What Can Nandasena Learn From Donald’s Demise?

By Kumar David

Prof. Kuma David

He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts

And put down the mighty from their seats. (Luke 1:51-52)

Madmen have been Emperors, Kings and Presidents; Caligula, George III and Idi Amin who allegedly chopped up his Chief Justice Kabimu Kiwanuka, preserved body parts in a fridge and ate them at leisure. And of course we had our own Pissu Sira though not as crazy as these. Jan 6 in Washington DC is surprising not as a mentally deranged and debauched villain elected to the US presidency but that 138 lawmakers (Congress-persons and Senators) lied about the integrity US election administrators and knowingly fibbed of cheating during counting.

Despite being laughed out of the Courts and the Supreme Court these law-makers encouraged an attack on the Capitol. This is like Gota sending rioting mobs to attack Parliament in Kotte when debating a resolution criticising him. See:Nandasena Issues Chilling Warning to Opposition: “I Killed Prabhakaran Like a dog” – Colombo Telegraph 10 Jan. A threat to MP Harin Fernando. Two-thirds 2/3 of our parliamentarians are lick-spittle stooges so they have remained mute. In the US calls for violence have intensified ahead of Inauguration Day (20 Jan) and the chatter from emboldened far-right extremists portends that violence will worsen.

It will take about a year for the incoming Biden Administration to restore normalcy since that depends on addressing the livelihood conditions of the poorer-half of society. This is the only way of castrating the Trump Base by cutting the existential ground under its feet. But in foreign policy except in the main theatres of the Middle East and Pacific we will see little change for now. It is no use pretending that small, penniless countries can be anything but whores of a big power. Though small, but not economically fragile and played its cards smartly like Ireland, Taiwan or New Zealand there is space for lateral movement, but Lanka is not so fortunate. The Gota regime has surrendered its maidenhead to Beijing while Sajith wants to be Delhi-Washington’s call-girl. Gota’s deflowering is explicit; the Financial Times (Sri Lanka) reported a New Year’s message by Chinese Ambassador Qi Zhenhong as follows:-

“China will promote the alignment of the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ (BRI) with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s ‘Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour’ manifesto to promote economic and social engagement between the two countries the Ambassador said. Guided by the consensus reached by our leaders, we join hands to respond to the challenging international and regional situation and promote alignment of the Belt and Road Initiative with ‘Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour”.

The die has been cast and Gota is being sucked into Beijing’s geopolitical whore-sphere. One might say he had no other option; the regime is bankrupt, foreign debt is unserviceable and Ratings Agencies are dragging Sri Lanka down – the rupee may decline to 225 to the $ by years end. Gota’s Army-Silva militarised strategy to go after covid with guns blazing is turning into a protracted disaster.

Why Sajith has decided to swing in the opposite direction is not clear. Colombo Telegraph on Jan 7 says “Sajith Slaps Voters, Activists In The Face: Appoints Rajapaksa Ideologue Dayan J As International Relations Advisor”. It is significant because, of recent, Dayan Jayatilleka has gone out on a anti-Beijing limb. The point is not whether this is good or bad, but that unless Sajith is a gross simpleton – which commentators say he may well be – it denotes a sharp parting of the ways between the Gota regime and the Premadasa Front on international whoring. The SJB and not the UNP will emerge as Colombo’s principal Delhi-Washington mouthpiece and Gota and Sajith will become Agency Houses.

It is against this background that Gota’s move to confront Tamil students at Jaffna University is difficult to fathom. The Mullivaikal monument dedicated to tens of thousands of Tamils killed by the state during the war was of course an unauthorised structure on campus grounds as are tens of thousands of Buddha statues under Bo trees at every street corner are. The wisest thing is to ignore it as done for many years before Gota’s erection instead demolishing it in the stealth of the night, an act of flagrant chauvinism by a military state. University Vice-Chancellor S. Srisatkunarajah said he was instructed by the highest authorities: “Defence, Intelligence and Education Ministry. I am a civilian carrying out an administrative responsibility. My decisions are my personal likes and dislikes, “the brainless stooge told The Hindu. The VC is servile as any Trump stooge but much more serious is that Gota has decided to show the Tamils that he is prepared to shoot them down like dogs in the street, a fate that he has promised Harin Fernando!

