    How a 1980s sci-fi flick became an inspiration for Marxist tracts"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubblegum.” It’s one of my favorite movie lines of all time, but there are other reasons I love John Carpenter’s sci-fi action movie They Live, which celebrates its 30th anniversary later this year. Starring the 1980s professional wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, it is one of the best B-movies of the era. Kurt Russell was supposed to play the lead role, but Carpenter felt that after directing so many Russell vehicles, he should go with someone...

  • Hungary Discontinues Gender Studies Programs: ‘Ideology, Not Science’

    Breitbart ^ | 10 Aug 2018 | Thomas D. Williams Ph.d
    The Hungarian government is discontinuing programs in gender studies at state-run universities after determining the programs serve no identifiable purpose and are based on “ideology rather than science.” Bence Rétvári, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Human Resources (EMMI), said that university degrees must be rooted in a scientific basis, whereas gender studies, “like Marxist-Leninism,” are more aptly termed ideology than science, and are inappropriate matter for university-level education. A spokesman for the Hungarian government told Breitbart News that there is no demand for gender studies graduates in the Hungarian job market.
  • My Outline for a Federal Wealth Tax

    To pay off the ~$21 trillion dollar federal debt, which amounts to about $60,000 per American, it is probably necessary to have annual federal wealth taxation. It is best to introduce the federal wealth tax when asset values are high, so a smaller percentage of rich people's assets have to get taxed to pay off the national debt. The tax might be levied upon the total of net personal property financial holdings and the equity in real property. The rates might be: 1% on the equity in real property habitually resided in by the filer(s), 2% on the equity in...

    A new opinion piece in a Texas State University student newspaper tells white students “Your DNA is an Abomination.” “When I think of all the white people I have ever encountered - whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friend, police officers, et cetera - there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student author Rudy Martinez writes in the University Star. Without much biological explanation, Martinez informs white readers, “You were not born white. You became white… You don’t give a damn.” Later in his rant, he calls the police “fascist foot soldiers” and says a “white supremacist...

    An op-ed in a Texas State University student newspaper Tuesday has sparked controversy for its blatant anti-white racism, according to the Washington Examiner. In "Your DNA is an Abomination," which seems to have been pulled from the pages of the University Star, philosophy student and self-proclaimed Marxist atheist Rudy Martinez begins by declaring that of all the white people he has ever encountered, "there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider 'decent.'" He went on to blather that "whiteness in the United States" is a "construct used to perpetuate a system of racist power" and that whites benefit from...

    Every responsible intelligence agency in the West has confirmed that agents of the Russian Federation are actively attempting to divide the United States along political, racial, and economic lines. The current administration has again confirmed as much just recently. The head of the FBI said so within the last few days while Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. This truth therefore begs the question – who is helping the FSB divide the American population? President Trump has said multiple times publicly that it is time for Americans to unite for a common future. In spite of this, the...
  • NYC home inventory is piling up "Even the cheapest homes are waiting for buyers"

    It’s not just luxury-home listings that are piling up in New York City. Even units for less than $1 million — within reach of far more people than a Billionaires’ Row penthouse — are hurting for buyers. In Manhattan, the inventory of sub-$1 million apartments surged 27 percent in June from a year earlier to 3,087, the most for the month since 2013, according to StreetEasy. Such listings jumped 17 percent to 2,738 in Brooklyn, and climbed 6 percent to 2,314 in Queens, a borough usually sought out for its relative affordability. Buyers at all price points are taking their...

    The corporate media has overwhelmingly praised Barack Obama’s speech in Johannesburg on Tuesday at an event commemorating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, calling it an “impassioned” defense of democracy, tolerance, equality and the liberal capitalist world order established after World War II. The reports have singled out Obama’s muted and indirect criticisms of Donald Trump’s “strongman politics” and the “utter loss of shame among political leaders” who are “caught in a lie and just double down and lie some more.” No notice is being taken in the press reports of two points in the rambling, 90-minute...

    ‘It is about Xi as the leader of the world’: Former detainees recount abuse in Chinese re-education centres Authorities in China’s far western Xinjiang province have made loyalty to President Xi Jinping a central part of an extensive political re-education campaign that requires detainees to swear allegiance to the Communist Party while forswearing a Muslim faith that they are told to repeat is “stupid.”Large numbers – researchers estimate the total in the hundreds of thousands – of people have been placed in Chinese facilities known as re-education centres, where they are forcibly indoctrinated. Many of those detained are Muslim Uyghurs...

    The chairman of the Democratic National Party, Tom Perez, on Tuesday said socialist political candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are the "future" of the party. Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described "democratic socialist" who defeated a top House Democrat in a recent primary election, symbolizes where the party is headed. The Obama-era Cabinet official said Ocasio-Cortez and Ben Jealous, a socialist running for governor in Maryland, are examples of "spectacular" candidates the party believes represents its future.

    Multiple Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) leaders are openly endorsing communism on social media, indicating that the already far-left organization has taken a sharp left turn. DSA has seen its ranks swell from 8,000 to over 42,000 dues-paying members since President Donald Trump was elected. In November of 2017, 15 DSA members were elected in school board, city council, alderman and other local races across the country, joining 20 other DSA members already in office. The party got a major boost last Tuesday when DSA-endorsed candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th Congressional District.

    Socialism, Marxism and Communism not only destroy nations, they kill the human soul. Civil society has staggered to the sickening stage where your life can now be totally ruined—not for what you said—but for what someone else said you said. Totally invented accusations against innocent parties, destructive ones that turn lives upside down, are free on Twitter and other hard core left social media, now a driving force of ‘communication’. Wishing people dead, threatening to kill the children of someone with whom you politically disagree, “F’ Donald Trump!” have become a social media norm.

    Democratic Socialist Candidate’s Primary Win Revoked After All Her Votes Forcibly Redistributed June 29, 2018 NEW YORK, NY—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was elated when reports broke that she had won the Democratic primary for her district, defeating long-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley Tuesday. But the democratic socialist was disappointed to discover that her win would be revoked by the DNC after all votes for her were confiscated and more equally distributed between the two candidates. Democrat officials quickly sent Ocasio-Cortez a bill for her vote earnings, which included a hefty tax on her 15,000+ votes, which would be dispensed more evenly between...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialists of America member who won a Democratic primary victory this week in New York's 14th Congressional District, failed to clearly explain democratic socialism on Friday. Ocasio-Cortez joined "The View" panel where Meghan McCain asked about her self-described Democratic socialist views. The candidate has been at the center of attention since her upset in Tuesday's primary against incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.), a 10-term congressman and member of the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives. Ocasio-Cortez is known for being one of the most left-leaning candidates in the 2018 midterm elections. "You consider yourself...

    Professor Ying Fuk-tsang, director of the divinity school at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, says that during the early years of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) some Christians became disappointed with church institutions. They thought God had taken away the power of Christianity to save humanity, so they joined the CCP as secret, or underground, members. He cited Yan Baohang, who was baptized when studying at the Fengtian (now Shenyang) Normal School and served as a trainee student secretary in the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA). He was later sent to the University of Edinburgh in Scotland for further...
