    DNA evidence and forensic genealogy led to the arrest of a 75-year-old Pennsylvania man in the 1969 rape and murder of a go-go dancer who was found dead in her San Diego apartment, police said. John Sipos was arrested Saturday at his home in Schnecksville for the murder of 24-year-old Mary Scott, who was discovered lifeless after being strangled nearly 51 years ago in her apartment on Nov. 20, 1969, San Diego police announced Tuesday. Sipos was identified as a suspect by investigators using DNA evidence left at the crime scene and forensic genealogy. Authorities had previously “exhausted all leads”...

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday condemned local Democrat officials for failing to stop rioting and looting in Philadelphia the previous evening in reaction to a police shooting of a black man. “It’s a terrible thing. What I’m witnessing is terrible and frankly, that the mayor or whoever it is that’s allowing people to riot and loot and not stop them is just a horrible thing,” Trump said. ... “We’re watching it very closely and we’re waiting for a call. If they want help, we’re there; we’ll be in there within one hour,” he said. Trump said that local officials had...
  • Can We Trust Pennsylvania’s Polls? They show Joe Biden clinching crucial counties. So why does it feel so different on the ground here?

    Polls show Mr. Biden leading by five to 13 points, but I grew up around here and am dubious. This place — the land of hoagies and Bradley Cooper and Rocky Balboa worship and Tina Fey’s “Cousin Karen” accent — has transmogrified into Trumplandia. “He has so much more support than in 2016, because it’s been four years of accomplishments,” said Darinna Thompson, 49, a homemaker who was talking with a group of women outside the Trump Store. Pollsters say that suburban women are President Trump’s kryptonite, that they’ve turned on him. “I feel like that’s wrong — we’re the...
  • States Should Stop Treating Sober Cannabis Consumers As Public Menaces

    10/28/2020 12:41:19 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | October 28, 2020 | Jacob Sullum
    Four years ago, Pennsylvania allowed patients suffering from any of 17 serious medical conditions to relieve their symptoms with marijuana. But there was a catch: If they used cannabis as a medicine, they could no longer legally drive. Last week, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives approved a bill that would eliminate that legal disability by requiring evidence of impairment to convict medical marijuana patients of driving under the influence. That reform points the way to an overdue reevaluation of DUI laws that irrationally and unfairly punish cannabis consumers who pose no threat to public safety. Thirty-three states have legalized medical...

    The Republican Party nominated its first presidential candidate in 1856, putting up John C. Fremont against Democrat James Buchanan, who had been a senator from Pennsylvania. Fremont lost Pennsylvania to Buchanan and lost the election.Four years later, the Republicans nominated Abraham Lincoln, who ran in a divided nation against a divided Democratic Party and won Pennsylvania -- and also the presidency.Lincoln won Pennsylvania again in 1864, and Ulysses S. Grant won it in 1868 and 1872.A pattern had been established: Since the Civil War, only two Republicans have been elected president while losing Pennsylvania. The first was Richard M. Nixon,...

    Nearly a dozen people – including a 15-year-old – were shot overnight after looting and rioting in Philadelphia erupted for a second straight night despite pleas for peace from the family of a Black man whose police-related death sparked the unrest. About 1,000 people took the streets of the city of Brotherly Love late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning purportedly to demand justice for the death of Walter Wallace Jr., who was fatally shot by police on Monday. Instead, the protests quickly devolved into violent riots and looting of stores across the city. Crowds of dozens were seen ransacking...

Rioters broke pipes in the ceiling, flooding the store. Fox29 reporter Steve Keeley tweeted video from inside the pillaged Walmart early Wednesday morning. The footage shows the devastation left behind by looters who stole everything from big-screen televisions to small appliances. Water is seen spraying from pipes in the ceiling. The unrest began after two officers shot and killed an armed Black man, Walter Wallace, Jr. Video captured by a witness...

    According to Blaze reporter Elijah Schaffer, Philadelphia Police have lost control of the riot and white people are now being “specifically targeted and attacked.” The mob is so anti-white, that Antifa was not welcome with them and had to hold a separate demonstration in another location. Schaffer, who was violently attacked earlier in the evening while reporting live from a shop that was being looted, tweeted that the rioters are also “shooting each other.” “Philadelphia police have completely lost control of the affected rioting region which stretches multiple city blocks,” Schaffer tweeted. “Looters have broken into over 30+ stores...

    As reported earlier “mostly peaceful” Black Lives Matter protesters rioted, looted and attacked police in Philadelphia on Monday night after police shot a black man who was threatening them with a knife. The BLM believes the cops are to blame. The far left protest immediately turned into rioting and looting. One female police officer was run over by a truck. Several more were injured. The city was run over by rioters. On Tuesday Democrat Governor Tom Wolf suggested the mass riots were peaceful protests

    Here we go again. By the numbers: Countless: Brazen acts of violence and riots that plague the “City of Brotherly Love.” Thirty: Number of Philadelphia police officers, including one run over by a truck, injured in the latest trashing of the city by looters and thugs. Too numerous to quantify: Items stolen; dumpsters and police cars set on fire; shards of glass from shattered storefronts; and lives destroyed. 1.4 million: Philadelphians who continue to suffer under Mayor Jim Kenney’s unprecedented incompetence - their just desserts for re-electing him. Zero: On a scale of one to ten, Philly’s prospects for becoming...

    The County Election Board for Luzerne County, Pennsylvania has filed a motion today with the Supreme Court for Justice Barrett to be recused from participating in the case. The basis of the motion is one that has been written and talked about by pundits over the last two weeks — whether President Trump’s nomination of Judge Barrett and public statements of support which mentioned pending election law cases have created a circumstance where a prior decision of the Supreme Court, Caperton v. A.T. Massey Coal Co., which has never been overruled, would find a “due process” violation in the rights...

    New early voting data showed Democrats failing to hit their mark in several battleground states, giving Trump campaign officials more reasons for optimism Tuesday as President Trump rallied voters in key Midwestern states and Democrat Joseph R. Biden made a play for traditionally red Georgia. In Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona, Democrats are falling short of their target of 70% of early votes cast either in-person or by mail. That’s the lead they hoped to build up to stave off an expected higher Republican turnout on Election Day.“The Democrats have not opened up a large enough lead in...

    Two Democrat senators who profess to be pro-life voted against the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett on Monday. The U.S. Senate confirmed the conservative, pro-life justice in a 52-48 vote, with every Democrat and one Republican, U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, of Maine, voting against her confirmation Democrat Sens. Bob Casey Jr., of Pennsylvania, and Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, joined the rest of their party in opposing Barrett. The two men say they are pro-life, but they voted against a highly-qualified, pro-life woman who has the potential to help stop abortions in the U.S. and protect...
