Cry Havoc and Let Slip The Dogs of War – Part 3

Posted August 13, 2018, 11:33 am

7547547656In Part 2, we looked at the rising tide of violence being promoted by the deranged left and their fellow travelers in the Democratic Party.  The inescapable conclusion was that the direction of the Democratic Party toward more violence was making Republicans stronger and alienating increasing numbers of the Democrats’ traditional identity voting blocs of minority voters.  As President Trump continues to add success to success and as the Democrats see their power slipping away, they ratchet up their politics of rage leading to more and more violent confrontations and drive more of their voters away.

The Democratic Party has made a living of hate speech targeting Republicans as being racist, homophobic, misogynist, Islamophobia and whatever else but the President’s steady stream of achievements are positively impacting every one of the Democrats’ identity voting blocks and they are beginning to take notice.  The President is chipping off pieces of the Democrats’ carefully protected, and subjugated, base.  The white working class was always in Trump’s camp but now fed up blacks, Hispanics, gays, millennials and others are beginning to desert the sinking Democratic ship.  These people are Americans and Americans demonstrably care about jobs and their own safety.  When they have more money in their paychecks, don’t have to depend on food stamps and are not working minimum wage jobs because higher paying jobs are now available, they notice and they are no longer enthralled by the destructive Democratic rage.

A recent Pew survey reported that the old stereotype of Trump supporters was certainly not true.  Only 31% were white men without college degrees.  66% are college graduates, women and non-whites.  What’s more, increasing numbers of millennials are going to vote Republican in the mid-terms.  They may not be thrilled with the Republican Party but they don’t want Pelosi and her band of the deranged to wreck the economy.  In 2016, millennials voted for Democrats for congress by 47 to 33 percent.  Today, support for Democrats has fallen 10 percent and is still falling.

NFL and the Anthem – Again

Posted July 27, 2018, 12:02 pm

footballUnbelievably, the NFL debate on players respecting our National Flag and National Anthem continues into another year.

Gutless Roger Goodell seems unable to exert any leadership on the issue despite TV ratings plummeting and attendance dropping clearly indicating where fans are on the issue.

Eight years of Obama America hating brought our nation to this point.  Yet, out of the morass of NFL ownership, one man has emerged who knows what leadership is and how to practice it; that is Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys, as all other NFL teams, began their training camp this week and Mr. Jones made one thing very, very clear.  The Dallas Cowboys have a policy that requires all Dallas players to stand on the field for the National Anthem regardless of any rules the NFL may adapt or implement.

Mr. Jones was very clear at a recent press conference that the Cowboys do not support players who decide to remain in the locker room during the anthem even if that is allowed by the league.  “Our policy is that you stand at the anthem, toe on the line.”  One or more players may test Jones and the Cowboy organization but it will not be a career enhancing move.  I doubt Jerry Jones is afraid of the NFLPA and I doubt he holds Goodell in very high regard.

Want to bet that sooner, rather than later, a few other owners will see the wisdom of Mr. Jones leadership and fall in line with him?  Want to bet that attendance and TV ratings confirm their decisions?

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 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.”
