The Justice System Is Criminal

On January 23, 2017, I asked, “Are Americans Racists?” I pointed out examples where racist explanations prevail over empirical fact. I did not write that there is no racism in America. I said that racism is not the be-all and end-all explanation of American history and institutions. The point I made is that racist explanations are often inadequate and both work against racial harmony and blind us to more ...Read full article...

Will the United States Regain their Freedom?

Donald Trump refused to don the Presidential uniform of his predecessors, and dedicated his speech of investiture to mocking the System and announcing a change of paradigm. He has built his Security team around two themes – the eradication of Daesh and the opposition to 11 September – two characteristics which are aimed at putting an end to the process of globalisation. President Donald Trump was invested on 20 ...Read full article...

The Demise of the Left

On several occasions I have asked in my columns the rhetorical question: What became of the left? Today I answer my question. The answer is that the European and American left, which traditionally stood for the working class and peace (bread and peace) no longer exists. The cause championed by those who pretend to be the “left” of today is identity politics.  The “left” no longer champions the working ...Read full article...

Canada may abandon NAFTA Negotiations

Instead of dwelling on NAFTA, the Canadian government will negotiate bilaterally with the United States, while Mexico is now looking for alternative markets for its products. The renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), one of the promises of Donald Trump in campaign, seems to be unattractive for Mexico and Canada. As of right now, 73% of Mexico’s exports go to the US market and now, their ...Read full article...

Donald Trump calls for Investigation on Voting Fraud

Mainstream corporate media asked for it as a challenge to the recently elected president, and now, Donald Trump has accepted the challenge. US President, Donald J. Trump announced via his Twitter account that he will call for an in-depth investigation into what he calls voting fraud and that depending on the results of such investigation, he may change electoral laws to strengthen voting safety. Trump called on Wednesday for ...Read full article...

Trump to issue Temporary Muslim ban on Syrian, Iraqi and Libyan Refugees

Donald Trump announced last night, through his Twitter account, that Wednesday would be an important day on National Security matters. Sources consulted by Reuters have confirmed that an announcement will be made by the US president on a new executive order to veto the arrival of migrants and refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. All of the above countries – with the exception of Iran ...Read full article...

Is the Transpacific Partnership Dead or Dormant?

The Obama administration went all out for its approval – a hugely secretive anti-consumer, anti-freedom, anti-environment, jobs-killing corporate giveaway race to the bottom. It’s all about greater than ever corporate empowerment under its rules, overriding domestic laws for maximum profit-making. Obama lied, claiming it aims to “promote economic growth; support the creation and retention of jobs; enhance innovation, productivity and competitiveness; raise living standards; reduce poverty in the signatories’ ...Read full article...

Despite Brexit Referendum, UK Parliament can Stop it from Happening

In a historic resolution, which may complicate things to the government of Theresa May, the British Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday morning that Parliament must approve the activation of Brexit negotiations with the European Union. The decision gives the deputies the possibility to amend and obstruct the plans of the prime minister to achieve a clean Brexit, which will completely take the UK out of the single market to ...Read full article...

Are Americans Racists?

“Racist” is the favorite epithet of the left. Every white person (except leftists) is a racist by definition. As we are defined as racists based on our skin color, I am puzzled why we are called racists a second, third, and fourth time due to specific acts, such as favoring the enforcement of immigration laws. For example, President Donald Trump says he is going to enforce the immigration laws. ...Read full article...

Manipulated Anti-Trump Protests

Americans need shoving to take them to protests on the streets and to protest for or against anything or anyone. It doesn’t happen spontaneously. With few exceptions at most, various groups from activists to anarchists aren’t behind anti-Trump protests. Nor were women turning out in large numbers nationwide and abroad. Dark forces in Washington, corporate boardrooms and other centers of power manipulated Americans to turn out in large numbers, ...Read full article...

Corporate Media Quadruples Down on Deception

After suffering the largest defeat in history, mainstream corporate-controlled media have triple and quadruple down on their lies and dishonesty. It is not a surprise, since lying to its readers and viewers is key to the success of their business and that of their backers, the corporations that day in and day out finance their operations. There are billions of dollars to be made for both the corporate-controlled media ...Read full article...

Where Is The Left-Wing When A Country Needs One?

I was about to write a detailed and favorable review of Greg Palast’s book, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits when a friend sent me a request to “share” Palast’s Facebook LIVE broadcast of Palast’s documentary exposing “exactly how Trump and his cronies attacked the voting rights of a million minority voters to steal the White House.” Let’s see, Trump won the presidency by winning 84% of geographical America, losing only the black, ...Read full article...

Las Confesiones del criminal John Kerry

La guerra contra Siria es la primera que se prolonga por más de 6 años en plena era numérica. Numerosos documentos que deberían haberse mantenido en secreto ya han sido publicados. Aunque han aparecido en diferentes países, de manera tal que la opinión publica no tiene conciencia de ello, esos documentos ya permiten en este momento reconstruir la secuencia de los acontecimientos. La publicación de una grabación de declaraciones que John Kerry hizo ...Read full article...

“Color Revolution” against Donald Trump

What will happen on Inauguration Day? Anti Donald Trump protest movements are envisaged alongside a campaign to disrupt.  While there  are “genuine protests” –e.g. those led by the Answer Coalition and Workers World–, the main thrust is coming from an “engineered” campaign supported and financed by the Neocons, which is largely intent upon disrupting the inauguration and destabilizing the Trump presidency.  Several progressive organizations have nonetheless joined the bandwagon of the #Disruptj20 campaign. The protest movement ...Read full article...

Trump Opponents Ignore US Fascism Wrapped in the American Flag

Large-scale protests are planned for inauguration day, January 20. Anti-Trumpism ignores what’s most important – a debauched system revolutionary change alone can fix, each wing of America’s one party state as corrupted as the other. Ordinary people have no say whatever. Voting is a waste of time. RefuseFascism.org headlined “IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY WE REFUSE TO ACCEPT A FASCIST AMERICA.” It’s deep-rooted, not something arriving under Trump. Fascist ...Read full article...
