    A large group of federal law enforcement officers have been conducting a search for a man who threatened the President. McAdoo, PA – There is a large-scale search underway for a man who posted that he was going to shoot his local district attorney right after he shot the President. U.S. Marshals, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the U.S. Secret Service are all looking for 26-year-old Shawn Christy, whose father first contacted authorities about the threats his son had been posting to social media, FOX News reported. On June 12, Christy posted a threatening message on Facebook that...

    An openly gay Pennsylvania lawmaker has drawn backlash after he “welcomed” Vice President Mike Pence to Philadelphia with a picture of himself flipping the bird. “Get bent, then get out!” state Rep. Brian Sims, of Philadelphia, wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday ahead of Mr. Pence’s visit to a fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner. “Vice President Mike Pence, let me be the first person to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love, and to my District in the State House!” Mr. Sims wrote. “To be clear, we’re a City of soaring diversity. We believe in the...

    TOBYHANNA — More than 100 new jobs are coming to the Tobyhanna Army Depot thanks to a $150 million increase in spending during federal fiscal year 2019 on WIN-T work — the development and maintenance of the Army’s most modern communications systems. U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright said Wednesday the move represents a long-term shift from reliance on private defense firms to Tobyhanna. Tobyhanna Army Depot will conduct a job fair Saturday, June 30, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Landing, Building 333, General Lemnitzer Street. “As a result of the increase in workload, we are hiring and are...

WNEP reports that Marshals are looking for 26-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania. Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Christy also posted about Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli. WNEP also reports that this isn’t the first time Christy has been in trouble for making threats. He and his father were sentenced to...

    Police shot and killed an unarmed teen who ran away from a traffic stop Tuesday night in East Pittsburgh, authorities said. Authorities identified the dead teen as 17-year-old Antwon Rose, a Woodland Hills High School student who district officials said was one English class shy of graduating. He had been riding in a car linked to a non-fatal shooting 13 minutes earlier on North Braddock's Kirkpatrick Avenue, according to Allegheny County police. A 22-year-old man wounded in the North Braddock shooting was treated and released from a hospital. The deadly shooting in East Pittsburgh happened at 8:40 after borough police...

    A professor who has called Dr. Jordan B. Peterson an “incel” wrote a post Sunday saying that she “will not be silenced.” Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania philosophy professor Wendy Lynne Lee seemed not to be aware of the existence of Peterson’s wife and kids when she called him a “misogynist incel” on Twitter. An incel, or involuntary celibate, is shorthand for a man who has trouble attracting sexual partners and often checks out of the dating scene. Lee, who authored “Contemporary Feminist Theory and Activism: Six Global Issues,” reportedly has not stood for the Pledge of Allegiance, which she terms...

    City Controller Rebecca Rhynhart released a report Tuesday night stating $33.3 million is missing from the City of Philadelphia's main cash account. Besides financial discrepancies, the report also found issues ranging from outdated technology to inadequate staffing. "My office has opened a fraud investigation," Rhynhart said. According to the report, the discrepancy dates back several years. The report states other city accounts have not been reconciled by the Treasurer's Office, some since 2010.

    The Atlantic ^ | 5/8/2018
    In 2018, black voters are finding out just what the hell they had to lose. Nazis and Klansmen march openly and proudly, and hate crimes appear to be on the rise. Police killings of people—especially black people—remain largely the same year to year, and this iteration of the Justice Department has largely abdicated any federal responsibility in reducing brutality. An infant-mortality crisis is tightening its grip on the most marginalized communities, and across many economic metrics—from evictions, to generational wealth, to segregation—disparities are either stagnating or trending in the wrong direction. Fifty years after the Kerner Commission’s report said the...
  • Did Liberals Got Conned? How Is Jill Stein Spending The Money She Raised For Bogus 2016 Recounts?

    Remember Jill Stein’s shoddy 2016 recounts? Remember how she raised more for this nonsense effort than for her entire 2016 campaign? She raised over $7 million for this effort, and she seems to be spending it on her staff. Not in a lavish sense, but they told Daily Beast it’s because they’re continuing the recount initiative. A bit odd since Stein promised that there would be a vote on how the rest of the fund raised would be distributed. So far, that has not happened.As liberals licked their wounds, with some still recovering from the shock of Trump’s win, Stein...

    Instead of shouting out questions about Monica Lewinsky, Caplan – as he is wont to do – bellowed out queries about Jeffrey Epstein and “the Lolita Express” in light of theories regarding an underage sex-trafficking ring. As you can see in the video below, Caplan's actions were not well-received. Among the responses was “Sit down and shut up.” Caplan didn’t abide by that request, and was escorted from the auditorium for disrupting the event. In the lobby outside the room, he was told he was “acting like an insane human” in front of an audience that included children. “If I...

    One Trump Administration achievement has been liberating U.S. energy producers of all kinds from federal shackles. Companies have responded with jobs and investment, but all of a sudden the Administration wants to do a Barack Obama imitation and play energy favorites. The National Security Council on Friday reviewed a 41-page internal memo, leaked to Bloomberg News, suggesting that President Trump invoke emergency authority to require grid operators to buy nuclear and coal power. But there’s no emergency, and the political intervention will do more harm than good. *** The supposed problem is that the U.S. is producing an abundance of...

    When people think of the liberal venom coming from MSNBC, many would single out Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell. But the 9am hour has quietly become another home on the network for angry rants. On Wednesday, guests compared Donald Trump to a dictator and somehow linked Trump’s White House speech on Tuesday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Talking about Trump’s patriotism event in the wake of cancelling the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles' appearance at the White House, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens linked: “This reminds me of certain regimes around the world. The Maduro regime...

    There are Trillions At Stake.   There is no upper limit to what congress is willing to do to stop President Trump from turning off the lobbyist funding.  Without influence in DC there can be no affluence in DC.  That’s why McConnell cancelled the recess. If the president continues to remain focused exclusively on what is in the U.S. best interests, he must be stopped.  Politicians in DC cannot just sit-by and allow the U.S. economy to be based on the interests of Americans; it would mean the destruction of years of central planning by DC Lobbyists, multinational banks, Wall Street and...

    Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey Jr. once again put his own political interests before that of his constituents. This time, Casey is vehemently opposing a qualified candidate for the Court of Appeals on ideological grounds. David Porter, an attorney from Pittsburgh, was nominated by President Trump to sit on the bench for the 3rd circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. Porter has 23 years of experience in law, and currently practices at the Pittsburgh law firm Buchanan, Ingersoll and Rooney.Historically, Pennsylvania Senators Casey and Toomey have typically stuck together for judicial nominations and have been able to compromise for the...
