Korboi Balla was honored when Donald Trump’s staff invited him to join the president for a rally at the MSP Airport this summer to speak about how rioters burned down his Minneapolis sports bar. But the Liberian immigrant also worried about backlash from the Black community, which overwhelmingly votes Democrat. Balla doesn’t closely follow politics and is still undecided in the election. He just wanted to talk about what happened to his business.(Snip) Some entrepreneurs of color who suffered losses from the riots after George Floyd’s death are wrestling with the political implications of Trump using their stories to blame Democrats for permitting the chaos

Comments:

There's controversy in Communities of Color because the Marxist rioters were clever enough to cloak themselves in bLACK, rendering any objection, even by those Of Color whose livelihoods were destroyed, as RACIST.

Seems pretty clear that the writer was trying avoid reporting that people support the President, and making excuses for Biden.

Voting for Democrats over and over again, for 50+ years, and expecting different results.... But notice how this guy is afraid, which is a form of tyranny. It's something gangs do to neighborhoods - incite fear and silence.

Minnesota is becoming Little Somalia. How did that happen?? Question: does everyone in Somalia marry their brothers or sisters? is that a custom, or something?

Trump cuts refugees to record low 9 replies
Posted by Ribicon 10/1/2020 6:07:00 PM Post Reply
The administration has set a cap of admitting no more than 15,000 refugees in fiscal year 2021, marking the lowest number on record and completing President Trump’s goal of restructuring the modern refugee system. The number marks the fourth straight year of cuts—last year’s cap was 18,000—and underscores the deep political divide between Mr. Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden, who has said he would set the cap at 125,000 refugees. State Department officials informed Congress of Mr. Trump’s number just before a midnight Thursday deadline, when the fiscal year began. And they set the number without the consultation the law

A federal judge Thursday halted a Justice Department commission studying issues plaguing the law enforcement community from releasing its report because the panel excluded civil rights leaders. U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled the much-ballyhooed Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which requires government committees to receive input from “fairly balanced” viewpoints. Judge Bates, a George W. Bush appointee, wrote in his 45-page opinion that the commission was full of law enforcement officials, but none of the members have “a criminal defense, civil rights, or community organization background.”

The US Navy SEALs have changed their creed statement to become gender-neutral and have eliminated terms such as “brotherhood,” according to a report. “Naval Special Warfare continues to deliberately develop a culture of tactical and ethical excellence that reflects the nation we represent, and that draws upon the talents of the all-volunteer force who meet the standards of qualification as a SEAL or SWCC,” Navy Special Warfare spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Stroup told American Military News.(Snip) Instead of “A common man with uncommon desire to succeed,” it now says: “Common citizens with uncommon desire to succeed.” Another alters “I am that man”

Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden flatly denied at Tuesday night’s debate that his lawyer son took huge sums of money from corrupt oligarchs and Chinese communists during his vice presidency, but Treasury Department reports show that Hunter Biden did receive the money. President Trump chose to make an issue of Hunter Biden’s cash haul from Russia, Ukraine and China with the implication that unsavory figures were trying to buy Vice President Biden and the Obama administration.(Snip) Hunter Biden received a single wire transfer of $3.5 million from Elena Baturina.

A group of Pennsylvania lawmakers posed topless to help remind voters to avoid submitting so-called naked mail-in ballots. “Desperate times call for desperate measures!” Allegheny County Councilwoman Bethany Hallam tweeted on Saturday. “So your favorite elected officials got naked so that you remember to make sure that your mail-in ballot is NOT submitted without its secrecy envelope!! #nonakedballots #dressyourballot.” The topless tweet comes after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled earlier this month that ballots had to be rejected if not enclosed in the proper secrecy envelope. The decision left Democratic leaders fearing a large number of votes could be invalidated

