Corona Should Have Boosted Bernie’s Chances

BERS42342

The US is only beginning to pay for President Trump’s second grade knowledge of science, as the stock market, which he purports to understand better than anybody, comes tumbling down as a result of the Corona Virus. Between the POTUS who doesn’t believe in climate change, and his VP, who believes we’re in the hands of God and due for punishment…

The Limb is Getting Thicker

gg78

I recently wrote that I might be going out on a limb by suggesting that ‘Something is Afoot’ with Donald Trump’s Secretary of State Pompeo, suggesting he was probably planning to back a different Republican in this year’s Presidential Election. Now it turns out that the Senate Republicans who acquitted Trump in the impeachment trial, hoping he would mend his ways, have been shaken by…

America’s Hundred Year War on Socialism

BER34232

The Democratic Party and the US media are facing a new challenge: the rise of an avowed Social Democrat to first place in the competition for Democratic candidate in this year’s presidential election. In 2016, the media were convinced that Donald Trump couldn’t be elected: they have been ‘eating crow’ ever since. This time around, the Democratic Party (supposedly…

Independence for French Workers — and the Military

In a country whose population has been famous for demonstrating at the drop of a hat, ever since Parisians assaulted the Bastille in 1789, the Yellow Vest movement launched in October 2018 has brought the population to the brink of total breakdown. While Emanuel Macron’s international image, based on his wide-ranging initiatives, grows exponentially…

Trump’s Impeachment Is About Russia — via Ukraine

After three years of revelations about President Trump’s peccadillos, large and small, it was going to be difficult for the Democrats to command the air waves twenty-four hours a day for a whole week. The public had heard it all before! In order for him to be ejected from the White House, serious crimes had to have been committed, and what better idea…

Why are Africans Desperate?

AFR342342

Decades after achieving independence, why are Africans seeking asylum EuropeThe answer is that ‘What goes around comes around’ and it’s not only about recent neglect, but centuries of abuse. Although both southern hemispheres were aggressed by northern powers, their stories could not be more different. Latin America’s Indian populations fell prey to sixteenth century…

Leaders of the World, Unite!

FRN3242

Ever since Marx and Engels got together almost two hundred years ago to try to protect the people who were building the modern world, largely with their bare hands, the slogan of the Communist Manifesto of 1848, ’Workers of the World, Unite,” has increasingly become reality. Trade unions and other worker organizations have close cross-border relationships…

BC: To the Moon!

Africa’s demand for water is set to rise by 300% by 2040. Plans to tow a giant iceberg could provide a year’s worth of water to Cape Town. Israel goes for desalination. These headlines spell out current concerns over climate change. But by 2007 according to Jim Hansen, who blew the whistle on global warming, world leaders had recognized that were not going to make it here…

Something is Afoot in the US

….and it’s bigger than Iran. Yesterday when President Trump gave his statement about Iran’s attack on a US military base in Iraq, I thought he sounded a bit winded, but told myself I was imagining things until a commentator mockingly mentioned it. This allows me to suggest that Trump was strong-armed into the assassination of a man revered…
