    The Trump campaign launched a new ad Monday that tries to push the narrative that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is suffering from cognitive decline.  The 78-second spot jumps between footage of Biden from 2015 and 2016 to the 77-year-old presumptive Democratic nominee of 2020.  'What happened to Joe Biden?' bookends the beginning and ending of the ad.   The Trump campaign launched a new ad Monday that asks, 'What happened to Joe Biden?' in a further attempt to suggest the presumptive Democratic nominee is suffering from cognitive decline  The ad, which is among the spots that will run on YouTube's masthead during the Democratic National Convention, shows footage of Biden from the 'past' and then of him mumbling in the present Clips from the present day are tinted to look darker and more sinister as the Trump campaign picked out some of Joe Biden's worst verbal stumbles    The Trump ad features Biden in 2015 and 2016, like this clip that shows him wearing his trademark aviators and looking rested and tan  The Trump campaign has taken...
    CHICAGO — As protests over police brutality and systemic racism rippled across the country this summer, long-time Chicago education activists saw their chance to win a battle they’d been waging for years: kicking police out of school buildings. Mayor Lori Lightfoot and district leadership, refusing to remove police wholesale, punted the decision to each school’s governing council. Now, after weeks of often heated debate and a messy process, the vast majority of the 70-plus schools with police officers voted to keep them — including the majority of schools where the student body is majority Black. The factors that led to the outcome are multifaceted and complex: Students armed with data about racial disparities in discipline ran headlong into parents and administrators who were grateful for the presence of police officers. While the role of police in schools was substantially narrowed last fall to take school discipline out of the picture, only allowing officers to intervene in cases of possible criminal activity, many felt uncomfortable voting to remove adults from already understaffed buildings. And in some cases, votes moved forward without quorums of...
    Kamala Harris isn't the far-left Democrat that Trump campaign supporters have deemed her to be, according to Fox News anchor Chris Wallace. Wallace said on Wednesday that he believes Harris was a solid choice to be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's running mate. He said that she is a moderate Democrat, despite what many Republicans are saying about her nomination. "She is not far to the left, despite what Republicans are going to try to say," Wallace told America's Newsroom. "There is a certain circuitous route to her position on issues. She was for 'Medicare for all' before she was against it, but you know, I think she's a reasonably safe choice. She was the obvious front-runner. She was the obvious choice. She adds some excitement to the ticket." Wallace's review of Harris's political beliefs differed from other Fox News personalities. Sean Hannity said that Harris has a "radical extremist record" and that she and Biden would be the country's "most extreme, radical, far-left, out of the mainstream ticket" in history. Tucker Carlson also questioned Harris's label as a...

    Despite President Donald Trump’s insistence to the contrary, Fox’s Chris Wallace believes that the incumbent would have strongly preferred someone other than Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate. Appearing on America’s Newsroom Wednesday. Wallace called Harris a “safe” pick and a moderate — even if the GOP attempts to paint her as an extremist. “She is not far to the left, despite what Republicans are going to try to say,” Wallace said. Fox anchor Sandra Smith asked Wallace how Democrats might “struggle” to defend Harris’ changing positions on issues such as issues such as healthcare (she initially supported Medicare for All before opposed it). Wallace acknowledged the VP nominee’s evolving policy stances, but argued that Harris is still far preferable to some of the others who were under consideration to fill out the ticket. “Let’s think of who else Joe Biden could have picked, Sandra,” Wallace said. “He could have picked Susan Rice … Immediately, the Trump campaign would have been all over her. She was the person that covered for the Obama...
    I noticed something odd the other day driving through my neighborhood in the Virginia hills not far from Washington, D.C. — There wasn’t a Trump sign in sight. Not one. Four years ago, they were all over, everywhere. This time around, zero. For the record, voters in my county went for President Trump over Hillary Clinton 59.1% to 34.7% in 2016. Which brings up an interesting notion: Are there secret Trump supporters out there, people who back the president but just don’t want to put up a yard sign or talk politics at the neighborhood barbecue? We all know most of the polls are really bad for Trump. In the latest average from Real Clear Politics, which keeps a running tally of all national polls, Joe Biden leads Trump by 7.2 percentage points. And the two most recent polls in the list have the former vice president up by double digits, one by 10 points, the other by 13. The state-by-state polls are just as grim. Here are six top swing states: ⦁ Arizona — Biden +3.7; ⦁ Florida —...