A Florida woman says she was forced to forfeit her lotto prize after the US Postal Service lost her winning ticket in the mail. Sue Burgess, of Hernando County, said she was thrilled to discover earlier this summer that she snagged $1,000 in the state’s Second Chance Lottery game, news station WFLA. “I was elated. It was like winning a million dollars to me,” Burgess told the outlet. But at the time, she couldn’t claim her winnings at any of the local lottery offices since they were closed due to the pandemic. She followed the state lottery’s instructions and went to the post office

There’s a word to describe Americans who believe in a colorblind society and that all people should be treated equally regardless of their skin color: racist. That, at least, is the contention of the burgeoning anti-racism movement, which holds that people are either racist or anti-racist, and those who are not actively agitating against White supremacy and systemic racism might as well take a seat next to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Oh, and if you say you’re not racist, you’re definitely racist.(Snip) “It is essentially a totalitarian requirement that you have to join their cause or you are opposing their cause.”

JPMorgan Chase will pay a record $920million to settle US civil and criminal charges over fake trades in precious metals and Treasury futures designed to manipulate the market, US agencies announced Tuesday. The settlement comes as the US banking giant reached a deferred prosecution agreement with the Justice Department to resolve criminal fraud charges over the long-running schemes. In one of the schemes, JPMorgan traders in New York, London and Singapore between 2008 and 2016 commissioned tens of thousands of orders for gold, silver, platinum and palladium futures that were placed in order to be canceled to deceive other market participants, the Department

Minnesota schools, reopening amid a pandemic and a national reckoning over systemic racism, are sharpening their focus on the state’s decadeslong problems with achievement gaps and educational disparities. Around the state, schools are adding new staff to focus on equity in classroom instruction and hiring, and approving policies that define—and disavow—racism.(Snip) Minnesota’s educational gaps are stark; the most recent statewide test scores showed that 63% of white students met proficiency standards in math, compared with 26% of Black and American Indian students. Graduation rates have ticked up in recent years, but white students are still more likely to earn a diploma than students of color.

President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden went head-to-head on Tuesday night, and moderator Chris Wallace got knocked out. Wallace seemed to push left-wing talking points to help Trump and hurt Biden, but both candidates talked over him. Trump and Biden brought out the fisticuffs and both got in a few good hits. Biden stumbled but he did not come across as a bumbling fool. While Trump and Biden both went on the offensive, Trump got in more clear statements and Biden came across as shifty, especially on packing the Supreme Court.

With 24 hours having passed since the first presidential debate, it’s becoming clear that Trump won in a big way. It wasn’t an apparent victory, but it was a real one: He showed his base and ordinary Americans that he will always fight while forcing Biden to disavow both his hard-left base and the last of the old-fashioned Democrats who still support him Don’t pay too much attention to the pessimistic pundits. The worriers worried, the haters hated, the ambivalent were ambivalent, the cheerleaders cheered. Personality may not be destiny, but it determines post-debates reviews.

He further characterized the tense 90-minute back-and-forth as “a terrible missed opportunity.”Explaining how he “never never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did,” Wallace also addressed the widespread criticism of his moderating.

The wife of a Massachusetts transit police officer who was injured in the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers accused Joe Biden of touching her inappropriately and making a suggestive comment in 2014. In two Facebook posts, one of which has since been deleted, Kim Donohue alleged that during a remembrance ceremony in Boston, a year after the April 2013 deadly bombing, then-Vice President Biden began "rubbing" her lower back. "Look at those eyes, where did you get those eyes?" Donohue wrote. "Anyone else as good looking as you in that family ... those eyes are mesmerizing, people must just do whatever you say."

ROME - The Vatican said on Wednesday it had denied a request from Mike Pompeo for an audience with Pope Francis, and accused the Secretary of State of trying to drag the Catholic Church into the U.S. presidential election by denouncing its relations with China. The extraordinary remarks from the two top diplomatic officials at the Vatican came after Pompeo accused the Church in an article and a series of tweets this month of putting its “moral authority” at risk by renewing an agreement with China over the appointment of bishops.
