The Force Awakens was why you got the shit fest of The Last Jedi

millenium-falcon-1627322_960_720Everyone blasted Star Wars 8: The Last Jedi and I was no different—Read: Star Wars is dead! However very few people seem to realize that the problem was not The Last Jedi, but its predecessor Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens. That was the movie where everything went wrong and from then on the entire Star Wars franchise was doomed.

We got a really bad movie in the form of The Force Awakens and yet curiously everyone decided to cheer it as if it was one of the greatest things ever. It made more than US$2 billion at the global box office and into the Top 100 Rotten Tomatoes all-time great movies.

Never had such a downright mediocre movie got such a massively positive feedback from the fans, critics and box office.

Let me explain…

1. It wasn’t really Episode 7, but Episode 8.

8The original trilogy flowed seamlessly in terms of storyline as did the prequel trilogy. In fact you can watch Episodes 1 to 6 back to back and feel you are watching a continuous mini-series. However there is a huge jump from Episode 6 to 7.

At the end of Episode 6: Return of the Jedi, both the Emperor and Darth Vader were completely defeated and Princess Leia was in charge. Luke was the greatest Jedi in the galaxy and Han Solo was a genuine hero.

So at the beginning of Episode 7, this troika should be in charge of a government that is a replacement of the Empire or the defeated Empire should have struck back. So either Leia is leading the galaxy or an equal battle is brewing with a new potential Empire.

However we know absolutely nothing about all this as things have simply been fast forwarded. Snope is supreme. (How?) Leia-Han romanced, Kylo Ren was born, grew up and went to the Dark Side and nothing is explained properly. We know absolutely nothing of this and are expected to follow it seamlessly nevertheless.

George Lucas had always hinted that Episode 7 would go straight to the point where Luke-Leia-Solo were old but this is not at all what any of us expected. This seemed like a Star Wars from a parallel universe and not the original one.

2. The entire new cast was terrible.

rey-1449242_960_720Adam Driver—Kylo Ren. Daisy Ridley—Rey. John Boyega—Finn. Oscar Isaac—Poe Dameron. Absolutely no-one leaves a lasting impression. This is quite a lacklustre cast indeed. They are all weak and it is surprising how they were cast especially considering that Netflix and the TV universe together have such a vast and talented pool of excellent actors who give great performances.

When I came out of the cinema hall, I had forgotten the screen names of all of them. I struggled to discuss the movie with people after that with phrases like “That woman Jedi”, “That Darth Vader knockoff”, “That Stormtrooper” and “That other guy”. Such a thing was unthinkable when the original Star Wars was released in 1977.

Decades back when fans came out: Darth Vader, Luke, Leia, Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2D2 and C3PO were firmly etched in everyone’s minds. They immediately became cultish and their action figures sold like hot cakes.

Even though the prequel trilogy was boring and wooden at times, it had excellent performances: Liam Neeson—Qui-Gon Jinn. Ewan McGregor—Obi-Wan Kenobi. Christopher Lee—Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus. Samuel L. Jackson—Mace Windu. Ray Park—Darth Maul.

3. Leia-Solo were both terrible.

In terms of acting both Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher gave terrible performances. There was zero on screen chemistry between them even in the—what should have been an iconic scene when they meet. Both of them looked contrived and somewhat like props and I was left wondering what the hell they were doing there. Both of them could have well been left out of the movie and nobody would have noticed.

4. It broke away from the Star Wars canon.

While the prequel trilogy diluted the force with its use of Midi-chlorians, that was about it. Stars Wars 1 through 6 can be considered canon. Episode 7 first broke away, not Episode 8.

In the original trilogy, Luke was a perfect Bildungsroman character who grows slowly and steadily throughout the three movies. He is a total non-entity at the beginning, but you accept him as a great Jedi master at the end.

Darth VaderEven in the prequel trilogy, Darth Vader requires three movies to become Darth Vader. Not so with Rey. She receives no formal training of any kind and knows nothing about the Force and yet masters it. Her defeating of Kylo Ren (a trained Jedi dark apprentice with the Emperor as his master) looked downright ridiculous and gimmicky.

The whole concept of the Force was reduced to a joke.

Storm TrooperAlso a storm trooper rebelling made no sense. There have been 9 Star Wars movies (including Rogue One) and only one storm trooper rebelled in one of them? What sense does that make? Either all of them were brainwashed or a storm trooper rebellion should have broken out in Episode 8.

