Monday night:

    “Monday Night time Soccer” will sound totally different when it returns this season. The Hank Williams Jr. tune “All My Rowdy Pals Are Right here on Monday Night time” won’t be used this season, in line with Sports activities Enterprise Day by day, as ESPN determined it wouldn’t match throughout a season by which followers are largely not allowed to attend video games. The community hasn’t determined whether or not the tune will return after this season, when stadiums are hopefully crammed once more. Within the meantime, “Monday Night time Soccer” will as a substitute be kicked off by a model of Little Richard’s tune “Rip It Up,” with new instrumentals from a band known as Butcher Brown. The Giants host the Steelers at an empty MetLife Stadium within the first Monday night time sport of the season. This received’t be the primary time Williams Jr. has been...
    “Monday Night Football” will sound different when it returns this season. The Hank Williams Jr. song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night” will not be used this season, according to Sports Business Daily, as ESPN decided it wouldn’t fit during a season in which fans are mostly not allowed to attend games. The network hasn’t decided whether the song will return after this season, when stadiums are hopefully filled again. In the meantime, “Monday Night Football” will instead be kicked off by a version of Little Richard’s song “Rip It Up,” with new instrumentals from a band called Butcher Brown. The Giants host the Steelers at an empty MetLife Stadium in the first Monday night game of the season. This won’t be the first time Williams Jr. has been dropped by the primetime broadcast. After first using the song in 1989 — when MNF was...
    As daunting as the 8-2 beatdown they took from the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 Monday night was, the Islanders aren’t letting one loss in the Eastern Conference finals rattle them. This is the first time since the playoffs began in August that the Islanders are trailing in a series, but by focusing on the fact that a win in Game 2 Wednesday night would even the series 1-1, the Islanders are hoping they can make Monday’s debacle a distant memory. “Personally, I liked our attitude after the game last night,” Mathew Barzal said on a Zoom call Tuesday afternoon. “We knew it wasn’t acceptable, but at the same time, we know it’s a seven-game series and it’s the first to four. “We get [Wednesday’s] game and it’s a completely different series. That was kind of our immediate reaction.” That may be easier said than done, especially the way...
    The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air drama reboot lands two-season order at Peacock Nikola’s stock rockets after GM takes $2 billion equity stake, announces partnership ESPN won’t use Hank Williams Jr.’s Monday Night Fooball intro this year, switching to Little Richard’s “Rip It Up” instead For the second time in the last decade, ESPN is shifting away from Hank Williams Jr.’s “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night” as their Monday Night Football introduction. But this time, it’s about a lack of fans in stadiums rather than anything Williams Jr. himself said. In 2011, ESPN and Williams Jr. parted ways after he compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler, but they brought him and his theme song back in 2017. As John Ourand wrote at Sports Business Journal Tuesday, though, this year will see a change to a new version of Little Richard’s “Rip It Up,” with the rationale for the...
    According to Ringside News, WWE chairman Vince McMahon reportedly didn’t read the script for this week’s Monday Night Raw until right before the episode was set to go live. The report stated that the performers were pitched ideas from the writers before the chairman signed off. However, it took until 6.30 PM to get three matches confirmed for the program. This is also the reason why the promotion didn’t promote many matches prior to the show airing on the USA Network. While some bouts were confirmed later on in the day, the company was tight-lipped about plans for the most part. It also meant that the superstars didn’t have enough time to offer feedback in regard to their storylines and in-ring activities. Due to the hurried nature of the show, the performers had to work with what they were given following McMahon’s approval. The article revealed that McMahon was supposedly...

    The San Francisco Giants take pride in their balanced offensive success and Monday’s 4-2 series-clinching win over the Arizona Diamondbacks provided one of the best examples of why the lineup has turned the club into a legitimate playoff contender. A four-run sixth-inning rally against D’backs right-hander Zac Gallen, one of the best pitchers in the National League, started when the No. 7 hitter, Pablo Sandoval, and No. 9 hitter, Mauricio Dubón, grinded through tough plate appearances to earn walks. Their No. 8 hitter, Joey Bart, also drilled a single into the left center field gap as the bottom of the order set the table for the top to do damage. By the time the Giants took the lead on a two-run single up the middle, a No. 2 hitter in Darin Ruf who wasn’t even in the starting lineup was the hero of the inning. “You’re never going to know...

