Trump Unveils Child Care Program In Aston

Trump Unveils Child Care Program — It takes a village to win an election we suppose.

Ivanka Trump made the introduction to her father’s speech, tonight, Sept. 13, at the Aston Community Center in which he pitched radical new changes to the tax code to provide for care of children and dependent elderly.

The Donald had with him several congresswoman to emphasize the point, and gave credit to his daughter for plan.

Trump Unveils Child Care Program In AstonAnd the plan will allow parents — including stay-at-home moms — to deduct from their income taxes child care expenses for up to four children and elderly dependents. It would also  create new Dependent Care Savings Accounts (DCSAs) so that families can set aside extra money to foster their children’s development and offset elder care for their parents or adult dependents. It would also include regulatory reform to promote new family based and community based solutions, and also add incentives for employers to provide child care at the workplace. The money in these accounts could be used to pay for school choice and college education.

The plan would also guarantee six weeks of paid maternity leave  by amending the existing unemployment insurance (UI) that companies are required to carry. The benefit would apply only when employers don’t offer paid maternity leave, and would be paid for by offsetting reductions in the program so that taxes are not raised.

Two thirds of the cost of this plan will offset by “the increases in economic activity that accompany pro-growth tax reform, better trade deals, regulatory and immigration reform, and unleashing American energy,” according to the campaign. The remaining one third will be offset by minor changes in the current trajectory of spending for federal agency operations, excluding Defense, Veterans, Social Security and Medicare.


It’s still more realistic than anything the Democrats are offering. There is no way we are not voting for him so we grinning and bearing.

And maybe it will work.

More details of the plan can be found here.

The home owner stated he is a “yuge” Trump supporter but feels it is prudent to disagree with him on his latest proposal for tax payer funded, unemployment style insurance subsidies for maternity leave.

“Donald you can’t have it both ways,” the homeowner said. “You are either going to reduce the size of the IRS or you are going to expand it. Respectfully I strongly disagree with your tax proposal.”

Donald Trump himself picked Aston as the venue for tomorrow’s (Sept. 13) speech at the Aston Community Center, 7th Ward Commissioner Mike Higgins told us at yesterday’s 9/11 tribute at Veteran’s Memorial Garden at The Five Points.

Trump’s invitation-only speech will be streamed live 7:30 p.m., at this link.

Yesterday’s ceremony was held at 3 p.m. and commemorated the 15th Anniversary of the Radical Islamic Terrorist Attack. It was sponsored by local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts as well as American Legion Post 926.

Higgins was among the speakers as were State Senator Tom Killion, State Rep. Leanne Kruger-Braneky and a person from Congressman Patrick Meehan’s office.

All gave brief yet very meaningful speeches to an attentive audience.

Higgins said that it was his strong and sincere desire that our federal leaders call terrorism exactly what it is. Much applause followed.

Senior Pastor Rev. Thomas Haugh from Mount Hope Methodist Church gave the opening and closing prayers. The Sun Valley Choir sang our National Anthem as a very respectful crowd stood at attention and a local singer led the crowd in a rousing rendition of God Bless America.

Concerning Trump’s speech tomorrow, the commissioners we talked to said they expect the emphasis to be on family values. Seems very fitting as Aston is one of the oldest communities in the Commonwealth incorporating in 1688 and home to many families and small businesses.

Mexico Can Pay For Wall

Mexico Can Pay For Wall — Donald Trump says the wall he is proposing to stop the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants from Mexico will cost between $8 billion and $13 billion. Mexico Can Pay For Wall

He said he will get Mexico to pay for it.

How? Well, it’s not as though there isn’t a lot of money stashed away in our southern sister.

More practically he notes that Mexico receives about $24 billion annually from nationals working (or using social services) here and that by making a small change in the law to include money transfer firms as federal institutions, he could put an end to that.

Por lo tanto, the wall is paid.

Democrat Corruption Pandering Finally Called Out

Democrat Corruption Pandering Finally Called Out — Donald Trump spoke last night, Aug. 16, in West Bend, Wis., just outside riot-torn Milwaukee.

Democrat Corruption Pandering Finally Called OutWhat he said is worth reading again. It’s worth reading a thousand times, in fact, and making every decent Democrat you know read it:

The other party – the Democratic Party – nominated the personification of special interest corruption. The Democratic Party rigged the nomination to give it to Hillary Clinton, thus giving the soul of their party this year to the special interests.

I am running to listen to your voice, to hear your cries for help. The quiet voices in our society, not the loudest demonstrators, need to have their demands heard.

Jobs. Safety. Opportunity. Fair and equal representation.

We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes, not as individual human beings worthy of a better future. She doesn’t care at all about the hurting people of this country, or the suffering she has caused them.

The African-American community has been taken for granted for decades by the Democratic Party. It’s time to break with the failures of the past – I want to offer Americans a new future.

It is time for rule by the people, not rule by special interests.

Every insider, getting rich off of our broken system, is throwing money at Hillary Clinton.

The hedge fund managers, the Wall Street investors, the professional political class.

It’s the powerful protecting the powerful.

Insiders fighting for insiders.

I am fighting for you.

Donald Trump Conservative?

Donald Trump Conservative
Donald Trump Conservative?

Donald Trump Conservative? — The sagacious Mychal Massie pondered the question as to whether Donald Trump sees himself as a “conservative” and concluded that he doesn’t.

