    Less than 24 hours after hoisting the Lombardi Trophy into the air in Minneapolis, the total number of Philadelphia Eagles players who said they won’t visit the White House if the team is invited for the ceremonial championship visit rose to three. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins— a prominent voice the past two seasons in NFL player protests of police brutality and social injustice— told CNN Monday that he will not attend the White House if President Donald Trump was to extend the invitation.
  • Devout Muslim SHOT COP 13 times because “police enforce laws that undermine the Quran’s teachings”

    As I have reported here for the past 15 years, this is all according to Islamic texts and teachings. And for me (and a small handful of my colleagues who dare speak candidly about Islam), we have been demonized, marginalized and rendered radioactive. Meanwhile — a cop takes 13 bullets. Downtown New Yorkers get mowed down on Halloween by a devout Muslim ululating “allah akbar.” Coworkers enjoying Christmas festivities in San Bernardino are slaughtered in cold blood. Commuters to work on trains are stabbed by Muslims shouting “allah akbar” in Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland, Marseilles, Paris, Sweden, etc. Shoppers stabbed at...

    It is one of the most shocking and drastic shakeups of the District Attorney's Office that anyone can recall. But it most definitely should not come as any surprise to those who had been following the campaign promises of Larry Krasner. The purge was on full display as the file boxes kept rolling out of the D.A.'s office. Thirty-one staffers, including a number of murder squad prosecutors, high ranking deputies and division chiefs were among those terminated.
  • The Racist Subtext Of Philly's Ban On Convenience Store Protective Glass Barriers

    American Thinker ^ | 12-19-2017 | Thomas Lifson
    Shopkeepers in Philadelphia's neighborhood convenience stores that serve food and beverages, locally referred to as "beer delis," face a legal prohibition on the thick glass barriers around cashiers that protect them from stickup artists wielding guns, knives, and other weapons. Because the shopkeepers predominately are Asian, and the customers (and robbers) are mostly black, this imbroglio looks a lot like a racist quest for vengeance against a commercially successful minority group.(Koreans) Julie Shaw of the Philadelphia Inquirer provides the details: Despite strong opposition from Asian American beer deli owners and their supporters, Philadelphia City Council voted, 14-3, Thursday to approve...
  • Philly’s Italian-American Community Fighting To Keep Columbus Day

    Los Angeles has joined Seattle, Portland, and many other cities in replacing the annual Columbus day celebration with Native American Day. But that won’t happen in Philadelphia if the Italian-American community has anything to say about it. “We need to learn from history, not take down history,” said Marco Circelli, Executive Director of the Filitalia Museum on Passyunk Avenue. He tells visitors the story of Christopher Columbus and other Italian explorers who paved a path to the new world. But in recent years, more than two dozen U.S. cities have decided to turn their backs on Columbus, and instead celebrate...
  • Antifa, black-clad and often violent, is strong in Philly

    In January, on the evening of President Trump’s inauguration, a band of bandanna-wearing vandals raced along South Street, shattering the windows of two banks and a dozen storefronts. “They came by and had masks on,” recalled Tanya Italia, manager of a high-end furniture store. “They just smashed the window with a hammer. It was just a day of vandalism. I don’t think of them as real protesters.” The next month, an evening protest march along Broad Street turned ugly at Temple University. Some anti-Trump demonstrators tossed latex gloves filled with dye at Philadelphia police and campus officers, the university said....
  • George Soros Floods Local DA Races With $1,700,000 in Philadelphia

    Washington Free Beacon via Pamela Geller ^ | Aug 25, 2017 | Joe Schoffstall
    If Soros is spending this much on local DA races in Philadelphia, imagine how much he is pouring into more important and higher-profile contests. Soros is attempting to bring his anti-Americanism, socialism, and globalist internationalism into every sphere of American life, and destroy every vestige of America as a free nation. If you are unfamiliar with Soros’s actual past, remember that, as 60 Minutes reported in 2006, “While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.” I have long...

    In a case that raises questions about online journalism and privacy rights, the U.S. Department of Justice sent a formal request to an independent news site ordering it to provide details of all reader visits on a certain day. The grand jury subpoena also required the Philadelphia-based Web site "not to disclose the existence of this request" unless authorized by the Justice Department, a gag order that presents an unusual quandary for any news organization.

    An armed Antifa group is launching a new cell in Philadelphia, with support from the “alt-left” alternative media. The group currently hosts anti-police workshops called “Our Enemies in Blue.” The group draws inspiration from convicted murderers and calls for violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection. Antifa websites like It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News have been promoting the group, which calls itself the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, calling on their readers to donate to a Fundrazr account for the creation of the new cell. The press release the group published in far-left media is filled with...

