    Can Anti-Ikhwan Mogul Clean Up Euronews? 

    We have picked up on the bias engrained in Euronews before, engrained and unchecked by its ‘commitment’ to objective reporting.

    That biased bint has not been disciplined, much less dismissed, despite injecting her own sarcastic anti-Western prejudice into that was supposed to be an impartial report on the Middle East.

    Euronews’ Or Eurabian Pravda? Anti-UKIP, Anti-USA – Brazen Bias! 

    By chance, EUOBserver this week revealed how much EUSSR cash – YOUR cash, if you’re a Brit or citizen of any other subjugated province of the Brussels Empire – has been splurged on this Pravda-esque project already.

    No less than TWENTY FIVE million Euros!


    foreign money


    And that’s just last year’s largesse.

    That figure emerged in a report on the station’s peculiar money-raising methods.

    But interestingly, there are grounds for hope, though EUObs doesn’t look at it that way.

    On 26 February, it said it is in exclusive talks with Naguib Sawiris for a €35 million capital injection in return for a 53 percent stake.


    No wonder Islamists hate him – he appreciates women who look like women! If Sawiris’ political judgement is as smart as his taste in ladies, he should be a winner!.


    • The 60-year old Copt is Egypt’s third richest man, with a personal fortune of some $3 billion. He is chairman of the Orascom telecom group, Egypt’s largest private employer, and owns two Egyptian TV channels, ONTV and ONTV Live.

    He’s also a politician. He’s a vocal critic of the Muslim Brotherhood. ..

    And so he should be, if he’s a Copt.


    • devil destroyedikhwanul-muslimin
    • ==================================================

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a menace, to Copts especially but to religious liberty in general.

    Egypt’s Christians, despite the overthrow of the savage sectarian regime of Morsi, are still victims of primitive Islamist barbarism. We saw that only last week. Minya church commemorating beheaded Egyptians attacked  Daily News Egypt-29 Mar 2015

    And Sawiris himself was threatened with one of those cretinous kangaroo courts. Egypt businessman Naguib Sawiris faces blasphemy trial …  9 Jan 2012 – Egyptian Christian billionaire Naguib Sawiris is to face a blasphemy trial over a tweet of Mickey and Minnie Mouse in conservative Islamic attire…

    The Egyptian billionaire says he’s not interested in using his potential stake to influence news coverage.





    But if Sawiris’ millions can bring the anti-Western elements in Euronews to heel, so much the better. He certainly has a sensible outlook.  He is quoted in the FT as saying he believes more in an eye for an eye than in turning the other cheek


    With barbarous enemies like the MB, that’s the only way forward. Pity Obama doesn’t share this wise attitude!

    Jakarta – Fanatics Fume at Shut-Down of Sectarian Websites! 

    Always a joy to catch up with the latest babbling of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) who are now accusing President Jokowi of ‘suppressing freedom of the press.’ This serious charge arises from the government’s move to close Islamic media sites spreading radicalism in Indonesia.


    Having recently experienced symptoms of mild anxiety about Jokowi’s stance on various matters, this is encouraging. The President is lucky, of course, because unlike European leaders who show interest in fighting subversion, he does not have the decadent creeps on the European Court to hamper him on spurious ‘rights’ grounds.

    Obviously porn is much more dangerous than these public-spirited citizens


    It looks like the IslamoNazi thug gang are even missing ex-President SBY, whom the whiteshirt sectarians’ fuhrer once dismissed as a ‘banci‘ – that’s a transvestite hooker, BTW – because they nostalgically note that back in the good old days it wasn’t like this!


    • jokowi-kowi Jokowi



    In SBY’s era, the Ministry blocked gambling and porn sites – in the Jokowi era, they’re blocking Islamic sites and leaving porn alone.

    Jakarta Minister Can Ban A Bare Bum But Not ISIS Scum! 

    Of course SBY was fortunate to have a member of the fanatic PKS party at the Ministry – yes, the same party whose leader lauded Osama Bin laden in a post 9/11 ode.

    SBY’s Minister gained worldwide fame when he got into bother for shaking a woman’s hand- Mrs. Obama’s.

    I find porn a pointless pastime, okay for those who are without the pleasure of women’s company, maybe, but time spent studying fanatics is rarely wasted. So I suppose I spend much more time on Islamist sites.

    Know your enemy, always a motto that makes sense. That’s why my own post-graduate course was in Soviet Studies. 

    The BNPT is the National Agency for Combatting Terrorism, and it was they who submitted the request for the shut-down.  The sites are listed – if you can find them, then they’re obviously not shut down!  

