Austria: Walter Baier, former national chairman of the Communist Party of Austria interviewed by Real News




Democracy and Class Struggle says that the victory in the referendum of Mr Van Der Bellen in the Presidential Elections while at one level is a defeat for the right - also contains a contradiction Mr Van Der Bellen is a neo -liberal and believes in European Union and austerity policies.

In the coming Parliamentary elections it is unlikely that the United Front against the Freedom Party which allowed this Presidential victory against the right in Austria can be be maintained.


Trump's Connection to European Far Right



Democracy and Class Struggle says The Focus on Frank Gaffney in this interview shows the marriage of  convenience of pro and anti Russian forces on the far right and also a major emerging contradiction between pro and anti Russia right wing forces in Europe and USA.

Democracy and Class Struggle does not believe a word that comes out of Donald Trumps mouth ( neither does Donald Trump believe in anything he says) but we closely watch his actions.


From Iran  to China we see rapidly deepening conflict with Trump administration with Russia being unable to be a "broker" but having in its own strategic interests to defend Iran and China against the "mad dogs" unleashed in Washington.

The sooner that it is recognized and prepared for the more chance we have of surviving a Trump administration - if Russia continues to harbor grand illusions about Trump then war is inevitable.



Now the reason the enlightened prince and the wise general conquer the enemy whenever they move and their achievements surpass those of ordinary men is foreknowledge. Sun Tzu

How would a US - Iran war Begin ?



Democracy and Class Struggle's investigation of the emerging Trump administration views of Iran are serious cause for concern especially in view of opportunistic Iran war views emerging once again in Israel.

The expansion of the nuclear submarine capability of Israel that we recently reported on and the political re - alignment in the United States Trump administration towards a hostile policy towards Iran in 2017 are major threats not only to regional but global security in 2017.

We publish above a video from 2009 which argued for rationality and realism in US foreign policy towards Iran and restraint of Israel, rationality and realism will have a very major challenge under Donald J Trump in 2017 now the dogs have been let out.

Italy: Matteo Renzi Resigns following defeat in referendum on Constitutional Reform : End of Eurozone ?



Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has resigned after suffering a heavy defeat in a referendum over his plan to reform the constitution.

In a late-night news conference, he said he took responsibility for the outcome, and said the No camp must now make clear proposals.

With most ballots counted, the No vote leads with 60% against 40% for Yes.

The turnout was nearly 70%, in a vote that was seen as a chance to register discontent with the prime minister.

"Good luck to us all," Mr Renzi told reporters. He said he would tell a cabinet meeting on Monday afternoon that he was resigning, then tender his resignation to the Italian president.

The result is being seen as a blow to the EU, although there is no question of Italy following the UK out of the door.

Both Five Star and the Northern League are opposed to the eurozone but not to membership of the EU itself.

So far, mainstream EU politicians have been slow to react.

EU Economics Commissioner Pierre Moscovici dismissed the referendum as a domestic issue and said it was not a vote against the EU.

"It's a solid country with solid authorities and I have complete confidence that Italy can handle this situation," he told French TV.

The Governor of the Bank of France, Francois Villeroy, who is also a policymaker for the European Central Bank, put a brave face on it.

"The referendum in Italy yesterday may be deemed as another source of uncertainty," he said. "However, it cannot be compared to the British referendum: Italian people have been called to the polls to vote on an internal constitutional matter, and not on Italy's long-standing EU membership."
