We came, we saw and I got locked up.

Hillary Gets Away With It? Let’s See — President Trump threw out an interesting bit at his rally last night (Aug.30) in Evansville, Ind.

He said:

Our biggest obstacle and their greatest ally actually is the media. You can believe it. We have stories that are so big and the media doesn’t pick them up. We have stories that if that was about a Republican or a conservative it would be front page of every newspaper and we have them and they just don’t want to write them. It’s a dishonest group of people. I will tell you that. You can have the biggest story about Hillary Clinton, I mean just look at what she’s getting away with but let’s see if she gets away with it, let’s see.

He kept his promise on NAFTA. Maybe he will keep his promise too about locking her up.

His statement can be found at about the 27 minute mark:

Lou Barletta Triggers Kochs, Globalists Want Casey

Lou Barletta Triggers Kochs, Globalists Want Casey — The globalist Koch Brothers — Charles  and David  — have shown their true colors and are working to save a Pennsylvania senate seat for fellow globalist Bobby Casey, a Democrat, and to keep it from falling into the hands of pro-citizen Lou Barletta.

The Kochs say it is because Lou voted for the budget in March which called for increased spending.

Sure it is (wink). The real reason is because Lou is an opponent of open borders and allowing MS-13 and other gang-bangers to traffic cheap labor for industrialists and other neo-feudalists.

See where Bernie Sanders just praised the Kochs? He doesn’t like Trump’s Americans first policy either.

Election day is Nov. 6.

Pain Coming For Democrats?

Pain Coming For Democrats? — Michael Horowitz, the inspector general of the Department of Justice, spent the last two days testifying before Congress about the behavior of FBI officials in their investigations of Hillary Clinton’s, private, poorly secured email server, with FBI director Christopher Wray joining him Monday (June 18).

They strongly hinted the matter is not over. The illustration below — click on it for a better view —  accurately describes Wray’s answers to Sen. Ted Cruz, which can be seen first hand here at about the 3:07 mark.

Education Access Now Piggy Bank

Education Access Now Piggy Bank

By Leo Knepper

The Education Access Program (EAP) budget item has increased by nearly 600 percent since the 2014-2015 budget cycle. Initially, the EAP had a $3.95 million budget. It grew to over $23 million last year. If you dig into it a little, you’ll find that the funds from the Program have been requested and spent on projects mainly to benefit Senate Democrats. In some cases, the funds go to school districts directly, but the majority of the funds have gone to support organizations like: The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts, The Bryn Mawr Film Institute, and The Pittsburgh Opera.

Private individuals making donations to charitable organizations is a vital part of civil society. When government forces taxpayers to support particular organizations, that is another matter entirely. Lawmakers’ ability to present giant cardboard checks to local charities is a pernicious part of the “incumbent protection” program designed to make it harder to dislodge elected officials once they are elected to office. Furthermore, over the course of recent history, we have seen members of the General Assembly direct tax-dollars to “charities” that directly benefited them financially, or organizations that were run by their campaign contributors.

Beyond the problems associated with doling out tax dollars to favored charities for good public relations, sending funds to school districts via the EAP is never a one-time deal. One of the quirks in how Pennsylvania funds school districts is a “hold harmless” provision. Essentially, the amount of money sent to a school district from state taxpayers cannot be decreased. In other words, the payments from the EAP to school districts will always be included in the “Basic Education Funding” the school receives from the Commonwealth. A $10,000 grant automatically turns into an additional $10,000 included in the next year’s (and the next, etc.) baseline funding.

Despite an insistence almost every year that the state budget is “cut to the bone,” questionable spending through the EAP and other programs illustrates that that is not the case. Too many members of the General Assembly confuse wants and needs when it comes to spending tax dollars. As we move through the budget process, our elected officials would be wise to take a closer look at where our money is actually going.

