    Lawmakers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania sent a letter to Walmart executives earlier this month asking them to "demonstrate their corporate responsibility" and stop the sale of items with Soviet imagery. The officials argued that carrying the items meant Walmart was participating in "promotion, among its customers worldwide, of totalitarianism, human rights abuse and suppression of freedom and democracy, the values that allowed such corporations as Walmart to grow and prosper.”

    Hollywood producers are increasingly catering to the Chinese. This raises serious concerns over the strong media influence the 'Communist Party' could gain over global movie markets... And as China’s 'market power' continues to grow, Chinese audience appeal is likely to become the de facto Hollywood policy for approving scripts. That’s troubling. It’s likely the Communist Party is aware of the sway they now have on American entertainment—and they likely intend to expand it....As 'Hollywood caters to the dominant Chinese market', more of this 'geopolitical propaganda' may (will) creep into domestic films, helping to promote Chinese values abroad and strengthening the...
  • Gulags were 'compassionate', 'educational' institutions, say trans rights campaigners

    Students at a leading London university have been condemned as blind to reality after defending the system of Soviet Gulag labour camps where thousands perished as “compassionate” places of rehabilitation. Trans rights campaigners at Goldsmiths University described the Gulags as benign places where inmates received education, training and enjoyed the opportunity to take part in clubs, sports and theatre groups. In fact most historians agree they were a brutal network of labour camps used by Stalin’s Soviet dictatorship to incarcerate internal opponents and so-called "enemies of the state", resulting in the death of more than an estimated 1.05 million people....

    MELANIA TRUMP is the wife of President Donald Trump, 72. As such she is a divisive figure for some. Issa Rae has said she will cancel her TV show Insecure if Melania likes it. Melania Trump is a former-model from Slovenia and mother-of-one to Barron Trump. She married Donald Trump in 2005, and became First Lady upon his election last year.

    Politico ^ | 9/03/18
    Just a decade ago, “socialism” was a dirty word in American politics. Debates over its merits were mostly limited to obscure blogs, niche magazines and political parties on the other side of the Atlantic. But more recently Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a handful of other politicians have breathed new life into the label, injecting a radical alternate vision for the U.S. economy into the mainstream political debate. Ahead of the midterms, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, and Kansas’ James Thompson have proudly held up their endorsements from Democratic Socialists of America, the country’s largest socialist group, whose numbers...

    Violent anti-Trump rhetoric, harassment of White House officials and attacks on the president’s supporters have seemingly become the new norm since Trump took office. In the latest incident on Sunday, Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings joked that it would be a “catastrophe” if anyone saved President Trump from drowning. (RELATED: Dem Rep. Alcee Hastings Jokes About Trump Drowning In The Potomac River) The Daily Caller compiled a list of nearly two-dozen incidents alone since January in which Democratic officials made violent jokes about the president and his supporters, Trump officials were harassed in public and other disturbing incidents that lowered the...

    Chinese state-owned firm winning contracts to print foreign currencies as country seeks to expand global reach and influence China is printing foreign currencies on a massive scale as Beijing seeks to increase its influence on the world economy and geopolitics. Multiple sources in the China Banknote Printing and Minting Corporation confirmed to the South China Morning Post last month that money production plants across the country were running at near full capacity to meet an unusually high quota set by the government this year. Most of the demand comes from participants in the “Belt and Road Initiative” and one source,...
  • Heng Gets Facebook Blocked (California R candidate)

    Elizabeth Heng nearly beat incumbent Democratic congressman Jim Costa in California’s open primaries in early June. The 53–47 outcome would have made her the darling of the national political media, had she been a Democrat. She will face Costa again in the general election in November. My colleague Alexandra DeSanctis wrote an excellent piece last month profiling the young, smart, 33-year-old Republican contender. So this happened yesterday. Heng’s campaign had tried to place this video as an ad on Facebook. It begins with her family’s roots — amidst the horror of Cambodian genocide. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUJXqJ4f_to And Facebook responded with a...

