Came across this by chance. It's an old 2012 posting of an even older 2005 video of George Galloway addressing the US Senate discussing the Hussein regime and their accusations against him of being involved in supporting their regime.



It's an interesting retrospective on the entire era and Galloway comes out of it looking almost heroic.

George Galloway was friendly with Saddam and kept being a thorn in the side of the British government. They tried to make him look crazy and a lover of dictators. It was a hit job by the government and media.

Looks like the India-Pakistan conflict is getting hot. India bombed a terrorist camp inside Pakistan borders with 1tn bombs, 200-300 casualties according to some sources. There are already some artillery duels in the Kashmir LoC, and India is sending tanks to the border.

I checked, and sure enough, there are elections in India right around the corner. Modi is stoking up his nationalist voting block. Kill a few hundred Pakis, get a few % points in May.

Aparently India lost 2 MIG-21, and Pakistan one F-16. Air traffic over Pakistan 8s bloked, and there is artillery duels mainly in the Kashmir LoC, but also along other parts of the borders. This seems to be a little bigger than the usual scuffle.

The Pakistani tweets are gold.


It would almost be worth learning Hindi and Urdu just to be able to understand India/Pakistan Twitter wars.

Why are Indians using their Mig21s? they have hundreds of new Sukhois with sophisticated avionics.

One Indian pilot captured, according to the twitter of that Pak officer above:

I would say making it so you can drop the debt in bankruptcy would help people like this and cripple (((higher education.)))

RE: Politics & War Lounge
+1 from me. Somebody finally fucking gets it.

Middle Class: "College costs are bankrupting our families! Our children are graduating with mountains of debt, and can't afford a house or a family! We can't have as many children as we want to, because we know there's no way we'll ever be able to give them a good life!"
Left: "We'll nationalize college and make tuition free, like it is in the rest of the world! Then you won't have to worry about your children's future!"
Right: "You just want FREE shit! Don't you know that nothing is free? I paid for MY college tuition! I was financially responsible! If only you were smart, like ME, you'd be a better person, but you're not, so enjoy spending your life debt slavery! Hey... hey wait! Why are you voting for the socialists? Don't you know SOCIALISM IS BAD?! COME BACK!"

When socialism comes to the US it will be conservative's fault, because they were too busy "dunking" and "owning the libs" to actually offer any solutions.

(Takeaway question: How much demand for "free college" would there be in the US right now if tuition was the same, inflation-adjusted, as it was in 1970?)

RE: Politics & War Lounge
My 5min Saturday nigtht solutions for college debt, channeling my inner Orban here:

1- Put price controls on college tuition, $7k-$10k/yr tops, and strongly encourage colleges to refocus their missions on teaching, force them to make massive cuts in administrative overhead and frivolous fat like title IX-type bureaucracies. Set a high percentage of their budget on faculty payroll and essential physical maintenance.

2- Eliminate interest on current student debt, and set maximum interest on future debt at Fed rate plus a small premium, around the same as mortgage rates.

3- Freeze debt payment and interest on the debt of married parents once they have a child, until the child is 16yo for the mother and 10yo for the father.

For example if a couple has a newborn this year, dad doesn't have to repay his college debt until 2029, mom until 2035. No interest is accrued until then. This has for effect of slashing their debt in real terms by about 50%-75%.

No debt breaks for single moms, because they already get welfare.

Kazakhstan's Nazarbayev just voluntarily resigned after nearly 30 years in charge.

Rare to see such cases...if I recall correctly he also sacked his entire cabinet last month because economic growth and other Quality of Life improvements KPIs weren't met.

In the Netherlands today there were elections for the provinces but indirectly also for the national senate (very important). Thierry Baudet made a big big rise, because of which the left is crying.

The center right coalition loses majority in the senate, although can still push through the climate agenda with help of leftist opposition parties.

There were some talking of getting the Left-Greens to form government, right?

The elections concerned the provinces AND indirectly the senate (1st room), whereas the parliament is the 2nd room.

RE: Politics & War Lounge
I was talking to a friend from Washington State the other day on the phone in the midst of the mass shootings that have happened recently.

I don't keep up with gun politics in washington state because I don't live there. But I know the place is painfully liberal in parts like Seattle. But in other parts (rural areas) they're actually really conservative.

The liberals in government pushed through these anti-gun measures and the conservatives fought back. They decided they weren't going to enforce them. They decided it was unconstitutional. So sheriffs across the state have been declaring that they're sanctuary countries/ cities for gunowners--notice there how they re-appropriated a liberal term which refers to cities that don't enforce federal immigration law, for a conservative purpose. It gives me hope that people in the blue states can still make their voices be heard despite the idiot elites in the cities. This sheriff in particular is a shitlord, one of the guys refusing to obey the liberal dictates:





This is a clear example of how grassroots conservative activism, especially in larger areas hostile to you, should work.

RE: Politics & War Lounge
I’m noticing a trend with law enforcement. The best help we’ve gotten consistently comes from Sheriffs offices. I suspect it’s because of differences in who they owe their paychecks to but I’m open to hearing other hypotheses explaining it.


I also have to ask why we want to “fix” student debt? The political left owes a lot of its power to The bloated education establishment both due to having institutional control to push their ideas and by massively subsidizing the whole “useless bureaucrat” class. We’re literally paying countless neon haired drones to write studies pushing insane gender politics on government dime. A lot of activism just wouldn’t exist because of these people being in real jobs
