If there were any issue that Republicans and Democrats could agree on in the current, brutal political climate, one might think it would be female genital mutilation and the need to ban it.
Not a chance.
In Minnesota, a bill that would ban the practice, known as “female circumcision” in places such as Somalia, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen and elsewhere in the Third World, was passed overwhelmingly in the House but died in the Senate.
Now in Maine, a similar bill, LD 745, is being put up for a second vote in the state house after failing in late June. The state Senate passed the bill but the House rejected it, forcing another vote on an amended bill set for July 20.<!–more–>
opinion: This is so disturbing!!! What is this? Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as female genital cutting and female circumcision, is the ritual cutting or removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. The practice is found in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and within communities from countries in which FGM is common. UNICEF estimated in 2016 that 200 million women living today in 30 countries—27 African countries, Indonesia, Iraqi Kurdistan and Yemen—have undergone the procedures.<!–more–>
(Natural News) If you thought that your search engine history was private, think again. It’s not. Or, at least, it may not be, depending on whether or not you’re under police investigation.
According to The Free Thought Project, a court in Minnesota has recently ruled that an entire city’s search history should be made available to police, an Orwellian first as far as anyone can tell. It may well mark the beginning of the end of Internet freedom.
Cops in Edina, Minn., were granted a warrant that requires search giant Google to provide search history information and the names of everyone in the city who utilized specific search terms between Dec. 1, 2016, and Jan. 7, 2017.

(Natural News) Rochester, Minnesota schools began sending notes to parents in January threatening to remove children from classrooms if they could not provide proof that they had received government mandated vaccines. While some are applauding this controversial strong-arming method, many are furious over this nanny state behavior and being told to comply or face the consequences.
They also recommend but do not require, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Hepatitis A, and Influenza. Failure to receive even one of the necessary shots resulted in children being removed from class. It should be noted that Minnesota takes their cues on vaccines from federal “recommendations” developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC)…. [read more]
Editor’s note: The name of the victim in this story has been changed to protect her safety. Sarah Penskey is not her real name.
Sarah Penskey was in her garage unpacking boxes on a sunny morning in late June when she was approached by several bearded Somali men in their early to mid-20s.
It was the last week of Ramadan, and the men were wearing traditional Islamic robes.
The uninvited visitors to this posh Minneapolis neighborhood known as Linden Hills – situated among tall trees just off of Thomas Beach on Lake Calhoun – ground to a halt beside Penskey’s house that morning.
They came in a white RAV 4 Toyota and a dark-colored van, catching her unawares as she walked out of her garage to put something in her trash can….. [read more]
Minnesota-based retail giant Target announced Tuesday that transgender people are free to use the bathrooms and fitting rooms in their stores that match the gender they identify with, not their sex.
“We believe that everyone — every team member, every guest, and every community — deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally. Consistent with this belief, Target supports the federal Equality Act, which provides protections to LGBT individuals, and opposes action that enables discrimination,” Target argued in a statement posted on the company’s corporate website.
“In our stores, we demonstrate our commitment to an inclusive experience in many ways. Most relevant for the conversations currently underway, we welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” the company added…..

LHWM Notes: This is getting crazy! Leaders if your going to please everyone, then you need bathrooms for everyone. This is a form of discrimination no matter how you look at this. I do not want to go to the bathroom and a man who is not gay come in and act as if he is and then begin to hurt women and children and vice versa. Come on people use your head. Make bathrooms for everyone! If you do not understand what is happening then read our article on Deceit, Lies, and Destruction – Are You In
Some parents in the Anoka-Hennepin School District are questioning a choir teacher’s decision to use a song about Ramadan performed in Arabic at a holiday concert
EDITOR’S NOTE: The words “allahu akbar” are forever linked with the mass killing of innocents at the hands of Muslim terrorists, and are shouted before the commencement of their demonic acts. Now a high school in Minnesota is forcing their students to sings a song glorifying the “religion of death” at, of all places, the annual holiday concert. If it was your child being compelled to do this, what would you do? They say that the kids can chose to “not perform”, but I am sure they are applying massive pressure on those who do not wish to be a party to this.
At Thursday night’s concert at Blaine High School, one of the songs students will be singing includes Arabic words, including the phrase “Allahu Akbar,” which means “God is great.” Christian and Jewish songs will be performed as well, but the Ramadan song is getting all the attention.