    Football : The “Final 8” of the Champions League will begin on Wednesday evening and the club which will lift the cup with big ears will offer itself a hell of a lot of money. After seeing CAS cancel their two-season suspension from both European Cups, Manchester city could strike very hard, sportingly as financially speaking, during the “Final 8” of the Champions League, scheduled from Wednesday in Lisbon. The formation of Pep Guardiola has just eliminated the real Madrid and favorite start in the quarter-finals againstOL, Friday, before an expected dream semi-final against Bayern or Barça. In the event of the very first continental coronation, on Sunday 23 August at the Estadio da Luz, Manchester City would offer themselves the biggest gain in the history of the C1. According to estimates by The Times, the fallen English champion will indeed touch a jackpot of 131 million euros thanks to TV rights and various bonuses. This “record” is currently held by FC Barcelona, ​​which received a check for € 117 million last year despite its elimination in the...
    The mayor of a small town in South Dakota says he is crossing his fingers that people behave responsibly, as 250,000 descend on his town of 7,000 for an annual motorbike rally. Mark Carstensen, mayor of Sturgis, South Dakota, said he was determined to encourage 'personal responsibility.' He said his team had set up sanitation stations and given out masks - although face coverings were not required. 'We cannot stop people from coming,' he told CNN on Thursday, ahead of the 80-year annual event.  Health officials are still warning against even small gatherings, and states with relatively low spread - such as South Dakota - are ordering visitors from hot spots to self-quarantine.  No restrictions are in place for the start of the 10-day jamboree, however.  Sturgis, South Dakota, is set to welcome 250,000 people this weekend for a motorbike rally Motorbike riders are pictured flocking to Sturgis, South Dakota, on Saturday for a rally The annual event, now in its 80th year, draws 250,000 people to the town of Sturgis The motorcyclist event is estimated to...
    Local authorities are investigating a massive pool party that took place at a New Jersey mansion, where video from the large gathering showed that many partygoers weren't adequately practicing social distancing.  Footage of the Saturday party, hosted at the mansion in Alpine, Bergen County, circulated on social media after they were shared by both the party promoter and party guests.  Folks wanting to go to the party paid to ride shuttle buses to the residence, where they stood in long lines to wait to get inside, NBC New York reports.  Footage of the Saturday party, hosted at the mansion in Alpine, Bergen County, was shared by promoters and partygoers
    During the first months of the pandemic, Australia appeared to be well on its way to containing covid-19. However, since June, new outbreaks in Melbourne, the second largest city in the country, began to sound alarms. Therefore, the capital of the state of Victoria (southeast) decided in early July to resume the restriction measures at least until mid-August. The people of Melbourne, since that decision was made, can only leave their homes for essential purposes and the use of masks is mandatory. Until this week, Melbourne had reported more than 10,500 cases and 113 deaths, and hundreds of cases are reported every day in the city of five million inhabitants. Furthermore, the figures are higher than the forecasts made by Australian health officials. What happened? There is no complete answer yet, but this is what is known so far. How is the situation in Australia? During July, more than 9,000 cases were confirmed in the state where Melbourne is located, about half of the total that Australia has since the pandemic began. Australian authorities point out that there were people...
    Real Madrid The Whites have already traded Achraf, Javi Sánchez and De Frutos Real Madrid thinks about the Champions in sports and in the output operation in the economic. When the Whites start the preseason 2020-2021, Zidane could find himself with an unacceptable overbooking for normal workouts. For this reason, the club has started to work soon on departures and has already sold to Achraf Hakimi to Inter (40 million), Javi Sánchez to Valladolid (3 million) and this Wednesday to Jorge de Frutos, to Levante, for which it raises 5 million euros, with no repurchase option but remaining 50% of a future transfer. Even so, there are still many to look for a way out, especially on loan. The real Madrid has yet to receive 10 players that has been scattered throughout the Spanish and international territory. Will it have one? Among the most experienced names, despite not being able to say that they are veterans, are those of Martin Odegaard and Dani Ceballos. The first one could extend its transfer with the Royal one...
    Craig Kimbrel’s ninth inning against the Reds on Monday transpired as follows: Walk, wild pitch, ground out, walk, walk, hit by pitch, walk. Kimbrel exited with the bases loaded and one out, the Cubs clinging to an 8-7 lead. Even though right-hander Jeremy Jeffress bailed him out by retiring the next two batters to end the contest, much of the postgame focus centered on his inability to locate pitches. Kimbrel was supposed to be a reliable closer for Chicago this year despite his rocky second half in 2019. Now it seems he might be cooked for good, unable to get anywhere close to his former dominance. After watching the previously excellent relief duo of Carl Edwards Jr. and Pedro Strop implode last season, the Cubs are staring down another potentially brutal year from their bullpen. There could be serious repercussions for Chicago if the club can’t solve the problem soon — the NL Central is set up to be a four-team race in which glaring weaknesses will be punished. The impact of Kimbrel’s potential bottoming out might be magnified by an...
