His BJP dominates in Hindi-speaking northern and central parts of India, and is now trying to gain a foothold in the east and south to capture a two-thirds majority.

BJP will never be able to become dominant in the South because it's pseudo-nationalism is seen as imposition of Hindi, and the more industrialized but comparatively less populated Southern states have long been suspicious of national parties that use their taxes to give subsidies to the poorer northern states.

The few remaining Naxals can be captured and sent to China since Xi Jinping is also a believer in Maoist thought.

But the China of today is far removed from the ideals that they are fighting for.

Posted in: England cricket great Derek Underwood dies at 78 See in context

RIP.

For a country that did not have a tradition of producing spinners, Underwood and Jim Laker were names that stood out.

Believe he was part of the rebel South Africa tours team and his career ended because of that.

Paychecks of 40 to 60 thousand pounds for one month of cricket might not be anything out of the ordinary these days, but it must have been serious money in those times so can't really fault those cricketers for taking such decisions.

I first learned about OJ Simpson by watching the late night telecasts of MAD TV in which Orlando Jones played him.

Mad TV used to be an authentic source of information about American society and culture for me when I was a teenager.

Posted in: Muslim leaders in U.S. are 'out of words' as they tire of White House outreach on war in Gaza See in context

some Muslims warning they are unwilling to support Biden even it that risks returning Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, to the White House

There was no 'Muslim ban' under Trump. That's a narrative built up by the other side.

There was a travel ban from certain countries, most of which were majority Muslim. Later on, North Korea was also added to the list, and North Korea might be a lot of things but it's not a Muslim country for sure.

There was no travel ban from 2 countries with the largest Muslim populations - Indonesia and Pakistan.

The Democrats captured the Muslim vote by playing on the fears of Muslims and now their hypocrisy is thoroughly exposed.

The reason for the popularity of Trump is he made a cult with followers who believe everything he states.

Naah that's not the only reason. There are intelligent Trump supporters who understand that he doesn't mean much of what he says. That he is playing to the gallery.

But that goes for the other side too. Most of the politically correct liberals don't believe in what they espouse.

And then there is the fact that Trump gives voice to a lot of things that mainstream politicians are afraid of saying, for fear of losing votes.

How many of the ex-45 staff mentioned in the article are ‘sanctimonious liberals’?

That was specifically for the OP.

Regarding your question, if you go beyond the click bait headline and read the article in its entirety,

Yet the critics remain a distinct minority.

Still, the ranks of former Trump officials opposing his bid are greatly outnumbered by those who are supportive.

Now let's do a similar comparison of fervent Biden 2020 supporters who now say that he is no longer fit for a second term.

For the life of me I cannot understand what good anyone sees in Jupiter.

The sanctimonious liberals who are experts at pretending that they truly believe in whatever they espouse get the shock of their lives when they see minority support for Trump on the rise.

But instead of doing some introspection, they double down on their belief that those who support Trump would either be intellectually challenged or racists themselves. The condescending attitude of the liberals against those who don't share their worldview is the one major reason for the popularity of Trump. As long as the pseudo-liberal racists keep on looking down on those who support Trump, they will continue being surprised as to why Trump has so much of support.

The liberal icon Obama set the ball rolling by roasting Trump during the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011, but the one who laughs last laughs longest.

Posted in: Investigation into Baltimore bridge collapse picks up speed as divers search for missing workers See in context

 If a skipper can't safely navigate something as wide as Baltimore's inner harbor they don't deserve their Master's license.

Typical shifting of blame. Next you will say that the crew should have steered the ship even after power conked off. And it was the local harbor pilot who was piloting the ship when it struck the bridge, not the regular crew.

According to some other reports in the press the ship's departure was delayed two days due to multiple failures of its electrical and main propulsion systems.

Sources? Unless you are making it up.

On the other hand, multiple media reports suggest that contaminated bunker fuel would be looked into as one of the factors of systems failure just a few minutes after the ship left the port.

Why did the ship lose power suddenly after leaving the port. This was no 'electrical systems failure'.

Contaminated fuel is the likely cause, since the ship would have its tank filled to the brim at the port for its 27 day voyage to Sri Lanka.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/us/news/2024/03/27/dirty-fuel-blackout-baltimore-cargo-ship-bridge-collapse/

There were no tugboats accompanying the ship till it was clear of the bridge either. Also the bridge had no barriers or fenders which could have lessened the impact of the crash.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2024/03/27/us/key-bridge-barriers-examples.html

All in all, a failure at many levels. Most of the 'expert' commentators here would love to point fingers at the crew because that would absolve everyone else of responsibility.

Japan was long ago surpassed by one of their own, in Singapore, on virtually every metric.

Singapore is an artificial city state, and there is nothing authentic there. Everything to be seen and done in Singapore can be seen and done within 5 days. Anything beyond that and one will start feeling that one is in a toy country where one is being watched and judged all the time. Sooner or later it will start feeling like a well functioning prison.

