Instead, Pompeo promoted his own narrowly-defined idea of human rights, which was formalized...

The Black bishop who delivered the sermon at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has written a book where he detailed his experience at the royal wedding. “After I preached the sermon, I just remember it was like I could feel slaves around the place,” Bishop Michael Curry wrote. “I don’t mean to be spooky, but it was like their voice was somehow heard that day. I included one of their songs, ‘There is a Balm in Gilead.’” Bishop Michael Curry gives an address during the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018 in Windsor, England.

    The Deets is a weekday morning dose of commentary — delivered at 7 a.m. — from sports columnist Dieter Kurtenbach that wraps up everything important in the world of sports and looks forward to another crazy day ahead. A challenge like this was inevitable, though I’m sure the San Francisco 49ers didn’t think it’d come so soon. The 49ers entered the season with one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. A preponderance of injuries has left San Francisco in a position that’s considerably less impressive. The terrible luck and subsequent scramble to add players ahead of Sunday’s game against the Giants highlights an unfavorable truth: maintaining excellence is more difficult than achieving it in the first place. And there might only be one effective route for that kind of maintenance — elite quarterback play. With Jimmy Garoppolo still expected to miss...
    WEST HOLLYWOOD (KABC) -- In the age of COVID-19, drive-in movie theaters are making a comeback. The iconic Mel's drive-in on Sunset Boulevard is bringing the movie magic to West Hollywood at their new drive-in movie nights, which combines their restaurant with the big screen experience.On Sunday nights, Mel's is taking customers on a nostalgic trip to another era."I had to come because I love 'Grease' and I love the 1950s. I even have a whole bunch of outfits," said Mikayla Pena.The family-owned restaurant is bringing back a tradition started more than 70 years ago: carhop service."My grandfather had Mel's Drive-in, it was a carhop restaurant from 1947 up until about the seventies. Things changed and carhop kinda went away and I brought it back," said Colton Weiss.Weiss says having carhops deliver orders is fun for customers and it has helped the chain survive during the coronavirus crisis."When we couldn't...
    ORANGE (CBSLA) — The firefighter who died in the El Dorado Fire was escorted Tuesday to a mortuary in Orange by an honor guard from the U.S. Forest Service and members of the California Highway Patrol. Charles Edward Morton, 39, was a squad boss with the Big Bear Interagency Hotshots, a team of elite specialists that works in the toughest, most remote areas of wildfires.

    Kit Harington has revealed he was brought up in a 'gender fluid' environment in his childhood and feels many men have an emotional 'blockage'. The actor, 33, told how he grew up idolising his mother, playwright Deborah Jane Catesby, who eschewed gender roles with him and his brother John. Speaking to The Telegraph, he said: 'I asked for a Mighty Max and she bought me a Polly Pocket. I asked for an Action Man and I got a doll – it was very gender fluid from the word go. And I went with it.'

    Thousands of starfish washed ashore Navarre Beach after Hurricane Sally ripped through Florida last week. Residents discovered the creatures Saturday morning, along with other animals like clams, worms and an oyster toadfish. Biology experts say these marine animals live in the inner tidal zone of the ocean and the hurricane shifted currents that left them stranded on land. The tropical storm hit September 16, sinking a number of boats and docks, along with releasing intense rain that flooded parts of Navarre with more than 10 feet of water. Scroll down for videos  Thousands of starfish washed ashore Navarre Beach after Hurricane Sally ripped through Florida last week.

    The pre-eminent health care organization in a COVID-19 hotspot is sponsoring an indoor country and western concert that will not require masks and has not yet decided whether it will impose social distancing. And the nonprofit Sanford Health of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is presenting the Oct. 24 event in conjunction with the state’s governor, Kristi Noem. She endorsed the Sturgis motorcycle rally last month, where nearly half a million people gathered, largely without masks or social distancing, for 10 days before returning home, which a report by a team of economists with the Center for Health Economics & Policy Studies at San Diego State University estimates to have resulted in more than 260,000 COVID-19 cases. She will now be hosting the annual Governor’s Pheasant Hunt, which this year will include a musical event. With regard to attendance and therefore likely infections, the Chris Young concert Noem and Sanford are...
    At just 17 years old, Justin Duggar is officially the youngest in his family to enter into a courtship. In a preview clip from Tuesday night's episode of Counting On obtained by Us Weekly, the teenager reveals that he is 'now in an official relationship' with 19-year-old Claire Spivey from Texas. For the Duggar family, a courtship announcement nearly always means that an engagement is in the near future — but in this case, the super-young lovebirds may need to wait until just turns 18 on November 15 before they officially tie the knot.

