Trump and Biden hit unlikely battleground state of Minnesota

By WILL WEISSERT and KATHLEEN HENNESSEY | Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota has backed Democratic presidential candidates for nearly half a century and rarely receives much attention during the final stages of the race. This is when campaigns typically focus their resources on more traditional swing states like Florida or Pennsylvania. But Minnesota will feel like a genuine battleground on Friday as President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, campaign here to mark the...

SEATTLE — A U.S. judge on Thursday blocked controversial Postal Service changes that have slowed mail nationwide, calling them “a politically motivated attack on the efficiency of the Postal Service” before the November election.

By MICHAEL BALSAMO, ALANNA DURKIN RICHER and COLLEEN LONG | Associated Press WASHINGTON — In a private call with federal prosecutors across the country, Attorney General William Barr’s message was clear: aggressively go after demonstrators who cause violence.

Coronavirus: Gavin Newsom says California has no restrictions preventing Pac-12 football’s restart

Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said there is nothing in the California guidance to prevent Pac-12 teams from playing, a statement that seemingly contradicts his own rules. “There is nothing in the state guidelines that denies the Pac-12 from having conference games,” Newsom said in response to a question from the Bay Area News Group. “There is nothing that denies the games from occurring.” Newsom said he spoke this morning with Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. “I want to make this crystal cl...

Clippers coach Doc Rivers denies assertion that sports figures are ‘fanning flames of hatred’

In respect to social and racial justice, the NBA has spoken loudly, with words and deeds, during their weeks in the bubble — including putting a stop to the action last month after the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to take the court following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Doc Rivers’ voice has been among those leading the discussion. His impassioned statements on issues related to police abuse and racism in the United States drew praise from his colleagues and others, i...

Is there a legal basis for reparations? Ask the lawyer

Q: With all the protests about social injustice in our country now, one argument being made is that reparations should be paid for slavery. Is there a legal basis for that? -F.C., Tarzana Ron Sokol A: Discussion with regard to reparations for slavery is not new. In 1783, Belinda Royall submitted a petition to the Massachusetts General Court requesting a pension from the proceeds of her enslaver’s estate.

Trump blames California — again — for fires, blames Democrats for protests and street violence

LOS ANGELES — President Donald Trump reiterated Tuesday that California is responsible for its raging fires. He said in the course of a wide-ranging 47-minute telephone interview on Fox & Friends that there are forests throughout the world, some abutting cities, with even more “explosive” trees than California’s dead trees, “but no fires.” The president has said in the past that California should do a better job sweeping leaves off forest floors as a fire-prevention strategy. He then broached Th...

California Republicans: Give a call to your GOP cousins in swing states

In 33 years of interviewing California politicians, would-be or incumbent, as they seek the newspaper’s endorsement for office, I sometimes will ask who they themselves are supporting for president. Sometimes. As an aside. Usually, it’s obvious. I didn’t have to ask the late Rep. Carlos Moorhead, one of a tiny handful of House members who wouldn’t vote to impeach President Nixon even after the “smoking gun” Oval Office tape was played, if he still liked Tricky Dick. Of course he did. I never had...

Bahrain becomes latest Arab nation to recognize Israel

By MATTHEW LEE | AP Diplomatic Writer WASHINGTON — Bahrain has become the latest Arab nation to agree to normalize ties with Israel as part of a broader diplomatic push by President Donald Trump and his administration to further ease the Jewish state’s relative isolation in the Middle East and find common ground with nations that share its wariness of Iran.

Trump touts secret new weapon: ‘What we have is incredible’

By ROBERT BURNS | AP National Security Writer WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is expanding his arsenal of spectacular, but hard to explain, claims about U.S. military might. First, there were invisible airplanes. Then, a “super duper” missile. And now, a secret nuclear weapon. “I have built a nuclear, a weapon, I have built a weapon system that nobody’s ever had in this country before,” Trump said in an interview with journalist Bob Woodward for his book published this week. “We have stuff t...

Immigration Detention Center in Adelanto on track to expand

The Adelanto ICE Processing Center in San Bernardino County, the largest immigrant detention facility in the country, is set to expand.

LA needs to build HHH homeless housing faster and cheaper, says city controller

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Controller Ron Galperin released a report Wednesday that claims if the costs to build Proposition HHH-funded permanent supportive housing aren’t reduced, delays will continue, prices for materials will rise, and the city’s homeless population will increase. “Nearly four years after voters approved spending a billion-plus dollars to reduce homelessness, only three new housing projects are open and most won’t begin welcoming homeless Angelenos for two, three or even four ...

McConnell proposes ‘targeted’ coronavirus aid, Dems say it’s not enough

By ANDREW TAYLOR | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday the Senate would vote on a trimmed-down Republican coronavirus relief package, though it has a slim chance of passage in the face of Democrats’ insistence for more sweeping aid.
