    The former president of the of the European Commission, the European Union’s (EU) unelected executive arm, has been recruited as the new boss of international operations at Goldman Sachs, who funded the official anti-Brexit campaign. In May, in the run-up to the referendum, figures released by the Electoral Commission revealed that Goldman Sachs had quietly donated £500,000 to Britain Stronger in Europe – the official, government back anti-Brexit campaign – shortly before February when donations had to be declared.

    This week in Washington, Senator Marco Rubio accused a fellow American of treason. Edward Snowden drew the Republican's ire by informing hundreds of millions of innocent people that the NSA is spying on them... Anyone familiar with the Snowden story will understand why Rubio's comments are misleading. Americans are concerned about their civil liberties because of the accurate information the former Booz Allen Hamilton contractor leaked. He isn't responsible for any conspiracy theories, except in the sense that a conspiracy is "an agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act," and he exposed NSA and GCHQ cooperation on...

    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...

    Seven police commandoes have been killed in a bomb and gun attack by communist rebels in the northern Philippines, officials say. Rebels from the New People's Army (NPA) ambushed the group as they made their way to a medical exam. Their truck was hit by an explosion, after which the militants opened fire, police said. Seven other commandoes were also injured in the attack. The incident took place near Allacapan, 400km (250 miles) north of Manila. Those who died were members of an elite counter-insurgency police unit, reports said. The NPA has been fighting for a communist state for more...

    China shuts Maoist sites amid political crisis Beijing, Sun Apr 08 2012, 00:54 hrs Chinese authorities have ordered a leading pro-Maoist website shut down for one month because of critical essays posted on it, the website’s founder said, amid the country’s worst high-level political crisis in years. The move comes after the firing of a once high-flying official, who promoted Mao Zedong-era songs and stories. Han Deqiang, founder of the leftist website Utopia, said police ordered that it be shut down because of content that criticized the Communist Party, its leaders and an upcoming party congress. The shutdown took effect...

    Kathmandu: A sort of political blizzard is likely to overwhelm Nepal soon. Destructive politics appear to have already taken a shape which awaits only its formalization in a week or so. The frenzied play that is being played in the dim corners of Kathmandu backed by some alien forces in the South will, if it does happen, apparently be very hard to be tackled by the ruling Maoists-the party in government. Exactly after a lapse of three years four months (minus 12 days to be more precise), such a destructive political play is being staged by forces that are visibly...

    It was inevitable. Given the increasing pressure on liberals, especially artists and writers, including Jewish artists and writers, to prove that they have the right/left politics–properly pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel, anti-Judaism, and anti-American–Hollywood is giving an Honorary Academy Award to French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, an historically important director but a raving and unapologetic anti-Semite, a man who is obsessed with the Jews. Godard has called a reputable French producer a “dirty Jew; Francois Truffaut broke with him over this as did Claude Lanzmann, the great French documentarian of the Holocaust (“Shoah”). Godard has also described Israel as a “cancer on the map...

In 2011, said the Financial Times, China will surpass the United States as first manufacturing power, a title America has held since surpassing Great Britain around 1890. Each year, China passes a new milestone. Last year, China surpassed Germany as the greatest exporting nation. This year, China surpasses Japan as the world's second-largest economy.

    The Left has always had a cavalier attitude toward death. Identified by Sarah Palin as Death Panels in President Obama's Health Care Legislation; the concept relates to much earlier times in the Leftist philosophy. From the writing of Chairman Mao, who is a hero of Anita Dunn and Ron Bloom within the Obama Administration, we are left with keys to his much admired Democrat philosophy concerning death for the commoner as opposed to death for the "Great Heroes", a designation he and most upper level Democrat leaders seem to ascribe for themselves. Mao, "Human beings are endowed with the sense...

