TRUMP’S UK TRIP: Somebody needs to point out to The View that neither Bill Clinton nor Barack Obama served in the military. As for Joe Biden, he received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War and later was disqualified from service because of asthma as a teenager. Lots of guys were disqualified for seemingly stupid physical failings. One of my brothers went to Vietnam and was badly injured; the other was disqualified from service due to flat feet and poor vision. [4:52]

BORDER: Trump isn’t the culprit behind family separations [2:38] – The TDSing Left finds it convenient to just blame Trump for everything, but a huge part of the problem is that Congress has refused to act to fix our immigration problems, close the border, and provide enough resources to BP and ICE.

Authorities have been forced to literally dump non-English speaking foreigners into American cities, where they create all kinds of humanitarian and legal problems. In San Antonio, hundreds of illegals were dumped on the streets, leaving the city scrambling for French interpreters. And in Patrick County, Virginia, cops arrested 80 people – suspected illegal aliens and drug-traffickers – at an illegal cockfight.

MEXICO: Schumer sneered at Trump’s success in getting Mexico to agree to allow migrants to be returned to Mexico until their asylum claims can be heard by a judge. Mexico’s agreement to offer jobs and healthcare to the migrants will weaken lawsuits by pro-migration U.S. groups that oppose the deal.

Dan Crenshaw responded to Schumer’s tweet: “What an immature and deeply cynical reaction to what should be good news. Also demonstrates how little Democrat leadership actually cares about this massive problem on our border.”

TRUMP’S FOREIGN RELATIONS: President Donald Trump has improved relations with every one of America’s allies – You will not learn that from reading the news. The prevailing dogma in the mainstream media reflects the Democratic Party’s revisionist propaganda, which also obscures the fact that Barack Obama worsened relations with our allies in an effort to appease Russia, Iran, and other enemies.

MUELLER REPORT: This is a lot of very dense material dealing with five instances in which the Mueller report selectively edited source material in a manner designed to inflict political damage on President Donald Trump. These instances deal only with public and easily obtainable source materials, raising the question of how much of the unpublished source material was mangled. [21:46]

FLYNN: Newly released evidence is casting doubt over Michael Flynn’s guilty plea amid speculation over a possible pardon by President Trump. One America’s Kristian Rouz looks into the matter. I have no problem believing Flynn was screwed over by the Mueller team in order to get Democrats a scalp and that he deserves a presidential pardon. [3:49]

Hillary cyber defense

HILLARY’S EMAIL SERVER: Public confirmation that classified information was definitely stolen and published by hackers – Newly released documents from the FBI show that then-SecState Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized, private email server were found on the dark web. At least one document was “overtly classified” and “represents a major loss to the Intelligence Community.”

Gibson's

GIBSON’S BAKER WINS: After a nearly month-long trial, the jury has found in favor of the Gibson family business. The family is being awarded a multi-million dollar settlement that the college’s insurance company is looking to wiggle out of paying.

The family’s problems started when three students from Oberlin College shoplifted at their store on Nov. 9, 2016. Their reward for calling the police on the shoplifters was to be targeted for persecution by Oberlin College students who caused enormous damage to the multi-generational family business. Oberlin College supported the students’ actions of defamation.

The Gibsons’ attorneys said, “The jury saw that Oberlin College went out of their way to harm a good family and longtime business in their community for no real reason, and the jury said we aren’t going to tolerate that in our community any more.”

Also, “People around the country should learn from this, that you can use the legal system to right the wrongs, even if the one doing the wrong is some huge institution who thinks they can do anything they want.”

law school

ABORTION: The University of Alabama is returning a $21.5 million gift from Hugh Culverhouse Jr. — the school’s biggest donor — and taking his name off its law school. The move comes after Culverhouse urged businesses and prospective students to boycott the university and the state over Alabama’s new abortion law, but the Board of Trustees says it is “a direct result of Mr. Culverhouse’s ongoing attempts to interfere in the operations of the Law School.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Friday signed legislation that specifically prevents local governments from entering into reduced tax and lease agreements with abortion providers. It also prevents cities and counties from “advocacy or lobbying on behalf of the interests of an abortion provider or affiliate.” The bill, which takes effect Sept. 1, does not impact hospitals or doctor’s offices that perform fewer than 50 abortions per year.

Yeager

MILITARY: The U.S. Army National Guard has selected the first female officer – Brig. Gen. Laura Yeager – to command an infantry division, marking another milestone for women serving in combat units. Yeager will assume command of the California National Guard’s 40th Infantry Division during a June 29 ceremony at the Joint Forces Training Base at Los Alamitos, California. She currently commands Joint Task Force North, U.S. Northern Command, at Fort Bliss, Texas, and has served more than three decades in the Army.
