The Game Of Deception

By W. Vishnu Gupta – 

W. Vishnu Gupta

Yes it appears that  the very same political game played by two Oligarchy teams have started as usual with “dog and pony” media shows to mislead and divert the attention of the real stakeholders of the Presidential election held in November 2019; unsuspecting 12.5 Million voters in Sri Lanka. Somewhat mysterious and hilarious drama episodes have been staged recently with careful dialogue and precise choreography involving local and foreign participants, so far the staged is filled with; SWISS ADVENTURE, HIT AND RUN, CROCODILES AND ESCAPADE OF RANJAN; they are boring and the audience have no interest in watching them as they have unwittingly come to realize and accept these are no different from the “dog and pony” shows directed by all the regimes responsible for ruining our nation in the past seventy plus years. One leading Buddhist Monk who played a leading role in supporting the winning party of November Election paused the question in the national media; “Did we get duped again?” The monk is referring to January 2015 and November 2019, but he was unable to comprehend that we, the Sri Lankans have been duped by Two Oligarchy gangs since 1956 starting with the adventure drama  that was staged by the number one Dupe Master of our history; SWRDB. 

The others following his devious tactics have become much bolder, sharper and sophisticated over the years in playing the political game known as “Let us enjoy the national treasure ourselves and keep the rabble away in misery”. They have become so sophisticated in deceiving rabble every passing day and it was clearly evident in all three cases involving Swiss, Hit and Run and Crocodiles. Isn’t it obvious that our legal system and civilian security apparatus have become the laughing stock in front of the educated voters of the country, in the case of Crocodiles; the defense lawyer claimed that there is no affected victim and Attorney General’s department has agreed with the defense argument tacitly? They conveniently forgot; the victim is the “Rabble” or the voters of Sri Lanka. Attorney General’s department foremost duty must be to protect the rights of Sri Lankans including the right to live in a society devoid of deception and not shield the corrupt oligarchy gangs with flawed or incomplete legal presentations. Corruption breeds corruption and it seems that the oligarchy gangs have successfully spread the corruption cancer inside the administrative, financial, judicial and security apparatus of the country. Hence it is reasonable to assume that every government institution and their management layers have forgotten their primary duty of protecting the people, their birthrights and entitlements. Therefore no wonder that the voters especially, the Sinhala Buddhists are in a dilemma after casting their valuable votes in the November election with high expectations of freeing the government from the clutches of vile politicians leading the oligarchy gangs.

Coin of Corruption

Disillusioned civic and religious leaders believe that the people have been unwittingly applauding the change of guards every four or five years. Flipping the “Coin of Corruption” as an intrinsic act of genuine political game to change the governments in Sri Lanka has lasted for six decades; one side is stamped with the picture of UNP and the other side with that of SLP(F)P. The result of this coin toss is always has been the same; defeat to masses. The rabbles in despair are the victims of rich and mighty corrupt oligarchy club and known abusers of voters trust are never been caught and punished.  It is alleged that the vile political moves are protected by those who operate in the periphery of the oligarchy club; well trained professionals holding important government positions in various fields including medical, security, financial, judiciary and academia have become the guardians of corruption in Sri Lanka. Lack of progress in punishing those criminals involved in the Central Bank bond scam, Easter terrorist attacks and high profiled murder cases add credence to the fact that the oligarchy club has been effectively shielded by the above professionals. The information contained in the latest and fourth political episode “Escapade of Ranjan” will be devastating to those actively engaged in protecting the oligarchy club and it will be interesting to watch all twist and turns of the key players in many “Dog Pony Shows” in the days to come.   

Escapade of Ranjan

Escapade of Ranjan; the “Dog and Pony” show of a well known alleged sexual deviant is the fourth and latest episode to emerge in 2020 as a result of hedonism followed by the oligarchy club of Sri Lanka. This somewhat hilarious episode confirms that police services and judiciary services are highly corrupt due to politicization. Apparently this escapade has not revealed the extent of corruption in Sri Lanka fully yet, it looks like what was revealed so far involving the police officers and judges is just a tip of the iceberg. Isn’t it amazing to note that the tit bits on Ranjan’s activities are released by equally unsavory politicians and not by any official investigator?  This particular episode will be aired most likely for three or four years to divert the attention of miserable Sri Lankans from real issues; hunger, lack of shelter and death from deceases. Contrary to genuine expectations of voters, adventures of Ranjan should be treated as an unexpected New Year gift for the oligarchy leaders because they will be able to play this episode every day to entertain gullible masses without any conclusion. The rabble should not raise their hopes of freeing the Sri Lankan society from corruption because “Ranjan” is no different from those other members in the oligarchy club. 

Alleged actions and remarks made by Ranjan may lead many to observe similarities between him and another character recorded in European history; Casanova. It goes without saying both names are synonymous with “womanizer”. 

