No, it's called asylum-seeking, and it's been legal for a long time. Remember the words on Statute of Liberty, that once had meaning in the U.S.: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses . . ." As a 2nd generation American on one side, 3rd generation on the other side, immigrat…

I hope to have time to comment on the main points of this awful column of "whataboutism" (especially regarding misinformation being spread about Cong. Omar -- see good fact check here: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/18/us/politics/trump-ilhan-omar-fact-check.html).

Tom West writes about one of Trump's rare, real press conferences, but failed to mentioned that Trump intentionally called on Acosta (some say he did so in order to pick a fight, since there are so many "friendly" media in the audience) What West's piece ignores is the content of …

Since "Prof" Wenzel has published yet another of his stock-in-trade smear ads, here's an alternative approach, with one day until election day.

For a dramatically different take on what's at stake for this election -- in MN and the country -- please take a minute to watch this ad aired on last night's 60 Minutes, Michael Bloomberg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bliVbebfOHw&feature=youtu.be

Walter Mondale and Skip Humphrey (both former MN Attorney General office holders) have endorsed Keith Ellison for Attorney General, for any last-minute "deciders". Their endorsement in the Star Tribune can be found here: http://www.startribune.com/skip-humphrey-and-walter-mondale…
