  • Biden appoints transgender Penn. official Rachel Levine despite grisly record on nursing home deaths

    As the media hail president-elect Joe Biden’s appointment of the first-ever trans cabinet official, few note how she presided over a massive Covid-19 death toll in care homes in her prior post as Pennsylvania’s health secretary. Biden announced on Tuesday that he will appoint Dr. Rachel Levine as assistant health secretary in his administration, setting her up to become the first openly transgender official confirmed by the Senate. Levine has served in her post as Pennsylvania health secretary since 2018 and, before that, was the state’s assistant health secretary for a year. She had previously spent two years as physician...

    I was standing outside the state capitol in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where gun-toting defenders of President Donald Trump were supposedly going to start marching at noon. I could see cops, I could see National Guardsmen, and I could see dozens of reporters, but actual protesters were scarce. I did spot a fellow in a Gadsden Flag facemask and a woman whose shirt displayed a slogan about rebellion against tyranny, and as they passed behind me I heard him crack a joke: "I should walk up to the photographers here and say, 'Excuse me, can you direct me to the armed insurrection?'"...
  • Fact-checking Trump’s false claims about Pennsylvania’s election before his supporters attacked the Capitol

    Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | January 6, 2021 | Jonathan Lai
    President Donald Trump was wrong. There is no discrepancy between the number of voters and the number of votes counted. The claim that there were more ballots than voters comes from a flawed analysis done by state Republican lawmakers who relied on incomplete data and a misunderstanding of how those data are collected. [snip] Trump’s false claim: “More than 60,000 ballots in Pennsylvania were reported received back, they got back, before they were ever supposedly mailed out. In other words you got the ballot before you mailed it!”The reality: As with the claim about discrepancies in vote histories, this appears...

    DEC. 28, 2020 HARRISBURG – A group of state lawmakers performing extensive analysis of election data today revealed troubling discrepancies between the numbers of total votes counted and total number of voters who voted in the 2020 General Election, and as a result are questioning how the results of the presidential election could possibly have been certified by Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and Governor Tom Wolf. These findings are in addition to prior concerns regarding actions by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Secretary, and others impacting the conduct of the election. A comparison of official county election...

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) on Sunday urged President Trump to sign the coronavirus aid package that has passed Congress, warning the president’s legacy is at stake. “You don’t get everything you want, even if you’re president of the United States,” Toomey said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I think the COVID relief measures are really, really important.” “In my state, as in many other states, we have governors who are closing down businesses again,” he added. Toomey called it a “hopeful sign” that Trump has not yet vetoed the bill passed by Congress, even as he has demanded larger direct payments...

    Shocking photos show what happened when a dozen tractor-trailers skidded out of control on snow-covered Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania during Wednesday night’s winter storm — killing one person and injuring a number of others. The 66-vehicle pileup, including 55 trucks and 11 passenger vehicles, over a mile span on the westbound side of the highway happened around 3 p.m. Wednesday in Clinton County, State Police said Thursday.

    Lawsuit represents second Pennsylvania educator who recently sued former employers alleging First Amendment retaliation It appears school district officials Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, have a bit of a problem with public school educators who share conservative views on their personal social media accounts. The College Fix recently noted the story of Principal Amy Sacks of the Perkiomen Valley School District who was fired for posting conservative memes on her Facebook account. Sacks is suing for First and Fourteenth Amendment violations, as well as for political retaliation. Now, just a few miles away in the neighboring North Penn School District, a longtime...

    As a general matter, it has always been my view that when you begin a legal argument with a “The Sky is Falling” pronouncement, where the “warning” tells the Court nothing that it does not know already, you are actually insulting the intelligence of the Judge — or in this case the Justices — by wasting time with useless theatrics. This was my reaction to one of the sentences set forth in the opening of the Response filed by the Pennsylvania state defendants to the Emergency Application for Injunctive Relief filed by Congressman Mike Kelly and other Plaintiffs earlier today....

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) said President Trump’s reported attempts to overturn the results of the presidential election in Pennsylvania were “completely unacceptable.” “It’s completely unacceptable and it’s not going to work and the president should give up trying to get legislatures to overturn the results of the elections in their respective states,” Toomey told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Toomey added that he spoke on the phone with President-elect Joe Biden last week, saying “we had a very pleasant conversation” regarding potential areas of cooperation. The Pennsylvania Republican, who has said he will not seek a third term in 2022, is one...

    The State of Texas filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court shortly before midnight on Monday challenging the election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on the grounds that they violate the Constitution. Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures. Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Finally, Texas argues that there were...

    Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito asked officials in Pennsylvania to file briefs by Tuesday at 9 a.m. in response to a lawsuit filed by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) in a bid to overturn the state’s election results. Tuesday, notably, is the “safe harbor” deadline that requires controversies surrounding elections to be ended so states can choose their electors before the Dec. 14 meeting of the Electoral College. Alito initially called for response arguments by 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9, before it was changed. The Tuesday, Dec. 8 deadline could be a signal that the Supreme Court takes up Kelly’s case,...

    On Friday, 76 of 141 Republican representatives in Pennsylvania sent a letter asking Congress asking them to reject the state’s 20 electors, appointed by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, who would be voting for Joe Biden. The representatives also asked for an independent prosecutor and a review of the agency that oversees elections. The letter pointed to the fact that Governor Wolf has repeatedly undermined election protections in the state. “For these reasons,” they wrote to the state’s Congressional delegation. “We the undersigned members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly urge you to object … to the Electoral College votes received from...

    Anyone who can look at this fact and not acknowledge voter fraud is either extremely bad at math or a purely partisan hack with no sense of honor. It is impossible for more mail-in ballots to come in than were sent out unless there was a massive and undeniable voter fraud scheme in play. That’s the takeaway from evidence posted by Pennsylvania Senator Doug Mastriano on Friday.

    @Maximus_4EVR FYI SCOTUS Update - Can't confirm yet, but RNC source is saying SCOTUS to take Kelly/Parnell case; Five Justices agree to hear. This is unconfirmed. IMHO I do expect Alito to grant injunction. Keep Praying. @Maximus_4EVR *Same source "Justice Roberts" is firmly opposed to "hearing" case. We should have word in coming hours. Maybe by morning. I hope I'm right more about this than all others
