Should the Americans be afraid of Saudi Arabia? Well then , before Obama's eyes, it looks like the Kingdom is the real exceptional nation!

The media loves Hillary — and it could cost her the election

The media loves Hillary — and it could cost her the election | Global politics | Scoop.it
Back when I was a pup in the newspaper business, legendary reporter Peter Kihss gave me lifetime advice about covering politicians. Remember, he said, there are no such things as stupid questions, only stupid answers.

Which brings us to Lester Holt and the accusations that the moderator tipped Monday’s debate in favor of Hillary Clinton. Holt’s bias was obvious, but the impact was not inevitable. It mattered largely because, shockingly, Donald Trump was shocked that Holt was in the tank for Clinton.
Oy, haven’t those poor kids suffered enough?
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The anger has grown more pronounced since Trump, the ultimate outsider, crashed the party to win the nomination. With media bias blatant on a daily basis, it is far more than a sideshow. My inbox routinely contains letters from readers such as Gayla Chandler, who wrote, “So my vote for Trump is partially FOR Trump, but it is equally against both Hillary and media manipulation.”

Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Against Russia

Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Against Russia | Global politics | Scoop.it
George H. W. Bush’s unsurprising support for Hillary Clinton strengthens the alliance of careful, conniving warmongers (including both neocon and “liberal interventionist” camps), admiring former generals, middle and upper-class “Clinton Coalition” African-Americans (including clerics and TV commentators like MSNBC’s awful anchor/DNC shill Joy Reid snarling first about Bernie as much as Trump, and now trashing Putin along with Trump), Wall Street donors, older women too driven by identity politics, masochistic and naive former Bernie supporters settling for “the lesser evil,” and miscellaneous communities of the confused.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
For all his flaws, Trump is the best guarantee against happy-trigger Hillary: either Trump or War.

Amal Clooney Forces NBC to Call ISIS Persecution ‘Genocide’

Amal Clooney Forces NBC to Call ISIS Persecution ‘Genocide’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
NBC is accusing ISIS of genocide – but only after some star power got involved. On Monday, an NBC correspondent attached the term “genocide” to ISIS four times following an exclusive interview with Amal Clooney (married to actor George Clooney). That shouldn’t be a revolutionary move, considering that the United States officially accused ISIS of genocide in March. But it is, according to a recent MRC report on the media’s coverage of ISIS.

US-Turkey Lurch to World War in Syria

US-Turkey Lurch to World War in Syria | Global politics | Scoop.it
Using the pretext of «fighting terrorism» is a risible cover for the fact that Turkish and American military forces are illegally operating on Syrian soil. And as they expand their presence towards the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, what should become apparent is that these two NATO members are involved in an full-on invasion of Syria.

Forget about ISIS or any other terror outfit that Washington and Ankara are publicly claiming to be combatting. Turkish media last year exposed the Erdogan government’s cross-border weapons supply to illegally armed insurgents in Syria. The notoriously «porous» Turk border is porous because that is part of Ankara’s covert war on Syria, in league with Washington and other NATO members, Britain and France, as well as the Wahhabi terror-funding Saudi regime.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Erdogan also hinted that he expected a Clinton presidency to be more gung-ho about escalating military involvement, and in particular implementing no fly zones. Hillary Clinton has already said that she would take a more hostile line towards Syria and Russia, going as far as declaring she would deploy military force to oust President Bashar al-Assad.

'Beholden to AIPAC' -- progressive senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama's actions

'Beholden to AIPAC' -- progressive senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama's actions | Global politics | Scoop.it
Vermont Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders and Kentucky's Rand Paul were among the dozen holdouts from a letter the Israel lobby group AIPAC circulated seeking to limit President Obama's actions to oppose Israeli settlements in his last months in office. Still, many progressive US senators as well as vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine signed on to an Israel lobby letter designed to limit President Obama's actions against the Israeli occupation, now nearly 50 years old.

Although no moviegoers wanted to see the heroes of the Great Escape movie captured and put back in their prison camp, a great many people wish that the Wall Street crooks from Citigroup, Bank of America and other junk-mortgage fraudsters would be sent to jail, along with Angelo Mazilo of Countrywide Financial. Little love is given to their political lobbyists such as Alan Greenspan, Attorney General Eric Holder, Lanny Breuer and their hirees who refused to prosecute financial fraud.

Islam is a religion of peace and war—and it’s not bigotry to acknowledge it

Islam is a religion of peace and war—and it’s not bigotry to acknowledge it | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
In order to defeat radical Islamist terror, we must first normalize our relationship with Islam itself, treating it the way we do Christianity, Judaism or any other religion over the last century. My fellow Muslims must be able to countenance criticism of Islam, from within and without—the theology, the political ideology, everything. Only by approaching the religion’s tenants with a new spirit of inquiry can we ever disentangle the Islamic faith from the Islamism that is a metastasizing threat to human rights around the world.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
As one 55-year-old worker in Charleroi, PA, told the Atlantic: “They think it is the celebrity of Trump. It’s not. They think we’ve all gone mad. We’ve not. Communities like where I live do not need to shutter and die. We lead solid, honest lives, we work hard, we play hard, we pray hard … we love where we are from, and we feel a duty to make sure that it is here for generations.” That Trump supporter, like others cited in the article, is a registered Democrat.

Hillary failed as secretary of state — why would president be any different?

Hillary failed as secretary of state — why would president be any different? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hillary Clinton boasts that her experience traveling to 112 countries as secretary of state qualifies her to be president. Don’t believe it.

Evidence shows she left the State Department in shambles and our nation weaker. Her record at Foggy Bottom disqualifies her to be president.

Clinton tried to weasel out of taking the blame for Benghazi, testifying to Congress that she wasn’t personally involved in embassy security. But emails later revealed that was false.Clinton tried to weasel out of taking the blame for Benghazi, testifying to Congress that she wasn’t personally involved in embassy security.

If the British Empire was built on the playing fields of Eton, United States world hegemony gets its training in Hollywood studios and advertising agencies. Selling your product, or yourself, by looking sincere is a cultivated American art. Current top U.S. leaders are expert practitioners.

In the space of a few days, Samantha Power, John Kerry, and Barack Obama all turned in war-winning performances.

 An Obsolescent Military: Bombing Everything, Gaining Nothing: Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
A GREAT ARTICLE!!!
 Russia is not a defenseless peasant. Europe, usually docile and obedient to America, is unlikely to engage in a shooting war with Moscow for the benefit of Washington. Europeans are aware that Russia borders on Eastern Europe, which borders on Western Europe. For Washington, fighting Russia in the Ukraine would require a huge effort with seaborne logistics and a national mobilization. Serious wars with nuclear powers do not represent the height of judgment.
