Mike Lindell, inventor and CEO of My Pillow Inc., told Breitbart News Tonight that President Donald Trump will flip Minnesota red in November — something that has not occurred in 48 years.

Lindell, the Chairman of Trump’s reelection campaign in Minnesota, laid out Trump’s path to victory in the state during a Tuesday appearance on Breitbart News Tonight, explaining that the president’s accomplishments speak for themselves.

“The lowest black unemployment before the pandemic, the lowest Hispanic unemployment, lowest women unemployment. I mean all these great things. The biggest confidence in the economy ever. The confidence factor,” he said, detailing the number of Democrats who are switching over to Trump’s column.

Lindell said he participated in a commercial a few weeks ago, where he interviewed Democrats. He found that “even Democrats are flipping.” They reportedly told him that Democrat politicians are not keeping their promises, and while “some of them didn’t even say they liked” the president, Lindell said they “sure like what he’s done.”

“And that’s common throughout Minnesota,” he said.

Lindell briefly talked about his friends who have had their businesses in Minneapolis “ruined” amid the leftist chaos and predicted that Trump could see a black vote as high as 20-25 percent.

“Same with Hispanics,” he said.

Lindell added that he has 1,500 employees, most of whom are Asian Hispanic, and black, and estimated that “99 percent of them are voting for this great president because they know how their jobs have always survived with his great leadership and they know that their jobs depend on it.”

“I really believe it’s going to be a Minnesota victory for the first time since 1972,” Lindell said.

In the past, Lindell continued, Minnesota GOP voters have been largely discouraged to vote because the state always goes blue, but in 2016, the state came “within an eyelash of voting for Donald Trump” — something he believes will contribute to greater enthusiasm this time around.

The CEO also cautioned voters to refrain from getting discouraged by the polls, explaining that they do not accurately depict the state of the race.

“If it says we’re down by eight, we’re winning by two,” Lindell said, adding that there will be a massive crossover for the president.

“That’s the biggest shift in Minnesota,” he said. “The great things he did saved our Iron Range and steel industry … and our farmers” who “just got the best purchase order ever from China a few weeks ago.”

Again, Lindell emphasized that “traditional” Democrats have come to him and explained that they are switching over to what he called the “common sense party.”

“They’re sick of our leadership in Minnesota and they’re definitely afraid of Biden and a Democratic Party that would have radical leadership,” Lindell said. “The Democratic Party they thought they had for 50 years or whatever, that ship sailed a long time ago. It slowly went away, but it’s no longer there.”

Former President Bill Clinton mocked President Donald Trump over what he anticipates will be his defeat in November, telling American Urban Radio Washington Bureau Chief April Ryan this week that Trump will be “stacking sandbags” to stay in the White House.

Both Bill and Hillary Clinton participated in an interview with American Urban Radio’s April Ryan, which she posted to social media on Wednesday.

Hillary told Ryan that Trump and his allies will “cheat” and “sneak” in this election, prompting Ryan to imagine the scenario of Trump refusing to leave the White House. Inauguration Day could feature a “split-screen” showing Democrat 2020 nominee Joe Biden at the inauguration and “the military going in” to pull Trump out of the White House, Ryan imagined.

“I was just thinking he probably won’t even come to Biden’s inauguration,” Bill chimed in. “He’ll be stacking sandbags in front of the White House.”

“He won’t! Right Right,” Ryan exclaimed:

The Clintons spoke negatively of the president throughout the interview and tried to make a pitch to the “good people who are torn on the other side.”

“I think we can honestly say to a lot of the good people who are torn on the other side, say look, the biggest difference in Donald Trump and Biden or Hillary and me — anybody — is that we look at you — even if we disagree with you — we want to welcome [you] to be part of our America,” the former president said.

“He [Trump] needs you, us, to be unwelcome, to not be part of his America. Because he can’t live without somebody to badmouth,” he continued.

