"Last Saturday, the Minnesota Republican Party formally endorsed Royce White, a former NBA basketball player, to be the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate."

As Judd Legum and Tesnim Zekeria report, White wrote in 2022 that "many of the Jewish people have lost their faith in a loving God," and their faith has been replaced by "materialism."

"White defended Ye (formerly Kanye West) after the rapper praised Hitler in 2022. At the time, White criticized Jews for focusing on the Holocaust 'to provide a victimhood cover for their own corrupt practices.'"

In 2023, White stated In July 2023, White lamented that “women have become too mouthy.” He has stated that “[t]he LGBTQ movement is the brainchild of radical feminists and their cucked men.”

Excellent article by Sharon Lerner. Long, but reads fast like intrigue fiction (but 100% true).

> After the late ’70s, when 3M scientists established that the chemical was toxic in animals and was accumulating in humans, it produced millions of pounds per year.

> all people have at least one forever chemical in their blood, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

> 3M dumped chemical waste in Washington County for decades. A lot of young people got cancer. Some of them made it, some didn’t.

Amara Strande, profiled in the article, died on April 14, 2023 at age 20.

The temperature is a glorious 54°F/12°C outside and is heavenly in the springtime. We left all the windows open last night and everything is crisp and cool this morning. We’ll keep it open until the storms arrive this evening.

Is the PWHL dead in the States? Toronto at Minnesota and all the seats below the level of the camera are empty. Across the ice, looks pretty full. So did the arena move everyone to one side to give a Trump impression of the crowd? Cheap, really cheap. I expected more of a hockey state like Minnesota.

Article 13, Section 7 of the Minnesota Constitution states

“No license required to peddle.

Any person may sell or peddle the products of the farm or garden occupied and cultivated by him without obtaining a license therefor.“

Because of this wording a group of Minnesotans is arguing the state constitution allows them to sell their home-grown marijuana — they’re legally growing — without a sales license and are asking a judge to weigh in.

Take care, especially if you're going outside tonight!
