Every four years, during the presidential election process in the United States, a question invariably comes up, “Which candidate is better for India?”

This question is best answered if one realises that American politics has been a massive stage-managed show based on an illusion of choice, with the illusion mesmerising an entire population into believing that they choose their political leaders and vote on issues that are dear to them. In reality, the Republican Party and Democratic Party work together behind the scenes and act in tandem on important issues. Voters are asked to make the choice between these two parties only on issues that do not matter to those in power. Even in these cases, the voters are manipulated into voting along racial and religious lines so that there is an appearance of the two parties having an equal share of the vote and competing against each other. Occasionally, when it appears that a candidate who is not part of the system could win an election, those in power are not beyond using illegal means to keep out such people from succeeding.

The share of American voters, who have seen through this game, has grown in recent years, and the support for Donald Trump in the Republican Party and Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party during the 2016 primaries was the direct result of an increase in the number of voters who have gained an understanding of the system. Even though it is possible that neither candidate is actually against the existing setup, there is no denial that the support for them is from people who are opposed to the system. Among the candidates representing the two dominant parties who have made it past the primaries, Donald Trump is perceived as the candidate who is against the corrupt establishment, while Hillary Clinton is seen as part of the establishment and as the most corrupt candidate to run for President in the history of the country.

The fact that the Clintons have used politics to make hundreds of millions of dollars and have funnelled vast sums of money from around the world to the Clinton Foundation, has only strengthened the belief that they are extremely corrupt people who sell influence in exchange for money and power. The most famous case related to the Clinton Foundation is their effort to raise money ostensibly to help the victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. However, the money was not used to help the victims, but for other purposes including investments in insurance businesses and luxury hotels. Bill and Hillary Clinton, as the UN Representative and the US Secretary of State, respectively, also controlled the flow of money from other sources into Haiti, and the contracts to rebuild the country in the aftermath of the earthquake were given either to friends and relatives like Hillary Clinton’s brother or to firms that donated money to the Clinton Foundation. It is little wonder that the moniker “Crooked Hillary” has stuck to Hillary Clinton and even her official campaign has not made any efforts to counter it. Instead, they have admitted in emails that Hillary Clinton suffers from problems related to trustworthiness among the people.

A Hillary Clinton win in the election would bring back the hostility of the 1990s towards India that existed under the presidency of Bill Clinton. India’s relationship with the US took a sudden downturn after Bill Clinton took office in 1993. For nearly a year, Clinton did not bother appointing an ambassador to India even as he went about opposing India on a number of fronts, leading to resentment in the Indian establishment. He first set about the task of disarming and weakening India by preventing access to technology and simultaneously mounted a sustained attack on the Indian economy by imposing several economic sanctions.

In 1991, Senator Joe Biden, who is now the Vice President under Barack Obama, introduced an amendment in the bill granting aid to Russia, making the aid conditional on the fact that Russia could not sell cryogenic engines for India’s space programme. The Clinton administration persisted in taking measures intended to retard the development of India’s space and technology sectors and blocked the sale of Cray supercomputers that had been approved under the Ronald Reagan administration. This was done even as the Clinton administration allowed the sale of these supercomputers to China. India was also targeted for several economic sanctions and was threatened under what was called the Super 301 clause of the American trade law.

The Clinton administration specially targeted the Indian textile and carpet industries for destruction. Throughout the 1990s, the terms “Dunkel Draft”, “Super 301”, “WTO” and “patent laws” became synonyms for the US attempting to destroy the Indian economy and led to many protests in India. In one famous episode, the Clinton administration declared Indian skirts to be flammable and banned them after an official ignited a skirt in front of television cameras.

On the security front too, the Clinton administration was consistently anti-India and pro-Pakistan. Members of the Clinton Cabinet supported terrorists in India, with Clinton’s Vice President Al Gore using the term “Khalistan” to describe Punjab. Bill Clinton’s close friend Robin Raphel was made the Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia, and under her, the US State Department pursued an agenda that supported violent anti-India groups in Jammu and Kashmir, while offering F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan. The State Department also propped up the Taliban regime in Afghanistan during this period.

