Reptilian News cartoon: The Climate Change case against Illegal Immigration

As third-world immigrants start to live first-world countries, they will be polluting at the same levels as regular first-world denizens, thereby causing more “manpeople-made accelerated Climate Change”.

Populations in developed countries have been slowing down. The beneficial effect of a slowing population is lesser pollution. However illegal immigration is reversing this. When Third-world people live in developed countries, the consume and pollute like First-World citizens. It is undoubtedly causing accelerated irreversible Man-made Climate Change. Illegal immigration is bad for the Earth. By supporting illegal immigration, you are enabling Climate Change.

Yesterday’s imperialists are today’s globalists. They are our only and one true global enemy.

Reptilian news: How foreign countries can hack Indian EVMs – Like RFID chips and crystal radio receiver sets, the EVMs can be tampered with special radio instructions used by saboteurs

If the ICs used in the EVMs are not manufactured in India, then countries like UK or USA are honour-bound to add undocumented software routines and components to the chips.

  • If EVM software is hardcoded into the chips, then undocumented code pathways can be included at the chip manufacturer’s end at the behest of countries like US/UK. If the code is stored in flash memory, then code or the final tally can also be flashed or compromised by EC officials. It is unlikely that the EC has chosen flash memory-based chips. So, it must be the first case.

    Reptilian News cartoon: How foreign countries can change Indian voting results

    Indian EVMs use foreign-made ICs (microchips) and components. Foreign governments can now decide who will win Indian elections by requiring these EVMs use undocumented secret code routines that respond to external radio instructions supplied by election saboteurs.

  • The chips could have RFID elements that could leak vote count data to specially made RFID readers. After the Punjab elections, Modi seems to have received advance word about the votes cast. As a defensive measure, he asked his ministers to show details of tours they undertook to defend the demonetization exercise. This proves that someone was able to scan all the EVMs and realize that BJP-SAD combine had did not gather enough votes.
  • Another more cumbersome tactic is to use EMI readers individual vote counts. This is unlikely to be case.
  • RFID chips do not require power. The radio waves emitted by the scanners provide the power for the RFID chips to emit data. The same concept can also be used to write fresh data into the EVMs. The vote count can be changed by activating unknown code pathways and components in the chips. This is how BJP manages to win seats in places where Muslims are in majority.

When BJP was repeating “Modi Wave! Modi Wave! Modi Wave!”, they were really telling the truth. Similar to how a crystal radio receiver set uses power from AM/MW broadcast radio waves to power a small earphone speaker, RFID components in the EVM chips are activated by radio waves to hack and manipulate the vote count.

What the EC has done or EVM manufacturers such as ECIL or BEL have done is protect against physical tampering.

Most coin-operated phones in India can be hacked using tones generated by pressing certain numbers on a mobile phone. This does not require physical tampering of the machines.

When EC officials says the EVMs are tamper-proof, they are right. For these simple-minded government officials, hacking means physical tampering.

EC has challenged political parties to hack the machines under control conditions. This will not work. The EC should give each political party at least 10 sample EVMs. The political parties should be able to take the EVMs away with them. Hardware security professionals hired by political parties will then be able to study the machines at leisure – say for a month. After that, these professionals can demonstrate hackability on fresh EVMs under control conditions set by the EC. Or, at the least, they can point out unwanted components in the EVM chips, which the EC should be duty-bound to explain.

Reptilian News – Modi enables mass-poisoning of Indians by allowing edible oils to be blended with GMO cottonseed oil

What is poisonous to the worm will also be poisonous to humans, as the pesticide is not sprayed but genetically produced in every cell of the crop.

Reptilian News - GMO Bt-Cotton poisoning cows and humans

Unlike conventional plants given a surface spray of pesticides, GMO Bt-Cotton plants produce unnatural toxins in every cell. After removing the cotton wool, cottonseeds are crushed and the oil blended into cooking oils, thereby poisoning humans as well. Crushed cottonseeds are also used as cattlefeed.

