    Getty Former national security adviser H.R. McMaster on Wednesday told CNN that he wishes President Donald Trump would recognize that Russian President Vladimir Putin is not his friend.  “I wish President Trump would just realize…Vladimir Putin is not his friend,” McMaster said to CNN’s Jim Sciutto. “It’s self-delusion…Putin is the best liar in the world.” Trump at a rally on Monday told supporters: “I like Putin. He likes me.” The intelligence community has repeatedly warned that Russia is engaged in ongoing efforts to interfere in the US electoral process.  Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

    Democratic West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin appeared on Fox & Friends on Wednesday to talk about the Supreme Court fight in Congress and said that he opposes both nuking the filibuster and plans to “pack the court.” Those plans have been floated by Democrats and in the media in the wake of President Donald Trump and the GOP made clear their intention to nominate and hold confirmation hearings on Trump’s choice to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Manchin his take on that. “I was going to ask you to speak for Joe Manchin for a second,” said Kilmeade, to narrow down the response. “If [Democrats] win...
    The Protecting Our Democracy Act seeks to reassert congressional oversight over the Executive branch. House Democrats called out Donald Trump directly this week while introducing a number of broad, sweeping reforms aimed at presidential corruption and abuse of power. The 158-page bill called Protecting Our Democracy Act aims "to restore our system of checks and balances," according to a press release from the House oversight committee. “Since taking office, President Trump has placed his own personal and political interests above the national interest by protecting and enriching himself, targeting his political opponents, seeking foreign interference in our elections, eroding transparency, seeking to end accountability, and otherwise abusing the power of his office,”...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Curbside dining could soon become a permanent fixture on New York City streets. The City Council is hearing several bills Wednesday that would help struggling restaurants survive through the fall. As CBS2’s Christina Fan reports, two of the major proposals would allow for outdoor dining to continue indefinitely. The other would allow restaurants to put in street heaters. At Kobrick Coffee Company in the Meatpacking District, general manager Mary Colgan isn’t looking forward to the changing of the season. The outdoor dining program she’s relied so heavily on is set to end October 31st. “It’s boggling everybody. You’re trying to find other options, but when you look there are no other options. If they close this,” Colgan said....

    Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said Wednesday that he opposes packing the Supreme Court or ending the Senate filibuster and urged his Democratic colleagues to be “bipartisan.” “I do not believe that would help anybody,” Manchin told “Fox & Friends” when asked if he would favor adding more seats to the Supreme Court or ending filibusters in the Senate. “Basically, no one is working together,” the senator said, noting that packing the Supreme Court could be a chronic game of tit for tat: “you have 11 or 13 [seats] it’s going to flip the other way no matter who comes in power. So why would you go down that path?” Manchin asked.(RELATED: Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono Says Adding...
    Earlier this year, social distancing and the cataclysmic drop in demand for air travel was expected to bring a sharp rise in airfare prices. Flying was going to get expensive — a lot more expensive, according to some. Commercial aviation, the conventional wisdom said, would return to its 1950s roots as a luxury available only to the rich. All that may happen — but not anytime soon, experts say.Will commercial airfares rise this year?"I don't think so," said Kent Gourdin, professor and director of the Global Logistics and Transportation Program at the College of Charleston. "Airlines are simply trying to put people into seats." Gourdin said that until the public can travel — not just fly — with confidence again,...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff HARRISBURG (KDKA) – The state Senate has passed a bill that would change some of Pennsylvania’s restaurant restrictions. House Bill 2513 would allow restaurants and bars to operate at a 50 percent capacity — which the order in effect right now already allows if businesses self-certify — but some restaurants could increase capacity even more if their premises allow. Customers would also be allowed to sit at the bar, and people could buy a drink without having to buy a meal with it. The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association released a statement applauding the bill, saying it takes into account “a balance of COVID safety measures and business survival needs.” “Industry casualties...
    Olivia Troye, formerly a top Homeland Security adviser to Vice President Mike Pence, went into detail on Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and why she turned against the president. On Tuesday, Troye gave an interview to NBC’s Andrea Mitchell and she recalled her time on the White House coronavirus task force by saying they knew early in the year that the pandemic was a serious concern. She reflected how “frightening” it was as she saw Trump downplay the virus and claim one day it will just “disappear.” “I felt that in my heart, and in my entire being, I think American lives were continuing to be on the line,” Troye said. “[The task force] was really focused on...
    Flordia Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced on Monday a proposed new law that would protect drivers who kill or injure demonstrators if the drivers are fleeing a "mob." The move comes following the death while under police restraint of George Floyd and amid heightened tensions across the U.S. between law enforcement and protesters. The proposed legislation will be filed for the March 2021 session. What are the details? On Twitter, DeSantis wrote, "Today I announced bold legislation that creates new criminal offenses and increases penalties for those who target law enforcement and participate in violent or disorderly assemblies. We will always stand with our men and women in uniform who keep our communities safe."...
    As President Donald Trump quickly moves ahead to nominate a replacement for the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Democrats had hoped to halt that process in its tracks by convincing at least four Republicans that Trump's nominee should not even receive a vote before the election. Those hopes likely took a mortal blow on Tuesday when Utah Sen. Mitt Romney (R) announced that he is not opposed to confirming a nominee in an election year and that he would vote on Trump's replacement "based upon their qualifications." Thus far, Democrats have only been able to secure "no vote" commitments from Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski and Maine Senator Susan Collins among all the Republicans in the Senate. Democrats had hoped...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday put forth new legislation aimed at protesters. oe Burbank/Orlando Sentinel/Tribune News Service via Getty Images Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday released a list of proposed reforms that target protesters and increase penalties for actions like toppling monuments or blocking roadways.  Among the proposals is protection for drivers who kill or injure protesters if they're "fleeing for safety from a mob."  Among other changes, the bill would also deny bail to anyone arrested for a crime "during a violent or disorderly assembly" until their first appearance in court. Micah Kubic, executive director of the ACLU of Florida, described DeSantis as cracking down on "his disdain for dissent" instead of "addressing the violence protesters...
    Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis pushed legislation that he described as “bold” on Monday. Judging by the plain text of the proposal and the responses to it, bold is an understatement. Under the “new criminal offenses” section established by the would-be Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act, DeSantis declared it a third-degree felony to obstruct traffic during an “unpermitted protest, demonstration or violent or disorderly assembly.” Notably, the next clause purports to remove liability for injury or death a driver causes if that driver is “fleeing for safety from a mob. Today I announced bold legislation that creates new criminal offenses and increases penalties for those who target law enforcement and participate in violent or...

    Three-time NBA champion Klay Thompson is one of the best shooters in NBA history. He stunned everyone in 2014 when he chose the Chinese brand ‘Anta’ over Nike and Adidas as his official sneaker endorser. And thus, ‘China Klay’ was born!  Klay’s contract with Anta is one of the most lucrative shoe deals in the league at the moment. However, Klay was a Nike guy when he initially started out in the league. But he decided to switch brands and found Anta to suit his liking. He recently put pen to paper to bolt a 10-year-long extension down, after signing with Anta six years ago. He is reported to earn $80 million from the contract.  Back in 2018, Klay...
    Loading the player... With the November election just weeks away, President Donald Trump is out on the campaign trail to condemn his Democratic opponent Joe Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris. At a campaign appearance in the battleground state of Wisconsin, where he won by a slim margin in 2016, Trump tried to cast an ominous message about Harris, saying “if a woman is going to become the first president of the United States, it can’t be her,” Business Insider reports. “That would rip our country apart,” Trump said in front of a crowd. “This is not what people want. And she comes in through the back door — this would not be what people want, especially...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci is arguing that closing bars and restaurants would help to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Appearing on MSNBC’s All In Thursday night, the infectious disease expert was asked by host Chris Hayes to weigh in on the status of bars and restaurants — particularly in high-risk areas. “It seems to me the evidence from Arizona, and from Texas, and New York City — and Dr. [Deborah] Birx has reportedly been telling governors this — is that would help us a lot if we kept [bars and restaurants] closed,” Hayes said. “Do you agree with that?” “I totally agree, Chris,” Fauci replied. “In fact, the CDC just came out — if you go on their website...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia City Council is slated to vote on a police reform bill on Thursday. The bill would require public input and a hearing before the City of Philadelphia approves a new police contract. Councilmember Katherine Gilmore Richardson introduced the bill and tells Eyewitness News she hopes it will create a more diverse and equitable police force.  “The bill that I introduced on June 11 will require for the first time ever, in the City of Philadelphia, public input as a part of the police contract negotiation process,” Gilmore Richardson said. This means that there would be a public hearing as part of the process so people would be able to give their input and the police union...
    Outrage erupted over a Facebook post by a Republican candidate for the Arkansas state House of Representatives that implied he was going to hunt down Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters.