More recently, when Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State, Robin Raphel was appointed to oversee a $7.5 billion aid package to Pakistan, but ended up being investigated by the FBI for spying on behalf of Pakistan and lost her security clearance. The charges against her were dropped only after Hillary Clinton herself ended up being investigated by FBI for using a private email server for classified emails. Had Robin Raphel been prosecuted, it would have been impossible for the FBI to justify dropping the charges against Hillary Clinton.

By 1996, India was justified in believing that Indo-US relations had hit the lowest point, but things took a dramatic turn for the worse during Bill Clinton’s second term in office. Warren Christopher was replaced by Madeleine Albright as the Secretary of State and she made no efforts to hide her hostility towards India and her weekly outbursts on television even bordered on racism. Even after leaving office, Albright continued her attacks on India and called for a plebiscite in Kashmir, thus justifying the actions of violent groups. Albright’s cynical action of bombing Yugoslavia and then getting her investment firm to attempt a takeover of mines in that country is an example of the abuse of power by people close to the Clintons. Albright also justified the deaths of half a million Iraqi children and claimed that the deaths were “worth it”. Recently, Albright threatened women in America and claimed that there was a special place in hell reserved for them if they did not vote for Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as the Secretary of State, picked up where Bill Clinton and his Cabinet members had left off and did not waste any time in pursuing anti-India activities. Within weeks of Hillary Clinton assuming office, Teesta Setalvad, an activist involved in framing Narendra Modi using false charges, was paid a handsome donation by Vikram Chatwal, whose father Sant Chatwal was at one time a trustee of the Clinton Foundation. Emails leaked by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks show that Sant Chatwal also had a role in the infamous cash-for-votes scam in which money was paid to purchase votes in the Lok Sabha. Other emails leaked by WikiLeaks show that the US government intended to fund Teesta Setalvad’s NGO and use her claims in the so-called human rights reports that could be used against India and Hindus.

Given Hillary Clinton’s background, these actions are not unexpected. Investigative reporter Jeff Sharlet has exposed the fact that Hillary Clinton is part of a secretive group in Washington DC variously known as the Fellowship, the Family, or the C Street House. This group is known to use religion to further their geopolitical agenda around the world and evangelical Christians are their main tool when it comes to interfering in other countries. The separation of East Timor from Indonesia using religious persecution as the excuse was one of their achievements under Bill Clinton, and when Atal Behari Vajpayee became the Prime Minister of India for a few days in 1996, Bill Clinton acted at the behest of this group and set up an advisory committee that would supposedly deal with religious freedom around the world.

Curiously, this committee had members from every faith except Hinduism, and it recommended the creation of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), a government agency that has used, since its inception, fictitious claims to attack Hindus and India. It was the USCIRF that was responsible for demonising Narendra Modi using false charges and recommending that he not be permitted to enter the US. According to emails leaked by WikiLeaks, Preeta Bansal, the USCIRF commissioner, who was the main person responsible for this action, has also pressured Vietnam into accepting proselytism by American missionaries and is close to people in the Hillary Clinton campaign.

It is not just the past record, but the future too portends a disastrous era for Indo-US relations should Hillary Clinton end up becoming the President of the United States. There is already talk of Joe Biden being tapped by Hillary Clinton for the position of the Secretary of State. Biden would definitely pursue his agenda of thwarting the development of India’s space programme and other technological advancements. Even more worrisome is the fact that Hillary Clinton’s closest confidante is Huma Abedin who is of Pakistani descent and whose family has links to radical Islamist elements in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Abedin could end up playing an important role in determining American foreign policy.

Another point against Hillary Clinton is that the war hawk Henry Kissinger has come out in support of her and has praised her stint as Secretary of State. Kissinger’s hostility towards India is no state secret, as many of his racist, anti-India statements have been recorded on tape.

It is in the light of this background that many Indian-Americans have opposed the candidacy of Hillary Clinton and have come out in support of Donald Trump. In contrast to the policies of the Clintons, Trump has promised to make India the best friend of the US and has stated that he looks forward to working with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Trump has also reached out to Hindus in US. While there is always a risk of the unknown and it is not clear if Trump can succeed in cleaning up the system even if he intends to do so, a Hillary presidency will certainly be an unmitigated disaster for India.

