Rahul Gandhi falsely claims Gaddafi won elections

Saturday, February 13, 2021

Muammar Gaddafi (on left), Rahul Gandhi (on right)

On Friday, in the program of the University of Chicago, Indian National Congress (INC) leader Rahul Gandhi claimed that Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein also won the election.

Gandhi made this claim in order to discredit the election victories of their biggest opposition Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) against INC, mainly in general elections of 2014 and 2019.

But the claim that Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader and colonel who was ousted in 2011 Libyan Civil war, 'won the election' is completely false.

Gaddafi came into prominence in 1969 after he led a bloodless coup against the King of Libya Idris I.

Idris I was unpopular among the masses of Libya and Gaddafi was celebrated as a revolutionary for overthrowing the monarchy, thus starting a new chapter in the history of Libya.

The first prime minister of Libya was Mahmud Suleiman Maghribi, who reigned as PM from 8 September 1969 - 16 January 1970. After Maghribi, Muammar Gaddafi reigned in as PM from 16 January 1970 - 16 July 1972, after which he became a chairman of governing body Libyan Revolutionary Command Council, which ruled Libya until 1977 when the country supposedly adopted 'direct democracy' without any political parties and renamed itself as Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and remained as such until 2011.

But there was never a circumstance when Gaddafi had to fight elections or they ever occurred in Libya before his death in October 2011.

We can conclude at this stage that Rahul Gandhi with his claim that Gaddafi won elections is yet another senseless comment based on false facts.

Brazil shuts down Car Wash anti-corruption squad

Thursday, February 04, 2021

Brazil’s Car Wash anti-corruption unit has formally shut down, the end of an era for a team of prosecutors that helped send dozens of Latin American political and business leaders to jail, and several former presidents.

The task force, which emerged from a routine money-laundering investigation into a car wash in Brasilia, ceased to exist on Monday, although its dissolution was not declared until Wednesday by the federal prosecutors’ office (MPF).

Some of its prosecutors will be moved to the organized crime unit of the MPF, where they will keep working, the agency’s statement said.

The Car Wash squad started its work in 2014, focusing on contracting graft at state-run oil company Petrobras, although their scope quickly expanded. Former presidents and major companies across Latin America, thought for years to be untouchable, were implicated in sprawling corruption schemes uncovered by the investigators.

Among major figures sent to jail because of the investigation was former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Outside of Brazil, ex-presidents in Peru, El Salvador, and Panama were also jailed as a result of investigations started by the task force. Major international companies, such as Maersk and Glencore, have also come under the investigators’ microscope.

But many leftists were aware of the investigation, in part due to the jailing of Lula, while a series of leaked conversations in 2019 raised questions about whether investigators were slashing corners to secure prosecutions.

Corruption investigations into family members of right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro have made some conservatives suspicious of efforts to fight corruption as well.

That had left the future of Car Wash in doubt, even as its work remained popular among people of the country. In September, Brazilian Prosecutor-General Augusto Aras extended the task force’s mandate until January 31 but did not tell if he would renew it.

According to its own data, the Car Wash task force was responsible for 295 arrests, 278 convictions, and 4.3 billion reais ($803 million) in ill-gotten gains being returned to the Brazilian state during its approximately seven years of operation.

Greta Thunberg deletes her tweet made in support of causing unrest in India

Thursday, February 04, 2021

The climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who has Aspergers, a mental disorder, has been exposed after tweeting not only in support of farmer protests but also sharing a manual on how to cause chaos and civil disorder in the country.

Thunberg later deleted the tweet probably because it didn't go that well for her.

Recent farmer protests have been largely carried out by people from only a couple of states. These protests are largely believed to have been initiated by middlemen who are likely to lose most money since the introduction of a reformed farmer bill that will provide freedom to farmers for selling their agricultural products such as vegetables, fruits, anywhere they want without paying a hefty fee to a middleman.

After Greta Thunberg made the tweet, a large number of Twitter users went ahead to highlight and reply to it.

One of the response included:

Another tweet noted that: 

"And here's the giveaway.  'Environment Activist'  tweets the 'Anti India Tool Kit' that details January 26th plot. It was pre-planned, it was coordinated, it was with the help of global anti India forces. This is a mammoth global conspiracy against India. #IndiaAgainstPropaganda"

I would like to know why Greta Thunberg resorted to deletion if the Tweet was all well and good? For sure we can say now that there is a huge conspiracy behind these so-called farmer protests that have to do nothing with the farmer bill but the ruling government of the country.

Arkansas leaders propose a bill to repeal Confederate Flag Day

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Arkansas State Representative Andrew Collins (D), together with Senator Breanne Davis (R), filed a bill on Friday to repeal Confederate Flag Day in the state.

Every year, the Saturday before Easter Sunday is recognized as Confederate Flag Day in Arkansas.

Following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, a Black man who was killed by a police officer in May 2020, a larger number of people protested against Confederate flags and rebelled enough to remove the statues of Confederate leaders.

