"but hilary".."not hilary" etc are still the only defense you can bring after close to two years in office.

the rest is all, "this will happen in future, that will happen in future".

DT's only reason to push Iran is to crap on Obama's deal which he has already reneged from and try and get some photo-op like that utterly useless thing with kim. And push up oil prices to help putin. how is this good for india, or even for the US?

It is also funny to talk about deficit, when trump passes permanent tax cuts for corporate and an expiring tax cuts for middle class and puts budget in a bigger hole. and this is touted as taking care of forgotten man whatever. it is just taking low-informed fools for a ride.
It is budget spending including $721 billion for defense which is going to add to the debt. With regard to taxes you keep following the same nonsense from the media without looking at actual figures. US corporate taxes had way too many loopholes. Most of them have been closed and the corporate tax rate is in line with other developed economies. Personal taxes have eliminated many deductions and SALT is now limited to $10K. Come April 2019 more people in the US who earn between $150K-$250K are going to see a tax increase. Even though the actual percentage rate has declined.

People keep following the nonsense media without thinking. Take a step back and look at the larger picture. Parroting the same talking points without using their brain.

Video synthesis for motion transfer. Pretty scary to see what is coming. Using this one can effectively show a person shooting a gun or something terrible. Don't believe anything in the news anymore! Paper on it from Berkeley - https://arxiv.org/pdf/1808.07371.pdf

When believing is seeing

When believing is seeing

Ravi Shanker Kapoor
September 15, 2018,

The protests of intellectuals appear as the fulminations of has-beens rather than the roars of revolutionaries.


Witnessing any gathering of intellectuals, whether it is a Not-In-My-Name protest or a meeting against the legal action against urban Naxals, is quite an experience. The look, the feel, the atmospherics—everything has a surreal quality about it. Having attended quite a few such meetings in recent times, it would be appropriate to make some observations about them.

First the look. Lesser mortals like us (LMLU) wear, or want to wear, good clothes. Men go for Raymond, Reid & Taylor, J. Hamstead, Arrow, Louise Philippe, Van Heusen; women love Nalli, Satyapaul, Manish Malhotra. Intellectuals, however, prefer khadi and FabIndia. The duller the colour, the coarser the fabric, the more depressing the look, the better.

When an LMLU couple is alone, they make love; when an intellectual couple is alone, they discuss “sexual politics”.

When LMLU attend a marriage party, they rejoice in good tidings. Intellectuals, on the contrary, don’t approve of any marriage unless both partners are of the same sex. The normal marriage they view with suspicion, often as a fodder for the perpetuation of patriarchy.

If you ask LMLU, who their favourite film actors and actresses are, they would say Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra, Shah Rukh Khan, Madhubala, Suraiya, Hema Malini, Madhuri Dixit, Kangana Ranaut, and so on. If you ask an intellectual the same question, the answer would be Balraj Sahni, Smita Patil, et al.

I wonder what kind of man would like to take his girlfriend to watch Do Bigha Zameen. So, let’s have a closer look at intellectuals. A quick Google search will give you delectable quotes: “an intellectual is a person who’s found one thing that’s more interesting than sex” (Aldous Huxley); “an intellectual is a man who takes more words than necessary to tell more than he knows” (Dwight D. Eisenhower).

Instead of defining them, however, I would like to focus on their distinguishing features, the most important of which is: while for LMLU seeing is believing, for intellectuals believing is seeing. We perceive phenomena and then come to some conclusion; mostly, experience guides us. But intellectuals know the Truth—yes, that’s how they look at it—and cherry-pick facts to embellish it.

They know before any inquiry into a communal riot that the main culprits are RSS and other “communal” elements. They know before investigating the killing of alleged Maoists that the police version is “full of holes”. In their scheme of things, what they perceive and conceptualise is knowledge; the opposite is a malevolent construct of “false consciousness”.

They know that socialism and communism are good, period. This is the truth that intellectuals stumble upon usually in schools and colleges. Like the first love, they cherish it all their lives, notwithstanding the mountain of evidence suggesting the opposite. The truth is that over 100 million people perished under socialist and communist regimes. For decades, intellectuals all over the world disputed that, rubbishing it as Western or bourgeois propaganda.


The mendacity of Leftist intellectuals and liberals was unbounded. Paul Johnson wrote in The Modern Times: “The famine of 1932, the worst in Russian history, was virtually unreported. At the height of it, the visiting biologist Julian Huxley found ‘a level of physique and general health rather above that to be seen in England.’ Shaw threw his food supplies out of the train window just before crossing the Russian frontier ‘convinced that there were no shortages in Russia’…”

Further, Johnson wrote, “Self-delusion was obviously the biggest single factor in the presentation of an unsuccessful despotism as a Utopia in the making [in Russia]. But there was also conscious deception by men and women who thought of themselves as idealists and who, at the time, honestly believed they were serving a higher human purpose by systematic misrepresentation and lying… The Thirties was the age of the heroic lie. Saintly mendacity became its more prized virtue. Stalin’s tortured Russia was the prime beneficiary of this sanctified falsification.”

Saintly mendacity and heroic lies are the warp and woof of the narrative that intellectuals peddle all the time. They claim to be the champions of individual liberty and privacy, thus opposing the Narendra Modi government’s efforts to link Aadhaar with welfare measures, administrative mechanisms, and money movement. But it was many of these people, big state enthusiasts as they are, who conjured up targeted welfarism; this is how Aadhaar got conceived in the first place. This happened when Sonia Gandhi ruled the country by proxy and filled her National Advisory Council with all manner of intellectuals.

Intellectuals claim that they are the champions of human rights and civil liberties; and they practically act as the over-ground activists of Maoists, the sworn enemies of not just human rights and civil liberties but all that is good and glorious in human civilisation.

Intellectuals claim that they want the uplift of the poor, yet the economic philosophy that they favour, socialism, has been discredited all over the world (if the Modi regime is troubled today, it is primarily because it has been unwilling or incapable of dispensing with the vestiges of socialist structures, but that’s another story). Socialism perpetuates poverty; this reality no intellectual wishes to acknowledge. In Irving Krystal’s phraseology, few Indian intellectuals “got mugged by reality”.

Unsurprisingly, the frequent protests of intellectuals appear as the fulminations of has-beens rather than the roars of revolutionaries.

In one way it's good the creeps of Bollywood are exposed.
I am sure some BIG BIG name will be exposed soon causing a big dhamaaka.
