#SupremeCourt questions Govt and CVC in #CBIvsCBI: "Why not be completely fair? What's the difficulty in consulting the Selection Committee? It is better to consult the Selection Committee than not to consult."
#CBIvsCBI: "The essence of every government action is what's the best for administration. It is not only a question of adherence to law but better adherence to law," #CJI tells Solicitor General Tushar Mehta.
#CBIvsCBI: The Court adds even if exigencies occur, is it not advisable to go to the Committee at some stage? "This hasn't happened overnight and the AG said this yesterday. If the Govt and CVC tolerated this since July, then why not go to the Selection Committee?"asks SC.

Since many people question the contribution of RSS /Hindutva ideology towards India's freedom struggle...

I am writing this #RightFactsThread

Let's start:

1. Contribution of Congress Vs that of Hindutva in

#IndianFreedomMovement

1/n
Congress origin was to maintain status-Quo of British policies, also to act as a safety valve..to prevent a repeat of 1857

Hindutva came up as Tilak, Aurobindo, thought "Hindu mythology" vl help mobilisation of people & achievements of Vedic civilization vl instill pride

2/n
While Britishers were claiming their aim was 'civilising mission"

Congress (Nehruvians) adopted the #SuitBoot Culture surrendering to prayers& petition politics

While Hindutva says we knew Democracy, Republican ideas from times of Lichchhavis, Yaudheyas, Vaishali..

2. Gandhiji recruited for Britisher army during World War 1..he was even faced lot of protests by locals in Bihar..

For his services Gandhiji was given the awar #kaiser_e_Hind..The Highest award of Loyality to Britishers!!!

2/n
Even MuZlums as a community were called as LOYALISTS ..they served to British interests so much that British rewarded them...

1. Parity in Talks viz-a-viz Congress in Round table confs
2. Shifted Capital to Delhi in 1911 as Mughal history is dear to British stooges

Please take the time to read: The Five-Year-Old Who Was Detained at the Border and Persuaded to Sign Away Her Rights, by Sarah Stillman - a few thoughts from me to follow... newyorker.com/news/news-desk… via @NewYorker
The first thing to note is that the separation from a child from her grandmother upon arrival to the U.S. is that it appears to have taken place after the president supposedly ordered the forceful separations stopped...
A second thing to note is that the implementation of these separation policies requires the joint cooperation of both DHS & HHS - Secretaries Nielsen and Azar at the top, and the many deputies who work under their chain of command...

In which RVS Mani tells me how he was tortured by Congress era fabricators of 'Saffron Terror' myth. And I point out that #BJP has a reward system for these myth-makers -- eg, @RajKSinghIndia who helped fabricate the 'Saffron Terror' fiction. #PondyLitFest
Here is @RajKSinghIndia brazenly selling the 'Saffron Terror' 'Hindu Terror' lie to media. This was *after* #Congress had retracted its fiction. He now sits as a Minister in #BJP Government.
It was distressing listening to Sadhvi Pragya recount her harrowing, degrading experience while in ATS custody. @vijayvaani and I had organised a march (KPS Gill joined us) to NHRC on Nov 22, 2008. On the basis of our petition, NHRC sought a full report.

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

By: @Anis_Shivani for @AlterNet
Thread ✔
1/
Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

2/
I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

@manu1154 @kaltimevel @IamAlok_INC @GenZinfrenzy @Mayavi101 @The_veenaD @ANI @vxtandon1 @INCIndia @RahulGandhi @e_postmortem “The Hindu–German Conspiracy “ was a series of plans between 1914 and 1917 by Indian nationalist groups to attempt Pan-Indian rebellion against the British Raj during World War One 🤔

Senator Lindsey Graham cited his experience as a judge today,in angry comments after Dr Blase Ford's testimony. He didn't mention he was kicked off that job; Military Appeals Court said it was unconsitutional to be both. scribd.com/document/38961… #WHPDaily #Indivisible #AltGov #Law

THREAD: This summer @DNI @SenDanCoats said that when it came to #cybersecurity, the lights were "blinking red." After reading @KimZetter's penetrating piece, it is more clear than ever that when it comes to #ElectionSecurity, America has turned off the alarm system. /1
Quite simply, despite an unprecented act of information warfare combining espionage, computational propoganda, computer hacking and exploitation of our election systems, our country has not taken sufficient action to reduce the risk of it happening again and again /2
I don't mean to disrespect my former @DHS colleagues, who repeatedly have said they have seen no signs of direct manipulation of election votes, but this quote from @KimZetter's piece is damning: "the truth is that no one has really looked for evidence" of election hacking. /3

A story in honor of the #TexasSenateDebate:

My parents live in #EastTexas, in a district represented by one of the most conservative members of #Congress. However, my mom is one of the most liberal I know.
After 39 years of marriage, my dad finally let my mom put a bumper sticker on the back of his pickup truck (b/c #Texas) that said "I vote for Democrats." @TexasYDs @scyd_texas @texasdemocrats @BGTX @SmithDems
A few months ago, my dad had to take his truck into the shop. While it was there, one of the workers scratched D-E-M-O-C off the sticker so it read "I vote for rats." Understandably, my mom (who is 71 & under 5 ft, but raised 6 daughters & terrifying when need be) was angry.

Blame-aportioning was not intended purpose. I have pointed out the missing link in the chain that #Congress #BJP and #MSM seem strangely unaware of or are wilfully suppressing. It is for #CBI and Govt to explain why 'Look-Out Notice' was downgraded. Not my job. #MallyaLies 1/n
As far as I am concerned available evidence shows Vijay Mallya planned his exit meticulously. He travelled abroad in October and returned in November 2015. He travelled abroad twice in December 2015. He travelled abroad in January 2016. And then fled in March. #MallyaLies 2/n
Mallya showed up for CBI interrogation. Travelled abroad and returned. All this was to create the false impression that he was not going to flee. It was a criminal mind's work. That #CBI fell for it is amazing. Does not speak highly of its leadership. 3/n

Politicians used to avoid creating power because once created, it can be used by their opponents. First clue something is super wrong: They suddenly don't care. Every #POTUS from now on will have #SpecialCouncel. Goal: Destruction of public confidence in elected governance.
That's crushed tight in a single Tweet, so let's dig in a little. First consider deeply:
One of the biggest caps on the expansion of power in our history has been the goose/gander problem of politics. "If I grant myself this power, the other side will also have this power." Trying to create one-sided political power could be considered the holy grail of US politics.

When we celebrate the #IndependanceDay , lets also remind ourselves of the price a common #Indian had to pay for the Freedom we enjoy today!
Neither should the culprits of #1947Divide be forgotten or forgiven for the sufferings of our people!
Perpetrators for hatching the plot of the #1947Divide were,
1, Winston Churchill, to safeguard the strategic interests of the British Empire in🇮🇳& Indian Oceans
2, Betrayal of Muslims
3, #Congress , the Partner-in-crime that allowed it to happen!
#IndependanceDay
30 Dec 1906,on the birth of Muslim League, ‘Lal Ishtihar’ was distributed appealing to Muslims,
‘not to buy from #Hindus
not touch anything manufactured by them,not to study in the same school
acquire knowledge & send them to jehannum,that Hindus became rich robbing their💰’!
