The changing fortunes of countries…

Scam road-sign-464653_960_720In the run up to the 2014 elections it felt as if India had the worst democracy in the world. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was the worst Prime Minister ever. His remote control Sonia Gandhi was the worst politician ever. Pappu (Rahul Gandhi) was the worst hope ever. 2G made it to an international magazine’s list of most Top 10 Abuses of Power at No. 2, second only to Watergate.

Then we had Coalgate, which was estimated to be bigger that 2G! And the scandals kept coming and coming… Commonwealth Games scandal, the AgustaWestland scam, National Herald land grab, Radia controversy, Kerala solar scam, IPL scandal, Tatra scam, ISRO scam… phew! Congress was definitely the worst party ever as even development and governance came to a total halt.

Assam person-690245_960_720But now the tables seem to have turned. India is by far the world’s largest growing economy among large countries, is finally on the road to 100% electrification, has built a record number of toilets in history, rural LPG connections and rural bank accounts are soaring, it is becoming a solar power superpower, doing bold moves like demonetization and GST and our standing in the world order is steadily increasing.

Protest people-2575608_960_720The world is looking at America on the other hand with amusement as severe Trump Derangement Syndrome is tearing it apart. Suddenly a country doesn’t need borders, there are 60, 70 genders or as many as you want and being proud of your country is a bad thing.

We left booth capturing behind and nobody even remembers Bihar’s violent days where thugs would capture ballot boxes and stamp votes in the thousands. Now in America it is reported that the Democratic Party got truckload of votes after counting had almost ended.

Trump black-and-white-2590597_960_720The Democrats seem to stand for nothing but anti-Trumpism and seem far more unhinged than the Congress party ever was. Their rising star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems ten times dumber than Pappu, if that was even possible. Violent groups like Antifa are indulging in violence all across the country and some scenes resemble that of a Third World.

The 24X7 attacks on Trump and their absolute hatred has totally destroyed institutions like the mainstream media and academia. JNU now looks pale compared to the likes of protests in University of Berkeley and Green State University. Hollywood has dumped creativity and has become one long Social Justice Warrior shit fest.

brexit-2185266_960_720In June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union: And 2.5 years after Brexit the people of UK still don’t know whether they’re coming or going. In polls “None of the above” scored above both Prime Minister Theresa May and Opposition Leader James Corbyn.

Paris has seen the worst riots since the 1960s and President Emmanuel Macron’s approval ratings fell below 20%. Socialism was already destroying Europe even before the immigration experiment failed taking down German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

graph-3033203_960_720Of course the fortunes of countries go up and down suddenly. One minute the USSR was a superpower and the next minute it wasn’t. The same may happen to China if and when Communism collapses there. But right now Europe is on a downswing and India is on an upswing. Let’s see how long these trends last.

A New World Order begins as Global Elites finally get totally crushed

eye-3448137_960_720Many people complain of a deep high-level conspiracy that controls the world behind the scenes. Whether that is true or not, it is a fact that most of the global elites share a similar ideology and it’s not Capitalism despite the fact that they make billions off it. The loser Karl Marx continues to hold sway for these elites despite the fact that Marxism has led to the deaths of 100 million+ and a string of failed countries.

This “Push for Socialism” agenda has made some strange bedfellows…

marx-3788454_960_7201. Leftist parties like US Democrats, UK Labour, almost all the ruling European parties upto the 2000s, Indian Congress…
2. The global mainstream media.
3. Hollywood.
4. Silicon Valley billionaires.
5. Government universities all over the world.
6. Global Liberals, intellectuals, artists and the like.
7. The international NGO network.

social media hands-1167618_960_720They all want a powerful United Nations and European Union, draconian Climate Change regulations, open borders, fluid genders, a non-religious atheist worldview etc. They ruled till the 2000s via film, newspaper and TV propaganda. With the rise of Social Media, they thought they could control it through the owners. However they have been in for a rude shock and have been suffering one crushing defeat after another.

1. Donald Trump.

donald-trump-1332922_960_720This is the biggest earthquake of them all: Probably the biggest since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Trump hates the UN and EU, gives two hoots to Climate Change, wants a wall at the Mexican border, is dismantling the Obama gender regulations and has sought the support of the Christian Right. In short he stands for everything against the Global Elite. Everything!

The scary part for them is that he has the power to crush all their ideals. He was their worst nightmare who never could come true and who didn’t even have a 1% chance of winning, according to most of them. He couldn’t win. He did win. Now they have a full blown case of Trump Derangement Syndrome and are unable to function properly. Attack 24X7 without thinking seems to be their mantra and they are imploding thanks to this—for now.

trump-1976071_960_720In what could be called a contradiction or paradox or irony for them, Trump actually was the perfect global elite: A lifelong Democrat billionaire Liberal from New York who was the ultimate icon figure for whites and blacks alike. He should have been leading them and not fighting them in 2016. But now they are on opposite ends and it’s all quite fun, actually!

2. Brexit- EU.

brexit-2123573_960_720For years Europe has been the Fountainhead of Socialist Garbage and the rest of the world has been crushed under its ideological influence. They got their man in the White House in 2009 and Canada went dark under Trudeau in 2015. Hillary seemed to be cementing the Global Socialist Garbage Network, but then Trump happened.

