    Full title is:Hickenlooper offers something different in crowded Democratic field: A detailed history of his sexual conquests If Democratic voters are struggling to see what sets John Hickenlooper apart from the 2020 pack they need to look no further than his autobiography, which outlines in excruciating detail his quest to lose his virginity and, seemingly, every sexual exploit since. The candidate's book, The Opposite of Woe: My Life in Beer and Politics, outlines the journey from a child in the Philadelphia suburbs to the president of a brewing company, mayor of Denver, and then governor of Colorado.

    Recently, non-government organization Truth in Accounting published a reportabout the financial condition of the 75 largest cities of America. As it turns out, 63 out of 75 cities in America were not able to pay bills at the end of the fiscal year of 2017. The final result of this study was the calculation of the burden borne by taxpayers in these American cities. The formula is simple: the financial balance of the city (positive or negative) is divided by the number of inhabitants. The result is a good assessment of how effectively the city authorities work, depending on the...

    There’s a reason why President Trump is becoming more popular in important Midwestern battleground states like Pennsylvania: Voters don’t want to lose the ongoing economic renaissance that is transforming their lives. According to a recent opinion survey from The Wall Street Journal, the president “cumulatively leads a generic Democratic opponent, 46 percent to 40 percent,” in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. The survey’s findings are not surprising, and it’s no small coincidence that those states are all thriving under the president’s pro-growth economic policies.

    Pennsylvania lawmakers are considering a bill that would create a gun registry across the state. The bill would require gun owners across the state to register their firearms through state police every year. Under the proposal, gun owners would need to undergo an annual background check, including fingerprinting. Gun rights advocates are against the idea, saying it’s a violation of the federal and state constitutions.

    PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Police are now investigating whether child weddings are being conducted at a Philadelphia mosque after a sexual assault victim comes forward to Action News. In a Facebook video posted two weeks ago, one of the alleged victims describes her ordeal. She's 17 now but says she first became a child bride at 14. "At the time I was a virgin. It was going to be my first marriage of course," said the teen. She says it didn't last. And in 2016, she says she was married off to Rajmann Sanders, a man more than twice her age...

    President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is preparing an early focus on Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, states that were instrumental to his improbable 2016 victory but where his support has softened, two campaign advisers said. The decision to accelerate campaign organising and eventually get the Republican president to make trips to the three states is a recognition that Trump’s path to re-election in 2020 will need to repeat some of the successes he had in 2016. Advisers also see a need to bolster Trump’s support in Florida, a battleground state he considers his second home but where opinion polls show him...

    Rahm is right. The Democrats are in a leftward lurch that could ruin their chances of retaking the White House. Rahm Emanuel, now stepping down after two terms as mayor of Chicago, knows something about winning elections. He was a key White House operative for Bill Clinton and chief of staff for Barack Obama. It was Rahm, as chairman of the Democratic campaign committee, who engineered the party's takeover of the House in 2006 — and is known for his hardball brand of politics, with all the subtlety of his frequent F-bombs. If Mayor Emanuel believes the Democrats are in...

    --SNIP--- Abouhatab delivered at least three sermons at the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society over the course of several months starting in November, when he was recorded calling Jews “the vilest” people and, in a discussion of the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre in Lebanon, referred to former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin as a “Polish crook” who would slit open a woman’s belly. The statements contained in a five-minute compilation video were released last week by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which monitors and translates Arabic and Muslim media. The Inquirer has confirmed the accuracy of the translation with...

    Are rich people fleeing California to escape astronomical state income taxes? That’s the word. But it’s fake news. In fact, more wealthy people are moving to California than leaving, research indicates. It’s the poor and middle class who are departing. It makes sense. If you’re getting rich in California and can afford to live comfortably here in this balmy climate, there’s little incentive to leave — except to stick it to the tax collector in Sacramento. “If you’ve got your business here and you’re making money, it’s hard to leave,” says Allan Zaremberg, president of the California Chamber of Commerce....
  • State police crack down on construction zone speeders with Operation Yellow Jacket

    With a flashy name and speed-tracking equipment, state police cracked down on leadfoots in PennDOT construction zones last week in western Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that state police with Troop A issued 171 citations and 70 written warnings to alleged speedsters in Indiana County as part of Operation Yellow Jacket. Under the crackdown, a trooper gauged vehicle’s speeds in a construction zone. The officer then radioed ahead to other officers, who pulled over the offending drivers. Generally speaking, speed limits are 10 mph lower in a construction zone as a safety precaution for road crews. The officers were enforcing...

    A top Democratic super PAC that spent $133 million in support of Hillary Clinton in 2016 said it no longer considers Ohio a target state for the 2020 presidential election, as it looks to align with an increasingly socialist Democratic Party. In a memo, Priorities USA, a moneyed super PAC that supported both President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and Clinton’s 2016 run for the White House, downgraded Ohio’s importance and labeled the state a “GOP Watch,” along with states such as Texas and Iowa. The PAC now sees Ohio as less likely to flip than other swing states, such...
  • ‘Terrible Idea’: Michigan’s Democratic Governor Pushes an Enormous Gas Tax Increase

    The Daily Signal ^ | March 5, 2019 | Chris White, Daily Caller News Foundation
    Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is proposing what some opponents are calling a draconian gas tax increase to fix the state’s crumbling road infrastructure. Whitmer’s budget proposal will include a 45-cent gas tax increase, which would be phased in over three separate intervals, the governor’s spokeswoman Tiffany Brown told reporters Monday. The rate would begin increasing in October, hit its second phase in April 2020, and ease into its final phase by the end of that year. The increase is expected to generate roughly $2 billion a year in additional revenue for roads, according to media reports. Whitmer, a Democrat...

    WORTHINGTON, Pa. - A message on a billboard in our area is upsetting some people. “First time I saw it was just complete and utter shock," said Michael Allshouse. He told Channel 11 he almost stopped dead in his tracks when he came across the billboard on Route 422 next to Worthington. “I don’t see it as thought-provoking. I don’t see it as instigating thoughtful discussion as much as it is provoking and agitating," he said. The messages dissolve from “whites have rights” to one about Jussie Smollett -- the actor involved in the hoax attack in Chicago. “I do...
