Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) joined Hillary Clinton for their first joint campaign appearance on Monday to introduce an economic plan that the presumptive Democratic nominee hopes will rally the populist spirit stirred by rival Bernie Sanders.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Warren will regret her endorsement, because Hillary will not honour her words. She is too owned by Wall Street.

Ukrainians Flock to the Crimea for Peace and Quiet

Ukrainians Flock to the Crimea for Peace and Quiet | Global politics | Scoop.it
Some of our friends came to see us for a week and reported huge queues at the border with Ukraine. A lot of Ukrainians want to vacation in the Crimea.Last night there were up to 300-400 people in the town of Armyansk, where it took four hours to cross the border, and the numbers considerably increased through the week. In general, I agree with the Crimean authorities that this season is going to be record-breaking, thanks to Ukraine as well.

Corbyn fans should welcome this attempted coup, the Blairites are committing political suicide | The Canary

Corbyn fans should welcome this attempted coup, the Blairites are committing political suicide | The Canary | Global politics | Scoop.it
Corbyn fans should welcome this attempted coup, the Blairites are committing political suicide from The Canary on 26th June 2016
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Corbyn supporters should be ecstatic, because this opportunistic and ignorant move is an act of political suicide for the Blairites.
But the British public aren’t idiots. This move by the increasingly bitter but withered ranks of Blairite Labour MPs has been seen as rank opportunism, and detrimental to the urgent work required to ensure a progressive exit from the European Union. The reaction has been swift, and defiant.

Brexit and the diseased liberal mind

Brexit and the diseased liberal mind | Global politics | Scoop.it
The enraged liberal reaction to the Brexit vote is in full flood. The anger is pathological – and helps to shed light on why a majority of Britons voted
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Just this afternoon a Labour member asked me “Why do these MPs who want to remove Jeremy want a Leadership election when the outcome of a Leadership election would be Jeremy being re-elected?”. The truth is, there are some MPs who either want to install a new leader without a leadership election or get a new leader through a Leadership Election in which Jeremy is prevented from taking part.

The DNC Just Torpedoed the Majority of Bernie Sanders' Agenda

The DNC Just Torpedoed the Majority of Bernie Sanders' Agenda | Global politics | Scoop.it
A glimpse into a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Senator Sanders has yet to endorse Hillary Clinton and insists he is still running as a candidate for the Democratic nomination, indicating that he has no intention of backing down. Despite the platform being non-binding, however, it seems as though Clinton’s appointees and the DNC establishment have little interest in supporting progressive policies even rhetorically.

Germany Is Destroying Itself While NATO Promotes Aggression (Interview with Willy Wimmer)

Germany Is Destroying Itself While NATO Promotes Aggression (Interview with Willy Wimmer) | Global politics | Scoop.it
Germany is disassembling itself, says Willy Wimmer, former State Secretary of the CDU (German Christian Democratic Party) and its „conscience“. For 33 years Wimmer was a member of the Bundestag (German Federal Parliament). Now he is one of the harshest critics of Angela Merkel in Germany.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
NATO mutated from a defense alliance into a beast of aggression, stationed 150 km away from the Leningrad state in Russia. War is in the air. Steinmeier's statement is no more than a last stand-up within a party, that has brought back war to Europe together with the Clintons in 1999, issuing the attack of NATO on Belgrade, and sold out the soul of the Worker's party to the 2010 agenda

Crimea Will Become Even More Russian Than Before (Video)

Crimea Will Become Even More Russian Than Before (Video) | Global politics | Scoop.it
This is probably the most long-awaited bridge in Russian history. The idea of its construction has been hanging in the air from the very beginning of the 20th century. The project was postponed countless times - because of WWI, WWII, boundary disputes between Russia and Ukraine, and so on. And now it seems that the idea is to be finally fulfilled: Crimea will join Russia, not only de jure but very literally.

Die Briten haben auch Merkels Alleingänge abgewählt

Die Briten haben auch Merkels Alleingänge abgewählt | Global politics | Scoop.it
Großbritannien verlässt die EU, weil eine Mehrheit das Versagen der Gemeinschaft nicht mehr hinnehmen will. Dazu hat die Kanzlerin mit ihren Alleingängen bei den Flüchtlingen maßgeblich beigetragen.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Für die Chefin einer Partei, die das europäische Erbe von Konrad Adenauer und Helmut Kohl verwaltet, ist das ein Offenbarungseid. Im Grunde haben die britischen Wähler am Donnerstag auch Angela Merkel abgewählt. Bevor sie endgültig zur Totengräberin der EU wird, müsste sie sich an David Cameron ein Beispiel nehmen.
