    Watching several minutes of CNN’s punditry coverage of President Trump’s Harrisburg rally is exceptionally interesting from the perspective of watching what happens when full-throated liberal media ideology is confronted by a political opponent inoculated from battered politician syndrome. The media cries foul. Many intellectually honest people throughout the political era have noted that liberalism -in its modern presentation- is similar to a psychological condition. That’s true. However, the actual condition displayed is more aptly described as Borderline Personality . The advancement of modern liberalism is contingent upon their abused recipient cowering to the demands of the progressive abuser. Modern democrats,...

    Pennsylvania’s Cuban rum run got its start in a chance meeting last fall in the parking lot in front of the state Capitol. “‘You know, we have rum,’” a visiting Cuban government liaison told state Sen. Chuck McIlhinney, who was walking to his car when he was introduced to her as the senator whose committee oversees how alcohol is sold in Pennsylvania. “And I’m like, ‘Yeah, we should buy some.’” A few months later, the agency that controls Pennsylvania’s 600-plus state-owned wine and liquor stores is working to lift the United States’ 55-year-old embargo on Cuban rum, one of the...

    President Donald Trump announced his intention to hold a "big rally" in Pennsylvania next Saturday, a date which marks his 100th day in office, and coincides with the White House Correspondent's Dinner—an event he previously declined to attend.... ...Interestingly, however, the rally will be held on the same night as the White House Correspondent's Dinner, and threatens to overshadow the gala known derisively as "Nerd Prom." Amid a spat with the press in February, Trump declared he wouldn't attend, departing with a long-held tradition where sitting presidents rub shoulders with the very reporters who cover the White House and Congress.

The event also falls on the same night as the White House Correspondent's Dinner, which Trump has decided to skip, breaking years of precedent. The president spent much time campaigning in Pennsylvania, and taking the state proved a...

Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz faces the potential of up to 25 years and a $500,000 fine after admitting to a charge of conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State group and to transmitting a communication containing a threat, both felonies.

    Did you notice the labor that went into painting each and every block of the new sound barrier? On the Pennsylvania Turnpike between Route 83 and the Interstate 283/Harrisburg East exits, recently I have observed contractors on lifts individually spray-painting each and every block on the sound barrier/retaining wall. I was hoping what I was seeing was not what I thought, so wasteful. But the main question is why was this level and type of expense happening at all? Is natural concrete not acceptable for cars on the turnpike traveling 70 miles per hour to see? The concrete barriers in...

    HARRISBURG — Motorists blow past Pennsylvania Turnpike toll booths every year, resulting in millions of dollars of losses. The agency that manages more than 500 miles of highway is supporting legislation to punish those scofflaws. A bill pending in the state Senate would “give us the hammer we need to go after habitual toll cheats,” Turnpike Commission Chairman Sean Logan said. “This measure would ensure that everyone pays their fair share. There are no free rides.” The bill by Senate Transportation Chairman John Rafferty, R-Montgomery County, and Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Forest Hills, would allow PennDOT to suspend the...

    Pennsylvania city of Harrisburg is STILL plowing snow from January blizzard despite it being 70 degrees A Pennsylvania city is still clearing snow left from a record-breaking blizzard that occurred two months ago despite it being 70 degrees. An estimated 15,000 tons of snow from the city of Harrisburg and surrounding municipalities was piled high on City Island following a 30-inch snowfall in January. And for the last three weeks, city employees have been using gas-powered burners to help melt the remaining piles of snow before its baseball team's opening day in April, according to Pennlive.
  • Group protests Civil War Museum exhibit (because of guns)

    02/14/2016 11:57:23 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 64 replies
    HARRISBURG - Dozens of protesters took a stand against the National Civil War Museum Wednesday, saying that an exhibit currently on display and sponsored by the NRA sends the wrong message to young people. “This public institution is highlighting guns when we in fact are trying to get them off the streets and limit their use,” Homer Floyd, a demonstrator, said. Much of the anger is directed at the display of a pistol used by William Quantrill, a Confederate fighter who captured runaway slaves in Kansas and Missouri. In one such raid during the Civil War, Quantrill and his group...
  • Pennsylvania Mayor Pulls Police From NRA Gun Show (demanded a 60% fee increase)

    The mayor of Harrisburg, Penn., ordered his police department on Friday not to provide security for an upcoming NRA-sponsored gun show after the association refused to meet a demand to pay a 60-percent increase in fees for the service. Harrisburg police have provided security for the annual Great American Outdoors Show, scheduled this year for February 6-14, in the past. Mayor Eric Papenfuse said that the decision not to offer the department’s services this year was motivated in part by the NRA’s opposition to the city’s gun control policies. “We have an epidemic of gun violence,” Papenfuse told WHTM. “It’s...

    HARRISBURG — The midtown home sat quietly Thursday night with two single sheets of white paper posted to the door with a clear message: No Comment No News! No Trespassing. Hours earlier, FBI agents stormed and raided the home in the 1700 block of Fulton Street, where the U.S. District Attorney's Office said 19-year-old Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz lived. Aziz, now held in federal custody, has been charged in supporting the ISIS terrorist organization through various means. Agents said they found a tactical backpack, high-capacity gun magazines, ammunition and a "modified kitchen knife" among his belongings in the home, according...

    HARRISBURG - State Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, who has castigated prosecutors, judges, and others for exchanging offensive emails, failed to disclose that her twin sister - a top prosecutor on her staff - sent and received emails that mocked African Americans and Asians, joked about domestic abuse, and included photos of scantily clad men and women. Kane made public her sister's emails late Wednesday after coming under pressure from a Philadelphia prosecutor, who asserted that Kane's sister had sent or received 58 troubling emails - and Kane herself had received 11.

    Former Harrisburg Mayor Stephen R. Reed was charged Tuesday with a battery of theft, fraud and bribery charges that, if proven, would stamp corruption in indelible ink on the Reed Era. They would also likely put Reed, who has been out of office since January 2010 and has indicated his intent to fight for vindication, in jail. The 65-year-old Reed was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge William Wenner Tuesday on charges that go right to the heart of his longtime role as benevolent dictator of Pennsylvania's Capital City.

    About 10 or 15 minutes after the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its 5-4 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which made gay marriage legal across the country, including the 13 states that up until now had banned it, a colleague of mine walked into the PennLive newsroom. A smile lit up her face and there were tears in her eyes. Up until about 10 a.m. on Friday, my gay colleague sat on pins and needles, waiting to see if nine lawyers were about to throw the life and her and her partner into absolute upheaval. We embraced and I offered...
