Harry Reid Fiddles As GOP Addresses Border

Harry Reid Fiddles As GOP Addresses Border

When President Obama attacks Republicans or the Bush administration a pulsating W appears on the left side of his forehead. It’s a mystery.

 

President Obama, in a bitterly partisan and divisive press conference, yesterday, Aug. 1, condemned the Republican-controlled House of Representatives for failing to pass legislation addressing the border crisis.

So what did the GOP-controlled House do in response? They passed a bill addressing the border crisis.

And what is going to happen to this bill? Nothing, because the Democrat-controlled Senate has taken a recess.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in fact will be in Cherry HIll on Monday to campaign for New Jersey Democrats.

Priorities are priorities one supposes.

GOP Must Reject Alinsky

Saul Alinsky’s 1971 book Rules for Radicals included a dedication to Lucifer and advised as political strategy the use of ridicule, threats and the personal destruction of opponents.

Alinsky can fairly be called the founder of the modern Democrat Party. Brack Obama is a follower as is Hillary Clinton.

Most of the old media is filled with followers of Alinsky. They are basically political operatives who call themselves journalists. When hard questions are asked and uncomfortable truths are reported by the few who still actually practice the trade, the Alinskites let accusations of bias fly and attack their integrity. Some would say they are projecting. We, however, think it is a premeditated  strategy, which is even worse.

The educational system at all levels is dominated by Alinsky disciples. Ask a young person if he thinks truth is objective or is something for the individual to decide. The answer is likely to be revealing.

Ask yourself if people who threaten, and are willing to follow through on those threats, to harm children to get greater wealth should be allowed to be teachers. If you live in Pennsylvania, then ask why already wealthy teachers are allowed strike when it is obvious that the biggest victim of strikes is those whom we entrust to them. It certainly should not be difficult to end this practice but it has been around since about the time of Alinsky’s book.

If you live in any state ask yourself why it is so hard to fire unsatisfactory, even bad, teachers.

Some conservatives advocate adopting the tactics of Alinsky for their cause. They are badly mistaken.

Mocking stupidity is certainly a temptation that can’t be avoided but ridiculing to destroy is something we must not do. We have to build. We have to create. We have to unite, not merely utter the word meaninglessly as per Obama.

We have to recognize that truth is objective and real and applies to everyone regardless of what they want things to be.

We have to love our neighbor and our enemy.

We have to follow someone else, not  Lucifer, who is not a radical fighter for the little guy as per the claims of Alinsky but a simple tyrant-wannabe.

GOP Discontent Seen

The Republican Party powers in Montgomery and Bucks counties prevailed on May 20 regarding State Committee races but that insurgents Steve Piotrowski could get 10,060 votes in Montco while Jay Russell and Jimmy Clendennen could get, respectively, 7,207 and 6,202 in Bucks sans party support shows that things are not all copacetic.

State GOP Chairman Rob Gleason clearly does not have his ear to the ground so to speak.

The insurgent primary challenged that terrified Pennsylvania’s feckless incumbent governor is over.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has thrown Bob Guzzardi off the ballot for May 20, Guzzardi just announced .

The Pennsylvania Republican leadership challenged the 68-year-old retired businessman’s petitions scant minutes before the deadline forcing the self-funded campaign to hire a lawyer to show that those who signed had been eligible to do so and to defend a bizarre claim that the phrase “semi-retired businessman and lawyer” as his job description was somehow fraudulent as he was no longer practicing law.

Oh, and that he violated a technicality as to which paper-please bureaucracy he was supposed to file his stuff.

His lawyer, Gretchen Sterns, did a fantastic job at the hearing before Commonwealth Court Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt who found rather conclusively in Guzzardi’s favor on April 15.

But apparently the fix was in. An appeal was filed and the decision desired by the party powers came though.

Expect a Democrat to be in the Governor’s Mansion next January. Power-hungry fools whose arrogant stupidity leads to shooting fleas with cannons deserve to lose.

What did they have to fear from a retiree who was pointedly refusing campaign donations?

By the way, did you see where the same bunch is trying to take out man-of-the-people Republican State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cathy McMorris Rodgers Response Was Worth Watching

Cathy McMorris Rodgers Response Was Worth WatchingI didn’t watch the President’s State of the Union Speech but I just caught the highlights on the WSJ channel on my Roku. When the highlights are content free, the decision to spend last evening with Atlas Shrugged Part I on Netflix looks like the right one.

