Could Hillary Clinton be Worse Than Trump?

Could Hillary Clinton be Worse Than Trump? | Global politics | Scoop.it
The “Super Tuesday 3” elections went well for the Clinton juggernaut and for Donald Trump. The gods must be angry. Or maybe the explanation is just that corporate media’s malign neglect of the Bernie Sanders campaign is paying off for Hillary. FAIR and other organizations that monitor the press have established beyond a reasonable doubt that The Washington Post and The New York Times might as well be Team Hillary’s Ministry of Propaganda. And, as anyone who can bear to watch MSNBC and CNN can attest, “liberal” cable news outlets are no better. National Public Radio may be the worst of all. Remember that at pledge time!

As for Trump, the cable networks have been working overtime for him too – all publicity, in his case, being good publicity. Let the pundits blame changing demographics and “authoritarian” personality structures all they like, the Trump phenomenon is on their bosses and them.

ClubOrlov: The wrong kind of victory

ClubOrlov: The wrong kind of victory | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
And so that's what we see: a long sequence of unmitigated military disasters. The US has been involved in a long series of military campaigns against very weak adversaries, in which it proved itself capable of destruction, with staggering levels of collateral damage, and some very impressive unintended consequences such as the emergence of ISIS/Daesh/Islamic Caliphate, but not much else.

   The Syria Gambit – Geneva ‘Peace Talks’ and Russia’s “Pullout”  :  Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Given the ‘ceasefire’ the Geneva talks which require friendly faces by the Washington handlers, did Washington make some obfuscated agreements with Turkey, or even blackmailed sultan Recep Erdogan and the Saudis into ‘collaborating’, while the US military and NATO stay quiet for a while? – A make-believe propaganda stunt for the Geneva “Peace Negotiations”?

Enrique Ferro's insight:
What Hillary did by destroying her federal records, her government emails on the private server she kept in her basement, was a federal crime, and she’s dependent upon Obama’s blocking the FBI from pursuing it in order for her to be able to make it all the way to electoral victory in November. Overwhelmingly, her voters are ignorant, misinformed, deceived. They are suckers, the dupes of a practised liar. She is taking advantage of their gullibility. That’s the raw fact. Perhaps they’ll be angry at me for reporting this fact to them; but, it’s the fact nonetheless, and the person they ought to be blaming for it is: Hillary Clinton. Not the messenger: not me. To get angry at the messenger is to choose to remain deceived.

Article: Is There a US-Russia Grand Bargain in Syria?

Article: Is There a US-Russia Grand Bargain in Syria? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Is There a US-Russia Grand Bargain in Syria? - In Syria, Moscow accomplished the outstanding feat of making Team Obama see the light beyond the fog of neo-con-instilled war, leading to a solution involving Syria's chemical arsenal after Obama ensnared himself in his own red line. Obama owes it to Putin and Lavrov, who literally saved him not only from tremendous embarrassment but from yet another massive Middle East quagmire.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Obama invests in proverbial whitewashing, now admitting US intel did not specifically identify the Bashar al-Assad government as responsible for the Ghouta chemical attack. And then there are nuggets, such as Ukraine seen as not a vital interest of the US -- something that clashes head on with the Brzezinski doctrine. Or Saudi Arabia as freeloaders of US foreign policy -- something that provoked a fierce response from former Osama bin Laden pal and Saudi intel supremo Prince Turki.

Этот Новый год я встречал в гостях у своей подруги Кати. У них большая семья: помимо нее, еще семь детей. Катя – самая старшая, а младшим по три года. Живут они в частном доме в пригороде города Карачев, недалеко от Брянска. Они пригласили меня в гости на Новый год. Праздник справили нормально, перового числа мы с Катей прогулялись, мама ее позволила остаться еще на одну ночь. Утром второго января я сидел в прихожей, слушал музыку на телефоне.
