We noted US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s speech at the University of Texas on US policy in Latin America. The main takeaway is that the Monroe Doctrine continues to hold sway in Washington, even though it will turn 200 years old fairly soon, in 2023. The world has changed significantly over the years, but the America-for-Americans principle appears to be alive and well.

John Bachtell, national chairman of the Communist Party USA, will reply to Trump’s State of the Union on Facebook Live, Tuesday January 30th. The program will begin immediately following Trump’s speech.

“Our address will be a working-class and peoples response to Trump” said Bachtell. “From the threat of nuclear war to the denial of climate change, Trump’s policies are literally threatening our lives.”

Communists have strong opinions as everybody knows. I often joke if you ask a group of communists to agree where to go for dinner, you’ll get different recommendations from each one, passionately argue, never agree and end up starving.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise over 500 members responded to the first ever Communist Party USA membership survey over the fall of 2017 and many have strong opinions about the organization.

Recently, U.S. President Donald Trump denounced all the nations of Africa, plus Haiti, El Salvador and by implication other countries, as “shitholes”  whose people should not be allowed to immigrate to the United States.

To us in the Communist Party USA, the only mild surprise is the bluntness and vulgarity with which Trump expressed himself.

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) which represents more than 92 million workers in every corner of the world, expresses its unequivocal condemnation of the U.S. President D. Trump declarations of hatred who, during a discussion with lawmakers at the White House, complained about immigrants coming to the United States from “shithole countries”. At the same time, he attacked in a vulgar manner immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and African countries.

A little over a year ago, the Women’s March brought literally millions into the streets to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration and everything it represented. It was a hugely important moment in the resistance highlighting the leading role of women, a role that has only grown.

This year’s march is just a few week’s away and is focused on the midterm elections. The national march is January 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Local marches will take place the day before,  January 20.

On Wednesday December 6, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that his government recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and that therefore the U.S. embassy, now located in Tel Aviv, will be moving there.  Trump, with typical bombast, announced that the construction of a new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem would be “a magnificent monument to peace”.

Most of the rest of the world sees the move, rather, as being a harbinger of more conflict and war.

United States of AmericaIt is time to remove this dangerous man from office.‬

I have just signed the "Need To Impeach" petition initiated by Tom Steyer of California. Over two million other Americans have also signed it. And that number keeps growing every hour. We -- all of us -- must not wait a minute longer to act.‬

comunistaThroughout November, celebrations around the world will mark the centenary of the outstanding political event of the 20th century: the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917. By overthrowing the Russian capitalists, landowners and aristocrats, the workers, peasants and soldiers of the Tsarist empire opened the door to a new society in which humanity’s dreams of peace, equality and democracy began to become reality. The storming of the Winter Palace, signaled by the guns of the Aurora cruiser, began the historical epoch of the transition towards a socialist society, based on cooperation and social justice, not the exploitation and oppression inherent in the profit-driven capitalist system.
