In addition to Senator Cruz, invitations to speak to the 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conferencehave been extended to the remaining candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination: Mr. Donald Trump, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich.

In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected as the 34th U.S. Senator from Texas. A passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution, Ted won a decisive victory in both the Republican primary and the general election, despite having never before been elected to office.

Before being elected to the U.S. Senate, Ted Cruz received national acclaim as the Solicitor General of Texas, the State’s chief lawyer before the U.S. Supreme Court. Serving under Attorney General Greg Abbott, Ted was the nation’s youngest Solicitor General, the longest serving Solicitor General in Texas, and the first Hispanic Solicitor General of Texas.

In private practice in Houston, Ted spent five years as a partner at one of the nation’s largest law firms, where he led the firm’s U.S. Supreme Court and national Appellate Litigation practice.

Ted has authored more than 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and argued 43 oral arguments, including nine before the U.S. Supreme Court. During Ted’s service as Solicitor General, Texas achieved an unprecedented series of landmark national victories.

Prior to becoming Solicitor General, he served as the Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, as Associate Deputy Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice, and as Domestic Policy Advisor on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign.

Ted graduated with honors from Princeton University and with high honors from Harvard Law School. He served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist on the U.S. Supreme Court. He was the first Hispanic ever to clerk for the Chief Justice of the United States.

Ted and his wife Heidi live in his hometown of Houston, Texas, with their two young daughters Caroline and Catherine.

The 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference will feature four interactive panel presentations including Tax, Borrow & Spend: How Wolf’s Agenda Harms Pennsylvanians and Enriches Unions; Restoring the American Dream; All Politics Are Local and Litigating for Liberty.  There will be three workshop sessions including: Going Viral: Make Social Media Work for You; Faith of Our Founding Fathers; and, Campaigning Like It’s 2015, Not 1999.

Phelim McAleer Producer of Gosnell

to Speak at 2015 PA Leadership Conference

 

(Harrisburg, PA) – Phelim McAleer, producer of the film Gosnell about the horrific abortion clinic run by Philadelphia Dr. Kermit Gosnell, will talk about the movie during the annual Pennsylvania Leadership Conference to be held April 17-18 at the Radisson Penn Harris Convention Center in Camp Hill (Harrisburg), PA.  He joins Sharyl Attkisson, author of the best-seller Stonewalled, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, and Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai as announced speakers.

 

Production of the Gosnell film was funded by one of the most successful crowd funding campaigns in history.  Over 26,500 people funded the film by contributing $2.25 million in a 45 day campaign on Indiegogo.  The story is ripped from the headlines about a formerly respected doctor who ran a medical clinic in an impoverished Philadelphia neighborhood.  But behind the doors of his clinic Kermit Gosnell was also America’s most prolific serial killer.

 

McAleer and his wife, Ann McIlhinney, who spoke at the 2013 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference, also produced and directed FrackNation, a documentary on hydraulic fracturing and the natural gas boom in the U.S. and abroad.  He is also director and producer of Not Evil Just Wrong (2009) a feature documentary examining the consequences of global warming hysteria.

2015 PLC featured Speaker, Sharyl Attkisson

Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has sued the Justice Department over the hacking of her computers, officially accusing the Obama administration of illegal surveillance while she was reporting on administration scandals.

In a series of legal filings that seek $35 million in damages, Attkisson alleges that three separate computer forensic exams showed that hackers used sophisticated methods to surreptitiously monitor her work between 2011 and 2013.

“I just think it’s important to send a message that people shouldn’t be victimized and throw up their hands and think there’s nothing they can do and they’re powerless,” Attkisson said (continue reading)

2014 PLC Leadership Luncheon with Michael Reagan

Stop looking for Ronald Reagan, not going to find one. Ronald Reagan was not looking for an Abraham Lincoln when he ran. Be thankful we had a Ronald Reagan in our lives. Go out and be a cheerleader for the greatest country the United States.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Advice from Michael Reagan: If you ever have a candidate, ask them why they are running. If they cannot answer why, don’t support them.

 

2014 PLC – Ken Backwell Family Reserach Council

Brief Notes from PLC –

Ken Blackwell, Family Research Council.  He wrote the book  RESURGENT: How Constitutional Conservatism Can Save American. “Ronald Reagan is back and this time he is black.”

Mother said there are three important books (not in order)

  1. Date book – how spend time and who with
  2. Checkbook – tells how you spend you money not matter how much or meager
  3. Good book keeps on path of conviction than than path of convenience

Dad added fourth book; although mother argued not a book – the constitution (We are all equal to the image God created us; your human rights are not a gift from government, but a gift from God.)

2014 PLC - Ken Blackwell

  1. Hebrew 12 verse 1 – cloud of witnesses watching how we run the race
  2. Psalms 11 verse 3 if the foundations are being destroyed
  3. John 3, those who would like to do evil love the darkness

Our country has come through great challenges before, the question is will we rise up now when once again American is being challenged. Do we have the will. In this democracy it means willing elections.
