President Donald Trump’s campaign is threatening a lawsuit after Minneapolis city leaders charged it $530,000 for security at an event scheduled for Thursday—26 times the amount it billed former president Barack Obama for a 2009 rally.

Mayor Jacob Frey said in September that Trump’s behavior is “reprehensible” and that his “message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis,” according to the Star Tribune. The Trump campaign accused Frey of “abusing the power of his office” and “conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security.” read more

Somali Immigrants Make Demands of Amazon

Despite being THE online powerhouse and a great place to find virtually anything, Amazon is apparently not the best place to work, at least for some.

I’m sure many of us have read and heard multiple accounts of employees anonymously complaining of working conditions and “unreasonable” production demands.

But it seems none more than the Muslim community.

Adherent Muslims are required to pray five times a day, every day. If anyone is interested, the five prayers are as follows:

Fajr – the dawn prayer.
Dhuhr – the noon prayer.
Asr – the afternoon prayer.
Maghrib – the sunset prayer.
Isha’a – the night prayer.

According to Vox.com, Amazon warehouse workers get two 15-minute breaks and one 30-minute break each shift, per federal regulation. Considering how often Muslims must pray, this doesn’t give them anytime to do anything else. So they have to make a choice. Or do they? read more

Minnesota’s Somali Problem

from Creeping Sharia:

Minnesota’s “Little Mogadishu” celebrated at Reason.com

Not all that many years ago, the worst things you could say about Minneapolis were that it was very cold in the winter and, for an American city of its size, it was somewhat dull. On the plus side, this traditionally Scandinavian-American burg was a model of safety and cleanliness.

Well, that’s ancient history. Minneapolis is now the world’s #2 capital of Somali Muslims. (#1 is Mogadishu.) In the Somali community, unemployment and welfare dependency rates are high. The city is a major recruiting center for ISIS. At least a couple of ISIS recruits have used taxpayer-funded student loans to fly to the Middle East to become jihadists; many other local Somalis are suspected of wiring welfare cash to terrorist groups. Violent crime is epidemic: as recently as December 13, a Somali Muslim immigrant stabbed a Minneapolis woman no fewer than fourteen times on her way home from work. read more
