Fire destroys historic Minnesota synagogue; cause under investigation

An overnight fire Monday destroyed an historic 117-year-old synagogue in Duluth, Minn., officials said.

A firefighter was struck by falling debris and had to be rescued from the balcony of the Adas Israel Congregation synagogue in the city’s downtown, the Duluth Star Tribune reported. He was not seriously injured.

The fire at Duluth’s oldest-surviving Modern Orthodox Jewish synagogue was reported at 2:23 a.m. Monday, the paper reported.

“It’s not a good day,” a leading member told the paper, declining to comment further.

Firefighters rescued the Torah scrolls from the basement, the paper reported.

All that was left among the charred remains were the remnants of some structural walls.

Duluth Assistant Fire Chief Brent Consie said the structure was “pretty much a total loss.”

Officials haven’t said what caused the blaze.

Construction of the synagogue was completed in 1902.

Protests in Minnesota over officer-involved shooting after chase streamed on Facebook Live

Protesters blocked traffic on Interstate 494 in Richfield, Minnesota, Sunday evening following a vigil for an officer-involved shooting in the city.

Family members say 30-year-old Brian Quinones was shot and killed by police after a chase around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday evening.

The moments leading up to the officer-involved shooting were captured on a Facebook Live video that was started by Quinones. The video starts minutes before officers tried to pull him over.

In the video, officers begin pursuing Quinones — who seems to remain calm but doesn’t stop — not long after the video starts.

At that point, the video shows Quinones jump from the vehicle — with what appears to be a weapon in his hand — and seconds later gunshots are heard. We’re told Richfield and Edina officers were involved in the incident but it’s not clear which department fired shots.

A vigil was held in Quinones’ memory near the shooting scene around 6 p.m. According to a Facebook event, members from Black Lives Matter and other advocacy groups took part in the candlelight vigil along with members of Quinones’ family.

After 7 p.m., protesters moved from the shooting scene toward Portland Avenue and the 494 ramps. On 494, protesters blocked cars from moving, creating a substantial back up along the highway headed east for about a half-hour. Shortly after, the protest moved back off the roadway and towards the shooting scene.

The circumstances of the shooting are being investigated by police. Few details about the incident have been released by officers.

Minnesota family says girl, 14, in vegetative state because nurse failed to treat asthma

A Minnesota family says their 14-year-old daughter has suffered a traumatic brain injury and is now in a vegetative state after her school nurse failed to treat her asthma earlier this year.

The family has filed a lawsuit against the Lakeville school district as well as the nurse involved. The suit claimed that on April 16, the girl, named Aaliyah, suffered an asthma exacerbation and went to the school nurse.

The nurse did not properly evaluate the girl and instructed her to go to gym class, the lawsuit continued.

During gym class at McGuire Middle School, the 14-year-old’s airways narrowed to a point where she couldn’t breathe and she passed out, attorneys said. According to the suit, Aaliyah was deprived of oxygen for 30 minutes, suffered a serious brain injury and has remained in a vegetative state requiring her to have caretaking services for the rest of her life.

The parents are seeking damages in excess of $10 million.

3 SHOT IN CHAOTIC SCENE OUTSIDE MINNESOTA STATE FAIR: REPORT

The lawsuit alleged that the school district and nurse had received a care plan from the girl’s doctors with specific instructions for treating her asthma exacerbations.

According to the suit, the girl had a long history of asthma attacks requiring medical intervention and the school district and nurse had been aware of the severity of her condition.

The school district told Fox 9 it was not responsible for the student’s injuries.

“Lakeville Area Schools are deeply saddened by the medical incident regarding one of our students last April,” the school’s statement said. “We express our deepest sympathy for the student and family. The district takes student health seriously and abides by medical protocols and emergency response procedures. It is our position that the Lakeville Area Schools are not responsible for the injuries outlined in the complaint.”

Minnesota woman, 62, killed by black bear in Canada

Canadian officials have identified a Minnesota woman killed by a black bear on a secluded island in Ontario over the weekend.

Catherine Steatt-Mueller, 62, was staying with her parents on Red Pine Island in Rainy Lake for a family reunion when the bear killed her Sunday, Ontario Provincial Police said.

Mueller, of Maple Plain, 21 miles east of Minneapolis, went outside around 6 p.m. when she heard her dogs barking, investigators said. One of the dogs returned to the cabin but Mueller did not.

Officers searched the heavily wooded area about 10 miles from the Canadian-U.S. border. They eventually found a young black bear standing over Mueller’s body and shot it dead.

Two other young bears were found acting aggressively in a nearby bush, Ontario Provincial Police Constable Jim Davis told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

No one witnessed the attack, police said, so it was unclear what provoked the bear, if anything.

“Attacks of this nature are extremely rare and our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim,” a spokesperson for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry told the paper.

The bear will be taken to the University of Guelph in Ontario for a necropsy, the ministry said.