Despite these facts, some Indian-Americans support Hillary Clinton, but their support is not based on sound analysis but on flawed information fed to them by the media. Most such supporters are highly qualified when it comes to educational degrees, but fall under the category of what is known in American parlance as “low information voters”. Most educated Indian-Americans typically demonstrate very little interest in politics and have almost never been part of even informal political discussions. America has made many things accessible to most people and politics is no exception. Usually, the process of making things accessible to a large number of people has involved dumbing down the system and controlling the behaviour of people.

Just as education has been dumbed down in US in order to make it easy for everyone to be part of the school system, politics too has been dumbed down and simplified so that even the most ignorant voter can have a sense of making a choice and being politically empowered. The educated class among Indian-Americans are especially suited to this model as they have no inclination towards politics but have been conditioned to refer to books as the source of their knowledge. They have thus internalised the idea of treating the printed word and assertions they hear from “authoritative sources” as the ultimate truth. They are told through television channels and newspapers that politics consists of exactly two groups, with one group consisting of heroes and the other group consisting of villains, a simplification that they readily embrace. They even use labels like “progressive”, “liberal” and “conservative” to describe themselves, even though they do not really comprehend the meaning of these terms and do not realise that these labels are handed out by politicians. In contrast, many supporters of Donald Trump discuss political issues and seem aware of the situation.

In order for India to build a constructive relationship with US, it requires people in both countries to have good intentions. It is clear that India cannot have a good relationship with the US if Hillary Clinton is at the helm of affairs. On the other hand, Donald Trump has articulated the right intent and his tenure holds promise for India.

