Would you like some brains in your beer?

Philadelphia’s Dock Street Brewing Company will release a zombie-friendly brew in honor of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

The American Pale Stout, which has been dubbed Dock Street Walker, is made with malted wheat, oats, flaked barley, cranberry and an extra-special ingredient – smoked goat brains.

“The pre-sparge-brain-addition provides this beer with intriguing, subtle smoke notes,” the brewery says in a press release. “In true walker fashion, don’t be surprised if its head doesn’t hang around forever.

The beverage, which Dock Street Brewing Company is calling “quite possibly the smartest beer you’ll ever drink,” will be released on Sunday before “The Walking Dead” season finale.

This isn’t the first time a brewery has crafted a beer in honor of an AMC drama.

Marble Brewery in Albuquerque, N.M., made two “Breaking Bad” brews in honor of the series’ finale in August. However, those didn’t contain any unusual show-related ingredients.

10 Philadelphia Union Goons Indicted On Extortion, Assault And Arson Charges

10 In Union ‘Goon Squads’ Indicted For Violence, Arson In Philadelphia – The Foundry

Ten members of a Philadelphia ironworkers union are charged with conspiring to commit extortion, arson, destruction of property, and assault to force construction contractors to hire union workers, according to the FBI.

.

.
The FBI this week said the members of Ironworkers Local 401 collaborated with allies who sought out construction sites that employed non-union workers, threatening personnel there with “violence, destruction of property or other criminal acts unless union members were hired.”

So-called “goon squads,” including a group calling itself “The Helpful Union Guys” (or THUGs) went into action. Some “set a crane on fire and cut steel beams and colts” at a Quaker Meeting House construction site in 2012, according to the indictment. In 2010, union members assaulted non-union workers with baseball bats at another construction site.

In 2013, they “threatened the contractor of an apartment complex… if he did not hire Local 401 members,” the indictment said. As a result, “the contractor relinquished his profits and turned the job over to a union-affiliated contractor.”

Experts say such incidents go both underreported and unprosecuted. National Institute for Labor Relations Research has documented over 9,000 reports of union violence since 1975, of which “barely 3 percent… have led to an arrest and conviction.”

The institute noted that in many cases, police and company reports “indicate that the actual number of assaults, threats and property damage is tens of times greater than the news reports collected” document.

In the Ironworkers Local 401 case, four of the 10 defendants face minimum prison sentences of 35 years if convicted of all charges.

138 Educators Implicated In Philadelphia Cheating Scandal

Pa. Attorney General Is Probing Cheating At Phila. Schools – Philadelphia Inquirer

The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office is conducting a criminal investigation into allegations of widespread cheating among teachers and principals in Philadelphia schools, according to people with knowledge of the inquiry.

.

.
State prosecutors acted after receiving information from the state Inspector General’s Office, which launched its own investigation in 2011.

Bruce Beemer, chief of the Criminal Prosecution Section of the Attorney General’s Office, declined to comment Friday.

A spokesman for the School District also declined to comment.

News of the criminal probe, which one source said involves a grand jury, comes as 138 educators have been implicated in a citywide scandal. The revelation comes a day after three Philadelphia school principals were fired for alleged cheating. The School Reform Commission removed the principals as of Friday, and officials said further investigation and more discipline was to come.

Allegations of cheating in Philadelphia schools first surfaced in 2011, involving 53 district schools and three city charter schools.

In recent years, testing scandals have erupted in Washington; Cincinnati; Baltimore; Detroit; Houston; Los Angeles; and Newark, N.J., among other cities.

Since 2009, cheating has been confirmed in 37 states and Washington.

The Philadelphia scandal has drawn comparisons to one in Atlanta, where last year a Fulton County grand jury indicted 35 educators, including Beverly Hall, a former school superintendent. The allegations touched at least 44 schools.

Administrators, principals, and teachers were charged with racketeering, conspiracy, making false statements, and related offenses.

