6 Minnesota Democratic mayors endorse Trump, slam Biden as 'out of touch'

Six Democratic mayors from Minnesota's Iron Range endorsed President Trump's reelection Friday, signing an open letter that praised the president as a champion for working-class people and slammed Democratic nominee Joseph R. Biden as "Out of touch." "Today, we don't recognize the Democratic Party," the mayors wrote.

"It has been moved so far to the left it can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats. We didn't choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us." "Lifelong politicians like Joe Biden are out of touch with the working class, out of touch with what the country needs, and out of touch with those of us here on the Iron Range and in small towns like ours across our nation," the mayors wrote.

TOP STORIES 6 Minnesota Democratic mayors endorse Trump, slam Biden as 'out of touch' Hydroxychloroquine 'very safe,' says Dr. Scott Atlas; blasts 'garbage' medical studies Biden blames 'bystander' Trump for violence: 'He is president, whether he knows it or not' The mayors included Chris Swanson of Two Harbors, John Champa of Chisholm, Larry Cuffe of Virginia, Chuck Novak of Ely, Robert Vlaisavljevich of Eveleth, and Andrea Zupancich of Babbitt.

The letter coincided with a visit Friday by Vice President Mike Pence to the Clure Public Marine Terminal in Duluth, where Mr. Swanson and Mr. Cuffe joined Mr. Pence onstage outside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection warehouse.

"There's many people in northern Minnesota who truly are Republicans," Mr. Swanson said, describing a blurring of what had once been solid Democrat country, the Duluth News Tribune reported.

"They truly understand what's going on." "Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class," Mr. Cuffe said, the newspaper reported.

The president and vice president also thanked the mayors on Twitter. 

Biden Supporters Shoot 55 People in Chicago, Killing 10

Biden supporters shot 55 people in Chicago over the weekend, killing 10.

CHICAGO POLICE TRY TO ADDRESS VIOLENCE. Democrats in Chicago favor defunding the police department.

VIOLENT PROTESTERS MUST BE BIDEN SUPPORTERS. Chicago is just one of many Democrat-run cities across the country that have seen a substantial increase in violent crime, including rioting, looting, burning, and shootings.

Most of the people who live in Chicago are Democrats, especially black people.

Since people who are white and opposed to the violence are called Trump supporters, it's fair to say that the black shooters in this weekend's violent rampage are Biden supporters.

It stands to reason that the people burning down Democrat-run cities across the country are also Biden supporters.

Violent crimes and protests in Democrat-run cities by these Biden supporters are bound to continue until someone realizes that it may cost Joe Biden the election. 

India Says China’s Military Made Moves Near Disputed Border


  1. The disputed and undemarcated 3,500-kilometer (2,175-mile) border between India and China, referred to as the Line of Actual Control, stretches from the Ladakh region in the north to the Indian state of Sikkim.
  2. A banner erected by the Indian army stands near Pangong Tso lake near the India China border in India’s Ladakh area, on Sept.
  3. SRINAGAR, India—India said Monday its soldiers thwarted “provocative” movements by China’s military near a disputed border in the Ladakh region months into the rival nations’ deadliest standoff in decades.
  4. According to some Indian and Chinese strategic experts, India’s move exacerbated existing tensions with China, leading to the deadly June border clash. 

Kamala Harris ripped for flip-flopping on rioters after she asked for donations to bail them out of jail

Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris asked supporters in June to donate to Minnesota rioters who were arrested, in a tweet now earning her criticism after condemning rioters' violence this weekend.

Over the weekend, Harris and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden condemned the violence seen in recent days, specifically in Portland, Oregon, where one person was shot dead Saturday night.

Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton resurrected Harris's June tweet Sunday, slamming it as a flip-flop on her support of rioters who have caused destruction in multiple major cities across the country.

"Kamala Harris helped violent rioters in Minnesota get out of jail to do more damage," Cotton tweeted.

Donald Trump Jr. also took issue with her June tweet.

Others have also echoed the sentiments of Cotton and Trump Jr. Support for Black Lives Matter protests has been slipping in recent months, according to a poll out of Wisconsin.

Forty-eight percent of Wisconsin residents support Black Lives Matter protests and 48% disapprove, according to a Marquette Law School poll conducted between Aug. 8 and Aug. 9. 