The concept of the Force is trivialized in Episode 7 and pulverized in Episode 8.

On their first attempt, Rey commandeering the Millennium Falcon was a travesty in Episode 7 but Rose commandeering the speeder was a total farce in Episode 8.

Rey beating Kylo Ren in Episode 7 was Mary Sue-ish, but Rey beating the Emperor was Super Mary Sue-ish in Episode 8.

Luke looked stoned at the end of Episode 7 and super stoned in the first half of Episode 8.

It all began in Episode 7. Episode 8 merely took the garbage forward.

5. It was a remake of Star Wars 4.

BB8 R2D2While this was mentioned by everyone, it wasn’t rubbished enough because it kindled the nostalgia in all the fans. But the truth cannot be denied. Kylo Ren was discount Darth Vader. Emperor Snope was discount Emperor Palpatine. Rey was a discount Luke-Solo hybrid. General Leia was discount Princess Leia. Old Solo was discount Young Solo. Finn was discount storm trooper. Poe was another discount Solo.

The story line was more or less the same. A message had to be carried across the galaxy. BB-8 replaced R2D2. Starkiller Base replaced the Death Star. It was extremely lazy story writing. They then randomly got Kylo Ren to kill his father Han Solo to break the mould somewhat, but the entire story line was incoherent.

What if they had shown a Queen Leia, a supreme Jedi Master Luke and an ageing General Solo being attacked by a mysterious Sith Lord from another galaxy? They would have actually had to use their brains then!

star-wars-Feminism6. Feminism will defeat Patriarchy!

In Episode 7 Luke came only at the end of the movie and threw away his Lightsaber. Solo was clueless, jobless and finally killed unceremoniously. Kylo Ren looked like a scared pansy throughout the movie. Finn and Poe were subservient to Rey. Episode 7 was merely the platform for the Episode 8 Social Justice Warrior shit fest.

8 shifting goal posts of the Mueller probe

donald-trump-wheel3259388_960_720Everyone knew the Donald Trump-Vladimir Putin Russian collusion theory was 100% fake and everyone knew that the Mueller probe that looked into it would probably yield nothing. But still there was such tremendous hype round it. Why?

The simple reason was that this was all a witch hunt and Trump haters were clutching at straws because they were drowning in the tears produced by the loss of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US Presidential polls. Marxists (Socialists + Liberals + intellectuals etc) have a habit of shifting goalposts.

When they don’t score, as they usually haven’t been doing in the 2010s, they simply shift the goal posts and claim victory. However in this particular case, they were so off target that all the multiple goal posts missed.

Here is a list of traps that the Trump haters set for the current US President…

1. He would be a lame duck President.

dementia trump-1750965_960_720That was their first goal. They hope that he would be unable to function from Day 1. They hoped he wouldn’t be able to function in Washington DC and be consumed by the swamp. Trump may be a billionaire with decades with experience, but this was his first political job.

At that time even the Republican leadership abhorred him and the Democrats thought that they would get together and neutralize him via the Mueller probe which wouldn’t let him function.

2. He would resign in frustration.

checkmate-1511866_960_720If the above played out, then Trump would be totally frustrated at having no work done. On top of that Mueller would always be hanging above him like a Damocles Sword and he might wonder: What if the special counsel fixed him over some bogus charge? Might not it be better to just quit and leave? Then his Vice President Mike Pence would take over who would also be attacked 24X7 and that would clear the decks for a Democratic President in 2020.

3. He would sack Mueller and be charged for obstruction.

department Justice -40657_960_720Trump is one of the smartest guys around and he would have fully understood the above. Wouldn’t it be a better idea to just sack Mueller? Then the Democrats would charge him for obstruction of justice. The charges and attacks would just seamlessly shift from collusion to obstruction.

That is why they went after his Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions could well have sacked Mueller and taken the heat on himself. But he was virulently attacked and forced to recuse himself so that the Mueller sacking would solely be on Trump and the obstruction narrative could move forward.

4. He would enter a perjury trap.

meeting-room-10270_960_720Mueller kept trying to get Trump into a room and grill him. Trump wisely got out of such a situation. Mueller would have asked him as many questions as he could and had anything that technically could be a lie would have been called that.

If collusion and obstruction fails, then go for perjury! That’s what the theory of shifting goal posts is all about!

