Hillary Clinton, the Faux Feminist

Share

She again exposes her hypocrisy on standing against sexual abuse, because for her, it’s about power.

By Thomas Gallatin · at The Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/53766-hillary-clinton-the-faux-feminist

The New York Times reported Friday that, during the 2008 campaign, Hillary Clinton essentially gave a pass to one of her close advisers who was accused of sexual harassment. The Times alleges, “Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling, and the young woman was moved to a new job.”

Do Dems have a Man Problem?

By Carla D’Addesi

“How was your day?” a mom asked her son as he climbed into the car in the school pick-up line of a pricey, Main Line, PA private school. “At our assembly today, I learned that I should hate myself because I am a straight, white male,” replied her 14 year old! Self-esteem & soul crushing moments like this are happening all too frequently in our schools- both public and private, resulting in generations of emasculated males.

We must stop indoctrinating boys in feminist ideology!

To appear “Politically Correct,” schools are inviting Feminist, Democratic, Agenda-Driven organizations into school assemblies nationwide to teach young boys to feel guilty and ashamed of their gender and their race. LGBT topics are advocated to

Wagner Supports Banning Felons from Receiving Public Pension Benefits

HARRISBURG – Senator Scott Wagner (R-York) supported a proposal that would strengthen the state’s ability to remove pension benefits from employees who commit felonies or serve more than five years in prison due to state and federal offenses while on the job.

Wagner, who is a cosponsor of the measure introduced by Senator John DiSanto (R-Dauphin/Perry), said the bill is needed to close existing loopholes in the system.

“When I first got to Harrisburg in 2014, I looked at the portraits of former legislative leaders hanging in the halls of the Capitol,” Wagner said. “Several of those leaders abused the public trust and

School Board Directors go to Harrisburg

 

It’s not what you think. We are conservative school board members who banded together over similar new construction horror stories. The purpose of the trip was a meeting with Representative Hickernell, Chairman of the House Education Committee and Representative Garth Evertt. The four of us came from across the state. Myself from Upper Perkiomen SD, Ron Snell, from Montoursville Area SD, Joy Beers, from Lehighton SD, and Tom Harley, from Indiana SD.

 

None of us were able to change the outcome of new construction in our districts although Upper Perkiomen did vote to terminate the project after it was started, but the administration did not send the termination letters to the contractors. Instead they

End ‘Groundhog Day’ tax nightmare in PA

Groundhog Day is a popular tradition celebrated in Pennsylvania. It’s also personified by a movie in which a man finds himself trapped in a time warp, doomed to relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right.

Ironically, it’s that way every year for homeowners in Pennsylvania, who are doomed with ever-increasing property taxes as school districts estimate higher budgets. Legislators have allowed this regressive system to continue far too long.

But last year was different. In November, Pennsylvania voters sent a clear mandate to eliminate property taxes by passing a referendum allowing for a 100 percent homestead exclusion on the property tax. Now a financial solution to replace the school

On expelling members of Congress

Share

Response Action Network™

What doesCongress do when one of its members is convicted of crime, or strays into the mire of treason? It can expel them. The process is rarely used, and this report(link is external) from the Congressional Research Service about expelling congressmen for illegal acts makes for interestinghistory about the group Mark Twain dubbed our “native criminal class.”

Twenty members have been expelled during our history, most of them prior to the Civil War. The last expulsion was in 2002. Under what circumstances a member can be expelled are somewhat vague. For example, regarding questionable conduct before a member is elected:

Investigation blames ex-FBI chief for misleading agency statements BOB UNRUH/WND

There already is a public campaign to have special counsel Robert Mueller removed from his position and even prosecuted.

Larry Klayman, who founded Washington watchdog Judicial Watch and now is with Freedom Watch, explains: “You know me as the only lawyer ever to have a court rule that a sitting president, Bill Clinton, committed a crime. You also know me as someone who will go the distance and will not let establishment political concerns compromise my actions.”

So his call is to remove Mueller “and the despicable and conflicted Obama-Clinton deep-state prosecutors.”

Now there is an eye-opening report at Judicial Watch with evidence indicating Mueller approved a series
