Harrisburg, PA – A grand jury will convene tomorrow to investigate circumstances surrounding the organization of a voter raffle held on election day at the polling places in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
PennLive.com originally reported an emergency injunction issued Tuesday November 7, 2017, that ordered sheriff’s deputies to visit all Harrisburg polling stations to collect raffle tickets from campaign workers.
Common Pleas Judge Scott Evans said in his ruling the ticket is “promoting of a particular race and suggestive of balloting.”
Legal issues have been expressed by various parties, including local developer Jeremy Hunter, and Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse.
Initially Papenfuse suggested that the voter raffle was directly tied to a write-in campaign of a candidate who was challenging his uncontested position on the ballot.
From the other side, it’s been alleged that Papenfuse was engaging in voter suppression on election day and is attempting to blackball the names of those who were campaigning for Martin-Roberts. Defense Attorneys may argue that the raffle is fully legal based on examples of similar voter rallies in California and elsewhere.
Harrisburg, PA – Two young ladies were violently murdered in Uptown Harrisburg, found dead with gunshot wounds. No motive or suspect has been identified. It’s been suggested that one of the female victims was pregnant.
When a reporter asked if the coroner could answer whether 16-year-old Kaliah Dearing was pregnant, Coroner Graham Hetrick was vague in his response after a brief pause. “I could, but I’m not,” he said. This prompted a woman, identified as Kaliah’s mother, to be overwhelmed with grief.
Dauphin Coroner Graham Heteick says overall it’s not a gun problem, it’s not an opioid problem, but it’s a problem of our shifting culture where we no longer value other lives in this society:
Since this incident, there have been multiple other shootings with injuries in Uptown Harrisburg, as well as shooting murders in Carlisle and York, Pennsylvania the same weekend.
Kids as young as 10 years old reportedly attempting armed robberies in York, PA.
Harrisburg, PA – After an early day trip to Canada to meet with Prime Minister Trudeau, President Trump visited Harrisburg on Wednesday (Oct. 11,2017) to discuss job creation through his new tax plan. Network host Sean Hannity was also in town to interview the President about his new plan for America.
Trump spoke in front of an audience of roughly 1,000 people, including lots of truckers, against a backdrop of big rigs at a local air plane hangar. Trump pitched a plan that would dramatically cut corporate tax rates from 35 percent to 20 percent, reduce the number of personal income tax brackets and boost the standard deduction.
The meeting also included 50-100 people invited through political and business circles, including David Black and members of CREDC.
Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse has been vocally outspoken against the President of the United States.
Is Papenfuse willfully resisting Trump? In thefollowing video, under the guise of a “grassroots” effort, Papenfuse inspired the anti-Trump anarchists who advocate for mob-rule:
The local developer/publisher bought the election of Papenfuse, Patty Kim, and Cornelius Johnson. He has already returned on his original investment through WCI, and has likely profited significantly from the so-called ‘pay-for-play’ scheme.
Hartzler uses his twitter account and media outlet ‘theBurg‘ to sow discord in America, and to indoctrinate the Harrisburg population by attempting to normalize leftist ideology.
Specifically, Hartzler influences the midtown Harrisburg yuppie crowd, who is 100% complacent in spreading extreme leftist ideology that creates a divide in our nation.
With no regard for credibility in his sources, on a daily basis the publisher retweets the most trending anti-Trump stories. These postings dictate the narratives that are purveyed by his close followers.
With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!
Much of the #FakeNews that is purveyed by the anti-Trump resistance is based in partisan opinion, and often the supporting facts in these stories have been debunked by various competing media outlets. Another tactic of these leftist; to develope a false narrative based on a typical daily interaction, then create liberal outrage and backlash.
It has also be suggested by Harrisburg insiders that “TheBurg and it’s 2nd command, Lawrance Binda has accepted the torch passed to it by #FakeNews alpha-dog; Pennlive. Binda consistently imposes his views for himself and his boss as “truth” and believes that Midtown is the center of the universe, where terms for everyone are dictated.”
This liberal media has perverted the mind of many Americans who now believe wholeheartedly in the anti-Trump news, and even network executives are willing to condone violence against Trump supporters:
The leftist controlled media has created a revolution of anarchist who wish to overthrow the government:
The Washington Post has also been a leading source in the leftist war on Trump.
However, more recently The Washington Post has displayed hints of a shifting political culture toward the ‘Make America Great Again’ movement, evident in this recent opinion piece predicting a win for Trump in 2020.
Overwhelming, public opinion stands against the disadvantages of globalization on America, and the MSM is showing signs of beginning to shift towards that pro-national sentiment. Will our local publisher follow suit with the patriotic shift in mainstream media culture? Will Papenfuse and company follow along?
Can't believe I finally got a good story in the @washingtonpost. It discusses the enthusiasm of "Trump" voters through campaign….
Within a week of President Trump suggesting to challenge media license, suddenly all the real news finally breaks with the MSM. Now it has been exposed that Hillary sold 20% of Our Uranium to Russia for their nuclear program. Hillary rigged the DNC. Hillary and democrats paid $10 million for the fake dossier report on Trump just before the election.
Harrisburg, PA – The Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority (HRA) & HBG Economic Development Director Jackie Parker is accused of bypassing the legal planning process in order to steal property in Allison Hill. Harrisburg officials violated the Urban Redevelopment Act of PA.
In a letter sent to Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority solicitor Stu Magdule, a Harrisburg resident presents the solid case against the illegal processes. It is detailed how Harrisburg City coordinated a subversion of private property rights and ownership, by using the Brownfield planning fund.
A private attorney counciling the citizen believes this could spark a grand jury investigation. The call is for the United States attorney general to intervene.