5. He would be a disgrace by 2018.

2018The Democrats thought that even if Trump fought it out, then Trump would be a total disgrace and spent force by 2018 by which time they hoped to take the House and they actually did. The Democrats would then impeach Trump and the action would have shifted to the Senate.

While it is highly doubtful the Senate will remove Trump (The Democrats need 67 votes and they don’t even have 50) the narrative would have shifted away from the Republicans and the Dems would be primed to take over the White House in 2020.

6. Something Russia over his colleagues and family.

saint-basils-cathedral-708349_960_720Actually they knew that if would be quite difficult to tie Trump to Russia, but anyone else would do. His children. His campaign team. Any senior person in his many businesses. All they had to do was nail any close Trump associate for having close ties with Russia and Trump would be guilty by association in the public court.

Perception is all that matters!

7. Something. Anything. About Anything.

pray-1639946_960_720Actually it wasn’t just about Russia. The 22-month probe covered everything. The Dems were hoping to dig tonnes of dirt and get anything. Anything related to finance. Anything related to tax returns. Anything related to any of his dealings. Anything related to even racism in his businesses.

However anything became nothing in the end.

8. What if he did actually collude with Russia!

putin-2972184_960_720For Marxists, the 2016 is probably the worst year since 1991 when the Communist Soviet Empire collapsed. That year had both Trump and Brexit. Prime Minister Narendra Modi won in 2014. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu kept winning. And the Right is rising in almost every European country. They keep losing.

The Marxists have become severely delusional and have entered their make believe world where anyone who isn’t Far Left is a Hitler Nazi. They actually believe that all their opponents are evil. They keep doubling down and getting more and more delusional and they actually believe Putin and Trump colluded.

But then if that’s the case then the then US President Barack Obama should be arrested because he allowed it to happen because it happened under his watch. Such subtle nuances are totally lost on the Marxists.

trump-3123765_960_720It is amazing that Trump continues to soar, save all the opposition goals and doesn’t have an approval rating below 20%. He has used his Twitter handle to totally neutralize the mainstream media.

The Mueller Probe is dead, but it still lives in the hearts of the Marxists.

10 reasons why Sonia ruled like a dictator (and nobody really cared!)

Queen chess-1483735_960_720Congress dynasts do nothing and are given power after which they rule like dictators. BJP leaders work their way up the ladder and when they reach the top, they are attacked 24X7 by the mainstream media, liberals and so called intellectuals. If that’s not enough, then the Congress dynasts are called secular democrats while the BJP leaders are called fascist dictators.

The latest in this long line of dual identity switching is Congress leader Sonia and Gandhi and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A look at the reasons why Sonia, not Modi, has been ruling her fiefdom like a dictator…

1. Congress President for a whopping 20 years.

GandhiIf you look at the list of Congress Presidents then it’s an illustrious list full of stalwarts who ruled by rotation. Very rarely did anyone rule at a stretch and a double figure reign was unthinkable. Well Sonia was President for an amazing 20 years, from 1998-2017.

So does that mean she was the best President ever who got elected by a thumping majority? Not really. Her tenure started with the then President Sitaram Kesri being locked in the toilet so he couldn’t oppose Sonia. Then in 1999, Sonia crashed the Congress to 114/543 Lok Sabha seats, the worst ever.

After that from 2004-14, she fired from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s shoulder and gave the worst and most corrupt government in Independent history and broke her own Lok Sabha record Congress for a paltry 44 seats. Yet nobody challenged her and she passed her title to her zero achievement son Pappu.

True democratic leaders become stronger with every success (like Modi) while dictators become even more powerful with every successive failure.

2. Remember the social media crackdown and the dreaded Section 66A?

censorship-610101_960_720Remember the dreaded Section 66A of the Indian IT Act where you could be arrested even if you annoyed a politician. That led to great mayhem in the run up to the 2014 general elections. Many were arrested while a good number of Congress critics got threatening notices.

Interestingly even in the run up to the 2019 elections it is Modi and BJP supporters who are finding their social media accounts suspended and deleted proving that Modi is not the dictator. However Sonia’s party continues to crack down even after being out of power.

It runs in the family actually. Jawaharlal Nehru brought in the First Amendment which severely curbed freedom of speech. Indira Gandhi imposed Emergency. Sanjay’s goons would beat up anyone who disagreed with him. Rajiv tried to impose the anti-defamation bill which would jail journalists. What’s new?

see no evil-1020175_960_7203. Secretive and aloof beyond measure.

