Who Pays for Corruption in Nepal?

The following is a response to an excerpt from Nation Swell from May, 2017, PERSPECTIVE ON POVERTY: A SYSTEMATIZED APPROACH TO IMPROVING HEALTHCARE

"there’s a fair amount of political will and a lot of interest in building a system of universal health care [in Nepal]" says Mr. Mark Arnoldy (salary unknown), Aid Agent at Possible Health

“POLITICAL WILL” with “A LOT OF INTEREST” exists because of resources brought by foreigners trying to engage in and ultimately change Nepal—typically without a mandate from the people themselves. Simply, money piques “POLITICAL WILL” of ruling gangsters—precisely, the people subjugating the country.

Unfortunately, this has been happening in Nepal for 60+ years. Instead of a dazzling Himalayan nation, Nepal is faltering in nearly every way--failing from the corruption, malfeasance and lack of development (ironically fueled by ‘aid’) and all the ills associated with a severe lack of development.


Few of the never-ending troops of foreign invaders, to none, seem to be the wiser as to the ultimate source of Nepal’s unceasing tragedy.

In fact, most foreign agents arrive to Kathmandu with little to no language and culture skills and unwittingly fall for the same old counter-effective strategies and activities that have kept Nepal in a pickle jar for decades. They end up playing into the hands of elite ruling gangsters (necessarily disguised as helpful participants, advisors, assistants, etc.). The deadly paradigm is thereby perpetuated no matter how hopeful the intentions of interlopers.

All the while, foreign agents collect massive salaries (tax-free) and are provided for in ways that elevate them to the very highest echelon of a society that they traveled overseas to change. In fact, the largest beneficiaries of ‘aid’ are the aid agents themselves and ruling gangsters that siphon off funds to become even more powerfully entrenched.

Meanwhile, the unrepresented people of Nepal face lethal suffering due to lack of development, lack of opportunity and chronic poverty and all its horrific ills including poor health. Nepalis are fleeing their homeland in droves for lack of opportunity at home wrought by dysfunctional rulers abetted by endless aid schemes. Most escape to countries rife with human rights issues, especially for migrant workers (including India, Malaysia and Gulf countries—can you imagine flinging yourself into a hard-labour job in these countries?). Over thirty Nepalis a month arrive back to Nepal sealed-up in cadaver bags and who knows how many return with life-changing disabilities. Any doubt about who pays for corruption -- even with lifeblood?

Well, who is to blame? Unfortunately, the aid sector with massive funding and immense power warps “POLITICAL WILL” (including the labyrinthine UN, World Bank, USAID, DFID—full of faceless bureaucrats--and countless others operating in Nepal—too many to keep track of, in fact there is no supervision of these entities overmastering Nepal other than toothless internal reviews, if that. Apparently, changing Nepal is too irresistible for this cadre of well-paid, well-fed farangs. Perhaps it’s the massive salaries, perks and social merit points that help them overlook their twisted effects on a would be paradise and its people!

One thing remains certain, political power of the elite class has held Nepal and its people hostage for centuries. Presently, with money, power and position, the ruling class, underwritten by ‘aid’, ruthlessly wields leverage and power over a long-oppressed people.

This may come as news to aid interlopers -- Nepalis are talented and capable enough to do everything that foreigner operators are trying to do and much more – if given the chance. They know what they themselves want and need most and they know exactly what to do, too. Unfortunately, they don’t have any opportunity at all. They are smothered by a ruling class abetted by foreign entities.

To have a chance, the people need the path cleared. They need cleared out of their way all of the corrupt, non-transparent, dysfunctional, self-serving bureaucrats and elite gangsters—an impossibility when these are the very wrong people that are deeply embedded and their domination is buoyed by foreigners handing over aid funds and thereby greater and greater means to power and control.

The ruling class and the aid sector hold total sway and use it in self-serving ways rather than empowering local people to chase their own dreams with their own talents and capabilities. Again, the biggest beneficiaries of ‘aid’ are aid entrepreneurs themselves and ruling gangsters that siphon off funds and become more powerfully entrenched—all to the lethal detriment of the people.

