2. The United States Supreme Court announced it will not review a North Carolina voter ID law that discriminated against black voters. At least the courts are still fighting for human rights… More here.

3. California has allocated $15 million in their state budget to help those fighting deportation. How much of this will have to be used on failed screenwriters? More here.

4. North Korea just got a little closer to being able to hit the United States with a missile. No one tell Trump. More here.

5. The Trump White House’s new defence for its lies: “Fake but accurate.” That’s got an incredibly Orwellian ring to it. More here.