While some view the flag as a symbol of Southern pride, the flag also has a dark history to it.

For decades, the Confederate flag — with its red background, blue X, and white stars — has been waved by the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other white supremacists in the country.

Confederate flags were banned by 2020 in several places across the United States, such as NASCAR events and military installations.

A variety of large retailers, like Amazon and Walmart, no longer permit the sale of the flag or any Confederate merchandise.

In June 2020, lawmakers in Mississippi voted to replace their Confederate-themed state flag.

The Arkansas state flag continues to have ties to the Confederacy itself. The three stars below “Arkansas” represent the three countries the state has belonged to, but the fourth star, located above the word, was added to represent the Confederacy.

Two bills were presented in 2019 alone to change the meaning of the fourth star, but both were blocked by the committee before they could ever see the floor.

If the bill proposed on Friday gets passed by the committee and ultimately makes its way to the governor’s desk, Arkansas could potentially see the removal of one of its ties to the Confederacy.

Parler CEO goes into hiding with family after receiving death threats

Sunday, January 17, 2021

A new court filing on Friday from the legal team of Parler, an alternative social media platform mainly used right-wingers in the US, has revealed that its CEO John Matze and his family are in hiding as they received death threats.

"Matze himself, as the CEO of the company Amazon Web Services (AWS) continues to vilify, has had to leave his home and go into hiding with his family after receiving death threats and invasive personal security breaches," read the filing.

Parler had earlier launched an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon after the tech giant removed Parler from its services after the last week's riots on the Capitol.

Amazon filed a response to the lawsuit, claiming the lawsuit has no legal basis, and alleged its workers have been faced with threats and harassment.

The filing from Parler's lawyers obtained by Fox News observes the disturbing claims made by Amazon but note that the Jeff Bezos-owned company is not the one receiving threats.

"Although AWS's motion to seal focuses only on its own employees, Parler's employees have been similarly harassed and threatened... Parler's CEO, John Matze, Jr., reports in his declaration in support of Parler's TRO motion that many Parler employees are suffering harassment and hostility, fear for their safety and that of their families, and in some cases have fled their home state to escape persecution," the filing read.

Earlier this week, Matze said about the various threats he has received and the measures he would take to protect his family.

"There is a group called UGNazi that is targeting me," Matze said, noting the controversial hacker group has released many of his passwords and personal information on the internet.

"They published my street address, they threatened to come through my front door," he added.

On January 6, a number of people had stormed the US Capitol to protest against the legislators confirming electoral slates from battleground states they thought were invalid. The protest also turned violent, resulting in the deaths of at least five people, including a police officer.

Amid rising pressure on US President Donald Trump for his role in encouraging the protestors, Parler was banned by Amazon, Apple, and Google.

According to The Verge, these bans come after the allegations that the social media app was fostering calls to violence ahead of, and following, the raid on the US Capitol.

Parler CEO John Matze had then alleged Amazon, Google, and Apple of a coordinated attack to kill competition.

"We were too successful too fast," Matze wrote. "You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don't count us out."

Matze maintains that no evidence has been provided so far which would prove that Parler was involved in Capitol riots.

Stolen car recovered has been stolen again from an impound lot in Ohio

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Police attended Hilltop Garage at 12:09 p.m. November 9 to finish a stolen vehicle report on an SUV reported stolen a day ago. The car was recovered in a restaurant parking lot following the report.

However, when the officer arrived at the impound lot at Hilltop Garage, Independence, Ohio, he was informed that the stolen SUV had been re-stolen from the impound lot 30 minutes prior to the officer's arrival.

Reports noted that the vehicle owner also attended the scene to retrieve his SUV, but was “notified that someone had stolen his vehicle again,” reports said.

A Hilltop worker reportedly witnessed the theft and gave a description of the vehicle the suspects arrived in, but there were no further details on the suspects at the time of the report.

A driver was pulled over at 11:14 a.m. November 6 after the odor of burned marijuana was noticed coming from the vehicle.

A .40-caliber automatic handgun was discovered inside the car during the stop. The driver was arrested for possessing a firearm. Reports added that he has “an extensive criminal history for drug trafficking and is prohibited from possessing a firearm”.

A man was arrested for theft at 9:19 a.m. November 8 when he was observed by Drug Mart store security putting $140 worth of merchandise into a backpack. He also had several outstanding warrants. He was turned over to Avon police officers on one of the warrants.

A man was arrested at a Red Roof Inn when police checking the parking lot saw a handgun that appeared to be loaded in the front seat of the man’s SUV.

The man was wanted on outstanding warrants and was arrested on those warrants, with the possibility of additional charges associated to illegal weapons possession pending.

Gangster Bishnoi moves High Court over fears of encounter

Sunday, December 13, 2020

Lawrence Bishnoi

Chandigarh-born gangster Lawrence Bishnoi moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking directions for handcuffing him if he was brought to Chandigarh on a production warrant after expressing “genuine apprehension” of death in an encounter “as done in the infamous case of Vikas Dubey”.