Actually something happened even before Trump. Brexit. Europe fought itself to destruction till World War II and united only after. The European Economic Community (EEC) was formed in 1957 and the EU formalized in 1993. Then we had the Eurozone with the Euro banknotes. The EU became a monolithic structure with the Lisbon Treaty in 2009 and got the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012. It was easy to predict that it would be a dictatorship free to pursue its socialist global agenda at that time.

Merkel-1123308_960_720However there were already rumblings with the Greek economic crisis and the power of Germany. But Brexit totally tipped the scales. After Brexit, it’s been totally downhill for Europe. UK is in limbo. Merkel is finished. Paris saw its greatest riots since the 1960s. Immigration is no longer an in thing.

Now a lot of European citizens want Brexit style referendums and for how long can various governments suppress them?

3. Narendra Modi.

india-712575_1920Actually the first global earthquake took place on May 16, 2014. That was the first time in Independent India history that any party got a single party majority other than the Congress. (In 1977, all constituent parties fought on different symbols and united to form the Janata Party). It was the first Indian party which wasn’t an outright Communist. Modi became the first Indian Prime Minister who gave two hoots to Lutyens Delhi.

The global elites would have loved to have the socialist beaten path walking Pappu who is one of them and would have done their each and every bidding. India is the largest democracy in the world and the fastest growing large economy and this first blow hit them hard, though Brexit was bigger and Trump the biggest.

2019 silhouette-3333895_960_720The elites fought Modi tooth and nail and lost big. While most of the people of India warmed up to Modi eventually, for elites, 2019 is merely an action replay of 2014 where a pliant party like the Congress has to call the shots at the Centre.

4. Climate Change.

park-city-1688712_960_720Global Cooling (busted) became Global Warming (busted) became Climate Change (difficult to bust as the climate will change with or without humans, but still busted).

Al Gore was the messiah but failed to win the US Presidency. But global elitist stooge Obama seemed to be delivering the goods. America finally became one of the 180+ countries to sign Paris Agreement in 2016.

The global elites danced with joy that their plan to control future fossil fuel usage of each and every country in the future seemed to be sealed, for “control” is what they desire. However Trump came, he saw and he withdrew and suddenly Armageddon was preponed.

apocalyptic-2392380_960_720Can’t predict the climate for the next 10 years. Can’t predict the economy for the next 10 years. But suddenly these Climate wizards can predict the exact impact of the climate on the economy for the years 2100! That’s more than 80 years away. It will be exactly 10% of the GDP for America, they say! I guess when you multiply two exceedingly complex problems, instead of being super-duper complicated, it becomes super-duper schoolboy easy!

Heard at the latest climate summit: The collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon! Global Warming is the greatest threat in thousands of years to the planet. Simply wow!

5. Palestine.

gaza-3829414_960_720In the above mentioned groups of global elites (Reminder in case you’ve forgotten: Left parties + media + Hollywood + Silicon Valley + academia + liberals + intellectuals + NGOs etc) Israel is the Great Satan and Palestine the harmless spotless angel that has to be saved.

The United Nations Human Rights Council was formed in 2006 and since that has passed so many resolutions against Israel that they surpass those against other nations. The number of total UN resolutions against Israel since its formation run into the hundreds.

This despite the fact that the current Communist Chinese government has killed or tortured or imprisoned tens of millions of its own citizens. Ditto for the USSR.

This despite the fact there are so many outright dictatorships still functioning today.

This despite the many sectarian religious and terror related wars raging all across the world, especially in Africa and the Middle East.

israel flag-186476_960_720This despite the fact that Israel is the only flourishing democracy in that region, despite being attacked again and again by its neighbours regularly in the last century.

For some reason the global elites and Obama decided to make Iran the pivot of their Middle East policy: This despite the fact that Iran considers America as the Great Satan.

America used to be in a fix. In the Middle East its greatest strategic partner was Israel and greatest oil trading partner was Saudi Arabia. But the two were enemies. When they started warming up to each other, Obama curiously turned to Iran instead.

riyadh-2197496_960_720Then three landmark events happened…

In 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu was re-elected as Israeli Prime Minister contrary to all predictions.

In 2016, Trump won totally unexpectedly.

In 2017, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) became Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia out of the blue.

The three formed a secret alliance to bring stability to the Middle East and bring Iran to heel. MBS told Palestine to accept whatever peace offer they got and even denied visas to millions of Palestinians for Haj. The elites are simply fuming over Palestine.

Little ones lost too…

They have lost all the major battles but have lost the little ones too. They simply can’t stand a person like Rodrigo Duterte winning as President in the Philippines. He called Obama, who also happens to be the Patron Saint of Elites, “son of a bitch” and at another time told him to “go to hell”.

communist glitter-3146148_960_720When Communism/Socialism failed in USSR, the elites said, “It wasn’t done properly, it should be tried again”. The same was said for Eastern Europe, Cuba, North Korea and China even though Capitalism saved the latter.

But they know that people have short memories and most people know nothing about Mao and Stalin. That’s why the absolute failure of the socialist Venezuela has them livid. It is a current open festering wound that is getting worse by the day and seen by all.

