To nip any disaster scenario in the bud, they say, Biden also needs to flip one or more “nail-in-the-coffin states” — that is, the ones that on election night itself could quickly and decisively prove that Trump has no remaining path to victory. Ohio, the site of this year's first presidential debate, could be Biden's best option. “In a normal world, I understand the tipping-point strategy,” David Pepper, chair of the Ohio Democratic Party, told Yahoo News.
The Trump administration is falling far short of its goal of having 300 million N95 respirators available in time for the flu season, according to internal documents reviewed by Yahoo News. N95 respirators protect wearers against the coronavirus better than cloth or surgical face masks; the name refers to their ability to filter out 95 percent, or all but the smallest, of particles. According to a briefing document dated Sept. 25 and sent to senior officials in the Department of Health and Human Services, the government now has 87.6 million N95 masks available, far short of the 300 million promised several months ago.
ATHENS, Greece – On Monday, Greek authorities said 12 crew members of a Maltese-flagged cruise ship on a Greek island tour with more than 1,500 people on board had tested positive for the coronavirus and have been isolated on board The Mein Schiff 6, operated by TUI Cruises. But by Tuesday afternoon, all 12 crew had tested negative three times — with a PCR test administered by the cruise line and again with a rapid antigen test conducted by Greek authorities and once more with a PCR test given by Greek authorities– indicating that the negative test may have been a false positive.
Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron used a grand jury in the Breonna Taylor case "as a shield to deflect accountability" over the decision not to directly charge any officer with the Lousivlle woman's death, it has been claimed. In court papers filed on Monday, an anonymous member of that jury called for details of the proceedings to be released "so the truth may prevail", suggesting that Mr Cameron, 34, may have mislead the public. One of the policemen involved in her death, Brett Hankinson, has been charged with first-degree "wanton endangerment" for firing rounds into a neighbouring house.
Anything can go wrong—from a faulty connection, a verbal slip-up, or, as was the case on Tuesday morning's Fox & Friends, Rudy Giuliani bellowing insane conspiracy theories at the nation with no obvious way to stop him. It's always a risk to allow Giuliani to share his wildly unpredictable stream of consciousness live. The man who was named Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2001 has long since been reduced to sharing the latest Trumpist conspiracy theories on any cable news channel that has the budget to cover any possible subsequent defamation lawsuits.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court weighed Tuesday whether to go along with conservatives who argue that 130,000 voters should be removed from the rolls in the hotly contested presidential battleground state, while the Democratic attorney general defended not purging them. The Wisconsin case is one of several lawsuits across the country, many in battleground states, that seek to purge voters from registration rolls. It is being closely watched because President Donald Trump won the swing state by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016.
A 71-year-old mother was found dead after school officials asked police to do a welfare check at her home, according to Texas police. Teachers at the Forney Independent School District “sensed something was wrong” Friday when two students were absent and their parent could not be reached, a district spokesperson told McClatchy.

The white nationalist nicknamed the “Crying Nazi” after he was featured in a documentary about clashes in Charlottesville has been found guilty of extortion and threatening to rape a woman. Christopher Cantwell, 39, was convicted on Monday of one count of transmitting extortionate communications and one count of threatening to injure property or reputation, according to the US Attorney's Office for the District of New Hampshire. Federal prosecutors said Cantwell used the Telegram messaging app to threaten to rape a Missouri man's wife if he did not give him personal information about the leader of a white supremacist group called Bowl Patrol.
A sizable minority of Republicans say U.S. President Donald Trump has not paid his fair share of taxes and worry that his family business has influenced his decisions in office, yet most are still voting to give him a second term, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling released on Tuesday. The national online poll, conducted on Monday and Tuesday, followed a New York Times investigation that found Trump, a self-described billionaire, is deeply in debt and has regularly paid little to nothing in federal income taxes over much of the past two decades. The poll found that three in 10 Republicans were concerned that Trump's personal finances have influenced his decisions as president, and two out of 10 Republicans said they do not think Trump has paid his "fair share" of income taxes.

Germany has ordered new restrictions to contain a second wave of the coronavirus, but stopped far short of the sort of measures seen in the UK. Angela Merkel and regional leaders agreed not to impose a new lockdown or a blanket limit on gatherings like the UK's “rule of six”. Instead public gatherings will be limited to 25, but only in areas where the rate of infection rises over government safety limits.
The U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena to compel a senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official to testify about accusations that it had meddled in intelligence reports for political purposes. The accusation stems from a whistleblower complaint made by former DHS intelligence chief Brian Murphy, who has alleged that top DHS officials and a White House official sought to skew official intelligence reports. Adam Schiff, the committee's Democratic chairman, said he had subpoenaed acting DHS intelligence chief Joseph Maher to testify publicly on Friday about what he said were DHS efforts to stall the committee's investigation into Murphy's allegations.
Former Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn made a new public appearance in Lebanon Tuesday during which he launched an initiative with a local university to help the country that is undergoing a severe economic and financial crisis. It is Ghosn's second appearance in public since he was smuggled from Japan in late December to his ancestral Lebanon. Ghosn declined to elaborate about the details of his arrival in Lebanon, saying it happened in “dramatic circumstances” and also refused to answer questions regarding two Americans who allegedly helped him flee Japan to Lebanon through Turkey.
President Donald Trump reportedly mocks his Christian supporters in private, while repeatedly praising them in public. Several former aides to Mr Trump told McKay Coppins at The Atlantic that the president has mocked Christian supporters and donors in private throughout his presidency. Mr Trump has repeatedly praised conservative Christian groups in speeches and interviews over the last four years, and has attempted to position Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden as being against Christianity.
NASA and Roscosmos determined that a leak on the International Space Station is located in the Zvezda Service Module module on the station's Russian side. On Monday night, NASA flight controllers woke the three men living on the International Space Station.

He hit his stride once he shifted full time to the journalistic realm, first at the Pacific Northwest news website Crosscut and then as editorial page editor for the Everett Daily Herald, the paper of record in his family's longtime hometown. While Jackson had battled cancer since 2016, enduring countless rounds of radiation and chemo, Laurie said his descent into death "was really fast," adding, "We decided on March 11 to stop all treatment and he died 10 days later. So we didn't have the chance to thoughtfully think through whether he wanted me to take over his [Twitter] feed or retire it."
A Nissan employee testified Tuesday that he worked with another former Nissan executive, American Greg Kelly to find ways to pay the automaker's former chairman, Carlos Ghosn without fully disclosing his compensation. Toshiaki Ohnuma, a star witnesses for the prosecution, described to the Tokyo District Court his job in human resources at Nissan Motor Co., where he said he handled executive compensation matters, including working with Kelly on finding ways to pay Ghosn without disclosing it. Disclosing annual executive pay over 100 million yen (about $1 million) became a requirement in Japan from 2010.
