COMMENT: In FTR #’s 941 and 942, we examined Tulsi Gabbard (D–HI), usually described as a “rising star” in the Democratic Party. Of substantively greater interest for our purposes is the fact that she was one of the driving forces behind the Bernie Sanders phenomenon.
In addition to her suspiciously anomalous views on Muslims/Islam, she networks with the BJP of Narendra Modi, a political front for the Hindu nationalist/fascist RSS.
In the above-mentioned programs, we chronicled Gabbard’s profound, long-standing involvement with a branch of the Hare Krishna cult headed by Chris Butler.
In a Huffington Post story about Gabbard and the Butler branch of the Hare Krishnas, the author mentioned that he could find no record of Gabbard having made a public pronouncement of being an acolyte of Butler. We thought this strange, since an archive about the Butler cult contained an embedded video in which Gabbard describes Butler, aka Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa, as her guru.
At the time of recording, we though that “Civil Beat” was a feature of the Huffington Post. It turns out that there is much more to the story.
Civil Beat was carried by the Huffington Post, however it was an early journalistic venture of Pierre Omidyar, whose better known journalistic effort, First Look Media, enfolds The Intercept, the media voice for Nazi fellow-traveler Glenn Greenwald.
Omidyar, as we have chronicled in FTR #889, among other programs, helped finance the rise of Narendra Modi, as well as the Maidan coup in Ukraine. Omidyar is heavily networked with the National Endowment for Democracy and the Agency for International Development. Omidyar’s brutal “philanthropic” efforts are headed by Roy Prosterman, a veteran of the Phoenix program in Vietnam.
The odd inability of the Civil Beat writer to find Gabbard’s easily accessed public announcement of her fealty to Butler is more comprehensible in light of Omidyar’s joint sponsorship of the publication and Modi’s regime in India.
….In 2010, Omidyar launched online an investigative reporting news service, Honolulu Civil Beat, covering civic affairs in Hawaii. The site has been named Best News Website in Hawaii for three consecutive years. On September 4, 2013, Honolulu Civil Beat started a partnership with The Huffington Post, launching the weblog’s latest regional addition, HuffPost Hawaii….
