We Must Stand United As Patriots To Defend President Mahinda Rajapaksa

Will of the people is the Grund norm of the Constitution; In defence of 18th Amendment to the Constitution

Stability of Government is a sine qua non for development and rapid economic progress. A classic example is Singapore. Singapore has been successful due to political stability. Lee Kuan Yew served as Prime Minister of Singapore from 1959 to 1990.

In 1783, the Treaty of Paris left the United States independent and at peace, but with an unsettled governmental structure. The Second Continental Congress had drawn up the Articles of Confederation in 1777, describing a permanent confederation, but granting to the Congress – the only federal institution – little power to finance itself or to ensure that its resolutions were enforced. In part, this reflected the anti-monarchy view of the Revolutionary period and the new American system was explicitly designed to prevent the rise of an American tyrant.

However, during the economic depression due to the collapse of the continental dollar following the American Revolution, the viability of the American Government was threatened by political unrest in several states, efforts by debtors to use popular government to erase their debts and the apparent inability of the Continental Congress to redeem the public obligations incurred during the war.

Mahinda Education ColombotelegraphThe Congress also appeared unable to become a forum for productive cooperation among the States encouraging commerce and economic development. In response, the Philadelphia Convention was convened, ostensibly to devise amendments to the Articles of Confederation, but which instead began to draft a new system of government that would include greater executive power while retaining the checks and balances thought to be essential restraints on any imperial tendency in the office of the President.

The United States of America – Founding Fathers

Individuals who presided over the Continental Congress during the Revolutionary period and under the Articles of Confederation had the title ‘President of the United States in Congress Assembled’, often shortened to ‘President of the United States’. However, the office had little distinct executive power.

With the 1788 ratification of the Constitution, a separate executive branch was created, headed by the ‘President of the United States’. This new Chief Executive role no longer bore the duties of presiding over Congress in a supervisory role, but the title ‘President’ was carried over nevertheless.

This title was a major understatement of the actual role empowered to the office by the Constitution and this choice of words can be seen as a deliberate effort by the Founding Fathers to prevent the Head of State position from evolving toward becoming a monarchical position, with the accompanying potential for abuse of such power.

Executive privilege gives a President the ability to withhold information from Congress and federal courts in matters of national security. George Washington first claimed privilege when Congress requested to see Chief Justice John Jay’s notes from an unpopular treaty negotiation with Great Britain. While not enshrined in the Constitution, or any other law, Washington’s action created the precedent for the privilege.

When Richard Nixon tried to use executive privilege as a reason for not turning over subpoenaed evidence to Congress during the Watergate scandal, the Supreme Court ruled in United States v. Nixon, 418 U.S. 683 (1974), that executive privilege did not apply in cases where a President was attempting to avoid criminal prosecution. When President Bill Clinton attempted to use executive privilege regarding the Lewinsky scandal, the Supreme Court ruled in Clinton v. Jones, 520 US 681 (1997), that the privilege also could not be used in civil suits. These cases established the legal precedent that executive privilege is valid although the exact extent of the privilege has yet to be clearly defined.

Eligible person

In accordance to the Twenty-second Amendment, no eligible person can be elected President more than twice. The Twenty-second Amendment also specifies that if any eligible person who serves as President or acting President for more than two years of a term for which some other eligible person was elected President, the former can only be elected President once. Scholars disagree whether anyone no longer eligible to be elected President could be elected vice president, pursuant to the qualifications set out under the Twelfth Amendment.

Franklin D Roosevelt was elected to four terms before the adoption of the Twenty-second Amendment. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (January 30, 1882 – April 12, 1945), commonly known by his initials FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States. A Democrat, he was elected four times and served from March 1933 to his death in April 1945. He was a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic depression and total war. A dominant leader of the Democratic Party, he built a New Deal Coalition that realigned American politics after 1932, as his New Deal domestic policies defined American liberalism for the middle third of the 20th century.

The term of office for President and Vice President is four years. George Washington, the first President, set an unofficial precedent of serving only two terms, which subsequent presidents followed until 1940.

Before Franklin D. Roosevelt, attempts at a third term were encouraged by supporters of Ulysses S. Grant and Theodore Roosevelt; neither of these attempts succeeded. In 1940, Franklin Roosevelt declined to seek a third term, but allowed his political party to ‘draft’ him as their Presidential candidate and was subsequently elected to a third term. In 1941, the US became involved in World War II, which later led voters to elect Roosevelt to a fourth term in 1944.

