Population Control Policy Backfires–China’s One-Child Policy Comes to an End

The news of China stopping its one-child policy seems a cause for celebration to anyone who is pro-life.  The policy of population control has been in place for nearly 40 years and has killed millions of children.  It has left a nation bereft of a generation to take their people into the future, and now they are scrambling to recreate their loss of human resources. God has stopped this atrocity, and that is truly a reason to celebrate.  However, the motives and facts behind the change is mind Read more […]

Establishment Member Is Telling Everyone to Prepare for Economic Breakdown

The advice sounds like it comes from a prepper or a goldbug, but it is coming from a bona fide political establishment member in Britain. If you frequent conservative and libertarian blogs that analyze the state of our economy, you probably have read this kind of advice before. You could easily see it on an alternative media twitter feed: “Advice on the looming crash, No.1: get hard cash in a safe place now; don’t assume banks & cashpoints will be open, or bank cards will work.” “Crash Read more […]

Government Bureaucrats Can’t Predict Our Economic Future

Whether it is managing healthcare or alternative energy, our government bureaucrats repeatedly fail to see our economic future. As we all know, our stock market is finally starting to shred the delusions that have built it up over the past months and years. One major domino that started the cascade was China’s experience of the same thing. When China started to show major signs of shredding, Jack Lew was asked about it. Jack Lew is President Barack Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury. I’d Read more […]

The First Victim of a Chinese Currency War: the Chinese People

The news is reporting on a Chinese currency war as if the key to economic prosperity is found in debasing the currency. The Chinese people need stuff so they have to buy stuff. In order to do this as efficiently as possible, they need to use money when they buy stuff. Unhappily, rather than use a real commodity for money, the government banking system has commandeered the social institution of money and replaced the commodities with paper symbols (or computer figures). So now China has begun Read more […]

Newborn Shoved Down Toilet Makes International News; Planned Parenthood Still Federally Funded

The story of the baby wedged in the toilet comes to us from the mainstream news outlet, CNN: “Newborn baby pulled alive from toilet in Beijing.” Police are searching for the mother of a newborn baby girl found wedged face-down in a Beijing toilet on Sunday. Residents heard cries from a public toilet block and notified police, according to the Beijing Times. “Her head was upside down and her body was falling into the drain. We could only vaguely see her feet from the side,” Qian Feng, the local Read more […]

Three Republicans Join Dems in Federally Funding Humanitarian Baby Killers

The Senate Republicans join Dems in ending the so-called “gag rule” which prohibits federal funds from going to fund groups that provide abortions. Politico.com reports, “GOP senators join Dems to lift abortion ‘gag rule’” Three Senate Republicans, including vulnerable incumbent Mark Kirk of Illinois, helped Democrats advance a repeal of the so-called global gag rule that restricts U.S. funding to humanitarian organizations that provide abortions. In a Senate Appropriations Committee Read more […]

China Collapse Worse than Greece?

Australia media is reporting on a China collapse that might be “monstrous.” An Australian news outlet is reporting, “Chinese chaos worse than Greece.” WHILE the world worries about Greece, there’s an even bigger problem closer to home: China. A stock market crash there has seen $3.2 trillion wiped from the value of Chinese shares in just three weeks, triggering an emergency response from the government and warnings of “monstrous” public disorder. And the effects for Australia Read more […]

The Chinese Culture War with Islamic Extremism

While the Chinese culture war is not a complete model for government policy, it might provide helpful ideas for Americans. This blog entry showed up in my Facebook feed and I think it is quite interesting: “China Declares War on Islam!” As an American and a Christian who believes that the government is not responsible for all aspects of society, I can’t approve of every tool the communist government gives itself in the Chinese culture war with Islamic violence. But I do think that we Read more […]

Obama Joins With China to Fight Global Warming

Fresh off a historic electoral beating, during which his radical policies and scandals were the primary inspiration for voters to return congressional control to the GOP, President Obama nonetheless decided to double down on one of the Left’s favorite fears, global warming. Early today in Beijing, Obama said the U.S. would step up its effort to reduce pollution. This no doubt means shutting down more coal-, oil- or nuclear-fueled plants in favor of solar death ray machines like the one at Read more […]

Democracy in Hong Kong? Only Over Beijing’s Dead Body

Democracy in Hong Kong? Only Over Beijing’s Dead Body — But Hopefully Not Over The Demonstrators’ Bodies. Hong Kong is part of China, but enjoys a charmed existence.  Administered separately from the rest of the People’s Republic of China, the territory respects civil liberties while hosting the world’s freest economy.  But democratic Hong Kong is not. Demonstrators are pressing Beijing to make good on its promise to Great Britain to provide what London never did while the territory Read more […]

Barack Obama to China, India: Please Slit Your Throats for Me

I can’t believe how stupid some people can be. The Washington Times headline is: “Obama pleas to China, India to forgo use of coal falls on deaf ears.” Their ears are not deaf! The problem is not their ears but the fact that they have functional brains and a healthy desire to thrive. They don’t want to impoverish themselves so that a few liberals can boast nonsense about “saving the planet.” Coal may have played an integral role in turning the U.S. into the world’s top economic superpower, Read more […]

There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch—Or It Is Not Enough Without Free Cash?

I have to admit that this story, in the Sydney Morning Herald is one of the best I have ever read. A stunt by a Chinese tycoon to provide free lunch to 300 homeless people in one of New York’s finest restaurants degenerated into a shambles as word spread that the participants would not be receiving an expected cash handout. The first simmerings of discontent emerged in Central Park’s Loeb Boathouse – backdrop for films such as When Harry Met Sally and television shows including Sex and the Read more […]
