Stan Casacio Launches 4th District Write-In Campaign

Stan Casacio Launches 4th District Write-In Campaign — Stan Casacio, who perceptively launched a GOP primary challenge to Pennsylvania’s then 7th District incumbent congressman Pat Meehan two years ago,   — it sure would have been nice if he won, right? — has launched a write-in campaign for the May 15 GOP congressional primary to challenge Dan David, who is the only name on that GOP ballot for what is now the 4th District, after the court-mandated shuffling.

It should be noted that Joe Billie, who was preparing a primary challenge to Meehan before his resignation and before the redistricting, has also said he is running a write-in campaign for what is now the 5th District. The only GOP name on the ballot there is Pearl Kim.

The new 4th and 5th districts skew far more heavily Democrat than the old 7th District did.

Here is Stan’s explanation as to why he’s doing it:

By Stan Casacio

Two years ago, I challenged Pat Meehan in a primary. I knew it would be difficult to argue for conservative realism, common sense and fairness against an entrenched establishment “Run for the Hills” Republican.

Recently, many people who supported me two years ago have called asking me to run again on a grass roots “write in” campaign. It is very humbling when people who believe in the American Dream, like I do, call to say they want me to represent Pennsylvania’s new 4th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

It is deeply concerning to me that achievement of the American Dream – the freedom and opportunity to realize happiness and prosperity through personal initiative – is now in jeopardy. Clearly, the establishment Republican Party has for the most part abandoned the fight for equal justice for all, the right to life, and the right to protect yourself and your family. It has supported increased taxes and spending at local, state and federal levels. The establishment Republican Party did not veto Obamacare when it had the opportunity, did not fight to protect our boarders from illegal crossings, and has stood aside or actually participated in the witch-hunt against President Trump. These actions and many others threaten the opportunity for citizens to pursue the American Dream.

The new federal budget steals our hard-earned income and uses it for purposes we oppose. It continues funding of Planned Parenthood, for example, which stops the life of unborn children. If wealthy billionaire liberal Democrats want Planned Parenthood to continue they should fund it themselves. They should not use our taxes because many of us are pro-life and oppose abortion on moral and religious grounds.

Sadly, there are three legal systems operating in the U.S. – one for people who are wealthy, powerful and well-connected, one for liberal Democrats, and one for the rest of us.

Frankly, I have had enough of gutless Republican legislators who stand for nothing, because that’s the politically shrewd thing to do, and they accomplish nothing that their constituents want!

I believe the strength of America is that we love to chart our own course in life. We were born to do this – our parents, grandparents and so many other immigrants came here from all over the world because only in America can a person from an ordinary background enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

I also believe that liberalism and the establishment politicians of both parties pass laws that undermine our Constitution, take away our rights, and threaten to replace our customs and traditions with socialism. Americans believe that nothing is right if it is morally wrong. Think for a moment about the abysmal failure of liberal, socialist countries. Take Venezuela, for example. A country once thriving is now steeped in poverty and lawlessness. Liberals and establishment types believe that we all must think and act the same and when we don’t, they create new laws to take away more of our rights.

What to do? I am reaching out to you because you are politically interested and active to some degree. A write-in campaign is hard to win. It truly is grass roots work. Success requires a driving force of supporters who believe in the massage and the messenger. If I win this write-in campaign, first, we will all make history! Second, I will take on the challenges we face with common sense and a firm commitment to uphold the American Dream.

A few closing points:

  • I will always refer to the money the government takes from us as taxes! Politicians always talk about revenue to the government – government does not produce anything other than paper work and more regulations. Adding more regulations means taking more rights and money from us.
  • I will recognize that there are males and females – and there are differences among them. Members of both sexes deserve respect and equal opportunity, not because they are women or men but because they are us – the human species.
  • I will do everything I can as your legislator to protect life, and not harm or destroy it. Our country spends billions to find life on other planets but neglects and mistreats people and the environment on earth.
  • Our borders are entry points for drugs and bad actors. We need to know who will come into the United States to do us harm and who wishes to join us as citizens or visitors to live peacefully among us and help make our cities and towns safe and prosperous. Drug cartels make billions buying off the politicians, judges and other public officials. The opioid crisis is horrific; it is killing our youth and must be ended. Sanctuary cities are drug distribution points. I will work to stop illegal aliens from entering our country and bring justice to those engaged in drug trafficking!