Now they face the following nightmare scenarios which they will go all out to stop…

1. Trump getting re-elected and completely doing what he wants to in his second term and reshaping the Middle East with Netanyahu and MBS.

2. More and more European countries clamouring for an EU exit referendum.

3. Modi getting re-elected.

4. Right now they hate people attacking and rubbishing Climate Change. What could be worse than that? Why all the global citizens ignoring it of course!

Hat-trick!!!

iwo-jima-3820507_960_720The end of World War 2 in 1945 totally reshaped the world.

The fall of the Berlin Wall in1989 reshaped the world again.

The election of Modi in 2014 also started a new era and it is changing the world even as we speak!

Woman power sees a brutal and severe beating in the last few years…

Political disasters…

Sonia Gandhi: Indian Congress President Sonia crashed Congress to an abysmal 44/543 Lok Sabha seats in the 2014 general elections. The record low for Congress in the pre-Sonia era was 141. She ended a government which saw a record number of scams (with no close second).

hillary-1724469_960_720Hillary Clinton: She lost the 2016 US Presidential race despite running the richest electoral campaign ever and getting the complete backing of the entire global media, Hollywood, academia, Liberals, the sitting US President and even the rival Republican old guard.

Theresa May: Became one of the worst UK Prime Ministers ever getting regularly beaten by “None of the above” in surveys asking for the people’s choice as PM. For years she refused to neither implement Brexit nor scrap it outright.

dilma-1274007_960_720Dilma Rousseff: Did you know that if you take the Top 10 countries by population, then in their entire histories, there has been only one head of state who self-made and wasn’t of the dynasty. Yes, you heard it right. Only one! USA and China are yet to see a woman head of state. Indira Gandhi was Jawaharlal Nehru’s daughter. Benazir was Zulfikar Bhutto’s daughter. Megawati Sukarnoputri was Sukarno’s daughter and so on. The only self-made woman was the President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff. And she got impeached in 2016!

merkel-3464284_960_720Angela Merkel: The allegedly greatest German Chancellor Angela finally collapsed, crashing her legacy, her immigration policy for Europe and the EU itself.

Aung San Suu Kyi: The iconic Myanamar leader and darling of the Left-Liberal lobby till now, suddenly found herself a pariah even as her awards are being stripped over the Rohingya refugee crisis.

On screen disasters…

bb8-droid-1141513_1920Kathleen Kennedy’s abysmal “The Force if Feminine” flopped grandly with The Last Jedi under-performing and crashing the entire Star Wars saga which seemed invincible till now. Female actresses also flopped with the Ghostbusters and Wrinkle in Time reboots along with the star-studded Ocean’s 8. Women power seems to have done nothing to the Star Trek (Discovery) and Doctor Who (Jodie Whitaker) franchises too.

The #MeToo flop…

Woman-2003202_960_720The problem of crimes against women is the abysmally low convictions. That hasn’t changed in the #MeToo era. Can the punishment for rape be to lose one’s current job or project or film? In fact, in a backlash, men are already considering hiring lesser women, not being in a room alone with them (severely reducing their collaborating power) and the like.

Christine Blasey Ford became the first woman in history to get a global hearing and an appointment in the highest court in America (the US Senate) after giving zero evidence, zero leads, no venue of crime, no date of crime and initially not even a year of crime. Contrary to what you think, such a thing actually weakens the legal standing for women in the future. How many men have been convicted the world over as a result of #MeToo?

The Great Twentieth Century…

resistance-3553588_960_720Till the nineteenth century, women couldn’t vote, had many professions shut out against them, didn’t have access to contraceptives, sanitary napkins and more importantly had to have 5-10 children if their families wanted them too.

The Twentieth Century could actually be called the Century of Women thanks to all the tremendous breakthroughs in birth control, ballot boxes and professions of every walk of life. We had women fighter pilots and great heads of state like Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher. In many professions women actually started dominating.

There was a time when the best of women couldn’t even get entry into a man’s club. And today you took one of the worst politicians of all time and pushed her to the brink of becoming the most powerful person in the world. Such fake thrusts are bound to have pushbacks.

A Real Century for Women yielded dividends while A Fake Decade of Women looks to be blowing up in everyone’s faces.

Why Trump is a colossal failure and a grand success at the same time…

donald-trump-1269307_960_720If you believe in the Mueller probe…
…then why hasn’t he resigned yet? Why hasn’t he been impeached yet?
If you don’t believe in the Mueller probe…
…then he’s a victim and his opponents are attempting an unjust and unconstitutional coup and he’s fighting against all odds.

Why we’re living in the Golden Age…

golden rings-2634929_960_720Enjoy your peace, dear global citizens!

42 years since a man who killed 10s of millions in cold blood was alive. (Mao Zedong, 1863-1976)

57 years since a famine killed up to 43 million people. (The Great Chinese Famine, 1959-61)

dove-3426187_960_72073 years since a World War. (WW2, 1939-45)

73 years since atomic bombs destroyed cities. (Hiroshima & Nagasaki, 1945)

73 years since a dictator almost took over the world. (Hitler, 1945)

money-2180330_960_72079 years since The Great Depression ended.

