    News articles concerning the most influential political donors in America typically list the same names: The Koch brothers, George Soros, Sheldon Adelson and, lately, Tom Steyer. But as we reach the end of 2015, none of these billionaires has spent big in the 2016 contest, at least not at an individual candidate level. In their absence, a number of lesser known donors are shaping up to be major players in 2016. Here are five to watch: 1. The DeVos Family We're cheating by including a whole family in our list, but there is no way of separating out this high-spending...

    On January 13, Kathie Lee Gifford and Today Show co-host Hoda Kotb interviewed actor Dean Cain on his current television show as well as his upcoming role in a movie due out this year which depicts the horrific crimes on women and their babies by abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Gosnell ran a filthy, un-inspected abortion clinic in West Philadelphia for decades. During that time he killed women, delivered viable babies alive and killed them by severing their spinal cords with scissors, and seriously injured women, leaving them unable to have children. In 2013, Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder in the...

    Almost everyone had something to say about Thursday's incident in which a gunman who said he supported ISIS attacked Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett with a gun, shooting him 17 times. Everyone except resident Obama, that is, who over the course of his administration has shown a willingness to reply instantly and passionately when police are accused of a shooting. When Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked about the latest Islamic lone wolf to stage an attack on American soil, the White House had two words to say, according to Kelly: "No comment." She then discussed the implications of the...

    Workers from nine U.S. airports are planning to block bridges, march through terminals and protest at airline headquarters during a day of civil disobedience on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The workers - a mix of cleaners, baggage handlers, fuelers and wheelchair attendants - will risk arrest at airports and other locations including the Mall, to bring attention to their campaign for better wages, the Service Employees International Union said. The actions are the latest in the airport workers' campaign for a $15-per-hour minimum wage, a benefits package and job protections. They're also protesting threats against their efforts to unionize....

    "If newspapers are having trouble turning a profit without deep annual cuts, how about becoming a nonprofit?" That was the question posed just a few months ago by an article in NiemanLab, a news industry publication. Late Monday night, in a stunning development for a struggling business, that's pretty close to what the storied Philadelphia Inquirer and its sister publications, the Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com, reported that they would become. Philly.com reported that owner H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest donated the entire Philadelphia Media Network (PMN), which runs all three of the outlets, to the nonprofit Institute for Journalism in New...

    --SNIP-- Questions lingered as to just how much Archer had in common with other U.S. Muslims who have recently carried out acts of violence inspired by - if not coordinated with - radical Islamic groups. His trip in October 2011 to Saudi Arabia occurred during the Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca required at least once of all dutiful followers of the faith. His 10-month stay in Egypt the next year overlapped with the beginnings of that country's uprising against then-President Mohammed Morsi

Philadelphia’s brand new mayor, Jim Kenney, was quick out of the gate to declare that this was a problem because of all the guns out on the streets. You’ll notice that he hasn’t had much more to say on that subject since it turned out that the gun in question had been stolen from a cop’s home and probably traded around among gang members like a baseball card.

This week, no sooner had his relatively sparsely viewed presser ended and his clearly manufactured tears about gun violence dried, than his central argument -- that gun control, not fighting Islamic terrorism, should be our priority -- was exposed as nonsense. A thug, who had stolen a gun from a cop, used it in Philadelphia to try to assassinate a law enforcement officer. Echoing Obama Philadelphia's Democratic Mayor declared Jim...

    HARRISBURG - State Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, who has castigated prosecutors, judges, and others for exchanging offensive emails, failed to disclose that her twin sister - a top prosecutor on her staff - sent and received emails that mocked African Americans and Asians, joked about domestic abuse, and included photos of scantily clad men and women. Kane made public her sister's emails late Wednesday after coming under pressure from a Philadelphia prosecutor, who asserted that Kane's sister had sent or received 58 troubling emails - and Kane herself had received 11. The 49-year-old Democrat and her sister, Ellen Granahan,...

    Dolph Schayes, who polished his game on the Bronx playgrounds, played 15 seasons as a professional and was once voted one of the 50 best players to play in the National Basketball Association, died on Thursday in Syracuse. He was 87. His son Danny Schayes, who played 18 seasons in the N.B.A. as a 6-foot-11 center, said the cause was cancer. At 6 feet 8 inches and 220 pounds, Schayes played the position now known as power forward, becoming a stalwart for the Syracuse Nationals from 1949 to 1963 after earning all-American status at New York University. When the Nationals...

    Philadelphia's mayor on Tuesday vowed to find the "coward" who left a pig's head at the door of a Philadelphia mosque. The head was found outside the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society early Monday morning. "We all know of the terrible, thoughtless, ignorant act that someone perpetrated in this city yesterday," said Mayor Michael Nutter. "We will, of course, at some point in time find the coward." Pork and pork byproducts are haram, or forbidden, in Islam.

    --SNIP-- Napier came to Camden at age 5 but never became a U.S. citizen. He was deported July 30 because of a 1998 drug conviction that labeled him a high-priority candidate. Napier, who once spent his time coaching youth basketball and going out to dinner with his wife, now lives with a distant cousin in St. Thomas, a rural community outside of Kingston that this year was ranked the Jamaica's most impoverished parish. It is a foreign place to Napier

    Colleges and universities in and around Philadelphia are bolstering police patrols today after federal agencies notified them of a threat made on an Internet post. The threat was posted Friday on 4chan, the same website that carried postings threatening a school in the "northwest" the day before nine people were slain at an Oregon college, a law-enforcement source with knowledge of the Philly threat confirmed to the Daily News. "This is only the beginning, . . . " the Philly-area threat says. "On October 5, 2015 at 1:00 PM CT, a fellow robot will take up arms against a university...

    ---SNIP--- The lead story on the diversity of education in city schools features a photo that has no African American students, even though their school is 60 percent non-white. Tom McGrath, the magazine's editor, took responsibility for the photo, which shows seven students from Albert M. Greenfield Elementary School sitting along a brick wall outside its Center City campus. "We blew it," McGrath wrote. "To include not even one African American child on the cover fails to reflect not just the diversity that exists at the Greenfield School, but also that within the city of Philadelphia."

    In a disturbing turn of events, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, a graduate of a Jesuit high school, reportedly used the appearance of Pope Francis in Philadelphia to push the gay agenda. Nutter had previously promised to ask the pope to "end judgment" of LGBT people by the church and then today, the mayor used his public appearance before hundreds of thousands of Catholics who gathered to see the pope to do just that. Speaking at Independence Hall before the pope, the mayor said "In America, everyone has rights...Our lesbian, gay and bisexual citizens continue to fight for equality." "Keep fighting...

    Pope Francis made a thinly-veiled swipe at Donald Trump as the Pontiff defended Latino immigrants who came to America at 'great personal cost' during a moving speech to 40,000 followers in Philadelphia. Francis called on migrants from Mexico and the rest of the world to 'not feel discouraged by all the challenges and hardships' they face, saying they should never feel ashamed of their own traditions. The Pope's words come in direct contrast to Trump's calls for a wall to be built along the Mexican border and for stricter controls on who can enter the US. Speaking from the lectern...
