  • Pastor Who Fled Persecution in Iran Arrested in Minnesota for Sharing the Gospel

    This is absolutely outrageous. How is this happening right here at home without more backlash? Every single American who values the First Amendment, whether they’re religious or not, should be horrified to hear that a man was arrested in a mall simply for privately sharing his faith with fellow shoppers. What’s worse, of course, is that the man is himself a religious refugee who came to the US to seek refuge from persecution. “I came to the U.S. as a political and religious — as a Christian — refugee. They oppressed me for my faith in Iran. I was stabbed...

    Washington Monthly ^ | November/December 2018 | Gilad Edelman
    There’s something suspicious about Salena Zito’s glowing profiles of Trump voters. Does anyone in conservative media care? If it weren’t for Donald Trump, Salena Zito would likely still be unknown outside of Pittsburgh. Zito, a former political staffer and consultant, was forty-six when she was hired to write about politics for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in 2005. The paper was then owned by the late conservative billionaire activist Richard Mellon Scaife. It was Zito’s entry to journalism. For eleven years, she served as a hybrid reporter-columnist, filing moderately conservative opinion pieces leavened with folksy, on-the-ground interviews of the everyday people she...

    AOL News ^ | November 19, 2018 | Lauren Holter, Yahoo! News
    A Chipotle manager was fired from a Saint Paul, Minnesota branch after a video of her refusing to serve black customers went viral. But social media users pointed to old tweets from the man who posted the video that suggested he had a history of dining and dashing. In the video, posted to Twitter last week, the white manager is seen laughing and telling the group of men, “You gotta pay cause you never have money when you come in here.” As one of the men is filming, a white customer was allegedly given their meal for free, according to...

    In an effort to beef up the city’s tech workforce, the George Kaiser Family Foundation is offering $10,000, free rent, and other perks to remote workers who move to Tulsa for a year. “I’m a California, New York guy,” Michael Basch tells me. “I figured I’d be really bored here.” “Here” is Tulsa, the second-largest city in Oklahoma, known for its new $465 million public park, the Gathering Place, and its annual Chili Bowl. Since moving there earlier this year, Basch says that he hasn’t been bored at all. The city may be 1,640 miles and a world away from...

    A glassware manufacturer in Hortonville, Wisconsin, gifted employees handguns for Christmas this year. Ben Wolfgram, who co-owns BenShot — a company that produces glassware embedded with bullets — opted to gift his employees handguns in an attempt at team building and for personal safety. The Appleton Post-Crescent reported Wolfgram’s business has 16 full-time employees — some of whom are U.S. military veterans. Wolfgram told the outlet that most of his employees were gratified by the prospect of a handgun, and only two initially declined the gift. They appeared to reconsider, however, after taking a gun safety course on the company’s...

    This looks like an interesting piece of evidence when discussing the wildfires...Or so called wild fires all over the State of California. Basically all you have to do is search a California wildfires map in the last year or so and put the map of the proposed California high speed rail system continually being pushed by the far left government of California. What do you get when placing these images next to each other...Well it just so happens that the California wildfires happen to be all located along the proposed lines of the California high speed rail project.

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...

    “There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process,” the former Florida governor tweeted. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called for embattled Broward County election chief Brenda Snipes to be removed from office, adding fuel to a Republican effort to cast doubt on the validity of statewide election results. The Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office, to which Bush appointed Snipes in 2003, has come under fire. The office continued on Monday to count tens of thousands of ballots, leading some...

    I've been living in Cincinnati 50% of the time this year and I am so glad Aftab Pureval and Jill Schiller both lost. I got so tired of seeing their happy smiling "I'm an immigrant." "I'm a mom." ads over and over and over while streaming shows. They spoke nothing about their stances, nothing about their backgrounds, presented no ideas, just happy happy fluff. Which, since they're Democrats, means they're card carrying communists from the Obama administration (Which Jill was.). I am happy to see all of the Senate flips of course but for some reason these House races really...

    French President Emmanuel Macron has reiterated calls for a European Union army, this time saying that it is needed to protect the bloc from China, Russia, and even the United States. The progressive leader, a proponent of greater EU federalisation which will result in the reduction in sovereignty for European nations, told Europe 1 Monday night that the bloc needs a “real European army”. “We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Macron said, according to Agence France-Presse.

    I'm watching a couple of potential false flag racism stories here in MN. One at a College, one at a High School. I'm going to keep them in my pocket until the charges are proven one way or another. I suspect them to be self inflicted hate speech. Keep your eyes and ears open to similar reports as we near the mid-terms.
  • Minnesota’s apostle of hate (Keith Ellison)

    Keith Ellison is Minnesota’s incumbent Fifth District congressman, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee and DFL candidate for Minnesota attorney general. He was a long-time apostle of hate on behalf of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, though the local Minnesota media haven’t gotten around to revisiting the issue as Ellison seeks statewide office. Now he is an apostle of hate on behalf of the causes of the increasingly mainstream far left of the Democratic Party. Speaking last week at a debate with GOP candidate Doug Wardlow, Ellison explained that he had operated under the impression that Farrakhan...

The New York-based money manager, touted as the biggest with $6.28 trillion in assets under management, will go from 15 employees in the Georgia capital to 1,000 people by 2024. According to the Wall Street Journal, BlackRock will use $25 million in public tax breaks to bolster its Southern expansion. The final incentive package is still under negotiation with the city, the report continued, citing unnamed sources. BlackRock (NYSE: BLK) did confirm the Atlanta expansion in a memo to employees Thursday, calling it “our newest innovation hub.” The memo was signed by chief...

    The crude bombs sent to several liberal politicians and news networks this week were sent through a major Unites Sates Postal Service mailing facility in South Florida, it's been revealed. All 10 bombs sent to the Clintons, former President Obama, CNN and other prominent Democrats are all believed to have come through the Opa-locka processing and distribution center, CNN reports. FBI and canine units were deployed to the facility Thursday as the search continues for the person or persons behind the bombs. The U.S. Post Office Royal Palm Processing & Distribution Center in Opa-locka is the main mailing facility in...