Six former Atlanta principals and teachers recently pleaded guilty to cheating offenses, bringing the number of pleas to 17. Prosecutors say Hall was a leader, driven by bonuses and federal funding tied to better test results.

The testing scandals have fueled a debate over using high-stakes classroom tests to judge the performance of teachers, administrators, and schools. In Atlanta, some teachers who cheated blamed extreme pressure to meet district goals.

Robert McGrogan, head of the union that represents Philadelphia school administrators, said he does not condone cheating under any circumstances. But, he said, during the years of the alleged cheating, the district was a pressure cooker.

“Do you know how many of us sat in meetings with our bosses and were told, ‘You have to bring your scores up’?” said McGrogan, a principal at the time. “There was no how-to book given to us.”

Supervisors warned principals that if they did not meet state standards, “you’re not going to be a principal next year,” McGrogan said.

On Friday, Mayor Nutter said that while the scandal reveals “immoral behavior,” the district had made legitimate improvement in recent years.

“It does not take away the gains that have been made,” he said.

On Thursday, the SRC fired Deidre Bennett, Michelle Burns, and Marla Travis-Curtis.

Bennett was principal of Cassidy Elementary, but had been a teacher leader at Huey Elementary. Burns, the principal of Kensington Urban Education Academy, had been principal at Tilden Middle. Travis-Curtis was principal of Lamberton Elementary.

Efforts to reach the three were unsuccessful.

City school officials said Friday that their own investigations into allegations of cheating were continuing.

In 2011, The Inquirer reported that dramatic test-score gains that began in 2009 appeared to have been achieved partly through cheating at Roosevelt Middle School in East Germantown.

The 53 schools that have been investigated for possible cheating – one in five of all district schools – come from every part of the city and span every grade level. Some had been labeled “Vanguards,” a Philadelphia School District designation for its highest-achieving schools, and one that gave them flexibility in curriculum and budgeting.

A state-commissioned analysis of 2009 exams identified suspicious patterns of erasures at schools across Pennsylvania. Later, staffers and parents at Cayuga Elementary in Hunting Park told The Inquirer of cheating there.

The state Inspector General’s Office later conducted investigations at 11 district schools – the “Tier I” schools, or those with the most serious allegations. The district investigated 19 Tier II schools and has yet to probe 22 Tier III schools.

Sixty-nine current and former employees were implicated in the highest-level, most serious investigations, School District attorney Jessica Diaz said, but discipline against them cannot proceed until the state releases its investigations to the district.

Of the 19 Tier II schools probed, three were cleared, no conclusion could be drawn at three, and cheating was found at 13.

Forty current district employees and 29 former employees were implicated. Twenty were administrators, 46 were teachers, and three worked in other capacities, including as counselors and a police officer.

Obama playing games with government shut down

The Lonely Conservative has it right

Petty President Obama and his administration are shutting down anything and everything they can think of to make the government slimdown as visible and painful as possible to the public.

Americans who are traveling overseas and want to visit the cemeteries at Normandy will be turned away. They really have it in for WWII veterans.

But that’s not all. A Philadelphia tavern the founding fathers used to frequent, that is owned by the federal government but operated by a private contractor, has been ordered to close its doors. It stayed open during the last shutdown, and had to cancel hundreds of reservations. Why shut down an operation that makes money?

They even tried to close down Mt. Vernon, which is privately owned and has been for 150 years! They put barricades up in the parking lots and at the area where tour buses turn around.

The Philadelphia tavern isn’t the only place that stayed open during the last shutdown. Many memorials and monuments stayed open to the public back then. It appears that closing these attractions may be costing more than it would have to keep them open.

It is not clear how much taxpayer money the Obama administration is paying to ensure that government sites and services remain shuttered to taxpayers. Popular Washington spots such as the World War II memorial are now guarded by more security personnel than they are during normal operations, while federal employees have been dispatched to put up barricades on capital bike paths and other public grounds that are not usually patrolled at all.

Obama’s team has also been caught deliberately punishing World War II veterans trying to visit their own memorial, with one administration official telling a veteran’s supporter, “It’s a government shutdown, what do you expect?”