Beware of the “refined” cooking oil available in the market. Instead of mechanically pressing the seeds to extract oil, oil refiners are using chemical solvents to do the same. And, to make the oil look crystal clear more chemicals are added and vital nutrients are removed from it. (Hindu Business Line; Solvent extractors trade body locks horns with Ramdev’s Patanjali; Vandana Shiva writes (

The ghani (oil extraction plant) set up by Mahatma Gandhi at Sewashram in Wardha, Maharashtra, has been a visible and working symbol of a self-reliant community since 1934. This living legacy is now in danger of shutting down.

Ghanis have been around since ancient times. Food historian KT Achaya dates the use of sesame oilseeds to the Harappan civilisation around 2000 BC. The ghani entails a symbiotic relationship between farmers who grow oilseeds and consumers looking for fresh, healthy, cold-pressed oil. This rustic, grassroots enterprise today finds itself on the wrong side of modern food safety regulations.

Now, to make more profits, solvent extractors are blending cooking oils with cottonseed oils. Much of Indian cotton farmers have switched to the poisonous GMO cotton. People oppose GMO for common sense, scientific, and economic reasons.

Common sense – the idea of splicing plant gene strands & putting poison-producing genes from a bacteria should be revolting. It is also a disproportionate response, like swatting a fly with a hammer. Instead of spraying a pesticide, they are putting it in every cell of the plant.

Scientific – The pesticide (from the bacterium genes) is in every cell of the crop unlike earlier solutions such as sprayed pesticides which can be washed away. The pesticide that kills the bollworm will harm humans too, even if it doesn’t immediately kill them.

Economic – For millennia, farmers are used to retaining the seeds from the current harvest for planting in the next harvest. GMO companyies want to take away this right by selling them third-generation seeds which mathematically increase the number of unviable seeds with each replanting. GMO crops are not only designed to make farmers dependent on the seed manufacturer but also specially designed pesticides such as glyphosate.

Scientists benefiting from GMO brush aside all opposition as the babblings of a superstitious lot. LEAVE THE SCIENCE TO US!

Apparently, the “bollworm-resistant GMO cotton” is not really bollworm-resistant. Even though a majority of cotton farmers have switched to SCIENCE-based GMO cotton, they still have to contend with many strains of bollworm. They have to continue to buy pesticides, which the GMO  poison was supposed to eliminate. In the US, GMO and glyphosate use has given rise to “super weeds” which grow taller than a human being! (They weeds adapted with genetic mutation as only those that survived the glyphosate spraying to create another generation.) To combat super weeds, farmers are spraying more pesticides, endangering not only themselves but also those living in the neighborhood of these farms. (GMO poisoning is then given new causes such as Zika virus without any scientific basis.)


So much for all that SHIENSH claims! Monsanto claims that testing the safety of GMO and related pesticides is not its job.

Contrary to public belief, US FDA & DOA don’t do any testing. certifing. The revolving door policy encouraged by US presidents over several decades ensures that ex-industry executives (not scientists) who become officials in these government agencies are richly rewarded when they return back to the industry after their stint at “public service”. US government scientists do not actually validate any product on the market. They are there to create an illusion for the benefit of a gullible public.

How Climate Scientologists cherry-pick climate data and lie to you

Nothing like statistics to lie about science and that’s what 97% of climate scientists use.

US Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler wondered why it is so cold when the scientologists are claiming that is earth is busy warming. So, Washington Post decided to debunk what she might have implied with climate science data from the US NOAA website. Anyone can go that website and plot the graph.

Washington Post blog article cherry-picks NOAA climate data to imply Kansas temperatures have risen. Yet over last century, they have closed, as seen in previous graph.

Washington Post article uses a limited climate data set. The NOAA website has temperature date only from 1975 for Kansas City , Missouri.

If you observe the graph, there are more upward spikes in recent times. The graph seems to be on course to have more downward spikes in the next 15 years and neutralize the recent upward trend but lets not make predictions as these scientologists haphazardly do.

The date range used in the graph is very small. Kansas City (in Missouri state) temperatures are available only from 1975. This is not good to make climate predictions. If you take the entire state of Missouri, whose temperature data is available from 1900, there is a different trend in that graph. You will see that temperatures have hardly risen – zero! (Not that 100-year data is any good to make climate change predictions.)


NOAA has data from 1900 for the state of Missouri where Kansas City is located. The plotted graph shows no “climate change”.

