    Trump nominates Indian American to replace Kavanaugh

    Northwest Asian Weekly


    Neomi Rao

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is nominating administration official Neomi Rao to fill the appeals court seat previously held by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

    Trump’s announcement came on Nov. 13 during the White House’s celebration of Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. Rao, who is Indian American, was present at the event.
    Trump said he was nominating Rao for the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit — sometimes referred to as the nation’s second-highest court. Rao currently serves as the administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), which is part of the Office of Management and Budget.

Rao currently serves as the administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), which is part of the Office of Management and Budget.
    Some of her earlier writings are replete with the kind of opinions that we've come to expect now that the president* has subcontracted his judicial nominees to the folks at the Federalist Society. From BuzzFeed News:
    In pieces reviewed by BuzzFeed News that Rao wrote between 1994 and 1996 - she graduated from Yale University in 1995 - she described race as a “hot, money-making issue,” affirmative action as the “anointed dragon of liberal excess,” welfare as being “for the indigent and lazy,” and LGBT issues as part of “trendy” political movements. On date rape, Rao wrote that if a woman “drinks to the point where she can no longer choose, well, getting to that point was part of her choice.”


    Rao, in her role as head of the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, has supported the Trump administration’s rollback of Title IX protections for victims of sexual assault on college campuses. These rules would reduce the mandatory reporting requirements institutions currently face on the matter and require live hearings on sexual assault allegations where accusers could even be cross-examined by a representative of their attackers.
    So, that takes care of the "relevance" dodge regarding Rao's college writings. She's moved on to putting those views to work on behalf of an administration* dedicated to enshrining them into policy.


    And then, later, Senator Mazie Hirono opened up an entirely new line of questioning. It began with Hirono's asking Rao about something the latter had written in opposition to affirmative action, which relied on what Rao called "dignatory harm." Hirono asked her to explain the concept. Rao said:
    The term dignity is used by the Supreme Court and other constitutional courts in other countries and that was an attempt as an academic to explain the different senses in which dignity was used in those cases.
    Which is about where they began talking about dwarf-tossing.
    Back in 2011, Rao wrote a post at The Volokh Conspiracy blog in which she defended on libertarian grounds the practice of dwarf-tossing, a popular spectator sport in the kind of bars where Florida Man drinks before going out and doing the Florida Man thing that gets him on TMZ. Basically, Rao wrote, if someone wants to get tossed, it's that person's right to get tossed:
    In a much-discussed French case, Mr. Wackenheim, a dwarf, made his living by allowing himself to be thrown for sport. The mayors of several cities banned dwarf tossing events. Mr. Wackenheim challenged the orders on the grounds that they interfered with his economic liberty and right to earn a living. The case went to the Conseil d’Etat (the supreme administrative court), which upheld the bans on the grounds that dwarf throwing affronted human dignity, which was part of the “public order” controlled by the municipal police. The Wackenheim case demonstrates how a substantive understanding of dignity can be used to coerce individuals by forcing upon them a particular understanding of dignity irrespective of their individual choices.
    The issue is not whether laws prohibiting dwarf throwing, burqa wearing, prostitution, or pornography may be desirable social policy. Rather these examples demonstrate that the conception of dignity used to defend such policies is not that of human agency and freedom of choice, but rather represents a particular moral view of what dignity requires. These laws do not purport to maximize individual freedom, but instead regulate how individuals must behave in order to maintain dignity (and in the case of criminal prohibitions, stay out of jail).
    So, Senator Hirono wondered, how does a defense of dwarf-tossing square with an idea of "dignatory harm"? Rao replied:
    There was an individual, Mr. Wackenheim, who made his living doing that, and he said that this ban affected his dignatory interests. But, in my article, I don't take a position one way or another on these issues.

    If turned out that some mega donor played a role in this nomination/ this nominee convinced MAGA to reverse his stance on the topic of this thread ( http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6733646 ) , would you support this nomination?

    From unconfirmed chatter while back, she was supported by GOP-Jarvanka/Kushner wing ... that wing also tends to be supportive of Dem leaning causes like gun control, NAFTA, abortion etc.

    Judges aren't supposed to determine immigration policy, if she is an activist then I would oppose her, if she isn't an activist then her nomination won't affect that.

    I would need to know a lot more about her on a number of issues to know whether to support her nomination or not.

