James O’Keefe: Main Stream Media Is Now Powerless

American Uprising

Greenfield: American Uprising: This wasn’t an election. It was a revolution. It’s midnight in America. The day before fifty million Americans got up and stood in front of the great iron wheel that had been grinding them down. They stood there even though the media told them it was useless. They took their stand even while all the chattering classes laughed and taunted them.

45% say Clinton emails worse than Watergate, 61% fear probe to drag into White House

45% say emails worse than Watergate, 61% fear probe to drag into White House: The specter of a drawn-out, Nixon-like investigation is clouding Democrat Hillary Clinton's race for the presidency with a new poll showing nearly half equating the email scandal to Watergate and even more worried that the FBI probe will drag on into her presidency. While polls out Monday morning do not show a big swing away from Clinton to Republican Donald Trump, they do show renewed concerns about the revived investigation into her email server due to thousands of previously unknown emails found on the computer of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. While unlike Watergate, which eventually led to former President Richard Nixon's resignation, a Morning Consult poll asked voters to compare the 1970s-era affair to the email controversy and 45 percent said the Clinton email scandal is worse than the Watergate scandal.

88 top generals, admirals endorse Trump for president

Trump touts endorsement of 88 retired military figures: Donald Trump won the endorsement of 88 retired generals and admirals, according to an open letter released Tuesday morning by the campaign. The 2016 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to make a long overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy, the former military leaders wrote in their letter. The letter was spearheaded by Maj. Gen. Sidney Shachnow of the Army, a 40-year-old veteran and Holocaust survivor, and Rear Adm. Charles Williams of the Navy. It comes ahead of Trump's veterans affairs speech in Virginia Beach, Va., on Tuesday. As retired senior leaders of America's military, we believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world, the generals and admirals wrote. For this reason, we support Donald Trump's candidacy to be our next commander in chief.

Obama eyes special declaration to take charge of elections

Homeland eyes special declaration to take charge of elections: Even before the FBI identified new cyberattacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a critical infrastructure, giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and the electric power grid. The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials. We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said. There's a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure, he said at a media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

The Hardest Question for Democrats to Answer: Is Hillary Honest?

The Hardest Question for Democrats to Answer: Is Hillary Honest?: It’s easy to answer the question, “Is  Hillary Clinton honest?” for anyone who’s not a Democrat. But for New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan, that’s a question she dodged like a prize fighter. During a recent interview with CNN’s Manu Raju, Hassan exhibited her special ability to get out of the way of tough questions — not once, but THREE times: RAJU: Do you think that she’s honest and trustworthy?

The Most Frightening Political Fix in American History

Horowitz: The Most Frightening Political Fix:
Today we have witnessed a most frightening manifestation of the corruption of our political system. Doubly frightening because of what it augurs for all our futures if Hillary Clinton should prevail in the November elections. At the center of this corruption – but hardly alone - are the criminal Clintons – the Bonnie and Clyde of American politics - and their Democratic Party allies; but we should not fail to mention also the Republican enablers who would rather fight each other and appease their adversaries than win the political wars.

Less than 10% of bills passed by PA Legislature become law

Pennsylvania has the largest full-time state legislatures in the country and one of the most expensive, burning through $300 million taxpayer dollars every year. Are Pennsylvania residents getting their money's worth from the 253 state lawmakers and their nearly 3,000 staffers? Not exactly. If the job of the legislature is to get bills signed into law, then taxpayers deserve a refund. A great big refund!

From a report in the Philadelphia Inquirer:
With 253 members, Pennsylvania boasts one of the largest full-time legislatures in the nation - and though its members keep busy churning out legislation, few of those bills actually become law.

Of 3,998 bills introduced in the House and Senate during the 2013-14 session, 369 bills became law, or 9.2 percent.

So far in this legislative session, which began in January of last year, just 149 of the 3,265 bills introduced have been enacted, or 4.6 percent, according to the Pennsylvania Legislative Data Processing Center.
Less than 10 percent of bills become law in Pennsylvania. Is that worth $300 million?

Meet the College President Taking on 'Ideological Fascism'

Ted Cruz Coming to Pennsylvania



This Just In From Lowman S. Henry ...
The Presidential campaign will come to the Keystone State when U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) addresses the 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference. The conference will be held April 1-2, 2016 at the Radisson Penn Harris Convention Center in Camp Hill (Harrisburg), PA.  Registration for the conference is now open at www.paleadershipconference.org.

