Personally, I hope Trump wins, as he's doing a tremendous job of burying Yankee Power, but it seems the money men in Wall Street think Biden is a better bet. Speculators Betting Biden Will Win the Election Another reason behind Friday’s strength is the weaker U.S. Dollar. The greenback fell against a basket of currencies amid growing bets that Joe Biden would come out on top in the U.S. presidential elections and possibly offer more stimulus after he wins. Additionally, several Wall...
 
Pope Francis says the coronavirus pandemic has proven that the "magic theories" of market capitalism have failed. In a new encyclical published Sunday, he wrote that the world needs a new type of politics that promotes dialogue and solidarity and rejects war at all costs. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/pope-francis-capitalism-markets-coronavirus-pandemic-fail/
 
The Native people of Bolivia contemplate the Planter coup against their President This will be a thread for serious discussion of the brutal terrorist coup that has been perpetrated against the majority of the Bolivian people, who have democratically elected their President Evo Morales. Any right wing trolls will be removed from this thread, but if genuine right wingers have something genuine to say (unlikely though that may be) they are welcome to do so. The situation seems to be that...
 
Malcolm X is a shining inspiration to all anti-imperialists and all who seek justice. I see that BLM has launched a new campaign to get all black voters registered in the USA. A very good move as the best way to remove racist politicians and their racist policies is to vote them out. Our visionary Brother Malcolm X saw the vote as a tactic in the larger strategy for freedom. And as we approach one of the most important elections of our lifetime, we must continue to rise above. We must...
 
Anyone with any intelligence looking around them will realize that the world is in a very bad place. We have massive corruption, brainwashing, media lies, huge gaps between the rich and the poor - and millions of people suffering needless deprivation. In my view, only the study of Marx can equip the human mind with the tools required to understand the plight we are in - and to begin to pull ourselves out of that horrible plight. But, needless to say, the ruling classes do not want the...
 
Cardinal Pell is back in Rome and back on the trail of the Vatican Banksters. As he arrived at the Vatican, he had high praise for His Holiness. “The Holy Father was elected to clean up Vatican finances. He plays a long game and is to be thanked and congratulated on recent developments,” Pell wrote in a statement sent to CNA on September 25. “I hope the cleaning of the stables continues in both the Vatican and Victoria,” Pell said...
 
One of the most valuable contributions that the Black Lives Matter Movement has given us is a focus on the nature of policing. During the GFA negotiations, Adams & Co. had an ideal opportunity to challenge the whole Peeler Model of Policing. However, they didn't have the imagination, understanding or foresight to do so. They seemed to think that the only thing wrong with the RUC was that it had a Crown on its caps and not enough Taigs in its ranks. BLM have done us a great service by...
Donald has thousands of excuses for not paying his taxes. I wouldn't say Donald is very peculiar in this regard. Half of Wall Street and the City of London are employed to think up scams to help the rich dodge their taxes. But, it looks pretty bad for someone who pretends to be a patriot dodging his taxes, hiring undocumented migrant labour - and then stopping income tax from their wages - even though they are not actually allowed to work not to mind pay tax...
 
A very sad story of how a black man got more recognition as a human being from Adolf Hitler than from his own supposed President. Owens received no telegram of congratulations for his record-breaking haul of medals. On his return, there was no invitation to the White House to shake hands with the President. That honour was reserved for white Olympians. Owens even had to attend a non-presidential reception in his honour with his mother at the Waldorf Astoria using the goods lift. Was...
Mass Immigration and the Native Collective In the liberal framework that our main stream parties are slave to, if there is a shortage of skilled workers in any branch of Irish industry, this is taken as an excuse to promote mass immigration. When, in fact, it should be taken as a confirmation of the fact that the economy is the working for the Gaelic people. The correct answer to a skills shortage is not to bring in foreign guest workers, but to lift more and more of the Gaelic workers up...
 
Warning: This is a Self Moderated thread. Any off topic spam will be removed by me. This is a thread for a rational discussion of the extraordinary trial of Cardinal George Pell, and his appeal against the verdict of that trial. No off topic posts will be allowed. If you just want to tell us all how much you hate the Catholic Church and how all priests and nuns are rapists, then take it somewhere else. Here was are only interested in the legal aspects of the case. Cardinal Pell's...
 
An illuminated atlas depicts Mansa Musa, emperor of Mali from 1312 to 1337, widely known for his vast vast wealth in the form of gold deposits. When Sam Nixon, an archaeologist with the British Museum, excavated ancient coin molds in Tadmekka, Mali, in 2005, it triggered a several-year exploration of how medieval Africans purified the gold they were using for their currency. Nixon had found little droplets of highly refined gold left over in the molds—which have been dated to the 11th...
We have been told by imperialist propaganda that the Africans never built anything. In fact, they built scores of cities with remarkable architecture. Some of the most amazing of these structures were built in what is now Zimbabwe. The word "zimbabwe" itself means a great stone house. These cities carried out trade with ancient Rome, Egypt, India and even China. Beautiful Chinese teapots and other luxury goods have been discovered in the ruins of these cities, along with fabulous gold...
 
This is a racist-free, gobshite-free, discussion of Black Lives Matter. Serious discussion means that serious critique must be made, but mindlessly posting racist memes and racist Tweets will not be allowed. There are several other threads devoted to moronic behaviour like that. Also, oneliners expressing nothing but hate will also be removed. There is no doubt that US society is black society - just as much as it is white society. The Native Americans have always been outside of that...
 