The letter was certified and sent to the following recipients:
Eric Papenfuse, Neil Grover, Bryan Davis, George Payne, Harrisburg City Council, Harrisburg Planning Commision, Dauphin County Commissioners, John DiSanto, Edward Marsico, Josh Shapiro, Jeffrey Sessions
City Council and the planning commission were sent certified copies of the letter because HRA kept them in the dark
Harrisburg, PA – “The announcement that Amazon would build a $5 billion facility supporting 50,000 jobs immediately lit up social media. Some local citizens and officials suggested that the sprawling, for-sale Harrisburg State Hospital grounds off Cameron Street would be a perfect fit.” – theBurg
However, varying political agendas almost squashed the deal before it gained traction. An essential component of the proposal requires cooperation between Harrisburg Mayor and the president of the Regional Chamber, among other opposing forces.
David Black, president of Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce and CREDC initially said: “Harrisburg is too small to put in a bid, but I do think there’s an opportunity to put in a bid with partners in York and Lancaster.”
Harrisburg City Councilman Westburn Majors expressed motivation to engage local government and private entities together in this process. “It is my hope that the administration can work with the county, the commonwealth, local business groups such as the Chamber, CREDC, etc., to determine if putting in an application is something that they would consider,” Majors said.
Brandon Flood and Beau Brown, who are both active in local & state politics, also engaged in the social media conversation. Brown expressed deep interest and insight into the potential Amazon deal, and began drafting preliminary concepts for a proposal in front of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
Meanwhile, Bruce P Weber (HBG City Director of Finance) who is very active on social media, often echos the perspective of Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse. The tone of Weber seemed to brush off the Amazon deal as a no-go.
Jennie Jenkins makes an excellent point that preparing and proposing to Amazon executives would serve as a terrific protocol for organizing forces in Harrisburg, and potentially bringing future investment to the region.
Beau Brown flips the script on Weber when he compares former Harrisburg Mayor Steve Reed to the short-falls of the current administration. The City of Harrisburg was transformed under Mayor Steve Reed. He had an unmatched love for Harrisburg and equal drive & determination to get results.
A bold proposal was made by Beau Brown, who offered free services to help draw 50,000 Amazon jobs to Harrisburg. Brown published an advertisement for his proposal stating that in fact Harrisburg can fulfill the requirements, and the posting was circulated around on social media.
Perhaps Harrisburg leaders and CREDC heard the calls of the community, because within 2 weeks, a new twist to the story was reported by Pennlive on 9/25/2017 when David Black says: “We’re pulling apart the RFP Amazon issued to see what we need.”
Harrisburg will partner with Lancaster, York, Cumberland & Lebanon counties to fulfill the metro requirement of the RFP.
Brown says that this is an opportunity to get face-time and build rapport for Harrisburg in front of one of the most powerful corporate owners in the world. Also, this experience will serve as excellent practice for pitching our region to investors. He also makes the point that proposing to Bezos would only be to the potential benefit of Harrisburg and the entire region. We should not pass up such an opportunity, as we are negotiating with an unpredictable entrepreneur, not a legislative body with strict rules to follow.
Beau Brown is uniquely qualified. He has a Reed-like drive and passion for the City of Harrisburg. Brown’s advocacy for the city is evident through the multiple published reports and editorials that have appeared in the Central Penn Business Journal, including this following article where Brown lays out a road map plan to land a deal such as the Amazon headquarters.
If Harrisburg and regional leaders are serious about this huge proposal, Brown’s negotiating and real estate experience should be utilized in making this deal.
Here, in a rare moment of clarity, Weber comes to his senses and recognizes the brilliance and potential in Brown’s proposal:
Klaus Eberwein, a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week, has been found dead in Miami. He was 50.
Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors.
According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head“. Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide.”
Eberwein, who had acknowledged his life was in danger, was a fierce critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in the Caribbean island, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years.
According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6% of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations. A further 9.6% ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8% – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.
“The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year.
The former director general of Haiti, who also served as an advisor to Haitian President Michel Martelly, was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti, Muncheez, and even has a pizza — the Klaus Special — named after him.
According to the Haiti Libre newspaper, Eberwein was said to be in “good spirits“, with plans for the future. His close friends and business partners are shocked by the idea he may have committed suicide.
“It’s really shocking,” said Muncheez’s owner Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”
Bailly said he last spoke to Eberwein two weeks ago and he was in good spirits. They were excited about future business plans and were working on opening a Muncheez restaurant in Sunrise, he said.
The Haitian government issued an official notice thanking Eberwein for his service and mourning his untimely death.
“The Directorate General of FAES presents its sympathies to the bereaved families, friends and collaborator that this mourning afflicts. The FAES flag will be flown at half-mast from Wednesday 12th to Tuesday 18th July 2017. May his soul rest in peace,” Charles Ernest Chatelier, director general.
Fowler has a lengthy criminal history, including her 4th DUI offense which occurred less than one year ago. She also was recently arrested again within the last month. She is currently campaigning for a public office as a Harrisburg School Board Director. The vote is on November 7.
Of these recent charges coming to light, Otto V. Banks mentions, “The larger question is whether or not Ms. Carrie Fowler was under court supervision at the time that she filed her petition? If so, she could possibly be brought up on charges for perjury. The most recent date of her last DUI arrest was 12/2016. Normally, a person would have to be on probation for at least a year.”
Sean M GuayThe ‘Resistance Movement’ emulates the tactics of black bloc, and has aligned with the terrorists of AntiFA. It is a threat to American freedom.
Such a shame that so-called citizens of Harrisburg would display pride in being aggressively disruptive.
Carrie FowlerIf you think the resistance movement is a threat to American freedoms, then you don’t understand how this country was built.
Sean M GuayThis country was not built by aligning with terrorists.
Carrie FowlerWhat do you think the monarchy thought of our founding fathers? You need a history lesson.
Robert BrandtSeriously Carrie Fowler, did you just compare our founding fathers to ANTIFA?? LMFAO!! And I saw a pic you posted awhile back with you supporting ANTIFA so spin more spin doctor.
