    With COVID-19 blazing through the nation and no federal response in sight, Donald Trump temporarily affixed Mike Pence’s name on a Coronavirus Task Force before deciding that group was more useful to leverage news coverage for his own benefit. Behind the scenes, both Pence and medical experts were sidelined. As Trump turned the task force into a daily mini-rally, it was actually Jared Kushner who was left to manage development of a national testing plan, a national case tracing plan, and the distribution of protective gear and medical supplies. And what happened then wasn’t simply that Kushner didn’t fail to plan. He actually planned to fail.  In July, Vanity Fair reporter Katherine Eban reported on how a national testing strategy had been ready to...

    TikTok : Possible consequences of a 1:13 TikTok ban (. Business) – The US Department of Commerce will ban downloads and access to TikTok and WeChat starting this Sunday.

    The gender pay gap within the White House is reportedly worse than the national average, according to an analysis by nonprofit news organization The 19th. Analysis by the website found salaries in President Trump's White House had a $33,300 difference between the median salary for male staffers and the median salary for female staffers. This year, male staffers earned a median salary of around $106,000, and female staffers' median was about $72,700. The statistics indicate women working for the administration make around 69 cents on the male dollar, which is less than the national gender pay gap of 82 cents on the dollar. Still, both the national numbers and the White House numbers reflect the "raw" gender pay gap, which does not...

    By spreading misinformation and attacking voting by mail, Trump and his campaign are waging war on the 2020 election. Down in the polls and facing the possibility of defeat, Donald Trump is using his platform to generate mass confusion ahead of the November general election, which could make it harder for Americans to vote in the middle of a deadly pandemic. Trump, along with the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee, have been taking numerous actions that would depress the vote for the upcoming election, which Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is currently favored to win. Here are some of the ways Trump and his GOP allies...

    Attorney General William Barr claimed that, “other than slavery,” calls for a national lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic were “the greatest intrusion on civil liberties.” Barr spoke Wednesday as part of a Hillsdale College event recognizing Constitution Day, making several comments about the constitutional implications of coronavirus-related lockdowns.

    Washington (CNN)House Majority Whip James Clyburn on Thursday slammed Attorney General William Barr for comparing coronavirus lockdowns in the US to slavery, saying the comments are "the most ridiculous, tone-deaf, God-awful thing I've ever heard." "You know, I think that that statement by Mr. Barr was the most ridiculous, tone-deaf, God-awful thing I've ever heard," Clyburn, the No. 3 Democrat in the House and its highest ranking Black member, told CNN's John Berman on "New Day." "It is incredible that (the) chief law enforcement officer in this country would equate human bondage to expert advice to save lives. Slavery was not about saving lives, it was about devaluing lives." Barr made the comparison during an event at Hillsdale College Wednesday...
    The president of the United States takes the following oath at his or her inauguration: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Donald Trump has repeatedly betrayed this promise, and should long since have been removed from office for doing so. The Constitution deems that the president is commander in chief of the military. As revealed by the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, Donald Trump believes that members of the U.S. military who have been wounded or killed in battle are “suckers” and “losers” for not being as selfish and cowardly as he is. Trump also...
    The clash between Donald Trump and Joe Biden over the roots of the West’s apocalyptic fire season has missed the crucial point – perhaps because neither candidate is targeting the solidly Democratic Pacific Coast. Biden justly called Trump a “climate arsonist,” after four years of desperate efforts to accelerate climate change and convince the American people to ignore its threats. Trump is wrong to blame state forest management policies for the fires. But a major source of the conflagration was a misguided national century of treating fire, not fuel, as the enemy in the arid West, so arguably the president is stumbling around an important reality. But while climate change is igniting the great burn, and fire suppression is fueling it, communities faced with flames need investments that protect...

    Oracle's bid to buy TikTok from Chinese parent ByteDance has reportedly fallen short of requirements from the Trump administration to resolve concerns that the video-sharing app represents a national security concern. The proposed deal has drawn continuing concerns from national security officials could sway President Donald Trump's decision, people familiar with the deal told Bloomberg News on Wednesday.  Oracle announced on Monday it was part of a proposal submitted by Bytedance to the U.S. Treasury Department to serve as 'trusted technology provider,' to Bytedance, providing no further details on the terms of the deal.  The Trump administration will make a decision soon on the proposed deal, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Wednesday.

    Back in 2016 when quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting racial inequality during the national anthem, Hall of Fame coach Mike Ditka said he should “get the hell out” of the country because he thought that it was a form of disrespect. Just a few short months ago when George Floyd and Breonna Taylor were both victims of police brutality, Ditka once again reiterated in July that athletes who are protesting the anthem should “get the hell out” of the United States.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump said in March that he didn't consider the coronavirus pandemic a once-in-a-lifetime leadership challenge, even as the country was going through historic shutdowns to fight the spread, according to a new interview shared by veteran journalist Bob Woodward."Was there a moment in all of this, last two months, where you said to yourself -- you know, you're waking up or whatever you're doing and you say, 'Ah, this is the leadership test of a lifetime?' " Woodward asked Trump on March 19, in a new clip aired on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" on Tuesday night. "No," Trump repliedWoodward asked, "No?"

