Article: Yes, Hillary's Server Was Criminal, And The DNC and Obama Could Use it to Totally Subvert Democracy

Article: Yes, Hillary's Server Was Criminal, And The DNC and Obama Could Use it to Totally Subvert Democracy | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Yes, Hillary's Server Was Criminal, And The DNC and Obama Could Use it to Totally Subvert Democracy - Attorney and Hillary supporter Dan Metcalfe has written, for the law blog, LawNewz.com, a particularly credible and persuasive article, Hillary Clinton's Emails Now Might Finally Take Her Down, which suggests a nauseating, yet terrifying possibility. It all hinges on FBI Director Comey doing his job, and, most important, when.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Metcalfe first discusses the legality of Hillary's private server, which we'll get to in a minute, but he then goes on to speculate what the DNC and Obama, through the FBI and the DNC could do, which is enough to make you grind your teeth and puke-- no teasing here, but get your barf bag out-- they'll wait until after the Philly convention to bring charges against Hillary, offer her a deal to go light on her if she drops out, then replace her, with John Kerry or Joe Biden.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Activity considered to be racketeering may include bribery, counterfeiting, money laundering, embezzlement, illegal gambling, kidnapping, murder, drug trafficking, slavery, and a host of other nefarious business practices. James Comey and The FBI will present a recommendation to Loretta Lynch, Attorney General of the Department of Justice, that includes a cogent argument that the Clinton Foundation is an ongoing criminal enterprise engaged in money laundering and soliciting bribes in exchange for political, policy and legislative favors to individuals, corporations and even governments both foreign and domestic.

Imperial Blues: On Whitewashing Dictatorship in the 21st Century

Imperial Blues: On Whitewashing Dictatorship in the 21st Century | Global politics | Scoop.it
It seems as though empires also get the blues from time to time. Sometimes empire, like the rest of us, suffers from a crisis of confidence and needs to find itself, and it looks like our American empire has finally found a more relaxing way of flexing its muscles other than bombing brown people in the Middle East. On Friday the 19th of May MSNBC joyously celebrated the push towards a bipartisan deal to approve a bill that would provide Puerto Rico with much needed debt relief for its economic woes. The title of the article says it all: “Despite some issues, Democrats get behind Puerto Rico bill”. Even Hillary Clinton, the Democrat’s presumptive nominee, came out in favor of the bill: “without any means of addressing this crisis”, Clinton said, “too many Puerto Ricans will continue to suffer”. Clinton expressed that she had some “concerns” regarding the nature of the oversight committee that would rule over the island, but nevertheless she supports the bill. All hail bipartisanship! What a stroke of luck that the Puerto Rican debt crisis has joined both parties in their attempt at providing debt relief! Isn’t there a disarming nature to that? No relief effort could be bad. Itch relief, pain relief… all of these things are great. Yet this bill seems awfully familiar, and that familiarity quickly becomes full recognition after a passing glance at it. Regurgitation, it seems, is an old political ploy, and it is present here in full force. The more things change, right? First it was H.R. 4900, and now it’s H.R. 5278. Indeed, this is a second attempt at passing the beloved “Promesa”.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Clinton is a vector of transmission of this disease. She is against the release of our political prisoner, Oscar López Rivera. She represents the most reactionary conservative elements of her party and is inexcusably tied to the neoliberal agenda of Wall Street. Is it at all surprising that she would support a bill that seeks to impose a neocolonial Congressional dictatorship on Puerto Rico?

It’s not that people are unaware of the fact that the first casualty of war is the truth … there is never a shortage of “leftists” in the West who can be either bought or convinced through incredible naivété, warped political outlook, or Eurocentric arrogance, that the motives of Empire are good.

Lame Duck TPP Push Hands Trump A Powerful Issue Against Clinton

Lame Duck TPP Push Hands Trump A Powerful Issue Against Clinton | Global politics | Scoop.it
More and more the word is getting out that President Obama, along with the giant multinational corporations and Wall Street, will launch a push in Congress to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) during the “lame duck” legislative session following the election.President Obama should put a stop to this talk right now. It hands Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump a powerful issue to use against – and embarrass – Hillary Clinton, should she become the Democratic nominee.TPP In Lame Duck
Enrique Ferro's insight:
This leaves a huge opening for Trump. As President Obama pushes Congress to bring up and pass TPP in the postelection “lame-duck” session, Trump can say that Clinton, should she become the nominee, is “only saying” she is against it “to get votes.” You can just hear him saying, “Look, her President is pushing hard for it and she isn’t telling him not to.”

The State of the Left: Many Movements, Too Many Goals?

The State of the Left: Many Movements, Too Many Goals? | Global politics | Scoop.it
The only way a genuine redistribution of wealth will occur in the United States is when there is a Left broad enough and grand enough to force the hand of the capitalists who run this land. Neoliberal capitalism–capitalism’s latest, most insidious and most pervasive manifestation–is a difficult beast to control and an even greater challenge to defeat. Its ability to invade every aspect of the community and the communal mind means that every single issue-oriented movement, from those against police murder of African-American and other working class youth to issues of gender and sexual equality and identity; from opposition to fossil fuel exploitation of the earth to indigenous rights; from national liberation to imperial war–all of these issues can and have been manipulated by those who would make a buck or gain a neoliberal vote.

Government propaganda and NGO misinformation have coloured the story of the war on Syria from its inception. Stepping in to set the record straight, Dr. Tim Anderson explores the real beginning
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The Dirty War on Syria has relied on a level of mass disinformation not seen in living memory. In seeking ‘regime change’ the big powers sought to hide their hand, using proxy armies of ‘Islamists’, demonising the Syrian Government and constantly accusing it of atrocities. In this way Syrian President Bashar al Assad, a mild-mannered eye doctor, became the new evil in the world.
