The writing’s on the wall — er, road. Fed-up New Yorkers painted a massive stretch of Brooklyn blacktop with the yellow message “F–k Cuomo and de Blasio” over the weekend in the vein of Hizzoner’s “Black Lives Matter” art, only for the city to quickly scrub the statement. The not-so-subtle shout-out to Gov. Andrew Cuomo... New York Post
VOA VIEW: It's more appropriate than writing BLM.
Portland protesters returned to the streets over the weekend — after a brief respite due to raging West Coast wildfires, according to reports.

President Donald Trump on Saturday, just hours after the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, tweeted Senate Republicans have an "obligation, without delay" to act on his nominee for the Supreme Court before November's presidential election. “We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. "We have this obligation, without delay!"
Later, before departing the White House for a campaign rally in North Carolina, he told reporters that he will decide on a nominee by "next week," calling his shortlist "the greatest list ever assembled." "I think it's probably, from a legal standpoint, from a sophisticated understanding of the law, from a constitutional standpoint, I think it's the greatest list ever assembled," Trump said, adding he most likely will be choosing a woman. "If somebody were to ask me now, I would say that a woman would be in first place, yes," he said. "The choice of a woman, I would say, would certainly be appropriate."
The Senate must do their job and pass the President's nominee to the Supreme Court. The country, now more than ever, must have a solid conservative Court.
