    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.

    The manhunt for a Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened to “put a bullet” in President Trump’s head has finally ended, officials said Friday. Shawn Richard Christy, 26, surrendered after being tracked down to a ravine just north of Route 30 in Mansfield, Ohio, about 4:30 p.m., just three hours after the day’s search began, officials said at a press conference. “He was captured with a firearm on him and the FBI is processing that and he going to be facing further charges on that firearm,” U.S. Marshal Brian Fitzgibbon said.

  • Leaked NPR Emails: Call Kermit Gosnell a “Doctor” Not an “Abortion Doctor”

    NPR described Kermit Gosnell as an “abortion doctor” back in 2013 when a Philadelphia court convicted him of murdering babies. But last month, the taxpayer-funded radio group rejected an ad that used the exact same term to describe Gosnell, claiming it is not “value neutral,” according to The Daily Beast. The makers of the movie “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” have been hitting roadblocks since they began their project more than four years ago. Their struggles started when the crowdfunding site Kickstarter refused to allow filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney to fundraiser there. They later broke...

    A Pennsylvania man hunted by federal authorities for allegedly threatening to “put a bullet…in the head of President Donald J. Trump” is suspected to be on the run in Ohio on Monday after authorities there found an abandoned truck he's believed to have stolen. Police investigating a crash late Sunday afternoon near Mansfield determined the truck on the side of Interstate-71 was the same one alleged to have been swiped by Shawn Christy from a construction company in Luzerne County, Pa., about 380 miles east, Fox 56 reported. The 27-year-old from McAdoo has been on the radar of U.S. Marshals,...

    HAZLETON, Pa. — Federal authorities suspect a man accused of having threatened President Donald Trump and other officials may have stolen a truck overnight from the same northeastern Pennsylvania business he is believed to have burglarized earlier this month. U.S. Marshals, the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service have been searching for 27-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo for more than two months, saying he has threatened to use “full lethal force on any law enforcement officer that tries to detain me.” ~snip~ The Maple Shade, New Jersey native’s parents said Thursday that Christy sent a Facebook message to them saying...

    Catholic League ^ | 8/16/18 | Bill Donahue
    Unlike most commentators and reporters, I [Bill Donahue] have read most of the Pennsylvania grand jury report. The purpose of this statement is to debunk many of the myths, and indeed lies, that mar the report and/or interpretations of it. Myth: Over 300 priests were found guilty of preying on youngsters in Pennsylvania. Fact: No one was found guilty of anything. Yet that didn’t stop CBS from saying “300 ‘predator priests’ abused more than 1,000 children over a period of 70 years.” These are all accusations, most of which were never verified by either the grand jury or the dioceses....

    President Donald Trump spoke at the 9/11 memorial service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, recalling the attacks of September 11, 2001. Trump praised the valor of the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 for resisting the terrorists in control of the hijacked plane, which led to the crash in a Pennsylvania field. “At this memorial on this sacred earth in the field beyond this wall and in the skies above our heads, we remember the moment when America fought back,” Trump said, praising the Americans aboard the flight–“changed the course of history” by resisting the terrorists. Trump recognized...

    Over the past few months, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has faced fierce criticism for his role in the Trump administration’s family separation policy. But while the White House continues to deal with the fallout from tearing kids away from their parents at the border, Sessions has been busy orchestrating another, much quieter attack on the country’s immigration system. Tensions have been simmering for months between the attorney general and the hundreds of judges overseeing immigration courts, but they reached a new high in July. The flashpoint was the case of Reynaldo Castro-Tum, a Guatemalan man who was scheduled to appear...

    Amazon has been ramping up hiring in the 20 cities it shortlisted for its HQ2 search and Philadelphia is dead last in those efforts while Virginia, Boston and New York rank in the top three, according to a GeekWire report. One can only wonder whether Amazon's hiring has anything to do its HQ2 search and the city it ultimately selects. ▪“A GeekWire analysis of Amazon job data provided by a third-party firm found that of the HQ2 finalists, offices in the Washington D.C. area — which includes three of the 20 regions on the short list in D.C. proper, Northern...

    ---SNIP--- After the Inquirer and Daily News reported that eight women had accused Leach of unwanted touching and sexually charged conversations, Muth demanded that Leach resign. She also criticized him for lashing out at several women on social media afterward; he called one "a human wrecking ball of hate." So Muth's campaign contacted the organizers of the event — a high school Democratic organization to which Leach's teenage daughter belongs — and told them exactly why she didn't want to appear with the senator. He was dropped. Shortly thereafter, Leach fired off an angry email to Joe Foster, chairman of...

Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett, who stayed in the locker room for the anthem during the preseason, walked in front of the bench during most of Boyz II Men’s rendition. Bennett then took a seat near the end of the song, according to Judy Battista of NFL Media. All the Eagles were on the field, even safety Malcolm Jenkins.

    Los Angeles police are investigating the vandalism of disgraced comedian Bill Cosby’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after it was marked with the words “serial rapist,” authorities said. LAPD officials learned someone had scrawled the words in black marker on the star about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. It is not clear when the message was written, said Officer Mike Lopez. Authorities cleaned the plaque and reported the vandalism, Lopez said. Cosby, 81, once known as “America’s dad” for his role on the sitcom “The Cosby Show,” was convicted in April of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, a former basketball...

    Pennsylvania, a state that helped put President Donald Trump in the White House, isn’t too keen on the president’s tariff push, a new NBC News/Marist poll finds, as a near majority fears that the ongoing trade war will ultimately damage the U.S. economy. Forty-five percent of Pennsylvania adults believe that tariffs and other import barriers will raise costs of consumer goods and hurt the country’s economy. By comparison, 27 percent believe they will protect American jobs and help the economy. The administration’s trade policy is unpopular across virtually all demographic groups in the NBC/Marist poll — the only groups where...
