Out of a playoff spot, United feeling the pressure

Out of a playoff spot, United feeling the pressure

Tension has ratcheted up on Minnesota United.

The Loons have fallen out of the seven MLS Cup Playoffs spots for the Western Conference. They had plans — which now might resemble hopes —
for a top-four spot and at least one game at Allianz Field.

One example of the tension growing is the club let go of the director of sports science as injuries during stacked up over the past two weeks.

The latest stage of United’s slide caused road rash in a 4-0 loss at Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday. The primary blight has been goal-scoring with only one West club, expansion side Austin FC, scoring fewer goals. Minnesota has 24 in 23 games.

It doesn’t get much easier with fourth-place L.A. Galaxy (11-8-5) coming to Allianz Field at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Two bits of positive news: Leading scorer Robin Lod could play more after coming back from a five-game absence for the K.C. game, and top
playmaker Emanuel Reynoso might be back after a three-game absence.

‘We will be ready’: Capitol Police prepare for Saturday rally

LAKE OZARK, Mo. – One month after a fatal shooting between motorcycle gangs outside a bar at the Lake of the Ozarks, more than 100,000 people are expected to attend the annual Bikefest Rally this weekend. 

Local and visitors can expect to hear the constant sound of motorcycles throughout the Lake until Sunday evening. Missouri State Highway Patrol said they have extra troopers in place to help, but the City of Lake Ozark said it’s not necessarily because of last month’s fatal shooting, instead, it’s because they don’t have enough officers. 

“We are talking about tens of thousands of people coming to a town of 1,800 people or a lake area,” public information officer for Lake Ozark Police Dan Field said. “You can’t expect to manage that many people with a police force of fewer than 14 people.”

Motorcycles have been coming to the Lake of the Ozarks for the annual Bikefest Rally for 15 years. It was started by local businesses for riders to enjoy the area. 

“Bikefest in this community is more or less the camaraderie of everyone,” John Brown from Stover, Missouri, said. “It put everyone together in one spot.”

Brown has been coming to the annual rally for ten years. He now is a member of Bikers For Christ, an organization that cooks a free breakfast for motorcyclists. 

“It’s just a good time,” Brown said. “We get together and share our motorcycles and our custom ideas.”

Field said this event is a huge boost to the local economy. 

“They [attendees] stay all over the lake,” Field said. “The motels are full, the AirBNBs are full, the campgrounds are full, the place just fills up.”

Since Wednesday, there has been the roar of motorcycles around the lake. 

“It will just be a constant rumble, constant,” Field said. 

“I love that sound by the way,” Nicole Beckman said while laughing. 

Beckman and her husband rode their motorcycles from Delavan, Wisconsin to the Lake, an eight-hour trip. It’s their first time attending Bikefest.

“On YouTube, we saw a lot of different people posting about being here for this week and it really encouraged us to come out and do it also,” Beckman said.

“I would come back in a heartbeat. We’re definitely planning out next year’s trip here already.”

Beckman said she heard about last month’s shooting that left one dead and injured four others outside Casablanca Bar and Grill on the Strip but said she has felt safe with her group. 

“We haven’t come across anybody that has been rude or cruel in any way,” Beckman said. “There’s people from everywhere, Illinois, New York, Iowa, Missouri, I mean you name it.”

Field said local and state law enforcement agencies will also be on hand this week patrolling. 

“A lot of police departments are down in numbers, including ours,” Field said. “Safety is our concern for all of our visitors and residents, whether it’s this weekend or any weekend.”

Since the shooting last month, Field said the only thing he’s noticed different on the Strip, is some restaurants and businesses have posted signs saying. “Absolutely: NO PATCHES, NO ROCKERS, NO COLORS ON PREMISE.” He believes it is regarding the fight between the motorcycle gangs in July. 

“Beyond that, it’s pretty much been business as usual,” Field said. “It’s been a great summer for us down here.”