A Clinton Presidency will be a disaster for the World, not just India. Putin is right and the West is left. But, nothing will change unless settled once more by verdict on the field of war. Putin plays chess. He does not gamble. Poker is an American vice. A post Assad Syria would be like a Post Sadam Iraq, a Post Qaddafi Libya or a hole in the World's Head like a Post Christian Europe or Post Brahmin India. Can the US ever overcome its classifications of convenience? Of Good (our) terrorists and Bad (Not our) terrorists? Can the US overcome its persistence of vision or delusions such as the long arms of the Salem Witch Trials, "The only good Indian is a dead Indian", Edgar Hoover, Mc Carthyism, and all the other "Four legs good, two legs bad”: Orwellian liturgies that guide a Hollywoodian nation that must have an enemy on which to expend its resources so that pleasure and profit may be the result to its rulers and their cronies? This is what a rapprochement between Russia and the US and averting the Second Cold War maturing into a Third World War demands. Trump might be able to pull it off. Hilary? Never. The low intensity Third World War (The US-Islam axis versus the World) is just gathering momentum. The Second Cold War that Clinton commenced with sound spade work by reneging on the Reagan-Gorby deals and agreements is just being shooed into maturity by Obama after some deft foundation laying by Bush. Clinton bombed Russian ally Yugoslavia, (Belgrade) for 84 days with disregard for International Law to render Croatia to the Vatican and give The Sunni Caliphate its first ethnically cleansed emirates (Kosovo and Bosnia) in Europe after 1489 and took former Soviet countries into NATO. Russia fumed helplessly. Bush invaded Russian ally Iraq to deflect anger over 9/11 from Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and threw thriving communities of Jews, Yazidis and Christians into the maws of the Sunni Caliphate effectively dismantling the UN and "International Law". Again Russia fumed helplessly. Then on to Syria. Putin's letter in the New York Times gained traction with US citizens. The Saudis and Obama were displeased. This was followed through by a False Flag MH-17 to fan the embers of NATO and bring the Second Cold War into the open. The League of Nations and the United Nations came into existence to enforce some sort of civility and rule of law in International affairs after contest on the fields of war had settled the balance of power with reasonable clarity. The League of Nations set the stage for its own demise by exerting excessive and vengeful punity on Germany distorting "balance" essential to harmony. American "exceptionalism" such as Clinton's bombing of Belgrade and Bush's invasion of Iraq have thrown the notion of International Law into the void precisely because there could be no such "balance" in a unipolar world. At present, with two Global Wars (aforementioned) in progress and likely to merge with a third front created by China’s lebensruam, there is no balance to be able to bring about a de facto harmony that can be confirmed as institutionalized Global law. The Pax Britannica yielded to Pax Americana. This has been brought to an end in sequence to the de facto demise of the United Nations by the United States having emasculated itself with wars conducted as a proxy for the Sunni Caliphate (Iraq, Ukraine and elsewhere). though legitimized in the mentally feeble majority by propaganda. The Islamic menace had been paused in Europe in the 15th Century by the Catalonians, the Serbs and the Poles. It was given an illusory quietus by the British Empire who halted the Ottomans and the Mehdi and enforced the peace in the Indian Sub Continent and South East Asia. Talib means "student". The term gained currency when the large numbers of Taliban (students) were indoctrinated in Saudi-Qatari-Kuwaiti etc Petro Dollar funded Sunni Mosques and Madrassas, all round the World, to carry out Mahomet's injunctions to establish his form of banditry and rapine on the rubble of all civilization (also known as Jeehad). This was done as per a promise given by the Tent of Saud to the Tent of Wahab in order to ascend the throne of Arabia without opposition and petro dollars thereafter made possible. Taliban were mobilized to be trained in a CIA-Pakistan established staff college of terror called Al Qaeda (the Base) by CIA instructors recruited from Baader Meinhof, Basque, Irish Republic Army, Ex British SAS and French Foreign Legion mercenaries, Drug Cartels and others . The Pakistan-Arab-Sunni agenda then and now remains to carry out Mahomet's injunctions and establish a Caliphate over the rubble of ALL civilization. The US objective was to get the USSR out of Afghanistan. The Taliban Army comprises, largely, Razakar (volunteers) in varius formations such as, ISIS. Jaish e Mohammed, Harkat ul Mujahideen, Al Shebab, Boko Haram, Indian Union Muslim League, Pakistan Army and so onThey are different regiments of the same Caliphate comprising different bodies of the same Taliban. The rest is Taqiya, Murram, Kitman, Muruna or whatever, The Second Cold War is emerging a Russo-Chinese alliance that might produce a pode if Russia weakens sufficiently to become a Chinese client State. Otherwise, they will not coalesce. While there is great antipathy to China, there is not sufficient faith in a Sunni Surrogacy of easy virtue such as the United States, or confidence, to unite the anti-Sino powers with the US. Rather, there is slow unraveling despite the False Flag MH-17 catalyzed NATO resurgence around Ukraine. The United Nations is now a true reflection of the global flux of power. A vacuum. Any attempt to reform or replace the United Nations at this stage in World History will be an exercise in futility until all the chickens have come home to roost and a de facto stability emerges in the Post War scenario as the various powers that have used the hiatus between the Second World War and the present to re tool, re gear, re engineer and empower themselves, establish alliances and protocols to replace those that have dissipated themselves. Japan could prove one such force to the East if it can overcome hostilities with Korea and break free from US coat tails. Germany could become another such leader in the West if it can break with the "out of zeit" gheist of the USA as indeed Japan should. Germany was too large for Europe and too small for the World before re unification. But the US might have put paid to this competition by drowning Germany with Moslems. In any case, there is no large enough contender for top dog other than China as Russia is held back by ballast and US-NATO animosity while India is held back by its own suicidal Government of India Act (1935) going on Constitution and "Reservations-Corruption" political “Animal Farm” model enshrined therein that predicates its self destruction that has been proceeding in slow motion since 1949. South America and Africa might benefit if China receives the spanking it deserves In the face of this confusion and chaos, the Sunni are proving a formidable wolf in the fold with Mahomet’s Barbaric Atavistic "Theocratic Fascism" wanting to be Empire.

Another Trump supporter in the name of political analyst. Please listen to the tape.

"Just as education has been dumbed down in US in order to make it easy for everyone to be part of the school system," --So Mr. Arvind Kumar, have you been in the classes in US universities where competition is so high as to make sure that there are drop outs , so only the toughest and the most intelligent may survive? Technical education is not philosophy -- where you can twist facts per your whims and fancies , neither is STEM in high school in the US. Your article is a Joke!

