M of A - Distracted Media Fails To Catch Trump Policy Decisions

Enrique Ferro's insight:
The new Trump administration was quite happy about this diversion of attention. It additionally lampooned the media when its new spokesperson condemned the press for not being able to count at all. More lines of bullshit analysis were written about that insult. Just like during the election campaign the media fell for the cheap stunt and thereby missed the serious processes and the decisions that were taking place behind the curtains.

Apparently only self-hating Whites avoid to be called racist. But if they denounce, say, the 12-century old or longer slavism practiced by Arabs and Muslims (no trace because males were immediately castrated), then be sure of it, they will be labelled racist, of course!

Syria Regime Changers Are Repackaging Their Plans to Sell Them to Trump

Syria Regime Changers Are Repackaging Their Plans to Sell Them to Trump | Global politics | Scoop.it
A new coalition of US-based organisations is pushing for a more aggressive US intervention against the Assad regime. But both the war in Syria and politics in the United States have shifted dramatically against this objective.When it was formed last July, the coalition hoped that a Hillary Clinton administration would pick up its proposals for a more forward stance in support of the anti-Assad armed groups. But with Donald Trump in office instead, the supporters of a US war in Syria now have little or no chance of selling the idea.

SCOOP: Canada's New Foreign Minister Lying About Family's Ukrainian Nazi Past

SCOOP: Canada's New Foreign Minister Lying About Family's Ukrainian Nazi Past | Global politics | Scoop.it
Chrystia Freeland (lead image), appointed last week to be the new Canadian Foreign Minister, claims that her maternal family were the Ukrainian victims of Russian persecution, who fled their home in 1939, after Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin agreed on a non-aggression pact and the division of Poland between Germany and the Soviet Union. She claims her mother was born in a camp for refugees  before finding safe haven in Alberta, Canada.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“Most crucially of all Obama refers to ‘The DNC emails that were leaked.’ Note ‘leaked’ and not ‘hacked.’ I have been repeating that this was a leak, not a hack, until I am blue in the face. William Binney, former Technical Director of the NSA, has asserted that were it a hack the NSA would be able to give the precise details down to the second it occurred, and it is plain from the reports released they have no such information. Yet the media has persisted with this nonsense ‘Russian hacking’ story.” So I suppose we should thank Barack Obama for dispelling at least some of the obfuscation for which he is so rhetorically eloquent, while our lame “mainstream” media take steno and regurgitate ad nauseam.

Moldova Switches Sides, President Proclaims New Alliance with Moscow (VIDEO)

Moldova Switches Sides, President Proclaims New Alliance with Moscow (VIDEO) | Global politics | Scoop.it
Let's call this Vicky Nuland's slap in the face on her way out the door. Washington's trans-atlantic empire suffered a blow this week when Moldova's newly elected president, Igor Dodon, announced his country's re-alignment toward Russia in a joint press conference held with Vladimir Putin in Moscow.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
What a sad day this must be for the neocons, the transatlanticists, the globalists, the Victoria Nulands and George Soroses of the world. While they can't have spent nearly as much money in Moldova as they did brainwashing and overthrowing Ukraine ($5 billion according to Vicky), they have surely invested a lot in attempting to pull Moldova into Washington's Euro-Atlantic sphere.

  Three days in and Trump has already kept one pledge : Information Clearing House - ICH

  Three days in and Trump has already kept one pledge : Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Trump and his advisors regard the Pacific and Atlantic partnerships as trade deals like NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement that sent American jobs to Mexico at the expense of Americans. However, the most strategic part of these agreements is that they make global corporations immune from the laws of the countries in which they do business if those laws adversely impact the profits of the global corporations. Who decides the question? Not the courts of the countries or a world court. The question is decided by a corporate tribunal staffed only by corporations. In other words, the sovereign laws of sovereign countries, such as France’s laws against GMOs, are subject to damage suits decided by corporate tribunals, which means the end of the legal sovereignty of countries.

  US Drone Killing Machine Now on Autopilot : Information Clearing House - ICH

  US Drone Killing Machine Now on Autopilot : Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
It all sounds so slick and, well, Obama cool. The problem is that any sober consideration of Obama’s foreign policy over the course of his eight years as president reveals that the reality is altogether different. Judging by the murder and mayhem being perpetrated all across the Middle East, “smart war” was not so smart after all. It’s not easy to tease out how much of the mess in the Middle East is specifically due to Obama’s accelerated use of lethal drones in “signature strikes” to kill thousands of military-age men in seven different lands. For he also implemented other, equally dubious initiatives. Planks of Obama’s bloody “smart power” approach included deposing Libya’s dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, and massively arming (from 2012 to 2013) a group of little-understood “appropriately vetted moderate rebels” in Syria. Adding fuel to the fire, Obama oversaw the largest exportation of homicidal weapons to the Middle East ever undertaken by a single US president. Saudi Arabia wasted no time in using its US (and also UK) military provisions to lay Yemen to waste. Conjoined with Obama’s use of drones in that land, the result has been a horrific civil war in which many civilians have been killed and many civilian structures destroyed.

Trump wrestles control from Trilateral elite
Enrique Ferro's insight:
In fact, former President Obama quietly removed an anti-slavery provision from the TPP which would have otherwise prevented countries that engage in slavery, such as Malaysia, from taking part in major trade deals with the U.S. Obama’s pro-slavery stance actually makes sense because the TPP wasn’t really a trade deal at all but rather an enabling act to allow transnational corporations to dump American workers and erode U.S. economic independence.

Did Obama Slip & Tell the Truth? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Oops.  Did President Barack Obama acknowledge that the extraordinary propaganda campaign to blame Russia for helping President-elect Donald Trump become president has more holes in it than a sieve?Eloquent obfuscation has been the name of the game, but inadvertent admissions are dispelling some of the clouds.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“Most crucially of all Obama refers to ‘The DNC emails that were leaked.’ Note ‘leaked’ and not ‘hacked.’ I have been repeating that this was a leak, not a hack, until I am blue in the face. William Binney, former Technical Director of the NSA, has asserted that were it a hack the NSA would be able to give the precise details down to the second it occurred, and it is plain from the reports released they have no such information.

Russia Masterfully Trolls Lithuania: You Want to Build a Wall? We'll Pay for It! | Global politics | Scoop.it
Great idea!
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Another crackpot Lithuanian politician (are they running a competition with Ukraine or something?), Rasa Juknevičienė, said the following about the wall/fence: “This fence will not stop tanks or other military equipment, but it will show that we are hoping for better relations with Russia, a realistic assessment of the situation. We do our best to reduce a potential threat posed by Russia,” she said. In other words, this wall will do absolutely nothing at all to deter any potential attack by Russia, or serve any military defense purpose whatsoever, but we're going to flush €3.6 million of Lithiuanian and EU taxpayers' money down the toilet on it anyway, because Putin.
