Communism

Missing Man Formation

Tomorrow will mark my first Veteran’s Day without my father, a “greatest generation” veteran who served during World War II and the Korean War. These veterans not only saved America and the world from Nazism and Communism, they also taught three generations of Americans how to live.

Trump Joins Churchill And Reagan With Warsaw Speech

Communism and Nazism were stymied in the 20th century by Churchill and Reagan, and when President Trump said, “every foot of ground, and every last inch of civilization, is worth defending with your life,” the Warsaw speech made clear that, after eight years of appeasement by Barack Obama, the enemies of liberty will be opposed in the 21st century by Donald Trump.

Viktor Korchnoi: Chess Grandmaster, Soviet Defector, Pugnacious Competitor

Viktor Korchnoi never was a compliant Soviet citizen. Stubborn, uncompromising, even rude, he was no Communist model. Eventually Moscow denied him permission to travel abroad to play chess and promoted his great rival and former friend, Anatoly Karpov.

Propaganda Posters Document the Madness of Chinese Communism

American politics has been ugly of late. But political attacks in the U.S. cannot compare with those in modern China. This tumultuous process is captured by changing Chinese poster art.

Cruz: Obama Gave Castro 'Economic Lifeline'

Communists Win The Day

Erick Erickson, Red State

After a week of libs bellyaching about the US “torturing” terrorists, we have bowed to the terrorists of N. Korea and bailed out the Cuban regime that jails gays, Christians, & dissidents and engages in physical torture. The leftist outrage is more about hating the U.S. than hating human rights abuses.

Obama’s Betrayal Of The Fight For Freedom In Cuba

KGB's Old Headquarters of Lubyanka Glowers at New Russia, Much Like the Old

Russia Should Bury Lenin’s Body and the Rest of Communism

Burying Vladimir Lenin would be a powerful symbolic gesture to close an era. That still might not help the West understand what Vladimir Putin is, but it would emphatically show what he is not. And that would be no small feat at a time of dangerously rising tensions between Russia and the West.

When Liberty Knocked Down the Berlin Wall

We should celebrate a quarter century after the collapse of communism.  The events of 1989 represent a massive increase in liberty, a fantastic triumph of the human spirit.  With so little bloodshed everyday people ousted a gaggle of tyrannies.  They have given hope for future generations, and themselves, that freedom can emerge against seemingly impossible odds.

Obama’s New Containment Policy vs. Reagan’s Doctrine of “We Win, They Lose”

China Should Bury Mao Zedong, the Greatest Mass Murderer in History

Maoism is dead. However, the Chinese people remain in chains, though their fetters now are gold and silver.

Finding a Way Back From the Brink in Ukraine

The only thing worse than a completely unnecessary conflict in Ukraine would be a completely unnecessary conflict involving America. Even in the worst case the U.S. has no cause for military intervention.  Who controls the Crimea ain’t worth a possible nuclear confrontation.

Reagan Biographer Craig Shirley: GOP Resembles a Crime Family

Craig Shirley, Rush Limbaugh and Pat Caddell think the reason Congress has not gotten to the bottom of the IRS targeting of conservatives and Tea Party movement groups is because the establishment GOP wants the IRS to hobble these groups just as much or more than do the Democrats.

North Korea’s Kim Dynasty Consumes Its Own: No Love in this Family

The communist Democratic People's Republic of Korea has long has been the land of no good options, the geopolitical problem with no good answers. And the ongoing leadership transition—whether solidified or unsettled—isn’t likely to bring peace or stability to the region.