You can twist and stretch statistics to prove almost anything. For example, if you change the date range to 1977 to 1998, there is zero climate change for Kansas City. But just move the start date by 2 years and lo you have 0.2F climate change!


Climate Change has been going on since day 1. It is what made the Earth transform from a fiery ball of fire to a living planet. The 97% of climate scientists who agonize over “man-made climate change” fear for their jobs. Do not let this false propaganda stop us from cleaning the environment. Tax the richest people on earth and make them pay for the cleanup. Spare the people at the bottom of the rich-poor pyramid.

Reptilian News - Thank you, Climate Change

The Earth changed from a burning ball of fire to a water-filled life-supporting habitat for birds and animals thanks to Climate Change. Climate Change began on Day 1 before dinosaurs, life…

10 Ways That Global Elites Can Slow Down Climate Change

Global elite are at the forefront of fighting climate change. They should set an example themselves first before asking others to make sacrifices.

1. Don’t live in big luxury homes – Choose Hong Kong-style one-room apartments

Big houses consume more energy. They also trap more sunlight and contribute to global warming. Live in one-room apartments in clustered high-rise apartments, as in Hong Kong, Shanghai or Beijing.

When you call something smart, the smarts seem to be disappear from the people.

When you call something smart, the smarts seem to be disappear from the people.

2. No private planes – Travel economy on commercial passenger airlines – Or, better, choose trains & buses!

Private planes contribute to global warming. Private luxury jets, in particular, are extremely wasteful and polluting. If you have to travel by air, then choose scheduled economy-class flights on commercial airlines. Prefer mass transport options such as trains or buses. Walk if necessary. Don’t use cars. If you use electric cars, you still are expending fossil fuels at the thermal power plants.

3. You should have no children – If you have any, kill them – It is the ethical thing to do!

Expanding global population threatens the future of our planet. In order to encourage others, you should stop producing children. If you already have children, then kill them. Post-birth abortions are supposedly ethical. This idea was floated on BMJ Journal of Medical Ethics.

4. Vaccinate your children, often – Enroll your entire tribe in vaccine trials – Use force if necessary

Your vaccine propaganda has included claims that an infant could safely take up to 1,00,000 hundred vaccines (Paul Offit, October 2005; Parents’ Pack newsletter; Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia). You should set an example to others by giving all those vaccines to your kids in public. There should be weekly elite vaccination camps.

All elites should be mandatorily enrolled in vaccine trials and experimental drugs. Drugs/vaccines proven safe after extensive testing on your crowd should only be released for general use.

Vaccines are regularly tested on babies without the consent of parent. Babies that die from vaccines are ascribed wrong cause of death but their dead bodies are used for studying the effects of vaccines anyway.

Vaccines are regularly tested on babies without the consent of parent. Babies that die from vaccines are ascribed wrong cause of death but their dead bodies are used for studying the effects of vaccines anyway.

Elites should be administered experimental vaccines by force if necessary.

An article in American Medical Association's Journal of Medical Ethics floats the idea of forced vaccinations.

An article in American Medical Association’s Journal of Medical Ethics floats the idea of forced vaccinations.

Vaccinated populations seem to show high incidence of cancer, hypertension, and other diseases. Fertility rates are also decreasing among vaccinated populations. Many of them are turning homosexual or discovering alternative lifestyles that does not involve baby-making. Less population means less climate change. Go for it!

5. Eat less – Eat mass-produced plastic food made from recycled industrial waste – Eat roaches if you like non-vegetarian

We know you are gluttons. Many of you are overweight. Every meal you take at a restaurant could feed a Third-world family for a year. You should eat less. Preferably plastic food from McDonalds.

Or, as United Nations recommends, eat cockroaches and insects.

Taco Bell used to say that their version of “organic” sand passes the test.

Eat trees if you are the type that seeks to be one with the Universe. MacDonald’s saw dust cellulouse may look appealing to you.

There is saw dust in McDonald's non-dairy milk shake?

There is saw dust in McDonald’s non-dairy milk shake?

6. Stop polluting the environment – Buy pollution control equipment – Use modern technologies

You own most of the world’s biggest polluters – factories, mines, etc. You cause most pollution. How about reducing that? How about installing pollution control equipment with your own money? Or using modern technologies that mitigate/avoid pollution?

