DID YOU REALLY SAY TO SHOVE MY AID UP MY CLACKER?

... low level diplomacy out of Indo

Perhaps successive Australian Governments will now admit that decades of grovelling and tens of billions of unaccounted for taxpayers’ money gifted to a decadently corrupt, duplicitous Islamic nation has been counter-productive.

It’s exactly what intelligent Aussies have been saying for years and Hockey’s budget should now show this stupidity is about to stop... but it won’t... a “respectable” reduction more like it.

“Indonesia at the moment is no longer a country that needs aid for development,” said Indonesia’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Armanatha Nasir. “Nevertheless, any aid given by Australia is their effort to increase, to strengthen our partnership. And so, it’s their right to give, but Indonesia is not asking.”

Forget the executions, the hypocrisy, the lies, the lack of respect, the overt disdain for Australia. Underlying the real Indo anger is the fact that the boats were stopped by bribing the military and it has really got up the noses of the Indo Government. It was humiliatingly left out of the payola loop and demonstrated the military’s autonomy and influence over “elected” officials.

There is a separate diplomatic handbook for dealing with Islamic States and it reads something like this: Never go cap in hand (or hand in pocket) to an Islamic nation, always place a gun on the table before taking your seat.

Never arrive bearing gifts, and never ever show weakness or a willingness to assist without a quid pro quo and always observe with pride your national dress code, not theirs.

After all, that’s what all visiting national dignitaries do... except Australia’s. Did Gandhi or the Dalai Lama change into a three-piece suit? Did Golda Meir change into a mini skirt and boob tube?

And remember Islam was built on trading among its own and dominance over others so stop donating and start some hard bargaining.

And if you think Indonesia can ever be a military threat to Australia then you, like Indonesia, have got your hand on it.

Islam has always had a grossly inflated estimate of its own military ability, and as long as China (who will not stand for any of this Islamic bullshit) has interests here in Australia, Indonesia will not annex anything we don’t want it to, including West Papua.

It’s time to take a stand both there and at home. Islam will continue to run amok as long as we encourage it with cowardice.

It was sickening to see a Melbourne policeman following strict instructions to describe the Mother’s Day pipe bombs made by mad Muslim kids as, “another isolated incident” and, “just another violent crime that has no basis in faith”. Hmmm.

How is it possible to deal with a serious problem when we refuse to admit it exists?

Power type hand shake. Pity not followed up with strong leadership and cut out all foreign aid. Most ends up in someone pocket anyway. Same as here. Stimulus ended up costing more as lots pocketed by "mates". All too scared of Media and Left UN type labeling. Liked Cory Bernadi last night he stood up to Lateline leftie fem nazi - told her straight Islam is not a race. About time someone did. Now we need him to tell all of the punters out here - Follow the Moey Trail when talking heads are on TV - who pays them subtracts from their advice usually. Scientists all agree its warming - yeah well need the job like we all do. So say what they're told. Easy to work out so why so many dont. Solve that and maybe get somewhere. And stop being soft and being laughed at in our region as soft as sh*te

I worked on Aid projects in Indonesia for many years; the vast majority of taxpayer-funded "aid" went to paying exorbitant wages to Australian advisers, high rent for luxurious accommodation for them, large management fees to their Australian employing companies and travel costs and per diems. Little was actually "gifted" to Indonesians.Lx

Doodoo looks like he has done a poopoo in his pants.

Widodo comes from a family that did well cooperating with the Nips during the war and they were not Islamic albeit a lot in common.

Widodo is A-TYPICAL of all Indonesians who hate the west and hate Australians. Times have really changed in Indonesia and they have taken a 360 degrees turnaround from when Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was president. The average Indonesian does not like the West and/or Australia, they are influenced by jihad and all things Islam and extremist. We are kidding ourselves if we think that any of our aid went to the poor in Indonesia, all the billions of dollars in aid all went to corrupt politicians and alike. Its great to see that in the current LNP budget they have reduced aid to Indonesia by 40% which really should have been 100% and that should also apply to all other countries. They don't respect us, they are completely alien to us and with the first chance they will do us harm.

Well let's be good friends and take them at their word - we won't give them money they don't want or need. Thanks to Labor we would first have to borrow it from China anyway.

