Quality News and Views Editor's Comments:

Agung Tennis Club Bali. Healthy, fun, and very inexpensive
From right Cakra Yadnya(architect), his wife Ke ke, brother Sendika Finance & Investment  and Lawrence Editor of this Blog, Developer, Realtor & Hotel Manager
I can't think of a better way to start off another work week in Bali than playing tennis on government courts in Renon with some good friends.


The atmosphere is lovely the courts are good and very inexpensive.

I've been with this group for many many years.

It was started by an avid tennis player a goon and I was introduced to it by a good friend of mine Dr. Yudhi Winata

It includes several top Bali professional business people and many doctors.

It's always fun and always doubles.

Everyone is very competitive.

Primarily suitable for 30 and older crowd although all ages are welcome.

We play every Monday and Wednesday morning starting as early as 6:30 AM till 9 AM. to avoid Bali's hot sun.

We have an opening for a few new members. The cost is minuscule.

If interested in coming in joing us for a few hits sometime a smy guest drop me a message or better yet whatsapp me at +628123814014.

Building permits to be revamped under Omnibus Law

MARKETS SEP 25, 2019

In continued efforts to stimulate investment and economic growth, Indonesia's government has announced it will change rules and regulations around building permits.

As permits are reduced and removed the number of building inspectors will be increased to ensure standards are met.

Proposed changes to existing build permit regulations does not mean developers will be left unregulated.


Aparadigm shift in Indonesia's construction and real estate industries is taking place. According to local newswires the requirement for new buildings to have a build permit (locally called an IMB - Izin Mendirikan Bangunan) is about to be revamped and updated with what is being described as "standards compliance."

Omnibus Law

The initiative is part of a larger strategy under the Omnibus Law, which aims to overhaul 72-existing regulations in an effort to "reduce the number of overlapping investment licensing rules at central and regional levels. And … through this revision, the government wants to improve investment licensing to attract more foreign investors," claim CNN Indonesia.

Luhut Panjaitan, Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs, told local newswires President Jokowi has given him just one month to complete the revision of the 72-existing regulations, as Indonesia is currently one of the most complicated country's in ASEAN for investment because of outdated and overly-complex licensing regulations.

Proposed changes to existing build permit regulations does not mean developers will be left unregulated. Image by Jean Paul Jandrain on Pixabay.

Current system open to abuse

During a recent Indonesia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) meeting on the property sector held in Jakarta, Sofyan Djalil, Agrarian and Spatial Planning Minister and Head of the National Land Agency, said the current IMB system was open to abuse and will be revamped.

According to Detik Finance Djalil went on to suggest licenses are not effective because violations still occur frequently. For example, "a permit can be issued for a 400-square metre building, then the developer builds an 800-square metre building, but does anyone care?"

The clear implication behind his rhetorical question is "no, nobody does care," and abuse is both acceptable and normal, which in turn undermines investor confidence.

Ease of Doing Business

The government is aware of this and plans to "increase efforts to audit existing buildings and enforce the country's zoning and building codes," which are considered by many in the property industry to be a hindrance to investment say CNBC.

To illustrate the point newswires are quoting the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business report, which claims it takes more than 40-days and almost USD 5,000 for a company to apply for an IMB for a 1,300-square metre, two-level warehouse in Jakarta. A similar application in Kuala Lumpur takes just 30-days and costs around USD 860.

As permits are reduced and removed the number of building inspectors will be increased to ensure standards are met. Image by Pixabay on Pexels.

Permits replaced by standards

According to CNN Indonesia, Djalil did not confirm whether the entire IMB process would be removed or simply streamlined but in either case it would not mean developers will be left unregulated with no building codes or rules to abide by. He explained as permits are reduced and removed the number of building inspectors will be increased to ensure standards are met.

Djalil suggested "later we will change the permits to standards … this will be a paradigm shift. If you want to build a building, go ahead, but if you don't meet the standards, we will dismantle it. So, be responsible. If there are violations of the standards there will be severe and detrimental sanctions, even convictions," he said.