Forget doing anything against her, she can’t even be discussed. Her IT returns, travel plans and mystery illnesses do not come under Right To Information. You can’t know anything about her. You can’t ask anything about her. She’s royalty and you have to bow down your head when it comes to her. She is powerful that we don’t even have the right to any kind of information that she deems unfit.

nehru-2361331_6404. Mainstream media management surpassed even Nehru.

Nehru faced some dissent in his time. Rajiv was totally disgraced by the end of his term in 1989. However from 2004-19 the entire mainstream media has shown that it is petrified of her. You can’t do articles critical of her and have to withdraw completely if “Sonia is unhappy”.

Every editor wants to be in her good books. Every media house quakes in its boots at the thought of her. Does this sound like a democracy or a dictatorship?

5. Zero dissent and debate with fleet of sycophantic leaders.

A whole galaxy of leaders opposed Nehru, Indira and Rajiv under their reign. However after the deaths of Madhavrao Scindia, Rajesh Pilot and Jitendra Prasad, Sonia ruled the party like a dictator from 2001-17. Nobody could challenge her. Nobody could stand up to her. Nobody could question her decisions. Quite strange in an allegedly flourishing democracy like India!

throne-2790789_960_7206. Zero Accountability during UPA.

2004-14: Sonia was the most powerful person during UPA. UPA was also the most corrupt and worst governed regime. Yet Sonia is 0% responsible for all the problems of the UPA? How does that work? Why did the Prime Minister of the land behave like a servant and treat Sonia like his master. Why is MMS still petrified of her? Fascist dictator anyone?

7. Goebbelsian team surpassed previous spokespersons.

The spokespersons of the Congress party give two hoots to truth, logic and decency. They even give two hoots to the Congress party. Their only aim is to please the Queen and her son. That’s it. Every failure has to be twisted in such a way that the party and its leaders can be rubbished, but not the supreme dictator.

8. National Advisory Council and its constitutionality.

parliament-2028311_640If Sonia during UPA was a super PM, then the NAC was a super cabinet. This was an extra-Constitutional body created just for Sonia. Just to give her legitimacy. Just to give her power. Just to give her an excuse to impose her will on the government. A powerful body created by one woman, just for one woman. It was thankfully scrapped by Modi in 2014.

9. What about all those crimes?

Modi was accused of dozens of crimes and there was never even a chargesheet. However Sonia is actually an accused in the National Herald scam. Her name also cropped up in an Italian court in the Agusta Westland scam. BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has even linked her name to the 2G scam, exodus of antiquities, the KGB etc. But nobody may even look into it, speak of it and even deny it, for that will acknowledge its very existence. She who must not be named. Her scams must not be named.

10. Cult of Sonia alive even today.

Even in 2019, a powerless Sonia is still not investigated, attacked or even criticized. Media houses stay clear of her, politicians do not want to take her on and investigative agencies would rather look the other way when her name crops up. She may yet be India’s greatest dictator wince the days of the British Raj.

10 reasons why Sonia Gandhi is the worst Congress President ever

Prime Ministers of India, would be PMs and their unnatural deaths…

Gandhi statueIndia was unlucky in its senior leadership right from the beginning. Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948 and Deputy Prime Minister Sardar Vallabhai Patel died in 1950. Even economic experts like our first Governor General C Rajagopalachari, who predicted the ills of the License Raj, and BR Ambedkar, the Father of the Reserve Bank and Financial Commission, were both sidelined as India’s 1991 economic collapse was inevitable.

However here’s looking at Prime Ministers and would be Prime Ministers who left early or mysteriously…

Netaji1. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: Congress President from 1938-39. Leader of the Indian National Army.

Chased away by Gandhi he left India to take on the British with the help of the Japanese. It was the 1945 INA trials and subsequent Bombay Mutiny that led to India getting Independence. He would probably have been India’s first Prime Minister had he been around in 1947.

Endgame: Disappeared mysteriously and probably died in oblivion sometime after 1945.

2. Syama Prasad Mukherjee: Founder of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh (BJS) which later became BJP.

Kashmir dal lakeOne of the biggest opponents of then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, he was proving to be a strong opposition to the Congress and may even have replaced him ultimately.

