First Sunday in July! The summer is moving on quick, but we at the Northern Alliance Radio Network are HERE FOR IT! Today's 2-hour edition of my radio show The Closer gets started at 1:00 PM Central Time.

I will throw in my two cents regarding Colin Kaepernick discouraging Nike from manufacturing a shoe with a logo of the Betsy Ross designed flag. Also, are "Never Trump" Republicans obligated to vote for the Democrat presidential candidate in 2020?

Locally, I will weigh in on the St Louis Park city council barring the Pledge of Allegiance prior to their meetings.

At 2:15, Super Bowl champ/singer/brain injury advocate Ben Utecht will stop by to promote a big time musical event taking place in the Twin Cities later this month. The subject of football is also likely to come up.

So please call (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to weigh in on any of the topics we plan on addressing.

You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 or, if you're near downtown Minneapolis/West Metro area, 107.5 FM on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link, or check us out via iheart radio as well as Amazon Alexa (just say "Alexa, play The Patriot Minneapolis"). If you're unable to tune in live, please check out my podcast page for the latest show post.

And if you're so inclined, follow along on Twitter at #NARNShow or "Like" our Facebook page.

Until then.....
