Billionaire Dem Silent on Franken Donations

Congressional hopeful Dean Phillips condemned Franken’s behavior, but silent on past contributions

A billionaire Minnesota Democrat running for Congress distanced himself from accused sexual harasser Sen. Al Franken, but refused to say whether he stands by his campaign donations to the two-term Democrat.

Franken has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women since a photograph of then-comedian Franken groping a sleeping female reporter emerged on Friday. Radio reporter and former Playboy model Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of forcing his tongue down her throat and groping her while the pair were on a USO tour in 2006.

The accusations led Dean Phillips, a billionaire heir to one of the state’s largest liquor empires and grandson of “Dear Abby” columnist Pauline Phillips, to distance himself from Franken on social media as he runs to unseat Republican Rep. Erik Paulsen in Minnesota’s third district.

Phillips tweeted he was “extremely disappointed” in Franken’s behavior and called for a Senate inquiry into accusations of misconduct. While he “strongly condemned” the contents of the photo, Phillips also emphasized Franken’s willingness to “fully cooperate” in any investigation.

“While the recent deluge of harassment stories is both shocking and saddening, I believe the women who are coming forward and I admire their courage,” he said in a statement posted to Facebook. “Their stories inspire me to advocate for fundamental changes in our society and culture, so that this sort of behavior is no longer tolerated and to ensure it doesn’t occur in the first place.”

Phillips stopped short of a pair of prominent fellow Democrats, including state auditor and gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Otto, who called on Franken to resign.

He also did not address his past support for Franken’s political career in either statement.

Phillips contributed $2,000 to Franken’s reelection campaign in October 2014. He has remained silent about whether he stands by the donation or will ask for the contribution to be returned. He did not respond to Washington Free Beacon requests for comment.

Phillips has made feminist issues a priority in his campaign. His website lists “equity and families” among his top five priorities if elected and laments that “much remains to be done to ensure equal opportunities” in the workplace for women.

“I will push for equal pay for equal work, develop sensible family leave policies, protect a woman’s right to access healthcare, strengthen public education, and tackle disparities,” the site says.

Phillips has been a longtime Democratic donor, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

He made 128 federal election contributions totaling $332,827 dating back to 2002 with all of that money going to Democrats. He has contributed $131,300 to the DNC since 2007, as well as $71,800 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in 2006 and 2016. He contributed about $20,000 to the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party, including a $10,000 contribution in Feb. 2017 as he set his sites on his party’s nomination to in the Third District congressional race.

He has also helped finance election efforts at the state and local level, directing nearly $25,000 to state parties across the country, including swing states such as Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania during presidential elections.

Franken has apologized for his actions, but his office has said he does not intend to resign over the allegations.

My kind of church.

Florida church warns at every door ‘we are heavily armed’

A Florida church has a stark warning to all who enter who may wish to do harm–“we are heavily armed.”

The River at Tampa Bay Church regularly broadcasts its services live on social media, and in the wake of the Texas church massacre where 26 people were killed, a leader of the congregation made a splash on social media when he posted a photo of the sign.

“Welcome to The River at Tampa Bay Church — right of admission reserved — this is private property,” it reads. “Please know this is not a gun free zone — we are heavily armed — any attempt will be dealt with deadly force — yes we are a church and will protect our people.” The message is signed “The Pastors.”

Associate Pastor Allen Hawes told FOX 13 Tampa the sign has been up for over a year at the non-denominational church, but garnered attention after Senior Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne posted it on his Instagram account.

Hawes has his own concealed-carry weapons permit, and said those armed during services that draw over 1,000 could include parishioners with concealed-carry permits, private plainclothes guards, or uniformed deputies hired for security.

“If you think you are going to come here and do that, this is a deterrent for you because it is everywhere, it’s not like we hide these signs,” Hawes said. “They’re big signs, and it’s going to tell these people, we will protect our people.”

“Would I rather ruffle a few feathers, or do I want to count bodies?”

– Associate Pastor Allen Hawes

The associate pastor said church leaders are fulfilling a biblical teaching to look after those in their care.

“I believe, if you look at the teachings of Jesus, Matthew, and different places in the scriptures, we see it will get increasingly darker, wars, rumors of wars, and people with not good intentions are going to look for a way to make a statement,” he told FOX 13.

Despite criticism from some social media users on the church’s warning, Hawes said recent events such as the Texas shooting and the ongoing search for the serial killer in a Tampa neighborhood prove violence can happen anywhere.

“Would I rather ruffle a few feathers, or do I want to count bodies?” Hawes said.

What the hell is a “Hate slur”? Only in Minnesota….