Sean M Guay:You all (the resistance) missed that while you were busy sympathizing with AntiFA, spreading hatred about America and our President.
Carrie Fowler: I will spread hatred about and for Trump till the day I take my last breath. He does not represent me or 58% of this country. He is a national embarrassment.
Amy Thomas: NJ DHS listed AntiFa as domestic terrorists. Aligning with them when your seeking a position in the public school system board…what message does that send to the children, their families and the tax payers? Fine, you don’t like Trump but to associate with domestic terrorists? Wow
Sean M Guay:AntiFA assaulted a police horse, harassed civilians and police in the street around 3rd and Forester, blocked traffic and sprayed a chemical mixture at police in Harrisburg on June 10.
Carrie Fowler, you are a current school board director elect, and as a ‘leader’ in this community, the citizens of Harrisburg must look to you for guidance.
Will you publicly condemn the violent activities of AntiFA and any person associated with them?
Amy Thomas Carrie Fowler, Do you condemn AntiFa? Simple question.
Carrie Fowler: I do support them (AntiFA) for their efforts to stand against hate. Am I a member? No. On that Saturday (June 10) in question Antifa were the only ones protecting the hate from walking down our streets and there was absolutely NO violence. Do I stand by everything they do ? No.
I am not tolerant of Trump and his hate. Not for one minute. I will expose him every chance I get. I will call him out every chance I get
Now have fun twisting my words to fit your agenda. I put action behind my words. I make mistakes just like everyone else, but when I do I admit them, learn from them and move on a better person.
Brittney Parker:Carrie Fowler I think it’s pretty interesting you say you will never tolerate hate, and then a few posts above this one you say you will spread hate for Trump till you take your last breath.
Of course, we all know you’re ok with facism and hatred as long as it’s someone or something you disagree with, am I right?
I don’t even like Trump, haha, I didn’t vote for him and left the GOP over it. But trying to claim the moral high ground on tolerance, diversity, and love while bragging about spreading hatred is pretty far out.
Apparently, Carrie Fowler was busy sympathizing with Antifa members, and while she was caught up in passionately spreading hatred of America and our President, she conveniently missed all the relevant national news about the violence and hatred that was caused by Antifa in Harrisburg on June 10, 2017. Recently, Fowler has become the Democratic mascot, making appearances on behalf of the party at every protest cause in the Pennsylvania State Capital.

The Faces of American Patriotism
By: Amy Thomas – The Sunbury American/ Harrisburg100
Gettysburg National Military Park issued several special use permits for First Amendment activities. The Sons of Confederate Veterans Mechanized Cavalry and the Maryland Sons of Confederate Veterans merged their two events to the location north of Meade’s Headquarters near 160 Taneytown Road from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There were more than 250 participants with both groups. Ted Feild and John Pickens, both of Pennsylvania, were with the Sons of Confederate Veterans Mechanized Cavalry along with Ski Bischof, of Allentown, who helped organize the events with a Facebook event called “Support America and Her History.”
Another group, Maryland Sons of Confederate Veterans, led by Raymond Rooks, consisted of about 20 people, marched in formation from the North Carolina Memorial to the Virginia Memorial, with small ceremonies along the way, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Gettysburg College professor Scott Hancock was issued a permit and staged a counter-protest against the Confederate Flag by himself.
Hancock, who has held similar protests in the past, said he was pleased to see the pro-Confederate Flag groups have less turnout than expected. He said he came by himself and didn’t publicize what he was doing to keep things from getting out of hand.
“The less support that groups that I consider to tell falsehoods about the past and the present, the less support the better,” Hancock said. “My guess was that it would be subdued because this seems to be the pattern. But in today’s political climate there’s always potential.”
Tammy Lee – New York – NY STATE DIRECTOR FOR AMERICAN FREEDOM KEEPERS ‘Well for me being there I have many meanings. Besides the fact that I was there to help and assist in the protection of our history. I was also there to personally walk the history and see all the things that I have been reading about in books. For me I would have to say being a patriotic American is believing in your country and its values. Trying to love all of its people and sharing in a unity that keeps this country the greatest country in the world. Trying to remember that we have freedoms and we have a liberties that most don’t have. But being patriotic also means defending this country against all enemies which can be foreign and domestic. Preserving what made this country and preserving it for the future. We live in a day and age where everything is being attacked our history our liberties our rights and our freedoms and without people that are willing to stand up and risk everything to ensure that we keep those freedoms and liberties to me that is the basis of a true American patriot when you put your country before yourself I do sacrifice whatever needs to be sacrificed to preserve our country. My experience there the other day was very heavy and very overwhelming to be were so many people died so many people sacrifice the ultimate sacrifice so that we can move on and move forward and be free. Like so many other important places in this country they are taken for granted as far as what they represent now and it was just a very deep experience for me”
George Curbelo – State Commander New You Light Foot Militia & National Board Member “We were there because we believe in everyone’s right to protest but the threat of violence and the desecration of grave are not within our rights. Our coordination with law enforcement made it possible for all freedom loving Americans to enjoy honoring this sacred sight.” (New York Light Foot Militia -17 Members Attended Gettysburg)
Rio Hiett – Vocalist/Frontman Madison Rising- Maryland “I am a combat veteran, Retired MSGT, USAF, AMMO and I love the USA. I respect the right to protest and march but I do not respect the tactics of the leftist groups. Destroying property, intimidation, and assault is not acceptable and should not be tolerated. I was there to represent Americas Most Patriotic rock band and my family. I believe we should stand up to these domestic terrorists, and their supporters. I am also willing to meet their level of aggression with a higher level. We, Patriots, must protect our way of life from all those that threaten it. So my feelings are this; protest and I respect it but cross the line, there will be consequences and repercussions.”
