National Guard fired shot that killed Louisville restaurant owner

Source: Lexington Herald Leader

David McAtee, a black restaurant owner who was fatally shot amid protests last week in Louisville, was killed by a bullet fired by the Kentucky National Guard, a state official said Tuesday.

J. Michael Brown, Gov. Andy Beshear’s executive cabinet secretary, said lab tests have concluded McAtee was killed by a single gunshot wound to the chest from a bullet fired by a National Guard officer.

Officials have not yet been able to determine the exact weapon the bullet was fired from. Two guardsmen and two officers with the Louisville Metro Police Department fired at least 18 bullets in McAtee’s direction that evening, Brown said.

The “fatal shot came from the National Guard,” Brown said. “We have no doubt about that.”

A 'misclassification error' made the May unemployment rate look better than it is.

Source: Washington Post

When the U.S. government’s official jobs report for May came out on Friday, it included a note at the bottom saying there had been a major “error” indicating that the unemployment rate likely should be higher than the widely reported 13.3 percent rate.

The special note said that if this “misclassification error” had not occurred, the “overall unemployment rate would have been about 3 percentage points higher than reported,” meaning the unemployment rate would be about 16.3 percent for May.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics, the agency that puts out the monthly jobs reports, said it was working to fix the problem.

“BLS and the Census Bureau are investigating why this misclassification error continues to occur and are taking additional steps to address the issue,” said a note at the bottom of the Bureau of Labor Statistics report.

Obama should address the nation tonight...

He should ask for network and cable news time and talk to the nation as only he could. He should fill the leadership vacuum that our nation is experiencing now.

FBI serves warrant on senator in investigation of stock sales linked to coronavirus

Source: L.A. Times

WASHINGTON —

Federal agents seized a cellphone belonging to a prominent Republican senator on Wednesday night as part of the Justice Department’s investigation into controversial stock trades he made as the coronavirus first struck the U.S., a law enforcement official said.

Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, turned over his phone to agents after they served a search warrant on the lawmaker at his residence in the Washington area, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss a law enforcement action.

The seizure represents a significant escalation in the investigation into whether Burr violated a law preventing members of Congress from trading on insider information they have gleaned from their official work.

Burr sold a significant percentage of his stock portfolio in 33 different transactions on Feb. 13, just as his committee was receiving daily coronavirus briefings and a week before the stock market declined sharply. Much of the stock was invested in businesses that in subsequent weeks were hit hard by the plunging market.

Equipment pulled from Long Island, NY for project near Mar-a-Lago returns

A dredge transferred earlier this year from Long Island to a non-emergency project near President Donald Trump’s Florida resort has returned to the South Shore and resumed repairs on beaches damaged by superstorm Sandy in 2012, Sen. Chuck Schumer said Sunday

A second dredge that had been transferred to the project near Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort will return to Long Island on Friday, Schumer (D-N.Y.) said during a news conference in Manhattan.

“We are glad the dredge is back,” the Senate minority leader said. “It never should have been diverted for a non-emergency project in the first place.”

The Army Corps of Engineers said its contractor, Weeks Marine, will complete work in Point O’ Woods and Ocean Bay Park on Fire Island, part of the Fire Island to Moriches Inlet Stabilization Project (FIMI), as scheduled by June 19.
