No More Frankens



Just in time for Halloween, the Republican National Committee has launched a new website to remind remind voters what is at stake on Nov. 2.

From RNC Chairman Michael Steele:
"With Democrat lawyers, liberal shadow groups, and labor unions organizing to challenge the Election Day results, it is more important than ever that the American people deliver a decisive victory for Republicans up and down the ballot in all 50 states. In order to protect our hard-fought victories, we must fund and operate a winning 72 hour ground game which puts the margin of victory out of reach. The election of Democrat Al Franken to the United States Senate serves as a glaring and painful reminder to voters as to why it is so important to support our Republican Victory program and show up on Election Day."

PhillyBurbs.com:  Endorsement 2010 - Conflict in the 13th Congressional

The Doylestown Intelligencer is unable to endorse incumbent Democrat Rep. Allyson Schwartz for Pennsylvania's 13th Congressional District because Schwartz is too partisan and has voted wrong on key issues in the past two years. The newspaper says Republican challenger Dee Adcock is too inexperienced to back for the seat, but they cannot support Schwartz's re-election, either.

Newspaper backs Toomey for US Senate

The Express-Times of Easton is the latest Pennsylvania newspaper to endorse Pat Toomey over Joe Sestak in the much-watched race for the open U.S. Senate seat from Pennsylvania.

Toomey would make a real difference in Congress, unlike Sestak, who has rubber-stamped the Obama-Pelosi agenda since he arrived in Washington.

From the newspaper's endorsement editorial:
Toomey is so opposed to earmarks he says he wouldn't try to bring any back to Pennsylvania — he'd focus on eliminating them, a practice he began as a congressman.

The best example of Toomey's tenaciousness came in 1998-99, when he got tired of arguing in the House about excessive spending and wrote his own budget. He then led a filibuster that forced Republican leaders to adopt some of his cuts.

That's the kind of restraint Congress needs to enshrine — and Toomey is the candidate who won’t brook any dissent in a war on wasteful spending.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette endorses Corbett for PA governor

One of the most liberal newspapers in Pennsylvania, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, is urging its readers to elect Republican Tom Corbett governor of Pennsylvania over Ed Rendell-close Dan Onorato.

I am shocked. The Post-Gazette hardly ever endroses Republicans.

From the newspaper's endorsement editorial:
This no-nonsense politician also has his enlightened and progressive side. He recognizes the benefit of early education (as does Mr. Onorato) and sees the absurdity of that relic of Prohibition, the monopolistic Liquor Control Board system, and the crying need for its privatization (which Mr. Onorato does not). If done right, this would be a way of providing a great amount of budgetary relief without raising taxes. It also would send a message in the strongest way that Pennsylvania, despite its backward reputation, is not change averse.

The Post-Gazette endorses Tom Corbett, the candidate in a season of change who we believe can break with the past for the sake of a better future.

Read the full editorial here.

The city's other newspaper, the more conservative Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, also endorsed Corbett for governor. You can read that editorial here.

T-Paw Welcomes President Obama Back to Minnesota

The Imperial Presidency

David Asman has a disturbing prediction of "The Coming Imperial Presidency" after Democrats lose control of Congress.

His Majesty Barack Obama will not listen to the voice of the people when they repudiate his radical agenda on Nov. 2.

Instead, he will likely rule by decry, bypassing Congress - and the will of the American people.

From Asman's column at Fox Business:
(Obama's) vision of America is one in which a dwindling private sector becomes the lap dog of an ever growing, government managed economy. You can call it European statism or socialism, but it's definitely not the free market most of us were accustomed to. And while it may not be our vision of America, it is his vision. And he wants to pursue it. But how? Without a compliant Congress it won't be as easy as it was the first two years. That's why we think he's going to turn up the juice of his executive powers to a level we haven't seen for decades. And it's not just us saying it.

The Los Angeles Times published a piece last week about how Obama is considering using executive orders to bypass the intentions of Congress:

"The best arena for Obama to execute his plans may be his own branch of government. That means more executive orders…and more deployment of his ample regulatory powers and the wide-ranging rulemaking authority of his Cabinet members."

