PARTYING LIKE IT’S 1859:
If you are looking for a nice, safe place to go on vacation, don’t go to Atlanta.
Fox Insider reports that Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms signed an Executive Order on Thursday that bans all ICE detainees from Atlanta jails. The narrative that this administration’s immigration policies are evil found another believer.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Saturday effectively prohibiting new federal offshore oil drilling along California’s coast, and announced that he opposes plans to expand crude exploration on public lands in the state.

Brown has worked to cultivate a status as one of President Donald Trump’s chief opponents.
“Today, California’s message to the Trump administration is simple: Not here, not now,” the Democratic governor noted in a press statement announcing the move. “We will not let the federal government pillage public lands and destroy our treasured coast.”
Old and busted: Confederate-era Democrats believe they can pick and choose which federal laws they wish to enforce.
The new hotness? Err, pretty much the same in the Trump era.