The American people are currently paying for eight mounted cops to keep people out of the World War II memorial. (Read More)

What do we expect? We expect a president that doesn’t act like a spoiled child not getting his way. But that’s what we get with this one. He’s a petty and vindictive little man.

It is all about blaming Republicans, and reaping political gains, and nothing more. Petty indeed!

 

Trayvon Martins mother lies about stand your ground laws

Here we go, the Left AGAIN, lying to achieve a political goal. In this case the goal being to outlaw self-defense. I know, I know, I must not attack this woman, or even question her. She lost her son, and that gives her Moral Authority that cannot be challenged right? WRONG! This woman is LYING, and she knows damn well she is lying. And she is lying to curtail my rights to protect myself and those precious to me! Sorry, but her absolute moral authority card expired when she started pissing on my human rights!

Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder ignores Supreme Court ruling on Voting Rights Act

Here goes Team Obama again, snubbing their nose at the rule of law, and the highest court in America

Via Red Alert:

In response to the Supreme Court’s recent decision that states are innocent of institutional racism until proven guilty, Attorney General Eric Holder is arguing that Texas’ “history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities” should make its voting laws subject to the Department of Justice’s oversight indefinitely.

While speaking before the National Urban League in Philadelphia on Thursday, Holder said his agency would ask a federal judge to require Texas to submit all its voting laws to the DOJ for review before they can be legally enacted because the state has a supposed history of discrimination and racism.

“And today I am announcing that the Justice Department will ask a federal court in Texas to subject the State of Texas to a pre-clearance regime similar to the one required by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act,” Holder said at the organization’s annual conference.

The Attorney General cited “evidence of intentional racial discrimination” found following the case Texas v. Holder, in addition to a ”history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities.” He continued, saying the state would need to acquire “pre-approval” from either the Department of Justice or a federal court before implementing any future changes in voting laws.

I expect there is a good chance Governor Perry will ignore the Attorney General. Don’t mess with Texas!

 

It depends what you mean by “impartial”

Eric Holder is the Attorney general, and the DOJ is investigating George Zimmerman for federal charges, so, why is Holder speaking at a rally WITH TRrayvon Martin’s mom?

(AP) — The mother of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will speak in Philadelphia at the National Urban League’s annual conference, which will focus on civil rights, voting rights and job creation.

The four-day event, which begins Wednesday, comes less than a month after the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act and not long after the man who shot Martin was acquitted in the racially charged case.

The league is one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations. The conference, titled “Redeem the Dream: Jobs Rebuild America,” is expected to attract about 6,000 people and also focus on strengthening economic opportunities for African-Americans, CEO Marc Morial said.

Mind boggling

 

How many reporters did Team Obama spy on?

CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson has had “issues” since digging into Fast and Furious

In an appearance on 1210 AM WPHT in Philadelphia on Tuesday, CBS investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, whose investigative work on the Obama White House has frequently provoked hot reactions, revealed the she had discovered evidence that her computer system may have been tampered with.

Attkisson explained her situation to host Chris Stigall and indicated more details would be forthcoming.

“I’m not ready to fully speak publicly about some things that have affected me because I’m trying to be methodical and careful about what I say,” Attkisson said. “But there has been an issue in my house and there has been an issue with my computer that’s gone on for quite a long time that we’re looking into.”

Senators call for hearings on abortion practices

Couple defends themselves with AR-15, media silence is deafening

Where is the news media? Where is David Frum and his smart ass tweets mocking those who defend themselves with guns?? Oh that’s right, they ignore these inconvenient stories. Matt at Conservative Hideout does not though

The much maligned AR-15 was used to defend a couple from a home invader.  The media silence is deafening.  Mr Conservative has the details…

A couple whose names are being withheld by police were outside of their apartment on Friday, when Jasper Brisbon, who they said appeared to be on drugs, walked up and began staring at them. He did this for several minutes as the couple grew increasingly uncomfortable. Eventually, they decided to go inside of their apartment to get away from Brisbon, but he followed them.

