Celebrating 200 Years of Communism

Two hundred years ago Karl Marx was born. He belongs in a small but important category: people who should never have existed. Unfortunately, we can’t retroactively erase him from history. But we shouldn’t treat his life like something to celebrate.

Conservative Senators Must Oppose Gina Haspel For CIA Director

In her testimony yesterday, Gina Haspel gave conservatives a rare insight into how operatives of the Deep State think and work – and it should scare everyone who saw it or has read about it. What’s more, Haspel gave conservatives concerned about Russia, China and the war Islam has declared on the West absolutely no reason to vote for her.

Where to Hold the Kim-Trump Summit?

The prospective summit is a dramatic, unpredictable step that just might fix a problem which appeared to be insoluble. The location of such a meeting should be equally unique. Both President Trump and Supreme Leader Kim have flair for the dramatic. Why shouldn’t their location choice for the summit reflect a little daring?

The Limits of American Patience

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Donald Trump’s presidency is many things, but there is one common denominator with all that has transpired since November 2016. The once unimaginable can become normal. When the veneer of conventional wisdom and practice is torn off, Americans learn that was not much there underneath after all, whether that idea is that we can never question open borders or Chinese commercial cheating—or whether it is complacency in our penchant to keep borrowing without worries over tomorrow.

Only You Can Get The Red Chinese Out Of America’s Colleges And Universities

Confucius Institutes are Chinese government-sponsored influence operations located at more than 100 American colleges and universities. Now our friends at the National Association of Scholars have made the job of fighting Red Chinese influence operations at America’s colleges and universities even easier by assembling an online “toolkit” that you can access through CHQ.

The Art Of The Trump Trade Deal

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

The status quo on trade with China is untenable. Trump can't back down here. He's where Ronald Reagan was at the start of his presidency, when the air traffic controllers called his bluff and walked off the job. The Gipper took an action that rocked the world: He fired them. If this plays out the way we all hope, Trump may score the biggest victory for freer and fairer trade practices in American history. If China doesn't back down, things could get ugly.

Washington Post Writer: Killing Down Syndrome People OK

Pro-abortion advocates, such as Ruth Marcus, claim they are standing up for the rights of American women. The reality is what they are advocating is a new wave of eugenics through which those who can, through pre-natal genetic testing, be determined to have Down syndrome or who are otherwise deemed undesirable are hunted down and killed.

Hillary Clinton And Our Hypersonic Missile Gap With Russia

Russia's hypersonic missile program was born at Skolkovo a vast Russian industrial espionage program with its genesis at the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, and Russian oligarch Vekselberg. It is driven by donors to the Clinton Foundation and was championed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Fatal Delusions of Western Man

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The greatest risk we are taking, based on utopianism, is the annual importation of well over a million legal and illegal immigrants, many from the failed states of the Third World, in the belief we can create a united, peaceful and harmonious land of 400 million, composed of every race, religion, ethnicity, tribe, creed, culture and language on earth. Where is the historic evidence for the success of this experiment, the failure of which could mean the end of America as one nation and one people?

Red Chinese Penetrating American Colleges And Universities

The Red Chinese are working hard to penetrate America's colleges and universities. Here's how you can fight back if one of your state’s colleges or universities hosts a Confucius institute or if you are an alumnus of such a college or university, or the university or college where your children are studying hosts a Confucius Institute.

Run Operation Iron Mask against North Korea’s Kim Jong-un

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is almost unique to the degree that power is exercised by one man. However, rather than taking "Little Rocket Man" out through violent regime change CHQ contributor Doug Bandow offers a not entirely tongue in cheek plan to substitute a new Kim Jong-un for the real one.

Stand With China’s Persecuted Christians

Churches in China have been demolished twice in the past month. Last December, the only Catholic Church in Zhifang, a village near Shaanxi, was destroyed for no apparent reason, 20 years after it opened, and now the Golden Lampstand, an evangelical church in serving 50,000 Christians in Linfen has been destroyed.

Counterpoint: China's 27-Year Undeclared War on the U.S.

In 1991 Chinese Communist leaders declared, "The new Cold War between China and America has begun.” China has been at war with us ever since.  And when your enemy says you are at war, then you are at war, whether you want to be or not.

How to Deal with Newly Empowered Xi Jinping

Politically, Washington should treat the PRC as a serious competitor. Depending on the issue, China may be adversary or friend. The U.S. should emphasize areas where the two nations’ interests coincide and look for compromises where interests diverge. Washington cannot dictate: negotiation over contested issues is inevitable.

Continuing Crack Down in Hong Kong Risks China’s International Reputation

Plenty of Hong Kong residents oppose independence, or at least the pursuit of independence against the PRC’s wishes. But they also believe in allowing people to express their views freely. Going after those deemed disrespectful toward China would be a nightmare.

Make a Deal with Russia: Neutralize Ukraine, End NATO Expansion

Taking NATO membership off the table would remove Moscow’s incentive to keep the Ukrainian conflict alive. Ukraine could develop economically and politically as it wished. Sanctions could end, encouraging economic integration from Europe through Ukraine onto Russia.

‘Little Rocket Man’ May Be in the Captain’s Chair, After All

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Kim Jong Un would be a fool to give up his missiles and nukes, and while the man is many things, a fool is not one of them. We are nearing a point where the choice is between a war with North Korea in which thousands would die, or confirming that the U.S. is not willing to put its homeland at risk to keep Kim from keeping what he already has—nuclear weapons and missiles to deliver them.

Navigating the Middle East Mess Left by Obama and Bush

If President Trump is serious about countering Iranian aggression and repairing the mess in the Middle East left by Obama and Bush, then steps must be taken across the region, otherwise Iran will assert political and economic dominance over the entire northern tier of the Middle East and become the Middle East’s Shi’ite superpower.

Is America Up for a Second Cold War?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Why is the containment of China in Asia the responsibility of a United States 12 time zones away? For while China seeks to dominate Eurasia, she appears to have no desire to threaten the vital interests of the United States. China’s Communism appears to be an ideology disbelieved by her own people, that she does not intend to impose it on Asia or the world. Again, are we Americans up for a Second Cold War, and, if so, why?

Why no one is talking about Trump’s game-changing deal

Salena Zito, New York Post

Donald Trump heralded his success last year when he brought jobs back to the Carrier plant in Indianapolis even before he was president and tweeted out his victory, leading to blanket media coverage. This time, he failed to celebrate a win and the news was happily ignored. Trump needs to remember that his megaphone isn’t just for the haters, but for the voters who are desperate to finally see real change.
