QAnon is a growing, yet baseless, conspiracy theory that falsely alleges the existence of a satanic "deep state" apparatus that supports a child sex trafficking ring. Followers have also spread misinformation about COVID-19 and a variety of other topics.

The Times goes on to report that advisers to Trump acknowledge that his positive diagnosis will "remind voters of how dismissive" he has been about the coronavirus.
Louisville police officers carried out a no-knock raid at the home of Breonna Taylor despite the fact that they were repeatedly told there were no packages, “suspicious or otherwise,” delivered to the residence that could be tied to their drug investigation, according to a new report. The 26-year-old EMT was fatally shot March 13 after three Louisville Metropolitan Police officers burst into her apartment to execute a search warrant linked to a narcotics probe into her ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover. Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and detectives Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison returned fire after Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired a “warning” shot.

Civil rights and voter advocacy groups have filed a federal lawsuit seeking to block an order by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott that dramatically reduced the number of drop-off locations for mail ballots. The lawsuit filed late Thursday could be the first of many legal challenges against Abbott's order that assigns just one drop-off location in each of Texas' 254 counties and allows poll watchers to observe ballot deliveries. The order, which took effect Friday, shutters dozens of sites statewide, including in Texas' largest cities and Democratic strongholds.
Pompeo, accompanied by U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican, Callista Gingrich, met Parolin and the Vatican's Foreign Minister, Archbishop Paul Gallagher. The Vatican's two top diplomatic officials have accused him of trying to drag the Catholic Church into the U.S. presidential election by denouncing its relations with China. The remarks came after Pompeo accused the Church in an article and a series of tweets this month of putting its "moral authority" at risk by renewing an agreement with China over the appointment of bishops.
A “lethargic” Donald Trump was captured returning to the White House on Thursday in the last pictures taken of the president hours before he announced he had tested positive for coronavirus. The photographs show Mr Trump walking away from Marine One as he returned from New Jersey on the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday, only hours before he announced he had tested positive for the coronavirus on Twitter. In the photos the president looks downcast, mostly looking at the floor in between offering a half hearted wave and thumbs up to onlookers.

Should Mr Trump be unable to continue as the Republican nominee, New York University law professor Richard Piles told the Washington Post in May the Republican national committee would assume control. This puts the ball in the hands of the 'national political parties', which for this purpose means the legal entities known as the Democratic and Republican national committees,” said the professor. In this situation, an emergency Republican convention would be held where members from each state or territory vote on the new nominee - casting the same number of votes as they are entitled to at an ordinary convention.
"The Boys" star Aya Cash spoke to Insider about her "beautiful" Stormfront suit, which also made it difficult to go to the bathroom. The actress said that the wardrobe department didn't realize the issue until about halfway through production, so they "cut the suit in half for me so I was able to pee with much more ease." "The Boys" star Aya Cash's Stormfront suit might look sleek, but it's far from comfortable.
On an evening a year ago, a woman emerged from a dimly lit street in the city of Amara, her face hidden in a black abaya, and greeted Jasb. Ever since, Jasb's father has been on a search for justice that has run repeatedly against one major obstacle: the increasing helplessness of Iraq's government in the face of powerful, Iranian-backed Shiite militias. Jasb was abducted a week into historic protests which erupted across Iraq and saw tens of thousands of youth rallying against corruption and the ruling class.

Joe Biden is taking down his negative TV ads and said Friday he is praying for the president and first lady after Donald and Melania Trump tested positive for Covid-19 — a stunning development that has upended an already tumultuous campaign. Democrats know they need to walk a fine line, but say Biden should press ahead full throttle with his campaign and prosecution of the case that Trump botched the coronavirus crisis, even as he expresses personal sympathy for the president. "Suspending the campaign would be a disservice to the country and there is no reason to do it," said Ben LaBolt, a former aide to former president Barack Obama.
