Minnesota state senator slams ‘off-the-wall’ vow to dismantle Minneapolis PD: ‘That’s not going to work’

Minnesota State Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka blasted Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender Tuesday for her comments earlier this week about dismantling the city’s police department, calling them “off-the-wall.”

During a CNN interview Monday, Bender struggled to answer a question from anchor Alisyn Camerota about what would happen if a person needed help because their home had been broken into.

“I mean, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors,” Bender responded. “And I know … that that comes from a place of privilege. Because for those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.”

GEORGE FLOYD TO BE BURIED IN PRIVATE CEREMONY IN HOUSTON

Gazelka told “Fox & Friends First” that Bender apprently believed the question of whether to disband the Minneapolis Police Department was “about privilege, which is so off-the-wall.”

“It’s about safety,” he continued.

Bender has been one of the most prominent and vocal supporters of the movement to dismantle the city’s police force in the wake of the May 25 death of George Floyd. Last week, she vowed to “dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.” Over the weekend, she joined a veto-proof majority of the council who committed to “dismantle” the law enforcement institution.

“One of the main reasons that police get called out is [for] domestic abuse and you think about those situations, and now no police officer is there, what are you going to say? ‘Please stop,’” Gazelka said on Tuesday. “I mean, that’s not going to work.”

“In the end, if you’re going to stop lawlessness you have to be stronger than them,” he continued. “There has to be a force stronger than them.”

He noted that “the police as a whole are very, very good and very, very important.”

“It’s probably one percent or two percent that aren’t doing the job that they need to do and we have to help them get better or remove them, but you cannot have no police and expect people to feel safe,” Gazelka said.

Small-business owners already hurt by coronavirus shutdowns react to spotting looters on surveillance cameras

Two small business owners told “America’s News HQ” their surveillance cameras caught looters destroying their businesses and they’re now left with even more challenges after already reeling from coronavirus restrictions that have stayed in effect since mid-March.

“When we were being looted and broken into, the police were spread pretty thin and no one responded to that,” said Jim Stage, the owner of Lloyd’s Pharmacy in St. Paul, Minnesota, which has been in the area for over 100 years.

He went on to note that first responders showed up only after looters set his pharmacy on fire. Stage said firefighters “worked tirelessly all night” to battle the flames.

Stage said his business was gone, but he planned to rebuild as soon as possible. “We’re trying to take care of patients as best we can amidst this,” he added.

When asked if he could fulfill all of his customers’ prescriptions, Stage said he has been able to “triage” patients by sending some to his other pharmacy in nearby Roseville.

“My staff has worked tirelessly to make that happen,” Stage said. “There is [sic] probably about 12 pharmacies that were hit in the Twin Cities, and so, we’re filling whatever we can for people and they’re doing a great job of it.”

Cities across the country have been trying to get a handle on the widespread unrest after video captured the police-involved death of George Floyd on May 25.

‘IT WAS A WAR ZONE’: SMALL-BUSINESS OWNERS WHO LOST EVERYTHING IN RIOTS SPEAK OUT

John Lane, the co-owner of Winking Lizard Tavern in Ohio, also told “America’s News HQ” on Sunday that looters hit his story as he was getting ready to reopen — after it closed back on March 15 as the coronavirus spread.

“We have 18 restaurants, 1,300 employees and we were gradually opening our restaurants and we got hit with a riot last Saturday,” he explained, adding that he watched the destruction live on security cameras.

“The painful thing is that our people have been out of work since [March 15],” Lane said. “All of our managers and 95 percent of our people want to come back to work, and now we are under another delay.”

Lane said there was “some structural damage to the building” and he did plan to rebuild, but “we don’t know exactly when that’s going to happen.”

Sarah Sanders hits back at Biden: He shows every day that he’s not the person to unite America

Fox News contributor Sarah Sanders said on Friday that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is not the person who can unite the country after Biden claimed that “10 to 15 percent” of Americans are “just not very good people.”

