“Hereby Ordered”: On Trump, Capital, Fascism, and China in a World on Fire – Via @NatCounterPunch

Sin título.jpg

I am hearing whispers from lefties that “the ruling class is finally done with Trump.” It’s “the China stuff” that’s doing the trick. Sure, the argument goes, the corporate and financial powers that be haven’t been all that happy with Trump’s open white nationalism, racism, narcissism, and sexism. It’s not their style. But they’ve been willing to put up with Trump’s noxious nonsense because he’s rewarded them with plutocratic tax cuts and de-regulation. The presidents’ immigrant-bashing awfulness has kept his “heartland” base loyal to a president who knows (despite all his insanity) which constituency matters most in the American oligarchy: the wealthy Few.

Official Site Havana 500 Anniversary

Eusebio Leal Spengler / April 9, 2018

In November we celebrate, not the foundation of Havana, but its final seat almost 500 years ago on the north coast next to the port that would grant it a world celebrity. However, there are few who inquire about why we do not refer to the year 1514, in which a camp that the Spanish conquerors located on the south coast had to be established; in our opinion, at a point in the Ensenada de la Broa and perhaps, with more exact perception, in the surroundings of Melena del Sur.
