Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearing protests are as American as apple pie Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearing protests are as American as apple pie
I’m very sorry to tell Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) that the protestors who disrupted the opening day of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings are not guilty of “mob rule” as he said Tuesday.

Texas AG: We're suing to repeal DACA because no president should have that much power Texas AG: We're suing to repeal DACA because no president should have that much power
“I am president, I am not king.

On July Fourth, hackers accessed computers at the social media aggregator Timehop. They stole 21 million user records.

When a boys' soccer team in northern Thailand went missing and was thought to be trapped in a flooded cave, the Thai government went into action. The first thing it did was deploy its military forces, including a team of Thai navy SEALs. The second thing it did was conclude that it needed help.
