Communist Workers Platform USA: On the attempted assassination of Trump

Statement by the Central Committee of the Communist Workers Platform USA (CWPUSA):

On the evening of July 13, a gunman opened fire at a Trump rally in Pennsylvania. The gunman grazed Trump’s ear, leaving him bloodied, with one attendee dead and two others wounded. These individual acts of adventurism have proven throughout history to be a dead-end which can only harm real efforts to gather the movement for the socialist revolution. In the US, many examples exist of failed or successful assassination attempts.

U.S Presidential Debate: Trump Gains, Biden Falters, Monopolies Win

In the aftermath of the Presidential debate, President Joe Biden is the main loser against Republican candidate Donald Trump, sparking discussions about potentially changing the Democratic candidate for the upcoming November presidential elections. 
 
The two candidates clashed on issues like abortion, immigration, the conflicts in Ukraine and Gaza, and economic management while also engaging in personal attacks. Although polls indicate a close race, Trump currently leads in several swing states that often determine the election outcome.

Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) votes in favor of Trump's war budget

The much-celebrated star of U.S. social democracy, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez  (AOC) recently endorsed the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 which is actually a deal between the Trump administration and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 

By a bipartisan vote of 284-149, the House approved the bill, sending it to the Senate, which is expected to debate it next week. Among other issues, the bill adds billions of dollars to military spending thus including about $738 billion for fiscal 2020 which is a 3 percent increase from current year levels.

A pseudo-socialist: Bernie Sanders praises imperialist criminal George HW Bush...

Senator Bernie Sanders- the much publicized supposed "socialist" of the Democratic Party- did it again! In a message published on his personal Twitter account, he praised the recently deceased former U.S. President George H.W. Bush as a man who "served our country honorably", pointing out that he will be remembered for his "humble and devoted service to the country". 

What, we are compelled to ask, is Bernie Sanders, who present himself as a political figure of the left and even socialist, talking about? Did he forget about the crimes that George H.W. Bush committed during his presidential term? Doesn't he know about the imperialist wars in Iraq and Panama? Does Bernie Sanders know how many people were massacred as a result of Bush's decision to invade Iraq in the Gulf War?

U.S. Midterm Elections: The working class trapped between capitalism's dead ends

The “next day” of the November 6th Midterm Elections in the United States finds the working masses of the country trapped between the continuous, sharpening intra-bourgeois confrontation between the two major parties (Republicans and Democrats). 

Once again, the election process proved that the capital is in the driver's seat while the workers and the popular strata remain disempowered and marginalized.

Any change in the correlation of forces between the Democrats and the Republicans in the Senate or the House of Representatives does not change the essense of the situation for the American people.
