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.

Devil Loses In Georgia Again

Devil Loses In Georgia Again

The devil went down to Georgia
He was lookin’ for a seat to steal
He was in a bind
‘Cause he was way behind
And he was willin’ to make a deal

When he came upon this young man
Wiping his nose and picking his snot
And the devil jumped
Up on a Starbucks booth
And said, “boy, let me tell you what

I guess you didn’t know it
But I’m a Democrat too
And if you’d care to take a dare, I’ll do a favor for you

The boy said, “my name’s Jonny
And I like the way that sounds
Let’s fill the hole
Who needs a soul
Let’s turn this thing around.”

The devil opened up his case
And he said, “I’ll start this show.”
And the media came swarming down
And Hollywood was aglow.

It looked it was a sure thing
Morning Joe made an evil hiss
And Rachel Maddow joined in
And it sounded something like this

When the devil finished
Jonny said I got this thing won
Everybody hates Trump
The voting is already done.

But the voting hadn’t started
The Donald’s more popular than some think
And the night was quick
And Handel won in an almost easy blink

The devil bowed his head
Because he knew that he’d been beat
And gave a kick to Jonny’s butt
With one of his cloven feet

Jonny said “Hey, you were the one with fix
I did my best
So I failed the test
I don’t even live in District 6.”

Britain Got More Conservative?

Britain Got More Conservative?

Britain Got More Conservative? — Call it WINNING. Last night’s election in the United Kingdom saw the well-heeled establishment Conservative Party lose its absolute majority albeit it remains the largest party in Parliment at 317 seats versus 261 for second place, well-heeled establishment Labor.

326 seats are needed to form a government.

It appears they are going to get them from the Northern Ireland-based Democrat Union Party. While the DUP wants an open border with the rest of Ireland, it does want out of the European Union. It also opposes abortion and gay marriage and is skeptical of global warming.

It is very likley that Britain just got more conservative.

Britain Got More Conservative?


Progressive Disrupters Unlike Tea Party

Progressive Disrupters Unlike Tea Party — The establishment media is attempting to paint the recent organized disruptions by largely paid operatives  of events sponsored by Republican legislators as being akin to the successful Tea Part movement that started in 2009. Royal Brown III has created this chart to show they are nothing at all alike and will ultimately fail.


Tea Party Movement

Leftist Movement

Source of Members

Grassroots movement which sprang spontaneously from conservative “we the people” without major organizational efforts – no Central Organization or official 3d Party called the Tea Party

Astroturf not grassroots came about by Trump’s victory over HRC- Centrally Organized by such groups as Obama’s Organizing for Action wit over 32,000 members & 250 offices; over 100 leftist groups part of George Soros’s Open Society Foundation; new group Indivisible which has a 25 page Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda including disrupting Town Halls, etc.


No funding from large benefactors or groups -funding from individual members of Tea Party movement

Funding from large Benefactors like George Soros and his Open Society Foundation and the CEO of Progressive Insurance & others. Professional organizers paid; some demonstrators paid as much as $1500 day (per Rush Limbaugh).


No formal advertising; spread by word of mouth; mostly homemade signs at demonstrations; demonstrators not paid

Paid advertising thru media; Professionally made, fill in blank signs often made ahead of event; demonstrators often paid by Soros or Soros funded groups

Violence, Law Breaking

None – only violence done by leftist plants.

Some Demonstrations turned into riots with violence against people, destruction of property – examples Washington DC Women’s March (over 200 arrested & charged) & Berkeley – no arrests because of orders of Berkely President & Mayor

Media Coverage

Sparse or downplayed – examples – Trump Rallies-sizes downplayed; more attention paid to Demonstrators than supporters by MSM – often Fake News

Wide coverage such as recent Town Halls by Republicans where protestors disrupted free speech & MSM mislead readers/viewers that Obamacare a good thing

Impact on Voters

Republicans won back House in 2010; won back Senate & a Supermajority in House in 2012; won Presidency with Trumps 306 EC votes; retained House & Senate; 33 Governorships; all but 4 State Congresses; plus an additional 1000 state seats in 2016

Irrelevant that Trump lost Popular vote by 2.5 M all of which can be attributed to CA & much of these votes made by illegal aliens–proof over 3 M illegal aliens registered

Trump lost Popular Vote in 2016 and is not the legitimate POTUS which is a False Narrative


Tea Party Movement

Leftist Movement

Condition of Area in which Protest/Demonst ration Occurred

Always left cleaner than found the area. No cost to city for clean-up

Always leave a mess in area they are demonstrating in and over at high cost to city for clean-up.

Stay Within Laws & Ordinances

Always including obtaining any necessary permits and staying within approved area. Respect the rights of people driving in area to be able to pass on way to work or wherever their destination.