I don't know how or why I was hacked, don't know if I was hijacked but after such a long time I am so glad to be back. I hope the hackers have been busted and blocked.

Isn't it really annoying when the likes of Flannery was able to get away with the con. He got a lot of money out of his con & should be made to pay it back to the taxpayer. Beattie & Bligh got conned into it & wasted millions, possibly billions of Queenslanders taxpayer dollars on silly schemes like the Traveston dam & now rusty Tugan desalination plant. What is amazing is that some fools are actually sending him money to "keep up the good work"

Good to see Indo handouts down by 40%.

Flannel should stick to his bones and fossils, can't do much harm there.

The shits?

Great photo! Particularly like the (very) clenched left hand fist on the Indon Pres.

Don't hold your breath

Good news in from the UK....Cameron /Conservatives to go to war with the BBC ahead of a revue of its royal charter next year. So if TA LNP govt here follow suit there may some hope for a return to an unbiased ABC news service.

The aid is supposed to serve a strategic purpose. Security and trade (apparently). Some of it is supposed to support Christian schools and the education of females in Indonesia. Without that aspect, the corrupt officials will appease their Islamic puppeteers and convert all schools into madrases. Such is the ethic and corruption of Indonesia. It would be interesting to find out how many educated Christians come through their Islamic system of corruption unscathed. Do Christians in Indonesia have to pay jizya? Are they treated like 2nd class citizens?
The Columbo Plan is an excellent idea for spreading the idea of western democracy and freedoms in developing nations.
But is the foreign aid from Australia really just subsidising Indonesia's corruption and military?

Want to know how to become an honorary professor / doctorate / chancellor of a university? Easy - start off by ripping off workers and conning them through union officialdom. Next, secure yourself $$$ from union coffers to buy yourself a safe Labor seat for the next election. Better still, get parachuted into a safe Labor senate seat for no effort. Once in parliament stab a few backs to rise to the top echelons in Labor. Once you're a senior minister / prime minister / premier, then take a few $100million of taxpayers money and hand it over to your preferred university. When you political career is over (at your choosing) then call the university and ask for the return favour. Once you have become an honorary doctorate / professor / vice chancellor then start your memoirs and autobiography

Stalker, sick perv.

One million percent correct Larry.(If that's possible) If only the powers that be would come out & say it. They all can't be that stupid. I have no idea why they don't.

Steven Spielberg and Natalie Portman on Anti-Setimitism…Lovely! (Part I)

