Gerald Horne on God and Guns - The Fanatical Faith of the NRA



Gerald Horne talks us to school on God and Guns and continues our People's History of the United States - we repeat from Marx that History weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living in the USA.

Stephen Colbert Asks God's stance on the NRA



The Political Psychology of America as reflected in CPAC and NRA is highly unusual but as we have shown has deep roots in US political culture even prior to 1776.

The Liberal response of Stephen Colbert is insufficient to root out this culture it is also part of it if we study the historical evidence.

If USA wants to move from it death cult culture and protect its children it needs a real socialist revolution and a profound cultural revolution and a paradigm shift in thinking.

We would remind the over enthusiastic Lin Baoists in USA on the Left that the Party rules the Gun - the Gun does not rule the Party.




A Kind of Revolution - People's History of the United States



Poor whites in America enlist to fight for the rich in a kind of revolution - history weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living - watch CPAC today see the living nightmare.

No new social class came to power as a result of 1776 ? the colonial ruling class engineered the Revolution - something history was to repeat more times than we can count in other countries and in other times.

Kurdish forces have departed Aleppo city, handing the neighbourhoods under their control to the Syrian regime, in order to defend Afrin.





ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Kurdish forces have departed Aleppo city, handing the neighbourhoods under their control to the Syrian regime, in order to defend Afrin.

“As YPG and YPJ forces in Aleppo, we have acted with the awareness of our responsibility since the first day of the attacks against Afrin,” commander of the Kurdish force in Aleppo, Firat Khalil, announced in a statement published by ANF media, which has ties to the force.

“Due to the silence of all world powers on the barbaric attacks, all the YPG and YPJ forces in Aleppo went to Afrin and participated in the defense. For this reason, the neighborhoods east of Aleppo have come under the control of regime forces,” he said.

The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the all-female force (YPJ) had been in control of the mainly Kurdish Sheikh Maqsood area of Aleppo.

The statement from Khalil confirms reports earlier on Thursday that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had entered Sheikh Maqsood and raised their flag.

Pro-regime forces have also entered the Kurdish canton of Afrin to help the YPG and YPJ defend against a Turkish offensive.

A third convoy of Syrian forces arrived in Afrin on Thursday.

Civilians from eastern areas of the Kurdish self-autonomous region of Rojava in northern Syria have also travelled to Afrin to show their solidarity with the isolated canton.

A convoy traveling from the eastern canton of Jazira and the central one of Euphrates came under Turkish fire on Thursday, “injuring a number of them,” according to Abdulkarim Omar, co-chair of foreign affairs for Jazira canton.

It is believed they were bringing food and medicine to Afrin, Reuters photojournalist Rodi Said reported.
