    Former Vice President Joe Biden has leveled harsh words at President Donald Trump for placing blame on “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. In a commentary published Sunday in The Atlantic, Biden wrote: “Today we have an American president who has publicly proclaimed a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and Klansmen and those who would oppose their venom and hate.” He said Trump has “emboldened white supremacists with messages of comfort and support.” …

    Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution during the 1960s was a disastrous failure and it created a capitalist society in rural China, noted one professor at an event held by the Cato Institute. Humanities professor Frank Dikotter, who works at the University of Hong Kong, noted that capitalism sprang up from the ashes of the Cultural Revolution, where millions were killed by Mao's communist regime. The Cultural Revolution didn't spontaneously appear, Dikotter said, as others believe. In fact, the Cultural Revolution began in 1962 until 1966, where a "socialist education campaign enforced by Mao" took place in Chinese schools. Dikotter pointed out,...

    "Do you just want your kids to be test machines and cheap workers for corporations?"Lily Tang Williams, a mother of three, testified before the Colorado State Board of Education that Common Core was similar to the education she received growing up in Mao’s Communist China. “Common Core, in my eyes, is the same as the Communist core I once saw in China,” Williams said. “I grew up under Mao’s regime and we had the Communist-dominated education — nationalized testing, nationalized curriculum, and nationalized indoctrination.” In a post at FreedomWorks, Williams wrote about her experience with the Chinese education system: Our...

    More than $2.5 billionn (£1.6 billion) is being spent on events to mark the 120th anniversary of the birth of Mao Zedong, to the fury of many Chinese citizens. The money is being directed towards Mao’s birthplace of Shaoshan, where a tourist information center will be renovated and his former residence restored, according to the Changsha Evening News. High-speed rail stations and new highways will also be built to impress the expected influx of visitors. … However, Chinese internet users have criticized the sum of money the city plans to spend—far greater than originally planned—more than 37 years after Mao’s...

    The Wall Street Journal recently published an article titled "Reading Hayek in Beijing", in relation to the award of Manhattan Institute's Hayek Prize to Yang Jisheng, a Chinese journalist and author of Tombstone, a painstakingly researched history of famine in China during the period of Mao Zedong. Prior to the communist revolution, China was a highly advanced economy. With the implementation of Mao's Red Book teachings, China suffered many episodes of starvation, poverty, and economic collapse. Yang lost his father during the famine that took 36 million Chinese lives during 1958-1962. The article noted that the source of all the...

    Yes, that’s right, possums, Anita Dunn, former Obama aide who told a group of high school students that Mao Tse Tung was one of her two favorite political philosophers [1], has been hired by Tory hopeful David Cameron [2] to help him prep for tomorrow’s televised debate with Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown. The British election hangs in the balance. Ms. Dunn had helped Obama “de-posh” himself during the campaign, showing him how to mimic looks of concern and concentration, how and when to frown, when to smile, and the makeover seemed to work. At any rate, Obama won. Can...

    In the era whose secret he uncovered, a journalist's office would have looked just like the one where Yang Jisheng works now. The tiled floor, the grimy window panes, the desk piled two feet high with papers, envelopes and books. The Mao-era radiators. The cigarette ash and the dust. Under Mao Zedong, Yang's good fortune was to find a job as a reporter with China's state-run Xinhua news agency. His misfortune had been to see his father die of hunger in 1961, at the height of the famine that killed an estimated 36 million people: "When my dad died, I...

    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 1936 Mao Tse-Tung, then a cave-dwelling revolutionary, told Edgar Snow his life story. Snow recorded Mao's self-serving autobiography in Red Star Over China, which for decades made the American's name as the leading reporter in China. Back in China twenty-four years later, Snow was pestered by news agencies enquiring about mass starvation. The Snow of the 1930s had gone into the field to see for himself a prolonged drought in the north-west, where people were rumoured to be selling their children. But this time he relied on his access to top officials such as Premier Zhou Enlai, and foreigners...

    In the naivety of my early walk I constantly prayed "God let my heart feel as yours feels, let my eyes see as yours see, let my ears hear what yours hear." One day He spoke to my heart and told me that such knowledge would destroy me. I realized I was not made to be able to bear the burdens of humanity, that task is reserved for God alone. I believe that God is a God of strategy and He positions His people in every dark place in the earth and also that it is imperative that we, the...

    When Media Matters warned readers on Christmas Eve that “posting will be light for the next week and a half,” who knew they meant both quality and quantity. Apparently at a loss for something important to write about — and we all know what a slow news week it’s been — today Media Matters’ Eric “the Excitable” Boehlert posts another vapid, hysterical squib, this one entitled “Surprise! Breitbart’s Big Government doesn’t understand pop culture”. Well, that certainly would be a surprise, since Big Government/Big Hollywood founder Andrew Breitbart lives in Tinseltown, and his site boasts contributors like Saturday Night Live...