So when the Celtics forward took the court for Game 5 against the Raptors on Monday night, he wanted to honor his hometown legend. Brock passed away at the age of 81 on Sunday, and to honor him, Tatum had “R.I.P. Lou Brock” written on his sneakers for Monday night’s game. Tatum spoke of Brock’s legacy after Boston’s blowout win over Toronto, and what he meant to him growing up in St. Louis. “One of the best players ever, one of the best players to play for the Cardinals. I never got to see him play but I know what he meant to the organization and to the city,” said Tatum. “I just wanted to shed some light on that for the...

The warning started at 10 p.m. Monday and ends at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Winds are expected to be gusty Monday evening in both areas and those winds are expected to continue through Wednesday morning.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Nurses on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic were demanding changes Monday night, or else they said they would walk off the job. As CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar reported, the nurses rallied Monday night at the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical Center. They said they feel disrespected and are going on strike.

These nurses are unhappy with the status of their current contract, which expired in August, but was extended until September. The Illinois Nurses Assocation said they have sat at the table with hospital leadership 20 times beginning earlier this summer. One of...

    The Islanders have strayed from reflecting on the success they’ve had this postseason, but with the one-day turnaround to Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday, they don’t have the time to reminisce even if they wanted to. After 43 days in the Toronto bubble, the Islanders began their 2,000-plus mile trek across Canada to Edmonton on Sunday morning just a few hours removed from their Game 7 victory over the Flyers to advance to their first conference finals in 27 years. “When we started this, we said let’s play one series at a time and let’s see if we can get to Edmonton and then we worry about things when we get to Edmonton,” coach Barry Trotz said on a Zoom call Sunday before the team’s flight. “I think it’ll be beneficial [to change the scenery].

    On Friday, The Inquisitr reported that Vince McMahon has banned WWE superstars from engaging in third-party platforms. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, by way of Sportskeeda, Lana’s Instagram posts reportedly led to the decision. The report stated that Lana’s Bang Energy drink commercials that have filled her social media account in recent weeks were the “straw that broke the camels back.” Meltzer’s words suggested that officials weren’t happy with performers’ third-party ventures before then, but Lana’s advertisements prompted them to finally take action and instate the controversial edict. The commercials in question featured Lana promoting the drink and dancing. She wore bikinis in some of the videos, so it’s possible that officials have deemed the content too risque to be associated with. Lana recently signed a new contract, and its terms reportedly included her being allowed to focus on non-wrestling ventures, such as modelling and acting....

    The Patriot Prayer supporter killed in Portland Saturday night had cancelled his 40th birthday plans to go to the pro-Trump rally, according to reports.  Aaron 'Jay' Danielson, 39, is said to have been gunned down just before he got home as Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with Trump supporters who drove in a caravan through the city.  Joey Gibson, the leader of Patriot Prayer, said: 'He loved to go to demonstrations.'

    San Francisco Giants executive Farhan Zaidi admitted he considered trading for another left-handed bat to fortify the team’s lineup ahead of Monday’s trade deadline. The Giants didn’t end up making that move, but their lineup against right-handed pitchers may improve down the stretch anyway. If Alex Dickerson stays this hot, he could be the difference-making run-producer the Giants need to sneak into the postseason. Dickerson went 4-for-5 with three home runs and a double in the club’s 23-5 win over the Rockies on Tuesday and carried over momentum from Sunday’s game when he homered and singled in the go-ahead run in a 4-1 win. Dickerson opened the year in a platoon in left field with Hunter Pence and has performed well below league average, but the Giants learned how streaky of a hitter Dickerson can be when he carried the offense through the month of July last summer during an...

