Minneapolis Imposes Curfew During Rioting, But Exempts Muslims

A curfew was imposed on Minneapolis as a result of the BLM rioting but exempted all Muslims after U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar complained.

Officials in Minnesota imposed a curfew on Minneapolis as a result of the Black Lives Matter rioting this week but exempted all Muslims after U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar complained.

Black Lives Matter rioters erupted in Minneapolis after 20-year-old wanted criminal Daunte Wright died after being shot by a police officer ion Brooklyn Center, a northern suburb of Minneapolis. City Mayor Jacob Frey announced a state of emergency on Monday.

But Muslim-first Rep. Omar jumped into action to get officials to allow Muslims free movement, especially since Ramadan started last weekend.

“My office reached out to the Minneapolis Mayor and Governor’s offices to urge them to include an exemption to the curfew this evening for travel to and from Ramadan activities/prayer services” Omar Tweeted on Monday.

Not long after, Omar went back to Twitter to announce her victory, saying, “The Governor’s Executive Order was just announced with that exemption so that folks are able to observe the first night of Taraweeh this evening without fear of arrest.”

Meanwhile, as Minnesota has given Muslims the go ahead to enjoy free movement, Christians have been locked out of attending church until recently.

So, while American citizens are expected to be locked up in their homes over Black Lives Matter rioting, Minnesota is just fine with giving Muslims free movement.

Despite Federal Freakout, ‘J6’ Rally Remains Peaceful

The federal response to the event has turned out to be a joke.

Published

All week, we heard nothing but abject terror from the mainstream media.  They were completely convinced that there was trouble coming down the pike on The Beltway, and they were frothing at the mouth in hoping to blame it on the MAGA Movement.

But, despite their desperate and derivative dialogue, the “Justice for J6” rally went off without a hitch, foiling their naysaying narrative.

Early reports and videos emerging from the pro-Capitol-rioter “Justice for J6” rally indicate that the event has drawn “a few dozen” attendees, and many times that number of press and police.

On Saturday afternoon, videos began trickling out on social media showing the early stages of the event, organized to show support for those imprisoned over the Jan. 6 invasion of the Capitol, showing very high turnout — by cops and the media.

This, after weeks of fear mongering and facetious insults from the mainstream media.

In fact, the overzealousness of law enforcement wound up being a bit of an embarrassment.

Despite the turnout, the event drew a large law enforcement and media presence. Capitol Police said Friday they were working with over 27 agencies from around the region to secure the event.

This appears to reiterate the idea that the mainstream media’s vilification of Trump supporters has been largely inappropriate, and just another attempt at manufacturing outrage to bolster their ratings.

New Book Details How Biden Team Keeps POTUS from Unscripted Events

YIKES!

Published

The nation has known for a long time that Joe Biden’s public speaking isn’t his most endearing quality, and the pressures of the office of the President, (along with a predictable bit of aging), has certainly escalated this PR situation.

Biden is a gaffe machine, full of mismatched anecdotes and old-timey gibberish that often overshadows the gist of what he’s trying to say.  As such, his team has seemingly worked hard to keep the President out of situations in which he’s allowed to freestyle answers, and Biden himself has often left press conferences after telling reporters that he’d be “in trouble” if he stuck around for any more questions.

Now, a new book seems to indicate just what lengths his team is willing go in order to keep the narrative untainted by mishaps.

Top White House aides set up a “wall” to shield President Biden from unscripted events and long interviews amid fears of the president’s testiness and habit of mangling statements, according to a new book.

“Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa cited a number of incidents from the gaffe-prone president in the early days of his administration, including a back-and-forth with a CNN reporter for which he later apologized.

“That side of Biden — his tendency to at times be testy or mangle statements — was still with him and now part of his presidency,” the book says.

The policy seemed to be fairly codified.

In turn, a number of Biden aides told the reporters that Chief of Staff Ronald Klain and then-White House advisor Anita Dunn worked to prevent such incidents by keeping him away from “unscripted events or long interviews.”

“They called the effect ‘the wall,’ a cocooning of the president,” they wrote.

This unwillingness to allow the President to speak directly has wreaked havoc on Biden’s image as a leader, and his waning approval numbers are evidence of this.