“He is saying things [that are] divisive and saying 15 percent of our country aren’t good people,” the former White House press secretary told “Fox & Friends.”

As first reported by The New York Times, Biden held a virtual town hall on Thursday evening with black supporters where he knocked what he called Trump‘s divisiveness and weak leadership.

BIDEN CLAIMS ’10 TO 15 PERCENT’ OF AMERICANS ARE ‘JUST NOT VERY GOOD PEOPLE’

“The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re gonna the worst of us to come out,” Biden told actor Don Cheadle, who was moderating the virtual town hall.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” Biden continued. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent. We have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

Sanders said Biden’s comments that 15 percent of Americans are not good people is not only appalling but also the type of rhetoric that is dividing the country.

“Joe Biden, every single day, is politicizing this, instead of coming up with solutions and trying to bring the country together. He’s doing exactly what he is saying shouldn’t be happening,” Sanders said.

“While I agree we need to come together as a country, I fundamentally disagree that Joe Biden doesn’t have anything to do with that and I don’t think that most of America will put their faith behind them when it comes to the end of the day in November because I think he is showing us every single day he’s not that person that can bring us together.”

Vegas Chamber of Commerce chief says reopened casinos will be ‘a different kind of Vegas’

Vegas Chamber of Commerce President Tom Burns joined “America’s Newsroom” Thursday to explain how Americans’ experiences in Sin City will change due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Casinos in Las Vegas and throughout Nevada reopened at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, 78 days after they were closed due to the pandemic.

“The health district in conjunction with local leadership in the gaming industries did a really remarkable job of making this an event for our employees and for our patrons as we go forward,” Burns told “America’s Newsroom.”

TRUMP SIGNS SOCIAL MEDIA EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT CALLS FOR REMOVAL OF LIABILITY PROTECTIONS OVER ‘CENSORING’

Burns said gaming rooms will feature partitions and be deep cleaned as casinos take steps to ensure the health of workers and players alike.

“It’s going to be a different kind of Vegas, no doubt about it,” Burns said, “but it is still going to be an amazing experience,”

Gov. Steve Sisolak’s emergency order shutting down non-essential business to prevent the spread of COVID-19 idled Nevada’s key tourism and hospitality industry nearly 89 years to the day after gambling was legalized in 1931.

Now, property owners, state regulators and Sisolak, a Democrat who has been criticized for the closure, are balancing health concerns against the loss of billions of dollars a month in gambling revenue and almost half a million unemployed workers.

Burns said that casinos will not have the crowds that were seen pre-pandemic because of social distancing guidelines. He also warned visitors looking for taste of Vegas’ famous buffets that they “might want to wait a couple of years or some time” before things return to normal.

We have world-class food, we have world-class restaurants. They’re going to be available. They’re going to be open,” Burns said. “You’re still going to have a major experience, it’s just you’re not going to be able to get eggs and bacon off the buffet right now.”

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania William McSwain told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday that the liberal policies of Philadelphia‘s district attorney are hurting efforts to prevent criminals from inflicting more damage on the city.

“We are at an important moment in Philadelphia’s history, and in our nation’s history,” McSwain told host Tucker Carlson. “We can go down one of two paths. We can either go down a positive path of peaceful protests, respect for democracy, [and] racial healing, or we can go down a destructive path of crime and lawlessness and bending to the mob — and I know what path I want to go down.

“We are working very hard to step in and make sure there is accountability and punishment for their rioting and of the looting and the arson that we’ve seen,” said McSwain, who added, “I think that the vast majority of people want to take the positive path.”

FLASHBACK: PROSECUTORS RIPS PHILADELPHIA OFFICIALS FOR USING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC TO ‘FLING OPEN THE PRISON DOORS’

Earlier Wednesday, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced that charges had been filed against a man accused of selling homemade dynamite used to blow up ATMs in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley.

“We are seeing a small percentage of people try to hijack our democracy and it’s important that we stand up and it’s important that we condemn the acts that we are seeing,” the prosecutor added.

