 The way to war, which will surely prove to be the road to hell, seems
open with a Third Gulf War looming on humanity’s horizon. Once
again, Iran is the enemy. Again, as in 2003, a president is surrounded
by bellicose advisers intent on just such a war and looking for the
right excuse to launch it.

 The hard-right national security adviser successfully tanked the Iran
deal. His next target? The North Korea talks.

 New York’s sort-of-third party has won some big victories in the
past two decades but its future is uncertain after defying Andrew
Cuomo and his labor allies to endorse Cynthia Nixon. This Saturday -
May 19 - the Working Families State Convention is in Harlem.

 I had been a community organizer all my life; I was one of the top
leaders of the Communist Party of the United States, joining as a
teenager, staying some years...at a certain point in my life, I knew
it was time to leave. I was a supporter of perestroika and glasnost
and the party rejected it...

 Garment and textile workers are organizing to improve their pay. They
are amongst the least paid in the country, often earning less than
$1.00 per day.

 CURSING CORTES [https://portside.org/2018-05-17/cursing-cortes]

 ÁLVARO ENRIGUE 
 May 24, 2018 
_ The New York Review of Books _ 
 The simple story of Cortéss evisceration of the the Aztecs is not so
simple. In letters to Spains King Carlos I, justifying morally
Mexico’s occupation, Cortés distorted what was in fact a messy and
confusing war involving several armies from already competing European
nations. His lies linger.