In order for Steven Spielberg to balance his Zionist equation, he has to exclude the actual facts and other interesting phenomena, such as the concentration camp in Gaza.
.
…by Jonas E. Alexis
.
The Zionist regime has really gone mad over the past few weeks and months. Certainly the movement has received a low blow precisely because several of its representatives have been none other than sluts, whores, liars, hoaxers, and even deceivers.
.
For months, the regime has been moaning and lamenting that “anti-Semitism” is on the rise and that it has nothing to do with Jewish behavior,[1] a risible thesis which we have refuted over and over. Here is how Steven Spielberg put the issue last January:
.
“If you are a Jew today, in fact if you are any person who believes in the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom in free expression, you know that like many other groups, we are once again facing the perennial demons of intolerance.”[2]
.
In his presentation, Spielberg is basically regurgitating two things: 1) “Anti-Semitism” is on the rise and 2) it has nothing to do with Jewish behavior. As Daniel Jonah Goldhagen would have put it, this form of “anti-Semitism” is the Devil that never dies.[3] On the contrary, Spielberg argues, people do not like Jews because they do not like “freedom of speech” and “freedom of expression.”
.
Although this thesis has been propounded ad nauseam in much of the Western World, most specifically in the Holocaust establishment, it has no moral and intellectual basis whatsoever. If we were to use that thesis as an experiment in a social study, that would one of the first theses to be considered—and it would be one of the first to be rejected, because it is so inadequate and ultimately worthless. If Spielberg thinks it is not, then he has to put his thinking cap on for a while and explain the following phenomena.
.
Can Spielberg really explain to us why David Irving has been in jail numerous times for questioning key aspects of the “Holocaust”? Can he tell us why Norman Finkelstein was fired from DePaul University?
.
Can Spielberg pick up the phone and call Denis Rancourt—a stellar physicist at the University of Ottawa and a scholar who has published more than 100 technical articles in peer reviewed scientific journals—and ask him why he was fired after teaching for more than twenty years? Did that have something to do with what Jewish writer J. J. Goldberg would have called “Jewish Power”[4] at the University of Ottawa? Let us hear from Rancourt himself:
.
“The Israel Lobby has the role of chief-whip for the US military-economic-finance empire; Empire, for short. That is, the Lobby ensures doctrinal discipline among Western, that is, US-aligned politicians, intellectuals, and the media, regarding the Empire’s Middle East policy. I mean ‘intellectual’ in the broad sense of any professional who has influence, and ‘media’ in the broad sense of anyone who communicates to others.
.
“The Empire’s main geopolitical focus presently is the Middle East, where the Empire is dedicated to actively and continuously prevent liberation and coalescence of Arab nations, so as to keep control of the territory and the energy resources. To achieve this, the Empire’s main policy in the Middle East is Israel, which is charged with continual war and sabotage against all Middle Eastern entities that would vie for independence from the Empire.
.
“Thus, the Empire, via Israel, is embarked on a vicious and murderous project without an end in the Middle East, and this unsavory project must be sold to the Empire’s home populations, including both managers and ordinary citizens. That is the role of the Israel Lobby; to sell Israel and the continuous and deliberate carnage as acceptable and unavoidable.
.
“That is why the Israel Lobby is actively engaged is creating Islamophobia, in exaggerating anti-Semitism, in constructing Nazi-holocaust remembrance, in suppressing academic freedom, in suppressing freedom of the press, in ‘finding’ and pursuing alleged ‘terrorists,’ in developing anti-speech [or] ‘anti-hate’ laws, in promoting cultural ties with Israel, in attacking Muslim associations, and so on.
.
“As such, the work of the Israel Lobby includes hundreds of ongoing campaigns to intimidate, discipline, fire, and vilify academics who dare to be critical of Israel or of US Middle East policy. The list of shut-out and targeted academics is a long one and includes the well-known cases of Joel Kovel, Ward Churchill, Norman Finkelstein, James Petras, Terri Ginsberg, William Robinson, David F. Noble, Steven Salaita, Iymen Chehade, and many others. The more an academic is threatening to the Lobby, the more aggressively that academic is attacked.
.
“My own case is also an example. I was a tenured Full Professor of physics at the University of Ottawa in Canada’s capital city. I am an internationally recognized researcher and I taught in both the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts. I was publicly critical of the university president’s paid trip to Israel.
.
“I invited Palestinian speakers into my classrooms to talk about Gaza, and geopolitical analysts who were critical of Israel. These moves led to condemnation of me in the Zionist mainstream media, and to discipline, which was overturned.
.
“In 2008, a new university president – Allan Rock – who is a staunch and unconditional supporter of Israel and who had been Canada’s Zionist ambassador to the UN, became immediately motivated to fire me, tenure or not, and irrespective of my popular courses and my large science research funding.
.
“With the help of an entire team using specially-hired union-busting lawyers, after contriving for years including intensive covert surveillance of me using a hired-student spy to monitor my every spoken and written word and my every activity on campus and at other university campuses, the university finally settled on the false pretext for dismissal of alleging that I had improperly assigned high grades to all 23 students in an advanced physics course.
