I caught a glimpse of integrity today. It looked nothing like me. And it was good.
Closing up shop
This is the final post on this blog. I'm leaving it active until I gather the material I want. Stay tuned for updates.
There are few things worse in higher education than watching talented and smart students walk out the door in defeat. When that happens, there often are multiple factors that come into play, but perhaps none is worse than when the student believes he/she was treated poorly while on campus. Faculty who consistently show genuine care … Continue reading Failure
CGTN: The Ukraine crisis: The West’s provocative culpability
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I wonder what the current crisis in Ukraine might look like if only Western leaders had heeded an important piece of advice. No man is perfect, but good luck finding someone who understands geopolitics better than Henry Kissinger. The man celebrated most especially in the U.S. and China for … Continue reading CGTN: The Ukraine crisis: The West’s provocative culpability
CGTN: U.S. senator swings, misses in criticism of China
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I explore why one U.S. senator needs to rethink his let's-sanction-China strategy. Returning to Rubio, we must acknowledge that in attempting to validate his bona fides as an anti-Communist, he is ignoring reality. Any sanctions the U.S. would issue against China would be met with a response by the … Continue reading CGTN: U.S. senator swings, misses in criticism of China
CGTN: Flawed narrative about China in U.S. damages potential for a shared future

Trust is essential if real progress between the two … Continue reading CGTN: Flawed narrative about China in U.S. damages potential for a shared future
Beijing Review: Two Sessions acknowledge future opportunities and challenges
In my inaugural editorial for Beijing Review, I take a look at recently concluded Two Sessions gathering in China and what it might mean for the country and the world. Meanwhile, whole-process democracy—a term that irks the West—remained a central theme at the Two Sessions. "Whole-process people's democracy integrates process-oriented democracy with results-oriented democracy, procedural … Continue reading Beijing Review: Two Sessions acknowledge future opportunities and challenges
CGTN: Lies about WMD damage U.S. credibility at U.N.
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I examine why the years 2003 and 2021 remain critical in understanding why U.S. credibility is questioned around the world. The damage done to U.S. credibility across the world because of the lies about Iraq and China ensure a dark cloud continues to hang over Washington. Put rather bluntly: … Continue reading CGTN: Lies about WMD damage U.S. credibility at U.N.
CGTN: America’s MIC to gain from Russia-Ukraine war
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I ask people to remember that America's military-industrial complex stands to benefit from the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war. In the coming days, we should expect a barrage of military "experts" from inside and outside the armed forces to receive ample space in America's newspapers and time on America's television news … Continue reading CGTN: America’s MIC to gain from Russia-Ukraine war