CDC: 94% of Covid-19 deaths had underlying medical conditions

The Centers for Disease Control released information showing how many people who died from COVID-19 had comorbidities or underlying conditions as they are sometimes referred to by doctors.

Conditions described as comorbidities are often chronic or long-term conditions.

Other names to describe comorbid conditions are coexisting or co-occurring conditions and sometimes also "Multimorbidity" or "Multiple chronic conditions."

Comorbidity and underlying conditions can both be used to describe conditions that exist in one person at the same time.

Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019.

For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.

The following are the top underlying medical conditions linked with COVID-19 deaths. 

Kenosha Police Reveal How Many of Those Arrested Weren't From City

Kenosha Police revealed that a majority of the individuals arrested during the riots that rocked the city following the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake were not from Kenosha.

"As of 12:30 p.m. August 30, 2020 a total of 175 people have been arrested," the department said.

"Of the people processed during this week, 102 listed addresses from outside of Kenosha."

People were arrested for curfew violations, carrying concealed weapons, burglary, and drug possession, the police said.

The information regarding the 'out-of-town' rioters comes as Republican lawmakers call for investigations into who is funding the protests across the country.

The Justice Department needs to open an investigation into who is funding these violent riots.

In addition to Rep. Ken Buck's request, Sen. Rand Paul, who was attacked with his wife while leaving the Republican National Convention on Thursday, said the FBI should make arrests and look into the "Interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines." 

Economic Collapse Is Imminent If We Can't Stop Our Deficit Spending Spree

With our attention now focused largely on riots, what if one of the most important issues threatening our economic future, and thereby our nation, is being largely minimized or ignored? Have we neglected the risk of our national debt?

Congress is negotiating another round of bailout spending that will likely cost between $1 trillion and $3 trillion.

The debt clock now stands at $26,647,860,701,599 as I type this, soaring upward at a dizzying pace, and critically important "Off balance sheet" liabilities for future obligations such as Social Security and Medicare have been estimated at triple that number.

A Gallup poll showed that from 2010 to 2019, when the debt mushroomed from $14 trillion to $23 trillion, the percentage of voters who cited the federal budget deficit as an issue they worry "a great deal" about fell from 64 percent to 50 percent.

Who can contextualize so many digits? Does it matter, when the median individual income in the United States is roughly $34,000, and each taxpayer, 151 million of us, owes $176,000 to cover the debt?

Our debt-to-GDP ratio, the common metric to assess taxpayers' ability to cover the nation's debt with productivity and output, is at a record 136 percent and climbing.

What effect will the increased cost of servicing our debt has on our economic growth? 

Obama's Monster Has Escaped the Lab, Now What?

For the eight years of his presidency, President Barack Obama nurtured the Hydra-headed monster now rampaging through America's cities.

At a black church in Jackson's Chicago, he scolded black absentee fathers who "Abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men." Obama made the traditionally conservative argument that fatherless children were five times more likely to grow up poor, nine times more likely to drop out of school, and twenty times more likely to get into serious trouble than children who grow up with both parents.

Although the American media did their best to ignore the controversy, Canadian Suzanne Goldenberg, writing for Britain's left-leaning Guardian, reported that Jackson's remarks "Were mirrored on the blogosphere in an outpouring of anger against the campaign's moves to the right." From Jackson's perspective, Obama was neither progressive enough, nor black enough.

For four weeks, the media constructed an aggressively false narrative about the shooting, perhaps best summed up by Miami congresswoman Frederica Wilson: "Trayvon was hunted down like a rabid dog. He was shot in the street. He was racially profiled." For four weeks, Obama said nothing.

Finally, on that March morning, Obama said for the ages, "My main message is to the parents of Trayvon. You know, if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." In projecting Trayvon as a "Son," Obama strongly suggested that all black children, even the president's imagined son, were equally vulnerable to the predations of white men.

True to form, Obama spoke of Ferguson's Michael Brown much as he had of Trayvon Martin, as a victim.

In 2012, even in 2014, Obama still had the power to ask Black America to look within. 

California Is Coming for You: Its energy, tax and regulatory failures are the Democrats’ ideal for national policy.

California is an early glimpse for the rest of the country of a blackout-rolling, water-deprived, tax-hiking, spending-spiking one-party state longing for its old incandescent glow.

