    I mourned the untimely passing of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman for the very personal reason that I hoped he would one day get to play Whittaker Chambers in a film version of Chambersí 1952 masterwork, Witness. Short, heavy set, permanently rumpled, Hoffman would have made a near perfect Chambers to George Clooneyís Alger Hiss, the smooth, handsome, establishment golden boy. Chambersí 800-page story of his life and their encounter remains the great political book of the twentieth century. Chambers was a deep thinker, a dazzling writer, and a reluctant participant in the most riveting political drama of the era. No...

    Vice President Joe Biden used a Black History Month event at his official residence Monday night to decry the rich, both white and black, for stunting economic growth and suggested that ďemancipationĒ is in order. ďA lot of wealthy white and black people aren't bad but they control 1 percent of the economy and this cannot stand,Ē Biden told about 100 guests, including past civil rights activists and NBC weatherman Al Roker. ďIt's not fair because the business experts are saying that concentration of wealth is stunting growth.

    Does anybody really buy the Leftís faux outrage over former New York City mayor Rudy Giulianiís opinion, offered at a private event for Wisconsin governor Scott Walker last Wednesday, that President Obama does not love America? After all, itís a matter of orthodoxy on the right that Barack Obamaís opinion of America ranges from mild disapproval to outright hatred. In my own estimation, it is somewhere between.

    The primary reason Communism doesnít work is that it goes against the very nature of man. In Communism there is simply no motivation for anyone to work hard. When there is a zero correlation between the amount or quality of work you do and the compensation you receive, your motivation to work hard, or maybe work at all, simply evaporates. This is particularly true given that the compensation for the slacker at the next desk is equally without correlation as he continues to get the same salary regardless of whether he actually gets anything done or not. And while Communism...

    The actual history of communism --†the agony of the millions whose lives were†destroyed by it --†is almost entirely missing from American cinema. The reason for this rests in Hollywood's own convoluted political history, a history that includes†the "back story" of communism's own largely uncharted offensive in the studios. The cinema's great potential for persuasion excited Joseph Stalin and the Communist Party of the United States of America (CPUSA), which Stalin controlled. "One of the most pressing tasks confronting the Communist Party in the field of propaganda," wrote the indefatigable Comintern agent Willi Muenzenberg in a 1925 Daily Worker article, "is...

    I was humbled and honored to see on various global news networks how my action movies that were pirated into Romania when it was a communist country inspired generations and set the stage for revolution against former dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. However, the total truth is that without the common people rising up, rebelling and supporting freedom, change and democracy, the motivation from my movies would have been short-lived or even missing in action. Here's a sample of headline news from around the globe this past week: BBC News: "Talking Movies: How Chuck Norris changed Romania." Fox News: "'Chuck Norris vs....

    Promising to help Americaís middle class, President Barack Obama on Monday sent Congress a record $4 trillion budget that would hammer corporate profits overseas and raise taxes on the wealthy while boosting tax credits for families and the working poor. Obamaís budget also would steer hundreds of billions of dollars to the nationís crumbling infrastructure of roads and bridges, help provide two years of free community college and reverse the across-the-board, automatic budget cuts that have slammed the Pentagon and nearly every government department. In the face of certain opposition from Republicans, an optimistic Obama hailed a ďbreakthrough year for...

    Bill Browder rose from rebellious grandson of the former head of the Communist Party USA, Earl Browder, to the leading foreign capitalist in Russia, as the founder and CEO of the high-flying hedge fund Hermitage Capital Management. But his rise was matched by a brutal and deadly fall, in which the Russian government would steal and destroy Browderís company, and physically threaten its employees, culminating in the imprisonment, torture and death of Browderís lawyer Sergei Magnitsky ó the man for whom on account of Browderís lobbying, the Magnitsky Act was named. Browder and a deceased Magnitsky would both be convicted...

    In what some are saying may be a move to lock up progressive support for a possible 2016 presidential run, Vice-President Joe Biden declared that if he were running this country everything would be free. ďYou know how weíve all heard that the best things in life are free, well, that clearly hasnít been the case,Ē Biden observed. ďAlmost everything people want costs money. And a lot of people just donít have enough money to fully partake of this nationís abundance.Ē Biden criticized past efforts to try to solve the problem by handing out government benefits to the poor. ďNo...

    Soaring crime in Caracas throughout 2014 has given it the unenviable ranking of second most violent city in the world, with a murder rate of 155 for every 100,000 inhabitants, according to Mexican NGO Security, Justice, and Peace. In the Venezuelan capital, not even the stateís security forces are safe: during the first 29 days of 2015, criminals murdered 13 of the cityís uniformed officers. Circumstances varied, but in the majority of cases, the perpetrators killed police to steal their firearms. ďThe criminal sees the policeman not as a figure of authority, but as an equal, and he doesnít respect...

    Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says the owners of an unnamed chain of shops have been arrested for artificially creating long queues. Mr Maduro said the owners had reduced the number of employees working on cash tills in order to create queues and "annoy the Venezuelan people". He has accused Venezuela's business elite of boycotting his government. The opposition blames the socialist policies of the past 16 years for the worsening economic crisis. "Yesterday we detected that a famous chain of stores was conspiring, irritating the people," said Mr Maduro. "We came, we normalized sales, we summoned the owners, we arrested...

    Mary Noriega heard there would be chicken. She hated being herded ďlike cattle,Ē she said, standing for hours in a line of more than 1,500 people hoping to buy food, as soldiers with side arms checked identification cards to make sure no one tried to buy basic items more than once or twice a week. But Ms. Noriega, a laboratory assistant with three children, said she had no choice, ticking off the inventory in her depleted refrigerator: coffee and corn flour. Things had gotten so bad, she said, that she had begun bartering with neighbors to put food on the...

    John Bachtell, chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA, has penned a 2,000-plus-word essay explaining to his True Believers why the party has chosen to use the Democrats as its vehicle. Eric Owens of the Daily Caller noticed and excerpted some of the gems from the cant-laden prose, but let me offer my own summary.
