“Our message in New Jersey as Republicans has always been one of fiscal responsibility and civility,” said Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-21) in an interview with WNYC radio. “I want people to know that as a Republican in this state, I want to respect people and bring people together. And, if that message is not coming from Washington, it is going to come from me.”
Bramnick, like Kevin Bacon in Animal House, is preparing to take another beating and to politely ask for more.Art Gallagher | Filed under: New Jersey, NJ GOP, NJ State Legislature | Tags: 2019 elections, Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick, N J General Assembly, NJ State Assembly | 11 Comments »
The Middlesex County Department of Corrections released Luis Rodrigo Perez from custody last February, in defiance of an Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) detainer issued by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in December.
Perez, 23, shot and killed three people in Springfield, Missouri last week, according to Missouri law enforcement authorities.
“Yet again, an ICE detainer was ignored and a dangerous criminal alien was released to the streets and is now charged with killing three people,” said ICE Acting Executive Associate Director Corey Price. “Had ICE’s detainer request in December 2017 been honored by Middlesex County Jail, Luis Rodrigo Perez would have been placed in deportation proceedings and likely sent home to his country – and three innocent people might be alive today. It is past time that localities realize the perils of dangerous sanctuary policies and resume their primary goal of protecting their residents.”
Perez was being held in the Middlesex County Jain on domestic violence charges. Unnamed Middlesex County officials are quoted by NJ.com blaming ICE for Perez’s release, explaining that their policy is not to hold illegals who haven’t killed or maimed anyone yet.Art Gallagher | Filed under: New Jersey | Tags: ICE, Immigration Customs Enforecment, Luis Rodrigo Perez, Middlesex County Jail, New Jersey, Sabrina Starr, Sanctuary cities, Sanctuary State, Springfield Missouri | 14 Comments »

MMM is hearing that there is a movement within at least three county Boards of Elections to stop counting Vote-By-Mail ballots that are in house at 10 pm tonight, rather than complete the count on election day, as is required by statute.
A Court Order is required to stop the count of VBM ballots, according to Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giodano Hanlon.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, New Jersey | Tags: 2018 elections, Board of Elections, New Jersey, Vote by mail ballot counts | 3 Comments »
Ashley Evans, a 17 year old Howell resident, has been fighting back against the lies being told by Josh Welle in his ads against Congressman Chris Smith since she came across one on YouTube a few weeks ago.
Smith rescued Ashley and her sister Sophia from the Republic of Georgia during the Russian invasion of the county in 2008.
Ashley and her parents, Joseph and Teah have seen telling their story and rallying support for Congressman Smith since they saw Welle’s deceitful attacks.
Prompted by Joe’s comment on MMM on Friday, I caught up with Ashley and Teah during a Karate competition in Jackson on Saturday afternoon. See their videos below:Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Smith, Congress, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Ashley Evans, Congressman Chris Smith, Joey Evans, Monmouth County News, Sophia Evans, Teah and Joseph Evans, Teah Evans | Comments Off on The Evans Family Rallies For Congressman Chris Smith

Candidate chants for victory In Jackson and Allentown–towns he called racist
The congressional candidate who proclaimed last winter that the people of Howell, Jackson, Allentown and Millstone “are not there yet” in the fight against racism and discrimination, this week visited Jackson and told his small group of supporters gathered in private home that there are enemies in this country lurking in food stores and restaurants.
Josh Welle, the young Virginia registered voter trying to turn his life around by getting elected to congress in New Jersey, told the guests of Jackson resident Henry Walker that he is one of 20-25 military veterans throughout the country who are running for congress “… because some of the enemies are here in our own country. “Now they don’t wear a uniform,” Welle said with bended knee, “and you don’t always know what the look like, but you can hear it,” he said as he used the international sign language gesture for crazy, “you can sense it at a food store or at a restaurant.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2018 elections, CD-4, Josh Welle Lies, Welle the Weasel | 3 Comments »
By Greg Kelly, MonmouthBeachLife
The first, Alexander G. Cattell, represented NJ in the U.S. Senate from 1866 to 1871. The other, William W. Barbour, was a U.S. Senator for NJ from 1931 to 1943. Both men were Republicans.
Cattell was one of the area’s first major developers as part of the Monmouth Beach Association. He owned a large house on Ocean Avenue. Barbour, a borough native born in July 1888, also served as Rumson’s mayor. He was the son of Colonel William Barbour, who was also an original developer of MB.
A little more digging showed me that the daughter of Senator H. Alexander Smith (a Republican who served NJ from 1944 to 1959) was married at the St. Peter’s Church of Galilee in town. She married a member of the Dominick family, which would produce its own senator, Peter H. Dominick, a Republican who served Colorado from 1963 to 1975. And one more — the uncle of Senator Nicholas F. Brady (a US senator for NJ during 1982) owned a large house on Ocean Avenue in MB.
So Monmouth Beach knows something about US senators.
