From WCCO (MINNNEAPOLIS) — Immigration officials say they have taken a man who was accused of having sexual contact with a student in a Twin Cities high school into custody.

David Manito, 42, was set to be released from jail Friday after the Hennepin County Attorney declined charges. An Immigrations and Customs Enforcement official said the agency placed a detainer on Manito following his arrest.

After he left the jail, ICE took him into custody. According to officials, ICE only places detainers on individuals believed to be deportable from the United States.

Manito was arrested after a Snapchat video appeared to show him inside a bathroom stall at Champlin Park High School Wednesday. He was accused of meeting a 19-year-old male student at the school for sex after contacting him on a cell phone app. Police say the student has special needs.

Charges could still be brought at a later date.

Seven-year-old pooch becomes mayor of Minnesota village by a landslide

duke

From Daily Mail: Politics has quite literally gone to the dogs in one Minnesota village, where a seven-year-old pup has been named mayor.

Duke, a Great Pyrenees, won the mayoral election in Cormorant this weekend by a landslide, taking all but two or three votes. The dog, who is often seen eating hamburgers and chips in the village’s pub, will be officially sworn in on Saturday.

All 12 Cormorant villagers paid $1 to vote in the election, with at least nine voting for Duke. Duke won the ceremonial role after a tightly fought campaign against local store owner Richard Sherbrook.

Mr. Sherbrook, who voted for Duke himself, said: ‘I’m going to back the dog 100 per cent. He’s a sportsman and he likes to hunt. He’ll really protect the town. There’s no question that he’ll do a good job representing the community.’

Duke was treated to five hours of grooming after his victory and will receive a salary of a year’s supply of free dog food from Tuffy’s Pet Food store in the nearby village of Perham.

A video of Duke shows him wearing a mayoral hat, but it is not clear if he will have to wear it for all official business.

Villagers say Duke, who is yet to make an inaugural address, has already started making changes in Cormorant. David Rick, who voted for the dog, said: ‘What he does is when the cars are coming through town, they’re hitting town at 50mph, and he slows them down. He follows me wherever I go.’

Tricia Maloney also voted for Duke and said: ‘He doesn’t know how to handle this publicity. He won by a landslide. He’s used to coming to the pub and getting some burgers and some fries or something.’

Don’t Pee On The Golf Course

money

A little old lady was walking down 
the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind 
her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while 
a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a 
policeman stopped her, and said, “Ma’am, there are $20 
bills falling out of that bag.” “Oh, really? Darn it!” 
said the little old lady. “I’d better go back and see if I 
can find them. Thanks for telling me officer. “Well, now, 
not so fast,” said the cop. Where did you get all that 
money? You didn’t steal it, did you?”

“Oh, no, no”, said the old lady.

“You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course
A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in 
my fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really 
tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 
‘why not make the best of it?” 

“So, now, I stand 
behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my 
hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing 
through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, 
O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.” 

“Well, 
that seems only fair,” said the cop, laughing. 

OK. Good luck!” 

“Oh, by the way, what’s 
in the other bag?” 

“Not everybody 
pays.”

Santorum wins big in 3 states!

Mitt Romney and the GOP establishment have better hold their water ’cause a Mitt presidential nomination is not a done deal.

Last night, true conservative Rick Santorum who actually had won the Iowa caucuses, swept the GOP caucuses and primaries in three states — Minnesota, Colorado, and Missouri!

The Minnesota result marked the first time so far in the 2012 Republican race that Romney did not come in first or second. Romney also lost in two states – Colorado and Minnesota – that he had won in his failed 2008 bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Steve Holland reports for Reuters, Feb. 8, 2012:

“Former U.S. senator Rick Santorum rejuvenated his presidential hopes on Tuesday with a shocking sweep of the three nominating contests in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri, dealing a blow to wounded front-runner Mitt Romney.

Even though Romney still holds strong advantages in financing and organization, his campaign will now have to refocus to fight back the challenge from the surging conservative Santorum.

Backed by a wealthy “Super PAC” that pays for attack ads against rivals, Romney had excelled in major contests thus far in the race. After big wins in Nevada and Florida in the previous week, he did little campaigning in Minnesota and Missouri and had been expected to win easily in Colorado.

Until Tuesday, Santorum had won only one of the first five Republican contests in the state-by-state battle for the Republican nomination to face President Barack Obama in the November 6 election.”

Here are the results of the GOP contests in the three states:

Colorado Caucuses (36 delegates; with 99% of precincts reporting):

  1. Rick Santorum: 40%
  2. Mitt Romney: 35%
  3. Newt Gingrich: 13%
  4. Ron Paul: 12%

Missouri Primary (52 delegates; with 99% of precincts reporting):

  1. Rick Santorum: 55%
  2. Mitt Romney: 25%
  3. Ron Paul: 12%
  4. Uncommitted: 4%

Minnesota Caucuses (40 delegates; with 95% of precincts reporting):

  1. Rick Santorum: 45%
  2. Ron Paul: 27%
  3. Mitt Romney: 17%
  4. Newt Gingrich: 11%

Santorum is a devout Catholic who had been in a battle with Gingrich to become the conservative alternative to RINO Romney. Santorum’s victories give heart to social conservatives fighting battles of abortion, gay marriage and contraception in recent days.

Tuesday’s strong showing by Santorum came as divisive social issues came to the forefront again in U.S. politics. Earlier in the day, a U.S. appeals court ruled that California’s ban on gay marriage violated the U.S. Constitution in a case expected to lead to a showdown in the Supreme Court.

In addition, U.S. Roman Catholic bishops have slammed the Obama administration for a new regulation that would require health insurance to include birth control. The bishops contend the policy infringes on religious liberty because the church does not condone birth control of any kind.