I wonder what the bag limit is, and where I can purchase riot-idot [sic] hunting license," read the post.

    Attorney General Bill Barr accused Democrats of encouraging mob violence in US cities as he railed against mail-in voting and mocked the idea that Trump will 'seize power and all that s**t' if he loses in November.  In a wide-ranging interview with WGN radio aired Monday, Barr claimed that Chicago is 'out of control' following a recent spike in violent crime, alleging that the city 'provides multiple opportunities for corruption'.  Barrr's harshest criticism came for mail-in voting, however, which he claimed eradicates the idea of a secret ballot, leaves voters open to influence and presents the opportunity for ballots to be bought.  Attorney General Bill Barr accused Democrats of encouraging mob violence in US cities as he claimed Chicago is 'out...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore City Council is set to vote on two bills that, if passed, would help hospitality workers return to the jobs they had before COVID-19 led hotels and event centers to lay off staff.

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff HARRISBURG, Pa. (KDKA) — State lawmakers are considering a bill that would make it a misdemeanor not to wear a mask in public. Supporters are Senate Bill 1287 says Pennsylvanians who don’t wear masks are recklessly endangering other people and not following the rules set forth in the state’s emergency order. Those opposed to the bill say requiring masks infringes on a person’s rights and doesn’t account for people who cannot wear masks or face coverings for medical reasons.

    D’Andre Swift will never forget his NFL debut. He dropped an easy touchdown pass with six seconds remaining to doom the Lions to defeat.  The Lions had a golden opportunity to beat the Bears in Week 1. Unfortunately, D’Andre Swift couldn’t haul in Matthew Stafford’s terrific potential touchdown catch in the game’s closing moments. Swift may enjoy a long and distinguished NFL career, but he’s never going to forget his debut as a professional. Stafford gave him a chance to be an absolute hero with a smooth pass into the corner of the end zone. Inexplicably, Swift dropped the ball as he turned his body back towards the quarterback. The drop left the Lions with one last opportunity to win...
    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pressed Biden campaign senior policy advisor Jake Sullivan on whether President Donald Trump’s January travel ban to China “saved thousands of lives.” Wallace introduced the topic on Sunday morning’s “Fox News Sunday” by playing a clip of Biden seeming to criticized the travel ban as “xenophobia” the same day Trump introduced it. “Biden denies that he was talking that day about the travel restrictions that the president had just imposed,” Wallace said. “Are we to believe it was just a coincidence, that he was talking about xenophobia the day that the president announced travel restrictions on China?” WATCH: “Well, first of all, Chris, independent fact-checkers including Politifact have looked at the claim that Joe...

