Former vice president Joe Biden has just had another good night in the Democratic Party primary race. It looks increasingly likely that he will take the nomination to face Donald Trump in November rather than progressive challenger Bernie Sanders. But one group of activists has pointed out that the process itself might not have been as ‘free and fair’ as it’s being presented.

After surprise ‘Super Tuesday’ victories, a new video emerges showing Joe Biden for the liar and charlatan he is
It’s no secret that former vice president Joe Biden’s progressive credentials are paper-thin. Following the resurrection of his campaign in the Democratic Party’s primary contest, his past political positions have been getting put under greater scrutiny. Now, a new video has exposed him as a repeated and unrepentant liar and plagiarist as well as a supporter of reactionary policies.
Joe Biden has just made a comeback in the Democratic Party primary campaign. But the author of a scathing new exposé has told The Canary that the former vice president is “basically Hillary Clinton… in many ways with her weaknesses turned up to 11”.

As negotiations on a trade deal between the UK and US have heated up, so has debate about food and animal welfare standards. But the whole discussion has missed a much larger issue. The question of food self-sufficiency seems to have hardly arisen at all.
Bernie Sanders is the clear front-runner going into the South Carolina presidential primary. And debate is now shifting from whether Sanders can win the nomination, to whether he might actually beat Donald Trump in the general election this coming November. And it seems that not only are Sanders’ supporters feeling confident he might – so are Trump’s.
Bernie Sanders has recently come under fire for statements about the government of Cuba. The attacks have been vicious, and they need calling out. Because his comments are not only perfectly accurate but also shine an important light on a gaping blind spot in the US political psyche.
As Bernie Sanders solidifies his place as the frontrunner in the Democratic Party primary, his rivals are going into full-scale attack mode. They’ve been using classic ‘red-baiting’ tactics by homing in on his status as a self-identified ‘democratic socialist’. This needs calling out. But it’s also worth considering whether Sanders’s use of the ‘s word’ is helpful – or even accurate.
