President Maitripala Sirisena who contravened the Constitution of Sri Lanka thrice  confiscated his right for  honour and respect of the people.
Posted on February 21st, 2015

By Charles.S.Perera

Maitriplala Sirisena’s first act,  as the President was swearing in a Prime Minister overlooking the Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne already in place, which is  in breach of the  Constitution of Sri Lanka,  undemocratic and inconsistent with his office as the President elected by the people,  therefore  ultra vires .

It is not  whether Maitripala Sirisena honours his pre election agreements  with Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunge, Madoluwave Sobhita, JHU,TNA and SLMC, that counts when he is elected the President of Sri Lanka,  but whether he accepts to uphold the Constitution of Sri Lanka , honour it and respect it, and acknowledge his loyalty to the people at large which  is sine qua non, and above keeping his pre-election agreements which would in any way affect his office as the President of Sri Lanka and service to the people.

With his swearing in as the President of Sri Lanka all personal  agreements he had entered into previously vis à vis his election as the President, become null and void. More so,  as the peoples’ vote to  elect him to that high office is with the condition that his  personal agreements do not  in any way affect his   loyalty and the service  to the people, and   in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka under which he was sworn in.

Ranil Wickramasinghe who he appointed  as the Prime Minister  in contravention of the Constitution of Sri Lanka, is an usurper of the rightful place of the Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne. Therefore  Ranil Wickramasinghe’s appointment as the Pfrime Minister is illegal,  Hence,  the Ministers appointed by the usurper Ranil Wickramasinghe  are holding those Ministerial positions illegally, therefore  ultra  vires.

These Ministers of the Illegal government of an usurper Prime Minster have  instead of performing Ministerial services to the people , are going  out side their duties as Ministers to accuse the previous government for bribery and corruption., and doing their best to accuse the former President and his close collaborators  for  imagined and baseless allegations with a view to take them to court and take away their civic rights or allow the international community to accuse them for war crimes.

They are breaking up families with the most cruel, arrogant  and unsavoury members of the JVP such as Anura Kumara Dissanayake, and Vijitha Herath, and of the JHU Champika Ranawaka and Nishantha Sri Wanasinghe   employed as President Maithripala Sirisena’s  crime investigators.

All these activities are illegal and the President allowing such actions to be carried out by this government which has no legal standing , is aiding and abetting grievous errors to be committed against people respect by the people of the country by false accusations, personal defamations on unsubstantiated  hearsay evidence., and character assassination which the worst of  crime as it is done to bring down a popular  political personality  from the  estimation of the people and make him unpopular.

The people of Sri Lanka on the 8th January, 2015 voted  to elect a President and not elect Ranil Wickramasinghe as the Prime Minister or have a  UNP government in place of the government of the UPFA which had a majority in the Parliament.  Above all, the people did not elect a new President to accuse the former for bribery and corruption, and all  Crime imagined possible to have been committed.

The President may visit India, China or USA and received with great  honour, but what is more important is that the President is honoured and respected in his own country and by his own people, which  however  is not  so evident.

The 58 per cent of the Sinhala Buddhists are being neglected and the people of the country, except those Tamils in the North and the Muslims in the  East, did not expect a government under Ranil Wickramasinghe  which is vindictive, arrogant, and revengeful toward the former President Mahinda Rajapakse very much loved and respected by the majority of the Sinhala Buddhist  and perhaps by a handful of Tamils.

The majority of the  people detest the racist Muslim Assad Sally  and the Tamils of the TNA.  The Sinhala Buddhists  dislike Chandrika Kumaratunga , Champika Ranawaka, Madoluwawe Sobita and Athureliye Ratana, and the JVP band of  investigators of corruption for Ranil’s pseudo government.

The people of Sri Lanka except the Tamils and Muslims when they voted to elect Maitripala Sirisena for a change did not expect to have along with Maithripala Sirisena a set of uncouth  vindictive pseudo Ministers making allegations against their beloved  President Mahinda Rajapakse who lost  by less than 4 lakhs of votes.

On the 8 the January the people did not vote to elect Maitripala Sirisena to have a pseudo Prime Minister with pseudo Ministers  doing what the people do not want them to do.  They can do what they are doing now when they win an election and form a UNP Government ,and not now when there is already a UPFA government, and the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and his pseudo Ministers  are  a Constitutional nonentity..

