On Monday, two plaintiffs filed what are believed to be the first lawsuits against a Texas doctor who admitted that he performed an abortion apparently in violation of the state’s new abortion law. The Texas law is unique in that it’s not enforced by state officials. Those realities could well persuade a Texas court that the Legislature overstepped its authority in deputizing citizens of other states to enforce Texas law. The Texas law appears to allow any person to sue those involved in providing unlawful abortions for money damages. But that point has absolutely nothing, zero-point-zero, to do with a complaint against Braid pursuant to the Texas abortion law.

REUTERS/Evelyn Hockstein/PoolWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. market is in a better position to absorb a potential global shock from a major company default compared with the years prior to the 2007-2009 financial crisis, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) chair Gary Gensler said on Tuesday. Gensler’s remarks follow a jittery trading day for Wall Street on Monday due in part to investor fears of contagion from a potential collapse of Chinese property giant China Evergrande Group. “I do think we are in a better position in 2021 to absorb some of those shocks than we were prior to the ‘08 crisis,” Gensler told the Washington Post during a livestreamed interview, citing reforms adopted following the decade-ago financial crisis to bolster the financial system. “But it doesn’t mean that we are isolated - our economies are connected around the globe.”

Mark Zuckerberg said he would avoid fact-checking political posts if Trump didn't impose heavy regulations, a new book says. Peter Thiel told an associate that Zuckerberg cut the deal during a meeting at the White House in 2019, the book claims. Zuckerberg denied that such a deal had been made, according to the book, saying the notion was "pretty ridiculous." During the meeting, Zuckerberg pledged to Kushner that he wouldn't fact-check political posts on Facebook as long as the Trump administration steered clear of regulating the platform, Thiel told a confidant, according to the excerpt. Last year, Facebook also confirmed to The Washington Post that though the fact-checking policy was officially announced in September 2019, Facebook formally put it in place in September 2018, prior to the conversation that Zuckerberg had with Thiel, Kushner, and Trump.

Lindsey Graham was reportedly unimpressed with Rudy Giuliani's voter-fraud arguments. He described them as "third grade", according to a new book, 'Peril', by Woodward and Costa. At the meeting, Giuliani discussed the election fraud evidence which he claimed could secure Trump a second term. "Give me some names," Graham reportedly said. I've tried to be helpful," said Graham on the Senate floor, distancing himself from the campaign to overturn the election.

He has called for Democrats to raise the debt ceiling on their own through a special budget process. Republicans supported raising the debt ceiling three times during the Trump administration. Yes, you've seen this movie before: President Joe Biden and McConnell played major parts in it too. Spurred on by the tea-party movement, Republicans sought to use raising the debt ceiling as a political cudgel against the Obama White House in 2011. Anxiety about congressional action over the debt ceiling didn't help matters either.

President Macron wants to delay an EU-Australia trade deal and EU-US talks in response, reports said. The latest sign was a series of reports that French President Emmanuel Macron is seeking to derail a planned EU-Australia trade deal to show its displeasure. "So it is unthinkable to move forward on trade negotiations as if nothing had happened with a country in which we no longer trust." Bernard Lange, chair of the European Parliament's trade committee, said trade talks were now "much more complicated." Australia's trade minister Dan Tehan meanwhile insisted that the rupture in relations with France would not affect the outcome of the trade deal.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that letting federal unemployment expire was based on fantasy — not data. Research on ending benefits early continually showed little impact on job growth and employment. Prior to the September 6 expiration of all federal unemployment benefits, 26 states opted out of benefits early. Last week, Ocasio-Cortez introduced the "Extend Unemployment Assistance Act of 2021," which would extend benefits through February 1, 2022 — and would pay out benefits retroactive to their September expiration. "We can't let pandemic unemployment assistance lapse when we're still recovering from the cost effects of the pandemic," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

An August 29 drone strike in Kabul killed 10 Afghan civilians, including seven children. Drone strikes conducted by the US, in Afghanistan and beyond, have often resulted in civilian casualties. Such concerns underscore the need for greater transparency from the government when it comes to drone strikes, Brooks said. Drone strikes, which the US has conducted everywhere from Somalia to Yemen, tend to occur in remote areas and far from reporters or watchdogs. The use of drone strikes in counterterrorism operations began under the Bush administration.

Yuri Gripas/ReutersSecurities and Exchange Commission Chairman Gary Gensler likened stable coins to "poker chips." Gensler returned to his previous analogy referring to the $2 trillion cryptocurrency market as the "Wild West." Stablecoins "are acting almost like poker chips at the casino right now," Gensler said in an interview with Washington Post columnist David Ignatius. "We've got a lot of casinos here in the Wild West and the poker chip is these stablecoins … at the casino gaming tables." The SEC is putting together a report about stable coins under the guidance of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Gensler said, adding that working with Congress "would help" in the regulation of stable coins.

Mnuchin started hiring staff for an investment fund that would seek backing from Persian Gulf State funds, the Washington Post first reported in here, citing people familiar with the plans. Prior to joining Trump’s administration, Mnuchin spent 17 years at Goldman Sachs before leaving in 2002, when he launched Dune Capital Management. As a Hollywood financier, he also made investments in movies such as “Avatar”, “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Suicide Squad”.

The Occupy Wall Street protest kicked off September 17, 2011, in lower Manhattan's Zuccotti Park. LOOKING BACK: Occupy Wall Street protesters had big goals.

