Dems make a power move as McClinton assumes presiding role in State House, sparking Republican ire

According to a video shared by state House Democrats, a Delaware County judge swore in state Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Philadelphia, on Wednesday during an unpublicized ceremony on the floor of the chamber. That means she is now the presiding officer of the state House until the new session begins Jan. 3, her office said.

Republican leaders called the move a “paperwork insurrection,” and a top GOP source indicated the increasingly messy dispute would end up in court.

Lancaster County gears up for primary races in 2023

On Wednesday, the board of commissioners approved a $30,000 add-on to its ballot-sorting machine to allow election workers to sort mail-in ballots into more localized groups. Next year, election officials will group mail-in ballots by the county’s 19 school districts, rather than its nine state legislative districts, as they did in 2022.

The 2023 municipal primary likely will see far fewer voters weigh in on a slew of local races, but lower turnout doesn’t mean election administration will be a cake walk

After one year of disappointment of left wing bias I finally Unliked LNP + LancasterOnline
No more left wing bias on my feed!
I was wondering if you could give me a second of your time. I found these letters in my attic a few years ago and tried finding the owners. The Letters were from a Corporal in a military branch writing to his wife from Germany in the late 1940's and early 1950's. I'm hoping to get some help returning these to them or living relatives such as their children. I read a few and are beautiful. You can feel the love and bond he has for her. I've posted this for help on my Facebook and with some help from family and friends we think we have a name. 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞
Cpl. Raymond Sweigart. Letters are written to my address so they must have owned the house at some point. I don't want to be on the news. Just want to return this priceless treasure to the rightful family. There is a few letters.
I got a notice on my page; from Congressmen Lloyd Smucker (PA-R) showing his cancellation notice with his subscription to the Sunday News. He asked all that he sent that message to cancel their subscription too. I responded and asked him to stop stalking me. I've blocked him. Thanks! Robert C. Settle, Jr.
So... Why not mention why your Newspaper has once again failed to print in a timely matter. What are you going to blame it on now? They no longer make black ink?

You are becoming very pathetic to even try to read anymore. Your staff and your editor really need to study more and go online less as your writings over the years continue to diminish in quality.

I wish that John Hoober was there to guide you folks. At least he seemed to have a lot of integrity when working.

In case you can't find it here is the link to article which you have published on lancasteronline.com

I will never ever subscribe to this biased newspaper... everything you write about Trump and his followers is so hateful... .. whatever happened to reporting facts and not interjecting your frickin opinion I liked it better when it was 2 separate papers...
It doesn’t take an expert knowledge of history to recognize the tactics of totalitarianism or the actions of those who adopt them. Friends, we raise a hue and cry now, or we lose the opportunity to do so altogether. Freedom of thought and freedom of speech, freedom to view and interpret evidence for oneself without authoritative intervention—these are your precious and hard-won rights and your protections at stake.

Our nation was founded on Enlightenment ideas; the motto “Sapere aude! Dare to know!” encourages the use of one’s own reason in forming judgments. So, here’s a challenge for all those opining freely on the content of Donald Trump's speech: will you take the radical step of listening to it, in full? Oh, that’s right…you probably can't do that anymore: the Ministries of Truth at Facebook and Twitter have deemed it too dangerous for common folk to handle.

I can personally vouch that the media, aided and abetted by Big Daddy tech, have presented a highly distorted and selective view of last Wednesday’s events. I happened to be out there in the chill air of Washington DC. I know what the rally was like; I heard every word of that speech. I am not particularly fond of political speeches as a rule. This one was sincere, predictable, fact-filled and slightly too long. Most remarkably, it was not incendiary. Not even slightly. Not an “insurrectionist” spark in it.

It wasn’t until driving home in the dark that we received word of the rioting and mob violence we’d all supposedly been privy to. Tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands had made their way from across the nation to protest unaddressed fraud in our November election. Neither more nor less than what one might expect of good self-governing citizens. The gathering was peaceful, the march was peaceful, and our time on the capitol lawn was peaceful. It was a polite and friendly group. In a sea of patriots of all ethnicities and ages, stretching as far as the eye could see, I remember seeing only one honest-to-goodness 'weirdo.'

We were there to promote serious debate on the Senate floor concerning our nation’s election. Has any perceptive mind taken note that that is exactly what we did NOT get? I can’t help but notice that the events which unfolded, involving an incredibly small number of people, play suspiciously into the hands of the left. The concocted narrative that has taken hold—about what we all were like, what we heard, and what we wanted to do—could never hold water without an Orwellian effort to erase the true narrative from history. Please help me believe that Americans are not so credulous.

If we can’t find it in ourselves to creatively and courageously combat intimidation and suppression now, it will NOT be only the speeches, testimony, or opinions of a select, objectionable few that disappear. We hold our rights in common, or we hold them not at all.

Let’s make this good viral, please share.

I'm trying to comment on a front page article, 2/29/2020 A divided nation: What is holding us together? from AP that begins with a false premise - that election fraud is a baseless claim. There are videos of fraud and affidavits of fraud in several states that account for the entirety of Biden's "win" That the United States courts and even Republican politicians have turned them back only proves the depth of the fraud. Examples - thousands of dead people voting, counters told to add missing information to ballots, videos of fencing off poll watchers, bags of ballots from people born on 1/1/1920, suitcases of ballots rolled out from under a table after watchers sent away. (AND MORE.)
