Enrique Ferro's insight:
Nothing could ever have been transformational about Clinton, a veteran political apparatchik who has a record sufficiently tarnished to warrant barring. Her husband, on the other hand, managed to shape the United States in a manner few Republicans could have, giving it a true Tory savaging if ever there was one.

Article: Memorializing the Horrors of War with 10 Must-See War Films - President Obama is paying lip service to the victims of America's nuclear carnage, all the while continuing to feed the war machine.

Article: How the DLC Democrats Helped to Make Donald Trump Presidential Candidate | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: How the DLC Democrats Helped to Make Donald Trump Presidential Candidate - since the Democrats did nothing to expose them for what they were and are, it is all too easy for Trump to just put all the hate, fear, xenophobia, and prejudice, right out here on the (campaign) stump, for everyone to see. In other words, the Democrats helped clear the way for Trump not only by not fighting the Republicans on the issues-of-prejudice from the beginning, but in certain sectors, facilitating them.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
In 2012, Ove Bring, Swedish professor emeritus of international law, stated in a radio interview that the matter was basic: no prosecutor wants to be shown up as a fool, and the issue of not going through it was a matter of prestige for both the team and the Swedish legal system. Besides, if the interview was ever to take place, nothing would transpire, as “the evidence is not enough to charge him with a crime.” Ny persists in this charade, pulling out all ceremonial stops to give the impression something is credibly present.