Michael Brubaker (36th Dist.), Matt Connolly (14th Dist.), John Eichelberger (30th Dist.), Mike Folmer (48th Dist.), Rhashea Harmon (8th Dist.), Frank Scavo (22nd Dist.), Steve Urban (14th Dist.), and Michael Waugh (28th Dist.)
The following candidates are endorsed for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives:
John Bear (97th Dist.), Steve Bloom (199th Dist.), Tom Bogar (153rd Dist.), Scott Boyd (43rd Dist.), Rob Ciervo (31st Dist.), Paul Clymer (145th Dist.), Jim Cox (129th Dist.), Tom Creighton (37th Dist.), Bryan Cutler (100th Dist.), Gordon Denlinger (99th Dist.), Alex Dubart (20th Dist.), Joe Emrick (137th Dist.), Garth Everett (84th Dist.), Mark Gillen (128th Dist.), Glen Grell (87th Dist.), Seth Grove (196th Dist.), Doyle Heffley (122nd Dist.), Sue Helm (104th Dist.), David Hickernell (98th Dist.), Dave Huffman (83rd Dist.), Rob Kauffman (89th Dist.), Fred Keller (85th Dist.), Mark Keller (86th Dist.), Daryl Metcalfe (12th Dist.), Ron Miller (93rd Dist.), Dan Moul (91st Dist.), Kathy Rapp (65th Dist.), Doug Reichley (134th Dist.), Todd Rock (90th Dist.), Curt Schroder (155th Dist.), Stan Saylor (94th Dist.), Justin Simmons (131st Dist.), RoseMarie Swanger (102nd Dist.), and Will Tallman (193rd Dist.)
From a The Pennsylvania Right to Work PAC press release:
The Right to Work PAC supports incumbents and challengers, Democrats and Republicans — a diverse group of candidates who share a desire to help Pennsylvania's economy and individual citizens by passing legislation guaranteeing every wage earner's right to hold a job regardless of union membership or support.

It is the Unions and the union entitlement mentality which justifies taking from those who have built and created profitable, productive businesses and, in particular, the monopoly government unions, who are driving Pennsylvania to bankruptcy.

This election is critical to the future of Pennsylvania just as a Right to Work law is critical for economic growth in our Commonwealth. We believe these candidates provide the best hope for a better tomorrow in Pennsylvania.

Anti-gun group backs Onorato for PA governor

There's a clear distinction between Republican Tom Corbett and Democrat Dan Onorato when it comes to protecting Second Amendment rights.

Corbett, who is endorsed by the NRA, is a staunch defender of gun rights. Onorato backs gun-control measures.

That's why he has been endorsed by CeaseFirePA, a liberal advocacy group pushing for more gun-control measures against law-abiding Pennsylvania gun ownners.

From the CeaseFirePA press release endorsing Onorato:

Since May, Onorato has distinguished himself as the clear gubernatorial choice for Pennsylvanians concerned with the rising tide of gun violence in Commonwealth. Onorato has been one of the strongest voices in Pennsylvania for closing the Florida Gun Loophole. By contrast, Tom Corbett has refused to address the issue of gun violence – both as a candidate and as Pennsylvania's Attorney General. In a televised debate on October 16th, Corbett and Onorato sparred over how to address the Florida loophole. While Corbett once again dismissed the issue, "I don't believe there is a Florida loophole," Dan Onorato addressed it head on: "I don't need the Department of Agriculture in Florida telling me who should carry a gun in Pennsylvania."

OPA! Greek festival marks 40th year in Reading, PA

READING — "Be Greek For A Day" is the theme of the 40th annual Greek Food Bazaar scheduled for Oct. 15-16-17 at Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church.

Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the largest ethnic food festival in Berks County to enjoy Greek food and pastry, wine, dancing, arts and crafts and live music.

All the food is prepared and cooked on the premises by parishioners using traditional Greek recipes.

The most popular dish is Athenian-style chicken, which comes in a platter with a side of rice pilaf or pastitsio (layered Greek pasta, seasoned with chopped beef topped with b├ęchamel) and Greek-style string beans cooked with tomatoes and seasonings, a Greek salad featuring feta cheese, and roll and butter for $10.

You can substitute Plaki (fresh fish fillet baked with vegetables, herbs and wine) for the platter meal.

There are also a la carte items such Gyro (marinated beef and lamb slices) and Souvlaki (pork shis-ke-bob) sandwiches; Calamari (squid) cooked in tomatoes and wine; Moussaka (eggplant casserole); and Arni Psito (roast lamb) with Greek spices.

All food items are available to eat-in or take-out.

A variety of imported Greek wines and the popular Ouzo, an anise-flavored liqueur, are also available. Beer and soda is also on sale for less adventurous visitors.

While enjoying a meal in the main dining hall, visitors will be treated to Greek and American music by Stavros & Maria, a brother-sister act who are also church members.

The church's youth dance group, Kefi, will perform traditional Greek dances wearing colorful costumes throughout the weekend.

After a hearty meal, there's plenty to see and do on the church grounds.

