    With white women more desperate for attention than ever before, some of them followed through with the #GoBaldForBLM challenge, shaving their heads for Black Lives Matter despite the fact that the entire stunt appears to have been the result of a 4chan troll. #GoBaldForBLM has been trending on Twitter all day, and while much of the hashtag is dominated by people questioning its authenticity, some women do appear to have fallen for it. “The only thing I care about today, tomorrow and in the future is #blacklivesmatter. #goBaldforBLM,” tweeted one woman alongside a picture of her shaved head.

    The sight of looters dragging young children into Target to grab things they did not earn, did not purchase, did not DESERVE had a similar effect on me, though the lynching was far more grotesque. But WAS it, really? The horrific murder of one person vs. the murder of a city, the lost livelihood of thousands, of the end of the law and order that guarantees civilization? Governor Walz, don’t give me your mealymouthed platitudes about how “it’s not worth the loss of one life” to spare hundreds of millions of dollars in infrastructure, save thousands of small businesses, preserve...

    The Minneapolis City Council president will vote to abolish the city's police department for a "transformative new model of public safety." On Thursday, Lisa Bender, the Minneapolis City Council president, committed to abolishing law enforcement in the city, which is home to approximately 430,000 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. "Yes. We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety," Bender said in response to Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and another member of the city council. **SNIP** In an interview with local...

    Why did so many evangelicals turn out to vote for Donald Trump, a serial philanderer with questionable conservative credentials who seems to defy Christian values with his every utterance? To a reporter like Sarah Posner, who has been covering the religious right for decades, the answer turns out to be far more intuitive than one might think. In this taut inquiry, Posner digs deep into the radical history of the religious right to reveal how issues of race and xenophobia have always been at the movement’s core, and how religion often cloaked anxieties about perceived threats to a white, Christian...
  • Appeals Court Continues Halt on Expanding Voting by Mail in Texas

    A federal appeals court on Thursday continued to keep on hold any expansion of mail voting in Texas, where President Donald Trump has cheered on a fight against relaxing balloting rules amid the coronavirus pandemic. The decision by 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans is not the last word on the matter, but it stops, for now, a lower-court ruling that had opened the door for Texas' 16 million registered voters to cast ballots by mail. The case remains before the court with primary runoff elections in Texas, which are set for July 14, now less than...

    DREXEL HILL, Pa. (CBS) - A suspect is under arrest, accused of selling dynamite linked to some of the 100 ATM explosions that have rattled the Delaware Valley. The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office on Wednesday announced charges against Talib Crump. Crump is accused of selling dynamite sticks on social media and allegedly told undercover police officers during a sting that dynamite sticks are “better than bullets” for robbing ATMs. State prosecutors say Crump provided some of the explosive products that have been used to blow up ATMs across Philadelphia, a pattern that has since only intensified. **SNIP** At an earlier...

    The Senate’s top Democrat compared the Trump administration’s use of the military to protect the Lincoln Memorial from protester damage to the 1989 Chinese government crackdown and killing of demonstrators in Tiananmen Square. “Rows of camouflaged troops standing at attention on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, like an occupying force defending a critical position,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a Senate floor speech Wednesday. “When you see the image of troops dressed for combat, flanking the Lincoln Memorial, an altar to freedom, you cannot help but think of Tiananmen Square.” President Trump ordered the D.C. National Guard...

    Well, it’s former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s day to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Russian collusion fiasco. And it’s not going very well. Well, for starters, Rosenstein doesn’t feel that disgraced ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe lied to him. McCabe was fired because he lied. He, like Robert Mueller, also appeared to put the second act of this clown show on autopilot. As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, Rosenstein was either incompetent or complicit in this whole witch hunt. He also said that knowing what he knows now, he would not have signed off on the...

    After a family member who lives above her jewelry store heard a commotion, Yolanda Zuno rushed to downtown Aurora to try and protect her shop during unrest in the city’s center Sunday. By the time she arrived around 7:30 p.m., she was shocked to see the windows of Aurora Jewelry, 29 N. Broadway, were smashed. Zuno is now estimating the store lost between $800,000 and $900,000 during the looting, including items taken and damage to the shop during the unrest that is part of the fallout from the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25. After breaking into...

    A search of publicly available material suggests several of Surgisphere’s employees have little or no data or scientific background. An employee listed as a science editor appears to be a science fiction author and fantasy artist. Another employee listed as a marketing executive is an adult model and events hostess. The Guardian has since contacted five hospitals in Melbourne and two in Sydney, whose cooperation would have been essential for the Australian patient numbers in the database to be reached. All denied any role in such a database, and said they had never heard of Surgisphere. Desai did not respond...

    Trailer truck driver Bogdan Vechirko has been defamed by House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler and disparaged by Governor Tim Walz. Driving his rig on Highway 35W in Minneapolis, he was surprised to come upon “protesters” packing all lanes of the road in front of him. If he had wanted to hurt them, he could have taken them out like bowling pints. Instead, Vechirko blared his airhorn and brought his rig to a stop before he hit anyone. “Protesters” dragged Vechirko from the cab of his truck and commenced pummeling him. While Vechirko was arrested and taken into custody on a...

    The death of George Floyd and the resulting national protests set a somber tone as the Texas Democratic Convention kicked off Monday, even as the annual meeting of state Democrats moved online because of COVID-19. One by one, during a livestreamed roll call of Texas democratic leaders in the executive committee meeting that preceded opening speeches, voice after voice answered, “Black Lives Matter.” And party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa took up that message in his remarks to the committee. Hinojosa compared the outrage over Floyd’s death to what he had seen as a high school student in 1968, following the assassinations...
