President Trump lashed out early Wednesday after the federal court system stymied yet another one of his executive orders on immigration. “First the Ninth Circuit rules against the ban & now it hits again on sanctuary cities-both ridiculous rulings. In a Tuesday ruling, U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued a temporary injunction against Trump’s executive order to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities,” or places that limit the extent to which local enforcement can comply with orders from federal immigration officials.

A gunman condemned to die for a 2014 sniper attack that killed a Pennsylvania trooper and injured a second arrived at the courthouse Thursday for his formal sentencing, one of his last stops before heading to the state's crowded death row.

Prosecutors said Frein, 33, was hoping to start an uprising against the government when he opened fire on the Blooming Grove barracks in the Pocono Mountains on Sept. 12, 2014.

Famed Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein says that the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn could end up revealing a “cover-up” of alleged connections between President Donald Trump's team and Russia. “There, he is central to what the FBI believes is a cover-up going on among people close to the president of the United States about what happened with the Trump campaign and Russia,” Mr Bernstein, who is now a CNN commentator, said. Mr Bernstein said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, now that he is leading the Justice Department's probe into Russia's role alleged in the election, will eventually see that there is a cover-up as well.

Republican congressional leaders expressed confidence Thursday that a short-term stop-gap spending measure that funds federal operations will pass, easing the threat of a government shutdown as Donald Trump marks his 100th day as president. The Republican-controlled Congress has struggled to meet a midnight Friday deadline to strike a final deal on funding through September 30, the end of the fiscal year. Democrats and Republicans have squared off in debates over priorities that the White House had wanted included in the new spending bill, such as funding for a border wall and increased defense spending, as well as Democrats' demand to maintain cost-sharing arrangements that help low-income Americans purchase health insurance.

By Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA (Reuters) - With the prospect looming of a Middle East peace initiative by a new U.S. administration more sympathetic to Israel, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has decided to turn the screw on the Hamas group that has kept Gaza out of his control for a decade. Abbas's Western-backed Palestinian Authority (PA) on Thursday told Israel it would no longer pay for the electricity Israel supplies to Gaza, a move that could lead to a complete power shutdown in the territory, whose 2 million people already endure blackouts for much of the day. Israel does not engage directly with Hamas, regarding the Islamist group as a terrorist organization.

Obama spent an average of $12.1 million in travels per year - Trump is near to the annual target in just one month as he spent at least $10 million in three golf vacations only out of the total of seven trips to his resort. Trump has not yet traveled abroad.
The US admiral who ordered an aircraft carrier and other warships toward the Korean Peninsula in a much-hyped deployment took responsibility Wednesday for any "confusion" after the ships sailed in the opposite direction. Amid soaring tensions ahead of North Korea's apparent ramping up for a sixth nuclear test, the US Navy on April 8 said it was directing a naval strike group headed by the USS Carl Vinson carrier to "sail north" from the waters off Singapore, as a "prudent measure" to deter Pyongyang. "That's my fault on the confusion and I'll take the hit for it," Admiral Harry Harris, who heads the US military's Pacific Command, told lawmakers.

By Alastair Macdonald BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union leaders will insist Britain grant permanent residence to EU citizens who arrive before Brexit in 2019 and stay five more years, according to a draft negotiating plan they will endorse this weekend. In the latest sign of the bloc cranking up pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May to guarantee full rights after Britain's departure for the 3 million EU nationals living there, new draft guidelines include wording that diplomats said aims to head off any British move to cut immigrant numbers by forcing people out. The nine-page document, seen by Reuters on Tuesday and which officials do not expect to be significantly changed before May's 27 EU peers sign off on it over lunch in Brussels on Saturday, was also revised on Monday to make clear there is no guarantee that a future EU-UK free trade deal will give Britain's big financial services industry access to the bloc.
