War With Texas
GOP Catching Up To Dems In Bucks Registration — Republican activist Scott Presler reported on X, yesterday, that Bucks County, Pa is just 2,651 voters away from flipping back to the GOP.
On Nov. 29, the Democrats had a 4,033 vote lead.
And Centre County is just 1,362 voters away from flipping Luzerne County is but 3,814 from flipping.
Pennsylvania Lincoln Dinner Gossip — Here’s some gossip from the Pennsylvania Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner, Feb. 2.
When keynote speaker Ben Carson threw a zinger at Nikki Haley, 10 state committee people stood up and left. This included Philly GOP Chairman Vince Fenerty and his table.
Bucks County Chairwoman Pat Poprik anticipates strong voter turnout. It was revealed, though, that she and others in leadership are being sued by “the far right MAGA group there” over access to petition signing meetings.
Whoever could they be? Betcha they are friends of ours. Go get ’em Barry, Dawn and Andy.
There are primary battles in Bucks for delegates, committee seats and, of course, congress.
A primary battle for congress looms in Delco as well for the the 5th District seat held by Democrat Mary Gay Scanlon. It’s between Dasha Pruett and Alfie Goodwin. The Delco GOP has endorsed Alfie.
In Philly, Sam Oropeza-backed Patrick Gushue is taking on party-backed Aizaz Gill to unseat Democrat Kevin Boyle in the 172nd District State House race.
The competition is good news and shows that Pennsylvania’s GOP is far from dead.
One point of concern, however, is Montgomery County. They are short committee people and can’t find candidates for four State House seats in the eastern part of the county.
On the other hand, there is battle for the Swarthmore Western committeeman seat between Bob Small and Jim Rivello.
It is speculated that Rivello is being backed by “far right MAGA groups.”
Bob, however, is one of the excellent writers at BillLawrenceOnline.com and we hope all vote for him.
Senate candidate Dave McCormick gave an hour-long speech which was apparently well received. We are going to have trouble filling in his block, and we mean for the general election.
We like air conditioning and we don’t want crickets on our menu.
By the way, Oropeza, who just ran for Philly Council, and David Oh, who had been a long-time member of Philadelphia Council, are moving to Delco this year. They cite better schools for their kids and less crime.
Free And Equal Debate Series Has Begun
By Bob Small
The Free and Equal Debate Series, founded by the Free and Equal Elections Foundation, has been presenting presidential debates since 2008. The major party candidates have never participated but those of the three largest alternative parties — Constitution, Green, and Libertarian — have. The 2024 debate season began Jan. 18.
This debate was moderated by F&E founder Christina Tobin and Kwame Jackson.
The four candidates were Gabriel Cornejo, Frankie Lozada, Stephen Lyons, and Jason Palmer.
These were selected by the Free and Equal voting procedure, explained on their website. Hopefully, the Feb. 29 debate will have more diversity. It can be watched on Rumble and information about it can be found here: https://freeandequal.org/debate/2024-free-equal-presidential-debate/
Concerning the first debate, Gabriel Cornejo of Nevada says he’s running because “our ship is sinking” and he’d “rather stop the people drilling the holes causing the leak than enjoy the music on the way down.”
He describes how, in support of a classmate undergoing chemotherapy, he and 13 other classmates and teachers shaved their heads “to let our friend know he wasn’t alone.”
His Freedom Dividend includes a “$1,000 a month for every person over 18 to spend”, as a way of operating the country like a business.
Steve P. Lyons of Maryland is the only candidate to admit failing second grade, though probably not the only one. He has a list of 19 issues. He says if he becomes president he will prepare for the worst.
“I will have a meeting with all governors, and we will put a 5,000 person task force in place per state,” he says.
He also says he will buy back farmland.
“We will buy every farmland that is up for sale and put legal immigrant farmers and croppers on the lands to allow those lands to flourish with all different types of crops, fruit, and meat. “
He has been a master plumber and gas fitter for over 46 years.
