Left To Play Pretend To Try To Blemish Tea Party

Left To Play Pretend To Try To Blemish Tea Party — If you should see some misspelled sign praising Hitler at the next Tea Party event or hear some obnoxious racial epitaph it appears the source will far more likely  be a college professor and socialist sympathizer than an actual Tea Party supporter.

Opponents of free speech and honest dissent are claiming on a website called CrashTheTeaParty.Org to have infiltrated Tea Party meetings and plan to “act on behalf of the Tea Party in ways which exaggerate their leastappealing qualities (misspelled protest signs, wild claims in TVinterviews, etc.) to further distance them from mainstream America anddamage the public’s opinion of them.  We will also use the insideinformation that we have gained in order to disrupt and derail theirplans.”

Strong School Choice Advocates In Both Pa. Gov Primaries

Maybe there are Democrats with some sense. One of the four seeking that party’s nod for governor in the May 18 primary is being strongly backed by school choice advocates. This means he actually cares about children and is willing to oppose those whose goal is to collect a fat paycheck and bennies for pretending to which, of course, is the usual Democrat constituency.

The candidate is state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams who represents the 8th District which covers southwest Philadelphia and southeast Delaware County.

Williams has been given $1.5 million by Jeff Greenberg, Arthur Dantchik and Jeff Yass who are the founders of the Bala Cynwyd investment firm Susquehanna International Group, and who are major school choice advocates. The money was funneled to Williams via political action committees supporting school choice and charter schools.

A strong school choice proponent is running on the Republican side as well. Underdog candidate state Rep Sam Rohrer, who represents the 128th District in Berks County, authored the EducationalImprovement Tax Credit Program, which may be the most successful school choice program in the country and is something he would like to expand.

Casino-Connected Dem DA Indicts Supreme’s Senator Sis And Other Sis

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala, today, filed criminal charges against state Sen. Republican Whip Jane Orie (R-40) and Janine Orie, an aide to state Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin, who is their sister. 

Jane is accused of letting her staff do non-legislative work during business hours for political campaigns for herself and Joan between 2001 and 2009.  Joan was elected to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court last November.

Assistance included  creating campaign materials for Joan on the senator’s district office equipment,including scanners, computers and photocopiers.

Janine is accused of masterminding the operation along with Jane’s chief of staff Jamie Pavlot, who appears to be cooperating with Zappala.

The actual charges are theft of services, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence,criminal conspiracy and violations of the state office and employee ethics act.

Feds Foil Fast Eddie’s Plot To Toll I-80

The U.S. Department of Transportation, yesterday, kiboshed Gov. Rendell’s plan to turn I-80 into a toll road saying that the law only allows
tolls on an interstate highway to be used for maintenance of that highway.

Rendell said he wanted to use the money for SEPTA projects and maintenance of other roads although forgive me if I suspect that he saw it as a fungible stash to be used for pension fund bailouts, raises for state workers and rewarding connected types with jobs.

Today’s Philadelphia Inquirer is whining on the front page about the fed action and describing all the wonderful things that will now not happen such as new smart-card fare system for SEPTA and the reconstruction of the City
Hall station.

Poor babies.

You think maybe they could have pointed out that travel time up north won’t be unnecessarily extended and the cost of delivery of things like food to supermarkets wouldn’t be artificially inflated.

Or you think that maybe they might have pointed out that some money for things it thinks are so wonderful could be found by simply ending prevailing wage requirements for municipal projects or  the right to strike for all government workers like those at SEPTA.

Report Claims Pa Supremes Senator Sis Faces Indictment

KDKA is reporting that an indictment will be forthcoming for Pennsylvania State Sen. Jane Orie (R-40), who is that body’s majority whip and the sister of state  Supreme Court Judge Joan Orie Melvin.

Gold Conspiracies, Hit And Run Crashes 

Gold Conspiracies, Hit And Run Crashes 

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission was told at March 25 hearing that the price of gold was being artificially and illegally  suppressed by JPMorganChase.

The claim was made by Bill Murphy, chairman of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, who has long said the price of gold was being held down to sustain a financial bubble.

This time Murphy unveiled the name of a whistle-blower, Andrew Maguire, a London-based metals trader, who he said had emailed investigators about looming market manipulation which came to pass.

The day after the hearing, Maguire and his wife were injured in a bizarre hit-and-run accident in London which led to a wild police chase involving patrol cars and helicopters, and the arrest of the driver of the striking car.

