    I've received a much-appreciated request to follow up my post about the "Communism at 'Peace'" website ( communiststats.com ), with a direct link to the printable flyer available at the bottom of the home page: http://communiststats.com/peacetimeflyer.html . If by the graces of the webmaster, no one has any problem with my so quickly following up, the link to the flyer is posted here. The hope is that volunteers (anonymous or otherwise) will post the flyers at schools, community colleges, universities, coffee shops (heck...phone poles), etc. to reach those people whose minds haven't yet been tainted. Needless to say, your help...

    Communism at "Peace" ^ | April 22, 2017 | J McCachren
    Those of you who embrace freedom, please help teach the next generation about communism’s horrors. Steer them toward “Communism at ‘Peace’: An Outline of Non-Wartime Communist Atrocities” ( communiststats.com ). Unique demographics are used (e.g., villagers, the religious, homosexuals, landowners, etc.) in a way that personalizes 85 million deaths.. torture.... imprisonments... QUICKLY making them real to even the least engaged adolescents (and as a teacher, I'm very familiar with un-engaged millennials). I've seen and heard these students flinch in repulsion. Your help promulgating this information--particularly to those students who are about to be preyed upon by their professors--would be appreciated...

    The media is downplaying, and in most cases ignoring, the extreme nature of the crisis currently going on in socialist Venezuela under the Maduro regime.  Most of the cries for help are from people begging the international media to cover their plight. Some of the video and photography are stunning as millions of people take to the streets to protest a collapsing economy and food shortages while being met with tanks, guns and rogue militias hired by the government. Some of the targeted citizens appear chosen at random.  Some of the citizens are also desperate and fighting back. Warning –...

    Thanks to a hoax pulled on the Huffington Post. For a distillation of the contemporary left’s worldview, one needn’t look any further than a blog post that was recently published at the Huffington Post: “Could it Be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?” At least one could have turned to this post—until HuffPo took it down. But we’ll get to that shortly. The author, a person going by the name of “Shelley Garland,” a self-declared South African and graduate student in philosophy, argued that it is morally necessary to temporarily deny the franchise to white men. Moreover, at least...

    Within China, entrenched political rivals of leader Xi Jinping share common ground with North Korea’s totalitarian Kim regime, and appear to have been leveraging the threat of nuclear weapons even at the expense of Chinese national security. For years, leaders affiliated with former Communist Party boss Jiang Zemin had a stake in maintaining North Korea’s nuclear threat as a distraction from their own human rights abuses, as well as to tie the hands of their political rivals, according to an expert in Chinese affairs. Today, Pyongyang’s nuclear brinksmanship has made headlines, and stirred U.S. and Chinese leaders into a surprising...

    Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini have become, for many of us today, mere Hollywood villains – generic personifications of evil or (in Mussolini's case) buffoonish authoritarianism. Yet their ideologies were rooted in specific philosophical ideas – ideas which had many respectable adherents in their day. Dictator Fanboys One person who understands this is Jonah Goldberg, author of the 2007 book Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning. Ten years on, the book still holds up. Goldberg argues, provocatively, that fascism shared roots in common with what we call modern liberalism or...

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- A decorated Marine veteran facing a mandatory three years behind bars on a gun charge will not be going to prison, after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stepped in and commuted his sentence Friday. Marine Sergeant Hisashi Pompey's conviction stands, but the penalty is gone. Additionally, a full pardon remains under review. "Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, this isn't April Fools, right?" he said, when we told him the good news. "I don't know how to react. I'm grateful, grateful." As we told you exclusively earlier this week, Pompey was fighting for...

Earlier on‚ the crowd had threatened to loot a local KFC outlet prompting police to barricade the area with vehicles.

