    Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency Wednesday for Charlottesville, Virginia, in preparation for the one-year anniversary of last year’s deadly white nationalist Unite the Right rally that left three dead and dozens injured. The state of emergency will last from Wednesday through the rally's anniversary Sunday. Northam said because of anniversary events, rallies, and protests planned in Charlottesville and in nearby Washington, D.C., he ordered a state of emergency to "prepare and coordinate our response to ensure the protection of residents’ lives, property, and Constitutional rights.”

    CNN correspondent Jim Acosta went on a lengthy rant against White House attacks on the media on Thursday, suggesting he and his fellow reporters chant on Pennsylvania Avenue "we're not the enemy of the people" in protest against President Donald Trump's claims that they are. Acosta has had a series of public spats with Trump, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other Trump officials, and he frequently tweets about his efforts to get questions answered. Trump has called Acosta "fake news," and he has become a target of fervent Trump supporters, who were seen jeering and cursing him...

The nominee, Zak Ringelstein, announced Wednesday that he was traveling to McAllen, Texas, to deliver personal items, including toys, books and blankets to the immigrant children currently being held there. A Facebook Live video, which contains the arrest, shows Ringelstein waiting outside the center, being told he cannot go in, and then arguing with border patrol agents in the parking lot.

    Video at link. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a New York audience this week that Fox News is giving her public statements unfair scrutiny because she is now a private citizen. President Trump’s 2016 campaign rival told a sold-out room at Rutgers University last week that reporters should stop telling her to “go away,” but on Tuesday she delivered a slightly different message. Mrs. Clinton told a group of women that she is part of “the resistance” against the White House’s agenda, but she wants less coverage of her efforts from Fox.

    A Wisconsin wife has opened up about how Internet trolls tried to drag her down for being married to 'Mr Six-Pack'. Wedding photographer Jenna Kutcher, who describes herself as 'curvy', has posted several photos on Instagram with her husband, Drew. She said she's received many direct messages before shaming her body but that one in particular was someone saying 'they couldn't believe [she] had managed to land a guy as good looking' as Drew. Jenna told Yahoo Lifestyle that the message shook her confidence and brought up past insecurities, but she decided to combat them instead of letting them fester.
  • House Democrats’ surveillance memo at stand still, unclear when or if it’ll be released

    Rep. Adam B. Schiff said Thursday he’s uncertain when the Democratic memo concerning alleged surveillance abuses will be released and he wouldn’t say whether he’ll work on it next week while Congress is out of town. His comments come roughly one week after the White House refused to release the memo, saying sensitive information in the memo as drafted would betray national security interests. But with Congress being out on recess next week, and the White House potentially having five days to review the edited version, the memo may not get released until next month — if at all.

    Lukasz Niec was 5 years old when his parents brought him and his sister to the United States from Poland. With two suitcases in tow, his parents — both doctors — left behind a country on the verge of social turmoil. It was 1979, about two years before the country’s authoritarian communist government declared martial law. Niec received a temporary green card and, in 1989, became a lawful permanent resident. He grew up in Michigan, went to medical school, became a doctor, and raised a daughter and stepdaughter. But on Tuesday morning, immigration authorities arrested Niec at his home, just...

    Police said Friday they found "no evidence" that officers used excessive force in detaining Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett during an August incident in Las Vegas and that they had reasonable suspicion to make the stop. Bennett has accused police officers of racial profiling, saying they pointed guns at him and used excessive force in the incident, which occurred outside a nightclub after the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor fight on Aug. 26. The body camera of the officer who initially detained Bennett was not turned on. Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Friday that police sorted through 861 videos,...

    Chelsea Manning was turned back at the Canadian-U.S. border because she was convicted of espionage for passing information to Wikileaks, the former U.S. intelligence analyst said on Monday. Manning told Reuters via direct message on Twitter that she drove up to the Canadian border in Lacolle, Quebec, on Thursday evening, planning to vacation in Montreal and Vancouver. She said she was stopped at the border and detained overnight before being handed a report stating she was inadmissible “on grounds of serious criminality,” according to a picture of the report she posted online.
