Obama Compares Trump To Segregationist George Wallace During Eulogy For John Lewis

Obama eulogizes John LewisIn his eulogy of the late civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), former President Barack Obama compared President Trump’s crackdown on protesters in Portland to the actions of segregationist Alabama Governor George Wallace, known for his advocacy of Jim Crow laws in opposition of the civil rights movement.

Obama began his speech effusively praising Lewis as Martin Luther King’s “greatest disciple,” recounting his civil rights activism and declaring, “America was built by John Lewises” saying, “He as much as anyone has brought this country closer to our highest ideals."

Later in his speech, Obama made direct comparisons between today with the height of the civil rights movement, stating, “George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.”

An extensive collection of “extremely personal” documents in civil litigation against British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell can be unsealed, a Manhattan federal court judge ruled on Thursday.

The documents relate to Maxwell’s deposition in this litigation, as well as her early 2015 correspondence with her longterm associate, the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

New unemployment claims rose last week to 1.4M, ending months of declines

New unemployment claims at 4.1 million

Unemployment claims rose to 1.4 million last week, up about 100,000 from the week before, the Labor Department reported, ending 15 weeks of consecutive declines in new applications.

An additional 975,000 people applied for aid under the temporary federal pandemic unemployment assistance program, created to provide jobless aid to workers ineligible for traditional unemployment benefits, such as gig workers.

The increase in the number of workers seeking new aid comes as several states like California, Texas and Florida have closed some businesses down again, and coronavirus cases have shot up across the United States.

More than 30 million Americans are currently on unemployment and several states have delayed reopening plans in recent weeks -- shrinking the already small pool of available work.
