Filmmakers Stopped By Police Outside An Airbnb Because They Were Black
A group of three filmmakers claim they were stopped by police after they checked out of an Airbnb rental in California simply because they were black – saying a neighbor called cops on them because they didn’t wave hello.

Trump: Deport Without 'Judges Or Court Cases'
President Donald Trump on Sunday called for the US to deport people without judicial proceedings, referred to an invasion by "these people" and railed against standing immigration laws. "We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents..." Trump tweeted. CNN

Trump Jabs 'Wacky Jacky And Pocahontas' While Campaigning For Dean Heller In Nevada
In a visit to boost one of the nation's most vulnerable Republican senators ahead of this fall's November election, President Donald Trump unveiled a new nickname for the Democrat running to unseat Sen. Dean Heller. "Wacky Jacky," Trump said at the Nevada GOP convention, in reference to Rep. Jacky Rosen. "You don't want her as your senator." Trump's short Saturday swing through Las Vegas was aimed largely at bolstering Heller, who is running for re-election in a state Hillary Clinton won in 2016. Just before his speech to the state GOP, he held a backstage fundraiser for Heller. CNN

Campaigners Dismayed At European Internet Ruling
A means to an end, or an end to memes? Tech leaders and digital rights activists in Europe have expressed dismay over new rules they say could change the open nature of the internet forever — and potentially kill meme culture. They have been fighting against Article 13 of the proposed E.U. Copyright Directive, which would place responsibility for enforcing copyright law on websites and platforms, rather than individuals.

Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., said Sunday that a "small percentage" of migrants seeking entry into the U.S. fit President Donald Trump's characterization of the "worst" of society, insisting that a "vast majority" are doing so for economic opportunity.

North Korea Skips Annual Anti-US Imperialism Rally
North Korea has opted not to hold an "anti-U.S. imperialism" rally marking the anniversary of the start of the Korean War, another sign of detente following the summit between leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump.

Little Russian Media Project Tries To Turn America Against Itself

Over the weekend, he sat in an oyster bar in the basement of Grand Central Station in New York City and related to McClatchy the endless difficulties facing his English-language website, USA Really, which is financed by unnamed pro-Kremlin Russians.

Detained Migrants Say They Were Told They Could Get Kids Back On Way Out Of US
Central American men separated from their children and held in a detention facility outside Houston are being told they can reunite with their kids at the airport if they agree to sign a voluntary deportation order now, according to one migrant at the facility and two immigration attorneys who have spoken to detainees there. A Honduran man who spoke to The Texas Tribune Saturday estimated that 20 to 25 men who have been separated from their children are being housed at the IAH Polk County Secure Adult Detention Center, a privately-operated U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility for men located 75 miles outside Houston.

Bernie Sanders Winning Converts But Primary Victories Remain Elusive
Their rock star had arrived. As the sun set on a sticky June evening, hundreds of supporters screamed. They chanted his name. They tried to get close enough to touch him. “You all ready to make a political revolution?” Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent, asked them last week, fist pumping, voice booming. Then, for more than 15 minutes, he riffed on his familiar themes: “Medicare for All,” tuition-free public college, a $15 minimum wage. Someone held a sign urging a 2020 presidential run. NY Times

Weinstein Used Cipriani Properties As 'Hunting Grounds'
Harvey Weinstein used properties owned by restaurant magnate Giuseppe Cipriani as a “hunting ground” for women — even going so far as to turn rooftop suites into his own personal “sex pads,” according to a report.

Merkel Presses Over Migration As European Solution Fails
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday she would seek direct deals with separate European Union states on migration, conceding the bloc had failed to find a joint solution to the issue threatening her government. Since Mediterranean arrivals spiked in 2015, when more than a million refugees and migrants reached the bloc, EU leaders have been at odds over how to handle them. The feud has weakened their unity and undermined Europe’s Schengen free-travel area. Reuters

New Normal: Trump Allies Face Harassment, Protests Anywhere They Show Their Faces
Staffers and allies of President Donald Trump face a new normal in today’s heated political environment: the potential for harassment and protests anywhere they show their faces — both in their public and private lives.

'That's Just Not Correct': Former Trump Hispanic Advisor Fact Checks CNN Host On Immigration
Immigration expert Steve Cortes corrected host Fredricka Whitfield on the reality of family separation at the U.S. southern border during CNN’s Newsroom Sunday. The U.S. Border Patrol does not separate immigrant families who claim asylum if they appear at a legal point of entry to the U.S., Cortes, the former head of President Donald Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Council, said. Until recently, only the families that tried to come into the country outside a point of entry — making them illegal immigrants — were separated. Daily Caller

China Uses Robotic Doves For Surveillance
If you’ve ever looked up to the sky and enjoyed the sight of a bird gliding above, be warned: it could be a Chinese drone monitoring your every move. The idea might seem far fetched, but robotic birds are very much a reality, and China has been using them to surveil people across the country. Sources told the South China Morning Post that more than 30 military and government agencies have deployed the birdlike drones and related devices in at least five provinces in recent years. WND

Supreme Court Poised To Rule On Trump Travel Ban
The U.S. Supreme Court, winding down its nine-month term, will issue rulings this week in its few remaining cases including a major one on the legality of President Donald Trump’s ban on people from five Muslim-majority nations entering the country.

