Don’t Allow County Council to Usurp Local Law Enforcement Authority

Our District 2 County Councilwoman, Cindy Kirk, and our Allegheny County Councilman at-Large, Sam DeMarco, are requesting our help to stop the formation of arbitrary “civilian” law enforcement review boards.

Please read the letter from Councilwoman Kirk and respond accordingly if this matter is of concern to you.

We need your help:  Certain Members of Allegheny County Council want to
take control of your police department!
On July 10th, Allegheny County Council rammed legislation through to begin the process of creating a countywide civilian police review board over local municipal police departments.

A motion passed in Allegheny County Council 8-6, giving certain Council members the ability to conduct up to four public hearings where they can gather public input on the formation of a countywide civilian police review board over local police departments.  Supporters of this backdoor usurpation of local authority were careful to use the term “civilian” rather than …

Toomey’s name improperly used for comments. How about yours?

James V. Grimaldi (Wall Street Journal)

July 11, 2018 9:27 a.m. ET

The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission proposed an overhaul of the agency’s online comment system after millions of fake comments were posted about a recent FCC rule change.

The FCC’s Ajit Pai said in a letter to two senators that he was proposing “to rebuild and re-engineer” the commission’s electronic comment system “to institute appropriate safeguards against abusive conduct.”

Re-assessment of testing in Pennsylvania. Yes, let’s do it!

An honest, thorough re-examination of our Pennsylvania assessment and accountability system is needed if “fixing our broken education system” in Pennsylvania is truly a priority.  Query as to whether or not the SAT is an appropriate assessment of mastery of subject matter; nevertheless transparent, concerted evaluation of our academic accountability measures is well worth the efforts of the Senate Education Committee.  The conversation should not be limited to testing, effectiveness of data and professional accountability ...

As we understand from the previous essay, communists anticipated revolution but were not determined to provoke violence in an effort to overturn the established order; the fascists, however, were.

Fascists were as left-leaning in their ideology as the communists so how did they come to be known as “Right Wing?”  The term “Right Wing” begins to appear in the late 18th century during the French Revolution relating to the position one took when sitting in Parliament; conservative royalists sitting to the right of the President illustrated their degree of allegiance to the monarchy versus disgruntlement revolutionaries …

We must discuss how we, as Americans, define the role of government
