Gov. Wolf vetoes no-tax-hike Republican budget for third time

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf said Tuesday he will use his line-item veto power on the $30.8 billion, no-tax-hike budget passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature. So the big question today is why didn't Wolf do this on July 1 when the first budget was sent to him by the Legislature? The answer: Wolf wants to spend billions more on liberal programs and raise taxes on working Pennsylvania families so he held the budget hostage for the past six months in the hopes of forcing the Legislature to raise taxes.

His ploy didn't work. So here we are - six months into the new fiscal year - without a budget, thanks to Wolf and his far-left staffers who want to spend more than the state takes in and pay back the labor unions that put Wolf into office last year.

There's a great quote in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review from Republican House Majority Leader Dave Reed, putting the Wolf budget fiasco in perspective: “While I am appreciative that the Governor will finally release some of his hostages and send some of the monies out to our schools and human service programs; it is disturbing to realize that his partial veto is reflective of his demand for a higher sales or income tax to spend even more money."

Obama's 'hope and change' now is hopelessness and stagnation

From a new column by Antony Davies & James R. Harrigan recapping the failed Obama years:

A sober reflection of the past seven years shows that, across the country, change largely has been for the worse and hope is in pretty short supply.
The hope disappeared down the hole of governmental regulation.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' becomes fastest movie to reach $1 billion


In less than two weeks, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has become the second highest-grossing film of 2015 and the 15th highest-grossing film of all time.

I saw 'The Force Awakens' over the weekend. It was good but not as good as I expected considering the resources J.J. Abrams had at his disposal. It's much better than the three George Lucas prequels but I still think "A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back" were better.

REP: JOE PITTS: Social media is a new front in war on terror

Terrorism, and Islamic terrorism in particular, has continually proven to be a global threat. In regions as far apart and as diverse as Beirut, Paris, and San Bernadino, ISIS and their sympathizers have used the technology and weaponry of civilization against civilization.

In London, a man stabbed a stranger on the Tube, shouting “this is for Syria!” The bloody aftermath was caught on a harrowing cell phone video that is now circulating on the internet.

Massive terrorism-related arrests have taken place in Brussels, Australia, and Geneva. A soccer game in Germany was evacuated due to credible terrorist threats.

According to the CIA, ISIS terrorists are present in at least 30 countries. The FBI has over 900 open ISIS-related investigations in the United States and has made some 50 arrests just in 2015. Militant groups in 20 different countries, including the notorious kidnappers Boko Haram of Nigeria, have sworn allegiance to ISIS.

Terrorists in Brussels have been proven to have made contact with ISIS leaders in Syria. The San Bernadino murderers appear to have met on an online dating website, and posted pro-ISIS propaganda on Facebook just before conducting their attacks. Terrorist plots to kill police officers in Boston and behead a blogger in Texas have been discovered by means of their social media footprint. A total of some 300 Twitter accounts based in the United States have been found to be run by terrorists.

According to research done at George Washington University, terrorist suspects recruited by ISIS in the United States tend to be younger than previous terrorist suspects, and tend to be converts to Islam. Teenage boys and girls in Mississippi, Minneapolis, and the Denver suburbs have been arrested in connection with ISIS.

In a chilling development just this week, the FBI arrested 19-year old Jabil Ameer Aziz from Harrisburg for aiding ISIS propaganda on 57 different Twitter accounts.

Part of how terrorism has gone global has been through advances in communications technology. Social media have opened up new channels of communication around our world, allowing anyone anywhere to speak to virtually anyone else anywhere almost immediately. As with any technology, this new capability can be used either for good or for evil.

While many people have used these new tools for good, terrorist groups like ISIS have been highly effective in recruiting sympathizers and cooperators around the world through social media. It is even possible that they have used online video games — through PlayStation — to communicate encrypted information. This encryption problem poses a serious challenge to our counterterrorism efforts, and Congress will have the responsibility of solving it.

No one publicizes ISIS’ murders as widely as ISIS does, posting on the internet videos of beheadings, burnings, and shootings of their enemies. ISIS is so evil that it actively recruits new terrorists all over the world using these internet videos.