    Any educated leader could learn it, but Nandasena Rajapakse would not because his is only appropriate to ” thug or hang man or the like positions”. Deception and media mafia misled people. Any third world countries could easily get caught by even easy tricks, when looking at the manner how republicans were misled in the states by Trump. Dr Merkel is right from the very first day Trump s election – she was in the view, Trump would not be a good president.
    :
    We warned srilanken people again and again, that Nandasena is a psychopath. And there are enough evidence to prove that the man is a high criminal. As of today, all is evident – his own speech cleared the doubts.
    Definition of psychopath (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/psychopath)
    : a mentally unstable person/he proved it many a times sofar.
    especially : a person having an egocentric and antisocial personality marked by a lack of remorse for one’s actions, an absence of empathy for others, and often criminal tendencies

    Today what happened to srilanka is – Gotabaya has let his former criminals to ruin srilanka
    .
    WHO IS UDAYANGA WEERATHUNGA and why was INTERPOLE after him until GOTA s govt came to power ? He together with GOTA was behind that huge loss.
    Gota s tongue is tied before GONPART of Udayanga and his brother BASIL today.

      Lella,

      Trump lost because he messed with China which ruined the US economy (in the short term). China targeted import restrictions on goods produced in US marginal states. It was a political attack. China will do the same to None-the-sena for giving away East port terminal to Endia. But None-the-sena will use military power to turn the election outcome in his favour (Trump could not).

      If Trump attacked China beating China, he would have won. If Trump misused the military to stop counting votes he would have won. He tried both but US law stopped him. SL law does NOT stop the president from doing both. None-the-sena will kill some Tamils and Muslims and say they planned terrorist attacks just before the election. People will vote with their feet. Northern voters will fear to go out to vote.

      None-the-sena might succeed where Trump failed. Sorry Lanka is not USA.

        Gatam,
        .
        Open you eyes please, from the day one – people in Europe thought ” Trump has no sure instict to politics”.
        .
        So not just mess up with China, but it was obvious to anyone with some sanity the kind of men WOULD not stay long in any country where law and order functions well.
        :
        Now with no chance to return, very likely to fall deeper, Trumps rhetorics sound milder.
        :
        In Srilanka we would not have the chance to see it, because BOTH people and politicians dont see it right. They cant differentiate the right from wrongs.
        :
        And I dont see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding any progress. This I think common to many that look at srialnka being out of the country.

    … What Can Nandasena Learn From Donald’s Demise?
    .
    I am yet to read the article. I will.
    But, before that, let me quickly tell you what goes thru my mind right now.
    .
    Comparing the two is a natural urge; One is a miniature of the other. You wouldn’t go wrong if you choose one over the other for the miniature!
    .
    Both are masters of their own destiny. Both are well known. Donald universally; Gota nationally.
    I am at a loss to decide who is more arrogant; Stubbornness, gives the same headache!
    Wealth-wise, Gota is far more wealthy than Donald, nationally, – Believe it.
    Donald worked hard for his wealth; Gota stole from KP. – Accept it.
    .
    The demise of Gota will have no national impact; Donald? US won’t care.

    Our politicians don’t care a cent how history going to judge them. By then they have gone and their children and their grand kids have become filthy rich and leading a much better life than their fellow countrymen/women.
    Our so called ruling elite will go on forever the way they are till we the people don’t change.
    First of all only a handful of us read articles like this and hear good speeches made by some educationists.
    The tools of these politicians are simple language that reach the wider population
    They are…
    Hora, Wanda Pethi (Sterilization Pills)Wanda Koththu, Steralisation Bra, Muslim/Tamil Terrorists Population overgrowth of minorities.
    Time to time these vocabularies change.
    They are Sinhala in 24 hours, Pada Yaathra, Rice from Moon, Ata Atta
    Then they identify some thugs with ambitions and groom them.
    The latest trend is some corrupt clergy with promises of luxury life and foreign trips.
    How to stop this?
    Educating the folks at grassroot level. – The JVP is doing this but no success.

    When a person who sang songs at Jambugasmulla suddenly becomes the Royal physician and this person is given government vehicles and security escorts while his gully have potentially killed two people including a doctor and a child where no investigation what so ever has been done regarding these deaths and where this same man recommended dumping clay pots of water in rivers and dams to rid the country of Covid and when exposing these things gets Ranjan Ramanayake sent to prison there is nothing left to talk about. Murders like Pillayan let loose while Ranjan gets Four years hard labor. As for Sajith and what he talks about there is no point. God father got the goods on the Premadasa family. Make too much noise and one family member could end up with Four year hard labor as well. As more and more decent people flee this country in disgust only the vermin will remain praising the Chinamen for a few scraps.

