20% Of Philly Students Can Read??? — The ABC sitcomAbbott Elementaryhas a plot line in which a big, bad charter school company is trying to take over the show’s eponymous Philadelphia public school.
This caused Jeanne Allen, founder and CEO of the Center for Education Reform, to tweet:
It’s pathetic when fewer than 20% of Philadelphia students can even read, write or spell at grade level that there’s a show on television that has the nerve to criticize the schools that succeed, and the people that help them. This has TEACHERS UNION written all over it.
Is it true that fewer than 20 precent of Philadelphia students read, write or spell at grade level??
According to the Philadelphia School District’s website 46 percent of children K-2 and 33 percent of children in third grade read at grade level as of 2019, which is before the Covid shutdown.
The stats in 2013, by the way, were 52 percent of K-2 and 45 percent in grade 3.
It appears the more caring parents are getting their kids out of public school and into the big, bad charters which is the only sane and caring thing to do.
Update On Krasner Impeachment From Carmela Ciliberti — Chesco attorney Carmela Ciliberti’s latest podcast gives an update on looming impeachment of Philadelphia’s out-of-control district attorney, Larry Krasner. Murders in the city are up 59 percent since won election. He blames everybody else.
Carmela does expect the state legislature to successfully impeach Krasner this session but does feel the effort is waking up many.
Krasner Impeachment Update By Carmela Ciliberti — The Carmela Ciliberti Show’s most recent subject concerned the pending impeachment of Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner and the misery he is inflicting on the birthplace of America.
Philly and Pennsylvania often mirrors national forces and, thus, this “homer” has aggregated on-point cites, many of which are from the Inqy [when it suppresses bias]. For example, Brittany Salerno and Barbara Capozzi provided a pro/con debate on whether safe injection sites are desirable; I went to Penn State with Barbara, who is a South Philly real estate agent whose Dem-$-raiser I once attended (She’s color-blind, literally and figuratively). Fortunately, she took the “correct” side, opposing government-given drugs.
Other Philly-evolutions have been captured, reflecting lotsa stuff impacting urban USA:
Inga Saffron: By turning Fairmount Water Works into a party space, Philly exemplifies the worst of park privatization
The PA Department of State filed suit against three Commonwealth county boards of elections (Berks, Fayette and Lancaster = “outlier counties”) for not properly certifying vote tallies from the May 17 primary election; they “are holding up final certification of PA’s 2022 primary election because they refuse to send the Acting Secretary of the Commonwealth (Leigh Chapman) certified returns that include every ballot lawfully cast in that election. This Court should order the three county boards that are delaying resolution of the 2022 primary election to send to the Acting Secretary certifications reflecting all lawfully cast ballots.” They are “to submit a single set of results that include[s] mail-in votes that arrived in undated external envelopes.” Those ballots have been the subject of several other lawsuits.”
Ozzie Myers Confesses To Philly Vote Fraud — The legendary Michael “Ozzie” Myers — yes, the one-time Democrat congressman for Philadelphia’s 1st District is a legend who has inspired movies and songs — is back in the news for orchestrating vote fraud in Philadelphia.
Granted, the fraud to which Ozzie copped a plea occurred in primary elections in 2014 and 2018 but only a blind fool would think similar things weren’t likely in 2020.
Myers has confessed to colluding for several years with 39th Ward judges of elections Domenick J. Demuro of the 36th Division and Marie Beren of the 2nd Division to add votes for his preferred candidates.
The Department of Justice says Myers paid Demuro between $300 and $5,000 per election while he merely directed Ms. Beren as to whom to give the votes.
That sexist bastard.
If one is Boomer like Barr who can’t get one’s mind around the tech behind 2000 Mules, ask why certified ballot-counting GOP watchers in Philly were unwillingly kept 18 feet away — an impossible distance at which to discern details — as thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of ballots were counted.
Ask whatever did happen to those USB drives and laptop used to program voting machines that were stolen from a city warehouse just before the election.
We’re sure there is an innocent explanation. Snort.
They are on a pace to hit 660 for 2022 according to Dom.
The Republicans control both chambers. The House, which has a 112-89 R edge, can impeach Krasner with a simple majority. Two-thirds of the Senate, though, is required for removal. The Republican advantage, there, is 28-20 with one independent who caucuses R, and one vacancy.
Congresswoman Carjacked In Sorosdelphia — We just learned via the great Gateway Pundit that Mary Gay Scanlon was carjacked on Pattison Avenue in Philly, about 2:45 this afternoon (Dec. 22) after leaving a meeting about development in FDR Park.
Maybe that’s why our Democrat congresswoman — Pennsylvania’s 5th District — has yet to respond to our query regarding the use of ivermectin to treat congressional covid cases.
Mary Gay, according to GP, is fine albeit she lost her 2017 Acura MDX, personal cell phone, federal government cell phone and personal ID.
The perps were two armed men. You would think a better description would be available.
Will we find it true that a conservative is a liberal who gets carjacked? Hope so but we wouldn’t bet on it.
Wasn’t that long ago, the stadium neighborhood was among the safest in the city.
Dom Explains Why Krasner Must Go— The great Dom Giordano, yesterday, had a panel discussion about Larry Krasner, the Soros-supported Philadelphia district attorney who is doing is absolute best to destroy the city.
Krasner is being challenged by in Tuesday’s Democrat primary by Carlos Vega, a long-time former assistant Philadelphia D.A.
Dom’s panel featured Victim’s Rights Advocate Maureen Faulkner; Roz Pichardo of Operation Save Our City; Nick Gerace of Protect Our Police PAC; and former Philadelphia prosecutor Richie Sax.
Then November 3, the night of the election, everything they had been predicting to me would happen, happened. I am not going to make this essay a full account of the steal. ONE SHOULD SEE SIDNEY POWELL’S SUBSEQUENT LAWSUITS AT SCOTUS FOR EXPLANATIONS AND AFFADAVITS: IT IS NOT THE POINT OF THIS ESSAY I AM WRITING HERE. But any political scientist can explain that to steal the national election one does not need “widespread election fraud”: instead, with deep election fraud in five cities, one can flip the states they are in, thereby flip the electoral college, and thereby steal the election nationally. And what do you, know, those five cites (Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Phoenix) experienced unprecedented “shutting down” of vote counting in the middle of election night on November 3. Some of those cities saw goons muscling observers away from vote counting centers on various trumped up reasons, while others taped pizza boxes across windows to block observation.In Atlanta’s State Farm Arena in Atlanta, a “water main break” forcing the evacuation of the vote counting area of and in the few hours when the courting was “closed”, hundreds of thousands of votes were pushed through the system, often showing 99.4% and even 100% runs for Biden, thousands of ballots in a row. (A month later, the Georgia investigators reported that a urinal had simply overflowed. ) In some places, security cameras caught workers in these windows grabbing cases of ballots out of hiding and feeding them into machines while counting was stopped for spurious reasons.
