President Trump Shot And Remains Defiant

President Trump Shot And Remains Defiant — Donald Trump was shot at tonight’s, July 13, rally in Butler, Pa. The bullet came from the roof of a building behind the stage. Trump was hit in the right ear and fell to floor as Secret Service agents rushed to cover him. He came to his feet and defiantly shaked his fist as he was taken to safety and treatment.

The Donald is a badass and we are proud to be supporters.

Two attendees were also reportedly shot. Their injures have been described as serious, possibly fatal.

The shooter was killed.

Perhaps Joe Biden should tone his rhetoric.

The good thing is that it appears the bad guys have calculated vote fraud isn’t going work this time.

Here’s Gov. Josh Shapiro’s statement. He couldn’t even mention the President’s name.

Going Forth On The 2nd

Going Forth On The 2nd

By Bob Small

John Adams believed, July 2, was the date to be celebrated as “ the great anniversary festival.” This was because July 2 was the date that delegates at the second Continental Congress meeting approved a meeting for independence. It was approved by 12 of the 13 colonies.

The New York delegation had to abstain as they did not have the necessary permission to vote from their state.

From his letter to his wife Abigail written on July 3, “It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations “

July 4 was the date of the adoption, though not signed, by members of the Continental Congress.

However, not until July 8 did Philadelphia hold a parade and the firing of guns in celebration of the moment.

The Declaration of Independence was not signed by any of the delegates until early August, after  “being engrossed on parchment by Timothy Matlack, a Philadelphia beer bottler who had fine penmanship ”

Fifty-six delegates eventually signed it.

For information on viewing the Declaration of Independence and other documents locally, see Museum of the American Revolution.

Historian Pauline Maier, in her 1997 book, American Scripture: Making the Declaration of Independence said that in early July 1777 that there had been almost a year since they declared their independence from the British

Maier also said that “arguments over the how to celebrate the Declaration arose between the Federalists (of John Adams) and the Republicans (of Thomas Jefferson) and that the Declaration and its anniversary day weren’t widely celebrated until the Federalists faded away from the political scene after 1812. “

See also, from across the pond: John Adams was right, July 2nd is really America’s …

History, as they say, is “written by the victors” or, in this case, the last on the field.

Will future historians pontificate on the first Trump term versus the second Trump term.?

Judge Weilheimer is involved with the troubling stories regarding family court matter in Montco, including the torture inflicted on Arthur Herring.

She is the wife of Philadelphia Inquirer Vice President and Chief General Counsel Larry Wellheimer, and closely connected to Gov. Josh Shapiro.

With Democrat control of the US Senate her confirmation is basically assured.

Black Support Growing For Trump In Philly, Keystoners Told

Black Support Growing For Trump In Philly, Keystoners Told — Support for Donald Trump is growing among Philadelphia Blacks, the audience of last night’s, July, 11, Keystone Town Hall was told.

Mina Quarles a captain of Trump Force 47 said her group is holding flag waves and voter registrations in the city.

The flag waves get enthusiastic support and people — including Blacks — are flipping to R.

Ms. Quarles said her mother was a die-hard Democrat and now strongly backs The Donald. She routinely — and shamelessly — wears a MAGA hat.

Mom doesn’t experience hostility, said Ms. Quarles.

But she does get strange looks.

The Black community is ready to flip, she says. She says the only obstacle is that still not enough are saying the can be Republicans.

Ms. Quarles was a speaker at the June 22 Trump Rally at Temple University’s Liacouras Center.

She said she felt a unifying sense of hope.

Ms. Quarles, however, said one surprising group of treacherous snakes in her grassroots group of volunteers has found are in the Philadelphia Republican Party.

She said this revelation hit home during Sam Oropeza’s 2023 unsuccessful City Council bid.

“People don’t know that it’s our own party working against it,” she said.

Ed note: See this article from 2013.

Ms. Quarles said those in the suburbs can help their city brothers and sisters by sharing videos of their flag wavings and other events on social media.

She says the Instagram account Flip Philly Red details their activities.

Also speaking was Ms. Quarles’s daughter Jadyn.

Jadyn said teachers at her school bullied her for supporting Trump.

SEPTA Stupidity In Springfield

SEPTA Stupidity In Springfield — Once upon a time the SEPTA Route 101 trolley made all stops on the north side of Springfield Road at this station in Springfield. A while back, some genius decided it stop on the north side for trolleys bound for 69th Street and on the south side for trolleys bound for Media.

This means a round-trip commuter is always going to have to cross the busy street once whereas before the street would rarely have to be crossed.

Note the “do not cross” sign that directs one a block away to a crosswalk which makes sure the automobile traffic gets sated before one gets a walk signal.

Did any of the brilliant thinkers every consider that one rushing to catch a trolley might not be inclined to do things properly and risk a rather dangerous crossing?

The reason for the change was supposedly to take advantage of some parking. The second picture is the north side parking lot during the morning rush hour, today, July 11.

Not very strong thinkers are running things. Perhaps the idiocracy has arrived.

Oldest Alternative Party Will Again Field Presidential Candidate

Oldest Alternative Party Will Again Field Presidential Candidate

By Bob Small

The country’s oldest on-going alternative party, with a rich history in Pennsylvania, (see below) has evolved since its founding in 1869.

The Prohibition Part has a website, Facebook page, Facebook group account, and a presence on Instagram and X.

In their 1908 Platform, they came out for direct election of Senators, guarantees of bank deposits, outlawing child labor in mines, women’s right to vote, and workers compensation.

And of course prohibiting the sale of alcohol.

Their 2024 Platform contains 24 items, a few of which are congressional term limits, education reform (free community colleges with 4-year degrees) parental choice in education, a strong belief in Federalism, regenerative farming practices and sanctity of life although letting a woman make the final decision.

There is a plethora of information about their presidential candidate, Michael Wood. Now retired, Wood volunteers 500 hours a year in managing a large food bank and his articles have appeared in over a dozen peer-reviewed journals on genealogy and political history.

He has been married for 22 years and they have two sons.

In recent Scott’s Thoughts represents NPR, Wood said “We are not your grandfather’s Prohibition Party”

Wood noted that in 1924, the Prohibition Party ran the first female vice-presidential candidate.

In a wide-ranging interview with Clinton R. Siegle, published in Minds, he references the UK proposing a forever ban on tobacco sales. More interesting is the “Dietary Guidelines for Americans” where the Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services combine to agree on the statement that “consuming two alcoholic drinks per day is part of a healthy diet”! Since I don’t drink, maybe my wife can have four.

John Pietrowski, the vice presidential candidate, worked for the US Post Office for 33 years. He has been married since 1988 has one child. He is a rare 49-star flag baby. He is the Lector Coordinator of St Clement Roman Catholic Church in Lakewood, Ohio.

For information about The Prohibition Party Pennsylvania Chapter see their website.

James Hedges of Pennsylvania was their presidential candidate in 2016.
