House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday would not rule out impeachment as an option to stop President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court pick from being confirmed to the bench, saying Democrats will “use every arrow in our quiver” to block the eventual nominee. Just hours after it was announced that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed that a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court to fill her vacancy “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.” During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi

The World Health Organization (WHO) has agreed rules for the testing of African herbal remedies to fight Covid-19.
Sound science would be the sole basis for safe and effective traditional therapies to be adopted, it said. Any traditional remedies that are judged effective could be fast-tracked for large-scale manufacturing. Madagascar’s leader has been promoting an untested product he says can cure the disease despite the WHO warning against using untested remedies. The WHO said the new rules were aimed at helping and empowering scientists in Africa to conduct proper clinical trials. The move comes as the number of confirmed cases

President Donald Trump is presumed to be the choice of Christian conservatives, but is he really what we want? Very few of us would want our children to grow up to be like him. We cringe at what he says and tweets, remembering that “Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Many of us find his transactional view of life vile in comparison to the Scripture’s teaching of the sacredness of life. (Snip) On abortion, have you ever heard Biden speaking comfortably on the topic? Unlike Hillary Clinton, who emphasized abortion rights in her campaign, Biden is

WASHINGTON – Two female U.S. Appeals Court judges are on President Donald Trump’s short list of candidates to fill the Supreme Court vacancy opened up by the death on Friday of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a source said on Saturday. Barbara Lagoa, a Cuban American, and Amy Coney Barrett, a conservative Catholic, were among the top contenders, the source said. Both women were nominated to their current positions by Trump. Lagoa, 52, a former Florida Supreme Court judge, was nominated by Trump to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in September of 2019. Prior to that she spent less than a

Washington DC – Indian-American judge Amul Thapar is among the top names being considered by US President Donald Trump to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to multiple media reports. Ginsburg died on Friday at the age of 87. Trump, who on Saturday indicated that he wanted to move “without delay” on naming a replacement, has not indicated who it will be or when. But he has had a list of potential candidates for a long time, which he updated recently with 20 names. Thapar has been on the list for a while and had made it to the list of

The University of Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum has removed a collection of shrunken heads on display over concerns that they “reinforced racist and stereotypical thinking.” On Monday, the acclaimed museum shared in a statement that visitors will see a number of “contentious displays” removed from its exhibits when its doors reopen to the public on Sept. 22. (Snip) While the heads have been one of the museum’s most popular attractions since the 1940s, museum director Laura Van Broekhoven said that many visitors found the remains as “a testament to other cultures being ‘savage’, ‘primitive’ or ‘gruesome’.” According to the museum

A wedding in rural Maine became a coronavirus “superspreader” event that left seven people dead and 177 infected. Now, for the community and wider region, which had relaxed social-distancing rules introduced earlier in the crisis, the news was a brutal wake-up call. (Snip) Dr. Nirav Shah, director of the Maine Center for Disease Control, said that none of the seven people who died had actually attended the wedding. Contact-tracers linked the wedding to several virus hotspots across the state — including more than 80 cases in a prison 230 miles (370 kilometers) away, where one of the guards had attended the

Joe Biden has one major goal when it comes to the presidential debates: Don’t let President Trump get away with a single thing. Aides and allies to Biden say the Democratic nominee needs to be ready to fact check Trump in real time and not let the president get away with exaggerating or distorting his record. And they say he needs to aggressively hold him accountable when the candidates meet on state Sept. 29 in Cleveland. (Snip) There is a palpable fear among some Democrats about whether Biden is up for the challenge, and whether being too aggressive could backfire.

Joe Biden praised the idea of incorporating fact-checkers into the presidential debates, but those desperately needed fact-checkers were nowhere to be found at CNN’s town hall event with Biden on Thursday. (Snip) Biden also repeated debunked conspiracy theories about the Post Office and mail collection boxes, though he couldn’t remember the name of “those, those, those, um, places where you mail your ballots.” Biden blamed President Trump for the coronavirus pandemic, saying that “if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive.” To prove his preposterous claim, Biden told the crowd to simply “look at

NEW YORK – With only four days’ notice, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday delayed in-person learning at public schools for a second time for most students as the nation’s largest system struggles to find enough staff willing to teach in classrooms during the coronavirus pandemic. (Snip) The delay came after leaders of the teachers’ unions contacted de Blasio on Wednesday with “real concerns,” according to the mayor, who oversees a school system that serves more than 1.1 million children. “Although they acknowledge that some real progress had been made, not enough had been made, and more

Kroger, one of the country’s largest supermarket chains, is being sued in federal court after two former employees claimed they were wrongfully terminated for refusing to wear an apron with a rainbow symbol. The ex-employees, who identify as Christian, cited religious objections in their refusal to wear what they believed was an “endorsement of the LGBTQ community,” according to the lawsuit. The complaint was filed Monday by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of Brenda Lawson, 72, and Trudy Rickerd, 57, who both worked at a Kroger store in Conway, Arkansas, for several years before being fired last spring
