    "That's the end to Minnesota Nice!" my Norwegian husband exploded upon hearing Minnesota Governor Walz banished 25,000 Trump supporters to a cold field in Rochester, MN. But nothing stops hardy Minnesotans from going out to meet their beloved President and nothing stops President Trump from greeting his people. As a beautiful gold-and-magenta Minnesota sunset kissed the sky, the Beast whisked President Trump straight from Airforce One to the non-dictator-sanctioned, "illegal" crowd of 25,000 banished from the approved rally area. And we loved him for it. "He's always a class act," I told Michael. President Trump took his time too. In...

    You don’t parole a child molester to an in-home daycare. You don’t parole an addict to a drug house. And you don’t parole a cop killer to the home of a Black Lives Matter activist. Even if it is in a toney suburb in a quarter-million-dollar house. But that is exactly what the state of New York has done with Black Panther Anthony Bottom, who ambushed and executed two New York City police officers in 1971. Turned loose when nobody was looking, the Black Liberation Army soldier was paroled to Rochester, without any notice to either the public or any...
