  • In 66% White/13% Black St. Paul, Minnesota, Blacks Are Responsible for Nearly Every Homicide (2019 Rate Doubled Prior Year)

    St. Paul, Minnesota is 66 percent white. It’s 13 percent black. And yet violent crime, just as is documented in every American citizen, has a well-known racial bias. The descendants of Scandinavians aren’t killing one another drug deals or social media beefs; those primarily descended from Africans have a strange proclivity to engaging in the opposite behavior of Scandinavians, though. Remember, despite being only 13 percent of St. Paul’s population, blacks are doing everything they can to betray the city’s slogan of America’s “most livable city.”[As 2019 closes, St. Paul’s homicide rate doubles last year’s: Police understand why, but solutions...
  • Carter to address shooting that left 2 hurt near Allianz Field (MN)

    St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter is speaking out about the most recent shooting in the city. Two males were shot just blocks away from Allianz Field during Sunday night's Minnesota United game. Monday morning, the mayor is making a new plea to stop gun violence. Carter is calling on all city and community leaders to come together to stop the senseless violence. Sunday night's shooting happened outside a laundromat at about 7:30 p.m. just blocks from Allianz Field where 20,000 people were attending the playoff soccer game. The two males, identified as a 16-year-old and 24-year-old, were shot but are...
  • "Encouragement for St. Timidity" (Sermon on 2 Timothy 1:1-14)

    10/05/2019 5:29:08 PM PDT · by Charles Henrickson · 4 replies ^ | October 6, 2019 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “Encouragement for St. Timidity” (2 Timothy 1:1-14) Fear, or timidity, can paralyze a person and render him ineffective. This is true when it comes to our life as Christians. We live in a hostile world. We’re in enemy territory. The world is not friendly to the Christian faith. Where will we find the courage we need to be faithful Christians? Faithful Christians are those not ashamed of the gospel, nor afraid of suffering for it. Not ashamed, not afraid. The alternative is that we turn into tame and timid “people-pleasers.” St. Paul addresses this issue when he writes to Timothy...
  • Would St. Paul be politically active if he was an American citizen today?

    Christian Post ^ | Michael Brown
    Are American Christians too politicized? Or are we not politically minded enough? And what about Christian leaders in America? Are they (we) too outspoken politically? Or perhaps not enough?I decided to come at this from another angle, asking this question on Twitter: “What's your opinion? If Paul was alive today and a USA citizen, how political would he be?”Since Twitter allows four possible responses to a poll, and since there are constraints as to how many characters can be used for each response, I offered these options, with the responses placed here in parentheses: He would not even vote (30...

    A St. Paul City Council member is being urged to resign for past anti-gay posts on Facebook. Gay advocates from Minnesota's Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party are presenting a resolution Sunday at the party's convention in St. Paul asking for Kassim Busuri to resign. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Busuri was appointed to represent Ward 6 in January. Busuri says his Muslim faith does not support homosexuality and that criticizing his previous posts amounts to Islamophobia. [SNIP]
  • Somalis have Changed Minneapolis

    06/03/2019 6:03:46 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 77 replies ^ | Sunny Lohman
    Everyone not lying to themselves predicted when the federal government under Bill Clinton – aided and abetted by Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities and World Relief Minnesota -- plopped 30,000 Somalis down into the midst of the kind, virtue-signaling, eager-to-help Midwesterners of Minneapolis (of which I am one) that it would lead to some grave consequences for our community. Now, due to continuing refugee placements as well as chain migration there are an estimated 80,000 Somalis living in the Twin Cities metro area, or more like 79,000 if you subtract those who’ve left the country to join terrorist organizations like...

    In a story unearthed by U.S. Liberty Wire , citing a deep-weeds Minnesota state political news site , here's some new information on the decisionmaking of Minnesota leftist Democrat and House Foreign Affairs committee member, Rep. Ilhan Omar, dating from her days in the Minnesota statehouse: On Thursday, members of the Minnesota House voted to pass H.F. 1397, a bill which would give life insurance companies the right to deny payouts to beneficiaries whose loved one died while committing an act of terrorism. In a bipartisan effort, Republicans and Democrats joined together to pass the bill 127-2. Reps. Ilhan Omar...
  • Landlords Claim Twin Cities’ Voter Law Violates Their Free Speech

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (CN) — Under the threat of criminal prosecution, landlords say they are forced to be the carriers of the government’s “ideological” message in violation of their protected free speech. A group of landlords say they will be criminally prosecuted if they do not comply with city policies by providing information to their tenants on where and how to register to vote. Minnesota Voters Alliance sued the cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis in federal court on Wednesday. They claimed city codes requiring them to provide voter registration information to their tenants violate their First Amendment right to...
  • People Arming Themselves in St. Paul Neighborhood in Response to Summer Crime

    08/01/2018 1:04:39 PM PDT · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 13 replies ^ | 7/31/18 | Jay Kolls
    There are at least two dozen people on St. Paul's North End obtaining permits to carry a concealed weapon in response to a summer increase in crime. St. Paul Police spokesperson, Steve Linders, said police are also stepping up patrols. "Swarming the area with as many officers as possible, using more bike patrols to increase presence and there is now one squad car dedicated entirely to responding to shots fired in the area," Linders said. The North End area that's seen the usual jump in summer crime lies primarily between Front and Larpenteur Avenues and 35E and Dale Street. Tin...

