Facebook pledged to fight misinformation about climate change. Then it suspended a slew of environmentalist groups.

Ollie Millington/Getty Images The Facebook accounts of several environmentalist groups were suspended this week, leaving them unable to post on Facebook or send messages through the platform. Groups that focus on climate justice including Greenpeace USA, Climate Hawks Vote, and Rainforest Action Network said they were suspended without warning. The suspensions came a week after Facebook vowed to crack down on misinformation that denies the existence of climate change and rolled out a "cli...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Casket Arrives At Supreme Court For Memorial Service

WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of people are expected to pay their respects at the Supreme Court to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the women’s rights champion, leader of the court’s liberal bloc and feminist icon who died last week. Even with the court closed to the public because of the coronavirus pandemic and Washington already consumed with talk of Ginsburg’s replacement, the justice’s former colleagues, family, close friends and the public will have the chance Wednesday and Thursday to ...

Dodgers Clinch NL’s Top Seed, West Title With Win Over A’s

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Wrapping up an NL West title has become routine for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but in a year in which no one was sure three months ago if there would be a baseball season, manager Dave Roberts wanted his team to still savor the moment. The Dodgers clinched the NL’s top postseason seed and eighth straight division title Tuesday night with a 7-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics. They are third team to win at least eight straight division titles, joining the Atlanta Braves (14 st...

Justin Turner’s return to third base for Dodgers delayed by more hamstring discomfort

LOS ANGELES — Justin Turner returned to the Dodgers’ lineup a week ago. His return to third base will have to wait a little longer. Turner was a last-minute scratch from the Dodgers’ lineup Tuesday against the Oakland A’s with left hamstring discomfort. Turner missed 14 games with a strained left hamstring suffered during the Dodgers’ series in Texas in late August. He returned last week to play five games as the DH, going 7 for 18 (.389). He was scheduled Tuesday to make his first start at thir...

Whistling Past The Graveyard: Senate GOP Pretending So Hard New Justice Won’t Kill ACA

John Roberts can’t save them now.   GOP senators are close to putting on the Supreme Court a justice who could be the deciding vote to kill Obamacare, delivering to the Republican Party its decade-long goal – and exposing it to the political repercussions previous failures have spared it, and during a pandemic, no less.  Accordingly,  Senate Republicans don’t seem too happy about their new prospect of ripping out Obamacare by the roots. As is usually the case when it comes to the popular...

Republican Roger Marshall and Democrat Barbara Boiler vie for an open US Senate seat in Kansas

Rep. Roger Marshall Associated Press GOP Rep. Roger Marshall is running against Democratic State Senator Barbara Bollier to replace retiring Sen. Pat Roberts in Kansas.  Bollier will face an uphill battle against Marshall, the preferred pick of the Republican establishment whose Senate bid was backed by Roberts and other prominent Republicans.  The protracted and hotly-contested Republican primary fight, however, allowed Bollier to amass a massive cash advantage over Marshall.

What Happens When John Roberts Can’t Be The Swing Vote Who Moderates The Court?

In opinions that came down this summer, Chief Justice John Roberts seemed to be settling into a new era of the Supreme Court, with him as the swing justice. But that era may already be over, with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death on Friday. In giving Republicans the opportunity to cement 6-3 conservative control of the court, Ginsburg’s death made it much harder for Roberts to steer the court in a more moderate direction in cases where the conservative position put its legitimacy at risk...

Dodgers’ Corey Seager feeling ‘strong again,’ and his quality of contact has been a big hit

Baseball’s new age of quantifying everything has myriad ways to measure the simple — though not easy — act of connecting bat to baseball. They all confirm what the eyes and ears have been telling us: Corey Seager is doing it as consistently well as anyone in baseball this year. According to Statcast, the Dodgers shortstop has put the barrel of the bat to a baseball in 12.6 percent of his plate appearances this season. No one in baseball has done it at a higher rate. Seager has been credited with...

Mookie Betts’ power just one way he has been even better than expected for Dodgers

Dave Roberts knew the Dodgers were getting a five-tool player when they acquired Mookie Betts. But he had to admit — one of those tools surprised him. “I didn’t realize — he’s not that big of frame — it’s more power than I expected,” Roberts said after Betts hit three home runs in a game (for the MLB record-tying sixth time in his career) against the San Diego Padres just about two weeks into this season. “In Summer Camp, he said he was struggling, couldn’t put the bat on the ball, and in an int...

Hold off on Ruth Bader Ginsburg replacement: Tom Campbell

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg deserves all the tributes she has been receiving. Her record of perseverance in overcoming many obstacles placed in her path just because she was a woman is an inspiration to all Americans. Her judicial record is a testament to a consistently liberal jurisprudence, well reasoned within the traditional rules of legal argument. She served America well. Much more should be said about Justice Ginsburg, by many far more qualified than I; but there is an immediate issue tha...

Dodgers’ Adam Kolarek is thriving in a versatile role

When Major League Baseball raised the minimum number of batters a pitcher must face from one to three, Adam Kolarek was on a short list of players whose jobs might have been jeopardized. In last year’s National League Division Series, Kolarek had one job: to retire the opposing team’s best left-handed hitter in a high-leverage situation. That happened to be Washington Nationals slugger Juan Soto. Kolarek held Soto hitless in three plate appearances and didn’t pitch to anyone else in the series. ...

3 Big Ways RBG’s Death Could Have An Immediate SCOTUS Impact

Even before it’s determined whether President Trump will get to fill the seat left vacant by the Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, her absence could have a big impact on disputes already before or likely headed to the Supreme Court. When Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016, the 10 months the court was down to eight justices created four-four splits that deferred to how the lower court handled the issue, including in some major cases. Here are three ways Ginsburg’s death could shift the dyn...
