    Minneapolis Police informed residents of the city’s embattled 3rd Precinct to prepare for the giving up of their personal belongings to potential robbers, and advised them to do as criminals say for their own safety. According to a July 28 email provided to Alpha News MN that was also forwarded to The Daily Wire, the Minneapolis Police Department offered “prevention tips” to residents hoping to avoid being a victim of the skyrocketing cases of robbery and carjacking that have plagued the city since George Floyd’s death in May. “Robberies and Carjacking’s [sic] have increased in our Precinct,” the email begins....

    The major domestic threat to the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election. Last Thursday, President Trump raised the idea of possibly delaying the November 3rd general election date due to concerns about the implications of universal mail-in voting for the integrity of the presidential election. The president tweeted, “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote????” The mainstream media and the political establishment were aghast at the...
  • Pandemic and the Politics of Fear-What Saddam Hussein and the Democrats have in common

    The Democrats’ use of fear as a political weapon, and their scorched-earth policy for the country, remind me of my native Iraq and something Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad said. The classic textbook definition of politics is “who gets what, and how” -- the “who,” being any element of society -- an individual (private citizen or politician) or a group (political party, industry, interest, or class); the “what,” being the resources of the society (wealth and political power); and the “how,” being the means by which “the who” acquire “the what.” The “how” is the least-straightforward variable in the formula. An...

    City saw a second, peaceful march early Sunday and violence is 'abating,' say DHS and Portland police More than 150 rounds were fired and one woman was shot in Portland on Friday night while protesters on Saturday – some of whom appeared to impersonate press – threw glass bottles and shined lasers at city police officers sent to quell the nighttime unrest witnessed for more than two months straight. Saturday marked the third night of federal and state law enforcement cooperation in Portland, as the Department of Homeland Security continues to weigh plans to withdraw from the liberal Oregon city....
  • Democrats’ ‘War Game’ for Election Includes West Coast Secession, Possible Civil War

    Democrats are contemplating secession and potential civil war as they game out possible scenarios for a closely contested election, according to a report by Ben Smith in a New York Times column Sunday. The bulk of Smith’s column is devoted to the question of how the media will handle Election Night coverage, given that the result may not be known for weeks. Vote-by-mail, which many states have only recently adopted — ostensibly, to prevent the spread of coronavirus in polling places — could lead to an uncertain result. [...] In one scenario, John Podesta — the former chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — The U.S. Marine Corps has identified all nine people killed when a Marine landing craft sank in hundreds of feet of water off the Southern California coast. Only one of their bodies was found, despite an intense days-long search involving helicopters and boats ranging from inflatables to a Navy destroyer. Found at the scene was Lance Cpl. Guillermo S. Perez, 20, of New Braunfels Texas. The 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit announced on Sunday that the others, from California, Texas, Wisconsin and Oregon, are “presumed dead." They include: Pfc. Bryan J. Baltierra, 19, of Corona, California; Lance...

    Upscale department-store chain Lord & Taylor and its owner, clothing rental startup Le Tote Inc., have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The filing Sunday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Richmond, Va., came less than a year after Le Tote bought the chain from Hudson's Bay Co. in a $100 million deal. Lord & Taylor has 38 locations in the U.S., according to the filing, and about 650 employees. Some of the stores, which have been closed since March due to the pandemic, reportedly had new "store closing" signs put up Sunday. Department stores have been particularly hard hit by the pandemic, and...

    One of President Trump's top medical advisers has warned that the US is entering a new phase in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Deborah Birx told CNN the disease was "extraordinarily widespread" across the country and a greater threat than when the outbreak first began. She said it was now affecting rural areas as well as big cities. She said rural communities were not immune and should wear masks and practice social distancing. The US has recorded more cases and deaths than any other country. According to a tally by Johns Hopkins University, more than 4.6 million infections and...

    Portland Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler announced in June that he was authorizing radical changes to how policing was done in his city, including disbanding the city’s gun violence reduction team. Now the city is grappling with a surge in violent crime. “Portland police are scrambling to respond to 15 homicides in the city so far in July. That’s the most killings in one month in more than three decades,” The Oregonian reported. “So far this year, 24 people have died in homicides in Portland.” While the city has been in the national spotlight for violent riots that have occurred for...

