President Trump on Tuesday accused Joe Biden of wanting to make it legal to kill newborn babies, a gross distortion of the Democratic nominee's vow to make the principles of Roe v. Wade the “law of the land.” “Biden and Democrats just clarified the fact that they are fully in favor of (very) LATE TERM ABORTION, right up until the time of birth, and beyond — which would be execution,” Trump tweeted.
The Russian military on Wednesday reported a successful test launch of the new Zircon hypersonic cruise missile, giving Russian President Vladimir Putin something to smile about on his 68th birthday. Speaking to Putin via a video call, Russian General Staff chief Valery Gerasimov said the test launch was carried out Tuesday from the Admiral Groshkov frigate located in the White Sea, north of Russia. The missile successfully hit a target in the Barents Sea, Gerasimov said.
Claim: Chinese soldiers being sent to the border are crying Verdict: Misleading video taken out of context This video shared by Twitter users was picked up in September by some Taiwanese media outlets, and then went viral in India, with users there mocking the Chinese soldiers for crying because - it's claimed - they were being sent to the border. It's been viewed more than 300,000 times, and even picked up by top media outlets in India like the Zee News TV channel. The recruits are on a minibus, singing a popular Mandarin-language military song about being homesick.
According to experts, a shift in voter support in a Latino community such as Nicaraguans, who are 3.4% of the state's eligible Latino electorate as per the 2018 American Community Survey, could be meaningful to the outcome in the presidential election. Fernand Amandi, president of Bendixen & Amandi, a Miami-based political research and advisory company specializing in the Hispanic vote and a Democratic strategist, estimates there are 60,000 to 70,000 registered Nicaraguan voters in Miami. Both the Biden and Trump campaigns are trying to woo them and other non-Cuban Hispanic groups, in what will most likely be yet another contested presidential election in Florida.
The chairman of an Arkansas county Republican committee died from complications associated with COVID-19 on Tuesday—less than one month after his organization hosted a maskless gathering with other elected leaders. Steven Farmer, who served as the chairman of the Craighead County Republican Committee, died on Tuesday after a weeks-long battle with the coronavirus that resulted in a stay at the ICU and a ventilator, his daughter and the organization announced. The news comes just three weeks after his committee hosted an event with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), who contracted COVID-19 in July, for Reagan Day.
Vice President Mike Pence is known to rely on his wife Karen for support - the pair, married for 34 years, are inseparable. Less, however, is known about their three children - all young adults, beginning to forge their paths independently, but who were all present on August 26 for Pence's address to the Republican National Convention. “This has always been a family affair for us, from the very first campaign headed out to county fairs," Pence said several years ago.
As a young law student, Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett lived in a house owned by co-founders of People of Praise, a religious community that teaches that men are divinely ordained as the “heads” of both family and faith. Barrett has not publicly discussed her role with the secretive organization founded in South Bend, Indiana, which some former members have alleged subjugates women. Barrett also did not list the group as among her affiliations on Senate judicial questionnaires filed last month or in 2017, when she was confirmed to her current seat as a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.

In that time I came to appreciate my own country more because of how greatly it differed from the one I was in. But now I wonder whether that is still true of the United States today. In Argentina in the mid-1970s, the country was struggling with right-wing and left-wing terrorists.
The federal judge targeted by an anti-feminist lawyer has spoken of the moment she watched her son die in the doorway of her family home. As her husband keeled over with a gunshot wound, US District Judge Esther Salas got to the floor next to her 20-year-old son, Daniel Anderl, when she lifted his shirt and saw the bullet hole. Ms Salas and her husband Mark Anderl, who is expected to make a full recovery, said they have forgiven the man who killed their only child.
Authorities on Tuesday continued their frantic search for a Florida mother who disappeared over a week ago after withdrawing $20 from an ATM. Stephanie Hollingsworth, 50, left her home around noon on Sept. 25 and drove to a local Bank of America to withdraw $20, the Belle Isle Police Department said. The mother of three then stopped by a Walmart around 2 p.m., where she was caught on store cameras walking through an aisle near the entrance.
A high-ranking government whistleblower who alleges the Trump administration fumbled its coronavirus response resigned Tuesday, saying he has been forced out. Lawyers for Dr. Rick Bright said he was sidelined at the National Institutes of Health, where he had been transferred this spring after being ousted as head of a biodefense agency. Attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks said NIH superiors ignored a national coronavirus testing strategy that Bright developed because he had become politically toxic within the Trump administration.
None of the actions taken by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management under a director deemed illegitimate by a federal court judge last month should be invalidated, the Trump administration argued in court papers filed on Monday. Attorneys for the agency, an arm of the Department of Interior that oversees nearly 250 million acres of public lands, said a review showed "no relevant acts taken" by William Perry Pendley during the more than 400 days he lead BLM. Late last month, U.S. District Judge Brian Morris in Montana ruled that Pendley had served unlawfully as BLM director because he was not confirmed by the Senate as required by law.
MSNBC's Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski has questioned if President Donald Trump would face “manslaughter” charges for potentially infecting the Secret Service and members of the White House with Covid-19. The question was posed on Tuesday as Ms Brzezinksi and guests on Morning Joe discussed the president's dramatic journey back to the White House after he was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday. “Maybe the president is immune from everything, because he said, 'Am I immune now?'” she said.
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed concern Tuesday over Turkey's decision to open to the public a beach in Cyprus that has been closed since war divided the island 46 years ago. Guterres' spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said in a statement that the U.N. chief urged all sides to enter into talks to resolve differences and repeated his readiness to arrange such a meeting. European Union Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell echoed Guterres, saying the 27-member bloc is “deeply concerned” about the development that “will cause greater tensions and may complicate efforts” to restart negotiations.
Thursday was a sad day for a few reasons, but mainly because it was the day that Ford announced its intent to end production of the best cars it currently makes, the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R. Sadder still is the fact that this likely marks the end of an era — one where Ford gave a mindless dedication to the GT350's particular breed of loud, ridiculous, manual-transmission V8 sports cars. Chicken soup for the enthusiast soul, all dried up and flaking from the bowl. First reported by Car and Driver last week, Ford confirmed the news of the GT350's death to Business Insider in an email.
India on Tuesday said it was approving incentives under a federal plan to boost domestic smartphone production to 16 companies, including top Apple suppliers Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron. India's smartphone industry has become a showpiece for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Make In India" drive. The $6.65 billion incentive scheme is part of the government's aim to make the country into an export and manufacturing hub.
With her vacant stare and vapid, press release-y talking points, Ivanka Trump does not come off as someone who has a good sense of humor. Neither is Ivanka's first inclination to turn her father's diagnosis into an Instagram aesthetic, superimposing footage of Trump's return from Walter Reed Medical Center over a twinkling background. “You are a warrior and will beat this,” Ivanka wrote on Friday evening after her father posted a video announcing he would be admitted to the hospital.