Alan Lee Beddingfield “My ancestors lived in South Carolina during the war and they were free people. They fought side by side. I see more racism in the North than I do in the South. I receive more racism from people of my own color. When I listen to Lynard Skynard they give me dirty looks. When I act a certain way the words “you act white” are repeated by those who are look at me with disgust as if I’m betraying my people. I grew up in the hood growing up I’ve seen four people get shot and someone stab right outside my house. When they want to kill each other and then nobody says word. Snitches get stitches. But then when a white cop or another person commits the same crime they want to scream and post it on Facebook. It’s about having what they want. Not about what’s right.”
Helena Rodriguez- Reading, attended with her husband Robert to show her patriotism. Rodriguez said she was born in Cuba but has lived in the United States since 1969. -I am an AMERICAN PATRIOT! I NEVER FELT ENTITLED TO ANYTHING! I IN THE OTHER HAND FELT BLESS & HONOR TO BE PART OF THE GREATEST NATION IN THE WORLD! This my Home Sweet Home, where i found the meaning of FREEDOM & BROTHERHOOD! GOD BLESS THE USA!
Bill Birster- Locust Gap- I am proud beyond words and I love that my son stood by my shoulder side by side and saw first hand what a true solidarity against these domestic terrorists.
Jennifer Flavin –Lehigh Valley- Modern Patriots Pennsylvania Chapter “As an American and a supporter of our military men and women going to Gettysburg meant a lot to us. In no way were we going to allow them to destroy the history and the graves/headstones of our fellow American soldiers Doesn’t even matter what side they were on they were Americans not racist but Americans who fought and died for this country…and we honor them regardless what side cause we Patriots don’t see color, race, political background or religion …we see Americans”
Cynthia Rejoyce Lindsey -Preformed The Star-Spangled Banner “I wanted to be there to show my support for my country, her history, and President Trump. I’ve been to a few outdoor rallies/marches, and each time, it was more (or equal number of) Antifa distrupters than were us patriots and Trump Supporters. I want to continually be part of a show of force and solidarity with my fellow conservatives as we fight this war of ideology and preserving history.”
John Pickens National Sergeant Major of The Sons of Confederate Veterans, spoke of his family history and of his ancestors who fought in the American Civil War in both South Carolina and Gettysburg. “We had heard that the domestic terrorist organization as AntiFa were going to come out to this park and desecrate our ancestor’s graves, we all answered the call. Today is not about violence, it’s about teaching the person something because violence does nothing but create more violence at the same time can walk away learning something I would rather change their mind than change the direction of their teeth.
Ted Field – Sons of Confederate Veterans Mechanized Cavalry Permit Holder for Event “This event is too important not to be here. I think the movement today is going to send a clear message to AntiFA that we are not playing around and that if they are going to come to our National Parks and cause problems, we are going to be here to stop them”
Ginny Lee – 3rd Great Grand Niece of General Robert E Lee
What we need to ask ourselves why would Americans take up arms against one another? The left say it was about slavery and that “the South was pissed because the North was going to take away their slaves”. That’s what they want you to believe. Does anybody in their right mind think that 50,000 men converged on one location to fight over slavery? All of us, ancestors of those people who fought and serve as a soldier, know the truth because we have been taught the truth handed down to us generation after generation and it is up to us to stand up and continue to speak the truth particularly when we are faced with such blatant lies. The Civil War was not fought over slavery…The Civil War was caused due to the aggression of the north. and the African slaves that fought with the Confederate Army were for the most part all free men, where as the African slaves fighting for the north were forced to fight for the union army. Because the North won the Civil war or as I like to call it, “The War of Northern Aggression”, history has been misrepresented and re-written to further their agenda and it is all to apparent, specially in today’s world. That agenda was as detrimental to all Americans as our ancestors said it was 154 years ago.
Andrew Shecktor- Berwick- US Senate 2018 Candidate “I stood beside you, I walked with in your marches while rocks and tear gas was being thrown. Tell me, what other politician today has had that has done that? NONE. Now I will stand behind you, before you and beside you in everything you stand for and will do so as long as I am alive and as long as I can. Today we stand on hallowed ground and beneath our very feet lies the blood of Patriotic soldiers of both the North and the South who fought for causes they both believed in and believed were just. We must never let the people who died on this Battleground to have died in vain.”