    Whoopi Goldberg promptly threw to commercial Monday when her colleagues on The View were on the verge of a major fight over the fallout of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing. The show started its week by addressing Ginsburg’s legacy on the Supreme Court, and the brewing political fight as President Donald Trump and his Republican allies prepare to fast-track a nominee to take her place on the bench. When Meghan McCain got her turn to chime in, she acknowledged the accusations of hypocrisy flung at Republicans over their conduct with Merrick Garland in 2016, but nonetheless spoke in favor of having a full court in session in the event that the 2020 election is legally contested. After that, McCain brought up the Brett Kavanugh hearings by calling them a game-changer among Republicans and said, “I was completely radicalized by the experience of watching him testify.” “There were accusations...
    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City The New York Giants announced on Monday afternoon that star running back Saquon Barkley indeed has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2020 season.  Barkley initially suffered the injury during the second quarter of New York’s 17-13 loss to the Chicago Bears. He bounced a run to the outside toward the right sideline before being taken down and writhing in agony in front of the Chicago bench.  Initial tests deemed that it was a torn ACL, but an MRI on Monday confirmed the injury that brought his season to an end. He will undergo surgery “in the near future,” according to the team. After being limited to just six yards on 15 carries in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Barkley had 28 yards on four carries...
    Joe Biden's presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and their joint fundraising committee had a $141 million cash advantage over President Trump, the RNC and their joint fundraising committees heading into September. According to a Biden campaign official, the former vice president and Democrats had $466 million cash on hand at the end of last month. The Trump campaign and Republicans had $325 million cash on hand according to the president's campaign. The newly revealed cash figures continues to show how the president's cash advantage leading into the general election season has evaporated heading into the final stretch of the 2020 campaign season. In March, Mr. Trump, along with his entities had a nearly $200 million advantage over Biden and the DNC combined as Democrats wrapped up a crowded primary season. Now the cash advantage has shifted toward Democrats. These numbers do not include the massive influx of cash Democrats...
    On September 15, the University of Colorado Boulder, in partnership with Boulder County Public Health, issued a two-week stay-at-home order, after almost 400 positive cases connected with CU were tallied in recent weeks. The news got worse on September 18, when Governor Jared Polis revealed that Boulder now has a 16 percent positivity rate for cases of the novel coronavirus — by far the worst figure in the state — owing mainly to a series of safety setbacks at CU. "That's the kind of positivity rate we see in areas with major outbreaks across the country," Polis noted, calling the number "rather alarming." And some readers are alarmed, as they noted in their comments on recent CU stories. Says Bonnie: CU should have never brought students back. Adds Gretchen:  Some of the seniors I worked with in a sorority at DU are facing expulsion for a house...

    ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. (AP) — Officials in Virginia's Isle of Wight County have delayed voting on relocating a Confederate Monument. They voted instead on Thursday to appoint a task force to bring recommendations for what to do with the memorial. WAVY-TV reported that the task force will investigate potential relocation sites as well as how the monument could be contextualized at its current location. The memorial has stood at the entrance to the county courthouse complex since 1905. The 10-member task force will include members from the county’s NAACP chapter, historical society, chamber of commerce and the board’s citizen group. “I don’t feel like any rush to do anything without allowing the citizens to be apart of the reasoning together,” said Supervisor William McCarty, who brought forward the task force idea. Supervisor Rudolph Jefferson cast the lone vote against the idea. He is the only Black man on the...
    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island officials have found toxins in soil brought in by a contractor building highway interchange in Providence and have ordered its removal. Samples taken from the soil at the construction site at the interchange between Routes 6 and 10 contained elevated levels of contaminants, Rhode Island officials said on Wednesday. The Massachusetts-based contractor Barletta Heavy Division brought in the contaminated soil as backfill from another project, officials said. A spokesperson for the state's Department of Transportation said it had ordered the contractors to remove all contaminated soil and dispose of it at a licensed facility. Officials are also barring the contractor from bringing in any additional soil from its other projects to the site. The $410 million project includes repairs to seven bridges, according to the Department of Transportation website. Work started in 2018. Local 57 of the International Union of Operating Engineers, whose members...
    Diljit Dosanjh, the actor-singer from the heartlands of India, is speaking up for rights of the farmers in the country. He posted on Twitter about saving farmers and protesting against ‘Kisan virodhi bill’. One Twitter user asked him to not spread ‘fake news’ and enquired if he knew the points that the farmers are against. Diljit had an answer. He replied pointing out three important concerns that the farmers have. Farmer Bills: What Are The 3 Legislations Brought by Modi Government? Why Are Farmers Protesting? Know All About These. Diljit said that farmers don’t have the power to decide the rate. Secondly, there is no minimum support price decided (MSP). Lastly, farmers don’t have storage so the limit doesn’t matter. “We Expect FARMERS to Feed the Nation But they can’t decide on the Rate,” he wrote.

