United States – Warfare and Military Strikes

United States – Warfare and Military Strikes

Padmini Arhant

United States warfare and military aggressions using extra judicial powers at the executive branch is distinctive for a nation declared beacon of democracy with deep respect for national and international laws subject to own terms and conditions granting privileged status.

United States warfare, military strikes and other interventions in foreign land are consistent in justifying unjustifiable actions at executive discretions failing to provide evidence at every instance. The convention subjugates democratic system and constitution guided congressional process allowing debates, discussion and deliberation prior to any deployment of defense force and military assets in overt or covert operation.

In recent memory, United States invasion of Iraq under former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney in 2003 led to status quo in that nation and Afghanistan.

What was the premise for Iraq invasion?

Iraq’s alleged chemical weapons that were nowhere to be found or reproduced leaving the nation with mass graves and permanent damage including looting and plunder of Iraq’s artifacts, museum and cultural sites. Not to mention the generational suffering endured by Iraqi population with children born with congenital birth defects and other acute illnesses from the use of depleted uranium in Fallujah in Al-Anbar province and cluster bombs reined over Baghdad are mere examples of devastation.

The subsequent administration under former President Barack Obama scuttled Benghazi incident in Eastern Libya that claimed then U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and CIA intelligence personnel lives that remain unanswered until today.

Similarly former President Barack Obama administration’s involvement in Syria created ISIL, ISIS, al nusra front and the current IS in Syria spilling over to neighboring Lebanon, Libya, Iraq and Turkey.

In May 2011, President Barack Obama administration ventured into Abbottabad mission in Pakistan presenting the nation and the world with bizarre claim on the capture and killing of long gone al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Ladin who actually died in December 2001. He was diagnosed with renal failure and had dialysis treatments in Rawalpindi, Pakistan and Dubai, UAE.

Again when asked for evidence of Osama Bin Laden’s remains or his body from then President Barack Obama’s administration,

America and the world were informed of Osama Bin Laden’s remains to have been disposed in Arabian Sea in accordance with the mission architects’ invented islamic rites exclusive to that particular event.

Furthermore, the physical witnesses – the SEAL Team Six entire crew and other members deployed in Abbottabad operation were eliminated when the Vietnam era military Chinook helicopter they were aboard was shot down in Afghanistan despite United States and NATO presence in the territory.

The SEAL Team SIX family request for investigation into this strange incident with no survivors were slighted without any respect for the young victims in their early twenties whose lives apparently had no value for those in position of power and authority.

President Barack Obama aka President Obama  earned the coveted title Drone King not without any reason. President Barack Obama penchant for drone strikes chasing children, women, elderly and men of all age from their humble dwellings in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Colombia in South America, Mali, Sudan in Africa to name a few among many other near and far destinations is the highlight of President Barack Obama’s two term Presidency.

History repeating itself with the current administration under President Donald Trump aka President Trump, once a harsh critic of the above cited incidents as a civilian including during the Presidential campaign in 2016 vowing to American electorate to pursue the path of peace and not the one his predecessors treaded on with no accountability regardless of their respective political representation emerged a fierce competitor in this trend.

In light of these factual substantiations on misuse of executive power evading transparency and responsibility to the people of United States and especially citizens abroad irreversibly affected in the carte blanche authority waging warfare or military and other special operations seeking high value targets,

The congressional move to limit war powers at the executive branch setting precedence now and in the future is the preliminary and positive step towards peace besides safeguarding freedom and democratic values enshrined in constitution.

Last but not the least, all of the above mentioned violations by successive administrations constitute war crimes and political immunity in this regard is treason.

Notwithstanding willful conscious engagement is betrayal of public trust in the democratic setting.  The law applicable to all  exempting none above in a democracy would serve justice to victims and their survivors living up to the status as the land of justice.

Thank you.

United States Foreign Policy

January 6, 2020

United States Foreign Policy

Padmini Arhant

I begin with United States foreign policy in the new year 2020.

Who is behind United States foreign policy?

U.S. foreign policy is designed and delivered by organizations viz. Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and think tanks such as Brookings Institution, The Heritage Foundation, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, CATO and CSIS…to name a few besides influential lobbyists like AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee), Ivy league and other university faculty including Washington based agencies serving specific agenda, ideology and doctrine predominantly favoring core corporate and key allies’ economic interests and strategic dominance respectively in different regions worldwide.

These institutions and organizations are categorized as conservative, liberal and other positions in political thought process though invariably leaning towards hard line neo conservative aggressive policy in politics to benefit military industrial complex in the invasion, occupation and colonization of nations and neo liberalism in economic front to facilitate oligarchy market penetration and expansion in global arena.

How do these organizations and institutions implement foreign policy?

Their members are routinely appointed by democrat and republican administrations in key cabinet posts and sensitive roles such as Secretary of State, National Security Advisor, US ambassador to United Nations and defense ministry to enforce hawkish belligerent policy to retain status quo.

These organizations especially Council on Foreign Relations referred to as mothership in promoting U.S. foreign policy by former Presidential Candidate and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was by no means faux pas from someone having close ties with the organization as other prominent members in United States and international politics maintain not barring media hosts and diverse entities sharing common strategy.

