    Washington (CNN)Watching television in his private dining room earlier this month, President Donald Trump was surprised at the latest federal entity being skewered in a segment on cable news: his own United States Postal Service.Of all the government agencies, Trump mused to aides, according to a person familiar with the encounter, how had the Post Office become so controversial?It's a question with a long answer that rests partly on Trump's own actions. Once an aspect of daily life so reliable it went mostly unnoticed, the Postal Service now finds itself at the center of a political scandal so grave that, according to election officials and voting experts, the integrity of the election is at stake.This week, Trump privately shrugged off reports that veterans and older Americans are experiencing delays in receiving their prescription medications, according to another person familiar with the conversations. And he told aides he believed the agency's recent problems were caused by President Barack Obama, according to that person.Analysis: Pressure mounts on Trump to match Bidens convention appearanceYet many inside the agency and at the White House...

    This week, the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico — an iconic facility made famous by movies like Contact and Goldeneye — had to halt observations of the Universe after a structural cable failed, punching a hole in the facility’s giant reflector dish. Operators of the observatory say the overall facility is mostly fine, but they’re working to figure out exactly what went wrong. “The majority of that primary reflector is in good shape.” “The majority of that primary reflector is in good shape, but our focus is really making sure that the platform has the structural stability needed to operate in the near future,” Francisco Cordova, the director of the observatory at the University of Central Florida, said during a press call. Damage as seen from underneath the disk.Image: UCF Early Monday morning, one of the cables that helps to keep a large metal platform in place over the observatory detached.

    Mainstream media outlets have failed the public by declining to spotlight the devastation left behind by rioters in cities across America, independent journalist Michael Tracey said Tuesday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." In a self-published article titled "Two months since the riots and still no 'National Conversation,'" Tracey traveled to cities affected by violent protests and documented his findings using photographs and conversations with store owners and residents. US PROTESTS: MORE LAWLESSNESS IN CITIES ACROSS NATION "I wanted to see for myself how communities were dealing with the aftermath, what the attitudes toward what transpired were," Tracey told host Tucker Carlson. "I just wasn't really getting that toward the mainstream organs that you would expect to be covering a story of such reported significance. "If you go to The New York Times, you go to The Washington Post or any of these other outlets, it's not as though there is an easily accessible tally anywhere where you can find out what the precise quantification is of the amount of destruction that's being wrought in these purportedly historic events," he added. Video"And you really have to ask yourself, why is that? Why has journalistic resources not been deployed to [evaluate] the scope of what occurred? It's pretty simple to pose and yet the answer seems...

    A Denver police officer has been fired after 'an extraordinary series of bad decisions' following a number of lies surrounding a high speed car chase. Officer Nicholas Mauro is said to have covered up the unauthorized November 2019 incident by lying about it in a report.  He not only failed to turn on his bodycam but also to report when the car he had chased crashed into a homeowner's garage, officials say.  Mauro then tired to hide the damage to his own patrol car by using white out.  A letter ending his employment said he had so 'significantly violated the public trust that the only appropriate penalty for this rule violation is termination'.  Officer Nicholas Mauro lied about the November 2019 incident in his report (stock image) The letter adds: 'Officer Mauro said he started to panic and that he was scared because he knew the repercussions of what had happened.'  Officers Aldo Salayandia has also been handed a 22-day unpaid suspension after taking part in the chase, The Denver Post reports.  Mauro had reached speeds of 99mph chasing an...
    The powerful earthquake that rocked southern Mexico on Tuesday is now blamed for at least six deaths, including a worker at the country's largest oil refinery, according to officials.

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — A powerful earthquake centered near the southern Mexico resort of Huatulco on Tuesday killed at least five people, swayed buildings in Mexico City and sent thousands fleeing into the streets. Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said one person was killed in a building collapse in Huatulco, Oaxaca. Otherwise he said reports were of minor damage from the magnitude 7.4 quake, including broken windows and collapsed walls. Oaxaca Gov. Alejandro Murat said a second person was killed in an apparent house collapse in the mountain village of San Juan Ozolotepec and a third died in circumstances he did not explain. Federal civil defense authorities reported two more deaths: a worker at the state-run oil company, Pemex, fell to his death from a refinery structure, and a man died in the Oaxaca village of San Agustin Amatengo when a wall fell on him. Pemex also said the quake caused a fire at its refinery in the Pacific coast city of Salina Cruz, relatively near the epicenter. It said one worker was injured and the flames were quickly...
    TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – As summer kicks into full gear, so does extreme weather as Texas prepares to face what could be a recording breaking season. A study by ValuePenguin found the Lone Star state to be the most at-risk in the U.S. for natural disasters, due in large part to its lengthy coastline. Over the past five years Texas has sustained an average of $14 billion a year in property damage. The most expensive season in recent memory came in 2017 when Texas was hit with $63.4 billion in damages. In the last five years homeowners in Texas have had to shell out over $1,400 in property damages each on average. The state with the second-highest average property damage per household is next door neighbor Louisiana coming in at just over $1,000. The United States is currently on pace to set a new record for federally declared disasters in 2020 so homeowners should expect property damage totals to go even higher than previous years. By the end of April, the U.S. had already experienced its second most federally declared disasters in...
    George Floyd was not the first unarmed Black person to die at the hands, so to speak, of a police officer. We already know he won’t be the last (say his name: Jamel Floyd). The death of George Floyd, along with similarly unjust killings that recently took the lives of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, sparked protests that rightly focused the attention of our country and the world on systemic racism, white supremacy, and police violence in America. White supremacy and racial oppression—totally separate from the response of any elected official or police force to those engaged in peaceful protest—stand as stains on America’s record in the eyes of the world. However, the president of the United States could have responded this past week in ways that helped us move closer to justice, and in ways that strengthened our democracy. He did the opposite. The world is taking note. Germany’s Der Spiegel is that country’s most influential weekly news publication. It has the highest circulation numbers of any news weekly in Europe. Please take a look at its...
    The Minneapolis mayor is asking for federal help cleaning up and rebuilding his city after rioters caused at least $55 million worth of damage through looting, burning, and defacing public and private property. That cost estimate is likely to increase in the coming days as government officials continue to tally the damage done in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Mayor Jacob Frey said according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and the state’s congressional delegation are also pushing the Trump administration and Congress for funding. On Tuesday, city officials released an initial estimate of $55 million in damage done to at least 220 buildings. The mayor said that the number was likely a lowball estimate and that the total cost of the riots across Minneapolis and the state capital of St. Paul is likely to be “tens, if not hundreds of millions” of dollars. “We will do everything we can as we shift to recovery mode,” Frey said, according to the Star Tribune. “We’re recovering from crises sandwiched on top of each other, from COVID-19 to...
