What Hillary Clinton said behind closed doors

What Hillary Clinton said behind closed doors | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hillary Clinton gave speeches based on her experience as a public servant. If she wants to be president, she has an obligation to share what she said.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
She has refused calls to release speech transcripts because, she has said, other candidates haven't done so — although it appears there is no other candidate who has pocketed financiers' money for palaver as aggressively as she has.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Some 25-30 percent of Sanders backers, according to pollsters, have made it clear that they will not support Clinton no matter what — including if Sanders were to endorse her. That in itself could be enough to doom her candidacy.

The Democrats Are Flawlessly Executing a 10-Point Plan to Lose the 2016 Presidential Election | Global politics | Scoop.it

Enrique Ferro's insight:
In 2016, Clinton’s favorability-unfavorability rating has been checked by pollsters twenty times. Clinton’s hasn’t been viewed favorably by a majority of respondents even once. More than that, her negative score has been in double-digits 85 percent of the time (and one of the three times it wasn’t, it was -9).

What is the Democratic Party Good For? Absolutely Nothing

What is the Democratic Party Good For? Absolutely Nothing | Global politics | Scoop.it
Think of Republicans and despair for the human race. Even the ones who otherwise seem morally and intellectually sound champion political views straight out of Morons R’Us. However, Democrats are worse — not morally or intellectually, of course; and neither are their views worse. But within the matrix of our semi-established two party system, Democrats do the most harm.

The Democratic Party is, by default, the political voice of organized labor and of social movements that fight for racial and gender equality, environmental sanity, and other worthy causes. Democrats can therefore do what Republicans cannot: integrate the victims of the status quo into a political consensus that serves and protects those who benefit most from it – the “one percent,” the “billionaire class.” They are good at this.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
"Even more than was the case under Obama, we should be grateful that she will seldom get her way: being clueless and inept, she has a knack for making everything she works on worse." Grateful? She leaves behind a trail of ruins and blood, and she lacks the conscience and compassion to look at the mirror.

Imperialists Hated Donald Trump's Foreign Policy Speech

Imperialists Hated Donald Trump's Foreign Policy Speech | Global politics | Scoop.it
“My foreign policy will always put the interests of Ukrainian people and Ukrainian security above all else. That will be the foundation of every single decision I will make. ‘Ukraine first’ will be the major and overriding theme of my administration."
Enrique Ferro's insight:
I'm neither a registered Republican, nor a Trump supporter. I did not vote for him in my state's primary, either. But as I listened to his speech today - having spent the better part of 15 years poring over US foreign policy and writing hundreds of articles about it at Antiwar.com, here and elsewhere - it struck me that Trump has just made an argument that the Trans-Atlantic Empire has eaten the American Republic alive, and that if there is any hope of saving the latter, the former must be relegated to the dustbin of history.
