    A report from a Christian charity has found that Christians are being persecuted at rates not seen since the Cultural Revolution, which lasted from 1966 until 1976. The Cultural Revolution, launched by dictator Mao Zedong, attempted to eliminate the “Four Olds,” which were defined as “Old Customs,” “Old Culture,” “Old Habits,” and “Old Ideas.” The campaign, carried out by organized groups of students Mao called the Red Guards, targeted the adherents of religions, including Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and others. Countless temples, historical sites, books, and priceless historical artifacts were destroyed. Religious expression, which permeated the culture in China during...

    If you look at how reading is taught in the U.S., children are taught stupidly and then some. Every technique that will make reading difficult and unpleasant is employed. To start with, Sight-words are the worst way to start. Instead of learning letters and the sounds they represent, children memorize graphic designs. Rudolf Flesch said that eleven studies had been conducted; all found that phonics is superior. (So the Education Establishment has always known that if you want a society to have low literacy, you will promote Sight-words. And that is what they relentlessly do.) Children who rely entirely on...

    I have a friend who is a retired public school teacher. She is very likeable and in some areas an independent thinker. One day in conversation she brought up the terrible poverty and near-anarchy that prevails just on the other side of America’s southern border. It quickly became clear that she believed America was at fault, that America’s prosperity was somehow the cause of Mexico’s problems. When I asked her what the solution might be, she replied without hesitation that we should get rid of that border, and not stop there but get rid of all borders. Then, she said,...

    One of the first actions taken during Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong’s disastrous Great Leap Forward program was to kill off “four pests”: rats, flies, mosquitoes, and sparrows. The campaign was known as the “Great Sparrow Campaign” or the “Kill a Sparrow Campaign,” but it was officially called the “Four Pests Campaign.” Historians believe this bizarre countrywide tactic contributed to the millions of deaths caused by the Great Leap Forward. Mao believed that he could force villagers into giant communes, and communist officials used coercion and violence to get them to work.

    The Aral Sea, once the fourth largest lake in the world, has almost completely dried up—but it’s mostly a man-made phenomenon, described as “one of the planet’s worst environmental disasters.” Originally, the lake covered 26,300 sq miles between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. However, it’s been steadily shrinking since the 1960s after Soviet irrigation projects diverted rivers that fed into it, splitting it into four, much smaller lakes. Now, only 10 percent of the original lake still exists, according to Scientific American. Recent NASA satellite images revealed its untold destruction, showing that the entire eastern portion had completely dried up. The eastern...

    A man who has been detained unlawfully in a prison in China for years is still being brutally tortured in yet another case of the Communist Party’s worst ongoing human rights violation. Zheng Huiwang has been imprisoned at Baoding prison in Hebei Province since 2008 for merely practicing a form of traditional Chinese meditation, Falun Gong. Since July 1999, practitioners of Falun Gong have been subjected to a brutal campaign at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party, started by then-leader Jiang Zemin. In a new detailed report from human rights group Freedom House, it described the degree of the...

    Ildiko Trien’s charmed and pampered life in Romania was flipped on its head when she was 5 1/2 years old. Her father, who spoke many languages, was a businessman; her mother, a lawyer. Her Hungarian-born family was rich and they owned land. Trien’s father also reared Lipizzaner horses. One night in 1946, four or five men with leather coats and caps barged into their house and grabbed the whole family. The family was planning to escape to Palestine the very next day. “They put my brother’s shoes on me,” Trien remembered. He was four years older. “They were so big.”...

    It’s been nearly 100 years since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution was carried out, placing a communist regime in power of a nation-state for the first time in human history. While the first Soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin, only ruled for about seven years until his death in January 1924, his legacy lasted much longer. After his death, Lenin’s body was embalmed before it was placed in a building in Moscow’s Red Square, known now as Lenin’s Mausoleum, or Lenin’s Tomb. The body has been a public fixture ever since. Now, the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia has called for Lenin’s body...

    Throughout history, intellectuals have been frequent targets of tyrannical regimes to suppress political dissent. But Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong himself boasted about taking it a step further. After the Chinese Communist Party took power in 1949, Mao had instilled a climate a fear and terror. In the late 1940s to early 1950s, he mobilized Chinese peasants to kill off the landlord class, resulting in estimates of hundreds of thousands to several million deaths. In some areas, public trials became the norm and Mao’s politicized peasants became judge, jury, and executioner of the landlord class in China. Amid the repressive...