“Because then he’d have to get up every morning and decide to go to work and figure out what to do. And that’s boring,” he added, prompting a laugh from Hillary.

“I think Michelle Obama did a great job just basically saying he doesn’t know how to be president,” Hillary said. “All he knows how to do is be a reality TV star and that’s what he’s going to continue to do.”

“And that’s why we’re going to have to convince everybody, April, to turn out and vote as though their lives and livelihoods depend on it because they do,” she added. “They truly do.”

Both Clintons concluded that defeating Trump is the only answer because Trump “is a clear and present danger to our freedoms, our liberties, [and] our unity,” Hillary said.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s (D) most recent mask mandate, which orders three-year-olds to cover their faces, exempts lawmakers and government employees while they are “on duty.”

Bowser issued the order Wednesday, mandating everyone over the age of two wear a mask in both indoor and outdoor settings.

“Under the new Mayor’s Order on masks, people must wear a mask when they leave their homes if they are likely to come into contact with another person for more than a fleeting moment,” the mayor’s office states.

While masking mandates across the nation, and in D.C., typically contain several exceptions — exempting the disabled, those who are actively eating, drinking, and people who are “vigorously” exercising — a closer look at Bowser’s executive action shows that the order does not apply to lawmakers, judges, or government employees while they are “on duty.”

“The enforcement provisions of this Order shall not be applied to persons in the judicial or legislative branches of the District government while those persons are on duty; and shall not apply to any employees of the federal government while they are on duty,” the order states.

The Metropolitan Police Department is authorized to enforce the order on all of those ages 18 and older. Violators can be fined up to $1,000.

The mayor’s mask mandate is in effect until at least October 9, 2020.

Bowser’s order comes as officials in both state and local government positions ramp up their enforcement of mask mandates. Florida’s Miami-Dade County, for example, has dedicated a small unit of over three dozen officers to enforce the county’s mask mandate. First, second, and third-time violators can face fines of $50, $100, and $500, respectively. After that, the individual can face jail time.

Broward County, a neighbor to Miami-Dade, also has a mask order, which has generated buzz. While it does not specifically order residents to wear masks in their homes, it limits gatherings to ten and urges residents to enforce the county’s mask requirements within their own homes.

The order states in part (emphasis added):

All persons who reside on any residential property, whether single family or multi-family, and irrespective of whether they own or rent the property, must ensure that all persons on the residential property, including guests, comply with all applicable guidelines of any Broward County Emergency Order, including the facial covering requirements. Residents who fail to ensure compliance with all applicable Broward County Emergency Orders by such persons shall be subject to the penalties set forth in Section 8-56 of the Broward County Code of Ordinances, with each person present and in violation of an applicable Emergency Order constituting a separate violation.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) both announced statewide mask mandates on Wednesday. Ohio’s goes into effect Thursday at 6 p.m., and Minnesota’s goes into effect Saturday morning.

The far left, led by Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), is championing a reform measure dubbed the “BREATHE Act,” which contains a slew of radical proposals, including the call to incentivize states to pass laws that expand voting access, allowing “local and State resident voting for undocumented people.”

The proposal, drafted in partnership with the Movement for Black Lives, aims to overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system, providing a range of radical changes — from defunding the police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to establishing a commission tasked with designing reparations for victims of “mass criminalization.”

An overview of the proposal devotes a section to ensuring “democratic, fair, and secure voting processes that are free from racial discrimination and voter suppression in every State.”

The proposed measures include “enfranchising all formerly and presently incarcerated people in federal elections,” “creating a public financing program for campaigns that are powered by small dollar contributions,” “incentivizing States to increase voter turnout,” and “incentivizing States to pass laws that expand voting access.”

In addition to enfranchising past and present incarcerated individuals, the leftists call forI:C laws specifically “allowing local and State resident voting for undocumented people.”

Additionally, the proposal calls for “full and free access” to a “lifetime of education for undocumented people,” as well as a jobs program that targets the “most economically disadvantaged individuals, including groups that disproportionately include Black cis- and trans women, formerly incarcerated people, undocumented people, and disabled people.”

