    Yesterday, AT was kind enough to publish the first installment of my submission about anti-Communist movies that were produced by Hollywood. For the second installment, we set the cutoff point at the year 2000, and will review anti-Communist movies with Hollywood connections produced since then. Things have changed in the world of anti-Communist movies since 2000. On the one hand, the Iron Curtain has fallen, and much more has become public, things of which we were previously only dimly aware. This is why there has been a such a spate of anti-Communist movies from Russia and Eastern Europe. So we...
  • Chinese-born Anna Chennault, 94, was behind-the-scenes political force

    Anna Chennault, for many years one of the most visible private citizens in Washington as a Republican fundraiser, writer and Chinese-born, anti-communist lobbyist who dabbled in foreign intrigue after the death of her husband, the renowned leader of the Flying Tigers in China and Burma in World War II, died Friday at her home in Washington. She was 94. Her death, in her apartment at the Watergate complex, was announced today. The cause was complications of a stroke she suffered in December, her daughter Cynthia Chennault said. In her memoir photographs, wearing a high-necked white ao dai, Chennault appears with...

  • Ted Cruz's father equates 'liberal media' to communist propaganda ministries

    The father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said that the "liberal media" in the U.S. has an "evil agenda" that reminds him of the “ministry of misinformation” in communist countries like Cuba. In an interview with radio host Glenn Beck, Cruz said that the media was interested in "destroying what this country is all about.” “In your previous segment you were talking about imagining America,” Cruz said, according to a video clip obtained by BuzzFeed. “I’ll tell you what, it almost seemed like I was listening to what was happening in Cuba during Castro. The very same thing, the ministry...

    Movement to renounce the Chinese Communist Party reaches major milestoneWhen poorly constructed elementary school buildings collapsed in Wenchuan, China, after a massive earthquake in 2008, parents wanted answers. Rather than launching an investigation or tallying the student deaths, however, agents of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) infiltrated the parent groups, broke them up, arrested the recalcitrants, and jailed a man trying to help them. A similar dynamic happened after the poisoned milk powder scandal broke in 2008. The man who lobbied on behalf of the parents, and whose child was also a victim, ended up in jail. Meanwhile, millions of...

    jimmy from brooklyn and NYC Tribune(1986?) | 9/17/2010 | jimmyfrombrooklynsupporter
    Ron Daniels appeared as guest on tv talk show hosted by Sean Hanity this past Wed. He was referred to as a "civil rights activist/attorney", and was embraced(for lack of a better word) by Mr. Hanity. What wasn't revealed, and known by Mr. Hanity for some time, is Daniels participation in the Marxist World Scholar Conference in the mid 1980s. The NYC Tribune quoted Daniels saying "only ballots and bullets will bring New World Order". Expected co-participant, Rev. Alan Thompson, "no showed" that day due to FBI arrest, when he accepted a bag of money from KGB controllers of the...

    Radio host Glenn Beck has come under heavy criticism for citing a book on the air last week written by an anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer named Elizabeth Dilling. SNIP Beck, however, has argued that he was unaware of the author's Nazi leanings and that his discussion of her book does not mean he echoes her anti-Semitic views. ...Beck also highlighted "The Red Network," which describes as a who's who of radical communism, listing approximately 1,300 names and organizations actively promoting extreme leftist ideology... Dilling tied her warnings against communism to Jewish plot conspiracies, spouted anti-Semitic rants and praised Hitler's work...

    Rally designed to support the Ladies in White activists in Cuba After seeing women protesters dragged through the streets in Cuba, Gloria Estefan figured the best way to fight the injustice was to dress in white and carry on the march. The Cuba native is calling on all Cubans in Miami to come out and rally against the Castro government on Thursday in Little Havana at 6 p.m. Estefan called on participants to dress in white, walk in silence and hold flowers in the style of the Cuban group. "Cubans and non-Cubans alike that live in liberty need to take...

    Anticommunist radio fans out there, listen to this and remember when it was mainstream to consider Communism to be evil. Quite a departure from the pop culture of today. At the time this was the most expensive radio drama produced by a major network.

    "Contrary to the government's assertion, it is by no means self-evident that a person engaged in extra-territorial or resistance activities — even militant activities — is necessarily a threat to the security of the United States. One country's terrorist can often be another country's freedom-fighter." * * * It happens that those words were written by one of our wisest federal Judges, John Noonan, who rides the 9th United States appellate circuit. He was deciding, in 2004, an immigration case involving a Sikh militant. We thought of the judge's point as we were ruminating on two current criminal prosecutions on...

