Klobuchar: I Never ‘Publicly’ Called for Franken’s Resignation ‘Because We Are Colleagues’


Sen. Amy Klobuchar said Thursday morning that she did not publicly call for Sen. Al Franken to resign over several allegations of sexual misconduct because the two Minnesota Democrats are colleagues.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski asked Klobuchar on “Morning Joe” about Franken’s decision to resign from the Senate. The comedian turned lawmaker announced on Wednesday that he will officially step down on Jan. 2, after seven women accused him of sexual misconduct, including unwanted kissing and groping. For weeks before then, Franken did not name a specific date for leaving office after originally declaring his intention to do so on Dec. 7.

“I would love to hear more from you on the issue of sexual harassment,” Brzezinski said. “There’s been a lot of discussion, debate about due process, and I’m wondering if you still think Al Franken’s resignation was a good idea, especially given that he was open to an investigation?”

“Well, I have firmly said that there should be an investigation the day that the first information came out, and I will say he himself made this decision to resign; it was not an easy decision,” Klobuchar said.

Franken(stein) Has Left the Building: The Communist Party Has Lost a Leader

Al Franken has resigned from the Senate. This is a major coup carried out by the Trump administration which was designed to impugn the character and integrity of Franken by encouraging women in Franken’s past to come out with cries of sexual impropriety. The man is a pig and his fellow troth drinkers have been put on notice. But what is going on in America is much, much more than meets the eye.

The Second American Civil War Has Already Commenced

All wars are first fought in the mind before they ever get to the battlefield. This is exactly what we have witnessed in our recent political history as America is just as divided as if the present date were to read, 1861. The metaphorical shots on Ft. Sumter have been fired. Both the revolution and the counter-revolution are on.

Al Franken is one of this civil war’s first casualties. However, it was a casualty that needed to happen. This conflict will most certainly escalate.

The Sex Scandals

Al Franken(stein) has left the building. He is only the latest victim of a modern day Salem Witch Trials in which the presumption of guilt, over innocence, reigns supreme in an extreme perversion of our legal system. The former Senator from Minnesota is just the latest political casualty in a war being waged for the control over political structure. Make no mistake about it, this former Senator was a directed target and a political casualty and Trump’s loyalists are at the heart of the plot to destroy this man, his reputation and his legacy. Some would argue that this man’s reputation and legacy needed destroying.

Al Franken has already been tagged as a communist subversive (see below) whose mision it is to destroy the United States. Al Franken was one of the Senatorial mainstays which encouraged the pursuit of Trump as a Russian subversive agent. In reality, it should have been Franken that was investigated for collusion. For example, in his fine work The Enemies Within, Trevor Louden identified Al Franken as a Senator who belonged to many front groups for the Communist Party. And according to Louden, the Communist party actually campaigned for Franken in his run for his senatorial seat as many of their members went d00r-to-door on behalf of this former Senator and his campaign.

Al Franken Is An Enemy Within

New Zealand Journalist, Trevor Loudon, documents, through his documentary entitled The Enemies Within), available on Amazon Prime, and the Louden piece details how the Communist Party of the USA itself has adopted a stealth plan to achieve revolutionary goals by decisions made in the 1970s to infiltrate and manipulate the Democratic Party. Loudon’s work documents how Al Franken is a member of several front organizations with strong ties to the Community Party as well as front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood..

“The Communist and Muslim Brotherhood infiltration plan is to form alliances with the radical elements in organized labor in conjunction with radicals in the African-American community and the feminist movement to establish a progressive coalition on the left that could dominate the national political agenda for decades to come.” Franken was friendly with the Progressive Caucus which is a front group for the Communist Party. Franken is not alone, but his actions and allegiances speak to his lack of commitment to the Republic and most importantly, the Constitution of The United States.

Trevor Loudon and former Congressmen West will tell you that there are 80 members of Congress who fit a similar profile to Franken. I have found even more and the number may pass 100 before all is said and done.

Here is merely a smattering of well-known names that fit this profile:

The House of Representatives

Nancy Pelosi

Louis Gutierrez

John Conyers

Charles Rangel

Marcy Kaptur

Peter DeFazio

Sheila Jackson Lee

Jim McDermott

Raul Grijalva

Kyrsten Sinema

…and a further cast of dozens.

The Senate

Barbara Boxer

Dick Durbin

Tom Harkin

Barbara Mikulski

Elizabeth Warren

Ed Markey

Debbie Stabenow

Al Franken

Sherrod Brown

Ron Wyden

Jeff Merkley

Patty Murray

Tammy Baldwin

Was it dirty politics that brought down Franken? Perhaps it was, but this person, like so many other traitors serving in our government, needed to be brought down. Therefore, the Trump people performed a public service.