    When Aaron Boone got past the first four spots in the lineup, it was apparent Aaron Hicks wasn’t starting Monday night’s game against the Rays at Yankee Stadium. Hicks left the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader sweep of the Mets due to cramps in each calf. However, Boone said that wasn’t why the switch-hitting center fielder was held out of Monday’s lineup. “He is good to go and playing the doubleheader he was going to have one of these next several days off so just felt like coming out of the doubleheader and coming out of the cramping I felt like it was today,’’ said Boone, who used Hicks as a pinch hitter in a 5-3 loss and watched him beat the shift with a single in the ninth inning. When discussing Hicks, his injury history can’t be ignored. Since 2013, when he was with the Twins, Hicks has been...

    The CEO of Michael Bloomberg's political data and tech agency warned in an interview that will air Monday of mass chaos on Election Night as it appears Donald Trump is poised for another victory. Josh Mendelsohn, CEO of Hawkfish, revealed the firm has a 'red mirage' model, which predicts the results come November. 'The reason we talk about a red mirage is in fact because we believe that on election night we are going to see Donald Trump in a stronger position than the reality actually is,' Mendelsohn told Axios on HBO in an interview that will air Monday evening. A preview with Mendelsohn's comment, which he told to Axios' White House and politics editor Margaret Talev, was published earlier in the day Monday. He claimed that the unconventional factors for Election Day this year, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, are setting the stage for potential chaos. Mendelsohn...
    After almost 5 months closed, due to the restrictions established by Miami-Dade County against the coronavirus, this Monday, August 31, the Magic City Casino reopened its doors. Sandra Rodríguez, publicist for Magic City Casino, said that the “community was very happy to be able to enter the building again because they always have a lot of fun.” Now with a new schedule from 10 in the morning to 9:30 at night, the casino requires compliance with a series of protection and health measures. “You always have to wear a mask, they have to go through a thermo scanner that reads the temperature”, explains Rodríguez.

    According to TalkSport, Vince McMahon is very high on Keith Lee and has plans to give the superstar a significant push on the main roster. The WWE Monday Night Raw newcomer defeated Randy Orton at last night’s Payback pay-per-view, and it looks set to have been a star-making performance for the former NXT Champion. According to one of the outlet’s sources, McMahon tasked the veteran with making the hopeful look good in the match. They also noted that Lee picking up the victory was no small feat, given that “The Viper” has received his own push in recent months. “Imagine how high Vince has to be on someone to have Randy Orton put them over clean as a whistle. Orton, doing the best work of his career, wants to help create that next generation of stars. He gets it.” The source also stated that McMahon wants to “push [Lee] to...

Sitting 3.5 games out of first now, a three-game sweep over the Rays would bring the Yankees within striking distance, making September baseball as interesting as ever. Dominance in that upcoming series would cast effect on the Yankees returning to a “winning spirit,” outfielder Aaron Hicks said on Sunday night. “It’s just very important for us to get wins, especially with the Rays coming in, that’s a team we need to beat,” Hicks said,...
    DENVER (CBS4) – A summer cold front followed by a vigorous upper-level storm system should produce summer snow over Colorado’s higher mountains Monday night. In many cases, it could be the first accumulating snow of the season. The storm system will move from northern Idaho to southwest Wyoming during the day on Monday and then pass directly over Colorado Monday night. The best chance for snow will be after 10 p.m. above 10,000 feet in the mountains along and south Interstate 70. Any accumulation will be minor and generally range from a dusting to 1 inch. (source: CBS) Snow in late August is not necessarily uncommon although many years the first snow waits until September in the Colorado high country. The only month of year when snow is extremely rare in the mountains is July. Most mountain towns such as Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen, and Telluride are below 10,000 feet and...

