Jimmy Lai has been a thorn that Beijing has wanted to remove for a long, long time. But Beijing could not have gotten here without the help of many people in the Hong Kong establishment. This is a sad and astonishing moment. https://t.co/ANj4vDxClW

Large number of police have entered @appledaily_hk HQs in HK and sealed off the building. This officer told a reporter going live on the situation inside the building to switch off the camera but the reporter is keeping it rolling. https://t.co/RLUoF49ZiP

1. President Trump had no choice but to issue the Executive Orders this afternoon, and given that Obama instituted DACA without legislation and John Roberts seemed okay with that, the president's DOJ will have strong grounds on which to defend them.

The Tea Party was already dead and buried, but this weekend the coffin was exhumed and all its biggest former cheerleaders took turns whacking the corpse in the head with a hatchet. https://t.co/yBlMSKR7zI

Let us not forget: the U.S. dropped two bombs on Japan. Today is the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. I visited four years ago, when the city was not on the itinerary as President Obama visited Hiroshima https://t.co/xzhrllAoiW