    As the threat of a ban from the United States looms over video-sharing app TikTok, reports indicate that China would rather see the company close its U.S. operations than sell them. Three sources with "direct knowledge of the matter" said that the Chinese government believes a sale under pressure from the U.S. would make it appear weak, Reuters reported Friday. China is willing to use its own means to delay a deal with the platform, two of the sources said. Reuters has previously reported that it would be possible for ByteDance, TikTok's parent company, to make the sale without China's approval by selling it without key algorithms. ByteDance said that the Chinese government has never suggested that it...
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump told one of the most absurd lies of his relentlessly dishonest reelection campaign on Thursday.At a campaign rally in Freeland, Michigan, Trump claimed his opponent, Joe Biden, "will destroy your protections for pre-existing conditions." Trump went on to say that he would himself preserve these protections.Facts First: This is not only false but a complete reversal of reality. The protections for people with pre-existing conditions were created by the very Obama administration in which Biden served as vice president -- as part of Obamacare, the 2010 law Biden has vowed to preserve and strengthen if elected President. Trump, conversely, has tried repeatedly to get bills passed that would have weakened these protections. He is now trying...
    A three-judge panel in Manhattan federal court voted to block President Trump’s memo that would bar undocumented immigrants from being counted in the nationwide census, according to court papers filed Thursday. The decision blocks implementation of the memo Trump signed in July titled, “Excluding Illegal Aliens From the Apportionment Base Following the 2020 Census,” which directed the Commerce Secretary to give Trump information about undocumented immigrants so they could be exempt from the count. In the ruling Thursday, the judges wrote the memo is a “violation of Congress’s delegation of its constitutional responsibility to count the whole number of persons in each State,” a tally that is then used to decide the number of House districts in each state....

    Donald Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows says he would not have advised the president to give interviews to Bob Woodward if he had been in post at the time.  Trump is under pressure after Woodward's interviews revealed how the president played down the threat of the coronavirus despite knowing in February that it was 'deadly stuff'.  The president gave 18 interviews to the Watergate journalist between December and July, while Meadows became his chief of staff in March - telling Fox News that Woodward's access 'is probably something that I would not have recommended had I been in the chief of staff role early on'.  However, Meadows insisted that 'this president was consistent in saying that we needed to do everything...
    Citigroup has become the first big Wall Street bank to appoint a female CEO as its retail banking chief Jane Fraser takes over from Michael Corbat, who said only last year that he would not be replaced by a woman.  Scottish-born Fraser, a 16-year Citigroup veteran, will take the reins in February, when Corbat retires after 37 years at the bank. The married mom-of-two, 53, will join the board of directors with immediate effect, the company announced Wednesday.

    If notorious killer Charles Manson can get a fair trial then so can Ghislaine Maxwell, lawyers for her accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre have said.  Giuffre's lawyers rejected Maxwell's claim that releasing a trove of documents from their 2016 lawsuit would lead to a storm of negative publicity and prejudice her trial.  Maxwell last month pleaded with judges not to 'let the cat out of the bag' by unsealing the documents, after she denied charges of helping Jeffrey Epstein to recruit and abuse young girls.  But Giuffre's lawyers wrote in a Wednesday court filing: 'Other high-profile cases where courts successfully managed extensive pretrial publicity - and rejected defendants' arguments that it compromised their right to a fair trial - include the...
    White House chief of staff Mark Meadows defended President Donald Trump’s comments to Bob Woodward admitting to downplaying the coronavirus, while offering a rather candid admission about the level of access Woodward got in the White House for a book.

He insisted “it was all hands on deck” in the White House early on when he came aboard, while adding that there’s a lot we know now about the virus that we didn’t know then. Meadows joined the administration in late March, after Woodward was already granted access...

    Skepticism about getting a coronavirus vaccine has grown since earlier this summer, and most voters say if a vaccine were made available this year, their first thought would be that it was rushed through without enough testing. Just 21% of voters nationwide now say they would get a vaccine as soon as possible if one became available at no cost, down from 32% in late July. Most would consider it but would wait to see what happens to others before getting one.  Two-thirds of voters think if a vaccine were announced as soon as this year, their initial thought would be that it was rushed through without enough testing, rather than a scientific achievement that happened quickly.