McSwain also warned that people must not “sugarcoat” the violence or “make excuses” for it and “hedge” as to whether it supports any larger cause.

“[We need] full-throated, unequivocal condemnation and that’s certainly what I’m trying to do,” he said. “[But] we have a specific problem in Philadelphia … Mr. [Larry] Krasner, he’s actually scolding the media in Philadelphia for showing the pictures of the rioting, the looting, the arsons, the burning of the police cars and the like.”

McSwain has repeatedly criticized Krasner, the Democratic district attorney, who has been seen as a progressive political force in the prosecutor’s office.

“That [the destruction] steps on his narrative that this is all legitimate protest, and he’s not at all interested in putting any of these people in jail or having any accountability,” McSwain told Carlson. “So again, the federal government is having to step into that accountability vacuum because I think we do speak for the majority, the vast majority of America.”

An upstate New York police chief told “Fox & Friends First” on Wednesday he was inspired to take a knee and marched with peaceful demonstrators over the weekend because he felt “what the protesters were feeling at the time.”

“I could feel the passion in their voices and when I was asked to take a knee I felt it was something very small that I could do to support them and why they were there and I decided to do it,” Schenectady Police Chief Eric Clifford said.

“When I did it, all the officers that were there, both that worked for me and that were there to support us during this protest, they all took the knee too and it was a pretty amazing moment.”

On Sunday, Clifford engaged in the now commonly seen practice to condemn brutality that was started four years ago by professional athletes including former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who last played for the San Francisco 49ers.

‘IT WAS A WAR ZONE’: SMALL-BUSINESS OWNERS WHO LOST EVERYTHING IN RIOTS SPEAK OUT

Protests were sparked by the May 25 death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis cop, Derek Chauvin, was seen kneeling on his neck in a viral video. Chauvin has been fired and charged with third-degree murder.

“The very vast majority of police officers, come to work every day, especially during this pandemic, they do very hard work, they’re putting their lives on the line literally and a few bad apples should not define the profession,” Clifford said on Wednesday.

“But we do need to recognize as a profession that the community is hurting when they see things like what they’ve seen and that we have to do our best to project to them that we are working harder to be better at what we’re doing.”

Clifford stressed the importance of police officers being immersed in the communities they serve and protect.

“We have to do what we can as a profession to show the community that we care,” Clifford said.

“One of the reasons we were able to do what we did in Schenectady was that there was many members of the community in the crowd of protesters that I knew and I trusted and they trusted me so they trusted me enough to allow me to speak and they spoke to the protesters and asked for them to give me that respect, they made sure there would be no violence after I spoke and then when they asked me to march with them, that level of trust was already there,” he went on to explain.

“We decided to walk together because we had gotten to that point in a few short minutes by taking a knee that we all figured out real quick that we were in this together.”

Dr. Cornel West weighs in on the state of race in America amid riots over Floyd death

Harvard philosophy professor Dr. Cornel West weighed in on the state of race in America as riots across the country have erupted in reaction to the death of George Floyd. West said on “Fox News Sunday” that the “violence spillover” is a result of the fact that “we’re living in a system that seems to be unable to reform itself.”

Nationwide protests were sparked by the death of 46-year-old Floyd, a black man who died Monday after a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeled on his neck for several minutes as he was being arrested on suspicion of forgery.

Video footage that went viral after the arrest showed Floyd telling the police officer “I can’t breathe” as passersby begged the officers to get off him. Moments later, Floyd became nonresponsive and was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Chauvin was arrested Friday and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. The other three officers involved with the arrest have been fired amid calls for their arrest.

On Sunday host Chris Wallace asked West, “Do you think that we’re seeing in the streets, riots, violence, looting in African American neighborhoods, do you think that’s doing any good for African-Americans?”

“No,” West said in response.

He added that “most of my fellow citizens” who are “in the streets” are “peaceful.”

