G-7 Summit Makes History
The 45th G-7 summit hasn’t even started yet and it’s already making history. The meeting won’t even attempt to end with an agreement for the first time since the global summit’s inception.
The leaders of Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Japan, Italy and the United States are scheduled to attend the meeting on August 24-26 in Biarritz, France.
In the past, every G-7 summit would end with a final statement of agreed-upon initiatives. These typically dealt with topics such as the environment, trading, or other areas that all the countries agree to focus on improving.
French President Emmanuel Macron, who is hosting this year’s meeting, said that it would be pointless and that abandoning the tradition shows “a very deep crisis of democracy.”
This weekend is likely to bring the first @G7 summit in history to end without a joint statement.
But Macron might issue his own summary of the talks, presenting an opportunity to reiterate the need to combat secret foreign political donations. <THREAD> https://t.co/U6FwUcUuam

He attempted to use President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement as an example of why the G-7 is having a hard time appearing as a united front. If refusing to get sucked into bad deals means not coming to an agreement, then perhaps that’s the best option.
North Carolina Governor Vetoes Anti-Sanctuary Bill
North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a bill this week that would have required local law enforcement to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) orders and agents. The bill, titled “An Act to Require Compliance with Immigration Detainers and Administrative Warrants,” would have allowed ICE to issue detainer requests in the state and have them honored.
North Carolina officially has a Sanctuary Governor. Roy Cooper just vetoed H370, which would have simply required Sheriffs to honor ICE detainers for illegal immigrants charged with crimes in our state. #ncpol pic.twitter.com/07gmbjiPwn

Cooper, it appears, is more concerned about protecting illegal immigrants than trying to keep his state safe. North Carolina Sen. Chuck Edwards (R-NC) is disgusted with the Governor’s actions.
Law enforcement officers have a sworn responsibility to protect their citizens—and that includes cooperating with federal authorities. Governor Cooper, who prefers to pander to his far-left supporters, we will protect North Carolinians and plan to override his irresponsible veto.

To make matters even worse, Cooper issued the veto just a few days after ICE arrested illegal alien Oscar Pacheco for first-degree rape and indecent liberties with a child after he was released on bail. Let’s hope that Roy Cooper is voted out in 2020 and someone with some common sense takes his place. Maybe then the children of North Carolina will be truly safe.
Bus Companies Stand Up to the ACLU
The Governor of North Carolina might not care about keeping people safe, but some bus companies on the East Coast are doing their part in protecting our country. Concord Coach and Greyhound are both rejecting calls from the ACLU to not cooperate with ICE agents or consent to searches.
Greyhound doesn't have to grant CBP consent to board its buses and racially profile customers.
— ACLU (@ACLU) August 14, 2019
The ACLU has sent letters to the bus companies reminding them that they have a 4th Amendment right to deny the searches and said that their passengers will experience distress because of them. Both bus lines have many stops within 100 miles of the Canadian border where bus checks have become routine.
The only people who will experience distress are snowflake liberals and illegal aliens. Last year, over 4300 undocumented immigrants were arrested along the northern border. This is a serious problem and the ACLU shouldn’t be encouraging the bus lines to stand in the way of securing our borders.