    For new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who wanted the U.S. Postal Service to operate more efficiently, it seemed like an obvious fix: Just run the trucks on time. So in July he ordered drivers to start leaving post offices and distribution centers exactly on schedule and curtailed extra trips to pick up any mail that missed earlier cutoffs. The stricter deadlines sparked far less public outcry than the removal of more than 700 high-speed sorting machines at mail processing facilities around the country — but they were far more disruptive to the U.S. mail system, according to a Times investigation. Weeks-long delays began to ripple through a system already reeling from COVID-19 absences and a surge in package delivery during the pandemic, shaking Americans’ faith in one of the country’s most popular services and raising concerns about how the Postal Service will handle mail-in ballots in November....
    SEATTLE mayor Jenny Durkan could reportedly face charges for failing to clear the "autonomous zone" set up by Black Lives Matter protesters in the city earlier this year.

    Black Lives Matter activists continue to rage in the streets and ­inside our institutions, demanding police reforms. Many of the strategies they advocate have already been tested in the Pacific Northwest, where I live. They have proved disastrous. Consider Seattle, where it’s rare for most criminals to see meaningful jail time. City Attorney Pete Holmes, a Democrat, fails to charge on half the criminal referrals he receives, because he doesn’t believe jail works for many offenders. When he does move forward, and a suspect isn’t already in custody (many usually aren’t) he declines charges in 65 percent of the cases. Even when the suspects do make it to court, prosecutors downgrade charges. Then, instead of sending offenders to jail, judges usually push them into voluntary programs to address the “underlying causes” of their criminal ­activity. The real-world result? The offender doesn’t follow through and ends up recommitting. A 2019 report...
    US govt: Upcoming WeChat ban wont target its users The Supper Club Is Far from Over Dustin May brought Fernando Tatis Jr. to his knees with a perfectly placed 98 mph pitch We’ve grown so accustomed over the past decade to seeing big-league pitchers consistently throwing around 100 mph. It seems like most teams have a bullpen full guys who can throw 96, 97, 98 mph. So, it’s hardly worth getting carried away about velocity. © Provided by For The Win But for Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Dustin May, it’s not just his velocity that has wowed MLB fans (and players) this season: It’s his ability to make baseballs seemingly violate the laws of physics. Earlier in the season, May struck out Padres slugger Manny Machado with a gravity-defying 99 mph two-seamer. Fast forward to Wednesday, and May was back to picking on the Padres’ talented lineup with a...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said on Wednesday that Americans are going to grapple with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from the Chinese coronavirus, calling the pandemic a “trauma” on the country just one week after blaming the virus outbreak in New York on President Trump. “COVID was a trauma for this country,” Cuomo said on Wednesday, likening it to “being at war.” “I don’t know that we’ve even fully appreciated all of the effects of the trauma that we’ve gone through. There’s going to be PTSD from Covid,” the governor said. Experts have warned of the effects not just of the virus itself but society’s response, including sweeping lockdowns that forced people into isolation and shuttered the economy, causing millions to lose their jobs over the summer as they remained in solitude. Several studies raised concerns about the potentially devastating impact of lockdowns on people’s mental health, rather than the...
    The intense uncomfortable side effects that prompted AstraZeneca to pause its coronavirus vaccine trial doubtless weren’t brought on by the shot itself, in keeping with paperwork posted on-line by the Oxford College. Security evaluations had been carried out when volunteers within the British drugmaker’s international vaccine trials — which it’s growing with researchers at Oxford — developed unexplained neurological signs, together with limb weak point or “modified sensation,” in keeping with the doc outlining participant info. “After impartial evaluation, these diseases had been both thought-about unlikely to be related to the vaccine or there was inadequate proof to say for sure that the diseases had been or weren’t associated to the vaccine,” the doc stated. The doc is the primary indication from AstraZeneca and Oxford as to the character of the thriller sickness reported final week, by which a UK participant had a severe facet impact considered a uncommon...