POLICE CHIEFS ACROSS US CONDEMN OFFICERS INVOLVED IN GEORGE FLOYD DEATH

“And when it does spill over into violence, looting is wrong, but legalized looting is wrong too,” West continued. “Murder is wrong, legalized murder is wrong too.”

He then said that he looks “at the wickedness at high places first.”

West explained that  the “concern” is that “we all have individual responsibility, but we’re living in a system that seems to be unable to reform itself and when you have such a moment, you get violence spillover.”

West then noted that “if we’re more concerned about the property and spillover than the poverty, decrepit school system, dilapidated housing, massive unemployment and under-employment, we’re going to be doing this every five, every 10, every 20 years.”

“We got to make sure we don’t pass it on to our younger generation,” he added.

Wallace also brought up Ahmaud Arbery, a black man who was shot dead in February while out jogging in Georgia, and an incident in New York’s Central Park involving a white woman walking her dog who called police to report she was being threatened by “an African-American man” after he asked her to put her dog on a leash.

Wallace then asked West, “What’s going on?”

“I think what we’re seeing here is the ways in which the vicious legacy of white supremacy manifests in organized hatred, greed and corruption,” West said in response.

He added that “the sad thing about this moment” is “that we are witnessing the collapse of the legitimacy of leadership; the political class, the economic class, the professional class. That’s the deeper crisis.”

West went on to say that “the beautiful thing is we’re seeing citizens who are caring and concerned, they’re hitting the streets.”

He pointed out that “we’re seeing black, white, red, yellow, especially young people, coming together” and added that “many decades ago that wasn’t the case.”

West then stressed that the “problem is” that “we have a system that’s not responding and seems to be unable to respond.”

Rudy Giuliani calls for Minneapolis mayor to resign, blames ‘progressive Democrats’ for ‘violence’ in wake of Floyd death

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani blasted the protesters amassing in major cities across the country in the name of George Floyd, a man who died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer earlier this week. That officer has since been charged with third-degree murder.

Giuliani said on “Hannity” Friday that “no one” feels more strongly for the injustice toward Floyd, but that the policies of “progressive Democrats” are to blame “for the violence that has ensued.”

“Progressive Democrats are incapable of keeping their people safe — because they have criminal-friendly policies that are pathetic, that are dangerous, and now we are seeing the results are only there [in Minneapolis], but watch the cities that start burning,” he said. “They are all going to be run by so-called progressives — idiot Democrats who let criminals out of jail, who set bail for murderers and encourage exactly this kind of thing.”

Giuliani also said Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey should resign, this after a Minneapolis police precinct was set ablaze Thursday, and Democrat Governor Timothy Walz should, as well.

“Giving up a police precinct? The mayor should resign. Telling police officers to flee a precinct, he should resign and be replaced by somebody who can protect his people — The governor should resign because he has had four days to protect his people.”

NATIONAL PROTESTS BREAK OUT AFTER GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH

During Giuliani’s interview, host Sean Hannity played live video from New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Chicago where people were protesting. In Atlanta, the CNN headquarters was being vandalized. Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik told Hannity and Giuliani that a police precinct in Bedford-Stuyvesant, in Brooklyn, was under heavy protest and a police car in the vicinity had been torched.

“This is about protecting people’s property and protecting people’s lives. One man has died already. Before somebody starts to protect the people of Minnesota, Minneapolis, the people of Atlanta, the people of New York — [Mayor Bill] de Blasio is just as incapable of doing it,” Giuliani said.

Giuliani said that if such activity happened under the leadership of himself, or former New York City Police commissioners Howard Safir and Bill Bratton, it would not have been tolerated.

“The first person who threw a brick would have been arrested,” he said.

“The second person who burned a car would have been arrested. The third person who tried to hurt somebody would’ve been arrested, and it would’ve been over, and the statement to them would be ‘push it any further and try me, and you’re going to regret it.'”

