    Pittsburgh City Council on Wednesday advanced legislation that would prohibit licensed mental health professionals from subjecting minors to “conversion therapy,” the practice of attempting to change a person's sexual orientation. The legislation is intended to protect gay and transgender people younger than 18 and was a response to the election of Republican Donald Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as president and vice president, said council President Bruce Kraus, a South Side Democrat. Kraus, who is gay, called conversion therapy “a form of soul murder.” “I think it's obvious if anyone has followed national news there's clearly been a change...

    Federal prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 17 to 21 years for a former Pennsylvania congressman convicted of a racketeering scheme that included a string of illicit financial moves to cover up an illegal $1 million campaign loan. Eleven-term Philadelphia Democrat Chaka Fattah is scheduled to be sentenced Monday, the denouement of a 30-year political career that took him on Air Force One and to a seat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.

    A legislative aide with Asperger's Syndrome endured so much humiliation in Brooklyn City Councilman Vincent Gentile's office — including decapitated teddy bears left on his desk — that he had to quit, a $10 million lawsuit alleges. Michael Bistreich, Gentile's former legislation and budget director, claims he was "subjected to degrading and humiliating discrimination because he is autistic" during his nearly 2˝ years with the pol. The discrimination was "perpetrated by Council Member Gentile and his senior staff, including (former chief of staff John) Mancuso," the lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court, charges. Bistreich, for example, disclosed "he identified...

    Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire. The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments. Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House. Ryan and his supporters had argued that the Democrats' grim performance in this year's elections — the latest in a string of cycles planting Republicans firmly in the majority — was a clear signal that Pelosi's leadership strategy has failed to attract the broad coalition of voters required to return the Speaker's gavel to the Democrats' hands.

According to the official, the 35-year-old Hawaii congresswoman is being looked as a candidate for secretary of state, secretary of defense or United Nations ambassador. If selected, Gabbard will be the first woman as well as the youngest pick for Trump's Cabinet. She met with him this morning in his New York City offices at Trump Tower.

    Liberals who worked so hard to elect Hillary Clinton, unsurprisingly view Trump’s victory as a “cataclysm.” The Democracy Alliance, a club of liberal donors and activists, chose to meet in Washington, D.C. to address the “terrifying assault” President Donald Trump could have on its “progressive vision.” Politico reported the schedule of events for the Nov. 13-16, Democracy Alliance conference. The list read like a Who’s Who of George Soros connections. Soros himself, who spent at least $25 million supporting Clinton’s failed presidential bid, will speak the last day of the conference. Soros also gave at least $118,901,567 between 2000 and...

    HARRISBURG (KDKA) – Nearly 100,000 Pennsylvania Democrats have switched to Republican since the beginning of the year. What’s more: The Pennsylvania Republican party says more than 240-thousand new voters have joined the party since last November.

The party says the new numbers come from the Pennsylvania Department of State which shows that 97,607 Democrats have actually switched to Republican.

    Tens of thousands of Democrats hate Hillary Clinton like she hates ordinary Americans. They don’t believe she’ll provide the changes America needs. They believe she is a liar. Many of them are breaking with the Democratic Party to support Trump.

    CBS News’ veteran anchor Bob Schieffer expressed outrage Sunday that Republican nominee Donald Trump focused attention on the women who accused former President Bill Clinton of rape and sexual assault. “How have we come to this? This is supposed to be a campaign for the most powerful office of the land. Here we’re marching in women into the hall who supposed to have some relationship with one of the candidate’s spouses. What’s that supposed to prove?” The “relationships” that the women had with Bill Clinton allegedly included rape and violent sexual assault. “We were not willing participants,” said rape accuser...

    Hello Young People! Apparently you are not showing sufficient enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton's coronation, so the Democrats are unleashing their secret weapon to bring your vote around - Al Gore. Younger members reading this might remember him as the old dude who made that neat sci-fi epic movie about 10 years ago. He's actually here as the ambassador on one issue that polls well among your demographic, so he occasionally emerges from his energy-guzzling mansion and flies around the world in his private jet to lecture us on the dangers of... climate change. Welcome to 2016, where the party that's supposed to...

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign purportedly compiled a massive “hits” file on Democratic primary opponent Bernie Sanders, calling into question his “progressive bona fides” on issues ranging from labor to guns to Wall Street, according to a new trove of emails posted by WikiLeaks. The 71-page, nearly 50,000-word document was released Monday as the second installment in WikiLeaks’ dump of Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta’s alleged emails. The email, titled “PLS REVIEW: Sanders Hits,” was sent by campaign research director Tony Carrk on Oct. 28, 2015 – nearly nine months before the liberal Vermont senator would endorse Clinton following their protracted primary...
  • Sanders supporters seethe over Clinton's leaked remarks to Wall St.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Supporters of former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Saturday expressed anger and vindication over leaked comments made by Hillary Clinton to banks and big business that appeared to confirm their fears about her support for global trade and tendency to cozy up to Wall Street. Clinton, who needs Sanders' coalition of young and left-leaning voters to propel her to the presidency, pushes for open trade and open borders in one of the speeches, and takes a conciliatory approach to Wall Street, both positions she later backed away from in an effort to capture the popular...