And he applauded it.

And we agree.

Massie said that Trump is a pragmatist in the good sense of the word i.e. that he doesn’t view solutions to problems via the lens of an ideology.

He wrote:

Viewing problems from a liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending, globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff – appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.


Purity tests lead to inversion of values. The end is forgotten and only the means is exalted. Freedom and wealth are the end, the ball upon which one should keep one’s eye on. Free markets are the means, the way of achieving this goal. When one starts questioning things that are done in the name of “free markets” such as open borders, bad trade deals, “The New World Order” and even the expansion of long-obsolete NATO, and is attacked as being “non conservative” then one knows the inversion has happened, and that the emperor is not merely not wearing a “conservative” robe but is buck naked.

Massie is an ordained minister who spent 13 years in full-time Christian ministry. He is founder and chairman of the Racial Policy Center which advocates for a colorblind society.  He is the former National Chairman of Project 21 -The National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives.

The column which inspired this article can be found here and is well worth reading.

Massie, in fact, has a lot of good stuff and his site is worth checking out.

Trump West Chester Excitement

Trump West Chester Excitement
Trump fans remained in good humor despite not being able to see their guy in West Chester.

Trump West Chester Excitement — Donald Trump’s rally today, April 25, in West Chester, Pa. was way overbooked and while 3,500 filled the venue at the eponymous university’s Hollinger Field House thousands more mingled outside unable to get in.

They still made themselves useful, however, facing off against a contingent of protestors — many of whom were bused in — on opposite sides of South Church Street.

Trump West Chester Excitement
Anti-trump protestors. Some held signs preaching love. Others held signs filled with insulting obscenities.
Trump West Chester Excitement
An anti-Trumper tries to be edgy by pretending to hit golf balls off this bus which brought many of the protestors to the site. The bus carried the Trump logo along with middle-schoolish sexual innuendos.

A line of police from several departments including Pennsylvania State Police, Montgomery County and Phoenixville kept the sides apart.

Except for some chanting, which was more often good-natured than not, nothing untoward was seen happen by this reporter.

Say what you want even missing it was more interesting than a Kasich rally.

Cruz Kasich Play Survivor

Cruz Kasich Play Survivor — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich announced an alliance, yesterday, April 24, to keep Donald Trump from getting enough delegates to win the Republican presidential nomination in July.

They are missing that the American public is not watching “Survivor” but “The Apprentice” concerning this process, and not with The Donald playing The Donald but they.

If it is perceived that the party powers pick the nominee through backroom deal-making, the little guy and gal who had so excitedly voiced the choice they are ignoring  will look squarely at the Republican Party and say “You’re Fired.”

They will stay home and not vote for the congressional candidates, the senate candidates and the state legislative candidates. It could very well mean the end of the GOP.

People are sick of the political class. They are sick of how they use the spending that has gained us a $19.25 trillion debt to create filthy rich lifestyles for themselves. They are sick of their demand for approval of  strange and intolerant sexual lifestyles. They are sick of their unwillingness to confront an aggressive and violent political philosophy that stands against everything upon which this country was founded.

John Kasich has no chance at a popular nomination and should drop out. If Ted Cruz should shine tomorrow in Pennsylvania and the other primary states, win California and become the nominee at a contested convention, most will find that to be fair.

But if he gets it by playing kindergarten games it is over, and this alliance with Kasich is an indication that that is what he plans to do.

Regarding tomorrow’s Pennsylvania primary, the delegates pledging themselves to Trump in the 7th Congressional District are Ralph Wike of Springfield and Jan Ting of Haverford Township.

A list of delegates statewide is here.

Here is Trump’s statement on the Cruz Kasich Survivor Alliance.

Cruz Kasich Play Survivor It is sad that two grown politicians have to collude against one person who has only been a politician for ten months in order to try and stop that person from getting the Republican nomination.

Senator Cruz has done very poorly and after his New York performance, which was a total disaster, he is in free fall and as everyone has seen, he does not react well under pressure. Also, approximately 80 percent of the Republican Party is against him. Governor Kasich, who has only won 1 state out of 41, in other words, he is 1 for 41 and he is not even doing as well as other candidates who could have stubbornly stayed in the race like him but chose not to do so. Marco Rubio, as an example, has more delegates than Kasich and yet suspended his campaign one month ago. Others, likewise, have done much better than Kasich, who would get slaughtered by Hillary Clinton once the negative ads against him begin. 85 percent of Republican voters are against Kasich.

Collusion is often illegal in many other industries and yet these two Washington insiders have had to revert to collusion in order to stay alive. They are mathematically dead and this act only shows, as puppets of donors and special interests, how truly weak they and their campaigns are. I have brought millions of voters into the Republican primary system and have received many millions of votes more than Cruz or Kasich. Additionally, I am far ahead of both candidates with delegates and would be receiving in excess of 60 percent of the vote except for the fact that there were so many candidates running against me.

Because of me, everyone now sees that the Republican primary system is totally rigged. When two candidates who have no path to victory get together to stop a candidate who is expanding the party by millions of voters, (all of whom will drop out if I am not in the race) it is yet another example of everything that is wrong in Washington and our political system. This horrible act of desperation, from two campaigns who have totally failed, makes me even more determined, for the good of the Republican Party and our country, to prevail!
