    A Minnesota school district will allow parents to withdraw their children from LGBTQ lessons after six Somali Muslim families threatened to sue when books discussing gender identity where introduced to their elementary school classroom. St. Louis Park Public Schools granted the opt-out requests in January and February after parents complained at a school board meeting in October there was not a process in place for them to exempt their students from reading LGBTQ material. Several Somali mothers spoke at a school board meeting on October 24 claiming books that are against their religious beliefs were introduced to the children without...

    Professor Cornel West appeared on CNN International this afternoon to give his take on Ferguson, and said right at the outset, “Ferguson signifies the end of the age of Obama. It’s a very sad end. We began with tremendous hope and we end with great despair.” He went on to cite a “Jim Crow criminal justice system” that doesn’t seek justice for young black and brown people, and said adamantly there is both a race and a class war going on against that group in America right now. CNNI anchor Hala Gorani asked West why he’s “so harsh” on the

    Reacting to President Obama's use of the n-word on Marc Maron's podcast, (Princeton / Harvard Professor) Cornel West called him the first "niggerized" president in an appearance on CNN. West criticized Obama as "a person who is afraid and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy." "Too many black people are niggerized," West said Monday on CNN. "I would say the first black president has become the first niggerized black president." "A niggerized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy...

    Activist Cornel West says he was disappointed in President Obama's response to this week's shootings in of black men by police in Minnesota and Louisiana. "I thought it was weak," West said, according to The Washington Post. "He's always got to explain to white America how black people are feeling. Black people don't feel as if we're being treated unequally — it's a fact that we're being treated unequally. He sort of always has to serve in this translating role. That's how he rolls, but that's not how I roll." West said while Obama called Thursday's attacks on Dallas police...

    A special education teacher and dance team coach faces criminal sexual conduct charges after she allegedly had sex with one of her students and bought alcohol for minors. Ann Margaret Bacon, 24, told cops she had sex five times with an 18-year-old student in a hotel room in Vadnais Heights, Minnesota, according to the criminal complaint. She was charged on Monday in Ramsey County District Court with felony third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Bacon soon resigned from her position at Tartan High School, located in Oakdale, the principal of the school announced in a statement on Tuesday. Although the student was...

    The Minnesota-based Internet provider U.S. Internet Corp. has a business unit called Securence, which specializes in providing filtered, secure email services to businesses, educational institutions and government agencies worldwide. But until it was notified last week, U.S. Internet was publishing more than a decade’s worth of its internal email — and that of thousands of Securence clients — in plain text out on the Internet and just a click away for anyone with a Web browser. Headquartered in Minnetonka, Minn., U.S. Internet is a regional ISP that provides fiber and wireless Internet service. The ISP’s Securence division bills itself “a...

    The headline is regarded as far worthier of condemnation than the fact that thousands in one city repeatedly celebrated the indiscriminate massacre and rape of men, women, and children.. Last Friday, The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed titled “Welcome to Dearborn, America’s Jihad Capital,” by Middle East expert Steven Stalinsky. While the usual corners of the political left, including President Biden himself, excoriated the article, no one has proven it to contain a single incorrect fact. Stalinsky outlined how, in the wake of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack in Israel, the Detroit suburb erupted in pro-Hamas protests. At these,...

    El Salvadorian voters will likely re-elect their current president Nayib Bukele but not before he finishes up a trite internet spat with Squad member Ilhan Omar. Bukele, who affectionately calls himself the 'world's coolest dictator,' traded barbs with the progressive legislator last week after she posted on X about 'threats to democracy' in El Salvador. The Central American leader, 42, has spent his time in power cleaning up crime in his country and ensuring that the famously high murder rate plummeted by locking up tens of thousands of violent gang members.

Cori Bush (D-MO) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) were the only two votes against a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday that would ban Palestinians who joined in the Hamas terror attack on Israel on October 7 from entering the U.S. The Jewish Insider reported: Reps. Cori Bush (D-MO) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) broke with the rest of the House on Wednesday evening to vote against a bill barring participants in the Oct. 7 attack on Israel from entering the United States.

Ashlee Sherrill, public information officer for the St. Paul Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), did not provide details or indicate who, or if anyone, was targeted but confirmed the investigation is moving forward as an “arson investigation.” John Hinderaker, president of the Center of the American Experiment (CAE), said based on the location of the fires in the building, it appears that someone targeted conservative groups. “The fires were obviously set by someone.

    The deputy minister of foreign affairs of Somaliland called Omar's recent comments "lacking in common decency." Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a progressive member of the so-called “Squad” and a Mogadishu native, is facing calls for her resignation after, critics say, she promised to do all she could to prevent a Somaliland deal with Ethiopia over access to the sea. “The language she employed was regrettably unbecoming of both the office she holds and the constituents she represents,” wrote Rhoda Elmi, deputy foreign affairs minister of Somaliland, which declared its independence from Somalia in 1991 but which most most countries, including...

    Somalian refugee Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) gave a speech to the Somali community in Minnesota on Saturday that has gone viral thanks to English translation subtitles. The translations have Omar saying she and her fellow Somalis are Somali first and Muslim second–with no mention of being American. Omar also said she represents Somalia in Congress and told the audience that they control the U.S. government’s Somalia policy. Outraged Americans called for Omar’s expulsion from the House of Representatives. Reporting on the speech is sketchy as to the location, however a banner can be seen in the video with a partial...

    "According to The Hill, the motion reads that, “it is in the national interests of the United States to combat anti-Semitism at home and abroad. With an unfortunate rise in anti-Semitism and attempts to delegitimize Israel, the United States House of Representatives must emphasize the importance of combating anti-Semitism and reject all movements that deny Israel’s right to exist."..... The House of Representatives passed a motion Wednesday afternoon condemning anti-Semitism, which was added to a bill ending U.S. military aid for Saudi Arabia’s ongoing war in Yemen. This vote comes only days after Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar faced accusations...

    An insurance company that covered several businesses destroyed during the George Floyd riots in Minneapolis is suing the city for negligence. “[George] Floyd’s death sparked several days of protests and civil unrest, which resulted in damage to numerous businesses in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, including damage to the insureds’ businesses,” the lawsuit (pdf) states. The Illinois Casualty Company (ICC) paid insurance claims of over $5.6 million in damages “caused by the civil unrest,” according to the lawsuit. The complaint cites an independent report from Hillard Heintze (HH), a safety and security consulting firm. The city contracted with the firm in...

    Like other “sanctuary cities,” New York has learned that being a refuge for illegal immigrants is a bad thing if they actually show up. So New York is buying them airplane tickets to go elsewhere. My colleague Bill Glahn reports: The Minneapolis Star Tribune had a headline yesterday noting that Minnesota is among the top states to which New York City is redirecting its excess illegal immigrant arrivals. The Star Tribune writes, Minnesota has emerged as a top destination for migrants accepting free plane tickets to leave New York City, as homeless shelters there strain to house a record surge...
