Minneapolis is having another violent and deadly weekend. Several shootings took place between Saturday night and early Sunday morning, starting with a homicide investigation on the north side of town. The first incident began at 9 p.m. Saturday; it was a homicide at Uptown Avenue North in Minneapolis. Then, about 7 miles away and an hour and a half later, Minneapolis police say a person was shot in their car on Clinton Avenue South. There was another call for a gunshot victim 20 minutes past midnight. This time, off of Portland Avenue, a male victim was shot inside his apartment


Activists want '21 Days of Peace'. Why not 21 years?

Yeah, pleading has always worked so well in the past. Gee, I wonder what might actually work? Perhaps hiring some men, train them in the law, fighting, and how to use guns, and set them out to stop these violent criminals? Nah, they probably should try social workers and pleading some more.

As sad as it is, these poor manipulated fools will never learn. The black communities are out of freakin control and until there are consequences for their actions they will never change. Until prisons become real prisons again nothing will change. Sending a thug to prison today is like sending them to a class reunion. You treat an animal like an animal. Oh, and for all of you white trash out there apologizing for being white, do everybody a favor and go jump off of a building. Get it yet.

I'm NOT going to tell you to vote Republican. That's silly. They're all just politicians looking for a cushy job. Vote None Of The Above Party. Any incumbent is OUT. Next guy if he sounds reasonable is in and next election he's an incumbent and he's OUT. Term limits the smart way.

The real answer is more Feminist and Gender courses. Crank up the OR for more trans surgery. Make it illegal to go into a Church or say God in public. This should solve the problem.

Activists are pleading for this? Aren't the regular vanilla law-abiding everyday citizens pleading for the same thing? Haven't regular people always pleaded for peace? Doesn't KSTP-TV lend them an ear too? I'm sorry, but I'm not quite able to articulate how it is that I find this headline to be incredibly condescending and insulting.

From the article; “Once we get people to understand that ALL LIVES MATTER and we are all in this together, whether we like it or not," Philip Holmes said. "I am encouraged. I have to stay encouraged that we're going to get more community involvement." No, Black lives racist.

Stop with the feigned grief displayed in marches,vigils and bad pictures of the dead along fences. Law enforcement can't deal with all of it and the Commiecrat class doesn't want it to stop because it furthers their aims. Wake up black people - many of you know who is carrying a gun or selling Crack. Stop your unfailing allegiance to your tribe and turn in the gangbangers instead of complaining.

I said, as did my wife and other that I know, "All lives matter" was the proper, non-racist correction to their racist chant. And that was shouted down in the the media as "racist"....which was, of course and as usual, exactly the OPPOSITE of the truth. All lives should matter, but frankly, there are a lot of power hungry folks who are willing to kill a LOT of people to gain money or power. And this is as has always been the case.

Iowa Dems feel hopes fading

KEOKUK, Iowa — Democrats lost last year's election for Iowa's 2nd Congressional District by the narrowest margin in a House race in almost 40 years. After the six-vote heartbreaker, some expected Democrat Rita Hart to immediately declare a rematch in the southeast district long held by her party. So far, no Democrat has stepped up to run. The hesitancy to jump into a district now as competitive as they come is one measure of Democrats' fatigue in a state viewed for decades as a true battleground. Even as the coronavirus pandemic gradually wanes and President Joe Biden's job approval remains strong
WHO renames Covid variants with Greek letters 15 replies

The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced a new naming system for variants of Covid-19. From now on the WHO will use Greek letters to refer to variants first detected in countries like the UK, South Africa and India. The UK variant for instance is labelled as Alpha, the South African Beta, and the Indian as Delta. The WHO said this was to simplify discussions but also to help remove some stigma from the names. Earlier this month the Indian government criticised the naming of variant B.1.617.2 - first detected in the country last October - as the "Indian variant", though the