The Pseudo Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera  has taken the Centre stage and what he is doing is perhaps kept a secret even from the President Maitripala Sirisena. Mangala is a sworn enemy of  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse and every thing he does may be detrimental  to the wishes of the people, covertly aiming to eliminate  Mahinda Rajapakse from Sri Lankan political scene, making the stage clear for UNP to settle down permanently in power.

Of course USA with its most unholy, undemocratic government in the World today, which will never help a developing country to progress  independently towards development and prosperity, has seen  with obvious satisfaction the regime change in Sri Lanka for which they  may have secretly contributed.

USA will therefore  accede to the demands made by the Yahapalanaya Government of Maitripala Sirisena through Mangala Samaraweera, with the ulterior motive of taking revenge from President Mahinda Rajapakse who did not bow his head to the USA and the West.

The former USA Secretary of State Hillary Clinton breaking diplomatic etiquettes visited the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha ( who was in jail for corrfuption), but never came to Sri Lanka. The terrorist friendly American Ambassador for Sri Lanka Robert O’Black may have discouraged such a visit to Sri Lanka.  Now the path is clear and the USA State Secretary John Kerry finds Sri Lanka more civilized with a west friendly puppet government  in place, and has therefore agreed to visit Sri Lanka.

In the meantime Ranil Wickramasinghe insults China delaying taking decisions on Chinese projects, re-examining, and  re-evaluating them.  Sri Lanka has already been accepted into the USA-West orbit.

Ravi Karunanayake -the Finance Minister’s much touted Yahapalanaya Budget did not give the expected relief for the people, and many commodities on which prices have been slashed are those utilised more by the Tamils. The price of rice is on the increase. The promised salary increases have not been received by the public servants and the private sector has been overlooked.

Ravi Karunanayake, who has forgotten his past Cooperative Wholesale  episodes is now more keen on  character assassination, defamation and making continuous false accusations against former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajappakse.  It was reported that,  ….Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa cannot be given equal treatment during CID interrogation because he is now an ordinary citizen and not a VIP anymore.Therefore, he was nonplussed to see the CID visiting Gotabhaya Rajapaksa’s residence to question him,……”

What can you expect  from  this Christgian Tamil  Ravi Karunanayake who during the military offensive against the LTTE terrorists ridiculed the Sri Lanka Armed Forces ?

He little knows that Gotabhaya Rajapakse will always remain a VIP in the hearts of the patriots of  Sri Lanka, while they will be hated for generations to come for what they are doing as just 100 day pseudo Ministers..

In the mean time it has been reported that , …….the  Sri Lanka’s Supreme Court taking up a fundamental rights petition filed against the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has issued notice on him to appear in court on March 31.

A three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice K Sripavan and Justices Priyasath Dep and Eva Wanasundera issued the order after having considered a fundamental rights petition filed by Duminda Nagamuwa, the candidate nominated by the Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) for the January 8, 2015 presidential election…..”

This is how  the Maithripala Sirisena’s Yayapalana is now attempting to vilify, defame, and heap allegations against a much loved former President Mahinda Rajapakse. It is like a dog barking at the moon.

Is this what the voters expected of Maithripala Sirisena when they cast their votes to elect him as the President of Sri Lanka ?

It may have been the intension of the Tamils and Muslims  who voted for him but there was a 58 percent Sinhala Buddhist voters  who did not vote for him and they vehemently oppose all attempts  at making false allegations, mudslinging and  character assassination of the former President Mahinda Rajapakse  who has not fallen from the respect, esteem and affection they have for him.

I have been told that many begin to say that they will not vote for the SLFP if they do not take  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse as their Prime Minister candidate.

All actions taken so far by the illegal government of Ranil Wickramasinghe, elected the Prime Minister in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka are illegal.  Therefore it is time the  President Maitripala Sirisena takes stock of the situation and demand his Prime Minister  to stop all actions that are being taken against the previous government and go ahead with some constructive work beneficial to the country and the people..

The President Maitripala Sirisena had contravened the Constitution of Sri Lanka in taking legislative powers into his own hand and re appointing an already impeached Chief Justice, and declaring the  appointment of Chief Justice Mohan Pieris null and void, and appointing  a new Chief Justice.

The President Maitripala Sirisena  following the instructions of Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunga, Champika Ranawaka  has given into the TNA removing check points, allowing any one to enter into the North, giving 1000 acres of land around Palali Airport for the settlement of Tamils, appointed a civilian governor  and promised reduction of armed forces. He has still not made a statement on Chief Minister Wigneswaran’s resolution on genocide.

