India’s Prime Minister, ultra-nationalist Narendra Modi, does not like Sikhs.
Which is related to the Indian government’s actions in 1984 under then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in Operation Blue Star, when she sent troops to Sikhism’s most treasured holy site, the Golden Temple pf Amritsar, which led to the deaths of over one thousand soldiers and civilians, as Mrs. Gandhi was pressured to take action against separatist Sikhs, a few of whom have been agitating for decades for their own independent territory within India’s Punjab in northwest India.
One could go back to Lord Mountbatten, who drew the lines for various parts of India during Partition in 1947. That didn’t work out well for thousands of Indians who were slaughtered because of the Partition and Pakistan was created and they have nukes and it’s still there.
Recently, a leader of the separatist Sikh community in British Columbia was killed and Prime Minister Trudeau has strong evidence pointing to the government of India for having ordered the killing.
Which is why our Chief International Correspondent, associate solitary reporter Larry Theis, just texted us to tell us that Modi has sent a mere two or three of his nukes to Ottawa to take out the Parliament Building in Ottawa.
In other news, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and his minions, most noticeably including Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, did their best to decapitate Attorney General Merrick Garland during an oversight hearing today.
Jordan is one of Donald Trump’s most loyal adherents.
To show the House Freedom caucus that he means business, Jordan always shows up for hearings with no jacket. Whether that is related to his time as a college wrestler has not been adjudicated.
Were it not for Donald Trump’s support it is dubious if there would be Chairman Jim Jordan. He rules his Judiciary Committee as a Trump surrogate. Witness his harassment yesterday of Attorney General Merrick Garland today, and remember that it was Mitch McConnell who prevented President Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court — Judge Merrick Garland — from even getting a hearing.
Jordan and his close personal friend Kevin McCarthy are engaged in nothing but payback for the Dems’ two impeachment efforts against Trump. Plus those pesky four indictments.
Hunter Biden has his troubles and he is paying for his misdeeds, most if not all of which occurred when his father was Vice President, so now McCarthy, Jordan and friends, including Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), have concocted a payback scheme with no evidence that Joe Biden did anything wrong, see https://www.nytimes.com/live/2023/09/20/us/garland-house-judiciary-hearing#republicans-have-accused-garland-of-misleading-congress-about-the-hunter-biden-investigatio, plus the astute comments of CNN’s Laura Coates yesterday evening.
Which is why for this post we had to bring in associate solitary reporter Keith Coleman.
Though of moderate height, Coleman, as a boy, wanted nothing more than to be an advanced practitioner of the sport of sumo, the ancient Japanese art of wrestling, where men of enormous physical stature throw themselves at each other with no consideration whatsoever for Buddhist compassion.
Coleman is the only American who realizes that at the end of this month, the government will shut down because of lack of funds; but this does not bother McCarthy and Jordan and Boebert, they have other priorities.
During yesterday's oversight hearing convened by Jordan, a former collegiate wrestling champion, ripped off his necktie and tackled Garland, but Garland, a true soldier of justice if there ever was one, kicked Jordan in the cojones, leaving him writhing in pain, while Garland continued his steadfast defense of Justice.
