Crazy horse! Chechen leader asks Germany to say sorry to his nags | Global politics | Scoop.it
The head of the Chechen Republic has ironically called the refusal to pay prize money to his horses “a disgraceful page in Germany’s history” and added that German authorities will have to pay “multi-million compensation” over the scandal.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“It turns out that Zazu is to blame for all the troubles that take place in the World – it was this horse who had made the decision to start wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, the decision to bomb Belgrade.”

OpEdNews Article: Article: Do the Trans-Siberian shuffle | Global politics | Scoop.it

OpEdNews Article: Article: Baba Beijing sez: we don't need no stinkin' Western democrassy! | Global politics | Scoop.it
Xi Jinping, the President of China, is not only showing his people a better way to the future with the Chinese Dream, but for the rest of humanity as well.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Xi is also taking his message of a new pathway to the four corners of the Earth, along with Premier Li Keqiang. Both have been pressing the flesh on every inhabited continent, talking about the Asian Century, several Eurasian Silk Roads, a String of Pearls, while signing hundreds of billions in trade and commerce deals. The intent is clear: after 500 years of Euroamerican colonialism and exploitation of 85% of humanity's citizens, the 21st century will be very different, and China will help lead to make our coexistence more peaceful, more equal and more multipolar.

The people we elect aren't the ones calling the shots, says Tufts University's Michael Glennon.

Though it's a bedrock American principle that citizens can steer their own government by electing new officials, Glennon suggests that in practice, much of our government no longer works that way. In a new book, "National Security and Double Government," he catalogs the ways that the defense and national security apparatus is effectively self-governing, with virtually no accountability, transparency,
