    Apple has banned Fortnite from the App Store for violating store policies, and Epic is rallying players against the iPhone maker in part by telling them they could miss the game’s upcoming season if Apple doesn’t change its rules. “Because Apple has BLOCKED your ability to update, when Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 4 releases you will NOT be able to play the new Season on iOS,” Epic said in a blog post titled “#FreeFortnite.” Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is scheduled to begin on August 27th. If nothing changes between Apple and Epic by then, that means the game’s many iOS players will lose out on the chance to play Fortnite’s next major update in just a couple...

    A Justice Department investigation has found Yale University illegally discriminated against Asian American and white applicants, in violation of federal civil rights law, officials said.  The findings detailed in a letter to the college's attorneys on Thursday mark the latest action by the Trump administration aimed at rooting out discrimination in the college application process, following complaints from students at some Ivy League schools.  The two-year investigation concluded that Yale 'rejects scores of Asian American and white applicants each year based on their race, whom it otherwise would admit,' the Justice Department said.  The investigation stemmed from a 2016 complaint against Yale, Brown and Dartmouth. A two-year investigation by the Department of Justice found Yale University (pictured) discriminated against...

    Reasonable people can disagree whether the business model of Uber, Lyft and other transportation services is a model of flexible part-time work or cruelly exploits non-employee workers. Their drivers, often using their own vehicles, are paid by the ride, giving rise to the term “gig economy.” Uber, et al, contend that they give drivers opportunities to voluntarily supplement their incomes by working whenever it suits them. It’s not uncommon for someone to simultaneously drive for both Uber and Lyft. The model, however, is unsettling to unions and their political allies, who contend that it deprives gig workers of rights and benefits of being on the payroll, such as contributions for Social Security and Medicare benefits and overtime pay. As independent...

    A New Jersey college has dropped 'bullying' charges against a student after he 'taunted' peers by using a picture of Trump as his Zoom background and posted an 'inflammatory' Facebook post saying he would 'fight to the death for our country'. Stockton University backed off five of the six student code of conduct charges leveled against doctoral student Robert Dailyda this week but continued to pursue the charge of 'disruptive behavior' against him. Dailyda was originally charged with disruptive behavior, discrimination, harassment, hostile environment, harm, and bullying and cyberbullying and faced possible suspension from the college if found guilty. Stockton University sent a letter to the student Tuesday saying five of the charges had been dropped but that it is...
    After President Donald Trump railed against his 2020 rivals and mail-in voting, he and Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo careened into a wild, eight minute shared diatribe over the “treason” committed against him. As Trump claimed he’s pulling the economy out of the depression that the coronavirus pandemic brought about, Bartiromo started to gush “even in the face of all of this, you’ve gotten so much done.” The Fox host then listed off numerous elements of political opposition Trump faced in his first term, then she came up with the softball question: “What was most difficult and most surprising for you in this last three-and-a-half years?” From there, Trump went off against the “phony, fake impeachment” before bragging about...
    Several of the 2020 Democratic primary candidates favored the abolishment of the Electoral College. Or, as once-confident candidate Elizabeth Warren put it, “I plan to be the last American president to be elected by the Electoral College.” Furor over the Electoral College among the left arose from the 2000 and 2016 elections. Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, respectively, won the popular votes. But, like three earlier presidents, they lost the Electoral College voting — and with it the presidency. The Founding Fathers saw a purpose in the Electoral College. It ensured that small, rural states would retain importance in national elections. The Electoral College lessened the chance of voting fraud affecting the outcome of a national vote by compartmentalizing the...

    Karrin Anderson August 12, 2020 12:22PM (UTC) This article was originally published on The Conversation. Joe Biden's promise to name a woman running mate has prompted familiar debates about gender and power. Are these potential vice presidents supposed to be presidential lackeys or understudies to the leader of the free world? Should they actively seek the position, or be reluctant nominees bound by duty? : After Sen. Kamala Harris' name emerged as a short-list favorite, CNBC reported that some Biden allies and donors "initiated a campaign against Harris," arguing that she was "too ambitious" and would be "solely focused on eventually becoming president." Claiming that people who want to be president make bad vice presidents might seem ill-conceived if...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump is having one big success in what is clearly a campaign to distract from Covid-19's impact on his floundering reelection campaign. Somehow, he's managed to cobble together a coalition-of-the-willing -- nations prepared to follow him over the cliff and participate in a burgeoning anti-China alliance.Australia, India, Japan, Britain, France and Canada have all squared off against a China that is at the same time flexing its own muscles after apparently beating back the coronavirus that it unleashed on the world.

