1. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that Russia has developed the first approved vaccine against COVID-19, according to reports by local news agencies. Putin said his daughter was among the people who had been vaccinated with it. "As far as I know, a vaccine against a new coronavirus infection has been registered this morning, for the first time in the world," Putin said at a government meeting, according to a RIA Novosti report. Medical experts expressed concerns that the Kremlin aggressively and dangerously rushed the vaccine approval process, putting global prestige over public health. The World Health Organization reported in July that there were 26 vaccine candidates undergoing clinical evaluation, including one in Russia

Difficult as it is to imagine now, there was a time when the most important news coming out of China had nothing to do with a virus. A year ago the streets of Hong Kong were full of pink and blue umbrellas and American flags, as the people of the autonomous territory protested an allegedly insignificant extradition bill. At the time it was insisted by some that too much was being made of nothing, that the proposed law would, at most, give Beijing formal permission to do what had long been in its power anyway. The protesters knew better. If their inchoate feelings of dread had not already been vindicated, they certainly were on Monday when Jimmy Lai, the Hong Kong businessman and publisher, was along with two of his sons and four executives

Across much of the country, the United States Postal Service is grinding to a halt. In cities like , , , and , residents report that they have not gotten mail for weeks. People are not getting checks, bills, medicines, or other vital necessities, and it only seems to be getting worse. Now, with record numbers of Americans set to vote by mail this November, the Post Office is falling apart because Donald Trump thinks he can steal the election by breaking it. There is no other reason. To be sure, the USPS has had its struggles for some time. As I've , in 2006 Congress clapped the agency with an absurd requirement that it had to pre-fund its retiree health benefits 75 years out — meaning it had to set health care money aside for future employe.

President Trump oddly but consistently says the in 1917, but the White House clarified Monday night that when he claimed the Spanish Flu pandemic probably ended World War II, which started in 1939 and ended in 1945. "The closest thing is in 1917, they say, the great pandemic," Trump told reporters Monday evening, talking about the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Trump administration is contemplating a measure that would temporarily block U.S. citizens and permanent residents from coming back to the United States if it is believed they have COVID-19, a senior U.S. official. The official said there is a draft regulation that has been written which would give the government the authority to prevent entry by citizens and permanent residents if border officials "reasonably" suspect they could have or were exposed to the coronavirus.

A group of prominent Black male leaders, including several athletes and celebrities, signed a Monday open letter calling on former Vice President Joe Biden to select a Black woman as his running mate. The list includes names like Sean "Diddy Combs," Chris Paul, Kam Chancellor, Van Jones, Nick Cannon, and Bakari Sellers. The letter is quite clear in its intent, stating that choosing one of the several Black women the Biden campaign is considering as vice president is no longer something that "should" happen, but an imperative. Otherwise, the statement warns Biden, "you will lose the election" to President Trump in November. The signees said they "don't want to vote for the lesser of two evils" or the "devil we know versus the devil we don't.

It is often the case that those who are the least entitled to complain about something do so the loudest. So it is with conservatives and so-called "cancel culture" — firing or de-platforming individuals because of their views. Hardly a day goes by when some conservative somewhere doesn't warn Americans that the lefty "" or that a "" reminiscent of "Stalin" is underway from which "no one is safe.". But those conservatives need to take a deep breath and mind their own house. When it comes to the politically correct left, liberals are themselves rising to defend old-fashioned tolerance, showing that a free marketplace of ideas when left to its own devices can regulate itself. To be sure, it is an open question, as Ross Douthat, The New York Ti.

It appears college football players and conference commissioners are increasingly growing apart in their desire to play games this fall season. Several players from all so-called Power 5 conferences — the ACC, SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, and PAC-12 — up for a video call Sunday to create a statement expressing their desire to get on the field, albeit with universal health and safety protocols in place, as well as the ability to opt-out and the guarantee of an extra year of eligibility regardless of whether they play.

