Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz ordered all National Guard troops activated for the first time in the state’s history Saturday, vowing to put an end to the “wanton destruction” that he pinned on outside forces — from drug cartels to white supremacists. But President Trump seemed to point to leftist agitators and poor leadership for the unrest in Minnesota following the death of George Floyd. “It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” Trump tweeted Saturday. Walz told reporters in a pre-dawn briefing: “The absolute chaos — this is not grieving, and this is not making a statement [about an injustice] that we fully acknowledge

Seriously? The gov is saying the people we've all seen on videos are white supremist?

I won't even bother - no doubt no ammo, orders to stand there and look like you could do something, even if by orders and lack of live ammo, you can't.

Just a reality check for Tim: these rioters DO share Dem "values" and they have the same respect for life that Dems are required to have which is NO respect.......NONE at all! When you pander to and coddle the Godless this is exactly what you should expect. May this be a real wakeup call to Minnesota voters; I hope they learn a lesson from what is being allowed to happen in their state. Their government at both the state and local level is a monumental failure. They must stand up and demand better.

Methinks there a lot of people in Minnesota who DON"T live in M/St Paul who can differentiate between protestors and arsonists, who will be voting Trump.

Well they could have 100,000 National Guardsmen and women on the line, but without effective leadership and rules of engagement they will not do any good. You can see that the liberal Democrat leadership has been very bad at the State and City levels, as those political leaders ordered the police to retreat out of the riot hit area and effectively abandoned their police precinct building, hundreds of businesses, and the general public safety to the rioters, who are also those political leaders identity based voters, who those politicians need to further their political careers. Instead those liberal Democrat elected officials are falsely casting false blame for their incompetent leadership on out of the area mystical “White Supremacists” that nobody there has seen or identified, thus insinuating to the low information crowd that the leaders of the riots were Trump supporters, along with Mexican drug cartels who are known to transport and sell illicit narcotics in the area, in reality to the extent that if they are in the area, those cartel members who are of foreign origin, always try to stay hidden to sell their illicit drugs and have no interest in “outing” themselves by participating in unlawful riots.

Identity politics in action; the rioters and arsonists are not interested in justice. Their gang (they call 'em communities) was dissed, and that calls for retaliation. You can point out all the studies you want that say cops are LESS likely to use force against black guys (as a Harvard study found), it will not take. The gang mentality is inside their head and that is where it will stay.

Gee, and here I thought that tearing down all those (Democrat) Confederate statues was supposed to make blacks’ lives better. That didn’t work so now we have this. I want one of these “protestors” to explain to me how destroying someone else’s property makes their own life better. Sure, they get an adrenalin rush but when they wake up tomorrow morning their lives are going to be just as miserable. The only thing they are really doing is reinforcing existing stereotypes about their “community”. Yeah. That’ll help.

It begins with ‘f’ and it ends with ‘you.’ I will not remain silent while this man cynically tries to turn this incredibly painful moment into one for his own political gain.” Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor, is the city’s first black female mayor.

Medicare recipients will be able to get prescription plans that limit copays for insulin, a potential savings of hundreds of dollars, the White House announced Tuesday in a pivot to pocketbook issues that could influence November's election. The new benefit — to be formally unveiled at a Rose Garden event Tuesday afternoon — is being touted as a major accomplishment by Trump administration officials eager to change the subject from the grim drumbeat of coronavirus pandemic news. Older adults who pick a drug plan offering the new insulin benefit would pay a maximum of $35 a month starting next year, a savings estimated at $446 annually.

A Memorial Day rally calling for an end to the Illinois stay-at-home order was broken up early by Chicago Police. Organizers on Monday gathered at Buckingham Fountain, calling the order to fight the coronavirus pandemic unconstitutional and demanding a reopening. Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago Police both said they respect First Amendment rights, but the rally posed a public health risk. The mayor tweeted “Regarding today’s large unpermitted gathering at Millennium Park: while we respect 1st amendment rights, this gathering posed an unacceptable health risk and was dispersed. No matter where in the city you live, no one is exempt from @GovPritzker’s stay-at-home order.”

A big construction project at Gov. JB Pritzker’s Wisconsin horse farm has some questioning whether the governor is honoring the spirit of his own stay-at-home order. FOX 32 News watched Thursday as construction workers from Illinois crossed the border to work on the governor’s farm. Pritzker, though, says there is no double standard because construction workers are exempt. FOX 32 wandered over the Wisconsin border into Kenosha County and found more than 20 construction workers -- nearly all from Illinois -- helping build a massive new home and several outbuildings on Pritzker's horse farm

As protests and unrest continued in Minneapolis following the killing of George Floyd, people are questioning the identity of a man filmed smashing windows. Footage emerged of the white man, dressed all in black, and in gloves and boots, calmly smashing the windows of an auto parts store with a large hammer.

Democratic and Republican officials on Sunday took aim at groups like Antifa and Boogaloo as well as demonstrators from out of town as responsible for violent episodes at protests in major cities across the country. President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.