White House prepares to release whistleblower complaint to Congress as Pelosi presses forward

Bali and world news and views editor's comments:

All I can say is I hope the whistleblower is under top witness protection.

After all look what happened to Epstein.




Analysis by Stephen Collinson, CNN

Updated 0000 GMT (0800 HKT) September 25, 2019



Gabbard: Impeachment against Trump would be 'terribly divisive'
(CNN)House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took the momentous step of formally opening an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump on a day of stunning and breakneck developments in the Ukraine scandal.


The White House is making its own moves, making public a key telephone transcript and preparing to release to Congress a whistleblower's report as early as Wednesday, according to two sources familiar. 

Politico first reported the White House's intention. One source told CNN the whistleblower report is under review and going through declassification and could be released within hours of the transcript release.

The investigation will test accusations that Trump sought to pressure a foreign power -- Ukraine -- into effectively intervening in the 2020 election to damage one of his possible Democratic opponents, former Vice President Joe Biden.

"The actions of the Trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the President's betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections," Pelosi said in a news conference. "Therefore, today, I am announcing the House of Representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry."
Trump lamented the news in that it took the focus off his trip the United Nations General Assembly.

"Such an important day at the United Nations, so much work and so much success, and the Democrats purposely had to ruin and demean it with more breaking news Witch Hunt garbage. So bad for our Country!" the President.

Her decision elevates the turmoil and division whipped up by Trump's two-and-half years in power to historic proportions with massive political stakes for the 2020 election and beyond.

Pelosi, after months of trying to slow walk impeachment demands from her liberal base, elected to strike, despite the President agreeing to release a transcript on Wednesday of a call with Ukraine's President. Trump says the document will clear him of wrongdoing despite his public admission that he pressured Ukraine to open an investigation into Biden and his son -- a fact in itself that his opponents argue is a gross abuse of power.

There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden.
Only two Presidents were impeached in the first 223 years of US history -- Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Now there is the possibility it could happen twice in the last 20 years, reflecting the fractured state of a nation split down the middle that has been further polarized by Trump's presidency.

An impeachment inquiry would be the ultimate showdown between House Democrats who believe they were handed power in the midterm elections to constrain Trump, and a presidency that has repeatedly ripped democratic norms and tested the Constitution itself.

Unfolding events

Trump says he will release Ukraine phone transcript
Tuesday's developments unfolded at staggering speed in Washington and in New York where the President's "America First" speech to the United General Assembly was overshadowed.
Trump decided to release the transcript under fierce political pressure over claims, first triggered by a whistleblower's complaint, that he threatened to withhold $400 million in military and security aid to force Kiev to open an investigation into his potential 2020 rival Biden and his son, Hunter.
There is no evidence to support claims -- made in public by Trump as recently as Tuesday morning -- that the Bidens had corrupt dealings with the former Soviet Republic.
At the United Nations, Trump put forward an alternative, retrospective justification for delaying aid to Ukraine ahead of his call to Zelensky on July 25.
He said he wanted to wait for European nations to contribute their fair share.
Later, the President insisted in a tweet that his decision to provide the declassified, unredacted transcript -- opposed by senior aides -- would show that there was no quid pro quo offered to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
"You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!" Trump tweeted.

Some senior Democrats however insist that there need not be a quid pro quo for Trump to have committed a "high crime and misdemeanor" needed for a President to be impeached.
Cook
The simple fact of a President asking a foreign leader to investigate a domestic political opponent is seen by many legal and political commentators as an abuse of power.

Pelosi's strategy

Nancy Pelosi is expected to announce launch of formal impeachment inquiry Tuesday afternoon
In an appearance in Washington, Pelosi warned: "The President is making lawlessness a virtue in our country."
The House speaker did not specifically commit to an impeachment inquiry in the appearance and it's possible that the facts of the case will not merit, eventually, a full House vote on the question.