    The word for today is “classicide,” which means “extermination of a class” rather than ethnicity, race, or religion. The term is aptly applied to an unknown, under-reported period in Chinese history that started in the late 1940s and ended in the early 1950s. Right before Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong took power, a Mao associate in 1948 proclaimed the Communist Party’s intent: “30,000,000 landlords and rich peasants will have to be destroyed.” Mao, unlike the Soviets—who used NKVB/KGB forces to carry out political persecutions—mobilized the Chinese peasantry itself to kill landlords and other perceived privileged classes. It came in...

    A writer who exposed the deaths of millions of Chinese people during the Great Leap Forward says the Chinese Communist Party has released more and more documents detailing the bloodshed and famine. Tens of millions of people died during the Great Leap Forward, former Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong’s pet project from 1958 to 1962—when he thought he could divert rural Chinese farm workers into mass collectives. While most might assume that Adolf Hitler’s Holocaust, or Joseph Stalin’s purges, or the “Terror Famine” of Ukraine, or perhaps even the slaughter of Native Americans in the New World, were the...

    The worst dam disaster in history occurred during the end of Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong’s decades-long reign, and according to some accounts, was at least partially caused by poor planning and corruption. The Banqiao Dam had been built along the Ru River in the early 1950s as part of a flood-prevention and electricity-generation program. Chairman Mao ordered officials to “harness the Huai River.” In 1975, Typhoon Nina slammed the region—Henan Province in central China—with the heaviest rains in history. More than a year’s worth of water fell in 24 hours. On Aug. 8, 1975, it has been recalled, someone...

Bernie Sanders' social media posts for dozens of instances in which 17-year-olds managed to vote in last year's state presidential primary. A commission report found that as many as 70 teenagers in nearly 30 Wisconsin counties voted illegally in the April election. Sanders won the Democratic side of the primary; Ted Cruz won the Republican side. Many states allow 17-year-olds who will be 18 by Election Day to vote in their primaries, but Wisconsin requires voters to be 18 to vote in its.

    “People who harm the name, portrait, reputation and honor of heroes and martyrs” will be held accountable, reported China’s Communist Party-run Xinhua News Agency on March 13, referring to a line added to a draft civil law code. Xinhua also noted that the draft laws would consider children as young as 8 to have “capacity for civil conduct,” down from the previous age limit of 10. An earlier draft contemplated charging mere six year olds with blaspheming the Party’s martyrs. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) guards its history closely, carefully airbrushing events to paint its 1949 overthrow of republican China...

    It's being reported that the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (sounds like something out of Freemasonry) is to review forced disappearances in Communist Cuba.  Since the United Nations has always had either a Socialist or a Communist in its highest position since its inception, does anyone actually think they will do anything but find that Cuba is a veritable utopia, even after the death of Fidel Castro? Of course, the last time Cuba was reviewed by the commission was in 2012.  At that time, the report read, “The rights to life, liberty and security of person...

    Why is the internet celebrating a Soviet holiday? Today marks the one hundredth anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Which is the basis for "International Women's Day." From Wikipedia: On March 8, 1917, in the capital of the Russian Empire, Petrograd, a demonstration of women textile workers began, covering the whole city. This was the beginning of the Russian Revolution. Seven days later, the Emperor of Russia Nicholas II abdicated and the provisional Government granted women the right to vote. March 8 was declared a national holiday in Soviet Russia in 1917. The day was predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement...

Good for him. But what’s so interesting about all the economic-growth naysaying today is that President Obama’s first budget forecast roughly eight years ago was much rosier than Trump’s....

The images of Soviet Army soldiers hoisting the red flag over the Reichstag in May 1945 have been iconic in Russia, and speaking at parliament, he added to lawmakers' applause that the idea is for Yunarmia members 'to storm a specific location, not something abstract'.

    The American Conservative ^ | 9/27/2016 | Rod Dreher
    More from philosopher Ryszard Legutko’s The Demon In Democracy, in which the Polish Catholic academic, an anti-communist dissident, explores the similarities between communism and liberal democracy: The liberal-democratic man, especially if he is an intellectual or an artist, is very reluctant to learn, but, at the same time, all too eager to teach. This trait of his character is in a way understandable once we remember that his nature was considerably impoverished by his turning back on standards of classical and Christian anthropology. He lost, or rather, as his apologists would have put it, was relieved of the intellectual instruments...