Pastor George Cook-Pennsylvania “We have here today come to honor the dead and their valiant actions.” He then went on to ask the audience to get on bended knee and place a hand on the ground. “I want you all to be connected, just for a moment, to the blood that was soaked into this very soil 154 years ago. On a day long ago, men wearing both blue and gray came here and here their life-blood was poured out’
Dan Gray – Writer and Speaker. My name is Dan Gray. That doesn’t sound Jewish, but trust me, I am. So, now you may be asking why a Jewish guy went to speak to folks rallying in support of keeping Confederate monuments? I’ll tell you. It’s about America. About History. About Truth. You see, some of my family came to this country just ahead of the terrible wave of violence that swept across Europe in WWII. That swept the hundreds of my relatives who stayed behind into concentration camps, to their deaths. Out of all those, only two survived. We embraced America, not for what ills it had done in the past, (and like any country, there were many). We became Americans because of how the People continually rose above the sorrows in their wake, to constantly make America a better place, closer after every crisis to that Shining City on a Hill that our Founders meant us to be. What happened to my family is far from unique. Besides Jews, Nazis exterminated an even greater percentage of the world Gypsy population. They killed millions upon millions of innocent civilians, everywhere they went. And it wasn’t just Nazis. Soviets may have been less efficient, but they killed even more than the Nazis did. ChiComs were cruder still, but topped the Soviet death toll. In countries all over the world, since WWII, murdering dictators and their minions have dealt death wholesale, whatever their alleged ideology. Some, like Idi Amin, basically HAD no ideology other than raw power, and the effects of tertiary syphilis. ISIS today has yet to reach the numbers of even a Pol Pot, but it’s not for lack of trying. In each case, the victims were different, but the perpetrators were really much the same. There were two things every one of these murdering hordes had in common. How they started, and what they did just prior to their atrocities. They began with violent rhetoric that soon blossomed into violent thuggery, and in each and every case, they sought to destroy history. From Nazi book burning, to Soviet revisionism (so sadly comical in their crude cutting and pasting of textbooks), to ChiComs’ Cultural Revolution, that not only killed millions, but almost destroy the millennia-old culture of China, they sought to erase the past. ISIS destroys Buddhist shrines, treasures of world heritage. The Muslim Brotherhood, during their brief reign in Egypt under the auspices of Obama, even made plans to level the pyramids. I kid you not. The Pyramids, last surviving wonders of the ancient world, blown to dust for worship of Pharaohs and Sun Worshipers who came thousands of years before Islam. Why? What threat did the stories of those long dead present to tyrants? History is not a boring subject we were forced to memorize in school, back when they actually taught it. It is nothing more or less than the stories of people. Those that came before us were much like us, and faced much the same sorts of problems that we do today. How they did what they did, and why, informs us of our very natures, and points the way towards present dangers and possible solutions. The news is simply history that is unfolding before us in the now. We begin to wake to the dangers of false news narratives, but fail to realize the horror of losing our past. George Santayana famously said that those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. Gettysburg has been the subject of more histories than any other battle. As long as those historical analysis are based on actual facts, there is plenty of room for debate as to the whys of it. We are free to make our own interpretations of what was, and this educates and elucidates us. It tells us who we are. When we watch news, we must demand that same adherence to fact, even though there may be many ways to understand it. Without knowledge we can count on as correct, we cannot be expected to make good decisions for our future; for the future of our children. And that is why those who would rule us must destroy our past. It’s not enough to lie about what is, or even to force us into the gas chambers. As long as our stories remain, there will always be the spark of rebellion, the trace of wisdom. And tyrants cannot sit safely upon their thrones of skulls, knowing that we still know. Today, across the United States of America, we are under dire threat. First they learned to lie to us. Next they started assaulting us. Now they come for our past. For good or ill, those that came before us did what they did. We would be fools to give up the lessons of history without a fight. No matter whether we just arrived, fought on either side in the Civil War, or can trace ancestry back to the very beginning, our history belongs to us all. It even belongs to foreigners who study it intently seeking lessons to help free themselves from tyranny, today. Do not doubt the determination of those who oppose Liberty today. But they should not doubt our own resolve, either, shown today on these hallowed fields by our daring presence. And none who read History should think that this nation of ours is split 50-50, that a new Civil War is inevitable. For despite what certain ‘leaders’ would have us believe, with few exceptions we all have heart. We care for each other. The only difference that matters now, is whether we know the facts of what we’ve gone through to get to this critical time. If we know what was, we can determine for ourselves what will be. And so, while I stand willing and staunch between thugs of any stripe and peaceful people who only want to be heard, I cannot and will not castigate half of America as evil, or stupid. They are merely men and women who have not learned. And if we mean to prevent upheaval, to reform America once again to adhere even closer to her ideal, it falls upon us to listen, to care, and to educate our fellows, so they to may understand.
Toby Germinario – “We came to support our history it may not be perfect but it’s our history nobody has the right to destroy or damage the graves or monuments it’s crime”
Tourism and Patriotism are two things that are alive and well in the historic Civil War battlefield town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Thanks to the hard-working, law-abiding citizens of our fine country, with a special thanks to the Veterans and everybody who supports their efforts. Because of these great people, America remains a free, clean, and secure first-class nation. Evidence of this fact was fully on display during the 154th anniversary celebration and reenactment at the Battle of Gettysburg.
The Patriots Band Together at the Battle of Gettysburg to Defend America Against AntiFA
On July 1, 2017, as the American Patriots mounted a strong show of force with 1000’s of people who traveled in from out of town, it was clear that the ranks of AntiFA were dwindling, and their inability to have a presence at this event was a humiliation to their organization, symbolizing a major blow to their credibility as a supposedly relevant influential factor in America.
AntiFA Identifies Its Most Wanted American Patriots
After being forced to resign from demonstrating hatred and violence in Gettysburg, a post event propaganda was published on ITS GOING DOWN, where AntiFA resorts to further threats of violence:
Initially being credited for issuing the #AntiFAban, thus leveraging AntiFA to avoid rioting in Gettysburg, the author and publisher of the original report have now been identified and targeted for future violence by the terrorist organization.
It has been confirmed that many AntiFA scoutes did show up in Gettysburg to scope the scene, to observe opposition leaders, and to identify primary targets of AntiFA:
As it is being reported in Europe, and according to the mainstream American media narrative, AnitFA didn’t apply for permits to be in Gettysburg (they did and were denied), and ‘Trolling Trumpsters’ is an alt-right controlled fb page that initiated the rumors (its actually controlled by AntiFA affiliates, as is the Harrisburg AntiFA fb page).
Reports surfaced that a Confederate supporter, whose identity has not been disclosed, brought a revolver to Gettysburg National Park and accidentally shot himself in the leg. The incident took place around 1 pm.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s website was hacked on Sunday, June 25, and displayed what appeared to be pro-ISIS propaganda.
Visitors to governor.ohio.gov were greeted with a black background and an Arabic symbol while an Islamic call to prayer played in the background.
“You will be held accountable Trump,” text on the landing page said, “you and all your people for every drop of blood flowing in Muslim countries.”
“I Love Islamic state,” it said.
A group calling itself Team System DZ, apparently hacked numerous state websites, including first lady Karen Kasich’s website and the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections website. Those pages displayed the same message that Kasich’s did. In addition to the pro-ISIS language, a line appeared on each page that said “Hacked by Team System DZ.”
