  • Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud on Lockdown for Complaint of Man Displaying Gun

    11/17/2016 6:03:07 PM PST · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 10 replies ^ | 11/17/16 | Brent Palm
    The Crossroads Center Mall in St. Cloud was placed on lockdown Thursday night after a complaint of a man displaying a gun.   Officers from St. Cloud and Waite Park were searching the mall for suspects as a precautionary measure. Police say the initial report indicated a man and woman were arguing outside the mall when two men approached them and one lifted his shirt to show the couple a gun in his waistband. The gun was not pointed at the couple, no threats were made and no were injuries reported.   Officers say the two men were seen entering the...
  • Reality Trumped Perception for Jihadist at Crossroads Mall Gun Free Zone

    While the NO HANDGUNS sign is cut off in this photograph, it clearly shows that the Crossroads Center, where the Islamic mass stabbing terror attack took place, was and is posted as a Gun Free Zone.In Minnesota, the sign has no legal weight.  Minnesota law prevents malls from banning guns from the common areas, but malls are not prevented from asking that visitors not carry guns.  The sign reads “please while shopping”.  That makes it a request, not a command.The difference can easily be lost on a someone who is not well schooled in the niceties of the law. ...

    Trump says he'll rebuild the U.S. military and our missile defense in particular, but avoid committing U.S. forces overseas. The neo-conservatives never will forgive him for this. It means that they are out of a job, and when they say that Trump means "the end of the Republican Party," they mean the end of the Republican Party that used to employ them. Robert Kagan and Max Boot have gone to the Clinton camp. A Trump presidency almost certainly means that Chinese and Russian influence will grow faster and with fewer obstacles than it might have otherwise. That is not entirely...

    As Donald Trump picks up momentum, the chances of a well-funded assault to block him from the Republican presidential nomination are dramatically dwindling, according to interviews with about a dozen donors and operatives who are appalled by the billionaire real estate showman's campaign. The party's elite donor class has mostly closed its checkbooks to groups dedicated to stopping Trump, while the outfits that have built massive reserves are increasingly deciding to forgo anti-Trump campaigns, despite widespread fears that he is making a mockery of conservatism and could undermine Republicans up and down the ballot. The deepest-pocketed operation on the right,...

    Many have theorized on here that Rove was working to undermine Walker. As it turns out, his Super Pac is in talks with Walkers campaign. This is from the article in the NY Times. 2013. A fund-raising advisory group formed by Crossroads after Mr. Barbour’s departure failed to accomplish much. More recently, Carl Forti, the longtime Crossroads political director who simultaneously worked on the pro-Romney super PAC Restore our Future, in 2012, is said by four people with direct knowledge of the discussions to have been in talks with at least one 2016 campaign — that of Gov. Scott Walker...

    Karl Rove created a stir with his recent suggestion that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton may have suffered traumatic brain injury in December 2012. Speaking at a conference in California, he noted, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” Let’s ignore the media hyperventilating and look at what Rove actually suggested. Secretary Clinton reportedly “fainted, fell and banged her head,” as The Daily Beast put it, suffering a subdural hematoma, or a hemorrhage between her...

    After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove's three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013. .... Since then, as Breitbart News reported, "Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him." Aware of this, Rove's Crossroads network has reloaded with groups that share donors but are technically not affiliated on paper with them.

    New York Times ^ | February 1, 2014 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE
    Insurgent conservative organizations raised more money last year than the leading Republican establishment outside groups, whose bulging bank accounts and ties to major donors have been their most potent advantage in the struggle over the G.O.P.'s future, according to interviews with officials and new campaign filings. The shift in fortunes could have an enormous impact in 2014, as warring Republican factions prepare to square off in a series of Senate and House primaries around the country and Republican leaders seek to rein in activists who they believe have fractured and endangered the party with policies that alienate independent-leaning voters. Emboldened...

    About 200 donors on the email distribution list for Karl Rove's group "American Crossroads" may be receiving an interesting message Thursday: Don't donate to American Crossroads. Conservative activist Brent Bozell, chairman of the group ForAmerica, obtained the distribution list and plans to send a letter blasting Crossroads' role in last year's election and the creation of its new independent group for the 2014 mid-term elections. Rove, the former top political adviser to President George W. Bush, generated strong pushback from tea party groups earlier this year when he announced the formation of another offshoot, "Conservative Victory Project," dedicated to helping...

