Bogus history The BIG lie that lead us into WWI

Bogus history The BIG lie that lead us into WWI | Global politics | Scoop.it
TV about what's REALLY going on.
Enrique Ferro's insight:


Why did the US get involved
with WWI?

It was largely based on an
emotional response to 128
American dying on the
Lusitania.

The problem?  This wasn't
a war crime at all.

​Russell Brand blames ‘mental illness plague’ for Germanwings crash

​Russell Brand blames ‘mental illness plague’ for Germanwings crash | Global politics | Scoop.it
Comedian turned activist Russell Brand has blamed last week’s Germanwings plane crash on a “mental illness plague” in capitalist society, accelerated by “propaganda” media.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The reason we are now in a “mental illness plague” is because of those “in power,” Brand says. “FOX News is what causes mental illnesses.”

FOX News is a “propaganda” system which “separates us from one another and tells us the way to solve our individual problems is through purchasing, through identifying primarily through our role as consumers,” Brand claims.

The channel condemns those “who are weaker,” Brand adds.

Fort Russ: Ukraine’s default postponed until June

Fort Russ: Ukraine’s default postponed until June | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Without the second tranche, the internal conflicts within the Junta which are so far held in check by the need to abide by the outwardly legitimate triad of president-government-parliament, will tear the regime from within (Kolomoysky was but the first warning). It will become clear in May exactly how the supported from outside regime will be destroyed.

‘Forced measure’ – theater boss sacked after church row over Tannhauser opera

‘Forced measure’ – theater boss sacked after church row over Tannhauser opera | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Russian Culture Ministry had to replace the general director of Novosibirsk Opera Theater because the recent row with the Orthodox Church over a controversial opera staging led to a conflict in society, a senior Kremlin official has said.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The issue is highly sensitive. Can a mob of bigots subject the arts to censorship? But are mavericks licensed to provoke religious riots for pasting the walls of a city with desecrating posters? Where is the balance?

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Poroshenko's gambit: place Ps's battalions at the most dangerous areas and make them useful to repression, while they remain cannon fodder, and have Yarosh at arm's length. In the meantime win time and rebuild the army, so that PS becomes irrelevant and is destroyed by the Novorossians in armed engagements.

Fort Russ: The Evolution of Opinion: A close look at 15 years of Putin presidency | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The economy that Putin inherited was not simply weak, it was collapsing. A lot had to be done starting from zero. That’s when Putin took his first steps. “What happened then, what the entire team shared was the desire to carry out reforms. We were all in agreement. We followed a strict program which was prepared at the time on Vladimir Putin’s initiative,” notes Aleksey Kudrin, the former Minister of Finance.

George Soros ready to invest $1bn in Ukraine

George Soros ready to invest $1bn in Ukraine | Global politics | Scoop.it
US hedge fund billionaire George Soros said he will invest $1 billion in Ukraine provided the West improves investment conditions, and warned there is no such thing as a ‘benevolent investor’.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Nothing good can come from this self-advertised philanthropist, but in fact a warmongering speculator and vulture capitalist. He wants to invest in agriculture, probably by using EU money? Expect GMOs enough to poison the whole continent and beyond. At least Russians are lucky to remain safe, as that trash is banned in Russia.

Investigative Committee launches probe into desecration of WWII monuments in Ukraine

Investigative Committee launches probe into desecration of WWII monuments in Ukraine | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia’s top law enforcement body has announced that it has started a criminal probe into attacks on WWII monuments and graves that allegedly took place in Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Why should the West be concerned for the desecration of monuments to the victims of and fighters against Nazism, if it is unabashedly supporting a Fascist regime destroying cities in their country and murdering their own citizens? And yet, have our ignorant and philistine politicians and media clergy ever heard of Baby Yar, at least of Evtushensko's poem and Shostakovitch's symphony, both conveying deep sorrow and condemnation?

Germanwings co-pilot treated for suicidal tendencies years ago - prosecutors

Germanwings co-pilot treated for suicidal tendencies years ago - prosecutors | Global politics | Scoop.it
Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot of the Germanwings plane that crashed in the French Alps with 150 people on board last week, had undergone treatment for suicidal tendencies in the past, prosecutors said.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Calling "the leaking of the CVR (cockpit voice recorder) data a serious breach of fundamental and globally accepted international accident investigation rules," the European Cockpit Association said a full investigation had to be complete before such announcements, adding that "the motivation for and consequences of this will need to be addressed."
