India has implemented a citizenship law that excludes migrants who are Muslims, a minority community whose concerns have heightened under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government. The rules for the law were announced Monday. It establishes a religious test for migrants from every major South Asian faith other than Islam. Critics argue that the law is further evidence that Modi’s government is trying to reshape the country into a Hindu state and marginalize Muslims.


Finally some good news!

Hindu Kush Do you know what it means? Slaughter. Hindu Slaughter. A gift from "migrant Muslims". If the Hindus wish ban "Muslim migrants", they have every reason, and it's no business of mine.

In 1947 Muslims got their country- Pakistan. All others Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Zoroastrians got nothing. This imbalance is being corrected by this law. It gives citizenship, does not take it away. For seventy years the ruling Congress Party played vote bank politics. Just like the Democrats play race politics in this country. Modi is putting an end to that. That is the real fear and real dispute.

Can we do that here? “A radical Muslim will cut off your head. A moderate Muslim will hold you down while he does it.”

The Muslim writer of this article has put his spin on the facts. The CAA allows people of any minority religion from neighboring Muslim nations to seek asylum in India if they are being subjected to persecution for their religion. Obviously, Muslims are not a minority in those nations and would not be eligible. What’s so difficult to understand? The US government is being boneheaded (no surprise)

I think there are about a million Muslims in India. I suspect most of them chose to remain in India after the creation of Pakistan. I hope they will not have their citizenship revoked. They are a threat to no one.

That's a really good idea. Another good idea India had to get around the "anchor baby" issue was they replaced "right of the soil" citizenship with: "It was restricted in 1987 to people with at least one parent who was a citizen. As of today, a person born in India is a citizen only if at least one parent is a citizen, and the other parent is a citizen or a LEGAL migrant."

Oh gosh! All the Muslims in India are being discriminated against! Is that a ground under the Biden and globalist Democrat “open borders” immigration policies (scams) to call for them to”surge” (Biden’s word) to the USA borders so that Biden can misuse the “parole” authority contained in the immigration laws, allowing those foreign Muslims in unlimited numbers to gain unlawful entry to the USA to find out in some future court hearing, maybe in seven to ten years, if they might then be found eligible for asylum in the USA?

India has around 250 million Muslims. The ones that they have cause enough problems, India doesn’t need to import more.

In an explosive interview with Martha MacCallum for Fox Nation, Judge said Democrat operatives combed through his well-documented history of alcoholism, something he chronicled in the 1997 book Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk, as a means to blackmail him. “They thought, ‘Okay, if we can get Mark Judge involved in this, we can sink Kavanaugh.

For the longest time, the media played this game of pretending that it doesn’t consist entirely of a bunch of leftist activists who exist to promote their political agenda and attack those of their political opponents. The pretense is wearing thin. And who knew that Ronna McDaniel of all people would be the breaking point? But it’s kind of like the way that the media’s attacks on dishwater liberals like McCain and Romney, portraying them as Hitler 2.0 just because they posed a threat to Obama, helped kill the media’s credibility.

California is dealing with a “substantial increase” in reported cases of tuberculosis, according to state health officials. The California Department of Public Health said the state saw a 15% increase in cases of the bacterial disease last year, from 1,842 cases in 2022 to 2,113 in 2023. It’s a number that officials said hadn’t been reached since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuberculosis is caused by a bacteria that usually attacks the lungs, but can travel through your blood and attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine and brain, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explained.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge was built in 1977 and anti-collision devices like fenders or protection cells were not introduced until the 1980s.

Teens in the tri-state area are getting fake ADHD diagnoses in order to win extra time on the SATs and ACTs. High school juniors enrolled at expensive prep schools have been taken to doctors and phycologists by their parents in order to obtain documentation that says their child has ADHD, depression or anxiety. Ivy League colleges have decided to reintroduce entrance exams, which were previously made optional during the Covid pandemic. An expert told the New York Post that students who have obtained official diagnoses have gotten as much as 50 percent more time on the tests, which can translate into a 200-point increase on their overall score.

I don’t just mean with our economy or the border or rampant crime in our cities, but with our basic grasp on reality itself.
