By ASHRAF KHALIL, KEVIN FREKING and MICHAEL BALSAMO WASHINGTON — Shouting “Black Lives Matter” and “I can’t breathe,” hundreds of people converged on the White House for a second straight day Saturday to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and President Donald Trump’s response.

Dismal cap and trade auction is another reason to nix high-speed rail project

The results of the latest California cap and trade auction are in, and they are not good —especially for the state’s high-speed rail project. After February’s auction of pollution licenses brought $613 million to state coffers, the haul for the quarterly auction in May was a paltry $25 million. The low figure was expected due to the coronavirus pandemic and shelter-in-place orders reducing travel and thus the demand for emissions allowances.  But since the high-speed rail project is now primaril...

Jon Jones to Dana White: ‘Just go ahead and release me from my UFC contract’

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and company president Dana White have been in a verbal battle over the past week or so that has the champ asking for his UFC release.Jones had been trying to drum up a move to heavyweight to fight top contender Francis Ngannou. Jones wanted the bout. Ngannou wanted the bout. At least publicly. But White and the UFC don't appear willing to make it. The sticking point, according to White is Jones wanting an amount of money that he's not willing to...

What is and isn’t essential should be left up to individuals, not government: Soledad Ursúa

California’s “stay-at-home” orders have revealed a rather snobbish demarcation of businesses:  those that are essential, and those that, well, just are not. The demarcation is arbitrary, and increasingly, this condescension of who matters and who doesn’t is being resisted by everyday people in red and blue states. State leaders should rethink their classifications of what is essential and understand that ALL businesses are essential. Why? Simply put, they are essential to those who patronize the...

Violent week surfaces pain, problems locally and across the U.S.

It’s not your imagination: The unrest sweeping through America this week really is more widespread, and really is more violent, than any spree of national demonstrations since the 1960s. A country that guarantees the right to assemble in its constitution, and has always accepted public protest as a form of communication – from the Boston Tea Party to the Women’s March of 2017 – seems to be staggering into chaos one city at a time.

Lakers’ Quinn Cook keeps showing passion for his hoops roots

Quinn Cook’s online cul-de-sac is bursting with challengers. For the few weeks in April when Cook hosted a nightly marathon Instagram live feed, it drew all levels of players. He would air live feeds chatting with Kevin Durant and Victor Oladipo, All-Stars who hail from the same region in Maryland where Cook grew up. But he also would allow cameos from D.C.-area streetballers, whose names are known only in gyms and playgrounds, and who inevitably want a piece of him. It matters little that the L...

Supreme Court rejects challenge to California limits on church services

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Friday turned away a request from a church in California to block enforcement of state restrictions on attendance at religious services. The vote was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the court’s four-member liberal wing to form a majority. “Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with the free exercise clause of the First Amendment,” Roberts wrote in an opinion concurring in the u...
