Presenting "Putin's Useful Idiot": Anyone Who Disagrees With The Establishment

Presenting "Putin's Useful Idiot": Anyone Who Disagrees With The Establishment | Global politics | Scoop.it
After Trump doubles down against the neocon agenda, their mainstream media are getting desperate, as Zerohedge explains below.  Now they are taking a page from the German media, who would label anyone who questioned the hostile line against Russia as a "Putinversteher", which means "Putin sympathizer".  Predictably, the strategy backfired, and now the moniker has become something of a joke in Germany.

Hungary’s Prime Minister is Rooting for Trump, Hates Hillary | Global politics | Scoop.it
Because of its geographic position, Hungary is a key player in the European terrorism debacle, and it's leader, Victor Orban, is clearly pro-Trump. He is also a fan of Russia, often speaking out against the relentless neocon Putin demonization of his fellow EU leaders.  He also really dislikes the Clintons, whom he basically accused of being puppets of fellow-Hungarian, George Soros.  From the FT:

Russian FM Lavrov on DNC Hack Charges: "Don't Make Me Use Four-Letter Words" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Secretary of State John Kerry says he raised the email hack of the Democratic National Committee with Russia's top diplomat but stopped short of making any allegation about who might be responsible.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
"U.S. officials have said there is evidence that Russia engineered the release of the emails " Indeed there is always "evidence" but they never show it!

From the Russian Standpoint, Hillary Clinton is a Concentrated Incarnation of Evil

From the Russian Standpoint, Hillary Clinton is a Concentrated Incarnation of Evil | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hillary Clinton is as unique, concentrated an incarnation of modern world evil as can be.An icy corporate hypocrite with a permanent sly smile, insane dances around immigrants, and “religions of peace and kindness”. And exceeding the censorship of political correctness, former victims speak the language of their rulers.

Jill Stein vs. Ben Jealous: Should Progressives Reject Hillary Clinton & Vote Green?

Jill Stein vs. Ben Jealous: Should Progressives Reject Hillary Clinton & Vote Green? | Global politics | Scoop.it
After a tension-filled opening day of the Democratic National Convention that saw Senator Bernie Sanders endorse his former rival Hillary Clinton, we host a debate between Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein and Ben Jealous, former NAACP president and CEO and a Bernie Sanders surrogate.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Hillary Clinton has a track record for doing absolutely horrific things, for expanding wars, in the likes of Libya, for example. There could hardly be an example of a more catastrophic war, which has been more problematic for increasing the terrorist threats. Finger on the nuclear button? I worry very much about the air war that Hillary Clinton would like to start over Syria with this no-fly zone against a nuclear-armed power in the form of Russia.

Why Donald Trump Could Be the Next President of the United States: Alan Minsky

Why Donald Trump Could Be the Next President of the United States: Alan Minsky | Global politics | Scoop.it
The great tragedy of the moment is not rooted in the Republican Party’s self-cannibalization. It’s in a Democratic Party that “successfully” suffocated responsible answers to the crises consuming our world.
- 2016/07/22
Enrique Ferro's insight:
So far Trump has proved to be a big mouth, but Clinton's record marks her as an unscrupulous criminal, warmonger and coup maker, inter alia. Her record involves thousands of victims and soverign states destroyed. She is unrepentant and supported by the neocons she intends to continue her war record even against Russia and China! Voting for Hillary R. Clinton is sheer madness.

Reaction of Elena Isinbaeva, Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist, a Three-Time World Champion and Current World Record Holder

Reaction of Elena Isinbaeva, Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist, a Three-Time World Champion and Current World Record Holder | Global politics | Scoop.it
Reaction of Elena Isinbaeva, two-time Olympic gold medalist (2004 and 2008), a three-time World Champion (2005, 2007 and 2013), the current world record holder.  She has never been implicated in any doping scandal.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Thank you for the funeral of track and field athletics. This is motivated solely by political expediency. All the conclusions are directed at the VAFLA (All-Russia Athletic Federation) and there nothing against the athletes, this is clearly a ‘zakazukha’ (a ‘hit’). We had hope, now we lost it .

Good News! More IOC Members Supported Russia than America | Global politics | Scoop.it
The decision not to keep the Russians out of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro must have cost the IOC President Thomas Bach a couple of years of his life.Many countries are IOC members and apparently they were faced with a difficult choice: either quarrel with the US or with us.It turns out that many more countries are with us. Although the decision is a compromise, it’s clear that the world has changed and the US is not so almighty anymore.

Russia Will Compete at Rio, But Must Work to Purge Politics From Sports

Russia Will Compete at Rio, But Must Work to Purge Politics From Sports | Global politics | Scoop.it
After a series of scandals and humiliating procedures, Russian athletes have finally been allowed to participate in the Olympics. The scandals accompanying the admission are proof that sports is no longer non political, but is, in fact, its instrument.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
It’s not important how these Olympic Games end. They will be the last Olympics of the old world order, jesuitic and politicized. In these Olympic Games, refugee-athletes from countries that have been destroyed by US-bombs will perform under the five interlaced rings of the Olympic flag, a humiliating gratification in comparison to their country’s loss of tranquility under western “democracy”. The Olympics have to die in order to be reborn —beyond politics, geopolitics, villainy, counterfeits and lies.

Who Should Bernie Voters Support Now? Robert Reich vs. Chris Hedges on Tackling the Neoliberal Order

Who Should Bernie Voters Support Now? Robert Reich vs. Chris Hedges on Tackling the Neoliberal Order | Global politics | Scoop.it
The day after Senator Bernie Sanders spoke at the Democratic National Convention and urged his supporters to work to ensure his former rival wins the presidential race, we host a debate between Clinton supporter Robert Reich, who served as labor secretary under President Clinton, and Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who backs Sanders.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Robert Reich disappoints. Does he really think that supporting a crooked warmongering candidate is "progressive"? No, sir, it is more of the same: Wall Street, the MIC, more wars and more coups (started even prematurely in Turkey). The only progressive agenda is Stein's.