7. Stop destroying forests and farmlands – Don’t throw economic hitmen on nations – Don’t threaten/attack/rape/kill/bribe!

You are acquiring forests and farmlands from poor people in Third World countries. How about stopping that? You are also hiring economic hitmen and thugs to drive out farmers and forest dwellers. You are bribing government officials, police and military. You are also overthrowing governments, politicians and anyone in your path. Stop that.

8. Stop hiding your income – Repatriate funds hidden abroad – Pay your fair share of taxes!

Individuals pay tax on their total income. Corporations pay tax only on profit before tax. You put all your expenses on the books of your companies, trusts and other cutouts and you pay little income tax. In fact, many of you show notional losses to pay no tax or even demand refunds from past payments. Even the profits generated by companies are held in tax havens abroad and are never repatriated. If you pay your fair share of taxes, it will help governments fund efforts to save the environment.

9. Contribute to save the environment – Pay Elite Carbon Tax – Carbon tax exclusively for elites!

Carbon tax should be exclusive for the elite. You own most of the wealth. Then, you should pay carbon tax, not the slaves. Carbon tax should be a top-down affair, affecting owners of polluting industries such as oil companies and miners, not consumers.

10. Give green technologies a chance – Don’t co-opt them and make them financially unviable

You control the banks and the lending. Your advisers mandate what technologies to choose and what equipment to buy. This increase the capital cost of implementing green technologies and makes them seem unviable.

Modi’s enduring legacy will be American nuclear reactors & GMO killing us with cancer & unpayable debt

It is extremely sad and astounding how much a megalomaniac’s vanity can be exploited.

Reptilian News: Why Israel is a nation of squatters or the world’s largest ghetto?

CNN has fired a contributor who decide to go to the other side – to the Palestinian’s. Most people do not know that Israel is Arab land colonized by European Jews. When the UN divided Palestine with 67% going to European Jews, the Jews owned less than 7%. And, Arab Muslims would form half the population of Israel. Of course, Israel evicted the Muslims, Christian and other ethnic groups and became almost fully Jewish. Moral Volcano has covered this travesty of justice in detail at

Reptilian Jews: Why Israel is a nation of squatters or the world's largest ghetto

In 1947, the UN Security Council divided the Arab land of Palestine with 67% of the land going to 33% (European Jews). The Palestinians including Arab Muslims, Christians, Druze and other ethnic groups living there for centuries had to part with their land for European Jews.

Reptilian News: Hillary wants to run again for the office of President!

Reptilian News: Hillary wants to run again for the office of President

The Overly Attached Presidential Candidate award goes to Mrs. Hillary Clinton.

Given the level of corruption charges related not just to the Clinton Foundation, one would presume that the Clintons would not be interested in attracting attention to themselves. Instead, they are planning to run again. Why? Maybe, because they see that as the only way they can avoid jail. But, why are the so afraid? Trump early in his presidency said he did not want to go after her for her crimes. Under him, the FBI continues to be like under Obama. Recently, they raided the whistleblower of the Clinton Foundation.

Maureen Dowd says:

The Clintons’ tin cup is worthy of the Smithsonian. They hoovered more than $2 billion in contributions to their campaigns, foundation and philanthropies.

After the White House, the money-grubbing raged on, with the Clintons making over 700 speeches in a 15-year period, blithely unconcerned with any appearance of avarice or of shady special interests and foreign countries buying influence. They stockpiled a whopping $240 million. Even leading up to her 2016 presidential run, Hillary was packing in the speeches, talking to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, the American Camp Association, eBay, and there was that infamous trifecta of speeches for Goldman Sachs worth $675,000.

My thoughts are being channelled…to and from YouTube!

Recently I created a DIY LED torch on a stick.

A few days later, a YouTuber (whose channel I subscribe anonymously using RSS) also created a similar torch but she put it inside a DIY lantern. The PCB and the LED placement was the same. Something similar happened with another channel that I subscribe via RSS. One day, I created a rectangular cloth bag for my electronic piano. That day I also bought two orange-colored button-cell torches for DIY joule theif projects. The next day, this guy brings out a new video demonstrating an orange-colored rectangular bag! Are the reptilians going to ridiculous lengths and paying these people to mess with me?

