    WASECA, MINN. – After two years of living under the guard of the state, John LaDue returned to his home Wednesday afternoon under the watchful eyes of the media — to live under a skeptical glare of the community. Arrested as a 17-year-old with plans and some materials to carry off a massacre at the local school in April 2014, LaDue on Wednesday rode home a passenger in his dad’s car, emerging on the driveway a more robust 19-year-old clutching a few folders and paper.

  • Clinton Releases a Brutal Anti-Trump Ad

    May 5, 2016

    With Ted Cruz and John Kasich out of the race, Donald Trump has become the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton's campaign wasted no time switching to general election mode, releasing a web video criticizing Trump. But Clinton didn't do it in her own words; the ad is a compilation of unkind things Trump's fellow Republicans have said about him during the party's nomination campaign. It's harsh. Mitt Romney calls Trump a misogynist, Marco Rubio claims he's the most "vulgar person to ever aspire to the...