Everything is a show with Donald Trump. He was really a — he just on . Now, as president, a similar pattern has emerged: Trump wants to perform the role of autocrat in front of TV cameras, but cannot or will not act effectively to protect the country from the economic and health challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. He's a Potemkin strongman. The latest example of this phenomenon came over the weekend. With the House and Senate hamstrung on a pandemic relief bill, President Trump he would act unilaterally — signing executive orders to extend unemployment benefits, continue a moratorium on evictions, defer payroll taxes, and pause student loan payments. "I'm taking executive action," . "We've had it. And we're going to save America.

1. Amazon is negotiating with mall-owner Simon Property Group to transform empty department-store spaces into Amazon fulfillment centers, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday. The vacant stores include Sears and J.C. Penney locations that have been closed as malls struggle but online shopping surges during the coronavirus crisis. A deal would show that Simon, the nation's biggest mall operator, is willing to give up spaces it needs to attract mall traffic to secure a steady tenant. It wasn't immediately clear how many fulfillment centers Amazon would add, but Simon malls have 63 Penney and 11 Sears stores, according to a May public filing. J.C. Penney, which filed for bankruptcy protection in May, is closing 154 stores this summer. Lo.

1. The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States surpassed 5 million on Sunday, with about 163,000 deaths. The number of daily new infections appears to have leveled off, with the average over the last week hovering around 54,000, still below the peak seven-day average of 67,902 recorded on July 19. The latest milestone came as states continue to take different prevention approaches in the absence of a clear national policy. After infections and deaths fell sharply in early epicenter New York, there were sharp increases in the South and West, especially in states that lifted lockdowns early so businesses could start reopening. Now cases are spiking in other parts of the Midwest and West, with infections rising in Idaho, Ill.

To be a sports fan has always entailed a certain level of desperation. There are the obvious cases — lovers of one hapless franchise or another who want nothing more than to see their team win a championship before they die. After the Chicago Cubs broke their 108-year World Series drought in 2016, there were endless stories about aged Cubs fans who had either long enough to see Kris Bryant's clinching throw to first — or, sadly, . Then there's the more commonplace desperation — the raw need that drives many of us to devote huge chunks of our lives to watching strangers play games far better than we ever could. Professional athletes' excellence promises to transport us from the banality of our lives; what's amazing is that the promise is so

For obvious reasons, the presidential race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden is sucking up most of the attention span of Democratic voters. The man in the White House is frankly tearing the country to pieces, and he must be turfed out of office. However, there are good reasons for the Democrats to focus most on downballot races — particularly the control of state legislatures. A "" report from Aaron Kleinman at the Future Now Fund — a deep dive into the state of both national and local politics of the moment — shows how neglected state politics is both considerably easier to influence and also controls much of the foundation of national politics. Democrats have clawed back some of the appalling state-level losses that happened during the O.

One of the coronavirus pandemic-related executive orders signed by President Trump addressed evictions, but critics say it's a weak move that doesn't actually extend a moratorium. Instead, the order merely directs the the Treasury Department and the Department of Housing and Urban Development to consider taking action, Josh Blackman writes for Reason. In short, the order dictates the two departments to look into identifying federal funds that could potentially provide assistance to renters and homeowners who can't meet their monthly rental and mortgage payments because of the pandemic. There are no guarantees. The “eviction moratorium” is anything but. Asks federal agencies to look at the issue. Deeply misleading to raise the hopes of peopl.

1. President Trump on Saturday announced multiple executive actions aiming to extend economic aid to Americans while Congress remains in a stalemate over the next coronavirus relief package. The effectiveness and legality of the measures were unclear, however, with the orders seemingly exceeding Constitutional limits on executive power. The president said during a press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, that, via executive order, he will unilaterally continue expanded unemployment benefits at $400/week rather than the previous $600/week. He also signed orders intended to pause student loan payments and extend the moratorium on evictions. Additionally, Trump said the action authorizes the Treasury Department to defer pay.
