    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...

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.

    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 RareNonfiction.com 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...

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.

    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?...

    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.

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...

"This document is doubtlessly aimed at Russia and pursues far- reaching ends: first recognize the Soviet Union regime as criminal and totalitarian and then advance legal claims, including financial ones, against Russia as the USSR's successor," Kovalyov told Interfax on Thursday.

    Joseph Stalin ordered the KGB to assassinate John Wayne because he considered his anti-communist rhetoric a threat to the Soviet Union, according to a new biography of the film star based on interviews with Wayne's close associates and the movie legend Orson Welles. Stalin apparently learned of Wayne's popularity from the Russian filmmaker Sergei Gerasimov, who attended a peace conference in New York in 1949. Michael Munn, a film historian and author of John Wayne - The Man Behind The Myth, said Gerasimov told Stalin of Wayne's fervent anti-communist beliefs.

    <p>May 7, 2003 -- THE release this week, with great fanfare and media hoopla, of the so-called "secret" hearings of Sen. Joseph McCarthy's anti-Communist investigations committee 50 years after the fact is hardly the great historical revelation it is being portrayed as. The 5,000 pages of closed-door executive session testimony already are being cited by the left as further proof that the Wisconsin senator - whose name symbolizes an era Jimmy Carter would later naively call "America's inordinate fear of Communism" - conducted a wide-ranging "witch hunt" for nonexistent subversives.</p>

    <p>OTTO J. REICH got a surprise when he returned from Brazil last month: He was no longer assistant secretary of state for the Western Hemisphere. The Bush administration moved him to a smaller office because his recess appointment expired when the congressional session ended. But the administration is not signaling its intention to seek Senate approval of his permanent appointment. That's good news for anyone who wants the United States to embark on policies toward Latin American that are devoid of the archaic, reflexive anticommunism of the 1980s.</p>