    The wildfires engulfing the West Coast have become so dire in Oregon that state police have established a new type of emergency response: a mobile morgue.  The state-run facility in Linn County, about two hours outside of Portland, will be operated by a 75-member regional response team that is still searching incinerated buildings for survivors and victims.  While the wildfires have impacted 10 states across the country, Oregon has been among the hardest hit, with more than 30 active fires, at least 900,000 acres burned, eight deaths and at least 50 people unaccounted for. More than 10 percent of the state’s population has been forced to evacuate and state officials have begged for a presidential disaster declaration. “One week into this wildfire crisis, our state has been pushed to its limits,” Oregon Gov. Kate Brown tweeted on Monday evening.  But the death toll is expected to rise as recovery...
    By The Associated Press Recent editorials of statewide and national interest from Idaho newspapers: Treasurer Ellsworth can outwit Speaker Bedke The Lewiston Tribune Sept. 13 Memo to: State Treasurer Julie Ellsworth. Subject: Taxpayer stewardship. Status: House Speaker Scott Bedke, R-Oakley has accused you of making a “ridiculous” “false claim” and a “gross misstatement of fact” — in other words, lying — because you say his plans to kick you out of your state Capitol quarters to make office space for House members who will be in Boise for only 90 days a year will cost $10 million. As Betsy Russell of the Idaho Press reported during the Labor Day weekend, the speaker may have you on the details. Sure, the 2019 plan — contained in House Bill 289 — spoke of spending $10.6 million. But that also included $1.96 million to repurchase a nearby bank building the state sold off...
    A drug peddler arrested in Goa has been brought to Mumbai on a transit remand by the Narcotics Control Bureau, an official said here on Tuesday. Chris Costa will be examined further in the drug case related to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

    Over the weekend, David Atkins wrote a piece titled, “To Save Democracy, Democrats Must Hold Trump Officials Accountable.” He ended by noting that “people have to go to jail for what has happened, or there probably won’t be a democracy worth saving for long.” Reaching a similar conclusion, Jonathan Chait has a piece in the latest edition of New York Magazine titled, “Lock Him Up? For the Republic to survive Trump’s presidency, he must be tried for his crimes. Even if that sparks a constitutional crisis of its own.” Trump’s reversals of Obama-era police reforms and his open contempt for the law send a signal about whom the law constrains and whom it protects. The fashioning of a more equal society means sending a different message: The rule of law must bind everyone, just as it protects everyone. A world where the power of the state can be brought to bear against a person...
    KWQC Jerry Burns' mugshot and a family photo of Michelle Martinko. Over 40 years ago, teenager Michelle Martinko was stabbed to death outside a mall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