President Maitripala Sirisena has also favoured the Tamils respecting his pre-election agreement with the TNA.  He has appointed a Tamil a citizen of Singapore as the Governor of the Central Bank, He  has appointed a Tamil as the Chief Justice (second CJ as CJ Mohan Pieris has still not been  removed in terms of the Constitution),  He also took his presidential oath before a Tamil Jude of the Supreme court.

Was all that to spite the 58 per cent Sinhala Buddhists who did not vote for him, thus sealing his affiliation to Tamils ?

President Maithripala Sirisena can put things right if he were to meet the former President and invite him to accept to be the Prime Minister Candidate of the SLFP.  He would thus be able to do a magnificent job of work as the President of Sri Lanka with Mahinda Rajapakse as the Prime Minister and Gotabhaya Rajapakse as the Defence Secretary and go down history for his services to the country and the people..

    President Maitripala Sirisena contravened the Constitution of Sri Lanka thrice. Since the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and breaching it is considered to be treason.
    Now the present government has open the flood gate of prosecuting their political opponents, so inevitably President Maitripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickremasinghe can expect some legal repercussions once they lose the power. People in Sri Lanka will be very happy to see them in the prison when their terms end.

    OH ! NO NO CHARLES !!!!!

    PRESIDENT MAITHREEPALA NEED NOT MEET FORMER PRESIDENT MR, TO BECOME HIS PRIME MINISTER, I BELIEVE YOU ARE JOKING . I firmly believe you stated this in-advertently. MS SHALL NOT BE THE JOCKEY ON MR. NO*NO.

    WHY SHOULD PRESIDENT MR, BE THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE BACK STABBER ? WHY SHOULD HE.? HE MUST BE THE PRESIDENT AT ANY STAGE, AND THE BACK STABBER SHOULD BE THE PM. PERIOD.

    IN ANY CASE THIS TALK IS IRRELEVANT. IT IS NOT GOING TO MATERIALIZE AT ALL.

    AS HLDM POINTED OUT, THE ****NUGEGODA MAN****WILL LEAD THE COUNTRY IN THE FUTURE AS EXECUTIVE PRESIDENT. Since abolishing The Executive Presidency has proved to be a false flag, and a blatant deception, to the Sri Lankan Nation, to enter into the realms of Governance. Therefore, it will be retained by MR ad Lib, ad Infinitum.

    GIVE ME THY EAR ALL SRILANKANS,*** MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE AND GOTABAYA DO NOT HAVE TO PLAY SECOND FIDDLE TO A BACK STABBER, WHO HAS BREACHED THE SRILANKAN CONSTITUTION, MANY, MANY TIMES, THROUGH STUPIDTY, IGNORANCE OF THE LAW OF THE COUNTRY, AND WITH A DAMNING SENSE OF PSEUDO GLORIFICATION.

    THE LORDS ABOVE AND THE DIETIES WHO LOOK AFTER THIS RESPLENDANT ISLE, WILL ENSURE THAT PRESIDENT MAITHREEPALA SIRISENA WILL BE RESTPECTFULLY, ASKED TO STEP DOWN, FROM THE THRONE HE STOLE BY BACK STABBING. HIS INSANE ACTIONS AGAINST THE SINHALA BUDDHISTS, WOULD BE OF PRIMARY CONCERN TO THE DIETIES.

    MAHINDA RAJAPASA IS A SRILANKA LION. MAITHREEPALA SIRISENA IS A JACKAL IN THE HINTERLAND.

    Every President who assumed office after an election by the people of all political shades were and are guilty of this accusation. The First President after getting elected declared : “I am now the President of all the people and I do not now belong to a particular party. What happened? He did not severe any connection with the UNP. So from there onwards to date every President nominated and contested under a political banner continued and is being continued to patronize the political party of his/her choice. No one cared to contest the “illegitimacy” and the “illegality” of this situation. Only in one instance that the country elected a “GOVERNMENT” from a different political party while the PRESIDENT was from an opposing party. That combination did not last that long.

    The present President who contested from a different political entity opposing the nominee of the SLFP/UPFA has now being made not only the full pledged member of SLFP but it’s “HEAD” too. Prior to that “drama” he appointed a Prime Minister from the Opposition, perhaps relying on a Constitutional Provision, viz. “President shall appoint a leader of a political party, in his opinion, who carries the confidence of the Legislature of forming a Government”. When this was done there was a Prime Minister from the UPFA. What happened to him? Did he resigned or abdicated his position? Then we had a Cabinet of Ministers? What happened to those of that entity? Did they resigned or abdicated their positions?.