Ex-Obama official Joel Rubin on Tlaib, Omar: ‘No, the Squad is not anti-Semitic’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6077532855001_6077529507001-vs Ex-Obama official Joel Rubin on Tlaib, Omar: ‘No, the Squad is not anti-Semitic' fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/michigan fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox news fnc/politics fnc Emily DeCiccio article 5f03da6c-54ed-52e6-a129-5c50c420dff5

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Joel Rubin said “there’s a difference between being critical of Israeli government policy and being anti-Semitic” as he defended Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar in the wake of Israel blocking them from entering the country.

In an interview with Fox News, the former Obama administration official argued that while Omar and Tlaib are both vocal opponents of the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians and supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (B.D.S.) movement, their opinions do not make them anti-Semitic.

TRUMP SAYS DEMOCRATS ARE ‘PARTY OF THE SQUAD,’ SLAMS MEDIA AS HIS ‘PRIMARY OPPONENT’

“No, the Squad is not anti-Semitic,” Rubin said. “Omar has said things about Israel supporters that she has apologized for, but that does not mean that she hates Jews. She hasn’t gone on a tirade attacking Jews, like real anti-Semites do. There’s a difference between being critical of Israeli government policy and being anti-Semitic.”

Republicans, particularly President Trump, have repeatedly accused Tlaib and Omar – who are both Muslim — of making anti-Semitic comments. Omar, for instance, has been called out for tweeting “Israel has hypnotized the world.” (The congresswoman did acknowledge and apologize for it later on Twitter.) Tlaib defended BDS and told an interviewer it is “criticizing the racist policies of Israel.”

Last month, as he ripped Tlaib and Omar, Trump went as far as to say that Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats are “disloyal.”

But Rubin argued that when critics call out Tlaib, who is from Michigan, and Omar, who is from Minnesota, and the Democratic Party as a whole, they miss the point when it comes to anti-Semitism in the United States.

“The American Jewish community here at home is on the receiving end of many direct anti-Semitic attacks, verbal and physical, and that has nothing to do with Israel policy,” Rubin said.

Rubin said anti-Semitism had previously been primarily tied to anti-Israel rhetoric regarding the BDS movement. In the past couple of years, however, Rubin noted that there’s been a rise in domestic terrorism against Jewish institutions in the U.S., the second category of anti-Semitism.

“My hometown synagogue, Tree of Life in Pittsburgh, was the scene of the worst anti-Semitic incident in the history of the United States,” Rubin said. “So these two competing anti-Semitism arguments are what’s playing out, and politically the pro-Israel community has really committed itself to fighting BDS and has not totally committed itself to fighting anti-Semitism here at home.”

Rubin also said he does not see the congresswomen’s views as detrimental to U.S. foreign policy, arguing they could strengthen both the United States’ and Israel’s long-term goals.

“American relations with Israel haven’t been damaged at all. American legislators have a duty to ask tough questions in support of American interests, and having that discussion ultimately strengthens our country’s foreign policy,” Rubin said.

He added: “While it’s true that these lawmakers are asking harder, more aggressive questions than is traditionally seen from Congress, the bilateral relationship still stands strong and American support for Israel is firm, and hopefully their views will foster a more comprehensive policy on the Middle East that leads to peace between Israel and the Palestinians – something that is firmly in the interest of the United States.”

Ilhan Omar says questions about alleged affair, misuse of campaign funds are ‘stupid’

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-9229803e72bd4983965a9f889c2ad1f0 Ilhan Omar says questions about alleged affair, misuse of campaign funds are 'stupid' fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/politics/judiciary/federal-courts fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox news fnc/politics fnc fe595d3b-e859-5ca9-bb73-c115bb8e4d5c article

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., dismissed what she called “stupid questions” from reporters on Wednesday about allegations she misused campaign funds to reimburse her purported paramour for personal travel expenses.

The National Legal and Policy Center, a nonprofit focusing on ethics in public life, this week filed a Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint against Omar claiming she misused more than $200,000 in campaign funds and failed to itemize travel reimbursements to Tim Mynett’s E. Street Group, LLC, a political consulting group.

Mynett’s wife filed for divorce Tuesday and claimed he told her about an affair with Omar earlier this year.

OMAR HIT WITH FED COMPLAINT, ACCUSED OF PAYING ALLEGED PARAMOUR’S TRAVEL EXPENSES WITH CAMPAIGN FUNDS

“Congresswoman, why are you dodging these questions?” a reporter asked Wednesday at one of Omar’s official appearances at a north Minneapolis grocery store.

“Because they’re stupid questions,” she responded.

ILHAN OMAR ISSUES TERSE DENIAL ON ALLEGATIONS OF AFFAIR WITH MARRIED DC CONSULTANT

One of Omar’s aides then blocked reporters from getting any closer to the congresswoman, Fox 9 reported.

Later, at a roundtable, Omar addressed reporters directly.