Hillary for Israel first,then USA! President Trump will put an end to cross-border terrorism! Hillary running for Obama legacy and seal of First women president! President Obama's failed foreign policy created ISIS and instability around the world! Look at the plights of Middle-East Christians,do you think Democrats don't care for faith and poor peoples life! Refuges are not just Muslims, all life matter! Hillary care for Israel and rich Hindus of America! When it comes to Social Justice and Civil Rights, Hillary is no better than Obama! Hillary wants to be the first president at any cost! That's all folks!

The writer seems to have be a blind Clinton hater. The allegations mentioned here are debunked multiple times. Clinton foundation is a very transparent charity organization whose track record of spend is much better ( 88% of all donation spend on charitable purposes) many other established Charity organizations. It is true that many donated to the charity in hope of getting favors, but nothing has proved to pinpoint blame or none of those donations were to personally benefit Clinton family. Probably Clintons are the first "First family" facing flak for setting up a charity, like all other presidents. Also we cannot view 2016 from the prism of 1992. In 1992, we were a license raj with very socialistic views. Much have changed. A Country's foreign policy is determined by its strategic interest. In 1992, US's strategic interest were not aligned with that of India, now it is . Trump is a bigot, narcissistic, racist bully. No matter who the opposition, there is no justification to support him

Yes.Trump is a narcissistic pig with a rich boy complex , his past sexist ,racist bullys are hard to hear many times but Hilary is a traitor, murderer and a liar. Trump may lack political correctness but Hillary lacks human values. Trump may not be a great leader to some but guess what, no one has ever died because of his decisions. Clinton foundation is under investigation and Clinton lovers love to believe she is innocent , nothing is there in her deleted emails and she will come out unscratched like every time she did. Department of justice is corrupt ,DNC is corrupt , WikiLeaks shows how corrupt they are .There are thousands of videos in internet , youtube that will show how dangerous the Clintons are still Clinton lovers pay more attention to Trump's bully but never to Trumps wonderful speeches with . Hillary lovers love to believe that Trump supporters (almost half of the country ) are all uneducated , deplorable citizens . It is so pathetic for Hillary that after 30 years of experiences in politics ,a lady widely travelled over 120 countries after serving as a secretary of dept of state , an unexperienced Trump is giving her so tough time .Sad . Accept it or not ,Hillary Clinton is cancer of this world .

If "all other presidents" have set up these organizations, why is only the Clintons' getting such bad publicity? Excellent question, "An Indian." Maybe there is a reason. (And most Indians probably see it.)

I particularly like the authors explanation of Indian-Americans. They are mostly very ignorant about most realities. That is really because they are too busy and too disinterested in anything except their own money-making. They believe that money is everything. They don't understand that the political system in the US is taking them for a ride -- taking their money and giving them pleasantries. I reproduce the quote that I liked: "Just as education has been dumbed down in US in order to make it easy for everyone to be part of the school system, politics too has been dumbed down and simplified so that even the most ignorant voter can have a sense of making a choice and being politically empowered. The educated class among Indian-Americans are especially suited to this model as they have no inclination towards politics but have been conditioned to refer to books as the source of their knowledge. They have thus internalised the idea of treating the printed word and assertions they hear from “authoritative sources” as the ultimate truth. They are told through television channels and newspapers that politics consists of exactly two groups, with one group consisting of heroes and the other group consisting of villains, a simplification that they readily embrace. They even use labels like “progressive”, “liberal” and “conservative” to describe themselves, even though they do not really comprehend the meaning of these terms and do not realise that these labels are handed out by politicians."

