North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein advised people on Saturday to not follow President Donald Trump's directions with regard to going to polling places on Election Day to check if their mail-in vote was counted.

Americans Continue to Flee States With Higher Taxes

WASHINGTON—States with the highest tax burdens, such as New York, Illinois, and California, continue to lose residents this year as tax rates have a significant effect on the growth and prosperity of the states, economists say. “The evidence is clear that competitive tax rates, thoughtful regulations, and responsible spending lead to more opportunities for all Americans,” according to the “Rich States, Poor States” report by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a conservative nonprofit organization. The annual report ranks states based on their competitiveness and economic outlook by examining the policy choices made by the states and their impact. In 2019, Utah ranked No. 1 for economic outlook, followed by Wyoming, Idaho, Indiana, and North Carolina; the state has earned the top ranking for 13 consecutive years. According to Jonathan Williams, ALECs chief economist, Utah has implemented many reforms “that have been ahead of the curve.” Utahs lawmakers saw the unfund..

Pelosi Says Shell Accept the Results If Trump Wins Reelection

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that she would accept the results if President Donald Trump wins in November and is reelected as president. However, Pelosi said that Democrats will attempt to focus on changes that were made to the U.S. Postal Service in recent days and “Russian interference.” “Of course. But that doesnt mean that we will not shout out against his initiatives, whether its to tie up the Postal Service so that we will not have the opportunity for people to vote by mail, to not having to choose between their health and their vote,” Pelosi told CNN. “It doesnt mean that we ignore the Russian interference into our election and they try to cloak it by saying, Well, we look at many countries. No, the Russians 24/7 are interfering into our election.” Without evidence, Pelosi said that Trump “welcomes it,” apparently referring to Russian interference. Trump has long said that he has not colluded with the Kremlin while former special counsel Robert Mueller fo..

White House: Palestinian–Israel Issue Ultimately Will Be Resolved

The thorny Palestinian–Israel conflict will be resolved “at some point,” a top White House adviser said on Aug. 17, pointing to the recent normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). “People are looking at all of the great opportunities that can exist by working together if we let go of conflicts of the past and figure out how to carve a much brighter and better future,” Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and senior adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, told reporters on a phone call. “We do believe that there will be more normalizations with Israel and we do believe at some point, the Palestinian–Israel issue will be resolved.” The Israel–UAE deal sent shockwaves throughout the Middle East. It was just the third such agreement since Israel became an independent nation, and the first since Egypt and Israel finalized a deal in 1979. While Iran and Turkey condemned the move, Bahrain and Oman are said to be considering whether to formalize ties with Isra..

Earlier this month, negotiations between the White House and Democrats stalled over issues such as federal unemployment benefits and whether to provide funding to state and local governments. “Im hoping what were talking about today is not that last tranche that we will make, but as of the moment, today, I cant tell you with certainty were going to reach an agreement,” he said, before adding that talks have been bogged down by the looming November election between presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump. Democrats in the House passed a $3.4 trillion relief ..