“I will just say I have no interest in commenting on anything that you are about to ask about my personal life, so you can chase me all you want,” she said.

Omar’s campaign paid E. Street Group around $230,000 since 2018 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising and travel expenses, according to federal election records. The FEC complaint was filed the day after Beth Mynett submitted divorce papers in Washington, D.C., Superior Court, alleging her husband said he was having an affair with Omar.

The married Minnesota congresswoman has denied the affair, and her attorneys called the FEC complaint a “political ploy.”

DC consultant’s alleged affair with Ilhan Omar is front and center in divorce papers

The wife of a prominent Washington political consultant has filed for divorce, claiming her husband made a “devastating and shocking” revelation that he was having an affair with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Beth Mynett, 55, submitted divorce papers in Washington, D.C., Superior Court on Tuesday, saying her husband, Tim Mynett, 38, informed her earlier this year that he was having an affair with Omar.

“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar, who serves as a U.S. representative from Minnesota,” read the filing, obtained by Fox News.

The filing continued: “Although devastated by the betrayal and deceit that preceded his abrupt declaration, Plaintiff told Defendant that she loved him and was willing to fight for the marriage. Defendant, however, told her that was not an option for him.”

The couple lived together for six years before getting married in 2012. They have a 13-year-old son.

“It is clear to Plaintiff that her marriage to Defendant is over and that there is no hope of reconciliation,” the filing stated.

The news of the divorce filing, first seen in the New York Post, comes just over a month after it was reported that Omar had separated from her husband and father of her three children, Ahmed Hirsi, and moved into a luxury penthouse in Minneapolis.

ILHAN OMAR ACCUSES NETANYAHU OF IMPOSING ‘MUSLIM BAN’ AS DEMS DECRY DECISION TO BLOCK ISRAEL VISIT

Omar’s campaign has paid Tim Mynett’s E. Street group around $230,000 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising and travel expenses since 2018, records showed. The 37-year-old congresswoman was spotted back in March with Mynett at a California restaurant.

“Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Representative Omar than with his actual work commitments,” the court filing read.

Omar’s office did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Beth Mynett is said to be seeking primary custody of the couple’s son because of her estranged husband’s “extensive travel” and concerns about his judgment in caring for the boy.

The court papers said Mynett “put his son in harm’s way by taking him out in public with Representative Omar, who at that time had garnered a plethora of media attention along with death threats — one rising to the level of arresting the known would-be assassin that same week.”

Omar received death threats in April after President Trump tweeted a video that combined comments from the congresswoman — which critics said were dismissive of the Sept. 11 attacks — and footage from Ground Zero. The threats became so concerning that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had Capitol Police conduct a security assessment to safeguard Omar.

Massachusetts senator and 2020 Democrat Elizabeth Warren was seeing double on Monday after meeting her lookalike in Minnesota. 

Stephanie Oyen sported short blond hair, glasses, and a blue blazer at a town hall event at Macalester College knowing that her attire would resemble the presidential candidate’s style. But she apparently underestimated how good of a doppelgänger she is.

“I thought it would get some giggles,” Oyen told the Star Tribune. “Then people started yelling, ‘Senator Warren!’ People were clapping and running up to me to take photos. I kept saying ‘I’m not her!’ but I looked up and hundreds of people were staring at me.”

Eventually, she had enough of the confusion she had sparked at the event and took off the blazer and glasses.

“It got weird very fast,” she explained. “I talk with my hands and shake my head, which only made me look more like Elizabeth Warren. I was saying ‘I’m not her!’ but I could have been saying ‘Medicare for all!’ ”

She continued, “I’m not a prankster. I really thought people would know, but then they started running up and saying ‘You’re my hero!’ and taking photos. I felt so bad.”

However, things took a strange turn when Oyen met Warren face-to-face.

“I couldn’t tell if she recognized I was dressed like her or if she thought, ‘Here’s a weird lady dressed like a stereotypical politician,’ ” Oyen recalled.

Warren reportedly told her “We need to talk!” as she pointed to Oyen’s outfit.

The 2020 candidate later joked on Twitter that it “would’ve been even better if she’d brought her own Bailey,” aka Warren’s golden retriever and campaign companion.

Minnesota man whose wife died after meth-fueled ‘death party’ is sentenced

The Minnesota man who held a meth-fueled “death party” with his dying wife — during which officials say she died of an overdose — was sentenced on Monday.

Duane Johnson, 59, was initially charged with third-degree murder in the death of Debra Johnson, 69. She was found dead in her home in Searles, a city roughly 100 miles southwest of Minneapolis, in January by first responders who arrived after Johnson called 911 to report her death.

Johnson, who reportedly told authorities he and his dying wife spent several days before her death doing drugs, later negotiated a plea deal that allowed him to plead guilty to criminal neglect.

He was sentenced to three years in prison, but is likely to serve 19 months behind bars before spending the remainder on supervised release, the news outlet reported.
