    Washington, D.C. _ Warrensville Heights Democratic Rep. Marcia Fudge led a Congressional Black Caucus delegation to China last week, where she and nine colleagues discussed foreign, domestic, and economic policy with Chinese, Hong Kong, and U.S. government officials, as well as members of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. Fudge and her colleagues visited Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong during the weeklong trip paid for by the Chinese government. While in China, Fudge and the group met with Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong and other high-level officials. The trip hosted by the Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs...

    WASHINGTON - Former President Bill Clinton has told an Arab-American audience of 1,000 people that the U.S. is no longer just a black-white country, nor a country that is dominated by Christians and a powerful Jewish minority In a speech to the group on Saturday, Clinton said that given the growing numbers of Muslims, Hindus and other religious groups here, Americans should be mindful of the nation's changing demographics, which led to the election of Barack Obama as president. Clinton said by 2050 the U.S. will no longer have a majority of people with European heritage and that in an...

    Multiculturalists are trying to define September 12 as "Interdependence Day," when it is in fact the anniversary of one of the most decisive battles in history. On this date in 1683, Central Europe was on the edge of conquest by an Islamic supremacist army. Turkish miners had already undermined at least one bastion of Vienna's fortress, and only a heroic response by defenders who actually extinguished an explosive charge's fuze prevented a fatal breach in the defenses. Within days if not hours, militant and expansionist Islam would hold sway over the heart of Europe. That was when the Polish Army...

    Russia is waging a "little Cold War" against its Baltic neighbors, while luring Western Europe into energy deals that will later allow Moscow to extend its political influence through intimidation, a former president of Lithuania warned yesterday. Russia has returned to its historical aggressive behavior, harboring "deep suspicions of the rest of the world" and dashing the "short-lived hopes that Russia would become a democracy" after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Vytautas Landsbergis said at the National Press Club. Now a conservative member of the European Parliament, Mr. Landsbergis predicted that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his supporters aim...

    Don't back down to China's overt military threats By Joseph Farah Dear Andrés, As I understand it, you and President Bush believe it is in America's best interest to help China expand its economy through partnerships, sharing technology, Import-Export Bank loans, investment and relaxed trade requirements and allowing them to buy U.S. companies of strategic importance -- like 3Com. I disagree. What China needs to do to improve the plight of its people is to abandon the failed experiment with command-and-control socialism that has created a nightmare world of totalitarianism for more than 1 billion people. President Reagan rejected similar...

    Britain hits back at Russia as G8 tension escalates By Graeme Wilson (Filed: 14/07/2006) Tensions between Tony Blair and Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, over human rights and energy security surfaced yesterday as the Prime Minister prepared to fly out to this weekend's G8 summit in St Petersburg. Downing Street offered a robust response after Mr Putin criticised Anthony Brenton, Britain's ambassador to Moscow, for interfering in Russia's "internal" affairs by attending an opposition conference.

    Will prices go up - inflation? Or will they go down - deflation? Is there some way to predict trends? How? Someone once said that if all the economists in the world were laid end to end they would never reach a conclusion. Well, it just got harder for them do so. Prices in the US and economic trends are now dependent on what is happening in India. Monetary policy is affected by trends in China. Problem is - the Fed still makes their predictions based on domestic factors alone. Something is missing in this picture, no? What happens if...

    President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that Russia wants good relations with the United States but he objected vigorously to Vice President Dick Cheney's recent criticism of democratic backtracking by the Kremlin. "We see how the United States defends its interests, we see what methods and means they use for this," Putin said at a news conference following a summit meeting of Russia and the European Union in his most direct criticism of Cheney's remarks. In a speech earlier this month in Lithuania, Cheney accused the Kremlin of rolling back democracy and strong-arming its ex-Soviet neighbors. "When we fight for our...

    At first glance, it may seem a long shot in an era of orange alerts and stepped-up border patrols. But quietly and carefully, elected officials, labor unions and community groups are starting to push the notion of allowing legal immigrants who are not United States citizens to vote in New York City elections. Supporters say it is not an outlandish proposition. They point out that even without citizenship, legal immigrants pay taxes, send their children to public schools and serve in the military. Noncitizens in many states were allowed to vote in local, state and even Congressional elections as recently...

    The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect on January 1, 1994, amid great hoopla and promises that it would bring a continuous wave of progress and prosperity to all three nations involved: Mexico, Canada and the United States. Although some U.S. businesses have indeed benefited from the new arrangement, many others have not. Thousands of businesses and millions of jobs, especially in manufacturing, have fled the U.S. for Mexico, China and elsewhere. Many critical skills, technologies and production plants have disappeared from America’s economic landscape. Another major promise of the “Free Trade” advocates was that once NAFTA...

