Most readers will not, by now, require a recapitulation of the condition and origins of the so-called ‘migrant caravan’ currently stalled in Mexico. If so, one might begin here, here, and here. What we seek to do is clarify the class-nature of the crisis, the enemy, and the position of the proletarian camp. Like most […]

The imperialist media has played the principal role in the ballooning moral drama following the murder and apparent dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi, a contributing journalist for the Washington Post, by the Saudi state. The seemingly endless propaganda drive for “justice” has once again exposed contradictions within imperialist state, putting Trump’s party and regime in a […]

Seven years after formally ceasing operations, the u.$. navy’s 2nd fleet has been reactivated and ordered to the northern Atlantic as a means of confronting “bad actors” they believe hostile to imperialist interests. It is more than obvious these “actors” are in fact one actor—Russia. This is riding a high-tide of inter-imperialist tension and rivalry […]

Despite recent traction the left appeared to be gaining in the cultural sphere with its inclusion in the opposition to the “fascist” Trump administration, the opposition and its left-wing have since run into very serious political roadblocks in the form of directionless and immaterial calls to “oust” the president and his cohorts. Informal linkages between […]

Days after polls closed in Iraq, the final count has been released. The radical coalition Sairoon (translated to “On the Move” by western sources) has declared its initial victory, with Muqtada al-Sadr and the Iraqi Communist Party gaining a slight majority in the parliament. We would first like to congratulate the Iraqi Communist Party and […]

Yesterday, u.$. strongman Donald Trump thanked NK leader Kim Jong-un, “who really was excellent” to the three amerikans he ordered released from detention. Kim decided to release the amerikans, two of whom had been involved with work at the private, protestant-run Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST), and none had served out their terms […]

Yesterday, Trump signaled the possible beginning of the next great crisis when he announced that he would slap a tariff on 60bn u$d in Chinese imports.[1] Needless to say, only “buy american” liberals and MAGA semi-fascists have convinced themselves this will work out for the best, the former with roundabout figures cherry-picked for MSNBC segments, […]

The liberal so-called opposition to Trump has recently honed in on one of the articles in the new budgetary proposal for the state department in 2019 which includes, among other things, the further slashing of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its related institutions. According to the current president of the NED, Carl Gershman, […]

Michael McFaul, former amerikan ambassador to Russia under Obama, took to twitter to rail against the claim that amerikan interference in the affairs of sovereign states is at all relevant to the discussion of alleged Russian “meddling” in the 2016 presidential elections. He was specifically referring to ultra-right blowhard Sean Hannity, who had brought up […]

In what may appear to the average westerner as an uncharacteristic change in tone, the Taliban has issued an open letter directly to the amerikan people calling for immediate peace negotiations, and citing the long list of u.$. crimes in the country. The letter, which spans about 7 pages in its english translation, serves as […]

Given its worldwide ubiquity, it is easy to forget that hip hop did not always idolize the wealthy and powerful. As an expression of the dispossessed black youth, its content was explicitly political. Its origin can be traced back all the way to the 1970s, during the tragic demise of the Black Liberation Movement. But […]

Months have passed since the so-called liberation of Mosul by the u.$.-led coalition in Iraq, and the city has yet to recover. Very little construction has taken place, as most buildings remain in ruin, hardly the sight one normally associates with a city rejoicing for its freedom. The Iraqi army, with the full support of […]

Kabul is under siege. A series of deadly attacks in the heart of the capital just this month, and a history of many others in the past few months have reinforced this fact. Simply put, the expiration date of the regime has been set, and although we cannot be for certain when it will fall, […]

The Afghan occupation is unraveling. The invaders have been forced entirely into a defensive posture, always reacting to the advances of the Taliban forces, never advancing themselves. We hear sporadic news of increased aerial bombing—succeeding mostly in killing Afghan civilians—and the targeting of so-called drug labs, but nothing of real advance. The imperialists are stuck, […]

Catch flies with honey, rats with garbage. Don’t you just hate when you laud somebody for their heroism and strength of character and they turn out to be a common murderer? Well, that’s precisely what’s gone down with that heroic North Korean soldier who defected a little over a month ago. A young, “low-ranking” North […]

In the First World especially, the vision of housing in the future has increasingly tended toward the small, “minimalist” and often recycled homes that we see advertised in science and innovation magazines. So-called pod homes, shipping container houses, modular flats and even recycled water pipes have become not only a vision of life in the […]