    Apple is delaying a controversial new privacy rule it’s implementing with iOS 14 that will require developers to ask users for permission to gather data and track them across mobile apps and websites on the iPhone and iPad, the company announced in a developer update posted Thursday. Apple originally intended for the rule to go live with iOS 14, slated for released sometime this fall, but it’s now giving developers more time to comply with the changes. Among the companies most concerned about the change is Facebook, which said it would stop using the unique identifiers Apple intends to warn users about but expressed concern for third-party advertisers on its network that cannot afford to do the same. ...

    If we have learned anything watching Lionel Messi exhibit his preternatural gifts for the game of soccer during the past 15 years, first with Argentina’s squad in the 2005 FIFA U20 World Cup and most recently with FC Barcelona in the 2020 Champion League quarterfinals, it is this: His first instinct is to score. He has accumulated 444 league goals and 70 senior international goals for Argentina. His second instinct is to pass. He has recorded 184 assists for Barca in La Liga and 35 more in Champions League. His third instinct is to run — and not with the ball at his toe, not to recover in defense, not into the open to field a ball launched by...
    Authorities are investigating a Long Island bar for a 'sickening' Instagram post that appeared to show it was taking bets on whether Chicago or New York City would see more shootings over Labor Day weekend. The Cliffton, a bar in Patchogue, New York, shared photos of a Super Bowl-style paper grid hung in the bar with patrons placing bets on the number of shootings in the two cities, Newsday reported Tuesday.  The winner would take home an unspecified cash prize. The pool has been condemned as 'repugnant' and the bar is now under investigation as it may also have broken state gambling laws.    The Cliffton in Patchogue, New York, was criticized for its 'repugnant' betting pool on Labor Day...
    Joe Scarborough said that if anyone else used President Donald Trump’s curious analogy about police officers who “choke,” they would almost certainly be fired from their job. Morning Joe discussed Trump’s interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, and they began by focusing on how Trump compared the police shooting and killing of African American suspects to people who miss a 3-foot putt in a golf game. Scarborough slammed Trump over the “racist tropes” of his interview, but he also joined the mockery for the president’s claim that Joe Biden is being controlled by a plane full of black-uniformed people “in the dark shadows.” “It sounds like bad guys from Avenger movies,” Scarborough exclaimed. “It is so unmoored....
    The Environmental Protection Agency is loosening requirements controlling how power plants treat and dispose of toxic waste, fulfilling a top request of coal producers. Power companies and coal producers had long complained about the Obama-era regulations, which they said were too costly and would force coal plants to shut down prematurely. The Trump EPA’s new rule relaxes those requirements by extending deadlines by which coal plants must install pollution controls, requiring less costly treatment technologies and allowing facilities to discharge more wastewater. It also exempts certain facilities altogether, including coal plants that are slated to shut down or switch to burning natural gas by 2028. The revised rules show “President Trump’s commitment to advancing American energy independence and protecting the...

    There never was — and still is not — an urgency for the Giants to do anything. They can be patient and let their pups on defense grow during a season when no one expects them to be in any kind of playoff chase. But should they decide to sign veteran Logan Ryan for their inexperienced, depleted secondary, it could tell us something about the organization’s mindset about this team and this pandemic season. Because it is the kind of move that would-be contenders, rather than rebuilding pretenders with a rookie head coach and second-year quarterback, normally make. The Vikings, for example, traded for pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue on Sunday because they see a clear path to the NFC North...
    By Kitty Hu To meet the national demand for protective gear, fashion and garment manufacturers quickly switched from producing clothes to producing masks and equipment for front-line workers. According to Garment Worker Center Outreach Coordinator Annie Shaw, this has led to Los Angeles garment workers being seen as essential for the first time. Still, workers are fighting for fair wages and workplace protections, which heightens the urgency for Senate Bill 1399, a piece of legislation currently pending California Assembly approval. “Even though there is more visibility, our workers’ health and safety, let alone incomes, remain highly precarious,” Shaw said. “On the one hand, garment workers are essential; on the other hand, they are treated as disposable, risking their lives to work...
    (Samuel Corum, Getty Images) Indian Republican Rep. Jim Banks has introduced a bill that would block individuals convicted of rioting and looting from receiving coronavirus unemployment benefits. Banks sponsored the “Support Peaceful Protest Act” earlier this month with the bill also calling to hold those looters “financially liable for the cost of federal policing.” According to Fox News, Banks told a local radio outlet, “If you’re convicted of a crime that caused more manpower and law enforcement officers to deal with it, then perhaps you should be on the hook to pay for that.” Banks added, “What we’re seeing happen in big cities and around the country are angry violent mobs showing up at federal properties, tearing down monuments on...
    At the time at which I’m writing these words, my son is slated to return to school full time in early September, coronavirus cases being at a low enough level for government and health officials here in the State of New York to deem it safe for schools to open. Granted, his school has plans in place to switch to remote learning in the space of a single day, but as of now, it’s back to school in 2020. That said, going back to school in the fall of 2020 is going to look quite a bit different than it did in 2019. Or 2018. Or any other year in recent memory. With COVID-19 still rampant across much of the...
    SACRAMENTO —  California tenants facing financial hardship because of the COVID-19 pandemic would be protected from eviction through January as long as they pay 25% of their rent during that period, under a proposal announced Friday by state officials. The plan, which faces the high hurdle of having to get a two-thirds vote in each house of the Legislature by Monday night, was seen as a compromise with landlord groups who oppose a pending bill that would have kept tenants from being evicted if they did not pay any rent as late as April. “This will not be the ultimate solution to addressing COVID-19 evictions, but will tide us over for the next five months,” said Assemblyman David Chiu...
    The Virginia Senate passed a bill this week that would downgrade assaulting a police officer in the commonwealth from a felony to a misdemeanor. Senate Bill 5032 would eliminate the mandatory minimum term of confinement for "an assault and battery committed against a judge; magistrate; law-enforcement officer; correctional officer; person directly involved in the care, treatment, or supervision of inmates; firefighter; or volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel and provides that such crime can no longer be committed as a simple assault and must result in a bodily injury." The measure to defelonize assaulting an officer was introduced by Virginia Democrats in July, following nationwide calls for police reform in the wake of George Floyd's...
    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson opened his show Wednesday night talking about the violence and killings in Kenosha in the wake of the shooting of Jacob Blake. He said the chaos “has reached its inevitable and bloody conclusion” as he talked about the three people who were shot — two of whom died — during riots. He showed footage from the riots and particularly the footage showing Daily Caller reporter Richie McGinniss running over to help someone who was shot. 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse has been arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide. Carlson briefly reviewed the scene of the shooting and said, “So what does that amount to? We’re unsure, a court will decide whether what you just saw qualifies as...
    A former U.S. Navy pilot and TOPGUN instructor told Business Insider this week that the combat simulation in which an artificial intelligence beat an experienced human pilot gave the computer an advantage. Guy “Bus” Snodgrass said that he “was not surprised by that outcome,” after the AI won. John “JV” Venable, a former Air Force pilot, added that he expected the same. "This was gamed to a point where you cant beat it," Venable said, noting that the AI algorithm seems to have been given information that it wouldn’t have had access to in the real world, and that the simulated environment was made for the program. "You have an artificial intelligence program that has been perfectly trained in that...
    On Tuesday, after the Republican National Convention aired Monday night, NBC’s “Today” show co-host Savannah Guthrie asked South Carolina GOP Senator Tim Scott, who had concluded the program at the RNC on Monday, if he wished “that rhetoric would be ratcheted down a little bit?” Scott responded calmly, “Well, this is a political process and drawing contrast is very important.”   Prior to her querying Scott, Guthrie played clips from the previous night, commenting, “The Republicans last week ripped the Democrats’ convention for being dark and promised that theirs would be more optimistic and hopeful. Let me play a sampling of some of the speeches we heard last night.” Turning to Scott, she continued, “Now, your speech was pretty upbeat, although...
    Getty: "Olga Puerta, originally from Colombia, holds an American flag as she joins with other people during a ceremony to become American citizens at a U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services naturalization ceremony in a Miami Field Office on August 16, 2019 in Miami, Florida." The last-minute miracle happened. BuzzFeed News reports U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has canceled plans to furlough nearly 70% of the immigration agency’s staff on Aug. 30, a last-minute decision that comes just days after the House of Representatives passed urgent legislation aiming to stop the impending furloughs. However, Hamed Aleaziz reports that acting (because of course he is) USCIS Director Joseph Edlow “said in his staff email that while the financial outlook for the agency had ‘temporarily improved’ due to an...
    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on Tuesday announced it would abandon plans to furlough more than 13,000 employees next week, temporarily averting a scenario that would have crippled the processing of applications for green cards, work permits, U.S. citizenship and other immigration benefits. In a message to employees obtained by CBS News, Deputy USCIS Director for Policy Joseph Edlow said the agency was able to avoid furloughing nearly 70% of its workforce because its financial situation has "improved somewhat" since the spring, when coronavirus pandemic fueled an unprecedented drop in applications. Unlike most other federal agencies, USCIS is largely funded through the fees it charges. Though applications have increased in recent weeks, Edlow said the agency is still projecting...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — As more people call for police reform across the country and here in Pittsburgh, facial recognition technology is under the microscope. Pittsburgh Councilman Corey O’Connor is introducing a bill that will ban the unrestricted use of facial recognition and predictive policing technology in the city. According to the Tribune-Review, O’Connor says this technology has harmed more people than it has helped. A spokesperson with Pittsburgh Public Safety said facial recognition is not regularly used by police in the city. Pittsburgh Police doesn’t own facial recognition computers but the technology can be used by departments as part of the Pennsylvania Justice Network, which is a statewide law enforcement network. Public Safety says city cameras aren’t equipped with or...
    A former business partner and "pool boy" for Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. claims that he engaged in regular sexual encounters with the university leader's wife, Becki Falwell, over the course of several years — and that Falwell would often watch the two have sex. What are the details?Speaking with Reuters, Giancarlo Grandam alleged that his relationship with the Falwells, which began when he was 20, spanned seven years before it eventually soured. Here's more from the report:Giancarlo Granda says he was 20 when he met Jerry and Becki Falwell while working as a pool attendant at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel in March 2012. Starting that month and continuing into 2018, Granda told Reuters that the relationship involved...
    After just two years in Colorado's dreaded Supermax Prison, hate preacher Abu Hamza was frantically pounding on his cell door to get out, his lawyers decrying its 'inhuman and degrading conditions' and insisting he'd return to a British jail 'in a second' if he could. Perhaps his successor in British Islamist extremism, Isis fanatic Alexanda Kotey, had Hamza's bleak fate in mind — even his famous hooks were removed from the stumps of his arms — when he recently said the 'worst thing that could happen' would be to be locked up in a U.S. jail. Kotey and fellow British jihadi El Shafee Elsheikh face extradition to America after officials there promised they would not be put to death if...
    MSNBC’s Chuck Todd roasted President Donald Trump on Monday’s Meet the Press — claiming that his RNC speech was “filled with so many made-up problems about mail-in voting” before he thoroughly and brutally fact-checking the president. Todd joked that if the network were to only air “the truthful parts” of his speech they would probably “only air maybe a sentence, if that much.” Todd noted that Trump is currently trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in most polls — guessing that the president’s comments on voting fraud are actually a way for him to disrupt the vote. The host also faulted the Republican National Committee for planning to ignore any legitimate policies or platforms during their convention, instead rallying around their mutual love for the president, before he...