It was not immediately clear who the group was or whether it was genuinely affiliated with ISIS.
Kasich’s staff said Sunday that they were aware of the hack and working to resolve the issue. They’d been working on the hack on the Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections website when they were alerted to their own hack.
State Treasurer Josh Mandel posted about the Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections website on his Facebook. “Wake up freedom-loving Americans,” he said. “Radical Islam infiltrating the heartland.”
The FBI’s Ohio field office would neither confirm nor deny whether Team System DZ was a known entity to them.

LOS ANGELES — Johnny Depp has asked a crowd at the Glastonbury Festival when was the last time an actor assassinated a president. The remarks came during a segment Thursday in which Depp was speaking about President Donald Trump.
“Look at London! That’s what the Democrats and the mainstream media want for us”
“This is the 1960s all over again. The only thing we are missing is an assassination, but even that is gaining favor.”
In light of this event in which 5 people, including 2 Capitol Police, were shot, bipartisan support of our country and the value of all life, should bring us together in unity. It is time for the left to show some dignity as human beings and speak out against the violence and hate.
The people who live in these echo chamber bubbles of society have developed extreme ideologies to support their dwindling political relevance. This cult-like anti-government activism has spread into the Arts community. In a copycat version of Kathy Griffins violent Severed Head image, the following group from Harrisburg, PA, shows no shame in its equally disturbing new art exhibit.
CopyCat Severed Head “Art” Display
According to their website, We Arts Collective (WAC):
“The behavior of our current administration is unacceptable, and we are left without proper recourse.”
In celebration of Kathy Griffin’s violent display of the severed head of our current United States President Donald J. Trump, this exhibit is led by this artist.
“These attacks against the image represent more than just attempts at censorship, but rather the ideologies that fuel the support of our current President. We fully believe that art is one of the last forms of expression in which we can feel free and is a tool to be wielded in the struggle against injustice.” – WAC
This artist holds strong beliefs in the anti-Trump rhetoric.
“We are recreating this photo in order to support freedom of expression through art while simultaneously resisting the current administrations outlandish use of power against the interests of American citizens.” – WAC
Harrisburg, PA – Mayor Eric Papenfuse is living every child’s dream: More ice cream.
According to a exclusive interview with Harrisburg100, Papenfuse’s City Hall staff has settled into Pap’s routine and know his desires, sometimes before he does. Staffer and Chief Propagandist Bruce P. Weber knows first hand about the excessive waste of Papenfuse
For example: Papenfuse takes two scoops of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, Harrisburg100 reported, while everyone else around the table gets just one.
Papenfuse: Pennlive and Civil War Museum ban ‘could be my fault’
In the interview published Thursday, Papenfuse also expanded on his view of The West Shore Boys stalking him during the 2017 Trump visit to Harrisburg, refuted reports that he is unhappy with his current Director of Finance & Budget, and took a level of blame for his administrations failed $200,000 comprehensive plan.
But, more than anything, Pap gave Harrisburg100 a window into some of the oddities that make his City Hall unlike any in modern history, including the traits that make Pap tick.
Here are some illuminating takeaways from the interview:
Business at any cost
Papenfuse casts himself throughout the interview as Harrisburg’s businessman, someone who is wasting as much federal grant tax dollars as possible to line the pockets of his friends, and create the illusion that he is rebuilding Allison Hill.
The focus of the interview extends to faulty FBI crime statistics, that are due to the dysfunctional computer system in the Harrisburg Police Department.
Harrisburg100 reported that Pap brought up how he is trying to champion the cause of removing illegal firearms from the mean streets of the warzone, in Harrisburg, PA.
Report: Papenfuse blames self for ruining the relationship of the city with the Civil War Museum
‘It is 100% my fault’
Pap rarely takes blame, and throughout the 2017 Mayoral campaign he said he rarely, if ever, apologizes.
But during his interview with Harrisburg100, Papenfuse took responsibility — sort of — for the major failures of his administration.
“It is 100% my fault,” he said. “I don’t want to necessarily take the blame, but it is my inability to engage with the real citizens of Harrisburg that has been the detriment of this administration.”
“I fully think apologizing is a great thing, especially considering that I am dead wrong,” Shlap told Kristen Vordell in September 2016 PennFake Interview. “I will absolutely apologize sometime in the distant future if I’m ever wrong.”
Papenfuse accuses James Ellison of misrepresenting him on facebook
A level of introspection
Papenfuse, carrying on the tenor of his vicious 2017 campaign, has made Harrisburg a more acrimonious place. James Ellison, appalled by his negative campaigning, has grown more fearful, more vocal and more disgusted. Papenfuse has kept his foot on the gas, too, by publicly calling out Ellison in the Mayoral Debate, for his recent facebook activity.
But during the Harrisburg100 interview, as the dinner was wrapping up, Papenfuse appeared to have a moment of introspection.
“It never made sense to me, the level of animosity,” Papenfuse said. “All we want to do is squander tax dollars, we want to raises taxes and parking rates, we want to steal midtown property for our personal gain, while we forget about the rest of the city, and we won’t worry about fixing education in Harrisburg.”
Papenfuse, notably, at times during the 2017 campaign defended his midtown establishment and the well paid spouses of his good friends who are owed favors, and attacked a local attorney who is the treasurer of his opponents campaign. More recently, he cast Pennlive reporting as the “enemy of the city.”
Harrisburg, PA – A Democratic NAACP Rep advocates for people of color to vote for African American judges as a counter to resolve the ill effects of “white privilege” in our state court system. The endorsement was made via fb post, on a platform that has been growing in popularity. Facebook has become a convenient resource for political campaigning. The post was marked with the hashtag #BlackJudgesMatter.
Brandon Flood is very active in the political arena and has a strong following on his personal facebook page. Utilizing fb as his platform, and elaborating on his role with the NAACP, he often makes posts from a pro-African American perspective.