    SAN FRANCISCO —  The West Coast had just experienced a record-shattering heat wave when news came last week of a rare late-summer snowstorm in Colorado. To those still sweltering in California, Oregon and Washington, it sounded like a dream come true. In fact, it was an omen of a greater disaster to come. As the blast of cold air in the Rocky Mountains sank, it searched for an escape — the lands of hotter weather farther west, toward the Pacific Coast. That triggered furious winds that poured over the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges, acting as a giant bellows over the entire Pacific Coast, where fires were already burning in crackling-dry brush and timber. The result: an epic firestorm hopscotching from the Mexican to Canadian borders that has killed dozens of people, wiped out entire towns and caused some of the worst air pollution ever seen in the...
    Rich Wallace September 13, 2020 10:00AM (UTC) Jacob Blake was doing what any responsive dad and neighbor does: stepping in to break up a fight before leaving with his children. But police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, shot Blake in the back seven times, with his three young sons watching from the car. Yet again, instead of meeting this moment with any empathy or understanding, Donald Trump sent federal law enforcement into Wisconsin in an effort to silence a community in mourning. Throughout this summer, our communities have risen up in defense of Black lives, only to be met with state violence from a militarized police force that has no interest in helping us. The patterns are there if we look for them. : It goes like this: People around the country rise up to protest police brutality and injustice. Instead of listening and focusing on solutions aimed at the root causes of violence,...
    Under bright blue skies, nearly 2,000 students gathered this month for the start of school at Hanyang No. 1 High School in Wuhan, the Chinese city where the coronavirus first emerged. Medical staff stood guard at school entrances, taking temperatures. Administrative officials reviewed the students’ travel histories and coronavirus test results. Local Communist Party cadres kept watch, making sure teachers followed detailed instructions on hygiene and showed an “anti-epidemic spirit.” “I’m not worried,” a music teacher at the school, Yang Meng, said in an interview. “Wuhan is now the safest place.” As countries around the world struggle to safely reopen schools this fall, China is harnessing the power of its authoritarian system to offer in-person learning for about 195 million students in kindergarten through 12th grade at public schools. While the Communist Party has adopted many of the same sanitation and distancing procedures used elsewhere, it has rolled them out...
    SEAL BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- All 57 Catholic churches in Orange County returned to indoor Masses this week after the state gave places of worship the go-ahead. It's a moment that brought Father John Shimotsu to tears."It's very important because our Lord is in there. The tabernacle and it's where people pray and have baptisms and weddings, funerals. It's very important to the people," Shimotsu said.He's one of the priests at St. Anne's Church in Seal Beach, where they quickly brought back protocols that were in place earlier this summer when churches were allowed to reopen for a short time. Although Monsignor Mike Heher knows some of his parishioners were anxious to get inside, he wants to make sure everyone is safe."This is the time especially to reinforce the fact that nobody gets to make up their own rules. We have to follow the rules set by the government," said...
    The Daily Beast ‘Miracle With a Sad Ending’: Couple Survive But Lose Baby in Wildfire Chaos When he couldn’t reach his cousin Jake Hyland on Monday, Jim Mabry drove to his family’s remote property in rural Washington state, where wildfires turned pastures of 4-foot-high sage into dust.Jake and his wife, Jamie, along with their 1-year-old son, Uriel, were visiting their land in Okanogan County when flames from the Cold Springs Fire ripped through the area. Relatives couldn’t reach the couple, or emergency services, because power lines were down.On Tuesday, Mabry discovered Jake’s truck stuck in a ravine, about a quarter of a mile from the land. The vehicle had blown through a barbed wire fence. Its windshield had melted, and the steering wheel and dashboard were obliterated, he recalled.“When I first saw the truck, I didn’t want to search,” Mabry told The Daily Beast. “I was so convinced I was...
    Protesters march with the family of Jacob Blake during a rally against racism and police brutality in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 29, 2020. STEPHEN MATUREN/AFP via Getty Images Gaige Grosskreutz, the sole survivor among three men who were shot during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, says he survived because he had carried a medical kit with him.  Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, has been charged in the shootings of Grosskreutz and the two other men. Rittenhouse's lawyer says he plans to argue self-defense.  Grosskreutz told CNN that like Rittenhouse, he also brought a gun to the protest, a decision he made after reading about a call to arms on Facebook.  He said he never shot his gun during the protest.

    Jalin Turner brought an actual tarantula to the scale for his UFC Vegas 10 weigh-in. There’s a reason Jalin Turner is called the tarantula and it’s not just his long arms and legs. It’s because he’s absolutely obsessed with the hairy spiders and showed his devotion on Friday morning. When Turner stepped on the scales for his UFC Vegas 10 weigh-in he held one of his prized pets and showed it off for the cameras. Turner is filling in last-minute to face Brok Weaver in a 165 pound catchweight bout. Turner was scheduled to fight last weekend but his opponent was pulled from the card due to COVID.

