    Immigrant and union groups will march in cities across the United States on Monday to mark May Day and protest against President Donald Trump's efforts to boost deportations. Tens of thousands of immigrants and their allies are expected to rally in cities such as New York, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles. Demonstrations also are planned for dozens of smaller cities from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, to Portland, Oregon. In many places, activists are urging people to skip work, school and shopping to show the importance of immigrants in American communities. Around the world, union members traditionally march on May 1 for workers' rights. The day has become a rallying point for immigrants in the U.S. since demonstrations were held in 2006 against a proposed immigration enforcement bill.

  • Asian shares were mostly higher Monday despite worries over regional tensions after a North Korea missile launch failed over the weekend. KEEPING SCORE: Many markets in Asia and Europe were closed for Labor Day. Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 gained 0.4 percent in the morning session to 19,274.99. Australia's S&P/ASX 200 was up nearly 0.1 percent to 5,927.60. WALL STREET: U.S. stocks closed modestly lower Friday. The Standard & Poor's 500 index slipped 4.57 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,384.20. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 40.82 points, or 0.2 percent, to 20,940.51. The Nasdaq composite lost 1.33 points, or 0.02 percent, to 6,047.61. NORTH KOREA: The failed attempt to launch a mid-range ballistic missile on Saturday added to regional uncertainty. President Donald Trump has warned that the U.S. 'can't allow' North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to develop better missiles. THE QUOTE: 'The market mood remains relatively cautious ahead of a big news week that will include the French election and U.S. jobs data,' Ric Spooner, chief market analyst at CMC Markets, said in a commentary. U.S. ECONOMY: U.S. jobs data will be released later this week. The Labor Department said last week the U.S. economy turned in its weakest performance in three years in the January-March quarter, reflecting a slowdown in consumer spending. Growth, as measured by gross domestic product, amounted to 0.7 percent in the first quarter, less than what economists were expecting. FRANCE FACTOR: A runoff election is set for Sunday for the French presidency between centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen. There are worries about growing nationalism. ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude fell 8 cents to $49.25 a barrel. It rose 36 cents, or 0.7 percent, to settle late Friday at $49.33 per barrel in New York.

  • They may not have lost themselves in the music or the moment but a judge and nine lawyers in a New Zealand courtroom did listen politely to Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' as a copyright trial involving the country's ruling political party began Monday. The Detroit-based music publishers for Eminem are suing New Zealand's conservative National Party, alleging the rapper's acclaimed 2002 song was copied in the party's soundtrack for a TV ad aired during its successful 2014 election campaign. Titled 'Eminem Esque,' the track has the familiar urgent, pulsing beat of Eminem's song. The party has previously said it purchased the track through an Australian-based supplier and doesn't believe it has infringed anyone's copyright. In 2014, when the case was filed, lawmaker Steven Joyce said he thought the use of the song was 'pretty legal,' and that Eminem's team 'are just having a crack and a bit of an eye for the main chance because it's an election campaign.' That response was widely ridiculed, including by comedian John Oliver on his show 'Last Week Tonight.' 'Pretty legal? That's not a concept that exists. That's like being sort-of dead,' Oliver joked on the show. Spokespeople for both Joyce and the National Party said Monday they wouldn't be commenting while the case was before the court. Garry Williams, the lawyer for Eminem's music publishers Eight Mile Style and Martin Affiliated, told the High Court in Wellington that the National Party had wanted a song that was edgy and modern but showed the party was dependable. He said the music fared better with focus groups than a classical piece. He quoted from National Party emails, including one in which the song is described as an Eminem 'sound-alike' and another in which an agent for the party wrote 'I guess the question we're asking, if everyone thinks it's Eminem, and it's listed as Eminem Esque, how can we be confident that Eminem doesn't say we're ripping him off?' Williams said the emails showed it was 'utterly clear' the party knew it was using a copyrighted song. Speaking outside the court, Joel Martin, a spokesman for Eminem's music publishers, said he was surprised the two sides hadn't reached a settlement before the case began and that going to trial against an entity like a governing political party was unusual and extraordinary. 'The bottom line is we would never have permitted the use of the song in any political advertisement,' he said. He said the political views of the National Party were not a factor: 'We are Americans and we don't know about politics in New Zealand,' he said. The judge-only trial is expected to last about six days.