    Some of you need to cease the denial and accept the harsh reality that the left hates you. It’s a fact, as much as the liberal gaslight gang and the conserva-sissy weakhearts deny it. You can tell that leftists hate you by the way that leftists tell you that they hate you.Take Sarah Jeong, please – hey, the New York Times was happy to get this bitter creep onboard because of her history of virulent racism. The Times saw her hate as a plus, not a negative, an asset, not a liability. You can’t draw any other conclusion – if you...

    Officials in Portland, Ore., are worried the far-right rally planned for this weekend could turn into “another Charlottesville.” Fears of violent protests in the area are rising ahead of the rally scheduled on Saturday by Patriot Prayer, a conservative group founded by far-right Senate candidate Joey Gibson. In a “Hate Watch” report, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) warned “threats of violence” are looming over the upcoming rally, which it suggested could be “another Charlottesville.” The report comes days after Gibson said in a Facebook post last week that the “Freedom March” rally would be held at a location that...

    President Trump held a raucous rally in Tampa, Florida, Tuesday night. Thousands of supporters packed the arena to hear Trump hammer his critics and tout his administration’s accomplishments. There was plenty of hecklers, comedy and chants about Hillary and 2020. Trump stopped to pick on one of his favorite targets, the media, approximately half-way through the speech. The president heckled the press in the press pen as "fake news" and the audience roared, chanting "Fake News" and "CNN Sucks" at the reporters. On of the favorite targets of the audience was CNN's Jim Acosta, who tweeted multiple videos of the...

    A billboard that went up Tuesday on Pacific Avenue in Tacoma doesn’t mince words. “There are NAZIS in our neighborhood,” it reads against a black background. Tacoma Against Nazis paid for the sign, which hovers over a bank just north of South 72nd Street. The same group held a protest outside a tattoo parlor in the 1100 block of South 72nd Street on June 22. The group contends the parlor’s owners and staff are white supremacists. The parlor is less than a mile from the billboard. “We wanted something close to the tattoo parlor but we also wanted something in...

    Film director Rob Reiner says that those who vote Republican at the upcoming midterm elections are endorsing the “destruction” of America’s democracy. In a tweet on Monday, Reiner made a rallying cry for people to vote for Democratic candidates instead of their Republican counterparts, who he described as sexist, racist, and anti-democratic. “Let’s be clear. At this point in our history, a vote for a Republican is a vote for institutional racism, sexism and a vote to enable the destruction of Democracy,” Reiner wrote on Twitter. “To Democrats: VOTE! To principled Republicans: VOTE DEMOCRATIC!”

    "Russia today is the country of the liberated woman," remarked Margaret Sanger upon her return from a 1934 tour of the Soviet Union. "The attitude of Soviet Russia toward its women...would delight the heart of the staunchest feminist," she wrote in 1935 for the Birth Control Review. But while Sanger was impressed with a growing Soviet effort to liberate women from "housework drudgery...and no pay or recognition tasks," she witnessed severe limitations in reproductive choices for women and foresaw a crisis in Soviet women's healthcare that has received extensive coverage in the media since the dismantling of the Soviet state....

    Hollywood stars took to social media to send messages of doom, gloom, and resistance to President Donald Trump in honor of Independence Day. “To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president. He doesn’t reflect all of our views — and we hope you know that the majority of us are ashamed,” wrote former Netflix talk show host Chelsea Handler. “We will rally each other and come back to the world one step at a time. #novemberiscoming #alsosorryabouthotdogs.” Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore offered a politically-charged message to his six million Twitter followers, “Happy Resistance Day!...

They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life's mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive and “patriarchal.” If you're a taxpayer—or paying for your kid's liberal arts degree—you're underwriting this gang of nihilists. You're supporting ideologues who claim that all truth is subjective; that all sex differences are socially constructed; and that Western imperialism is the sole source of all Third World problems. They are the post-modernists, pushing “progressive”...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) had stern words for the National Rifle Association on Tuesday, responding to the gun group's new president attacking student survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, for allegedly engaging in "civil terrorism." “The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told HuffPost. "They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation."