    Let’s face an ugly possibility: President Trump could get elected again without winning the popular vote. ­Indeed, according to most experts, that’s the only way he could be re-elected. This would surely prompt another chorus of calls to scrap the Electoral College. I think that would be a mistake. I say that even as I acknowledge that Trump has undermined the Electoral College’s legitimacy — not because he owes his election to it, but because of how he has behaved since taking office. One of the Electoral College’s purposes is to broaden the president’s mandate and agenda by forcing candidates to appeal to different parts of the country and not just rack up votes in one region or a handful...

I think they have that 90-day window, so most of the players that have caught it, we do feel like they’ll be eligible for games.” College football players from other teams have also tested positive for Covid-19, with a total...

The U.S. government will review the prospective deal. That much is known. Everything else is confusion, at least to outsiders.

Oracle is pointedly not referring to its deal as a sale or acquisition. — Will Trump approve such an arrangement after having threatened a ban if TikTok remains owned by its China-based parent ByteDance?

    DENVER (CBS4) – New analysis from AAA says the price of gas is the lowest it’s been since June. It’s the second week in which demand and gasoline supply have dropped. Colorado’s statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.33, down from $2.6 a year go at this time. The national average sits at $2.19, down 37 cents from the same time in 2019. (YASUYOSHI CHIBA/AFP/Getty Images) “In a typical year, lower supply levels translate into higher pump prices. Despite consistent declines in gasoline stocks, though, that’s just not happening right now,” said Skyler McKinley, director of public affairs for AAA Colorado. “Even amid a steady supply dip, the sustained decrease in demand helped push national gas prices...
    Tom Brady’s debut with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints drew a 16.2 overnight rating, the highest metered market rating in Week 1 since 2016. The national number comes out Tuesday, but it’s projected to rank as the most-watched telecast of any kind since Super Bowl LIV, according to a Fox Sports press release. Viewership was up 2 percent over last season’s Week 1 national game (15.9/32). Those NFL ratings will be a relief for the league after the ratings for the Chiefs-Texans opener on Thursday night were down 12%. The Saints won their home opener 34-23 after Brady threw two interceptions in a disappointing performance.

    (WJZ)- The Baltimore Ravens season could not have gotten off to a much better start. The team dominated their AFC North rival, the Cleveland Browns, 38-6 on Sunday with quarterback Lamar Jackson looking every bit the reigning MVP in throwing for 275 yards and three touchdowns. But, despite the convincing win, some parts of the fan base had a bone to pick with Harbaugh for his decision to leave Jackson in the game late into the fourth quarter despite being up by 30-plus points. Jackson avoided any serious harm and eventually came out of the game to be replaced by backup Robert Griffin III, but a few hits he took late did have fans wondering why the coach left his...

    MADRID – A Spanish court on Friday sentenced a former Salvadoran colonel to more than 133 years in prison for the deaths of five Jesuit priests during El Salvador’s bloody civil war more than three decades ago. Orlando Montano, who at the time of the murders was Vice Minister of Public Security of El Salvador, may appeal the decision of the Spanish National Court, which tried the ex-military extradited by the United States. During the trial, Orlando Montano denied having planned or participated in the 1989 massacre that killed eight people on the campus of the José Simeón Cañas Central American University, or UCA. The dead were five Spanish Jesuits, among them the ideologist of...
    A NATIONAL curfew is the “obvious” next step if Brits ignore the government’s ‘rule of six’ coronavirus rules. The country could be set for another demoralising lockdown if people flout the social distancing laws amid fears a spike in infections could spiral. 3Party-goers on Birmingham's Broad Street enjoyed a night out before the 'rule of six' is brought in Pubs and restaurants are already closing in areas where there are local lockdowns, including Birmingham and Bolton, but similar drastic measures could be rolled out nationwide. The proposal, likely to be enforced over concerns people ignore social distancing after having a drink, would impact younger Brits the most – who have been blamed for the recent spike.

    (CNN)The first NFL Sunday of the season kicked off with players and teams acknowledging the racial strife that has engulfed the United States in recent months.It was a far cry from past seasons, when Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL didn't support then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protests against police brutality and racism.Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since he sparked controversy by sitting, then kneeling, during the National Anthem before several games to protest the police shootings of Black men and other social injustices faced by the Black community. His protests received some support from fellow players but also attracted criticism, most notably from President Donald Trump.All that was before the protests sparked by the death...
    The inadequate response of both the federal and state governments to the Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the United States, creating what could only be called a national security crisis. More than 190,000 Americans are dead, approximately half of them people of color. Yelp data show that more than 132,000 businesses have already closed and census data suggest that, thanks to lost wages, nearly 17% of Americans with children can’t afford to feed them enough food. In this same period, a number of defense contractors have been doing remarkably well. Lockheed Martin, the Pentagon’s top contractor, reported that, compared to 2019, its earnings are actually up — yes, up! The company’s success led the financial magazine Barron’s to call it a “pandemic star.” And those profits...