Any government and leadership not towing the line to U.S. foreign policy are listed adversary and accordingly targeted with the most favorite western action i.e. economic sanctions stifling economic growth and development to the point of no return alongside the entertainment industry indulging in spoof, a parody of the tragedy experienced by victims – none other than the significant population enduring immense suffering and misery.

The entertainment industry by far is the chief and cheap propagandists for politics displaying callousness as comedy to appease political establishment and nefarious elements behind human plight adding insult to essence of artistic value, the standard entertainment world is expected to represent and conform with decency and ethics ominously missing in the quest for constant fame and publicity.

Alternatively, any nation or people resistance to U.S. foreign policy is met with violence through military intervention or terrorism having become the convenient source of aggression since September 11, 2001 and adopted with full authority in 2011 starting the Syrian warfare generating ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, al nusra and IS as they are referred to now.

United States legacy in international relations – the U.S. central intelligence agency (CIA) together with Britain’s MI6 and regionally Israel’s Mossad involved assassinations of top government heads and toppling people choice democratic leaderships through those nations’ political and military coup d’é·tat in covert operation up until the beginning of the new millennium transformed into direct overt engagement by United States State Department and the White House exercising extra judicial executions arbitrarily exploiting political immunity on all crimes against sovereign nations and humanity at large.

United States and Iran relations – Iran’s democratically elected popular leader Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh overthrown by United States CIA and Britain’s MI6 primarily for Iran’s oil resources led to tumultuous political upheavals holding Iranian population hostage to western diktat is a continuous trend.

From waging proxy war through former western ally Iraq’s then President Saddam Hussain against Iran for eight long years using U.S. supplied chemical weapons to Iraq at that time to prompting Iranian revolution preempting western backed monarchy of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi exit and Islamic cleric and leader Ayatollah Khomeini entry to and from western shores simultaneously is a memorable chapter in Iran’s political history.

The western interventionism unequivocally responsible for Iran’s nuclear program although Iran has demonstrated discipline and self-restrictions in containing nuclear capability verified and acknowledged by western authorized UN inspections and report thus far unlike western and other nuclear states record on nuclear proliferation and enhancement as an entitlement. United States response to nuclear treaty either with Russia or latest withdrawal from Iran’s nuclear deal under Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) are in clear violation of the agreement.

What does the west seek from Iran?

Having imposed draconian economic sanctions against Iranian citizens and subsequently on Iraq designating their once ally ex-President Saddam Hussein as dictator, the bone of contention for hawkish foreign policy stalwarts is inability to rein control over Iran’s political, economic and social structure while establishing permanent military base in Iraq and other parts of Middle East with main focus on Persian Gulf exacerbates situation in the region.

United States and Britain’s policy accommodate undemocratic regimes in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and their allies in the region providing artillery and logistic support to curb democratic movements until today with Yemen reduced to killing field depriving the poorest in this north African nation any chance of survival and hope in the absence of political stability.

United States together with western and middle east allies have caused tremendous deaths and destruction with the introduction of terrorism as the means to execute western foreign policy major goal viz. regime change wherever and whenever possible.

In the past decade, in the wake of so-called Arab Spring, United States along with coalition funded, trained and militarized al Qaeda forces relocating them from Pakistan, Afghanistan and north Africa to the middle east. The NATO ally Turkey and strategic partners Saudi Arabia along with Qatar, UAE, Kuwait and Jordan…contributed to terror infiltration and manifestation in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Libya, Egypt spilling across middle east.

Iran as a Shia majority in the midst arguably surrounded by volatility and contempt from within and outside the region. Israel as a potent nuclear state with United States, Britain and EU extended defense infrastructure perceive Iran as existential threat is an open secret. The other states Iraq, Syria and Lebanon identified in the Project for New American Century – mission from U.S. foreign policy architects for destabilization and eternal chaos confirmed in the aftermath of brutal Iraq war by former President George W. Bush proudly declaring the mission accomplishment in 2004.

Not surprisingly, nothing has changed in U.S. foreign policy regardless of administrations in power. The unjustifiable economic sanction intensified under then President Barack Obama administration resulting in innocent civilian casualties despite International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and regular UN inspections reporting on Iran’s commitment to nuclear non-proliferation.

The western stance on economic sanctions eased under JCPOA was more a face saver on the western policy under the pretext of binding Iran on nuclear pact. As mentioned above, according to various agencies and organizations monitoring Iran’s nuclear activity, Iran never exceeded threshold in uranium enrichment and always allowed independent and western authorized agencies for inspection of facilities verifying Iran’s non-nuclear status.

Under these circumstances, prolonging illegitimate economic sanctions and trade embargo limiting Iran’s oil trade to neutral trade partners globally was an extreme measure from the United States with little or no regard for any international laws.

Not to mention lack of fairness on ethical and humanitarian ground as these actions inflict pain and agony on average citizens in any country aimed at instigating political uprising against the government for regime change.

Again, as no western nation ever subject to any economic sanction or trade restrictions except for being on the other side imposing such decisions on non-western nations until now, the harsh reality is hard to be recognized for those not affected in the tradition to cripple economy and punish population with starvation, poverty and disease.