I did, however, also watch the Republican response by Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-5 Wash). It may have been the best response ever by a Republican. Expect to see the congresswoman on a national ticket albeit she appears to have  struck a nerve and the H8ers are coming after her.

And yes, Atlas Shrugged Part I was surprisingly good.

GOP Destroying Tax Vote Looms

SB 1, aka “The Transportation Bill” aka “The Income Destroyer Bill” aka “The Republican Suicide Bill” may be voted on by the Pennsylvania State House this week, reports Teri Adams of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association.

The bill calls for a 30 cent per gallon tax hike on gasoline, among other things. It was approved by the Senate in June but tabled when those crazy Tea Party types in the House put up a fuss. Well, it looks like it’s now time for round two and the establishment “Hey, It’s Not My Money” Republicans seem to think they can make enough of a deal with the “IT’S MY MONEY, GIMME, GIMME, GIMME” Democrats to overcome the Tea Partyers.

Gov. Tom “I Need No Stinkin’ Second Term” Corbet has promised to sign it.

“Just so you know, Governor Tom Corbett and a majority of the PA Senate  refuse to call a gas tax increase of roughly $.30 a gallon a ‘tax.’  Just substitute the euphemism ‘revenue’ for the word ‘tax’ and allow them to take you to the cleaners,” said Ms. Adams.

She notes that the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry also supports the bill as parts of the state’s infrastructure is indesperate need of repair.

“But State Representative Stephen Barrar (R-160) informs us that the $2.5 billion Transportation Bill is laden with pork for bike trails and other parks and recreation spending,” said said. “Representative Barrar suggests that while bridge repair is necessary, the additional spending is not.”

Also, the citizen cannot afford a 30 cent per gallon gas tax hike.

Ms. Adams and her association suggest Governor Corbett and the PA Assembly cut spending elsewhere in the budget or pass the Liquor Privatization Bill and use the fees generated from the sale of liquor licenses to cover the cost of repairing the bridges.

“Why is it that our Governor and State Senators always look to our wallets as the solution to their funding problems.  Do they not understand that our wallets are empty?” She said. “Do our elected officials not know how to prioritize budgetary matters?”

She asks that citizens call House Majority Leader Mike Turzai at 717-772-9943 and tell him to table SB1–the Gas Tax Bill!

“Then call your State Representative and tell him/her to VOTE NO on SB1 if and when it comes up for a vote,” she said.

Ms. Adams thanked  Dom Giordano and Rep. Barrar for bringing this critical issue to light.

Why There Are No Black Republicans

Philadelphia Weekly interviewed three black Philadelphia Republicans who gave an honest critique as to the dearth of black Republicans, and yes the lion’s share of the blame came down on the GOP leadership. Robert Mansfield, Lewis Harris, Thermone Spence Jr. note that not merely has the GOP not sought to reach out to blacks but has actively fought their recruitment into the party — at least in the city. Why There Are No Black Republicans

Another important point that one takes from the article is that while there may be a handful of black Republicans there are a whole, whole lot of black conservatives.

It should be noted that while blacks were coming out in record number to return Barack Obama to the White House in Michigan they were voting down a referendum that would have enshrined automatic deductions of union dues into the state constitution. The defeat would inspire the state legislature and Gov. Rick Snyder to turn Michigan into a full-blown right to work state.

When Scott Walker stopped automatic deductions of union dues from the paychecks of state workers in Wisconsin, refusal of blacks to support his recall gave him a larger margin of victory in his second victory than in his original.

It’s something of which Tom Corbett should perhaps become aware.

Let us further note that in Pennsylvania, it is the blacks who are supporting school choice and charter schools. It is the blacks who are trying to give abortionists the death penalty.

Here is the article: PW Roundtable: Black Republicans on Their Existential Struggles

 Why There Are No Black Republicans

Percy Dougherty Calls In Big Favors

By Bob Guzzardi

I received this fundraiser email from quasi Republican and 100% Squish Lehigh Commissioner Percy Dougherty who is faced with a primary. Lt. Gov. and Corbett Surrogate and Deon Union Republican BucksCo Jim Cawley is fundraising for NOT the Forgotten Taxpayer’s Friend Percy Dougherty!

Yikes, why is governor endorsing in a county commissioner Republican Primary? Because the Governor’s actions do not match the rhetoric at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference (sometimes called the Incumbent Protection Conference with shameless promotion from Fred Anton, his spokesman Dave Taylor and the phony and failed Charlie GID Gerow). Incompetence is Us! Is it a wonder Republicans are losing Pennsylvania.