The people want nothing less than freedom and the right to chase their own dreams and goals with their own abilities and talents. Instead, they have 6+ decades of extra-bureaucrats in the form of ‘aid’ workers intervening and intermingling with the gangsters without knowing any better. They seemingly have an endless amount of time and funding, again, funding going to precisely the wrong cronies as well as their own fat wallets. INGOs underwrite dysfunctional ruling crocodiles and the indefinite tragedy roils on and on and on…indefinitely it seems--have the bad guys won out completely and in the process Nepal has become a failed state?

What will it take for the aid industry to get the message…will it tragically take more suffering and more death?

Boondoggle Destination Nepal...?

Indefinite 'aid' cannot offer or achieve what Nepal needs most: clean and fair governance including open, free markets. 

Does 'aid' fuel more lethal corruption 💀 and deathly dysfunction ðŸ’€...?

Has decades of aid's social engineering destroyed a culture, warping it to a point of no recovery?

"The evil is not in bread and circuses per se, but the willingness of the people to sell their rights as free men for full bellies and the excitement of games which would serve to distract them from the other human hungers which bread and circuses can never appease." -Cicero, Marcus Tullius

Tuesday, September 5, 2017


Unbelievable words from Dixiecrat-in-Chief, Ol' Slick Willy and the US Congress erupts with applause and a standing ovation:


If so-called 'aid' isn't working foremost for clean, transparent, effective governance (what Nepal needs most along with free markets), then is it part of a very lethal system? 

Q: With millions upon millions of talented Nepalese, why is the #aid industry, operated chiefly by foreign interlopers (many of whom know little to no Nepalese language and culture--some do), the most lucrative industry in Nepal?

A: Poor governance. In other words, dysfunctional ruling gangsters abetted by indefinite aid schemes, colluding together (wittingly or otherwise). The result is oppression of millions upon millions of talented Nepalese.

Aid-Ridden Haiti and Beyond

Sadly, from years of observation in aid-ridden Nepal, this article on extreme malfeasance by aid agents in Haiti is more the norm than exception in the world of aid and development.
Aid industry workers and ruling gangsters typically profit the most from often deathly interventions (particularly lethal due to the overwhelming oppression of people and the pox of chronic poverty and all its ills including lack of hygiene and health care, disease and premature death, lack of education and opportunity, migration abroad to exploitative work and even slavery and so on--people are dying for want of clean, transparent rule of law).

The aid industry's highly compensated, self-serving social engineering has been warping societies for the worst while their personal bank accounts become swollen with tax-free pelf and they rack up merit points on social media. 

"Aid undermines what poor people need most, effective, transparent government." -Nobel Prizewinner in Economic Sciences 2015, A. Deaton

"Development isn't a matter of 'experts', it's a matter of human rights." -W. Easterly, New York University Development Research Institute

“The incompetence is mind numbing...The UN/INGO people I encountered were frequently out of touch…anachronistic in their thinking at best and arrogant and incompetent at worst.There is NO accountability in the UN system or international humanitarian system.
[The local people] wanted to help themselves...they are experiencing UN/INGO fatigue...” -Chelsea Clinton, excerpted from a letter to her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, reporting on the state of humanitarian intervention and foreign aid in Haiti after the earthquake of 2010.

-Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan
-Billary's mentor was R.C. Byrd, US Senator (Democrat) 1959-2010 and KKK Grand Wizard (Bill Clinton gave Byrd's eulogy and Hillary referred to him as 'friend and mentor')
-Democrats wrote the Jim Crow code

Trump's Unethical Aid Cuts?

The following is my response to the article, Trump's Unethical Aid Cuts, by Peter Singer on 11th July, 2017 published by Project Syndicate:

Hasn't indefinite 'aid' devastated Haiti, Nepal and many other countries, including much of the African continent?

It typically puts power, money, leverage and control into the hands of precisely the wrong, self-serving crocodiles looking after, no surprises, themselves while cannibalizing their own people and countries.