I estimate before it is all said and done that a full 20% of the Congress (both houses) have ties to radical groups who are dedicated to Communist Party/Muslim Brotherhood ideals which means the eradication of the Constitution and the elimination of all civil liberties not granted by the state, the breakdown of traditional American morality, the subversion of the election process so that leaders are selected not elected and the establishment of Sharia Law in place of the Constitution.

With these associations and his continual efforts in dividing the country, this Senator should have resigned. Our country has reached its saturation point with treason from its public officials. Franken had lost all credibility.  Franken was not only a philanderer, he was a liar and a traitor. The Trump people could have not picked a better target.

One down and 79 to go.

MN Madness


Yet another “male feminist” exposed

In another tweet endorsing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, Franken labeled Hillary “a progressive voice that will fight back against attacks on women’s rights.”

A search of Franken’s Twitter history shows he has repeatedly invoked his advocacy for women as a political tool.

In another instance, a prominent feminist writer said, “Franken has shown himself to be a genuine feminist ally,” due to his support for abortion and other causes.

Franken’s case yet again highlights the extraordinary amount of “male feminists” who strongly virtue signal about how much they care about women while sexually harassing them behind the scenes.

Now there are rumors circulating of a second victim as Franken is exposed as yet another flagrant hypocrite.

Two women, including fellow state lawmaker, accuse Rep. Tony Cornish of sexual harassment

The harassment allegations at the State Capitol are widening, now including a powerful GOP committee chairman.

Allegations of sexual harassment and offensive behavior by male lawmakers swirled at Minnesota’s Capitol on Thursday, with DFL Sen. Dan Schoen facing demands from his own party’s leaders that he resign while two women leveled new complaints against Republican state Rep. Tony Cornish.

Late Thursday, House Speaker Kurt Daudt said he was suspending Cornish’s chairmanship of the House Public Safety Committee.

 – Democratic State Senator Dan Schoen is accused of harassing several women. Now, there are allegations against another lawmaker and calls for resignations.

Erin Maye Quade, a Democrat from Apple Valley, has only been a state representative for 10 months, but already she has four stories of sexual harassment. Her sexuality, in part, appears to have made her a target as she is an out, married, lesbian.

Frey wins Minneapolis mayoral race

Jacob Frey is the next mayor of Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis City Council member emerged Wednesday from a crowded field of contenders as the winner of Tuesday’s election — a contest in which the city’s ranked-choice voting system added to the drama.

Under ranked-choice, since none of the Minneapolis candidates won a majority of votes in the initial count Tuesday night, election officials needed to continue moving through the ballots, counting voters’ secondary choices until one candidate snagged a majority. It left city residents hanging about the final results.

Frey had been leading in first-choice votes Tuesday night. By Wednesday afternoon, election officials said the tabulation of second- and third-choice results showed Frey the winner, defeating incumbent Mayor Betsy Hodges, candidate Tom Hoch, state lawmaker Raymond Dehn and civil rights attorney Nekima Levy-Pounds.

After five rounds of tabulations, Frey and Dehn were the remaining candidates left in the process. Frey tallied 46,716 votes, Dehn came in at 34,971 out of a total of 104,522 votes cast, according to the unofficial results.

“I do think that people were looking for a fresh start right now,” Frey told MPR News Wednesday afternoon. “We have become a divided city … people were looking for a bridge builder.”

St. Cloud, MN~Ground Zero



Why everyone is watching on both sides of migrant issue

rss feed Subscribe to feed

Most Somali refugees start out here, at the United Nations Daadab refugee camp on the Kenya-Somalia border. Between 5.000 and 11,000 per year are sent to the United States, along with thousands of others from Syria, Sudan, Iraq and Afghanistan.

A small city in the Midwest is becoming “ground-zero” for a long-simmering battle over refugee resettlement that could have a ripple effect across the United States.

St. Cloud and the surrounding small cities of Central Minnesota have been the drop-off points for thousands of refugees coming from United Nations camps over the past 15 years.

This area was represented in Congress by conservative firebrand Michele Bachmann until 2015, and many of her supporters to this day believe the refugee industry tried to punish her for taking a strong stand against Muslim immigration.

Now, with the continued influx of refugees putting pressure on cramped schools and growing costs for policing and indigent healthcare – some taxpaying residents are beginning to ask a pointed question of themselves, and their elected politicians: “What’s in it for us?”

St. Cloud, MN: a microcosm of the battle ahead for cities targeted by federal refugee program

Ann Corcoran

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2017

The dramatic change in demographic makeup and the escalation of tensions in St. Cloud came to my attention in the earliest days of writing this blog when my then blog partner, Judy, wrote in 2008 about how Somali students were harassing a service dog to such a degree that it caused the disabled student to leave the school.

See that story here.

It is a good thing that we captured some of that story because it seems to no longer be available at the St. Cloud Times, which surprise, surprise, seems to be the case for many of the articles we have reported on from St. Cloud in the ensuing 9 years.