EDUCATION

College Calls Police On Student Who Said ‘Tranny’ On Radio

The unnamed manager of the student radio station at University of Minnesota-Morris told the student co-hosts to leave the station, asserting that they had violated Federal Communications Commission (FCC) policy, but the university has since changed its stated reasoning behind the students’ suspension, reported The College Fix.

“You know, you can definitely, you see one tranny that’s trying to punch someone,” Brandon Albrecht, a UMM student, said on-air. “You know it’s automatically that one guy that you know I’m talking about. I bet you know. I’m not going to dox anybody and name them on air. But you two know if I say the tranny who looks like he’s going to punch someone. Yep.”

Albrecht used the term while discussing the lack of Antifa violence at his school with co-host Taylor Lehmann on their radio program “Deplorable Radio.”

Albrecht asserted that the station manager came approximately 15 minutes later with a police officer to kick them off air, while speaking with The College Fix.

“Hey guys, I’m just going to have you leave,” said the station manager. “You said a couple words that break FCC violations and so for today I am going to have you stop your show….Specifically tranny. That is a hate slur, it is not allowed on radio. I need you to leave.”

When asked if she had to call the police, the station manager said “it’s a violation, you are breaking the law. I just need to enter a report.”

One week later, Albrecht said that he and co-host Lehmann “were permanently suspended from the radio by executive decision.” Albrecht told The College Fix that the board told the co-hosts that they had, in fact, not broken FCC rules by saying “tranny,” but said they had received complaints that the two students were intoxicated while broadcasting during an earlier show. Albrecht denied this allegation.

“The officials are wrong,” said Bob Corn-Revere, a media and First Amendment lawyer, to The College Fix. “Neither [saying ‘tranny’ nor drunk broadcasting] is a violation of FCC rules.”

The radio station manager told Albrecht Wednesday that he and his co-host had not played two or more new songs each hour.

“The situation the radio station is dealing with relates to compliance with DJ expectations and station standards,” said Melissa Vangsness, a spokeswoman for the university, to The College Fix. But Albrecht said that his show was not the only one that did not follow every rule and believes he and his co-host were suspended because of his use of “tranny.”

While the radio station asked Albrecht and Lehmann to resign, Albrecht said that they want to make the executive board vote on the issue.

“It is a shame that our freedom of speech is being curtailed today in the very place it should be most free, on college campuses,” Albrecht told The College Fix.

Judgement day? Unlikely

I find it funny that the libtards publicly decry ALLEGATIONS of misconduct of Judge Roy Moore, yet vote for morons like freaky Al. I realize Governor Goofy won’t do anything, nor will the misfits in Congress, but which is worse?  An unproven allegation or one with proof, and a photograph?

Even though he’s made somewhat of an apology, shouldn’t he to the honorable thing and resign his seat in the Senate?  How will the Dems defend this?  He wasn’t much of a comedian and he’s less of a Senator than he was of a comedian.  This is just sick on so many levels and for those of you that voted for him, you should hang your head in shame.

The hypocrisy is stunning.

Woman accuses Al Franken of kissing, groping her without consent

A TV host and sports broadcaster on Thursday accused Sen. Al Franken(D-Minn.) of kissing and groping her without her consent in 2006.

Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of groping her, without her consent, while she was asleep and provided a photo as evidence.

 

The incident happened in December 2006, she said, when she and Franken, then a comedian, were on a USO Tour to “entertain our troops.”

Franken in a statement apologized for his actions.

Tweeden wrote that Franken, who was the headliner on the tour, had written some skits and told her he had a part for her, adding that she “agreed to play along.”

“When I saw the script, Franken had written a moment when his character comes at me for a ‘kiss’. I suspected what he was after, but I figured I could turn my head at the last minute, or put my hand over his mouth, to get more laughs from the crowd,” she wrote.

“On the day of the show Franken and I were alone backstage going over our lines one last time. He said to me, ‘We need to rehearse the kiss.’ I laughed and ignored him. Then he said it again. I said something like, ‘Relax Al, this isn’t SNL…we don’t need to rehearse the kiss.’”

She wrote Franken continued to insist and she got “uncomfortable.”

“He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth,” she wrote.

“I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time.”

She said she felt disgusted and violated. She added that she didn’t tell anyone what happened at the time, but she was “angry.”

Tweeden also said she fell asleep while on the plane back to the U.S. She said is wasn’t until she saw the photo of Franken groping her that she told her husband what had happened and showed him the photo.

“I wanted to shout my story to the world with a megaphone to anyone who would listen, but even as angry as I was, I was worried about the potential backlash and damage going public might have on my career as a broadcaster,” she wrote.

