    PRJ – Jakarta Fair, 29th May-5th July, 2015 

    Well, it’s that time of year again, but when you try to use the link to see who’s singing and when, all I got is ‘coming soon.’

    Maybe you’ll have better luck!

    But there’s only a few more days!

    It would be nice to have access to a schedule of musical events.

    Wrong, Retno – Crimmigrants’ Intended Targets Have NO Duty Of ‘Cooperation!’ 

    Ms Marsudi replied that it was “not fair” to make the problem an Indonesian one.


    • retno-marsudi-menlu-perempuan-pertama-indonesia
    • “The cooperation should come from country of origin and country of transit and country of destination,” she said.

    And it sounds like she’s blaming Oz for declining to be lumbered with more free-loaders!

    Retno Marsudi may be the first female Foreign Minister Indonesia has ever had, but she’s not the first holder of that job to fall into drastic error.

    We spent a lot of time criticising her predecessor, Marty ‘Mealy-Mouth’ Natalegawa, mostly for his inability to talk straight about the Cikeusik Pogrom ‘trial…’

    …in hindsight, whether the sense of justice is fully served, I don’t know…     

    …and so far Bu Retno hasn’t said anything quite as outrageous as those shocking words about that shocking mockery of justice.


    But nevertheless…why has she made such a deliberately and needlessly provocative statement?

     Why on earth should the crimmigrants’ target nations be dragged into the equation? Australia never invited these wretches, nor indicated in any way that they’d be given a green light to get their greedy snouts into Aussie tax-payers’ pockets!




    Country-shopping is NOT a ‘human right’ listed even in the European Court’s bizarre interpretations of that hazy concept.

    If some dead-beat in some dire dump decides all by himself that bludgers can screw more benefits out of Aussie (or Canadian, or UK, or US) tax-payers than are likely obtainable here in Indonesia, or Malaysia, or indeed anywhere else…



    The ‘destination’ of the waster wannabes is simply their personal plunder plan, just like a house picked by ‘home invader’ robbers. That pick in no way obligates any innocent family to oblige nasty looters who erupt uninvited to lay waste a happy home.

    If Indonesia decides to bow to UN diktats and bring ashore hundreds or thousands of undesirable aliens, Indonesia has to live with the consequences.

    I suppose the IslamoNazis will rush to take their share into their homes.


    fpi kill busddhist


    The FPI claim to have thousands of members, so their individual readiness to open their personal doors should soak up most of the Rohingya currently detained in camps in Aceh.

    Indeed, numerous posters I saw last week, on my bus travels around Jakarta, urging Indonesians to ‘help’ Rohingya were very clearly sectarian in their appeal, like this one I found via Google today.

    • NB  Note carefully -NOT  ‘Help Rohingya‘ but ‘Help Rohingya Muslims.’ 

    If the new batch of Rohingya are anything like those we featured two years ago…

    …they’ll get on famously with the blood-thirsty FPI white-shirts in our photo, openly advertising their wish to murder people they’ve never met, purely on grounds of how those people worship God. 

    But are these people even Rohingya?


    Obviously, few ‘asylum’ seekers in this part of the world, as on the Mediterranean, are genuinely seeking ‘asylum.’ They are, more often than not, just economic migrants, snouts looking for a trough.

    And the Oz media report fresh confirmation of this enduring truth, Julie Bishop quoting Ibu Retno’s own colleagues, thus –

    “They (Indonesia) believe there are about 7,000 people at sea [and] they think about 30 to 40 per cent are Rohingya, the rest are Bangladeshi,” Ms Bishop said.

    “They are not, in Indonesia’s words, asylum seekers, they are not refugees — they are illegal labourers. They’ve been promised or are seeking jobs in Malaysia.

    “They said the Rohingya have gone to Bangladesh and have mixed up with the Bangladeshis who are coming to Malaysia in particular for jobs.”

    Hasan Kleib


    Ms Bishop said Indonesia’s director-general of multilateral affairs, Hasan Kleib, told her one boat carrying 600 people had 400 Bangladeshis aboard.

    Now when even the ABC feels a duty to record this reality, you know the case for deportation of many of these moochers must be overwhelmingly strong.

    Already Tory Lies Exposed! Cameron Endorses Labour Curb on Expat Voters 

    UK nationals who have been resident overseas for 15 years or more will not be eligible to vote, despite assurances from the Conservative party chairman, Grant Shapp, last year that they would be.


