TARGET INDONESIA?

There are some interesting developments on the other side of the world from Syria, in Indonesia, to be precise, courtesy of some articles many of you sent to me, including Mr. E.G., who supplied the following three articles:

Prabowo Expresses Gratitude to FPI Leader for 'Saving Indonesia's Democracy'

Trump’s Indonesian Allies In Bed With ISIS-Backed Militia Seeking to Oust Elected President

Of the two articles, I want to concentrate on the second, for if its sweeping allegations are true, we have yet another case of elements of the American deep state supporting the most radical elements within Islam, to overthrow the government of yet another "moderate" or "secular" Muslim state, in this case, Indonesia. See if the following play book sounds vaguely familiar:

Associates of Donald Trump in Indonesia have joined army officers and a vigilante street movement linked to ISIS in a campaign that ultimately aims to oust the country’s president. According to Indonesian military and intelligence officials and senior figures involved in what they call “the coup,” the move against President Joko Widodo (known more commonly as Jokowi), a popular elected civilian, is being impelled from behind the scenes by active and retired generals.

Prominent supporters of the coup movement include Fadli Zon, vice speaker of the Indonesian House of Representatives and Donald Trump’s main political booster in the country; and Hary Tanoe, Trump’s primary Indonesian business partner, who is building two Trump resorts, one in Bali and one outside Jakarta.

This account of the movement to overthrow President Jokowi is based on dozens of interviews and is supplemented by internal army, police, and intelligence documents I obtained or viewed in Indonesia, as well as by NSA intercepts obtained by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Many sources on both sides of the coup spoke on condition of anonymity. Two of them expressed apparently well-founded concerns about their safety.

Now, of course, when one thinks of the words "coup", "Indonesia" and "military junta" all at once, one tends to think of 1965 and the coup against Indonesian president Sukarno, a coup that, for all its complexities, many (this author included) still think has the CIA's hands all over it (and let's not forget the ever-present Hjalmar Schacht hovering in the background, and Sukarno's more recently revealed connection to Operation Golden Lily's looted Japanese gold). Indeed, as the article itself notes, the 1965 coup is viewed that way to this day, in Indonesia:

Yet in repeated, detailed conversations with me, key protest figures and officials who track them have dismissed the movement against Ahok and the charges against him as a mere pretext for a larger objective: sidelining the country’s president, Jokowi, and helping the army avoid consequences for its mass killings of civilians — such as the 1965 massacres that were endorsed by the U.S. government, which armed and backed the Indonesian military.

Now, as then, the fear is Communism in the government:

Barely mentioning religious questions, they said Indonesia’s problem was New-Style Communism, and the army must be able to step in and guide the situation because Indonesia is not mature, not ready for democracy. Jokowi, they charged, was providing a space for communism, and the only strong organization that can face up to that is the army.

As to their street protest movement, they said, we civilians must be backed by the military, something they said was indeed happening secretly because now under reformasi the military can’t engage in politics. According to Haji Usamah, “It’s an intelligence operation by military personnel, but the army can’t be out front. They give the strategic view and direction. The army doesn’t like the communists.”

Leaving aside the memories of 1965, I want to concentrate on the high octane speculation of the day. I am certainly not by any stretch of the imagination familiar with Indonesian history, culture, or the internal tensions in that country, other than in the most general way. What intrigues me about this article and more importantly, with the more disturbing developments in that country in general, are things that lie outside the convenient comparisons of today with 1965, of President Jokowi with President Sukarno. Certainly the internal tensions are there to be exploited. What is disturbing is the wider picture and pattern that we've seen before: radicalized Islamic elements, the military, and US connections.

The question is: why, with these suggestions of US deep state connections, would those elements be interested in toppling yet another relatively secular and moderate Muslim state? The reasons for that, I suspect, are many and varied, and not the least of them involve the idea of setting up a "clash of civilizations" scenario. There appears to be a certain element of the globaloney crowd that wants to promote the most egregious and radical forms of Islam wherever it can. and thus far, its allies in these endeavors have been radical elements, funded and armed by a variety of cutouts, with many of those roads leading to Riyadh. Why there? Consider: the world is being divided into two blocs (again), one centered on Russia and China, and the latter's New Silk Road project, against which Mr. Globaloney has only one thing to offer: dollars, drones, and empire. As a way of extending its reach, it would appear that the "standard play book" is being revised, updated, and translated from Damascus to Jakarta. But Riyadh, too, is getting cold feet, and has recently made noises about wanting to join the BRICSA bloc.

Howsoever one parses its role, it does seem clear that there are deeper players in the most recent Indonesian shenanigans, and I hate to say it, but we have not heard the last of those deeper players. This is one to watch, folks, for rest assured, Washington, Beijing, Tokyo, and Moscow are watching.

See you on the flip side...

  1. As a 10-year resident in Indonesia, I suspect the answers are somewhat more mundane.

    Jokowi and Ahok have been rooting out corruption since day one – shutting down notorious night clubs, cutting off streams of bribe money, etc. This strikes directly at the heart of certain elements in the country’s military-industrial complex, especially where it involves drug running and infrastructure projects. This is likely tied directly to CIA slush funds, as well, since it is a rather open secret that US military act as mules bringing drugs and guns into the country.