    The law of averages says an Oklahoma City Thunder starter will make a 3-pointer relatively quickly on Monday night. Someone better, or else. Houston — which famously wasted a chance to reach the NBA Finals by missing 27 consecutive 3-pointers in Game 7 of the 2018 Western Conference finals — is a game away from the second round of these playoffs, after watching the Thunder suddenly forget how to shoot on Saturday night. The Rockets will take a 3-2 series lead into Game 6 against the Thunder in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, on Monday night. “We’ll go back to the drawing board, see what we did well, see what we didn’t do well,” Thunder guard Chris Paul said. Houston rolled in Game 5, winning 114-80 on a night where the Thunder missed 14 consecutive 3-pointers in one 19-minute stretch during which the Rockets outscored them 55-25 — basically the entire...
    Storm worry gives way to nothing but blue skies come Sunday, a local weather expert said. Skies that cleared out late Saturday "set us for a beautiful Sunday of sunshine, low humidity and highs in the 70s" throughout much of New Jersey, meteorologist Joe Cioffi said. Humidity will be higher at the Jersey Shore, but temperatures will be much the same, he said. "High pressure over Eastern Canada will make for a cool Sunday night into Monday morning with lows in the mid 50s to lower 60s," Cioffi said. "Monday will start with some sunshine but we will see clouds increasing during the afternoon," he added. "The high is moving out and a weak low to the south could push up some rain here Monday night into early Tuesday morning," Cioffi said. "Monday’s highs again will be just in the 70s."

    The Star Tribune’s Liz Navratil writes: “As they make decisions about how to protect the city during a summer of unrest, Minneapolis’ elected leaders are trying to balance the concerns of residents who want a larger law enforcement presence to prevent rioting and looting against the pain that presence triggers in historically overpoliced communities. … Frey declared a temporary emergency Wednesday night after crowds gathered on Nicollet Mall following false social media reports that police had killed a Black man.

    Kelly Stewart Harcourt, daughter of late actor Jimmy Stewart, blasted a Republican National Convention speaker for suggesting President Donald Trump shared qualities with the character her father played in the classic movie "It's a Wonderful Life." “In her speech at the G.O.P. convention Monday night, Natalie Harp, a cancer survivor, made reference to the film ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ comparing Donald Trump to George Bailey, the main character in the film, played by my father, Jimmy Stewart,” Harcourt wrote in a letter to the opinion section of The New York Times on Thursday. She continued, “Given that this beloved American classic is about decency, compassion, sacrifice and a fight against corruption, our family considers Ms. Harp’s analogy to be the height of hypocrisy and dishonesty.” JAMES STEWART WAS 'APPROACHED SEVERAL TIMES' TO PURSUE SENATE RUN BUT CHOSE TO STAY OUT OF POLITICS Harp, who is an advisory board member for the Trump campaign, said on...
    This is the Kenosha police officer accused of shooting Jacob Blake at least eight times in the back, as the father-of-six is now paralyzed from the waist down after his body was riddled with bullets, DailyMail.com can reveal.  Officer Rusten Sheskey, 31, has been identified as the officer who is seen on video grabbing Blake's shirt from behind and opening fire on Blake, 29, in front of his three young sons on Sunday night in Wisconsin. Luke Courtier, 27, was also at the scene during the shooting.  While Courtier only joined the Kenosha Police Department in 2016, Sheskey is a seven-and-a-half-year veteran of the force. He previously worked for the University of Wisconsin Parkside's campus police for three years. According to records, Sheskey makes just under $70,000 a year and was disciplined in March 2017 for a violation of the force's Safe Operation of Department Vehicles, stemming from an incident in...

