Startups Key to Minnesota Post-Virus Economic Recovery

First, I’d just note that we gathered state leaders, partners and startups from across the state last week for a virtual event to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Launch Minnesota, a program designed to accelerate startups. You can find out more in Launch Minnesota’s First-Year Progress Report. I’d like to share a message I wrote – which appeared in the Star...

 

Letter to the Editor - "DELUSIONAL DONALD"

Congratulations to our President-elect Joe Biden and our Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their comfortable, convincing victory over the truly terrible, corrupt racist Republican Trump-Pence ticket. America is back, and diabolical Donald Trump is done! Like usual, dishonest Donald Trump and his dishonorable, dimwitted sycophants are lying nonstop to the American public,...

 

Trump wins another election... just for the wrong candidate!

Monday 9 November 2020 - The personal brand of Donald Trump. It's unmissable. Unapologetic. 100 percent Marmite (you either love it or hate it) – and according to leading brand strategist, George James Deeb, CEO of Stand Out, it's exactly what handed Joe Biden the keys to the White House. Yes, that's right. Trump stands 2-0...

 

Successful Voter Registration Drive at Red Lake

It was Friday October 9, 2020. I came to Red Lake Nation to witness the impressive Voter Registration Drive going on, a drive that registered roughly 5,500 new Red Lake voters. Yes, you read that right, 5,500 first time Red Lake voters. Success was due to the efforts of scores of Red Lake member canvassers...in a friendly...

 

A Tour of the New Red Lake Community Center - P2

It was Friday October 9 when I returned to Red Lake. It was one day shy of six months, my last visit being the March 10, Tribal Council meeting. It is the longest time without a visit in 26 years by far. COVID kept this Gichi-mookomaan in Bemijigamaag for long time with all events and powwows cancelled or postponed. The first...

Covid-19 May be the "Final Nail in the Coffin" for Rural Hospitals

ST. PAUL, Minn. — With the nation’s attention riveted on Covid-19, the Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) says the closures of the nation’s hospitals—170 closures of rural hospitals in the last 15 years and growing—is not getting the attention it should be receiving. “Patients in rural America are losing access to hospital care. They’re losing access...

 

States Should Follow Florida's Footsteps and Reopen

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) supports Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to reopen the state’s economy on September 25 after he consulted public health officials. Governor DeSantis’ latest executive order bars local governments from enforcing restaurant and bar closures, and bans fines and fees tied to local COVID-19 compliance...

 

Whatever Removes Donald Trump-a Miserable Bastard-From Public Life Is Good

“First and foremost, I pray for a speedy recovery for President Trump and the First Lady.” Okay. I got that out of the way. That lead is a quote of what virtually every pundit and politician has said this morning upon learning of the COVID diagnosis of Donald and Melania Trump. Indeed, it is reasonable to think that many of those people also spoke with those quotation...

 

Before We Can Have Anti-Racist Classrooms, Teacher Preparation Needs an Overhaul

Read the introduction to this essay, "Teachers Can Take on Anti-Racist Teaching. But Not Alone," by Education Week staff writer Madeline Will. In college, I was a history major, yet I learned more about the Black experience from reading books than I ever did in school. Sadly, this is also the case for many students, and poor teacher-preparation programs steeped in...

 

What Abolishing the Police Means to Me: A Student's Perspective

Read the introduction to this essay by Education Week staff writer Corey Mitchell, "Are Strained Police Relations With Black Teens a Solvable Problem?" Policing in America has roots in the slave patrols designed to end resistance or uprisings within the slave community. I acknowledge this history so you can understand the inherent fear Black people already have toward the...

 

Amy Coney Barrett is supremely well qualified for the high court

Like many other liberals, I'm devastated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death, which opened the way for President Donald Trump to nominate a third Supreme Court justice in his first term. And I'm revolted by the hypocrisy of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's willingness to confirm Trump's nominee after refusing to even...