Iranian citizens and entire Middle East region deserve peace, political stability and long overdue economic growth and development denied with western policy on economic sanctions, terror sponsorship and persistent influence to configure political landscape against citizens interest and welfare leaving them at the mercy of merciless policy and stagnant environment.

It’s time to relent to peace and foster better relations with all nations barring preferences and prejudice to benefit mankind as collective progress is the premise for sustainable prosperity.

Thank you.

United States – Middle East Affairs

January 3, 2020

United States – Middle East Affairs 

Padmini Arhant

United States latest missile strike targeting Iran’s military commander General Qassem Soleimani beckons clarifications from President Donald Trump administration’s idea of peace. 

Is the assassination of a foreign high rank official regardless of diverse perspectives on the deceased profile, a demonstration of destruction of peace?

Could United States claim innocence when indulging in accusations and arbitrary military interventions with routine unilateral decisions on assassination of anyone not barring series of violations on sovereignty and integrity of other nations on earth?

What is the precise agenda behind designating Middle East – a perpetual war zone besides promoting military industrial complex incessant strategy to utilize the region for testing new weapons and technology, exhausting inventory to replenish weapons stock piles at the cost of millions of lives thus far?

Should citizens of nations under constant fire and infiltration via western power and allies sponsored terror as well as military base endure death, starvation and refugee status as their fate?

How long should the population in the Middle East and conflict zones subject to eternal bloodshed, immense suffering from economic sanctions – an experience never ever felt by any western nation in the world while being in the forefront to impose on nations of choice deemed adversary for defending sovereignty and natural resources remain at the mercy of supremacy syndrome?

Who created terror organizations like al Qaeda including the terror chief Osama Bin Laden with whom United States political family and Presidency of George W.Bush maintained trade and cordial relations well after September 11, 2001 attack in the United States?

How about the U.S. administration under former President Barack Obama direct involvement in the past decade generating terror outfit ISIS evolving into ISIL that is now known as IS?

There is a pattern for U.S. administrations – democrat and republican alike and allies to prolong the so-called war on terror despite them being instrumental in creating, fostering and funding terror since terrorism become the premise for exerting strategic dominance and economic interests in the Middle East and rest of the world.

Why is it necessary for hawks and neo con policy to dispense belligerence and bellicose rhetoric against nations at the expense of lives whether civilian or defense personnel to justify unjustifiable intrusions and presence in foreign land?

Warfare in military or terror format have consumed scores of innocent lives leaving significant population stateless and homeless in their homeland only to be rejected upon arrival on western shores, the same forces behind such activities and human rights violations with no accountability.

Not to mention the environment carnage affecting air, water and soil posing existential threat to humanity existence from shelling, bombing using nuclear component laden weapons and other arsenal endangering all species in the present time.

To all those for whom peace is antithetical for exclusive economic and political benefits, the era of violence and aggression is best left behind with a rational approach facilitating peaceful resolutions would be wise to prevent undesirable unsustainable outcome moving forward.

All must depart from this world at a certain time sooner than later that cannot he postponed indefinitely and will be judged accordingly that would determine their soul final destination.

Thank you.

India – Corporate run Government – Padmini Arhant

India – Corporate run Government 

Padmini Arhant

While Indian government and administration under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah are dedicated to contentious Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Registry Citizens (NRC) and now citing long existing National population registry (NPR) (census) to maneuver the embattled Hindutva ideology isolating specific demography in an effort to allocate vote banks,

The most favored corporate families viz Mukesh Ambani, Anil Ambani and Gautam Adhani among others in economic sector essentially run politics, economy, judiciary and media.

Not surprisingly, Reliance industries and Jio Telecom company CEO Mukesh Ambani reportedly per bloomberg.com adds $17 billion dollars to personal net worth in 2019 leading to individual total net worth at $61 billion claiming the status as Asia’s richest individual.

The corporate monopoly defiantly in gross violation of anti-trust and capitalist economy characteristics such as fair opportunity to all major and minor businesses to compete effectively enabling market determined factors to yield returns and profitability across economy rather than sole advantage to particular corporate group or family.

Furthermore, market economy benefitting consumers in terms of choices and options in quality, price and service is phased out in the prevalent economic environment.

The government pledge to protect selective corporate families interest at the vast majority expense where nearly a billion population is forced into record unemployment, inflation and sluggish economic growth arguably embarked on deflecting public attention from burgeoning economic strife alongside the meteoric rise of Mukesh Ambani and Ambani industries questionably held above law and exempt from transparency and accountability on tax compliance and various rules and regulations otherwise applicable to regular ordinary business entrepreneurs and retail merchants in the economy.

Indian population especially the educated and skilled youth in formal and informal sectors confronted with dismal economic and career prospects justifiably frustrated about status quo.

Indian government’s misplaced priority in enforcing laws and amendments on citizenship act causing unnecessary tension and anxiety primarily to distract citizens focus from chosen corporate expansion amassing personal wealth should be a grave concern for significant population struggling to make ends meet and overwhelming segments in abject poverty.

Corporate run politics and governments are not to be expected to bridge the gap between the haves and have nots when the system is solidified in quid pro quo for exclusive benefits and privilege.

Indian government and politics together bear responsibility for the ever increasing economic disparity and social inequality in society.

