Jimmy Lai: Jailed by the CCP While Fighting for Freedom in Hong Kong
This week, while we celebrate the work of America's founders, I honor a living freedom fighter: billionaire businessman Jimmy Lai. When Communist China crushed freedom in Hong Kong, Lai could have gone anywhere in the world and lived a life of luxury. But he chose to stay in Hong Kong and go to jail. A new documentary, “The Hong Konger,” tells his story. Lai grew up in poverty in China.

Socialism Ruins The Environment
“Greed of the fossil fuel industry” is “destroying our planet,” says Sen. Bernie Sanders. Young people agree. Their solution? Socialism. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says socialism creates “an environment that provides for all people, not just the privileged few.” “Nonsense,” says Tom Palmer of the Atlas Network in my new video.

Viral Influencer Gloria Alvarez Fights Socialism
There’s a socialist wave in Latin America. Mexico, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil recently elected leftists. These politicians at least distance themselves from thugs like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, but all propose socialism-lite policies giving government more control over more people. Why don’t people in Latin America learn from the mistakes of the past? Gloria Alvarez, a social media…
Looking Up, Looking Down, Seeing Red

Why the Prevalence of JFK Assassination Conspiracy Theories?
WASHINGTON -- I am engaged in reading a very fine book by my colleague, Paul Kengor. It was written six years ago, so do not feel bad if you missed it. You still have time. It is called “A Pope and a President.” It covers the lives of John Paul II and Ronald Reagan, and, as its coverage is chronological, I just read its treatment of the assassination of President John Kennedy. This will be the…
Former CNN Moscow Chief Feels 'Intense Sadness' at Gorbachev's Demise
In the immediate wake of the world learning that former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev was finally acting like a good communist, CNN’s immediate reaction was to air glowing eulogies for a man who led one of the most evil empires in human history.

Editor’s Pick: Washington Examiner on Teaching the Evils of Communism

JFK, Reagan and Biden
President Biden’s speech from Warsaw Saturday night, reminded me of two previous presidents who delivered speeches confronting the autocracy that was then the Soviet Union and is now Russia, led by Vladimir Putin, a man Biden has rightly called a war criminal. On June 26, 1963, Kennedy spoke before the Berlin Wall which the Soviets had erected to stem the flow of Berliners out of the communist…

This week, the reliably pro-communist New York Times found itself in more hot water after it published a Sunday column from an official with a Chinese Communist Party outfit without proper disclosure as well as failing to note that said author appeared last year with longtime columnist and pro-China defender Thomas Friedman at an event for a think tank tied to Chinese state-run media…
Press May Hate Brutal Putin Now, But Gushed Over ‘Mighty’ Soviet Union

What Is America’s Foreign Policy?
Oh, for the good old days of the Soviet Union. America’s foreign policy and goals were clear then: containment and opposition to communist expansion. Nuclear weapons were a deterrent, but neither side believed the other would use them. Russian President Vladimir Putin has changed the game by threatening to use nukes should the U.S. directly confront his forces now raping Ukraine and committing…
