First it was just a handful conservative rabble-rousers calling out House GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney on Tuesday for defying Donald Trump on the coronavirus pandemic, foreign affairs decisions, and other matters. Then Senator Rand Paul piled on, retweeting Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz' message calling for her removal and writing that the Wyoming congresswoman's behaviour was "unacceptable." Now, the president's son, Donald Trump Jr, has pounced.
An estimated crowd of 2,000 people participating in the protests in Portland, Oregon, “tore open the doors of a federal courthouse and then beat back the agents inside” in the early hours of Tuesday morning, a journalist on the scene reported on Twitter. Bellingcat writer Robert Evans posted multiple videos online that appeared to show federal agents shooting what are assumed to be non-lethal projectiles at protesters, including a parents group, Wall of Moms, out of “murder holes” in a wooden structure built around the courthouse to protect it. The new clashes represent a further escalation in the conflict between protesters and federal agents sent into the city by the Trump administration.

Amid a moment of national reckoning on racial issues and the mourning of one of the country's most revered civil rights leaders, new numbers from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll show that American voters have become significantly more aware of racial discrimination and more sympathetic to those protesting to end it, even as the country remains deeply divided over the prevalence of bigotry and its root causes. The poll finds that voters in America are now more likely to say that people of color experience discrimination, to describe athletes kneeling in protest of racial inequality as appropriate, to view the Black Lives Matter movement as a positive force, and to support the removal of Confederate monuments in public spaces. The poll — which was conducted July 9-12, before the death of Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., the civil rights leader — found that a majority of voters, 56 percent, say American society is racist, while 40 percent disagree.
Attorneys for the former Atlanta police officer charged with felony murder in the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks sought to remove the district attorney prosecuting the case Monday. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard has repeatedly made comments to inflame public sentiment against Officer Garrett Rolfe, has issued contradictory statements about whether a stun gun is a deadly weapon and is under investigation himself, attorneys Noah Pines and William Thomas Jr. said in a court filing. “Paul Howard has systematically sought to deprive Garrett Rolfe of a fair trial and impartial jury since the day he announced his decision to arrest Garrett Rolfe,” the attorneys said.
A giant meteor shower bombarded Earth and the Moon 800 million years ago with more than 30 times the force of the asteroid strike that killed the dinosaurs, new research showed Tuesday. Japanese scientists examined images taken by the Kaguya lunar orbiter and found that an enormous asteroid -- at least 100 kilometres (60 miles) in diameter -- broke up and plunged into the Earth-Moon System, having a profound impact on life on our planet. The probability of an asteroid that size hitting Earth is roughly once in 100 million years, and impact craters of meteor strikes created before 600 million years ago have been erased by aeons of erosion and other geological processes.
Former Vice President Joe Biden may be the only one at next month's Democratic National Convention who ends up giving a major speech from the host city of Milwaukee, the Daily Beast reported Monday. The news would be the latest blow to Milwaukee, which initially expected the convention to be a major event that would draw some 50,000 people to Wisconsin's largest city this summer. Convention organizers declined to confirm or deny the report Monday night.
Planned Parenthood of Greater New York announced on Tuesday that it would remove the name of founder Margaret Sanger from its Manhattan clinic because of Sanger's support for eugenics. Sanger founded the first abortion clinic in the U.S. in 1916 in Brooklyn, and in 1921 established the American Birth Control League, which subsequently changed its name to Planned Parenthood. While Sanger is regarded as a pioneer by pro-choice advocates, she was also a supporter of eugenics, including the sterilization of disabled people who could not be treated.
Several media outlets have identified Roy Den Hollander as the gunman who shot the son and husband of New Jersey federal Judge Esther Salas.

Salas' son, Daniel Anderl, was killed and her husband, Mark Anderl, was seriously injured.
The US city of Portland has seen another night of clashes between demonstrators and federal law enforcement officers sent by President Donald Trump to end almost two months of anti-racism protests there. Police in Portland, Oregon, said federal officers fired tear gas to disperse a large crowd of protesters - some armed with hammers - who had gathered outside a courthouse and were throwing projectiles. There have been nightly rallies in the city since the death of George Floyd in police custody in May, but clashes have escalated in recent days.
A restaurant owner in New York burnt a table that Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein used to dine at. Zach Erdem, who owns 75 Main in Southampton, New York, said Table 1 – which both men had dined at – provided only “bad energy”. “I'm sick of the bad energy of this table,” Mr Erdem told CNN.

A Kentucky couple was placed on house arrest after one of them tested positive for coronavirus and refused to sign documents agreeing to quarantine at home. Elizabeth Linscott and her husband, Isaiah, displayed their ankle monitors on NBC affiliate WAVE last week.

Lawyers for former national security adviser Michael Flynn urged an appeals court Monday to immediately shut down the lingering fight over whether a lower-court judge must dismiss the criminal case against him. "The district court has hijacked and extended a criminal prosecution for almost three months for its own purposes,” Flynn's attorneys wrote in a filing with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Flynn has been fighting for months against U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is seeking to hold a hearing on whether he must dismiss the case against the former Trump White House official after the Justice Department moved to drop the charge against him.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has drawn mockery and criticism – primarily from conservatives – for verbal missteps throughout his presidential campaign. One Facebook post pulled out two statistical claims, connected to gun violence and COVID-19. Joe Biden said 150 MILLION were lost to gun violence AND we just lost ANOTHER 120 million to covid-19.
Hundreds of residents of the far eastern Russian city of Khabarovsk protested on Tuesday against President Vladimir Putin's handling of a regional political crisis that has sparked rare and sustained anti-Kremlin street protests. In an apparent move to defuse tensions, Putin on Monday named a new acting governor to head the region of Khabarovsk from the same party as the popular previous regional leader, Sergei Furgal, who was arrested on murder charges he denies. Furgal's July 9 detention has triggered more than a week of unrest from supporters who feel he is being belatedly punished for defeating a candidate from the ruling pro-Putin United Russia party in 2018.
China's CanSino Biologics reported preliminary results of its Phase II COVID-19 vaccine trial Monday, and there was promising news. Both vaccines, among the top contenders in the global race for a coronavirus immunization drug, produced strong immune responses with only minor side effects, but older trial participants showed significantly weaker responses in the CanSino trial, suggesting two doses may be needed. CanSino's vaccine appears "pretty weak compared to other vaccine candidates (to the extent that comparisons are possible)," said Prof. John Moore at Weill Cornell Medical School.
Black Lives Matter murals have appeared in several US cities, including outside the White House in Washington, DC. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts Redwood City, California, last week removed a Black Lives Matter mural that a resident painted as part of an Independence Day public-art celebration, CBS San Francisco reported. The city removed the mural after a local lawyer said she should be able to paint "MAGA 2020" on the same street, the report said.