At that point, the man grabbed his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and told Jasper Brisbon to leave. Brisbon refused his request and started moving towards him in a threatening manner. That’s when the man shot him in the chest and sent Brisbon to the ground. Afterwards, the man called police.

Just another of those stories the Left insists never happen

 

Something you might not know about Abortionist Kermit Gosnell

James Taranto dos some digging into the past of Gosnell

It was called the Mother’s Day Massacre. A young Philadelphia doctor “offered to perform abortions on 15 poor women who were bused to his clinic from Chicago on Mother’s Day 1972, in their second trimester of pregnancy.” The women didn’t know that the doctor “planned to use an experimental device called a ‘super coil’ developed by a California man named Harvey Karman.”

A colleague of Karman’s Philadelphia collaborator described the contraption as “basically plastic razors that were formed into a ball. . . . They were coated into a gel, so that they would remain closed. These would be inserted into the woman’s uterus. And after several hours of body temperature, . . . the gel would melt and these . . . things would spring open, supposedly cutting up the fetus.”

Nine of the 15 Chicago women suffered serious complications. One of them needed a hysterectomy. The following year, the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade. It would be 37 more years before the Philadelphia doctor who carried out the Mother’s Day Massacre would go out of business. His name is Kermit Gosnell.

Your Statist of the day is…………

Philadelphia Premier Mayor Michael Nutter who is not down with that whole freedom of the press thing

The Philadelphia Human Relations Commission has launched an investigation at the request of the mayor after a well-known magazine published an essay that explored perspectives of white citizens on the issue of race relations.

Mayor Michael Nutter called on the commission to consider rebuking both Philadelphia Magazine and writer Bob Huber noting that “the First Amendment, like other constitutional rights, is not an unfettered right.”

Nutter’s fury was directed at a cover story titled, “Being White in Philly.” The story included conversations with mostly anonymous residents who detailed race relations in the City of Brotherly Love.

Go read it all. This is a great example of Liberal hypocrisy. Liberals love to say we need an “open discussion” on race in America. A discussion where no one holds anything back. That is what they say. What they mean is we need to have Liberals lecture us on how racism is inherent in America, and that racial injustice is rampant, and anyone holding a differing view is welcome to shut up! Obviously Mayor Nutter is eager to unleash his thought police on to those who do not know when to shut up.

Philadelphia-Area Businesses Fight Violent Union Thugs

It Gets Better: Philadelphia-Area Businesses Fight Union Bullies – Washington Free Beacon

Several Philadelphia labor groups allegedly used feces, urine, spit, and fire to persuade businesses to hire union labor and area businesses are fighting back.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Monday ordered members of the International Board of Teamsters Local 107, Pennsylvania’s self-described “most powerful labor organization,” to stop assaulting and spitting on employees, vandalizing vehicles, and obstructing business operations at the Eureka Stone Quarry, Inc.

Jim Morrissey III, whose grandfather started the cement mixing and construction service company, launched the suit after striking drivers dragged a company mechanic from his truck after obstructing the road with nails – an incident captured on surveillance tape.

“He was scared to death, surrounded by six to eight guys he thought were his friends,” Morrissey said.

Local 107 secretary-treasurer Shawn Dougherty downplayed the NLRB ruling.

“This fella’s so litigious that anything that’s said or done with this particular labor dispute is exaggerated,” Dougherty said. “We normally don’t comment on the NLRB decisions.”

Morrissey says he is not anti-labor. He decided to appeal to federal authorities after concluding that local officials would turn a blind eye to the issues plaguing his business.

“I had no choice but the NLRB: They said they were going to put me out of business and they’ve put a tremendous amount of pressure on other groups to not hire us,” he said. “The unions in Philly run the show; it’s a big joke with the police and the politicians – they just look the other way.”

Leo Knepper, executive director at the Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania, said the legacy of union dominance in the “Keystone State” has created an aura of invincibility among labor groups.

