“Bernie Sanders has formally launched his 2020 run for the US presidency, vowing to mount “an unprecedented and historic grassroots campaign that will begin with at least one million people from across the country.”
In the first 24 hours, he had already raised $5.9 million in donations and has more individual donors than all other current presidential candidates combined.
Certainly, Bernie’s new campaign has a far higher starting point than when the Vermont Senator first called for a “political revolution against the billionaire class” in the spring of 2015 and was overwhelmingly ignored by the corporate media.
Sanders’ video announcement began with the declaration: “Real change never takes place from the top on down, but always from the bottom on up.”
I fully agree. And that is why Socialist Alternative (the Socialist Party’s US co-thinkers) and I will be working with others to launch grassroots campaigns in communities, unions, schools, and workplaces across the US to build a mass working-class fightback around Sanders’ campaign.
There is a great deal at stake in this election. Trump urgently needs to be driven out, and socialists and the left must take full advantage of the potential to organise alongside the millions already moving into struggle and who now will be mobilised around Bernie.
But we should also heed the lessons from 2016, when the Democratic primary was rigged against Bernie: with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) actively organising against him, manoeuvres in a series of state caucuses and primaries, the threat of the undemocratic ‘superdelegate’ system, and with the corporate media and “progressive” Democratic figures leading waves of blistering attacks.
Working-class people need our own party, independent of corporate money and power – that fights alongside our movements rather than against them.
I think Bernie should run as an independent socialist, as I have, and use his campaign to launch a new mass party for working people, instead of running inside a corporate party whose leadership is determined to stop him at all costs.
Bernie has unfortunately made his decision and is running in the Democratic primary. But it is not acceptable that our political movement becomes imprisoned in this process.”
“Let’s use Bernie’s 2020 campaign to launch a mass, working-class fightback”