    He falsely told Michigan voters he'd brought their state 'so many damn car plants.' Donald Trump told Michigan voters on Thursday that they'd "better vote for him" because of all the new automobile manufacturing facilities he has brought the state. In reality, that number is quite small. "I got you so many damn car plants," Trump told a rally in Freeland. "I got you a lot of plants! Is that right? Have you seen what we're doing here? All the plants that have been built, are being built, and what about the plants that are being expanded? They don't want to give you credit for that. They're just expanding." Loading...
    It seems like Donald Trump’s Thursday night rally in Michigan could have gone better. For instance, take this local headline in the Detroit Free Press: "Trump makes wild claims about revitalizing auto industry at Michigan rally." (An alternative headline: “Donald Trump makes false claims about autos at Michigan rally.”)  Trump being Trump, he insisted he had done great things for auto jobs in Michigan, saying “We brought you a lot of car plants, we brought you a lot ... and we’re going to bring you a lot more.” This is false. During Trump’s time in office, there has been one major new assembly facility added in Michigan, while two others have been idled. One of those idled plants is being redone to build electric cars and one is currently making face masks, but pretty clearly “We brought you a lot of car plants” is false. As another measure, in February, before the coronavirus...

Diane Mullin and her family are rebuilding their burned down Paradise home. They decided to evacuate after seeing the flames getting closer and closer. “It was very unnerving,” Mullin said. “You don’t want to get caught in that same situation twice.” Several of her family members have been diagnosed with PTSD after surviving the 2018 Camp Fire. This week’s fires had them all hyper-alert. “It brought more focus, is what it did,” Mullin said. “It brought a ton more focus.” READ: Death Toll Rises In North Complex West Zone Fire, 16-Year-Old Among Victims Kevin Phillips is the Paradise town manager.

    A Virginia assemblywoman who told police they weren't allowed to arrest rioters tearing down parts of a Confederate monument in Portsmouth, Virginia, earlier this summer wants two felony charges brought for her actions on the night to be thrown out. In court filings released this week, attorneys for Virginia state Sen. Louise Lucas argued that a criminal investigation into the Democrat can only be brought by the governor, the attorney general, or a grand jury. “Permitting any rogue local law enforcement agency to investigate an elected official without oversight would create a system whereby localities could attempt to intimidate and influence state officials at will,” wrote Lucas's attorneys Don Scott and Verbena Askew. Lucas was allegedly part of a crowd on June 10 that witnessed protesters beheading four statues of soldiers that were attached to the monument during which one man was seriously injured. In a video obtained by...
    Attorney General Bill Barr is dismissing concerns over his decision to have the Dept. of Justice defend President Donald Trump in a defamation case brought by journalist E. Jean Carroll, who is accusing Trump of rape. The DOJ has effectively asked a federal court to have the federal government become the defendant. Barr claims that this action is perfectly “routine,” and done frequently.” “It is done frequently,” Barr said. “And the little tempest that’s going on is largely because of the bizarre political environment in which we live,” he added, dismissively. In a Wednesday press conference he defended the move, telling reporters Trump was acting in his capacity as an employee of the federal government when he allegedly defamed Carroll. Trump was talking to reporters at the time, Barr says. Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday responded to the news, calling Barr’s decision “absurd,” and saying it “reflects the absolute...
    DENVER (CBS4) – It seems like the norm in 2020 for something to be ruined, canceled, or drastically changed. Not to sound like a negative Nancy, but it’s been a really tough year for so many reasons as we adjust to a new way of life while dealing with COVID-19. Summer wildfire smoke in downtown Glenwood Springs (credit: CBS) As thousands around the state suffered from poor air quality due to wildfires, the unusual late summer ‘winter storm’ brought an answer to many prayers with a widespread dose of water to help firefighting efforts. But the storm also brought record cold air to many areas — with a hard freeze that will likely take a major toll on the fall color. Leaves on many Colorado trees were already showing signs of stress due to widespread drought. The sudden freeze may cause many of those leaves to simply turn brown and...
    MILL VALLEY, Calif. (CBS Chicago/CBS SF Bay Area/CBS News) — A historic outbreak of wildfires across Northern California left a massive layer of smoke draped over the San Francisco Bay Area, turning skies early Wednesday into an eerie dark orange haze and covering cars, yards and homes with layers of ash. Nearly 100 major fires continued raging Wednesday night in almost a dozen Western states. The fires claimed lives and wiped out towns in Oregon and Washington, and turned skies eerily orange and brown in California as firefighters worked to snuff out the flames.

