“I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.” ― Richard P. Feynman

Most of the world is full of people who behave like the kid who just learned alphabets and numerals and announced “E=MC2? Of course, I know what it means! I recognize the letters and numbers!”

It is one thing to know the name of something via superficial twaddle of media around us but quite another to dig deeper into things and use your intelligence to understand how the world is truly behaving.

What is true of national politics and geopolitics is also true of the spiritual path.  So when someone asks me how can one align politics with spirituality, I can only smile at such idiocy.  It is life.  The politics, spirituality, the job, the family, birth, and death.  It is all life!   Life, life, and life!

You have created boxes around things.  And, then you want to pursue and experience the Truth of this existence in its “one-ness”? Whoa!

the asinine world of Indian historians

Once upon a time, we stupid Indians have been told, that some tribesmen called Aryans came all the way from Central Asia.  They had gods for every nature object - Vayu, Agni, etc and their king - Indra.

They came to Harappa - the Indus banks and they found these dark indigenous who were not able to withstand their onslaught.  And, they were pushed Southwards - and are known as Dravidians.  Obviously, most died.

Interesting story, right?  Hmmm.

Then these blokes wrote Puranas and other books and everywhere Shiva was the highest of the beings/gods - the Mahadev.  And Agni, Vayu, and Indra were the lesser gods - the devas.  In fact, they have always been screwing things up and running up to Mahadev who ultimately resolves things and saves them.

Let us put in a proper perspective.  So these extra aggressive, great warriors called Aryans came and started killing the indigenous who either died or ran Southwards.  And, then?

Then, Aryans were like - “Dude, Nowww.. we will take their god and make him Mahadev.  How about that?”

The sidekick in that tribe - “What about our gods?”

The leader - “Oh, them, we will henceforth treat them like sidekicks and jokers!  The god of these weaklings whom we just killed will be the greatest god in our world!’

And the entire tribe was shocked.  Rolling its eyes.  Say what?!!

Have you ever - I mean EVER - heard such fatuous tripe in your life?  Outside of your history class?

But this was put in our books and we even believed in it!  And, every time I think of it, I am thinking - what the heck were we even smoking all these years?  The last few generations were really living in some la-la-land!

Here is the Harappan Lingam (Source) that was excavated in 1940 by MS Vats.

Stupidity is the greatest strength of the so-called historians when it comes to their half-arse research on India.  Here is “Doris Srinivasan” who published this crap in Cambridge publications. (Source)  Just read this slowly and carefully.

Her postulation is - Harappans had Shiva.  Hindus have Shiva.  But Hindus were Aryans, so Shiva was not Hindu.  Says who?  We historians.  So you historians put forward Santa-Clausian drivel called Aryan Invasion Theory and then use it to construct every other idiocy in the name of “historical research?”

Does this even make any sense?

the Hunter Biden hard drives and geopolitical impact

Have you seen this virologist being interviewed on almost every channel?  She spoke eloquently about how China hid the COVID outbreak and fooled the world?

Dr. Li-Meng Yan is a virologist who has specialized in virology and immunology at the Hong Kong School of Public Health.  She received her MD degree from XiangYa Medical College of Central South University (China), and Ph.D. from Southern Medical University (China) (Source).

She was trying to bring out her findings for a long time but had been censored by the Chinese Communist Party.  At that time, Lude media/Press founded by Lude (Wang DingGang) started working with her. (Source)

Lude media is an “independent news platform that can disseminate the truth about the CCP.”  (Source)  They helped Dr. Li to come out of China and talk about the role of CCP.

Lude used Guo Wengui’s help to rescue Dr. Yan Limeng, a Hong Kong virologist who fled to the U.S. in April 2020. Dr. Yan started contacting Lude at the end of 2019 wanting to expose the truth about the Coronavirus to the world through Lude Media. Beginning on January 19, 2020, Lude worked with Dr.Yan to report the truth about the coronavirus. Lude Media was the world’s first media to report the evidence that the new coronavirus originated from the Chinese military P4 laboratory in Wuhan, Hubei.  (Source)

Who is Guo Wengui?  He is a Chinese billionaire and a political activist.  He controls Beijing Zenith Holdings and other assets. At the peak of his career, he was 73rd among the richest in China.  He is friends with Steve Bannon and the Trump campaign. (Source)

Btw, that video from WION news you see at the beginning of this section with Dr. Li?  It was censored by Facebook.

If a user tries to share some of WION’s stories on Facebook, they may see a prompt saying the following: “False information: Checked by independent fact checkers".  (Source)

“Fact-checkers?” Yeah sure!!  Does that tell you something?

Now Lude Media has been releasing information at different times about things that eventually become big later on.  The CCP-Coronavirus story for example.  In his September 24th broadcast, for example, he talked about three hard drives.

What do these hard drives have?  Check the video.  But here is a quick summary.

Sept.24th Lude's broadcast: 3 hard drives.Jiang Zemin, Zeng Qinghong, Meng Jianzhu made the move - provided 3 hard drives to the DOJ of America, and another copy to Nancy Pelosi. However, with the help from our fellow fighter, these hard drives reached the hands of President Trump.The 1st hard drive: sex tapes & pedo tapes of Hunter Biden, as well as his 4.5 billion dollars secret deal with Xi & Wang;The 2nd hard drive: the allocation of Xi & Wang's overseas wealth, and 'the architecture & art project', which is the information of their illegitimate children;The 3rd hard drive: CCP's bioweapon

Hunter Biden has been a loser for the most part.  For example, the US Navy had thrown him out because he was a cocaine addict.

Whether he is also a pedophile or not, prima facie one has no evidence.  But we did discuss the Epstein case and the story of the Pedophile island, where Clinton and many Democrat politicians and press sympathizers had been sighted. (Issue #101: Pedophile Island of Liberals)

So who knows?

