John Kane Neglects Secret Daughter

The Democrat candidate for the 26th Pennsylvania Senate District has a secret daughter whom he has been neglecting it seems.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that Kristin Holgerson, 32, of Maryland has posted this on Facebook:

DELCO Friends & Family: In November you’re going to have to vote for a person for State Senate seat. One of these men is not who he says he is. He claims to be a family man, launching his campaign with a commercial with all of his children in it. Well, that commercial is missing someone. Me. As some of you already know, I never had a relationship with my father. I knew his name at a young age and around 20 I met him for the first and last time. After our meeting, despite telling me I could call him at any time, he changed his number and I haven’t heard from him since.

Apparently what set Ms. Holgerson off was Kane’s commercials portraying himself as a dedicated blue collar family man.

Are we really surprised?

Kane has an income of $277,000 from work related to managing the affairs of Plumber’s Local 690 of Philadelphia and Vicinity and $119,213 comes from co-chairing the union’s vacation, a job which he has told the IRS only requires from him one hour per week.

How is that anything but an indication of self-centered arrogance and shlock?

How is that anything other than proof positive he cares only for himself and doesn’t give a rat’s tail about the union guys who chip in to have him manage their affairs?

Kane’s Republican opponent is Tom McGarrigle, a guy who owns a well-liked garage on Woodland Avenue in Springfield and by all accounts is a dedicated blue collar family man.

We have been told a story will be running in the Delaware County Daily Times.

Corbett Third Debate Vs Wolf Tonight

Regina Scheerer reminds us that the third and final debate between Gov. Tom Corbett and Tom Wolf will be 7  tonight, Oct. 8,  on C-SPAN or on your computer at

We are obviously not big fans of Corbett  but he does trump a guy in bed with Pennsylvania’s anti-child educational establishment and whose  political backer is a California billionaire who wants to shut down Pennsylvania’s refineries, mines and stop the extraction of its natural gas.

You don’t think the PSEA is anti-child? Why does it exalt those who harm children for money? You don’t think a school strike harms children? You don’t think it’s about getting more money?

John Kane Compensation Challenge

We were challenged concerning the $277,000 taxable compensation we reported John Kane, who is the Democrat’s nominee for the 26th District State Senate race,  was receiving as business manager of Plumber’s Local 690 of Philadelphia and Vicinity.

Here you go.

Kane receives $156,537 in salary for his job as business manager and $119,213 as co-chairman of the union’s vacation fund, as per the IRS 990 form that is required to be filed by the vacation fund.

Vacation fund. He is taking $119,213 for running the vacation fund. Don’t you think this  be part of his already well-compensated job as the union’s business manager?

And if we are reading the 990 correctly he is only working one hour a week at it.

LOL. You still want to contribute to his campaign?

Kane says he will continue taking the money even if he should win the seat, which comes with a $84,012 salary and very nice benefits.

People like Kane are what make the rest of us poor.

Kane is seeking the seat being vacated by Republican Ted Erickson, a decent, honest guy. The Republican nominee is Delaware County Councilman Tom McGarrigle, another decent, honest guy who grew up in Springfield, attended a public vocational high school and runs a well-liked garage.

And for the rank and file of Local 690:  here is a list of the salaries of your leaders, which includes $1,431 in benefits for Kane not mentioned on the 990 form.

Note seven of them are making six figures. Are you really getting your money’s worth? Don’t think it would nice if you could actually withhold your dues rather than having them automatically deducted? You think maybe you might get better representation if you had this ability?

Dem Delaware County Hypocrisy

Some tidbits recently gleaned concerning this November’s battle for the Pennsylvania Legislature reveal that when it comes to hypocrisy the Keystone State’s Democrats take second place to no one.

The Democrats nominee to fill the 26th District Senate Seat being vacated by Republican Ted Erickson is John Kane, who is business manager of Plumber’s Local #690. Kane, gritty man of the people, has a taxable income of $277,000.

Sure is sweet to be a union official. He says he is not quitting if he should win the race and will keep the $80,000 salary that comes with the seat along with the other bennies.

That wouldn’t quite make him a one percenter but it would likely put him in the 2 percenter category, which is where he probably is now.

His opponent is Delaware County Councilman Tom McGarrigle, who grew up in Springfield, attended a public vocational high school and runs a well-liked garage.

Meanwhile, the D’s picked a full-blown one-percenter to challenge long-time incumbent Bill Adolph for the 165th District seat in the State House.

The candidate, Charles Hadley, is a retired venture capitalist from Radnor who apparently has a net worth of over $100 million.

If you want your freedom and don’t want to live in a land where you have to kiss the rings of the rich and connected vote Republican.

Corbett Says Common Core Will End

Embattled Gov. Tom Corbett released a statement yesterday, Sept. 8, in which he called for public review of the Common Core plan being implemented in Pennsylvania.

