  • Stalin 'used secret laboratory to analyse Mao's excrement'

    BBC ^ | 28 January 2016 | Steven Rosenberg
    A former Soviet agent says he has found evidence that Joseph Stalin spied on Mao Zedong, among others, by analysing excrement to construct psychological portraits. According to Russian newspaper reports, in the 1940s Stalin's secret police had set up a special department to get its hands on people's faeces. The ambitious aim: to analyse samples of foreign leaders' stools. (snip)

    NEW YORK — Before the United Nations can save the planet, it needs to clean up its own house. And as scandal after scandal has unfolded over the past decade, from Oil for Food to procurement fraud to peacekeeper rape, the size of that job has become stunningly clear. But any understanding of the real efforts that job entails should begin with a look at the long and murky career of Maurice Strong, the man who may have had the most to do with what the U.N. has become today, and still sparks controversy even after he claims to have...

    "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...

    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 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...

    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...

    A State Council think-tank in China has warned Washington that the US will come off worst in a trade war if it imposes sanctions against Beijing over the two nations' currency spat. Ding Yifan, a policy guru at the Development Research Centre, said China could respond by selling holdings of US debt, estimated at over $1.5 trillion (£963bn). This would trigger a rise in US interest rates. His comments at a forum in Beijing follow a string of remarks by Chinese officials questioning US credit-worthiness and the reliability of the dollar. China's authorities seem split over how to respond to...

In opening up about the 1952 debacle, the CIA is finding ways to use it as a teaching tool. Mistakes of the past can serve as cautionary tales for today's spies and paramilitary officers taking on al-Qaida and other terrorist targets.

Her earnest appeal to the teenagers to fight their own wars, as Mao had counseled when challenged within his own party, was clearly meant as a call to activism. "You fight your war and I'll fight mine," she quoted Mao as saying, because apparently Mao was all about personal choice. Of course, Mao's usual response to those who questioned his...

    WASHINGTON - Chinese leader Mao Zedong proposed sending 10 million Chinese women to the United States, in talks with top envoy Henry Kissinger in 1973, according to documents released Tuesday. The powerful chairman of the Chinese Communist Party said he believed such emigration could kickstart bilateral trade but could also "harm" the United States with a population explosion similar to China, according to documents released Tuesday by the State Department on US-China ties between 1973 to 1976. In a long conversation that stretched way past midnight at Mao's residence on February 17, 1973, the cigar-chomping Chinese leader referred to the...

However, the CCP unexpectedly survived and still controls China, a nation with one fifth of the world’s population. An unavoidable question arises: Is the CCP today still truly communist? No one in today’s China, including Party members, believes in communism. After...

    You've probably heard about the UMass student who claimed that Department of Homeland Security agents visited him after he checked out Mao's Little Red Book from the library. Well, he has now admitted that he made the story up.

    "The biggest Asian tiger!" "The new century's economic miracle!" "The next global superpower!" These are some of the clichés used to describe the People's Republic of China which, its Communist political structures notwithstanding, has experienced remarkable economic growth during the past four or five years. In a short time the People's Republic has emerged as the world's second largest importer of crude oil, just behind the United States, the biggest global exporter of textiles, and the world's largest manufacturer of a wide-range of cheap consumer goods. According to some estimates, China, whose population will reach a staggering 1.5 billion people...

    China website highlights early DPRK-China tensions China-NK relations by Michael Rank If you're a Great Leader it can feel a little uncomfortable having another Great Leader on your doorstep, and a very interesting report in Chinese highlights intense rivalry between Mao Zedong and Kim Il-sung in the 1950s and 60s. This short report says North Korea took part in “underground activities” against China's Korean minority after the Korean war in order to instill in them a “fatherland concept and ideology of the leader”, telling them their fatherland was the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and their leader was General Kim...

    A Commie Christmas Gift December 23, 2003 Christmas this year is brightened by the news that nominally Communist China has taken a big step toward enshrining private property rights in its constitution. For some reason it reminds me of a Christmas story told by the late Leonard Read, a champion of property rights and market economics. One year, on the day before Christmas, Read greeted his heavily laden mailman and asked him how he was doing. The man groaned, “Worst day we’ve ever had!” Later that day Read went to a local store for a bit of last-minute shopping. It...

    The first thing one notices about Qin Xiao-meng is her warm smile, set upon a face that reflects a sense of peace and fulfillment. It is not outwardly apparent that the 80-year-old woman suffered years of hardship and persecution during China's tumultuous Communist Cultural Revolution, from 1966 to 1976. She was branded a "bourgeois authority" for her career as an English professor. The revolution also affected her husband and oldest brother, accused of being spies, and her father, whose life work was taken away by revolutionary rebels. And there are more stories, many more. Qin's "Heartbeats and Heartaches: Memoirs of...

    The cult of Mao Zedong re-emerged with a bang and a flash yesterday as tens of thousands of worshippers paid homage in the "great helmsman's" hometown to mark the 110th anniversary of his birth. In a remarkable display of idolatry for an atheist nation, visitors burned incense and lit bonfires of offerings before bowing deeply before a huge golden statue of the former party chairman, whose presence is growing stronger nearly 28 years after his death. From midnight to early afternoon, revellers set off tonnes of deafening firecrackers and fireworks in a spontaneous festival to celebrate Mao's birth. Most appeared...

    SHANGHAI, China - He dismissed capitalists as "running dogs," banned private property and sent millions to prison camps — or worse — for showing an interest in making money. But now an incongruous new identity beckons for Mao Zedong: management guru. With the 110th anniversary of his birth on Friday, books, articles and seminars are mining Mao's struggles and writings for tips on how to get ahead in business, melding a national interest in his life with China's modern craze for making money. The Communist Party is pitching in, publishing four volumes on Mao as a guerrilla problem-solver. "Mao offers...

      Mao Zedong Thought in Chinese university students' eyes Nowadays, in China's universities, the film "Infernal Affairs" from Hong Kong, the pop band "F4" from Taiwan and bluetooth cell phone are the hot topics among students born in the 1980s. However, when trying to express their firm stand, studnets still like to say "swear by Chairman Mao." In fact, the influence of Mao Zedong, who was born 110 years ago, on the youth is not merely represented in what they say. Cheng Haowen, an astronomic major at Nanjing University in east China's Jiangsu Province said that what is precious in...