    Sputnik-V. With this name reminiscent of the first artificial satellite placed in space in the history of mankind, a feat of the Soviet space agency, Russia approved the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, a daughter of Putin has already applied the drug developed by the Gamaleya Institute in Moscow. With the media name of Sputnik-V, in addition to enthusiasm, this first vaccine has caused concern in the international scientific community that questions its safety and the rigor of the clinical trials to which it was subjected. “This morning a vaccine against the coronavirus was registered for the first time in the world,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday in a meeting with his cabinet broadcast on state television....

    (CNN)Before deciding on whether to hold the 80th annual motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, the local city council turned to its residents to get their take. "There was a significant amount of discussion that the council had with residents, businesses and state health officials as well as local health officials," Daniel Ainslie, the city manager, told CNN Sunday. The city, home to fewer than 7,000, sent a survey to all households asking if they wanted the rally to proceed on its scheduled date.

    The creator of “The Walking Dead” has won a legal battle to block a cannabis-themed comic strip titled “The Toking Dead.” AMC waged war with the creators of “Toking Dead” — about friends who open a marijuana dispensary, and when everyone mutates into zombies, weed saves humanity — from registering the name as a trademark. Like the zombies in both stories (except the stoned “Toking Dead” zombies seem to be having more fun), the dispute looked like it would never die. But “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman finally vanquished the pesky tokers by winning a ruling at the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, Law360 reported.

    Before Saturday’s game at Dodger Stadium, the San Francisco Giants sent news outlets a packet of notes filled with stats and information about the 2020 season to date. The daily packet focuses almost solely on what the Giants have accomplished this summer, but Saturday’s contained a tip of the cap to Dodger starter Clayton Kershaw. Under a header that read “Tough On Us,” the Giants said, “Clayton Kershaw’s numbers against the Giants in his career are arguably the best by any pitcher against a single opponent in the live-ball era…in that 100-year span, Kershaw’s 1.74 ERA versus SF is the lowest by any pitcher versus one team, with a minimum of 20 victories.” That’s not unwarranted hype.

    The NRA became a potent force in American politics by making a political identity out of gun ownership and stoking gun owners' fears that their political enemies will seize their weapons. They have sold a narrative in which solid, self-reliant gun owners are threatened by corrupt and self-serving elites. The suit filed Tuesday by one of those supposed enemies, New York Attorney General Letitia James, charges the group’s chief executive, Wayne LaPierre, and other executives with major financial misdeeds, including fraudulently using the nonprofit organization’s funds to pay for private family vacations to tropical islands, hunting safaris and more.  That sounds a lot like the lifestyle of the “Hollywood media elites” that LaPierre has railed against—something that could seriously damage...

    BOSTON (CBS) — What will reopening look like for Massachusetts schools this fall? Gov. Charlie Baker indicated at a Friday news conference that he doesn’t want all schools in the state to be starting fully remote. School districts are being asked to prepare for three potential scenarios: A full reopening, remote-only learning or a hybrid model. Baker said the vast majority of communities in Massachusetts have coronavirus transmission rates low enough to allow for in-person learning. “To say everybody should go remote. . . the facts don’t support it, the data doesn’t support it and the science doesn’t support it,” Baker said.

    New York Attorney General Letitia James’ move to sue the NRA has “political timing,” Fox News host Sean Hannity said on Thursday, calling out an overarching agenda of the "radical left" that makes the upcoming election a "tipping point." “It just adds to what is the broader, bigger choice in this election. In [the book] “Live Free or Die,” it’s basically, live free or you’re going to have radicals take over this government,” the host of "Hannity" told “Outnumbered Overtime.” Hannity said that there has never been in American history a “major prominent party candidate” that shifted this far to the “radical left.” “The left has talked about eliminating the Electoral College, they want to stack the courts, they always hated the Second...

Since his last State Department press briefing, Pompeo said, the world has witnessed more examples of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s efforts to coerce and control its citizens, and that other nations and the U.S. have put out “a number of statements”: We see it in Hong Kong, where authorities have delayed legislative elections, arrested pro-democracy activists, issued warrants for freedom-loving foreigners, including an American. We see the CCP’s continuing ambition to control Muslim minorities in Xinjiang. And I commend the Treasury Department for using its Global Magnitsky authorities against human-rights violators there just this past week. And we see, too, the CCP’s lawlessness...