Endgame: He virulently opposed a special status to J&K (much like Ambedkar) and died in a Kashmir jail after being administered penicillin, even though it was well known that he was allergic to it. Prime Minister (1998-2004) AB Vajpayee called it a “Nehru conspiracy” in 1950.

3. Feroze Gandhi: MP and son-in-law of Jawaharlal Nehru.

Seen as Prime Ministerial material by many, he was famous for raising the LIC scandal in Parliament, which severely embarrassed his father-in-law.

Endgame: Died early at the age of 47 in 1960 in virtual oblivion.

4. Lal Bahadur Shastri: Second Prime Minister.

Green Revolution 3467922_960_720Mr Clean. Mr Honest. Jai Jawan (gave decisive leadership during the 1965 war). Jai Kisan (moved India away from Nehru’s strong urban-centric policies). He also laid the foundations of the Green and White Revolutions of India. It is quite difficult to believe that he achieved so much because he was Prime Minister for less than two years.

Endgame: Died mysteriously in Tashkent in 1966.

5. Deendayal Upadhyaya: President of Bharatiya Jana Sangh.

Famous for his Integral Humanism doctrine, his dynamism inspired generations of RSS and BJS-BJP workers and leaders.

Endgame: Months after becoming BJS President, he was found isolated and murdered in a railway station in 1968.

6. Sanjay Gandhi: Virtual dictator of India during Emergency and Indira’s son and heir apparent.

dictator-2161890_960_720One of the most controversial Indian leaders ever, he was the face of India’s 1975-77 Emergency and just 29 when it began. The Indira-Sanjay duo tortured thousands, jailed lakhs and sterilized millions by force. Sanjay became the face of sterilizations and slum clearances. His rise from a nobody to becoming Numero Uno in India was swift and spectacular.

Endgame: Died in 1980 in a plane crash.

golden-temple-397886_960_7207. Indira Gandhi: Third Prime Minister.

Probably India’s most controversial Prime Minister, she cemented the dynasty, decimated the opposition even as a record number of senior leaders left her party under her rule.

Endgame: Assassinated by her bodyguards over the Punjab problem in 1984.

8. Rajiv Gandhi: Sixth Prime Minister.

He became infamous for the Sikh genocide and Bhopal gas disaster even before the general elections of 1984. He lost in 1989 being totally disgraced, especially due to the Bofors scam.

Endgame: Assassinated by the LTTE in 1991.

9. Rajesh Pilot: Central Minister.

A smart upcoming and dynamic leader, he would have been a candidate for Prime Minister in 2004.

Endgame: Died in a car accident in 2000.

10. Madhavrao Scindia: Central Minister.

Active in politics from the 1970s to 1990s, he wore many hats. Like Pilot, he too would have been a candidate for Prime Minister in 2004.

Endgame: Died in a plane crash in 2001.

11. Pramod Mahajan: Central Minister.

Was crowned the successor to the BJP’s Vajpayee-Advani regime and would have been the BJP’s candidate for premiership in the 2009 elections.

Endgame: Killed in 2007.

Focus Trump: How the media whitewashes the black and blackwashes the white

Fact I: Donald Trump is the most pro-Jew pro-Israel US President in history…

Israel flag-2714660_960_7201. Trump’s son-in-law is Jewish. His daughter has converted to Judaism. His grandchildren are being brought up as Jews.

2. In 1949, Israel proclaimed Jerusalem as their capital. In 1995 the US Congress voted overwhelmingly to recognize Jerusalem and shift the US Embassy there. However successive Presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama kept postponing that move. In 2018 Trump finally shifted the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

3. Iran threatened to wipe Israel off the map. Iran regards the US as the Great Satan and “Death to America” almost became their national slogan. Despite this Obama alienated Israel and signed a one-sided Iran nuclear deal detrimental to both Israel and the US. Trump scrapped the one-sided deal and fully recognized Israel’s strategic concerns.

Iran globe-1029210_960_7204. Trump has warmed ties between Saudi Arabia and Israel and that has led to the latter becoming much safer and securer in the region.

5. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a big fan of Trump (Obama and Netanyahu hated each other). Netanyahu used Trump in an election poster. An Israeli football club renamed itself Beitar Trump. Most polls also show Israelis having a highly favourable approval rating of Trump.

Global media consensus: Trump is a racist anti-Semite (anti-Jew).

——-

Fact II: Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan.

KKK america-1294996_960_7201. The Democrats opposed the abolition of slavery.

