Last Monday, a 17-year-old had guns pointed at his chest and head in a carjacking at 6:30 p.m. in front of his house in south Minneapolis. The assailant ditched his car several blocks away. Then on Friday, an armed hit-and-run suspect tried to carjack a woman in north Minneapolis as she was heading to the kickoff of the Twin Cities Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Campaign, capping a week of more than 50 attempted or successful carjackings in the city. Residents in Minneapolis, St. Paul and increasingly some suburban communities are experiencing a record surge in armed carjackings, crimes that are terrorizing victims, baffling police

Today it’s all about equity as far as the leftist and socialist Democrats are concerned. So it’s just equitable for the “Amish” who do not have motor vehicles to steal them from ordinary people who have worked to purchase and maintain their motor vehicles. Don’t be surprised if Biden and the leftist and socialist Democrats don’t reward each “Amish” criminal with a new electric automobile of their choice at taxpayer’s expense and call that handout “reparations”. Why not as Biden and the leftist and socialist Democrats are pleased as punch that leftist and socialist lawyers who the Biden crew placed in the Justice Department are “negotiating” with the leftist Democrat aligned ACLU and their leftist and socialist Democrat and “open borders” supporting lawyers to settle bogus law suits on behalf of illegal aliens in amounts up to $450,000 each of up to one million dollars per illegal alien family because they were arrested by the Border Patrol after unlawfully entering the USA along the borderline, and were separated from their children by being placed in adult detention facilities, with their children being placed in other specific detention facilities the were designed to safeguard children. No doubt if such payouts are made at least half the payout money will end up in ACLU coffers and into the pockets of leftist and socialist Democrat lawyers who created those law suits to get such payouts of taxpayers money. Not only are those payouts instances of political corruption, but set a huge precedent to lure masses of illegal aliens to unlawfully enter the USA in the future.

Two answers, just give up or arm yourself and fight back. Either path could get you hurt or killed. I know which I will be most likely to take, although situations are frequently different than you think, and you must react to the actual situation, which may make armed response inadvisable.

A doctor was suspended by a Houston hospital for spreading misinformation about Covid-19. Houston Methodist hospital said Dr Mary Bowden, an ear, throat, and nose specialist, spread “dangerous misinformation” about Covid and shared personal and professional opinions the hospital deemed “harmful to the community”. Bowden, a recent hire, posted several tweets stating that she was against Covid-19 vaccine mandates. She also used Twitter to promote Ivermectin as a treatment for Covid-19, despite several public health officials having warned the public not to use the anti-parasitic drug, which has uses in humans and animals, as a coronavirus treatment.(Snip)“Like many Americans, Dr Bowden believes that people should

An ex-con who once tried to kill a Queens cop was arrested this week for randomly attacking another NYPD officer—only to be freed without bail, authorities and police sources said Monday. Accused repeat cop-attacker Isus Thompson, 38, could have been forced to cough up bail before being released from custody after his latest alleged assault on an officer. But a judge instead cut him loose after Bronx prosecutors failed to seek bail in the case—prompting an angry response from NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea in a tweet Monday.(Snip)Thompson had previously served two years of a five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to second-degree attempted murder

Former MLB shortstop Julio Lugo has died after “presumably” suffering a heart attack, according to ESPN’s Enrique Rojas. He was 45. Lugo, whose 12 MLB seasons included stints with the Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros and St. Louis Cardinals, would’ve turned 46 on Tuesday. He won the World Series with the Red Sox in 2007, his first year with the team, and hit .237 that year with 73 RBI and 135 hits. In that World Series sweep against the Rockies, Lugo went 5-for-13 with two runs scored. In 2009, he was traded to the Cardinals during the season and combined to hit .280 that year

A 13-year-old Seattle boy watched his father who was suffering from cardiac arrest die while waiting more than 20 minutes for help to arrive—in a tragedy that critics say was caused by a shortage of cops and medical personnel staff resulting from the woke mayor's vaccine mandates and defund the police movement. The unidentified boy called 911 earlier this month when his 45-year-old father began struggling to breath in the city’s Crown Hill neighborhood. Firefighters arrived at the scene within 15 minutes, but an outdated note on file mistakenly indicated that the apartment occupant was aggressive, slowing their response as they waited on a police escort.

White House chief of staff Ron Klain’s itchy Twitter finger helped derail the Biden administration’s latest vaccine mandate in court. A Sept. 9 retweet from Klain was cited as a key piece of evidence in the blistering ruling issued Friday by the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, which paused President Biden’s “staggeringly overbroad” rule forcing COVID-19 vaccines on millions of American workers. In a footnote, the three-judge panel pointed to Klain’s retweet of a post from MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle, who praised Biden’s mandate—enforced by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration—as “the ultimate work-around” to avoid sticky constitutional challenges.

The holiday season has long been a source of contention for many families, but this year families may be even more divided with almost two-thirds of fully jabbed Americans reportedly planning to ban their unvaccinated relatives from holiday festivities. The November 2 study by OnePoll analyzed the responses of 2,000 U.S. residents about how the COVID-19 vaccine has influenced relationships with loved ones. Fully vaccinated individuals accounted for 65 percent of respondents and nearly six out of 10 of those respondents had already severed ties with unvaccinated family members. CORRECTION*

Watching the news, one sees constant stories about COVID numbers rising, yet again, now almost two years into this pandemic, with COVID hospitalizations in some states higher than they have ever been except for the spike last December. In my state of Colorado, the test positivity rate is almost 10 percent, with 1 in 48 infected and if the current trend continues, this will be the worst COVID spike the state has seen.

WASHINGTON — Pete Buttigieg, the transportation secretary who holds the purse strings to much of President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure package, was holding forth with reporters on its impact — the promise of more electric cars, intercity train routes, bigger airports — when a pointed question came. How would he go about building racial equity into infrastructure? The 39-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate laid out his argument that highway design can reflect racism, noting that at least $1 billion in the bill will help reconnect cities and neighborhoods that had been racially segregated or divided by road projects. CORRECTIONS*
