  • Pro-Abortion Gov. Wolf on Mississippi Abortion Case: ‘Another Attempt Dismantle Individual Freedoms’

    Pennsylvania’s pro-abortion Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, issued a statement on Thursday slamming the Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The Court heard oral arguments for the case on Wednesday, which surrounds a Mississippi law that bans abortions at 15 weeks. Dobbs is the first case in decades with the potential to overturn Roe v. Wade. In his statement, Wolf called the pro-life movement “anti-choice” and said that the Supreme Court could negatively affecting women and “birthing people” with their decision. “Today’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court demonstrate another attempt to dismantle individual freedoms across the...

    Gov. Tom Wolf (D) vetoed legislation Thursday that would have removed the state’s requirement that law-abiding Pennsylvanians get a permit before carrying a gun for self-defense. On November 17, 2021, Breitbart News reported that legislation to make Pennsylvania the 22nd constitutional carry state was headed to Wolf’s desk. Wolf’s opposition to the legislation was well known, and NBC Philadelphia noted that he vetoed constitutional carry on Thursday. He called the bill “dangerous,” adding, “This legislation, which eliminates the requirement for individuals to obtain a license before carrying a concealed firearm, will only exacerbate gun violence and jeopardize the safety of...

    The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania on Tuesday reinstated the Gov. Tom Wolf administration mandate requiring students, teachers and staff to wear face masks. The action is temporary, with the court scheduled to hear arguments on the matter on Dec. 8 and decides its fate. The court noted it has taken no position; one justice disagreed with reinstating the mandate. Acting state Secretary of Health Alison Beam, at the direction of the governor, had imposed the state-wide mandate at the start of the school year after most school districts failed to adopt policies mandating masks at the start of the school...

    A male gray wolf known as OR-93 was killed after being hit by a vehicle off Interstate 5 near Lebec on Nov. 10, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife announced Wednesday. OR-93 was born in northern Oregon in 2019. His travel has been closely monitored since federal wildlife officials fitted the young wolf with a purple tracking collar in June 2020. The wolf was first tracked in California on Jan. 30, 2021. OR-93 briefly returned to Oregon before reentering California to begin his trek south. The wolf traveled hundreds of miles and was tracked in various regions of the...

    Gov. Tom Wolf apologized on Tuesday for his “honest mistake” in asking his wife to deliver his mail-in ballot for the Nov. 2 election. In a morning interview on the same KDKA radio show where he admitted to a violation of an election law two weeks ago, Wolf apologized. “I’m sorry. I did it. It was an honest mistake,” Wolf said. “But yeah, it was. I guess they say ignorance of the law is no defense, but I’m sorry, I apologize” Wolf admitted he asked his wife Frances to drop off his ballot. “It was my idea. She said I’m...

    STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania—More than 200 people attended a medical freedom rally on the steps of Old Main at Penn State University on Friday. They are part of a national trend as more people facing unwanted COVID-19 vaccinations are gathering and speaking publicly about the difficult choice they face: get the shots or leave your job. The measure stems from President Joe Biden’s mandates requiring many workplaces to ensure employees are vaccinated. At Penn State, employees may apply for religious or medical exemption from the vaccine mandate. Those who get the exemption would have to get tested weekly to assure they...

    The Pennsylvania Department of Health refuses to share complete information about how it counted COVID-19 deaths for reports ordered by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. The reports were ordered a year ago when the House unanimously approved a resolution in November 2020, requiring the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee (LBFC) to review the Department of Health’s reporting of COVID-19 testing and deaths. State Rep. Kate Klunk sponsored the legislation, House Resolution 1087 of 2020, noting that throughout the pandemic, there have been discrepancies in the information published by the Department of Health, including thousands of COVID-19 positive cases being removed...

    At least 10 Lancaster County school districts have announced a return to mask-optional policies following a Commonwealth Court decision on Wednesday voiding the state acting secretary of health’s order requiring students, employees and visitors to wear masks while inside school buildings. Conestoga Valley, Donegal, Elizabethtown Area, Ephrata Area, Hempfield, Lampeter-Strasburg, Penn Manor, Pequea Valley, Solanco and Warwick school district administrators during a frenetic Wednesday afternoon shared that they are returning to the mask-optional policy outlined in their original board-approved health and safety plans immediately. Eastern Lancaster County School District is already essentially mask-optional, as it has allowed parents to opt...