2. The Ku Klux Klan was formed in the 1860s and had a good number of Democrats as the founders.

3. From 1860s to the 1960s, all pro-black legislation had a greater percentage of Republican lawmakers supporting them than Democrats.

4. Democrat Thomas Dixon Jr. was a strong proponent of white supremacy and wrote The Clansman and The Leopard’s Spots. They were made into the white supremacist movie The Birth of a Nation in 1915.

5. Democrat President Woodrow Wilson screened The Birth of a Nation in the White House (the first film to be screened there) and that led to the revival of the KKK.

6. Democrat-KKK leaders regularly ran for elections on the party ticket and the last such high-profile individual was former President pro tempore of the United States Senate Robert Byrd who retired in 2010.  Byrd still remains the longest-serving US Senator ever.

7. When Byrd died in 2010, Hillary Clinton paid glowing tributes to him.

8. As late as 2019, Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is embroiled in a KKK controversy when it was revealed that there was a photo of a black face and a man dressed up as a KKK member in his yearbook.

Global media consensus: Trump and KKK are synonymous.

——-

Fact III: Trump is the most pro-gay Republican President in history.

lgbt-2741369_960_7201. Trump became the first US President in history to accept gay marriage during election campaigning while running for office for the first time.

2. Trump became the first Republican Presidential nominee to have waved the rainbow flag at the Republican convention.

3. Trump appointed gay Richard Grenell as US Ambassador to Germany and he is leading an effort to decriminalize homosexuality at a global level.

Global media consensus: Trump is the biggest impediment to gay rights worldwide and is trying to ban them.

——-

rapper-149644_960_720Fact IV: Before he joined the Republican Party, Trump was a popular and aspirational figure in the African American community, as you can see by this YouTube video: 67 Times Rappers Name Dropped “Donald Trump” In Their Songs. Respected leaders like Reverend Jesse Jackson also praised him regularly. Trump’s prison reforms are being hailed universally by the African American community. After Trump took over black unemployment reached its lowest level since 1972. Despite all this, the global media has successfully painted Trump as one of the most anti-black global leaders of all time.

——-

Fact V: Most of their Trump analyses and predictions have been totally wrong.

trump-3770205_960_7201. Trump doesn’t want to be President.

2. He will withdraw from the race.

3. He can’t get the Republican ticket.

4. The Republican leaders will be able to stop him.

5. He may win the popular vote but never the Electoral College.

trump-2062441_960_7206. There’s no way he can beat Hillary.

7. He will be impeached in 2017.

8. He will resign/be jailed in 2017.

9. He will be impeached in 2018.

10. He will resign/be jailed in 2018.

11. The economy will tank because of him.

12. He will start World War 3.

And so on and so forth. You could fill a book with the failed predictions from 2015-18.

The Russian collusion theory is probably the biggest Fake News story in American history.

——-

Fact VI: The media will back all anti-Trump hoaxes to the hilt.

donald-trump-2483441_960_720The Russian collusion hoax is one of the many forwarded by the media.

Most of the violent political attacks have been against Trump supporters. However the media will either ignore them or justify them. Attacks by Trump supporters have been so few that a slew of hoaxes have come up.

An interesting link with that regard…

Here’s A List Of Hoax ‘Hate Crimes’ In The Trump Era

No matter how bad the politician, Indian electorate will forgive him

Disgraced in the 1970s, celebrated in the 1990s…

revolution-30590_960_7201974: Gujarat’s Navnirman Andolan led to Jayaprakash Narayan’s Total Revolution which led to a nationwide agitation which led to Emergency which led to the first non-Congress government at the Centre. One of the casualties of this chain of events was the disgracing of Congress Chief Minister Chimanbhai Patel who had to quit. Women came in the streets swearing that they would not name their children after Chimanbhai as donkeys were paraded elsewhere with his name painted on them.

1990: Chimanbhai becomes CM again and that too with support of BJP, which was part of the above-mentioned first non-Congress government.

Even a brutal dictator is eventually loved…

dictator-2161890_960_7201975-77: Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declares dictatorship in India (Emergency), terrorizes the nation, totally clamps down on freedom of speech and expression, turns all opposition parties into dummies, tortures thousands, imprisons lakhs and conducts millions (yes, millions) of forced sterilizations, some which go wrong and some which are conducted on young men without children.

