The congressional seat in PA’s 18th District has been vacant since October 2017 when Tim Murphy resigned. Voters will determine who finishes out his term on March 13th. Turnout by educated voters is crucial in this race. The AFA of PA has contacted the candidates and created a voter guide asking crucial questions dealing with abortion, special rights for homosexuals and transgenders, First Amendment rights of pastors, etc. Don’t live in the 18th Congressional District? Feel free to share with someone you know who does.
State Representative Cris Dush is circulating a co-sponsorship memo in order to begin impeachment proceedings against the five PA Supreme Court justices which voted to declare the PA congressional map unconstitutional. The memo notes the order “blatantly and clearly contradicts the plain language of the Pennsylvania Constitution, engaged in misbehavior in office.” Ask your State Rep to sign on as a co-sponsor.
It’s very true that elections have consequences and voters should be informed on where candidates stand on the issues that are important to them. Incumbents have a voting record that tells us where they really stand on life, the Second Amendment, the Constitution, immigration, illegal aliens, etc. How did your US Rep and US Senators vote on the issues important to you?
A birth certificate is a legal document that requires legislative action to change its content, yet the Bureau of Vital Records, which falls under the PA Department of Health (PADOH), has taken it upon itself to change “Mother” and “Father” designations to “Parent” and “Parent.” This is an illegal action on the part of the PADOH and must be addressed by the legislature.
Governor Wolf has done it again. This time he has nominated a man who thinks he is a women to be PA’s next Secretary of Health. How is it that a man who doesn’t know what sex he is is qualified to be in that position? In this nomination Governor Wolf is playing to his liberal base once again. Confirmation of this individual by the State Senate would send the wrong message and they need to hear from those who think it is a bad idea. Sign the petition to oppose Dr. “Rachel” Levine.
Time is very short for your municipality’s elected officials to take action to prohibit mini-casinos from being established within its borders. These so-called mini-casinos can house between 300 and 750 slot machines and up to 40 table games! This would be bad news for any municipality and the state allows local elected officials to opt out, but they need to act NOW!
First Lady Melania Trump has done a great job designing the Christmas theme for the White House – from Merry Christmas in the official White House Christmas card to actually saying those words in the news release her office issued. The White House decorations even include a nativity scene. So . . . if the White House can display such an “unconstitutional” nativity scene, every government building in the US that does the same thing should not be badgered by the ACLU or the Freedom from Religion Foundation!
The Senate has advanced the tax relief bill — HR 1 — to the floor for debate and the vote is expected soon — possibly today. This bill would bring much needed tax reform to both individual and corporate taxes and would repeal the Obamacare individual mandate. Ask Senators Casey and Toomey to support this bill.
The end of October saw the biggest gambling expansion in Pennsylvania signed into law. The expansion makes Pennsylvania the Nevada of the east and will only create more problems down the road! We now have online gambling, gambling at airports, video gaming terminals at truck stops, mini casinos , etc. etc. However, the law does allow local municipalities to opt out of allowing mini-casinos and certain counties can opt out VGTs in truck stops. But they only have until the end of the year to pass resolutions and get them to Harrisburg!
Under the guise of fighting poverty, bills have been introduced that would lead to tracking students throughout their life. Specifically HR 4174 would implement recommendations from a commission created last year which would remove the prohibition on lifelong tracking of students through college and the workforce.
