    President Trump made a guest appearance at a wedding at his Bedminster, NJ, golf resort on Saturday that left the bride and groom chanting “USA! USA!” The president, who’s spending the weekend at the resort, walked into the wedding reception for Nicole Marie and PJ Mongelli, according to video of the event. As the crowed roared and turned their phone’s cameras on the president, he motioned for the couple to come to him. Trump, wearing a dark suit without a tie, put his arms around the two as they took part in the “USA” chants, thrusting their arms in the...
  • These Jersey Democrats helped kill move to impeach Trump

    07/18/2019 7:17:37 AM PDT · by SMGFan · 15 replies
    Rep. Tom Malinowski last month became the first federal lawmaker from New Jersey to call for beginning impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. But when an impeachment resolution reached the House floor Wednesday, Malinowski, D-7th Dist., voted to table it, effectively killing the measure. His spokeswoman Amanda Osborne did not respond to requests for comment. In fact, six of the 11 New Jersey Democrats opposed the measure, including all four who are in their first term. It followed a national trend: a majority of House Democrats voted to table the measure, as did every Republican. The resolution sponsored by Rep....
  • Judge William Walls, longstanding federal judge in N.J., dies at age 86

    U.S. District Judge William H. Walls, the first male African-American judge to sit on the federal bench in New Jersey, died last week at the age of 86. Described once in a CNN headline as a “judicial renegade,” Walls had a storied — and sometimes enigmatic — history on the bench. But it was his comments during the trial of U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, when he told the senator’s attorney to “shut up” and referenced the 1977 World War II film “A Bridge Too Far” as he cautioned the parties on their tactics, that garnered him national attention in 2017....

    Police drag Father Fidelis Moscinski, CFR away from the Garden State Gynecology abortion center on July 13 after a Red Rose Rescue.

At least one woman turned away and didn’t go through with an abortion, Red Rose Rescue spokeswoman Lisa Hart told LifeSiteNews. The woman’s mother was forcing her to have the abortion. “I was in the process of trying to get her...

    A man was savagely beaten on Martin Luther King Drive in Jersey City following a minor traffic crash on Sunday, July 14, 2019. Video of a vicious attack in Jersey City is circulating social media after a man was pulled from his vehicle Sunday morning, beaten by a group of people, and left for dead in the street. Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said authorities are working to identify at least six people involved in the gruesome altercation, which left a 42-year-old man lying bloody in the street near Martin Luther King Drive and Orient Avenue at 2:50 a.m. The...
  • Trump nominees meet fiercest opposition from Warren, Sanders, Gillibrand

    The Hill ^ | July 13, 2019 | Reid Wilson
    The senators who are most likely to reject President Trump's nominees are the very ones who want to challenge him in 2020. The Hill's review of two-and-a-half years of vote totals shows Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) voted against more Trump nominees than any other senator. At the same time, Republicans voted virtually in lock step for Trump's nominees; the average GOP senator backed 99 percent of his picks, and the one who went rogue most often -- Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) -- still voted to confirm 93 percent of his nominees. Trump's picks...

  • State AG: Police better obey my rules, or else. Cops: Time for you to resign.

    The New Jersey Attorney General is throwing a temper tantrum over local law enforcement’s involvement in upholding the laws of our country. He’s issued directives to police across the state that they better not cooperate with federal immigration officials… and if they do, he’s threatening action against their departments. But now his words have gone viral and the Blue Family won’t stand for it. Some are even calling for his resignation. Anthony Gallo is a candidate running for the elected position of sheriff in Middlesex county. He says that the AG’s stance on immigration is going directly against federal law....

They had different skill sets for practicing their profession.Some specialized in "haruspicy." That is, they examined the flight of birds. Then, based on the patterns they detected, they advised political leaders on the best public-policy course to follow.Others practiced "extispicy." That is, they poked around in the entrails of sacrificed animals to see what the future held.Then there were those professionals who practiced a branch of soothsaying called "cephalomancy."

    PJ Media ^ | 07/08/2019 | Tyler O' Neil
    In the wake of the first round of debates in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, former Vice President Joe Biden has taken a serious hit, while Sen.s Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) are on the ascendant, along with Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Ind. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the 2016 runner-up, has fallen behind. Even so, both Sanders and Biden are maintaining a strong presence in the race. The race seems to be shaping up as a battle between these five candidates.While the first votes in the Democratic primary will not come until next year, it...

    Fox News ^ | July 8, 2019 | Ronn Blitzer
    It may come as no shock that Democratic senators currently running for president have opposed nearly all of President Trump’s judicial nominees this year -- but newly reported voting data shows some of those same lawmakers backed a surprising number of the president's court picks before the election season began. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., for example, voted in favor of 46 percent of Trump’s nominees from 2017-2018, according to data compiled by Demand Justice. Yet the figures, obtained and reported by Politico, show that in 2019, that number shrank to zero. Two other 2020 candidates, Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and...

