Sen. Ted Cruz, contradicting 2016 remarks, cites possible contested presidential election in urgent push to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat

Sen. Ted Cruz, contradicting 2016 remarks, cites possible contested presidential election in urgent push to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seatSen. Ted Cruz on Sunday said he is calling on the Senate to vote on a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the November election, reversing the 2016 stand he and his fellow Republicans made to block the confirmation hearing of President Barack Obama's pick for the high court in an election year. During an interview on ABC's "This Week," Cruz told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that the nation cannot afford to have a short-handed high court with a possible contested presidential election just 44 days away. Cruz began the interview by saying he and his wife's prayers are with the Ginsburg family, "who are grieving the loss of someone who led an extraordinary life."

Oil refiners worldwide struggle with weak demand, inventory glut

Oil refiners worldwide struggle with weak demand, inventory glutGlobal oil refiners reeling from months of lackluster demand and an abundance of inventories are cutting fuel production into the autumn because the recovery in demand from the impact of coronavirus has stalled, according to executives, refinery workers and industry analysts. Refiners cut output by as much as 35% in spring as coronavirus lockdowns destroyed the need for travel. As lockdowns eased, refiners increased output slowly through late August.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg represented what 'is best about America': Bill Clinton

Police winning the war against county lines in rural Norfolk, say officers

Police winning the war against county lines in rural Norfolk, say officersCounty lines policing reforms have allowed officers to shut down 40 per cent of operations as they turn their focus from "mules" on the street to "controlling minds", police have said. Norfolk, which is a county lines hotspot, has been targeted by police after it emerged London drugs gangs were using children as young as 13 to transport and sell their wares on the street. Police began using the pay-as-you go mobile phones to trace the runners back to London, rather than just chasing the teenagers. The tactics began under the coronavirus lockdown, when police reported it was becoming easier to spot illegal activity because gang members stood out on the empty streets. Since the new drive started, 30 of 75 known lines have been closed down, police told the Guardian. Det Insp Robin Windsor-Waite, the officer leading Norfolk police's efforts, told the newspaper: "It is a massive rollback," adding that it was important police targeted the "controlling minds" operating a web of drugs runners, not just the often-exploited teenagers selling the drugs. "In the majority of cases, the arrest of the line controller terminates the line - and the risk associated with that line," he said. "Prior to this operation there was a degree of resignation to the continued exponential growth of county lines within Norfolk. The outlook has been transformed and our ambition is to completely eliminate the county lines business model from the county." Great Yarmouth on the Norfolk coast is one of the worst areas for county lines drug running in the UK. David Matthews, a Norfolk Police chief superintendent, said: "For a county force seen as an easy target, we have probably made the environment as hostile as we can." In the last eleven months, 146 London-based alleged county line holders have been charged with selling drugs across Britain. Their reach extended from Scotland to Kent and from south Wales to Norfolk, police said.

Tropical Storm Beta to drop a foot of rain in Texas and LouisianaForecasters warned on Sunday that coastal communities could be inundated with floods and see sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 km per hour), though the storm is expected to weaken as it moves inland. This month marks only the second time in history that the sheer number of storms has forced forecasters to turn to the Greek alphabet for names, having exhausted their alphabetical list of names selected before the season began. The first year that storms exceeded given names was 2005, when there were a record 27 named storms.

Majority of Americans, including many Republicans, say wait for election to replace Ginsburg - Reuters poll

Majority of Americans, including many Republicans, say wait for election to replace Ginsburg - Reuters pollA majority of Americans, including many Republicans, want the winner of the November presidential election to name a successor to Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Sunday. The national opinion poll, conducted Sept. 19-20 after Ginsburg's death was announced, suggests that many Americans object to President Donald Trump's plan, backed by many Senate Republicans, to push through another lifetime appointee and cement a 6-3 conservative majority on the court.

New York Attorney General Leticia James announces body camera reforms in response to Daniel Prude's death

New York Attorney General Leticia James announces body camera reforms in response to Daniel Prude's deathNew York Attorney General Leticia James announced reforms for releasing police-worn body camera footage in response to the handling of the death of Daniel Prude, a Black man who died in March after he was seen being pinned to the ground by Rochester Police officers. Prude's death and the delay in the release of the video has resulted in the attorney general's office implementing a new policy in which body camera footage will now be released earlier in the investigation process, as soon as jurisdiction has been established and the family has had a chance to see the video, James said. Previously, releasing any body camera footage was up to the discretion of the law enforcement agency, James said, describing speculation as to whether the video connected to Prude's death was suppressed due to the old policy as unfortunate.