Recommendation!  I can’t do it here, but when I look at RRW’s archives on St. Cloud (that began with the dog abuse story) what immediately comes to mind is that what has happened to the city, now the third highest for the direct resettlement of Somalis in the state (Minneapolis and St. Paul, are numbers one and two), is that someone should do a documentary film or write a book about the transformation of a small American city that began with a meatpacking plant’s desire for cheap labor.

And what got me thinking about it this morning is this snarky editorial in the St. Cloud Times blaming the Christian haters for the tension there.

Before I get to that, take a look at my St. Cloud archive by clicking here.

A sampling of stories that you should look at include:

St. Cloud, MN Somalis turn up the stealth jihad heat, demand “human rights”

St. Cloud, MN a perfect example of community agitation to bring “change”

St. Cloud, MN update: refugees now arriving there directly from camps

On this last post, I checked data at Wrapsnet and St. Cloud was getting Somalis directly, immediately after 9/11, but I believe Lutheran Social Services MN (the resettlement contractor there) didn’t open an office in the city until 2010.

But, direct resettlement doesn’t tell the whole story because Minnesota leads the nation in secondary migration (Somali refugees placed in other states move to MN to be with their own kind of people.)

St. Cloud City Council Meeting 09/25/2017


Wake Up St. Cloud Times

From Peace In St. Cloud: The left wing under researched St. Cloud Times has gone off a journalistic cliff with this ridiculous piece of fiction ….. 

First of all we are all children of immigrants and no one has said or will ever say anything about our immigrants that indicates we do not love and care for them.  We do think our immigration laws should be enforced and reason applied to the children brought here by illegal parents.  

But our questions and concerns apply only to unknown, unavailable, untrackable numbers of refugees ( No Christians allowed even though they are suffering genocide in their home countries) streaming into our fairly small town with a moderate tax base to continue to care for them as the volags that bring them look to the tax payers to continue their care.  All we ask our elected officials is research the numbers and analyze our ability to continue bringing more in through the UN appointed volags.  

The Mayor and Council and State representatives are invited to the Lutheran Social Services meetings where it is required that local and state governments be consulted.  This is where the questions must be asked.  But this is where none of our government officials show up to ask any….We are simply asking them to start asking questions and let the people know the answers.

It’s fine to get to know our new neighbors and many are doing so …this concern has nothing to do with being good neighbors but everything to do with economic sustainability if this continues unabated for years and years with no questions asked. 

We owe it to our children and grandchildren to use reason and caution and demographics must be taken into consideration….how many taxpayers can we lose due to flight from poor City induced conditions and still survive?  

This has nothing to do with attacking the religious beliefs of others…..Wake up St. Cloud Times…the quality of your staff is deteriorating and it shows.   

1 year after stabbing, know from whom hate emanates

If Central Minnesota is going to look back on one year since the Crossroads Center attacks and ask about community relations and people getting along, we at least need to be honest.

When it comes to publicly exuding religious extremism in Central Minnesota and a lack of tolerance for others, it’s not from new immigrants nor Muslims. It’s from long-time residents. And Christians.

Make no mistake: It’s not all Christians, not all residents. In fact, the good news since the attacks is many local residents — Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and none of above — made concerted efforts to get to know their neighbors.

Click to watch:  St. Cloud City Council Meeting 

Valued opinion from a former St. Cloud resident……

I managed to view the entire City Council proceedings.  It was mostly very painful.  It seems that Roberts Rules of Order have digressed into highly specialized jargon that is nearly unintelligible to ordinary people.  This may be intentional, to mask or obfuscate the content of proceedings, or it may simply be the result of unconstrained bureaucratic processes run amok.  I would like to think that the latter is the case.

On the issue Jeff Johnson brought up, regarding Council attendance at quarterly LSS immigration planning meetings, his very reasonable suggestion was summarily dismissed for bureaucratic and mostly unintelligible reasons.  Nobody stated that the LSS meetings were outside the bounds of Council interests and responsibilities.  The main objection appeared to simply be a dislike of any Council representation or attendance at the LSS meetings.  That objection is irrational and flaunts the Council charter.

In my opinion, since the Council apparently hesitates to attend any LSS meetings, LSS should be requested to brief the Council with the results of their meetings, especially regarding immigration issues and plans that directly impact city (and school district) budgets and resources.

Also, mention was made that St Cloud’s demographics have changed due to recent immigration.  How much have they changed, using what metrics of measurement?  The Council should conduct a study of how demographic changes caused by immigration have impacted city functions and resources, as well as the projected impact of best known, future planned immigration.  The study should answer questions selected by the Council, as being most germane to the Council’s charter.

The proceedings were quite painful to watch, but enlightening nonetheless.  I don’t know how Jeff can take it.  I sure don’t want his job.  I drink enough as it is.