    Austin, Texas has been a bastion of progressivism for a long time. It’s kind of like Berkeley or Ann Arbor, only with Tex-Mex thrown in. But there’s a group down there called Red Guards Austin that goes way beyond the usual social justice boilerplate. They’re no snowflakes; they’re preparing for armed revolution. And they’re fans not only of Lenin and Chairman Mao, but also Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, a.k.a. Joseph Stalin. These people are hardcore. This little snip sums up the political philosophy of Red Guards Austin: There is nothing less desirable to and more hated by the state and powers-that-be...

    Hot on the heels of retailers who have halted sales of Ivanka Trump's clothing line in protest against Trump (and free marketing buzz), the tech "resistance" against Trump got its lead from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckeberg who on Thursday posted a lengthy note "rebuking isolationist “America First” sentiment, and touting the merits of globalization and a “global community” working for innovation and progress." In short, the CEO of the "social network", whose business model is predicated upon uninhibited globalization allowing advertisers to reach into every corner of the world with 3 second video clips, is calling for a global government....

    A week or so ago, I sent out the YouTube links to the first 3 Bezmenov videos -- actually, mainly audios -- of the 1985 Atlanta speech by the late Yuri Bezmenov, the KGB agent who defected from the USSR. I put those clips up 6 years ago and just never got back to the necessary editing required to break up his fascinating, excellent and alarming 90 minute presentation. (If you don't recall those first 3, I've included them below as well) Yuri's warnings to the America he came to love are more timely today now that the even more...
  • Lech Walesa Denounces Report Labeling Him a Communist Informer

    A handwriting analysis has determined that Lech Walesa, the leader of Poland’s anticommunist Solidarity movement and later the president of Poland, was a Communist paid informant in the 1970s, according to a new official report issued on Tuesday. Mr. Walesa, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, immediately denounced the report as unreliable and politically motivated, while his supporters insisted that the full picture of his seeming collaboration with the Communist authorities was more complicated than the report suggested. The report was prepared by the state-run Institute of Forensic Research in Krakow, which analyzed more than 150 documents that were found last...

    If the current excuse for an anti-war movement has proven anything, it's that preaching "Death to America" makes for strange bedfellows. Attend any "peace" rally, whether in San Francisco, London or Madrid, and you'll be struck by the seamless melding of what were once wildly divergent causes. Anti-globalization zealots no longer favor bandanas or baseball caps but Palestinian kaffiyehs. Neo-communists and atheists alike revel in guttural chants of "Allahu Akhbar" (Allah is great). And Muslim fundamentalists march brashly in step with homosexuals, feminists, and socialists. With their message becoming increasingly popular in Europe and the United States, all today's fledgling...

    On January 13, Robert González Nieves, archbishop of San Juan, revealed Pope Francis’ role in Barack Obama’s pardon of terrorist mastermind Oscar Lopez-Rivera. Speaking from the Cathedral of San Juan, Nieves announced that although the Holy Father made no public statement of his involvement, he had indeed worked behind the curtain on behalf of the unrepentant, bloody-handed Lopez-Rivera. The archbishop was pleased to say: “I know that there have been efforts made through diplomatic channels. The pope is very aware. We are grateful to the Holy Father for his support.” Papal complicity in this politically charged act received little notice...

    The Communist Party of Cuba has long promoted itself as a champion of Marxist puritanism, condemning social deviants to concentration camps and heavily censoring music and film. Naturally, the government denies the pervasiveness of sexual tourism on the island.

    Biology student Luis Sibira stumbled across the first set of gory remains last November: eight pink flamingos, their breasts and torsos sliced out, leaving their heads, spindly legs and vivid feathers scattered across the marshy ground at Las Peonias Lagoon in western Venezuela. [Snip] There are other signs that food shortages have led to the slaughtering of animals not generally considered meat: giant anteaters, for one. The university investigators - biologists and biology students - say they have kept records to show that dozens of the slow-moving creatures, classified as "vulnerable" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, also...

    New fascism rising in America’s streets and pouring from its colleges and its ghettoes The tale of a country wallowing in economic depression, a third of its people out of work, many roaming the streets seeking something to do, something to eat… someone to blame. They rise up – the college students, the youth, the aimless striking out at hapless targets of their anger which is anyone who does not join their ranks. They throw epithets, punches, stones and Molotov cocktails, setting fire to businesses, homes and even human lives. Their ranks grow, upper echelon organization1 increases, violence spreads and...