    Oddly enough, perhaps the biggest loser in last week’s Republican debacle wasn’t even on the ballot. He didn’t shake a single hand, nuzzle the napes of any newborn babes or promise eager voters pie in the sky or peace on Earth. His name was Karl Rove. And all he actually did was squander a staggering $300 million by backing candidates who turned winnable races into laughable routs, producing tepid ads transforming would-be zealots into couch potatoes and firmly establishing himself as the political world’s pre-eminent empty-suit analyst. Perhaps even worse, he set himself up as the clearinghouse for wealthy conservative...

    "Rove is pondering new missions for Crossroads to address weaknesses laid bare by the GOP’s back-to-back failures to win the White House and the fact that the party fell short when expected to win back the Senate." "Where until now it battled only in general elections and against Democrats, Crossroads is considering whether to start picking sides in Republican primaries. The idea would be to boost the candidate it deems most electable and avoid nominating the kind of flawed and extreme ones who cost the party what should otherwise have been easy Senate wins in Florida, Missouri and Indiana." "That,...

    Crossroads of the West bills itself as the biggest traveling gun show in America, a bastion for constitutional rights where freedom lovers can exchange weapons, ammunition and ideas. The 35-year-old company promotes events in four states – Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah – and last year’s shows drew more than 407,000 customers at up to $16 bucks a pop. Last weekend, Crossroads occupied the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Phoenix, and although these expos swing through the area regularly, the parking lot filled up fast. There’s a seasonal element to the high traffic. Monsoon thunderstorms have cooled the desert lately, and...

    Crossroads GPS has removed its Senate race ads from the Missouri airwaves in the wake of controversial comments made by Republican nominee and U.S. Senate hopeful Rep. Todd Akin. Politico first reported that Crossroads would pull its ads. The news comes the day after Akin, speaking about his position on abortion in a television interview, claimed that abortion in cases of rape was rarely an issue because “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” The advocacy group had spent millions of dollars on ads in the state to help...

    American Crossroads, the 527 organization co-founded by Karl Rove, released a new video titled “Build” today, hitting President Obama for telling Americans earlier this month, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Crossroads put the speech on an iPad and showed it to small business owners across the country. Some of the reactions in the video: “Unbelievable.” “What an insult.” “I am outraged.” “I can’t believe he just said that.” “I can’t believe the president of the United States could say that I have not made this.” “We risk everything every day…”...

    Donald Trump is fuming at the man George Bush called “the Brain” and says he may target him just as he did Rosie O’Donnell. Trump is telling business associates that Karl Rove will lead Republicans right down the drain just like he did with Bush’s final moments in office. Trump is particularly angry because he says he donated mega-bucks to Rove’s political committees last year but now finds the strategist on Fox News attacking him and the idea of a possible presidential bid. -snip- Trump already had voiced his displeasure with Rove, who appeared on Fox recently and slammed the...

    Crossroads GPS, a conservative advocacy organization, just wanted to know about the waivers the Health and Human Services Department was issuing on health care reform. Claiming their Freedom of Information Act requests were getting stonewalled, the organization is suing. “Until President Obama is willing to grant the entire country a waiver from Obamacare, his administration needs to come clean on how they decide who wins and loses in the waiver lottery,” Steven Law, president of Crossroads GPS, said in a statement. Crossroads GPS and American Crossroads were key players in the midterm elections, raising millions for Republican congressional candidates. Former...

    *snip* Compare this with the House campaign body, the NRCC. After getting clobbered over the NY-23 race and Dede Scozzafava, the NRCC took a hands off approach and let local voters choose their candidates. Not the NRSC. It doubled up around the country igniting a civil war with the grassroots — a civil war that would have never happened but their getting into Florida and doubling down. The NRSC’s argument amounts to telling the world that voters exercising their right to pick their candidates are stupid and Jim DeMint is stupid for siding with the voters. One final thought —...
