Frankly, what kind of nincompoops we have in our public discourse.
Indian Express is jumping up and down on Ranjan Gogoi, former Chief Justice of India, having taken up the Rajya Sabha nomination by the President, Ram Nath Kovind.
It’s like a barking dog which hasn’t pissed for two hours and is scratching at the exit door.
Express has scavenged its own plate of former lawyers and judges who have a hangdog expression of a mongrel in claiming arbiters (judiciary) would now be seen in bed with the litigant (government).
(In a separate story, this rag typically distorts an old Gogoi exchange with a lawyer. Gogoi had asked the lawyer if he believed post-retirement jobs is a scar on judiciary. Express puts it as Gogoi’s own views!!! Do click this hyperlink and mark the difference between the headline and the text.)
For god’s sake, what’s Gogoi’s crime? How does it fit the punishment he is getting at the hands of mockingbirds?
Shekhar Gupta, like a devil quoting from the scriptures, finds it morally repugnant on his website. Should we even bother what the cocktail-couple Rajdeep Sardesai and Sagarika Ghose think about it? Or second guess what shows up on the twitter timelines of Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan?
Would somebody ask these hopeless creatures how does a Rajya Sabha seat benefit a former Chief Justice of India? Does he get more money than he would have otherwise as post-retirement benefits? Does he get more in terms of travel benefits which a senior citizen in Makkhiganj gets by way of routine? Is a salary of Rs 16,000 such a lolly? Is it worth your time to spend time in a branch of legislature where you could be flanked by illiterates?
Want to know his daily, dearness and travel allowance? The sum he would get for office-expense? The free telephone calls which would be his privilege? Click this link and quarantine yourself in a fortnight of shame. Just ask yourself what could have goaded Gogoi to accept the Rajya Sabha offer when he could have easily put his feet up and basked in the afterglow of his Ram Temple judgment? How big is the perk of a Rajya Sabha seat for a former Chief Justice of India?
A Manmohan Singh to this day, with bypass surgeries and all, thinks he could contribute at 88. ( Some loyalties don’t come with expiry dates). A Yashwant Sinha still can’t live without the limelight. The legal legend, K. Parsaran is busy with Sabrimala after Ram Temple at the tender age of 92. Why this nation would like to lose out on a living authority on law and Constitution in Gogoi? Wouldn’t it prepare our legislatures to be Constitutionally correct in passing a contentious bill?
Could you guess who were Franklin Roosevelt, James Madison, John Quincy Adams, Woodrow Wilson, Bill Clinton or Barack Obama before they became the president of the United States? Or Clement Atlee, Tony Blair for United Kingdom? Lawyers, of course. Why their legal stances didn’t come in their way of vying for White House or 10 Downing Street? How come no barb comes the way of Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Singhvi who take sides on “religious” battles while remaining stalwarts of “secular” Congress?
Just think. How many would be more worthy than Gogoi to be in Rajya Sabha? What does he gain by way of money or power or prestige? Would he be remembered in annals as a legal light or a member of parliament? Why would he open himself to ridicule in such a polarized society? To hear and read nonsense from imbeciles? How is it “copulating” between judiciary and legislature when the man is in no position to influence the former or to be the casting vote on the latter?
It would also do us no harm to know of Gogoi’s background. He belongs to a royal family from his mother’s side. His father was once the chief minister of Assam. Power and money isn’t new to him. He was born into it. Adulating heads he would’ve seen from the very first day of his life. And now we are supposedly giving him “nirvana” with a Rajya Sabha seat. No shit, Sherlock.
And how does Narendra Modi gain in influencing Gogoi’s presence in Rajya Sabha? Wouldn’t he be better off in choosing a yes man than one who could intellectually be a problem? Why to convey even a hint of suspicion on Ram Temple judgment? Well, of course, unless Modi thinks that our Parliament could do with the presence of such a luminary.
This is the level of discourse India is reducing itself to these days. A few newspapers and crackpots are its’ Pope. Throw them out in the first sewer you find on our roads. A few deranged are telling you to take leave of your common sense.
Don’t do it.

Hindus of India—there is no other nation for them in the world—beware. George Soros, the face of evil, has come out in open against you. He has spoken against “Hindu nationalist state” of Narendra Modi and stoked fears of Muslims on Kashmir and Citizenship Act. It’s a warning that he would throw India into turmoil. A long night is ahead of us.
(As a twitterati puts it: “Mahabaharat and Samudra Manthan! Two events in which there were clearly two sides. Perhaps we are nearing a third such event.”)
Most of you won’t know him. But looking at morning’s newspapers or watching TV channels who back “tukde-tukde gang,” you should have some idea of the hold he has on India’s deep and dark ecosystem which hid him from your gaze for so long. Now he is out in open. You would also now be able to connect the dots on protests and violence on the streets; recognize the political actors and media who are out to remove Modi and leave you a headless chicken. Trust me, it’s now or never: Be counted.
I expose this devil to you in reverse order: (a) What the democratic world thinks about him; (b) Profile the man who thinks he is a God and what shapes his worldview; (c) Cite his monstrous acts and back it with authentic, leaked sources (d) How he brainwashes you with his hold on media and academia.