“How Putin and Netflix assassinated Trotsky
Every ruling class lives in fear of revolution. Even the memories of revolutions long passed fill them with a deep sense of foreboding. Reactionary French bourgeois historians curse the memory of Robespierre and Marat nearly two-and-a-half centuries after the storming of the Bastille. And Thomas Carlisle, the celebrated Scottish historian, said that before he could write about the great 17th century revolutionary, Oliver Cromwell, he first had to drag his body out from under a heap of dead dogs. When the English monarch Charles II returned from his French exile, he ordered the dead body of Oliver Cromwell to be dug up and hanged. Now the Russian oligarchs and their literary hacks are doing the same.
The fear of revolution is even greater for a relatively recent class of upstarts, like the one that has grown obscenely rich by stripping the dead body of the Russian Revolution. The depth of their fear is in direct proportion to the intensity of their hatred for the October Revolution and its leaders. That fear and hatred, and nothing else, is behind the vicious and spiteful portrayal of Leon Trotsky in this series.
The October Revolution brought together all that was progressive, honest and clean in Russian society. It put an end to a rotten, corrupt and decaying regime, and opened the way to a new and better world. The old regime was personified by Rasputin, the drunken, depraved monk who ruled over the Tsar and his family. Tsar Nicholas, who has now been made a saint by the Russian Orthodox Church, was known to his contemporaries as Nicholas the Bloody, the champion of the fascist Black Hundreds who specialised in the murder and torture of Jews.
There is a famous revolutionary poster entitled “Comrade Lenin sweeps the world clean of filth”. It depicts the leader of the Russian Revolution armed with a big broom, sweeping away priests, bankers and monarchs. This is a faithful and accurate description of what the Russian Revolution achieved over a hundred years ago. The October Revolution brought to the people of Russia progress, industrialisation, education, science, culture and hope for a better future. But with the restoration of capitalism, everything has been thrown into reverse.
…An historical regression
In his brilliant book The Revolution Betrayed, written in 1936, the great Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky predicted with astonishing prescience what the restoration of capitalism would mean for the Soviet Union:
“A collapse of the Soviet regime would lead inevitably to the collapse of the planned economy, and thus the abolition of state property… The fall of the present bureaucratic dictatorship, if it were not replaced by a new socialist power, would thus mean a return to capitalist relations with a catastrophic decline of industry and culture.” (Leon Trotsky, The Revolution Betrayed, pp. 250-1)
After the fall of the Soviet Union, the people of Russia were introduced to all the joys of capitalism: merciless exploitation, theft and swindling on a vast scale, rampant crime, the mafia, drug addiction, religion, mysticism and superstition. This was a return to the bad old days in which the rotten regime of Rasputin was reproduced in an even more vicious form.
Overnight, the entire wealth produced by the exertions of the Soviet working class over decades was plundered by a handful of greedy and parasitic oligarchs. Instead of democracy, the people of Russia found themselves in the iron grip of a voracious kleptocracy. At the apex of this vast pyramid of corruption there stands the new Tsar, one Vladimir Putin, who in his person unites all the malignant and repulsive features of capitalist counter-revolution.
Vladimir Putin was formerly an agent of the KGB, the hated secret police of the old Stalinist regime. Before the fall of the Soviet Union he faithfully served the interests of the Stalinist bureaucracy, singing the praises of what used to be called Soviet “Socialism”. On 7 November, he would join the celebrations of the October Revolution – a revolution that was betrayed by the bureaucratic Stalinist cast whose interests he loyally served.
Nowadays, however, Mr Putin, like all of his cronies, is singing a different tune. He pours dirt over the memory of the October Revolution and its leaders, Lenin and Trotsky. This is no accident. From his humble origins, Putin has prospered by participating in the looting of the Soviet state. He now defends the interests of that bloated army of thieves, crooks and swindlers that make up the Russian oligarchy.
Like a traditional mafia godfather, Putin protects his clients, against the anger of the dispossessed masses. He defends their right to hold on to the billions of dollars of property which they have stolen from the people under the guides of “privatisation”. In return for his services, he has been rewarded with a huge amount of loot, which makes him one of the richest men on the planet Earth. The servant has become the master. While protecting the interests of the oligarchs he places his well-polished boot on their necks, disposing of those who do not serve his interests by the simple expedient of arrest and imprisonment.
Putin has assumed full power over the state. He regards himself as the personi-fication of Russia. He is anointed by the Holy Orthodox Church, whose bishops are his faithful lapdogs, playing the role of spiritual police alongside the uniformed ones who keep the masses under control with guns and truncheons. In short, he is the new Tsar.
But despite all the external appearance of absolute power, the new Tsar does not sleep easy at night. In common with the oligarchs that he represents, he is uneasy about his new-found wealth and power. These usurpers and parvenus feel that their hold on their wealth is insecure. The Russian people have long memories, and a ghost is haunting the Kremlin – the ghost of 1917.
Ever since the fall of the Soviet Union there has been an authentic tsunami of books, articles, and television documentaries which vie with each other to see who can produce the most blatant lies, the more stupid calumnies and the most grotesque insults directed against the October Revolution and the Bolsheviks. A large number of writers and historians who not so long ago were card-carrying members of the so-called Communist Party of the Soviet Union have now become the most fervent defenders of the capitalist market economy. The same people who spent all their lives writing the most sycophantic praises of the Party and its cheery haptic leaders are now writing numerous books condemning the Russian Revolution, socialism and all its works.
It is hard to know what is worse, more cynical and hypocritical: what they wrote then or what they are writing now. But what is transparently obvious is that many so-called intellectuals and respectable academics possess highly flexible consciences and highly disposable principles. All too many of these people regard their own personal well-being, careers and privileges as being far more important than any political beliefs that they may, or may not, have professed. They too are firmly convinced that money does not smell.
One might have imagined that this torrent of filth could not get any worse. But
one would be wrong. The new series, Trotsky, originally produced for Russian television, and which purports to describe the life of Lev Davidovich Trotsky, marks a new low point in this fetid swamp of lies and distortions.”
Lenin became an ‘anarchist’ because he was exiled from Russia, between the first Russia-Revolution of 1905 and the two revolutions of 1918. Did that cause Stalin to become a communist, from a socialist, or did, what we’ve seen from his masse-Murdering psychopathic bloodlust to prove himself the worse masse` murderer of all times? Stalin had murdered by orders from his plutocratic controls in the Kremlin, Lenin and then lotsa other revolutionaries, all of whom were not anarchists. The fascist elements to betray the US-constitutional and in other countries to betray the Universal Declaration of Human Rights have wronged—but not as bad-bad-bad-bad-bad as ole a-Hole Stalin.

“David North defends Trotsky’s legacy against the campaign of historical falsification begun by Stalin and continuing to this day. While Stalin assassinated Trotsky in 1940, he was unable to silence the Fourth International, founded to embody the revolutionary heritage of 1917.
This work contains a devastating refutation of biographies of Trotsky published in recent years by three British historians: Ian Thatcher, Geoffrey Swain and Robert Service. The significantly expanded edition contains a new foreword, four new chapters and two appendices.”
“Leon Trotsky, leader of the 1917 Russian Revolution and of the struggle against Stalin, was the last great representative of classical Marxism. No political event in the 20th Century can be understood without reference to his extensive writings.