“When anything threatens [union] interests, they react violently,” he said. “Unions have such a strong influence in local politics that it gives them carte blanche to do whatever they want because no one is willing to enforce the law against these guys.”

Morrissey says union intimidation tactics are no longer effective with the availability and affordability of surveillance.

“When you have them on tape, they can’t deny it,” he said. “Technology changes everything and the unions aren’t savvy enough to get that.”

No company has employed technology as devastatingly as Post Brothers Apartments, a real estate firm engaged in a drawn out and oftentimes violent campaign by the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council over a $38 million apartment development at the abandoned Goldtex shoe factory.

Post Brothers awarded half of its construction contracts to union shops. The council demanded 100 percent of the contracts and began picketing and vandalizing the site when construction began in 2012.

The company launched a public campaign of its own after workers discovered feces and urine scattered at the site, oil dumped on its parking lot, and asbestos installed in walls, according to Post Brothers CEO Michael Pestronk.

The company has posted YouTube videos of union leaders assaulting security guards, shared photos of smashed windshields on a public Google Docs account, and argued its case against the unions through its website, PhillyBully.com.

“Our employees feared for their lives, so we got the equipment for personal protection,” Pestronk said. “It wasn’t some masterful calculation: changing political institutions [or] buying politicians costs millions, posting videos to YouTube is cheap and it gets you public attention.”

The Trades Council did not return calls for comment.

The website is already paying dividends. A union member allegedly assaulted Post Brothers employees Chris Gardner and Matt Hunt in December with a crowbar after they attempted to park their car near the work site. Gardner was arrested for assault when he subdued his attacker, who was not charged in the incident.

The police dropped the charges on Tuesday thanks in part to the company’s photo and video evidence, “but mostly because our attorney threatened to sue the city, the police, and the [district attorney],” Pestronk said.

The young real estate executive said he hopes PhillyBully.com “sets an example” on how to combat union intimidation.

“They’re getting desperate so it appears [violence] has been ramping up,” he said. “The mainstream media is not calling attention to it, so it really helps to use YouTube to subvert them and make them pay attention.”

New media is not the only tactic businesses are using to curb union violence. The eastern Pennsylvania chapter of the Association of Builders and Contractors, which represents open shop construction companies, is now offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the union members suspected of burning down a Quaker meetinghouse construction site a few days before Christmas.

“We’ve seen a steady pattern of violence on open shop projects in Philadelphia—anytime open house contractors come in there’s retaliation,” said chapter president Mary Tebeau. “We’re afraid that business owners and developers will bypass this area, so to combat that we came up with a reward to punish those responsible for the bombing.”

A Philadelphia Police Department spokeswoman told the Washington Free Beacon that there have been no arrests in connection to the incident.

Robert Reeves, president of E. Allen Reeves, Inc., the firm building the Quaker meetinghouse, echoed Tebeau’s concerns, adding that bounties will not do much to deter future violence without institutional change.

“I think there’s a resurgence in violence because unions are contemplating their loss of market share,” he said. “I wish that leaders in the Philadelphia region would speak up against violence. They don’t tolerate it in schools, but they look the other way when it’s their supporters.”

Some politicians at the state level are looking to diminish the amount of influence wielded by unions at the state and local level through labor reforms, including right-to-work legislation introduced earlier this year.

“There are a lot of unfair policies enacted on behalf of Big Labor back when it had clout, but the demographics spell trouble for unions,” central Pennsylvania state Rep. Stephen Bloom said. “The Philadelphia area is still a bastion for union influence, but it’s waning there as it is across the state and the balance of power is shifting and inevitably we’ll get to the point where we’ll adopt labor reforms necessary for economic survival.”

Biden to go on gun control tour?

Well, someone get a Gaffe-O-Meter ready, but I find this interesting because this the rhetoric Biden is talking

Vice President Biden delivered a message for rural America: He’s coming to talk about gun violence.

