Democracy is hanging on by a thread not due to marauding Trumpsters -- but because of bipartisan support for neoliberal policies.

A Democratic president with control of Congress should be seen and treated as an adversary. Biden is not a friend, nor are the CBC or phony progressives who call themselves a squad.

The corporate media have joined the incoming administration in deciding what we can and cannot see and hear. The danger of fascism won't leave Washington with Donald Trump.

Nothing in American politics has been ordinary since Donald Trump entered the scene. He announced, via Twitter of course, that he concedes nothing and declared that the election was rigged against him.

If the needs of the people aren't being addressed what is the purpose of putting Biden and Harris into office? It isn't hard to argue against Donald Trump but the full court press of Biden or bust is difficult to reconcile with reality.

On this episode of The Left Lens, co-hosts Danny Haiphong and Margaret Kimberley analyze the record of Kamala Harris and why she represents a negation of everything that the Black liberation movement and U.S. political prisoners currently fighting for freedom stand for.

The discomfort caused to elites is of no concern to anyone who wants to strike at the heart of racism. Goodbye and good riddance to Churchill, Columbus, Leopold and all of their ilk, writes Margaret Kimberley.

The revulsion caused by this latest killing caught on camera spawned protests in Minneapolis and all over the country. Black people are the angriest, knowing they are at risk of the same treatment and because most police killings rarely result in convictions.

Trump begat Ukraine-gate and got himself impeached thanks to his own stupidity. He can't be trusted to behave any differently this time around. He brought Obama-gate to public attention but if his past behavior is an indicator, he may manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
SHARE Thursday, April 9, 2020 Marginalized Populations Cannot Lock Down
There is an old saying that if America catches a cold, black people get pneumonia. The communicable disease reference is especially relevant now that the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has created a crisis in this country.

The politicians of Corbyn and Sanders ilk will always face an uphill battle. Denying this reality means that the scoundrels will stay in control in the U.S., the U.K. and the whole world.

The latest example of the liberal herd mentality comes in the form of love for the military. Liberals don't associate with this institution themselves. They wouldn't think of sending their kids to the army or the navy. But suddenly they have a love for senior officers if they voice disgust with Trump.

We always lived in a very dangerous nation. Trump makes it more difficult to be in denial. But we must fight against the crowd which averts its eyes until a racist buffoon enters the White House. There is nothing new about American terrorism. It can be found in high and low places regardless of presidential civility or lack thereof.

Every visitor moved by the history displayed in the new Montgomery memorial should fight for an end to the system which gives us a violent police state. Any black person can be killed by police or caught up in the prison gulag. That means lynch law still lives.

The legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., who was assassinated 50 years ago today, has been cynically exploited by corporate and political leaders who care more for the needs of their rich donors than black constituents, comments Margaret Kimberley.

The corporate media have said far too little about Mercer's influence, preferring to create elaborate scenarios of Russian government interference. The Mercer story is a secret hiding in plain sight. It is the stuff of spy thrillers but it is all too real. An ultra-rich right winger put Trump in the White House and now controls the country's political agenda.

Bezos may look like the villain in a James Bond movie but there is nothing funny about him. He is deadly serious and so are his intentions. In a Bezos-run world every worker will be impoverished, every level of government will subsidize corporations, and anyone who speaks out will be discredited and under surveillance.
