Matthew Whitaker, the new acting attorney general, has said that states have the right to nullify federal law, but that they need the political courage to do so.

The President, earlier today, tweeted he’s considering starting a worldwide network to bypass unfair and false news about the United States. Here’s what the President had to say:

Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!

The Trump administration is attempting to negotiate a deal, with Mexico over the thousands of Central American caravan migrants camped out in Tijuana and Mexicali, and last night, announced there was one, with asylum applicants having to wait out adjudication of their claims in Mexico, not the U.S. The idea was to disincentivize junk asylum claims from applicants whose real aim is to work in the U.S. for a couple years and remit the earnings until courts get around to dismissing the claims and deports them.
U.S. Congressman Bob Goodlatte, recently visited Serco Inc.’s Virginia facility after they announced having processed their 4 millionth patent application for the USPTO.

Congratulations to Serco on achieving this milestone and continuing to help make America more competitive.”
Dumping the Honduran flags, a group of about 150 caravan migrants apparently did a test run for a border surge, swarming the police at a border bridge in Tijuana with white flags “of peace” and paying no attention to warnings that this isn’t the way they are going to get asylum into the United States.
