You should see a green "Secure" padlock now when you click on our new donate link and that signifies that your transaction will be encrypted by the newly...

    The Philly Voice ^ | April 22, 2017 | Daniel Craig
    President Donald Trump plans to hold a "BIG rally" in Pennsylvania next weekend ó although the exact time, place and reason for the event are not known. Trump, tweeted from his personal account Saturday afternoon that the rally would be held Saturday, April 29, without immediately providing further details.

The event also falls on the same night as the White House Correspondent's Dinner, which Trump has decided to skip, breaking years of precedent. The president spent much time campaigning in Pennsylvania, and taking the state proved a...

    The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the nicest phone Iíve ever held. Itís a beautiful combination of glass, metal, and an absolutely massive screen in a body thatís much smaller than you might expect. And that might not be enough to make it stand out anymore. There are two versions of the S8: the standard Galaxy S8 with a 5.8-inch screen and the larger S8 Plus with a 6.2-inch screen. Both are available for preorder on March 30th and will be shipping in the US on April 21st. Pricing, as always with Samsung, is up to the carriers ó but you...

    We strongly support President Trump in his effort to put America First and we are holding small rallies to show support for President Trumpís ďContract with the American VoterĒ. Other issues are not being addressed at these rallies. Blue collar voters helped propel President Trump to victory and these rallies will help provide those forgotten voices a mechanism so they can be heard. There was a spontaneous uprising of grassroots activists that voted for President Trump to find a way to let people know that we support his agenda. Unlike those protesting against President Trumpís vision, we are a diverse...
