A Chinese researcher accused of concealing her ties to the Chinese military on a visa application she submitted so she could work in the U.S. was booked Friday into a Northern California jail and was expected to appear in federal court Monday. Sacramento County jail records show Juan Tang, 37, was being held on behalf of federal authorities after she was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service. The Justice Department on Thursday announced charges against Tang and three other scientists living in the U.S., saying they lied about their status as members of China's People's Liberation Army.
More than 40 countries accused North Korea on Friday of illicitly breaching a United Nations cap on refined petroleum imports and called for an immediate halt to deliveries until the end of the year, according to a complaint seen by Reuters. The 15-member U.N. Security Council imposed an annual cap of 500,000 barrels in December 2017 in a bid to cut off fuel for North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. But in a complaint to the U.N. Security Council North Korea sanctions committee, 43 countries - including the United States, Britain and France - said they estimated that in the first five months of this year Pyongyang had imported more than 1.6 million barrels of refined ...
Inspired by protesters in Portland, Oregon, a new group of mothers in the Chicago area plans to offer a human wall of protection for those protesting police brutality and broader racism. Moms attracted widespread media coverage last weekend when they linked arms at Black Lives Matters protests in Portland, and got sprayed with tear gas and pushed away by federal agents who said they were protecting the courthouse. Following that example, Wall of Moms Chicago attracted more than 5,000 members on Facebook in its first days of existence this week.
It was during his time as editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller that Carlson began to draw accusations of having sympathy for nationalist and white supremacist ideas. It would become a common theme in his career from here on out: Carlson would always deny harbouring these views himself, but would continually find himself in the company of people who did. Throughout the 2016 election and since, the Daily Caller has not only published the work of white nationalists, but some of its writers have routinely whitewashed the Alt-Right, while one editor there is an associate of key Alt-Right figures,” the report said.

Musk on Friday said only direct payments should be included in a new relief bill.
As debate continues over when and how to safely reopen schools in the United States, one pressing question remains unanswered: At what point should a school close due to a COVID-19 outbreak in a given community. In an interview with Surgeon General Jerome Adams Friday, "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan asked if parents should be looking at a specific positivity rate in their community. COVID19 surges nationwide as the country aims to "return to normal" -- including kids going back to school this fall.
Patricia McCloskey's handgun was inoperable when she brandished it to ward off demonstrators who had congregated on her front lawn, but a St. Louis prosecutor ordered crime lab technicians to reassemble the gun in working order and then attested that it was “readily capable of lethal use” in charging documents filed against McCloskey. McCloskey has stated that the handgun she used was inoperable, which under Missouri law would exonerate her from the charge of unlawful use of a weapon. However, assistant circuit attorney Chris Hinckley wrote that the gun was “readily capable of lethal use” when charging McCloskey on Monday, a St. Louis NBC affiliate reported.
A group of more than 100 Christian pastors, religion professors and other advocates is urging the Democratic National Committee to adopt a party platform that's friendlier to abortion opponents. In a letter organized by the anti-abortion group Democrats for Life and set to be sent Friday, the group of Christians calls on the Democratic Party to rescind its platform's support for ending restrictions on federal funding for abortion. Last year, Joe Biden, the Democrat's presumptive presidential nominee, shifted his position to back an end to restrictions on government funding for abortion.
President Donald Trump got just about as introspective as he's capable of getting during an interview with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy this week at the White House. “There are times when I love it,” Trump said with a smile. “Too much sometimes, right?” After getting his social-media guru Dan Scavino to confirm his current total number of followers, the president boasted about his “very big voice” in the face of “fake news,” adding, “It's been very important for me.”
Alabama prisons have used ”cruel and unusual punishment” on inmates by allowing correctional officers to perform routine beatings, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said following an investigation. “Our investigation found reasonable cause to believe that there is a pattern or practice of using excessive force against prisoners in Alabama's prisons for men,” Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband for the department's Civil Rights Division said. An investigation of 13 Alabama prisons found that 12 of them had correctional officers using excessive, and sometimes deadly, force on inmates that violated their Constitutional rights.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez, who is often a target of conservatives, said the words showed a "pattern" of bad behaviour by men.
Australia has joined the United States in stating that China's claims in the South China Sea do not comply with international law in a declaration likely to anger China and put more strain on their deteriorating relations. The United States this month rejected China's claims to offshore resources in most of the South China Sea, drawing criticism from China which said the U.S. position raised tension in the region. Australia, in a declaration filed at the United Nations in New York on Friday, said it too rejected China's maritime claims around contested islands in the South China Sea as being inconsistent with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Seattle Times executive editor Michele Matassa Flores pushed back on a judge's ruling that the paper and four other Seattle news organizations must give police unpublished photos and video footage of riots in the city. Police had sought reporters' footage of a May 30 riot that stemmed from a George Floyd protest, during which vandals smashed windows of and set fire to police vehicles — and stole various pieces of equipment, including two firearms that remain unaccounted for. The violence led Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan to impose a curfew, and Washington governor Jay Inslee activated National Guard troops in the event that the riots continued.
The statue of Robert E. Lee and busts of seven other Confederate soldiers were quietly removed from the Virginia Capitol building overnight as states and cities around the country continue to grapple with symbols of America's racist past. The state's Democratic House speaker, Eileen Filler-Corn, ordered the removals from the Old House Chamber in Richmond, which once served as the capital of the Confederacy. “Virginia has a story to tell that extends far beyond glorifying the Confederacy and its participants,” Filler-Corn said a statement to the Washington Post.
