Ryan Costello Globally Warm And Comfy — Ryan Costello, who represented Pennsylvania’s once-Republican 6th Congressional District until his quitting in 2018, has found a comfy and warm landing spot.
He is now managing director of Americans for Carbon Dividends, which is pushing for something called the Baker-Shultz Carbon Dividends Plan which will increase the cost of energy ostensibly to save the planet from burning up.
He had a column in the Jan. 7 Wall Street Journal which if you have a subscription can be read here.
Besides working class mechants using air conditioners, he also bemoans the existence of the Second Amendment and immigration laws.
Hey, who needs social justice warriors when you have Ryanos?
Anyway, Costello’s long-time friend and bosom-buddy enabler is Val DiGiorgio who chaired the Chester County GOP when Costello was a rising star.
His tenure as county chairman saw a once Republican stronghold turn Democrat. His tenure as state chairman has been similarly spectacular.
Of course, we can’t be too hard on him. Being party chairman is just his hobby. His day job is being the “contact” for Stradley Ronon’s Government and Political Affairs Division. Stadley Ronon can be fairly described as a full-service political fixing firm. Services Val’s division has boasted of providing include “creating and shepherding major tax legislation for the mutual fund industry”; “lobbying for proposed rules and regulations on behalf of the insurance industry;” and “lobbying for congressional appropriations for public safety, health care and bio-tech clients.”
Val still has his defenders in the GOP. We’d like to ask them — with Tucker Carlson sincerity — how exactly can DiGiorgio represent the Republican rank and file and Stradely Ronon? Whose side would DiGiorgio must likely take in a conflict, the Republican rank and file or a Stradely Ronon client?
Fresh New Montco Republican Party Looms — Stan Cascio has let us know that 100 persons of varying political identities attended a soiree at his home to create a fresh new Republican Party of Montgomery County.
He says there were Tea Party conservatives, establishmentarians, two independents and one Democrat, whom he declined to name.
Among those in attendance were official GOP county head LIz Preate Harvey; the wonderful and influential Dom Giordano of WPHT; and county commissioner candidate Sean Gale, the brother of county commissioner and running mate Joe Gale .
Stan says everyone in the room agreed on 80 percent of things.
Stan says like-minded people — those who love freedom, hate corruption and lies, and recognize that rights are God-given — must unite else the neo-feudalists i.e. the New Democrat Socialist Party that holds that some animals are more equal than others will prevail.
Stan, who is running for county controller, said the county GOP has agreed to refrain from making endorsements this primary election.
Stan expressed disappointment about ads being run by the Gale brothers attacking the establishment.
“We must stop forming circular firing squads,” he said.
Stan had a great observation about border security and immigration vs illegal immigration.
“What if one one of the Democrats waiting to see Hamilton in Puerto Rico had someone butt in front of them in line?” he asked. “What would they do about it?”
Of course, we know the answer. Rules for thee but not for me.
Answer to yesterday’s William Lawrence Sr Cryptowit quote puzzle: When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord; he brought me into a spacious place. The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
Presidential Shout Out For Bunny Welsh — President Trump at yesterday’s (Jan. 11) border security roundtable described the rampant and twisted human trafficking that is occurring today and the desperate need for a wall.
Seated at his right the whole time was Chester County Sheriff Bunny Welsh who he recognizes at the 10:50 mark. Bunny then describes the tragic death of a Chester County boy due to fentanyl traced to a Mexican cartel.
It’s a great honor Bunny. Stay involved. We need you.
The roundtable can be watched at the below C-Span link. It is worth doing so.
