    Kasihan Destiara? Yummy Model Demands Apology! 

    What’s going on in Kendari?

    In the normal run of events, most everyone here, and even more abroad, would be hard-pushed to answer that question.

    Kendari is a city in Sulawesi, which is rarely in the news.

    But a yummy model’s righteous wrath has put it in the headlines this week, with the city’s mayor having to come all the way to Jakarta to answer questions about what transpired between His Honour and Destiara Talita…

    …who is, as you can see, exceedingly yummy.

    The mayor she’s reported is Adriatma Dwi Putra and last week he attended the Jakarta Police headquarters.



    I won’t offer a photo of Dwi…

    ( a member of the PAN, party, by the way, which I’ve written about previously  –‘Moderate’ PAN Fanatic Bribes Muslims Into Prayers!   -though I’ve never so far written about Kendari’s Mayor Dwi)

    …as he’s not as enjoyable to look at as Desti, but there’s a pic of Police HQ, which I pass on the bus most times I go into town.

    The Model v the Mayor?

    I imagine this story will run and run, as who said what about, or to, whom, is gradually determined.

    Desti maintains that, not only had she been Dwi’s significant other for some time prior to his recent election, and that he’d pledged marriage, albeit not proper marriage but something called ‘nikah siri,‘ a kind of informal arrangement…The Corner: Nikah Siri (Unregistered Marriage) ….

    …but that, flushed with political success, he backed out of the plan and, worse, dismissed her as a prostitute, allegedly compounding this insult by suggesting she was both ‘poor‘ and ‘stupid.’

    Harsh words.

    Curious, because she doesn’t look stupid, nor indeed like a whore, and I checked her out on another site, where, I discovered, she’s listed as a reporter, student, politician AND has a bra size 34B.

    Mayor Dwi, to nobody’s great surprise, denies all that she says.

    According to the Jakarta Post, all Desti wants from him is an apology but it seems unlikely he will give her one.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/08/22/model-urges-kendari-mayor-to-apologize-for-defaming-her.html

    Heck, even though I have never offended or even met the lovely lass, I would, if she asked!

      Hohoho, Ross.
      English slang, right?
      I would give her one too, or two!

    PKI Belum Mati? Public Funds and Pinko Propaganda! 

     As predicted, another fine sunny morning here!


     Been meaning to follow up on an interesting report in the Jakarta Globe, about how parliamentary questions are being asked about some $11 million of public funds splurged on participation in the Frankfurt Book Fair.

    teguh-juwarno Teguh
     “There were complaints about the presence of certain groups,”  says Teguh Juwarno, a legislator for the Islamist PAN party.
     I’m not exactly a fan of Teguh, but I’d say he’s quite right to go through expenditure of millions with a fine-tooth comb.
    Except that he falls straight into that most annoying habit we find here, intentional opacity.
    Certain groups?
    What the heck does that refer to?
    No further concrete info from Teguh, nor the Jakarta Globe, which adds that these unspecified groups of people had managed to steer discussions at the book fair into a direction that the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry considered undesirable…

    But Teguh’s further words give us a clue. 
    He said his commission had received complaints from embassy staff and diplomats abroad about Indonesia’s representation at the fair.
    And back to the Jakarta Globe, which plays detective in the absence of any positive ID from Teguh.
    Presumably, Teguh was insinuating that there had been unease among Indonesian officials about the prominent role at the event of books dealing with the 1965 anti-communist purges..while it was supposed to have been all about promoting Indonesia as “17,000 islands of imagination.
    pkiposter PKI – a violent thug party
    As we all know, the PKI, Communist party of Indonesia, is outlawed here, a direct consequence of their attempted ‘kudeta’ in 1965.
    The public in general are fiercely anti-communist still, as we saw during the Presidential election last year, when attempts were made to smear President Jokowi as pro-communist.
    This was obviously done to harm his campaign, and his campaign’s energetic – and successful – effort at refutation indicate the electorate’s anti-communist outlook.
    Since the Reds were importing weaponry in vast quantities in 1965, supplied by Mao’s marxist tyranny, there’s little doubt that the PKI threat was very real.
    Yet there is constant agitation, spurred along by both the Jakarta Globe and its ‘rival,’ the Jakarta Post, to rehabilitate the totalitarian hypocrites in that party.
    This is dressed up as concern for those individuals either wrongly accused of communism or victimised purely because they had kin in the PKI or its various affiliated front organisations, like LEKRA, the ‘intellectual’ gang whose leading light was Pramoedya…

    I’ve referred readers to Tempo, issue May 16-22, 2006 before, but must once more do so, for it covers the evil old Red’s career rather well and explains why some 25 “prominent literary figures and cultural observers” put their distinguished names to a formal submission to the Magsaysay Award Committee in 1995, protesting at that body’s decision to give Pramoedya an award.


    Pramoedya the Red


    Their reasons were simply stated, viz his unethical role during one of the darkest periods for creativity during the Guided Democracy era, when he led the persecution of artists and literary figures who disagreed with him. (this protest is air-brushed out of most Western references nowadays, though a brief mention is to be found in an otherwise slavishly pro-Pram article in the Economist http://www.economist.com/node/168819 )

    ...but neither of those ‘revisionist’ papers seems able or willing to make a sufficently clear distinction between the above categories – who do indeed deserve sympathy – and vicious old PKI hacks who have never repented their evil ideology.
    We’ve noted this problem often enough.

    It’s a free country and if the JG and the JP want to lament the woes that befell communist traitors, they are entitled to do so.

    As they are entitled to afford present-day foreign marxist malignants a platform to advance their causes. 

