    11/17/2013 6:50:59 AM PST · by nodakkid · 59 replies
    In Minnesota a 16 year old intruder intent on geting cash and drugs from 75 year old man wasn't as smart as the "old man". A 75-year-old Sandstone man pretended to be blind and hard of hearing to fool an armed intruder into lowering his gun, court papers say. The intruder ended up dead and another suspect is facing prison time. Read more at http://www.inforum.com/event/article/id/418644/group/homepage/

    New Zeal ^ | 29 Nov 2010 | Trevor Louden
    At 9am Tuesday November 30, 2010, New Zeal will post documentary evidence linking Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, to the Communist Party USA. Why is this important? A key part of Mark Ritchie's job is to oversee electoral recounts in Minnesota. In early 2009 Mark Ritchie judged that his Wellstone Action Advisory Committee and Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party colleague Al Franken had won a Minnesota U.S. Senate seat, even though Republican opponent Norm Coleman was ahead on election night. The recount was dogged with controversy, with allegations that felon's votes were illegally counted. Currently, Mark Ritchie is overseeing another election recount....

    Minnesota risks running out of money if those affected by overturned budget cuts seek immediate back pay. A spokesman for Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty said Thursday the state doesn't have the money on hand to cover $2.7 billion in cuts thrown into doubt by a Supreme Court ruling. The spokesman, Brian McClung, says while the ruling was tailored to a special nutrition program others hit by Pawlenty's 2009 cuts may ask to have state allowances restored. Legislative leaders met for an hour with Pawlenty and members of both parties emerged to describe the fiscal crisis. Pawlenty has asked lawmakers to...

    Minnesota's top teachers union official is urging schools to show President Barack Obama's live speech to students on Tuesday. It's the first day of school for most Minnesota districts. Dooher says some superintendents are getting pressure not to show the speech, and are even getting calls from parents threatening to keep their children home because they don't want them to watch what they view as a political message from the Democratic president. Dooher says the speech shouldn't be taken as political. He says he expects it to focus on the importance of education. A spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of...

    ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- A statement by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., makes it more likely the Senate could intervene in a Minnesota election, an analyst says. The Minnesota U.S. Senate contest between incumbent Republican Norm Coleman and Democratic challenger Al Franken is undergoing a recount, with the candidates separated by less than 300 votes out of 2.9 million cast. But a controversial decision by the state's Elections Canvassing Board could end up throwing the election into the lap of the Senate itself, a scholar told Minnesota Public Radio. "Ultimately, the Senate has complete authority...

    Remember push polls? Emerging just before elections, they pretend to desire the opinions of voters. Then, to those foolish enough to remain on the telephone, they proceed to shove political propaganda right down unsuspecting throats. In a variation, Al Franken has introduced the art of "push interviews", where in theory he's there to be asked questions. Pity the reporter, though, who believes it's anything other than Al's latest manipulation: an overbearing effort to persuade the other party his very line of inquiry is wrong. If Franken had his facts straight, that would one thing.....................snip...........................

    While it may not seem easy to keep Al Franken quiet on virtually any subject, we may have found a way: on national television, expose his outrageous compensation demands and watch him instantly clam up. One week after our report appeared here and was discussed on the O'Reilly Factor, Franken, his fellow staffers and Air America Radio itself haven't said a word about it. Nor have nonstop FOX-bashers such as David Brock's Media Matters even mentioned our documented findings. Included were revelations Franken made an increasing series of demands of the liberal radio network, at the same time it was...

    HADITHA, Iraq (Aug. 18, 2005) -- While patrolling through the streets of Iraq, Marines and sailors often find themselves under the watchful eyes of the city’s residents. One corpsman seems to receive more stares than anyone else. Petty Officer 3rd Class Chan Vang is only 4 feet 11 inches tall. However, height does not interfere with his job as a “devil doc” with I Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment. “I feel like I work twice as hard when it comes to patrolling,” the Minneapolis, Minn., native said. “Along with the extra load I have to carry, I have to...

He stashed an undisclosed amount of money in a SpongeBob gift bag and fled on foot.

She's 17. ....state law says candidates must be eligible voters and at least 21 years old when they take office. "I doubt the judge would be able to say no to the popular vote," she said. "The people's right to choose prevails over (state law)."

Together with YDS, DSA’s Youth Section, we are mobilizing to bring young people to Minnesota. Minnesota is one of the few states that allow same day voter registration. We will therefore focus our energy on registering young Minnesotans. Wellstone will need a high percentage of young people to register and vote for him if he is to stave off the campaign that Bush, the Republicans and the Greens are waging against him. He is the Right’s Number One electoral target. Because we are focusing...
