  • On your Marx: meet the modern-day communists

    No two modern communist parties are the same. In Nepal, the comrades look quite Ocean’s Eleven, purposeful and united, glamorous despite their woolly hats. In Italy, the insistent sun gives them the air of drinkers in a rural bar with an eccentric owner. The reds of the Indian state of Kerala carry themselves with a distinctive authority and have the look of seasoned medics in a run-down but well-used county hospital. The Portuguese communists have an anarchic energy, a bit of versatility, as if they could be plotting a revolution, or opposing fracking. The Russians have a complicated, mournful alertness,...
  • Harvey Weinstein—Shameless Communist Propagandist to Boot

    “One thing is clear, Cubans enjoy free and universal healthcare. They’ve become known around the world not only for having one of the world’s best healthcare systems but for being one of the most generous countries in providing doctors and medical equipment for Third World countries … it seems there’s a doctor on every block” (narration during the Michael Moore-directed Harvey Weinstein-produced “documentary” Sicko).If Saturday Night Live or Monty Python spoofed the Left with the same gusto that they spoof the Right—in fact, if they spoofed the Left at all --what fun they could have with Michael Moore and Harvey Weinstein’s...

    PARIS - The United Nations’ cultural agency will elect a new chief on Friday, seeking someone who can revive UNESCO’s fortunes after the United States and Israel pulled out. Whoever gets the job will need to restore relevance to the agency whose mission to protect the world’s cultural and natural heritage has been hobbled by regional rivalries and a lack of money. After five days of secret balloting at UNESCO’s Paris HQ two former culture ministers, Qatar’s Hamad bin Abdulaziz al-Kawari and France’s Audrey Azoulay, face off in the final vote of the 58-member Executive Board, scheduled for Friday evening....
  • Appeal based on global warming unlikely in activist case

    A lawyer for an environmental activist convicted of targeting an oil pipeline in North Dakota said he doesn't think a judge's decision disallowing the threat of global warming as a defense to justify the crime would be grounds for an appeal. Defendant Michael Foster, of Seattle, said he has not decided whether to appeal his jury conviction to the North Dakota Supreme Court, and part of him wants "to honor the judge and the jury and their verdict." Foster took part in effort on Oct. 11, 2016, to draw attention to climate change by turning off valves on five pipelines...

    A man seen being beaten on video inside the east Market Street Parking Garage on August 12 is now facing a felony charge. He's being charged with one count of malicious wounding. The magistrate had a Charlottesville detective verify the facts in the warrant. Alex Micheal Ramos and Daniel Borden are both being charged with malicious wounding for attacking Harris.
  • Communism: A bad idea even in 1844

    Throughout the 20th Century, Karl Marx’s visage often appeared on communist banners in the guise of a mighty, bearded prophet, the first and greatest in an array of great thinkers that also included Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. So it may be slightly odd and amusing to think of him in his mid-20s living in Paris as the editor of a magazine. Digging into the letters and writings that Marx produced in those years, and the writings of those who knew him, always turns up something interesting—and occasionally something utterly fascinating. The year was 1844. Hoping to unite German and...

     During 1966, paranoia gripped Mao Zedong; he felt he was losing his power and influence in the Communist Party of China. To reassert his political presence, he announced a new Cultural Revolution and unleashed a paramilitary force of teenagers on the country, known as the Red Guard. It was their mission to destroy all bourgeoisie and Western influences in China and to restore the purity of the party that he led during the revolution and World War II. Wearing red armbands, red neckerchiefs, and continuously reading and reciting from a little Red Book of Mao quotes, the groups were...

    We must not stop now. He--as are we--is under attack on a daily basis from the Luciferian Left...and it's now worldwide The takeover of the USA had been carefully crafted for many years. When, then, 57-year-old George Washington was to take office on 30 April 1789, no one in the just-formed government of the United States knew what to call their newly elected leader. Some were even suggesting Monarchical titles. With all thanks to God, those on the side of the still-being-formed Republic chose the title President of the United States. Since that time, however, there have been multiple attempts...

    The “anti-fascists” were busy today, beavering away in opposition to free speech in Ottawa and using slings to throw rocks at police in Gothenburg. It would be useful to step back from the specific actions of these antifas, and attempt to grasp the larger forces at work. But first let’s take a look at what happened today. Regular readers have seen numerous translations here from the Czech and Slovak by Xanthippa, who relocated to Canada from Czechoslovakia when it was a Socialist Republic and the Iron Curtain was still in place. Xanthippa went to Parliament Hill in Ottawa this afternoon...

