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 […]

Trump’s Excellent Speech in Poland, on Poland, and About Poland

 

Before I write this defense of Donald Trump in Poland, let me remind readers — from the right and the left — that I come to this subject with some credibility. Not only have I written many articles and even books on the likes of John Paul II and Poland but I’ve been highly critical […]

Marking July 4th (and Natural Law) With Mark Levin

 

For this July 4th, take in something more lasting and satisfying than a beer and a hot dog and a fireworks display. Take a look at Mark Levin’s new book, Rediscovering Americanism and the Tyranny of Progressivism. The latter half of the title will draw eyes right away. Glancing the table of contents, I almost […]

Remembering the Rohna: A World War II Secret and Tragedy

 

Any veteran of World War II can tell you some interesting stories. But for Frank E. Bryer, his story — one he could never forget — was a terrible one. It began the moment his ship, the Rohna, was sunk. When that ship went down on November 26, 1943, Frank’s life changed forever. And very […]

Trump, Putin, and Pope Francis — and the Plot to Kill Pope John Paul II

 

On May 13, 1981, shortly after 5:00 p.m., Pope John Paul II, the first non-Italian pope in 455 years, the first Slavic pope ever, and — to the great dismay of the Soviet Union — an intensely anti-communist Pole from the heart of the Communist Bloc, slowly rode through St. Peter’s Square in his white […]

A Trumped Up May Day

 

Today is the annual high holy day in the Marxist-Leninist liturgical calendar. It is May Day. And the glorious comrades and their wider assortment of brethren on the socialist-progressive-liberal left are celebrating, as they usually do, with protest. Whether they are marching for the beleaguered worker or for the beleaguered climate, they are marching nonetheless […]