    We must not forget the fact that the entire body of “citizens” of the country voted and elected ONLY a “president”; BUT NOT A GOVERNING BODY to GOVERN the Public Affairs of the people. If that was the “SCENARIO”; who is or what is this “PRESIDENT” / “PRESIDENCY” is all about?.

    Considering the above thinking, what would have been the course of action that should have been taken by the then “EXISTING” Government?. However, we found the “legitimate” Government after the election of the present President, “COMPROMISING” and agreeing to work with the President and the “New Government”. So for the present “THAT GOVERNMENT” existed at the time of an election of ONLY a President has “ELECTED” to “ABROGATE” their legitimate right to Govern and nothing can be done at this moment of time, excepting of course, to bring a NO CONFIDENCE MOTION and throw out the present Government of both the President and the Prime Minister and the Cabinet. Are those in THAT MAJORITY willing to that? I doubt. So we continue until April end. That is another MIRACLE?

    Had MR done more work for Sinhalese he would not have lost.

    He WASTED MONEY ON UNGRATEFUL TAMILS.

    They ATE all the goodies and voted against him.

    He removed a Tamil (ex-LTTE) vice president from his party SLFP. He also removed. He appointed many Sinhala and Muslim officials too.

  6. Ananda-USA Says:

    I agree with Susantha that MR should AVOID MS like a PLAGUE, BUT disagree with Susantha in that MR should take CONTROL of the SLFP/UPFA NOW by OUSTING MS from the Party Leadership, EMERGE as PM at the Next General Election!

    Who would TRUST MS, the BACK-STABBER, while the knife he used IS STILL PROTRUDING from our BACKS? Any TAKERS??

    On the 8th January, the Sri Lankans were asked to elect a new President. What they got was , a new Prime Minister from a minority party and 225 parliamentarians changing colours faster than a chameleon. Sri Lanka’s multi party Circus is nearing its 3rd glorious month. The integrity of the local media has hit rock bottom. According to them – We have had 3 new army commanders since 8 January. The former President went prison. The Colombo port project has been approved by the Minister concerned and shelved by the PM. The spouse of a former minister is on the wanted list but no body knows her whereabouts. We have had military coups, floating arsenals, entire government fleets of vehicles gone missing only to be found in the usual place they are garaged. The SLFP has more leaders and spokesmen than members. lamboginies, ferarries, British racehorses, million dollar wristwatches and shoes owned by family members of the former regime are still to be uncovered. Some ministers have already more frequent flyer points than all the FLYSMILE members put together. All this whilst the rest of the world sits back and laughs at this great ” comedy’ that only Sri Lanka can produce.

    PLEASE READ MY COMMENT SLOWLY BUT SURELY. I HAVE NEVER EVER STATED SUCH STERCUS TAURI, ANYWHERE IN THE LANKA WEB. I HAVE ALWAYS ADVOCATED MR TO GO IT ALONE, WITHOUT HANGING ON TO THE VIRUS AFFLICTED, MALIGNANT SLFP. PLEASE GO INTO HLDMs ARTICLE, AND SEE WHAT I HAVE STATED.

  13. Ananda-USA Says:

    Susantha,

    Terribly Sorry if my LANGUAGE got too convoluted in the second part of my statement, to wit:

    “I agree with Susantha that MR should AVOID MS like a PLAGUE, BUT disagree with Susantha in that MR should take CONTROL of the SLFP/UPFA NOW by OUSTING MS from the Party Leadership, EMERGE as PM at the Next General Election!”

    What I meant was:

    1. I agree with Susantha that MR should AVOID MS like a PLAGUE, and

    2. I disagree with Susantha that a new party should be created by MR. Instead, MR should to take CONTROL of the SLFP/UPFA NOW by OUSTING MS from the Party Leadership, and EMERGE as PM at the Next General Election.

    You want MR to create a NEW political party, while I would like him to WREST BACK control of the EXISTING SLFP from MS, and lead it to Victory in the next General Election.

    This should be done with minimal splitting of the SLFP, because the the General Election is TOO CLOSE now to repair any damage caused by a significant split of the SLFP.

  14. Ananda-USA Says:

    Susantha,

    I hope I have CLARIFIED my stand to your satisfaction.