“But that was then, this is now. I’m no longer afraid.”

She said she is sharing her story because there may be others.

Dispatcher Steals Money She Raised For Officer Paralyzed From Chest-Down

edited

April Briscuso tells newspaper she got ‘desperate’ and had some bills to pay but plans on paying the paralyzed officer back

Hazelwood, Missouri – A police dispatcher who was praised for her efforts to raise money for an officer paralyzed in the line of duty was arrested and led out of police headquarters in handcuffs on Nov. 13 amid an investigated she stole some of the funds.

April Briscuso, 40, was arrested on suspicion of stealing more than $750 meant for former Hazelwood Officer Craig Tudor.

Briscuso was not immediately charged, but was released later in the day, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Hazelwood Police Chief Gregg Hall said he could not comment on the ongoing investigation, so it’s unclear how much money Briscuso could have stolen. Briscuso sent a Facebook message to a reporter that stated she had raised more than $75,000 on Tudor’s behalf, the newspaper reported. The the injured officer said his family has received nowhere near that amount.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that it was unclear whether Briscuso would be charged or if the matter would be resolved through restitution. The St. Louis County police are handling the investigation.

In Facebook messages to a reporter, Briscuso said “I’m getting it all to him” when asked whether she had given Tudor all of the money she raised for the paralyzed officer, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“I did a hell of a lot of work for him and raised over $75,000 plus time and work. I got desperate on my bills and used some money but had every intention on payin’ him back … I am not a criminal … I just made a mistake but plan on paying him every dime no question. He will not be betrayed by me,” Briscuso told the newspaper.

However, Tudor said he felt betrayed.

“It’s really not about the money for us, it’s about the deceitfulness,” Tudor said.

“This has been one tough year and now we have to deal with a situation with someone who is supposed to be helping,” Tudor added. “And when people hear stuff like this, they get apprehensive about other officers having fundraisers going on.”

Officer Tudor was out on a call for assistance on Aug. 25, 2016 when his patrol car collided with another car. Officer Tudor’s car went off the road and overturned.

Danielle Banks, the driver in the car that hit Officer Tudor’s vehicle, was trying to turn into a shopping center when she struck the side of the officer’s car.

Tudor, 37, was paralyzed from the chest down.

If you’re concerned about the fundraising for an officer, the non-profit OfficerDown.USconducts full vetting on all of their campaigns to ensure that the money gets to the people who need it.

Do you think that people who steal from fundraisers should be punished more harshly than other thieves? We’d like to hear from you. Please let us know in the comments.

Another “dreamer”? Sadly, this appears to be the new normal.

Man who stabbed two people last night at Mall of America identified as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman

Last night a man stabbed multiple people at the Mall of America and has been identified as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman. He was apparently trying to rob a man in Macy’s when his robbery got interrupted:

Here’s more:

NY POST – Multiple people were stabbed inside the Mall of America on Sunday night, leaving families and kids stunned as they waited to see Santa.

“My daughter could see people lying on the ground who had been stabbed,” Kim Schwieters, who was waiting to see St. Nick with her three children, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

At least three people were wounded in the attack, which is being described by police as “an interrupted theft.”

It happened around 6:45 p.m. in the men’s department of Macy’s, which is not far from the mall’s Santa Experience.

What started as simple robbery attempt quickly escalated into a violent, multi-victim incident after the would-be thief was caught stealing from two men inside a fitting room.

Speaking at a news briefing Sunday night, Bloomington Police officials described how the suspect snuck into the men’s room — as they were modeling outfits for friends outside — and tried swiping some of their belongings.

The pair attempted to stop him, prompting the man to pull a knife. He stabbed them both before being brought down and subdued by other shoppers, cops said.

One victim was reportedly stabbed in the back and another has numerous knife wounds.

Cops wrote on Twitter that the suspect, who was also injured, was taken into custody.

The last time we had a stabbing in a Minnesota mall was in St. Cloud and it was a terrorist attack. This sounds like it was not a terrorist attack but we’ll let you know if that changes.

Few people enjoy a good stroll quite like 95-year-old Harvey Djerf.

He’s been seen walking the same route in a Plymouth, Minnesota, neighborhood as long as anyone can remember.

“I’ve always liked to walk,” the World War II veteran tells local station KARE11. “I feel better if I walk.”

So too, it seemed, did the people who gazed out their windows to find Djerf on one of his twice-daily saunters.

Then one day, someone put out a chair for him.

“People saw me stopping and catching my breath,” he tells KARE11. “They figured that Harvey maybe needs a place to rest.”

And they were right. Djerf sunk right into that chair,
