              Live from Music Row Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. –  host Leahy welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio. At the end of the second hour, Carmichael weighed in on institutional constraints and the Democratic Party’s party disdain for constraints. He added that here in Nashville, ‘Mayor Cooper and his and his ilk are trying to thwart the will of the voters and thwart the institutional constraints that the that our Charter provides.’ (Amy Coney Barrett clip plays) Leahy: And that is Amy Coney Barrett Saturday after the president nominated...
    Judge Michael Watson of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Ohio ruled against changing Ohio’s signature-matching process to verify absentee ballots on Sunday. The League of Women Voters of Ohio, the A. Philip Randolph Institute and two Ohio voters whose primary ballots were rejected due to mismatched signatures challenged Ohio’s law that requires election officials to match the voter’s signature on the ballot with the signature on the envelope containing the ballot. Election officials can challenge the vote if they determine the signatures do not match and must notify the voter that there’s a defect in the ballot, according to state law. Voters can correct the signature no later than the seventh day after Election Day in...
    When Meng Wanzhou's flight landed in Vancouver on 1 December 2018, she was expecting to make only a brief stopover. But nearly two years on, the chief financial officer of Huawei and daughter of the telecoms giant's founder looks set for a prolonged stay - placing considerable strain on relations between Canada and China. The next round of hearings in a protracted legal battle over her extradition to the US begin on Monday. Those involved say the whole process could drag on for as long as a decade, leaving Canada caught in the escalating tension between Washington and Beijing, focused on one of China's most prominent companies. At the centre of the story is a sixteen-page corporate PowerPoint presentation....
    On this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) urged his Democrat colleagues to allow for a “respectful process” for the confirmation of Supreme Court associate justice appointee Amy Coney Barrett. Kennedy argued the process should proceed, given election “have consequences.” “[To] Debbie [Stabenow] and my colleagues in the Senate,” he said. “I hope they let us have a respectful process. We don’t need another freak show. I mean, I hope they won’t get into the foothills of KiKi and bring back Michael Avenatti and all that other stuff. Let us focus on the nominee. Now to answer your question, I’m rather fond of the Constitution. I have read it. Its provisions about filling a Supreme Court...
    Senator John Kennedy (R- LA) said on Fox News Sunday Democrats better not turn the upcoming Supreme Court fight into another “freakshow.” He told Brit Hume they’d better not “bring back Michael Avenatti and all that other stuff — let us focus on the nominee.” Kennedy went on to defend Republicans acting on Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination when they didn’t four years ago on Merrick Garland, saying, “When the Democrats are in charge of the process, they do what they think is right, consistent with the Constitution. When the Republicans are in charge of the process, they do what they think is right. And I think that’s what our founders intended. I think our founders intended elections to have...
    Australian celebrity chef Matt Preston has shared a foolproof recipe for making delicious hummus at home - his favourite dip on the market.  The former MasterChef judge, 59, told Delicious magazine that 'great hummus should never be grainy from undercooked chickpeas or bitter from old or cheap tahini'. Preston said the hummus served up at Melbourne's Bar Saracenis is the best he had eaten, as head chef Tom Sarafian takes three days to soak, rinse, cook and blitz large Ord River chickpeas - but there are some shortcuts to make the process quicker.  Australian celebrity chef Matt Preston (pictured) has revealed how to make his favourite dip, hummus, at home To make great hummus at home, Preston recommends following Yotam...

The DIY enthusiast took to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK to share before and after pictures of the entrance to her house. 2A woman was fed up with her boring white front doorCredit: FACEBOOK She captioned the post: "Instead of buying a whole new door, I just used some frenchic paint ‘wise old sage’, along with some white masonary and ta-da!

    America faces yet another challenge ahead of the swiftly approaching presidential election, and it will thrust a major player, Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), back into the spotlight after weeks of largely avoiding it. Allies and critics alike have noticed Harris’s unusual absence from the spotlight — particularly striking, given her role as Joe Biden’s (D) running mate. While she has lodged attacks at Trump, she has largely conducted herself in the same manner as Biden, remaining relatively publicly subdued and reserving her sharpest attacks for Twitter rather than during in-person campaign events, of which there have been few. While the exact reasons remain uncertain, it is possible that Democrats fear her more radical views — and...

