In the relatively isolationist fifties US newspapers used to refer to "President Nehru". I believe we have come a long way. Narendra Modi is er.. . the Prime Minister.

I doubt this hyperbole about Muslims being in danger of Modi. However, I travel to India at least once or twice a year and I work with Christian leaders who labor primarily among the very poor and rural peoples. Although Modi may be good for nationalism he has been a disaster for Christians. Modi's nationalism has ushered in a surge of fundamental Hinduism that has specifically targeted the Indian Christian community. He is expelling Christian NGOs that work with orphans and the hungry (Compassion Int'l for example), appointing Hindu fundamentalists throughout his government and this is resulting in a rise in the persecution of the Church in India. Incidentally, one of the ironies of this situation is that Indian Christians are some of the most ardent supporters of the U.S.

3 modelers predict Trump reelection: report 5 replies
Posted by PageTurner 5/27/2019 7:39:14 PM Post Reply
Three modelers are predicting President Trump will win reelection in 2020 based on a combination of economic data and incumbent advantages, according to a column in The New York Times. Steven Rattner wrote that Ray Fair of Yale favors Trump to win based on a model that combines incumbency and gross domestic product growth rates. The model predicted Barack Obama's 2008 popular vote margin within a fraction of a percentage point and got within two-tenths of a point for his 2012 vote share, Rattner, who served as a counselor to the Treasury secretary during the Obama administration, added.

The left, which has been so eager to topple statues of Confederate generals, slave-owning founding fathers such as Thomas Jefferson, even Kate Smith who sang objectionable racist songs early in her career, now has a Martin Luther King, Jr. problem. According to the Daily Mail: Secret FBI tapes that accuse Martin Luther King Jr of having extramarital affairs with '40 to 45 women' and even claim he 'looked on and laughed' as a pastor friend raped a parishioner exist, an author has claimed.

Venezuelan Ambassador to the United States Carlos Vecchio published a video Monday showing the extensive state of disrepair in which a small group of communists left the U.S. embassy after illegally occupying it for days. Vecchio, appointed by legitimate Venezuelan President Juan Guaidó, published a video on Twitter that showed the building full of trash, loose cables, unwashed dishes, and in a state of general disrepair. “This is how the usurpers and invaders of the regime left our embassy in #Washington,” he wrote. “Nicolás Maduro is destruction and corruption. This is why there is urgency for ceasing the usurpation in #Venezuela. A country of progress for all will soon be reborn”:

Greece is headed to a snap election after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras suffered a crushing defeat in European Parliament elections. The vote could come as early as June 30, after the 44-year-old leftist leader admitted the outcome left him little choice. His main opposition, New Democracy, scored about 10 percentage points more than the premier’s own Syriza party. Tsipras has shown himself to be the ultimate political survivor but he will have a hard time staying in the game after such a beating.

A federal judge on Friday night blocked President Donald Trump from tapping into Defense Department funds to build parts of his US-Mexico border wall. In a 56-page ruling, Judge Haywood Gilliam of the Northern District of California blocked the administration from moving forward with specific projects in Texas and Arizona, saying Trump couldn't disburse the funds without congressional approval. The lawsuit that prompted the ruling was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the plaintiffs, the Sierra Club and Southern Border Communities Coalition. Although Friday's ruling does not prevent the Trump administration from using funds from other sources to build the projects, it's a

Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi trying to rev up and motivate President Trump's ace campaign manager whose talents were key to winning the presidency for Trump? Sure looks like it, because here's what the haughty House Speaker did to Conway during yesterday's meeting between Trump and Democratic congressional leaders. Pelosi treated Conway like a maid. The help. A servant girl. The stylist. A makeup girl. The ball boy. The way she treats everyone "beneath" her in Presidio Heights. And something that is going to disgust a lot of people in the U.S., because a lot of us know what it's like to be in that position.