Sometimes the postings of various actors in Harrisburg push the limits of racial boundaries. At some point this practice became socially acceptable as the norm, although more recently these radical perspectives are becoming noticed by critics who come from varying backgrounds.
The Big Sarge Show featuring Brandon Flood:
In the title, the term “livid” is used to help illustrate a double standard. The mainstream networks are publishing reports of democratic outrage over a GOP flyer supporting judges who stand for the flag. Supporting the American flag and our country is a primary expectation of American judges. Perhaps those mainstream reports serve as a distraction to deflect attention from the actual controversy of vilifying white privilege to justify reverse discrimination. No published reports have mentioned the true racial controversy, while they instead focus on attacking the American flag. The term “livid” is a typical feeling experienced by liberals, and certainly republicans are not acting out furiously angry as have the democrats. In this exchange the active critics of the anti-white privilege endorsement remain calm and focused on the hypocrisy of it all.
Initially the posting of Flood’s endorsement, which tagged 77 others, gained the attention and commentary of dozens who support the effort to elect African American judges.
The posting was eventually challenged by republican and moderate pundits who cited prejudice, victim mentality, and double standards. Many leftist who chimed in had counter arguments, often by making emotional appeals that referenced the suffering of blacks due to the perceived injustice of white privilege.
The following exerpts are a sample of the exchange between anti-white privilege supporters and the critics of this endorsement:
Sean M GuayI would say that this post is a form of extreme rhetoric that divides our nation.
Some would say that Brandon’s post is racist.
It does advocate for the idea of white guilt being normalized.
LaLa Clark:I have been trying to avoid the ignorance on this post but it keeps popping up so I will say this. In reading the original post I didn’t see any mention of voting for anyone over another because of color. In the “black” community there are plenty of people who complain that there isn’t enough diversity and this was an opportunity for them to be made aware that there are qualified people of color running. That is it that is all. Where has the common sense gone… I mean really?? You have a man of color sharing information and his post is deemed racist…. I just cant!!! I’m wondering how many European American’s actually vote based on best qualified regardless of race🤔
Shariah Brown:Robert Brandt it’s really a much longer conversation. But if we keep setting this issue aside it’s the same as ignoring it. 50% of the prison population is black and Latino. Men of color can not raise their families or send their kids to college. If you are not willing to do the work, I can not educate you. Not now. Not on this forum,however, I do love all races, never the less if you won’t be a part of understanding you are a part of ignorance.
Robert Brandt:Shariah Brown And that’s part of the problem. The victim mentality. Lets face it minorities have great opportunity in this country. Moreso than ever before in our history. No one is being ignorant here but to state there is this myth of privilege is the divider in the conversation.
Sean M Guay:I think the post would have been okay without the white privilege part. That idea has become a weapon of the left.
I understand why some white people may be offended by using white privilege to justify reverse discrimination.
Ironically, members of the same democratic party are outraged over a simple GOP mailer endorsing Judges who support the American flag:
Brandon Flood:.Let’s look at the facts here people. There has only been one judge of color elected to the Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas in the entire history of the Court. There has only been one judge of color elected to the Pa Supreme Court in the entire history of the Court. In my lifetime, there has never been a judge of color presiding within the York County Court of Common Pleas. Lastly, in the history of the Pa Superior Court there literally has been no more than a handful of judges of color. That said, and I say this with the utmost degree of respect to anyone that takes exception to this post, go f&%k yourselves!
Sean M Guay: The original post does not promote equality or unity.
I’d like to highlight the double standard here.
Imagine if someone posted in favor of voting for white judges to counter the black power supremacy that could be perceived in these politics.
Gerald Welch:Robert Brandt we can never put race to side, because is attached to everything single thing that effects the lives of Black people. Law, Economics, Entertainment, Politics, Religion, Sex, Justice!
Councilman Cornelius Johnson is the first public official to be named as part of a local organization’s quest to hold taxpayer funded employees accountable.
After months of complaints from life-long residents to the city, it is no secret that 1837 & 1839 Rudy Road is on their radar.
What is more disturbing is how Harrisburg City Council Member Cornelius Johnson has had direct knowledge about this specific problem, and has bold faced lied to residents of the city. In this video, at the 43:36 mark, at an October 19th, 2017 Codes Meeting, Cornelius Johnson not only says how he has specific knowledge about these properties that a resident was complaining about, specifically at the 44:53 mark, Cornelius states that if a property is deemed hazardous, the CITY will secure them.
The next day, the unsecured property was set on fire. A week later there was another fire.
More disturbing, is that almost 40 days prior to the codes meeting, Cornelius had a Facebook exchange with another resident, where the resident practically begged him to visit the property.
A follow up on that Facebook post, Cornelius said he did visit the property.
Cornelius: Why are you lying to city residents? If you have no intention of performing, then don’t look us in our faces and lie.
In a recent Facebook post, Friends of Allison Hill, who spearheaded efforts to clean this entire block up, posted a video of the aftermath of how fake politicians will look you in your eye and lie, and go on social media and lie, and then look the other way when senior citizens lives are put in danger.

A controversy began when the Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine published an article in March 2011 entitled “The Unrecognized First”. The article explains that Mary Groce, a descendant of Emory Conrad Malick, found a picture of her great uncle and believed he appeared black. Upon seeing his picture, Groce and her cousin, Aileen exclaimed “Oh my God, he’s black” and “This explains my brother’s blond afro!” The black and white picture shows a man with a cap covering his hair, flying an early airplane. The article’s picture closely matches a picture of Emory shown in an advertisement with the label “E C Malick” for the Curtiss School of Aviation Class of 1912, seeming to confirm the identification of the individual in the photo. But no one authenticated the claim and there was not even a claim of a family tradition of being black. In fact, the descendant stated, “I was never told about Emory or my mixed heritage.
