Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.
"Campaigning on an anti-immigrant platform is hardly a vogue far-Right strategy limited to those in the Beltway.
Across the country, some local sheriffs – apparently as concerned with provoking fear among their constituents as they are with actually protecting them – have built their careers on it. County Sheriffs Paul Babeu, Sam Page, and Chuck Jenkins, for example, have solidified their reputations as anti-immigrant hardliners far beyond the boundaries of their respective jurisdictions.
And they did so by aligning themselves closely with the flagship group of the organized anti-immigrant movement, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
With his recent announcement to hold a rally of sheriffs in Washington, D.C., on December 10th, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson of Bristol County, Massachusetts, has moved in earnest to join the ranks of those aforementioned – just as he did at this summer at FAIR’s “National Sheriffs Boarder School and Tour.” Together, it seems, they aspire to become the next Sheriff Joe Arpaio."MORE AT:

"The KLA, formed in 1991, initiated its first campaign in 1995 when it launched attacks targeting Serbian law enforcement in Kosovo, and in June 1996 the group claimed responsibility for acts of sabotage targeting Kosovo police stations. In 1997, the organisation acquired a large amount of arms through weapons smuggling from Albania, following a rebellion which saw large numbers of weapons looted from the country's police and army posts."

USS Lexington(CV/CVA/CVS/CVT/AVT-16), nicknamed "The Blue Ghost", is an Essex-classaircraft carrier built during World War II for the United States Navy. Originally intended to be named Cabot, word arrived during construction that the USS Lexington (CV-2) had been lost in the Battle of the Coral Sea. She was renamed while under construction to commemorate the earlier ship. She was the fifth US Navy ship to bear the name in honor of the Revolutionary WarBattle of Lexington.
Lexington was commissioned in February 1943 and saw extensive service through the Pacific War. For much of her service, she acted as the flagship for Admiral Marc Mitscher, and led the Fast Carrier Task Force through their battles across the Pacific. She was the recipient of 11 battle stars and the Presidential Unit Citation. Following the war, Lexington was decommissioned, but was modernized and reactivated in the early 1950s, being reclassified as an attack carrier (CVA). Later, she was reclassified as an anti-submarine carrier (CVS). In her second career, she operated both in the Atlantic/Mediterranean and the Pacific, but spent most of her time, nearly 30 years, on the east coast as a training carrier (CVT).
Lexington was decommissioned in 1991, with an active service life longer than any other Essex-class ship. Following her decommissioning, she was donated for use as a museum ship in Corpus Christi, Texas. In 2003, Lexington was designated a National Historic Landmark. Though her surviving sister ships Yorktown, Intrepid, and Hornet carry lower hull numbers, Lexington was laid down and commissioned earlier, making Lexington the oldest remaining aircraft carrier in the world.

Florio’s aim is to renovate and rent multifamily residential buildings, he said. He works in the city six days a week, out of an office on Rosa Parks Boulevard and Hamilton Avenue. But he has struggled to keep his properties secure, let alone clean or rentable.
“If you look at some of my properties on Governor Street, you would say, straight up, ‘You are a slumlord,’” Florio said.
He meant this figuratively — some of his houses appear to be in disrepair — mostly the result of break-ins from people seeking to steal valuable materials, like copper wiring and plumbing.
Hell will freeze over before we see another Republican President.
Anger at the political establishment has overtaken the Republican presidential race, but it is also coursing through the Democratic electorate, fueling the popularity of Bernie Sanders.