    In the early seventies Richard Nixon established the EPA, expanded the social safety net and enacted many progressive policies. Nixon was a Republican. Several millionaires were horrified by these policies and set the ground work to push back. This includes the Koch brothers. What began then eventually pulled the republican party so far right that it would have made Adolf Hitler proud. The Democratic party too ended up being pushed more and more to the right and toady occupies the space where the Republican were back in the seventies. In 2016 the broke and disorganized campeign of Trump got a shot in the arm by another shadowy ultra right wing millionaire Richard Mercer. Trump ran a cult of fascist which succeeded in ripping the USA and tearing it down. In this cult belong cult members from the evangelical christian movement, the Far right Catholics such as the Mercers. Our Appachchi also went after the far right clergy they became ape Hamuduruwane to him. Temples belonging to this right wing cult became appachchi’s favourite venue to meet and speak. We are now a neo fascist dictatorship. Unfortunatelty we are not the USA. Its institutions managed to withstand the assault. Our institutions lie decimated.

    If Mullivaikal monument was dedicated to tens of thousands of Tamils killed by the state during the war why they did not erect a monument dedicated to tens of thousands Tamils killed by LTTE during their terrorist campaign carried out over a period of three decades. More Tamils have been killed by LTTE than by Armed Forces. Tamils who died during the military operation against LTTE were collateral damage while the killings done by LTTE were deliberate. For example, at Nandikadal Tamils used by LTTE as human shield died during crossfire but Tamils who tried to escape to surrender to Army were deliberately shot and killed by LTTE. Isn’t it unfair to forget these people?

    The successive Sinhala politicians have not learnt anything from last 70 years of race riots; war; intercede killing in fact on the contrary they have mastered the art of stroking racial hatred and benefitting from that.

    The successive Sinhala politicians have no interest at all in uniting 21million people and to progress the country.

    If there was a mass scale invasion of the parliament at Jeyawardene pura the leader of the day would have sent STF in machine gun every one and throw the bodies in the surrounding lake and create another Nandhi Kadal

      Rajash,
      Keep on bashing Sinhala politicians for the blunders committed by racist separatist Malabar Vellala Demala politicians who are descendants of Malabar slaves brought to Yapanaya by Portuguese and became citizens of Sinhale by naturalization in creating the conflict between Sinhalayo who are the Native people in Sinhale and Demala people who came from Hindusthan and settled down in this country for their political survival.

      Please tell your racist separatist Malabar Vellala Demala politicians to learn from the blunders committed since 1948 and allow Demala people to live with Sinhalayo peacefully.

    What Can Nandasena Learn From Donald’s Demise?
    .
    Hello Mr. Nandasena:
    You claimed you will be a better leader who can make the country great again because you were “coming from a non-political background,” and deployed racist rhetoric and conspiracy theories to get elected. Your strategy to win votes by exploiting people’s fears and insecurities worked and you won. But the country became sharply polarized. Even after assuming office you continued with your divisive politics of hate and resentment and fake news – instead of unifying the people by strengthening democracy. As a matter of fact, you did just the opposite. You exercised your power like an autocrat and undermined the legislature and the judiciary. You sabotaged justice by freeing convicted criminals who were your lackeys. You have made a mockery of democracy in order to please your alt right power base. Now you’re abandoning even basic decency and speaking like a street thug. Now Mr. Nandasena, I’m pretty sure you realize this is your story as well as Mr. Trump’s. No difference at all. So unless you learn a lesson from Mr. Trump, you can bet your end also will be the same. You’ll turn increasingly into a bully and a buffoon and your presidency will end in utter disaster and humiliation.

      P.S.
      News is just out that Mr. Trump has been impeached for the second time – a first in US history. Many analysts are of the view that this infamy fell on him because of his penchant for telling lies. Please learn this lesson. Otherwise mothers in Sri Lanka are going to say even after 100 years: “Puthe, Boru Kiyanne Epa, Nathan Umbattath Wenne Ara Trumpa Wage.”

    President Nandasena will not learn anything from Donald Trump. I think Donald Trump learned violent from former Srilankan defence secretary. United Nations, the world and Sinhala masses now got a free evidence from the the same person who was responsible for war crimes, human rights violations and genocide of Tamils. Now Sinhala masses should know who betrayed poor Sinhala soldiers? Not only they killed over 30000 Sinhala soldiers in an unwanted war but now over 200000 Sinhala soldiers are going to be branded as war criminals.
    It is time to understand that this country need peace, harmony, unity, rule of law and justice to all. Don’t allow to cheat you with fake patriotism.

    Dear David

    Thank you.

    Would it be more appropriate one asks what can US learn from the exact behaviour of the FP/TULF/TC since 1970 losses in Jaffna. Specially with the historical American Mission background in Jaffna?? Your references should be all about the cold wars/misinformations and the regime changing manuals is it not??