Former Secret Service Agent Daniel Bongino, pointing to similar protests growing outside the White House, warned that potential demonstrators would be committing a “strategic miscalculation of the highest order” if they believe the U.S. Secret Service will “abandon their precinct” in the White House and not respond forcefully to a breach of security that threatens President Trump.

Chris Wallace: Twitter going down a dangerous ‘slope’ with Trump fact-checking

Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace joined the “Fox News Rundown” podcast Friday to discuss President Trump’s feud with Twitter, saying the social media giant may have taken the wrong step by “fact-checking” the president’s claims about mail-in voting.

“The danger in that is, once you go down that slope, unless you’re going to fact-check everything everybody says — and Lord knows, are there things the president says that aren’t true? Yes,” Wallace said. “Are there things that Joe Biden says and Democrats say that aren’t true? Yes. So if you’re going to fact check the president, are you going to fact check Joe Biden? If you’re going to fact check, you know, some Republican congressman, are you going to fact check a Democratic congressman? And so it becomes a very dangerous thing.”

“[If] you don’t fact check everybody, then people are going to see bias,” Wallace went on, adding that Twitter was running the risk of “becoming a third party in the ring” during a contentious election year and “may regret it.”

“I’m in the truth business,” Wallace said later in the podcast, “and I’d be perfectly happy if everything politicians said is fact-checked and everything I say is fact-checked. That’s fine.

“But you can’t do it. You just can’t. And there’s always going to be some bias in what you decide is so false, that needs to be fact-checked. And that just lends itself to the argument that there’s political bias, political favoritism in what you call out and what you don’t.”

The anchor also commented on the death of George Floyd following his arrest by Minneapolis police, calling it “outrageous.”

“When you see the video, and you see this man and, you know, he was handcuffed and he was handcuffed behind his back, and for minute after minute — I think four to five minutes — he’s begging, ‘Please, I can’t breathe. Please let me up.’ And the guy has his knee and it seems his full weight pressed on his neck,” Wallace said. “That was, you know, I mean, that’s outrageous.”

Wallace called on political leaders to speak out about a recent string of racially charged incidents across America, including Floyd’s case, which he called “maybe the worst of all.”

“People, leaders, need to speak out about that. And, you know, not to fan the flames, and Lord knows we don’t want riots, but to say we understand and we’re going to fix [or] try to fix this,” Wallace said. “This is unacceptable behavior in this country in the year 2020.”

NASA astronaut Rex Walheim joined “Your World with Neil Cavuto” Wednesday to discuss the scrubbed launch of a SpaceX rocket that would have carried to NASA astronauts to the International Space Station.

“It’s a range of emotions during a launch day because you never know what day you’re really going to launch,” Walheim told host Neil Cavuto. “You have a scheduled launch day, but you don’t know what it’s going to be like. So you prepare and you prepare like you are here for the Super Bowl. But you don’t know what day the Super Bowl is on.

TRUMP SAYS HE’LL RETURN TO FLORIDA SATURDAY FOR SECOND ATTEMPT AT SPACEX LAUNCH

“So they’re used to this kind of thing and they know this is a possibility. So they’ll be able to head back to crew quarters, prepare a little bit more, get a little more sleep and be ready to go for the next launch,” Walheim added.

Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken were scheduled to launch at 4:33 p.m. EDT from the Kennedy Space Center’s launch pad 39A, which was also used for the Apollo and space shuttle programs. What was to have been the first manned spaceflight launched from U.S. soil since 2011, was called off with 16 minutes and 54 seconds to go before liftoff.

The next launch attempt will be on Saturday at 3:22 p.m. EDT.

Cavuto asked Walheim why observers say the flight from Earth to the International Space Station could take anywhere from a few weeks to a month.

“It depends on how the vehicle operates … they’re going to test all the systems out,” Walheim said. “And one of the systems they definitely need to test out is the solar rays on the Dragon capsule.”

Walheim also said that having three astronauts on the space station “allows us to get a lot more science done and also the chance … to do some spacewalks.”
