Denial Isn’t Just a River in China…And Neither are 28,000 Others

Denial Isn’t Just a River in China…And Neither are 28,000 Others

China’s rivers are disappearing. After a three-year survey by the nation’s Ministry of Water Resourses, China has some 28,000 fewer rivers than everyone believed it had. Of course, the previous figure of roughly 50,000 was an official government number, and we all know we can trust the Chinese government to dispense accurate and timely information […]

Who is to Blame for Solyndra's Bankruptcy? Oh, You Won't Believe This One…

I’m pretty sure that if someone invented a Gall-O-Meter and pointed it toward Washington, the resulting overload explosion would leave a Chicxulub-sized crater. The Department of Labor, headed by anti-capitalist Hilda Solis, has launched its own investigation into SolyndraScam. It’s not looking toward the White House or the “green jobs” loan program or the board […]

Ever since I determined that President Obama has replaced that “The Buck Stops Here” placard with one that says “You Don’t Ever Want A Crisis to Go to Waste” on the Resolute Desk, I’ve been on the lookout for The Culprit. You know who The Culprit is. It’s the person or group who is actually […]

On Friday, the Nobel committee will award the Nobel Peace Prize to someone who truly deserves it, a Chinese dissident named Liu Xiaobo. Mr. Liu won’t be there to receive his award because he is in a Chinese prison, serving an 11-year sentence for “subversion”. His wife won’t be there either, because the tyrants in […]

China to Google: Get Bent! We’ll Censor Whatever We Want.

Two weeks ago, Google discovered what every other sentient being not blinded by the patchouli fumes of rampant hippiedom already knew: China is run by a bunch of murderous tyrants who aren’t nearly as interested in opening up their country as they are in keeping a couple of billion people under their decrepit thumbs. After […]

So here I am, listening to Ella Fitzgerald’s Christmas Album and browsing memeorandum when I come across this giant chunk of silliness from Thomas Friedman. Read the whole thing if you like, but I just want to swoop in and knock down a few low-hanging fruit. First, it’s patently ridiculous to say that Chinese people […]

Will Obama Rehabilitate Bush?

Victor Davis Hanson takes a look at P-E Obama’s early staffing picks and concludes that the Obama administration may well improve President Bush’s reputation. I think we are slowly (and things of course could change) beginning in retrospect to look back at the outline of one of most profound bait-and-switch campaigns in our political history, […]

It’s gotten to the point where Barack Obama doesn’t even need to hide his socialism. “It comes down to values – in America, do we simply value wealth, or do we value the work that creates it?” Obama said at a rally under the Gateway Arch. “I’m not giving tax cuts to folks who don’t […]

Oh yarf. BEIJING (Reuters) – The Beijing Olympics ended with a blaze of deafening fireworks on Sunday, bringing down the curtain on a Games that dazzled the world with sporting brilliance and showcased the might of modern day China. It looks like China got everything it wanted out of the Olympic Games: a clean bill […]

It not surprising that the Chinese felt the need to cheat their way to Olympic success but it does shock me just a little to know that they stole the national anthems played during the medal ceremonies. I keep hearing what a strong capitalist nation China is, but that’s not strictly true. China is a […]
