Ballot Measures 2Y 2N On May 18

By Donna Ellingsen

I feel like Paul Revere right now, and deeply alarmed.  I’ve been sharing the information attached, to everyone in Pennsylvania, and it’s giving me nightmares.  This issue is of supreme importance, so it really needs to be widely shared.   

I am attaching my more detailed explanation on the measures on the May 18 ballot, as well as a short explanation from the Lehigh Valley Tea Party Patriots, and the new one received from Allegheny County. 

I’m happy to announce that the patriots in Allegheny County as well as in Berks County have also confirmed that they are recommending a NO vote on Ballot measure #3 and #4, after I talked with their members.  Bucks, Erie, Lancaster, as well as other patriot groups are in agreement as well.  Patriots all over PA will be pushing this 2 YES’s and 2 NO’s vote.

Again, most, if not all of those who signed the infamous Act 77 Mail-in balloting, are also pushing this 3rd measure.  These RINOs are telling everyone that this was a “throwaway”  “feel-good” measure to get the Democrats on board to push the two first emergency measures.  But Republicans have the majority in the legislature to push for a referendum without having Wolf veto it.  It is a Trojan Horse.  It’s to the point that I consider any politician pushing this deceitful measure to have been co-opted or willing participants in the Deep State Harrisburg swamp, who are now revealing themselves.  And they are now in agreement with the Democrats who are pushing #3 and #4 (see below).  

Saying that the Republicans will be seen as racists is nonsense.  It’s the same battle that we are fighting in Congress at the federal level against the so-called “In(Equality)” bill HR 5 which is so dangerous.  

So many of the GOP State reps and senators are sending out flyers, etc. saying vote 3 yes’s and the county chairs are putting it out on their websites.  I’ve never seen such a push regarding any ballot measure like this, with any past ballot amendment.  There is something else going on behind the scenes, and just the fact that the Dept. of State is taking such pains to explain that this amendment to the PA Constitution will supersede both the US Constitution and Federal laws, is very alarming.  Consider the push by many leftists who want to suspend the US Constitution, Fauci being only one of many, and the push for a “Convention of States” (another false flag):  Fauci Believes the Constitution Should be Suspended | Armstrong Economics

Equality Amendment Is Racist; Fire Co Loans Is Scam

Equality Amendment Is Racist; Fire Co Loans Is Scam

By Donna Ellingsen

Apart from the two amendments dealing with limiting the Governor’s power to enact endless extensions of emergency lockdowns, there are 2 other ballot initiatives on the May 18th ballot in Pennsylvania.

  1. PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT 3 PROHIBITION AGAINST DENIAL OR ABRIDGEMENT OF EQUALITY OF RIGHTS BECAUSE OF RACE OR ETHNICITY
  2. STATEWIDE REFERENDUM MAKING MUNICIPAL FIRE AND EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES COMPANIES ELIGIBLE FOR LOANS

The so-called, misleadingly named “Equality” amendment on the ballot in May 2021 is a trap, I believe. DO NOT FALL FOR IT! When the #Leftists use these sweet-sounding words, it really means the opposite! It will create a special class for other RACES AND ETHNICITIES so they will be able to give OTHERS (read: IlLLEGALS and NON-WHITES) more equality than you (read: WHITES, CHRISTIANS, CONSERVATIVES, etc.!). Don’t let them fool us again!
This bill is not about enshrining “Equality” in the PA Constitution. It’s about ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION!!!
Think about it: It will create a special class for other races and ethnicities, so then will it become illegal to treat illegals differently from citizens? After all, we are all created EQUAL, and even the PA Constitution will say so.

Equality Amendment Is Racist; Fire Co Loans Is Scam

There’s an “Equality HR Bill 5 in Congress right now, trying to do the same and enshrine it in the US Constitution. And look at how they are using the same sweet-sounding “equality” nonsense! We already have equal rights for all defined in the Declaration of Independence as well as the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. Equal protection under the law. Therefore, there is NO need to create protected classes – e.g. a crime is always a crime; no need to specify a “Hate crime” which now creates special protections if you are labelling it a “hate crime.” This is what this deceptive “EQUALITY” is meant to do. They touted equality when they said it was only to stop backyard abortions and do “rare, legal abortions,” so now we have genocide being committed on a mass scale and partial-birth abortions up to the day of birthing.

It was “only hate crimes” and now we have muzzled ourselves to where it’s illegal to point out that most murders of blacks are committed by other blacks. And when they said, “We just want to love each other and be able to get married, to get recognized legally,” now we have transgenderism, sex being taught to 8-year-olds, little girls sharing bathrooms with grown men, males competing in women’s sports, and drag queen story hours with toddlers in public libraries

How many times are we going to fall for this? As far as I can tell, the GOP Leadership is pushing for this as a “feel-good measure” to give to Wolf and the Democrats in exchange for voting for limiting the Governor’s emergency powers. But the Dems who really WANT this amendment, are letting the Republicans push it! We all see how that worked for us with Act 77 and Mail-in ballots!

Please DO YOUR RESEARCH. VOTE NO ON THE MISLEADINGLY-NAMED “EQUALITY” AMENDMENT.

And vote NO as well on giving yet another office the ability to tax and spend your dollars at will.

Please feel free to copy this post and post it everywhere on social media in every venue. And spread the word to every group you are in. This is really important! Two YES’s and two NO’s.