After the war, and in response to Roosevelt’s shattering of precedent, the Twenty-second Amendment was adopted. The amendment bars anyone from being elected President more than twice, or once if that person served more than half of another President’s term. Harry S. Truman, who was President when the amendment was adopted, and so by the amendment’s provisions exempt from its limitation, also briefly sought a third (a second full) term before withdrawing from the 1952 election.

Since the amendment’s adoption, four Presidents have served two full terms: Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Jimmy Carter and George H. W. Bush sought a second term, but were defeated.

Richard Nixon was elected to a second term, but resigned before completing it. Lyndon B. Johnson was the only President under the amendment to be eligible to serve more than two terms in total, having served for only fourteen months following John F. Kennedy’s assassination. However, Johnson withdrew from the 1968 Democratic Primary, surprising many Americans by stating, “I shall not seek and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President.” Gerald Ford sought a full term, after serving out the last two years and five months of Nixon’s second term, but was not elected.

Singapore

Singapore is a classic example of economic and democratic success by political stability. Singapore has been successful due to political stability .Lee Kuan Yew served as Prime Minister of Singapore from 1959 to 1990.

Sri Lanka

An unusual position has arisen in Sri Lanka where more opposition members have extended their support to President Mahinda Rajapaksa. The people from the West, South, North and the East have repeatedly acknowledged the leadership of this remarkable President who has the charisma to convince even his strongest opponents.

Towards political stability, economic growth

The 18th Amendment to the Constitution is a brilliant move for political stability. Even in Singapore, there were criticisms by disgruntled politicians about Lee. But time has proved that it was effective having the same Leader over a period of time. President Mahinda Rajapaksa is the only leader in Sri Lanka at this moment who could direct the Nation towards economic prosperity and development.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa

Through the experience he gained through many political tidal waves and his survival to become the Leader of the Nation.He thinks very hard before he makes decisions, once made he will justify his cause with his skills of advocacy which has won over his opponents.

Never in the political history of any country has so many Opposition members joined and supported the President whom they once opposed.

Amidst the turbulent waves of politics and the intricacies of conspiracies by vested interests President Mahinda Rajapaksa was re-elected as the President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka for a second term. The Victor is President Mahinda Rajapaksa.He is justified to seek a third term by virtue of the 18th amendment to the Constitution.

The victory was inevitable due to the patriotic deeds of the President and the victorious are the Nation as a whole.

Saviour of the Nation

Thousands of men, women and children driven from their lands have returned home. The demands of an outraged community have been met. We have achieved a victory for a safer world, for our democratic values and for a stronger Sri Lanka.

We fought and liberated the people held in hostage, what we achieved and what we have to do now to advance the peace and together with the people, forge a future of freedom, progress and harmony. This can be done only under the leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The terrorists were the cause for men of all ages separated from their loved ones killed and forced to join the terrorists, children made to watch their parents die; a whole people forced to abandon in hours communities their families had spent generations building.

Liberation of a Nation

When our diplomatic efforts to avert this horror with the LTTE were rebuffed, and the violence mounted, the President took affirmative action. Now the people are free, the roads that were closed for years have opened, the people have been liberated.

The schools have been re-opened, they have freedom to shape their destiny. No more nights of hiding in bunker cellars, wondering if the next day will bring death or deliverance.

Unitary State

Now, all communities must join hands in unity and assist President Mahinda Rajapaksa to continue the development work.Finally, we have averted the wider war this conflict might well have sparked. Now, we’re entering a new phase – building that peace – and there are formidable challenges, the foremost among them is the stability of leadership and the Government.

Development

We must build and develop our country. For that to happen, the European Union must plan for tomorrow, not just today.

Our friends the United States, China, India and the United Kingdom must assist us in our endeavour. They must provide most of the resources for this effort, but it is in Sri Lanka’s interest to do our part as well.

We must pave a path to a prosperous shared future, a unifying magnet more powerful than the pull of hatred and destruction that has threatened to tear us apart.

Tolerance and freedom

President Mahinda Rajapaksa represents tolerance and freedom, not repression and terror. As such every individual or group which transgresses these ideals should be dealt with by the Laws of the land.

