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? Do something about it!”
The following is a guest blog by a Teacher in a New Jersey school district. We are keeping the writer’s identity confidential.
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).
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.

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.
