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, domestically, […]
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 […]
Why are Africans Desperate?
Decades after achieving independence, why are Africans seeking asylum Europe. The 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!
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 […]
BC: To the Moon!
BC stands for NEO’s Banned Classic. This article was originally published by our journal on 13.07.19 For some reason, this article is missing from Google search results. Since this article remains pretty relevant to those geopolitical events that are taking place on the geopolitical stage today, we deem it possible to present it to our readers once again. […]
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 […]
The Crucial Fact Regarding Iran
As the world waits to see whether World War III is inevitable, one major fact continues to be missing from up-to-the-minute news reports: Iran (and North Korea) are the last remaining avatars of the ‘Communist threat’ that has kept the world on edge for a hundred years. Although never mentioned, while they have adopted liberal […]
The United States of Investigations
Given that the second branch of the US government is the ‘legislative’ branch, it is no surprise that qualifications for joining that body give pride of place to a degree in law. And yet, it is unlikely that ‘the framers’ — as those who wrote the Constitution are referred to — ever imagined the lengths to […]
The US Media Wakes Up — Too Late
Now that the impeachment trial of Donald Trump scheduled for early next year is expected to result in acquittal, the most ‘progressive’ media (MSNBC) fears that the man who thrusts his chin out like Mussolini could not only be re-elected, but may be anticipating an illegal third term. Trump has often warned that his base […]
Naval Gazing in Washington as the World Implodes
Of all the recent ironies, the greatest is the contrast between a Congress mesmerized by the impeachment process against President Donald J Trump and the state of the world which the US — as indispensable nation — still claims it must lead. A media that knows ‘which side its toast is buttered on’ analyses an […]
Trump Drops Bomb, Media Ignores
As his impeachment moved forward, in a morning press conference in London this week, Donald Trump mentioned casually that he and Vladimir Putin are discussing the elimination of nuclear weapons. Although this should put a major crimp in the foreign policy establishment’s all-pervading Russophobia, the US media (including Fox News) went deaf at that moment. […]
Macron Seizes the Initiative
I’ve been tracking the rise of France’s 40 year old president since he took office in 2017, referring to himself as a Jupiterian figure. From the start, it was difficult to condemn his self-aggrandizement because of his intelligence and his ability to command attention,and now it’s clear that he is implementing his ambition of becoming […]