    Giant IT/Tech companies from India hire 80% or more Indian workers on H1-B visas when Europeans, Russians, Chinese, others are very good at computer programming.

    Looks scam/fraud.

    Perhaps. But there are reasonable simple explanations. Maybe computer programmers from India demand less in pay than those from those other countries do. Maybe those programmers from Europe, Russia, and China have more work available in that field in their own countries than there is in India. Maybe small advantages in those areas are naturally compounded by an additional advantage for a company hiring as much of its foreign labor from a single country, rather than many different ones. Maybe some foothold that Indian Americans got in computer programming years ago created a situation where American computer programming opportunities became a special pursuit for other Indians who were helped in that by those who came here before them.

    And then there's still a more basic question of the numbers you're assuming. Just how much of a supply of computer programmers is there from each of those countries, specifically? Maybe Indians really do go into computer programming at a much higher rate than other countries. Maybe some accident of history led to this. An overwhelming majority of workers in American nail salons are Vietnamese. Thomas Sowell has documented numerous examples of similar marriages between specific occupations in specific countries with specific ethnic minorities there. It's generally not because of anything nefarious.

    After the National Enquirer published Bezos' texts to Sanchez, the Amazon CEO mounted a private investigation into how the Enquirer got its hands on the messages.

    He also posited that de Becker himself could have been involved in the leak in order to "sabotage Mr. Bezos and Ms. Sanchez's love affair," thereby preserving Bezos' marriage to Mackenzie Bezos.

    The most reasonable explanation is you are a schill. Thank you for spelling it out however.

    6,000,000,000 shares sold of 4 companies owned by Anil Ambani

    Creditors sold a total 5.5 billion shares in four companies -- Reliance Power Ltd., Reliance Infrastructure Ltd., Reliance Communications Ltd. and Reliance Capital Ltd. -- leading to a 3-to-8 percentage-point reduction in founders’ stakes in these firms, according to filings. The sale is “illegal, motivated and wholly unjustified,” the group said in a statement.

    Lenders dumped shares of Anil Ambani group companies they held as the value of their collateral plummeted about 126 billion rupees ($1.8 billion) this month, adding to
    the litany of woes plaguing the Indian billionaire.

    Homeless in US: A deepening crisis on the streets of America


    They seem to be almost everywhere, in places old and new, no age spared. Sleeping on cardboard or bare ground, the homeless come together under bridges and trees, their belongings in plastic bags symbolising lives on the move.

    First comes the company "Oracle" and then comes IT workers who join the company after 10 years. The pioneers or company owners must be more hard working.

    Look at first 30 years of Boeing, Airbus etc..... All the employees/workers were Americans and they are hard working.

    Indians could be job takers or undertakers. Companies worldwide are going down.

    $1800 monthly expenses for American man and his wife

    I got this:

    My wife and I are DONE with the rat race. We're ready to quit our jobs and start enjoying life outside of the rat race. We both make good money, but realize it's not worth it anymore.

    We're both nearing 40, have paid off a substantial amount of debt. We now have $125k saved, and our monthly expenses are $1,800 which I think we could reduce a bit further. We're both looking to supplement income by running an online business, or doing work online for passive income.

    The only thing that's currently stopping us is the fear of the unknown. We're both very healthy, but worry about health insurance and not having it. Other than that, it's just general fear.

    PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you. Please. Thank you. Thank you very much. We are here on this very beautiful spring day in the Rose Garden to unveil our plan to create a fair, modern, and lawful system of immigration for the United States, and it's about time.

    (APPLAUSE)

    Only 12 percent of legal immigrants are selected based on skill or based on merit. In countries like Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and others, that number is closer to 60 percent, and even 70 percent and 75 percent in some cases. The biggest change we make is to increase the proportion of highly skilled immigration from 12 percent to 57 percent, and we'd like to even see if we can go higher.

    (APPLAUSE)

    This will bring us in line with other countries and make us globally competitive.

    At the same time, we prioritize the immediate family of new Americans, spouses and children. The loved ones you choose to build a life with we prioritize. And we have to do that. They go right to the front of the line, right to the front of the line where they should be.

    (APPLAUSE)

    America's last major overhaul of our legal admissions policy was 54 years ago. Think of that. So, a major update, and that's what this is, a merit system and a heart system, is long overdue. The millions of illegal immigrants who have come to America over the past half-century are now cherished members of our national family.

    (APPLAUSE)
