Donald Trump is planning on stealing the election. This statement is not a scare tactic, nor is it the opening of a discussion about American fascism. This is what Trump has told us. Worse, the Republican Party is going to protect him while he does it.

As Biden gains on Trump in state after state, the president is desperate. He is convinced that the only way he can stay in office is to discredit the election itself and take control of the counting process.

The beginning of his plan is what we are hearing in the media everyday: mail-in ballots are fraudulent by definition; the only way he can lose is if the election is rigged; ballots that are not counted on election day don’t count. This propaganda barrage is designed to set us up for...

In the middle of the last century, Marxist economist Victor Perlo described the U.S. economy as an “empire of high finance.” If he were writing today, he’d probably update his assessment to say U.S. capitalism has also become an “empire of high technology.”

The U.S. House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust essentially dances around that conclusion in a new 450-page report released Oct. 6...

This report by the Political Action Commission was presented to the National Board on October 7, 2020.

It is now 27 days until November 3. I’ve been asked to give a brief information update on the work of our Party, which can serve as the basis for sharing experiences and ideas to sharpen our work even more. Each day presents us with a new crisis, more chaos, and more challenges to the...

There is no doubt that over the last four years American democracy has changed significantly due to the actions of President Trump. While much of the Republican base was critical of Trump in 2016, very few people, even on the left, were willing to call Trump a fascist. However, since Trump took office, people are increasingly recognizing that his administration is a fascist threat. In 2017, Marc...

Let’s face it. White people in the U.S. are committed to American capitalism, its brutality, its exploitation, its violence. Not all white people, mind you. And not all supporters of capitalism and its crimes are white. But probably the majority of the tens of millions who keep coming back every four years to vote for Trump, Romney, McCain, and Bush identify as white. They think “all lives...

A Europe-wide demand that Amazon stop spying on workers is echoing within the halls of power in the EU. Today, 37 members of the European Parliament (MEPs) submitted a letter to the company’s CEO Jeff Bezos calling for urgent action, days after European labour unions urged EU authorities to investigate the company for what they consider a “breach of European labour, data and privacy...

Last year, Payday reported on how teachers in Little Rock went on their first-ever strike.  Now, Little Rock teachers are exercising the power from that strike to refuse a return to teaching in-person at unsafe facilities, citing poor ventilation and facilities not being cleaned properly.

“We all want our lives to return to normal. That isn’t going to happen unless we take...

Last night’s debate proved that our #VoteAgainstFascism slogan is exactly right. For an hour and a half Trump launched (in classic German Nazi fashion) a blitzkrieg; that is, he attempted to roll over his opponent with overwhelming verbal force. He bullied and blustered, he shouted and shamed, he lied and leered in a take-no-prisoners prime-time performance. Be forewarned: it was no mere...

The agreement will provide retroactive premium pay – in the form of lump sum payments equal to 10 percent of all hours worked between July 5, 2020 and August 22, 2020 – to recognize their ongoing efforts to ensure communities have access to the food and supplies they need as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

We are not yet living under fascism, but it is closer than it has ever been — no longer a whiff of white supremacist violence and state terrorism, but a constant reek. Trump dispatches secret police against protestors, undermines the elections, threatens schools that adopt anti-racist curricula, and calls for violence against those who criticize him. This march to fascism has one, and only one...

That traditional symbol of justice, the balanced scale held by the Roman goddess of justice Iustitia, represents for African Americans nothing close to reality in our current “justice” system.

On Wednesday a Kentucky grand jury met to decide whether the three white police officers who raided Breonna Taylor’s Louisville apartment and killed her on March 13 were responsible for her death. Their...
