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.

During a discussion on Fox’s “The Five” about Trump’s participation in a women’s empowerment panel Tuesday, Jesse Watters criticized the crowd for booing and hissing the first daughter when she described her father as a “champion” for women and families. “Yeah, it’s funny, the left says they’ll really respect women and then when given an opportunity to respect a woman like that they boo and hiss,” Watters said.

By Phil Stewart and David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration said on Wednesday it aimed to push North Korea into dismantling its nuclear and missile programs through tougher international sanctions and diplomatic pressure, and remained open to negotiations to bring this about. The U.S. stance, which appeared to signal a willingness to exhaust non-military options in spite of repeated warnings that "all options are on the table," came in a statement following an unusual White House-hosted briefing for the entire Senate. The statement from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats described North Korea as "an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority".

The US Supreme Court took a narrow view Tuesday on the immunity from lawsuits enjoyed by Native American tribes, which are treated in some respects like sovereign states that cannot be sued in American courts. In a case involving a limousine driver who rear-ended a car on a Connecticut freeway, the highest court in the land ruled unanimously that tribal employees do not always have immunity when involved in incidents that take place far from reservations. The justices revived a civil lawsuit filed by the injured occupants of the car in state court, overturning the Connecticut Supreme Court's decision to dismiss the case because the driver worked for the Mohegan Tribe, which runs a casino in the state.

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.
By David Mardiste AMARI AIR BASE, Estonia (Reuters) - Two of the U.S. Air Force's newest and most advanced jets landed in the Baltic state of Estonia for the first time on Tuesday, a symbolic gesture meant to reinforce the United States' commitment to the defense of NATO allies that border Russia. The visit of the F-35 stealth fighters, which flew from Britain and spent several hours in Estonia, is part of broader U.S. jet pilot training across Europe as the NATO alliance seeks to deter Moscow from any possible incursion in the Baltics. "This is a very clear message," Estonia's Defense Minister Margus Tsahkna told Reuters.

The stated objective of the Hezbollah-coordinated press tour of southern Lebanon was to see new Israeli defensive installations on the border – indications, according to the powerful Shiite Lebanese militia, of Israeli fears of Hezbollah’s growing military might. The unprecedented spectacle appeared to be a deliberate and calculated breach of a UN Security Council resolution that bans non-state forces from bearing arms in southern Lebanon, and it illustrated the unmatched sway Hezbollah wields, and the impunity it enjoys throughout the country. Recommended: Hezbollah 101: Who is the militant group, and what does it want?

You'd think Twitter would be able to milk its status as President Donald Trump's megaphone. Analysts say Twitter's user engagement — how often people respond, retweet or "like," for instance — likely benefited from "political discourse" in the first quarter. The problem: The people already on Twitter may well be using it more, but America's first true "Twitter President" hasn't inspired others to sign up for Twitter en masse.
Niantic has demanded that the creators of PokeSensor and PokeSearch discontinue work on their apps immediately. Perhaps the most in-depth explanation of the events came from PokeSensor’s Patrick Ballard. To make a long story short, Ballard reportedly received an email from Apple this weekend suggesting that The Pokémon Company had taken issue with Sensor’s use of the Pokémon Trainer Club API. As a result, it was mandated that the project be removed from the App Store immediately.
