56 COMMUNIST PARTIES GATHER IN TURKEY TO CELEBRATE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMINTERN

By Trevor Loudon  |  The Epoch Times* Commentary The international communist movement just celebrated its 100th birthday at a gathering in Turkey. Far from using the occasion to confess their responsibility for 160 million to 200 million deaths and their legacy of torture, famine, and oppression, the assembled communists look forward to a bright future, in which Marxism-Leninism rules every corner of the globe. The “One-Hundredth Anniversary of the Founding of the Communist International: The Fight for Peace and Socialism Continues” was held in Read More...

IN PRAISE OF MASCULINE LOVE

Trevor Loudon  |  The Epoch Times*  | October 30, 2019,  Updated: November 6, 2019 Commentary I heard a love story recently that brought me to tears. It wasn’t a Shakespearean tragedy of star-crossed lovers. It wasn’t romantic at all. It wasn’t a tale of a mother’s self-sacrifice for her children—quite the opposite. It was a simple tale of masculine love—something so rarely praised and so often devalued that Western culture is dying for the very lack of it. A highly regarded U.S. military Read More...

Trevor Loudon  |  The Epoch Times*  | October 16, 2019, Updated: October 22, 2019 Commentary On Oct. 28, the two most powerful Democratic politicians in the United States, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), will headline the annual conference of J Street—a leftist (and, in reality, anti-Israel) lobbying organization. Schumer’s presence at the conference is especially significant because he has been long regarded as a pro-Israel voice in the Senate. He regularly speaks at the annual Read More...

AMERICAN MAOISTS RE-BRAND, FOCUS ON ELECTORAL POLITICS, TARGET THE SOUTH

Trevor Loudon  |  The Epoch Times*  |  October 10, 2019, Updated: October 10, 2019 Commentary America’s largest Maoist organization, Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), has re-branded itself “Liberation Road.” The new name is in line with a new strategy to place much more emphasis on electoral politics. The new strategy is bearing fruit as the pro-China communists have already helped to elect allies to public office in several states. With the word “socialist” dropped from their name, the comrades probably reason that their communism Read More...
