Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of war

Posted July 16, 2018, 10:03 am

trump1The oft quoted title line is from Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar” wherein Mark Antony seeks to incite the crowd at Caesar’s funeral to violence.  It would be an appropriate motto for the Trump Derangement Syndrome debilitated Democratic Party we see today.

What a great time to be a Republican campaign strategist!  Your opposition is doing 90 percent of your work for you.  The Extreme Left fringe of the Democratic party is now the dominant wing and is working overtime to drive the party to electoral oblivion.  On the present trajectory of the Democratic Party, Republicans should have veto-proof majorities in both houses of Congress.

The spokes-faces of the Democratic party are now the completely unhinged octogenarian Maxine Waters with her collection of ludicrous cowgirl hats who represents a mostly Hispanic Los Angeles district and the delusional antique multi-millionaire Nancy Pelosi who typifies her wacky San Francisco district.  Perfect examples of the Democratic base.

The Democrats have apparently distilled their party platform to a single issue, that being that the United States should allow anyone who wants to to enter this country.  Apparently they now believe that the borders and immigration laws which have existed in one form or another since the nation’s inception are some type of human rights violation, white nationalism, racism and will cause untold plague and pestilence.  Further, not only must we admit everyone who appears at the border but we must welcome them in, give them free education, free food, social security, a retirement plan and Medicare.  Oh, I almost forgot, and a ballot in future elections printed in their own language and pre-checked with Democratic candidates.  How could I forget that.  That is the real reason for the interest in immigration.  Do you suppose for one moment there would be any interest at all if illegal aliens voted Republican?

The other apparent piece of the Democratic focus is hating Republicans.  That is a really constructive effort and will go a long way toward uplifting the nation, I’m sure.  It seems that official Democratic policy now is that anyone connected with the Trump administration must be hounded and harassed wherever they go, refused service in restaurants,  have their families intimidated and threatened, and be constantly annoyed even in their own homes.

Quick Commentary: Wacky San Francisco Gets Wackier

Posted July 19, 2018, 11:12 am

67564One of the most cherished rights of citizenship in the United States is the right to vote.  To vote, you must be a U.S. citizen.  Well, you do in most places but as of this week, San Francisco isn’t one of them.  As of this week, you may now vote in School Board elections in SF if you are a non-citizen or an illegal alien.

Similar voting rights reportedly exist in Chicago and various cities in Maryland and Massachusetts.  I’m sure this has nothing to do with the propensity of these “voters” to vote Democratic.

There is a way to make this black mark on democracy a bit more tolerable.  That would be to take the illegal alien voter registration records and use them as a deportation list.


Great Day for Republicans in Washington County

Posted July 17, 2018, 9:49 am

3l7oz6Pb_400x400Saturday, July 14, was a great day for Republicans in Washington County.

The day began with a county wide meeting of all county elected officials and candidates together with County Republican Chairman Mark Hrutkay and Vice Chairman Dave Ball and District Managers.  Gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner kicked off the meeting by discussing statewide campaigns and how critical Washington County is to electing Lou Barletta, Jeff Bartos and himself.  He also discussed the importance of Guy Reschenthaler’s 14th Congressional District race.

More than 30 Republican leaders spent the morning planning their strategy to assure solid wins in the fall General Elections.  Momentum and issues are solidly with Republicans.  We just need to take the message to the voters and assure an enthusiastic turnout.

At 2:00 with the invaluable work of radio personality Rose Tennant, Gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner was back in Washington County to attend a round table on ways that he can address the opioid issue when he is Governor.  The forum was hosted by Dean Gartland and the City Mission in Washington.  On the panel were State Senator Camera Bartolotta, County Commissioner Diana Irey Vaughan and District Attorney Gene Vittone.  In addition to hearing about legislative, administrative and legal initiatives, truly moving testimonies were given by several persons associated with the City Mission program who have benefitted from their program.

From the City Mission, Scott Wagner, Sen. Bartolotta, Mark Hrutkay and Dave Ball traveled to Trax Farm and met with its owner, Chuck Trax who took the group on a tour of the facility and talked about small business economic opportunities in the area.

Many thanks to all who put this program together on short notice,  especially the WCRP leadership team, Rose Tennant, Dean Gartland, Chuck Trax, Sen. Bartolotta, Commissioner Irey Vaughan, D.A. Vittone and Sen. Wagner’s staff.

News Flash – Good News for Republicans

Posted June 27, 2018, 10:49 am

logo_465432w67Yesterday, Primaries were held in a number of important states.  While the results brought few major surprises, they were generally good news for Republicans.  The results certainly indicated continuing deep divides in the Democratic Party and continuing support for President Trump.

If there is any “change” noted in primaries to date, it is that the Democratic party continues to move further left – to “Bernie-fy” as they term it.  This can be nothing but good for Republicans.  The more the Democratic Party looks like the failing European socialists, the better.

The “Bernie-fied” Democrats, when they actually take time to talk about issue and are not in the streets yelling about ripping babies out of peoples arms or chasing respectable people out of restaurants, are pushing things like rolling back President Trumps highly successful tax cuts, free college for all, Medicare for all, and transforming this nation into a European style welfare state.  That will certainly sell in “flyover” America.

In New York City, incumbent Representative Crowley, a rising star in the Democratic Party and talked about as a possible future Speaker, lost his primary race to a 28 year old with no political experience who is a former Sanders organizer and supported by Socialist Democrats.  On the Republican side in NY, Trump backed Rep. Dan Donovan defeated former Rep. Mike Grimm.

In Utah, Mitt Romney won the Senate nomination.  He will take over the role of Jeff Flake (AR) as chief annoyance to the President.  Flake leaving is no loss but Romney is no bargain, either as he is not a Trump supporter

In South Carolina, Trump backed Henry McMaster won a runoff for the nomination for governor.  McMaster replaced Nikki Haley when she became UN Ambassador.

Maryland is interesting as the Democrats nominated former NAACP president Ben Jealous to face popular Republican governor Larry Hogan in a heavily Democratic state.  Hogan is favored.

Washington County Republican Party
June 5, 2018

Washington County Commissioner Diana Irey Vaughan announced today that she was endorsing the candidacy of State Senator Scott Wagner for Governor of Pennsylvania.

Commissioner Irey Vaughan said that she supports the Republican ticket 100%. Two weeks ago she participated in a “Unity Run” with her former Republican rival for Lt. Governor, Jeff Bartos.

Washington County Republican Vice Chairman and party Spokesman Dave Ball said that the party is united in replacing one of the most liberal Governors in the nation. “Electing Scott Wagner is critical to bringing jobs and economic prosperity to Pennsylvania. Scott Wagner gives Pennsylvania the best opportunity to be a great state, the Keystone state!”

Vaughn added to this by stating, “I urge my supporters to get behind Scott and work to get he and Jeff elected. Our County party is focused on winning in November. Join the team to make this happen.”