    I’ll get back to this tomorrow

    Makan Mewah di Jakarta? $1.50? Haute Cuisine a la Warteg! 



    One dollar and fifty cents!

    Taken this past day, at 2pm, in my favourite warteg, the location of which I keep to myself, as I like to relax there and ponder plans, etc., with only the cheery chatter of the three teenage waitresses in the backgound, which never bothers me. They are delightful young ladies from Tegal, in Central Java.

    That’s all it costs, and it both fills you up and tastes excellent.

    The rice you will recognise.

    The egg, one of about four or five per portion requested, is telur puyuh – quail eggs, of which my doctor friend says I should beware, packed with cholestoral – yummy!

    BTW, did I spell cholerster-whatsit right? Not a word I use or think about often.

    To the forefront, my nod towards healthy eating.

    I usually order some veg, often cap cay( pronounced chap chy) just in case my Mother is peering over her window-box on the Elysian Fields – one doesn’t forget the adjurations which reverberated around childhood meals!

    • Food_Glorious_Food
    • On the left, those two big chunky things are tahu. Their cousin on the right is tempe – one finds two sorts in most wartegs, the juicy and the dry. I alternate, depending if I am having those juicy telur.   Comparison between Tahu and Tempe | We LOVE English

    As already said, I won’t divulge my warteg’s whereabouts, but it is difficult in Jakarta not to find similar eateries in almost every neighbourhood.  

    Oya – my meal, and that price, included es teh manis, sweet iced tea!


    • JazPen 10:01 am on March 31, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, these places are good value. There are two or three near where I live in South Jakarta. I think one is even cheaper than yours!

      Hey Ross. We are in the warteg now, eating lunch. We all like this, reading your warteg story and wish you may come here again soon. Never any other foreign people come eat here with us here at back of Benhil, but many good place to eat. .
      We have very good perkadel today, I know you like them best.
      Holiday on Friday for Easter. Everyone is very happy.

      Do you never get bored hanging around your kampong dumps?
      Your dining tastes give a few clues why you are so ignorant, if you only talk to uneducated Indonesians who think like you that warteg ‘cuisine’ is edible.
      I wouldn’t eat in those rat-infested shacks if you paid me $150!

      I like this very much.
      We are always very excited when we have visitor from the other country saying good things about Indonesia and our food.
      You should try more different foods from the other provinces too. There may be thousand of cooking ways in every island so you can be busy eating for many years.
      Thank you and you are welcome.

      The food you show in the photograph looks like it is very delicious. I am also a lover of warteg eatings, and wish you can come to where we eat in the evening time.
      We all gather together after working all day long and share our story. Interesting for somebody who is writing about how it is in Indonesia.
      I give you the address eventhough it is in East Jakarta quiet far from where I think you have your house.

    ‘Sleaziest, Most Disreputable’ Media in the World? Britain’s! 

     Nothing like an objective and impartial headline, in the best traditions of British journalism. And that’s certainly what The Independent offered us last week, with this gem – 

    Ukip is the sleaziest and most disreputable party in Britain, voters say


    The ‘newspaper’ then provided us with the results of a survey which suggests many voters are amnesiac, if the lapses of one or two UKIP personalities in financial matters make them deem that party more worthy of disrepute than the mammoth  – and (slowly) continuing  – scandal of cover-up by all the main parties of sex-predators like Cyril Smith MP.



    Smith appears to have been a foul fat queer who used his Liberal Party positions of power to slake his thirst for under-age sex. Revolting.

    But MUCH more revolting was, and is, the failure by the political establishment to root out and expose, both to public contempt and to police action, all those complicit in facilitating, by censorship and suppression, his vile molestations of defenceless children.


    And of course the media must have got wind of it long ago, just as they knew and hid from public contempt the queer Tom Driberg, MP, who was infamously perverted, yet allowed to win and hold onto the Chairmanship of the Labour Party. And the Tory Party’s dirty linen is yet to be fully laundered too. Top Tory is linked to child porn stash Mar 2015

    Compared to all that, UKIP is squeaky-clean. And one’s main consolation is that Russians were subjected to immersion in this kind of ‘reporting’ by the communist media monopoly for seventy years but retained their ability, mostly, to see through the web of deceit.


    • liberal-media-bias
    • It’s all about what the media feed to their readers. Pederasty concealed till the perps are safely dead, their surviving political collaborators’ names held back till the election is safely over. Or whenever!

    Hence my second link today, about what is going on in the British General Election campaign, the orchestrated print war against the only party for decades that has broken the mould and challenged the corrupt and cosy cultural marxist consensus of what issues may be put before the electorate and how any such issue must be handled.

