OpEdNews Article: Article: A Middle East Holocaust | Global politics | Scoop.it
Look at the Republicans in Congress and in state governments. They hate the environment. They love polluters. They worship Israel and Israel's destruction of the Palestinians and the ongoing theft of the Palestinians' country, a 60-year old activity. Just look at the map of shrinking Palestine. More is stolen each day.

ClubOrlov: License to Kill

ClubOrlov: License to Kill | Global politics | Scoop.it
As empires collapse, they turn inward, and subject their own populations to the same ill treatment to which they subjected others. Here, America is unexceptional: the number of Americans being murdered by their own police, with minimal repercussions for those doing the killing, is quite stunning. When Americans wonder who their enemy really is, they need look no further.

​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.

OpEdNews Article: Article: Putin Is Not Hitler

OpEdNews Article: Article: Putin Is Not Hitler | Global politics | Scoop.it
Calling Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin "Hitler" is undignified and dangerous. The main stream media is leading us down the path to WW3. The neocon party of war has failed to head the real lessons of WW2. The Obama administration says it is aware that the confrontation with Russia could lead to nuclear war. Regardless of the danger, their goal is regime change in Russia.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"One of the novelties of the great-power conflict in the early twenty-first century is the intensity with which political leaders of countries are demonized. An unholy alliance of opportunist politicians and subservient media traduce their opponents, ignoring the views of experts and scholars, to portray them as mendacious and untrustworthy. The basis for treating the other as a legitimate political subject is undermined and in the end justifies political and military intervention."

Even America's ‘Media Watchdogs' Hide U.S.'s Ukrainian Nazification & Ethnic Cleansing By Eric Zuesse

Even America's ‘Media Watchdogs' Hide U.S.'s Ukrainian Nazification & Ethnic Cleansing By Eric Zuesse | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
On 14 January 2015, I headlined “The Most-Censored News Story of 2014 Was ___What___?” and reported that, after an investigation, I had found that, by far, the most-censored news story of 2014 in America was Obama's coup and U.S.-supported ethnic-cleansing in Ukraine. Links were provided there to videos of the the U.S.-backed massacre in the Trade Unions Building in Odessa on 2 May 2014, and the following ethnic cleansing in the Donbass region. However, the U.S. even sponsors firebombings of Donbass in order to get rid of the residents there, and our ‘media watchdogs' are even silent about the 'news' being silent about that. And, here is a good video of America's Ukrainian coup, which overthrew Yanukovych. Here is more about that coup.
