Are you mad yet New Jersey Republicans? Do something about it!

On February 2, 2019 i wrote a blog post entitled “New Jersey Democrats want to give Cory Booker’s Presidential campaign an advantage” about a bill before the New Jersey Legislature that “Requires candidates for President and Vice-President of United States to disclose federal income tax returns to appear on ballot” and “prohibits Electoral College electors from voting for candidates who fail to file income tax returns”.  Yesterday the bill passed the New Jersey Senate by a 23 to 11 vote.  The bill states that candidates for President and Vice President must now disclose 5 years of federal tax returns to appear on the ballot in New Jersey.  Candidates would be required to submit their federal tax returns to the NJ State Division of Elections which would post them online.  Electoral College Electors would be prohibited from voting for candidates who don’t comply.  This is clearly an attempt to keep the incumbent President off the ballot and give Cory Booker a clear path to the White House.  Continue reading “Are you mad yet New Jersey Republicans?

In case you didn’t already know New Jersey’s Democratic leadership is hypocritical.

I have found myself angry many times over the past 13-months since since Governor Murphy took office.  There may not have been a time when I was more angry then this morning when I learned that New Jersey is 1 of 16 states that joined a lawsuit filed Monday against President Trump to block his emergency declaration to build the wall.  New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal who was appointed by Murphy said in a Tweet “The only emergency today is a President who refuses to adhere to the rule of law”.  This of course coming from the AG who released his Immigrant Trust Directive last year making New Jersey a sanctuary state, refusing to cooperate with ICE and defying federal immigration law.  Murphy even budged $2.1 million for the legal defense of illegal immigrants facing detention or deportation (monies to fight the federal government in its efforts to enforce federal law).

New Jersey Democrats think their authority trumps (pun intended) federal law again.

We knew for over a year it was coming.  As if Governor Murphy thumbing his nose at federal law by making New Jersey a sanctuary state was not enough “legalized” marijuana is becoming closer to a reality in the state.  According to Politico Governor Murphy, State Senate President Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Coughlin have reached a deal on marijuana “legalization”.  It gets worse.  NJ.com reported that the marijuana bill would include a provision to expunge the criminal records of people who have been convicted of marijuana offenses in New Jersey.

Informed Conservative week in review 2/4/19 through 2/10/19.

Last week on the Informed Conservative Blog we asked why Governor Murphy hates the Jersey Shore, talked about another law enforcement agency limiting its cooperation with ICE and suggested if you want to see the future of New Jersey take a look at New York.  On the Informed Conservative Podcast we announced the New Jersey Republican Party Statewide Leadership Summit on March 1st and the March on Trenton on March 26th.  We again asked the question why does Murphy hate the Jersey Shore, how the $15 minimum wage will force small businesses to close, force layoffs and force job and businesses to leave the state and asked the question how long will it be before the exodus of families, businesses and jobs from New Jersey cause the same significant drop in tax revenue causing budget deficits in our state?  We continued to talk about Murphy’s agenda that is wrong for New Jersey, Democrats in New Jersey giving Spartacus Booker an unobstructed path to the White House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and wished the best to Jersey Guy Artie Lange who continues to fight his demons.

If you want to see the future of New Jersey take a look at New York.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Monday that New York is facing a $2.3 billion budget deficit after just last week he released his $175 billion budget proposal.  “The budget we put forward is not supported by the revenues” Cuomo said. Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli referred to the unprecedented deficit as “the most serious revenue shock that the state has faced in many years,” adding that he believes it will “get worse before it gets better”.  If you want a crystal ball to see what the future holds for New Jersey under Governor Murphy all you have to do is look at New York.

Why does Governor Murphy hate the Jersey Shore?

We’ve talked several times about the potential negative impact of a $15 minimum wage in New Jersey.  Ignoring all of the research on the negative economic effects in the states that have dramatically increased the minimum wage Murphy signed the $15 minimum wage bill today proclaiming “It is a great day to make some history for New Jersey’s working families.  And that’s just what we’re going to do. We’ve talked long enough about putting New Jersey on a responsible path to $15 an hour minimum wage. Today we start our way on this path”.   Murphy signed the bill at the Elizabeth headquarters of immigrant advocacy group Make The Road New Jersey.  Murphy has made it clear that he is more interested in gaining votes for Democrats than he is New Jersey’s economy, jobs or the law abiding hard working residents of the state.  Additionally Murphy seems to be doing everything he can to kill tourism at the Jersey shore.