    In yet another protest of immigrant detention policy far from the Mexico border, hundreds took to the streets in Boston Tuesday in a “Jews against ICE” demonstration that saw 18 people arrested. Marchers chanted and waved signs on a route that took them from the city’s Holocaust Memorial to the South Bay ICE detention facility at the Suffolk County House of Correction. The rush hour protest disrupted busy roadways in downtown Boston, and the Boston Globe reports that police arrested 18 who had linked arms in front of the building’s entrance. Video shows more than a dozen people dressed in...

    A state appellate court on Wednesday vacated a plea deal for a Hudson County man in jail on a bail-jumping charge after it was found the defendant “was coerced into pleading guilty,” according to court documents. State Appellate Division Judges Carmen Alvarez and William E. Nugent found in their decision that the defendant, Manuel Lopez, was “deprived not only of his right to consult with counsel about the immigration consequences of his plea, but also of the right to counsel of his choice.” “For these reasons, we vacate the plea to the bail-jumping offense and remand the matter for further...

    Jersey Journal ^ | July 4, 2019
    Whenever a member of law enforcement shoots his or her gun, the public needs to be kept informed. When three officers open fire on a city street outside a public housing complex, striking two men, cars and an occupied home, that need to be informed multiplies exponentially. And beyond that, the public also needs to be assured by city leaders that their safety and concerns matter. Despite calls from members of the community for him to address what happened, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop has been silent on the police shooting Monday night that left a 19-year-old and a 21-year-old...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker returned a donation from an executive at a pharmaceutical company after ABC News reported on it, according to a campaign aide. During last week's presidential debate, the former Newark mayor took a strong stance against the pharmaceutical industry, saying that pharmaceutical companies should be "held criminally liable" for the health and opioid crisis across the country and further stated that his campaign doesn't take contributions from the industry's corporate PACs and executives.

    There are few remaining survivors of concentration camps. Ed Mosberg is one of them. And the 93-year-old from Morris Plains, NJ, has no time for Rep. ­Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s statements last week, when she called the southern border’s migrant detention centers “concentration camps.” “She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” Mosberg told The Post. “The people on the border aren’t forced to be there — they go there on their own will. If someone doesn’t know the difference, either they’re playing stupid or they just don’t care.” On June 18, the Bronx/Queens politician posted a video...
  • Bill Introduced to Ban Gun Kits; Gun Industry Pushes Back on Proposed Suppressor Ban

    The gun industry is pushing back against a proposed suppressor ban introduced recently by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ). The bill, if passed, would ban the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer or possession of suppressors. Many Republicans and the NRA are saying the benefits of suppressors include hearing protection for the gun user and less noise pollution for those within earshot of a discharge. President and Executive Director the Amerian Suppressor Assocation Knox Williams said, "Suppressors are essentially mufflers for a gun." Williams explained that suppressors don't come close to "silencing" a gun (many uninformed journalists and anti-gun advocates call suppressors "silencers")....

    Cory Booker released a new immigration plan Tuesday that would 'virtually eliminate immigration detention.' If the New Jersey senator were elected, he vowed to severely limit the time unaccompanied children are able to be held in custody. It would also put an end to for-profit detention facilities. The 2020 Democrat contender's campaign said the plan would phase out government contracts with private prison operators over the course of three years, shut down facilities that do not meet high standards of care and reform the bond system in immigration court by prioritizing liberty over detention for immigrants. Instead of detaining the...
  • Donald Trump takes a shot at Gov. Murphy, praises N.J. lawmakers for rejecting millionaires tax

    President Donald Trump, believe or not, has just weighed in on New Jersey’s state budget. The Republican president on Monday praised the Garden State’s Democratic-controlled Legislature, which refused to pass Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy’s proposal for a millionaires tax. “Congratulations to legislators in New Jersey for not passing taxes that would have driven large numbers of high end taxpayers out of the state. Many were planning to leave, & will now be staying. New York & others should start changing their thought process on taxes, fast!” Trump tweeted. The message is music to the ears for Murphy, who criticizes Trump...

    This CNN survey, conducted in the immediate aftermath of last Wednesday and Thursday’s debates from June 28 to June 30, found Biden still in first place, but at just 22 percent–a slide of ten points from the last time CNN polled a national Democrat primary electorate. Harris, meanwhile, is now firmly in second place at 17 percent. Warren, at 15 percent, is in third place, while Sanders has dropped to 14 percent in fourth place. Buttigieg, at four percent, is in fifth place, while Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) are tied for sixth...
