Western Journalists Hands Down Recognize Putin [SATIRE] - The Duran

Western Journalists Hands Down Recognize Putin [SATIRE] - The Duran | Global politics | Scoop.it
94% of journalists polled agreed that Putin is the subject western audiences cannot get enough of.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
In a rare admission one journalist with some knowledge of Russia responded, “When Obama leaves office he will be quickly forgotten – like he never happened, maybe his legacy will be transgender toilet reform in the country’s elementary schools, but Putin is another matter. Speaking as a journalist, I hope he stays around – that guy is story to be told.” He added, “I demonize Putin, yeah I do! It pays my bills! I have obligations, you know. We all have to make a living.”

Article: The New York Times's (and Clinton Campaign's) Abject Cowardice on Israel

Article: The New York Times's (and Clinton Campaign's) Abject Cowardice on Israel | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: The New York Times's (and Clinton Campaign's) Abject Cowardice on Israel - Essentially the entire world recognizes the reality of Israeli occupation with the exception of a tiny sliver of extremists in Israel and the U.S. That's why Chris Christie had to grovel in apology to GOP billionaire and Israel-devoted fanatic Sheldon Adelson when the New Jersey Governor neutrally described having seen the 'occupied territories' during a trip he took to Israel.

Is There Hunger in Venezuela?

Is There Hunger in Venezuela? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Venezuela's opposition says the country is facing a humanitarian crisis due to lack of food. This view has been echoed in the international media; the picture painted is one of economic collapse, with shortages leading to widespread hunger and grave risks to the population's health. Its majority in parliament called on international bodies like the Food and Agriculture Organization and UNICEF to intervene.

So is it true? teleSUR's correspondent in Caracas, Iain Bruce, tries to get to the bottom of the question.

Read the previous part in this series: Venezuelan Women on the Sharp End of Shortages
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Sometimes the whole family turned up, each buying as many as they could carry. This has now turned into the elaborate industry of bachaqueo, where people buy basic products at very low, controlled prices, then resell them at very many times that price. Queuing has become their profession.

Article: Should Clinton Withdraw her Candidacy?

Article: Should Clinton Withdraw her Candidacy? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Should Clinton Withdraw her Candidacy? - 'Those damn emails' are damning Hillary more and more. This article quotes several sources, including right-wing blogs,about the investigation and possible consequences, and suggests she withdraw from the presidential race.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
My take is that she will drop out of the race, whether by persuasion in exchange for forgetfulness, or by indictment, and later pardoned by Obama. She will avoid prison, but it will signal the fall of the House Clinton, as their notorious Foundation will be branded as a highly corrupted scheme.

Article: "Woopsy Daisy" Not This Time!

Article: "Woopsy Daisy" Not This Time! | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: 'Woopsy Daisy' Not This Time! - It appears some people actually are above the law. Or, as Bill the Butcher might say, 'woopsy daisy!'
Enrique Ferro's insight:
 You've been following the dazzling display of corporate power in muted disbelief, having already been marginalized by a rigged voting system. You campaigned tirelessly to help a true progressive win the Democratic nomination, but now, with the DNC's corporate stooges -- that is, superdelegates -- poised to appoint a candidate who is to the right of Ted Cruz on matters of war, you're not even sure you'll vote. The entire process is corrupt. You have no voice. And you know you have no voice. It's been documented.

Article: Did Black Lives in Africa and Haiti Matter to the Clintons?

Article: Did Black Lives in Africa and Haiti Matter to the Clintons? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Did Black Lives in Africa and Haiti Matter to the Clintons? - Describes hidden role of the Clinton administration in the Rwandan genocide and subsequent wars in central Africa to control mineral resources, and suspicions of corruption following the Haiti earthquake by Hillary's State Dept and the Clinton Foundation. Emerging revelations from Hillary's emails and other evidence would make her exceptionally vulnerable to effective GOP attack as the Democratic nominee.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Trump has exploited the hedonism, self-indulgence and wishful fantasies of stress-escapist citizens to acquire great wealth. The Clintons have pursued power and self-enrichment through exploiting citizen fear and racism, leaving massive death and destruction in their wake. Why, inquiring minds should ask, has there been such abundant press attention to Trump's loud mouth, obsessive narcissism and White colonial racist declarations, and so little to Clinton's narcissistic grandiosity and destructive abuses of state power demonstrating White colonial racism in action?

Article: Clinton campaign in crisis over email controversy, declining poll numbers

Article: Clinton campaign in crisis over email controversy, declining poll numbers - The presidential campaign of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hit by twin blows this week: a harshly critical report by the State Department inspector general over her use of a private email server while in office, and polls showing that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders had closed the gap in California, the most populous US state and one of six holding primaries or caucuses on June 7.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
While Clinton has offered evasive and contradictory accounts for her reasons for using a private email server, the real motive is clear: to retain control over email traffic and avoid having it subject to the federal Freedom of Information Act. This became particularly critical as Bill and Hillary Clinton cashed in on his presidency -- and her future political prospects -- amassing a $150 million fortune by trading on their contacts with Wall Street and corporate America more generally.
