Ellingsen, Welsh Seek State Committee Race

Ellingsen, Welsh Seek State Committee Race — Complaints are common about cronyism and corruption; about unfair taxes and public spending with no benefit for most.

Most of the time the complainers only vote in major elections if at all.

We aren’t going to judge. The lazy, corrupt, cronyist media likes it like that and fails to report the issues in a way that explains their ultimate consequences.

On May 15, Republican voters in State Committee Region 2 of Chester County will have a chance to give a black eye to cronyism.

Two candidates long-sickened by the how-can-we-milk-the-cow-today attitude of the GOP leadership are in the race.

They are Donna Ellingsen and Tim Welsh.

The 351 state committeepeople are elected every four years during a primary election. They determine who the party endorses in state-wide elections and, more significantly, pick  the state party leadership.

Last year, a guy who works for a political fixer and has close ties with the state’s leading D behind Tom Wolf won the state chairmanship . It was by just two votes despite arm twisting and intimidation.

There are rarely challengers to the people put up by the party leaders.

Chesco Region 2 is a exception hence an opportunity.

It consists of Coatesville, South Coatesville, Modena, and Valley from Area 14; Atglen, East Fallowfield, West Fallowfield, Highland, Parkesburg , Sadsbury  and West Sadsburgy from Area 15; Elk, East Nottingham , Lower Oxford, Oxford Borough, Upper Oxford and West Nottingham from Area 19; and Caln and West Brandywine.

To help Donna and Tim call 610-932-2242.

Bathroom Bill Headache For Wagner

Bathroom Bill Headache For Wagner

By Carla D’Addesi

A simmering issue is heating up in Pennsylvania’s Gubernatorial Primary to be decided on May 15. Confusing campaign ads and ambiguous language are hiding the truth causing Pennsylvania to appear to be another corrupt swamp in need of draining!

The emerging battle has divided Conservatives and is challenging the paradigm of the Republican Party, turning them against the PA GOP itself!

Let’s simplify the situation for voters.

Current PA Governor, (D) Tom Wolf will be challenged in November by one of three  Republican primary candidates: Laura Ellsworth,  Paul Mango, or  State Senator Scott Wagner.

The divisive issue has to do with the “Bathroom Bill” otherwise known as the PA Fairness Act. Though the “Fairness Act” has a pleasant ring to it, the controversy lies within the ambiguous wording of proposed Senate Bill 974, which seeks to add “gender identity & expression and sexual orientation” to Pennsylvania’s Human Relations Act.

The confusion arises because the language in the Bathroom Bill doesn’t actually include the word “bathroom” but instead says “Public Accommodations.”

The new law would state:

State law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity, age, religion, and handicap, among other characteristics, in the areas of employment, housing, and public accommodations.

Public accommodations are places that provide goods and services such as restaurants, movie theaters, hotels, and public schools.

If sexual orientation and gender identity were added to the anti-discrimination law, which is co-sponsored by Scott Wagner in SB 974, then public accommodations could NOT exclude transgender people from the restrooms that correspond to their gender identity!

What does that mean to your children, their schools and their safety?

Biological males and females will have the right to access bathrooms, locker rooms and showers of the opposite sex!

Biological boys who believe they have a girl’s brain, and are trapped in a boy’s body, will be allowed full access to all girl’s bathrooms, locker rooms and showers.

Biological girls who believe they have a boy’s brain, and are trapped in a boy’s body, will be allowed access to all boy’s bathrooms, locker rooms and showers.

Men who “feel” like women will be permitted to waltz into the women’s locker rooms of the YMCA where my daughters are changing for their swim classes.

My unwillingness to share my locker rooms with men isn’t a matter of mere discomfort. It’s a matter of safety.

Women don’t fear transgenders in the spaces; they fear men in their spaces. How can we distinguish between a transwoman and a predator until it’s too late?

Ironically, women’s shelters, places often sought to escape dangerous men, would be forced to admit men who “feel” like women. According to research published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as many as 57 percent of the women in shelters report domestic violence as the primary cause of their homelessness. What does it look like when those men are allowed to claim female “gender identity” and follow them in?

Paul Mango, vows to veto any “bathroom bill” legislation that violates privacy for bathrooms and public facilities, ensuring women & children our privacy, safety and protection of religious liberties.

True Conservatives in Pennsylvania plan to elect Paul Mango.

Regina Scheerer Meet Greet At Bogart’s

Regina Scheerer Meet Greet At Bogart's
Mrs. Scheerer

Regina Scheerer Meet Greet At Bogart’s — Regina Scheerer, who is a candidate in the Republican Primary for the 165 District Seat in the Pennsylvania House, is holding a meet and greet , 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 11, at Bogart’s Bar & Grill in the Springfield Shopping Center.