98 years since a flu killed up to 100 million. (The Spanish Flu, 1918-20)

Even…
202 years since volcano eruptions decreased the average global temperature by 0.7 degrees C and resulted in severe food shortages. (1816, The Year Without Summer, caused by the eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815 and maybe Mayon in 1814)

forest-56930_960_720And don’t forget…
Today we have enough money, but just haven’t figured out how to distribute it equally.
We have enough food, but don’t know how to distribute it to everyone.
Life expectancy is going up.
Literacy is going up.
Number of democracies is steadily increasing.
Medical breakthroughs are increasing.
Murder rate is going down.
Extreme poverty rates are falling.
And just about anyone with a cheap smartphone has access to Information, Entertainment and Redressal, something totally denied to the lower classes for thousands of years.

Many problems are still there, but they are steadily are decreasing.
So why do we feel bad and think it’s worse?
Because our awareness is also increasing exponentially!

This is basically a rewrite of…
50 dangerous years that shook the world and how today’s great

5 reasons why the 2018 US mid-term election results were great…

31. The new ruling triumvirate shares power perfectly: Trump is a Republican but he could well be an Independent with a mind of his own. There were a huge swathe of Republican Anti Trumpers in 2015 and they have been reducing by the day, though they haven’t fully gone. So there are actually three power entities in America and not two: Trump, the Republicans and the Democrats.

And lo behold! The troika now share power and can check each other…
Trump has the White House.
The Republicans have the Senate.
The Democrats have the House.

smiley-2616203_960_7202. Tensions have been greatly reduced: The Dems lost sudden power in 2016 and went unhinged. Since then they have been spouting nonsense from the rooftops 24X7 and backing all manner of violent protests. Had they got nothing in 2018, then they would have gone one step beyond unhinged.

But now they have some power and hence some responsibility. They will continue to oppose Trump 24X7 but at the same time they will have to show some results via the House by 2020 and also focus within for the 2020 Presidential race.

handshake-440959_960_7203. Middle ground issues may finally be worked on: The media has pushed the accelerator on the polarization button and it seemed that there was no common ground for the Democrats and Republicans. Both the issues they are seeking became polarized too.

But now Trump will have to mediate and seek the middle ground to and get some results especially in terms of things like immigrations and healthcare. Obama ruled by executive decree alone antagonizing Congress and that’s why none of his legacies have lasted. Trump will now have to work with both parties but.

scared-2175161_960_7204. No real shock this time: Global citizens are reeling from failed predictions and things that were impossible actually happening. Trump can’t win! Brexit can’t happen. The Right cannot gain prominence in Europe! Even in India, nobody saw Narendra Modi’s BJP getting 272+ in early 2014 or BJP conquering state after state in the years after that.

But here the predictions actually went along predicted lines where the Democrats were slated to capture the House and the Republicans the Senate and Trump not losing much ground.

trump-2023751_960_7205. Growing interest in politics continues: Just 36.4% people voted in the 2014 US mid-terms, which was touted to be the lowest turnout in 70 years. However after that the 2016 US elections were probably the most followed ever.

Well the numbers continue and more than 100 million voted for the 2018 mid-terms. World over interest in politics is increasing and that’s a good sign.

50 dangerous years that shook the world and how today’s great

nuclear-weapons-test-67557_640If you think that you are living in really scary times, then spare a thought for those who lived from 1914-64, modern history’s most dangerous period ever. During these 50 years that shook the world, we saw two World Wars that saw the loss of more than a 100 million lives. It saw the invention of the atomic bomb which was used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and then came the even deadlier Hydrogen bomb.

It saw the Korean War where America and China almost came close to conflict. It saw the Cuban Missile Crisis, where America and USSR almost came to war. It saw the Partition of both India and Palestine—These problems exist till the present day and are now even nuclear flashpoints.

stamp-62921_640More importantly it saw the reign of three of the greatest mass murderers in world history—Mao, Stalin and Hitler—who together directly or indirectly killed more than 100 million people.

While the H1NI Swine Flu scare of 2009-10 claimed less than 20,000 lives worldwide, the 1918 flu epidemic led to the deaths of up to 100 million people—that’s about 5% of the population of the world at that time!

In fact it was an era where everything happened in millions. The toll of the 1931 China floods was 4 million. The Bengal famine of 1943 also may have seen up to 4 million dead. The Great Chinese Famine of 1959-61 saw 15 million deaths.

blue-mosque-1851032_640It was also catastrophic for the Muslim world because the last great Muslim empire or Caliphate, the Ottoman Empire collapsed in 1918. The Muslim world knowingly and unknowingly feels that vacuum and groups like Islamic State try to take advantage of that.

Americans saw their Vietnam War begin in the 1950s and there was the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s. For the Chinese angle, both the Tibet and Taiwan problems were created in these 50 years. The era’s Holocaust still weighs heavily on the Jewish mind.

woman-63191_640Finally, don’t forget—This era also had the Great Depression which destroyed the world economy!

Need one say more?