Democrats play the long game; conservatives can only see the next 2 steps in front of them.

Isn’t this interesting? Change the meaning of words and definition to suit the occasion. Who’ll notice or realize it’s been changed? If you really want to know the true meaning of a word, look it up in a dictionary printed before 1950’s or earlier, but even a more recent one (1990’s) might suffice.

Protecting Livelihoods On Ballot May 18 In Pa

Protecting Livelihoods On Ballot May 18 In Pa

By Leo Knepper

Over the last year, Pennsylvanians have seen how unchecked power can impact every aspect of their daily lives. On May 18, voters will have an opportunity to ensure that checks and balances are added to the emergency declaration process. The primary election ballot will include two proposed constitutional amendments that will help protect lives and livelihoods in the future. 

Protecting Livelihoods On Ballot May 18 In Pa

The Department of State, controlled by the Governor, has done its best to make the proposed amendments as incomprehensible as possible in an attempt to confuse voters. In simple English, the proposed amendments are asking voters to answer two questions. First, should disaster emergencies declared by the Governor be limited to 21 days unless the General Assembly approves an extension? Second, should a majority of the House and Senate be able to vote to end a declared disaster emergency?

By voting “YES” on the proposed amendments, Pennsylvanianians will be restoring checks and balances to the emergency declaration process. Voters will also ensure that future governors can protect lives in a disaster but will have to work with the legislature to address longer-term problems. These proposed changes will also ensure that future Governors must be able to justify the decisions they are making in the name of safety.

Governor Wolf has shut down businesses and entire industries at random under his authority to declare a state of emergency. He claimed that his administration would “follow the science” to develop policies. Data obtained by the Commonwealth Partners clearly shows that that wasn’t the case. For example, only 2.6% of COVID positive patients said they attended or worked at a Pre-K or K-12 grade school in the 14 days before testing positive for the virus. Yet, many schools still are not holding in-person classes. 

On livelihoods, fewer than 3% of individuals reported visiting a restaurant in the 14 days before showing COVID-19 symptomsYet, Governor Wolf had issued drastic reductions in occupation limits and shut down indoor dining entirely on two separate occasions. 

Many locally-owned bars and restaurants have shut their doors forever due to the Governor’s go-it-alone approach, and countless children have suffered severe disruptions to their education. By voting yes to the proposed amendments on May 18th, Pennsylvanians will ensure that local communities, small businesses, and our children’s education will be protected in the future.

Disaster Powers Limited By Amendments On May Ballot

Disaster Powers Limited By Amendments On May Ballot

By Leo Knepper

Last week the House and Senate each passed versions of a joint resolution to amend the Pennsylvania constitution. The House is expected to pass the Senate version this week and that will be a first step toward taking back PA. The proposed amendments aim to ensure that Governor Wolf and future Governors cannot abuse emergency declarations and govern unilaterally. To understand the importance of the proposed amendments, we should look at the current law and what transpired during the COVID-19 shutdown.

According to the PA Emergency Services Management Code, the Governor can declare a disaster emergency. That declaration can last up to 90 days. If, after 90 days, the disaster still exists, the Governor can renew the declaration as often as s/he sees fit until the disaster is over. There is a provision in the law indicating that the General Assembly can end the declaration via a concurrent resolution, and the Governor “shall” terminate the declaration; here is where things broke down.

In June, the General Assembly passed the concurrent resolution to end the disaster declaration. Governor Wolf argued, and the Supreme Court agreed, that the Governor could veto the resolution and keep the disaster declaration in place. That decision dramatically shifted the balance of power in favor of the Governor. The amendments under consideration correct that imbalance.

If adopted, the amendments would do two things. First, the disaster declarations would be limited to 21 days and require the General Assembly’s approval if the Governor wants to extend it. The second proposed change would clarify that the Governor cannot veto resolutions ending a disaster declaration.

Voters will decide in May whether or not to adopt the constitutional amendments. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that the Governor and most Democrats are opposed to these changes. Governor Wolf and his allies will likely spend millions of dollars in the lead up to May’s vote to defeat the proposals.

We have an opportunity to ensure that no future Governor can indefinitely shut down the economy again.

Crompton Re-election Facing Headwinds

Crompton Re-election Facing Headwinds — J. Andrew Crompton was appointed to Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court a year ago to fill a seat vacated by the retirement of Robert Simpson. This term ends a year from now, which means Crompton’s up for election to a full 10-year-term this November.

He may not have a smooth path in the primary. Crompton is the Republican who on Dec. 30 denied a request by owners of 12 bars and restaurants for an injunction against enforcement of a three-week shutdown order, Dec. 10, by the ever-incompetent Gov. Tom Wolf.

The small business-owners said the order was destroying their lives and livelihoods, and they had no choice but to remain open.

Our heartless governor began levying fines and other costs on them.

The appealed and the case landed before Crompton.

Tough toenails was the verdict.

Yes, the fines and costs remain.

We are hearing that people remember.

Crompton has other issues too.

People do remember.

Commonwealth Court is the intermediate appellate court where cases involving state agencies are heard along with some in which the Commonwealth is a party.

We’d like to re-note that more than half of Pennsylvania’s 20,063 covid-19 deaths come from long-term care facilities and this total would be far less if the Wolf administration had been less incompetent and heartless.
