Ronan Farrow Says Rex Tillerson Admitted to Him That He Didn't Actually Know How to Do His Job
AlterNet | alternet.org | 2018-05-16
The former secretary of state was stunningly honest. | Journalist Ronan Farrow's latest book The War on Peace is causing waves for its frank interview segments with individuals who have had positions of power in national diplomacy efforts. During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Farrow discussed the surprisingly open comments from President Donald Trump's shortlived Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. "Tillerson, if he had any logic, knew that he was going to be fired on some level," Farrow said. "Maybe that's why he's so frank in this book. He basically says 'I didn't know what I was doing, I wasn't experienced enough for it. '"Farrow also took shots at the current state of the U. S. State Department, saying that it's "apparent to anyone looking at the State Department" that it has morphed into a catastrophe resembling a "dumpster fire. " Watch the clip below.

NYT's Thomas Friedman Explains How Trump Screwed Up the Israel Embassy Deal: 'They're Laughing at Him&#039
Sarah Burris, Raw Story | alternet.org | 2018-05-16
Our 'Art of the Deal' president made a really bad one. | During a Tuesday conversation with CNN's Anderson Cooper, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman said that President Donald Trump made a terrible deal, essentially giving away the farm, on any chance of Middle East peace. Friedman explained that the Hamas violence and deaths seen in reaction to the embassy moving to Jerusalem were the radical Palestinian response, but he wondered what Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is doing to work with moderate Palestinians to achieve peace. "What have the Israelis been doing with the good Palestinian leadership, [Palestinian President] Mahmoud Abbas," he continued. "Where is the Israeli imaginative, peaceful creation? Neither Hamas or Bibi have any peaceful end on the table right now. It is a tragedy, two bald men fighting over a cone. "Trump had promised peace in the Middle East,. . .

EU Chief Blasts Trump in Push to Save Iran Deal
Staff | truthdig.com | 2018-05-16
SOFIA, Bulgaria–A top European Union official branded President Donald Trump selfish and capricious Wednesday as EU leaders gathered to count the likely economic damage U.S. policies might inflict on the bloc and to try to rescue the Iran nuclear deal. | In a striking rhetorical assault on the leader of Europe's biggest ally, EU Council President Donald Tusk said, given Trump's recent decisions, "someone could even think 'with friends like that, who needs enemies?'" | Trump has bewildered the Europeans by threatening to slap tariffs on EU steel and aluminum exports and reneging on an agreement to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, which the EU believes is vital to world security. Trump has also broken with a key international principle of Middle East peace efforts by moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. | Tusk's remarks, just hours…

Paul Ryan Is Lying to the Public About His Real Position on DREAMers–He's Actually Trying to Deport Them
Gabe Ortiz, Daily Kos | alternet.org | 2018-05-16
The outgoing majority leader's actions clearly demonstrate that he wants them gone. | In January 2017, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan assured a frightened Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient and her young daughter that they had nothing to worry about: "I want you to know that DACA has helped me. Do you think that I should be deported? " the woman asked, standing alongside her daughter. "No," Ryan replied. "First of all, I can see that you love your daughter and you are a nice person who has a great future ahead of you, and I hope your future is here. The young mom does indeed deserve the chance to have a great future, and that future should be here in the only country she's ever known as home. Ryan, on the other hand, was full of shit: Ryan in a closed-door meeting. . .

Ex-White House Staffers Can't Find Jobs After Working For Trump: 'Not Everyone Can Get a Gig at Fox News'

" He never said that's who his staffers would be working for. | Working for the White House is often a career goal for the politically-inclined, the kind of job policy nerds dream about during their high school civics classes. But, as the conservative Washington Examiner reports, working for President Donald Trump's administration might be more of a career-ending move than a strategic undertaking. "During my time there I was thinking: 'Is this experience going to hurt me or help me? '" a former administration aide told the Examiner. "He is a polarizing president. Some people love what he says and some people hate it. "Another person said that staffers who are not considering the impact the Trump name may have on their resumes "are king of stupid.

Making Development Anthropology More Public: A Study of Displacement and Resettlement by the World Bank

Development anthropologists embody a niche existence that is not always easy to navigate.

Malaysia: Release of prisoner of conscience Anwar Ibrahim a momentous day for human rights
amnesty.org | amnesty.org | 2018-05-16
The release of long-time Malaysian opposition leader and Amnesty International prisoner of conscience Anwar Ibrahim is a landmark moment for human rights in the country, the organization said today. | Anwar, who has twice been imprisoned on politically motivated "sodomy" and corruption charges, received a royal pardon following last week's election win for the Pakatan Harapan coalition led by Mahathir Mohamad. Amnesty International has campaigned on Anwar's case for 20 years. | "Anwar should never have been jailed in the first place, and his long overdue release is an important step towards the restoration of justice and human rights in Malaysia after so many years of political persecution by previous governments," said Salil Shetty, Amnesty International's Secretary General. | "This day should go down as a landmark moment for human rights in the country, but the new government must not stop here.

'They See Glory': Trump's Evangelical Base Sees Doomsday Prophecy in Gaza Violence — and They're Thrilled
Jared Yates Sexton, Salon | alternet.org | 2018-05-15
For Trump's most fanatical supporters, this is all part of the struggle against the Antichrist. | As the United States officially moved its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday, clashes in Gaza cast a dark pall over the ceremonies, which featured Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, videotaped remarks from President Donald Trump and a speech by the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner. The violence — which resulted from Israeli forces firing on protesters and has so far cost more than 50 lives and more than 2,700 injuries — was a stark contrast to the pomp and circumstance celebrating what some have called a bold move by President Trump. Others, of course, have criticized it as a needless provocation. Critics of the decision worry it will effectively derail efforts to broker a peace between Israelis and Palestinians, in order to please. . .

American Jews Stand Against the US Embassy Move and Israel's Mass Killing of Protesters in Gaza
JVFP | mintpressnews.com | 2018-05-15
WASHINGTON — As the ceremony to open the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem is taking place, Israeli military forces are killing Palestinian protesters in Gaza. In moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, U.S. President Trump is cementing the U.S. — Israeli partnership to annex Jerusalem and further repress Palestinian rights. | "This is the ongoing Nakba," said Rebecca Vilkomerson, Executive Director of Jewish Voice for Peace. "The celebration of annexation, even as Palestinians — the vast majority of whom are refugees — are being gunned down simply for protesting for their basic rights to live in dignity and freedom, could not illustrate more clearly the continuing catastrophe that Israel is imposing on Palestinians. Still worse, it's doing so with the full collusion of the U.S." | The scenes of celebration at the new embassy, even as Israeli military forces use deadly violence against protesting…