An Agora (Greek market) offers packaged Greek foods and prepared dishes to go.

The Kafenio (Greek coffee house) features fresh-brewed Greek-style coffee, rice pudding and pastries in a relaxed atmosphere.

Visitors can also shop for original artwork, gold jewelry and items imported from Greece in the figt rooms.

Festival-goers can also view one of the largest collections of Byzantine iconography in the United States. Free guided tours of the church interior are provided on the hour.

A popular stop for all visitors is the pastry room, where you can pick between popular treats like Baklava (almonds, butter, and honey layered in flaky pastry), Teelikta (walnuts, butter and honey rolled in flaky pastry); Kourabiethes (butter cookies topped with powdered sugar), Koulourakia (Greek twisted butter cookie) and Galaktobouriko (a filo pastry filled with custard and moistened with honey syrup).

Another Greek delicacy is Loukoumathes (puffed honey balls), a warm dough pastry topped with honey, cinnamon and chopped nuts.

Also try the Baklava Sundae for a unique taste treat.

Bazaar hours are noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Admission and parking are free in the church lot. Additional parking is available at the adjacent Holy Name High School. The event is held rain or shine.

The church is located at 1001 E. Wyomissing Blvd., about one mile from Business Route 222 South (Lancaster Avenue), just turn onto Hancock Boulevard at the car dealership and follow the road to the church.

For more information, call the church office at 610-374-7511 or visit the church's web site, www.stsconstantinehelen.org

"Pelosi's abusive use of military aircraft demonstrates a shocking lack of regard for the American taxpayer and the men and women who serve in the U.S. Air Force. Speaker Pelosi may have a frequent flyer record for taxpayer-financed luxury jet travel," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

For more information, or to register for the event, contact Sen. Rafferty’s office at 610-831-8830.

PA Chamber endorses Rep. Marcy Toepel

ChamberPAC, the political arm of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, has endorsed incumbent state Rep. Marcy Toepel for Montgomery County's 147th House District.

Because of Toepel's work in the private sector, she truly understands the needs of small and large businesses in the Commonwealth, PA Chamber President Floyd Warner said in a press release.

"Not only does she know what it takes to run a business, she knows first hand from serving as first deputy to the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts how government works and what it takes to work with communities and constituents," Warner said.

More from the ChamberPAC:
The PA Chamber applauds Toepel's recognition that Pennsylvania has one of the most hostile environments in the nation for job creation, and her call for business tax improvements in order to spur job creation and business growth in the Commonwealth.

"Pennsylvania businesses and taxpayers need a representative like Marcy Toepel – someone in office who understands what it will take to move Pennsylvania forward," Warner said. "For these reasons, the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry wholeheartedly supports her state House candidacy. Constituents in Montgomery County will be well served by Toepel as their state representative."
Toepel was elected to the Legislature in May to fill the unexpired term of Bob Mensch, who was elected to the state Senate last year. She is seeking a full two-year term.

Election Day is Nov. 2.

Obama's Legacy: Red Ink

In the past two years, the Obama Administration and the Democratic-controlled Congress have spent $6.97 trillion, a 21.4% increase in federal spending, according to The Wall Street Journal.

And what do we have to show for the record government spending? Record unemployment, record home foreclosures, record deficits, a record number of Americans collecting food stamps, a record number of Americans living in poverty.

The national debt has risen by $2.7 trillion under Obama, passing $13 trillion ... and will continue to rise under Obama's spending projections.

Stop the madness on Nov. 2 by voting out every Democrat on the ballot.

Paul Kanjorski - It's Been Too Long

No change, No hope, No jobs

The Department of Labor announced Friday that the United States economy shed an additional 95,000 private sector jobs last month. The national unemployment rate remained at 9.6% despite Barack Obama's promise that it would not rise above 8% once the "stimulus" spending was approved. So what happened?

More than 15 million Americans remain unemployed and another 10 million are underemployed as the Obama Recession heads into its 20th month.

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement:
"Seventeen consecutive months with higher than 9% unemployment represent the final verdict on the failed economic policies of this White House and the Democrat Congress as voters head to the polls. President Obama and his left wing allies on Capitol Hill have spent trillions of taxpayer dollars with nothing to show for it but a mountain of crippling debt and chronic joblessness. 95,000 more jobs lost provides further evidence that their agenda of more spending, higher taxes, and bigger government is only fueling more economic uncertainty and making it harder to put Americans back to work. After nearly two years of weak leadership and broken promises, the American people will go to the polls in less than a month and reject this Administration’s economic mismanagement."