    Pennsylvania’s requirement that teachers and school students and staff must wear masks to guard against COVID-19 is invalid because the official who issued it lacked authority to do so, a sharply divided Commonwealth Court ruled Wednesday. Acting Health Secretary Alison Beam issued that order in August and it has been in force since Sept. 7, causing considerable discord among parents who oppose or favor the measure. Yet Beam had no legal standing to issue such and edict because Gov. Tom Wolf did not have a disaster emergency proclamation in effect that would make the measure enforceable, Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon...

    HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Wolf on Tuesday revealed his wife, First Lady Frances Wolf, dropped his mail ballot off for him, a violation of Pennsylvania election law. State law currently prohibits, in most cases, anyone other than the voter from returning a mail ballot, an act punishable by up to one year in prison, a fine of up to $1,000, or both. On the “KDKA Radio Morning Show,” host Kevin Battle asked Wolf if he visited the polls to vote in person during Tuesday’s municipal election. “I didn’t show up in person at the polls. We voted a couple weeks...

    In 1967, as part of a government reorganization, the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board was formed from two previous boards, to oversee the Department of Natural Resources. The board governs the Department of Natural Resources. It is part of a long history of Citizen controlled boards in Wisconsin. The board members are not paid. The governor appoints board members. The state senate confirms their appointment. There are seven members, who serve six-year staggered terms. There has never before been a dispute about who controls the Department of Natural Resources, and who makes policy. This is confirmed by the Department of Natural...

    Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration’s COVID-19 vaccine incentive program launched on Monday has drawn mixed reactions across state government. While the 72,000 commonwealth employees who work under the governor’s jurisdiction now eligible for up to five paid days off or a lump sum equivalent if they get vaccinated by Dec. 31, many government workers who work outside those agencies will not be given the same enticement to get their shots. Neither the Senate chamber nor the House Republicans plan to offer anything similar at this time, spokesmen said. A spokeswoman for the Office of Attorney General said her agency doesn’t plan...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A judge has granted a request from wildlife advocacy groups and blocked Wisconsin’s fall wolf hunt two weeks before hunters were set to take to the woods. Dane County Circuit Judge Jacob Frost issued a temporary injunction Friday halting the season, which was set to begin Nov. 6. The order comes as part of a lawsuit wildlife advocacy groups filed in August seeking to stop the hunt and invalidate a state law authorizing annual seasons. The groups sued after the Department of Natural Resources board brushed aside calls to cancel the fall season after hunters exceeded...

    Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration has announced the creation of a $5 million grant program designed to spur COVID-19 vaccination in underserved communities. Wolf announced the new COVID-19 Vaccine Outreach Grant Program at an event in Philadelphia Friday afternoon. The program will provide grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 for outreach efforts. The money can be used for community-based vaccination events, supplies, equipment to set up vaccine appointments, training materials and media buys, the Wolf administration said. Earlier this week, Pennsylvania reached a milestone with 70% of the state’s adults being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. But the governor and state lawmakers...

    Conservation groups have expressed outrage after the US Department of Agriculture revealed it killed eight young wolves in an Idaho forest. The Timberline wolf pack - unofficially "adopted" by students at Boise's Timberline High School over the past 18 years - appears to have been among the targets. Their den, on public lands in Boise National Forest, was found empty this spring. An official from the Agriculture Department confirmed federal agents had killed the animals in order to force the adult wolves to relocate.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. — Schools across Pennsylvania are still dealing with the low rate of vaccinations for young children, which has increased the need for masks in the classroom. According to Gov. Tom Wolf, getting vaccine shots into the arms of school-aged children remains a roadblock in lifting the mask mandate in schools across Pennsylvania. "I think the key is not so much the date as when the vaccine becomes available to all school children and how fast we can get them vaccinated," Wolf said. The governor's mask mandate went into effect in early September. However, Wolf said he initially planned...

    Amid some encouraging news that Pennsylvania’s rate of new COVID-19 cases appears to be leveling off, Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday once again drew attention to persistent COVID-19 related health disparities among minority communities. Wolf used the backdrop of one of the region’s largest providers of health care to impoverished communities to once again urge ethnic and racial minorities to get vaccinated. “This is a sales pitch,” said Wolf during a press conference held at the Hamilton Health Center in Harrisburg. The center provides care for more than 20,000 underserved central Pennsylvania residents, the majority of them Black or Latino....

    School administrators have faced hostility from some parents and residents after Pennsylvania’s mask order for schools took effect last month. This week, the Pennsylvania Principals Association released a survey indicating the intense backlash they are encountering from parents who oppose the statewide mask order. The survey found 44% of the principals who responded said they were threatened “by a parent, student, or community member as a result of the mask mandate.” The survey included responses from 449 members. Dr. Eric Eshbach, executive director of the Pennsylvania Principals Association, said some of the threats didn’t necessarily indicate violence. Some parents have...