“Though Common Core began as a state-led initiative to ensure our public schools met the educational standards needed in the 21st century economy, the process has been overly influenced by the federal government,” Corbett said.  “Common Core has become nothing more than a top-down takeover of the education system.  It is nothing more than Obamacare for education.”

The release says this is the “final phase in his nearly three year effort to permanently roll back” the plan, which it says was implemented by Ed Rendell.


We say better late than never.

We say you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind’s blowing.

And we guess we won’t feel bad about voting for him now.

In other election news, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf has edited out of his ads an endorsement by Washington County (Pa) attorney and former Common Please Court judicial candidate Alan Benyak after it was revealed he appeared as “Mr. Cannibal” in a movie called “Breeding Farm” which has been described as a “twisted porn” film.

There are descriptions of the movie available and of what Benyak does, but we think we will leave them out.

Those crazy Democrats. The entire party should be just put to sleep out of mercy. Mercy for the nation, that is.

Gary Cobb Fights For Fathers

Gary Cobb Fights For Fathers

Former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Gary Cobb is seeking the vacated Congressional seat long held by Rob Andrews in the staunchly Democrat 1st District of New Jersey.

He’s running as a Republican. Cobb, like many, started off as a D went to the GOP  after watching how the policies of the Democrat Party destroyed African American families.

“(They were) an incentive for the man to leave the home, and it’s destroyed African-American families throughout the country,” he said.

“All my brothers and sisters have gone to college,” Cobb said. “The reason we were able to have some success was our dad was there, there was some discipline in the home.”

The 1st District includes Camden County and  parts of Burlington and Gloucester counties..

He will face state Sen. Donald Norcross, who is brother of George Norcross, the one-percenter Democrat power broker who just lost control of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News.

The publications’ parent company, Interstate General Media, is now under the sole control of H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest, who bought out the shares of Lewis Katz following his death.

Brat Scares Amnesty Establishment

Dave Brat’s earthshaking defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, June 10, in Virginia’s 7th District Congressional Republican primary should sound the siren for those who equate “immigration reform” as “amnesty, amnesty, amnesty or you’re a bigot.”

This would be most of the Republican establishment.

OK, you got your wake up call.

And here’s your bonus clue: instead of putting “amnesty” in the lead of your immigration reform proposals put “enforcement”. Work from the premise that our immigration and border control laws are necessary and just.

Really, simply say these words:  our immigration and border control laws are necessary and just.  Watch the mouths drop on the mainstream commentators and editorial writers. Watch them start to sputter. Watch the rest of America applaud.

Most of us conservatives don’t hate Mexicans — or  Irish, Chinese, Hondurans etc. who also have an illegal presence here. Most of us don’t think that they are evil people. Most of us understand that if we were in their shoes we might skirt the law to live in America if given the chance.

Imagine a red light. A driver who rolls through one is not a monster. But suppose  a cop rather than a ticket upon catching one gives him free food, health care and a college education. So much for orderly traffic. The system breaks down and the roads become unusable.

The first step in immigration reform should be to require that every government agency at every level have EVerify to check the immigration status of applicants.

Yes, this includes school districts.

The second step is to allow law enforcement officers at all levels to enforce the law they have sworn to duly uphold.

The third step is to impose painful sanctions on governments sworn to uphold the law who publicly declare they won’t. This means consequences for all who declare their cities to be sanctuaries. The consequences can include loss of funding and greater presence of federal law enforcement. Remember our immigration laws are just and necessary.

The fourth step is one of diplomacy aimed specifically at Mexico. Americans must be allowed to own property in Mexico along the border without being bound to a Mexican real estate bank. Mexico also must become safer. It had a murder rate as of 2012 of 22 per 100,000. This five times that of the United States which is 4.7 per 100,000. Mexico has strict gun control. We must push to get that nation to adopt the Second Amendment so they actually have the right to bear arms rather than just keep them in their homes. Oh, just imagine the heads that would spin when this is proposed. Yes, we must encourage the sane, law-abiding Mexicans who want to be left alone to be armed rather than arm the thugs in that nation which is perversely what our policy has been under the Obama administration. Finally, we have to bring home Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

At that point we can start talking about cutting some slack to those who have been living here illegally for a long time and have assimilated into this country as a productive member of their community. Note this would not include gang members.

California Billionaire Backs Wolf

California Billionaire Backs Wolf  –Maybe I’ll be voting for Tom Corbett after all.

Tom Wolf, the opponent of Pennsylvania’s embattled incumbent governor, is getting a  $50 million gift from Tom Steyer, an uber-liberal  billionaire from California who is fanatically opposed to the extraction of gas from Marcellus Shale.

Steyer is also promising to cough up another $50 million for Wolf via his NextGen Climate Action PAC.

If Wolf’s friends are people like this 1-percenter he’s not fit to be governor.
