    Fifty years ago, the world woke up to news the nation - then at odds with Moscow and Washington - had detonated its own atomic bomb China's first atomic test on October 16, 1964, in Xinjiang. Mao wanted to prove the nation was a global power. Photo: SCMP Pictures Fifty years ago yesterday, China detonated its first atomic bomb, joining the United States, Soviet Union, Britain and France as the only nuclear powers at the time. The explosion in Lop Nur in eastern Xinjiang paved the way for the nation's further development of nuclear weapons and its emergence as a...

    We’ve never had a “community organizer” as our President before. And we are seeing the disastrous consequences of putting this community organizer at the head of the most powerful nation in the world. He has taken the apparatus of government and used it solely to organize, or as he calls it, fundamentally transform, the nation into a characterization of his ideal world.

    When Chairman Mao was failing and about to lose his government, he initiated the Great Cultural Revolution. The documentary, Morning Sun, describes this as a Revolution on the revolution. I believe we are witnessing the "revolution" in America less than 60 years later. Yesterday's events have struck a disturbing cord within my heart and soul. While the meme is what happened to Sterling was right and just...while I still have the ability to speak freely regarding the matter, I shall raise my voice to question this idea of "social justice," as we witnessed it applied yesterday.

    Is communism making a comeback? On its face, the question seems more than a little absurd. The Berlin Wall came down over 24 years ago. We are more than 22 years removed from the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. All that remains are the Stalinist museum pieces of North Korea and Cuba, the former an isolated country known mainly for its absurd dictator and starving population, the latter a beautiful island stuck in a 1950s time warp due to backwards economic and social policies. Even China, the one major power still ruled by...

    The reporting on China's commemoration of the 120th birthday of Mao Zedong all seemed to come from the same angle. Festivities were "understated" (AP). Events were "scaled back" (Reuters). The following headline, which ran on the Fox News website over the AP story, is typical: "China marks Mao's 120th birthday with low-key celebrations." The story opens: "China's leaders bowed three times before a statue of Mao Zedong on the 120th anniversary of his birth Thursday in carefully controlled celebrations that also sought to uphold the market-style reforms that he would have opposed." Forget for now the "market-style reforms." Only...

    The campaign for gay marriage in the US is starting to resemble the Cultural Revolution in Mao’s China. Politicians denouncing their own prior beliefs, people hounding others to recant, the young being upheld as morally superior to the ‘backward’ older generation… it all feels worryingly familiar. According to the new orthodoxy, we will not have a gay-marriage debate, because you don’t argue with bigotry and homophobia. The most prominent supporters of same-sex marriage (SSM) in the US today - establishment voices from the New York Times to Democratic Party politicians - do not engage with views from the other side;...

    On Wednesday, the Standing Committee of China’s National People’s Congress will convene. What’s on the agenda? A proposal to fast-track a massive urbanization plan. Beijing is now placing a big bet on cities. The gamble, however, is unlikely to pay off. It could even sink the Chinese economy and create social unrest. Today, the Tokyo metropolitan area, home to 37.1 million, can claim to be the world’s most populous urban region. Beijing wants to top that and build metropolises dwarfing anything seen in Japan—or anywhere else. How about a Chinese city of 260 million people? That’s the size of the...

During the 2012 election, the Obama team tapped Bauer to lead the legal teams for the campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Among his initiatives: fighting voter ID laws enacted by a number of states in an effort to combat voter fraud. During his time as the team’s organizer, Bauer told the Associated Press that he believes that the GOP is enlisting these new laws to impede...

The 56-year-old actor pulls at the bandage covering the spot, then carefully peels it off and touches the scab with his fingertip. He saw a doctor to have the size of the mole reduced, and now it is exactly as large as Mao’s was. Wu is pleased. He looks like Mao, he speaks like Mao and his mole might be his ticket to landing movie roles as Mao. There’s demand for Mao lookalikes in China—and especially now. “People have deep feelings for the chairman,” Wu says.</p>

The website, Kids’ Zone by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), featured the quote “Our attitude towards ourselves should be ‘to be satiable in learning’ and towards others ‘to be tireless in teaching.” After a slew of backlash mostly from conservatives, the website replaced the quote with one from Abraham Lincoln’s first political announcement. Then the quote was removed completely with a peculiar message reading, “Sorry there is no quote of...

The last time that I had taken any interest in Trotsky was when I was a teenager and had fleeting delusions of believing in “socialism.” Reading the new book as an adult and as an economist, I found it a useful opportunity to...

    The FRC shooting is the latest chapter in the blood-drenched history of the left — from the French Revolution to Occupy Wall Street. This is the way the left does business — with guillotines, gulags and gas chambers, with bombs, bullets, purges, planned famines and demonizing opponents as a prelude to their slaughter. In 2009, James Pouillon was shot to death while holding a pro-life sign by a supporter of choice. The same year, black Tea Party activist Kenneth Glandney was beaten so badly by SEIU thugs that he had to be hospitalized. In 2010, heavily armed eco-terrorist James J....

