Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. More Rats! And Racism?

 

RatsThe left has settled on the election strategy of screaming “racist, racist, racist” at President Trump and any who dare show any support for him. It need not be true if it works, as Senator Harry Reid shamelessly admitted after smearing Mitt Romney into defeat. Yelling “that’s racist!” is also a defensive move by Democrats, fearful of President Trump showing they no longer have a monopoly on peoples’ votes based on skin color. President Trump can win bigly in the 2020 election, and put his tormentors on the back foot now, if he simply goes on offense, keeping his promises made in on Trump’s New Deal for Black America. In so doing, he can make a substantial positive difference in the lives of forgotten and exploited Americans, cleaning up the rats, and the dirty rotten rats in local and state governments.

Considering how much the Ricochetoisie is firmly against mob violence, wanton property destruction, and general lawlessness, shouldn’t there be at least one thread on this site expressing outrage at the riots in Philadelphia last night? “Twitter users flooded the social media site with the hashtag sharing shocking reports allegedly made by officers over police scanners […]

A Philadelphia City Councilwoman wants to make it easier for thugs to rob convenience stores, liquor stores, and other businesses. A controversial bill is currently working its way through city hall designed to regulate ‘stop and go’ liquor stores. One part of the bill would force business owners to take down bulletproof glass inside their stores. But at what […]

Most of you will remember New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ill-fated attempt to ban sugary drinks of a certain size in NYC restaurants. The ban was sold as a response to a public health crisis surrounding sugar consumption and obesity. It was eventually struck down by the NYC court of appeals on the grounds […]

Last night was the third night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. We could tell you about the minor figures who strode the dais: Sigourney Weaver, Chris Murphy, Leon Panetta, Joe Biden, Governor Moonbeam, the latter proudly declared “Hillary Clinton does stuff!” (And yes, we just called Joe Biden a minor figure. Sorry, Joe. The truth hurts.) But there were three important speeches Wednesday night: Michael Bloomberg, Tim Kaine, and President Obama.

Monday was the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Not unlike the Republican convention, which had a theme each night, the Democrats had a theme too. As near as we can figure, last night’s theme was “Angry Yelling.”

The further Japan gets from its crushing defeat in the Second World War, the stranger it gets. We really did a number on their national psyche, if their strange ads and strange music videos are any guide. Now Japan is home to the “Strange Hotel,” or Henn na Hotel in the local vernacular. What makes the resort so weird? It’s staffed entirely by robots.

ricochetlove4They’re coming! Like a Fancy Brigade plowing into a swarm of umbrella-pumping Comics, the two Philadelphia Meetups are struttin’ into town. And if you don’t get that reference, don’t worry; it alludes to one of the inscrutable charms of the city that only true Philadelphians pretend they understand.

The Wednesday June 4th Meetup will entail a dinner full of Rico wit and bonhomie at Devon Seafood, 225 South 18th Street, starting at 5:30. The luminaries attending so far include Rushbabe & Ray, Pencilvania and Julia PA, and we’d love to see you too.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Patton in the Classroom

 

All of upper-crust Philadelphia — my home town — is abuzz with the news of a major drug bust in one of the most elite prep schools in the area. Apparently, two recent graduates of the Haverford School, located on the Main Line in Philadelphia (where The Philadelphia Story was set), ran an illicit drug conspiracy to a number of local schools, including their alma mater. Police confiscated drugs and a number of weapons.

The roundup was the end of a four-month investigation into the ring that began after authorities received a tip. Search warrants executed at nine different locations turned up 8 pounds of marijuana, 3 grams of hash oil, 23 grams of cocaine, 11 grams of MDMA, more than $11,000 in cash, a loaded AR-15 assault rifle, a loaded 9mm pistol, gun ammunition, eight cellphones and two cars.