Pennsylvania Shadow Budgets Are Font Of Corruption

Pennsylvania Shadow Budgets Are Font Of Corruption

By Leo Knepper

Pennsylvania Shadow Budgets Are Font Of Corruption  By Leo Knepper  One of the only good things to come out of last year’s budget was a transfer of $300 million from Pennsylvania’s shadow budget to the General Fund to cover the overspending. The shadow budget is comprised of Special Funds
Shadowy Spender

One of the only good things to come out of last year’s budget was a transfer of $300 million from Pennsylvania’s shadow budget to the General Fund to cover the overspending. The shadow budget is comprised of Special Funds that exist outside of the normal budgeting process. Several lawmakers found over $1 billion in excess money in these accounts last year. After a great deal of public pressure, the General Assembly agreed to transfer $300 million from the shadow accounts to the general fund. The $300 million was money already collected by the state and collecting interest in a savings account. To borrow from our favorite clickbait headlines, “You Won’t Believe What Happened Next!”

Rather than taking funds from the extra $1 billion that lawmakers identified, Governor Wolf created a new special fund. For this new special fund, Wolf borrowed $200 million against the State Farm Show Complex through a “leaseback” agreement. The arrangement is basically a loan that will cost taxpayers $191 million in interest over the next twenty-nine years. But wait, there’s more.

According to reporting on the deal:

“The winner was Blackford Ventures, a Lancaster County development company that provides government entities and private businesses with cash. After Blackford won the bid, the company created a separate firm, Municipal Real Estate Funding, in December to handle the Farm Show transaction. Both Blackford and Municipal Real Estate are listed on the contract.

“The company is owned by Richard Welkowitz, a one-time Teamster laborer turned entrepreneur. Blackford’s chief executive officer is Mike Brubaker, a former Republican state senator.” (Emphasis added)

Several members of the Pennsylvania House are exploring legal options to halt the lease. True to form, the Wolf administration may have overstepped its legal authority in entering the agreement. Under the Pennsylvania Constitution, only the General Assembly must approve the issuance of new debt with very limited exceptions. The issue revolves around whether the deal is a lease or a loan. There is also the matter of Governor Wolf creating a Special Fund out of whole cloth in order to subvert the intent of the General Assembly. Given the PA Supreme Court’s recent willingness create new powers for itself, we are skeptical that they would be willing to intervene on behalf of taxpayers in this instance.

Lawmakers are exploring the option of requiring the Wolf administration to make the lease payments from the Executive Branch’s budget. We will let you know if they take that route.

Amazon Postal Cronyism And President Trump

Amazon Postal Cronyism And President Trump — President Trump, this morning, tweeted:

I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy. Amazon should pay these costs (plus) and not have them bourne by the American Taxpayer. Many billions of dollars. P.O. leaders don’t have a clue (or do they?)!

Note the parentheses around “or do they.”

You don’t need to be a brain surgeon like Ben Carson to get that he is expressing a suspicion that the leaders of the United States Postal Service are taking bribes.

It is not an unfair suspicion.

Not even a week ago — March 28 — President Trump fired Dr. David Shulkin as secretary of Veterans Affairs, replacing him with Ronny L. Jackson, who had been the White House doctor and is a Navy admiral.

Shulkin last summer took his wife on a luxurious European vacation on the taxpayer dime and accepted gifts that could be construed as graft. He also was by many accounts dragging his feet on needed reforms.

So if Amazon is getting the great taxpayer subsidy via the postal service as it appears why would one not expect palms to be getting greased?

Biden Kerry Chicom News Judgement

Biden Kerry Chicom News Judgement  — The media is making a YUGE story about a sex worker saying she shagged then businessman Donald Trump 12 years ago.

Interesting we guess. Two decades ago we’d have been real upset. Totally outraged. Callouses grow though.

Two decades ago the media would have killed the story, of course, just as they are killing another far, far, far more significant one.

Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, are in business together. Their company is called Rosemont Capital. Subsidiaries include Rosemont Seneca Partners, LLC, Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners, and Rosemont Realty.

Rosemont is the name of the Heinz family estate outside of Pittsburgh.

Anyway, Rosemont has made a series of great business deals with the Chinese. These deals came on the heels of diplomatic missions directed by the principles’ parents that were puzzlingly beneficial to Beijing.

Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.

Anyway, Mr. President, God bless you. We don’t care how many porn queens you shagged. You love this country and you are looking out for us, unlike the hypocrites and, yes, traitors who populate our Capital.

The Biden-Kerry corruption is described in Peter Schweizer’s new book: Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.

