Philly Tough Love Video On Corruption Cost

Philly Tough Love Video On Corruption Cost — The below video attributed to Conservative Resurgence titled Philadelphia the Unbelievable Corruption Taking Place in the City of Brotherly Love was published March 8 on YouTube. It has 96,993 views as of today, March 18.

It was sent to us as a link from The Burning Platform.

It’s harsh and maybe a tad unfair for those who remember the city in the 1970s and 1980s and 1990s. Really, there were 432 homicides in Philly in 1995 which is 81 more than last year.

Just the same it courageously says things that are not being said by our media “watchdogs”.

Some might call it racist. It’s not. It’s tough love.

If the corrupt feudalists who rule the city were making the rules in the suburbs and farmlands, the lives of those who live in those places would be akin to those who live in North and West Philly.

Think Hunger Games. Actually, you don’t even need fiction for an illustration of this truth. Think Medieval Europe.

We have come to believe that “Black” people don’t exist. Neither do “White” people. The only people who exist are people people.

Some are good and some are not.

The oppressed people people who live in North and West Philly need to be liberated from the corrupt people people who rule them and want to rule us.

Where we go one, we go all.

Here is the video. Watch it while you can.

Daphne Goggins Keeps Endorsement

Daphne Goggins Keeps Endorsement — The strange vote tonight (Feb. 18) on whether to rescind the Philadelphia Republican Party’s endorsement of Daphne Goggins for mayor granted five days ago overwhelmingly went in favor of the North Philadelphia ward leader.

We were told the tally was 29 -17 to retain the endorsement.

We were also told that the party leadership is still plotting to replace her.

Please don’t be that stupid.

Daphne Goggins To Be Rejected By Philly GOP?

The Philadelphia Republican Party, Feb. 13, endorsed North Philadelphia ward leader Daphne Goggins for mayor.

Philly GOP Re-Considering Black Female Candidate
Daphne Goggins

Not that it should matter, but Daphne is a black woman. She would be the first black woman to run for the city’s mayor with a major party endorsement.

Actually, she would be the first black woman endorsed by the city GOP for the office. Actually, she would be the first black endorsed by the city GOP for mayor, at least to our recollection.

Anyway, in a bizarre ham-handed move the Philly Republican boss Michael Meehan summoned ward leaders to reconsider. The vote to reconsider is scheduled for tonight, Feb. 18.

It would be the first time that the party reconsidered an endorsement vote.

The excuse is that Daphne is collecting federal disability payments. Not illegally or unfairly getting the money — there doesn’t seem any debate that she has fibromyalgia — but that she’s getting it.

Slick move Meehan. We think you want to lose. Really.

Why else would you discourage the blacks — many of whom think just like conservative whites — from participation?

It’s exactly like how suburban and rural Republican leaders try to drive out conservatives.

Just sayin’ but the city GOP leaders seem to do pretty good for themselves by finishing second.

Black Friday Name Origin Joseph P. Barrett

Black Friday Name Origin Joseph P. Barrett originally was published Nov. 25, 2015. The men responsible for naming the day, Joe Barrett and Nate Kleger were co-workers and friends of William Lawrence Sr. who provides us with our Omnibits and Cryptowits.

Black Friday Name Origin Joseph P. Barrett
Joseph P. Barrett, the man who gave us “Black Friday”.

Black Friday, in reference to the day after Thanksgiving, was first used in a 1951 article  in the trade publication Factory Management and Maintenance” and concerned the habit of employees calling in sick the day after the holiday to get a four-day weekend.

The article by M. J. Murphy  recommended just making the day a paid holiday.

However, the term’s use as a day of shopping chaos has a Philadelphia root, the popularization of which can be squarely placed on the shoulders of Joseph P. Barrett and Nathan Kleger, who were police reporters with the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.

Philadelphia traffic squad cops had been using the phrase to describe the massive Center City traffic jams that occurred the day after Thanksgiving. Kleger and Barrett wrote a front-page piece circa 1960 in which they appropriated the phrase. The paper in ensuing years continued with the phrase and local TV soon joined.

And then the nation.

Dave Magrogan Flees Philly Over Regs, Taxes

Dave Magrogan Flees Philly Over Regs, Taxes
Not the best place for business.

Dave Magrogan Flees Philly Over Regs, Taxes — Noted restaurateur Dave Magrogan is saying farewell Philly with the closing of his last restaurant in the city, Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar at 40th and Walnut Streets.

He cites paid sick leave, city wage tax, the soda tax, and other city regulations.

He says he is going to stick to the suburbs.

And Florida, where he open an establishment in Delray Beach around New Year’s.

Only two types let Democrats take control of government — masochists and fools.

OK, three types. There are also soulless liars out to get rich and who know how to take advantage of masochists and fools.

Delco Sanctuary City Trump Says

Delco Sanctuary City Trump Says Sorry John McBlain, but it looks like the Center for Immigration Studies is right after all.

President Trump included Delaware County, Pa. on its list of sanctuary cities released yesterday, March 20.

