    This is not a spoof. Richard Painter, a Democrat, is running for the Senate in Minnesota. Somehow he has managed to perfectly encapsulate everything that personifies the current left-wing progressive party. It is the perfect ad to represent all Democrats in 2018. Watch:

    The venue for President Donald Trump's visit to Duluth was changed Friday to accommodate the crowds that are expected, according to a release from the Minnesota GOP. The rally will be moved to the AMSOIL Arena. The rally was originally scheduled at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the event begins at 6:30 p.m. The last time Trump visited Minnesota was in November 2016, when he made an appearance at a Minneapolis-St. Paul airport hangar during his presidential campaign.

    The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a Minnesota law banning voters from wearing political apparel to the polls, saying it was too draconian in stifling Americans’ First Amendment rights. The 7-2 decision said it may be possible for states to restrict stridently political T-shirts and buttons, but the justices said Minnesota didn’t justify why its law needed to be so broad.
  • Ellison, 1st Muslim in Congress, running for Minnesota AG

    06/05/2018 4:02:07 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 23 replies
    ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, has filed papers to run for Minnesota attorney general. Ellison, also the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, filed Tuesday just hours ahead of a deadline. Ellison will keep his post with the national party. Ellison is in his sixth term representing a reliably Democratic Minneapolis-area seat. But he was lured into Minnesota's attorney general race after the incumbent, Lori Swanson, jumped into the governor's race on Monday. Ellison says it was attorneys general who led the fight against President Donald Trump's ban on travelers...
  • Minnesota Woman's Obituary Takes Startling Turn (Whoa!)

    06/05/2018 12:36:39 PM PDT · by MplsSteve · 149 replies
    An obituary exposing a woman's long-ago affair in western Minnesota has captured the eyes of many this week. Kathleen Dehmlow died May 31, and the Redwood Falls Gazette published an obituary citing wrongdoings in her life. The piece starts out conventionally, beginning with "Kathleen Dehmlow (Schunk) was born on March 19, 1938, to Joseph and Gertrude Schunk of Wabasso." The post goes on to state she married Dennis Dehmlow at St. Anne's in Wabasso, and they had two children -- Gina and Jay -- the authors of this obituary. Then, the details follow: In 1962, she became pregnant by her...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is expected to make a last-minute entry into the race for Minnesota attorney general on Tuesday, according to two people familiar with his plans. “I will make a decision tomorrow because it’s the filling deadline,” Ellison said, not disputing that he is likely to enter the election. Ellison has been in Congress since 2007, and served as deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee since last year, as a leader of the Bernie Sanders wing of the party. But he’s been chafing for months at both roles: being in the minority in Congress and being subsumed...

    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison said at a Democratic event Monday that Republicans doing “Bible studies” in prisons is hurting Democrats’ chances at winning voters. “You know, back when I was in Minnesota State Legislature, I got the impression that maybe Democrats could possibly have an advantage with folks in this area who might vote for us,” Ellison said. “Not true. We will have to fight for their vote like we do with every other vote because I learned that a lot of Republicans will go to jails and do Bible studies and other things.”

    On July 4, 1960, the Eugene (Ore.) Register-Guard rang in Independence Day with a dire Associated Press report by one Norma Gauhn headlined “American Dialects Disappearing.” The problem, according to “speech experts,” was the homogenizing effect of “mass communications, compulsory education, [and] the mobility of restless Americans.” These conformist pressures have only intensified in the half-century since the AP warned “that within four generations virtually all regional U.S. speech differences will be gone.” And so as we enter the predicted twilight of regional American English, it’s no surprise that publications as venerable as the Economist now confirm what our collective...

    The Washington Post ^ | May 15, 2018 | Philip Bump
    Shortly before the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump’s communications adviser Jason Miller proclaimed that both Michigan and New Mexico were in play. In both states, Miller said, internal polls showed a “dead heat,” and he predicted that campaigning in both places would spike. In Michigan, of course, that prediction was borne out. Trump won the state by the skin of his teeth, 11,000 votes. In New Mexico, though, he got blown out, losing by eight percentage points. This story seems pertinent now because of another prediction by another Trump campaign staff member focused on a different election. According to Axios,...

    It is certainly a contender. Fox 9 television uncovers a far-reaching scandal: last year, more than $100 million in cash left the Twin Cities airport in carry-on luggage, bound for the Middle East and Africa: This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on. On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out...

    In the Democratic Party’s reckoning following the election of Donald Trump, an unlikely feud has erupted inside an organization at the heart of the progressive movement. Earlier this year, the board of directors of Wellstone Action — an influential training group formed after Sen. Paul Wellstone’s death — dumbfounded Minnesota Democrats when it voted the late senator’s sons off the governing board. The ouster came after the sons, Mark and David Wellstone, raised concerns about overspending in areas of the organization’s budget — and after a dispute over the direction and priorities of the group. -snip - David Wellstone and...

    A video posted online Monday shows a Democratic Party leader wearing a T-shirt calling for an end to U.S. borders while participating in a local May Day parade in Minnesota last Friday. Democratic National Committee deputy chair Keith Ellison, D-Minn., wore a black shirt that read, "Yo no creo en fronteras." In English, that sentence translates to, "I don't believe in borders." Ellison, a progressive Democrat, said in March he supports a new type of welfare proposal that would have the government pay people a basic salary if technological advancements put them out of work. "I personally do think that...

    High-tax states face a choice: reduce taxes or lose taxpayers. Stephen Moore and Art Laffer forecast in the Wall Street Journal the loss of 800,000 California and New York residents over the next three years. The exodus, the economics experts say, comes because of the tax bill, which limits the state and local tax (SALT) deduction to $10,000, passed in December. Previously, the feds forced no monetary limit on filers. California taxes individuals earning $1 million or more at a rate of 13.3 percent. New York levies an 8.8 percent rate upon individuals making a similar amount of money annually....

    School officials and elected leaders in Ramsey County are coming together in a first-of-its-kind program in Minnesota meant to help keep young people out of jail. The Ramsey County Attorney's Office says it handled 2,748 juvenile cases in 2017, which included crimes ranging from missed curfews to assaults. "Where are we going wrong with these kids," asked Scott Williams, the deputy county manager for the safety and justice service team. "Where did we miss an opportunity early in their lives to keep them out of the criminal justice system?" Now Ramsey County, the City of St. Paul, St. Paul Public...

    Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis is dropping its refugee resettlement and adoption programs and diving deeper into its other work, especially programs combating homelessness and helping at-risk children. CEO Tim Marx unveiled the new priorities this week. The dramatic pivot comes as Catholic Charities, which over its 150 years has been one of the Twin Cities’ most influential charitable organizations, saw participation in its adoption program decline and the Trump administration’s immigration policies led to a slump in the number of refugees arriving in Minnesota. At the same time, Marx said, Catholic Charities has seen demand for other...

A funny thing happened to the #MeToo movement in the Democrat Party. While #MeToo burned a fiery trail through the media, leaving behind the wrecked careers of top talent, after suffering some initial losses, the Democrats built a firewall by ruthlessly targeting activists. Their approach was eerily similar to that of Harvey Weinstein....