However, one thing is clear.  If US President and his staff have gotten its hands on to the hard drives with the information that Lude Media says they have (and we have already heard about two hard drives being “discovered”), then the Trump administration may have the wherewithal to push strongly against the Chinese.

And, what came out recently on Hunter Biden may just have been the trailer to the real movie.  Maybe just to check the tentacles of the liberal media and the power of social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to bury a story.  This understanding can lead to proper counter-measures by the Trump administration.  Check the next story after this about Section 230 and the politics around it.

the geopolitical ramifications

The Chinese link, their involvement in the US Presidential race, and threat to national security is causing a lot of heart-ache in the Trump administration. This may lend itself to a larger geopolitical war.  Let us look at that.

Just five days back, the Trump administration has pushed for sophisticated missiles sales to Taiwan.

The Trump administration is pushing the sale of seven large packages of weapons to Taiwan, including long-range missiles that would allow Taiwanese jets to hit distant Chinese targets in the event of a conflict, say officials familiar with the proposals. (Source)

And now comes the news that the Chinese government is preparing for an invasion of Taiwan.

Beijing is stepping up the militarization of its southeast coast as it prepares for a possible invasion of Taiwan, military observers and sources have said.  The People’s Liberation Army has been upgrading its missile bases, and one Beijing-based military source said it has deployed its most advanced hypersonic missile the DF-17 to the area. (Source)

Meanwhile, we have discussed in our earlier newsletter as to how Chinese President Xi Jinping has asked his forces to be ready for war (could be with India and/or Taiwan).

Xi Jinping readies for war with India: Chinese President Xi Jinping has raked up a fresh controversy. According to reports, Jinping has asked the People's Liberation Army (PLA) of China to prepare for a war with India. While visiting a military base in Guangdong province on October 13 (Tuesday), the Chinese President told the troops to "put all (their) minds and energy on preparing for war," reported CNN. (Source)

And, yesterday, we also noted that India has started rush order purchase of high altitude war kits.  Yesterday, India tested its BrahMos missile from INS Chennai.

India on Sunday successfully test-fired the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from the indigenously-built stealth destroyer INS Chennai, with the weapon hitting a pre-designated target in the Arabian Sea, the defense ministry said in a statement.  The 290-km range missile --- an Indo-Russian joint venture --- has land, air and naval variants.  “The missile hit the target with pinpoint accuracy after performing high-level and extremely complex maneuvers. BrahMos as prime strike weapon will ensure the warship’s invincibility by engaging naval surface targets at long ranges, thus making the destroyer another lethal platform of Indian Navy,” it said. (Source)

Why is Taiwan’s militarization so important?  It can do a lot of damage if it can strike the Chinese mainland.  For example, there is a Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze.  It is quite dubious in how it was conceived and the danger it poses. Read this report by the Japan Times. (Source)  Also, watch today’s video on it.

A strategist at Taiwan’s renowned Tamkang University has suggested that the Three Gorges dam can be brought down with just two missiles.  And, this dam is one of the strategic targets that Taiwan is targeting.

The Taiwanese military has ramped up funding for developing more powerful, longer-range missiles that can put Shanghai, Guangzhou, and even the Three Gorges Dam within range. (Source)

From the Hunter Biden hard drives to the Three Gorges dam, it is a long series of connections that working themselves out.  The world is moving towards a war.  And India will have to be a part of that war simply because of its neighbors.  The normal liberal claptrap will be that Modi brought it upon India, which is obviously the Chinese propaganda given a platform in India.

The reality is something else altogether.

reigning in the social media platforms - Trump administration

We had discussed that the social media platforms and their reactions are being “tested” and studied.  Well, there may be some actions coming to reign their powers in by the Trump administration.  The crux is Section 230. Here is some background.

Jack Dorsey elaborated on Twitter’s role in the NY Post controversy.  Was that a “self-goal?”

Provide context to the news?  Isn’t that opinion?  Doesn’t sharing opinions on the news makes you a publisher, to begin with?  Which is exactly what Congressman Steube asks.

Why is this important for us?  Because there is a Section 230 which shields platforms like Twitter and Facebook from the laws and rules that apply to publishers.

The First Amendment protects free speech, including hate speech, but Section 230 shields websites from liability for content created by their users. It permits internet companies to moderate their sites without being on the hook legally for everything they host. It does not provide blanket protection from legal responsibility for some criminal acts, like posting child pornography or violations of intellectual property. (Source)

The FCC Commissioner, Ajit Pai, meanwhile is looking into the whole discussion of protections that Social Media platforms are getting under Section 230.

The Federal Communications Commission's chairman said Thursday that the agency will seek to clarify regulations affecting social media, a move that could lead to the powerful companies behind the platforms becoming subject to the same rules as publishers. In a tweet Thursday, FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai said the FCC will initiate “rulemaking to clarify” the meaning of Section 230 of the 1934 Communications Act after the Trump administration earlier this year filed a petition, contesting the legal shields afforded to social media companies (Source)

Once this happens in the US, it may be an appropriate time for the Indian government to follow suit and bring in a tougher bill against these platforms.

For, right now, they are a national threat.  Maybe, even a global threat!

the three gorges dam - its dangers and risks to its survival

The dam could be at massive risk of collapse in event of a military conflict with Taiwan or a terrorist attack.

What kind of structural flaws does this dam have?  What can happen if they play out?  Check this interview with Mr. Wang Weiluo, a top water expert, who discusses how the fatal structural flaws of the Three Gorges Dam could induce earthquakes and flooding and eventually cause the dam to suffer a devastating blow.
