Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has asked President Trump for a federal disaster declaration in his state due to “extensive fire damage” and other destruction in the unrest that followed George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody on Memorial Day. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives,” Walz said in a statement Thursday. “Together, we will rebuild.” He also appealed to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for financial assistance to help cover the cost of debris removal, emergency measures

This is what a police department is for. Oh, that's right, you defunded them. Oh well, too bad, find the money within your state and next time consider calling law enforcement to break up the riots.

I don't get it. . .how can Waltz allow (encourage?) the destruction to occur, then ask the feds (you and me $$$) to pay for it??? Political posturing to blame Trump should Trump deny the request, although the reason for the request is the direct result of his bad decisions, or lack thereof, of Waltz's abysmal failure to govern, according to Waltz's oath of office? Does Watlz truly care? Is this a contrived situation to entrap President Trump and screw us law abiding, regular folk??? Now pleading compassion and begging monetary relief for those Minnesotans for whom he gave not one rat's behind during the devastation when he did nothing, should the rest of Americans pay for it??? Will Minnesotans wake up and smell the poo that has been left them by their state government and finally get the screaming message?

Since this was not a natural disaster but was caused by the incompetence of the Mayor and Governor, the president should offer Federal assistance on condition that the incompetent officials resign. Then wait for it.

I seriously want to hear what the President has to say about this. I'm not into this togetherness; my state didn't get torn up by looters and rioters; you rebuild what you tore down on your own. The governor and mayor had a chance to stop it but they chose to let it play out as part of an attempt to destroy the President. This was not a natural disaster; it was fomented, created, and allowed to fester like a sore and run by leftists. Leftists like BLM, antifa, the demoncrat party, and Soros need to pay for the damage they've caused. No FEMA, no nothing from the rest of US! What say you, Mr. President?

Trump should tell both MN and Seattle NO! They allowed this to happen, they can use their own tax money to clean it up. This might be a lesson to other Blue States that THEY are going to have to deal with the consequences if they allow the BLM crowd to take over their cities and Police stations! No FEDERAL money should help them out!

I tend to agree with most of the respondents here for Trump to tell Walz to 'pound sand'. But if Trump is the 'great negotiator' maybe he should do otherwise and offer aid with strings attached - or better yet - ropes attached.

I call this asking- leverage. Trump is a negotiator... as a business man, he would need to see what Minnesota was going to do to work on clean up, what measures to prevent the scale of damage again, and what policies led to the mess.. Ownership of situation is on Gov and mayor.. period. I don’t want a dime of my money bailing out the Antifa and mob riots.

There is a damned if you do and ... don't. Denial of this request punishes the innocent as well as guilty. President Trump is pretty good about twisting these situations where the come out right. Maybe, a loan to the state that requires a budget to be followed - like a construction loan. A loan that releases the funds based on compliance the use of the funds strictly for infrastructure - fail to do so no, more money. To simply say "no" will hurt too many innocent people. We did something like this with an IMF loan to Brazil when it was bankrupt and had elected a socialist Lula - so its not unheard of and it worked. Brazil paid back the loan ... and then went on its merry way to socialism. No help there.

Maybe the good folks of Minnesota should consider a significant change of leadership so this doesn't happen again. I would love to see Minnesota Republicans come up with a plan to assist real people but give the governor and dems NO control or access to the money. Of course it would never pass Nasty Pelousy's House but it would be instructional to see her vote it down.

Five questions for Ghislaine Maxwell 14 replies

1. Why now? Maxwell was arrested at her remote estate in Bedford, New Hampshire eleven months after Jeffrey Epstein’s death in a New York police cell. The house was purchased for $1 million in cash through a shell company in December 2019. In the same month, Reuters reported that Maxwell was a target in the FBI’s investigation of people who ‘facilitated’ Epstein’s sexual crimes. Meanwhile, her location became the subject of international speculation. It now appears that the FBI knew exactly where she was. On Thursday, the FBI’s New York Assistant Director, William Sweeney admitted that ‘an eye was being kept and information was being collected’ for months:

It’s just what the nation needs right now in times that seem anything but normal. “The AAP,” the group’s statement reads, “strongly advocates that all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.“ “Schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being,” AAP’s statement points out. They “provide our children and adolescents with academic instruction, social and emotional skills, safety, reliable nutrition, physical/speech and mental health therapy, and opportunities for physical activity, among other benefits.”

Since the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, crowds demanding racial justice have surged into public spaces across the country and throughout the world—with solidarity actions springing up in South Korea and South Africa, Argentina and Australia. Domestically, demonstrations have materialized not only in major cities, but also in small-town America, including places with deeply conservative populations. As several political scientists noted in The Washington Post, "The United States rarely has protests in this combination of size, intensity and frequency; it usually has big protests or sustained protests, but not both." When will the protests end? And what will it mean when they do?

The United States recorded fewer than 50,000 new coronavirus cases for the first time in four days, while the world set a global record for confirmed infections in a 24-hour period, the World Health Organization reports. The new single-day mark stands at 212,326 cases. The U.S. contributed the most in that time frame, with large numbers also reported in Brazil and India. Experts cautioned that the dip in U.S. cases to just over 45,000 could be due to a number of factors, including reduced reporting during a national holiday. That same holiday might also end up accelerating the spread, with millions of Americans

Joe Biden tweeted Sunday night that if he gets elected, his administration “won’t just rebuild this nation—we’ll transform it,” raising speculation online about what exactly in the country will be transformed. The tweet comes after a politically charged Fourth of July weekend as the country works to manage a new surge in COVID-19 cases and tries to emerge from weeks of tense protests that have resulted in a widening divide between Democrats and Republicans. Biden’s tweet did not specify what exactly he means by transforming the country. His critics from the left have expressed concern that he served in the upper echelon of government for over 40 years

S ince it’s the Fourth of July, I’m going to write about history, and, man, Woodrow Wilson’s racist patootie on a spike puts a spring in my step. Princeton stripped the name of its long-ago president from its public-affairs school. He was our worst U.S. president for long-term damage. I don’t mind tenured college professors, but, as self-important fonts of naïveté as well as specialist knowledge, they’re best kept on a short leash. Ivory towers, after all, breed a sense of unreality that can cause more harm than good. They’re not known as places where common sense thrives.

After the bakery’s owner tried to stop a black student from shoplifting, the Oberlin student senate condemned the bakery as racist and called for a boycott of its products, which Oberlin stopped purchasing for a time. A jury awarded the Gibson family $44 million in damages (reduced to $33 million by operation of Ohio law). The case is on appeal to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

A s Americans discuss black livelihood in the context of recent high-profile black deaths at the hands of police officers, a merciless villain is quietly snatching away thousands of black lives each year: infant mortality. To be sure, medicine has gone a long way toward keeping black babies alive. In 1850, the black infant-mortality rate was 340 per 1,000 (compared with 217 per 1,000 for whites). Still, despite progress, last year over 7,000 black babies died in the United States before reaching one year of age — one baby for every 87 born. Troublingly, the infant-mortality rate is far higher for blacks than for other races:

In 2008, the Harvard University law professor helped Maxwell’s perverted pal Jeffrey Epstein secure a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Florida while the sexual predator was under investigation for abusing underage girls. Dershowitz also is embroiled in a lawsuit himself against Virginia Guiffre, who claims Epstein kept her as a teenage sex slave and forced her to sleep with both Prince Andrew and Dershowitz. The lawyer and royal both have vehemently denied this.

But he’s not winning back anyone. He is basically playing to that core group of voters who thrive on racial grievance, on resentment on fear.
