Sessions has no regrets for Hawaii remark

AG Jeff Sessions Holds A Meeting On Transnational Organized Crime

So this is a huge matter.

"I wasn't diminishing the judge or the island of Hawaii, that attractive place, give me a break", Sessions said later in response to Velshi, who asked about criticism of Sessions' remark.

Last month, Watson issued a nationwide injunction blocking President Donald Trump's travel ban, ruling that the plaintiffs - the state of Hawaii and Ismail Elshikh, the imam of the Muslim Association of Hawaii - had reasonable grounds to challenge the order as religious discrimination. The Department of Justice is now appealing the decision. You can pay for things there with USA currency.

We deserved to lose against Man Utd, admits Conte
Conte said: "We didn't play a good game and United deserved to win the game". "It is very simple but in this case the fault is of the coach".

Hawaii Sens. Mazie Hirono and Brian Schatz, and much of the internet, were not pleased with the description, and quickly reminded Sessions' of Hawaii's status.

So-called "Attorney General" Jeff Sessions is an incompetent boob and a petty jackass to boot. Derrick Watson is actually a federal judge who happens to serve on a district court in Hawaii. Watson's chambers are in Honolulu, on the island of Oahu. "It's my home. Have some respect". He also quoted a tweet from political scientist Ian Bremmer that said, "First Trump doesn't care N Korea can already hit Hawaii; now Sessions says it's just some 'island in the Pacific.' #Mahalo". I am frankly dumbfounded that our nation's top lawyer would attack our independent judiciary. "I think it's a fabulous place and had a granddaughter born there".

Of course, the action wasn't the opinion of just one judge.

BC NDP pledges $400 annual renters rebate
He says it would cost $4-billion per year if brought in, and again raising the spectre of B.C. losing its AAA credit rating. A large part of cutting that waste, according to Horgan, is getting rid of what he calls Christy Clark's "LNG Fantasy Fund".

Late this afternoon, Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin expressed disappointment with Sessions.

"But I got to tell you - it's a point worth making that a single sitting judge out of 600, 700 district judges can issue an order stopping a presidential executive order that I believe is fully constitutional, created to protect the United States of America from terrorist attacks". What he meant, I think, was that since most travel is to the mainland USA and since the ban is related to Trump's overarching policy of more secure borders, it's unfair that a judge who sits outside the mainland and doesn't normally deal with traditional border issues would set policy for the country, even temporarily.

Ahh, so this isn't actually related to the 50th state's constitutional power to adjudicate on executive authority.

US general confident North Korean missile can be intercepted
The missile allegedly malfunctioned shortly after launching, causing it to spin out of control and crash into the sea. The North's latest missile launch also came during annual military drills between the United States and South Korea.