Inspired by the following quote by Thompson in the 2011 film The Adjustment Bureau

…in 1910 we stepped back. Within fifty years, you’d brought us World War I, the Depression, Fascism, the Holocaust and capped it off by bringing the entire planet to the brink of destruction in the Cuban Missile Crisis.

This was written in January 2016 and here’s an addendum on how blessed we are living in today’s age…

Peace1. There has been no World War for 73 years. Isn’t that great? Before World War I, Great Wars were common and genocides were common (100 million plus may have been killed by the Europeans alone in the Americas). Then there was just 21 years difference between the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II. Forget get a World War, there is nothing that can even be called a Great War for 73 years and counting.

soldiers-1002_960_7202. Imagine America conquering Iraq and making it its 51st State with an American Governor. Then imagine Syria becoming the 52nd State and so on. Well that’s what used to happen in the past. We take the era of independent nation states for granted and forget that the age of empires and colonies mercifully ended in 1945. We can’t have Hitler-Alexander-type conquests today.

gallows-858572_960_7203. Global murder rate is at an all-time low. Cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker wrote a book called The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined, the title of which is self-explanatory. He found that violence is down and the human race is getting more and more civilized contrary to what you think.
When man shifted from a hunter gatherer community to an agricultural one, the violent deaths decreased 5-fold. But from the Middle Ages to the 20th Century Pinker checked Europe, where records are well-kept, and found a 10 to 50-fold drop in homicides. The rate continues even today.

old-lady-845225_960_7204. Life expectancy up. In 1900, the average life expectancy was 31 and in 1950 it was 48. Today it is 70+. Overall violence is down, people are living longer and healthier.

5. Abject poverty rate crashing. From the 1990s to 2010s, more than 100 million Indians have dropped out of poverty while the similar rate for China is a stellar 700 million plus. Almost all the countries are reducing the number of their poor, just some at a faster rate than others.

mobile-phone-1875813_960_7206. Lower classes finally have access to full information thanks to mobiles. This is probably the most important of all. For most of the human race, the lower classes had no access to information. Now anyone who has an access to a cheap smartphone has access to all the information of the world, entertainment and even power of making his case heard through social media. This is another thing which we simply take for granted.

The biggest and grandest conspiracy theory of them all!

shocked child-1099770_960_720Conspiracy theorist: Trump is not serious about the US Presidential race.
Citizen: He looks pretty serious to me.

Conspiracy theorist: Don’t worry. He will withdraw any time soon!
Citizen: He’s not withdrawing!

Conspiracy theorist: He can’t win the Republican ticket, even if he does, the party will stop him via the brokered convention.
Citizen: He’s the Republican candidate!

Illuminati symbol-3448099_960_720Conspiracy theorist: Relax: He can’t beat Hillary.
Citizen: He’s drawing larger crowds! He’s more popular! He’s more charismatic!

Conspiracy theorist: Relax! He’ll probably win the popular vote but the Electoral College win is impossible!
Citizen: He’s won!

Conspiracy theorist: Well there’s still an outside chance that the Electoral College will reject him or you never know, he may not want to be President. He never wanted to be in the first place.
Citizen: He’s President!

trump dollar bill-2614892_960_720Conspiracy theorist: Don’t worry, he’ll either be impeached or quit in frustration.
Citizen: It’s the second half of 2019 and nothing seems to be happening!

Conspiracy theorist: Don’t worry, he’s a Hitler supported by Nazis and he has to quit or HE WILL BE IMPEACHED!
Citizen: I think he’s winning a second term!

Conspiracy theorist…

Where Conspiracy Theorist = Entire mainstream media.

If millions of people think the Earth is Flat, what difference does it make to you and me?

But this is one conspiracy theory that has divided the entire world and led to millions of Americans having severe psychological problems.

The dubious dilemma of the drowning American Democrats

Resist trump-2019482_960_720Recently, New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo threatened to sue if Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

That absurd statement sums up the plight of the American Democratic party, as this imaginary conversation shows…

Democrat: We will sue the Supreme Court!
Advisor: But sir, the Supreme Court is the highest court of the land. Who will we go to sue them?

Democrat: Then we’ll impeach them!
Advisor: But sir, the Senate is with the Republicans.

Democrat: Then we’ll use the House of Representatives to apply pressure.
Advisor: But sir, the House of Representatives is also with the Republicans!

Democrat: Then we’ll use the States to topple the Centre!
Advisor: But sir, nearly two-thirds of the States are also with the Republicans!

united-states-capitol-1675539__340Democrat: Then we’ll go to the people!
Advisor: But sir, if the White House, Senate, House of Representatives and nearly two-thirds of the States are with the Republicans, then doesn’t it mean that most of the people have been voting Republican?

Democrat: Then we’ll start a Civil War! We will take charge! Resist! Fight the Nazis! Defeat them!
Advisor: But sir, the other side have almost all the guns and also won the last Civil War decisively.

Democrat: We will confiscate all the guns!
Advisor: But sir, if the Supreme Court, White House, Senate, House of Representatives and nearly two-thirds of the States are with the Republicans, then how will you go about in confiscating the guns?

gun-1678989_960_720Democrat: Well, let’s start with the States that we do control, we’ll ban all guns there.
Advisor: Then in case of a Civil War, you are making all Democratic States the most vulnerable.

