  • Police brutality protest briefly blocks Edina intersection

    10/22/2016 4:03:24 PM PDT · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 16 replies ^ | 10/22/16 | Liz Sawyer
    About 100 people rallied and marched in Edina on Saturday to protest police brutality, blocking the busy intersection at 50th and France for about 40 minutes. The gathering, organized around the theme of "I Am a Man," was held to address the issues of racial profiling and police violence against black men, including fatal police shootings of Jamar Clark and Philando Castile. Its initial inspiration was last week's encounter between a black pedestrian and a plainclothes Edina police officer, part of which was caught on camera. Black men were invited to stand together on the steps of City Hall, where...

    BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (KMSP) - An act of democracy was met with an act of crime in Bloomington, Minnesota. The vandals were right on busy Normandale Boulevard when they torched the big Donald Trump sign on Lorri Kreuscher’s lawn. "It was Saturday night, probably 9 p.m., and someone came to our door and said, ‘Do you know your sign is on fire?’” Kreuscher said. The Trump sign was decorated with women's bras and lit on fire. It happened only a few feet from where vandals hit 3 weeks earlier, using road salt to kill the grass and spell out her candidate’s...
  • Coming next in ObamaCare: Insurance rationing?

    For Minnesotans, coming next is meant literally. In order to keep insurers from fleeing the Mnsure ObamaCare exchange, Commerce Commissioner Mark Rothman and Governor Mark Dayton had to agree to massive rate increases across the board, which have garnered most of the headlines and discussion in this state and around the nation. Another less-discussed concession, though, might have even worse portents for the unaffordable Affordable Care Act. Rothman and Dayton have allowed insurers to cap enrollments in order to limit their losses — an act of rationing that may set precedent for negotiations in other states. David Montgomery reported it...

    The man who stabbed 10 people at a Minnesota mall had become interested in Islam in the last several months, withdrew from his friends and encouraged female relatives to be more religious, the FBI said Thursday. "We were told (he) had not previously shown an interest in religion," but after 20-year-old Dahir Ahmed Adan did, he went from being a high academic performer to failing out of college "almost overnight," FBI Special Agent Rick Thornton said at a news conference. The attorney for Adan's family, Abdulwahid Osman, said his parents and close family members did not see the behavioral changes...

    While the NO HANDGUNS sign is cut off in this photograph, it clearly shows that the Crossroads Center, where the Islamic mass stabbing terror attack took place, was and is posted as a Gun Free Zone.In Minnesota, the sign has no legal weight.  Minnesota law prevents malls from banning guns from the common areas, but malls are not prevented from asking that visitors not carry guns.  The sign reads “please while shopping”.  That makes it a request, not a command.The difference can easily be lost on a someone who is not well schooled in the niceties of the law. ...

    Is Minnesota now a toss-up state? That’s the verdict from election-tracker site Real Clear Politics this week, which moved Minnesota out of the “Leans Clinton” category in its analysis of the presidential race between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. If Minnesota is a toss-up, though, the campaigns aren’t acting like it. Trump made campaign stops in neighboring Iowa and Wisconsin on Wednesday, but he skipped Minnesota. Clinton also appeared in Iowa on Thursday but skipped Minnesota — though her campaign did dispatch Anne Holton, wife of vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine, to an early voting event Thursday at...

    The move was sought by local East African immigrants. Immigrants traveling for 30 to 90 days could apply for a hardship which will reduce their rent to $75 a month while they are gone. The Star Tribune reported: Public housing residents in Minneapolis will no longer need to pay their normal monthly rent when travel abroad erases their income, a change particularly sought by East African immigrants. The board of the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority approved this week reverting to its previous policy of collecting only minimal rent during extended absences. The change takes effect once approved by federal housing...

    Local and national polling shows a neck and neck race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in Minnesota. MINNEAPOLIS, M.N. — For over 50 years, Minnesota has remained a safe haven for democratic presidential votes. Even in 1984, Minnesota was the only state in the union to vote for Walter Mondale instead of Ronald Reagan, who won in a landslide. However, a new KSTP/SurveyUSA poll shows the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is much closer than originally thought in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation. The St. Cloud, Minnesota, mass stabbing occurred at the city’s Crossroads Center mall on Saturday night. A Somali man allegedly shouted, “Allah,” as he stabbed nine people before he was shot dead by an off-duty officer. All nine victims stabbed at the Crossroads Center mall...

Democrat Clinton's strongest support came in the heavily Democratic areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul, where she held a...

Though the sighting of the moon placed this year’s Eid on Sept. 12, the proximity of a major holiday and a painful anniversary has fueled anxiety and led community leaders and local law enforcement to tighten security measures for Eid celebrations. “There has been...

    How does a Somali get elected to Minnesota’s state legislature? Because she’s from “Little Somalia,” Minneapolis, home to the largest Somali community in America. So it should come as not surprise that a Somali activist unseated one of the longest-serving members of the state legislature earlier this year in Minneapolis. Ilhan Omar defeated Rep. Phyllis Kahn who was in the legislature for 22 terms (44 years). Omar could be the first Somali in America to be elected to any state legislature if she wins in November. Minneapolis is recruiting ground for young terrorists. At least 36 Somali men from Minnesota...

Quaal said his farm has lost as much as $40,000 in a single month and figures the family operation lost a total of $300,000 last year....

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Ilhan Omar spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp as a young girl, fleeing with her family from civil war in Somalia. Two decades later, after forging a new life in Minnesota, she appears on the brink of becoming the nation's first Somali-American state legislator. Omar, a 33-year-old community activist, cried as she delivered victory speeches in English and Somali after defeating a 44-year incumbent in the latest sign of the Somali community's growing influence in the city and state. Her victory in a heavily Democratic Minneapolis district makes her a strong favorite in the general...