President and The Nation

We have sent a message of determination and hope to the entire world. Think of all the millions of innocent people who died in this bloody century because democracies reacted too late to evil and aggression. Because of our resolve, the past is gone not with helpless indignation, but with a hopeful affirmation of human dignity and human rights for the 2010.

In a world too divided by fear among people of different racial, ethnic and religious groups, we have given confidence to the friends of freedom and pause to those who would exploit human difference for inhuman purposes.

Sri Lanka still faces great challenges in this world, but we look forward to meeting them.

We must stand united as Patriots of Sri Lanka to support and defend President Mahinda Rajapaksa and support the 18th Amendment to the Constitution.

        17 out of a cabinet of 22 members of Narendra Modi’s cabinet have declared their assets. Has Mahinda Rajapaksa and his family members who are in the politics family business declared their assets?

        If Jarpassa wants to contest another Presidential election he and his family MUST be required to declare all their assets. As it is the Jarapassa family is looting Lanka with the crook Nivard Cabraal at the Central Bank.

        India with a billion people has 22 cabinet members but tiny Lanka with a mere 21 million has more than 50 clowns in a cabinet of corrupt morons. The corrupt Minister of Health, Sirisena is paid by multinational Pharmaceuticals to NOT pass the national drugs policy bill.
        This is a Miracle of Modyas indeed! Where is the opposition and who should educate the Sinhala Modayas and tell them to ask Mahinda Jarpassa and his corrupt family to declare their assets before he runs for the Presidency again?

      This mutt Rajratnam is comparing Mahinda with Lee kuan. Lee Kuan is a man who really loved his country. He didn’t have any manias like Nepotism, Money greediness etc. Mahinda from the very beginning his target is to bring the whole family & relations to high posts, otherwise how can a unqualified person like Basil be a Economic Development Minister? Infact, he too has a inferior complex (like Premadasa), doesn’t much in favour of educated people, that’s why he appointed so many uneducated people as Ambassadors like H R Piyasiri, Banet Corray, A S P Liayanage etc, and so many unqualified Ministers like Mervin Silva, Rohitha (chain)etc, also Monitors like Kudu Dumiya & Sajin Vass etc. In short I feel that MR has misused his Office.MR is not all comparable to Kuan. By doing so I would say Rajaratnam has written this article with something behind to get a favoration from MR. Any right thinking person will not agree with.

      Dr. Telli C Rajaratnam,

      Why should one defend the Rajapaksa? Why are you a shill? Don’t you have ethics?

      Whatever opposition candidate comes forward, there need to be exposure of MaRa corruption and nepotism. There is a dire need for a Common Sense Pamphlet, like what Thomas Paine did in 1776 for the American revolution, exposing King George III.

      What can writers and other do? Expose.. Expose and Expose the Mara regime, unless they are shills like you ,and many others.

      The current perception is that Rajapaksa Hegemony has taken over the UPFA/SLFP and people do not want dynasties.

      What can the writers do? Expose. what can the people do? Vote against MaRa and the criminal gang.

      Stop being a shill and try to become a man of common sense.

      Say, Because I have Common Sense, I will not vote for Mr. Rajapaksa and their criminal cronies for a continuation of a Family Dynasty, and say that Sri Lanka is a Republic.

      Rajapaksa had the opportunity. The power corrupted them. The People are sick of them. They even used Buddhism towards their ends. Even Sinhala Buddhists are fed up them, and they are showing their true colors.

      Produce a Commons sense Pamphlet for Sri Lanka and say why it is in the best interest of the people of Sri Lanka to remove the King, aka Rajapaksa Dynasty from power and let the Republic be a Republic and Not a dynasty. This Pamphlet, in Sinhala, Tamil and English, need to be sent to each and every Sri Lankan Citizen, just like Thomas Paine’s Common Sense pamphlet.

      An Anonymous Author like Thomas Paine is needed with a Common Sense Pamphlet to expose the King, King George, the Rajapaksa Clan. Read, the Common Sense Pamphlet , by Thomas Paine, that inspired the American Revolution along with the other events. Common Sense (pamphlet)

    Dr. Telli C Rajaratnam wrote in CT, on February 26, 2014:
    Our Country, Our President, Our Armed Forces, Our Nation And My Defence!

    https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/our-country-our-president-our-armed-forces-our-nation-and-my-defence/

    Can anyone confirm if this despicable person’s father is a close relative of Dr. Neelan Tiruchelvam? I am aware that Dr. Neelan wrote an article praising the senior Mr. Rajaratnam.