    A new report says that Amy Coney Barrett will be President Donald Trump’s pick to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. According to CNN, citing multiple senior Republican sources with knowledge of the process, the president has landed on Coney Barrett as his nominee to replace the late Justice Ginsburg. Amy Coney Barrett has been the heavy favorite throughout the process among Washington insiders. In an interview earlier this week, ABC News White House correspondent Jon Karl told Mediaite Editor in Chief Aidan McLaughlin that the pick had been “all but determined” to be Coney Barrett. CNN quoted a former senior administration official who said that the Coney Barrett pick has long been a...
    By The Associated Press UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The Latest from the U.N. General Assembly (all times EDT): 10:30 a.m. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has called for an international conference early next year to “launch a genuine peace process” while criticizing the recent decision of two Arab countries to normalize relations with Israel. In an address before the U.N. General Assembly on Friday, Abbas seemed to acknowledge the growing international weariness with the decades-old conflict, saying “I wonder what more I can say after all I’ve said on countless occasions.” The Palestinians have rejected President Donald Trump’s proposal to end the conflict that overwhelmingly favors Israel, and have officially cut off contacts with both the U.S. and Israel. Instead, they...
    (CNN)Operation Warp Speed, the mission to develop an effective Covid-19 vaccine, seeks to deliver 300,000 doses by January 2021. According to projections from the University of Washington, by then the US death toll from the novel coronavirus will likely have reached nearly 400,000. Edgar MarcuseWhat evidence of vaccine effectiveness -- balanced by what assurance of safety -- would prompt you to seek a dose of one of these novel vaccines to protect an elderly family member or for yourself?Optimal use of these Covid-19 vaccines will depend on the confidence of the American people in the processes leading up to the vaccines' release. The Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Biologics License Application (BLA) is the standard path to vaccine licensing. The...
    Since the first 20 Oversight Board members were appointed back in May, we have been helping to get them up and running as quickly as possible. That has included finalizing a new software tool that allows members to securely access and review case information from anywhere in the world; and training them on our Community Standards and policy development processes. We look forward to the board beginning to hear cases in mid to late October. Shortly after launching the board, Facebook announced that it wouldn’t be ready until “late fall,” leading to fears that it would arrive too late for the US elections. It appears now that it will come sooner, though with not a lot of time to spare...
    The week of Oct. 12 marks the likely start of confirmation hearings for the next nominee to the Supreme Court. Republican sources on Capitol Hill signaled the process will begin mid-October in the Senate Judiciary Committee, where lawmakers will spend several days questioning and then voting on the female nominee President Trump plans to announce on Saturday at 5 p.m. Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, has not announced the schedule, but the Oct. 12 start date confirmed by Republicans sources allows the nominee time to complete pre-hearing paperwork and collection of background material by staff. Perhaps most importantly, it allows time for the nominee to hold private meetings with individual senators. A GOP aide told the...
    Sen. Lisa Murkowski clarified this week that she would not rule out voting on President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. “I know everybody wants to ask the question, ‘Will you confirm the nominee?’” the Alaska Republican said Tuesday. “We don’t have a nominee yet. You and I don’t know who that is. And so I can’t confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I don’t know who the nominee is.” Murkowski said on Sunday that she would not vote on Trump’s nominee, citing how Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death on Friday is so close to November's election. “For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme...
    White House officials were accused on Wednesday of improperly trying to block former national security adviser John Bolton from releasing his best-selling memoir by falsely claiming it contained classified information. The accusation was made in a letter filed with a federal court in Washington by a lawyer for former National Security Council official Ellen Knight, a career official who oversaw the prepublication review of Bolton's 'The Room Where It Happened.' Knight had by late April cleared the memoir for its planned June 23 publication, only to then see the process 'commandeered by political appointees seemingly for a political purpose,' leading to a U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit to block publication, her lawyer Kenneth Wainstein said in the letter. White...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — They did everything right – secured a space, put the money up, and now they’re waiting for a marijuana license. But six months later, they have heard nothing from the state. As CBS 2’s Tara Molina reported, some social equity applicants say they can’t hold on much longer. After nearly five months of state delays and thousands invested, Nakisha Hobbs and her partners said if the state doesn’t make a decision soon, their budget will decide for them. “We are a collective of three Black women,” Hobbs said. An educator who was born and raised on the city’s West Side, Hobbs knows Chicago. “I currently live in the North Lawndale community,” she said. When the state...
    Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ), who is in the middle of a tough election fight with Mark Kelly, dismissed the suggestion her race might sway her vote on the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice. McSally said she was relying on the Constitution for her decision. “The guiding document is the Constitution. Look, I put my life on the line for 26 years in the military,” she said. “I raised my right hand at the oath of the Constitution. The president nominates, and the Senate confirms, and we will do that without delay. It will be a thorough process. It is very important for the future of our country to fill this position,...
    Now that the college and NFL seasons are finally underway (for most), football analogies are back in vogue. Imagine the start of the fourth quarter, when suddenly one team convinces the official to add a fifth down and make field goals worth as much as touchdowns. After three quarters of play, does this seem reasonable? Whereas in 2016, Hillary Clinton thought that total yardage would win her the game, this time around, Democrats are flat-out changing the rules of how we count votes. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling on Sept. 17 all but guaranteed that we will not know the results of the 2020 presidential election the night of November 3. In response to challenges from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party,...