    By Kiyoshi Takenaka TOKYO (Reuters) - Yoshihide Suga, expected to become Japan's prime minister this week, hails from Akita prefecture in the north, which leads the world's most rapidly ageing country in greying and depopulation. Suga, chief cabinet secretary to outgoing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, often speaks of his modest background as a farmer's son from snowy Akita. He has spearheaded policies aimed at propping up rural Japan, which bears the brunt of the debilitating demographic change. Here are some key facts about Akita, 450 km (280 miles) north of Tokyo, whose demographic woes anticipate what awaits the nation.

    (Reuters) - National Football League players staged pre-game protests taking a knee during the playing of the U.S. national anthem on Sunday in mostly empty stadiums, avoiding the embarrassment of fans booing that overshadowed the season opener. The Jacksonville Jaguars were the only team hosting a Week One game allowing fans in on Sunday, so there were no repeats of Thursday's scenes at Arrowhead Stadium when members of the Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans were booed during a moment of silence for social justice. The Jaguars took no chances and like several teams remained in the locker room during the singing of "Lift Every Voice and Sing," often called the Black national anthem, and the "Star-Spangled...
    By The Associated Press The Latest on Week 1 in the NFL (all times EDT): 1:35 p.m. Players and coaches kicked off the 2020 season in different ways when it came to social justice messages. Some knelt. Some stood. Some didn’t come out for the national anthem. The Minnesota Vikings locked arms in the end zone about a half-hour before their game against Green Bay for the recorded performance of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” after nine family members of the late George Floyd were recognized on the video board from their perch in the upper concourse. The group included three brothers and one sister of Floyd, the handcuffed Black man who died on May 25 about three miles from...

That’s because Green Bay has made the decision to not take the gridiron for the National Anthem. According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Packers have decided as a team that they’ll be staying inside their locker room while both National Anthems are being played at U.S Bank Stadium in Minnesota.

    Saints quarterback Drew Brees underestimated the implications of making an anti-kneeling statement at the height of nationwide protests against police brutality and racism earlier this summer. He told Yahoo Sports in June that any NFL player who took a knee during the national anthem was “disrespecting the flag of the United States’ and “our country.” “Is everything right with our country right now? No, it is not,” Brees said in the interview. “We still have a long way to go. But I think what you do by standing there and showing respect to the flag with your hand over your heart, is it shows unity. It shows that we are all in this together, we can all do better and that...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP) — From across the country, National Guard contingents and firefighters were answering California’s call for help in battling a historic outbreak of wildfires. Currently, three of the state’s four largest wildfire outbreaks in history are still raging across California. The state’s largest in history — the August Complex, burning in mountainous, heavily-wooded terrain in five Northern California counties — had grown to 491,239 acres by Saturday morning with 23 percent containment. Two hundred thirty-three soldiers from the 14th Brigade Engineer Battalion based out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state joined the firefight nearly a week ago. The SCU Lightning Complex fire was still burning in Santa Clara County. It is the state’s third largest wildfire...
    Polling data released this week shows that public support of American sports has decreased significantly over the past year, largely due to the political activism of players. “The sports industry now has a negative image, on balance, among Americans as a whole, with 30% viewing it positively and 40% negatively, for a -10 net-positive score,” Gallup said. “This contrasts with the +20 net positive image it enjoyed in 2019, when 45% viewed it positively and 25% negatively.” Andy Mark Miller The drop in support came overwhelmingly from people who identify as Republican, with a 46-point drop in favorability from that voting bloc compared to a 5-point drop from Democrats since last year.

    It figures that Bob Woodward, the man who helped to take down Richard Nixon 45 years ago, would follow up with a big book about Nixon’s natural heir to the presidency, Donald Trump. Just as Nixon was undone by tape recordings he foolishly made to document his own corruption, so too Trump foolishly allowed himself to be recorded by Woodward. That’s what sets Woodward’s book “Rage” apart from all the other Trump books that have come before: We can hear the quotes in Trump’s own voice, so he can’t get away with calling it fake news. I think most of us who have been observing this surreal presidency for the past four years have wondered whether Trump is more ignorant than malevolent or...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis police called early for help from the National Guard during the unrest following George Floyd’s death, according to new evidence released by a Minnesota Senate committee. The Republican-controlled Senate Transportation and Public Safety Committee says a Minneapolis police commander sent a detailed request on May 27, just after 9 p.m. The administration of Gov. Tim Walz has said there was no formal request, so the National Guard was not called until Thursday. The committee also reports there was a plan to hold the Third Precinct without loss of life, but Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey overruled that plan. The Third Precinct was overrun and burned.