We are an open society, and rightly proud to be one. But while terrorists hate the freedom of the West, they exploit it against us.

The task before our leaders is to keep our people safe, but we must not give up our freedom in order to protect it. We must hold fast to the inalienable rights and liberties of which the American people have always been jealous, and of which our enemies are so contemptuous.

These concerns are why this week, the House passed legislation that would require the President to report to
Congress on the extent of terrorist use of social media, as well as on a strategy to enhance the exchange of information between the government and social media companies so as to disrupt the terrorist recruitment networks.

The House also passed legislation introduced by Democratic Rep. Norma Torres to require the Secretary of Homeland Security to develop and maintain an assessment of maritime cybersecurity. This bill would also require the sharing of information between Maritime Security Advisory Committees.

Earlier this year, the House passed cybersecurity reform legislation, with President Obama’s support, that would require the Director of National Intelligence to create procedures for sharing imminent threat information with the private sector, and allowing private sector entities to share cyber threat indicators or defensive measures against cyber threats.

These bills constitute neither the beginning nor the end of our efforts to combat terrorists, but they are the next step. We will continue to fight ISIS and any other threat to our safety until they are no more — whether in theater or on the Internet.

U.S. Rep. Joe Pitts is a Republican who represents Pennsylvania’s 16th Congressional District in parts of Chester, Berks and Lancaster counties.

The left's war on religion

A must-read new column by Salena Zito:
 American leftists have made a religion out of government; they were angry, not because people called for appeals to a higher being, but because it was to God — not government.

The left does not want Americans to lift up victims in prayer because it wants us to seek solace in public policy. Left-wing politicians think religion is an opiate for the masses, and they want to take the rabble off that drug.

It was no accident that this outburst of liberal anger included both guns and religion. The modern urban-coastal left believes guns and religion are totems for fools.

Even many liberal religious leaders have use for prayer only when it does not get in the way of liberal secular political aims.

The Death of the American Middle Class

Interesting that the death of the American Middle Class should happen on Barack Obama's watch. His seven years of failed economic policies may have been the final nail in the coffin:
After more than four decades of serving as the nation’s economic
majority, the American middle class is now matched in number by those in
the economic tiers above and below it. In early 2015, 120.8 million
adults were in middle-income households, compared with 121.3 million in
lower- and upper-income households combined, a demographic shift that
could signal a tipping point, according to a new Pew Research Center
analysis of government data.

The Charge of the Light Brigade

Alfred, Lord Tennyson's famous poem, "The Charge of the Light Brigade," was published in England on December 9, 1854 - 161 years ago today. The actual Charge of the Light Brigade took place on October 25, 1854, during the Crimean War when an English brigade of 600 men charged heavily-fortified Russian army positions in the Battle of Balaclava in what is present-day Ukraine. The British were armed with lances and sabres and were cut to pieces by Russian artillery.

The "Charge of the Light Brigade" took place on Oct. 25, 1854, during the Crimean War as an English brigade of 600 men charged the Russian army in the Battle of Balaclava (Ukraine),  suffering heavy losses. The event is memorialized by this famous poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson - See more at: http://tonyphyrillas.blogspot.com/search?q=Brigade#sthash.O4EPb0FJ.dpuf

The Charge of the Light Brigade

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
   Rode the six hundred.
“Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!” he said.
Into the valley of Death
   Rode the six hundred.

“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismayed?
Not though the soldier knew
   Someone had blundered.
   Theirs not to make reply,
   Theirs not to reason why,
   Theirs but to do and die.
   Into the valley of Death
   Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
   Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of hell
   Rode the six hundred.

Flashed all their sabres bare,
Flashed as they turned in air
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
   All the world wondered.
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right through the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reeled from the sabre stroke
   Shattered and sundered.
Then they rode back, but not
   Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
   Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell.
They that had fought so well
Came through the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of hell,
All that was left of them,
   Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
   All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Light Brigade,
   Noble six hundred!

Can Barack Obama become any more pathetic?