The fact that Emory was a pioneer aviator is not in doubt. There are plenty of documents showing his attendance at the Curtiss Aviation School, visiting his parents in Northumberland County, and performing aerial exhibitions in the area. His exploits are described in the local newspapers for approximately 19 years. But all contemporaneous records have shown that Emory and other members of the extended family were indeed, white. Of course, having the first black anything would be an honor for any family to claim, but it would need to be based on established facts and documentation to have any value.
The claim that Emory Conrad Malick was the First Black Aviator might have gone unchallenged if not for a book published in 2014 by black aviation historian, Guy E Franklin, titled “Emory Conrad Malick: A Closer Look”. In Franklin’s book, Guy methodically outlines the case that Emory was in all actuality, white. He even included research on Emory’s membership in the The Independent Order of Odd Fellows, which was limited to white members at that time.
Multiple contemporaneous documents show not only that Emory was white, but that he had a “ruddy complexion, brown hair, and blue eyes”. The class picture alone from the Curtiss Aviation School would not prove that the written record is incorrect and that Emory was black or that perhaps that he may have been pretending to be white. Emory his parents, grandparents, and other ancestors as well as siblings all self-identified as being white.
The Sunbury Daily Item on 16 Jun 2013, added the claim that “His Malick ancestors, already of mixed European and African heritage, came to Pennsylvania from Germany in the 1700s.” To date, there has been no record found of any proof of mixed African heritage in the Malick family in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. Please note, the people of Northumberland County did not nor would not care if these pioneers were white or black or members of any other ethnic group. But claims of this importance require evidence and all the evidence says the Malick families were white (reference 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, etc US census records as well as modern DNA ethnicity reports).
Many Conrad/Malick descendants have completed genetic DNA testing done and they have yet to nd any in this line that show African descent in the ethnicity report. While some African DNA could support this premise, the lack of African DNA, even in trace amounts, suggests that they are not of African descent. In particular, one person who is a descendant of Darius Malick and Susanna Conrad showed no African ancestry in an ancestry.com autosomal test.
Mary Groce has developed a narrative based off of her interpretation of a photograph and for over a decade has perpetuated said narrative across the country. But she has provided no evidence to support her claims, in fact, the evidence that is available shows her narrative to be false. Her own DNA results, via Ancestry.com, show that she does not possess any genes that can be directly linked to peoples of color from Africa. Her claim that the Malick line of her family, from which she is related to Emory by, was of color, even in part, has never been shown to be factual and is, for all intents and purposes, the ramblings of an individual intent on forcing the world to buy into her story. This goes beyond whether Emory was indeed of color and identi ed as white, like his entire family, because all the evidence shows that he was, in fact, white. Mary Groce has crafted a narrative based on one old photograph and a misconceived notion of racial identity and, as such, must either provide concrete evidence to prove herself in the right, or step aside and allow her Conrad and Malick relatives to tell the true story of Emory.
In conclusion, it seems that Guy Franklin’s investigation and conclusion that Emory was more likely white seems obvious. An independent observer would note that there are no indications anywhere in the record to suggest that Emory in particular or the Darius Malick family in general were black or even of mixed black ancestry. One would expect a high standard of evidence for declaring someone to be the First Black anything. Emory Conrad Malick does not meet this standard. Several museums and other such organizations took Ms. Groce at her word and have embraced the claims without validating the information.
As a distant cousin of Emory C Malick, I myself reached out to Mary Groce asking her to contact me and discuss her claims about Emory, but received no response.
I would like to thank Guy E Franklin, Tim Conrad and the facebook group Tuskegee Airman for all their help and research on this endeavor and all of our continued efforts to correct this claim that Emory Conrad Malick was the first black aviator, for it is an honor that truly belongs to Charles Ward Chappelle who earned a club license in 1911.
Harrisburg, PA – City council turned down the posposal for Eastern University to lease unused space in the City Hall building.
This was an opportunity for the city to rent out space in the basement of the city government property, and Eastern University offered to spend $600,000 on building renovations.
Of the rejected deal, Harrisburg resident Anthony Harrell says: “City Council I am with you on this, the mayor sprung this on you and the citizens, and he already had it set up!”
Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse responded: “We are going to take taxpayer dollars to help fix a building instead of potholes and playgrounds, and to me, it was a no-brainer, and we should have moved forward with a partnership with Eastern.”
Beau Brown, a 17 year commercial real estate veteran says he can help Eastern University find an alternative site.
He was in favor of the proposed deal, and stated in the past that it seemed like Eastern U and the administration worked hard on the feasibility exercise to locate at city hall.
Brown stated that despite prior disagreements with the administration – he believes that he could serve both the client and the city’s interests by finding a site where the city can still benefit directly or indirectly.
This was a clean partnership proposal and it shouldn’t fall to the back burner.
Let’s work together to find a beneficial alternative.
Dauphin County released evidence today to the plaintiff, Timothy Rowbottom, in his case against Karl Singleton, Senior Advisor to Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse.
On May 09, 2017, around 9 p.m., the plantiff alleges that Mr. Singleton threatened the man in a physically intimidating manner, and alluded to knowing his home address. This incident occurred in the Harrisburg Hilton Hotel during the 2017 Mayoral debate. Singleton and Rowbottom were both in attendance at the debate event that took place that evening in the 2nd floor Ballroom.
When Rowbottom attempted to serve the Harrisburg Police department today, he was told “No” they can’t accept the supoena.
When asked to put it in writing, HBG PD complied and accepted the supoenas for more evidence.
Harrisburg City Solicitor Neil Grover also attempted to withhold evidence when he aggressively approached the plaintiff in city hall recently.
In a similar politically motivated threat, it’s also been alleged that the defendant Karl Singleton physically threatened Dauphin County Commissioner Jeffrey Haste after an informal meeting several years ago. That particular incident was broken up by other county officials who were present.