    House Democrats were poised Saturday to pass a bill meant to handcuff Postmaster General Louis DeJoy ahead of November’s election — despite his Senate testimony that he has made no changes to its operations. Both parties railed at one another for two hours of acrimonious debate in a rare weekend session called by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — as President Trump weighed in via Twitter. “This is all another HOAX by the Democrats to give 25 Billion unneeded dollars for political purposes, without talking about the Universal Mail-In Ballot Scam,” he tweeted. The bill, which is unlikely to get a vote in the Senate, would order DeJoy not to close post offices, remove sorting machines or restrict overtime...
    The House passed a $25 billion bailout of the financially troubled United States Postal Service that would block reforms or changes to service. About two dozen Republicans voted in favor of the legislation, despite both the GOP leadership and President Trump urging party lawmakers to oppose it. Dozens voted by proxy rather than attending the unusual August Saturday session in person. Republicans called the measure “political theater,” and argued the USPS has suffered from chronic financial problems for many years and is in need of reform, not more money. White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was on Capitol Hill Saturday trying to convince Democrats to work on a compromise deal that would include not only some money...
    Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Friday vetoed a City Council budget plan to slash funding to the police department and eliminate the city's homeless outreach team, among other programs. The nine-member council approved the rebalanced budget that would have reduced police funding by 14% for the remainder of 2020. The move also would have resulted in the loss of 100 police officers through layoffs and attrition. The cuts would have totaled around $23 million of the remaining $127 million in the budget, KOMO News reported. “This veto was because the bills, as passed, did not have the type of collaboration that I think we will have going forward, and that I'm hopeful we will have going forward," Durkan said during a news conference. "There's some flaws in each...
    Would Michael Jordan have won the NBA titles in 1994 and 1995? After winning his third title in 1993, Jordan took a year and a half off from the game, before returning midway through the 1994-95 season. In those two seasons, the Houston Rockets won back to back titles. But have often been discredited by fans who believe they wouldn’t have won had it not been for Jordan’s absence. Robert Horry, who was part of that Rockets’ title-winning team, believes they would have won it irrespective of Jordan staying or not. While speaking to Quentin Richardson on the Knuckleheads podcast, Horry said, “We gonna win those two championships. Because the Bulls went out and revamped that team. They got Kukoc...

