Round Two: Le Pen Takes on the Clinton Clone

Round Two: Le Pen Takes on the Clinton Clone | Global politics | Scoop.it
It's Trump vs Clinton all over again in France — but can either candidate deliver on their promises?
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Only the terminally naïve may believe Macron incarnates change when he’s the candidate of the EU, NATO, the financial markets, the Clinton-Obama machine, the French establishment, assorted business oligarchs and the top six French media groups.

Roaming Charges: Dude, Where’s My War?

Roaming Charges: Dude, Where’s My War? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Uncharacteristically, Trump didn’t even pause for a selfie beside the smoldering crater left by his MOAB bomb in Afghanistan, before he was rattling his sabre at North Korea, boasting about how his giant Armada was steaming toward the Korean peninsula. A few days later this robust pronouncement was already obsolete, when it turned out that the mighty fleet was instead sailing 3,000 miles in the opposite direction, south to the coast of Australia. Call it the wrong-way Armada.

Trump’s martial pronouncements are generally too truncated and disarticulated to ever embody something so substantial as a trope or a theme. Indeed, many of these public utterances are so garbled that they defy translation by even the most gifted linguists. They are more like the petulant bleats of an overgrown adolescent testing out a rack of video games, blasting away at one zombie invasion after another until he tires of it and seizes on another scenario. It might be said that he practices the Man-Child theory of foreign relations: belligerent, shallow, easily bored.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Gold is being interviewed for a post in the new presidential Administration… “What would I have to do?” “Anything you want, as long as it’s everything we tell you to say and do in support of our policies, whether you agree with them or not. You’ll have complete freedom.” Gold was confused. He said delicately, “I can’t be bought, Ralph.” “We wouldn’t want you if you could be, Bruce,” Ralph responded. “This President doesn’t want yes-men. What we want are independent men of integrity who will agree with all our decisions after we make them.”

Guarimbas 2.0 – murder and terror brought to you by the Empire and the local oligarchy | Investig'Action

Guarimbas 2.0 – murder and terror brought to you by the Empire and the local oligarchy | Investig'Action | Global politics | Scoop.it
The episodes in recent days, featuring the erection of barricades, destruction of public property and widespread violence by opposition groups bring back memories of the 2014 guarimbas. After months of violence, with certain neighbourhoods effectively under siege, and a death toll of 43, the opposition gangs slowly demobilised. But some analysts argue that this time it is different. With the right-wing coming to power in Brazil and Argentina and the permanent hostility of the empire, some international bodies have been neutralised and others, such as the OAS, adopted a plainly interventionist agenda against Venezuela. And as always when it comes to Venezuela, the empire and the local oligarchy make sure that their “war” on the streets is backed by a “war” through the media.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Journalist Brian Williams, who was caught lying about going to Iraq with a Navy Seal team in a helicopter that was hit by a rocket propelled grenade, described the images of the cruise missile launch as “beautiful pictures” live on MSNBC. What he didn’t mention was that the missiles in those “beautiful pictures” killed seven Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers and 7 (or 9) civilians according to reports.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
The time of Syrian war will enter the annals of history as an era when France actively armed and financed terrorists in Syria, thus shedding the blood of innocent people who did not threaten or attack France in any way. Even more - France sought to separate Aleppo from Syria and donate it to Sultan Erdogan, back in the days when he was still best friend and ally, before suddenly becoming an Ottoman dictator.

The Main Issue in the French Presidential Election: National Sovereignty

The Main Issue in the French Presidential Election:  National Sovereignty | Global politics | Scoop.it
The 2017 French Presidential election marks a profound change in European political alignments. There is an ongoing shift from the traditional left-right rivalry to opposition between globalization, in the form of the European Union (EU), and national sovereignty.

Standard media treatment sticks to a simple left-right dualism: “racist” rejection of immigrants is the main issue and that what matters most is to “stop Marine Le Pen!” Going from there to here is like walking through Alice’s looking glass. Almost everything is turned around.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Fillon departs from EU orthodoxy, however, by proposing a more independent foreign policy, notably by ending the “absurd” sanctions against Russian. He is more concerned about the fate of Middle East Christians than about overthrowing Assad.

Russia's Jehovah’s Witnesses Ban Is an Assault on the Dignity of Each and Every Russian

Russia's Jehovah’s Witnesses Ban Is an Assault on the Dignity of Each and Every Russian | Global politics | Scoop.it
About 300 Germans were executed by the Third Reich during WWII because they refused to serve in the armed forces as conscientious objectors. About 250 of them were Jehovah's Witnesses. Now Russia, which lost untold millions to The Reich, has banned their church as an "extremist organization". Are Jehovah's Witnesses extremists? Of course they are. Extremely brave, extremely modest, and extremely persistent.

Emmanuel Macron: An insider disguised as an outsider, wrapped in opportunism

Emmanuel Macron: An insider disguised as an outsider, wrapped in opportunism | Global politics | Scoop.it
Macron is the arch-establishment figure. Statements to the contrary are worse than misleading, they are lies.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
To be specific, he left his government post to work as an investment banker at Rothschild & Cie Banque, a position which has about as much anti-establishment credibility as being Hillary Clinton’s speech writer, the EU President or the Prince of Wales. Odd though it may have been for a Rothschild banker to be a member of the French Socialist Party, it is safe to say that Macron declared himself a proverbial Rothschild socialist in order to further his career.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
As a result of all this Machiavellian metaphysics an almighty tsunami of religion washed over the earth during the 1980s (we’re still drowning in it). God became a weapon of mass destruction. And “He” was aimed at all those who criticised the rich and celebrated the victory of Vietnam. The popes, preachers and prophets were unleashed.

Voting for Trump

Voting for Trump | Global politics | Scoop.it
Now that Trump has already comprehensively betrayed all his campaign promises and his 100 first days in office are marked by nothing else but total chaos, incompetence, betrayals of his closest friends and allies, recklessly dangerous and utterly ineffective grandstanding in foreign policy, there are a lot of people out there who say “I told […]
Enrique Ferro's insight:
What the American voter did is to send two messages urbi et orbi. First to the rest of the planet: Not in our name! We don’t support this regime! And then to the Neocons : we hate you. In fact, we hate you so much that we are willing to even vote for a guy like Trump just because we hate Hillary even more. As to the message to the Ziomedia it was crystal clear: liars! We don’t trust you! Go screw yourselves, we will vote for the man you hate with such a passion precisely because we deny you the right to tell us what to think. Yes, Trump proved to be a fake and a liar himself, but he will also be a one term President as a direct consequence of his betrayals. And it is quite possible that Kushner or Pence will now run the Empire on behalf of his real bosses, but the world will also know that this was not what the American people wanted.

Syria: Missile Strikes, The Terrorists Have Large Quantities of Chemical Weapons | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Following systematic deconstructions in the alternative media, the official account would have come crashing down even without the welcome assistance of Dr. Theodore Postol’s meticulously written refutation.[2] But several days later, while the controversy over the first alleged chemical exposure was still unsettled, as a result of a US bombing raid on rebel targets in the Deirez-Zor area, south of the town of Tabqah, the resulting huge and lethal explosion of chemical materials in terrorist facilities caused the death of several hundred innocent Syrian civilians, including dozens of so far unmourned “beautiful babies.”
