    A former Black Lives Matter activist is making stunning accusations against fellow agitators in an unprompted YouTube video.Trey Turner, who says he protested police killings in St. Paul, Minnesota, created a video to expose what he learned while he was active with the group.Turner said he joined Black Lives Matter after the shooting of Jamar Clark last March, and that he was a part of the “4th Precinct shutdown.” He said he joined because activists insisted the movement was peaceful and “didn’t hate whites.” According to Turner, he was an active participant in the protests at the governor’s mansion after...

Gates will open at 11 a.m. Tickets are required and can be requested on Trump’s website....

    What Does St. Paul Mean by “The Flesh”? Msgr. Charles Pope • October 11, 2016 • In the first reading at Mass today (Wednesday of the 28th Week), St. Paul enumerates the sins that proceed from the flesh. There are many references to “the flesh” in the New Testament, especially in the letters of St. Paul. The phrase is commonly misunderstood as being synonymous with the physical body or merely with sexual sin.Although there are many places in Scripture in which the word “flesh” alone refers to the physical body, when it is preceded by the definite article (“the”),...

He is accused of threatening to blow up the Tawfiq Islamic Center. The complaint says the mosque received an anonymous handwritten letter on Sept. 30 that threatened to “blow up your building with all you immigrants in it.” …

    St. Paul police arrested at least 46 people Tuesday near the Governor’s Residence on Summit Avenue in a day marked by tense standoffs and groups of protesters being driven to jail in buses. The location has been the focal point of protests for 20 days, beginning just after a St. Anthony police officer fatally shot Philando Castile in Falcon Heights the night of July 6. Police shut down Summit Avenue in front of the residence for about a week and a half and then reopened it, but protesters closed it down again Sunday night. On Tuesday morning police made an...

    ACLU of Minnesota wants St. Paul to drop all charges against 46 people who shut down Interstate 94 Saturday night during a protest of Philando Castile’s death. Mayor Chris Coleman characterized the demonstration as a riot after it turned violent, leaving 21 officers injured. “These charges appear to be based on the actions of what most parties, including a St. Paul police spokesperson, agree were outside agitators,” said ACLU Minnesota’s executive director, Charles Samuelson, in a written statement Tuesday

The attacks have gone on for three hours. Pictures at link.

    Some St. Paul public schools are unsafe for students and teachers, writes Katherine Kersten, a senior policy fellow at the Center for the American Experiment, in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. A Central High teacher was “choked and body-slammed by a student and hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury,” while another teacher was knocked down and suffered a concussion while trying to stop a fight between fifth-grade girls. There have been six high school riots or brawls this school year. Hoping to close the racial suspension gap, the district has spent millions of dollars on “white privilege” and “cultural competency” training for...

    Black Lives Matter protesters vowed Monday to press on with their plan to demonstrate at the Mall of America on the busy shopping day before Christmas Eve, despite the mall's efforts to stop them. The mall requested a temporary restraining order barring the group from staging its protest Wednesday over the police killing of a black man last month. It is hoping to prevent the type of disruption that thousands of protesters caused last year, when stores had to temporarily close and dozens of people were arrested. [...] Those behind this year's planned protest at the Mall of America want...

As attendees packed a reception hall in Minnesota on the first night of Senator Ted Cruz’s seven-day, 12-city tour, they were greeted by an uncommon supporter: a costumed Santa Claus, posing with children and more than a few adults beside a fireplace.

    Donald Trump wasn't banned from the city of St. Paul. City Council Member Dai Thao and his colleagues acknowledged Wednesday that they cannot do that, even if they don't like what he has to say about immigrants, refugees and Muslims. But, by a 6-1 vote, the council told the outspoken presidential candidate who leads the Republican field that they "condemn" his "anti-Muslim, anti-refugee and anti-immigrant speech." Council Member Dan Bostrom was the lone member to vote against the resolution, saying that while he may not like what Trump says, he would not try to limit his right to say it....

    The St. Paul City Council will vote next week on a resolution that condemns "anti-Muslim and anti-immigration speech" from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The resolution, sponsored by council member Dai Thao, is on the agenda for next Wednesday, Dec. 16. In the document, Thao says that the city has a rich history of accepting immigrants and refugees and strives to be the "most livable" city in America for all people. He said the "anti-Muslim and anti-immigration speech" from Trump conflicts with the values of the city of St. Paul, and he wants the city to officially condemn it. The...

    The leader of Black Lives Matter St. Paul kicked off his campaign for a seat in the state Legislature, challenging the only black member of the Minnesota House for her seat. The Pioneer Press reports that Rashad Turner, 30, a lifelong St. Paul resident, will challenge Rep. Rena Moran next year. The DFL incumbent is in her third term representing Frogtown, Midway, Summit-University, and portions of the North End and Cathedral Hill in St Paul. The Star Tribune’s story said that Turner indicated that he thought not enough progress has been made in St. Paul’s communities of color during Rep....

    The Satanic Temple has a message for alienated U.S. Muslims: Let’s be friends. American satanists who recently tried to install a bronze Baphomet statue near a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma now want to ally with alienated Muslims. The organization’s offer comes less than one week after Islamic terror attacks in Paris, France, killed 129 and injured more than 350. “If there is anyone in the San Jose region who is Muslim and afraid to leave their home out of fear for some kind of backlash, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would be glad to escort...

    A chant heard Saturday at the Black Lives Matter protest outside of the Minnesota State Fair has police outraged. Protesters were captured on camera yelling "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" during the march in St. Paul. The chant was viewed by some law enforcement members as targeting police officers. St. Paul Police Federation President Dave Titus said in a Facebook post that the chant promotes death to cops. He scolded the public officials who praised the march and the St. Paul Police Department’s response, saying, “Any city official claiming this march was a success or a positive...

    The political class -- they build themselves new office buildings and such -- live in a different universe from the rest of us, and the rest of us are getting routinely pickpocketed. No greater proof of this truth exists than the remarks of St. Paul's own City Council Member Dave Thune last week after Metro Transit released the financial figures for the first six months of the Green Line. Passengers boarding the Green Line from its debut in June, 2014 through the end of the year paid $6.21 million into the farebox, or about 35.8 percent of what it costs...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. – Have the taxpayers of St. Paul spent nearly $3 million over the past five years to bring chaos and danger to their schools and students? Apparently so. In 2010, the St. Paul school district began a contractual relationship with the Pacific Educational Group, a San Francisco-based organization that tries to help public schools deal with achievement and disciplinary issues involving black students. PEG packages and sells the concept of victimization, for a very high price. It claims that the American education system is built around white culture, tradition and social norms – aka “white privilege” –...

    Aviation buff John Zimmerman was at a weekly gathering of neighbors Friday night when he noticed something peculiar: a small plane circling a route overhead that didnÂ’t make sense to him. It was dark, so a sightseeing flight didnÂ’t make sense, and when Zimmerman pulled up more information on an aviation phone app he routinely checks, he had immediate concerns. The planeÂ’s flight path, recorded by the website flightradar24.com, would eventually show that it circled downtown Minneapolis, the Mall of America and Southdale Center at low altitude for hours starting at 10:30 p.m., slipping off radar just after 3 a.m....

    While Metro Transit's Green Line isn't exactly paying for itself through passenger fares, it's doing a better job than most other Minnesota public transit options. Passengers boarding the state's second light-rail line from its debut in June through the end of 2014 paid $6.21 million into the fare box, or about 35.8 percent of what it costs to operate the 11-mile route. "I think 35 percent is a really good percentage," said St. Paul City Council member Dave Thune. "I love it. I think it has been a success. The kind of traffic it's seeing, going from one end of...