Indian citizens dealing with serious economic crises legitimately require to seek government action on reviving economy and immediate end to partisan politics premised on religion, caste and communal polarization.

Unless the situation and issues are addressed reversing the conditions, those reaping the harvest too would sooner than later experience the free fall of economy currently heading in the undesirable direction.

The prosperity of any or few depriving the rest from basic existence and survival is unsustainable resulting in inevitable negative outcome.

People power proved formidable in resisting unconventional practice and divisive politics.

Thank you.

India – Constitution and Democracy under Siege

India – Constitution and Democracy under Siege

Padmini Arhant

Reiterating earlier call for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah to step down from office in light of status quo specifically deteriorating law and order deploying undemocratic means using public funded law enforcement and other cadre to silence democracy resulting in innocent lives deaths and unlawful detention of peaceful participants voicing their legitimate concern over the unconstitutional Citizenship Amendment Act and religion biased Naturalization law. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah’s religion and caste oriented politics is the epitome of their political career. BJP government desperate attempts to distract citizens attention from burgeoning economic issues such as high unemployment in all sectors, agrarian crisis, decline in economic growth and productivity, massive banking fraud severely affecting banking industry creating panic and frustration among common depositors having lost all their savings earlier from PM Narendra Modi’s disastrous demonetization and now in the state run banks mismanagement of public funds allowing unscrupulous members associated with political parties and economic sector to default and abscond on government and political opposition watch is merely the tip of the iceberg.

Since assuming office in the second term touted as Modi 2.0 by state operated media and other communication outlets, PM Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah together embarked on controversial and counterproductive topics beginning with Article 370 abrogation, Criminalizing Triple Talaq (Divorce) among Muslim community while turning a blind eye to similar or worse situations among Hindus and other demography, declaring Lord Ram Temple construction through hamstrung Supreme Court’s final verdict on the embattled Babri Masjid (Mosque) site in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh comprising largest Muslim population…are BJP’s election manifesto preliminary actions. 

Lately, PM Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah rammed Naturalization Law and Citizenship Amendment Act cherry picking three neighbors in the entire India sub-continent and South Asia. They are Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh isolating Muslims in religion based asylum in the Northeast and rest of India. PM Narendra Modi justified the conspicuous discrimination against Muslims in this process stating they belonged to the majority in their country of origin compared to the BJP government empathized groups viz. Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Christians and Parsis in those three nations ignoring the persecuted Sri Lankan Tamils living in Indian Southern State Tamilnadu and elsewhere who are ardent followers of Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma  evident in Hindu Temples erasement in Sri Lanka during ethnic cleansing by recently re-emerged Mahinda Rajapaksha regime (not without backend international and Indian political maneuver) in Colombo.

Likewise, the ostracized Rohingya muslims as minority in Myanmar with children, elderly and women upon arrival on Indian soil were expelled on unsubstantiated terrorism charges by this government showing little or no consideration for gross human rights violations experienced by them in Myanmar.

The irony in the ongoing catastrophic strategy of transforming India into a Hindu State and welcoming Hindu minorities from Muslim majority nations in the neighborhood completely neglects the plight and miseries of so-called Dalits, Adivasis (Natives), Indigenous, Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, Backward Class, Other Backward Class (OBC) representing overwhelming majority Hindus subject to atrocities and extreme violence from Hindutva zealots under the pretext of cow vigilantes tied to organizations viz. Bhartiya Gau Raksha Dal / Indian Cow Protection Organization and other fundamentalist groups directly operating under RSS run BJP nationwide. Notwithstanding the land confiscations from various tribes and farmers to benefit certain corporate families like Gautam Adhani, Mukesh Ambani, Anil Ambani and the likes having close ties with the government and political class in general.

The interesting factor is the BJP government in New Delhi and other states /provinces have long been involved in beef export to near and far destinations amid fomenting violence leading to mob lynching on this issue against muslims and people determined as social outcasts referred to as Dalits in society.

Where is the humanitarianism from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah towards sweeping majority i.e. the designated lower caste Hindus enduring generational prejudice in urban areas and untouchability in rural parts of the country with the practice institutionalized in the past five years of BJP government?

The incumbent government’s consistent pattern in utilizing polarization politics to deflect mass grievance and anger over economic woes to BJP manufactured social and humanitarian chaos confirms the administration’s inability to effectively address the growing economic problems demanding prompt solutions that appears to be unavailable given the government priority on anything other than the economy.

The government selective raids and investigation on corruption scandals excluding large swath of members within and among alliances in addition to corporate favorites and celebrities in the entertainment with an alarming record of tax evasions, offshore hoarding in tax havens, black money and embezzlements reported in Panama Gate and other national as well as international corruption exposures barely attract the authorities interest.

Contrarily, in neighboring Pakistan, the Panama Gate revelation caused political storm ousting the accused former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and family with imprisonment freezing the assets of Sharif family for fraudulent dealings and illegal wealth amassment in the economically struggling nation with substantial population in abject poverty. 

India is no different in terms of impoverishment with the poor and poorest survival hanging in balance by the minute of their lives whilst the rich, famous and powerful stashing wealth overseas and in disguised investments lasting several generations are untouchable and held above law. The reverence and constant adulations of them making headlines and in news columns overcast criminal indulgence exempting them from any inquiry and rule of law.

