Com. Dileep is safe and is also giving updates in BRF. But yes, KL is witnessing a very bad time at this point.

There seems to be messages like this doing rounds in WhatsApp:

"Modi's Foreign Trip Cost: <x,000> crores
Shivaji Statue: <x,000> crores
Sardar Patel Statue: <x,000> Crores
<Some other trivial expense>: <x,000> Crores

Relief to Kerala Floods: 100 Crores Only"

I am sure there are many more like these.

Honestly, sir. This is actually blowing my fuse. Led to lot of raves & rants on the Kerala Floods thread on BRF. Even in this time of disaster there is political agenda which is being carried out :facepalm: . The kind of venom which is getting spread on social media by "peacefool" gangs is seen to be believed. Kerala should get what ever funds it asks for, should get every single soldier and military equipment out there and once that is done Modi should get off Kerala and immediately resign". It kind of takes away any sympathy we have for the people in genuine distress when many are playing political games with this.

Let me tell you, once the whole calamity is brought under control please await the financial requirements which KL state would put upto GoI. Their Okhi cyclone relief estimates itself was an indication (it was as if the entire state was hit by cyclone, where as only the coastal area was hit). And you know what the KL Govt. had one grand plan to get some relief funds; by raising the excise duty on liquor from 23% to 27%!!.

Agree on this.
Hearbreaking to see all the mallu folks in my circle just forwarding crap about how Modi is responsible, how Kerala is entitled to get help etc

The venom of the peaceful mallus is a different level and i dont dare to try reading much of it lest BP overshoots

Why are our english media so obsessed with this PC-Nick Jonas engagement? I think this probably is the 2nd headline in the last two days after floods in South India.

We were touring Dakshin Kannada district and Coorg. Seeing the state of the rivers and the consistent rain, we cut short a day early to reach Chennai via Mysore instead of the planned return to Mangalore and take a flight back to Chennai. lot of places we had visited got flooded ( Sringeri, Subramanya, Madikeri). madekeri Mangalore got closed, followed by closure of other Ghats one by one.
Mansoon was so beautiful in the Ghats but the fury lying underneath was consealed

I will give the marriage 5 years at the most. She doesn't seem to have a clue what she is doing. He doesn't look particularly smart either.

Blog: Dressed In Indian Best, Priyanka And Nick Had Us At Hello
So much fawning...did not know about the 10+ yrs age difference between the two. Wonder what they saw in each other...anyways, I do hope that both of them (especially the groom) has some sort of pre-nup drafted up if & when the marriage goes South...

Manafort will get jail, might get a pardon - but will be prosecuted again on more charges. Mueller is doing this in stages to make sure that if it's going to be pardon, it will have to be multiple times and not a one shot thing that can be done and buried under other stuff in news cycle. Even for Trump, it will look bad to keep pardoning a guy again and again.

Cohen is naming Trump. This will be in SDNY and no pardon option. Trump may be unindicted, but stuff regarding his family may come up and they don't have the luxury of avoiding indictment.

dark days are coming...folks in sensitive areas, be aware and don't get into political arguments with anybody. a lot of resentment is building up in his base.

Note that Cohen’s legal counsel is none other than Lanny Davis who was advisor, lobbyist and Clinton WH confidant. At one time he advocated the Taliban in Afghanistan and other tyrants and dictators. The New Yorker magazine described him as a buffoon and sleaze merchant in 2012.

Cohen burnt his bridges with Trump. He will never get a pardon and is in real trouble for bank fraud of $22 million. Which he’s trying to weasel out of by being Trump’s fixer. If anything useful comes up, Mueller will be notified, but until now it can be handled by another court. Cohen is being tried in federal court of the US Soithern District of New York. This is not a state court.

Only Manafort and Flynn will get pardons some time early next year.

flynn's already cooperating to fullest extent. pardon or not...it's irrelevant.

cohen is helping with state tax fraud charges that will be brought against trump foundation with possible liability for trump family.

http://fortune.com/2018/08/22/donald-tr ... hen-helps/

A day after President Donald Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight charges in federal court, New York’s state tax agency has subpoenaed Cohen for records relating to the Trump Foundation—at Cohen’s prodding, according to his attorney.

yes of course :lol: ..you can only talk about some imaginary future because you cannot any more defend the past and present.

i can understand why the low-informed hillbillies and the EJ crowd stick by him...he at least throws some red meat at them now and then to keep them entertained.

not sure what Indian-Americans (citizens and residents) are getting out of him..other than some vicarious pleasures of seeing him crapping on people they hate.

come on mort - do tell what troubles he is trying to weasel out of by ratting on trump.

how long is the line of "these are crappy people who are trying to get out of trouble by making up stuff about trump" going to hold?

Trump serves the purpose of dismantling the Bretton Woods agreement and the general system of international trade where it has favored the EU and China. In this gap period until 2025, India can make leaps and bounds. Trump is needed in the US and Modi is needed in India. Plain and simple. The opposition parties in the US, including the Republicans, are the status quo. In the mean time, the rest of the media circus in the US is nothing but mental masterbation for the Democratic party. At the end of the day they’ve played into Trump’s hand and all but assured his reelection. Enjoy.

No doubt about it. Trump is a WN. Just today he was tweeting about white farmers in SA who have illegal occupied land for generations and expelled native Africans.

this is all some airy fairy predictions. there's no real proof that bringing instability will automatically benefit India, anymore than current system will allow it.

just some unprovable assertions that allows people to just pass hot air as profound wisdom

in the mean time, some real damages are done to indian interests, both inside US and in India.

oil price shocks will hurt us a lot today and lost opportunities from that are real damages, compared to some imaginary benefits of this breakdown of "general system of intl trade".

h4-ead rescinding will hurt a lot of indians as they are probably the biggest group benefiting from that, due to the long backlog on GCs.

There is no instability, it is waking up the usual players. The real instability is the US budget where uncontrolled borrowing and spending to please he both left and right is a real problem - as the US has no cushion during economic decline.

You may call at an unproven assertion; however we know what the status quo will bring. That is proven. We saw how the world was from 1993 to 2005. Ask yourself if all of us would have been better off had HiC assumed command in Jan. 2017?

Iran sanctions are an issue, but so far oil prices are in the low $70s and WTI is <$70.

The future will be that of India, China and the US.

"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.
