MINNEAPOLIS - Two bars in Minneapolis will once again close their doors citing ongoing violence in Minneapolis, the owners announced on Saturday. According to The After Midnight Group, which owns the bars, Cowboy Jack's in downtown Minneapolis and Cowboy Slim's in Uptown will both close due to "ongoing neighborhood violence, vandalism and civil unrest" including the shooting in Uptown last weekend that left 11 people hurt and one dead, not far from Cowboy Slim's. The closure announcement for Cowboy Jack's comes a day after the bar was identified by the Minnesota Department of Health as a COVID-19 cluster. The statement from

More and more people and businesses will be leaving Minneapolis, never to return. The left has taken over the government and the mayor and city council have handed the city over to the BLM thugs and antifa thugs. Get while the getting is good.

Starnsville. I feel like I'm living Part III of Atlas Shrugged. However, the big difference between the novel and real life is we elected Hank Reardon for President.

I get what the authorities are trying to do. They know if they respond appropriately to this Antifa/anarchist violence right now, it'll only beget more violence and more media and public condemnation. So, they're waiting it all out, hoping that it will all blow over and peter out once the "silly season" ends (typically July and August). But it's only June and this has been ongoing since May (not even IN the silly season yet)! Will it ever end? They know there is a fine line between no response and action-to-put-an-end-to-this. But where/when is it? It's sad to watch the dissolution of one's country in real time.

Looting costs in America’s 20 largest metropolitan areas exceeded $400 million from the first weekend of rioting, according to a new report from the Anderson Economic Group. “This includes property damage, lost inventory, cleanup and reconstruction costs, and closure-related lost wages,” the report stated. “[The study] did not assign any costs to peaceful protests or demonstrations.” The report, published June 5, used “news publications to identify where looting occurred…and estimate the total costs of looting between May 29 and June 3.” The report authors say this value could be severely underestimated. “Our estimates are based on observed patterns of looting

Quintez Brown took to the streets in Kentucky to join many Americans in protesting against racial injustice after the death of George Floyd, a Black man in police custody last month.

"The protests showed the importance of having someone in a political office who can actually advocate for us and make a change," Brown said, adding it was his first time working on a political campaign.

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden is under pressure to pick a Black woman as his vice presidential running mate. But polls suggest the most popular prospect among Black Democrats is white. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., are widely seen by Democratic officials and activists close to the process as front-runners, though other candidates remain in the mix and a Biden aide told NBC News that "the process is dynamic and ongoing and no final decision has been made." The two senators and former Biden presidential rivals have reached an advanced vetting stage that suggests they are formidable contenders

NEW YORK — Microsoft said Friday it is permanently closing nearly all of its physical stores around the world. Like other retailers, the software and computing giant had to temporarily close all of its stores in late March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Microsoft has 83 stores, including 72 stores in the U.S., where it showcases and sells laptops and other hardware. The company says it will "reimagine" spaces that serve all customers, including operating Microsoft Experience Centers in London, NYC, Sydney, and Redmond campus locations.

Republicans are slamming Joe Biden after the presumptive Democratic nominee made a verbal gaffe during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania and said 120 million people had died from the novel coronavirus. “People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” Biden said Thursday. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.” (Snip) President Trump’s reelection campaign team went after Biden even harder – calling him “very confused” and dredging up one of Biden’s past gaffes when he said that 150 million Americans had died from gun violence since 2007.“ Joe Biden

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could make millions for giving speeches after reportedly signing with an elite agency that represents the Obamas and the Clintons. According to reports, the couple have joined the Harry Walker Agency – which also counts the Obamas, Clintons, Serena and Venus Williams, and TV legend Oprah Winfrey as clients – in their first career move since moving to Hollywood. They will hold “moderated discussions” and give the keynote speeches to trade associations, businesses and community forums, the LA Times reports. The talks will also focus on racial justice, gender equality, the environment and mental health.  Correction*

An interesting outcome and juxtaposition amid the new policing approach advanced by the Minneapolis City Council. After voting to remove police from the community, the same city council now approve hiring private security for themselves at a current rate of $4,500 per day.

What’s a CNN host to do when confronted with a guest who doesn’t accept The Narrative? In the case of Don Lemon interviewing former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, the answer is: tell him to “keep it down,” refuse to listen to what he is saying, and then abruptly cut him off. It’s not as if they are interested in anything that doesn’t support The Narrative. Much less explodes it with data on cops being killed. Unintentional comedy lasting 2 awkward, hilarious minutes.

When he was running the U.S. Senate in 2012, Harry Reid asserted, without presenting evidence, that an anonymous source had told him that Republican nominee Mitt Romney was a tax cheat. “So, the word is out that he has not paid any taxes for 10 years,” the majority leader declared from the Senate floor. “Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t.” It was a classless move from a classless politician. As it turned out, his comment didn’t bear any relation to reality. In reality, it turned out that Romney paid millions of dollars in taxes each year and gave a significant amount to charity.
