Bridgegate mastermind explains why Guadagno really lost

ABERDEEN — Confessed “Bridgegate” mastermind David Wildstein downplayed the effect of the scandal on Kim Guadagno, the Republican who lost the race Tuesday to succeed Chris Christie as governor. “Bridgegate was part of the Christie fatigue,” Wildstein told NJ Advance Media. “But New Jersey is one of the most Democratic states in the country and electing… Read the rest of this entry »

Guadagno tells veterans: Kneeling for anthem is not right

TOMS RIVER — Republican nominee for New Jersey governor Kim Guadagno told a group of military veterans Saturday morning that while the U.S. constitution gives people the right to kneel in protest during the National Anthem, that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do. “As governor, I would have to set an example,” Guadagno, the… Read the rest of this entry »

In Middletown: Guadagno hits Murphy on ‘sanctuary state’

MIDDLETOWN — Republican gubernatorial candidate Kim Guadagno Wednesday returned to a campaign theme of slamming “sanctuary cities and states” when asked about Tuesday’s terror attack in New York, though that issue does not apply to what happened. The Republican also said she would “not jump to any conclusions” about a “diversity lottery system” for immigration that… Read the rest of this entry »

We Need a Governor — from Monmouth Beach

By Greg Kelly

I recently launched a website about my native town of Monmouth Beach and it just so happens that a resident of that great community is running for Governor of New Jersey, Kim Guadagno.

So I thought I’d offer some local perspective on a state concern. I’m backing Kim on November 7 and it’s an easy vote for me.

I’ve known Kim since she first ran for political office in Monmouth Beach back 12 years ago. As I’ve followed her career, I’ve learned that Kim already has to be exceptional just to survive. She’s a Republican from New Jersey (a state that twice voted against Abraham Lincoln), is married to a seasoned judge (husband Mike recently retired from the NJ Superior Court) and is mother to three smart kids (some went to school with my children for a while).

In light of the recent vile and mean-spirited Star-Ledger editorial endorsement of Phil Murphy in the governor’s race, I’d like to offer the main reasons why Kim gets my vote: Read the rest of this entry »

Middlesex County Jail Released 36 Illegal Aliens, Including Child Molesters

Middlesex County has been a sanctuary county since June when their all Democrat Freeholder Board voted to release criminally charged illegal aliens from custody in defiance of a federal order that the inmates be held for 48 hours until U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement Officers take custody of them.

Last week ICE agents arrested 36 of the criminally charged illegals, including a Filipino charged with sexual assault of a minor, a Mexican charged with child abuse, and a Mexican charged with criminal restraint of a minor, that Warden Mark Cranston had released from custody.

Bill Clinton: NJ voters are stark raving crazy and foam at the mouth

Former President Bill Clinton did not call voters who don’t want New Jersey to be a sanctuary state “deplorable” yesterday when he was holding Phil Murphy’s hand in Bergen County yesterday.  He said we are stark raving crazy and prone to foam at the mouth, according to Politico’s coverage.

The hope is that the message can “set enough people on fire,” “get them foaming at the mouth” and “drive them stark raving crazy” so they head to the polls, Clinton said.

Clinton probably didn’t mean the kind of foaming at the mouth that memories of his presidency usually evoke. Read the rest of this entry »

That Phil Murphy is one weird dude

It’s no wonder Phil Murphy won’t agree to be interviewed by NJTV’s  Michael Aron or Tommy G.  He’s weird.  He doesn’t get New Jersey and he doesn’t understand state government.

If you missed the debate last night, watch it before you vote on November 7.

Murphy came across as your drunk uncle who knows all the problems but changes the subject or gets combative when pressed on how he’ll actually pull off his magical plans.

What the number one item in the Murphy-Guadagno debate should be tonight

By Stuart J. Moskovitz

Abbott Districts. This was a hairbrained idea created in 1985 by the New Jersey Supreme Court and defined in 1997 that determined that the Constitution required that each and every student in New Jersey must have an absolutely equal education. This wasn’t an issue of race or any other means by which we generally define the need for equal education. It was a determination that poorer school districts have less money to pay for education and therefore the State was required to assure that the poorer districts received state funding to equal the amount paid for education by local wealthier districts.