Indian politics has evolved into betting, bidding and bareknuckle crony capitalism. The corporate run government with major political party deploying underhanded tactics to intimidate and lure members of opposition is heading towards consolidating power unbridled in enforcing and executing policies and agenda rejecting consequential upheavals from such endeavors. 

The fragmented and fragile Indian opposition fraught with internal strife pose no threats to the ruling BJP having successfully established the horse trading in forming or toppling government at regional and national level.

The opposition has no meaning or relevance witnessed in latest state assembly elections with parties forging alliance regardless of political ideology and platform sharing the common goal to access power even if that calls for alternating terms in office.

The victim in the current political, economic and social environment is none other than the average citizen. The middle class and downwards bearing the brunt of the escalating abuse of power targeting the most vulnerable and weak segments whether it be muslims or the economically burdened lower class confined to accepting government’s lack luster performance in the economic front unassailable.

History is testimony to events beyond threshold delivering outcome against anything unsustainable.

Indian democracy is indeed at risk and the nation beckons not only forward, progressive, open minds but also anyone who deeply care about their present and immediate future to rein in authority wasting taxpayer funds and national resources in unnecessary and futile exercise with serious repercussions.

Thank you.

India – Regime Change in Order

December 9, 2019

India – Regime Change in Order

Padmini Arhant

Whenever power is misinterpreted and misused, such actions ominously determine imminent demise of such power regardless of democratic status undermined and weakened to maintain radical rule.

The globalists backed current regime under leadership Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah’s fundamentalism having reached crescendo is an alternative to distract national attention on serious economic situation. The administration’s desperation is on display.

PM Narendra Modi’s rise to power primarily premised  on communal violence, divisive politics involving violent killings of innocent civilians of different faiths including followers of Sanatana Dharma that are otherwise known as Hindus is a widely known fact.

Casteism predominantly favoring politics long been considered potent tool in the divide and rule strategy adopted from colonial past and present. 

Religion on the other hand been effective in identifying majoritarianism for political mileage to politics lacking in prudent economic policy and reliable efficient governance.

PM Narendra Modi pledge of allegiance to crony capitalism in quid pro quo reflected in India’s ailing economy and precipitous decline of all things representing constitutionally set up laws and institutions stripped of their autonomy and independent jurisdiction to suit the administration’s maneuvering and mismanagement.

PM Narendra Modi and partner as well as BJP party President Amit Shah’s politics survive on devious tactics deploying bribes and back alley intimidations using public funded government agencies viz. Criminal Investigation Bureau (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Income Tax Department against members in political opposition and anyone raising questions against government’s lack luster performance on economy or general environment.

In the absence of economic growth contributing to soaring unemployment and  industrial gloom alongside rising inflation on produces like onions and other items, the incumbent PM Narendra Modi government hopelessly rely on religion and social issues introducing Citizenship Act inducting discriminatory Naturalization law targeting specific religious demography i.e. Muslims is least surprising.

Perhaps those behind the passing of legislation in Indian Parliament to isolate Muslims in India meticulously aimed at economically and socially vulnerable segments in society.

Otherwise, PM Narendra Modi’s affinity and affiliation to entertainment industry dominant with Muslim personalities would not be invariably provided immunity on crimes like hit and run man slaughter of a Hindu pedestrian belonging to poor family by Bollywood Actor Salman Khan protected by BJP government.

Similarly, the Bollywood Actress and BJP MP, the Muslim apostate Hema Malini responsible for the death of then three year old Hindu child not long ago in automobile collision let scot-free would not occur.

These Muslim film celebrities are granted impunity against crimes despite the loss of Hindu lives categorically verify BJP and PM Narendra Modi as well as Party Chief Amit Shah’s flawed agenda.

Politics never care for the less fortunate, deprived, disadvantaged and disenfranchised though they largely comprise the vote banks during election.

Politics run by the rich, famous and radical elements crave for controversy to masquerade colossal failures in policy, plans and programs if at all there were any to lead the nation in a proper direction.

PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah absolute control over media not barring the so-called alternative, independent sources airing online and via television networks are the worst as their true colors revealed in propagating government strategy and external forces scripts to stay alive.

The communication outlets not excluding social media IT sleeper cells recruited to assault government provided names notably segregated as arch nemesis in the whole operation. As a result there is no institution or medium that are not marginalized to serve government’s exclusive interest.

Indian electorate were adequately warned and advised against re-election of Narendra Modi Amit Shah government on this website well ahead of national election under the title

Re-electing Narendra Modi for second term would be a disaster for India. 

Yet this advice was not heeded and defied bearing the brunt of it today while some loosely letting their tongue to abuse me and hurling incessant insults much to self-detriment.

Needless to say those playing second fiddle to any regimes will always find scapegoat and accuse those whom they perpetually chase with their tirade and diatribe.

As for India’s political opposition, the members having fair share of skeletons in their cupboard are ideal for authoritarianism to emerge and flourish in power.

Opposition cutting a deal with ruling government to cover each other’s back is politics as usual.

PM Narendra Modi and HM Amit Shah’s apparent crusade is the beginning of the end of their undemocratic and unconstitutional authority.

Not to mention the sacrilege of religion i.e. Hinduism they claim to declare as their sole proprietary identity.

