Montco Leaders Obsessed With Defeating Joe Gale

Montco Leaders Obsessed With Defeating Joe Gale — The Montgomery County Republican Party and other suburban swamp factions have recruited three candidates in hopes of taking out Joe Gale and his running-mate, Sean Gale, in the May 21 primary. In the process, the Gales are being subjected to vicious social media attacks by the flunky class and one former failed leader.

This is strange because Joe Gale is a very popular incumbent Republican county commissioner.

Montco has three commissioners, one of whom must always be a member of the minority party.

Incumbents are rarely the target for party bosses, who prefer to minimize boat rocking.

Of course, when the incumbent is a boat rocker himself and is threatening to capsize the whole sweet uni-party deal, the establishment cannot help themselves.

Joe is running for reelection with his brother Sean. If both are the Republican nominees on the general election ballot this would give Republicans the best chance to win back control of the county from the spend-happy Democrats considering the Gale Brothers have strong support from not just rank-n-file Republicans, but Independent voters and old-school Democrats. 

Winning control of the county should be the goal of the party leadership you would think, but we suspect that is not the case. One can make a lot of money in second place we are learning (i.e. – ‘go along to get along’ wink-wink).

What is drawing the ire of the political class from both parties is Joe’s willingness to call attention to the bald corruption sucking the blood of the county taxpayers.

In his very first budget he pointed out the burden an 11 percent tax hike would impose.

More recently, Commissioner Gale revealed the scandalous and unnecessary cost of new justice center.

What he did most recently — see below — is what really caused the vampire to shriek.

At this month’s meeting (Feb. 7), Joe courageously declared many ugly truths. He said just defeated State Sen. John Rafferty who had represented the 44th District since 2003 had received a half-million dollars in union contributions over the course of his career including from indicted IBEW boss John Dougherty.

He pointed out that Johnny Doc actively lobbied his fellow commissioners for the project labor agreement that is adding so much to the cost of justice center.

He said that Gov. Tom Wolf and Sen. Bob Casey also lobbied for the agreement. What’s up with that? Why is a U.S. senator getting involved in a local project? Joe, of course, gives the ugly answer. Again watch the video.

Then Joe got to the really really ugly truth.

“What I’ve come to learn as commissioner is that many times it’s not about conservatism ideology and liberalism ideology, it’s a business,” he said. “And the Republican Party bosses are the best friends of the Democrat Party bosses and they collude to have power.”

And then he went there. He pointed out the county’s commerce director — a high-paid, do nothing job — when Josh Shapiro was running things was the wife of now state Republican Chairman Val DiGiorgio. At the time Val was merely head of the Chesco GOP but he like Josh who is now the state attorney general and the rising star of the Democrat Party had eyes on bigger things.

He pointed out that the former Montco GOP head, Mike Vereb, now works for Shapiro. Vereb is his Director of Government Affairs. It’s a six-figure job.

“It’s establishment collusion,” Joe said.

And he’s right. Again check the video.

By the way, Johnny Doc has given $180,000 to Shapiro.

Mexico Paying For Wall After All

Mexico Paying For Wall After All — Joel Pollack on Breitbart points out that President Trump can start building the wall now and can burn through $4.5 billion before even touching the $3.6 billion from his contested national emergency declaration.

Pollack says the money available now includes $600 million from the Treasury Forfeiture Fund (Mexican drug lords), $2.5 billion from the Department of Defense to support counterdrug activities, and the $1.4 billion from the just approved budget. Only the money in the budget has restrictions, Pollack says.

Daphne Goggins Keeps Endorsement

Daphne Goggins Keeps Endorsement — The strange vote tonight (Feb. 18) on whether to rescind the Philadelphia Republican Party’s endorsement of Daphne Goggins for mayor granted five days ago overwhelmingly went in favor of the North Philadelphia ward leader.

We were told the tally was 29 -17 to retain the endorsement.

We were also told that the party leadership is still plotting to replace her.

Please don’t be that stupid.

Daphne Goggins To Be Rejected By Philly GOP?

The Philadelphia Republican Party, Feb. 13, endorsed North Philadelphia ward leader Daphne Goggins for mayor.

Philly GOP Re-Considering Black Female Candidate
Daphne Goggins

Not that it should matter, but Daphne is a black woman. She would be the first black woman to run for the city’s mayor with a major party endorsement.

Actually, she would be the first black woman endorsed by the city GOP for the office. Actually, she would be the first black endorsed by the city GOP for mayor, at least to our recollection.

Anyway, in a bizarre ham-handed move the Philly Republican boss Michael Meehan summoned ward leaders to reconsider. The vote to reconsider is scheduled for tonight, Feb. 18.

It would be the first time that the party reconsidered an endorsement vote.

The excuse is that Daphne is collecting federal disability payments. Not illegally or unfairly getting the money — there doesn’t seem any debate that she has fibromyalgia — but that she’s getting it.

Slick move Meehan. We think you want to lose. Really.

Why else would you discourage the blacks — many of whom think just like conservative whites — from participation?

It’s exactly like how suburban and rural Republican leaders try to drive out conservatives.

Just sayin’ but the city GOP leaders seem to do pretty good for themselves by finishing second.