Appetizers, desserts and soft drinks will be provided.

Mrs. Scheerer, a retired teacher, was motivated to run by the feckless indifference of the incumbent on a range of issues including out-of-control spending, cronyism and pension reform. Did you know that there is someone collecting a $477,591 public pension in this state? The incumbent certainly does and appears to find it just peachy.

He certainly hasn’t been objecting to it.

Come out and meet Regina.

Joe Billie Ends Run For Congress

Joe Billie Ends RunJoe Billie Ends Run For Congress — Joe Billie who threw his hat in the ring for congress when Pat Meehan was still the expected Republican candidate and most of Delaware County was in the 7th District, has tweeted that he is ending his run:

My 2018 Congressional bid has ended. I have learned so much & will keep up the fight! Our government continues to fail our Veterans! The Establishment must go! THANK YOU to everyone who supported, donated & spread the word! Let’s keep it going! 2020 will be here soon!

Good luck Joe. Stay involved.

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures
Regina Scheerer, retired teacher

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures — Regina Scheerer, the retired teacher who is taking on incumbent State Rep. Alex Charlton, delivered nominating petitions containing nearly 900 signatures, Friday, to the  Pennsylvania Bureau of Commissions, Elections and Legislation.

Only 300 signatures are needed.

Unless there are some bizarrely major issues (shenanigans), expect to see Mrs. Scheerer’s name on the ballot for the May 15 Republican Primary.

Charlton was elected to represent Pennsylvania’s 165th District in 2016 replacing long-time incumbent Bill Adolph.

Since then, he has time and again poked his constituents in the eye. He has opposed commonsense reforms aimed at curtailing vote fraud. He has endeavored to maintain the corrupt system that lets money be automatically deducted from the paychecks of public employees to pay for politicking. This politicking often involves supporting things that the employee opposes.

He has refused to fight for pension reform. Did you know that there is someone in this state getting a $477,591 public pension for which you are on the hook? Alex certainly should.

Alex has avoided the fight to abolish the Prevailing Wage mandate which could  shave $25 million off the price of the $125 million Springfield High School project. Why does Alex want to inflict this burden on his elderly neighbors living on fixed incomes?

The final straw for Mrs. Scheerer, though, came Dec. 12 when Alex voted against limiting abortions to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy rather than the existing 24. He was one of six Republicans to do so. Civilized people understand that failing to protect weak and helpless life lead to nihilism and despair. Most of Western Europe bans abortion — with some strict exceptions — at 12 weeks.  Note, this would be 12 weeks gestational age which would be about nine weeks after conception.

Even hip, progressive Sweden and Norway ban them at 18 weeks gestational age.

Alex, however, who ran as a pro-lifer, thinks that’s too oppressive.

The 165th District has 63, 769 residents as of 2011 and consists of Morton Borough;  Springfield Township except for the 2nd precinct of the 3rd Ward; Marple Township except for the 5th Ward; and the 4th and 6th wards of Radnor Township along with 1st Precinct of the 1st Ward, the 1st Precinct of the 3rd Ward and the 2nd Precinct of the 5th Ward.

For the record, Mrs. Scheerer says she will not take the legislative  pension.

Mango Vs Wagner Splits Tea Partiers

Mango Vs Wagner Splits Tea Partiers — A lot of stuff is flying at us concerning the GOP gubernatorial battle. State Sen. Scott Wagner, of course, is being savaged for his strange support of bathroom bills giving a man — among other things — by-right access to Interstate ladies rooms because he claims to feel like a woman.

That he canceled an appearance at a forum, Sunday (Feb. 11) hosted  by the Pennsylvania Family Council has not helped him.

Wagner of York County, however, ended up being a strong supporter of President Trump during his 2016 campaign and has been outspoken in his opposition to Pennsylvania’s cronyism and corruption.

And Wagner is pro life and pro Second Amendment.

His main opponent, Paul Mango from Allegheny County, is being attacked for being a senior partner of the consulting firm McKinsey & Co, which was recently contracted by Gov. Tom Wolf for a study concerning the state budget. Mango is also getting grief for having backed Jeb Bush in the last GOP presidential primary. Mango, however, got on board the Trump train when he secured the nomination.

And Mango, a graduate of West Point who served with the 82nd Airborne Division, has hired Trump strategist David Urban and obtained the endorsement of Trump ally Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton.

He also is right on the right issues.

For what it’s worth, either man is an infinite improvement over Tom Wolf. We’d back Wagner in a heartbeat but for his backing the bizarre bathroom bills. As it is, we lean towards Mango.

Lunch With Joe Billie

Lunch With Joe Billie
Joe Billie

Lunch With Joe Billie — We just finished a lunch with Joe Billie, who may be the only declared Republican candidate seeking to to replace out-going  Pat Meehan in Pennsylvania’s 7th District.