1980: Indira storms back with a whopping 374 seats, bungles Punjab and attacks the revered Golden Temple, sees the Nellie Massacre on her watch, which may have seen 10,000 killed in a single day, still becomes a much worshipped and loved figure right up to today.

The most incompetent start ever and yet…

1984 October end to December beginning: In just his first 5 weeks on the job, Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi saw the anti-Sikh riots in which crores of property was burnt, thousands were killed and lakhs terrorized and then the Bhopal Gas Tragedy seeing thousands killed and lakhs injured and offending Chairman and CEO of Union Carbide, Warren Anderson, was allowed to go scot free.

1984 December end: Rajiv wins a whopping 400+ seats in the general elections, a record in Indian democracy. In the above mentioned riots leaders accused of leading mobs are given plum posts instead of being investigated against.

2018: One of the above mentioned accused becomes the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh replacing someone who is popular and has solid development credentials.

Bringing you peace and yet…

communism-17143_6401948 onwards: Communist terrorist violence raging all across India under the names of Telangana Rebellion or Naxalism or Maoism or party violence and one of these states happen to be Chhattisgarh.

2018: The Chhattisgarh Chief Minister against all odds almost eradicates Naxalite violence and brings a solid development agenda to the state. In reply the electorate give his rival party replacement (nobody even knows who that will be at the time of voting) a landslide.

How it all began…

Gandhi pacifist-71445_960_7201947: The downright bungling by the duo of Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru led to the killing of a million during Partition and the displacement of millions. Everyone knew that the riots were coming but Gandhi-Nehru didn’t have the wisdom-guts-whatever to postpone the Partition, secure the border or hold the British Army accountable to mitigate the tragedy. The whole world had seen World War 2 and global opinion and help could have been had to prevent another tragedy. Gandhi was after all a global superstar!

2018: Nehru won every election in his life even though he did hardly much for India and well into 2018 both are worshiped and the above thing is not even debated upon, let alone condemned!

India is on an upswing. The West is on a downswing.

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.

This decade has totally crushed the smug Global Elites

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 dealt with a crushing blow this decade

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.

The 7 avatars of Pappu

Congress President and great 2019 Liberal Hope Rahul Gandhi is really bad software which keeps updated with endless versions. Nobody has probably received more image makeovers than him…

1. The Sphinx (Pre-2004)

Sphinx egypt-1179196_960_720The Nehru-Gandhi Dynasty is treated like royalty and shrouded in secrecy. Their Right to Privacy trumps the fundamental rights of 1.36 billion Indians. Before 2004 nobody knew anything about both Pappu and sister Priyanka and who would enter politics and whether both of them would.

Pappu was treated with kid gloves and travelled all over the world in his private cocoon, the security of which was sponsored by the Government of India. He was always seen as a future Prime Minister of India, though who was always in Priyanka’s shadow as she had captured the public imagination at that time.

2. The Gentleman (2004)

Suited man-3022704_960_720Pappu entered politics with a bang. A great debut. A win in Amethi. A Congress Prime Minister. After his mother turned down the Prime Minister’s post, he officially became the Heir Apparent and got far more respect in the Congress party than Prime Minister Manmohan ever could.

Pappu cultivated a calm gentlemanly political narrative and rarely got angry or engaged too much with any politician or media house. Then he got a triple whammy in the 2007 elections. He was promoted to Congress General Secretary, Chairperson of Indian Youth Congress and National Students Union of India.

3. The Statesman (2009)

Podium-1889056_960_720This is probably his peak. Pappu campaigned in many Lok Sabha constituencies and Congress saw an unexpected jump from 145 to 206 seats. The media and public went with the Singh is King Nuclear Deal narrative, but that was thrown into the dustbin within the Congress and full credit was given to Pappu.

In fact some even boasted that Manmohan would be kicked upstairs to the India President’s post in 2012, Pappu would be made Prime Minister and lead the Congress to 272+ seats in the 2014 elections. Many bought into this narrative.

4. The Angry Young Man (Run up to 2014)

Angry emoticon-1669804_960_720However that fell apart in 2010 with the Commonwealth Games scam which looked as damaging as Bofors at that time. However 2011 proved to be worse with the 2G scam and Anna Hazare’s August Kranti. It was all over by the 2012 Coalgate scam.

Pappu was protected. The party now became scared to announce him as Prime Ministerial candidate for 2014. Since the people were angry, Pappu was presented as the new Angry Young Man. He would roll up his sleeves, sport a stubble, rant and rave like a commoner and even tear up ordinances on a public stage.