The free world on George Soros
After being ousted from office in the wake of 2016 Panama Papers scandal, Iceland’s prime minister Sigmundur Davio Gunnlaugsson accused Soros of having bankrolled a conspiracy to remove him from power;
In November 2018, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Edrogan denounced Soros as the man who “assigns people to divide nations and shatter them”;
The United States president Donald Trump has alleged that cash was being handed out to people in Honduras to storm the US border and suggested the cash might have come from Soros;
Italy’s former deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has accuses Soros of wanting to fill his country with migrants because “he likes slaves”;
The leader of the UK’s Brexit Party, Nigel Farage, has claimed Soros is encouraging people “to flood Europe” and “in many ways is the biggest danger to the entire Western World”;
Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orban claims that Soros has a secret plot to flood Hungary with migrants and destroy their nation. “We are fighting an enemy that is different from us. Not open but hiding. Not straightforward by crafty. Not honest but unprincipled…feels it owns the world.”
Indeed, the Hungarian government spent 100m Euros on a media campaign, warning voters not to let Soros “have the last laugh” in elections last October.
The man who thinks he is a God
Soros, now pushing 90 and one of world’s richest man, is Hungarian by birth. “Soros” means “soar” in Esperanto, the language its believers-like his father did–want to be the world tongue. A worldview where nationalism would disappear, along with dialects and boundaries.
After World War II, Soros attended London School of Economics. He became hooked to the writings of Karl Popper (1902-94), the Viennese-born professor who advocated Open Society, a place where tribal affinities to religion and nationalism would’ve no place.
After graduating, Soros became a banker and mastered the craft of arbitraging—making profits by trading currencies. He relocated himself to New York City in 1959. He formulated his own Theory of Reflexivity, where if you could observe a phenomenon from afar, you could be on top of it. It allowed him to make massive money in the Recession of 1973 as well as in 2008, and he is known as “the man who broke the Bank of England” in 1992. Aware that the British government was promoting the pound sterling, Soros acquired millions of pounds. Bad press, political infighting, and resignation of Prime Minister John Major followed, pound sterling was withdrawn from European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM) and the currency plummeted. Soros now sold his stuff and pocketed over $1 billion. Pensions diminished of retirees; old people had their savings wiped out.
Soros was beginning to “fancy myself as some kind of god,” as he himself was to state later. The influence of Karl Popper was evident long before and his obsession with open borders made him launch Open Society Foundations in 1979. The dubious foundation presently operates in 120 countries and has so far donated over $32 billion towards causes which end up destroying societies, religions and nations.
Soros, the crimes and the proof
In 2016, DC Leaks, got into the Soros files and released them. The disclosures concerned Soros’ Open Society Foundations aim to eradicate national sovereignty. A key paper described the Syrian refugee crisis as an opportunity to create havoc in societies; flood Europe and the US and make the old borders and institutions irrelevant.
DC Leaks further revealed that Open Society Foundations funded groups which had devoted themselves to BDS (Boycott, Disinvestment, Sanctions) in both Israel and Palestine.
In the United States, in order to destabilize the Roman Catholic Church, Soros promoted Left-leaning Catholic groups who promoted gay marriage, abortion and physician-assisted suicide. Bill Donohue, president o the Catholic League didn’t mince his words when Soros’ let loose his forces before the arrival of Pope Francis’ to the United States in 2015. He accused such forces of fomenting revolution, creating mutiny and are “front for George Soros…and designed to create fissures in the Catholic Church.”
Another Soros’ intiative is Black Lives Matter, a radical group which propositions that police are inherently racist. A rabid propaganda ensures that police is frozen into inaction and “depolicing” occurs. (Do draw a parallel with situation in Jamia, JNU and Shaheen Bagh protests which has reduced police into inaction). Open Society Foundations has donated hundreds and thousands of dollars to Black Lives Matter.
Two decades ago, Soros began campaign to decriminalize marijuana and other illegal drugs. The stress was on counseling and rehabilitation of the drug-users and not arrest or imprisonment. Poisonous propaganda led many states in the United States to legalize marijuana in due course. But data proves that drug-use has only increased and not decreased. Youth are losing vitality and the social fabric of the society is thus weakened.
Soros’ hold on media
It’s been documented that Soros controls media through actions which are labyrinthine in nature. WikiLeaks has shown Soros’ journalists shaped media coverage of events in Ukraine. His operatives were instructed to “select journalists from the five target countries (Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Greece) and offered them long-stay reporting trips in Ukraine.” The operatives retained a right to veto on stories—and thus they could shortlist and shape what they wanted journalists to write.
There are several NGOs which George Soros operates or finances. It donated $100 million to Human Rights Watch. CIA-created Radio Free Europe—which played its role in the breakup of Yugoslavia—is funded by Soros. His International Crisis Group had luminaries such as Zbigniew Brzezinki and General Wesley Clark, once NATO supreme allied commander for Europe. Stephen Solarz, one the group’s vice-chairman, was a signatory to a letter in 1998 which asked President Bill Clinton to bring down “Saddam and his regime” in Iraq. Soros’ business partners at the Carlyle Group—one of world’s largest private equity funds—made massive profits from defense contracts. These partners included former secretary of state James Baker and Frank Carlucci, former defense secretary.” Again, Soros had invested more than $100 million in Carlyle Group.
It’s easy to see how Soros remains out-of-bounds for most governments. He works through charity and donations to groups he can control or influence. He is difficult to pin down, a faceless enemy to societies and nations. Anarchy could lead to weakening of governments; institutions and national assets become up for grab for investor-sharks such as Soros. In the Sorosian world order, constitutional republics must be weakened and its allies degraded.
That Soros is now interested in India should tell you the threat Modi and the rise of Hindus is proving to the global Left. It’s an effort to destroy governments and impose dictatorship of the elites across the landscape. Left never allows natives to rise: it’s an existential battle for India and Hindus.