Alex Charlton Accomplishments Via Campaign Lit
Regina Scheerer, also a nice person but with actual accomplishments.

Alex Charlton Accomplishments Via Campaign Lit — We just got a piece of campaign literature from incumbent 165th District Pennsylvania Representative Alex Charlton.

It says he’s a devoted husband and father of three daughters, is a life-long resident of Delaware County and is a graduate of West Chester University and Penncrest High School

It pointed out that he is State Sen. Tom McGarrigle’s former chief of staff, had been president of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, was a former board member of the YMCA of Delaware County and once chaired Values into Action, an organization for the physically and mentally challenged.

Those are nice things. Alex is a nice guy. But so what? How is that helping cut the cost of the new Springfield High School by many millions?

Alex’s Republican primary opponent, Regina Scheerer, is a nice person too.  She is a wife, mother and grandmother and she has lived in Springfield for 40 years which is much longer than Alex has. Unlike Alex, though, her career did not involve politics. Regina is a retired middle school math teacher. Most will say that trumps being a senator’s chief of staff when it comes to understanding the needs of the people.

Regina gets the cost of wasteful spending and the burden it imposes. She gets and is willing to fight the corrupting influence of special interests. She understands that it is the elected official that is the servant and not the other way around.

She says she will not take the pension offered to Pennsylvania legislators.

What is interesting in Alex’s campaign lit is that he didn’t list any legislation he introduced nor boast about any of his votes.

That’s understandable. Alex strangely voted to maintain the practice of automatic deductions from state workers’ paychecks to pay for politicking. This is a major tool of empowerment for special interests.

Alex also voted against a mild, but significant, anti-vote fraud bill that would have allowed poll watchers to work throughout the state. The law now restricts them to the county in which they are registered.  He opposed a  bill limiting abortions in Pennsylvania to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy rather than the existing 24. It should be noted that liberal Sweden bans them at 18 weeks while most of the rest of Western Europe bans them at 12 weeks.

The primary election is May 15.

The 165th District has 63, 769 residents as of 2011 and consists of Morton Borough;  Springfield Township except for the 2nd precinct of the 3rd Ward; Marple Township except for the 5th Ward; and the 4th and 6th wards of Radnor Township along with 1st Precinct of the 1st Ward, the 1st Precinct of the 3rd Ward and the 2nd Precinct of the 5th Ward.

Bathroom Bill Headache For Wagner

Bathroom Bill Headache For Wagner

By Carla D’Addesi

A simmering issue is heating up in Pennsylvania’s Gubernatorial Primary to be decided on May 15. Confusing campaign ads and ambiguous language are hiding the truth causing Pennsylvania to appear to be another corrupt swamp in need of draining!

The emerging battle has divided Conservatives and is challenging the paradigm of the Republican Party, turning them against the PA GOP itself!

Let’s simplify the situation for voters.

Current PA Governor, (D) Tom Wolf will be challenged in November by one of three  Republican primary candidates: Laura Ellsworth,  Paul Mango, or  State Senator Scott Wagner.

The divisive issue has to do with the “Bathroom Bill” otherwise known as the PA Fairness Act. Though the “Fairness Act” has a pleasant ring to it, the controversy lies within the ambiguous wording of proposed Senate Bill 974, which seeks to add “gender identity & expression and sexual orientation” to Pennsylvania’s Human Relations Act.

The confusion arises because the language in the Bathroom Bill doesn’t actually include the word “bathroom” but instead says “Public Accommodations.”

The new law would state:

State law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity, age, religion, and handicap, among other characteristics, in the areas of employment, housing, and public accommodations.