Mitt Romney's successful 2012 campaign

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) would likely be among the first to admit that he's not the most popular name in Republican circles these days, but that doesn't mean his successful bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012 can't serve as a template for future contenders. The Republican Party's 2024 picture is muddled. The consensus seems to be that until former President Donald Trump makes it clear whether he'll run, potential candidates will lay low. One way they can do that and still make some headway if they do ultimately enter the scrum is to get involved with 2022 House

Beginning in 1973, when he was a United States Senator from Delaware, Joe Biden had a ritual: nearly every evening he would hop a train back to Wilmington after his work day on Capitol Hill, spending most nights and weekends at the place he considered home, 100 miles from Washington. (Snip) Since taking office four months ago, the President has spent more weekends away from the White House than he has stayed there, almost three times as many.

For months now, my friends who are millennials have struggled to find single-family homes on the market in the suburbs, exurbs and even in rural areas — and when they do, they face daunting bidding wars. Millennials are leaving the city in droves as urban centers like New York and San Francisco see their populations decline. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a housing shortage and skyrocketing prices, with “feeding frenzies” for houses, notably outside major urban centers. Millennials (age 25-40) are part of this dynamic, seeking to make their lives outside of cities and to

Democratic senator Kyrsten Sinema was absent for Friday’s historic vote on a proposed Capitol riot investigation, and she still hasn’t said why. After Republicans blocked a bill to establish a commission investigating the 6 January Capitol attack, Democrats directed most of their anger at the 35 GOP senators who voted against it. But there were also two Democrats who didn’t even show up for the vote: Senator Patty Murray, and Ms Sinema. “She will be entering into the Congressional record that she would've voted yes,” the Arizona senator’s spokesperson, Hannah Hurley, told The Arizona Republic.

A bear attacked and injured a hiker in Yellowstone National Park Friday morning, marking the first incident of a bear injuring a person inside the park this year, officials said. A bear fatally attacked a man just outside the park in April. The 39-year-old man injured Friday was hiking alone on a trail near Mammoth Hot Springs when he encountered what he believe to be two grizzly bears. One bear attacked and injured the hiker. The Beaver Ponds Trail, where the hiker was injured, was closed until further notice. Park officials reported that staff were searching the area to make

MADRID — Spain’s postal service is feeling a backlash from its attempt to highlight racial inequality. State-owned Correos España this week issued a set of four stamps in different skin-colored tones. The darker the stamp, the lower the price. The lightest color costs 1.60 euros ($1.95). The darkest one costs 0.70 euros ($0.85). The postal service calls them “Equality Stamps” and introduced them on the anniversary of George Floyd being killed by a police officer in Minneapolis. It said the stamps “reflect an unfair and painful reality that shouldn’t be allowed” and that every letter or parcel sent with them

Manhattan’s Billionaires’ Row will soon feature a men’s homeless shelter smack-bang in the middle of it despite a three-year offensive to halt its creation by members of the city’s elite, the New York Court of Appeals has ruled. Residents of the city’s priciest street fought tooth and nail to halt Mayor de Blasio’s $60.8 million plan to open a 150-bed men’s shelter in the closed Park Savoy Hotel at 158 W. 58th St., arguing the location would be a dangerous “firetrap” and that crime would inevitably ensue on the ritzy block.

Nine killed by gunfire in another mass shooting. Hateful attacks on Jews and Asians rising. All of that happened in the last week. Americans should be coming together in celebration of declining coronavirus infections this Memorial Day. Instead, the bursts of public violence and hate reflect deep political division.

Liberal media reporters and pundits admitted over the weekend they were wrong to dismiss the Wuhan lab leak theory just because it was espoused by former President Donald Trump.Mainstream reporters had pushed back at the idea that COVID-19 may have originated in a virology lab in Wuhan, China, and openly ridiculed the idea as Trump spoke openly about it in the early days of the pandemic. But now, those same reporters have admitted that it is possible that the virus came from a lab leak — as more scientists and political officials openly question the virus' origins.'I think a lot of people have egg on their face,'