    The Republican National Convention's second night, headlined by first lady Melania Trump, drew a larger audience than the opening night's broadcast. The GOP's speaker lineup on Tuesday pulled 18 million viewers between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., according to early Nielsen Media Research data. A week ago, Nielsen initially found Democrats attracted 18.2 million people, but that figure was later revised to 19.2 million once all the firm's numbers were crunched. "We need my husband to be our president and commander in chief for four more years," Trump told a small crowd gathered in the White House's Rose Garden on Tuesday. "I believe that we need my husband's leadership now more than ever." On Monday, 17 million viewers turned on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News, or MSNBC to watch the Republican confab's opening night, a mostly virtual affair, during the corresponding time period. Last week, 19.7 million people switched...
    Kenosha business owners are looking for answers after multiple businesses were looted and vandalized by large groups of mobs during Monday night riots.  “I just don’t understand how something like this would happen,”said Daniel Esposito, owner of four businesses in Kenosha, Wisconsin. All four of Esposito’s businesses were vandalized and looted during Sunday night riots. Family and friends of Esposito could be seen sweeping and cleaning up broken glass on the rainy Monday morning in Kenosha. “Our society is really disappointing, what happened to being kind to people,” Esposito told the Daily Caller. Cars on the lot of Esposito’s used car dealership business were damaged by rocks and baseball bats. “Total carnage, I just don’t understand why something like this would happen” says Daniel Esposito, owner of 4 buildings that were vandalized and looted lastnight in #Kenosha pic.twitter.com/c9EfvN16ku — Jorge Ventura Media (@VenturaReport) August 25, 2020 “It’s emotionally...
    U.S. first lady Melania Trump is telling American voters Tuesday night why they should re-elect her husband, President Donald Trump, delivering a key address at the Republican National Convention from the White House Rose Garden she recently redesigned.  The first lady, an émigré from Slovenia and now a naturalized U.S. citizen, has been an infrequent participant in the U.S. political scene and has rarely accompanied her husband to political rallies.  But an aide to Melania Trump, chief of staff Stephanie Grisham, said in advance of the first lady’s nationally televised address that, “Every word in this speech is from her.”  Other key speakers are set to voice their support for the president as well, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has prompted a controversy by speaking to the Republican convention on Trump’s behalf from Israel while he is on a diplomatic mission to the Jewish state.  Typically, the top U.S. diplomat has not played a role in U.S. elections and has been viewed as apolitically...
    President Trump on Tuesday called on Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers to quickly put an end to the violent riots that have rocked the city of Kenosha in the aftermath of the police shooting of Jacob Blake. The president, in a tweet, also urged Evers to call in The National Guard — although the governor had already done so on Monday. “Governor should call in the National Guard in Wisconsin. It is ready, willing, and more than able. End problem FAST!” the president tweeted. A total of 150 National Guard members were deployed to the city Monday ahead of the second night of unrest that saw fires set to several buildings and confrontations between law enforcement and police, the Kenosha News reported. By Tuesday, at the request of Repulican lawmakers, Evers called in reinforcements from the National Guard, the newspaper reported. No one was reported injured on Monday, said Sgt. David...
    President Donald Trump often loves to tout his TV ratings. But even he might have trouble spinning the numbers coming out of the first night of the Republican National Convention. Monday’s prime-time festivities attracted a significantly smaller audience than the Democrats did last week, with viewership down on every major broadcast and cable network except the Fox News Channel. An average of 17 million viewers tuned in for the opening night of the convention, according to Nielsen, which based its stats on 11 channels. That fell short of the 19.7 million who turned out for the first night of the Democratic National Convention. Perhaps more alarming for the GOP: Monday’s viewership was a sharp drop of about 26 percent from Night 1 in 2016. That year, the Republicans drew an average of 23 million viewers to their opening night, according to Nielsen. The numbers once again demonstrated a polarization in...
    By DAVID BAUDER, AP Media Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Up is down, down is up. President Donald Trump thanked CNN Tuesday for its Republican convention coverage, while Fox News heard complaints from some viewers that it wasn't showing enough. Trump's tweet that he was “very appreciative” to CNN for showing the vast majority of the Republicans' opening night program was also likely a coded message to Fox, the network of choice for many of the president's fans. The numbers illustrate why he cares: 45% of people following coverage of the convention's last hour on the top six networks Monday were watching Fox News Channel, the Nielsen company said. Overall, 17 million people watched the final hour of convention coverage on all networks Monday, down from 19.7 million who saw Democratic candidate Joe Biden's first night last week. Fox's audience was up 238%, but Democratic convention viewership beat Republicans on...
    Fewer TV viewers tuned into the first night of the Republican National Convention than watched the opening night of the Democratic National Convention last week.  Nielsen found, according to The Los Angeles Times, that night No. 1 of the RNC averaged 15.9 million viewers, while last Monday's DNC averaged 18.7 million.  The audience for both political conventions, which are being held 'virtually' due to the coronavirus pandemic, was down 28 per cent from the 2016 coronations of Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.  Former first lady Michelle Obama (left) and South Carolina Sen.

    Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) on Tuesday declared a state of emergency and has ordered the increase of National Guard presence following two nights of riots in Kenosha and Madison in the wake of a police-involved shooting of an African-American man. WKOW reports: Executive Order #86 proclaims a state of emergency in Wisconsin, directs state agencies to continue assisting the state response, and calls to state active duty additional elements of the Wisconsin National Guard to support first responders and protect critical infrastructure and cultural institutions.