The only difference between them is, Casanova was able to complete the most authentic source of customs, behaviors, actions and norms that included European Social Life during 18th century as  Histoire de ma vie (Story of My Life), 

Unfortunately, the substance and evidence; authentic information recorded in CDs to write “Story of Ranjan” fell into the hands of Sri Lankan Police on January 4th 2020. Unlike Histoire de ma vie, published in 1822, “Story of Ranjan”, perhaps the most bona fide source of the corruption of Sri Lankan oligarchy will be never known or published.

    Mr. Vishnu: you are right about the 2 oligarchic gangs – the bi-partisan UNP-SLFP/PP Corruption racket that has turned the Parliament of Sri Lanka into a Cesspit of Corruption with the help of USAID advisors!
    PP headed by US citizens, and UNP’s US puppet butterflies are owned and operated by the US whose game with the UNP an SLFP/PP has always been “heads I win, tails you lose”. Either way Lanka is screwed. Meanwhile, the minorities TNA and SLMC are the other US cats paw in their ACSA, SOFA and MCC project for Sri Lanka.

    Also dog and pony shows are better than the US-Saudi attacks on cultural sites that Trump promises in Iran. The Easter Carnage in Lanka was to weaponize religion and distract from and enable US-ISIL bases to be set up in the Eastern province while the Cesspit Parliament was led by US puppets…

      CID handlings of one govt should not be released to the nation., regardless of the govt change. That is unethical to any democracies, but rogue states such as of ours today, would pass it even to PRESS so that the CID and ministers could fall in danger.
      :
      I think UNHRC should promptly focus on lanken politics of the day since these officers are in danger today. If the officers would not tame to Rajakshe rascals, these officers and their destiny will end up being similar to that of JAMAL KHASHOGI raw dismembered in SAUDI embassy in Turkey a year ago. Rajapakshe are record breakers when it goes to harm HUMAN beings regardless of them being sinhala, tamils, muslims or others. It is a matter of being uncultured and born criminal in their activities. So submissive supporters have no choice but to praise them to the manner Northkoreans being feared do anything in North korea today.

        Leelawathie Jayasinghe,
        “Rajapakshe are record breakers when it goes to harm HUMAN beings regardless of them being sinhala, tamils, muslims or others.”
        Where do you live; in this planet or in Jupiter. Rajapakses saved human beings in this country regardless of them Sinhala, Demala, Muslims or others from Demala barbarians who slaughtered thousands of men, women, children and even unborn babies. It is Demala barbarians who are record breakers when it goes to harm human beings regardless of them being Sinhala, Demala, Muslims or others. According to the history of Sinhale, Dravida barbarians from Hindusthan started slaughtering Native Sinhalayo in 3rd Century BC.

    BTW. Mr. VIshnu Dog and pony shows are to distract as you rightly say:
    1. from the Bond Scam Forensic Audit report.Sri Lankan citizens and groups must come out on the street to protest against the Attorney General and Speaker of the Parliament blocking release of Reports.
    2. Distract from the US-France and UK (p3) occupation and militarization of the Indian Ocean, the fact that the US, Saudi and Isreal were behind the Easter Carnage that was really and act of Economic and Maritime hybrid war against the people of Lanka to enable US to set up military bases in the US-ISIL Caliphate in the Eastern Province of Lanka, while India spirals into chaos with its Citizenship Bill that was drafted in Washington to the divide and rule the Indian Ocean and wage war against Iran and China.

      Where can I access Bond Scam Forensic Audit report?

      Do you think our American Patriotic Leader Gota and his Single handed Generals could prevent US-France and UK (p3) occupation and militarization of the Indian Ocean? Has Shavendra got any home grown strategies to counter evil plans of P3?

      I believe they have already neutralised Peaceful Rise of the Middle Kingdom (China)?

      Time has come to ask the United States to GET OUT of the Indian Ocean and Asia region. Enough is enough!

      The Iranian Foreign Minister is right – the USA has only brought terror and instability with its ISIL and trillion $$$ of weapons and weapon sales to its chosen dictators over decades to the Asian, African and Latin Amercian regions with their partners in crime – the EU’s UK and France that believe they have the right to loot the Global South.

        Shamil,

        This is the new neo-colonialism.

        Neocolonialism, neo-colonialism, or neo-imperialism is the practice of using capitalism, globalisation and cultural imperialism to influence a developing country instead of the previous colonial methods of direct military control (imperialism) or indirect political control (hegemony). Coined by the French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre in 1956, it was first used by Kwame Nkrumah in the context of African countries undergoing decolonisation in the 1960s. Neo-colonialism is also discussed in the works of Western thinkers such as Jean-Paul Sartre (Colonialism and Neo-colonialism, 1964)[3] and Noam Chomsky (The Washington Connection and Third World Fascism, 1979).