    • EU - referendum vote
    • —————————————-





    The Guardian report also reminds us that it was Labour, in 2000, that narrowed overseas voters’ rights, no logical argument presented then, clearly party advantage discerned, since older voters are said to be more conservative.

    Now Cameron has cast aside his party pledge, and certainly thus rigged the expat vote. Many of the younger ones, who get to vote, are on the EU payroll, or at least have a vested interest in that they are employed in EUSSR member states.

    This should make no difference, of course, on how they mark their ballot papers, but ‘should’ and ‘will’ are two separate verbs. It’s a fact that a lot of people these days, in a lot of countries, vote on the basis not of patriotism, or any principle, but on crass short-term personal advantage.

    As noted previously, this freezing of the franchise mirrors the frozen pensions – if a man lives outside the UK, his senior citizen state pension remains forever at exactly the same sum he first got when he turned 65.

    I believe some very old folk in this situation are expected to live on roughly five pounds a week!

    But that would cost money to fix!

    And Cameron has a lot of financial outgoings MUCH more important than that!

    Like the wads of cash handed out to ‘asylum’ bludgers..




    .. plus the millions wasted on lawyers playing games with illegal immigrant cases,  plus the millions soaked up by sticky-beak trouble-makers on bodies like the ‘Equality Commission…’


    ….not to mention the rip-offs perpetrated by Brussels against the UK tax-payer.





    Only a damfool would expect Cameron to care more for elderly Brits than for wastrel projects like those.

    UK Forced To Take Sweden’s Surplus Parasites? – UKIP The Only Hope! 

    Just read a lengthy and thoroughly alarming article in EUObserver ( a committed Europhile part of the media, so all the more revealing their exposure of Juncker’s malevolent scheming)

    It makes it clear that the Commissars in Brussels can and will impose thousands of parasites on every EUSSR province.

    jean-claude-juncker-2006- Enemy Within


    • I use ‘province’ because the extent of their decline from their former sovereign status is made starkly plain. And it’s not just the enemy within’s intention to advance their grand design from ‘recommended’ to ‘binding!’


    Nor is it the absence of ANY repudiation by Brussels of Comrade Mogherini’s ‘guarantee’ that not one single savage will be sent back without its specific consent!


    • Enemy at the Gates!


    Get a load of the shocking suggestion that Sweden, having more or less irretrievably  abandoned its national identity by importing enormous numbers of undesirable aliens, could unload its surplus bludgers on other countries under Juncker’s proposals! 

    But it’s right at the end that we realise what a debt of gratitude Britain owes to the millions of patriots who cast their votes for UKIP a few weeks ago. 

    National governments are extremely wary of the rise of anti-immigration parties, so they might reject the proposals out of hand. In this case, the commission will have gambled and lost.


    • =========================
    • It’s no good bitching about the unfairness of the electoral system.
    • Of course it’s iniquitous, but those millions of votes were NOT wasted – they sent a message to the rotten elite, that the country has stirred in its slumbers.

    And it will awake – if the drums keep sounding, if the bugles keep playing, without self-serving dissonance in the marching band of the People’s Army.  

    If those currently engaged in internal party feuding don’t belt up and unite behind the leader UKIP members obviously favour, they will be cursed by future British generations.

    And it goes without saying that unity at home needs to be matched by unity across the EUSSR, every independence movement coming together hand in hand to fight common enemies, both the internal breed and the sea-borne enemy at the gate.

      In fact the UK opted out of that particular EU obligation so cannot be forced to take them

      • ross1948 11:03 pm on May 25, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        The problem, however, is that the European Court (not the ECHR but the ECJ) has made short work of rights the UK fondly imagined it had preserved from supranational encroachment. And UK Governments have bowed to its edicts.
        I have no real confidence in Cameron’s readiness to resist Brussels, except with loud-sounding nothings.

    Not Even Pot/Kettle – Commissar-in-Chief Slurs Orban as ‘Dictator!’ 

    A fine day out there, so off we go!

    But before venturing forth, a word on the arrogance of the Brussels elite!

    You, many of you, probably saw that EurocRat, the self-confessed liar Juncker, insult Hungary’s Viktor Orban on tv this past weekend.

    ‘The dictator is coming,” he sneered, as the democratically-elected leader of the Magyar people approached. Then the boor put on a pantomime as if he’d been joking, a hypocritical hand-shake…


    jean-claude-juncker-2006-Liar Juncker, who often had to lie  because economic policy was too important toi be discussed in public… ‘ He apparently prefers ‘deep and dark debates,’


    Some joke.