    "The Nation-State Is Finished" by William F. Jasper Robert Bartley, a closet one-worlder at the WSJ, used his newspaper’s "conservative" clout to seduce American business leaders into sacrificing U.S. sovereignty for trade. ‘‘What in blazes can President Bush be thinking?" That has been the general response — on talk radio and in media surveys, Internet postings and letters-to-the-editor — of many current and former Bush supporters angered and confused by the president’s immigration proposals. These folks would not have been surprised by the president’s outrageous announcement on January 7 or his remarks the following week at the Summit of the...

    America's cities and towns will soon fill with parades, fireworks, and barbecues. They will be celebrating the Fourth of July, the 227th birthday of America. But one hopes that—on this second post-September 11 Independence Day—the speeches will contain fewer bromides and more attention to exactly what is being celebrated. The Fourth of July is Independence Day, but America's leaders and intellectuals have been trying to move us further and further away from the meaning of Independence Day, away from the philosophy that created this country. What we hear from politicians, intellectuals, and the media is that independence is passé, that...

    Unless Congress regains a modicum of sanity, the United States of America is about to rejoin an organization dedicated to the destruction of the last vestiges of Judeo-Christian civilization. For reasons inexplicable to most sensible Americans, in September 2002, an otherwise sensible President George W. Bush told the United Nations that the U.S. will rejoin the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a wild-eyed bunch President Reagan abandoned in 1984, noting that it was utterly corrupt and the U.S. had no business being a member of such a group.

    Kucinich draws support from peace activists, New Age gurus WASHINGTON (AP) -- Dennis Kucinich, a champion for down-to-earth issues such as blue-collar jobs and the beleaguered steel industry, is showing his spiritual side as he courts supporters in his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. Peace activists, New Age gurus and people who practice alternative religions are among Kucinich's donors -- many of them attracted to the Ohio congressman's stand on less-than-mainstream issues, such as a call for a Cabinet-level Department of Peace and his support for medical marijuana. ''I have a holistic view of the world,'' Kucinich explains....

    A greatly expanded Group of Eight – G8 – opened Sunday in Evian, France. The G8 was begun in 1975 with five countries meeting with the purpose of guiding global economies in a post-gold world as a result of President Nixon taking the dollar off the gold standard in 1971. Twenty-seven years later, it has eight members: the United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Russia and Italy. Russia just became a full member at this meeting. During the last quarter century, the functions and oversight of the Group of Eight Heads of State have come to function like...

    On June 3, 1804, Richard Cobden was born. Nicknamed the "Apostle of Free Trade," he spearheaded the campaign against the protectionist English Corn Laws, leading to their repeal in 1846, which then spread to the liberalization of trade throughout much of Europe. His role was so great that it has been said the free market owes its existence to him. Cobden saw that free trade was the key to material prosperity, as evidenced by England's economic growth and rise to world leadership in virtually all aspects of trade—finance, insurance, shipping, etc.—after the Corn Law repeal. But more than prosperity, Cobden...

    The disappearance of Marxism as a force in world politics has not been accompanied by an acceptance of a diversity of political systems. Throughout modern times liberal states have always co-existed alongside many kinds of tyranny. Similarly, the modern world has always contained numerous economic systems -- many varieties of capitalism, planned and guided economies, and a host of hybrid economic systems not easily classified. Diplomacy and international law developed to cope with the fact of diverse regimes. Yet throughout the 20th century global politics was shaped by the project of unifying the world within a single regime. Insofar as...

    BRUSSELS, Belgium, July 18 (UPI) -- The European Commission Thursday appeared set to urge European Union governments to slap sanctions on the United States for failing to lift punitive import duties on European steel products. President George W. Bush sparked protests from non-American steel producers this year when he decided to place tariff quotas and impose up to 30 percent extra duties on steel imports from March 20. The EC, along with other steel-exporting states, is seeking to overturn the U.S. safeguard measure in the World Trade Organization. As settlements often take more than a year to reach, the commission...

    Henry Lamb shows us how the federal government is propagandizing our children in the green religion of globalism. What's globalism? The 1965 version of the Merriam-Webster dictionary doesn't include the word globalism but it does include the word global. It refers to something being universal, or comprehensive. If you're like myself, I spend many hours reading and trying to comprehend what the global governance crowd is trying to say to say to us. Amidst all the ambiguous phrases and the language of doublespeak, some people have spoken plainly enough. USA Communist Party Chief Gus Hall stated, "...The battle will be...