    It was I, NOT YOU, who wants MR to take control of the SLFP/UPFA from MS and contest the General Election as the SLFP/UPFA Leader and candidate for the future PM position!

  15. Ananda-USA Says:

    Susantha,

    While I, like you, want MS to be restored to the Executive Presidency, how can that be achieved?

    MS can be REPLACED as Executive President by MR by

    1. MR contesting the Presidential Election 6 years from now and defeating MS. That will require a 6 year wait until the NEXT Presidential Elections and preventing elimination of the Executive Presidency in the interim.

    2. IMPEACHING MS and ousting him from the Office of President by Vote of Parliament. That requires a valid and compelling cause for IMPEACHMENT, and (I think) a 2/3 MAJORITY VOTE in Parliament.

    3. MR WRESTING control of the SLFP/UFPA from MS NOW, leading the party to VICTORY in the next General Election, becoming the PRIME MINISTER in Parliament and PREVENT MS from eliminating the Executive Presidency by exercising his leadership in Parliament, and RECAPTURING the Executive Presidency in the Presidential Election 6 years from now.

    Now, there is a POSSIBILITY that to PREVENT Option 3 from being exercised successfully, MS would APPOINT a member of the MINORITY party (say, Ranil from the UNP as he has now) instead of allowing MR to become the PM. In that case, the MAJORITY party (presumably the SLFP) in the Opposition can DEFEAT EVERY BILL that comes up for vote in Parliament, bringing the government to a standstill. If MS continues to allow a hung Parliament in which the bills of his minority government are DEFEATED, that would be SUFFICIENT CAUSE for IMPEACHMENT for FAILURE to PERFORM his DUTIES as Executive President and OUST him from the Executive Presidency.

    What path do you propose to bring MR to the Executive Presidency??

    1. MR contesting the Presidential Election 6 years from now and defeating MS. That will require a 6 year wait until the NEXT Presidential Elections and preventing elimination of the Executive Presidency in the interim.

    2. IMPEACHING MS and ousting him from the Office of President by Vote of Parliament. That requires a valid and compelling cause for IMPEACHMENT, and (I think) a 2/3 MAJORITY VOTE in Parliament.

    3. MR WRESTING control of the SLFP/UFPA from MS NOW, leading the party to VICTORY in the next General Election, becoming the PRIME MINISTER in Parliament and PREVENT MS from eliminating the Executive Presidency by exercising his leadership in Parliament, and RECAPTURING the Executive Presidency in the Presidential Election 6 years from now.

    Now, there is a POSSIBILITY that to PREVENT Option 3 from being exercised successfully, MS would APPOINT a member of the MINORITY party (say, Ranil from the UNP as he has now) instead of allowing MR to become the PM. In that case, the MAJORITY party (presumably the SLFP) in the Opposition can DEFEAT EVERY BILL that comes up for vote in Parliament, bringing the government to a standstill. If MS continues to allow a hung Parliament in which the bills of his minority government are DEFEATED, that would be SUFFICIENT CAUSE for IMPEACHMENT for FAILURE to PERFORM his DUTIES as Executive President and OUST him from the Executive Presidency.

    What path do you propose to bring MR to the Executive Presidency??

    “He little knows that Gotabhaya Rajapakse will always remain a VIP in the hearts of the patriots of Sri Lanka, while they will be hated for generations to come for what they are doing as just 100 day pseudo Ministers.”

    Sri Lanka has had four guardian dietiies … the Hatarawaran (Vishnu, Natha, Saman and Kataragama) Deviyo … for millienia.

    Perhaps it should now be EXPANDED to the Paswaran (Vishnu, Natha, Saman, Kataragama, and Gotabhaya) Deviyo now! He has EARNED that devotion from his people!

    Charles,

    I agree with you.

    That is why I pointed out the Three Options to Susantha.

    Under the existing laws of Sri Lanka, there is no way around it other than to install MR as the PM until the next Presidential Election or IMPEACHING & OUSTING MS to precipitate a new Presidential Election, which hopefully MR will compete and win! But, all of that is CONDITIONED on various shenanigans being implemented to GUT the Executive Presidency or deprive MR of his civic rights!

  21. Ananda-USA Says:

    OOPS! CORRECTION!

    But, all of that is CONDITIONED on PREVENTING various shenanigans being implemented to GUT the Executive Presidency or DEPRIVE MR of his civic rights!

    That is why the People Support for MR as demonstrated in the Negegoda Rally is SO IMPORTANT & MUST BE CONTINUED without LETUP!

