Trotsky on Stalin

October 21, 2016



by Andrew Murray

Stalinism and Trotskyism appear to be back in vogue. Their shrouds are being waved — entryism here, a purge there — to terrify bystanders to the struggle over the future of the Labour Party.

This illustrates the extent to which “dead Russians,” using the term slightly loosely, still hold the imagery and lexicon of the international left in thrall nearly a century after the October revolution.

The perfect moment, then, for the publication of a new and definitive edition of Trotsky’s biography of Stalin?

It was Trotsky’s last major literary endeavour and he was working on it when he was assassinated by an agent of Soviet security in 1940. It was a biography so unauthorised that it may be the only one in the history of the genre whose author was murdered by its subject while the book was still being prepared.

Trotsky had been paid $5,000 for…

The largest hip hop portal in Germany slander Polish musicians

October 21, 2016


The largest hip hop portal in Germany ( provocatively described Polish rappers – Basti and Toony, as “Nazi bastards ”

Their disgraceful slander took place on 15 October 2016 at the social networking site Twitter. To answer a question by one of Twitter users about the Polish musicians ‘Hiphopde’ has written from their official account – , “Sollen Kreuzweis ficken sich, die Nazi Hurenkinder.” Which translated more or less means :

“Let the Nazibastards pound themselves on the back .”

The post included photos of the song: “Europe is dying”, which perfectly shows what is currently happening in Europe.

There is nothing, however, in any text of this song, just as nothing in the rappers entire career to justify such a nasty act on the part of the German portal. Perhaps one of the administrators did not even bother to read the words of the song, and took advantage…

Battle For The Net

October 20, 2016

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites. Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon? On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet. If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: Get creative! Don’t let us tell you what to do. See you on the net September 10th!

“All hands off the Russian Prosecutie,” Moral Volcano warns the West!

October 17, 2016

Moral Volcano Blog ▄︻┻┳═一

Ignore the Americans, they are totally screwed up. But, why Canada and the EU? Their economies were already hurting before the sanctions. Now, it is going to become worse with Russia retaliating. Why did leaders of these countries went along with the US in imposing sanctions on Russia, knowing well enough that it would not achieve their aims and be counterproductive. Reason? One is Blackmail. The other is deposits in Swiss bank accounts.

Russia supplies a lot of oil and gas to Europe. The US has lots of shale gas but can’t compete with Russia on price. The only choice was to remove Russia from the market, just as they had removed Iran from the market (and indirectly helped BP and Reliance up their rates for KG gas).

Crimean prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya, dubbed "Prosecutie" in Japan is among those individuals targeted by that stupid dummy called Obama. Crimean prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya, dubbed “Prosecutie” in Japan is among those individuals targeted by that stupid dummy called…

Russia Debates Response To Shocking Hillary Clinton Link To Crimea Terror Attack – WhatDoesItMean

Conspiracy Daily Update

what does it mean

August 13, 2016 By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A stunning Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today examining the criminal file presented to them by Prosecutor General Natalia Poklonskaya regarding the Ukrainian based terror attack upon the Southern Federal District (Crimean region) this past week shows a “direct monetary link” between Hillary Clinton and the saboteurs, but as of now shows no firm consensus on if the Federation should break diplomatic ties with Ukraine as is being advocated by Prime Minister Medvedev.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Civil Rightz Era rootz of mazz incarceration

September 4, 2016

Moorbey'z Blog

Cover: From the War on Poverty to the War on Crime in HARDCOVER

Listen to Elizabeth Hinton discuss the Civil Rights Era roots of mass incarceration on WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show:

In the United States today, one in every thirty-one adults is under some form of penal control, including one in eleven African American men. How did the “land of the free” become the home of the world’s largest prison system? Challenging the belief that America’s prison problem originated with the Reagan administration’s War on Drugs, Elizabeth Hinton traces the rise of mass incarceration to an ironic source: the social welfare programs of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society at the height of the civil rights era.

Johnson’s War on Poverty policies sought to foster equality and economic opportunity. But these initiatives were also rooted in widely shared assumptions about African Americans’ role in urban disorder, which prompted Johnson to call for a simultaneous War on Crime. The 1965 Law Enforcement Assistance Act…

Eight years of 8tracks

September 4, 2016

8tracks blog

8tracks, my oldest ‘child’ in a sense, turns 8 today (we launched on 8/8/2008). So I thought it’d be a good time to reflect on the 8+ years that’ve gone into it, beginning with a bit about me.

I grew up in Delavan, a town of 2,000 in central Illinois. After graduating from high school — with roughly the same 50 people with whom I’d started kindergarten — I went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I studied accounting, joined once-venerable Arthur Andersen in Chicago, and fully intended to go to a finance-focused business school after a few years.

But after 3 years at Andersen, I had the opportunity to move to London, ostensibly to further my professional development but really, in large part, so I could explore its amazing electronic music scene. Around the same time, I read Nicholas Negroponte’s Being Digital, which predicted how the internet would ultimately change…

#Attlee Descendents Urge Support for #Corbyn

August 12, 2016



Letter to all Labour Members 

“As Clem Attlee’s great niece and great nephew we would like to strongly endorse the continued leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.

Under our great uncle as Prime Minister, the Labour Government enabled the creation of the Welfare State, inaugurated the National Health Service, implemented a major council housing building programme and achieved full employment, increased living standards and economic growth. This was done at a time of economic debt which makes any recent debt pale into insignificance. We applaud the success of Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell at exposing the economic fallacy behind the doctrine of Austerity and setting both the national agenda and the course of Labour Party away from this failed economic model into one that invests both in the economic future and in all the people of this country, with no-one left behind.

We urge all members and MPs to vote for and…