Young Republicans Hold Unique Space In The Trump Era
Robert Lee, Chelsea Magee and Colt Chambers are political activists who all sound pretty typical for their generation when it comes to issues like immigration and same-sex marriage. Lee, a self-described atheist, insists he doesn't "want to spend one dollar building a wall with Mexico." Magee, a 33-year-old in suburban Atlanta, says if you want to marry someone of the same sex then it's "between you, your spouse and God." And Chambers insists a "true Republican" shouldn't care about same-sex marriage because "the government shouldn't be so involved in everyone's every day lives." NPR

Tariffs Are Not The Way To Beat China
America is stumbling into a trade war with China that just might undo most of the good that the Trump administration has done for other parts of our economic policy. Yes, China is a huge threat to the United States. I've been shouting this from the rooftops for the past five years, while the neo-conservative conventional wisdom held that China would collapse of its own weight. Yes, China is determined to overtake us in critical technologies. And yes, China plays dirty. PJ Media

Glenn Beck Takes Off Mic, Storms Off CNN Set
The context of the interview, which we'll be posting shortly here in this space, was as Glenn says, the immigration debate, and it was contentious already prior to Stelter switching gears.

The article was combative and insulting, to say the least. This is the operative part of the article: PJ Media

Some 200 protesters from the League of United Latin American Citizens, who were bussed in from cities all over Texas, descended upon the McAllen detainment facility, and several attempted to stop a bus that was transporting illegal immigrants to another detention center. On “Fox & Friends” Sunday morning, reporter Griff Jenkins explained what happened.

House May Vote On Indefinite Immigrant Detention Bill
When President Trump announced that his administration would stop separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border last week, he made it clear that the rest of his severe border policy would remain in place. But there’s a big legal roadblock standing in the way of Trump’s vision “zero tolerance” vision: the Flores settlement, a 1997 consent decree requiring that children who cross the border accompanied by their parents must be released within 20 days. NY Mag

Time Magazine's Fake Cover Sparks Slew Of Imitators
While CNN did a story hailing the latest Time magazine cover as “powerful” for spreading the myth blaming President Trump for separating children from parents at the border, Twitter users have been producing their own alternate covers by the score. “It’s a telling image,” the CNN report said. “It shows the compassion gap that exists between the Trump administration’s ‘zero-tolerance’ border policy and the real-life people that are affected.” WND

Pastor: 'I Want You To Quit Church. Now!'
Regularly, I meet and train pastors and church leaders from all over the country through my leadership platform, ChurchBOOM. The conversations carry a common theme – a lot of people who attend church are passive towards serving, giving and community outreach. In most churches, 80 percent of the work is being carried out by 20 percent or less of the people. We’ve become a church of spectators and the pastoral staff is getting burned out. According to my own personal research, the problems are even bigger than the 80/20 principle. Fox

House Republicans Face Another Week Of Fighting Over Immigration
House Republican leaders will start the coming week the same way they started last week: facing partywide insurrection over an immigration bill that has been repeatedly sabotaged by President Trump.

Department Of Homeland Security Releases Plan To Reunify Families
The Trump administration has released its plan for reuniting children who have been separated from their parents as a result of the president's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, but in a fact sheet issued on Saturday, it provided no timeline for when those reunifications will happen.

Gingrich: Dems' Resistance to Immigration Bills Seeks To 'Exploit Children' For 'Partisan Benefit
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and the Democrats should work with Republicans to address the nation’s border security problems, including human trafficking, rather than “exploit children for the Democratic Party’s partisan benefit.” Gingrich told PJM that Schumer was being his “usual destructive self” by refusing to support a permanent legislative solution to U.S. immigration authorities separating children from their parents when they are caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. PJ Media

Trump Tweets, Hard Right Voters Hamper GOP Immigration Push
Republican apprehension over President Donald Trump’s next tweet and fear of riling conservative voters are undermining GOP leaders’ election-year struggle to shove an immigration bill through the House this week, leaving their prospects dubious. Party leaders are trying to finally secure the votes they need for their wide-ranging bill with tweaks they hope will goose support from the GOP’s dueling conservative and moderate wings. But more importantly, wavering Republicans want Trump to provide political cover for immigration legislation that’s despised by hard-right voters.  AP