    Can a fellow CT reader, please let us know, if Mahinda Rajapaksa is the suspected mastermind behind the murder in Beliatta, of SLFP Pradesheeya Sabha councillor A.M.K. Gunaratne?

    I heard from a friend that President Percy Mahinda is also the suspected mastermind behind the killings of Lalith Weerasinghe, Prageeth eknaligoda and Lasantha Wickrematunga. (Gota may have had a bigger role in Lasantha’s murder).

    I am astonished beyond words, that event though Mr.Telli C Rajaratnam has a Ph.D in law, he is prostituting himself by spouting such propaganda, hoping that Percy Mahinda will be elected for a 3rd term as President.

    So strange that sufficient numbers of Sinhala Buddhist voters, believe the propaganda of the Rajapaksa family – Percy will probably be elected president for the 3rd time.

    May be around 25% of SL Tamils believed most of the propaganda generated by the LTTE, about both Velupillai Prabhakaran and the LTTE organisation. Only now do some of these SL Tamils realise that VP was a megalomaniac who murdered thousands, including his own LTTE comrades and co-founders.

    Isn’t Dr. Telli C Rajaratnam an associate of the other Tamil terrorist, Douglas Devananda?

    4. Freedom to demand pure drinking water and be killed by MARA’s forces.
    5. Freedom to criticise the Government and be killed in broad day light.
    6. Freedom to criticise any actions of the MARA Govt and be trailed day and night.
    7. Freedom to incite communal violence against helpless minorities.

    I think the author is trying to compare the stability of regime in Singapore and its consequent economic development and make a case of Sri Lanka.

    It is true that in Singapore too its then leaders used strong arm tactics against the opposition, even throwing some of them to prison without trial for nearly 30 years. (No known secret murders.) However, its founding leader leads a simple private life. The roof in his house too needing attention. However, in contrast, the Carlton has become a brand name, from a luxury mansion in down south to television stations to pre schools, “Lamborghini” races etc.

    MR or MARA as some of your commentators wish to name him, though he lead the team to eradicate a 30 year terrorism, that card alone will not always buy him the required votes for ever. He today is unable to solve some of the problems, mainly arising out of injustice, to many.

    It is understood that the pro PA postal votes in the UVA is less than 50%. It is surmised among the powers that may be that many of them are teachers. Hence a big raise in Teacher’s salaries are in the offing. Will this kind of money throwing alone help the problem?

    I think Telli has read the book “the tipping point”. A society reach a certain stability due to a multitude of factors. Some are good and some bad.

    Sri Lanka is also in a similar equilibrium thanks to MR. Radical change will only unbalance the current stability. This will not be good for anyone.

    “He thinks very hard before he makes decisions, once made he will justify his cause with his skills of advocacy which has won over his opponents”

    Yes that is true. When “Gutukaa Nonis” complained and resigned over Baggage Boy’s assault, our Hero, King Mahinda was thinking very hard and use his skills to made the correct decision and that was to accept “Gutikaa Nonis’s” Resignation.

    Also he was thinking very hard before he ordered to kill more than 40,000 Tamil Civilians and Millions of other Crimes.

    I like the Patriotic call from a paid clown. What you say doesnt matter any more because the Hambanthotta CRIMINALs destiniy is not decided from within but from outside. No amount of money and no doubt some of it has gone into your purse which is obvious from your smile will save Mahintha. I can say from you facial expression that you have been laughing all the way to the BANK.
    But sadly your pay master will be screaming all the way to his Docks.

    In 1956 Sri Lanka was ahead of Singapore and was only second to Japan out of whole Asia. But now Sri Lanka is at the bottom five in Asian economies, culture and human rights.

    Not a single medal was won at this year’s Asian Games other than for Cricket which is been played by only Five counties in Asia and also which was introduced only at last Asian games. Two of our Athletes have run away from the camp looking for Jobs in South Korea while on tour. This is the first time it happened in Sri Lanka’s history. Maharaja is fixing new cabins to sleep over while on travel in his new Air Bus Jumbo Jet. His baggage handler crook cum thug Sajin Vass Gunawardena is one of the richest men in Asia.