What is next for the regime?

Bull dozing Taj Mahal – that has generated enormous revenue and continues to be a cash cow in tourism for Hindutva domain Uttar Pradesh and New Delhi.

How about Qutub minar together with other famous monuments and tourist attractions that were built in Moghul era that has stood the test of time and worst periods like colonial parting gift – the partition of India?

The world has witnessed the rise and fall of authoritarianism often led in a manner like an unbridled horse headed over the cliff.

Is this the leadership of PM Narendra Modi desired and cheered for when the supposedly democrat former President Barack with a middle name Hussein Obama exercised executive power and intervened to bail out colleague and friend Narendra Modi in U.S. lawsuit on human rights abuse and 2002 riots in Gujarat under then Chief Minister Narendra Modi?

How about the next door neighbor Pakistan’s cricketer turned Prime Minister Imran Khan rooting for re-election of PM Narendra Modi in 2019 only to deny Indian Muslims their citizenship and statehood?

Notwithstanding the Russian President Vladimir Putin bestowing PM Narendra Modi with the coveted civilian honor right in the middle of Indian general election to prove Russian influence on elections anywhere in the world.

The global samaritans did not want to be left behind in this race. Accordingly, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation honor PM Narendra Modi with the humanitarian award as a slap on the wrist of all those victims having suffered and enduring pain and agony throughout Narendra Modi’s political tenure.

Last but not the least, the muslim states – Maldives to Middle East viz. UAE and Saudi Arabia awarding Mr. Narendra Modi despite the plight of muslims in Kashmir and all over India under Chief Minister and Prime Minister Narendra Modi could only be happening in the world of politics where to each their own only matters.

What happens to the rest consequential to such phony accolades and titles is typically designated as the fate of the unfortunate.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi step down from power along with your party Chief Amit Shah and spare the nation as well as Sanatana Dharma from further misery and embarrassment.

For those countering in political class defense,

If not Modi then who?

India existed before and will continue irrespective of any regimes entry or exit from power.

None are indispensable. Neither are any exempt from Karma and individual’s karmic effects.

The world deserves optimism and opportunity for all not sinister activities designed to meander and misguide captive audience at will.

Thank you.

China – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

November 12, 2019

China – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Padmini Arhant

China’s OCD is related to illegal invasion, occupation of foreign land  viz. TIBET adapting colonial counterparts disorder in addition to repeat violations of neighbors i.e. sovereign nations territorial integrity via aggressive annexations and encroachment of land near and far.

China’s OCD is enabled by regional governments and authorities especially Indian government’s weakness to personal flattery in gifts, pseudo awards and honorary titles presented in the form of bribery to gain collusion in foreign influence and exertion of authority in not only Indian affairs but also in asserting regional dominance in the Indian sub-continent.

Accordingly, citizens in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka dealing with China’s consistent territorial land and river grab need to adopt this potent strategy as they cannot expect their governments to do anything since governments are run by foreign diktat and installed as puppet regimes to execute their lofty economic and political aspirations of foreign superiority reviving colonial era.

Citizens anywhere frustrated and concerned about China’s policy in Tibet, Hong Kong, regional and global matter could be instrumental in rejecting MADE IN CHINA goods and services as well as products manufactured in China by major Corporations ignoring China’s human rights abuse and blatant territorial disputes whether in Indian Sub-continent or South China Sea with Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines…to name a few reminding not only China anyone with imperialists ambitions to renounce subjugation, oppression and Superpower syndrome.

China’s economic status predominantly made possible by global consumption of MADE IN CHINA goods flooding international markets depriving ordinary citizens in developed and developing nations employment and business opportunity experienced in the past three decades facilitating China’s acceleration as dominant emerging economic power which in return exercised by China for illegal access claiming entitlement on foreign land and territories at will besides denying political freedom to citizens in China and the so-called autonomous states Hong Kong, Tibet and long contested Taiwan.

United States ongoing trade war with China is nothing more than a farce. United States having granted China Most Favored Nation (MFN) Status up until now by democrat and republican administrations as well as US Congress alike primarily in adherence to corporate lobbying to set up manufacturing base in China has led to China’s affluence in financing United States economy as one of USA’s major creditor holding upper hand in negotiations and the hyped TRADE WAR between the two equally spoilt economic defaulters at global expense.

China as a World Trade Organization (WTO) member along with enjoying veto power in defunct UN Security Council amid several privileges in various international body and institutions override China’s communist political platform that otherwise remains the bone of contention for globalists against Caribbean nation Cuba enduring economic sanctions lasting more than half a century for being a Communist remnant and similar impositions against socialists governments like Venezuela, Bolivia and many others in Latin America.

In other words, the global oligarchy presided politics worldwide tolerate Communism in politics as maintained by China which is not per definition of Communism as one might think such as distribution of wealth and power amongst all in the nation. In fact China in semblance with former Soviet Union, the authority anchored on concentration of political power amongst core members in China’s Polit bureau declining any hope for Chinese population within China to acquaint themselves and participate in real rather than symbolic republic status.