    Orban may not be perfect, but he has the guts and civic responsibility to consult his own people on the crimmigrant menace, and also pays proper attention to their concerns on the death penalty.

    How many of Junker’s EUSSR satraps have done the same?





    If those Brussels commissars snap their sticky fingers, the puppets dance to their tune.

    No matter most Brits favour capital punishment, Cameron ignores them and obeys the EUSSR fiat. In servile fashion, he orders his pathetic flunkeys, exemplified by the uppity FCO twits attached to the British Embassy in Jakarta…

    … to fan out, misrepresenting British views, lying to Indonesians that ‘the UK’ is opposed to dealing with terrorist vermin as they deserve.

    ‘The UK?’  If by that we mean we mean the people who live there, the UK wants terrorists put to death.

    On the migration menace, Orban is infinitely more democratic than Cameron – he ASKS his people what they think…Hungary’s Immigration Survey – ‘Horrible?’ Or Admirable? You Be The Judge! 

    referndmlet peole vote

    We covered his consultation on migration in order to confront existing EU rules, exercised dubbed “horrible” by one  liberal MEP…


    Viktor-Orban-006 Orban


    …and infinitely less dictatorial than Juncker, who would likely have a heart attack if anyone suggested that admission of undesirable alien parasites be referred to electorates via a series of national referenda.


    • 0d8e4-kingcameronarrogant
    • ——————-
    • Juncker, we were told by Cameron, was a VERY BAD CHOICE as Chief Commissar.
    • For once, Cameron was right, but of course we knew he was lying – Juncker and he are hand in glove in the imposition of the cultural marxist agenda.

    Murder in Posh Kemang! Kenapa Jopi Tewas? 

    Just about to go out into the morning sunshine, late rise today, touch of flu still lingering, but then I read about Jopi Peranginangin.

    Frankly, I’d never heard of him, but he won’t be going out into any morning sunshine today, or ever again.



    • ===================
    • Not yet 40 years of age, he was brutally killed in one of Jakarta’s most upmarket areas yesterday, that neighbourhood I invariably describe as ‘posh Kemang.’

    It’s way down south, full of fancy cafes and bars, and home to the rich, including many foreigners (those with money, hence my residence elsewhere!)

    And in a car-park, sometime after midnght, he was beaten and stabbed to death, apparently for trying to break up a brawl – so say the cops.  

    That is notable too.

    If one sees a girl walking down a dark street being attacked and robbed, most of us would step in and try to help. But a brawl among half-a-dozen thugs? When the cafe’s own security were on the scene to sort it out?

    Jopi was stabbed in the back.


    bar venue 780x390

    • ———————–
    •  The Jakarta Globe curiously doesn’t seem to know which cafe’s car-park, but it shouldn’t be hard to find out.  ( I just did – the more thorough tells us it was the Venue, located at Jalan Kemang Selatan Nomor 2; I’ve never been there)

    Murder most foul, but many such, alas, happen here in Jakarta – why note this one?

    Well, the JG tells us that, at least!

    But only right at the bottom of their report do they provide the details.

    Poor Jopi was ‘an activist with the Alliance of Indigenous Peoples of the Archipelago [AMAN].’ 

    He was, moreover, ‘known for his intense criticism of palm oil companies which violate their working permits and concession areas approved by the Indonesian government.

    Again, curiously, this is reflected in their headline…

    Environmental Activist Murdered in South Jakarta: Reports

    … so why only get round to explaining it at the tail-end of their report? Does somebody at the JG think there’s a connection, yet lacks the proof to make the link? 

    At least four witnesses are currently being questioned by the police, including two of the cafe’s security guards..

    I’ll be interested to see who, if any, of those responsible, gets arrested and charged. I don’t get into ‘environmental’ issues as a rule, though occasionally pay attention to them, when undesirables are involved.  ‘Greenpeace – Stooge of the Infidels!’ Latest Jakarta IslamoNazi Rant 

    But nobody deserves to be slain in a car-park for simply showing concern over the fate of the forests.

    Jokowi On Blasphemy Charge? Java Rhythm ‘Enflames’ Fanatics! 


    President Jokowi has quite lot to contend with these days, both home and abroad, and even gets criticism from our blog from time to time.

    But a new clamour has arisen, from that ever-ready source of intolerance, the IslamoNazi FPI, the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front.’