    …there seems little reason to doubt that the party-political establishment is still happily working with its friends in the respectable media…                  .

    The author of that piece is no right-winger, but he’s honest- though I wish he could have put those essential inverted commas around the word respectable! 

    Respectable media would not give a platform to elite snobs like Camilla Long and Matthew Parris, who are not content to attack UKIP’s policies and candidates but slur entire communities of decent British folk.




    elite arrogance-s


    I refer to the pampered grandbrat of a Tory peer, who defamed the constituency of Thanet as “bilious”, “grubby” and “a small nodule of erupted spleen..” UKIP Leader slams Tory paper attack on Thanet  And to Parris’ infamous stuck-up insults to another English town which had the temerity to vote UKIP. Message to Matthew Parris – Get Stuffed! 


    UKIP has faults.

    It has expelled or otherwise punished good candidates for no good reason, like referring to poofters as perverts, which they are, and as ‘poofters,’ which is what normal people usually call them.

    And Farage’s back-pedalling after his sensible call for an end to the stalinoid ‘discrimination’ laws is not the only reason  I worry if his party can deliver on its promise to give Britons back their heritage of freedom.


    But what else is on offer?






    • Eddie Richard 4:14 pm on March 31, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      You name Long and Parris, but you missed another one, a horror from Scotland called O’Loughlin, who was in the Guardian last weekend. Political commentary from ‘a restaurant critic.’
      Never eat anywhere she recommends!
      To compare her with Pravda would be an insult to the commies. It’s more like something out of Der Volkischer Beobachter, that Julius Streicher published, real gutter press.
      It’s her snobbery that’s the worst part, she doesn’t really like the town where Farage is a candidate (Thanet) because the town people prefer fried egg sandwiches to ‘lobster rolls.’
      If she was just joking, she’d be a great comedian but she really means it. And she has a really mean streak.

      The UK media are all-out to smash UKIP, but that is now so obvious that it’s bound to rebound.
      Like you, I’m not a UKIP member but will be voting for them, mostly just because of the dirty media campaign against them.

    Rotten Apple in Indiana? Queers Rail Against Religious Liberty! 

    Well, at least the Telegraph put inverted commas around the words ‘anti-gay.’


    More than can be said for those hand-maidens of the gaystapo inquisition like CNN.

    But even so, the sub-headline shows the journos are getting carried away with their own bias, on how the law that could make it easier for religious conservatives to refuse service to gay couples approved is sparking nationwide outrage. Indiana boycott urged after state passes ‘anti-gaylaw March

    Nationwide? Yes, maybe in all fifty states there are uptight homos mincing furiously around their living-rooms or banging their glasses of pink gin angrily on the tables in ‘gay’ bars.




    But I rather suspect most Americans, who are, after all, normal, will be either getting on with their weekend activities or nodding approval of Indiana’s Republican-backed bill whose authors say is intended to protect religious freedoms but critics contend could allow businesses to refuse service to gay people.

    Why on earth shouldn’t businesses be free to serve or not serve whom they please?




    But needless to say the bill has much more modest objectives, namely defending religious liberty against vexatious law-suits like that brought by the ACLU against that florist in Washington State.

    Crucified by ACLU Gaystapo, Christian Gran Faces Easter Hell! 

    There are plenty of cases of gaystapo commissars launching witch-hunts against decent Americans- the Telegraph’s example of a business being forced to cater a same-sex wedding if doing so would violate the religious beliefs of the owner echoes that true story of a baker who wouldn’t make a pervert wedding cake.

    Round One to U.S. Gaystapo – Oregon Fight Goes On! 

    As usual, degenerate plutocrats are talking bully-boy tactics, with the notorious homo Tim Cook, of Apple, and the left-lib leadership at Walmart railing against Indiana, while Twitter twits shrill about boycotts. 

    These people despise American values and detest religious liberty. They are the ones who should face boycotts.


    Incidentally, readers ought to check out the latest list of cosmopolitan billionaire companies who have declared war on marriage. It’s available on this link.   Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Coca-Cola Among 379 Christian Post-6 Mar 2015

    Jakarta Indah – A Weekend Walk On a Glorious Day! 



    Such a magnificently hot day, I could not seriously think of staying home. My weekend visitor had cancelled at short notice, re-scheduled for Tuesday, so no big deal, and I’d rested up Saturday, after severe mid-week partying.

    So off I went, Busway to Harmoni, no fixed plan, since Harmoni has buses to every part of town.