When asked if he is willing to “admit” that he is trailing in the presidential race, Trump refused to do so as he noted that he has support in Texas and Florida. “I don’t think so,” Trump said. “I mean I went to Texas, I’ve never seen such enthusiasm. I went to Florida, never saw such enthusiasm. Got the support of law enforcement all over the state, and...
    New York Attorney General Letitia James on Thursday filed a lawsuit seeking to dissolve the National Rifle Association (NRA). The case included a litany of allegations that top NRA officials engaged in fraudulent conduct. Among the named defendants in the lawsuit is NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, who is accused of awarding contracts to close associates and family and granting lucrative no-show contracts to former employees in order to buy their silence and continued loyalty. The suit also accused former Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Wilson “Woody” Phillips, former Chief of Staff and the Executive Director of General Operations Joshua Powell, and Corporate Secretary and General Counsel John Frazer of failing to manage the NRA’s funds and...
    In an interview with Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera on Thursday, Donald Trump took aim at Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his purported lack of faith, The Independent reported. “I’m in favor of the Bible,” Trump said. “I’m in favor of Second Amendment. Biden is against all of those things. He’s against oil, he’s against the Bible — essentially against religion — but against the Bible, and he’s against the Second Amendment.” “That may be a little harsh, him being against the Bible,” Rivera responded. In the same interview, Trump said he does not believe he is trailing Biden in the polls, despite many that suggest otherwise. As reported by Raw Story, CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale noted that Biden has...

    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. This series examines the financial progress made by women in the U.S. since the Equal Credit Opportunity Act was passed in 1974. In this installment: the 2000s, when a Supreme Court ruling led to historic fair-pay legislation. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act The first bill that President Barack Obama signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009. The law bolstered the protection against pay discrimination for women that had been badly undermined by a Supreme Court ruling. Lilly Ledbetter was a manager at Goodyear Tire & Rubber GT, +3.97% who had experienced sexual harassment and pay discrimination. Ledbetter complained to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and she initially won her...
            by Robert Romano  It is former Vice President Joe Biden, and not President Donald Trump, who has a political problem due to ongoing riots in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd as public backlash against the political left has begun seeping into public attitudes concerning the race for president in 2020. On July 28, as attention was focused on attempts by radical leftist mobs led by Antifa to burn a federal courthouse in Portland, Oreg. to the ground, Biden issued a weak statement unbelievably blaming President Donald Trump and federal law enforcement for the riots. Biden said, “They brutally attack peaceful protesters… Of course, the U.S. government has the right and the duty to...
    Our founding fathers were of an era when slavery and colonization were a direct extension of the “t’was ever thus” of history. To fault them for their failures to live by our current standards (by which they fail miserably) is to miss the point. So too is praising them for their idealism and vision. Though many were Christians, they knew better than to bring that kind of blind-faith optimism to the crafting of our city on the hill. Their true genius was in expecting of humankind what humankind inevitably delivers, corruption, backsliding and backlashes, the opposite of the dream of woke enlightenment in which everybody finally sees the light, realizing the truth of love, kindness, generosity, justice and liberty for...

    Photo credit: Saul Loeb, Getty Images. The Trump campaign is requesting that the Commission on Presidential Debates hold one of the scheduled debates between President Donald Trump and Democratic opponent Joe Biden in early September. Axios obtained a letter from the Trump campaign — specifically Rudy Giuliani — requesting either a fourth debate taking place in early September or moving the final debate from October 22nd to the first week in September. The rationale, Giuliani argues, is that by the time of the first debate on September 29th, millions of Americans in many states “will already have started voting.” “For a nation already deprived of a traditional campaign schedule because of the COVID-19 global pandemic, it makes no sense to also...

    Donald Trump assured Tuesday that Texas won't turn blue in November because he claims Democrats are 'against religion,' will destroy the oil industry there and take away Texans' guns. 'They're against oil and gas. They're against guns, and I guess they're against God,' Trump told Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs during a phone-in interview Tuesday afternoon. 'They're against religion, they're against the bible, certainly.' 'If you're against oil, if you're against the guns and you're against the bible – and then you're supposed to win Texas, I don't think that's working out too well,' Trump continued, claiming Texas Governor Greg Abbott told him he has a 'tremendous lead.'

    With a president that has told over 20,000 lies, and massive disinformation campaigns being waged both domestically and from foreign entities attempting to interfere in U.S. politics, the role of fact-checkers has become critical in sorting out what to believe. But perhaps you’ve had the experience of providing information from fact-checkers to Trump supporters only to get a response from them that is dismissive because it comes from so-called “biased media.” That pretty much encapsulates why the partisan divide in America is almost impossible to bridge. Right-wing reporter Sheryl Attkisson has written a piece that is designed to give Trump supporters permission to dismiss fact checks. It is titled, “The Troubling Fact Is That Media Fact-Checkers Tend to Lean Left.” She claims...

He’s also using his own destruction of the Postal Service as a reason for why voting by mail couldn’t work. “In an illegal late night coup, Nevada’s clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state,” Trump tweeted. “Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation.

The governor is expected to sign it, meaning Nevada will join several other states that have taken that option as a way to combat the coronavirus epidemic.  Trump and Republicans have warned that such moves will lead to voter fraud despite repeated studies that show that is not the case.