Santorum took some jabs at Obama, focusing in particular on the new contraception rule. He accused the president of trying to “impose his secular values on the people of this country.”

“I don’t stand here to claim to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney, I stand here to be the conservative alternative to Barack Obama,” he added to cheers from the crowd.

The startling results in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri raised fresh doubts about whether Romney, long considered the most likely Republican nominee, can win over the broad swathe of Republican voters, particularly the most conservative ones who are the most unenthusiastic toward him.

But Santorum’s campaign is far behind Romney in fund-raising and in support by the Republican establishment. Santorum is not a wealthy man like Mitt, nor does he have a billionaire SuperPAC donor like Newt. Despite that, Santorum has managed to win 4 of 8 GOP contests to date (Mitt won 3; Newt won 1; and Ron has won none).

So if you want a real conservative to run against Obama this November, donate some dollars to Rick Santorum! Click here.

The next major Republican nominating contests are the Arizona and Michigan primaries on February 28, while Maine wraps up its caucuses this Saturday.

Layoffs in State-Local Governments But Not Federal Employees

Towns, cities, and states across America are laying off employees because of budget cuts. As examples:

  • In Minnesota, even after 22,000 government workers were hit with layoff notices, the state government closed down because Democratic Governor Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders failed to reach agreement on a $5 billion budget deficit.
  • On July 5, 2011, St. Petersburg Times reports that Florida is laying off 1,300 state employees, many of whom earned less than $30,000 a year. Among them is Toni Gugliotta, a Florida Highway Patrol community service officer who directed traffic and investigated minor crashes.

Toni Gugliotta is consoled by Florida Highway Patrol Captain Michelle Venero

  • The state of Connecticut is looking at massive layoffs. On June 30, 2011, state legislators gave Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a Democrat, dramatically expanded authority to make radical cuts to programs and employment. That could add another 1,000 job losses to the 6,500 already proposed by Malloy.
  • This morning, CBS News reports that the small East Texas town of Alto, population 1,200, has laid off its entire police force of 5 after the city council cut the police budget to zero to make up for a $185,000 budget deficit.

But none of this affects the federal government, including Michelle Obama’s 1.25 million dollars a year staff. (For a list of names and their salaries, see my post from last year, “Queen Michelle’s $1.25 Million Staff“.)

Not only are federal government employees paid better than their counterparts in the private sector (USA Today found that in 2009, federal civilian employees received an average salary of $81,258 and benefits worth $41,791, whereas private-sector workers got $50,462 in pay and $10,589 in benefits), the number of federal workers earning salaries of $150,000 or more has doubled under Obama.

Which is really odd because back in November 2010, Obama had proposed a two-year pay freeze for federal civilian employees! He grandly said at the time: “The hard truth is that getting this deficit under control is going to require some broad sacrifices, and that sacrifice must be shared by the employees of the federal government.”

After Congress gave its approval, Obama signed the pay freeze into law on December 22, 2010.

Then we found out that the “pay freeze” is a limited one. Obama’s proposal would stop across-the-board pay hikes set for January 2011 and January 2012, but many federal workers will receive other pay hikes — longevity increases (called steps), promotions in grade, bonuses, overtime and other cash payments.

Then we found out that employees of the legislative branch are exempt!

Instead of trimming the bloated federal bureaucracy, the number of federal government employees actually increased under Obama to 2.15 million at the end of 2010. Washington Post calls it “the largest federal work force in modern history.”

Worse yet, the number of limos owned by the federal government increased by 73% during the first two years of the Obama administration, according to an analysis of records by iWatch News. Most of the increase was recorded in Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

There’s a reason why they’re called “Limousine Liberals”!

UPDATE (7.7.11):

Surprise! Obama’s pay freeze proposal was just another one of his lies. The pay freeze didn’t affect the White House staff who, the last time I checked, are federal government employees.

Most staffers who were at the White House for more than a year got a salary bump: 75% from 2009 to 2010, and 54% (or 146 individuals) from 2010 to 2011. The average salary increase was 8%. If you look at only staffers who got raises, the average increase was twice that. [Source]

New Trend: Flash Mob Robbery

Flash mob” is a term coined in 2003 to denote a group of people, organized via social networking, who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment and/or satire.

An utterly charming flash mob was this one in Belgium’s Antwerp train station – a sheer delight:

The flash mob phenomenon has now degenerated into flash mob robbery of convenience and gas station stores across America. Here’s surveillance camera footage of one such robbery in 2009 in Stockton, California:

As reported by the Daily Mail, in St. Paul last Saturday, Feb. 19, 2011, up to 50 young people swarmed a Holiday store stealing juice, candy, soda, and every other type of junk food they could grab. The incident was caught on security cameras, which showed the robbers – most of them apparently teenagers – racing through the store and grabbing armfuls of whatever was in reach. The outnumbered clerks could only stand by helplessly and watch as the mob fled, scattering in all directions.

It’s not the first time that mob tactics have been used in a robbery in the area. Four months earlier, a BP petrol station was attacked in much the same way. Then, some 20 young people stormed the store, grabbing goods as they went. One assaulted the clerk on the way out, punching him several times in the face. That time, police used surveillance video to charge several teenagers with offences ranging from first-degree aggravated robbery to rioting and theft.

St Paul police spokesman Andy Skoogman said the so-called ‘mob robberies’ were still ‘far from a trend’. But he did admit they were ‘concerning’. ‘From our two cases, it’s a quick hit,’ he said. ‘They run in quickly, grab things, and run out.’ He urged store clerks and witnesses not to intervene if their shop should be attacked in the same way. ‘We want store employees to be witnesses to shoplifting, not victims of assault,’ he said.