Notably, the radial proposal also calls for the removal of federal laws that criminalize illegal border entry, as well as the full dismantlement of ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“We can start to envision through this bill a new version for public safety — a new vision for public safety, one that protects and affirms black lives,” Tlaib said on Tuesday.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) accepted a challenge from actress Alyssa Milano to debate gun rights and the Constitution following the left-wing activist’s request to expose his “bullshit” to the American people.

“I’d be happy to sit down & visit next week about uniting to stop gun violence & about the Constitution. If we can have a civil & positive conversation—in the spirit of 1 Peter 4:8 as you suggest—despite our political differences, that might help resolve the discord in our Nation,” Cruz said Monday evening responding to Alyssa Milano.

Cruz’s acceptance follows a tense exchange between the Texas senator and the left-wing actress, who prompted the conversation after snarkily asking Christians to “cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun.”

Cruz chose to address Milano’s question from every angle, using scripture, the founding documents, and real-life examples in defense of the liberty that upholds the Second Amendment.

“An excellent Q, worth considering carefully w/o the snark of Twitter. It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-give but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family,” Cruz began.

He continued:

Stephen Willeford exercised that fundamental right when he risked his own life to stop the Sutherland Springs murderer, saving countless others as a result. St. George Tucker, one of the most important scholars in early America, explained the reasons behind the Second Amendment as follows: “This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. The right of self defence is the first law of nature….”…in most govts it has been the study of rulers to confine this right w/in the narrowest limits possible. Wherever…the right…to keep & bear arms is, under any…pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. That’s also why, post Civil War, disarming Black Americans was a critical objective of the KKK, and was memorialized in countless Jim Crow laws—to strip African-Americans of their God-given right to self-defense from violence.

Cruz ended his thread, discouraging Alyssa Milano and her ideological allies from “playing politics” and using these crimes to “as an excuse to violate the constl [constitutional] rights of law-abiding citizens”:

Milano did not immediately respond to the individual points Cruz made in the thread, dismissing his response and instead requesting a live-streamed meeting so she can expose his “bullshit” to the American people. She also cited 1 Peter 4:8 – “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins’” – and posted a graphic, showing Cruz’s support from pro-gun groups:

Alyssa Milano responded to Cruz’s latest tweet, saying “Great. I just called your office. They gave me your schedulers email address. I emailed to set up a meeting. Looking forward to it.”

Cruz has also been under fire from the mayor of Chicago after tweeting a Breitbart News article, detailing the violence that unfolded in the Democrat-controlled Windy City over Labor Day weekend.

“Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer,” Cruz tweeted. “Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates. Let’s protect our citizens”:

Mayor Lori Lightfoot took issue with Cruz’s tweet and attempted to blame the mass violence in her city on nearby Republican states.

“60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL—mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation,” she wrote. “Keep our name out of your mouth”:

Actress turned left-wing activist Alyssa Milano challenged Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to a debate on gun rights but posed the event as a platform where she can expose Cruz’s “bullshit” to the American people firsthand.

“I’d love to come in and meet with you on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, @tedcruz and also, 1 Peter 4:8,” Milano wrote in response to Cruz’s lengthy thread, addressing one of her previous questions.

“I’ll be in DC next week. We can live-stream the meeting so the American people can hear your bullshit 1st hand,” the actor added.

The discussion started Sunday after Milano posed a question to evangelicals on Twitter, asking them to “cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun”:

The tweet followed the news of the devastating shooting in the Odessa-Midland region, which resulted in seven deaths and 22 injuries.

Cruz responded to Milano’s question in a Twitter thread, writing in part, “An excellent Q, worth considering carefully w/o the snark of Twitter. It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-give but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family.”

