  • MAN! I FEEL LIKE A WOMAN

    The boy Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, says mean Twitter messages made him feel like a woman, bringing to mind (for me, anyway) Shania Twain. But let’s set the stage: President Trump planned a major rally at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. Frey publicly stated that he would like to bar the president from entering his city, but sadly lacks the power to do so–that pesky Constitution again! He then came up with a clever way to achieve his goal of blocking Trump’s appearance–he sent the Target Center’s management a $530,000 bill for “security.” That didn’t work, and Trump...

    After you read this ask yourself if you saw any of it on the MSM. Donald Trump held a rally in Minneapolis the other day. There were protests held outside the arena and they provided everyone with a glimpse into how the world would look with firm democrat control. Have a look at how these animals act: Protests outside President Trump’s rally in Minnesota took a violent turn as demonstrators began to set fire to campaign memorabilia, confront police, and throw urine. Trump was speaking at a rally in Minneapolis Thursday night after sparring with Mayor Jacob Frey for a...
  • The eye-popping cost of Medicare for All (the Fauxcahontas $34 trillion wet dream)

    The Atlantic via MSN ^ | 10/16/19 | Ronald Brownstein
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to answer repeated questions at Tuesday night’s debate about how she would fund Medicare for All underscores the challenge she faces finding a politically acceptable means to meet the idea’s huge price tag — a challenge that only intensified today with the release of an eye-popping new study. The Urban Institute, a center-left think tank highly respected among Democrats, is projecting that a plan similar to what Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders are pushing would require $34 trillion in additional federal spending over its first decade in operation. That’s more than the federal government’s total cost...

    WESTERVILLE, Ohio—At an event in an ice cream shop downtown in this small suburb of Columbus, hours before Democrats’ presidential debate blocks away, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez held court with a dozen or so young, rising Ohio Democrats to declare that the national party was here for a reason. “We’re here in Ohio because Ohio’s a battleground,” Perez said, “and I’m confident we can win Ohio.” Perez wasn’t just trying to cheer up the troops. He was weighing in on a live, controversial question: Should Democrats give up on Ohio? For more than half a century, this question...

    Via the Free Beacon, lots of oohing and ahhing among the chatterati over this answer from last night’s CNN event. It’s “on brand,” if nothing else. Klobuchar’s betting that (a) the leftist vote will split half a dozen ways, (b) Biden either will choose not to run or get sunk by leftist grievances against him when he gets in, leaving the center to her, and (c) her regional appeal will help her to a surprisingly strong finish in Iowa, elevating her into the top tier. This question and answer were a perfect opportunity for her to establish her centrist...

    Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar has released a list of 100-plus executive orders she says she’d sign in her first 100 days in office. The orders include rejoining the Paris climate agreement and allowing prescription drugs to be imported from Canada. The list is intended to give voters an idea of what the first days in a Klobuchar White House would look like. …

    A Democrat seeking the party's 2020 presidential nomination faced sharp criticism on social media Saturday after linking that day's massacre in El Paso, Texas, to President Trump's rhetoric. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., one of nearly two-dozen Democrats hoping to block Trump's bid for a second term in the White House, made her remarks at a labor forum event in Las Vegas. “The individuals who do the shootings are responsible," Klobuchar said, referring to mass shootings such as the one in El Paso that left 20 dead and 26 injured, "but I do think Trump's rhetoric has fueled more hate in...

    FOX ^ | May 19, 2019 | Ronn Blitzer | Fox News l
    Presidential hopeful Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., did not mince words when she took aim at new abortion laws in Republican-led states, and promised to take action to counter such measures if she wins in 2020. Several states, such as Georgia, passed "heartbeat bills," which would forbid abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, typically after six weeks -- when many women do not yet know they are pregnant. Last week, Alabama banned nearly all abortions at any point in time, even in cases of rape or incest. "This is dangerous," she told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." "It...

    Presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar had her own 'please clap' moment during a CNN town hall event on Monday night as she the gathered audience that they were 'supposed to cheer'. The awkward moment came when the Democratic senator from Minnesota was asked how she could win back supporters of President Trump. 'Every single time I have won, I have won every single congressional district in my state — including Michele Bachmann's, OK? That's when you guys are supposed to cheer, OK?' Klobuchar told the crowd in the cringe-worthy moment.

    Her campaign floundering, Sen. Amy Klobuchar got herself into a telling moment, advising her audience to applaud for her. Apparently, she didn't even have a few cheerleaders among the campaign operatives to get the clapping started.

    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) and Southbend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg criticized Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) during Tuesday evening’s debate over her refusal to admit that her Medicare for All plan would require an increase in middle class taxes. “Let me be clear on this. Costs will go up for the wealthy. They will go up for big corporations. And for middle-class families, they will go down,” Warren said when asked if her proposal would require an increase in middle class taxes. “I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs for middle-class families.” The...

    Now that the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination has officially started, one of the big issues that will likely come up is which candidate is the most electable. One way to find that out is to see how the different possible candidates have done in the past. Of course, it's difficult to compare candidates when they run for different offices in different years. There are, however, six potential 2020 Democratic contenders ran who ran for the US Senate in 2018. The big takeaway from those results: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sherrod Brown of Ohio are above-average candidates...

    On Friday, anti-Trump protesters became violent outside the rally venue for President Donald Trump in Minneapolis , assaulting at least one female Trump supporter walking out of the event. In video captured by Alpha News MN, a young woman walking hand-in-hand with a young man in a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hoodie was sucker-punched by a female anti-Trump protester. “After the [Donald Trump] rally in Minneapolis, his supporters were attacked by left-wing extremists. An unprovoked assault on a woman was caught on camera by [Alpha News MN],” reported journalist Andy Ngo. “Mayor [Jacob Frey] defends charging Trump campaign $530k...

    President Trump’s reelection campaign says it is hiring staff and opening field offices in Minnesota and New Mexico, two traditionally blue states the president’s strategists have identified as having potential to flip in 2020. Still, the Trump campaign believes that both states are in play this time around. On a conference call with reporters, a senior official said the campaign is working on a “huge buildout” of paid staffers and a volunteer network in Minnesota that will dwarf their 2016 efforts there. In the past election, the campaign had only one staffer on the ground in Minnesota, and that person...

    If you had any questions about how antiwar liberals were going to respond when the Democrats didn't withdraw American troops from Iraq like they promised during the 2006 campaign, you got your answers last night on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." When the host moved the discussion to what the panel thought of "the Democrats, you know, caving in on this Iraq spending bill," actor Ben Affleck went on a tirade about these "f***ing people," saying that the "Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards" and of "looking like p***ies." Affleck concluded his attack on his...

    If this decision stands, every farmer in Minnesota who wants to add more cows (or other animals, presumably) to his farm will have to pay lawyers to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement that calculates the effect of the additional farm animals on the Earth’s average temperature. I can save them some money: the impact is zero, to however many decimal points you want to work it out to. Is this a big deal? It certainly is. Daley Farms has been trying since July 2017 to expand its operation. God only knows how much money it has spent already. With the...

    (CNN) — Tuesday night's CNN/The New York Times debate stage will feature a record 12 candidates. It could be the last debate appearance for up to 33% of them. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke are all in deep danger of not making November's debate. That means Tuesday may be the last chance fo those four to give their campaigns a realistic chance to have a measure of success. Fundraising and polling qualification thresholds have been bumped up once again for November's debate. Jumping...

    On Sunday, a class was held in Robbinsdale called "Black Boys With Guns." It's a class aimed at breaking social stigma. The course was created to give youth the opportunity to practice their firearm skills while also discussing gun-involved trauma that may have happened to them or someone they love. It's the second time organizers with "Strong Arm Protection" have lead a program of this kind. The team behind this program believes that educating young black youth will help curb gun violence in the greater Minnesota Community. This month, more than a dozen minority boys between 12-19 years old went...
