BJP propaganda model; US franchised revolutions in post Soviet Union space.
The author receives unsolicited e-mails , despite my protests , full of crass BJP propaganda promoting its PM candidate Namo ( short for Guantánamo )on a regular basis.. Like Gujarat for Muslims, Modi would transform our country into Guantánamo, a US created Gulag on the island of Cuba, where Muslims, many totally innocent , have been held under terrible conditions since 911, with little chance of escape or being free.
I had written a number of articles when after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the so called US democracy promoting outfits, many supported by CIA, helped USA to organise street revolutions, beginning with Serbia than in Georgia, failed in Belarus, but when attempt was made in Uzbekistan, its president Islam Karimov threw out the Americans based on its airbase.US outfits succeeded in Ukraine, but with open some support from EU and American government officials, clashes are now going on in the between those who want to be close to Russia and those who want to join EU. In Georgia, the US supported President has been weakened after the last parliamentary elections .
Some extracts from;
In Ukraine, a franchised revolution
By K Gajendra Singh
One of the most active "pro-democracy" groups in Ukraine's democratic opposition is Pora, which means "it's time". The student activists of Pora received personal tutorials in non-violent resistance from Serbian students of the Otpor ("resistance") group, which was in the forefront of toppling Milosevich in Belgrade. Then the Serbs helped the Georgian vanguard movement Kmara ("enough is enough"). So a Georgian flag was also being waved in Kiev's Independence Square. In Tbilisi, the rose-revolutionary Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili interrupted his first anniversary address to offer a few words of encouragement in Ukrainian to his "sisters and brothers" in Kiev. The reawakened cold warriors link the "chain of Europe's velvet revolutions" in this peaceful march of democracy to what the crowds first chanted on Wenceslas Square in Prague in November 1989. So a jaded pro-democracy Lech Walesa was there too in Kiev, just as he had been in Prague.
Pora's posters plastered all over Ukraine depict a jackboot crushing a beetle, an allegory of what Pora wants to do to its opponents. It was like this during Nazi-occupied Ukraine, when pre-emptive war was waged against the Red Plague spreading out from Moscow. Nobody in the West has said anything against these posters. Pora continues to be presented as an innocent band of students having fun. But it is an organization created and financed by Washington, as were sister organizations in Serbia and Georgia, Otpor and Kmara.
But experience gained in Serbia, Georgia and Belarus has been invaluable to the US in planning the operation in Kiev. It is thus easy to understand such slickly organized spontaneity. The operation - engineering democracy through the ballot box and civil disobedience, which would be the envy of even a Gandhian - is now so smooth that methods have matured into a template for winning other people's elections. Located in the center of Belgrade, the Center for Non-violent Resistance, staffed by computer-literate youngsters, is ready for hire and will carry out operations to beat even a regime that controls the mass media, the judges, the courts, the security apparatus and the voting stations.
The Belgrade group had on-the-job training in the anti-Milosevich student movement, Otpor. Catchy, single-word branding is important. In Georgia last year, the parallel student movement was Khmara. In Belarus, it was Zubr. In Ukraine, it is Pora. Otpor also had a potent, simple slogan that appeared everywhere in Serbia in 2000 - the two words gotov je, meaning "he's finished", a reference to Milosevich. A logo of a black-and-white clenched fist completed the masterful marketing. In Ukraine, the equivalent is a ticking clock, also signaling that the Kuchma regime's days are numbered. Stickers spray paint and websites are the young activists' weapons. Irony and street comedy mocking the regime have been hugely successful in puncturing public fear and enraging the powerful.
It is claimed that officially the US government spent US$41 million to fund the year-long operation to get rid of Milosevich from October 1999. In Ukraine, the figure is said to be about $14 million so far. ---
Promotion of democracy around the world is a bipartisan US effort; the Democratic Party's National Democratic Institute (NDI), the Republican Party's International Republican Institute, the US State Department and USAID (US Agency for International Development) are the main agencies. They are all involved in these campaigns and are further helped by the Freedom House NGO and billionaire George Soros' Open Society Institute. US pollsters and professional consultants are hired to organize focus groups and use psychological data to plot strategies.
Bharat Ratna Dr. CNR Rao on politicians & 'Indians' nationalism'
Bharat Ratna scientist CNR Rao called politicians idiots and added "Indians, don't work hard, like Chinese. We are not as much nationalists... If we get some more money we are ready to go abroad."
This is quite true that Indians are not patriotic and very selfish. Americans of Indian origin have even less that and are sold on the American's worse kind of philosophy and policies, barring some exceptions. It is no-brainer that the Indo- American nuclear treaty was signed to strengthen Washington hands to corner and browbeat Iran on its nuclear fuel enrichment for which it is entitled under the NPT. It was one of the most stupid mistakes made by the Indian government and India has and will pay the price sooner or later. The support from Americans of Indian origin came because many of them had hoped to benefit materially by sale of third-grade American nuclear generators without any safety safeguards and escape as after Bhopal's 1984 Gas catastrophe. When this did not materialize, the current American ruler, Obama was even reluctant to give a photo opportunity to him American presidents loving and IMF pensioner, MM Singh Kohli.
