Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald said Thursday he had resigned from The Intercept after the US investigative media outlet refused to publish his article critical of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Greenwald, one of the first journalists to report on the Edward Snowden documents on US mass surveillance, said he was leaving the website he started in 2014 with two other journalists. "The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept's editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden," Greenwald said in a blog post.

President Donald Trump brought a series of guests on stage with him during a campaign rally in Arizona on Wednesday, but raised eyebrows with his treatment of the only local Republican senator Martha McSally. Mr Trump initially said Ms McSally â “ who is also fighting for re-election next week â “ was â greatâ and â respected by everybodyâ . But the presidentâ s own tone was less than respectful, as he ordered the senator up onto the stage and told her she had â one minuteâ to speak.
Former Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. filed a state lawsuit Wednesday against the evangelical school founded by his father, claiming he was wrongly ousted from his leadership post. Falwell had led the school for 13 years before he resigned under pressure in August amid a series of embarrassing scandals, culminating with him posting to Instagram a photo of himself on his yacht with a woman who was not his wife and with his pants unzipped. In a complaint in state court in Lynchburg, Virginia, Falwell's lawyers alleged that Liberty defamed Falwell and breached the former president's contract.

The knife-wielding assailant, who was wounded by police gunfire, allegedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” several times, including while he was being detained, in what has come to be known as a battle cry for Islamic extremists in Europe. The city's mayor, Christian Estrosi, wrote immediately after the killings that “everything suggests a terrorist attack,” and said the unnamed suspect had been arrested and taken to a hospital in the city.

Joe Biden plans to scrap what he calls the "dangerous failure" of President Donald Trump's maximum pressure policy on Iran should he win the U.S. election, but after years of confrontation his diplomacy-first approach to a historic Middle East foe could prove an unforgiving challenge. Vice president under President Barack Obama when Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with six powers was struck, Biden has pledged that if Tehran resumes compliance with the pact he will return to the agreement, which Trump quit in 2018, reimposing sanctions. With Iran's economy crippled, its ties with Washington have been at boiling point ever since, and an international consensus over Iran's nuclear work -- which the West suspected was aimed at creating a nuclear bomb -- has been in disarray.
Stacks of boxes mail are seen at the U.S. Post Office Justin Sullivan/Getty Images The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) argued that there is no "constitutional right" to timely mail delivery after its own data showed that on-time delivery times had plummeted ahead of Election Day. The Department of Justice, which is defending the USPS in a lawsuit brought by New York and other states over changes ordered by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a top donor to President Donald Trump, argued that the mail slowdown cannot be unlawful because there is no guarantee in the Constitution of timely mail delivery, Bloomberg News reported.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg should have retired before 2016 so president Donald Trump would never have had the opportunity to fill her vacated seat when she died, Bill Maher has said. The liberal-leaning 'Real Time' talk show host also suggested Democrats failed to properly plan for the possibility that Ginsburg, known as RBG, might die while serving on the bench. Mr Obama had a private lunch with RBG and is understood to have brought up her retirement, pointing out Democrats might lose the Senate, meaning he could lose the chance to appoint a justice.

Local news reports described the meeting as “serious” as the two sides got down to technicalities and the Lebanese delegation pushed for an additional 1,430 square kilometers (550 square miles) to be included in Lebanese territory.

In polls wrapping just a week before Election Day, Democratic nominee Joe Biden has posted no new gains in the swing states of Florida, Iowa, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, a Quinnipiac University survey out Thursday reveals. Meanwhile Trump's support has grown in Florida, Iowa, and Pennsylvania — and enough so in Florida and Iowa to be well in contention of winning.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has hit back at criticism from Fox Newsâ Laura Ingraham over her appearance on the cover of Vanity Fair wearing â outfits worth $14,000â . On Thursday Ocasio-Cortez tweeted a scathing response to Ingrahamâ s retweet of the broadcasters article titled: â AOC appears in Vanity Fair in outfits worth $14,000 to curse out Trumpâ "100 per cent worth it, would do it again," the progressive Democratic representative said. The congresswoman, who is bidding for re-election in New York's 14th congressional district, then went one step further to undermine the broadcaster's criticism of her with sarcastic follow-up.
Bingham wrote that the Vaccine Taskforce recognised that "many, and possibly all, of these vaccines could fail", adding the focus has been on jabs that are expected to elicit immune responses in those over 65. Environment Minister George Eustice said on Wednesday that a vaccine would be the answer to the COVID-19 crisis, but that Bingham's analysis was "probably right." Bingham also cautioned that the global manufacturing capacity for vaccines was vastly inadequate for the billions of doses that were needed, and that Britain's manufacturing capability to date had been "equally scarce".
“Many are longtime Republicans wrestling with what they see as a choice between two lousy candidates.”
“Some undecideds turn out to be people who’ve long felt alienated from the two big political parties.”
“They’re not following the 24-hour news cycle. The election and politics are just not a high priority.”
“One common trait: at this stage of the game, the undecided voter doesn’t fit into an easy political profile.”
“More realistically...these voters may not be motivated to vote at all in the 2020 election.”
