MILKSHAKES TO MOLOTOV COCKTAILS: THE US LEFT VEERS TOWARD VIOLENCE

COMMENTARY Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times | July 29, 2019 Updated: July 29, 2019 The left in the United States is on a path to acceptance and even encouragement of political violence. Desperate to achieve traction against the obvious economic and political successes of President Donald Trump, the left is increasingly willing to use violence—from low-level “milkshaking” assaults to life-endangering terrorism—as a tool to shut down opposition. Unless stopped, the left will take the United States down a very Read More...

HOW MARXISTS TOOK OVER THE AMERICAN LABOR MOVEMENT

COMMENTARY Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times | July 24, 2019 Updated: July 24, 2019 Despite taking second place to the “mainstream” media, and the stiff competition from Hollywood, academia, and leftist churches, organized labor is still a major “transmission belt” for communist ideas to the American “masses.” This wasn’t always the case. For many years, labor in the United States was staunchly anti-communist. However, since 1995, American unions have largely fallen under Marxist control. This gives the far Read More...

PRO-CHINESE COMMUNISTS WORKING TO MOBILIZE 40 MILLION NEW VOTERS AGAINST TRUMP

Commentary | The Epoch Times | July 11, 2019 Updated: July 11, 2019 President Donald Trump and the Republican Party had better be ready for a tsunami of new Democratic voters coming their way in 2020. Far from the easy victory many pundits are predicting, there’s a strong chance that the president and his party (strong economy notwithstanding) may be overwhelmed by an unexpected wave of new voters coming mainly from the South and Southwest. The same pro-China, communist-led organizations that Read More...

IS THE SHANGHAI COOPERATION ORGANIZATION THE NEW EVIL EMPIRE?

Commentary | The Epoch Times | June 10, 2019 | Updated June 10, 2019 Russia and China formed an international power bloc in 2001 that puts the old Soviet-led military alliance—the Warsaw Pact—to shame. It’s called the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Most Westerners have never heard of it, yet it’s rapidly becoming one of the most powerful forces on the planet. In fact, most Western leaders operate under the delusional belief that Russia and China are antagonists and can at times be Read More...

DOWN WITH THE WELFARE STATE! ONWARD TO THE WELFARE SOCIETY!

By Trevor Loudon   |  The Epoch Times  |   February 8, 2019 Commentary The welfare state is a pernicious and destructive system that saps the moral fiber of a nation and leads inevitably, if unchecked, to tyranny.

GOVERNMENT WELFARE: A CANCER KNOWN AS COMMUNISM

By Trevor Loudon |  via The Epoch Times    |  February 8, 2019 Updated: February 12, 2019 Commentary Government welfare is communism. Free money from the state, whether in terms of benefits, hand-outs, or non-universal tax-beaks is a trap that will draw people into socialism and beyond. It’s a lot like cancer. Stage one of societal cancer is “welfarism.” Citizens get a few benefits for the elderly, the very young, those who can’t look after themselves, maybe some student loans. The economy remains pretty healthy. Read More...