    The world citizen has disappeared when the National candidate project had a great disappointment. Now our neighbour has given up his motherland and has become one of those patriots in the neighbouring land. I say, national candidate project was too impatient. Do not be impatient this time. Just calm down. The #1 citizen is a non-career politician. So the career politicians, mostly ministers, think, it is still the same games and some are preparing to lot of dough if they have to leave. All others playing their usual games just before the election. I heard, there are a lot who are looking for chance to change the sides. It is amazing even Ranil had got that in his mind because he thinks his days are numbered. Some others say, I am a devout Buddhist, only wrong thing he did was he implemented what they told during his foreign trip.
    There is another speculation that Mahinda Rajapakse runs many things and he thinks he will be the president (who runs things) after the election and as he has done it earlier, he knows what he is doing.

    Vishnuuuuuu, Buddy I have under estimated you all this while. Salute to you Bro. What a hard hitting article. Though our majority morons may not get it still it is an eye opener. What I had been saying elsewhere numerous times this week. It is same old game plan from Lankan play book. This crap has been going on since our independence. (are we truly independent?????). As you rightly said it is as usual , Vendetta,giving promises left, right and center to get into power knowing none will be fulfilled, when crisis hits roof cause distractions, at the end blame the previous govt for added misery and then go back to public requesting to re-elect so that old promises can be fulfilled,in the mean time new promises have to wait, the public does not care about any of this, not even about them self, family or their future generations , they only are fixated on causing more adding misery to their neighbors. What a stinking garbage we have for a country.Anyone who is fortunate to step out and return will feel the stink right away. The ones living their have been conditioned to normalize it , so that they cant even sleep without it.

      Yes Vishnu you are spot on.
      There are 120 CD’s and (it seems) many of them also implicate politicians of the pre 2015 era. Shani probably -inter alia – also provides juicy information on abductors and abductees. Will all of these be made public? It is obvious that careful selection has been made of the ones for public consumption. Why is it that it is the opposition and not the present government that is asking for the CBSL forensic audit on bond scams to be tabled in parliament? Have they got cold feet? Red Herrings are marketed on a daily basis by the putrid mainstream media. Will all of the 6.9 fall for it? Or are many beginning to re align their thoughts and hopes?

    Please include scapegoating the West in my above comment as one more common excuses used by our politicians and masses. I do not think there was any significant impact from USA and definitely no one influenced SWRD in making Sinhala as official language. If at all Western education did not help in changing his skewed thinking.

      Chiv;

      You are absolutely correct; ” No one influenced SWRD in making Sinhala as official language”
      It was part and parcel of the Trojan horse; Sinhala Maha Sabah that SWRDB carefully planned, designed and built to gain power. Trojan Horse was needed for him to gain the votes of majority Sinhala Buddhists.

    Thank You Mr Gupta for reminding us that in spite of everything we hear, nothing really has changed. Regardless that we have had a change of Presidency and government, WE are still as a country neck-high in bribery, corruption, deception, hypocrisy, underhand, sleight-of-hand, and all the other black arts that our political milieu practice. We are still in the era of unuth-ekai-munuth-ekai. Nothing much has changed since SWRD fooled us with his pancha maha balvegeya trick. (More like a pacha maha balavegeya scam) Ever since then it has been a case of each new bunch that has manged to win at the regular (bunco booth) elections we conduct, take their chance to fuck us the people up well and truly and in the process salt away something for themselves from the national coffers. The politicians and their hangers-on get fat and WE the people mourn our bad fortune. In our warm, sun-bathed country it is just a case of every man for himself because gods that look over us don’t give a damn.

    Next few years will be filled with abhorrent dramas of this type – as nothing else they can be done by an unqualified US Gas Assistant ruling a country….

    Current “Dog and pony shows” are being staged by GoTa/Mara regime to divert the public attention away from the SOFA and MCC agreements that this regime is about to sign.

    ……..How hilarious is this regime????

    ……They duped gullible Sinhala Buddhists with the promise of tearing those agreement arguing that they will compromise national soveignity…

    ……And now they are surreptitiously getting prepared to sign them and betray the very gullible Sinhala Buddhists that voted GoTa/MaRa into power.

    The real losers of this game by two oligarchy teams are Buddhist Sinhala of this island. Unfortunately they are kept in dark and all the drama was to destroy the nation, people and culture. None of the Religious and political leadership are honest to Buddhism or this island.