Wondering if I was going crazy, I went back to this channel’s videos page and noticed that I had bought a t-shirt a few days back without realising that this guy has been wearing something similar for months. Both t-shirts had the same color and design except that mine has full sleeves. The reptilians hypnotized me into buying this!

From then onwards, I stopped watching new YouTube videos fetched by RSS. Interestingly, despite claims of Google’s technical prowess, YouTube’s RSS feed doesn’t comply with the spec. It also lists videos with wrong dates such that sometimes old videos can become listed with new dates and appear as new. Maybe Google software developers are incompetent or they intentionally want their RSS feeds to be unreliable. (RSS is anonymous whereas the advertisement platform Google prefers user-tracking subscription-based followers.) Or, did the reptilians find something in those old videos to mess with my brain and then disguised the videos as new?

I did not know and did not want to now. If it were the latter, it confirms one of two things. Google helps the reptilians. Or, the reptilians can spoof Google’s SSL certificates and run a fake YouTube instance on a private server at the ISP, customized for one individual. (Don’t think it can happen? Do you remember how Amit Shah placed a female “architect” on surveillance citing “national security reasons” when in reality it was “Saheb’s” (Modi’s) love-struck and aching heart. A police official named Vanzara released tapes of phone calls from Amit Shah because he had to spend several years in judicial custody during the trial for an encounter killing orchestrated by the Intelligence Bureau (in an attempt to recruit Modi for the FBI, prior to his elevation as a prime ministerial candidate). IB’s only defence was that the “intelligence input” had come from FBI. They could not present any evidence that the victims who were killed in cold blood had become violent before the “shooting in self-defence”. The CBI investigated the case and was about to charge on an IB officer but after Modi became PM, the caged parrot wound up the investigation.)

Times of India reporter digs deeper into Sahib’s love affair.


I then decided to make my YouTube browsing even more unpredictable. (Already, I watch the videos offline and I also block all ads.) Now, I go to a new channel and download all videos that seem to be interesting. (I have a Greasemonkey script that makes this easy.) Afterwards, no more daily checks for new videos. I don’t visit the channel again. I do add the channel’s RSS feed to my feedreader so that the reptilians can continue to waste increasing amounts of money. I check the RSS feeds intermittently so that it remains a high-cost low-return toil for them. With YouTube making less money and handing out even lesser amounts to content creators, even reptilian dollars are important. In my feed reader, YouTube RSS feeds are listed under a category called bait.

Five years ago, when I was listening to the No Agenda podcast, something similar happened. At least at that time, I managed to find that Adam Curry was a Freemason stooge. I stopped listening to the show afterwards as it became clear that the show was just a moneymaking operation for the hosts and a honeypot operation for the feds. Unlike the No Agenda hosts, the YouTubers are open and honest that they are purely commercial operators. I wish all the best for them.

Bike trip to Chennai from Palakkad? Not worth it! Learn from my experience

Three national highways with numerous tollgates and concrete jungle on either side makes it a boring tiresome 540-km journey.

I started at 6 am at Palakkad and ended the journey at my home in Chennai at 7 pm. For the way back, one day later, I started at 12 noon and ended the journey at 1 am next day. It was 13 hours on the bike, each time.

Route Highway Distance Time (onward/return) Speed (onward/return)
Palakkad-Salem NH544 (Salem-Kochi Highway – NH47) 211 (from my place) NA/4.5 hours 50/50-30
Salem-Ulundurpettai NH79 (Salem-Ulundurpet Bypass) 140 (to NH544 headend) NA/3.5 hours 60/40-70
Ulundurpettai-Chennai NH38 (Vellore-Tuticorin Highway – NH45), NH132, NH32 and NH48 (Delhi-Chennai Highway or Chennai Bypass) 191 (to my suburban hometown) NA/5 hours 70-30/50-30

Original Route
Using PC at home, I decided that the shortest route would be to first go to Salem on NH544, then via Thiruvanamalai (via Kalvarayan Hills), Sriperumbadur and Poondamallee (Poonamallee/Poovirundamallee) to my suburban hometown in Chennai. I printed these maps on paper but they eventually became useless. I forgot to carry my data SIM and I could not use mapping apps on the go. There was no need for them, as I rarely had to leave the highway. My only worry was missing some road sign and overshooting an important turn. I got reassurances from people/police to be sure that I was on the right way.

