On Friday, two men, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, were brutally murdered while trying to confront someone hurling anti-Muslim epithets on a comm in Portland. The two have been widely hailed as heroes, but not by President Donald Trump until Monday. Trump broke his silence with a tweet from the @POTUS handle. Forgive us if this doesn't seem to have come from Trump himself. The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. Our prayers are w/ them. President Trump (@POTUS) May 29, 2017 SEE ALSO: 8th graders refuse to take a photo with Paul Ryan because they don't "want to be associated with him" Read more...

The widow of South Sudan liberation hero John Garang is calling on government soldiers to forsake President Salva Kiir. Rebecca Nyandeng told VOA's South Sudan in Focus the country's internal conflict benefits mainly the president, who she said is amassing wealth while soldiers go without paychecks. “I am appealing to soldiers of the SPLA not to fight one another, to come back for peace, and leave this senseless war for President Salva,” Nyandeng said Monday. The SPLA, which fought for South Sudan's independence from Sudan, split into pro and anti-government factions at the start of the war in December 2013. Nyandeng said if government solders put down their arms, Salva Kiir “will not be able to stay in power.” According to the United Nations, more than 1.8 million South Sudanese have fled the country since fighting broke out in late 2013. Another 1.

PARIS: Rafael Nadal launched his quest for a record 10th French Open title with a 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 win over Frenchman Benoit Paire on Monday. Nadal, who was forced to withdraw before last year's third round with a wrist injury, broke Paire eight times to brush aside the world number 45 in less than two hours. "I'm very happy to be back here after what happened last year. It's great to feel the support," said the 14-time major champion. Nadal dominated the opening set, then recovered from a slight second-set wobble when he dropped serve twice in a row to surge into a round two meeting with Dutchman Robin Haase. The Spaniard, whose last Grand Slam triumph came at Roland Garros in 2014, improved his incredible French Open record to 73 wins and just two losses. Nadal lost this year's Australian Open final in a five-set epic to Roger Federer, but the 30-year-old has marked himself out as the favourite on his preferred surface.

And they dont really bother to investigate. There is no condemnation. Nothing. They show the priests and the religious people doing shenanigans, but it is seen just as part of the show of the night. Is it liberality? Is it because you dont want to condemn your own countrymen? Or is it because the victims were just natives? Never mind about them. We were considered natives. And sometimes pictured as apes. MF: Was it important for you that he was an American? RD: I dont know. I broke it for the first time because I call all the bishops stupid. And they are really stupid. You know that? Because there is a book here which also exposes their shenanigans. It’s called Altar of Secrets . May I have a copy? I’ll give you one. It was wrote by a narrator of the bishopsconference. I give it to you. Read it, and you will understand how corrupted the Catholic Church in this country is.

Facebook's status: Tech or media company? - The Listening Post (Lead) When The Guardian broke its Facebook story this week, revealing what it called the site's rule book on sex, terrorism and violence, the picture that emerged was one of a technology company that has accidentally grown into something else, the world's biggest media platform. A company that is making up the rules as it goes along, recently almost doubling its number of content moderators. And Facebook is doing that while trying to maintain what is, and will always be, its primary mission: keeping people on the site. Boosting its number of content moderators was Facebook's response to a horrific case earlier this month, when a man in Thailand posted a video of himself murdering his young daughter before taking his own life. Like other postings of shootings, rapes and suicides, that video was deleted, but only after users complained about it.
