    MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Two days have passed since the private fundraiser held for Donald Trump at the Minneapolis Convention Center and stories are still trickling in about the events of the night. As Alpha News reported, Donald Trump never made a public appearance in Minneapolis but showed up to a quiet and private event at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Friday night. However, that did not stop protesters from showing up by the dozens to show their displeasure with the Republican-endorsed candidate. Trump supporters and donors were met with verbal and physical violence as they tried to enter and exit...

    I’m old enough to remember the good old days when everyone was terribly concerned about Donald Trump rallies and how his supporters would probably go all nutcase on the world, turning violent and gunning down random passers by if they happened to feel like it. After all, what else would you expect? Thankfully, all of the forces opposed to Trump are far more civil, expressing their discontent with his candidacy in the form of strongly worded letters to the editor or prayer circles calling for peace. Take for example, the events outside of this meeting with fundraisers in Minneapolis. (The...

    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...

John Quaal, 71, operates a dairy farm near Fergus Falls and tells Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/2b5RcoD ) that it's nearly impossible to break even producing milk. "For almost two years now we've been going backwards," said Quaal. "You've got to learn to deal with it I guess. It's just the way it is." 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....

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...

    ASHINGTON, D.C.

According to the Washington Post, “that means survivors no longer will be forced to trek across campus to a Title IX office.” But that also means that students, or perhaps even non-students, can, just with a few keyboard clicks, trigger a criminal and/or administrative investigation of the student or faculty member named, irreparably smearing his reputation, and perhaps even leading to his expulsion, and to do...

At issue is the Dar al-Farooq mosque, which WND has previously reported has a record of turning Somali refugees into jihadists for ISIS and other terror groups.

  • Police chief 'disgusted' by violence at I-94 protest; 21 officers hurt

    About 100 people protesting late Saturday and early Sunday in a sometimes violent response to the police killing of Philando Castile were arrested, either during an hourslong human blockade of Interstate 94 in St. Paul or during a follow-up gathering elsewhere in the city, authorities said. The violence perpetrated by some of the protesters against the police prompted denouncement in the strongest terms by St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and Police Chief Todd Axtell, who called the pelting of officers with rocks, bottles and other items “a disgrace.” Axtell said 21 officers from all law enforcement agencies on the scene...

    There remains much that we don’t know about this — the tragic shooting of Mr. Castile, a school cafeteria worker, during a traffic stop in Minnesota — so the point here is not that a new narrative has been definitively established. But there are key elements of the story that are now credibly contradicted by emerging evidence. Jenn Jacques at Bearing Arms has an excellent summary of them. Readers are familiar with the original narrative from Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, who broadcast heartbreaking, live phone video of Castile after he was shot. The policeman stopped Castile, the driver, for a...

    Police started arresting protesters who shut down parts of Interstate 94 following the death of Philando Castile. Hundreds of protesters marched from the Governor's residence and crossed I-94, blocking off the freeway in both directions. State Patrol officers redirected motor traffic as they cut off I-94 entrances at Dale Street. Protesters are throwing objects at officers and one officer was injured from a thrown firework, according to SPPD. One protester was using a laser sight and pointing it at officers. St. Paul Police Department officers are using glass balls with smoke, not tear gas, on I-94. Police officers on I-94...
  • Confirmed – Philando Castile Was an Armed Robbery Suspect

    The Falcon Heights, Minnesota police shooting of Philando Castile is based around an entirely false narrative. Castile and Ms. Diamond Reynolds (Facebook video uploader) were pulled over by police because Castile matched a BOLO Alert for an armed robbery suspect from four days prior. Unfortunately, the false statements in the video – which have gone viral, and are being pushed by the mainstream media – have created a backlash against police officers.

    An alleged recording of police audio claims to have captured the moments before Philando Castile and his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds were stopped by a Minnesota police officer, questioning Reynolds account of what happened. Reynolds claimed, in the video she took of Castile as he laid dying, that they were pulled over for a broken tail light. However, the audio recording makes no mention of that. “I’m going to stop a car,” the officer is heard saying on the recording obtained by KARE. “I’m going to check IDs. I have reason to pull it over.” The reason, apparently, was the two...
