Egyptian security forces thwart Al-Qaeda embassy bombing – interior ministry — RT News

Egyptian security forces thwart Al-Qaeda embassy bombing – interior ministry — RT News | Global politics | Scoop.it
Egypt’s security forces have foiled an “imminent” attack on a foreign embassy plotted by an Al-Qaeda cell, according to Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The minister told journalists at a Cairo press conference that the radical Islamists had been in contact with Al-Qaeda in Algeria, Pakistan and on the Syrian-Turkish border, where their contact is monitoring the inflow of jihadists into the war-torn country. Ibrahim claimed one of the suspects also traveled to combat training camps in Iran and Pakistan.

Article: Whistleblower Kiriakou: POTUS Race--The Criminal vs. The Lunatic | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Whistleblower Kiriakou: POTUS Race--The Criminal vs. The Lunatic - For the first time in my life, I fear for the country. The two major parties are represented by a lunatic and a criminal. What I fear most is that both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will continue the Obama Administration's war against transparency and whistleblowers. Government secrets will remain secret, even when they violate the law. That won't change, at least in the next four years.

Western Hysterics As Its Criminal War In Syria Unravels

Western Hysterics As Its Criminal War In Syria Unravels | Global politics | Scoop.it
Like a noxious substance hitting the proverbial fan, the mess is being revealed. , Aleppo, an Maria Zakharova, Bashar al-Assad, ceasefire, Syria, Syrian Rebels,
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Why, none other than anonymous “activists” and groups like the so-called White Helmets who are propaganda conduits for Al Qaeda terror groups that dominate the militants. Western governments and mass media have degenerated into nothing more than broadcasters for terrorist groups, whom they euphemistically refer to as “moderate rebels”. And it is these terror groups like Jaysh al Fatah and Jabhat al Fatah al Sham (formerly al-Nusra Front) that are holding some 250,000 civilians hostage as human shields in the eastern quarter of Aleppo. If Syria’s President Bashar al Assad was such a villain, why are six times that population – 1.5 million – living willingly in the government-held western side of the city?

Why Progressives Must Leave The Democratic Party | Black Agenda Report

Why Progressives Must Leave The Democratic Party | Black Agenda Report | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hillary Clinton and her party are bad medicine, dispensed in incrementally fatal doses. The Democratic-leaning public seeks a cure for what ills society, but gets poison, instead. “No sane progressive should associate themselves with a political party that often and dramatically alters their demands to the point where they become indistinguishable from the Republicans.”
Enrique Ferro's insight:
But unlike the manual syringe which allows progressives full control of what is given to the state body, the Democratic Party operates like a syringe with artificial intelligence, sometimes administering the proper dosage, sometimes altering the dosage, sometimes altering the substance altogether and sometimes converting the political medicine into poison.

Why America Deserves Donald Trump as President | Black Agenda Report

Why America Deserves Donald Trump as President | Black Agenda Report | Global politics | Scoop.it
Such politics have been effectively used to motivate all the “oppressed” lumpen of this nation to cheerlead as their Black, female, gay, and transgender comprador brothers and sisters of American empire drop bombs on Syrian children and protect police for snuffing out the lives of unarmed Black motorists. At least a President Trump would disabuse us of the ridiculous notion that America has made progress because Barack Obama has droned more nations than George W. Bush, all in the name of Martin Luther King’s Dream.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Hillary Clinton would be a much more cruel mercenary since her estrogen-driven lust to weld the phallically insecure tools that have promoted this demonic White male fantasy of an empire are so cravenly manifested as blood can almost be seen dripping from her lips as she cheers for more war and corporate greed while the sheep scream “I’m with her.”

Memo for Armchair Strategists: Four Key Factors for Election Day

Memo for Armchair Strategists: Four Key Factors for Election Day | Global politics | Scoop.it
Two months to elections and counting. Americans will be voting for the entire House, a third of the Senate and the President, as well as all members of state legislative lower houses and usually half of their state senators.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The system indeed is rigged, but that doesn’t make elections impossible to win. The key is turnout. One part of the strategy for Democrats is to overturn state laws that suppress turnout. For Democrats winning the Presidency and winning back the Senate will require a massive get-out-the-vote effort, especially targeting the young and Hispanics. A massive effort would be insufficient to take back control of the House but it could make the margin much, much closer. For Republicans, a low turnout guarantees the status quo in Congress and could gain them the Presidency.

US Outcry over Syria... Tears Followed By NATO Bombs

US Outcry over Syria... Tears Followed By NATO Bombs | Global politics | Scoop.it
The crescendo of US-led condemnations against Syria and Russia over alleged humanitarian crimes in Syria grows louder by the day. The eerie sense is that this «outcry» is being orchestrated as a prelude to a NATO-style intervention in Syria.... NATO. Syria. Strategic Culture Foundation
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Such a NATO maneuver would follow the template for former Yugoslavia and Libya, leading to greater civilian deaths, territorial disintegration, a surge in regional terrorism and more international lawlessness by Western states.

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.

It’s also worth pointing out that, at the time, Trump was a private citizen whereas Hillary Clinton was a U.S. Senator who voted for the Iraq war. So why is the media focused so much on Trump?
Easy: they’re biased against him.

Trump, Clinton and the Illusion of Everlasting US Hegemony

Trump, Clinton and the Illusion of Everlasting US Hegemony | Global politics | Scoop.it
In the end, for both candidates Monday night, the debate over these international institutions was over how much they benefit the US, not the broader world. Granted, the UN is not a model institution, and begs drastic reforms, while NATO begs abolishment. Still, it was not the actions of these institutions that was up for debate so much as the idea of them: Global alliances of governments interacting as partners do not suit the hyper-masculine, empathy-deficient worldview of Donald Trump. And for Hillary Clinton, the justification for both institutions is based on their willingness to be partners in a larger US agenda. The world is not involved in the matter.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
While Trump invokes the decline without totally naming it, Clinton ignores or denies it. Why? Because her entire policy set is designed specifically to maintain the illusion of US supremacy. It's a macro-political version of what '60s New Left activist Rennie Davis called "organizing with mirrors," attempting to create a reality by convincing enough people that it already exists.

The UN’s Next Genocide in Somalia | Black Agenda Report

The UN’s Next Genocide in Somalia | Black Agenda Report | Global politics | Scoop.it

The United Nations, acting as a foreign policy arm of the U.S., allowed a quarter million Somali children to starve to death in 2011. Another drought, and continued occupation and war, now endangers the lives of hundreds thousands more kids. “The UN is responsible for feeding the internally displaced persons its war against the Somali people has been creating for a decade now, and simply fails to do so.”
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The reason so many Somali children are starving to death is triggered by the latest climate disaster in the form of the El Nino drought. But the fact that Somalia itself, this meaning from the former capital Mogadishu south to the Kenyan border, is in a state of foreign occupation and war is exacerbating the situation.