Democrat: Well then we’ll push for a war with Russia. We will push Trump into such a corner by calling him a traitor and push for a confrontation with Putin.
Advisor: But if we actually have war, then it could get him re-elected the way the 2003 Iraq War helped Bush even though it was the most disastrous decision in recent times.

Democrat: You’re a Nazi! You’re sacked! Victory is ours!

Get it 100% wrong, keep predicting, keep preaching and keep getting paid big bucks forever

narendra-modi-2112081_640In 2002, They (most media houses plus most pollsters plus most political experts plus most intellectuals plus most TV news stars plus most everybody else who had a voice and allegedly mattered) said that Modi would lose elections in the face of polarization and end his political career.
Not only did Modi win, but he is the biggest political figure well into 2018.

In 2004, They said that Vajpayee and the NDA would make a return and Advani would make Prime Minister and Sonia’s political career was over.
The NDA lost, Vajpayee’s career ended, Advani’s career virtually ended, Sonia virtually became a dictator for 10 years and now They are desperately trying to prop up a failed Sonia for 2019.

In 2009, They said that since Modi couldn’t win most of his State Lok Sabha seats, his national ambitions had officially ended.
Not only did Modi make a comeback, but he is the biggest national political figure well into 2018.

parliament-2028311_640In 2009, They said that UPA would probably just about scrape through and would be heavily reliant on all the allies for many many years to come. It was a new era of collation politics.
Congress jumped from 145 Lok Sabha seats to 206 and gave a royal kick to all their allies and virtually ruled alone for 5 years and the BJP government that followed also had no need for allies.

In the 2012 UP Assembly polls, They predicted a hopelessly hung Assembly.
Unsurprisingly the SP stormed to a clear majority.

For Modi and 2014, They made umpteen predictions…
Forget BJP, even NDA won’t get 272!
The BJP will never make Modi their PM candidate.
The allies will never accept Modi.
The common man will never accept Modi.
He can never let go the ghost of Godhra.
After 2014…
The Modi wave is over.
He will never be able to function in New Delhi.
The way all these predictions, assertions and prophecies got smashed to smithereens is not funny, it’s farcical.

kashmir-boat-642167_640In 2014, They couldn’t even sniff a BJP landslide in Haryana or an NDA government in J&K.

In 2015, They were nowhere near predicting 67/70 seats for AAP in Delhi.

They made absolute fools of themselves in Bihar in 2015 and predicted both a BJP landslide and a Mahagatbandhan landslide. One poll gave such a wide margin that it predicted a win for BJP, a loss for BJP and a hung house!

Now they are telling us that the Modi wave is over and he will be beaten in 2019 and I guess we have no choice but to believe them!

Bonus: International edition…

donald-trump-1708433_640Brexit can’t happen.
Right parties can’t come to power in Europe.
Trump isn’t serious.
Trump will withdraw from the Presidential race.
Trump can’t win the Republican nomination.
Trump can’t beat Hillary.
After becoming President, Trump will either be impeached or resign.
Trump will start a nuclear war with North Korea.

Fact. Israel is pro-India. Palestine is pro-Pakistan (& anti-India).

India historically always diplomatically attacked Israel…

Palestine flag1. India was the only non-Muslim country from the Asia-Pacific region to vote against the creation of Israel in 1947 even though it had just won its Independence from the British.

2. Indira Gandhi openly wooed Palestine Liberation Organization leader even though many considered it a terrorist organization and shared excellent personal ties with PLO leader Yasser Arafat.

3. India refused to have anything to do with Israel till 1991. Even after 1991, while India benefited greatly from Israel in bilateral ties, it tried to keep everything behind the scenes, a sort of backdoor diplomacy. A Prime Minister of India officially visited India only in 2017.

Despite that Palestine always abuses India…

icon-2027661_6401. Palestinian Abdullah Yusuf Azzam was a co-founder of the dreaded Lashkar-e-Taiba which has been involved with the 2001 Indian Parliament attack, the 2008 Mumbai attacks, the 2003 Nadimarg Massacre, the 2005 Delhi bombings, the 2006 Varanasi bombings, the 2006 Doda massacre and many many more.

2. In 2015, the then President Pranab Mukherjee had to cancel his visit to Al Quds University as Palestinian students protested him, got violent and there were also reported incidents of stone pelting.

3. Recently the Palestinian ambassador to Pakistan shared a stage with anti-Indian terrorist Hafiz Saeed, who was also one of the co-founders of the above mentioned LeT.

4. One of his predecessors had equated Palestine with Kashmir.

5. Pan Am air hostess Neerja Bhanot, who posthumously got the Ashok Chakra, was killed at the hands of hijackers and terrorists who were fighting for the Palestinian cause.

6. The West Bank is ruled by Hamas, a terrorist organization. Even the Palestinian National Authority President Mahmoud Abbas did his PhD in Holocaust denial.

Despite everything Israel always helped India…

israel-2131247_6401. Israel always tried to have friendly relations with India.

