Guess what the demographic is in that neighborhood. How will the left spin this? I went to college in Philadelphia 1971-75 and this was a bad neighborhood even back then.

Fox News Channel reported the police were conducting a drug raid and were ambushed by at least two gunmen. Reportedly, over 100 rounds were fired by the drug dealers at the police officers. Glad as heck that the police officers were wearing their vests.

Did Kamala Harris put out a statement saying, "Well, if the cops don't stop murdering poor black kids who are just starting to get their lives together and are going to college in the fall, there will be more of this. HANDS UP DON'T SHOOT!" What? She didn't say that? Well, she could have so even though it's false, it's accurate.

I feel sorry for Temple and UofP students, virtual prisoners on their campuses. The area around Penn is worse if anything.

#1, if you guessed Pennsylvania Dutch, try again! I'm glued to our TV, more worried about this than my badass Temple undergraduate daughter. Gunshots are a weekly event outside her posse's rented rowhouse a block off campus.

Far left liberal Democrat city, if you recall the Mayor breaking out in song over being a sanctuary city. Strong gun laws. All the gun laws don't work if the wrong people have guns.

I had a friend who went to Temple in the early '80s. They were told never, ever to go further north than Diamond Street. It was like crossing a DMZ.

Narcotics was trying to serve a warrant, so this was drug related. Liberals don't want a wall to stop the illegals or drugs coming across the border. Liberals want gun control so druggies and thugs will always be armed but not you. Blacks don't want the po-lice in their neighborhood, no matter what happens. It's always Trump's fault. Everybody in prison is innocent. All of these cities going to H-ll are run by Democrats pocketing federal funds instead of rebuilding ghettos. What is LE to do ? Thanks to Obola, they are disrespected every way possible. Where is their union ? I don't care what these people do to themselves, but no officer should leave home every day not knowing if they will get to see their families again. Cookies for cops. Take some.

This week, the American Civil Liberties Union raged against a civil rights policy that has already been law for decades. It would be funny, except it misleads people who trust organizations like the ACLU for accurate information. That is wrong. On Tuesday the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced a straightforward proposed regulation that should be noncontroversial. This regulation simply clarifies that, when religious employers contract with the federal government, they retain the right to hire employees who support their religious missions—just as they do for all other hires under the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964. For more than 50 years,

What in God's name is an "inverted Treasury yield"? Yields on two-year and 10-year Treasury notes inverted early Wednesday, a market phenomenon that shows investors want more in return for short-term government bonds than they are for long-term bonds.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, in December 2018, said, "I am a gaffe machine." File that under the category of truer words have seldom been spoken. President Donald Trump benefited in the 2016 presidential contest because the unfavorable numbers of his opponent, Hillary Clinton, matched or exceeded Trump's own unfavorable numbers. This time, in his bid for reelection, Trump's opponent could be Biden -- at this early date, still the front-runner for his party's nomination. Trump, of course, has been harshly attacked by Democrats, the media and even some Republicans for misstatements, exaggerations

It’s not that they hold it against Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, but they fear the rest of the country may not be ready for a 37-year-old, married, openly gay man to sit in the White House, so they are reluctant to help him win the party’s presidential nomination. “Pete Buttigieg is interesting to me, but, honestly, he is probably not electable, and the last thing I want is Donald Trump in office,” said David Cline. “I do believe his sexuality is an issue for folks, which is too bad.

When it was first reported that pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein had died in a maximum-security prison, supposedly by suicide, the Internet was immediately ablaze with conspiracy theories. That's not so strange considering that several people had warned beforehand that Epstein had dirt on many important people; people who would be well served by his untimely death. An autopsy has now found, the Washington Post reports, that Epstein "sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings." And that's rather... interesting...

Proving once again they're absolutely clueless on firearms, nearly 200 House Democrats have indicated their support for legislation banning all semi-automatic firearms nationwide. They aren't just talking about the dreaded AR-15 here. Every new Glock, outlawed. My dad's old .22 Browning target pistol, which my 13-year-old insists I leave to him in my will, would be among the last of its kind. And -- try not to think about this too hard, or you'll cry -- the Colt 1911 .45, perhaps the American sidearm, would be no more. We'll get revolvers and bolt-action rifles and that's about it.