    During an interview on the Fox News Channel’s coverage of the 2020 Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy reacted to 2020 Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris’ vow to solve the coronavirus pandemic if elected by stating that if 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden was the president right now, “we’d still be debating whether the planes from China should come to America.” McCarthy said that this is because “we know” Biden’s son, Hunter, “would probably be getting quite a bit of money from that.” McCarthy said, [relevant remarks begin around 1:20] “You know, they have no message, so all they do is mislead. And when you watched tonight, they beg people...

Ige confirmed this week that the state’s pre-travel testing program will be delayed — yet again — until at least Oct. 1. The program, which would have allowed trans-Pacific visitors to bypass a mandatory 14-day quarantine by presenting the results of a negative COVID-19 screening, was originally slated to begin on Aug. 1, but was already delayed until at least Sept. 1, per a July press release from the Department of Transportation.

    INDIANA, Pa. (KDKA) — Local leaders could not come to a decision on a controversial ordinance that would have levied fines against those not wearing masks. Indiana Borough leaders met virtually Tuesday to decide whether people in Indiana should be fined up to $300 for not wearing masks. After three hours of debate and community input, leaders decided more discussion and feedback was needed. Before the meeting, a group against the fines rallied in town. They said the proposed fines are divisive and will drive people out of town. (Photo Credit: KDKA) “You know one, that is a violation of our constitutional rights. And two, it’s just not realistic.

    Some Fox Newsers Tuesday night had praise for the way the Democrats handled the roll call for officially nominating Joe Biden. Dana Perino commended how the night went overall before saying, “I don’t ever want to see another roll call taken in a convention hall. I think this has been awesome. I loved this trip around America.” Juan Williams agreed and said, “I enjoyed that trip across America so much… You could see so many parts of our spectacular country. I love it.” Karl Rove started by saying he “hated the video swing around the country” and favors “people in the goofy hats and nutty outfits” on the convention floor. But as he criticized another aspect of the night,...
