Why rise of Biden is not good news for Modi, who 'overtly' sided with Donald Trump

Modi with Biden, September 30, 2014, Washington DC 
By Haider Abbas*
The results of US November 3 elections 2020 have been declared, after around five days, as there were clear signs of Democrat Joseph Biden taking an unassailable lead over Republican US president Donald Trump, which is nothing short of a ‘landslide’ as Trump had already put that if he would loose he would not accept defeat. Trump is now set to be sharpening his legal battery to contest the rigging, fraud and manipulation of the elections in US Supreme Court.
The rise of Biden who defeated one-term Trump for the first time in more than a quarter of a century, is surely and certainly not a personal good news for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had become very ‘overt’ by the side of Trump. There is surely a ‘turning of tables’ for India, as India under Modi had been banking very heavily on Trump, without caring for a ‘reaction’ which was to entail in case Trump was to loose.
To India’s embitterment, little before results, Trump’s son showed up Kashmir to be ‘not’ as part of India. After the eerie silence in South Bloc, New Delhi, as Trump had in all these years been quite ‘familiarised’ to prepare India for its war with China and Pakistan, and for it, both had signed Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA) too, there are reluctant congratulatory official messages for Biden and his Indian origin vice-president Kamala Harris.
Trump has as yet refused to bow out, despite his son-in-law Jared Kushner and his wife Melania Trump, who is touted to divorce Trump once he walks-out of Oval office, advising him to step down and accept the defeat gracefully, but Trump who has vowed to expose the fraud of ‘mail-in-voting’ , as after all more 70 million voted for him ‘physically at polling booths unmasked’, while millions voted through email for Biden, is in fact the crux where the whole scenario is now slated to be tied-up.
Trump is with full powers until January 20, 2021, and who knows that he might end up with giving a call to his voters to strike the streets, sack the CIA chief, fire the FBI head or make the Pentagon command go-packing. He had already declared to ‘fix-the-spot’ for Dr Antony Fauci , his chief advisor on Covid-19 after elections!
Trump, in fact, has after all, fought these elections, by totally antagonising his US establishment. He had called US to have bungled the number of coronavirus deaths by generalising all deaths in its category, he called Pentagon interested to prolong the war in Afghanistan and he exposed the killing of Osama Bin Laden during the regime of Obama as ‘hoax’. Plus, he had on multiple times laid-bare the fact as to how corrupt and penetrable the US system has become. No wonder, despite the US as a sole superpower, has lost too much of its credibility.
But, how the coming days are slated to unfold, before the ‘inauguration day’ i.e. when Biden is to take oath on January 21, 2021, is now strewn with many uncertainties, as, if Trump doesn’t relinquishes the power, there might be going to be a barrage of lawsuits, an avalanche of scandals and bad press, which of course the ‘deep-state’ is to ensue, and if in the face of it, Trump gives a call to his voters, then, an anarchy and an outright civil war might be the possibility. The situation is all set to be more alarming, as the president-elect Biden has endorsed the upcoming coronavirus wave shutdown, which Trump had long thrashed.
But, amid all this have come the new predictions from Simpson cartoon, which has a nasty record of foretelling the future, and euphemisms too, as after all, Simpson cartoon had predicted Trump to be president in the year 2000 and how the ‘vote’ placard fell, as shown years back in the cartoon, as it did fall in reality while Trump descended on an escalator is what the world has seen, the September 11 New York attack and even the latest Beirut blasts of August 4, 2020.
Situation is all set to be more alarming, as Biden has endorsed the upcoming coronavirus wave shutdown, which Trump had long thrashed
Simpson cartoon has now shown Biden at the helm, while the counting was still going-on, and shows a January 21, 2021 date with US in flames, then comes the four horsemen, as a stark reminder from Biblical pages, with ‘war, famine, pestilence and free house of horror’ written on their flags, while the streets of US are shown with ‘fire broken all around’. 
The US establishment is therefore into for Biden, which had once vouched for Trump, but Trump may be out of his personal charisma, outflanked his own ‘deep-state’ and became its scapegoat, as does not the world remember that Biden had been the vice-president of Obama, who was shown as a humane face, but at the backstage it was Biden who held the strings!
It was Biden’s ‘nod’ that had brought Arab Spring and the world saw Libya, Egypt, Tunis and Syria writhing with death and destruction, with millions left homeless, but surprisingly, Trump did not perpetuate this Arab Spring and also did not bring up any fresh war. Hence, Simpson cartoon has now foretold the incoming wars! The new-world-order which is now therefore to be Biden’s bidding, and for that nevertheless, Trump had to be removed.
Protests have started in US, which may escalate to the extent that it may destabilise US, as had been feared by Russian intelligence chief on October 8, 2020 in Tass and its dangerous portents are yet to unfold until Biden takes oath and may be thereafter too, but another bait, and that too even before the elections results were declared.
Simpson cartoon has made another prophecy! It has predicted Ivanka Trump, the wife of Jared Kushner, son-in-laws of Donald Trump, who is the ‘figure-and-spirit’ behind Israel opening its embassies in UAE and Bahrain, to be US president in 2028! No doubt Kushner is the second most powerful man in US after Trump for he has the full backing of the Jewish state of Israel.
Let’s see how the politics is made to run for the paving-way-for Ivanka Trump. Or maybe the cartoon might turn out to be a mere euphemism.

