluation, they seem to be very evasive, telling us to come back later or that they are holding a private meeting. They have been very uncooperative with the government.”

    More importantly, the victim’s mum is indignant too at the JIS reaction, an sms to her husband. . .”My husband is furious that the school only sent a text message explaining themselves. If they wanted to explain themselves, they should have met us in person.”

    Can’t quarrel with that. The ball is plainly and firmly in the court of Tim Carr, the JIS Prinicipal. He incurred a lot of criticism when he made off sharpish instead of answering questions at his press conference. Time he appeared on TV here and was obliged to tell us all if it’s true that this is not the first case of its kind, and if so, why did nobody hear that till this latest monstrous situation.

    Canada – Law Societies Mincing to Gaystapo Drum? 

    You may remember the saga of Trinity Western University, a new college in BC which ran into pinko flack for its insistence on Christian standards of behaviour among its student body.

    Having read about those requirements, I have to admit that TWU might exclude my good self, given that beer, wine and spirits are banned!




    But that’s their business, not the damn courts, and certainly not a pack of leftist lawyers, some of whom make a small, no, a large fortune from taking up cases of undesirables, like illegal immigrants etc.

    Again, that may be deplorable to conservatives like me, but that’s those lawyers’ right and I wouldn’t expect them to be disbarred from practicing law as a consequence, though the idea has a certain appeal. 

    Once TWU beat off the flack from the intolerant left-lib elements and got going, the creepos opened up a second front against educational freedom via various Provincial Law Societies, which I had naively assumed were professional bodies not animated by political prejudices.

    Although several of them have indeed acted responsibly and approved TWU Law School graduates to be articled to the relevant provincial bars, three hold-outs remain, Ontario almost predictably these days, but also Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.


    According to LSN, Ontario’s Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) are due to vote on April 24th.

    The reasoning -if you can dignify partisan propaganda with such a word – is fascinating. Here’s an example from BC, and you can see quickly why the BC Law Society voted such drivel down by 20 votes to 6 this month. 


    The West Coast Women’s Legal Education Action Fund argued that a university that practises discrimination against gay or transgendered students and faculty should not be permitted to grant law degrees on an equal footing with other law schools that don’t practise such discrimination.


    If a sound understanding of all legal matters is imparted, it should not matter whether the institution likes or doesn’t like any existing laws. Laws can change, in a democracy. And if a Christian law school ‘discriminates’ for or against people on relevant grounds, that’s as it should be.

    “TWU’s discriminatory policy effectively excludes LGBTQ students from access to the benefits of a legal education at the university,” said Kasari Govender, LEAF’s executive director, in a written statement.

    But in fact TWU does NOT ‘discriminate’ against anyone prepared to abide by their rules – even homos can study there. All that’s asked of said homos is that they don’t start playing grab-ass – and the same proscription applies to normal students.

    No sexual shenanigans, please.

    This would have led to massive expulsions from my alma mater, but then that was a secular university with no morality codes, which is the whole point – TWU is religious and requires students to comply with their ethos. 

    And the same piffle is being served up in poor old Ontario.

    Mark Berlin, a member of the Ontario Bar Association’s board of directors and a professor at McGill University, called the covenant “blatantly discriminatory.”

    Ontario and Nova Scotia Law Socieities invited submissions from the public but the deadline has now passed for those.

    However,  there is still an opportunity for people to make known their views to NB’s Law Society.

    Since Ontario accepted many from out-of-province, I hope NB do the same, and thus urge Canadian readers from sea to sea – and overseas – to communicate, politely, on this key issue of religious liberty.

    Here’s the emai contact. 


    Like I say, these lawyers won’t want to hear about why you find the ‘gay’ agenda repugnant.

    Keep to the point, that in a (relatively) free country, any college should be free to provide courses which cover the subject properly, and students who take and pass these courses fairly and squarely should not be subjected to discrimination on political or ideological grounds by bodies whose duty it is to examine professional qualifications.