Global oligarchy have no problems with China’s Communism with the latter accommodating the former in economic front via foreign investments in China’s economy transforming China into global manufacturing hub regardless of labor force exploitation within China, environment slight by corporate giants and importantly the price paid by world labor force witnessed in rising unemployment in many economies and local export businesses deeply hurt in the process.

Unfortunately, expecting China to be a fair trading partner is wishful thinking as China is a known and an established procrastinator in this regard. China’s recent and past performance linked to arbitrary currency management for disproportionate self advantage as the least expensive import destination for western and many developing economies is a fundamental flaw aiding China’s insurgence in other critical economic concerns ranging from copyrights and patent infringement to technological innovations piracy escalating cyber warfare are merely the tip of the iceberg.

Interestingly, the outlook on US and China relationship as fierce economic competitors with demands on both sides to ease tensions in a way is paradoxical considering the dependency on each other with United States long been serving as China’s most favorable consumer market due to consumer buying power even in the toughest economic times unlike for example India’s huge population perceived as potential market for consumer goods that are hard to achieve given India’s present economic situation and Indian government failure on economic recovery.

China on the other hand is the multinational corporations desirable manufacturing base that compromise on labor wages, environment regulations and many relevant industrial compliance having direct impact on human survival and ecological sustenance.

The quid pro quo between oligarchy and China’s central authority flagrantly disregard domestic and foreign labor force plight causing hindrance to developing and industrialized nations’ economic growth representing the consolidated consumer market in the globalized economy.

Western perception of China as threat to their imperialist domain is a result of western policy benefiting China in many aspects with key factors enunciated above beginning with exempting China in every respect from political, economic, environment to technological circumventions that are otherwise dealt with western powers’ favorite decision viz. economic sanctions and diverse incursions against other nations generally presumed fair target.

Again this is western powers – both EU and United States common ideology typically falling in obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) symptom in producing and fostering archetype at humanity’s cost then later justifying their indulgence through military interventions or terror sponsorship prevalent in the Middle East and throughout world to topple governments and regimes initiated and promoted by them.

As far as China’s ongoing irritant trade, sovereign territory infiltration and trespassing in neighboring Nepal, occupied Tibet, Indian North East and elsewhere must be contained and every citizen possess this inalienable right to deter existential danger to them and their national sovereignty.

The most effective of all would be to ban CHINA products and services sending a strong message to corporations that the ultimate right to determine the corporate and political empire rise and fall remains with the end consumer.

Chinese authorities are urged to respect neighboring nations sovereignty and international laws demonstrating China’s maturity and ancient civilization values to win trust of those treated as weak and vulnerable not necessarily without protection as the prosperity of anyone rely on progress of all around not the selective few.

Thank you.

India – Colonialism Elimination or Enforcement?

November 9, 2019

India – Colonialism Elimination or Enforcement?

Padmini Arhant

India – the nation and prominent members in society ever obliging in maintaining colonial legacy premised on hierarchy, prejudice, gender and communal bias entrenched in archaic casteism persistently suffer from severe identity crisis.

With governments run by global colonial diktat, the puppet regimes installed in power are expected to display nothing but obedience and acquiescence to their masters who in return regard selves as eternal beings running a muck at own peril.

Europe as the colonial dais and remaining so until today with economy surviving then and now from colonized nations wealth and resources that continues until today in attracting illegal illicit funds linked to black money, tax evasions, embezzlement, human trafficking, sex trade, extortions and various nefarious unscrupulous dealings hoarded in Swiss banks vaults encrypted in secret codes not surprisingly willful offenders’ sought after destination.

India in particular boasts colonial pride and over two hundred years of brute imperialism cherished as tradition in modern age. Indian society subject to repressive rule demonstrated in evaluation of individual skills predominantly tied to english language.

The assessment on individual’s intellect and aptitude is largely related to proficiency in foreign language english. Accordingly, the prevalent colonial lexicon recognized as official language of India.

Indian Congress political party having originated from colonial entity Alan Octavian Hume founded Congress party on the one side and the other RSS representing Hindu fundamentalism alongside Muslim league fostered and buttressed by the same colonial rulers infusing divide and rule strategy adapted until now.

British Raj implemented several laws to prolong oppression and colonization with little or no respect for human lives and civil rights retained by Indian political parties alternating to power is yet another example of Indian governments subservience to imperialism.

Indian politics and upper echelons flirting with colonial past and contemporary globalists strictly for personal and vested interests is ongoing custom.

The false assertions and nuances on eliminating colonialism and Mughal invasions insignia while embracing embarrassing episodes and characteristics in Indian history aptly reflect political convenience.

The point in reference is the interim RSS controlled BJP government not without foreign power management touting the latest Supreme Court ruling on controversial Ayodhya matter in their favor as the path to declare India – the Hindu State serve nothing more than a desperate need to deflect depressed public attention from declining economic situation.

BJP members statements on the ruling party erasing British Imperialism symbols and remnants apparently not extended to political system and policies that would determine reality.

Furthermore, removal of Queen Elizabeth statues and changing the streets and roads names amid efforts to honor RSS political activist, Hindutva ideologue and chief architect Vinayak Damodar Savarkar with India’s highest civilian award – Bharat Ratna pronounce duplicity.

