    State transportation officials want to do something about traffic and safety on Interstate 94 between downtown Minneapolis and Interstate 694, as well as state Highway 252 between I-694 and Highway 610. Minnesota Department of Transportation is considering converting a stretch of highway into a freeway and putting MnPASS lanes on I-94 and 252. But some are raising concerns about what the proposed changes might mean for residents of north Minneapolis who live along the I-94 corridor. Alex Burns is chair of the Sierra Club North Star Chapter's land use and transportation team. He said that more traffic on I-94 will...

    A Madison Metropolitan School District spokesperson says the students were staying at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis for a conference. The district is working with Minneapolis police during an investigation. The staffer who was with the students on the trip has been placed on administrative leave, as per district policy, as a precaution during the active investigation, the spokesperson says. Hyatt Regency Minneapolis general manager Mark Bastis said to KARE11 that the hotel immediately contacted local authorities when they learned about the situation and "conducted a thorough property-wide search for unauthorized recording devices; no additional devices have been found."

    I recently gave a talk to a college class that began with each member of the class introducing himself or herself–which, in today’s academy, means stating one’s name and preferred pronouns. (As best I could tell, they all got their pronouns right.) I had assumed this type of silliness was limited to college campuses, but no. The Minnesota Sun reports: “Minneapolis Police Receive Mandatory Training on Gender Pronouns.”

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) on Sunday rallied supporters of his presidential bid in Minnesota alongside Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who depicted the Vermont senator as a steadfast champion of progressive causes. Omar, who said she was "honored to stand with the son of a Jewish refugee who survived genocide," introduced the senator at Williams Arena, which the campaign said drew just over 10,000 people, according to CBS News. "The acknowledgement of pain and suffering is personal for both of us," she added. Omar, who recently endorsed Sanders along with two other members of the so-called "squad" of progressive female freshmen...

    MINNETONKA, Minn. ( - A drag queen exposed his crotch while reading to children at a Minneapolis area Drag Queen Story Hour. On October 17 the Hennepin County Library in Minnetonka, Minnesota, sponsored one of at least 17 Drag Queen Story Hours taking place in libraries throughout the county between September and October. Anne Taylor, a child advocate and witness to the event, comments, "We've heard of stories here and across the U.S. on Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) taking precedence in our local, tax-payer funded libraries. I initially thought this was a hoax and simply unfathomable until I experienced...

    All four members of “The Squad” come from deep blue districts that normally are safe seats for Democrats. But Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents the city of Minneapolis and a few inner ring suburbs, is now caught in a scandal that threatens to alienate her biggest voting bloc base, fellow Muslim Somalis, who emigrated to Minnesota by the tens of thousands at the behest of the  State Department that thought the generous welfare benefits of the North Star State could well be spent on people from a tropical climate transplanted to the coldest metropolis in the country. Most readers...

    The boy Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, says mean Twitter messages made him feel like a woman, bringing to mind (for me, anyway) Shania Twain. But let’s set the stage: President Trump planned a major rally at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. Frey publicly stated that he would like to bar the president from entering his city, but sadly lacks the power to do so–that pesky Constitution again! He then came up with a clever way to achieve his goal of blocking Trump’s appearance–he sent the Target Center’s management a $530,000 bill for “security.” That didn’t work, and Trump...

    After you read this ask yourself if you saw any of it on the MSM. Donald Trump held a rally in Minneapolis the other day. There were protests held outside the arena and they provided everyone with a glimpse into how the world would look with firm democrat control. Have a look at how these animals act: Protests outside President Trump’s rally in Minnesota took a violent turn as demonstrators began to set fire to campaign memorabilia, confront police, and throw urine. Trump was speaking at a rally in Minneapolis Thursday night after sparring with Mayor Jacob Frey for a...

    Can former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., actually defeat President Trump in the 2020 presidential election? Democrats watching Trump’s Minneapolis rally Thursday night have to wonder. President Trump wowed the crowd in blue-state Minnesota. And what a crowd it was; tens of thousands inside the arena chanting and cheering, while hundreds more stood outside hoping to get in. The energy in the room was extraordinary, especially considering that the president, buoyed by his fans, spoke for an exhausting hour and 45 minutes. Forget the polls, forget the partisan impeachment inquiry; the enthusiasm of those Minnesota supporters...

