I am not a fan of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and probably would not know the name Joe Giudice if it were not for his legal issues. What I do know that Guidice was set to be released from prison on March 14, 2019 but is being held on an immigration detainer as his appeal on his deportation order makes it’s way through the court system. That appeal process could take up to a year. This leaves me wondering why we have not heard from Murphy, Menendez, Booker or other New Jersey Democrats on the Joe Guidice case. Guidice has been in the U.S. for 45-years and has a wife and children in New Jersey. Murphy has allotted $2.1 million for the legal defense of illegal immigrants facing detention or deportation in New Jersey. Why are New Jersey Democrats not stepping in to help Guidice?
Today marks just over 4-months since the November 2018 election. We reported on November 2, 2018 that failed Camden County Freeholder candidate Vincent Squire had not filed his 29-day pre-election (due October 9, 2018) or his 11-day pre-election (due October 26, 2018) financial disclosures. We reported again on January 2, 2019 that Squire had not filed his 20-day post election disclosure that was due by November 26, 2018. Today is March 8, 2019 and it’s been confirmed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission that Squire has still not filed his disclosures. Given Squire is a multiple convicted Felon it surprises me that Squire does not comply with the law.
Last week on the Informed Conservative Blog we discussed a Monmouth University poll showing New Jerseyans rate their quality of life in the state at an all time low, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats putting their opposition to President Trump before the American people again, racial bias in teacher hiring in New Jersey and New Jersey tax revenues being lower than expected. On the Informed Conservative Podcast our guest was RJ Bermudez talking about the March 26, 2019 March on Trenton to protest Governor Murphy and his destructive agenda.
In a blog post a few weeks ago we said if you want to see the future of New Jersey take a look at New York not realizing that reality would come so quickly. New York Governor Cuomo acknowledged that raising taxes was not the answer to his state’s budget shortfall saying “tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich. The rich leave and now what do you do?” Will Governor Murphy acknowledge that he cannot continue to raise taxes in the state that is already among the highest taxed in the nation and the #1 state that people leave?
In the summer of 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, gave his famous, “I Have a Dream” speech. In the speech, Dr. King stated that in the future, he wants his four children, and in turn, the rest of America, “Not to be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” A very poignant and powerful moment in this great nation’s history. However, in 2019, in New Jersey, those words ring hollow.
On Tuesday House Democrats passed legislation to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration to divert funds to build the wall at our southern border. The House vote marks the first time the House or Senate has tried to terminate a Presidential declaration of national emergency using the National Emergencies Act of 1976. The vote was 245 to 182 with all Democrats voting to support the resolution and 13 Republicans joining them. The measure should reach the Senate for a vote by mid-March. The President has promised a veto. Continue reading “Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats put their opposition to our President before the safety and security of Americans again.”
New Jersey residents views of the quality of life in the state have tumbled to an all-time low. On Monday Monmouth University released a poll that shows residents rate their quality of life in New Jersey at a record low. “This is a downward trend that should be very troubling to the folks in Trenton” according to Monmouth University Polling Director Patrick Murray. “The fact that this number just goes down year after year after year to a 40-year low really tells you something” Murray said.