Also announced as speakers for the conference are Fox News Channel (FNC) senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, Stephen Moore of Fox News, former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, President of the Heritage Foundation; State Senator Scott Wagner; Daniel Garza of the LIBRE Initiative; Congressman Mike Kelly; John Gizzi of Newsmax and Jeff Lord of the American Spectator and CNN.  There will also be four interactive panel presentations and three workshop sessions.

The Pennsylvania Leadership Conference is the premiere gathering of public policy conservatives each year in the Keystone State.  It is the largest and longest-running of the state-based conservative conferences regularly attracting a long list of conservative elected officials, scholars, journalists and activists for two days of speeches, panel presentations, workshops and networking.

In addition to Senator Cruz, invitations to speak to the 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference have been extended to the remaining candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination: Mr. Donald Trump, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich. 
In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected as the 34th U.S. Senator from Texas. A passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution, Ted won a decisive victory in both the Republican primary and the general election, despite having never before been elected to office.

Before being elected to the U.S. Senate, Ted Cruz received national acclaim as the Solicitor General of Texas, the State's chief lawyer before the U.S. Supreme Court. Serving under Attorney General Greg Abbott, Ted was the nation's youngest Solicitor General, the longest serving Solicitor General in Texas, and the first Hispanic Solicitor General of Texas.

In private practice in Houston, Ted spent five years as a partner at one of the nation's largest law firms, where he led the firm's U.S. Supreme Court and national Appellate Litigation practice.
Ted has authored more than 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and argued 43 oral arguments, including nine before the U.S. Supreme Court. During Ted's service as Solicitor General, Texas achieved an unprecedented series of landmark national victories.

Prior to becoming Solicitor General, he served as the Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, as Associate Deputy Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice, and as Domestic Policy Advisor on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign.

Ted graduated with honors from Princeton University and with high honors from Harvard Law School. He served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist on the U.S. Supreme Court. He was the first Hispanic ever to clerk for the Chief Justice of the United States.

Ted and his wife, Heidi, live in his hometown of Houston, Texas, with their two young daughters, Caroline and Catherine.
The 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference will feature four interactive panel presentations including Tax, Borrow & Spend: How Wolf's Agenda Harms Pennsylvanians and Enriches Unions; Restoring the American Dream; All Politics Are Local; and Litigating for Liberty.  There will be three workshop sessions including: Going Viral: Make Social Media Work for You; Faith of Our Founding Fathers; and Campaigning Like It's 2015, Not 1999

Rep. Vereb leaving Pa. House of Representatives

Mike Vereb is putting politics behind him in a big way.

The five-term Pennsylvania state legislator resigned last month as chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Committee after his party's disastrous showing in the November General Election. (Republicans lost every countywide race.)

Now he's leaving the state House of Representatives, announcing Tuesday that he will not seek re-election to another term in Montgomery County's 150th House District, a very safe Republican district that he could have held for the next decade or more.

It's a dramatic about-face for what looked like a promising political career for the retired police officer.

Vereb issued the following press release today:
HARRISBURGState Rep. Mike Vereb (R-Montgomery) today announced he will not seek another two-year term serving the residents of Pennsylvania’s 150th Legislative District.

“I can’t thank the residents of the 150th District enough for trusting me with the opportunity to represent them for a decade,” Vereb said.  “I’m proud of what we accomplished.”

Vereb, currently serving his fifth term, first took office as a state representative in 2007 amidst a wave of reform.  He served on a bipartisan commission established that year by the speaker of the House to bring transparency and accountability to the institution’s procedures.

Vereb served two terms as House Republican Caucus Secretary, a leadership position earned when he was selected by his colleagues.

During his tenure in the House, four bills Vereb introduced were signed into law.  When his sudden cardiac arrest prevention legislation was signed into law in 2012, Vereb helped make Pennsylvania the first state in the nation to pass a law protecting its student athletes from this threat.

Vereb sponsored a law giving crime victims a voice in the parole process by allowing them to be heard at parole hearings.  Another law he introduced strengthened penalties against coaches and other sports officials who sexually prey on youth athletes.

Vereb also sponsored a law to protect crime victims and their families against re-victimization by their criminal aggressors.

Vereb also served as co-chairman of the Basic Education Funding Commission, which developed a fair and reasonable formula to distribute state education dollars among Pennsylvania school districts.  He serves as chairman of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) Safety and Security Committee, a voting member of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency and as chairman of the commission’s Criminal Justice Advisory Committee.

Vereb helped usher the Commonwealth’s recent transportation funding plan through the state House and secured funding for several local bridge projects, including the replacement of Betzwood Bridge.

“When my term ends later this year, I’ll look forward to new opportunities and challenges,” Vereb said.  “I still have a year left to serve and I plan to make it a good one.”