The Texas senator also explained the concepts of the founding documents and even cited a scripture, per Milano’s request:

Cruz also listed examples of heroes using firearms as a form of self-defense and gave the B-list actress a brief history lesson on the disarmament of citizens and what that generally meant in terms of power.

Cruz wrote:

Stephen Willeford exercised that fundamental right when he risked his own life to stop the Sutherland Springs murderer, saving countless others as a result. St. George Tucker, one of the most important scholars in early America, explained the reasons behind the Second Amendment as follows: “This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty.

That’s also why, post Civil War, disarming Black Americans was a critical objective of the KKK, and was memorialized in countless Jim Crow laws—to strip African-Americans of their God-given right to self-defense from violence.

“Playing politics w/ these deranged crimes—and trying to use them as an excuse to violate the constl rights of law-abiding citizens—won’t make anybody safer,” Cruz closed. “Forcible gun confiscation (as some 2020 Dems urge) won’t prevent mass-murders. But it would weaken our self-defense.”

Milano, however, dismissed the time Cruz took to answer her question and instead requested a debate, so she can expose his “bullshit” to the American people. She also cited 1 Peter 4:8, which states, “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins.’”

It remains unclear why Milano would imply that the scripture contradicts Cruz’s argument, as self-defense — particularly, defending others in dangerous situations — is an act of love.

The activist also attempted to delegitimize Cruz’s position by tweeting a chart showing the support Cruz receives from pro-Second Amendment groups.

Cruz has yet to respond to Milano’s invitation.

President Trump tweeted Saturday that “major consideration” is being given to labeling the violent far-left group Antifa an “organization of terror.”

“Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR,’” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. “Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!”

Trump’s tweet follows Portland bracing for clashes between “The End of Domestic Terrorism” organizers and Antifa counter-protesters Saturday. One of the organizers of the planned event, Joe Biggs, said it serves as a response to the violent Antifa protests that broke out in the city last month, which resulted in the hospitalization of journalist and editor of Quillette, Andy Ngo. Video showed violent Antifa protesters punching and kicking Ngo and throwing milkshakes.

Ngo was taken to the hospital and kept overnight due to a brain bleed:

“That group of Antifa there in Portland needs to be exposed for who they are,” Biggs told the Associated Press Tuesday. “And guess what? They should be scared.”

Earlier this month, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler sent out a warning to all who plan to “commit violence and spread hate” in the city, writing, “We. Don’t. Want. You. Here. Stop using our beautiful city and our home to spread fear and disrupt our lives.”

City police are prepared for any violent clashes Saturday and have many partner agencies on standby.

This is not the first time Trump has teased naming Antifa an “organization of terror.”

He wrote last month:

Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others). Would make it easier for police to do their job!

ESPN has pulled a trailer for Universal Pictures and Blumhouse’s The Hunt – a movie reportedly featuring liberal elites hunting red state “deplorables” for sport – over the weekend, a decision influenced by the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, that left over 30 dead and several dozen wounded.

An ESPN source confirmed that the film’s trailers will no longer air on the network, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Over the Aug. 3 weekend, ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared, while AMC ran the spot during the season premiere of its drama The Preacher. It’s unclear whether the ads were identical, but the one yanked by ESPN opened with a sound resembling an emergency broadcast signal. A rep for ESPN parent Disney declined to comment on the move, but an ESPN source says no spots for the film will appear on the network in the coming weeks.

The film, which has been described as a gory satire featuring actresses Hilary Swank and Betty Gilpin, follows a group of elites who stalk and murder conservatives in red states. The hunters are fueled by their hatred of the “MAGA-type” characters and their right-leaning positions. While the term “deplorables” may not be explicitly stated in the trailer, Daily Mail notes that the “hunted” were, in fact, described as “deplorables” in the screenplay.

“The film was originally called Red State Vs. Blue State,” the Daily Mail reports.

It is not clear whether the filmmakers are sympathetic to the “Deplorables” or the “hunters.” Nevertheless, Blumhouse founder Jason Blum is a notorious Trump-hater who was booed off stage at the 32nd Israeli Film Festival in Los Angeles last year after blaming the president for the rise of anti-Semitism.