    Menswear retailer Tailored Brands Inc. TLRD, -21.23%, the parent company of Men's Wearhouse and Jos. A. Banks, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Sunday, the Wall Street Journal reported. The clothier has been hit hard by pandemic-related store shutdowns, reporting last month that first-quarter sales were down 60%. Since July 1, Tailored Brands has missed missed interest payments on bonds, slashed its corporate workforce by 20%, announced plans to close up to 500 stores and was notified that it will be delisted by the New York Stock Exchange. The company operated more than 1,400 stores in the U.S. and Canada as of Feb. 1, and employed more than 1,900 people. Earlier...

    No, I don’t know where Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg got his medical degree and license either, yet there he sits atop the social media food chain dictating who can say and know what about the Chinese Wuhan virus pandemic and its treatments and possible cures. He now says he knows more than board-certified medical doctors about the drug hydroxychloroquine, for example, and will deny you access to what they say, calling their judgments and pronouncement based on their studies and actual experience treating patients as “harmful misinformation. Dr. Zuckerberg has spoken and he will not let us hear a second...

    The remarkable find was made at Penn Museum in Philadelphia, in the basement of the building where other archaeological artefacts are displayed. The skeleton had been left in the basement for 85 years before being rediscovered and represents a rare find. While the museum has other remains from ancient Ur, about 10 miles (16 km) from Nassiriya in southern Iraq, "Noah" - as the skeleton was named - is about 2,000 years older than any remains uncovered during the excavation at the site. The museum said the discovery had important implications for current research. Scientific techniques that were not available...

    VIDEO Liberal Supreme Court Justice In Waiting Who Never Was Laurence Tribe gave away the ultimate Democrat election game plan to Joy Reid on MSNBC on July 31. As he explains, via massive use of mail-in ballots which, as we have already seen, cause chaos, confusion, and delay, the electoral college could be unable to choose a clear winner of the election. If no winner is determined by this January 20 then, according to Tribe, Nancy Pelosi would become president...if the Democrats retain control of the House.

    The Department of Energy reached a settlement Thursday to recover $200 million in taxpayer funds from a loan the Obama administration distributed in 2011 to finance a $1 billion solar power plant that was deemed obsolete before it could officially go online. The settlement between DOE and Tonopah Solar Energy must now be approved by a bankruptcy court, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported. The DOE provided a $737 million loan to Tonopah in September 2011 for the purposes of financing the $1.1 billion Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in Nevada. The agency disbursed funds for the plant in 2011 and...

    Divine Wrath for Amazon Synod Idolatry The world's tribulations and the Pachamama enthronement The world, it would seem, stands accursed on account of the outright idolatry endorsed by Rome in the weeks bookending the infamous Amazon Synod. Indeed, in the immediate aftermath of the enthronement of a grotesque and simian statue of the heathen goddess Pachamama in the Eternal City, a spate of calamities has ravaged mankind in what can be little other than divine chastisement for Church leaders' blasphemy.    Although the Pachamama incident of 2019 — despicable as it was — has become a nigh ubiquitously known and oft-lamented bit...

    It is August, 2020, now seventy-five years since the end of America's World War II hostilities with the nation then known as the Empire of Japan. August 6 and 9 are the historic anniversary dates of the first and only use of nuclear weapons in warfare. In the ensuing three quarters of a century, the attacks of 1945 on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki — their usefulness and their rectitude — have been the subject of vigorous debate over their military, scientific, political, historic, and moral significance. Schools of thought regarding yes-or-no justification generally break down as follows:...

    The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has been an annual tradition in South Dakota for 80 years, and despite the fears of many residents, it appears that the 2020 edition of the rally will go forward as planned in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Sturgis expects more than 250,000 people to pass through the city during the Aug. 7 to 16 event, and though that number is only about half of the rally’s typical attendance, it would likely still be the largest gathering in America since the pandemic began. South Dakota has been relatively spared by the coronavirus, recording just 135...
