The Global Effort to Flatter #Ivanka

source: http://www.newyorker.com/news/amy-davidson/the-global-effort-to-flatter-ivanka
In a few hours, it became clear that it was neither of those—because “Ivanka Trump’s new fund” was a complete misnomer. This would be a World Bank project, as spokesmen for the White House and the bank emphasized. Trump would not be involved in raising money, managing it, or deciding how it would be spent. But the World Bank wanted everyone to know that it was very, very grateful to Ivanka for promoting the fund, or “facility,” as it would be called. It was kind of her idea.

Western political elites have forgotten the average people

The dilemma, however, was that deep economic ­integration could not take place without significant social and political integration and institutional harmonisation at the same time. Europe tried to evade this dilemma by progressing on the economic integration side, but moving very slowly on the political integration side. This brought Europe to its ­current impasse.

Is Right-Wing Populism Really Surging?

How I Feel As a #Native Woman When #Trump Idolizes Andrew #Jackson

source: http://www.teenvogue.com/story/andrew-jackson-native-woman-idolize-donald-trump
Prior to his presidency, Jackson had been deeply involved in battles with southeastern tribes. From 1813 to 1814 he led troops against the Creek Nation in the Creek War, and in 1818 he waged campaigns against the Seminole in Florida. In these battles, he and his men wiped out entire villages, physically slaughtering Native men, women, and children, and gained millions of acres of Native lands for the U.S. through treaties signed, often under duress, afterward. He used this #military experience to gain political trust and influence, and vowed that once elected president he would begin the process of moving Native peoples west — freeing land for the development by and use of white settlers.

#Justice being taken away, then, what are kingdoms but great robberies? For what are robberies themselves, but little kingdoms?

Are they still on the right side of the #law?

The U.S. now want to accuse #Assage after seven years:

After causing such a monstrous disaster, however, it took a long time to establish an offense.

I summarize the situation:

A non-American published information outside the U.S. that proves a #war #crime of U.S. #military, which is covered by the #freedom of the #press. He is being prosecuted for it after U.S. law. According to the same logic, Majesty's harassment of the Saudi King must also be prosecuted worldwide.

From #Drone Strikes to #MOAB: The Strategically Silenced

US foreign #policy consists of trading bodies for approval ratings, guilt for innocence, absence for life, and strategic silencing, all for fear of a threat both feigned and self-made.

#CEU embodies everything #Orbán is against

source: http://index.hu/belfold/2017/04/12/ceu_embodies_everything_orban_is_against/
Regardless of the government’s various talking points concerning its reasons for cracking down on CEU, the real question here is why Viktor Orbán decided to attack the #university right now. There are very few people who have insight into the Prime Minister’s thought-process, but even then, they can only discuss it as outsiders because they are neither fans nor employees of the Prime Minister. We sat down to talk about this with sociologist István Hegedűs, Orbán’s former man-at-arms.

The west used colonies as laboratories for #weapons. It's not different today

source: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/14/military-weapons-history-the-west-bombs
#Churchill, who in 1919 had penned a memo stating that he was “strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes”, even pushed Air Marshal Trenchard in 1920 to “proceed with the experimental work on gas bombs, especially mustard gas, which would inflict punishment upon recalcitrant natives without inflicting grave injury upon them”. Historians now believe there wasn’t enough mustard gas to go around, so large-scale conventional bombing was left to achieve Britain’s desired result in Iraq.

#CIA: #Wikileaks is a hostile #intelligence service.

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service and has encouraged its followers to find jobs at the CIA in order to obtain intelligence. It directed Chelsea #Manning in her theft of specific #secret #information. And it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations. It’s time to call our WikiLeaks for what it really is, a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like #

:-) Very true!

On the small inland freight ship (Kastje) I used to sail on in the beginning of the '90s we had a long banner over the full length saying:
"Here sails a traffic jam of 13 trucks."
Then the European Union "happened" and legislation was put in place that first outlawed our generations old system of equal freight distribution, secondly made new regulations and approval requirements that are all but impossible for independent skipper-owners of small and/or older vessels to comply with, and furthermore heavily subsidised the building of ever larger ships and huge bankloans to purchase those.
So nowadays skippers either work for a fixed wage on ships of large companies or they are very much in debt and therefore have to sign long badly paid contracts with those same companies :-(

Will London fall?

It is an #irony of #history that it was Mrs. #Thatcher who may have given birth to modern #London, when her #government deregulated the financial markets in 1985 in the so-called Big Bang, paving the way for the city’s rise as a global financial behemoth.

As borders have tightened along the western Balkan route to Europe, more lone female refugees are arriving in Serbia having experienced violence and trafficking. Many who want to continue their journeys are using even riskier routes and never appear in official data.

What Does It Take to Climb Up the Ladder?

Second, neither religious leaders nor practicing politicians nor #government employees have found the levers that actually make disadvantaged families more durable or functional. As a corollary, the failure of government efforts to affect or slow down negative developments has left an opening for conservatives to argue that government interventions make things worse.

The Rise of the Hard #Left

source: https://theringer.com/new-left-media-current-affairs-chapo-trap-house-crooked-media-9cb016070532
In a recent column for Vanity Fair, the writer James #Wolcott lumped many of these types of publications and their writers under the label “alt-left,” joining them to the Trumpian alt-right under the banner of their mutual discontent with #Obama and #Clinton, as well as what he called a desire for a “climactic reckoning.” “They’re not kissin’ cousins,” Wolcott wrote, “but they caterwaul some of the same tunes in different keys.”