Onward Journey
From Palakkad to Salem, I rode at 50 kmph on the NH544, as that was the highest fuel-economy speed on my city commuter bike. After leaving the national highway at Salem, I had trouble finding the scenic route to Thiruvannamalai. People I asked on the road told me to proceed on NH79 and then take a diversion to Thiruvannamalai after a few kilometers. I did that but my speed was hampered by mofussil traffic. I then decided to return to the highway again. This was an empty highway (although with numerous tolls) and I increased my speed to 60 and soon became comfortable with it. This highway ended in NH38 and I increased the speed to 70. (The bike’s engine vibrations becomes noticeable at 60 and become annoying at 80.) I saw two accidents involving motorcyclists on NH38. I tried not to assimilate the visual details but became unnerved nevertheless. I reduced my speed to 50 again. At Chengalpattu (Chingleput), Chennai city traffic began piling up and speed was 30 at most. Before entering the city, I found NH48, which bypassed the city and took me to my hometown. They were still constructing NH48 during my earlier visits. By this time, though, it was dark and the traffic was slow at many signals. I can drive only at 30 in city traffic at night.

Return journey
It was raining when I started back. There was no rain from Tambaram onwards. Because of the accidents I saw earlier, I decided not to go beyond 50 on this leg of the journey. I reached the Ulundurpettai junction after 5 hours.

From the NH junction to Salem starting point for Salem-Kochi highway (NH544), it took 3.5 hours. For the first one to one-and-a-half, I decided to do 60 to 70 because daylight wouldn’t last until Salem. When it became dark, the speed dropped to 40 for 2.5 hours.

I reached the NH544 at 8.30 pm. NH544 and NH79 are not connected. I had to go through some Salem city traffic to reach NH544. Just follow the directions towards Coimbatore. From there to my home, it took 4.5 hours to cover 200 km highway and 13 kms of mofussil route.

The highways

  • NH 544 – Salem-Kochi National Highway (still marked as NH47): This highway starts from Salem, goes through Erode, Avinashi, Coimbatore, Palakkad, Thrissur, and ends in Kochi (Cochin).
  • NH 79 – Salem-Ulundurpettai National Highway. It ends in NH38, which connects to Vizhuparam.
  • NH 38 – Velore-Tuticorin National Highway. It passes through Ulundurpettai before branching off to Thiruvannamalai/Vellore at Vizhuparam.
  • NH 132 – Vizhuparam-Tindivanam National Highway. It connects Vizhuparam from NH38 to Chingleput.
  • NH 32 – Chingleput-Nagapattinam National Highway. It connects Chingleput with Chennai.
  • NH 48 – Chennai Bypass Road. This highway bypasses Chennai city and connects to NH16, which goes to Andhra, Orissa and West Bengal. Bangalore visitors also take this route before branching off. NH48 passes through Chennai northern suburbs such as Porur, Anna Nagar & Puzhal and is the easiest route from Tambaram, Vandalur, etc.

NH38, NH132 and NH32 were still marked as NH45.

Three highways (NH38,NH32,NH132) take you to Chennai. They are still marked as NH45. The fourth highway NH48 is Chennai bypass.

The good

  • The only good thing about these highways was the fact that there were no potholes.
  • There were many eateries and fuel pumps all along the way and finding one was not a problem. In the onward journey, I had dosa and pongal. I like pongal. I should remember to take more of it. On the way back, I saw two billboards at an eatery that caught my attention. One said “steam cooking.” The other said, no artificial flavors, preservatives, ajinomoto (monosodium glutamate) or colors. It was a vegetarian restaurant called and run by Only Coffee India Pvt. Ltd. Every dish in the meal tasted very good. Even the bitterguard (which I never eat) was good. Unlike in many restaurants, the rasam had real whole black pepper. The place was clean. Their specialty seems to be coffee but I did not order. It was lunchtime and I don’t take coffee more than once per day anyway. On the way from there, I saw a few more Only Cofee stalls but they don’t seem to be related.