Liberating Bengal Hindus? Worst flames of communal division, lessons from the past

By Shamsul Islam*  The whole thrust of the RSS-BJP election campaign for 2021 state assembly elections in West Bengal has been to save Bengal from the rule of Mamata Bannerjee who is allegedly not a ‘Hindu’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a self-proclaimed Hindu nationalist, as usual set the polarizing agenda. While addressing the first election rally, he called upon the electorate to overthrow the ‘nirmam’ (cruel) rule of Mamata by showing a ‘Ram Card’. He did not name Hindus directly but there was no confusion about the religious identity of the electorate Indian PM was addressing to.

Swami Vivekananda's views on caste and sexuality were 'painfully' regressive

Modi's Hindutva 'ensuring' empowerment of rich, disenfranchisement of poor

Bhabani Shankar Nayak*  The Hindutva socio-psychopaths are neither nationalists nor patriotic people. These medieval reactionary forces don’t understand the idea of citizenship, justice, liberty, equality and humanism. Indian democracy is merely an electoral transaction for the Hindutva forces. Hindutva forces neither follow science nor understand the sufferings of fellow human beings. These core qualities are common among the Hindutva forces in India.

Communal rhetoric? Hindutva preached by RSS-BJP is 'monolithic', not Hinduism

By Prem Verma*  I am a devout Hindu but not a believer of RSS Hindutva form of Hinduism which brings about hatred of other religions. My Hindu religion has not taught me to look down on other religions and neither has it instilled in me to go about converting others to my religion because my religion is superior.

India's Covid-19 'nightmare': A product of majoritarian Hindutva ideological praxis?

By Bhabani Shankar Nayak*  Indians struggle to find place and time to bury their dead due to the devastating effects of the second wave of Covid-19 in India. The crematoriums in the capital cities are overflowing with dead bodies. People are dying without oxygen and basic medical support. The cities like Delhi and Mumbai are struggling to cope with the rising number of infections and COVID-19 led deaths. The deaths and destitutions are products of a defunct BJP government led by Narendra Modi.

Despite crisis, Modi's Hindutva strategy 'increased' mass base in society and polity

By Bhabani Shankar Nayak*  Narendra Modi and his RSS brethren can qualify as masters of fake claims. There is a long lists of lies spread by RSS, BJP and their IT cell workers. It is not a personality disorder or lying with fear. They are trained to defend Modi and his government’s decisions in whatever possible way. They defended demonetisation by arguing that it is “an important step” in his fight against black money and corruption.
