Last night left-wing ANTIFA activists tried and failed to shut down a CFACT forum featuring Canadian commentator Lauren Southern. After the forum, however, things got ugly. ANTIFA thugs were lurking nearby and attacked CFACT students as they left the event.

Plans by PolyMet Mining Corp. to open a copper and nickel mine in Minnesota are putting Governor Mark Dayton on the hot seat and dividing the Democratic Farmer-Labor Party just months before Gov. Dayton faces a reelection campaign in 2014. Green DFLers oppose the project, whereas Iron Range DFL members are among its strongest supporters. Demand for copper and nickel is soaring, and despite U.S. financial support for the Roy Hill Mine in Australia, the PolyMet mine would likely stimulate the local economy.
