Biden enters White House race without Obama's endorsement | 25 April 2019 | Former Vice President Joe Biden made his 2020 candidacy official on Thursday, but even his entry into the crowded Democratic primary field isn’t enough to move former President Barack Obama off the sidelines. Biden announced his run for president in an online video Thursday, after weeks of speculation and anticipation. After his announcement, Biden was asked why his former boss of eight years isn't publicly backing him. "I asked President Obama not to endorse," Biden told Fox News on Thursday outside an Amtrak station in Delaware, adding that "whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits."

The shooting attack took place at the Chabad of Poway Jewish congregation around 11.30am PT on Saturday, the San Diego County Sheriff's Office said. Four victims were transported to the Palomar Medical Center to be treated for gunshot wounds. One of them, an older woman, later died from her injuries.

US economy grows by 3.2% in the first quarter, topping expectations

US economy grows by 3.2% in the first quarter, topping expectations | 26 April 2019 | The U.S. economy grew at a faster pace than expected in the first quarter and posted its best growth to start a year in four years. First-quarter gross domestic product expanded by 3.2%, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said Friday in its initial read of the economy for that period. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected growth of 2.5%. It was the first time since 2015 that first-quarter GDP topped 3%. "The upside beat was helped by net trade (exports jumped while imports contracted sharply) and inventories which combined contributed almost 170 bps of the rise," wrote Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group.

Federal panel orders Michigan to redraw congressional, legislative maps for 2020

Federal panel orders Michigan to redraw congressional, legislative maps for 2020 | 25 April 2019 | Michigan would get new state legislative and congressional maps for the 2020 election -- and even special state Senate elections -- under a sweeping federal court judgment Thursday to end a gerrymandering lawsuit. A three-judge federal panel ordered the state Legislature to redraw at least 34 districts for the 2020 election in a lawsuit brought by the Michigan League of Women Voters. Though the ruling only explicitly affects those 34 districts, the effects of the ruling are sure to be broader since redrawing any district can also impact neighboring districts. And in what may be an unprecedented aspect of the decision, it requires special state Senate elections to be held in 2020, instead of 2022 as scheduled.

Twitter interfering in UK elections as the platform bans Tommy Robinson and Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin's campaign accounts

Twitter interfering in UK elections as the platform bans Tommy Robinson and Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin's campaign accounts --Both had already had their personal accounts banned from the platform - but now their campaign accounts are also suspended | 26 April 2019 | Twitter has banned the Euro election campaign accounts of Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin and far-right extremist Tommy Robinson. Benjamin, a vlogger who calls himself "Sargon of Akkad", had already been banned from Twitter in 2017 for violating the platform's rules on targeted abuse. And Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was permanently banned in March 2018 for violating its rules on "hateful conduct". [Shutting down private accounts is one thing; banning campaign accounts is a different ball of wax. It's only a matter of time before Deep State septic tank Twitter completely inserts itself in the 2020 US elections, just as Google did by manipulating search algorithms to rig the 2018 midterms. We are tired of the shadow-banning and dismantling of accounts just because Jack Dorsey and his merry band of SJW censors don't agree with the viewpoint of the account owner. It's time, long past time, to regulate these Big Tech totalitarians. --LRP]

The agenda suggested the purpose was training and coordination. But Ukrainian participants said it didn't take long -- during the meetings and afterward -- to realize the Americans' objectives included two politically hot investigations: one that touched Vice President Joe Biden's family and one that involved a lobbying firm linked closely to then-candidate Trump.