    Charles every word you wrote there is true but if these traitors to the land do not listen to the public and do things on their own what will be the action we have to take as citizens? When Shirani was dismissed there were so many protests by the black coat criminals, but now why no such protests by anyone against all the illegal appointments done by this Tie Coat traitor Ranil? Appointment of a Singaporean citizen as the Central bank Governor,Appointment of Ministers,removing check points,raiding houses and harassing former President and his former Ministers? People must come out in millions like in Nugegoda Man to show their protest against this evil Govt of thugs.

    I cannot trust MY3 to do anything good on behalf of the people of Sri Lanka. He was just a Grama sevaka Niladhari and a Minister with no experience to run a country as a President. Already he has shown his weaknesses and he acts like a Deputy Prime Minister to Ranil the witch doctor. If he is genuinely love this country he should sack Ranil and take the leadership to his own hands and act strongly. Although he back stab Mahinda still he can trust Mahinda more than Ranil and together they both can do something better than these UNP thugs to the country and to it’s people. We need to do a million march to wake up the President and the people who were blind by the bogus promises by these UNP thugs.

    They have interviewed the Anti-National Forces who ganged up on the majority community of Sri Lanka to OUST their beloved President, who Liberated, Reunified and Developed their Motherland FASTER than EVER BEFORE, by an Electoral Coup-de-Etat engineered by REGIME CHANGE artistes to implant through the backdoor a TRIO of SERIAL FAILURES as Leaders!

    They will reap what they have sown in the Upcoming General Election!

    Absolute CRAP, indeed with FAILED MURDERERS now posing as WAILING VICTIMS! The REAL VICTIMS in Sri Lanka were the majority Sinhala who were forced to tolerate the murderous separatists for 30 years by foreign powers. These powers unleash horrific violence when their own security is at stake, but deny the right to defend itself to the oldest democracy in Asia after 30 years of forcing them to NEGOTIATE with diabolical unrepentant killers!

    To these HYPOCRITES I say …. go NEGOTIATE with the Islamic State, they are relatively moderate compared to the now defunct LTTE!

    Justice is not near, unless women speak FREELY !

    To a regular CIF contributor, Marinated, I would like to say that solidarity is a Global issue of utmost importance , at this moment and if you do not believe me, read the incredible dire tribe from AnandaUSA below. ZERO recognition of reality…. He thinks the LTTE were Men and is shouting to complain against a mostly women’s self defense group, who remain no doubt, absolutely unrepentant (not surprisingly so , really), they were the victims:(((( and surely still are !!!! Just go to Jaffna…. and you would feel like joining Jaffna’s women to stand against men who behave so primitively and yet convince themselves of living in democracy minus the gender equation, like Ananda USA here….

    I honor women where ever they strive for equal recognition, but this CONTENTION by Tim Jenkins that the LTTE was PRIMARILY a women’s organization is an OBVIOUS and EASILY DISPROVABLE Falsehood! Do your research folks to EXPOSE this NUT!

    Democrats: ‘Why we got shellacked in the 2014 elections’

    By Brad Knickerbocker
    Christian Science Monitor

    In a typical exercise for election losers, Democrats have put out a soul-searching report on why they did so badly in 2014. What they need, a party task force finds, is a ‘cohesive narrative’ to convince voters they’re right.

    Whenever a political party losses big in an election, there inevitably follows a period of soul-searching and blame-shifting. So it was for the GOP after the last two presidential elections, and so it’s been for Democrats following last November’s mid-term shellacking in which they lost the Senate and more of the House.

    Believe it or not, the Democratic National Committee’s review of what went wrong last year, released Saturday at the party’s winter meeting in Washington, includes “Victory” on its cover page (“Democratic Victory Task Force”). Still, the overall message is sobering for party members.

    They may have won the White House the last two times out, but it has “suffered devastating losses at all levels of government since 2008,” the report states. That includes 69 US House seats, 13 US Senate seats, 910 state legislative seats, 30 state legislative chambers, and 11 governorships.

    “The circumstances that led to the series of devastating electoral losses did not develop overnight,” the task force found. “Instead they have been building over decades as the political system has been irrevocably changed by the passage of McCain-Feingold and the Citizens United decision. Republicans, in many cases, have been quick to respond to these changes and take advantage of this new moneyed and murky environment.”

    McCain-Feingold (the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act) and the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in 2010 both dealt with campaign financing, and both had the effect of increasing the political power of outside interests.