Some serious members of this forum, who rightly do not wish to discuss the topic of Holocaust on a thread started by a mindless troll for the purposes of flaming, asked that a proper thread be opened to discuss the Holocaust of our people. This Holocaust was not a rapid event, like the Holocaust of the Jews, but an event that was relentlessly pursued over a period of centuries. I'm not sure exactly when the idea came to the English ruling class that it would be desirable to utterly...
According to reports, the Green Resistance is still strong in Libya, and likely to win any free and fair election - if the NATO Rats ever dare to hold one. Erdogan's rats are in their too now sniffing the oil - of course they are NATO Rats too.
Alchemy is essentially the refining of the unpure into the pure, whether that be of metals, blood or spirit.
 
When an Irish Patriot stepped forward into the ranks of Óglaigh na hÉireann, he or she was said to be "booked." This was a swearing in ceremony where the Volunteer swore to abide by the rules and ethos laid out in the IRA's code of conduct - known as the Green Book, because the original version has a green cover. This is an important historical text, and says a lot about one of the most noble and effective armies that Ireland ever produced. The Green Book was first produced in 1956 for the...
A thread to salute the Volunteers of the Provisional IRA, who conducted one of the most outstanding national resistances of all time and gave the people of Ireland an Army to be proud of. The enemy was lucky that the internet was not available in the 1970s and 80s. If it had been, they would have utterly lost control of the propaganda war. As it was, the scum in the BBC, RTÉ, etc. willingly prostituted themselves as running dogs of the English Crown Occupation Forces. This thread is self...
 
The Great General was born into a poor family in Iran the 11th of March, 1957. An auspicious day for Iran and the world. His father died young leaving his mother with debts relating to the family's tiny farm. The young lad went to work on a building site to take the burden off his dear mother. He remained in the building industry for all of the 1970s, until the Islamic Revolution of 1979. He then stepped forward into the ranks of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, where his leadership...
 
Is the Working Class able to achieve anything without the whip of bourgeois property ownership across their backs? Seems so.... Salyut 6 Space Station
Joseph Stalin wasn't Russian, and Russian wasn't his first language, but he was a Slav, and he built the greatest Slav empire in all of history. And I use the word "empire" here in a good way. It was an empire of the various tribes of one race. As if we managed to build a Celtic empire consisting of the Celtic nations. During Stalin's Slavic Empire, all the Slav nations were secure in their Slavic populations, their Slavic languages and culture. The Slavic people had noble labour to do...
The Shah of Iran was a complicated figure. He did many good things. Ironically, the CIA and MI6 had violently overthrown the democratically elected President of Iran, Mohammad Mosaddegh, in 1953 because they feared he would nationalize the oil industry. They placed the Shah on the throne as their man. However, it was the Shah who did nationalize the oil industry, and he used the money to provide universal education, electrification, the building of modern industries, and the emancipation...
This is a wonderfully inspiring document, written by a true Believer in the Mercy of God as he faced his heroic death. What a contrast to the degenerate subhumans who populate the Whitehouse and their mongrel running dogs in Europe - Bumptious Boris in particular. A vile creature with no sense of who or what he is. While Dirty Donald devoted his miserable life to spending his father's money on foreign prostitutes, the Shaheed General was never seen without his beads in his hands...
It's heartbreaking to think that this brave Patriot was sold out by Adams & Co. for the sake of the Queen's Shilling and some Crown appointments. Óglach Mairéad Farrell was the bravest of the brave. She died in a hail of enemy bullets on active service on March 6th 1988 on the Rock of Gibraltar. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam dílis.
 
The Man who Made Africa Great Again has Died this Morning When the Brit media unanimously hate a man, you can be pretty sure you are looking at a man who took wealth from their owners. And so it was with Comrade Robert Mugabe. Today, Zimbabwe has an unemployment rate of 4.5% - the lowest in Africa. This is due to the decades of long struggle that His Excellency put into making Zimbabwe great again, after centuries under British occupation and theft. Of course, in any colony, the Brits...
 
Honour. Patriotism. Courage. The achievements of Brother Leader Muammar Al Gaddafi were Godlike. He took a country that had the highest infant mortality rate in Africa in 1969, and where more than 90% of the population lived in tents, and where literacy was well less than 5%, and he quickly turned it into the most prosperous and progressive country in Africa, and indeed in the world. When Al Gaddafi suffered Martyrdom for his country on this day in 2011, 100% of Libyans lived in brick...
If God existed, he wouldn’t allow evil. That's a children's idea of God - even though many people still hold it into adulthood. The books of any religion, such as Christianity or Islam, are metaphoric rather than meant to be taken literally. The Vatican accepts evolution and the Big Bang theory. They don't contradict religion any more than accepting that the earth doesn't go round the sun. The sad fact is that science doesn't and can't explain everything. In fact, it explains very little...
 
Arabs and Africans need a Strongman to lead them. Otherwise they collapse into chaos. Seven years after Obama, Crooked Hillary, Pig Fucker Cameron and the Jew Sarkozi murdered Brother Leader Al Gaddafi and turned all over Libya over to ISIS and Al Qaeda, the Jihadists are still killing and looting in what was until 2011 the most prosperous and progressive country in Africa, and one of the very best places in the world to live. Bloodshed, Airport Chaos After Libyan Groups Break...