    China’s Worst Self-Inflicted Environmental Disaster: The Campaign to Wipe Out the Common Sparrow Back in the 1950s, China was going through its Great Leap Forward, an effort to transform China from a largely agrarian nation to a thriving industrial Marxist powerhouse. These sweeping (and often brutal) reforms, touched virtually every facet of Chinese life — and as one particular episode in China's history points out, the animal kingdom was also far from immune. In 1958, China ordered the extermination of several pests, including sparrows — an ill-fated campaign that eventually led to catastrophe. The Four Pests campaign Chinese leader Mao...

    Let’s hope nothing like it happens here. China’s Great Leap Forward (1958-61) was Mao’s ill conceived effort to jump start China from a rural economy into an industrialized nation overnight. Not only did it fail, but it was a disaster of epic proportions. An estimated 30 million Chinese died of starvation in its aftermath. Mao’s later Cultural Revolution, which received greater publicity, can’t compare. That was a political purification program. The Great Leap Forward was destructive communist socialism at its worst. It should be a lesson. Mao in all his wisdom wanted to build an industrial economy by uprooting peasants...

Forward implies that there's no alternative but to go backward, which is a place that no right-thinking person wants to go. The left has always been enamored of "Forwardism" or "Progressivism" which mean much the same thing. Before MSNBC had Lean Forward, Mao had the Great Leap Forward which killed some 40 million people, far more people than MSNBC can ever...

    Big Government ^ | August 30th | Bob McCarty
    On the day we arrived in Washington, April 12, 1997, we tuned in to C-Span just in time to see the House of Representatives pass H.400 on a voice vote. Not one member of the House of Representatives demanded a roll call vote on a bill that would severely emasculate a core function of the federal government. When we were finally able to obtain a copy of S.507, we read it very carefully and we were horrified. Never in all of our years as lobbyists had we ever read a worse piece of legislation. If we had ever wondered what...

    Post Columnist Says King Monument is Stalin-like A Washington Post columnist has criticized the new Martin Luther King, Jr. monument, while his paper is publishing a 24-page special supplement hailing the unveiling of the “Stone of Hope” in the memorial that includes the 30-foot tall statue of the civil rights leader. Black columnist Courtland Milloy writes, “Let’s face it: There really is something peculiar about having an artist from communist China sculpt the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial statue. And, yes, it would have been fantastic had an African American sculptor been chosen instead.” He adds, “The sculpture is based...

    That brings us to this month. In an article last week, Politico ended its story on Bloom’s resignation with a curious quote. In reference to Obama attempting to forge a partnership between manufacturers in several states and academia — in order to revitalize American factories — Bloom apparently saw something Mao-esque in the way government was attempting to support private business, stating the approach would, “let the great thousand flowers bloom in America.” If that sounds familiar, it should. While the correct wording is in fact a “hundred flowers,” there is no question as to where the phrase derives from....

    As China's Communist Party marks its 90th birthday, one man has a unique perspective - an 89-year-old American ex-Communist who spent 35 years in China and rubbed shoulders with Chairman Mao.Sidney Rittenberg has lived a life usually seen only in Hollywood movies. As a young man, he turned his back on the country of his birth, the United States, and threw in his lot with China's fledgling communist party. He personally knew the revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, spent time in solitary confinement after being accused of spying and, disillusioned, finally returned to America following a second stint in prison. >...

    In 1958, Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong launched his “Great Leap Forward,” a plan to radically change the economy of China. Mao and his central planners cooked up an imaginative scheme designed to increase industrial and agricultural production and to make China into a workers' paradise. In agriculture, especially, there would be dramatic changes. Farms would be collectivized instead of left to individual farmers. By adopting new, scientific, government-approved approaches to farming, the collectives would be able to ensure record harvests year after year. To bring about collectivization farmers were held for hour upon hour until they “voluntarily” agreed to...

    Global warming is the greatest and most successful pseudo-scientific fraud I have seen in my long life. ~ Dr. Harold Lewis Ten days ago, Harold Lewis, Ph.D., emeritus professor of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, tendered his letter of resignation to Curtis G. Callan Jr., Princeton University, president of the American Physical Society, because Dr. Lewis finally realized that he could no longer support what he called the "successful pseudo-scientific fraud" of global warming. Remember, to the Democratic Party and RINO Republicans, truth doesn't matter, because to them truth is relative. All that matters to liberals and...

    Dr. John C. Drew, a grant writing consultant in Laguna Niguel, Calif., tells Newsmax he met Obama in 1980 when Obama was a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Drew had just graduated from Occidental and was attending graduate school at Cornell University. Drew’s then girlfriend, Caroline Boss — now Grauman-Boss — knew Obama because she shared classes with him at Occidental.... During Christmas break, Drew says he was at Grauman-Boss’ home in Palo Alto when Obama came over with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, his roommate from Pakistan. “Barack and Hasan showed up at the house in a BMW, and...

    Last year, our beloved president celebrated his first White House Christmas in trademark style: he decorated the tree with shiny images of Chairman Mao, transvestite Hedda Lettuce and his own smiling face, carved into Mt. Rushmore. What special holiday magic will grace the White House tree this year? Here are some suggestions for decorations that glamorously showcase America's worst enemies, flashiest sexual deviants and most over-the-top narcissistic presidential fantasies. How about a silver Christmas ball with a smiling Julian Assange? He looks like a Christmas elf, anyway, so this concept could really deliver. Plus, with that rape charge in Sweden,...