    There are other reasons for Democratic losses, of course – including lack of a “cohesive narrative,” according to the tack force, which in turn “impedes the party’s ability to develop and maintain a lifelong dialogue and partnership with voters.”

    “So many people can rattle off easily and succinctly what it means to be a Republican,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida congresswoman who chairs the DNC. “The perception of what it means to be a Democrat has really evolved to be a laundry list of policy statements and disparate ideas.”

    The event was a cheer-leading opportunity for President Obama, who bragged about the improving economy under his watch while accusing Republicans of trying to “bamboozle” Americans into believing that the GNP is for the middle class.

    “Here’s our program. What’s yours?” Obama said. “Tell us how you’d help middle class families. Because we’ve got an agenda, and we know it’s working.”

    Democrats need to forcefully speak up for the administration and the party’s values, Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy told the party gathering.

    “Whenever we let the other guys talk the way they talk about our president, about our leadership, about our values, we’re going to lose,” he said, adding that too many Democrats try to be “Republicans lite.”

    The report recommends a multiyear effort to prepare for the next round of congressional redistricting after the 2020 elections, wary of Republican clout in statehouses that will determine the new boundaries for members of Congress following the next census.

    It calls for more financial support and training for state parties in a return to the principles behind the “50-state strategy” promoted by former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who led the DNC from 2005 to 2009.

    The DNC task force included elected officials, party professionals, and such business executives as Google chairman Eric Schmidt.

    Speaking from experience, the Republican National Committee calls the DNC report something other than a path to victory: An “autopsy.”

    “The first step toward fixing a problem is admitting that you have one, but it’s clear the DNC isn’t willing to come to terms with why their party lost in historic fashion last November,” RNC spokesman Michael Short said in quick response. “The reality is their divisive message doesn’t resonate and their liberal policies don’t work. And after years of neglect from President Obama, his chosen heir Hillary Clinton will be inheriting a cash-strapped national party teetering on the edge of complete irrelevancy.”

    Wasserman Schultz acknowledges the GOP’s successful efforts in increasing its political grip at both state and federal levels.

    “Look, I’ll give the Republicans credit. They spent a lot of time and money working on this for years and it paid off for them,” she said. “We’ve certainly recognized that we have some catching up to do.”

    Namaste: I spoke to my Indian Myna in Oz. Rev Ratana followed by Hon Ranawaka were in Oz last year selling Ranawaka Books for the kinder kids and saying why Presidents powers should be reduced which Mahinda has not used. Hon Sirisena has already used those powers. He was attacking Mahinda in indirect way and his fans wanted him run for Prez. A king maker of the island is living there and is above the well known Blasingham. These two may have met this King Maker. Jai Hind.

  27. Geeth Says:

    NMY,
    “Now the present government has open the flood gate of prosecuting their political opponents, so inevitably President Maitripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickremasinghe can expect some legal repercussions once they lose the power. People in Sri Lanka will be very happy to see them in the prison when their terms end.”

    Exactly, the charlatans who violated the constitution, and violating again in near future must rot in jail.

    Sri Lanka Freedom Party reaches several key decisions to form a national government

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 23, Colombo: The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has decided to work towards the formation of a national government with the United National Party (UNP) and other parties based on an agreement.

    SLFP has reached this decision among several other key decisions during a two day workshop held during the weekend under the patronage of party leader, President Maithripala Sirisena. The workshop was attended by SLFP parliamentarians and organizers.

    The President during the workshop has explained that the people at the last election have given a mandate seeking a change and the SLFP should also make certain changes according to this requirement.

    The SLFP has also decided to take more time than the stipulated 100 day period in order to implement the proposed constitutional reforms.

    The party has also decided not to completely abolish the executive presidency, but to limit its powers and to refrain from holding an election until the current electoral system is changed.

    SLFP, not Wimal Weerawansa, will decide on its Prime Ministerial candidate – Rajitha

    222 buses transported people to Nugegoda pro Mahinda rally

    by Zacki Jabbar
    Island.com
    February 21, 2015

    The “Official SLFP” and not small organizations such as the one headed by Wimal Weerawansa would decide on who its prime ministerial candidate would be , a leading member of the party said yesterday.

     Cabinet Spokesman and Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne, who along with President Maithripala Sirisena now wield considerable influence in the SLFP, told the “Sunday Island” that last weeks rally in Nugegoda organized by the NFF leader Wimal Weerawansa and two other left parties calling for former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to be named the SLFP’s next Prime Ministerial candidate would not be able to apply any pressure on the “Official SLFP”. 

