Not deffending him, but by GOP standards he really is (low bar, I know). He supported the PRO Act, the Infrastructure Act, voted to codify Roe V Wade, codify legal birth control, codify gay marriage, voted to ban assault weapons, I could go on. He is my Representitive and I will be voting for Ashley Eshaz in November, but the man is far from radical. Our criticisms of him and the GOP need to be based in fact if we want to oust them.

He also never voted to impeach Trump and did not vote in favor of establishing a committee to investigate 1/6. He may not be extremist with kitchen table issues, but he certainly doesn't have the guts to stand up to the fascists in his party.

He did vote in favor of establishing the Jan 6 committee. One of 35 Republicans to do so.


James19991 t1_iskfj1e wrote

Oh I was only thinking of the second vote with that.

On June 30, 2021, the resolution, H.Res. 503 Establishing the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, passed on the House floor by a vote of 222 to 190, with all Democratic members and two Republican members, Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, voting in favor.18l sixteen Republican members did not vote. The resolution empowered Pelosi to appoint eight members to the committee, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy could appoint five members "in consultation' with the Speaker.

The article points out his bad votes on LGBTQ issues. Yes, the average score from the rest of the Republicans in PA was like 1, lol. He didn't vote to codify Roe. But isn't it insane that we live in a country where birth control is now under attack. lol

The problem with Fitzpatrick is that he’s a vote for Republican control of the house and Kevin McCarthy as house speaker.

All these moderate votes mentioned on this post only came up for a vote because Democrats controlled the house. They will not be brought up for votes with McCarthy as speaker who will struggle to manage the Marjorie Taylor Green & Lauren Boebert extremists (and there will be more extremists republicans added to the ranks in solid red districts).

Republicans are likely to win the house and Fitzpatrick being re-elected will be a big reason why. They will shut down the government by refusing to raise the debt ceiling to pay for America’s bills for money that’s already been spent (like the Trump tax cuts for the rich that were not revenue neutral and added $1.9 trillion to the deficit over 11 years which Fitzpatrick voted for). The resulting federal government default on payments will be catastrophic for the economy and especially tough on the working middle class (the very people that Fitzpatrick represents in Bucks County). You can bet that corporations will then have their hands out for a bail out when it happens because they love to privatize profits but socialize losses. Taxpayers will once again be footing the bill.

Pelosi has her faults but she controls her caucus (even the squad) when votes comes up. She puts basic governing above partisan squabbles, and will put country over party when needed. I would prefer she step down and teach a new generation of young leaders in the Democratic Party, but I will still take her as speaker over Kevin McCarthy who has shown no spine or management skills while he has been minority leader.

And no, this site is absolute trash in a lot more ways than one.

Three pages back is deep, and it's probably more than that, I just only bothered to check back three pages.

But the joke that it is on a technical competence level isn't the point. The point is that it's a malicious propaganda site aimed at deceiving viewers into thinking it's an established local news source for Bucks county.

Not only is OP's scam site not professionally built, suggesting this isn't a legitimate organization, much less an established local news journal (which it's not, this is a scam site made to look like local news), this isn't even built by a competent hobbyist or a tech-savvy person who isn't a developer.

At least try to argue over the line of where something becomes deceptive. The structure of this website is objectively bad. There's not even an argument to be made against that.

What are you talking about? It is uncommon for legitimate businesses centered around a website to be incapable of building and maintaining a functional website.

Professional journalists aren't using WYSIWYG editors to fake a local newspaper for their articles. If they don't have the resources to form a proper journal, they write articles on medium or substack.

This is not a legitimate news source. This is a scam website posing as a local newspaper. It's a con, and not a competent one.

Who cares if they're using a WYSIWYG editor? Most journalists aren't web developers... most of the internet is Wordpress, so I don't understand why you're bent out of shape about that.

Having a regular website which any competent adult could build demonstrates professionalism that might suggest it's a legitimate organization.

No, but most competent adults, let alone professionals in any field that involves using the internet, can put together a marginally competent website.

Most journalists are capable of running their own wordpress site. In fact, if they don't use substack, they typically do have their own wordpress sites. But not a single person involved your scam was able to put one together competently.

The gross incompetence with a basic professional skillset signals it's not a legitimate organization. Which is what this discussion is: Pointing out that is a propaganda site imitating an established local newspaper.

This is a malicious propaganda spam site, posing as a local newspaper.

It's a small, progressive local news organization. Your characterization as a scam or malicious propaganda has everything to do with your unwillingness to accept someone else's point of view. You STILL haven't addressed any of the substance of what they're saying, and you're fixated on the quality of their website, a website which is just fine, by the way.

>No, but most competent adults, let alone professionals in any field that involves using the internet, can put together a marginally competent website.

...and they have a marginally competent website. It's no better or worse than most other small Bucks County businesses. Jesus. It's not the New York Times or Mother Jones caliber because they don't have that much money and their beat is a semi-rural county.

No, this is a scam website. is a propaganda spam site disguised as an established local newspaper.

There's essentially no local news on the site, it's 95% leftist propaganda, much of it not even specific to PA, and of the little content I clicked on, it turned out to be republished content from elsewhere.

It's not a marginally competent website. The average person off the street could build something more competent than this. Images don't load consistently, load time is terrible, layouts are broken, scroll jacking is broken, text is vibrating. This is not competent.

Any actual journalist is capable of building a proper wordpress site, given that they tend to have their own wordpress sites. Which are used for and presented as what they are, their blogs. They don't fake being the local paper.

It's beyond a budget issue, it's a basic competence issue, and indicates these are not professionals in any capacity. Like I said, it's a scam website. A bunch of political propaganda dressed up as if it's a local newspaper, and now the people behind this scam are in this thread lying about it and their intentions.

As far as me focusing on Bucks County Beacon being a fake newspaper, that's just what the discussion is. It's telling that you're jumping into this thread 60 replies deep demanding I change the subject. Bucks County Becon's a political spam site disguised as an local newspaper. It deliberately uses a dated logo and everything, despite not existing prior to late 2021.

Why would it be from the 1950's? It could be from the 90's, or the 2010's, or the 2000's.

Nope. It's from this election cycle, and only features political propaganda, despite being dressed up and named as if it's a local news source.

It barely even has a functional homepage. Doesn't even make it into the top three pages of google for "local news bucks county pa". Probably for specific reasons I don't even want to state because it would help them fix it.

This is to local news what homepathic products are to medicine. It's deceptively packaged and delivered in the same way.