Officials say they suspect sabotage by Maoist rebels caused the derailment. Most passengers were sleeping when 13 carriages of the passenger train derailed and fell on an adjacent track, where they were rammed by a freight train coming from the opposite direction. The Mumbai bound train originated in the eastern city of Kolkata in West Bengal. The crash occurred early Friday near the small town of Sardiha. Several carriages overturned completely.

    A decade and a half after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and more than three decades after the Chinese began to gradually unshackle themselves of Maoist dogma, to progressively embrace the mantras of capitalism, India is experiencing a vast and escalating surge of a violent Maoist rebellion. To the Western mind, the developments in both Russia and China irrevocably demonstrated the failure of the communist ideology, and it is bewildering to see a resurgence of this discredited doctrine in an India that has widely come to be regarded as an engine of growth, a dynamic economy, a rising global...

Jones’ history with extremist groups and the website created a vocal conservative movement that ultimately cost him his position under Barack Obama, despite his work in creating the Green Jobs act in 2007 and declaring himself to be the victim of “a vicious smear campaign.” The NAACP says ex-Green czar deserves the award and “may be the most misunderstood man in...

If we, the people make a social compact by which we consent to be governed, it means that government is our servant, not our master.

More than 6,000 people have died during the rebels' 20-year fight for a communist state in parts of India. The rebels later managed to escape from the area after the clashes. Police are conducting a search operation. In April,...

    BHUBANESWAR, India (Reuters) - At least 24 policemen were killed when a landmine exploded under a security vehicle in Orissa on Wednesday, in an attack police blamed on Maoist rebels. The attack, in the remote Malkangiri district, comes a fortnight after the rebels sank a police boat and killed 38 officers of an elite anti-insurgency unit in the same area. "All 24 police personnel are dead," officer Sujeet Naik told Reuters, blaming the strike on rebels who are known to be strong in the forested region. Police said the Maoists had stepped up violence in response to a security campaign...

    Nepal's former Maoist guerrillas have indicated a sudden shift in their position on the deployment of the UN in the thorny peace process, saying the world body could be asked to stay on even after its tenure ended next month. "The UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) will be needed as long as there are two armies in Nepal," Maoist deputy chief Baburam Bhattarai said. UNMIN was sent in by then UN secretary general Kofi Annan when both the Maoists and the other major parties asked for arms monitors to keep watch over the barracks and weapons of the Nepal Army...

    India's Maoist movement is expanding its operations as its People's War develops along ideological and pragmatic lines. Dr P V Ramana looks at the rise of the rebellion and the country's poorly co-ordinated counter-insurgency strategies. While discussion of the threat posed to India by radical Islamist violence tends to dominate security assessments, the country's Maoist insurgency has been steadily expanding its areas of influence and building up its military capability. This expansion has been so great that in 2007 Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh described the Maoists as the "single biggest internal security challenge facing India". The proscribed Communist Party...

    Cameron Diaz Apologizes for Maoist Bag Jun 24 09:52 PM US/Eastern LIMA, Peru (AP) - Cameron Diaz apologized Sunday for wearing a bag with a political slogan that evoked painful memories in Peru. The voice of Princess Fiona in the animated "Shrek" films visited the Incan city of Machu Picchu in Peru's Andes on Friday wearing an olive green bag emblazoned with a red star and the words "Serve the People" printed in Chinese, perhaps Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong's most famous political slogan. The bags are marketed as fashion accessories in some world capitals, but in Peru the slogan...

    AGUAS CALIENTES, Peru -- Actress Cameron Diaz appears to have committed a major fashion faux pas in Peru. The voice of Princess Fiona in the animated "Shrek" films may have inadvertently offended Peruvians who suffered decades of violence from a Maoist guerrilla insurgency by touring here Friday with a bag emblazoned with one of Mao Zedong's favorite political slogans. While explored the Inca city of Machu Picchu high in Peru's Andes, Diaz wore over her shoulder an olive green messenger bag emblazoned with a red star and the words "Serve the People" printed in Chinese on the flap, perhaps Chinese...
