with Abby Martin

teleSUR English on Jul 29, 2016

Abby Martin sits down with the President of Ecuador to talk about different issues impacting the country and region. One of the more important questions Abby has for the president is finding out how he feels about devastating damage that oil giant Chevron caused in the Amazon rainforest. The president also talks about how tax havens are affecting developing economies and, how giving me the environment legal rights is important.

  6. Judith L. Osterman

    I was shocked that he didn’t know how evil HilLiary, Bull, & Obomber are. Honduras? Libya? Iraq, etc.,etc.,etc..

    • I agree with you Judith. It is hard to comprehend. My instinct is that he is being both genuine and dissembling.

      On the one hand, possibly sufficiently old fashioned and naive to behave as a proper gentleman should, when referring to the ‘other sex.’ Perhaps either unwilling to accept less flattering characterizations of her character, or frankly uninformed.

      While on the other hand, he may subtly be hedging his country’s bets, knowing full well that candid interview might eventually find its way into some White House intelligence portfolio at some future juncture ~ a not unlikely contingency. So, he may simply be exercising both courtesy and diplomatic discretion. Clearly he is not a stupid man!

      I’ll wager he has never met Jill Stein. Of course, we should be minded that he must be aware of all the Wikileaks data. So I suspect there are several cautious bluffs being meticulously played out here.

  7. THE UNITED STATES WITH FULL PROOF, IS NO LONGER IN A POSITION TO DECIDE THE BEST POLICIES TO SUITE THE AMERICAN GENERAL PUBLIC.
    RESISTANCE BY ZIONISTS PLAYS A MAJOR PART TO A BACK TO SANITY USA. NOT MUCH HOPE FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.

  8. Golden words from an enlightened human.

    We are duty bound to demand morality from our elected representatives, and never accept duplicity in government.

    In my opinion the greatest ethical obligation, now rests with the academic & professional institutions of the USA.

    It is their clear responsibility to fully account for, justify and explain, their muted complicity in acquiescing to such heinous criminality in high places; by permitting insalubrious influence to corrupt scholarship.

    For through the power of financial institutions, intelligence and corporate interests, and by accepting the patronage of established foundations, the boards that govern these intellectually empowered institutions, are allowing these patrons to dictate and determine academic discourse, covertly, through their generous endowments; to initiate and subtly control intellectual agendas and direct pedagogical curricula; & to restrict the empirical impartiality of research programs throughout the world.

    In plain language, by conspiring to undermine the rule of law internationally, they must answer to the most grievous accusations. Not only should such conduct of omission &/or commission be an indictable felony, but it should be subject to the most grave consequences ~ namely full exposure, expulsions, fines, professional sanctions and criminal prosecutions.