    When someone make a mockery of a democracy and the will of the people and manipulate their children to do the dirty on them then we have already made some paradigm changes to all our discussions.

    This has only one destination for the US that is to end up like a Banana republic…..when the citizens of that republic may resort to the current predicament (electing the current Excellency President and the Hon PM) as a result is what will happen that is a consequence rather a Cause and Effect in any democracy.

    After this journey one need to ask what is the issue now with the democracy (be it in Sri Lanka or US) vs what was then in 1970 is where all the answers lie is it not??

    Prof David is once again unfairly personally abusive of individuals.
    Calling someone a brainless stooge for a thoughtless act under pressure is indecent.
    *
    I remember in 1971, shortly after the JVP insurrection failed, several young academics shaved their beards to avoid being seen as rebels by the police and getting picked up. There was a bearded academic who mocked those who shaved their beards as cowards. One academic who had shaven his beard responded: “If I have a 5-Sri car and friends in the Police, I too will have kept my beard.” That put an end to the claim of bravery.
    We need to be sensitive to the specific conditions under which people work. To question the wisdom of an act or the motive is one thing but to resort to nasty name calling is quite another.
    *
    Prof David also talks about whoring.
    I wonder if he would call what the leader of the LSSP did in 1964 to join the government as minister, betraying the United Left Front and the 21 Demands of the the grand alliance of trade unions.
    Whatever it was, if it was not whoring, went on until 1975 to result in utter humiliation in 1977 for the LSSP. (The CP salvaged some self-respect after Sarath Muththetuwegama secured a seat, although after an election petition.

    Gota might be thinking about getting both the army and rioters on his side in 2024 when he loses the election!

    Don’t forget in 2015 he sent in the army to vote counting centres and halted counting! Then Mahinda told him to withdraw and accepted defeat and moved out. So we know the beast. He will not easily give up power.

        Because this time postal votes meant very many disenfranchised potential voters who never voted before were all systematically got registered and requested postal vote which was less stringently allowed by states passing new legislations to accommodate pandemic scenario.

        Hence the turn out this time was not the normal 50% but 70%+++ a healthy amount for any Nation.

        Democrats were well prepaired to the tactics that will be applied later by Trump with voter fraud accusations too and the gullible supporters who will be so easily manipulated by the spin.

        In 2016 frustrated Democrats either voted for Trump or did not vote at all because of Mrs C……the party not electing Berni?? a very popular progressive candidate.

    rump is expected to be impeached by the House in Congress, and he will be the ONLY US president to be impeached twice. Instead of uniting the country HE DIVIDED IT. He made racist speeches, and sided with white supremacists. He enabled the white supremacists, the armed militia, and extremist groups like the Proud Boys, and QAnon.
    The terrorists that stormed the Capitol building were there result of that. They attacked that building with weapons, and put up a noose outside. They also put up a cross, symbolizing who they were, white Christians. He told them he was “proud” of them, and that he loved them. He refused to respond to the pleas asking for help to stop the violence, he ignored them all enjoying watching the violence on television.
    It has all backfired on him.
    Dividing a country, implementing racist policies, and discriminating the minority, never works. The nation does not progress, and extremists get empowered with leaders who show their racist thinking by targeting the minority at every opportunity.
    It was not the Mexicans, Muslims, nor Illegal immigrants he warned the country about, who stormed America’s Capitol building violently, killing, destroying, looting, injuring, and spreading feces on the ground. These were White Christian Americans. His devoted base.

      In conclusion:

      The lies and poison he has spread with conspiracy theories, has poisoned the country, and it will take years to return to normalcy. He has been banned from Twitter, FB, and social media, because unlike his predecessor, he used it for vicious purposes, to divide with lies, insult, attack those who refused to do his bidding, and egg on his cult supporters to resort to violence. He will be leaving the presidency in utter disgrace, and with his family, will be treated like pariahs by other nations, businesses, and may not be able to run for any public office again. New York city has cancelled all contract with his organization a $11 million loss. It is only the beginning.
      As for his supporters, they have been fed with conspiracy theories, and made to hate the other side. According to what they have been told, Governors, Elections officials, Members of Congress, the Media, Courts, Judges, Prosecutors, Constitutional Scholars, and even the Medical experts, are all wrong and lying, and Donald J. Trump (the man who has been fact checked to have lied over 25,000 times) is RIGHT AND SPEAKING THE TRUTH. What does that say about them?

      If only the Rajapaksa’s were capable of learning lessons from the disaster in the US.