The cops of America are not “americanism”. They do not ticket glarinoids’ rudeness excesses in daylight—since approximately 1998, when chem-tRails started to be heir apparent to blue-sky. Just as Vladimir Putin is a Stalinist, he has a roger-Dodger excuse for making himself as plutocratic as any-ole-technocrat could, can, does. He would not quite fit into american “police-Uniforms” unless he had been a sergeant in the Ferguson MO police-Dept. The Stalinism in u.s.a. is that warped paradox that american-Oligarchs sought to maintain as UN-principled social-Calamity: no definitions and right-wing rhetoric which bolsters american-Plutocracy into the technocrats being more powerful than american bureaucrats. “R”

The term came to include Arabs, Akkadians, Canaanites, Hebrews, some Ethiopians, and Aramaean tribes.

“When Michael Brown was shot to death by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, it awakened a movement that began with the previous killing of another black teenager, Trayvon Martin, who was shot in 2012 by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
Brown’s death was not the first of its kind since Martin’s; just a month prior, Eric Garner died after being placed in a chokehold by NYPD officers. Both deaths sparked protests across the country — protests that were renewed when grand juries declined to charge the officers involved in either case.
The national outcry has cast light on similar cases from the past year, some leading to charges against the police officers involved, others not.
Here’s a breakdown of when the killings happened and their outcomes.”

Where “nucleaRism” hit a snag was by invention for use? The development of US-military-Hegemony was to continue the “extermination-Policy” personnel hypocentric on discipline is already there in place, a catharsis that should have been replaced by the term “modernized for peace”. There has been no p-e-a-c-e since before 1950. In 1956 is was going to turn ten, and the allowances for non-Use of NSDU-238 had not been announced, by the penataGooons nor found in newspapers from san fRan, the san fRan Examiner, the Call Bulletin, and the san fRan Chronicle. Why, I had to ask myself would the use of h-bOmBs be discussed for “mutually assured destruction” and never ur-238 in whatever form that secretized amalgam would be? The “bombs for peace measure” by Eisenhower’s admins, would not reduce the bombs stockpiles, nor would the put-down against Stalinism, after his death ever occur.
I kept waiting to see the best anecdote for us “boomers” a whole generation being proselytized for propaganda-Sake, w.o. the shot of whisky that the officers in Wash d-c were parlancing instead of showing us NSDU-238 and then using that as a “tReaty for reduction of both weapons before ever being used. This was, after all peacetime was that not truth? Asking my father, he said to me “we ought to know” came back as no surprise, but nothing much else. He’d been in the Navy, a medical doctor in military uniform. My uncle was asked, as he too had been in the military. Were both adults being asinine for not having a peacetime affectation on “nucleaRism” at least a partial answer to step forward? “You’ll just have to find that answer for yourself” the ole man. My uncle never did answer, but affirmed that was a “defense answer” and made for irresoluteness. He was correct, and my father had oNLY the officers he was no longer in-touch-w. My old man finally acquiesced. You’re right Addison, “Stalin’s death was a good tRump iota” he said. My uncle was in intelligence, but the ole man answered like ‘intel-Gence’ makes sense. “R”
“From a standpoint of mechanical wounding effects (WIA) and of course, killing (KIA), it makes little difference if the friendly fire rounds are depleted uranium/titanium (DU/Ti) alloy or tungsten heavy alloy (WHA) … unless the WIA are retaining radioactive shrapnel. Can we assume the rounds in question are “inert” (non-explosive) heavy metal kinetic energy penetrators? Not necessarily. There may be tracer and or incendiary chemicals in the rounds as well.
More important than mechanical wounding (WIA) is inhalation of DU/Ti aerosols during the combat event. This would effect anyone surviving the battle scene.
A-10 30-mm rounds are devastating anti-personnel ordnance. It is rare to survive a direct hit on the body. The rounds are fired in bursts and travel over a kilometer per second so there is a high likelihood of receiving more than one hit. The metallurgical components of the rounds are not relevant to the kinetic or terminal ballistic effect on the human body. The metallurgy is important to the effects on hard targets.
Fragmentation, shearing, errosion, target cratering and shrapnel behavior are different between DU/Ti and WHA rounds. WHA rounds may not penetrate armor that DU will penetrate with ease. Light armored vehicles hit by DU rounds will almost always show an exit hole. At the distance fired by a close-in A-10, and the US AAV’s targeted, both types of rounds would penetrate. Post impact behavior of the rounds inside the AAV’s (fragmentation, ignition of internal components such as fuel, clothing and magazine rounds, etc) depend on a number of factors which are not predictable. WHA is not auto igniting nor pyrophoric without chemical or metal powder additives (sic: italics mine).
Any of the surviving personnel (wounded or not) may be experiencing acute and developmental uranium internal contamination effects as a result of inhaling aerosolized DU/Ti alloyed penetrators ballistic by-products. I have personally collected radioactive penetrator residues from diabled Iraqi tanks and soil in the Nasiriyah friendly-fire battlefield. Samples collected from civilians living adjacent to the firefight show they are excreting DU in their urine. US A-10 friendly fire survivors therefore need to undergo urine uranium isotope analysis to know if they have been contaminated. Creatinine and total uranium bioassays cannot answer the question of contamination. The analysis must be done by mass spectrometry in a laboratory capable of measuring low levels of uranium and transuranium isotopes, including 236U and 239/240Pu. The laboratory results must be reviewed by an independent scientist knowledgeable in the analyses of such data.”
Whenever an agency is to use such policy or formulation from policy research, that research has to be affable to all parties or not used. That also is defense-Structure in government and in industry. In re-reading the above encapsulation, one unit, one company would have to have at least on “medical Doctor for analysis of use and utility in handling” as well as a whole company 3 or 4 medical-pRactitioners, to state the least. The a-Holes who wanted not to know about levels of contaminations, about the minutiae size capable of giving particlized separations of radio-isotopes and what “congealing mechanism” later discovered from civilian-Personnel in-the-fields near Basara, such as Japanese doctors and Dr. Siegfried Gunther of Germany, in 1995. Big jump from 1956 to 1995, 30-years w.o. response to what is normal other than allowing ‘we’re hype, tRipe matters less, attitude of IN-sufficiencies. Nothing is done by use and utility, and the excuse that NSDU-238 is a good armament begs all other concerns both connected and disconnected, as well as “dissected” my father did say, in the 1977 fRenetic war-talk ergonomics fore-instances “ozone-Exists” helped me abjure he had an answer, no matter!