    Bradley Cortright September 21, 2020 0 Comments Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) is speaking out to oppose holding a confirmation vote on a Supreme Court nominee before the November 3 general election.  As Republicans appear poised to move forward with the confirmation process on President Donald Trump’s forthcoming Supreme Court nominee, Democrats say the process should wait until after the election. In a statement on Monday, Manchin said, “For the sake of the integrity of our courts and legal system, I do not believe the U.S. Senate should vote on a U.S. Supreme Court nominee before the November, 3, election.” “For Mitch McConnell and my Republican colleagues to rush through this process after refusing to even meet with Judge Merrick Garland in 2016...

    The death of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has already set off a pulse between Republicans and Democrats over the search for a replacement, an issue that will radically change the dynamics of the campaign for the November presidential election. The Supreme Court is made up of nine judges with life positions and who have the power to change the laws of the country for decades. Specifically, they play a crucial role on issues such as abortion, migrant rights, privacy, the death penalty and the possession of weapons. Magistrates are appointed by the president and have to be confirmed by the Senate. For the Christian right, the Supreme Court is a central...

    La Paz, Sep 19 . .- The Ombudsman’s Office denounced some violent acts this Saturday during the campaign for the general elections in Bolivia. These acts “further deepen the political polarization that is being experienced in the country before the general elections of October 18,” this entity warned in a statement.

    The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just a few weeks before the presidential election heightens the usual political concerns surrounding the filling of a Supreme Court vacancy. The timeline for naming a replacement will be compressed. President Trump has already indicated that he intends to make a nomination quickly, declaring in a tweet on Saturday, "We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices." "We have this obligation, without delay!" he wrote.  Get updates from the campaign trail delivered to your inbox Mr. Trump is likely to...

    (CNN)Supreme Court nominations are legacy-making events for presidents. It's that important.But the system for confirming new members to the bench, with just nine justices and lifetime appointments, has become as partisan as the rest of our politics.

It was a craven political move that's burned white hot Democratic anger ever since.The only thing worse will be if, now that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died just 46 days before the next election, Republicans are able to push a new justice through because it's an election year.In 2016, Senate...

