Political targeting of Walker supporters proves it can happen here


by Rick Manning at The Hill

It can’t happen here.

Government targeting and intimidation against political opponents is something found in North Korea or Iran, not in the United States of America.

Tell that to conservative groups in the state of Wisconsin whose leaders have had their private homes raided by local police due to their attempts to support Gov. Scott Walker (R) during the labor unions’ failed attempt at recalling him from office.

After losing at the ballot box, Big Labor allies in the Milwaukee County district attorney’s office have conducted a secret witch hunt of their opponents’ activities that is specifically designed to intimidate and discourage their future political participation.

Using leaks to the media to question credibility, coupled with kicking in a

Metcalfe Reloads House Bill 357

Confirms 10th Annual PA 2nd Amendment Action Day will salute all who protect and serve

HARRISBURG — State Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) today announced the reintroduction of his Right to Bear Arms Protection Act that would make all future federal gun control laws unenforceable within the Commonwealth (House Bill 357).

“The ongoing acts of mob violence taking place in Baltimore should offer undeniable proof to all elected officials that disarming law-abiding citizens through senseless gun control laws is the wrong answer when it comes to protecting life, liberty and

Baltimore riots mark city’s tourism suicide note


by Rick Manning at NetRightDaily

“I wanted to give space to those who wished to destroy.” That is how Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake described her policy which effectively told police to stand down as hoodlums smashed store windows, looted 7-11s, and forced attendees at a Baltimore Oriole-Boston Red Sox baseball game to remain in the stadium because it wasn’t safe outside.

The resulting violence escalated as flyers were distributed describing how the city was going to have a “purge” styled after the movie of the same name where all laws were suspended for one night. On Monday alone, seven police officers were injured with one reportedly “unresponsive.” Looting occurred in broad daylight with cars being torched, and bottles, rocks, and other large objects

ABUSIVE OPERATION: Operation Choke Point, run by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice, is attempting to ‘choke’ out the businesses the Obama administration deems undesirable.

By M.D. Kittle |

North Carolina businessman Brennan Appel found his successful company caught in the crosshairs of a murky U.S. Department of Justice initiative targeting merchants that don’t fit into the Obama administration’s idea of what an American business ought to be.

Appel, owner of Global Hookah Distributors, which sells tobacco and smoking-related products, says he’s the victim of Operation Choke Point, a shadowy, multi-agency effort ostensibly aimed at going after unlawful consumer fraud by “choking” off access to

Let the BS begin; the EPSD 2016 budget primer


The April 27th East Penn school board meeting started off with a bang. The fireworks began when a citizen went to the podium and gave a blistering account of several actions taken by the administration, one that appears blatantly illegal. It was also pointed out how the administration had not spent money budgeted for student safety, but still found the funds for pay raises for administrators.

Board member, Ms. Donches later followed by Ziad Munson asked the administration to explain their line item cuts after it was announced by Superintendent Schilder that he had instructed each Principal to cut their budgets by 10%. It seems the budget can be cut when it comes to education spending on students and

Campaign Night or Watching Cartoons at Home, Which was Best?


By Janice Bowman,

Editor’s note, Ms. Bowman has been following Common Core for years and has researched it for years.

Tonight, I attended the League of Women Voters Campaign Night for the East Penn School District candidates and found just what I thought I would. Ken Bacher, Paul Champagne, and Rich Manthesz restated the talking points as we all know them. The questions could have been canned and answered for any school board campaign night!

I learned that it is as biased as I had called out on my question card. Since this question will never see the light of day with who we have covering our questions for the candidates, let me share it with all of you now in hopes you the student,

The Candidates Night sponsored by the League of Women Voters and EPIC (East Penn Invested Citizens) was held at the Macungie Institute’s meeting hall. The event was called to introduce and hear from the seven candidates running for the East Penn School Board. Of those seven candidates, only three were in attendance, Ken Bacher, Paul Champagne and Richard Mathesz. Carol Allen, Charles Ballard and Chris Donatelli had previous commitments but their letters were read to the audience. Finally, School Director Wally Vinovskis was expected but did not show and did not notify the organizers that he was not coming.

As for the audience, there were 28 people and 3 news reporters present. A far smaller crowd than the same event produced

Oklahoma Defeats Push for Risky Article V Convention


by Alex Newman at The New American

After a long and arduous battle in Oklahoma, lawmakers late this week ultimately decided to quash various measures that would have put the state on record calling for a Constitutional Convention (Con Con) under Article V of the U.S. Constitution. The victory for anti-Con-Con forces in Oklahoma was especially noteworthy because U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, a Republican who has a positive and conservative reputation among most Oklahomans, was strongly in favor of calling a convention. However, in the end, lawmakers and activists told The New Americanthat the risks to the existing Constitution of calling a convention in the current political climate were simply too great.

On April 21, the state House of Representatives voted 56 to 42 to
