Impeachment Is Their Fight, Not Ours
The bipartisan regime is using impeachment to move against Trump in the days after the storming of the Capitol. But that doesn’t mean they are our allies in the fight against the Right. Socialists must prepare ourselves and the entire working class to face the next four years of an administration that has the support of the bipartisan political establishment and capital behind it.

A Tech Worker Explains Why the Industry Won’t Save Us, but Workers Can
Several major tech companies moved late last week to remove Donald Trump and some of his followers from their platforms. But we cannot trust capitalists to fight the Right --- only workers can be depended on to protect the interests of the working class.

“It is Only a Matter of Time Before a More Competent Trump Emerges”: An Interview With Warren Montag
Some people argue that the far Right is small. Should we be reassured that “only” 45 percent of Republicans, that is, 30 million people, support the riot at the Capitol? We must reject facile economism to understand the Trump phenomenon. This is more than a simple contradiction between base and superstructure.

Neither Big Tech nor the Government Will Stop the Right — the Workers’ Movement Needs to Step Up!
Any measures that the ruling class takes against the Right will inevitably be used with 10 times more force against the Left.

The Storming of the Capitol Is a Sign of Asymmetrical Polarization
As the past year has shown us, there is radicalization to the left and to the right. But this polarization is asymmetrical: Trump is becoming the political leader of an emboldened neo-fascist Far Right, while the political leadership of the "Left" is becoming more entrenched in the establishment. That makes it all the more urgent to build a working-class movement for immediate demands and for socialism.

This Is What the Decline of the U.S. Empire Looks Like
The world watched yesterday as a horde of extreme-right Trump supporters stormed the joint congressional session to certify Joe Biden’s electoral win. These events portend more instability for the U.S. imperialist project, both on the national and international stages.

Voting Doesn’t Beat the Far Right
The far-right occupation of the U.S. Capitol Building shows us that simply voting Trump out of office wasn’t enough to destroy the far-right movement. Politicians don’t create movements --- they simply give them a political expression. We can only defeat the far-right movement through organization and class struggle.

The Police Stood By as the Far Right Invaded the Capitol. The Working Class Must Stop Them
This afternoon, thousands of Trump supporters from across the country stormed the U.S. Capitol building in an effort to stop the certification of the Electoral College vote.

Don’t Be Fooled By $2,000. Trump’s Speech Was Dangerous
Some on the Left are celebrating Trump’s call for $2,000 relief payments. But we shouldn’t be fooled: his speech last night was xenophobic, America-First populism.

Congress Votes $740 Billion for Military
As millions of people face unemployment, possible eviction, and other economic hardship as a result of the pandemic and economic crisis, Congress passed another bloated defense bill despite facing opposition from Donald Trump. If there’s one thing the Democrats and Republicans can agree on, it’s that there is endless funding for the U.S. imperialist war machine, and nothing for the working class.
