Over 1,500 members and friends of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association are riding on 28 buses departing from various locations in the region to attend today's Glenn Beck Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D.C.

More bad news for Democrats

It's beginning to look like a GOP rout in Pennsylvania as voters are looking for change after the disastrous Obama administration and Democratic-controlled Congress.

Highlights from the highly-respected Franklin & Marshall College Poll:
1) The percentage of Pennsylvanians who say the state is headed in the right direction now stands at 30 percent -- a 15 year low -- while 58 percent believe it is off on the wrong track.

2) Pennsylvanians continue to express pessimism about the economy. A third (33%) find their personal finances worse off this year than last, and only about one in four (24%) expect their personal finances to be better off a year from now. These figures have changed little since March.

3) In the governor's race Tom Corbett holds an 11 point lead over Dan Onorato, (38% to 27%), among likely voters with slightly less than one third (31%) undecided and four percent who would chose someone else. Among registered adults, Corbett holds a one point lead, (29% to 28%), with 39 percent undecided and four percent supporting another candidate. Registered adults cite the economy, reducing spending/debt, and taxes (29%, 11%, and 9%), respectively, as the most important issues in their vote for governor.

4) Among likely voters, Pat Toomey leads Joe Sestak (40% to 31%) in their primary race for U.S. senate, with about one in four (26%) undecided and three percent with another choice. When registered adults are considered, Toomey's lead narrows, 31 percent to 28 percent, with almost four in ten (38%) without a preference. More registered Pennsylvanians cite the economy (35%) as the most important issue in their vote for U.S. senate than did in May (26%).

5) President Obama's job approval in Pennsylvania remain relatively weak with only 37 percent of voters finding his performance positive, specifically nine percent "excellent" and 28 percent "good." Five times as many Pennsylvanians (35%) rate the president's job performance as "poor" compared to "excellent." Governor Ed Rendell's job performance is even weaker -- only 30 percent find his performance positive, seven percent find it "excellent" and 23 percent say it is "good." The same proportions (30%) say he is doing a "poor job."

6) Democrats are less likely to vote at the moment than Republicans. Only 37 percent of Democrats are likely to vote compared to 45 percent of Republicans. In another comparison, about one third (35%) of those who voted for Obama in 2008 are likely to vote now compared to half (50%) of McCain voters.

Major endorsement for David M. Maloney in 130th State House Race

From Kim Stolfer, chairman of Firearms Owners Against Crime, on the group's endorsement of Republican David M. Maloney, candidate for the 130th District in the Pennsylvania House:
We, FOAC, are convinced that Mr. Maloney will actively support Pennsylvania citizen’s rights to defend themselves, their families and our constitutional heritage.

We believe that a strong, independent and constitutionally sound government is essential for our society to flourish, especially in these trying times. We have been in contact with Mr. Maloney for many months and he has demonstrated his knowledge of issues important to FOAC and we are confident he will represent the best interests of all Pennsylvanians regarding Second Amendment issues.


Mr. Maloney’s opponent in the November election, State Rep. Dave Kessler (D) who is also Chairman of the Oley Township Supervisors, voted for an ordinance to ban all firearms from all Oley Township municipal buildings. This ordinance directly violated state preemption law, our constitution and Rep. Kessler’s ‘oath of office’. Citizens and gun-owner groups strongly objected to the ban. We at FOAC and the NRA became involved and within a month Mr. Kessler and the other supervisors were forced to withdraw their own ordinance because it violated PA state law which prohibits municipalities from regulating the ownership and possession of firearms.

For more information on FOAC, visit the group's website at http://www.foac-pac.org/

Columnist: Rohrer loyalists start write-in campaign

Conservatives refuse to give up the fight to elect Sam Rohrer governor of Pennsylvania. That's bad news for GOP nominee Tom Corbett, who needs a united Republican Party behind him to win the governor's mansion in a state where Democrats hold the advantage in voter registration. Corbett needs to reach out to Rohrer and his supporters or risk losing to liberal Dan Onorato in November.