 

'I'm Only 1 Person': Teachers Feel Torn Between Their Students And Their Own Kids

I catch Patricia Stamper with a Zoom meeting going in the background and a child at her knee asking for attention. Stamper works as a teacher's assistant for special education students in the Washington, D.C., public schools. These days, her virtual classroom is at home - and so is her toddler, who has a genetic disorder called...

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is proud to participate in Welcoming Week September 12-20, a national initiative to celebrate and affirm the importance of inclusivity and connections for immigrants, refugees and long-term residents of Minnesota. As an agency, we focus on workforce and economic development and know firsthand the positive...

 

The Big Picture: Projecting Confidence

It was revealed this week that, according to journalist Bob Woodward’s new book, Rage, President Trump knew the potential severity of the coronavirus back in early February. "This is deadly stuff," the president said in a recorded interview Feb. 7. "You just breathe the air, and that's how it's passed. And so that's a very tricky one. That's a very delicate one. It's also...

 

Workforce Development Efforts Will Help Rebuild a More Equitable Minnesota

September is Workforce Development Month – and never in recent memory have investments in our state’s workforce been more important. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on jobs and employment in Minnesota. Our state’s unemployment rate as of July is at 7.7%, down more than two percentage points from May, but still more than twice what it was in July 2019, when it was...

 

Who's a hero in the Trump era? Possibly Wilma Mankiller, Will Rogers, Jim Thorpe, Sacagawea

The Trump administration is moving forward with names for the president's proposed National Garden of Heroes. The list at this point is largely political; only Republican governors have submitted names for consideration. And one possibility is Donald J. Trump. The administration is leaving open the possibility of a statue of Trump himself in the Trump-created statue park after...

 

The moral rot of Trump and his enablers has spread to the core

As Donald Trump's chief strategist in 2016, Steve Bannon helped shape Trump's "America First" campaign. Now, Bannon is inadvertently helping to test Trump's 2020 reelection message: "Me First." On the eve of this week's Republican National Convention, federal authorities arrested Bannon aboard a Chinese billionaire's $28...

ST. PAUL, Minn. — In opposition to government-mandated community masking, Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) is announcing the launch of a nationwide “Face Freedom” campaign. The campaign includes: • “Face Freedom Fridays”- a campaign to fill social media with photos of smiling faces • FaceFreedom.org • #FaceFreedom hashtag • TRUTH about Face Masks...

 

A brief look at the Crazy Horse Memorial taking shape in South Dakota

When asked where you might find the largest face in the US, one might think of the Statue of Liberty, whose face is eight feet tall, or better yet, Mount Rushmore, which depicts the visages of four US presidents at around 60 feet or so. However, the real answer lies not far from the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. In fact,...

 

"WHERE IS BARRON TRUMP?"

Demented Donald Trump idiotically insists local school boards should illegally force your vulnerable children back into crowded classrooms unsafely as the Trump-caused COVID-19 catastrophe only continues to get worse, while on permanent vacation Trump golfs endlessly at the taxpayers’ expense. Delusional Donald continues to claim the coronavirus will simply “...disappear,...

 

It's time to declare an education emergency

We are facing an undeclared education emergency. When we closed schools six months ago, Minnesota already suffered one of the largest racially and economically unjust learning gaps in the country. With schools closed, those gaps got bigger - much bigger. If all we do is reopen with schools operating as they were six months ago...

 

ND Native Americans Will Not Be Test Subjects For Vaccine Trials

I love a good conspiracy theory - especially the ones that are all over the interwebs these days. But while some seemingly outrageous conspiracy theories have turned out to be true, many can be disproved. For instance: North Dakota Native Americans will not be guinea pigs for COVID-19 vaccinations. This week, I saw a screenshot from a Grand Forks Herald story that said that...

What if more of us have fought off COVID-19 than we think?

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- It's been a hard couple of months for those who follow the testing of COVID-19 antibodies. So-called serology research looks for antibodies in the blood that fight the illness, and how many of us have them. Other research looks at how long these antibodies last. The latest results from these studies are said...
