Aiming to offer some help to an industry battered by the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Tom Wolf said Thursday he wants to waive liquor license fees for restaurants and bars.
Wolf said he is working with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to waive licensing fees through 2021, starting January 1, 2021. The administration said the move would provide $20 million in relief to more than 16,000 Pennsylvania restaurants bars, clubs, and hotels.
“My administration continues to look for innovative ways that we can support the bar and restaurant industry,” Wolf said in a press release. “Eliminating liquor license fees is an important step toward helping bars and restaurants retain the capital they need to weather the storm of COVID-19.”
Wolf held a press conference in Pittsburgh to talk about the effort. He said the liquor control board would move to waive the fees at its next board meeting. He noted the board is independent and has the authority to act on its own. But he said he hoped the liquor board would do “the right thing.”
Sure, Mark Kelly loves the Second Amendment. Just ask him.
“I am a supporter of the Second Amendment, I am a gun owner,” the Democrat said at last week’s U.S. Senate campaign debate. “Our rights and traditions are so important.”
“I probably own more firearms than your average Arizonan,” he told another interviewer.
But Kelly’s actions show disdain for gun rights. The Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which Kelly co-founded, endorsed California as the best model for gun laws while giving Arizona an F.
Californians fleeing their state might vote for the same failed policies in their new home of Arizona. If so, Mark Kelly is their guy. Arizonans who view the basket case to our West as a cautionary tale need to think twice.

Kamala Harris has announced that she will suspend traveling for just two days after one of her staffers tested positive for coronavirus, despite official CDC guidance saying those exposed should self-isolate for 14 days.
“Campaign announces Kamala Harris is suspending her travel until Sunday, Oct.18, after her communications director, Liz Allen, and a non-staff flight crew member tested positive for coronavirus,” tweeted CNN’s Sarah Mucha.
Communications director Liz Allen tested positive for COVID-19 as did a non-staff flight crew member.
However, the Harris campaign claims that Biden’s running mate “was not in close contact” with either of the individuals and therefore doesn’t have to quarantine.
“Kamala Harris has had contact with someone tested positive but is only suspending travel for 2 days,” commented Raheem Kassam. “Just remember how the media would be spinning this if it wasn’t Kamala Harris.”

St. Louis County Executive Sam Page has some of the strictest lockdown measures in nation. The Democrat has extended unnecessary lockdowns on children and has ruined youth sports. His outlandish rules have caused hundreds of county businesses to close down for good. Poor and middle class county residents are hurt the most and their children are suffering.
In August Sam Page toughened his orders requiring face masks, in an effort to keep the coronavirus from spreading. Under Page’s crackdown businesses are not able to serve people who aren’t wearing masks, and children over age 5 will have to wear them in school. People will also need to wear masks at indoor and outdoor businesses. Page also forced children to wear masks in public parks on the way to their soccer games even though others in the park were not wearing masks.
On Saturday Sam Page was caught at a local business sitting, chatting and having drinks with friends without a mask.
A video clip shows a white Black Lives Matter protester using the n-word and then claiming he’s allowed to because of rap music.
The footage shows the man trying to aggressively goad another man while he says, “Do something nigger!”
“What did you say to him?” asked another man filming the confrontation.
“I said to do something,” the BLM supporter responds.
“No after that?” asks the other man.
“Nigga, with an A!” responds the BLM supporter.
Business owners are furious after a photograph emerged of Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, who banned indoor dining, eating inside a restaurant in Maryland.
When Kenney prohibited indoor dining, he told residents, “We need to follow what we are being asked to do by the health department. I beg you to follow the rules.”
However, with restaurants in Philly struggling to stay afloat with outdoor dining thanks to Kenney’s shut down order, the Mayor visited a friend’s restaurant on Sunday and remained very much indoors.
Philly restaurant owner Marc Vetri slammed Kenney in a Facebook post.

Formula 1 multi-millionaire Lewis Hamilton, the face of an industry responsible for 256,551 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year, took time out of his busy schedule to virtue signal about the state of the environment while enjoying his luxury speedboat.
Oh, the irony.
“Took the day off on Tuesday, a day for myself and no phone, no training, just me and Roscoe on the water. I had time to reflect on where we are in the world today, everyday I see something upsetting happening, people being abused, people suffering,” said Hamilton.
“Oceans and forest’s being destroyed. 2020 is such a heavy year. But it gives me hope seeing people come together, fighting for justice and doing more for our planet and the people in it. I’m sending you all positive waves, keep pushing and inspiring those around you,” he added.
California Governor Gavin Newsom said Monday that the state could not afford to pay its share of President Donald Trump’s new expansion of unemployment benefits because it did not have the money.
The new expansion, created by President Trump in an executive order on Saturday, would provide $400 per week in additional assistance, $300 of which would come from the federal government. The remaining $100 would come from the states.
Newsom said that providing $100 per week would cost the state $700 million per week, rising to nearly $3 billion if the federal portion of the benefits were to run out of money. He said that the coronavirus aid that had already been given to the state had already been allocated to other spending priorities, and that the state did not have the money to make up the difference.

A video shot in the London underground shows a man wearing an ill-fitting mask that isn’t even fully covering his mouth aggressively lecturing another woman for not wearing a mask.
“So was just minding my own business when the mask police came to attack,” tweeted the woman involved in the confrontation.
“Fucking sort your shit out, yes, film me, because you’re a dickhead without a mask,” yells the rotund man as he approaches the woman in total violation of social distancing.
“You’re a cunt putting people’s lives at risk,” he continues, at which point in the video it becomes obvious that the man’s mask is not even fully covering his own mouth as he spits and snarls.

Libertarian Party presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen praised a company for firing an employee who had posted “all lives matter” on her private Facebook page as an example of the free market standing up against “systemic racism.”
During a C-SPAN interview, Jorgensen argued that Rosa Parks was discriminated against because, “what a lot of people don’t realize is that that was a government-owned, government-run bus, and the only way that racism was able to go on for so long was the government was putting it into place.”
She then claimed that it’s harder for private companies to engage in ‘systemic racism’ because they would go out of business, before celebrating the fact that a woman lost her job for posting “all lives matter” on her Facebook page.
“There was a woman who on her private Facebook — this was highly publicized — her private Facebook put ‘All Lives Matter,’ and the company fired her,” Jorgensen stated.
