  • BREAKING NEWS: Judge dismisses third-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin in death of George Floyd but he will still face charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter

    A judge has dismissed the third-degree murder charge against white cop Derek Chauvin over the killing of black man George Floyd after he knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes as he begged for air and said 'I can't breathe'. Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill granted a motion to dismiss the charge against the former Minneapolis police officer in a ruling Thursday morning. Cahill wrote in a 107-page court ruling that prosecutors did not have probable cause for the charge because there was no evidence Chauvin's actions were 'eminently dangerous' to anyone other than Floyd.

    Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar hit back at Donald Trump saying she loves this country more than the president does after he accused her of entering the US illegally and of hating America, adding his words lead to death threats. 'It’s really also just astonishing to see the way in which he characterizes what love for this country is. I would certainly reckon not only Somalis, but myself, the Governor of Michigan and our Speaker all love this country way more than the president,' Omar said Sunday in an interview with The Week with Joshua Johnson on MSNBC. She added Trump...

    A bizarre investigative piece published by 9NEWS, the NBC affiliate that reportedly hired the unlicensed security guard who fatally shot a Trump supporter during a Denver "Patriot Rally," exposes the news station for contracting multiple unlicensed security guards.. An investigation self-run by the publication found that 30-year-old Matthew Dolloff—who is facing second-degree murder charges for the alleged killing of a conservative demonstrator during dueling Denver rallies on Saturday—is not the only non-credentialed security guard to accompany 9NEWS crews at riots during the past five months. In fact, Dolloff is one of five unlicensed security agents. Under a taunting "Training Matters"...
  • Judge Rules MPD Body Cam Footage Of 2019 George Floyd Arrest Can Be Made Public

    The judge in the George Floyd case is allowing the public to see video of a 2019 incident involving Floyd and Minneapolis police. Judge Peter Cahill said he did not think it would taint a potential jury. Attorney for fired Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane wanted the public to see the video. And the prosecution wanted to prevent it from becoming public. Three body cam videos were released that show different perspectives. All show Floyd with Minneapolis police officers on May 6, 2019. He’s a passenger in an unlicensed stop, and he fails to comply with officers initial requests. “Put...
  • Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Launches National Assault on Voter Laws [Perkins Coie]

    Why has Marc Elias, the Democratic National Committee’s election lawyer, filed more than 50 lawsuits around the country challenging state election laws in advance of next month’s presidential election? Elias says he’s fighting against “voter suppression.” But most of the state laws he’s challenging have been in place for years — including when he was the legal adviser to the John Kerry and Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns. Why is Elias suddenly asking courts to overrule state election laws and count ballots that come in after Election Day, or force states to have unattended ballot collection boxes? Someone who knows Elias...
  • Ilhan Omar Funnels 70 Percent of Campaign Expenditures to Husband’s Company

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) funneled an additional $1.1 million to her husband's company, bringing her total payments to the firm to $2.7 million for the election cycle, new filings show. Omar's campaign filings, released Thursday, show that she sent $1.1 million more to the E Street Group, a political consulting firm owned by her husband, Tim Mynett. The payments account for nearly 70 percent of the $1.6 million Omar's campaign has disbursed between July 23 and the end of September. They have helped cover advertisements, consulting, travel expenses, and production costs.

    Yesterday, the Minnesota Senate’s Transportation and Public Safety Committee released its report on this summer’s riots in Minneapolis. The Star Tribune report on this was headlined: ‘Minnesota Senate GOP report blames Gov. Tim Walz, Mayor Jacob Frey for slow riot response‘. The sub-header read: ‘Democratic leaders reject findings, call document fodder for election’, which is curious, because previously both Governor Walz and Mayor Frey had said that the other was to blame.

    Minnesota GOP Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan has accused Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison of abusing his power and threatened to file “a cease-and-desist order” against his office. On Tuesday night, Felton Farms in Northfield, Minnesota, held a private MAGA rally with Eric Trump, where congressional candidate Tyler Kistner and Carnahan also made appearances. Carnahan, who accused Ellison of “using his office to play politics” and “threatening” the farm venue, announced that the Republican Party of Minnesota would be filing a cease-and-desist order against Ellison’s office.

    wo confirmed cases of coronavirus were traced to campaign events for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Minnesota. Though the former vice president gives speeches in crowdless rooms and hosts socially distanced events, one Minnesotan contracted the virus at a Biden event in Duluth on Sept. 18, according to state health officials. Another who was diagnosed with the virus said they attended a Biden campaign event outside of Minneapolis on Sept. 22. Despite having two coronavirus cases linked to his own events, Biden—whose campaign stopped hosting rallies in June to slow the spread of the coronavirus—kicked off a week of...

    “We have never seen anything like this.” “I’m scared to even drive after dark.” “I don’t feel safe walking around my neighborhood.” “Everybody feels the same way. We all want to move.” That’s just some of the feedback the Minneapolis City Council received during an Oct. 8 meeting of the Public Health and Safety Committee. More than 60 residents signed up to speak their minds at the two-hour virtual meeting, grilling council members on their “irresponsible rhetoric” and failure to adequately staff the Minneapolis Police Department. “We should all know as adults that words such as ‘defund,’ ‘dismantle,’ and ‘abolish’...

Safir said, “It’s the Democratic cities who have basically ceded their cities to what got called ‘peaceful protesters’ but are really people who are vandals and looters, and in some cases, not only assault people but are murderers.” Safir added, “You look at Seattle, you look at Minneapolis, you look at Chicago, and places like that where basically they have...

    The city of Minneapolis has a violence problem, and its leaders are looking for a way to control crime in the most humanized way possible. The latest incident took place Friday night into Saturday morning, when three people were shot downtown, KARE reported. “It hurts. I wish that I could find ways to help everybody feel more comfortable and more safe,” Councilman Steve Fletcher said. Fletcher’s district, Downtown West, is the part of the city where the shooting happened. Statistics from the Minneapolis Police Department show that in the past year alone, violent crimes rose by 20 percent, leaving many...

On the other hand, Biden has to SWEEP almost all of the remaining states. ... Trump is a candidate who the pollsters are finding it increasingly difficult to poll, and that is why...
