    In February 2022, I attended the Republican State Committee Meeting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Our job, as state committee members, was to interview, vet, select, and support endorsed candidates through the primary and election cycles. This election cycle, for the first time in decades, the top three positions for governor, lieutenant governor, and Senate in Pennsylvania are "open seats." An open seat is when no incumbent is running, due to term limits or resignations. Open seats always draw more candidates. But this cycle, we Republican state committee members were called upon to complete the endorsement process for approximately 30 candidates, running...

    An illegal alien has been sentenced after being convicted for stealing a disabled American veteran’s identity to secure public welfare benefits and commit crimes, federal prosecutors reveal.

According to prosecutors, Alonso submitted an application in May 2019 to receive Title XVI Supplemental Security Income — cash payments that are reserved for elderly, blind, or disabled Americans — using the veteran’s Social Security Number. The...

    YOU KILLED PEOPLE.. An Iraq veteran gave George W. Bush a stark reminder this past weekend that although he’s now a liberal media darling, there are plenty of Americans who remember the lies that led to millions of deaths. Corporal Mike Prysner was captured on video launching into a tirade against Bush during a speech in Beverly Hills. “When are you going to apologize for the million Iraqis who are dead because you lied?” Prysner yelled at Bush. “You lied about weapons of mass destruction! You lied about connections to 9/11! You sent me to Iraq! You sent me to...

    This is a follow up to a story from last month, with a new update as well. We told you about a company called FakeMaskUSA which fell victim to the tech tyrants, in this case PayPal. Our original reporting can be found below, but long story short is FakeMaskUSA had some $90,0000 in company assets that they had no means of recovering. This seems to be the way these companies do business, with them taking punitive action and for those punished having no means to fight back. For example, Facebook is famous for suspending accounts of people who violate their...

    The decaying body of an Army veteran went undiscovered at a Massachusetts facility for a month — because no one bothered to look in an emergency exit stairwell, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. A 45-page report released Thursday detailed the disappearance and death of Timothy White, 62, whose “significantly decayed” corpse was discovered in June 2020 in a stairwell at the Bedford Veterans Quarters in Massachusetts. White, who had recently been homeless, started living at the privately operated, VA-owned building in January 2020. He was reported missing from his single-occupancy room on May 13 and lived just down...
