White House Nazi enabler Jeff Sessions, the man who enacted the new administration-plotted "zero tolerance" policy that jails asylum-seekers, separates them from their children, and places the children in separate detention camps as "deterrent" to future refugees—and the "deterrent" part is both admitted by multiple members of the administration and is considered, by international treaty, a human rights crime—defended his administration from comparisons to Nazi Germany by going on the Fox News show of a prominent white supremacist icon and explaining the difference. “It’s a real exaggeration,” he said to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham. “In Nazi Germany, they were keeping the Jews from leaving the country, but this is a serious matter.

For workers in “production and nonsupervisory” positions, the value of the average paycheck has declined in the past year. For those workers, average “real wages” — a measure of pay that takes inflation into account — fell from $22.62 in May 2017 to $22.59 in May 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said. This pool of workers includes those in manufacturing and construction jobs, as well as all “nonsupervisory” workers in service industries such health care or fast food. The group accounts for about four-fifths of the privately employed workers in America, according to BLS. Without adjustin…