    Jakarta Post Lets Oz Red Urge Show Trial for Morrison! 

    However, in this case, if the allegations reflected in the JG report are correct, it’s not just pinko journos but government funds that have been enlisted in the revisionist cause.
    If the theme of the state-sponsored stand in Frankfurt was designated as boosting tourism, then stocking it with books by left-leaning authors was totally out of order.
    Not so long ago, we posted on the claims by various Islamist fanatic sources that the communist menace is alive and well.  
    Geriatrics V IslamoNazis – Jakarta 1965 – Whose Victims Were They? 
    I treated those ranters with some degree of scepticism, partly because of who they are, and partly because, knowing plenty of ordinary Indonesian folk, it seemed highly unlikely the PKI or any new version thereof, could ever gain a foothold here.
    But the news from that book-fair in Germany does make me wonder – and it has plainly made a lot of Indonesians wonder as well.

    Ngada? Astaga! Tantrum Regent’s Goons Fined 38 CENTS for Runway Blockade! 

    It does become ever harder to explain Indonesian concepts of justice to its many detractors, and the news from Kupang, in East Nusa Tenggara Province sure as sugar doesn’t help.





    Prosecutors in eastern Indonesia have decried as lenient the suspended sentence and token fine handed down against 23 public order officers for blocking an airport runway in December 2013.

    The prosecution had asked for two-year prison terms and multi-million rupiah fines, but instead, the moronic militia got suspended sentences with a Rp.5000 fine – that works out at THIRTYEIGHT CENTS – less than you pay for a can of Coke here!

    Nice to know what value the court puts on passengers’ safety.

    This case has been dragging on and on and on…despite plentiful evidence against these low-level jerks, who were ordered into this utterly irresponsible action by a tantrum-driven regional leader named Marianus Sae.


    Marianus Sae. Tribunnews

    Spoilt Brat Sae


    Merpati – Spoilt Brat, Tantrum, Blocks Runway – No Arrests?! 

    I have more than once sought info from media sources to learn what’s going on, since Sae, the Regent of Ngada, staged his spoilt-brat act all those many months ago. 

    He ordered the blockade of the airport in Ngada because he was angry that he was unable to get a ticket for a flight home from Kupang, the provincial capital, on board a fully booked Merpati Nusantara Airlines flight.



    Runway Blockade – Minnows Named, Blow-Fish Next? 

    Like most Indonesians, I was shocked that he was not instantly suspended from his position of responsiblity, since responsibility is plainly a quality of which he was in short supply.  

    Local media have had little to say, except on rare occasions  –http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2013/12/23/no-sanctions-yet-regent-harming-flight.html  – and this turns out to be simply due to the foot-dragging of those preparing for the court case. There was no news to report – though surely any conscientious editors would have had their hacks down there door-steeping various sloths daily, demanding to know what was holding thngs up.

    There certainly ought to be a serious investigation NOW into  how long it took to go to trial, as the Jakarta Globe puts it.

    But much more importantly, what kind of court renders a guilty verdict for an extremely serious crime, blocking an airport runway where a plane-load of passengers was due to land, then makes that verdict a hollow victory!




    What’s all the more shameful is that the Indonesian Government hasn’t lifted a finger to intervene –

    – The Home Affairs Ministry, which is required to suspend a regional head if they are charged with a criminal offense, has failed to act against Marianus for more than a year and a half now. –

    Jakarta Ministers may argue that, ludicrously, Sae has only been named a suspect, not charged (and that’s bloody bizarre in itself )

    But there must be powers to intervene if there are indications of instability, which ordering hired goons to take dangerous action, merely to soothe one’s fretty little ego, must indicate. And there should have been constant pressure from Jakarta on the foot-dragging court.

    If the Government chooses to demonstrate such sublime indifference, it makes you wonder about flying anywhere in the archipelago. There may be more than  one tantrum-prone twit holding office in Indonesia! 

    People who use air passenger transport services deserve to be reassured that such brainless behaviour is prevented, and the best way to remove the threat of tantrums is surely to remove the culprit from the equation.




    Meanwhile,  the local DA has agreed with most thinking people, and plans to immediately file an appeal against the sentencing, on the grounds that it was not commensurate with the seriousness of the offense, which put passenger safety at risk. http://thejakartaglobe.beritasatu.com/news/court-hands-suspended-sentences-runway-blockade-case/

    The only consolation is that Merpati Airlines, whose boss disgracefully had a cosy little chat with Sae….

    –  Merpati’s president director had personally contacted Marianus…the two had agreed to close the case.. http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2013/12/23/no-sanctions-yet-regent-harming-flight.html

    …went on to hit serious commercial problems. http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/news/end-in-sight-for-merpati-as-govt-suspends-permit/

    Now we must wait to see if courts down in East Nusantara Tenggara Province get their act together and ensure that there will soon be serious LEGAL problems for you-know-who!

    But don’t hold your breath – there’s a powerful Islamist party which has sworn to support him. 

    Tempo.com reported way back in December 2013 that the National Mandate Party (PAN)’s Deputy Secretary General,Teguh Juwarno, ‘regretted’ Sae’s ‘unworthy’ action but ‘appreciated’ his apology.




    Although Teguh  is also a law-maker, and recognised that Sae had broken the law, he made it very clear that PAN ‘would still defend him.’‘   http://www.tempo.co/read/news/2013/12/24/058539787/Tutup-Bandara-PAN-Hanya-Akan-Tegur-Bupati-Ngada

    If any of Teguh’s loved ones had been on that Merpati flight, would he still have ‘appreciated’ that apology?

    Makes you want to vomit!

      It is shaming to all Indonesia. Like a tiny child, needing a slapping.
