This Memorial Day, Remember American Military Killed at the Urging of the Asbury Park Connected Sheikh, Taqi Usmani

By Tommy DeSeno

Sheikh Usmani

Sheikh Usmani

In Asbury Park, all the boardwalk buildings including Convention Hall, The Stone Pony and the Wonder Bar are owned by a Middle Eastern company named Capital Guidance, by way of a holding company they formed called Madison Marquette.  Capital Guidance operates Madison Marquette from their offices in Reston Virginia, amid the fastest growing Islamic concentration in the country.

Capital Guidance employs a Sharia Advisory Board chaired by a Pakistani Mufti, Muhammad Taqi Usmani.  When it comes to human rights, this scrivener of that area’s Sharia laws is a monster. He has a 30 year career of jailing gays, beating women for being raped and like atrocities, such as supporting modern slavery.

Memorial Day Reflections

By Steve McEnery

Steve McEneryMemorial Day has become the traditional beginning of summer. Originally,
and more importantly (Decoration Day) was established to commemorate the
Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th
century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who died
while in military service. Unfortunately, it’s not taught in school the
way it once was.

Today, the flag is burned, stepped and danced on and spit upon, totally
disrespecting it; and the men and  woman who have died defending this
Country, our Flag and the rights of those that defile and disrespect
this great symbol of freedom.

Vin Gopal and the Democrats’ plan for taking over Monmouth County

We’ve been reporting for years on how Monmouth County Democrat Chairman Vin Gopal has been raising special interest money in Trenton as well as from Hudson and Essex Counties so that he can take over our beautiful county, pave it over and award contracts and patronage jobs to his benefactors.  Fortunately, he’s had limited success.

Now, thanks to Hudson County View, we have the chairman on tape sharing the next step of his plan.  The money is not enough, he needs to bring voters into the county courtesy of the Hudson County boss, Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto.

A joke! Vin will likely protest. But is it?

Judge: Doherty violated Belmar voters’ civil rights

Belmar Main Street Walk

Lawless Matt Doherty addressed Belmar residents while Governor Chris Christie practiced his Trump sidekick routine

Lawless Matt Doherty, the mayor of Belmar, violated the civil rights of his borough’s voters last year with a “invalid and misleading” ballot explanatory statement regarding the $4.1 million bonding referendum for a beach pavilion, according to a ruling by Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Katie Gummer last week.

The ballot statement was not discussed and approved in public at a Council meeting, as is required. Rather, Belmar submitted the ballot question and statement to Monmouth County Clerk Christine Hanlon without any input from the public or from the citizens who challenged the bonding ordinance.
