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.
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.
Does anyone know the Vegas odds on which Democratic Governor will bankrupt the most businesses in their state? New Jersey Governor Murphy, New York Governor Cuomo and Pennsylvania Governor Wolf seem to be competing to see how many jobs they can chase from their state. Continue reading “Not to be outdone by Murphy Pennsylvania Governor Wolf wants to ruin businesses in his state.”
We anticipated another slow week with the New Year’s holiday and Governor Murphy and his family on vacation in Tanzania until Wednesday. This week we talked about Governor Cuomo of New York granting pardons and commuting the sentences of 29 illegal immigrants facing deportation for their crimes, failed 2018 Camden County Freeholder candidate Vincent Squire failing to file his financial disclosures with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission, the job market continuing to grow despite what Democrats tell you, we proposed that New Jersey follow Pennsylvania’s lead and bar convicted felons from holding elected office and politicians in New Jersey using the legal system to silence their opposition.
In a stunning announcement New York Governor Andrew Cuomo granted pardons to 22 criminal immigrants facing deportation and commuted the sentences of 7 more currently in prison on Monday. This after Cuomo pardoned 8 criminal immigrants who faced deportation this past summer. Those who were pardoned or had their sentences commuted had been convicted of crimes ranging from murder, possession of a weapon, sale of a controlled substance, robbery, possession of stolen property, larceny, assault, arson and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
Just about every day we talk about New Jersey Governor Murphy challenging the federal government apparently thinking his power as Governor supersedes the federal government. It seems that whatever Murphy sees when he looks in the mirror New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sees also. In a December 16, 2018 speech Cuomo rolled out his “2019 Justice Agenda” for the first 100 days of 2019. In the 45-minute speech Cuomo declared New York independent from the United States of America saying “Let this agenda be New York’s Declaration of Independence. We declare independence from this federal government’s policies”.