    The other part of this is the vast natural wealth and strategic position of Indonesia in Asia. The US cannot afford to have Indonesia get too chummy with China – the largest trading partner of this country – when piles of strategic metals, coal, Natural Gas, etc. are at stake, not to mention cheap loans without all the World Bank/IMF strings. Indonesia’s shipping lanes are a key factor in the Silk Road project, and Jokowi has been lobbying hard to set up transportation nexuses in-country.

    Communism is hardly an issue, what with the exploding middle class here in the past 20 years, and the radical Islamic elements are just useful idiots for whomever pays the most. Very few take them seriously as anything more than a paid army of protestors to sprinkle liberally when and where needed.

    The key thing to watch is how the ethnic Chinese in Indonesia, who control a significant portion of the wealth and resources here, react. Ahok was wildly popular for his reforms and a lot of powerful folks are not happy with the recent election results. If the US has sided with Islamic elements here (not unlikely), they are likely to find they have backed the wrong horse.

    I have found it worthwhile to think of global matters within an Albert Pike mindset. For those interested, search on Pike/Mazzini, 1871 “letter”, and read about the forecast ‘easing’ into WWIII. (I do not think that Freemasons are the deepest level of the cake, by any stretch of the imagination.) All the Indonesian machinations make sense at this level of planning…

  3. Mr Pence visited our Prime Minister Mr Turnbull only a few days ago. Probably to check out just how malleable Australia is relative to China, North Korea and now, I think, Indonesia too.

    I think the fascists are continuing to manouvre globally, part of which includes the Saudi’s false interest in BRICS, and the planned Indonesian ‘regime change’.

    The facists need world-wide scaffolding to continue their attempt to once and for all topple Russia, the last of the old world, and usher in their spiritually devoid, new world order.

  4. China is becoming a Huge player geopolitically and most certainly, economically. She is challenging the destructive fake it till you make West’s economic platform based on paper & empty promises. Her eco9nomy is Real; not the fake baked in to the cake West recipe for the future. The two most recent Max Keiser reports had Dan Collins of the ChinaMoneyReport.com
    He tells it like you’ll never hear it from Western lamestream stenographers. There’s a part here where he speaks about some strong economic inroads China’s making into the Philippines.

  5. What’s the old saying patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel just add religion to it. What a devil brew these stupid wiseguys are playing with may they all burn in hell for their evil labors.

    1. May I recommend UK Column 04/27/2017 video on Youtube they were talking about the return of the city-state. Looking forward to the serene republic of Venice anybody.

  6. The manoeuvering in Indonesia has been so awkward that even Benjamin Fulford got it right this time. More evidence that an expiring empire is a dangerous beast.
    Of course this is also territory rumoured to host some of the much talked-about Yamashita’s gold…

  7. Judging by all the legal, territorial, oil and gold reserve mileage the PTB are getting now from their manufactured terrorist threat, and taking into account the current European and Indonesian destabilization vehicles, one might reasonably conclude we’re still a long distance from the next phase of false flag dominance, at least as von Braun delineated them, that being the UFO phase. Perhaps as the world’s population becomes increasingly Muslim, the chances of and the need for a staged UFO invasion will decrease in direct relation. Is there any population more easily incited to violence — pitted either against itself or outsiders — or more readily accepting of an authoritarian control and less likely therefore to develop technologies to one day rival the PTB?

    What about America?, one might ask. She currently suffers from no Muslim migration problem — Ivanka be damned — nor to a lesser extent do Russia and China. Well, perhaps these “problem nations” will be made to launch strikes against one another — preempted by America of course — strikes which primarily would destroy the global economy but threaten as well to annihilate an increasingly Muslim world — a world which might then be spared not by a false flag arrival of E.T., nor even by the second coming of Christ, but by the surprise return of a certain warrior pedophile left for now respectfully unnamed.

    1. There may be something in what Daryl says; but “Muslims” belong to a culture (be it Middle Eastern, Indian subcontinent etc. etc.) before they belong to a religion. A religion which by the way accepts the existence of angels and djinns. So they too, from the viewpoint of deep state devilry, could be manipulated by a UFO / Comet / Asteroid hoax.

  8. Well, I guess the Pentagram’s tomography satellites uncovered a new oil field off the Indonesian coast.

    Time to (re-)destabilize!

  9. Since 2015, Russia has been fighting radical Islamic groups in Syria, containing terrorism away from its borders and preventing its penetration into Russia and Europe.
    It does appear the weaponization of radical Islamic groups are being employed worldwide against any force[BRICS] that challenges the unacountables.

    1. It worked in Afghanistan and then the model was exported to Yugoslavia. It is now working in too many places and needs to be stopped in its deadly tracks. Time for a building global economy; instead of the destructive wars/drugs, economic scythe machine. Ultimately, an economy built on living wealth[a living Earth; that is, NOT a dead rock].

  10. God forbid any form or hint of self governance happen.
    Why they might share some of the nation’s wealth, instead of allocating those asset profits to the unaccountable few.
