Is the Arrest of Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, a Political Scam?

Just today, I saw the news of arrest of Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam. Before I begin the rest of my analysis, I must comment that I am not that well-versed in Politics because I am usually busy with studies, community work, arts, and writing. However, this news sounds “really bad” to me because it indicates civil unrest. So I read a little about this and jotted down some thoughts.

  1. Nawaz Sharif has been facing abuse ever since he was elected. According to the article, “Nawaz Sharif, Maryam to be arrested: Before polls, a coup creeps up in Pakistan” by Umer Ali, Nawaz Sharif was disqualified in a shady manner after he was elected as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
  2. According to article “We Want Peace, We Are Against War, Says Nawaz Sharif, Puts The Blame On India”, he was planning to work on various democratic concepts including “Peace with India” and “Ending Poverty”.
  3. Nawaz Sharif was arrested in Pakistan on July 13 after he left his unconscious wife in London and traveled back to his people.
  4. According to article “London: Nawaz Sharif’s grandsons released after brief detention”, Nawaz Sharif’s grandsons were arrested by the British over a petty brawl and this case is still under investigation. After further research, I found out that it was Imran Khan’s men from his political party PTI who started this fight. This happened around the same time when these guys were getting arrested.

I think that the arrest of his grandsons—the younger members of Sharif’s family—by the British Police is a big clue in this game. If the British Police can keep the grandsons worried and preoccupied while the Prime Minister and his daughter are being arrested, then it would be easier to hassle the people of Pakistan and the rest of the Nawaz Sharif’s family members. Thus, I feel that I am looking at a political scam that has some international key players as well.

I am also reading Twitter. Some people feel that Nawaz Sharif deserved to be arrested; and, others feel that the media is covering too much about Mr. Sharif’s and Maryam’s arrest and ignoring the killing of 111 Pakistanis that occurred when two bombs blasted during election rallies in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.

So right now, Pakistan is getting bombed; her political leaders are getting arrested; and, some of the leaders are using international authorities to cause further dispute among themselves. Who exactly is orchestrating all of this?

Self-Portrait

I tried drawing one of my pictures today because I was feeling very bored. It worked! My boredom vanished. I have never been formally trained in drawing, sketching, or any other relevant arts; but, I have always been able to draw very beautifully because I have great eyes.

Uhm! I got scared of drawing myself for some reason today. So, I drew a self-portrait that is based on my original picture. I know that some animators create animes by using their own faces and figure. I just learned this trick accidentally when my pencil kept sketching my face slightly differently. I think my fears somehow protect me.

Here is the original diagram and the self-portrait.

Using Lucid Dreams to Scan Genealogy

I have been learning about my Rajputian heritage for a bit. My ancestors fled from India to Pakistan at the time when India and Pakistan were divided. Watch movie “Jinnah” to learn a bit about this particular history of the Sub-Continent.

You must have checked out my post “Rajputs are like Valkyrie” where I briefly talked about how Rajputs are like the Valkyrie clan of the Norse mythology. My first set of research showed me that the Rajputians were a very large genius race whose origins are difficult to trace because of how well they were mixed with other nations and how important it was to hide the reality of this unique heritage from everyone else.

After watching the Valkyrie fight for Thor in movie “Thor: Ragnarok”, I thought about the flying horse of the Valkyrie. I get lots of dreams of horses including dreams of flying horses. The next paragraph is just one of my lucid dreams about riding a horse—all of my dreams are in 3-D and they feel like real life. Most of my dreams about horses are still undocumented. I fell in love with horses when I was a kid; and, I still feel and recognize this bond. I belonged to a well-to-do Pakistani Punjabi family so my father would not let me mingle with the “people on the streets”. Thus, I used to stand next to my room’s window for hours; and, stare at the horse that was being managed by a poor man because he used it to earn his wages. I still remember being stuck to the window like glue for half an hour or more every other day. Several years after this experience, I can still dream of horses despite living a very busy Canadian lifestyle. Enjoy the thrill of my ever-youthful and psychic lucid mind as I narrate to you just one of my dreams about horses!

The night was dark and my house felt boring since I needed to do something very unusual and exciting. Thus, I rode my dark black horse through the narrow street with strength and pride of someone who was innately aware of this animal’s instincts. I felt his strong body pulsate with youth and life as I experienced the vibrations of his hooves travel through my thighs and spine and eventually touch my mind and heart. I was once again free to experience the rush and exhilaration of my body beating against the wind while seated on this magnificently proud creature. My usual calm self was now transformed into a very wild and unbeatable spirit that only wanted to make her horse run faster and faster.

I researched further today and found out that the Rajputians of Punjab were of Scythian origin.

The overwhelming majority of the population of Rajputana and Gujarat is of Scythic origin, and even a sizeable proportion of Punjab is too. Jats and Rajputs alone form approximately 28 % of Punjab population. [ Ibb.97 ]. Tod holds that Jats are one of the great Rajput tribes, and that both are Getae [ Ibb.97 citing Tod.I.52-75 and 96-101 ] The Jat Rajput ratio is 3:1 in Punjab [ Ibb.102 ] Adding the other Scythic races to the Rajput total yields well over 50 % of the population of Rajputana and Gujarat as Saka. Sakas no doubt dominated in the Punjab and parts of the Ganges valley as well, but they have here been more or less overwhelmed in the flood of Mughalloid (Indo-Muslim) immigration.

