The following is a guest blog by a Teacher in a New Jersey school district. We are keeping the writer’s identity confidential.
On this week’s Informed Conservative Podcast we talked about the NJGOP Statewide Leadership Summit in Atlantic City on March 1st and 2nd 2019, the March on Trenton on March 26, 2019, Amazon pulling out of its plan to move HQ2 to New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez taking credit, Ocasio-Cortez facing ethics questions after giving her boyfriend a Congressional email address, two men arrested in California for being part of a drug smuggling ring that smuggled drugs into the U.S. and to New Jersey, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatening a future Democratic President could declare a state of emergency on guns, the financial burden of illegal immigration on our school districts, the assisted suicide bill working its way through the New Jersey legislature and more.
Bowing down to pressure from advocacy groups such as the Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition and the Pennsylvania ACLU new rules went into effect last week limiting how the Pennsylvania State Police interact with those suspected of being in the U.S. illegally and its cooperation with ICE. Some states have partnership agreements with ICE. Pennsylvania does not.
Radical Left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio appeared on The View Wednesday to tout his socialist agenda including free government run healthcare and a more fair New York (he must be reading from the same script as New Jersey Governor Murphy). It seemed not to go as he had planned.
I have never met Investigative journalist Laura Loomer but she is my hero. Loomer brought three illegal immigrants – 2 from Mexico and 1 from Guatemala – who she met at the Mexican border to Pelosi’s multi-million dollar estate, climbed the wall, set up a tent on her lawn , painted the word “Immorality” in large red letters, hung pictures of people murdered by illegal immigrants then read off each of their names while live streaming the entire thing. Loomer even approached Pelosi’s front door so see if it was locked saying “only bigots lock their doors” and “come on you can’t say everyone is welcome here then lock your door”. Pelosi who is part of the Democratic Congressional leadership causing the government shutdown by fighting President Trump on border security had the police remove Loomer and her illegal immigrant friends. When the police asked them for ID Loomer told the officers “I thought IDs were racist. I’m so confused”.
You have to hand it to Governor Murphy. He’s doing exactly what he told us he’d do. He told us he’d make New Jersey a sanctuary state. He told us he’d push for a $15 minimum wage and legalized recreational marijuana. He even told us he’d raise taxes! He also said he’d push for driver licenses for illegal undocumented immigrants. In a record low turn out at the polls New Jersey elected him anyway. Some may say that New Jerseyans now have to take their medicine. That we got what we deserved for not showing up to vote. Others are willing to fight back against Murphy’s agenda they feel is wrong for New Jersey.
President Trump addressed the nation last night on border security and the government shutdown. The President called the situation at our southern border a “growing humanitarian and security crisis”, a “A crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul” and said it was a “cycle of human suffering” that he is determined to end. Trump’s message was on point and consistent with what he’s been telling the American people since he began his campaign to become President. We need border security. The President has said repeatedly that he doesn’t want to ban immigration into the U.S. but wants to make sure immigrants come here legally. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer responded minutes after the President concluded his address. Their response reminded me of one of the courtroom scenes in the movie My Cousin Vinny “Everything that guy just said is bulls*it. Thank you”.