    CNN's Jake Tapper called out 'crowing' New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for taking a self-congratulatory 'victory lap' and boasting about the state's handling of the pandemic, even as the virus has claimed over 32,000 lives. Tapper slammed the Governor for appearing on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Monday evening where he touted how New York has 'tamed the beast' in bringing the virus under control. At his daily coronavirus presser Cuomo boasted that people would be talking about how New York curbed the virus 'for decades to come'. 'New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo seems to be on something of a victory tour congratulating himself and the state for defeating the virus,' Tapper said Tuesday on CNN.

Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday saying: 'New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo seems to be on something of a victory tour congratulating himself and the state for defeating the virus' Tapper brought onto the show CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta who also bashed Cuomo's 'victory lap' saying: 'I think if anything what this virus...
    MANCHESTER CITY rival Phil Foden has echoed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's claims that Mason Greenwood is the best finisher he has seen. The United boss suggested the 18-year-old is the most prolific striker he has worked with after he bagged his 15th goal of the season against Bournemouth. 3 Greenwood is just one of the top England talents emerging on the big stage following similar impacts shown by Foden, Arsenal's Bukayo Saka and Chelsea ace Mason Mount. And despite Foden mixing it with the world's best including Man City's record scorer Sergio Aguero with 254 goals, he specifically singled out his Manchester United counterpart as the best finisher. Speaking to Premier League Productions, Foden said: "Mason Greenwood is the best I’ve seen finishing wise. "He’s both-footed in and around the box. He’s always going to score. "It’s just the right type of shot — he just knows when to finesse or lace it. The keeper’s never stable or set." When asked on how he compares to Aguero, Foden responded: "High up finishing wise. "For his age, he's unbelievable. I don't...
    Following Friday’s coronavirus task force briefing, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta started off his reaction by saying, “Despite what you heard, we are in the middle of a public health disaster.” “And it wasn’t an inevitable health disaster, to be clear,” he said. “One of the first things that was said is all 50 states are opening safely and responsibly. That’s simply not true.” Gupta said not a single state actually followed the strict opening criteria the task force laid out. “They say that we have greatly expanded testing. We’re still at 10 percent of the testing we should be doing at this point in this pandemic,” he continued. “They say we’ve had 45 days to stop the spread… We haven’t stopped the spread. We can put up the graph. You see what’s happened here. We’ve had our highest number of infections since this pandemic began. The highest just happened over the last 24 hours there. You know, this is a problem. We can spin it in all sorts of different ways. But the reality not only are things bad,...

    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace was adamant Tuesday evening about the controversy surrounding an apparent noose that appeared in his Talladega raceway garage stall after the FBI ended its hate crime investigation earlier that day. On CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, Wallace started the conversation by venting at critics who mocked him after the FBI discovered that the noose had been present in that stall since 2019, which meant that his team was not targeted with a racist symbol since it was randomly assigned to the stall this week. But as Lemon turned to the actual “garage pull” Wallace became adamant about the nature of the noose. “Have you seen ropes like that hanging from garages? Is that typical?” asked Lemon. “Don, the image I have and I have seen of what was hanging in my garage is not a garage pull,” Wallace replied. “I have been racing all my life. We have raced at hundreds of garages. That never had garage pulls like that. People that call it a garage pull and put out videos of knots being in as...
    Despite increases in coronavirus cases in several states, Ohio has seen a plateau in new cases and even a decrease in hospitalizations. Since the beginning of May, Ohio’s seven-day rolling average of new cases each day is down by 85 cases, the number of currently hospitalized patients has been cut by more than half and test results returning positive each day has dropped from 10.7 percent to 3.2 percent. Also, a smaller percentage of positive cases have resulted in hospitalizations. "We're not seeing any significant increase or reestablishment of a wave or a peak in Ohio and that’s great," Mark Cameron, an infectious disease researcher and professor in the school of medicine at Case Western Reserve University, told USA Today’s Cincinnati.com. "What that could mean is that people are still generally following the guidelines." The encouraging news doesn’t mean Ohio residents can simply throw caution to the wind, however. RACE FOR VIRUS VACCINE COULD LEAVE SOME COUNTRIES BEHIND Cameron told the outlet that people should continue to take precautions like social distancing and wearing a face mask. Cincinnati.com reported “it’s...
    The overall support by the American public stands in sharp contrast with the viewpoints of Donald Trump and other high-profile Republicans, who have harshly criticized the protests for years. In 2017, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers when some players kneeled during the anthem. "While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem," Pence said at the time. The same year, Trump attacked the protests. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag to say, 'get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired,'" Trump said. In the wake of protests sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man in Minnesota who died after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes, the Trump administration sent conflicting messages. Pence, despite previous attacks on NFL players' peaceful protests, claimed on May 29 that...