Brown said he and other riders are just excited to enjoy a bike rally after others have been canceled or scaled back. 

“Most of them because of COVID they’re worried about, we’re not worried about it here,” Brown said. 

Bikefest goes through Sunday night. The Strip is closed to all vehicles other than motorcycles. The Bagnell Dam is also closed due to construction.

Physical CU Buffs expecting stern test from Minnesota

Colorado didn’t beat Texas A&M a week ago but the Buffaloes made a statement.

Standing toe-to-toe with one of the best and most physical football teams in the country signaled that CU might be finding an identity. As CU prepares to host Minnesota on Saturday, it has plenty of work to do on offense but it is establishing a culture of physicality.

“It was a culture we tried to create during spring ball,” defensive lineman Na’im Rodman said. “Then we just carried on to fall camp and I think it’s a part of us now. I think we’ve instilled it in ourselves and we know we can be one of the most physical teams anybody plays against every time they go against us.”

Bruins Notebook: Brad Marchand bullish on team’s chances

Bruins Notebook: Brad Marchand bullish on team’s chances

Brad Marchand has been forced to say goodbye to a lot of teammates in his decade-plus with the Bruins.

In fact, only he and his longtime centerman Patrice Bergeron remain from the 2011 Stanley Cup champion team.

But the club has really been losing foundational pieces from good teams of the last decade in the last couple of years. Former captain Zdeno Chara signed in Washington last season while Torey Krug moved to St. Louis. The turnover going into this season has been even greater, with the departure of David Krejci, Tuukka Rask (he’s rehabbing after hip surgery and still without a contract), Jaroslav Halak and Sean Kuraly. Newcomers up front will be Nick Foligno, Erik Haula and Tomas Nosek, joined by defenseman Derek Forbort, while the goaltending will be handled by Linus Ullmark and rookie Jeremy Swayman, at least for the time being.

That is an unusual amount of change for an organization that’s been pretty stable over the last decade and half. But Marchand is bullish on his team’s chances, believing that pulling on the spoked B will bring out the best in the new players.

“This is a little bit different than where we’ve been in the past. We’ve always had guys turn over every year. It’s part of the business. Guys come and go. But as you see guys who’ve been part of our core group (leave), it is a bit of a different feeling. But there’s a lot of excitement around our team,” said Marchand after captain’s practice on Friday. “We’re very deep and we know we have a great opportunity this year. I think there’s a lot of excitement around the guys coming in and the opportunity they’re going to have. A lot of guys coming from organizations that are not as good as ours and don’t have the structure and the history and the want to win that we have in here.

“I think guys are excited to be here and be part of this group.”

Marchand expects there will be some trial and error before things can come together.

“It’ll take a little bit of time to build some chemistry,” said Marchand. “We have a lot of new guys, a lot of new faces and we’ll have different line combinations that we’re going to roll through. Same on D. Communication between the D and the goalie and stuff like that, it all plays a role and it’ll take some time to come together. Maybe it’ll happen really quick but it usually takes a little bit of a working out process to figure out where guys fit. But I definitely think we’ve improved. There’s no question we got deeper all the way through our lineup.

“We’ve got a lot of guys who are excited to be a part of this group and I think that’s the thing. When you have guys that want to be here, want to win, want to take a shot and give it their all, a lot of character guys, you set yourself up for success and I think that’s where we’re at. To win the Cup, you need everything to go your way. I say that every year. You need all the breaks to go your way, you need the right calls, the right bounces, you’ve got to stay healthy, that’s the main thing. Hopefully things line up for us and we can get back in that position. But we’ve got a long season before the playoffs even begin.”

Hall wishes Krejci well

As the offseason this summer, there was some thought the futures of free agent linemates Taylor Hall and Krejci would somehow be intertwined. But Hall said while he would have liked more time with Krejci as his centerman, that was never the case.