Public accommodations are places that provide goods and services such as restaurants, movie theaters, hotels, and public schools.

If sexual orientation and gender identity were added to the anti-discrimination law, which is co-sponsored by Scott Wagner in SB 974, then public accommodations could NOT exclude transgender people from the restrooms that correspond to their gender identity!

What does that mean to your children, their schools and their safety?

Biological males and females will have the right to access bathrooms, locker rooms and showers of the opposite sex!

Biological boys who believe they have a girl’s brain, and are trapped in a boy’s body, will be allowed full access to all girl’s bathrooms, locker rooms and showers.

Biological girls who believe they have a boy’s brain, and are trapped in a boy’s body, will be allowed access to all boy’s bathrooms, locker rooms and showers.

Men who “feel” like women will be permitted to waltz into the women’s locker rooms of the YMCA where my daughters are changing for their swim classes.

My unwillingness to share my locker rooms with men isn’t a matter of mere discomfort. It’s a matter of safety.

Women don’t fear transgenders in the spaces; they fear men in their spaces. How can we distinguish between a transwoman and a predator until it’s too late?

Ironically, women’s shelters, places often sought to escape dangerous men, would be forced to admit men who “feel” like women. According to research published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as many as 57 percent of the women in shelters report domestic violence as the primary cause of their homelessness. What does it look like when those men are allowed to claim female “gender identity” and follow them in?

Paul Mango, vows to veto any “bathroom bill” legislation that violates privacy for bathrooms and public facilities, ensuring women & children our privacy, safety and protection of religious liberties.

True Conservatives in Pennsylvania plan to elect Paul Mango.

Regina Scheerer Meet Greet At Bogart’s

Regina Scheerer Meet Greet At Bogart's
Mrs. Scheerer

Regina Scheerer Meet Greet At Bogart’s — Regina Scheerer, who is a candidate in the Republican Primary for the 165 District Seat in the Pennsylvania House, is holding a meet and greet , 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 11, at Bogart’s Bar & Grill in the Springfield Shopping Center.

Appetizers, desserts and soft drinks will be provided.

Mrs. Scheerer, a retired teacher, was motivated to run by the feckless indifference of the incumbent on a range of issues including out-of-control spending, cronyism and pension reform. Did you know that there is someone collecting a $477,591 public pension in this state? The incumbent certainly does and appears to find it just peachy.

He certainly hasn’t been objecting to it.

Come out and meet Regina.

Joe Billie Ends Run For Congress

Joe Billie Ends RunJoe Billie Ends Run For Congress — Joe Billie who threw his hat in the ring for congress when Pat Meehan was still the expected Republican candidate and most of Delaware County was in the 7th District, has tweeted that he is ending his run:

My 2018 Congressional bid has ended. I have learned so much & will keep up the fight! Our government continues to fail our Veterans! The Establishment must go! THANK YOU to everyone who supported, donated & spread the word! Let’s keep it going! 2020 will be here soon!

Good luck Joe. Stay involved.

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures
Regina Scheerer, retired teacher

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures — Regina Scheerer, the retired teacher who is taking on incumbent State Rep. Alex Charlton, delivered nominating petitions containing nearly 900 signatures, Friday, to the  Pennsylvania Bureau of Commissions, Elections and Legislation.

Only 300 signatures are needed.

Unless there are some bizarrely major issues (shenanigans), expect to see Mrs. Scheerer’s name on the ballot for the May 15 Republican Primary.

Charlton was elected to represent Pennsylvania’s 165th District in 2016 replacing long-time incumbent Bill Adolph.

Since then, he has time and again poked his constituents in the eye. He has opposed commonsense reforms aimed at curtailing vote fraud. He has endeavored to maintain the corrupt system that lets money be automatically deducted from the paychecks of public employees to pay for politicking. This politicking often involves supporting things that the employee opposes.

He has refused to fight for pension reform. Did you know that there is someone in this state getting a $477,591 public pension for which you are on the hook? Alex certainly should.

