Thousands gather in Damascus for funeral of assassinated Syrian cleric (VIDEO) — RT News

Thousands gather in Damascus for funeral of assassinated Syrian cleric (VIDEO) — RT News | Global politics | Scoop.it
Thousands of Syrians have gathered for the funeral of a pro-Assad cleric who was killed in a blast at a mosque earlier this week. Saturday has been declared a day of mourning in the Arab country.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"I swear to the Syrian people that your blood, and that of your grandson and all the martyrs of the homeland, will not be spilled in vain because we will be faithful to your ideas by destroying their extremism and ignorance until we have cleansed the country," Assad said in an official statement.

The slain cleric had been a vocal supporter of the Syrian regime since the days of Assad’s father and predecessor. In a speech earlier this month, al-Bouti said it was “a religious duty to protect the values, the land and the nation” of Syria. He previously referred to Assad's opponents as "scum.”

So the establishment was out to get Bernie Sanders. What about Corbyn? | Global politics | Scoop.it
During his campaign to be leader of the Democratic Party, Bernie Sanders and his supporters frequently raised concerns that the party rigged primaries in favour of Clinton. With the leak of 20,000 Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails this week, those Sanders supporters, once thought of as paranoid conspiracy theorists, are now quite rightly feeling a sense of vindication. As the evidence of high level bias and corruption mounts, it is clear that from the very beginning, many within the DNC establishment were deeply committed to ensuring Clinton was their nominee.

Furious Sanders Supporters, Angry Media, Blistering Chaos Marks First Day Of Democratic Convention | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Sanders will fail. By supporting the warmongering, fracking promoter, Wall Street servant Clinto/Kaine ticket he has reached the lowest measure of self-respect, dignity, and decency. He will be booed, as at the California delegates' breakfast. He has no chance to convince his followers to go to Hillary, because he won them in the first place for their rejection of her. They supported Sanders as a likely barrier to stop Clinton. So now they will have to choose between Stein and Trump. Unless something unexpected happens (like new cables and Hillary forced out, like Debbie).

"Champagne Supernova" - IceCap Asks What Happens When The Bond Bubble Finally Pops | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
Most investors today have no idea what is happening in the bond market today and have exposed themselves to incredible amounts of risk. Because a global crisis in the government bond market has never occurred in our lifetime – advisors, financial planners and big banks continue the tradition of telling their clients that bonds are safer than stocks. As a result, investors remain heavily invested in the bond market and are therefore smack dab in the middle of the riskiest investment they’ll ever see.

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.

The Hunt for Red Trump-tober - Antiwar.com Original

Julian Assange has done it again: exposed the inner workings – and crimes – of our political class, that is. This time his target is Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, whose emails were hacked by a Romanian who calls himself “Guccifer 2.0,” and posted online by WikiLeaks. As revelations tumble out of the …
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The new era certainly has its ominous aspect, but there are also hints of sunshine behind the storm clouds. The Trumpian takeover of the GOP means the exodus of the neoconservatives – the command center of the War Party – and their re-entry into the Democratic foreign policy Establishment. We are already beginning to see this with the defection of such neocon notables as Robert Kagan and Max Boot.

EXCLUSIVE: WikiLeaks' Julian Assange on Releasing DNC Emails That Ousted Debbie Wasserman Schultz

EXCLUSIVE: WikiLeaks' Julian Assange on Releasing DNC Emails That Ousted Debbie Wasserman Schultz | Global politics | Scoop.it
WikiLeaks founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assange joins us from London about their release of nearly 20,000 emails revealing how the Democratic Party favored Hillary Clinton and worked behind the scenes to discredit and defeat Bernie Sanders. This comes as the Democratic National Convention is opening today in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, amid massive party turmoil. The DNC chair, Florida Congressmember Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has resigned following the leak. The emails also reveal a close relationship between mainstream media outlets and the DNC.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
So that’s a very interesting signaling by Hillary Clinton that if you act in a corrupt way that benefits Hillary Clinton, you will be taken care of. Why does she need to put that out? Certainly, it’s not a signal that helps with the public at all. It’s not a signal that helps with unity at the DNC, at the convention. It’s a signal to Hillary Clinton partisans to keep on going on, you’ll be taken care of. But it’s a very destructive signal for a future presidency, because it’s—effectively, it’s expanding the Overton window of corruption. It doesn’t really matter what you do, how you behave; as long as that is going to benefit Hillary Clinton, you’ll be protected.

Functioning ‘mechanical gears’ seen in nature for the first time

Functioning ‘mechanical gears’ seen in nature for the first time | Global politics | Scoop.it
The juvenile Issus - a plant-hopping insect found in gardens across Europe - has hind-leg joints with curved cog-like strips of opposing ‘teeth’ that intermesh, rotating like mechanical gears to synchronise the animal’s legs when it launches into a jump. The finding demonstrates that gear mechanisms previously thought to be solely man-made have an evolutionary precedent. Scientists say this is the “first observation of mechanical gearing in a biological structure”.

The neoconservatives in Washington have replaced nuclear disarmament with a new nuclear arms race. All of the hard work and accomplishments of previous US administrations to ease tensions and to reduce the stockpiles of nuclear weapons has been thrown away by the psychopaths who control the government in Washington. “Today, the danger of some sort of a nuclear catastrophe is greater than it was during the Cold War,” warns former US SecDef William Perry, “and most people are blissfully unaware of this danger.”

A massive fire erupted near a NATO base in western Turkey. Authorities are investigating the fire as a possible act of anti-American sabotage.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
A recent poll shows that only 17% of Turks welcome the United States in the country and with Ankara shifting towards a more nationalistic posture attacks against US installations may become more likely in the wake of the failed coup.
