Americans are forbidden to enter these communities. (via Twitter)Dear Obama: please admit you have failed the American people.

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the late Justice Antonin Scalia were honored Monday by Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. During a speech she gave at the event, Justice Ginsburg described Senator Lindsey Graham as one of the “women of the Senate.” Justice Ginsburg gave a brief talk about civility and her friendship with the late Justice Scalia. She then made an implied contrast between the era in which she and Scalia were confirmed and the present day. “I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court,” she said. She continued, “The hearing was altogether civil....

    Every time Senator Lindsay Graham opens his mouth, crazy things fly out. Is there something wrong with this guy? It's not for nothing that a MorningConsult poll released Tuesday pegged him at the third-most unpopular senator, trailed by only John McCain and Mitch McConnell. But there are methods to the madnesses of McCain and McConnell. In Graham's case, the loathing is justified, given his out of control statements, signalling an unserious mind, unmoored from reality.

In a friend-of-the-court amicus brief to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, 13 other state attorneys general and Republican Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, laid out constitutional and federal statutory provisions defending Trump’s authority. The attorneys general also defended Trump’s “lawful actions” to revise the executive order, which was blocked last month by a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit. “The president’s revised immigration order is constitutional, lawful, addresses the 9th Circuit’s concerns and...

    A wind gust sent an inflatable bounce house and slide sailing into the air over the weekend during a church carnival, injuring five children. Springwell Church invites the community to attend its free spring carnival each year, but this year the carnival ended in tears, with church members asking for prayer. Organizers say the inflatables were anchored with stakes and tethers, yet a strong wind gust was still able to rip them from the ground and shoot the bounce house up to 30 feet into the air, where it hit some power lines before tumbling to the ground. Witnesses reported...

    QINGDAO, China — After Haier Group bought the General Electric Co. appliance unit last year, the Chinese company's chairman says he gave its American managers unusual orders: Ignore me.

Now, he is trying to transform a traditional manufacturer with 60,000 employees in 25 countries into a nimble, Internet-age seller of consumer goods and services from web-linked washing machines to food delivery.

(UPI) More than 1,800 unionized employees of Boeing will leave the company through voluntary buyouts, two unions announced.Personnel cuts in Boeing’s commercial aircraft division, where the formerly Seattle-based company has about half of...
