Brightview Senior Living approved without township notification to Homestead Road neighbors of the project!

Just as land development projects are not created equal, neither are neighbors oppositions to these projects. You may recall the abandoned Duffy property on Lancaster Avenue in Berwyn and the subsequent construction of Daylesford Crossing, an assisted living facility on the site.  Daylesford Crossing was a long, drawn out redevelopment process that required approving a […]

Why Republicans Lose In Pennsylvania- a house divided by two-faced, double-talking Political Profiteering self-serving lobbyists

The Liberty Blog - Mon, 2016-05-02 19:46

Political Profiteers Long & Nyquist; Cancer on the Commonwealth; Why Republicans lose in Pennsylvania, a House divided against itself…self-serving crony consultants and lobbyists callously misdirect with half-truths. Two-Faced, Double-Talking lobbyists playing on both sides of the fence.

      Long & Nyquist are undercutting the party by their disingenuousness.

The smearing of Joe Peters and the defeat of the Outsiders in Pennsylvania.


Republican Brian Fitzpatrick has won the Republican primary in Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional district with his claims to be a “corruption fighter” yet he hired two-faced, double-talking union lobbyists Long and Nyquist to run his campaign. 


​    Two-faced, double talking Long & Nyquist pretend to be Republicans advancing goals of limited government, less regulation and lower taxes while representing unions including the very, very powerful Big Government, Big Spending Pennsylvania Teachers’ Union, the PSEA and the anti-free market Wendell Young’s United Food & Commercial Workers Union which opposed sale of liquor stores and defeated efforts to dismantle the liquor monopoly and beer cartel in Pennsylvania.


  ​ Brian Fitzpatrick endorsed by the Deon Poprick Crony Establishment was flown into the district by his brother, the incumbent Mike Fitzpatrick, a Boehner/Ryan Big Government Pro Union loyalist.

Long & Nyquist clients include Pennsylvania State Education Association and and United Food and Commercial Workers   Commonwealth License Beverage Association  Malt Beverage Distributors Association Comcast


In addition he is being investigated for violating the Hatch Act and running for office while still on the FBI payroll, a clear violation of the law

But most troubling is the fact that Brian Fitzpatrick claims to fight unions and corruption but hired Long & Nyquist, the biggest corrupt factors of Harrisburg, to run campaign.


Brad Bumsted wrote an excellent piece but failed to mention that the smear of Joe Peters was engineered by two faced, double talking, deceiving lobbyists/consultants Long & Nyquist who get rich protecting the power their patrons; good for them, not so good for us.Brad Bumsted Tribune Review To what end? The smearing of good guy  Joe Peters.

​  Long and Nyquist unsuccessfully failed to defeat 30 year Marine Corp  vet and good guy  Frank Ryan in the House district 101


Long & Nyquist failed in the 31st Senate district where real deal good guy  Mike Regan will be replacing crony Pat Vance.

Let us see if journalists Dennis Owens and Jon Delano pick up this story.

The liberal, snarky and supercilious John Micek will not offer us any useful information. It is unlikely that  the Philadelphia Inquirer and the southeastern media which are not only shallow, superficial and supercilious but seem to live in a clueless cave can or will report any of this. The Inquirer quoted Charlie Gerow in a recent news/analysis article; any reporter who cites Charlie GID Gerow, a loser who even lost being elected delegate to the RNC convention in Cleveland, opportunistic chameleon, whose last and biggest win, was for Harrisburg Democrat Linda Thompson demonstrates his or her cluelessness as anyone with any familiarity with Pennsylvania politics would know.


​   Long and Nyquist are pretend Republicans who play both sides of the lobbyist fence  as journalist Dennis Owens has reported, lobbying for unions while pretending to advocate for what are presented as Republican Party values. Phonies, double talking, deceiving two faced frauds who smear good Republicans Long & Nyquist engineered this smear of a good man. Long and Nyquist are, also, consulting for Brian Fitzpatrick in Pa 8. Long and Nyquist are Political Profiteers who will make a lot of money losing the Attorney General election yet again. And, of course, Brian Fitzpatrick is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law of violating the Hatch Act.


With the exception of a State Supreme court candidate, nominally a Republican, but with bipartisan support, the Republicans have not won a statewide election since 2009 when Tom Corbett won by big margins before betraying those who voted for him with two tax increases and Pat Toomey walked away from those who supported him from 2004 through his squeaker election in 20009.


There is a reason why Republicans lose statewide;not a single Republican congressman, no matter how liberal or corrupt, has gone down in the April 26 2016   primary.  Trump voters did not vote for the Outsider down ticket. In Pa-16 primary just past, the liberal, party loyalist Lloyd Smucker defeated real deal conservative Chet Beiler. The severely under-financed Art Halvorson came within 1 point of defeating crony insider Bill Shuster. Oddly, with stunning turnout driven by Donald Trump’s dramatic campaign, voters voting for outsider Donald Trump, nevertheless, voted for insiders down ticket!!!!

Do we really want Cronyism in the Attorney General’s Office?  ​

 John Rafferty entwined with Long & Nyquist

It is highly unlikely that bringing Long & Nyquist into the Attorney General’s office will restore integrity to the office.
