    The St. Louis couple whose photo was seen around the country during the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 had their record expunged this week, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey filed a request in January to have their convictions wiped and their law licenses restored following a misdemeanor fourth-degree assault charge in 2021. The couple also demanded the return of their guns. Judge Joseph P. Whyte wrote in an order on Wednesday that the purpose of expungement is to give people who had rehabilitated themselves a second chance.

The officer, who was not identified, was seen with his right arm on the suspect’s chest while he lit the cigar with his free hand. Bystanders and the suspect joked with the officer that they also had lighters to offer.

    Whitey Herzog, one of the most innovative managers in Major League Baseball history who brought a popular, entertaining brand of baseball to St. Louis that was named "Whiteyball" after him, died on Monday. A National Baseball Hall of Famer, Herzog was 92. Earlier this month, Herzog attended the Cardinals' home opener at Busch Stadium and received an ovation from the sellout crowd when introduced as one of the team's red-jacket legends. That kind of reception was a constant in St. Louis, where he brought a World Series championship back to the organization, added his keen wit to interviews on television...

    “The office district is empty, with boarded up towers, copper thieves, and failing retail,” reports the Wall Street Journal of Democrat-run St. Louis, Missouri. “[E]ven the Panera outlet shut down. The city is desperately trying to reverse the ‘doom loop.’” Let’s look at the mayoral history of the doom-looping St. Louis, shall we? Oh, look, there hasn’t been a Republican mayor in St. Louis since — not a typo — 1949. For 75 years, the people of St. Louis have voted for More of the Same, so excuse me if I don’t whip out a violin over all this unavoidable...

    A St. Louis television station is under fire after an anchor “mistakenly” described minority homeowners using an “outdated, offensive and racist” term. Television station KMOV issued an apology for using the term on Feb. 26 while previewing a story about racial bias on home appraisals, according to reports. “Tonight, colored homeowners are sounding the alarm when it comes to undervalued home appraisals,” anchor Cory Stark, who is white, said on air. JD Sosnoff, KMOV vice president and general manager, and Stark tried to do damage control over the apparent slip-up as criticism grew over the cringe remark. “It was in...

    St. Louis Park public schools will now let parents decide whether their children should be subjected to curriculum that is LGBTQ-affirming. This change comes after two public interest law firms, True North Legal and First Liberty Institute, sent letters to the school district saying the district’s previous denials of opt-out requests violated the First Amendment and state law. In 2023, six Muslim families requested that St. Louis Park public schools provide notice before LGBTQ-affirming books were discussed in class. These families, who emigrated from Somalia over the last two decades, also requested the ability to opt out their children from...

    ST. LOUIS — City Hall ended a renewed mask mandate for city workers Friday afternoon, just hours after putting it into place. City spokesman Nick Dunne said in a press release that the health department now just "strongly recommends" employees mask up indoors, citing a recent rise in reports of respiratory illnesses in the region. The turnabout followed confusion about the numbers the health department cited to support the mandate, predictable outrage from conservative talk radio, and a lukewarm reception from employees at City Hall, some of whom noted that visitors weren’t required to mask up as well.

    Kim Gardner, the Soros-backed DA, was at the heart of the controversial story involving the McCloskeys, who stood their ground against a mob of violent and threatening BLM rioters at their home. Instead of addressing the mob, which threatened harm to them and their pets, Gardner targeted the McCloskeys for brandishing firearms in self-defense. This action is indicative of her approach as a Marxist Soros-backed DA, prioritizing political targets over actual criminals. Gardner’s erratic and unjust actions created a stir and captured public attention. Consequently, a special counsel was appointed in May to investigate the chaotic disaster Gardner created and...

    Trevor Loudon wrote an article that each and every one of us should read and take note of: Intifada USA? American Radicals Build Ties to “Palestinian” Revolutionaries. I agree completely with Trevor when he says that 2015 could usher in chaos, unrest and violence as we have not seen in our lifetime. The Communists are now joining hands in America with the Radical Islamists, forming an American Intifada – an uprising, resistance, revolt. They are using racism as the building blocks and their hate for America as the glue to forward massive havoc and violence in our streets. The riots...