2. Israel helped India with arms on the eve of the 1971 war.

3. Israel did the same during the 1999 Kargil war.

4. India has given great help to India in the fields of military, security and agriculture.

5. When Modi visited Israel in 2017, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu personally greeted him when he arrived; he rarely does that, and spent the whole trip with him cancelling all other appointments.

The spectacular Rajyog of Shahenshah Donald J Trump

trump-2115838_1920There is a concept called Rajyog, a period in which a king will reign and flourish, while all his enemies will perish. Those who ally with him will prosper and those oppose him will bite the dust. I had written about this in The spectacular international Rajyog of Narendra Modi.

Now one could say that the same has been happening to US President Donald J Trump. Trump has always been a bull in a china shop. First, Trump steamrolled real estate, then reality TV, then the Republican nomination process, then the US Presidential election, then America and finally the world.

trump-2815558_1920He just seems unstoppable. He’s put the first nail in the coffin of Obamacare. The “Climate Change” bogey has been kicked in its pants. Political correctness has been thrown out of the window. Jerusalem will be the official capital of Israel.

The economy is looking up along with the job prospects. He is giving a fillip to Make in America, the energy industry and he’s even trying to push manufacturing and the IT industry. He’s also the first President who’s really trying to drain the swamp.

In 2017 he has come out with one executive order after another and also pushed a fair bit of legislation and he is totally on the path to keep most of his election promises, a rarity for any politician.

As mentioned above, during a Rajyog, all your enemies perish and boy does Trump have many! A look at how all of them are faring…

america-2025465_640The Democratic Party: When Barack Obama came to the US Presidency, it seemed that a Democratic dictatorship was upon America, but when he left, it seemed like we are headed for a Republican dictatorship. Obama was the worst President ever.

The Republican Party has never been this powerful since its inception in the middle of the nineteenth century. It now controls the White House, Senate, House of Representatives, Supreme Court and has most of the Governorships and State legislatures. That upward trend was cemented by Trump.

The extremely popular Bernie Sanders is still sidelined, lame duck Obama continues to overshadow everyone, Hillary Clinton refuses to go away as the rest of the Democratic Party is in total disarray.

black-and-white-2600678_1920Hollywood: Hollywood is hard Left, full Liberal and the ultimate Trump Hateland. Well it is now sinking in sexual molestation charges starting with the Harvey Weinstein revelations. So many stars face sexual misconduct allegations: Ben Affleck, Woody Allen, Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal, Oliver Stone, Sylvester Stallone, Dustin Hoffman, Geoffrey Rush, Richard Dreyfuss, George Takei, Alec Baldwin, Roman Polanski…

Phew! What a roll call (it tops 100, according to some lists) and what a fall for a bunch of people who have been shouting from the rooftops that Trump is a Hitler, a Nazi and an anti-woman monster!

Trump haters like Shia Lebouf have seen a total mental breakdown while the likes of Jennifer Lawrence are seeing their career go up in flames. Supreme moral guardian Meryl Streep looks like a royal fool blasting Trump 24X7 but doing business and hobnobbing with Hollywood molesters 24X7 at the same time.

Hollywood is also killing off golden gooses like the Star Wars franchise. Ticket sales are also at an all-time low and US 2017 sales have matched that of those sold in 1995 even though the population has increased and there has been an explosion of multiplexes. Outright box office disaster has been saved by much higher ticket prices, especially thanks to 3D, but for how long can they sustain it? One wonders how long can they go on without an extra creativity and the same ole sequels and reboots.

news-2094390_1920Mainstream media: The biggest attackers of Trump, they were all the virtual campaign arm of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US Presidential race. Nobody told them that Hillary lost in 2016 as they continue to campaign for her even as 2018 is upon us.

The ratings of CNN have crashed. The AT&T deal with Time Warner (of which CNN is a part) has been blocked. The New York Times had to rent many floors of its office space to raise cash. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos owns Washington Post and is a CIA contractor.

Buzzfeed is under federal scrutiny for its role in the golden shower dossier. Trump hater Ariana Huffington couldn’t even hold on to her Huffington Post. A new wave of Alt Media has already beaten traditional media in terms of page views and YouTube views and one wonders how much longer the advertisers can keep them propped up.

I had written his in detail in The men who killed the mainstream media. After the Weinstein scandal, skeletons are also tumbling out of the sexual harassment cupboard of the mainstream media. The MSM is also committing suicide over the fake and bullshit Russia story.

at-t-stadium-740537_1280NFL: What has the National Football League got to do with Trump? Well it all started with Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the national anthem before a game to protest against racism. That metamorphosed into a full-on battle between the NFL (mostly through its players, some officials and commentators) and Trump.

Predictably Kaepernick soon found himself out of a job, TV viewership went into decline, spectator attendance started falling in stadiums, sponsors started developing cold feet and revenues declined. There was even a viral video of a fan burning all his NFL merchandise.

journalist-985075_640Megyn Kelly/Fox: Megyn of Fox asked this question to Trump at the beginning of the Republican nomination process…

“You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals…”

This was the beginning of an interrogation that should have ended Trump’s Presidency dreams right there. Trump would either have to deny it or apologize and both would have sunk him. However Trump raised his finger with a swagger and replied…

“Only Rosie O’Donnell!”