    President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday to suggest that the results of the 2020 presidential election may never be accurately counted due to mail-in voting, Reuters reported. In response, Twitter put a warning label about accurate voting information on the tweet. Trump has consistently tried to advance the narrative that the results of the upcoming presidential election will be suspect, even going so far as to accuse Democrats of “rigging” the election. In particular, he’s been adamant that voting by mail, a process that several states have enacted or expanded this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, will open up the process to fraud. On Thursday, he repeated a similar refrain again. “Because of the new and unprecedented...
    Snowflake IPO begins trading at the NYSE on Sept. 16th, 2020.Source: NYSE One of the biggest problems with the traditional IPO process (and there are several) is that it's impossible to say whether a deal is a success or a failure.  Snowflake, the cloud-based data management company that's 2020's biggest IPO, jumped 112 percent in its debut Wednesday. For investors who received allocation at the $120-per-share offering price (which, by the way, was 41 percent higher than the range Snowflake had initially marketed earlier in September), that's a win. It's also a win for earlier backers, like Altimeter Capital and Sutter Hill, who have made back multiple times their original investments.  "The heart's beating a little faster right now," said...

    More than 51 million U.S. workers can thank the Paycheck Protection Program for helping provide a portion of their wages during the coronavirus shutdown.  The $659 billion program, authorized under the CARES Act, let small businesses take out loans to stay afloat and keep workers on the payroll. Even better, some or all of the loan may be forgiven if the businesses meet certain requirements.  The process to get a PPP loan was pretty straightforward: Business owners went to their bank and applied for a loan to keep the doors open.  But behind the scenes, the lending process involved a few extra steps, according to Sahil Bloom, a financial educator and vice president at Altamont Capital Partners.  Check out this video to...
    by Amy Dacey, American University With the U.S. presidential election rapidly approaching at a time of extraordinary political and social disruption, the possibility of an unclear or contested result is coming under scrutiny. Unlike many other countries, where the president or prime minister is chosen by direct popular vote, in the U.S., a candidate may win the popular vote and still not be elected to the nation’s highest office. The U.S. also differs from most other democracies in that it has no independent electoral commission to certify the final vote count. So who actually confirms the winner? Step #1: Before Election Day American democracy has many elected officials – state, local and national – and many processes for getting into...

    Health fear that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may be rushing to approve a coronavirus vaccine due to political pressure from Trump administration, The Hill reported. Any inoculation that’s produced too early could undermine confidence in the process and lead to fewer Americans getting vaccinated.

However, with the COVID-19 pandemic currently claiming hundreds of thousands of lives and wrecking economies across the world, time is of the essence.

    Following an investigation by the Pentagon, the Department of Defense says it is standing by its decision to award a $10 billion cloud computing contract to Microsoft, not Amazon, the latest in an ongoing legal battle over the lucrative infrastructure project. On Friday, the Department of Defense said in a statement that it had completed its investigation into the awarding of the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract, an investigation it pursued to determine whether there were discrepancies in the procurement process. The Defense Department said it had “determined that Microsoft’s proposal continues to represent the best value to the Government,” adding that “contract performance will not begin immediately.” That’s because, in February, a judge issued a temporary injunction...

    (CNN)This year, as a result of the pandemic, we will likely see a dramatic increase in absentee voting, but some states will not verify or count those ballots before Election Day. This delay could be a major problem for American democracy, sowing doubt in the results and distrust in our electoral process. The primary season has already highlighted this risk. Following its June primary, New York did not count absentee ballots quickly, and voters waited weeks to find out who won key state legislature and congressional races. By the time results were announced, two candidates and several voters had filed a lawsuit against the state, President Donald Trump had falsely pointed to the delay as evidence that mail-in voting is...

    The grand-nephew of President John F.

And seemed on course to dethrone Mr. Markey, elected to Congress for 44 years, including seven in the Senate. Massachusetts being a Democratic stronghold, the winner of this late primary is almost guaranteed to be elected in November. Elected to the House of Representatives in 2012, Joseph Kennedy III, a telegenic Democrat of 39, presented himself as closer to the field, to modest families and to minorities than his 74-year-old rival – all arguments that allowed young “progressive” democratic activists to dethrone congressional...