To all my Indian brothers who are either outside India or are totally blindfolded by the "Clinton agenda", for a matter of fact just an outspoken personality like a Donald Trump can never be harmful to India as much as Hillary can be. Hillary's close aide is a lady who is of the Pakistani origin. While Bill Clinton was the US Prez, India did face lots of friction from Bill Clinton and it seemed as if they were our fathers to judge us on every move! Today's times don't demand US to be totally anti Russia, and look what the US is now becoming into - Anti Russia! Knowing that Russia shares good relations with India, Israel and more than half of Asia, can Clinton really afford this anomisty with them? Besides, her policies are going to be a slow poison for India. Her senator Tim Kane., is a well known Missionary from the States quite renowned for forceful mass conversions across many countries in Asia and Middle East! Sorry to say but all you guys who are based out at US and say that TRump will be more harmful to India than Hillary, can go mind your own business! You guys are distant from the real facts! As a keen observer and an Indian citizen (residing in India), I know for a fact that Trump is a business man and he won't be harmful to India! I don't care about US, if at all Trump is harmful to them, let it be! But Hillary will be harmful to the entire World. And I am sorry I would ideally not want a US President who is a literal threat to India. Let's not forget from where and indirectly by whose actions was ISIS born!

The article is a factual analysis of US policies with particular reference to Clintons international games in detriment to humanity's in particular India's interests. If Hilary has nothing to hide, when then she makes such a big noise against FBI's decision to reopen her using her private email for her official transactions. It is against any code of conduct to use private email for official transactions by a top person like Secretary of State. I congratulate Mr. Suchindranath for his impartial commentary on the U S game plans. USSR would have continued as big challenge had President Breznev aided and abetted its disintegration by his infamous theories of Glasnost and Perestroika reportedly at the instance of US. I refrain from commenting on US citizens of Indian origin for truth always hurts. But I have full confidence in their intelligence in seeing the blasphemous propagnda by Clinton camp against Mr Donald Trump.

Who is the author and what exactly are his qualification to pass judgement on Indian Americans. google doesn't give much more this article.

One of those who are left behind in India as in http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-36273568

who exactly is this author and what are his qualification to call Indian Americans as dumb ? google only returns this article and references to this article.

So the best way to ask for votes is to insult people and call them dumb... right ....

All my friends in USA feel being liberal is the best way to solve all problems, being liberal is now trendy whether you agree with Democrats or not but all you know Democrats are in favor of immigration and open culture. That is wrong. Democrats use this propaganda to win new immigrants votes but then they use to create anti immigration policy. Secondly Clinton foundation is the most corrupted organization and Hilary used her power and political state to raise money for her campaign. Her closest advisor Huma is also another spy. She is her prime advisor for middle east since she was born in Saudi and still has ties there. It is very scary to see who are Hilary's closest allies. anyway Good luck USA.

Indian Americans who have voted or are going to vote for Trump better be ready to be in themselves or their dear ones situation that 57 years old in http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/19/world/asia/alabama-apologizes-to-india-for-police-assault-on-indian-visitor.html?_r=1 was put in, once their Trump God occupies White House.

Today's Hindu outlook is just one thing, and one thing alone - hate all Muslims and everything about them. This article falls in the same pattern. This may not represent the majority's view. But, unfortunately Hinduism is about imposing the will of a few on the great many rest of them - benefit a small minority at the expense of every one else.

Seems like the article is mostly based on half-truths. it would have been nice if the article had some references. Anyway, here're some repudiations with citations-- 1) The article says-- "In 1991, Senator Joe Biden, who is now the Vice President under Barack Obama, introduced an amendment in the bill granting aid to Russia, making the aid conditional on the fact that Russia could not sell cryogenic engines for India’s space programme." a) The President at that time was Republican, although the Senate and Congress was Democratic. So how do you even say that this is an example of republicans being better for India than democrats? b) The MTCR bill sponsored by Joe Biden was NOT targeted to India specifically, but to any former Soviet Union country that would hand over the technology to any rogue nation in return for easy money which they badly needed then. (Sources-- p. 85 of https://www.nonproliferation.org/.../uploads/npr/ozga12.pdf; p.10 of https://books.google.com/books?id=DgwAAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA10...) So blaming Joe Biden for his action and saying a Republican will be better than a Democrat is likely not the answer. 2) The article says-- "the Clinton administration was consistently anti-India and pro-Pakistan. Members of the Clinton Cabinet supported terrorists in India, with Clinton’s Vice President Al Gore using the term “Khalistan” to describe Punjab." This was not a "consistent" effort to term Punjab as Khalistan. Al Gore had used the term in a letter to the extremists and had later issued regrets (Source: http://www.business-standard.com/.../india-objects-to...). I can go on...