WASHINGTON -- KISS Frontman Gene Simmons dodged questions from the press as he left the White House on Thursday. Simmons was spotted watching President Trump depart from the White House on Marine One. After Trump left, reporters asked Simmons if he met with Trump at the White House. Simmons replied, "Who?" Simmons was also asked what he thought of Trump's job performance in office and he responded, "I think the flowers and the trees are just beautiful." In 2008, Simmons was a contestant on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice when Trump was the host of the show.

Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki recently asserted that his government would never agree to pay restitution for properties stolen from Jews during the Holocaust. This is in stark contrast to other former Soviet members of the European Union, which have passed comprehensive legislation regarding private property confiscated by the Nazis or successive regimes. According to Gideon Taylor, chair of operations, World Jewish Restitution Organization, Prime Minister Morawiecki's statement is "deeply insensitive to Holocaust survivors and their families[.] ...

The presidential election is in full swing. If this were any other year, I’d be working to help reelect the Republican incumbent, hoping he would stay focused on advancing a solid free-market regulatory policy. I served on the campaign team for John McCain in 2008, on the economic-policy team of Mitt Romney in 2012, and on Donald Trump’s transition team in 2016, before I resigned over policy differences.

Gay representation has certainly come a long way from Patrick Stewart and Steven Weber in the classic 1995 gay film, “Jeffrey.” That same year, Patrick Swayze, John Leguizamo, and Wesley Snipes shocked audiences with their hilarious and stunningly relatable performances as urban drag queens taking a long road trip across middle America in “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.” And of course, who could forget Robin William’s heartfelt comedy performance in “The Birdcage”the following year? These movies were promises of societal acceptance as big-name, straight actors played proud gay characters for straight audiences who laughed, cheered, and empathized with them.

Why Liberals Hate Chick-fil-A 19 replies

We ate lunch at a Chick-fil-A today. When we entered the restaurant, the first thing we saw was an empty table that was set up to honor fallen military personnel over the Memorial Day weekend. There was a red rose, a folded flag, an inverted glass and an open Bible, along with text explaining the elements of the display. Click to enlarge:(Snip for photo) Chick-fil-A is unabashedly pro-American. I suspect that is the real reason for the animus that so many liberals bear against the company. There was a time when liberals were generally patriotic. George McGovern is a good example: he was wrong on just

Either Hillary Clinton has a weird sense of humor, or she’s awfully uptight. In a tweet posted Sunday morning, the failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee and former secretary of state complained to Habsro about the approved words list for its game Scrabble. And in doing so, she took some shots at President Donald Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani. “Earlier this month, Scrabble updated its list of approved words for game play for the first time in four years (‘ivesssapology’ and ‘covfefe’ were not among them),” she wrote. “But those changes aren’t yet reflected in the Scrabble app. 👎 Where are we on this, @Hasbro?” Look:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) ate it last week. No, it wasn’t about the Green New Deal, which is a recipe for economic disaster; it was a poorly executed counterattack against…the media. Yep, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is running for the Democratic nomination in 2020, so your whole life goes under the microscope. Y’all know the drill. It so happens that she had quite the legal career as well, charging $675/hour and worked on over 50 legal cases. CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski simply tweeted about this dot on Warren’s resume, which AOC thought was an attack, pulled the trigger, but got face-full of buckshot instead.

On Thursday, President Trump gave Attorney General William Barr the authority to declassify documents from multiple agencies related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016. *** As PJ Media reported in September of 2017, Power was unmasking people at a “freakishly rapid rate.”

As Memorial Day weekend wore on, by Sunday morning Chicago police had responded to the shootings of 21 people, three of whom died from their injuries, officials said. The grim tally was only expected to increase as a shooting Sunday about 6 a.m. in the 1300 block of South Throop Street in Englewood is said to have left two dead and two injured. The shooting was possibly in retaliation for an earlier one in the same neighborhood on West Hastings Street, which also left a man dead, investigators said. Details on that shooting, in which four people were struck, were
