This week the Informed Conservative discussed employment numbers in the U.S. remaining strong despite the government shutdown, Pennsylvania Governor Wolf pushing a $15 minimum wage in his state, we launched our first podcast and discussed Democrats in New Jersey giving Cory “Spartacus” Booker’s Presidential campaign an advantage.
Governor Murphy and Democrats in the New Jersey Legislature are working hard to ensure that Cory Booker is our next President no matter if we want him or not. Who needs elections in what has become Soviet Jersey?
There is a race to insanity in the Democratic party. Congressional Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, Robert Menendez and others show us their deep rooted insanity almost daily. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has been showing us his for the past year as he works hard to protect illegal immigrants and ignore the hard working law abiding citizens of New Jersey. Lately we’ve talked about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his Declaration of Independence from Washington and the pardons and commuted sentences he granted 29 illegal criminal immigrants facing deportation for their crimes. Not to be outdone Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took his turn.
The Informed Conservative Blog focused more on national politics this week as the federal government shutdown reaches it’s 23rd day. This week we asked what impact the federal government shutdown is having on New Jersey, if there is a mental health crisis in the Democratic party, we discussed the President’s address to the nation and the Democrats lack of credible response, asked you to take action and tell Governor Murphy that you oppose driver licenses for illegal immigrants, asked when Democrats started hating America, where Democrats are while President Trump is working to end the shutdown and reminded you of Elián González.
In discussing the possibility of running for President in 2020 U.S. Senator Cory Booker told the Philadelphia Inquirer “I’m heterosexual. Every candidate should run on their authentic self”. This is not the first time Booker has been asked. When he first ran for the U.S. Senate people were questioning his sexuality to which he answered “What does it matter?”.
This week we began the rebranding of the blog to The Informed Conservative. A new web site is being developed and our Facebook page was created. This week we discussed Cory Booker’s potential run for President in 2020, Democratic leadership in NJ rushing through a constitutional amendment that will rig the legislative redistricting process, an Asbury Park Press editorial regarding marijuana legalization, Vincent Squire’s “Season of Giving”, Murphy accomplishing his dream of making New Jersey a sanctuary state, a discussion about leaving NJ or staying and fighting Murphy’s destructive agenda, hundreds of jobs and millions in tax revenues leaving with Honeywell and Murphy focusing his time outside of New Jersey.
U.S. Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker a proponent of criminal justice reform has indicated his support of a bill introduced in the Senate on November 15, 2018. Booker has said “Having a felony on your record is a lifetime sentence. You can’t get pell grants, you can’t get food stamps, you can’t get business licenses, you can’t get jobs. You have a lifetime sentence. This system is toxic in every way”. Booker appears to support reducing sentencing guidelines and hiding criminal records from potential employers. Perhaps Mr. Spartacus should focus on preventing crime not making our workplaces and streets less safe by giving criminals a pass.
It was an interesting week in New Jersey from the $15 minimum wage moving forward to the state’s failed response to a relatively small snow event.
U.S. Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker, who I am embarrassed to say is from New Jersey, is introducing a bill to give every child born in the U.S. a government funded interest bearing savings account. Let me say that again. Just being born entitles you to an interest bearing savings account funded by the U.S. government according to Senator Spartacus. Much like the $15 minimum wage being pushed by Governor Murphy, State Senate President Sweeney and State Assembly Speaker Coughlin this is another bill that will disincentivize people. Why work hard and save? Why teach your children to be financially responsible and save? Uncle Spartacus has your back!
Remember the job market that was booming? The job market that has reflected more available jobs then available talent for the first time in recorded U.S. history? The 3.7% unemployment rate? The U.S. economy that’s about to set a record for the longest expansion? The record breaking stock market? The U.S. once again becoming a leader on the world stage? The safety and security of our nation being a priority? President’s Trump’s America first strategy? Remember when our President was working with Congress to make the lives of the American people better? #MeToo. Like it was yesterday.
