    A 55-year-old Eden Prairie man has been charged with making terroristic threats and carrying or possessing a pistol without a permit in a public place in connection to an incident at McDonald's last month in which he allegedly displayed a gun during an altercation with a group of teenagers. Court records show Lloyd Edward Johnson was charged Monday in Hennepin County. The first charge is a felony. The second is a gross misdemeanor. He is scheduled to be back in court on Jan. 10. “These teens were racially and religiously profiled by both the gunman and the McDonald’s,” Jaylani Hussein,...

    Beto O’Rourke is calling for the removal of a controversial Confederate plaque hanging in the Texas State Capitol building, tweeting on Tuesday to “take it down today.” The plaque contains the Children of the Confederacy’s creed, which is a statement that pledges “to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is, that the War between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery).”

    The Boston Celtics' early season struggles continued on Wednesday night with a 117-109 loss to the New York Knicks. Down by as much as 26, the Celtics made a big comeback in the fourth quarter, but fell short, largely due to some clutch shooting by Trey Burke. Now just 9-9 on the season, there will be plenty to discuss in regards to the Celtics' inability to meet expectations. At the same time, there will also be plenty of discussion about one of Kyrie Irving's postgame quotes, in which he made it clear he doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving. MassLive's Tom Westerholm was...
  • Ocasio-Cortez Suggests Ditching Columbus Day For Election Day Holiday

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the incoming U.S. representative from New York City, has an idea that could make voting easier: Take Columbus Day off the federal holiday list and replace it with Election Day. In a tweet Saturday, the progressive Democrat wondered why Columbus Day is a federal holiday while Election Day, when we engage in perhaps our most important civic duty, is not. Columbus Day, after all, celebrates a man who never actually set foot in what is now the United States and who certainly did not “discover” America. Daily Mail editor David Martosko tried to make a joke about Ocasio-Cortez...

    As if having your team lose to the lowly Buffalo Bills isn't enough, one New York Jets fan's day got even worse on Sunday after he rear-ended a car, failed a sobriety test and had an open bottle of whiskey and suspected marijuana in his car, police said. His reason for his brush with the law was simple. "I drank too much because the Jets suck," Christopher Greyshock, 57, of West Milford, told police during his sobriety test, according to a release from the Wayne Police. Officers there were called to the corner of Alps Road and Route 23 at...

Macron defended organizations like the European Union and the United Nations, hailing their ideals despite their “setbacks” over the years. He called for a new era of science-built progress.

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today called on Senate Republicans and the White House to allow the FBI to follow the facts where they lead and hold off on scheduling a vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court until Congress and the American people learn what the FBI uncovers.  In a speech on the Senate floor, Durbin also called out Republicans who have been calling Dr. Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault against Judge Kavanaugh a “smear,” or a calculated and orchestrated political hit.“I believe Dr. Ford,...

    "God is on OUR side!" Rep. Maxine Waters, told a cheering crowd in Los Angeles on Saturday. Those who defend Trump, she said, "know what they're doing is wrong" and Waters urged her followers to harass them. "They're not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they're not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they're not going to be able to shop at a department store," said the Congressional Black Caucus veteran. "The people are going to turn on them, they're going to protest, they're going to absolutely harass them." "Mr. President," yelled Waters,...

    A day after Robert De Niro received a standing ovation at the Tony Awards for dissing President Trump, the actor was cheered again in Canada — when he apologized for the Commander in Chief’s “idiotic behavior.” The “Casino” star’s comments came Monday during a groundbreaking for the high-end Japanese restaurant Nobu in Toronto. “I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,” De Niro said to applause. “It’s a disgrace, and I apologize to [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau, too, and the other people at the G-7. It’s disgusting.” Over the weekend, Trump...

    Robert De Niro had a few choice words for President Donald Trump while the legendary actor was on stage at Sunday’s Tony Awards to introduce Bruce Springsteen’s musical performance. “I’m going to say one thing, F— Trump,” De Niro said while pumping his fists in the air. “It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s f— Trump.” The political sentiment earned De Niro a standing ovation from the crowd at Radio City Music Hall, while CBS scrambled to bleep the audio on the live telecast. After the audience settled, De Niro got back to talking about Springsteen, who received a special...

    Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a former FOX News contributor, told Anderson Cooper on Wednesday that he is "convinced" Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin has some type of "grip" on President Trump. "I am convinced that Vladimir Putin has some a grip on President Trump," Peters said on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. "And, Anderson, when I first learned of the Steele dossier, it just rang true to me, because that’s how the Russians do things. And before he became a candidate or president, Donald Trump was the perfect target for Russian intelligence." "Here is someone who has no self-control, a...

    Yesterday Ed Morrissey wrote about Joy Reid’s support for a 9/11 Truther film and I wrote about her Photoshop of Sen. John McCain as the Va. Tech shooter. Both items were uncovered from her old blog, the one she recently claimed was hacked. The hackers must have been busy because yesterday the Federalist also uncovered several blog posts suggesting Reid is not a big fan of Israel. In one post she agreed with former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when he suggested Israel should be moved to Europe: I hate to admit that Mr. Amadinejad has a point … but...

    Actress Alyssa Milano attended an anti-NRA protest in Dallas yesterday. Milano, a child actress known for her work in series TV, tweetet her opposition to the NRA, suggesting people vote for candidates who received no NRA money. In video captured by Ben Howe, NRA member Will Haraway asked Milano’s security if he was armed and the man clearly wasn’t amused by the question. “I’m going to ask you to leave,” the guard said repeatedly, physically backing Haraway up by getting in his face. “How far do I have to go?” Haraway asked. “I’m going to need you on the sidewalk,”...

    Fennec foxes eat rodents, insects, birds, rabbits, and eggs, but this one doesn’t. For years, vegan blogger Sonia Sae has been raising her pet fox Jumanji on a vegan diet, and it has developed all sorts of health problems. Recently, however, a few people worked hard to spread the word about this behavior they call abusive, and the internet is infuriated. According to experts, a fennec’s diet in the wild is comprised of about 90% animals and insects while the remaining 10% consists of various plants they dig up. Naturally, they need a lot of protein when living in captivity...
