    A Muslim activist group has pressured the U.S. Army War College into postponing a speech by Ray Ibrahim, an expert on the historical roots of Islamic terrorism, after the group falsely labeled him as a racist and “Islamophobe,” he said. The Philadelphia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group critics say is linked to the Islamist international group Muslim Brotherhood, protested the speech in a letter to the college superintendent, Army Maj. Gen. John S. Kem, and provost James G. Breckenridge. Purporting to represent the “Muslim community” in Pennsylvania, CAIR stated that it opposed Mr. Ibrahim’s planned...

    The “unindicted co-conspirator” Council on American-Muslim Relations (“CAIR”) and its Islamist allies are “outraged” because the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, has invited me to give a lecture on my recent book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West. On May 28, CAIR’s Pennsylvania leadership—namely Jacob Bender, Timothy Welbeck, and Ahmet Selim Tekelioglu —sent a letter to USAWC Commandant Gen. John Kem and Provost Dr. James Breckenridge urging them to revoke “the decision of the US Army War College to invite Mr. Raymond Ibrahim to deliver the prestigious 50th Annual Lecture Series of...

    The Pennsylvania supreme court rules that legal gun owners aren’t second-class constitutional citizens. SCOTUS, take note. Earlier this week, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court delivered a message that the United States Supreme Court desperately needs to hear: The lawful exercise of your Second Amendment rights does not make you a second-class citizen. Here’s the context. For the last two years, federal courts — including, sadly, the Supreme Court — have endorsed a legal regime where police can use even the lawful exercise of gun rights as a pretext for the violation of other constitutional rights, principally our Fourth Amendment right against...

    Fireams Policy Coallition ^ | 31 May, 2019 | Dean Weingarten
    HARRISBURG, PA (May 31, 2019) -- Today, the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court issued a significant 53-page majority opinion in the criminal appeal of Commonwealth v. Hicks. Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and Firearms Policy Foundation (FPF) filed an important coalition amicus brief cited by the Court supporting Hicks in December of 2017, alongside Firearms Owners Against Crime (FOAC) and seven Members of Pennsylvania’s General Assembly. The Court’s decision, concurring opinions, and the FPC/FPF amicus brief can be viewed at www.firearmspolicy.org/legal. At issue was whether someone’s carrying of a firearm could be used as reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct, and thus justification...

    A Harrisburg resident has been charged as the man who wielded a machete on Interstate 83 before a state police trooper shot him Friday morning. Devi C. Adhikari, 44, was charged with attempted criminal homicide, attempted aggravated assault, terroristic threats, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and a traffic citation of following too closely, according to court dockets. Earlier on Friday, police said a man, now identified as Adhikari, was “aggressively following” a trooper on Friday morning, then drove around the trooper’s cruiser on Interstate 83 in Lower Paxton Township, Dauphin County. The trooper initiated a traffic stop, but the...

    Ruth Moore, 60, was holding her 13-month-old granddaughter Addy to board the shuttle bus to attend the Trump rally. Moore said she happily voted for Trump in 2016; her sister Robin Beilman, 58, not so much. “I didn’t vote for Hillary either; I just didn’t vote,” said Beilman, who works in a nearby factory making Pop-Tarts. “At first I didn’t like how he conducted himself; I still always don’t, but what I have come to realize is that if you want to get tough things done, you don’t get them done by being nice,” she said. Now Trump has earned...

    Pennsylvania's unemployment level has plummeted to its lowest point in 43 years. Here's what that could mean for 2020. Pennsylvania's unemployment rate is at a near record low, dropping to just 3.8 percent, the lowest its been since 1976, according to statistics published by the state on Friday. That hovers just over the national rate of 3.6 percent. That number is down a half a percentage point from April 2018, when the unemployment rate sat at 4.3 percent. The total number of Pennsylvanians who are employed — 6,222,000 — is an all-time record, the state says. With Pennsylvania once again...

    In what can only be described as a gross violation of the code of conduct befitting a member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, new member Brian Sims (D-Philadelphia) openly harassed an elderly pro-life woman praying outside a Planned Parenthood in his district. Not only did Sims, the first openly (and rabidly) gay representative behave like a threatening bully, but he may have committed a crime. According to the Pennsylvania code, criminal harassment is defined thus: A person commits the crime of harassment when, with intent to harass, annoy or alarm another, the person: (1) strikes, shoves, kicks or otherwise subjects...

    On April 22, 2019, the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia (MAS Philly) uploaded a video of an "Ummah Day" celebration to its Facebook page in which young children wearing Palestinian scarves sang: "Glorious steeds call us and lead us [to] the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The blood of martyrs protects us... Take us, oh ships... until we reach our shores and crush the treacherous ones... Flow, oh rivers of martyrs!" A young girl read a poem praising martyrs who sacrificed their lives for Palestine, and she asked: "Will [Jerusalem] be a hotbed for cowards?" Another young girl read: "We will...

    American Spectator ^ | May 1, 2019 | Jeffrey Lord
    The Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania (CAP), the leader in a capitalist revolt in Pennsylvania, is now spreading its message beyond the state’s borders. And it has gained a receptive audience. That audience gathered a few days ago for a conference held in a place that could not be more symbolic of CAP’s efforts — Carpenters’ Hall in Philadelphia. Recall the historic significance of Carpenters’ Hall. The year: 1774. The event: What would become known to history as the First Continental Congress. The delegates: Representatives from 12 of the 13 British colonies — all except Georgia. Among them were names that...

    Senior Trump 2020 advisers are headed to Harrisburg on Wednesday to meet with Pennsylvania GOP officials amid mounting concerns about the president’s prospects in the critical battleground state. Trump's campaign is moving to shore up the state after 2018 midterm elections that saw Republicans get blown out in races up and down the ballot. Compounding the situation is a state party organization riven by turmoil and infighting. The private meeting, confirmed by a half-dozen party officials, underscores the high stakes for the president in the state. Trump won Pennsylvania by less than 1 percentage point in 2016, and reelection aides...

    Arson investigators in Pennsylvania are searching for clues after two fires broke out at one church. The first fire at the Pentecostal Church of Bethlehem was reported shortly after midnight on Tuesday, while the second fire was called in just before 2 a.m. on Thursday, said the Bethlehem Police Department. No injuries were reported. The Thursday morning fire, which was contained to the roof, was quickly extinguished, police said. In the first fire, thick black smoke was seen billowing from the building, but the fire had already burned itself out when first responders arrived, according to police. The blaze left...