Often the biggest beneficiaries of 'aid' include aid agents themselves--donor darlings living in the top echelons of the societies they aim to convert and to change--all the while virtue signalling on social media and the greater world...virtue signalling the 'good' they want you to believe they are doing for a society, a society of which they often don't speak the language or know much of the culture. Do they do it for social merit points and relatively massive, tax-free salaries more than any redeeming societal benefits (which are highly in doubt, in fact the opposite seems to be true)? 

Meanwhile, long-suffering people endure chronic poverty and oppression. 

The biggest issue is governance, the issue from which most if not all of the other problems of development arise. If 'aid' doesn't support good governance, governance that is transparent, then it is likely abetting continued deathly dysfunction. 

As Nobel Prizewinner in Economic Sciences 2015, Angus Deaton states, "Aid undermines what poor people need most, good governance."
Does Professor Singer somehow know better?

Who are these folk with an irresistible desire to travel overseas with other people's money to try to change distant lands, people, cultures and societies which they might know very little including little to no language and cultural understandings?

Professor W. Easterly, author of The Tyranny of Experts, says it even better, "Poverty is not a matter of experts, it's a matter of human rights." 

In other words, people generally know what to do and how to take care of themselves if and when they have the freedom to do so (isn't that what you want for yourself and loved ones, too?). That is, get out of their way and especially stop funding the ruling gangsters who serve themselves foremost and then oppress the regular citizens. 

Wouldn't you want nothing better for yourself than the freedom to pursue life, liberty and happiness without the governing cronies coming in-between you and your hard work, dreams and goals, governing cronies with a proved record of harming the societies they govern?

'Aid' typically reinforces this poor governance directly and indirectly. It abets chronic, deathly dysfunction and has devastated Nepal, Haiti and other countries, including much of the African continent.  

Dambisa Moyo, PhD, author of DEAD AID proclaims it best,"Let my people go!"

'Fast and Furious 8 Is the Biggest Global Movie Opening, Ever (

Have you ever heard of Operation Mockingbird?

The United States Senate investigative committee led by Idaho Senator Frank Church and officially titled “Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities” uncovered disturbing evidence concerning Operation Mockingbird and delivered the following conclusion:

"The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets…. In examining the CIA’s past and present use of the U.S. media, the Committee finds two reasons for concern. The first is the potential, inherent in covert media operations, for manipulating or incidentally misleading the American public. The second is the damage to the credibility and independence of a free press which may be caused by covert relationships with the U.S. journalists and media organizations.”

This assessment is more than forty years old. Imagine the dangerous advancements in stealth and deception since that time.

Even more alarming are President Truman's damning words about the anti-democratic syndicate that he helped set up-- 

"I think [the creation of the CIA] was a mistake. And if I'd known what was going to happen, I never would have done it.
Why, they've got an organization over there in Virginia now that is practically the equal of the Pentagon in many ways. And I think I've told you, one Pentagon is one too many.
Now, as nearly as I can make out, those fellows in the CIA don't just report on wars and the like, they go out and make their own, and there's nobody to keep track of what they're up to. They spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble...They've become ... it's become a government all of its own and all secret. They don't have to account to anybody.
That's a very dangerous thing in a democratic society, and it's got to be put a stop to. The people have got a right to know what those birds are up to. can't do any housecleaning because everything that goes on is a damn secret... Secrecy and a free, democratic government don't mix."

Exploiting poverty to extract wealth (and social status through Virtue Signaling, e.g., ‘look at me Fakebook friends – here in Nepal for 'Disaster Recovery')?

Nepal is failing through indefinite aid and not in spite of it. This Himalayan nation needs freedom from crocodilian ruling cronies, cancerous bureaucrats and an interfering aid cadre. They are abetting each other and are the biggest beneficiaries of the ‘aid’ they promote and that oozes into and through their offices, hands and pockets with but a trickle if anything left remaining for the people for whom it was targeted. The general population is suffering for lack of opportunity with chronic poverty and a host of other ills and lethal side-effects of dysfunction, corruption and malfeasance.

