Crazed Hillary Clinton and the Prospects of World WAR III. Can Americans Overthrow "The Evil" That Rules Them?

Crazed Hillary Clinton and the Prospects of World WAR III. Can Americans Overthrow "The Evil" That Rules Them? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Paul Wolfowitz and the lies that he told in the high government positions that he held are responsible for a massive number of deaths and massive destruction in seven countries. Wolfowitz has announced his vote for Hillary Clinton. Does this make you feel reassured?
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Trump has said that he doesn’t see any future in the conflict Washington has initiated with Russia, and Trump questions the point of NATO’s continuing existence. These peaceful attitudes make Trump into a “national security risk” according to Wolfowitz. What Wolfowitz means is that a peace candidate is a threat to Wolfowitz’s doctrine of US world hegemony. In the crazed mind of Wolfowitz and the neoconservatives, America is not safe unless it rules the world.

International Law, Human Rights, The Fight against Terrorism: Which Country Holds the Legal and Moral High Ground, Canada or Syria?

International Law, Human Rights, The Fight against Terrorism: Which Country Holds the Legal and Moral High Ground, Canada or Syria? | Global politics | Scoop.it
In terms of international law, human rights, the fight against terrorism, and common decency, Syria wins, hands down. Syria, which ranked amongst the top 5 countries globally as a “safe
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Much is made of alleged mistreatment of rebels in Syrian prisons. By contrast, the rebels have no prisons. They murder their captives–beheading, crucifying, stoning, burning or drowning them in steel cages. Rebels post hundreds of videos, depicting mass executions of prisoners and battlefield cannibalism. Many of their victims are women, children, priests and elderly noncombatants. International Law is clear; terrorists who commit such crimes are not entitled to protections under the Geneva Conventions. When terrorists attack civilian targets with suicide-bombs, ravage Syria’s wives and behead their sons, they can hardly expect gentle treatment in response.

The alt-right’s take on Clinton’s speech: Botched, but legitimizing

The alt-right’s take on Clinton’s speech: Botched, but legitimizing | Global politics | Scoop.it
'The Alt Right as a moniker of resistance is here to stay. Hillary just ensured that."
Enrique Ferro's insight:
"What Clinton single-handedly did is give the movement the greatest publicity and legitimacy it’s had in years," wrote VDare's James Kirkpatrick. "She also specifically designated George W. Bush and John McCain as the kind of good loser conservatives she wants Republicans to act like. In other words, she praised them for being the collaborators they are."

The Anthropocene Is Here: Humanity Has Pushed Earth Into a New Epoch

The Anthropocene Is Here: Humanity Has Pushed Earth Into a New Epoch | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Anthropocene Epoch has begun, according to a group of experts assembled at the International Geological Congress in Cape Town, South Africa this week.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Changes to the Earth system that characterize the potential Anthropocene Epoch include marked acceleration to rates of erosion and sedimentation; large-scale chemical perturbations to the cycles of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and other elements; the inception of significant change to global climate and sea level; and biotic changes such as unprecedented levels of species invasions across the Earth. Many of these changes are geologically long-lasting, and some are effectively irreversible.

US Slams Turkish Bombing Of American Coalition Partners As "Unacceptable And A Source Of Deep Concern" | Zero Hedge

US Slams Turkish Bombing Of American Coalition Partners As "Unacceptable And A Source Of Deep Concern" | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
Things are turning increasingly sour for the US, which is barely able to keep track of which feuding factions it supports in the escalating Syrian war.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
So, less than a week after Biden's attempt to appease Erdogan, earlier today the United States, now finding itself in the paradoxical position of directly supporting two warring factions, criticized clashes between Turkish forces and some opposition groups in northern Syria as "unacceptable," calling on all armed actors in the fighting to stand down and focus on battling ISIS.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
A candidate for public office, especially the highest office in the nation is no longer an ordinary private person. They have a responsibility to be open about their true medical condition. So far, Hillary Clinton has refused. Not only is it irresponsible, it is alarming, truly scary. The mainstream liberal USA media is not touching the issues in any serious way. We have a right to access to a complete and unbiased analysis of her health and medical treatment. She is a candidate for US President, the one with the finger on the nuclear button. http://journal-neo.org/2016/08/24/a-brain-damaged-us-president-with-finger-on-the-nuclear-button/

By Sitting Down Kaepernick Challenges Americans to Reflect on What They Really Stand For

By Sitting Down Kaepernick Challenges Americans to Reflect on What They Really Stand For | Global politics | Scoop.it
The tragedy of the anthem is that its music all too commonly drowns out genuine voices for justice. It is a blaring cacophony of American triumph that silences all critical reflection. The tune and the words stir emotions so that those singing it no longer have to hear the cries of its country’s victims.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“The two presidential candidates that we currently have also represent the issue that we have in this country right now. I mean, you have Hillary [Clinton] who’s called black teens or black kids super-predators. You have Donald Trump who’s openly racist. I mean, we have a presidential candidate who’s deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me, because if that was any other person, you’d be in prison. So what is this country really standing for?”

Ousted President Mohamed Morsi's Wife Speaks Out: 'Hillary Clinton Tied To Terrorism'... | Global politics | Scoop.it



Mahmoud went on to say that they were recruited by the Clintons from the
U.S. and began their friendship in the 1980′s. This appears to be a
conspiracy that is being hidden.

When asked if they still have friendships with each other, Mahmoud said
communications never ceased and that the conversations are all recorded.
 The wife of Mursi divulged that Mrs. Clinton seeks the assistance – both
official and unofficial – of several members of the Muslim Sisterhood
organization to help with problems in the Middle East. “We also have
routine business dealings with the Clintons.”

It Takes a Ruling-Class Village to Staff the White House

It Takes a Ruling-Class Village to Staff the White House | Global politics | Scoop.it
A recurrent theme in major speeches given last month at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia held that Democrats like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton look to “we the people” instead of rich, powerful and purportedly great individuals like Donald Trump to guide the United States. Repeating a prominent refrain in Obama’s 2008 campaign, top Democrats said the operative words for Americans aren’t “I” and “me” but rather “we” and “us,” as in “si se puede” (“yes we can”)—a chant repeated during Tim Kaine’s and Obama’s speeches.
