Last week on the Informed Conservative Blog we discussed a Monmouth University poll showing New Jerseyans rate their quality of life in the state at an all time low, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats putting their opposition to President Trump before the American people again, racial bias in teacher hiring in New Jersey and New Jersey tax revenues being lower than expected. On the Informed Conservative Podcast our guest was RJ Bermudez talking about the March 26, 2019 March on Trenton to protest Governor Murphy and his destructive agenda.
On Tuesday House Democrats passed legislation to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration to divert funds to build the wall at our southern border. The House vote marks the first time the House or Senate has tried to terminate a Presidential declaration of national emergency using the National Emergencies Act of 1976. The vote was 245 to 182 with all Democrats voting to support the resolution and 13 Republicans joining them. The measure should reach the Senate for a vote by mid-March. The President has promised a veto. Continue reading “Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats put their opposition to our President before the safety and security of Americans again.”
Last week on the Informed Conservative Blog we talked about New Jersey’s efforts to “legalize” marijuana, New Jersey’s hypocritical Democratic leadership, illegal immigrant students in New Jersey’s public schools, failed Camden County Freeholder and Pennsauken Township Committee candidate Vincent Squire continuing his con job, and we asked if New Jersey Republicans are mad yet. On the Informed Conservative Podcast our guest was Terry Beck who is leading the effort to recall Governor Murphy.
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!”
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).
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.
Despite the government shutdown private sector employment increased by 213,000 jobs from December to January according to the January ADP National Employment Report. Wall Street economists had forecast an increase of 174,000. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 both reacted positively to the news. The Dow rose 1.77% while the S&P rose 1.56%.
