Menace of hypocrisy: Neocon propagandist frets over Russia’s ‘weaponization of information’

Menace of hypocrisy: Neocon propagandist frets over Russia’s ‘weaponization of information’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
There was a strong whiff of hypocrisy in the Washington air on November 13 when the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) hosted a discussion of a report entitled ‘The Menace of Unreality: How the Kremlin Weaponizes Information, Culture, and Money’.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"...US “begin marshaling a coalition for regime change in Syria consisting of countries” like “Britain, France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.”" What a beautiful coalition to establish "democracy" in Syria!!! The same as in Lybia, same coalition, same "democracy"! Small wonder why the Syrians are fiercely fighting the invasion they are enduring...

'Merry Muslim Christmas': Muslim family invites Danes to celebrate Xmas together

'Merry Muslim Christmas': Muslim family invites Danes to celebrate Xmas together | Global politics | Scoop.it
Christmas is not a Muslim holiday per se, but one unorthodox Muslim family in Denmark decided to break the rules. Hussein Allouch's open invitation to celebrate Christmas with his family has gone viral on Facebook, with thousands eager to join in.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Now perhaps the municipalities (and the state!) will take heed and offer the free dinner to their residents, and work for houses, wellfare, education, and the rest, forgetting ethnic and religious divides, and of course, neoliberal economics!

We were just trying to do our jobs – Ruptly journalist arrested for covering Ferguson unrest

We were just trying to do our jobs – Ruptly journalist arrested for covering Ferguson unrest | Global politics | Scoop.it
A producer from RT’s Ruptly video agency was detained in Ferguson simply for reporting on the protests. Denise Reece, who was kept for around five hours before finally being released, said, “I was arrested without any warning.”
Enrique Ferro's insight:

This shows the growing nature of a police state in the US. People can be arrested (if not killed) brutally and in arbitrariness and full impunity, with no explanation and habeas corpus respect. If you are a journalist you may be released without charges, for the time being, and if not your experience may turn nasty... Thank you, Obama.

OpEdNews Article: Article: China builds infrastructure and allies while America destroys both | Global politics | Scoop.it
China realizes that countries that trade together, stay together, and it is putting its State Banks behind a worldwide effort to modernize countries that we've given up on, or even destroyed the infrastructure of.
It is no wonder China is starting to outrank America in international opinion, as it builds what America destroys.

The Games People Play: One Year After the Rise of the Maidan Movement in Ukraine | Global politics | Scoop.it
A Ukrainian commentator looks back on a protest movement ultimately dominated by right-wing nationalism.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The victims who were killed in Maidan, it appears, died for nothing, since all we got was war and ruin in all spheres of society instead of a prosperous country.

Freezing temperatures didn’t stop intrepid passengers from “helping out” a Russian plane that couldn’t move, because its wheels were frozen to the ground. The "selfie" won the day in a remote Siberian town beyond the Arctic Circle.

HA ha, Russians are really astonishing! Whatever they want to do, they manage! For all conceivable harshness. An advise to Western politicians: Don't set Russians off!

Surge in US armored vehicles next to Russian borders | Global politics | Scoop.it
American armored vehicles sent to Poland and the Baltic States for military drills are to remain for the constant training of local troops and rotation of US forces. More fighting vehicles will be “pre-positioned” at US military bases in Germany.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

After the reunification of the Crimean Peninsula with Russia and the civil war in Ukraine, waged between the coup-imposed government in Kiev and rebels in the eastern regions of the country, NATO members say they no longer feel secure.

OpEdNews Article: Article: We Are the Enemy: Is This the Lesson of Ferguson? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Ferguson provided us with an opportunity to engage in a much-needed national dialogue over how police are trained, what authority they are given, what weaponry they are provided, and how they treat those whom they are entrusted with protecting. Caught up in our personal politics, prejudices and class warfare, we have failed to answer that call.
