    Minnesota students taking part in the national gun control walkouts on Wednesday allegedly assaulted another student carrying a Trump flag. According to CBS, the incident occurred outside of Southwest High School and Minneapolis Police are currently investigating the incident as an assault. Per CBS, two students taking part in the protest allegedly noticed the male victim holding the flag while standing across the street from the school. After the two approached the victim, six other protesters followed before stealing his flag, damaging his camera and “inflicting minor injuries.” So far, no arrests have been made in connection to the incident.

    A viral video taken at a Minnesota high school during National Walkout Day has garnered millions of views and shares. Students across the U.S. walked out of class Wednesday, demanding an end to gun violence in schools. But a student holding a sign supporting gun rights at New Prague High School said the principal told him to give up the sign or leave school property. "I came out here with a poster trying to make a difference," said Andy Dalsin, a senior. Dalsin said principal Lonnie Seifert told him to give up a sign that read "Guns don't kill people....

    Sen. Bernie Sanders on Friday invoked President Donald Trump's name multiple times in response to a question about what advice he can give progressive leaders who have a tough time condemning noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Several House Democrats have come under fire in the last week for their association with Farrakhan, including Democratic National Committee vice chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), who recently earned a "Four Pinocchios" rating from the Washington Post Fact Checker concerning his interactions with the controversial Nation of Islam leader. Sanders sat down with CNN's Jake Tapper at the South by Southwest conference in Austin,...

    Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has called on Democratic counterpart Tom Perez to explain Rep. Keith Ellison's (D., Minn.) relationship with noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Ellison, the Democratic National Committee's vice chairman, claimed recently he hadn't had contact with Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, since 2006. However, the pair have been together at least three times since 2010. His untrue claims earned a "four Pinocchios" rating from the Washington Post fact checker. Questions over their relationship were reignited following anti-Semitic speech Farrakhan gave in February. The speech also criticized Ellison for having distanced himself from the...

    The Republican Jewish Coalition is calling for the resignation of seven Democratic members of Congress whom it claims are "connected" to controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The group describes him as a "known anti-Semite." Farrakhan has routinely spoke disparagingly about Jews over the years, as well as white people, in general. He was thrust into the mainstream spotlight again this week after excerpts from a speech he gave last week on the Nation of Islam's Saviour's Day surfaced online. During the speech, he once again described Jewish people -- who he says "are my enemy" -- in a...

    President Trump has once again surprised the national establishment. This week he announced his re-election campaign earlier than any president in history. Simultaneously, he announced Brad Parscale would be his campaign manager. Both these moves are a reminder of how intuitive and strategic Donald J. Trump is. These qualities are a big part of why he was elected to be our 45th president. Why are this week’s announcements so important? Because they express intent and demonstrate immediate implementation. First, President Trump is saying to any potential Republican challengers: “I will crush you.” The amount of money he will raise, the...

    The Supreme Court took a dim view Wednesday of Minnesota’s law banning voters from wearing political apparel to vote on Election Day, with liberal justices questioning where to draw the line and conservatives wondering who got to decide what is political in the first place. Minnesota said it has a legitimate state interest in ensuring decorum inside polling places and integrity during the election process. But Andrew Cilek, a Minnesota voter, contends the law is overly broad and almost prevented him from voting in the 2010 election because he wore a “Tea Party Patriots” T-shirt and a button asking poll...

    Orono Police Chief Correy Farniok said one juvenile was arrested at Orono High School Wednesday afternoon in connection to a pair of social media posts that caused a lockdown of Orono schools. Farniok said the juvenile arrested was one of two persons of interest who have been identified in the matter. He said both suspects, who were identified as students, were holed up in Orono High School during the lockdown. Police were informed around 10:57 a.m. Wednesday of a pair of threats made on social media threatening a shooting at Orono schools at noon. That led to a lockdown which...

    Of all the desperate and futile attempts at revisionist history, few are as careless as the attempt to destroy the reputation of one of the finest Supreme Court justices this country has ever produced. Now comes another volley. New York magazine has assembled "The Case for Impeaching Clarence Thomas." The author is longtime anti-Thomas journalist Jill Abramson. For more than 4,000 words, Abramson labors to relitigate Thomas accuser Anita Hill's dramatic loss in the court of public opinion. According to one poll at the time, 58 percent believed Thomas; only 24 percent believed Hill. Again the argument falls on its...

    White nationalist provocateurs, a pair of fake news sites, an army of Twitter bots and other cyber tricks helped derail Democratic Senator Al Franken last year, new research shows. While everyone has been focused on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election to support Donald Trump, the Franken takedown originated in—and was propelled by—a strategic online campaign with digital tentacles reaching to, of all places, Japan. Analysts have now mapped out how Hooters pinup girl and lad-mag model Leeann Tweeden's initial accusation against Franken became effective propaganda after right-wing black ops master Roger Stone first hinted at the allegation.
