    Philadelphia this week became the first major U.S. city to bring back its mask mandate in response to rising cases of the BA.2 coronavirus strain, which could test the limits of a pandemic-weary public. Beginning Monday, residents of the City of Brotherly Love will be required to wear masks while in public indoor spaces and businesses will be required to report on each other regarding noncompliance.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA—The Philadelphia Police Department today confirmed Santa Claus was sleighjacked while trying to deliver toys to all the good little boys and girls in the city. "I parked to check Google Maps and suddenly there was this guy with a gun forcing me out of the sleigh," a tearful Claus told police. "I didn't have time to dig through my sacks of toys to get out a Red Ryder BB Gun and defend myself. It all happened so fast." "Ugh, I had over seven PS5s on that thing!" Claus says the sleighjacker pushed him out of the sleigh and...
  • Philadelphia to bar cops from pulling drivers over for minor traffic violations (“driving while black” legislation)

    11/01/2021 6:03:25 AM PDT · by janetjanet998 · 30 replies
    Philadelphia is poised to bar its cops from pulling drivers over for minor traffic violations — like broken tail lights and bumper issues — which will make it the first major US city to enact so-called “driving while black” legislation. The Driving Equality Bill, passed earlier this month by the City Council, could be signed as early as this week by Mayor Jim Kenney, according to CNN. The package of bills would classify vehicle registration infractions, broken brake lights and flouting inspection evidence regulations as “secondary” violations, meaning police would be prohibited from pulling motorists over if those traffic infractions...

Investigators claimed that 90 to 100 shots may have been fired by one or more gunmen into the crowd, killing two young men and injuring a 16-year-old girl, NBC 10 reported.

    Event intended to highlight immigrant chefs apologizes for including Israeli food truck A Philadelphia organization that works to feature immigrant chefs canceled a planned food truck festival over social media criticism that an Israeli vendor would be included. Eat Up the Borders, which operates a recurring food festival featuring immigrant chefs, axed their event after receiving criticism for including Moshava, a food truck and catering company run by an Israeli immigrant. The organizers said it would be wrong to include Moshava without also featuring a Palestinian truck. Moshava's Brandon Ferrio, who cofounded the business with Israeli immigrant Nir Sheynfeld, said...

    Naked Philadelphia bikers need only bring their masks. Participants in the annual Philly Naked Bike Ride can ditch their clothes to ride as long as they follow the Aug. 28 event’s mask guidance, which was put in place before the city this week lifted most of its coronavirus restrictions. Organizers said they haven’t met since the city updated its guidance, so for now, they’re “going to stick with our initial mask guidance.” The 10-mile ride, which was canceled last year due to the pandemic, has been promoted this year as the “mask edition.”

'I thought we would respond in a different way.'PHILADELPHIA, P.A. — A men’s shoes and accessories store in Center City, Philadelphia was looted last summer during the Black Lives Matter riots. Owner Steve Jamison, a black man who started Blue Sole Shoes in 2007, did not see it coming. “I just thought that Philly was different,” he told me. “I thought we would respond in a different way.” Jamison was at home when people first broke into his store on May 31.

    When I was a journalist, I loved Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.’s assertion that the Constitution and the First Amendment are not just about protecting “free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.” But as a government official traveling around the world championing the virtues of free speech, I came to see how our First Amendment standard is an outlier. Even the most sophisticated Arab diplomats that I dealt with did not understand why the First Amendment allows someone to burn a Koran. Why, they asked me, would you ever want to...

    How curious that, as Baris notes, “Trump won the largest non-white vote share for a Republican presidential candidate in 60 years. Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton in every major metro area around the country, save for Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia.” Robert Barnes, the foremost election analyst, observes in these “big cities in swing states run by Democrats…the vote even exceeded the number of registered voters.” Trump’s victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin were on target until, in the middle of the night, counting was arbitrarily halted. Was this election stolen? Well, millions feel that way. The turnout numbers are odd...

    Until all the votes are counted and all the allegations of voter fraud are investigated, I think it’s too early to declare a winner in the 2020 race. You keep fighting. For now, the legal challenges are hitting snags in the courts. Still, President Trump should keep fighting to the end. We have dead people voting. We have allegations of ballots being illegally backdated. Everything should be looked at right now.  Was this election stolen? Well, millions feel that way. The turnout numbers are odd in some states, like Wisconsin, which hit 89 percent. Now, is that figure impossible? No....

    Computer thumb drives used to program Philadelphia voting machines were stolen from a city warehouse along with the laptop of an employee from the machines’ manufacturer. The items were stolen from a warehouse in the city’s East Falls section, city election commission spokesman Nick Custodio said in a brief emailed statement, adding: “We are confident that this incident will not in any way compromise the integrity of the election.” The Philadelphia Inquirer, which first reported the theft in the majority Democratic city, said they were stolen this week. The laptop did not hold any “sensitive election-related data” and was not...

    With the Garden State tightening restrictions on indoor dining in response to recent spikes in COVID-19 cases, many are wondering if Philadelphia will be doing the same. The warning bells are being sounded by Pennsylvania’s health officials. “We are now seeing the highest case counts of the COVID-19 pandemic that we have seen since the beginning,” said Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine. --SNIP-- The protests, celebrations and demonstrations over the election and vote tallying are also a concern. Farley is urging anyone who participated — even while wearing a mask — to get tested for COVID-19 after seven days...

    Legacy media are lying when they claim that all of President Trump’s allegations of voter fraud are baseless. I know, because I argued a case on the president’s behalf in federal court in Philadelphia. At issue was President Trump’s request for an order changing the way Pennsylvania absentee and mail-in ballots are being reviewed at the Philadelphia Convention Center. CNN and others claim he “lost.” That’s false: he won. As I made that argument on behalf of the president’s campaign, I can tell you what really happened. President Trump went to court about two problems: First, only a handful of...

    PHILADELPHIA - Here in the birthplace of American democracy, election officials are scrambling to prepare for a presidential vote they fear could plunge the nation into a historic political crisis. Philadelphia’s Board of Elections plans to move its counting operations to a 125,000-square foot space in the city’s convention center. Dozens of staffers, feeding expensive new machines to open envelopes and process mail-in ballots, will spend days tallying hundreds of thousands of votes - under intense scrutiny from partisan observers. The workers likely will discard thousands of ballots that are not properly completed or do not arrive in a special...