“I had no idea what he was going to do and I didn’t really want to ask him about it or tell him what I was going to do,” said Hall, who signed a four-year deal while Krejci went back to the Czech Republic. “I wanted him to come back for the right reasons if that’s what he wanted to do. I think for him, he’s probably having a blast playing back home. I have no idea what it’s like to move away to a different continent at 16 or 17 and not really come back to play there. So I’m sure he’s having a blast. I don’t know if we’ll ever see him back here again. There’s a lot of speculation, but honestly I think everyone in our dressing room wishes him all the best.”

Hall had no inside information on who his new pivot was going to be — Charlie Coyle is expected to get first crack — but believes that second line can be successful no matter who’s in the middle.

“Honestly, it doesn’t change my preparation or focus for the year. My job is to come in and play as well as I can and whatever line I’m slotted in, hopefully I can drive that line like I have in the past, whoever the centerman is,” said Hall. “I imagine I’ll play with (Craig Smith) on the right side. I think that we can work with anyone. In signing here, I never had a guarantee that Krejci was going to be back. I just wanted to play for this team and help this team win a Stanley Cup. Whatever I have to do contribute to that is what I’ll do and I’m sure Smitty and whoever we’re playing with feels the same.”

Marchand excited for Olympic shot

Marchand was bitterly disappointed in 2018 when the NHL decided not to go to the Olympics in South Korea, but he should have a very good chance of being one of Canada’s left wings in Beijing now that the league is participating in the 2022 Games.

“For all the NHL players who gets to participate, it’s a tremendous opportunity and one that I think guys have earned,” said Marchand, who proved himself on the international stage at the 2016 World Cup. “This is obviously the best league in the world and that’s what the Olympics is, it’s about putting the best players on the ice together and seeing which country takes it all. I think it’s a great opportunity for all the NHL players that’ll be there. I would love and really honor that opportunity if it comes.”

Andrew Bacevich: Gen. Milley did the wrong thing for honorable reasons. We need new rules for starting nuclear war.

Published

Gen. Mark Milley says calls to China were ‘perfectly’ within scope of job

A new book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa contains a singularly startling allegation. In the waning weeks of the Trump administration, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, twice called his counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng, of the People’s Liberation Army, offering assurances that the United States was not about to launch an attack against China.

“If we’re going to attack,” Milley told Li, according to Woodward and Costa, “I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

The surprise turns out to be the revelation of Milley’s actions. Some in the Defense Department may have known about the calls, but one thing seems clear: President Donald Trump, the U.S. commander in chief, did not. Milley acted of his own volition, without prior presidential approval. On that point, Christopher Miller, then serving as acting Defense secretary, is emphatic, describing Milley’s actions to Fox News as a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination.”

Providing adversaries with advance notice of U.S. military actions does not number among the prescribed duties of the chairman of the joint chiefs. Arguably, the Woodward-Costa allegations, if accurately reported, qualify as treasonous. At the very least, they raise serious doubts about Milley’s respect for the bedrock principle of civilian control of the military. To state the matter bluntly, when adherence to that principle raised the possibility of an outcome not to Milley’s liking, he seemingly granted himself an exemption.

Of course, all of this happened in a specific context: Woodward and Costa’s chilling account is only the latest to depict the unraveling Trump presidency following the November election. Unwilling to accept defeat, the incumbent all but ceased to govern and instead devoted himself to overturning the election’s results by any means necessary, violating the rule of law and waiving the Constitution.

Milley’s response, however, shouldn’t have been to do likewise.

By statute, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff advises the commander in chief. Choosing to accept, amend or disregard that advice, the president then decides, with military leaders obliged to implement those decisions. Through his communications with the Chinese general, Milley signaled his intention to forestall or undermine a presidential decision not to his liking. Opposing a possible war with China, Milley exerted himself to prevent Trump from starting one, communicating his intentions to Chinese authorities while the American people were kept in the dark.