    Chris Kelley a Minneapolis police officer running against Ilhan Omar: “She’s traveling the world. She’s fighting the president. She’s not doing anything in the district. And, I can say firsthand, the homelessness, the opioid problems, and other issues aren’t improving.” “Ilhan Omar is an absentee landlord; residents aren’t happy,” continued Kelley. 2020 is “going to be a totally different animal,” continued Chris Kelley, “you’re going to have a lot of people coming out, and I think we have an excellent chance of coming out on top.” Kelly tweeted that the actions of the two Democrats are putting officers in danger...

    President Trump is fighting back against an impeachment inquiry by taking his counterpunching style on the road. What do fans at one of his rallies make of the scandal? "It's the first time I've worn my cap downtown," confesses Jake Biehn as he waits for President Donald Trump's rally to start in Minneapolis, a city currently run by Democrats. If he worried about standing out in his Make America Great Again baseball cap, he needn't have been. The centre of the city is a bobbing sea of red and white. The slogan is on t-shirts - along with Women for...

    Full title: Hard-Hitting CNN 'Journalist' Jim Acosta Came to a Vile Conclusion About Trump Supporters In Minneapolis The mainstream media is often unsure why President Donald Trump has dubbed the term "fake news" and why he continually calls them out for their shoddy reporting. CNN's Jim Acosta is one of the so-called "reporters" who has been at the forefront of Trump's battle with the press. Last year, the White House suspended his hard press pass after he pushed an intern holding a microphone. Eventually, CNN sued to have the hard pass reinstated. They won the lawsuit, Acosta's press pass was...

    Police officers on horseback and bicycles formed a protective line in front of the arena, according to The Tribune. Officers with riot batons and shields also maneuvered through the crowd of protesters. The Post captured video of one Hispanic family who wore pro-Trump clothing departing from the rally as one protester shouted “He hates you!” The mother repeated “Mexicanos for Trump!" as she left the scene.

    The Golden Golem of Greatness shifted into mad bull overdrive for last night’s Minneapolis fan rally, cussing and bellowing at the picadors of the Left who have been sticking lances in his neck for three years. Decorum is not Mr. Trump’s strong suit, but then the bull is not sent into the ring to negotiate politely for his life. The narrative of the bullring is certain death. The bull must do what he can within his nature to dispute it. It’s in Mr. Trump’s nature to act the part of a reality TV star, and, of course, it is the...

    Republicans at President Donald Trump's rally in Minneapolis on Thursday will reportedly be escorted by a typically heavily armed group that has been called "one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today." That is how the Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Oath Keepers, who refer to themselves as "guardians of the republic." On the group's website, it describes itself as a "non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to 'defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'" The Oath...

    (snips) -- When President Trump holds his Target Center rally Thursday night, it will draw thousands of his supporters and opponents to the heart of the most Democratic city in the state. It’s created logistical and cost concerns for Minneapolis officials, who are asking for help from state, local and federal law enforcement agencies and expecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra costs for security." "Giselda Gutierrez works with the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee, which posted a “Dump Trump” protest event on Facebook that's attracted thousands of responses.

    President Trump heads to Minnesota Thursday for a campaign rally in a state that he narrowly lost in 2016 but hopes to win in 2020. In 2016, Hillary Clinton squeaked out a win by a mere 1.5% in the state. Still, Mr. Trump surpassed expectations in the state, which currently holds the longest record of voting Democratic in presidential elections and was the only state won by Walter Mondale in Ronald Reagan's 49-state landslide in 1984. The last Republican to win Minnesota was Richard Nixon in 1972. Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez said at a meeting in June that...

    Supporters of President Donald Trump protested Wednesday outside the City Hall office of Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who has been in a public spat with the Trump campaign over the $530,000 security bill for Thursday’s Target Center rally. Chants of “We support our police, Frey do you?” and “Trump, Trump, Trump!” rang out for about a half-hour as the crowd of about two dozen people mobilized outside of Frey’s office. The mayor was not present, in observance of Yom Kippur. Plans for the rally first surfaced late Tuesday afternoon when the national coordinator of Bikers for Trump posted a Facebook...
