Enrique Ferro's insight:
Will she repeat Obama's prowess and be awarded the Peace Nobel Award for a speech? The Norwegians would be tempted, but their case would be a pathetic case of memory loss and poor judgment.

Hillary: Golly, I had no idea the DNC was rigging the primaries

Hillary: Golly, I had no idea the DNC was rigging the primaries | Global politics | Scoop.it
Whenever there's a scandal involving a Clinton, you can be sure that the Clintons knew nothing about it. They are forever "out of the loop" when it comes to the sleazy, underhanded activities of their lackeys.  This has been true in virtually every nefarious Clinton-based plot for the last twenty-five years, and there's no reason to think anything's changed.

As always, when it comes to the DNC tipping the scales in her favor during the primaries, Hillary Clinton had no idea.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
She beats the Guinness Book record as serial liar!

IRS Launches Investigation Of Clinton Foundation | Zero Hedge

Lawmakers charged the Clinton Foundation is a “lawless ‘pay-to-play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years and should be investigated.”
Enrique Ferro's insight:
House Republicans singled out Laureate Education and Uranium One as two companies that seemed to have paid lavish sums to the Clintons and later received official government benefits. Laureate hired former President Bill Clinton as “honorary chancellor,” paying him $16.5 million over five years. The Baltimore-based company, which operates for-profit universities in 28 countries, also donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to the foundation’s web site. While Bill was collecting a paycheck from the company and his wife was secretary of state, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), an arm of the World Bank, invested $150 million in Laureate. It was the largest-ever single IFC investment to an educational company. The United States government is the largest contributor to the IFC. During that same period, the Department of State’s U.S. Agency for International Development awarded $55 million to the International Youth Foundation. Laureate CEO Douglas Becker is on the foundation’s board of directors. International Youth Foundation, the Clinton Foundation and Laureate jointly participated in foundation programs.

Presenting "Putin's Useful Idiot": Anyone Who Disagrees With The Establishment

Presenting "Putin's Useful Idiot": Anyone Who Disagrees With The Establishment | Global politics | Scoop.it
After Trump doubles down against the neocon agenda, their mainstream media are getting desperate, as Zerohedge explains below.  Now they are taking a page from the German media, who would label anyone who questioned the hostile line against Russia as a "Putinversteher", which means "Putin sympathizer".  Predictably, the strategy backfired, and now the moniker has become something of a joke in Germany.

Hungary’s Prime Minister is Rooting for Trump, Hates Hillary | Global politics | Scoop.it
Because of its geographic position, Hungary is a key player in the European terrorism debacle, and it's leader, Victor Orban, is clearly pro-Trump. He is also a fan of Russia, often speaking out against the relentless neocon Putin demonization of his fellow EU leaders.  He also really dislikes the Clintons, whom he basically accused of being puppets of fellow-Hungarian, George Soros.  From the FT:

Hillary Clinton's convention message: She's good enough to beat Trump

Hillary Clinton's convention message: She's good enough to beat Trump | Global politics | Scoop.it
She may not be an inspirational candidate, but her job now is to persuade voters she's the last best hope against the mogul.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Norman Solomon, a Sanders delegate and coordinator of the Bernie Delegates Network (which is not affiliated with the Sanders campaign), complained that the convention was full of "cheerleading for war." Chuck Pennacchio, a Sanders delegate from Pennsylvania, warned that Sanders delegates were not content to "hand the ball" to Clinton. He added, "Clinton and her surrogates need to get out in the field and say [to Sanders supporters], 'I really want to hear you.' And that has not happened." He griped, "When I talk to the Hillary people, they say, 'Get over yourself.'"

Confirmed: More than 96% of Bernie Sanders Supporters Won’t Support Hillary Clinton | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Of course not! She is a corrupt politician and a warmonger. A corporate candidate, a Wall Street minion. If Sanders was unable or afraid of broaching his campaign by challenging the system along with Jill Stein, I think Sandernistas should go to Jill, whatever the consequences. After all, there is no less evil: Trump's words are hot air, but Hillary's deeds are bloody.

5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win | MICHAEL MOORE

5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win | MICHAEL MOORE | Global politics | Scoop.it
This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Michael, I love you and your films, but you disappoint me. So voting for a hawk is the most  "progressive" idea you have in stock, just to stop a "protofascist". Are you sacred of a "buffoon" as you said, and his words i.e. hot air, and not of a murderous warmonger and her deeds, i.e., blood? What can you expect from someone who showed off her moral category by laughing out loud of the vicious killing of a fallen foe (along the destruction of his country and the reinforcement of international terror)? A serial liar, who has used her SoS position to get bribes and commissions to line her pocket via her Foundation? An arrogant person who boasts her own rules to be above the law? A sinister coup-maker responsible for the death of Berta Cáceres and many others in Honduras? A promoter of fracking, a minion of Wall Street. Not a racist in her deception but an enthusiastic supporter of the "Superpredator" Black mass incarceration and the misery resulted of her husband's obliteration of the remains of the New Deal of great memory? And so on and so forth.
Really, you disappoint me.

Thank you for the funeral of track and field athletics. This is motivated solely by political expediency. All the conclusions are directed at the VAFLA (All-Russia Athletic Federation) and there nothing against the athletes, this is clearly a ‘zakazukha’ (a ‘hit’). We had hope, now we lost it .

Although the decision is a compromise, it’s clear that the world has changed and the US is not so almighty anymore.