The bad
Some stretches of the highways have medians, which block the light glare from oncoming traffic. This makes driving easier. Speeds at night on these stretches can be as good as in the day. The problem is that they are not everywhere. So, driving at night is difficult.

The ugly

  • Unlike toll collection areas, there is no lighting on many stretches with heavy traffic.
  • The lanes are not marked in many stretches. If you have to ride on the fast lane, you end up exhausting the fuel quicker.
  • On bridges, the third lane disappears to an abrupt stop or goes to an elevated footpath. Both are dangerous at night.
  • Bright decorative lighting used by some buildings on the sides of the highway are distracting. Two-wheeler headlights cannot compete with such lighting. Car headlights are brighter.
  • People living alongside the highways are considerably inconvenienced by them. I found people wearing dark clothes and riding bicycles at night without no backlight bulbs or reflectors. They may get easily knocked down by motorists. Car drivers just blare their horns and speed through unattended crossings
  • At night, I found some trucks cutting into the highway from service lanes without any horn warning or backlight bulbs or reflectors. They were so covered in dirt that I couldn’t see them until the last moment. They moved in mysteriously like dark apparitions. I wondered if they were assassination attempts. Compared to bus drivers, highway truck drivers are more safety-conscious. So, these unusual incidents were perturbing.

Toll roads are stolen property – stolen public property
The main excuse for having a centralized government is that citizen or local governments or even state governments cannot create nation-wide infrastructure. People expect the government to efficiently run the post office, construct and maintain roads/bridges, and provide a cheap/reliable supply of water and electricity. No Indian government is able to do any of this efficiently. Instead, they don’t just tax us but they lecture us and order us around. Our sellout netas are not only taxing us to benefit private parties but are also bequeathing those tax revenues to foreign lenders. Already state governments have been increasing property taxes because they are unable to pay foreign loan installments.

Previous prime ministers from Nehru to Rajiv Gandhi diverted a lot of tax money to start government-owned companies (PSUs) and give our country a strong industrial base. For prime ministers from Manmohan Singh onwards to Narendra Modi, who owe their post to foreign intrigue, the mandate from their foreign controllers is to sell those same PSU assets. Indian prime ministers have been given disinvestment targets and their finance ministers assiduously tried to meet them against all public opinion. The financial papers are full of “inspired” op-eds reprimanding the government for not meeting the disinvestment target set for the year. The asset sales are anti-national in more than one way. Government’s own expenditure (on itself) is very high. A good amount of plan expenditure is swallowed up by debt repayment (foreign and domestic), opaque and over-priced government contracts, evergreening of bad debts on the balance sheets government-owned banks (NPAs are almost always loans given to chamchas of politicians) and useless mindless and counter-productive schemes like MNREGA.

There are numerous tollgates on these highways. Government has surreptitiously privatized these roads. The roads were earlier public property. Now, a private “company” with a minority stake with the government owns the road. I think even government transport corporation buses are also paying the toll. The toll is highest for goods-carrying trucks. Even for small stretches, they are being made to pay nearly 600 rupees. What they get in return is just a pothole-free but poorly lit two-lane highway.

These tolls are inflationary if you consider the tens of thousands of rupees a truck driver has to pay over a long trip, say, from Delhi to Tamil Nadu. The amount of unnecessary waiting at these toll gates are a drain on national productivity.

Some day in future, when India is unable to pay its debts, IMF/World Bank will order the Indian government to sell its remaining stakes in these “public-private partnership” toll companies to foreign bond holders and lenders. Indian currency would have depreciated a lot and these stake sales would not even cover one interest payment. In the past, IMF/World Bank had used the same trick on countries like Columbia, Chile, Costa Rica, Brazil, Greece and Argentina. Ultimately, the owners of these highways will be foreigners. If India is unable to pay its debt, foreign lenders will ask the toll rates to be increased. Just as PSUs built in the Nehru era at great cost are the targets of “disinvestment” today, the toll roads will one day hawked by the government to pay back its debts. A future finance minister will earn his stripes by “boldly” selling these toll roads to foreign buyers.

In 2011, Greek government officials tried to sell of public assets on the cheap for private equity outfits at a London hotel. Greece was suckered into incurring unmanageable loans by European banks and Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs.

