 Hillary Clinton and Her Hawks :  Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Last month, the think tank run by Michele Flournoy, the former Defense Department official considered to be most likely to be Clinton’s choice to be Secretary of Defense, explicitly called for “limited military strikes” against the Assad regime. And earlier this month Leon Panetta, former Defense Secretary and CIA Director, who has been advising candidate Clinton, declared in an interview that the next president would have to increase the number of Special Forces and carry out air strikes to help “moderate” groups against President Bashal al-Assad. (When Panetta gave a belligerent speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night, he was interrupted by chants from the delegates on the floor of “no more war!”

Long Live the Queen of Chaos

Long Live the Queen of Chaos | Global politics | Scoop.it
For those to whom this hasn’t yet occurred, if Hillary Clinton is elected President she will be President. The Democratic Party platform, Bernie Sanders’ program proposals and Mrs. Clinton’s theorized move Left will be but distant memories. If Mrs. Clinton brings with her a Democratic Congress (or not) she will use it to pass the TPP and TTIP ‘trade’ agreements, to launch ‘liberal’ wars across the Middle East and rattle sabers against Russia, she will re-launch the ‘Grand Bargain’ to cut Social Security and Medicare under the pretext of a fiscal crisis and should Wall Street falter, she will ‘hold her nose’ and once again bail out her benefactors. This is the program her supporters are voting for.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Every subtle lesson I was ever subliminally given about the bullies across the border and their rudeness and their lack of education and their self-given right to bomb whoever they wanted in the world for no reason other than that they wanted something the people in the other country had, and their greed, came oozing to the surface of my psyche.

Is Europe Burning? Events Propelling Trump Into White House

Is Europe Burning? Events Propelling Trump Into White House | Global politics | Scoop.it
“Events, dear boy, events,” British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan supposedly said when discussing what political leaders most feared. No politician, however skilled, can predict the future. But they can manage expectations and perceptions. And that’s precisely what Donald Trump did with his masterful speech at the Republican National Convention, creating a confirmation bias through which all future terrorist attacks will be interpreted. Since he spoke, […]

The Libertarian Book Of TRUMP

The Libertarian Book Of TRUMP | Global politics | Scoop.it
In a new book, “The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed,” I argue that Donald J. Trump is the quintessential post-constitutional candidate. In the “Opening Statement,” titled “Welcome To The Post-Constitutional Jungle,” oldies will recognize a nod to the Guns N’ Roses classic, “Welcome to the Jungle,” as well as to broadcaster Mark Levin’s […]

  Silencing America As It Prepares For War:  Information Clearing House - ICH

  Silencing America As It Prepares For War:  Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
The hysteria in the liberal media over Trump serves an illusion of “free and open debate” and “democracy at work”. His views on immigrants and Muslims are grotesque, yet the deporter-in-chief  of vulnerable people from America is not Trump but Obama, whose betrayal of people of colour is his legacy: such as the warehousing of a mostly black prison population, now more numerous than Stalin’s gulag.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“Only Donald Trump has said anything meaningful and critical of US foreign policy,” wrote Stephen Cohen, emeritus professor of Russian History at Princeton and NYU, one of the few Russia experts in the United States to speak out about the risk of war. In a radio broadcast, Cohen referred to critical questions Trump alone had raised. Among them: why is the United States “everywhere on the globe”? What is NATO’s true mission? Why does the US always pursue regime change in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Ukraine? Why does Washington treat Russia and Vladimir Putin as an enemy?

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.'"

Might The Donald Be Good for Peace?  :  Information Clearing House - ICH

Might The Donald Be Good for Peace?  :  Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
As to confrontation with Russia, Washington has ensured that its Brussels sub-office, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, will go on playing its toy-soldier games right up to Russia’s borders. The official statement after NATO’s war drum-thumping conclave in Warsaw on July 8-9 is indicative of its determination to continue its attempts to menace Russia, which has not made the slightest move to threaten a single NATO member. It is absurd to claim that “the security situation has deteriorated” in the Black Sea and the Baltic because of Russian action.

The Democrat is a monolith of Neoliberal Imperialism, a proud servant of Gangster Capitalism, a furious jingoist exceptionalist, and a supporter of brutal absolutist regimes everywhere. She is the cynosure and CEO of the financial party elite and the effective enemy and betrayer of the broad and vital interests of a plurality of Democrat and independent voters.