The list comes from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Section II covers jurisdictions with recorded declined detainers between Jan. 28 and Feb. 3. Section III is a table of jurisdictions that have enacted policies that limit cooperation with ICE.

Delco is in Section III as being a jurisdiction that “will not hold individuals solely based on an ICE detainer.” However,”arrangements may be made for ‘in person’ review of the policy”. This has been the policy since August 2014 says ICE.

Chesco, Montco, Bucks and, of course, Philadelphia are also listed

Chesco is in Section III as “will not hold individuals solely based on an ICE detainer” but “will allow ICE agents access to the daily populations reports and other records for investigative purposes”. This has been policy since May 2014.

Bucks is in Section III as “will not hold individuals solely based on an ICE detainer but will notify ICE via email of a pending release from custody.” This has been policy since April 2014.

Montco is in Section III as “will not honor ICE detainer”; “will not accept anyone brought to it solely on an ICE detainer: and “has daily contact with ICE”. This has been policy since April 2014

Philly “will honor ICE detainer where the alien has a prior conviction for a first or second degree felony offense involving violence and the detainer is accompanied by a judicial arrest warrant.” Even more damningly, Philly “prohibits notice to ICE of the pending release of subjects of interest to ICE unless the above criteria is met.”

Section II lists Chester County as declining a detainer on Feb. 3 for an El Salvadorian sought for a probation violation; and Philadelphia as declining detainers on Feb. 1 for a Jamaican wanted for homicide and on Feb. 3 for a Dominican wanted for selling heroin.

Seth Williams Third Term Dream Ends

Seth Williams Third Term Dream Ends — Philly D.A. Seth Williams announced this morning (Feb. 10)  that he won’t seek a third term.

Seth Williams Third Term Dream Ends
Seth Williams

The Philadelphia Board of Ethics, last month, fined him $62,000 — its largest fine ever — for violations, including failing to disclose gifts and income, and accepting gifts from prohibited sources.

Williams cited the action as the reason for making this his last term.

“I have made regrettable mistakes in my personal life and personal financial life that cast an unnecessary shadow,” he said.

Williams, who is the city’s first black District Attorney, was known for his willingness to ignore Democrat taboos. He brought down long-protected serial killer abortionist Kermit Gosnell and he refused to let Pennsylvania’s dirty Attorney General Kathleen Kane cry racism to escape her wrongdoing.

We suspect that if Williams played ball with Democrat limousine liberals he’d still have his career. Ed Rendell was never stopped, after all.

You might think the Republicans would snag Williams off the waiver wire and give him a shot at a comeback but don’t expect that. The Republican leadership shares the same clubhouse with the Democrat limo libs.

Chaka Fattah Gets 10 Year Sentence

Chaka Fattah Gets 10 Year Sentence — Former Congressman Chaka Fattah was bestowed with a 10-year sentence for corrupt hackdom a.k.a traditional Pennsylvania politics.

Fattah, a Democrat, represented from 1995 until June 23 Pennsylvania’s 2nd District. This consists of large swaths of Philly along with Lower Merion in Montco.

U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III called Fattah actions “astonishing” which frankly deserves an LOL. Still, the sentence he passed  might be the longest ever imposed on a member of Congress for federal corruption crimes so kudos for being astonished.

Fattah got a $174,000 congressional salary and associated perks, along with his bribes.

Sentenced with Fattah was Herbert Vederman, who got two-years for offering bribes. Vederman  was a senior consultant at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, a Philadelphia law firm.

Josh Shapiro (Democrat), the political boss of Montgomery County and Pennsylvania’s next attorney general, is counsel at Stradley Ronon. Chaka Fattah Gets 10 Year Sentence -- Former Congressman Chaka Fattah was bestowed with a 10-year sentence bestowed up for various bits

Val DiGiorgio (Republican), the political boss of Chester County and among the leading candidates for chairman of the state Republican Party, runs Stradley Ronon’s banking and public finance sections. He includes Government and Public Affairs as part of his “focus”.

No matter how many 10-year sentences our hacks get, Pennsylvania will never be clean until places like Stradley Ronon are sent to the dustbin.

Uber Banned Again Now That Dems Are Gone

Uber Banned Again Now That Dems Are Gone — An agreement reached, July 7, between the Philadelphia Parking Authority, which oversees limos and taxis in the city, and transportation network companies such as Uber and Lyft, ends tomorrow, Sept. 30, once again making the popular services illegal in the city.

Note that they will only be illegal in Philly. Everywhere else in the state they are fine.

The agreement was made to facilitate transportation matters during the Democratic National Convention, July 25-28.

And this leads one to the obvious question: If it made things better then why won’t it make things better after tomorrow?

Uber Banned Again Now That Dems Are GoneThe answer one fears is that it doesn’t make things better for the small-time cronies who rule Philadelphia but these small-time cronies had to defer to the big-time cronies back in July.

The Democratic Party is a criminal organization. The world would be better if it died.