The crowd went wild. That was the beginning of his rise and that swagger took him straight to the White House. Megyn on the other hand went on a downward spiral being humiliated by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and then Vladimir Putin. Her show ratings plummeted.

Fox News was lagging and then jumped on the Trump train and ended up on top of the ratings. Media mogul Rupert Murdoch was a Trump hater but changed tack. But the damage was done. Murdoch just announced the sale of Fox Entertainment to Disney. While he’s gained a lot of money, he’s just lost a lot of power.

terrorism-2654452_1920Islamic State: What became the Islamic State was gathering around for more than a decade and gained force in 2013. Islamic State attacked and had called for the assassination of Trump. Guess what? After Trump became President, they started waning and today control hardly any territory and have become just another declining mobile terrorist group like Al-Qaeda.

arch-745678_1280Iran: Israel is America’s best military and strategic and friend in West Asia while Saudi Arabia is the best Capitalistic-oil partner there. Obama tried to kick them both and embrace Iran, giving them tonnes of cash and letting them go nuclear.

But now Trump has put the squeeze back on Iran and embraced the above two. What’s more, Israel and Saudi Arabia have formed a sort of unofficial partnership. Jerusalem has been recognized as the official capital of Israel.

The Israel-Saudi duo is calling shots in the region and Iran has been left out in the cold. Iran is increasingly becoming powerless and could face military action against it in the long run.

sunset-2813759_1920Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal: This Saudi prince was one of the most powerful and richest men in the world, the biggest shareholder in Twitter. He also had stakes in Apple, AOL and Fox Broadcasting.

Then he Tweeted this to Trump…

.@realDonaldTrump
You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America.
Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win.

Replied Trump…

Dopey Prince @Alwaleed_Talal wants to control our U.S. politicians with daddy’s money. Can’t do it when I get elected. #Trump2016

In 2017, Al-Waleed was arrested, lost a good part of his income and according to one report was hung upside down and beaten. Very few Obama-Hillary sympathizers and Trump haters are left in power in the Saudi government.

cartoon-2026565_640Hillary Clinton: She had Obama, the Democratic Party, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, the mainstream media, liberals, intelligentsia, academics… all eating out of her hands but now thanks to Trump she stands isolated and is a laughing stock. A lot of scandals related to Obama-Hillary are coming out of the closet and it remains to be seen whether Trump takes any action against them.

James Comey: Comey became the all-powerful FBI director in 2013 and was looking at completing his 10-year term and hired a Special Counsel to fix Trump. Well Trump shocked Comey by promptly firing him.

miley-cyrus-81867_1280Celebrities: Eminem, Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Michael Moore, Lena Dunham, Cher, JK Rowling…  The huge number of Trump hating celebrities who faced total meltdown and became laughing stocks in 2017 was really alarming.

Theresa May: When the UK Prime Minister blasted Trump over some of his ReTweets over Islamic threats, Trump thundered back

.@Theresa_May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!

(Trump is a master user of Twitter)

Today May is hated by the people of England, her own party and her own people. Add the dangerous Trump to her list. Now trade wise UK may be squeezed by both the EU and America on both sides and really suffer. People keep attacking Trump and never learn.

un-1190183_640United Nations: All world leaders hate Trump and the UN symbolizes that perfectly. Well Trump is hitting back and has started rolling back aid to the UN over the Jerusalem issue and this is just the beginning of the decline of the UN.

Angela Merkel: Another Trump hater who was at her peak of power before Trump entered the Presidential race in 2015 and is becoming more and more irrelevant as Trump’s Presidency progresses. She is struggling to stay the Chancellor of Germany in a badly fractured coalition government.

elephant-964294_1920The Republican leadership: Senior Republican leaders hated Trump, but they are being blown away. If you align yourself with Trump, you win, if you attack him you lose. This is a bitter lesson that the Republican Party is learning and is slowly moulding itself in the image of Trump.

Trump is also the biggest attacker of concepts like…

hammer-2105611_640Communism: Many political parties. Mainstream media. Academia. Colleges. intelligentsia. Film makers and artists. They all leaned severely Left and were by and large left alone by Rightist leaders like George W Bush and backed to the hilt by Obama-Hillary. However Communism is being taken head on by Trump who is and out and out Capitalist.

Political Correctness: A pet obsession of the Left, it has already been thrown into the dustbin.

Social Justice Warriors: They’ve never had it so bad and are frothing in rage 24X7 after the advent of Trump.

Globalization: Was a one-way street before Trump happened. Now the global leaders who were pushing globalization unilaterally are facing a backlash and localization is coming back, albeit slowly.

Unfettered immigration: Seemed to be the future but now many countries are having second thoughts one by one.

Climate Change: Trump withdrew from the Paris accord and is backing the oil lobby to the hilt. This lobby was always suspect.

Coming soon…

north-korea-2972195_1920Kim Jong-un: Can the North Korean dictator get away after threatening America and Trump so much?

Silicon Valley: These Trump haters have so far escaped the wrath of Trump, but is an antitrust move coming against them?

Robert Mueller: Will the Special Counsel fix Trump or himself get fixed?

2017 was an amazing year for Trump and catastrophic for Trump haters.

Let’s see what happens in 2018!
