Rick Saccone, the GOP pick
to replace Tim Murphy,
viewed as ´unabashedly´ Christian

Pittsburgh Tribune Review, by Wes Ventiecher

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 11/14/2017 7:59:45 AM

Over six years of voting in the General Assembly, Republican Rep. Rick Saccone garnered perhaps the most public attention for his support of legislation promoting Christian values. Saccone, the Republican Party´s newly selected nominee for a March special election to represent the 18th Congressional District, promoted bills that would have allowed schools to display the national motto, “In God We Trust,” and would have declared 2012 to be “The Year of the Bible.” In a speech following his nomination Saturday, Saccone, who represents the 39th legislative district covering parts of Allegheny and Washington counties, pledged that if elected to Congress he would

One voice in a sea of dirty democrats who brought Pennsylvania into a swamp of its very own. We´ve got a long way to go.

I have met and been in the company of both Rick Saccone and his wife. They are both over bearing and in my opinion an embarrassment. Rick is nothing more than just another swamp critter. He would not be my choice.

#2 most "unabashedly" Christians are overbearing. Especially the born again ones. Chip Gaines the Carpenter comes to mind. And W. Bush of course.

1) The Constitution forbids religious tests for office (be they for or against). If the Democrats support "unabashedly" Muslim reps, like Keith Ellison, they have not cause to complain.
2) I would not describe any of my unabashedly Christian neighbors as overbearing. Many politicians (who are not my neighbors) are.
3) Did any of Saccone´s religious legislation pass? where was he on actual policy issues? The Separation of Church and State does not in the least forbid bringing religious values into the political arena. In fact, I´d say its impossible to avoid that.

Texas AG Paxton rejects Romney
standard from Roy Moore case
Politico, by Josh Gerstein    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 11/20/2017 7:48:04     Post Reply
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton isn´t on board with former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney´s approach to the allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. After Moore supporters said he was entitled to a presumption of innocence regarding claims that he had inappropriate contacts with teenage girls, Romney took to Twitter to say the standard used in criminal cases isn´t the correct one to apply in the political realm. "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections," he said. Paxton said in an interview airing Sunday that he has a different take from that of the former Massachusetts governor and potential

A judge this week has ruled that New Orleans must pay approximately $28 million in refunds to thousands of people who paid fines for traffic camera tickets during the initial years of the enforcement program, according to the lead attorney in the class action lawsuit Friday (Nov. 17). On Wednesday, Ad hoc Judge Robert Burns of the Orleans Parish Civil District Court ruled the city needs to return the money it collected on any tickets issued from Jan. 1, 2008, to Nov. 3, 2011, plaintiff´s attorney Joseph McMahon said. He estimates a total of 250,000 people deserve to be refunded for

How a New York Senator Can Rag

On November 16, 2017, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) kicked off her run for the 2020 presidency by intoning that Bill Clinton should have resigned (in disgrace?) in 1998 over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Talk sure is cheap, isn´t it? That´s because the Democrats had in their power to dump Clinton in 1999 and kick him right out of office – and took a pass on it. They could even have accomplished this with a minority of their Senate membership. And not only would it have been easy, but it would even have redounded to their benefit, by guaranteeing their continued rule

Speaking in an exclusive radio interview, senatorial candidate Roy Moore charged the establishment wing of the Republican party—led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell—is in cahoots with the Democratic Party to stop Moore’s campaign. Moore framed the Alabama senate race as representing a critical juncture for the future of the country, explaining that a revolution in the Senate is necessary in order for Trump to enact his populist agenda, especially on border security and repealing and replacing Obamacare.

With less than a month to go before Alabama’s special election to fill the Senate seat left vacant by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Republican candidate Roy Moore refuses to quit the race amid fallout over credible allegations of sexual assault dating from the 1970s, including that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32. Some polls still show Moore leading his Democratic opponent Doug Jones, while a poll conducted by the National Republican Senate Committee earlier this week shows Moore trailing Jones by 12 points.

A nationwide network of Catholic prep schools offered exclusively to low-income families is warning that the House version of tax reform contains provisions that could devastate their funding model, and could spell the end of an educational program that has graduated tens of thousands of low-income children in America’s inner cities. Although Catholic, the Cristo Rey Network of college preparatory academies is open to low-income children of all faiths, and operates in 21 states and the District of Columbia using what’s called a “Corporate Work Study Program.” “In lieu of tuition, every student works one day a week at an entry-level professional

Mitt Romney is edging closer to a 2018 Senate run. The former GOP presidential nominee is huddling with Utah’s class of GOP power brokers, contacting the state’s major political donors, and hitting the trail for candidates running in local races amid mounting speculation that the state’s longtime senator, Orrin Hatch, will retire. Romney is also raising money for House and Senate Republicans, winning him favor with GOP leaders ahead of a treacherous midterm election.

Presidential candidates have been doing it for years. They raise money and explore their viability long before they announce they’re running. And that practice is increasingly trickling down to the House and Senate level. The latest example comes from the Montana Senate race, where Republican candidate Russell Fagg won’t have to disclose any of the money he’s raised until January — seven months after he formed his exploratory committee for Senate this summer.

Lawmakers put the finishing touches this week on military funding legislation that contains a provision that stands to significantly benefit Amazon. The amendment, Section 801 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), would help Amazon establish a tight grip on the lucrative, $53 billion government acquisitions market, experts say. The provision, dubbed the “Amazon amendment” by experts, according to an article in The Intercept, would allow for the creation of an online portal that government employees could use to purchase everyday items such as office supplies or furniture.

The Senate unanimously confirmed on Thursday John Raymond Lausch Jr. to be the next top federal prosecutor in Chicago — a city President Donald Trump has singled out for blistering criticism because of its struggles to curb violent crime. Lausch, 47, will officially become the new U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois when Trump signs his commission. The president is traveling in Asia, so it is not known when he will sign the paperwork — a formality at this point.

What has the world come to when even bourbon gets caught up in politics? (Actually, don´t answer that.) Over the weekend, bourbon brand Jim Beam got dragged into the fight over women´s rights after its spokeswoman, actress Mila Kunis, revealed that she´s been sending monthly donations to Planned Parenthood in Vice President Mike Pence´s name. See, Kunis doesn´t agree with Pence´s non-wavering stance against abortion rights. And as a guest on TBS´s "Conan," she told host Conan O´Brien that she chose to voice her disagreement by adding his name to a list of recurring donations made to the women´s health care provider.

Former IRS executive Lois G.

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate. “Whenever Mss.

Doug Jones, the Democrat running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, says he loves to hunt but the Second Amendment has “limitations.” He believes that every right enumerated in the Bill of Rights is limited, and the Second Amendment is no exception.According to the Alabama Political Reporter, Jones described himself as “a Second Amendment guy,” but stressed that some gun control is necessary. He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be

The father of one of the UCLA basketball players arrested on suspicion of shoplifting while on tour in China isn´t praising President Donald Trump for his involvement in their release.

Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison.

Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died of natural causes at Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement. TMZ was first to report on the killer´s death. The celebrity-news site reported that Debra Tate, the sister of Sharon, said she received a call

Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus. Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight. While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to cops, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump. In this story, Kenneth Starr and the

Washington - President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. (Snip) Says Trump: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!" Trump later tweeted: "Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!"