Often violate laws and ordinances such as blocking traffic on busy streets & highways – little regard for the convenience of others or ability to get to work


Feature Regular Folks “we the people”

Often involve celebrities such as liberal Congresspersons, Hollywood Actors & others from entertainment industry like professional sports


Civilized actions without lewd language or gestures

Often use lewd gestures and profanity even in the presence of children or they have coached children to do the same

Topics/Themes of Demonstrations

Pro-America, Pro-Constitution, Pro-Life, Pro LE, Pro- 2A, Cut Taxes, enforce laws including immigration, anti-illicit drugs, full vetting of migrants from dangerous countries, anti-Obmacare

Anti-American, Pro-Choice, BLM/anti-LE, Pro-Gun Control, Pro- illegal aliens (undocumented migrants), pro-migrants from dangerous countries, Pro- Obamacare

Congressional Actions related to POTUS Inaugurations & Cabinet Appointees

1. No Republicans boycotted the Inauguration of President Obama for both terms.

2. There was bipartisan support in the Senate to Confirm POTUS Obama’s Cabinet appointees and the process was completed without extraordinary delays.

3. Both of Obama’s SCOTUS appointees were confirmed by the Senate without serious delays or protests. The nuclear option did not have to be used.

1. 65 Democrats boycotted the Inauguration of President Trump including most in the House Black Caucus.

2. Democrats in the Senate have “slow walked” and delayed POTUS Trump’s Cabinet appointees in an unprecedented stall including entire committees boycotting hearings.

3. POTUS Trump’s nominee for SCOTUS Judge Gorsuch has run into serious opposition which may require the use of the “nuclear option” to confirm


Tea Party Movement

Leftist Movement

Calls for Impeachment

Although there were calls for Obama’s impeachment by concerned citizen members of the Tea Party there were no serious calls by Republican Congresspersons for his impeachment.

Numerous calls for impeachment by Democrat Congresspersons have already been heard on over the national MSM.

Media Coverage

The MSM coverage of the Tea Party Movement has been and continues to be either vastly negative with Fake News inserted or non-existent. Town Hall meetings attended by conservatives who have been civil in their questions and discourse have been little covered.

The MSM shares the leftist agenda and has been mostly positive about the leftist protests & demonstrations with very little criticism or coverage of the lawless outbreaks. They have covered the disruptions of Town Hall meetings held by Republicans.

Election Legitimacy

The Tea Party movement did not challenge the legitimacy of POTUS Obama’s election and re-election except to point out the many examples of voter fraud and illegal alien registration to vote. There were no challenges to the Electoral College.

The left has repeatedly challenged the legitimacy of POTUS Trump’s election despite his overwhelming 306 EC votes using the irrelevant popular vote as their guideline and many are now calling to abolish or change the EC system.

Tar Feathers Supply Demand

Tar Feathers Supply Demand — Politicians beware. Bill Denison has informed us that the price of tar (asphalt) and feathers have increased drastically over the last eight years indicating much greater demand for them.

Tea Party Pro Labor

A claim  shouted by those whose luxurious lifestyles are based on government — either directly or via special privileges such as mandated dues –  is that  Tea Party types are anti-labor and anti-union. Tea Party Pro Labor

They are not. They are anti-hypocrisy and anti-corruption. Most believe that collective bargaining is a very good thing in many circumstances and that labor laws have made our lives generally better.

When they hear but silence, however, from organized labor when American workers are made to train their foreign replacements;  when they see the hipster doofus with the Foxconn-made iPhone demanding the hard-working pizza shop owner  pay his staff wages he can’t afford; and when they are confronted by those with $477,591 pensions demanding that working families cough up another 1K to keep their pensions funded, they fully understand what the union leaders and their progressive allies are about, and fully understand that they must be fought.

Anyway, here is the latest illustration of the character of those imposing “the progressive” agenda upon us. The Philadelphia Federation of Teachers is among the big-government special interest groups fighting the mild state pension reforms being pushed by Republicans in Harrisburg. The reforms would  stop existing employees from spiking their their average salaries and put new state workers and public school teachers in a 401K type program.

What kind of pension plan does the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers offer its employees? That’s exactly right LOL. Can you spell “hypocrisy”? I knew you could.

That those proclaiming themselves “progressives” are thoughtless people who don’t care a whit about anyone but themselves is something to take to the bank.

Happy Independence Day 2015

A few July 4 facts courtesy of the Delaware County Patriots. AmericanFlag

  • There were 56 signers to the Declaration of Independence.
  • Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston comprised the Committee of Five that drafted the Declaration. Jefferson, regarded as the strongest and most eloquent writer, wrote most of the document.
  • John Hancock, President of the Second Continental Congress, was the first signer to the Declaration of Independence. He did so in an entirely blank space making it the largest and most famous signature — hence the term John Hancock, which is still used today as a synonym for signature.
  • Benjamin Franklin (age 70), who represented Pennsylvania, was the oldest of the signers. Edward Rutledge (age 26), of South Carolina, was the youngest.
  • Two future presidents signed, John Adams (second President) and Thomas Jefferson (third President). Both died on the 50th anniversary of signing the Declaration (July 4, 1826).
  • Robert Livingston, who represented New York, was on the Committee of Five that drafted the Declaration of Independence but was recalled by his state before he could sign it.
  • Charles Carroll, who represented Maryland, was the last surviving signer of the Declaration. He died in 1832 at the age of 95.
