1. Anti-Hindu Hate in Top Western Universities

In a detailed thread, Rishap, himself a faculty at Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, shares the details of the WhatsApp chats that Mukulika Banerjee, a professor at London School of Economics had with students with the express objective of targeting Karan Kataria, a Hindu student at LSE who ran for the post of General Secretary elections at the University, for his faith.

In fact, she is close with the Congress Party group and hosted Rahul Gandhi when he was in London to diss India and its democracy.  She made personal calls to students to "cancel" Kataria for being a Hindu!

Here is the letter that Karan shared on Twitter regarding how he was targeted by the Hindu-hating professors and ecosystem.

Here is an interview that The New Indian had with Karan.

But Karan was not the only one to be targeted.  All those who campaigned with him or were his friends were targeted specifically.  Check this tweet from Tejashwini Shankar.

This is not the only case of targeting of Hindu students for their faith.  Rashmi Samant, the first Indian woman to be elected as president of the Oxford University Students’ Union (OUSU) was forced to resign when she was targeted viciously because she is a Hindu.

2. Silencing Americans

Over the last few years, a certain group has been working to slowly take over the US and the global geopolitics.  This time, there are 2 bills which are finding their their way through Congress, backed by the Biden White House and the establishment wings of both parties.  These bills will empower the Executive Branch to ban social media apps and platforms at will.  What will they use as bait?  Fear of China.

3. How the Chinese are Infiltrating the US

The Chinese strategy to infiltrate and create sleeping cells and staging units inside the US is just brilliant (from their standpoint) and downright asinine from the American standpoint.  Please read this shocking threat from journalist Lara Logan.  It will shock you completely!

4. Trump's Arraignment

America's 45th President Donald Trump was arraigned today.  It will change the US forever, where the Democrats targeted a major political opponent who is running for President in 2024.  Targeting opposition candidates is not democracy.

And, from the looks of it, the case may not even amount to much.  In the end, it will lead to bolstering the case for Trump.  

PS - if you so want to be a 3rd world banana democracy, at least learn the ways of how you don't pin your opponents up!

5. Spiraling US Economy

How bad is the situation with the American economy right now?  Rising inflation, large layoffs and rising rates. Banks are failing and will continue to in future. The US economy is in a tizzy.