V.D.Savarkar having buckled to British Raj, engaged in strengthening British Raj atrocities in India by recruiting young vulnerable Indian citizens to serve the imperialist army besides implicated in Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination speak volume on Indian politics’ treason albeit intense in the present time.

In the height of overarching practice to imperialism and current globalists demands, Indian political class and affluent elements reaping undeserving benefits from external power appeasement is the continuing Indian saga resisting renunciation of homogenous trait.

India is anything but an independent nation evident in India’s pledge of allegiance to the fake crown proclaiming India as dominion republic in the official treaty.

India’s rich, famous and powerful stashing wealth offshore enriching foreign economies and occupying positions of power and authority in politics, economic, entertainment sector…deprive overwhelming majority the due economic progress and development.

Thank you.

Politics- Political and Electoral Reform

October 12, 2019

Politics – Political and Electoral Reform 

Padmini Arhant

Those who sell their SOUL would have no problem selling anything whether it be nation they lead rather mislead into economic ditch or destiny of the population electing them as the head of the state and representatives of every constituency.

Politics is nothing more than theatrics and accordingly the strong relation between entertainment world and politics instrumental in distracting public from reality evading transparency and accountability using scapegoat on their indefensible economic debacles.

Today’s regimes in control of affairs need to acknowledge own follies, shortcomings and acutely deficient skills to deal with challenges created by them.

There is one thing about hogging undeserving glory through event management at ordinary lives expense. There is yet entirely another dimension demanding glory hogging and publicity starved personalities to live up to the grandiose image marketing miserably falling short in credibility and integrity.

Election anywhere is meaningful and purposeful unless the electoral process meet the following criteria.

1. Eliminate electronic voting machine or EVM and substitute with manual voting accompanied by verifiable voter paper audit trail VVPAT providing every voter casting vote receipt with confirmation of candidate, political party and any legislation propositions they voted through ballots for individual and national tally on election result day.

EVM is irrefutably proved to be managed with preconfigured software designed to generate election results in major political parties favor.

2. Eradicate black money, slush funds, electoral bonds and campaign financing from personal money laundering and corporations buying candidates and political parties forming corporate run government.

Instead, every voter must demand public financing with a cap in election spending barring negative smear nonsensical campaign advertisements premised on divisive, polarization politics.

Every citizen granting approval through vote insist candidates regardless of political positions from local legislators to the highest as Prime Minister or President only address issues that matter to citizens such as economy, crime in society in national security and measures to improve infrastructure.

3. Boycott rally of any candidacy indulging in delusional politics sowing the seeds of hatred, prejudice, communal and religion…making their way into Parliament or Congress deploying divide and conquer strategy.

4. Abandon celebrity worship and reject political parties as well as candidates fielded on glamor and glitz while miserably lacking in substance and ingenuity.

5. Similarly every voter should remind political members of their constitutional duty and responsibility to fulfill their pledge to serve people of the entire nation not just the rich, famous and powerful in society.

Again  political figures on public funded payroll and benefits are citizens’ employees not rock stars or messiahs as the political trend transformed in the past decade against democratic norm.

6. Every candidate running for public office to submit complete profile and made public with cross verification. Anyone with criminal and corruption record or charges pending trial should be declined by voter seeking clean and honest representation of them in Parliament and Congress. Likewise, deter candidates and legislators proven on corporate and special interests bandwagon and those determined to deter development among underprivileged and disenfranchised demography. 

7. A candidate of any political party including independent candidacy should not be allowed to run in more than one constituency. In facilitating candidate to contest election in two or more constituencies denies others a fair chance enabling the wealthy and any organizations institutions backed candidate and members of political dynasties to retain political power despite their ineligibility evident in other regions of the country. 

8. All candidates and political parties formal and informal funding to be revealed to public prior to election and cross checked by public. The data missing in this context would be a strong indication of sources behind political parties and candidates sponsoring them entirely in their interests not for ordinary citizens or national progress.

9. Shun media and press false propaganda and hyperbolic publicity of candidates and political parties ignoring their legacy and track record to sway public opinion to their preferred candidate’s advantage.

10. Every citizen – the electorate in emerging economies and developing nations in particular should not welcome foreign entities and powerful external forces influence, direct and indirect involvement maintained as tradition thus far to install puppet regimes and proxies to exploit population and extract natural resources in those countries at will.

11. Don’t be misled and misguided by foreign powers pseudo recognition of political leaderships of your nation with coveted honors and awards nearing national election as a blatant intrusion nominating their proxies exclusively for economic and vested interests.

12. Last but not the least, don’t accept bribes in cash or kind from political parties, candidates and their affiliates in disguise luring you to vote for them and in return seize your basic fundamental rights to everything as citizens importantly the economic opportunity and freedom of speech to discuss and debate government failures, actions and inaction concerning people across the spectrum and nation at large.

Every voter need to compare and realize their economic, social and political situation and general environment around them to evaluate government and leaderships performance rather than any other distraction via foreign or domestic solicitation. 

Unless every voter is mindful of the power in their hands to approve or disapprove governance and leaderships beginning at City Council, Municipal, District, State and National level, the status quo would remain leaving the poor the poorest, the selective segments isolated and marginalized as well as average ordinary lives struggling for generations with no end in sight.

Act now and SAY NO to negative, corrupt and counterproductive politics.

Thank you.
