The Chinese crackdown in Tibet continues while protests move into surrounding provinces. China sent additional troops into restive areas and made more arrests in the Tibetan capital Lhasa in an effort to suppress anti-government protests even as the Dalai Lama offered face-to-face negotiations with Chinese leaders. Government officials acknowledged for the first time that the […]

Here's to a Horrible Olympiad!

Here's to a Horrible Olympiad!

I’m with John Derbyshire on the Olympics. At the Olympics, the Maoists will be dealing with free people from free nations, and there is only so much they can do to control them. It’s not clear they understand this. They’ve been living for decades in a bubble of unchallenged power, and are not very imaginative. […]

Luckily, the IOC is a famously neutral and non-political body capable of dispensing the privelege of hosting the Olympics to places that hold the best interests of the athletes at heart and do much to foster the spirit of international competition (such at the Tibetan Monk Beatdown and the Protestor Skeet Shoot). I say that […]

I was listening to Glenn Beck on the radio a day or so ago. He was inveighing on China and how one day that country will lumber ashore, like the Cloverfield monster, and rampage all through our economy, leaving us devastated and mostly confused. He was passionate and, as he usually is, pretty reasonable. Also, […]

This is exceptionally good news. In China it is known as the “sacred doctrine” and it has become one of the country’s bestselling books. Yet it has nothing to do with the thoughts of Chairman Mao and its teachings have been in conflict with the forces of Communism for generations. Demand for the Bible is […]

China has reason to cheer today, thank to Zhang Zilin, a lovely young woman who won the nation its first-ever Miss World tiara. She’s a very lucky woman. She managed to escape being one of the countless girls in China who were murdered by their government simply because they had the misfortune to be born […]

Just how much dirty money is Senator Clinton collecting? It looks like a whole lot. Hit the links at the article and consider a couple questions. First, how is it that so many dishwashers in Chinatown can afford thousand-dollar donations? Second, is it a good thing that the Clinton’s have such a long history with […]

Horrifying. It was around midnight when the long convoy of military vehicles drove into the district. They contained police officers from the anti-insurgency unit and the so-called “Lome-Ten,” a unit of gangsters and ex-convicts, who do the regime’s dirty work. They surrounded a monastery on Weiza Yandar Street. All the roughly 200 monks living there […]

Yuh oh. WASHINGTON (CNN) — China last week successfully used a missile to destroy an orbiting satellite, U.S. government officials told CNN on Thursday, in a test that could undermine relations with the West and pose a threat to satellites important to the U.S. military. According to a spokesman for the National Security Council, the […]

Bye Bye Google Ads

Based on Google’s decision to help China repress the free expression of ideas to and from its people, I’ve decided to pull the Google AdSense advertisements from my blog. I realize this isn’t much of a drop in the bucket for Google and not a great sacrifice on my part. Heck, the ads haven’t made […]