“I’m coming, I’m coming,” Biden said here after saying he’d read a skeptical comment in the local newspaper about the White House outreach to rural areas. “The one thing I want to make clear is this is, this message of rational gun safety is a message that will be embraced by rural communities as well as urban communities simply because it makes sense. But we cannot wait. The still voices of those children require us, requires us to speak now.”

And this is what the American people think about theeffectiveness of gun control laws

Via Breitbart:

In a Pew Research Poll listing 21 things the public believes should be government priorities for 2013, passing more gun laws is number 18 out of 21.

The majority of Americans simply do not see gun control as a pressing concern problem like President Obama and the Democrats do.

Instead, the American people are worried about the economy (first on the list), jobs (second), the deficit (third), and terrorism (fourth).

So, maybe it is not about the will of the people, but the fetish for control that Democrats have. Speaking of control, guess which issue is dead last on the list. Go on, guess, here is a hint, Al Gore would be very upset.

Something stinks about these numbers

Arlen Specter RIP

I got the news via Stacy McCain, who is not exactly broken up over Specter’s demise at 82

One should never speak ill of the dead, and therefore I will merely note that there is one less RINO in the world.

By contrast, Charlie Crist is still alive, so there’s probably no harm in saying that if Charlie got hit by a bus tomorrow, I’d be doing cartwheels.

Ah yes Charlie Crist, RINO, bottom-feeding scumbag, all around lousy excuse for a human being. 

 

No, Conservatives do not hate government, we hate too much government

Despite what the Left says, Conservatives do not hate government, nor do we wish to see no government. We simply hold to the basic principle that once government gets too big, it begins to fail, and the larger it grows the larger the failures, and the deeper the erosions upon out liberties. And yes, this holds true for not just the federal government, it applies to state as well as local governments.

Zion’s Trumpet has a great example of a local government displaying this rule

It is essential to the liberal agenda that people believe there would be terrible suffering without government coercion. Therefore, it shouldn’t surprise anyone when that very coercion is used to repress voluntary charity:

A Pennsylvania woman who offers free lunch every day to low-income children in her neighborhood faces a $600-a-day fine next summer if she continues because she did not clear the food giveaway with township officials.

Angela Prattis donates her time to distribute the meals — supplied by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia — and adheres to strict paperwork, like filling out weekly reports and being visited bi-weekly from a state worker, MyFoxPhilly.com reports.

That’s not good enough for the bureaurats, who don’t cotton to competition:

Chester Township, which has a per capita income of $19,000 a year, says Prattis lives in a residential zone, hence handing out food to children is not allowed. The township says she needs to go before a zoning board to ask for a variance, which would cost her up to $1,000 in administrative fees.

Yet another case of unintended consequences resulting from a stupid, useless law. The government really has no business telling one citizen whether or not they can pass out food do they? Especially in this case where the woman is bending over backwards to accommodate the bureaucracy.

INDIANAPOLIS — Dwyane Wade scored 41 points, LeBron James added 28 and Miami finished off the Indiana Pacers, sending the Heat back to the Eastern Conference finals with a 105-93 victory in Game 6 on Thursday night.

Miami wrapped up the best-of-7 series and will face either Boston or Philadelphia in the next round starting Monday. Nothing less than an NBA title will make for a satisfying summer in South Beach.

 

Sixers top Celtics 82-75 even series at 3-3

Can Philly win in Boston and make the East finals?

I will say, no, it will be an ugly game 7, and the Celtic experience will find a way, and then the Celts can get buried by the Heat. And let us hope that series is less offensively challenged than this stinker has been. Good grief, these Eastern Conference Playoffs have set the NBA back 50 years! Simply unwatchable!

BOSTON — Brandon Bass scored 18 of his postseason career-high 27 points in the third quarter on Monday night as the Boston Celtics pulled away from the Philadelphia 76ers to win 101-85 and take a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Kevin Garnett added 20 points and Rajon Rondo had 13 points and 14 assists for the Celtics, who can advance to the East finals with a victory in Philadelphia in Game 6 on Wednesday. The Sixers would need a win there to force the series back to Boston for a decisive seventh game Saturday.
