    Founder of today’s China killed 45 million of his own people (, Sep05, 2010) Recently declassified Chinese Communist Party archives show that the Great Helmsman, Chairman Mao Tsetung's regime cased the greatest "man-made famine" the world has ever seen, reported the ANI news service Sep 3, citing a new publication from Hong Kong.

    The speaker of the German parliament on Wednesday said the slaughter of indigenous Namibians a century ago constituted a “genocide” that stemmed from a “race war”. Norbert Lammert, writing in a guest column for news weekly Die Zeit, said the Herero and Nama peoples had been systematically targeted for massacre by German imperial troops. “Using today’s standards of international law, the crushing of the Herero revolt was genocide,” he wrote. …

    With children fleeing violence and poverty in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador; there is a humanitarian crises in our border states. Tea/Republicans are more interested in blaming President Obama for a policy that was, in fact, passed by the Bush Administration than in finding solutions. Then, what’s new about that? Under the Bush Administration’s policy, the Border Patrol Agency (BPA) is required to take in unaccompanied children from countries that are not Mexico. The law required the BPA to have them screened and vaccinated before turning them over to the Department of Human Services’ Office of Refugee Recruitment. While complaining...

    In a recent speech in Hawaii, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia made some interesting predictions about two of the Supreme Court’s most notorious decisions: Kelo v. City of New London, which ruled that government can condemn private property and give it to other private owners to promote “economic development,” and Korematsu v. United States, which upheld the internment of over 100,000 Japanese-Americans in concentration camps during World War II. On Kelo, Scalia reiterated his 2011 prediction that the decision will eventually be overruled, stating that it “will not survive.” Kelo was a closely divided 5-4 decision (Scalia voted with the...

    ANAHEIM – He was beaten. Marched before a firing squad. Starved at Buchenwald. Only a small twist of fate saved him – four days before the Nazis planned to execute him. They have survived Buchenwald. But the world isn't ready to hear it. After the war, they are told to not speak about it. The official U.S. stance was that no American POWs went to Buchenwald. "We were still negotiating certain things with the Germans," says Dorsey, of Temecula. "The government didn't want to upset people by saying U.S. servicemen were held in concentration camps."

    What’s with all the recent inappropriate Nazi comparisons? On Tuesday, liberal radio host Mike Malloy likened George W. Bush to Hitler. Now, Glenn Beck has drawn the ire of the Anti-Defamation League by claiming that Jewish billionaire George Soros played a role in the Holocaust. On his radio show yesterday, Beck gave his listeners a history lesson about Soros, who was born György Schwartz in Hungary in 1930. According to Beck, Soros’s father “is a guy who spoke Esperanza fluently—Esperanza was developed in the 1880s as the world’s first international language.” (He’s mistaken about the name of that language; it’s...

    The world is now observing the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. More Jewish people were slaughtered there than at any other point on earth. In the midst of the remembrance, it is well to recall the New York Times article by C.L. Sulzberger noting the liberation. Cyrus Sulzberger listed the different kinds of people slaughtered at the camp: men, women, children, Poles, Italians, etc. One thing old Cyrus neglected to mention in his article was the religion of the overwhelming majority of victims: They were Jews. This should not surprise us. After all, another Sulzberger,...

    Is it an unfortunate evolutionary holdover, or the product of bad upbringing? At the recent conference in Chicago of the Association of Politics and Life Sciences, a panel on "Biobehaviorial Approaches to Politics" addressed the important question: What is wrong with people who disagree with the mainstream of American academic social scientists? Nancy Meyer-Emerick, an assistant professor of public administration at Cleveland State University, made a presentation on "Evolutionary Perspectives on the Authoritarian Personality." Professor Meyer-Emerick wants to know if there are genetic tendencies that promote what she dubs "authoritarianism." She defines this distasteful quality through the work of University...

    "There's a lot of younger people that don't believe this happened," John Campbell said about the atrocities of genocide performed by Nazi soldiers during World War II. "They think it's all fake history. The Nazi party was a wicked party." But Campbell knows, because he saw one of the thousands of concentration camps established by the Germans during the war. Campbell was drafted into the Army on May, 11, 1942, and was assigned to the 847th Ordnance Co. He spent much of his time in Europe, and during the last days of the war, he was in Germany. During his...

    SEOUL--The guards at North Korea's No. 22 Hoeryong prison camp had a little competition going: catch one of the rare inmates who dare try to escape and win a trip to college. And so one day in 1991, recalls Ahn Myong Chul, a former prison driver who later fled North Korea, an enterprising fellow guard coaxed five prisoners into climbing the camp's barbed-wire fence. He shot them dead--and thereby earned an education at a state political college. Such is the capriciousness of life in one corner of North Korea's vast gulag, its chain of political prison camps for those who--often...

    SIMON WIESENTHAL, the world’s most famous Nazi hunter, has ended his search for the murderers of his people. Mr Wiesenthal, 94, says in an interview published today that his days of hunting down the killers are over. “I found the mass murderers I was looking for, and I have outlived all of them. If there are a few I didn’t look for, they are now too old and fragile to stand trial. My work is done,” he told the Austrian weekly magazine Format. Mr Wiesenthal chose Vienna after the war as his base of operations because of the support the...
