The town of Johnstown was devastated by floods not once, not twice, but three times in less than a century. Then came the economic wave that washed away the steel industry, and with it a way of life.
Now a backlash is building in the maple-studded hills of southwestern Pennsylvania. Captured in interviews and confirmed in statewide polls, the sentiment is propelling Donald Trump toward the Republican nomination, and possibly even the presidency of the world’s biggest economy.
It’s the feeling people get when they’re afraid of being left behind.
“This town is beyond distressed. We’ve been destroyed. It’s sad, because this was a good place to grow up. You didn’t have to lock your door,” said Robert Vargo, 63, as he talked politics with a friend in a McDonald’s. The retired Johnstown native, who worked as a security guard despite having an engineering degree, plans to vote for Trump. “People are sick of being ignored. That’s why Trump is popular. He’s actually saying the things people are afraid to express.”
Pennsylvania’s 71 delegates will be the biggest prize on April 26, when five states vote for the Republican Party’s presidential candidate. Each one could be crucial for frontrunner Trump, fresh from a landslide win in his home state of New York, as he battles to secure a majority that would deny opponents a chance to unseat him at the party convention in July.

A grand jury was convened. It is official that there wouldn’t be offers of immunity given to witnesses in association with the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton if it were otherwise. So if she, Hillary Clinton, does get tried and convicted of a felony for mishandling top secret national security-related information in which Mr. Obama doesn’t pardon? Well then. Obama might just saunter on in to rescue the Democrats with a third term run for the Presidency. I don’t think he’s tired yet of the fundraisers, the golfing, the baseball games, the selfies or the Tango.

Today, April 5th, 2016 is the Wisconsin Primary. Votes will be cast from 7AM til 8pm Central Time. Please everyone in Wisconsin, who supports Mr. Donald J. Trump for our next US President, get out and vote for The Donald! #SMARTWOMEN4TRUMP #REALMEN4DJT #TRUMPARMY #TRUMPTRAIN #ALWAYSTRUMP #ONLYTRUMP #WOMENFORTRUMP #MAKEAMERICAGREATAGAIN and all other great people who support Mr. Trump and use #TRUMP hashtags galore…
My husband, a film maker, who is also a Pastor among many other giftings, David Orts, attended US Presidential Republican candidate Donald J. Trump’s rally in Superior, WI yesterday.
David is a multi-talented man who is charismatic, jovial, rough around the edges, brutally honest, yet very generous and kind man, not unlike, The Donald. He didn’t get a chance to get a one on one interview with the very busy Republican candidate, Mr. Trump, but he did capture some amazing video of what it’s like, as a supporter, to be in the heart of a high energy Trump rally.
“Wisconsin The Hinge State” film was born. It is about 15 minutes in length.
I encourage all aboard the #TrumpTrain to watch this mini documentary film Wisconsin The Hinge State” which my husband David Orts @drdaveorts produced. Please share it broadly via Twitter/FB however you desire.
It has been our (David’s and my) observation, on social media there are many associated with #CruzCrew #NeverTrump #AlwaysCruz that seem to be extremely wounded, angry and confused right now for a variety of reasons. And there are many still undecided voters across all party lines that need to know we Trump supporters would welcome them to jump aboard with us on this journey to the White House in 2016.
Since both Republican camp’s supporters, Cruz and Trump, are mainly comprised of Conservatives and most are also Christians, we must lead the way to be uniters not dividers. Let us who support @realDonaldTrump lead by Christ-like examples as best as we can, being true to ourselves yet truer to God by the Power of Jesus Holy Spirit, for the very survival of our nation, and the future of all Americans is at stake now in this next Presidential election. We have to elect a solid, strong, takes no nonsense leader who is led of The Lord Jesus in all he says and does even if he doesn’t know it yet.
For those in the “establishment” who would say or do anything to prevent the Trump movement from proceeding, we ask you to please stop interfering with the overwhelming will of “We The People.” Please ask Ohio Governor John Kasich to step down and suspend his campaign? He is doing nothing other than interfering with what should be a two-man race between the two remaining Republican candidates who started out of seventeen initial competitors.
There are rumors swirling that Reince Priebus has been speaking with Speaker Paul Ryan and that the “establishment” will try to insert him as their choice in a contested convention. America doesn’t need such elitist hogwash shoved upon us. We The People who love God, Family, our US Military our allies such as Israel, can truly decide who we want to lead our nation. We are educated, we see clearly, we read, we write, we teach, we talk, we preach, we work, we laugh, we cry, we suffer, we fight, we pray, we perservere. We will decide and you will not steal this election away from us.
Oh and Mark Levin, you say you are a friend to Donald? Please start acting like one.
Donald J. Trump has what it takes to lead a family, multiple companies, and a nation as grand as ours. In order to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain we are certain he will depend upon the Grace, Mercy & Wisdom of God listening to wise council delegating hard tasks that need specific qualified talents. Mr. Trump has shown his learning curve is swift. He is deft at acquiring knowledge and adapting at new challenges. He is up for the job of President of the United States.
May God Bless Donald and his wife Melania, all his children, and grandchildren and all who surround him in his entire sphere of influence in Jesus Holy & Precious Name above all Names. Yeshua Ha Mashiach’s Name

