The mayor of Minneapolis told individuals protesting that their anger is “understandable” and “right" but urged them to make sure they are wearing masks and practicing social distancing during their demonstrations. “The City encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey’s office wrote in a statement addressed to individuals who took to the streets following the death of George Floyd while in police custody. “The City has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week.”

Mr. Mayor Bozo Clown these are no longer protesters these people are rioters who need gas masks if anything while looting and burning. Social distancing is running from the cops with big screen TVs while drinking booze. What an idiot.

I felt sure this was a satire piece from The Onion or the Babylon Bee, but no, it’s a real report. And in other news, apparently some are swooning over the mayor’s good looks and comparing him to Justin Trudeau. Good grief! Could this get any weirder?

Are you freak'n kidding me? I had to double check that this wasn't from "The Babylon Bee" or "The Onion." Nothing like a good Democrat leader to focus on what is really important in a time of crisis, looking out for the "safety" of looter's and pillager's. They can't afford to lose any of their voting base.

This hapless dolt needs to be forcibly removed from his office and Minneapolis needs to start having a clue about who they elect. Shuts the police down, politely invites these organized thugs to burn his city down, then frets about masks and ‘social distancing’ like these animals are going to stand 6 feet apart. I don’t know how he could be any dumber.

The Antifa group who are controlling these riots are just taunting the police in order to get them to shoot someone so they can continue their lies. The dead will be collateral damage in this war.

Has anyone ever observed a weaker, and more ignorant person than Jacob Frey?. The man is a doormat, shoe marks all over his face. Frey believes in violence and rioting. The only thing Frey would ever stand against would be conservatives or church services. Frankly, I no longer care a whit about Minnesota.

Let us know when you're done burning and looting so I can tell our cops it's safe to come out again...I mean if you haven't burned down all their police stations."

The city provided masks to the protestors. UNBELIEVABLE! The good mayor of Minneapolis appears to have his priorities wrong. He should know better. What a fool. The people of Minneapolis will be fools if they ever re-elect this cretin. Its not only masks and social distancing, did Minnesota enact any restrictions on the size of social gatherings? On the positive side, this might be the death knell for all the CV19 restrictions. They will enforce them on Conservative or right wing rallies, but not for left wing rallies? Really? They can't have it both ways.

What this idiot leftist liberal Democrat Mayor was actually saying was be sure and wear a face mask when you go about burning down and looting all the grocery stores and other critical businesses that served your community so that you don’t pass on the COVID-19 virus to other rioters. Of course that is in keeping with that Mayor’s expressed thought that the human life of the rioters is a higher priority with him then business buildings and property. Remember those rioters are just about all members of a liberal Democrat identity based constituency those votes keep that Mayor in office.

As states across the country begin the process of reopening, Americans continue to battle over the methods governors and local authorities have used to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, many states and localities have set up arbitrary and, in many cases, absurd rules that do little more than aggravate citizens and almost nothing to stop the spread of the virus. For instance, some Americans have been pulled over and ticketed for merely driving, hardly an activity that is likely to spread disease. One Pennsylvania woman received a $200 ticket for violating Gov. Tom Wolf’s statewide stay-at-home order when she said she had merely gone on a drive to relieve her quarantine restlessness,

Maine and Nebraska are the only two states in the country that split their Electoral College votes by congressional district while also rewarding the statewide victor, giving Democrats extra opportunities to pick up votes in otherwise Republican strongholds. And with the fall fight between President Trump and Joe Biden set to be a tight battle for the White House, every vote will matter on Nov. 3.

Minneapolis City Council members are expected to hold an emergency meeting Friday to vote on some of the first changes to the city’s police department following the death of George Floyd, with some of the council’s members vowing to “dismantle” the police department, according to the Star Tribune. The council is working with the state’s Department of Human Rights on a stipulated restraining order that would require some immediate changes to the police department. The order would also set up a timeline for an investigation into whether the police department participated in racial discrimination over the last 10 years.

A total of 57 officers resigned from the emergency team in solidarity with the two suspended cops, who pushed Martin Gugino, causing him to stumble backward and crack his head on the ground, WGRZ reported. “Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” said John Evans, president of the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association.(Snip)Gugino, an activist who is well known in Buffalo, was listed in serious but stable condition.

Mr. President, you’ve taken step one: Declaring Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. That was a brilliant move. Now it’s time for step number two: Cut the head off the snake. We’ve got to move to aggressively cut off the funding of domestic terrorism. Those who provide funding are terrorists themselves. Who is providing the funding? There are many suspects. Suspect number one is globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation. It starts there. Is Soros guilty? That’s way above my pay grade. That’s why we need a global investigation. And indictments and a trial.

Chicago—It was bad before and it’s even worse now. Food deserts in some South Side communities have even fewer choices for groceries after the weekend’s violence. CBS 2’s Marissa Parra has more from Bronzeville with a look at how it’s impacting the community. For neighbors, the Jewel-Osco on 75th is the grocery store. But no longer.(Snip) On Sunday night, it was ravaged by looters, as you can see by the aftermath captured in video from the next day, leaving neighbors frustrated. “It’s not what you do. It’s how do you do it,” Wright said. “What did we accomplish,

The Minneapolis mayor is asking for federal help cleaning up and rebuilding his city after rioters caused at least $55 million worth of damage through looting, burning, and defacing public and private property. That cost estimate is likely to increase in the coming days as government officials continue to tally the damage done in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Mayor Jacob Frey said according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and the state’s congressional delegation are also pushing the Trump administration and Congress for funding. On Tuesday, city officials released an initial estimate of $55 million in damage done to at least 220 buildings.

Writing at the Washington Post, author Alyssa Rosenberg has a unique solution for the problems with our policing: Cancel all the cop shows on television. She argues we need to do that because there’s a “reactionary streak” behind the “surface liberalism” in these shows. For a century, Hollywood has been collaborating with police departments, telling stories that whitewash police shootings and valorizing an action-hero style of policing over the harder, less dramatic work of building relationships with the communities cops are meant to serve and protect. There’s a reason for that beyond a reactionary streak hiding below the industry’s surface

The death of George Floyd after an interaction with the Minneapolis Police Department has rocked the world and while everyone reading this believes that an officer that put his knee in the back of Floyd’s neck for close to nine minutes was the cause of death, the facts and evidence are anything but that. Now, before you quickly go the typical “you are justifying the murder” of Mr. Floyd, go ahead and take a step back. Our job here is to give you the facts and whether you want to believe it or not, many of the facts are either not reported or not yet known and that should be concerning to

A widely read study claiming the use of the antimalarial hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus leads to an increased risk of death has been retracted, the study’s publisher said Thursday. The Lancet, the medical journal that published the original study in late May, said in a statement that they “can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources,” and “due to this unfortunate development, the authors request that the paper be retracted.” “We all entered this collaboration to contribute in good faith and at a time of great need during the COVID-19 pandemic,” they said. “We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership
