I want to post a big and grateful shout out to the usual suspects who ‘held down the TPW fort’ this weekend! 🙂 Good morning, LD/JD!! 🙂


How a Pennsylvania Democrat plans to win a district that Trump won by 20 points

Many in Western Pennsylvania are hopeful that Lamb is the future. The young former Marine and federal prosecutor has bucked the national party, promising voters that he won’t support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker if elected, nor will he support a ban on assault weapons. Lamb also says that while he is personally pro-life, he would not cast a vote for a 20-week abortion ban.

“I don’t think he’s ever mentioned Trump,” Weis said, and Hughes added that she has hardly ever heard him mention Saccone either. Instead, he’s focusing on a message the two volunteers said people are excited about: protecting social security and Medicare, fighting for labor unions, and fighting for affordable health care.

“I am quite pleased with his message,” Hughes said.

But Hughes did admit Saturday that she was originally upset by Lamb’s stance on the assault weapons ban, which the Democrat stood by following the recent Parkland shooting that left 17 people dead at a Florida high school.

Thomas and Rankin, both of whom said they were lifelong Democrats, explained that other issues were driving their support for Lamb. For Thomas, it was his support for Medicare and Medicaid, as well as safeguarding Social Security and his promise to protect unions and union workers. Rankin, on the other hand, said she admired Lamb’s independent spirit.



Democrat Conor Lamb heads into the final day of the special congressional election in western Pennsylvania with the lead, according to a new public poll released Monday.

Monmouth University used three different turnout models ahead of Tuesday’s special election —and Lamb has the advantage in all three of them.

Lamb leads Saccone, 51 percent to 45 percent, the poll shows — using a turnout model that mirrors a Democratic surge that’s appeared in other special elections throughout the last year. Three percent of likely voters are undecided, and 1 percent would support another candidate.

The poll suggests Lamb can win even if that Democratic surge falls short, however. In a more-restrictive turnout model — designed to mirror a lower-turnout electorate that typically votes in midterm elections — Lamb has a slim, 2-point lead, 49 percent to 47 percent. A higher-turnout scenario, more similar to a presidential election, produces a 7-point Lamb lead, 51 percent to 44 percent.

“When added to a potential Democratic surge that has been building for weeks, Lamb appears to have picked off enough Republican-leaning voters to take a lead going into this contest’s final weekend,” said Monmouth University pollster Patrick Murray. “It would mark an extraordinary swing from Trump’s nearly 20-point victory here in 2016 if he could hold on to win.”


Wait, Biden campaigned for a pro-life, assault-weapons-supporting candidate?

Where are all the donut accounts slamming Biden??

Sorry, but I get so tired of the selective outrage from the right side of the party.


Haiti hires Clinton-linked PR firm to soften image in Washington

The government of Haiti, so cash-strapped that its teachers are going unpaid, has retained a high-powered, top-dollar international PR firm with ties to a former member of Hillary Clinton’s staff to boost the country’s image in Washington.

The hiring of Mercury Public Affairs has raised uncomfortable questions on the island about the use of limited resources amid a reported budget deficit and customs strike that has paralyzed the country in recent weeks.

During the popular Saturday political talk show Ranmase in Port-au-Prince, Haitian political analyst Auguste D’Meza ripped into the government for spending taxpayer dollars to “ameliorate its image in Washington” instead of creating jobs.

“PR for what?” Sabine Guerrier, who handled international relations for opposition presidential candidate Jean-Charles Moïse, told McClatchy. “Instead, of spending money on public relations in the U.S., why not spend the money so teachers can get paid. Why are you not spending the money on roads, schools, infrastructure?”

talk about clueless….


Wasteful spending.


Another example showing how vile these people are


The Trump administration has decided to withdraw an Obama-era rule that would have set new standards for the way animals should be treated if their meat is going to sold as “certified organic.”

Finalized under the Obama administration in April 2016, the rule largely dictated how producers and handlers participating in the National Organic Program are required to treat livestock and poultry to ensure their wellbeing.

The rule stipulated, for example, that poultry must be housed in spaces that are big enough for the birds to move freely, stretch their wings, stand normally and engage in natural behaviors. Livestock, meanwhile, must be provided access to an outdoor space year round.



Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) today introduced legislation to protect the country’s election infrastructure from cyber-hackers by requiring the use of voter-verified paper ballots or a paper ballot backup in federal elections. It authorizes emergency funding to empower every state to use voter-verified paper ballots that produce an auditable paper trail, beginning with the 2018 elections. It also addresses the need to ensure safe and secure software is utilized in voting machines on Election Day.

The Securing America’s Elections Act expands on progress made in Hawai‘i and 14 other states that currently produce voter-verified paper ballots to provide the American people with a secure, reliable, and independent record of their votes.


Food for thought…

A bit of good news:

Great News for Great Rivers!
The wild and wonderful Illinois and Smith Rivers just received more protection!

The recent news came in a letter from Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, who oversees the Forest Service. Perdue, despite pressure by a Utah Congressman and mining interests, called the decision to withdraw the area from mining for a period of 20 years, “final.”