“Friendly fire” is like “ethnic cleansing” and “depleted uranium” come to that. It is dressing up murder so that it might appear respectable – the art of lying; bastardization of language. These are terms of befuddlement, “cons” by other names.
Murder is wrong whether by individual, home, street, country or race. Use of uranium weapons has been defined by a war crimes tribunal as omnicidal (ICTA (Afghanistan), Tokyo, March 2004). Omnicide may not happen in a flash, but over a generation. Generations of bees, birds, trees, flowering fruit and helper creatures may be shorter than human.
It is long overdue for heads to come out of the sand. Omnicidal warfare could not be more serious.

“Product development of the Leclerc began in 1985, and it was first brought into service in 1992. The French Army currently has around 400 Leclercs in service, organised into regiments of 40 vehicles each.
The main armament of the Leclerc is a 120mm smoothbore gun, known either as the CN 120-G or the F1. It has a range of bespoke ammunition, and can also fire ammunition conforming to NATO standard Stanag 4385, such as that designed for the US M1A2 Abrams or the German Leopard 2 tanks.
The family of ammunition for the Leclerc include a High Explosive, Anti Tank, Multi-Purpose round and a High Explosive round, as well as Armour Piercing, Fin Stabilised, Discarding Sabot rounds with both tungsten and uranium penetrators. The uranium round is called the OFL 120 F2. The reasons for fielding both a tungsten and uranium armour piercing round are not clear – the choice of ammunition may depend on the armour of the target, or there may be rules about the circumstances where uranium can be used.
There have been 3 versions of the basic Leclerc (known as Blocks I, II, and II+ respectively), but all feature the same gun. A further upgrade is reportedly being considered for 2015 which would add extra defences against incoming fire.
The Leclerc has also been adopted by the United Arab Emirates, reportedly with all available ammunition types. The number of Leclercs UAE have in service is also around 400.
The Leclerc is manufactured by Nexter. The turret was manufactured at Tarbes, and the Hull at Roanne, where assembly also takes place. The last unit was produced in 2007, and the production line was closed, although Nexter still retains the capability to build more if there is a need.”