    Get your popcorn ready, as Terrell Owens would say. Despite the controversy swirling around the Colin Kaepernick-inspired NFL player protests for racial justice, CBS Sports told Sporting News it will televise the playing of the national anthem before Thursday night's Packers-Bears game at Lambeau Field. "The anthem will be live," promised CBS Sports spokeswoman Jennifer Sabatelle. CBS is handling production on the game that will air on CBS Sports, NFL Network and Amazon Prime Video (8 p.m. ET). There were loud boos heard in the home stadiums of the Jets, Cardinals and Lions. Will the same thing happen tonight at...

    What’s the inevitable result of identity-based social-justice welfare? Ranking of race to stomp out racism, just like the end result of violent “anti-fascist” activism is inevitably fascism. A Twitter account called “Beverly Hills Antifa” (which exists to criticize and provoke Antifa) last night tweeted this video from a protest a month ago in Berkeley, showing an escalating argument between two Antifa activists over authenticity. The woman accuses the man of epitomizing “the height of white performativeness.” Only true violence and true DNA matter to The Cause, she instructs, as the young man tries to defend himself by providing a brief...

    My grandmother likes to tell stories from her career as a journalist in the early decades of the People’s Republic of China. She recalls scrawling down Chairman Mao’s latest pronouncements as they came through loudspeakers and talking with joyous peasants from the newly collectivized countryside. In what was her career highlight, she turned an anonymous candy salesman into a national labor hero with glowing praises for his service to the people. She had grown up in the central province of Hunan, where her father was a landlord. She talks about her mother as a glum housewife who resented her husband...

    Kim Jong Un’s officials plucked teenage girls from North Korean schools to serve as the leader’s sex slaves, indulged in a gluttonous lifestyle while his people starved and ordered public executions that turned into horrific shows of violence, a North Korean defector revealed. Hee Yeon, who fled Pyongyang in 2015 and now lives in Seoul, told The Mirror about the years she spent living in constant fear of Kim Jong Un since the ruthless dictator took control of North Korea in 2011. “Despite our privilege we were scared. I saw terrible things in Pyongyang,” Hee Yeon said. In what heinous...

    Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man? Bob Adelmann The decision on Friday to acquit a white St. Louis police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man back in December 2011 predictably set off rioting in the city. It didn’t occur to the rioters that, according to the evidence in the case, Officer Jason Stockley’s use of force was reasonable, to defend his own life against a potentially lethal threat exhibited by Anthony Lamar Smith. It didn’t matter that the judge found that the state failed to prove its allegation...

    Three Democratic members of Congress have been arrested at a protest outside Trump Tower. U.S. Reps Raul Grijalva, of Arizona; Luis Gutierrez, of Illinois; and Adriano Espaillat, of New York, were among a small group of demonstrators who sat down in the street on Fifth Avenue Tuesday afternoon and refused to move. Protest organizers had said prior to the event that the lawmakers planned to get arrested.

    A Turkish assassin who shot and wounded Pope John Paul II in 1981 has said he will deliver a true account of his assassination attempt after he is released from jail, his lawyers said. Mehmet Ali Agca, 52, will be set free on January 18 after spending over 28 years in Italian and Turkish prisons. "I will answer to all of these questions [about the assassination attempt] in the next weeks," Agca said in a letter released by his lawyers earlier this week. He also said that he wanted to visit Rome, meet with Pope Benedict XVI, and pray to...

    North Korea launched another missile Friday, the rogue nation's first missile launch since its massive nuclear test more than a week ago, prompting U.S. officials to issue a sharp round of condemnation. The missile was launched eastward early Friday from Sunan, the site of Pyongyang's international airport. It flew over northern Japan before landing in the Pacific Ocean, according to U.S. Pacific Command. President Donald Trump, who last month vowed "fire and fury" if North Korea ramped up its nuclear threats, didn't immediately comment. However, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called the missile a reckless act by the North Koreans, adding...

    Since the founding of the Soviet Union, modern leftists have been trying to portray Communism as a great thing. We know they’ve succeeded because calling anyone a Nazi is viewed as a heinous charge while calling someone a Communist is no big deal and can even be considered a compliment by some leftists. Walter Duranty, a NYT reporter, got a Pulitzer prize for lying about the mass starvation in the Ukraine in the 1930s. Now that we know the truth, neither the Pulitzer committee nor the NYT want to retract the award. Leftists are so eager to support Communism that...