"The rich have markets, the poor have [cannibalistic, dysfunctional] bureaucrats [abetted by self-serving, deadbeat donor darlings]" -W. Easterly, Researcher of Development Economics, NYU, author of The Tyranny of Experts

Time for a Nexit from the crony ruling class and deadbeat donor darlings? The crony socialism of Nepal’s aid paradigm in collusion with the ruling class gangsters has failed on a massive scale causing enduring harm. Hasn’t six-plus decades of indefinite aid brought enough devastation to the people and culture of Nepal (even more than war, even more than natural disasters)?

Aid entrepreneurs, especially ones without language and culture skills, please consider ceasing and desisting. “Let my people go!” cries Dr. Dambisa Moyo, author of Dead Aid, about indefinite aid in her home country of Zambia.

Can the ghastly destruction of a people, culture and country abetted by indefinite 'aid' intervention by foreign donor darlings continue much longer without total collapse after decades of misguided 'aid' and centuries of ruling class domination (i.e., caste apartheid) that the 'aid' abets?

"Do not go abroad to slay dragons that you don't understand" -John Quincy Adams, 6th US President

“Aid undermines what poor people need most: effective government.” -Angus Deaton, Nobel Prizewinner in Economic Sciences, 2015

“The problem of poverty is not a shortage of experts. It’s a shortage of rights...the most important factor in lifting people out of poverty is allowing free markets and entrepreneurship to flourish...when there's an environment of universal rights for poor people, for citizens of a society, then that does indeed make technical solutions happen." -William Easterly, Ph.D., New York University Professor of Economics, author of The Tyranny of Experts

-Chelsea Clinton, excerpted from a letter to her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, reporting on the state of humanitarian intervention and foreign aid in Haiti after the earthquake of 2010.

Nepal is not different and perhaps even worse off after six decades of indefinite aid that has devastated the people of Nepal, devastated the economy and the country more than any war or natural disaster.
Since the quakes of 2015 the ruling cronies and aid agents have only consolidated power -- meanwhile the real people of Nepal endure chronic poverty and endless suffering.
The people and culture are dying. Dozens of Nepalis return from perilous migrant work abroad every month in body bags for lack of opportunity in Nepal, lack of opportunity and jobs that begins with corruption in the ruling gang aided and abetted by an indefinite aid paradigm.
The ruling class cronies and aid agents are the biggest beneficiaries of 'aid'. Most aid agents have little to no language skills and scant cultural understanding. Still, they typically enjoy a lifestyle in the top echelon of the society they traveled overseas to change.

Heavens to Murgatroyd!

From Reuters news-wire: Obama Administration Sales to Saudi Arabia Top $115 Billion

Arming Saudi Arabia(gasp) – a monarchy cum totalitarian dictatorship with one of the worst records on Human Rights (e.g., severe oppression of women, cruel harassment and lethal punishment of homosexual people, persecution of beliefs and practices outside the ultraconservative cohort in command, silencing journalists, smothering personal expression and so on). Currently, they are bombing one of the poorest countries in the Gulf, Yemen, a defenseless nation-- and bombing Yemen with weaponry supplied by Obush et al.
...remember when fifteen of nineteen 9/11 hijackers were citizens of Saudi Arabia (and how 9/11 illogically led to devastating wars in Afghanistan and Iraq)? 

Was President Obama just impersonating a Nobel Peace Prize Winner while arming Saudi Arabia(see above Reuters link) and many others?

From a Guardian article by Codepink founding member Medea Benjamin (

-In 2016, US special operators could be found in 70% of the world’s nations, 138 countries — a staggering jump of 130% since the days of the Bush administration.

-Obama authorized over 10 times more drone strikes than George W Bush, and automatically painted all males of military age in these regions as combatants, making them fair game for remote controlled killing.

-Given that drones account for only a small portion of the munitions dropped in the past eight years, the numbers of civilians killed by Obama’s bombs could be in the thousands. But we can’t know for sure as the administration, and the mainstream media, has been virtually silent about the civilian toll of the administration’s failed interventions.