Evers today announced he is authorizing increased Wisconsin National Guard support for Kenosha County to 250 members and will continue to adjust to meet local needs. Evers’s directive follows a second night of violent unrest, fires, and looting in Kenosha, where cell phone...

    CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — President Trump, a former reality TV star, likes to tout his ability to pull an audience. But his appearances during the 2020 Republican National Convention's first night didn't help his party outperform Democrats, at least by that metric. Roughly 15.8 million people turned on their TVs between 10 p.m and 11 p.m Monday to watch the Republican convention's opening night, according to early Nielsen Media Research data. A week ago, preliminary Nielsen numbers found 18.7 million people tuned into the Democratic convention via ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC between 10 p.m and 11:15 p.m. The Democrats' four-day program, culminating in Joe Biden accepting the party's 2020 presidential nominee, included former first lady Michelle Obama last Monday. Her figures were later revised to 19.7 million viewers. The Biden campaign talked up how an additional 10.2 million people watched last Monday's speaker line-up online. Trump's...
    Rankings for the primary night time of the 2020 Republican Nationwide Conference trailed the Democrats’ opening festivities — with far much less folks tuning into each digital celebrations general in comparison with the in-person, high-energy extravaganzas of 2016. Networks CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox Information, MSNBC and CNN averaged 15.9 million viewers on Monday in the course of the overlapping hour of GOP kick-off protection starting at 10 p.m., in line with Nielsen figures revealed by the Los Angeles Instances. That determine was 17 % larger for night time one of many Democratic Nationwide Conference, which drew in 18.7 million folks on these channels. Fox Information was by far essentially the most watched cable channel on Monday night, pulling in 7 million viewers for Republicans and besting liberal rivals CNN, ABC and NBC which adopted with 2 million, 1.9 million and 1.7 million respectively. However each of these general figures...
    Keith Lee makes his WWE Monday Night Raw debut, setting stage for PPV match against Randy Orton. Coming out of SummerSlam there was quite a bit to look forward to on the latest edition on Monday Night Raw.

The main event featured a tag team match between Rey and Dominick Mysterio against Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy.

    Heavily armed civilians have been filmed protecting businesses in Kenosha after arsonists set buildings alight, torching much of the black business district Monday.  In footage taken by a local reporter, a small group of men can be seen carrying rifles and wearing combat gear as they protect local shops. They deny they are part of a militia.  The Wisconsin city became the nation's latest flashpoint in a summer of racial unrest after the police shooting black man Jacob Blake, 29, in the back Sunday. The shooting occurred three months after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked nationwide protests against police brutality and racism. One of the armed men in the footage taken Monday night says: 'They're destroying their own neighborhood. It's not the civilians. Go f*** up the government that just killed your man. Don't f*** up your neighbors. 'I'm on your side but you can't burn down your...
    By Helen Coster (Reuters) - A total of 15.8 million people watched the first night of the Republican National Convention on Monday, according to early Nielsen Media Research, tracking an event held mostly virtually because of the coronavirus pandemic. That number reflects the audience across six TV networks between 10 p.m and 11 p.m. EDT on Monday. It does not include online and streaming viewers. An updated figure, which will include viewers of additional networks, is expected later on Tuesday. (Reporting by Helen Coster; Editing by Leslie Adler) Copyright 2020 Thomson Reuters.
    Kenosha, Wisconsin — Anger over the shooting of a Black man by police spilled into the streets of Kenosha for a second night Monday, with police again firing tear gas at hundreds of protesters who defied a curfew, threw bottles and shot fireworks at law enforcement guarding the courthouse. Many fires were set, reports CBS Milwaukee affiliate WDJT-TV. The southeastern Wisconsin city became the nation's latest flashpoint in a summer of racial unrest after cellphone footage of police shooting Jacob Blake – apparently in the back, as he leaned into his SUV while his three children sat in the vehicle – circulated widely on social media Sunday. The 29-year-old was hospitalized in serious condition.   Multiple fires continue to burn in Kenosha overnight as we enter the second day of protests. Street lights along Sheridan Rd are down and businesses along this stretch are still smoldering. @CBS58 @PauleenLe for the latest at 430am. pic.twitter.com/OUnI87BMWJ—...
    (CNN)The sign adorning the podium at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium -- where speaker after speaker addressed the nation on the first night of the Republican National Convention -- said it all. On top were the words "Trump 2020." Below them: "The GOP Convention."Monday night's festivities were a remarkable demonstration of how the Republican Party at this moment is less a collection of like-minded people gathered around a set of common principles and much more a cult of personality built around the man one GOP delegate called "Donald J. President." Virtually every speaker -- Sen. Tim Scott was a notable exception -- dedicated at least some chunk of their speech to fawning praise of the President, often in terms that would make the average person blush.I went through the transcripts of the speeches delivered on Monday night and pulled out some -- though not all! -- of the incredible language...

