Mayor Betsy Hodges: Minneapolis is
strong but undergoing transformation

Star Tribune [Minneapolis, MN], by Adam Belz

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 5/24/2017 12:12:14 AM

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy gave a wide-ranging State of the City speech Tuesday at a mosque in north Minneapolis, covering everything from Nicollet Mall and President Donald Trump to affordable housing and workforce development. Running for re-election in November, Hodges said the city must embrace the discomfort of transformation, a theme of her campaign, and work tirelessly to create “One Minneapolis” that “works for everyone,” and where everyone contributes to making the city work for everyone else. (Snip) Hodges repeated her commitment to resist Trump and stand in the way of his “attack and unfairly targeted policy” against Muslims. “When Donald Trump

Comments:
Never mind the Muslim terrorists caught in Minneapolis just the other day, or the little girls just killed and maimed by a Muslim terrorist in Manchester... Mayor Ding-a-Ling promises, at a mosque, to oppose the hateful agenda of Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, among her opponents in the upcoming mayoral race is one Aswar Rahman. Why not elect him instead and really embrace the new vision for the city?

The article says she was wearing white ankle socks as she gave this cozy little State of the City speech. How precious.

She is fiddling while Rome burns.

"... a Minneapolis that works for everyone..." (as long as you are not white, or a Christian, or an upholder of traditional American values.)

Was in the city recently. My impression...what a horrible , cold- blooded, place to live. I helped steer a blind man to his destination when many passed him by as he turned in circles, I helped a disabled vet with how service dog find a ride when the car rental wouldn´t rent him a car, as EVERYONE ELSE ignored him. Never want to go there ever again. You morons deserve your pathetic politicians.

Basically the mayor of Minneapolis has created a safe haven for Islamic terrorists in her own city. At some point in the future she will have blood on her hands when a terrorist attack originates from there.

Used to vacation 50 miles south of Mupples in the early 80s and was amazed by how the Somalis that had taken over most of the downtown area of what was always billed as an "All American City". No attempt to assimilate-drying fish on the roofs of high-rises and the smell of human excrement everywhere. That was over 35 years ago. Can only imagine what it´s like now and have no plans to find out.

I travel to Minneapolis frequently on business. It is inundated with Muslims. They are rude, pushy, and many obviously don´t shower. But we are talking about a State who elected a Big Time Wrestler as Governor and sent a comedian to represent them in the Senate. Avoid Minnesota if you can.

ICE agents eat at restaurant

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 5/26/2017 1:15:44     Post Reply
ICE agents apparently love a good breakfast, and it doesn’t matter who’s making it. United States Immigrations Customs and Enforcement (ICE) officers detained three members of the kitchen staff at a restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor, Mich., on Wednesday morning–but only after sitting down to eat some waffles. Sava Lelcaj-Farah, the owner of Sava’s restaurant, told MLive that the incident was “really sad,” and “scares the whole community.” (Snip) When they were done, they “went into the kitchen to apprehend one of our employees who wasn’t on at the time,” as they suspected he did not have the proper documentation.

Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone used a recent television appearance to accuse those on food stamps of using them to buy drugs. “Hell, people use food stamps to buy marijuana — that’s illegal — or cocaine, or whatever the hell else people use to get high,” he said. “How do we make sure that we don’t take a system that is well-intentioned that becomes badly abused?” His comments came during an interview with Fox News´ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” where he discussed the Trump administrations $4.1 trillion dollar budget, which includes a proposal to cut Medicaid by $800 billion over the

NHS England has told major trauma centres to prepare for a second terrorist attack this Bank Holiday weekend. The national clinical director for trauma Chris Moran urged staff in 27 cities to be ready for an incident, in a letter obtained by the Health Service Journal. (Snip) The letter asked that all staff had easy access to their major incident plan, as well as instructing them to carry identification at all times. They were also urged to ensure they knew what to do in case their hospital was placed on "lock down". Eighteen adults and 14 children are still receiving treatment in Manchester

The Manchester suicide bomber may have built a second device which is now in the hands of fellow jihadists, police fear. Officers who raided the home of Salman Abedi discovered a working bomb factory with a huge stash of explosive chemicals and other components. Security sources now believe that Abedi assembled the bomb himself after learning his trade in Libya. But the amount of material in his home has led to fears that he could have built more than one device and and distributed them to other British-based extremists. A security source told the Telegraph: "The worry is there was enough to

Gravesend, Brooklyn — A 12-year-old boy is in custody for allegedly punching an 80-year-old woman in the face and trying to set her on fire during an unprovoked attack outside her Brooklyn home, police said Wednesday.

He then allegedly punched her in the face with a closed fist, used a metal rod on her, and tried to light her coat on fire as she sat outside her house. (Snip) The owner of China Restaurant Inc.

The Obama administration knowingly let in at least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, a top senator said Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country. Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 persons who were caught crossing the border.

Los Angeles — A man acted strangely long before he caused a disturbance on a plane that prompted fighter jets to accompany it to Hawaii, but a lack of communication and an airline’s hesitancy to be caught on video booting a passenger could have played a role in allowing him to fly, experts say. Anil Uskanli, 25, of Turkey, had purchased a ticket at an airline counter in the middle of the night with no luggage and had been arrested after opening a door to a restricted airfield at Los Angeles International Airport. Airport police did not notify the airline, but

The first leg of President Trump’s planned border wall will cost an exorbitant $24.5 million per mile, according to the 2018 budget he submitted Tuesday that details a massive shake-up in immigration policy. (Snip) In his proposed budget, Mr. Trump says he is looking for ways to calculate the “net budgetary effects” of immigration programs and policy. “Once the net effect of immigration on the federal budget is more clearly illustrated, the American public can be better informed about options for improving policy outcomes and saving taxpayer resources,” the president said in the blueprint. “In that regard, the budget supports

The breach appears to have originated overseas and is currently the subject of an investigation undertaken by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, FDACS said in a statement.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee,