Americans of Indian origin are doing well , with many with Hindutva tendencies .Many believe like BJP extremist in India, that New Delhi should deal with Pakistan as Israel does with poor Palestinians and its Arab neighbours. It is easily said than done, because Tel Aviv has at least 200 nukes, while Arabs have none, not yet even Iran. Let that pass.
Indians with Hindutva tendencies in USA are particularly well established in the information sector and are suggesting and have in fact tied up with their counterparts in India in bombarding Indian citizens praising the quality of Narendra Modi, under whose rule thousands of Muslim were massacred in Gujarat in 2002 . As a recently retired Supreme Court Justice Singhvi had bemoaned at a seminar in Chandigarh some years ago that there was very little justice in India .The courts are used for litigation by the powerful and the rich. Especially politicians, who have all means to delay and escape justice .Himachal Pradesh leader Sukhram and Laloo Yadav are some of the examples .It is very easy to coerce and bribe police officials, especially those who have retired. When a change of government in New Delhi could bring about tens of thousands of crores of rupees in bribes, it is a petty sum, even tens of crores, which can u-turn the honesty, integrity of retired and even serving police officers. So the BJP and its media and its supporters take the line that Namo has not been convicted. Like in case of Yadav and others where cases keep on dragging for years.
Following are some extracts from an article indicating how and what type of Digital technicians are combining from India and USA to promote Narendra Modi's cause in India.
Before Bhoopalam Gopalakrishna Mahesh, 46, became one of the technology brains behind the digital branch of the Narendra Modi campaign; before he started Oneindia, a news portal that provides news in seven languages to around 18 million people a month; and before he became a poster-boy of sorts of the short-lived Indian dotcom boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s, he was, quite simply, the man behind Mahesh.com.
Non-resident Indians (NRIs), especially those with a long memory— rare in these attention-deficit times—still speak fondly of Mahesh.com, a website launched in 1995, that was among the first to offer India-specific news to NRIs.---
According to , Oneindia attracts close to 7.5 million unique visitors in India and the total number of page views is 159 million.
In 2010, Jain's acquired Greynium. "Rajesh Jain and I knew each other since 1997, given the fact that the (number of) online entrepreneurs was so small that everyone knew everyone else," says Mahesh.
It was Jain who convinced Mahesh to work with Modi.
Modi and Mahesh
Mahesh found himself in the headlines after newspaper reported on 3 July 2013 that Modi had identified him and Jain to run his digital campaign.
Several urban legends have sprung up around Mahesh—some paint him as a digital mastermind controlling the entire digital Modi-for-Prime Minister campaign. Others see him as the man behind the BJP's aggressive social media presence. The reality is much more prosaic, says Mahesh.
Niti Digital is promoted by Jain "to transform India", and has teams across cities running niticentral.com, IndiaVotes.com and India272.com. Mahesh's job is to mentor this team, he says. Mahesh is also the man behind the vernacularization of the Modi campaign, say three people familiar with the matter, all declining to be identified.
Mahesh himself is reluctant to provide more details of his involvement in the Modi campaign. He signed up, he says, because the Modi campaign was the first to reach out to him, although he says he is convinced "Modi will deliver and 2014 will be a unique election". He has never met the Gujarat chief minister.
Mahesh points to a recent survey on the significant role the digital medium will play in this election as proof that the Internet will play an important role in attracting young voters this election year.
"You must also have seen the recent census data," Mahesh says, referring to the number of young and first-time voters. According to the census, there are close to 150 million first-time voters between the ages of 18 and 22. "Getting them registered is the biggest challenge in this election. Technology will play an instrumental role (in doing this)," he adds.
"From my part, there are no expectations. I don't want to be acknowledged or something, I just feel Modi can deliver good governance and if I can help in that, I am happy to do so," Mahesh says.
One of the interesting articles which is being circulated, its title and some extracts given below, suggests that the recently triumphant Aap party is being financed by American organisations similar to the ones which had supported the pro-US upstarts against pro-Russian rulers in East Europe and Central Asia.
The CIA uses philanthropic foundations as the most effective conduit to channel large sums of money to Agency projects without alerting the recipients to their source. From the early 1950s to the present the CIA's intrusion into the foundation field was and is huge. A U.S. Congressional investigation in 1976 revealed that nearly 50% of the 700 grants in the field of international activities by the principal foundations were funded by the CIA. The CIA considers foundations such as Ford. The collaboration of respectable and prestigious foundations, according to one former CIA operative, allowed the Agency to fund . The latter included groups beginning in the 1950s to the present.
