Экс-президент Франции Валери Жискар д’Эстен не верит в мирные намерения США на Украине | Global politics | Scoop.it
Бывший президент Франции Валери Жискар д’Эстен приехал в Москву официально в качестве писателя, чтобы представить свою новую книгу, пишут французские СМИ.

Источник в МИД РФ: Москва ввела визовые ограничения исключительно в качестве ответа на действия ЕС | Global politics | Scoop.it
Ограничения на въезд в Россию для представителей некоторых стран ЕС были введены исключительно в качестве ответа на действия Евросоюза, заявил высокопоставленный источник в МИД России. Ранее российский чёрный список, куда вошли фамилии 89 европейских военных и чиновников, был передан в представительство Евросоюза в Москве. Некоторые европейские страны потребовали от России объяснений по поводу состава списка. Однако на Смоленской площади не хотели бы комментировать перечень по персоналиям, сообщ

'If the US hadn’t sponsored him, Saakashvili would be on Washington’s wanted list'

'If the US hadn’t sponsored him, Saakashvili would be on Washington’s wanted list' | Global politics | Scoop.it
Appointing Georgia's ex-president, who is wanted at home for a number of alleged crimes, the governor of Ukraine's Odessa region, is an act of desperation on Poroshenko's part, Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity told RT.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Saakashvili's rule in Georgia was marked by very brutal crackdowns against the political opposition. He seized newspapers. He violently suppressed any sort of political protest. He was a dictator in such way that if he had not been sponsored by the US, he would probably be on the most wanted list in the US.

Fort Russ: "Kiev DiviSSion" blows up Roshen store in Kiev

Fort Russ: "Kiev DiviSSion" blows up Roshen store in Kiev | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The responsibility for the attack was assumed by a right-wing radical organization that goes by the name of Kiev DiviSSion. Who the hell are these clowns, and which rock did they crawl from under?  One possibility (as always, in such cases) is that the rock is the SBU, and that the junta is looking for an excuse to impose martial law (what with the default looming larger every day).

Why is Obama Goading China?
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The whole thing is a joke. Just like Carter’s claim that he’s defending the lofty principal of “freedom of navigation” is a joke. China has never blocked shipping lanes or seized boats sailing in international waters. Never.  The same cannot be said of the United States that just  recently blocked an Iranian ship loaded with humanitarian relief–food, water and critical medical supplies–headed to starving refugees in Yemen. Of course, when the US does it, it’s okay.

The medical-industrial complex Another Big Pharma Scam

The medical-industrial complex Another Big Pharma Scam | Global politics | Scoop.it
Food can heal you - or kill you. Your choice... Resources to help you choose wisely. Videos about food and health, healing with food, the food industry, how to eat a healthier diet, and recipes for health.

This happens over
and over again.

A drug is marketed
on television with
smiling people who
look oh-so-healthy,
but then just a short
time later, lawsuits
emerge and the drug
turns out to be a
dangerous scam.

Here’s one of the
worst cases.

Политолог: Назначение Михаила Саакашвили главой Одесской области необходимо для борьбы с Коломойским | Global politics | Scoop.it
Президент Украины Пётр Порошенко отправился в рабочую поездку в Одесскую область, где объявил о назначении Михаила Саакашвили губернатором Одесской области. О целях и подоплёке возможных кадровых перестановок в интервью RT рассказал украинский политолог Сергей Слабодчук. По его мнению, одной из причин возможного назначения Саакашвили является желание киевских властей избавиться от соратников олигарха Игоря Коломойского.

Германии нужна Россия, считает председатель фракции левых в бундестаге Грегор Гизи. Санкции против Москвы были неверным шагом, отметил он в интервью немецким СМИ. Критического отношения, по мнению Гизи, заслуживают как глава Белого дома Барак Обама, так и российский лидер Владимир Путин, однако достичь мира в Европе можно только при участии России, независимо от того, кто занимает президентское кресло.

‘Game of politics’: FIFA scandal has nothing to do with corruption or sports

‘Game of politics’: FIFA scandal has nothing to do with corruption or sports | Global politics | Scoop.it
The FIFA scandal has nothing to do with sports or corruption, and has turned into a game of politics full of propaganda and demagogy in geopolitical and strategic interests of the US and its allies in the West, geopolitical analyst Eric Draitser, told RT.

​Welcome to McFascism: Over 300 million disenfranchised US voters since 1988

​Welcome to McFascism: Over 300 million disenfranchised US voters since 1988 | Global politics | Scoop.it
How does one describe a political system where just two parties control the game, preventing any third ‘factions’ from participation in the elite franchise? There’s just one ugly word for it, and it’s not democracy.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"The League of Women Voters is withdrawing its sponsorship of the presidential debate scheduled for mid-October because the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter."

Back in the saddle: Defiant Blatter blasts US probe against FIFA

Back in the saddle: Defiant Blatter blasts US probe against FIFA | Global politics | Scoop.it
After winning his fifth term at the helm of FIFA, Sepp Blatter set a defiant tone in his first press conference, blasting the US probe into corruption at football’s world governing body and suggesting there was a US-backed campaign to oust him.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

It is obvious the US and client states are preparing a FIFA maidan in full strength. For the moment they started mobilizing their Avaaz clowns, but they will seek more street mobs, and more judiciary mimes. The US are sort of genious when they want to keep the whole world focus on their scarecrow coups..

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Russia already availed of such benefits in its successful hosting of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, which Western leaders sought then to spoil by boycotting that event over unconvincing human rights concerns.  Russia’s World Cup plans appear to be now similarly targeted for an ulterior political agenda. Within hours of the US-launched arrests of FIFA officials in Zurich, the football federation was obliged to state that the forthcoming World Cup in Russia was not in jeopardy of cancellation over related claims of wrongdoing in the selection of that venue.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Beijing’s strategy for the South China Sea has always been clear. Everyone – no discrimination — will have right of passage. All disputes – from oil and gas exploration to fishing rights — are to be solved bilaterally within the cadre of ASEAN. And the whole process has absolutely nothing to do with Washington.

The U.S. government insists the China nine-dash-line does not comply with international law. That’s risible; the line was actually dreamed up by the Chinese nationalists of the Kuomintang two years before the birth of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.