    Both oligarchy teams represent western needs. The world system is set up to fulfill their needs. In sri Lanka, even before 1948, the Christian/Catholic church were busy converting. Because of that if you survey, the parliament has lot of Catholic/Christian politicians or their relatives. That made Bhikkus enter the parliament or watch what politicians work. 1978 constitution, 2015 Yahapalana govt, some deaths socialism – inclined politicians, LTTE all look the work of the same group. What ever it is, present JVP or the JVP plus NGO alliance is there to replace UNPATRIOTIC (anti-sinhala buddhist) UNP or their ALLIANCE OF UNF. UNF WAS HONEST IN THEIR concerns with not sinhala buddhists but the whole island at the expense of the sinhala buddhists. All other SLFP govts were of the same character even though they also worked for the western interests. People do not have forgotten those. Only thing is people are silent in front of the worst gang of anti-sinhala Buddhist establishment of Ranil, Mangala, CBK, Raajitha and many more. Pohottuwa is with a different flavour. but, they all know have revived their memories on how to rip the public and get rich. They think, they are back in the business. Their talks are very clear on that.
    The problem is the lack of politicians who are really concerned about the country, it’s culture, civilization and instead they preach what the west demands. 2019 election was to complete that and it failed miserably.
    I heard, Rajitha is saying he told who asked him to behave that way but did not tell every thing

    Those just under Seven Million out of that Twelve Million enjoy every bit of Gonja’s Digital APP.
    You are obviously not in that Lot.

    Although Gonja doesn’t realize , his APP has done a yeoman service to correct the wrongs of our Justice System. at the highest level.

    Just imagine if we had not suspended the death sentence in Lankawe?.
    Poor Duminda would have been just a stack of bones today for a crime which he never committed.

    And the CID Boss who ” fixed ” the Investigation would have been drawing his DIGP pay even today .
    Although the good Lady High Court Judge is still on a fat pension for the Services to the Justice System.

    BTW the ex UNP Minister has been a Jack of All trades.
    The latest release of the APP recordings is Mr Ranjan pleading with a young Srilankan TV/Movie personality for a Hand Job.

    I am not sure whether the ex Minister meant Handy Craft for the Yahapalana Government to introduce as a Village Based Economic Revival as a UNP promise at the last Prez Election?..

      There are well known people who had bought rice packets from Duminda Silva’s business place. They suddenly had become rich. They have caught Drug Parcels from them and it is true he involved in a gun fight. It is known that he with the dead person had a combined trade in which they sold drugs. It can be a fight for territory or something else.
      Now what supporting politicians says it is wrong to give him the death sentence. On the other hand if the other drug dealers have given the death sentence, then it is fair becuase DADA (DRUG) IS DEATH IN MUCH BELOVED SINGAPORE, MALAYSIA, SINGAPORE, AND SAUDI ARABIA.
      There is another question, if the govt knew that he was supporting some foreign organization and the politicians were part of it. then it is completely a different ball game.

    A very insightful article full of the reality that eludes most voters time and time again. These bastards of both major camps have been flipping this coin over and over and the public are the political football under their boots. There was a great opportunity to kick the players out and become the coach instead. Yet, people coalesced around the major players in typical moronic fashion. I can bet that only selected RR phone recordings will be revealed to the public; those that incriminate their political rivals, with the general elections in mind. Yes, its smoke and mirrors, dogs and ponies in this perpetual circus..!

    There is wild fire destroying acres of land, then we have tension in the Middle East, possibilities of disruption to crude oil supply and prices of essential items going up daily but Lankans are busy watching “bed room reality shows “. Think of the possibility of someone walking into your bed rooms and taking possession of your personal stuff and the immediately leaking it to media to run 24/7. If politicians can spend on this kind of crap every few days on each opposition member, a year will not be sufficient.When run out of material all they have to do is recycle, with a new theme. Come to think of it that is what MR did while in power, for a whole decade.

    The Game Of Deception

    It is played by both sides but to a larger extent by Gotha and his Cohorts. The Moto is

    Kill but deny it
    Steal but deny it

    But the game is over. There is no money to even continue with the Projects that have already been started. IMF wont give any more money to a Volaile Man ( Gotha) Western Countries have completely ignored his pleas . That is why Gotha was going to travel to Beiging with a ” Pichai Pathiram” . India sensing Sri Lanka will become even more dependant on China to her detriment forced him to cancel the trip and told him to learn to live within his means. Sri Lanka has to pay back 2 Trillion shortly but there is no money. Gotha the Lame Duck President cant lay any eggs.

    I see Lankan politicians as in a “puppet show” (the ancient art is slowly dying, but not the politicians ) . There is one or two showmen and rest are just puppets wrapped around their fingers and act as instructed. The difference is the audience, (public) , who not only enjoy the show , but believe it as “the reality.”

Senanayakas, Bandas, JR/RW, Rajapaksas and future to continue with siblings , off springs and relatives. Even mafias do not hold such cult and dynasties , like these crooks.