All foreign loans and all the “reforms” are packaged with the intention of Western interests picking up Third-World public assets at a low price. Even Chennai Metrowater was transferred out of government control because it obtained a small World Bank loan. Now, it works at cross-purposes with Chennai Corporation. One of the conditions placed on Indian state electricity boards wanting remain in the national power grid is that they cede government control. The power regulatory authorities, “power genco” and “power transco” utilities that have been formed in various states are the result of World Bank/IMF instructions, even though neither national power grid corporation nor the state electricity boards are borrowing any money from them. The “independent” power regulators and generation/transmission utilities have been formed so that one day a future government will be able to sell them to a foreign lender. Won’t these “independent bodies” eliminate political interference? Only juvenile thinking would indicate that. There are no limits to private greed. When Tamil Nadu decided to build its own solar farm, a private power seller sued the government citing the new “reformed” electricity laws. The government decided to build its own solar power generation utility because the price offered by private producers was too high. The power seller claimed in court that government has no right to generate power on its own but instead should buy it from private producers. This is how traitors in the power ministry framed the laws and sabotaged the nation’s future. In 2013, Cyprus grabbed money from savings account holders to prevent banks from going bust. This executive loot was later called bail-in and several countries quickly pass bail-in regulations so that banks can continue to lend to dubious politicians and their chamchas, foreign and domestic. In India, Modi and Jaitley tried to pass a bail-in law and disguised it as the “Financial Resolution and Deposit Insurance” or FRDI. Modi government withdrew the attempt for now. Oh, please, it is a reform! World Bank will probably punish him.

And, how was my trip?

After three hours on the bike, a$$ hurts. Back of the neck hurts after four. Holding the throttle for 13 hours cannot be good for the wrist. Although a night’s sleep is enough to feel normal again, the mental toll is too much. Riding at night is just nerve-wracking. Riding for the first time on an unknown route is annoying, particularly if you don’t have good maps. I don’t know how Motorcycle Adventures or Rosie Gabrielle does it. Rosie is even more crazy because she uses a big bike on which she cannot sit with both feet on the ground. There are many Indian bikers who have posted online about their been to trips north and south and east and west. How is riding India, with its toll gates and drudgery, a pleasure? You may ride your bike to get a lot likes, but I am afraid it might give you just piles. Many of these bikers wear expensive and tight-fitting protecting gear. I wore the standard Indian shirt-and-pant. On the way back, I wore bathroom slippers instead of shoes because of the rain. I noticed that rushing wind had dried the skin on the back of my palms and that it had become white in some places. It is an acceptable case for gloves. At night, it was slightly chilly on the Coimbatore route. Otherwise, my clothing had no problem. My luggage consisted of clothes, toothbrush n tongue cleaner, and extra footwear. Ear plugs were very useful. On the way back, I forgot where they were. They were in my shirt pocket! Some bikers carry their whole wardrobe, the kitchen fridge, and enough camping gear to furnish a model outhouse. They are overdoing it a bit I think.

From now on, the max I will do one way on any journey will be 100 kms. That too only if the route has good scenic views. No long tar road trips and concrete jungle views for me.

BreitBart video of traumatized Google leadership proves that Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a lot to catch up

Nothing can outwit Natural Stupidity

The news is full of reports about AI this and AI that. These people don’t understand that any software program is an example of AI. It is nothing new. It has been existence for long. It being hyped up by some companies which want to project an image that they are on the cutting edge of technology.

The sad truth is no amount of AI can be help if those in charge of it are morons. Nothing better illustrates this as the BreitBart video of Google leadership in the aftermath of Trump’s election or Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss. Skip to 16 minutes and 42 seconds.

What a bunch of morons!

Beware of the Sumatran Rat Monkey! BrainDead is the goriest bloodiest zombie movie ever

This movie is not kid-friendly, family-friendly or adult-friendly.

This movie from the early 1990s begins rather slowly. I thought that as it was a British movie, it was going to be a slow boring horror movie. No. This movie is from a New Zealand director. The horror fest picks up pace like no tomorrow. While watching the movie, you hope the director would slow down at some point. Nope, the dismembered zombie parts transmogrify and become fresh (if you can call it that) creatures that simply defy description. The movie becomes extremely funny once the zombies start acting up.