    Video shows a 26-year-old woman getting viciously beaten by several others Tuesday afternoon outside a store near 66th and Greenway Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia. The woman is punched and kicked more than a hundred times over the nearly 3 minute long video. Her sister is also seen getting beaten up by the same group. No word on what started the fight. "It gets to the point where multiple people are beating up one to the point where she is on the ground unable to defend herself," Philadelphia Police Lt. John Walker said. "You also don't see in the video she...

    More than 500 teens in a flash mob confronted police outside the Lonnie Young Recreation Center in Germantown Sunday night. Police say it all began a little bit after 6 p.m. When officers arrived, they found the large crowd on the sidewalk and in the street, as most were estimated to be between 12 and 17-years-old. Officers said glass bottles were thrown at them. Publicly available videos on social media show the teens surrounding officers in their vehicles, hopping on top of cars and generally taunting police. Police commanders made the decision not to make any arrests, as to not...

These municipalities were identified in a Justice Department inspector general’s report last year as potentially out of compliance with the requirements. Friday’s letter asks the cities to send documentation that they are in compliance by the end of June.

  • Why some Philly women are clamoring for contraception before Inauguration Day

    Why some Philly women are clamoring for contraception before Inauguration Day by Sarah Horvath, M.D. Twitter icon @phillyhealthsci “As long as it’s before the inauguration.” “Anytime before the new Congress takes over.” “Before Obama leaves office…” Women are frantically calling our Philadelphia contraceptive clinic to get their IUDs, implants and sterilizations before Jan. 20. It used to be that women scheduled contraception around life events – weddings, desired number of children, education and career goals. Now they are scheduling appointments around the congressional calendar. They fear that a new administration will take away their contraceptive coverage. And for good reason....
  • The Philly recount is done, and it didn’t help Hillary much at all

    The great Philadelphia recount has ended, and Hillary Clinton got five more votes than she had in her previous total. Donald Trump’s number stayed the same, as did the totals for Independent candidate Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein after the City Commissioners Office recounted votes in 75 of Philadelphia’s more than 1600 voting divisions. The recount had been launched by 250-plus Philadelphia residents answering the call of Stein, who asked for three petitioners in each of Pennsylvania’s voting district to file recounts to assist in her attempts to get a statewide recount through a Commonwealth Court and...

    Some snapped pictures, others watched intently as an official recount of 75 Philadelphia voting divisions took place Friday afternoon at the city's massive voting machine warehouse in Nicetown. The recount of 4 percent of the city's 1,686 voting divisions was the result of a recount campaign launched by Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein in various counties and states throughout the country. Philadelphia City Commissioners, who make up the Board of Elections, agreed to recount ballots in 75 divisions in which there were at least three affidavits for each division from voters asking for a recount. They rejected the request...

    Bill Donohue comments on Hillary Clinton’s speech at an African American church in Philadelphia yesterday: Hillary Clinton took her campaign to Mount Airy Church of God in Christ yesterday afternoon. According to one report, “she urged parishioners of a black church in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane neighborhood to choose ‘hope over fear’ and vote to send her to the White House.” Another story described how she stood “at a wooden lectern in the center of a purple-carpeted altar,” making her pitch to the faithful. There has been no complaint from the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State,...
  • SEPTA: Deal reached to end transit strike

    The week-long work stoppage that sidelined subways, trolleys, and buses and threatened to complicate a closely contested presidential election ended in the predawn hours Monday as SEPTA and leadership for the Transportation Workers Union Local 234 reached a tentative five-year contract for 4,738 transit personnel. While the agreement needs to be formally approved by SEPTA's board and union members, it means workers will return to their jobs during the day. The city's mass transit system gradually returned to service Monday morning, with full service promised before Tuesday morning's commuters begin their treks to work — just in time for Election...
  • State police raid Philly office as voter registration probe grows

    Days after searching the Delaware County office of a Democratic grassroots organization for evidence of voter-registration fraud, state police on Thursday raided a second office - this one in Philadelphia. Agents executed the warrant at FieldWorks LLC's office in North Philadelphia after 5 p.m., seeking, among other things, forms that could be used to "construct fraudulent voter registration forms" and "completed voter registration forms containing same or similar identifying information of individuals on multiple forms," court documents show. As in the raid in Norwood, the latest warrant said investigators from the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office suspected "tampering with public records...