    Most Americans believe the speedy approval process for a coronavirus vaccine is being driven by politics rather than science, a new survey finds. Conducted by STAT and the Harris Poll, it found that roughly the same number of Republicans and Democrats feared an inoculation was being rushed into production due to pressure from the White House.  Additionally, more than two-thirds of US adults are confident the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) would approve a COVID-19 vaccine if it is found to be safe and effective.  President Donald Trump has insisted a jab will hit the market before the presidential election on November 3 but many health experts say it is not possible before at least winter 2021.  A...

    Apple’s iMacs are pretty beautiful products, but engineer and designer Michael Pick managed to make Apple’s iMac absolutely adorable by shrinking it. Pick uploaded a video to his YouTube channel demonstrating the process of making the “world’s smallest iMac” from beginning to end. That includes designing the project and 3D printing the various parts, testing the Raspberry Pi’s (which powers the computer) fit in an attempt to make it “as thin as possible,” and applying the primer and painting. The entire video is set to some pretty stellar lo-fi hip-hop beats, creating a pretty serene experience. It ends with Pick benchmarking his “iMac” by playing Minecraft — as you do.

Peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban were a condition of the U.S.-Taliban deal, which ended America’s deadly and costly 19-year war there but did not resolve the Taliban’s organized military campaign to unseat the Afghan government and rule the country under strict Islamic law.

    Just four years ago, the Philadelphia 76ers had a ton of picks, lots of promising young players, and unlimited flexibility. How did they end up here? When Sam Hinkie resigned as the Philadelphia 76ers’ general manager in April 2016, the team was wrapping up one of the worst seasons in NBA history. They would finish 10-72, and in a testament to how unsettled practically everything was with the team that year, 15 different players started at least one game for them that year. But what they lacked in stability, they made up for, at least in theory, with a plan — an overarching strategy to return to contention after several years of tanking in the hopes of maximizing their chances...
    Drug development is a long, costly process. In non-pandemic periods, a new pharmaceutical product could gobble up a billion dollars and a decade from start to finish. So as thousands of people per week die of COVID-19 in the United States, researchers are scrambling to make headway via their only shot at speeding up the process: finding a drug that already exists.  The problem is that even if they limit themselves to testing only those drugs that have already been approved by the FDA, researchers still have 20,000 drug possibilities to sort through. That’s where AI comes in.  Welcome to Rabbit Hole, where we dive deep on the biggest story. It’s for Beast Inside members only. Join up today.
    The following article is an opinion piece and reflects the views of only the author and not those of AllOnGeorgia. In an era when there are near-daily calls for reforms in policing and the justice system as a whole, we don’t give nearly enough attention to the role the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has in what happens after an officer involved shooting. The agency has full discretion to decide whether or not – and to what degree – an officer is held accountable in use of force investigations, yet hardly anyone considers that the GBI has assumed a duty that was never delegated.  It used to be that...

    Kids, teachers, administrators, other school employees, and their loved ones are deeply concerned with how the new school year will work in light of COVID-19. In much of the country, the coronavirus is simply too widespread to allow a return to in-person education with any reasonable degree of safety. That reality hasn’t stopped some absurdly irresponsible Republican officials from pushing hard to do so anyway (here’s looking at you, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott). New York City, however, has gone from being the pandemic’s American epicenter to the one very large city with infection rates low enough to—according to the current plan—offer at least some regular in-person instruction at every public school, including the ones my children attend. No one knows how it’s...

    Congress has yet to pass a second round of stimulus checks, but we already know how the potential new payments will be funded.  The CARES Act in March authorized about $300 billion in stimulus checks to go directly to Americans' bank accounts. The payments process involves an interesting way to borrow and figuratively print money, according to Sahil Bloom, a financial educator and vice president at Altamont Capital Partners.  Bloom said that the government can create money without actually printing physical currency. "We live in a digital age. So really money is just numbers on a screen," he said.  The undertaking involves three key players: Congress, the Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve.