    Stop fooling yourselves. There is no comparison between the least educated Rajapaksa regime, and educated Singapore’s People Action Party.

    It appears that Telli Rajaratnam has got a “free laptop” from the President. Educated idiots like Telli is the reason Sri Lanka has gone to DOGS.

    Who the hell is this nincompoop bugger Telli C Rajaratnam washing the stinking linen of Madamoolana roguish despot and his bandwagon of plunderers of the national wealth? Has anyone known this despot’s ball sucking vassal before?

    “The United States of America – Founding Fathers, Franklin D Roosevelt, Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew, President Mahinda Rajapaks, Saviour of the Nation, Liberation of a Nation, Unitary State, Development, Tolerance and freedom, President and The Nation……..”

    What a concoct of achcharu is this man talking of? Surely the bugger has seriously digged into the Web and found some stuff to be dangled to claim his dollars from the autocrat. This shameless and imbecilic shill is vomiting the “positives” of 18A while the lunatic does not even understand 18A has violated and usurped the very fundamental rights of this pathetic matimola. No way an unprincipled, uneducated rascal despotic family like Rajapakshas can use this EP position in any healthy, reasonable, democratic, constructive and human friendly way. This uneducated rascal MARA is totting it like the monkey that got hold of razor knife. The fool is drunk with power. There is no protection or rights for the people at all. The despot is devouring the country like a cancer. It is in the best interest of the country and its people the sooner the despot is liquidated en masse with EP. A country does not need such steam rolling executive power to confer upon its people the fruits of democracy, development and human rights. Take for example India. For more than 1 billion of people it has only 22 ministers whereas for only 20 million we have more than 50! India jails Jayalalitha for robbing but not a hint is revealed about those who plunder billions of public money here in Sri Lanka where an Executive Presidency which makes even the US President a dwarf exists. What more power does this hitherto unheard of savior of country is crying about?

    These are all conspirators against the people of this country. This country is full of conspiracies. We sow how former CJ SN Silva was uttering that MR cannot run for the 3rd time. This is a conspiracy. Now the JVP has joined him playing their part in the conspiracy. They say since running 3rd time by the incumbent is illegal they would boycott the election! What a ruse! And S Fonseka too has joined the party now! This is exactly what V Pirabaharan did to this country. He obtained bribes from MR and prevented Tamils from voting. RW was deprived the opportunity to solve the problems and develop the country. This time MARA has done it again. So far the South has seen 3 Velu Pillaias-BBS, JVP and SF! All have been bribed by MARA. They are using the cover of “President can’t thrice” escape to give legitimacy and protection to their abhorrent act of neglecting their duty to defeat MR by supporting a CC! They want to fish in the troubled waters. The calculation of JVP is to let RW run alone and get defeated. Thereafter JVP think the suffering people will one day choose JVP as their ultimate saviors!

    Is Dr Rajaratnam representing the Dalit community, who sacrificed their most valuable asset . their kids, as Child Soldiers, Black Cats, Suicide Bombers and Foot Soldiers and expressing their feeling of how peacefully these Dalits are going about their lives post Nanthikadal ,to look after what remains and being able to find a job to feed and look after them….

      Sumanasekera,

      For your information, this author is also from the Jaffna Vellala stock and is an indomitable defender of Mahinda Rajapaksa just like the Sri Lankan Tamil cabinet minister Douglas Devananda who is also from the Vellala caste.

      Telli C Rajaratnam also published a Book titled “The Dawn of Sri Lanka, The Miracle of Asia -Selected Essays on the Patriotic Legacy of President Mahinda Rajapaksa”

      He is the son of late Justice Tellipalai W. Rajaratnam who was a leading Sri Lankan Tamil lawyer, judge and politician.

        V.B.

        Didn’t ex LTTE proxy Sambandan say his TNA represents all Inhabitant Vellalas?.

        That is why I thought these ” dissidents” are like us Dalits, because Mano is still awaiting full membership or even associate tag in the TNA.

        My apologies to Mr Rajaratnam

        He seems to be from the thorough bred stock , going by your information.

        The good news is there are still sane Vellalas who think about Dalits’ standard of living and not only their Human Rights and a separate Homeland for them run by the Vellalas.

        Cheers VB..