And that's not to mention that Singapore is more expensive than Japan.

Posted in: Australia defends its U.S. ambassador, Kevin Rudd, after Trump attack See in context

The below link shows that Kevin Rudd is a sellout -

https://aus.thechinastory.org/archive/kevin-rudd-and-australia-china-relations/

Kevin Rudd is a fluent Mandarin speaker who graduated from The Australian National University with majors in Chinese language and Chinese history.

When he was leader of opposition he had declared 'China literacy' in Australia a national priority.

Rudd’s personal connection with China was often in the media spotlight, such as his friendship with Chinese businessman and Australian Labor Party (ALP) donor Ian Tang and support for China’s greater role in international affairs. Political opponents and pundits attacked Rudd as a ‘Manchurian candidate’, a ‘panda hugger’ and a ‘roving ambassador for the People’s Republic’. Media commentators alleged that ‘fear in the prime minister’s office that his relationship with Beijing could turn into a liability’ prompted Rudd to keep visits to Australia by Chinese officials secret.

All these China loving washed up political leaders will obviously have problems with Trump, and Trump should consider it a compliment.

Immigrants are America's great strength

Legal immigrants who stand in the queue for their green cards just like everyone else, and who are educated and have something to offer to the US. Not those who want to migrate illegally and neither those who undercut American wages.

I'd rather have a struggling immigrant with poor English skills

And how about immigrants with good English skills? Your liberal mask will be off when it comes to certain immigrants with good English skills whom you have previously disparaged as being bigots.

Muslims will vote for Biden before they would vote for the anti Muslim Trump.

Yeah because Democrats have successfully captured the Muslim vote. Not that the Democrats really care about what is happening to the Muslims.

Any sane person of Muslim faith should realize that Trump, who is not afraid of speaking his mind, is less of a danger than the numerous politicians on the left who feign concern for them but will abandon them once the elections are over.

Progressive Jews who have long supported liberal causes like BLM and have also not been shy of criticizing Israel are now facing the full brunt of racism from their own fellow liberals.

Hopefully the next to wake up to the fact that liberals are much more racists than the conservatives will be other successful minorities in the US, who have long voted Democrat but are slowly realizing that its the racism from the left (disguised as fake concern for the minorities) which is much more harmful for them than that from the right.

Posted in: In Germany, the far right is on the rise again. How did it happen? See in context

Meanwhile, in the real world outside of anecdotal bar talk, Germany in 2023 has granted asylum to 82 asylum seekers from Pakistan. "Many" indeed.

My original post mentioned that many migrants from Pakistan had applied for asylum on those grounds, not how many asylums had been granted.

For example,

https://www.ethnologie.uni-muenchen.de/personen/professorinnen/soekefeld/return-to-pakistan/index.html

The link mentions that 32000 plus migrants from Pakistan were found undeserving of asylum between 2016 and 2019.

Leaving the numbers aside, even if one person is able to game the system it shows that the system is not working as intended, and it also gives an incentive for other 'economic migrants' to follow on the path of those who preceded them.

My dad works for the UNFCCC and has been a regular visitor to Bonn for the last 17 years.

He himself has seen how much things have changed, for example the restaurant which he frequents used to serve ham earlier but now those dishes are off the menu. Then women (Turkish immigrants) wearing the veil on the streets.

A bar he frequents has a Pakistani bartender, who told him recently how many migrants from Pakistan have sought asylum in Germany on the grounds that they are homosexual and homosexuals are persecuted in Pakistan. The bartender was laughing that the Germans will one day start thinking that most of us (from Pakistan) are homosexuals.

Posted in: India to begin voting on April 19 in world's largest election See in context

Congress, which has ruled India for 54 of its 76 years since independence from Britain, has sunk to record lows after Modi swept to power and is struggling to revive support.

Congress still has a solid support base of Muslims, but it is unable to appeal to the anti-Modi voters beyond that.

As long as the Gandhi’s hold on to the Congress leadership by playing up their own family's role in history and don’t step aside, they will continue to run their own party into the ground. And there is no other party which has the sort of pan-India appeal and can fill the vacuum.

Sad to see the Grand Old Party which once fought British colonialism in such a state, but they only have themselves to blame.

Indentured servants from India brought the cannabis plant to the island in the 19th century, and it gained popularity as a medicinal herb.

Cannabis is considered 'holy' in Hinduism and is mentioned as one of the 'sacred plants' in ancient Hindu texts. Devotees of the Hindu god Shiva have a strong cannabis culture.

So ironic that India has basically stopped Muslim access to the country due to Hindu nationalism too!

Load of bollocks.

India has the 3rd largest Muslim population in the world, but what does Sunak, a British Indian, have to do with what goes on in India.

Unless he wants to behave like a typical Brit - can't solve their own problems, but first to wag their finger and tell other people how to run their countries.
