A Minnesota city is reconsidering its decision to no longer say the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of city council meetings after facing major backlash. The St. Louis Park City Council unanimously voted on June 17 to amend the procedure rules so that the pledge would no longer be said before the start of every session in an effort to serve a more “diverse community.” “We concluded that in order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community we’re going to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance before every meeting,” Council Member Tim Brausen said ahead of the vote.

If the pledge of allegiance makes you uncomfortable, you don't belong here - period. Question of being part of the community simply does nor arise. Mogadishu is a better place for you!

Especially, new immigrants (only the legal ones!) should be pledging their allegiance to our flag, and to the Republic, for which it stands, One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Newcomers should take it as a commitment, a goal to strive for.

This is the height of hubris. This jerkwater suburb doubtlessly receives significant funding from the United States to pay for/subsidize everything from street and sewer maintenance to schools and free lunches. They should have all such funding cut off in the name of "E pluribus unum". Perhaps they'll have the guts to renounce their Constitutional rights, too. The sad part it is Americans who elect these fools to office, time and again, from local to national levels. Minnesota, it seems, is trying to jump ahead of California these days in the national mad dash to lunacy.

Council Member Timmy has mastered the Orwellian progressive vocabulary- diverse, welcoming, tolerant. Hopefully the backlash from the citizenry is sufficiently strong to wash Timmy from office. From his official bio: "Brausen works vigorously on issues of affordable housing, environmental sustainability, racial equity and community building."

Do the Residents of St. Louis Park City outnumber those from Somalia: They should be at every meeting, saying the Pledge and demanding that the FLAG of THIS COUNTRY is front and center. Those who don't feel comfortable can leave and go back to the flag of THEIR country. Enough of this foolishness!

A military jury has found Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher not guilty on almost all counts, including the killing of a wounded ISIS fighter.He was only found guilty on one count related to taking a photo of the ISIS fighter’s corpse, which carries a maximum sentence of four months, sources told Breitbart News. As Gallagher has served nine months in pre-trial confinement, it is likely he will not serve any time in jail at all, sources said. There were five enlisted Marines and two sailors on the jury, including one Navy SEAL. The verdict was publicly announced by former New York Police Department Commissioner Bernie Kerik,

BizPac Review published reports on Monday that Nike developed a Betsy Ross-themed shoe just in time to celebrate Independence Day, then yanked it from production. Shortly after, sponsored activist Colin Kaepernick reportedly complained that he found the imagery depicted on the clothing to be offensive. As happens all too often in our softened society, Nike immediately recalled the shoe and drew the ire of patriots like Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who called the decision “pathetic” and declared that she will no longer be buying Nike sneakers for her family.

It was 20 summers ago that John F. Kennedy Jr.‘s plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean amid thick fog — killing him and his two passengers, wife Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and her sister, Lauren Bessette, on their way to a Kennedy family wedding. Three lives, ended. And America’s most famous political family dealt another fatal blow. Now historian Steven M. Gillon has written the biography America’s Reluctant Prince, excerpted in this week’s PEOPLE and in bookstores July 9, which offers the first in-depth examination of John’s life. It reveals a man far more complicated than he might have seemed.

I’d urge everyone to read my colleague Jim Geraghty’s post on the thuggery this weekend in Portland. It was appalling to watch masked Antifa thugs attack Andy Ngo, and it was also appalling that the police weren’t immediately present to arrest his attackers. Antifa’s propensity to violence is well known, and while I’d love to hear a sympathetic explanation for the absence of police, the lack of response looks a lot like a dereliction of duty. There is, however, a simple and well-known legal reform that will go a long way towards deterring Antifa violence — even when police aren’t close by, but iPhones are. It’s called an anti-masking law.

The scene at New York City's Stonewall Inn on Saturday, as reported by multiple witnesses on social media, showed how long-simmering tensions between transgender women of color and white gay men have boiled over during the celebration of World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. The unidentified woman wanted to address the crowd inside the Greenwich Village gay bar where patrons fought back against police harassment 50 years ago, birthing the LGBTQ movement. She arrived unannounced and disrupted a drag show, drawing an unfriendly response at first.

Of course, it’s a summer holiday week. So, this good news somehow slipped by most media critics of this president. But the latest government figures just showed that in April the United States produced a new record amount of oil per day — a stunning 12.16 million barrels of oil every 24 hours. [Snip] Of more significance, the oil production jump makes the United States the world’s largest producer of oil, ahead of the usual slippery suspects like Saudi Arabia and Russia. How’s that for energy independence? And how can presidential debaters turn that into a negative?

Federal agents in Eagle Pass, Texas, have known about the reptile for several years, but say they have seen it more often in recent months at a section of the river where most migrants illegally cross in the region.