  • Republicans in Congress return to Washington this week with a familiar to-do list, as the White House pushes for a vote in the House on a GOP health care overhaul bill, and lawmakers struggle to reach a deal on a spending plan that would avert a government shutdown on Friday night. Last week, the story was the same – as Congress approved a one-week stopgap budget to keep the government running – but House Republicans were unable to find enough support for a House vote on a GOP measure that’s designed to make major changes in the Obama health law. When last we saw House members on Friday morning, it didn’t look that promising on health care, as Republicans divisions persist, despite calls to action by President Donald Trump. “I believe we are down to just a handful of votes,” said Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY), a key ally in the House of President Donald Trump. Collins, who is supporting the GOP health care plan, freely admits that a number of his less conservative Republican allies in Congress are not thrilled about the GOP plan. “New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania Republicans are not Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida Republicans,” said Collins, who is trying to argue to fellow Republicans that the GOP plan is “not as onerous or draconian as they may think.” As of now, the GOP health care bill is not on this week’s legislative schedule in the House. “I don’t know when it’s going to happen,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the head of the more conservative House Freedom Caucus. “I’m still talking to members.” While the President went on Twitter Sunday morning to again push for action on the Obama health law, supporters of Obamacare were again issuing a call to lobby Congress, in hopes to staving off this latest GOP push. “This is a make-or-break week for Zombie Trumpcare,” said Topher Spiro, a top official with the liberal think tank, Center for American Progress. This is a make-or-break week for Zombie Trumpcare. It's time to DRIVE A STAKE THROUGH THE HEART.https://t.co/vsvGp0YzpS pic.twitter.com/3XJKtzrGGc — Topher Spiro (@TopherSpiro) April 30, 2017 The goal here is pretty simple for House Republicans – just get the GOP health care bill approved, however possible – and send it to the Senate. While that health care debate rages, lawmakers are also waiting to see the final product of months of negotiations on a budget plan that would fund Uncle Sam through the end of September. Once again this week, if the Congress can’t reach a deal, there’s the threat of a government shutdown on Friday night. Of course the government might shutdown again. Who knew eh? Things could get interesting Friday night. — Seige (@CjGinc) April 30, 2017 This time there is even more incentive to get that work done, as the House is scheduled to leave Washington on Thursday, for a ten day break. Health care. Government shutdown. Stay tuned.
  • If you've been saying April seems wetter than usual, you'd be right. National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Lacy says we've broken a record. “Tulsa has picked up 10.43 inches of rain in the month of April,” Lacy said.  “That breaks the record for the wettest April on record.” For reference, the previous record was 9.33 inches, set back in 2008. Saturday’s rain helped the cause.  Lacy tells us the Tulsa area received between two and three inches of rain.   There is a slight chance of rain on the final day of April.  
  • A woman and her dog had to be rescued yesterday in Spavinaw, from flooding. Emergency crews used a boat, as water rushed around her house. At last check, the woman and her fur baby are expected to be okay. She was hardly the only person in need of rescuing on Saturday.  Emergency crews and good Samaritans were busy with water rescues all over Cherokee County.   Two men had to be rescued, after their truck became stuck in the flood waters. The incident happened at Hanging Rock recreational area on Highway 10. One of the rescuers tells us he had to act quickly. “I was kind of scared for him,” the Good Samaritan said.  “He couldn’t swim and he was just kind of hanging onto a tree.” At last check, Cherokee County officials reported 14 water rescues since 11 a.m. Saturday.   Even the Oklahoma Highway Patrol had issues with the weather.   KRMG’s told a trooper’s car became stuck in standing water while responding to a crash near the Washington-Tulsa County line.
  • Marking his 100th day in office, President Donald Trump brought back memories of his campaign for the White House by using a raucous rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to proclaim progress on his agenda, throw some long distance elbows at the news media, and vow that he would follow through on his pledge build a wall along the southern border with Mexico. “I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles way from Washington’s swamp,” Mr. Trump said to cheers, as he began his speech by verbally smacking the news media, drawing the chant of “CNN sucks!” from the crowd. Mr. Trump’s visit to the Keystone State – one of a series of pivotal victories for him on Election Night – coincided with his 100th day in office, as he made clear he is not giving up on his promise to shake things up in the nation’s capital. President Trump greets the crowd at his 100-day rally in PA: 'I love this state and I love the people of this state' https://t.co/KAsKR8OUSO — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) April 29, 2017 The President again pledged to not only repeal the Obama health law, but also make health care coverage – in general – more affordable for all Americans. “We’re going to get the premiums down, we’re going to get the deductibles down; we’re going to take care of every single need that you’re going to want to have taken care of,” Mr. Trump said, as he labeled Obamacare a “catastrophe.” President Trump: Obamacare is 'a catastrophe created exclusively by the Democrats in Congress' https://t.co/VC6XrrEADB — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) April 30, 2017 Among those on hand for the 100 day rally was Vice President Mike Pence, who told the cheering audience that President Trump was doing what he promised during the 2016 campaign. “Across the board, our new President is doing exactly what he said he would do,” the Vice President said. Before the event, Mr. Trump signed two more executive orders on trade, as he continued to follow through on his tough talk from before and after the election, vowing to do more to protect U.S. jobs at home from what he says are unfair practices by Canada, Mexico, and other nations. Many political reporters might not have been watching the Pennsylvania event with the President, as some were instead back at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner in Washington – and Mr. Trump was very happy to throw a few jabs at the news media – and remind everyone that he was not going to the event. President Trump slams the White House Correspondents' Dinner https://t.co/QbYS1KTBho — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) April 30, 2017 “The media deserves a big, fat, failing grade,” the President said, delighting the crowd, in an event that was much like one of his 2016 rallies. The event ended on that exact note, with the playing of the Rolling Stones song, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” a fan favorite from the campaign trail.
  • A woman was recently arrested for allegedly embezzling nearly $9,000 from a Broken Arrow Mazzio's. Police report Diana Pruett confessed to processing false refunds when customers used cash. She would then pocket the money. One resident we spoke to says Pruett is hurting the community by her actions. “It’s really sad when you feel like you can depend on the people that live in our community to be fair and honest,” the resident said.  “We’re all in this community together. “ She was discovered, when a manager noticed something suspicious with the number of returns and refunds at the store. Pruett was booked into the Tulsa County Jail and has since bonded out.