.
“They needed a ‘clean’ pretext that they hoped would be supported by public opinion and that would not bring out all of their dirt. When public opinion and some mainstream media sided with me instead, a high-profile Zionist columnist at the New York Times suddenly wrote not-one but two articles to discredit me, and was invited to Canada to falsely defame me, regarding my teaching, on a trend-setting Canadian TV talk show whose producers are Zionists.”
.
This “high-profile Zionist columnist at the New York Times” was none other than Stanley Fish,[5] a professor of English literature at the University of Illinois. Fish has been a thought police since time immemorial. E. Michael Jones for example took one of Fish’s courses as a graduate student during the 1970s and things did not go well at all.
.
Let us just say in passing that Fish pretends to promote free speech in his writings and public appearances, but you are not allowed to criticize or demolish Fish’s arguments in his classroom, particularly when you logically show that those arguments are firmly planted in mid-air. Jones writes:
.
“After one class in which I tried to explain the similarities between Fish’s theories and those critics we had just demolished, a change came over the classroom. Not only wasn’t I brilliant anymore [Fish previously told Jones that he was ‘brilliant’], but I found that I could not get recognized to ask questions anymore. The discussion, what little there was, had to get along without me. One day after holding my arm up in the air for what seemed like hours, Fish finally called me, but prefaced his remarks by saying, ‘Mr. Jones, you’ve wasted enough of this class’ time; now, what is it?’
.
“I found myself remembering this incident while reading an article in a recent issue of Newsweek on ‘Thought Police on Campus.’ there right in the middle of the discussion was a picture of a now-wizened Stanley Fish telling the Newsweek reporter that ‘Disagreement can be fun.’ That’s not the way I remember it. It was not fun to disagree with Stanley Fish, at least not when you were a student in his class.”[6]
.
In any event, will Spielberg protect Rancourt’s free speech? Will he help Rancourt get his job back? Rancourt told me a few months ago that he was “struggling with this essential funding campaign for my appeal in the defamation case that was funded by the university.”[7] Will Steven Spielberg, whose “personal net worth is estimated to be $3.6 billion,” send a check to Rancourt and help his cause?
.
To pursue this study further, can Spielberg explain to us why Ernst Zundel’s house was burned down by members of the Dreadful Few? Can he come up with a rational explanation as to why Nicholas Kollerstrom, a noted historian of science who has written several entries for the Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers, was fired from the University College of London?
.
If Spielberg did not know any of those facts, then he needs to take a long vacation from Hollywood and visit his local library, talk to people who have been stigmatized by organized Jewry (most specifically Jewish people like Norman Finkelstein), and provide a reasoned response to some of their concerns. That would help him a great deal and would almost certainly move the debate forward.
.
Spielberg is confronted with multiple difficulties here. In order for him to balance his Zionist equation, he has to exclude the actual facts and other interesting phenomena, such as the concentration camp in Gaza.[8] He has to specifically dismiss the fact that “Bedouin families east of Jerusalem face forced evacuation.”[9] The Associated Press has recently declared,
.
“It was a large house with three floors and freshly painted pale blue shutters that had just been built for a family of 17. But within a few hours of work by a pair of Israeli bulldozers, all that was left was a mountain of rubble and twisted metal.”
.
In addition, Spielberg has to ignore the testimonies of at least 60 Israeli soldiers who said that they were indiscriminately killing civilians.[10] Listen to an Israeli official after Hamas won the Palestinian elections: “The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger.”
.
Spielberg has to deny that U.S. troops, which are under the auspices of the Neo-Bolsheviks, have and are still “operating openly in Ukraine.”[11] He has to deny that the Ukraine crisis, as John J. Mearsheimer of the University Chicago put it last year, is “the West’s fault.”[12] (From our perspective, it is the Neo-Bolsheviks’ fault.)
.
Spielberg has to deny that at least 25,962 innocent civilians have lost their lives from 2008 to 2013 in the Middle East.[13] Spielberg has to deny that “an estimated 26,000 rapes and sexual assaults took place in the military in 2012” alone.[14]
.
As it turns out, people like Spielberg have indirectly ruined the Zionist project. We have already argued that Mila Kunis, Pamela Geller, and Michael Douglas did not help the Zionist cause by pulling out the anti-Semitism card out of the Zionist hat. Now Natalie Portman’s turn.
.
“Israeli-born actress Natalie Portman says she feels nervous as a Jew living in France, where she moved last year, two months before the Charlie Hebdo attacks.”
.
Once again, has that woman visited Gaza? Why doesn’t she take a vacation there and see what it looks like?[15] Doesn’t Portman have a psychology degree from Harvard? Doesn’t she have to look at the actual evidence before she can make a conclusion?
.
Oh, my apologies. Portman rapped that she cheated on every test while at Harvard. (Whether she is being serious I cannot tell. But there could be some truth in this. She was still working as an actress while studying psychology. She was also Alan Dershowitz’s research assistant, the guy who got caught plagiarizing.[16]):
.
As we saw in a previous article, as an actress Portman could not give credit where credit was due. In short, her fruit does not allow us to take her seriously at all.