But she shifted her position as a political torrent changed the shape of the impeachment debate in Washington. A number of moderate swing-state Democrats who she had been trying to protect, moved to the impeachment side of the argument.

She said that the nature of Trump's alleged offense was clear -- a factor that might have changed the political equation.
"This is the most understandable by the public. And It's really important to know this. There is no requirement there be a quid pro quo in the conversation," she said. "You don't ask foreign governments to help us in our election. That's what we try to stop with Russia. It's wrong."

Pelosi told her caucus that the impeachment would center around six House committees already investigating the President. It would be up to the Judiciary Committee eventually to decide whether to advance Articles of Impeachment. If the full House votes by simple majority to impeach a President his trial then takes place in the Senate.

There is so far no suggestion, however, that staunch Republican support for Trump in the GOP controlled chamber is waning. That means the two-thirds majority that would be needed to convict the president on Articles of Impeachment and to oust him from office looks at this point unlikely to materialize.

Like Pelosi, Biden also seems to be calculating his political position. As the subject of Trump's attacks and the Democratic front runner, he is in a unique position in the cascading drama.

In an on camera appearance apparently meant to project presidential gravitas and temperament, the former vice president said that if Trump failed to provide information about the case, he would leave lawmakers with no choice.

"Denying Congress the information, which it is constitutionally entitled to, and obstructing its efforts to investigate actions is not the conduct of an American president. It's an abuse of power," Biden said.
"Donald Trump will leave Congress, in my view, no choice but to initiate impeachment. That would be a tragedy, but a tragedy of his own making," Biden said.

Obstacles



Joe Biden: If Trump doesn't comply, Congress must impeach 02:11

Democratic reluctance to move ahead with impeachment, despite what many in the party see as gross abuses of power revealed by special counsel Robert Mueller, has partly been based on fears of igniting Trump's base and causing a 2020 political backlash.

Impeachment -- that can result in a democratic election being overturned -- is the most serious and consequential political maneuver available under the Constitution. 

It would tear at the fabric of the nation and trigger incalculable results and political forces that could reverberate for years.
In another potentially enormous development, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff announced that the whistleblower who filed the complaint about Trump's conduct, wants to speak to the committee.

The whistleblower has requested guidance from acting DNI Joseph Maguire on how to do so, Schiff said. Maguire had been under pressure from the White House and Justice Department not to turn over the whistleblower's complaint, but that appeared to change late Tuesday, so it was not clear how realistic are Democratic hopes of hearing the testimony.

Trump made the decision to release the whistleblower complaint on Tuesday, a source familiar told CNN. It's unclear what is behind his change in position, though Pelosi told lawmakers she pressed Trump during a Tuesday phone call to release the complaint.

Two White House officials downplayed expectations for any bombshell revelation in the call transcript, saying it is expected to be "underwhelming."

One of the officials conceded that makes the release of the whistleblower complaint that much more important. But the official raised questions about the credibility of the the administration employee who filed the complaint about Trump's interactions with the Ukrainian President, referring to the employee as "the so-called whistleblower."

CNN's Pamela Brown and Evan Perez contributed to this report.

GREAT INVESTMENT - EXCEPTIONAL RETURNS

Whether you buy this freehold villa as an Indonesian or with 80 years of leases for foreigners included there's no question that you will make extraordinary appreciation plus rental income if you simply decide to own it as an investment property.
The math is quite simple It cost you $184,888 U.S.D. to own this property for 80 years or more. That's only $193.00 per month.

A villa of this quality with proximity to the beach can easily rent for as little as $1,500 per month to $2,000 a month if you include the pool.

Therefore you're looking at a profit of as much as $1,300 - $1,800 per month.


A nice retirement income. As a result of these numbers, we expect many boomers will buy one for semi or full-time retirement and one or two more for investment.

After all, it's nice making money when you live in Paradise and every day is a holiday.