According to the YouTube video “Horse Lords: A Brief History of the Scythians” the Scythians who had one of the first horse cultures on Earth were referred to as the Horse Lords. So the horses from my dreams might actually be an indication of my Scythian origin—I say “might actually be an indication” not “are actually an indication” because dreams are dreams and only some of them show the future. My mind is battling between two ideas: 1) If Lucid Dreams can open the future then perhaps they can also open the lineage; 2) But, I do not know for sure how far back it can go to trace one’s heritage although I know that to some extent Lucid Dreams allow for Remote Viewing into a different country.

Saying this, I am going to show you something even more interesting. The Irish are also Scythians!

Now, Magog, as we shall see in Appendix 3, was considered, with Ashchenaz, the father of the Scythian peoples, and the early Irish chroniclers were most emphatic in their insistence that the Irish were of Scythian stock. And there is good etymological evidence for this. The Irish were long referred to as Scots even before some of them migrated to the country that today bears their name, and as Brewer tells us:

‘Scot (is) the same as Scythian in etymology; the root of both is Sct. The Greeks had no c, and would change t into th making the root skth, and by adding a phonetic vowel we get Skuthai (Scythians), and Skodiai (Skoths). The Welsh disliked s at the beginning of a word, and would change it to ys; they would also change c or k to g, and th to d; whence the Welsh root would be Ysgd, and Skuth or Skoth would become ysgod. Once more, the Saxons would cut off the Welsh y, and change the g back again to c, and the d to t, converting the Ysgod to Scot.’ Source: http://www.ldolphin.org/cooper/ch8.html

According to Library Ireland, Odin, name of a well-known character from Norse mythology, was one of the gods of the Scythians. And, the Valkyrie from movie “Thor: Ragnarok” who I think are like the Rajputs used to protect Odin.

Like I think, LOL!

Why You Cannot Negotiate with Trump

Did you notice that whenever Trump appears, he has his mind set about how things are going to be. He sounds way too sure of everything. Watch him tackle one of the CIA Director, Gina Haspel.

Why does Trump sound so stern and so sure? Why cannot people negotiate with Trump properly? Well, I was just reading Chapter 57, textbook, “How to be Successful at Sponsorship Sales” (Allen, S.; 2015).

By aiming high you are more likely to be dealing with someone who can discuss options beyond simply “yes” and “no”… someone who can shape up a deal and not just respond to the situation as it appears at face value. This is an important tactic because if you negotiate at a lower level where only “yes” or “no” decisions can be made, you run the risk that if the answer is not “yes” it will have to be “no” – not ideal circumstances for a win-win outcome.

Decision makers are great at negotiating things and modifying presented ideas so that both parties feel satisfied. I think that Trump never does this because he is not the decision maker but is actually a tool created by someone else.  I feel that someone made him to be the President of America to create drama; and, I also feel that they are butchering his character to appease the world until the countries that are under attack are taken over by America. Its the usual Good Cop, Bad Cop routine that detectives play to make victims do what they need them to do.

Anyways, back to the rest of the subject matter! You must have heard that Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was a business professional who left quite a mark on the rest of the world. Muslim Student Association of University of Alberta has created this document to discuss some helpful details of Mohammad’s (peace be upon him) professionalism. You must have also heard that Trump and some other current business professionals have narcissistic tendencies.  Narcissism is linked to Power and Control, which actually shows not only in behaviour but also in speech.

Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was different because he used to forgive others; establish charity; and, act on behalf of the oppressed. Jenny Dyer’s article “The Only Way to Heal A Narcissist” discusses this concept as quoted below:

We all win when we listen and act.

Whether it’s through charity, educating others, or advocacy, your actions on behalf of others doesn’t just benefit you—it benefits them as well.

Rajputs are like Valkyrie

After lots of self-analysis of my Rajputian lineage and some review of the Marvel characters The Valkyrie (Video, Article), I have realized that they are very similar. That’s because they will both get in the way to protect the ones they have given the pact to. Getting killed while doing something so chivalrous is of no consequence inside their minds. In the movie Thor: Ragnarock, The Valkyrie clan gets assassinated by Hela (see the clip below). This movie was interesting because it shows that the last Valkyrie woman (Tessa Thompson) who survived the battle with Hela comes back to protect King Thor.

Pact is a Pact! I can see why I broke teams of a really bad employer and a very cruel teacher as well as influence of five women abuse gangs—of course, every time I had a small team to help me out. I had really less training and less contacts but I made it happen. I also see now why I once dreamt of riding a winged horse. The dream indicates power and control of physical and supernatural sort.

I Am Like Lucy

Here is what makes me similar to Lucy.

  1. I can ride the Black Wind
  2. My skin glow in the night for some reason
  3. I turn dark in the night sometimes, which means that Dark Giant arrives in its bigger form
  4. I can get snippets of the universe only if I open myself to a given concept
  5. I can heal myself to some extent (post 1, post 2) and I am amazing at finding the help that I need if I fail at healing myself.

Here are two thing that Lucy cannot do.

  1. I react very strongly to weather changes and I can predict them during my sleep
  2. I get dreams that later come true
  3. Some of my prayers get accepted. This includes some very difficult prayers as well.

Now, check out Lucy and you will start thinking that she is my sister. LOL!
