New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy took to social media on Saturday to announce that he has a tumor on his kidney saying “Over 50,000 New Jerseyans will hear the worlds “You have cancer”. Having been diagnosed with bladder cancer in December I was able to put political differences aside and sympathize with Murphy – until I realized he was politicizing his cancer diagnosis and making his announcement a commercial for the Affordable Healthcare Act.

It’s time to give the people a voice in the Republican primaries.
In my previous article, you have seen my disgust with the nominating system used by some the Republican party’s county commissions. A system built by insiders, for insiders. Anyone can complain, but it’s incumbent upon those who do, to also offer solutions. So I’ve stated the problem, now let’s discuss the actions that should be taken, and the resulting resolutions.

I don’t know if the average NJ Republican understands how the Republican primary system works inside the County Committee System. I didn’t, until having witnessed it firsthand. I always wondered how we, Republicans, keep getting left leaning liberal RINO Republicans like Hugin to run, and kept losing. Now I understand. The County Committees of NJ have the ability to impose their will on the public. From what I have seen so far, the system is designed that about 100 people greatly influence who wins the state primary, and their considerations have little to do with the desires of the voting public.
I’d like to make a statement in reference to Saturday’s blog post. Camden County GOP Executive Director Tom Crone is apparently disturbed by my criticizing the Camden County GOP giving the line to Rik Mehta in the 2020 U.S. Senate race. Rather than defend “his candidate” (his words) he has resorted to personal attacks as Tom does. Rather than tell voters why we should join the Camden County GOP in supporting Mehta he has resorted to questioning my motivation and credibility. Tom got on the radio yesterday and bashed the Informed Conservative Blog – an endeavor that months ago he asked me to let him be a part of.
The Camden County Republican Committee announced this week that it had given the line to U.S. Senate candidate Rik Mehta. Camden County joined 3 of New Jersey’s 21 counties in giving Mehta the line. In its press release the Camden County GOP called Mehta an “excellent U.S. Senate candidate ” and said he “has a keen grasp of the issues voters care about”. Let’s not forget the Camden County GOP also endorsed Vincent Squire for Camden County Freeholder in 2018 before later disavowing him.
To say that our nation is in a Democrat induced crisis is an understatement. The House is focused on impeaching President Trump because they know they cannot beat him at the polls in 2020. Healthcare costs continue to skyrocket thanks to the Affordable Care Act. We continue to have an emergency at our southern border. America is in an opioid crisis. Our nation is in a moral decline. Americans are divided more than ever before thanks to radical Liberalism. President Trump is working hard for America despite having to fight for the future of our nation as Democrats hold impeachment hearings. Our economy and job market are breaking records. America has it’s testicular fortitude back on the world stage. But what is U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D, NJ) focused on?