Was Trump contemplating an attack on China? We don’t know; Trump himself denies it. Would any such attack have produced disastrous results, as Milley seems to have feared? Almost certainly. Yet while allowing that Milley’s intentions may have been honorable, his actions were categorically wrong and set a dangerous precedent.

But let’s be clear about where the problem lies: It’s with the existing U.S. system for controlling the use of nuclear weapons. That system placed Milley in a difficult predicament. Since the dawn of the nuclear era, Americans have entrusted presidents with the authority to initiate Armageddon on their own. Even though held in abeyance since Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, that authority may well stand as the ultimate symbol of the power invested in the U.S. presidency.

The practice is also bizarre and dangerous in the extreme, as the meltdown that concluded the Trump presidency should remind us. And to suggest that Trump’s departure from office eliminates that danger overlooks the very real possibility that another Trump-like figure — or Trump himself — may win the White House again. Americans are not immune from conferring the presidency on figures who may not be models of stability and good sense.

If the United States is intent on maintaining at the ready a large nuclear strike force, as is apparently the case, the nation needs comprehensive safeguards to prevent reckless and ill-considered decisions regarding their use. We should not have to rely on American generals exerting themselves to check presidents who appear to have gone off the rails.

The essential fix is clear: Congress should act to curb the president’s authority to employ nuclear weapons, requiring decisions on the use of nuclear weapons to be made collectively rather than by a single individual, with senior military officers still obliged to stay in their lane.

A useful first step would be for the Senate and House to pass the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2021, sponsored by Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance). The bill would not prevent actions to defend the United States, but it would prohibit any president from launching a nuclear first strike without a prior congressional declaration of war. Sadly, there are few indications that our legislators with their pronounced aversion to collective responsibility will take up this issue anytime soon.

Milley’s questionable regard for the principle of civilian control was wrong and should be condemned. Yet given what we are learning know about Trump’s state of mind during the last weeks of his presidency, Milley’s actions also qualified as prudent. “It is breathtaking to think of the lengths that Milley and others went to avert the disasters Trump was creating at the end of his presidency,” Sen. Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., told reporters.

Perhaps so. But Milley’s audacity is hardly less breathtaking. It could well be that the nation owes the general a considerable debt of gratitude. Although President Joe Biden has expressed his continuing confidence in Milley, his clear duty is to fire the general forthwith.

Increased police presence at Lansingburgh Schools after concerning social media threats

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Friday, September 17, Troy Police said they will provide police staffing at Lansingburgh schools for the day after a social media post suggested violence will occur at a Lansingburgh school.

Detectives investigated the social media threats overnight and said they had no credibility.

Troy Police will still be adding police staffing at schools to provide additional safety and calm any community concerns. “Because of the reaches of social media— this thing went viral pretty quick. We still thought it would best have a extended presence at the schools during the day, largely just to calm to nerves — there’s really no security threat that we see,” says Troy’s Assistant Chief of Police Steven M. Barker.

At the Lansingburgh Schools, there will be a School Resource Officer assigned and another officer within the school for the entire day. Also, patrol resources will be at the schools throughout the day with specific assignments at arrival and dismissal.

Some parents are students tell NEWS10 they felt relieved seeing the heavy police presence during Friday’s dismissal. “I feel secure that my kids are safe right now. It’s nerve wrecking they have to see this — no one wants to go to school and see they have to be guarded by police because of a threat. It is scary for my children and we educate them the best we can,” says Lansingburgh parent Sarah Smith.

After several concerns, LCSD Antonio Abitabile sent an email to parents this morning regarding the threats.

…We take these threats seriously and have spent the better part of last night investigating these allegations.  By working with the Troy Police Department and our leadership team, we have gotten to the source of these allegations and determined that they are not credible. As a safety precaution, the Troy PD will have a heavy presence around our schools, starting with arrival this morning. We will continue to monitor this situation throughout the day and contact all of you again if anything changes. Additionally, I believe that we should realize a drastic improvement with the efficiency of our bus transportation.