Joe Sestak supports mosque at Ground Zero

The contrast between the two candidates vying for Arlen Specter's Senate seat from Pennsylvania could not be any sharper.

Liberal Democrat Joe Sestak supports building a mosque at Ground Zero. Republican Pat Toomey opposes the location of the controversial mosque.

From an article in The Philadelphia Inquirer:

"I strongly believe in the constitutional right of religious freedom and in the separation of church and state applying equally to everyone," said Sestak, a former Navy vice admiral serving his second term in the U.S. House. But, he added, "this is an issue for New York to resolve as long as it respects those constitutional rights. Let's stop playing politics with religion." The crowd of about 75 supporters applauded.

Sestak's Republican opponent, former Rep. Pat Toomey, says the Muslim group seeking to build the mosque and center should go elsewhere with the project out of sensitivity to the families of those killed at the trade center in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Robert Sklaroff, a physician and Republican activist from Elkins Park, questioned Sestak's judgment for speaking in 2007 to a Council on American-Islamic Relations dinner and said that the imam behind the mosque proposal had made anti-American statements on CBS's 60 Minutes.

"Look," Bloomberg said, "I would suggest you go from here directly to the library, get a copy of the Bill of Rights, and you'll realize that everybody has a right to say what they want to say. I happen to believe that that is the most important right that we have - the right to say what we want to say, which includes pray to whomever we want, in any place we want, in any manner we want."

Read the full story at the newspaper's website.

Bottom line: Joe Sestak is out-of-touch with the majority of Pennsylvania residents on almost every issue, including the controversial mosque.

TRIVEDI ADMITS HE HAS BEEN LYING TO VOTERS FOR NEARLY 9 MONTHS

It appears that the Democratic challenger for Pennsylvania's 6th Congressional District has been lying to voters for the past nine months about his professional background. Not a good way to impress voters who are tired of politicians who can't tell the truth.

From a Gerlach for Congress press release:

In a PA2010.com news story Wednesday, DCCC-backed candidate Manan Trivedi admitted that he was not a doctor at Reading Hospital despite intentionally misleading voters to believe he worked there for the last nearly nine months. In fact, hospital officials confirmed he has not set foot in the hospital since the fall of last year (in all of 2009, he reported income of only $18,000 from the hospital, proving he hardly worked there to begin with). Still, even today, images on Trivedi’s website continue to associate himself with Reading Hospital and his Facebook profile lists the Hospital as his employer.

Trivedi has centered his campaign credentials on the fact that he is a doctor at Reading Hospital. His admission Wednesday indicates he knowingly and repeatedly gave false information in hundreds of campaign speeches and in approved campaign material sent to thousands of voters and countless left-wing donors. Among some of the documented examples:

  • Trivedi’s current Facebook profile, which even today still lists his employer as Reading Hospital, is in fact, FALSE.
  • when Trivedi dropped a mass mailing May 5th stating “he is now a physician at Reading Hospital and Medical Center,” approximately six months after he stopped working there, that statement was in fact, FALSE.
  • when Trivedi circulated a 6-page fundraising packet June 17th in advance of a fundraiser with lawyers, when it twice stated he was a “primary care physician at Reading Hospital and Medical Center,” approximately seven months after he stopped working there, that statement was in fact, FALSE.
  • when Trivedi updated that same 6-page fundraising packet and circulated it last week in advance of a health-care oriented fundraiser in Washington, which twice stated he was a “primary care physician at Reading Hospital and Medical Center,” approximately eight months after he stopped working there, that statement was in fact, FALSE.
  • Trivedi continues to use his association with Reading Hospital, as it is prominently featured in photos on the homepage of his website, to imply he is a doctor there, which is FALSE.

"The fact that he continues to say today that he is employed at the hospital, when he has not worked there for nearly nine months, speaks directly to his credibility," said Mark Campbell, Gerlach campaign spokesman. "Trivedi’s campaign is a hoax and he has truth problems. He lied to Democrat primary voters to defeat Doug Pike. I guess he thought he could continue the big lie without anyone actually checking."
