by Lamiat Sabin

JEREMY CORBYN drove a stake into the heart of the “zombie” Tory government today, declaring that Prime Minister Theresa May’s “Frankenstein deal” was now “officially dead.”

He said the PM should do “the right thing” and resign after losing both “confidence and supply” in Parliament and let the people of Britain decide on the way ahead with a general election.Read More »

The EU and it’s cronies are undemocratic to the core

A Morning Star Editorial | January 17, 2019

WHEN Donald Tusk, the former Polish prime minister, was annointed for a second term as president of the EU Council the Polish foreign minister said: “We know now that it [the EU] is a union under Berlin’s diktat.”

This provides us with a useful insight into the divisions, fissures and contradictions that are mostly hidden behind the shiny facade of harmony that so beguiles liberal (and some left-wing) opinion.Read More »

The Homelessness Crisis Deepens Across North America


The Bullet | December 11, 2018

As an organizer with the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) in Toronto, I am only too aware of how much worse the homeless crisis has become in this city over the last three years. As a result of community pressure, City Hall issues a daily shelter census. In a whole series of ways, the official process understates the problem but the picture that emerges is, nonetheless, quite dreadful. In the largest and wealthiest city in Canada, the homeless shelters are bursting at the seams.

by Max Blumenthal and Mark Ames

The (Orwellian-named) Integrity Initiative has mobilized an international disinformation campaign across Europe. Now, with government and right-wing foundation money, this massive “political smear unit” is infiltrating the US, report Max Blumenthal and Mark Ames.

Abombshell domestic spy scandal has been unfolding in Britain, after hacked internal communications exposed a covert U.K. state military-intelligence psychological warfare operation targeting its own citizens and political figures in allied NATO countries under the cover of fighting “Russian disinformation.”

The leaked documents revealed a secret network of spies, prominent journalists and think-tanks colluding under the umbrella of a group called “Integrity Initiative” to shape domestic opinion—and to smear political opponents of the right-wing Tory government, including the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbin.Read More »

The American media revives the methods of McCarthyism

by Patrick Martin

The Deep State and its media shills keep gunning for Trump, but, conceivably, they represent even a worse threat to humanity than the current president.

n the wake of the one-two punch of articles in the New York Times and Washington Post suggesting that President Trump is an agent of the Russian government—or to be precise, that the FBI suspected that he was a Russian agent and opened a counterintelligence investigation (as the Times reports), and that Trump is concealing his private dealings with Putin as president (as the Postclaims)—the American media has gone into a McCarthyite hysteria.Read More »

One, Two, Many Rosa Luxemburgs

by Ines Schwerdtner

The Wire | January 17, 2019

Hardly any figure in the history of socialism represents such an impressive combination of sharp-minded theoretician and rhetorically explosive politician as did Rosa Luxemburg. Her almost daily newspaper articles, her speeches at party and trade union meetings, her letters and theoretical writings all show us as much.
