Another Islamic Attack, Another Round of Denials

Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett was sitting in his patrol car late Thursday night when a man approached, looking like he was going to ask for directions. Instead, the man, identified as Edward Archer, pulled out a gun that had been stolen from police more than two years ago and opened fire, pumping about a dozen rounds into the driver side window. By some miracle, Hartnett survived despite taking multiple hits and was able to get out of his car and chase after the fleeing suspect, Read more […]

Why We Need More Guns: ISIS Attacks

If you watch the video above you will see the mayor denying the attack was terrorism or had anything to do with Islam. It reminds me of the way German politicians responded to coordinated sexual assaults by immigrants. [See also: “Another Islamic Attack, Another Round of Denials.”] But it also points to the need for the populace to be armed. We obviously can’t count on the terrorist-inspired shooters to only target cops. From the Washington Times: The man who opened fire on a Philadelphia Read more […]

Censorship is OK When Liberals Call For It

Remember times when Christians called for the banning of books that promote homosexuality or immoral sexual lifestyles?  How about when Christians tried to stop the placement of the Harry Potter books in local libraries?  Whether you agree with banning such books or not, the fact is, all Christians were lumped into the “ignorant hick” class by the liberal intelligentsia of the day. Fast forward to today in Philadelphia.  Last week, Friends’ Country School in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, Read more […]

2 Cops Charged because Suspect’s Girlfriend Investigated

Two cops charged with assault were believed until the accused man’s girlfriend dug up video on her own. This story does not show that all cops are this bad. That is certainly not the case. Nor does this story demonstrate that the victim, Najee Rivera, was some kind of upstanding citizen. From what is reported in the Action News 6 story we really can’t tell. The fact that he tried to run away from police may indicate that he was worried about a crime he committed. On the other hand, he Read more […]

Civil Forfeiture Gone Wild: City of Brotherly Love Rapes Residents

You would think after all the posts I have written and read for this blog this column on civil forfeiture from Forbes.com wouldn’t be that surprising to me. But it is enraging. We are governed by locusts, leeches, parasites that don’t know how to stop before they kill the host. We are dominated by vampires, enemies of humanity, wolves posing as watchdogs (or watchdogs gone feral. What is the difference?). These people seem to think they have “ascended” to a higher level—higher on the food Read more […]

Philadelphia Public School System: “Thank You for Smoking!”

You would think that our current health regimen would make our public school system a place where smoking is discouraged. But you would be wrong. Smoking is now being extolled as the only way to save the education of children in Philadelphia. From the CBS Philly news site: “City Officials Say Without Passage of Cigarette Tax, Philadelphia Schools May Not Open On Time.” A timely start to the Philadelphia school year is even more uncertain at word the state house won’t consider the cigarette Read more […]

Pennsylvania AG Uses “Racism” Smear to Cover Up Corruption

Kathleen Kane is the Attorney General of Pennsylvania and she is a Democrat. She succeed a Republican AG, Tom Corbett. While in office, Tom Corbett discovered Democrat Philadelphia-area legislators were taking bribes. (Yes, I know. How shocking to find corruption in such an upright city.) The bribes were in exchange for voting against voter-ID laws. The problem is that while Corbett found the evidence and made the charges, he didn’t get to actually bring the case to court before his time in Read more […]

Government Outsources Gangsterism In Philadelphia

Government doesn’t always tyrannize us by its own soldiers. Sometimes it simply refuses to see when one group in society dominates and exploits another group. From Philly.com: “10 leaders of Ironworkers Local 401 charged in racketeering indictment.” They called themselves “the Helpful Union Guys” – “THUGS” for short – and woe awaited any contractor who dared cross them by hiring non-organized workers. For, federal authorities alleged Tuesday, this “goon squad” of members of Ironworkers Read more […]

Homeland Security Corruptocracy

Jeh Johnson, the new Secretary of Homeland Security, has appointed Christian Marfone to be his chief of staff. Marfone has an interesting history. From the Washington Times, Mr. Marrone acknowledged in court that as a Pennsylvania legislative aide he oversaw the private renovation of his politician boss’s mansion — all while drawing paychecks from taxpayers, according to court records reviewed by The Washington Times. Mr. Marrone was never charged, but prosecutors estimated that he spent Read more […]

Is America’s Political Slaughter Inevitable?

The stranglehold liberals have on American politics looks irrevocable. The regime relentlessly lies to us, destroys our financial stability, sovereignty at home and abroad and strips our liberties. GOP elected officials, previously tagging themselves “Conservative,” unfathomably spout Democrat-Lite mantras guaranteed to hasten the nation’s downfall, despite their constituency’s outrage. The President and his cadre of leftists, encouraged by the media, force one-world government down our Read more […]

City of Brotherly Love Goes Too Far with National Masturbation Month Celebration

The name Philadelphia literally means ‘loving – philos and brother- adelphos, or brotherly love.  It seems these days that definition is being taken too far.  Perhaps the name of the city should be Sodom or Gomorrah. As if our nation could not fall any further into sexual debauchery, it seems we have sunk to a new low and ground zero is focusing its attention on the City of Brotherly Love – Philadelphia.  Believe it or not, someone somewhere has managed to declare May to be the National Read more […]

Evidence that America is Committing National Suicide

“If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” — Abraham Lincoln1 This is the first time I’ve seen Lincoln’s reference to national suicide. I’m more familiar with James Burnham’s book Suicide of Read more […]Abraham Lincoln’s Lyceum Address was delivered to the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois on January 27, 1838, and was titled “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions.” [↩]
