State Representative Daryl Metcalfe is viewed as the most conservative member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly and because of that he is usually under attack by liberals in both parties. However, attacks from the Left have intensified and become personal — an increasingly common tactic of the Left. Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa of Allegheny County and the Attorney General have led the attacks.November 21, 2013 // 0 Comments
Today Senator Bob Casey, Jr. joined the other Senate Democrats, except Senator Carl Levin (D-MI), Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR), to rewrite the rules and remove the minority party’s ability to filibuster judicial nominees requiring a 60 vote threshold to advance the nominee. Such a move leaves the path wide open for President Obama to remake the US judicial system. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) is appalled by Senator Casey’s continued votes which attack the family and destroys the lives of babies in the womb.November 20, 2013 // 0 Comments
ast night the State House voted 106-95 to pass a transportation bill that includes the second largest tax increase in history — a $2 billion gas tax increase to be exact!! It would raise gasoline taxes by as much as 28.5 cents per gallon at the pump — making ours the highest in the nation , while drivers would pay more for licenses, registration and some traffic violations.November 19, 2013 // 0 Comments
President Abraham Lincoln’s historic address came during the dedication of Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg. Are our Pennsylvania students learning/memorizing these words and the context in which they were spoken? Not likely, but definitely not if PA Core Standards are implemented!!November 15, 2013 // 0 Comments
Those supporting Common Core — in PA called Pennsylvania Core Standards – a simple name change offered by the PA Department of Education to appease those of us who say it’s a national curriculum, which all the evidence points to — is mounting an all out offensive by Chambers of Commerce and local school boards from across the state. They want this ‘monster’ in our schools!! Thus far the supporters of the Pennsylvania Core Standards are outnumbering the opponents in submittals to the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC). We need those who oppose this total remaking of our education system to send their concerns to the IRRC.November 14, 2013 // 1 Comment
The next hearing of the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) concerning Common Core is November 21st at 10:00 a.m. in Harrisburg. They will be hearing testimony at that time, but if you cannot attend the meeting, they will accept your written testimony up till November 19th.November 13, 2013 // 0 Comments

2.) Michael Farris, Founder and Chairman of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), is asking for us to set aside November 17th as a special day of prayer for the Romeike family. Remember this is the German homeschool family that came to this country to escape persecution from the German authorities because of their decision to homeschool. They were originally granted temporary asylum by an immigration judge, but the Obama administration appealed that decision and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the immigration judge’s decision. In Romeike v. Holder, HSLDA is asking the Supreme Court to uphold America as a place of refuge for those who are persecuted for their faith. Michael Farris says, “I feel good about our argument, but we must all recognize that the Supreme Court takes a very limited number of cases—so please pray that the Court will agree to hear our appeal.” Did you know the Supreme Court of Germany declared that the purpose of the German ban on homeschooling was to “counteract the development of religious and philosophically motivated parallel societies”? By the way that law was enacted by Adolph Hitler!
The end of June this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that banned spreading homosexual propaganda to minors. It does not ban homosexual activity, which has been legal since 1993, but bans the indoctrination of minors. Homosexual activists and their allies are expressing outrage that Russia would pass such a law and are especially voicing concern that athletes who identify as homosexual and participate in the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia will be arrested. The Russian government has assured them that will not happen.
