Ted Cruz met with Obama prior to RNC, Endorses Hillary, Rick Perry set to Destroy Cruz | EUTimes.net

Ted Cruz met with Obama prior to RNC, Endorses Hillary, Rick Perry set to Destroy Cruz | EUTimes.net | Global politics | Scoop.it
Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz met with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi just days before the Republican National Convention, allegedly to talk about the police
Enrique Ferro's insight:
According to some RNC insiders, Ted Cruz’s official speech included a much friendlier message for the Republican Party and for the Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump but then he pulled out of his pocket another speech. He ignored the teleprompters and read a different speech. This was all a big set up that he probably conspired with Obama and Pelosi while on board Air Force One.

Cold War in Sports? Protests Grow Over Russian Athletes’ Ban From Rio | Global politics | Scoop.it
More and more athletes and sports specialists around the world are protesting the decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to ban the Russian athletics team from participating in the upcoming Rio Olympics.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
This is a clear case of some people trying to politicize sports, to sally Russia’s image in the world and give it a bad name. This is a group of countries, led by the US, which I call as political double-dealers and crooks,

Good as Goldman: Hillary and Wall Street

Good as Goldman: Hillary and Wall Street | Global politics | Scoop.it
Nothing seems to rattle Hillary Clinton quite so much as pointed questions about her personal finances. How much she’s made. How she made it. Where it all came from. From her miraculous adventures in the cattle futures market to the Whitewater real estate scam, many of the most venal Clinton scandals down the decades have involved Hillary’s financial entanglements and the serpentine measures she has taken to conceal them from public scrutiny.

Hillary is both driven to acquire money and emits a faint whiff of guilt about having hoarded so much of it. One might be tempted to ascribe her squeamishness about wealth to her rigid Methodism, but her friends say that Hillary’s covetousness derives from a deep obsession with feeling secure, which makes a kind of sense given Bill’s free-wheeling proclivities. She’s not, after all, a child of the Depression, but a baby boomer. Hillary was raised in comfortable circumstances in the Chicago suburbs and, unlike her husband, has never in her life felt the sting of want.

Hillary and Tim Kaine: a Match Made on Wall Street

Hillary and Tim Kaine: a Match Made on Wall Street | Global politics | Scoop.it
Earlier this week, Bernie Sanders warned that Hillary Clinton’s eventual vice presidential pick must not be someone from the milieu of Wall Street and Corporate America. And while Sanders is still fighting to win the Democratic Party nomination in what many have argued is a rigged system with a foregone conclusion, it appears that Sanders is also intent on influencing the course of the Clinton campaign and the party itself.

In a thinly veiled demand that Clinton embrace the core principles of the Sanders campaign in order to secure the support of Sanders’s political base, the insurgent Democratic candidate hoped aloud “that the vice-presidential candidate will not be from Wall Street, will be somebody who has a history of standing up and fighting for working families, taking on the drug companies…taking on Wall Street, taking on corporate America, and fighting for a government that works for all of us, not just the 1

In signal to military, Hillary Clinton picks Senator Tim Kaine as running mate - World Socialist Web Site

In signal to military, Hillary Clinton picks Senator Tim Kaine as running mate - World Socialist Web Site | Global politics | Scoop.it
In selecting Kaine, Clinton is making clear that she plans on running a right-wing, pro-war campaign targeted at winning over the military and sections of the Republican Party dissatisfied with Trump.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Kaine is among the most hawkish figures among Senate Democrats. As governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010, Kaine oversaw billions of dollars in cuts to the state budget. The state of Virginia is a major center for the military and defense industry, and is home to the Pentagon and the headquarters of the CIA.

Athletic Team Ban is an 'Act of Political Sabotage Against Russia'

Athletic Team Ban is an 'Act of Political Sabotage Against Russia' | Global politics | Scoop.it
Banning Russia's entire athletics team from taking part in the 2016 Rio Games was a politically motivated decision, Italian MP Gianluca Pini told Sputnik.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
By banning Russia from the sport world, and punishing the guilty and the innocent alike, the international sports officials (most likely bowing to US pressure) are playing god who would decide to smash to smithereens Sodom and Gomorrah, with all dwellers within, including children. Are we in the 21st century? Why are we taken back to ancient times? What is civilization wortn for?

From Silent Majority to White-Hot Rage: Observations from Cleveland

From Silent Majority to White-Hot Rage: Observations from Cleveland | Global politics | Scoop.it
The 2016 Republican National Convention began in the immediate shadow of a highly publicized death spiral involving police and black civilians in Dallas, Falcon Heights, and Baton Rouge. Against this backdrop, the Trump campaign seemed to choose the legacy of Richard Nixon rather than Ronald Reagan as the party’s patron saint. Indeed, 1968 has functioned as myth and symbol throughout the Trump campaign, as they have leaned on racially-charged Nixonian phrases like ‘law and order’, ‘Silent Majority’ and ‘forgotten Americans.’ It might be more accurate to say that Trump has bundled Nixon together with George Wallace, the segregationist Alabama governor whose independent campaign for president that year was more openly racist and confrontational, but who with Nixon defined the Republican Party’s white populist turn.

Going into the convention, top Trump campaign aide Paul Manafort shocked reporters by suggesting that the violent atmosphere of “lawlessness” surrounding the convention was welcome. Indeed, even Wallace had been more tactful in his approach. When asked by reporters about the riots that occurred in the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in April 1968, Wallace told a reporter, “Of course, any breakdown in law and order is going to support the position of anybody like me who is against a break-down in law and order. Now I don’t want to be helped that way. All I say is they seem to be getting worse and nobody wants to try to stop it.”

Political Correctness: Handle with Care

Political Correctness: Handle with Care | Global politics | Scoop.it
Racial, gender, and ethnic diversity matters, of course, but political correctness (PC) tied to bourgeois identity politics can be deadly to Left thinkers and activists and to the causes of peace and social justice. Part of what made the deeply conservative Barack Obama attractive to the U.S. corporate and imperial establishment during the long run up to the 2008 presidential election was the American power elite’s reasonable, born-out expectation that Obama’s skin color and status as a First Black President (FBP) would help make progressives, leftists, and serious liberals reluctant to forthrightly protest his coming service to the nation’s unelected and interrelated dictatorships of money, class, empire, and (curiously and stealthily enough) white privilege. Smart power brokers calculated correctly that political correctness around race – and the related fear of being considered racist because one dared to criticize a FBP – would help keep the left in check on Obama’s corporatist, Wall Street-pleasing, and imperial policies.

“What matters,” Fanon wrote 63 years ago in his first book, Black Skin, White Masks, “is not so much the color of your skin as the power you serve and the millions you betray.”
