The protests planned to be held at several U.S. Google offices this weekend have been postponed by organizers. The so-called March on Google was announced after the company fired the author of a controversial memo about Google's diversity efforts and women's affinity for technical roles.

Details: In a statement posted online Jack Posobiec — the pro-Trump activist who organized the event — said that "credible Alt Left terrorist threats for the safety of our citizen participants" was a reason behind the decision. The statement said a "threat was made to use an automobile to drive into our peaceful march." No future date was given.

Context: The phrase "alt left" was used by President Trump yesterday to describe counter-protestors in Charlottesville during the white supremacist event that turned violent this weekend. Posobiec is a conspiracy theorist who has publicized things online like "Pizzagate," which alleged Democratic politician involvement in a child-sex ring.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has lost the Republican nomination for Senate to Tommy Tuberville in Alabama in Tuesday night’s primary runoff, AP reports.

Why it matters: Sessions had been the underdog in the race against former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, who had the backing of President Trump. Tuberville will now face off against Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) in November, who is considered to have one of the most vulnerable Democratic Senate seats in the country.

Bank CEOs brace for worsening economic scenario

Wells Fargo swung to its first loss since the financial crisis — while JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup reported significantly lower profits from a year earlier — as the banks set aside billions of dollars more in the second quarter for loans that may go bad.

Why it matters: The cumulative $28 billion in loan loss provisions that banks have so far announced they’re reserving serves as a signal they’re preparing for a colossal wave of loan defaults as the economy slogs through a coronavirus-driven downturn.
