This was a groundbreaking event, showing that the anti-war movement has revived on a national scale after years of relative quiescence. Yet this success was not welcomed by some leftist anti-war activists. Underlying this are deeper causes for the conflict.

What the 2022 Midterm Election Charade Offers Us Neither party in the US midterm elections are offering us any solutions to the problems we face. The elections do show that the traditional categories of left and right no longer adequately apply to the political changes taking place in the US.

21st-Century US Coups and Attempted Coups in Latin America During the 21st century, the US, working with corporate elites, traditional oligarchies, military, and corporate media, has continually attempted coups against Latin American governments that place the needs of their people over US corporate interests. US-organized coups in Latin American countries is hardly a 20th-century phenomenon.

The US Plan to Imprison Businesspeople in other Countries for "Violating" Illegal US Sanctions The US has taken its unilateral coercive measures to a new level by attempting to extradite foreign businesspeople who have been abiding by international law rather than these US sanctions. The cases of Alex Saab, a Venezuelan, Meng Wanzhou from China's Huawei tech giant, and Mun Chol Myong from North Korea are each charged with violating US sanctions even though all are non-US citizens living outside the US.

The Failure of Trump's "Coup": A Victory for the US Empire - but the Left gets on their bandwagon The best result for the US empire would be for Trump to lose the election, his "coup" to fail, and he be banned from running for political office. The US rulers achieved almost all that agenda. US leftists, declared opponents of the empire, must ask themselves why this very agenda was also their own agenda.

What We Will Miss with the End of the Trump Presidency With Trump gone, we can expect renewed threats against North Korea and increased military action in the Middle East.

Part 2: Why the US Can Keep Increasing its Debt and not Suffer Inflation The US, protecting the dollar as the world's reserve currency, is not subject to the same rules other countries are: it can spend more than it produces, maintain its consumerist lifestyle, by simply printing more dollars. It can use this extra money to gain control of goods and resources, giving them inflation and debt in exchange. These exported dollars often return home through now uncollectible loans as Treasury Bonds.

The Wasp Network Highlights our Lack of Freedom to Tell the Truth on the Cuban Five Case The Netflix film on the Cuban 5: Wasp Network makes clear the US is the aggressor, that Cuba used the Wasp Network to defend itself. It quotes Fidel Castro pointing out "how amazing it was the biggest spy in the world would accuse the most spied upon country in the world of espionage." Yet the film won't educate people on the Cuban Five case, or on the long history of US terrorism against Cuba.
