    The judge assigned to the cases of the four police officers charged with the killing of George Floyd once dismissed charges faced by organizers of a massive Black Lives Matter protest. In 2015, Judge Peter A. Cahill dismissed misdemeanor charges faced by 11 organizers of the protest which took place at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, in December 2014. Cahill's ruling was described as an "an extremely significant decision for free speech" by Jordan Kushner, who represented four of the 11 organizers. One organizer, Nekima Levy-Pounds, said after the decision: "We stand vindicated today." After graduating from the...

    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week” people were “not safe in Donald Trump’s America,” citing an “increase in hate crimes” and the coronavirus pandemic. Klobuchar said, “I have long condemned looting, violence, threats. That’s not peaceful protest, and I don’t care who’s engaging in it. You condemn it, and of course, Joe Biden has clearly condemned it, but let’s step back. This isn’t just happening in one place. It’s happening all over the country. It is happening under Donald Trump’s watch. What is going on? We have innocent people like George Floyd shot by...

    Vice President Amy Klobuchar is not in the cards. The Minnesota senator withdrew her name from the list of possible running mates Thursday night, reasoning Democratic nominee Joe Biden should use the “moment to put a woman of color” on his ticket.

    "I’ve already said I’m going to pick a Supreme Court justice who is a woman of color," Biden said. "I’ve already said my cabinet will be full of people of women of color. Men and women of color. I also already said that there are women of color under consideration. That is not the only criteria to determine who will be the vice president of the United States of America that I’ll choose as a running mate. It is just beginning the process. I guarantee you, there are more — there’s more than one African American woman being considered for...

    Protesters angered by the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died while in police custody, gained access to a Minneapolis police precinct on Thursday, the third straight night of violent protests spreading beyond the city. Livestream video showed the protesters entering the building, where fire alarms blared and sprinklers ran as blazes were set. Dozens of businesses across the Twin Cities were boarding up their windows and doors Thursday in an effort to prevent looting, with the Minneapolis-based Target announcing it was temporarily closing two dozen area stores. Minneapolis shut down nearly its entire light-rail system and...
  • Amy Klobuchar Mocks Donald Trump for Hydroxychloroquine Use After Her Husband Was Treated With Antimalarial Drug For Covid-19

    Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is among the many critics of President Donald Trump who have openly mocked his decision to take controversial anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure against COVID-19. But what Klobuchar hasn't widely discussed is that her husband also took the drug when he had the disease."They say that hydroxychloroquine can lead to hallucinations," Klobuchar posted on Twitter May 20, in response to a seemingly random tweet from the president about the Democratic primary several weeks after it had already ended with former Vice President Joe Biden as the presumptive nominee. They say that hydroxychloroquine can lead...

    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) had a better than expected 2020 run. She wasn’t favored to win at all, but her debate performances allowed her to increase her profile among voters and give her that critical cash flow to survive another day. She dropped out, along with former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg earlier this year in a move that many viewed as an effort to get the centrist Democratic bloc around Joe Biden and prevent a replay of the bloody progressive-establishment war back in 2016. So, is Amy veep material? Not anymore. If she was being considered, it all ended...

    The Washington Times reported: Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who is in the running to be presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden’s running mate, found herself under fire Thursday for not prosecuting years ago a Minneapolis police officer who this week was videotaped kneeling on the neck of an African-American suspect who died in custody… …During the eight years she was a Minnesota prosecutor, prior to winning her Senate seat, Ms. Klobuchar passed on opportunities to prosecute Mr. Chauvin and several other officers accused of dubious conduct, according to reports in The Guardian newspaper and left-wing outlets such as The...

    George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record. Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, including the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck as he protested, The Guardian reports. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derick Chauvin saw at least 10 conduct complaints during his 19-year tenure before he was fired Tuesday

    Revelation that her husband recovered from COVID-19 with the aid of hydroxychloroquine has lowered Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar's odds for snagging the spot as Biden's vice-president on the Democratic ticket for this year's election. CNN's Chris Cuomo called it "a likely coup de grâce for her. This is the drug touted by Trump. Every Democrat is expected to hold to the Party line view that it is dangerous and ineffective." Klobuchar has publicly adhered to the Party line, calling the drug "a menace" and mocked Trump's recent declaration that he has taken it as a preventive therapy. She sought to...

    Two days before Super Tuesday, NAACP Minneapolis and Black Lives Matter activists protested Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar's rally before it began over her involvement with the murder conviction of a black teen. Klobuchar canceled the rally. The next day, unable to curry enough support nationwide, she ended her campaign for president, looked into a television camera from Dallas, and told her home state of Minnesota to support former Vice President Joe Biden.

    US Senator Amy Klobuchar, the failed Democratic presidential candidate from Minnesota, was on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" shilling for Joe Biden's campaigning and making outrageous and false statements about President Trump using Democratic talking points. It was hard to flag all of the lies and distortions, but one really took the prize: Klobuchar claimed that Trump had advised the public "to chug bleach" to kill the COVID-19 virus. Of course, Trump never said any such thing, but Stephanopoulos made no attempt to correct any of Klobuchar's falsehoods. Maybe Klobuchar imagines herself as the Vice Presidential pick for "Clueless Joe."

    Illinois voters will still face a dizzying choice of 13 presidential candidates if they choose to vote in the state’s Democratic Primary — even though less than a handful are still in the race. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg became the latest to fold his candidacy on Wednesday, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is said to be reassessing her run. But both names are on early voting touch screens and will appear on March 17 ballots. With the dust still settling from Super Tuesday, the remaining candidates probably have other concerns than losing a few sympathy votes to departed...