The name of that driver has not been reported nor have any charges. The Maguires were hospitalized with minor injuries and released on March 28.

The left-leaning firedoglake.com was among the first to report the allegations of Murphy and Maguire. It’s now starting to bubble up in more mainstream publications.

Does Obama Hate White People Or Is He Simply Incompetent?

Does Obama Hate White People Or Is He Simply Incompetent? — President Barack Obama checked the box on his census form “Black, African Am., or Negro” and only that box.

The Census Bureau is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce which Obama oversees as president.

Here is how the reference book created by the Census Bureau says the census race question should be addressed:

The race question must be answered for each member of the household. Mark all  boxes for the appropriate races.

Mark the “White” box if this person has origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. This includes people who indicate their race as “White” or report entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Near Easterner, Arab, or Polish.

Mark the “Black, African Am., or Negro” box if this person has origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa. This includes people who indicate their race as “Black, African American, or Negro,” or provide written entries such as African American, Afro-American, Kenyan, Nigerian, or Haitian.

Obama is more than half white as per the census directions since his mother was entirely of European background while his father’s side includes Arab blood. For some reason, however, he declined to follow his own directions by checking the white box along with the black one.

Maybe he’s just a clueless incompetent who can’t follow directions, which is the explanation to which I lean.

Or maybe he just doesn’t like white people which should be troubling to the vast majority of Americans who happen to be white.

The Party Of The Sky Is Falling And Guam Is Capsizing

It’s been all over the WorldWideWeb but fans have told me they have yet to see the video of a U.S. congressman expressing concern to a U.S. admiral during a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee that the island of Guam may “tip over and capsize”.

So, here is one of the many cuts of it on YouTube.

The congressman was Hank Johnson, the Democrat who represents the 4th District of Georgia. The admiral was Robert F. Willard, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, and who, btw, played the MiG pilot in the 1986 movie Top Gun.

The hearing happened March 25. Johnson was the first member of the Georgia congressional delegation to endorse Barack Obama for president.

Some have come to the defense of Johnson saying  that the hepatitis C from which he suffers has  diminished his mental capability. Joyous. We have someone with a significantly diminished mental capability writing and voting for the laws under which we must live.

And Democrats are OK with that.

Are we surprised?

Revenue Way Off In Pa. As Obamanomics Grinds Its Heel


Obamanomics continues to take its toll on Pennsylvania as the nation continues to suffer through the Great Dempression.

The Keystone State collected $3.9 billion in general fund revenue in March which was $243 million less than anticipated.
Year-to-date collections are $19.9 billion, which is $719.6 million, or
3.5 percent, below estimate, the state Revenue Department said April 2.

The sales tax brought in $569 million for March or $50.9 million less than expected. Sales tax receipts for the year are $5.9 billion which is $316.2 million off estimates.  State officials said the snow kept people inside in February,
meaning they spent less money. 

Personal income tax revenue for march was actually $57.7 million more than expected coming in at $811.9 million. Could it be that all the unemployed had time to do their income tax earlier? Ah, that was just being mean. Year-to-date personal income tax collections are at $6.8 billion which is $135.9 million less than hoped.

Corporate taxes in March were $264.2 billion off estimate coming in at $2.3 billion. Year-to-date collections are at $3.5 billion which is $283.2 million — or 7.5 percent — off estimate.

You can say people aren’t dying to pay their taxes here. Inheritance tax collections for March were $68.2 million or $5.1 million below estimate. YTD is $545.7 million or $13 million below estimate.

So how are we going to pay for all that looming pension pain? or that $1.2 billion in new spending that Gov. Rendell is seeking?

Rohrer Gets Bachmann Endorsement


GOP gubernatorial candidate  Sam Rohrer has gained the endorsement of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN6) who has been called the second most dangerous woman in American.

Rohrer, who is  the  representative for the 128th District in the State House and Republican chairman for the House Finance Committee, faces party-endorsed state Attorney General Tom Corbett in the May 18 primary.

Mrs. Bachmann met Rohrer in 1998 when Rohrer went to Minnesota to describe federal mandates regarding schools. She says it was he who inspired her to run for office as a state senator.

Rohrer will speak 7 p.m., April 5 at West Chester Christian School, 1237 Paoli Pike.

It won’t be the most entertaining night of your life but it will certainly be educational and it’s education you should quickly acquire unless it is your desire to live in poverty and servitude.
