Why Some of the Smartest Progressives I Know Will Vote for Trump over Hillary

Why Some of the Smartest Progressives I Know Will Vote for Trump over Hillary | Global politics | Scoop.it
Even on Wall Street, a powerful Sanders contingent so hates what Clinton stands for—the status quo—they’ll pull the lever for almost anyone else.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Their conclusions are the result of careful study of her record and her policy proposals. They believe the country can no longer endure the status quo that Clinton represents—one of crushing inequality, and an economy that is literally killing off the less fortunate—and any change will be better.

Sanders to Clinton: Yes, Trump's Foreign Policy Ideas Are Scary. But So Are Yours | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Gabbard, still on active duty for the U.S. Army and a veteran of the Iraq War, stresses in the ad that her support for Sanders stems from his proven reluctance to put lives at risk in overseas misadventures. "[Sanders] has foresight," she says, "when it comes to making these most critical decisions that affect us all about war or peace."

Erdogan ‘Trying to Outdo Ataturk’: Germany’s Genocide Vote Sends Shockwaves

Erdogan ‘Trying to Outdo Ataturk’: Germany’s Genocide Vote Sends Shockwaves | Global politics | Scoop.it
Germany’s Bundestag passed a resolution to recognize the Armenian Genocide of 1915, at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. In response, Ankara recalled its German ambassador and Turkish President Erdogan threatened to retaliate.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Even though Kemal Ataturk, the person who set up the modern Turkish Republic, was very much opposed to the Ottomans, he detested them, he had this slogan of ‘one nation, one people’ and this lead to the oppression of Kurds and others within Turkey. Languages were suppressed, everyone was supposed to speak Turkish. So the formation of the modern Turkish state is a nationalist creation essentially. So this has everything to do with nationalism and nationalist pride. Erdogan is trying to outdo Ataturk."

Hillary Clinton’s Speech Against Trump Hypocritically Touts Her Foreign Policy Strength

Hillary Clinton’s Speech Against Trump Hypocritically Touts Her Foreign Policy Strength | Global politics | Scoop.it
In a foreign policy speech widely hailed for its sharpest attacks yet against Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton put forward a vision that she contended was a far, far better alternative than the vision Trump has for the United States. However, a number of statements she made hypocritically disregarded her own record as first lady, senator, and secretary of state.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
American Exceptionalism: She wants regime change in Syria. Period. That is her overriding policy in the Middle East, to attack Damascus, force the country into chaos and leave it in ashes and terror from Islamist extremists, like Libya, her very experienced thing done. Ah, and then make good weapon business with the Saudis. And perhaps launch an all-out attack on Iran. And if we go elsewhere, don't forget a chain of coups in Latin America, and a major provocation against Russia, putting in danger the world peace.

WASHINGTON — Former State Department employee Bryan Pagliano, who set up Hillary Clinton’s infamous home ­email server, will refuse to answer questions in an ongoing civil lawsuit and doesn’t want to be videotaped invoking his Fifth Amendment rights, according to court documents obtained by The Post.

“Mr. Pagliano will invoke his right under the Fifth Amendment . . . at the deposition noticed for June, 6, 2016,” Pagliano’s legal motion says.

The deposition was scheduled as part of a suit against the State Department by Judicial Watch, a conservative group seeking access to Clinton’s ­emails.