    Last night I watched on cable for the first time, The Lost City. It was directed by and starred Andy Garcia. This movie was about a nightclub owner at the time prior and after the takeover of Cuba by Fidel Castro. It was the most realistic portrayal of the Fidelistas I have ever seen and therefore one of the best, if not THE best anti-communist movie ever made which is why it was shunned by Hollyweird. Despite the rarity of anti-communist movies from Hollywood, there have been a few. Which of these anti-communist movies do you think is the best?...

    "United States policy must continue to stand with the Cuban people and against those who have oppressed, terrorized, and murdered so many Cubans over the past half-century. This was my position when I served in the Senate; it is my position today; it will be my position as President. Fidel and Raul Castro are unaccountable dictators who can serve no role in Cuba’s future. We must continue supporting the growing internal opposition in Cuba while also denying the regime any source of funding that could prop up this cruel, illegitimate government. This means keeping current sanctions in place, and increasing...

    THE 'BEST' DICTATOR By JOHN O'SULLIVAN December 12, 2006 -- GEN. Augusto Pinochet, who died Sunday, was the most successful dictator of the 20th century - yet also one of the most vilified. Dictators are supposedly judged by two tests. How many people did they kill? And did they bring prosperity to their people? These two tests hang together because Marxists believed that their various ideological despotisms (in Cuba, China, the USSR) would eventually midwife a utopia - justifying their mass murders retrospectively. So how did individual dictators fare? Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong each murdered tens of...

    THE battle against totalitarianism, the great Czech novelist Milan Kundera once remarked, is the battle of remembering against forgetting. It is remarkable how much, in Australia, the great political battle of the second half of the 20th century - the battle for democracy against communism - has been forgotten. And if it is remembered at all, it is the people who fought for tyranny - the communists, the pro-communists and the friends of the communists - who are lionised in endless ABC documentaries, affectionate memoirs and taxpayer-funded conferences. If you stood up for Stalin, as Manning Clark did, if you...

    Many people, inside and outside of the conservative movement are asking questions about where it is going, and whether or not it is on the verge of collapse. Historian and author George Nash addressed the “Uneasy Future of Conservatism” at the Heritage Foundation on June 19th. The event was sponsored by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, an organization that seeks to provide college-aged students with an understanding of America’s founding principles. “In 2006, conservatism is middle-aged,” said Nash, “and on the right, there is a sense that political success has not been matched by change.” The government it seems is still...

    Not every Bolivian likes to be under the thumb of Hugo Chavez’s minime, Evo Morales. Residents of the eastern province, Santa Cruz, which is full of industrious immigrants and enterprising native-indigenous Bolivians who’ve moved there, want instead to have autonomy. They hate communism and want freedom.

    Leaders Mark 1956 Anti-Communist Protest By Associated Press June 28, 2006, 8:18 AM EDT WARSAW, Poland -- The presidents of Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Germany gathered in the city of Poznan on Wednesday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first anti-communist protest of 1956. President Lech Kaczynski was joined by counterparts Horst Koehler of Germany, Laszlo Solyom of Hungary, and Vaclav Klaus of Czech Republic to remember clashes that broke out between workers and communist militia in June 1956 in the western Polish city. With a military band playing, Kaczynski gave a red-carpet welcome to his fellow presidents...

Michal Kubicki reports Popular textbooks on Polish history describe the workers’ revolt in Poznan 59 as the first in a series of crises which eventually led to the collapse of communism in 1989. How important was it for Poland and the entire Soviet bloc? The other key events in Poland’s post-war history are the workers’ riots on the Baltic coast in 1970, the protests of 1976 which gave rise to the establishment of the Workers’...

    New Yorkers for Immigration Control and Enforcement (NY I.C.E.) will rally in front of Revolution Books at 9 West 19th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues in Manhattan) to bring illegal alien supporters out of the shadows. Building on the momentum established earlier this month with the NYC “Hands Along the Border” rally, NY I.C.E. will continue to protest against illegal aliens and their supporters. A primary objective of NY I.C.E. is to expose the supporters of illegal aliens, bringing them “out of the shadows”. NY I.C.E. has chosen this location because the counterprotestors at the previous rally reported to...
