  • Mask order in Pa. could last until there is a coronavirus vaccine, Wolf says, and he’s ‘concerned’ about new ‘breakouts'

    Pa. Gov. Tom Wolf said Monday that an expanded mask-wearing order signed by his Health Sectary last week could be in place until there is a coronavirus vaccine. Speaking at an event at the PSECU Child Care Center Playground where new means of funding and support for child care centers was discussed, Wolf later fielded a question regarding how long the mask-wearing order would be in place and if there were any indicators that he was watching for regarding possibly ending it sooner rather than later. “I’m sort of thinking this is until we get a vaccine, but I don’t...
  • It Looks Like the Anti-Flynn Judge Could Defy Appeals Court and Keep This Clown Show Going

    So, will this anti-Flynn judge drop the case? Well, Margot Cleveland wrote in The Federalist that he could opt to keep this clown show going: …as the respondent to Flynn’s petition for mandamus, Sullivan has the same options a normal litigant would have, including seeking review of the panel decision by the entire D.C. Circuit or requesting review by the United States Supreme Court. Given that Judge Robert Wilkins dissented from the majority opinion, authored by Judge Neomi Rao and joined by Judge Karen Henderson, Sullivan might just opt for open defiance. Such a course of action would be a...

    Nevada’s month-old stay-at-home order, set to expire Thursday at midnight, will be extended two weeks to May 15, though some coronavirus restrictions will be eased starting Friday, Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered Wednesday. The governor announced the move early Wednesday evening. While the stay-at-home order remains in place, along with a limit on public gatherings to fewer than 10 people, the following will be relaxed: — All retail businesses, including those previously deemed nonessential, will be allowed to operate under a “curbside commerce model” similar to curbside pickup now allowed for restaurants and eateries. This includes curbside sales for retail marijuana...

  • Gavin Newsom’s housing lawsuit put 47 California cities on notice. Is yours on the list?

    Fresno Bee ^ | February 19, 2019 | Bryan Anderson and Madeline Ashmun
    Encinitas is just the kind of place Gavin Newsom might want to sue. A local voter-approved initiative from 2013 makes planning for affordable homes nearly impossible, preventing the wealthy city of 60,000 from complying with a state law that requires local governments to build more housing. The city has already spent $3.5 million in the last few years fighting a pair of housing-related lawsuits. The bill could climb if Newsom follows through on a threat to hold local governments accountable to the state housing law.

    For just about the first time in their angry, pathetic lives, the far-left activists aren’t getting their way … and they are absolutely losing it as a result. During the eight years of Obama’s presidency, and arguably during the 20 years preceding that, the country shifted toward the left, pushed inexorably by the real powers behind the throne (progressive media and liberal public education). Thanks to the unceasing indefatigable efforts of the far left, things that were unthinkable a generation ago are now standard. Sue Christian bakeries out of existence! Put satanic transgenders in library story hours for children! Win...

    For awhile now I have been amazed but not surprised. People are confounded at the situation we are in in this country. The obvious steps to correct the problems are not taken. Evil prevails. Obvious criminals prosper. Violence in our country and around the world escalates. While numerous articles are posted that events that replicate what will occur in the End Days actually are occurring now. And people still don't understand why situations seem not to be able to improve. When Jesus was physically on the earth, the leaders could not force the death of Jesus but why the Father...

    Morning Joe suffered a split personality today over President Trump's tweets alleging that President Obama had tapped his phones. On the one hand, Joe and Mika waxed apocalyptic, claiming the country is "in crisis" and questioning President Trump's "stability." At one point, Mika even seemed to choke up as she said, "this is really a dark time which could get worse." But at the same time, Joe Scarborough zeroed in on former Obama spox Josh Earnest's "very legalistic" responses to questioning by ABC's Martha Raddatz. On This Week, Raddatz cited former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau's tweet, warning "I'd be careful...

    Dr. Ben Carson’s brilliance is beyond debate. However, there is a definite reason why I would trust the famed neurosurgeon to operate on my child’s brain and not entrust him with the Oval Office. Now, the former presidential candidate has declared that it is time to “put on the table” a discussion on whether or not we actually need the Second Amendment.

    The fact that - as Sands points out - in certain circles the 500 euro note is known as the "Bin Laden" confirms the arguments against it. Sands' extensive analysis is totally convincing on the linkage between high denomination notes and crime. He is surely right that illicit activities are facilitated when a million dollars weighs 2.2 pounds as with the 500 euro note rather than more than 50 pounds as would be the case if the $20 bill was the high denomination note. And he is equally correct in arguing that technology is obviating whatever need there may ever...

    The politically correct culture that has infected our college campuses has finally reached the apex of absurdity. Schools like the University of Vermont are now hosting their very own re-education camps, to teach their Caucasian students about the racial biases they never knew they had. Between the 13th and 15th of November, the school ran their "Examining White Privilege" retreat for all students who "self-identified as white." According to the description of the event, it was designed to give students the "opportunity to conceptualize and articulate whiteness from a personal and systematic lens," and "recognize and understand white privilege from...

    Legal and illegal immigrants will hit a record high of 51 million in just eight years and eventually account for an astounding 82 percent of all population growth in America, according to new U.S. Census figures. A report from the Center for Immigration Studies that analyzed the statistics said that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the immigrant population totals 78 million. The report was provided to Secrets and released Wednesday evening.

    She hasn’t even announced, but the question has already resurfaced: Will Bill Clinton’s baggage derail Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes? Just a few weeks ago, reports broke that Bill Clinton had flown at least 11 times on “The Lolita Express” — a private plane owned by the mysterious financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. According to Virginia Roberts, who claims to have been one of Epstein’s many teenaged sex slaves, Clinton also visited Epstein’s private Caribbean retreat, known as “Orgy Island.”

    Did an Ohio elementary school jump the gun in its punishment of a 10-year-old? Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in North Columbus, Ohio, suspended a fifth grader for three days after he pointed his finger in the shape of a gun at another student’s head. Paul Entingh said his 10-year-old son, Nathan, was just messing around during science class. "He asked his friend to borrow a pencil and when his friend dropped it, my son Nathan was playing around and he did that with his fingers. Pointed it at the kid, said 'boom,'" Entingh told Fox 28. Paul and Nathan were...