    They want him PROSECUTED for blasphemy!


    They’ve got their white-shirt knickers in a twist because last week’s State Palace celebration of the Islamic Ascension included Koranic readings in which the verses were recited with rhythms associated with Indonesia, rather than with Arabia.

    Given that the State Palace is located in Jakarta, capital city of Indonesia, a naive observer might see nothing amiss with this.

    Indeed, many observers, not at all naive, might raise a cheer, because it tends to be that minority of Muslims who pay much too much attention to backward Arab thnking who cause offence and disturbance.

    The more Indonesianised any Islamic activities become, surely the better for all concerned.


    gus dur fasting

    ‘We Muslims should fast with respect for those not fasting.’


    The late President Gud Dur was a fine example of how to apply Islamic standards in a Javanese (i.e.tolerant and civilised) manner. 

    Among those whose response suggests approval are that refreshing fellow, Lukman, about whom it would be uncharitable to say that he’s the best Minister of Religious Affairs since Suryadharma Ali.

    Truth to tell, my cat would have been an improvement  on Ali.


    In fact, Lukman is an admirable man, who seems to be a person of genuine good character and goodwill to all men.

    Anyway, Lukman defended the use of Javanese rhythms at the palace, despite many who say such a manner of recitation is forbidden.

    “The purpose of reading the Koran with Java style is to keep and maintain the tradition of the archipelago in spreading the teachings of Islam in this country,” said Lukman on his personal Twitter account.

    • ……………

    Today, how many Indonesians can afford to study Arabic in school, even supposing they can afford to go to school at all?

    Of couse, there are pesantren, the so-called ‘Islamic boarding schools,’ but while I’m prepared to concede that some of those are run by good people, a lot are NOT! Many are at best described as obscurantist!

    Lukman Slams Pesantren Fanatics – Can One Brave Man Slay The Hydra? 

    Others are much worse than that!


    But Indonesia has a way to go before that kind of progress is conceivable. Having prayers in Bahasa Indonesia? Or Bahasa Jawa or Bahasa Sunda? Read about the police investigation into Muhammad Yusman Roy for conducting Islamic ritual prayers (shalat) in two languages, Arabic and Indonesian.


    Let’s just be glad for now that the Javanese rhythm is getting support.

    But not from some geezer called Saiful Islam Mubarak, who runs – yes, you guessed! – the Pesantren Tinggi Maqdis.



    He reckons this step challenges the character of the Koran. 

    Lukman’s response is mild.

    “That’s understandable because this is something new and gives rise to diverse views…This is purely my own proposal… something positive with positive goals…,” said Lukman.

    BUT there’s no show without Punch!

    Lukman’s opinion enflamed the FPI!


    • habib-fpi-rizieq Rizieq
    • ————————————
    • Their frantic fanatic fuhrer, Habib Rizieq, modestly demanded that “the President and the Minister repent and ask forgiveness before God, and apologize to all Muslims.

    ALL Muslims?

    Since when did this outlandish gang-leader speak for ALL Muslims?

    Jokowi’s a Muslim, Lukman’s a Muslim, and Lukman consulted various ulama (‘scholars’) prior to the recital.  

    But Rizieq’s having none of that archaic (and Javanese-style!) rubbish about respecting other’s views.

    “If not, they must be processed with the blasphemy law and ousted from office because of insulting the Koran. Legally, insulting the Koran is apostasy. An apostate cannot lead Muslims!”

    Empire Day, 24th May – Let’s Sing ‘The Maple Leaf Forever!’ 



    Another Sunday morning coming down, but no Johnny Cash songs today.

    I had a very restful Saturday, stricken with that flu, but a helpful visitor ameliorated my situation.

    Between LemSip and Johnny Walker, I have fought off the worst of the illness. So today, bacon and eggs, then a bit of a jaunt.

    But mindful of the history of my tribe…


    The popularity of the patriotic song “The Maple Leaf For Ever” has endured for over a century after its composition in 1867, the year of Canada’s Confederation. This is one of the original 1,000 copies of the song that composer Alexander Muir had printed. Legend has it that Muir was inspired by a maple tree in Toronto’s east end Leslieville neighbourhood.

    Alexander Muir, 1830-1906
    Toronto: 1868

    We used to belt that song out as we saluted the Red Ensign, in our elementary schools in Perth County, Ontario.

    Have a Happy Empire Day!