    The Pew Charitable Trusts ^ | April 2, 2018 | Martha T. Moore
    The most popular place to put a city park is, increasingly, on a highway. Cities looking to boost their downtowns, or to improve downtrodden neighborhoods, are creating “highway cap parks” on decks constructed over freeways that cut through the urban center. Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Denver and Dallas have deck parks underway. Atlanta, Houston, Minneapolis and Santa Monica, California, are among the cities considering similar projects. In crowded cities, highway deck parks are a way to create new acreage and provide green space that can spur downtown development. Capping a highway to create a park also can reconnect urban neighborhoods sliced apart...
  • The Film, ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’ is a moving examination of faith and courage

    Kansas City Star ^ | 03/22/2018 | BY ANN HORNADAY (From Washington Post)
    “Paul, Apostle of Christ” comes from the Affirm label, which has produced such Christian-themed dramas as “Heaven Is for Real.” Less interested in blunt proselytizing than more open-ended explorations of faith and its challenges, Affirm films have gratifyingly avoided the kind of Sunday-school pageantry that characterizes so many movies of the genre. “Paul, Apostle of Christ” is no exception. A portrait of the titular Christian convert and leader of the early church as he faces imprisonment and martyrdom at the hands of Roman oppressors, this absorbing drama benefits from lush production values and first-rate performances from a cast of seasoned...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — After Tnuza Jamal Hassan was stopped from flying to Afghanistan last September, she allegedly told FBI agents that she wanted to join al-Qaida and marry a fighter, and that she might even wear a suicide belt. She also said she was angry at U.S. military actions overseas and admitted that she tried to encourage others to “join the jihad in fighting,” but she said she had no intention of carrying out an attack on U.S. soil, according to prosecutors. Despite her alleged admissions, she was allowed to go free. Four months later, the 19-year-old was arrested for...

    A Minnesota woman whom prosecutors said set fires at a Minnesota university out of anger because of U.S. military actions overseas was charged with terrorism Wednesday after she allegedly tried to assist a terrorist organization last year. Tnuza Jamal Hassan, 19, was charged in federal court for attempting to provide material support to Al Qaeda, lying to the FBI and arson, Fox 9 reported. She was initially arrested Jan. 17 after she set eight fires in seven buildings on the St. Catherine University campus in St. Paul. The Minneapolis woman admitted to investigators that she started the fires...

    Are We Modern Clergy Even Remotely Close to St. Paul’s Description of the Earliest Preachers? Msgr. Charles Pope • July 5, 2017 • It is amazing to think that 30 of the first 33 Popes died as martyrs. Of the other three, two died in exile and only one died in his bed. It’s hard to imagine such suffering today among the lowliest of priests let alone Church prelates.On the Feast of St. Thomas Apostle (July 3rd) we read this description of the apostolic life by St. Paul:As I see it, God has put us apostles at the end...

    A Battle Plan from St. Paul Msgr. Charles Pope • October 10, 2016 • The epistle in the Extraordinary Form this past Sunday (21st Sunday after Pentecost) was particularly appropriate for our times. The Holy Spirit, writing through St. Paul, gives us important reminders of how to live and fight as true soldiers of Christ in a world increasingly gripped by satanic darkness. Let’s examine the whole passage and then reflect on its teachings:Be strengthened in the Lord and in the might of His power. Put on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against...

    Christian tradition maintains that after Rome nearly burned to the ground, Nero engaged in a brutal crackdown on Christians which led to the executions of Peter and Paul. On the evening of July 18, in the scorching summer of 64 CE, a fire started in a shop under the Circus Maximus in Rome. The fire quickly spread to nearby homes and businesses and the Circus itself. The fire burned for six days, ravaging the city. It left only four of Rome’s fourteen quarters untouched. The reigning emperor, Nero, a man known for his cruelty and love of theater, scapegoated the...

I preached out of a text from St. Paul to Timothy, whom St. Paul considered a son in the faith:But as for you, O man of God … Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the...

We just saw a poll.” The Trump rally will be at 2 p.m. at the Sun Country hangar at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, located at 2005 Cargo Road. Gates will open at 11 a.m. Tickets are required and can be requested on Trump’s website....
