We are going to adjust the schedule to be once a week, every Monday for the near future. No sense in ruining your Friday with depressing news now that summer is here ☀️ 

1/ One Last Stand: Travel Ban Goes To Supreme Court
After both the initial executive order and a revision have been struck down in courtrooms across the country, the Trump Administration has appealed to the Supreme Court to decide the constitutionality of the order intended to ban foreign travelers from initially seven and then amended to ban from six Muslim-majority countries.
Once again, largely because of President Trump’s own words, tweets, and statements, About the only thing the 10 judges in the majority disagreed about was whether President Trump’s campaign statements are relevant to his motive – but even the judges who said no still thought there was enough evidence of discriminatory intent since his inauguration to strike down the ban

Appeals court upholds block on Trump's travel ban
Many expect a 5-4 decision, they just don’t know which way. One thing to remember is that the Supreme Court is ultimately the highest ranking body in the United States, that can set a legal precedent. And it’s not uncommon for them to redefine older precedents set by the courts. I think about this when I see an article with the newest member of the bench Trump-Appointee Neil Gorsuch talking about his opinion that everyone needs to respect decisions made by the courts:
In a properly functioning judicial system, Justice Gorsuch said at an event at Harvard University, “the government can lose in its own courts and accept the judgment of those courts.”

2/ Two Attacks In 12 days
Three men plowed a van into pedestrians on the London Bridge, and then jumped out and sporadically began stabbing people.

3/ Comey Testifies Publicly For The First Time Since Being Fired
After receiving clearance from the special investigator leading the FBI investigation, former FBI Director James Comey will testify
If you haven’t caught up on the salacious news reports that have broke in the last two weeks and has the White House preparing a “war room”, this is a good place to start:
What’s next in the Russia investigation? The week’s biggest bombshells.

4/ UK Prime Minister Theresa May and her "Internet Manifesto" go up for election
The government now appears to be launching a similarly radical change in the way that social networks and internet companies work. While much of the internet is currently controlled by private businesses like Google and Facebook, Theresa May intends to allow government to decide what is and isn’t published, the manifesto suggests.
Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated following London Bridge terror attack
Theresa May called for a “snap election” for their parliamentary members when her conservative Torrie party had a 14 point advantage in the pools. That lead is now down to 7 as voters head to the polls on Thursday.
Are The U.K. Polls Skewed?
5/ Trump Fulfills Campaign Promise Withdrawing From The Paris Accords
The US joins 2 other countries, Syria and Nicaragua who are not a part of the accords. And Nicaragua only didn’t sign because the deal didn’t call for enough action
World leaders accuse Trump of turning his back on the planet
However a group of cities, states and companies have asked the UN to accept their group as contributors to the Paris Climate Accord.
Bucking Trump, these cities, states and companies commit to Paris Accord
6/ Get Ready For iOS 11
Apple’s annual developer conference kicks off on Monday and for the last decade at least the company has at least previewed the newest feature of their mobile operating system iOS. Don’t expect a new iPhone just yet, but do expect a handful of updates including ipad/mac updates possibly a new speaker like Amazon’s Alexa… but for Siri.

7/ Supreme Court Protects Individual Ownership In Case About Pinter Toner
As mentioned earlier, every court but most importantly the Supreme Court has the exclusive authority to set new precedents or revise older precedents on what is and is not considered constitutional. Which is why this case about printer maker Lexmark is important to the rights of Americans to “tinker” with any and every technical device they own.