Billie says a Chadds Ford man has also officially declared but we can’t find much about him.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Jan. 22 that the congressional districts established in 2010 and used for three election cycles were unconstitutional and ordered them redrawn . Today (Feb. 9) is the deadline but as of this writing the new boundaries are unknown to us. Billie is a resident of Aston, however, and it is a pretty safe bet that Aston will be included.

Billie began his campaign months ago angered by Meehan’s attitude towards veterans — Meehan was the only Republican to vote against the VA Accountability Act of 2015 — and his  hypocritical disavowal of then candidate Trump two weeks before the 2016 election.

A veteran himself, Billie left classes at Delaware County Community College in 1990 to join the Navy when Operation Desert Shield began. He was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS America eventually rising to the rank of petty officer. He was involved in numerous actions in the Persian Gulf, Bosnia and Somalia.

Leaving the service in 1994,  Billie returned to college pursing a degree in criminal justice. He became active in the community re-joining the Folcroft Fire Co. where he grew up. He rose to the position of chief and also became the borough’s fire marshal. He became an assistant fire marshal in Aston after moving to that town.

Billie re-enlisted in the Naval Reserve after 9/11.

He works at the Kimberly Clark paper mill in Chester  and is a member of the United Steelworkers.

Billie is married to a (legal) immigrant from Portugal and has two children, one of whom will be starting  college in the fall.

He describes himself as a constitutional conservative and is right on just about everything. For details see his website.

He says he understands  teamwork and that working with Dems is key in the 7th District.

Governors Run Alone Notes Gale

Governors Run Alone Notes Gale
Joe Gale

Governors Run Alone Notes Gale — Montco Commissioner Joe Gale who is among those running for the GOP lieutenant governor nomination in the May 15 primary, has observed that that gubernatorial candidate Paul Mango may be on the verge of announcing a lieutenant governor “running mate.”

“If so, this would be the same mistake gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner made when choosing RINO Jeff Bartos to be his so-called “running mate,” Gale says.

Gale notes that there is no such thing as a joint ticket in the Republican primary for Governor and Lieutenant Governor. These are two separate and distinct races.

“Don’t be fooled by fake tickets between now and the May 15th primary election,” he said. “I am the only Lieutenant Governor candidate that can help the eventual Republican gubernatorial nominee defeat Democrat Tom Wolf in November when there truly is a Republican ticket chosen by the Republican voters of Pennsylvania.”

Charlton Gets Primary Opponent

Charlton Gets Primary Opponent
Regina Scheerer

Charlton Gets Primary Opponent –Regina Scheerer has announced that she will be taking on incumbent State Rep. Alex Charlton of the 165th District in the Republican Primary.

Mrs. Scheerer is a retired middle school math teacher. She has lived in Springfield for 40 years and has 12 grandchildren.

Charlton’s vote against a bill that would limit abortions in Pennsylvania to 20 weeks — the present limit is 24 weeks — was the final straw for her albeit there was much leading up to it.

Here is her statement explaining why she is running:

Dear Neighbors and Friends in Springfield—I will be challenging our State Representative Alex Charlton in the upcoming May Primary on May 15.

First I must get my name on the ballot.

In order to do that, I need 300 valid signatures of registered Republican voters in Springfield, Marple and Radnor Townships, and Morton Boro, on petitions to be circulated starting next Tuesday, February 13 and ending on Wednesday, February 28.

Since signatures on petitions may be challenged, and therefore voided, we need 600 signatures altogether.

I need volunteers to go to registered Republican voters in their neighborhoods to collect these signatures.

I will give you a list of the Republican voters in your neighborhoods along with instructions.

An alternative to going door-to-door would be to host 20 – 30 registered Republican voters at your house for an hour, I would come to speak to them and then they would sign the petition.

A combination of both may work for you also.

Why am I doing this?

The main reason is that Alex Charlton ran and was elected as a pro-life Republican. (Pro-life is a platform of the Republican Party.)

He recently voted against a bill that would have limited abortions in PA to 20 weeks (5 months) gestation, which is more than half the time of a woman’s full term pregnancy.

It would not have taken away a woman’s right to an abortion, but it would have lowered the allowable time in PA from 24 weeks to 20 weeks.

16 other states have already adopted the 20 week limit.

The bill also would have banned the barbaric practice of dismemberment abortions.

A Delaware County Republican representative has never voted against a pro-life bill.

Alex Charlton’s pro-abortion vote is incompatible with the Republican Party and incompatible with those who respect Life.

Rest assured, I will not be a one-issue candidate. There are other issues directly affecting PA taxpayers; one, that is especially impacting Springfield School District taxpayers with the building of the new high school, is the required “prevailing wage”.