Iran warned the US on Monday that any attempt to encroach on the Islamic Republic’s ballistic missile program would constitute the crossing of a “red line.”
“The US calculations about the Islamic Republic and the Iranian nation are fully incorrect,” Iranian Deputy Chief of Staff Brig-Gen Maassoud Jazzayeri was quoted by the Fars News Agency as saying. read more
President Obama has stoked controversy after he suggested to an audience of Argentinian youth that there was no great difference between communism and capitalism and that they should just “choose from what works”.
Obama responded to a question about nonprofit community organizations and the necessity of attracting funding from both the public and private sectors.
“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said.
“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works,” he added. read more
Father Tom Uzhunnalil has been missing since March 4th, 2016 The Priest from the Silesian order in of Bangalore, India was serving at Missionaries of Charity Home in Yemen when Father Tom was allegedly taken captive by ISIS
Fears are growing for a priest believed to have been kidnapped by ISIS as sickening reports suggest he may be crucified on Good Friday.
Father Tom Uzhunnalil was seized when four armed militants stormed an old people’s home in Aden in Yemen on March 4.
The gunmen killed 16 people, including four nuns, in the brutal attack on the home run by the in a brutal raid which killed 16 people including four nuns.
No group has come forward to claim responsibility for the kidnap of the priest, who was a member of the Silesian order in of Bangalore, India, but a survivor said ISIS was to blame.
Now reports shared on social media suggest the priest faces being brutally tortured this Friday as Christians mark the day Jesus died.
The Franciscan Sisters of Siessen , based in South Africa, posted on Facebook: “Was informed that the Salesian priest, Fr.Tom who was kidnapped by ISIS from the Missionaries of Charity Home in Yemen is being tortured and is going to be crucified on Good Friday.
“This calls for serious concerted prayers from all of us.”
Since the reports were posted, members of Fr Tom’s order have stepped forward to deny them.
However they are unable to say where the priest may be held or whether he is alive or dead.
Father Mathew Valarkot, spokesman for the Salesians’ Bangalore province to which the kidnapped priest belongs, said: “We have absolutely no information on Fr Tom.
“But even today we do not know who has taken him and what their motives are because no one has claimed responsibility.”
Earlier this month, the sole survivor of the brutal attack, Sister Sally, described how the militants, who she said belonged to ISIS, killed everyone else.

Our prayers are with Father Tom, and all who serve the Lord Jesus by His Holy Spirit’s Grace Mercy & Providence. We @drdaveorts@michellemeyer10 praying for a miracle for him to be released by ISIS by Divine Holy Intervention in Jesus Precious Name above ALL Names. Amen

Updated 6:30AM ET 34 Total now confirmed dead in Brussels Belgium Updated 5:49AM ET Excerpt from The New York Times
The attacks, a vivid illustration of the continued threat to Europe, occurred four days after the capture on Friday of Europe’s most wanted man, Salah Abdeslam. Mr. Abdeslam is believed to be the sole survivor of the 10 men who were directly involved in the attacks that killed 130 people in and around Paris on Nov. 13. Mr. Michel issued an extraordinary appeal to the population to “avoid all movement,” as the authorities braced for possible further attacks. The French government ordered 1,600 extra police officers to patrol the nation’s borders, including at train stations, airports and ports. Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain called an emergency meeting of ministers. The attacks put the Belgian capital in a state of virtual lockdown. All flights were canceled for the day. All subway, tram and bus travel was shut down. Eurostar canceled its trains connecting Brussels with Paris and London. Thalys, which runs high-speed trains linking dozens of cities in Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands, suspended service. Cellphone lines were jammed as panicked travelers and Belgians tried to make calls. The events on Tuesday began with a pair of explosions at a departure hall at Brussels Airport, in the town of Zaventem, about seven miles northeast of the city center, just before 8 a.m. “We were going to check in around 7:30 a.m.,” said one traveler, Ilaria Ruggiano. “There were seven of us. We were a bit late. We heard a big noise and saw a big flash. My mother went to the floor — she was hit. I just dropped my luggage and went to the floor. A kid came out, bleeding a lot. I tried to help him with a tissue, but it was not enough. There were two bombs.”