Appearing before the Bench of Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill through video-conferencing, his counsel Prateek Gupta contended that the petitioner was confined in Bharatpur jail of Rajasthan for the past about five years. He said the petitioner, as such, had to be interrogated in Rajasthan. In the alternative, he would be kept handcuffed if required in Chandigarh, Gupta added, while seeking directions for securing his life.

Gupta also sought directions for dispensing with his physical presence in relation to the investigation of an FIR registered on May 31 at the Sector 34 police station for the attempt to murder, house trespass, and other offenses under Sections 452, 307, and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, besides provisions of the Arms Act. Gupta also urged interrogation through video-conferencing.

Gupta submitted that the petitioner was actively involved in politics while he was in college. He was active even thereafter. As a result, he had a political rivalry and was involved in a huge number of cases in Haryana and Punjab. He was now sought to be nominated as an accused in some FIRs in Chandigarh as well.

UT public prosecutor AM Punchhi submitted that the petitioner had himself asked that he might be brought handcuffed and the state certainly had no objection to it. His safety would be ensured under all circumstances.

Before parting, Justice Gill directed Punchhi to furnish information of measures proposed to be taken in case the petitioner was to be brought to Chandigarh. He was also asked to give details of the manpower and vehicle deployment, apart from specifying “whether any arrangement is possible for video-recording the entire transit”. 

Bishnoi was to a well-off agriculturist in the village of Dhattaranwali near Abohar in Ferozpur district, Chattisgarh.

Bishnoi hit the national headlines when one of his associates, Sampat Nehra, was arrested from Bengaluru in June 2018. Nehra, son of a former ASI of Chandigarh Police, had revealed during interrogation his plan to killed Bollywood star Salman Khan — who was convicted in the blackbuck poaching case — at the behest of Bishnoi, who is lodged in Bharatpur Jail of Rajasthan and is believed to run his activities using cell phones inside the prison.

In November 2019, when Bishnoi was brought to Chandigarh on warrants for interrogation in the murder case of Rajveer, alias Sonu Shah, a criminal-turned-property dealer, evidence emerged to show that he was using a cell phone inside Bharatpur Jail for extortion, murders, and settling of property disputes. Chandigarh Police had taken up the matter with Bharatpur jail authorities. According to Chandigarh police records, 7 FIRs were registered against Bishnoi in the city — he was acquitted in four of them.

Leftists angry over NDA's victory in 2020 Bihar elections

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

National Democratic Alliance (NDA) which consisted of Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and Janta Dal United (JDU) have won the Bihar elections by securing 125 seats.

Similarly, the Bypoll results from 11 states were in favor of BJP who won 37 seats and leads 4 out of 58 of them.

But liberals are angry over NDA's victory in 2020 Bihar elections to the extent that they have refused to concede their defeat in 2020 Bihar elections.

Starting with Digvijay Singh, the Indian Congress leader and former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, he reacted to the results by saying that "Selective tampering is done" in the EVM machine.

Other reactions include:


Pushpam Priya Choudhary is a CM candidate for Bihar who gained fewer votes than the None of the above (NOTA) votes. 

This entire scenario is in contrast with their reaction to the recent US elections where they are frequently asking Donald Trump to admit defeat in the elections despite the clear evidence of voting irregularities

Sunday, October 18, 2020

Isabella DeLuca

Isabella DeLuca, was attending the Women’s March in Washington, DC on 17 October for showing support for Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

DeLuca was toting a ‘Trump 2020’ flag to not only show support for Judge Barrett, but also for the US President Donald Trump who is standing as a Republican candidate for the 2020 presidential elections.

DeLuca was approached and assaulted while attending the rally by a woman she referred to as a “geriatric older female” according to the National File.

“The first woman was a white older woman – she had glasses on, a glittery bedazzled Black Lives Matter shirt,” Deluca informed National File. “She looked like she could’ve been my grandma, honestly.”

Black Lives Matter protestors grabbed DeLuca’s flag, and was punched when she was attempting to retrieve it. This led other members of the Women’s March to join in hitting, pushing and punching DeLuca.

DeLuca was hospitalized and given a cervical collar because of the damage from the injuries. She had “extensive head and neck injuries, had her lips bloodied, and is also enduring blurry vision and dizziness,” National File noted.

Pence-Harris Debate: Trump defeated ISIS and China is responsible for coronavirus

Thursday, October 08, 2020

Pence and Harris debate moderated by Susan Page

During the debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence, Pence laid out the points that it was because of Donald Trump's presidency that ISIS caliphate was destroyed.

Harris provided no argument against that.

Pence also pointed out that China is responsible for coronavirus.

Again, Harris provided no argument against that either.

Are democrats unwilling to oppose Islamic terrorism and the Chinese Communist Party? 

I am not sure what else can be concluded.

Obama was among the most prominent democrats who opposed even the mention of 'Islamic terrorism'. Similarly, I am unaware of any criticism from democrats that had been made against the clear mishandling of coronavirus by China.
