‘Exactly Like History Repeating Itself’: North Korean Defector Yeonmi Park On ‘Candace’ Warns Americans

International | November 11, 2021

North Korean defector Yeonmi Park joined The Daily Wire’s Candace Owens for Tuesday night’s episode of “Candace,” where Park warned Americans about creeping authoritarianism in the United States and detailed some of the horrors she endured in North Korea.

North Koreans were promised socialism and “free” stuff, like health care, Park said, which led to devastating oppression. And it can happen here, the 28-year-old warned.

“I think this is exactly like history repeating itself, right now,” Park said. “This is what shocked me, for me as a North Korean, when they said there’s inequality in America, I was like, hallelujah, that means you can rise above somebody else, because there’s no inequality in North Korea, everybody is dirty poor.”

“Poverty” is the worst that can happen, not “inequality,” Park asserted… (Excerpts from the Daily Wire)

China upholding Iranian regime with oil purchases

District of Columbia, International | November 5, 2021

Chinese purchases of Iranian oil have steadily increased since President Biden arrived in office, with Beijing‘s blatant flouting of U.S. sanctions on the Islamic republic providing an economic lifeline to hard-liners in Tehran. The White House has come under increasing criticism for tolerating Beijing‘s purchases, which analysts say amount to indirect Chinese support for Iran‘s nuclear weapons program, as well as Tehran‘s militant posturing and rejections of U.S. and European attempts to restore the 2015 Obama-era nuclear deal. Talks on reviving the nuclear deal have stalled but will resume Nov. 29 in Vienna, European Union officials announced this week. It is unclear whether Washington and Tehran can move closer to resuscitating the agreement. Covert Chinese support for Iran‘s economy could make hard-line Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi even less motivated to negotiate… (Excerpts from the Washington Times)

Chinese military seeks to dominate from space, deploys war-fighting tools into orbit 

International | October 14, 2021

China’s People’s Liberation Army is building and deploying an array of space warfare tools, including anti-satellite missiles and cyberweapons, which will be used to dominate Earth by controlling space, according to an Air Force report. The report by the China Aerospace Studies Institute, part of the Air University, also blames China for spreading a huge amount of space debris, mainly from a 2007 anti-satellite missile test. The ASAT test destroyed a weather satellite and left more than 3,400 pieces of floating space junk that will threaten satellites and manned spacecraft for years.
“China’s military has designated outer space as a warfighting domain — described as a ‘new commanding height of war’ — that China must fight for and seize if it is to win future wars,” the report stated. “People’s Liberation Army (PLA) officers and analysts assert that space is the ultimate high ground, and that whoever controls space controls the Earth.” … (Excerpts from the Washington Times)

Russia’s election apathy bodes ill for the country’s future 

International | September 21, 2021

In a system in which the state is the main player, arbiter, and employer, elections are a ritual of anticipatory obedience. But by carefully cultivating a submissive population, the Kremlin has created a citizenry that prefers to work for someone else, preferably the state, than to run their own businesses, and one which is suspicious of any politician, including opposition activists. Social manipulation of this order will eventually provoke a crisis of human capital, among other problems. An apathetic populace will not, for example, bring about much-needed growth in labour productivity. Ordinary Russians simply do not believe that they can make a difference or effect change. Instead they look for the future in nostalgic visions of the past perpetuated by state propaganda. In a recent poll, half of those asked said they would like to return to the Soviet political system, while 62 per cent would like to have a Soviet-style planned economy. Another poll found that the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s popularity among young Russians was on the rise. Sustained by the empire’s former glory, Putin’s Russia is walking backwards…. (Excerpts from the Financial Times)

Rebekah Koffler: USSR 2.0 — my adopted US homeland is giving me flashbacks to the Russia I fled

International | September 1, 2021

Under socialism, everything was provided by the government free or nearly free. But the cruel joke was on the people: nothing was available.
We stood in line for hours to get basic staples. You got in line before you even knew what it was for because there was an indefinite shortage of everything. You waited 10 to 15 years to get a telephone installed in a government-owned apartment or buy a car. We had no necessities, like sanitary products or toilet paper.
Socialism simply does not produce enough goods and services: Who would work harder for the same paltry, barely subsistence-level wage as everyone else? We had a saying, “The government pretends to pay us, and we pretend to work.”… (Excerpts from Fox News)

Biden’s meeting with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy revives troubles of corruption, Crimea, Russia

International | August 30, 2021

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to the White House on Monday will complete a circle of politics and intrigue spanning three U.S. administrations. President Biden has put Ukrainian corruption near the top of the agenda when he sits down in the Oval Office with Mr. Zelenskyy. It’s the same issue that has imbued both Washington’s and Mr. Biden’s relationship with the Eastern European country for nearly a decade. Documents found on Hunter Biden’s laptop late last year raised more questions about how deeply the Biden family was entrenched in Ukraine’s murky business world. Mr. Biden said in 2019 that he never spoke with his son about overseas business dealings. But documents on Hunter’s laptop show that he introduced his father to a visiting Burisma executive in 2015… (Excerpts from Washington Times)