Staff are leaving for better wages, including as bank tellers and nannies, companies said. The US Treasury Department said in a report last week that childcare workers are paid, on average, $24,230 a year — in the bottom 2% of all occupations. "This is a crisis," Diane Barber, executive director of the Pennsylvania Child Care Association, told The Post. "Parents are looking for child care, but now it's this Catch-22. We don't have the staff, so we can't open the classrooms, so families can't go back to work because they can't find child care."

The Washington Post is expanding its editor ranks as it pushes forward with plans for growth in national and international coverage under its new executive editor, Sally Buzbee. Ms. Buzbee, the former top editor of The Associated Press who took the helm at The Post in June, announced the creation of 41 editing roles in a note to staff on Monday, saying the positions would increase The Post’s capacity to cover global news as it breaks. The roles include two new deputy managing editors to The Post’s masthead to work alongside the existing two, one of whom will oversee The Post’s live coverage of developing news. A number of positions for assignment editors, breaking news editors and multiplatform editors will also be created, as well as two roles for editors charged with upholding newsroom standards. The new positions would increase the number of journalists of color in editing roles, Ms. Buzbee said in an interview.

A disbarred former attorney in Arkansas is suing a Texas doctor for performing an abortion. The lawsuit presents the first publicized legal challenge to Texas' new abortion restrictions. Dr. Alan Braid admitted to performing the abortion in a Washington Post opinion article on Saturday. The lawsuit represents the first legal test to the Texas abortion law — considered to be one of the most restrictive in the nation — that took effect on September 1. The Biden administration filed a lawsuit against Texas earlier this month in an attempt to block the law.

REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstSept 20 (Reuters) - A San Antonio physician who announced he gave an abortion to a woman in defiance of a new Texas law was sued in Texas state court on Monday by two plaintiffs from other states who want to test the law's constitutionality. "I think it's a decision between her and her doctor," he said when asked whether he supported giving women the right to choose abortion access. Monday's lawsuits are to date the most direct test of the legality of the Texas abortion ban, which is one of the most restrictive such laws in the United States. Abortion rights groups and the U.S. Justice Department have also sued Texas over the law in federal court, saying it violates a woman's constitutional right to abortion before the fetus is viable. Texas Right to Life, a state anti-abortion group, did not return a call for comment.

WASHINGTON — This is the week President Joe Biden had flagged for the launch of a massive coronavirus booster campaign that would eventually reach every vaccinated individual in the country. Instead, he's facing a booster effort bogged down in criticism and confusion at home and abroad. Once again, Biden found himself taking heat for an artificial deadline, with medical experts questioning the decision to put a public timeline on the widespread availability of booster shots. Although Biden announced the booster plan and timeline during a televised address, White House officials have sought to distance him from the effort in recent days, stressing that the decision was one made by his top health officials, including the acting FDA commissioner and CDC director. “We have always said that this initial plan would be contingent on the FDA and the CDC’s independent evaluation,” he said.

A new law took effect in Texas this month banning all abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. Dr. Alan Braid said in a Washington Post op-ed that he performed an abortion past that limit anyways. "I acted because I had a duty of care to this patient, as I do for all patients," he wrote. Other abortion providers in the state have said they turn away most of the women who contact them seeking abortions since the new law took effect. "I can't just sit back and watch us return to 1972."

Around 10,000 Haitian migrants are sheltering under the Del Rio International Bridge in Texas. The Biden administration is planning to deport the migrants, with flights due to begin on Sunday. Aerial footage showed thousands of Haitian migrants wading through ankle or waist-deep wateracross to reach the US from Mexico. The influx of Haitian migrants comes after a summer of political instability and tragedy in the Caribbean nation. After the events of this summer, the Biden administration curtailed deportation flights to Haiti, according to the paper.

Op-ed: Will China's President Xi’s big bet pay off?

Chinese President Xi Jinping is making the most audacious geopolitical bet of the 21st century. The Chinese state then took an equity stake in ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, and in Weibo, the micro-blogging platform. Regulators banned "American Idol"-style competitions and removed from the internet any mention of one of China's wealthiest actresses, Zhao Wei. The authors detail China's global efforts to not remake the world in its image, but rather "to make the world friendlier to its interests — and more welcoming to the rise of authoritarianism in general." Within President Xi's bold bet lie two opportunities for the U.S. and its allies.

Kellyanne Conway was brutally honest with Trump about his 2020 campaign missteps, per a new book. During the summer phone call, Conway reportedly told Trump to stop focusing on election grievances. But first, Conway told Trump that she wanted him to see her "as somebody else" and not just an advisor. The Trump 2020 campaign headquarters was in Arlington, Va., just minutes from the White House, while Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign was based in Brooklyn.

A preacher at a Texas megachurch is refusing to offer his congregation religious exemptions to COVID-19 vaccine mandates. He told the Associated Press that there is no "credible religious argument" for turning down a shot. Religious exemption letters are becoming more widely used as a "loophole" to avoid vaccine mandates, the AP said. But a Trump-loving preacher at a Texas megachurch has decreed that there is "no credible religious argument" for turning down a shot, the Associated Press said. According to a senior fellow for religious freedom at the Freedom Forum in Washington, religious exemptions are likely to be at the center of fierce legal battles in the coming months.