“A lot is on the line, the last two years have been hard for all of us who cherish the freedom as citizens of this country,” the BlacKkKlansman producer said, triggering boos. “As you can see from this auditorium, it’s the end of civil discourse. We have a president who calls the press the enemy of the people. Thanks to our president, antisemitism is on the rise.”

As Breitbart News reported:

Blum’s hit on President Trump was seemingly the final straw for Beverly Hills Pawn star Yossi Dina, who walked up to the Blumhouse Productions founder and attempted to physically remove him from the stage.

As Blum was being booed, he told the crowd, “And now I’m being physically removed, which is why Trump is not the right guy for us.”

Despite the controversy, executives reportedly intend to stand by Blum, as they view the film as “a satire addressing an issue of great social importance.”

As the Hollywood Reporter notes:

While one high-level Universal source says the studio has pulled some ads that are beginning to air and appear online “for content and placement,” others say the matter is still under discussion internally. A major ad blitz on television and the web had been planned for the beginning of September, says one insider. A trailer is already online.

Given the fraught political climate — particularly in the wake of the attack in El Paso, which was motivated by anti-immigrant bigotry — studio sources say Universal is evaluating its plans in what one called “a fluid situation.” A high-level insider says top executives want to stand by Blum, one of the studio’s most prolific and successful producers, as well as filmmaker Craig Zobel, and see the project as a satire addressing an issue of great social importance. But this person says plans could change “if people think we’re being exploitative rather than opinionated.”

From a business perspective, The Hunt presents a gamble for Universal in these divided times. The satire Assassination Nation, which also pitted the woke versus the unwoke in uber-violent fashion, represented the top sale at Sundance 2018 at $10 million. But the film fizzled upon its release later that year, earning just $2 million with no international rollout. Says one person involved with that film, “We thought people would get the joke.”

The Hunt is scheduled to debut September 27.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused the Supreme Court of allowing the Trump administration to “steal military funds to spend on a wasteful, ineffective border wall” in reaction to Friday’s ruling, which allows the administration to transfer defense funds to begin the construction of the border wall.

The Supreme Court lifted an injunction Friday, giving the Trump administration the green light to transfer funds from the Defense Department to begin the construction of the border wall, per the president’s emergency declaration.

As Breitbart News reported:

The decision was largely along partisan lines, with all five Republican-appointed justices voting to lift the injunction, while all three liberal justices were opposed. Justice Stephen Breyer sought to have it both ways, allowing the process to go forward but not the construction: “There is a straightforward way to avoid harm to both the Government and respondents while allowing the litigation to proceed. Allowing the Government to finalize the contracts at issue, but not to begin construction, would al- leviate the most pressing harm claimed by the Government without risking irreparable harm to respondents.”

Pelosi slammed the ruling, declaring that the Supreme Court is giving the administration permission to “steal military funds” to spend on a wall, which she considers “wasteful” and “ineffective.”

“This evening’s Supreme Court ruling allowing @realDonaldTrump to steal military funds to spend on a wasteful, ineffective border wall rejected by Congress is deeply flawed,” Pelosi declared.

“Our Founders designed a democracy governed by the people — not a monarchy,” she added.

The Democrat-controlled House repeatedly dismissed the demands for wall funding earlier this year. Trump originally requested $5.7 billion for the wall, which Pelosi repeatedly rejected.

“There’s not going to be any wall money in the legislation,” Pelosi said during negotiations in January.

“Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee are wasting their time. Democrats, despite all of the evidence, proof and Caravans coming, are not going to give money to build the DESPERATELY needed WALL,” Trump tweeted at the time.

“I’ve got you covered. Wall is already being built, I don’t expect much help!” he added.

The president celebrated the political victory in a tweet Friday night, calling it a “big win.”

“Wow! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed,” he wrote. “Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”