By the late 1950s the Ford Foundation possessed over $3 billion in assets. The leaders of the Foundation were in total agreement with Washington's post-WWII projection of world power. A noted scholar of the period writes:
US Policies and India and AAP;
On December 4, 2013, the day of Assembly elections, Sheila Dished, 3 times Congress Chief Minister was asked about the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led by Arvind Kejriwal .She retorted "Who is Arvind Kejriwal? What is AAP?—"
Talking to media on Delhi Assembly polling BJP leader of Opposition in Upper House Arun Jailtley said pompously that AAP will not get even one seat. If it gets more than 6 he will leave BJP
US policies have always been anti India aka our national interests donot coincide with those of Washington. To hell with Indian interests. Right from our freedom ,in 1948, 1962, 1965 and 1971 , when uncivilized Nixon and war criminal Kissinger even sent its 7th fleet to the Bay of Bengal, India has suffered .They are always dividing nations ie Afghanistan , USSR, Yugoslavia ,Iraq, Libya, tried Syria and Pakistan is broken. I am sure Russia and China and even Iran would not like India to be divided. One Pakistan and long smoldering Afghanistan is bad enough for the region and Asia.
US was perhaps hoping and till 8 December 2014 , it looked BJP under Modi will have a walkover , who you know is very popular among Robber Barons of India .He has granted hundreds of thousands of crores of subsidies from peoples wealth to them. Such articles are perhaps a way to discredit AAP and Arvind Kejriwal. Let us wait what more comes out. India's corporate media whores and pressitutes are so nervous .Just watch the panic and rubbish they dish out daily.
Presstitute; Short for press and prostitute coined by trend forecaster Gerald Celente for journalists and talking heads who give biased and predetermined views in favor of corporations & the government .
Whore: (verb) to debase one by doing something for unworthy motives, typically to make money. -The New Oxford American Dictionary
The new party has scared the hell out of BJP, which was hoping to become the new ruler under a 'merchant of death' Namo as Congress called him. The Congress party knew all along that after the total misrule in the last 10 years, the public will throw it out. BJP was cocksure of replacing them. So the outcome of the Delhi assembly results have come as a shock, not only to Congress, but even the BJP, who did not take the new party seriously. You can see various BJP spokesmen or equally empty talking heads who till 4 December were very confident of replacing the Congress and becoming ministers of information and broadcasting and have other such important jobs. They are now very frustrated that the emergence of Aap party ( latest survey suggest that today Aap will garner 48% votes and perhaps win 5 or 6 out of 7 from Delhi of the Parliament seats)It has completely upset their electoral calculations. Many people believe that Aap can get as many as hundred seats in the next Parliament. It is said that Rahul Gandhi with his band of young leaders has almost decided to sit in the opposition at the centre .With Aap spreading its wings, it is possible that like in New Delhi where it is functioning with the unsolicited support of Congress party, a non-BJP government may be formed in New Delhi after the 2014 general elections for the Indian Parliament and keep and his baggage of sins out.
The new our party is having teething troubles as any new organization would have, but it is a hopeful and refreshing change on the Indian political scene where the polity has degenerated and reverted back to end Moghul era, totally corrupt, degenerated, cancerous when everything was for sale and had a prize.
This author has maintained that if Aap fails, which is still quite likely still ,because the political parties across the board have created a mafia style mention of corruption brick by brick over 60 years . It can not be easily dismantled .There can be a total disregard for any political constitutional form, and then chaos will follow. If Aap had not emerged chaos would have followed in any case. People are fed up with political parties and the system.
Necessity for change in the constitution of India and at least the electoral system
Day in and day out there are interminable discussions (by frogs in a well) o n the political situation and the political parties and elections on India's corporate channels which according to many belong to one major fat cat family .According to Radiia tapes ,it controls most ministers of the government of India, but none of these ill informed frogs and empty heads ever discuss that because the Constitution given to India by our so-called wise men is very flawed specially its electoral system. They had no idea except of the British constitutional system and they wanted to tell the British that they can replicate it .So they borrowed mostly the British system, which was suited only for 2 political parties system as it emerged in the political history of the United Kingdom .It is suitable only for an island and not for country like India with its diversities and problems it doesn't suit India. .But Britain had a Cromwell. .
It has been the author's case since long time that prime ministers and state chief ministers should be elected directly by the people on the basis of majority that is 50% plus one vote. India can change very easily to the electoral system of either two rounds or preference voting system by which the choice of candidates can be determined by 50% plus one vote. At the moment in India's massive state of Uttar Pradesh, with a population of 170 million, a regional OBC party with partial support of Muslims got a majority with only 29% of votes cast. I have no hesitation in saying that India does not have even a representative democracy. Forget about other its faults and shortcomings.
