CNN and Liberals Hail MLK as Socialist

 

In a remarkable piece for CNN.com, writer John Blake underscored three ways we need to “update” our knowledge of Martin Luther King Jr. “to see how he spoke not only to his time, but to our time as well.” No. 2 is this eye-opener: King “was a socialist before it was cool.” Blake writes: There […]

Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour

 

Last Saturday I dropped off my two oldest sons and their friend at the theater. I planned to kill a couple of hours at the bookstore, on my laptop, at a coffee shop, whatever. When I got out of the car the balmy two-degree temperature in Pittsburgh prompted second thoughts. Instead, I strolled into the […]

Celebrating Marx at Carnegie Mellon University

 

Vladimir Lenin was said to have boasted that capitalists would give his communists the rope to hang them. The self-anointed keeper of the Marxist flame, co-namesake of history’s deadliest ideology — Marxism-Leninism — would have chortled at what’s happening at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. In 2018, this prestigious university, named for two of history’s […]

Charles Manson and the Weather Underground

 

Most articles on the death of madman Charles Manson opened by mentioning his role in the diabolical Tate-LaBianca murders. The AP story started this way: Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los […]

The Kremlin, LBJ, and the JFK Assassination

 

President Trump recently authorized a mass declassification of documents relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963. Among the material subsequently released, one document that instantly grabbed headlines was a December 1966 FBI memo reporting the reaction of Soviet and Communist Party USA officials to the Kennedy shooting. The document was […]

New York Times Newsflash: Communism — Great for Chinese Women!

 

I recently wrote here about a wondrous story in the New York Times peddling a piece of political agitprop we would’ve once expected from the Daily Worker or Pravda. The mighty Times ran a peculiar article informing its wide-eyed readership that Soviet Bloc women enjoyed better sex under communism. For the Times and its liberal-progressive […]

Let’s Remember Too That Trump Took It to Venezuela’s Maduro

 

Kim Jong Un stole the thunder (or absorbed the thunder) in President Trump’s UN speech on Tuesday, and deservedly so. What Trump said about Kim and North Korea was no doubt the most significant part of his address. I wrote about it here the next day, and we’re now hearing the blowback from the little […]

When Bill Clinton Threatened to ‘End’ North Korea

 

The liberal media is going ballistic over President Trump’s UN speech, launching into collective orbit over Trump again mocking little man Kim as “rocket man.” This time, President Trump made that jab not from his Twitter account on a Sunday morning but from the world’s biggest international stage: the vaunted assembly of the United Nations […]

Black and Conservative… and Forgotten

 

It was 40 years ago, August 31, 1977, that George Schuyler died. He has been largely forgotten, and that’s a shame. At one point, Schuyler was one of the most recognized and read columnists in America, particularly from his platform at one of America’s great black newspapers — the Pittsburgh Courier. He was also one […]

Communism: Viagra for the New York Times

 

A fascinating piece appeared on August 19 in the New York Times, a timeless organ of outrageousness that never ceases to amaze with its ideological asininity. I’m tempted to say that this piece is beyond the pale even for the Times, but that bar long ago was set unsurpassably high. Still, this piece is another […]