Percy Dougherty has opposed the Lehigh County’s Reform Agenda and most recently enabled the Democratic Unions and Democratic Allentown Mayor Ed Pawloski’s Lehigh County Authority Water/Sewer Lease effectively enacting a stealth tax increase on Allentown water and sewer customers. As a Lehigh County Commissioner, Percy Dougherty had the opportunity to vote with real Republicans on the LCA.  And voted with plugged in Democrat and Allentown Parking Authority Solicitor and former Allentown City Solicitor Dan McCarthy

Because the Governor is a failure and a phony as his polling numbers show. Fortunately, he has obtained competent campaign help from Ed Rendell and his billionaire funding network headed by Comcast Obama Democrat David L. Cohen. And more at Huffington Post

Once again, the Governor, through his surrogate, Deon Union BucksCo Republican Jim Cawley, has intruded and endorsed a local commissioner candidate in a Republican Primary! Two years ago Governor Corbett and State Chair Rob Gleason backed quasi Republican 100% Squish Dean Browning who supported Lehigh County Democrats’ spending and tax increases.

One would think that the Governor, whose plummeting poll numbers are common knowledge, would distance himself.

Note Percy Dougherty corrected my misperception that he was running in tandem with quasi Republican and 100 percent Squish Dean Browning. My mistake. I assumed (without evidence) that the Governor had reached into a local Republican primary on loser Dean Browning’s campaign in 2010 and is, was, again, reaching another quasi Republican 100% Squish, the campaigns were related. Dean Browning and Percy Dougherty are NOT running as a team.

Although County Chair Wayne Woodman and I have exchanged some heated words, I admire and support the policies of NO ENDORSEMENT primaries that he and his Lehigh County supporters instituted. Let Republican Voters decide whom they want to represent them. We recall the disastrous effects of CorbettCawley’s endorsement of losers Steve Welch, Dave Freed, John Maher!  CorbettCawley = Loser.

Superior Court and county court judges will be on the ballot for the May 21 Republican Primary and the election provides a perfect opportunity for the grassroots to send a message to the uncaring establishment which does not listen to its own base, notes activist Bob Guzzardi.

Few pay attention to these races as important as they are, he says.

Rob Wyda, who served as a JAG officer in GITMO, Afghanistan and Iraq is the choice for Superior Court of those who care about this state and want to end business as usual, Guzzardi  says. The establishment candidate is Vic Stabile, a partner with uber-connected law firm Dilworth Paxson LLP.

Guzzardi has written an open letter to Stabile (below)  explaining why he can’t support him. Mostly it is due to those with whom he associates, namely the party establishment which is is in bed with Democrats when it comes from transferring wealth from the forgotten taxpayer to the politically connected, he says.

“These are the associates Vic Stabile has chosen; birds of a feather flock together,” Guzzardi said. “The leaders of both parties either don’t know where money comes from or don’t care. The difference between them is that those who make up the Republican constituency do, unlike the rank and file Democrats, and want to save the state and avoid the real pain that will come for all from economic irresponsibility.”

Guzzardi’s letter:

Birds of a Feather….You have chosen your associates and, although you are, clearly, intelligent, well-informed and very experienced, you have chosen to associate with obstinate, self-serving, incompetent blockheads who do not hear the anger and anguish of the grassroots, the Forgotten Taxpayers, and the middle class working people who are being exploited by ever escalating size and cost of government and are selling out the loyal and credulous Republican voter.

You may think it “guilt by association” but when you associate with the guilty, what is any common sense person to think: “birds of a feather flock together”.
And here are some of the people you are ‘guilty’ of associating with:

BETRAYED and Financially ABUSED

•     LeRoy Zimmerman profited from his position at Hershey Trust ( a charity for disadvantaged children or Republican slush fund)  “When Leroy S. Zimmerman was named in late 2002 to the board of the small state-chartered Pennsylvania bank that managed the assets of the Hershey charity for disadvantaged youth, the post paid about $35,000 a year and came with restrictions.
For the tax year that ended July 31, 2010, Zimmerman, 76, earned $500,000 – for the second consecutive year. His total compensation on Hershey-related boards in less than a decade is $1.9 million.” Bob Fernandez Inquirer 20 July 2011 Inquirer.

