Will PIGS Fly?
Reporter: “So Shaq, have you been to The Parthenon?” Shaquille O’Neill: “No, I’ve been staying out of the clubs to focus on my game.” It would be easy to make fun of Shaq over his lack of knowledge of European History. He seems particularly uninterested in the traditions and folklore of Ancient Athens. Give the modern Hellenic economy two more years; and he may be | Read More »

“Life and Death in America” – Will We Learn From History’s Voices?
I love Rush, Ann, Glenn, and Dinesh, but nothing beats history for giving us a glimpse of things to come if radical Democrats are left unchecked. It is with absolutely no apology that I post more from Nien Cheng’s book, Life and Death in Shanghai. “One day, I was told by one of my remaining students besides Da De that Zhang Chunquiao, the Party boss | Read More »
Asia one more area Obama has failed to engage
I have been working with Joshua Treviño as an editor at Malaysia Matters (a site dedicated to tracking news and events in Malaysia from an American perspective). In this role, I have learned a great deal about the importance of Asia economically and strategically. Building on that, I have an article at the Huffington Post highlighting an issue that you might not be aware of | Read More »

Greentech hurts poor people, pollutes land.
Business as usual, in other words. Remember, it doesn’t count if it’s not impacting the First World: Some of the greenest technologies of the age, from electric cars to efficient light bulbs to very large wind turbines, are made possible by an unusual group of elements called rare earths. The world’s dependence on these substances is rising fast. Just one problem: These elements come almost | Read More »
Amateur Barack Obama’s Speechifying Causes an International Incident
While Americans are fixated on the weekend blizzard and the health care debate, the rest of the world is fixated on the disastrous “climate change” talks in Copenhagen.More importantly, though world leaders could not agree on much of anything significant, they could all agree on one thing: Barack Obama screwed up a delicate situation and unintentionally sunk the deal.For a man who is supposed to | Read More »
The Chinese Have Voted No on ObamaCare
Now that Senator Reid apparently has the 60 votes he needs for cloture, and it looks certain that the “health care reform” (sic) Bill will pass the Senate, there is an interesting development that is passing almost unnoticed. And it may make the passage of the Bill completely moot in the long-run. The Chinese government yesterday made what may be the most definitive and important | Read More »
Pictures of the Week
The White House and the Speaker both have flickr pages. And they are the gifts that keep on giving.First, we have the leader of the free world supplicating himself to the leader of world oppressors. Is he begging for more time to pay off his/our debt? Then we have Tiger and the Cougar or, as Moe said, a photo entitled “Tiger Would”. Consider this an | Read More »
How Cap and Trade Plans to Cripple Our Economy
If you can’t understand conceptually why a Cap and Trade system is such a bad deal, how about a concrete example? The European Union is a signatory of the Kyoto Protocols and have been dealing with a Carbon Cap and Trade system for several years. This article in today’s Wall Street Journal shows how the potential profit from the sale of carbon credits directly led | Read More »

America’s Great Leap Forward
Those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. When Barack Obama was campaigning for president in 2007, his backers frequently compared him to former president John F. Kennedy. After a year in office, however, President Obama’s words and actions align more closely with China’s despotic Chairman Mao than with JFK’s. When Mao Tse Tung conquered China in 1949, his secret goal | Read More »
Obama Bows to Chinese Premier AND President – UPDATED: Where Will President Obama Bow Next? And Why?
UPDATED: President Obama met China’s Premier, Wen Jiabao, on the Asian Apology Tour. As I predicted, President Obama bowed again, this time in a country in which bowing is considered an outdated custom indicative of a servile position at odds with the “social equality” that is part of the Communist philosophy. At a “Town Hall” style meeting the Chinese government set up for him in | Read More »
Diary of a Mad, “teabagger” woman
Listening to Obama’s “almost live” speech today on the economy and jobs, I feel compelled to pound out my thoughts and feelings on the keyboard instead of my bedroom wall. President Obama is so hell bent on pushing through his agenda that any credibility he may have had (at least with me) is completely shot. At the risk of sounding like a “crazy person” or | Read More »