The U.S. may flip to one party rule; California is already there.

California is No. 3 in the nation in water prices.

Kiss incandescent lightbulbs goodbye-most were outlawed in California as of Jan. 1.

Of course, California spends money like a drunken sailor.

California is trying nonetheless, especially with innovation dynamos Uber and Lyft.

So what do the 300,000 Uber and 200,000 Lyft drivers actually want, as opposed to what California says they want? Like any good tech experiment, let's do an A/B test. 

The Portland Clashes: Trump should tell his supporters to stay away from Antifa protests.

The main failure here lies with Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Gov. Kate Brown, who have consistently indulged the rioters.

Every night for more than 90 days, Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters have demonstrated in Portland.

When President Trump sent federal law enforcement agents to Portland this summer to protect federal buildings, the mayor and Governor blamed Mr. Trump for the violent clashes.

When federal agents stood down, the violence continued against Portland police and property.

At a Sunday press conference the Portland police chief said his department lacked the resources to separate the fighting factions, but the feckless Mr. Wheeler offered little more than a plea against violence and rhetoric about reform to address racial injustice.

"The big backlash going on in Portland cannot be unexpected after 95 days of watching and incompetent Mayor admit that he has no idea what he is doing. The people of Portland won't put up with no safety any longer. The Mayor is a FOOL. Bring in the National Guard!" he tweeted.

He's right about the National Guard, but Mr. Trump would help Portland and his own political cause more if he called for calm on all sides. 

Claims by team Obama that Trump is a Russian asset not supported after string of investigations

Rep. Adam Schiff says Russia is helping Trump's campaign again Black Republican Kimberly Klacik's campaign ad stuns public, goes viral John Thompson, legendary Georgetown coach, dead at 78 President Obama's most senior intelligence leaders made that claim on their paid cable news appearances.

"The Trump campaign gave the impression of being interested in using Russia's interference for their own benefit. Trump was not an agent of Putin, and there is no evidence of collusion. But the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, which the Trump team attended expecting to receive damning information on Secretary Clinton they knew was coming from the Russian government, understandably raised suspicion. The Senate report confirmed FSB-connected lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya never produced this information and instead lobbied on behalf of lifting the Magnitsky Act sanctions," Mr. Hoffman said.

The report quotes her: "With some I was briefly met by chance, while others there was a much longer relationship due to mutual affection. For example, Trump is a person who I like very much. I cannot call him a friend, because we do not call up and do not meet daily, but perhaps we would live in the same city, we would communicate more closely. Let's just say we are on a friendly footing." Peter O'Brien, former executive with Russia's state-run Rosneft petroleum-gas firm, said Mr. Geovanis attended a holiday party in 2015 and told a Trump story.

" Regardless of Mr. Trump's possible love life in Moscow, the committee's final report findings are devoid of evidence that the president is a Russian spy, informant or intelligence asset.

James R. Clapper, former director of national intelligence, said in December 2017 that Mr. Trump is a Russian intelligence asset.

"Source close to TRUMP campaign however confirms regular exchange with Kremlin has existed for at least 8 years, including intelligence fed back to Russia on oligarchs' activities in US," Mr. Steele said of Mr. Trump in a dossier memo.

No report suggests that Mr. Trump was feeding the Kremlin intelligence, much less for eight years. 

Media Largely Ignores Trump's Historic Middle East Peace Deal

The left and the news media largely have ignored the Trump administration's role in negotiating the recent peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

First, can you just explain what this means that Israel and the United Arab Emirates have established this peace deal and what has actually changed now about their relationship?

As we know, there has been a long history of Middle East conflict and Israel is surrounded by hostile nations that from Day One wanted to eliminate Israel from the planet Earth.

As we know, almost every U.S. president before President Trump have taken on peace negotiation, tried to broke peace negotiations with Israel and Arab nations for decades to come, and no one has been successful.

He really persuaded [Benjamin] Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, to say, "You need to stop annexation activity." Which Netanyahu did and that really paved the way for [and] eventually lead to this peace deal.

Allen: You mentioned Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he's not very popular among Israel's media.

Of course the Palestinians rejected the peace deal the Trump administration rolled out last year outright and they have rejected every single peace deal in the last eight decades.
