Shortly after the Democratic office opened, a Trump campaign office opened up next door, leading to some tension — the Biden office closed early on the evening of their counterpart's opening — a sign of the times in a town of 3,000 people in a swing county in a swing state. We've got more Trump supporters than Democrats here, but a lot of people were just really excited to see us here. We have given out literally thousands of signs from this office and we have people coming in here daily,” Chelton told Yahoo News.
Nine prisoners were killed when rival gangs clashed with knives Friday in one of the Philippines' most overcrowded prisons, officials said. It was not immediately clear what set off the violence between the Sputnik and Commando gangs before dawn at New Bilibid Prison in metropolitan Manila. Seven other inmates were wounded in the clash, Bureau of Corrections spokesman Gabriel Chaclag said.
CNN has found another controversial event Amy Coney Barrett didn't inform the Senate about. After her nomination to the Supreme Court, the Senate asked Barrett to list every talk she had given, as well as provide a transcript of the event. But she failed to mention speaking at two events held by right-to-life student groups at the University of Notre Dame, CNN reports.
A prominent statistic cited by those concerned about election fraud — that millions of ballots have supposedly gone missing over the last several years — is misleading and exaggerated, the top election official in Washington state said in an interview. “Not everyone chooses to return a ballot,” said Kim Wyman, Washington's secretary of state. As part of his ongoing effort to undermine confidence in the legitimacy of the presidential election, President Trump has referenced conservative media reports that millions of mail-in ballots routinely disappear.
Gunmen riding on a motorcycle in southwestern Pakistan shot and killed a popular local singer and father of a human rights activist outside his home, police said Friday. The fatal shooting took place on Thursday in the town of Turbat, in the country's restive southwestern Baluchistan province. The slain singer, Hanif Chamrok, is the father of women's right activist Tayyaba Baloch.
One of the Democratic Party's most senior figures has openly criticised the UK's system for approving a Covid-19 vaccine, suggesting that the process for ensuring its safety is not as rigorous as that followed in America. Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives - one half of the US Congress - made the unexpected comment during a press conference on Friday. She said that people must be “very careful” about the UK drive to approve a vaccine, suggesting that America's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had a tougher criteria for screening any vaccine than its equivalent in Britain.
Among their missions was to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer from her vacation home, blow up a bridge, storm the state Capitol and target police, court records show. It was early 2020 when the civil war plot landed on the FBI's radar.
President Trump continued to hail an experimental monoclonal antibody treatment as a “cure” for COVID-19, telling conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh in a Friday interview that it sped his recovery from the disease and was “better than a vaccine.” “I was not in great shape, but we have a medicine that healed me, that fixed me,” Trump said of the antibody “cocktail” manufactured by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. Since being released on Monday from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he was treated for three days after being admitted with a high fever, chills and breathing problems, Trump has often pointed to the antibody therapy he undertook at the hospital as a “cure” for COVID-19.
China's decades-long campaign against religious freedom has made it the largest of the most dangerous countries in the world to be a Christian, and the Catholic Church is enabling the enemy. Despite criticism by the United States State Department and human rights agencies, the Vatican is renewing a two-year-old deal with the Chinese Communist Party that offers the Chinese government a prominent role in appointing Catholic bishops in the country. Though the full details of this deal have not been fully disclosed, some have heralded the Pope-backed agreement as a win for Church diplomacy.
A senior executive for Chinese communications giant Huawei Technologies has been denied access to most of the documents her lawyers hoped to use to help prevent her extradition to the United States. Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of Huawei's founder and the company's chief financial officer, at Vancouver's airport in late 2018. It says Meng, 48, committed fraud by misleading the HSBC bank about the company's business dealings in Iran.
Hurricane Delta has made landfall in the US state of Louisiana, which is still recovering from the damage caused by a previous hurricane in August. This is the 10th named storm to make US landfall so far this year, breaking a record that has stood since 1916. Delta hit Creole, Louisiana as a Category 2 hurricane at 18:00 local time (00:00 BST) on Friday, with winds of 100 mph (155 km/h).
Japan's Maritime Self-defense Force conducted anti-submarine drills in the South China Sea on Oct. 9, deploying three vessels including a helicopter aircraft carrier and a submarine, according to the Japanese defence ministry. Nearly all of the energy-rich waters of the South China Sea are claimed by China, which has established military outposts on artificial islands in the area. The United States has accused China of militarising the South China Sea and trying to intimidate Asian neighbours who might want to exploit the area's extensive oil and gas reserves.
With coronavirus running through his body in competition with a heavy steroidal dose, President Trump is frustrated that a country where over 210,000 people have died from the virus seems disinterested in the “hoax” of Russiagate. Trump spent part of his week demanding the latest version of his Russia counter-narrative—that the intelligence officials teamed up with Democrats to invent Russian collusion in 2016—be used to prosecute his political enemies. “I say, 'Bill [Barr], we have plenty [of evidence], we don't need any more,” Trump told Maria Bartiromo on Thursday.
A fire spread up a high-rise apartment building by strong winds in a South Korean port city left scores of people with minor injuries, officials said Friday. Footage from the scene in Ulsan showed a huge ball of orange flame soaring up the 33-floor building and shooting through the roof as firefighting crews tried to put out the blaze from below. There were no immediate reports of deaths or serious injuries.
A Fox News Media representative told Business Insider that Hill was never paid to appear. Fox News has said it has "no intention of booking" a frequent guest after he tweeted a misogynistic attack on Kamala Harris during the vice-presidential debate, The Daily Beast reported. During Harris' debate with Vice President Mike Pence, Hill wrote: "Kamala Harris comes off as such an insufferable lying bitch.
The FBI says it has thwarted a plot to abduct and overthrow Michigan's Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Mrs Whitmer has become a target for coronavirus sceptics after enacting strict measures that were overturned by a judge last week. Officials say the kidnapping plot involved six men who planned to hold a "treason trial" for her.
Eric Trump really spun himself into a confusing web with this one. The first son and campaign surrogate to his father, President Donald Trump, attacked former Vice President Joe Biden in a tweet on Thursday that appeared to refute reality — and which quickly sparked bewilderment online. He spoke after the president said he would no longer participate in a debate against Mr Biden next week, citing the debate commission's announcement that it would change the event to be virtual instead of in-person following his Covid-19 diagnosis.
For the first time in 46 years, members of the public were permitted on Thursday to access the beach of Varosha in the breakaway Turkish Cypriot north of ethnically divided Cyprus. Hundreds filed through a gate manned by Turkish Cypriot police to walk on a freshly paved asphalt road leading to the beach that was the jewel of what was once Cyprus' premier tourist resort. For some, like one woman draped in the Turkish and Turkish Cypriot flags, it was a moment of joy to witness an “historic” moment.
A tweet from a UK-based academic calling an Indian comfort food "boring" has sparked an amusing food war on Twitter. "Idli are the most boring things in the world," historian Edward Anderson tweeted. The idli is a steamed rice cake that is usually eaten with a lentil-based vegetable stew called sambar.