But the Indian public in general and Twitter in particular saw him more of a comedian than a real life version of Amitabh Bachchan.

5. The Confused Young Man (2014 onward)

question road-sign-63983_960_720Everyone expected the BJP to win and Congress to lose, but the sheer magnitude of the loss shocked everyone. The lowest Lok Sabha seats the Congress ever got before 2014 was 114 and the highest the BJP got was 182.

So for the BJP to thrash Congress 282-44 was unprecedented and threw the Grand Old Party off guard. And also Pappu and his advisors? Was he the Great Unifier that would bring all the opposition together and challenge Modi? Or was he the Lone Ranger.

Was he the #KhaatPeCharcha “commoner” who would resonate with the masses? Was he the Angry Young Man Sequel returning to his rolled up sleeves and stubble ranting and raving at the establishment? Well he kept changing like a chameleon and the random changing colours made everyone’s head spin. Then he was also presented as a janeudhari Brahmin to appeal to the masses!

6. The Congress President (2017)

Tick mark-1013981_960_720Pappu paas ho gaya! Whether you like it or not, Pappu finally became the top ranking opposition leader. Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawati are powerless. Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha are no more. Nitish Kumar is with NDA and KCR may go that way too after 2019. Chandrababu Naidu has accepted Pappu as his master. Arvind Kejriwal is a bigger joke. Naveen Patnaik and Mamata Banerjee are confined to their respective states.

With Sonia Gandhi stepping down from the party President’s post, Pappu is finally the undisputed numero uno in Opposition India. Of course it’s not that his personal stature has grown, but the fact that everyone has shrunk around him!

7. The Great Hope (2019)

superhero-2503808_960_720Make no mistake. The media, intellectuals and Liberals still hate Prime Minister Narendra Modi with all their hearts and souls. In the run up to the 2019 general elections, all of Pappu’s gaffes, jokes, mistakes, foh pahz, misdemeanours… will be totally forgotten and he will be presented fresh for the umpteenth time as the Great Hope of 2019 (the Great Hope of 2014 that was created in 2009 will be simply repackaged).

The 2-world interpretation: Why Trump is a colossal failure & grand success at once

climate-change-2254711_960_720If you believe in Climate Change…
…then he is a climate monster who will destroy the world.
If you think that Climate Change is a fraud…
…then he has blown the lid off one of the greatest scams of all time.

Immigration posters-2590766_960_720If you believe illegal immigration will help a country…
…then he is a human rights disaster.
If you believe illegal immigration will destroy a country…
…then he is actually saving a country.

If you like global blocs like the EU and UN…
…then he is breaking up the world.
If you think global blocs like EU and UN are dictatorial…
…then he is actually increasing democracy throughout the world.

usa-n korea 2893863_960_720If you want denuclearization of North Korea that too now and nothing else…
…then he is being taken for a ride.
If you accept that North Korea has de-isolated itself and agreed to talks which itself is huge…
…then peace is finally getting a chance.

al-aqsa-mosque-196846_960_720If you think that Iran is at the centre of Middle East peace…
…then he is dangerously flirting with war.
If you think a Saudi Arabia-Israel inititative can bring permanent peace there…
…then he’s a Middle East peace genius.

If you think that Left-leaning ideology is human…
…then he is an insensitive tyrant.
If you think that Left-leaning ideology is dictatorial…
…then he is in fact removing authoritarianism from the world.

health checklist-3222079_960_720If you think that universal healthcare is a fundamental right…
…then he’s denying healthcare to millions.
If you think that universal healthcare will bankrupt a country…
…then he’s actually a pragmatic economist.

If you think that US should seek a path of confrontation with Russia…
…then he is Putin’s puppet.
If you think that US should seek peace with Russia and get tough on them only in certain situations…
…then he’s a master statesman.

questions-1922477_960_720If you prefer status quo and hate disruption…
…then he’s a chaos monster.
If you realize chaos rids the old system and ultimately yields a new one…
…then he is finally draining the swamp.

If you back Israel to the hilt…
…then you’re happy because he’s probably the most pro-Israel pro-Jewish US President ever.
If you back Palestine to the hilt…
…then you hate him because Palestine suddenly lost most of its bargaining power.

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.

Lo behold! The Golden Age began and you didn’t even notice!

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

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