    During an interview with Fox 2 Detroit on Wednesday, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden responded to criticisms of NAFTA and his support for the agreement by stating that “the Bush administration did not keep its commitment on NAFTA,” and that this was a mistake. Biden also stated that Trump has lost jobs for the auto industry in Michigan, while the Obama administration brought back jobs. Host Roop Raj asked, “The rallying cry from the Trump campaign has been that NAFTA was a failure, and they point squarely at you for having been supportive of NAFTA. What do you say to them and what do you say to the people who believe that?” Biden responded, “What I say to that is, number one, the Bush administration did not keep its commitment on NAFTA, number one, and it was a mistake, number one. Number two, I would also...
    (CNN)Just when it seemed that Attorney General William Barr couldn't degrade the Justice Department any further with efforts to protect President Donald Trump's political fortunes, Barr has found a new low. Elie Honig Somehow he has determined that it is within the official duties of the President of the United States, when accused of rape, to call the accuser a liar -- thereby making defending Trump in this case an official matter for the DOJ, the entity whose mission statement begins with the words: "To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law." George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt -- presidents who fought to establish and preserve the ideals the United States should stand for -- must be turning in their graves.Trump's accuser, E. Jean Carroll, alleged publicly that Trump sexually assaulted her in a New York City department store...
    Alex Thomas September 9, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump’s campaign lost a crucial fundraising battle in August to Democratic nominee Joe Biden, this time by a whopping $154 million. The campaign announced their figures on Wednesday saying that the campaign and the RNC brought in $210 million during August. But that figure is dwarfed by Biden and the DNC, who collected $364.5 million in the same period. In a statement, the Trump campaign said that they received a massive cash influx during the Republican convention and that they brought in $76 million over a four-day period. They also said that August was their largest fundraising month on record. Trump Campaign manager Bill Stepien said, “Both campaigns are raising massive amounts of money, but have very different priorities about how to spend it. In addition to advertising, President Trump’s campaign has invested heavily in a muscular field operation...

    Tennis star Naomi Osaka said she cried after receiving video messages from the parents of Trayvon Martin and Ahmaud Arbery following a U.S. Open quarterfinals win on Tuesday. Throughout the tournament, Osaka has been wearing face coverings with the names of Martin, Arbery and other Black people whose deaths have inspired calls for racial justice.

    The Justice Department is seeking to take over President Donald Trump's defense in a defamation that rape accuser E. Jean Carroll filed against him after he called her a liar. Trump was acting 'within the scope' of his job as president, DOJ wrote in a new memo filed with the court as the suit moves to a new evidentiary phase – in a bid that would have a stable of taxpayer-paid government lawyers take up the defense.  Trump accused Carroll of 'totally lying' and said she was 'not my type' when she came out with an essay accusing him of raping her in the Bergdorf Goodman store in  Manhattan in 1995 or 1996.  E. Jean Carroll claims Donald Trump raped her in the 1990s and has sued Donald Trump for defamation after he said she was lying. The U.S. Justice Department filed a memo seeking to take over the...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday that President Trump caused the pandemic destruction in New York by failing to block travel from Europe earlier. “Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York. That is a fact,” Cuomo said. Cuomo added that the viral strain that hit New York, the first epicenter of the virus in the United States, came from Europe with millions of travelers to New York long before Trump’s March travel ban. “It was not the ‘China virus.’ It was the European virus that came to New York,” Cuomo said. “And then 3 million Europeans got on the plane and came to New York, and they brought the virus. January, they brought the virus. February, they brought the virus. March, they brought the virus.” Trump has touted the benefits of his ban on travel from Europe that was first announced on March...
    During his Tuesday coronavirus briefing, Gov. Andrew Cuomo accused Donald Trump of being responsible for the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City and suggested it wasn’t an accident, Raw Story reported. “Not only did he tell New York City to drop dead, Trump is actively trying to kill New York City,” he said. “It is personal, I think it is psychological. He is trying to kill New York City.” Cuomo claimed that Trump is responsible for the coronavirus outbreak in New York and said that the president ignored the fact that many cases of the virus in the state came from Europe — not China. “The China virus went to Europe… They never even thought of the possibility. And then 3 million Europeans got on a plane and came to New York. And they brought the virus. January, they brought the virus. February, they brought the virus. March, they brought...

    UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) — Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Robertson, who called Washington State football for more than 50 years, has died at the age of 91. Washington State said Robertson died Sunday at his home. Robertson was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2004 when he received the Chris Schenkel Award. “Today is a sad day for Cougs all over the world,” Washington State athletic director Pat Chun said in a statement. “Bob Robertson is an iconic figure in the history of Cougar athletics and sports radio broadcasting.

