'Beholden to AIPAC' -- progressive senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama's actions

'Beholden to AIPAC' -- progressive senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama's actions | Global politics | Scoop.it
Vermont Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders and Kentucky's Rand Paul were among the dozen holdouts from a letter the Israel lobby group AIPAC circulated seeking to limit President Obama's actions to oppose Israeli settlements in his last months in office. Still, many progressive US senators as well as vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine signed on to an Israel lobby letter designed to limit President Obama's actions against the Israeli occupation, now nearly 50 years old.

 Celebrating the One Percent: Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Although no moviegoers wanted to see the heroes of the Great Escape movie captured and put back in their prison camp, a great many people wish that the Wall Street crooks from Citigroup, Bank of America and other junk-mortgage fraudsters would be sent to jail, along with Angelo Mazilo of Countrywide Financial. Little love is given to their political lobbyists such as Alan Greenspan, Attorney General Eric Holder, Lanny Breuer and their hirees who refused to prosecute financial fraud.

Noam Chomsky on the Evolution of Language: A Biolinguistic Perspective

Noam Chomsky on the Evolution of Language: A Biolinguistic Perspective | Global politics | Scoop.it
Noam Chomsky explains the biolinguist perspective -- that language represents a state of some component of the mind.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
However, a great deal has been learned since then. Within biology, it is now recognized that the variety of life forms is very limited, so much so that the hypothesis of a "universal genome" has been seriously advanced. My own feeling is that linguistics has undergone a similar development, and I will keep here to that strand in contemporary study of language.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
It is clear that Poroshenko did not go the United States to address the UN. He went so as to comply with the age old tradition of kissing the sultan’s shoes. Ah, sorry, I didn’t formulate this right. In modern diplomatic language, this procedure is called “discussing strategic cooperation with Hillary Clinton.” A meeting was held, but there were no specific promises confirmed by the American side.

Don't Try to Imitate the Russians in Syria

Don't Try to Imitate the Russians in Syria | Global politics | Scoop.it
It is the war itself, not the absence of any particular political outcome, that makes Syria a concern for U.S. interests. It is the war itself, not the continuation of the Assad regime, that gave ISIS the opportunity to gain a foothold in Syria, and it is the war itself that has been causing much human suffering.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The moderate, effective opposition fighter is the Syrian version of Piltdown Man, a presumed creature who never really existed, at least not in the numbers and with the organization that would have made a difference.

Russia Views Hillary Clinton as An "Existential Threat" to Peace

Russia Views Hillary Clinton as An "Existential Threat" to Peace | Global politics | Scoop.it
“Who gave NATO the right to kill Gaddafi?” After Gaddafi was murdered on the streets of Sirte, Putin astutely stated:
“The whole world saw him being killed; all bloodied. Is that democracy? And who did it? Drones, including American ones, delivered a strike on his motorcade. Then commandos – who were not supposed to be there – brought in so-called opposition and militants and killed him without trial. I’m not saying that Gaddafi didn’t have to quit, but that should have been left up to the people of Libya to decide through the democratic process.”
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Clearly, Russia was very disappointed that the so-called no-fly zone in Libya had been used to undermine the international legal process and overthrow the leader of a sovereign nation — something they could have prevented at the Security Council level with the use of their veto power had Hillary not convinced them otherwise. Clinton’s subsequent laughter at this flagrant violation of international law is a slap in the face to the Russian establishment that continues to advocate for a stronger working relationship with the United States and a return to classical international law. Russia, therefore, likely views Clinton not only as a mentally unstable candidate but one who could be the president to drown all other presidents in history by finally pulling the trigger on Russia.

M of A - Hillary Clinton Lost

Enrique Ferro's insight:
There is some Hail Mary chance for the Democrats to still win. Immediately retire Clinton for medical reasons. Draft Sanders and offer Tulsi Gabbard the vice-presidency. Otherwise, I predict, Trump will win. To what outcome? Nobody knows. Electing Trump is a blind dart throw with unpredictable results. But that still feels better than to again see a Clinton in the White House.

'Worse than a crime - it was a blunder' - the consequences of the U.S. attack on the Syrian army

'Worse than a crime - it was a blunder' - the consequences of the U.S. attack on the Syrian army | Global politics | Scoop.it
The US attack on the Syrian troops fighting ISIS exposes the moral bankruptcy of US policy, its disregard for international law, and its contempt for the United Nations.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
A visibly shocked Vitaly Churkin reported that when his US counterpart greeted him, she told him that ‘she was not interested’ in what he had to say. This in terms of diplomatic rhetoric is a new low even for an Obama administration staffed full of people who understand too little about the world to be in the diplomatic sector in the first place. But more than just an insult to Russia, it is an insult to the United Nations which ought to be a forum of respectful if not tense discussions even in times of crisis.