    Will Biden Administration restore normalcy? Highly unlikely

    Simply because it is not the crisis sought by individuals, but an inevitable crisis of capitalism in the new avatar-that of Globalization , that came to prominence after the failure of neo-liberal capitalism.

    Globalization is the highest form of capitalism.

    Donald trump is the manifestation of globalization that failed.

    Dissatisfied Americans voted Donald to power and stick to him even after four years because
    Donald trump represented what the ordinary Americans desired.

    It is a historical process.

    What Can Nandasena Learn From Donald’s Demise?

    Lesson – Leaving even a small fissure exposed can allow the whole authority ooze out through it. Maintaining the authority successfully mean foreseeing where its will bulge and secure it ahead of time.
    (Lankawe is a country selects it dictator by election, from 1948. US is a country sets example if an elected person fails to up hold constitution then how to fix that problem. In political maturity, US and Lankawe are mountain and valley comparison. Nursery kids have nothing to lean from a PhD like Prof. Kumar. But a lot of things,where their elders like 2nd or 3rd graders acting drama and they are watching it.)

    As a Grand Father before I make a decision I always wonder and think “how would my Grand Children look at me in the future based on this decision”. Nandasena/Gotabaya has his Son who recently married in USA and his Grand Child when born will be an American and not a Citizen of SL. Based on the upbringing in a true democracy and the education system in USA, the Grand Child will be an independently thinking person and would Nandasena/Gotabaya want the Grand Child to read and decide that his or her Grand Father was a murderer of media persons, a guy who grabbed the power by flaming racism and the power over a country by force, a guy who threatened the life of MPs who spoke against him in the Parliament and above all a tyrant? We all will agree that historians as in the recent past and in the future will name Gotabaya as a person who came to power by flaming racism and maintained racism and is a man who threatened the life of a MP.

      Buddhist1,
      Your grandchild will wonder how my grandfather turned out to be a barbaric terrorist who slaughtered innocent Sinhala men, women, children and even unborn babies for three decades to grab a part of the country of Sinhalayo who helped Demalu to stay in their country by giving citizenship.
      Gotabhaya Rajapakshe’s grandchild will brag that my grandfather gave the leadership to eliminate one of the deadliest terrorist group in the world called Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam who slaughtered innocent Sinhala men, women, children and even unborn babies to grab a part of his Motherland to create a separate State for the descendants of Dravida slaves brought to his country by colonial rulers.

    There is a “Difference” between Trump and GR. Trump was arrogant and decisive in his own judgment. Never hanged on to others to defend his judgment. On the other hand, GR hangs on to others to justify whatever he says and does. Take for instance the latest criticism leveled against GR on that speech made in meeting the villagers, in saying that “I killed Prbakaran like a dog”. All people have failed to see through the context in which he made that outburst. He said: ” I have two characters. One a President and the other a Defense Secretary. The Buddhist Priests are asking me not to be a President, but be a Defense Secretary”. Just see how he hanged to “Buddhist Priests” to issue that threat. But quite conversely, Donald Trump never “Hanged” on to others to behave, say and act, but did everything by himself. In GR’s case, he is a “Cowered” while Trump is a “Bold” but a “Foolish” leader.

      “Just see how he hanged to “Buddhist Priests” to issue that threat.”

      Before the Presidential Elections
      “Vendaruwe Upali Thero, the Anunayaka of the Asgiriya Chapter delivering an anusasana on the occasion of an almsgiving marking the 69th birthday of Gotabaya Rajapaksa said that he should opt for military rule if this is what is necessary to build the country”. “Ven Upali, noting that Gotabaya is referred to as a Hitler, suggested that if that is the case he should be one and build the nation.” –

    Consequence of voting an untested yet an armyman for 15 years and IT tech (Gas station cashier in the night time) doing system maintenance to power to be the president with the support of few media persons. 69 Mn foolish uneducated voters and a fraction of so called educated were made to believe that SL can be the next Singapore by this person who descended from Trumpland and compared him with Lee. Colombo beautification was one of his achievement an easy task with the assistance of a good urban planner and the work was made easy as the brother gave him open treasury cheques to spend without any cheques and balances. The man was seen openly boasting to media that “Apita maka lasian korola pennann puluvan. Api meeta pera korala tiyenawa” during the unsuccessful 59 day coup. The man didn’t have the intelligence to understand that the role of a Head of State is not that easy as IT tech and now is feeling desperate and frustrated that he can’t perform and has be come a joke. Things will become worse in time to come.

      ===================
      is that a compensation for lack of real life erection in bed!