    SAM_9086 Harmoni Palace Restaurant


    Of course, I puzzled as always over the derelict resto. SOMEBODY must know how long it’s been there, how long it’s been derelict. why has it not been renovated as its architecture deserves!

    Intrigued – readers, please give up what info you have.

    I had intended to take a stroll, through that older part of Jakarta I’ve written of before. First, though, into Carrefour, where those imported paper-backs are still in stock. My choice today was a true story, an SAS man astray in Iraq during the Gulf War. Not finished yet!

    Having made the purchase, I set out, till on Jalan Juanda III there loomed an Alfamart, with some tables and chairs outside. A cold carton of choc milk purchased, I made myself comfortable and relaxed for half an hour.

    By this time my destination was decided, a twenty minute dawdle to Pasar Baru, which means New Market, and no doubt it looked very new in 1820 when it opened.



    Walking through those back streets behind Juanda Station was very pleasant, big and small businesses crammed in agreeably with modest dwelling, lots of street-life, everyone offering a friendly greeting, were they alert enough to do so! It must have been 90 plus degrees, so not all were paying much attention, folks dozing in their doorways along my chosen path.

    Once I came to the station, I turned right to the main road, then took a left along the canal, where this ancient looking building caught my eye, as it always does. 



    It too has been spookily desolate for years.

    I wonder why?.


    SAM_9088 Pasar Baru arcade


    Pasar Baru is a shoppers’ paradise, not that I’m into that sort of thing, but everyone else was. Usually I get impatient at the shopping pace, but on such a broiling arvo, I was content to plod along lethargically.

    My intention was to find that Holy Grail on my personal shopping list, a new rompi jacket. My supply has dwindled, had some for years but others have worn out, and my fave shop, in Singapore’s Little India, went out of business some years ago.


    Looking at what’s on offer in Blok M and Senayan, prices hovering above Rp.400,00, has stayed my pocketwards hand so far – so was I lucky in PB?

    Darn right I was!

    The first store, on the main drag, had a decent specimen for Rp,150,000, but I felt further exploration might be worth the effort, and sure enough, on the second floor, a little lady had a RACK of rompis.

    I picked out a blue one, my favourite colour, and asked how much.




    “Thirty thousand, Mister!”

    I honestly thought I’d misheard her, but when I repeated her words, she nodded and smiled. I tried it on, and paid her the sum required!

    Quit while you’re ahead, so they say, so I headed on down to the Busway and was fortunate to catch a direct Grogol route.




    From there, easily home, but not before I stopped in my warteg for a meal.

    To my surprise, it was crowded, a bunch of guys in to watch the soccer international between Indonesia and Brunei – if you don’t know the final score, I’m not telling.

    Vanessa Summers – Indiana’s Arrogant A-Hole! 



    I see from the WT and most other media that an Indiana Democrat named Vanessa Summers has accused a tiny tot of racism because he finds her scary.

    I empathise with the tot. He is clearly too young to understand what a twisted old bat he’s dealing with, but she’s surely no joy to behold.

    But her physical appearance is not what appalls me, so much as her arrogance, telling the tot’s dad ( a Republican legislator) to what kinds of people he should introduce his own child.


    “I told Jud McMillin I love his son, but he’s scare of me because of my color,” Ms. Summers said to Mr. McMcMillin, who is white, during the debate. “

    Okay, many politicians say imbecilic things in the heat – or hate – of the moment – but sensible ones back off. Instead Scary Summers digs herself deeper into a hole that’s as big as her offensive mouth. 


    “He looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried,” Ms. Summer said, the newspaper reported. “And I told him you need to introduce your child to some people that are dark-skinned so he will not be scared.”

    Who the HELL does she think she is?


    scantysanta Now if Vanessa looked like this, would the babe have been scared?


    I can recall an incident in an English resto, just under three decades ago, offspring of my very own, bursting into unstoppable tears  –    at the approach of Santa Claus! As a local Indiana editor has wisely observed – 

    It’s a hard fact of life: Toddlers cry. They cry when Dad picks them up. They cry when Mom puts them down. They cry when they’re hungry, and while they’re being fed. They cry before a nap and after a nap. And, on an especially bad day for their parents, during a nap. Why do they cry? Because they’re toddlers.

    No doubt every time this little lad goes out shopping with his mom and pop he sees ‘dark-skinned’ people. It’s SUMMERS that scared him, not everyone darker than himself.

    And no bloody wonder! Possibly, even so young, he can sense a mean-spirited menace!

    Parents are not to be dictated to as to whom their child will talk, or with whom their child will play.
