Civil rights activists are engaging an 1871 law against Ku Klux Klan terrorism to try to bring former president Donald Trump to account for the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, writes Malik Miah.
Trumpism and anti-Trumpist protests
For now, the Republican Party remains Trump’s party. A mass response is the only way to stop neo-fascist, ultra-nationalist forces, argue Malik Miah and Barry Sheppard.
Recognising that the January 6 attack on the US Capitol marks a new stage in US politics is crucial to building a movement to defend Black Lives Matter and the working class, writes Malik Miah.
Democratic Socialists of America member Isaac Silver addressed the Socialist Alliance national conference about Donald Trump inciting his base to storm Capitol Hill and more.
Donald Trump may leave office and return to the bowels of financial speculation. However, the political base that sustained and reinforced his presidency will remain a powerful political force, writes Rupen Savoulian.
Before Donald Trump, no US president had declared themselves the winner after losing, writes Malik Miah. Trump is becoming increasingly theatrical in his desperation to hold onto power. What happens next is not known.
In interviews with African Americans who did not vote, many said their lives have not, and will not likely change under Donald Trump or Joe Biden, writes Malik Miah.
The racism and lack of democracy that underpins the institutions of the United States has been exposed thanks to the Black Lives Matter movement and President Donald Trump's rush to confirm a new Supreme Court, writes Barry Sheppard.
Supporters of justice for Palestine condemned United States President Donald Trump’s “deal” on Palestine and Israel on February 7 in Sydney, reports Jim McIlroy.
Critics of Trump’s Middle East “Peace Plan” in the capitalist media claim he has given Israel everything it wants. Trump says he is just being realistic, recognising the reality on the ground.
Barry Sheppard explains that Trump is right – he has given Israel nothing it did not already have, except United States official recognition and approval of that reality.
By limiting the impeachment charges against US President Donald Trump, the Democratic establishment has left aside the major crimes Trump has committed — against humanity worldwide as well as the great majority of the US population, writes Barry Sheppard.
The Democratic impeachment inquiry began when a “whistleblower” revealed that US President Donald Trump had pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation of former vice-president Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Trump suspended military aid to Ukraine and made a White House visit by Zelensky — which the new Ukrainian president dearly wanted — conditional on him stating publically that such an investigation was underway.