    Serena Williams came through a bruising battle with Maria Sakkari to reach the quarterfinals of the US Open. Williams looked set to endure more frustration in her quest to level Margaret Court’s record for career grand slam singles titles when she trailed Sakkari by a break in the third set. Sakkari came from a set down to defeat Williams in the Western & Southern Open prior to this tournament in the Flushing Meadows bubble.

    A member of the Kenosha County Board of Supervisors told The Kyle Olson Show that President Trump brought help with him to the community this week, while Joe Biden just talked. Supervisor Amy Maurer, and several other supervisors, wrote Trump a letter asking him not to cancel his visit to the area, despite demands by Gov. Tony Evers (D) and the NAACP. “I don’t care who comes as long as they bring help,” she said. The Trump administration is providing $41 million “in emergency funding to hire more police officers and provide support to victims affected by recent violence,” NBC 15 reported. Maurer said $1 million would go to the downtown Kenosha association to help the 30+ businesses hit by rioting, looting, and arson “get back on their feet.” “I don’t think Joe Biden brought any help. This was a campaign stop for him,” she told The Kyle Olson Show....
    VA Secretary Robert Wilkie defended President Donald Trump following last week’s stunning Atlantic report during a CNN interview Sunday. Dana Bash asked Wilkie about Trump allegedly disparaging fallen soldiers and said CNN has confirmed a detail of the report. “Have you ever heard the president disparage U.S. service members or veterans?” “Absolutely not,” Wilkie said. “And I would be offended too if I thought it was true. Again, I think anonymous are the same people that brought you fake heart attacks, fake strokes, Russian collusion. So, I am very proud that this president has led to a renaissance at Veterans Affairs.” He mentioned CNN’s own reporting on the VA under the Obama administration and touted Trump administration successes. Bash went back to the Atlantic report and told Wilkie that CNN has not reported anything about strokes. She continued on to note how multiple news outlets have corroborated parts of...

If you’ve listened, you’ve heard the word empathy and compassion over the last four months.” “How do you listen to these stories and not feel pain and not want to help?” Herbstreit continued with his voice beginning to crack. “You know what I mean? It’s like wearing a hoodie, putting your hands at 10-2. ‘Oh God, I better look out, because I’m wearing Nike gear,’ like what? What...

    Nebraska football got the “saucy nugs” guy to advocate for the return of the Huskers and an end to boneless wings at tailgates. Nebraska isn’t winning on the football field right now, but they’re winning on the internet. Nebraska may not get their wish. Not, at least, until the Big Ten presidents come to a decision on a new start date. Even then, tailgates won’t be welcome at college football for the foreseeable future. With any luck, when tailgates do return, they’ll be full of true wings, not “saucy nugs.” Next: Preseason Top 25 rankings: Clemson tops Alabama For more NCAA football news, analysis, opinion and unique coverage by FanSided, including Heisman Trophy and College Football Playoff rankings, be sure to bookmark these pages.

    One of the most esteemed works of sports literature was written 55 years ago by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author John McPhee. It was a profile of a Princeton student and basketball player named Bill Bradley. The piece that first appeared in the New Yorker magazine that later became a book was titled, “A Sense of Where You Are.” Tom Seaver had A Sense of Who He Was. Always. The tributes for the legend who wore The Franchise tag as if it were a custom-tailored ensemble generally tend to the personal. That’s because, if you were a sports fan growing up in New York in the ‘60s, if you were a Mets fan (and maybe even if you were not), you knew Tom Seaver. You knew he was not Everyman, but rather a shining example of how all things could be possible. We all knew No. 41. We knew him as...
    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he wants to allow indoor dining at New York City restaurants but first they might need to get the NYPD on board to help enforce COVID-19 related rules.

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff HARRISBURG (KDKA) – More than 1,300 long-term care facilities have finished universal baseline coronavirus testing by the state’s Aug. 31 deadline. Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said Tuesday that this testing has revealed asymptomatic workers who are bringing the virus into these facilities. Back in June, Dr. Levine ordered personal care homes, assisted living residences and private intermediate care facilities to test all residents and staff by the end of August.

They have no symptoms, but through the universal screening testing we have detected staff that are positive.”...