•     AND LeRoy Zimmerman, and many Republican Insiders, were silent as Hershey School assets and income were used to bail out Republican Insiders Bob Fernandez Inquirer 11 February 2011 (and five months later LeRoy Zimmerman resigns his well paid posts at Hershey!)
“The deal tossed a financial lifeline to 40 to 50 local businessmen and doctors who had invested in Wren Dale and faced substantial losses. One of them was Richard H. Lenny, then-chief executive officer of the Hershey Co. and a member of the charity board that approved the purchase.”  READ MORE Bob Fernandez Inquirer 3 October 2010  Not surprisingly, Milton Hershey School Will Close[money losing golf course for which Leroy Zimmerman and crony insiders overpaid Golf Course  READ MORE Bob Fernandez 15 February 2013

•      Harrisburg Bond Bailout was engineered by Republican lobbyists Stan Rapp and Greenlee Partners  and note involvement of John McNally, Andrew Giorgione, Jeff Haste Mike Pries, A.J.Marsico (Dauphin DA’s brother) Insiders Profit; The Forgotten Taxpayers of Pennsylvania pay for the fiscal profligacy of Harrisburg elected leaders…bankruptcy was  an option but then bondholders would have had to take a haircut;   Bondholders Happy; The Forgotten Taxpayer, not so much….

•    Senate Bonusgate NonInvestigation and Orie Sisters Conviction
CasablancaPa (27 February 2012)    On top of the Orie fiasco, Senate Rs awarded the largest bonuses of any in the General Assembly, to employees who did campaign work:
•    $22,500 to Mike Long, former top aide to then-Senate President Pro Tempore Robert Jubelirer of Blair County.
•    $19,647 to Drew Crompton, then a top lawyer on Jubelirer’s staff.
•    $15,000 to Erik Arneson, former chief of staff to then-Senate Majority Leader David Brightbill;

Shocked at corruption in Pennsylvania Senate, are we? See Turnpike Grand Jury Report 13 March 2013 and Attorney General’s Press Release and Brad Bumsted’s reference to the spirit of Senate bipartisanship

Robert Jubelirer whose former chief of staff was….Mike Long:  “It’s odd, though, that Mellow is the only elected official named in the report. During the past decade, Fumo and former Senate President Pro Tem Robert Jubelirer, R-Altoona, had the most influence at the Turnpike Commission. Jubelirer has not been accused of any wrongdoing.” READ MORE Tribune Review Brad Bumsted16 March 2013
Despite all this staring him in the face, Corbett never subpoenaed a single Senate R member or staffer;

eemed to have learned honest and “equal justice under law”     when their ox was gored. These are Democrats affiliated with Mike Veon  convicted of Bonusgate violations and and then another 1 to 4 years for BIG swindle  and Brett Cott (21 months to five years)

•    The House Republicans, who spent $30, 000 trashing the good name of a good man, now Representative John McGuiness who primaried and defeated Jubelirer Republican 34 year incumbent Rick Geist,  (for whom phony Charlie Gerow campaigned),  owe  The Forgotten Taxpayers of Pennsylvania TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS (AG Corbett’s Grand Jury Presentment PART 1,page 1, paragraph 3 – hat tip Signor Ferrari) (Grand Jury Report: Part 1, Part 2  & Part 3) and very informative press release. Then Speaker Perzel signed the $10,000,000 computer contracts for technology and expertise  was co signed by now Republican Speaker Sam Smith who, it seems, knew nothing.

•    Mike Long and Todd Nyquist    Two Faced Double Talkers, one could almost mistake them for Democrats but wait…they represent Union Aristocrat Wendell Young IV of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union(next to last page), currently, and vociferously and disruptively, opposing Liquor Store Privatization as well as the Corbett favorite Shell Oil (9 from last page).

Krystjan Callahan is Majority Leader Mike Turzai’s chief of staff and wife Megan Callahan is lobbyist with Long and Nyquist. Megan Crompton is wife of Senate Republican staffer Drew Crompton who was never investigated by AG for Bonusgate violations. Shohin Vance is grandson of faux conservative Republican Senator Patricia Vance.

•    These two cases are important because Article III is important. The Supreme Court have been too deferential to General Assembly’s excesses. This is how we got Gambling.
Vic Stabile provided  the links 2011 Superior Court case Sernovitz v Dershaw where Pennsylvania Constitution’s Article III, Section 3, Single Subject Rule, was upheld by Pennsylvania Superior Court in a case invalidating a section of  Act 47 of 1988  Abortion Control Act   and  Pennsylvania Association of Jury Commissioners v Commonwealth (Act 108 of 2011 Senate Fiscal Note)  where the Supreme Court upheld the Pennsylvania Constitution’s Single Subject Rule.

VIC STABILE: THESE ARE THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO ASSOCIATE WITH. BIRDS OF A FEATHER…
