OpEd: Jews who Demonize Bannon and Legitimize Iran

By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

There are few Jewish journalists I like and respect as much as Samuel Freedman, a distinguished professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and Pulitzer-prize nominee, which is why if he criticizes me I take it seriously.

Sam wrote a lengthy feature on me and my friend Peter Noel when we co-hosted WWRL 1600 AM’s morning show in 2002-2003. It was a ground-breaking radio program on America’s legacy black radio station that featured a renowned African-American journalist and a Rabbi dueling it out for four hours every morning. Peter became a brother to me and remains so till today, veritably one of the truly fine people I know amid our myriad political disagreements. Sam’s lengthy feature in The New York Times captured the vibrancy of our morning program and the capacity of people from different backgrounds to find common ground and love each other.

Golden Days: Monmouth GOP dominated county races

victory

Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, Sheriff Shaun Golden, Congressman Chris Smith, Freeholder Serena DiMaso and Freeholder Tom Arnone celebrate their victories on Election Night

By Art Gallagher

Monmouth County’s Democrat leadership is spinning the shellacking they took last week from Sheriff Shaun Golden, Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso as a function of President-elect Donald Trump’s performance in the county.

Vin’s spin is laughable on many levels.  Let’s hope he believes it.

The Monmouth GOP swept the county races because, under Golden’s leadership, they campaign the same way the govern.  They work smarter and harder with less money.

Booker: ‘I have deep concern about the future of our country’

assetcontent-60

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Cory Booker said Sunday that “people are so fearful” in the wake of Tuesday’s election and expressed “deep concern” about America’s future. Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Booker (D-N.J.) decried the tone of the just-concluded campaign run by President-elect Donald Trump, who received enough electoral votes to become U.S. chief executive… Read the rest of this entry »

Trump’s Internal Polls Were Spot On

By Adam Geller

adam-gellerI want to give a gentle pushback against the narrative that “all the polls were wrong” on the Presidential race. Many of them were wrong. Maybe most of them were. But the internal polls for the campaign were spot on.

You may recall that the pundits laughed when Kellyanne mentioned that we spotted a fairly large hidden Trump vote, or as she called them, “undercover Trump voters.” Our polling always showed these folks in fairly large numbers. And they fell off of their chairs on their bright shiny studio sets when we started actively campaigning in states like Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania. But again, the polling provided evidence that there were cracks in that big blue wall. And we listened to the polls, and trusted them.

Law Enforcement Lines Up For Golden

img_2358-578x640Using the superlatives “ultimate”, “innovator,” “revolutionary,” and “extraordinary,” Monmouth County and State Law Enforcement associations lined up to endorse Sheriff Shaun Golden for a third full term leading the County’s law enforcement and emergency management operations.
