    It had to be humiliating for the Minnesota State Patrol officers evidently ordered to stand down while a mob lassoed and ripped down the statue of Christopher Columbus on June 10 at the State Capitol. Activists were clearly given the green light, even though Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington had assured KSTP-TV reporter Tom Hauser the state property would be protected at all costs. Harrington’s empty promises and the state patrol’s toothless response left their credibility in the dust with the public property they were charged with protecting.

    MOSS POINT, Miss. (WLOX) - A Moss Point man says the mayor’s recent painting in front of City Hall is “racist” and that’s why he painted over part of it Wednesday morning.

He added that the fist is “racist and not needed in Moss Point.”

    DETROIT – Treatment with hydroxychloroquine cut the death rate significantly in sick patients hospitalized with COVID-19 – and without heart-related side-effects, according to a new study published by Henry Ford Health System. In a large-scale retrospective analysis of 2,541 patients hospitalized between March 10 and May 2, 2020 across the system’s six hospitals, the study found 13% of those treated with hydroxychloroquine alone died compared to 26.4% not treated with hydroxychloroquine. None of the patients had documented serious heart abnormalities; however, patients were monitored for a heart condition routinely pointed to as a reason to avoid the drug as a...

    CAIRO -- Noha, an Egyptian engineer, should feel lucky after winning a visa lottery that randomly selects people from a pool of more than 14 million applications for about 55,000 green cards that would let them live permanently in the United States. But the hopes she and her husband had of moving with their two children to New York vanished last week when President Donald Trump extended a ban on many green cards issued outside the United States to the end of the year, including the lottery’s “diversity visas,” which have been issued every year since 1990 to people from...

    Paul wrote earlier about the Minneapolis Effect. For those of us living in Minnesota, the effect is very real. But the Minnesota right is fighting back. My organization, Center of the American Experiment, has sponsored a poll that finds, among other things, that 85% of Minnesotans support law enforcement. We will soon begin a campaign to mobilize support behind law enforcement, including 38 billboards, radio ads, a social media campaign, a live webinar featuring Heather Mac Donald that we will be announcing soon, and more.

    “The job that I worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of everything,” she explained. Janover’s LinkedIn page reportedly listed her as an “incoming government and public business service analyst” at the U.K.-based accounting firm Deloitte, according to the New York Post. In the initial video, Janover said the next person who had “the sheer nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity, to say ‘All Lives Matter,’ I’ma stab you. I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters...