Alex has avoided the fight to abolish the Prevailing Wage mandate which could  shave $25 million off the price of the $125 million Springfield High School project. Why does Alex want to inflict this burden on his elderly neighbors living on fixed incomes?

The final straw for Mrs. Scheerer, though, came Dec. 12 when Alex voted against limiting abortions to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy rather than the existing 24. He was one of six Republicans to do so. Civilized people understand that failing to protect weak and helpless life lead to nihilism and despair. Most of Western Europe bans abortion — with some strict exceptions — at 12 weeks.  Note, this would be 12 weeks gestational age which would be about nine weeks after conception.

Even hip, progressive Sweden and Norway ban them at 18 weeks gestational age.

Alex, however, who ran as a pro-lifer, thinks that’s too oppressive.

The 165th District has 63, 769 residents as of 2011 and consists of Morton Borough;  Springfield Township except for the 2nd precinct of the 3rd Ward; Marple Township except for the 5th Ward; and the 4th and 6th wards of Radnor Township along with 1st Precinct of the 1st Ward, the 1st Precinct of the 3rd Ward and the 2nd Precinct of the 5th Ward.

For the record, Mrs. Scheerer says she will not take the legislative  pension.

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.

Lunch With Joe Billie

Lunch With Joe Billie
Joe Billie

Lunch With Joe Billie — We just finished a lunch with Joe Billie, who may be the only declared Republican candidate seeking to to replace out-going  Pat Meehan in Pennsylvania’s 7th District.

Billie says a Chadds Ford man has also officially declared but we can’t find much about him.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Jan. 22 that the congressional districts established in 2010 and used for three election cycles were unconstitutional and ordered them redrawn . Today (Feb. 9) is the deadline but as of this writing the new boundaries are unknown to us. Billie is a resident of Aston, however, and it is a pretty safe bet that Aston will be included.

Billie began his campaign months ago angered by Meehan’s attitude towards veterans — Meehan was the only Republican to vote against the VA Accountability Act of 2015 — and his  hypocritical disavowal of then candidate Trump two weeks before the 2016 election.

A veteran himself, Billie left classes at Delaware County Community College in 1990 to join the Navy when Operation Desert Shield began. He was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS America eventually rising to the rank of petty officer. He was involved in numerous actions in the Persian Gulf, Bosnia and Somalia.

Leaving the service in 1994,  Billie returned to college pursing a degree in criminal justice. He became active in the community re-joining the Folcroft Fire Co. where he grew up. He rose to the position of chief and also became the borough’s fire marshal. He became an assistant fire marshal in Aston after moving to that town.

Billie re-enlisted in the Naval Reserve after 9/11.

He works at the Kimberly Clark paper mill in Chester  and is a member of the United Steelworkers.

Billie is married to a (legal) immigrant from Portugal and has two children, one of whom will be starting  college in the fall.

He describes himself as a constitutional conservative and is right on just about everything. For details see his website.

He says he understands  teamwork and that working with Dems is key in the 7th District.

Governors Run Alone Notes Gale

Governors Run Alone Notes Gale
Joe Gale

Governors Run Alone Notes Gale — Montco Commissioner Joe Gale who is among those running for the GOP lieutenant governor nomination in the May 15 primary, has observed that that gubernatorial candidate Paul Mango may be on the verge of announcing a lieutenant governor “running mate.”

“If so, this would be the same mistake gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner made when choosing RINO Jeff Bartos to be his so-called “running mate,” Gale says.

Gale notes that there is no such thing as a joint ticket in the Republican primary for Governor and Lieutenant Governor. These are two separate and distinct races.

“Don’t be fooled by fake tickets between now and the May 15th primary election,” he said. “I am the only Lieutenant Governor candidate that can help the eventual Republican gubernatorial nominee defeat Democrat Tom Wolf in November when there truly is a Republican ticket chosen by the Republican voters of Pennsylvania.”