    Epoch Times ^ | April 14, 2017
    Thinking of “free love” may invoke Woodstock imagery rather than early 20th century Soviet Russia, but it was the early communist regime that undertook perhaps the most ambitious attempt at unleashing human sexuality—with predictable results. As soon as Communists took power in 1917 in Russia, they began systematically to enact policies following the doctrines of Karl Marx. Their dream of materialistic utopia could be attained “only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions,” Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto. That not only included confiscating “means of production,” like factories and land, but also disintegrating the institution of the...

    A new book that sells the concept of Communism “in the simple terms of a children’s story” has failed to sell on Amazon.com — except in the category for true believers. “Communism for Kids” by MIT Press “unfolds like a story, with jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers,” its Amazon.com page explains. […] Scathing customer reviews give the book a rating of only 1.7 out of 5 stars, with comments noting communism has killed “over 60 million people” and asking, “If Communism is so great why are they selling the book. Isn’t that capitalism?” …

    Venezuela’s crisis combines mind-boggling economic mismanagement, private-sector decimation, the crippling of democratic institutions, the suppression of individual freedom, and widespread human rights violations. Severe shortages of food and medicine coupled with hyperinflation are a daily struggle for most Venezuelans, except for elite government officials, some of whom are facing drug trafficking, money laundering, and corruption accusations. Given that Venezuela’s crisis is man-made, the international community has found it difficult to agree on a unified response. However, Venezuela’s Supreme Court decision to revoke the opposition-dominated congressional authority, and President Nicolas Maduro’s subsequent mandate to reverse it overnight, should dispel any remaining...

    Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities. If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men...

    Before Oprah Winfrey became a mega-star, she was Miss Fire Prevention 1971 and Miss Black Tennessee 1972. You knew that, right? Of the top 10 pageant girls who’ve changed the world, the only memorable ones are Hallie Berry, Diane Sawyer, Vanessa Williams, and Oprah. Being a beauty queen is a substantial platform from which to say something, but most don’t have anything substantial to say. The short documentary “The Crown,” directed by Kacey Cox, is about a pageant winner with the most substantial message in the history of beauty queens.

    Brandishing nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles, North Korea has topped news headlines for the last decade as it has menaced its more prosperous neighbors. Even its closest ally and benefactor, China, has begun to entertain military options as a means of resolving the crisis. Unlike socialist states that either collapsed or enacted limited reforms, North Korea, under the quasi-dynastic rule of the Kim regime, has changed remarkably little in its nearly 70 years in power. While no longer officially following Marxist ideology, Pyongyang has retained a style of totalitarian leadership that resembles past communist regimes at their most inhumane.

    At the closing of their first face-to-face meeting in Florida, President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping enthused about their new-found rapport. “The relationship developed by President Xi and myself I think is outstanding,” Trump said at a meeting in his Mar-a-Lago resort on April 7. Xi added: “We’ve established a strong acquaintance, begun building a kind of trust, and set the groundwork for a working relationship and friendship.”

    The risk of mass starvation in four countries - northeast Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen - is rising rapidly due to drought and conflict, the U.N. refugee agency said on Tuesday. About 20 million people live in hard-hit areas where harvests have failed and acute malnutrition rates are increasing, particularly among children, it said. In South Sudan, where the United Nations declared famine in some areas in February, "a further 1 million people are now on the brink of famine", UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards said. "We are raising our alarm level further by today warning that the risk of...

    Venezuela's move to bar two-time presidential candidate Henrique Capriles from public office for 15 years looked like an unusually brazen blow at the opposition but is just the logical extension of a strategy that has emerged as the last, best hope of President Nicolas Maduro's Socialists for maintaining power. A nearly identical maneuver was used ten years ago to halt the rise of former mayor Leopoldo Lopez, who in polls remains one of the most influential opposition leaders despite being jailed three years ago for his role in anti-government protests. The situation suggests the Socialists may continue to lean on...

    (Washington Free Beacon) — MIT Press is out with a new book that teaches children the tenets of Karl Marx with fairy tales. Communism for Kids, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way. {..snip..}
