Police Benevolent Association Endorses Congressman Chris Smith for reelection

Congressman Chris Smith has been endorsed for reelection by the 33,000 member New Jersey Police Benevolent Association.

In his letter to Smith announcing the endorsement, PBA President Patrick Colligan said:

While Washington remains bitterly divided over partisan and political matters, your service stands out in your commitment to the men and women of law enforcement in New Jersey and around the nation.  You have remained true to New Jersey’s law enforcement community during your service in Congress.  You fought for funding for officers and resources in our communities, to protect victims of crime and to ensure that the mental health and safety of our officers is a priority in this nation.  And, most importantly, you have demonstrated respect for the officers who protect us when they have come under attack.

Fact Check: Cory Booker Did Not Sing Top Gun Tune While Sexually Engaged with Drunken Teen

By Phil Stilton

 

WASHINGTON-When telling a good story, often the story is good enough.  Sometimes, the facts behind that story don’t match up to the story, but the strength of the story often overshadows the actual facts.

Such is the case in a story written in 1992 by a young Stanford University Student, Cory Booker.

Telling one’s own personal story is often the most powerful way to make a point, or, more importantly, to make people think. When grandiose statements entrenched in politically correct terminology are made, many may listen but few will hear.

As we fumbled upon the bed, I remember debating my next “move” as if it were a chess game. With the “Top Gun” slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my “mark.” Read the rest of this entry »