    Police used tear gas to subdue protesters in the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin Monday as people took to the streets for the second straight night after the shooting of a Black man by police on Sunday.    Despite a dusk-to-dawn curfew, protesters gathered Monday night, confronting law enforcement officers in riot gear outside the county courthouse, blocks from where Jacob Blake was shot on Sunday in an encounter with police caught on video. Police countered protesters with tear gas, shortly after the 8:00 pm curfew took effect Monday. Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers called out the National Guard Monday to help keep the peace. In video posted online, Blake was seen walking to his vehicle and being followed by two police officers with their guns drawn. As he entered the driver's side of the car, he was shot in the back with at least seven gunshots heard on the recording. A...
    (CNN)Republicans will gather for the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday to continue to make the case for Donald Trump to serve as president for four more years.After adopting a "Land of Promise" theme on Monday, the convention will move on to the theme "Land of Opportunity" on Tuesday. Republicans are doubling down on their message to voters: Joe Biden painted a grim portrait of America during last week's Democratic convention, but the Trump presidency has brought in and will continue to usher in prosperity and opportunity for all Americans. While the RNC held their in-person roll call in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Monday before moving on to speeches at an audience-less auditorium in Washington, DC, Tuesday's remarks are not expected to include another large, in-person convention event. Like Monday night's speeches in Washington, most of Tuesday's speeches are scheduled to be taped from an empty auditorium...
    After avoiding a repeat lightning storm, fire crews received more fortuitous weather conditions Monday night into Tuesday morning as they began to get a handle on the trio of historic blazes burning around the Bay Area. Since they broke out a week ago, the three fires have combined to burn nearly 800,000 acres, destroy more than 1,000 structures and force tens of thousands to flee. Fire crews have recovered six bodies, with more people reported missing. Two of the blazes already rank as the second- and third-largest in state history. The CZU Lightning Complex is the smallest of the three fires but had also been the least contained. It had burned 78,869 acres and was 17% contained Tuesday morning, up from 13% Monday night. One Santa Cruz County man was dead and seven others were reported missing, and 330 structures were destroyed. The LNU Lightning Complex has been the deadliest...
    A rioter in Kenosha, Wisconsin, brandished a gun and pointed it directly in the face of Blaze Media reporter Elijah Schaffer Monday night — while he was filming. The harrowing moment encapsulates the intense lawlessness of the current scene in Kenosha, where rioters have taken to the streets and set the city ablaze in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old black man, over the weekend. "HOLY SH*#: while interviewing this #BLM rioter in Kinosha [sic] he pulls out a real pistol and points it at my camera while explaining what we would do to cops if they rolled up on us right now," Schaffer wrote on Twitter. "It's been a while since I had a gun pointed at me even if it was just to make a point," he added. HOLY SH*#: while interviewing this #BLM rioter in...

    By Stephen Maturen KENOSHA, Wis.

Protesters defied a dusk-to-dawn curfew on Monday night as they confronted law enforcement officers in riot gear outside the county courthouse blocks away from where Jacob Blake was gunned down on Sunday in an encounter with police caught on video. Blake, 29, survived the shooting and was listed in stable condition following surgery, his father told news media on Monday.