    “Who is Weerawansa to decide on who our Prime Ministerial candidate should be? He, heads a very small party, which people normally refer to as Three Wheel Pakshaya . Even the other two left parties who joined Weerawansa in organizing last weeks Nugegoda meeting fall into the same category,” he pointed out.

     When told that a large number of people had attended the Nugegoda rally, the Minister replied ” Do not be fooled by the numbers you see at Weerawansa/Mahinda organized meetings. People were transported in a total of 222 buses to Nugegoda. Even before the last Presidential Election, Mahinda who had enough resources at his command, took bus loads of people to his rallies. But those numbers did not reflect in the final result. The people who attended our meetings came of their own free will using public transport.”

    Senaratne said that when he crossed over to the Opposition prior to the January 8 Presidential poll, only two local level politicians from his electorate joined him. But he continued his mission knowing very well that Mahinda would be defeated.

    “I told my critics that I would win my electorate by around 15,000 votes just as I had done at the previous Presidential Election and it turned out just that way, on Jan. 9.”

    THIS IS THE THIN END of THE WEDGE in DISMANTLING Sri Lanka’s Powerful Armed Forces!

    Gotabhaya ACTED UPON suggestions made by a host of PATRIOTS to OFFSET the cost of MAINTAING a LARGE Sri Lanka Defence Force by using them in National Development work such as CONSTRUCTION of Civilian Infrastructure.

    In that way it would be possible to Maintain Battle-Ready Armed Forces to defend the Nation against ANY & ALL LOCAL & FOREIGN enemies. That is CALLED DETERENCE! Now, that Ran Weta DEFENDING our Motherland is being DISMANTLED!

    Next will come AN EXCUSE that the COST of DEFENCE is TOO HIGH, UNSUSTAINABLE and the numbers of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Coast Guard men MUST BE REDUCED to BALANCE the BUDGET! A self-fulfilling Prophecy since the Development Funds used to maintain them was taken away!

    WHO WILL BENEFIT from This?

    The TAMIL Eelamist SEPARATISTS demanding REMOVAL of Army bases in the North, and the emerging Hard-Core MUSLIM SEPARATISTS demanding the “Return of Land to Muslims” in the East … OF COURSE!

    Aiyooooo Sirisenaaaa …. You are WRECKING the DEFENCES of our MOTHERLAND built as such great COST in BLOOD & TREASURE!

    Sri Lankan government directs thousands of soldiers engaged in labor work back to their regiments

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 22, Colombo: The government of Sri Lanka has reassigned close to 18,000 soldiers who were deployed to work on development projects under the former government back to their regiments.

    The former government had deployed around 18,000 military personnel to work in most of its development projects and most of them worked as laborers.

    Deputy Urban Development Minister Dunesh Gankanda told the media that the objective was to ensure that their jobs were protected and their services were not used for labor work.

    He said that only soldiers required for skilled work such as technicians would be retained in projects and the others will be sent back to their units.

    President Maithripala Sirisena during the election campaign pledged to ensure the dignity of forces personnel by not deploying them for laborers’ work.

    Sri Lanka Muslim party expresses concerns over land issue in the Eastern Province

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC), an ally of the Sri Lankan government has expressed concern over the land issue in the Eastern Province.

    The SLMC has written to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe about the concerns over land yet to be returned to Muslims in the Eastern Province.

    SLMC General Secretary M.T. Hassan Ali has stated in the letter that the Muslims want a solution to the issue ahead of the announcement of general elections.

    The SLMC has noted that the illegal dispossession of land is affecting thousands of Sri Lanka’s citizens in the Eastern Province.

    “This land has been occupied, cultivated and improved over the last thirty years by these citizens. But today they are being forcibly and irregularly dispossessed and denied the ability to exercise their rights to utilize their lands in freedom and without restriction, despite having done so for a very long period of time,” Hassan Ali has stated, adding that repeated representations to relevant authorities have failed to secure return of the respective lands.

    The SLMC has pointed out that the failure to resume possession of, use and enjoy respective lands by the Muslims in the area has drastically affected their lives and those of their families.

    “Thus, these citizens remain denied of their rights and in relation to lands that their families occupied/cultivated/improved for over three decades. This continuous denial of their rights is referable to failure of the authorities to take proper steps and measures,” Hassan Ali has noted in the letter.
