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.
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.

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."
