US media celebrates Democratic Party warmongering These commentaries, published within hours of the close of the Democratic convention, demonstrate the real constituency of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party. Far from representing the interests of working people, as Clinton claimed in her convention speech, the former secretary of state seeks to be the consensus choice of the military-intelligence apparatus, and tailored her campaign explicitly to its dictates.

Republican Party officially nominates Donald Trump The younger Trump declared that what will "Make America Great Again" will be the mere fact of his father's election and entry into the White House. In other words, it is not that Trump will improve the conditions of life for the American people, but that the American people will make themselves great by electing Trump.

The predictable and pathetic end of Sanders' "political revolution" In his tribute to Clinton, Sanders never referred to her four-year tenure as secretary of state, where she was consistently the most hawkish member of the Obama cabinet, instigating the US-NATO war with Libya and advocating even greater US intervention in the Syrian civil war.

Clinton seizes on Brexit vote to tout her credentials as defender of Washington's global interests The Clinton campaign offers nothing to the working class, white, black or Hispanic, because the Democratic Party long ago abandoned any policy of social reform to create jobs and improve the living standards and social conditions of working people, becoming instead a more and more open and direct instrument of Wall Street.

Race, gender and the US presidential campaign Working people instinctively, and for good reason, regard both Trump and Clinton with distaste. These are the two most unpopular politicians ever to contest the presidency. It is a measure of the isolation and bankruptcy of the US financial aristocracy that such is the "choice" its political system offers to the American people.
