So this weekend she’s doing it again and she could use more volunteers and equipment. #TheHoodTakeover, part two will...

    Democrats are threatening to pack the Supreme Court if Republicans fill the vacancy left by liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death on Friday.  “Congress would have to act and expanding the court would be the right place to start,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler wrote on Twitter.  Ginsburg herself pushed back against the idea of packing the court when asked about it last year.  Prominent Democrats are threatening to expand the size of the Supreme Court to cancel out President Donald Trump’s court picks if Republicans vote on late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s replacement this year. Left-wing activists have been pushing Democratic politicians to endorse court-packing since Justice Anthony Kennedy’s 2018 retirement cleared the way for...

    The TV channel for a NASCAR race is elusive enough in a normal season when Fox and FS1 trade broadcasts of Cup Series events through the first half of the schedule before NBC and NBCSN take over for the second half. The schedule shake-up associated with the coronavirus pandemic make the “what channel is today’s NASCAR race on” question even more understandable. The NASCAR playoff schedule, though, remains unchanged. So the TV channel for Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway is still NBCSN. This is the third of NASCAR’s 10-race playoffs in the Cup Series and the first cut-off race.

But 13 of the 15 U.N.

He also said anyone who commits an act of violence “should be caught and punished.” Biden’s comments on the ambush and gun control stand in stark contrast to President Donald Trump who called for a “fast trial” with...

    Compton, California — The shooting of two Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies in an apparent ambush prompted a manhunt for the shooter, reaction from the president and protests outside the hospital where the wounded deputies were being treated Saturday night in California. The 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy both underwent surgery Saturday evening, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in a late-night news conference. Both graduated from the academy 14 months ago, he said. The deputies were shot while sitting in their patrol car at a Metro rail station and were able to radio for help, the sheriff said.