Turn off CBS and the other propaganda outlets and check it.

Hansjorg Wyss Sex Assault Investigation Reopens

Hansjorg Wyss Sex Assault Investigation Reopens — With the talk about the release of the Congressional memo revealing FBI interference on behalf of Hillary Clinton and attempts to undermine the Trump Administration after The Donald’s victory, we’d like to call attention to a story not being widely reported regarding another major Clinton supporter.

An investigation into sexual assault  by Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss has been reopened by Fredric M. Knapp, the Morris County, N. J., prosecutor.

Wyss is accused of brutally assaulting former employee Jacqueline Long on April 3, 2011,  at the Governor Morris Hotel in Morristown.

Wyss  is a boardmember of the progressive Center for American Progress, founded by John Podesta, the strange man who chaired Hillary’s failed 2016 campaign.

Wyss donated $5 million to the Clinton Foundation in 2013 to support “the progress women and girls have made in the 20 years since the UN Fourth World Conference on Women.”

Hansjorg Wyss Sex Assault Investigation Reopens
Really Hansjorg, stay away from barbells.

The Wyss Foundation also gave $110 million to progressive activist groups in 2014 and 2015. It should be noted that Podesta sat on the board from 2009 to 2013.

Wyss also was the architect for an aggressive $100 million “Democracy Program” in 2016, which sought to create a “surge of registration,” as reported by The Daily Caller.

Wyss’ company Synthes Inc had to pay a $23.8 million fine in 2011 after it was found to have conducted illegal human experiments that resulted in the deaths of three elderly patients.

Hey Hansjorg a little friendly advice: Stay away from windows and  barbells.

Usual Republican Suspects Stop Anti-Corruption Bill

Usual Republican Suspects Stop Anti-Corruption Bill  — On Dec. 12, the usual Republican suspects in Chester and Delaware counties voted against a bill that would have banned political contributions from automatically being deducted from the paychecks of public employees.

There is no morally justifiable reason for a nay vote.  You doubt this? Name one. Give us one reason why money promised to a person for his labor should be taken without his consent and given to back a cause with which he may not agree.

SB 166 was an extremely mild bill. It only applied to public employees and allowed for deductions for union matters including salaries.

And it still couldn’t pass.

The usual Republican suspects are, from Delco,  Steve Barrar (R-160), Nick Miccarelli (R-162), Jamie Santora, (R-163),  Alex Charlton (R-165), and Chris Quinn (R-168), and. from Chesco, Harry Lewis​  (R-74) Becky Corbin (R-155)​ and Duane Milne (R-167).

The Usual Republican Suspects sounds like a great movie. Maybe we can get Bryan Singer to direct it.  Who would Kevin Spacey play? Maybe Val DiGiorgio. We can call him Keyser So So.

By the way, if you care about the labor movement and if you care about workers — which union bosses obviously do not — crusade to end automatic deductions for union fees for everyone.

Automatic paycheck deductions hurts labor . Why do the massive amount of money obtained from these involuntary deductions go to causes and candidates such as lobbying for unfair trade pacts and stopping pipelines, which are obviously against the interests of labor?

Hmmm?

Without this guaranteed income the union leaders would actually have to heed the will of those they claim to represent.

The most successful lobbying group in America is the NRA. Suppose if its officials got paid no matter what it did? You think they’d work as hard?

They’d work about as hard as the union bosses do for their constituents, and private access to firearms would have long ended.

Barrar Charlton Save Corrupt Dem Piggy Bank

Barrar Charlton Save Corrupt Dem Piggy Bank — The Republican-controlled Pennsylvania House, yesterday (Dec. 12), squashed a senate bill that would have stopped the automatic deductions of money used as political contributions from state worker paychecks.

The contributions overwhelmingly go to Democrats and left-wing causes. SB 166 would have ended the practice.

Every Democrat present voted nay as did 26 Republicans including the Delaware County contingent. That would be you Steve Barrar (R-160), Nick Miccarelli (R-162), Jamie Santora, (R-163),  Alex Charlton (R-165), and Chris Quinn (R-168).

What is even the point of voting Republican? These guys certainly don’t seem to be trying to make our lives easier. Their own, yes, but not ours.
