    Democratic Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal retweeted a Holocuast-themed tweet on Thursday in reference to Missouri's Jewish Republican Gov. Eric Greitens. Chappelle-Nadal, the state lawmaker who recently wrote she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated, shared a tweet that said, "Greitens should know where the Trump Train goes. At the end of the line is this place!" The tweet included a picture showing the gates of a Nazi concentration camp. (TWEET-AT-LINK) The tweet is no longer on Chappelle-Nadal's Twitter page. The picture of the gate of the camp includes the sign with the words, "Arbeit Macht Frei," translated to...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.— A Missouri lawmaker who temporarily posted a Facebook comment expressing hope that President Donald Trump would be assassinated could face an effort to remove her from office. Gov. Eric Greitens and Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, both Republicans, said on Friday that state senators should oust Democratic Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal, who has continued to reject calls for her resignation. "If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should," Greitens said in a written statement....

    Updated 2:20 p.m. Aug. 18 with lieutenant governor calling for expulsion — Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson said Friday the state Senate should expel Maria Chappelle-Nadal due to her Facebook comment in which she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated. Parson and other top Missouri Republicans and Democrats, from Washington, D.C., to Jefferson City, already have called for Chapelle-Nadal to step down. The University City Democrat has so far resisted numerous bipartisan calls for her resignation after the comment was posted and later deleted Thursday. Parson went a step further Friday, saying that if she doesn't resign by the...

    The Secret Service is now looking into threats that a Democratic state senator from Missouri posted on Facebook. State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal was responding to a comment, saying she hopes President Trump gets assassinated. She has since deleted her Facebook comment. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) Chappelle-Nadal told the Kansas City Star she made the comments “out of frustration with the 'trauma and despair'” caused by Trump's remarks after the violent clashes in Charlottesville. “The way I responded this morning was wrong,” she added. “I’m frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He’s causing hate."...

    The NAACP has responded to Missouri's recent legislation on discrimination by issuing a travel warning for the state. The advisory calls for travelers to utilize "extreme caution" in the state due to the likelihood of "discrimination and harassment," CBS News reported Tuesday. Rod Chapel Jr., president of the state's NAACP chapter, has described Republican Governor Eric Greitens' recent legislation as "the Jim Crow bill," a reference to the segregation tactics of the South. The state's legislation will make lawsuits alleging discrimination much more difficult to win, as victims will now have to present proof that discrimination was the main reason...

    (snip) The DOJ report, though, needs to be discussed right here. Attorney General Eric Holder of the Department of Justice first arrived in Ferguson eleven days after the shooting. He spoke with Michael Brown’s mother. He talked of his own experiences with prejudice. He stated publicly that his pledge included, as opposed to simple justice, “robust action,” and he stated that “long after the events of August 9 have receded from the headlines, the Justice Department will continue to stand with this community.” The things he said and did added up to a tacit confirmation of the public fear that...

    Frick’s Quality Meats will embark on a $8 million expansion in Washington, resulting in the creation of 40 new jobs for the community.

    The 2015 protests that rocked the University of Missouri campus and eventually led to the ouster of the school’s president “has been a disaster for the university.” That’s the conclusion of the NY Times which published a story yesterday on declining enrollment at Mizzou. Before the protests, the university, fondly known as Mizzou, was experiencing steady growth and building new dormitories. Now, with budget cuts due to lost tuition and a decline in state funding, the university is temporarily closing seven dormitories and cutting more than 400 positions, including those of some nontenured faculty members, through layoffs and by leaving...

    Street workers were gathered at the parking space, a tipoff that something was amiss. That's when Westerberg, 25, found the vehicle in the gaping hole — about 20 feet (6 meters) deep and 8 to 10 feet (2.5 to 3 meters) across — that took up the entire southbound lane of the street, next to a vacant building expected to feature apartments, office space and retail. No injuries were reported.

    A City Council committee on Wednesday endorsed a property tax break for a fast-growing insurance company to support the addition of 1,000 new jobs to downtown Kansas City. The full Council votes Thursday on the proposal for Spring Venture Group, which hopes to move next year from its Crown Center offices into a largely vacant office building on West 12th Street. “It’s very exciting. It’s a big job creator,” attorney Evan Fitts, representing Spring Venture, told the council’s planning, zoning and economic development committee. Spring Venture Group has not yet signed a lease for the building at 120 W. 12th...

    Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is concerned that an ordinance is going to turn St. Louis into an “abortion sanctuary city.” The law, proposed by the city, states that “an employer, labor union, or employment agency may NOT discriminate on the basis of reproductive health decisions or pregnancy status, nor may it advertise a preference.” In other words, in order to protect “reproductive rights,” institutions may be forced to hire abortion activists and rent to pro-abortion groups. Our Lady’s Inn, a Catholic non-profit maternity home, filed a lawsuit against the ordinance, along with the Elementary Schools of the Archdiocese of St....
