    BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — The future of former President Donald Turmp, and whether it includes politics, is unclear. CBS3’s Matt Petrillo went to Bucks County to talk to Trump supporters and ask what’s next. Take a look inside the Trump Store in Bensalem. People can buy everything from Trump shirts to masks and more. And it saw a wave of customers Wednesday. “My son and daughter-in-law want a flag or something,” said Genie Mariano of Cheltenham. Mariano had to get some Trump merchandise for her family even though Trump is no longer in office. The Trump Store opened just 11 months ago. The owner says business has been steady, even after the election. “People are begging me to stay open. They say, ‘Please don’t close, this is our favorite store,’ and we have customers that come in every week,” owner Michael Domanico said. Trump suggested Wednesday, while he is...

    The year 2020 will be remembered as, if nothing else, a hellscape. A raging pandemic causing large-scale suffering and death can do that. So too can a scorched-earth presidential campaign that results in the losing candidate latching on to a number of wild conspiracy theories to undermine the tenets of democratic governance. Most people have no desire to relive terrible moments, let alone hellscapes. So, it’s quite possible that you, dear reader, will have exited out of this web page upon glancing through the introductory paragraph. But on the off chance that you’re a masochist who enjoys stories of pain, sorrow, drama, and political intrigue, well… You’re in luck. Here are 16, “Wow, this was really a LOOONG year?!?” moments from a hellscape year.1. Impeachment!Yes. Impeachment happened in 2020. In fact, it kicked off the year. I know, it seems so long ago. The process went fairly predictably after passing...
    The mood outside the Philadelphia counting centre was ebullient, with balloons, banners and music blasting out and scores of young people dancing in the street.  Joe Biden had just taken the lead in their state of Pennsylvania's vote. Beside me, two men were laughing at a small crowd of Trump supporters penned in behind a line of police.  'I'm enjoying seeing them upset and sad,' admitted Dontaa McGlone, a 32-year-old banker and Biden voter.  'It's been a rough four years, especially with all the racist stuff. Now they've been beaten in a fair fight.' The mood outside the Philadelphia counting centre was ebullient, with balloons, banners and music blasting out and scores of young people dancing in the street (people celebrate once the election is called, pictured)  'We can pull together again,' added McGlone, before saying with a smile: 'Tomorrow, we can start the healing – but today I'm...
    #11 Miami vs. NC State: NCAA college football live stream, TV channel, start time, odds, predictions This Famous Late Night Host Was Rejected From SNL Opinion: This presidential election shows why markets — in stocks and politics — are tough to beat FA CENTER © Getty Images Betting booths for horse raging at Belmont Park in New York City. Getty Images The 2020 presidential election shows us yet again why most of us should be buying and holding a stock index fund. Load Error The reason the two are related is that the markets on the whole did a better job than opinion polls in digesting the news prior to the Nov. 3 election and coming up with a realistic forecast. By “markets” I am referring to the markets in general, not just the stock market — including the various predictions and betting markets. What’s true for the...
    In a year dominated by massive street protests over racial injustice and wrenching losses from the pandemic, Los Angeles voters upended the political status quo on Tuesday by backing a slate of progressive candidates and measures. The question now is whether the leftward push is the beginning of a larger realignment of local politics or a unique moment brought about by extraordinary times. Voters have the chance to dramatically reshape L.A. City Hall in 2022 when they cast ballots for mayor, eight City Council candidates, city attorney and city controller. While L.A. has long been dominated by Democrats, the more establishment players are now being challenged from the left in a battle also playing out among Democrats at the national level. Locally, voters on election day appeared to favor more progressive candidates on election day and back stronger action on racial justice and a more humane approach to...
    Four years ago, the morning after election day, I climbed into an elevator in Sacramento a little hungover from alcohol and from absorbing the news that Donald Trump — as I had suspected — would be our next president. A woman I had never met dashed in just as the doors were closing and suddenly burst into tears. “I can’t believe he won!” she wailed, awkwardly reaching out for a hug. “How is this even possible?” All I could do was pat her back and mumble, “It’s OK,” even though I knew that it wouldn’t be. A majority of Californians believed then, as they did right up until election day this year, that Americans wouldn’t vote for a man who began his campaign by calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. As it turns out, more than 4 million people voted for him in California alone in 2016. And while...
    Today is Columbus Day in those states that still celebrate the federal holiday on the second Monday of October. Colorado is no longer one of them, even though this was the first state to officially observe Columbus Day, making it a holiday in 1907. After several earlier attempts, Colorado lawmakers finally voted to abolish Columbus Day early in the 2020 session, and on March 20, Governor Jared Polis signed a law officially abolishing the holiday in this state. Instead, on October 5, the first Monday of the month, Colorado observed the first Frances Xavier Cabrini Day, honoring Mother Cabrini, the Italian immigrant whose good deeds cannot be disputed. For years, Denver was the site of protests over Columbus Day, with organizers arguing that the explorer was no one to honor. Glenn Morris, currently director of the University of Colorado Denver's 4th World Center for the Study of Indigenous Law and...
    Greta Thunberg, the 17-year-old Swedish climate change activist, has endorsed Joe Biden’s bid for the White House, breaking with her long-standing rule of avoiding party politics. In a tweet Saturday, Thunberg said that the November 3 election is “above and beyond all that,” and is urging people to “get organized” and vote for Biden, even though she acknowledged that many of her followers backed other candidates. “I never engage in party politics,” she wrote. “But the upcoming US elections is above and beyond all that. From a climate perspective it’s very far from enough and many of you of course supported other candidates. But, I mean…you know…damn! Just get organized and get everyone to vote #Biden.” I never engage in party politics.

    The Fulton County, Ga. district attorney who charged former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe with murder -seems to be more concerned about politics and "the emotion of the moment" than he is about justice, former federal prosecutor Brett Tolman said Saturday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends Weekend" with host Pete Hegseth, Tolman, also the former U.S. Attorney for the state of Utah, said that he believes D.A. Paul L. Howard Jr. has pressing personal issues that he is more concerned about than the case against the fired officers involved in the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks. DA WHO CHARGED OFFICER WITH FELONY MURDER IN BROOKS SHOOTING IS IN TIGHT RUNOFF ELECTION "There are allegations about this district attorney that are alarming," Tolman remarked. "Then you have this incident occur. And, you have him take the microphone and stand in front of the public before they’ve finished their investigation, before [they have] finalized what occurred, where the people were at, what the video [showed], what the audio tells us as we review it."...
    As San Antonio enters its second wave of the coronavirus, Mayor Ron Nirenberg and other Texas mayors have teamed up to craft another letter about staying vigilant in the fight against the virus.

    (CNN)Ten South Florida police officers have resigned from their city's SWAT unit amid concerns about safety, including their feeling that they're "restrained by the politicalization of our tactics," according to CNN affiliate WSVN.The officers sent a letter, dated Tuesday, to Hallandale Beach Police Chief Sonia Quinones, saying they were "minimally equipped, under trained and often times restrained by the politicization of our tactics to the extent of placing the safety of dogs over the safety of the team members," WSVN reported.The officers also said they were displeased after the command staff took a knee with activists and others during a demonstration on Monday, according to WSVN."Until these conditions and sentiments are rectified and addressed, we cannot safely, effectively and in good faith carry out duties in this capacity without putting ourselves and our families at this needless increased level of risk," the officers added.The cities, states and countries finally putting...
